  1. Crocodile jaw

    i don't know much at all about Cretaceous crocodiles other than there were a ton of them. From what I hear, so many it's difficult to ID even if you have a good amount of an animals fossils, unless it's one of the number of very unique looking species that have a clear signiture. Sadly I'm guessing this fits into the former;difficult/near impossible to ID from just this. *Its a Cretaceous species, from the second phosphatic layer of the phosphate mines in the suburb of Khouribga, Morocco.
  2. Beaumaris jaw ID

    G'day everyone! Today I was able to go down to Beaumaris and have a hunt. I found some nice fossils but one find stood out. As I was about to leave the site I found this small jaw amongst the shingle. I am not sure what animal it is from but I am thinking fish. It could be mammal but terrestrial mammal material is very rare to find at this site. Thanks, Daniel
  3. Cow jaw?

    Hi guys, I think this one might be a cow but either way it's quite old based on where we found it. Just curious if anyone could give more insight, as we found some other small pieces of assorted bones / ball joints in this creek bed while metal detecting / fossil hunting. If you need more pictures, let me know. As always, I appreciate the knowledge here. PS: There are two separate jaws (obvious by # of teeth). The lighter colored one appears to be a little younger / less weathered. The darker one is basically wood composite at this point.
  4. Xiphactinus jaws advice

    I need some advice here. It's been a dream of mine to have a xiphactinus jaw, and here I have two. They are both dentaries: right and left side. (Let me say I will not be purchasing these for probably a good few years.) I wanted to know if it's possible to separate them and remount them to make an inflated lower jaw? I would probably have to send them out to have a professional do it because I have a feeling this is a job for the masters.
  5. Real Mosasaur Specimen?

    Is this a real Globidens Aegyptiacus Mosasaur jaw specimen? As I am fully aware there are many fake Mosasaur jaws on the market where the bone is made from plaster and the matrix from composite sand. I was wondering if any body could confirm this for me?
  6. Miocene Jaw Segment ID

    Hello, I made a trip to Calvert Cliffs (Miocene) recently and found this interesting jaw segment with four teeth. It looks like some sort of fish to me, but I was wondering if anyone with more knowledge on this topic could tell me exactly what fish it is. Thanks, Evan EDIT: here are the measurements... Jaw... Length: 49mm, Height (including teeth): 27mm, Width: 10mm... Now for a single tooth... height: 11mm-13mm (depending on the tooth), Length: 6mm, Width: 4mm P.S. I tried to post additional pictures but the forum said I could only post 3.95 mb. the photo I origionally posted was 3 mb. I will try to attatch more photos in the comments.
  7. Fossil teeth and jaw fragment

    I have actually had a small fossil for years, but had forgotten about it & the way I got it is sort of funny. 2002 I went with my then roommate on a trip to the John Day fossil beds state park in Oregon for my birthday. Got to walk around the painted hills and then the paths in the fossil beds. At one point my foot slipped off a path & slid down maybe 2 feet (of course I hit the ground). Got up & continued on my merry way after brushing the dirt off. Several miles down the road later I started feeling something in my shoe & figured it was just a pointy rock. Turns out it was a small fossil of a partial jaw with teeth in it. Apparently the critter it belonged to wanted an after life snack... Just over 1 cm long x 1 cm wide and weighing a stunning 0.8 gm. The John Day fossils are late Eocene to late Miocene. Any idea what this originally belonged to? I know it isn't much to go on, but I figured I'd try.
  8. Help needed with this jawbone

    Picked this up in a little shop while vacationing in Alaska. Would love to get more information on this. All help is appreciated.
  9. Please ID

    I wish I had a clue here! I am the nature and wildlife person people come to to identify live things. So now I need someone to help me ascertain if there are fossils in here. This is a soft, porous stone that was in a bed of ornamental river rocks, near the St. Lucie River, in Martin county, FL. When I grabbed it I thought it was an owl pellet. But it's a rock. Is that a jaw in there? and bones...? Thanks.
  10. Big Brook NJ Find

    Last one. Looks to me like a jawbone with embedded teeth. Any ideas?
  11. Hi all, I'm a new member here, just joined not long ago and I have been wanting to purchase a Spinosaurus jaw. I was wondering if any of you can tell if it is real or fake? I've also been wanting to buy Theropod complete foot (any species), anyone know some reputable sellers? I just want the toes, claws etc. Thanks!
  12. White River Jaw

    Looking for help. Found near Lusk Wyoming in the White River Formation. Someones mandible but not sure. Horse ? Rhino? other Thanks for any help.
  13. Afternoon all, I picked this up today in a flea market, the seller had no idea where it came from as it was in the place when she took it over. So sorry I have zero info. It seems to be a real fossil and not a fake, even if it isnt real I only paid a few pounds for it! Cheers in advance. Tom

  15. Pine Cliff NC Trip #2

    Hey guys I went to Pine Cliff NC again.(I went Sunday aswell ) This time was a bit more interesting, though not as big teeth some other stuff. I found a fired .22 bullet which is just great. Found some bear poop, even better. I found some cool shells and what apears to be a fossilized tiny mammal jaw fragment. I also found a ray mouth plate which I haven't found before. Does anything stand out to you? anyone know what these are? Possible jaw fragment anyone know what this could be? anyone know the species?
  16. I may have made a breakthrough?

    Ok so a while ago I posted a topic in this thread about a Manemergus jaw bone. The seller told me it was from the Goulmima region of Morocco so I thought, well, it must be Manemergus. But something about it just did not feel right. So tonight I saw a picture of a skull from the Elasmosaur Libonectes, and at that moment the Manemergus ID went out the door. I realized the jaw I had was identical to the jaw of Libonectes. This prompted me to do a comparison to the other Elasmosaur, Zarafasaurus. Zarafasaurus nearly matches, but not enough. I'm now 99% confident this is a jaw section from Libonectes. Anybody agree? Opinions are welcomed
  17. This is one for the ages! (Maybe?)

    I found this jaw while wandering the auction formation. It's labeled as Manemergus, a plesiosaur similar to Trinacromerum! I have an interest in plesiosaurs so this would be a dream come true if the ID is correct. Also, the two teeth are associated. The seller did not disclose the locality which is concerning, and a size measurement is not told so you'll have to use the hands as judgement.
  18. Moroccan fish? Jaw

    Any ideas folks? Kem kem matrix. Cube is 1cm3 @LordTrilobite @Troodon @Tidgy's Dad
  19. 70% real spinosaurus skull?

    Here is a fossil I just saw on an auction site. Apparently the Spinosaurus skull is 70% fossil. Is this for real?
  20. Hi Some time ago a postet a jaw from the Kem Kem in the "is it real" section. The jaw obviously had some repairs using the typical sand/glue material. However, it was not 100% clear to what level the jaw has been repaired/altered/faked. I am a scientist (but not a palentologist) and I did not want that uncertainty. Therefore, I decided to test our conclusions by removing the sand/glue mixture using an airscribe (Paleotools ME 9100). I thought I post the results here as potentially useful educational material. Maybe it helps you guys when buying material from Morocco. This is how the jaw looked like prior to the prep. When removing the sand with the airscribe, the difference between natural matrix (compressed sand) and artificial matrix (sand/glue mixture) is VERY obvious. The natural matrix comes off easily and seperates very well from the fossilized bone. The sand/glue mixture is much stronger and adheres to the bone. blue color: natural matrix (compressed sand) red color: artifical matrix (sand/glue mixture)
  21. Mammal Tooth/Jaw ID help needed!

    Hello! This is my first post so I hope I am following all of the protocol:) . My family and I are amateur surface hunters. Mostly along the beaches searching for shark's teeth, mouth plates, and various other fossils. My father found this on Edisto Beach, South Carolina this past weekend. It was partially buried in the sand, but he could see the outline under the sand and pulled it up. He discovered what appears to be a partially fossilized mammal jaw. It looks to be a horse or other hooved animal jaw. I was unable to find a similar looking tooth online. These are just the photos I snapped on the beach. I can post better ones if needed. Would love any help or pointing in the right direction! Thank you for your time!
  22. Whose jaw is this?

    hi All, Saw this for sale from China. No additional info. Based upon other items that the buy has for sale, I'd say Miocene or Pleistocene. It's clearly mammal. Looks camel-y to me, but I'm no mammal expert. Any thoughts? thanks!
  23. Small Jaw ID needed

    I found this jaw section (?) while digging in Bakersfield. Anyone have any ideas about its origin? I am thinking fish but what do I know, I have never found a jaw before. Thank you.
  24. Jaw bone with teeth

    Found this on the beach today. I know some folks have found horse teeth so maybe this part of a horse jaw?
  25. Small KemKem Jaw

    Hi Below please find some pictures of a jaw from the Kem Kem. The length is about 15cm. When I bought the jaw I assumed that the teeth have been composited in. However, when looking at it more closely I am not 100% sure about that any more. Probably a hot needle test can tell? Thanks for your opinion.
