  1. I found this on the beach near South Ponte Vedra, FL. I've been collecting fossils for a couple of years but have never seeing anything like it. I was not able to find anything similar via image search, probably because I could not describe it well. I would appreciate any help. It is about 3"x1.5"x1.5" and looks like a weird jaw to me.
  2. An interesting day and enjoyable also: Waist deep water, sun was shining, warm breeze. Fossil #1 Bird foot bone? 1 inch wide , slightly less than 2 inches in length: Which birds are candidates? Fossil #2 Very small Fossil #3 Osteoderm. Which animal? Any input on body position? Head, Tail. etc Fossil #4 A 2+ inch Jaw with 1 tooth All suggestions and comments Appreciated..
  3. A partial left dentary (lower jaw) of a small mosasaur. On the side there is a large pathology visible on the bone surface.
  4. So I got gobs of turtle stuff as many of us Floridians have and there were all kinds of these guys crawling and swimming around here. I was wondering if any of you have run across complete turtle/tortoise jaw/dentary's and might confirm these fragments might be. So here are 3 fragments that have interesting textures. All 3 have a gentle curve/arch/narrowing to them. 1) seems to have a porosity/pitting very similar to alligator or croc and I'm not sure if that immediately excludes it as part of a turtle jaw.
  5. Hello. Found this in the bottom of a box of rocks and shells that I bought at an estate sale in Southern Connecticut. Very curious if any of the experts on this forum know what this is. Thank you.
  6. A friend of mine proposed to buy this piece. What do you think? thanks to everybody
  7. Recently I bought this fossil. I have a rough idea what he could be. Though I'm really not sure as I have too little experience with such material. I don't want to jump to conclusions but I think it looks like a jaw. A Spinosaurus jaw perhaps? It was not me who took these photos, it was the seller who sent me these photos. So I hope that helps. Any information on this piece would be greatly appreciated.
  8. Is this a real jaw? Any red flags?
  9. This was a recent find on private land near Lusk Wyoming. It is an area with lots of oreodonts and lots of turtles. Always anxious to find anything different. I think that is likely a long shot because there is not much to go on ..... but there is plenty of brain power on this site. What struck me the most was how thick and heavy this bone feels. THe teeth are all broken off and both ends are gone. The ventral aspect is also broken off so its full depth in that direction is not appreciated either. Thanks in advance if any one has any ideas.
  10. Hi all, I found these (modern) bones on one of the beaches of the Cape of Good Hope (South Africa). All three bones were found about 3-5 m apart, so there is a chance that they come from the same animal. We have a rib, a vertebrae, and a jaw (missing the teeth). Anyone have a clue on the ID? Thanks in advance, Max
  11. Hello, I have another one that's puzzling me. At first I thought it was a jaw with teeth, but there is no enamel present. My next option was a crab type claw, but it's much larger than the typical ones we find in Virginia. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
  12. From the album Dinosaur teeth

    Baryonyx walkeri Cretaceous (Hauteruvian-Barremian) Wealden Clay East Sussex, England Difficult to tell if this piece is from a jaw but there is definitely a Baryonyx tooth in the matrix.
  13. Hello everyone! My name is Jack, and I am hoping one of you can help me out. To be clear, I have zero experience or knowledge when it comes to fossils. I absolutely loved dinosaurs when I was a kid, which led to my parents buying me this fossil of a partial mandible and teeth. I've starred at it ever since, always wondering what it might have been. I was cleaning out old boxes and I happen to find it! Last time I laid eyes on it was in the late 90's so I never had a chance to get it looked at. If there is anyone who would be able to give me some information on it, it would be fantastic. What kind of creature, what time period and quality of the sample etc.. any help would be greatly appreciated!
  14. NE Alabama Found under some creek pebbles thanks yall
  15. hi today i went to hunting in besom hill (oldham UK) and i found this that looks like a jaw with teeths. can anyone tell me if its really a jaw or its just my immagination the first one is a normal pic , the second one is cropped and i modified the contrast.
  16. Can anyone help me id these two pieces that I found when sifting for shark teeth from the Peace River near Wachula, FL? Thanks.
  17. Hey all, i found both of these in Big Brook, New Jersey. Cretaceous period. I am still new, and I just wanted to know if the first two pics could be a possible piece of a tooth? Dino fossils have been found here before, although I'm not going to get my hopes up. I was also wondering if the third pic is first off, fossilized, and if so, what did it come from?! I'm going to post more photos in the next message. thanks all. BrettCo
  18. Given to me by a friend in Iowa and prepped further by myself
  19. Hi all, Here is a partial jaw of a porcupine fish. It was found in Lee Creek, USA, and I think that it's from the Pliocene period. Does anyone know exactly how old this fossil is? Also, is it possible to set a species name on this? Best regards, Max
  20. I am looking at purchasing a mosasaur jaw section, what do you guys think about this one? I don't know much about telling if these types of jaws are real, only good at the more obvious ones. But the yellowing between the teeth and their roots seems a little odd to me?
  21. Here's another jaw I found on the Brazos River. Hope someone can help me id it. The total piece is 4 inches long and the length of the longest tooth is 3/8inch across the top of the crown.
  22. Found by a friend in the Peace River. Is this a vole jaw? I know it is some kind of small mammal but never heard of it before. Each mark = 1/2", so a little less than 1 1/2". Sorry for the pic quality - best we could do at the time.
  23. Any ideas for what this jaw belongs to? Pleistocene river gravel from the Brazos in SE Texas. The teeth are either very worn, or the crowns have broken off. Thanks!
  24. I bought a nice partial mosasaur skull recently and here I will share the process of prepping it a bit. I don't think I'll remove the bones from the matrix. But there's definitely some stuff that can be uncovered. There are definitely part of both frontal bones of the skull roof. The underside of the frontal is visible. There is also part of a jaw visible. I'm not quite sure yet as to which part it is. It could be either dentary, pterygoid or maxilla. Right now I'm slightly leaning towards the back of the maxilla (with the inside being visible). But time will hopefully tell. There are also a few as of right now unidentified bones. There are at least five teeth in the piece. Only four are clearly visible. The fifth is a replacement tooth that is only barely visible on the top of the jaw in an open hole. Unprepped state as I bought it. Some photos after a number of hours of prepping. It's quite slow going since the bones are fairly soft. Back of the jaw. A view from the other side of the jaw. On the bottom left the hints of the fifth tooth can be made out. View of the frontal bone. The midline is visible but the bones are broken in to a lot of separate pieces. The frontal bones are pointing to the right and the midline is roughyl horizontal in the photo. Two anterior teeth with roots and an unidentified skull bone broken in two. My guess is that is belongs somewhere near the frontal bones. More to come in the future!
  25. Hey, A friend of mine found this in the sediment on the bank of the Suwannee River, FL. Any information on this piece would be very helpful. Thank you! Bob
