  1. Oreodont id

    I’m thinking about adding this little guy to the vert fossil of the month(even though it probably won’t win this month with the competition). I would like to get a positive id and as much info as possible. I’m still learning my way around the white river formation. So far I freakin love it! Anyway, here’s my little guy-I still have more to put together, but the pieces are a little small and complicated.
  2. Enchodus jaw or something else?

    I found this hunting a creek in the Eutaw, Al area - Late Cretaceous. Could this be Enchodus or something else entirely?
  3. Hey everyone! I recently found these items which are claimed to belong to Chthonosuchus lethei. However after some Googling, I found that this species doesn’t appear to exist outside of this dinosaur handbook. If possible, could you guys please help me identify what these species these specimens might belong to? There is a tooth, vert and what is said to be a juvenile jaw section. These are claimed to be from the Kem-Kem bed of Morocco. Many thanks. The set, with info card: Tooth: Vert: Jaw section:
  4. I was wondering if it was possible to determine if you could tell if a tooth came from the top or bottom jaw? If you can is this true for all kinds of animals. I bet you could on a tiger shark because the bottom and top face different directions. Could you tell on a megalodon tooth or a tyrannosaur tooth or any dinosaur tooth for that matter. I don't have any teeth that I need to determine, just a question that popped in my head.
  5. Some Sort of Jaw?

    Hey Fossil Gang, I had a surprising find along Canon River in Northfield Minnesota (coordinates 44.461901, -93.158759). I was skatingboarding and noticed that the banks of the river were pretty rocky so I thought it would be worth investigating, sure enough I found what appeared to be some sort of bone attached to a piece of rock protruding about half way out of the sandy soil. To me it looks like some sort of mammal jaw although I'm not sure (new to fossil hunting). I'm not sure but it seems to be more modern. If any of y'all have any input it would be greatly appreciated!
  6. Mosasaur Jaw And Tooth Fossil ID

    Hi everyone! Fairly new to all this . I have seen a few pieces of Jaw and Teeth that I would like but after reading some interesting discussion on this forum, I do doubt the authenticity. I understand that elements of the fossils may be real and there will always be an element of repair work with these fossils but are the bellow real? I have added 3 examples (multiple photos). Hopefully you will be able to help and I appreciate and advice in advance !! thanks Steve
  7. Excited to have found this little gem in the Post Oak Creek matrix. Question is.....Claw or Jaw? I have found some crustacean claws and while similar, the oblong indents are making me question. It looks very much like some of the Permian amphibian jaws. But that's really odd. So please, help me out! Jaw or Claw? Thanks for any info!! A couple of crab claws (that I am 99% sure of at least) from the same matrix. Has kind of similar texture, but different color. A Permian Amphibian jaw for comparison:
  8. Hi, i saw this mosasaur jaw for sale. I think it may be real, although I'm not 100% sure. Says it's from Phosphate deposits of Khourigba, Morocco. I have seen other jaws that are obviously false, but with this one I have doubts. I had to darken and change the brightness of the images, as the originals were too bright. I would appreciate your comments please.
  9. Hi everyone ! I need your help, can you please tell me if this fossil seems to be real for you? I have unfortunately only one photo... Here the description associated to the photo : Sarcosuchus imperator, jaw piece, Tegana Formation (Cenomanian), Cretaceous 95 million years old, Kem Kem beds, Morocco. Thanks!
  10. Here is a tiny jaw with three teeth. It is small. The three teeth together measure about 5/8 inches wide. The marks on the rule are .25 inches. Thanks for your help. The item is from a beach near Jensen Florida.
  11. Oligocene Canine Lower Jaws

    This June I went hunting the Oligocene White River formation in Wyoming and found two lower Canine jaws. I could us a little help in identifying them. I was thing the second one could be a bear dog. Its a juvenile with new eye teeth starting to erupt but the front of the jaw is missing.
  12. Strange little jaw bone ?

    I think this is a lower jaw bone but the more I look at it, I’m not sure. Have never found anything similar. It looks like it would’ve had 8 teeth. @Harry Pristis
  13. Help me identify this jaw

    Hello everyone, someone offered me this partial jaw. Clearly it was found in the Guangzhou province and should come from Taiwan. By the look of it I think it's a hyena or hyena like animal. But I can't decide if it's an adcrocuta jaw or a Dinocrocuca jaw. What are you opinion? Can anyone help me?
  14. Fish/lizard jaws?

    Hello, I would like to know whether these jaws belong to reptiles or fish. I've had a look at catfish jaws, but they aren't similar at all. I've also had a look at uromastyx jaws, but they also aren't similar. I don't know what else they could be. From Miocene of Ruwais, Abu Dhabi, UAE.
  15. This partial jaw was found on a beach near Jensen Florida. Each tooth is about one half inch front to back and the entire jaw segment about 3 cm. Thanks for all your help. I originally said one inch but that was incorrect, as one person pointed out, so I corrected it to read one half inch.
  16. Iguanodon Jaw? Looks suspicious

    Hello, I saw this for sale, now, am I right that this is not an Iguanodon jaw as it is being sold as? I had a compare of Iguanodon jaws and they tend to have the tooth ... holes? slots? Down the side with lots of little splitter teeth going through. Whereas this one seems like it has actual tooth sockets. So, am I right to be suspicious and that this is in fact a crocodile? Or am I wrong and it is an Iguanodon jaw? It is 5 inches long, broken and repaired. Found on Isle of Wight. Thanks
  17. Very old jawbone section and teeth

    Found in south central South Dakota. Miocene. Assuming this is from some kind of small mammal but not sure. Thanks @Harry Pristis
  18. Jaw and teeth ID

    Hi! I am busy going through a collection at a museum. This fossil is unidentified, any ideas. Only have these two pics, might get more tomorrow. I have no details on the specimen, but I'm guessing this specimen is from the Karoo supergroup and Permian in age. Hoping somebody will recognize it, but any help would be appreciated.
  19. I need some help with some I.D.'s. These were both found in some matrix I collected recently in Craven County N.C. The exposure is Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, ?Comfort member. The site produces a few shark and fish teeth, crab claws, echinoids and starfish ossicles. It is a limestone / bryozoan hash. It is possible of course that this stuff is recent or even possibly Pleistocene as I have found pieces of mastodon teeth very close by. First is a small mammal tooth, 4mm long by 2.2 mm wide. Next is a small jaw piece with teeth. I first thought fish, then was thinking lizard. But I really have no idea. The entire section is 10.6 mm long. the teeth are very very small.
  20. Huge spinosaurus jaw?

    Hello! I see for sale this huge jaw (50cm) with some teeth. It’s from Kem Kem. What do you think? Any idea for The correct price? Thank you!
  21. small kem kem jaw sections

    I'm quite interested in these small pieces. Sold as small reptile jaws from Kem Kem. The longer one is approximately 4cm, the shorter one is around 2cm. So very small jaws. I'm guessing, given the circular tooth sockets, they are from a small or juvenile species of crocodile? Or could they be from a type of lizard? If anyone can take a quick look, that would be great. I'm guessing they are much too small to get an actual species, but would be nice to know if croc or lizard. Thanks
  22. Kem Kem crocodile jaw

    I won this a week or so ago on an auction. It was sold as undescribed pseudosuchia with a description "dog-faced crocodile". 2.33 inches long. From Ifzounane Formation, Kem Kem Basin. Description says it has been analyzed by experts as a new species. Nothing comes up for "dog-faced crocodile" other than this very fossil. Anyway, I meant to post it up here to get looked at but forgot about it until now. Anyway, here's some photos. If anyone has any ideas what it could be from, that be great It also came with a pair of nifty X-Ray type photos.
  23. Hello. A while ago I purchased this specimen from a highly reputable and established seller. It's a T-Rex jaw fragment from Lance Creek, Wyoming, and was a surface find (see photos of the original specimen in situ; according to the finder, "the piece in question is at the very bottom left, on top of the edge of the longer bigger bone; the tooth grooves are face-down."). I'm reaching out to Fossil Forum for guidance along the following lines: 1) What part of the jaw is this most likely from? I've been studying images on-line at a cursory level, but I can't find the distinction convex part of the bone that my specimen has (the part that sticks out like a thin ridge). Any thoughts or, even better, photos of comparable specimens? 2) I trust the original seller, but since it was not found as part of a larger Rex specimen, I figured I'd ask for your confirmation: is this almost certainly a T-Rex? I'm fairly knowledgeable regarding teeth, but not mandibles. Thank you all very much in advance; any insight would be deeply appreciated. With best regards and gratitude, Ryan
  24. small skull or jaw bone?

    Im having trouble ID'ing what I believe to be a small skull or jaw bone. it was found in a river bed known to be a popular fossil site. it's a about the size of a strawberry.
  25. Hello, can someone take a look at these and let me know if they are ok? A pair of Mosasaur jaws I quite like. 1st is a Globidens -- from Phosphate Beds. 5.12 inches. Seller says that the tooth is glued, but was found with the jaw. 2nd is Prognathodon -- says it has been glued and has some small fractures filled. Also from Phosphate beds. Many thanks anyone who can help!
