  1. Jaw bone with tooth?

    What might this be? Am i right in thinking its a jaw piece?
  2. White River Colodon?

    Hey all! Getting to work cataloging our finds from a very productive trip to Wyoming. Me and our friends can't quite figure this one out, our closest guess is Colodon. We aren't entirely sure though, and there's not too much reference material for Colodon. Collected on a ranch north of Lance Creek Wyoming in the White River formation.
  3. New here to the forum and to fossil hunting. Found a few teeth over the past few weeks was hoping to get some help with identification and where to find more in the low country. Living in mount pleasant with access to a 23 foot bay boat as well as a few paddle boards. Would love to meet some great people with the same interests as myself and my wife. We would love to host some new friends on our boat for some hunting. If you are in the area and wouldn't mind the company of some newbs that are eager to learn and hunt send me a PM. We are looking forward to becoming knowledgeable on the area and meeting others that share our interests. I have attached a picture of a few of the things we found any help on ID would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Help with Hell Creek Jaw ID

    I've had this jaw for some time now, but have no idea what it might belong to. It comes from Montana (Hell Creek Formation). At first glance I thought it was probably crocodile, but taking a closer look at the worn tooth in one of the sockets, I'm wondering if it's a piece of Edmontosaurus Jaw. I know it's hard to say from pictures alone, but I figured someone with a good knowledge of Hell Creek material might be able to help.
  5. Mammal Partial Jaw From Gray, TN

    Hello! A friend of mine found this fossil a long time ago on the grounds of Gray Fossil Site (before it was actually established). I believe it belongs to some sort of mammal, but since my main focus is on sharks and dinosaurs, I'm not quite sure. Anyone have an idea of what it may belong to?
  6. NSR!!!

    Short 3 hr NSR hunt between the 35 ft rise and the current 8 ft rise. I had very little area to hunt but still had a great day. The Tylosaur jaw section made my day. My new 4x4 saved me once again when I slid down the ditch while parking.
  7. Hi everyone, I'm very new to the world of fossil collecting and would appreciate some expert level input on the legitimacy of this mosasaur jaw. I realize there are many fake pieces circulating the market. Does anyone know what something like this is worth? Any assistance would be very helpful. Thank you!
  8. Florida Jaw Bone?

    Here is another Peace River find. I think it is part of a jaw bone. I know identification is difficult for partial pieces but this has a bulb that has what looks like a spot where a tooth had been. The bulb shape is on the right. The next photo shows it from the top and the last is from the side that is palm down.
  9. need help with Jaw fossil ID

    I found this fossil on the beach off the coast of North Carolina. It has a shark tooth on one side and a fossil that looks like it is part of a jaw on the other. Any ideas as to what this could be?
  10. Cervalces (Stag moose) Jaw?

    I'd really like to say with 100% certainty that this partial jaw is from a Stag moose (Cervalces scotti) but I have never held one in my hand before and it would be the rarest most coolest thing I've ever had the privilege to find so I want to make sure. I found this a few days ago on a gravel bar in a river in the midwest that produces pleistocene material. I hadn't found a thing all day long and there were footprints everywhere (many of my hunts are like this :D) but I found this high and dry upside down concealed to look like a stick. At first the dirt-covered pale looking teeth made me think of another cow jaw until I picked it up and realized I was holding what looked to be a jaw bone with the teeth of a gigantic deer. Brushing it off as an elk jaw until I got home and compared it to a cast of a Cervalces M3 and it was a PERFECT MATCH. I've taken side by side pictures with the cast tooth from a Cervalces and the stylid, size, shape, and everything seem to line up perfectly to me. My teeth are slightly more worn down than the cast which is why the crown appears taller but other than that I don't see any differences but I am not an expert in the slightest so I would love to hear the opinions of others on this one because I want to make sure that I get this ID right. Thanks! (I also included side by side comparisons with a jaw from a medium sized Bison from the same site)

  12. Who's jaw is this?!

    Ok, so I found this jaw in my grandfathers attic 3 years ago and I still have no idea what it is. Please help me out!!!
  13. Hi guys, I'm thinking about purchasing this mosasaur jaw. The seller says that it is natural and it looks very real. Just want to get a second opinion. Thank you so much! Jojo
  14. Is this a real jaw? Any red flags?
  15. Hi! Back with more from the estate sale. I'm guessing this is a jaw section from a Titanothere? It appears to be, but I'm new to the ID game and want to be sure. The estate contained other smaller teeth that also look like Titanothere/Brontothere, but I don't have an exact location as to where it was found. There were many Stylemys turtles in there as well, and I've had those looked at by a paleontologist at SDSM&T and they said the turtles were likely found in the White River formation of the Badlands. Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

  17. Partial fish jaw

    From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A partial fish jaw found on the Zandmotor, with one tooth (shiny black thing). Probably from a bream (Sparidae).
  18. A friend of mine proposed to buy this piece. What do you think? thanks to everybody
  19. Part of Jawbone?

    Hi there, We found this today on the beach at Walton-on-Naze, in Essex. We're keen to see if anyone can help identify the fossil. Thanks, G.
  20. North Sulphur River Jaw Chunk

    Found this chunk of jaw today at NSR. Does not look like mosasaur. I am thinking fish of some sort. Possibly Xfish?? You can see a new tooth protruding out the top as well as the bottom section of the broken tooth on the bottom. Thank you you as always for any help.
  21. Mastodon

    Is this mastodon tusk and jaw?
  22. Aguja Fm tooth, jaw, or what?

    I found this little guy going through some matrix from the Aguja formation, Brewster county, in west Texas. It is late Cretaceous. I can't tell if it is a tooth (as from a multituberculate mammal), a jaw section, or just a suggestively shaped rock. What do you think? I have attached the bottom, side, and top views. The hash marks are 1mm. Thanks for any help.
  23. Took an hour for a walk in a creek not far from where I live. We have had rains earlier this week so thought I would take a look at what washed out. This creek does not produce a ton but always gives up something if you look hard enough. Found a jaw section, possibly small mosasaur and a partial turtle scute. Wish I had more time to get out there but very pleased to have found this. And the turtle...
  24. Unknown fish jaw bone .

    I found this jaw bone in the chalk of Kansas and I have no idea what it came from .i am pretty Shure it's a fish as I only really find fish bones out where I hunt. Let me know what you think. It is hard to see but there are about 8 tooth studs in the bone.
  25. Mosasaur jaw ?

    I found these jaw pieces with tooth stubs in them ,I can't tell what they are from (I think mosasaur)
