  1. Jaw Fossil

    Hi everyone, I'm not very involved with fossil collecting (more into sport cards as the name implies), but I bought this jaw fossil a while back and would like to request some identification help. Thanks guys!
  2. Jaw Fossil

    Hi everyone, I bought this fossil a while back and its been a great conversation piece at my apartment. Thought you'd all like to see as well.
  3. Cave Hyena Jaw Legit?

    I was thinking about buying this cave hyena jaw but am not knowledgable enough to know if it's legit or not..., they say its from Mongolia .Any advice would be appreciated!
  4. I'm considering purchasing this platecarpus jaw. The only thing is......I'm not sure its platecarpus at all. It certainly looks mosasaur to me, but something about the spacing between the teeth seems off.....maybe halisaurus? The jaw is 8.66 inches long, it's from morocco (ouled abdoun basin), and it's currently labeled as platecarpus ptychodon. any help would be greatly appreciated!
  5. What jaw is this

    I bought this fossil at the Tucson Gem and Mineral show and I was wondering what it was. It may have been a marine creature because these people had a lot of mosasaurus and shark teeth.
  6. Someone I read a joking statement that paleontology is primarily "the study of fossil teeth and jaws." Teeth and jaw fossils do appear to predominate.... I understand why tooth fossils are common- teeth are very hard, and many creatures replace teeth repeatedly. But why are jaw fossils common?
  7. Mosasaur Skull/Mosasaur Jaw ID

    I was able to attend the Tucson show over the weekend, and as always, found some goodies I could afford. Both of these are from Morocco, and both are still quite a mess, unfortunately. The partial skull has had some filling on the teeth, but I know that's usually the standard procedure before selling, and I understand that. I'd love to have both of them prepared and have an identification tag for them if possible. I know they can be notoriously difficult to identify at times, but I thought it'd be worth a try!
  8. Found these teeth in a Florida creek

    Found these teeth/jaw bone in a Florida creek. I researched it to be of Bison teeth which would make sense but found some similarities of Camel which would be interesting to find in Florida. I was wondering about what years it may be from?
  9. Dyrosaurus jaw

    From the album Dinosaurs and Reptiles

  10. Unkown mammal jaw from kemkem

    This is a 4cm long unknown jaw from the kemkem formation of Morocco.
  11. Hi there, I'm new to the fossil forum, and was hoping I could get help in identifying this jaw. It was found in Marmarth, North Dakota in the Hell Creek Formation. I don't have any more specifics on location besides that. I hope the pictures are detailed enough, but if not, I can post more. I am thinking it has to be some kind of fish, but I am not completely sure. Any direction or help would be wonderful! Thank you so much!
  12. mosasaur jaw from Morocco

    Now that my mosasaur jaws from Morocco that I purchased from @RJB have arrived I am wondering if anyone can help me identify the species.
  13. Mystery Morocco jaw

    Hi everyone. Can anyone please identify this? I assume it must be a jaw of some kind, and is said to be from Morocco, but I've not seen anything quite like it before. I wondered if it might be something like Basilosaurus?
  14. beach find

    wondering if anyone had any thoughts about if this looked like a type of bone. Found it on east coast beach.
  15. 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.
  16. Sus scrofa jaw from Pleistocene Russia.

    From the album Ice Age Europe

    Top down view.
  17. Sus scrofa jaw from Pleistocene Russia.

    From the album Ice Age Europe

    A great juvenile wild boar jaw from the Pleistocene of Russia. You can see the front tusk/incisor still erupting. I've wanted one of these for a while now but they are quite rare. I love it! The tusk is actually loose and comes put. I think that's great! I can see the whole root.
  18. Jaw Bone

    I have been hunting snakes in a small patch of woods by my house. I live in central Oklahoma in a urban area. The woods has dry creek that floods when it rains. My 7 year old son and I find bones each time. No clue what they are. I know they are old and his excitement at finding them is priceless. Looking for help.
  19. Hello. Just another mosasaur jaw thread! This one puzzles me a little. Obviously it has the replaced teeth, as usual. But it doesn't look right to me. For starters, all of those straight edges. It looks an awful lot like a composite. Almost like three or four chunks of jaw cobbled together with some random skull bones. Am I being paranoid, could these be natural breaks? My experience tells me that jaws don't break along these straight lines, but I thought I'd throw it out there to see what people think. Thanks for your help.
  20. Isle of Wight finds

    Hi, After deciding to post an October find item, I thought I would post these photos for your suggestions. I prepped them all last weekend at the same time as the spine. Photos 1 -3 only had its edge showing and the matrix is really hard so the engraver came out, yeah it still works. Held my breath and went for it and managed not to break what I think is some turtle shell, it is 4cm long and 4mm thick. I am reluctant to prep the other side and remove all of the matrix as I do not want to ruin it completely. It is not much to look at but for the size of the fragment. The photos are self explanatory. The following ones are from the same rock at the other end. A chunk of bone, maybe part of a jaw it is 3.5 cm long. It was not until I prepped it that the tiny jaw 1cm long with 6 teeth sockets appeared to one side, one socket has a broken tooth in it, not my fault. Initially I only saw the end, I thought turtle shell as the profile was V shaped suggesting an edge. I dare not try to uncover it anymore It could be a small croc or maybe Amia which is known from the same matrix which is part of the Atherfield Clay formation, I really have no idea. Any experts out there please jump in with what you think it is. Cannot post it in finds as I cannot ID it, sugar.
  21. This is my attempt at arranging the teeth. I thought it would be fun to try. I have no idea how to construct the actual jaw or how to do proper dentition. Dog provided for reference. The photos were too large to post so here are the links: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6MnBNbnlfcTJPcFk/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6cFVDbVBaclBaanM/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6VVNWdkVBNGVpMzQ/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6NnJTMldiT08wbEk/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6Q3h2cGhwTVN2VFk/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6QWhPc2ROX1JRT1U/view?usp=sharing
  22. New in this hobby. Need help on some items.

    I got interested in this a few months ago when i found the teeth/jaw on the river Danube Im from Europe which as far as i know was in water back then ? Hope you can give me info on what are the bones/ribs/jaw from and approximately age
  23. A friend of mine proposed to buy this piece. What do you think? thanks to everybody
  24. I was going through a large group of very small Triassic coprolites today and came upon this. Since there was a beat up Koskinonodon tooth in with the coprolites, I'm wondering if this could be a jaw or maxillary fragment from a juvenile. The person who found the coprolites said that he found a lot of Koskinonodon teeth in the area as well some from Phytosaur, Apachesaurus, Coelophysis, Postosuchus, and Revueltosaurus. What do you all think? Jaw or maxillary? Amphibian, fish or something else? If this is amphibian, can anyone identify the bone above and to the left of the teeth? My cat votes amphibian @Carl check it out!
  25. Hello fossil-lovers! What do you think of this fossil jaw: is it real or fake? It seems a bit too perfect to me. The seller told me it was a mosasaur jaw from Brazil. It definitely looks like mosasaur material (teeth), but I've never heard of a mosasaur from Brazil, and in my books there isn't a single mention of any mosasaur species found in Brazil. I bought the fossil in a small shop selling only fossils and minerals (not online), somewhere in Auvergne, France. In my opinion: real teeth, stuck into a fake jaw. What do you think? Thanks for your help! Max
