  1. Mosasaurus jaw fragments

    Jaw fragments of a mosasaur.
  2. Found this in the finis shale formation (Graham) of Jacksboro, TX which is Pennsylvanian. Need help identifying.....Approximately 1 inch long. Thanks in advance for any help.
  3. fish jaw (Dapedium)

    From the album Holzmaden

    Detailed picture of: The jaw is 1.3 cm long and the biggest tooth 0.6 cm long.
  4. Hello I am looking for an edestus jaw I have a saltasaurus osteoderm 5.75 inch megalodon tooth along with many more shark teeth and Floridian fossils such as a partial Columbian mammoth tooth etc.
  5. Hello all! I saw this mosasaur jaw, and I'm wondering whether the bone is real. The teeth look pretty real to me, and they probably are because those are not worth faking; but I'm really not sure about the bone... The seller admits that glue was used for the jaw, but no restoration or enhancement. Also, I'm wondering whether the teeth come from the jaw or are separate teeth just glued on. I'd like your thoughts on this! Best regards, Max
  6. Hello! I recently obtained this Moroccan mosasaur jaw, which has a bone lodged up against it which I can't identify. I'm not very good with mosasaurs (yet). The bone is up at the top-left in these images. I had wondered if it was a partial vert, but I don't have the experience with Prognathodon just yet. I think there are some possibly skull elements in the block. Thanks!
  7. My first shot at prepping ANYTHING! I will describe by process with the hope of some constructive criticism. PIX 1: I used only dental picks for this Oreodont partial jaw as the matrix is soft. I also found that a Qtip with water, softened some of the tougher spots. PIX 2: I used a soft bristle brush to apply a dilute acetic acid which served well to remove the last of the residual matrix. PIX 3: I neutralized the acid with a soak in Sodium Bicarbonate PIX 4: Into the oven at 200 F for one hour to drive off all moisture. PIX 5: Into a 5% solution of Paraloid. I used Pyrex brand with a snap lid and seal that does not react with the Acetone nor does the lid seem to get gummed up with the Paraloid. The piece was still warm when I put it in the Paraloid solution and it bubbled vigorously for several minutes as the solution soaked in. All told the bubbles lasted for 1 hour. PIX 6: Cool shot of air escaping the piece. PIX 7: To slow down the evaporation of the Acetone, I sealed the piece in a ziplock and placed in at 25 F (note the snow!!! this is Minnesota) I could see the Acetone condensate on the bag. After 1 hour I opened the bag and let it dry completely. PIX 8: Finished and on the way to my 8 year old grandson in Florida!
  8. 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?
  9. I decided to make a Christmas Eve visit to Penarth, South Wales. I only found the one piece but it makes for a good early Christmas present. It's what's left of an early Jurassic ichthyosaur jaw. You can see a really good outline of where the jaw was, along with chunks of jaw bone that are still attached to the rock. The surface of the rock has a number of teeth showing which I'll look to prep out next year. Happy Christmas. Nick
  10. Any ideas on what this is? It comes from an estuarine upper Cretaceous formation in Eastern Mississippi. The first photo shows the tip of a needle. I'm new to micro paleo and finding it fascinating.
  11. From White River formation South Dakota. Has some appearance of Oreodont but it seems small.
  12. Can y'all take a stab at this upper scull? Whiteriver formation, South Dakota. Going to tackle prep on this but not until I have a few easier pieces under my belt.
  13. Rhizodont jaw

    From the album Scottish Carboniferous Sarcopterygians

    Rhizodont jaw Fife Coal Field, Midland Valley of Scotland Upper Carboniferous Westphalian A 310 mya
  14. 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
  15. Hey Everyone, Found this section of Jaw with 5 teeth, while river diving in SC. I'd appreciate your thoughts on ID.
  16. Crocodile lower jaw piece

    A nice lower jaw bone of a Phosphatosaurus gavialoides, a terrifying crocodile from the Eocene period that could measure up to 9 meters long. It is part of the Dyrosauridae family, and was very closely related to Sokotosuchus, from the Cretaceous period.
  18. Hello, I found several of these at an estate sale in Southern California. They were in a rusted tin can and found them interesting. This was an estate from a mineral collector and found the tin among thousands of mineral specimens that were for sale. First I thought they were some kind of mineral, but after washing them (they were covered in rust from the can), they looked to me more like small jaws with teeth. I have been looking online for weeks and can't find anything close to them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  19. I had a fun hunt today at NSR. I found a nice variety of fossils. My buddy made a friend with a small wild boar. We hiked 4 miles all together. Here's some pics of my finds. Mosasaur jaw section, Xiphactinus jaw section, Enchodus jaws and teeth, Shark teeth, Fish verts, Mosasaur tooth and verts, Tylosaur jaw fragment, Mystery bone and Old marble. The Mosasaur tooth was my first find of the day.
  20. This seems to me to be an unusual fossil. It looks like a partial jaw with 2 rows of teeth but I'm not sure. It comes from the same dredge near Houston Texas. In cleaning it has a strong crude oil like odor. I hope some out there will know just what it is. Thank you all in advance.
  21. This partial jawbone with 2 teeth is a bit different than others I have. It was found near Houston Texas in a dredge operation. Any help to identify the fossil would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
  22. I've done some online research looking for similar looking teeth but I'm really not sure of the animal this fossil comes from. It looks to me that there was a larger tooth at the end of the jawbone where there is a hole that is missing. It was recovered as others I've listed near Houston Texas. It was recovered from dredging. I hope someone can help to identify this specimen. Thank you all very much.
  23. So perplexed by this, there are oval teeth, circular ones, and one that looks human with a filling lol. Can't quite picture the bite, can someone help me out? This is the best my camera will do sorry.
  24. Enchodus palate

    Palate bone of an Enchodus. The whole bone as well as the fang seem to be abraded. Maybe it's been partially digested?
