  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. A friend of mine proposed to buy this piece. What do you think? thanks to everybody
  7. 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!
  8. 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
  9. Hello, This is my first post of this forum and I would like to show you some of my unidentified macro plant spores and vertebrate remains found in residue from fallen bits of plant debris bed picked up at Yaverland IOW, photos were taken under AmScope USB microscope, hope you like them. Still to experiment with the Toupview stacking software, watch this space. The Albaneretontid jaw holds nine teeth, this is the one I hope to get my stacking software working on. I have thrown in a close up of a termite coprolite apparently they have not changed in shape (hexagonal) for 75 million years. These are so abundant in the plant debris bed residue you end up ignoring them after a while. The rest I have not identified yet and are actually mega spores I believe. Also I found a tiny insect wing on the surface of some Bembridge limestone and a section of reed from a different piece. This is why the Isle of Wight is such a special place for me.
  10. 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!
  11. Partial Jaw with Tooth.

    Howdy all~ This is another piece I found on the James River recently. Looks to be part of a jaw..with a snaggle tooth? ..Well that would be my guess. Very curious to know the species. Thanks for the help.
  12. Jaw bone with tooth?

    What might this be? Am i right in thinking its a jaw piece?
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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?
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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)

  22. 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!!!
  23. 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
  24. Is this a real jaw? Any red flags?
  25. 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!
