  1. Mammal Tooth/Jaw ID help needed!

    Hello! This is my first post so I hope I am following all of the protocol:) . My family and I are amateur surface hunters. Mostly along the beaches searching for shark's teeth, mouth plates, and various other fossils. My father found this on Edisto Beach, South Carolina this past weekend. It was partially buried in the sand, but he could see the outline under the sand and pulled it up. He discovered what appears to be a partially fossilized mammal jaw. It looks to be a horse or other hooved animal jaw. I was unable to find a similar looking tooth online. These are just the photos I snapped on the beach. I can post better ones if needed. Would love any help or pointing in the right direction! Thank you for your time!
  2. Whose jaw is this?

    hi All, Saw this for sale from China. No additional info. Based upon other items that the buy has for sale, I'd say Miocene or Pleistocene. It's clearly mammal. Looks camel-y to me, but I'm no mammal expert. Any thoughts? thanks!
  3. Small Jaw ID needed

    I found this jaw section (?) while digging in Bakersfield. Anyone have any ideas about its origin? I am thinking fish but what do I know, I have never found a jaw before. Thank you.
  4. Jaw bone with teeth

    Found this on the beach today. I know some folks have found horse teeth so maybe this part of a horse jaw?
  5. Small KemKem Jaw

    Hi Below please find some pictures of a jaw from the Kem Kem. The length is about 15cm. When I bought the jaw I assumed that the teeth have been composited in. However, when looking at it more closely I am not 100% sure about that any more. Probably a hot needle test can tell? Thanks for your opinion.
  6. Mosasaur ID

    I'm really pleased to have acquired this lovely Moroccan mosasaur jaw this evening. I am flat broke, so I had to persuade/bully my family to all chip in as an early birthday present, but it's a lovely example, with a number of original in-situ teeth. I was wondering whether there might be enough there to narrow down the species? I included a British pound coin for scale, which I appreciate is not very useful for an international audience. It's 20x17 inches. The jaw, not the coin.
  7. Theropod lower left jaw?

    Hi, I saw this for sale, apparently a lower left jaw of a small theropod dinosaur. It is 12cm long and from the Kem Kem beds. It also apparently has predation marks on it. I wanted to ask if indeed this is a theropod lower jaw or if it is something else like a crocodile jaw. Also the description says it is probably from an Abelisaurid, is it possible to narrow it down to family level?. Thanks.
  8. found this on a spoil pile, dirt layer above soft limestone which sits above shale. Not from the area (Allen,Texas) so I don't know the period etc.
  9. Missouri elk?

    hello! I recently acquired this fossil jaw bone, it was stated that it was an elk fossil found in the Missouri River... I was wondering if anyone could give me an exact species? Also, the person unfortunately went sloppy wild with some 50/50 glue and it's smeared on the jaw bone and even covering some of the chewing surfaces of the teeth. Any hints on the best way to remove some of it?
  10. I bought this a few years ago at a rock and mineral event. I don’t know what it is and if it is real. It seems very legit. I’m trying to sell it soon on eBay to make some extra cash. I don’t know much about fossils and I’m hoping someone can help. Thanks
  11. Reptile jaw sections ?

    Are these reptile jaw sections they are form kem kem ?
  12. What in the world?!

    I saw this fossil online. Does anyone know what it is? It is some jaw with teeth in matrix but what is it from? It is from Oued Zem, Morocco. Thanks (This is the only picture I have)
  13. Hi Guys, I found this Mosasaur jaw on the internet, but is it real or an composite? The jaw is from the Kem Kem region.
  14. Theropod jaw section ?

    Would this be a theropod jaw section its was found at Judith river formation.
  15. I saw this at a Fossil convention in Vienna it was priced around 230 euros that's about 250$. Is it real?
  16. Have some or all of these teeth been added in?
  17. Jawbone

    Whats could this jawbone could it belong too ? its from kem kem beds.
  18. Hello, I saw this jaw on the Internet and I was wondering if it was real (because it is being sold for very cheap) To me the jaw looks ok compared to other fake jaws, but the teeth look a bit weird... These are the only two pictures I have. What do you think? Regards
  19. Sphyraenus barracuda?

    Hello. I was IDing some fish jaws and I'm stumped on this one. I'm thinking sphyraenus barracuda, since this jaw came from Florida. It's 3 inches exact, tooth sockets approx 3/8'' for the larger ones.
  20. So this jaw is being sold as a rare museum quality Hadrosaur jaw. As many of you probably already know, this is a typical fake Mosasaur jaw from Morocco. So it really has nothing to do with any Hadrosaurs. But I think it still deserves to be said that no one should buy these types of fakes jaws thinking they are real. Always be careful when buying any type of fossil, especially fossils from Morocco and China, as those are very often faked.
  21. 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.
  22. 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!
  23. 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!
  24. 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!
  25. 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.
