  1. Is this a real jaw? Any red flags?
  2. 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!
  3. Found a month ago west coast new zealand seal jaw with a beautifully preserved tooth still in it
  4. 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).
  5. A friend of mine proposed to buy this piece. What do you think? thanks to everybody
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Is this mastodon tusk and jaw?
  9. 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.
  10. 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...
  11. 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.
  12. I found these jaw pieces with tooth stubs in them ,I can't tell what they are from (I think mosasaur)
  13. I work in a small museum and occasionally have people stop by to ask what kind of fossil they've found. About half the time I know or can find out with a little research- the other half I am clueless. So, I've decided to start leaning on people who are vastly smarter than I on this topic (i.e. you people). A guy came in with these photos and said he came across this lower jaw while hiking in an area known for middle to late Eocene fossils in SW Wyoming. He estimated it was maybe 7 inches in length and was just a couple of feet above some fossil turtle scutes. I don't really know much about the area or much about vertebrate fossils. I am guessing it is some sort of Creodonta or Carnivora, but I am way out of my element (I just learned what Creodonta are). Some known Creodonta from the area (1992): Sinopa, Limnocyon, Thinocyon, Partiofelis Some known Carnivora from the area (1992): Miacis, Viverravus, Vulpavus Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  14. I found this on the beach near South Ponte Vedra, FL. I've been collecting fossils for a couple of years but have never seeing anything like it. I was not able to find anything similar via image search, probably because I could not describe it well. I would appreciate any help. It is about 3"x1.5"x1.5" and looks like a weird jaw to me.
  15. An interesting day and enjoyable also: Waist deep water, sun was shining, warm breeze. Fossil #1 Bird foot bone? 1 inch wide , slightly less than 2 inches in length: Which birds are candidates? Fossil #2 Very small Fossil #3 Osteoderm. Which animal? Any input on body position? Head, Tail. etc Fossil #4 A 2+ inch Jaw with 1 tooth All suggestions and comments Appreciated..
  16. A partial left dentary (lower jaw) of a small mosasaur. On the side there is a large pathology visible on the bone surface.
  17. So I got gobs of turtle stuff as many of us Floridians have and there were all kinds of these guys crawling and swimming around here. I was wondering if any of you have run across complete turtle/tortoise jaw/dentary's and might confirm these fragments might be. So here are 3 fragments that have interesting textures. All 3 have a gentle curve/arch/narrowing to them. 1) seems to have a porosity/pitting very similar to alligator or croc and I'm not sure if that immediately excludes it as part of a turtle jaw.
  18. Hello. Found this in the bottom of a box of rocks and shells that I bought at an estate sale in Southern Connecticut. Very curious if any of the experts on this forum know what this is. Thank you.
  19. Recently I bought this fossil. I have a rough idea what he could be. Though I'm really not sure as I have too little experience with such material. I don't want to jump to conclusions but I think it looks like a jaw. A Spinosaurus jaw perhaps? It was not me who took these photos, it was the seller who sent me these photos. So I hope that helps. Any information on this piece would be greatly appreciated.
  20. This was a recent find on private land near Lusk Wyoming. It is an area with lots of oreodonts and lots of turtles. Always anxious to find anything different. I think that is likely a long shot because there is not much to go on ..... but there is plenty of brain power on this site. What struck me the most was how thick and heavy this bone feels. THe teeth are all broken off and both ends are gone. The ventral aspect is also broken off so its full depth in that direction is not appreciated either. Thanks in advance if any one has any ideas.
  21. Hi all, I found these (modern) bones on one of the beaches of the Cape of Good Hope (South Africa). All three bones were found about 3-5 m apart, so there is a chance that they come from the same animal. We have a rib, a vertebrae, and a jaw (missing the teeth). Anyone have a clue on the ID? Thanks in advance, Max
  22. Hello, I have another one that's puzzling me. At first I thought it was a jaw with teeth, but there is no enamel present. My next option was a crab type claw, but it's much larger than the typical ones we find in Virginia. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
  23. From the album Dinosaur teeth

    Baryonyx walkeri Cretaceous (Hauteruvian-Barremian) Wealden Clay East Sussex, England Difficult to tell if this piece is from a jaw but there is definitely a Baryonyx tooth in the matrix.
  24. Hello everyone! My name is Jack, and I am hoping one of you can help me out. To be clear, I have zero experience or knowledge when it comes to fossils. I absolutely loved dinosaurs when I was a kid, which led to my parents buying me this fossil of a partial mandible and teeth. I've starred at it ever since, always wondering what it might have been. I was cleaning out old boxes and I happen to find it! Last time I laid eyes on it was in the late 90's so I never had a chance to get it looked at. If there is anyone who would be able to give me some information on it, it would be fantastic. What kind of creature, what time period and quality of the sample etc.. any help would be greatly appreciated!
  25. NE Alabama Found under some creek pebbles thanks yall
