  1. L.S., Since animal fossils are definitely not my strongsuit, I would like to call upon the incredible collective knowledge here at TFF and ask your help with the identification of the fish remains shown below. This specimen comes from the Westphalian D (Pennsylvanian, Carboniferous) of the Piesberg quarry near Wallenhorst, Germany. The shape of the scales reminds me of images of rhizodont (?) fish scales, but this could very well be a superficial resemblance only... Penny for your thoughts? Kind regards, Tim
  2. Possible theropod jaw fragment?

    Hi is this a Theropod jaw fragment from the belly river group Canada?

  8. Woolly Rhinocéros teeth or...?

    hello folks, I recently acquired a series of 3 teeth identified by the dealer as belonging to Coelondonta antiquitatis (woolly rhino) from 'Russia' (whatever that means). The teeth are certainly from the rhino family (that's as close as I can personally get), but these particular teeth are huge, t least twice the size of any other woolly rhino (or Teleoceras sp. ) teeth that I have (sample size about 20), or any scaled photos of woolly rhino teeth and jaws with teeth that I've found online (note: lots of photos available online, few with scale, alas). I've include two photos below showing the teeth, and a tape measure for scale. Two additional photos follow that include a woolly rhino jaw with teeth and a separate tooth for comparison to these three It got me wondering if these aren't from a woolly rhino but another member of the family?. In scanning the Asiatic rhino family tree, Elasmotherium sp. (Pleistocene) and Paraceratherium sp. (Oligocene) are the only two that exhibit a notable size difference from ol' Woolly. Unfortunately, there are maddeningly few images of teeth or jaws from these two animals, and nothing with scale that I can find. Thoughts? Any references to recommend? thanks in advance!
  9. Hello everybody So this fossil here bothers me for some time now because I'm still not sure what to make of it. I'm especially asking for the roots in the jaw and if they are a composite. Also this one tooth growing out of the root of the root looks odd to me. Is this a genuine fossil or are these roots / tooth put in the jaw? I'm used to these fake teeth put on jaws as a composite form Morocco but with this one I'm still not sure what am I looking at. On one side you can actually see the root in the jaw. Would something like this be fabricated as well? And is the ID correct? It's described as a partial maxillary of an Elosuchus sp. from the Ifezouane Formation, KemKem from Taouz/Morocco. No word about any restoration/fabrication or what so ever. Size is 3.48 in (8,84 cm).
  10. Pliosaur jaw

    A rare pliosaur jaw with part of tooth unfortunately it's weathered tooth and it's measures about 4 inches and incomplete its could be larger what's a monster it would be. Its from Jurassic, Kimmeridge Clay. Dredged from the Smallmouth Sands off Weymouth Harbour, Dorset
  11. My wife found this piece of jaw bone on the beach while on vacation last month at Topsail Island, NC. At first I thought it belonged to a shark, but upon closer examination, the tooth doesn't resemble any of the hundreds of shark teeth I have found in the past. Any help identifying this fossil would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  12. This is a find from Big Brook, NJ. Its about 15mm long and 10mm wide at the end. Could it be a salmonoid Jaw fragment? Like these http://www.njfossils.net/salmon.html
  13.  Saurorhynchus jaw

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 6 cm long Saurorhynchus jaw from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale).
  14. Morocco crocodile????

    This is a “pterosaurs” jaw I got as a gift a little bit ago. It was sold as a pterosaurs jaw with composite teeth the species is Siroccopteryx But Am almost 100% sure that it is wrongly identified it looks like a crocodile jaw maybe. So if someone can help me identify the jaw that would be amazing. It was found in the kem kem beds and is 2.3 inches long

  16. Mosasaurus or Croc

    Found this yesterday while hunting with the family, in Big Brook. Can't tell if it's Croc, Mosasaurus, or something else. I forgot to include a ruler in the pictures, but the fragment is about 5 inches in length. Any help on how to safely remove the green sand stuck to it would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Look like today was going to be one of the last mild temperature days with highs only in the low 90's, before things began to heat up again here in Northeast Texas, North Sulphur River area. Went out to an area I have visited in the past but found a creek that was new to me. I was surprised to find some rather impressive fossils right out in the open. One nice mosasaur vertebrae, fish vertebrae, jaw bone, large bone pieces that may be remains of larger worn vertebrae, and a couple of artifacts.
  18. Isle of Wight jaw?

    My nephew spotted this down at Compton bay on the Isle of Wight. Sorry about the poor photos. The area is early Cretaceous wealden. The fossil is about 1.5-2cm long. Not sure what it could be but hoping it could be some sort of jaw. If anyone has any suggestions it would be most appreciated. Many thanks.
  19. Short face bear v cave bear

    Hello everyone, I’ve recently purchased what’s said to be a 13 inch cave bear jaw. I’ve been doing research and I’m finding it difficult to tell the difference between a cave bear and a short face bear jaw. Does anyone have any insight, could this jaw be easily misidentified? kind regards Dylan
  20. Myrtle Beach Fossil

    Found this odd fossil washed up in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Eastern shore of U.S.A. It is just over 2 cm. I've found many fossils along the shore here but this one is new to me. Can anyone tell me what it is?
  21. Mosasaur jaw in matrix

    Hello, so I was thinking about buying this piece but i would love it if I could remove the matrix from it to make it look better. Is this possible? Thanks-
  22. Small jaw segment with teeth

    Found this small piece of jaw with teeth on the bank of a retention pond in Charlotte county florida. Any ideas?
  23. Partial jaw bone and teeth

    These big teeth are always a mystery to me. I don’t know how to tell the difference between bison camel and horse. Thanks for looking
  24. NSR: Jaw bone

    Hey all! I found this jaw segment near Ladonia, TX in North Sulfur River. The part throwing me off from identification is the shape of the bone beneath the teeth. It flattens out (which can be seen in the side view)
  25. possible coracoid

    I had this piece mixed with a few Sulfur river odds and ends. I was looking at it closely and thought it had a similar texture to the jaw piece wonder if this is possibly a mosasaur coracoid that fits just behind a jaw - not that this piece has anything to do with the jaw pictured 4x2 cm I took pictures from many angles and included the jaw for comparison
