  1. Made it out to the North Sulphur River yesterday and found a couple of interesting pieces of bone. One was a small jawbone that may be mosasaur but may be small enough to be from some type of fish, not sure. The other piece was one of the largest that I have found but is an odd shape and I am not sure if it may be from a mosasaur, most of the material from this area falls into that group? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

  6. Jawbone

    Hello, I have had this fossil for a few years, but I do not know what it is from. I picked it up on a beach in South Africa on the west coast, the beach is a few kilometres from a fossil park that has many similar fossils. I currently do not have the fossil so if no one can identify it due to the quality of the picture I will try again once I have the fossil. It is about 10-12 cm long.
  7. Very Small Jawbones w/ Teeth(?)

    I found these mystery jawbone fragments in Post Oak Creek near Sherman, Texas. I was wondering if I anyone could help me identify them. If closer shots of the teeth would help, or you need another angle don't hesitate to ask! edit: longer fragment is about 8mm long I'm used to only finding unidentifiable bone fragments out there so these were a neat little surprise! (in fact i only picked up one knowingly, the other I must have thought was a tooth when I picked it up. I only noticed it after coming home to rinse stuff off haha)
  8. Mosasaur jaw section

    Hi yall, just posting to get to where I can create a photo album. This is a section of mosasaur jawbone from the north sulfur river in ladonia, tx. It has one tooth. Species unknown.
  9. A Peace River bone

    I have not been out too much this season, but the Peace River is certainly open for hunting. I went to a location that I had hunted many times, thinking I could recheck old sites for new fossils. I am currently water depth challenged, and the river was at least a foot deeper than I had remembered for this location. The day was mostly non productive with a minimal number of small shark teeth, a single armadillo scute, and then this bone. I came very close to tossing it back in but thought that ridge/groove down the side could be a marker for one of my favorite fossils. I always am on the lookout for that groove. I also might be imagining what I wish it to be, I have done that before. Although I encourage and appreciate all comments, Let's also see what Bobby thinks... @Boesse
  10. Jawbone

    From the album Post oak finds

  11. Hi everyone! I know mosasaur teeth are fairly common and you can pick them up really cheap, this means they're not usually faked. I was wondering what makes the price of a jaw vary so much? I won this as an auction so the price doesn't necessarily represent quality but I was fairly sure it's real. Certainly the teeth seem to be. However, I've heard the jaws themselves can be made and the teeth then set in to it. As there's not a lot of detail to go on, is there any way of authenticating them? I'm really happy with what I've got regardless. Aesthetically it's a nice jaw. I can't find any for sale that are identical at least! Any tips appreciated! Thanks.
  12. Hi everyone, I just returned from a summer in northern New Jersey and had the chance to fossil hunt at the Ramanessin Brook site near Holmdel, New Jersey. We went on 7/28 after a series of heavy rainstorms, so we knew we would have an easy time at finding recently exposed material. We found the usual cretaceous shark teeth fossils, and then perching on the river rocks was this beautiful lower jawbone. I have included a photo of how it was found and the general site area. The jawbone itself does not appear fossilized with minerals and looks quite porous, while I am assuming the dentine in the teeth was well fossilized and has unique hues of blue, red, and brown that are difficult to capture in the photo. The size and specialization of the teeth remind me of a more modern mammal like a raccoon, but I am from Texas and unfamiliar with what is possible to find at this usually marine cretaceous locality. Is it possible that a more recent mammal's jawbone had fossilized and become uncovered in the same area? I am excited to see what you experts are thinking, and thank you in advance! I would be happy to take more photos if needed.
  13. Any idea who this partial jaw bone belongs to?
  14. Jaw bones with teeth.

    When i was in Quartzite I searched high and low for any real stuff from Morocco. This is the only real jaw i found and the guy didnt have a clue to what it was. Im guessing some kind of crock? Does anyone maybe know what this is? RB
  15. Hey Everyone, I was researching about Sharks and I had a quick question, and hopefully you can answer them. I found a few of images of Shark Jaw Bones on the internet that are in the form of Drawings and Tattoos, but I was not able to identify what type of Shark the Jaw Bones came from. I was hoping you can help me on it. I have attached a few links below to the images. Link 1: https://thumb9.shutterstock.com/display_pic_with_logo/1768667/304081742/stock-vector-great-white-shark-jaws-304081742.jpg Link 2: http://nextluxury.com/wp-content/uploads/male-shark-jaw-tattoo-with-detailed-design-on-inner-forearms.jpg Link 3: http://static.tattoodo.com/visitors/248651/portfolio/thumbs/30655-340454-alpha.jpg Link 4: http://delinear.info/images/th3n04h/hd/depositphotos_7307828-Shark-Jaw.png If you can also prove how you came to that conclusion with solid evidence, that would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  16. Found this specimen in Post Oak Creek in North Texas. For those unfamiliar it cuts through Cretaceous era deposits. Appears to me to be a very worn jawbone fragment. Strange to me though how the "teeth" appear to be clustered as opposed to having a linear orientation. Mosasaur and Plesiosaur teeth and jawbones have been found in this area, but not sure if this looks like either. Any suggestions?
  17. Found on a beach in Maui

    Roughly 3 inches long and 1 in wide. Back is white and recessed.
  18. Part of Jawbone?

    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.
  19. Small piece of jawbone

    Found this in my collection and I don't recall where I found it however it is definitely fossilized and almost all of my collection is aquatic or glacial leftovers. Any help would be appreciated.
  20. Possible fossil

    I found this while walking on the beach. The city was dredging the inlet. It has been in the water awhile I believe but it still smells. It smells a bit like sulfur or swamp. Wondering if anyone could help with identification. Thanks
  21. Can anyone identify this fossil

    This is a recent find. Judging from other pieces identified this looks to me to be a partial lower jawbone with teeth of a horse ancestor. Its hard to see the pattern on the teeth and they are very worn and fairly dirty. I've been a little afraid to clean these pieces as I don't want to damage them. I have just read up on cleaning methods so I will try them out on a lesser piece. This find came from the same dredge location near Houston Texas. I'm hoping that someone can confirm this is a horse fossil. Thanks again to all of you.
  22. Possibly 2 partial Jawbones With Teeth

    I have 2 more finds that look similar to a partial jaw with teeth I found previously but both are larger pieces. These two look like tapir teeth of a previous piece and I would like to confirm they are from a tapir. They were found in the same area near Houston Texas. Thanks you all for your help.
  23. Partial Jaw Bone With 2 Rows Of Teeth

    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.
  24. Partial Jaw With 2 Teeth

    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.
  25. Partial Jaw Bone With Teeth

    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.
