  1. Heavy fossilized mammal bone ID help

    Nebraska, Miocene. Very heavy hard as stone.
  2. Spinosaurus bones?

    Can anyone identify these as spinosaurus bones. Ive come across these pictures with very little information, other than apparently spinosaur bones from Morocco. I think the verts look clearly spinosaur, but I'm not very familiar with spinosaur long bones, although they immediately struck me as looking a little off. Maybe them being flattened is throwing me off. This seemed like a perfect opportunity for not just help learning spino long bones, but also while dealing with details like that, which can interfere with "standard" identification. In the 4th picture, the fossil on the bottom right--is that a vert with a long bone next to it? It's positioned like the sail of the vert, and seems to be attached to the vert but something about the bone looks wrong for part of the sail, to me...maybe that it looks like it's rounded along the length's edge, which I thought was not how they were shaped(if I'm wrong, I could also be just picturing dimetrodon sail spines...well, or just plain wrong, of course)? ...As well as looking just like the other long bones present. Thanks for any and all help!
  3. A big crab leg and???

    I'm sure that the one long fossil is part of a crab leg but I can't seem to find anything on the web like it, all of the crab fossils I find appear to be your typical size crab such as the blue crab. This look like it would come from a very large crab. Came across what looked like other leg parts that appeared to be at least 6-8 inches. That second smaller piece, I don't have a clue. There's not much there to go on, just hoping that maybe someone will recognize the pattern on it and know what it belongs to. These were dug out of sandstone in which the bivalves and gastropods have been dated to about 2.5 million years old.
  4. Can anyone indentify the species of hadrosaur or ceratopsian left this leg bone in dinosaur provincial park Alberta Canada?
  5. Bone or Antler?

    Hello, I was just traveling for a while and I was in the Rocha Department of Uruguay an area north east of Montevideo on the coast. I was walking along the severe hightide line of the shore just in front of a formation of a large sand dune area. I came across this what I think to be bone but potentially an antler. Uruguay was home to many Miocene Mammals and other fauna. Any ideas what this may be from from? Hard and heavy stone sounding when tapped. Marrow fossilized within perhaps. Any help is much appreciated! Patrick
  6. Christmas presents

    I thought I would share a couple of my Christmas presents. A beautiful Pulalius vulgaris crab prepared by our own @RJB When he calls his B crabs or everybody else's A crabs. A deer (Odocoileus virginianus) Leg mount from Florida. Pleistocene. All of the bones were found together and are associated. A Megaloceros Giganteus jaw section with two teeth.
  7. TN gal needing ID of fossil find?

    I found some interesting bones/rock/fossils?? Needing help to determine if they are really fossils. Found in North Central Arkansas on an exposed / eroding hill side leading to a river. I dug many of these out of red sticky clay. I really appreciate any help I can get, I’ve had these for 2 years and it’s finally time to see if I unearthed a remarkable find. Fingers crossed
  8. Found in South Manatee County in an aggregate pit. Thank you!
  9. Hello, I was browsing through our favorite auction site and stumbled on a psittacosaurus leg. The seller seems very reliable but I just wanted to make sure. Found in China Cretaceous Approx. 6 in.
  10. Femur?

    Hi Fossil Forum - I found this object which I think is a bone near the State Line campground in the Vermillion Cliffs area of Arizona/Utah. It measures approximately 3" in radius. Is it a bone?
  11. Equus Metatarsal?

    I believe this to be a horse metatarsal, most likely Equus. But am wondering since it was found in mixed Pleistocene / Pliocene sediments if it could be a Pliocene species. That is saying it is horse of course, you know Mr. Edd. It was found in a quarry in eastern NC that contains Pliocene Yorktown formation and a Pleistocene pebble lag. It was protruding from a sloped area that extended down into a shallow pit. The sediments pushed down were mixed Yorktown and the pebble lag. Mammal fossils are uncommon in North Carolina and they are usually teeth. Bones, especially complete are almost unheard of.

  21. Madagascar Dino Leg

    Hello! I recently purchased this piece in Madagascar. I was told that it is a dinosaur bone and was found in Majunga. I would love help in learning more about it. You can see that it is two main parts (which fit together) and there is some evidence of repair work. There are some crystals in the middle of the bone, which I think looks very pretty.
