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!
Hi all, I'm a bit stumped by this one. I've never found anything like it, though it does resemble a sort of tooth. Anyone care to take a shot? Both ends are similarly open, and the core seems to be made of mineralized material. Thanks!
Kyle Gerson posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this awesome tooth today by accident in about 4-5 feet of water at Betterton Beach on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. It is about 2 1/8" long and very thin, like a needle tooth. On the bottom of the tooth, near its pointed end, there is some serration, and the point itself seems to have a small plate or point extending at the bottom of it. This is my first tooth I have ever found on a beach, and despite my research and fair knowledge of shark teeth, the question of whether this tooth is a fossil and what it belongs to has stumped me. Perhaps one of you could help me out? PS: This is my first post on Fossil Forum, and I'd like to say hi to you guys, and I'm hoping you have an idea on what this is! PPS: Is this tooth AWESOME, or what?
I found this rock when fossil hunting up in Binghamton, NY. Looks kinda like a small finger or wienie in the rock. (not saying it is. just looks like it) It has a smooth, rounded surface. It's approx. 4.5 cm long It raises up approx. 5 mm above the rock at the tip It is approx. 1 cm wide at the center The groove in the rock that continues beyond the tip is approx. 2 cm long. I am very curious as to what it may be. Please let me know if you know. Thanks. See pics below. -DG p.s. Please let me know if there is any other info you might need.
