  1. Prognathodon Tooth from Morocco

    From the album My Fossils

    I found this tooth from Morocco I’m a shop in Portugal. While the root could be faked in someway. The actual tooth, is real. I did a post on this before but I took much clearer images for the ID for this later on. I decided to repost with these images.
  2. small dromaeosaurid,oldie but goodie

    xinxuxiaolsmallestdinosazhaoianusmicrorapnaturezhonghetopost200010b4c14c3.pdf the other paper on this species(Hwang/Norell) is ,naturally,in Fruitbat's Library,possibly in some others as well salient points(or:"things you might want to remember about this article")(apart from osteological details): edit,hours later:possible repost,because I just noticed this one in Fruitbat's Library. Joe,i feel i owe you an apology. note Maniraptora (GAUTHIER): I posted the Gauthier,a very influential cladistic paper,a while back Note 2: "Archaeoraptor" turned out to be forged
  3. I was in a local Barnes & Noble last week and was happily shocked to see that a second edition of "Oceans of Kansas" had been released (came out in September). The first one (Everhart, 2006) was a great surprise in its own right. If it had been just a faunal review of the various layers of the Niobrara Chalk, it would have been interesting enough but it covered even more oceans than that. A seaway covered much of Kansas over much of the Cretaceous but it wasn't the same cast of characters from beginning to end. Various organisms evolved, co-existed, and disappeared across that time and the book is an excellent guide to the fossils found and studied up to the mid-2000's. The second edition looks to be a must-have as well. http://www.iupress.indiana.edu/product_info.php?products_id=808653 It's the only thing on my list to Santa. Jess
  4. Montego Bay

    Although fossil finding was not part of our vacation itinerary, fossils found us. After our boat docked outside of the strip just outside the town of Montego Bay, there was a large shelf of limestone filled with coral fossils. I had just been snorkelling in the living coral reef at Secrets Bay, and it was fabulous to see corals in living colour with all those abundant tropical fish eddying about. The limestone here dates between the Mesozoic and Cenozoic, and is largely dominated by coral. Some of the specimens in the rock have very nicely defined corallites. As I didn't think to bring a rock hammer on vacation, I did manage to find a loose rock to hack out a few small specimens. This first batch shows these corals in their raw, in situ context:
  5. Please help with ID of sponges, corals and bryozoans

    Dear Guys, I collected some interesting specimens in Jurassic- Early Cenozoic erratics like sponges, bryozoans and hexacorals and also two primitive Ordovician sponges. The sponge pieces are 3-8 mm length (In yellowish limestone on sponge has very interesting skeleton growth outside). The size of coral in greenish gray limestone is 9 mm diameter, in the white limestone- 7 mm diameter. The bryozoans are from 7 mm to 1 cm length, they web shaped. Please help with ID of these fossils if you could. Best Regards Domas 1. Late Jurassic sponges in my opinion. 2. Early Cretaceous (?) sponges. 3. Late Cretaceous- Paleocene sponges I think.
  6. Straight Outta Mesozoic

    As a graphic design artist I sometimes like to create some paleo-art and pop-art mash-ups. Please feel free to comment.
  7. Seed, cranial base, vertebra

    Hi, my name is Sérgio Jorge and I live in Goiania - Brazil. during a fishery I found in a pile of gravels which in my view is a vertebra( Cranial base?) and a fossilized seed. If anyone has an idea whatsoever, I would really be grateful! these are the coordinates of where I found the fossils! 18 ° 21'03.1 "S + 52 ° 01'36.4" W
  8. Cephalopod Help

    I have an ammonite(?) that I received circa 1990 from a missionary who said that it was "brought down from the mountains by monks" in Papua New Guinea. Apparently, there is relatively little known about the palaeontology of the area. There are similar ammonites showing up in native tribal art pendants (see article in "Deposits Magazine" HERE The article indicates that it is not known whether these ammonites that are showing up are recently imported or of local origin. I suppose mine could have been imported, but given the date of acquisition and what I was told, I am inclined to think it was collected in situ in Papua New Guinea, but I can't be certain. The geologic map I found did not distinguish between periods in the Mesozoic, so I don't know if it is Cretaceous or Jurassic, etc. I did find 2 papers (Both available as .pdf online): Tatsuro, M & S.K. Skwarko. 1991. Ammonites of the Cretaceous Ieru Formation, western Papua New Guinea. J. Australian Geology & Geophysics 12(3): 245-262 Tatsuro, M & S.K. Skwarko. 1993. Cretaceous ammonites from south-central Papua New Guinea. J. Australian Geology & Geophysics 14(4): 411 - 433. The closest resemblance of the taxa in those papers was Subthurmannia (Fauriella) boissieri. In doing my own searching, I thought Macrocephalites bifurcatus (middle Jurassic) looked like a good match and has been collected in Papua (see link to museum specimen HERE). The preservation of that specimen appears to match mine, too. Here are some pics of my specimen. Any help from the ammonite enthusiasts would be greatly appreciated! @Ludwigia

  10. bone or sponge

    Silicified specimen from Jurassic/Cretaceous/Paleogene marine sediments of Małopolska region, Poland. From secondary deposit, so precise age and locality unknown. Similar to a humerus, e.g. of a turtle. Or is just a sponge?
  11. My most recent and most exciting acquisition, a giant partial vert from a tyrannosaurus rex from the hell creek formation of Montana. Nearly went into cardiac arrest that I was able obtain such a large specimen from t rex, so I thought I would share. It really fills up the dinosaur collection and feels like it weighs a ton, I think the dimensions are somewhere around 6.5 inchs or so long and 10.5 inchs tall if I remember, would've been alot taller if the process was still intact and I like how the giant pores are visible cause of the damage. Super massive piece, I was worried about it collapsing my shelve but it fits fine so far.
  12. help me identify this fossil?

    Hi all, I recently found this on a trip to the Jurassic Coast at Dorset and have been intrigued by this find, i'm not an expert on fossil identification and i would be grateful for all your potential ideas as to what this could be.
  13. Small Moroccan theropod tooth

    From the album WhodamanHD's Fossil collection.

    Small Moroccan theropod tooth from morrocco purchased online. Labeled dromeosaur.

  16. Cretaceous bones

    Hi! I found some pieces of mesozoic bones. I know that it is just pieces, but may be it is possible to ID some of it. I found it near Ili river in Kazakhstan. It belongs to cretaceous period for sure. Tyrannosauridae, Ankylosauridae, Titanosauridae, Triceratops Marsh and some other types were found here earlier. I use sm. scale. One more
  17. Canada Ontario public collecting sites?

    hello all, just wondering if you know any LEGAL PUBLIC fossil sites open to the public in Canada, Ontario?
  18. no,not Denise

  19. some pretty ugly fish

    eichsceripros Only for those with ichthylogical leanings.and/or those interested in mesozoic carbonates with a fine granulometry
  20. My Cousin's Fossil

    While visiting family, my cousin showed me a fossil he collected at the coast when he was a child, cracking rocks to see what he could find. They spent a lot of time on the Jurassic coast, but also went to places like Hunstanton, which have Cretaceous layers. I'm really not sure what this is, but it's something in a flint nodule. Could it be a bryozoan?
