  1. I have this specimen. Listed this in the Fabrication section. I was told that these are platecarpus vertebrae from the Niobrara Chalk, in Kansas. are these mosasaur? thank you!
  2. Hi there, I purchased these from a dealer and was working if this is genuine. If anyone can help me, it would be much appreciated :D. The dealer said that it is an articulate set of Platecarpus vertebra from the Niobrara Chalk, in Kansas. I will attach more photos below Thank you!
  3. Found this tooth in Ramanessin in Holmdel, NJ. It is about 1.4" long, and it is missing about 1/4 of the top. There are striations along the entire length on all sides, and the top of the tooth has a very faint slightly raised line, but not to the extent of the Mosasaur teeth that I've found previously, so I'm leaning towards it being a Crocodile tooth, or possibly some other species. I figured I would ask for some opinions, since I am far from an expert. Thanks in advance for any input.
  4. I forgot to post my last North Sulphur River Texas hunt. I found a nice variety of items. The cretaceous fish piece was definitely my find of the day. I had a crop duster buzz me for at least an hour. I found some nice coprolite specimens and a cool reworked artifact.
  5. I haven't been in a position to buy many fossils lately, but I did splash out on this small Halisaurus skull, which I felt was quite unusual. I'm not entirely sure how much of it is present. It looks like most of the front 2/3rds of the skull are mostly present. The visible jaw fragments on the right are confusing, since the teeth are pointing the wrong way. So presumably that got turned around somehow. It's a bit mixed up - also, it 'sinks' in the middle, as if it's been impacted against something (or bitten, but that might be a bit fanciful). There are probably some bones below the visible ones (perhaps a bit of the other jaw) but I'm not holding out hope for much. I like it, though. View from the snout. The visible jaw fragments on the left jaw (the mosasaur's left). With sausage fingers for scale.
  6. Hi everyone Last Thursday I went to visit the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels as a little pre-birthday trip. I have visited this museum several times in the past few years, but this time I took my camera with me and thought it might be fun to do a photo tour of the museum for this forum Beware, this will be quite a big topic that might take a few days to complete as I took nearly 750 photo's in the museum (a lot will have to be sorted out though due to blurry quality, photo's of only name tags and doubles) as I wanted to show pretty much all fossil displays Especially the Hall of the Dinosaurs, the hall of the Mosasaurs & The Hall of Evolution will be quite complete tours Starting off with some snapshots of the hall of the minerals. The meteorite display room
  7. Hi all, I’m new here, hello. Whilst I’ve purchased the odd small fossil and gemstone etc I’m very much a novice so bear with me. I’ve come across this Mosasaur Jaw. I know these are widely faked so I’m already sceptical but wanted your expert opinions too. The seller says it is genuine and not composite. Pictures attached. My thoughts here, it’s all I’ve got! - It’s big, much bigger than most fakes that that are much smaller (read easier to distribute/post). - partially exploded, and a random shark tooth in the matrix too. - Some small, baby? Teeth seem to show under the main teeth but I’ve no idea if these are to be expected. look forward to your comments!
  8. Fun North Sulphur River Texas hunt today. The Plesisoar podial is huge. The mosasuar jaw section has teeth hidden under the red matrix. The big mosasaur cervical vert is in great shape.
  9. Mosasaur Tooth from Ramanessin

    From the album Cretaceous

    Mosasaur Tooth Upper Cretaceous Wenonah Formation Mattawan Group Ramanessin Brook Holmdel, N.J.
  10. New Jersey Cretaceous bone

    Hello! I recently found this in a Cretacous steam in Monmouth County NJ. I've found a good amount of Mosasaur bones in this area so I was wondering if this can possibly be identified or if it gets the dreaded 'chunkosaurus' label. Thanks everyone! Note: I'm not sold that its Mosasaur, but for some reason, in this area, I do find a lot of Mosasaur bones.
  11. Mosasaur?

    Hi. This is kind of on the small side. I know it is something. Mosasaur? Thanks for any feedback. Mark
  12. Greetings kind people, I am a complete novice in the field of fossil collecting. Kindly bear with me. My objective for collecting fossils: I want to learn paleontology work. I want to observe the fossils under a microscope, understand their body structure, their food habits.... Basically get a *whole story of the fossil* which I own, something that paleontologists do (I also want to explore all the methods that paleontologists use to study fossil and recreate them at home). So any fossil that will enable me to learn more about itself, I'd surely buy that. And also fossils which are more closer to actuality, rather than rare or good looking fossils. So any fossil that reveals more information is favoured over rare or good-looking fossils So here are my questions: 1) I'm trying to buy a spinosaur tooth. The seller is selling one spinosaur tooth which is red in colour for a higher price compared to a spinosaur tooth which looks almost like a rock. So is the red colour tooth more authentic or more valuable etc? Or is it just the same? My objective is to study those fossils under microscope. So if the red spinosaur tooth will provide more information, I'd buy that. 2) I see some dinosaur tooth still having some enamel. How is this possible? I mean shouldn't enamel be replaced by minerals too? Or is the enamel the only thing that is intact? If it is intact does it mean I'm holding a tooth which might have bit another dinosaur moments before it died and I can see the traces of that activity when I observe under the microscope? 3) I've seen polished ammonites which were split open. They carried a lot of information within, compared to unpolished ammonite. Which among those two types would reveal more information about the ammonite itself? Or which one should I go for, in general? 4)I am also planning to buy amber fossils. Some pointers and what to look for and what to keep away from would be appreciated. 5) Lastly, trilobites. How are trilobite fossils so well preserved? I've seen reedops protruding out of the rock like it's actually alive. But I read something about cast fossils and enhancements. So if I buy a reedops trilobite, does it mean it's been remade using plaster etc, or is it just as it is? Please bear in mind that I want to own fossils which closely resembles actuality Thank you so much for bearing with my silly doubts .I just want to educate myself and be an amateur paleontologist, studying fossils from home. Have a lovely day! P.s- I can upload some pictures and website links if need be.
  13. Hey Everyone. I'm headed over to the Tuscaloosa area specifically to hunt some of the chalk banks along the Tombigbee. Instead of going on a wild goose chase, I was wondering if anyone knew of some spots around there where they had luck with shark and mosasaur teeth. Preferably, I am looking for spots that are not considered private property or hunting grounds. Thanks for the input!
  14. Hi All, I've purchased these two items and am wondering about authenticity. Can anyone provide any thoughts?
  15. Croc or Mosasaur from Kansas

    I found this tooth in the Lincoln limestone of central Kansas. Lincoln limestone is Cenomanian, which is too early for mosasaurs I believe. I dont know of any croc material from this formation though, so I'm not sure what I've got.
  16. There have been a few minor rain storms moving through the north Texas area lately, seems like it is always Friday afternoon or night. I have tried to go out and hunt a few days following these events, not expecting much, but you never know. Yesterday I hit one of my favorite creeks on the North Sulphur River and hit a jackpot for vertebrae and miscellaneous bone fossils, even found an artifact or two. There were a total of 16 verts, a rib bone, fish stuff and odd pieces that who knows what? The last artifact broke my heart, you find many like this, can just imagine what the entire point would have looked like. A few pics attached. Thanks
