  1. Prehistoric crocodile

    Found these partial plates in the sawmill creek I am curious to know what the long pieces in the top right corner are found them with the plates if anybody with more information could help please found in Summerville ,South Carolina sawmill creek
  2. ID - Fish Plate?

    Looking to get an ID on this little guy. I’ve found one or two before this one. Some kind of back plate perhaps?
  3. Hash plate with crinoids

    A friend of mine gave this beauty, he found it in Northern Kentucky. It's odd because Northern Kentucky isn't to far away from me, yet I never find them on the river here in Southeast Indiana.
  4. Show us your Scutes!

    Scutes are thickened bony dermal plates that can be found on turtles, crocodiles, birds, and many other animals. Because they are made of hard material, they are more likely to fossilize and remain preserved for millions of years. My personal fossil collection, which consists of an estimated 7,000-8,000 specimens, contains only a few scutes, which leads me to believe they are a rather uncommon find. Of course, this could very well only be the case with the geologic formations that I have collected from. Perhaps scutes are plentiful at other fossil sites around the world. I will include a few examples of the scutes from my collection. I encourage any members who have scutes in their collections to share pictures and details on their animal of origin, location at which they were collected, and size. Hopefully we'll all get to see some incredible specimen and collectively obtain a better understanding of scutes! Thanks in advance to all who will share! Pictured, in order: Crocodile scute, Calvert Formation, ~1 in. Ray scute, Calvert Formation, 3/4 in. Ray scute, Calvert Formation, 1/2 in. Boxfish scute, Aquia Formation, 3/4 in.
  5. I've found a blob me thinks. Came across this on the Whitewater River, Southeast Indiana. What the heck do you think is in this? I see a Leptaena.
  6. The Bugaloos

    A recent online purchase. The only thing I know is it was shipped from China. Any chance on at least some sort of ID beyond "insect"? Seller doesn't give any information on it.
  7. # plate show us yours

    Hash plates are among my favourite of fossils and they are fantastic to photograph. So please add some of your beautiful photographs of your stunning plates. Properly one of my favourite Hash Plate. I found it in a river in Wales Uk when I was 16 and camping . It reminds me of the The Nazca Lines , Nazca Desert, in southern Peru.
  8. Made it to NSR yesterday, managed a nice haul. Was a bit hazardous in the rain, but the isolation was nice. Wondering especially about the plate, but any knowledge dropped on me is always appreciated!
  9. Dunkleosteus armor/possible jaws

    From the album Sharks and fish

    Front side of armor which I believe could be the edge of the jaws! It comes to what would have been the razor sharp shearing edge, greatly worn down now, though. I also believe it could be the jaw because of the clear vertical wear lines on the surface, from being sheared against the inner surface of the other jaw, which is how they kept the edges razor sharp like scissors. I have seen similar wear lines on placoderm shearing jaws, so what I believe to be reasonable observations point to the possibility(maybe even likely?)of being from the cutting edge of the jaws.
  10. Ichthyosaur stomach contents

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Cross sections of the stomach, full of squid/cephalopod hooks and beaks, of an early Jurassic ichthyosaur (Stenopterygius quadriscissus). One slice has the animals ribs, the lighter tan objects, around the stomach, while the other is entirely of the stomach contents.
  11. Odd plate with crinoid.

    This one has a decent sized crinoid on one side of the rock, but the other has this weird plate. Is it just a different type of rock within the matrix, or part of something else? Probably Michigan/Indiana. (6/8)
  12. Triassic mystery bone

    Hi all! I've found this strange bone (unprepared yet) in triassic aged sandstone from the anisian. In the same location there have been many shark, fish, and Marine reptile species reported. I can't seem to I'd what part of the body this bone represent, not even talking about the species... The bumps on the surface are half spheres, some of them protruding half way without squere encourage, I think they can be teeth or some kind of dermal plate. So, does anybody care to share their thoughts on the matter?
  13. I was scouring over a plate I recently collected and noticed this "face-like" feature. Any ideas? Sorry couldn't get extreme close up as the iPhone camera isn't great for that.
  14. Can use some help with a few IDs

    I've been trying to ID all the little fossils on this plate besides the Mioplosus. So far I see two mollusks, a tiny clam, a possible burrow, and a shrimp. Can someone help me figure out if my observations are correct? Second picture is a close up of the shrimp.
  15. Bolaspidella housensis?

    Hello TFF. I have this little 3'' mortality plate here from wheeler shale. I think these are bollaspidella housensis but I'm not 100% sure....any help would be greatly appreciated!
  16. North Sulphur River ID

    Can anyone help me ID this find? I found it in the North Sulphur River in March of this year. I was guessing some sort of scute or plate? Maybe skin? Thanks!
  17. I helped one of my friends make a hanger for his huge Ohio hash plate. I guestimate it weights 15 pounds. I learned this technique from Harry Pristis, and only slightly modified it from what he posted. I used two steel rods from Lowes, and two turnbuckles from Home Depot. The materials cost was about $10. I used a wire bending jig to create two W-shaped "hangers" as shown. This jig was one like this; costs about $5. I bent the end of the hangers over to hook onto the plate. I used two turnbuckles to attach the rods together- and screwed them tight. I probably could have used wire, but wanted to be sure it would never fall.
  18. Found a few hash plates.

    All found in the same area in NE Oklahoma near a river. Any info would be appreciated since I don't know much about fossils. Is the brown on pic #5 something? I know the basic ones like crinoids and the obvious brachiopod or gastropod. Or any info on polishing up some of the smaller chunks? I seen a couple of posts about brass brushes. (I didn't want to create multiple posts to the ID and Preparation forums, just let me know if I should.) Sorry about the pics that are blurred. And that's not all of them. I still have these to go through...
  19. Wow! I found a...?

    A few weeks ago I was on a hunt and picked up a few nice Isaurus sp. teeth, some hemi's and seen some bone frags. I saw this sticking out of the mud at river's edge and figured it was more than just a bone but it was completely covered in mud. My eyes trained for teeth, I put it in a bag and continued on. When I got it home, I ran water over it and the small teeth started to be revealed. I couldn't believe it. I am not an expert by any means, but I assume its a fish mouth plate? From looking online, I don't see where it would be a drum. I have found individual drum and other oval fish teeth, but nothing complete like this or the round shape of these teeth. You can even see the replacement teeth in the bone in the photo where the ruler is horizontal. Two of the photos look the same, but in one, the fossil is laying on the teeth, and the other is a side view, if that helps. I spent the last few days searching online but couldn't find anything that specifically gives light to this. There is a small chip on the bottom in the center where the shade is darker, so it may be missing a small portion in that area (seen in the side view). Thank you for any information!
  20. Diodont dental plates?

    Hi, just joined the forum after browsing some very informative posts. My wife and I found the items pictured on the beach on Oahu, Hawaii. They appear to resemble others' pictures of porcupinefish dental plates. I have found info on similar finds from the Philippines, Australia, and Florida, but nothing from Hawaii. What we are mainly wondering is whether these are fossilized or just hard due to being made of tooth material (we have not found any still attached to a jawbone). Sorry about no coin in the photo for scale, the largest specimen is about 1 inch or 2.5 cm. As we say in Hawaii, Mahalo for any insights!
  21. Help with Dogfish identification

    We just got back from the Denver show, and while we were there we picked up this really nice fish fossil plate from Lebanon. What makes it special is that one of the 3 fish is supposedly a Dogfish. Unfortunately, we didn't get much other information from the dealer, so I'm hoping someone here can help us out with a few questions: 1. Any idea what species this dogfish is, and is this technically a shark or is it a relative of a shark? 2. Any idea what the age would be? Thanks! -Brian
  22. Not sure what this is, looked interesting so I picked it up today on my walk. This is the front and back... Coast nc
