  1. Plesiosaur upgraded

    Same Story again, looking whart i can make of a bought model that has been around for some time. Another marine tetrapod. To be perfectly clear, This is a commercially bought Model which I changed to my ideas.Like my marine sloth and most of my dino- and other saurian ,models, but not my whales. I ordered the model from geoworld because some of the line had been quite nice. When I first saw it I didn´t think I could make something for my collection out of it. Trying it anyway. Scaled size and approximate proportions of Futabasaurus, not reallyenough detail to tell. Aloha J
  2. Plesiosaur Blues

    This is the result of two trips after some major rains. This was something I hoped to find, but have failed so far. I found a piece of jaw, so the thought of digging it is gone, but would still love to collect the rest. They are beautiful. On the first trip, I stumbled upon the first vert sitting high atop a shale pile calling my name. I admired it for a while and moved along happy with the find. On my way out, I caught a glimpse of another under water and that got me excited! I have spent a few trips just to look for it, but nothing until this past weekend. A couple more verts showed up. I know it can’t be far, but I think it stays under mounds of shale all the time.
  3. Plesiosaur tooth ID

    Hello all, Here is my 4,5cm Plesiosaur tooth that I got for quite cheap from a private seller. I have absolutely no information on this tooth and I would like to know, if possible the specie. I was thinking of Elasmosaurus? I think it probably has been stuck on the matrix. Any idea about the location? Thank you so much.Regards. (If you need more pictures, tell me)
  4. I picked up this tooth a few days. It was in a bin with plesiosaur teeth. But this one was much different. It's 2" long. One carinae, that is not serrated, likely on the mesial side. The other side is rounded. Faint striations that run up the tooth from the base, but slowly fade away towards the crown. I'm not an expert on mosasaurs, looking for help on ID.
  5. Kem Kem vertebra

    Hello forum, I came across this at a rock/fossil shop while on a recent road trip. It was labeled as Carcharodontosaurus vertebra from Kem Kem. The shop owner said probably mid-back vertebra. The piece is approximately 12 inches wide and 12 inches across. Any help identifying is greatly appreciated.

    An interesting early plesiosaur. http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-42339936
  8. Enchodus or Plesiosaur?

    Enchodus or Plesiosaur? South Sulphur River Texas Cretaceous find. I think Enchodus but I'm not really sure how to tell the difference? It does seem a little different from my other dozen or so Enchodus.
  9. unknown vert

    Can anyone help me id this vert. It came with a batch of Ichthyosaur bones I bought from Dorset, but it not like Ichthyosaur verts I usually get.
  10. I used to be a member her many years ago when young Knackers McGee started the site showing off his wonderful finds, time marches on, now i have somethig to contribute of note. I aquired a collection of Gem grade Opalised Plesiosaur bones, mainly half verterbrae, whatsit called, split vertically. Included, was one unknown perfect split shown below. If anyone is interested in such things, I can post more pics and links to videos for your amusement. This image is of the best split, most likely broken in the field by the pick. The central inclusions are very shallow. I could not believe my luck as the person who sold then to me did not recognise the bones in the parcel. Sadly I did not buy all of it, so there is or are people out there with half a dozen matchng halves to what I have. Some of the pieces have great detail of bone structure on the outside, some look to have internal passages preserved in great detail. Veins or ateries not opalised within the Opal. All very rare to find as ordinary fossilised bone, opalised is very very rare.
  11. New tooth, don't think it's mosy.

    Found this tooth today at Post Oak Creek. Don't think it is mosasaur. Doesn't look right. Thinking it could be plesiosaur or croc? I have one worn plesiosaur I found a couple of years ago. Thoughts?
  12. Bone or Rock? Marine Jurassic sediments

    Hello please can I have people's opinions of if this is a bone or a rock. It was found on the Jurassic coast in the UK
  13. Jurassic coast bone??

    Hi I found this on the beach in Dorset UK. The sediments are maritime Jurassic. I think it is a bone but I've no idea what from or even if it is a bone at all. It has the surface texture of bone and is hollow through as you can see. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jo
  14. New Jersey Vertebra

    Hey everyone, I found this vert today at ramanessin brook. This site has mostly cretaceous marine fossils but sometimes dinosaur material is found. This vert is very heavy and solid. I'm thinking it's plesiosaur but I'm not 100 percent sure. There is one large hole on the bottom of the vert. One cool thing about this specimen is that there is a bite mark that can be seen in the last picture. I'd love to hear what you all think this is. Thanks!

  16. Plesi vert prep

    Well I finally managed to prep my Plesi vert from Golden cap, Charmouth. The started so easy the matrix falling off them then I hit the pyrite, what a pest they turned out to be. Ended up pinging them a few times with the pen but happy with them.

  18. Mary Anning's plesiosaur

    From the album Fossil Diagrams

  19. Dear members of the fossil forum. Some time ago I bought several vertebrae from the Turonian layers of Goulmima, Morocco. 5 marine vertebrates have been found at that site until now. These are Tethysaurus (mosasaur), Thililua (polycotylid), Manemergus (polycotylid), Libonectes (plesiosaur) and Brachauchenius (pliosaur). I want to know if I have a fossil of each of these 4 groups from Goulmima. Therefore I need to know how the vertebrae look of each group. I know the difference between mosasaur vertebrae and the other 3 groups, but which differences exist between the other three? Thanks in advance, Sander
  20. My work as a paleoartist

    I would like to introduce myself and my work. I grew up on a small farm in southwestern Ohio loaded with great locations for the collection of ordovician fossils. I earned my BA in geology and taught fro approximately 30 years. I retired from education in 2015 and have been working as a sculptor since. I do some animal and wildlife work, some fantasy sculptures and some paleontology themed pieces. I aways try to have my pieces looking and behaving in a lifelike and believable fashion as well as being technically accurate. My sculptures are created in clay, I then make rubber molds, cast a wax in the mold and then have the wax cast in bronze in a foundry. Sculpting in bronze is more expensive than resin but the material is strong and incredibly durable. I am currently working on another sculpture of a heteromorphic ammonite that I also need help with. Let me first attach sample of my sculptures to show you my work. Thank you.
  21. Dear members of the fossil forum, I have bought this vertebra with limited information, and I was hoping that someone here might know more about this vertebra, as in what genus and species it is, and perhaps a better defined findspot. It is said to have come from the Austin Chalk Formation, Santonian, Texas. the seller did not know more about it, nor did he know from whom he acquired it. for some reason none of the vertebrae I have seen from the austin chalk have got this colour, and also it seems that from the santonian of texas no plesiosaurs have been described yet? in older and younger layers i see Libonectes, Elasmosaurus and Styxosaurus, but they come from Turonian and Campanian layers. Perhaps someone here can help me, or knows a researcher who is specialised in plesiosaurs (elasmosaurs?)? Thanks in advance, Sander

  24. Plesiosaur propodial(proximal end)

    From the album Denton County, TX

    2-23-17 Denton County, TX
  25. Another weekend find, looks like a broken Vertebre - it's got a different shape to it, seems more oblong than round based on the shape of the half I have. Rick noted looks sort of like a Plesiosaur vert? If anyone can ID it from what fragment we have, that would be AWESOME and much appreciated! Let me know if you need more photos. Found: Greensmill Run, Greenville, NC. In a hole with an array/time span of things from cretaceous to native american artifacts (enchodus teeth, crow shark, shale bone, great white, giant white, modern tiger shark teeth and pottery.
