  1. Some of you who've known me for awhile know I am on the hunt for a large 3 in+ plesiosaur tooth. I acquired one this month at last! This beauty here measures 3.75 inches exact in a straight line. He came in a large chunk of rock, so I had to chip off quite a bit of matrix, cutting myself slightly in the process from a hidden shark tooth. I opted to leave this matrix because I think it looks good, and I fear further breaking would break the tooth. He's a Zarafasaura oceanis from Sidi Daoui of Morocco, dated to 70.6 - 66 million years old (late Cretaceous).
  2. Plesiosaur vert

    A very rare find from North Carolina. As is most any dinosaur material. I am currently in the process of donating this vert to the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, to become their first Plesiosaur vert from North Carolina in their collection.
  3. Here is a sequence of pictures of a Zarafasaura jaw that I just finished preparing and restoring. It started out as not much to look at but turned out pretty well in the end. I did not restore the rear of the mandibles, only what needed to be done to make it a great looking piece. You can follow along through the pictures. Enjoy. Seth
  4. Plesiosaur tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    My first Plesiosaur tooth with a length of 1 cm from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden, Lower Jurassic.
  5. Hello all. Another find from my recent trip which remained in situ. I am still searching for my first bone find or confirmed sea reptile I.D. So here goes. I am hoping this is a vertebrae from an ichthyosaur... Fingers crossed.
  6. Plesiosaur paddle bone

    From the album Other Locations

    9-5-16 Collin County, TX
  7. Elasmosaur tooth

    Tooth of an Elasmosaur. Found together with a mosasaur and shark tooth.
  8. Elasmosaur tooth

    Tooth of an Elasmosaurid.
  9. Hi folks I've been digging through a few lumps of rock I collected a couple of years ago from Aust, Gloucestershire, UK which is rich in plesiosaur stuff among other things. I found these two pieces (three now :/ ) which were touching. I'm guessing they're plesi paddle bones. Am I right? Thanks John
  10. Can anyone tell me if I am on the right track. I collected this fossil in a creek bed in North Texas consisting of mostly upper cretaceous limestone with many bivalves, ammonites, etc. It appears to be a scapula to me possibly from a plesiosaur. Can anyone offer any input?
  11. Great fossil hunt today. I made a new hunting buddy and I finally found a really nice Plesiosaur vert.
  12. Plesiosaur vertebra

    From the album Marine reptiles

    Plesiosaur vertebra from Aust Cliff, Gloucestershire, U.K.
  13. Title says it all really. Am I right in thinking a plesiosaur vert is thicker? How can you tell if you can only see the top or bottom but not the thickness? Thanks John
  14. Part Of A Plesiosaur Propodial

    From the album North Sulphur River Texas

    Distal part of a plesiosaur propodial. North Sulphur River Texas find..
  15. I had a good day fossil hunting North Sulphur River creeks. I found Xiphactinus jaw pieces, skull bones, Mosasaur verts and what I think is a worn Mosasaur or Plesiosaur bone. The large jawbone has 14 sockets for teeth and 6 partial teeth.
  16. I found this large piece of bone at North Sulphur River Texas. The area is Cretaceous Ozan Formation. It's very worn but I wanted to see what everyone thought it was. Thanks
  17. Water was too high but I managed to pick up a few Mosasaur verts and my first Plesiosaur vert.
  18. Today my father and I went to Ramanessin brook again. I spent the majority of the day sifting and I wasn't finding very much so I decided to explore a little bit. After taking a few sifts at a couple of other spots and not finding much at all I decided to walk back to my original spot and spend the rest of the day collecting there despite not having found a huge amount. Good thing I did because when I was walking back to that spot I looked down and couldn't believe what I saw. A massive plesiosaur vertebra, I was in complete shock! This thing was just sitting there! I also found what I thought could possibly be a plesiosaur vert the other day but it was full of iron. I cleaned that one off today and now I am convinced that it is a plesiosaur vert as well. I am still in shock. 2 plesiosaur vertebrae in 2 trips!
  19. Found these today..any help would be great thanks! 1.
  20. From the album Cretaceous

    Cimoliasaurus magnus (plesiosaur vertebrae) Upper Cretaceous Wenonah Formation Ramanessin Brook Holmdel, NJ.
