  2. From a plesiosaur?

    From all the comparing Ive done, i think it almost looks exactly right, except I haven't been able to find any vertebrae with the things on the bottom(chevrons?) shaped like that; that 90degree bend. Is that familiar to anyone? Is that something that appears on plesiosaurs or not? (no better angle of the chevron(?)on the other side)
  3. nj cretaceous stream plesiosaur vert?

    Finally got back out to the streams today and was a beautiful day and great finds,,,,,my wife found what I believe to be plesiosaur if you guys can give us some info please...............thanks
  4. Elasmosaur jaw?

    Could this be a plesiosaur(elasmosaurus) jaw? I tried comparing but it's hard to see the picture of jaws in ideal positions and angles and such. Also, with so many extreme teeth it can be hard to see perfectly in a lot of pictures. (Location-wise and all, it could be, this is just about the physical jaw itself)
  5. Nice surprise today. Only my 2nd Plesiosaur vert in my first 4 years. Ive got about 150-1 ratio Mosasaur to Plesiosaur verts. It’s small but in great condition North Texas Late Cretaceous 86-90 mya

  8. I've been offered this partial jaw. It's not the best example in the whole world, but it does have some in-situ teeth. Does anyone have any thoughts on it? I believe that is actually Plesi and not some obscure Moroccan crocodile, but let me know if it's something else! I assume Elasmosaurus of some kind? The teeth look OK to me, I can't see any obvious sign of tampering, although I am always suspicious that one or two could have been added. No actual signs of it though. Any thoughts would be welcomed. My understanding is that these are extremely rare. But still, rarity's not everything. Apologies for the less-than-great pictures.

  10. I found this a few years ago and it continues to fascinate me. Occasionally my mind wants me to call it Dino but I’m pretty certain this belongs to a Plesiosaur. 9 inches long and weighs almost 10 lbs. North Central TX Late Cretaceous 86-92 mya

  12. Hello all, has anyone ever read this book? If not, you should try it. It describes the life and times of Mary Anning, the dirt-poor female fossil hunter from Lyme Regis, as she struggles to make her way when Geology was in its infancy and wealthy men were its only disciples. https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/fossil-hunter-shelley-emling/1101905135?ean=9780230103429&st=PLA&sid=BNB_DRS_New+Core+Shopping+Books_00000000&2sid=Google_&sourceId=PLGoP211455&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIncKMvIiX3AIVz4uzCh0GMwrOEAQYASABEgK83PD_BwE
  13. This is a Plesiosaur paddle right?

    Hi, Saw this for sale, was thinking of purchasing it, but wanted to confirm if this is indeed Plesiosaur. it is quite large for a partial paddle at 14 inches in length and from the Goulmima region in Morocco. Thanks.
  14. This is a continuation of the previous threads about the Plesiosaur jaw (Found near Goulmima, Morocco) that was for sale.... So i was thinking about the teeth that came with the jaw i bought, i asked a plesiosaur expert and he believes that the teeth look like they are from a Pliosaur as they don't seem to match Zarafasaura or Thililua. The teeth however, are quite slender (the bigger one is 1.5 inches and the smaller is around 1 inch), so i wanted to ask about any diagnostic features on either of the teeth that can help describe it to family level - especially since the teeth were associated with the jaw and if i can narrow down the teeth, then the jaw can be narrowed down too. Any ideas?

  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. 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)
  19. 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.
  20. 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.

    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.
