  1. Neovenator tooth

  2. I have a dinosauromorph foot print is it rare? I will upload photos of my collection when I get home later today so stay updated.
  3. Triassic Pterosaur Found In Utah

    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/rare-desert-pterosaur-fossil-discovered-utah-180969995/
  4. I love collecting Devonian corals. No two are exactly alike and some like this specimen are much rarer then the most collectible fossil (complete trilobites from any period) from New York. Confluens is a highly sought after coral species. Only found in a very limited area. I find one colony for every 500 solitary Heliophyllum halli and only one colony in ten is complete like this specimen. That's why this piece had to be prepped. Well preserved epibionts can be seen in great detail thanks to the meticulous prep job. Heliophyllum halli confluens (Hall, 1877) Middle Devonian colonial rugose coral 88mm x 71mm x 60mm. Found 9/12/2018 in Livingston County, New York. Found - Mikeymig, Prep - Malcolm T. BEFORE AND AFTER PREP PICTURES
  5. Hello whats are the possibility of getting Lythronax, Teratophoneus, Appalachiosaurus and Dryptosaurus tooth fossils ?
  6. Hi all hope your all well. If anyone is willing to trade any rare dino teeth then please message me on here or pm me if preferred. Thank you Liam
  7. Hi everybody, I am looking for a good and complete Hyneria tooth from the Devonian of Red Hill. Feel free to contact me if you have something nice. I can give good material, I have many stuff from the Solnhofen area and more. Best wishes from France :-) Frederic
  8. Alopias Latidens Thresher Shark

    From the album Maryland Fossils

    1/2 inch in height Miocene Choptank Formation
  9. Hello everyone, Haven't seen enough of these “show us” threads lately, and I don’t want to walk to a museum, so I started this thread! I want to see the rarest shark teeth in your collection! It doesn’t have to be self collected, just have to have it. Please include a photo or a few and a measurement or a scale and a description. I’m expecting great things out of this thread!
  10. Dear friends, i hope i am not boring with my amber passion Its real obsession for me This time i'd like to show wonderful, i can say - almost perfect Pseudoscorpion ( False Scorpion ). People thinks often that is extremely rare but its not. I had i think about 30 pieces in career. Often they are very small, even only 1mm. This one had 2mm in max with body and pedipalps. What is interesting - do you see that drop inside ambdomen ? It was Enhydros "running water" but there is huge discussion in amber inclusion market what exactly it is. One side ( with me ) think that is running drop of water inside air sap. Second side think that is moving air bubble. Please check my movie from yt - i showed other amber with very nice Enhydros. I am sorry for the music - if someone got soft ears, turn off sound. For me logical is drop of water. What do you think about it ? If we talk about picture colours - i was playing with lights. Best one in friends opinion ? Cheers from Poland. Artur
  11. Hello Friends, This time i'd like to show something that is very rare for me. Never before i didnt saw that bug in baltic amber. I didnt found yet any material about inclusions of Lygaeoidea. Body 3mm. Enjoy
  12. Found this trilobite Saturday in northern Kentucky. Is it Acidaspis cincinnatiensis or Primaspis crosotus. looks like it might be complete. nervus about trying to prep it since either one is really rare.
  13. T rex teeth and rarity

    I was just asked a question by a couple of comic book collectors who seem to have acquired a passing interest in fossils, as to the rarity of T rex fossils especially teeth. I stated that T rex is one of the best described theropods via the fossil record and that the teeth while very expensive were readily available. The follow up question was along the lines of how many teeth have been found or are field collected on a yearly basis. While I think it might be an impossible question to answer I thought I’ll query the members of the forum.
  14. Something that comes up for me now and again(like right now), is when someone is selling a fossil of something that is extremely rare, or maybe BEYOND extremely rare. Is there an easy place to check that kinda stuff? Find out if fossils are being found of them? Specifically Ive seen sarchosuchus teeth and scutes for sale, but as far as I know, only 1 specimen has ever been found, and that was only the skull, and....I dunno, maybe a few verts or something. Even if a number more have been found, like a dozen individuals or something, there's really no way you would ever find something like that for sale would you? And if you did, it would HAVE to be in the hundreds of thousands or millions, or something?
  15. Odontocephalus sp.

    From the album Trilobites

    Odontocephalus sp. (possibly O. selenurus) Field Collection Devonian Imported fill (Dundee, Bois Blanc, Amherstberg Fms), London, Canada. Cephalic fringe fragment. Very rare in Ontario with only a small number of fragments reported in the last 130 years.
  16. About a month ago, I headed out on two fossil trips to the well-known St. Leon roadcut in Indiana. I was hunting in the Liberty formation (late Ordovician) with the sole goal of finding some nice trilobites (which I definitely achieved!). Along with multiple rare trilobites, I was able to find some excellent examples of other fossils. The spoils were totally awesome, and I am itching to go back. I hope you enjoy. Best for last.
  17. Picked this tooth up last month, just had a chance to take some pictures in proper light. Do not have the tools to clean matrix off root safely without damaging , so waiting for a friend to do it properly. The tooth measures 4.1" long and has amazing colors that I have never seen from this location.
  18. Hey all. I saw this fossil arthropod online for a really low price and the seller claims it’s a « super rare arthropod Bradoriida » from Mongolia. Is it really what it sais and is it really that rare? Worth it? Here are some pictures of it. Thanks for all the help. Cheers
  19. Araripesuchus tooth ?

    This tooth was label has a Araripesuchus tooth but does its belongs to one its from Neuquen, Argentina ?
  20. This tooth is the biggest tooth I have seen come out of Cuba, it is a huge primary tooth. I will have to get Matty Swilp to restore the tooth when it arrives.
  21. Added three new teeth in recent times to my collection of exotic meg teeth, I'd like to share since there,s not to many images from these localities out there, the photos maybe in shabby quality because I pulled them directly from my Instagram page to save time. 1) This partial tip of a meg was found in the Chiba prefecture of Japan! Acquiring this, even just a fragment was a real pain in the butt as megs from Japan are extremely scare. 2) Even though its not a Meg of course but still being the closest ancestor, this 3.1inch chubutensis tooth was found at a land site in Lecce, Italy with gorgeous color! 3) This tooth measuring 4.1 inches came from new site in Bangkalan City, Java, Indonesia. A majority of the megs here were found with absolutely terrible preservation so this one is one of the best out of the bunch! A few more pics of these teeth can be found on their posts on my page at https://www.instagram.com/nyislandfossils/ if its ok to post this here.
  22. Meglodon tooth origin?

    Hello all! Hope everyone's years are off to a happy and huntfull start! Well I started the year off spending some Christmas cash on a meglodon tooth. (Having only found fragments myself) any way I was wondering if there is a tie between locations and colors of teeth. I found this beauty at an pass-proof price. It is a beautiful orange/red. At 5 inches almost exactly. The previous owner says it came from the st. Mary's river area of Georgia. (Pretty close to where I was when I got it). I am just curious if this is a common color for other areas or even in the st Mary's area? Thank you all for any input.
  23. Has anyone seen this before on a pathological megalodon tooth. I am thinking of buying this tooth from a friend and wanted to hear what the shark to professionals think. Sorry for quality of pictures, I'm waiting for better.
  24. Hi, I found these two stones in a creek bed in Northern Missouri. The only two I was able to come across thus far. I've honestly never seen anything like this, and was wondering if any of you folks had some insight? Thanks!!! The bumps stick out on this, but they are smoothened bumps.
  25. Dear friends, This time i'd like to show something big, as for Baltic amber - If inclusion got 22mm - its a monster ! And especially plant in this condition is very very rare becouse plants often died on resin surface and also they are often totally oxidised becouse of being close to surface or partially in amber and partially on surface. Extinct Glyptostrobus europaeus 22mm is a museum quality example, i was confirm ID with great specialist, author of books about Baltic Ambers - Carsten Grohn. He said to me - .. What a shame Personally i love botanical inclusions, they are much more rare as i said but also showing how was looks like "amber forest" more than 40 millions years ago. Sadly i cant upload more pictures in this way but i dont want cut them and upload to galery becouse quality gonna be bad. Have a nice watching Artur PS - I am sorry for my sad english.
