  1. Cretaceous Marine Not a Clue

    Have been prepping out a few bits and pieces encased in matrix to see if anything interesting. This is from the Toolebuc formation in Central Queensland Australia. The formation is Albian about 100 million years old. My best guess is this is a skull piece (partial quadrate) the bit the jaw hinges on from a marine reptile. There appears to be three teeth socket points looking at what I assume to be the bottom. The problem with that idea is they are only 5 to 10 mm deep and too close to the hinge point. The specimen is only a partial bone but hoping complete enough for someone to recognise to the general species from photos. Thanks for all feedback in advance. I may need to retake some photos from slightly different angles. Mike
  2. Ichthyosaur paddle bones

    From the album Holzmaden

    These are four Ichthyosaur paddle bones and another Ichthyosaur bone from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. The Ichthyosaur paddle bones are about 5 cm big so not too small. There are also a lot of belemnites on the plate. Because of them the prep work was kinda time intensive. It took about six hours to reveal everything. Here are some more pictures:
  3. Fossilized Egg?

    I found this sometime in the 1970’s State: New York, County: Suffolk, Township: Brookhaven, Hamlet: Rocky Point on Broadway Beach on the shore of Long Island Sound. The fossil weighs about one ounce. The hole was there when found, through it there is hollow space, but I can also see that there is some structure or substance inside.
  4. mosasaurus or what ?

    i can only put one picture at a time
  5. Hello, could you please tell me what kind of mosasaur teeth are these? Thank you very much.
  6. pterosaur bone

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is a 11 cm long pterosaur bone (maybe a flight phalanx) from the lower Jurassic from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. It was a very luck find as I found it on a stone, which I took with me because of another fossil. So I am very happy with this find although the preservation is not the best.... Two more pictures:
  7. pterosaur bones (perhaps Dorygnathus)

    From the album Holzmaden

    This is probably one of my best find so far from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden. Its a plate with some pterosaur bones, which is very rare in Holzmaden as these are marine desposits. The bigger bone might be a Humerus. Before I was able to find this piece I only found a few isolated pterosaur bones. Hopefully I can find a complete one one day The prep of this specimen took about 5 hours. Before the prep it was visible that these are pterosaur bones so I was very surprised ... Some more pictures:
  8. I need help identifying.

    Hi I am needing help with identifying my fossil that I have found in Uneeda, which is located in Boone County West Virginia. This is my first try at this so be patient with me please. I've just took an interest in fossils about six months ago . Please help. Thanks!!!!
  9. Mosasaur jaw in matrix

    Hello, so I was thinking about buying this piece but i would love it if I could remove the matrix from it to make it look better. Is this possible? Thanks-
  10. UFO (unidentified fossil object)

    Found in a loft during renovation. Wrapped in newspaper dating 1978, looks like a reptile but not sure, can anybody identify this for me. I am not a fossil collector.
  11. I watched a show on PBS last night, "When Whales Walked: Journeys in Deep Time." I just happened to notice it on the guide about 45 minutes before it was on. It is actually about more than the evolution of whales, the group having four-footed Early Eocene ancestors. There is a long segment roughly twenty minutes long each on crocodilians, birds, whales, and elephants. I thought it was a good show overall with interviews of researchers I know from their technical articles ( Hans-Dieter Sues, Philip Gingerich, Emmanel Gheerbrant, Christian de Muizon). However, each segment was also a little light on content for the topic and one was especially unclear. The one on birds made it appear that Deinonychus was an ancestor of later birds. They should have showed a chart showing when it lived in the Cretaceous with Archaeopteryx and the Liaoning birds millions of years before. There was a quick view of a family tree that seemed to illustrate that but it went by in a second or two. The segment on whales showed a lot of footage of modern whales and some great background on the "first whale," Pakicetus, but it didn't show any of the whales described in the past twenty years. It just mentioned that there had been recent discoveries. I thought there should have been at least a quick look at Ambulocetus and a few of the increasingly more marine-adapted forms that lived before Basilosaurus. They pretty much jumped from Pakicetus to Basilosaurus to the divergence of toothed and baleen whales. I think they could have spent the two hours just on the whales just as the title of the show led me to believe. I liked the segment on elephants because just as I was expecting the show to skip the earliest known members of the group, they go to Morocco and then talk to Emmanuel Gheerbrant who described Phosphatherium, the first probiscidean, which is known from the same early Eocene phosphate layer as a lot of the shark teeth we see at shows are from. Other extinct forms were descussed as well. Here's a link that takes to an online notice and website: https://www.pbs.org/show/when-whales-walked-journeys-deep-time/ Jess

  13. Fish or reptile teeth?

    Hi all, Need a little help identifying these teeth and stem(?) from Herne Bay, UK. Let's call them 1-7 from left to right (top view). Thanks in advance. Jay
  14. Hi folks, we bought a sample of microfossils originated from Waurika, Oklahoma. It was really fun to search through the little pile and try to ID the pieces. The result was a short video We decided to share it hoping for comments and more interesting info from the knowledgeable audience of this forum. What's really cool about microfossils is the amount of details and often stunning preservation of tiny pieces. Does anybody know a microfossil locality in Central California?
  15. I've been lucky enough to get hold of halisaur skull fragments over the past few years! I'd like to start assembling them in to some sort of composite for display purposes within my collection! I would love to see any Halisaurus skulls you guys have? Especially bone layouts so I may identify where my bones fit! Thanks!
  16. Mysterious vert

    Hi all, This is a vert from my old times collection that has always intrigued me. You guess by this topic that almost all of the finds in the region are from Kimmeridge-Hauterivian marine life, but the vert doesnt look like standard plesiosaur/ichthyosaur. There's a possibility it comes from pleistocene (there's a paleovalley nearby), but its weight and composition look jurassic. Something interesting or yet another plesiosaur vert? Sorry for polish, it was applied long ago.

  18. Weird Gator or not?

    Hi Everyone, I'm new here. My name is Michael. It's nice to meet all of you! I don't have any experience in Geology, But i was at the bottom of Masada in Israel, In a place believed to be the city of Gomorrah, from Sodom and Gomorrah, and i found what i thought was a petrified Boot. And only when i did a little more discovery did i see skeletal bones etc. It is very Heavy, about kg Anyone know what it is?
  19. Just a bit of fun with this garden find. Mrs R got me this week gardening because our friend from Brooklyn is visiting in a couple of weeks time. I was just putting some gravel on the topsoil of my pots to stop the birds digging out our succulent plant . I the spotted a small fossil bone fragments? The gravel is Scottish but I can’t at this point say any more than this. So the question is what if anything can we discern from this small piece of fossil bone? Archosaurs, mammal or fish? Just for fun and thanks all . Bobby
