  1. Reptile fossil???

    Hi everyone. Saw this fossil online being labelled as fish or reptile fossil. Very cool and interesting piece but I can’t really see what It could be... I don’t think it is a fish fossil. It is 22cm and weighs just over 1kg. I have no location... sorry. On the 4th picture there is some kind of bone or scale material, don’t really know... What to you think? Anything helps. Thanks! kind regards
  2. Reptile or dinosaur from Ganzhou

    Any idea if this is a small dinosaur or reptile? It’s found in Ganzhou, China. I’m sorry these are all the photos I got from the fossil collector.
  3. Kem Kem Beds fossil id

    Could anyone put a name on this bone from the Kem Kem beds? When i purchased it there was a lot of sediment stick on it and looks more like a strange looking stone, but what came out is a complete bone.
  4. Dear Fellow Fossil Fanatics, I just had a great day at Big Brook, found some shark teeth but also 3 specimens that I am not sure at all what to make of. Any insights would be awesome! Best, Huttner
  5. I didn't get any firm id on following tooth. Although worn, there are still spots of enamel, and it may have 2 worn down cutting edges. I'm assuming mosasaur. Any other opinions?
  6. Tooth with serrations?

    I came across this tooth in a local shop. Could only get two pics but I zoomed in on one to show the cutting edge. The tooth is labeled "carnosaur" and it's close to one inch in length. Not sure if this tooth is dinosaur or crocodile. I came across a previous thread here on the forum with pictures of a similar cutting edge that suggested it may be a mosasaur. Hoping for a possible ID before a possible purchase. Thank you!
  7. Found in Northern South Dakota

    I apologize in advance for not taking more photos of this. My father in law found this by Shadehill Reservoir in Northern South Dakota. He would really like to know what it is. It is over a foot long and close to a foot wide at its widest point. It is close to 6 inches in height. I am not where it is now so these are approximate. Thanks in advance for any help.

  11. The Four-Eyed Fossil Lizard

    This one's a bit of an odd critter; an ancient monitor lizard with eyes in the back of its head: http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018/04/four-eyed-lizard-walked-earth-49-million-years-ago
  12. Reptile jaw sections ?

    Are these reptile jaw sections they are form kem kem ?
  13. Fossil shop mystery

    Hey all. So I stopped in a shop selling fossils yesterday and they had some things I didn’t recognize. Some bits look like vertebrae, others like the jaw bone of a salmon, others possible teeth. The shop owner had no idea what they were and I didn’t feel confident enough to hazard a guess. Also, they have no clue where it came from but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was from Morocco as many of their fossils are. Because of the file size I’ll have to post the pics in a few replies below...
  14. Reptile fossil from Ganzhou?

    This fossil is dug up from Ganzhou from a construction site. It looks like a reptile of unidentified species in the late Cretaceous period. Sorry, that are all the photos I got from my friend and it's not prepped. Any idea what it is?
  15. Kem Kem bone

    Last saturday i went to a fossil convention. there i bougth this bone. it's from Morroco, Kem Kem. @LordTrilobite already looked at it and he said it could be a pelvis fragment or a shoulder blade. I would like what you think about it its around 10 to 15 centimeters long
  16. Good afternoon for all, in the greater Forum Fossil of the world ! Unfortunately the seller does not have much information regarding this bone. It is described in the advertisement simply as African unidentified bone of reptile, Kem Kem. Any help what that might be? Thanks for all the help!
  17. Baby Keichousaurus hui

    This is a picture of my baby Keichousaurus hui that I got on an auction site for very cheap price. The slate is 8x5cm but the reptile itself is 5cm. It is very small so to see the bones and details you need a magnifying glass. Hope you like the post.
  18. Tethysaurus neck vertebrae

    Tethysaurus's are one of my favorite Marine reptile species. They are a species of more primitive mosasaur and they are considered to be related to Russelosaurus and Yaguarasaurus. Even though not as known and loved as Mosasaurs and other large Mosasaurids, they are still quite a fascinating species of Marine reptile.
  19. Limb? bone Reptilian? Florida

    Hoping this isnt too incomplete up to ID. Was in the dugong scrap garage box but I'm pretty sure now it shouldnt have been....Anyone recognize what it actually is and what it belongs to? It has a nice twisted shape to it. The base is relatively flat and seems to be only very slightly worn. The opposite end seems to have been pretty much sheared off and has an interesting groove remaining that I've circled in red. Thanks for the looks and any info you might be able to provide. Latest thought is that its reptilian, possibly a gator, maybe an ulna? Regards, Chris
  20. Hello,is this keichousaurus genuine?i've found it on ebay
  21. Fossil?

    Hi All, Wondering if you could give me some feedback. Is this a fossil, preservation? Cell plates are visible and imprints. Photos taken wet. Thanks!! Kim
  22. Santa Fe River fossil-oddities

    Hi all, From Fossil Voyages with @Cris, at the end of our trip together in the Santa Fe, I got spoiled with a bunch of great fossils! Unfortunately I don’t remember what everything was... Anyways, please help me putting an ID on all of these! All from the Santa Fe River in north Florida, and all likely from the Pleistocene. Thanks in advance, Max #1
  23. My name is Gary L Thompson I am the sole discover of the Mosasaur Prognathadon stadtmani that currently resides at BYU, This specimen was found in Cedaredge, Colorado in 1975. It took over 40 years to get the complete casting of this mosasaur. I thought maybe this might be a story of interest for you since this is an extremely rare fossilized specimen from about 85 million years ago and the fossilized marine reptile is the only one ever found on the western side of the prehistoric sea that once covered an area ranging from Utah to Kansas and Nebraska. It was a ferocious creature approximately 35 feet long. The excavated skull bones remain the property of Brigham Young University’s Paleontology Museum." I just wanted update every one on some misleading information regarding the find and to send the most current information updates. It appears that the Genus name is probably going to change to a brand new Genus, the scientific community is still discussing this one, will try to update when that happens. BYU has now completed the entire skeleton and now have it up as of the beginning of the year. I have included current photos of it along with "My true story" and all corresponding credits for the find, scientific research and preparation of the specimen. I just thought these might be of interest to you. The photos are from the BYU webpage. My true story finding a mosaster.docx Order of Contact and Credits.docx Original_aticle_1975.docx
