  1. Hello, I have two fragments of what looks like turtle shells. The triangular one was found on SW Florida Beach. The rectangular one Tampa Bay, Florida beach and has a curve They both have divisional lines or segments on one side. Is there enough to ID? (4 photos of front and back of 2 fragments) Thanks so much.
  2. I need help with this scale pattern. Snake or lizard? Cenomanian cretaceous
  3. Bone Nodule - Saltwick (UK)

    Hi, I found this bone nodule today at Saltwick Bay (UK). I'm quite certain it is bone of some sort, but not sure whether fish or reptile. Could anybody please help me with an ID? Thanks, Mark
  4. Dinosaur or reptile(Lizard) limb bone? Found in Nanxiong Formation, Ganzhou, China. It was found with dinosaur eggs and egg shell was preserved together in matrix

  6. A chevron bone? But from what?

    Bought this bone from a private collector some years back. It's a big chevron(?) bone from an unidentified creature, found in the Kem Kem Beds of Morocco. Anyone who would have a guess at what this could be from? It's obviously some big creature with a chevron bone at that size, so perhaps a large dinosaur or crocodile of some sort?
  7. I bought this bone in a German store a while ago. It is an "unidentified" bone from the Kem Kem Beds in Morocco. I am not exactly sure what it is, or what it's from, but to me it looks a bit like a small skull element or perhaps a broken-off part of a vertebrate? Are there anyone who can tell what kind of bone this is? It's about 5,5 cm in length.
  8. I can't find any pictures that focus on Edaphosaurus claws, and I can't zoom in enough on pictures to get a clear visual of any claws, so I can't see any differences between Dimetrodon and Edaphosaurus claws are. They're both really small compared to the bodies, so it's hard to see from full body/skeleton pictures, and they wouldn't be from enough angles to be sure. Someone who has dealt with lots of them, including on articulated specimens, has said that they're almost the same, and as far as he knows, but isn't 100% sure about it, the biggest difference, the only one he is aware of, is that Dimetrodon claws are curved on the bottom, like raptor/general theropod claws, while Edaphosaurus claws, equally sharp, are mostly flat on the bottom, like spino toe claws. Is that the case? Does anyone happen to know?
  9. What is this tooth?

    This reptile tooth was in Heinz Walter Kozur's collection. But we don't know where he was collect it. Can anybody identitify what species (or genus) had this tooth? Whe think that is a Theropod maxillar tooth, because the tooth enamel is very thin, and trailing edge serration on it.

  11. Made it to NSR yesterday, managed a nice haul. Was a bit hazardous in the rain, but the isolation was nice. Wondering especially about the plate, but any knowledge dropped on me is always appreciated!
  12. North Sulphur River - Weird Finds

    Some of my odder finds from North Sulphur River. The pyritized baculite and the preserved skin were both found in the Ladonia area. The baculite was initially powdery white on the exterior, with just a bit of metallic luster showering. A light scrub with a soft toothbrush revealed the rest. The skin appears reptilian, but I would love further insights.
  13. Any Ideas what part of the creature these bean shaped bones are from ? Is it from the spine (intercentrum)? They are about 2 to 3mm in size. I was hoping to get the specific name of the bones like Atlas vertebrae. If if you know your Permian material I have a thread in the members collections that I have very little knowledge of and would love some help. Thank for looking . Cheers Bobby
  14. Awesome Coprolite

    I just got an awesome coprolite. I generally hate those things, and would never pay money for one, but I came across this one and it has so many visible identifiable remains, I couldn't help being really impressed. Ive always wanted to see a coprolite that had clear remains in it. Sadly they're much smaller and harder to see in person than in these pictures, so I can only use these display pictures for the time being, until I take a magnified look. There's clearly fish scales, seemingly from different types of fish, and apparently squid hooks and such. I'm excited to find a good illuminated magnifying glass and really studying it up close:) Maybe even a microscope to take a closer look!
  15. I found this in Monmouth County, New Jersey (USA) last week and was wondering if anyone knew what it was. When I first picked it up, I thought it was turtle shell but the bone structure doesn't compare well at all with the other turtle shell examples I've found. The top part is what I was focusing on because it doesn't look that was formed as a result of breaks and wear to me. I guess it could be older breaks and if that's the case, I'm pretty sure that I'm out of luck getting an ID on it but I figured I would give it a shot. As always, all help is greatly appreciated! -Frank
  16. Tethysaurus?

    Hello! Just after some opinions on this. The teeth look a bit like they belong to Tethysaurus but I'm not 100 percent sure. I'm still getting to grips with mosasaurus etc! It seems to have an okay amount present within the rock. Jaws, sections of the skull, some vertebra. Does it look good or another potential composite? To me it looks pretty natural, however some composites are getting good these days! Thanks for the help, I'm still learning what to look out for!
  17. Petrified snake head eating lunch

    I found this today. Hard as a rock.
  18. I'm interested in this skull, I have always wanted a Halisaurus specimen! Region -Morocco, Khoribga Size- 16.93 Inches This skull looks good to me, but is obviously missing parts, such as the rear of the lower jaw, some teeth, areas around the Eyes2. I'd like to get people's opinions if possible? The seller is very honest, and trustworthy in my opinion, The skull does look like its gone a few rounds in a ring, however this is my holy grail and something I've wanted since being a kid! which is what its all about right? However, I don't want the 5 year old within me to make silly judgments as it is listed for just over a grand. Is the skull a composite? Worth restoring myself? Genuine but rough? Worth obsessing over? I know it's one of those things were people will say "well it all depends on how much it is worth to you" however I don't want my naivety to cause me getting ripped off. Thanks for the help!
  19. Hi, I was going through my shark teeth and found this fossil that looks like a thick puzzle piece. It has thick spongy edges. It's about 1 5/8" in length and 7/8" at widest point. I Found it on a beach, SW Florida Beach. Looking at google images it appears to to a turtle scute. What do you think it is? Thanks, Lynn
  20. What type of vertebra is this

    Hi does anyone recognise this type of vert. It came with some other material I acquired and I’m not sure what it is. It’s pissibky from the Isle of Wight. thanks Nick
  21. This specimen was said to be the skin plate/shield of a dinosaur. Locality is not known. Any idea what it is and if it is genuine fossil?
