  1. What is it

    Anyone know what kind of dinosaur? im going to start grinding on it with the dremel
  2. Whose teeth?

    I found this on a gulf coast beach near Venice Florida. There were many shark teeth and other fossils in the area. I believe it is a reptile tooth, but do not know how to tell if it is an alligator, or some other aquatic reptile. It has a fine ridge running up one side. Any clues or help with ID is appreciated.
  3. Titonian bone

    On our last hunt in the late jurassic deposits Natalie found a niece pice of bone. Marine reptiles are found in those deposits but there are also acasionaly remains of land animals like dinosaurs since the deposits were made near the coast. we have no idea of what kind of bone it is or from what it might have belonged, any imput is welcome:
  4. Charmouth bone

    I and @Pterygotus(who gave me permission to mention him in this topic) had a minor disagreement over whether or not this was bone. I thought it was bone because it displays obvious cell structure and my tour guide said it was bone. Any suggestions? thanks in advance!
  5. nj Cretaceous tooth id please

    if some one can id this tooth pleasealthough worn and ,bottom and top damaged, could it be plesiosaur
  6. Sauropterygia bones

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    A 13 cm long stone with three nothosaur vertebrae and another unidentified small bone piece from a triassic "Bonebed" in a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg). The verts are very small, especially the one beside the bone fragment. The bigger ones are about 2 cm long. Detailed pictures:
  7. Nothosaur tooth

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    A nicely preserved 3 cm long Nothosaur tooth from a triassic "Bonebed" from a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg).
  8. Sauropterygia bones

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    A 20 cm long stone with a couple of bones from a triassic "Bonebed" in a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg). On the plate are two vertebrae, one rib and two unidentified bones. The quality of the bones is partly not good (especially the vert in the middle is bad preserved). The prep was not too difficult but it took quite a long time to finish it. Some more pictures:
  9. Help identify tooth please.

    I found this tooth In desert near Albuquerque New Mexico. Could it be some kind of marine reptile? I would appreciate any ideas about ID. Thanks
  10. Below are some more of my macro fossils that I’ve recently put in 16”X12” Riker mount displays. All of the specimens in these displays come from the Miocene of Virginia. The first display with shark/ray specimens, the second display with bony fish specimens, the third display with marine mammal specimens and the last display with reptile specimens. I'm getting some more Riker mount displays Saturday and I'll post some more displays with more of my macro specimens from the Miocene of Virginia. To see a previous post with Riker mount displays with macro specimens from the Paleocene Aquia Formation of Maryland and the Eocene Nanjemoy Formation of Virginia check out the below link: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/101415-a-few-riker-mounts-with-specimens-from-the-aquia-formation-of-maryland-and-the-nanjemoy-formation-of-virginia/ To see a previous post with Riker mount displays with macro specimens from the Miocene Round Mountain Silt Formation of California, the Eocene/Oligocene Chadron/Brule Formations of Nebraska, and the Miocene of Virginia check out the below link: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/101441-a-few-more-riker-mount-displays-with-macro-specimens-from-the-round-mountain-silt-formation-of-california-the-chadronbrule-formations-of-nebraska-and-the-miocene-of-virginia/ Display with shark/ray specimens. The top of the display has shark vertebrae. Then there are Otodus megalodon teeth (for size reference the largest megalodon is 4.75” and the smallest is .625”). Then there are some Hemipristis serra shark teeth. The bottom has two eagle ray barbs and pieces of eagle ray dental plates. Display with bony fish specimens. The top of the display has bony fish vertebrae with a Wahoo jaw (6.5” long for size reference), a hypural fan, several bill fish bills and two small fish jaws. Then the middle has lots of fish jaws with some black drum jaws on the far left and most of the other jaws to the right being red drum. The bottom has ocean going sun fish bones including three jaws and there are some more bony fish vertebrae on the far right. Displays with marine mammal specimens. The top and middle of the display has Cetacean bulla and periotic ear bones (for size reference the largest is 3“). The bottom left has Cetacean vertebrae, flipper bones and two small jaw fragments. The right contains Cetacean teeth. Display with reptile specimens. The very top has two coprolites most likely crocodile. Then some crocodile jaw pieces with a number of crocodile teeth and a crocodile scute (for size reference 4.5” by 3.25”) on the far right. The bottom has turtle caprice/plastron pieces and a good number of leatherback turtle carapace bones. Marco Sr.
  11. Fish / Reptile Tooth?

    Age: Eocene Aprox. 40 million years ago. Location: Western Washington Puget Sound area. First two photos have bad lighting but are just to show size. Second photos have higher quality. I believe this is a tooth. This trip I pulled out a shark tooth as well today (last photo) however this is more round than the usual shark tooth. I suspect fish or reptile but wanted further confirmation. If anyone has any ideas, they are welcome to comment
  12. Chinese Reptile

    Dear Forum I acquired this fossil today from a Gentleman, who is collecting fossils since many years and bought it in the 80s or 90s. As far as he remembers is the fossil originally from china. Would be very interested to know the species and any other information.
  13. Can you help me identify this tooth? From pictures on the Internet, it seems like it could be either an alligator tooth or maybe barracuda? The surface of the tooth has tiny ridges (you can see the stripes, I hope) There is also a very deep indentation on the side that I would consider the root. Thank you! Paula
  14. I found this on Myrtle Beach, Jan 3, 2020. It kind of looks like a snake to me, but I can't find anything on the Internet that looks quite like it to confirm. The first photo is the underside of it - a very detailed imprint of something in the shape of a burst. The other photos are of the top of it. Note the two bumps at the front, almost looking like eyes, and the two holes that look like nostrils. Thank you for your help! Paula
  15. Hello everyone. I am possibly going on yet another trip to Charmouth to try my luck again but every time I go, I am never able to find any marine reptile bone. Has anyone got any tips for finding bone? I usually hunt in the boulders nearer to the Charmouth side of Black Ven in the caught up pyrite patches. Am I looking in the right spot? Thanks in advance.

  18. Reptilian Skull?

    Hi, the skull below is found at Ganzhou of Jiangxi Province, China. It is very small, about 4.5cm in length. Does it look like a reptilian skull?
  19. Help on Claw ID

    Hello everyone, I found this nice claw in South Dakota over the summer and have yet to find a definitive match for its identity. It's about a centimeter and a half long.
  20. Unidentified Jaw, Mammal?

    Hello everyone. Ive got a tough one for you guys. So I have a fossil jaw with a single canine tooth that I’ve had in my collection for a couple years. It was a gift from my boyfriend, so no locality. I tried to have it identified on the fossil forum Facebook group when I first got it, but no one knew what it was for sure. I had a paleontologist post a response and this is what he had to say: ”Hi Marielle Krenzelak, I'm a palaeontologist but I'm not entirely sure what you have there. I'm not concerned with the material that others don't think is bone. It looks to me like the canine tooth (the only tooth you have) is broken. I think the jaw is mammalian based on its overall morphology. I don't think that it is a horse, based on the shape of the symphysis (area where the left and right jaws would have connected) and its position relative to the canine. It is interesting that it has a long post-canine diastema (the smooth area after the canine and before the alveoli, or holes, where the next teeth would have gone). I also think the other suggestions (boar and goat) are also incorrect, again based on the length of the diastema and the shape of the symphysis. Finally, the age constraint someone gave you of less than 20,000 years is not supportable. I've worked on mammals back to ~ 55,000,000 years that have similar preservation. Barring that, I'm just not sure what it is you have there.” So I thought I’d try again on this forum to see if anyone has any idea what it might be? I know we have many experts and actual paleontologists on here. If anyone could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link to the post about it on Facebook in case anyone is in the fossil forum Facebook group and wants to take a look at it: https://www.facebook.com/groups/135008766530423/permalink/1768488489849101?sfns=mo Thank you for any thoughts or insights you have to share!
  21. Cenozoic Giant Reptile Material?

    In recent years, I have become just as interested, if not more so, in non-dinosaurian prehistoric large reptiles than in dinosaurs themselves. Especially giant reptiles of the Cenozoic. Right now one of my prize pieces is a partial Megalania vertebra from Australia. However, I would like to acquire more large Cenozoic reptile fossils in the future, such as sebecosuchians, palaeophiids, giant crocodiles and giant tortoises. What material of this kind have TFF members seen available commercially? Would also like to have information on Triassic non-dinosaur reptiles. And Palaeosaniwa, Hell Creek's Komodo dragon.
  22. Hell Creek Fish (?) Jaw Section

    Hey everyone, I found this little jaw section at a microsite in North Dakota's Hell Creek formation this past summer and I'm finally getting around to posting about it. I believe it's fish, possibly gar, but I'm not sure. I'd like to know people's opinions. It's about 1.3 centimeters long. Thanks, Noel
  23. Unknown dinosaur? bone

    Hi paleoguys! Some years ago a friend of mine found on the Isle of Wight-the UK (dinosaur coast/Barremian age) what seems to be a reptile bone. It looks like a transverse process or something like that. We have no idea. We'd be very grateful if you enlight us and solve this mystery. More picture to come...
  24. Triassic tooth from Muschelkalk-Keuper

    Hello does anyone know what's tooths they belong too? they are from border Muschelkalk-Keuper, Germany.
  25. Hello! I am looking for a good keichousaurus for my collection. After a legal search I found these two. One is of a 28cm adult reptile, prepared with hand tools and I think in ventral position. The other is a juvenile reptile prepared with acid and 16cm hand tools and in dorsal position. Which one do you think is better? position and preparation ... Thank you!!
