  1. Whale rib fragment or something else?

    Found this on a beach with some shark teeth and other bone fragments. Most of the bone around there is very worn and tumbled, making it impossible to ID. This piece however has some interesting features and could possibly be identifiable. I'm thinking its a piece of the top end of a whale rib? Anybody recognise this as something else, large terrestrial mammal maybe? Thanks
  2. Tooth, Tusk or Bone?

    Found in Green Mill Run creek on 8/21/2020. Unsure if it is whale tooth, some type tusk or Bone. My original assumption was Sperm Whale but some have thought maybe tusk??
  3. Fragment of tusk or rib bone?

    I’m not sure what I have here, my best guess is a portion of tusk or rib. As always, I appreciate everyone’s knowledge and help! I’ve created a light box and started adjusting the exposure to help with quality photos. Thanks
  4. Miocene whale jaw or rib?

    I posted in a trip report a few weeks ago that one of my boys found two big fragments--including the joint--of whale jaw in a cliff fall from Calvert cliffs. The assumption of jaw was based on what seemed like a good comparison to a jaw on fossilguy.com plus overall shape. But a commenter suggests that the joint is maybe not flat enough to be from a mandible and that this could really be a rib. So I'm looking for any second opinions. We would really like to get a proper ID, especially as my son wants to fill in the missing segment and make a single piece out of the two pieces for display. Because of the way they came out of the fall, although they were with each other, we aren't 100% sure of what the orientation of the two pieces ought to be with respect to one another. I have put the two pieces in a few different configurations just to show what each might look like. Having a proper ID would really help. Any whale experts, please have a look and let me know what you think.
  5. Mammoth rib? Or something else?

    This caught my eye and I'm lacking ice age material. Before bidding, I thought it best to double check it is mammoth and not horse or bison or something. It is 35 inch along the curve. It was found in the North Sea by fishermen. If someone can take a look, that would be great. Thanks.
  6. Miocene Big Bones Bonanza!

    Got out last week with my boys for a late afternoon trip to Calvert Cliffs to try a new spot. The beach was not very productive, yielding just a few smallish bull and tiger shark teeth. It seemed to have been worked over pretty hard before us. So we quickly turned our attention to a very sizable cliff fall at the tide line. Just looking over the surface, it didn't take long before boy #1 spotted what turned out to be a complete rib fully exposed. (Not 100% sure exactly what from but, I think, porpoise.) It was fragile and ended up coming out in three pieces, but we got the whole thing. On close inspection, it seems it also might have some predation marks. Then, while we were still working on that, just around the corner boy #2 yells out about something big. On the next chunk of cliff fall, also down low, he spotted a really nice piece of whale jaw also totally exposed! We got that out and also recovered the joint, although there is a missing piece in between. Still an awesome find! (The jaw is very solid, so we'll have to learn how to reconstruct the gap and make it one big piece.) We couldn't find any other part of it, unfortunately--we were all hoping for the skull. Just a little while later, on the next big chunk over, another collector pointed out a tiny surface of bone that he generously offered to my boys if they wanted to do the work to get it out. It turned out to be a really cool atlas vert from a porpoise (I think). It was extremely fragile, too, and in a couple of pieces that we'll have to glue together (any tips?), but another neat find. Then, just for good measure, boy #2 digs out a really nice tuna vert. (We added a 2nd, smaller one later.) This was all in maybe a 30-foot stretch. How no other collectors saw any of this stuff--and it was clear many had walked right by it all day--is a mystery. And to top it all off, on the way out with our bone haul, boy #1 spots a sweet croc tooth in the wash. It's funny that we set out to find some big shark teeth, and found almost none, but still ended up with maybe our best fossil trip ever! Enjoy the pics. And if anybody wants to confirm or correct ID's, please feel free.
  7. It was initially being sold as plesiosaur when I inquired about it, but seller says it was mislabelled and is pliosaur--which, if accurate, even better! But I am dubious over Pliosaur ID because I don't think I've ever seen any Morocco pliosaur fossils up for sale. But, if anyone can take a look and let me if A) It looks legit and B ) Whether you think Pliosaur or plesiosaur is accurate, that would be great. 80 million years old, from Morocco. 17 inches along the straight edge and 10 inches along the bottom. Thanks for any help!
  8. Is it a rib?

    Hello all. I am back with a couple fossil Id questions. I got a few things in a colection that was given to me from a ranch sale. Anyway this is the first question I have. Found supposedly in south Dakota 30+ years ago. Im thinkig a rib but that all and pretty much a guess. Any help would be much approciated.
  9. Texas Pleistocene Rib Bones

    I was searching the gravel bars in the Brazos River just southeast of Houston almost every day last week before the storm hit this weekend. Now the water's too high to look, but I found a pretty good assortment of fossilized Pleistocene aged bones during my trips. Most of what I've found have been fragments that are totally unidentifiable, but a handful still have some significant features that could lead to an ID. These two are both rib bones, but that's about all I know. The first one I initially thought was from a modern cow due to how clean it was, but after picking it up it was clear that it's definitely a fossil - it's mineralized all the way through and has a decent weight to it. The only animals of that size that could produce such a large rib that I can think of off the top of my head would be either bison or hoses. The second bone also looks like a rib, but a lot smaller than the first. It has two deep grooves on either side that seem to match up with pictures I've seen of the origin point in deer and horse ribs where the bone begins to branch away from the vertebral column. As always, any help would be appreciated!
  10. Deer rib or what?

    Hello all is this a modern deer rib and if not what do you think it is?
  11. Mammal rib

    I know rib bones are very difficult to identify. So I hope someone is up for the challenge. My best guess is deer. Brazos river find.
  12. Good evening, I have the possibility to buy these fragments of a rib of Einiosaurus. Because I am not yet that familiar with dinosaur bones: -are they really rib fragments? -is it possible to attribute these to Einiosaurus? They are said to be from the Two Medicine Formation, Montana.
  13. Bones 2

  14. Could this be a actual Partial rib bone from a monosaurus? Was found in Lowndes County Alabama
  15. Hi all, I had a fairly productive first outing to Westmoreland State Park but I have no idea what any of the fossils I found are. I am happy to provide close-ups of any of the individual fossils, and in addition to the photos here, I posted some to imgur to get around the size restriction here. https://imgur.com/gallery/2uIedQS Thanks for your help!
  16. Confused

    Digging through some bags of bones, looking for something to work on during the virus crisis. Glued the pieces I and collected and this is what I have. I believe this was collected in Wyoming, near Newcastle. What is it? I think it is Theropod, possibly a partial pubis bone. 10.5inches long, 1.5 inch flat bottom, approx 1 inch depth large marrow pores.
  17. Unknown Acquisition

    I bought a small fossil collection that contained several Erismatopterus levatus and it also contained several unidentifiable and unlabeled items, in particular this piece. It reminds me almost of a placoderm skull plate, but I honestly don't have any idea. There's area of denticles on the side of the fossil.
  18. Hey all, Was wondering if this looks like a Baryonyx bone. No measurements given. Seller says it's from HASTINGS SUB GROUP WEALDEN SUPERGROUP WEALDEN OF SUSSEX
  19. Hi all, I have another fossil here for your inspection please. It seems to be a Spinosaurid partial neural spine but I cannot be sure. @Troodon @LordTrilobite
  20. Hi all, I acquired a partial Spinosauridae caudal spine recently from the Kem Kem Beds. However, I was told that this is a dinosauria indet. rib. The digger who provided me the fossil is experienced and trustworthy. Still, I would like to hear your thoughts on this fossil. Thank you. EDIT: Two others suggested that this is part of a scapula
  21. Kem Kem ribs ID

    Just got some small rib sections and another bone, the ribs don't look like crocodile, I know it can be difficult to give an I'd on parts of bone but was wondering if it could be mosasaur or maybe land based? Bones are from the Kem Kem beds
  22. Ichthyosaur rib part

    From the album Holzmaden

    A small Ichthyosaur rib part from the lower Jurassic of the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden.
  23. large bone

    found in filey north yorkshire
  24. Hello all this is my first post. I recently came into possession of what I believe to be a Allosaurus rib fossil. Unfortunately the specimen snapped in a few places during transit. This dose however give me the opportunity to post pictures of the broken sections. Not exactly what I was expecting to see, but then again this is my first large fossil so I don't really know what I was expecting to see. some information I was provided from the previous owner: '"last 6 inches of the distal end, is restorated. The rest of the rib was found largely intact. Found on private land in the Morrison Formation" Any information that can be provided to me would be a great help. Debbie
  25. Unusual ribs

    Hoping to get some good input on these. I found several of these rib bones together in densely packed sand/Ash material. I’ve never seen this type of consistency in any other type of fossil. It’s almost like they turned into Sandstone material. Any idea what causes this or what type of animal they are from?
