  1. Another UK sauropod vert?

    Hello, I'm more hopeful about this one. It looks different than the other verts that are for sale which are usually misidentified plesiosaur/pliosaur verts. Plus, while it has a couple of holes at the bottom--they are nowhere near as distinct as others. It is from Abingdon, Kimmeridge Clay. Dimensions are 6.5 x 5 x 7 Now, I haven't seen Sauropod verts listed for sale which are this shape--which half makes me think it's something else entirely. But, then again, most sauropod verts from the UK are misidentified so I can't really judge with others listed for sale. Anyway, thanks for taking a look.
  2. A pair of sauropod verts

    Hello, I am interested in these, sold as Cetiosaur. From Abingdon. Sauropod fossils are found there, but a lot sold are plesiosaur/pliosaur verts that are misidentified. So if anyone could take a look and give your thoughts on these, that would be great. The centrum shape doesn't resemble the shape of the sauropod vert I have from that fromation, but it could easily be from a different species or something. Anyone, two verts. 1st one -- 7.5cm by 3.5 cm.
  3. Hello everybody. I get some interesting Stuff from El Mers (Boulmane) and Ksar Metlili (Talsint) I am looking for some information and publicacions about these 2 formation... I only find few old publications... I hope you can help me... Thank you so much!
  4. Embryo Fossil

    Greetings Fossil Forum members..I am looking for a positive Identification on this specimen, which was found on private property in New Mexico, near the town of Edgewood..Appears to be cast/mold of the contents inside an embryonic egg...I have circled in red highlighter what I believe to be the enlongated, oversized head of this unidentified creature, thought (by me) to be the unborn offspring of an unidentified type of smaller sized plant eating dinosaur, or Sauropod...
  5. Hi all, I have 3 teeth here I need help with The first is a Stegosaurus tooth: It comes from Wyoming, USA. Morrison Formation. It looks like a Stego tooth to me in terms of size and morphology, based off this thread > --- Next, a supposed Barosaurus tooth: It comes from Sundance, Wyoming. Morrison Formation. I cannot find any good literature on Barosaurus teeth. This tooth doesn't seem to have the spade-like shape I usually associate with Camarasaurus teeth. --- Lastly, there is a sauropod tooth from the Cloverly Formation: It comes from Montana, USA. Cloverly Formation. I presume it is a Titanosauriform indet. based off these two papers: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/254315252_The_Beginning_of_the_Sauropod_Dinosaur_Hiatus_in_North_America_Insights_from_the_Lower_Cretaceous_Cloverly_Formation_of_Wyoming https://www.researchgate.net/publication/236886285_Vertebrate_Paleontology_of_the_Cloverly_Formation_Lower_Cretaceous_I_Faunal_Composition_Biogeographic_Relationships_and_Sampling Can I have your thoughts on these 3 teeth? Thank you. - Andy
  6. Hello, I'm interested in getting one, maybe both of these. Sold as Borthriospondylus, but, unless I'm misaken, that's a name attached to fossils to sell them and a better labelling is Eusauropoda. Anyway, unfortunately, there is no formation, I emailed seller and he doesn't know. But both teeth are from Madagascar, 164 million years old. I was wondering, are they both from the same species? While they both look similar and have a similar shape around the base, tooth number 1 has a flatter top--does this mean they're from two different species, or does it just have more feeding wear than the others. Incidentally, tooth number 1 I found has been posted here before a couple of years ago--ID'd as Eusauropoda. Tooth 1 - 15mm. Tooth 2 - 17 mm Many thanks.
  7. Diplodocus vs Camarasaurus

    I can buy only one Sauropod tooth. I am 50/50 for Diplodocus or Camarasaurus. I love both. I don't know what tooth i want more. What is your favorite one?
  8. Sauropod vertebra?

    Any thoughts on this? Being sold as sauropod cetiosaurus vertebra from Kimmeridge Clay. 11cm x 12 x 5.5 The hole at the bottom, seller says is predation from a scavenger -- size and shape matching croc or pliosaur. I'm suspecting plesiosaur, looking at a drawing of cetiosaur verts I found online. This one seems too rounded. Any thoughts, much appreciated. Attached the drawing below too.
  9. Camarasaurus teeth

    I know that there are three species of Camarasaurus on the Morrison Formation, but the most sellers sell teeth as Camarasaurus grandis and not Camarasaurus sp. This is incorrect or the sellers and the paleontologist know the ID of the teeth?
  10. Titanosaur tooth ?

    Hello all . Need some help on ID ! i came across this tooth label as Titanosaur tooth from Kem Kem , Morocco seller claim that this tooth have a few repair . pls let me know what you guy think about this tooth many thank you . Guns
  11. Madagascar Eusauropoda ?

    One of a couple of teeth I'm interested in--figure it's time to add some more exotic teeth to my collection. This caught my eye, Eusauropoda tooth from Madagascar. 0.56 inches, from the Isalo Formation, Majunga, Madagascar. If it's as described, that would be great. Thanks very much. Edit: meant to post in id. Not is it real
  12. Turiasaurus riodevensis tooth?

    Hi again! I see this tooth and I will try to get it. The owner told me that It’s from Riodeva, Teruel (Spain) I read some articles and the id seems correct... What do you think? I read too that spanish fossils are forbidden, Can I have any problem? Thanks!
  13. Hi, Saw this fossil for sale and the seller believes it might be a partial vertebra from a Sauropod. It is from the Kem Kem in Morocco and I am not sure if there are enough diagnostic features to be sure, anyone have an idea as to what it might be?. It is 22cm in length. Thanks.
  14. Is this a Fossil or am I crazy?

    While digging holes for sage bushes at my mother's house in Granbury, we found this. Both pieces appear to fit together. Is it a fossil? If so, of what? Should we dig some more? Or am I totally wrong? I have additional photos. Thank you.
  15. I’ve been slowly working on improving our Jurassic dinosaur fossil collection. One of the major goals has been expanding beyond North America and the Morrison Formation. We recently picked up two fossils that accomplish that goal. Up first we we have a pretty nice sauropod tooth from Madagascar. This is from what is usually referred to as the Isalo III Formation. I believe the Sakahara formation would be the more accurate name given this comes from Andronomamy. This tooth is kind of interesting. It matches the Eusauropoda morphology of a paper published on sauropod teeth from Madagascar. I researched this a bit further to see if I could maybe get it to a family level. This tooth seemed be close to the morphology of the French sauropod Vouivria, which is a basal Brachiosaurid. Based on what I read, Vouivria was described from material that had been assigned to Lapparentosaurus which is what I thought this tooth might be except it doesn’t match the morphology of the Brachiosaurid/Titanosauriformes teeth in the paper. After my brain imploded from trying to figure this out, I decided to just say we have a nice Eusauropoda tooth from Madagascar lol
  16. Sauropod jaw section?

    Being sold as sauropod camarasaur jaw section. From Muffat County, Colorado. 48 x 51mm. Thanks for the help
  17. Kem Kem Sauropod vert

    Hello, thoughts on this vert? It looks repaired (I ask seller to clarify repairs). But is it Sauropod? Cervical vert. 7cm by 9cm by 7cm. Which to me seems very small for a sauropod. Thanks
  18. Sauropod claw?

    Labelled as unidentified dinosaur claw, most likely a sauropod. Mentioned it's a baby claw. To me it looks like some sauropod claws I see for sale, just smaller--but it could easily be a turtle spur? 3/4" long. From Tegana Formation, Kem Kem Basin. Any help would be great.
  19. Sauropod verts

    Labelled as sauropod. Photo 1 and 2 is 5 inch by 3.5 inch Photo 3 and 4 is 12 cm by 13.5 cm x 4.9 cm Both are from Oxfordshire. So I'm guessing if they are sauropod, they are probably cetiosaurus. Thanks very much
  20. Possible sauropod femur upper end

    I bought this agatized dinosaur fossil at a rock shop in Indianapolis about 4 years ago. It is agatized and it was at risk of being bought and sliced up. I am glad I rescued it. It has an identifiable shape. The attribution was only that it came from the Western United States and that it was a plant eater. It is probably from an old collection. It weighs over 90 lbs. It is wrapped up at the present time in tarp material because I moved in 2018 and I have not unwrapped it yet. I am thinking possible sauropod femur upper end. I can get more pictures and measurements when I unpack it.

  21. Hi, This is listed as a large sauropod claw (16cm in length) from Madagascar attributed to the Sauropod Archaeodontosaurus descouensis. I wanted to ask does it look alright? it states that there is no restoration to the fossil. Thanks in advance!
  22. Good afternoon folks. I have what was identified as a Sauropod coprolite (1 of 5) from the Morrison Formation, Henry Mountains, Wayne County, Hanksville, Utah. Jurassic period (Per the seller's description). I purchased this back in 2000 and am requesting a verification so I can ensure my ID card is correct. All help is appreciated. Measurements are 8.5Cm W, 6.0Cm H, 4.5Cm D.
  23. Partial Sauropod neural process?

    Hi, I was wondering if the id on this piece can be confirmed. It is said to be the top end of the neural process of a Sauropod vertebra. The fossil is quite heavy and large at 24cm and it comes from the Wessex Formation in the Isle of Wight. Thanks in advance!
  24. I've really started to look for fossils of interest to me (I'm a newbie to it, and have had fun researching). Dino eggs make me the most nervous, after reading (including on this site) about all the fakes --- even those sold at "reputable" auctions. I'm especially interested in Sauropods and came across these. Details: "Hypselosaurus priscus", Maastrichtian, Late Cretaceous, discovered in France. 1. I've been comparing to images on this site that users have noted are real --- and I feel those characteristics and things to look for align with these. But am I missing anything? 2. These are hatched, correct? This was my assumption based on unhatched examples (and the price!), but the auction language made it unclear. Thanks for your insights --- I've had fun lurking the site and learning as a non-member for quite a while.
  25. Help: Kem Kem Sauropod Tooth ID

    Hi all, I was wondering if I could get an ID for this tooth. I think it is Rebbachisauruid. It is 4.9 cm long and from the Kem Kem beds of Morocco. Thanks for any help.
