  2. Shale fossils, ventura CA

    Hello, I found these shale fossils on sulpher mountain hiking trail in Ventura california. I think one might be a fish scale and I have no idea of what the other could be. Any ideas? Thanks for looking
  3. How To Weigh a Dinosaur

    The two main methods of estimating dinosaur weight actually agree more than they disagree. Estimates of dino weight from 1905 to now were compared and analyzed. https://phys.org/news/2020-08-dinosaur.html
  4. Are these rhizodont fish parts?

    Hello everyone. Few weeks ago I was in Klaipeda district Western Lithuania and found these two fish fossils- scale is about 3 cm diameter, jaw fragment is 1.6 cm length. I think these fossils belong to some species of rhizodont fish, but i am not sure if the species would be more Late Devonian or Carboniferous in age. Please help me to identify the genera of these remains if it is possible, I need to know what the precise age this freshwater limestone boulder belongs to. Best Regards Domas
  5. I need help with a scale like fossil!

    Hello! I recently went to Grand Ledge, Michigan. This area is part of the Carboniferous, and more specifically the Pennsylvanian period. I found this fossil that appears to be scales. It’s not an imprint either, the scales are elevated. In the surrounding rock there are cordiate fossils and some kind of clam, I found ferns in the area as well. I believe that it was a swamp land way back when these were all alive. An ID on what kind of plant or maybe even fish scales would be awesome! Thank you!
  6. Scale? Shell? Scute?

    Found in Venice FL, in a mixed shell andarine life pile. Not sure what it is, maybe someone does. Thanks in advance
  7. Lepisosteidae scale in coprolite

    From the album Coprolites

  8. Lepisosteidae scale in coprolite

    From the album Coprolites

  9. Going through last year's finds I found a few things that I don't recognize. All are from Pennsylvanian marine limestone. The first few all appear to be fish material of some kind. I find plenty of chondrichthyan teeth, but none of these look like any teeth I've seen, although they may be partials. Possibly some kind of bony fish scale? All images were taken under a microscope, no scale cube but they all are about 1/2" at the widest point. #1) #2)
  10. Hello, I have a Phareodus Fossil. Its one foot long. I found it on August 12th of this year in Kemmerer, Wyoming. Today, I noticed something I would like some input on. I took a look at it and I noticed what looks like a pile of scales in the belly of the Phareodus. I am attaching a picture of both the full fossil and the area I am referring to. (I just noticed a Knightia is in the fossil also) I know Phareodus were carnivorous, and have big teeth, but what do you guys think? Are these scales in the stomach? Its last meal? Jared
  11. Fishes scale (Ukraine) ?

    Hello! Could it be scale? Western Ukraine, Lviv region. Thanks in advance!
  12. I find these items quite regularly in the Cookiecutter Creek micro-matrix. Mostly, these are smaller or partial but this one with a length of 11 mm turned up yesterday and I figured it would be a good specimen to try to use for an identification. I say tooth-like because of the shiny black enamel-like surface covering 3/4 of the item. The shape of these items is pretty consistent with the "topside" being shiny, convex and mostly smooth except for apparent "growth rings" and the "underside" of the item showing more texture on the enameled surface and a concavity on the non-black end. Is this oddity at all familiar? It seems like I should be able to get a grasp on this but I'm sure I'm misidentifying something like a scale or dermal element as a tooth. I'm certain that it will be blindingly obvious in retrospect but I'm hopelessly fogged at the moment. Cheers. -Ken
  13. Unidentified fish scale from Kem Kem

    Hello, On the internet I found and bought this fossil fish scale from the Kem Kem formation. Unfortunately, I do not know which fish she comes from, as she looks different than any other fish scales from Kem Kem that I know. A box on the sheet is 5x5mm, the scale is ca. 1,7cm long. I hope you can help me with that. Thank you in advance, Jesco
  14. Fish scale, vertebrae, squilla scale, some kind of plants Location: Pohang, south Korea Formation: Duho formation Age: middle miocene
  15. So this material is from the Clayton formation in Arkansas. It is Paleocene in age. We are finding a lot of these flat pieces which I at first thought might be crab shells but now I think they must be scales from armored fish. Sometimes they are very thin and small - these examples are larger ones. If I am correct does anyone know if we can tell which fish they are from? (tape measure in view is in mm) The lone piece is from the same matrix as the others. After cleaning it up I would have guessed it was just a larger piece of armor but while I was removing it both ends broke off and it has some internal structures too. Also it seems to have tunnels that run through it that make me think of passages for nerves or blood vessels (bone? - it sure doesn't seem like it because it seems to have a shell). Here are pictures of its external and internal structures. The tube-like piece connects with one of the holes in the outside shell. I have taken pieces of all 4 exposed internal surfaces. It is not quite symmetrical which makes me think it isn't a crab . . . The fourth pic where a lot of the white matrix is visible is the back. I have been reluctant to clean it up since it is a bit fragile. Note: pics 5 & 6 (with the tunnel-like structure) have a bit of rubber cement on the surfaces - I had to retake the pics and had already begun to glue them back together
  16. Coprolite Hardness

    I was recently given some coprolite to polish for a friend. I was wondering if anyone knows what the general hardness would be as it relates to Mohs scale. Thank you
  17. Printable Photographic Scale?

    Hello, I was wondering, before using a generic one found online, if any forum member designed a printable photografic scale on his own and would like to share it. Thanks, hopefully this is the right section to ask this.
  18. Found on beach...Scales? Shell?

    I found these on the beach in Dunedin, FL. They are thin and flaky and fragile. They have a raised ridge on one edge. 1”-2” long (25-50 mm). They don’t seem to be fossilized but I am so curious as to what they are. My initial thought was maybe a type of shell or part of a fish? I really don’t know...
  19. I found this large fish scale from the late Carboniferous. When i originally found this i thought it was a shark crush tooth, but after more and more prep it turned out to be a large fish scale that i can not identify. Any help or direction is much appreciated. The scale is about 21mm x 24mm As found with a bit of prep. After prep under 10x stereoscope
  20. Rhabdoderma Scale ID

    I have a fish scale from the Pennine Middle Coal Measures Formation from North Cumbria (Cumberland Coalfield), UK. Found in the local stream, where there have only ever been 4 fish found, I have found all of them- Rhabdoderma, Rhizodopsis, Megalichthys & Platysomus. Attached is a photo of a scale; that I think is from Rhabdoderma. (The width of the scale is around 5mm [width as in from across from bottom left to top right of scale] Does anyone have any idea about taking this identification further- perhaps down to a species level? Thanks, Tom
  21. DPP Theropods by size

    Found this rather interesting diagram in the Currie & Longrich (2009) paper describing Hesperonychus. The diagram shows outlines of several carnivorous theropods from the Dinosaur Provincial Park assemblage, to illustrate the size & morphological range. I thought some people might like to see this @Troodon @Canadawest @Paleoworld-101
  22. Everyone please use an internationally recognised scale in your images. Coins aren’t good enough. How big is s rupee, or a farthing? I dunno. Of course a marmite jar is the same size worldwide Vegimite is NOT internationally recognised. I hope you’re taking notes @Jesuslover340
  23. Skin Scale of Leaf?

    This amber came in a lot from Latvia. I noticed two pieces of something, fairly large in a 1.5cm x 0.5 cm piece of amber. My pics are a bit out of focus but you can see a pigment pattern of something like skin, scale or perhaps it is a leaf with a brown/pink and black pattern on it. I think it is the skin or scale of some type of creature. What do you think? Can anyone help? Jimmy
  24. Lost cant ID this one
