  1. I recovered these osteoderm fossils from a small gravel mining prospect off the Nueces River in Live Oak county, Texas about 50 miles from Corpus Christi and the Gulf of Mexico. Deweyville Formation fluviatile terrace deposits of Pleistocene to Holocene age. I am thinking giant armadillo, Holmesina, and some kind of crocodile. Thanks for your information, I found these over a decade ago.
  2. North Carolina Puzzler

    Never seen one like this before, and after scouring my books I've come up with a blank for ID. Maybe a fish crushing tooth, or a plate, or even some loose teeth fused together? Possibly some kind of scute?? But from what, or am I way off base? What do ya' think? Collected from an Early Pleistocene, Waccamaw formation site, Columbus Co, Southeastern North Carolina. The site is primarily a shell bed, with some fish bits, and an occasional small shark tooth. Scale is 1mm.
  3. Lance Form Find

    Going through finds that haven’t been ID-ed yet from a trip to the Lance Formation. The find looks scute like, but I’m not an expert. It appears this maybe ID-able by its features. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
  4. Hi there Amateur Dinobot again, with the self isolation, I had some time to look back at a couple of my purchases. They were bought a couple years ago on a popular auction site. The sellers did not have a lot of reviews so it felt like a bit of a gamble. The first on I was told was a deltadromeus partial jaw and was found in Norther Africa in 2015. The other I was told was an Ankylosaurus scute. I dont recall if the seller provided any further detail but he is no longer selling items. Thanks for the input! Wasnt sure if they were identified correctly or not deltadromeus deltadrom
  5. 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
  6. Scute? Shell?

    I found this in a mixed pile of shell and random marine fossils in Venice, FL. I thought it was a turtle shell when I originally grabbed it, but cleaned it off and noticed the shiny mystery extruding from the top. I'm not certain what it is, so I leave up to you. Thanks in advance
  7. Scute?

    Hello everyone, Here is a fossil I found earlier which I think is a scute. Am I right? If so, what did it belong to? It was found in the forest marble formation of Dorset, England and is bathonian, Jurassic in age. It measures 2 by 1 cm. in the last photo, it is the bottom right. Also does anyone know what the fish tooth belonged to. (Middle bottom). thanks in advance
  8. I found this oddball in the same spot where I found a broken armadillo/sloth tooth that I posted in another thread. (Peace River, Bone Valley, Florida, likely Pleistocene). I can't decide if this is a very worn and beat-up (and large) turtle scute, or a "chunkasaurus" bone fragment, or possibly a beat-up osteoderm from a giant armadillo or something else glyptodont-adjacent. Does anyone else think this looks like an osteoderm or is it just my eyes fooling me?
  9. Squished Glyptodont scute?

    I found this rock recently in an area where high mesas are eroding near the river. I know there was a lot of Pueblo activity and also likely pre-Pueblo. There is a lot of volcanic rock, but nothing that looks like this. The erosion is exposing tons of river rock of all sizes, that likely came from the north with glacier melt. This area is by the river, roughly halfway between mountains and volcanoes. The rock is smallish, palm-sized, and sort of a squished pyramid shape. It turns blackish when wet, but as it dries it becomes this grayish color. I have looked at it with a magnifier and don't see anything that looks like man made tooling marks, but do notice a lot of features that look like bone. If it is possible to say- it is neither light like pumice nor heavy like a dense rock. I have searched online and the closest thing I can find to it are some images of glyptodont scutes, only my rock is not flat or cookie-like. I am wondering if it could have come from an edge or near the tail of a glyptodont or similar creature. This is causing a lot of head scratching, so please, any ideas or suggestions of places to look or people to contact will be much appreciated. I hope these photos show enough to figure it out.
  10. Crocodile scute? And more

    Hello again. After I discovered a big fossilized bone on a hill close the Shipwerck beach in Ruwais, I decided to go searching in the same area for more fossils. I found all of these on relatively the same layer of the hill. I assume they are from the miocene. The first one looks like a crocodile scute. The second one looks like a shell from a tortoise. The third one I am not sure of. I would appreciate confirmation and a possible id. I know UAE fossils can be a bit tricky.
  11. Holmesina I hope

    After much research I feel fairly confident that this is a scute from Holmesina-septentrionalis. What do you think? Can I label it as such? Thanks for looking.
  12. This was found in Big Brook NJ. It looks most similar to this Thoracosaurus neocesariensis scute on: http://www.njfossils.net/crocodile.html Could it be? It is very light and shell-like. About 2cm x 2cm.
  13. Possibly a scute?

    I found this small flat, disk shaped fossil in some matrix from Richard Spur (the Dolese quarry) in Oklahoma, which is Permian material. It kind of looks like a small scute to me, but not real sure. It also does look somewhat like some Pennsylvanian echinoid plates I have found. Any thoughts. The hash marks are 1mm. Thanks.
  14. Post Oak Creek

    I hit my honey hole at Post Oak Creek Texas again. I found a few good Ptychodus teeth, another crustacean and my first giant armadillo scute. it was worth the 5 hr round trip.
  15. Peace river scute of some kind

    I found this yesterday in the Peace River and only really looked at it now, I think it’s an armadillo scute but I’m not %100 sure. Help is appreciated!
  16. Crocodile Scute

    I’ve wanted a croc scute for quite a while, reptile especially croc remains are rare on the yorkshire coast so i’m pleased to find one today. I found it wearing out of a slab, it’s a partial but not complaining! Possibly Steneosaurus

  18. Crocodile Osteoderm

    From the album Judith River fm. Fossil Finds

    This osteoderm may belong to Leidyosuchus.
  19. NJ Cretaceous Stream Oddity

    I have no idea what this can be, possibly from turtle? Any suggestions?
  20. Finally managed to get out for a few hours when I visited Florida earlier this month. Walked in to a Peace river tributary where I got to spend a few hours shifting gravel while keeping an eye on the local wildlife. Was interesting how different the finds were when compared to the previous site which was about 25 miles further north. Nothing overly special, but was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Found a lot of bone fragments this trip, but no dugong which surprised me after my first experience. There were also fewer shark teeth this time around. Not sure what the big bone chunk in the upper left is from as there is very little of the surface left, but the fragment is 4 x 5 x 2.5 inches
  21. judith river fossil, scute?

    A weird looking fossil I found last summer in the Judith River Formation.
  22. Colleagues, I was collecting on the shoreline of Purse park in Maryland, a beautiful site along the Potomac river. I'm hoping you can help me with your thoughts as to the identification of a few small fossils. The ruler is in centimeters. 1. The first photo appears to be a scute. Is this from a crocodile? 2-4. The next three photos are of a very small fossil which appears to be a double crowned tooth. The base is flat and the crowns are cuboid in shape and flat on top without any ridges. ideas? 5. The final photo is a tiny bone. I'm comfortable that it is fossilized and not modern. It appears to have the shaft of a long bone, or potentially a phalange, but the terminal surface is almost similar to that of an ear bone or the zygomatic arch of a bird skull. I'm a veterinary pathologist and I'm at a loss. I would welcome your guidance.
  23. I found a couple pieces of what I think to be Dinosaur Bones and possibly a scute from my Uncle's property a while back in Canon City, CO. Canon City is known for Late Jurassic dinosaurs. I'm definitely not an expert, but it looks like I possibly found an Ankylosaurus scute? Can someone tell me anything about these bones? One of the bones even looks like it has bite marks or claw marks. Not sure....I could be wrong. Any info would help, thanks!
  24. Ankylosaur or Nodosaur Scute ?

    One of my goals is to bring a very tactile element to our education programs. I think adding a piece of dino armor is going to be a real hit with the kids. I have been trying to brush up on ankylosaur and nodosaur scutes in preparation of getting one at some point in the near future. I am not to the level of being able to recognize them yet but I did see one in our price range. I am not sure about this one. The seller lists it as being from Hell Creek. It is 2.5"x1.5" and is 1/2 inch thick. Anybody have any thoughts about this one ?
  25. I found this worn bone fragment on Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. It's about 2 3/8" x 1 1/4". After looking at it, it has a home plate shape similar to armadillo and turtle scutes. It appears to have a plate on the front and back, possibly the plastron and carapace of a turtle? (I have 6 views)
