  1. Scute? Texas

    From North of San Antonio in Cretaceous Zone. Could be a leverite but this one looked a bit weird. Pretty small.
  2. Just found this very small, what looks to me like a dermal plate or scute. It is about 5/8 inches long and 3/8 inches wide. Width could have been reduced by chipping. It came from a Florida beach near Jensen Florida. Looks to me something like a gator scute, but not exactly. If gator, it must have been a baby, but I'm thinking maybe something else. Thanks much.
  3. McFaddin Beach: Turtle, bone? Or ?

    Hi everyone! We made a trip to McFaddin Beach a few months ago (mishmash of Pliestocene materials wash up), and found these two items, which _at first_ we thought were 1. A bone (left) and 2. a turtle scute (right), all photos. BUT - the item on the left, the bone, has kind of a nice finish, with small bubbles, on the inside (lower left photo). ?? And the item on the right, the scute, has a very interesting texture on the two flat faces. Could it still be turtle? Or could it be something else? Your input appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  4. Croc scute?

    Hey all, I found this awhile ago at ramenessin brook and was wondering what you guys thought, I posted it in a trip report thread awhile ago, but I thought more people would chime in if it got its own thread! TIA, if you need more pics or details let me know!
  5. Scute or Spur ??

    New member. I am wondering what kind of fossil this is. The fossil is almost exactly 1 inch (2.54 cm) wide and the same long and one half inch high. It came from a beach near Jensen Beach.
  6. Venice Florida Tortoise Advice

    Hello, I live in between Venice and North Port, FL, close to the Myakka. I have been finding tortoise fossils/clasts in my neighborhood. Most are in moist clay within a foot from surface. This location is SW of the Peace River Formation. I find deer antler, Meg teeth, and manatee ribs fully fossilized here also. This is Pleistocene area. I have not found fully fossilized tortoise. Mine are not totally solidified. I find many scutes/ spurs along with the clasts that are hardened. Looking for advice. Photos of one sample attached. Regards, Michael

  8. Coprolite, concretion, or scute?

    Hi there! These two rocks were found in the Aguja Formation. Wondering if they could be coprolite, concretions, some kind of scutes (unlikely), or meteorites? Material from the Aguja formation is very foreign to me, so I’m at a loss! They are rounded at the top and flatter at the bottom. Found amongst very large dinosaur bones. Thanks very much! Lauren
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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?
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
  24. 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
