  1. Bone Identification - Botswana Skull

    Hi everyone, Can you help me identify what animal this may be? It was found in Botswana. It is a semi-arid climate. Any idea if it's carnivorous or not? Any clues are helpful! Thanks.
  2. Bones Found in Ocean Cave

    Hey guys, I've found some bones and want to see if anyone is able to identify them for me. So while snorkeling off the coast of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands I found a spine of some sort. It was resting inside the opening of a cave. The length of spine that was visible to me was about half a metre maybe just over half a metre long. Each single vertebrae was about 20cm wide. Please view the photo provided. (Sorry I'm having trouble uploading the photo, I'm gonna try again in the morning..) Any help or input is greatly appreciated thank you
  3. Neogene ungulates

    Hello again. I have been tinkering with 3d scans again. Using a camel skull and llama body from the idaho virtualization lab via sketchfab, Itried to recreate Syndyoceras, a protoceratid. I am quite happy with the skull and do actually have not much of an idea about the postcranial skeleton. At the moment its a flattened llama minus some neck. I think the feet should be four-toed, but I didn´t find good references for the size and shape. What do you think? Any suggestions to make it more accurate? I added tags for some other herbivore mammals I plan to build over time because I think I cannot add new tags once I started a topic. Thanks, J
  4. May I seek your view on the authenticity of the Psittachosaurus skeleton? It is from Beipiao of Liaoning.
  5. Hey everybody, My team writes math textbooks and we want to include dinosaurs in them. We're trying to find a document that states the amount of bones (approx.) in different kinds of dinosaurs. I would really appreciate your help! Thanks, Gonzalo from Uruguay
  6. Do you think this is a genuine skeleton of psittacosaurus?
  7. Hi, what do you think about this Chinese specimen of Psittacosaurus? Genuine?
  8. Petrified snake head eating lunch

    I found this today. Hard as a rock.
  9. Osteology of Ouranosaurus nigerensis

    This takes some time to download!!!!* 114 Mb,approximately Cite this as Bertozzo F, Dalla Vecchia FM, Fabbri M. (2017) The Venice specimen of Ouranosaurus nigeriensis (Dinosauria, Ornithopoda) PeerJ 5:e3403https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.3403 As Taquet didn't formally describe the species, this is a significant advance in our knowledge of the species. Note: This can be called a monograph due to its length. Audience: all dinosaur lovers, but please note that this IS a "technical" paper. Pretty good depiction of pelvic parts and manus. Cladogram warning! EDIT: I don't know my exact connection speed, but don't be surprised if it takes a couple of minutes.
  10. I don't normally post these, but this one is too good to be true. Listed on our favorite auction site as "Mini Dinosaur, One of a Kind, Nearly Complete, Prehistoric". And it only opens at $1000. OMG!
  11. Some paint added

    Aloha. here are two 3d printed models I showed before. The Turtle is selfmade, the Spino not so. I took the time to paint them and quite like the result. Pondered to give the Spino the reddish colour one often sees with fossils from kem kem, but decided rather to colour the "matrix", which is in fact a piece of treebark. Best regards, Jan

  13. Some marine non-whales

    Three models, three very different animals, three methods: Anomalocaris, sculpted in fimo according to fossil drawings, 6 cm long Hesperornis, digitally distorted from a recent bird skeleton and Tyrannosaurus skull, 3d printed, 9cm long. Hydrodamalis, skull digitally distorted from a dog skull, postcranial plywood and putty like my whales, 38 cm. Aloha J
  14. Plesiosaur upgraded

    Same Story again, looking whart i can make of a bought model that has been around for some time. Another marine tetrapod. To be perfectly clear, This is a commercially bought Model which I changed to my ideas.Like my marine sloth and most of my dino- and other saurian ,models, but not my whales. I ordered the model from geoworld because some of the line had been quite nice. When I first saw it I didn´t think I could make something for my collection out of it. Trying it anyway. Scaled size and approximate proportions of Futabasaurus, not reallyenough detail to tell. Aloha J
  15. Ahoi. Another marine tetrapod. To be perfectly clear, This is a commercially bought Model which I changed to my ideas.Like my marine sloth and most of my dino- and other saurian ,models, but not my whales. I ordered the model from geoworld because some of the line had been quite nice. When I first saw it I didn´t think I could make something for my collection out of it. Tried it anyway. Because of the size in my chosen scale of 1/20 I decided to model it on Platecarpus, although I don´t claim to be accurate to even genus level. It´s just the medium sized Mosasaur to go with my whales and other seacritters. The flippers may need further detailwork. But for now I am content with the result. The base is a recent tuna vert by the way. Aloha!
  16. Dinosaur Postures

    After the satisfying outcome of my sloth-experiment (changing geoworld megatherium to Thalassocnus) I took another look at some older dinosaur models. Sauropoda- Giraffatitan: "Edutoys Brachiosaurus", added teeth and one cervical vertebra to give him a more erect pose, Changed cervical ribs from medial "monorib". changed leg pose. Thyreophora- Stegosaurus: Glencoe models , changed tail and thagomizer to more modern pose Ceratopsia- Triceratops: Kaiyodo "Wild rush" gave him a treetrunk to look over. Ornithopoda- Parasaurolophus: Geoworld, drilled out intercostal plastik. painted it. Theropoda- Spinosaurus: had it 3d printed. I wonder if I should give it a swimming pose, what do you think?
  17. What is this?

    Can anyone ID this?
  18. I am looking for a detailed picture of a Mosasaur skeleton. Especially the tail area, I picked up a bunch of vertebrae and I believe they are from a Mosasaur from the Oakley Kansas area and want compare them and assemble them in order.
  19. my sloth- Thalassocnus

    As my whale family is nearly complete now I went looking for other marine tetrapods. (and big fish by the way). I had for some time included Thalassocnus, the unbelievable swimming sloth of Miocene Peru in my to do list. Really fourlegged tetrapods are quite a lot of work compared with the highly reduced whales, so I was glad when I realized that the Megaterium made by geoworld was more or less my scale when seen as a big Thalassocnus of 3.3 meters. It finally arrived the day before yesterday, and today I spent some hours making it look more seagoing. I lengthened the snout, smoothed the skull and jaw. sawed out the intercostal spaces and made the limbones less bulky. The spinal processes are pointing more backwards now. (or at least their edges are) I am positively surprised how well this cheap model turned out after only few hours of work. Aloha J
  20. Last week i was at the natural history museum in maastricht,netherlands,there was a fantastic mosasaurus' skeleton that impressed me

  22. Fossil Wood? Or something else?

    Hi all, I recently found this on a trip to the Jurassic Coast at Dorset and have been intrigued by this find, i'm not an expert on fossil identification and was wondering if there was anything significant about this fossil. it strikes me as being either fossilised wood or an infilled burrow of some kind, however the shine, shape and downward strikes are leaving me somewhat puzzled. i would be grateful for all your potential ideas as to what this could be.
  23. Found on Venice Beach FL

    This was found on Venice beach FL. I know it is not a fossil but curious as to what it was. Thank you
