  1. North Sulphur River - Weird Finds

    Some of my odder finds from North Sulphur River. The pyritized baculite and the preserved skin were both found in the Ladonia area. The baculite was initially powdery white on the exterior, with just a bit of metallic luster showering. A light scrub with a soft toothbrush revealed the rest. The skin appears reptilian, but I would love further insights.
  2. Skin? Hoof? Fat and Bone? Help..

    Ok, last one I promise. I have found a few pieces of these fossil bone fragments with an odd type of material attached to them. Rather odd texture, sort of bumpy. My first thought was some type of skin or hoof. I am puzzled. Any ideas? Found in Post oak creek, Grayson Co. Texas Lower Austin, upper Eagle Ford Gulf series.
  3. This specimen was said to be the skin plate/shield of a dinosaur. Locality is not known. Any idea what it is and if it is genuine fossil?

  5. Fossil or other

    Found in South Texas scrub brush, no idea but looks like scales or skin? Any help would be appreciated, Thanks.
  6. Fossil snake skin

    has there ever been any fossil shed snake skins?
  7. From the album Chondrichthyes

    This is a closeup image of the extensive soft tissue preserved in this specimen: skin. The skin of this animal can visually be seen as bumpy, with tiny pits. The pits are infact a highly advanced system of sensory pores. The pores could detect the slightest amount of disturbance in the water aiding the fish in hunting. This combined with the sensors on the rostrum made for a remarkable radar system designed to help the fish hunt for the smallest of invertebrates. The flamboyant pectoral fins are visible here aswell. Pretty cool.
  8. Plants or bones?

    Good day of collecting after the heavy rains on the east coast. Found these gems. See what you think. I would swear the one is a knee articulation and the other is skin. Probably just bark and a stick. What say you?
  9. Need help IDing MT fossils

    My family and I went fossil hunting in Gallatin County, MT a few weeks ago and came across these two fossils. They had come loose from a known Cretaceous shale area which regularly produces flora fossils of various quality. After a lot of comparisons online, we keep coming back to thinking this may be dino skin, however, this is not the area for common skin finds. (as far as I know!) Any insight or ideas is appreciated!! Thank you in advance for taking the time for a look.
  10. Hey guys was wondering if this is indeed a real Edmontosaurus/Hadrosaur skin impression. Seller says it was taken off of a 98% complete Edmonto excavated from the Hell Creek formation in South Dakota. Seller says it is 1.26 inches long. Please advise!
  11. Hey guys, my mom is finally starting to collect fossils with me! She picked these for her first purchases and wants to know if they are real before buying. Ammonite and edmontosaurus skin. Please advise!
  12. Hi there, I found the attached pictured fossil on Kimmeridge beach (Dorset, England) yesterday and would love to know what it is. I jokingly said it was dinosaur skin, although my dad retorted with "it's just a group of shells"... but either seems viable, or are we both wrong? I'm happy to provide further info if required.

  14. Skin?

    Found this when I was a kid in Iowa and just rediscovered it at my mothers house. Could it be a skin fossil?
  15. fossil skin

    Found this in my bucket along with my other teeth and bits and pieces. Appears to be skin (fish?) Can anyone tell me more? Flat with shiny black enamel diamond pattern.
  16. North Sulphur River ID

    Can anyone help me ID this find? I found it in the North Sulphur River in March of this year. I was guessing some sort of scute or plate? Maybe skin? Thanks!
  17. Can anyone identify this specimen?

    My son found this in a load of river rock from the Arkansas River in the Fort Smith area of Arkansas. Any help with ID would be greatly appreciated.
  18. Skin?

    Found this while walking around Kentucky lake in the land between the lakes. It looked strange like skin any info would be great. Thanks
  19. 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
  20. I am new to this so excuse my lack of terminology. I am looking for help identifying what this is. I picked it up next to a excavation sight that I have pulled hundreds of bones from. I have also found many primitive stone tools in the same location. I found what appeared to be a primitive tool. Upon closer examination I have discovered the top half covered in a leather like impression. I am not certain that this is a tool, or a bone but I am under the assumption that this is a impression of skin on this object. Any information will be helpful. I will be posting pictures of the amazing bones I have collected in hopes of identifying what dinosaur I have. This was collected in the north Saskatchewan river, just off of the shore.
  21. Skin Fossil

    Hello, I found this little fossil while walking along the Missouri River near St. Louis, MO. The fossil is two sided and the pattern is the same on both sides. The fossil is thin so I wasn't thinking a turtle shell. The last two pictures are a picture of the top and bottom. Could it be a skin fossil?
  22. I have been finding a lot of inclusions in a batch of coprolites from the Smoky Hill Chalk that assumed were bits of cartilage. One of the newer specimens from that batch had a piece of the material in question on the surface; enabling me to view it from the side. They look like little teeth, so now I don't know what I have. I have one other specimen that has a couple of the little tooth-like structures intact (one that I posted a while back that has possible Ptychodus tooth fragments). Is this skin with denticles, cartilage, a skull part or some sort of tooth plate? As always, any help is greatly appreciated.
  23. Skin?
