  1. Prepped Oreodont skull

    Here is an Oreodont skull I prepped a few years ago. I did have to glue some of the larger rear skull pieces together, but otherwise there are no restorations. Just sharing with the group.
  2. I got this from a friend about 2 months back. Lately the black coating on it has been flaking off. I am not sure what it is and was curious if I should remove it or do I need to stabilize it with something?
  3. Oligocene insectivore

    The garage was a bit chilly to work in today so I decide to work in the office at my scope a bit instead. I'd like to be able to identify this piece (Peratherium, Centetodon?) but I'm struggling with all the post cranial elements covering the teeth. Any suggestions from the perpetrator community for how to proceed?
  4. Hello! I see this psittacosaurus skull on internet. It seems real? Is small the sizes are 6.5 5,3 4,1 cm Thank you so much.
  5. Possible fish skull

    Hello again. I found this strange bone on the beach in abu dhabi ruwais. I am not sure if it is a fossil, it is ver porous. It is about 1.5cm thick The beach was man made, so I am not sure exactly where this might of came from.
  6. Bones Central Texas

    I found a deer skull in an area of Central Texas where Native Americans lived for over 12,000 years. The skull was found half way up a tree. Near by were other weathered bones, mainly of deer. Additonally I found an unusal orbital socket, I guess that is the term. The eye socket is the same height as that of the deer, but much more elongated and it looks like the nose would have been very near the eyes, like a cat. I am posting a picture of the bones in hopes that someone has knowledge about both living and extinct Texas wildlife. I can post different angles, if needed. Thanks for looking and any help you can provide!
  7. Skull id

    Found this skull on the Arkansas river in Wichita. Anyone have an idea on if this is domestic dog or wolf? We can and do find skulls and bones going back to the ice age on the river so want to finally know what I have
  8. Skull Found on Atlantic Shoreline

    Can anyone identify this what type of marine life this skull is part of? I found it today along the East Coast of United States - Atlantic Ocean Spoon in photo for scale. The strange up raised markings on top are perplexing. Type of Eel perhaps? It's wet from me rinsing it in sink. Thank you!
  9. I found this lovely skull recently in Florida's Peace River. It was near a spot of fresh erosion from a high bank that contains a thin gravely-shelly layer running through Holocene-Pleistocene overburden. You could see the fossils weathering out of the bank and falling into the water below. A gravel bar had accumulated near the bank in the river and it was littered with fossils. I did not see any evidence of Miocene fauna, like the usual dugong ribs or megalodon teeth. Sitting in plain sight, upside-down (teeth up) in barely 4-6 inches of water was this skull. It is fossilized. Dense with a dark patina. To my delight, it had a canine intact and it is a beautiful color of blue that is similar to what you see in some Bone Valley fossils (and shark teeth) that have been buried in the right localized conditions. All of the remaining molars have some of the same blue coloration. So, I am thinking this is not recent and may be something interesting (hopefully)? It's quite small, as you can see in the photos. Is it a small critter, or a juvenile-version of a larger species? I would love it to be something like a juvenile dire wolf pup, instead of something less sexy like an ancient opossum. Any guesses on what this could be?
  10. Hyracodon Skull

    Good evening I have a Hyracodon skull. Nearly complete, but does have some putty work done to the upper. Excellent teeth. I have two of these and wouldnt mind losing one. I just wanted to see what any of you had to trade of equal value. Not really looking for anything in particualar. Show me what you are willing to trade!
  11. T Rex bite article

    An article discussing research on T Rex skull and jaw anatomy and implications for "bite." https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2019/09/t-rex-bite-could-have-crushed-a-car-thanks-to-its-stiff-skull/?cmpid=org=ngp::mc=crm-email::src=ngp::cmp=editorial::add=Science_20191002&rid=68DAEDD7EC7A307D1290E5C3629C1CCF
  12. What’s this peculiar skull-thingy?

    So, I found this in an area of TN where several marine fossils have turned up (various Gastropoda, trilobites, and more), but this was unearthed at the site of some serious deep water erosion and a small land slide at the banks of a lake. It looks to me like a skull of some sort, where the animal in question perhaps keeled over and laid for a looong time on its right side, hence the “squashing” of that surface. Apart from the somewhat mashed right side, and some chipping to the snout, it’s otherwise perfectly symmetrical.

    Here are some of my Bull Canyon Formation fossils from New Mexico.

  15. 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.
  16. Good day everyone, I'm looking into these two partial mammal skulls: An oreodont Merycoidodon and a Camel Poebrotherium. I'd like some help to find out if these are all real or have been partially fabricated, enhanced, composited, total fakes. Photos 1-4: Merycoidodon culbertsoni Oligocene Nebraska Photos 5-8: Camel Poebrotherium labiatum Brule Formation Oligocene-Whiteriverian Converse County, Wyoming
  17. Mosasaur skull cast

    Hello evereybody, I dont know if this is the right place to post this but I would be interested to learn more about mosasaur skull three-dimensional anatomy. Do someone know where it is possible to buy accurate mosasaur's skull cast? I am looking for something more educational than decorative and ideally not too big. I know that there are plenty of interesting stuffs on the web but from my experience in human medecine nothing is as good as a three-dimentional model to understand complex anatomical structure like the skull. Thanks for helping!
  18. I found this on the Yellowstone River after high water, it had washed onto an island on the river and gotten caught in an old tree that was also beached on the island. It is 22" from tip to tip and heavier than I would have expected as if it has begun mineralization. The base of the horn cones are 3 1/8" at their largest dimension. Could this be a Bison Antiquus? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
  19. Hello is this psittacosaurus skull is real and any restoration and repair done to it ?

  21. Help to Id this Florida Find

    Not sure what this find is but possibly looks like a little skull of some kind??
  22. Possible head of some kind?

    Hi guys so I was at walton on the naze again looking through some london clay etc. Random dude I was chatting with was like this is a piece of coprolite and again after I've been home a few days dryed everything out and looked close. I'm seeing some kind of animal head with a neck at the back and a broken tooth inside the jaw although the jaw is slightly crushed. Either that or it's my imagination curious what you guys think and possibly help ID it if an animal. 1st picture looks like some kind of dog from this angle??
  23. Hi All, I came across this Merycoidodon Oreodont Skull and was curious as to the actual level of restoration that's been done. As far as I can tell the grey putty filling is where work has been done to stabilize the skull, but bones haven't been recreated. Am I missing anything else? Thanks! -Barret
  24. Skull, Teeth, Jawbone, etc.

    Hello everyone and thanks in advance for any help or ideas. Earlier this summer my friend moved to South Dakota and purchased a home. A few days ago he was cleaning out a shed on the property and found a cardboard box filled with the fossils seen below. It is unknown if the prior owner had found these on the property or if they had been purchased elsewhere. So unfortunately he has no idea where or when these were originally found. Neither of us have much experience in this but obviously fossils such as these catch your attention! If anyone wants or needs additional pictures let me know and I will see if he can send more. I have included mostly pictures of the skull and teeth as I figured they would likely be most helpful for identification. It is assumed all these pieces belong together but it is possible it is just a random collection. The pictures in order are: skull facing front, skull bottom, skull side (close up), three different angles of the jaw/teeth, and then one pic of all the pieces together with a ruler to get a ballpark idea of sizing. Hope you guys enjoy the pics and hopefully someone out there has some guesses. Thanks!
  25. What do you think it is?

    Came across this while my son and I were metal detecting. I saw some teeth in a big clump of dirt and sand so we took it home and I let it sit in water about 7 minutes and realized it was a fossil. Could anyone give me an idea what it is?
