  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. 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?
  4. That’s what I see but im not and expert(yet). Any info greatly appreciated thanks!
  5. So I'm trying to teach my kids patience and teach them how to prep a skull. So far so good
  6. I am interested in getting a woolly rhino skull. I found one but the colorations are slightly off since they are from two different animals. Is it difficult to have the colors match? Maybe with some type of staining that wouldn't be too hard and degrade/damage the actual bone? Or is whitening a better approach? Thank you
  7. Unknown Skull, Peace River, Florida

    This skull was found in Florida's Peace River (Bone Valley formation). Any idea what it could be?
  8. Mostly I'm just curious, I want to buy one one day but I dont know how to tell a fake form the real thing.. I thought it would look more like real bone but the main characteristics of real bone seem to be gone.. Restoration to lower jaw. From reading another thread here, I get the sense the "fakes" are REALLY REALLY good. If so is there a place to get one that is this good and doesn't cost as much (and is sold as a fake/reproduction)? Thank you
  9. SkulI2 I only know that it comes from Northeast Asia.

  11. How are fossil "preparations" done?

    I found that a sabertooth skull could be in "unprepared" form in some "matrix" rock? This seems to make it less valuable/cheaper. When it's pure bone, is this a pretty tedious process to clean up? Any videos that would be good to research? Thank you
  12. I was wondering if the saber tooth can be found in real bone or would it be only in rock ? It seems they existed 11,000 years ago so that means they could be real bone and not just rock? Thank you

  14. Obsidian alike skull?

    Hello there, since i dont know anything about fossils in general i'd like to ask for a first opinion, if the 'stone' i found could be some kind of fossil. the interesting fact about this is, that i'm 99% sure that this is some kind of biological mass turned into stone, because it fits every aspect a small jaw, including nerves, teeth and the bone. Im curious about the material (what it turned into) and how old it might be. Thank you
  15. Mawsonia skull parts

    Hey y'all, I have some part, probably, Mawsonia. I think the third thing in the top is an angular. The last thing, i think, is the top part of a skull but not from mawsonia but another fish like. Can someone tell me if I am looking in the right direction? Oh, the distance between the 4 linea is 1 cm each. Thank you
  16. After the Velociraptor skull, I finally finished another very long project: the baby T. rex skull designed by Inhuman Species, a 3D printed museum quality fossil replica of a 2-3 years old Tyrannosaurus rex. I really love this project and I made a video of the making from the 3D printing to the painting - I hope you like it. If you're wondering, I 3D printed the skull with the Alfawise U30 in PLA plastic; please watch the video and turn on subtitles to learn more about the tools and the making processes. If your're addicted or interested in 3D printing, you can't miss those topics:
  17. Hi! After a long hiatus from fossil collecting, I've finally decided to start again! While searching online, I found this amazing specimen on online listed as a Mosasaur skull- I'm sure anyone could debunk that in seconds. I'm almost certain that this is actually the skull of a crocodile, but I want to be sure before I go ahead and purchase it. I'm also unsure of the authenticity of this fossil- for the cheap price it is at currently, it is a complete steal. Any input is appreciated. -conleys
  18. Oreodont in situ - Nebraska Oligocene

  19. Is this a genuine Triceratops frill fragment? It is from Hell Creek, MT. The seller has other frill pieces that look similar, along with other dino teeth. From what I've read in other posts, it sounds like presence of blood grooves confirm identity as a triceratops frill. I don't see overt grooves on the planar surface but I see evidence of a thin spongy bone layer in the cross section suggesting to me it is still bone of some sort. Thanks for any assistance.
  20. Carnivorous mammal skull ID

    Could someone please help me identify this mammal skull? It has no associated geographic information.
  21. Hi all I purchased this cetacean skull fragment from a person who collected it in South Carolina many, many years ago. She said that she found it specifically in the ACE basin (Ashepoo, Combahee, Edisto Basin) while diving. I want to see if anyone can help me identify the species. I figure it's a cetacean skull, likely from an odontocete (?sperm whale or relative), and possibly consists of the premaxillary bones (with the large fossa for the melon) and others. I've included a number of photos. It measures 16 in long, 8 in wide, and 7 in tall and weighs over 13 lbs. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  22. Bison Skull Removed!

    I went back out to see my bison and with some help removed the skull! It is mostly intact too! A few pieces came apart but they are in good condition and can probably be restored. Thanks for looking!
  23. Turtle skull...?

    Hi all! I’ve been on this site before, asking about a vertebrae I found. I figured since y’all were so kind and welcoming maybe you would help me again! I was walking along the Myrtle Beach, SC this morning and saw this strange looking rock. Washed it off, and I’m positive it’s not just a rock. It looks like a turtle shell to me, but I’m not so sure. as for dimensions, I didn’t have a ruler on me, but an estimate is 3 inches long by an inch and a half at the thick end. I’ll post more photos if necessary, but it has a size limit for the post. Thanks again guys!
  24. What is this?

    I don't truly know where this was found but possibly north sulfer river, texas which is near here. Any help, guidance or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you
  25. Weird skull. Catfish?

    Finally made it out to the Peace River yesterday - the river is still a little high at most spots, but this winter has been too rainy to be picky about the gauge height. We found some small teeth and the usual minor things - broken mammoth tooth plates, antler, scutes, dugong rib, etc. We did find one oddball thing that I am fairly certain is a catfish skull. At first glance, laying in place, it looked like a snake skull, but on closer examination it appears to be a fish. I did some Google searches, but most of the catfish skulls I saw looked a bit different than this. Gar maybe? Eel? or ?
