  1. My main concern, is it composite? What can you tell from these pictures?
  2. Hi! I was recently given a partial oreodont skull to prep & restore. The reconstruction went well, there was a very little excess rock to clean away & the pieces that I do have went together smoothly. BUT after it was assembled, certain areas of the skull began turning green. The skull fragments had been stored in a temperature & humidity controlled environment for a number of years before i began working on it. I'm wondering if a change in environments or being handled for the first time in a long time might have something to do with it? Has anyone experienced anything like this before? Much appreciated!!
  3. Borrowed this original museum replica of Australopithecus africanus otherwise known as the beautiful Mrs Ples. I'm planning on making a ceramic replica of this positive foam cast. The detail on this replica is pretty amazing, it has the bone texture, cracks and the reconstruction of the missing pieces of the skull. Looking forward to sharing this project with the forum.
  4. Here’s a fun one: Fair cast, slated for next display prep. Has no markings or provenance. Orbital looks too large for Amphicyon to me. Seems a bit short for Ursa. Zygomatic seems to heavy for P. leo spelaea. Suspect Felis atrox given the provenance of other casts in the collection here. However the teeth scream hyena to me... Going to be fun repairing the mold mismatch and heavy seam from casting...
  5. Skull

  6. Hearne Bay UK Skull Impression?.

    I found this on a stroll along the the beach in Hearne Bay, Kent, England. About 0.5 km East of the shark teeth area opposite the car park in Beltinge. I wasn’t even looking for fossils, just getting some exercise and saw this staring up at me. I’m not sure what I have found and wondered if anyone could help me I.D. my find. Thanks in advance. Wes.
  7. Skull I. D. Maryland

    Found this skull in a cliff in southern Maryland. Was dug out of grey clay in small cliff. Looks to be a Boar skull? Any ideas to the age?Miocene?
  8. Mysterious Skull from Liaoning

    Hi, this skull is from Liaoning, China in Yixian, early Cretaceous. Any idea what it is? Whether it is reptilian or mammalian species?
  9. Unprepared Oreodont skull?

  10. Unknown Cretaceous Bones

    This is my first posting so I hope I am doing this correctly. I have a few bones that I have found in the Morin Bridge area, east of Three Hills, Alberta. It is Cretaceous era. The first is a small bone that looks like part of a skull, possibly lizard. The second set is a tooth. My guess is a worn crocodile but they are rather rare in that area. It is flat like a ray tooth but I think that is due to wear. It also has a single root rather than a split one like on a ray. The third is a large bone that has an unusual shape so I am hoping it is something someone would recognize. Thanks for any assistance you can give me. I collected dino fossils since the mid sixties and have quite a few that I need some help with so will probably be posting more. Back in the 90's I took a chance and registered my collection with the Tyrrell Museum so I have a disposition certificate. Andy Neuman, (spelling) from the museum actually came up and looked at some of the fish jaws I had but they did sign over what I have, thank goodness. Here are the photos.
  11. ‘One of the Cutest Dinosaurs’ Ever Found https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/27/science/dinosaur-face-fossil.html?surface=home-discovery-vi-prg&fellback=false&req_id=40887484&algo=identity&imp_id=472217256&action=click&module=Science Technology&pgtype=Homepage
  12. Hello on my first fossil hunt today in UK coast I found the below shark tooth and this which looks like a fossil but I am not sure. any ideas if this is something? If you turn it lengthways I looks like a head with teeth and the type of shark tooth? Both were found with lots of fossilised tree
  13. Fossils ID requested in New Braunfels

    Fossil was found back yard. Approximately 3 miles from the Guadalupe river. The top of the skull, teeth, and what I believe to be part of the spinal column is rock. The rest of the fossil is encased in lime stone. Which I have slowly been scrapping away. Any information regard this fossils would be greatly appreciated.

  16. Iowa river finds

    To me this skull looks canine, but not quite sure. Please have a look and let me know what you think?
  17. Need help with ID please...

    I’m in the twilight zone apparently...I know how ridiculous this seems, but the only thing I can find that remotely seems to match this thing for size and shape is titanaboa. I’m open to other suggestions. This was in my back yard in Fort Worth, Texas...relatively shallow - about a foot to the top of it. We are in a rocky area and are within 30 ft of the highest elevation in the county, about 150 ft above the average for the city. I can’t find a tape measure to put next to it, but measured with my iPhone and it’s 29” long, 13” wide, and about 9” at the highest point. Seems to weigh in the 80-100 lb range. It looks like were other At least 2 other snakes on top of it that you can make out on the top left of it, but pieces of them have broken off as well as some of the main specimen. The underbelly is in excellent condition...it seems clearly show “snakeskin”. It wouldn’t let me attach more pictures, but on the back you can clearly see vertebrae at almost the center position and what seems to be some other type of nerve endings above that. There are literally hundreds, maybe thousands of pieces in the immediate area from ground level down ranging from quarter sized up to basketball sized with most between golf ball and baseball. I’ve been digging slowly for 3 days with no end in sight. Many of them are hard to specifically identify but seem to almost all meet criteria for fossil and not rock. Please help...
  18. small skull or jaw bone?

    Im having trouble ID'ing what I believe to be a small skull or jaw bone. it was found in a river bed known to be a popular fossil site. it's a about the size of a strawberry.
  19. Hello all! Any insight on this unidentified fossil, from Hell Creek Formation, Montana, would be deeply appreciated. It was labelled 'cheek bone' by the original seller, but this looks nothing like the cheek bones that I own. Please see images. [P.S., this is the 3rd of 5 specimens that I'm posting for ID today; I deeply appreciate any insight that you can provide]. With gratitude, Ryan
  20. From the Morocco phosphate beds. It is described as repaired in places. But, I dunno, it looks suspicious to me. The teeth look placed in. What are others thoughts? Maybe im wrong and its,real. Or real and not the best prep job? Any thoughts would be great.
  21. A pair of skull pieces? Kem kem

    First says, cranial bone with a clear forage (if that means anything?) Seller says probably theropod. 9.45 inch Second, says quadrate skull piece, probable theropod- likely spinosaur. 4.57 inch. Both Kem Kem. Not associated by the way. Anyone able to take a look?
  22. Only example of this king Penguin Skull from this location. Thought to be Pliocene period with everything else we are finding here. Progress is coming along nicely even with a bad break through the top of the cranium. More progress to follow and will have an international scale by next time (small town problems) any my more information on this or similar species would be much appreciated as I have limited knowledge on this particular Penguin. thanks community!
  23. Florida Pliocene Whale Skull

    My good friend Rob in Florida, not a Forum member, suggested that I post pics of the odontocete whale skull he found at an undisclosed location in the Pliocene of FL. He has sent pics to Smithsonian and they believe it to be Kogiopsis floridanum, a form of sperm whale described from a jaw section. He's enjoying the prep work, most of which can be accomplished without his scribe, and it appears that there are predation marks on what is left of the snout. Great find.
  24. What is it?

    I need help with an ID. I am very new to this hunting and could use any help. I got both of these from Big Brook in Colts Neck, New Jersey. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  25. T. rex bite marks on Hadrosaur skull?

    I recently got this rather nice Edmontosaurus annectens braincase from the Lance formation. But what's interesting, it has this large hole in the top of the skull. The seller has told me that the hole is not the result of any collecting or prep damage. The seller found the piece themselves and apparently it was found upside down in the field. I've bought from this seller before and they always have high quality fossils so I'm inclined to believe the seller when they say that this hole is old damage. So then my first thought would then be, could this be a big tooth mark? Although I don't want to jump to conclusions. It's a large gash on the top of the skull. On the top there are a few pieces of bone that kinda seem like they were pushed in and on the side there are some bone fragments that seem to be kinda push out. Something pushed in from the top and then ripped out to the side maybe? I have some T.rex replica teeth and one seems to fit fairly decently. So I'm wondering, how plausible is it that this is a T. rex bite mark? We know T.rex ate Edmontosaurus of course, and we know it can crush bone. Opinions? Braincase overview. Hole closeups.
