  1. Newbie

    Hello all, I found my deer hunting spot is full of fossils, any ideas how old or what this is? It feels like petrified wood by weight. It was in a pocket of coral type fossils I will add them to another post. It was found in Cheboygan Michigan.
  2. Dimetrodon sail spine pieces

    From the album Permian era fossils

    Very small fragments of dimetrodons sail spines. From the lower Permian Texas Red Beds, Archer city formation in Archer county
  3. Hybodus

    From the album Sharks and fish

    Hybodus Houtienensis shark spine Permian to Cretaceous shark (impressive!!!!!) beautiful serration teeth down the back.
  4. Hi guys me again, Found this spine while sifting the Caloosahatchee on Glades County, FL. Any thoughts? Regards, Alex
  5. Hey everyone, this is for anything Sphenacodont--dimetrodon, or otherwise. Collections/pictures/discussions/whatever. This is the splinter thread off of the sphenacodont collections thread, so if anyone would like to bring over anything from the other thread, please feel free. I'm going to bring over some interesting posted info that covered different topics, and with links to interesting and useful info. *some discussions covering other things and animals in relation to sphenacodonts is perfectly fine. For instance, spinosaurus, Permian topics, apex predators, or whatever. As long as it has some relation. Side-tracking is fine, just bring it back home before too long, please. Here's a link to the previous thread. It would be greatly appreciated if you post pictures of any dimetrodon/sphenacodont fossil material you have:)
  6. Please ID this bone

    I found this on the beach in Eastern Maine. I was wondering if anyone could identify it. I thought it might be a spinous vertebrae of a large mammal. Thank you!
  7. Fossil ID Inquiry

    Hello. While vacationing along Lake Huron in Michigan, I found a rather impressive, and likely rare, fossil (see image). It is clearly a vertebrate with skull, spine, appendages, and pelvic region relatively intact and clearly visible. The specimen is approximately 2 inches by 2 inches in size. Any advice or direction, as to whom I should contact to identify/analyze my find would be most appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.
  8. Spinosaurus sail?

    Ok, so this is supposed to be a spinosaurus vert, one with part of the sail. At first glance it seems perfect, but upon further study, while trying to place it on spinosaurus skeletons, it doesn't seem to match any exactly. For one thing, spinosaurus sails, at least in the relatively insignificant amount of individuals on display, sail bones that don't go any higher than this one(it appears this is a fully intact sail vert), don't seem to get as wide. And the ones that do, then continue up and get thinner. There ARE similar shaped "sail" bones, at the transition to the neck, and tail, but those aren't as tall as this one. The main bone itself appears to be from the tail, or rear part of the sail, but....well, anywhere that one part of the bone fits well, doesnt seem to match the rest of it very well. Sadly I can't find any good images of many of each type of vert, and anywhere that has good close up views of verts, only have 1 or 2 of any type, which isn't good enough to come to any sufficient conclusions. spinosaur fossils(specifically verts), seem to be something they work with a lot, so I would be very surprised if along with all the other spinosaurus verts they get in, they would end up with the sail spine of some other animal. And if somehow so, then not realizing it.
  9. rapp creek hunting- catfish spine?

    After looking at the Net, this seems to be a fossil catfish spine. How can you tell if it is a pectoral or a dorsal spine?
  10. Paracidaris florigemma spine - close up

    Close up of a spine of the regular echinoid Paracidaris florigemma from the oxfordian of "les Vaches Noires" Cliffs - collected during april 2018
  11. Fossilized vertebra

    Hello everyone. This is my first "identification" post. First and foremost: I purchased this from eBay for a reasonable price. That being said, even though the dealer is reputable and supposedly got it from a reputable source...well we know how that goes. The reason I bought it, is because 1)I can reasonably identify it as fossil. 2) The protruding object that got lodged in its sedimentary matrix, nearest to the transverse process? A tooth? So it was advertised as being disassembled and sold from a Plesiosaur vertebrae, named "Victoria". It was supposedly recovered from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Some observations: 1)The tooth-looking object. 2)It's unusually white color 3)The sandy sediment (more like a coastal recovery?) 3)Glue? on the superior part of the fossil?? Question:1)Is there reason to believe it may be from a Plesiosaur. (some from a different forum believe it may be a Miocene mammal? Dolphin?) Please forgive my lack of experience in this field...as I am very new to it. VERY new. LOL. Thanks!
  12. Hi all. My kids and I were hunting in the North Sulphur River today and we found this long, spine-like fossil with a double row of tooth-like structures. I have been searching on the web and think that it may be a fin spine of a chimaeroid; however, I want to see what others think. The reasons for my thinking this is that the double row of tooth-like projections are evenly and tightly spaced and that the projections are aligned between the rows. The projections do not look like they are teeth (I see no tooth sockets) and are curved. Also, there is a faint groove between the double row. Below are some photos. Any help on IDing this is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  13. Hybodont cephalic clasper

    From the album Sharks from other locations

    Cephalic clasper, most likely from Egertonodus basanus; Valanginian, Early Cretaceous; Wealden beds, UK.
  14. found in Dorset, Uk....

    Hello everyone, If someone could help ID these for me i would be super grateful! Had some great finds, these were altogether....
  15. Is this a fossil ?

    Is this a fossil rock ?
  16. beach find

    wondering if anyone had any thoughts about if this looked like a type of bone. Found it on east coast beach.
  17. Richmond Cretaceous oddity

    I have been quiet for a while but, sifting through some matrix from the cretaceous of central Queensland Australia I have come across some small fragments that I suspect to be bits of either a spine (spike) or bone. The bit that has me thrown is there is a distinct grain (striations) appearance on the outer surface that has thrown me. This was found in the same batch as the tarsal so could be a clue or a red herring. Photos of top and underside as well as an end view. Any suggestions appreciated. Tarsel 4.5 mm - longest unknown bit in two sections 18 mm so not large Mike D'Arcy
  18. Hi, I found this amongst rocks near the water at Lyme Regis beach in 2004. I assumed icthyosaurus but the curvature seems extreme for one. So if anyone can shed light on what this is, would be most appreciated as it's my most precious and largest creature find. Thanks in advance.
  19. Cretaceous fish jaw?

    New Jersey campanian. Found this a while back and haven't been able to get a good grasp on it's ID. Of course when I first found It I thought it was a jaw piece with teeth. Yay! Then I put on my glasses. Hmm. The fish spines I've found aren't serrated. It's obviously split but maybe someone has seen this before. Any insight is greatly appreciated. Thanks Jeff Edited: I believe this to be an enchodus jaw section thanks to the folks answering below.
  20. Hi! What kind of animal is this? I thought it was from a human long ago or maybe a moose / cow. What kind of animal is this from? As we can see it's a spine with remaining pieces and the rib Cage or the back bones? / ManFromSweden94
  21. Newbie here. Have plenty of photos it only allowed 1
  22. no,i said MILIARY

    I am posting this because I think it is a necessary adjunct to Andy Smith's work Mo Milias.pdf figure:
  23. Would love to see some of the ways to display a partial spine
  24. Bones hanging

    Hi everyone. i was at an estate sale today and acquired this real bone wall hanging.. I can't think of any creature with projection out its back. This boney projections are from 8" to 9" in length. Can anyone make some suggestions? Kay
  25. Articulated Spine from WHAT?

    Right up front, I apologize for the poor quality of the photos. I left the vertebrae in place so these are the only photos I have. This series of 8 vertebrae were found weathered out in what I believe to be Whitewater, Brule in the general area of Interior South Dakota Badlands. I would love to have an ID!
