  1. Had been talking with a guy selling a spinosaurus jaw-piece, and got the pictures of it today. And the first thing that strikes me, is how perfect the teeth look compared to the rest of the jaw. To me, it sorta looks like they were planted there. With that said, there's a tooth in the jaw, that hasn't grown out, which is obviously much harder to make. However it does look like the part on where it sits, has been restored, and thereby the chance of it being placed there. And to me it also looks a bit like there are fillings in-between the two big teeth. I'm very much in doubt about this one, but right now it looks very suspicious to me, so I just wanted to post this here in case some of you guys can confirm that it's fake, composite, or real.
  2. Emmitsburg Rock or Fossils

    Found these in local creek whose source is the local Emmitsburg MD. One was encased in sandstone.The other in some other more grainy stone. If you look close, the grayish one has tiny bumps uniformly along the side. I may have scraped some too much. Any ideas on if these are fossils?
  3. Although we are currently in the depths of February, spring is just around the corner! With spring comes spring break and a week of digging!! One of the locations I am planning a visit to is Jamesville quarry in Jamesville NY. I would love to unearth some nice placoderm pieces. If anybody has info about the site, especially who to contact for permission, I'd greatly appreciate it!
  4. Starting as a shark tooth collector a long time ago, last year I became interested in dinosaur fossils and decided to start collecting them. Despite dinosaur material, especially from rare locations, being usually very expensive for a college student, over this year I managed to get some interesting specimens through numerous trades, sales and purchases, some of which I want to organize in this topic. So, let's begin with Early Cretaceous (Aptian-Albian). All of my material from this time comes from Cloverly formation in Montana and Wyoming. Tenontosaurus tilleti - a large basal ornithopod, I have tooth and a vertebra with ?bite marks And a rare Nodosaurid tooth - Sauropelta is the only one described, although there could potentially be more than one species Cenomanian stage (early Late Cretaceous) is not that well represented in North American dinosaur fossil record, I have a hadrosaur and dromaeosaurid teeth from Woodbine formation, Texas A very significant portion of dinosaur fossils from North America comes from Campanian deposits of various stages. Let's begin with Judith river formation in Montana. Got some nice theropods - Tyrannosauridae indet. (potentially present Daspletosaurus and Gorgosaurus cannot be differentiated based on teeth) on the left and Saurornitholestes sp. on the right. And a nice Ceratopsian tooth (again, cannot be identified to the genus level, too many of them present) There is another formation in Montana of a similar age - Two Medicine formation. Recently got some nice material from there I can show here. First, a maxillary tooth from a hadrosaur Gryposaurus latidens - easily identifiable by the presence of denticles near the crown apex. Unidentified hadrosaur tooth with a complete root
  5. What teeth is this?

    Hello. Found this teeth in Sangiran, Java, Indonesia. Looks like omnivore teeth. Maybe wild boar. Any idea? The length measurement in the pic was in cm.
  6. Made it out to the North Sulphur River yesterday and found a couple of interesting pieces of bone. One was a small jawbone that may be mosasaur but may be small enough to be from some type of fish, not sure. The other piece was one of the largest that I have found but is an odd shape and I am not sure if it may be from a mosasaur, most of the material from this area falls into that group? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
  7. Bawdsey Trip - Tooth ID??

    Headed down to Bawdsey in Suffolk for a few hours. The beach has built up loads covering up the best big teeth grounds, still managed to find a few. Got the Striatolamia macrotas from the bottom of the shingle ridge and also a fish vertebra? (Can anyone confirm). The rest of the teeth were all from the red crag layer. Also found a possible cow shark tooth which i have never found! (Please say it is!!!) And some other fossil, i have found a lot of these previously but never as large. Apologies i cant take any better photos due to using my phone! If anyone can help with identifying these that would be marvellous! Thanks for reading guys and girls!
  8. Teeth

    Hi everyone, Here I've two teeth, which seems -as you can see by the color- to be fossils or sub-fossils. I found them in a beach of a volcanic lake (Central Europe), where there aren't sedimentary formations, so I suppose they are not older than the lake itself (the collapse of the caldera and the formation of the lake are dated between 400,000 and 150,000 years ago). Do you think they could be recent fossil or subfossil? Which kind of animal? They are 3 and 2 cm long.
  9. Emmitsburg MD Find

    Backyard was a prehistoric lake. Dino fossils found close by. Found these recently. They clearly seem to be teeth with a root stem and ridges. Possibly some herbivore, or else, I could just be wrong. Any help would be humbly appreciated Please zoom in. Could not get good pics with file size limit.
  10. I don't have any tyrannosaur teeth in my collection, so I am looking for advice when purchasing teeth from these famous theropods. Does this tooth look look like daspletosaurus, it 9cm long. The seller has not put any locality on as far as I can see.
  11. Bony Jaw?

    This bony jaw-like fossil was found on Panama City beach in Florida. Any idea what it is?
  12. I was told by a friend that most spinosaurus teeth are sigilmassasaurus. Is this true? If so, does this make spinosaurus rare and sigilmassasaurus the common one? Sorry about my limited knowledge on these things.
  13. Hey all, I really want to see peoples Stethacanthus teeth or better maybe a skeleton of some kind. If anyone has these can they show them below? Thanks.
  14. I personally own a 1,57" (4cm) Squalicorax tooth from Morocco and was wondering how large they could get. What is the biggest Squalicorax tooth you guys have ever seen or own?
  15. So in my few months of collecting, I’ve really found my favorite tooth to collect is the Ptychodus. Not sure if it’s the fact that it’s a shark tooth but not your normal sharp at a razor style, or just because they are all so different. I am really wanting to start just a collection of Ptychodus teeth. In the mean time, I want to live vicariously through everyone else. I really wanted to start this topic just to see who has the biggest one out there in fossil land! So if you all don’t mind, please post!!!
  16. Largest basilosaurus tooth

    Does anyone know how large basilosaurus canines can get? I don't know if they're all technically canine teeth, but I'm referring to the 4 to 5 single-point front teeth. Crown & root together.
  17. Hi all! I am new to the forum and relatively new to fossil collecting. I would like to try my hand at preparation, but am not sure where to start. It seems like purchasing mosasaur teeth still embedded in matrix and slowly working to get them out might be a good way to practice with cheap and easily obtainable fossils, but I do not know how to go about this. In my head I imagine purchasing a few 20-30 dollar teeth with matrix, chisels, and scribers to be a great and (relatively) cheap way to begin practicing various techniques that I intend use for the rest of my life, is there anything else I need to be aware of, or perhaps other recommended forms of practicing preparation and removal of fossils from rock for beginners with a plethora of patience/time? Hopefully this makes sense!
  18. Plesiosaur/Ichthyosaur teeth

    Hey! Thought I would share a photo of my British Ichthyosaur and Plesiosaur teeth (and 2 Plesiosaur ribs and a shark tooth!) Most of these fossils come from South Wales except for the large tooth. It is suspected to be from Eurycleidus and was found in Aust, England. Plesiosaur teeth from the UK are apparently very rare.
  19. Mystery Fossil From Rock Show

    Quite some years back my late uncle purchased the attached fossil at a gem show here locally. Too be completely honest it looks kind of fake to me... but im might just have a untrained eye. My Aunt has taken the picture. I Couldn't possibly imagine it being from around here so I'm really not sure what age it could be or what location it is from. I'll try to acquire some more photos with a scale shortly. I know its a shot in the dark but any feedback would be greatly appreciated. -Nick
  20. I found this in Florida but I am not 100% sure what kind of tooth it is any help would be amazing.
  21. Hello everybody Here are some fish all directly from Solnhofen. I bought these many years ago at the local fossil store in Solnhofen. No idea about species, I just can assure these fish are all from there Looking for any Dino teeth material (except Spino and Abelisauridae from Morocco) or rooted Mosasaur teeth (maybe even with a small jaw fragment?). I can trade more fish for one tooth If you want these fish, but feel your tooth is worth more, maybe we can still make a deal. Let us talk about it Be aware that I live in Germany, however shipping to the US or other parts of the world is no problem. Will check this once I know the destination, because of the weight. I can provide more close up pictures, no problem My pocket rule only has CM, sorry! Fish 1 Fish 2 Fish 3 Fish 4 Fish 5
  22. Please Help Me Identify This Tooth

    Hey guys, Just purchased this lovely looking tooth however the seller doesn't know what it's from? Any suggestions would be great. A few people have said that it could possibly be raptor? It has some beautiful serrations. Looking for to your suggestions. Thanks
  23. Are all these Tiger Shark teeth?

    Sorting my sharks' teeth. Not 100 percent sure about some of these. There are just enough differences to throw me. I used a flash because it seemed the best way to highlight the details. First picture front, second picture back. Thank you!
  24. I'm out of time!!!!

    Hey all! Well, if you've read some of my previous posts you'll see that throughout 2018 I've been working in Maryland and Virginia. While here I've been visiting some of the local haunts along the Atlantic to find.... really anything, and I have! HOWEVER, I have yet to find a single shark tooth!!! The rub now is timing. I am about to accept a new position with a company and my time on the Bay is coming to an end. I'm here this week and plan on visiting Matoaka Beach for the first time tomorrow. I am going to leave my hotel in Columbia, MD at 8am. Any suggestions, tricks, hints.... scooby snacks????? I've been talking about finding my son a Meg tooth for a year now and I'm coming up with squat! hahaha
