  1. Very Large Otodus obliquus?

    I would have called this Otodus obliquus, but this morning I was reading, and got confused, about these teeth from Morocco. Now Im not sure what this is called. Even with the tip missing, this tooth measures just over 3.5 inches. RB
  2. Found a tooth on the beach

    I found a tooth on the beach, but I am unable to identify the animal to which it belonged to. It has a width of about 1.5inches, so it is fairly large. Anyone who tries to identify it, your help will be much appreciated.
  3. Fossil Teeth ID

    These were both found along Calvert Cliffs where the older, Calvert Formation, is present. The first tooth with the cusps is smooth edged. The 2nd tooth is a bit worn, but does seem to have had serrations. I have been identifying it as a small worn posterior Meg. The new tooth made me check it again and wonder, but it does still appear to be a Meg and not something older to my eyes. What I come up with for ID puts the tooth with cusps out of place at Calvert. Seems like it should be from an older formation. Both were found this season, but many months apart. Distance between the finds was pretty close, I'd say 1/8 mile or less . I am a kayaker; these were both from an area easier to reach by kayak, and where I do tend to find older, smaller teeth.
  4. Hello beloved forum. I could use help on a mammal incisor ID for a friend: they don't have any info on the location, other than that it is domestic to the States, unfortunately. I've ruled out Giant Beaver, and I assume it's not a baby mammoth tusk (there appears to be a slight 'bulge' in the middle). Any advice would be deeply appreciated. Please see pictures.
  5. Paleochris68's collection

    Hello ! I present you my very small collection. I started it last summer, so I do not have many pieces yet, but I prefer pretty pieces. I do not have the chance to search on the field, so I buy my fossils. We have: Keichousaurus Hui, I really like his broken tail Russian trilobite, Asaphus punctatus (I have not been able to label it yet). Restoration verified with violet lamp, less than 10% Spinosaurus tooth, correct quality, only glued but with pieces of the same tooth Last Acquisition: caudal vertebra spinosaurus I am going to buy other teeth of theropauds (carcharodontosaurs) in the next few months and I am mainly interested in dinosaurs fossils. The choice is unfortunately limited for the cheap parts (less than 1000 dollars) See you soon !
  6. Possible tooth?

    Got some micro fossil matrix from the Inglis fm in Yankeetown, FL yesterday & was poking around in it. Found several flat disc's (echinoids), a few tiny urchins, urchin spines & this oddity. I think it's a tooth, but from what I have no idea. Just over 5 mm in length, very glossy & slick which made it hard to pick out of the matrix & kinda beautiful. Not sure what to make of it, but I'm hoping the folk's here can. Looks like it may be a frontal tooth, if it is a tooth. The marks on the ruler in pic 1 are mm.
  7. Hey guys, I´m from Germany and have bought this little tooth from the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. The seller described the tooth as "Dromaeosaur tooth", which belongs possible to Dakotaraptor or Acherorator. I´m not sure about the identification of this tooth and hope, that you can help me. The tooth is 1,27cm (= 1/2") in lenght. Thank you in advance and kind regards!
  8. North Myrtle Beach tooth?

    Found what appears to be a tooth at North Myrtle Beach. There appears to be enamel but the tip is missing, and what looks like a root. Any ideas on what it is?
  9. Fake Mosasaur Tooth?

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me if this is a real tooth. It looks almost too good to be true. Thanks for the help.
  10. Hey guys. Saw this nice Timurlengia tooth, was wondering if it has any restoration or not. I have circled a part that looks a different colour,have no idea if it means anything or not. These are the only pics I have,sorry. Do you guys see any red flags? Thanks for the help. regards
  11. Went to a new (for me) creek today that feeds into the NSR. Was about to give up, had not found anything, when this pops up? I first thought that it was a mosasaur jaw bone with a big tooth in it and then after I retrieved it I realized this was no normal mosasaur tooth? I have found teeth before and they are slightly curved and this is completely straight. I could not find anything similar on the Web but I suspect this could be a turtle claw (not sure the official nomenclature)? It is about 2 inches long and 3/4 inch diameter at the base. Any thoughts on this one? Thanks
  12. ok this is one I purchased

    I know I know its from china it is something I bought online....not sure if it is a Woolly Rhino or not no info was given on it so figured to post it here to be sure. it is a bit damp I had to rinse some of the dirt off of it to get a good look.
  13. Interesting teeth found

    I have found these teeth pve a period of time. I know they are terth but for what creature, i haven't a clue. Ant thoughts would be appreciated.
  14. Shark tooth found in Palm Beach area of Queensland, anyone ID it? Only approx 1.000" size but looks very old. They are dredging at the moment and this may have come up, doesn't seem to fit with current sharks.
  15. Pliosaur tooth from Morocco?

    Hey guys. Saw this tooth labelled as pliosaur. It really looks like a fat plesiosaur,croc or mosa. Hard to tell. Is there a pliosaur expert here who can confirm it or not? Would be awesome. 4,5cm, Goulmima Morocco. Sorry these are the only pics I have. Kind regards
  16. Sharktooth Hill find.

    So I went back to Sharktooth to dig on Saturday. My friend wanted to go, since she didn't go last time, so I took the second trip. My friend found a nice number of shark teeth, on particularly nice Mako-like tooth with complete root, as well as some other nice ones. She did quite well, with a significantly better tooth count than I had. She was working new holes, while I worked a place that had started producing decent teeth a couple of weeks ago, including a cetacean partial tooth. Out of that hole came this interesting specimen. I was thinking allodesmus, but it would seem to be a large one. A nice guy digging out there, named Tim, said that he thought it may be something more like a desmostylus. What say our resident, as well as transient, experts? Many thanks ahead of time.
  17. dinosaur tooth

    found in western NM, is it a dino tooth? any help is appreciated.
  18. Tyrannosaurus Rex tooth

    From the album My Collection

    Hell Creek Formation, Faith, South Dakota, USA It is a beautiful tooth with no restoration. The tooth has the characteristic d shape profile of a trex tooth on the basal side and this sort of preservation is actually fairly common with tooth also collected from other locations such as Wyoming. The first ever dinosaur tooth that I owned!
  19. T Rex? Please Identify This Tooth

  20. Tooth? ID for friend. North Texas

  21. 1.25" Rough Nanotyrannus Tooth I.D.

    Hello TFF! This is my first post (finally just made an account after some technical difficulties, thanks @Fossildude19 for your help!) although I've been reading up for the past few months on this site. I am looking to purchase this Nanotyrannus tooth from an auction site, and I have included all of the pictures provided on the listing. I understand that this is a very rough tooth (the seller clearly states this as well and doesnt try to mislead in the slightest) and I just want to make sure that it is actually a Nanotyrannus tooth. The seller states it is from the Hell Creek Formation, 1.25" long, feeding worn tip, and wear grooves from the opposing teeth. The seller also states that there has been no restoration/repair done, other than some fossil glue used to stabilize the tip, and a COA can be included following purchase. I'm just looking for confirmation that it is a nanotyrannus tooth, or even a tyrannosaurid tooth. I tried to include all of the info I.D. posts usually need, but if I missed anything please let me know. Thank you all for your help! I really appreciate it!
  22. It's been a while since i've posted any finds but i had a fun trip recently and thought i would share. Spent about 3 hours poking around and found a great assortment of NSR goodies... I think the dark vert in the middle is Plesiosaurus but 'im not sure. The 3 joined bony fish verts were my favorite fossil of the trip for sure. Found a few nice artifacts including what I think is a Big Sandy point that's about 8k years old. Enjoy
  23. I finally completed the reorder of my collection of fossils and minerals. It is a wooden hexagonal display cabinet of several wood/glass shelf; in the pictures attached I only show some of them. I 3D printed more than 20 custom drawer compartments for the smallest specimens. I decided to go for a modular design, so I can adapt every compartment to the specimen. As printing material, I used a "wood PLA" filament 3D printed with 1 mm nozzle on the Alfawise U20 3D printer. I finally added a strip LED inside the cabinet door and powered it via a USB power-bank - so it is fully wireless. In this picture you can see some of my recent purchases: Two Sinosauridae indet. teeth from Kem Kem One Acheroraptor tooth from Hell Creek formation, Powder River Co., Montana Some Mosasaurus teeth from Kem Kem One Pterosaurs tooth from Kem Kem A piece of Rhinocerontidae indet. jaw from South Dakota Some ammonites, shark teeth, a Flexicalymene ouzregui, a couple of echinoids (I found the white one in a brick!); the Velociraptor skull is 3D printed as well. This is the other side. The big sand echinoid was also found by me in a brick! On the right there's a nice fossil coral: I never seen something similar, please let me know if you know it's name. Three fossil fishes and a nice ammonites cluster with some quartz in the background. At the end, some minerals... Now I only have to finish the cataloging of all specimen. I already finished with fossils, now I have to start with minerals - it will be very looong! What do you think? Do you like it? Ciao!
  24. Deinonychus collection

    I only started collecting fossils about a year ago. I happened to just type in my favorite dinosaurs name into feebay on a whim. And I saw a fossil from an actual Deinonychus that I could own.... The addiction began, lol. A year later it's still a meager collection, especially being on a budget. But I wanted to share my finds thus far from the past year. A special thank you to @mburkett who ended my year long daily hunt for a deinonychus tooth.
  25. Hey everyone, I was just wondering what the size range (preferably in inches) is for a Tyrannosaurus Rex Tooth is. Thanks! - FossilsandScience
