  7. Rauisuchians are some of my favorite prehistoric beasts, rather specific but I'm wondering if anyone on here on the forum has any material to show I'd love to see. So far I've been only able to obtain postosuchus teeth and recently begrudgingly missed out on some Batrachotomus kupferzellensis.

  11. this summer vacation i spend a day fossil hunting at lyme regis i found some ammonites and bellemnites but also 2 big pieces of rock and i'm going to prepare them for a school project the rock formation was blue lias can i have any advice for cleaning the fossils?
  12. Icarealcyon malagasium Beltan, 1984

    Due to its enormous pectoral fins, Icarealcyon malagasium was described by Beltan as a "poisson volant" - a "flying fish" - in the family Semonotidae (not related to what is now known as "flying fish" - these are Exocoetidae in the order Beloniformes). You would expect flying fish to be fast swimmers - the rather thickset appearance of Icarealcyon more likely hints to slow swimmers with relatively high maneuverability (comparable to Albertonia from British Columbia).

  16. Permian/Triassic

    Hello, Does somebody here knows where I can obtain permian or triassic vertebra fossils (no fish, exept shark) and reptiles, amphibians.... I prefer good quality. Thanks Thijs
  17. Triassic Nautiloids

    just finished a lower Carnian slab with two Nautiloids(probably Mojsvaroceras cf. perarmatus) Additionally a questionable bone fragment appeared during prep. (the second bone within 20 years of collecting in the Hallstatt limestone) Unfortunly I didn't take "before" pics because I didn't think that it turns out so well. Can anyone confirm that this is bone structure on the polished part? I think so, but I am not sure. The ammonoid on top is a Monophyllites simonyi. So the slab is of lower Carnian, Julian time. regards Andreas
  19. Coelophysis

    Just recently purchased one of these teeth for the cheap price of $14 dollars from a seller on ebay. I was wondering if anyone with more experience with fossils than I, could tell me if they believe this tooth to be authentic? The ebay seller has all positive reviews. Thank you.

  21. Odd Triassic tooth

    While digging around in some bone bed (Triassic, Rhaetic, Penarth Group, Westbury Formation, Rhaetic Bone Bed Aust Cliff, River Severn, South Gloucestershire, UK.) I found this tooth. I must have cracked a ton of this stuff over recent years and have never found anything like it. Fossils of the area are marine reptiles tiles and fish. Common finds are fish teeth and coprolites, plesiosaur and ichthyosaur bones, mostly, unsurprising, vertebrae. Oh and thank you Ray @aerogrower it's first outing Your wisdom and comments please! Labial surface Lingual surface Occlusal surface Root end Stupidly I forgot to photograph the proximal sides but hopefully you can get a rough idea from the other shots.
  22. Triassic fossils in need of ID

    So I went to look for an owner of a potential site, I did end up getting an address but no one was home, so I decided to go to a previously unfossiliferous site. With this Gettysburg shale, you look for glossy layers (for some reason these are the layers with fossils. At the major exposure there was none, but under/next to a dirt boat ramp there was about five inch long three inch high outcrop of good stone. Yes, I got some strange looks poking at the ground with my trusty screw driver, but I got some small trinkets to show. I found these lines, most are different size and shape, one looks like the worm itself, although I feel I may be mistaken. Some hollow circles that look almost like crinoid columnals are present as well. This is most of what I found, tell me what you all think. I can take more pictures and provide more information. Note: there may be some repeats, i was just trying to get every picture before sundown.

  24. Any ideas? I got none.

    Okay, so I did not create this with my hammer,scribe, or trusty screwdriver, it's on a different slab than the other one but this one also has some raindrops. It's Triassic Gettysburg formation from near emmitsburg, MD. It is a strange pointed mark almost as if something was pulled across it. Not all is preserved, I know this because it stops and then starts again (last pic). I'm stumped, let me know what you guys think.
  25. Another burrow?

    Hello everyone, this fossil is in a larger plate with lots of raindrops from the Triassic Gettysburg shale of Maryland. It looks like a burrow but it could be a root or part of a larger footprint. What do y'all think?
