  1. When I first set out to collect Dinosaur fossils, a fossil dealer with a long history in the industry and from whom I had purchased shark fossils from had this listed for sale. It was sold as a Troodon formosus ( I am aware it is an invalid taxon). When I committed to purchasing this, i was unaware that only Troodontid teeth had been found in Hell Creek and I tended to believe dealer ID's. I do not regret the purchase. It is a great little bone to have in our education program and it was not expensive. We want to cover Troodontids in our education program which is why I bought this. It was cheaper than a tooth. It was also a good lesson to learn early on and without a significant financial investment. I do my homework know before purchasing a dinosaur fossil and if I have questions, I put it here. It seems unlikely that that the dealer ID is correct just based on the lack of Troodontid bones that come from Hell Creek. I want to know we have and be accurate in what we present to kids so I have put some effort into figuring this out. It is a very small vertebra as you can see in the pictures. I did find some small theropod caudal vertebrae that look similar including a Troodontid. I have done some homework on this and tried to figure it out but I can not get much further on my own. All I can say for sure is that is does not appear to be a fish or mammal and I do not think it is a crocodilian either. Any thoughts or information would be helpful !!
  2. Sharktooth Hill Cetacean Ear Bone

    I know this is a cetacean ear bone and I know it is from Sharktooth Hill but that is ablut all I know for sure. It is pretty large at 3" long and 1.5'' wide which would seem to rule out of the smaller dolphin-like whales. My first thought was Aulophyseter morreci. It could also be a mysticeti as well. Regardless of species, it is a really nice addition to our STH whale collection.
  3. Been hunting the NSR now for a few years and this is the first time I've found a bunch of bones in matrix. Was out yesterday with @zoocosmolinaand her husband at a new hunting spot for all of us. We had an absolute blast! I found the following and the bones have a "fishy" look to em. Bones exposed on all 6 sides. I'd love to expose more to try and figure out what may be encased. Any recommendations for someone who has never prepped before? It's about 7 inches long x 4 inches wide x 3.5 inches deep.
  4. Hi folks. spotted this on a recent holiday in the UK to the south coast ( Dorset - the Jurassic coast ). the rock was approx. 250kg and I got it down to 80kg to get it in the car. the reason was I noticed this strange raised disc edge shape within the rock which does not appear man made. the rock is extremely hard. I plan to start removing the rock to expose more of it as I'm curious. any ideas as to if this is even a fossil and if so what it could be.
  5. Unknown Penn Dixie Find

    Here's another fossil from Penn Dixie I'm having trouble with. It's from the Devonian shale, and it can be hard to see in the photo as it blends in really well and is a bit worn. There is a trilobite in the upper part of the photo, I've circled the interesting feature in red. It's a circular shape with ribbed features radiating from the center. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure if it's actually a fossil or just an anomaly in the rock.
  6. Unknown fossil

    Hello! I found this fossil yesterday while searching for trilobites near the Buffalo River in middle tennessee. it measures approximately 5-6 inches long and around d an inch wide. Any information regarding it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

  10. Lots of IDS needed

    I guys I have a large amount of unidentified fossils (40+). I was hoping you guys can Identify them for me. All were found in eastern NC (Aroura or Emerald Isle beach) Thanks, for any help. I have them numbered for easy reference. I also have them next to quarters and pennies for size reference. The quarter is 1 inch tall and wide and pennies are .75 inch tall and wide I can take more pics upon request 1.
  11. About a month ago, I headed out on two fossil trips to the well-known St. Leon roadcut in Indiana. I was hunting in the Liberty formation (late Ordovician) with the sole goal of finding some nice trilobites (which I definitely achieved!). Along with multiple rare trilobites, I was able to find some excellent examples of other fossils. The spoils were totally awesome, and I am itching to go back. I hope you enjoy. Best for last.
  12. Unknown Fossil

    Unknown Fossil found in NY NJ PA tri-states area, near the Delaware River Small pinhole in either end
  13. Unknown Fossil

    Possible fossil in rock
  14. Hello all! Another question from a fossil and geology newbie. I found a bag of interesting rocks in my home today. It contained what looked like store bought rocks but I have literally no idea where they came from or how I got them. Included were two fern looking fossils and I'm not sure if they're real or not. This is probably an extremely stupid question, but I just want to make sure. Thank you! (also my apologies for the terrible lighting in the photo, I can attach more if needed)

  17. Is this in Nautilidae?

    Not quite sure what is going on here. In my class we were handed a box of fossils and this was in it. My theory is that its the body of a nautilus. Let me know what your thoughts are.
  18. Hi any ideas on this I'm stumped how old

    Does anyone know what this is?I have other fossil I'm stumped on to please let me know.thanks
  19. ID help please

    Hello, I just recently joined the group and I am hoping for some help on this fossil. Other than the photos, I can't offer any information on it. About 20 years ago I was at an estate sale, in an old home, and spotted a rock up on the foundation in the basement. Upon retrieving it and blowing off the layers of dust and dirt, I found this fossil. I asked if it was for sale, and bought it for a dollar. The texture on the fossil has caused my imagination to wander, but I have no idea what it might be or where it came from. Any information is much appreciated. Thanks.
  20. Three Items Needing ID

    Hello again! I have three more items that I need help with. Thanks so much for all the help here lately guys I certainly appreciate it!
  21. Okay What is It? Geode or Fossil

    Greetings once more, This is my second posting and has a direct correlation to my opening post. As previously stated the fossil/geode, displayed in the photos, has been in my possession since my father's passing in 2004. I have no idea as to where or how he obtained but will say that he was a traveler and collector of various items from around the world. The identity of this item has been the topic of many discussions between my wife and kids (now grown). They both still ask me as to "What is it?". So I humbly call upon the members today; What is it? FYI, I will be posting several high resolution pics (11) for your review Regards Mark
  22. Good Evening! Would anyone by chance know how to identify this fossil? I found it interesting because of the "branches" coming out in a circular pattern. And at the center it appears to have some form of crystal that developed. The location of this fossil is Island Park, Eastern Idaho, in a boulder field on the south eastern side of the base of Mount Jefferson. If you have any questions or need more information, please let me know Any comments are greatly appreciated, thank you!
  23. This fossil was tucked away at the back of my Whitby ammonite collection draw with no label. I’ve asked my son if he could shed any light on how it came to be there. As it’s not like any Whitby Ammonite I’ve seen before, and to be honest it almost has a somewhat Silurian gastropod appearance to it similar to Poleumita discors which I have a few. My son is often rummaging through my fossil draws which is absolutely fine. I’ve kept a record of all the fossils that have been collected over the years but unfortunately this one has slipped under the radar. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
  24. Ohio River fossil

    I need help to identify a fossil found on the Illinois side of the Ohio River near the Shawnee National Forest.
  25. Grandma's Fossil

    Sorry, my grandma's not fossilized... The fossil I need help identifying was unearthed by my grandfather, a heavy equipment operator outside of Boston about 40 years ago. He has since passed away and I promised my Grandma I would research it for her. The stone is very heavy, the size of the fossil is about 8-9 inches long (I didn't think to measure when I took the pics). My Grandma can't remember for sure the town where it was excavated but it was close to the city. I have no idea what it is or even if it actually is a fossil, we always assumed it was a plant, some sort of fern possibly. Would love to hear what you all think. Many thanks and let me know if you need better pictures or more info. -Christian
