  1. Possible Vert, but from what

    North Sulphur River find from 5/27/18 Think it's a vertebra but it's not one I recognize, its 4.75 inches wide, 3.25 inches high. Pretty badly beat up from rolling around the river.
  2. Cretaceous Vert ?

    My find found this at a recent quarry outing and is asking for a positive ID, it is cretaceous, pee dee formation, there is also eocene, castle hayne formation there. It is concave on one end and convex on the other end. Thinking croc or mosasaur ? Need some help please. Thanks.
  3. What is this?

    Can anyone ID this?
  4. Season's Greeting! I found this broken vertabrae earlier this year around Big Brook NJ - it is Cretaceous in age. It's roughly missing 1/3 to 1/2 of it and is worn but i was wondering if we can tell what it is? I was thinking Plesiosaur but I'm really not sure about that. Thanks!
  5. Is this a plesiosaurus vert?

    This was sold to me as a plesiosaurus vert. Is this from a plesiosaurus or is it from something else? If so from what? Thanks for any info.
  6. Greens Mill Run, NC Fish Bone/Vert ID

    This was found a while back by a friend I was hunting with, busting open some rocks in the creek - nothing else was really in the rock but it was found with the usual GMR items washed into a gravel bed. There is a small vert attached to it but I am interested in possibly identifying WHAT bone that is attached to the vert and maybe even narrow it down to a type of fish (I assume it's fish). The bone attached reminds me of those tilly fish bones in texture/appearance. Any connection? 1- LOCATION Greenville, NC Greens mill Run. (Green Mill Run) 2- GEOLOGY/Formation Generally this location is part of the york town formation, Miocene-Pliocene-cretaceous 4- ASSEMBLAGE Shark teeth (mostly makkos, tiger near by) Belemnites and whale bone.
  7. Strange vert

    Pure speculation, gator? Found near the peace river in Arcadia. Any help, is appreciated.
  8. Mystery vert

    My guess is Dugong or whale (leaning on dugong) Very dense and heavy, thanks TFF!
  9. NJ Cretaceous stream vert id

    any help on id.....thanks
  10. Bone Bed

    Can anyone let me know what this is, I was given it by a guy on the Isle of Wight.
  11. Mystery Vert From Big Brook in N.J.

    I have been working a Cretaceous site in Big Brook in Monmouth County in New Jersey for many Years now and found a lot of stuff in the past but never seen this little vert before and I have really now clue what it is... So any input or help would be great. The vert measures 15mm at it longest point.
  12. Heyas, From the Pleistocene of Australia, this one. Is it a croc vert? I'll throw in a @tooth_claw as well, ha! Or is it a modern cow..? (Also a possibility, upon further research). Always a few melon scratchers.. Oh, and @Jesuslover340 as it is her find Cheers.
  13. Mosasaur Vert from NSR

    What kind of mosasaurus vertabrae might this be? What possible species? ( sorry about not posting this in my previous post )
  14. Mosasaur Cervical Vert

  15. Kem Kem Vertebra

    Is it possible to ID this vertebra? Thanks ...
  16. Fish Verts

    I wonder if anyone can identify these. Cretaceous, folkestone Gault clay in England They are very small.
  17. Small Shark Vertebrae from Galveston?

    Found this last week on my trip to Texas, got to go for a few hours to Galveston and beachcomb near the dike. Didn't find much, but I believe I found my first shark vert? Please see pictures attached. If it turns out to be a vert, would it be possible to ID the shark species? Thank you!
  18. NSR Vert

    North Sulphur River Texas mystery vert. It could be Pleistocene or Cretaceous. No doubt it's fossilized. Both ends are concave.
  19. So these are the pics from my last 3 hunts on the Bay the Megs seem to be hiding from the heat but other than that i killed it. First pic is last thursday second pic is last sunday third pic is from today and 4th is a closeup of the cow
  20. Turtle Vert

  21. I went up to my other property today just to go through some fossil stuff and bring back home. While there I ran into this little gem I got in a big box from some fossil dealer way back when. This comes from the shark tooth hill place. A cow shark tooth stuck onto a vertabre. I let my youngest son prep this out when he was about 10 years old. Today I took some Glyptal and soaked the tooth and the surrounding area with it. part of the root was EXSTREAMLY fragile and starting to fall apart. Even when I was applying the glue, even more came off!!! it was that fragile. I should have stable ized it years ago, but at least now it is much better. Just gave it to my son today. He was quite happy. RB
  22. Peace river

    So I went to Brownville on the peace river, in fl, Today. Usually, I dig in an area fairly close to public access (foot). Today, I walked downstream about a mile, saw some big rock beds that looked like spoil piles, walking along I find a mammoth tooth right on top! On a dry bed! Looking a little further, I see a really big vert, half exposed! What a day! The mammoth tooth is strange, it covers the hand, but is small (not broken) The occlusal surface consists of about 6 ridges and valleys and is 2 1/2 inches thick by 4 inches wide. The only camera I have, at the moment, is my sucky laptop, sorry. The tooth looks whole, is it deciduous? Any thoughts on the vert? Cetacion? I will update this thread with better photos at some point. Could not believe my luck! Surface finds in a relatively, well picked area. The fossil Gods are good!
  23. ID: Modern bones

    Hi all, I found these (modern) bones on one of the beaches of the Cape of Good Hope (South Africa). All three bones were found about 3-5 m apart, so there is a chance that they come from the same animal. We have a rib, a vertebrae, and a jaw (missing the teeth). Anyone have a clue on the ID? Thanks in advance, Max
