  1. First Meg

    We recently were able to take a trip to the Miocene of Virginia along the Potomac River. We weren't sure what the conditions would be, as the last time we were here the tide was extremely high limiting the length of the beach and how much was accessible. When we got to the beach we could tell it would be a good day, the tide was pretty low with still a couple hours to go before low tide, and we could see long stretches of beach in both directions. As we walked I wasn't having to much luck, but my wife who trailed behind me was finding some good sized hastalis teeth that I had missed. Once we got to a better section of the beach with cobble and larger rocks, we really started to take our time searching. In about ankle deep water I looked down and spotted a 4 7/8 inch halved meg, I couldn't believe it! By far the biggest and most complete meg I had ever found up to this point (Previously have only found very worn bits and pieces of megs). We kept searching and stopped to talk for a bit and when I looked down I saw another very worn meg sticking almost fully out of some fallen clay matrix. We were both happy with the day so far! Between two partial megs and a good number of hemi's and nice hastalis, it was definitely one of our more productive days. We reached the end of the accessible beach and decided to head back. On the way back, I was searching up along the higher parts of the shore and saw a small clay block with some black sticking out and picked it up. Looking at it I thought it was just some lignite, but decided to look a bit closer. I picked at it a bit and it ended up being a meg! My first complete and whole meg, I was extremely happy with the find and could finally check that off my list. Overall, we couldn't have asked for a better day weather or finds wise. For teeth we ended up with a good haul of hastalis, hemis, two partial and one whole megs, and a retroflexus.The plate pictured has on it a whale vert, epiphysis, and various shark or fish verts,
  2. Found together in same area- Id?

    Looking for ideas as to what these once were? They were found among others in the same area. Thoughts? Thanks in advance for your help.
  3. Fossil identification

    I found this fossil in Santa Cruz and don’t know what part of whale this is. Thank you all so much. The photos are the one I’m not so sure about.
  4. Unknown Dino vert?

    Hi, I purchased this unprepared, and was wondering what type of animal it came from? It’s from the lance fm, @jpc @Troodon@hadrosauridae, work your magic, please!
  5. My son and I were taking advantage of the north westerly winds blowing the water out of the Neuse River and exposing more shoreline. My 7 year old found the lighter colored tooth and I found the darker (black) teeth all within 18” of each other along with the other fossilized bones. May 8th, 2020. I just signed up for this forum and would like to send more photos of the other bones.
  6. Help IDing some fossils

    Hello everyone, I’m new so I hope I do this right! I recently got some new fossils and among them were two interesting pieces. One was an unidentified bone which when I saw I immediately thought it looked like a Vertabrae. I’m no expert but it has the shape of one with the neural canal clearly there, however I could be wrong. It certainly doesn’t feel like stone so I don’t think it has been fossilised although again, I’m no expert. I don’t expect anyone to be able to work out the exact species from this, but maybe just a better idea on if I’m right about the type of bone and maybe the type of animal it came from, I’d guess some kind of mammal. The other fossil was a set of jaws in stone. It looks like a composite. My initial thought was Mosasaur but not 100% sure. i was not present when these fossils were purchased as they were bought as gifts for me in my absence, so the location of where they were found is unknown to me, which I’m sure will make IDing these difficult, so I apologise. Any help whatsoever is appreciated. Thank you! (The ruler used here is 15cm in length)
  7. spinosaurus vertebra?

    What do you guys think? Apparently from Oued Zem, Morocco.
  8. Hi there, The kids had a nice few little finds today at Walton On The Naze, Essex (UK). We got there just as the tide was revealing the beach so had some nice fresh cliff fall and stoney sand to sort through. Rest assured that any help advising what their finds may be will be greeted with great enthusiasm and excitement! (They are 5 and 8 - and very excited to post this here!). Thank you, G.
  9. Found in my yard in Corpus Christi, TX.

    Was digging up a part of the yard with lots of chert scrapers we found and thought I saw something. Mud was wet so wasn't sure. After it dried I found these inside. Is this something or am Crazy?
  10. I've bee looking around at different vertebrae but cannot seem to find a match any ideas? A rough guide in the right direction as to what it looks like it could be from? ventral to dorsal measurment are 12mm anterior to posterior is 15mm and lateral left to right side is 21mm Thanks in advance.
  11. Finds from Big Brook in NJ

    Hi, I just got back from Big Brook in NJ and I came back with some things I need people to identify. vertabrae There are three teeth in the same root. attachments.zip
  12. Process IDs

    Can anyone possibly ID these processes? Are they from different species? I know it's a long shot, but I won't know unless I ask. They're from hell creek. that's all I know about them. The first one is 2.75" tall, and the second is 3.25" tall. That's all the information I have about them.
  13. We found this fossil this afternoon in Big Brook, NJ...trying to figure out what type of fossil bone it is (or hopefully is); any help is appreciated! Thanks!
  14. Found this in a creek on my dad's land while arrow head hunting. Place is located east of Waco. Please help identify.
  15. whatizit?

    Just a casual question on whether this might be a fossil or not. Found at an estate sale. Seems to be a vertebrae of some kind or just some rock coincidentally pentagonal in shape. Cube is 1". Best to all you diggers!
  16. This looks like a vertebra but not sure

    I found this on the Frio river bed by Uvalde, Tx and it looks like a vertabra of some kind. Rather large and it has the common shape and segments. Here’s a picture
  17. Hi, found these today at Speeton, UK. Could anybody tell me what they are, was thinking they may be a possible vert, but I wouldn’t have a clue myself.
  18. Help with ID

    Hello! I have tried looking this up and I can't figure it out. I was hoping someone could help. I found at wrightsville beach, NC. Thank you very much for taking the time to help! Karen
  19. Fossil vertabrae

    I found these and I think they are fossil vertabraes of fish but I am not sure. I found them at a brook in Holmdel NJ and they are pretty small. I think two of them are vertabrae but I am not sure about the other two.
  20. was sent these pictures by a Moroccan dealer i was wondering about it being a sauropod vertebrae since it has a very small foramne, any thoughts or input would be nice and if so could this be from the only described species rebbechasaurus ?
  21. I am thinking of buying this but have no idea if it is just a small vert or juvenile as it's for the kem kem dealer I know it is genuine but there would be no way to put an i.d. on it apart from caudal.
  22. Kem kem fossil bones

    Ok so after doing a lot of buying collecting and digging in the Kem kem area of morocco I have some nice finds that I could use help identifying if that is ok first one to post is a vert unsure of its species though and ultimately did not buy as was expensive but would love to know the rest of the fossils I own need cleaning before taking pictures but when that is done will post here if that is ok with you good folks.
  23. How do I preserve this fossil?

    I acquired this worn metaxytherium floridanum vertabra from a trusted seller, its from the peace river formation of Polk county (Miocene) and its very quickly trying to turn itself to sand, especially in one area. How do I keep this from happening, cheaply and quickly? Here are some pictures from the seller, but I have it with me so I can take more. @Ptychodus04
  24. What have we got here?

    Okey donkey, my sister just brought this to me. Found hiking in a dry riverbed in Paso Robles, California. The area and rock tell me it is Monterey Shale Formation (Miocene). I said it looks to be fish, but the size of the ribs don't seem to fluctuate which would make it a long creature. Now there is an outcropping of Pipefish about 15 miles south of here, could it be one or ? As you can see from my hand, it is about a 1 1/2" long vertibral column. Thanks, caldigger
