  1. England Vert ID’s

    Listed as stegosaur From Weymouth, England and would like to know if ID is correct. These are the only pictures provided.
  2. Found on Myrtle Beach, Jan 3, 2020. This tiny round fossil is smooth on the top, perhaps a quarter inch thick, and has an unusual indentation on the bottom. I immediately thought some kind of fish vertebra, but that smoothness at the top stops me. Not sure why a vertebra would have such a smooth side. Thank you! Paula
  3. Hello everyone! I just received a dinosaur vertebra from the Upper Jurassic of Cambelas, Torres Vedras in Portugal, and I was wondering if it would be possible to identify it any further than "dinosaur". Perhaps @Troodon and @LordTrilobite could give their opinions? Here are some photos: Side photos: Top/bottom photos: Thanks so much for your help! (And thanks to @Vieira for the fossil!) Monica
  4. Greetings, I recently bought a fossil vertebra from a moroccan seller who claimed it was a Plesiosaurus vertebra, and through I did not believe him I made a deal with him and I got the fossil for a cheap price. My guess it that it belongs to an Otodus chark or an Enchodus fish, is a quite big vertebrae anyway... What do you think? Thank you very much in advance.
  5. For the past few summers I've been collecting from a late Campanian concretion horizon of the Bearpaw formation that is particularly rich in marine vertebrate fossils. These calcareous sandstone concretions preserve fossils exceptionally well, and the western interior seaway ecosystem represented by this particular site is quite vast - ranging from marine reptiles, to a variety of fish, cephalopods, and crustaceans. However, because these fossils are quite brittle, removing them from the matrix cannot be done without significant damage, and it can often be difficult to identify them in cross-section (also, I don't want to damage any significant finds before they're passed on for study). So anyway, here's two that remain unidentified... 1. Unknown vertebra. Quite large sized, and only partially concreted. You'll notice that while the concave gaps between the processes and body of the vertebra are infilled with sediment, that you can still make out the shape reasonably well. I'm hoping that this can be diagnostic - the two main contenders being either a mosasaur or elasmosaur: 2. Unknown bone that's a little more tricky to pin down, but I'm hoping that like the previous example, something can be inferred by the shape of the concretion and the bone material that sticks out beyond it (which appears as a buff, rusty orange). Notice also how parts of the bone appear to be hollow and are infilled with sediment: Thanks.
  6. Ornithischian Vertebra

    Hey everyone, recently came across this partial vertebra from the Kimmeridge Clay online, apparently collected south of Oxford. It measures 9.5cm x 8.5cm. The seller tentatively identified it as a Stegosaurid based on the internal pattern visible on the polished side, and subsequently assigned it to Dacentrurus, since it's the only Stegosaurid fitting the time and location. I tried to find more information on these supposed patterns indicative of Stegosaurs without much success, so I'd like to ask: › Is the vertebra actually identifiable on a family level? › If so, what are the defining characteristics and where could I read up about them? Thanks for your help!
  7. DdWhat bone is this? It looks like the vertebra that attaches to the skull, which I thought was the basioccipital bone, but looking it up i see that the first vertebra is called the atlas, not basioccipital, which has me very confused? I looked a few places and haven’t found the connection between the 2(no pun intended:) Is the basioccipital bone PART of the atlas? I didn’t think there was anything between the skull and vertebrae. As far as the bone in question here, this IS the vertebra that connects directly to the skull, right??? ..whichever one It.
  8. Unknown Pleistocene bone from Jax

    I found an unidentified fossil on the beach here in Ponte Vedra, just south of Jacksonville. Previously I have found other Ice Age mammal bones and teeth, including a Glyptodont scute, a horse tooth and part of a mammoth tusk as well as fish and reptile material. I’m no anatomist but based on the bilateral symmetry this looks to me like it comes from the spine or tail of something. Actually I’m put in mind of the bony knob on the end of the tail of an Ankylosaur, though I’m obviously not suggesting it is that. Can anyone weigh in? Thanks in advance...u
  9. Spino caudal vert ?

    Hello everybody, i’m new on this forum. I bought this vert in south morocco (the kem kem). The seller told me that is a spino vert but the spine seems too long and weird. I need your opinion.
  10. Opalized Vertebra?

    New possible acquisition but need more info. This was obtained in a trade and originally from Lightning Ridge Australia. It was claimed to be dinosaur vertebra but who knows? It is still unprepped and has matrix that needs to be removed which will further improve the look. Two piece, one is 1.5 inch and the second is 1 inch. There are sections where it looks like the fossil did not completely opalized. Any thoughts? @Troodon - help? Thank you all.
  11. Pleistocene vertebra

    Is there enough of this vertebra for an id? Found in Brazos River Pleistocene gravel in SE Texas.
  12. Bone Valley Vertebra, Peace River FL

    I found this nicely-fossilized vertebra in the Peace River. It's broken, but there might be enough features left to ID it. It has a "Y" shaped imprint on the ends. Does anyone know what critter this came from? These verts confuse me when I try to ID them and I am never sure. Any help would be appreciated.
  13. Vertebrae ID

    Hi people! I have something to show you, it's from last years fossil hunt. I went last year to a beautiful Cave in Zabrega, (Paraćin) to try to find some pleistocene fossils. The Cave itself is not so deep but it's very wide and very big. I did found some bones and teeth which are half recent and half fossilized i guess? I found also pottery so it could be archeological but idk honestly. I'm here to show you my "biggest" find - it's a vert. not sure if that belongs to a deer or something else. You decide Thanks for help. Darko
  14. Theropod dinosaur vertebra?

    Hello. I got this dinosaur vertebra from Nemegt Formation. Size 7cm long. It seems like a theropod caudal vertebra. But I don't know exactly what species it is.
  15. I have this Arctodus simus vertebra for trade from Florida. It measures 6 inches wide and has some material to hold the processes together. I will trade for GOOD Portuguese dino material, but I will consider other options as well.
  16. Morocco - theropod or croc?

    Hi, I recently acquired this eroded, agatized vert, collected in Morocco. It was sold as a theropod, but a friend thinks it’s a crocodilian. Is there any way to tell? Thanks!
  17. Vertebra, vertebrae or I give up

    Today in north texas I found this piece that appears to be fish vertebrae (possibly 2?)… what do y’all think
  18. Mosasaur bone clump

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    A cool Moroccan mosasaur bone pile I acquired, sadly the matrix is so soft the piece broke in transit, but thankfully the splits missed all but 1 smaller bone. I'm considering just removing them from the matrix, and maybe mounting them in the same positions again, but I haven't decided yet. *more info to follow
  19. 2 dimetrodon vertebrae & basioccipital

    From the album Permian era fossils

    Basioccipital about .5" large vertebra about 3" small vertebra about 1.5" *more info to be posted
  20. Unknown mammal vertebra

    This was a creek find in Central Illinois. We don't know how old or really anything about it. Bison remains turn up somewhat frequently but it looks like maybe horse? probably modern? I apologize for the difficult to read scale. It is a six inch scale, that's all I have at work unfortunately. Thank you for any help.
  21. Nothosaur vertebra

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    A 3.5 cm long Nothosaur vertebra from a triassic "Bonebed" in a quarry in southern Germany (Baden-Württemberg). Two more pictures:
