  1. Finished this today. Initially I was going to extract the vert and have it without matrix and then I saw the stunning crinoid bits, I love the pentacrinites stars. Found two ribs too so that was a real bonus. While the vert was easy to remove matrix from, it just pinged off, strangely to me at least the larger bone was sticky. There is a bit of matrix still on it but I've added some acrylic ink so it doesn't stand out too much. A light coat of Paraloid (10%ish) was added to all but the vert.
  2. Hello all, Went fossil hunting in Big Brook NJ recently and found what appears to be a small section of vertebra and what I think is a coprolite (not sure though, never found a coprolite before). Any conformation of this would be helpful and if anyone knows what type of bone I found that would be interesting to know. Thanks! Here's a different angle on the bone.
  3. Hi all, I've had this incomplete vertebra on my display shelf for awhile..is it too damaged to determine what dinosaur / group of dinosaurs it may belong too? Sharper pictures or pictures of different angles / details will be taken asap if needed! Thank you! Marc
  4. Hi. I have this Cretaceous dinosaur vertebra from the Isle of Wight, UK. Can anyone identify which part of the spine it came from? Thanks, Daniel
  5. I found the following vertebra from some Permian matrix out of Oklahoma. I'm not sure if it is a fossil or something recent. When I dropped it into some water, it did sink like a rock. Does it look like any Permian vertebrae that you have seen? I also found this interesting dome-shaped item. Looks kind of geological or possibly coral to me, but I would like a 2nd opinion. Thanks.
  6. First, I am clueless as to what this is. I am guessing whale because the vertebral body is concave on one end and convex on the other. It is pure stone, and I am wondering if it could be hadrosaur based on some pictures I saw. Cretaceous is just a guess as most of what I found was from that period. I bought it from the son of a fisherman who found it on the banks of the Kansas River in the Kansas City area. Any help is really appreciated. My dream as a child was to be a paleontologist so this is specially cool to me.
  7. A river find from NE Oklahoma. Any info is appreciated!
  8. From the album Pisces

    2cm. From the Miocene at Calvert Cliffs, MD. Recieved on a trade with Fossil Hound.
  9. I found this yesterday on a Northeast Florida beach! Any ideas?
  10. I found this small fossil specimen recently along Calvert Cliffs, MD. It seems to be missing some portion and I've never seen anything that looks like this. My first guess is that it is some sort of bird vertebra? Any ideas would be appreciated. Daryl.
  11. Dear members of the fossilforum, I recently acquired this caudal vertebra of Camptosaurus dispar. the fossil label is as follows: Camptosaurus dispar, caudal vertebra Upper Jurassic, Morrison Formation From channel deposit near Bone Cabin Quarry, Albany County, Wyoming. Found by employee of Quarry lease owners. The questions I have about this fossil are: - Does anyone know the name of this channel deposit? - Does this vertebra look like it came from the Brushy Basin Member or more like it came from the Salt Wash Member? Thanks in advance for your answers, Sander
  12. Hi there, I bought a hadrosaur caudal vertebra online a while ago and I was wondering what genus/species it is? It is from Southeastern Utah - I'm not sure which formation, the seller didn't say. Just joined up and would appreciate any help or suggestions! Thank you!
  13. I'm calling in the Theropod experts for this one! I'm looking for an ID for this vertebrae, or whether the seller's ID is correct, or wishful thinking. The ID/Location information is below and is exactly as it is shown online by the seller. Since there's SoOoOo much conclusive research on Moroccan Theropods this one should be a breeze . Can this vert truly be labeled as anything more than Theropod indet? Currently the seller is labeling this vert as belonging to Rugops Primus. For size reference this vert is 4cm long. I don't own this fossil so I am currently limited to the couple of side view shots provided by the seller. Information: Cretaceous Theropod (Raptor) Tail (Caudal) Vertebra - Rugops primus Tegana Formation, Aptian Kem Kem Basin, Morocco, North Africa Creataceous - 100 Million Years Old
  14. Any help would be very appreciated on this vertebra found in the Brazos River in Texas. Many thanks for looking and replying!
  15. I found this big vertebra and several other smaller ones on the Brazos river.
  16. Dear members of the fossil forum. Some time ago I bought several vertebrae from the Turonian layers of Goulmima, Morocco. 5 marine vertebrates have been found at that site until now. These are Tethysaurus (mosasaur), Thililua (polycotylid), Manemergus (polycotylid), Libonectes (plesiosaur) and Brachauchenius (pliosaur). I want to know if I have a fossil of each of these 4 groups from Goulmima. Therefore I need to know how the vertebrae look of each group. I know the difference between mosasaur vertebrae and the other 3 groups, but which differences exist between the other three? Thanks in advance, Sander
  17. Dear members of the fossil forum, I have bought this vertebra with limited information, and I was hoping that someone here might know more about this vertebra, as in what genus and species it is, and perhaps a better defined findspot. It is said to have come from the Austin Chalk Formation, Santonian, Texas. the seller did not know more about it, nor did he know from whom he acquired it. for some reason none of the vertebrae I have seen from the austin chalk have got this colour, and also it seems that from the santonian of texas no plesiosaurs have been described yet? in older and younger layers i see Libonectes, Elasmosaurus and Styxosaurus, but they come from Turonian and Campanian layers. Perhaps someone here can help me, or knows a researcher who is specialised in plesiosaurs (elasmosaurs?)? Thanks in advance, Sander
  18. Here's a good sized chunk of a vert from the Brazos River. Just wondering if there's anything diagnostic here.
  19. Went out again this past weekend to try to find more pieces to the large fossil I found in San Pedro and found what I believe (taking the wildest of guesses) may be a piece of a Whale Vertebra? Not sure this is considered a fossil but thought I'd ask all the more educated (than me) individuals on this forum. Since y'all are the experts! Thanks again in advance for any input. (If these photos are too dark I can post better ones later.) -Amy

  22. Any help on the identity and position of this small (scale bar = 1 mm) vertebra from the Hell Creek Formation (Late Cretaceous) of S. Dakota, would be greatly appreciated. It looks like much of the neural arch and processes are gone. The centrum is a bit more dorso-ventrally flattened as compared to the turtle vertebra I posted the other day, and the ventral side (?) of the centrum has sinuses unlike the turtle vert (perhaps due to wear / breakage?).
  23. The attached photos show a vertebra, probably from a dinosaur (theropod according to a very experienced collector, but no reference given) or crocodile from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco. The bone is 9,5 cm long and 9,0 cm tall. Any help to identify it to family, genus or species will be most appreciated.
  24. Could someone help me with the identification and position of this vertebra. I was thinking it was procoelous and maybe crocodylomorph? Scale bar = 1mm.
  25. From the album Calvert Cliffs - 3/7/17

    I'm not sure what type of vertebra this is as it doesn't resemble a whale or dolphin vertebra. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that it's a bird. Maybe someone can help me identify it.
