  1. Reindeer vertebra

    From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A reindeer, Rangifer tarandus, vertebra found on the Zandmotor, about 40'000 years old ("Mammoth-steppe" period, in the Late Pleistocene). It seems to have been bleached by the sun (most bones on the Zandmotor are darker than this).

  4. Flags Pond - What Did I Come From?

    Hello all, Went to Flags Pond yesterday and found a piece of vertebra and possibly a tooth(?) I am having a difficult time identifying. For the vertebra, what species did it come from? For the second item, is it a tooth? If so, what species did it come from? Thanks, Shauna
  5. Found on Myrtle Beach. I'm told most bones here would be dugong But the coloring and look of this one is strange Can't decide if this is an axis vertebra, or just a rock with a borehole in it. Thoughts?
  6. Hi, definitivly need help with this opinions welcome! Is this fake or different from what it is claimed to be: Part of Skull Plate or vertebra pachycephalosaurus. I can Not identify such a bone on fotos from Fossils from this genus Thanks to all
  7. Fossil vertebra?

    Hi everyone, I found this bone on the beach (mediterranean sea), it's really heavy, really like a stone and not like a bone. I suppose it could be a fossil vertebra of a big animal, it's similar to some cranial vertebrae (atlas) of cetaceans. What do you think could be? In the area of finding there are marine formations from pliocene to pleistocene. Dimensions: 11x5x3 cm.
  8. NSR fish vertebra

    From the album North Sulfur River

    Unknown fish vertebra from the North Sulfur River in Ladonia, TX.
  9. NSR Shark Vertebra

    From the album North Sulfur River

    NSR Shark vertebra. Species unknown. Found December 2018.
  10. NSR Shark vert

    Hi yall, just posting to get to where I can create a gallery. This is a nice, but slightly crushed shark vertebra from the north sulfur river in ladonia, tx. It was found very close to the fossil park entrance. Species unknown.
  11. Can anybody tell what this vertebra is from? I believe it's from Kem Kem. *would this be a rib cage vert?
  12. Vertebra fossil

    Hi! I found this fossil near the Harpeth River in Nashville. I located it near the foundation of a long abandoned 19th century building. It appears to be a vertebra. It is about 5 inches across. Does anyone know what it could possibly be from? Thanks!
  13. Hi I hope you are well. I need your help to identify this vertebra, I bought it in a garage sale in San Antonio, TX, it was covered with sediments that I peel out. Thank you for your help.
  14. Came across this on the Internet, thought it might help for TFF members with vertebrae in their collections. "Not all vertebrae are the same! One way of classifying vertebrae is based on the ends of the vertebra body. The ends can be concave, convex, flat, saddle-like, etc. Check out the diversity in vertebrae below!"
  15. Lance fm Vertebra

    Hi all, wondering if you could help me on this vertebra's identity, I found it in Wyoming's lance formation this past summer. I think it might be amphibian but I'm not sure. It's about a quarter of an inch long.
  16. Vertebra - fossil or bone?

    Hello, I am reaching out to you all to see what everyone thinks! How do you tell if a bone has fossilized or not? I fished this vertebra out of the Red Deer River this summer, buried in the silt, very near to Dinosaur Provincial Park. It is quite heavy, which makes me wonder if it's fossilized? Does the dark color suggest fossil? I was thinking just a big ole' cow or elk vertebra, maybe not that old? But I would be remiss if I didn't pose the question to you all who see these things all the time! Any input would be greatly appreciated!
  17. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 2 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Posidonia Shale). Some more pictures: I personally like the color on this one!
  18. I prepared this small vertebra, width about 15 mm. The vertebra is upside down in the matrix and I think the centrum is missing. It is found in Winterswijk, Netherlands. It is from the Musschelkalk rock formation from the Middle Triassic.
  19. Cetacean vertebra

    From the album Fossil Collection

  20. In this thread I wanna share some fossils from Holzmaden, which I found partly years ago but prepped recently with my new tools. I will not show only bones but also belemnites and other fossils from Holzmaden. All the finds are from the quarry Kromer. Hopefully I will be able to extend this thread step by step! So for today I want to show three bones from the posidionia shale from Holzmaden. Firstly this 3 cm long Ichthyosaur vertebra. Here is a picture of the unprepped piece: As you can see there was only the cross section visible so it was a kinda hard work. I think until now the prep took about 2 hours and I will probably prep it a bit more... but here is a picture of the current state of the vertebra: I am very satisfied with the result until now! Especially because I didn't lost too much of the fossil material in the areas where I had to glue it.
  21. Lyme Regis Trip

    Hi All, Spent a few days down on the Devon/Dorset coast with family. Plan was to fish and fossil hunt over the period. Got to Lyme Regis nice and early on the Friday and still didn't beat the crowds. Found a few Pyrite Ammonites (of which the photos i will attach later) but nothing else of major significance. Went back on the Saturday and had a rummage around in the loose material on the beach slightly away from the crowds. Found a single Ichthyosaur vertebra under a large rock, then a small piece of paddle bone in a rock pool, and lastly and my favourite half a larger vertebra with other bones in matrix just laying out in the open!! To say i was happy is an understatement! It was very busy down there so i think i got very lucky to find these. Apologies there is no scale on them. Hopefully my hand will suffice! I am planning to get the larger find prepped to remove some of the matrix, if anyone can recommend someone in the UK who can do it that would be brilliant, please send me a message. Thanks for reading.
  22. Ichthyosaur vertebra

    From the album Holzmaden

    A 1.2 cm long Ichthyosaur caudal vertebra from the quarry Kromer in Holzmaden (Posidionia shale, Lower Jurassic). Some more pictures: The prep took about 1 hour and I used an air pen and a sandblasting machine.
  23. Mammal vertebra from the ZM

    Hi all, I found this fossil vertebra near the Zandmotor (Netherlands) last weekend. It's from the last Ice Age, late Pleistocene (around 40'000 years old). There is the possibility that it is middle Pleistocene (around 600'000 years old), but that possibility is very slim. So it's (most likely) a fossil vertebra from one of the typical megafaunal Ice Age critters that roamed Europe alongside the mammoths, woolly rhino's, etc. For now, I am thinking it could be from some deer species, but I am really not sure. What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance, Max
  24. Kem Kem vertebrae ID help

    Howdy! New to TFF, been around fossils and minerals my whole life, so not a total noob. I've got a few Kem Kem verts that I can't get narrowed down any further, so thought I'd ask some experts to see what I can come up with. These two look like juvenile theropod cervical to me; I'm no expert, but what I googl'd looked right. Anyone have positive ID on them? Edit: OK, only 4mb per post, and I have no idea how to shrink pictures, so I'll make a few posts to get all the pix up.
  25. Vertebra ID?

    Found in southeast Texas, Harris County, Brazos River. Any idea what this might be from?
