  1. Unknown vertebra from SC

    Hi all, took a trip to Hilton Head island, SC this year. No luck for shark teeth - but I did dredge this guy up. Doesn’t look like a shark vert. It’s around 1/2 inch long. Any ideas? My apologies for the poor pictures.
  2. Whale Vertebra ?

    I believe it is possibly a whale vertebra. It is light for it's size. Found inland Venice, FL in a dirt pile. Image 7414 shows flat surface of fossil. The remaining images are lateral views.
  3. It was initially being sold as plesiosaur when I inquired about it, but seller says it was mislabelled and is pliosaur--which, if accurate, even better! But I am dubious over Pliosaur ID because I don't think I've ever seen any Morocco pliosaur fossils up for sale. But, if anyone can take a look and let me if A) It looks legit and B ) Whether you think Pliosaur or plesiosaur is accurate, that would be great. 80 million years old, from Morocco. 17 inches along the straight edge and 10 inches along the bottom. Thanks for any help!
  4. Marine animal tooth?

    I just joined this group. I found this today in the surf of Holden Beach, NC. Just hoping someone can identify it for me
  5. My boys found this the other day. It does not look like a whale or porpoise vert, I don't think. Before posting a trip report, I was hoping someone could tell me what it is.
  6. Vertebra found on Daupine Island

    Greetings Guys ! This is a vertebra bone that I found on the beach at Daupine Island , Alabama. It appears to be a partial vertebrae, with the transverse process and inferior facet intact. As a Chiropractor, I know vertebra, but not much knowledge on comparative anatomy. Do any of ya'll have any thoughts as to what this belonged to? Thanks for your thoughts. Joe
  7. Mosasaur vert --Morocco

    I don't have a Mosasaur vert, so hope this is accurate. Possible Prognathodon. Is Mosasaur accurate, or a chunky plesiosaur or croc? Any help appreciated.
  8. Got out with my kids to Calvert Cliffs over the weekend for some attempted crabbing, general beachcombing and fossil collecting. Water was pretty clear without a lot of wave action, so patience was required to find anything decent in all the sand. We also had to keep our eyes out for the abundant sea nettles that have come in. Anyway, we had good success, with a couple of really nice snaggleteeth I pulled out of the wash about 10 minutes and 10 feet apart (two of a kind!). I had just been talking to a couple of collectors right in that spot lamenting poor hunting that day--so right time, right place. One of my kids also grabbed a really nice croc tooth, but it has only the front half. The highlight for me, though, was "making my own luck." I was poking around a few clay balls in the surf, as I have read about here in FF, and came across one with a really nice shark vert coming out of it. It was quick work with my screwdriver to set it free--my biggest shark vert by far and in pristine condition. (It was worth getting nailed a little by a teensy sea nettle I spotted too late--distracted!) We were lucky that we dodged a wicked thunderstorm just before heading home, but it was really cool watching the whole thing far out over the bay. I also found a tiny tooth that I can't seem to ID, so if anybody can help, I'd appreciate it. The best finds are below (minus a big piece of whale vert I forgot to include). Enjoy the pix!
  9. Mystery Vert, Calvert Cliffs

    Hi all, I found this strange vertebra today in a small creek that flows into the Chesapeake Bay. If it's a fossil, it is from the Calvert Formation. It's unlike anything I've seen before, and certainly not a cetacean vert, so that begs the question: what is it? I have not done the burn test on it yet to confirm it as a fossil, but can anyone identify it based on morphology? I believe it to be from a large terrestrial animal, but I'd like an expert/experienced opinion. Thank you in advance!
  10. Kem Kem Pterosaur vertebra?

    I have my doubts--aren't verts with the sort of ball-shaped end like this usually crocodile? It's been sold as a vertebra from Sirrocopterex. 3.5 cm in length. I'm suspecting croc, I'd love to be proved wrong though--a pterosaur vert would be a nice piece. Thanks for the help.
  11. Fish vertebra

    Is it possible to identify fish by this vertebra? Scale - mm. Western Ukraine, most probably Miocene. Thanks!
  12. Vertebra

    Sloth vertebra im pretty sure
  13. Kem Kem Vertebra

    Hello, this is been sold as unidentified Kem Kem bone. I'm guessing crocodile? But anyone knows more specific or differrnt that would be great. It is 5cm long. Thanks
  14. Unknown vertebra

    Hi all. Found this vertebra the other day in Greens Mill Run (Eastern NC). I immediately thought this one looked different than any other vertebra I have found. I initially thought reptile, but cannot find a good match in any reference or from anything in my collection. I would appreciate your thoughts.
  15. Hi Friends, A few months ago I spent a few days’ time on the North Sulfur River and I’ve added some potential coprolites to my collection and wanted to share what I’ve found so that maybe it will help someone be able to identify similar finds there. I picked up anything that I thought looked fossilized and after a few trips I had quite a bit to go through and attempt to identify. Subsequent trips I picked up less and less because I knew what to look for. #1, 2, and 3 are all from the North Sulfur River – Ozan formation. #1 was found in the redzone, while #2 and #3 were found loose in the river bed. I'll start with #1 then add the other two in subsequent posts. #1: Top view #1: Bottom view: This one seemed highly likely to me and has white matrix around lots of black fossilized material contained in the redzone matrix. I happened to tap it after removing it from the surrounding matrix as it seemed like a concretion and found a small tooth inside (orange arrow). I decided to prep it out and find out what else I could discover within. After a few hours picking away through the 'poop' like matrix I had found a vertebra and parts of a shell as well as a considerable amount of unidentifiable fossilized matter. I think I was right about this one. #1: Identifiable finds. Left to right: Tooth, most likely fish., Vertebra, two gastropod shell fragments. Scale marks in mm. #2: Seems likely to me, but not sure. It could just be the remains of a fish or something and not necessarily a coprolite. Top view: Bottom View: More to follow...
  16. Plesiosaur?

    Hi all! What do you think of this vertebra? It was found long ago, comes probably from marine Kimmeridgian-Tithonian outcrops in the Volga basin, Russia. Doesn't look exactly like plesiosaur, but what else?
  17. Flat elongated Kem Kem bone ID

    I've got this long flat bone from the Kem Kem with a wide base, it was presumably attached to a larger bone. It also seems like it's missing the tip. I thought it might be a small spinosaurid neural spine but it has a weird lump of bone on one side so it seems like it is something else. Is this lump a muscle scar? Or a healed wound? And could this bone be an odd spinosaurid neural spine or is it something entirely else?
  18. Sawfish vertebra

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    I erroneously identified this as a shark centrum, however it doesn't have any foramina on the lateral surface, so it must be a sawfish.
  19. Vertebra

    Hello! Is it normal such hole in vertebra? And if its possible to identify it? Scake - mm. Western Ukraine, most probably Miocene. Thanks in advance!
  20. Mammoth or Mastodon?

    I am assuming this is a mammoth or mastodon vertebra. It is well mineralized weighing just over five pounds. I purchased it from an artifact collector in Nebraska but have no idea if it was found in that state. If mammoth or mastodon is it possible to tell which elephant species it belongs to?
  21. Small Iguanodon vert?

    Hello, What do people think of this? Being sold as Iguanodon tail vert from Brook Bay IoW. 2.74cm by 1.9cm. Thanks
  22. Vertebrae ID (Kem-Kem)

    Hi! I recently got 4 vertebras from Morocco (Kem-Kem beds). They told me that one of them (the smallest one, nº4) is a theropod vertebra but I don't know what kind of theropod it comes from (or even if it is possible to know). And I'm completely lost with the other 3 (number 1 - 3), I don't know if they are Spinosaurus, crocodile or even a mosasaur... Can anyone help me? Thanks in advance!
  23. I have a 20 year relationship with the little beach at westmoreland state park, and despite the fact that it was crawling with moms, dads, and kids today, it still gave up some nice pieces.
  24. Creek Cookies

    Can anyone help me identify this "cookie"? We think it is a vertebra. It was found in southern Maryland in the Miocene clay formation.
  25. Help Identifying Hell Creek Bones

    I've just cleaned up a big batch of Hell Creek bones and I'm struggling to ID a few of them. I have some ideas as to a few, but others I'm clueless (and I'm sure some won't be able to be ID'd beyond indeterminate dino/reptile bone). These four are all pretty big. The largest, second from the right, is just over 6.5 inches. I've attached a picture of that one before I repaired it as it has very thick walls. That bone and second from the left are very heavy for their size, so I'm assuming they're theropod (probably leg bones). I haven't a clue with the other two, but they're an odd shape.
