  1. Hi all, I recently decided to buy the below plesiosaur vertebra after having seen it for a long, long time. It dates to the Callovian of the Oxford Clay and was found at Peterborough. I suspect it may be attributed to Muraenosaurus leedsi, as it comes from a cryptoclidid plesiosaur, but is both larger and more elongate that the typical Oxford Clay Cryptoclidus vertebrae I'm familiar with. Supposedly coming from an old collection, it has a blackened exterior that doesn't cover the entire piece, with the more common buff colour visible underneath. As such, I expecte
  2. Afternoon everybody. I found this in Feb 2020, after Storm Dennis, on my same south Suffolk beach. I've looked at many vertebrae images online and in books, and none seem quite right. It looks closest to a seal...? But that doesn't seem right. Thanks for any guidance!

    Odd Lance fm. Vertebra

    I found this odd vertebra in Wyoming's Lance fm. over the summer. I was told by a guide that it may be a turtle cervical vertebra, but I wanted to see what other forum members thought. It's about 1.5 cm long and around 1.3 cm in width.
  4. I have been meaning to post my Calvert Cliffs mystery bones for awhile, and I keep finding more, so I finally took some pics to share. These are all Miocene finds collected on different trips over the last 12 months. I would be grateful for any help with ID.

    Sea fossils id

    Hello! I'm asking for another person who found these fossils in southern Sweden (Kristianstad). There is sites around this region which have fossils from the cretaceous period so Im thinking it is plausible that these also are cretaceous. I've numbered each fossil to make it easier to talk about them and to id what type of fossils they are.

    Matoaka 1-30-21

    I made it out to Matoaka yesterday before today’s snowstorm and had a successful Maryland Miocene hunt, despite a large amount of ice obscuring the shoreline. (I won’t complain about the cold after @RuMert’s trip report yesterday. ) I found an unusually high number of cetacean vertebrae and cookies (epiphyses), several Ecphoras, shark teeth, and some other nice finds. This Carcharodon hastalis tooth was waiting for me when I arrived on the beach. And this cookie was just a few feet away. Off to a good start! Heading north, the ice got progressiv
  7. Hi ya'll! I had my first real break as a newbie recently and finally reached my all time goal of finding my first shark tooth this weekend. This was at the waco pit, which I (think) is at a confluence of the del rio formation and the eagle ford formation. Over the course of several afternoons, 3 more shark teeth followed, as well as a vertebrae to wrap up a nice trip that also drew up some pyratized ammonites and shells. The daily collection limit of two per person meant that my brother and I were able to really zone in to hot spots with what we wanted rather than being
  8. Howdy! How do you tell a Shark Vertebra from a Ray Vertebra? I can't seem to find much info online about Ray Verts. I came across (and vaguely remembered reading on a post) that ray vertebrae are more rectangular....is that true? Here are a few vertebrae that I think might be ray and if I could get a positive yay or nay on that.....I'd be very grateful! These are from Post Oak Creek in Texas - Cretaceous Era Size 4mm Size 3 mm

    part vertebra croc?

    I have this piece, crocodile?, which I think is a part of a vertebra?. It looks like the are zygapophyses visable and I think the grove should be the neuralcanal. But I am not sure, con someone shine a light on it? Measurements: 70x60x36mm Thank you

    Help with UK Dinosaur/Reptile Vertebra ID

    I'm trying to help someone ID this vertebra found in Gloucester, UK a few years ago. It's from a Jurassic site and I'm pretty sure it's a theropod vertebra but was wondering if anyone on the forum could help out? I have a theropod tooth from the same place which I might post soon in the hope of narrowing down an ID too. Thanks in advance!

    Another UK sauropod vert?

    Hello, I'm more hopeful about this one. It looks different than the other verts that are for sale which are usually misidentified plesiosaur/pliosaur verts. Plus, while it has a couple of holes at the bottom--they are nowhere near as distinct as others. It is from Abingdon, Kimmeridge Clay. Dimensions are 6.5 x 5 x 7 Now, I haven't seen Sauropod verts listed for sale which are this shape--which half makes me think it's something else entirely. But, then again, most sauropod verts from the UK are misidentified so I can't really judge with others listed for sa

    Vertebra ID

    Hello, I found this vertebra on the beach this morning in Charleston, SC and was hoping someone could help ID it. My initial guess was a dolphin vertebra? Thanks in advance!

    New Here! ID Fossil Vertebra approx. 8cm

    Hello! I'm new to the forum and while I have been interested in fossils since I was young I didn't really start collecting more seriously until recent years so I'm still a complete novice. I received this vertebrae in a trade so I'm not sure where it's from but it's approximately 8cm at the widest point. I took some of the images with the measuring tape in the picture but it only shows inches. I posted these on facebook and someone was kind enough to help me identify another piece but nobody has had said anything about this one yet. Any assistance is appreciated! Thank you so much!

    titanoboa vertebra

    It's been nearly two years since last I posted, but I'm back with one of my latest creations, a lifesize replica of a bone from Titanoboa cerrejonensis. The smaller bone next to it is a vertebra from a(n estimated) 10-12-foot anaconda which I used for reference. Enjoy!
  15. Hello! This is a very worn, very eroded ornithischian vertebra from the Lance Formation of Wyoming. It was in three pieces that I recently glued back together, I found all the pieces wrapped in foil together in the box I brought back from the trip. It’s from my trip there this summer, though I don’t remember collecting this specific bone. My immediate thought based on size and shape is Thescelosaurus, though I have seen some small Hadrosaur verts that look kind of like this one. I just hope it isn’t too worn/eroded that no guesses at an ID can be made!
  16. Hi all, Something different for today. I discovered this vertebra in the surf at Matoaka Cabins roughly 2 years ago. For those of you that don’t know, the rocks here are Miocene in age and preserve a nearshore marine environment. Cetacean remains are common, but other mammals (esp terrestrial) are not. Originally I thought it was a turtle vert, but now I’ve realized that it’s mammalian and possibly terrestrial in origin. It passed the burn test, by the way. My thought is that it is from a small mammal’s tail, as it closely resembles other mammalian caudal vertebrae. I’ve includ

    Portugal theropod vert

    Hi, I'd quite like this. Advertised as an unidentified theropod vert from Portugal (Lorinha formation). 5.3 cm x 5.2 x 4.5 cm. Is it theropod as opposed to croc or other dinosaur? Any thoughts would be great. Thanks
  18. Hi, I am interested in this. Sold here, seller says its ok to have a second pair of eyes look it over. From Holzmaden. Slab is 50cm. Jaw is 14cm. Seller thinks jaw has been added. My main concern is have the vertebra been added too? Thanks

    Whitby area Vertebra

    Braved the cold today to have a long walk around Runswick Bay and beyond. Best find was this vertebra, found in a slab of ammonites. Needs a little more prep to get the shale off. Any idea if it’s Ichthyosaur or something else?

    Hell Creek vertebra

    Hello! I got this dinosaur vertebra from Hell Creek (Montana) a few years back. It was sold to me as a Triceratops vertebra but I don't know how that ID was made. It's not in the best condition (has moss(?) on it and has been broken and then glued back together) but it is about 13-14 centimetres across so it is clearly from a big dinosaur, but there were plenty of those in Hell Creek (even two large ceratopsids - Triceratops and Torosaurus). Looking for any insight into how an ID could be made here and if Triceratops (or even just ceratopsid) is correct

    Mystery Vertebrae

    I found these two vertebrae nearby each other in the Dinosaur Park Formation. I originally thought it might be Champsosaur, but after closer examination I ruled that out. I then thought salamander, but the neural canal on mine is too small. Finally, I thought it might be a lizard (like Paleosaniwa), but the vert itself is more slender then a lizard vert. So, I’m out of ideas. I’m wondering if it may be from a juvenile theropod, but I really can’t tell. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! *should note on the vert with the majority of the process preserved that the ar

    A mystery vertebra

    Massive longshot with this one because I literally have no info other than it being a dinosaur vert. The seller bought a bunch of antiques and collectables and this was included listed as just "dinosaur vertebra". Some of the other fossils he has listed are clearly Moroccan--Mosasaur, Onchopristis etc, but this one definitely doesn't look Moroccan to me. SO, getting an ID is a massive longshot, but perhaps someone can recognize it and narrow it down a bit. I messaged seller for more info, but ... that's it unfortunately.

    Florida vertebra find help

    My daughter found this vertebra on the beach today while we were looking for shark teeth (at Mikler Beach, just north of St Augustine). Any ideas on a more specific attribution? Thanks!

    Vertebra, Shark, fish, or gator?

    Went hunting yesterday. Gorgeous day. Fast currents, deep water that is forecast to get deeper and faster by Monday. Mostly small , broken shark teeth, but there were 4 that were fun to find. A partial Sloth tooth, heavily worn at the chewing surface. I am thinking Harlan's. I found it in the 2nd sieve , which kept me at that location for the next 6 hours. Note the heavy wear on the left side of the chewing surface. A couple of hours later, I just noted a nice Equus canine on the edge of the screen and grabbed it before it slid back into the depths.
