  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Pleistocene vertebra

    Is there enough of this vertebra for an id? Found in Brazos River Pleistocene gravel in SE Texas.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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:
  15. Spinosaurus bones?

    Can anyone identify these as spinosaurus bones. Ive come across these pictures with very little information, other than apparently spinosaur bones from Morocco. I think the verts look clearly spinosaur, but I'm not very familiar with spinosaur long bones, although they immediately struck me as looking a little off. Maybe them being flattened is throwing me off. This seemed like a perfect opportunity for not just help learning spino long bones, but also while dealing with details like that, which can interfere with "standard" identification. In the 4th picture, the fossil on the bottom right--is that a vert with a long bone next to it? It's positioned like the sail of the vert, and seems to be attached to the vert but something about the bone looks wrong for part of the sail, to me...maybe that it looks like it's rounded along the length's edge, which I thought was not how they were shaped(if I'm wrong, I could also be just picturing dimetrodon sail spines...well, or just plain wrong, of course)? ...As well as looking just like the other long bones present. Thanks for any and all help!
  16. Vertebra Bone

    We were in Milsap, Texas floating the Brazos river (off of Hwy 20 and 281) My husband thought he stepped on a large rock, but it was this! I can't figure out what it comes from. I looked at most livestock vertebrae and it didn't seem to match up. Very curious what we found! Please help! :-)
  17. Hi guys! I haven't been on TFF for AGES but am getting back in the groove. My question for y'all today is regarding these fossils. They are Pleistocene cave bear fossils from Romania. I bought these as juvenile intervertebral disks. Is that what these are? They are much lighter and led dense than verts. I'm curious.
  18. Vertebra id

    Besides of the tooth and several other bones I also found some this vertebra: I am really not sure if its a mammal vert or something. Is it even fossil? I have my doubts.... Its from the area of Ijmuiden (Netherlands), so its probably from the Holocene. Can anybody help on the id? Again perhaps @LordTrilobite or @Harry Pristis ?
  19. vertebra

    I’ve always wondered what kind of critter this vertebra was from. I’m assuming bison. I thought it was interesting because of what look like cut marks on the top of the spine. Do you think this is evidence of butchering? Thanks for any input
  20. Vertebra Prep Questions

    I would like to try to prep a whale vertebra I found, but I have a few questions before diving into the preservation part. My questions come in 2 parts: Paraloid suggestions and matrix removal questions. Paraloid: For something this big, should I attempt to find a container and dunk the whole thing in the paraloid solution, or should I use a brush to go around the whole surface? Any suggestions for the ratio of paraloid to acetone? 1:10? 1:20? I've read different ratios thrown around, but I'm not sure what is best for which situation. Matrix removal: There is a large section of material on the under side of the vertebra that I'm unsure about removing. This rectangular section seems to be much harder than the rest of easily removable soil. Even though it transitions from reddish to tan in color, it is all the same hardness. Should I even attempt to remove it, or just leave it? It's clearly not part of the original vertebra, but I'm not sure what it even is. Thanks a lot for any help and/or suggestions!
