  1. Hello everyone so we have this Vertebra here from Taouz, Morocco, KemKem. It's just described as a Dinosaur Vertebrae, no further ID. Really not sure what to make of it. Is it a Franken-Vertebra? Just not good enough prepped? A big cluster of glue and different bone fragments? Just very bad weathered? It is at a reasonable price I'm willing to pay even if it turns out the be just a Franken-Vertebra while I work on it. Just to get some training on prepping. But I would love to hear if it is worth to spend any money on it. And while we're at it: And ID possible? Is it Dinosaur? Maybe Theropod? Or Croc? Or just not possible to ID? Unfortunately there are no other pictures available. Size is 91 mm x 76 mm (3.58 inches x 2.99 inches) Any help is welcome. Thank you!
  2. Vertebra ID

    Hello brand new member hello everyone! I have been out collecting about 10 times this year in SW Florida found this today, was pretty excited to pull this out of a creek off the peace River . It's about 75mm wide and 75mm tall (3") it's pretty light weight for it's size . Thank you if you can help identify.
  3. Wanted to share my latest acquisition. Decades ago a friend of mine found this triceratops dorsal vertebra in Montana. There was evidence of post-mortem predation by a nanotyrannus. A tooth broke off and embedded in the centrum. Enjoy!
  4. Theropod caudal vertebra?

    Hello, this spring break I found this vertebra in late Campanian sediments from southern Coahuila, Mexico. It comes from the Late Campanian, Cerró del Pueblo Formation, around 73-71 million years. This was found along with marine and terrestrial fossils. It is about 1 cm long (3/8) of an inch, 1 cm in width, and 1.1 cm in height. I want to know what type of dinosaur this vertebra belonged to and whether it’s a caudal vertebra or not. My thoughts on this specimen at the moment, is that it’s probably a caudal (tail) vertebra from a small theropod dinosaur, something like a dromeosaur or a troodontid. I hope some dinosaur experts on this forum can give me more insight on this small vertebra.. Side view Other side Front view Bottom Top view
  5. Oxford Clay Vertebra

    Hello, I bought this vertebra today at the Oxford Fossil and Mineral Show. The seller did not know what it belonged to, only that it was found in the Oxford Clay in Orton, Peterborough. Any help on what this came from would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
  6. Cetacean vertebra Update

    I found more parts of the, believed to be, cetacean vertebra. I found two of the coastal facets (i just call them wings) in the same sight, an so far im still having trouble finding and goo reference photos of vertebrae that have this feature, any ideas? [WinZip file deleted]
  7. Big White River Vertebra - What is it?

    My stepson Josh found this today while hunting in the White River Formation (Colorado) - it's a big vertebra that was sticking out of a hillside. This formation is Eocene-Oligocene. Can anyone help ID this?
  8. Partial Sauropod neural process?

    Hi, I was wondering if the id on this piece can be confirmed. It is said to be the top end of the neural process of a Sauropod vertebra. The fossil is quite heavy and large at 24cm and it comes from the Wessex Formation in the Isle of Wight. Thanks in advance!
  9. What vertebra is this? Whale?

    Can anyone identify this vert for me? I’m guessing some type of whale, but that’s as much as I can even guess. It was found in Black Beard creek in Liberty county, Georgia
  10. Dromeosaur vertebra centrum from Alberta?

    Hi, Is this a Dromeosaur vertebra centrum?, Is there anyway to tell If it is? It’s 1.56 inches long, and is from the Drumheller valley of the Horseshoe Canyon Formation of Alberta, Canada. Thank you!!
  11. Hi, Was wondering if this is a caudal vertebra from Megalosaurus? it is from Oxfordshire, England which is consistent with where Megalosaurus remains have been found but i am not sure of what diagnostic features separate Megalosaurus fossils from other dinosaurs and if there are enough diagnostic features on the bone in question. It is 6.7cm in length (2.65 inch). Thanks.
  12. Iguanodon Vertebra?

    Along with the Daspletosaurus and Alberta fossils I have been looking at in trying to get. I’ve have also been looking at some European Dinosaur fossils to get. I have found this and am wondering if it’s a IGUANODON vertebra?, or another animal? It’s from the Isle of Wight, England. Thank you!!
  13. Spinosaurus vertebra

    Is this entirely a spinosaurus vert? I’m wondering if the top and bottom are from the same bone. From the sides I could see there being some matrix camouflaging where they’re connected, but then from the front or back view, i think it looks like it’s clearly uninterrupted, so as usual, I need help:/
  14. Kem Kem Vertebrae ID (Croc/Dino?)

    Looking for a little help identifying some small Kem Kem vertebrae. I have some ideas as to what they might be, but I'm sure I'll be corrected. Hopefully the answers will prove useful to anyone else trying to identify Kem Kem verts too! So here's what I think these are: Vert 1: Small theropod, possibly a juvenile spino? (or maybe crocodile) Vert 2: Crocodile Vert 3: Crocodile? Vert 4: Theropod dinosaur Vert 5: Theropod dinosaur (looked a little similar to an Abelisaur vertebra I've come across on the forum before)
  15. Unknown vertebra

    Found a vertebra in Calvert Cliffs, (Matoaka Beach) MD on the beach today. Approximately 3-3.5 cm in diameter and 2-2.5 cm thick. There are 6 “holes” spaced fairly evenly along the sides. Site is known for fossilized shells and shark’s teeth. Not sure if it’s shark, fish, or something else. Vertebra protrudes out maybe a half a centimeter on one side, so not perfectly round. But, could have been worn down in the bay. Not completely solid. I can hold it up to the light and see a few areas where light shines through a few pinholes. Anyone have any idea what it may have belonged to? Should I take pictures at another angle or with different lighting? Thanks!
  16. I posted a short trip report, and included this vertebra which i can't id. It is almost perfect. I put it to a flame test because I thought perhaps it was recent, but no smell whatsoever. It is about 1"wide from wing to wing, and also about the same from the bottom to the tip of the top flange. I fell in love with it as I pulled it out of the chalky white clay from the bottom of the stream where I was screening for shark's teeth. Thanks for the help.
  17. Kem Kem Vertebra: Crocodile?

    Hello all I've had this vertebra for about a year now and I always thought it was from a crocodile. What do you guys think? It's about 22 cm wide, but would be bigger if the left was complete. It's from the Kem Kem beds, Morocco. Early late Cretaceous. Kind regards
  18. Theropod (?) vertebra

    Just bought this vertebra. Small thing, just about 4,5 cm in length. Added a 1 euro coin for size reference. Obviously the spine on top and sides are gone. It was sold as a 'unidentified' theropod (caudal) from Ifezouane Formation, Kem Kem. I was wondering if people here could come to a better ID. I suspect it might just as well be crocodilian but to be honest: I'm fine with whatever it turns out to be. Didn't pay much for it anyway. So, is this: - a dinosaur or croc? - theropod - species (?) Would love to hear your opinions!
  19. Globular tooth from Ukraine

    Hi there I found this globular tooth on the bank of the Dnipro River, Kherson region, Ukraine. Dimensions: 31 mm high, 26-27 mm wide. In profile, the shape is a little close to triangular with rounded corners. I suspect it may be a tooth of ichthyosaur(Tholodus schmidi), Some megalodon or crocodile. The rock material is unknown, but appears to contain a significant silicon content. Hardness greater than 6 (does not scratch with a good knife). An ichthyosaurus vertebra (possibly) was found nearby. The material of the "vertebra" is more fragile than the tooth. The outer layer consists of small particles similar in size to the sand.
  20. Florida Pleistocene Giant Ground Sloth Vertebra?

    I found this vertebra in Bartow county Florida along with some other mammal Pleistocene fossils. It was found in close proximity to some deer antler pieces and Mastodon incisor pieces. I found an almost identical vertebra online that said that it was a giant ground sloth vertebrae. The piece is heavily mineralized. Any opinions on this vertebra would be greatly appreciated. It has a diameter of 2 1/2 inches and a width of 1 1/2 inches.
  21. I love a good vertebra. I have a hard time ID'ing some of the ones I find, but I love them nonetheless. It occurred to me that I have a lot of vertebrae laying around. From tiny critters like baby turtles and snakes, to big critters like whales. I was going through my boxes today, looking for something unrelated, and I kept running across vertebrae. So, tomorrow when the lighting is better (it's dark here now and I'm tired), I am going to lay out all of the vertebrae I have found over the years and take a group photo. Before I share my verts, let's see what you have! Show us your favorite verts! I'll post mine tomorrow.
  22. Need ID on vertebra

    Cretaceous, Eutaw Formation, Alabama.
  23. England Vert ID’s

    Listed as stegosaur From Weymouth, England and would like to know if ID is correct. These are the only pictures provided.
  24. Found on Myrtle Beach, Jan 3, 2020. This tiny round fossil is smooth on the top, perhaps a quarter inch thick, and has an unusual indentation on the bottom. I immediately thought some kind of fish vertebra, but that smoothness at the top stops me. Not sure why a vertebra would have such a smooth side. Thank you! Paula
  25. Hello everyone! I just received a dinosaur vertebra from the Upper Jurassic of Cambelas, Torres Vedras in Portugal, and I was wondering if it would be possible to identify it any further than "dinosaur". Perhaps @Troodon and @LordTrilobite could give their opinions? Here are some photos: Side photos: Top/bottom photos: Thanks so much for your help! (And thanks to @Vieira for the fossil!) Monica
