  1. Any help would be very appreciated on this vertebra found in the Brazos River in Texas. Many thanks for looking and replying!
  2. I found this big vertebra and several other smaller ones on the Brazos river.
  3. Dear members of the fossil forum. Some time ago I bought several vertebrae from the Turonian layers of Goulmima, Morocco. 5 marine vertebrates have been found at that site until now. These are Tethysaurus (mosasaur), Thililua (polycotylid), Manemergus (polycotylid), Libonectes (plesiosaur) and Brachauchenius (pliosaur). I want to know if I have a fossil of each of these 4 groups from Goulmima. Therefore I need to know how the vertebrae look of each group. I know the difference between mosasaur vertebrae and the other 3 groups, but which differences exist between the other three? Thanks in advance, Sander
  4. Dear members of the fossil forum, I have bought this vertebra with limited information, and I was hoping that someone here might know more about this vertebra, as in what genus and species it is, and perhaps a better defined findspot. It is said to have come from the Austin Chalk Formation, Santonian, Texas. the seller did not know more about it, nor did he know from whom he acquired it. for some reason none of the vertebrae I have seen from the austin chalk have got this colour, and also it seems that from the santonian of texas no plesiosaurs have been described yet? in older and younger layers i see Libonectes, Elasmosaurus and Styxosaurus, but they come from Turonian and Campanian layers. Perhaps someone here can help me, or knows a researcher who is specialised in plesiosaurs (elasmosaurs?)? Thanks in advance, Sander
  5. Here's a good sized chunk of a vert from the Brazos River. Just wondering if there's anything diagnostic here.
  6. Went out again this past weekend to try to find more pieces to the large fossil I found in San Pedro and found what I believe (taking the wildest of guesses) may be a piece of a Whale Vertebra? Not sure this is considered a fossil but thought I'd ask all the more educated (than me) individuals on this forum. Since y'all are the experts! Thanks again in advance for any input. (If these photos are too dark I can post better ones later.) -Amy

  9. Any help on the identity and position of this small (scale bar = 1 mm) vertebra from the Hell Creek Formation (Late Cretaceous) of S. Dakota, would be greatly appreciated. It looks like much of the neural arch and processes are gone. The centrum is a bit more dorso-ventrally flattened as compared to the turtle vertebra I posted the other day, and the ventral side (?) of the centrum has sinuses unlike the turtle vert (perhaps due to wear / breakage?).
  10. The attached photos show a vertebra, probably from a dinosaur (theropod according to a very experienced collector, but no reference given) or crocodile from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco. The bone is 9,5 cm long and 9,0 cm tall. Any help to identify it to family, genus or species will be most appreciated.
  11. Could someone help me with the identification and position of this vertebra. I was thinking it was procoelous and maybe crocodylomorph? Scale bar = 1mm.
  12. From the album Calvert Cliffs - 3/7/17

    I'm not sure what type of vertebra this is as it doesn't resemble a whale or dolphin vertebra. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that it's a bird. Maybe someone can help me identify it.
  13. From the album Calvert Cliffs - 3/7/17

    I've never seen a vertebra or bone like this. It's definitely bone because of the porosity on the sides. On the left of the picture there are two knobs poking out on the upper left and bottom left. I have no clue were these fit into and there's a depression between these knobs. I think vertebrae and bones are really neat because they all fit together like pieces in a puzzle and remind me of playing with legos when I was little. Props to anyone who can guess what this is but my bet would be some sort of whale.
  14. From the album Calvert Cliffs - 3/7/17

    Whale vertebra with the missing fans. I've found one before that was at least 4 times as large, and it's neat to find a smaller specimen.
  15. Hello! I was hoping someone could help me identify these three items. Any idea what this vertebra is from? 1) 2) I'm pretty sure this is a vertabra as well: 3) Tooth? Thank you very much!
  16. This little guy is from the Georgetown Formation or late Pleistocene formations
  17. I'm relatively new at fossil hunting in the Peace River but I found a few nuggets that I am not able to identify so asking for expert schooling here. I assume the first is a long tooth but broken at both ends. The second (3-4" marks) is much smoother and has a twist to it. The 3rd at 5" is just a conical tip of something. The two at 6 & 7 appear to be vertebra of some type but I don't know what, these were found almost a mile apart. The pieces at 8" and 9" are unknown to me, at first I thought it was a curious formation but now I've seen 4 or more of these so I started saving them. I don't know if they are fish tooth or a "claw" or just funny rocks? The final question is an oddball that seemed to "unusual" to be just a "rock" but other than describing it as "brain like" I don't know what it would be? Fish ballast? Thanks in advance!

  18. From a Miocene area. The oval portion of this vertebra is 4" across by 2 3/4" wide. Thickness is 1 1/2". Any idea what animal it would be from? Thank you.
  19. I find lots of verts. Most are horse, cow, deer. Some more mineralized than others. I don't bother posting most of them. This one seems different, but I can't describe why I think it's different. Just a gut feeling. Any thoughts? Found on the Brazos River, Texas, pleistocene.
  20. I prepped another Niobrara coprolite and found an interesting inclusion. With my limited knowledge of fish anatomy, My best guess is some kind of connecting bone where the vertebrae meet the skull? The coprolite contains both large and small fish vertebrae in addition to this bone. Thanks in advance for your help!
  21. We found this vertebra, from pleistocene period, in Hungary. Can somebody help which animal could have it?
  22. I found this yesterday on a Northeast Florida beach! Any ideas?
  23. I took the teeth and and other dinosaur material i won in Grand Christmas auction plus some teeth I already had and put together this display.
  24. Hi all, I've this nice vertebra fossil from the Hell Creek Formation in Harding County, South Dakota. I'm pretty sure it is a Crocodillian vert but not sure of the species or genus. Also, is it possible to tell which part of the body this belonged to? Any suggestions are welcome and much appreciated! Cheers, Jojo
  25. So I came across this vertebra on the internet. It's labeled as a large Spinosaurus vertebra. I don't think it's that due to it being very flat. But one thing caught my attention. One side seems to have a lot of air sacks. So my first thought was that it could possibly be a Sauropod vertebra. What do you guys think?
