    Ray and Skate Verts

    Yesterday, a hunting companion found a Vertebra like this one. The majority of his finds were Stingray (broken) mouth plates, isolated teeth and barbs. He immediately thought he had a Stingray vert, but I said no.... Sawfish. and now I am not sure. Why is it so difficult to find verts from Stingrays (Manta, Eagle, etc) identified on the Internet? What do they look like? Can I compare a Sawfish vert to a Manta Ray Vert and note differences? In searching, I found this reference and photos https://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/species-especes/skates/anatomy/internal-eng.html

    Weird vertebrae

    I found these two vertebrae together in the Dinosaur Park Formation of Alberta. I’m wondering what they might be? I’m suspecting rather Champsosaur, turtle, or juvenile theropod. Any insight into the identity of these two elements would be great, thanks! @Troodon

    Mazonia-Braidwood Vertebrae

    Pretty sure these are amphibian vertebrae. Found in Pit 11 in the Mazonia-Braidwood complex.
  4. After my last NSR trip, and finding a mosasaur vert, I felt like I was getting a better eye for NRS fossils. I have always heard the feeder creeks can be productive however I have searched in several never found anything in them. Now that I had more confidence I went to a more remote bridge and went for the first feeder creek I could find. It turned out to be decently productive with several more verts, none in particularly great condition though, and a jaw section. I think there is a coprolite in there too, pictures 14 and 15 maybe? I think my favorite find of all was the artifact though.

    North Sulphur River Vert

    I took a trip to nsr after some decent rain in the middle of January. Here in Texas the weather can be hot, cold, or anything in between and it turned out it was a nice day in the 60s. I found a decent mosasaur vert, some decent ammonites, and a few other items. Let me know what you think. Pictures 4 and 5 where of a huge ammonite. You can tell by the rock pick it was over a foot wide and the picture doesn't show but the outer shell that was deteriorating was iridescent and really pretty. I don't think I have seen an ammonite with actual shell still intact however everything else
  6. Yesterday I found this piece of vertebra near the Calvert Formation at Calvert Cliffs Maryland. It seems to be a "cookie" but is taller than online pictures show and haas a strange belly button shape with a pattern in the middle. It is roughly 3-4 inches wide and 1 inch tall. Does anyone recognize this fossil?
  7. 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
  8. A few weeks ago I decided to take the kids to my local park. They are building houses in this area and completed a new road which made getting to this park much quicker. Now instead of going way around it's only about a mile from my house and a much more direct shot. On the drive to the park I looked over to my right and saw some red/orange soil. The only formation in this area with that color is the Woodbine formation. "Odd," I thought. "The nearest Woodbine outcrop on the geological map is miles form here." I told my kids we were gonna make a quick pit stop for 10 minutes or so t

    Possible Bison Vertebrae

    I found this on a sandbar along the Missouri River, and in the State of Missouri, and was wanting to get confirmation on if it is a bison vertebrae.

    mosasaur vs croc vertebrae ?

    My local fossil site is a late marine cretaceous site with abundant fossils with poor preservation. Over time I have collected several vertebral centrum that are concave on one surface and convex on the other. Is it possible to separate croc from mosasaur on these beat up pieces. What criteria can one use.

    What vertebra is this (OBX NC)

    Can I have some help on this? I have no idea what species it’s from and it’s driving me crazy. Any tips would be appreciated. Found in Duck, North Carolina. (OBX NC = Outer Banks, North Carolina.)

    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!

    Peace River Teeth and a Few Verts

    I bought these among others a few years back. I went looking through them today and realized I wasn't sure on these pieces. Peace River Fm, Florida. 1
  16. This last weekend I hit the NSR along with the crowds and decided to start at the Ladonia Fossil park. I got there shortly after dawn and already there were several groups of people down in the river. I don't mind walking in others footsteps and in fact quite a few of my good finds have been within feet of where others have already walked so I started off and within about an hour of slipping and sliding around on the marl I found two of the ugliest associated mosasaur verts I've yet to lay eyes on. Maybe they will clean up nicer than they look now but in my experience the preservation in the h

    Unknown Vertebrae Pleistocene

    I found this partial vertebrae today that is sliced almost in half. Inland Venice, FL. It was located 100 feet from where I recovered an Early Pleistocene Equus tooth this week. This vert is 61mm high and 60mm at widest diameter. The ends are very flat and smooth. There are two circular areas where there are breaks. Assistance in ID is welcomed. I’m not sure how to proceed. Images are taken at 1x. Regards -Michael
  18. I found this fossil on on a beach in the north of france and picked it up and suddenly realised what it was. It may have been washed across the sea from the English coast. I wanted to find out if it is a dinosaur fossil and what it was if possible. Size: Length of 6cm, width of 2.5cm and height of 6cm. Thank you for any help

    Ichtyosaur species uk

    Hello! I have a Ichtyosaur vertebrae from Abingdon, Oxfordshire. It says it's Kimmeridgian. what Im wondering is if there are many types of ichtyosaurs that has been found in that region or if remains from these can be narrowed down to a specifik species?
  20. Hello, I am hoping someone can help identify this fossilized vertebrae that was found along the Missouri River near St. Louis, MO. It is 2" across.
  21. I'm a newbie who lives in the Austin area with a lot of passion for ancient life, but I'm having trouble making a decisive start with with my searches. I have a particular interest in large western interior seaway predators, most notably xiphactinus, but also the mosasaurs and sharks that lived in the area as well. Finding a vertebrae, of perhaps even teeth from these groups would be absolutely wonderful, but of the few creeks in the Austin area I've scouted, I've been able to turn up nothing besides gastropods. This is still despite heavily studying the sometimes confusing Texas geological ma

    Colorado dinosaur vertebrae???

    Hi guys, I found this dinosaur(?) vertebrae in a Phoenix, Arizona antique shop all by itself in a dusty, dark corner. I wanted to give it life back and purchased it for a bargain price. It was only labelled "Colorado dinosaur bone". To me, it looks like Morrison Formation material based on its surprising, beautiful color. Maybe sauropod or stegosaurus??? I know it's really worn, but it has a great shape in person and very heavy for its size. Talk about size, it's 7 inches long and 4.5 inches tall even worn down this much! Any help identifying it would be awesome! Thank you!
  23. Hello. I was wondering about the authenticity of this set of vertebrae. I suspect that it has had considerable repair and restoration. Particularly, the orange areas and some of the cracked sections seem off. I'm also suspicious of the fact that the vertebrae are all connected. Thanks for any help identifying the authenticity. Note: I'm aware of the laws regarding fossils from China and Mongolia. I am not looking to add this piece to my collection. I'm just curious if it is real or not.
  24. Hi, I have another query about a possible theropod bone, this time it is from the Lourinha Formation in Portugal. I think it is a caudal and the seller lists it as a Theropod indet fossil but I wanted to confirm if it is indeed from a Theropod because it does look a bit similar to some croc verts I have seen. The fossil is 5.3cm in length. Thanks.
