  1. Hello! Need help. This unusual vertebra was found on the Oka River in the Moscow region. Related findings - mammoth fauna and other animals; up to 12 ... 15 million years. Fossilization is uneven. In my opinion, the age of the animal is from 30 to 150 thousand years. The vertebra is like a horse; smaller, but the canal of the spinal cord and the lateral canals of the same size are large. Cranial bulge (bump-hinge) - triple; the two protrusions may have been functional. There is a hole - shown by red arrows. Part of the vertebra is destroyed due to the hit, in my opinion, of the spear of an ancient hunter - the “stone tip” stuck in the bones and partially in one of the small lateral canals. I still have poor understanding of the vertebrae. My interests are the Stone Age, human activities. I suppose it's a cervical vertebra; relatively long. Perhaps these are ancient horses or giraffes. The functionality of these two protrusions is incomprehensible; what are they for?
  2. Bones Found in Ocean Cave

    Hey guys, I've found some bones and want to see if anyone is able to identify them for me. So while snorkeling off the coast of Rarotonga in the Cook Islands I found a spine of some sort. It was resting inside the opening of a cave. The length of spine that was visible to me was about half a metre maybe just over half a metre long. Each single vertebrae was about 20cm wide. Please view the photo provided. (Sorry I'm having trouble uploading the photo, I'm gonna try again in the morning..) Any help or input is greatly appreciated thank you
  3. Sloth Caudal Vertebrae??

    Hello! I have recently returned from a trip to Venice, FL, and I need some help identifying a few of my finds. To start, I THINK this is a sloth caudal vertebrae, but I would like to hear everyone's thoughts. It was found at an inland dredge site in the Venice area that we had permission to hunt on. The measurements are approximately 80mm × 80mm × 60mm, and it is quite dense. The material was vast and varied, so I am unable to pinpoint the era the material was from. Any and all help is greatly appreciated! Thanks, Stefanie
  4. Hell Creek Dino Vertebrae

    Looking for a little help identifying some Hell Creek dinosaur vertebrae. When I purchased these they were described as Struthiomimus and Dromaeosaur, but I don't think those ID's are correct. I think I know what most of them are (the dinosaur anatomy 101 post by @troodon was very helpful), but I'm still unsure on a few. I also thought posting this might help others when it comes to identifying hell creek verts. So I think these 8 are Thescelosaurus caudal verts. They're all fairly chunky and most have a well defined ridge in the middle of the centrum.
  5. Vertebrae ID please

    Hi, This is my first reptile skeletal find, and I'm absolutely thrilled, especially since I didn't expect to find much at the end of the summer. It's from between staithes and mulgrave. I know they're vertebrae X2, however I'm not sure what exactly. They're also in amongst what could be other bits of bone, the top bit looks like some hard outer exoskeleton (scales/shell?) Although it could equally just be the mudstone concretion. Any ideas?
  6. 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
  7. Cretaceous vertebra from Morocco

    I bought this at a show from a dealer. Curious as to if we could pin down what kind of dino this might have belonged to? Thanks!
  8. Vertebrae?

    Hi, this fossil i believe was found on Mt. Snowden in Wales, it may be a long shot to identify since its not very unique looking, but worth a shot Definitely some kind of vertebrae, there is another on the other side of the stone that I will attach in the replies, however that one seems to be a deep indent rather than sticking out like the big one, so if anyone could shed some light on that i would be grateful. Thanks!
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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! :-)
  12. Fossil ID?

    Hi I found this thing that looks like a vertebrae. Was found on the beach. Is quite heavy.
  13. Is this a vertebra and if so from what?

    Do you know what this is? I think it’s a vertebra. it’s 2.6 cm is from the early Cretaceous of California the francican melange.
  14. Hi, Can anyone please help with the latest and safest info for beach access directions at Port Mulgrave, and Runswick Bay. I’ve never been to either and all info I find on line seems a bit outdated, confusing and causes concerns. My wife is coming with just to show slight interest and keep company. We are both mid 60’s and mobile amateurs. I’m concerned about ladder and rope access references and any related safety / risk aspects of getting onto the beach in the right place at the right time. Are there options for access to either location. Any directions or pointers would be warmly welcomed. This is something of a bucket list trip to quell a schoolboy interest, so I’d like to survive to remember it. Perfection would be to find a vertebrae, but very happy with a reasonable Ammonite. I’ve checked tide times, we are going early October with a high tide @ 09:00. Accommodation already booked nearby to allow 2 mornings on a beach. I’m assuming one location each day. All advise, comments and options would be warmly received. Regards, Bob
  15. The seller claims is a plesiosaurus vertebrae 20cm that has no extra pieces on or glues , i was wondering if somebody can say the opposite. thanks in advance
  16. Savannah River

    My son and I had a wonderful July4th weekend on Tybee Island (near Savannah). We went in a boat with Sundial Charters to look for fossils along the Savannah River. The Captain and mate were the nicest people, so much history and interesting ecology and nature (we saw dolphins and white pelicans) - I had gone with the same company 10 years ago :). I’m curious if I’ve labeled the teeth correctly and if anyone knows the type of vertebrae or what that piece is in the lower right, please chime in! Thanks
  17. I have to say that today was a fun day, I took @Darktooth and his family out for some fossil hunting along the Miocene areas of the Potomac. We had a beautiful day for it, just wish that the clouds that had been forecasted would have showed because it became extremely hot out there! Nevertheless, we persisted and spent about 5 hours looking for fossils and we were all wiped out by the time we got back. I know that Darktooth will be posting his own report, the following is just what my daughter and I found. I had a great time with you Darktooth, I hope you and your family enjoy the rest of your vacation! Total haul of our "small stuff" Nice "doorstop" whale vert A nice hastalis, really the only tooth I found Crab, I just started to look for these. Never really had the eye for them before. My daughter found this piece of fish jaw with a tooth in it. She really didn't know what she had but thought it looked neat and put it in her bag. I found this fish vert in a chunk of matrix A couple of small shark verts A little ecphora Now for the really cool find, definitely a trip maker and my best find this year...three attached verts that have been tentatively identified as marlin. Dr. Weems will get a look at them on Monday so I may get an updated ID then.
  18. Milk River Ridge Reservoir

    Hello all, Early part of June this year I was able to get, for the first time, to a place I hadn't picked before. Nicknamed "Dino Beach" at the south end of Milk River Ridge Reservoir (MMR) a little south and east of the community of Raymond, Alberta. I was told the fossil bones would be black compared to those found at Dinosaur Provincial Park (DPP) and they weren't wrong. The water washes bones from the base of the wall and all we had to do was walk along and fine what was available. We made it there late afternoon so only had a few hours to pick around but it was fun and rewarding. A couple verts, a piece of rib and a larger piece of undetermined bone. We spent the next day picking pieces of dino bone fragments from a dry gully south of DPP and you can see the difference in color and preservation.
  19. Partial spinal column ID

    Hello everyone, I found this small column of 5 vertebrae in the gravel bars of the North Sulphur River in Texas. To me it seems obvious that it has spent some time in the river since some sediment has been removed but they are all five still attached to each other. Other than the obvious, I have no other identification but would love to learn more about what this is or what they once belonged to. I could only attach one picture to the post for some reason. I will post more images in response. The ruler is decimal inches. Thanks! Andy
  20. Magalosaurus vertebrae

    This is being sold as a megalosaurus vertebrae from France. How does it look and I’m pretty sure megalosaurus isn’t from France so is there a chance that this is poekilopleuron? It is Jurassic late tithonian and is from Re, Charente - Maritime, Dept 17, France.
  21. What animal is this vertebra from?

    Not a fossil, but wondering if anyone has any ideas about what animal it's from... It's big and old. Found in pinestraw purchased in northeast Georgia.
  22. Prepping a Dinosaur Vertebrae

    Hi I’ve recently acquired this dinosaur vert. I’ve started prepping it but it’s a right pain. The bone is a similar colour to the matrix, the matrix smears and the bone is soft. I’ve been using s combination of pens and dolomite but it’s really tough to work out where the matrix ends and the bone begins. Any help is welcome. I think it’s an iguanodon dorsal but may be from an ankylosaur. Time will tell.
