  1. NSR Jackpot(ish)

    I finally convinced myself to head out to the North Sulphur River again. After 2 attempts of coming up empty handed I was having trouble convincing myself that it was worth the 4 hour round trip excursion. Knowing the date for damming up the river looms nearer and nearer I decided to brave the cold water. I'm glad I did. This time with some help and guidance from a friend my trip was much more eventful. Having NEVER found a Mosasaur vertebrae my trip was made just 10 minutes in when a beautiful Mosasaur vertebrae was just sitting right there on the surface. Already a massive success in my book. A little ways down the creek my friend begins to tell me how he has found 2 Mosasaur premaxes in this spot throughout the year. I replied, "Dude, I would lose my mind if I found a piece of Mosasaur jaw!" No joke, less than 1 minute later we turn a corner and I notice something barely sticking out of the shale and mud at the bottom of the creek. I pick it up, turn it over and staring back at me is a tooth socket! Needless to say, true to my word, I did indeed lose my mind! Apparently my excitement and loud noises I made scared off all the other fossils as I didn't find much else for the next several hours. Still this was by far my best and most exciting fossil hunt. Totally worth getting stuck and sucked up into knee deep mud for.
  2. Mystery find

    Hello everyone. Please help me identify this beautiful piece of history before my dog gets hold of it and buries it in my back yard.....100,000 years from now some future archaeologist will be like “ very interesting - quite obviously a dinosaur fossil but very strange how it lies next to a chicken bone a tennis ball and a plastic object with the word Chukkit stamped on it....must have been some sort of early human ritual.” This fossil measures 6 X 6 inches wide by 4 inches deep. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated - I’m a newbie here. When I purchased this it did not come with any label or info on its origin so unfortunately no context. Thank you very much - Stu

  4. Hello everybody I got this a few weeks ago, but didn't had time to post it. It's from the Munich Fossil Show from an Moroccan dealer. This one was sold as associated Mosasaur Verts from Morocco. No more info on location. But the dealer was Moroccan and had lots of other stuff from Morocco. Since it was on a fossilshow I didn't had time to post pictures here, but for me this looked good enough to get it. What are your thoughts on this one? I still couldn't finde any obvious fabrications. It looks good for me. More pictures can be provided if needed. And I got tow more questions: Is there any better ID possible than just Mosasaur Verts? Should I prep it some more? Removing more Matrix, or the plaster from the back? I would just leave it as it is as I'm not sure if it falls apart if I remove the plaster. Length is about 45 cm (17.7 inches) Thank you for any help!
  5. Champosaur or dinosaur tail?

    Hi. I'm new here. This is being given to me. I haven't seen it, myself, yet, but the person sent me this photo. She said her dad got it from a collector almost 50 years ago in Texas, who said he got it from a local farmer. They called it a dinosaur tail. My very short internet research found possibly Champosaur? Hadrosaur seems less likely. When I get it, I can take more detailed photos to post. Opinions?

    A few hours relaxing and finding teeth.
  7. Random beach fossil

    I found this "fossil" on the beach when I was a kid. Any idea what this is?
  8. Hello! This one looks suspect to me. The smoothness of the bones and the lack of closeup photos to see any air bubbles/casting artifacts makes it hard to discern here. I'm also going to call out the little crevice surrounding the fossil that separates it from the matrix, which to me suggests it was planted into the surrounding rock. Info: Ichthyosaur communis Llavernock beach, South Whales, UK
  9. Iguanodon Cervical Vertebrae

    Here’s a nice iguanodon cervical vertebrae. It’s from the Isle of Wight and is about 4.5 inches long.
  10. Dinosaur Vertebrae

    Hi im in the middle of prepping this dinosaur vertebrae and I’d appreciate help with ID. Its from the early Cretaceous of the Isle of Wight. The neural spine is with the vertebrae but has become broken and lies underneath the vertebrae as well Thanks Nick
  11. I was kayaking and fossiling this weekend with my sister and her husband in the Peace River in Gardner, Fl. and she found a vert and I am having a hard time trying to figure out what it belongs too. At first I thought it was whale but it's too small and as for a gator the shape looks different so any help would be appreciated :-)
  12. Vertebrae ID please

    Could you tell me what this vertebrae belonged to? It will not let me upload more photos. Thank you
  13. Florida Heart Shaped Fossil and other fossils

    I got a few fossils that I needed help identifying. One is a strange heart shape and appears to be bone. There's also a vertebrae and didn't know if it was a fish or shark vertebrae. I'm assuming shark due to its size. Finally, there is a bone that looks like a spur or piece of armor plating that I was trying to ID. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Fish scale, vertebrae, squilla scale, some kind of plants Location: Pohang, south Korea Formation: Duho formation Age: middle miocene
  15. 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?
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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?
  20. 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
  21. 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!
  22. 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!
  23. 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
