Those unknown teeth are mosasaurs either of different species or different parts of the mouth. There are a few on the forum that can help you determine the genus and position of the teeth. Nice collection btw!

I'm sorry, I don't mean to be rude, but what do you mean by "A few labels are incorrect"?

Its fine. The "unknown teeth" look more like teeth from Morocco, to me.

But I meant the ones in your previous part 1 collection, but it looks like people have already pointed them out :)

Im not so sure about that...

kentucky is not known for its lagerstätte fish fossils, and the few they have do not look like this, these look to be from the green river formation of Wyoming as well;)

still nice though!

Nice collection you got there, but like last time, I'll point out some mislabels.

-The unknown teeth are mosasaur teeth (Prognathodon and Liodon to be exact), and they do not look like they are from Wyoming, more like Morocco where mosasaur teeth are littered in the thousands.

-I think the ammonite has a possibility of being a goniatite, but I guess people can't really tell the difference, nor care about it.

-None of your fish are from Kentucky (maybe you just bought it from there :P), they are clearly from the Green River Formation which is in mostly Wyoming but also parts of Utah and Colorado. The species of fish look like Knightia.

 

If you don't know the id of a fossil, feel free to simply ask in the fossil id section, and us with a few experts out there will do our best to accurately identify it.

I care about it enough to be aware of the term "gonatite";)
