  1. Past hour
  2. Is that what that fake crab meat is??
  3. Shark tooth display for educational program

    nice collection you'll definitely get people to go out side and look for their own after seeing that.
  4. Scalarituba

    Nice Swiss Army Toolbox..
  5. Today
  6. Hello I have a juvenile rex tooth from Lance Formation to trade looking for dinosaur fossils thats are not from morocco.
  7. Scalarituba

    Swiss Army knives and cell phones do not make good scales. Let’s talk now about the “really cool” fossil.
  8. Scalarituba

    No, I don’t agree. Not everybody has a Swiss knife or a lighter, and not all phones are the same size. Why not make the effort to give a measure or to put a rule on the picture when it is so easy to get one? In addition, there are so many new posts every day on TFF that I refuse to waste time going to another site to find out how much a piece measures, be it American or otherwise. I repeat: when you ask for an identification you can make a small effort towards those who will spend time doing a service! I’m sorry if I misunderstood what you said. Coco
  9. Proportional Geologic Time Scale

    OK, one more update with edits recommended by @DPS Ammonite plus a few other minor tweaks... What a lot of tedious work this thing has turned out to be! Of course the editing is never done and likely there are other things I should change, but hopefully not too soon. I'm going to go do something else now!
  10. Marine coprolites? Maybe?

    Welcome to the Forum Kimberly. You have pieces of oysters and or bivalves in a Cretaceous rock that is sandstone or limestone. Take a look at this geology map to see if you can find out what formation they are from. Let us know what you find out. https://txpub.usgs.gov/txgeology/ A good source of info for north Texas fossils is: http://northtexasfossils.com/ Also, consider joining the Dallas Paleontology Society: https://www.dallaspaleo.org/
  11. Hi, Could you put close-up pics with the otoliths gathered by similarities, for there I see at least three different forms. Coco
  12. Largest Carnivorous Land Mammal described

    It's not your post that bothered me. It's that in the articles that both links access they never mentioned land mammals. One would expect those who create such articles to better define the parameters.
  13. Largest Carnivorous Land Mammal described

    Thanks for pointing out the semi obvious Mark and @gigantoraptor Gigantoraptor was trying to point out the same thing when he mentioned marine mammals. I have edited my post to say largest land mammals. Thanks for the correction.
  14. Largest Carnivorous Land Mammal described

    I believe they meant land mammals, even though they never actually said so.
  15. Beware of sellers who refuse to use Paypal

    @Andy AJPlai and all other TFF members with stolen photos of their fossils should tell the dishonest seller that they own the copyright to the photos and the fossils are still owned by the members and are not for sale.
  16. large fossil in coastal wall California

    Your guess is better then mine. I was just looking to see if fossils where found in my area. If you google Avila beach sea cow the artical will come up. This is what it looked like
  17. large fossil in coastal wall California

    Or perhaps the Steller's sea cow has gone south at one point?
  18. Shark tooth display for educational program

    That is an awesome display Dino Bo. I love the monster Cretodus. It is nice to see you finally let the forum know what you are doing my friend
  19. large fossil in coastal wall California

    Nathan, our coastal shores are littered with whale remains. Bones are constantly being plowed up in the fields and vineyards around here. We also get "modern" whale bones washing up on shore after big storms. Remainents of our whaling days of yore. When you say "Sea Cow" are you referring to something like Manatees?
  20. Help me identify this ground sloth...

    Cloepus? doesn't exist. Did you mean Choloepus? Bradypus are three-toed, Choloepus are two-toed. Your question is illogical.
  21. Marine coprolites? Maybe?

    Hello, I find a lot of what I believe to be marine fossils from the Cretaceous period on my land up in Grayson County, North Texas, but I am not certain what kind of fossils they are. Here are pictures of what I think are coprolites? Thank you in advance for your help in identification.
  22. hello my name is Nathan this is my first post. I am new to this so let me know how to do better location: Pismo beach California 4' above high tide line on the beach first photo is about 8in across I believe is a vertebrae. maybe a whale? the 2nd photo is about about 6" wide and is 4' away from the vertebrae. I did some research and found out someone found a sea cow about 10 north from this find but it is not in the same kind of sediment the sea cow was found in sandstone. it seems that there is no one really interested in preserving this he explained that he watched them fall about for about 15yrs and now they are gone. Are fossils so common that people pic and choose what's worth saving? I can get more photos and bring a tape measure its only a 4 min walk from my house. It would not let me add my other photos. thanks for your help
  23. Howdy there everyone. Wanted to show off my newly crafted Cretaceous Sharks of Texas display. Like my good buddy@fossilsonwheels, I run a traveling educational program called Dino Bo. I stay in the Dallas/Fort Worth area so I really wanted to create a display to show kids what kind of awesome sharks lived here and encourage them to get outside and find their own. A very special thanks to my friend Roger Farish who donated several of these teeth to help this become a reality.
  24. Quick backyard walk

    Sciponoceras gracile occur with great frequency in the uppermost Cenomanian Sciponoceras gracile zone of the upper Britton, often in concentrations such as seen around the Allocrioceras fragment. I am not aware of any other baculitid species in the Britton. In this zone also occurs Placenticeras, Allocrioceras, Worthoceras, Scaphites, Euomphaloceras, and Metoicoceras, just to name a few out of many other genera. The shark tooth is a bit of a rarity since vertebrate material is much more common in the lower Britton than the upper, but not unheard of.
  25. Tooth or just a rock

    Hi, and welcome to the forum. It's a neat rock, but I don't believe it's a fossil. Usually to help you ID a specimen we need better photos from all 6 sides (imagine the specimen is inside a transparent cube) and a better idea of the location. I'm pretty sure there's more than one road and one post office in Wyoming. Nearest town is better, rock formation would be ideal. Keep on hunting and don't forget to smile.
  26. Carboniferous Flora Finds

    Nice finds Ric! +2. Anything more going on here outside of the frame of the photo? Regards, Chris
