  2. Bone fossil?

    Lol. I should have had a dog to dig up the flowerbed; maybe it wouldn't have cut the phone wire like I did. So I found fossil but now need to get the wire replaced. Oh well, maybe next time I'll dig up a meteorite!
  3. How could you, there's not a bit of purple in that arrangement!
  4. Florida Miocene Inverts

    The first photo is an internal cast of a scallop probably the same species as your second photo which is Carolinapecten eboreus. The last pic is the barnacle Chesaconcavus tamiamiensis.

  7. researching obscure dinosaurs

    Replica +20" claws are sold everywhere at a very reasonable price. A definite attention getter.

    Can you add measurements please (in centimeters) and welcome to the forum

  11. Ray teeth?

    I need help identifying this piece of dental plaque from a ray. Any ideas?
  12. Giant Tortois Osteoderm?

    @Harry PristisWish I had found a few during my trips to Florida. Maybe I did and just called it a chunkasaurus! Beautiful Navicular Bone (sesamoid) example pictured above. I have a funny story from 20 years ago. I injured my knee. Had x-rays taken at Mayo Clinic. The physician asked if the interns could be in the room. No problem with me. So the doctor was discussing my knee and presenting questions to the interns. He pointed to two little bones on the back of my knee and asked "what are these bones?" Everyone sat in silence and I couldn't help myself. I "screamed out" sesamoid bones, thinking how dumb can these doctors be. I was right on the diagnosis but the physician explained to me that it was very uncommon to find sesamoids in the knee of a human! Less than 1 in 500. Maybe I have some equine blood in me from way back when. Maybe I am part centaur! Anyways, we all had a good laugh when I explained how I had knowledge of sesamoids, a serious issue in equine medicine. Mike
  13. Tiny theropod tooth ID

    Thank you. I see that the serrations are visible on the mesial edge, did not believe they were based on your initial comments. Last question can you then provide me a serration count midline for 1 mm. Want to see if they are the same or different than distal.
  14. Unidentified crocodile bones from Holzmaden

    In General that might be right but in Holzmaden Plesiosaur are much rarer than crocodiles. Maybe this was caused by the fact that Holzmadem wasn't far away from the coast. For example I found at my last visit about 5 crocodile teeth there and no Plesiosaur teeth (I never found a Plesiosaur tooth there until now).
  15. Unidentified crocodile bones from Holzmaden

    In toarcian level, crocs are rarer than plesiosaurs
  16. Looking for a gw shark tooth

    @hemipristis these are great! Thanks! I especially like the one on the left (with the most complete root). Exactly the type of tooth I'm looking for. I'm sending you a PM as we speak
  17. Trilobite Hunt in NSW

    @Max-fossils @piranha @Scylla @Al Tahan @Bronzviking @PaulK Thanks everyone!
  18. Quick walk down the beach in Wilmington

    Agreed, or maybe even Otodus auriculatus (an earlier ancestor). Depends on the age of the tooth. @SerratedTeeth do you know how old your fossils are?
  19. Trilobite Hunt in NSW

    Awesome finds Daniel! Wow!

    Very nice trilo's @DanKurek!
  21. Let's see your latest mailbox score!

    And still I have no amber insects in my collection... Nice multi-bug piece! Here is my latest acquisition... a soft-bodied thing from Bear Gulch Montana. I'd like to know what it is. The closest thing I can think of is a sea anemone. I would need to see some papers on the Bear Gulch fauna (Heath Fm, Bear Gulch Limestone). I'd also like to know whether Bear Gulch is latest Mississippian or earliest Pennsylvanian. I have seen both stated in various pages in a Google search. I wonder if I should post this in the ID section instead...
  22. I love that Annularia bouquet - it's exquisite!
  23. Agreed. The chop marks have an angular pattern of fracture which indicates that they were not made when the bone was fresh.

  25. ID help

    I don’t think she’s the late Becky Hyne.
  26. Real or Fake?

    @Saturated-Sam you did the best thing posting here first. I agree with the others and I think the market and the fossil shows are full of fabricated stone crocodiles skulls with real mosasaur teeth. My advice is keep looking and post here. If you look at some museum examples in detail online, you will start to see bone structure and textures where tendons have been attached and so on . All theses features are not present as this sand stone carved skull. Good luck at the show . Bobby
  27. Real or Fake?

    Real teeth glued to a carved bone or rock. What is this even supposed to be? A Mosasaur? A croc? Well, I had to make this meme
