  2. Has anyone tried Shell Creek?

    I could never resist pausing along the way to pick up the seashells... Sometimes when looking for seashells, other things just show up....
  3. Help please possible bone?

    Hi guys, I’ve just found this from the Lourinhã formation in Portugal, I was exploring one of the beaches and found this in the mud/siltstone bed. Sorry im in my camper so didn’t have a measure with me. But the ear bud I used to clean it is 7cm long. The fossil (?) is roughly 4cm long and 1.5cm width and roughly 1.5cm deep. I know there’s been dinosaur fossils and eggs found in the same bed and this looks very much like bone to me? Thanks for any help guys
  4. Crocodile Scute

    Very nice, congrats!
  5. Something to consider - the one advertised looks a bit rough, as well, and is probably covered with the same "shoe polish".
  6. could this be a bone?

    sorry for the poor quality of the pictures - had to use my phone!
  7. could this be a bone?

    Hi, All. I came across this yesterday, but couldn't make heads nor tails of it.... I want to think it's not a bone - one side is very smooth, while the other has a tone of small stones attached to it - but the view of the inside has me wondering.... Thanks for looking at it, and telling me what I'm looking at. I seem to have a really long learning curve! Rob @LordTrilobite @Bone guy @Haravex @Troodon
  8. Exciting Phalanx

    Email sent... I agree that my fossil is "less robust" than Harry's photos.... so our speculations make sense. We''ll see what Richard responds..
  9. Bivalve from Big Brook

    Is this the bivalve that’s very similar to Inoceramus, but has a hinge that is sort of shifted over?
  10. Cave Lion in progress - Two different Lions

    Nice work! I like how you showed your progress in your drawing with the pics.
  11. Sawfish Rostral Spine from Ramanessin Brook

    That actually could be Ischyrhiza avonicola. Nice find. Were you using a window screen?
  12. Chunky Kem Kem Theropod Tooth

    Very nice tooth some of the best serrations I've seen on teeth from this location and from a collection on the forum.
  13. Mystery Shark Tooth

    YES! That is exactly what it is! Thank you both!
  14. Today
  15. Chunky Kem Kem Theropod Tooth

    Cheers, Troodon! I've got it labelled as Carcharodontosaurid indet, so that's good to know. Hopefully the photos can be a good comparison for anyone with similar Carch teeth in future, since I haven't seen many like this one around.
  16. Centipede Type Fossil?

    Yes it does fizz in acid
  17. Clearly not the trilobite you bought...I’d be very disappointed.
  18. I will be glad in seeing your new marine Miocene discoveries . Our rare marine Pliocene deposits, in Mondego basin, are in lower parts of some creeks with a lot of vegetation over... just like your pics.
  19. Chunky Kem Kem Theropod Tooth

    Those closeup of the serrations look identical to other Carcharodontosaurids teeth I have. So Im leaning that way and still an anterior dentary tooth.
  20. Coprolite Questions

    Not really sure on this, but I think the shape is determined by the molecular structures and growth patterns of the minerals involved. Underground but saturated with water.
  21. Has anyone tried Shell Creek?

    I passed on a lot of shells and now that the only place I fossil hunt is here on the forum I wish I had kept more.

    Hi I hope to see a lot of you all at the 26th annual Aurora Fossil Festival in Aurora, North Carolina next weekend on May 25th. George

  23. I'd go for a refund, however you paid. If someone is likely to sell you a fossil and send you one that isn't even the same as the picture posted for purchase, you probably don't want to deal with whomever it be. If it was off the internet's favorite auction site, don't bother with messaging the seller and use the money back guarantee. I personally see that as fraud, unlikely it was just a mix up.
  24. Peace River Fossil with pattern?

    Bio-eroded dugong bone?
  25. Mystery Shark Tooth

    Sorry NOT an Otodus wrong age and I also think it is a lower Mako tooth but can you give us a close up of the tooth that will help a lot. George
  26. Mystery Shark Tooth

    I agree with Al Dente, looks like a postiteor C.hastalis. Take a look at this thread.
