    Serpulid or Vermetidae?

    I already had 2 little piles of worm tubes then I found this larger single one today and appears the tube broke and exposed the worm. Examined the smaller ones more closely and noticed they have pyritized insides and cracks like on shell, started to wonder if they were gastropods, I see shiny spots and know the worm isn't preserved and tubes aren't shiny so doubting if they are Serpulid tubes. Also see what appears to be apeture on larger worm, so what are they? Last picture is backside of large one.

    Hell Creek Small Theropod Claw

    Hi everyone! I wanted to post one of my new favorite finds from this past week of collecting in the Hell Creek formation of Montana. I found this little partial claw at a microsite which proved to be quite productive, making for a great day. While the articulating surface is missing, I still feel that it could be identifiable and my first guess is bird. Avisaurus in particular as I remember seeing similar claws being labeled as such on other platforms. It’s about two centimeters long and the bottom is flat, giving it a somewhat triangular cross section. photos from the field.

    Interesting Hell Creek Vertebra

    Hi everyone, I found this little, mostly complete vertebra in the Hell Creek formation of South Dakota in 2019. I don't really know what to make of it as it's very porous, and amphiplatyan (flat on both sides), although I'm not sure how much of that could be attributable to wear. I believe it's safe to cross of squamate (due to lack of concavity) and champsosaur (overall shape) off the list. While most of the crocodilian verebrae I have found in the hell creek have have a convex and concave end, I am aware that some can be found that are flat sided. The porosity of the bone makes me hopeful th

    ID needed - Cretaceous Vertebra?

    I found this rock in a creek near me that I'm hoping is a vertebra fossil. It was found in the Woodbine of the Cretaceous of Texas. It was standing out from all the other rocks (most of the other rocks were red and we're not smooth). This possible fossil also has a smooth and circular shape to it, but also has slight angles it seems (if you could even call them angles). There's also a lot of small cracks in the center of the rock/fossil. Can anyone identify the species or family of animal this vertebra belonged to? Or is it just concretion or a rock? Any help is appreciated
  5. Found this bone chunk this weekend on a creek hunt in Monmouth County NJ, looks to be a piece if jaw with some partial teeth! I know bone can be very hard to ID but hoping some distinguishing marks and parts might help on this on. Hole on one end and 3 partial teeth, with one half full root exposed. Let me know what you think! I can take additional pics if needed. Happy Hunting!
  6. Although the Cretaceous period lasted from 145 to 66 million years ago, geologic units from the Berriasian to Albian stages and several terrestrial units of Albian to Maastricthian age are not chalky in terms of geologic composition. I remember that the Cretaceous at one time was divided into the Neocomian, Gallic, and Senonian epochs, so one day International Commission on Stratigraphy should divide the Cretaceous into the Neocomian, Gallic, and Senonian periods, since the Cretaceous lasted longer than either the Triassic or Jurassic. This is similar to the fact that American geologists divid

    Giant Ammonite - Austin, Texas

    Hey y'all Exciting find for me today. Decided It was about time to investigate the Eagle Ford formation for once, and it certainly paid off! This was not my target, but a thrill nonetheless. Is anyone able to lend an ID? It's quite weather worn, and I don't have exact measurements yet, but the pictures might have enough context
  8. It was hard to believe that six years had passed since I last visited the badlands of the San Juan Basin...if you are interested, I posted a few of those previous trips here and here. With a new field season upon us, @NMFOSSILS99 and I made our first (of hopefully many) exploratory mission to the Upper Cretaceous Kirtland/Fruitland badlands of the SJB...
  9. In the last couple of months my son and I have purchased some unprepped Lebanese fossil fishy's. There are four known species of guitarfish from the Lebanese provinces of Hakel and Hajula. Rhinobatos maronita is one of these; this species was fist described in 1866 by Pictet and Humbert. Some purty dang cool stuff but the guy we are buying from does not know how to wrap and send fossils over seas! Our last shipment came in many pieces! Not good. My son is working on him to make it right? Aside from that Im going to do what I can to fix things. First up is one side of what I think is

    Fish Tooth found in Lake?

    Hello, I found this tooth or rock in the bank of a lake where I was collecting and sifting in a concentrated gravel spot. 1 oyster, 1 coral piece, and 2 snails are the only fossils I found. After searching a little more, I found this rock which I'm assuming is a tooth. The gravel where I found this possible tooth is also in the Eagle Ford of the Cretaceous of Texas. I'm thinking either shark or fish tooth. It's slightly curved and there isn't any enamel or serrations (that I can see), so I might be wrong. Can anyone identify the species of animal the tooth may have belonged to? Or if
  17. Hello all! I recently rearranged my collection so I figured this would be a good time to show some fossils! I usually hang-out in the New Jersey Cretaceous but I have been collecting fossils for over 25 years and have found some pretty cool specimens of creatures from many different eras, That said, my collection is mainly focused on the New Jersey Cretaceous, so let's start there. These are my displays for New Jersey Cretaceous non-reptile fossils. My favorites aren't actually fossils at all but rather casts of some of my favorite finds. The crab, Costadrom
  18. I’ve made several trips to Greens Mill Run recently, lots of shark teeth and belemnites, large intact scallops and clams, large whale ribs and jaw bones and ear bones. However I have 3 fossils I cannot identify. Some pics are below: The top tooth is either mosasaur or crocodile, not sure which. The other two, I’m clueless. Any help would be appreciated!

    Unknown Theropod Toe Bones

    Hello, I surface collected these two associated and sequential toe bones from the Horseshoe Canyon formation, but can't quite get a definitive ID on them. After a bit of research they appear to correspond most closely with Albertosaurus, but I hope to get a second or third opinion before I label them. I know that theropod toe bones can be tricky, but I'm hoping that the claw has some diagnostic features. Thanks! Bone 1: Bone 2:

    Big Brook Whatsits!

    Hello all! After a long time away, I managed to get myself down to New Jersey to fossil hunt! Sadly, it was this last Friday, and over 95 degrees, so I was not as productive as I had hoped, and spent a lot of time sitting on my butt, boots in the water, just kind of vaguely looking around. (If anyone was suffering there with me friday, i was wearing a barfing t-rex shirt and was probably alarmingly pink in the face). However, I got a passable haul of shark teeth, belemnites, and quite a few dunnos! The larger one in matrix i suspect is a crustacean claw, the weird conical one maybe a weat

    Belonostomus sp.

    Quote from Ebert 2014, p. 16-17: “The genus Belonostomus Agassiz, 1834b is one of four genera of the extinct family Aspidorhynchidae Nicholson & Lydekker 1889. The other three are the type genus Aspidorhynchus Agassiz, 1833 from mid to late Jurassic marine deposits of the Tethys (Cuba, France, Germany, Great Britain), Vinctifer Jordan, 1919 from Cretaceous marine deposits of the Gondwana coasts (Antarctica, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Columbia, Equatorial Guinea, Mexico and Venezuela) and Richmondichthys Bartholomai, 2004 from marine deposits of the Cretaceous (Albian) of Queensland (Aus

    Vertebrae clarification

    Hello, below are photos of some verts I found at Big Brook Park in Marlboro NJ. (Late cretaceous, Mount Laurel formation). I thought they were both ray verts, upon taking another look however I noticed there are some slight differences in their build. I wanted to see if anyone had any clarification for me. I've checked the usual sites, njfossils.net and njfossils.com, but I think I don't know how to interpret different features. I took photos of each face (anterior, posterior),and tops and bottoms (dorsal/ventral sides). Both were found, to my knowledge, in the Mount Laurel format
