  1. splatchamp

    Species of this fish?

    Just over 2 feet long, only between 10 and 15 sharp teeth. Any help is appreciated!
  2. splatchamp

    Species of this bird?

    Skull length around 10 inches, skull width around 4-5 inches, with a beak that seems to indicate that it's a fish-eating bird. Any help would be much appreciated!

  4. Kolya

    What is it?

    Hello! Help with identification please. Radius - 0,7 mm. Age: Middle Miocene. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  5. Found in the scollard formation. I thought it appears to be skull material, but would obviously only be a small portion if so. @Troodon

    Cretaceous Jaw Fragment? Please Help ID

    Found this fossil while surface collecting in the Alberta Badlands (Canada) North Of Drumheller in the Red Deer river valley. Looking for some help to ID this unusual looking fossil. If I had to guess I'd say it looks like a possible jaw fragment? Any help to ID would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Mammal teeth ID

    Hi, I found these teeth washed up on the beach and i'm curious to know more about them. They are covered in what looks like tar. Hopefully someone can identify the kind of animal they belong to, but any kind of information would be great. :-) As far as i can tell, they're some mammal teeth... right?

    Unknown Fossil Found in Bottle Dump

    Hello, I'm very new to this, so I hope I get things right here. Can anyone help me identify this? I found it in an old bottle-dump near Selkirk in the Scottish Borders that dates back to the 1960s. It's on the broken edge of a stone slab but from what I can see it measures about 5.7 cm across. Is it some kind of shell? If anyone needs more info I'd be happy to give it. Thanks in advance!

    Old collection fossil id

    I am unable to identify these pieces from my grandad's collection. He is now unable to clearly see and so sadly couldn't identify it. It must be something, he was a zoologist and the shale meant enough to have a crack repaired. Parts look like bones to me. I'd love to get these identified so I can prep them, making them clearer so he can see them clearer again.
  11. PetrosTrilobite

    Fish ID

    I have this fish several years and it is one of my first fossils. But I don't know any about fish. Maybe look like knigthia but the tail do not look like this genus. Note that I don't know if this is a green river fish because I bought the fossil from a small Greek shop with not information. Also you can see any restoration (paint)?

    Id Please?

    Hi, what is this? Thanks
  13. I found this encased in limestone at a dig site in Wisconsin, USA. Its composition seems unusual for anything else at that dig site. It was deep inside limestone and most of the limestone easily pulled off with little effort. Is this an egg? It measures approximately 6.35cm x 4.5cm
  14. I'm assuming this is a fish or ray tooth, what type is it? Found at Big Brook (little bigger than a finger nail) Found this tooth at Big Brook and was wondering what type of tooth this is?
  15. Every now and then something weird shows up in my sifter. Look at this cute little guy. Hexagonal shape with a faint raised area in the middle. Texture, shape, thickness all seem right for a giant armadillo, but the size is tiny. I've never seen one this small. Can someone confirm or deny this? Could this be from a baby/juvenile? Could it be a baby glyptodont. I'm stumped.
  16. I'm stumped on this oddball. It looks damaged and is suffering from some delamination of the outer shell, but the core is intact and it looks like the entire top chewing surface is visible. What is it? A very worn cetacean tooth? A suggestive broken portion of mammoth tooth? Some other vertebrate critter? Found in the middle Peace River, Bone Valley formation, Hawthorn group - Desoto County Florida. Thanks!
  17. This is another one that has me stumped. At first glance, it was chunkosaurus. On closer examination, it has some curvature and features that might help identification. Does anyone know what this is? The last time I found something roughly similar to this, it turned out to be part of a horse knee or something like that. Found in the Peace River, Bone Valley, DeSoto County, FL. Thanks!

    Coronocephalus ID

    Hi, new here I recently acquired this trilobite fossil, which I can identify as Coronocephalus, but I'm not sure about the species. It's not immediately apparent from the first picture, but this is only the negative. The trilobite itself is around 4 centimetres long. I suspect it is a molt. A friend got it for me as a souvenir on his trip to Yunnan, China. I'd be tempted to say C. gaoluoensis based on how frequently they occur, but the glabella makes me suspect C. rex. Edit: upper end of glabella tuberculate so probably not gaoluoensis pygidium does not taper therefore cann

    Weird spinosaur tooth?

    Good morning, long short story 2 weeks ago O bought some bulk spinosaur teeth. 7 of them are clearly Spinosaur, but this one looks so thin and weird and doesn't look as a spinosaur. Maybe they send to me a wrong one? What do you think guys?

    NY Lower Devonian Brachiopod Help

    About 10 days ago @Jeffrey P and I collected at an exposure near his house that is full of Lower Devonian brachiopods. I was amazed by the diversity of brachiopods at the site. But what makes this site so special also makes it tough to identify everything. I did my best to identify many of my finds, but I am a bit stumped on several others. A lot of the sketches in Linsley's plates are starting to look alike. I could really use some help, even if it is a guess on the family or genus. Please let me know what you think. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you! #1- Spirinella modes

  24. Bone Daddy

    Paddle-shaped bone, Peace River, FL

    I found this oddball in the northern Peace River. It's a paddle-shaped bone with "streaks" or "lines" running the length on one side. It also has some curvature to it. I can't decide if it's a partial bone or the entire thing. Does anyone know what this is? My gut is saying something like turtle. Any ideas? Thanks in advance! PS - sorry my photos suck. My hands have gotten shakier lately and I need to invest in a tiny tripod.
