    Gator/bovine bone?

    Hey guys! I'm hoping someone can help me ID this bone? I found it a little while ago in a river close to me in south Florida. I feel like it’s something obvious like a gator or a bovine but I can’t get a definite answer and it always drives me nuts when I can’t ID a bone! I’ve found one or two others similar to this in the past.

    Santa Fe River Tooth

    Hi everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster haha. I’m still kind of new to this so sorry if this is a super obvious ID, but I was wondering what kind of tooth this is exactly. I was thinking crocodile, but it seems to have a slightly different shape so I wasn’t sure. I found it at Ginnie Sprints in High Springs on the Santa Fe River in Florida. It’s about 2 1/4” long. Thank you in advance for your help!
  3. Hi everyone, I recently bought this tooth on a whim. It was described as Diplocynodon sp. from the Kimmeridge Clay and reworked into the Albian-age Faringdon Sponge Gravels at the Wicklesham Pit. However, this description is obviously wrong in either species attribution or locality, since Diplocynodon is an alligatoroid genus dating to the Paleocene to middle Miocene, and could therefore not possibly have been found in the Sponge Gravels as Wicklesham Pit. Going by the label that came with the tooth, however, the seller whom I bought the
  4. I noticed the fossils of more 'modern' reptiles are not commonly shown/displayed (partly because I think they are fairly common in the U.S. and not viewed as too spectacular), so I thought we might do so here. I'd love to see your croc/alligator and turtle material, especially from various locations!
  5. Just came back from an afternoon at the FLMNH vertebrate paleontology warehouse sorting through bone bags from the Montbrook site. Richard Hulbert, Collection Manager, was there as well working on cataloging specimens from the trays of catalogable specimens that I'd separated from the scrappy bones last month. He came over to show me a set of 3 neural bones from the carapace of the Trachemys slider turtle that is ubiquitous at the site. I remember seeing these 3 bones (neurals 3 through 5) that run along the midline of the turtle's upper shell (carapace) when I determined they were associated
  6. Hello all Up for trade I offer this nice set of Shark tooth Hill teeth from Kern County California. In return for this set, or individual teeth I would like to get crocodile or crocodile-like (alligator, Phytosaurs...) teeth from as many various locations/species as possible. This group of animals is a bit underappreciated I think, but last time I lend some fossils to the local school, there were some crocodile teeth among them and the kids really loved them and that surprised me a bit. Anyway, I hope I can expand my crocodile collection a bit. These teeth a
  7. Here's a third North American Alligatorid named this year, discovered in the Late Cretaceous Atlantic coast, from New Jersey to Mississippi. This follows a post I made on Friday, Dec. 18, concerning two others discovered this year: 3. Deinosuchus schwimmeri A systematic review of the giant alligatoroid Deinosuchus from the Campanian of North America and its implications for the relationships at the root of Crocodylia ABSTRACT: Deinosuchus is a lineage of giant (≥10 m) Late Cretaceous crocodylians from North America. These were the largest semiaquatic predators in
  8. Two new species of Alligatorids were discovered this year, one in Florida, another in Texas. The one from Florida seems to bridge the extinct A. mefferdi, to the extant A. mississippiensis, sharing characteristics of both. 1. Alligator hailensis New early Pleistocene Alligator (Eusuchia: Crocodylia) from Florida bridges a gap in Alligator evolution ABSTRACT: The American Alligator (Alligator mississippiensis) is one of two species of Alligator in the modern world. It is only distantly related to the other extant species (A. sinensis), with much closer relatives known from

    Costal vs. Scute vs. Osteoderm IDs

    Location: Brazos River, near Brookshire, TX Found: Gravel, sand, low water Estimated time: Pleistocene I've been searching through info on scutes, osteoderms, reptile fossils, and types of turtle shell and plastron parts because we seem to have a lot of those in our area, but I'm having a hard time telling the difference. These are my best guesses, and I'm hoping someone can educate me on the differences. FRAG 1--I think this is a large turtle/tortoise scute fragment, but I'm not sure how to tell the difference between neural, costal, central, etc.

    Crocodile or Alligator?

    Here's a 1" tooth found in Florida. It looks narrower than I'd expect for an alligator, and there are also striations which I believe are prominent in crocodiles. Would it be a crocodile?

    Alligator/Crocodile Tooth Fossil?

    I have here a 25mm long tooth from Bone Valley, Polk County, Florida. It is from the Miocene. The seller advertises this as a crocodile tooth. To me, it looks alligator. I could be wrong; how might one differentiate?

    Scute? Texas

    From North of San Antonio in Cretaceous Zone. Could be a leverite but this one looked a bit weird. Pretty small.
  13. Good morning, please take a look at this artifact I discovered a few weeks ago and help me identify if this is something other than a rock with unique features and patterns. I have spent FAR too much time closely inspecting it and I'm convienced that it is something other than a naturally forming rock. Altough I'm not an expert in geology, I have collected thousands upon thousands of artifacts which is one of the reasons this one clearly stood out to me. The color, shape, pattern, and texture is very distinct. Please note that this artifact is not whole and has bee
  14. I'm seeking feedback on what exactly is this bone-looking structure. It seems to closely resemble the tip of an alligator's toes. Do you think this is something that could happen to naturally forming rock? I cropped in closely to the image so it can be clearly seen. It measures 8mm from top to tip. I would sincerely appreicate any expert insight into what this could be.

    Florida - Peace River

    Hi everyone, I have some stuff that was found in the Peace River, Florida. I think I have an idea what these are, but confirmation would be great! First off, a horse tooth? Could anything more specific be identified? It's 2" Then there's this, and I think it's alligator scute. 1 inch Lastly, alligator tooth partial? 1 inch long
  16. Hey guys, here's a fossil hunt I did with my Dad. We absolutely crushed it with a fossilized dire wolf tooth, a huge bison vertebra, two extinct Florida camel vertebras, a gorgeous extinct peccary tooth, some Giant Armadillo scutes and a few other things to boot. Hope you enjoy!
  17. Hi all, this is my first time posting so please be gentle. I found this in my back yard and I am just looking for help with an ID. In Katy Texas, just west of Houston. It's small, less than 2" total but the fragment is around 1 inch. It's in a sandstone matrix (a couple of geologists told me it is "young" sandstone, whatever that means). I am new to Texas and not familiar with the history here. Based on Googling, it looks to me like maybe a Pleistocene-era alligator claw or possibly snapping turtle claw. It does not look like a tooth, alligator or otherwise. it has a groove running down the si
  18. Here is the link to an open source book published by the Calvert Marine Museum. Skeletal Anatomy of Alligator and Comparison with Thecachampsa, by George F. Klein. 2016, 75 pp. Annotated photographic atlas. (Print copy is also available for purchase.) During the Miocene epoch, large predatory crocodilians lived in a warmer southern Maryland. Their fossilized remains are now found along Calvert Cliffs. By providing a detailed annotated photographic atlas of the skeleton of the living Alligator, this work will help identify the fossilized bony remains of Thecachampsa - the
  19. Found this odd fossil on Myrtle Beach 2-18-2020. Never found one like this. Personal opinion it resembles a crocodile tooth that broke, and point recessed into the larger portion. However it is very solid, and there seem to be no seams to confirm this (and it was a wild guess on my part anyway). Hopefully one of you has a more educated opinion. I'd love to hear from you if so. Thanks for looking and happy hunting.
