    Which animal did we find?

    My sun found this in the mountains, in Aragon, Spain on a mountain by accidence, while playing. It looks like a little bird, we can see a print of little feathers. But the skeleton doesn't really look like the ones we found online. Who can help us? We are curieus.

    Avisaurus tooth

    From the album: Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    I found this tooth while looking through matrix from a productive conglomerate site while at home. At first I had no clue what it could be, but the consensus on its ID thread was that likely belonged to Avisaurus. While its hard to conceptualize birds with teeth from our modern perspective, that was the norm for many genera in the Cretaceous. Glad to have found this one and recognize it as a tooth.
  3. Hello, any thoughts on this? It is sold as pterosaur remains--jaw pieces and a vertebra, from Ouled Abdoun Basin, Morocco. From the Cretaceous--unfortunately from an old German collection, so the information is limited. 240mm x 105mm Now, I think it is misidentified and is actually a bird--possibly Dasornis because on the first pic, the jaw has a long tooth and then a few of the smaller mini "teeth" which matches a drawing I found in a paper of similar birds, which I've also attached. If it's Dasornis or a bird, then that would mean it isn't Cretaceous in ag

    Cretaceous bird limb

    Hello, Thoughts on this? It intrigued me because I don't see Cretaceous bird fossils for sale often and would be a nice, unusual addition. The only bird I see listed as from Judith River is Hesperornis. But the only picture really I can find of Hesperornis limbs, the bones look much too fat and too thick. It is listed as a bird limb bone, from Judith River Formation. Seller gave me quite specific location info in a message -- 20 miles South of the Canada border, on the edges of Milk River escarpment, Hill County, Montana. On a layer where Hadrosaurid fossils have been f

    Unhatched bird fossil??

    Hi folks, I've found this object which, to my untrained eye, looks just like small unhatched bird. Would like to here your opinions! I've found it in my garden (NL)... I can post more and better pictures here later, for now I hope the image below suffices.

    Is this bird bone fossil or not?

    I have a hard time telling if bones are fossils unless they are stone or fresh enough to scrape easily. Any help would be appreciated in learning this. Didn't take pic of end but it's hollow.

    Hell Creek Small Digit

    I found this tiny, slender bone at a Hell Creek microsite during my trip to the Dakotas in 2019 with PaleoProspectors. I'm not sure what it came from, but I'm hoping it's theropod, avian or otherwise. It's missing a section of the outer layer of bone and I believe the interior is hollow & filled in with the ironstone common in the formation. The dimensions are 1.7 cm in length and about 3 mm in width. I would appreciate any feedback you may have. In situ shot from the site: The closeup shots did not come out exactly how I wanted them lighting and detail wise. If you would l

    Two Hollow Bones

    I found a couple of interesting fossil bones yesterday along the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene exposure) in Maryland. Any ideas to what these belonged? #1 - My guess is this one is a bird bone. It's smooth (inside and out) and hollow all the way through to the closed end. If this is from a bird, do you know what type of bone it is (anatomically)? And any thoughts on what type of bird it might be from? I realize that isolated and broken bones can't usually be identified too specifically, but this seems fairly large, so I'm wondering if there might be good candidates for type of bird.
  9. Hello all! my wife has ordered my early Xmas present. What should I be looking for, in authenticity? I watched the pawn stars episode with the elepahnt bird egg lol and it appears to have the elongated marks they talked about. 12" in height....here are a couple photos! Thanks for the input!

    Nice bird bone from the Zandmotor

    Hi everyone! Last week I found this nice, rather big, bird bone on the Zandmotor (Netherlands). It is most likely late Pleistocene in Age (Weichselian) but could possibly be older (though I doubt this is any older than early Pleistocene, given the conservation). I believe it to be a femur of a rather large species of bird. My first thought was the great auk, Pinguinus impennis, but I think my bone is probably not sturdy/thick enough for such a heavy bird. I'm currently thinking it might be something like a large sea gull, but this is just guess work, and birds are definitely not my area o

    sternum?

    Dear all, New here! Can someone tell me from which animal this came? Found with a butch of bison fossils. Thank you! Fossil Digger
  13. Hello guys and gals! I would like your views on something my best friend and I found some time ago. We were out on a little road trip and stumbled upon a pile of dredged up shells and what not. Always looking for something interesting, we went ahead and took a few scoops worth home. What we found piqued our interest. Something that looked like a wing. It felt like plastic so my friend held a lighter to it. Didn’t do anything, no smoke no smell. We got to searching the net and a number of things came up that looked vaguely familiar. Nothin

    An archosaurian egg ?

    Hello everyone, I am a Belgian student in biology, and I love paleontology. Last week, I was walking on a slag heap near my home in the town of Marcinelle, at the coal mine called "Bois du Cazier". My attention was mainly focused on fossils of carboniferous plants (sigilaria, cordaites, calamites, etc ...). But at one point, I picked up this pretty little pebble which seemed to me to be a fossilized archosaurian egg. The slag heaps do not really respect the order of the geological layers, so it is very difficult for me to pin a year on it.

    Bird Talon?

    Hello, I was looking for shark teeth at Holden Beach, NC USA. I found this odd bird talon shaped object. It is hollow, but doesn't look like a shell. I don't have a ruler handy, It is just estimate about 3 cm long and about about 1cm wide at the thickest end.
  19. Hi everyone, I've been hesitant to post this fossil on here for a while as I didn't know if I wanted to hear a response which would contradict what I had hoped this would be. However, I recognize that to maintain a reliable and accurate collection I would have to properly identify what I found. The fossil in question is a possible partial egg that I found last year in the White River formation of Wyoming (Late Eocene/Early Oligocene) w/PaleoProspectors. This formation is known to produce fossil bird and reptile eggs (in fact, someone found a large, complete egg on this ranch the week before I

    Help Identifying Hell Creek Bones

    I've just cleaned up a big batch of Hell Creek bones and I'm struggling to ID a few of them. I have some ideas as to a few, but others I'm clueless (and I'm sure some won't be able to be ID'd beyond indeterminate dino/reptile bone). These four are all pretty big. The largest, second from the right, is just over 6.5 inches. I've attached a picture of that one before I repaired it as it has very thick walls. That bone and second from the left are very heavy for their size, so I'm assuming they're theropod (probably leg bones). I haven't a clue with the other two, but they're an
  22. I've always been fascinated by the Cretaceous sea and its myriad of terrifying carnivores, many that would've made Jaws look meek. After watching BBC's Sea Monsters, I made it my goal to compile a box of sea monster fossils. I started this journey 10 years ago, and finally completed the box recently. Allow me to present my Predators of the Cretaceous Sea collection, and take you on a journey to the most dangerous sea of all times. The box measures 20.25 inches long. Inside are 24 unique predator fossils. I will introduce them from left to right, top to bott

    Fun with 3D Printing Fossils

    So recently my father bought a 3D printer and we've been experimenting printing some cool fossils for a while now. It's a really cool technology. Though it can take a while to print a piece the results are really quite cool. A life size Archaeopteryx can take a few days to print if you don't keep printing during the night. Finishing up the prints afterwards can also take a bit of time. Cleaning off all the supports and sanding down rough surfaces can be quite the process. Then there's painting depending on the desired result of course. There are actually a lot of nice things that c

    Peace River ungual

    Spending some time in the house picking through some micro-matrix I collected last time I was out on the Peace River. The fine gravel is more worn and polished than from other sites (like Cookiecutter Creek) but that is to be expected since the Peace is a much larger waterway with a greater flow (especially in the summer when the gravel is being deposited). Most of the small shark teeth tend to be worn as well but not as much as you'd find from specimens picked up from the surf zone of places like Caspersen Beach in Venice, FL which produce a lot of teeth that look like they've been through a
