  1. Hello, I am seeking identification on a spscimen I found in Horsethief Canyon (not to be confused with Horseshoe Canyon), just outside of Drumheller, Alberta, Canada. (Dino capital of the world!). I found this specimen above ground while hiking in the coolees of the canyon. It was not nearby anything similar to my knowledge. I took photographs of it under my microscope to assist with identificafion. Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide. Take care.

    Texas Mammal Humerus

    Found this bone on the Brazos River near Houston several weeks ago. I can tell that it's a humerus of some sort, almost definitely mammal based on its size, but unfortunately both ends are missing making an ID difficult. Any help is appreciated!

    Bone or boned?

    Not sure if they're fossilized bone or not. The do stick to my tongue. They're fairly dense and anywhere from 4 to 4½ inches in length.
  4. Hello! I went fossil hunting with my brother and found a tooth shaped cone! We live in rock county of Luverne Minnesota, about 30 minutes away from Sioux Falls South Dakota. We went to a local river nearby that has a sandy riverbank with lots of different kinds of rocks. We have found a lot of small fossils of shells and some coral-like shapes. I found it near the water where it likely washed up. I assumed it was maybe a coral piece because I don’t know anything about teeth. But Google shows a lot of similar images from both teeth and some coral. I’m just not sure how to go about narrowing dow

    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.

    Possible Fossils in Creek Bank; Colorado USA

    Sorry, I hope this isn't making multiple posts. I'm having trouble submitting (I was previously pasting images inline instead of using the "choose files" function). We were exploring a creek outside of Denver, Colorado USA. There was a newly exposed bank about 2.5 meters (8 ft) high. At the bottom was about 1/2 meter (2 ft) of grey clay. We pulled a large clump of clay out and dissolved it in the water. Inside were two possible fossils. We have no idea what we're looking at and have zero experience identifying fossils. Any help is appreciated. Item #1: This looks like a bone, we're
  7. Hey y'all... Another piece from Peace River, Florida... I have no clue what is.... Thank you for your time... =)
  8. Hi all, hoping I found something with these 3 pieces but thinking prob one or more are those tricky concretions I'm not too experienced with yet. Thanks for any help in advance!!!
  9. Dear All, I want to buy a dinosaur bone slice but I also see the Palm or some Wood slices are very similar. Are you able to see the difference between what is wood from what is dinosaur bone at the attached photos? Best regards. Alvaro.
  10. During one of my hikes exploring the badlands in Central Alberta Canada (Scollard formation) near the Red Deer river I found this strange flat & thin piece of what appears to be fossilized bone. As you can see from the pictures it fans outward and it's quite thin, to me it almost looks similar to a aquatic flipper although I obviously am not sure at all what this could be. My instinct wants to say turtle piece possibly? Any help to ID this cool fossil would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

    Devonian bone bit - fish tooth?

    This little bone chip is from the Dundee Limestone (Middle Devonian) of Ohio. I find a lot of bone fragments in these rocks, but this one seems different. In particular, along one edge there look like there might be serrations, so maybe a tooth fragment? It measures approximately 1cm at the largest dimension. Thanks for any input.
  12. Could someone help identify these 2 pieces of bone (found same beach but separate locations), beach is known for fossil finds (I have found fossilized bone there before but that was obviously fossilized and I am not sure what to make of this - is it fossilized (it feels different than bone but I don't believe it is fossilized)? Marine mammal (new or old)? or simply a piece of cow bone? (I think it will be hard for anyone to identify the smaller bone but you never know) Thank you very much for your help
  13. These came from creek with mix of QAL and QT, first set I'm thinking the bigger one is deer phalange, not sure about the smaller one. Next one I'm going with croc vert, threw in the antler wondering how to tell if it's fossil, does the burn test work with it as well? I'm not very good with bones so might be wrong, appreciate the help!
  14. Hey! I was wondering if anyone knew any good places to buy custom stands/displays for bones or how to make them. Thanks! (sorry didn't realize this was fossil id and I don't know how to delete it)
  15. Not sure if it matters where it came from but just in case, was in a mix of QAL and Eagle Ford. Thought it was bone when I picked it up but it felt funny like plastic and weighed nothing. Figured it would float but didn't, thought surely it would melt with flame but didn't, and no smell. I've shown it with piece of worn bone for comparison, but I'm still perplexed. What else could it be? Last picture is the bone.

    turtle marginal?

    I came upon this bone while sorting my old boxes. It looks like the dorsal edge of a turtle marginal. I say this because of the slit on the inner surface resembles the split marginals make. It is the surface pattern that puzzles me. I am unfamiliar with the freshwater turtles from this area and hoping someone can identify this.
  17. Hello everyone, while I was getting some exercise exploring the badlands here in central Alberta (Red Deer river valley Scollard formation I believe) I found a piece of fossilized bone that must have been recently exposed due to spring thaw. I am no guru however it appears to have some predation marks on it (third picture left side) & to me looks like it could be a leg bone? I'm looking for some help confirm these are in fact predation marks & also to ID the bone itself if possible. I know its difficult due to it being just a small fragment but any help or additional info would be gr
  18. Hello everybody. I have a question: I saw this online, according to the description it is a fragment of dinosaur bone from the morrison formation, found in Utah. I know that it is very difficult to attribute specific species to such fragments. However, I would like to know, at least, what genre it could be. My personal opinion is that it resembles a piece of ankylosaurid skin plaque. The bone has been polished on one side, which can be seen in the fifth photo. That is the question that I would like you to help me solve please.

    Help ID'ing Cape Town Find

    Hi there! My girlfriend and I finally managed to get to the fossil spot here in Cape Town - South Africa (a spot where fossilized shark teeth and whale bone wash up onto the beach) and we are both hoping that what we have found is actually fossilized bone! If any of you could confirm what this is I would be extremely grateful!

    Does anyone know what this is?

    Hello I found this at my local beach in Dorset yesterday. I've told my 6-year old that it's a dinosaur bone but my wife is very doubtful. Does anyone have any ideas to back me up? Many thanks

    A little help?

    As mentioned in my opal post this was also in the mystery box and was looking for any ideas. About the size of a deck of cards.
  23. Hey Everyone, Found these two today at the NSR, Delta County, Tx. I do believe I found my first crustacean but would like verification. Maybe species to have it mark correctly. Do I just soak it in clear elmers glue and water like the bones to help preserve it? Second is a weird bone. I thought it might be paddle bone but I look and with my limited experience I do not think so. Great if it is, but if not, what is it? Thanks in advance for any responses.

    Just Weird...What is this???

    Ok found this Odd thing at first thought it might be petrified wood but I tried looking at it through a microscopic camera and could not find any of the basic fossil wood cell structure that I normally find on petrified wood. There are places on it that look mesh like? ....well I took a close up of it ... if it were some type of bone the inside would be darker right?....just not sure with this one. Found in a gravel load from the bed of the Brazos River near the West Houston Texas area.

    Microscope enlargement

    Hello! I tried to look at a texture of a rock under a microscope to see if it's a fossil and I realised that I have no idea what's the right enlargement to see the unick texture that bones have. If anyone knows what is the right enlargement to see the texture of a bone under a microscope please tell me.
