  1. Hi, new to the forum here. I found this on the banks of a river today. I think it's a either an old tree branch or a bone? Not sure what it is. Any ideas? I live in western NY if that helps.

    Hawaii Modern Bone Beach Find

    Bone is 6 inches across and was found on a beach in Hawaii.

    Fossil bone fragment?

    I found this in a creekbed. The creek has cut down into a deep layer of clay about 40 feet and lots of interesting things are falling out of the clay. To me it looks like it could be part of a mouth with tooth sockets.
  4. Hello, We found this item in a crop field when out on a hike and would greatly appreciate any help to identify whether it is a bone or something else. It looks like the end of a bone, the ball bit that goes into the joint or maybe not? We first thought it was human or mammal but then saw it was fossilized rock with signs of wear and tear and maybe teeth marks. Also we can see what looks like fossilized pinkish marrow in the middle of the bone that is more prominent than the picture shows (sorry) with little air pockets. There was also lots of rocks and interesting bits and piece

    The strange thing

    From Madagascar What kind of bone is this? Is he a coccyx? Can you tell what kind of animal it is? There are two strange protrusions at the junction of the two spines. They are like lead shots into the bones. Thank you for your answers.

    Help needed on possible skull fragment

    My wife found this chunk of bone at Myrtle Beach, SC yesterday evening. I think it is a skull fragment. Can anyone confirm or deny and maybe identify a species? Thanks The photos are from both sides of the bone. #1,4,&5 are what I'm calling interior.
  7. Hello everyone, as im following up on my previous post while im on vacation someone tipped me to visit a local Fossil shop in a small town. So they have a massive Spinosaur Skull displayed and what interests me the most a huge claw with bone. sadly i had a language barrier and someone from my friends translated a bit for me. The shop owner was not very friendly and seemed a little suspicious with my questions ‘are they authentic’ and ‘where lies there origin’. He then told me they are purely authentic and that he was doing this for 35 years. He took it personal that I ask
  8. 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!
  9. Good day everyone, I was given this cetacean vertebrae by a local who combs the beach for fossils everyday, could anyone potentially identify it - it is pretty roughed up. Thank you.

    Help with suspected carpal bone

    Would greatly appreciate if anyone has thoughts on this bone found on the beach in Myrtle Beach. It is triangular, laterally compressed, and has a concave articulating surface on the long edge. I’m thinking some type of carpal bone? Turtle or dolphin, maybe. Thanks in advance!
  11. Found these at my ranch in the dirt pile, I appreciate your ideas

    Big Brook NJ

    Hi. It’s been over a year since I have been out hunting. I finally was able to get in a couple hunts in last week. I found the usual teeth and other fossils. It just felt so good to finally get back at it! Wanted to post some of the nicer items I found. Enjoy: 1 and 2. Scapanorhynchus texanus - Goblin shark 3 and 4. Cretolamna - Mackeral shark 5. Coprolite? I am so hoping I am right about this because it will be a first for me! @frankh8147 @The Jersey Devil 6. Bone - probably modern but

    Fused joint or healed fracture?

    Not sure what to think of this one. I usually don’t find joints that fuse together like this. It almost looks like a bone break that has healed and fossilized.

    Chunkasaur or something else?

    Could be nothing identifiable, just took this cause it had a texture I’ve never seen before and it might be something cool that I simply haven’t seen yet. dinosaur park fm
  15. I have some new additions to my collection and a few of them are missing labels. The minerals are well labeled in this collection but the fossils are not. Most are classic specimens from well known localities so no problems there. This bone however has me thinking. Its short, thick, and stocky (115mm x 76mm x 58mm). My first thought was sloth/glypto. ?? Any help as always is appreciated.

    Aquia Formation Bone Fragment

    Here I have attached pictures of a recent find I made in Maryland’s Aquia Formation. It’s a Paleocene bone from what I think is a turtle. What do y’all think? It’s very thin whatever it is.

    Equine distal metacarpal? Recent?

    Found this in creek that is in Trinity river flood plain, consists of QT and QAL where I find bison bones. I think this is horse but it is large for a cannon bone, it passes flame test but unsure if it's fossil so double checking my ID.
  18. While hiking in the Central Alberta Badlands Near Toleman in Red Deer River Valley came across two pieces of fossilized matter that looked very different than most of the bone fragments I have encountered while on similar outings. If I was to take a wild & uneducated guess I would say they look like they could be osteoderms? Any help to ID these strange pieces would be greatly appreciated. Thank you In advance.
  19. I found both of these a couple days ago on my last trip to Big Brook in the same pan, and both have a very similar texture and appearance that leads me to believe they could have belonged to the same animal. I shared both via PM with @Trevor, who suggested the vertebra was likely Mosasaur (but that it might have a diagnostic ID), and that the bone was some type of marine reptile. Just thought I'd re-post here in case others might have any thoughts to add to that. Also, if either is worth taking in for a more diagnostic identification, where/to whom should I take them? I have heard there is a m

    Human bone?

    Hey guys, we found this petrified bone? today at the baltic sea and we don"t know if it is a human bone or somerhing else.... It is about 3,2 cm long and 1,2 cm (0,6 cm) wide Please help us
  21. Hello everyone, I have just discovered this Forum, and I have to say it looks amazing! I feel like I've come to the right place, it has everything regarding Fossils and knowledge of people. I hope to find some additional Fossils here for my collection I have just a few questions: Is it actually legal to dig up Dinosaur Fossils? Im just wondering as an example, if you dig up a Triceratops in Canada, or a Tyrannosaur Rex in the States (what would be awesome) is this allowed to search/dig for them? Can you just visit a digging site and start on your own, how does it work?

    Devonian Fish Bone to ID????

    I had previously posted this in a Post on a fossil hunting excursion to a Devonian site in Iowa. Since then, the bone has been cleaned up and substantially more bone exposed. I am hoping someone might ID the bone. But probably just a bone chunk! You don't know if you don't ask!!! Mike
  23. I've found small pieces of delicate jaw bone with teeth at big brook in the past, which I believe to be enchodus. This one looked like a much more heavy duty version of the same, so I was wondering if it might just be a larger specimen of the same species. I've photographed it next to one of the smaller fragments of jaw just for comparison. Thanks! @Trevor
  24. Hiya everyone I’m interested in this bone block the seller says it’s a mosasaur bone block any help on if the id is right would be great and if the matrix is original many thanks
  25. This was found on a dive in Venice FL, where there are lots of shark teeth, whale, dugong fossils, as well as land mammal fossils (mostly horse, mammoth). (As most of you know, this area transitioned from sea bed to dry land numerous times as ocean levels fluctuated, so there is a mix of land and marine animal deposits on top of one another) I almost discarded this one, but decided to query anyone interested for some help. It seems to be more than a fragment, but I'm not sure. It's obviously quite symmetrical. The "bottom" is slightly concave. There is a distinct seam detail at
