    Ramanessin Bone Fragment?

    Out hunting on the Ram, came across this odd piece, my mind immediately jumped to a bone fragment of a large aquatic reptile, the holes in it are like nothing I've ever seen, and it feels lighter than a rock of similar size. So, I'm hopeful, any ideas or help would be awesome! Thanks guys!

    Pleistocene-Thick Bone Frag

    I found this chunky bone end fragment in the Brazos River, sandy gravel matrix, Pleistocene era. This may be a chunkosaur, but since there are at least a couple of possible identifying characteristics here, I'm hoping that someone with more experience than I have could help me narrow this down. Didn't seem to fit calcaneus or astragalus, but it does show a groove and two points on one side that are pretty well defined. Image One: Flat face Image Two: View of taller side Image Three: View of shorter side

    Iron Hill Museum Fossils

    I recently took a trip to the Iron Hill Museum in Newark, Delaware. (Which has amazing displays by the way. Its small, but fascinating.) There, I bought a small bag of about 10 fossils. I knew what most of them were, but there are a few I am unsure of what they actually are. I was wondering if anyone on the Forum could help me. All I know is that all of the Fossils were found in either Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, or Pennsylvania. 1. This one I was told that this is some kind of bone fragment. 2. This is also another bone fragment. 3. I think this is a bone fragment.

    Help with ID of possible bone fragment

    Hello all - this is my first post here. I am posting a possible bone fragment my son and I found while beach combing here in Texas. It is from McFadden Beach near Galveston on the Texas coast after a recent storm. It is about 5 cm in length, 2 cm in with and ranges from 2mm to 5mm in thickness. It feels more like stone than bone - but I am not an expert in this field.

    bone fragment? Flagstaff, Arizona

    I found this and initially thought it was uniquely shaped petrified wood. We have found a lot of petrified wood in the same spot. However, all of the wood that I have found has some evidence of tree rings in the cross section. This does not. The "bottom" or blunt end, looks more like worn bone to my untrained eye. I know that identifying what kind of bone will be impossible, but I am just looking for confirmation that it is indeed bone, and not petrified wood, or just a strange mineral structure in rock. It was found near the Little Colorado River, near Gray Mountain, Arizona, which is a

    Teeth/Bone ID

    Hello! Last time I was here I posted about 50 pieces of barnacle which I thought were teeth. Good news is, this time I actually have teeth! I sent these in to another fossil ID place, and they identified a few of my teeth as possible lemon shark, and the 8th from the left as a possible C. hastalis. If anyone can help identify more specifically what sharks the teeth came from I'd really appreciate it!! Also, the big brown fragment on the far right in these pictures they identified as some kind of bone fragment- maybe it's a long shot but do any of you know what it could have come fr

    Sherman, TX bone fragments and rocks

    Found a bunch of specimens from Oak Creek in Sherman TX. Is the first and fourth picture fossilized wood ? The second picture is very light and porous.
  9. Hello everyone! I was at the beach today looking at the rocks and other things washed ashore rather than paying attention to my partner like a good hubby, and came across these two items which looked kind of like bone fragments. Can anyone please help me determine whether these could be bone fragments or whether they are concretions/nodules? Thanks in advance!
  10. Not sure what this might be, but I thought is was the most intriguing find of the day. Beautiful patina, weighty for its size. Very old?

    Bison hoof core?

    I found this bone fragment out on Edisto Beach, SC. I've identified it as a bison hoof core, but I'm not exactly knowledgeable in the field so I'm guessing I'm wildly wrong. Its about 2.5 inches. I have more angles if necessary, the bottom is concave. This is just the max amount of photos I can upload in this post. Thanks in advance!
  12. Hi Everyone, I found an interesting large bone fragment in the Brazos River, outside of Harris County, Texas. The fragment has a thick sidewall, so I am guessing it is from a large mammal, possibly mammoth. The thing that I can't wrap my head around is the odd pocket-like texture exhibited on one side of the bone. Could these odd pockets help in the identification of this fossil? Also, I have attached a picture of 2 antlers from the Brazos. They both look like they are whitetail deer antlers to me. One is much larger than the other, possibly due to age and nutrition of

    North Sea bone fragment

    This piece was found on the beach Domburg, Zeeland (the South of the Netherlands) , along the Dutch North sea coast. It was thrown ashore during a recent sand suppletion. It is likely from the Pleistocene. A friend of mine told me I might be a part of a pelvis, but I am unsure. Any help would be appreciated. Floris

    Small mystery, beach find, antler base?

    Hello, i have a small bone fragment found on a beach on the James river in Virginia. It is very dense and all of the grain seems to generate from a central point. At first it seems like a fragment of a vertebra, but comparing to others I have found it seems different. Curious to see if anyone has any other ideas, thanks for your time,

    Help Identifying!

    Trying to find out anything on this fossil. Thinking maybe Moroccan, and teeth attached to a jaw? I can't find anything close to it.

    Help with identifying bone fragment

    Hello - I wouldn't normally post a fragment of a bone seeking help with identification given how difficult it can be to determine the specific animal with just a photo of a piece; however, I found this piece awhile back and was going through my phone looking at other pictures and realized I never posted my question. The pattern on the bone is what makes me think someone with much more knowledge about the fauna that can be found in that area might be able to make a positive identification. If not, no big deal but figured it was worth an ask. This was found amonst the rocks along the beach at Pu

    Is this a fossil bone?

    Hello I was wondering if anyone could identify this fragment, which I think might be a fragment of bone, but am unsure. I don't have a lot of knowledge when it comes to identifying Pleistocene fossils.
  18. Hello everyone, had a super quick trip to the cretaceous creeks of new jersey and found this particularly interesting large bone fragment, likely it is a chunk of miscellaneous bone material but it reminds me alot of a scute like ankylosaurus or some sort of other bone scute especially the edge, or from maybe something like a large turtle but I am entirely not sure if it's dinosaur, marine reptile, etc or if there is anyway to tell, looks super suspicious to me anyways so if anyone has any ideas I'd definitely love to hear them. (If more pictures are needed I will definitely be able to get som

    Moroccan small mystery

    Here is a link to an entry of a post in the "fossil preparation" topic. I was hoping to get some opinions as to the ID of the mystery fragment cited; and reasoned this may be a more productive placement. Thanks for any help.
  20. Hi! I'm new to the World of Fossils and had a question about this item. I found it online. It is being sold by Smoky Mountain Relic Room Rendezvous. It is described as a T-rex dinosaur bone fragment. I was wondering if anyone on this forum knows if this seems legitimate, because the price was low and I had thought that T-Rex fossils are usually more expensive. Any responses are appreciated!

    Skull fragment?

    Appears to be a bone fragment with air cells found in the Peace River. I was guessing skull fragment but would appreciate an expert opinion.

    Does this look like bone?

    Hello, Sorry for the not so great equipment that I am using. Hopefully, you will be able to see enough detail to verify. Thank you.

    Bone Fragment?

    I found this while looking for fossils off the coast of Lake Huron. A local Geologist said that some of his friends had found dinosaur teeth in that area, so maybe Mesozoic in age?

    Eagle Ford Possible Bone Fragment

    Please help my wife ID this possible bone fragment she found. It is symmetrical and it appears to be part of a skeletal bone that broke off at matrix rock's edge. The formation is Eagle Ford Lower Bouldin Flags shell hash layer. Found with small Ptychodus occidentalis and P. decurrens and multiple regular shark's teeth and some other smaller bone frags. Dimensions are 54 mm long by 38 mm tall and 16 mm wide at fracture tapering to ~1 mm wide. It is reportedly in the same layer that a 4" Tylosaurus tooth was found by another collector years ago - which does not match the biostratigraphic recor

    Bone Fragment

    I literally joined the forum 5 minutes ago, and I am still learning about the technicalities of paleontology. So if I use terms or vocabulary in the wrong context please excuse me. I have recently acquired a bone fragment that was found in the Hell Creek Formation near Jordan Montana,and it is from the Late cretaceous period. This is all I currently know about this fossil. I need help identifying the species that this bone fragment is from. Thanks for the help !
