  1. 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!

    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

    Marine reptile tooth ID Lyme Regis

    Hi all, Bought this tooth online a while back. It was sold to me as "Ichthyosaurus platyodon" (which I understand to mean Temnodontosaurus platyodon) from Lyme Regis. Likely found by the seller themselves, as I know they occasionally collect fossils there. However, for the following reasons, I'm not sure about this attribution: Overall, the tooth doesn't look like your typical ichthyosaur tooth to me: It has more of an oval rather than round cross-section It's labolingually flattened Messial and distal carinae run the full length of the cr
  5. I'll start with the jrf vertebrae which I believe to be a hadrosaur cervical wondering if it is possible to narrow it down to a species if possible? And again anyone who is taking the time to look over these I thank you very much in advance.

    Calvert find - Rock or tooth?

    Found this at Calvert today. Was about to toss it aside as a rock, but I thought it might be a tooth. Possibly a crocodile tooth or just a rock pretending to be a tooth?

    Mosasaur or croc?

    Hi all, I recovered this split tooth from Big Brook park in Monmouth, NJ (late cretaceous). I've checked a couple websites that give information on Big Brook, and I can't conclude either way if it is mosasaur or croc (or similar to a croc). I included close-ups to show enamel, and held it to show the shape of the tooth towards its root. Thanks, Steve

    Dyrosaurus Phosphaticus

    I recently bought this Dyrosaurus skull, it appears to be a juvenile. It has some nose damage and 4 teeth showing on each side. Not being an expert paleontologist but an amateur, I was thinking the teeth look a lot like mosasaur teeth. Are they related? Sue
  10. Hey everyone! I'm currently looking for any teeth from the Oxford Clay, especially those of plesiosaurs and teleosauroid crocs. In exchange, I can offer a variety of crocodile teeth from the Jurassic Tiourarén Formation of Niger like (but not limited to) the ones below.
  11. Since Thanksgiving I'd only been out collecting once. Snow and cold, car repair, work, and other personal matters effectively kept me out of the field. Finally, yesterday I was able to get back out again. I wasn't waiting for ideal conditions and it was COLD!!!!! Temperature only reached 38 degrees and there was little sun for warmth. Winter collecting for me is usually the Cretaceous brooks of Central New Jersey, two hours south of where I live in New York City's northern burbs. Most of the time I go with frankh8147, a great companion, but unfortunately not free that day. He was out collectin

    A box with Kem Kem stuff

    I just recieved a box with a random assortment of Kem Kem fossils and I was wondering if some of you might help out with some of the ID's 1) A fish scute, Adrianaichthys (Lepidotes) pankowskii would be my guess. 2) Another Adrianaichthys (Lepidotes) pankowskii scale? 3) A small bone, turtle perhaps? 4) Crocodile osteoderm 5) Crocodile osteoderm 6) I often see similar fossil sold as Kem Kem coprolites 7) base of an Onchopristis num
  14. 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!

    Sarcosuchus or Suchomimus?

    I have here a 1.5" tooth that was sold to me as Sarcosuchus from the Cretaceous of Niger. It's been brought to my attention that this may instead be Suchomimus. After comparing photographs, I believe that Suchomimus is accurate. I'd appreciate more eyes on this. Which one might this be? Thank you, Bellamy
  16. Hi all, I had posted about this tooth years ago and the conclusion back then was that its preservation was too poor for any proper ID. I am hoping that with new information we can at least determine if this is a crocodile or theropod. I discovered today that this tooth preserved some serrations First up, this tooth was acquired from a source with many Mongolian material. He called this an Alioramus tooth but I am not comfortable calling it that yet Secondly, a museum curator (who has handled Mongolian material) examined this tooth in person. He concluded this tooth was
  17. I posted this one alongside a few other teeth, but it didn't get as much traction as I hoped. It's the one I was most curious about, and extremely unusual to me, so I figured posting it individually would be helpful. This is a Moroccan crocodile tooth from Kem Kem. It is serrated, and dagger-shaped, 1.02" long and 0.32" wide. Out of those I have consulted, Troodon proposed Hamadasuchus, though yielded that the dagger-shape is not consistent with those he had seen with those: I've essentially used all of my leads over these few days. If anyone has a different theory, I would

    Deinosuchus

    I have here a tooth alleged to be Deinosuchus from the Aguja of Brewester County, Texas. It's 1" long. Does it appear to be so? And how would this be differentiated from other crocodile teeth in that formation? Thank you, Bellamy

    Sarcosuchus sp?

    I have here two teeth identified as Sarcosuchus sp. from Kem Kem, Morocco. They don't look like any Sarcosuchus teeth I've seen. Many here are more knowledgeable than I am about crocodiles. Based on these views, can they be identified as such? These are two different teeth. The first one is 4.2 cm long and nearly 2 cm across the base. The latter is 7 cm and 2.5 cm across the base. Thank you, Bellamy

    part vertebra croc?

    I have this piece, crocodile?, which I think is a part of a vertebra?. It looks like the are zygapophyses visable and I think the grove should be the neuralcanal. But I am not sure, con someone shine a light on it? Measurements: 70x60x36mm Thank you

    Moroccan Crocodile Tooth

    I have a 1" dagger-shaped tooth from the Kem Kem. I bought it as a crocodile tooth. The way it's shaped I assumed it was a fish fang, but the enamel looks pretty much like a crocodile's. Here are the only photographs I have access to for the time; is it identifiable? Thank you, Bellamy
  23. Hi, this just arrived along with a few other teeth, and I was wondering if it was possible to identify which species it could be. It’s a Crocodile indet. tooth from the Morrison Formation Is all I know. Thank you for any reply’s

    Help with UK Dinosaur/Reptile Vertebra ID

    I'm trying to help someone ID this vertebra found in Gloucester, UK a few years ago. It's from a Jurassic site and I'm pretty sure it's a theropod vertebra but was wondering if anyone on the forum could help out? I have a theropod tooth from the same place which I might post soon in the hope of narrowing down an ID too. Thanks in advance!

    Moroccan Jaw

    Guess who's back I have this piece of I think a left lower jaw from either a crocodile or dinosaur. If I look at the toothsockets they are for round teeth, so crocodile (looking at the size Elosuchus?) or spinosaurid. I am leaning more towards a crocodil. Size: 18x6x2cm Thank you
