  1. Hi these what look to be possible prints Were found on our property in east tennessee on a rock that is in our backyard. I am just wondering if this could possibly be any type of fossil footprint? And if it is possible what could it possibly be? Any opinions or insights as to what this could possibly be would be much appreciated and I thank you all in advance.. Oh and I need to add that I am also posting pictures of a cassette we made that shows detail a lot better than what the pictures could because it's so hard to see it in the rock. It is about 14 inches long and about 6 and a 1/2 inches wide at the longest and widest parts. If you look closely you can see definition of what looks to be claws and the actual print cast that we took doesn't have the middle toe. Because the middle toe wasn't connected with the actual print. It was like it was stuck in, but separate like it was lifted or something, if that makes any sense.. So there's a third toe in the middle, that isn't being shown on the cast. But you can see it on the pictures.. And one last thing to note that may be of importance, There is another print that's tiny, but it's exactly like the big one that's right with the big print.. So we didn't know if maybe this was possibly a mother and child print. If so, the little guy got one print in as well. Thanks again for any opinions or insight.As to what these could possibly be and have a wonderful day!
  2. Hello, ive seen many of those british "dinosaur footprints" from Sussex and wondered if they're real casts that formed naturally or just funny shaped stones that someone interpreted a Dino-footprint in. In case you dont know what im talking about : The bottom one was identfied as ankylosaurid, all others werent identfied. If someone knows if theyre real or not, or if there are some scientific papers about them that you can link in the replies, Thanks !

    Dinosaur Footprint ID

    I have had these tentatively id'ed on the forum before. The seller lists them all as Grallator from the Connecticut River Valley. However the largest print is the one I am questioning I have had various people id it as Eubrontes or Prosauropod etc. Is there any way to get a definite id?

    Ornithopod print?

    I found this possible print in Northern NJ near the Delaware River in Sussex County about 10 years ago. Just looking to ID and/confirm what it may be. There are no signs of clawmarks which is why I'm thinking Ornithopod. Any info or comments are most welcome. Thanks!
  5. Last year when things weren’t so complicated with COVID, we managed to have hunt for dinosaur footprints on the Yorkshire coast. Here’s the beach looking across to Scarborough in the distance. Here are some examples of the prints we came across: Nothing fantastic but all theropods. Heres one in a block that was carry-able: I finally got around to cutting the block to size today although it was freezing outside. So here you go, Theropod Footprint, circa 5 inches long. Middle Jurassic Bathonian (168-166 million years) Scalby Formation Long Nab Member Yorkshire Coast Nr Scarborough Thanks for looking
  6. Hi guys, on a website I found this dinosaur footprint for sale. It was discovered in Germany. In your opinion is it real o fake? Thanks a lot!
  7. Howdy! I'd be very appreciative if you could tell me if these purchases are fake as well. Thanks.
  8. Hi, again please let me know if this is not a genuine Grallator footprint. It's from Languedoc Rousslion France and Lower Jurassic. Again thanks to all for the help. I won't be buying impulsively again.
  9. I found this on a Beach on the west side of Narragansett Bay. I have found numerous plant fossils less than 2 miles away from here and I think that it has some potential to be a footprint. The impression goes deeper where there would be claws and it appears to have 3 toes. I would love to hear what others have to say. It looks very similar to others that I have seen from the Rhode Island Formation (middle to late Pennsylvanian). I will provide more pictures if necessary.
  10. Hi all, I'm currently looking for a grallator track. What do you think about this one? Location is the Connecticut River Valley, Massachusetts. As the seller is a very dedicated fossil collector I'm sure that it is genuine. Best regards Max

    Eubrontes Track?

    I found this in an exposure near a road in the Greenfield/Gill area just west of Turners Falls. Could it be a Eubrontes print? Turners Falls Fm. Thanks!
  12. stevenewbrunswick

    I'm lost, I need help with this one.

    It's apparent there's some coral in one corner atleast but the impression is what confuses me. There almost seems to be a discoloration following the fin like marking. I'd be very appreciative for someone's opinion It was found at the beach, on the edge of the water. Sandy Beach, Shediac, New Brunswick

    Fossil footprint?

    Is this some sort of trace fossil/ footprint? This was in Runswick Bay Yorkshire in solid rock u wouldn’t be able to remove it kind of solid
  14. Crazyhen

    Footprints of Dinosaur?

    Are these footprints of dinosaur? It's about palm size. Found at Guizhou near the site in which Keichousaurus was found.
  15. Just received a Grallator footprint that has been enhanced with wax, which is a usual practice with these footprints. However, I'm thinking of removing the wax and bringing it back to its original state. Does anyone know how I can remove the wax, without damaging the footprint/matrix?

    I used to hunt Paint Branch Stream in College Park MD for fossils as a child (slightly before the Ray Stanford nodosaur find) and never found much. I returned after many years today (place was really bulldozed, shame) and found a great section of formation and tons of wood impression and lignite fossils. Also found two magnificent flat, thin possible footprints. I’m attaching the best one of which I dropped and broke to my great dismay. Let me know if you need additional shots or angles. I really want some insight on if it is a track. Notice that the clean break revealed the cross section which showed folds and sunken areas that match up perfectly with the “track”. Thanks in advance, I’m new here

    Is this a fossil foot?

    I found this near Logan utah, I have another “bone” fossil I found there that I would like to post also. A hater told me it was natural who looked at it in person. I just want to know. I am a proud rock hound. This seems odd to me. I found several horn coral fossils and sea life proof near by. This would have been near a lake bonneville shore at some point. The surrounding seems very sedimentary while the inside seems agatized. Following what looks to be an actual foot and not a print seems you can see the actual outline of how a toe was curled into the mud. There looks to be a total of 3 toes but doesn’t look to be all forward facing by Dino prints I’ve seen so maybe big bird or just the way it laid to rest. I need help please!
  18. Are these real I have never looked into purchasing tracks before. Seller says they are Grallator for Connecticut Valley

    Curious finds. Possible footprint?

    Here are a few pieces from my collection I have been wondering able about. Are any of these fossils? The one on the bottom left corner looks like it could be a footprint top me.
  20. This was found on private land in western MA in the Connecticut River valley. There is 1 clear 'footprint', a possible tail drag, and the imprint of another possible footprint behind it. Any advice, thoughts, or identifications are welcome. Thank you!

    Cretaceous Footprint

    Found in the Maryland Cretaceous Potomac Group, Other prints and bones have come from this spot. Just wanted to get an ID on a potential print.
  22. I had a pretty great birthday 11/09! Still young at 31! Cole woke me up the night before and said after work he is taking me out to Glen Rose Dino Valley State park in Glen Rose, TX and then going ammonite hunting for some decorations for Ruby’s vivarium. (Ruby is my pink morph western hognose snake) Of course I couldn’t go back to sleep before work after that! I know a lot of Texans probably went there during grade school and to some people dinosaurs are too “typical” but for someone who has lived in Indiana & Texas where it’s mostly marine fossils (and in Iceland there were pretty much none!) this was something new and exotic to me, albeit trace fossils. I worked my night shift super daydreamy and stargazy knowing it was going to be a fun day later on, clocked out, and we immediately drove out there! About good 2 hours away where I live and I couldn’t sleep on the way out there. When we finally got there they tried to charge me a child/teen ticket! The park ranger lady thought I was Cole’s teenage daughter. I immediately corrected the ranger and showed her my ID to prove I was 31 to charge me the correct amount (because thats the right thing to do!) and she gasped in shock, complimented my youth and my handmade ammonite earrings, gave me some free goodies along with a map. I haven’t eaten or slept in over a day and honestly it didn’t matter! I was so energetic and excited to be here I didn’t feel any fatigue at all! ^ If ya’ll don’t have the Rockd app- do so! So nifty especially when exploring a new place. We went to all the places on the map that had tracks, I waded in the water of course to see them up close! It was an incredible new intimacy with nature seeing them in person. You hear about them and think “yeah that sounds cool” but your eyes inches from them is whole other experience. The first one I spotted was an Acrocanthosaurus! I crawled immediately down the trail into the Paluxy river and splashed right into the water. After waiting a few minutes for the water to clear I was awarded with this: I reached down and touched it extremely delicately and it sent a jolt of adrenaline through my body like electricity I can’t describe! I got goosebumps like CRAZY. Cole knew I was having one of my “connection with nature moments” and watched me from the dry trail since he is hydrophobic as heck and didn’t want to join in. I’m the total opposite and if there’s enough water at a site- I go wading or swimming even in Texas! I just went on without him in the water and he followed me using the trail. Luckily he had my fanny pack but my phone is waterproof and stayed with me so I could take pictures. Roped off area: I want to share some odd prints I found that I dont think were marked on the map between Wildcat Hallow and the track site by the camping area. I don’t know if the map just needs updated or they are meant to be a “surprise” for the curious explorers but either way I’m sure the rangers know about them and it was fun to see them. Sorry for the finger and shoe marks, I actually tripped in one because I didn't expect any and wasn’t paying attention. (I was spying for any scaley babies at the river bank! Lots of turtles out that day, unfortunately I didn't spot any snakes.) I tried not to directly touch the dry prints. Hoooooly spit. My favorite part is “the ballroom site” where there are HUNDREDS of tracks! Lots of sauropod and predators prints here, the metatarsal tracks of the Acro were ADORABLE. Its amazing how if you look at a set and follow them you can imagine the walking behavior of the animal where they started walking and picking up speed to a sprint. SO. CUTE. My favorite prints were the rear- leg footprints of Sauroposeidon! You can just tell that it stood in thick, firm limy mud the way it was preserved and you can just “feel” it was a hefty animal by the look of the prints. I yelled out loud in awe it was so neat! (There were also just too many tracks to photograph) There were some lines in-between the series of sauropod tracks I was curious if that was the tip-end of its tail that may have left them? map of this track site: Blue is sauropod tracks; red is theropod tracks After this I went over to the deeper water by the swimming hole threw my boots & socks off and just dove right in with my clothes on. (We had pretty much that whole area of the park to ourselves and I brought extra pants & socks anyways!) It felt SO refreshing. I just relaxed enjoying the gorgeous weather ignoring Cole yelling at me (barely audible) worried about brain eating amoeba and wet car seat towels. (He shouldn’t be surprised being my best friend for 13 years now ) Sorry but the water was just… calling me! I was swimming over 100+mya dinosaur tracks and I felt so comfortable in my element. It felt so “right” and I was in full serotonin overload. Exhilarating! The only other fossil I saw besides oysters and dino tracks: Gift shop because I’m such a tourist in my own State. xD I can’t resist a signed book about paleontology! I have yet to read it as of this post but I know it’s about the history of the park and it came with a “dinosaur ballroom dance” CD. We went to Brookshires and then rewarded Cole with the biggest bag of jerky I could find, caffine, paid for a full tank of gas, and said thank you a billion times. This place was worth the visit no matter your age! The nature and hiking trail options itself are enough to visit if you like outdoors. *I have pictures and a few vids on my IG paleopastels as well! After spending most of the entire daylight there so I could dry off we went to my favorite spot in the Goodland Form and plucked out a few fast things on the way back home! I love the Oxytropidoceras the most Cole found me (Yay! So proud!) and I was happy to add another Heteraster to my shelf. I left the Pliotoxasters alone since I have a handful of them from last time. I got a few nice pieces of snake rocks to take home as well. Wet pants, dont care. What’s exciting is my zoic air pen from the UK + a few unique Dactylioceras fossils are coming in the mail soon! A little present to myself. What a great day! That day was the BEST present and best birthday to date! Hopefully this report helps others planning a visit to there! Thanks for reading!

  24. I would like to share one of my favorite fossil to all of you, the footprint of Coelophysis. That's really rare for me. Because it can keep the both side so clear. Hope you all like it too. Thank you f t
