    Shark cartilage?

    Dear TFF friends, It's been a while since I visited our fossil lovers community. I hope you're all doing well. Few months ago, I went to my favorite late cretaceous spot in Japan. Himenoura formation is a marine formation from the late Cretaceous (Santonian) where ammonites, bivalves, shark teeth, and crustaceans can be found. Last time I went there, I found the following fossil. In is quite small, and at first glance I thought it was some kind of bone fragment or small tooth's enamel negative but after observing it under microscope, I was able t

    Please help me ID this Fossil

    I saw this fossil for sale in Colorado labeled as a Archaeopteryx (second picture) by it it looks nothing like an Archaeopteryx. I google image searched the picture and the only look alike was on a website for Japanese travel photos (first picture) and I believe it was at a dinosaur museum in Japan. I'll put both pictures below! Please help me identify

    Megamouth shark teeth?

    Hello, I see these shark teeth from an auction. I don't know if they are fossilized or come from a recent animal. Unfortunately the photos are not very good. I still wonder what kind of shark these teeth could have come from. My first idea was Megamouth shark, but teeth of these are of course very rare. On the other hand, it might fit because the teeth are found on Japan's coast and Megamouth sharks are also found there (if there are recent species). Can you help me with the ID? I'm really not quite sure, I've never seen teeth like this before. Thank you and best re
  7. Hello Fossil Friends, Saw this in the news today so thought I’d share: ******************** World's smallest dinosaur egg fossil discovered in Japan Source Link A team of researchers said Tuesday it has discovered the world's smallest dinosaur egg fossil, measuring about 4.5 centimeters by 2 cm, in western Japan. The fossil of the egg, estimated to have weighed only about 10 grams more than 100 million years ago, was found in a stratum dating back to the Early Cretaceous period in Tamba, Hyogo Prefecture, according to the

    Paper request

    Does anyone have a copy of this Japanese paper? M. Murata. 1969. Molluscan fauna of the Toyoma Formation (Late Permian). Saito Ho-on Kai Museum of Natural History Research Bulletin 38:1-22 http://fossilworks.org/?a=taxonInfo&taxon_no=194381 I am trying to identify a Euphemitopsis gastropod. I need any photos and descriptions of Euphemitopsis kitakamiensis. Thanks for you help, John @David in Japan
  18. Last weekend was almost surreal; I've always been looking to go hunting for ammonites at some point, but the opportunity finally arose while I visited Hokkaido, Japan last week. Ammonites from Hokkaido have always been captivating; they definitely represent some of the best the Asian continent has to offer, and are also known to produce the biggest in the continent. In the far north of Hokkaido, iridescent ammonites could be found, while in the central region, heteromorphs are more common. In very rare occasions across the island, titanic ammonites are lifted out of the streams.
  19. Small news from Japan: yesterday, Pr Kobayashi presented at the japanese paleontological society, his work on an hadrosaurid dinosaur found few years ago in hokkaido and nicknamed Mukawa-ryu. According to him, it would be a new species. The 8th new dinosaur species found in Japan. Name will be released soon with the publication. http://www.asahi.com/sp/ajw/articles/AJ201906190084.html

    Late Cretaceous marine vertebrate's bone

    Hi TFF friends, how are you? I would like to have your opinion concerning the following fossil. It's a bone I found a while ago in the Himenoura formation, Santonian (Kumamoto Japan) and I forgot until I decided to clean my drawers. It has a quite distinctive shape and make me think to a sea turtle bone, a paddle or an ulna maybe. What kind of bone do you think it is? Any ID? I am not looking for the ID, I just would like to know what kind of bone it is.
  21. Does anyone have a copy of the paper "Cetotheres from the early Middle Miocene Bihoku group inShobara District, Hiroshima prefecture, West Japan"? I know the paper is too big to upload, but I wanted sections of the paper that describe Hibacetus, Parietobalaena yamaokai, and Diorocetus shobarensis because no one has had the chance to place Hibacetus in a phylogenetic context.
  22. TFF friends, How are you? It's been a while i post here although i still read almost daily posts on the forum. Last month on the 30 and the 31th, i had the opportunity to make a 2 days field trip to the yamaguchi prefecture with the association of the Goshoura Cretaceous Museum's friends. We spend 2 days there discovering the local geology and history with paleontologists friends. Let me share with you this experience. First day. We left kumamoto at 7 in the morning and drove for about 3 hous to

    Active fossil hunters living in Japan

    Hi guys, how are you? Lately I saw, that new members from Japan joined us and I'd like to say that it is a rejoying news. Unfortunately, I also noticed that those members tend to disappear really quickly or to be shy (and or busy which is 100% understandable and logic if you work and live in Japan). As we are a very small community in Japan, I would like to make a kind of census to know who is still active, where do you live (your prefecture only is enough) and why not what you are collecting here in Japan. This kind of census would also be helpful to put in
