    Serravallian jaw and tooth.

    Hi, i found that piece of jaw in a Serravallian marine environnent in Mios, department Gironde, France, looking for shark teeth and that's obviously not one. The item is 5.5 cm at its longest part.
  2. Walked a sandbar today and found this fossilized tooth with part of jaw. Found on Kaw ( Kansas River ) sandbank Eastern Kansas. Jaw part is completely vitreous ( non absorbent/ non porous ) and tooth has begun to agatize. Not sure on I.D. … possibly Camelid?

    Bison in pa?

    Hello everyone! I am looking for help with a possible id on these bones I have found recently in the Pittsburgh area of Pa. They were all found in a creek bed with a lot of exposed rock after the amount of rain we got in the spring. All bones were found in a 20 foot square radius. Thank you for any help! I did a hot pin test, and it did not burn through at all..

    Jaw Piece

    Found this jaw piece with teeth in it. Found in southern Alberta from the Dinosaur Park formation. Looking at the end view you can see the teeth that were coming in next. Looking for an ID on the dinosaur this came from. I think hadrosaur but not fully confident in my ID.
  5. I found this small jaw on the kaw river and I can't seem to find an id on it. Thank you for your help beforehand!

    Fish? Jaw?

    I found this the other day in a Middle Cenomanian shell hash layer. It is about 30 mm long. It seems to be absent sharp teeth and instead has some type of crushing dentition. But, I'm not sure that it's even a jaw. It could be a fragmented fish fin or split spine. Does anyone have a good idea?

    Small Jaw with teeth, from Alberta

    Hi everyone! We had a successful first trip out to the Alberta badlands this year. We usually go to the Horseshoe Canyon formation, so this trip was our first time in the Dinosaur Park formation! The best find of the day is this tiny jaw my son found. It still has one tooth in it and the roots are still visible! We have a few ideas on what it could be, but we are not sure. Any ideas on what it could be from? Sorry if the picture quality is bad, the fossil is quite small. I will try and get better pictures of it and upload them as well.

    fossil jaw?

    I was trying to clean fossils with matrix around them that was from Aurora, North Carolina mix. A lot have been very dark black and hard to tell much after cleaning but one I thought maybe a small jaw piece. #1 #2 #3 #4

    Shark Jaw ID

    I’m not sure if this is considered a fossil or modern(I’m leaning towards modern) but I recently acquired this jaw and was wondering for a possible species ID, the original owner had no information. It’s roughly 8 inches long and 3 inches open

    Argentinian jaw or rock ?

    Hello, I saw this "Argentinian jaw" for sale today and wondered If its really a jaw or an interesting rock formation. Its exact finding location isnt stated, but its apparently from Argentina. Has anyone an Idea ?

    Ocodelius Virginianus (Deer) Mandible

    From the album: Vertebrates

    White tail deer mandible found on kaw river
  13. Hello everyone! Ive been offered this "jaw section" from what the seller said is a spinosaurus. Is this true? Or is it a spinosaurus tooth composited in random piece of bone? This jaw section was found in the kem-kem formation.
  14. KSBasque

    Fossilized jaw, no teeth.

    A little fossilized jaw section I found on Kansas River sandbar. Has tiny stones stuck in it that I don’t want to remove. Very delicate and light, but completely vitreous. Perhaps a fish fossil?
  15. I found this fragment of jaw from what I believe is a beaver yesterday at Big Brook in New Jersey. Could it be pleistocene or just iron stained modern bone?
  16. Hello, I saw this Carcharodontosaurus jaw on auction today and wondered If its real or fake. Carch jaws seem to be incredibly rare on the market, so I think that many of the ones you see are fake. But this one looks genuine to me. Can someone maybe identify, if its lower or upper jaw? It was found in the Kemkem beds, morocco. Thanks !
  17. Hello, I saw this Spinosaurus jaw for sale today and wondered If its real or fake. It appears to be glued or a bit reconstructed and not very well preserved, but also looks a bit off to me (texture, shape) One small tooth is still in place, and suprisingly, it looks more genuine. But lets hear what you think about it. It was found in the Kemkem beds, morocco.
  18. I found a Mosasaur jaw in a shop and wanted to know if it appeared legitimate. I have seen others that seem much more fake, but as they are one of the more commonly faked fossils , I thought it would be best to get a second opinion. Sadly I only have one photo.

    Mammal jaw

    Hi What animal is this piece of the lower jaw from? Maybe 100-200 years old? Best wishes Daniel Found:Babimost, Zachodnia, Polska
  20. Another hunt recently with more E KS ‘glacial’ material. Posting this on behalf of my hunting partner. My novice guess is equus, but I’m not sure. If it is equus, got any species ideas? Thank you so much, I really appreciate the help!

    Cave bear jaw

    Hello everyone! I want some advice. I have limited birthday money, and I was wondering whether this Cave Bear jaw is worth buying, or whether I should save up over two times more to get a slightly more complete one. It is quite a good price for its size. Or should I get what is being sold as a Globidens jaw (I am slightly sceptical) of which I only have one image. That jaw is a bit cheaper than the first cave bear jaw. I’ll get the Globidens jaw image from my dad. That is the first Cave Bear jaw
  22. Hello, I wanted to ask how rare are Plesiosaurus jaws on the market? I've seen hundreds of real, fake, and composite Mosasaurus jaws from Morocco, but now I've seen a nice, big and real Plesiosaurus jaw with two teeth and no evidence of plaster. How rare is it to find a good one on the market? Thanks !
  23. Hi all, Thanks so much for the kind feedback on my Berthasaura reconstruction. Here is another example of my work: A 'juvenile' tyrannosaur skull based loosely on Jane (BMRP 2002.4.1) I'm aware of the debates regarding age and species however I have just approached this as younger individual. Thanks so much for checking out my sculpt. I'm printing a prototype as we speak, I'll post some updates on here once its assembled!
  24. Hello everyone, I was wondering which parts of this rooted mosasaur tooth are real. There is a second tooth in it which looks like a replacement tooth and next to it there is also a shark tooth. Can you tell if the bones of the jaw are real? I thought the bigger tooth could be glued on the root, like it's often the case with mosasaur teeth from morocco. And why is there a shark tooth in the bone? Any insight is appreciated.
