    Madagascar Dinosaur Vertebra?

    Any idea if this bone is a dinosaur vertebra? It is from Madagascar but unfortunately no further information as to its exact locality/formation. The seller said the nerves are also preserved, is that so?

    Marine reptiles of Madagascar

    Hi all, I recently became aware that Madagascar appears to have a fully developed and interesting Mesozoic marine reptile record, yet am not particularly able to find any information on them. The only article I have come across is Bardet and Termier, 1990, "Première description de restes de Plésiosaure provenant de Madagascar (gisement de Berere, Campanien)". However, I've been unable to track this article down. As such, I was wondering whether anybody on TFF might have any information on them. Basically, I'm starting from scratch, so would be very interested in the clades of
  5. First of all, the list of fish found in Madagascar - there are more than 30 species! So many that I can't treat all of them (and I've never seen some of them). There is relatively old, but good literature on it - Lehman has written one of the most comprehensive publications on this subject: J.-P.Lehman (1952) Etude Complementaire des Poisson de L'Eotrias de Madagascar. Kungl. Svenska Vetenskapsakademiens Handlingar. Fjärde Serien Bd 2 No 6 (in French, 244 pages, 340MB!) Australosomus merlei Piveteau, 1934 is easy to recognize: Small

  7. Hello TFF, I purchased this relatively inexpensive specimen at Mineralfest this past fall, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me more about it. The seller informed me it could possibly be from Madagascar, but was transparent in admitting that she couldn't confirm for sure. It was with other pieces of petrified wood that were brown, but I was drawn to this one due to the red hues. I think it's agatized, and it looks "glassy," although there are too many impurities to shine a cell phone light through it. One side is polished, and I put water on the rougher backside to show mor

    Coelacanth

    Hi people. I found this fish in the Malagasy mountains in 2014. I think it's a Piveauia madagascariensis Lehman, 1952 ?? To get to the site we have to walk in the mountains for 4-5 hours, depending on the site we want to visit, for me it was a fabulous period, not only for the fossils, but also for the discovery of the way of life of the Malagasy, the all those that surrounds it. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2021 !!
  11. I saw this from an online store. It was said to be a toe bone of a dinosaur from Madagascar. It is pretty large, is it really a dinosaur toe bone?

    Small fossils in cleonaceras

    I bought this cleonaceras ammonite a while ago. It’s 110 Million years old from Madagascar. It said it was filled with mud and when I was looking at it I saw many small fossils, some of these may be unidentifiable or even not fossils but I know some are and want to see if you guys can help narrow it down. Since they have been polished the inclusions on one side are not on the other here’s the ammonite, 6.9 inches the longest way 1. Gastropod? 2. Shell fragment? 3. Shell fragment? 4. Gastropod? 5. Gast

    Crazy Beast From Madagascar

    Dr Krause does it again. Another mammal from the Cretaceous of Madagascar. Named the "crazy beast" in hybrid Malagasy and Greek. Also named after a colleague who passed away. Weird reading about people you've worked with and met. My wife did unrelated research with Dr. Hu too. Don't get fooled by the picture at the top of the page, it is from a gallery of extinct creatures https://www.cnn.com/2020/12/18/world/crazy-beast-fossil-mammal-scn-trnd/index.html

    New Late Cretaceous Bird

  16. Hello, I'm interested in getting one, maybe both of these. Sold as Borthriospondylus, but, unless I'm misaken, that's a name attached to fossils to sell them and a better labelling is Eusauropoda. Anyway, unfortunately, there is no formation, I emailed seller and he doesn't know. But both teeth are from Madagascar, 164 million years old. I was wondering, are they both from the same species? While they both look similar and have a similar shape around the base, tooth number 1 has a flatter top--does this mean they're from two different species, or does it just have more

    Madagascar Theropod Tooth?

    Hi all, I bought this tooth recently on an auction site and was wondering what you folks think. The seller bought it at Tucson Fossil show but lost the ID card with the Formation on it, so the locale is missing. Info on the tooth: 1 inch long Supposedly from Madagascar

    Circles on Sand Dollar

    I’ve had this mepygurus marmonti sand dollar from the Jurassic of Madagascar for years now and when I was looking at it I noticed these small circles on the bottom. Are these on every sand dollar, it appears to be a part of it so my guess was some sort of way for tiny legs to attach but it’s just a guess the sand dollar is 7.5 centimeters and each dot is just under 1 millimeter

    Madagascar Eusauropoda ?

    One of a couple of teeth I'm interested in--figure it's time to add some more exotic teeth to my collection. This caught my eye, Eusauropoda tooth from Madagascar. 0.56 inches, from the Isalo Formation, Majunga, Madagascar. If it's as described, that would be great. Thanks very much. Edit: meant to post in id. Not is it real

    Majungasaurus Tooth or Something Else?

    Hello, I have recently received photos of this tooth. It is labeled as a Majungasaurus crenatissimus tooth. The location is stated as Maevarano, Majunga, Madagascar. To me, it does show morphological characteristics of being an Abelisaurid tooth, such as a distal edge that is not recurved. What are your thoughts on this?
  23. A new paper is available online: Kammerer, Christian F.; Nesbitt, Sterling J.; Flynn, John J.; Ranivoharimanana, Lovasoa; Wyss, André R., 2020. A tiny ornithodiran archosaur from the Triassic of Madagascar and the role of miniaturization in dinosaur and pterosaur ancestry. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences doi:10.1073/pnas.1916631117. ISSN 0027-8424. Until now, the fossil record of Triassic diapsids from Madagascar was pretty poor, and after the putative 'prosauropod' from the Isalo II unit (later named Azendohsaurus madagaskarensis) was found to be a non-
  24. I’ve been slowly working on improving our Jurassic dinosaur fossil collection. One of the major goals has been expanding beyond North America and the Morrison Formation. We recently picked up two fossils that accomplish that goal. Up first we we have a pretty nice sauropod tooth from Madagascar. This is from what is usually referred to as the Isalo III Formation. I believe the Sakahara formation would be the more accurate name given this comes from Andronomamy. This tooth is kind of interesting. It matches the Eusauropoda morphology of a paper published on sauropod te
  25. Its always good to see new publications on dinosaur material from Madagascar since we often see it for sale and misidentified. Here we have a publication that looks at the osteology of Rahonavis ostromi, a paravian from the Maastrichtian Maevarano Formation, Mahajanga Basin, northwestern Madagascar. Unfortunately no functional teeth are described just unerupted ones but it gives us a great description of bones and claws. https://palaeo-electronica.org/content/2020/3060-osteology-of-rahonavis
