  1. I have been reading up on Moroccan mosasaurs and one point of confusion that I have run into is differentiating teeth from Prognathodon anceps and Prognathodon giganteus. There seems to be a great deal of overlap in their descriptions and occasional contradictions in the scientific literature. The first issue I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a great deal of confusion over what to even call the two species. Leiodon anceps (Owen, 1841-1845) was based on two tooth fragments and a section of jawbone. The genus was renamed Liodon by Agassiz (1846) because the

    Snake Vertebrae Column id

    Hello, I bought this snake vertebrae column from a conference building hosting a fossil and mineral show. This fossil didn't have a nametag telling the species and genus of the snake (most fossils at the show had a nametag). I forget where they said the snake verts were from (or if they said the location at all). I think they might have said Morocco. It's hard to scale because it's in a frame behind glass, but all the vertebrae are around 1 inch. I know it might be hard to identify without the head, so I may just be looking like an idiot expecting it's species to be identified. But if som

    Another NJ Tooth!

    Hello once again! Here’s a find I’m particularly excited about, a new tooth! I found it while perusing gravel banks at Ramenessin. It’s tiny! 1 cm at the most. It does have striations, though they were difficult to capture with my camera. It’s also split in half. One carinae as well. I’m hoping this is of the marine reptile variety, guessing croc due to the size. I dabbled with the idea of pachyrhizodus as well, although I think the striations rule that out? Any insight is much appreciated, eager to ID this one!
  4. Just found this earlier today. Thought it was an enchodus until I noticed the conic root. I assume it's some type of aquatic reptile given the location and the similarity to mosasaur teeth I've found, but much more narrow than any mosasaur teeth I've found.
  5. I found both of these a couple days ago on my last trip to Big Brook in the same pan, and both have a very similar texture and appearance that leads me to believe they could have belonged to the same animal. I shared both via PM with @Trevor, who suggested the vertebra was likely Mosasaur (but that it might have a diagnostic ID), and that the bone was some type of marine reptile. Just thought I'd re-post here in case others might have any thoughts to add to that. Also, if either is worth taking in for a more diagnostic identification, where/to whom should I take them? I have heard there is a m

    Is this a faecal fossil?

    Is this a faecal fossil? From Madagascar. It has a strange structure on it. Is that a bug mark?

    Are these tracks??

    My husband purchased this landscaping rock in a pallet from a Bath/Bethlehem, PA area supplier about 20 years ago. Most of the supplier’s stones are from Pennsylvania. I’m guessing this is sandstone??? I’ve been staring at this rock for sometime and before I place it back, I wanted to get some opinions if anyone sees any type of tracks on this rock? I feel like my fingers fit in the specimen very nicely. Can’t tell if I’m seeing 3, 4 or 5 “toes” ? Maybe I’m just an imaginative newbie. Thanking anyone in advance who looks at these photos.
  9. Found this today at calvert cliffs. The only things I could think of that it could be were a juvenile porpoise or crocodile tooth. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Fossils? Virginia. Help please

    I found this while digging in my garden. Could someone help me and let me know if they can identify it. It looks like a three toed something possibly. This was the only green colored “rock” around. What do you think??

    Reptile Skin Fossil?

    What is this fossil? It is a hard rock found in the bottom of a creek that happens to be very low around the Bismarck, North Dakota area. It looks like some sort of reptile skin. The size is about 1 1/2" x 3/4".

    Old collection fossil id

    I am unable to identify these pieces from my grandad's collection. He is now unable to clearly see and so sadly couldn't identify it. It must be something, he was a zoologist and the shale meant enough to have a crack repaired. Parts look like bones to me. I'd love to get these identified so I can prep them, making them clearer so he can see them clearer again.
  13. Hey all, Was looking through some older finds today (from Big Brook NJand was curious on if anyone could shed some light on these. The one tooth I originally thought to be of enchodus, but upon looking closer I am not 100% sold. I could see it being an enchodus worn down or something new entirely. In regards to the second, my thoughts originally were potentially bone fragment from potentially sea turtle? Any input helps!

    Permian tracks from NM

    I found some more Permian tracks in New Mexico and I think they’re probably related to a Temnospondyl amphibian. I have the first track I found from this place here, but I also found one with 4 tracks in the rock that I’m fairly certain are some of the best I’ve found in a while. : Here are those tracks. Now something cool I noticed on this one is there is a track I circled here: because it pokes out on the other side, like this right here: I’ll also give you guys a close up of the ot

    Parasaniwa Tooth

    Happy New Year everyone. Tonight I thought I might post a fossil whose identity I wanted to confirm. I found it in Wyoming's Lance formation this summer and someone told me it might be a Pachycephalosaur premaxillary tooth because of it's carinae and ridges at the base. However after comparing my tooth to examples I could find online I felt that this ID was incorrect. Eventually I looked back over one of @Troodon's threads and found a jaw labelled as parasaniwa and those teeth matched what I had found. My tooth is about 6 mm long and about 3 mm wide.

    New Crocodile

    An eight-million-year-old crocodile skull discovered in central Australia is now believed to be part of an extinct species new to scientists. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-57139281
  17. Hi, I found this reptile vertebra awhile ago at Yaverland on the isle of Wight, any idea what kind of reptile it is from?
  18. I've amassed a decent collection of rocks, minerals, crystals, and petrified wood, and even a few fossils in my 57 years in Northern California. Some I've found, others acquired at garage and estate sales and the local flea market. At one garage sale there was a milk crate full of various stones, geodes, cut agate, and such. They all looked good at a glance so I bought the whole crate. At home I went through it and every piece was a really nice specimen. At the bottom of the crate was a small rock. It wasn't anything obvious like the rest, so I looked at it under a light turning it all

    Cave Snake

    I just thought I would share a few pictures of this amazing snake I was able to acquire from a good friend who is letting go of a few pieces of his collection. He is getting up in age and I was honored enough to be the recipient of a few incredible pieces. This snake was found in 1988 in a cave on private property in Oregon. It is Pleistocene in age and is believed to be a species of racer (colubridae). Enjoy Seth
  20. Hi everyone, found this in a new jersey cretaceous creek. Looks like a partial enamel something but I'm not exactly sure what it can possibly be from, it interestingly has some very defined ridges on the least worn side. Very hard to catch the clearest pics to show the sharpest definition but I tried to get the best I could. Maybe this can be a clue to a potential id. Pictures of it with whiteish background are upside down.

    Unknown Jurassic Bone

    Hello all, I found this bone fragment many years ago. I'm afraid this will (as usual in this area) be a difficult one. This was found in the Boulonnais area in the North of France. Jurassic, marine sediments. This was a coastal area in the late Jurassic, so also rare dinosaur bones can be found. I included an in situ picture. Hidden in the rock was an ichtyosaurus vertebra. I therefore assumed this to be a piece of ichtyosaurus bone. However, I can not think of a bone in the Ichtyosaurus skeleton that fits. The bone has a kind of socket which, I guess, wa

    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

    Texas Marine Turtle

    Uncovered in North San Antonio Texas in an area I believe to have been under water at some point and had an abundance of marine life. These appear to be back flippers of different shapes and sizes. The largest one being 14.5 inches. This suggests a rather large creature. I'm thinking marine turtles. . I will post the " flippers" first. I will post what I believe to be the heads of these turtles next. The largest having a circumference of 27 inches.

    Strange Vert

    Hunting yesterday yields small shark teeth, lots of dermal denticles, a Meg, possible whale bones and this vertebrae. Likely modern due to fragility, pristine nature of very light bone. I thought lizard (iguana, monitor), maybe snake (Boa)... We have some strange pet store imports these days. Hopefully someone has seen something similar. I have not... It is L 32 x W 31 x H 20 mm All suggestions appreciated. Jack
