    hollow ribs? pterosaur?

    Hi there, I’d like to get the expert opinion of you all. Could these be pterosaur ribs? i just know they’re from Whitney, Yorkshire. As you can see, they’re hollow, and all I know of, that would have little hollow ribs like that are pterosaurs, and avian dinosaurs, but I'd imagine it was very uncommon for articulated ribs from a raptor to make it to, and “survive” an aquatic deposit, intact and untouched, although I know pterosaur bones are sometimes found in aquatic fossil deposits, at least from coastal areas. I'm not sure what else would be found there with hollow ribs, and these also seem

    Finds on the KAW

    I've started my journey into finding places to hunt along the KAW. With advice from people here and some research on my own, this week I've done some "test pits" where I'd take an hour or less before work testing out via walking around a site and see what I can find, to see if it's worth returning to. And so far I've had great success. I've found multiple pieces of bone, teeth, shell and marine animals (Fusulinids, crinoids, bryozoans, etc). I made a longer visit to the best site I've found yet and recovered more pieces. It's all been just surface searching, with only minor digging in for part

    Mesosaur?

    Found this, it's from the early permian ecca group. I have found mesosaur as well as pygocephalomorph crustaceans where the specimen in question was found. I first thought it might be a juvenile mesosaur, but the ribs look to thin for mesosaur. Can anyone confirm juvenile mesosaur or is this something else? I can't find any information on any other vertebrate fauna from the area and fish are rare. This specimen does look a little fishy though.

    Strange Grab Bag of Bones

    So over the past couple of posts, i have focused on the individual bones that I have found in the overburden dig site at my plant. One spot in particular has continuously been a gold mine, and have lovingly called my Proboscidean site, after the Proboscidean scapula fragments I first found there. Over the course of 14 months (4 to 6 hours per month) I have dug up more and more fragments of different bones that eventually piece together, but now i have started to find bones of other animals. With all this I have started to wonder if there is some bigger picture I am missing trying to ID each bo
  5. Hello, I'm a newbie. I'm looking for advice on what product to place on the fossils in the boulder below. I want to stabilize them in the matrix before I do any more removal. The photo with the (5) had a great rib in it but crumbled upon getting the rock into my truck. Fossils are exposed on many sides. As I began removing matrix with my Dremel 290, more fossils were uncovered. I read many articles and posts about solution adhesives. I want to keep it simple. I found premade Paraloid B-72 Glue, and the more complicated acetone and b-72, b-76 pellets. I may try and use a fill

    What am I??

    Hi can someone explain to me just what this is or what it might be? It looks to me to be a fossil of some sort. Thanks for your help
  7. My son and I were taking advantage of the north westerly winds blowing the water out of the Neuse River and exposing more shoreline. My 7 year old found the lighter colored tooth and I found the darker (black) teeth all within 18” of each other along with the other fossilized bones. May 8th, 2020. I just signed up for this forum and would like to send more photos of the other bones.
  8. My husband and I took advantage of the extra low tides and headed to McFaddin beach to do some looking. We found the usual amount of quality seaglass, and nice sea shells but we also found some bones and teeth. I think most of the teeth are bison but a couple are pretty worn and hard to tell. One tooth is a monster! We are mostly curious to see if anyone can tell what the large bone might have belonged too.

    Probably Plesiosaur bones

    From the album: Holzmaden

    This seems to be a kinda rare find because maybe these are plesiosaur bones. Plesiosaur is the rarest marine reptile in the area of Holzmaden so I am pretty happy with this find On the plate are two ribs, a phalange and an interclavicle. But I am far away from being with the ID although I already showed it too some local experts. Its from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic, Posidonia Shale). Unprepped: Some more pictures of the prepped specimen:
  11. Found these fossils at a construction site in Venice Florida. Can I get some help identifying? It would be much appreciated. As a side note I found the huge Megalodon there as well. I think one is an alligator scale? One is a joint of some sort? And one is the tail bone of a dugong? And one is a jawbone with teeth ( feline )? What say all? thanks in advance

    Mini Mosasaur collection

    From the album: Marine reptiles and mammals

    A little collection of assorted mosasaur fossils from 2 different places that I got when I first started collecting. 2 different types of vertebrae, one is mosasaur, and the other is a questionable claim of mosasaur, a corprolite that was claimed to be that of a mosasaur, a tooth, & 7 rib fragments. 2 ribs have predation marks, as well as the large vertebra. The large vert has a round tooth indent on the very center. The 2nd rib down has tooth scratches along the surfaces, & 3rd rib down has a round tooth indent in the center, which is probably what caused a strip across the middle to

    Ichthyosaur stomach contents

    From the album: Marine reptiles and mammals

    Cross sections of the stomach, full of squid/cephalopod hooks and beaks, of an early Jurassic ichthyosaur (Stenopterygius quadriscissus). One slice has the animals ribs, the lighter tan objects, around the stomach, while the other is entirely of the stomach contents.

    Ichthyosaur skull bones

    From the album: Holzmaden

    This fossil was found by me two years ago in the visitor quarry Kromer near Holzmaden and was prepped by Roger Furze ( @Ludwigia ). Thanks again On the piece you can see a disarticulated Ichthyosaur skull with some ribs and vertebrae. You can see one eyehole very good, although the eye itself isnt preserved. Isolated bones are not that rare in Holzmaden but such pieces are very rare ! At the maximum the piece is about 24 cm long. Unprepped: Prepped: The eyehole is very good visible: (Probably my favourite part )
  15. Please could someone advise me on the permission required to remove a fossil. At low tide on the North Yorkshire coast near Port Mulgrave I discovered 5 visible ribs and some verts exposed under seaweed. The fossil appears to be limited to this with no paddles or jaw etc but it is still my best find. The area to be removed is approximately 60cm by 50cm. It is located about 10 meters off shore and will be exposed again next week. I removed a rib in three parts and would be able to remove the whole plate with tools. Can anyone tell me whether I need permission to do this and if it would be ok t
  16. Found this ages ago just lying alongside the road in Illinois... I think it was Illinois... heh... structure looks similar to a calamites horsetail IMO, but the symmetrical succession of the parts is curious. Any ideas?

    Cretaceous unknown

    This is a Late Cretaceous limestone from Poland. It contains a greenish glauconitic blob, on which - in one place - ornamentation is visible in a form of ribs, apparently meeting distally in pairs to form a V shape. First thoughts: poorly preserved inoceramid or ammonoid, Rhizocorallium-type burrow... Or... is it something more interesting??? Ideas!
  18. I got interested in this a few months ago when i found the teeth/jaw on the river Danube Im from Europe which as far as i know was in water back then ? Hope you can give me info on what are the bones/ribs/jaw from and approximately age

    My Display Overview

    Hello there paleontologists, fossil enthusiast, and everything in between. If you couldn't tell this is the first content I've ever made on the fossil forum so please excuse errors and, or inexperience I apologize in advance. Here is my collection of display fossils as well as modern bones keep in mind this is purely what I have on display I keep the vast majority of fossils I posses in storage with lots of support such as bubble rap and various other materials to ensure complete security of precious peeks into our planet's history. If you have any questions

    Dugong rib predation marks?

    I noticed that fossil dugong rib bones from Florida often have boring worm holes in them, though these are not predators per se, and have heard that shark marks can be found. Any other kinds of marks I should look out for? How common is it to find shark bite marks on the ribs?

    Comanche Peak Rings

    .are they burrows or something else? Maybe coral? Found in Walnut Clay formation of Comanche Peak, Hood County, TX...about 1.5 inches long Found this in matrix and need help identifying.....found in Walnut Clay formation of Comanche Peak in Hood County....rings are approximately 3/8 of an inch long and are not connected. Lots of gastropods, urchins, and ammonites in the immediate area. At first I thought this was a gastropod, but the "ribs" are not connected at all. Thanks in advance for your help.
