    Peace River Puzzle

    When I was back out on the Peace River Friday I was pulling up a lot of small shark teeth and miscellaneous pieces of bone. At pone point I looked into the sifter and spotted what looked like a piece of a giant armadillo scute. I was disappointed because it was a small piece, but clearly a scute. I had retrieved a couple of whole ones in the same spot on previous visits. Just as I was about to toss it back I spotted another small piece in the sifter. I decided to hang onto both and as I cleared the sifter I found three more pieces for a total of five. At that point I was not even sure the
  2. Every now and then something weird shows up in my sifter. Look at this cute little guy. Hexagonal shape with a faint raised area in the middle. Texture, shape, thickness all seem right for a giant armadillo, but the size is tiny. I've never seen one this small. Can someone confirm or deny this? Could this be from a baby/juvenile? Could it be a baby glyptodont. I'm stumped.

    Sauropod scute -- Kem Kem

    Hi, I saw this for sale and figured it'd be nice to display alongside my Kem Kem Sauropod teeth. But is it actually a dermal scute as described? I see a few others of these sold as sauropod scutes, but it just be a case of misidentification, so figured it best to check here. It is from Kem Kem. Sellers description says these are sold as scutes but that he hasn't seen any scientific papers describing them as such, so the ID could be wrong. Thanks

    Some kind of Scute?

    Can someone help me ID this please? Found in Alafia river
  5. Hey Everyone, Had a decent day out at NSR. Not as good as one person who found 18 verts, 2 arrow heads, and more. Found NSR, Delta County, TX I am thinking this might be a turtle scute but i am still earning. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Is this an Ankylosaurus scute?

    Looking for an ID on this scute. Found in the Dinosaur Park formation. Length is 3 inches.

    Weird piece of bone/ scute.

    Hello, I found this piece 2 weeks ago on the beach of Breskens in Zeeland. I don’t know what it is and there were not several options. I get stuck with this piece of bone. I hope that someone know what it is! The sizes are in cm.
  8. Fun trip to the North Sulphur River Texas. I really like the giant coprolite and Holmesina armadillo scute. @GeschWhat
  9. Beautiful weather forecast and Green Mill Run is low enough to hunt. Even knowing I rarely find much worth displaying, sometimes you just need a day in the field so I coerce cajole one of my housemates to take the morning and have a little adventure. Even with every intention to only use the screen with the larger size mesh, nevertheless within the first dozen shovels we are using the smaller mesh. I suppose if we are ever really serious about leaving behind the little fossils, we will have to leave behind the small mesh screen! But that is hard to do when we find such little gems as s
  10. This carnivore coprolite was found in the Bull Canyon Formation (Upper Triassic - Norian), Quay County, New Mexico. It contains numerous fine, boney inclusions (white). There also appears to be a small jaw inclusion that has a shape similar to amphibians. Originally, I couldn't figure out why there would be so many finely crushed bones. It is not something I usually see. When bone fragments are present, they are usually larger. That said, fibrous osteoderms are also found in the same area. I have included an image of a fairly large one. They are made up of fine, boney fibers that have a confi

    Turtle scute?

    I found this rock on Ocean Beach in San Francisco. I have In the same area over the past few weeks recovered several fragments of Sand Dollar fossils probably about two million years old, according to a local geology/oceanology professor who recognized them right away. I am wondering if this rock might be a turtle scute as I have seen similar looking samples online that were Holocene turtle scutes. The sand dollars were the first fossils I’ve ever found outside of fossilized clams so I have no problem if this is just a rock. Many thanks in advance for the expert guidance and help.

    McFaddin Beach: Turtle, bone? Or ?

    Hi everyone! We made a trip to McFaddin Beach a few months ago (mishmash of Pliestocene materials wash up), and found these two items, which _at first_ we thought were 1. A bone (left) and 2. a turtle scute (right), all photos. BUT - the item on the left, the bone, has kind of a nice finish, with small bubbles, on the inside (lower left photo). ?? And the item on the right, the scute, has a very interesting texture on the two flat faces. Could it still be turtle? Or could it be something else? Your input appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  14. Hello everyone ! Need a bit of help here . this 3 pieces shown below has been offered to me as Ankylosaur osteoderm from Judith River formation. I have a bad memory about Ankylosaur scute before so i want a bit of help in Identification of these 3 pieces before buying. thank you in Advance ! Guns ==Number 1== ==Number 2== ==Number 3==
  15. Found in the backyard, dug out at about 2 feet down, Cerritos Ca. They are cleaned in the photos, some sandy matrix could not be scrubbed or picked off. Looks like it was fibrous in the middle (see last 2 pics). All pieces have same design on top and bottom. Have also found a piece of bone, and seashells in this 3' long, 2' wide, 2' deep area.

    NSR Finds

    Hey y'all! This is my first ID post, so please tell me what I should do/change for future posts <3 These are all fossils I have found in the North Sulphur River in the last two months. I'm only asking about a few in the picture because I know there's a lot and I figured I'd only focus on a few at a time <3 sorry y'all, didn't plan ahead very well. I have more pictures of all of them though if needed. 1) One (bottom middle) is ID'd (via Dallas Paleo Group on FB) possibly as coprolite or a 'jumble'?- looking for clarification as well as what the things inside the fossil mig

    Cretaceous scute to identify

    Help needed ! I prepped part of this bone with the highest difficulties because of a thin crust of iron sticking to the fossil. It comes from continental cretaceous of South of France. Before going further I would like to identify it to assess if it is worth the trouble . I hesitate between a Nodosauridae scute and simply a... turtle scute. I took pictures of the top (under the thin remaining matrix it is all bone), sides and bottom (which is totally unprepped and may never be, just note it is flat)

    Some Kind Of Scute

    I came across this scute in Colorado, b ut I can't tell if it is turtle, croc or something else. It was thin and brittle and had to be glued. Just under 2 inches long. Any opinion is appreciated.

    Scutes unknown

    Found these on the beach in Jacksonville Florida so Pleistocene. They appear to be some kind of scute. Are they glyptodont edge scutes? Tortoise leg spurs maybe? The first one looks like two fused together. One in the second group doesn’t actually come to a point but is otherwise very similar.

    croc scutes

    pretty sure these are from a crocodile. does anyone have a 2nd opinion?
  22. So, I found a few chunks of osteoderms in an area that floods quite often. I wasn't even sure what they were at first, only that I *thought* they might be. But they were completely covered in mud and I was super-careful picking them up and getting them home. One separated from the large chunk. But now I have no idea what to do! I did leave them outside in the rain a few days; they were mostly uncovered when I found them anyway and have been sitting in sloppy mud for an eternity, so I figured it wouldn't hurt. So there was a lot of mud that came off but they're far from clean.
  23. Hello let me start of by say you all are awesome! Amateurs like myself have got a lot more confidence because of the help you give us. It was great day when I discovered this site I had bought these a ways back and I was going thru my collection and it would be great to get an opinion if I these are what they were described as. The "raptor claw" was the first ever fossil I bought! (Fingers crossed haha) The COA said it was from the Taquiz, kasar-es-souk, region in Morocco. I believe the seller told be the red lines we blood grooves? It was probably 10 years ago so I

    Costal vs. Scute vs. Osteoderm IDs

    Location: Brazos River, near Brookshire, TX Found: Gravel, sand, low water Estimated time: Pleistocene I've been searching through info on scutes, osteoderms, reptile fossils, and types of turtle shell and plastron parts because we seem to have a lot of those in our area, but I'm having a hard time telling the difference. These are my best guesses, and I'm hoping someone can educate me on the differences. FRAG 1--I think this is a large turtle/tortoise scute fragment, but I'm not sure how to tell the difference between neural, costal, central, etc.
