    Just a rock or more??

    Wondering what your thoughts are about the holes and marks/ fossils maybe in this rock. Is there a fossil present? Thanks for your help!
  2. Hi there, I bought a hadrosaur caudal vertebra online a while ago and I was wondering what genus/species it is? It is from Southeastern Utah - I'm not sure which formation, the seller didn't say. Just joined up and would appreciate any help or suggestions! Thank you!
  3. Greetings Fossil Forum! I'm quite new to this and I've come across the following items. We found this items while cleaning out the house my great-aunt who recently passed. She was a great collector of a variety of things but we are not sure what to make of these. The tail-like object I've never seen anything like that before and it's stumped myself and my father and I have no idea what type of skull this might be. I'd really appreciate any help in the matter. Thanks much! - Chris

    What is this?

    Hello all, My daughter found this today on a local beach, we were wondering if anybody could shed some light on what it might be please?
  6. Recently in the news there has been a lot of discussion about a feathered non-avialan theropod /coelurosaur tail that was found intact, kept preserved for 99 million years in amber. Here is the study published about it: http://www.cell.com/current-biology/pdf/S0960-9822(16)31193-9.pdf and a Nat Geo article http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2016/12/feathered-dinosaur-tail-amber-theropod-myanmar-burma-cretaceous/ On an awesome-ness scale of 1 to Sue, where do you place a fossil find like this?

    First Phyllocarid

    I spent the day Friday hunting for Eurypterids. I was pleasantly surprised when I found what I believe to be the tail and last segment of a phyllocarid. Definately looks like the picture in my book "Fossil Ecosystems of North America" This was found in Bertie Dolestone of the Williamsville formation. This is late Silurian in age. Based on the commonest phylocarid in this formation being ceratiocaris acuminata, I suspect that is what I have here. The tail spike appears to be adjsacent to the last segment which is outlined with a black fine sharpie. The tail section itself is 67 millimeters in
