    Small Ungual

    Picked this small bone out of my Sieve a week ago. Rolled it around in my hand. Seemed unbroken, so I kept it. Seems unbroken on all edges; An outside layer over porous bone; Articulation facet on proximal end. Fauna which I find frequently at this location is Giant Armadillo, Glyptodont, Alligator. Less frequently is Bear, Sloth, Dolphin. I will check out those fauna and others tomorrow, unless eliminates the check for a fauna because they know the fauna does not match. Please comment on any additional fauna I should check. Thanks, Jack

    Pleistocene Toe Bones

    Hello everyone Below are pics of two pretty well preserved toe bones found on dredge spoil islands near Savannah, GA. These islands dredge up modern to Miocene era fossils. My guess is these are from two different medium sized Ice age land mammals. For the sake of description, the one on the left can be called the larger brown toe bone and the one on the right the smaller black toe bone. Thanks for looking. Hopefully there is something diagnostic in appearances to help with ID.

    few items for identification...

    found a few interesting things need identifying.... found in gravel from the Brazos river east of Houston Texas. First is a possible toe bone?, Bone fragment. second is a tooth. Possible Bison but I think it looks more equine??. could be wrong though. third is a possible small coprolite? passes the tacky test and when magnifies looking at a small chip in it there are orange and black colors inside can get pics if needed.

    Theropod phalanx toe bone?

    Just purchased this phalanx toe bone. It was sold as Spinosaurus, however I guess it's impossible to ID it like that. Just want confirmation it's indeed a theropod phalanx toe bone. Location: Taouz, South Morocco Size: 4cm (1.58")

    camelid proximal phalanges B

    From the album: BONES

    This is the third toe bone of a lamine (that is, related to llamas rather than dromedaries) camelid from the Plio-Pleistocene of Florida. Recovered from a Florida river.

    Giant Sloth Phalanx?

    Since the river has been going down, I've been wanting to go out for a long while to check the newly exposed gravel. Finally got a chance and felt up to it a little while before dark yesterday and found a few things. Sandy gravel matrix with Pleistocene and possible Miocene in southeast Texas. I'm thinking this is a medial phalanx from a giant Sloth. Can anyone confirm?

    Big brook toe bone?

    Just dug from Big Brook. Think it's definitely a bone...but is it modern or fossil?
  11. Hey y'all... First time posting... I found this in Peace River, Florida... Is this a toe bone or what??? If so, from what???

    Florida Toe/Finger Bone Fragment

    I found this worn bone on Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. It's approx. 1" x 1/2". It has some unique characteristics that will hopefully help with an ID. The top has a circular indent that you can fit the tip of my finger in. The 2 longer sides are flat and the other a little more curved. I posted 6 different angles. Any ideas on this one? Thanks! Lynn

    Proximal phalanx?

    I'm horrible with bones so could be way off on this. Came from creek that's mostly QAL, it does not burn or smell and can't scratch it. Closest I could find is deer but they all look so similar! It has a reddish color, is that from staining?

    Dinosaur claw confirmation

    I would be grateful if somebody could educate me on this fossil, I purchased a bag of misc fossil bones on online years ago and this was inside. It would be great to know more about it . I believe it came from Hell Creek. Looks really good condition to me. Toe claw ?.

    Hadrosaur Phalanx?

    I'm wondering what this is. My best (non-expert) guess is that it is a toe bone of some sort. It's about a couple inches (appx. 5cm) in length & equally wide. It resembles some smaller Hadrosaur phalanges I've come across, but that is just a guess. To the best of my knowledge, it hails from Hell Creek. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

    Unknown toe bone?

    Hey, this is a bone that that my grandfather got with a bunch of other fossils for me and my siblings awhile ago before he passed away, I didn’t get interested in fossils till last year and found the jar with the other fossils most of the stuff in the jar were from Florida, but this one doesn’t look like most Florida fossils so I’m guessing it wasn’t found there. To me, it almost looks like some fossils I’ve seen from England, based on the mineralization and it’s super hard, what are your guesses on what it is?

    Kem Kem beds: dinosaur toe bone?

    Hello all Some time ago I got this bone from the Moroccan Kem Kem beds (Cenomanian in age). It looks like it's deformed during fossilisation (or afterwards). It would be 10 cm long, about 3,5 cm wide and 3 cm high in it's original state. So is this in fact a dinosaur toe bone? If so what family could it be? Or am I completely mistaken and is this something entirely different.

    Iowa River Fossil finds

    Peace river toe bone and vert

    I have found some unique items from my last trip I would like to share. But first I would like to say that i'm sad to see how people are treating the rivers lately. I have noticed a large influx of hunters and thats fine but the people digging huge holes in the sides of the river walls and bringing teams out to excavate large portions of riverbed make me sad. Gainesville has already stopped shovel digging in the rivers. Peace river is next if people don't start respecting the rivers more. So anyway I found what I think is a toe bone on my last trip. It was in a very over hunted area but there were fossils left out everywhere. People are only hunting for megs and literally leaving the other goodies behind. This bone was actually just laying in the stream next to a large pile of rocks someone had dug. The second fossil I need help identifying is this vert that I found on top of another pile. However this pile was not man dug it was just a natural river deposit. Thank you in advance for your help.
  20. Hi, Saw this for sale and was just wondering if this looks like a theropod toe bone or if it could be narrowed down? it is labelled as from Suchomimus but it could instead be from a croc or another theropod if not Suchomimus. It is 10cm in length and comes from the Elhraz Formation in Gadoufaouna, Africa. Thanks.

    Unknown bones?

    Hi, I’ve got some more fossils I’d and would appreciate if anyone could ID them. TIA.

    Possible toe bone

    Hello again. This was found on a beach by Charleston. Pleistocene/Pliocene era. I was wondering if this was a toe bone? If it is I would only need one more part to have a full section of toe bones including a claw I found. Thanks, Wyatt
  23. Hello All! I am lucky in that I have two T Rex Toe bones to decide from. One is of an adult (5 inches and heavy) that may have pathology on it. Perhaps bitten and as such healed itself "gimpy" (top right). There is erosion through the bone and so the definition is much less. And it is possible that the loss of the section is to erosion but the collector believes there to be pathology. The other is a juvenile toe bone (3 1/2 inch). It is in great condition with good definition. Irrespective of the price, I am interested in you all helping me decide which one to choose. Thanks!
  24. I was originally going to ask about the id of this bone, but i figured it is much more important to ask about any possible restorations done that aren't in the description. This is a 24cm toe phalange from an undescribed Tyrannosaur (from the Ajuga Formation). The seller has stated that the bone was found in many pieces that were put back together (it is slightly compressed) and had some crack fills (and a tiny bit of stain), but nothing else. May i ask for opinions, my main concern is whether it could be a composite but i am mostly unaware of the type of preservation found in this formation. Thanks.

    Ground Sloth Toe Bone?

    So I found these fossil toe (possibly hand) bones at an antique store, they're allegedly the toe bones from a ground sloth, unfortunately there is no location for these specimens, while my instinct tells me they're from around the area; Florida, with no documentation I'm not sure. They were very lowly priced so even if they can't be ID'd I figured I might as well buy them, any ideas? Specimen 1 Specimen 2 (Note the blue mark was just an eraser shaving, my bad!)
