  1. Back on the Peace River yesterday. Another cool start to the day, 63* F when I launched at 8:00am. Headed back to where I found the camel cuboid last week and found there was still plenty of gravel to sift through. The morning progressed with a couple of nice, if partial, alligator teeth, many small shark teeth (nearly 200 by the end of day) a partial deer tooth and a couple of turtle leg spurs (5 for the day). The afternoon produced a couple of unidentified bones I will have to research and a very nice Llama astragalus - Hemiauchenia macrocephalus. Makes sense after finding the cuboid la
  2. Got back out to the Peace River yesterday, returning to the spot that gave me a nice bison tooth on my previous visit. It was 67* F on arrival and breezy. A bit unusual for Florida at this time of year! The water was warmer than the air temp. It was also a little deeper, more cloudy and running a little faster due to rain the previous night. I paddled up stream, portaged over a small area of rapids and was digging by 8:30am. Started off in the last dig spot but was turning up nothing but small shark teeth. It was enough to keep me encouraged but not enough to keep me from feeling the c
  3. During one of my hikes exploring the badlands in Central Alberta Canada (Scollard formation) near the Red Deer river I found this strange flat & thin piece of what appears to be fossilized bone. As you can see from the pictures it fans outward and it's quite thin, to me it almost looks similar to a aquatic flipper although I obviously am not sure at all what this could be. My instinct wants to say turtle piece possibly? Any help to ID this cool fossil would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
  4. 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.

    Bones in TX

    Found some bones sticking out of the creek bank in Central TX. Area has confirmed Mastodon remains. Tusks and a tooth all found within 1/4 mile of this site. Bones are 12 feet below the top of the bank. I did a little digging around today to get a feel for what it could be. It appears it could be a large pelvis bone (4-5 feet wide). I also found a small bone that appears to be from the foot/toes etc. Not really sure how I should proceed. Is there any educational value in this type of bones? Who would one contact to ask? I am sure Mastodon bones are fairly common.
  7. Ok here is another I am not sure of ...I am thinking it needs to go into my "looks like but not pile".... I was told it could be a very small turtle but I am skeptical so I brought it here for a look and suggestions .... I am thinking it may be just a very suggestive pebble. west of Houston Texas Brazos River Gravel bed.

    Turtle coprolite?

    This is from mix of Eagle Ford and Alluvium, had it for awhile but just ran across pictures of turtle coprolite and thought it fit, right size, shape and colors I've seen. Also weighs light. Knowing my luck it's geological but that's ok it's very interesting. I snuck in another one I suspect is coprolite

    Is this a turtle?

    I have no idea what I am looking at. Three years ago we moved to a house in the middle of no where with a creek in the property. We have found many many fossils and cool things that I can usually use google to identify. We stumbled upon this and it looks and is shaped just like a turtle. Is this a fossilized turtle?

    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.

    Ramanessin Bone Fragment?

    Out hunting on the Ram, came across this odd piece, my mind immediately jumped to a bone fragment of a large aquatic reptile, the holes in it are like nothing I've ever seen, and it feels lighter than a rock of similar size. So, I'm hopeful, any ideas or help would be awesome! Thanks guys!
  12. Hi guys hope everyone’s having a great Easter, if you celebrate it. A few days ago I got to go fossil hunting for the first time in monthswhile it wasn’t the most productive as the beds were covered by sand and not much erosion had taken place but I found enough in some micro matrix I bought home to warrant a trip report The geology of bracklesham bay To the left, the yellow is wittering fm. Some fossils can be found here but not many. The best area to hunt is the green earnley fm. Which produces the most abundant fossils, here is a photo of it when exposed

    Fossil?

    Hi there. I posted this a while back thinking it was maybe a turtle egg or something of that sort as it was more globular, but flat on the bottom. As it was thought to be a rock, I have had it in my tumbler, and while it hasn't changed much, it's definitely taken on a more distinct look. I have adjusted the lights and darks in the picture to make it easier to see. Any information would be fantastic.

    Turtle? Bone? Shell?

    Also got these in a lot from Florida. Are either of these part of a turtle?
  15. I noticed the fossils of more 'modern' reptiles are not commonly shown/displayed (partly because I think they are fairly common in the U.S. and not viewed as too spectacular), so I thought we might do so here. I'd love to see your croc/alligator and turtle material, especially from various locations!

    Texas Marine Turtle III

    Unearthed in North San Antonio Texas. These are a few pictures of the larger turtle "head". I'll post a picture of where I found it and the surrounding area and "rocks"

    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.

    Texas Marine Turtle II

    Uncovered in North San Antonio Texas in an area I believe to have been under water that had an abundance of marine life. This is an assumed "head" I unearthed. This is a picture of the left and right side. I previously posted some assumed "flippers". I want to know what you guys think. Thanks for your time.

    Weird vertebrae

    I found these two vertebrae together in the Dinosaur Park Formation of Alberta. I’m wondering what they might be? I’m suspecting rather Champsosaur, turtle, or juvenile theropod. Any insight into the identity of these two elements would be great, thanks! @Troodon
  20. This is a turtle shell fragment I collected today from Galveston Bay dredge spoils. (Late Pleistocene Beaumont formation) Is this a partially healed bite mark or some sort of pathology?
  21. I had a great half day at the North Sulphur River Texas before the rain got me. I found a mix of everything to include artifacts, Xiphactinus vert, swordfish tooth, coprolite, turtle shell, partially rooted mosasaur tooth, killer mosasaur paddle bone, Enchodus jaws, shark teeth and old toys. My buddy racked up on mosasaur verts.

    Turtle or?

    Heyy , I have these two bones from which I do not recognize the bone structure. Normally fish is layered, turtle to? The big one could me crocodile? I am lost on these bones. I thought the long one could be a piece of rib. But please help me! lxbxh Measurements rib?: 140x43x22mm Measurements ID?: 95x75x53mm Merci
  24. Everyone said NSR was dry and picked over but I hiked 9 hrs and found some cool stuff. My favorites are the Protostega costal bone with partial rib head preserved, the mosasaur bone with bite mark and the artifacts. I walked in tracks all day but the river is too large for someone to get everything and people miss quite a bit.

    Possible Egg

    Found in a wash of an Upper Cretaceous formation in the Four Corners area of the United States. I guess it is some sort of fossilized egg but would like a second opinion. In the formation, fossils from former terrestrial, aquatic and arboreal life is routinely found. The specimen is 6.3 cm long, and due to some compression at the time of fossilization is sort of shaped like a Brazil nut around its middle.
