    Out of place shaped rock/fossil?

    Hey all, I'll jump right into some details about this recent rock/fossil find. Backstory: Taking a quick break from driving and stopped along a shale riverbank (I'll include pics) to look at potential fishing spots and to flip some floating shale for signs of fossils. My subconscious picks out this rather rough "puck" shaped specimen and screams to me "Pick it up!" First thought, column vertebrae of some kind. The reason my eye caught this rock was it's round shape against all the sharp edges of shale that is was loosely lying in. Location: North Eastern BC, Tumbler Ridge, Wa
  2. hello ! I need help ID this vertebra from kem kem basin , morocco original owner label it as dinosaur/croc vertebra .but i wound like to know your opinion ID this vertebra ^^ many thanks

    Iowa River find 2 unsure

    This is one I’m not really sure about this vertebra, or this leg bone?... both are very heavy for their size!
  4. I found this on shark tooth island in Savannah Georgia any idea as to what mammal it could belong to?

    Is this part vertebra?

    Found this in central Louisiana along with what I would assume is the end of a rib bone? How can you tell if it was from a land animal or ocean dwellers of the time. Excuse my lack of knowledge in this area I am new to this hobby. The first picture has clearly a hole through it where I’m assuming was where either nerve/blood vessel ran through. Just not sure what part of bone it is or who it belonged to.

    Brazil Mystery Fossil -verts?

    Hello all. Any insight on this unidentified fossil, originally from Brazil (old collection). I'm presuming the Santana Formation, given that the matrix looks so similar to some insect specimens I've seen. It appears to be a string of small vertebra --- but beyond that, I have no clue what the heck I might be looking at. Please see images, which includes extreme close-ups. [P.S., this is the 1st of 5 specimens that I'm posting for ID today; I deeply appreciate any insight that you can provide]. With gratitude, Ryan
  7. Hi, Saw this fossil for sale and the seller believes it might be a partial vertebra from a Sauropod. It is from the Kem Kem in Morocco and I am not sure if there are enough diagnostic features to be sure, anyone have an idea as to what it might be?. It is 22cm in length. Thanks.

    Identification help

    I found this on the banks of the Trinity River in the DFW area of Texas. I spoke with an archaeologist online who guessed it to be bison or bovine of some kind. He guessed that it was considerably old because he could see mineralization in the photo I showed him. All I can tell is that it is a thoracic vertebra, approximately 3 1/2 in by 4 in in size. I cannot tell if it is fossilized or just a bone nor can I tell if the color is due to age or sediment discoloration. Would love to know what anyone thinks and if they could point me in the direction websites that might have answers. Thanks!

    Unknown vertebra from SC

    Hi all, took a trip to Hilton Head island, SC this year. No luck for shark teeth - but I did dredge this guy up. Doesn’t look like a shark vert. It’s around 1/2 inch long. Any ideas? My apologies for the poor pictures.

    Whale Vertebra ?

    I believe it is possibly a whale vertebra. It is light for it's size. Found inland Venice, FL in a dirt pile. Image 7414 shows flat surface of fossil. The remaining images are lateral views.
  11. It was initially being sold as plesiosaur when I inquired about it, but seller says it was mislabelled and is pliosaur--which, if accurate, even better! But I am dubious over Pliosaur ID because I don't think I've ever seen any Morocco pliosaur fossils up for sale. But, if anyone can take a look and let me if A) It looks legit and B ) Whether you think Pliosaur or plesiosaur is accurate, that would be great. 80 million years old, from Morocco. 17 inches along the straight edge and 10 inches along the bottom. Thanks for any help!

    Marine animal tooth?

    I just joined this group. I found this today in the surf of Holden Beach, NC. Just hoping someone can identify it for me
  13. My boys found this the other day. It does not look like a whale or porpoise vert, I don't think. Before posting a trip report, I was hoping someone could tell me what it is.

    Vertebra found on Daupine Island

    Greetings Guys ! This is a vertebra bone that I found on the beach at Daupine Island , Alabama. It appears to be a partial vertebrae, with the transverse process and inferior facet intact. As a Chiropractor, I know vertebra, but not much knowledge on comparative anatomy. Do any of ya'll have any thoughts as to what this belonged to? Thanks for your thoughts. Joe

    Mosasaur vert --Morocco

    I don't have a Mosasaur vert, so hope this is accurate. Possible Prognathodon. Is Mosasaur accurate, or a chunky plesiosaur or croc? Any help appreciated.
  16. Got out with my kids to Calvert Cliffs over the weekend for some attempted crabbing, general beachcombing and fossil collecting. Water was pretty clear without a lot of wave action, so patience was required to find anything decent in all the sand. We also had to keep our eyes out for the abundant sea nettles that have come in. Anyway, we had good success, with a couple of really nice snaggleteeth I pulled out of the wash about 10 minutes and 10 feet apart (two of a kind!). I had just been talking to a couple of collectors right in that spot lamenting poor hunting that day--so right time, ri

    Mystery Vert, Calvert Cliffs

    Hi all, I found this strange vertebra today in a small creek that flows into the Chesapeake Bay. If it's a fossil, it is from the Calvert Formation. It's unlike anything I've seen before, and certainly not a cetacean vert, so that begs the question: what is it? I have not done the burn test on it yet to confirm it as a fossil, but can anyone identify it based on morphology? I believe it to be from a large terrestrial animal, but I'd like an expert/experienced opinion. Thank you in advance!

    Kem Kem Pterosaur vertebra?

    I have my doubts--aren't verts with the sort of ball-shaped end like this usually crocodile? It's been sold as a vertebra from Sirrocopterex. 3.5 cm in length. I'm suspecting croc, I'd love to be proved wrong though--a pterosaur vert would be a nice piece. Thanks for the help.

    Fish vertebra

    Kem Kem Vertebra

    Hello, this is been sold as unidentified Kem Kem bone. I'm guessing crocodile? But anyone knows more specific or differrnt that would be great. It is 5cm long. Thanks

    Unknown vertebra

    Hi all. Found this vertebra the other day in Greens Mill Run (Eastern NC). I immediately thought this one looked different than any other vertebra I have found. I initially thought reptile, but cannot find a good match in any reference or from anything in my collection. I would appreciate your thoughts.
  23. Hi Friends, A few months ago I spent a few days’ time on the North Sulfur River and I’ve added some potential coprolites to my collection and wanted to share what I’ve found so that maybe it will help someone be able to identify similar finds there. I picked up anything that I thought looked fossilized and after a few trips I had quite a bit to go through and attempt to identify. Subsequent trips I picked up less and less because I knew what to look for. #1, 2, and 3 are all from the North Sulfur River – Ozan formation. #1 was found in the redzone, while #2 and #3 were

    Plesiosaur?

    Hi all! What do you think of this vertebra? It was found long ago, comes probably from marine Kimmeridgian-Tithonian outcrops in the Volga basin, Russia. Doesn't look exactly like plesiosaur, but what else?

    Flat elongated Kem Kem bone ID

    I've got this long flat bone from the Kem Kem with a wide base, it was presumably attached to a larger bone. It also seems like it's missing the tip. I thought it might be a small spinosaurid neural spine but it has a weird lump of bone on one side so it seems like it is something else. Is this lump a muscle scar? Or a healed wound? And could this bone be an odd spinosaurid neural spine or is it something entirely else?
