    Is this a vertebra?

    Hi there. Im new here and im from Greece. So once again two days ago i went for hiking in the mountain. Almost everytime i find sea urchin fossils there. (Never found anything else like a shell fossil) . However more than 4 years ago i also found a strange "rock" and luckily the last time i found an exactly same "rock" again. I really have no idea what this is. It seems like a vertebra - spondyl to me. I hope you guys can help me because im really really curious. I hope these pictures are good enough for you to find out

    From the album: Holzmaden

    A huge Ichtyosaurus vertebra from Holzmaden / Germany.
  6. Hi all, I recently received this coprolite from the Isle of Sheppey (London Clay), England. From what I have read, the fossils found in the area generally consist of fish, birds and other marine fossils. This coprolite has some strange textures that lead me to think it could possibly be a regurgitite rather than a coprolite. The bones don't look fishy to me, There is one vertebra visible and some other bones that may be recognizable to some of you out there. I'm also interested to see if any of you think it could be regurgitite. When I first looked at it under the microscope the texture of po
  7. Here is a very mineralized mosasaur vertebra that I found in Decature county Tennessee last weekend. Coon Creek formation. Not real common.

  10. Title says it all really. Am I right in thinking a plesiosaur vert is thicker? How can you tell if you can only see the top or bottom but not the thickness? Thanks John

    Fish vertebra

    From the album: Cretaceous finds in Western Australia

    Great little fish vertebra from the Cretaceous Molecap Greensand of Gingin, Western Australia.
  18. Any ideas what animal? Appears to be bone. Found on beach on Manasota Key FL. Measures 3" wide by a tad over 2.5 wide, about 1/2" thick. Appears to have part of edge broken off in one area but then worn rounded as other edges. Also note 2 marks (indentions) Could these be bite marks? Could this be from a vertebra? Learning so much on TFF and enjoying so much!

    Small dinosaur bone?

    Hi everyone, hope you can help with this ID problem. I bought a pile of fossils from the Kem Kem beds in Morocco. It included a lot of random stuff, but one particular fossil caught my eye. There was a little bone locked in a "ball" of rock. I couldn't really make out what it was, so I removed the rock and out came this (look at pictures). To me it looks like a vertebra... Could it be from a dinosaur?

    Unknown Theropod Vert

    Hey guys, I'm interested in this "unknown theropod vertebra" from Morocco, I'm guessing Kem Kem, and it looks like a lower tail specimen - but have no clue what species it's from. Any ideas? Thanks, Robbie
  21. I am an amateur who knows next to nothing about fossils and paleontology. I am attaching five photographs of a petrified bone which I understand, used to be part of some creatures backbone. I belong to the foothills of Himalayas known as the Shivalik hills which was home to various species of Megafauna during some time in the past. We have fossil park dedicated to these gaints . (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shivalik_Fossil_Park) This bone has been lying at my home since my great grandfather's time. The local name of such bones is 'nau gaje di haddi' which translates to 'Bone of the Nine M
  22. On a trip with Jeff (jcbshark) a few weeks back we were prospecting in a creek where I found a few interesting bones that I would be interested in seeing if more specific identifications can be assigned. The first is a vertebra with most of the processes still intact giving me the hope that it can be identified to species. The second appears to be a small phalanx which may or may not be distinctive enough to say anything more than if it is a phalanx or not. Since realizing that identifications are much more likely when photos are posted to the correct subforum (Fossil ID) rather than included
  23. A friend gave me this bone he found in north Texas at a locality where Pleistocene deposits overlay some Cretaceous age Woodbine deposits and bones from both ages are found there including hadrosaur, crocodile, and more recent mammoth bones. I was there when he found it so I can attest to the provenance. I've poured through my binders of paleo material and online images searches but haven't found anything that quite matches this partial vertebra. What do the experts here think it's from? My friend has a suggestion but I wanna see if ya'll come up with the same answer independently.
  24. I am trying to identify the some bony fish inclusions in coprolites from the Eagle Ford Formation in Texas. Can anyone out there identify fish by vertebrae and scales? I have not been able to find any teeth in them that would help with ID. The first two pictures are from a coil-shaped coprolite that has numerous bony inclusions. I'm assuming the vertebrae (40x) and bony thing that looks like coral (20x) are from the same fish. I forgot to take measurements of this one, but the photos were taken through a microscope. The fancy scale is in a different coprolite and measures about 4 mm x 1
  25. I don’t know where else to ask, I need your expertise. I've had a great opportunity come my way, but i'm out of my element and need help from like-minded fossil collectors. I've collected fossils in the rivers of Florida and in New York state. I love collecting vertebra and joint bones, and of course teeth, but never in the low country of South Carolina. I will be saying at Harry’s Fish Camp on Lake Marion from the 19th to the 27th with some friends. Were all kayak fishermen, but I love fossils, and they know this and are expecting me to take them on a trip or two. We will all have kayaks a
