  1. Hi, I am interested in this. Sold here, seller says its ok to have a second pair of eyes look it over. From Holzmaden. Slab is 50cm. Jaw is 14cm. Seller thinks jaw has been added. My main concern is have the vertebra been added too? Thanks

    Whitby area Vertebra

    Braved the cold today to have a long walk around Runswick Bay and beyond. Best find was this vertebra, found in a slab of ammonites. Needs a little more prep to get the shale off. Any idea if it’s Ichthyosaur or something else?

    Hell Creek vertebra

    Hello! I got this dinosaur vertebra from Hell Creek (Montana) a few years back. It was sold to me as a Triceratops vertebra but I don't know how that ID was made. It's not in the best condition (has moss(?) on it and has been broken and then glued back together) but it is about 13-14 centimetres across so it is clearly from a big dinosaur, but there were plenty of those in Hell Creek (even two large ceratopsids - Triceratops and Torosaurus). Looking for any insight into how an ID could be made here and if Triceratops (or even just ceratopsid) is correct

    Mystery Vertebrae

    I found these two vertebrae nearby each other in the Dinosaur Park Formation. I originally thought it might be Champsosaur, but after closer examination I ruled that out. I then thought salamander, but the neural canal on mine is too small. Finally, I thought it might be a lizard (like Paleosaniwa), but the vert itself is more slender then a lizard vert. So, I’m out of ideas. I’m wondering if it may be from a juvenile theropod, but I really can’t tell. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! *should note on the vert with the majority of the process preserved that the ar

    A mystery vertebra

    Massive longshot with this one because I literally have no info other than it being a dinosaur vert. The seller bought a bunch of antiques and collectables and this was included listed as just "dinosaur vertebra". Some of the other fossils he has listed are clearly Moroccan--Mosasaur, Onchopristis etc, but this one definitely doesn't look Moroccan to me. SO, getting an ID is a massive longshot, but perhaps someone can recognize it and narrow it down a bit. I messaged seller for more info, but ... that's it unfortunately.

    Florida vertebra find help

    My daughter found this vertebra on the beach today while we were looking for shark teeth (at Mikler Beach, just north of St Augustine). Any ideas on a more specific attribution? Thanks!

    Vertebra, Shark, fish, or gator?

    Went hunting yesterday. Gorgeous day. Fast currents, deep water that is forecast to get deeper and faster by Monday. Mostly small , broken shark teeth, but there were 4 that were fun to find. A partial Sloth tooth, heavily worn at the chewing surface. I am thinking Harlan's. I found it in the 2nd sieve , which kept me at that location for the next 6 hours. Note the heavy wear on the left side of the chewing surface. A couple of hours later, I just noted a nice Equus canine on the edge of the screen and grabbed it before it slid back into the depths.

    Fish vertebra for ID

    Brazos River Vertebra ID?

    Location: Brazos Riverbed, near Brookshire, Texas Estimated Age: Pleistocene Matrix: Sand, low water, gravel I found this vertebra in the riverbed yesterday and could use help identifying it, if possible. I found this link, which made me think it was possibly a turtle vertebra, since it looks like the front is convex and the back is concave. It's a pretty large vertebra, so my turtle guess may be completely off, unless this is another hesperotestudo piece. Thanks for any help or suggestions!
  11. Howdy! Took a quick trip up to Dallas last week (kitten transport to two lucky families!) and I got a little fossil hunting in as well. The creek was Woodbine Form. Found this partial vertebra and was thinking it was mosasaur (FINALLY FOUND ONE! even if it is pretty banged up) but a friend says maybe not? Any thoughts? And also found this lovely little shark vert. Any way of telling what kind? (I think it's a shark vert, anyways. I might be wrong...lemme know!) Measurement in Inches

    Can you identify this vertebra?

    Hello all. I found this vertebra on the beach in Jersey City on New York Bay. Unfortunately I highly doubt it’s fossil. 2.5 inches tall by 2 inches wide. Obviously not fish. I am hoping it’s a marine mammal but suspect it might be dog. Thank you

    Carolina Coast Vertebra

    Hey there! New user, and probably not likely to stick around for long if I'm honest. I've just never had much of an affinity for forums, I'm afraid. That said, I have been absorbed by this particular specimen for several decades. The only suggestion I've heard so far is some kind of whale, but I was curious if I could narrow it down a bit more. Also, I'm not an expert, but it seems pretty different from most whale vertebrae I've looked up. That said, there are a lot of bones in a lot of kinds of whales out there, so I could easily, easily be wrong in my skepticism. This
  14. Hello everyone, I just bought a caudal vertebra of a diplodocus. It is from Wyoming and quite impressive in terms of size. I have no idea if such pieces could be faked... thanks a lot for your feedbacks
  15. I was out yesterday doing a final hunt before the snow sets in here in Montana on the Judith River formation and found this claw along with this vertebra, no other bones around so possibly from the same animal. I have found theropod claws that are much smaller and this one is huge when compared. I searched for the tip but sadly couldn't find it. I assume because of the size it would be a tyrannosauroid but not certain. Can it be determined to be a toe claw or hand claw? Is the vertebra identifiable? @patrickhudson
  16. Hi! I have a couple of bones that I would love some help with. The first appears to be a metacarpal perhaps (?), about 2.5" long - of unknown origin. I received it in two pieces, with a bit of the surrounding matrix still intact. The matrix is rust-colored & grainy, almost similar to what you might find on a Spino tooth; although the fossil itself isn't colored like any spino specimen I've encountered, plus its a pretty small bone. Any thoughts on what it might be? Secondly, is a vertibra, perhaps caudal (?). Very small, roughly an inch squared. My assumption is that it is mamm

    Kem Kem Vertebrae ID Thread

    So, lets figure out vertebrae from the Kem Kem beds. As many of you know the Kem Kem beds has a pretty enigmatic palaeo fauna. There is some literature about it, but not a whole lot. Some of it is behind a paywall and much information is pretty scattered. So I got this idea that maybe we could combine our knowledge and information to collectively get a better picture of which bone belongs to which animal, in this case, vertebrae. I know some of you have some fantastic specimens in your collections, if we combine these in this thread we might be able to see some patterns. We probabl

    Cervical vertebra Morocco

    Hi everyone, I bought this fossil, it was labelled as a possible cervical vertebra section and comes from Morocco. Has anyone got any idea what animal it may have come from? Is it part of a vertebra? Hope you can shed some light on it. Thanks.

    Kem kem vertebra

    I got this vertebra from kem kem ,Morocco for quite a while and even make a topic for help in ID before ( maybe 2-3 mo ago ? not sure can't remember) . now I finally have time to clean & remove some matrix that cover this vertebra and I hope that could help in identification of this vertebra I appreciate every comment and opinion on ID this vertebra . Thank you. Guns.
  20. I found this at a good price. It seems legitimate.
  21. Hey everyone, I recently acquired this ichthyosaur vertebra that was originally collected in Penarth, south Wales, UK. What initially struck me was the vertebra's size, since it's by far the biggest one I have of any ichthyosaur: Now, other large ichthyosaur remains have been described from the very same location. The paper is freely available here: https://bioone.org/journals/acta-palaeontologica-polonica/volume-60/issue-4/app.00062.2014/A-Mysterious-Giant-Ichthyosaur-from-the-Lowermost-Jurassic-of-Wales/10.4202/app.00062.2014.full The cliffs at Penarth apparently conta
  22. Hello, I really just wanted to get some opinions on this fossil I saw online. It's already been sold but it was going for a good price! Is it real? Dimensions were listed as 5.6" tall, found in Morocco. It's from a dealer that seems legitimate but I can't help but be skeptical because of the price! So sorry, I'm very new to the fossil community. Thank you for your time.

    Reptile Vertebra

    Here is a small vertebra I found while at my Proboscidean dig spot. I was able to find that i closely matches a reptile vertebra, but i do not know what kind of reptile based off of size and that is only has 2 wings on the sides and not 4. What do you all think?

    Strange Grab Bag of Bones

    So over the past couple of posts, i have focused on the individual bones that I have found in the overburden dig site at my plant. One spot in particular has continuously been a gold mine, and have lovingly called my Proboscidean site, after the Proboscidean scapula fragments I first found there. Over the course of 14 months (4 to 6 hours per month) I have dug up more and more fragments of different bones that eventually piece together, but now i have started to find bones of other animals. With all this I have started to wonder if there is some bigger picture I am missing trying to ID each bo
