    North Sulphur River Trip

    Pictures from my latest NSR trip. Some mosasaur verts and bones, a jaw, ammonites, baculites, and of course the normal array of oddities. No really good verts but still fun. Does anyone know what jaw this would have come from? Also the turtle looking shell and the large white bone next to it feel a lot heavier than recent bone to me so maybe Pleistocene. Ill send a few close ups of those and of the crazier stuff later.
  2. These came from creek with mix of QAL and QT, first set I'm thinking the bigger one is deer phalange, not sure about the smaller one. Next one I'm going with croc vert, threw in the antler wondering how to tell if it's fossil, does the burn test work with it as well? I'm not very good with bones so might be wrong, appreciate the help!
  3. Hey everyone, I took a chance and went out early in the light rain to see if it was safe to get into the river basin. As you can see by the lower pics it was. Found 5 (couple beat up ones not being included) verts total including what I believe is a small plesiosaur. I think there is a piece of a turtle shell, a small piece of fish jaw bone and lots of items I do not know. Also fun to go out and find some new things to learn about. I am sure there will be a lot of nice finds after the last rains. Happy hunting!
  4. Hello everyone,I've decided to open a chain of comments focusing on a popular theme: Moroccan spinosaurids. This is the first comment of a small series dedicated to analyse and document the diverse morphology of spinosaurids in the Kem Kem group. As an introduction,I'll be specifying how it will work,the rules and some guidance for those interested. First and foremost,the rules: 1)For correct identifications,I require images in various view(ventral and lateral at least) and with the highest quality possible. 2)Each comment will focuse on a specific morphotype,as

    Is this some sort of vertebra?

    I found this is Myrtle Beach South Carolina a while ago and have not been able to identify it. I can't figure out if it's some petrified piece of wood or a dolphin or whale vertebra or if it's just some random chunk of rock. One side is dome shaped and the other side is shaped the opposite like a dome piece would fit in it.

    Alberta Gold

    Went on a wild fossil hunting trip today out on private land in the Dinosaur Park fm. and found something that I’ve since reported to the Tyrrell. My best guess is a partial hadrosaur tail. The specimen is about 3 feet long by 1.5 feet wide. There was no other associated material nearby but there may be more of this dinosaur under the surface. I’ll also post a few of my favourite surface finds for today. I have a before and after photo of a vert, a large partial rib and some tyrannosaur teeth & a croc tooth.
  7. I'll start with the jrf vertebrae which I believe to be a hadrosaur cervical wondering if it is possible to narrow it down to a species if possible? And again anyone who is taking the time to look over these I thank you very much in advance.
  8. Found this mineralized bone at Big Brook Nj and on researching it, it looks very similar to photos of both Plesiosaur and Mosasaur vertebrae. About 1-3/4" long. Any help greatly appreciated!

    Batoid Vertebrae

    From the album: Delaware Fossils

    Vertebrae from either a stingray or skate. Found in close proximity to each other at a site where such things are rare, so probably from the same animal. L:arger one is about 3cm wide. Found at Reedy Point, C and D Canal, Delaware. Maastrichtian.
  10. I recently purchased this vertebrae which was sold as a mosasaur (Clidastes) vertebrae. I wasn't convinced that the vert was Mosasaur (or even marine reptile for that matter) in origin when I bought it, I simply bought it because I thought it was a nice looking vertebrae. But now I thought I might give it a shot to try and get an ID on this thing. It was found in the Gober Chalk, Austin Group, Gober, Fannin County, Texas, USA and dates back to the Campanian, Cretaceous (± 80 mya). I don't really know what the vertebrae could be honestly, I don't believe it to be Mosasaur in origin o

    Small mosasaur vertebrae

    From the album: North Sulphur River

  12. My wife and I spent a relaxing weekend at Folly Beach, SC last week and found over 300 shark teeth and other fossils. There are a few I need help identifying. The rectangular piece resembles a molar of some sorts and the 3 small pieces look like vertebrae maybe? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Moroccan Vertebrae

    I have here three vertebrae from the Kem Kem of Morocco sold as "Dinosaur or Crocodilian." Is there any way to identify which of these they belong to, and if so, can they be narrowed any further? Thank you, Bellamy First one is 1.5" long and 1.5" wide
  14. I have here three verts from the Hell Creek of Harding County, South Dakota. They were sold as dinosaur. I'm wondering if it's possible to narrow it down further than that. This one is 2.13" long and 1.89" wide

    Shark Vertebral Centra ?

    Inland Venice, FL. Typical Pleistocene material in spoil pile. First possible shark vertebrae I have found after hundreds of searches here. 5 cm diameter, 2 cm thick. Is it shark? Can an age/species able to be determined with only 1 vert? I also found (6) Lightning Whelk shells in this pile. thanks -Michael

    North Sulphur River Vert

    I took a trip to nsr after some decent rain in the middle of January. Here in Texas the weather can be hot, cold, or anything in between and it turned out it was a nice day in the 60s. I found a decent mosasaur vert, some decent ammonites, and a few other items. Let me know what you think. Pictures 4 and 5 where of a huge ammonite. You can tell by the rock pick it was over a foot wide and the picture doesn't show but the outer shell that was deteriorating was iridescent and really pretty. I don't think I have seen an ammonite with actual shell still intact however everything else

    Ray and Skate Verts

    Yesterday, a hunting companion found a Vertebra like this one. The majority of his finds were Stingray (broken) mouth plates, isolated teeth and barbs. He immediately thought he had a Stingray vert, but I said no.... Sawfish. and now I am not sure. Why is it so difficult to find verts from Stingrays (Manta, Eagle, etc) identified on the Internet? What do they look like? Can I compare a Sawfish vert to a Manta Ray Vert and note differences? In searching, I found this reference and photos https://www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/species-especes/skates/anatomy/internal-eng.html

    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

    Mazonia-Braidwood Vertebrae

    Pretty sure these are amphibian vertebrae. Found in Pit 11 in the Mazonia-Braidwood complex.
  20. After my last NSR trip, and finding a mosasaur vert, I felt like I was getting a better eye for NRS fossils. I have always heard the feeder creeks can be productive however I have searched in several never found anything in them. Now that I had more confidence I went to a more remote bridge and went for the first feeder creek I could find. It turned out to be decently productive with several more verts, none in particularly great condition though, and a jaw section. I think there is a coprolite in there too, pictures 14 and 15 maybe? I think my favorite find of all was the artifact though.
  21. Yesterday I found this piece of vertebra near the Calvert Formation at Calvert Cliffs Maryland. It seems to be a "cookie" but is taller than online pictures show and haas a strange belly button shape with a pattern in the middle. It is roughly 3-4 inches wide and 1 inch tall. Does anyone recognize this fossil?
  22. Howdy! How do you tell a Shark Vertebra from a Ray Vertebra? I can't seem to find much info online about Ray Verts. I came across (and vaguely remembered reading on a post) that ray vertebrae are more rectangular....is that true? Here are a few vertebrae that I think might be ray and if I could get a positive yay or nay on that.....I'd be very grateful! These are from Post Oak Creek in Texas - Cretaceous Era Size 4mm Size 3 mm
  23. A few weeks ago I decided to take the kids to my local park. They are building houses in this area and completed a new road which made getting to this park much quicker. Now instead of going way around it's only about a mile from my house and a much more direct shot. On the drive to the park I looked over to my right and saw some red/orange soil. The only formation in this area with that color is the Woodbine formation. "Odd," I thought. "The nearest Woodbine outcrop on the geological map is miles form here." I told my kids we were gonna make a quick pit stop for 10 minutes or so t

    Possible Bison Vertebrae

    I found this on a sandbar along the Missouri River, and in the State of Missouri, and was wanting to get confirmation on if it is a bison vertebrae.

    Levnesovia transoxiana

    Stabilized with Butvar B-76; repaired using an unspecified cyanoacrylate. Identified by Dr. Alexander Averianov as a sacral vertebrae of a juvenile Levnesovia transoxiana. The specimen is either from Dzarakuduk or an excavation near the city of Uchkuduk many years back.
