    Big find at Big Brook Preserve

    I just took my friends out for a fossil trip their first time yesterday; where we could all get together and do something cool and introduce them to the fun pastime and interesting research I dabble in for my birthday. I should’ve known he’d have beginners luck but I was not expecting this find when he plucked it out from the water. They all had a blast and it was a beautiful day. Any and all input into trying to discern what creature it could’ve came from? The more the merrier! A couple other angles

    Utah Vertebrae

    So I sorta impulse purchased these 4 little vertebrae from a rock shop (they were cheap, and looked like nice teaching specimens). They are from Utah, but have no further provenance than that. I am fully aware that complete identification of them is impossible without locality, but it would be great to even just get them down to a family. And heck if someone might have an idea on what formation they could have come from I'm all ears.
  3. I fossil hunted the lower limestone flag member of middle Eagle Ford Formation in Travis County, Texas USA yesterday. I came up with three nice finds. The first is a 130 mm x 75 mm section of a large ~2' diameter ammonite. Two pics included but it is difficult to make out. I think it is an EUOMPHALOCERAS genus, based on GEOLOGICAL SURVEY PROFESSIONAL PAPER 274-C 1955. Any different opinions? The second find is a 15 mm wide Ptychodus Occidentalis per Shawn Hamm's recent email help for me on a couple of 10 mm wide Ptychodus out of 8 total located ~1/2 mile NE from the subject area.

    Elasmosaurus vertebrae?

    Was purchased as an Elasmosaurus vertabrae from Morocco 5.91" x 6.19" I found one similar online but the one I acquired seems to be a little more on the flat side. One of the processes has been repaired and seems to be stabilized. If it is indeed from an Elasmosaur, could it just be from a different section of the spine and is why it has a flatter profile? If so, what section could it be from? I'm just trying to get all the information on it that I can. The last three pics will be of the one I found online. Thank you in advance!
  6. Founded at a land site in Sarasota. I think it's alligator, what kind of vertebrae are these

    Broken Phosphate fossil

    Hello everyone. I recently bought this heavy piece of Mosasaur spine in matrix. During transport the top of one of the vertebra got smashed to little pieces and dust (not the sellers fault, it coulnd't be packed better). The fossil now shows the inside of the vert (wich is also beautiful to my opinion). Where the piece broke off the fosfat stone is quite soft though. Should I stabilise/fixate it and how can I do this? Thanx for tips! Jerry

    Unknown Florida Vertebrae

    Found the most complete vertebrae today. Caramel brown with intact neural canal. Same location I recovered a Hesperotestudo crassiscutata carapace in January. Inland Venice, Florida. Mostly Pleistocene material here. I don't think it is a gator. Your assistance is appreciated. -Regards,
  9. 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

    Vertebrae id

    Because of a recent post by @GPayton I went through a pile of unidentified bones and found three vertebrae that I think might be alligator or crocodile. These are from the Brazos River in Texas. Please confirm that these are crocodilian if possible…. @Harry Pristis @fossilus @Shellseeker here’s #1

    Unknown VERTEBRAE Venice

    Vertebrae from inland Venice, Florida. Land find. 57mm wide x 75mm high. Side A to Side B measures 52mm. Pleistocene material found in this site. I found a glyptodont osteoderm in this area last week. ID assistance appreciated. I am also looking for a "handy guide" on vertebrae identification. If you can point the way that would help me with several other Vert I have recently found. -Regards Michael

    UK Vertebrae ID

    I'm trying to help someone ID some vertebrae they found recently. They were found in east London, around 4 meters underground in black sticky soil. My first thought was that they looked similar to dolphin vertebrae, and my knowledge of stuff like that isn't great, so any help would be much appreciated! (Actually, I've just realised they're probably from a bison or something similar - I haven't a clue when it comes to mammal verts. The black preservation seems odd though.)

    Shark Fossil ID

    Found a nice tooth and a vertebrae yesterday while hunting on Morris Island in South Carolina. Wondering what shark this is and how old my vertebrae might be. Tried to follow tips so pardon my newbness, if I didn’t do a great job. lol

    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.
  15. 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!
  16. 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!

    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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  22. 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

  24. 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.
