    3 teeth and half a mandible

    Hello all. I have a few fossils for you guys to take a look at. Hope it’s ok if I stick all 4 of them in one topic. My father pulled these out of the wall or side of a 50 m/164 ft deep lake on one of his diving expeditions, Vinkeveense Plassen in the Netherlands. The lake where these were found was formed when a layer of peat/turf was removed to be used as fuel, below it was a vast layer of sand which was dredged up to a depth of about 50 meters m / 164 ft. The fossils themselves were found at depths of 30 m / 98 ft to 40 m / 131 ft. As my dad

    Rodent jaw

    I found this mandible (I think) near Bloomington, Indiana over the weekend and was wondering if anyone could give me an ID on it. I believe it's the mandible of a rodent, but that's about as far as I get. Seems to large for a mouse or rat, but maybe a muskrat, shrew (if those are bigger?), or squirrel? And I'm guessing it's more recent rather than fossil?
  3. Hello everyone, can you help me identifying this mandible fragment, I'm unsure of what it can be, maybe Raccoon or a mustelid. I'm sure some Florida expert can determine much better than me what this can be

    Nimravid! But which one?

    Hi guys! Recently I got in a trade this nimravid mandible from the white river formation in Shannon County. Now I want to ask your help to determine the genus, if possible. Being incomplete and missing all the teeth it's quite difficult but it has a quite elongate mandible flange and by the number of the alveoli it had three teeth. I think it can be Hoplophoneus, what do you think about it?

    New member fossil ID

    Hello Everyone, I am a new member on fossil forum! However, I am not new to paleontology. I am 13 and have been obsessed with fossils since before I could walk. I have two fossils I need identified, the first one is a jawbone I bought at a sale from a private collector. I recognize that it is probably not valuable, but I would like it identified. The man who sold it (he was a naturalist) identified it as a herbivorous lizard's partial mandible, anybody able to shed some light on it? The other fossil is what I presume to be a footprint cast, I have had two geologists look at it and

    Cameloid skull and ramus- NE SD ?

    Whew. Last one with identifying marks to identify. Is a museum cast. UNSM 4616 Sure, I could email the collections curator at Morril Hall, but I’m afraid to wear out my welcome. As of yet have been unable to find data on this one on my own. Figure I’ll give yinze a crack at it before I bother the museum for the twentieth time. My research shows this to be a camel of some sort. It is likely Nebraska or South Dakota in origin for the original due to the provenance of the other casts yinze have seen me dealing with the last few weeks.

    Calvert cetacean mandible ID

    Found this mandible in a rock fall at Calvert cliffs in June. I believe it’s mysticete because of the lack of tooth sockets, but am open to complete redirection if I’ve got it all wrong. Any ideas?

    Possible bison find?

    Hey everyone, So I found some old bones as I was out hiking yesterday (a good way to social distance ). I have a suspicion they may be bison, but I realize I am in ag country were cows are plentiful. I found a scapula, a chunk of upper jaw with teeth, two femurs, and one mandible. I have been trying to possibly identify them but I have no way of proving anything without some help. I grabbed a cow skull, scapula, and mandible at a friends farm to help compare. I guess I should also point out that I believe these have fossilized- they are heavy and the burn test seemed to yiel

    First for my collection

    Found this a couple of days back... how hard could it be to identify? A lower predator mandible with 1 complete carnassial and two half teeth, vertically split. How many small predators existed in the Florida fossil record? Look at the m1. That is different from both the canid (fox, coyote) m1 and felis (margay, bobcat) m1 you can find on TFF ID threads. So I checked out raccoon and possum ... nope!! Then I started looking at research papers comparing different type of predator m1s. I was always looking for the smaller predators. Then I stumbled on an old TFF thread, http://www.t
  11. Good evening I just now found this tooth so I begin digging around and have discovered the maxilla in the mandible including a whole bunch of teeth! But they are falling apart! I have pieces parts of everything else besides this one tooth! Does anybody happen to know what animal would have A tooth like this?
  12. On a whim I decided to stop by the Big Brook site in NJ to see what might have washed up after the rain yesterday...not a lot of shark teeth at all but plenty of weird mammal bits for some reason! I'm not good at all with figuring out mammal material so I figured I'd post some pictures to the forum and get people's thoughts. (Also I suppose it remains to be seen whether this is genuine Pleistocene material or stained, semi-recent bones...) These are smartphone pics (& Android at that) so excuse the quality. This first one is a tiny jaw of what I'm assuming is a rodent of some k
  13. Found a tooth walking along the gravel/sandbars of a creek in central Iowa (Des Moines lobe) and came across the tooth on the right. I was surprised to find both these jaws about 1,000 ft apart and a mile downstream. I assumed they were the source, but looks like the loose tooth may be an upper (it's larger) and both these jaws seem to be full. The teeth don't seem to match up symmetrically either, making me think it might be different individuals. Modern and ancient bison remains are pretty commonly found here (the former being extirpated ~100 years ago), but I figure cows are just common eno

    Possible micro mandible found.

    Hello member of TFF. I finally got a chance to really dig (sort of pun intended) into some matrix I bought back in December of 2013 from I believe tj102569 (but it's been so long I cannot find the sale post anymore). If I remember correctly the matrix was from a quarry in possibly Grant county South Dakota. But it was definitely from a quarry in South Dakota (yeah I know there are more than one). The matrix is pretty hard. Engraver and dental pick don't do much more than scratch the stuff. The seller at the time said he used a hammer to just break it open and find sharks teeth. Bu

    Help with Fish jaw ID

    From the Meherrin River in NE North Csrolina. Local geology and preservation suffuse Plio-Pleistocene. I've eliminated tuna, grouper, wahoo, seabass, drum, sturgeon and tarpon. Im out of ideas. Thoughts?

    Mammal mandible IDs

    I have two mandibles from Asia probably Siberia that I need help IDing. #1 is a hair over 4" and the most complete tooth has a pointed premolar. #2 is 6 1/2" and all the teeth are complete besides the first molar. It looks very similar to some deer mandibles I have but the teeth are twice the height and half the width. Thank you for looking! #1

    Tooth and Mandible Identification

    Hi, I found this tooth and possibly the upper mandible in an arroyo in New Mexico in a place called Copper Canyon. It is about 5.5 miles from Ghost Ranch. The layer is most likely late triassic chinle formation but it's on a major fault. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Raccoon mandible

    Found what I believe is a raccoon on mandible digging gravel in a creek Wauchula Florida today. The bone is heavier than I would expect for the size and has a very dark which color. not sure though if it's fossilized because the teeth have not turned that dark color yet. the bone matches the same color and size fossil deer antler peace from the same Creek found today. I have a new appreciation for the work that goes into Florida fossil hunting @jcbshark Although I'm sure it was much harder than it would have been had to come at the ri

  20. The plesiosaur has long been one of my favorite prehistoric creatures of all, especially after reading tales of the Loch Ness Monster. I've always wanted a jaw from one, thankfully @StevenJDennis recently scouted this beauty for me from Tucson. I estimate roughly 30% restoration, mainly to the rear portion of the joint(?) and some filler. Also, majority of the teeth have been planted from Zarafasaura oceanis, another elasmosaur. Still, he's earned a spot as one of my showpiece fossils. He measures 17 inches long and 7 inches wide. Plesiosaur Mandible Elasmosauridae (Libonectes atlasense Buc

    Hell Creek - Tiny jaw bones

    We were exploring the Hell Creek Formation in Montana, and found very similar sections of jaw bone. It seems like structurally, this section was the strongest and most likely to survive. As you can see, they are very small... Any idea on what these might have come from?? Thanks for any tips!

    Does anyone have any idea what it is?

    Reptilian or Mammalian?

    HiI've had this section of a mandible for a while. It was from a rock collection left under a house when tenants left. Think it's Mammalian, but possibly reptilian? Could use help to determine. Thanks.
