  1. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dyi

    Fossilized Arizona Human Footprint (?)

    Let me start this off with two disclaimers: 1- I am sorry if this post would be more appropriate on an archeology forum. I would think that it would be fine here, however, because the "footprint" impression does appear to be fossilized. And because I have yet to join any archeology forums. I anyone has a recommendation for a good archeology forum let me know. 2- Being almost entirely engulfed in learning about just the Cretaceous of my local area, paleoanthropology is a bit out of my purview. So bear with me if I sound like I don't know what I am talking about. Because
  3. Bison bison. Wisconsin glaciation. Southern Minnesota, Brown County. Science Museum of Minnesota. Found in a riverbed in September of 2020 on a joint citizen scientist and Science Museum outing. I found this femur by noticing the femoral head sticking out of the river bottom. External Post:

    Ideas on Pathological Centrum?

    Hi Fossil Forum, I found this centrum last Tuesday (Fort Bend county, TX, Beaumont Formation-Pleistocene) that has an odd hole running straight through the middle of it that I suspect is pathological. While I know isolated vertebra (and partial ones at that) are near impossible to identify, I was curious if anyone had any ideas on possible candidates for an animal it could have come from and what might have potentially caused the pathology. I'd appreciate any feedback you'd care to offer. Dimensions at the widest points are roughly 7.2cm top to bottom, 7.6cm side to sid

    Long bone

    I’m posting this for a friend. He found it on the Brazos River in Southeast Texas. It seems too long and robust to be horse or bison. My initial thought is mammoth or mastodon tibia. Unfortunately, the distal and proximal ends are missing. Any other thoughts? I can get more photos from him if necessary. Thanks!
  6. This heavy, solid as a rock fragment is what I believe to be a skull fragment. I'm thinking Columbian mammoth? Maybe a juvenile? I have found juvenile pieces in the same area. I found this yesterday, Thursday, on a rock bank...can't even say gravel because there are sooo many rocks on the ground in this one particular area. And this appeared no different than most of what's out there when I saw it. I just so happened to look at this piece a little more carefully than anything else. Everything is covered in mud or dry dirt and green algae and many of these foramen holes were filled in by sand
  7. A follow-up/continuation of my previous post, here are some of the fossil invertebrates from the Pleistocene Waimanalo Formation of Oahu, Hawaii, USA. First the echinoids. I haven't speciated these yet

    Bos Genus

    Hello knowledgeable folks, Found this bovine tooth roots up in mud on the shoreline of the San Francisco Bay. Assumed it was modern cow because if the attached stylid and size but after some cleaning and testing- it appears to show signs mineralization. Is it possibly a bos genus fossil? I’d probably need to alert someone if that were the case…

    Cro-Magnon skull?

    Hello, I came across this listed as a piece of Cro-Magnon skull, specifically the right parietal bone. Age seems to be Pleistocene, and it's said to be from a gravel pit in Poland. I was wondering if it looks correct and legitimate? It certainly looks like a skull bone of some sort. I did find this post that discussed another supposed Cro-Magnon bone (seems like it turned out not to be one), and there may be some legal/ethical concerns here as well. Perhaps I need to consult an anthropologist? Thanks.
  10. Dear fellow forum members, I am going through old boxes, in this case with some of my rare own finds (as opposed to bought, gifted and inherited fossils) These I found at a coast of the mediterranean, where the waves gnawed at soft sandstone. On a ledge below the fossiliferous layer there where fragments and some intact shells with and without remaining matrix, and this tooth, without, but weathered and feeling heavy. The shells I could identify (Diodora, Arca) do have living species, Diodora goes back to the Miocene, not sure about the others. So the age could be miocene t

    Eight North Sea bone fragments

    Hi all. These are eight bone fragments that I found a couple of years ago on the beach near the Zandmotor, the Netherlands. I realize that most (if not all) of these fragments probably are impossible to id, but any information would be great. Some additional pictures of fragment 1: Number two has a tiny whole (foramen) in it. Here is an extra photo of the top of the fragment: And some more pictures of fragment three: Number 6 at first sight appears to be part of some kind o

    Bone identification needed.

    I collect armadillo fossils. All of my fossils have been purchased and I have been able to identify most of them using the internet. The attached photos are from bones I purchased labeled Holmesina carpals. Both seem to be the same bone, one from holmesina septentrionalis and one from holmesina floridanus (my guess). They are both river finds from Northern Florida, USA. I have not been able to find a photo or diagram showing this bone. Does anyone have a photo or diagram showing this bones position in the skeleton. If these bones are not from the Holmesina genus, I would like to know th
  13. I found this horse molar (right tooth in the photo). It seems to have an isolated protocone as 3 toed horses do, but it is large (31mm left to right) and looks almost the same as most equuid teeth I have found. It is about 95 mm long- and does have a curve which you don't see in the photo. Large 3 toed horse or is it pathologic? @Shellseeker
  14. I had a couple of requests to show the shark teeth that I have found from Hawaii. I am pleased that folks are interested! All of the fossils were collected directly from the Mid- to Late- Pleistocene Waimanolo Formation. The formation is a mixture of deltaic/nearshore limestone and unconsolidated sands and silts. First, the shark material. There are a group of teeth and two vertebral centra. The shark teeth are in various stages of mineralization, with some completely phosphatized while others haven't altered much since they fell out of the shark's mouth. They a
  15. Hi everyone, I am trying to find the following stuff someone is willing to trade. - Mosasaurus partial jaws or matrix pieces, not repaired or restored. From Morocco. - Belgian Megalodon teeth - Mastodon tooth - Quality Spinosaurus teeth, larger ones. I got a lot to offer, mostly teeth and jaws from dinosaurs and ice age relater animals.

    Caddisfly Larva?

    Hi again everyone! I have a small fossil from a unit of lacustrine laminated silt from here in Saskatoon from the very late Pleistocene or early Holocene. The unit directly overlays a unit of till from the Wisconsinan glaciation. The unit contains carbonized plants stems, some of which are filled with wood boring beetle larva frass, diatoms, and burrows similar to Cruziana. In one of these hollowed-out burrows, I found this fossil, which is approximately 0.5 mm in length. It is composed of many extremely small carbonized plant fragments, all arranged horizontally from longest to shortest. I ha

    Mystery Vertebra - Estate Sale

    This vertebra was found at an estate sale in a box of rocks in Minnesota. It is partially mineralized, but I don't believe it is mineralized enough to be much older than Pleistocene. I realize it is fairly damaged but does anybody have reasonable guess as to what it might be from?

    FL Fossil Tooth ID Needed

    Hello everyone. I'm sure this is easy for the more experienced, but I need help with this tooth from a Florida Riverbed in the USA. Thank you! Probably a mammal from the Pleistocene, is that correct? Thanks again.
  20. I was told the rib could belong to some Pleistocene horse or a young mammoth. There were also proposals that the vertebra belonged to the steppe bison or the woolly rhinoceros. They both were found in Eastern Lesser Poland. What do you think? Thanks in advance!
  21. Last weekend after a windy week I decided to go to the beach of Katwijk aan Zee (Netherlands) to see what fossils had washed up. It was a lovely walk along the North Sea. Mammal remains from the Pleistocene (part of the Neogene period) sometimes wash up on the Dutch coast. The bone material comes from layers that are eroded below the sea surface. In the Pleistocene the North Sea was a kind of tundra plain where various animals lived such as woolly mammoth and rhinoceros, the giant deer, eland, wild horses, red deer, musk oxen, steppe bison, cave bear, cave
  22. Hi! I’m still trying to identify one fossil from a particular unit of Pleistocene/Early Holocene lacustrine silt from my hometown of Saskatoon, but I figured I would look away from it for a bit to try and identify another fossil from the same unit I’ve been unable to classify. I have two specimens, both apparently of the same species. They are both approximately 0.5 millimetres across. They are perfectly circular, with lines radiating from the centre and rings of alternating colours (possibly representing growth lines). One specimen is photographed dorsally, showing its circular shape, the ot

    Bone fragment

    Here’s a chunk of crocogator I found on the Brazos River in SE Texas. It doesn’t look like the typical osteoderms that are found . I’m not sure if there’s enough here to identify a specific bone…
  25. Hello! Thank you all for taking the time to read this and (hopefully!) help me identify a very interesting find from Saskatoon! I was on a fossil hunting trip to a local exposure of Pleistocene glacial lake sediments in Saskatoon, and I took home a few samples of it to review later. While looking through one piece (the material is silt but breaks like a rock and is somewhat laminated), I saw this very strange shape. Attached are a few images, some simply in situ, others through a microscope. My apologies if the image quality is not ideal, I do not currently have any better equipment. There ar
