  1. I started a post about my first Pleistocene Texas Coast finds and was going to add to that anything I found over the subsequent week I was at the Texas Coast in Port Aransas, but I decided they needed their OWN post because wow...I had some great finds over the next 5 days of beachcombing! I had heard there could be shark teeth found in this particular spot, so that was really what I was looing for, but quickly realized, the bone material was surprisingly abundant! As I mentioned previously, I have tried finding fossils in various spots on the Texas Coast but had not had any luck but apparen

  3. 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

    Texas Coast Pleistocene

    I am on the Texas Coast for the second time this year!! My husband and I stayed in the Tarpon Inn in Port Aransas for New Years, just for a couple of days and now, this week, my parents rented a house in Port A so I am here for the Second time in 2022....more beach time in the last two weeks than the last two years!! I love the Texas Coast in the winter. Right now it is 74 degrees and I'm hanging out under the tiki cabana writing this. Tomorrow will be cool and possibly rainy, so I am getting my fossil (and shell) hunting in today. So, as for the fossils. They may not seem like m

    Florida sloth tooth need help for ID

    Hi everyone! Recently I have purchased these tooth but they just write as sloth. The location is North Florida. Pleistocene period. I know there are some sloth species there so could you help me to get a science name for these tooth? Thanks guys!

    Mammal Cervical Vertebra

    Hi Help with ID please. My wife found this yesterday whilst we were walking the Holderness Coast. It’s mainly Boulder clay with lots of erratics but there is some Pleistocene material that gets washed up very now and then. Not sure if it’s modern tho. Thanks

    Miami Beach Fossil ID

    Hello and Happy New Year from Miami! I found an interesting rock on the beach a little while back and I can't seem to determine what it is. Since it was found at Miami Beach, it should be Pleistocene Miami Limestone. The specimen is about 3 inches in length. It looks quite similar to an image I found online of a seal humerus: Thank you :)

    Mississippi Pleistocene Tooth

    From the Pleistocene of Mississippi. It’s definitely a Canine and I’d say Carnivore. I sent the pictures to someone I trust who is very knowledgeable and they said Catamount/Puma. Just looking to see some more input on it, and to let everyone else enjoy it.

    Florida Pleistocene ID’s

    Hey all! I have some peace river mammal teeth I’m looking for help with. I’m hoping someone more knowledgeable than myself can find something with these teeth. I know a couple aren’t great but hoping for the best! Thanks all! 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) The root on this one is super cool, seems like a wide root!

    Some teeth in jaw

    Fighting a sinus infection but made it out to the river today for a brief look. Southeast Texas gravel bar. Mostly Pleistocene, but older fossils are theoretically possible from exposures up river. Didn't find much since the river is up, but my most interesting find was this jaw fragment with some teeth intact. Since the biting surfaces are so worn, I'm having trouble with an ID. Is it possible to ID this based on tooth size/shape/location in the jaw? Or to at least narrow it down more so I can refine what type of teeth I should be comparing it to? Thank

    Mammoth/Mastodon partial sacrum

    I found this reasonably well preserved partial sacrum (which I assume is either mammoth or mastodon), in the Brazos, a week and a half ago. It is finally dried out and I was able to treat it with paraloid. It was extremely fragile when found it. Size is about 290mm, 11.5 inches left to right in the photos. Is there any way to tell if it is mammoth vs mastodon? I've found both in this spot. I've not been able to find good images online, particularly for mastodon and nothing that describes differences (other than one note that said they may be hard to differentiate). Thanks!
  12. Hi everyone, I recently acquired this piece which I'm fairly certain is a piece of the brain case. The issue is I don't know what animal it's from. I've looked at pictures of skulls of cetaceans, deer, bear, camel, everything I could think of. The closest I saw is a fossil peccary skull that was for sale on etsy but I couldn't find any other examples to compare it to. What do you all think? measurements are 2.25 inches wide 2 inches tall, 2.5 inches long.

    Maricopa Brea Bird Material

    I am just going through some miscellaneous pieces that I have in my collection. I received these 3 pieces from my fossil mentor Walter Lietz, about 30 years ago, he received them in a trade with a fossil dealer from California named Judy Owyang. I met Ms. Owyang a couple of times when she would come up to the Chicagoland area and meet at Walter’s house. All 3 pieces are to have come from Maricopa Brea and are supposed to be bird fossils. I was wondering if someone knows what type of bird the claw belongs too, it looks like a raptor to me.

    Interesting piece of tusk

    I found this piece of tusk on the Brazos River in southeast Texas. I’m not seeing the typical schreger lines that determine if it’s mammoth vs mastodon. This could be Pleistocene or Miocene . The coaster is 4 inch diameter.

    Giant Sloth Phalanx?

    Since the river has been going down, I've been wanting to go out for a long while to check the newly exposed gravel. Finally got a chance and felt up to it a little while before dark yesterday and found a few things. Sandy gravel matrix with Pleistocene and possible Miocene in southeast Texas. I'm thinking this is a medial phalanx from a giant Sloth. Can anyone confirm?

    Rhinoceros or buffalo ribbon?

    Hi folks! Recently I found a ribbon from a Paleolithic site which dating about 21000- 10000BP. As the size of this huge, I don’t know if it belongs to the rhinoceros buffalo? Note: I try to put together with the vertebrae of bison priscus from Europe (TH8 bone) and it bigger.
  20. After a lengthy hiatus, I was able to return to the only known fossil collecting locality on Guam, situated south of the Orote Peninsula on the Philippine Sea. Pleistocene (?) crab fossils can be found by beachcombing the beach gravels between the high and low tide marks at this site. It is thought that they were scooped up during dredging of nearby Apra Harbor in the 1940s during development of the navy base, and deposited on the opposite side of the peninsula as dredge spoil, and are likely late Pleistocene to early Holocene in age, but without knowing the source strata, it's only a guess.

    Mystery Bone - Pleistocene?

    Mystery bone fragment. Partially mineralized. Found on a riverbank in southern Minnesota. Deposits on the river are mostly Pleistocene to modern ( with a couple Cretaceous band cut through). My first thought was a very old very tumbled calcaneus (horse or bison size). But the depression, pointed out in red circle, does not seem to match either of those. I know its very worn but thought I'd give it a shot here.

    Horned skull fossil--Goat? Muskox?

    Found a mineralized skull fragment with broken horn bases in the sandy riverbed of the Brazos River in southeast Texas. Mostly pleistocene fossils here. The horns seem fairly close-set, which I wouldn't expect with bison. But they're fairly wide and thick, so I was leaning away from things like deer or antelope. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks. --Brandy
