    Juvenile Mammoth

    Got up early, went out hunting to a favorite location with good friends. I had searched this spot so often that I went in believing that I would have to prospect new locations before today was over. Turned out not to be true. After 5-10 small shark teeth in each of the 1st 2 sieves, this interesting fossil fell into my lap. It is 6.5 inches long and 2.75 inches at its widest point. Going to be a great day. I will make some observations. 1) At 2.75 inches wide, it is far smaller than the width of an adult tooth and must be from a juvenile. 2) It consists of approximat

    Big cat distal radius?

    I found this radius a while back in the Brazos river in SE Texas. This piece is about 6.5 inch long. It looks much like cat radii I see online but I'm looking for other thoughts. @Shellseeker @Lorne Ledger @Harry Pristis @garyc

    Any ideas?

    I found this recently on the Brazos River in southeast Texas. It has me stumped. Any ideas? @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @fossilus @Lorne Ledger
  5. I've been scarce around the forum lately and equally scarce on the river this season. I just haven't had as much time as I would like, but the wife and I finally got out again yesterday for just the second time this season. Headed out to Gardner bright and early and hit got to the ramp about 9am. Hardly anyone was there - when you pull up and see only one vehicle besides your own, then it's going to be a quiet peaceful day on the river. The weather was (is) gorgeous. High around 80, low humidity, lots of sun, and a nice breeze. You cannot ask for better river weather. We got the k

    Humerus in Venice?

    Greetings from Venice, FL. After viewing a recent post, I am interested if anyone can identify my recovery from Pleistocene material. I believe it is the distal end of a humerus. It was crushed by a tractor. Photo A shows the distal end. The dimensions on Photo A is 5cm wide. Height is 4cm. Photo B is anterior view. It would be great if anyone could identify what animal it may have come from. Thanks in advance. -Michael
  7. 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

    Large mammal vertebra

    This is about the most complete vert that I’ve found. I’m horrible at identifying vertebrae, but I’m going to stick my neck out (pun intended) and suggest that this is a bison cervical vert. Found on the Brazos River in SE Texas
  9. 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
  10. This was found close to Charleston, SC. Any ideas on what it might be from? It looks mammal to me.
  11. Greetings from Inland Venice, FL. Unusual fossil find for me. Pleistocene material. My first thought was Dugong when I picked it up, and fit great into my hand. I have found hundreds of Dugong ribs in the last year at my location. This is an unusual one due to the smooth texture. It measures 4.5 inches long by 2 inches wide. Density is 2.51 g/cm3 if you are interested. Photo labeled "4" shows odd texture. Closeup attached. FYI: Indian artifacts confirmed to 10,000 B.C. recovered within 10 miles. I have not previously recovered any Indian artifacts. I'm looking for feedback. Thanks in a

    Bison Antiquus Upper Left Molar

    Went hunting with my Son. That in itself made it a great day. We have grown closer as we age and the separation over the last year has only made our time together more enjoyable. For most of the day, we had the numerous and excellent finds that the Peace River hunts famous. Things picked up in the last hour. Large Tooth: Clearly an upper, could be M1, or M2 or M3. The table below has measurements for a M1 and M2, but not M3. This find 35.1 mm, 22.6 mm, and 67.1 mm respectively, so I thought "maybe" the M2. I also found this photo on the Internet: Th
  13. Greetings from Inland Venice, FL. Pleistocene material. This is an unusual fossil find for me. It measures 6 inches long by 3 inches wide. It is 3.8 inches in height. Two different sides are flat. Photo A: overall image. Multiple images show worn black fossils embedded in relatively smoothed, compacted silica. This item was recovered from sand/clay, calcium carbonate material in hole approx. 10 feet deep. There were no other specimens with this type of composition recovered. FYI: Indian artifacts confirmed to 10,000 B.C. recovered within 10 miles. I have not previously recovered any

    Super Sized Tilly Bone?

    Supersized Tilly Bone? Looks like a Large Gummy Bear. Do you agree on the fossil? Not dense at all. Looks like a sample I have collected already...but this one is very large. 7 cm long, 4.2 cm wide This is a good reference piece. -Michael

  16. Hello everyone, I found these gastropods along the Sanibel Causeway in Ft. Myers, FL. They were in a pile of shells being used for landscaping so I presume that the sediments came from a nearby quarry of ?Pleistocene age, possibly the Caloosahatchee Fm. Can someone help me verify and identify this fossil? Thank you!

    Temporal Bone?

    I think this is part of a temporal bone. It's approximately 2 x 2 x 2 inches. Not expecting a taxonomic identification, I'm just hoping someone can recognize and point out a couple osteological landmarks for me so I can orient myself with respect to adjacent cranial bones and know if I should be comparing it at the left or right side of the skull as I look for a match.

    Florida Gastropod Identification Help

    Hello everyone, I found this gastropod along the Sanibel Causeway in Ft. Myers, FL. They were in a pile of shells being used for landscaping so I presume that the sediments came from a nearby quarry of ?Pleistocene age, possibly the Caloosahatchee Fm. Can someone help me verify and identify this fossil? Family Turridae? Thank you!
  20. Can anyone help me with the following fossils? (what species etc.). Made a selection of a bigger compilation (most important fossils are shown). Kind regards
  21. Can anyone help me to determine the fossils on the pictures? They are all found were bone fragments from Pleistocene and/or Holocene material has been found. Could the teeth belong to Bos primigenius (Bojanus, 1827)? I think they belong to the above mentioned art. I also found some horse teeth at some locations. The brownish coloured teeth are from Zeeland. The black teeth are from Limburg (found in water/creeks). They are black and/or brown and fossil (not recent material judging by the colour and erosion).

    McFaddin Beach: Turtle, bone? Or ?

    Hi everyone! We made a trip to McFaddin Beach a few months ago (mishmash of Pliestocene materials wash up), and found these two items, which _at first_ we thought were 1. A bone (left) and 2. a turtle scute (right), all photos. BUT - the item on the left, the bone, has kind of a nice finish, with small bubbles, on the inside (lower left photo). ?? And the item on the right, the scute, has a very interesting texture on the two flat faces. Could it still be turtle? Or could it be something else? Your input appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    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

    Cites and Fossils?

    So I was looking at some cave bear jaws for sale and saw that the same website also offers brown bear jaws(fossils). Which makes me wonder if the cave bear jaws turn out to be from an extant species,will I get in trouble? As many of you may know, pleistocene fossils contain both extinct (cave lion, mammoth, etc. ) and extant (jaguar, bear, tapir etc.) Does anyone have any experience regarding this?

    Osteoderm--glyptodont?

    Found this in Brazos River, Texas near Brookshire in sandy gravel matrix. Pleistocene era. It's pretty small. But could this be a glyptodont osteoderm? It doesn't look like the turtle/tortoise pieces I normally find. The seams are very pronounced, and the grain on broken places is very fine and not as spongy as the turtle pieces.
