    Dugong rib possible in Brazos River?

    I may be embarrassing myself here, but I can only learn if I ask. :-) I found a piece in the sandy gravel in the Brazos River bed that looks similar to dugong rib examples I've seen on the forum. While trying to identify it, I found an article online from October of 2020 that indicates people have found dugong fossils in Texas, but it seems like it's incredibly rare. I would think it may be especially unusual to find any this far inland. (Around Waller County, TX). But I do know that so far I've found a lot of pleistocene fauna fossils here that

    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
  3. I`m new to colllecting mammal fossils and thinking about buiyng this tusk. The seller said its a mastodon tusk and no the usual stegodon tusk, which seems pretty common. Couldn`t find much information about mastodons from indonesia. So I`m wondering if its real and also how "rare" is it?

    Mammoth Tusk?

    Hello everyone! I recently dug this out of a stash that's been in my family for a while. It appears to be a mammoth tusk section (with one end polished). Also, the outer part appears to have "bark " like characteristics and the polished side looks to have a different color that by other pieces I own. It appears to have schreger lines , but looks a lot different from other's I've seen in the past (color, texture, hole in middle ). This was in a box with several other items, including petrified wood. I am obviously not familiar with tusks and just wanted to see what the forum members
  5. Hey guys. My fossil group found a submerged mastodon tusk while hunting. It’s completely underwater and very delicate (it falls apart super easy). Any idea on how to extract such a delicate tusk? The thing falls apart in your hand, we could only salvage some chunks last trip. As for preserving what would you guys recommend so the dang thing doesn’t fall apart? thanks!

    Teeth or stone?

    I have found an unusual stone in my garden in Italy, in a city near Treviso. I would like to think that it is an ancient teeth or tusk, but I am unable to tell. Any help would be appreciated.

    Bones in TX

    Found some bones sticking out of the creek bank in Central TX. Area has confirmed Mastodon remains. Tusks and a tooth all found within 1/4 mile of this site. Bones are 12 feet below the top of the bank. I did a little digging around today to get a feel for what it could be. It appears it could be a large pelvis bone (4-5 feet wide). I also found a small bone that appears to be from the foot/toes etc. Not really sure how I should proceed. Is there any educational value in this type of bones? Who would one contact to ask? I am sure Mastodon bones are fairly common.
  8. Hi everyone, I'm hoping to be able to find out the identity of this tooth I found in the White River formation last summer. It has an odd triangular cross section and doesn't seem to match anything I've seen so far. I was wondering if it might be from the ancient peccary Perchoerus as I saw some similarities online when I was exploring that option. I would be interested in reading all of your opinions. The tooth is approx. 4 cm in length and 1 cm at its widest point. Photo from the field
  9. Hi, Can anybody offer me a suggestion on how to get a display stand built for my Woolly Mammoth Tusk? I used to live in Alaska. Before I left, I purchased a Tusk as a memento. Dimensions are roughly 38.5 lbs and 7.5' - 8'. It's pretty solid/stable, not polished, and I believe coated in Elmers Glue. I'm looking to get a stand made to display it. Specifically, one that supports it and doesn't apply a stress that could damage the Tusk over time. Does anybody have a recommendation on who I can contact to get a stand?

    Identification help please

    Hi everyone!!! Just having a tough time identifying whether this is fossilized wood or a fragment of tusk. It feels weighty, and doesn't feel like a regular stick of wood if that makes sense. Any help would be greatly appreciated Thank you! I should mention it was found along an estuary, and was part buried and part exposed so likely once buried and the tide had exposed it

    MAMMOTH IVORY

    Is a mammoth tusk ivory or has it been mineralized? Thanks. Tom
  12. I'm trying to identify the polished fossil material in this Georgian English snuffbox, circa 1760 to 1820. Is it mammoth ivory? Walrus? Wood? Something else? The material is set in unhallmarked sterling silver. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Adam

    Tooth, Claw, or Tusk??

    We found this piece in our creek located in Licking County, Ohio. We’ve been wondering what it was from for a several years now and have never found the answer. it is very light weight. Hopefully someone here can assist us!
  14. I’ve been offered a good deal on these tusks and i can’t determine if they are real or not from the photos. I can’t seem to see the Schreger lines from the photos. I have mastodon tusk and mammoth tusk that I know is real because I found it, but this is a bit of a head scratcher for me. Does anyone who is familiar with identifying ivory from photos have a clue? Thank you!

    Partial Tusk?

    I am relatively new to fossiling, but I am excited that on my second trip out I found something very interesting. I found either a metatarsal from some land based animal or a tusk. Its very oval and some kind of enamel that is about 1/4 in thick. Found in Alafia River, Polk County, FL

    Rivergods smiled

    Sometimes it is hard to believe how lucky I am in hunting fossils. I was on the Peace River prospecting. Mostly small teeth (no GWs, Makos, Megs). My find of the day was half a giant tortoise humerus. With the afternoon moving to a close, this Tusk dropped into my sieve. I think that this is a Mammoth yearling and I am looking for confirmation or skepticism. 1) It is about 7 inches long with the tip broken. It is 2.25 inches (57 mm) in diameter at the butt. 2) The butt end I believe to be round rather than oval and not broken. I have seen many broken tusks and they do not ha

    Sonoma Coast Fossil (?)

    Hi! Sorry for the low-quality photos. Not sure if this a rock or fossil. It has an almost honeycomb pattern on the inside. Found at the beach on the Sonoma Coast in Northern California. Thank you for taking a look at it.

    Attaching ivory

    Hi all! I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to Attach two pieces of ivory? I tried gluing, but it didn’t work well. I stabilized it with a 50/50 clear elmers/water mixture, and it’s pretty solid now, but I don’t know what to do because I still can’t glue it.

    Tusk/Corral/Stone?

    I found my dog chewing on this in our backyard after he had been digging. I'm curious as to what it may be, and whether or not I should let him keep it! It is roughly 7 centimeters wide at the base and 13 centimeters long. Found in Fort Worth, Texas. Any information is appreciated! Thanks!
  20. Hi! Back when I was 10-12 I was hiking in Iowa when I found this "dinosaur tooth rock", which I have carried around for almost 25 years. I have always wondered if it was part of a mammoth tusk, a tooth, or maybe even a Native American whetstone. Or possibly just a weird rock? Any ideas? Thanks so much for any input!! Specs: Weighs = 2 lbs Length = 7 inches Circumference = 8.75 inches Height = 2 inches

    STH Bone/tooth/tusk?

    Hi everyone, I have what I thought was a mammal tooth until I cleaned the end off. From research online the end looks tusk like but I don't want to get over excited. Let me know what you think. Size is 1.8 inches

    Mammoth, Elephant, or Rhino fossil?

    Good afternoon everyone, Im looking to possibly buy this unique and large fossil. Just not exactly sure what it is. It’s from Indonesia.
  23. This is my second mammoth tusk of the year, but while the first I found was rock solid and all that remained was one side of the tusk, this one is whole and a lot more fragile. After getting it home I made the stupid decision to wash it off in the sink, thinking that the sandstone matrix adhering to the tusk was just ordinary sand and river gravel and would come off just as easily. Instead, the water soaked into the tusk's core and when I tried picking it up it snapped in half. It took a couple of days sitting under a window and wrapped in paper towels for the water to finally get drawn

    Possible Bone Nebraska

    Hey everyone, Posting for a buddy. He only has the one pic and not sure if he will need more or with him doing. Found in Chappell, Nebraska. Thanks in advance for any help.
  25. Hi im and amateur collector and I'm not sure if the was the right section to post this under. I purchased this tusk a couple years ago. The seller said he's had it since the 1970s. Because of the large crack from top to bottom and the inside is quite powdery. Is there and thing I can do to preserve it? Its about 6.5 feet along the curve and 120lb so I get worried when I move it. Also I see that great patina on some tusks is that something that is added 5o make it shine or does it comes out of the ground like that? Any help would be appreciated!
