    Possible Horse/cow fossils?

    Hey guys new to the forums and thought I’d make a post to have you guys help identify some possible fossils that i found in a local creek after heavy rains.There are lots of mission era ranches so there is a possibility of them being old but not fossilized cow bones. Let me know what you guys think

    Bison Bonanza part 2

    Today was Martin Luther King day. I had the day off of work. So I slept in and then I got ready, packed my gear and headed back out to the bison site. It was bright and sunny, but 40 degrees with the wind blowing hard. Thankfully I would be down in the creek and the wind would not be much of an issue. There were a few more exposed bones I wanted to collect. One exposed bone was long and thin. I thought it was part of a thoracic vertebra. Just to the right of it was the edge of a very wide and flat bone. The first bone lay diagonal across part of the top of the second bone. I began to remo
  4. Hello!! Just wanted to share with the forum some of my fossils and bones that I do not need identified but would love thoughts on nonetheless. The elephant bone is of a four tusker- the upper part of the tibia, and completely mineralized, and very heavy. It is anywhere from 13-15 myo. The tortoise shell frags include the lip of the shell, as well as a nice slab of the plastron- found separately, but in the same creek. Tortoises were in Nebraska 8-15 mya. The horse tibia has been identified as either the tibia of the small three-toed horse Pseudhipparion, or t

    Central Texas Creek

    I went on this hunt about two weeks ago, but only am getting around to posting it now. It was a great day at a new spot close to my usual stomping grounds. I was hunting under a bridge the week before when someone walking the path next to it asked if I had any luck - his name was Leo, and we actually recognized each other as both of us have posted about some of our Austin finds on reddit before. (PS - pardon the picture quality, most of these are screenshots from video) He invited me to hunt with him at a spot of his on the same creek close by sometime. I wa

    Partial Pelvis

    Collected this partial pelvis yesterday from Pleistocene deposits near Houston TX. I think is bison based on the extra (2nd) acetabular notch but I'm hoping someone can confirm this feature is diagnostic to bovine.

    Buffalo tooth or cow tooth?

    This tooth was found in a creek in Washington county, MO. Can someone verify if this is a bison or cow tooth.

    Jr. Bison? or Bos

    Found on river gravel bar in Sothern Minnesota. I know its a partial bovid skull - any ideas on species? I'm thinking young male bison. Sediments in the area range from cretaceous to holocoen with a good amount of Wisconsin lobe glacial till. Previously we have found bison, mammoth, and ancient horse...

    Cow or bison tooth?

    Hey folks! I found this tooth while walking through the castle river in southern Alberta, in the mountains. It was lying on the river gravels; the river is very low currently and would normally be flowing over where i found the tooth. I've read a few posts here regarding the debate of cow vs bison, I think this stylid seems to me quite prominent but, I'm no expert! Heh. Sorry about the ruler being in inches, it was the only one i could find! It doesn't seem to be fossilized at all but from wear and color I would say it is fairly old. Bison used to be in this area in pre-settler times so I feel

    Sacrum--Bison or Something Else?

    The Brazos River has been receding daily, and I found this sacrum two days ago laying in sandy gravel that had just been exposed. Mostly Pleistocene fossils here. Due to its size, I thought it may be from one of the larger herbivore mammals. But due to wear, it's a little hard for me to tell how tapered or straight the original structure was, which seems pretty diagnostic in differentiating between the species. Several examples I've seen look similar, but I'm having a hard time finding any with sizes listed, so I'm a little lost. Can anyone shed some more light on this?

    NE Kansas | KS River | Metatarsal ID

    Found a good thread by @tracer on bos vs bison metatarsal Below are a couple I have that I would like to get an opinion on. Per the thread above I have my guesses but the smaller diameter is making me wonder if I have the right species or if it’s an age issue. Thank you

    NE Kansas | Kansas River | Bone ID

    Hello. A quick introduction. I have been walking the kaw for decades and have amassed a collection of artifacts and bones. What I have not amassed is the ID skills, especially between bison and cow. There are hints in the area I hunt that at one time, long ago, a butchery that either has eroded off the bank or they discarded items into the river. Guessing it was near Grantville, Kansas. So it can be a bit confusing for me between that and how the river deposits in general can age at different rates depending on where they’ve been hiding out. I really look forward to getting to kno
  13. Greetings I am a Geologist who works in Northern Alberta and B.C., and I have been finding some great Pleistocene Horse and Bison bones in river gravels. My bones were looked at and samples sent for Carbon dating through the provincial Museum and a Professor buddy of mine. The Horse bones were 22-25k years old and the Bison bone was 44k years old. They paid for the analyses and I am donating them to the Museum. All were found within a couple kilometers on the same river. I found these two this year. They were very close to where I found the Horse bones.

    Little Tea Pot Short and Stout

    Thoughts on this stout metacarpal? Southern Minnesota gravel/river find. I only ask because farmers have run their cattle on the river in this area since I was a young man. This looks like bison to me though based on the proximal end and how stout it is.

    Bison?

    Found this along the Kansas River in NE Kansas. I know it is a distal humerus, but am I right to assume this is a bison species?

    UK Vertebrae ID

    I'm trying to help someone ID some vertebrae they found recently. They were found in east London, around 4 meters underground in black sticky soil. My first thought was that they looked similar to dolphin vertebrae, and my knowledge of stuff like that isn't great, so any help would be much appreciated! (Actually, I've just realised they're probably from a bison or something similar - I haven't a clue when it comes to mammal verts. The black preservation seems odd though.)

    Season Ending Hunt

    Yesterday I made one last trip to the Peace River to end this hunting season. When I checked the depth and flow gauges it showed both had increased as a result of recent rain but not enough to make a trip unsafe. The one caveat was the prediction of rain and possible thunder storms in my target area by 2 pm. It is really the threat of afternoon thunder storms almost everyday now that is the impetus to end the season. So, I got an early start and was on the river by 7:40 am with the intention of calling it a day by 2 pm. I headed back to the spot I have been digging in for the last four tr

    Help with teeth ID, any bison?

    My collection of teeth I have tried to ID and want to see if I got any of them right, all came from creek that is QAL. First group I think is bovid, maybe little one on end deer? Next 2 teeth I'm not sure about, last group thinking might be bison. Wasn't sure if pictures of root end are needed.

    Unknown bones

    Purchased together as one lot a long time ago from online auction, was also sold as unknown bones. If you need a better photo of anything let me know. I did the repair as well with hydrocal as it was broken. Zero smell with burn test on both. Curious if someone could share opinoin ?

    Bison metatarsal?

    I didn't have much luck trying to ID a group of bones so thought I would try just one and maybe I can figure the rest out. It's from a creek that's all QAL not far from Trinity river. Passed the burn test, it's worn so makes it even harder for me, leaning toward bison. Would appreciate a definite ID!

    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
