    Beauty in the beast

    I went fossil hunting last week in SE Texas heat and humidity. Not a lot of finds but I did find this proximal humerus encased in sandstone. I wanted to share it after I cleaned off the sandstone and ID'ed it. I believe Bison, quite possibly Latifrons as at least one Latifrons horn core has been found at this site along with many massive bison bones. Heavily mineralized, this piece weighs about 2kg (4.5 lbs) and is about 15cm max width, 18.5 cm long. It retains the process that is usually missing from the river finds I've made. What I find cool is the crystal filled void! Most o

    Fossilized horn?

    So today I found this horn while hiking. The place where I found it -called Castrillo del Val- is known for the great amount of potamides fossils found all over the ground; furthermore, bison priscus lived nearby. The place is pretty close to Atapuerca, a big deposit of homo antecessor. I think it might belong to a bison priscus horn core, I’ll post some pictures and let’s see what this is!

    Bison?

    I was just checking to make sure, I found this in a dredge in Florida a while back (definitely the best condition mammal from the dredge). Is it bison, or some huge llama, or even cow. Thanks!

    Another Silicified Seashell

    I found a Silicified Seashell last month and it turned out to be a relative rare silicified version of a pretty common Oyster from 3-4 myas. It is not like I forget interesting locations to hunt , so we returned there yesterday. Lots and Lots of little shark teeth (100s with about 25% unbroken). These all become gifts to someone. My hunting friends, my family, school kids, Paleo museums, etc. Separating those out left this smaller group of interesting fossils.... On the lower right, that was the Only Meg I found and next to it a nice Mayumbensis from the Mi

    Mammal Tooth ID

    Hi all, I found this tooth that washed out of the Charleston Harbor in South Carolina that is ~3 inches long and ~2 inches wide. I was wondering if someone could help me with an ID on it? Thinking it may be horse, bison, or cow, but those are just guesses so any help would be appreciated!

    An Easter Fossil Hunt

    I usually do not hunt Sundays and never on a Sunday Holiday. However, I usually hunt with Steve and Dave on the Peace River, Dave was returning North soon, so Steve called last night and twisted my arm to go hunting today to a location where we had found lots of larger Tiger and Hemipristis shark teeth 3 or 4 years ago. You can never go home again, but sometimes lightening strikes. None of us found large Tigers and Hemis, The location had been heavily dug since we were there last. For 3 hours the three of us were finding only 6-7 small shark teeth per sieve, which is not particularly pro

    Partial bone identification

    Greetings, I found this bone on property where cattle used to feed and where bison were native to. This was found in the side bank of a washout and roughly 1 ft below surface grade. A friend went to track for it and it snapped upon grabbing it and the other portion is still buried. It is currently frozen so I am unable to dig further into the bank to reveal more of the bone. It appears to be fairly old and the inside is hollowed out. I was wondering if anyone may be able to identify it based on side and shape. Please let me know what your thoughts are.

    Texas Fossils!!!

    Recent finds from Texas! Ammonites from the Goodland limestone, petrified wood and ice age stuff bank gravel of the Brazos river, either Beaumont or Lissie formations, or from a terrace deposit. The rib is mammoth/mastodon, the vertebra and hoof core bison, the antler is likely whitetail deer, and the teeth are horse and bison, with the small one I think a 3-toed horse based on the images I looked up.
  10. Is this a cow, horse, or bison scapula? I live in an area where bison used to roam and know that on the same property, bison skulls and bones have been found. Please let me know your thoughts and reasoning on how it was identified. Thank you!

    toe bone?

    When I picked this up I thought it very reminiscent of a mammoth toe bone. It is covered with what looks like a sandstone crust, the piece is very heavy, not at all like any sandstone I have ever come across. Any ideas? Thanks for any info you may have.

    First Fossil Hunt at the Brazos

    I've had some free time this weekend, so I decided to mix things up and try hunting the Brazos instead of the usual cretaceous formations around Austin and DFW. The Pleistocene period is something I've always been fascinated by (probably due to the Ice Age movies), so the long drive wasn't enough to dissuade me. The weather was just right which made a day by the river all the better. This being my first time at the Brazos, I was a bit unfamiliar with the geography/prime hunting locations. I settled on parking by a bridge and decided to spend my day checking out both sides of the river. Navigat

    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?

    Bison Bovid Conundrum (Needs ID)

    Ok I thought I had started to be able to ID bovine teeth and jaws and then this threw my off. This is from a post on Facebook - found in a cave in Kansas. I have posed here with he user's permission. Why is there a three-lobed molar in the middle of this lower jaw? In the past I had though the m3 for cow/bison was the only three lobed molar. But some searching online is telling me otherwise. Also the m3 here looks two-lobed. Can someone clarify?

    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
  18. 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

    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
