  1. Big mammal vert from North Sea

    Hi everyone! I received this vert from the Natuurhistorisch Museum Rotterdam. It was in a big box with many other fossils fished from the North Sea (Pleistocene). The size of the vert makes me think of rhino or bison, even possibly mammoth. I asked already on Fossiel.net and they said it could be a chest vert from a bovid or a horse. But no definitive answer came up... What do you all think? Any help appreciated, Max
  2. Horse or Bison tooth?

    Hello: This was found on the beach in North Carolina. I can't remember if I was told if this was a small horse tooth or a bison tooth. Any help is always greatly appreciated. Thank you, David
  3. Bone ID

    Hello there, I found these two after a good rain protruding from the bank along the same creek in Travis county. They are both around 9" long and one appears to be older than the other. Thanks for the help
  4. Bison Astragalus?

    Hello all, This specimen was found in a creek that cuts through Miocene through Pleistocene fossiliferous exposures. Being found in a creek, I cannot rule out this being a modern critter (unless it is indeed bison of course). I know that this specimen is an astragalus, and I think it is from one of the right legs. I see resemblance with bison astragali, but I don't know. Thanks for the help Whose astragalus?? Miocene to Pleistocene Mississippi
  5. I found this and several other bones buried about 3.5 feet deep in a dry wash in SE Montana. It is in good shape, does not look like a fossil, but there was a fossil excavation going on nearby. Can someone help me ID and age it? I am thinking Bison, my family says angus beef.
  6. Could this be a bison hoof???

    Found in the Peace River. Broadest part measures 3 1/2". Found some other large pieces but also found a lot of LARGE (Big Boy) turtle pieces. Will post in another post. Thanks. SO GLAD to be back in the river. Cold but definitely doable in swimsuit - and I am a Floridian that walks around with a jacket at 70 degrees!
  7. Steppe Bison Horn

    I recently had my brother-in-law build a display case for my bison horn. I had to move/remove a lot of fossils from the shelf to make room but it seems to display rather well.
  8. This item was found on Kiptopeke beach, on the southern tip of the Eastern Shore of Virginia. I collect skulls (not fossils), so was pretty sure this is an herbivore tooth, and bigger than a horse. It is heavy, like a stone. From poking around some, my guess at this stage would be a bison molar. Some kind of large, extinct bison, I'd much appreciate any discussion, as this is the first fossil of note that I've ever found.

    From the album Denton County, TX

  13. It was an unusual hunt today. I found 2 bison horn cores 30 feet apart. I've only found 4 or 5 in hundreds of hours of hunting and then found these within 5 minutes. That's the way it goes
  14. Bison tooth?

    Found this tooth today in northern Brown County in Nebraska. Fully mineralized along a steam bank that was eroded by heavy rains this summer. Found in a gravel layer about 8 feet below ground level

  16. huge horn core

    I think this is a bison horn core. I found it on the Brazos River. It seems way bigger than images found on line. The base has a 15 inch circumference and the length is about 17 inches. So, which bison is this from?
  17. Buffalo/Bison/Cow jawbone with teeth?

    Found these in Sherman Texas in the lowest part of a formation at the bottom of a creek. In this same formation, we were pulling out small goblin shark teeth and ptychodus teeth. Trying to ID what exactly these are? Everything is preserved well, but the bone portion is super brittle. My first instinct was cow, but where we pulled it out of the formation gave me pause (and I looked up pictures of buffalo/bison, and it looks similar). Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  18. Bison priscus calcaneus

    The left heel bone (calcaenus) of a steppe bison.
  19. Mammal tooth ?

    I found this 4 cm long tooth on a beach in Brouwersdam "near" Rotterdam (North sea). After some research i think it could be a bison tooth (Bison priscus (?)) ... Hope somebody can help ... thanks
  20. Bison tooth

    From the album Crystal Beach Texas

  21. Crystal Beach Texas

    I'm on a family beach vacation so of course I'm looking for fossils on the beach. I didn't find any shark teeth but I did find a heavy fossilized bison tooth and plenty of shells today.
  22. Bison priscus humerus

    From the album Ice Age Europe

    Distal end of the sinister humerus from a Bison priscus (Steppe Bison). From the Mannheim Formation, Middle Würm Interstadial, 58,000-26,000yo. Germany.
  23. Last hunt of the year this morning in my "backyard." Found a nice variety. Started with a few small mosasaur vertebrae, then found a broken Native American artifact, a ptychodus shark tooth, a large shark vertebra and my favorite of the day- a nice bison horn. Good way to end the year. Have a great New Years everybody!
  24. A mooooving picture

    Fabulous find this site AND this tooth in a present day Minnesota cow pasture on a receded and much eroded creek bank\bed. Love these unexpected treasures but am clueless as to possible identity or age. It's about an inch high and wide. Pics are taken on only option I have, a tablet so I apologize for quality but sure appreciate any thoughts or opinions.
  25. Texas Creekbed Finds

    Hi all, New to the forum. I'm a contemporary artist with a research based interest in Archaeology, fossils, geology, and the sort. Thought I'd introduce myself with a couple of recent finds I found pretty exciting. What really got my attention was this fossilized Bison tooth. I'm not sure how old, but judging from the petrification I'd say it's very old. There's also signs of a stylid, so I'm thinking M2 or M3 Bison tooth. I also cracked open a stone slab and found the faint plant impressions. I thought those were pretty beautiful. On the top left there's what appears to be a worked stone, possibly involved in arrow head making? Nice too meet you guys. L
