  1. Eastern NC - Bison Tooth ID Assistance

    I found this in a gravel bed at Greens Mill Run (GMR) Yesterday afternoon. I am thinking it's Bison, but would like confirmation and also assistance with which species and possible age. It's fossilized (tinks like a rock when tapped on a metal shovel) so I want to assume it's not modern but I suppose I cannot rule out the possibility of it being colonial? the range/mix of material at GMR might make this difficult - as I found it with shark teeth and whale bone much like everything else - even horse teeth.
  2. Jaw section- could this be bison?

    Found this today in North Texas creek that I know has produced bison skulls in the past. Would love to think this is bison. Have a cow jaw and these teeth are larger. I will leave it to the experts.
  3. Tooth ID?

    Found this today in a creek bed (unsure of age but presumably Pliocene-Pleistocene)....assuming Bison sp. but unsure. Any thoughts?
  4. Pleistocene Sacrum ID

    So I have been going through mountains of Pleistocene material from Iowa and classifying the material by species. I have a lot of Bison material, Deer, Elk, Stag Moose, Sloth, Beaver (Small and Giant), and much more. I did come across one sacrum that I can not classify. Not sure if it is small bison, Cervalces (Stag Moose), or large Elk. I am sure someone here might be able to help me out. I am much better at those pesky marine reptiles and dinos than the modern mammals. Thanks in advance. Seth
  5. Bison and cow teeth

    From the album Naughtistic fossils and rocks

    The tooth on the left is a cow tooth and the one on the right is a bison tooth.
  6. Anyone know what this is?

    Sorry I know nothing about cameras and can't seem to get a small enough MB when a I get a closer shot. Just wondering how many years before a fossil like this can occur?
  7. NE Kansas Bone ID

    Hi all, Could you help identifying this fragment? I know that is a pretty vague question to ask, but it is probably from the Pleistocene, but I don't think it is fully mineralized yet. This was found near Fort Riley, Kansas by the Republican River. Any help would be appreciated...Thanks! Cole
  8. Bison or cow?

    Hi guys, I found these earlier today on a creek bed in NE Kansas. I think it's a somewhat old bison upper jaw ( part of it broke)...but it could be an old cow as well. There was also another interesting thing I found, in not sure what it is. I'll try upload more pics later.
  9. NE Kansas riverside fossil

    I was walking a Northeast Kansas sandbar today and found these with several other pieces. I think these might be from the ice age or more rencent, perhaps part of an old bison skeleton. I could use some help here, I'll upload more pictures. The specimen is about 3 inches long, 1 inch tall and 1 inch thick.
  10. Help with fragments

    So I was on a sandbar on the republican river today and found these, along with several others. I think they may be bison bones, possibly ice age, (this is in NE Kansas) but could you guys help out? Thanks. I will upload more pictures soon. PS each piece is about 3 inches on the long lost side and around 1 inch wide (the first one is about 3/4 inches thick), and I haven't cleaned them yet
  11. Bison in Iowa

    Does anyone know when Bison died out in Iowa? I myself have a single vertebrae and the front lower left half of a buffalo jaw with 2 teeth in it. I think it must be any wear from 500-to a couple thousand years as it is dark brown in color. 16 - 1.webp
  12. Bison bone?

    Is this a bison phalanx? I think so. I found it in the peace river. Thanks for any info.
  13. Bison vert

    I found a remarkably well preserved bison vert in the peace river. At first I thought it was a modern bone before a positive ID. It was a stumper. Thing is, it is pretty light and did not seem to be a fossil. Question is, when did bison last roam Fl. Thanks for any input. Sorry for the other bones in pic.
  14. Deer Ankle Bone

    I found these at the beach of NC. I am assuming they are deer ankle bones. Not the best specimens, but I'll take it Maybe bison, maybe equine? Thanks as always
  15. Possible bison?

    Pull this guy out of a creek this morning in Frisco, Texas. I think bison - anyone know? Also, does anyone know how to date? Apparently this guy didn't get the memo on how to brush his teeth. Ha!
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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!
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
