    3 Toed Horse Tooth--Nannipus?

    Weather was cold and windy yesterday, but sunny and calmer down on the Brazos River in southeast Texas. Sandy gravel matrix. I always hate to get my hopes up too early in the game, but I think I may have found my first 3 toed horse tooth. I looked at Hulbert's Fossil Vertebrates of Florida book. Photograph D on pg. 292 is a right m1 or m2 from nannippus aztecus. It appears pretty similar, but I'm not sure about size. Nannippus Aztecus would have been in Texas from late Miocene to Pliocene, so region would fit. And I think @garyc has found a nannippus on the Brazos befo

    Some teeth in jaw

    Fighting a sinus infection but made it out to the river today for a brief look. Southeast Texas gravel bar. Mostly Pleistocene, but older fossils are theoretically possible from exposures up river. Didn't find much since the river is up, but my most interesting find was this jaw fragment with some teeth intact. Since the biting surfaces are so worn, I'm having trouble with an ID. Is it possible to ID this based on tooth size/shape/location in the jaw? Or to at least narrow it down more so I can refine what type of teeth I should be comparing it to? Thank

    Giant Sloth Phalanx?

    Since the river has been going down, I've been wanting to go out for a long while to check the newly exposed gravel. Finally got a chance and felt up to it a little while before dark yesterday and found a few things. Sandy gravel matrix with Pleistocene and possible Miocene in southeast Texas. I'm thinking this is a medial phalanx from a giant Sloth. Can anyone confirm?

    Horned skull fossil--Goat? Muskox?

    Found a mineralized skull fragment with broken horn bases in the sandy riverbed of the Brazos River in southeast Texas. Mostly pleistocene fossils here. The horns seem fairly close-set, which I wouldn't expect with bison. But they're fairly wide and thick, so I was leaning away from things like deer or antelope. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks. --Brandy
  5. Had a great day of fossil hunting this weekend with @Lorne Ledger. Got everything washed up, and now it's time to try to identify! I found this smaller, fairly complete bone in a gravel bar on the Brazos River. Mostly Pleistocene fossils here. It's confusing to me because one face reminds me of a deer astragalus, but a few other features don't quite seem to match. Since it seems to have several attachment points I considered it might also be a phalanx from something. Any ideas would be welcome to point me in the right direction. Thanks,

    Large Bone End

    Had a good trip down to the Brazos River this weekend. Found several pleistocene things. I've been identifying things, and I'm going to try to post them in a trip post later this week. But very unsure about this one. Right now I don't even have a good guess.
  7. So my husband found this heavily mineralized bone while we were hunting the Brazos River in southeast Texas with @Lorne Ledger. Mostly Pleistocene age material in the area. It was too dirty to identify then. I've cleaned it up, and I've been struggling to ID it. It has a large, thick base but dramatically thins toward the outside (similar to how a scapula would, but I'm not sure it's the right shape for one.) So far my best guess has been a partial ilium to a large quadraped since there aren't many bones that flatten out like a fan in that way. I've inclu

    Very Large Metapodial?

    Hi guys. I found this large and pretty complete bone in a sandy gravel bar, Brazos River, Southeast Texas. Mostly Pleistocene here with less common Miocene-Pliocene. The size and odd shape made me lean toward proboscidean metapodial, but I looked in my Olsen book and had a hard time figuring out a match. Maybe mastodon astragalus? Or am I barking up the wrong tree entirely? Not much I can think of that would be asymmetrical and this robust. @JohnJ @garyc @darrow @Lorne Ledger @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker

    Another small jaw

    Small jaw found in Brazos riverbed, Southeast Texas. Looks consistent with the other Pleistocene fossils I've found in the area. Since everyone was able to help with the other jaw, I figured I'd give this one a shot. Thanks for any help!

    Bison astragalus?

    Went hunting on our place along the Brazos river in Chappell Hill, Texas yesterday. Wanted to see if someone could help Id this bone… I’m thinking bison astragalus but not sure. Also threw in picts. of a couple of points (not fossils) we found for fun… Thanks

    Little Hoof Core?

    I checked the Brazos River bed yesterday for a short time and came across a lot of chunkosaurus, but I'm pretty sure this piece could be a small hoof core. If so, I'm not sure which species it may be. I felt like it was too rounded for deer but too small for equus. There is mostly Pleistocene in this gravel bed, but Miocene/Pliocene is possible due to older formation outcroppings up river. To me, this looks similar to a small hoof core that @garyc found and posted in an older thread that was ID'd as a possible miocene horse. But I'm always learning. Thank

    Bone with Foramen

    So when I first dug this up out of the sand, I thought it was probably modern due to the color, and it felt pretty light and a little more brittle than my normal finds. But there is mostly Pleistocene material here and sometimes it can be hard to tell. I put a lighter under it and it had no reaction. And when I cleaned it up, I realized that a hole runs through it. I've read a lot of past posts by @Harry Pristis describing foramen, and I've seen examples in his collections where he discusses the differences between which animals have which types of foramen, but I'm still a litt

    Axis Vertebra--Bison?

    Found a large vertebra in the Brazos riverbed where mostly Pleistocene fossils are found. I believe it's a C2 axis vertebra. Due to the size, I was thinking it could be bison. Is that correct, or could it be another large mammal? Thanks, Brandy

    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
  15. Brandy Cole


    Found this in Brazos River, Texas near Brookshire in sandy gravel matrix. Pleistocene era. It's pretty small. But could this be a glyptodont osteoderm? It doesn't look like the turtle/tortoise pieces I normally find. The seams are very pronounced, and the grain on broken places is very fine and not as spongy as the turtle pieces.

    Chunk Of Bone?

    I found this in the brazos river in SE texas. I'm not sure what y'all will make of it. I was going to give it to an 11yr old nephew of mine for his birthday. It is at least a chunk of bone right? mammoth jaw or skull fragment maybe?
