    Tusk Identification

    Recently my buddy @garyc got me into fossil hunting and I found this at the river (Brazos River) this week. If anyone could help me identify it I would appreciate it.

    Tooth identification

    I was out on the Brazos river today and I’m new to fossil hunting I was wondering if anyone could help me identify this tooth?
  3. I found this today out on the brazos river and I’m not sure what it is exactly. When I first picked it up my thought was mammoth or mastodon skull just from pictures I have seen. Can anyone help me identify this?

    Some help with a vertebra

    I’m hoping this vertebra is in good enough condition to identify. I am clueless when it comes to verts. It seems a little big for deer, but smaller than bison or horse. Thanks for looking.

    Newbie luck??

    I may have created a monster. I took the son of a friend fossil hunting on the Brazos River in SE Texas a couple of days ago. He’s about to be a senior in high school and has never been fossil hunting. He went out by himself today and found something that has stumped me. He texted me pics and my immediate thought was Mammoth tooth in bone. I decided to drive to where he was since it wasn’t really out of my way home. Even in person I can’t decide if this is an unerupted juvenile mammoth tooth in jaw bone or something entirely different. I see potential mammoth tooth plates, but no enamel. It

    Fossil ID

    Hello-Can anyone identify this bone? Found along the Brazos river, It measures about 14" long x 8" at widest point and 4" wide at smallest point. It weighs about 7.8 pounds. Thanks!

    Humerus ID

    I know the ends are quite worn, but is there any way to determine what animal this is from? My gut says hog, but Before I trash it I want to be sure it’s not something like tortoise.
  8. Not sure if the identification section is the right place to post this because I know it is a Pleistocene Horse tooth from the Brazos river in southeast Texas. However I’m wondering if this is a pathological tooth or a cavity. I’ve found well over 100 horse teeth and none of them have this feature. I appreciate any insights

    Pet wood or partial tooth?

    I have looked under magnification but can't find any wood cell structure so this one is throwing me off but still leaning toward wood. Under magnification I did find hairline striations but those can also be found in some enamel. This piece is also polished looking but it is as it was found could it be a tooth fragment?.

    few items for identification...

    found a few interesting things need identifying.... found in gravel from the Brazos river east of Houston Texas. First is a possible toe bone?, Bone fragment. second is a tooth. Possible Bison but I think it looks more equine??. could be wrong though. third is a possible small coprolite? passes the tacky test and when magnifies looking at a small chip in it there are orange and black colors inside can get pics if needed.
  11. Hi again! I found this today in Bryan Texas on the Brazos River in the area of the whiskey bridge. Is it the fossil of a crab claw? I wonder if more of it is inside? *this is the only picture I have at the moment, we’re driving home now and it’s in the back of our truck.*
  12. This was found on the Brazos river in southeast Texas. It almost looks like a eroded shell material, but I cannot make out at all what it is. Could this be a coprolite? I have never found one before, so I have no idea what a coprolite would look like in this area.

    Brazos River fossil

    Found this weekend, originally I thought was bone but I cannot explain the pin holes on the side. Insect holes?

    More Gravel pile finds from the Brazos

    any ideas? the first looks like a bone fragment second is ??....
  15. hndmarshall

    And yet another oddity.....

    this one is really odd it is almost plant like in texture when viewed under microscope (pics included) the texture follows the curves of the fossil looking almost like hair under the microscope...sorry only way I could describe it .... It has a dark area along with what look like leafy or hairy parts on it.
  16. hndmarshall

    More odd things from the Gravel pile.

    On first inspection I thought it was just some sort of man made goop but it is fossilized and on the side looks a little like some sort of bryozoan I had seen pics of online..... so goop or bryozoan?
  17. hndmarshall

    Think I found a little critter!

    Looks like a little Octopus but may be wishful thinking what do you think? ... tried to get good pics. found in gravel pile from Brazos river here in Texas west of Houston.

    fossil or modern bone?

    is this a fossilized bone? it appears to be but am on the fence. Found in gravel from the Brazos river here just west of Houston Texas.

    Strange Petrified Wood?

    This is a weird find as I have not found petrified wood like it before if that is what it is. The cell structure in the broken area is colorful and detailed.

    Large bone chunk

    I’m hoping someone can recognize what this chunk of bone might be from. It must be something large like Proboscidean or sloth. The sutures are making me think it’s a chunk of skull. The concave side might be an alveolus for tusk?

    Bone fragment

    Here’s a chunk of crocogator I found on the Brazos River in SE Texas. It doesn’t look like the typical osteoderms that are found . I’m not sure if there’s enough here to identify a specific bone…

    Artiodactyl jaw

    Despite the 100 plus degree temps, the low level of the Brazos River drew me from comfortable air conditioning. I hit a stretch of the river that I frequent and know that it’s been picked over, but it’s almost a foot lower than my last visit so I hoped there would be more to find. I didn’t come home with the haul I’d hoped for, but I was not disappointed either. The find of the day was this partial mandible. When I initially picked it up I was thinking bison. After getting home and cleaning it up a bit and comparing to another bison jaw I have I’m now leaning toward camelid. I also think that

    Mammal bone

    I’m at a loss on this large bone fragment. I found it on the Brazos River in SE Texas, Pleistocene. It seems too thick for a rib…. The solid bone at the broken end is about 1/2 inch thick. At 10 inches long and broken, it could be a limb bone???
  24. Hi Fossil Forum! I'm hoping for a little help in identifying a fossil I found recently in the Brazos River in Fort Bend County TX. I've tentatively identified it as Pleistocene in age (it's pretty well mineralized) and most likely belonging to a vertebrate mammal but have been rather stumped beyond that. I was initially thinking it could be part of a scapula but I'm now fairly sure its not. At one point I compared it to a skeletal mount of a Pleistocene camel at a local Natural Science museum and was momentarily convinced it was part of the ilium with part of the acetabulum damaged

    Unknown Humerus

    I found this distal end of a mammalian humerus several weeks ago on the Brazos River southwest of Houston. After hours of searching, it doesn't seem to exactly match any of the common suspects: deer, camel, horse, or bison. Deer or camel is more likely than horse or bison, as the bone is relatively slender and the end of it isn't as bulky as either of those animals. It is possible that I have incorrectly ruled out deer and camels as the trochlea and capitulum on the end are very worn down. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm more than willing to hear them. Thanks!
