Puma concolor Calcaneum
CDiggs posted a topic in Member CollectionsI was asked if I would create a post to detail how I arrived at an ID for the Calcaneum I recently posted for consideration as fossil of the month (Feb, 2023). To start, immediately below are some photos of the Calcaneum in question. It's from the Beaumont Formation of Fort Bend County, TX, so it's likely Pleistocene in age. To start with I initially compared this Calcaneum to another in my collection from the same formation I'd previously identified as Cervid (likely Odocoileus) that seemed to be a similar size, but I was immediately struck by how different they looked excluding si
Calcaneus ID- Nebraska
OssifiedConscript posted a topic in Fossil IDHello all. First of many IDs I will be requesting of the fossils I have found in the Verdigris Creek of Northeastern Nebraska. This creek runs through the Valentine Formation which is roughly dated to 15 million years old, but is also known to cut through Pleistocene exposures. This bone I found has almost certainly been gnawed on- it matched up to the size of one of the larger stem hipparions found around here, but I am still unsure whether it could possibly be camelid or anything else. Let me know your thoughts!! Thank you.
Shellseeker posted a topic in Fossil ID@Harry Pristis Harry, I need your help on an ID and discussion of Florida Calcanea. These are great photos Harry, but I have found one that does not quite fit. It is shorter and wider than the examples. I think that the one I have found here may be Palaeolama mirifica and the camel calcaneum in your photos may be Hemiauchenia macrocephala. What do you think? As always, thanks for your expertise. Jack
GPayton posted a topic in Fossil IDFound on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston. I know this is the distal end of a calcaneum, but I can't figure out whether it's horse, bison, or even bear - it seems to both match and not match pictures I'm finding online. Any help is appreciated.
Found on northern Spain Beach
richardarnold posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this bone while walking a beach in northern Spain back in January. It is about 5" (12.5 CM) long. The smaller end is somewhat rounded off but it doesn't look broken. In other words, I don't think the bone was much longer than it is now. Does anyone have any idea what it is? I have been told it might be a calcaneum from an ice age artiodactyl? Agree? Thank you in advance for your help. Rich
White River Calcaneum Help
Peat Burns posted a topic in Fossil IDHello! I was wondering if anyone might recognize this calcaneum from the White River Group of Nebraska. It is much larger than an oreodont. I have placed it next to oreodont calcanea for comparison. an articulated portion of the left foot of an oreodont is on top, middle is a single oreodont calcaneum, bottom is the unidentified calcaneum. (more pics to follow) An articulated portion of the left foot of an oreodont is on top, middle is a single oreodont calcaneum (right foot), bottom is the unidentified calcaneum (right foot). (m
garyc posted a topic in Fossil IDHey mammal experts! I found this calcaneum today on the Brazos River, pleistocene gravel. I'm leaning toward carnivore on this one, possibly big cat or dog? Thanks!

Antelope metapodial and calcaneum from Late Pleistocene
D.N.FossilmanLithuania posted a topic in Fossil IDDear Guys, I have two possible bones of antelopes, they are very small to ungulates. I found these two bones in the Late Pleistocene sand layers of Varena town, South Lithuania. The calcaneum is only 4 cm length, metapodial- 10,5 cm length. The confirmation of these fossils would be very helpful to my further articles. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
