  1. Hi everyone! I acquired this jaw a few months ago and IDed it as coming from a large Canid. My question is can it be identified further and is there any funny business. Specifically with the Canine which is a different color than the other teeth. I tested the bone in multiple places so I know it's authentic, I'm just wondering if the Canine was found individually and inserted. The placement of a little bit of putty in the socket with the canine doesn't help my suspicions. As for the ID I figure Grey Wolf is the most likely but I'm not to experienced with canid material
  2. So I was recently looking at Canid detention cause of the dire wolf tooth I found this past weekend - and stumbled across pictures of upper Dire Wolf M2s, and thought they looked familiar. A while ago, back in August, I found this tooth that I sent to Hulbert for an ID. He said it was an Otter M1. However, while it looks quite similar to an Otter M1, it also seems to match a Dire Wolf M2, possibly even more closely. So first here’s the tooth - it’s 14.2mm long: The size fits both Enhydritherium terraenovae (Which is the Otter) M1s: An
  3. Hi all, I found this fossilized toe bone (measures just under 1.5 inches) that washed out of the Charleston Harbor in Charleston, South Carolina. I got one ID on it. His initial thoughts were it was from a carnivore and he narrowed that down to a Canid or a Bear. He looked at it more and determined it to be a Canid and most likely Dire Wolf. I wanted to run it past any of the mammal experts here to get an opinion. As an avid shark tooth hunter, this is outside of anything I know. I will say Ice Age fossils, outside of horse teeth, are way less common for me here in the Lowcountry o

    Jaw bone id bear or wolf ?

    Found and preserved with clear coat. Don’t find many jaw bones where I explore. Any ideas ? A lot of bison bones found in same area. Front part of jaw is gone.

    Southern California - Mammal

    I have here fossils from Southern California. There's no other info on them. It was an impulse buy, and they weren't a tonne of money. They looked canid to me, but I'm not sure what they are. If anyone knows, I'd appreciate the advice. Largest is around 1 1/2" Thank you, Bellamy

    Canid jaw

    I found this jaw on the Brazos River a couple of years ago and figured that it is just from a modern dog. Just thought I would try to get a confirmation. I would hate to discount the idea that it is something more interesting like Pleistocene coyote or wolf. It is actually pretty well mineralized. The cancellous bone is hard and not spongy like other modern bones that I find. The carnassial measures 22.2mm x 11.9mm

    Florida carnivore tooth

    Hi all, Today I’ve got a carnivore canine from Florida that I bought about a month ago, I bought it as dire wolf, but I find that very hard to believe. I’ve got my suspicions but I wanted too ask your opinions. It is about 1 7/16” long, but would likely be in the two inch range if complete. Included is an estimated size. @PrehistoricFlorida @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Bone Daddy @digit. TIA

    Borophagus Carnassial

    Just got back from the fossil fair at Sanford Civic Center in central Florida, had a great time and brought back some great specimens. There's quite a variety here, but I have quite specific geographic/geological data for each piece, so I'm excited for some opinions. After some careful deliberation, I've decided to make separate posts for each specimen, as I want to thoroughly inspect each piece rather than half-haphazardly glance over all of them. The tag with this fossil reads exactly: "Osteoborus cyonoides Late Miocene- "Hemphillian Ogallala Group Hemphill Co. Texas 'Coffee Ranch Fauna'" Ap
  9. Can anyone help me ID this tiny tooth found in the Peace River near Arcadia, Florida?

    Canid Tooth

    I found this tooth while looking for fossil crabs in Galveston this week. It is 5/8’’ across. Looks to be from a canid of some sort but not sure what. Looks large for a coyote.
  11. Found this partial tooth a few years ago in some Holo-Pleistocene marine sediments on Oahu, Hawaii. There is also the chance that it is more recent, as there had been some dredging in the area, though I haven't seen any evidence at this location. Approximately half of this tooth is missing. What remains is half of the crown and one root lobe. It is 17 mm in maximum dimension. My guess is carnassial. Seal? Canid? Appreciate any and all input.

    Wanted to Confirm this ID

    Hi all! I found this jaw section in Wyoming's White River fm. last year and was told it was likely from a dog (hesperocyon potentially). I wanted to confirm it with some of the people on the forum as there's not a lot left on it aside from part of a tooth, hopefully someone can affirm my hope that this piece actually belongs to a canid.
  13. Just got back from the Orlando Fossil Fair 2018, I bought some nice fossils but many were not identified and I want to confirm ID's for ones that were. There's a lot of fossils so I'll label each one with information and my own opinon on them. All the fossils shown are allegedly carnivores and found in the Suwannee River in Florida (excluding two of them). The furthest on the left will be #1, and the furthest on the right will be #4. I'm not convinced that 1 is a carnivore but besides that I don't have any hypothesis on what the others could be.

    Canid vertebrae?

    Yesterday I was walking through Pliocene sediments in Spain when I found this vertebrae. I'm not pretty sure if it is a cervical vertebrae from a canid/felid or if it is any other better guess. Thanks for your help!
  15. I just acquired this, and was wondering the species and or common name for the animal that it belonged to. It is a partial maxilla with 3 teeth... The bone is very solid, feels fossilized, and goes tic-tic-tic against metal... Not thunk-thunk-thunk as a modern bone would. This item was stated to have been from the Pleistocene of Chile... Thank you. -Bill H. P.S. - I will post more pictures in the next two comments...
