    Camel Canine?

    I am looking for help identifying this fossil I found in the Peace River in Florida. Our guide thought it might be an alligator claw core (he was uncertain) but the shape or curve of it just isn’t right. The best I could find online is a camel canine. There is enamel and it looks like the tip broke off. What I am assuming is the root is very “wavy” and textured.

    Dire wolf tooth?

    Got this one in the creek Sunday, from size I'm thinking (hoping) that it's dire wolf. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Wood in a river

    Usually, I go with 2 other fossil hunters. One was sick , so just the two today. well, just 2 humans. We have a gator at this location, not unusual on the Peace. I (and most people) tend to over estimate the size of gators, but he/she is big enough to cause concern. I normally take an 8 foot surveyors pole to the river, so that I can stake out my kayak where ever I dig. It has a steel point and could be used for other purposes. On this day, I also chose to strap a 6 inch titanium dive knife to my right leg. Make me feel better, like I'm prepared for eventualities. Today we arrived at 7:

    Canine tooth ID

    Hello, Yesterday I came across this tooth on a beach local to me in south west Scotland. I first thought seal but have discovered it’s too large and can’t think what else is in the waters around Scotland that could fit a canine tooth so large. Any help is appreciated.

    Stroll in the Sunshine

    I went out hunting yesterday. It seems to me that Florida is in a drought and that water level are so low that they preclude the use of kayaks. So I decided to walk into the backwoods of Florida... pack as light as possible and carry a cellphone and lots of water. Walking takes up digging time and my results were few. A couple of small makos, 2 horse teeth, 2 gator teeth, a tapir cap, fish skull cap, a chunk of gator/tapir jaw with alveoli but no teeth, and a handful of small shark teeth. Two items encouraged me to post today. On my walk, I happened to spot a paw print. I

    ID Help Peace River FL

    Back out Tuesday for a nice day on the Peace River. Found the river running a little faster and deeper than the previous week. It was also very cloudy and had a greenish look to it. I went to a spot I had tried last year on my last visit for the season, when the river was running so fast it was sweeping just about everything right off the shovel as I tried to bring it up. Today was better and I found plenty of nice shark teeth (no megs), an armadillo scute, set of camelid teeth, gator teeth, a very small phalange, and the partial tooth I am asking for help with here. When I first pulled it f

    What is this tooth

    My buddy found this tooth diving in venice beach. I’m trying to help him out to figure out what it is. I was thinking either dire wolf or jaguar but the enamel part of the tooth looks very long and possibly worn down. And I’m just confused. Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Bear or Dire Wolf canine?

    So I came across this canine on the internet. And in the comments it was being debated by the seller as a Dire Wolf canine, but multiple reactions said it's a bear canine. So I thought it might be interesting to post it here and know what it actually is. Florida find, 2'28 inch

    Can anyone identify this jaw?

    I found this lower right jaw bone exposed on the bed of a creek in north central florida. It appears to be from an extinct canine species, but I am unsure and figured someone on here probably has more knowledge than I do on what it could be. Measurements are 7 cm in height at the tallest point, almost 15 cm in length, and 1 cm in thickness. There is one molar missing, and the incisors at the front are missing as well. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  10. So found this today - my immediate thought was canine. Originally thought no enamel - but I brushed it, with a tooth brush - and it’s got white enamel. So… any help is appreciated! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker After brushing:

    Modern or fossil cat canine?

    This is described as a feline canine from the Pleistocene of Africa, 7cm long. Does that seem reasonable or does the fossil seem modern? And if it's a fossil, can anyone identify what animal it came from? Thanks.

    Payne Creek Canine ID

    Just found this canine - really bad at IDing canines, and it’s decently worn. My only guess is Tapir? It’s about 30-35mm by the looks of it.

    Bone Valley canine id

    Visited the Bone Valley fossil farm in Bowling Green Florida and besides finding a bunch of absolutely beautiful sharks teeth pulled this pretty much pristine mammal canine tooth out of the matrix. It is approximately 7.9cm in length. Have my ideas on the id but would like to hear from the experts - many thanks ! Sorry about the tape measure - it's all I have available at the moment

    Summer travels

    I went on a fossil hunting trip a few weeks ago but have not had the time to post it until now. It was a very successful trip, I got my first complete tapir teeth some nice deer teeth,and a few other strange fossils. Any ID help is appreciated. sorry about the picture quality, my camera is not the best.1. bobcat, maybe raccoon tooth, it looks predatory, but it's pretty small.2. other strange tooth and fragment that appears to be from a similar animal.3. predator, maybe worn Coyote, not much of an enamel pattern. 4. Rodent, any chance of a specific species?5. Weird thing that appears to ha

    Predator tooth?

    I found this tooth around what I think was one of my first post on the forum (not very long ago). When I found it I had not tried identifying many predator teeth and did not realize how common the shape was and concluded it was dire wolf, but now I believe that this is not true due to size and rarity of these teeth. I believe it is probably something smaller, maybe feline, raccoon, or something of that sort, any help?

    A Canine or Tusk

    One of the enjoyable things of this hobby is friends sending me photos of their finds. Usually I try to post my own fossils, because I have them in hand and take additional photos and measure, etc etc. This one arrived today, a land find from a pit in Bone Valley.. I asked for additional photos and measurements, but felt I could show you the photo I have and request input. To me, it looks to be 3-4 inches and has some distinctive markings. I have a guess, but will wait on yours.. Jack

    Dredge IDs

    Today we took a trip down to a dredge and had probably our second best trip, we came out with quite a few fossils that we could not identify, I was wondering if anyone could help? Ones a vert from a large fish, probably a drum, but I was wondering if someone could clarify that. Another is a bone that looks nearly complete, probably from a whale, but I am not certain and it looks distinct, and I was hoping someone would know the specifics. Also we got a price of what I am pretty sure is turtle plastron and a gator vert. And the best find was some sort of canine. I'm not sure what it is, I do no

    Tooth fossil in sandstone?

    Found in eastern AZ. Tooth in sedimentary sandstone? Any input appreciated. First and second pics look like top of tooth and 3rd & 4th pics are other side and look like bottom part ir fang tips? Thanks

    Second Skull ID Please

    This is the second of the two skull I cant ID. I am leaning toward canine of some sort. maybe? I assume this one is also from China considering the matrix still attached looks the same as the larger skull in my other topic. Any help is appreciated.

    White canine tooth

    When I saw the white color I immediately thought it was modern, but an isurus retroflexus tooth found nearby was close to the same color.

    Blancan fossils

    I know of a Blancan site where Blancan fauna represent more than 80 % of the finds. The rest of the finds seem to be early Equus. You never know what you might find. I went there recently with a good friend after the deep water levels had subsided. Some of these fossils he found and some are my finds. To be successful in identifying fossils, it is important to understand the scientific age of the fossil you find in the same location. There are no Megs at this site and layer, not even fragments. The consensus seems to be that Megs went extinct 3-4 MYAs. There is some mixture, but unl

    Wyoming Molar and Canine

    Stumbled across these fossils on a hillside in the Badlands of the bighorn basin Wyoming I have looked at fossil records for identification of these teeth nothing I have come across so far has been comparable to this size besides ancient rhinoceros any information on this would be helpful all teeth were found together in a washout ditch only inches from one another
  23. Hello everyone, I got offered with this "fossil" from Java. The Selle says it's a carnivore canine. But I don't even think it's a fossil but a strange shaped rock, or if it's a fossil it's made of two pieces. What do you think of it?

    Mailbox Canine - STH

    When I first saw this tooth, I was thinking Allodesmus, maybe seal. But then I noted the hollow root. Certainly not croc/gator, so whale ? Do Dolphins have hollow roots? The ones I have found have closed roots. If whale or dolphin, which one? Tooth is about 2.6 inches long. Usual suspects: @Boesse, @ynot @siteseer Comments on open versus closed roots in marine mammals appreciated.
