    Small toe bone

    Life is good. I go out tomorrow to the Peace River. I was also there Monday.. There were a few nice finds. I found 1/2 of a carnassial, maybe dire wolf. Seems like I found a mostly whole one in early February. Here is an interesting toe bone. Back 10 years ago , I found a Toe bone, identified as Jaguar 39 mm Medial phalanx by TFF experts. Note the recess to accomodate a retractable claw in the left of the 1st photo.. Then Monday, another toe bone, only 25.5 mm in the sieve. BIG smile. I think once again it is a Medial phalanx. So, is it a Feline M

    Identification, mammal teeth

    Hello ! For my first post I want to show you some mammal teeth. I don't have a lot of informations about them, probably from North Africa. I don't know their age but all are mineralized so not that recent. I can add the sizes if it's very necessary. Some of them are very characteristics so I hope that an ID is possible. There are I think Rhinocerotidae, maybe Camelidae and others... I'm not good with mammal, all the infos are welcome ! Thanks for your help !

    Big cat distal radius?

    I found this radius a while back in the Brazos river in SE Texas. This piece is about 6.5 inch long. It looks much like cat radii I see online but I'm looking for other thoughts. @Shellseeker @Lorne Ledger @Harry Pristis @garyc
  7. Without being able to get hands on with a light or up close inspection - does anyone see any red flags here? Seems legit to me - but it’s a potential big purchase so I wanted to hear some thoughts. Always dreamed of picking up a saber skull one day. ~35cm in length. thanks so much for any input
  8. I know to be skeptical of anything coming from China/Asia, but what are your thoughts on this partial skull. Thanks in advance

    Indiana Mammal Tooth

    I found this tooth in my backyard creek along with several deer teeth and fossil bone fragments. This tooth was the odd one out and I just think it's not a deer.
  11. Hello every one, does anyone can help me identifying this vert? It seems a thoracic vert, but I can't identify the animal, it was fished in the north sea so it's from pleistocene sediments. Maybe it's from a big cat? (that would be a Dream ahaha)

    Smilodon tooth ID help

    This is the tooth I mentioned in last email. Has serrated edges on side and back 11” long.... I know if it’s real it’s very rare as I have researched a lot and have a good idea what it came from if it’s real but I haven’t got a definitive answer.

    A possible cat claw?

    Hi guys! I have something new here and it's very interesting, i think i found a cat claw. You already know that i found in my garden many stuff from Neolithic Vinca culture, such as figurines, pottery, stones tools, microliths and animal bones and teeth as well. So again, i found some cool bones as this claw, but i'm unsure if it belongs to some bigger carnivorous mammal. I compared it with Felis silvestris claw core but it's bigger. I don't know much about carnivorous mammals from Neolithic period but i think that they are the same as today like wolves, bears, lynx, jackals ... I

    Mystery Jaw

    So I have a new mystery. I found this jawbone in miocene gravel. I found mastodon enamel right next to this. I believe this jaw to either be a cat of some kind or raccoon. It shows signs of being both fossilized and not. It's hard a little heavy and sounds like stone when hit against other stone objects, with a slightly less hard tink sound than that of my sharks teeth but it still sounds like stone. The teeth are still white though, however the two smaller teeth have hard sediment still attached to them and the larger tooth has similar sediment stuck in the part of the tooth that is missing.

    Fossil Mammal Skull ID

    Hi, I recently purchased this fossil on everyone's favorite auction site. The seller didn't know where it was found or of its provenance. I was thinking it could be by its size and teeth, however I would like input from others on the site. I've been collecting fossil for some time now and haven't seen anything like it. Thanks!
  16. Hello everyone, this is not a fossil but since there is so much knowledge in this forum I thought I'd ask here first. Please delete or move if not appropriate for the Fossil ID section. This is a modern skull. The size puzzles me as well as the dental not quite a house cat. Bob cat? Other ideas? It is tiny!! Scale in inches. Found in North Texas, near to a Coyote remains. Lot of wildlife, including bob cats, raccoons. Any way to tell what this is exactly? Thanks in advance!

    large cat medial phalanx

    I recently got this large cat medial phalanx, the info I got along with it isn't the most trust worthy, so I'm just looking to get other opinions from more experienced folks. The info I got is as follows, hometherium serum medial phalanx, st Mary's river. Pleistocene. I know it's from a large cat, either jaguar or smilodon/hometherium. Any opinions would be appreciated. I'm only about to upload one picture at a time, so I will reply with more pictures. It measures 1.48" long.

    Who does this bone belong to?????

    This is a Pleistocene metatarsal from what I believe is a cat like creature found in the N. Sulphur River, Lamar Co. south of Paris, Tx. Would like one of our bone experts to shed a little light on this. It is approx. 2 3/4 inches in length. highly mineralized so not present day. I have a thought as to ID but need to have other opinions, believe this is from a young animal---maybe. Thank you for your help Tom

    Pogonodon platycopis

    This is an amazing Pogonodon platycopis skull from the John Day Formation in Oregon. These are some of the most rare of the Nimravidae, as well as some of the oldest. See also Eaton 1922, Fremd et al. 1994, Macdonald 1970, Matthew 1910, Scott and Jepsen 1936 and Thorpe 1920
