  1. Hello, I found some fossil teeth on a friends ranch in Eastern Oregon and was hoping for some help with ID. The area has been described as Mascall Formation (16 Ma) from the Miocene, however there aren't any detailed geologic maps of the region and I suspect some areas may be closer to the Pliocene. The teeth were found as float material from several places. I think #1 or #2 may be Merychippus or Pliohippus (horses) and #4 may be Equus (horse). #1-3 were all found in the same general area and I am fairly confident it is Mascall Fm (Miocene). However, #4 was found in another area and appears to

    Horse tooth. Fossil?

    I found this horse tooth on a gravel bed right next to a small creek in NE Ohio. This tooth seems to be fossilized but I'm not 100% sure If lightly tapped against another rock, it gives off the sharper sound of two rocks hitting rather than the thud of a bone. Also I don't see any white enamel left. The enamel on the section that is partially broke is slightly translucent and appears to have crystalline properties. Also this tooth is way harder than it should be but also it is a little brittle on the one side where it's broken. Fossils are quite rare in this part of

    Bone Valley Earbones

    I was out yesterday and i found an earbone. My initial impressions was that this was a Dolphin periotic, but I soon changed my mind. Over the years in hunting the Peace river, the 1st Earbone that I found was Equus, and I have found 30 at least since the first. Most hunters I discuss horse ear bones, say they either throw them back or leave them laying in a dusty drawer as unidentified bones. Usually they have a lot of wear , but here is a pristine one, with many more features than normal including some skull material. It is 45 mm Length and 30 mm width. Yesterday,
  6. Hey so I have this very degraded fossil tooth from the Peace River. I'm assuming it's horse of some kind but can't tell if Equus or some kind of three toed horse. I think it's partially broken too so I don't know if we're even able to ID it. Sorry for the poor quality pictures. Camera isn't great and the tooth is only an inch long.

    Equus or Pre-equus Tooth?

    I found this molar in a south Texas gravel bar. Pretty sure it's equus since there's no isolated protocone (although there is a tiny pebble stuck right in the join, haha). I just noticed that it's a bit smaller than all my other equus teeth, and the pattern seems simpler. I looked through "Fossil Vertebrates of Florida" and couldn't quite make a match with either equus or pre equus examples. MSCH from root to parastyle: ~65mm APL length of crown enamel: 24 mm TRW width of crown from mesostyle to posterior protocone: 25mm. First pics are the tooth, then a couple o

    Worn Horse Jaw Section?

    Hey guys, I’m hoping someone can help me out by confirming the ID on this odd fossil I found in the Peace River! It is a very worn section of jaw bone with 3 teeth showing. The teeth appear to be that of an equine, so I assume what I have here is a section of an equine jaw worn by water and time. The shape of it is odd, though.
  9. I made it out hunting Thursday and Friday, found some treasures I am still sorting. Also , met up with a friend who has been finding some early horse fossils and wished to give to the opportunity to acquire them. He had a very nice , very small upper molar. and a couple of Proximal Phalanx... The Phalanx were of a size to make me wonder if they were pre_Equus or Equus. One is just under 3 inches and the other under 2.5 inches. do we move from Equus to pre_Equus and then down to what I believe is the smallest of the Florida small horses, Nannippus morgani

    Osteoderm Identification

    Inland Venice,FL. Pleistocene material. Removing matrix from specimen that I thought was Equus jaw. Several confirmed teeth from this 2’ x 2’ square. During removal, I found this. Before I continue removing matrix, looking for identification of this osteoderm. I have also found (jet black) alligator jaw piece approximately 10’ feet away. Thanks in advance. I am also looking for feedback on whether to continue removing matrix or display fossils in matrix.

    Juvenile Equus Tibia?

    Previously identified as an Equus tibia. I originally assumed the articular surfaces had been eroded away by the river however I recently compared this to other Equus tibias I’ve collected from the same river and they do not exhibit this pattern of erosion. In fact, the articular surfaces of the other specimens are very much intact showing little more than a polish from the river. Looking at the texture of the exposed cancellous bone at the ends of this tibia and comparing it to that of isolated epiphyseal plates I have collected I’m thinking this tibia is from a juvenile. The articular su

    Equus Long Bone

    Unknown long bone. Found in Pleistocene material. Inland, Venice, Florida. Specimen measures 62mm wide x 46mm. Canal in pic: L5 is 13mm wide. I have found Equus teeth in same location. Overall length of this hollowed bone is 123mm to break. I could not find an image for the joint surface to compare. I recovered the Equus tooth (EQ_L7) in the same location. It is a M2, left (upper molar). Thank you for your ID assistance. -Regards, Michael

    Could these be Calippus teeth?

    Through the years I've found these very small horse teeth in SE Texas. In the photo the 2 center teeth are each 16 mm wide as measured across the width of the crown, the rightmost tooth 19 mm. I know these pre-equus teeth can be difficult to ID. Anyone out there can help? @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @garyc

    Unknown Vertebra in Venice

    Unknown fossil. Found in Pleistocene material. Inland, Venice, Florida. Specimen measures 65mm x 60mm. Smooth portion is 42mm high. I have found both Equus teeth and alligator jaw in same location. This item is a first for me. It appears to be possibly a caudal vertebra? Image 2 has a concave surface. Image 4 has a convex surface like it would match up with another concave surface. I think I have seen a photo of it before somewhere but I don't recall. Thank you for your ID assistance. -Regards, Michael

    Horse Cannon Bone Question

    So I've been hitting the Brazos River pretty steadily all year for Pleistocene fossils, but aside from some astragali, the only perfectly complete bones I've been able to find are two Equus metacarpals ( cannon bones). I'm not sure if this post belongs in this section of the forum since I'm not really looking for an ID (unless I'm wrong and one of the bones isn't Equus after all), but instead wanted to ask a question about the bones' anatomy. That's because although they both look exactly the same and are both clearly cannon bones from what I'm positive are horses, they each have different len

    Camel Teeth ... Maybe?

    Inland Venice, FL tooth recovery. Pleistocene material. Found an Equus tooth approx. 15 feet from this on recently excavated, permission granted property. I think it is a camelid tooth x 2. Can't find a close match online, gallery, or textbook. The two teeth together are 27mm wide. This is the first time I have found teeth attached to a jaw fragment. ID assistance appreciated. Looking forward to numerous fossil recoveries after storm passes by my home on Tuesday. -Regards, Michael

    UNKNOWN INCISOR TOOTH?

    Greetings, Unknown tooth, possible incisor. It is a lot bigger than Equus cheek teeth I have found in area. Pleistocene material, inland Venice, FL. Occlusal surface is 2cm x 3cm. Tooth is 4cm tall x 3cm wide. Occlusal surface is shiny. Large Vertebrae found 20 feet away in spoil pile. See attached photo. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Vertebrae is 5 inches x 5 inches
  22. Greetings, I have only been actively recovering fossils for the past 12 months. Fortunately, as a forensic science teacher, my work schedule allowed me to search approximately 200 days during this time. My interest in Equus is strong based on growing up on a horse farm. After finding my first Equus tooth in Venice, FL, I was hooked. I have been reading: textbooks, The Bulletin of the Florida State Museum, Biological Sciences, and numerous FF members' galleries of photos. I have learned a lot during this journey. I want to share information I have received from Dr. Richard C. Hulbert Jr

    Venice, FL Horse Teeth, Equus?

    Greetings, Unusual caramel colored tooth recovered from land spoil in East Venice, FL. I understand this tooth is not complete, most likely a lower tooth and not that worn. unusual ridges on the sides. Unlike any other equus tooth I have found. I spent around 15 hours going through the ID galleries from the forum as well as Fruitbat's library. I'm reaching out for help with this one. Additionally, I have recovered an unusual amount of fossils from this 80' x 80' parcel. Iron content in this location results in most fossils colored reddish/brown. I'm hoping the tooth ID w
  24. Got back out to the Peace River yesterday, returning to the spot that gave me a nice bison tooth on my previous visit. It was 67* F on arrival and breezy. A bit unusual for Florida at this time of year! The water was warmer than the air temp. It was also a little deeper, more cloudy and running a little faster due to rain the previous night. I paddled up stream, portaged over a small area of rapids and was digging by 8:30am. Started off in the last dig spot but was turning up nothing but small shark teeth. It was enough to keep me encouraged but not enough to keep me from feeling the c
