Vertebra--Bison or Equus?
Brandy Cole posted a topic in Fossil IDI found what I believe to be a lumbar vertebra, and I'm having trouble finding good comparison examples between equus and bison. I think those are my two most likely candidates. Do equus lumbar vertebrae have the foramen that I've circled in red below?
Found this small tooth last week while hunting the Peace River. Almost missed it in the sieve and initially thought it was just a chip of something. On getting it home and giving a closer look I became convinced it is a tooth. Maybe an incisor. After a lot of searching on line the closest I could come up with is horse incisor. Only I think it is way too small for that. The chewing surface appears more jagged and uneven then I would expect from a herbivore. The groove along the length of the tooth and its curvature are similar to what I have found on horse incisors. Measureme
Brandy Cole posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this little piece a while back, and I'm pretty sure it's a navicular. It looks similar to the equus navicular examples I've seen on the site, but there do appear to be a few differences. The differences might just be due to wear, but I wanted to see if anyone had a different take. Blocks are square inches.
Peace River ID Help
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil IDAs I wrapped up my hunting season on the Peace River, FL recently I decided to start going through my unidentified finds and try to figure out what they are. I am posting two of them here in the hopes that someone will recognize what they might be. Both are partials and were found at different sites on the river. First up is a rounded and grooved partial bone that I think could be the distal end of an Equus femur. There is an obvious groove on one side and this could easily be a ligament channel. Measurements seem to fit the Equus distal femur from what I have been able to f

Tooth found on the beach in Tel-Aviv
Lina posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this tooth on the beach in Tel-aviv, Israel. I looked up some photos and I think it may be an equus tooth. There haven’t been horses on that beach for a very long time so I’m wondering what time period it could be from. Thoughts?
Identification of "horse tooth"
JonTeixeira posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this tooth unlabeled in an oddities shop in Massachusetts. My thoughts were that it was from a horse and probably from southeast USA. Any ideas on age and species would be great! Im also curious what the white thing is on the bottom left of the chewing surface, some sort of marine life? Thank you!
Equus Tibia & Mammoth Tooth Fragment?
Pseudogygites posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone! I'm now living just outside Saskatoon and I am working with the University of Saskatchewan's Museum of Natural Sciences. The Saskatoon area is largely undescribed in paleontological literature, so I have been visiting various sites around the city in the hope of finding some fossils. I found these specimens in sediment exposed by construction excavation. I have several other bone fragments from this site, all exhibiting mineral staining, but they are likely ribs and vertebrae which are difficult to identify to the species level. The first is clearly a mammal limb bone. I believe i
Help with Peace River ID
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this tooth last week on the Peace River, FL. At first glance I thought incisor - Equus. Upon getting it home and looking closer I didn't know if in fact an Equus incisor could be as small as this as it measures 22 mm in length and 9 mm across the crown. The crown surface is worn so that while I thought there is a hint of what I would expect from the crown of a horse incisor, I just can't be sure. With that, I am submitting it to the knowledgable folks here who may be able to provide an ID. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
What ungual phalanx?
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this bone in the Peace River, FL last week. I have been attempting to narrow down an id since then. I believe it is an Ungual Phalanx but have not been able to determine from what. It measures 35 mm long x 35 mm wide and 33 mm tall at the highest point. As such, it is larger than what I can find for deer or llama and smaller than than what I have found for Equus or bison. That has led me to an old post from @Shellseeker that resulted in a giant tortoise id for an ungual phalanx and makes me think this could be another. It was found in a spot that produced several tortoise leg spu
Looking for some help with the ID on a tooth I pulled up from the Peace River, FL yesterday. On first glance in the sifter I thought it was a nice small chunk of a horse tooth (Equus sp.). When I got home and took a closer look it appeared to be the complete tooth minus 4 root extensions. The occlusal surface of the tooth was one I have not seen before. I tried to match it to Equus but kept coming up empty. I tried bovine with no luck either. From a close look at all four sides I do not believe it is broken and missing any of the crown.It well may be Equus, but I thought I would ask for i
Stumped on these two
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil IDI am having a tough time coming up with what these two teeth are. When I first pulled them out of the river I thought horse. Then looking closer I began to question that assumption because of the hollowness seen in both. Looking on line and through my Neophyte's Guide I then found a similar looking Sirenia molar. But then I also found a Neohipparium Eurystyle unerupted lower molar that looked like a possibility. Any help clarifying the ID on these would be appreciated.
ID Help Please
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil IDDid a lot of online searching trying to id this little specimen. What it seems to most resemble is the top if an Equus incisor. Could that in fact be what it is?
