Are these fossils members of Francevillian biota?
GABRIEL.P posted a topic in Fossil IDIn a beach near Galaxidi, in Greece, i found some grey fossils on rocks with layers, just like the stromatolites. I believe that these fossils are members of Francevillian biota, witch includes the earliest multicellular organisms that was found in Gabon. These are the reasons that make me think that these fossils are from the Francevillian biota; 1.The fossils have got the same thickness with these that were found in Gabon; 6 mm. 2. In the past, one part of Eurasia (probably Greece) was next to Gabon in the Paleoproterozoic era, when the Francevillian biota appeared.
unknown tooth from a sandstone quarry
archeria posted a topic in Fossil IDI enquired a unidentified tooth from an oligocene sandstone quarry in Eurasia, im kind of convinced its a entelodont tooth,doesn't look like a crocuta one... (i will find it and show you the file)
porshaman posted a topic in Fossil IDHello. First I wanted to thank everyone who responded to me regarding the "bear-dog-Hyena" pictures. I have since identified the specimen as Pachycrocuta brevirostris. So for those of you said "Hyena", you were correct. At first I though it might be a Dinocrocuta, however, areas of the skull simply did not match up. Anyways, I have attached pictures of what I am sure to be a Eurasian Cave Lion. I would like to know if these specimens are common since I may be in the position to purchase it. Any opinions are greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
