help ID fossil
paleomiles posted a topic in Fossil IDI have limited images but came across this tooth from a seller. they claim it to be some kind of African Pleistocene era felid. but they don't fully know. any ideas?
garyc posted a topic in Fossil IDThis is a modern bone, but I’m interested for comparative purposes. I know felid humeri have a hole at the distal end, so I’m wondering If bobcat would be a good fit for this bone?
darrow posted a topic in Fossil IDI picked this up today in Galveston Bay dredge spoils, late Pleistocene Beaumont Formation. I've tentatively identified it as Felid, 3rd right metacarpal. I'd like to identify it to at least the subfamily, Pantherinae or Machairodontinae but I'm not that familiar Felid material and my online search hasn't been much help. Hoping someone can point me to a source where I might find data on size and morphology of carpals and tarsals of these two the subfamilies.
Florida carnivore tooth
PrehistoricWonders posted a topic in Fossil IDHi all, Today I’ve got a carnivore canine from Florida that I bought about a month ago, I bought it as dire wolf, but I find that very hard to believe. I’ve got my suspicions but I wanted too ask your opinions. It is about 1 7/16” long, but would likely be in the two inch range if complete. Included is an estimated size. @PrehistoricFlorida @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Bone Daddy @digit. TIA
Please help me identifying this vertebra
Kiros posted a topic in Fossil IDHello 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)
Fossil tooth ID
Circuitcat posted a topic in Fossil IDHello! I won these two teeth from an auction and I am curious as to what they may be. It was listed as a fossil hyena tooth and a smilodon (which I do not believe given the location of the find and anatomy of the tooth, although it does have serrations). Any help would be appreciated =) The teeth are said to come from the Gansu Province, China. Dimension: 1st: 7.3 x 1.9 x 1.2 cm 2nd: 4.6 x 1.3 x 0.8 cm
Felid atlas vertebra?? Please help with ID
D.N.FossilmanLithuania posted a topic in Fossil IDDear Guys, I found this atlas vertebra 1 year ago in the Pleistocene sand area of Varena town, South Lithuania. By the attributes, I think this vertebra belong to felid. If it is felid, it should be bigger than cat or bobcat. The bigest diameter of it is 5,5 cm. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
