  1. Out hunting - found what I think is a Symphyseal Meg, a tiny horse tooth I know is 3-toed but I’m not sure which, and then… some claw thing. @Shellseeker @fossillarry @Harry Pristis@Al Dente @hemipristis Meg? 3-Toed Horse tooth - I see an isolated protocone: Claw thing:
  2. Meganeura

    Peace River vertebrae

    So I forgot to ask for an ID on this yesterday - but anyone know what kind of vert this is? If you can name the animal even better - but I’m mostly looking for caudal/cervical/lumbar/thoracic, etc. found a few with this same shape but none as nice as this one.
  3. Found this today at Holden beach. Im not sure what it is but it reminds me of a turtle carapace. It looks like bone to me because of the honeycombing. Please help me ID this.
  4. Coryrsmith23

    Popes Creek, Westmoreland, VA, Potomac

    Please help me identify 2 unusual fossils I discovered November 2022 at Popes Creek on the Potomac River, Westmoreland VA. I have attached images.
  5. So found this last time I was out hunting. Marked it down as armadillo tooth at the time due to the shape, but only just realized armadillo teeth don’t have enamel. So my next best guess is giant beaver incisor chunk? @Harry Pristis any ideas?

    help with identifying these shells

    Hello everyone, I need you again. Today I bought some fossils, as a gift the seller sent me a shell (I don't know if they are brachiopods or bivalves). I asked him where they were from, and he told me that they were from Costa Rica, from a place called Puntarenas, but I looked up information on PBDB Navigator and there is no fossil site in that specific place (although there are two places nearby that date from the Eocene). . Could someone give me more information? I leave some images
  7. Okay so apologies in advance for how many ids I need… Toe bones first: 1 - no clue, they’re all pretty much the same size. Raccoon? 2 - Deer proximal? 3 + 4 I have no clue but I’m assuming carnivore. Verts: I know these are all mammal but no clue what: Astragaali: Thanks in advance! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker
  8. So found this today - my immediate thought was canine. Originally thought no enamel - but I brushed it, with a tooth brush - and it’s got white enamel. So… any help is appreciated! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker After brushing:
  9. Another bone valley ID - read this thread and I’m pretty sure it’s an ectocuneiform and not a Magnum or navicular. Measures 30x19x6.5mm. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @fossillarry
  10. Meganeura

    Bone Valley Astragalus ID Needed

    Found this Astragalus today - and I can’t figure out if it’s Horse or Tapir. Seems too big to be a tridactyl horse astragalus, but the deposit I was digging in does NOT contain Equus - only tridactyl horse fossils have been found. Which leaves me thinking Tapir. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker
  11. i found this near a recent rock slide , it was interesting and different from everything around it and had been covered in dirt so it had just seen daylight recently after a very long dirt nap! Short sand beach, Oregon it passed the is it a bone test - porous / sticky it’s hard and would be very difficult to break it sounds like it’s got room for air inside When I was cleaning it, there was a very waxy substance in some of the thin cracks. It has this horizontal line but it’s not like a crack or a scratch so maybe part of a turtle scute? this
  12. So couple ID’s needed from today… 2 partial carnassials that I’m 99% certain on but would like confirmation, and 1 partial canine that I’ve got no clue on. Partial carnassials - Dire Wolf, right? It’s gotta be: And the canine - found in the same spot as one of the above teeth, but I don’t want to make any assumptions, so… @Shellseeker do you think THIS one could be smilodon? But really - big cat? Seems too blade-like for ursid or canid, but I could be totally wrong.
  13. Meganeura

    Peace River bone ID

    So was sorting some older fossils and came across this one - originally I had it in my “random bone bits” drawer - but it looks relatively complete albeit somewhat worn. My initial thought was something similar to an astragalus - some kind of joint. Wondering if an ID might be possible. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Brandy Cole
  14. Rodneymarsh

    Potential fossil??

    Found in North Yorkshire inside a nodule. Before I attempt to remove anymore matrix does anyone have any idea what this maybe so I can go about the task in the right fashion and avoid destroying it. Thanks in advance
  15. Forgot to ask about this one yesterday! Just a fragment, but hopefully enough for an ID - my initial thought was bison but I’m sure horse is also possible!
  16. Last IDs needed for the day - 2 claw cores, a bone I’m not sure on, what I originally thought was a broken armadillo osteoderm but now is looking deliberate (especially since I found 2 similar ones), and a chunk of a vertebrae 1) Starting with the armadillo osteoderm/ear bone: 2) Then the bone: 3) The vertebrae: 4) Claw core 1: 5) Claw Core 2: Thank you very much in advance! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Brandy Cole
  17. Meganeura

    Strange bone chunk

    Another find from just now - big chunk of bone - about 3 inches/75mm I think. Got definite Features. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker Sorry to tag you guys again - you’re great at this though
  18. Meganeura

    Payne Creek Canine ID

    Just found this canine - really bad at IDing canines, and it’s decently worn. My only guess is Tapir? It’s about 30-35mm by the looks of it.
  19. Been a while since I’ve posted an ID - definitely taking that as a good thing and a sign of me learning. Today I found what I’m 99% sure is a fish jaw, though getting an id would be awesome, and then what I think is a claw core or distal phalanx of some kind. 1) Fish Jaw - 12.5mm in size 2) Claw core? - 25mm in length: Any help is appreciated as always!
  20. So I recently was struggling to determine the differences between various small mammal teeth (Opossum, raccoon, otter, skunk, etc.) and reached out to Richard Hulbert who pointed me towards a great resource: https://quod.lib.umich.edu/m/mam1ic?page=index This database has lots of pictures of mammal skulls, albeit only modern ones. To use, you just need to click the "Only include records with digital media" and then plug the scientific name (Procyon lotor instead of Raccoon, for example) into the search bar, and if there's pics in the database, they will show up! Hopefully this help
  21. Meganeura

    Peace River distal phalanx ID

    Found this distal phalanx from something just now - camera lens is foggy so apologies for the poor pics. Wouldn’t have known it was a distal phalanx had I not seen the picture @Harry Pristis posted yesterday. It’s about a half-inch in length - 17mm or so.
