alhuerga posted a topic in Fossil IDSo today I found this horn while hiking. The place where I found it -called Castrillo del Val- is known for the great amount of potamides fossils found all over the ground; furthermore, bison priscus lived nearby. The place is pretty close to Atapuerca, a big deposit of homo antecessor. I think it might belong to a bison priscus horn core, I’ll post some pictures and let’s see what this is!
Identify? Short, curved horn-like, 2-sided fossil.
yhwhismight posted a topic in Fossil IDFound in Durham, Ontario, Canada, in limestone. Looks like some kind of shell, but am unable to find anything similar online. This specimen was loose but there are others nearby embedded in the limestones.

What about this one?
Steak_Knife86 posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this in my back yard under a pile of rocks. I see scales, a skull with 2 horns, a mouth, the fossilized brain stem, and even a hole where the spinal chord would be.
Buffalo? Bison? Bull? New? Old?
joshuajbelanger posted a topic in Fossil IDHey everyone, Staying on some private property with a river in central Colorado. While walking the creeks looking for anything of interest, I came across this. I am not familiar with the horned creatures! Is this bull? Buffalo? Bison? Antiquus? I don’t know, any information would be much appreciated. My wife wanted to get a picture and then looked a little peeved when I said, “Why? I’m taking it home.” Lol Sorry for the pics, don’t have anything to scale. Lemme know what you think. I can post better pics tomorrow. i thought it was driftwood at firs
Old Bison Horns?
Tyler Matters posted a topic in Fossil IDI'm not sure, but I found what I think is the top of a bison skull with the horns. I found it in central Iowa, sitting on a sand bank in the middle of a river/creek. Could someone tell me if it is? The horns are kind of straighter like an ancient bison, could someone estimate the age and tell me if they think it is? The horn spread is just over 21 inches. It seems pretty old and almost fossilized. Thanks for any help in figuring it out. I'm really interested in what you have to say.
Kasia posted a topic in Fossil IDDear TFF members, I have bought these two on an auction - the seller says they were found in the sands of the Vistula river, in the area of Kraków (south of Poland). Could they be fossilised horns? I will appreciate any suggestions Kasia
Large fossil(s) ID. Port Angeles shale
Phil_shiffley posted a topic in Fossil IDHi there! First time poster, so I apologize if I'm lacking information. Also, my phone died on my way to the location, so I couldn't take pictures of the area I found them in. I tried to doodle a picture, but I'm no artist. Today I decided to check out a beach I had heard about near Port Angeles on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. . On this beach, there is a section of mudstone/sandstone about 60 feet tall and 100 feet long. At the base of the slope was a boulder(also sanstone/mudstone) about 6 feet tall and 4-5 feet around. It must've recently fallen because it was crum

Tusks, Horns, or teeth?
Brad1978 posted a topic in Fossil IDI found these on the Dry Frio River 4 miles east of Uvalde, Texas. Can anybody determine what these are. I thought they might be teeth.
Horns, Frills, Clubs And Spikes - Show Or Defense?
Tyrannoraptor posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionHerbivore dinosaurs are every bit as interesting as the big, scary monsters that were preying on them. While herbivores may have been the more peaceful kind, their variety is what makes them so fascinating - Stegosaurs with large plates on their backs and spiked tails, Ceratopsians with their horns and bony frills, or Ankylosaurs with their impressive armour. It must have all been for defense, right? Perhaps not. Many scientists now believe that those structures (well, aside from Ankylosaur's thick armour perhaps) have been used primarily as means of display or intimidation. for example, Tric
