  1. Found on the Kansas River. Here is what sure looks like a small horse lower leg bone and hoof. It has turned to mostly fossilized rock. I could be dreaming and it just be a plant fossil of some sort but it is hollow and the bottom of the "hoof" is indented just like a hoof pad area. All thought are welcome!

    Merychippus goorisi, Fleming Formation

    From the album: Miocene

    Merychippus goorisi, Austin Co. Barstovian, Miocene Mar, 2022 It seems more recent studies have determined Cormohipparion goorisi to actually be of the genus Merychippus, a variety of three-toed horses well known from the American Miocene. At least in 1981, this species was the oldest known hipparion in Holarctica (Northern Afro Eurasia and North America). Merychippus had longer muzzles, deeper jaws, wider set eyes, and relatively larger brains. It seems the type locality was flooded in the creation of Lake Livingston. The Miocene of Texas is overlooked. In the future, I
  3. Hello everyone this is my first post on the fossil forum.I’m 16 year old girl with autisum that loves fossils and I need help Identifying a fossil I got at a fossil/gemstone shop in South Dakota.I think it may be the rhino species Hyracodon.I also have a another fossil I got from the same place and I think it may be fossil horse or oredont tooth.So I would really appreciate it if someone can help me identify these.please and thank you.

    Tridactyl Horse

    A couple of beat up teeth. Just seeing if there is anything identifiable. @fossillarry @Meganeura Both cannot be lower right, the one below should be IDed as lower left.
  5. EroHed

    What type of tooth is this?

    Is this a Cows Tooth? If so, what part, and is it old or modern.
  6. EroHed

    What type of tooth is this?

    I found this in an area of creek in SW, MS. Can anyone identify what beast it belongs to, say cow, horse, bison, etc? Thanks in return.

    Tooth Split Repair

    I've got a small horse tooth from the Peace River near Wachula. It's got a big split down the middle and seems to be only getting worse. I submerged it in an unknown higher concentrate of paraloid-b72. Do you guys reckon that will be enough to halt the split? It was a deep split nearly separating it in half. I submerged the tooth for a few minutes in solution to completely saturate the tooth.
  8. Not sure if the identification section is the right place to post this because I know it is a Pleistocene Horse tooth from the Brazos river in southeast Texas. However I’m wondering if this is a pathological tooth or a cavity. I’ve found well over 100 horse teeth and none of them have this feature. I appreciate any insights

    Creek trip 3/19/23

    I had a short trip down to a nearby creek yesterday, and though I was only there for about an hour and a half, it had to be one of my best (creek) trips this year! We retrieved our first complete meg from this creek along with two beautiful great whites.We got some very nice sand tiger teeth. We got a nice little horse tooth. And what gets me most excited is my first piece of ivory.Heres all of the days finds.

    Vinice Florida 3/16/23

    Last Thursday I went on a dive in Vinice, it's taken me this long to post because I've been cleaning up the teeth I found for the last week. All in all I got 16 megs, 6 complete (I gave one to a friend who's house I was staying at, so I don't have a picture of that one) two complete horse teeth, a 50 cal bullet shell I believe, and a few smaller teeth that I don't have any pictures of. Over all it was a great trip, probably my best dive so far, anyways, thanks for reading!
  11. Hi - I found these today after a big storm very close to where I found some prehistoric horse teeth (or so I'm told) a few months ago. Oddly I found them in two different but close locations - same as the teeth. Anyone know what they are? Thanks!!!

    Small finds to ID

    Finding my favorites, Gomph, a Meg, Tridactyl horse, and a Periotic.. A enjoyable day in the sunshine with friends... The Meg came early but also found some nice Lemons, Tigers, and Sand Tigers. For identification, a couple of small Horse teeth... 1st has been slightly broken, but likely very identifiable. When we talk about the smallest of Florida Horse teeth, this lower must be a candidate. As we were picking thru the final sieves, this Cetacean periotic added excitement. It is the smallest one I have seen.. @Boesse

    St Mary’s river small horse tooth

    Picked up this small horse tooth on the bank of the St Mary’s River today and am having a tough time deciding on who the previous owner was - horse tooth enthusiasists what are your thoughts - the crown measurements are 15mm x 7mm
  14. Okay so @fossillarry you’re either going to love me or hate me after this, so I apologize in advance - a friend of mine gave me a bunch of 3-toed horse teeth he’s found hunting in the Gainesville area. 13 of em, in fact. I got measurements and the best pics I can of the chewing surfaces, let me know if I need more pics. Measurements are Width of chewing surface x Height of chewing surface. All in mm. 1) 23.5x17.8 2) 17x16.8 3) 15.7x12.8 4) 13.1x11.3 5) 25.3x19.1 6) 25x16
  15. Found a 3-toed horse tooth yesterday that I wanted to get ID’d! It has an APL of 16.2mm, a TRW of 15.2mm, and a height of 26.3mm. @fossillarry @Shellseeker

    Nice horse tooth

    This may be the best preserved Horse tooth I’ve ever found. It has very little wear and even still has the roots! I’ve looked through all the reference material that I have available and really haven’t found anything close. Even if I don’t get an ID I knew Jack would love to see this one! L=20.5mm W=13mm H=29mm. @Shellseeker
  17. Meganeura

    2 Florida 3-toed horse teeth

    So was digging through my box of horse teeth frags, and came across these 2 teeth that are quite worn/damaged but still complete enough to (possibly) see the pattern on. So @fossillarry when you get the chance… First one - apl is 16mm, top to bottom of chewing surface is 17.3mm. Second one - apl of 14mm, atw of 8.7mm. First I can’t remember where I found it… probably the peace. Second was found in the spoils pile in front of the Mulberry Phosphate Museum. thanks in advance!

    Miocene Horse lower tooth

    Went hunting Thursday. Found a couple of Megs, some small horse teeth, dermal denticles, barracuda teeth, and a bunch of small shark teeth *(Sand Tigers, Bull.Dusky, Hemis, Lemons). The only Horse tooth in decent shape is a lower right cheek tooth. Mostly, I find Nannippus, either aztecus or less frequently westoni. Here is a recent aztecus for comparison to this new find. The new tooth: @fossillarry

    Equid Nannippus tooth?

    Another equid tooth to confirm ID. This one could be Nannippus peninsulatus but I saw some similarity with Protohippus due to the connected protocone. It was found in Polk County, FL and measures 14 x 15 x 34mm. Thanks for looking! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker
  20. andy_mnemonic

    Archaeohippus tooth?

    I've had this tooth for a little while and would like to confirm with the resident horse experts @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker if it is an Archaeohippus tooth. It is from Dixie County, FL and measures 9.5 x 12.3 x 14.3mm. Thanks!
  21. These are all out of the same estate auction as my earlier posts. One of the members, found that much of the collection was posted on this site by the former owner but these weren’t. I sent him a message but doubt I will hear back given the nature of estate auctions. Any help identifying these is as always greatly appreciated.
  22. I found this horse molar (right tooth in the photo). It seems to have an isolated protocone as 3 toed horses do, but it is large (31mm left to right) and looks almost the same as most equuid teeth I have found. It is about 95 mm long- and does have a curve which you don't see in the photo. Large 3 toed horse or is it pathologic? @Shellseeker
  23. Over the weekend, me and my friend went to a creek in North Florida and found the Fossils below (main picture to fire wolf) the next day I went by myself to a land site near me and found most of the small teeth and the megalodon. This was our first time at this creek, and it was a huge success, with the most Miocene age fossils of any creek I have been to. We got camel, round- tailed muskrat ( thank you to those who helped identify that) horse, gator, and best of all, my first dire wolf tooth.
  24. I was told the rib could belong to some Pleistocene horse or a young mammoth. There were also proposals that the vertebra belonged to the steppe bison or the woolly rhinoceros. They both were found in Eastern Lesser Poland. What do you think? Thanks in advance!

    Three toed horse tooth ID help

    Could use a little help with this one. I think I have it narrowed down to Nannippus but haven’t found a close match with the info I have available. Thanks. APL=24mm. TRW=23mm. MSCH=37mm. Thanks @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis
