    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
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  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

    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

    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
  11. I found this broken end of a long bone several months ago near Houston in the late Pleistocene gravel deposits of the Beaumont and Lissie Formations. Here are some pictures (with each grid on the graphing paper being 1/4 of an inch): I know that it's the end of a tibia because the grooves on the end are shaped to match an astragalus (ankle bone), and that their slanted angle indicates a perissodactyl like a horse, tapir, or rhino rather than an artiodactyl like a bison, pig, deer, or camel. Based on the size of the bone, I think I can pretty easily r
  12. I've been dragging my feet on posting trip reports on two excursions out to a river in SE Texas simply because I hate having to convert image file formats but I've finally bit the bullet and am ready to report! First up is a trip a month ago. The weather has been brutally hot so I have to head to and leave the site earlier than id like but I've recently found a way out to a gravel bar that's actually an island in the river and had pretty good luck on both occasions I've been there hunting. Drought conditions have exposed large areas of the gravel bars and might be the reason why this spot is a
  13. Hello, I found some fossil teeth on a friends ranch in Eastern Oregon and was hoping for some help with ID. The area has been described as Mascall Formation (16 Ma) from the Miocene, however there aren't any detailed geologic maps of the region and I suspect some areas may be closer to the Pliocene. The teeth were found as float material from several places. I think #1 or #2 may be Merychippus or Pliohippus (horses) and #4 may be Equus (horse). #1-3 were all found in the same general area and I am fairly confident it is Mascall Fm (Miocene). However, #4 was found in another area and appears to

    Horse tooth?

    Would love some help IDing this. Found on manasota key in Florida USA. I'm leaning towards horse. But I've gotten bison ans kangaroo in another group.
  15. So went out on the peace today to a new spot. Which I will absolutely be returning to. This weekend actually, cause it won’t rain till Monday, so the water is just gonna keep dropping! Anyway, had some awesome finds today, even though my cursed Meg luck continues. So to start off with the coolest finds: We’ve got a m2? or m1 Equus horse tooth in incredible condition, there’s only slight damage to the very bottom of the root on one side: A piece of dolphin jaw sans teeth: A massive glyptodont scute: 2 Tilly bones!

    Modern Bone and Tooth?

    Howdy! Found a bone and tooth the other day in a stream in Allegheny County. I tried burning the bone, but couldn't smell anything.
  17. Most of the fossil hunting in Jacksonville is limited to dredge spoil sites from the St. John’s River. The majority are off limits or severely overgrown by vegetation so when I saw bulldozers turning over one of my favorite sites along the river I knew it was only going to take a few showers to wash it down and the tropical rains from last week did the trick ! Made it out there 2 days in a row and was quickly reminded how good it can be here with my first find a beautiful great white tooth partially encased in matrix. You find alot of fossils here with matrix on them and found several sharks t

    Horse Tooth-Florida three toed?

    Hi Found in the peace river in Florida. Can someone tell me if this is a three toed horse or it’s descendant? It is fossilized. To me it looks three toed based on the shape and curvature? Any ideas? Thanks
  19. Here are some messel fit specimens I recently got and saw. These are from German collector, old collection. I guess that bird and fish(amia) specimens is real, but not sure about the others. Is there anyone who can identify it?

    Toebones and Earbones

    I was out again with a good friend. He has a huge garden and gifts me vegetables from time to time. Yesterday he gave a one of his earliest perfectly ripe Cantaloupes. We had some for breakfast... sweet and delicious. Once again, I saw @PODIGGER at the launch point. to discuss finds, but I left early. It was a day of few finds. Some broken Megs, a few Hemis, but I like tigers, and I did get a contortus. Some turtle, which I do not normally keep, in the center a chunk of a Capybara m3, an earbone which was my find of the day (I will separate to another fossil ID
  21. OK my fellow fossil hunters need your help with this one… What could it be?

    Mammal Tooth ID

    Hi all, I found this tooth that washed out of the Charleston Harbor in South Carolina that is ~3 inches long and ~2 inches wide. I was wondering if someone could help me with an ID on it? Thinking it may be horse, bison, or cow, but those are just guesses so any help would be appreciated!

    A Return to the Brazos

    Finding the three-toed horse tooth from my first trip really inspired me, so I made the long drive back to a spot I found along the Brazos River. Despite the treacherous route down the bank and mile long journey to the far end of the sandbar, I was not discouraged. I don't usually look for things from this time period, so almost anything I'd find would be a personal first which added an extra layer of enthusiasm to the hunt. The weather was nice and various recreational planes flew about in the sky. Although the Brazos water isn't the prettiest sight to behold, the carved cliffs and southeaste

    Partial bone identification

    Greetings, I found this bone on property where cattle used to feed and where bison were native to. This was found in the side bank of a washout and roughly 1 ft below surface grade. A friend went to track for it and it snapped upon grabbing it and the other portion is still buried. It is currently frozen so I am unable to dig further into the bank to reveal more of the bone. It appears to be fairly old and the inside is hollowed out. I was wondering if anyone may be able to identify it based on side and shape. Please let me know what your thoughts are.
