    Horse teeth

    I'm fairly sure these are horse teeth (except the first, I've thought about zebra and camel as well) and was curious if anyone could help me ID them. Thanks!

    Hunting at the Meeting

    I went hunting last night!! at my local fossil club. We had 96 attendees and I had volunteered refreshments (pulled pork sliders, various desserts). Lots of members come in and want IDs. I also saw Chris -Plantguy (TFF) but it was hectic. On show&tell, I showed the Grallator track, Capybara molar, and some shark tooth finds from the last month. Lots of club members came in to identify or sell fossils they had recently found. Here are some I scratched my head on -- I know there are 3 horse and 1 sloth, but which sloth ,, which horse? I think I have the ID on 2 and possible ID on a

I found the following: -megaladon tooth -mako teeth -130 total shark teeth -partial horse tooth -puffer fish mouth plate -all kinds of bones -petrified wood -Ray teeth -ray barbs -sawfish teeth -whale tooth (?) -croc teeth -Shells, barnacles, coral -12 shark vertebrae Hopefully next time I will be able to upload images faster.

    Horse or Bison tooth?

    Hello: This was found on the beach in North Carolina. I can't remember if I was told if this was a small horse tooth or a bison tooth. Any help is always greatly appreciated. Thank you, David

    Horse Tooth? Fossil or Recent?

    I recently went on my third trip to hunt sharks teeth. I came up with quite a few pieces and another ptychodus... Plus an 1892 V nickel. On all three trips to this creek I have seen recent bone and modern cow teeth. I'm guessing the large tooth in the second pic is horse? Normally I can tell a recent tooth but I'm not sure about this one. Is there a test or way to tell if its fossilized? I'm leaning towards recent but wanted to be sure before I chunked it.

    Can anyone identify this fossil

    This is a recent find. Judging from other pieces identified this looks to me to be a partial lower jawbone with teeth of a horse ancestor. Its hard to see the pattern on the teeth and they are very worn and fairly dirty. I've been a little afraid to clean these pieces as I don't want to damage them. I have just read up on cleaning methods so I will try them out on a lesser piece. This find came from the same dredge location near Houston Texas. I'm hoping that someone can confirm this is a horse fossil. Thanks again to all of you.

    Horse tooth?

    Can anyone tell me if this is indeed a horse tooth fossil & what age it would likely be from?

    Horses tooth? Or something else

    Found this tooth on a beach in Dorset, UK many years ago but just re-found it again... Was wondering what it could be, a horse possibly? Would love to know more

    Mesohippus jaw

    From the album: Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    My finished prep of this Mesohippus (three toed horse) jaw. This is from the White River Formation in Nebraska. 31-35Ma.
  12. This jaw section is from the Nebraska Badlands. Found near a Hyaenodon jaw. I'm no expert. Anyone know what this is from? My first tentative guess is three toed horse...Any experts?
  13. This is my first attempt at cleaning a Badlands fossil. Brutal. SO much hard chalky rock it took me about 4hrs wit a pic and a little while on the toothbrush. Anyone else here have experience with these fossils? (Pics are before and after)

    Prehistoric horse jaw. Mesohippus.

    From the album: Badlands, Nebraska megafauna.

    This mesohippus jaw was found near the Hyaenodon. Not sure of species yet but I believe it to be a three toed horse.

    Pleistocene Horse Molars

    From the album: Jerry's Really Old Stuff

    Two adjoining associated upper pre molars from an early equus (horse) yarmouth interglacial Pleistocene of Nebraska. The equus species is believed to have evolved from early North American horse species which migrated to Asia and Europe and subsequently migrated back into North American across the Bering straights during the mid Pleistocene era. The oldest fossils of equus have been found in Asia and Europe.These fossils are completely mineralized and probably date in excess of 200,000 years. The fossil beds adjoining the Niobrara River of Nebraska contain a wealthy of mid Pleistocene mammal f

    Pleistocene Bones Nebraska

    From the album: Jerry's Really Old Stuff

    Part of a collection of Pleistocene mammal fossils recently acquired. Camelops phalanx, two species horse hooves, Pliocene three toed horse astragalus, Pliocene horse metapodial, horse medial phalanx, bison calcaneum, unidentied hoof and proximal phalanx. Generally these fossils were found in the context of yarmouth inter glacial mid Pleistocene Niobrara River fossil beds though a few are older or somewhat more recent like the bison calcaneum. Age: 200,000 to 600,00 years for yarmouth, 2 to 4 million for Pliocene fossils.

    Mammal tooth?

    I found this tooth and antler in the lower brazos river. The antler looks a lot like deer to me. The tooth is my first to find. I haven't found a similar tooth searching through the forum, so any thoughts?
  18. I have had to sit on this for a while but can now let the cat out of the bag. One of the coolest things I have ever had the opportunity to work on. It was such an honor to work on this little guy. Protorohippus venticolum (Alternative combinations: Eohippus venticolus, Hyracotherium venticolum, Protorohippus venticolus) Early Eocene Fossil Lake, Kemmerer, Wyoming This is one of the world’s most rare and complete fossil skeleton of one of the world’s oldest horses. This is an amazingly complete skeleton with the only restoration being to the pelvis and upper femur bones. The skull is
  19. Recently bought this early horse molar, hipparion (possibly nannippus?) Pliocene to late Miocene eras, Bone Valley area of Florida, probably dates about 5 to 10 million years BP. I have many different early horse teeth but this is the smallest at 1 inch in length and a complete well defined example. These were among the first early horses, though small, to have all the physical characteristics of the modern horse.

    Richardson's Landing vertebrae

    From the album: Jerry's Really Old Stuff

    This horse vertebrae was found at the Richardson's landing Pleistocene site on the Mississippi River Tipton County, TN just north of Memphis by my brother's friend Mike. The site is well known for peccary, bear, mastodon and other period fossils. Mike gave them to my brother who gave them to me in 2013. Also included in the group were pieces of fossil horse molars and a nearly complete horse femur. The Memphis Museum owns Pleistocene fossils from this site.

    Another First From The Bay

    It's always nice when you can find something new when collecting and Saturday I was able to do just that. I planned on meeting up with easternshore88 to embark on a kayaking adventure but before he arrived I went to a close by collecting spot to have a look around before he arrived. Another hunter arrived shortly after I did and come to find out it was cowsharks. It's always nice to run into forum members when your out and about. We stopped to chat for a bit and as we were doing so daryl found a beautiful bramble shark tooth, being as rare as they are I had to take some pictures of the too
  23. Just went out for a quick kayaking trip to scope out the END of the English river. River Junction to be exact, ran up on the sand due to low water levels. As I was walking over the sandbar I notcied several fossilized corals, that I'm sure of. However, I also found this tooth and it seems to have started my newly found hobby of fossil hunting. I love this site just from browsing for a few mins and I would appreciate all the help I can get on this tooth. My curiosity is driving me nuts! Bison? Cow? Horse? Sasquatch? Thanks again!

    Curiosity Killed The Newbie...

    I would love input as to what this tooth may be. Found in the St. John's river (actually my toes found it). The folds and whatnot just piqued my curiosity as I have never seen a tooth like this. It's small and flat and I can only guess it came from a mammal. Any help is greatly appreciated.
