    camelid proximal phalanges B

    From the album: BONES

    This is the third toe bone of a lamine (that is, related to llamas rather than dromedaries) camelid from the Plio-Pleistocene of Florida. Recovered from a Florida river.

    Bison?

    I was just checking to make sure, I found this in a dredge in Florida a while back (definitely the best condition mammal from the dredge). Is it bison, or some huge llama, or even cow. Thanks!

    Another Silicified Seashell

    I found a Silicified Seashell last month and it turned out to be a relative rare silicified version of a pretty common Oyster from 3-4 myas. It is not like I forget interesting locations to hunt , so we returned there yesterday. Lots and Lots of little shark teeth (100s with about 25% unbroken). These all become gifts to someone. My hunting friends, my family, school kids, Paleo museums, etc. Separating those out left this smaller group of interesting fossils.... On the lower right, that was the Only Meg I found and next to it a nice Mayumbensis from the Mi

    Artiodactyla Confirmation?

    I am hoping for confirmation from one of our Peace River, FL experts on a bone I picked up last week. I am always looking for new land mammal finds (at least new to me) and I think I have one here. After several hours on line and looking through Kocisis' Vertebrate Fossils guide I believe I have nailed this down as a seismoid, lateral malleolar of Hemiauchenia macrocephala. The protruding "point" is quite distinctive. The specimen measures 35mm Long x 17 mm Wide x 28 mm tall. Input from anyone who believes they can confirm the ID would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    camel cervical vertebra

    From the album: BONES

    This is a cervical (neck) vertebra - a C3 or C4 - from a Pleistocene camelid from Gilchrist County, Florida. The species name is uncertain, but lamine (llamas) camels were the dominant species in the Florida Pleistocene. More images at: http://www.thefossil...be/#entry599855

    Peace River ID help

    Finally made it back to the Peace River ,Fl for my first hunt of the season. It was a good day overall. Along with numerous and varied small shark teeth I came up with these two finds that I am hoping for some input on for a positive ID. First up is a piece of ivory that I believe must be Gomphotherium due to the black banding. I considered it might be staining from the river but it looks to uniform and seems to be layered. Next is what I believe to be Artiodactyl in nature. Maybe camel or llama. My hesitation with this ID is the size. I belie

    Tiny Blue Llama Cap

    So I have a tooth that I both wanted to share and provoke some discussion and ask some questions. I believe it to be an enamel Cap ... roots never formed. I suppose that is the 1st question. Llamas need teeth as soon as they are born, so the animal forming this tooth died before birth. Is that a reasonable speculation? I can not detect any crenulations (not sure that they occur on baby teeth) so is this likely Hemiauchenia ? I will attempt to find reading material on how often replaced/how may sets of teeth Llamas have. I will see Richard Hulbert on Thursday and will ask hi

    Texas Camel/Llama Teeth?

    Like I said in my last post in this section of the forum about a turtle nuchal element, I've spent some time hunting the Colorado River here in southeastern Texas since my usual go-to spots on the Brazos have been completely submerged for months from all the rain we've been getting this summer. Fortunately, it's paid off with some unusual finds that, if my hunches are correct, aren't anything like what I normally find. These two teeth in particular were found within inches of each other close to the water's edge, however, I don't think they're associated based on the difference in preser

    Camel/Llama Small Molar

    Summertime presents challenges and rewards. Usually, you are digging in deeper water, even when you can find gravel. For me, this means 4 to 5 feet. Most times, I can not employ my favorite technique: dig down to whatever is underneath the gravel and spread out from the river bottom. I am basically scraping the top 6 inches of gravel. and thus I am depending on new gravel getting washed downstream by the faster currents. My finds tend to be less diverse and limited in numbers compared to winter hunting. So, 5 osteoderms, 4 Mastodon fragments, 3 mammal earbones, 3 gar scales, a bunch
  10. Back on the Peace River yesterday. Another cool start to the day, 63* F when I launched at 8:00am. Headed back to where I found the camel cuboid last week and found there was still plenty of gravel to sift through. The morning progressed with a couple of nice, if partial, alligator teeth, many small shark teeth (nearly 200 by the end of day) a partial deer tooth and a couple of turtle leg spurs (5 for the day). The afternoon produced a couple of unidentified bones I will have to research and a very nice Llama astragalus - Hemiauchenia macrocephalus. Makes sense after finding the cuboid la

    Peace River ID help

    Got out to the Peace River, FL yesterday for another hunt. The water level finally seemed low enough that I would be able to get to my target spot and have a productive day. The only problem was the fact that the sun never came out and I had to quit early due to getting wet and cold with no way to warm up. Luckily I had my emergency dry shirt to change into before I started shivering! I always keep one on board the kayak sealed in a plastic bag. Came up with several of the usual items, horse tooth, partial megs, couple of hemis, turtle and a nice gator tooth. Then I pulled up what I believ

    Tooth ID? Horse, camel, llama

    I found this along the Satilla River in Southeast Georgia USA. Can anyone help me identify what kind of tooth it is? It is very square in circumference. There are four holes in the bottom. It is fairly straight, not very curved.

    Provenance needed

    A collector/dealer recently donated to our museum a small collection of Pleistocene vertebrate fossils (mostly mammalian) from Florida. Only a few items were labelled, and he could not recall any provenance for some of the material. Even though the material was poorly provenanced, it will make a welcome addition to our comparative collection of Pleistocene vertebrates. Can anyone help me with the provenance for the llama/camel (cf. Hemiauchenia) calcaneum in this phone-camera snapshot? I thought the attached oyster shells might help in narrowing down the possibilities.

    Need some help on a molar? Deer?

    Well Gang, here's the latest unknown I could use some help with. A surface find Manatee County, FL. Likely Plio-Pleistocene in age. It is good sized and just over 1 inch at its widest (2.8cm X 1.5cm) in occlusal view. Can anyone confirm it is or is not deer? Would love to hear the reasoning on how/why. Went thru some of the other Deer/llama ID posts but I'm still unsure. I'd love to have genus if either is possible if its not deer. Let me know if any other measurements/views are needed. Thanks, Chris

    Camel Cannon?

    About a year ago I posted pics of a distal camelid cannon bone. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/48651-cannon-bone/?hl=camelops Now I think I have the proximal end. This piece measures 5.5 inches long and the widest measurement is 2.75 inches. Is it camel? If so, would the size suggest camelops? Thanks.
