    Mammal bone

    I’m at a loss on this large bone fragment. I found it on the Brazos River in SE Texas, Pleistocene. It seems too thick for a rib…. The solid bone at the broken end is about 1/2 inch thick. At 10 inches long and broken, it could be a limb bone???
  2. Found these teeth while hiking at Pawnee Buttes last year and am unsure what they belong too. My top guess would be Oreodont though.

    Hyaenodon ?

    Hello I found this in the White River Formation in Wyoming. Is this a Hyaenodon ? The block of rock seemed much harder than usual and had no cracks in it. It was more difficult to prep out than other similar fossils (oredonts, archeotherim, Probotherium) that I have found in the same area. I think maybe the harder un-cracked matrix contributed to the nicer quality of the fossil. Lots of amateur prepping mistakes but the matrix was soooo resistant to removal. Just wouldnt pop off nice like it does sometimes and I dont own a respectable sand blaster machine.

    mammal teeth indonesia

    Got them from Java Indonesia. The seller claimed they are "tiger" teeth. Can someone tell me more about them? Bigger one is 4cm smaller around 3cm.
  5. Hi Everyone! So, yeah. I'm completely stumped. It's from North Florida and I'm fairly certain it's mammalian but beyond that I got nothin. measurements are about 2 x 1.625 x .75 inches (about 5 x 4 x 2 cm) Any feedback is greatly appreciated as always!
  6. My youngest brother found this on his first microsite hunt. I could not believe it. I have not found many mammal teeth and am unsure as to what this belonged to. I also added some pictures of another tooth found in the area that I am having a hard time placing an ID on. Any help is appreciated! Hell Creek formation, Dawson County, MT.

    Bone found in Venice, Florida

    I don’t believe it’s a dugong fossil as IIRC they don’t have hollow marrow areas. It was found away from the beach but around shells, the peace river formation isn’t stratified either way. The last picture may be a separate all together but was found in this cluster of bone, it looks like turtle shell I have seen. It’s on a napkin for scale but the large portion is about the length of my pinky. The shell object is about the size of a nickel. Because of the shell piece found within the bone cluster I’m imagining it could be a turtle humorous

    Pleistocene Teeth

    Hi all, this is my first post on here, but defnitely won't be the last. I'm newly returned to fossil hunting after a multi-decade absence, and I'm very glad to have found this forum! The teeth in the images came from a Pleistocene deposit overlying the London Clay of Essex. I'm tentatively going with deer for the small ungulate tooth, but no clue with the other rooted molar. You might be able to see that a third root has broken off. I've done plenty of searches along the lines of 'ice age mammal tooth ID guide', but could do with some help on the molar - and pointing towards any o

    Not really sure, sacrum of some sort?

    Hi all, I found this today at one of my usual spots isolated on the surface. There was some surrounding float but nothing big enough to ID. I’m thinking it’s a sacrum perhaps, but that’s really just a guess. It seems probably 95% complete with just two small broken pieces. Any thoughts of what kind of animal (genus) would have something like this. Any help is appreciated as always!!
  10. Hello, everyone - I found this in a creek in Texas this morning. Initially I thought it was a large tooth, but on closer inspection, it seems like it might be a fossilized palate? With three rows of small teeth? Very odd, but I'm sure one of you will have a simple answer. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer. Specifics: Solid rock. Seems to be fossilized. Not a modern bone. 6.75" "Long", 3.25" "Wide" and 1.5" "Thick." In this particular creek I've found several Mosasaur (or marine reptile of some sort) vertebrae. Modern bones. Two arrowheads and a spear point. A

    Unknown Humerus

    I found this distal end of a mammalian humerus several weeks ago on the Brazos River southwest of Houston. After hours of searching, it doesn't seem to exactly match any of the common suspects: deer, camel, horse, or bison. Deer or camel is more likely than horse or bison, as the bone is relatively slender and the end of it isn't as bulky as either of those animals. It is possible that I have incorrectly ruled out deer and camels as the trochlea and capitulum on the end are very worn down. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm more than willing to hear them. Thanks!

    It doesn't look like a tusk

    Im not sure what this is and would like some help figuring it out. It was found in Manatee county, FL where a new lake was being dug up. I did find half of a Gomphothere molar very close to it, but I also found anything from whale, meg, mammoth, sloth, horse, turtle etc. All around it. It's kinda flakey in some areas, but doesn't appear to be enamel. It has a flat surface and round... Maybe a mandible?? IDK

    I was recently given an Oreodont skull that someone had started but he gave up on it after breaking it into 5 pieces. One of my relatives who knows him was talking about how I’m into fossils and the guy just gives it to him so he gave it to me! So it’s my next project. Even though it’s not in the best shape I’m still excited to get it! I love prepping fossils even though I can only do it on my days off.

    The Daily Fossil Record

    Inspired to act by Jamie‘s @JamieLynn and their “fossil a day” thread. I been thinking about creating a digital visual catalogue of my collection for a long time now . Been very dyslexic this is a difficult task to undertake. After seeing Jamie’s thread I thought one fossil a day will just take a sort time to photograph, collate and post, making this more achievable task . I will also keep a digital copies for my records. Posting on the forum means that other members can see my small collection and help me if needed with incorrect IDs or names that have changed . The forum has been really
  15. Hello everyone, I discovered a mammal tooth from the Lower Miocene not far from Bordeaux (Aquitaine, Southwestern France). I've already had different opinions but nothing sure. I thought of cetacean, but terrestrial mammal was also discovered on the site. So I show you some pictures of this tooth to get your opinions and arguments for an identification (Cetacea or terrestrial mammal). I apologize for the imperfect quality of the pictures, I only have my phone to take pictures. Thanks in advance for your answers. Damien

    Old North Sea Mammal Collection

    I bought parts of an old collection a couple of years ago. It cotained a bunch of peices from the north sea. Some of the fossils came without tags and i would like to ask for some help identifying what type of species they might have came from. First of is this vertebra. As far as come with my own research im guessing woolly rhino?
  17. hi gang, So this item is up for sale at a site that I cannot name. It is labeled "Bone Valley mammal tooth". I am thinking cetacean, but the root is awfully compressed. Thoughts? It's about 3.5 )9cm) inches long. Cetacean tooth? thanks

    Brazos River Skull Chunk

    Found this strange little chunk of bone about two weeks ago on the Brazos and have had zero luck trying to identify it on my own. Nothing seems like an exact match. The complex series of holes and tube-like structures on the one side makes me think ear bone, and the suture markings lining the edges of the bone on the back side make me think skull fragment. Similarly, the thin raised area makes me think zygomatic process. My best guess would be something like the temporal bone on the back of a bison or horse skull, but I haven't been able to find much to make me sure of that ID. @Harry Pristis

    Help with mammal IDs

    One way to know you have a great fossil hunting site is that every time you go you get something that you have no clue what it could be. Today we went to our best creek for mammal fossils and had a great day. We got multiple known fossils, like horse, gator, and gar, but also many we did not recognize. On the first fossil, the texture reminds me of a gator osteoderm, so I was thinking some kind of gator bone. The second I think is a section of gator jaw, because of shape and texture. The 3rd I'm following the theme of gator and going with gator vert. The fourth has a bubbly texture, but I'm no

    Patella or Chunkosaur?

    Found on the Brazos River, mostly Pleistocene. My husband found this piece this week, and even though it shows a lot of wear, it seems to have retained most of its shape. Vaguely resembles a patella to me. Maybe equus? Any ideas, or is it too worn to tell?

    50 minute fossil hunt

    Today we went to a great spot we don't go often. The first 50 minutes were great, then it started raining,I can't imagine what I would have found if I got to stay a good 3 hours. We got two gator osteoderms, including the smallest one I've ever seen (below the large one) some gator teeth. Multiple mammal teeth (follow link below message to get to the ID message) horse frags, gar scales, turtle shell, and other weird fossils. Again, please go to the ID chat just to check if you can help.

    What type of tooth is this

    Found in the Peace River, the ripples in the enamel along with the width and length are off to me it's too short and wide to be horses from what I've seen.

  24. Hi everyone! I've been dabbling in Ice Age Mammal material and I'm having a hard time differentiating isolated bones between all the different large hairy and not hairy beasts we had back then, particularly in the South Central and South East U.S. Does anyone know any good id books that can help with that? Thanks!
