  1. Meganeura

    Peace River vertebrae

    So I forgot to ask for an ID on this yesterday - but anyone know what kind of vert this is? If you can name the animal even better - but I’m mostly looking for caudal/cervical/lumbar/thoracic, etc. found a few with this same shape but none as nice as this one.

    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
  3. Hi guys. I found this near Charleston, SC a while back. probably in the Edisto, but I honestly can't remember. It has been in a bucket of miscellaneous fossils for about two years. Anyway, I can't figure out what animal this might have come from. I hope one of you all can help. Thanks a million.

    Mammal tooth ID needed. Cretaceous-JRF

    Hello, I have a number of Cretaceous aged mammal teeth that I would like to ID. Here is one I found recently in the JRF of Montana. I have a hard time taking pics of small teeth but I hope these are good enough for someone to ID it. Thanks for any help! It is about 3 mm wide.

    Long bone

    I’m posting this for a friend. He found it on the Brazos River in Southeast Texas. It seems too long and robust to be horse or bison. My initial thought is mammoth or mastodon tibia. Unfortunately, the distal and proximal ends are missing. Any other thoughts? I can get more photos from him if necessary. Thanks!

    Canine tooth ID

    Any ideas on what this canine tooth could be from? It’s 1.75” in length and from Manatee county, FL

    Is this a fossilized tooth?

    I recently found a few fossil mammal bone fragments near Cape Town along the beach, and then I came across this strange object. I thought it resembles a large mammal tooth but I’m not sure if it is a fossil or not, if so what is it?
  8. 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.
  9. Dear fellow forum members, I am going through old boxes, in this case with some of my rare own finds (as opposed to bought, gifted and inherited fossils) These I found at a coast of the mediterranean, where the waves gnawed at soft sandstone. On a ledge below the fossiliferous layer there where fragments and some intact shells with and without remaining matrix, and this tooth, without, but weathered and feeling heavy. The shells I could identify (Diodora, Arca) do have living species, Diodora goes back to the Miocene, not sure about the others. So the age could be miocene t
  10. Like the title says. It was found along the river on a gravel/sand bar. It's Mammals and heavy so definitely mineralized.

    Eight North Sea bone fragments

    Hi all. These are eight bone fragments that I found a couple of years ago on the beach near the Zandmotor, the Netherlands. I realize that most (if not all) of these fragments probably are impossible to id, but any information would be great. Some additional pictures of fragment 1: Number two has a tiny whole (foramen) in it. Here is an extra photo of the top of the fragment: And some more pictures of fragment three: Number 6 at first sight appears to be part of some kind o

    Small badenian mammal tooth

    Hello, I have found this small mammal tooth when I was looking for some shark teeth (in the same layer). It looks like a little jewel Could you please help me with the identification? Location: southern middle Slovakia, age: badenian. Scale is in mm. Thank you in advance.

    Badlands jaws (carnivore?)

    Hello, I purchased a huge box of Badlands mammal stuff a while ago and was able to identify mostly everything. I had some trouble with these two jawbones, though. I'm not really expecting them to be anything surprising but it would help me to put a definite label on them. in both the teeth looked a little like an amphicyonid's but that might just be wishful thinking! Thanks again! #1 #2: For scale

    Large bone chunk

    I’m hoping someone can recognize what this chunk of bone might be from. It must be something large like Proboscidean or sloth. The sutures are making me think it’s a chunk of skull. The concave side might be an alveolus for tusk?

    Camel tooth?

    Found washed out from a river bank in Northern Alberta. I was thinking camel to be the best match but looking for a second opinion.
  16. Found these in eastern NC river this weekend and could use some help identifying. It was in an area most likely Yorktown , found among great white teeth, a horse tooth, tilly bones, whale bone and some shell fragments. Lot of reworked material in the gravel. This item looks like the bones of the front of a lower jaw to me but these holes off to the sides confuse me - they are rounded inside like a tooth or tusk might have sat in them but the angles are odd - I could be wishful thinking here - just seemed out of the ordinary to me. Then the other is a bone it’s much lighter and the p

    FL Fossil Tooth ID Needed

    Hello everyone. I'm sure this is easy for the more experienced, but I need help with this tooth from a Florida Riverbed in the USA. Thank you! Probably a mammal from the Pleistocene, is that correct? Thanks again.
  18. This was found in the Pliocene marine Pico Formation of Southern California. I'm leaning towards a marine mammal but I'm not even sure if this is bone or part of an echinoid test.
  19. G'day, I found the following specimen among the stones while walking on the beach of Mesnil-Val (Criel-sur-Mer, Seine-Maritime, France) at low tide, below the cliff. Although I do not know much about the geology of this location, I have heard that you can find fossils here. Nonetheless, this piece was more likely left by the sea, I think. Neither do I know what it is, nor how old it is. Due to the inner structure I am thinking of a partial mammal bone, but it might be the wrong direction. Not sure how exactly a washed up recent bone looks like. This specimen is worn on the outer sur

    Any ideas on this vertebrae?

    Any ideas on identification on this rather massive vertebrae? This was roughly three miles up river from FM 60 on the Brazos. No useful context. It was just sitting on a sandbar.

    Jaw section from a very large mammal

    I thought this might have a good chance of getting identified because of the unusual shape of the tooth sockets. parts of the teeth still remain in the sockets. Found in north of Central Nebraska. Miocene. @Harry Pristis
  22. Hi Everyone, We came across another mammal molar in our sifter this weekend. This one is pretty interesting looking and we’re looking for some more help on an ID. Thanks, John

    ID help please

    Hi all! It has been a long time since i have made a post here, as i have not been out and about fossil hunting too much. Any ideas on this Fossil bone? Not looking for a specific species, genus would be great though. Miocene to early pliocene. Thanks

    Mammal tooth ID help

    Hi Everyone, looking for some ID help on this tooth. Unfortunately there is no root. It came from a lag layer that contains mostly Miocene and some Eocene materials. Thanks, John
