  1. I need some help. From my new pit location. Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, Comfort Member. A partial Marine Mammal? tooth with root. Archeocete? Sirinean? PPinned? @Boesse @Al Dente @siteseer
  2. Greetings, This is my first time posting here so I apologize if I don't get this quite right. I'm hoping to identify what I think may be a fossilized tooth. It looks to be a specialized tooth so I am assuming (perhaps wrongly) that it's mammalian in origin. It was found in an alluvial deposit on my land in Buncombe County, NC. I apologize that I am holding my find in several of these pictures; I couldn't work out a better way to get pictures of all sides. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Tooth ID

    Hi all, I’m sure this is an obvious one for some of you experts out there, I just haven’t come across a tooth like this one yet. There is still a bit of matrix on the chewing surface but it’s mostly prepped. I know many of you are out East so I don’t expect a species, but it’d be nice to at least find out the genus or kind of animal so I can research from there. thank you all as always!

    A very different bone

    Cool in the morning, but the sun was out and by noon just fabulous. When I picked this up, I did not recognize it as anything I had previously seen, and I have seen a lot of fossil bones. For a second, I was unsure that it was bone, but now I am pretty positive. Going hunting in the morning, so will be unable to read comments and suggestions until Sunday evening. Thanks for looking, Jack

    Florida sloth tooth need help for ID

    Hi everyone! Recently I have purchased these tooth but they just write as sloth. The location is North Florida. Pleistocene period. I know there are some sloth species there so could you help me to get a science name for these tooth? Thanks guys!

    Mammal bone in SE Texas

    I found this bone on a Colorado River bank in Southeast Texas in Wharton County. I don't know what it belongs to but it's pretty heavy and it definitely seems to be fossilized. I'm hoping someone can tell me what species it was a part of and how old it might be?

    Partial mammal lower jaw-Brule fm.

    Hello, I have just received this partial lower jaw, it is supposed to be from Leptomeryx evansi, but i have seen many skulls of L. evansi on the internet, and this doesn't look similar. It comes from the Oligocene of Orella member, Brule formation; South Dakota. I have got three questions; Who did this jaw belong to? What part of the jaw did these teeth occupy? Is that hole on the first photo normal? Or was made by an animal or disease? Thanks to everyone!
  8. 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.

    Florida Pleistocene ID’s

    Hey all! I have some peace river mammal teeth I’m looking for help with. I’m hoping someone more knowledgeable than myself can find something with these teeth. I know a couple aren’t great but hoping for the best! Thanks all! 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) The root on this one is super cool, seems like a wide root!

    White River fm. Mini Claw

    Hi everyone! I found this claw while anthill hunting on the White River formation of northeastern Colorado. It's about 6 mm in length and 4 mm tall. Honestly I'm not certain that it's a fossil, but if it is I'm really excited to have found it. My first guess is that it's a small bird, but it could very well be mammalian or reptilian. Any input is appreciated.

    Pocket Gopher Femur, SD

    Hi everyone, I was just browsing @PrehistoricFlorida's website and my eye was caught by what was labelled as a pocket gopher femur (trust me there were many more impressive fossils that caught my eye as well). Reason being, I found a very similar bone on a hunt in South Dakota's Hell Creek formation back in 2019. I kept it, hoping in my heart of hearts that it was fossilized, but keeping my expectations low. The rusty staining on the bone made me think there was a chance it was just a beautifully preserved Cretaceous limb bone, but I knew it was most likely recent. It's about 2.5 cm long and .

    Some teeth in jaw

    Fighting a sinus infection but made it out to the river today for a brief look. Southeast Texas gravel bar. Mostly Pleistocene, but older fossils are theoretically possible from exposures up river. Didn't find much since the river is up, but my most interesting find was this jaw fragment with some teeth intact. Since the biting surfaces are so worn, I'm having trouble with an ID. Is it possible to ID this based on tooth size/shape/location in the jaw? Or to at least narrow it down more so I can refine what type of teeth I should be comparing it to? Thank

    Mammal incisor ?

    Found in a small tributary creek in the Fort Worth area of Texas. The bedrock there is Woodbine formation, but I think some Pleistocene material shows up in these creeks. It looks fossilized to me.
  14. Fossil whale rostrum in large concretion at oregon coast. Mid miocene in age.

    I need help to id this jaw.

    I have been trying to figure out what animal this jaw came from, but it doesn't match with any animal that I know of from the badlands in South Dakota. I would appreciate any identification on this jaw, if it's only the family or order.

    Aguja mammal tooth

    As I continue to sift through my bag of micro matrix from the Aguja Formation, I came across this interesting little mammal tooth. It looks to me like an incisor but I suppose it could also be a canine. I am completely unfamiliar with Mesozoic mammals and I’m not even sure how far down this tooth is distinguishable, but I thought I’d post it anyway. Super excited as this is my first Mesozoic mammal tooth. Size: ~0.5cm Magnifier 20X from three different angles: Thanks for any information/resources you can point me to. As always, I deep

    Rhinoceros or buffalo ribbon?

    Hi folks! Recently I found a ribbon from a Paleolithic site which dating about 21000- 10000BP. As the size of this huge, I don’t know if it belongs to the rhinoceros buffalo? Note: I try to put together with the vertebrae of bison priscus from Europe (TH8 bone) and it bigger.
  18. Greetings, Found in Sarasota, Florida. Size is 1 inch/25.4mm tall and .5 inches/ 12.7mm wide. Looks like a bit of matrix is attached to the concave side of the object. Thank you, Marie

    Identification, mammal teeth

    Hello ! For my first post I want to show you some mammal teeth. I don't have a lot of informations about them, probably from North Africa. I don't know their age but all are mineralized so not that recent. I can add the sizes if it's very necessary. Some of them are very characteristics so I hope that an ID is possible. There are I think Rhinocerotidae, maybe Camelidae and others... I'm not good with mammal, all the infos are welcome ! Thanks for your help !
  20. Greetings all, I found this fossil near the flat parking area at what's left of the Ernst quarries. When I came across an image I took of it, I realized that based on the shape of the left end, that it might be an ulna from a small mammal, or? It has a shape that is somewhat similar (heel-looking section) to a mysticete, Tiphyocetus Temblorensis ulna, that I found at STH a couple of years ago. Or maybe it's just the remnant of of somebody's lunch from a couple of hundred years, the time it takes for something to fossilize (Joke)? I remember it was a fossil, so please t
  21. I went to the Zandmotor recently while visiting The Netherlands and wanted some clarity on some of my finds. I found a number of shells, two fish vertebrae, and two different mammalian bone fragments. This, however, is all I can make of any of them, and would appreciate more specific ID's if anyone out there knows. The shells should be middle Pleistocene (if they're not actually recent shells lol), and everything else (likely) late Pleistocene. Thank you! Fish Verts: Perhaps not fossil-- Baltic Macoma? Not sure about this eithe

    Baby t-Rex or close relative

    Baby t-Rex (or close relative) fossilized into metal; this is one of my best finds, it is the complete body of a male baby t-Rex? animal who has a second unknown animal, a dog-like creature with a mammal face, gripped fiercely in its jaws. There is no separating the two fossils and who would ever want to. Both animals have been fossilised or petrified into an Iron/PMG/Gold metal alloy material – a very heavy, durable, and extremely hard compound that has preserved the specimens in fine life-like detail. The specimen was collected in Africa and was freed from solid rock by blasting to build a r

    Peace River Canine

    Hey there! I was visiting the Peace River this year for my bday with my husband, and we came across some awesome fossil hunters. We’d never hunted the Peace, and were totally unprepared. Fortunately, the group we stumbled upon were super nice. They had sifters to spare and beers to share. They not only made my birthday, but also gave me this tooth. I can tell it’s a canine, but not sure what it’s from. Any thoughts? Tooth is just shy of 3/4”. Thanks very much!! Lauren
  25. Found this tooth along the river, it definitely looks fossilized, but I’ve never heard people finding land mammal fossils here.
