    ID help please, Peace River

    Crown measures 10.7mm. The small size confuses me. Is it possibly from a baby? I’ve researched but am just getting more confused. I know it’s a brachydont but that’s as far as I’m getting. Baby pig? Baby bear? Opossum? I found it in someone’s discard pile! I haven’t found a tooth like this yet and am excited to have found it in the jaw thanks in advance! @Meganeura @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis

    Mammoth Lunar?

    With all this talk about carpals lately, I decided to take a second look at this un-ID'd carpal I found a while back. Of all the larger fauna I've looked at, it seems to best resemble the mammoth lunar, but it's not nearly as robust as my other mammoth carpals or several of the examples I've seen online. Maybe juvenile? Just checking to see if there are other possibilities I may be missing. Thanks! @Meganeura @Harry Pristis @JohnJ @Shellseeker

    ID for chinese mammal teeth

    Hello friends, This week I received the following specimens and I would like to know which creature they belonged to. A) Bovine (?) B)...... (?) C) Equine (?) I look forward to your responses, you are the best!

    Peace River Florida Teeth

    Any help would be appreciated
  5. Hello everyone Wanted to share one of the many things that have me stumped. The hunting spot is from dredged material from the river that has been deposited on a man-made island that has a mix of Miocene and Pleistocene era fossils. This looks like it is made of enamel and doesn't have any porous fossil bone structure that I can see. It looked at first like a very worn bit of a small plate of mammoth tooth enamel. It has what appears to be a peak and valley on part of the crown on the occlusal/top side (possibly a plate tubercle?). It is completely flat on one side and has a slig

    mammal fossil?

    Hi, I have found a fossil? which i couldn't find out what animal it came from. It looks like from a horse but I'm not sure, so i need some help, please. I found it at the East Coast of England, Shotley Gate beach near Harwich.

    Need help with a Mammal bone ID

    Not only do I not know which critter this came from but I also I don’t know which bone it is. Getting a proboscidean or rhino feel. Any help appreciated. Most likely Miocene, found in North Central Nebraska.
  8. Dear Fellow Fossil Fanatics, I just had a great day at Big Brook, found some shark teeth but also 3 specimens that I am not sure at all what to make of. Any insights would be awesome! Best, Huttner

    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

    Sacrum vert - Peace River

    Hey everyone! Found this sacrum vertebra last weekend. It measures 4.3 inches/109mm x 2.5 inches/63mm. I know it’s mammalian, I know it’s a sacrum vert, and I know it’s from a somewhat larger animal, but that’s about it. Any further direction or IDs would be awesome! @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis @Brandy Cole

    Mammoth or Mastodon vertebrae?

    Was in Florida for a long weekend so I spent some time in the Peace River near Arcadia, Fl and picked this up. By size and basic shape it seems like a mastodon or mammoth vertebrae, but I haven't been in the area enough to tell and granted it’s very worn. Thoughts?
  12. These were all found in southeastern Oklahoma. I find these occasionally while working in rivers. These were found in a sand bed river. I just want to be able to put a face to these teeth. I have several other shark teeth that I have found in the same area, but will hold off on posting for now. Thanks a lot!
  13. Hi all, Back again with a new ID request. Found a mammal bone in the surf of Asbury Park, NJ (USA); this area overlies and regularly exposes fossils from the Kirkwood formation which is known to have been a near-shore marine environment laid down during the early Miocene. The surf also occasionally reveals Pleistocene mammal bones as well as those of modern animals (have found bone bits and crab parts at various stages of fossilization for reference which makes it difficult to decide what's Neogene and what's Quaternary). My initial hunch was that this was a worn marine

    Possible Mammal Fossil

    I found this piece last weekend in a creek off of the Trinity River just north of Huntsville Texas. Initially I thought it was a piece of stone but it has some interesting grooves and looking at the texture compared to other stones from the creek makes me think it is fossilized bone, and size makes me think a good sized mammal. It's at least partially mineralized (based on feel and weight), but eroded from the water and I would guess it is part of a join but I'm not sure what it is from, any ideas?

    Very small leg bone

    Any ideas on this one? Should be Miocene like the rest of the stuff in my area. Nice little well preserved bone. Found in North Central Nebraska.
  16. Being a person who focuses on Dinosaurs found this simplified Mammal family tree illustration very interesting. John does state that multituberclate lineage is missing. Hey we are on that tree at least for now. Posted by the John Hawks

    Need help with peace river IDs

    Some fossils found at the peace river last weekend. I am wondering if 1 is a giant tortoise spur and if 2 is part of a giant tortoise shell. in the second picture my best guesses are: 3. vertebrae, 4. crocodilians tooth, 5. stingray part?, 6. maybe a fish scale, 7. originally just thought was a weird bone fragment but maybe a tooth
  18. Largemouth Bass

    Bison molar?

    From the Potomac River in the Northern Neck area. This is my first complete terrestrial mammal tooth, so I'm curious! It is around 2.5 cm long.
  19. Found this very lovely little tooth in my Aguja Formation matrix (Brewster Co. of Texas) and while the root makes me think mammal, I'm not sure what to make of it. @ThePhysicist I saw you posted a Metatheria which looks very very similar, so am wondering if it is the same critter?

    Found this today at Amelia island to me it looks like a small mammal incisor, any thoughts? Thanks!

    Mammal Skull?

    Ok, last time I post here for a while I swear! At least until I go on another hunting trip... Anyways so I stopped by my mother's today after work and I was talking to her and my stepfather about my newfound passion for hunting & collecting fossils when it turns out that my stepfather had been holding out on me this whole time! After a bit of rummaging around he presented me with this, and even said that I could keep it! He said that he had been given it by a customer of his back when he worked delivering water. The customer a nice older man had found it in his backyard

    Backyard item #1 Mammal rib?

    I’ve been hanging around this forum for a while, and now that I’ve officially joined, I’m gonna start by going through my years’ fossil accumulations, particularly the ones that came from my backyard creek (The Portal) and see if I can’t get them them all correctly IDed. Maybe I’ll call it the Backyard Project, if anyone wants to follow along. So here’s the first item: I hope the picture quality is decent enough. It is about three cm long and one cm wide. I’m very sure it is a bone, and given the long thin shape of it I can only think rib. After a bit of searching the only close

    Mississippi Pleistocene Jaws

    These are from the Pleistocene of Mississippi
  24. Greetings everyone, Found this bone on the Maasvlakte beach in the Netherlands. Based on the location, probably Pleistocene, but could also be Holocene or Pliocene. It looks like a metapodial, and based on size and shape I was thinking maybe carnivore. An expert was able to tell me that it could be carnivore (or maybe beaver), and that it probably belonged to a young animal (since the outer layer of compact bone is really thin). I've been spending hours comparing this fossil to metapodials of all kinds of carnivores (and Castor fiber) matching this location, but I still c

    ID of fossil bone cut by humans?

    After learning about the burn test, I tried this bone that I was skeptical of after learning that my coyote jaw was a modern bone. After the test this fossil did not smoke or turn black, so I am more confident that it isn't a regular bone. It looks to be a fossilized leg or wrist bone of some sort, and there are visible cut marks on the bone. It appears to have been fairly cleanly cut off, which was another reason I was worried about its age. I don't have the whole bone to go off of but it measures 10.5 cm to the longest point where the joint area is, 1.9 cm wide at the narrow end, and 2.5 cm
