  1. I found this bone on a Tampa Bay Beach, Florida and the next week I found an identical one but left it. When I first scooped it out of the water I thought it was a molar from a manatee. After looking at it I saw it didn't have a root and was it a joint bone? From the weight and color I think it's modern but curious to find out what I found and what animal. (ruler is in inches) Any help or ideas welcome and appreciated.
  2. New Zealand Glacier possible mammal fossil

    Hey everyone, I got this interesting mammal bone piece (about 3 inches across) that was found in an area with a glacier and no live animals around. Could it have originated from within the glacier or is it a modern bone? What type of bone is it and what animal did it come from? Thanks everyone!
  3. Fossil identification

    This was also found on the beach in south Texas. Thank you!
  4. https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2019-03/ou-rrb031519.php https://www.app.pan.pl/archive/published/app64/app005682018.pdf
  5. I wanted to share some pictures from a recent trip to SW Florida. I grew up in FL but I didn’t do any fossil hunting until I moved to CA and found Shark Tooth Hill. I was really excited to get out and find some Florida fossils. Unfortunately, the Peace River was too high to hunt so we have to explore some smaller rivers that weren’t too flooded. That worked out for me because we found some great fossils! Some members of the forum were nice enough to show me around. I sent out a box of STH finds to my FL friends to get some fossil goodwill going. I think some of them were posted for ID in another thread. I really enjoyed what to me was easy digging in the Florida creeks, it was kind of hot out for February but the weather was great for being in the water. I was really surprised about the diversity of fossils found, at one point on the bank we found an area that had both land and marine fossils in the same layer. You could walk around and just pick cool stuff up. That is where I found the Giant Armadillo jaw section that won the fossil of the month. It was a nice contrast to STH where you tend to find the same type of fossils over and over. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
  6. Took a trip to a nearby mineral and gem shop that sometimes had fossils. To my delight, the shop owner showed me a sword made up of fossil bones. It's unclear what bones were used but the shop owner said it was probably mammalian, perhaps mammoth or something from the ice age. The sword was actually pretty durable and could be used as a weapon (at risk of breaking the fossils of course). Certainly the strangest fossil I've seen this year!
  7. La Brea Tar Pits Bone Fragment

    Here’s an interesting one. I docent at the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits, and while I was talking to some visitors one of them gave me a piece of bone fragment his father found (among many other easier to identify pieces) at the tar pits before the museum was created. I have showed to some of the researchers at la Brea, and their guess was that it was a tibia fragment from some mammal. So far based on my own comparisons, it seems closest to a dire wolf, but if anyone else has any other ideas, I’d love to hear them. Thanks!
  8. Wanted to Confirm this ID

    Hi all! I found this jaw section in Wyoming's White River fm. last year and was told it was likely from a dog (hesperocyon potentially). I wanted to confirm it with some of the people on the forum as there's not a lot left on it aside from part of a tooth, hopefully someone can affirm my hope that this piece actually belongs to a canid.
  9. Micro Bones

    From the album Judith River fm. Fossil Finds

    I have no idea what these tiny bones belong to. They could be bird, mammal, small reptile or an amphibian. These were found at the same microsite as the Troodon tooth. If you have any indication as to what these could be let me know.
  10. Florida jaw ID

    Hi all, I found this jaw section with the help of a friend on a trip to SW Florida last week. It was found on the bank of the creek with other land and marine fossils. Any ideas on what it came from? Thanks Jesse
  11. Mammal vert

    This may be a long shot. Can anyone I’d this vert I found on the Brazos River in Texas?
  12. Tooth ID from TX Gulf Coast

    Found this mammal tooth on the beach in Galveston. Any ideas what this tooth came from? Thank you.
  13. A claw from Hell Creek

    I bought this claw a little while ago, for close to nothing. Still waiting for the item to arrive. Not sure what it is from though. It was dug up in Hell Creek. The claw and bone measure about an inch in length in total. Anyone who would have a qualified guess?
  14. What teeth is this?

    Hello. Found this teeth in Sangiran, Java, Indonesia. Looks like omnivore teeth. Maybe wild boar. Any idea? The length measurement in the pic was in cm.
  15. Mammal tooth, Mastodon?

    Hey guys, I was thinking this was some sort of mastodon related baby tooth however I am now unsure. Right around 2" in diameter, 1.5" in width and maybe .75" in height. Thanks, corgi
  16. Bone from Holland. Mammoth?

    This bone fragment was sold as mammoth bone from holland. Is it actually mammoth or was that just a guess?
  17. I found these bones in north texas wilbarger county. They where in a gray clay about 20 feet down in a creek. Figure possible pleistocene. Large portion of the bones where together..except for the skull. Is it a bison calf or something else. Thanks for any input.the jaw is about 11 Inches
  18. Hi all It is my birthday today and I thought it would be really nice to celebrate with you all. I am looking forward to having an nice meal with Mrs Rico and maybe a beer or a movie later this evening. Just opened a couple of presents this morning and they are beauties. First up is from me to me, a collection of small Mammoth Bark/Ivory pieces from Siberia and the North Sea. They are definitely an welcome addition to my collector’s draws and now I have about six specimens form different locations. Now from Mrs R an really amazing gift of wonderment that has wowed me . A tiny fragment of skin from a herbivorous Hadrosaur species, from the Low- Upper Cretaceous of Judas River, Montana, USA. With some nice raised ellipsoid scales intact and visible. Even this small piece is stunning. I am really enjoying my birthday scores so far. I do also have a funny feeling I may have a couple of more specimens to post here later this evening when I get to open them . And of course Adam your slice of birthday cake is in the post mate. Cheers everyone.
  19. Fossil Mammal Skull ID

    Hi, I recently purchased this fossil on everyone's favorite auction site. The seller didn't know where it was found or of its provenance. I was thinking it could be by its size and teeth, however I would like input from others on the site. I've been collecting fossil for some time now and haven't seen anything like it. Thanks!
  20. Big vertebra

    My friend has found a lot of fossils, but he doesn't know what they are. This one is some sort of vertebra. My friend found it in south africa. (Scale in cm)
  21. Who's jaw is this

    One of my friends gave me this fossil. He said it came from south africa. Any idea as to whom it belongs?
  22. Peace river mammal tooth

    I found this in the peace river a while back, it’s worn and a bit beat but worth a shot I guess. I think it’s a mammal tooth of some kind
  23. What kind of tooth?

    I found this tooth many years ago in the loess formation near St. Francisville, Louisiana. I don't actually even know if it's a modern tooth or a fossil. since the area where the root would be has hollowed out, I guess that's what makes me think it might be modern?
  24. Mammal mandible IDs

    I have two mandibles from Asia probably Siberia that I need help IDing. #1 is a hair over 4" and the most complete tooth has a pointed premolar. #2 is 6 1/2" and all the teeth are complete besides the first molar. It looks very similar to some deer mandibles I have but the teeth are twice the height and half the width. Thank you for looking! #1
  25. Reindeer vertebra

    From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A reindeer, Rangifer tarandus, vertebra found on the Zandmotor, about 40'000 years old ("Mammoth-steppe" period, in the Late Pleistocene). It seems to have been bleached by the sun (most bones on the Zandmotor are darker than this).
