  1. Hi everyone! This print is found on a concretion--no idea how old, or where it originated from; it was purchased in a specialty shop in Sedona AZ many years ago. It wasn't until just recently I noticed what appears to be a footprint w/4 digits; sharp claws. almost looks like maybe the outer surface might have flowed a bit over the print (?) What do you think? Am I just seeing circus animals in the clouds? I keep trying to upload images that really show the details, but keep getting bumped, even though I'm below the 3.95 MB.
  2. Mio/Plio unknown

    There is a spot relatively close to me that is a late Miocene/ early Pliocene deposit. Consisting mainly of Great White teeth, marine mammal chunks, with occational (but rare) Meg. tooth pieces. Being a secondary deposit, everything in it got beat up and water worn pretty good. I was going through a box of bone pieces and grabbed this out for I'D. I was thinking inner ear bone? What are your views on this?
  3. Found a small 1" long bone recently along Calvert Cliffs. In the pic it's the small bone just under the small lower cowshark tooth. Wondering if this is either a land mammal toe bone or a possible toe bone from a bird? Daryl.
  4. Any ideas?

    Howdy gang! Found this a while back at Brownie's Beach in MD. I just refound it last night, LOL. I'm assuming its from a mammal, but after that, I'm stumped. Any ideas?
  5. Hello from a newbie in Central New York. I would appreciate it if anyone could identify the fossil in the attached photograph. I believe it is a tooth, but have not been able to find it on the internet. It has very complex, repeating stages in its structure. Thanks for any guidance on this! Norm
  6. Coelodonta antiquitatis 1st Dorsal Vertabra

    From the album Mammal Fossils

    Coelodonta antiquitatis (Blumenbach, 1799) The first dorsal vertabra of a Woolly Rhino. Location: North Sea, Netherlands Age: Late Pleistocene

    © Olof Moleman

  7. This fossil was dug up fishing recently in Kankakee County, Illinois, where the bedrock is Silurian, but this fossil would have to be Pleistocene. Any help with ID is appreciated. I do not have possession so these are the only photos I have. If you provide an ID, please provide your reasoning. Thanks!
  8. Horse Ancestor Teeth

    Hi All, I've found 2 horse teeth in Hillsborough county, Florida that seem to be too small to be equus. The first one is badly damaged but I'm thinking it's a merrychippus species, the second I think is a nannippus species. Any help on identifying them would be greatly appreciated as well as any tips on better ways to ID them than staring at dozens of sketches of horse teeth.
  9. pleistocene vertebra

    Here's a small vertebra found on the Brazos River in SE Texas in pleistocene gravel. It has some matrix adhering to it which may mask important features. Hoping some of you can recognize it.
  10. mammal tooth id

    A friend of mine found this tooth on the Brazos River and wanted me to try for an id. I have some ideas, but don't want to influence opinions. It measures 1 5/8 inches long and the crown length is 9/16in. Thanks!
  11. Big Miocene/Oligocene Mammal Jaw????

    I bought this jaw at a fossil show and the only info that came with it was "Badlands USA". The matrix looks Miocene Arikaree to me and not Oligocene but I'm not sure of course. Any information from a mammal/tooth collector will be appreciated. I have an idea of what it might be but I don't want to say anything until I hear from you all. Thanks, Mikey
  12. Mole Tooth Fragment

    Fragment of M3 from a talpid (cf. Myxomygale sp.) collected through screen washing of matrix from the White Band.
  13. Anthracothere Mandible

    Partial crushed left mandible from the anthracothere Bothriodon collected from the Bouldnor Formation in two pieces. The first collected ex-situ on the 29/01/18, and the second on 13/02/18. P2 to M3 in-situ. P1 and M2 missing.
  14. Mammal Teeth

    Here are a few Maryland horse teeth and other critters from mostly Brownies beach.
  15. my sloth- Thalassocnus

    As my whale family is nearly complete now I went looking for other marine tetrapods. (and big fish by the way). I had for some time included Thalassocnus, the unbelievable swimming sloth of Miocene Peru in my to do list. Really fourlegged tetrapods are quite a lot of work compared with the highly reduced whales, so I was glad when I realized that the Megaterium made by geoworld was more or less my scale when seen as a big Thalassocnus of 3.3 meters. It finally arrived the day before yesterday, and today I spent some hours making it look more seagoing. I lengthened the snout, smoothed the skull and jaw. sawed out the intercostal spaces and made the limbones less bulky. The spinal processes are pointing more backwards now. (or at least their edges are) I am positively surprised how well this cheap model turned out after only few hours of work. Aloha J
  16. Gomphotherium tooth?

    Proboscidea tooth from indonesia. I can sure this is proboscidea tooth (even no enamel) but i can't sure what species's tooth. I guess this is Gomphotherium tooth. Is it right? thanks for your help.
  17. What is this fossil tooth from Dakota? Found in the 1980's, the location is not know, perhaps from near Belle Fourche, Butte County, South Dakota, USA.
  18. Take a look of this "complete" skeleton from the famous Hezheng, Gangsu of China. Any idea what is that? Can you see what is wrong with this fossil? I also attach photos of a typical fossil excavation site there.
  19. Rodent Cheek Tooth

    Cheek tooth from the theridomyid rodent Isoptychus sp. Collected through screen washing of matrix from the 'White Band' a shallow freshwater lacustrine horizon.
  20. long mammal bone

    This may be a long shot but I have faith in the mammal experts here. This bone is about 17 inches long and 5 inches wide at it's longest and widest measurements. I found it on the Brazos River in SE Texas. Unfortunately both ends are broken off leaving little diagnostic material, but I'm hoping based on size and morphology of what's left someone can offer an id. It's heavily mineralized. Thanks!
  21. mammal femur

    I've browsed the gallery of @Harry Pristis without success. This femur measures 9 inches long. The proximal end is about 2.25 inches along the longest line and the distal is at 2.5 inches. Found on the Brazos River in Texas. My guess is deer. Thanks for looking!
  22. Rappahannock creek bone

    Hopefully someone who knows bones can help. Apologize in advance for the cellphone pictures, but will try for more if needed. Thanks in advance for your help. Found a roughly four inch bone piece with a socket joint (maybe gnawed a bit) at one end and a seemingly hollow end (sand packed, but heavy for its size). One side has five clear keels (tendon attachments?) running length-wise; never noticed on other bones. On the opposite side there is a fine ridge that splits in two, and into three, with a much stronger protruding edge near the joint. While most of the edge on the side near this protruding edge is smooth and rounded, the opposite side has a n edge running the length of the bone.
  23. Another vertebra ID: is it bison?

    This is from China. Any thoughts on the species? It looks like bison to me, but I'm no expert. Could be equine. Heck, could be a wooly rhino for all I know. Any thoughts from those who know more than I?
  24. I found this fossil "oreodont skull" online, and can´t really decide if it is real or not... It looks a little bit plastic/glossy, but can´t that be some kind of treatment too?
  25. Large Mammal Rib

    Excellent day to hunt. It is warm and going to get colder over the next few days. We are finding small shark teeth and a lot of mammal materials. Up comes this rib.. at the base , it is 4.5 inches in circumference and half moon in shape, Flat on one side, curved on the other. This rib says something about the mammal, much larger than human, much smaller than mammoth or mastodon, etc.. There are only so many choices in the Peace River.. What mammal has a rib like this?
