  1. Fossils from South Texas

    I have two fossils I was given by a family member when I was a kid that I believe were “surface finds” finds from South Texas. A local museum curator said they were from some kind of a mammal. Can anyone tell me what these are from and what part of the animal they are? One is a socket joint and the other is triangular in cross section.
  2. Hi I hope you are well. I need your help to identify this vertebra, I bought it in a garage sale in San Antonio, TX, it was covered with sediments that I peel out. Thank you for your help.
  3. Partial mammalian tooth?

    I have been a long time follower of the fossil forum but this is my first post. A good friend of mine found this at the rock pile at the Rice Museum here in the Portland Oregon area. My friend is confined to a wheelchair so this location where hounds drop off rocks collected from "who knows where" is perfect for him. Anyway my buddy knows I've collected vertebrate fossils for from all over Oregon for decades and was delighted when I said was wasn't positive about what it was. So I'm coming to all of you. The specimen is approximately 4cm x 5cm x 2cm. It's heavy, definitely mineralized, looks mildly water worn, and has tooth-like structure. My best guess is that it is mid root area of a large segmented tooth. Without any crown portions present, that's as far as I'm willing to go. What say you?
  4. Fossil bone?

    Hi! I have what I believe to be a fossil bone. I'm guessing it's a bone due to its structure, and not just a rock, and I'm guessing it's a fossil and not modern because it appears to have mineralized. Location of find is Parke County, Indiana just outside of Rockville. Whatever its back story, unfortunately when I found it, it was resting alone in topsoil, and I found it while walking in my horse pasture (which I understand is a huge red flag, but it is not, as far as I can tell, a rock or modern bone). It's possible we unearthed it, because we had spent a couple years uprooting a pasture full of multiflora rose, so its resting state had already been disturbed before I found it. It's been on a shelf for the last 15-20 years, so my recollection of how rocky the soil was where I found it may be hazy. I have several photos to post. Please let me know if you need more or better ones. Anyway, thanks for your help in advance. David Kite
  5. Odd Mammal Tooth

    This was the first tooth I found on the day I spent on the white river formation in eastern Wyoming this past summer. I found a number of other small teeth and jaw sections from Leptomeryx, and small oreodonts along with what I believe to be a piece of canid jaw. However the identity of this tooth's owner has eluded me thus far. Any input would be appreciated.
  6. Hello beloved forum. I could use help on a mammal incisor ID for a friend: they don't have any info on the location, other than that it is domestic to the States, unfortunately. I've ruled out Giant Beaver, and I assume it's not a baby mammoth tusk (there appears to be a slight 'bulge' in the middle). Any advice would be deeply appreciated. Please see pictures.
  7. A bird or a mammal bone ID ?

    Hi guys ! Can anyone help me out with this ? I found two days ago at my Marl stone Quarry a bone and I don't know if it's from a mammal or from a bird? The lake as you know is from the Miocene epoch.I will send you pics now,it's quite small bone....It looks like metacarpal or metatarsal bone to me..
  8. Unknown Skull ID help

    Hello everyone, new member here! We recently started boxing up my childhood home to ready it for a sale and I discovered a long forgotten box that had a few fossils that my grandmother obtained during her ongoing 91 years on this earth. Almost all I believe were obtained by digs she went on around North America and chances are she obtained this one in the midwest. Most had tags like fish, mammoth tusk shard, and part of a deer jaw. I couldn't find an ID for this one, and upon asking my grandmother she hasn't the faintest idea because it's been decades and her mental state is slipping. If you need any more pictures of any sides let me know, my hand is only there to hold the two halves together, because unfortunately it hasn't survived in one whole piece. It measures about 160 mm. Another clue, but she did majority of her digs in Nebraska I believe. I'll have to Split up my posts with the pictures, I apologize.
  9. Coprolites From Florida

    I was browsing the Forum and came across an excellent (Jan 25, 2018) post by @GeschWhat listing some characteristics of coprolites. Unhappily, Lori did not provide illustrations. I want to quote her list later. I have here a few coprolites from different rivers, including the Peace River. I'll post some images, and let you judge how well these specimens fit Lori's list of characteristics. This one (two images) is from the Peace River: This one (two images) is from the Suwannee River, a bear-dog site: This one (two images) is from the Peace River: This one (two images) is from the Peace River: Report post I don't subscribe to the 'lick test,' and Lori has heard all of the scatological jokes by now, so let's get down to serious 'business.' Feel free to provide further illustration or commentary on the identification of coprolites.
  10. I've bee looking around at different vertebrae but cannot seem to find a match any ideas? A rough guide in the right direction as to what it looks like it could be from? ventral to dorsal measurment are 12mm anterior to posterior is 15mm and lateral left to right side is 21mm Thanks in advance.
  11. Always on the Lookout....

    I am on my way to late afternoon Doctor appt, but I am always on the lookout for LARGE TEETH.... I took this photo thru my pickup window... so, large teeth == YES!, mammal = YES !!!.. maybe, fossilized ... well maybe not... Happy Halloween,
  12. Jaw bone - Onion Creek TX

    My husband and I found some really great fossils in Onion Creek just east of Austin, TX today. Many of the usual gastropods but also some mammalian bones including a jaw with teeth intact. Welcoming any help with IDs here. Let me know what angle or side would be helpful if I failed to get the shots necessary to narrow it down. Many thanks!

  14. Bone piece from the Banjaard

    Hi everyone, I found this bone piece on the Banjaard beach in Zeeland, Netherlands. It is most likely Pleistocene in age, but could be a little older. Seeing the structure in the inside I think it's part of the skull of some kind of big mammal, but I'm not completely sure. Do you guys agree with cranium piece? Any clues as to which animal it might have belonged? Let me know if more pictures are needed. Thanks in advance, Max
  15. Tooth (?) from Zeeland

    Hi all, When I saw this specimen on the beach of Banjaard (in Zeeland, Netherlands), I picked it up thinking it was just a small piece of bone with a weird shape. But now that I've been looking at it more closely I am almost completely convinced that it is in fact a worn out tooth from some kind of mammal (perhaps dolphin or seal?). There are some small bits of enamel left on the (thinner; right side on the first photos) tip of the tooth. The Banjaard beach has mostly Pleistocene stuff, but older things can wash up occasionally (the same day I found a Pliocene and an Eocene shell, so there's a real mix of stuff). So this tooth has a possible age of pretty much the whole Neogene. I tried to capture the enamel bits on camera but it's pretty difficult. This is my best attempt, hopefully it is good enough to see the separation between normal bone and enamel. Do you guys think it is possible to say anything more about this little fossil? Thanks in advance, Max
  16. Mammal vertebra from the ZM

    Hi all, I found this fossil vertebra near the Zandmotor (Netherlands) last weekend. It's from the last Ice Age, late Pleistocene (around 40'000 years old). There is the possibility that it is middle Pleistocene (around 600'000 years old), but that possibility is very slim. So it's (most likely) a fossil vertebra from one of the typical megafaunal Ice Age critters that roamed Europe alongside the mammoths, woolly rhino's, etc. For now, I am thinking it could be from some deer species, but I am really not sure. What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance, Max
  17. This is a recent find on a sandbar where I find land and sea fossils. Reminds me of a human fibula, but I really have no idea. I also found 3 turkey verts, sea turtle fragments and shark teeth on the same day. This looks like it will be easily identifiable, but can provide more info if needed. Thank you for any help you can give me. Holocene- Silver Bluff Back Barrier Complex: Georgia Coast near Savannah
  18. Just got back from the Orlando Fossil Fair 2018, I bought some nice fossils but many were not identified and I want to confirm ID's for ones that were. There's a lot of fossils so I'll label each one with information and my own opinon on them. All the fossils shown are allegedly carnivores and found in the Suwannee River in Florida (excluding two of them). The furthest on the left will be #1, and the furthest on the right will be #4. I'm not convinced that 1 is a carnivore but besides that I don't have any hypothesis on what the others could be. The left one in this picture is 5, the one on the right is 6. Five reminds me of a bear, and I don't have any idea what 6 is or if it's even a carnivore. The tooth will be 7 the jaw will be 8, both are allegedly dire wolves (they're not associated) from 'Northern Florida', I don't have an exact locality unfortunately. I suspect these both belong to dire wolves. The furthest left will be 9, and the furthest right is 11. I suspect 9 and 10 to be racoon teeth, but I'm not sure if racoons are found in the Suwannee river. At first I thought 11 was a canid, but after looking at it for awhile it looks more like a feline. This last specimen will be 12, right now I'm stuck between a primitive canid (possibly leptocyon) a feline, or some sort of fox. This specimen was also found in the Suwannee, like the rest except the dire wolves. If you need more pictures I can take some and post them within the hour. Thanks in advance!

  20. White River Astragalus

    I found this little astragalus with PaleoProspectors in Wyoming in late July of this past summer. It was found during the day spent on a ranch with White River Formation Oligocene exposures. I was wondering what animal it belonged to. Leptomeryx? Poebrotherium? some sort of oreodont?
  21. Made it to NSR yesterday, managed a nice haul. Was a bit hazardous in the rain, but the isolation was nice. Wondering especially about the plate, but any knowledge dropped on me is always appreciated!
  22. Hi all! Decided to bring out the kayak on this windy Maryland day and it was another amazing hunt although and my arms are definitely suffering. Unfortunately didn't find anything too great but did find an unusual piece of something I've never seen or found before. Of course like every leaf, shell, or rock it could just be an incredibly suggestively shaped piece of nothing but I think it's some sort of mammal tooth possibly or maybe some type of fish tooth? Comparing it to the seal/peccary online it looks similar but just not enough to convince me so I thought I'd ask the experts! It's from the Calvert formation of the Chesapeake Group which is early Miocene: For size reference: Close up: From below: Thanks and I apologize for the blur I guess that's what you get with a clip on magnifier on a cell phone camera
  23. Fossil ID help - Savannah

    Found this vertebra its about 3 inches long. I'm thinking maybe dolphin? If anyone has any idea what it belonged to? Thanks!
  24. Hi! Its been awhile since I posted. I found this vertebra near Tybee Island in the Savannah River. Its about 6 inches long and 3 inches thick. Anyone has any idea what it might have belonged to? Thanks !
