  2. 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?
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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 !
  7. Mammal Jaw Fragment

    I obtained this mammal jaw at the Colorado School of Mines Geology Garage Sale a couple of years ago in a box of rocks that had been detached from their labels and so lost much of their scientific value. That made the box of rocks cheap, but it means that I am on my own to figure out what all of it is and have no location information at all. I am hoping that someone on here will maybe recognize it enough to steer me in the right direction for even a higher taxonomic level identification. I am more than happy to provide photographs from any additional angles that would be helpful so please just ask! Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!
  8. Miocene Mystery Mammal Vertebra

    Miocene, probably mammal bone. Hoping for some clue to the animal. Doesn't look like a piece of cetacean vertebra, but obviously has the hole for the spinal cord. HELP!!!!
  9. Sculpture Venture

    In the next week I have some time off work and i've been thinking about having a go at making a clay sculpture. Still undecided what subject matter to use. Doren has given me some helpful advice: an obscure creature from the ancient past, or a transitional animal, both great suggestions, but i'm still open to more specific ideas. So, please post me some images of the weird and wonderful. My clay is ready to go on Monday, and I will post some pictures of what I end up making however it turns out, even if it looks like my dog has made it.
  10. Hello guys. I recently bought this potoroo jaw fragment. It came from naracoorte with permission from the owners at the time . I was just wondering what age it would most likely roughly be and what did potoroos look like at the time. I believe it would be from the pleistocene period, correct? Length of fossil is roughly 1.7cm
  11. Hello, I found this worn bone fragment in SW Florida and it has some distinct marks, separating it from my typical tumbled bone. It's approximately 2 1/2" x 1". It has 2 raised areas on one side and what appears to be a worn down tooth surface on the tip or enamel?? Hopefully these marks will be enough to ID. Thanks guys & Gals!
  12. lance formation teeth

    I found these two going through some Lance formation (late cretaceous) matrix from Wyoming. The first (2 views) is a mammal tooth 1.9mm long and I am just showing it because I am proud of it. The 2nd, 4 views, looks like a mammal molar on one side (the side with the wavy lines similar to a rodent molar), but not necessarily on the other sides. I arbitrarily named two sides top and bottom but they may not be that. Any idea what the 2nd fossil is? The hash marks are 1mm. Thanks.
  13. Guys (and Girls), I know I have seen a specimen similar to this one somewhere but cant remember where... Can you guys take a look? Thanks Alex
  14. I was shark tooth hunting and found this fragment on Casey Key, Florida 9 years ago. I recently went through my stuff and found 3 pieces of Mastodon Tooth Enamel. So I'm not sure if it's too small to ID but has a interesting wood grain pattern with enamel on the top. Can you ID it? Thanks FF!
  15. Florida Mammal vertebrae

    I took flyer on this vertebrae because it was inexpensive. The only location information I have is that it was found in Florida. It is 1.64 inches long. Anybody have any idea what it might be from?

  18. Is this a bone?

    Is this a bone? Of which animal? It's a little heavy, weighing 40 grams. The maximum length is 70 millimeters; the thinnest section is 15x30mm. Maybe not a fossil, but I am curious. Found it in Algarve, Portugal (miocene, I guess). I would also ask you to please advise me how to preserve it. Shall I varnish it? Thank you.
  19. My little collection

    I finally got a nice bookcase to display my collection that has grown over the years. The only problem is that it is already full. Just wanted to share with you guys and see what you all think
  20. Big Brook mammal jaw with teeth in it

    I had a great day today sifting with my mom. We started at Ramanessin but the finds were far and few between so we switched to big brook. I found this in one of my last sifter fulls. It was sitting right on top after I sifted the sand out. I was wondering if this is most like Pleistocene or more modern and what kind of animal it might be. Thanks!
  21. Found in South Manatee County in an aggregate pit. Thank you!
  22. Seal tooth

    So a while back, like a year and half or two years, I found one of our more prized fossils in a creek. I had no clue what it was - I mean I knew it was a mammal, but it certainly wasn't a dolphin or anything like that. Later at a PPS meeting, Bobby and Sarah ID'd it as a true seal, p1 premolar. I later decided to showcase it by doing a painting and mounting it along with a drawing of the dentition to show where it goes. Such a great tooth and I've not found any more since. *note: the painting is of a modern day gray seal - it was the closest in dentition that I could find
  23. Green Mill Run NC Land mammal tooth?

    I made a trip over to Green Mill Run in NC this past weekend to look for fossils in the creek. My son and I had a wonderful time and found some great sharks teeth and other stuff. I'm stuck though on trying to identify this tooth. It does not look like any of the other teeth that I have found in the creek. Could it be a land mammal tooth? Thanks in advance for any ideas that you may have.
