  1. Was doing some fossil collecting today in the NJ cretaceous streams, when I found this beauty. I am pretty sure that it is an incisor of a giant beaver. I was coming back when I decided to double check a gravel bank and there it was.
  2. First Mammals, 200 Mya

  3. Hi all, Here is a large tooth with root from Solo River of Java, Indonesia that is supposedly 1.8 million to 200,000 years old. It is identified only as being a carnivorous tooth. My guess would be a crocodile. Anyone can help shed more light on this? Thank you!
  4. Mystery Bones?

    I've had these for quite a while -- found along the MS River gravel bars, so they're Pleistocene in age, but I just have no idea what they are or what they belong to. My best guesses would be some kind of cranial or jaw fragments, but other than that I'm stumped! Any help is appreciated!
  5. Hello everyone. I would really appreciate any help in iding these fossils. I found all of them on the beach amongst limestone rocks that have been dredged up. I have heard from a local that the dredge went about 30-40 feet into limestone. The beach is located on the southern NC coast near Wilmington. I think this would indicate the possible range to be Cretaceous to Pleistocene. Unfortunately, I really don't have a good handle on how old these are. I have found many fossilized sand dollars, and various shark teeth including tiger, sand tiger, and 2 whites I believe the 3rd vert to be of a different species than the first two since it is convex on both ends. It is also very worn. The fourth vert is larger than the other three and is missing a decent portion Finally, these last two I am not sure what they are. I thought one may be an alligator or crocodile tooth, but it doesn't look like any of the other teeth I have seen. I would also appreciate any direction towards resources that could help me better id fossils in the future. Thank you for all your help.
  6. 14 Mammal + 2 Shark Teeth

    Hello guys, here is my first batch of unknown fossils from my grandfathers collection. Their origins are unknown but I'm fairly certain that the shark teeth are from Malta. If I had to guess I'd say the larger shark tooth is from some sort of great white ancestor while the smaller one perhaps mako? Regarding the mammal teeth I would say Equus for the larger ones. No idea about the rest, the smaller ones look kinda humanish... Anyway I leave it up to you guys to discuss. If more photos are necessary please tell me, I am more than willing to take all the photos needed to get a positive ID on these pieces of history I have labelled them so they would be easier to discuss. Thanks in advance.
  7. What Kind Of Tooth?

    Hi, I recently came across this tooth on the internet and would like to know what it is from. Thank you! Lauren
  8. 4 Tiny Teeth From This Weekend

    I dug for 3 days in a row this weekend but didn't have much luck. Stormy weather, high water level in the river and chilly winds didn't help. I did find 4 little mammal teeth. Wondering if the top tooth in the photo could be manatee. I'm attaching a side photo of it; it is not very thick from chewing surface to root line. I think the second tooth in bottom row is dolphin.
  9. I have a pretty extensive collection of shark, ray, fish and other micros from sites all over the US, Europe, North Africa and Australia. You can see a very small part of my collection in my TFF posts at the below links. As I add new posts to TFF I'll update this list.

  10. Last Dive Of The Year

    With so little hunting time left in 2013 I decided to recon dive a site that I'd been eying for some time now. This location is in the Gulf off the Sarasota county coast. It was not the hot bed I was hoping for but it was productive. Here is a quick look at some of the fossils I found.
  11. Who's Tooth... I Thought Bison,

    ... I thought Bison Molar, but, it doesn't seem to look like the other Bison molars in the gallery. .... and yes, I cleaned and polished part of this one too.... it's my twisted Lapidary part that does it to me every time.... Sorry I'll take a better pic if need be. Found near Yuma CO.... the same day of the "Maybe Turtle Egg" find. What do you think?
  12. Thanks to John S. I was able to hunt for Peace River fossils at my desk in the comfort of my home. I found a large number shark, boney fish, mammal and ray material. These are photos of the better specimens that I found. Hold your mouse over the image to see the ID and size of each specimen. All always thanks for looking and feel free to assist me with ID's. I'll start things off with the mammal teeth: Continued on the next post.
  13. Pleistocene Tooth

    Greetings everyone, I'm pretty bad with mammal fossils so I thought I'd post something for your input. The age of this piece is Pleistocene and I was thinking bear, dog, wolf. Size is 2" long. Whatcha all think? Thanks in advance! Mike
  14. Help Id Mammal Teeth

    Hello everyone, my name is Ben and I've never posted on here before. I stumbled upon this forum when I was looking up some way to identify these couple of teeth that my girlfriend found today while we were at the beach. It was found on a small island in Tampa Bay, if anyone is familiar with the area it is known as Beer Can Island. Anyways, I am curious to know what you all think. Thanks!
  15. I found this while looking for shark teeth and Ramenissan. I am very confused as to what it might be and what time period it is from. Please let me know! Thank you. Jeff
  16. I found this Mandible piece in a river in North Central Texas. I'm not quite sure what it's from (might just be a cow). But i would like it to be a Camelid or Bison at least haha. Thanks!
  17. Curiosity Killed The Newbie...

    I would love input as to what this tooth may be. Found in the St. John's river (actually my toes found it). The folds and whatnot just piqued my curiosity as I have never seen a tooth like this. It's small and flat and I can only guess it came from a mammal. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  18. I purchased someone's lifetime collection of ice age mammal bones on ebay. On a personal level, I find this both a great learning opportunity, as I'm not well versed in vertebrates, and also somewhat depressing that someone's entire life's experience collecting changed hands for a small bit of paper. Times are hard, I wish him well. Anywise, I'm looking for a way to identify these bones without just asking people what they are. I'll learn the biology better if I research it myself. Does anyone know of a good website or book for deer, elk, bison fossils from the Kansas River area in Kansas? I appreciate any leads. Ken Moore Www.treasurehuntingtrucker.WordPress.com
  19. On a quick trip to Big Brook today, I found this in my sieve. It looks to be a mammalian jaw of some sort. I am not sure if it is modern or not. It has three teeth and one missing. It looks to be herbivorous to me, but I may be wrong. Please help me put a name to this specimen. Reference the thumbnails below for what it looks like.
  20. What Is This Molar From?

    I got this from a friends father that passed away, I have no info at all and I cannot find anything like it anywhere.
  21. Mammal Bone..?

    Hey guys! Hoping someone on here can help me ID this bone. I know it's not exactly a fossil but, if anyone has any idea what this may be please let me know. I found it on the beach at Sanibel Island, Fl this past summer, this is the gulf coast of Florida in the US (for those of you unfamiliar with Florida). Sorry, I tried using the link to the map but it's broken. Either way, I've heard everything from "cow" to "cetacean" to "human." Although I really doubt it is the third (or hope it is not)...as a Biologist this seems like a rather clunky and oddly shaped bone to find washed up on shore. My curiosity has gotten the best of me after having it look at me for 6 months as I work. Someone, anyone...ideas?
  22. Hi Folks- Similar to my post on Mazon Creek 2012...here is my post for Florida fossils in 2012. Mostly a few trips to Mazon Creek and other locations. All trips were led by Mark Renz of Fossil Expeditions.
  23. Mammal Tooth? And Unknown

    These fossils were given to me so I have no clue where they are from. It would be interesting to know what they are/what animal they came from. The tooth is a little over two inches in length. I have absolutely no idea what the second fossil is. Any help is appreciated and thank you to those who attempt to identify them. Pictures: Tooth Unknown
  24. Pleistocene? Mammal? Bone

    Found this in the North Sulphur River (north Texas) Saturday. It's definitely not Cretaceous, and it's not a vertebrae. There are bits of mineralization attached to it, and it's too heavy to be modern. My guess is that it's Pleistocene. I think it is relatively complete, but I'm not too good with ID on the non-reptile stuff. Some kind of toe bone from a large mammal maybe? Any help appreciated. Thanks!
  25. South Dakota Fossil Finds-What Is This?

    I found this in southwest South Dakota on private property. There are three different items posted here. Appear to be bones. Can you help? Thanks
