  1. fossil jaw fragment

    I was told this is a bobcat. It is said to be found in Florida. I didn't think it looked for sure like one but I don't have any mammal fossils yet so I wanted it anyway. I can't tell what it is though. Some of the tooth tips are chipped and the shape looks a bit strange. The rule is in centimeters (I accidentally wrote millimeters at first)
  2. Florida Pleistocene Bone

    I recently aquired these bones in a creek off the Peace River. I found it along with some other Pleistocene era things. Does anyone know what animal this belongs to or what type of bone it is? I can't find anything like it.
  3. NSR Mammal Enamel

    From the album North Sulfur River

    This tiny enamel's lovely red color is the only thing that allowed me to find it. I'm not sure of the species.
  4. Cretaceous Mammal Jaw?

    I found this the summer before last at a lance fm microsite. The interesting thing about this microsite is that many of the fossils come in a conglomerate matrix which contain pieces of bone, teeth and scales from basically everything that can be found in the area. The guide I was with believed this was a section of cretaceos mammal jaw, likely a larger mammal (for the time) like didelphodon. Unfortunately, none of the teeth were preserved with it so it would be hard to label it as anything beyond a general description. Also it is attached to a a larger piece of conglomerate with a small chunk of bone probably from a dinosaur. Here are both sides of the fossil.
  5. Oligocene Nibbler?

    I want to confirm that this bone fragment has the evidence of gnawing from a rodent or other mammal on it and if it's a common occurrence or not. Found this summer in the White River fm of eastern Wyoming. Here's both sides of the fossil-
  6. Pleistocene mammal mandible ID

    I found this today along with a full bison skeleton in Collin County Texas north of Dallas. It is a Pleistocene lower mandible of a mammal, but I’m not sure what kind. Any thoughts? It is partially mineralized. More so than my bison. Any help would be appreciated.
  7. Good day all! Spent a couple hours down at the beach (Milnerton,Cape Town) yesterday - unfortunately it was a bit of a quite day. Only came across one tooth and some interesting bones I wasn’t able to identify.
  8. Florida Pleistocene Teeth

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and figured this would be a good first post. I was wading through Peace River and found a couple items that I need help identifying. The first I'm guessing is a tooth or nail. I can't find it anywhere in my Florida vertebrates book. It has a circle in the middle, which may help the identification process, as I have never seen this before. The second item is what I believe to be a piece of Mastodon tooth. There appears to be a crystal grey emamel on the tip of what I think is the root. Any help would be greatly appreciated. .
  9. Mammal Tooth

    Found this tooth/tusk in South Carolina off the coast of Tybee Island. We went with a guide and she said it was the tooth of a Jaguar, but she said to check on here to be sure!I think it looks like a whale tooth but it is much thicker than many I have seen.
  10. Canine tooth: bear, dog, what

    This probably needs moved to another place since it isn't actually fossilized. I found this year's aho near cotulla Texas. It was in an area where numerous "arrow heads" are found. It may be more modern than that though. It looks a lot like bear, but it's pretty small.
  11. Jawbone

    Hello, I have had this fossil for a few years, but I do not know what it is from. I picked it up on a beach in South Africa on the west coast, the beach is a few kilometres from a fossil park that has many similar fossils. I currently do not have the fossil so if no one can identify it due to the quality of the picture I will try again once I have the fossil. It is about 10-12 cm long.
  12. NSR Mammal Teeth

    From the album North Sulfur River

    NSR Pleistocene mammal teeth. Likely both bison.
  13. NSR Mammal teeth

    These are two pleistocene mammal teeth from the north sulfur river in ladonia, tx. neither are complete. They likely belonged to a camel and a bison.
  14. To whom does this vertebrae belong

    I found this vertebrae In the Louisiana eocene Cain River formation. I think it’s a Zygorhiza any information would be appropriate .
  15. Help identifying a tooth?

    Found this many years ago near the South Platte River in south western Nebraska. Just threw it in mu box of rocks and forgot about it. I am not sure it is an actual fossil. Im sure it is a tooth, but ibdont recognize it as belonging to any type of cattle or big game animal, seems too small for a wooly mammoth. Any help appreciated. I am holding it in my hand in the photos for size reference.
  16. Identification

    Hello, I joined this group today so that I might have a recent find identified. My name is Larry Atkins and I'm a meteorite hunter from Michigan and I spend a lot of time in Arizona looking for space rocks. I find a lot of different things out there and yesterday I found an interesting cluster of fossil bone and teeth. Last spring, in the same wash, I found a partial skeleton of a huge tortoise. The Arizona Museum of Natural History was supposed to dig it up but they never got around to it and the monsoons have apparently washed it away! So disappointing. Here's an in-situ of yesterday's find. This is in Pinal county AZ. Thanks! Larry
  17. Large Mammal bone fragment?

    Good day all, I’m fairly new to the hobby but have spent many hours coming Cape Town beaches(South Africa) in search of fossils. I Know both aquatic and land mammal fossils wash up on the beach and would like help identifying my latest find if it is even a fossil at all.It appears to be a bone fragment of some sort.i will continue to add more photos. Thanks P.
  18. Need help identifying gift (mammal?)

    I recently was given a fossil as a gift. As I understand it, the seller does not know where it was found or has any idea what it is. There is some writing on the side which I’ll attach a picture of. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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?
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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..
