  1. Mammal Teeth

    Here are a few Maryland horse teeth and other critters from mostly Brownies beach.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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?
  12. 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?
  13. Really caught my attention while mostly looking for shark teeth today. My gut was telling me bone or gator part, but a buddy of mine thinks it might be a molar (gompothere frag maybe?) But it's also very dense (226 g, or 8 oz, only ~7 x 8.5 cm), lending me to believe it's from a dugong or whale. All I know is it ain't invertebrate or fish lol. Thanks! Trip report coming soon.
  14. Santa Fe River fossil-oddities

    Hi all, From Fossil Voyages with @Cris, at the end of our trip together in the Santa Fe, I got spoiled with a bunch of great fossils! Unfortunately I don’t remember what everything was... Anyways, please help me putting an ID on all of these! All from the Santa Fe River in north Florida, and all likely from the Pleistocene. Thanks in advance, Max #1
  15. Unkown mammal jaw from kemkem

    This is a 4cm long unknown jaw from the kemkem formation of Morocco.
  16. What part of a Mammoth is this?

    I got this off eBay as an impulse purchase. It was described as a mammoth bone from Alaska, but I don't know what bone. What am I looking at? Thanks, Matt
  17. Hi Gang, So I meant to ask this quite awhile ago when I saw similar textures in our Florida Plio-Pleistocene osteoderms and periotics and ran across this larger chunk of bone again while rooting around in the garage this weekend and thought I'd throw it out for an answer. Does the lumpy irregular non-smooth texture on the top edge of this bone actually have a name? Is it normal or does it indicate there is some abnormality? I think I've seen similar textures but was curious. I dont know what kind of bone fragment it might be or what critter its from but being its another goofy fragment--if someone has an idea that would be cool but right now I'm just hung up on what the weird texture is...LOL. I know I'm crazy....Any insights are welcomed. 1st shot of the texture Next 2 pics show a slightly diff angle of one side of the bone with the texture showing at the top. Here's another view of the other edge which doesnt look worn and looks osteoderm/patella like to me. And a view of broken cross section at the bottom of the piece.Thanks! Thanks! Regards, Chris
  18. Horse tooth? From Santa Fe

    Hi all, I found this tooth during my trip with Fossil Voyages. It’s from the Santa Fe River, Florida, US. From the Pleistocene. Anyone know what it is? I’m thinking three-toed horse, or small horse, but I’m not sure... Oh, the tooth might be incomplete, I’m not sure either about that. Thanks in advance for your help, Max
  19. Mammalian Bone?

    This is from Hezheng, Gansu in which large amount of mammal fossils were found. Does it look like the end of a femur?
  20. A very curious bone

    I went to the Peace RIver today and will do a trip report in another thread. I found a very curious bone. Curious because it seems to be complete. Curious because it has 3 connection points to other bones. Curious because I have never in 10 years of hunting the Peace River, I can not recall seeing anything similar. The bone measures 1.7x2.0x3.25 inches. Hope someone recognizes.
  21. Mammal tooth in Jaw Frag

    Still stumped by this one thinking about submitting it for fossil of the month based on rarity alone. First tooth in a jaw I've found yet, seems to be carnivore. Found in a stretch of river with roughly plenty of Pleist. material.Thanks! @Harry Pristis @Boesse @ynot
  22. Before anything, Hi everybody Im new here. Well, I just found this "radius" like fossil in a load of pumice sand for construction. I dont know exactly from where it comes, but all around here is Rancholabrean pumice. At first sight it looked like a rib, but now I think is a radius (or maybe an ulna). Unfortunately both tips are missing. I know have the complete bone is necesary for a more specific determination, but I wonder if Order or Family level determination is possible. I had compared with some pictures and the closer things I have now are some medium size feline, a "gracil" artiodactyl or even a human?! Can somebody help me with this please?
  23. Let's see what your "Best Deal" that you received on a fossil that you purchased. Over the years I received several great deals on fossils, here are two of my best. White River Oligocene 24" Lower Titanothere jaw with 2 partial teeth - about 20 years ago I purchased this jaw for $20.00. White River Oligocene Upper Titanothere Jaw portion with 3 complete teeth- at the same time of the above purchase, I also purchased this fossil for $10.00.
  24. Hi all just wanted to do a show and tell on my small mammal collection. I will be updating the post over the holidays . Thanks for looking and have a very Merry Christmas . Bobby 1. Mammoth Tooth North Sea Brown Bank 2. Mammoth Bone North Sea Brown Bank 3. Very rare a Tip of a Strait Tusked elephant Tore Newton Cave Devon U.K. This and the next few are part of an old museum collection.
  25. My kids and I were jetskiiing not far off the coast of North Wildwood and stopped at an island called Champagne Island. As we walked the perimeter of the Island I noticed this (pictured below) in a few inched of water. I gave it to my cousin who is a marine biologist at Rowan University in Glassboro NJ and he let a bone specialist there study it. The bone specialist said it was from a 10-15,000 year old mammal most likely a sea-lion. Thats all the information I have on it and it presently sits on a shelf in my living room. So I came here to share my story and see what you guys think. The piece is about 7" long.
