    Seeking Help With ID

    Finally able to get back out on the Peace River, FL after the flooding has started to subside. Hunting with a friend earlier in the week and he came up with what I think is a caudal vertebra. Looking at numerous photos on line and in reference materials that is the closest I can come to an ID. Based on size I am thinking large mammal or whale. I'm not sure there is even enough of it left to allow for an ID. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The specimen measures 3 3/8th" wide x 3 1/2" long x 1 7/8th" tall.

    Who does this belong to?

    I found this tooth sticking out of the ground of an eroded bank that washed away the side of a hill. I couldn't find anything else that might have been gone with it ,via , other teeth or bones that it would have been a part of. That being said , it was between Sundance and Upton on the edges of the black hills in the far north eastern part Wyoming . The ground it's self is mostly made up of clay. The tooth it's self actually fell apart while running water over it to remove the clay but in a way that you can see the make up and form of the tooth and roots of it from the inside. Any feedback on
  3. Hi everyone, So. I am not from California but received this as a gift. I do have a background in Paleoecology (with a focus in the Pleistocene trophic ecology) but I am a bit out of practice as I have been working with extant systems for the past 10 years. In addition, my focus primarily involved East and Southern Africa. In any event, I am not quite sure yet. It is highly mineralized and I see what looks like algae. From what I gather, it looks like it was in the ocean for some time. the shape (especially in the first image) along with the highly mineralized cross section (enamel?)

    Flag Ponds Weirdys

    Got some weird stuff from the Cliffs, been meaning to get them checked out. first one up i think is a bone fragment of some kind. it passes the tongue test. but someone on the FB group suggested it might be a fragment of a Gomp tooth perhaps? this is a bone fragment, but the porous nature of the middle has me thinking bird perhaps? also, the top edge is rounded and smooth so it looks to be a small diameter long bone. lastly is this piece, Im sure its probably a beaten up snaggletooth, but the cross section has me thinking mammal possibly?

    Tooth or Claw?

    Found this small interesting specimen on the Peace River, FL almost two weeks ago. I gave been working on an ID since and have jumped between a tooth and claw and back again. My first thought was a mammal canine or incisor. I couldn't find a match and then started thinking cetacean. The curve to the tooth and the "chisel"shape of the tip didn't support this idea. Then I started to think maybe it's a claw. This possibility seemed supported by the crenulated area that circles the specimen near the thicker end. Either way I am stuck at this point and hope for some help in furthering my I effo
  6. Found in the hell creek formation in a tiny gully. Any help with ID would be awesome. Also generally, how does one tell if a bone is old/ not just a recently dead animal that washed into the lower strata?
  7. Hi everyone! I have no idea what this is. I looked up various scapulas and hip bones from various things (mostly reptiles) and could not find a match. It gets weirder though, while this one is from North Florida I have another almost identical one from the Moroccan Kem Kem! This piece measures 7.5 cm/2.95 inches long. The "fan" is 5.2 cm/ 2.05 inches wide. The base is 2.6 x 2 cm/ 1.02 x .79 inches. I'll try and get some pics of the Moroccan one but it broke and I have to fix it. What do ya'll think?

    Kem Kem Phalanges id help

    Hi everyone! I've gotten ahold of some kem kem phalanges and while I think most are Theropod I still could really use a second opinion to make sure (and potentially a further id like Spinosaur). I say most because while I'm fairly certain the first three are Theropod the last one looks off to me. Kinda reminding me mammal phalanges from deer or something I've seen from Florida. Any insight is greatly appreciated as always!
  9. Hi everyone, I recently acquired this piece which I'm fairly certain is a piece of the brain case. The issue is I don't know what animal it's from. I've looked at pictures of skulls of cetaceans, deer, bear, camel, everything I could think of. The closest I saw is a fossil peccary skull that was for sale on etsy but I couldn't find any other examples to compare it to. What do you all think? measurements are 2.25 inches wide 2 inches tall, 2.5 inches long.

    Large Bone End

    Had a good trip down to the river this weekend. Found several pleistocene things. I've been identifying things, and I'm going to try to post them in a trip post later this week. But very unsure about this one. Right now I don't even have a good guess.

    Unidentified Fossil Bone

    Purchased at Lancaster Pa flea market. I don’t know the real location of the find.

    Mammal teeth ID

    Hi, I found these teeth washed up on the beach and i'm curious to know more about them. They are covered in what looks like tar. Hopefully someone can identify the kind of animal they belong to, but any kind of information would be great. :-) As far as i can tell, they're some mammal teeth... right?

    Fossil tooth id

    I found this tooth at abbey wood and can't find its I'd online, I've ruled out shark, leaving the possibility of mammal, reptile and fish. Any help is appreciated. It's about 5mm long.

    Mammal Bone?

    This one really has me stumped. Picked it up a couple of weeks ago on a Peace River hunt. I have searched mammal bone, fossil ear bone and other variations on search criteria and can't come up with anything that looks similar. Maybe because it is just a partial of something that is not a common find in the river? If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them. The specimen is just over 1" square with several holes/channels. Thanks for any help.

    Fossil? Vert

    Hi all, I found this bone on the beach today and wanted your guys thoughts. I really didn’t think it was fossilized, but I did the burn test anyway to be sure, and there is no burning hair smell. What are your guys thoughts? It was found in New Jersey, on a beach where I have found a couple shark teeth(4 or 5) including a Great White and a couple sand tigers. I think it’s a worn vertebrae, but I don’t know beyond that. When I get home I can get measurements, but I’d guess ~1-1.5” by ~1”. @Praefectus @Al Dente @MarcoSr @Darktooth @hokietech96 @Trevor @frankh8147

    Roadside find

    A friend found this on the side of the highway in James City NC, any ideas. I told him I didn't think it was fossil but I couldn't identify it. He only took this one photo.

    Unknown tooth from NJ

    Hi, I found this tooth in the Navesink Formation, and, I was wondering what it is, it is exactly one inch long.

    Vertebra? Any ideas?

    Found this bone on the Peace River, FL today. I was searching a new spot when several pieces of ivory tusk were found and I could feel some large bone material under water but was having trouble bringing it up. When it finally surfaced I first thought - vertebrae - and I am still leaning that way. It is approximately 6 3/4" x 6 3/4" x 5 1/4" and heavy. Question is, if vertebra - from what? I would appreciate any input, opinions, comments. Thanks. Also found there today was a tapir molar, mastodon and mammoth tooth fragments, horse teeth and many shark teeth.

    Identification help please

    Found on the beach in south Texas.
  20. older the better


    I Was sorting through some old rocks i had collected when i was young and somewhere i had picked up this tooth. i think it is fossilized ... or just dense... but no animals come immediately to mind. best i can guess it came from south east Kansas somewhere off of the family farm, good chance it came off of a gravel bar there. i don't know why it keeps popping in my head but i keep thinking pig but i really have no reasoning i don't even know what pig teeth look like. anybody recognize it?

    Fossil fragment?

    https://m.imgur.com/a/uiXpI All the photos are there. It isn't magnetic, it's kinda heavy and not fragile at all. I would think it was a rock but it has a curved side and is way darker than any other rocks on the beach. Is there anything you can tell about what it is based on this? It's kind of shiny as well. found around Melbourne beach FL.
