    Mammoth Tooth

    One of my regular clients picked up this mammoth tooth at an estate sale. The previous owner was kind enough to slather it with plaster and coat that with lacquer around 40 years ago. The tooth was clearly fragile but they didn’t do it any favors. It took a bunch of scribe work and abrasive to remove it all. Then it got a healthy dose of Paraloid to stabilize what cementum was left.
  2. I had the opportunity to get a behind the doors tour of Alaska’s Museum of the North while waiting for better weather in Fairbanks returning from a caribou hunt. Dr. Pat Druckenmiller, Director and Earth Sciences curator graciously offered his time for a look at what he and his grad students have been doing as well as a look at the collections room. The highlight is the thalattosaur discovered 2011 in Southeast Alaska. This is a new species and was described by Pat Druckenmiller and collaborator Neil Kelley. The detail of this fossil is striking and was beautifully prepar

    Proboscidean Tusk?

    When I first decided to picked this piece up I thought it was just an interesting looking chunk of petrified wood, but when I grabbed it, it felt and looked weirdly light and fragile. I pulled it out of the bag for cleanup today and noticed what looked like faint schreger lines. Pictures in the daylight made the lines look clearer, though it's hard for me to make out exactly how they run.

    Mammoth Tooth ID

    Found this tooth on the Powder River in Wyoming. I don't know much but my best guess is a real young Mammoth tooth? Thanks for the help.
  5. Hi! Back when I was 10-12 I was hiking in Iowa when I found this "dinosaur tooth rock", which I have carried around for almost 25 years. I have always wondered if it was part of a mammoth tusk, a tooth, or maybe even a Native American whetstone. Or possibly just a weird rock? Any ideas? Thanks so much for any input!! Specs: Weighs = 2 lbs Length = 7 inches Circumference = 8.75 inches Height = 2 inches

    Tusk or Stone Carving Tool? Found in Eastern Iowa 1995

    Hi! I found this in Vinton/Shellsburg, Iowa in the mid-90's. I was exploring a wooded area as a kid with my family. I believe we were hiking by some sort of river. This was partially buried in the ground. I have always been a rock collector so I took it home and have had it ever since! I've always called it my "dinosaur tooth rock". It's definitely not a dinosaur tooth, but would love if anyone had some insight!! Thank you!!
  7. So it's slightly embarrassing to admit this, but after two years on the forum this is (finally) my first trip report. I've been inspired by the amazing trip write-ups that @Jared C has been giving all of us every week and figured that now that I've finally had a week of finds worth writing about this year that it was my turn to try my hand at the same. I'm 21 and still in the thick of college. I'm attending Baylor University as a Geology major right now after having switched majors at the end of my freshman year. I've always had a love for fossils and prehistoric life and for many, many

    Huge vertebra I found last week

    So last week in the heat of SE Texas I decided to go on a kayak trip (It was 102 F). I didn't find too much but did find this giant thoracic vertebra. It's about 25cm, 9.75 in to the top of the processes, 24 cm (9.25 in) wide across the processes. It looks different than most of my proboscidian vertebrae that I've found, it has a very round neural channel, like I've often seen in sloth thoracic vertebra. It's also stretched vertically. The front articular process extends farther out than what I see in my elephant vertebrae (could it be a xenarthra type process?). It

    Any info - Mammoth tooth

    Hello, I purchased this fossil a while ago - was told it was a Mammoth tooth found in a river in Georgia or Florida, USA. I'm wondering if anyone could tell me more specific information (maybe what type of tooth or anything else!) Thanks!
  11. I just wanted to share this, thought it might be of interest and there's definitely room for improvement and tips! This was the first fossil mammoth tusk I restored and prepared a few years ago- a juvenile mammoth tusk that was split laterally almost perfectly down the middle. It was sourced from central Alaska, though not sure if it was discovered in a mining operation or if it was exposed on a river bank as so many are. The first step was to submerge and soak the entire tusk in a PVA solution, followed by Apoxie sculpt and banding to merge the two broken pieces and restore some
  12. Hi all, I recently purchased this mammoth tooth, which I believe is genuine but would like your guys’ feedback on. I’m not as familiar with mammoth material, but I’m not so sure it’s a wooly mammoth based on pictures I’ve seen online. I believe it may be a lower left P4(?) but not really sure. The seller noted: No restoration AGE :Pleistocene - 12,000 years ago Length: 10.5cm / 4.1 inch Height: 12cm / 4.7 inch

    Mammuthus primigenius

    From the album: My collection in progress

    Mammuthus primigenius Blumenbach 1799 Location: Hatvan, Heves County, Hungary Age: 2,5 - 0,01 Mya (Pleistocene, Quaternary) Measurements: 7x15,5x14 cm Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Subphylum: Vertebrata Class: Mammalia Subclass: Theria Superorder: Afrotheria Order: Proboscidea Suborder: Elephantiformes Family: Elephantidae
  14. So went to peace River today, and as always, I come back with ID’s being needed! So a few different things today. 1. Possible piece of tusk? It’s got cross-hatched lines on it which makes me think of Schreger lines. 2. Another thing I thought may be tusk, for the same reason. 3. I’m almost certain this is a mammoth tooth fragment, but I wanted confirmation! 4. Are these hammerhead shark teeth, or lemon? Thanks in advance! 1) Tusk? 2) Also tusk? 3) Mammoth tooth frag? 4) Hammerhe

    Clear-Coated Mammoth Tooth

    Howdy, I bought a mammoth tooth that was clear-coated on one side. Unfortunately, there are dozens of divots in it that I think are caused by the clear-coating. They're quite deep as well. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    Baby Mammoth Tooth?

    Hi there everyone! I thought I would ask for some help in properly identifying this specimen that I recently acquired. This specimen is said to be a baby/juvenile M. Columbi tooth found in North Florida. The specimen is very obviously worn and has pink patches due to algae buildup. I’ve included several photos below: Front, Right, Left, Bottom, Bottom, Top (Chewing surface), Top (Chewing surface). I’m fairly certain this is a mammoth tooth but I’d greatly appreciate a positive ID since I can’t find much information about specimens like this online. My

    Mammoth fossil?

    Hi, I found this on West Runton beach in North Norfolk, UK. I’m wondering if it is a fossil and if so what type? I have included a standard sized store card for scale Thanks!

    Mammoth tooth - species?

    It is possible identify the species of this tooth? Mammuthus primigenius, trogontherii or meridionalis? According to the seller, the tooth was discovered in Hungary, so what species of mammoth lived here? Woolly? Thanks.
  19. Hi everyone, So, I am moving soon and I was able to get a wonderful cabinet curio with a display case. I have a few fossils that I want to display in there as somewhat of a "mini museum". I know that there are fossil stands for ammonites and shark teeth but I cant for the life of me think of a way to display a few large Pleistocene material that I have, such as a mammoth tooth and bison horn core seen below: Would anyone have any suggestions? thank you!
