  1. Forgot to include these in my ID post earlier this morning - so here they are! First up is a mammoth spit tooth - I know that’s what it is, my question is… how much of the tooth do I have? @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Brandy Cole @digit Second Is a tarsal/carpal bone. I think. It’s a complete bone, that I’m sure of. Measures 1.5”x1.2” (38.5mmx32mm), video at the end: FullSizeRender.MOV

    You can go home again

    I had not been in the Peace River for a month. Cool weather, had covid which made me weak, busy with other responsibilities. I went with two friends. The River is very low, clear in most spots. We chose to go back to a place where we had found a lot of pretty black on black Megs 5-6 years ago. Also had Mammoth and Mastodon fossils. One of us found just a few little shark teeth, a marble, and a beat up Llama tooth. Another found LOTS of little shark teeth and 2 or 3 distressed Megs. Great day, Sunshine , good friends , cool water. I could hear a Hoot Owl in mid afternoon. H
  3. It has been a while since I’ve needed this many things ID’d! So found something I’m pretty sure is a mammoth carpal or tarsal bone (Or a toe? I really don’t know), a piece of… coral, maybe? And 2 limb bones. 1) Mammoth carpal/tarsal or toe - measures 6”x3.5”x2.5” or 150mmx90mmx63mm A video to show it better is at the end. Coral: Limb 1 - measures 6.5”x1” or 160mmx27mm Limb 2 - 4.2”x1.1” or 106mmx28mm @Shellseeker @digit @Harry Pristis @Brandy Cole thanks in advance! FullSizeRender.MOV
  4. So this past weekend was another very successful weekend. Didn’t have quite the volume of finds, but the things I did find… So starting off… found in 2 pieces and put back together with epoxy - a lower left M3 Columbian Mammoth molar: Following that with 2 chunks of the lower right molar and a chunk from one of the uppers - all found within a ~8 foot circle: A 2” long, the biggest I’ve ever found, gator tooth, 2 other smaller gator teeth, and a decent gator osteoderm: 13 Glyptodon and 2 Holmesina Osteoderms: Megs -

    Mammoth / Mastodon Tusk or Petrified Wood?

    Hello. I have an opportunity to purchase this item but I am not sure if it is a Mammoth or Mastodon Tusk or a piece of petrified wood? It is 36" long and weighs 97 pounds. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  6. Our mammoth tusk fell off its pedestal and broke apart. It’s a complex break, so I don’t feel confident trying to do it myself. Is there a reputable fossil repair shop I can hire to fix it?

    Mammoth/ mastodon tooth?

    Found this fossil sticking out of the sand. In pinellas. Also found what I think is a mosasaur tooth. Been walking here twice a week and I have found some other mammal teeth, smaller megs, and other various fossils that look like pieces of bigger bones. I enjoy fossils but I am no where near an expert. Just an excited amateur. Thanks!
  8. Hi all, I recently published my first paper as a molecular paleontologist (I don’t have a PhD yet). The publication has actual electron microscope images of mammoth collagen protein. The publication proposes using biomolecule histology to predict degree of preservation of ancient DNA and protein sequences. Take a look for yourself, the publication is open access: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/ece3.9518

    Elephant/Mammoth tooth ID

    Hi, I got this tooth from an old collection which sadly did not contain any locality details. Is it possible to give an ID on this one? I can take better and more detailed photos if needed. Any help will be much appreciated. Regards, Oz

  11. 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
  12. Was found in the Netherlands in 1995. Not sure exact location. Would like to know what it is and if it has a value of any kind??
  13. Please some expert to answer me , I dont have any knowledge, please answer fast TY ! , Please as many honest answers as you can <3 I bought this , but before i pay can someone answer me is it genuine ? real mammoth tooth ?
  14. I went to the North Sulphur River twice in October with little luck. The first time was after a rain that I thought would get a big rise but only got about a 1 foot rise. The second time saw about a 5 foot rise but each time the rain did nothing to wash away all the mud. It was easy walking because the river was so low and dry but no gravel bars as they are all covered in mud. I went to two different parts of the river as well as the feeder creeks and it was the same. Here are a few pictures of the little I was able to find: Some worn chunckasaur, petrified wood, pyrite sun (cool b
  15. I was told the rib could belong to some Pleistocene horse or a young mammoth. There were also proposals that the vertebra belonged to the steppe bison or the woolly rhinoceros. They both were found in Eastern Lesser Poland. What do you think? Thanks in advance!

    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.

    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.
  19. 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!!
  21. 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!
  25. 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
