  1. Claims of a mammoth tusk...

    Posting for an acquaintance. Someone claims this is a mammoth tusk, and they're 100% certain. I'm not so sure. I've seen mammoth tusks in museums, and up close and personal digging one out of the dirt. I don't remember longitudinal striations like this object has. Can anyone tell me what it might really be? Or confirm if it's actually a segment of a mammoth tusk? Best pictures I've got, 3rd party source.
  2. Bones found in my Fathers Barn

    Hello everyone, I am new to the group. I was cleaning my fathers barn this weekend and discovered these three fossils. He is very elderly but he said they were found on Whidbey Island in Washington. He thought they were Mammoth teeth. We did not know what the fang is from. Or is it a mammoth tusk? Any info would be appreciated... Thanks Bill
  3. While hunting for fossils at Aurora on vacation my father in-law told us about a sorry he was told as a kid. He grew up on a farm outside of Hackettstown. He said that the neighboring farm had a mammoth found in it's pond sometime in the 20's or 30's. It evidently was taken to a college or university in Connecticut . He said he always wondered whatever happened to the mammoth. I know this is probably a needle in a haystack sort of situation but if anyone has anyway of getting info on where the mammoth is or papers written that would be awesome. Thanks Adam
  4. I’m fairly certain this is a piece off a large bone from a mammoth or mastodon. Can anyone recognize what bone it’s from? Pelvis??
  5. Pleistocene (Ice Age) fossils ID

    Hi all, Planning to better organize my small fossil collection in a single showcase, so with emphasis on Mezozoic finds I'll probably be able to devote max one shelf to the Quarternary. Would be good to clean up and recheck the ID (I know just a half anyway). So a bit of help will be appreciated:) The items: 1. Woolly mammoth tooth?
  6. Is this mammoth tooth real ?

    i saw this on online. Is it real ?
  7. Hey everyone, I got a lot of great feedback with the recent image I posted of my mammoth and megalodon tooth. Here's the footage from the trip!
  8. Fun morning Northeast Texas hike with a heat index of almost 110 degs by the time I left after lunch. The Tylosaur vert is worn but huge and weighs close to 2 lbs. The Tylosaur jaw section was almost buried as you can tell from the in situ pic. The artifacts were a nice little bonus. I waked in tracks for over half the day so I would love to see what the first guy found.
  9. Large Bone Fragment?

    Hello, this was found on a southern Minnesota river rock/sand bar. I have a guess what it is but wanted to see what your unbiased opinion is by not divulging my suspicion. It dense but pretty light like a piece of very hard plywood. This was found by a friend who loves hunting river banks and rock bars...
  10. I see clear differences between woolly rhino and today's rhinos but I am not sure it is as clear when looking at mammoth skulls vs modern elephant skulls? Maybe someone that is pretty experienced would help me spot the difference. I am looking at jaws & other bones for sale and I would not want to buy modern elephant bones. Thanks
  11. Partial mammoth tooth and megalodon from this weekend's diving. These are my favorite pieces from a few dozen pulled up. In the last few months I've started my blackwater diving career and jumped in rivers from FL up to SC! It's been a fun ride to see what is hidden beneath the black waters of the southeast!
  12. Mammoth tusk fragment

    From the album Macro Florida Fossils

  13. Hello, I found this diving off of Venice Beach, FL in about 25 feet of water. It is about 88mm x 38 mm. To me it looks like a piece of a tusk. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks!
  14. So i have a small fossil collection and i want to learn how to study teeth and their anatomy the teeth i already have are from spinosaurus, mosasaur, carcharodontosaurus and megalodon if anyone could help me learn how to do it i would be really thankful. Thanks.
  15. How to study fossils.

    So having a small fossil collection i have thought of the possibility of studying the fossils especially the dinosaur teeth but the problem is im not a scientist so i don't know how to study them so if someone could tell me if cheap fossils like these could be studied and how it would be largely appreciated. (Collection includes 2 spinosaurus teeth, a meg tooth, 2 mosasaur teeth, mammoth hair, carcharodontosaurus tooth) Thanks.
  16. The Maasvlakte 2 museum

    Hi everyone, Last Thursday I had a school trip to the harbor of Rotterdam, the biggest harbor in Europe and 10th biggest in the world. We were specifically in the Maasvlakte 2 area, the newest addition to the harbor to accommodate larger ships and more containers. There's a small museum there which we visited. The intent of the trip was to discover more on how the harbor evolved to fit the needs of the world in the ever-growing globalization of the planet. However what no one else in the class knew (because no one else in the class is as crazy as we all are ) is that the sand used to make the artificial beach of the Maasvlakte 2 is full of fossils. Same story as for the Zandmotor (and many other fossil-containing beaches in the NL), the sand used to make the artificial beaches is extracted from the North Sea floor, which is very rich in fossils, especially of Pleistocene age. I was really hoping to be able to have some free time during the trip in order to go on the beach and hunt a little bit (I've already been there once, some 4-5 years ago), but that unfortunately didn't work out. Luckily in the small museum they had a section dedicated to the paleontology of the beach, and I had the pleasure to visit it. Big mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) tusk. This one is probably not from the beach itself but rather dredged from the North Sea. And here's a view of the small exhibition with a big mammoth hip and femur (I think they're casts though).
  17. ID Help -Yesterday Peace River

    So yesterday was a great day on the Peace River. I found what I believe (hope) is a Mammoth spit tooth. If not it's a nice chunk of tooth plates. I posted a quick shot that was somewhat blurry in the discussion section last night promising better pictures today. So, first an overall from yesterday's best finds then to four shots of what I hope will be confirmed as the spit tooth. Input is much appreciated!
  18. The past month on the river has produced a wide variety of finds. I have been very lucky as a rookie fossil hunter. It all started with the idea of finding some shark teeth. Now I can't wait to be surprised by the next thing the river will give up. The area I have been concentrating on has been producing mammoth tooth fragments on almost every visit. Today topped it off with what I think is a mammoth spit tooth. I will post better pictures tomorrow in the ID section. My resident photographer was not available tonight to provide her usual expert photos. I was so excited by the find I had to post a shot I took just after getting back to the launch site.
  19. New UK mammal fossils

    I just obtained a couple of UK mammal fossils. The first one is a 25cm Hippopotamus tusk from Cambridgeshire. The second is a mammoth cuboid also from Cambridgeshire. The Hippo tusk compares nicely with a decent sized T rex tooth replica.
  20. Mammoth Tooth?

    I found this fossil on a gravel covered sand bar in a stream in central Iowa. I think it is a mammoth tooth but the shape seems quite unusual. The circular root is small compared to the rest of the tooth. Can someone confirm? This is my first post but I have found lots of interesting stuff in just three trips including an awesome mastodon tooth! Lots of questions too. Thank you.
  21. Hi guys. I'm looking forward to do this trade.I'm offering partial Mammoth tooth from Serbia,possibly Mammuthus primigenius tooth.I'm looking for some Miocene,Pliocene or Pleistocene mammal teeth.Let me know if someone is interested. Darko
  22. I will soon be attempting to recover a mammoth tusk in Florida. Is in a creek bank with an end exposed and appears to be like most Florida tusks... crumbly. I'm hoping maybe the buried portion will be sturdier than the exposed. I havent messed with it since finding it. Just wanting to pregame the recovery. It thoughts comments concerns and suggestions are welcome.
  23. Hi everyone, Not last Wednesday, but the one before that one, I went to the Zandmotor again for a hunt, and it went well! As soon as I went down on the beach (I was still in the Kijkduin area, not yet on the Zandmotor), so only some 5 minutes or so into the hunt, I found this little ugly thing in the sand: It's a small (slightly incomplete) mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) lamella! It's from the late Pleistocene, some 40'000 years ago. It's nowhere as nice as the previous one I found, but this one's cool too. Still happy to have found it because lately I've really been on a dry spell when it comes to the mammal stuff, so hopefully this is a sign that I'm gonna find some more again. After that, I continued hunting for some 4 hours or so, until the rain chased me away. The weather, although sunny at first, was really not great because there was a lot of wind. This made it a bit colder, but more annoyingly there was sand going everywhere. At some point I was checking out a little sand cliff for some shells, but had to turn my back immediately because the sand was going in my eyes. Also, the 'wich' part of my sandwich became essentially irrelevant... I did make some cool fossil shells finds though:
  24. Mammoth tooth?

    This was found in Florida. Unspecified location. It was pretty small but I wanted to know if it was a mammoth juvenile or not. I actually own a mammoth tooth and it looks very similar but it's so small I wasn't sure. Possibly one of those pygmy elephant things. If anyone knows PLEASE tell me
