  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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).
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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:
  11. 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
  12. Possible Toe Bone

    Good evening, i found a bone that I believe to be a toe bone of a mastodon or mammoth. The bone was found in the Neuse River in Craven County, NC. Thank you in advance for assistance in identifying this piece.
  13. Genuine Dinosaur

    "Genuine Dinosaur Bone" That is what is said on the painters tape written on black sharpie as I walked a Texas flea market. "Do you know what it is" I asked the old timer sitting among a collection of tools and plywood tables... "That's a dinosaur bone, I bought it years ago." He wanted $40. We settled for $25. I told him after I bought it that is was actually a mammoth tooth, showed him the enamel sticking through and thanked him for the purchase. So this morning, I took some quick pictures before work to get your thoughts. (not great quality, still has a lot of matrix on it.
  14. Mammoth Footsy?

    I recieved this Mammoth bone several years back and assumed it to be a part of the leg, but would appreciate a final ID on the location. Is it this portion of the foot? It looks like there was one on the table of big bones at the MAPS show Nimravis took a picture of.
  15. Good Florida hunt

    So today I was going to try to get in the Peace for a bit. I know where some gravel beds are that you can get in when the water isn't quite as low as you want. I messed around for about an hour but then it just wasnt paying off. One good hemi and everything else was just jar teeth. So I packed up and headed to my old stand by spot. Did pretty good but also put in a lot of hours. *In the pic the top is a section of mammoth tooth it is hard to tell looking at the pic now.
  16. New experiment using frozen mammoth cell nuclei causes some cellular activity but fails to result in cell division. Not as exciting as it first sounds since cell activity might be from the mouse egg cell used in the experiment, but at least someone is trying. https://phys.org/news/2019-03-mammoth-frozen-cells-life.html
  17. Florida fossil hunt

    Had a pretty good day today. I will post more pics when I get home.

  19. I'm trying to identify the polished fossil material in this Georgian English snuffbox, circa 1760 to 1820. Is it mammoth ivory? Walrus? Wood? Something else? The material is set in unhallmarked sterling silver. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Adam
  20. Bone from Holland. Mammoth?

    This bone fragment was sold as mammoth bone from holland. Is it actually mammoth or was that just a guess?
  21. Mammoth tooth?

    This was found on my property in Ellis county Texas. Ellis county has history of mammoth fossil and we might of thought this part is a piece of a mammoth tooth?

  24. Hey! I have kind of an odd question. I am purchasing a fossil for a friend as a birthday gift -- between a tip of a mammoth tusk, or a section of mosasaur jaw with teeth. What makes this unique, however, is that we are traveling to the British Virgin Islands (from the United States) for said birthday and I would like to be able to gift the fossil on the birthday instead of waiting until she returns home as we live in different states and I would only be able to ship it to her house and not be there. I am concerned, however, about bringing the fossils with me on the trip as I have heard nightmares about customs causing long hold ups or seizing fossils. Does anyone have any advice on this? Thanks!
  25. English Mammoth

    Headed up to Walcott in Norfolk Saturday just gone, got there nice and early to beat the crowds, luckily the cold weather had put a lot of people off! Anyway, walked off towards Happisburgh and headed down below the sea defences, was soon finding small pieces of bone but nothing of any major interest, when suddenly i spotted it, up against the sea wall, standing out like a sore thumb, a tooth fragment! I quickly grabbed my prize and gazed in awe at it. I have travelled many miles searching for one of these and now i held one in my hands. I stowed my price in my bag and continued on my way, skipping along the beach until i reached the next groyne, walking up to the corner where you are able to pull yourself up the wall i froze. In front of me, laying on the sand, another one, bigger, better and mine. I couldn't believe it, two in one day! Pure ecstasy filled my veins. The markings on this one were incredible. I continued down to Happisburgh with my bag now considerably heavier (for once). Upon reaching it i could see a lot of other people searching the beach there so i decided to walk back the way i came but search on the tide line now as it was nearly dead low. i walked and waded down the beach until i got to around the halfway mark, i was on the phone at the time to a friend telling him about my day (gloating) and i wasn't really paying much attention so much so i nearly stood on it, looking down, with waves washing over it was another, this one was half buried in the sand so i dug it out like a madman and soon held my prize, this one had been rolled by the waves more so and had been worn down a bit. I carefully packed this one away and walked back to my car. I met a few other hunters on the way with kids who were most impressed by my finds. Now i have no idea of species on these, other than the fragment and second one being Mammoth and someone suggested the last one could be a straight tusked elephant, if anyone could expand my knowledge that would be great! This is my super serious fossil hunting face. It may surprise you but i am filled with joy inside. Thanks for taking the time to read this!
