  1. The tide tables for the Bank Holiday weekend suggested we should perhaps make a return visit to Beltinge to search for more sharks teeth, but the weather forecast put us off; predicted onshore winds would probably hold the water in the estuary preventing the best parts of the beach from being uncovered. So, having been offered the use of a caravan on the north Norfolk coast, we decided a change of scene would be interesting and looked forward to the challenge of a new beach to search. East Runton and West Runton beaches are famous for their geology and wealth of fossils. Rocks from the Cretaceous onwards are present and a wide variety of finds can be made if conditions are favourable. Several recent postings on social media showed some lovely mammoth teeth and other bones had been found, probably brought ashore by the strong north-easterly winds during the winter and early spring. Due to other commitments we didn't arrive until late on Sunday night. The following morning we were greeted by bright sunshine but there was no rush to get down to the beach as the tide wasn't due to uncover the foreshore until late morning. After a leisurely breakfast we headed down to the beach. Unfortunately for most of the holidaymakers, the northerly breeze had brought thick fog off the sea and it clung to the coast, turning the conditions decidedly cold and damp - not good for making sandcastles and having picnics, but fine for fossil hunting! The majority of the morning visitors had abandoned the beach and we had the place pretty much to ourselves. Looking east towards Cromer. Not much sign of spring bank holiday visitors!
  2. Help with fossil ID

    Will someone help me ID this specimen, it was found somewhere in Rockport Texas. Thanks y’all!
  3. Possible Mammoth Tooth?

    Thank you for looking at my fossils. I think that I found several different fossils that may be partial Mammoth teeth. Editing to add location: Everything was found at the beach in North Carolina -- South Eastern NC - wrightsville beach. I will seperate the photos so that it won't be confusing. THANK YOU!!!!

  4. Fossil ID

    Is this a Mammoth or Mastadon tooth? ITEM 1 ITEM 2
  5. Texas Mammoth Stuff

    I don’t buy fossils often as I prefer to find them myself. But I do respond to a good deal at times, especially when the specimens are better quality on average than my personal finds. Several years ago I met a husband and wife in a small Texas town with a mammoth jaw for sale online. The add was pulled due to thick heads at the sale site misinterpreting the ivory ban to extend to fossil ivory...fortunately this went down after we got each others’ Paypal info. Side note: I was first bidder and the new policy saved me from entering a bidding war! Anyway, I got a great deal, and they liked the no-haggling experience we shared. Every 2 or 3 years I get a call from them, as was the case this week. I guess they put the word out over time in their little town, and now everyone in town brings their unwanted Pleisto stuff to this couple for commission sale. We have a great rapport and they give me first right of refusal on everything. The stuff I don’t have room for I often give away as gifts or it makes its way into other hands pretty quick through trade or occasionally by sale. It’s all good...now my coworkers, friends and family are all loaded down by complete and partial mammoth teeth. And I may have kept a goodies few for myself. The funny part was watching me part with $ on this stuff several years ago. Now that I’ve found a few good mammoth teeth and tusk sections on my own, buying isn’t the same jagged pill it used to be. Glad my pride didn’t blind me to good deals. Anyway, let’s have a look at my most recent takeaways. The biggest tooth is 13” maximum dimension.
  6. Mammoth Stand

    Sometime last year, I stabilized and repaired this mammoth tusk for @StevenJD. At the time, we didn’t land on a way to display the gnarly beast. Believe me, this is in great shape for a central Texas mammoth tusk. Steven asked me to sell this piece on his behalf so I made a stand to hold the three big pieces in a roughly life like position.
  7. Mammuthus primigenius (Blumenbach 1799)

    From the album Vertebrates (other than fish)

    Molar from a juvenile animal. 15x10x4cm. Pleistocene. Found somewhere in Germany, but the seller couldn't tell me from where exactly.
  8. Ivory / tip of tusk? Help ID

    Hi! I found this ivory piece I would like some help... Its has a rounded tip so I figure it might be a type of tusk tip? I know ivory grows on ring like formations but this piece is almost flat like more of a oval. And its so polish on the outer layer. I found it in a beach near Tybee Island in the Savannah River. Any help is apprecieated!!! Thanks in advance
  9. An afternoon on the Zandmotor

    Hi all, So on Tuesday afternoon, I was lucky enough to only have a half day of school. Seeing that the weather was nice, and that I had nothing else to do except go home, I decided to take the bus in the other direction, so to Kijkduin, in order to do some fossil hunting! I bought a sandwich and a chocolate bar at the Shell gas station, and set out on the beach. From the beach of Kijkduin I walked south, so towards the Zandmotor, while of course looking for fossils. View of the beach (mind that the sea is on the right side, on the left side it's just a small lagoon), with the haven of Rotterdam in the background. View of the beach with Kijkduin, and then Scheveningen, in the background. (Sorry for the blurriness...)
  10. Part 4 (from Washington)

    Ok, so here's where I've gotten to & this will bring you up to date with what I've accomplished so far. First, I used a couple of different small stiff brushes and a very low impact tool that is similar to a Dremel tool. I cleaned a sand type of dirt, that fell away without much effort, in places in & around on the surface. About half way through the cleaning the piece started to make noises as if cracking. I mixed up a tube of Duco cement with a six oz. bottle of acetone. I decide to apply it generously to areas I'd already cleaned. I believe it was a good move as the sound has stopped. Also, it feels more sound when I pick it up. After I had applied the solution, I left it under a uv light to dry.So what do you think so far?
  11. CLONING MAMMOTHS

  12. SC mystery Mammoth in the news

    Here is another fossil controversy from SC. http://www.thestate.com/latest-news/article207256219.html
  13. Hello again TTF! This will be my second post about my finds from my first trip to the peace river! This post is dedicated to one of my favourite finds and one of my favourite animals, the mammoth! During my trip to the peace river, I found many beautiful fossils myself, but I seemed to have had the best luck searching through other people's garbage. The location where I went to collect in was already visited many times by other people. Everything unwanted that turns up in their shifters is usually thrown to the banks, creating garbage piles. One particularly productive garbage pile produced many of my favourite Dugong ribs, my only meg (more on that later) and a mammoth tooth! How someone could look at these things and throw them away is beyond me. Unfortunately, the tooth was already fragmented when I found it. I believe that all the fragments came from the same tooth, though, because some fit together perfectly! I also have a question about this tooth. Is it possible to identify the species of mammoth from the tooth, either from its features or by looking at the known species of mammoth present in Florida? Thanks!
  14. Southern Illinois

    Not the best pictures but don’t have the pieces in hand yet. These were purchased from a man who bought them from a southern Illinois estate sale. The son of the original collector said they are as collected and the parent said the teeth were mammoth. Not sure about that as some look possibly equine or maybe camel? Are these poor quality photos enough to point in any particular direction? Definitely no idea on the plant trace or bone. Any help in ID or direction would be appreciated.
  15. Hello everyone, I stumbled upon this beautiful piece in an antique shop in Germany. The seller was not really sure what it was (only whom it belonged to), but I thought it looks like a lot to a mammoth jaw section. We can see that a new molar is starting to push the old one. As the object was found in Asia, I wonder if it could not be from an elephant rather than a mammoth. I've read in this forum that the two can look very similar, and now I a not sure what it is. It has been imported in Europe quite some time ago, I guess before any regulation on elephant "products". The section is relatively small, and the laminar structure has only around 7 "stripes", so I guess it comes from a young animal. Can someone help me try to identify from which animal this comes from (and maybe how old this can be)? Thanks a lot ! Lionel
  16. Mammoth or mastodon ivory?

    I cut into this piece with my tile saw to make sure that was when I thought it was. Prehistoric Ivory. Weight and solid 15 lbs and is covered in weird white stuff
  17. Pleistocene Proboscidean Tooth

    I found this today in a coastal Early Pleistocene deposit in South Carolina. I was thinking mammoth when I found it, but now I think it may be something else? It doesn’t have the characteristic rows of a mammoth tooth.
  18. A Spineless Mammoth Tusk

    So I was paddling along a stretch of the North Sulphur River recently where I have little experience. Most of the time, my eyes are on the Ozan formation down low, but for whatever reason, I glanced higher at the overlying Pleistocene Sulphur River Formation, and spotted a curious white ring from about 40 feet away. Hmmm...worth investigating. It was indeed ivory as I had suspected, and the dirt plug in the center suggested that I was staring at the pulp cavity on the proximal end. Let's have a peek.
  19. I am more than certain this is ivory, but I always like sharing. What do you guys think? The schreger lines seem worn from the waves. I believe this is partial cementum and mainly dentine.
  20. Hey guys, the storm up north is churning up some amazing finds! I'll be posting over the next few days my finds but I wanted to know your opinion on this very large vert. I'm thinking whale or mamm/masto. Let me know!

  23. Mammoth vertebra?

    I've been watching this vertebra on our favorite auction site and am not quite sure if it's from a mammoth, and neither is the seller, since he's placed a question mark along with it. Could someone more knowledgeable than myself please confirm or deny this? I'm thinking that it may be from some other kind of animal. I'm afraid there's only one photo. It measures 11.5 x 11.3 x 10.5cm.
  24. Hey guys, since we were on the topic of mammoth/mastodo ivory in the I.D forum, I was wondering if we could quickly talk about Schreger lines. I have found several small ivory fragments with Schreger lines and was looking through articles the other day about them and ID'ing ivory. I saw a picture of a cross section of sperm whale ivory and noticed some lines. I wanted to know are these Schreger as well or are they limited to only those in the Proboscidea order. Below is the picture, a picture of my best ivory chunk, and a link to the website I was looking at. https://www.fws.gov/lab/ivory_natural.php#whale
  25. Hey guys, a while back I found this amazing chunk of bone after dredge was dropped off for Irma restoration of my beach. I took it in to the NHM of Florida in Gainesville where I had people examine it. We found it not to be giant ground sloth but either Mastodon or Mammoth, and after lookin at some bones I decided it was probably Mastodon. I wanted your guy's imput on the bone. We know it's leg, but which bone? Let me know! Attached below is a link with video showing off the angles better along with photos.
