  1. Hello. Found in permafrost, Yakutia, Russia. I made a bet with a friend that is a mammoth Tusk, and he claims it's not a Tusk! Thank you.
  2. The season has begun

    Well, it wasn't long into our first day trip...Bonedaddy and I decided to do a little high water scouting. First hour in and we smack right into this monster! It was horribly preserved, and I will have my hands full, but when it's all said and done, should be a beautiful piece.
  3. As some might have read in a previous topic, I went to visit my girlfriend in Finland. Unfortunatly Finland must be one of the worst places to find fossils in the world, I did manage to find some quartz vains and a few pieces that may or may not be amber (have to do the hot needle test on them first) Even urban fossil hunting is near impossible as pretty much all buildings are made from the fossil-lacking stones that can be found in Finland. The only urban fossils I found was in the Burger King in the Helsinki Central Station, the floor was littered with orthocones there. But Finland really isn't a good place to hunt fossils. But one thing that definitly is a worth a visit is the Finnish Museum of Natural History! It isn't a really big museum, the collection isn't that big, but the way it is presented is very awesome! One of the few musea that nails being modern and educative at the same time without overdoing it. Especially the Taxidermy diorama's were done amazingly. But I will ofcourse start this topic with what I think will interest you guys the most, the Paleontology part of the museum. A mural with Pikaia, Opabinia & Hallucigenia models Trilobites, most of which were found in Aland (Finland), Gotland (Sweden) and other neighboring countries of Finland Trilobites, most of which were found in Aland (Finland), Gotland (Sweden) and other neighboring countries of Finland Orthocone models Graptolites Eurypterid found in Saarermaa in Estonia (Silurian age) Eurypterid model Giant orthocone model
  4. Road works have mammoth task

    Brilliant just sent my application off to the highway’s England company. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-cambridgeshire-45905645
  5. Hello all, I am in the process of restoring 2 beige mammoth tooth, but before going on with a butvar dip, I was wondering if anyone has a good tip in order to enhance the natural colors of fossils. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  6. More ancient specimens found at mammoth recovery site near Cody Mark Davis, Powell Tribune, Wyoming News Exchange, Aug 29, 2018 https://trib.com/news/state-and-regional/more-ancient-specimens-found-at-mammoth-recovery-site-near-cody/article_aedecb6e-d253-57c4-888c-7e4f0240e15e.html More fossil vertebrates recovered from Buffalo Bill Reservoir http://k2radio.com/scientists-several-more-fossils-found-at-wyoming-reservoir/ Unfortunately, with both articles, a person has to deal with annoying pop-ups and / or advertisements. Yours, Paul H.

  8. Pleistocene mammals

    Hey everyone! It has been a while since I've posted here some of my drawings. Here is something new,Coelodonta antiquitatis (Woolly rhino), Mammuthus primigenius (Mammoth) and Ursus spelaeus (Cave bear). P.s. If maybe someone is interested in some of my drawings,let me know. Enjoy
  9. Hi everyone- I have a juvenile mammoth tusk that I would like to learn how to stabilize and restore. The problem is I have (almost) no idea how to even start! The tusk is fully dried out, but it’s split down the middle. I need some advice! Here’s what I know has to be done: 1. Clean the outside and inside as much as possible without using water- any suggestions on what to use? 2. Superglue the two pieces together and use hose clamps to hold the two pieces together- any suggestions on glue/method? 3. Fill gaps/cracks with epoxy- any suggestions on a good type? 4. Sand sand sand! 5. Beyond this point I’m not sure- is there some sort of protective varnish people use? I’m sure I’m missing about a dozen crucial steps here- I have literally never tried anything like this before, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. I posted some photos of the tusk, and I will post photos of progress! Thanks everyone.
  10. Hello! I´m learning more about earlier mammoth species, and have some questionmarks when it comes to mammoth meridionalis. Most of the literature says that the specie lived between 2,5 - 1,5 million years ago. But I´ve been in contact with a seller, and this seller claims that there were meridionalis mammoths living in Hungary between 800.000 - 1.000.000 years ago. The seller also said that meridionalis fossils they´ve found/bought from north sea have sometimes been between 1.000.000 - 1.500.000 years old. The fact that the information is so different, have made me pretty confused. And I´m also questioning the fact that I haven´t found a more detailed story of the actual extinction of the specie? It´s a very trustful team of sellers I´m talking about, and I´ve been buying several fossils from them and haven´t been given any reason to not trust them so far. But since there is a gap of fivehundred thousand years, at least, I still want to reach out for the opinion of others. Because now I don´t really know what to think.. Ps. I´m thankful for any little details you can give me!
  11. Found some more pieces of some mammoth teeth today. Also a lot of other stuff. And I apologize for not so great pics.
  12. Hi everyone, I took a step b ack from the forum and fossil collecting in general due to health issues (which turned out ok for now) but I recently obtained this beautiful specimen the other day and although it has it's flaws, I love it. It is a partial molar which belonged to a wooly mammoth.
  13. Bone valley creek finds

    Hit another creek in bone valley today. The high water is paying off... a creek bank eroded and left a treasure trove.
  14. Where are mammoth fossils in Alaska found?
  15. Hey guys Going thru some old scraps/finds and was just wanting to get your quick opinion if this scrap has enough identifying characters to say its part of Mammoth tooth. There are what appears to be 3 small lobes and was wondering if this is the beginning exposure of a plate? 1st photo is a view of the occlusal surface? showing the 3 lobes and along the right edge would be part of the next plate? 2nd photo is a side view/section showing the enamel lobes? The 3rd photo is a cross section thru the tooth showing the enamel thickness? and lastly a diagram of showing how small a fragment this is and where I was wondering the fragment might be from on the tooth? OK to tell me I'm crazy and would be happy hearing it was actually something else...LOL. Thanks for looking! Regards, Chris Diagram from here. https://www.researchgate.net/figure/Diagram-of-a-mammoth-molar-in-occlu-sal-and-lateral-views-showing-measurements-taken_fig1_11662193?_sg=Pl16q6yiCauAZ6wLhUqBPf7rUg9RKhL7d2FiY3vCAtdodBf6fbt2OybIwdjGaaB0lpVlx_jelzjs3UoTDi-61g The Origin and Evolution of the Woolly Mammoth Article (PDF Available)  in Science 294(5544):1094-7 · December 2001 with 303 Reads DOI: 10.1126/science.1056370 · Source: PubMed Adrian Lister, Andrei V.

  16. 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!
  17. Help with fossil ID

    Will someone help me ID this specimen, it was found somewhere in Rockport Texas. Thanks y’all!
  18. 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!!!! Fossil 1) FOSSIL 2: FOSSIL 3) FOSSIL 4)
  19. Fossil ID

    Is this a Mammoth or Mastadon tooth? ITEM 1 ITEM 2
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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...)
