    Mammoth Lunar?

    With all this talk about carpals lately, I decided to take a second look at this un-ID'd carpal I found a while back. Of all the larger fauna I've looked at, it seems to best resemble the mammoth lunar, but it's not nearly as robust as my other mammoth carpals or several of the examples I've seen online. Maybe juvenile? Just checking to see if there are other possibilities I may be missing. Thanks! @Meganeura @Harry Pristis @JohnJ @Shellseeker

    I was out in a nearby creek yesterday searching my newest honey hole when I pulled this up, at first I thought it was petrified wood, but then I thought I saw schreger lines. I'm not an expert so I'm getting it checked here. Thanks!

    Mammoth or Mastodon vertebrae?

    Was in Florida for a long weekend so I spent some time in the Peace River near Arcadia, Fl and picked this up. By size and basic shape it seems like a mastodon or mammoth vertebrae, but I haven't been in the area enough to tell and granted it’s very worn. Thoughts?

    Large Pleistocene Vertebra

    My husband found this really large vertebra today in a south Texas gravel bar. Looks a lot larger than the one bison thoracic vertebra I have, and the extra dorsal processes fused together are confusing to me. I thought maybe it could be a sacral vertebra that has broken off from the others, but I don't see the large foramen that I would expect it to have. Also it looks smaller than some of the measurements for mammoth that @JohnJ has posted for reference before in a post by @fossilus. I also don't think it resembles the possible sloth in the post above.
  5. Hi everyone! I'm back with another Florida Mammal bone that has me stumped. The size rules out most things. I figure it's either sloth or proboscidean but I'm having a hard time figuring out which one as I can't seem to find a good match. Any thoughts? measurements are: 10.6 cm (4.17 inches) long 6.2 cm (2.44 inches) tall 4.5 and 3 cm (1.77 and 1.18 inches) wide

    Mammoth or Mastodon bones?

    Hi everyone! I've been going through some Florida bones I acquired recently and these two stood out to me. I think they're both Mammoth/Mastodon, the first being a phalange and the second being a carpal or tarsal but I'm not sure and was hoping for a second opinion. Measurements are: 1.85 inches long, 1.5 inches tall, and 1.1 inches wide (4.7 x 3.8 x 2.8 cm) for the first piece aka "the phalange" 3.03 inches long, 1.57 inches tall, and 2.08 inches wide (7.7 x 4 x 5.3) for the second piece aka "the carpal" Any insight is greatly appreciated as always!
  7. Hi Everyone! I recently acquired a bunch of Mammal bones from Florida and I've been going through them hoping to hone my id skills. But I'm still new to this area and would greatly appreciate some confirmation. I think this piece is a carpal/tarsal from a Mammoth or Mastodon. It measures about 3.25 x 2.75 x 1.5 inches and was found in North Florida. What do ya'll think?

    Large Ear Bone?

    Found what seems like a partial skull and possibly an ear bone. Southeast Texas. Never found anything like this before, but the darker smaller segment reminded me of ear bone threads I have seen. The size and general shape of the darker 'ear bone' sent me in the mammoth direction, but I'm not confident in it.

    Florida Vertebrae id help

    Hi everyone! I just acquired some fossils from Florida and could use some help identifying these two vertebrae. The first I believe is thoracic and the second is an atlas, but I'm not sure what animal they're from. Cetacean was the first thing that came to mind but I all the pictures I've been finding are different looking especially the pictures of whale atlas vertebrae so I could really use another opinion.

    Mammoth Plate Shard?

    From the album: Brazos River Finds--August 2021

    A small shard that did not look or feel like a typical rock. It seemed to have lines similar to those I've seen on mammoth tooth plate fragments.

    Equus Tibia & Mammoth Tooth Fragment?

    Hi everyone! I'm now living just outside Saskatoon and I am working with the University of Saskatchewan's Museum of Natural Sciences. The Saskatoon area is largely undescribed in paleontological literature, so I have been visiting various sites around the city in the hope of finding some fossils. I found these specimens in sediment exposed by construction excavation. I have several other bone fragments from this site, all exhibiting mineral staining, but they are likely ribs and vertebrae which are difficult to identify to the species level. The first is clearly a mammal limb bone. I believe i

    Tooth - recent or fossil?

    Hi all I’m new here. My son found today this tooth in a sandy brookside in Switzerland. First I thought it’s from a cow. But then I was searching google pictures and I was confused. Could ist be a fossile? Can someone help? Thank you!

    Proboscidean Mandible?

    Got back out on the river this past Sunday. The water level had dropped a little and the flow had slowed a bit. This allowed me to get a little farther into the river at my favorite big bone hunting spot. The day was pretty much uneventful until I heard the telltale "clink" of the shovel on something that seemed bigger than a chunk of dugong. After a little probing and adjusting for the water flow I was able to pull up the targeted object. It turned out to be a reasonably large bone about 4"x6", it wasn't obvious what exactly it could be. I was hoping it was another piece of proboscidean

    Unknown Partial Bones

    On my last visit to the Peace River I found several partial bones in the area where I found a piece of a mammoth/mastodon metatarsal. This is also the spot where I recovered a piece of jaw bone, carpal bone and teeth of mammoth and mastodon. The bones I am posting now are ones I am not sure are even enough to hope for an ID. If anyone has any ideas I would love to hear them. BONE #1: BONE #2: BONE#3: Thanks for loo

    Proboscidian Metatarsal?

    Made it back to the Peace River today. I went back to a prior area where I have not seen many people in the past, trying to still avoid others. Came up with many pieces of bone. The one I am seeking input on is the only one that I think has a chance of being identified. Best I can come up with after research is a partial mammoth or mastodon metatarsal. This was found right where I discovered a proboscidian carpal bone and a partial jaw bone last year. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

    Tooth Root?? ID Help

    Posted the below a few weeks ago with some other finds hoping to get some assistance with an ID. I think this could be the root of a mastodon or mammoth tooth. I am hoping for input from anyone who has an idea or experience with a similar find. Thanks for taking a look.

    ID help Peace River finds

    I have four specimens I found yesterday in the Peace River, FL that I need some help with on a positive ID. First up is what I believe is a 4" fragment of a mammoth tooth with a long root? Next up a nicely colored Bison upper molar? I am hoping for an ID on the following Vert that I think is cetacean? Finally, what I first thought to be a vert when pulled from the river. I now have doubts due to the various indentations on the surface. I am pretty confident it is bone but

    large tooth fragment?

    Location: West of Houston TX found in gravel load from Brazos River... Possible tooth fragment?...at first I thought it may be wood but the but the markings in pic 000_0609.JPG resemble that of Mammoth teeth. Not saying that is what this is just yet but I can hope can't I?. there is no roots and it is worn pretty smooth from the river and part is broken away....I also found bone fragments and will post the largest in my next post.
  21. Hi, I’ve just joined this site in the hope somebody can help me to identify what we have just found in our loft! We’ve only just bought the property so I’ve no idea where they came from or why they’re there. We’re very intreagyed to find out which animal they belonged to so any advice and information would be hugely appreciated! I have a number of photos but they appear to be too big so I’ll see if I can work out how to upload more. To me, it looks like two vertebrae that have been a little squashed together and we also have a separate disc shaped item that I’ll try to upload

    Southern Missouri Fossil

    I don't k ow what this is. I am making guesses but I don't know. It is around 5 inches wide and 2.5 inches in depth. The two sides are hollowed out. One side shallow one side deep. But they mirror each other in shape
