  1. I had the opportunity to get a behind the doors tour of Alaska’s Museum of the North while waiting for better weather in Fairbanks returning from a caribou hunt. Dr. Pat Druckenmiller, Director and Earth Sciences curator graciously offered his time for a look at what he and his grad students have been doing as well as a look at the collections room. The highlight is the thalattosaur discovered 2011 in Southeast Alaska. This is a new species and was described by Pat Druckenmiller and collaborator Neil Kelley. The detail of this fossil is striking and was beautifully prepar

    Gomp maybe?

    Hi, All! My name is JD. I am from Pittsburgh, PA. Was visiting Edisto last year and found this weird fossil. Have been struggling to ID. This was my first fossil hunt since I was a kid living in Beaufort. P.S. I did properly report this to SC and was properly licensed Can anyone tell me what this is?

    Prehistoric Bison???

    Could someone please tell me if this a Prehistoric Bison bone? I found this above ground in Northeast Georgia. I can't remember the measurements & I have stored it at a safe place. Opinions are welcome! Thank you.

    Is this a mastodon tooth?

    Hello to all this is my first post, my friend found this tooth in his fathers basement( his father was a farmer) and it was presumably found on the property that is all I know. I thought it was a moose tooth or something like that but I am far from an expert and I would like some options.

    Fossilized River bones

    Hello I found these bones maybe 15 feet at the bottom of a wall along the San Marcos River in Southeast/Central TX. This band in the river has produced Mastadon and equus fossils. Hoping for an identification. Thanks

    When is preservation necessary?

    Hello, Total amateur collector here. I found a mastadon tooth yesterday in a Florida river, with some beautiful enamel. My question is, how do you know in advance which fossils are unstable and will need preservation? Is it okay to let things dry and just see what happens? Are there general rules? I know tusks are fragile, but have been having a hard time getting more information! Thanks!

    Florida (Central) - River Finds

    Hi everyone, I have here some fossils, mostly teeth, from a river in Central Florida. I'm pretty sure I know what some of these are, and if anyone could confirm or correct me I'd appreciate it! I know the first one is a Megalodon fragment. The second one could be a great white. I'm less sure about the last one. My question here relates to the 9 shark teeth to the top right. I think the second is a Mako and the third is a Tiger, but ultimately not sure on any. Prehistoric crocodile/alligator tooth? It looks like

    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...
  11. Hi my name is Elias and I am new to the Forum! About a week ago I found a large piece of what looked to be fossilized bone, on Folly Beach SC. Upon further examination I noticed that it seemed to have a solid light gray center surrounded by a ring of bone. Further research has led me to believe this may be a chunk of Mastadon tusk, however the specimen is so beaten up it is hard to identify any Schreger lines. I am much more experienced in Cambrian and Ordovician fossils, and have just recently begun exploring fossils of the Pleistocene Epoch. I would appreciate any help on identifying
  12. Went back to the river yesterday inspite of the high gauge readings and strong discharge reports. The reports were spot on! The water level was visibly higher and the flow was really moving along. It was a tough pull to get the kayak up river to my favorite spot. I passed several new obstructions on the way, including a 25' to 30' palm tree, root ball included, sitting in the river where there was no sign of it last week. When I arrived at my intended dig spot the usual sandy shoreline I have been beaching the kayak on did not exist. I had to climb the bank and tie off the kayak to a tre

    Tooth Identification Help

    Hi again fellow fossil-lovers! I was fortunate enough to come across this beauty at a yard sale so no known origin of course. Ok, here's the fun part... To me, in my amateurish-style expertise, it looks like a Mastadon tooth, however, it appears WAY too white & clean in my opinion to be as old as claimed by geologic history. Can someone help me out here? Do I have a Mastadon tooth? An "Old Asian" Elephant? It's certainly not a replica, that much I know for sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated & thank you to everyone who's helped me in my previous threads. You're all an awesome b
  14. Hello! I have a coworker that found this tooth in the Kansas City Missouri area creek walking. It is definitely a tooth, and from my limited resources and knowledge it is definitely a deciduous tooth ( no roots) and it looks like a peccary tooth though maybe a bit large for a "baby" tooth, so the thought on deciduous mastodon?. I can get specific measurements, but it is about 2-2 1/4 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches wide. Thoughts appreciated! Bone

    Large leg bone from a dinosaur?

    Mastodon tooth enamel?

    I took a trip to the North Sulphur River this past weekend and this was the first thing I found. It looks like Mastadon tooth enamel to me but I’ve never found any, so I could wrong. Any input is much appreciated. I’ll be posting more things I found while on my trip. Thank’s.
  18. 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

    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

    Why are these black

    I have numerous size rocks that are pure black, that I found this past weekend. Since I found them when the creek was low and they were grouped together I thought I found something!

    Any info on this tooth

    Hello everyone I received this tooth which I bealive it to be either mastodon or mammoth I was told it was found in Texas and that's all I know any info on this tooth would be great. Would it be juvenile or a full grown animal and maybe a approximate age of the tooth it does have some Stoney matrix on the tooth and a lot of cool enamal on the inside thanks to all .the weight of the tooth is 1047 grams.
  22. Hi everybody! I just a question. Does anybody actually purchase dinosaur bones ? I took this bone to UWL and they confirmed and I have emails and photos verifying that it is a Mastadon femur bone. They think they it wasn't full grown yet when it died. It's pretty cool actually and they can't believe how good of condition it is in.
