  1. Hi all! I am relatively new to the forum as well as to collecting but I have put together a small collection of various specimens over the last year. This collection will keep growing and I will continue to post when I get new specimens. I have some more small specimens but for now I am only posting a selection of my collection. Enjoy! -Ben
  2. Got an interesting one for you guys. I recently purchased this Mastodon partial jaw bone which I was told had paleo people butcher marks. I know the fossil is real but was wondering if anyone of you guys had experience in ancient people markings and could confirm the markings. Found in FL, Withlacoochee River. I appreciate any information!!

    Holden Beach Diversity Of Fossils

    Recently got back from a trip on Holden Beach, and just WOW. Words can't describe the uniqueness of being able to find Mosasaur teeth next to Megalodon teeth. The recent Hurricane brought in many new fossils and I had quite good luck. Here are some photos of the trip, I will post a picture showing all of my best finds shortly, but for now enjoy! First, here are some of the Squalicorax pristodontus teeth I collected. These were relatively common.

  5. Hi! Back when I was 10-12 I was hiking in Iowa when I found this "dinosaur tooth rock", which I have carried around for almost 25 years. I have always wondered if it was part of a mammoth tusk, a tooth, or maybe even a Native American whetstone. Or possibly just a weird rock? Any ideas? Thanks so much for any input!! Specs: Weighs = 2 lbs Length = 7 inches Circumference = 8.75 inches Height = 2 inches

    Tusk or Stone Carving Tool? Found in Eastern Iowa 1995

    Hi! I found this in Vinton/Shellsburg, Iowa in the mid-90's. I was exploring a wooded area as a kid with my family. I believe we were hiking by some sort of river. This was partially buried in the ground. I have always been a rock collector so I took it home and have had it ever since! I've always called it my "dinosaur tooth rock". It's definitely not a dinosaur tooth, but would love if anyone had some insight!! Thank you!!

    Bone Fragment

    I found this in one of the creeks (bayou) here in southwest Mississippi. I have found a number of mastodon parts in the same. The most noticeable feature is a curved channel, much like that of a tooth canal. Does anyone know what part of what beast if might have belonged to? Thanks in advance.

    Huge vertebra I found last week

    So last week in the heat of SE Texas I decided to go on a kayak trip (It was 102 F). I didn't find too much but did find this giant thoracic vertebra. It's about 25cm, 9.75 in to the top of the processes, 24 cm (9.25 in) wide across the processes. It looks different than most of my proboscidian vertebrae that I've found, it has a very round neural channel, like I've often seen in sloth thoracic vertebra. It's also stretched vertically. The front articular process extends farther out than what I see in my elephant vertebrae (could it be a xenarthra type process?). It

    Bone ID

    I found this bone in a creek, here in SW, MS. I find lots of mastodon parts and one mastodon. I was wondering if anyone could ID this piece?

    Peace River May 16

    I also had a good day on the Peace River, FL this past Monday. Topped off by a chance meeting with @Shellseeker Jack. I wanted to share the best of what I found that day. I was lucky to find a gravel patch while prospecting in an area I haven't hunted before. The results (minus the usual various shark teeth)- Right side of photos: 2 - Glyptodont osteoderms 2 - partial Armadillo scutes Left side: 1 - partial limb bone (deer?) 2 - Turtle leg spurs Left center: Partial deer a

    Partial Gomphothere Molar?

    Had some productive hunting and found this in a gravel bar. I'm hoping I've found my first gomphothere or mastodon tooth! Or at least a part of one. I've looked at several threads about differentiating them, but I still had a hard time identifying this for certain. Am I headed in the right direction or could it be something else? It does look smaller than I would have expected. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Mammoth patella?

    Found in South Texas. I still have a hard time distinguishing between more rounded proboscidean bones, even after looking at the University of Michigan's excellent mastodon examples. I think this one best resembles a patella, but I'm unsure
  15. Found at a land site in Sarasota we have to go back tomorrow to excavate the rest there is so much more bone in the ground!! Could somebody please tell me what this is I'm leaning towards mammoth or Mastodon maybe a juvenile
  16. Hi everyone, I recently stumbled across this and have been discussing the details with the seller. He called them Mastodon Molars, which they certainly appear to be, but the weird part is where he says they were found. Apparently they were found on the border of Columbia and Ecuador. I googled South American Mastodon and it came up with a lot of stuff on Gomphotheres and now I'm really excited but know next to nothing about Gomphotheres outside of them being a subgroup of Mastodons with funny faces. Here's the pics he sent me, can anyone give me some insight on these?

    Mammoth or Mastodon tusk

    This past Saturday I displayed some fish/shark fossils at the Go Fish Educational Center in Perry, Georgia. In addition to my display was one from the Geology Curator at the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Macon. He showed me a tusk that was given to him from a local whose father used it to carve ivory figurines and was curious as to whether it is mammoth or mastodon. I know that it can be determined by a cross view, but I wasn't sure that it could be from a cut end section. Vertebrate paleontology is not my forte, but I was hoping someone here on the forum could tell. There is

    Mammoth/Mastodon partial sacrum

    I found this reasonably well preserved partial sacrum (which I assume is either mammoth or mastodon), in the Brazos, a week and a half ago. It is finally dried out and I was able to treat it with paraloid. It was extremely fragile when found it. Size is about 290mm, 11.5 inches left to right in the photos. Is there any way to tell if it is mammoth vs mastodon? I've found both in this spot. I've not been able to find good images online, particularly for mastodon and nothing that describes differences (other than one note that said they may be hard to differentiate). Thanks!

    Dugong rib possible?

    I may be embarrassing myself here, but I can only learn if I ask. :-) I found a piece in the sandy gravel of South Texas that looks similar to dugong rib examples I've seen on the forum. While trying to identify it, I found an article online from October of 2020 that indicates people have found dugong fossils in Texas, but it seems like it's incredibly rare. I would think it may be especially unusual to find any this far inland. (Around Waller County, TX). But I do know that so far I've found a lot of pleistocene fauna fossils here that generall
  22. I`m new to colllecting mammal fossils and thinking about buiyng this tusk. The seller said its a mastodon tusk and no the usual stegodon tusk, which seems pretty common. Couldn`t find much information about mastodons from indonesia. So I`m wondering if its real and also how "rare" is it?

    Proboscidean Tooth?

    Hi All- This was found in a creek bed in Northern NJ (not Big Brook). 3 1/4 inches long. Bedrock is early Jurassic but a mastodon or mammoth tusk was found a few miles away (I assume Pleistocene material could be found just about anywhere?). It resembles some teeth I've found online (mastodon and gomphothere). Interesting crystal structure. Thank you- Dwight
  24. Hey guys. My fossil group found a submerged mastodon tusk while hunting. It’s completely underwater and very delicate (it falls apart super easy). Any idea on how to extract such a delicate tusk? The thing falls apart in your hand, we could only salvage some chunks last trip. As for preserving what would you guys recommend so the dang thing doesn’t fall apart? thanks!

    Proboscidean tooth?

    Hi! I'm having trouble ID-ing this ~4.4cm long mammal tooth from China. It was labelled as Playbelodon, though the lack of cusps makes me doubt that assessment. I'm starting to wonder if it's a Proboscidean at all, and if it's an entirely different family of mammal alltogether. Does anyone have an idea on what this could potentially be?
