    Mammoth Tooth--Juvenile or Spit?

    I went out hunting for the first time in a long while yesterday, and was rewarded with this small Mammoth tooth. It's my first one this size. I thought it was sized appropriately to be a juvenile, but due to apparent wear, I'm second-guessing and wondering if it could be a spit tooth instead. Measurements estimated in mm as follows... Length: 50.8mm Width: 38.1 Height: 50.8 @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @JohnJ

    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

    Vertebra--Bison or Equus?

    I found what I believe to be a lumbar vertebra, and I'm having trouble finding good comparison examples between equus and bison. I think those are my two most likely candidates. Do equus lumbar vertebrae have the foramen that I've circled in red below?

    Pleistocene Vertebra

    I found this vertebra over the weekend and was excited to see it still had a spinous process attached. I believe it's one of the earlier thoracic vertebra on the spine, like a T1. It doesn't resemble the horse or bison verts I've found, and I'm wondering if it could be camelid. Since it's fairly round and convex on the anterior side, I considered reptile, but alligator would be all that I'd think would fit with size, and it's a poor visual match compared to the gator examples I've seen. Any ideas are always appreciated.

    Small Bone--Rib?

    Found this a while back and had it in my unidentified pile. I assumed it was a small mammal rib and probably un-identifiable, but I took a second look recently, and there's something about the shape that doesn't quite look mammal to me. It also seems older than many of my finds because the entire in-fill at the broken end appears fully mineralized. I figured it was worth asking about. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @JohnJ @Meganeura @GPayton @garyc

    Proboscidean Tusk?

    When I first decided to picked this piece up I thought it was just an interesting looking chunk of petrified wood, but when I grabbed it, it felt and looked weirdly light and fragile. I pulled it out of the bag for cleanup today and noticed what looked like faint schreger lines. Pictures in the daylight made the lines look clearer, though it's hard for me to make out exactly how they run.

    Petrified Wood with Inclusions?

    I found this piece a while back and picked it up due to its strange shape even though I couldn't identify it. I've mostly focused on learning how to ID Pleistocene fauna since that's mostly what I find. But now I'm trying to learn more about other things I may be overlooking. In several views, this looks like petrified wood to me. But the back view makes it look like it could just be weirdly shaped chert. One way or another, I haven't found anything quite like it. Hoping someone can help. @JohnJ Pic 1: Front Pic 2: Front view from the bottom Pic 3: Front vie
  8. I've been digging through my Un-ID'd boxes and found this small piece. I picked it up in southeast Texas. I picked it up because it had very interesting cross hatching. I haven't been able to figure out what it could be. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Strange Jaw Fragment--No Teeth

    I was digging through old boxes of Un-ID'd material to look for something else and came across this jaw fragment I found a while back. It has no teeth, so I thought the chance for ID was slim. But it does have a distinctive morphology with a large foramen running the length, so maybe someone will recognize it. Boxes are one inch square.

    Large Flat Bone--Rib?

    I found this large, flat bone fragment in a southeast Texas gravel bar. Not sure if there's enough detail here to make a solid ID, especially on the articular process. I tried comparing it to other large mammal flat bones like ribs and scapulas, but couldn't figure it out. Hoping someone with more experience can help ID it. Thanks for any help!
  11. Brandy Cole


    I scrubbed as hard as I dared to try to remove the light brown particulate on this to make the articular surfaces clearer, but not much luck. I'll give it a shot as is. Not sure exactly what I found. I actually passed it up twice thinking it was chert until I got a closer look and saw osteoporosity along one edge. My best guess is epiphysis, but I'm not sure what from.

    Equus or Pre-equus Tooth?

    I found this molar in a south Texas gravel bar. Pretty sure it's equus since there's no isolated protocone (although there is a tiny pebble stuck right in the join, haha). I just noticed that it's a bit smaller than all my other equus teeth, and the pattern seems simpler. I looked through "Fossil Vertebrates of Florida" and couldn't quite make a match with either equus or pre equus examples. MSCH from root to parastyle: ~65mm APL length of crown enamel: 24 mm TRW width of crown from mesostyle to posterior protocone: 25mm. First pics are the tooth, then a couple o

    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.
  14. Hey Gang, I've been messing with some more boxed stuff from awhile ago in my garage. All is Florida material...typical possible Mio-Pliocene, Pleistocene in age. 4 Different specimens for your feedback/consideration: 1) A worn Turtle neural? or possibly a turtle skull element? 1.5cm long. The triangular shape intrigues me. Any chance a genus can be assigned? 2) A bone end. Approximately 3.5cm long. Is it possible to tell from what bone? Any ideas about the possible critter type? Panorama showing different angles.. 3) Very small worm b

    Florida tooth scrap fragment

    Hey Gang, Looking for some more opinions...Not been doing much fossiling lately but I did spend some time looking at some scrap material I picked up a couple years back and had thrown in the possible elephant bits of tooth pile and the wonder if question hit me again. Its about 2.5 cm tall. Could this be something else, maybe even a horse tooth fragment? I did look thru some of the Equiid tooth pictures in Hulberts book and havent seen anything that I thought matched--Cormohipparian and Hipparian and some of the other early horses look like possibilities. Too bad its just a fragm
