    Modern Caribbean echinoid

    I’m not sure if this is allowed as a one off post, but I’ve been trying to identify this Echinoid I found in Turks and Caicos and I can’t find a species name and I was wondering if anyone knew it, thanks it’s a beast

    Peace River Find

    When I hunt the river I always try to do a walk around of the area where I plan on working for the day. I have found numerous nice fossils this way that are just sitting on the riverbed waiting to be picked up. About 4 weeks ago, as I did a morning walk around I spotted some very white looking bone material in very shallow water. Upon picking it up I believed I had two nice size pieces of modern turtle plastron. I didn't see anything else in the immediate area and went about my search for fossils. I decided to take the bone material home and later came to the conclusion they were turtle pl
  3. Just got 2 big modern shark teeth, but have some questions about them. 1. Is this tooth belongs to long fin mako? 2. Can we estimate the length of the shark by just measuring the tooth? (3.5cm for the tiger shark tooth and 5.7cm for the mako shark’s) If we can, How long are these two shark ? 3. Can they grow even bigger?

    Pocket Gopher Femur, SD

    Hi everyone, I was just browsing @PrehistoricFlorida's website and my eye was caught by what was labelled as a pocket gopher femur (trust me there were many more impressive fossils that caught my eye as well). Reason being, I found a very similar bone on a hunt in South Dakota's Hell Creek formation back in 2019. I kept it, hoping in my heart of hearts that it was fossilized, but keeping my expectations low. The rusty staining on the bone made me think there was a chance it was just a beautifully preserved Cretaceous limb bone, but I knew it was most likely recent. It's about 2.5 cm long and .

    Big Bird

    Found in the Trinity River near the intersection of rt.157 and Green Oaks Blvd., Arlington TX. The default identification is likely large modern bird. Perhaps a humerus ? I thought it worth posting just in case someone should be able to offer hope that it is a fossil, however.

    Interesting mammal teeth (modern)

    Hi y'all. While visiting a local rock shop, I saw these mammal teeth in a tray labeled "shark teeth," along with actual shark teeth. I wasn't sure of what they were and decided to take them home. Their proximity to another tray of fossil cetacean teeth and their rough similarity (crown-to-root ratio) made me think they could be odontocete. Thanks for any help! @Boesse@Harry Pristis
  7. Hi folks, Found a couple of mystery bones in the brook today, would appreciate thoughts on if these are modern or Pleistocene #1 - some sort of vertebrae, very lightweight so i'm thinking modern maybe deer? #2 best guess is a beaver tooth? unsure on if modern or not #3 fairly long bone, feels much heavier/more solid than I would expect Thanks,

    Possible modern leopard claw?

    I'm going through some material I inherited from my mother's estate (she owned a lapidary shop that sold lots of rocks and fossils for a number of years) and came across this. It is labeled as a leopard tooth but it looks more like a claw to me. My cats seem to drop similar things (but a lot smaller) regularly. I don't have any other information on it. Does leopard look right? Other thoughts?

    Beach bone id

    Hey my mom found this limb bone (Likely a humerus or femur, hard to tell since its incomplete) a week ago at the beach and and I'm stumped as to what kind of animal it might be from. Anybody have any ideas?
  11. planning a trip for the weekend to Cape Ann, Massachusetts (Gloucester-Rockport). I understand that fossil shark teeth are not going to be found how about modern shark teeth? or anything else interesting? (Other than the world's best fried clams) ps. 2 weeks later a weekend in Cape Cod which according to previous posts on TFF is also devoid of fossil shark teeth
  12. good morning all a recent post of mine and then the response of 2 members concerned keeping (or not) of found modern bone. which got me wondering - WHAT DO YOU FOLKS COLLECT OR KEEP? (not exactly sure what the difference is). For me, collecting in Cretaceous Big Brook, fossil shark or other teeth are my main finds and hence my main collection. But i collect, or at least keep pretty much anything i find that i like so i also keep belemnite, fossil shells, modern bone, interesting stones and artifacts ranging from pottery shards to glass bottles (and even odd stuff like shell

    Modern teeth from Cape Cod

    Hello folks. I’m in Cape Cod on vacation and although I know I won’t find any fossil shark teeth here I HAVE to collect something so I walking the beach picking up rocks and shells and hoping for shark teeth or some marine bone. I did find these teeth on the beach and hoping that someone (Harry ?) can identify them. Don’t have a ruler but 2-3 inches long. Thank you all
  14. Hey, I was wondering what ways to tell whether teeth are modern or fossils, I know there’s the burn test for bones, but I was wondering if there was something like that for teeth? TIA!

    Modern fish bone/dermal denticle?

    I found the object below recently while on a non-fossiliferous beach on Maryland's eastern shore (Atlantic Ocean side). It's not a fossil, though I'm hoping someone here might know what it is. The pointy end on what I'm calling the "top" is translucent, hard, and looks toothy. My first thought was possibly a dermal denticle, though I'm not sure the tripod "base" is right for that. The whole thing is light but fairly solid--i.e., while I haven't wanted to break it, it doesn't bend when I apply moderate pressure. Any ideas on what this is?

    Bone of what?

    Picked up in big brook: a stone that looked vaguely bone-like. Dried up at home and surprise it’s bone. 3 x 2 inches. Can you tell me what kind of bone and of what animal. I’m guessing not my usual deer bone. Thank you all. Is this a job for Harry Pristis?

    Femur ID help needed

    Hello all. These two bones were found this morning. I think they are both femurs but I’m usually wrong. I squally find deer bone so that’s my starting point. The larger bone is 9.5 inches and the smaller 7.25 inches. The larger one is pretty heavy. I am also working on the assumption that they are modern. Can someone identify the animal? Thank you

    modern bone preservation

    good morning is there a need to preserve modern bone? and if so, can you suggest a safe and (relatively) easy way to do so? i'm hoping there may be some kind of aerosol spray or perhaps something i can just brush on i don't have the equipment or space to use acetone and paraloid (and am hoping that would not be necessary for modern bone) thank you

    Fossil? Deer jaw?

    Hey all, here’s another deer jaw that I’m wondering if it’s a fossil or modern, I know it’s difficult to know if it’s modern or a fossil cause deer are still around but I’d really appreciate if you could give some insight! @Harry Pristis @Fossildude19 @digit @Bone Daddy @ShellseekerTIA

    fossil or modern? NOT the burn test

    hello apologies if this is in the wrong category and thank you in advance i read somewhere here that there was an alternative to the burn test to determine fossil v modern it was some kind of liquid solution if i am correct could someone please post/repost it? thanks again

    Can this bone fragment be ID’d?

    Pushing my luck with a 2nd request today. This from my huge assortment of “maybes”. 7/8 of an inch. Very triangular piece as I hope is shown in the photos. Bone? Fossil or modern? Of what? And I understand those are likely difficult questions based on a small fragment. Thank you in advance on any help you can give me

    Bone, fossil or modern, of what?

    Hello all last trip to big brook was great. Found a lot of small shark teeth and more. On my way out in a hurray I picked this up, forgot about it and stumbled on it today. 3 inches long and the texture sure looks like bone. But I am a newbie and was hoping for confirmation. I assume it’s way too small to guess from what (but if you can guess please do). Major question is whether this is a fossil or modern. Any clues from the photos? Have never done a burn test but am ready to try. Sorry to say but it feels light not heavy tjank you

    buffalo teeth

    I came across these in central North Dakota while looking for Teredo wood I assume they are modern buffalo teeth, but when I took a blowtorch to the root, it didn't have much of a burn smell. some of the small bits of root eventually blackened. This isn't so much an identification problem as a question- but confirmation of buffalo is fine, and if I am wrong, correction to the correct animal is welcome. Question: in the process of "fossilization", as collagen or whatever is replaced by minerals, how can you age a specimen, modern vs 'fossil' vs partially 'f

    Bone of what? Fossil or modern?

    I keep finding deer bone but this one looks too short and too thick any ideas? thank you
  25. Hi, Even in this hard times of corona virus outbreak I couldn't resist the urge to visit again a cave that I found a few weeks ago, but couldn't explore it fully. So I went again and this last time I went in the cave I found a great number of bones scattered around the cave. I think they are probably modern, but it is weird because the cave isn't very easily accessible for animals since it has a few big drops. I found this tooth in a small ,,room,, which was barely big enough to squeeze in to. In that same place there were a small broken skull and many bones, but this is just one o
