  1. Hello there! I found this on a beach in South Carolina and was questioning how closely it resembled a human tooth? That or maybe a manatee? I could use a hand it figuring out what creature this tooth came from. Thanks in advance for any and all information!

    Strange Possible Molar?

    Hello again everyone! I found this on a beach in South Carolina and couldn't figure out what kind of (if at all) tooth this is? Any information would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance!
  3. Hi Everyone, We came across another mammal molar in our sifter this weekend. This one is pretty interesting looking and we’re looking for some more help on an ID. Thanks, John

    Camelid molar?

    I don't find many land mammal teeth, so I haven't learned them yet. Found this one yesterday near Summerville in a creek that has Oligocene, Miocene and I believe Pleistocene layers in the banks. Tooth is 17mm side to side x 8mm thick. Looking on the forum (and @Harry Pristis's awesome tooth and jaw gallery), I'm guessing camelid m3, but I could be wrong. Thank you!

    Help identifying molar

    I'm trying to identify this molar. I'm not even sure if it is a fossil. It has a pearlescent color exterior.
  6. Found these recently on the Wekiva River in Central Florida. Would love to know if these are molars/teeth and if so, what did they belong to? Quarter used for size reference. Thanks in advance!
  7. Hello, I found some fossil teeth on a friends ranch in Eastern Oregon and was hoping for some help with ID. The area has been described as Mascall Formation (16 Ma) from the Miocene, however there aren't any detailed geologic maps of the region and I suspect some areas may be closer to the Pliocene. The teeth were found as float material from several places. I think #1 or #2 may be Merychippus or Pliohippus (horses) and #4 may be Equus (horse). #1-3 were all found in the same general area and I am fairly confident it is Mascall Fm (Miocene). However, #4 was found in another area and appears to

    Fossilised tooth of unknown origin

    This tooth was found in the side of an eroding bank . It was covered in clay and at the time wasn't even sure what it was . It was found on the edge of the black hills near Sundance Wyoming about a month an a half ago
  9. I am looking to use a cave bear molar as the charm for a necklace; My thoughts were to insert a ring into the hollow of the root and attach it with epoxy glue. There is also a very small crack in the enamel, and I am looking to strengthen it all over. I would be grateful to hear any advice on this. Thanks

    Tooth? What is this?

    Hi everyone, I have not been on for a while, how is everyone? I have a very interesting find I want to show and hopefully figure out what it is. I was digging in my yard replacing a broken sprinkler. While I was digging, I found this. I’m attaching pictures. You see that black thing on the top? It almost looks like a tooth. It’s smooth, and it looks like it’s encased in some kind of stone. I confirmed it is not metal, as it is not magnetic. Do you think this is a tooth? If it is, it’s the first fossil I found in months. Location is Di

    Peace River Mystery Molar

    Hey so I got a grab bag of Peace River teeth and this was by far the biggest. I thought bison at first but it seems too big and bulky, but I'm open to being wrong. Pics below.

    Mammoth tooth - species?

    It is possible identify the species of this tooth? Mammuthus primigenius, trogontherii or meridionalis? According to the seller, the tooth was discovered in Hungary, so what species of mammoth lived here? Woolly? Thanks.

    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.

    Capybara or giant beaver?

    Hi Everyone! This came from the Peace River of Florida, I'm torn between Casteroides and Neochoerus. Measurements: 18 mm tall 13 mm wide 10 mm thick thoughts?

    Rhino molar?

    Hello fellow fossil enthusiasts, In the pictures included in this post it shows a molar I have found last summer. I found it within a bed of shells on a Dutch beach. I can’t remember the name of the beach, It however was rather close to Zandmotor, which is famous for its ice age mammal bones. I have shown this molar to a fossil buyer/seller and he has told me its possibly an unused molar of a woolly rhino. I thought I’d put it on here too however to see if anybody agrees. thanks for looking, AnyArthropod

    3 Toed Horse Tooth--Nannipus?

    Weather was cold and windy yesterday, but sunny and calmer down in southeast Texas. Sandy gravel matrix. I always hate to get my hopes up too early in the game, but I think I may have found my first 3 toed horse tooth. I looked at Hulbert's Fossil Vertebrates of Florida book. Photograph D on pg. 292 is a right m1 or m2 from nannippus aztecus. It appears pretty similar, but I'm not sure about size. Nannippus Aztecus would have been in Texas from late Miocene to Pliocene, so region would fit. And I think @garyc has found a nannippus on the Brazos before in this general r

    Texas Gulf Coast Beach Find

    At first I thought it was petrified wood but it has some odd molar like shapes another side I've never seen before in a tree or in petrified wood. Found washed up on the beach at Matagorda Island, Texas, near the lighthouse. It feels very heavy for it's size like the density of petrified wood.
  23. I found something new (to me) in differentiating the two most common (Hemiauchenia macrocephala and Palaeolama mirifica) Llama/Camels in the Florida fossil record and decided to share. One differentiating factors is the presense of crenulations (Palaeolama mirifica) or lack of crenulations (Hemiauchenia macrocephala) A couple of month back I found what I believed to be a Hemiauchenia macrocephala lower left m3 molar. Note the relatively narrow enamel height. Lots of root, less enamel than I expected. Bother by this difference in enamel height, I wondered if this wa

    3 teeth and half a mandible

    Hello all. I have a few fossils for you guys to take a look at. Hope it’s ok if I stick all 4 of them in one topic. My father pulled these out of the wall or side of a 50 m/164 ft deep lake on one of his diving expeditions, Vinkeveense Plassen in the Netherlands. The lake where these were found was formed when a layer of peat/turf was removed to be used as fuel, below it was a vast layer of sand which was dredged up to a depth of about 50 meters m / 164 ft. The fossils themselves were found at depths of 30 m / 98 ft to 40 m / 131 ft. As my dad
  25. Hi everyone! I recently got some Florida Pleistocene fossils and I'm having some trouble identifying them. I think the first is a wolf molar and the third is either a turtle or alligator claw but beyond that I'm stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
