    Even More fossil Identification

    I got some more bones from Botna Bend near Oakland Iowa from the pleistocene and I really appreciate all the help, helps me learn.

    Cave bear fossils

    Hi all, does anyone know why fossils from Cave bears usually are very lightly colored? The dentin and enamel in their teeth also look like they've hardly even been fossilized.
  3. I was asked if I would create a post to detail how I arrived at an ID for the Calcaneum I recently posted for consideration as fossil of the month (Feb, 2023). To start, immediately below are some photos of the Calcaneum in question. It's from the Beaumont Formation of Fort Bend County, TX, so it's likely Pleistocene in age. To start with I initially compared this Calcaneum to another in my collection from the same formation I'd previously identified as Cervid (likely Odocoileus) that seemed to be a similar size, but I was immediately struck by how different they looked excluding si

    Fish tooth

    I found this tooth (half) in a pleistocene lag deposit outside of Summerville, SC. A local guide, author, etc. said it was a fish tooth, but he couldn't remember off the top of his head what kind. Is anyone able to ID it, or is "fish tooth" the closest I can get? Thank you!
  6. Hello everyone Wanted to share one of the many things that have me stumped. The hunting spot is from dredged material from the river that has been deposited on a man-made island that has a mix of Miocene and Pleistocene era fossils. This looks like it is made of enamel and doesn't have any porous fossil bone structure that I can see. It looked at first like a very worn bit of a small plate of mammoth tooth enamel. It has what appears to be a peak and valley on part of the crown on the occlusal/top side (possibly a plate tubercle?). It is completely flat on one side and has a slig

    SC Low Country Vert ID

    I realize it's quite the task ID'ing shark/ray vertebra... However, I am hoping some of you will be generous enough to share your input on these finds from a recent trip to Summerville, SC. Larger vert measures 1-3/4" X 13/16". Smaller guy is 3/4" X 5/16" and I'm hoping for sawfish on that one, which would be my first! The last pic is simply for your viewing pleasure, because it's the most unique looking vert I've ever found with that root leaching! I also understand that I might not get far with the bug guy, but thought it was large enough to get detailed enough pics
  10. So had a couple VERY productive diving days towards the end of last month, and I’m finally getting around to posting. Went out with a couple of off-forum friends. So I’ll post the finds, and then a little story at the end with the best find. Starting off with teeth - Paramylodon harlani M2, dire wolf canine tip, beaver molar, 2 capybara molar chunks, a partial tapir tooth, 2 raccoon jaws, one with a tooth: Bison premolar, camelid premolar, tapir incisor, partial Dugong tooth, dolphin tooth, and a modern (ish) pig symphysis with an unerupted canine:

    Have I found something?

    Hi Everyone I'm an absolute newbie with no idea what I'm doing or looking for but had a fine time doing it. Exploring around north Canterbury New Zealand in an area known for yielding some great fossil discoveries. I found a number of oyster shell layers as well as some smaller crabs and other shells embedded in various rocks. When overturning some larger rocks I found this half buried underneath of one. I thought it looked interesting but again as I'm not really certain what I'm looking for it's likely nothing- but thought would post here as a learning opportunity. Size is approxi

    Fossilized Arizona Human Footprint (?)

    Let me start this off with two disclaimers: 1- I am sorry if this post would be more appropriate on an archeology forum. I would think that it would be fine here, however, because the "footprint" impression does appear to be fossilized. And because I have yet to join any archeology forums. I anyone has a recommendation for a good archeology forum let me know. 2- Being almost entirely engulfed in learning about just the Cretaceous of my local area, paleoanthropology is a bit out of my purview. So bear with me if I sound like I don't know what I am talking about. Because

    Llama Camelid Earbones

    As some note, I am trying to identify mammal ear bones found in SW Florida (and hopefully other Southeast US locations. In this case, Camelids. Hopefully with assistance from @Plantguy and @Harry Pristis I found this single photo on Worthpoint, probably put there by Nate. identified as Hemiauchenia. On August 23rd, 2009 while searching at Quality Aggregate Pit in North Fort Myers, I found this land find. It's length is quite large just under 3 inches. I have come to believe that it comes from either Hemiauchenia or Mirifica, the 2 fossil camelids in the Florida

    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?

    Jenneria loxahatchiensis

    An endemic species from the Middle Pleistocene of Florida. A single extant species, J. pustulata is found in the Eastern Pacific (California to Peru, Galapagos and Hawaii). Fossil species of the Genus are concentrated within the Caribbean Basin prior to shortly after the closing of the Central American Isthmus. Reference Smith, M. 1936. New tertiary shells from Florida. Nautilus 49(4):135-139.
  17. Is it hard to find materials from giant short faced bear (arctodus simus)? Cannot find its material online other than the ones from museums. Could anyone share their arctodus simus collection or any photos related to arctodus simus materials? Would be really grateful to see some of them!

    MORE IA Pleistocene Fossils Need too ID

    These fossils come from Botna Bend in IA, in the Nishnabotna River and are late Pleistocene age, can you all tell me what you think these peices are? From my tell its some kinda herbivore jaw chunk, maybe a horse hoof and this flat peice I have no idea.

    Texas - Ivory or fossilized wood?

    I've had this with a bunch of unusual rocks I have cause I believed it to be fossilized wood. And it still may be, but I saw other post of Ivory pieces found and Schreger lines...and I thought this might qualify. The lines are throughout l each layer. I don't know anything about Texas fossilized wood and the trees from then...perhaps someone who does know Ivory and Schreger lines can tell me if this is that. It's a 3.5 inch piece.

    Texas - Pleistocene jaw bone?

    Found this cool little fragment yesterday. It's completely mineralized. Found it sticking out of sand which I don't usually find stuff in a bunch of sand...it's usually on a gravel bank. So I am happy with it. I find Pleistocene stuff here and i know it's 99% likely that I won't know what it belonged to...but...can anyone give me a thought on what bone it is. I thought perhaps a jaw bone...maybe because of that curve on the one side. But I dont see where teeth or root would have been nor do I have any good jaw examples anyway so I'm guessing. On the end...I don't think it ended there...I thin

    Texas - small jaw bone?

    Size: 1.5 inch Like the larger example I recently posted...this looks like a jaw bone but from something small. It's solid rock - completely mineralized. I could be waaay off...but to me it just seems like it is one. Doesn't look like other bones I've found other than the larger example and I've eliminated others. The owner of this won't be identified...not enough to go on...but hopefully what bone it is will.
