    SE Texas Ivory or Snakewood?

    Well...either way it's a first for me. Looking at some unusual rocks that I've found over time I looked at this little 1/2" piece that I had...and I think those are Schreger lines on the ends making me think this could be a very small piece of tusk?!? Then I heard of snakewood so could it be that instead?? Either way....either one would be a 1st for me so I'm cool either way. Thanks for your thoughts.

    SE Texas - chunk of bone?

    I thought wood at first but I'm thinking this might be a chunk of bone from a large mammal? It's about 17 inches in length. Can you tell what it is? A femur?
  3. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    SE Texas - bone chunk or wood?

    I found this a while back and wasn't sure if it was bone from a large mammal or a thick piece of wood. It's completely mineralized and heavy. If it is mammal...I know an ID is impossible without ends but I'd have fewer choices to choose from.
  4. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas - enamel or rock?

    Found this little piece...I think it's enamel...just wanted to be sure. I get fooled by lots of rocks from time to time and this may be no different. And if it is enamel...could it be horse or mammoth? I've found both in the same area.
  5. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas - small vertebra

    Here is a small vertebra that I found. It's completely mineralized. It's pretty small. Don't believe it to be horse or cow. Deer is my go to. Just not sure about the triangular shape of the opening and the flatness of the body.
  6. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas - axis to what?

    This is an axis...dens and cranial articular surface showing. Can't figure out if it's horse, cow or bison. I don't think it's cow because an image I saw had a notch or groove on the dens but maybe it had damage to it. My example also has the notch or groove on that cranial articular surface.
  7. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas heart shaped vertebra

    These smaller ones like this are difficult for me because even the cows and horses had little ones...plus the earlier horses were smaller. This is missing a lot but the vertebral canal is round and the body is heart shaped. It's mineralized but pretty busted up. Wish I could find a complete unbroken anything.
  8. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas leg bone

    Found this in an area where I find a bunch of other Pleistocene material. I can't figure out what it is. It is eroded at the ends but hopefully the pictures can help me get an ID for it and what it might be from.
  9. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Horse or Cow vertebra?

    I am thinking this is a horse vertebra..it also has the transverse foramen (foramina?) There are so many vertebrae to different large mammals it's difficult to ID them. I usually see images of one or two vertebrae from each animal...but i think sometimes what I need belongs to one of the other 9 or 10 I don't see.
  10. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas phalanx bone 2

    I found this other very eroded phanlanx....which would this also be a proximal phalanx? The end has a cross shape I thought was unusual and not like the other one in the previous post. And could this be horse or cow?
  11. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas leg bone fragment

    Probably won't be able to ID the mammal on this fragment...but can anyone tell me what bone this one is? It's split at the end but it also has that intention in the 1st picture.
  12. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas phalanx bone 1

    Think this is the 1st or proximal phalanx...but from a cow? Horse? Doesn't seem big enough for bison.
  13. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas vertebra - erosion shaped?

    This vertebra is pretty eroded. But it has an unusual shape to it...where the transverse foramina are the bone there is really thin...or it's just eroded and throwing me off. Same with the top view...the shape just seems different from the others I've found. Or it's the erosion again. Any idea what its from?
  14. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Crushed bone or wood?

    This looks like bone. It's solid as rock...fully mineralized. However, it appears crushed. The inside looks like it's been compressed and smashed. I'm 100% positive an ID is outta the question....definitely not enough to go on. I just wanted to make sure it was bone vs wood.
  15. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas small bone

    This little thing looks like a bone. There's matrix on it that's rather tough to get off and when I tried...it seemed to take a layer of bone with it so I left it as is...for now. I don't know if it's some kind of phalanx (toe bone) just based off its size. If so...from what? Sorry if the matrix makes it difficult...I thought there might be enough of a shape that someone might recognize it. Thanks for any help.
  16. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Is this bone, wood, or concretion?

    Found this thing on a gravel bank...just thought it was unusual. My 1st thought was that it might be a small bone with river worn edges...seen it before with other bones found. But for it's size it seems too thick with the hole going all the way though. It has some bone like texture on the inside and outside. Then again those could be some natural made scratches from something or it's a piece of wood. Can't tell. Maybe someone has seen something similar. And it is completely mineralized.
  17. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Texas tooth from what?

    I found this tooth today...and my 1st thought was that it is an incisor from a horse. But I noticed that it is laterally compressed (flatter) compared to 2 other horse incisors that I've previously found and am including in the last photos for comparison. It doesn't seem to be missing anything on the sides and has some enamel at the end which I'm not sure if its broken or not. There is a small hole at the crown side. I'm sure there's a horse expert here that can confirm it is one. I've included ruler photos as well as in my hand which was clearer. Just thought it was weird and different

    Texas bison axis vertebra?

    I found this big vertebra awhile back here in SE Texas. I think it might be from a bison based on it's size and shape...not sure of the species and I can't figure out the age. It has some mineralization to it. Typically what I find in my neck of the woods has a darker color and is heavy when I think of Pleistocene material. I understand now about tannins in the water and not using it's color as an age factor to go off of (which i typically did)...and also about where and for how long the bone sat in the ground before exposure can determine its mineralization and also it's color. I've been told

    Texas unknown scapula

    I have these 2 scapula that I've found. The larger one is heavy and has some mineralization to it and I believe this one to be from Equus based on some 3D images I've seen online. The smaller one is fully mineralized and solid as rock. It has some wear in areas that would have made an ID much easier...but despite the smaller size it doesn't seem to match the horse scapula and I can't find anything online with this noticeable groove that the horse scapula lacks. Any thoughts?

    Small Texas tooth

    Found this small tooth here in SE Texas. It's missing part of its root and appears to be worn at the chewing surface. I couldn't find horse or cow to match up with it nor deer which is what I usually find. Any thoughts?
  21. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Small Texas vertebra

    I found this small vertebra on a SE Texas gravel bank...it is pretty small. I'm not sure about vertebrae with the triangular opening versus the round opening. Do mammals have both in a column? It is rock solid and fossilized but I don't know what it's from. I have a picture with the measurement but had to hold it to get a straight photo. (Need to get some putty).

    Skull Fragment with Ear Bone?

    I had some spare time this week and have been going back through unidentified finds and sorting the ones where I think an ID may be possible. Based on what I've learned, I think this may be a cranium section with ear bone visible. But I can't figure out what animal it could be. Any ideas are appreciated.
  23. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Unusual Rock?

    I found this on a gravel bank here in Southeast Texas...I didn't want to leave it because I thought it was pretty unusual. Well, for me anyway....I don't know much about rocks...but in all my years I haven't seen anything like this. It's probably common as can be and easily identifiable to the rock guys...but I thought it was cool as heck on account of the amber colored porous section on top, swirl pattern in the middle and the greenish blue bottom. Different colors, distinct layers. Oh, And I spend a lot of time looking at the rocks trying to find fossils so this did stand out easily to me..
  24. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Horse Incisor?

    Found this tooth on a gravel bank here in Southeast Texas. I think it's a horse incisor...Equus? If it is that...how can you tell the age of an incisor? It has a nice color to it by the way plus it's the first incisor I'll have found. I have found lots of Pleistocene material in the same area.
  25. johnnyvaldez7.jv

    Equus upper cheek tooth?

    Found this tooth on a gravel bank here in Southeast Texas. I think it's an equus upper cheek tooth? I haven't found one this small...so my question is - Was this from an older horse and it's been worn down to this size? It seems fossilized or heavily mineralized. ..solid as a rock.
