Rodent teeth in matrix?
Brandy Cole posted a topic in Fossil IDSo I picked up a small piece in the sandy, South Texas Pleistocene gravel the other day because it looked like there might have been some tooth enamel, but it was so covered in a sandstone matrix that I wasn't sure what it might be. The sandstone wouldn't come off with water, but when I dipped it in vinegar last night, it started to melt away. I pulled it out quickly and rinsed it with water and realized it looks like a set of top and bottom front teeth. Maybe rat? My problem is this: the matrix is hiding a lot of detail here, and I'd ideally like to clean it off comp
ParkerPaleo posted a fossil in MammalsPalaeolagus ('ancient hare') is an extinct genus of lagomorph. Palaeolagus lived in the Oligocene period which was about 33-23 million years ago. The earliest leporids described from the fossil record of North America and Asia date to the upper Eocene some 40 million years ago.
rabbit tibia? Please help with ID
D.N.FossilmanLithuania posted a topic in Fossil IDDear Guys, I have found one strange leg bone fossil in Late Pleistocene sand layers of South Lithuania, Eastern Europe. It is 15,5 cm length and I think it is not an ungulate. The most similar as I saw in the pictures should be rabbit but I am not sure. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas

Rabbit? Gopher? Lagomorph?
Sacha posted a topic in Fossil IDI'd appreciate a little help with an ID and perhaps clearing up some confusion I'm having with Lagomorphs. A couple weeks ago I posted this photo which was verified as a lagomorph which, for some reason, I assumed was rabbit (although it closely resembled pocket gopher in Hulbert's book). I found this in Florida's Santa Fe. The peg like teeth were diagnostic. Yesterday I went to the Peace River and found this little (1/2" x 1/2") piece of maxilla (?) with 3 molars in it. These teeth resemble Jackrabbit teeth in another
Post Your Bunny Pics Here
mikeymig posted a topic in Member CollectionsI’ve had more then a few fossil, rabbit (Palaeolagus) skulls from the American West over the years but this one is my favorite! The nodule this skull is in looks to me to be part of a burrow. Maybe that’s why the skull is in such good shape. I have had this specimen in my collection for many years but I really haven’t spent any time on photographing it until today. Please add your bunny skulls to this thread. Thanks Mikey
