Partial scapula? Please help with ID
D.N.FossilmanLithuania posted a topic in Fossil IDDear Guys, Today I found small piece of huge bone, its largest width is 5,4 cm, the joint does not look complexed (only one pit like surface). I think it is part of scapula or long bone. The fragment was found in Varena town, South Lithuania (the Baltic Region). Please help me to identify this fragment if anyone has comparable material or know the photos of the same bone in internet. Any help will be appreciated! Best Regards Domas
Skull fragment with tusk like cavity- the second elephantid?
D.N.FossilmanLithuania posted a topic in Fossil IDDear Guys, Today I found one very interesting piece of skull, as I remember I have showed you one non- mammoth elephant skull fragment that was between 1,5 and 3,2 cm thickness. Today's fossil is very similar fragment, also with brain surface but it has one cavity that reminds me of tusk place. This skull fragment also have some cavities but very few, and it is little thinner (between 0,9 cm and 2,3 cm thickness (it is thicker in the place of possible tusk). I would think it is also from rare elephantid or maybe hippo (because it is thinner)? Please help with ID of
Please help to confirm Cave lion antherothoracic vertebrae from Lithuania
D.N.FossilmanLithuania posted a topic in Fossil IDDear Guys, Few days ago I found this thoracic vertebrae of quite big carnivorous mammal, it is 6 cm length with spineand has some very interesting relief features. The bone was found in Varena town, South Lithuania. There are some building sites where the sand of latest ice age dunes is deeply mixed up. By me this vertebra looks very similar to big felid like cave lion because I checked one publication with bones of Anyui lion. If you see the same features of lion vertebra here, please help with confirmation of this interesting find. Best Regards
Irish elk premolar? Please help to confirm
D.N.FossilmanLithuania posted a topic in Fossil IDDear Guys, Yesterday I found one premolar tooth that is 1,7 cm width and 3,5 cm length with root. The tooth was found in the sand dune layers of Varena town, South Lithuania (it is the Baltic States, Eastern Europe). Judging by flattened end and the vertically twisted relief of tooth I would think that the most possible should be Irish elk because the premolar teeth in its lower jaw looks almost the same. Please confirm this find or suggest your ideas, any help will be appreciated! Best Regards Domas
