  1. I’m almost certain this is not a fossil, but didn’t know where else to go. My buddy found this tooth/tusk in his attic and I’ve been having a tough time telling for certain what it is. No idea where it was found. Sperm whale was what first came to mind, but I don’t see a very clear boundary between the crown and the root. Doesn’t seem to match smilodon, walrus, boar, or any other similar possibilities that came to mind. Does anybody more familiar with this type of stuff have any idea what we’re looking at? He confirmed that it’s hollow which is another check in the sperm wh
  2. Hi there I've always wanted a sabertooth skull, and for the past year i see many coming the same seller among other fossils from our favorite auction site. They never really explain how much of the skull, eggs, pssitacosaurus, is authentic and not responded to messages. Do you recommend these products? Thanks!
  3. Real or not? 15 inches long. "Expertly prepared"
  4. South American Smilodon Skull implies 1000 pound cat! https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/14/science/saber-toothed-tiger.html
  5. Hello all, Recently I purchased a pair of tooth from a seller who sold me real keichousaurus and another real frog fossil based on forum opinions. He says this pair is from the same animal. I don’t even know if it’s Smilodon or Machairodus, nor do I have information about locality except that it was originally from China. Main reason I’m asking the forum is that as this is my first time owning saber cat teeth I’m not sure if they are always this light? 31-33 grams per piece only. It doesn’t seem cast with the great amount of detail. And about restoration it was broken and repaired,

    Smilodon gracilis find

    In January 2019, I found this Smilodon gracilis partial left dentary in coastal South Carolina. I am finally uploading it because it was finally positively identified by a paleontologist last week. The m1 is complete, and the p4 is broken off, but the roots are still in the jaw fragment. This was the smaller relative of Smilodon fatalis which only had a p4 and a m1 instead of a p3, p4, and m1 on the lower dentary. Page 216 of The Fossil Vertebrates of Florida has a picture that is a perfect match. This is definitely the best find in my collection (outdoing the Dire Wolf K9 from last Decem
  7. Any idea if this tooth belongs to dinosaur or Sabre-toothed tiger? It is said to be found from Ganzhou of Jiangxi in China.

  10. I found this upper canine from a Smilodon for sale online. The number of surface imperfections lead me to believe the tooth is authentic though it could be a particularly well done cast. The seller has a couple other Smilodon fossils both of which seem legitimate. However the fossil is coming from China and I hear falsified fossils are very common in China. I would greatly appreciate another opinion thanks.
  11. I just saw this Book on Amazon and wondered if anyone heard anything about it. It releases June 2018 and was hoping its not a reference book like Cenozoic Mammals of Africa by Lars Werdelin!

  13. Tooth. Found in Poland by the river, on the beach among stones. Tooth resembles a predatory tooth "Smilodon", but maybe from a different period, for example jura. Is the marine reptile? Look at its curvature and structure in macro pictures. I am asking for help with ID

CBC News, Oct 25, 2017 http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/yukon-scimitar-cat-fossils-paleontologists-1.4372037 The paper is: Paijmans, J.L., Barnett, R., Gilbert, M.T.P., Zepeda-Mendoza, M.L., Reumer, J.W., de Vos, J., Zazula, G., Nagel, D., Baryshnikov, G.F., Leonard, J.A. and Rohland, N., 2017.

  17. My father and I are planning on taking a trip fossil hunting this summer, we can't seem to find anywhere that really seems worth driving to. (Everything around us is basically Devonian.) We were looking for something different: Mosasaur, Arthropods (Cambrian preferred), Holocene, etc. My dad loves actual bones and I love arthropods from Cambrian. We came to a consensus and are looking for anything marine in the Mid-West. But we will take any suggestions into consideration! (We are new-ish to fossil hunting and are willing to go anywhere and do a
  18. soo, im currently trying to reconstruct some pleistocene fauna (mainly felines for now) and i have almost no problem with anatomy, muscles and such, but i do have a problem recreating the fur color, pattern and length. im currently working on the smilodon populator, and i really have no idea what to paint it, in one side, it was a south american cat, all modern cats that distribute the area are spotted and yellowish colored (ocelot, jaguar). but on the other side, it lived in the savannah, which "allows" all kind of fur patterns (plain/lion, spotted/leopard, etc). and it was a realtive of

    Book Review: Sabertooth

    a book review of: "Sabertooth" written and illustrated by Mauricio Anton. 2013. Indiana University Press. 243 pages. Suggested Retail: $50 USD. By the time the ancestors of humans were walking upright, saber-toothed cats had already established themselves as apex predators in Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America. Early humans tried to keep a safe distance but we can imagine that sabercats sometimes preyed upon them. As humans evolved over the next few million years, developing increasingly advanced tools, they began to compete successfully with them and other large predators.
