Pathological Proximal Tibia?
CDiggs posted a topic in Fossil IDHi Fossil Forum! This past Monday I was searching my favorite gravel bar in SE Texas and I came up with some pretty great finds including my first ever ground sloth claw core but there was one object that has me and a few other people scratching our heads. I'm assuming that along with all of the other identifiable bone fragments I've found at this spot that this dates to the Pleistocene but there is Cretaceous invertebrate material and petrified wood that possibly date from the Eocene through the Pleistocene that I've found here as well. On to the mystery object! This a
Animal Or human ?
Yoyo posted a topic in Fossil IDCrossing the Guadalupe River ( a Texas State Park) today when one of my dogs picked this bone up out of tree ramble/debris in the water. I thought it was very interesting, so I snapped a video and set it down on a boulder. I had plan to pick it up on my way back out. But I forgot all about it and took a different route back to my car. I am home now, going through my pictures and ran across the video. As you may imagine I’m really worried it might be a human bone, . Can y’all help me out with what you believe the bone to be. Human or animal. for reference I am 5’5”

Brandy Cole posted a topic in Fossil IDHad a good trip down to the river this weekend. Found several pleistocene things. I've been identifying things, and I'm going to try to post them in a trip post later this week. But very unsure about this one. Right now I don't even have a good guess.
NE Kansas | Kansas River | Bone ID
FogOfGrass posted a topic in Fossil IDHello. A quick introduction. I have been walking the kaw for decades and have amassed a collection of artifacts and bones. What I have not amassed is the ID skills, especially between bison and cow. There are hints in the area I hunt that at one time, long ago, a butchery that either has eroded off the bank or they discarded items into the river. Guessing it was near Grantville, Kansas. So it can be a bit confusing for me between that and how the river deposits in general can age at different rates depending on where they’ve been hiding out. I really look forward to getting to kno
Equus Tibia & Mammoth Tooth Fragment?
Pseudogygites posted a topic in Fossil IDHi everyone! I'm now living just outside Saskatoon and I am working with the University of Saskatchewan's Museum of Natural Sciences. The Saskatoon area is largely undescribed in paleontological literature, so I have been visiting various sites around the city in the hope of finding some fossils. I found these specimens in sediment exposed by construction excavation. I have several other bone fragments from this site, all exhibiting mineral staining, but they are likely ribs and vertebrae which are difficult to identify to the species level. The first is clearly a mammal limb bone. I believe i
Bone Id help
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil IDThis is another bone I picked up last week in the Peace River. I have been trying to ID it but think maybe it will have to be put in the "chunkasaurus" pile. I was leaning toward a section of sloth or other mammal tibia. Any help would be appreciated. Bone is almost 6" long x 3" at the wide end tapering to 1.25" and 2.5" high. The curvature and tapering of the bone is what led me to think possibly a section of sloth tibia.
