    Is this turtle rib bone?

    Hi everyone! When I put some cave breccia into liquid of acid acetic and water and this one came out. It long and slim seems doesn’t fit to any mammals that I know. When I used hammer to break the cave sediment, it broken into 2 part. This cave contains a lot of fossil from Pleistocene but mostly found are tooth of mammals. This is the first time I tried acid to preparation if there bone or microfossils. so please tell me if you know something about this bone. Thank for reading!

    Some paint added

    Aloha. here are two 3d printed models I showed before. The Turtle is selfmade, the Spino not so. I took the time to paint them and quite like the result. Pondered to give the Spino the reddish colour one often sees with fossils from kem kem, but decided rather to colour the "matrix", which is in fact a piece of treebark. Best regards, Jan

    Turtle Nuchal Bone

    Despite how common they seem to be in places like Florida's Pleistocene deposits, I've never been able to find a complete turtle nuchal bone here in Texas's similarly aged formations until just this last week. Unlike almost all of my other Pleistocene finds which have come from the stretch of the Brazos River closest to Houston, this one is from the adjacent and much smaller Colorado River. Since the Brazos has been high all summer due to the extreme amounts of rain we've gotten this year I decided to try out some nearby locales and they did not disappoint. I've got a couple more posts to make

    Turtle Bone

    From the album: Lower Cretaceous Vertebrate Fossils of Central Texas

  8. I'm putting out an open call for any collectors who have any reasonably complete tortoise or turtle material from the Peace River (or its tributaries) or even possibly Bone Valley material from the quarries in the area. I'm working with Jason Bourque in the fossil prep lab on the campus of UF here in Gainesville (presently working on an 18 Ma gator skull from the Thomas Farm site). Jason is reassembling some turtle specimens that had been collected in Florida that have been languishing in the collection for decades. He's presently reassembling a giant tortoise plastron collected in the 1980s.

    Turtle Head Fossil

    First South Carolina Fossil hunting trip

    Made my first fossil hunting trip to South Carolina, went to some areas around Summerville, thought I’d share pics of some of the fossils I collected! The best finds were some echovenator-like teeth, Angies, great whites, some intact sections of dugong ribs, and several associated pieces of a sea turtle shell. Felt like Indiana Jones exploring all the creeks trying to find productive spots haha. Fun trip, hope to return in the future!
  12. I was in the badlands of nebraska in May and found a half turtle, dug it out and brought it home. However I did not pack it well enough to survive Fed Ex it was bounced hard enough to crack the internal mud into multiple pieces. I am now trying my ability on a 3d turtle puzzle. I multiple pieces yet to place, but I have one piece that I have not idea where it belongs. It is a little different. After I removed the turtle from its resting place in nebraska, I looked around the extraction site and the immediate area for anything I missed. this piece is from that final harvest. IIs it a
  13. Hey Gang, I acquired this fragment as I was extremely intrigued with the pattern as it was described as Glyptodont. I've been still playing around with turtle fragments oh way too much lately and my brain is saying this is not Glyptodont and wants to say the textures and groove pattern and polygonal nature are perhaps an ossicle or maybe ossicles from something like Psephophorus polygonus. Are the surface grooves sulci? Its not completely flat on the bottom has a general irregular arch to it and varies in thickness from 1 to 1.8 cms.. Does

    Cretaceous scute to identify

    Help needed ! I prepped part of this bone with the highest difficulties because of a thin crust of iron sticking to the fossil. It comes from continental cretaceous of South of France. Before going further I would like to identify it to assess if it is worth the trouble . I hesitate between a Nodosauridae scute and simply a... turtle scute. I took pictures of the top (under the thin remaining matrix it is all bone), sides and bottom (which is totally unprepped and may never be, just note it is flat)
  15. Hi everyone! I recently got some Florida Pleistocene fossils and I'm having some trouble identifying them. I think the first is a wolf molar and the third is either a turtle or alligator claw but beyond that I'm stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Bones in TX

    Found some bones sticking out of the creek bank in Central TX. Area has confirmed Mastodon remains. Tusks and a tooth all found within 1/4 mile of this site. Bones are 12 feet below the top of the bank. I did a little digging around today to get a feel for what it could be. It appears it could be a large pelvis bone (4-5 feet wide). I also found a small bone that appears to be from the foot/toes etc. Not really sure how I should proceed. Is there any educational value in this type of bones? Who would one contact to ask? I am sure Mastodon bones are fairly common.

    Season Ending Hunt

    Yesterday I made one last trip to the Peace River to end this hunting season. When I checked the depth and flow gauges it showed both had increased as a result of recent rain but not enough to make a trip unsafe. The one caveat was the prediction of rain and possible thunder storms in my target area by 2 pm. It is really the threat of afternoon thunder storms almost everyday now that is the impetus to end the season. So, I got an early start and was on the river by 7:40 am with the intention of calling it a day by 2 pm. I headed back to the spot I have been digging in for the last four tr
  18. I found this encased in limestone at a dig site in Wisconsin, USA. Its composition seems unusual for anything else at that dig site. It was deep inside limestone and most of the limestone easily pulled off with little effort. Is this an egg? It measures approximately 6.35cm x 4.5cm
  19. I haven't posted in a while, but have had some pretty good hunts over the last couple of years. This year has been busy with work. I made it down to the river for some fossil hunting for my first time in 2021 last Friday. I had a really nice day. The weather was beautiful. I had great visiblity. I'm hoping to go again tomorrow. I took some photos of some of the days finds. First photo: - One of the things I was most excited about is a potential talon of a bird of prey. It is broken, but you can see it in the photos below. I am pretty exc
  20. Hello everyone, I found a turtle skull for sale. Unfortunately I am not experienced enough to tell if it's a real skull. What do you think? Many thanks in advance.
  21. Back on the Peace River yesterday. Another cool start to the day, 63* F when I launched at 8:00am. Headed back to where I found the camel cuboid last week and found there was still plenty of gravel to sift through. The morning progressed with a couple of nice, if partial, alligator teeth, many small shark teeth (nearly 200 by the end of day) a partial deer tooth and a couple of turtle leg spurs (5 for the day). The afternoon produced a couple of unidentified bones I will have to research and a very nice Llama astragalus - Hemiauchenia macrocephalus. Makes sense after finding the cuboid la
  22. Got back out to the Peace River yesterday, returning to the spot that gave me a nice bison tooth on my previous visit. It was 67* F on arrival and breezy. A bit unusual for Florida at this time of year! The water was warmer than the air temp. It was also a little deeper, more cloudy and running a little faster due to rain the previous night. I paddled up stream, portaged over a small area of rapids and was digging by 8:30am. Started off in the last dig spot but was turning up nothing but small shark teeth. It was enough to keep me encouraged but not enough to keep me from feeling the c
