  1. Hi all, I was recently gifted a lovely fossil from a friend. He told me it comes from a reliable digger from Sangiran and it is a rhino horn. However, I have my doubts Rhino horns as I understand, are made of keratin which means they do not fossilize easily. Also, this fossil here is almost surely a bone. My friend tells me it is permineralized keratin but I am not sure if I agree with that. While there are indeed lines that flow from the base to the tip, I can't tell if they are carved or not My friend mentioned this is a river find, hence the

    Rhino? From Indonesia. ID request

    hafa adai I recently purchased a flat of fossils from a guy I've been buying from in Indonesia (I know a guy... LOL). The ID card with this one said "rhinoceros", Miocene from Java, Indonesia. I have only ever seen rhino molars from there, which this is clearly not. Internet searches for rhino incisors however, yield teeth which are more tusk-like. I'm not really familiar with rhino dentition, so I thought I would appeal for assistance. Is it rhinoceras? thanks!
  3. I have here 3 Indonesian Megs. They were declared as no repairs or restorations. I now have them in person, and they look fine. I ran them under a UV, and I am suspicious of the dark spots on the roots, but I think that may be some of the top layer of the root leftover while the rest of the root eroded. Additionally, the second tooth may have some restoration to the left side of the serrations, near the base of the crown. I'd love some more eyes on this please, does anyone see any red flags? Thank you, Bellamy First Megalodon

    Great White - Indonesia

    I have here an alleged Carcharodon carcharias tooth from the Pliocene of Surabaya, West Java, Indonesia. It's 1.8 cm in length. I have my suspicions because it looks wide like a Meg. I'd like some further opinions. Thank you, Bellamy

    Indonesian Shark Tooth

    Hi everyone, I have here a 1" tooth identified as a Megalodon from West Java, Indonesia, allegedly a new creek locality. I know that smaller Megs may not necessarily have bourlettes, but there do not appear to be serrations. This could probably be explained by river wear. In any case, might this be a Meg, or could it be something else? Best, Bellamy

    Exotic Megalodon Dealers

    Hi everyone, I've been looking for a Megalodon from one of the more exotic localities in Asia. The problem is, most of the dealers I know stick to those originating from the United States. I've found some on various auction sites, but I don't wish to get into that because I'm not very experienced in spotting fakes and reconstructions. I would be more interested in someone who you've had fruitful dealings with. If anyone could PM me suggestions for dealers to contact regarding teeth from these localities, I would appreciate it. Thank you, Shayan
  8. Since this forum is often visited by new collectors. Note: intention for this post is not to hurt resellers, but caveat emptor: The market is currently flooded with megalodon teeth from West Java! Although the first specimens started to pop on the market already about 2 years ago or earlier, anyone nowadays still telling you megs from West Java are rare, is joking. It has become clear! There are millions of meg teeth in Indo-Australian archipelago, and the simple fact that they have been generally overlooked by collectors and resellers in the past decades and years, doesn't make J

    What teeth is this?

    Hello. Found this teeth in Sangiran, Java, Indonesia. Looks like omnivore teeth. Maybe wild boar. Any idea? The length measurement in the pic was in cm.

    Megoceras ID

    I bought this fused vertebrae Saturday. It was listed as being from a Megoceras from Java Indonesia. I can not find any mention online if a Megoceras. So I am wondering if the fossil was labeled wrong and it's from something with a similar name like megaloceros. Any ideas? Thank you

    Stegodon Tooth

    From the album: TEETH & JAWS

    Stegodontidae is another family of Proboscideans, however there is debate on whether it is a valid family or if it belongs to Elephantidae (Shoshani and Tassy, 1996; Saegusa et al., 2005). The group is comprised of two genera Stegolophodon and Stegodon which are thought to have evolved from gomphotheres. They were among the largest proboscideans to roam the planet. They [stegodontids] had low crowned teeth (brachyodont) with peaked ridges indicating they were browsers or mixed feeders in a forested environment. This is in contrast to the high crowned plated molars of mammoths and elephant

  22. Well, I sure feel like a nitwit! Remember this topic I made, about how it's wise not to throw away your supposedly-fake fossil, because even the experts can get it wrong? > http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/57593-this-is-why-you-shouldnt-discard-your-fossils-even-if-they-are-supposedly-fake/ Guess what? You guys were right all along - It IS a fake, or at least, the root is. So for 2 years I've been trying to ID the tooth. It looks like the crown of a croc, yet has a full root. I asked the seller, but he was adamant it was a real tooth. I checked with several other expert
  23. Over a year ago, I blindly purchased a large impressive-looking tooth from a seller who didn't even know its ID simply because it was cheap. On arrival it broke, and after consulting the forum and facebook groups, the general consensus was that it was fake. Even museum curators I respected told me that it was a crocodile tooth joined to a fake root by someone who tried to emulate a mammal one. Having been (apparently)scammed and feeling snarge lousy, I was >| |< this close to throwing the fake root into the bin. But one other collector who bought from the same seller was vehement
  24. Hi all. I recently picked up this lovely specimen of a crocodile tooth. It came from the Solo River of Java, and is most likely 200,000 years to 2 million in age. I am aware that there was more than one attempt to identify the Solo River crocodile fossils in the past, but without any conclusive results. > http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/41300-crocodile-fossil-sangiran-indonesia/ It has two distinctive ridges that run down either ends. My extant Siamese Croc teeth have these ridges too. However, this croc tooth is slightly straighter and more cone-like. The bottom is q
