  1. Herbivore teeth ID.

    Found these teeth with a bunch of other items on a lake beach today. Anybody know what they could be? I have some modern sheep, horse and cow teeth. None of them compare, I do not have full sets of teeth to compare either. These ones are much harder and wiegh much more than the ones I have. Any ideas?
  2. Texas City Dike Bison Tooth?

    One of the only fossils I managed to find at the Texas City dike this weekend, which is well-known as a site for Pleistocene fossils from the Beaumont Clay formation that are pulled to the surface during dredging operations in the nearby shipping channel. I know this tooth isn't Equus, so maybe bison? Any help would be appreciated!
  3. Help with a bone chunk

    I'm not expecting much on an identification on this one. I'm more interested in understanding if there is a way to determine if a bone chunk is from a marine mammal such as a whale, porpoise, and sea cow, or if it is from a land animal. I am attaching a picture of a chunk of beach bone. I dont normally keep unidentifiable bone, but some about the nice color and density made keep this one. It is about 5 inches at its longest and a couple inches thick. One side is flat and smooth. Another side is broken in cross section and lighter colored. The grain in the cross section is dense. If anyone has some thoughts on generally what it may be or even may not be, I would appreciate it.
  4. Mystery Vert, Calvert Cliffs

    Hi all, I found this strange vertebra today in a small creek that flows into the Chesapeake Bay. If it's a fossil, it is from the Calvert Formation. It's unlike anything I've seen before, and certainly not a cetacean vert, so that begs the question: what is it? I have not done the burn test on it yet to confirm it as a fossil, but can anyone identify it based on morphology? I believe it to be from a large terrestrial animal, but I'd like an expert/experienced opinion. Thank you in advance!
  5. new and not sure

    this piece was found on the chipola river in Jackson county florida. im not sure if its a fossil or not. any ideas will help me research further. thanks
  6. Santa Fe carnivore canine

    Hey guys, Here's a partial canine that I got from Cris & Kyle around 2 and a half years ago. It's from the Santa Fe River in Florida, so Pleistocene in age. I've compared it to several canines online, and my best guess right now is spectacled bear (Tremarctos floridanus), but I feel like it could also be a lower canine from a dire wolf (Canis dirus). It doesn't seem cat-like to me. What do you think? I can provide more angles if necessary. Thanks in advance, Max
  7. Ear bone ID help

    After a lot of research and luck, I discovered that one of my finds a couple of weeks ago is an ear bone. Found in Nebraska but still not sure which critter it came from. I am tagging @Shellseeker and @Harry Pristis because I know that they were involved in some past ear bone discussions. The second photo is one that I found on the web from a site selling an ear bone that they claimed was from a woolly mammoth. Thanks
  8. Strange bone from Russia

    This bone was found on Azov See shore, Russia. Probable geological age is late Neogene (Miocene or Pliocene). I don't know what this thing is: metacarpal, metatarsal or calcaneus? What a strange hooked process on the proximal epiphysis that is not characteristic of the metapodium? I'd like to get your opinion.
  9. Odd shaped bone need ID help

    First bone I have found with this shape. Found in south central South Dakota. Miocene
  10. Another old tooth

    Not sure about this one. Looks a little different than my other horse and bison teeth.
  11. Very old tooth

    I have a pretty good idea of what this is but I would like to hear from the experts!
  12. Florida mammal tooth seeks identity.

    Good day, fellow TFF'ers! I need your help in identifying this tooth. It was "seeded" in a bag of Florida matrix I received from the forum's owner through his website. The matrix is only described as from the Miocene, and the seeded material from Eocene to Pleistocene, all from Florida. I have searched for hours online as to what this tooth might have belonged to and have come up with nothing. I'm sure at least one of you will know immediately, so please, help a girl out in giving this tooth its identity back.
  13. Tooth ID required

    Founs around 15 years ago in my garden in West midlands, England. We live in a town, not near any countryside. Any info appreciated.
  14. Bone Id help

    This 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.
  15. Yes, I realize that mammalian fossils in Illinois are extremely rare, however, this appears to be a fossil, based on rock being present below the layer of red. This was found near the Illinois river in a dried area.
  16. Horse Tooth?

    Hi everyone! Found in the Peace River,Florida Bone vally The tooth on the left is obvious horse tooth. It is 1" (25mm) wide and 1/2 inch (12mm) tall. The tooth on the right is the one I am wondering if a horse tooth can get this big or is it something else. it is 1.5 inchs (38mm) wide and 1 inch tall (25mm) across the top at the widest point. What do you think? Thanks!
  17. Bison?

    First,I hope I’m not doing this wrong, but had trouble posting in Fossil ID for some reason. I hunt a several mile portion of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, Ok. I’ve previously gotten help with identification from the University of Oklahoma on a number of Bison bones, vertebrae and horns, as well as bones from smaller vertebrates. However, that’s a lengthy process, so I was hoping for suggestions on what this bone may have belonged to. It’s shiny because it’s been coated with clear enamel. I’ve had it for several years, but it just occurred to me that it’s dissimilar to my other Bison bones. Obviously, there was some deterioration before it began to mineralize, and one end is missing which makes it very hard to ID. Any help or suggestions is much appreciated! I can take and add more photos if anyone wants, just let me know what angles, etc. Thanks!
  18. West mersea Pleistocene fossils

    Hi guys, these teeth are most likely Pleistocene due to the presence of glacial deposits at the top of this beach, the teeth are also heavily mineralised so although teeth found here could be modern, these should be fossilised 1.partial horse? 2.massive horse no idea to species 3.?

    Found this tooth the other day at a miocene exposure along the Potomac River in Virginia (Westmoreland State Park). Hoping someone can help me identify Thanks in advance - Mitch
  22. Verts

    Unfortunately I have no information on location other then southern western US these were bought at auction. Any ideas if these are dino or mammal verts? There’s 2 sets of 7

Thank you as always to the community! size is 1.25 Ince (31mm) wide and same from top to root. The teeth themselves are fully intact and small about 3/4 inch (19mm) the tooth on the left in first picture and 1/2" (12mm) on the right Hawthorn Group, Peace River Formation, Bone Valley Member which ranges from Miocene to Pliocene.
  24. Indiana Mammal Tooth

    I found this tooth in my backyard creek along with several deer teeth and fossil bone fragments. This tooth was the odd one out and I just think it's not a deer.
  25. Potential bone fragment (?) fossil ID.

    Hello, everyone! Welcome to my first post! After lurking for a while I’ve finally created an account because I have what I think is a fossil but I’m unsure of the ID. i bought this particular specimen from a rock shop in South Dakota, USA about five years ago. The guy who sold it to me said it was a section of mastodon bone, but obviously I don’t fully trust what comes from a guy at a rock shop. I am about 95% confident this is actually a chunk of fossilized bone, however, as it’s weighty, passes the lick test, and the internal spongy structure of bone is visible on either end. I apologize in advance as the tape measure shown is in inches. I could not find a metric ruler or tape measure anywhere in my house. At its widest points the specimen is about 13.3 cm by 8.5 cm by 3.5 cm. I know most of this info is vague and I don’t have an exact location for the original collection. Any help with even a broad ID for type of bone (if it is one) or what animal it could belong to is appreciated. It may also be worth noting (as it is not totally clear from the pictures) the longest edge of the fossil is relatively flat and smooth, I mention this because I feel it may be an important diagnostic characteristic. Thanks!
