  1. Mastodon Bones Found in Indiana

    While digging a sewer on an Indiana farm, workers find mastodon bones. Seems like these stories come up all the time, but I still like reading them. https://abc7chicago.com/science/mastodon-bones-unearthed-on-southern-indiana-farm/5263190/
  2. Possible Toe Bone

    Good evening, i found a bone that I believe to be a toe bone of a mastodon or mammoth. The bone was found in the Neuse River in Craven County, NC. Thank you in advance for assistance in identifying this piece.
  3. NJ Possible Mastodon Find

    Hey everyone, I have this possible Mastodon tooth “cone” from NJ. I know it is a fossil, meaning it’s got to be Cretaceous or Pleistocene because of the area it was found in, and it really doesn’t look like any Cretaceous bone I’ve seen from here. That shiny inner stuff on the inside (the concave side) of the item reminds me of enamel; it led me to conclude that this is a partial “cone” of a mastodon tooth. I don’t know much at all about mammals, but it appears that the shiny stuff is what’s left of the enamel/cementum/whatever it’s called that would have been on the inside of the cone. That inside part also has cracks running lengthwise and an uneven surface. The outside layer (on the more convex side) of the possible mastodon tooth cone seems pretty worn away and may have had a whole entire layer of enamel covering it before the wear. It’s about 1.5 inches. @non-remanié This possible remain will most likely look significantly different than fragments from other states because NJ’s preservation is usually different. I’m going to tag some members that I think are experienced with Mastodon remains from other states. @Harry Pristis @PrehistoricFlorida @Shellseeker @digit @jcbshark @Gatorman @RickNC Thanks guys!
  4. Mastodon bones & teeth

    Here are the larger bones that have been dug along with the teeth. Also have a box of smaller shards.
  5. These have only been out of the water a very short time. Are there preservation steps that I should be taking or will they be fine if placed under glass and out of the sunlight? Thanks for any information.
  6. Found these mastodon teeth

    I found these recently in a river. I know nothing. Are these quality? Can anyone share information about them? Possible age, etc?
  7. Whale vertebra?

    I was in a Texas museum yesterday and was looking at a case of primarily pleistocene fossils. This vertebrae was labeled mastodon, but really doesn't look like any mastodon vertebrae that I've seen. We don't generally find whale vertebrae where i look for fossils, but this hits me and I definitely don't know whale, as possibly whale? Vertical thickness is approximately 4-5 inches, 10-12cm. There is no other labeling other than mastodon. Sorry for the quality of the photos, dark lighting and a hand held camera.
  8. I'm trying to identify the polished fossil material in this Georgian English snuffbox, circa 1760 to 1820. Is it mammoth ivory? Walrus? Wood? Something else? The material is set in unhallmarked sterling silver. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Adam
  9. Mastodon tooth enamel?

    Here’s another find from the same north Texas creek. I’m thinking it’s a fragment of mastodon tooth enamel.
  10. Possible Mastodon Tooth Fragment

    Good afternoon, I went out to the beach by the old scout hut at Cherry Point and found several interesting items. I believe two of the pieces are fragments of a mastodon tooth. I will try to post as many pictures as possible. Thank you
  11. Florida Pleistocene Teeth

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and figured this would be a good first post. I was wading through Peace River and found a couple items that I need help identifying. The first I'm guessing is a tooth or nail. I can't find it anywhere in my Florida vertebrates book. It has a circle in the middle, which may help the identification process, as I have never seen this before. The second item is what I believe to be a piece of Mastodon tooth. There appears to be a crystal grey emamel on the tip of what I think is the root. Any help would be greatly appreciated. .
  12. This was the year of the Mammal for me. The antler piece was given to me by my friend Bill who ONLY keeps shark teeth-he also gave me the meg pieces in the previous post. The 2nd piece in the picture I can not id. Pictures 3-5 is this a deer tooth? 6/7 horse? 8/9 piece of mastodon tooth? 10/11 mammoth tooth piece, 12/13 looks like tooth material?, 14,15 looks to me to be ivory? mastodon or mammoth? 16/17 looks like the baleen groove for a baleen whale? I have a number of other large bone? pieces that i will post later as part 3 to try and see if identifiable as well as some interesting modern stuff. I did not post the bryozoan material I found either. Thanks for looking and any corrections, suggestions or comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
  13. Mastodon or wooly mammoth

    Dug up from the sand about 30 feet below ground close to the red river
  14. This mastodon tooth was apparently found in Florida in 2016. The blackish spots look like they are crystals/minerals that have replaced part of the tooth. Also, on the backside, it appears that there is plaster from when it was wrapped up. I still don’t know if it is real or fake though. Please help! Thanks!
  15. Florida creek hunt

    Had a pretty decent haul today.

  17. Short NSR Hunt!

    I got in a 3 hr hunt before the rain and flooding. Once the water started coming up I had to make a quick exit but still got wet. I managed to find a few things.
  18. I walked in tracks all day hunting but still managed a few finds. I really like the coprolite full of little fish bones and the Pleistocene horse ankle bone. I believe the little fish jaw is Saurodon.
  19. Mastodon tooth found in Iran

    https://www.aa.com.tr/en/culture-and-art/20-mn-year-old-fossilized-mastodon-teeth-found-in-iran/1263438# http://www.irna.ir/en/News/83042732
  20. I was shark tooth hunting and found this fragment on Casey Key, Florida 9 years ago. I recently went through my stuff and found 3 pieces of Mastodon Tooth Enamel. So I'm not sure if it's too small to ID but has a interesting wood grain pattern with enamel on the top. Can you ID it? Thanks FF!
  21. Everything is dry and picked over around Northeast Texas but I decided to go hunting anyway. Luckily I found a nice shady creek to hunt. I found one nice Mastodon tooth cusp with great color and a couple of artifacts. My buddy found a few rough artifacts and one nice shark tooth.
  22. Good Evening, I saw an image in my fossil book of an enamel cusp from a mastodon tooth that looked similar to my chunk. I found it in SW Florida and its a about 1 1/8" x 3/4". It's caramel and black in color with a few red spots and highly polished. It has yellowish fragments of something in the bottom of the indentation. Could this be tooth fragments? All replies are much appreciated.

  24. Neat mastodon rib bone for sale that I’m interested in. Can more knowledgable tell me if this is indeed M. americanum given that it’s just a bone fragment? Fossil is from north Florida
