  1. NSR Texas

    The North Sulphur River was picked over but I still managed to have some good finds.
  2. Florida tooth ID

    Hi! Can anyone help me out to identify this partial tooth? I was told that it belongs to a white-tailed deer but i don't see any similarities with it, cause i do have also partial tooth from that type of deer? The chewing zone on tooth although partial doesn't look to me as a deer tooth. So what it could be then? I know that is found somewhere in Florida and that belongs to Pleistocene period. It's pretty strange though. Darko
  3. Pleistocene pelvic bone?

    I found this bone tonight in the Dallas creek, just above the limestone layer (Pleistocene). I can't seem to match with any other mammal bones. Can somebody ID this? Sorry about the rubber band. Bone was broken in half when I dug it out.
  4. Bison hoof core

    I found this large bison hoof core last Friday in SE Texas. The small one is one that I've had for years and seems t be typical of those I've seen on the forum and on the internet. (It's about 3.25", 8.2 cm long). The large one is close to 4", 10 cm. Does anyone know if this could be from bison latifrons? As a note, I and others have found material likely from latifrons in this area. bisonhoffcores2.bmp
  5. I had posted a poster of Florida shells of mine earlier but could not zoom in enough so I am posting individual fossil shells in hopes of getting correct identifications or adding to photo database. I am new to this so please gently guide me if I am not following a proper procedure or posting in an incorrect place. I have many high quality photos but am not sure where to put them. I can't seem to create a gallery for myself. Help Please? Thanks, Scott
  6. Florida Fossil Shells

    I don't know where to begin. I am completely new to the forum. I will eventually be posting some fossils for help with ID and others that are identified by experts already. Having said that, this poster represents some of my fossils. I am not sure if can even read the names underneath. I may have to post separately. Any ID corrections would be graciously accepted. What I really need help with is locations. While living in FL for several years, I would go to a couple of locations in Polk Co. where I knew road base, I believe it is called aggregates were often kept. I visited and collected. What I don't know if where the shells originated. APAC Pit in Sarasota, Aggregates Pit in Bonita Springs, Star Ranch Quarry, Clewiston, Cochran Pit in Labelle to name a few possible locations. Based on the shells collected, it would seem that most come from either the Tiamiami or Caloosahatchee Formations, not sure which members....Pinecrest Beds, Bermont, Ayers Landing Ft. Denaud etc. How do I know what collection data to include on my label. I can list where I found it, but it is not its origin. ID is pretty ok with Petuch's works, but if I don't know the origin, it makes ID much more difficult. Any input or ideas to help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. I have included a sample collection label for anyone to comment on how to improve. One is more vague since I don't know origin, the other is from a fossil I purchased. Date on label was date I added to my collection. How important is it to list the taxonomist such as Petuch or Conrad etc? scienceteacher79
  7. Leg bone connected to? Iowa river

    Another piece my son and I found was this partial, it was not found with the others but in a tributary half a mile away?
  8. New river finds in Iowa

    My son and I found these yesterday in a few inches of water right next to each other. I would guess they are most likely to be from the same creature. From other posts seen here I would guess bison? Thanks for looking!
  9. New fossil hunter here! I recently moved to Florida for graduate school and was quickly introduced to fossil hunting. I've been addicted ever since. Here are some images of the first fossils I've found here in North Florida. Mako for sure, but can anyone confirm what kind of bone I have? I'm thinking it *could* be mastodon rib, but that's just an amateur's guess. Anyways, I'm excited to continue showing my finds! Baby meg pictures to come...
  10. On a whim I decided to stop by the Big Brook site in NJ to see what might have washed up after the rain yesterday...not a lot of shark teeth at all but plenty of weird mammal bits for some reason! I'm not good at all with figuring out mammal material so I figured I'd post some pictures to the forum and get people's thoughts. (Also I suppose it remains to be seen whether this is genuine Pleistocene material or stained, semi-recent bones...) These are smartphone pics (& Android at that) so excuse the quality. This first one is a tiny jaw of what I'm assuming is a rodent of some kind - the size is really throwing me off here. The same jaw is here on the bottom alongside a couple goblin sharks, plus an end of a random limb bone up top. Horse teeth? (The ends on both are broken, unfortunately - these are the most distinctive edges) (image size limit reached, more in next post)

    Bos taurus - Pleistocene the bank of the LENA river Russia
  13. From the album Vertebrates

    Juvenile Woolly Rhino (Coelodonta) Jaw - Pleistocene the bank of the LENA river near of the city Yakutsk (Yakutia, North Siberia), Russia.
  14. Mammoth Tooth?

    More river finds in Minnesota. I'm fairly certain this is a mammoth tooth fragment. My buddy, (again!) see my previous post, found this on a gravel bar. I have to say this has me very excited to go hunt with him. The size is 6.5” X 3.75” X 1.5” and the layers fluoresce under UV light
  15. Recently I went to a property in NSW with hundreds of limestone caves after a member of our fossil club invited us on a trip there. I had never even considered going caving before, caves terrify me, but for fossils? Why not. The particular cave we went down was relatively easy, 11m straight down but there was a convenient tree limb above it. Not a fan of abseiling, but again, will do it for fossils. There are better caves in the area for fossils but didn't get around to going down them as we only had half a day, so maybe next time. Once at the bottom of the hole which was the opening, we went down into the actual cave. It was an amazing place; a lot of fantastic limestone formations in a small cavern with a number of other passages and holes we could go down. One of the places we found Pleistocene fossils was under the floor of the main cavern. A wide but shallow cavern was underneath that had bones cemented to the roof. Most had eroded out however. Another passage led down a couple of metres to a different fossil deposit which is where we collected from. A tight squeeze was needed to get through to the face of the deposit so its not a place for the claustrophobic. Heres a photo of that particular face, and some bones that had eroded out of it as well as modern animals that fall in much the same way as their Pleistocene predecessors. A layer of flowstone had formed over the face. The bones here were quite busted and fragmentary as many people had been in here before us and stood on them. I only collected teeth and jaws as they are much more interesting than fragmentary bones IMO. here are some of our finds: Macropus spp. . Vombatus sp. Lizard, perhaps a Tiliqua sp.? We also found a few other things which I will post after they're identified. Also, here is a paper with some more info on the area. And note that these were collected with permission. Thanks,

  17. Mammal pleistocene fossil

    cześć, Jakie zwierzę to kość? Hello, What animal is this bone?
  18. Conifer cone or catkin

    I found these lignified plant parts that sort of look like conifer cones from the Pliocene/Pleistocene Merced Formation along the Coast just south of San Francisco. Douglas Fir and Monterey Pine cones occur in the same formation. What are they? Could they be alder catkins? Top photo: cone is 1.5 cm high. Bottom photo: longest cone is 4 cm. Thanks, John @paleoflor
  19. Bone? Or raw jet?

    Hello again! Can any of you lovely people help me with this one? Could be a chunk of raw jet, but hoping it's a pliestocene bone. This was collected on a beach in the North East of England. I know there are large deposits of pliestocene stuff just out to sea. But there are also large deposits of raw Jet too! Whitby is about 70 miles North and is famed for the stuff. Can you eagle eyed lovelies help me? Also - what should I look for in future? This is super interesting! Thank you
  20. Cave Lion??

    Hello. First I wanted to thank everyone who responded to me regarding the "bear-dog-Hyena" pictures. I have since identified the specimen as Pachycrocuta brevirostris. So for those of you said "Hyena", you were correct. At first I though it might be a Dinocrocuta, however, areas of the skull simply did not match up. Anyways, I have attached pictures of what I am sure to be a Eurasian Cave Lion. I would like to know if these specimens are common since I may be in the position to purchase it. Any opinions are greatly appreciated. Thanks again.
  21. Fossil Horse Tooth?

    This is the first larger mammal tooth I came across while fossil hunting for megalodon teeth in South Carolina. Tooth was found in a stream in the general area between Charleston and Summerville along with some Meg teeth. What do you suppose this came from? Camel, horse, giant ground sloth?
  22. Pleistocene mammal bone ID please

    Hello. I went down to local creek today and found some interesting mammal bones. These bones were found in 5 to 8 feet below the surface layer, but just above limestone gravel layer. I'm thinking this maybe some large animal, but does't think this is a cow bone since buried too deep.
  23. I’m fairly certain this is a piece off a large bone from a mammoth or mastodon. Can anyone recognize what bone it’s from? Pelvis??
