  1. STH Bone/tooth/tusk?

    Hi everyone, I have what I thought was a mammal tooth until I cleaned the end off. From research online the end looks tusk like but I don't want to get over excited. Let me know what you think. Size is 1.8 inches
  2. Hi im and amateur collector and I'm not sure if the was the right section to post this under. I purchased this tusk a couple years ago. The seller said he's had it since the 1970s. Because of the large crack from top to bottom and the inside is quite powdery. Is there and thing I can do to preserve it? Its about 6.5 feet along the curve and 120lb so I get worried when I move it. Also I see that great patina on some tusks is that something that is added 5o make it shine or does it comes out of the ground like that? Any help would be appreciated!
  3. Proboscidea incisor

    Hi all, I wanted to know if Proboscidea incisor is just another name for tusk... I’m considering putting in a bid on everyone’s favorite auction site, but I wanted to make sure it’s tusk.
  4. Bone, Coal, Petrified Wood???

    Need some ID help please. Found on the beach in South Carolina. Roughly 2” by 1.5”. Thanks.
  5. Tooth, Tusk or Bone?

    Found in Green Mill Run creek on 8/21/2020. Unsure if it is whale tooth, some type tusk or Bone. My original assumption was Sperm Whale but some have thought maybe tusk??
  6. I found a fossil but what?

    Hi I found this rock on a rock bar in a river. Looks like a fossil. It looks similar to petrified wood. Is that what it is?
  7. I'd fossil

    I found this and was wondering if anyone thought it was a fossilized because of the blue I found it with fossilized bison teeth teeth had the same color blue
  8. Fragment of tusk or rib bone?

    I’m not sure what I have here, my best guess is a portion of tusk or rib. As always, I appreciate everyone’s knowledge and help! I’ve created a light box and started adjusting the exposure to help with quality photos. Thanks
  9. Tusk Stabilization

    This is a tusk I recovered from a river sand bar in Iowa 24 hours ago. The tusk was in somewhat damp sand. It started to degrade right away once it was unearthed. I wrapped the tusk in a towel but it did dry out a bit. I got it home about 5 hours later and re-wrapped it in damp towels. I am writing this post to spell out my plan based only on reading some other posts but not based on any experience. I would appreciate any advise. What am I missing or doing wrong? -Add many zip ties to hold tusk together. Leave crusted-on sand for now. -Wrap with damp towels and wrap that with plastic trash bags, NOT completely airtight. -Store in dry basement for several months to gradually dry out. -After drying period, carefully clean and "baste" with paraloid b-72 50:1 -Use more concentrated paraloid b-72 to glue loose parts. Lots of small crumbled pieces to deal with somehow. -Cure for several days and then fill voids with PaleoSculp (or equal) a little bit at a time. -Sand and buff -Make a stand and show off! Thank you for looking!
  10. Tusk?

    Just wondering if this was the end piece of a tusk and from what if so or is it just a normal tooth?
  11. Greetings everyone! I'm hoping someone might be able to help ID something that is not in the best of condition/shape. It's quite unusual from what I typically see/find here in Eastern NC - at first I was thinking the root of a whale tooth but it's not like any I've seen/found myself before. So, I'm hoping someone might be able to give direction if this is a tooth root or maybe even a small tusk root, possibly? There is only a tiny bit of enamel present on the tip where the tooth would be and the texture on the "inside" is somewhat similar looking to what I'd see in whale or maybe even a sliver of mastadon tooth but not quite - I tried to get as clear of images as I could but if different angles are needed, just let me know! Any help is greatly apprecaited! Found: Eastern NC - outside of Greenville - in a River- items commonly found in this same area (within the gravel deposit)/around it are large chunks of whale bone (Ear bone, rib, skull and verts), Great White, Giant White and meg shark teeth, and some shell concretions. I've found nothing indicating there is cretaceous within this small area to date and cannot recall finding any other mammal material within this location, either.
  12. Big brook finds again!

    Hello again. Ive been to big brook a couple times and have some more interesting pieces! So here we have two raptor teeth, a dwarf mammoth tusk and a dire wolf tooth...just kidding but hoping there as unique as im saying. The "theropod" teeth may just be worn shark teeth or enchodus. And the other two modern? So 4 things in total though. Thanks anyone.
  13. Possible bone/tusk

    Hi, I found this in Florida, it’s 3 5/8 inches long and was found on the peace river.
  14. Tusk

  15. Hello everyone! I found this elephant tusk in the desert a few months ago, everything I find here is very brittle, and this is no exeption. I have already set the small unstable fragments with a very small layer of super glue. Should I use paraloid? I haven't been able to find any in this country, is there any other more common substance I can use (I've heard bad things from wood glue). I still want to remove some of the matrix, but I am unable to do so because of the fragility of the fossil. Thanks in advance.
  16. Hello everyone I’ve been wondering for a while now about some pieces in my collection and whether they are genuine. Here are the three: Piece of Mammoth Tusk (pretty sure it’s fake) Cave Bear bone Spinosaurus Tooth
  17. I found this yesterday in Fort Worth, Texas. It was in a load of rock that was being used for base. I’m curious as to what it is. I hope someone can enlighten me. Thank you
  18. Had to get back to the Peace River today. Eight days since the last trip and I was getting anxious to get back to the spot where I found the partial tusk to see if i could find more. It was a warm day but overcast and windy, so the wetsuit was in order again to combat the water temp and the breeze. It made for a comfortable day of digging and I was able to spend 5 1/2 hours in the water. First check of the river bank when getting out of the kayak yielded a nice 3/4" Hemi getting the day off to a good start. I then worked my way back to the area where I found the piece of ivory tusk on my last visit to start sifting. The second sifting of the day yielded a horse molar and a few small shark teeth. Then up came a chunk of ivory tusk 8 1/2" x 4 1/4"! It looked just like the piece from last time. I then pulled up what I think is a vertebra, but looking closer I will need to get a full set of photos and post it in the ID section for review. As the day progressed I was lucky to come up another definite vertebra, a bison upper molar, a glyptodont dermal scute, eagle ray tooth plate, what looks like a fragment of a mammoth tooth with two long roots, a mastodon tooth fragment and an assortment of shark teeth. Along the way I also pulled up two more sections of the tusk - one 3"x5" that I was able to fit into the larger piece and another piece 2"x 3 3/4" along with several fragments. I will try and compare the piece of tusk from the last visit to the one found today to see if it could be one in the same. Possible it could be a pair? Here are some photos of the best of the day.
  19. Hi my name is Elias and I am new to the Forum! About a week ago I found a large piece of what looked to be fossilized bone, on Folly Beach SC. Upon further examination I noticed that it seemed to have a solid light gray center surrounded by a ring of bone. Further research has led me to believe this may be a chunk of Mastadon tusk, however the specimen is so beaten up it is hard to identify any Schreger lines. I am much more experienced in Cambrian and Ordovician fossils, and have just recently begun exploring fossils of the Pleistocene Epoch. I would appreciate any help on identifying what this is, and can send more or clearer photos if necessary! Thank you so much for your help! Elias
  20. bone or tooth?

    Hello. I spent a few hours looking around my land outside of Cabool, MO. I found some fossils, but first- is this anything cool?
  21. Identify this?

    I inherited this tooth, or claw from my grandfather. I have no idea what it is. I'm just looking for help identifying it. Thoughts?
  22. Hog Wild

    There are no wild hogs, supposedly, in Minnesota. Could this be from a domestic hog or something else all together? Found on river gravel bar in southern Minnesota.
  23. Mammoth tusk or petrified wood.

    Hello every one. I need help with these objects I recently found on my folks place in north east Texas. I believe it appears to be tusk. first I thought it was just petrified wood but I don’t know. The more I excavate the site the more that more pieces I find. I would greatly appreciate the advice and opinions. Thanks again.
  24. Help Identifying - Tusk?

    Hi- we are new to this forum and have great interest in finding out what we picked up this weekend after Hurricane Dorian on the beach in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We actually drove from Ohio Friday night to look for sharks teeth and came home with a few (nothing sizely this visit) and this piece of what we believe to be fossilized tusk.
  25. Claims of a mammoth tusk...

    Posting for an acquaintance. Someone claims this is a mammoth tusk, and they're 100% certain. I'm not so sure. I've seen mammoth tusks in museums, and up close and personal digging one out of the dirt. I don't remember longitudinal striations like this object has. Can anyone tell me what it might really be? Or confirm if it's actually a segment of a mammoth tusk? Best pictures I've got, 3rd party source.
