  1. Hello! Need help. This unusual vertebra was found on the Oka River in the Moscow region. Related findings - mammoth fauna and other animals; up to 12 ... 15 million years. Fossilization is uneven. In my opinion, the age of the animal is from 30 to 150 thousand years. The vertebra is like a horse; smaller, but the canal of the spinal cord and the lateral canals of the same size are large. Cranial bulge (bump-hinge) - triple; the two protrusions may have been functional. There is a hole - shown by red arrows. Part of the vertebra is destroyed due to the hit, in my opinion, of the spear of an ancient hunter - the “stone tip” stuck in the bones and partially in one of the small lateral canals. I still have poor understanding of the vertebrae. My interests are the Stone Age, human activities. I suppose it's a cervical vertebra; relatively long. Perhaps these are ancient horses or giraffes. The functionality of these two protrusions is incomprehensible; what are they for?
  2. For the last year I have been working on the first part of my 3D animated documentary series about prehistoric Earth. The first episode will take you to Hadean eon 4.6 - 4 billion years ago and tell about the formation of our planet, moon, emergence of water and, finally the first life. The full documentary is pretty much done and is being edited at the moment (voice over, sound effects, etc.). Finally, here is the trailer for Part 1 (everything is CGI and done by me). Not sure yet about distribution methods. Anyways, here is the teaser:
  3. Found this while hunting dinasur bones in Montana. Hell Creek formation very visible around the find and we usually recover dinosaur bones but this was odd. Want to know what kind of bison and how old it is.
  4. Strange writing on this rock any ideas

    I found this on a canyons this morning in Thousand Oaks California
  5. Old Bone or Ancient Tool fossil?

    I found this piece of limestone that seems to be too much of a coincidence for it to fit in my hand just right. It almost reminds me of the manubrium of the sternum but then I thought it could maybe be an ancient carved tool. It could also be just a rock :-). Any help would be appreciated.
  6. Youngest Diplodocus Ever Found!

    Fossil of young long-necked dinosaur found—and nicknamed Andrew I thought this was interesting.
  7. FOSSIL or ARTIFACT?

    I found this in a fossil bed along with some clam fossils I was finding near Globe, Arizona. It was sitting in a depression on the ground near an exposed limestone fossil rift. The white band goes all the way around symmetrically and the rock type does not match anything in the area. is it a fossilized turtle shell, or nut maybe? or an indian artifact, or just an out of place rock?
  8. Old Bison Horns?

    I'm not sure, but I found what I think is the top of a bison skull with the horns. I found it in central Iowa, sitting on a sand bank in the middle of a river/creek. Could someone tell me if it is? The horns are kind of straighter like an ancient bison, could someone estimate the age and tell me if they think it is? The horn spread is just over 21 inches. It seems pretty old and almost fossilized. Thanks for any help in figuring it out. I'm really interested in what you have to say.
  9. Elk Teeth

    I know this isn't technically a fossil so I hope it is allowed here but I'm looking for confirmation. Can anyone confirm that these are elk teeth? Thanks!
  10. What mineral did this wood turn to?

    This petrified wood was found in Gainesville, Missouri. Trying to identify the mineral that replaced this wood. Also if possible, some rough idea of age.
  11. Ancient Sea plant?

    This looks like a fossil, but I'm not sure. Need your expertise to identify.
  12. Petrified Mushroom?

    I believe this is a petrified mushroom I had dug up a couple years ago..i am wondering if it has now become amber..it is translucent when a bright light is against it..if anyone knows about this type of mushroom I would be interested on any info...thanks
  13. What fossil is this?

    I found this neat-looking fossil shell in my backyard. It is a rock with shell fragment with almost a full shell on it. I live 200km away from the ocean though, so whats it doing here? Can you identify what type of shell this is, and how old it is? It seems to be around 10 million years? The shell seems thick, so maybe its extinct?
  14. Possible Bivalve?

    Hello! I was on the beach recently when I found a rock with an interesting marking. After returning from the beach, I took a look at it. It did look like a fossil to me. I took a nice look at this "fossil" and found out it could be a Bivalve. It is clear it is in pretty bad condition- I cannot tell what parts of the "fossil" is sandstone and what parts is the actual shell. Even though it is quite deteriorated, someone might know what it is. If someone knows anything about this "fossil", tell me. Thanks for the help. Bye! Brachiopod
  15. Possible 3D Fossil Found

    Never found a fossil before so please bare with me. Let me know if I have something here or not. Looks like some sort of bug because of the pattern on the backside. Also, I couldn't get a super close shot cause I'm using my iphone to capture the pictures but I could see what looked to be wing like veins or patterns in one part of the fossil.
  16. More Than A Rock

    Howdy from the heartland! My family has been arrowhead hunting and artifact collecting ever since I can remember. I use to go in the fields with my UncleJohn before the cancer got him. I continue to get out on the creeks which is a place I absolutely live to be. I have a so-so collection but I have had many hardships in my aging and have a limited assortment remaining. I had interested in learning about urgery replacing c6 last year with titanium, some screws and the bone grafts of two very precious donors. It is difficult for me to carry my head low for lengthy periods however I am getting by. I totally love arrowhead hunting but I mostly just totallllllly LOVE rock hunting in general. I also have been hunting with firearms since I was a little 'retriever' for my mom at age sevenish... I was taught early how to hunt and prepare the game and i am very good at it, thank you mom! I am very interested in discovering what I have found...I am ignorant to what all I have but I am totally aware that I have some very precious artinfacts or artifacts. U see the love in every instrument every fossil everything! my ears are listening my mind is taking notes and my eyes are wide open...up for discovery!
  17. I found this pottery shard on the beach. (North of San Francisco, California). It is fossilized, and after taking a picture of it, something had me turn the picture into a negative. Tah-dah - there is the writing. Can anyone help me know the history, or meaning, of this ancient piece of history? I would so love to know any of what the ancients had to say. Thank you in advance.
