  3. Antler, Bone, Other?

    These 2 items were found close to each other in a creek bed in Northeast Arkansas near the Missouri border on Crowley’s Ridge. Because of the heavy flooding during the year that these were found, I organized my finds according to date. Every flash flood seemed to bring different oddities.
  4. I found this Ice Age fossil in Peace River, Florida.... 1+ inch length of the base of deer antler. Photos show a side view and entire bottom 'button' base, where it was attached to skull. So I think this is a shed antler.
  5. JUNK or petrified wood/bone?

    Hello first time poster. Found as is (not encrusted or buried) along the Whiskey Bridge outcrop in Bryan, TX, along the Brazos river. 4cm in length, about 1.5-1.0cm in diameter. Thought it was petrified wood but a hole at the cross section makes it look like a bone or antler? Surface pattern looks like antler. Has some weight to it and makes a rock like sound when put on a table or something.
  6. Some peace river finds

    Decided to get out today and practice some social distancing on the river, did pretty good but ended up with these two unknowns some kind of antler maybe? Or bone? a rather beat up tooth of some kind Id appreciate any help on these
  7. Decided I needed to get to the Peace River today due to negative weather heading this way. Cold front bringing rain in tomorrow night that will probably raise the river above searchable levels for several days. Temp was 55 degrees on arrival with an expected high of 80. Put the wet suit on and was glad I did. Water level was down a few inches from my last trip but the current was still moving pretty fast. Got to my target site at about 8:30 am and dug/sifted for 3 hours with very little luck. I only came up with a hand full of small shark teeth, 2 gator teeth and a small caliber bullet. Taking a break at 12:30 I was contemplating calling it a day or heading down river to find a new site. Luckily, I decided to stay in the same general area. Opted to try a past spot that had good results but had appeared to be emptied out on my last try. Due to the water level this meant climbing the bank and walking through tall grass for about 100 yards to circle back to the river at a spot where I could get back in. This is where the wetsuit actually paid off big. My past walks through the tall grass here had always resulted in getting bitten on the legs by red ants. No problem today! After getting back in the water I immediately started pulling up some small shark teeth and then a nice horse tooth came up. Things were looking up! In the next hour and a half I found a nice Megalodon, Alligator scute, Antler, large turtle shell piece, a nice Hemi, a bison (?) astragulus, and then best of all an 11"x3" piece of fossil Ivory! Sure glad I decided to make the trip today and stay in the same general area! Pictures of the highlighted finds below. I tried to get a close up of the Schreger lines on the ivory, hope you can see them.
  8. Antler

    Need help in identifying this it was found when digging holes for a fence. It appears the tip was hit with my auger and broke off since it had a fresh break on the end. My 5-year son located near one of the holes and doesn't remember which one so I'm not sure if I want to go digging all the holes to find the rest of it. Thanks in advance!
  9. Newbie wanting to learn...

    I have a few pictures here of some shards of bone, horn, and or antler. Is there a way to tell the difference between them? The first two photos I believe to be horn, bison. Number three and four I also believe to be horn because of the wood grain pattern, but because it is a small fragment 1 1/2” I suppose it could be bone? photos 5&6 look to me like a rib bone, has a woody grain to it but is very solid, thick. However, I feel this could be horn or bone. How to tell the difference? The final two photos to me just looks like a shard of river polished bone, not horn. The wood grain is much less prominent than the others.
  10. What is this?

    Looks like an antler or a tooth? Dug up by a friend who goldmines in the Yukon. I'm thinking maybe a bison? Was hoping a mammoth tusk but think maybe not. What you think? Thank you so much for the information.!
  11. Bone or Antler?

    Hello, I was just traveling for a while and I was in the Rocha Department of Uruguay an area north east of Montevideo on the coast. I was walking along the severe hightide line of the shore just in front of a formation of a large sand dune area. I came across this what I think to be bone but potentially an antler. Uruguay was home to many Miocene Mammals and other fauna. Any ideas what this may be from from? Hard and heavy stone sounding when tapped. Marrow fossilized within perhaps. Any help is much appreciated! Patrick
  12. Special thanks to Ptychodus04 for making this custom stand for my Megaloceros giganteus antler. I love it!!!
  13. Antler or Petrified wood?

    I found these in the gravel load, Brookshire Texas the gravel came from the Brazos river item #1 photos 1-7 item #2 photos 8-13
  14. I found this “Fossil” in the Netherlands near the German border about 10 years ago and have always wondered what it might be. To me it looks like part of a horn or antler. Wonder if anyone can help me out. Thanks craig
  15. pleistocene antler

    A little over a year ago, I found the larger piece of antler in a dredge pile from a canal near Ft Myers that was being dredged. My friend and I also found the jaw of a sloth, several large but broken bone pieces, a mammoth tooth and myriad bones (82 different sections, mostly about 1 " thick and about 6 " long, but unidentifiable, with several broken joint pieces) However, my question is about the smaller antler piece I found in the peace river near Wachula, FL last weekend....it is so very much smaller, not that it couldn't be, but I am wondering if it is perhaps a different species of deer, or maybe something else, like peccary?
  16. tooth?

    Dear Sir's,this is not a fossil I found.Please move if it should be in another spot.I found this beside the Sandusky river Fremont,Ohio northwest Ohio.It looks like a tooth to me and people I showed it to but is not rock or mineral.It is very light weight and has a woody feel to it.When I found it I thought it was from a recent animal so I showed it to all the hunters where I work(lots of them in this area).Was surprised none of them had ever seen something like this.There also seems to be two holes at the top of it on one side and one on the other side.One person who is really into animals and nature said it was canine but had no other ideas.Another said it looked and felt like antler to him.he also said with the holes it was possible that it was a carved from antler indian charm.Ohio had lots of native people and rivers move things a long way.I know mother nature can shape things in crazy ways to look like things they are not but the shape at the wide top is really so toothlike its hard to think this is whats going on here.I'm sorry for the bad photos I tried my best and can try again if someone asks.What do you think this may be? Thank You for any replies.......Steve
  17. Tooth,tusk,antler... oh my

    Hi ya'll, it's me again. I was given this for my collection as a gift. The guy that found it came acrossed it while sport hunting on private land in Ohio in 98. From what I've obtained it came out of a 'landslide' and was just sticking out. That is all in info I could get on it. I was thinking antler or pig tusk but my 12 yr old son swears it's "OMG MOM IT'S MAMMOTH" but I told him to not get his hopes up before I went to the experts (you all). I plan on trying to put it back together but I don't want to mess it up. Can I use super glue? If not what should I use to glue it's bits back on.
  18. River Bone, Antler??

    Hello, I found this on a sandbar that usually can not be accessed but the water level was really low. I was along the Missouri River near St Louis, MO. It looks like a bone and seems really old. Maybe an antler tine but it is kind of flat. Any suggestions on what it might be?
  19. This big section of antler came out of a river in the midwest. Whitetail, Elk, Stag-moose, and even Caribou material has been found at this location. I hunt deer and it doesn't look like its from a typical whitetail but not sure, and does not appear to be from an elk with those strange 3 wavy tines but I don't know. Wondering if anyone has any opinions on this or any experience with stag moose, elk, caribou or anything else it may be - thanks.
  20. Long time no post for me. So is this bone or antler? It is heavy for it's size so mineralization is present. Normally I am finding what I believe is Cretaceous pet wood in this area and I have found a few bits of turtle shell and what are two possible bits of bird bone also. I suspect the bone/antler is not as old as Cretaceous though I might be wrong. Thanks Robert
  21. SC River Finds

    Hi All, A few items found river diving in SC, which I could use help with ID. I've not found another Shark Tooth like this, not sure what it is: Is this a Horse Tooth? Anyone able to ID this small Mammal Jaw? Antler ?
  22. Central Texas mineralized antler

  23. Hello! I have fossil antler. Is it possible that it could be antler from Megaloceros giganteus? It is 47 cm long. Kind regards, Paweł
  24. Haven't seen antler like this and was hoping someone knows what animal it might be from? Unlike typical antler I find with convex or flat base, its base is slightly concave. Also at its base are what look like 3 additional points that are likely broken and incomplete. I looked through some books but I couldn't identify it. Any ideas?
  25. Piece of antler? North Sea

    Hi all, Same as the other one (North Sea; Pleistocene). I'm thinking piece of antler of a deer (Megaloceras?). Thanks in advance, Max
