  1. Bison I.D

    Im in talks to purchase a Bison fossil skull but am unsure what species it is . Is it B.antiquus , B.priscus or B. Bison and simply darkened ??? It measures 25" wide x 21.75" tall and was apparently found in Nebraska .
  2. Molar Position

    What position is this molar from? Am I correct in thinking the m3 molar is the only molar with a third lobe? As shown below. I believe its bison bison m3?
  3. Old bison bones

    Found these bones about 8 foot down in a cut bank along a river. Suspect bison.. any help appreciated. Have more pics if needed. I included the cut bank. Believe whole skeleton to be there, did not find head yet. Thanks
  4. Bison

    I know what this is, but wanted to share. Really obvious tool marks!
  5. found this tooth in the London Thames River. from what i have read it could be an old bison tooth and not a cow tooth. im hoping its a bison tooth. it surely feels like stone its heavy. but i am no expert. hoping somebody could tell me if it’s fossilised and which animal it comes from. some people say the isolated stylid on one side makes it look like a bison. somebody else said the great size of it could mean bison. thank you so much for your help.
  6. Hey guys, here's a fossil hunt I did with my Dad. We absolutely crushed it with a fossilized dire wolf tooth, a huge bison vertebra, two extinct Florida camel vertebras, a gorgeous extinct peccary tooth, some Giant Armadillo scutes and a few other things to boot. Hope you enjoy!
  7. Identification help

    I found this on the banks of the Trinity River in the DFW area of Texas. I spoke with an archaeologist online who guessed it to be bison or bovine of some kind. He guessed that it was considerably old because he could see mineralization in the photo I showed him. All I can tell is that it is a thoracic vertebra, approximately 3 1/2 in by 4 in in size. I cannot tell if it is fossilized or just a bone nor can I tell if the color is due to age or sediment discoloration. Would love to know what anyone thinks and if they could point me in the direction websites that might have answers. Thanks!
  8. Possible Ice Age Bison Tooth?

    Hi. i found this fossilized tooth a couple of years ago. It was found on the beach on the north end of Amelia Island, Florida. They dredge sand to restore the beach fairly often which makes for great sharks teeth finding. So. Is it a bison tooth? Any guesses on age? Thank you for helping me solve this mystery.
  9. Brazos River Pleistocene Bone

    Found this big chunk of bone on one of the gravel bars in the Brazos last week while the water was still low enough to walk around. I have a strong suspicion that it's part of the proximal end of a bison metacarpal, as that's the only thing that it seems to resemble in pictures I've compared it to online, but if someone more knowledgable in these things than myself could confirm (or completely disprove me, that's welcome too!) that would be great.
  10. Texas City Dike Bison Tooth?

    One of the only fossils I managed to find at the Texas City dike this weekend, which is well-known as a site for Pleistocene fossils from the Beaumont Clay formation that are pulled to the surface during dredging operations in the nearby shipping channel. I know this tooth isn't Equus, so maybe bison? Any help would be appreciated!
  11. Bison bones?

    Hey guys, friend of mine found these bones in Calgary/Alberta while excavating near the river (about 5ish m deep). I figured the head looks like bison, but not sure about the rest of bones. And how old they might be. And anyone knows what’s that white stuff inside of one of the bones? Like calcified bone marrow? Any opinion would be greatly appreciated!!
  12. Jaw from gravel layer

    Good afternoon, I found this earlier today in a Travis county creek (Central Texas)...the area where the bone makes a Y is throwing me off for it to be a jaw....however the fossil world is a humbling one so I’ll ask y’all for the ID. The bone is fossilized and did come from a gravelly alluvial layer. I have found paleo artifacts at this particular bend, do y’all notice that area which appears to be cut? Might just be an area for tendons to pass by, anyways thanks
  13. Southeast Texas Pleistocene Bones

    I've been searching the gravel bars in the Brazos almost every day this week while the water is still low enough to get down there, and I've collected a pretty good assortment of fossilized bones. Most of what I've found have been fragments that are totally unidentifiable, but a handful still have some significant features that could lead to an ID. There's too many pictures to post all at once, so I'll reply a couple times with more. Thanks for the help! This first find is definitely a tooth and is the only piece I have that isn't from the Brazos, instead I picked it up on a trip to one of the small beaches north of the Texas City dike. I'm thinking bison, but I'm open to suggestions.
  14. Santa Fe tooth

    Hey guys, Around 2.5 years ago I found this tooth in the Santa Fe River in Florida, which is Pleistocene. I previously IDed it as a bison premolar (Bison antiquus), but looking back I am now less convinced by that ID. The chewing surface seems off, and seen from the top it seems a little too 'rectangular'. Due to its relatively small size, if it is indeed bison, could it possibly be a juvenile (hence explaining why it looks a bit different from normal bison teeth)? What do you guys think? I can provide more angles if necessary. Thanks in advance, Max
  15. Brazos River Bison/Horse Jaw

    Found these two teeth still attached to a segment of jawbone on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston today. They're definitely mineralized, so I believe I can rule out ordinary cows. However, after doing some research online the teeth seem to be much too flat to be bison, so maybe horse? They both look like molars, although one of the roots is broken off of the first tooth - I honestly have no idea how it managed to hang on for so long. Either way, I was incredibly excited to find this, especially after braving the 90 degree plus heat for several hours without sunscreen. Any help on an ID would be much appreciated. Thank you!
  16. Oklahoma Skull

    Not sure what I have. Any info would be appreciated. Out of Oklahoma.
  17. Mammal tooth?

    Hello everyone! New member, just joined today. Great to be here! I live in Huntingtown, Maryland in Calvert County. Lots of Meg teeth and Miocene era fossils. Was trying to get some help identifying these mammal teeth. I found them on the Patuxent River right up from where I live on an embankment that backs up to a cliff. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Have been told Camel but not sure.
  18. Mammal teeth

    From the album North Sulfur River

    What's neat about NSR is that you can find Pleistocene-aged remains right next to the bones of marine reptiles from the Late Cretaceous. The river flushes everything out of the walls and mixes it all together.
  19. So ive been walking caspersons beach at night quite a lot and last week i really got the hang of what days and times are best to go looking based on tides. I went searching two nights in a row and found a ton of stuff! There were some awesome sandbars that made wading for larger fossils super convenient. I found a horse tooth, bison tooth, two partial mammoth teeth, a whale ear-bone, and a bunch of other stuff including a nice little meg. Take a look
  20. Bison?

    First,I hope I’m not doing this wrong, but had trouble posting in Fossil ID for some reason. I hunt a several mile portion of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, Ok. I’ve previously gotten help with identification from the University of Oklahoma on a number of Bison bones, vertebrae and horns, as well as bones from smaller vertebrates. However, that’s a lengthy process, so I was hoping for suggestions on what this bone may have belonged to. It’s shiny because it’s been coated with clear enamel. I’ve had it for several years, but it just occurred to me that it’s dissimilar to my other Bison bones. Obviously, there was some deterioration before it began to mineralize, and one end is missing which makes it very hard to ID. Any help or suggestions is much appreciated! I can take and add more photos if anyone wants, just let me know what angles, etc. Thanks!
  21. Bones 3

    Some finds of the year
  22. Please help ID this

    Hello everyone. My husband and I found this today while combing the creek bed of the Escondido Creek located in Encinitas, California, USA. We believe it is a tooth. It looks quite old, however I am not sure whether it is fossilized. We are not fossil hunters or collectors, just everyday amateurs who stumbled upon this find. Any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
  23. Hello, My 6 year old son found this in a remote central Indiana creek yesterday. We looked a little online and it looks similar to a bison tooth but was hoping for some expert advice. We love the colors and were surprised how well it was preserved. We came across this site and wanted to see if anyone had any information. He was wading in the creek looking for shells and just pulled it out of the water. Thanks for any information you may have along possible age. He is so excited and can’t wait to show his teacher on their next video call.
  24. Bison Fossil?

    Greetings, About 2 months ago, I found this in the Kansas River, under a submerged stump at the end of the sandbank. The location was on the South side of the River just north of DeSoto, Kansas. I found it along with another large vertebra which I will also post separately. As it started to dry out in the dry indoors of winter (despite the humidifier on my heating system), it began to flake apart...the surface patina that is. The measurements are as follows: 11.5" (L) x 3" (W) at its widest width. I suspect it is a bison, since these are the most common. I just don't have a clue as to age. Secondly, is there a way to prevent the further flaking apart? Thank you all kindly in advance. PS: having trouble shrinking enough images to the required size limit.
  25. Possible bison find?

    Hey everyone, So I found some old bones as I was out hiking yesterday (a good way to social distance ). I have a suspicion they may be bison, but I realize I am in ag country were cows are plentiful. I found a scapula, a chunk of upper jaw with teeth, two femurs, and one mandible. I have been trying to possibly identify them but I have no way of proving anything without some help. I grabbed a cow skull, scapula, and mandible at a friends farm to help compare. I guess I should also point out that I believe these have fossilized- they are heavy and the burn test seemed to yield no burnt hair smell. Photo 1: Fossil Scapula (left) vs Cow Scapula (right) So the scapula I found is bigger but I don't believe that is conclusive evidence. Photo 2: Fossil upper molars (left) vs Cow upper molars (right) It appears the fossil molars are larger than the cow molars.... possibly indicating a larger bovid (aka Bison)? Photo 3: Fossil mandible (below) vs (Broken) cow mandible (above) I know the cow mandible is broken (and the opposite side as the mandible I found) but it is shorter and has more bulk at the bottom of its lower jaw curve. Not only this, but the dentary also appears different. Well everyone, what do you think? Just a regular old cow? Or something more unique? Thanks!!!
