  1. 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.
  2. River find in Arkansas river

    Found this in the river having a hard time figuring out if it's an old cow or Bison jaw
  3. 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.
  4. My husband and I took advantage of the extra low tides and headed to McFaddin beach to do some looking. We found the usual amount of quality seaglass, and nice sea shells but we also found some bones and teeth. I think most of the teeth are bison but a couple are pretty worn and hard to tell. One tooth is a monster! We are mostly curious to see if anyone can tell what the large bone might have belonged too.
  5. I got this from a friend about 2 months back. Lately the black coating on it has been flaking off. I am not sure what it is and was curious if I should remove it or do I need to stabilize it with something?
  6. Found 8" below the sod in a bank that was cut down for stagecoach crossing by the surveyors of the Butterfield Trail in 1865. Just the end was exposed. This is in an area known to be an annual Cheyenne summer hunting camp in Southern Gove County, Kansas. Piece is very heavy, not like a dry or even a fresh bovine metacarpal. Thank you for your help.
  7. What is this tooth from?

    I work for an ecological restoration company and I work in rivers all the time. I find weird things from time to time, but I am stumped. Please help I know it’s a “petrified tooth” but I don’t know what it is from. Any ideas?
  8. I came across this online and wondered if it was indeed an antiquss or a modern bison? It claims it is a fossil
  9. Pliocene river find

    When I picked up this bone and pieces my thought was bison. Reviewing it I’m not so sure, so will I defer to the experts! I was disappointed though to see this had been run over by an ATV on the sand bar... also sad to see really how polluted our water ways are...
  10. I’m excited about this find, not only is it a fossil, form what not totally sure, but I also believe it is a tool! You can see the marks from where it has been carefully cracked. On the flat side of the bone, you can see where it has been flattened as well. If not a tool then certainly harvested bone marrow. This was found in an area close to other Clovis finds.
  11. Pliocene bone river find in Iowa

    To me this seems to be a toe or foot bone of some sort but from what? Found in an area where bison, mammoth have been found. thanks for looking and any educated guesses!
  12. Cervid or Bovid bone?

    Hello - found this damaged bone on a rock bar in southern Minnesota. A triangular piece is broke off the the proximal end. However looking at the other end, which seems intact, it does not look like bovid which is what I usually find...
  13. Horse Metacarpal Bone?

    I found this in Dallas County, Texas. I am not sure if it is part of a bison or horse or donkey, etc (equus)..... Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
  14. This was found a few inches above a layer of shark teeth. This was also found in Northeast Texas in a River bank.
  15. 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
  16. I found this on the Yellowstone River after high water, it had washed onto an island on the river and gotten caught in an old tree that was also beached on the island. It is 22" from tip to tip and heavier than I would have expected as if it has begun mineralization. The base of the horn cones are 3 1/8" at their largest dimension. Could this be a Bison Antiquus? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
  17. Fossil ID: Bison Horn?

    Hi TFF, thanks for having me. I frequently find fossils all over the Las Vegas area, but usually things that came from the sea: shells, small organisms, coral. On one of my last outings, I found this horn. I find many Rugosa, coral horns, in the exposed limestone on the peaks around Mt. Charleston area. This example looks very different to me. It is about 8 inches, 20cm long, and is very heavy, like stone and rock. It appears to me that the outer shell "horn" is partially intact, though long turned to rock. The core is a different texture and color as well. It was found on an exposed limestone ridge a mile or two south of Charleston Peak, ~11,000 ft elevation, partially buried in scree. My first thought was it was some sort of tusk from a sea animal, due to other sea fossils in the area. The bison examples I compared it to on the web could be a match to my untrained eye, but none of them to be as "petrified" or stone-like as this one. I thought I'd share, as it seems like a rare find for the area.
  18. 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!
  19. Late Pleistocene Iowa #4

    This was another find close to the others. I have seen similar bones like this one, that are listed as stag moose? I haven’t been doing this long enough to know which animal...
  20. Late Pleistocene, Iowa tooth

    Found this guy today. A tooth but from what?my first guess is bison? Second, perhaps a stag moose or other large herbivore. I did find this near some of the bison finds.
  21. Teeth and mandibles-Bos or Bison?

    Found a tooth walking along the gravel/sandbars of a creek in central Iowa (Des Moines lobe) and came across the tooth on the right. I was surprised to find both these jaws about 1,000 ft apart and a mile downstream. I assumed they were the source, but looks like the loose tooth may be an upper (it's larger) and both these jaws seem to be full. The teeth don't seem to match up symmetrically either, making me think it might be different individuals. Modern and ancient bison remains are pretty commonly found here (the former being extirpated ~100 years ago), but I figure cows are just common enough to confound things. They seem to have the stylids I read about, but I can't tell if they are strong/prominent enough to be Bison. Any help would be appreciated!
  22. Possible ancient bison bones

    These bones were found just above Cretaceous gravel layer at a local DFW creek today. One the leg bones measures almost 17 to 18 inches in length. Leg bone width on this one is around 3 to 4 inches. I also found vertebra bone of bison as well. They look juvenile. These are probably either adult steppe bison bones or juvenile bones. Earlier this month, at a another creek, I also found steppe bison dorsal vertebra with rib bones within similar layer. Your opinion helps.
  23. Horse or Bovine Tooth? Approximate Age?

    I found this tooth last week in the Illinois River in NW Arkansas. I’m guessing it’s not terribly old, but I’d like some help narrowing down if at all possible. I think it’s a horse, but not positive. It looks as as if it has been buried in the mud at some point due to the dirt being up in the root. Thank you for any help given.
  24. Bison or horse scapula

    Can anyone here differentiate a scapula from horse or bison? I’ve seen countless images on line, but I’m still stumped by what I have here.
  25. vertebra

    I’ve always wondered what kind of critter this vertebra was from. I’m assuming bison. I thought it was interesting because of what look like cut marks on the top of the spine. Do you think this is evidence of butchering? Thanks for any input
