  1. Bison tooth or cow tooth?

    I got a tooth that I found in a river or creek in central Iowa. I'm not sure exactly where I found it, just that I found it in the water. I was wondering if it is a bison tooth, but I can't tell the difference between bison and cow teeth. I found a partial bison skull with the horns in a creek I go to, so it wouldn't surprise me if it is a bison. I included a picture of the front, back, and grinding surface. Thanks for any help.
  2. Bison or Cow Bones?

    Could anyone help me identify the type of bones we found today in the Post Oak Creek? These two bones weren't found together. Thank you for any help.
  3. 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.
  4. Bison skull

    Found in the Arkansas river west of Tulsa. Modern or older?
  5. Hey everyone! I'm at an antique fair and found what appears to be a fossil bison skull. Card says it's from about 40,000 years ago. What do you guys think as far as it being Real?
  6. Bison tooth ?

    Hi to all. Today i found this tooth in the stream in the middle of the Forest. Last time when i was there,i found one huge oyster.So the question is:Is this a Bison tooth or not? The one on the right side i found on the road near the forest,it's also heavy as this one from the stream. If someone can help, it would be much appreciated
  7. Cow jaw?

    Hi guys, I think this one might be a cow but either way it's quite old based on where we found it. Just curious if anyone could give more insight, as we found some other small pieces of assorted bones / ball joints in this creek bed while metal detecting / fossil hunting. If you need more pictures, let me know. As always, I appreciate the knowledge here. PS: There are two separate jaws (obvious by # of teeth). The lighter colored one appears to be a little younger / less weathered. The darker one is basically wood composite at this point.
  8. ice aged tooth?

    Today I wanted to participate in the fossil of the month, but I read that I must have found the fossil itself - too bad - so I present it to you here: my coworker made with his daughter during the summer holidays on the Baltic coast in southern Denmark and found this wonderful tooth - 4,5 * 3,0 * 1,20 cm. Unfortunately, I do not know what it is, I suspect that it is a glacial Bison tooth - possibly from another herbivore. Knowing that I treasure and collect fossils, he left the piece to me. I would be very happy about a more precise ID. I appreciate your comments - Thank you, Christain
  9. Iowa Mandible (Deer?)

    Hello! I found this mandible yesterday in a creek in Linn County, IA. It reminds me of a modern whitetail deer, but I'm not sure. One thing that stands out to me is that the middle tooth has three labial lobes. I have a modern whitetail doe adult to compare it too (see last picture), but only the end tooth has three labial lobes. Does that mean this isn't a whitetail deer or is that normal genetic variation? Total length of mandible (broken): 83 mm Thickness of mandible: 19 mm Width of tallest tooth: 20 mm Thickness of tallest tooth: 9.4 mm Thanks! @Harry Pristis
  10. Bison or Cow tooth?

    I am with a construction crew building a bridge in North Dakota. I found this tooth while excavating one of the proposed piers in a sand layer approximately 20 ft down from the original ground. The sand layer also has 3 inch clams around it as well. The river channel was man made in this area where the tooth was found back in the 70’s and the original river channel is about 1500 ft away. However this area we are excavating appears to be original ground. The tooth is fairly large and was found next to a vertebrae as well. I am thinking this could either be bovine or bison. Any ideas?
  11. Teeth ID.

    Zdravo to all! Again with some archeological finds! Found these two teeth with so many pottery and other bones side by side.I'm thinking that these two are maybe from a Fox (canine) and this bigger one may be from a Bos...If u can give me some tips about this it would be nice as always. P.s. U can clearly see that this canine has a hole in it so it was probably for the necklace. Thanks
  12. Fossil or not?

    Hi! I'm confused a bit? Is this fossil or not? It's little heavy than normal tooth,btw I try the burning test on some edges and it burns but doesn't smell like a burning bone and on some it doesn't burn at all..As u see the part underneath looks mineralized and it doesn't burn.If u can help some how,maybe some other test?
  13. Bison or Camel molar?

    Found this years ago in Myrtle beach South Carolina, I thought it was a bison molar but I've seen some fossilized camel teeth recently that looked possibly closer to my tooth, any ideas are welcome!
  14. Need help IDing tooth found in NE Iowa!

    I found this tooth in a dry creek bed in NE Iowa. The area I found it in is unique due to the fact that even though it is surrounded by farmland, the sheer rock bluffs and rock overhangs cut by the little creek over the centuries made this area unsuitable for farming. Northeast Iowa was apparently missed by many of the ice advances during the Ice Age so the area as a whole has a much older surface geology than found anywhere else in the state. The tooth is between 1 1/16” and 1 3/16” in all measurements. It looks too old to be from a cow though I’m sure they have been in the area since first settled. The closest thing I’ve found myself online is a tooth from a prehistoric camel. Any help IDing it would be much appreciated!
  15. Bone Identification

    I found these bones in Wilbur Oregon , while blackberry picking . i found bones sticking out of the ground. two bone sites about ten ft apart , they look like bison but i am really confused about the skull. can anyone identify these ? i would like to sell them. i have many bones from the site.
  16. This was found in the northern end of the Sacramento Valley. I’m curious if it’s bison or cow. This area would be on the border of the bison range, but the area was used frequently by the Native Americans. It could be a possibility that it was imported in ancient times.
  17. Is this a bison vertebra?

    This is from China. Any thoughts on the species? It looks like bison to me, but I'm no expert. Could be equine. Heck, could be a wooly rhino for all I know. Any thoughts from those who know more than I? thanks, Matt
  18. Tooth identification

    I found this tooth on a sandbar on the Missouri River near St. Louis, MO. I did some research to identify and the information I find on the stylid isn't clear to me. Can anyone clearly identify what animal the tooth is from?
  19. Another vertebra ID: is it bison?

    This is from China. Any thoughts on the species? It looks like bison to me, but I'm no expert. Could be equine. Heck, could be a wooly rhino for all I know. Any thoughts from those who know more than I?
  20. Found these teeth in a Florida creek

    Found these teeth/jaw bone in a Florida creek. I researched it to be of Bison teeth which would make sense but found some similarities of Camel which would be interesting to find in Florida. I was wondering about what years it may be from?
  21. Jaw section in question

    Good evening, I've found this section a year ago and since then kept it in our garden. I took a second look at it tonight and thought it might be my first camel jaw piece. I found this along a creek in Travis county, thanks
  22. Bison Vertabra?

    Hey all, I found this in a creek in southeast Nebraska today while looking for geodes and although I wasn’t sure at first I’m fairly certain it is at least partially fossilized. (Waiting for it to dry out completely for a more definitive answer on that front). I was pretty sure it was bovid, but am having trouble matching it to a specific vertabra of either modern cow or bison. Since I believe it to be fossilized I thought maybe I should explore other possibilities, but haven’t had any luck. Any input would be appreciated.
  23. Can't figure this one out.

    Can't seem to figure this one out. Large vertebrae found in Oklahoma. Any help on identifying these?
  24. As well is there any documentation on the possible terminal dates of these species?
  25. Hello everyone! I need some help identifying these bones. I've narrowed them down to being antiquus or possibly bison bison. Even had a specialist describe them to possibly be Camelops...These were located in Southwestern Oklahoma.
