  1. Hi Everyone, I found an interesting large bone fragment in the Brazos River, outside of Harris County, Texas. The fragment has a thick sidewall, so I am guessing it is from a large mammal, possibly mammoth. The thing that I can't wrap my head around is the odd pocket-like texture exhibited on one side of the bone. Could these odd pockets help in the identification of this fossil? Also, I have attached a picture of 2 antlers from the Brazos. They both look like they are whitetail deer antlers to me. One is much larger than the other, possibly due to age and nutrition of the animal? Thanks for checking them out.
  2. three toed horse tooth ID

    Just cleaned up this tooth from my hunt the other day on the Brazos. I had thought it was a small equus tooth, there is definitely an isolated protocone. I know some of you like @Shellseeker and @Harry Pristisare pretty good at comparing these teeth to each other. I can look at them all day and they just start looking the same. Any ideas? Also, I've seen some line drawings before on line that compared many of these horses all on one page, but can't locate it any more. The only ones I can find now are not very clear. Does anyone have something like that they'd care to share?
  3. Great variety today. I’ll add more pics tomorrow but just had to get this piece uploaded tonight. I’m almost positive this is capybara. I only hesitate because I have not found any other capybara material on the Brazos River. Needless to say , I’m pretty stoked with this find!!! Will definitely be entering this in FOTM!!!
  4. I found these yesterday on a terrace near the Brazos. Any help with ID is very appreciated!
  5. Vertebra ID?

    Found in southeast Texas, Harris County, Brazos River. Any idea what this might be from?
  6. My husband went to our special place with out me!!! I don’t know any more about the bone in the comments, than this picture, he just text me these pictures and can’t talk right now because he’s driving. I’ll find out later I guess, it’s still cool. Anyone know what lived there that it may belong to??
  7. Help identify

    Hello ,im david and i enjoy fossil hunting,im new at it so could use some help, with identity ...thanks
  8. Nature's tie dye?

    So I found this pretty rock and felt the need to bring it home. Can anyone tell me why it formed like that?
  9. Y’all look!! Another crab concreation!! Yeah what a fun hobby!!!
  10. Found this, not sure tho

    Hi all! Dug around whiskey bridge yesterday and found what resembled a geode. The top part came off so I dug the rest out, any ideas?
  11. Currently in Bryan Tx

    Hey y’all!!!! Currently in Bryan tx looking to hunt the brazos tomorrow! Anyone have tips or hints? I’ve heard the whiskey river is pretty good, I’m focusing on sharks teeth myself.
  12. Ereotherium caudal??

    This is a vertebra that I found on a gravel bar last month on the south Brazos. It is large but has a small neural opening, and I wonder if it is from near the end of the tail. Someone have a clue? It does look like a megatherium caudal that I found in a paper, but that photo is poor.
  13. large mammal bone

    I found this several months ago on the Brazos River, Texas. The articulating surface measures about 7 x 8 inches. I'm thinking it's a chunk of proboscidean pelvis. I also considered scapula, but leaning toward pelvis. Also, any way to differentiate between mammoth and mastodon? Thanks!
  14. rodent jaw?

    Here's another jaw I found on the Brazos River. Hope someone can help me id it. The total piece is 4 inches long and the length of the longest tooth is 3/8inch across the top of the crown.
  15. pleistocene jaw w/ teeth

    Any ideas for what this jaw belongs to? Pleistocene river gravel from the Brazos in SE Texas. The teeth are either very worn, or the crowns have broken off. Thanks!
  16. Brazos River, Texas - unknown fossils

    I don't know what these fossils are. But my observation is. The 3 biggest fossils have a dense soft sponge center (florist type sponge) and glass shells. The first 3 also have a sharp edges. The other 3 show the deterioration/transition process. #4 has lost most of the soft sponge core. #5-6 are solid fossil. They kinda look like some type of digging claws. What are they?
  17. Brazos River?

    I'm canoeing the Brazos river next weekend(weather permitting) starting from the Possum Kingdom dam and headed 20 miles down. I've had luck finding bivalves and gastropods on other parts of the river. This section of the river is new to me. I'll be on the river 3 days. Any tips on what to look for and where to look for it would be appreciated. Thanks guys
  18. Brazos River mystery ID

    I have searched for a comparable but can't land on anything close. I am fairly convinced it is a femur but cannot ID the animal. Usual suspects of Pleistocene era mammals don't seem to match. Any help is appreciated. Found it on the lower Brazos this week.
  19. Bone ID

    I know its not much to go on but I was hoping the ridge line in the center might be a tell tale ID feature? Found along the lower Brazos river.
  20. Tooth and ????

    My coworker found these in the lower Brazos river area. The tooth his horse right? The second find appears to be bone or is it geological? Thanks in advance
  21. Is this ivory?

    I've had this piece from the Brazos River pleistocene gravel for a while and finally got around to taking some pics. I think I see schreger lines, but maybe just growth rings of wood. What do y'all think. Hope the pics are clear enough.
  22. Tooth ID

    Found this tooth in the Brazos River near Waco,Tx.
  23. Camelops?

    I believe this is an Ulna from a North American Camel. Picked it up in the Brazos earlier this month before the river rose 34'. I have added a side by side of a horse Ulna to show the size differential. I have not completely eliminated the possibility that it is really big horse. What are your thoughts? Camel? Big horse? other? Thanks for the input.
  24. Pleistocene disk

    Hello This is another recent find of mine in the lower brazos TX. I first was calling it a shark vertabra but now I am unsure. I see examples of vertabra here showing concentric circles and a Well defined center. Mine is more like bone. Could it be part of a mammoth foot or phalange? I still think it is some kind of back bone though. Thanks for looking.
  25. Large Pleistocene astragalus?

    I have had this bone for a few months. I found it in the lower brazos river in southeast Texas. I find Pleistocene and recent bones. I've looked all over the skeletons of my usual suspects cow, horse, camel but have not found a match. I think it is complete. Today I was looking though one of the excelent galleries here and saw a cave bear astragalus. It was too small but kind of had the shape I was looking for. I found what might be a closer match with the sloth. I'm just matching Google images though. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me if I am hot or cold. I'm not sure how to hold this so sorry if I've shown bad angles. The greatest dimension is 3 3/4" accross Thanks for checking out my find!
