  1. Unidentified Jaw, Mammal?

    Hello everyone. Ive got a tough one for you guys. So I have a fossil jaw with a single canine tooth that I’ve had in my collection for a couple years. It was a gift from my boyfriend, so no locality. I tried to have it identified on the fossil forum Facebook group when I first got it, but no one knew what it was for sure. I had a paleontologist post a response and this is what he had to say: ”Hi Marielle Krenzelak, I'm a palaeontologist but I'm not entirely sure what you have there. I'm not concerned with the material that others don't think is bone. It looks to me like the canine tooth (the only tooth you have) is broken. I think the jaw is mammalian based on its overall morphology. I don't think that it is a horse, based on the shape of the symphysis (area where the left and right jaws would have connected) and its position relative to the canine. It is interesting that it has a long post-canine diastema (the smooth area after the canine and before the alveoli, or holes, where the next teeth would have gone). I also think the other suggestions (boar and goat) are also incorrect, again based on the length of the diastema and the shape of the symphysis. Finally, the age constraint someone gave you of less than 20,000 years is not supportable. I've worked on mammals back to ~ 55,000,000 years that have similar preservation. Barring that, I'm just not sure what it is you have there.” So I thought I’d try again on this forum to see if anyone has any idea what it might be? I know we have many experts and actual paleontologists on here. If anyone could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. Here is a link to the post about it on Facebook in case anyone is in the fossil forum Facebook group and wants to take a look at it: https://www.facebook.com/groups/135008766530423/permalink/1768488489849101?sfns=mo Thank you for any thoughts or insights you have to share!
  2. Small Canine

    One of the guys hunting with me today found this canine and asked me to identify. I was surprised how laterally thin the tooth is. I am pretty sure we will identify. Please state the characteristic that makes your ID correct. i.e what differentiates from similar sized mammal canines? The standard experts: @Harry Pristis @PrehistoricFlorida. EDITED, sorry. The top edge close to the tip (Photo #3) is worn presumably by grinding against the opposing canine. All comments & suggestions appreciated. Jack
  3. A visit to a cool SW Florida location Found a bunch of small teeth, a really nice shark vert, a fat Meg, a good size Mako, and maybe a Beardog canine? Can anyone confirm that one?! Anyone know? Good day hunting!
  4. Basilosaur lower frontal jaw section

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Basilosaur(us?) frontal lower jaw seyction, from Boujdour, in Morocco. Hopefully the species can be distinguished with some more info
  5. Basilosaur frontal lower jaw section

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Almost the entire frontal canine portion of the lower jaw of a Basilosaur. As you can see, the area where the absent front canines were, at the tip of the piece is visible, as well as where the missing last canines were situated. Although it was labeled as a Basilosaurus, I’m a little hesitant to consider that the case until I can personally corroborate the information. Apparently from Boujdour, I’m just having trouble finding information about which whales are, or are not found there, so until then I’ll leave it more open with just Basilosaur.
  6. Hey guys. So my friend recently gave me this awesome fossil canine tooth from China. Unfortunately the tooth has been very badly glued back in 2 different places after it was broken. I would like if possible to know how to remove glue, superglue in this case so I can reglue it properly. I would not like to risk the tooth being irreversibly damaged... Do you guys know how and if I could do that? Thanks for any imput. Kind regards, Thomas
  7. Found in South of France

    Found two of these similar shaped stones. They both have the resemblance a tooth. Curious if anyone has any insight. They were found in Charente, France. They seem to be possible internal molds of crustacean. I would greatly appreciate if anyone has any information on this. Thank you!
  8. 2 Canines

    Continuing a streak of good luck. Recently, I was digging in a semi-productive location and a small canine showed up. I recall that it was the last fossil I noted while searching the sieve. An interesting find. Not a clue of what it might be. At 40.5 mm, little too large for small mammals like raccoon. I did see the curious bump at the base of the root. Late in the day from the same spot, a 54 mm canine missing half of its tip. Too small for Jaguar. I have a 2.9 inch canine that looks a lot like this one. All comments, suggestions, identifications appreciated.

  10. ID needed

    Hey guys. Saw this and I have absolutely no idea of what it could be. No location either... Two canines I believe? Serrated?! Please help... Thanks so much.

  16. Rockshelter tooth

    Good afternoon, I found this tooth today digging in a rockshelter near lake Travis. The tooth was found amongst other deer and bison bones about a foot deep. I've read Texas rockshelters in this area house animal remains from roughly 25,000 years ago.
  17. Hi there, Posting here after hours and hours of research and not being able to find any answers. In around 1974, my mother was walking up a small river on or near the border between southern Alberta and southern BC, Canada, and she stumbled across what looked like a smooth, polished rock. She picked it up, and realized it was a rather large canine tooth from an animal. She thought it was a bear tooth, which I don't agree with - doesn't seem to be the right shape. She brought it to a jeweller and had it capped with silver and made into a pendant. The jeweller said it was the hardest thing he'd ever drilled into and broke several bits trying... The curvature and strange twist of the tooth have thrown me off in my search, but I have a suspicion that its potentially from a large Mountain Lion, or possibly a large Wolf. Any help here would be greatly appreciated! Attached are photos. Thank you!
  18. Fossil possibly from Aurora NC

  19. 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
  20. What do you guys think? Don't mind the line across the top, the piece unfortunately snapped in half and was repaired.
  21. Feb 21st Peace River hunting

    I have a minor medical procedure tomorrow morning. Nothing serious but it will keep me out of the Peace River for a week or so....So today I went hunting for the last opportunity before a layoff. Did I tell you that I am lucky? I have 4-5 hunting friends and when asked, they all claim that I must be one of the luckiest fossil hunters in the world.. You can judge. My friend Dave had found a Meg in a new location for him and suggested we go back to the same location today. When I got to this "new" location, I realize that I had dug this same spot extensively back in 2013-2014. However, the depth of the river in down from last moth and Dave indicated that he had found deep gravel with lots of hemis, tigers, duskys, lemons and a few Megs.. Sounds interesting , We really had a workout expanding the hole down and out. I was in waist deep water to start and shoulder deep water at the end of the day. Lots of small teeth, plus , horse and chunks of Mastodon, Mammoth, and ivory...Dave was finding similar fossils plus a number of nice small Megs. Nothing unique Until. Dave thought this might be tusk because of the obvious layering. I am not positive, but If it is not tusk, there are few sources of 4-6 inch canines in the Peace River watershed. Let's see what Bobby think for this find. @Boesse I could not be more pleased. ANY identification yields a super rare fossil, even one that is broken in half. As we paddled back to the bridge, Dave indicated (half_humorously I hope) that he may not be taking me to his new locations in the future.
  22. Skull?

    Hey guys! I was wondering if anyone can tell me what this might be. Im pretty sure it is fossilized. I was thinking it was a skull, specifically that of a mammal but I am not sure which. Canine? Thank you for any help!
