  1. Tooth fragment

    f Found out of a creek in North Central Iowa, top half was broken but is porous. what could this have belonged to?
  2. The largest carnivorous land mammal ever with a jaw similar in size to that of a rhino was found in Kenya and described by researchers from the University of Ohio. https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2019-04/ou-ffi041119.php
  3. fossil jaw fragment

    I was told this is a bobcat. It is said to be found in Florida. I didn't think it looked for sure like one but I don't have any mammal fossils yet so I wanted it anyway. I can't tell what it is though. Some of the tooth tips are chipped and the shape looks a bit strange. The rule is in centimeters (I accidentally wrote millimeters at first)
  4. Thoughts on this skull. Contacted the seller and they stated they didnt know the locality where it was found. Is it Authentic fossil, possible species? Thanks guys
  5. More skull fragments found in a shoe box

    Back again guys! I wanted to thank you all again for your help in ID'ing the Oreodont skull that my Grandmother gave me when I was a child. Thanks to everyone's help I was able to secure the two halves together and will hopefully be able to get it mounted, but honestly its great as it is. You guys are freakin' awesome. And on to more good news! I found another shoe box that we were literally going to throw in the dumpster, opened it up to find (you guessed it, especially if you read the title) more skull/jaw parts! One looks maybe like a carnivore/omnivore? And the other maybe a lower jaw bone of a herbivore? No clue, so I thought I'd ask you experts! The first looks like she had more of the top of the skull from residue from resin or glue, but I didn't find anything that would attach to it. Its about three and a half inches long and about the same in width judging by whats left of the orbitals area.
  6. 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!
  7. Just got back from the Orlando Fossil Fair 2018, I bought some nice fossils but many were not identified and I want to confirm ID's for ones that were. There's a lot of fossils so I'll label each one with information and my own opinon on them. All the fossils shown are allegedly carnivores and found in the Suwannee River in Florida (excluding two of them). The furthest on the left will be #1, and the furthest on the right will be #4. I'm not convinced that 1 is a carnivore but besides that I don't have any hypothesis on what the others could be. The left one in this picture is 5, the one on the right is 6. Five reminds me of a bear, and I don't have any idea what 6 is or if it's even a carnivore. The tooth will be 7 the jaw will be 8, both are allegedly dire wolves (they're not associated) from 'Northern Florida', I don't have an exact locality unfortunately. I suspect these both belong to dire wolves. The furthest left will be 9, and the furthest right is 11. I suspect 9 and 10 to be racoon teeth, but I'm not sure if racoons are found in the Suwannee river. At first I thought 11 was a canid, but after looking at it for awhile it looks more like a feline. This last specimen will be 12, right now I'm stuck between a primitive canid (possibly leptocyon) a feline, or some sort of fox. This specimen was also found in the Suwannee, like the rest except the dire wolves. If you need more pictures I can take some and post them within the hour. Thanks in advance!
  8. Is this a Nanotyrannus tooth?

    I got this from a guy who found it at Montana the Hell Creek area. I was wondering if it was a Nanotyrannus Tooth or a different carnivore?
  9. Carnivorous theropod claw

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is definitely not the end of a digit from a large carnivorous theropod. The only potentials from the Morrison formation where it was found, would be different species of ceratasaurs, allosaurs, and torvosaurus, right? and they, along with most carnivorous theropods have claws at the end of every digit, including the little foot&heel stubbies, don't they? wouldnt this have to be from something without claws? Or at least no claw on this?
  10. Anyone know what this jaw is from? Apparently collected back in the 90's in Tampa Bay Florida, I'm not sure on the geography of the area, but it also says allegedly it's from the pleistocene. The description of it is specific enough to say it was collected in a river deposit, but i'm not sure which. I agree that it's a carnivorous mammal, but beyond that I have no idea, any clue what it is?
  11. I found this lying partially buried in a seasonal creek bank. In northern Nevada. I continue to search as many areas of the internet for info and have come up with zero. (I originally thought it a large mountain lion...but I no longer think this is what it is. ) The size is approx. 12" x 13". The eye orbits were almost large enough for my 17yr old daughter to put her fist into. There were no teeth attached to the remaining skull. It appears to have had it's face smashed in ......info appreciated.
  12. Florida small carnivore tooth for ID

    My daughter found this little tooth and we would love an ID if possible. It’s about 5/8 of an inch across the crown and is missing one root. Thanks in advance @Harry Pristis
  13. Florida carnivore tooth ID

    Hi, I was hoping someone can help me ID these teeth. They are from the Tampa Bay area. From left to right, the first two look like molars, the third is a premolar, and the fourth looks like some kind of carnassial tooth. Are they feline, canine, mustelid, or something else? Thank you in advance.

  15. Mammalian Tooth ID for misc. find

    I found this specimen in VA, USA. Any help identifying is greatly appreciated. Thank you, all.
  16. unknown carnivore

    Here is a fossil carnivore (I assume) that I purchased with no information at an online auction. I know little about fossils but the double pair of incisors seems odd to me. Or maybe they are not incisors. I assumed this is a mammal but maybe not? Hopeful for an identification and any information; thanks. I can post more detailed photos if necessaary.
  17. Small Mammal Molar

    Cute little molar I found on my shovel while shark tooth huntin'. No idea if it can be classified into species but seems to be from a small terrestrial carnivore/omnivore. Thanks!
  18. Hell Creek Coprolites

    Hi all, I just got back from a fantastic dig near Marmarth, ND. I was in coprolite heaven! I am wondering if anyone has any clues about the round inclusion in the first photo. It is phosphatic. I thought it was particularly interesting because I rarely see inclusions in this type of coprolite. I am also including photos of some of the more interesting coprolites I found along with a really cool ichnofossil found by another member of our group. What is interesting about this one is that it is furrowed on both the rounded and concave ends.
  19. Possibly tapir tooth?

    We found this tooth diving off Venice - the captain thought it might be from a carnivore like a direwolf. I thought perhaps it is a tapir tooth - the top looks right but the root is throwing me off. Thoughts?
  20. I found this in a creek bottom in central Ohio after a flood that caused extensive erosion. I'm thinking it might be a fox or coyote, but really don't know. I was hoping someone with more expertise in this area could assist me in identifying it. Thanks, Mark
  21. I work in a small museum and occasionally have people stop by to ask what kind of fossil they've found. About half the time I know or can find out with a little research- the other half I am clueless. So, I've decided to start leaning on people who are vastly smarter than I on this topic (i.e. you people). A guy came in with these photos and said he came across this lower jaw while hiking in an area known for middle to late Eocene fossils in SW Wyoming. He estimated it was maybe 7 inches in length and was just a couple of feet above some fossil turtle scutes. I don't really know much about the area or much about vertebrate fossils. I am guessing it is some sort of Creodonta or Carnivora, but I am way out of my element (I just learned what Creodonta are). Some known Creodonta from the area (1992): Sinopa, Limnocyon, Thinocyon, Partiofelis Some known Carnivora from the area (1992): Miacis, Viverravus, Vulpavus Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  22. Are there any theropod dinosaur fossils that can be found in Ontario, Canda that is in a public collecting site that is Legal? examples of theropod dinosaurs: tyrannosaurids, dromaeosaurids, etc.
  23. The location where this was found contains both aquatic and terrestrial animals from floodplain habitat. In this coprolite, a small tooth plate impression with residual fragments can be seen on the surface. Since a similar tooth plate was not found within the coprolite itself, it is unclear whether this is an undigested prey remnant or if it was embedded upon deposition. An unidentified bone and numerous fish scale inclusions were revealed using X-ray computed tomography. This specimen was scanned in April 2016 by the University of Minnesota X-ray Computed Tomography Lab using a X5000 high resolution microCT system with a twin head 225 kV x-ray source and a Dexela area detector (3073 x 3889 pixels).
  24. Possible carnivore phalanx?

    Suspect phalanax of a larger mammal possibly carnivore? Thanks justin
  25. Peruvian Expedition

    Hello, I am interested in going to Peru to look at carnivourous fossils in the Talara tar pits and to look at shark and whale fossils in the Ica region. However, I am currently an American citizen. How can I go to Peru and do these things? Thank you.
