  1. I found this fossil online. The toe claw is 32.5 cm long. Found in Gobi Desert, Mongolia
  2. Carnivore tooth and jaw bone

    My best guess on this will probably be bear-dog since they were fairly common in this area. It doesn’t seem like this tooth would be at the end of the jaw like a normal canine tooth so I’m not sure where it falls into the jawline. This is the first one of these I’ve ever found so I’m kind of excited about it. Found in north central Nebraska. Miocene.
  3. FL carnivore tooth

    Hey, I’m considering getting this tooth, and I was wondering if anyone could I.D it for me, it says it’s a jaguar tooth, but I wanted to check before I tried to get it. It’s ~1 1/4 inches, and has no restoration. TIA! @Harry Pristis @digit @Shellseeker
  4. Carnivore/omnivore canines from Florida

    Hey, I purchased these in two groups as raccoon, river otter, and possum canines, but I wanted to make sure they’re what I got them as. Biggest of them all is 1 3/16 @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Bone Daddy. TIA!
  5. Everyone here on the forum knows @Nimravis is very generous with his...um...poop. I was the lucky recipient of a Mazon Creek (Pit 4) carnivore coprolite with a very intriguing inclusion. Does anyone recognize this once tasty morsel? Bug bit? EDIT: The scale bar in the photos is 1 mm.
  6. Santa Fe carnivore canine

    Hey guys, Here's a partial canine that I got from Cris & Kyle around 2 and a half years ago. It's from the Santa Fe River in Florida, so Pleistocene in age. I've compared it to several canines online, and my best guess right now is spectacled bear (Tremarctos floridanus), but I feel like it could also be a lower canine from a dire wolf (Canis dirus). It doesn't seem cat-like to me. What do you think? I can provide more angles if necessary. Thanks in advance, Max
  7. I'd love people's thoughts on this if anyone knows, but I find it odd that Kem Kem doesnt have much food fossils (other than Rebbachisaurus, which is kinda big to be prey) but has a number of carnivores. It's weird to me becausr most other formations have food fossils in abundance--Iguanodon at IoW, Ceratopsians and Hadrosaurs common in NA. I'm surprised Kem Kem doesnt really have its own common hadrosaur or iguanodon type. Anyone here know/have thoughts on why?
  8. Raccoon, lynx, or canid tooth?

    Can anyone help me ID this tiny tooth found in the Peace River near Arcadia, Florida?
  9. Coprolite verification

    Good morning folks. I purchased this box of coprolites many years ago under the description "Triassic carnivore fossil dinosaur coprolite, New Mexico". Did I do good or did I get taken?
  10. Good morning. Since it's dinosaur Friday I thought I'd share a Spinosaurus vertebra that I prepped. The first photo is the "before".
  11. Tooth ID requested

    Good evening folks. Can anyone tell me what animal this tooth belonged to. I've lost the documentation and all I can remember is it came from China, sorry.
  12. 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?
  13. 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
  14. 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)
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  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. 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!
  19. 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?
  20. 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?
  21. 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?
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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.
