  1. ID please on this mammal tooth

    Hi all I have been looking at old boxes of fossils to find some goodies for my Secret Santa and I found this tooth. Label says, found 1988 , near Stratford upon Avon. from the period of the Devensian Glaciation. I think it is a bos tooth but an ID from the forum would be really great. Thanks for your help. have a nice weekend. Bobby
  2. Bison or cow tooth?

    Hi everyone, does anyone know if this tooth is from bison or cow? Thanks
  3. Hello! My message today is about the definition of a "find" accidentally seen in the Internet. They write about the teeth of the alleged Coryphodon originally from China. But isn't it a horse or bovine? Although, judging by the photo, there may be a fossil? Thank you for your opinions!
  4. found this tooth in the London Thames River. from what i have read it could be an old bison tooth and not a cow tooth. im hoping its a bison tooth. it surely feels like stone its heavy. but i am no expert. hoping somebody could tell me if it’s fossilised and which animal it comes from. some people say the isolated stylid on one side makes it look like a bison. somebody else said the great size of it could mean bison. thank you so much for your help.
  5. Mammal tooth?

    Hello everyone! New member, just joined today. Great to be here! I live in Huntingtown, Maryland in Calvert County. Lots of Meg teeth and Miocene era fossils. Was trying to get some help identifying these mammal teeth. I found them on the Patuxent River right up from where I live on an embankment that backs up to a cliff. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Have been told Camel but not sure.
  6. Tooth ID required

    Founs around 15 years ago in my garden in West midlands, England. We live in a town, not near any countryside. Any info appreciated.
  7. Fossil ID: Bison or Cow?

    Hello. Is this tooth a cow or a bison tooth? Let me know if you need any more pictures. Thanks.
  8. Cow or Taurus tooth?

    Found it walking by seashore. Waves washed it out. Could it be something interesting, or just regular cow tooth? I'm from Lithuania
  9. River find in Arkansas river

    Found this in the river having a hard time figuring out if it's an old cow or Bison jaw
  10. Myrtle Beach bramble shark?

    Over the holiday I examined some fossils found by my wife at Myrtle Beach over the last couple months. Here is one that I first thought was a cow shark tooth. Now I'm wondering if it is really a bramble shark tooth. The root is obviously gone. Could I get some opinions please? If this is a bramble, is it rarer than a cow? I already thought it was a decent find, but is it even more special?
  11. What is this tooth from?

    I work for an ecological restoration company and I work in rivers all the time. I find weird things from time to time, but I am stumped. Please help I know it’s a “petrified tooth” but I don’t know what it is from. Any ideas?
  12. This was found a few inches above a layer of shark teeth. This was also found in Northeast Texas in a River bank.
  13. Teeth and mandibles-Bos or Bison?

    Found a tooth walking along the gravel/sandbars of a creek in central Iowa (Des Moines lobe) and came across the tooth on the right. I was surprised to find both these jaws about 1,000 ft apart and a mile downstream. I assumed they were the source, but looks like the loose tooth may be an upper (it's larger) and both these jaws seem to be full. The teeth don't seem to match up symmetrically either, making me think it might be different individuals. Modern and ancient bison remains are pretty commonly found here (the former being extirpated ~100 years ago), but I figure cows are just common enough to confound things. They seem to have the stylids I read about, but I can't tell if they are strong/prominent enough to be Bison. Any help would be appreciated!
  14. Horse or Bovine Tooth? Approximate Age?

    I found this tooth last week in the Illinois River in NW Arkansas. I’m guessing it’s not terribly old, but I’d like some help narrowing down if at all possible. I think it’s a horse, but not positive. It looks as as if it has been buried in the mud at some point due to the dirt being up in the root. Thank you for any help given.

    heartbreaking to find
  16. ? Mammal tooth

    I live in upstate New York in a small town called Fabius southeast of Syracuse. My son found this tooth in the woods behind our house in a seasonal stream bed. We are not sure if it is bison tooth or cow tooth or even if it is old ie....did not pass the burn test. Thankyou so much for any info.
  17. Bison tooth?

    New to this forum and fossils. Found this on a shoreline of river after river thawed and flooded while looking for rocks for my son to polish. Not completely sure if it is completely fossilized.
  18. I have spent more dollars on my pet bison than I have ever spent on fossil related tools. I’ve purchased: - A poster on bovine skull anatomy. I couldn’t find a decent free one online. - Butvar 76 - Paraloid B72 (auto correct kept wanting to “paranoid” LOL) - Cyanoacrylate (More of it. Ran out during extraction) - A couple books. One is on “consolidants, adhesives and coatings” in conservation. It is somewhat more technical than what I was expecting. Not beyond my comprehension, but definitely a more in-depth study kind of read. Its detailed chemistry of all the materials we hear about and use. Including those listed above. The Cow and Bison book by Finsley And now what every gal with a pet bison needs is: I’m definitely going to need this when I go trying to prep the skull.
  19. Found this large bone in recycling bin. I have no idea what it came from. Approx 14"L x 5.75" diameter at mid bone x 13"at ends. I'd love your feedback. Thx!
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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?
  25. Bovid ID?

    Ok as if the clam wasn’t enough excitement for the day, not that this is exciting I also found what I believe is a very old, but modern cow skeleton, which I believe is most likely fully articulated. I just want to confirm it is cow. I went fossil hunting yesterday, which was almost a complete and total bust for me. Rarely happens, but that was the case fossil wise. However that does not mean I didn’t find some really cool, very, very cool, want so badly kind of stuff, but I couldn’t carry them out because they were too big and heavy. Anyway, it was miserably hot. I believe I found the hardest, most difficult, poison ivy overgrown path I could possibly find into the creek. First attempt was a 25 foot drop straight down into the creek. I scouted a small section of the creek out, found lots of very cool stuff, but only a coupe of oysters and that was it fossil wise. I was hot and wanted to check out another place before dark so I looked for an easier way out. I found one I thought I could manage. Problem was I was in my flip flops. I had no traction. If I’d been in my boots I’d had no problem at that spot. I couldn’t make it so I went further up creek. The creek water was like warm bath water and offered no relief from the heat. I came to a spot in the creek where a pool of water was divided off from the sandbar. I stepped into it and too my surprise the water was cool and sooooo refreshing. I splashed it all over myself to cool down and walked on. I walked maybe 10 feet and saw this on the edge by the creek bank. It seemed to have recently fallen about 4.5 feet from the middle of the creek bank above. There was a large clump of bank to the right that had more bone in it. I have to mention that I was a few hundred yards from a cemetery so it gave me pause. I had to process it a moment and determine that these were not human bones. Wouldn’t that be horrible! The cemetery could be 100 yrs old. The creek changes course over the years and encroaches upon the cemetery and graves start washing out into the creek!! Yikes! I’m sure it must have happened somewhere once upon a time. Didn’t happen here though. Moving on. This was embedded in the bank about 4.5 feet from the portion of the creek I was standing on and about 5 feet down from the top of the bank. No way it could have been redeposited since it seems largely articulated. I’d been seeing concretions in the bank of the creek so initially I thought the ball to the right was a stone. I was taking a pic of the broken bone. Rib maybe? The ball and one above it I think are heads of femur or something. Here is the bank. You can’t really see the other bones in the bank in this pic. They are there though. Bad quality pic, but I removed some of the dirt from the bank to expose the bone. There is more bone to the right and left. Some of the bones that had fallen from bank. A vertebra Anyway, do you think it is cow or could it be bison? That’s about all the pics I have. It’s modern, but I’m curious. I am assuming the cow must have gotten stuck in the mud and died. The cool water in the creek had to be coming from an underground spring. This was maybe 10 feet from there. Maybe it made the soil very soft and contributed the the bovid’s demise. I have come across cow skeletons on numerous occasions that died in a field and are completely disarticulated from wild animals scavenging them. That didn’t happen here. It must have been mud or something.
