  1. Fossil? Deer jaw?

    Hey all, here’s another deer jaw that I’m wondering if it’s a fossil or modern, I know it’s difficult to know if it’s modern or a fossil cause deer are still around but I’d really appreciate if you could give some insight! @Harry Pristis @Fossildude19 @digit @Bone Daddy @ShellseekerTIA
  2. Big brook finds again!

    Hello again. Ive been to big brook a couple times and have some more interesting pieces! So here we have two raptor teeth, a dwarf mammoth tusk and a dire wolf tooth...just kidding but hoping there as unique as im saying. The "theropod" teeth may just be worn shark teeth or enchodus. And the other two modern? So 4 things in total though. Thanks anyone.
  3. Deer rib or what?

    Hello all is this a modern deer rib and if not what do you think it is?
  4. Big Brook #8

    saturday was my 8th trip to Big Brook and came away with shark teeth, a (modern) deer jawbone, a Jergens Lotion glass bottle (1970s?) and a really cool iridescent rock the likes of which i've never seen there before. And possibly a lobster fossil.
  5. Mammal teeth

    From the album North Sulfur River

    What's neat about NSR is that you can find Pleistocene-aged remains right next to the bones of marine reptiles from the Late Cretaceous. The river flushes everything out of the walls and mixes it all together.
  6. Probably not a fossil

    Hi there can anyone identify the species/age. guessing old due to the condition of teeth. also found in The Cotswolds. ignore back ground clutter of the photos.
  7. Indiana Mammal Tooth

    I found this tooth in my backyard creek along with several deer teeth and fossil bone fragments. This tooth was the odd one out and I just think it's not a deer.
  8. Peace River visit

    Back to the River for another adventure. Luckily I am just an hour away on a nice straight route with little traffic. As I started out yesterday there was a really bad fog layer causing visibility to be extremely limited. I had the fog lights and low beams on in the jeep and kept the speed down to 10 mph below the speed limit. I have been hit by deer and have seen several on the trip in the past. Didn't want to risk a wild life encounter enroute to the river. After getting about half way there the fog lifted and I was back to normal visibility until I got to Rte 17 when I drove into another fog bank. I was happy to see it lifted on arrival at the river at about 8 am. Launched the kayak and headed to my latest hunting spot with the intent to make this a quality over quantity day. I promised myself I would leave all small and/or partial shark teeth to the river gods and only take home real "keepers". With this in mind I figured I would have a much lighter bag of goodies for the ride home. As I got into the river and started digging every so often I caught the odor of sweet soap or almost a perfume. This was so pronounced a few times I looked around to see if someone was approaching and reeking of perfume. I also saw my gator buddy up on his sandy spot soon after my arrival which was unusual. I kept on digging and the first keeper I pulled up was a pond turtle Nuccal Scute. It was a nice find and a little spooky as I had just been looking at one on a prior posting by @Shellseeker the night before. I was pulling up lots of small and partial shark teeth and tossing them when I found a couple of nice Hemis and partial megs. About an hour in a young family came by in a canoe and after exchanging greetings and talking about the water depth the dad said it was weird the water was so cloudy. He then asked if I thought the phosphate mine had made a release into the river. A bell went off about the smell - could this have been some kind of cleanser added to a release from the phosphate mine? Could that also be why my friendly gator was out of the water early in the morning? Do any of our Florida members know of this odor being associated with a release into the river by the phosphate mine group? Anyway, the day continued with the river gods being kind and helping out with my quality over quantity desire. The rest of the day turned up more nice Hemis, some deer teeth, a worn glyptodont scute, half a Tapir tooth crown, puffer fish mouth plate, and three partial verts. Also got a partial gator tooth and one item that may be a tooth or a claw. I'll have to research that last one and post further pics if I need help with an ID. The largest vert, I stepped on and was able to just reach down and lift it out. Some photos of the best of the day below: This is the one I am not sure about as tooth or possibly claw:
  9. Fossilized antler

    Good evening, I found this about 9 ft below surface of an eroded wall alongside a creek in Austin, Texas. The piece appeared to be fairly long but it kept crumbling. Was hoping to get an idea of what it could possibly be. Thanks
  10. Peace River Adventure

    It was a good day on the Peace River yesterday. Started out a bit cool at 60 degrees but got up into the high 70's by the afternoon. I was pretty much prospecting as I moved farther north up river from the area I had been hunting for the last few months. This required a portage of my equipment and inflatable kayak over a set of rapids. It went well and I was back on my way in under 10 minutes. I came upon an area that showed signs of previous hunting and decided to check it out. I started probing and found a large gravel bed. So the digging began. I got numerous small shark teeth of all varieties in just about every pile I moved thru the sifter. First nice find was a horse molar followed by a partial deer antler. Working the area all day added a nice variety of finds. Turtle shell, mammal ear bone, unk vert, eagle ray tooth frags, whale tooth, shark teeth - hemi, bull, lemon, tiger, partial megs and more (over 300 shark teeth/partials). Nicest finds in my opinion are what I believe to be a bison metacarpal and a tooth that seems to be either a whale tooth or some kind of feline incisor. I found the bison metacarpal when going back to the kayak for a break. The water was so shallow and clear I spotted the bone sitting on the river bottom as I neared the boat! I will post additional photos of the bison metacarpal and possible whale tooth or feline incisor in the ID section for help with the ID. I got so involved with my discoveries the time slipped away and I started back about an hour later than usual. With the portage again needed to get back I was running late and this prompted a phone call from my wife checking to make sure I hadn't flipped the kayak or gotten swallowed by one of the local gators! Thankfully, cell reception is pretty good on this section of the river! If I hadn't answered I don't how long she would have waited to report me missing! Can't wait to get back out there!
  11. I live in the Northeast of the USA. I found this bone out in the forest yesterday and I’m having trouble identifying it due to its size. As shown in the photos, the bone looks very scratched up, probably chewed on, and both joints on each end have been snapped off. The bone was cracked down the middle, then fell off my counter which split it in half. I don’t have a metric ruler, but 12 inches is about 30 centimeters. If it had the joints I think it would be closer to 15 inches, or 38 centimeters. I was thinking it was a white tail deer tibia or possibly a femur (I was leaning more towards tibia due to the curvature) but everything I saw said that deer tibias and femurs aren’t more than 10-11 inches even with the joints. I know it’s pretty broken up, but guesses from anyone?? Thanks! (Can’t upload all the photos due to file size so I will comment with more)
  12. Is it a giant deer tooth?

    Hello guys I just received this tooth, I believe it comes from China, the person who sold this tooth told me that it is a giant deer tooth, is it correct? please help meeee. Unfortunately I don't have much information about it.
  13. Hey everyone! On Wednesday, as I finally had some time, I decided to take Sara out to my favorite hunting spot: the Zandmotor (Netherlands). I definitely did not regret that decision! If you've never heard of the Zandmotor before, it's an artificial beach extension just south of The Hague, and the sand that was used was dredged from the North Sea and is full of Ice Age megafaunal mammal bones and tons of Eemian shells. If you want to see some more of my finds and hunts there, just look up "Zandmotor" in the TFF search bar and you should find a bunch of stuff When we got there it was raining, which annoyed me a little bit because the forecast said it wouldn't... The rain also makes the sand stick to the fossils which can become annoying when looking for small fossils or trying to recognize the thing you just picked up. But, having just spent an hour in the bus to get here, I didn't want to turn back immediately. Luckily the rain stopped within half an hour, and I wasn't even on the Zandmotor yet (I have to walk about an hour from the bus stop to the Zandmotor itself) and after that the weather alternated between cloudy and sunny which was nice. While I usually always take a pass by the shell banks, today I decided to only walk along the shoreline to increase the chances of finding good mammal stuff. In fact, there had been a strong eastern wind on Tuesday which helped uncover a lot of the bones and make them wash ashore. This did not go unnoticed, there were a lot indeed! Here is my first big find of the day, a great complete horse astralagus!
  14. I found this bone in Florida's Peace River in a gravel bed that contained Pleistocene and Holocene land vertebrates. I am unsure about this bone. Is it a small deer, or is it a turkey bone? Or, am I entirely wrong and it's an alligator? Thanks in advance! MikeG
  15. Bones Central Texas

    I found a deer skull in an area of Central Texas where Native Americans lived for over 12,000 years. The skull was found half way up a tree. Near by were other weathered bones, mainly of deer. Additonally I found an unusal orbital socket, I guess that is the term. The eye socket is the same height as that of the deer, but much more elongated and it looks like the nose would have been very near the eyes, like a cat. I am posting a picture of the bones in hopes that someone has knowledge about both living and extinct Texas wildlife. I can post different angles, if needed. Thanks for looking and any help you can provide!
  16. From the album Vertebrates

    Juvenile Deer Jaw - Pleistocene the bank of the LENA river near of the city Yakutsk (Yakutia, North Siberia), Russia.
  17. I’m excited about this find, not only is it a fossil, form what not totally sure, but I also believe it is a tool! You can see the marks from where it has been carefully cracked. On the flat side of the bone, you can see where it has been flattened as well. If not a tool then certainly harvested bone marrow. This was found in an area close to other Clovis finds.
  18. Mammal teeth GMR

    Hi all! I'm hoping for some insight. I found two mammal teeth at GMR today and I am not 100% sure what they are. I was thinking peccary or deer. Assistance is appreciated.
  19. North American fossils id

    Hi guys! Recently i got these several teeth from one guy from the US.They were found somewhere in Florida but he doesn't know the exact names of the species which i'm looking right now. If someone could help it would be much appreciated. P.s. They are from pleistocene. Thanks, Darko
  20. I'm wondering if anyone could help me ID thus fossil bone from Rehoboth Beach, DE. I think it's land mammal, but not sure of what species. It's in pretty good condition (I think) so hopefully being able to ID this will be easy. I hope you guys can help me out! Thank you! (Sorry I can only upload one picture it won't let me upload multiple) Uu

  24. Mammal vertebra from the ZM

    Hi all, I found this fossil vertebra near the Zandmotor (Netherlands) last weekend. It's from the last Ice Age, late Pleistocene (around 40'000 years old). There is the possibility that it is middle Pleistocene (around 600'000 years old), but that possibility is very slim. So it's (most likely) a fossil vertebra from one of the typical megafaunal Ice Age critters that roamed Europe alongside the mammoths, woolly rhino's, etc. For now, I am thinking it could be from some deer species, but I am really not sure. What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance, Max
  25. Iowa Mandible (Deer?)

    Hello! I found this mandible yesterday in a creek in Linn County, IA. It reminds me of a modern whitetail deer, but I'm not sure. One thing that stands out to me is that the middle tooth has three labial lobes. I have a modern whitetail doe adult to compare it too (see last picture), but only the end tooth has three labial lobes. Does that mean this isn't a whitetail deer or is that normal genetic variation? Total length of mandible (broken): 83 mm Thickness of mandible: 19 mm Width of tallest tooth: 20 mm Thickness of tallest tooth: 9.4 mm Thanks! @Harry Pristis
