  1. 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)
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. From the album Vertebrates

    Juvenile Deer Jaw - Pleistocene the bank of the LENA river near of the city Yakutsk (Yakutia, North Siberia), Russia.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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

  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. Bos or red deer part of antler

    Hello to all! I was lucky today to find this! It's some type of horn but I'm not sure from which animal is.It is archeological find.I found many Bos taurus primigenius and Cervus elaphus bones so I'm thinking that this may belong to them.If u know better let me know Hvala!
  17. Not a fossil

    Hello to all! I found this in the the hole which i have made it because of the pottery that i'm searching for.I'm not sure what it is,looks like a premolar 2 from a deer (Cervus elaphus)...Am i right?
  18. Animal hoof?

    I am trying to identify this animal part. It appears to be the outer cover of a hoof. Can someone confirm that and tell me what animal it is likely from?
  19. pleistocene antler

    A little over a year ago, I found the larger piece of antler in a dredge pile from a canal near Ft Myers that was being dredged. My friend and I also found the jaw of a sloth, several large but broken bone pieces, a mammoth tooth and myriad bones (82 different sections, mostly about 1 " thick and about 6 " long, but unidentifiable, with several broken joint pieces) However, my question is about the smaller antler piece I found in the peace river near Wachula, FL last weekend....it is so very much smaller, not that it couldn't be, but I am wondering if it is perhaps a different species of deer, or maybe something else, like peccary?
  20. Skeletal remain in question

    I found this along the Colorado river in Austin, Texas. Thought the hole might be man made? Thanks
  21. Is it a hoof?

    Hi Everyone! I found this today digging in an outcropping of the San Mateo formation in Oceanside, California. I have found horse teeth at this site before. Not sure about this one, but I am wondering if it could be a hoof? Any thoughts are greatly appreciated! Thanks
  22. Deer Heart Clams

    Found these today on two seperate occasions. Both of them were inside of a rock. I wasn't lucky enough to get them out without damage but I certainly tried. The flint that was wrapped around them was almost impossible to fracture. I used a welders chipping hammer. I don't recommend using one for extracting fossils. These were found on the Dry Frio River near Uvalde, Tx. It used to be the cretacious lower gulf so there is a multitude of marine fossils to find.
  23. Need some help on a molar? Deer?

    Well Gang, here's the latest unknown I could use some help with. A surface find Manatee County, FL. Likely Plio-Pleistocene in age. It is good sized and just over 1 inch at its widest (2.8cm X 1.5cm) in occlusal view. Can anyone confirm it is or is not deer? Would love to hear the reasoning on how/why. Went thru some of the other Deer/llama ID posts but I'm still unsure. I'd love to have genus if either is possible if its not deer. Let me know if any other measurements/views are needed. Thanks, Chris
  24. Pleistocene gator and deer fossil ? Brunswick, GA

    Hi Guys, This would be the first alligator tooth that I've run across .. but it is really the deer skull fragment that I'm curious about ? I'm calling it that because that is my assumption seeing what I think is the interior of the skull with the brain impression and the lower part of the antler base ? These deposits are dredge spoil piles and have a mish-mash literally of marine and terrestrial fossils. I tossed in an image of the G. cuvier for kicks because the preservation is pretty good coming from a land site. If you need additional images let me know. For Kicks. Cheers, Brett
  25. deer teeth?

    Almost all the old teeth I find are bison...I hope I have something different this time,...or maybe camel??
