  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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!
  4. 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?
  5. 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?
  6. 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?
  7. Skeletal remain in question

    I found this along the Colorado river in Austin, Texas. Thought the hole might be man made? Thanks
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. deer teeth?

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

    Hi all, Need a little help with this one. This partial jaw was found in north central Florida and I have been puzzling over it for awhile now. I believe it is a cervid but can't find a good match. I compared it to a modern whitetail deer but the teeth seem different to me. The bone is about the same size as the deer I compared it with but the teeth are much smaller than the modern jaw. Note that there is a partial tooth on what I believe to be the anterior end.
  14. Megaloceros calcaneum bone? Please help with ID

    Dear Guys, I recently noticed the surprising similarity between two calcaneus bones I found in the same forest felling in South Lithuania. I think they belong to deers but the first in the picture is very big (8,3 cm length) and second is small (6,3 cm length). Is it possible that larger bone belong to Irish Elk? The latest fossils of this animal found in Siberia, they are 8000 years old. Best Regards Domas
  15. Modern deer skull

    Hi all, Purchased this today at a flea market at a very low price (10€ = more or less 10$!). My first big skull in my collection, I'm very happy with it. It's a kind of deer skull, and all the teeth are in great condition. The seller had it in his room since 18 years, and therefore doesn't know anymore where it comes from (though it's probably somewhere in Europe). Anyone know the exact deer species of the skull? Best regards, Max
  16. Found yesterday in Peace River. I think it is a fossilized deer jaw but not sure. I did the tongue stick test - but it didn't seem sticky. I didn't do the match test because I didn't know how long you had to wait for it to dry out. What do you all think?
  17. Deer metacarpal

    From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A piece of metacarpal of a deer (maybe Cervus elaphus), found on the Zandmotor.
  18. Deer Ankle Bone

    I found these at the beach of NC. I am assuming they are deer ankle bones. Not the best specimens, but I'll take it Maybe bison, maybe equine? Thanks as always
  19. Piece of antler? North Sea

    Hi all, Same as the other one (North Sea; Pleistocene). I'm thinking piece of antler of a deer (Megaloceras?). Thanks in advance, Max
  20. On one of our first trips of the year, I found this partial skull. It was the proverbial case of "low hanging fruit" and it was just laying on the bottom in a pothole on the limestone bed, covered by about 6 inches of water. The sun lit up and it practically yelled out to be picked up. The cranium was mostly intact, but the lower jaw and all of the dentition was missing. It was in one piece, but it was fragile and it split into two equal halves on the bumpy ride home in the truck. This was a mixed blessing, because it revealed what was previously unseen: the brain impression on the inside of the cranium. It's quite beautiful in an morbid aesthetic way and it is the first time I have seen an impression on the inside of a skull. The skull is not fossilized, so it is fairly recent. I am not 100% sure of the species, but I suppose it's the white tail deer or one of it's immediate predecessors. I was not sure which forum to post this in, it's mainly just for sharing and to see if anyone else has a similar brain impression in their own collection (and see more photos of them). I would like to know exactly what species it is for ID purposes, so that is why I put it in here - mods feel free to move this one to a more appropriate forum if necessary.
  21. Megaloceros giganteus calcaenus

    The left heel bone (calcaenus) of a giant deer. The giant deer is also known as the irish elk. Though it is not related to the elk family, nor is it exclusive to Ireland.
  22. Whitetail deer jaw.

    From the album Ice Age Europe

    This is a close relative of the Irish Elk, the Odocoileus virginianus, or White tail deer. From Pleistocene Florida.
  23. Possible coprolite?

    I believe I got this from Roger Pabian (family member) either before or after he passed away a few years ago. I have been wondering what this thing is, and hoped to maybe get some input here. It is dark brown, round, somewhat smooth (kinda bumpy), and completely round and hard as a rock. I have a picture of it here... It reminds me of deer feces, since it is too big for a rabbit.
  24. Need some help here, found this jawbone on the beach the other day at Edisto. I think it may be a deer or elk but I have seen pics of sheep , goats and hogs and it resembles them also. Found this cool piece of pottery also about 10 ft away
  25. Deer Bone Dredged Offshore, Nj

    Bought this deer cannon bone (lower front leg) at my favorite shop on the Jersey Shore. The specimen was dredged from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean east of Cape May, NJ by a clam harvesting boat. The bone measures 9 1/2 inches long. This is the second specimen I have seen found along the same area of the NJ coast. This is the problem inherent in identifying presumably fossil remains of animals still living in the region. Offshore dumping is always a consideration but in this case not likely because the bone is not from a domestic animal. Two papers one published by the NJ State Museum, the other in a paleontology journal article about Pleistocene fauna of New Jersey do not include deer of any species. Interestng?
