  1. Pachy Horn Spike

    I am obtaining this 2.6 inch pachy horn spike. Is there anyway to tell what particular specimen? Pachy vs stygimoloch vs Dracorex? Thanks all.
  2. Identify this?

    I inherited this tooth, or claw from my grandfather. I have no idea what it is. I'm just looking for help identifying it. Thoughts?
  3. Newbie wanting to learn...

    I have a few pictures here of some shards of bone, horn, and or antler. Is there a way to tell the difference between them? The first two photos I believe to be horn, bison. Number three and four I also believe to be horn because of the wood grain pattern, but because it is a small fragment 1 1/2” I suppose it could be bone? photos 5&6 look to me like a rib bone, has a woody grain to it but is very solid, thick. However, I feel this could be horn or bone. How to tell the difference? The final two photos to me just looks like a shard of river polished bone, not horn. The wood grain is much less prominent than the others.
  4. Fossil ID: Bison Horn?

    Hi TFF, thanks for having me. I frequently find fossils all over the Las Vegas area, but usually things that came from the sea: shells, small organisms, coral. On one of my last outings, I found this horn. I find many Rugosa, coral horns, in the exposed limestone on the peaks around Mt. Charleston area. This example looks very different to me. It is about 8 inches, 20cm long, and is very heavy, like stone and rock. It appears to me that the outer shell "horn" is partially intact, though long turned to rock. The core is a different texture and color as well. It was found on an exposed limestone ridge a mile or two south of Charleston Peak, ~11,000 ft elevation, partially buried in scree. My first thought was it was some sort of tusk from a sea animal, due to other sea fossils in the area. The bison examples I compared it to on the web could be a match to my untrained eye, but none of them to be as "petrified" or stone-like as this one. I thought I'd share, as it seems like a rare find for the area.
  5. Does anyone have, or can find, a picture of a fossil of the head horns of hybodus? Not the fin spines, but their "devil horns". I can't find any pictures of them that include visible horns...or at least that I can make out.
  6. The Crinoid Road Cut

    I don't get to go out fossil hunting as much as I would like these days, but I was able to sneak out to a local road cut for a few hours the other morning. It was the day before my birthday after all! A great excuse for me to convince the wife to watch the kiddos for a few hours. This particular road cut is dated to the Mississippian and is full of crinoids! I was literally walking over them. They were everywhere! Upon closer inspection I found that there were a couple of layers that were mainly composed of crinoids. This large slab was laying on the ground in front of the cut. The slab was almost 2 meters in length. Covered in crinoid fragments. Another large slab of crinoid infested rock. Again, it was on the ground in front of the cut. Yet another slab. I finally remembered to put something in for scale... A picture of what I am calling crinoid gravel. If you look closely you can see many crinoid fragments mixed in. This gravel was up a little higher on the cut. The road cut has multiple accessible levels. Here is a sample of some of the pieces I picked up. In my excitement, I started out picking up everything. Then I quickly realized that was an effort in futility. I thought the specimen at the very bottom right of the picture might have been a calyx when I first picked it up, but I think it may be a geode with a piece of crinoid attached. The largest of the "coin" looking columnals (third in the top row from left to right) is over an inch in diameter. With work being crazy, I haven't had a chance to go through everything and clean them up for a closer look. Sorry this photo isn't the best. It's late here and I'm trying to not wake up the family. Its the best I can do under sub par basement lighting. A very nice (and heavy!) hash plate that I was able to manhandle to the truck. Crinoids were not the only things I found. This horn coral was sticking up out of the rubble just waiting for me to come along and take it home! I like how it is coming up out of the matrix. Lording over its domain! lol I also came across bryozoan on occasion. The shale that they are in is very delicate and brittle. It's barely more than clay. I had to handle with care. Overall it wasn't a bad little outing. Any day out fossil hunting is a good day! I picked up much more, a few longer crinoid stems, a couple of small hash plates to practice prepping on, some geological items for my brother who is more into geology than paleontology. I ran into a few brachiopods, but most were not very well preserved or were badly weathered. Ill try to post a few more/better pictures as I go back through things and get them cleaned up a bit. I also have more pictures of the exposure and crinoid layers that I might post as well. Happy Hunting!
  7. Anyone know what this it?

    Does anyone know what this is? It doesn’t look like a fossil and it looks like some sort of horn/antler section of a mammal. It’s about 7cm long. Thanks in advance.
  8. I found this in the wall of a creek in the TX panhandle. It is 3 1/4 inches long and 2 inches wide at the base. It weighs 7.5 oz. Not sure what it could be and would love to hear from someone who might have some insight. Let me know if I can give more information. Thanks so much.
  9. Just a short video of a quick trip to the beach last week to enjoy the spring sunshine!
  10. What is this?

    Looks like an antler or a tooth? Dug up by a friend who goldmines in the Yukon. I'm thinking maybe a bison? Was hoping a mammoth tusk but think maybe not. What you think? Thank you so much for the information.!
  11. Petrified wood?

    Some one at the park brought this to me I think it may be petrified wood ... was found in the gravel drive it is a pretty good size chunk from the normal gravel chunks. My second thought on it was a chunk of horn but it has no openings on either end. found west of Houston Texas ...from a gravel load from the Brazos River.
  12. Mystery dinosaur Horn

    Here's another Cretaceous western fossil that needs an ID. Its either from Hell Creek or Lance Creek (will have to check my records again), and I initially purchased it as a young triceratops nasal horn. After looking at it some more, I'm wondering if it might be an ankylosaur spike, or maybe something else. Thoughts?
  13. Horn, bone, petrified wood?...or a big 0

    at first glance I was thinking petrified wood but in looking at it it looks kind of hornlike possibly and antler or fragment? but then it may just be another odd rock.
  14. possible whale tooth

    This one confuses me as it doesn't have the dark colors of a tooth. However, it neither has a distinguishable pattern of any coral at the bottom. it's about three inches long.
  15. whale tooth?

    Hello. Brand new to the forum. Found this specimen on a beach on the west coast of Vancouver Island. I have approached a number of paleontologists and amateur fossil hunters about its identity. Responses have varied between being from a smaller toothed whale to a walrus. My dentist questioned it being a tooth because the shape is tapered at the wrong end and thought it may have broken off. He suggested it may be a horn of some kind. I am new to this! Would appreciate any and all suggestions. Thanks.
  16. Can someone please help me out here? I'm new to all of this and my friend is asking me about this fossil he stumbled upon today in Ohio. I've been researching other posts but I'm not 100% on what I'm looking at here. Thank you!
  17. I found this “Fossil” in the Netherlands near the German border about 10 years ago and have always wondered what it might be. To me it looks like part of a horn or antler. Wonder if anyone can help me out. Thanks craig
  18. Unknown... Need help!

    I do not know where this was originally discovered however I found it while cleaning my mother's garage. It looks like it's been through a lot... Can anyone help me decifer what this might be?

    Hi, What do you think, what type of horn is it? I found it in Europe, Hungary.

  23. Does anyone know what these are?

  24. Fossil tooth?

    I found this in tioga county upstate NY in a creek bed. I'm curious what it is exactly. I've always stared at the ground in hopes of finding something neat and never have I seen one like this. I believe it's a tooth or maybe piece of a horn.
