  1. Florida - Peace River

    Hi everyone, I have some stuff that was found in the Peace River, Florida. I think I have an idea what these are, but confirmation would be great! First off, a horse tooth? Could anything more specific be identified? It's 2" Then there's this, and I think it's alligator scute. 1 inch Lastly, alligator tooth partial? 1 inch long
  2. After getting many of my teeth ID’d by Harry, shellseeker and others I decided it was time to step up my game a little bit and start learning how to do this myself. I have been finding a lot of new teeth lately and plan on continuing to find them. I’ve been doing tons of research and built up a pretty decent database of horse teeth descriptions and information. So here’s my first try let me know what you think! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @fossillarry I’m going to go with Nannippus Fricki. Upper left M1 or M2
  3. ID Florida Vertebrate Fossil

    Hello, East Venice, FL vertebrate mystery fossil. Unique indentation in V shape. Found in Pleistocene material. Cracked by tractor. Recent material identified in same location as: Sloth, Equus, Meg teeth. I realize it is not the best specimen but the V shape on one side is unique. Thanks in advance for your suggestions/identification. I didn't see an example in the gallery or textbook. Height is 5cm
  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. 3 toed horse tooth?

    I am pretty sure this is a complete tooth. I’ve never found one with this pattern.
  6. Unknown Florida mammal tooth

    Hi all, I received a jar of fossils from my grandfather a couple years ago before he passed away, and was wondering what type of tooth it was. Most of the stuff in the jar is from Florida but I’m not positive everything is. It is 2 1/4 inches long. my guess is it’s either a mammoth or horse tooth.
  7. Brazos River Bison/Horse Jaw

    Found these two teeth still attached to a segment of jawbone on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston today. They're definitely mineralized, so I believe I can rule out ordinary cows. However, after doing some research online the teeth seem to be much too flat to be bison, so maybe horse? They both look like molars, although one of the roots is broken off of the first tooth - I honestly have no idea how it managed to hang on for so long. Either way, I was incredibly excited to find this, especially after braving the 90 degree plus heat for several hours without sunscreen. Any help on an ID would be much appreciated. Thank you!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. Item# 1 - This seems to be a horse toe bone, but not sure. It’s very cylindrical in shape. Item #2 - This looks very odd. Like a ray dermal spike, but not like any I’ve ever seen. item #3 - No clue. It has a pattern on it and looked very curious. ↓↓↓↓ Photos are further down ↓↓↓↓
  11. Нorse teeth?

    Found this teeth in water on the right bank of the Dnieper river, Ukraine, Kherson region.
  12. Found this, not sure what it is

    I found this while digging in my garden. I feel like one of them might be a horse tooth. Do you guys have any thoughts?
  13. An article that talks about fossil remains dated 47mya in the former coalfield of Geiseltal in Saxony-Anhalt about how ancient horses shrank and how ancient tapirs showed the opposite in that they got bigger. https://www.technologynetworks.com/tn/news/exceptional-fossils-give-window-into-mammalian-evolution-332518 Ring et al. (2020) Divergent mammalian body size in a stable Eocene greenhouse climate. Scientific Reports. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-020-60379-7 (the article is open access)
  14. More Horse of Course?

    Found by my buddy on a river gravel bar/bank in southern Minnesota. As I've stated in some previous posts the geology in our area is upper Cretaceous. However, the river where this specimen was found pulse floods and is like a giant gravel mixer. In the past and more recently Pleistocene fossils have been found in the river gravel deposits in my area (mammoth, bison, etc). It general it is very difficult to age by geology/context. I'm hoping ancient horse but more sets of eyes on it are better. What do you think and thanks!? Any thoughts on age? Ancient horse or not?
  15. Just watched fascinating documentary on equid evolution- bout half on the origin (Dawn horse), then progresses to present-day..........Bone
  16. Horse of a Different Color

    Thoughts on age/epoch? Ancient or not? Found on a gravel bar on a river in Southern Minnesota.
  17. 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!
  18. Hi all! Found these in the Kaw river in Kansas this weekend. I believe this is the cannon bone of an equine-very heavy and nice patina. The others, eh, don't know. I believe this is a tooth, but from what I don't know. I would have guessed deer tooth, but not with the ridges, and way too small......Most intriguing are these two objects, one of which is stone, with a hole all the way through. The other also has a hole all the way through (one end still packed with sand), but really don't know. Maybe an artifact as opposed to fossil? Any help appreciated!..... Bone
  19. Collecting your collection

    So, I havent been active for a bit. Other hobbies and life dontcha know. But last night my sons dog decided he would dig around in one of the boxes of fossil stuff I have and pulled out a big zip loc bag of teeth I collected back in the late 90s, early 2000's down in Fla. the phosphate mine would not allow us in the mine (ARGH) but did allow us to collect where they dumped the slurry from processing. Needless to say, the vast majority of the stuff was beat to hell. An occasional gem was found, but mostly broken stuff. Since the dog dragged it out, I went through it and pulled the best of the damaged stuff. Even broken, you can see how gorgeous they would have been whole. I think it makes for a decent little mount regardless. And it reminds me I have boxes o stuff to go through yet. LOL
  20. Fun North Sulphur River Texas hunt today. The Plesisoar podial is huge. The mosasuar jaw section has teeth hidden under the red matrix. The big mosasaur cervical vert is in great shape.
  21. Tooth ID? Horse, camel, llama

    I found this along the Satilla River in Southeast Georgia USA. Can anyone help me identify what kind of tooth it is? It is very square in circumference. There are four holes in the bottom. It is fairly straight, not very curved.
  22. Is this a fragment of a horse tooth?

    From Myrtle Beach If you know your horse teeth, I'd be interested to know if you think this is a fragment of one? Thanks!
  23. Went out to the Peace River yesterday. The water flow and depth were down to very workable levels. Weather was very nice after several days of below normal temps. I still needed the wetsuit due to the water temp, but it was a really great day to be on the river. After an easy paddle up river I found my targeted spot was at a level similar to where it was in October. I was able to easily pull the kayak up onto a sandy bank and step out with no effort. A check of the bank for about 25 yards in either direction failed to yield up any finds. With that I began working my way along the river to the spot I had in mind for the day. Things started off slow with only various small shark teeth and chips of mammoth found through the morning. Feeling a bit disappointed I headed out more into the middle of the river, luckily easy to get to with the river level down. I was back at a spot where I found a Gomphotherium partial tooth in early October. Within only a few minutes and a couple of shovels full of gravel I was rewarded with another partial Gomp tooth! As I worked the area for the rest of the afternoon I came up with a horse molar, a partial vert, turtle scutes, a nice tiger shark tooth and many more small shark teeth. It turned out to be a great day. Photos below: Best of the day: New Gomph tooth: Gomp tooth from October alongside the new one (first find on top):
  24. Horse teeth

    I purchase a horse tooth, supposedly form Dakota White River Formation Include 4 pictures. ID as Mesohippus S. Dakota Oligocene. These horses use to be 60 cm tall but my tooth is 48 mm long. In my opinion too big tooth for such a small horse. Is this possible?
  25. Transitional Horse tooth

    Last Friday, January 10th, is a day I'll remember because of this tooth. It is always a thrill to find one of my favorite fossils, and this one, by size alone, makes it a tooth from a small horse that predates Equus sp. I find enough of these teeth to consider my self above average knowledge on these late Miocene horses. An early Miocene horse: Parahippus is a horse that evolved in North America about 18 million years ago and one of the best examples of Parahippus in all the United States comes from Thomas Farm, a fossil site that’s about an hour northwest of Gainesville. Unfortunately, I do not find Parahippus teeth. I do find Calippus, Nannippus, Cormohipparion, Hippohiparrion, neohipparion, many of which filled the gap between 13 mya to 3 mya. Look at this Cormohipparion from FLMNH and compare to my newest find above. Having seen 100s of these small teeth, the new find is very different, even though the size (17 by 15 mm is exactly the same as Cormohippaion that I have in my collection.) My new tooth has to be pathological or extremely rare. Here is the new addition after it is completely dry: So what did I do. Sent an email to Dr Richard Hulbert, Director of the Vertebrate Paleontology Research Lab at the University of Florida. What does he think? Not many choices here. This afternoon, I sent this tooth (after taking photos) to UF Vertebrate Paleontology Research Lab so Richard and his team can perform that "detailed analysis" he indicated at the start of his email. @Harry Pristis @fossillarry@PrehistoricFlorida Maybe the tooth will become famous, mentioned in many research papers. Maybe not, either way I love this hobby..... Jack
