  1. 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.
  2. 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 ↓↓↓↓
  3. Нorse teeth?

    Found this teeth in water on the right bank of the Dnieper river, Ukraine, Kherson region.
  4. 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?
  5. 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)
  6. 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?
  7. Just watched fascinating documentary on equid evolution- bout half on the origin (Dawn horse), then progresses to present-day..........Bone
  8. Horse of a Different Color

    Thoughts on age/epoch? Ancient or not? Found on a gravel bar on a river in Southern Minnesota.
  9. 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!
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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):
  16. 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?
  17. 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
  18. Had to get back to the Peace River today. Eight days since the last trip and I was getting anxious to get back to the spot where I found the partial tusk to see if i could find more. It was a warm day but overcast and windy, so the wetsuit was in order again to combat the water temp and the breeze. It made for a comfortable day of digging and I was able to spend 5 1/2 hours in the water. First check of the river bank when getting out of the kayak yielded a nice 3/4" Hemi getting the day off to a good start. I then worked my way back to the area where I found the piece of ivory tusk on my last visit to start sifting. The second sifting of the day yielded a horse molar and a few small shark teeth. Then up came a chunk of ivory tusk 8 1/2" x 4 1/4"! It looked just like the piece from last time. I then pulled up what I think is a vertebra, but looking closer I will need to get a full set of photos and post it in the ID section for review. As the day progressed I was lucky to come up another definite vertebra, a bison upper molar, a glyptodont dermal scute, eagle ray tooth plate, what looks like a fragment of a mammoth tooth with two long roots, a mastodon tooth fragment and an assortment of shark teeth. Along the way I also pulled up two more sections of the tusk - one 3"x5" that I was able to fit into the larger piece and another piece 2"x 3 3/4" along with several fragments. I will try and compare the piece of tusk from the last visit to the one found today to see if it could be one in the same. Possible it could be a pair? Here are some photos of the best of the day.
  19. Horse tooth?

    Could this be a horse tooth? How old?
  20. ID help tooth horse?

    Could you please help me identify this tooth? It was found today on the beach in South Texas. It’s not in great shape like others I have found in the same area. Also are the markings just normal wear? Measures 2.75 inches long and 1 inch wide. Thank you so much for your help!
  21. Horse/Donkey skull id

    Hello ! What a wonderful day ! I went today with my dog Lea to Great Morava river to try to find maybe some pleistocene fossils cause i haven't found any before and what a luck! I found a horse skull, at first i thought that it's not fossilized but i was wrong cause it is ! Now the question is : Can anyone help me to identify this specie cause it's obviously from pleistocene period. I found it in Great Morava river (Paraćin). My first ever pleistocene fossil that i've found! pics are bellow enjoy! Darko
  22. Neohipparion eurystyle

    Mostly I hunt the Peace River, but sometimes I venture into the tributaries. About 3 weeks ago I hunted a creek and found this small lower premolar. Hoping it was not Equus ( no disrespect intended), I sent it to Richard Hulbert for identification. His answer: Identification of lower molars is difficult.. This horse has an isolated protocone on its upper molars making those easier to ID. I liked getting this identification because finding one of these can help to "date" a hunting location. Fast forward to yesterday, hunting a different tributary creek and Looks pretty similar to me.. Here are some sources to compare, 1st from Kansas, 2nd from Florida museum of Natural History. Thinking size as the 1st criteria because there are lots of variations in the lower jaw teeth of the SAME horse based on wear and position. Just documenting some new insights that I do not have on many of my other horse tooth finds. Enjoy. Jack
  23. Back to the Peace River!

    Went back to the river yesterday inspite of the high gauge readings and strong discharge reports. The reports were spot on! The water level was visibly higher and the flow was really moving along. It was a tough pull to get the kayak up river to my favorite spot. I passed several new obstructions on the way, including a 25' to 30' palm tree, root ball included, sitting in the river where there was no sign of it last week. When I arrived at my intended dig spot the usual sandy shoreline I have been beaching the kayak on did not exist. I had to climb the bank and tie off the kayak to a tree to keep it from washing downstream. My usual easy walk to start digging was hampered by deep water. I decided to climb the bank to avoid taking an unwanted swim and to keep from having to climb over a couple of downed tree trunks. This proved a bad idea as there was deep grass, numerous holes and a deep gully in the way - kept thinking about gators and snakes hiding below. So, back to the water and a slow careful advance over the tree trunks and through the deep water. I managed to get there without taking a dunk! Last Friday I found my first partial Mastodon tooth in this spot. Yesterday, within 15 minutes of starting to dig another, bigger partial Mastodon tooth came up! This one was clinging to the side of the shovel with the shovel blade between the teeth. I nearly dropped it I was so surprised. Luckily I got it into the screen before it could take a dive back in. By way of comparison below is a picture of last weeks tooth with the one from yesterday. My time was limited yesterday, only could spend about 2 hours digging. In addition to the Mastodon partial I also found a nice meg and horse molar. All in all - Great Day!
  24. Pliocene river find

    When I picked up this bone and pieces my thought was bison. Reviewing it I’m not so sure, so will I defer to the experts! I was disappointed though to see this had been run over by an ATV on the sand bar... also sad to see really how polluted our water ways are...
  25. Everyone said NSR was dry and picked over but I hiked 9 hrs and found some cool stuff. My favorites are the Protostega costal bone with partial rib head preserved, the mosasaur bone with bite mark and the artifacts. I walked in tracks all day but the river is too large for someone to get everything and people miss quite a bit.
