  1. Horse tooth?

    Could this be a horse tooth? How old?
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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...
  7. 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.
  8. Pliocene bone river find in Iowa

    To me this seems to be a toe or foot bone of some sort but from what? Found in an area where bison, mammoth have been found. thanks for looking and any educated guesses!
  9. Is this a Pleistocene horse tooth?

    New here and to fossils as well. I wanted to start collecting Pleistocene era fossils as that is what I am interested in most. A friend of mine got me started off with this horse tooth. I am fairly sure it is indeed a horse tooth but is it from the Pleistocene era? I have no idea where it came from either. What tooth would it have been? Molar? Any insight from you guys is greatly appreciated!
  10. Horse Metacarpal Bone?

    I found this in Dallas County, Texas. I am not sure if it is part of a bison or horse or donkey, etc (equus)..... Any help is appreciated. Thank you!
  11. Possible horse and crocodile tooth

    Found these two teeth in a creek in north texas. I believe the first may be a partial horse and the second a crocodile? Any help would be appreciated as always.
  12. Fossil Horse Tooth?

    This is the first larger mammal tooth I came across while fossil hunting for megalodon teeth in South Carolina. Tooth was found in a stream in the general area between Charleston and Summerville along with some Meg teeth. What do you suppose this came from? Camel, horse, giant ground sloth?
  13. Horse or Bovine Tooth? Approximate Age?

    I found this tooth last week in the Illinois River in NW Arkansas. I’m guessing it’s not terribly old, but I’d like some help narrowing down if at all possible. I think it’s a horse, but not positive. It looks as as if it has been buried in the mud at some point due to the dirt being up in the root. Thank you for any help given.
  14. Pleistocene (Ice Age) fossils ID

    Hi all, Planning to better organize my small fossil collection in a single showcase, so with emphasis on Mezozoic finds I'll probably be able to devote max one shelf to the Quarternary. Would be good to clean up and recheck the ID (I know just a half anyway). So a bit of help will be appreciated:) The items: 1. Woolly mammoth tooth?
  15. Bison or horse scapula

    Can anyone here differentiate a scapula from horse or bison? I’ve seen countless images on line, but I’m still stumped by what I have here.
  16. 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
  17. Mammal Tooth?

    I found this on Topsail Island the other day. I know some people have found horse teeth on the beach so curious if this is a broken one. Looks like a molar.
  18. Horse teeth ??

    Maybe horse teeth cooper river Charleston sc Top Just over 2inches long just over 1inch thick bottom 3inches long 1.25 inches wide
  19. The past month on the river has produced a wide variety of finds. I have been very lucky as a rookie fossil hunter. It all started with the idea of finding some shark teeth. Now I can't wait to be surprised by the next thing the river will give up. The area I have been concentrating on has been producing mammoth tooth fragments on almost every visit. Today topped it off with what I think is a mammoth spit tooth. I will post better pictures tomorrow in the ID section. My resident photographer was not available tonight to provide her usual expert photos. I was so excited by the find I had to post a shot I took just after getting back to the launch site.
  20. Possible Horse Tooth

    A friend of mine went fishing at this location. He found an object that he wanted me to identified. To the best of my research, I have discovered that this is a possible horse tooth (3L Molar) and it is fossilized. I am guessing it could be 16 - 18 million years old. I would love to hear more from you guys on this.
  21. Quick river trip

    Took the family out to the river this past weekend for a quick look and found a few decent teeth and some less common finds - at least for us. Two shark vertebra and a horse tooth. It's getting crowded out there with the warm weather, time to explore some new spots.
  22. Fun day on the North Sulphur River Texas. We saw some cool wildlife. Here's my finds. A nice mix of pleisosaur, mosasaur, enchodus, shark, turtle, horse, coprolite and artifacts.
  23. It seems to me that our feral horses should be considered "Native Wildlife" like any other. Why did horses in North America go extinct?
  24. Horse teeth

    I have a few horse teeth I’ve found beachcombing, mostly after big storms. I have two that are really wide, I was thinking maybe it could be a camel tooth or something or maybe the other ones aren’t whole? I’ll put a few more pics below because I can only upload 4mb at a time
  25. Horse Tooth Growth

    I have been OUT this week... twice to the Peace River. It is hard to communicate how happy that makes me. Neither adventure found a large volume, but there were a couple of high quality fossils, even 2 very similar. 1st on Monday. Horse teeth form below the gum line, 1st the enamel "cap", then from looking at this one the dentine, and finally the roots. I have an enamel cap, no dentine, without the roots. This horse dies at a very young age while the tooth was forming. I'm thinking this may be mighty small for Equus, but that may be because I am fixated on pre_Equus small horses. Interesting, but then maybe the fossil gods are sending me a message. On Wednesday, I went back out to a different location and found ANOTHER very similar tooth... Once again, Enamel cap & dentine, but no roots... In this case, the tooth is used !! chewed on.. How does that happen?? I am missing something here. This is a bigger tooth, Equus but the width is still very small at 8mm. I might have to send an email to Richard Hulbert, but I am hoping that someone else has traveled this path of understanding horse teeth growth. I am going to submit and add the occlusal and root view as a reply... Jack
