  1. Distal end of Left Humerus

    Human? Found in Galveston Bay dredge spoils. Darrow
  2. Nice to see discoveries like this by dedicated avocational paleontologists! Who would think to look on the ceiling of caves for ancient footprints? "Fossil hunters also responsible for finding dinosaur tracks in Tumbler Ridge, B.C." http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/tumbler-ridge-south-africa-1.4555438
  3. Are these human teeth?

    Are either of these possibly human molars? If so, would they be recent, Native American, or perhaps older? If not, what do you think they are? They were found on the Potomac river, in Purse State Park, in southern MD on separate trips about a year apart.
  4. Parietal Bone

    Unlikely fossil, but interesting I thought. Retrieved from Galveston Bay dredge spoils exposed during an unusually low tide a few nights ago. The furrows (the meningeal artery?) became evident only after cleaning. Its incomplete but I'm fairly confident its a left parietal bone. I should have a copy of Medical Examiner's report in a few weeks. Darrow

  6. Please don't be human

    Hey everyone! I was looking for fossils again with two of my kids and we came across a few bones scattered across the creek bank. I'm seriously hoping this is NOT a human arm bone. It's obviously not a fossil. Thoughts? Should I call the cops? Should I just chillax? Also, am I a weirdo for picking it up and rolling it up in my sweatshirt?
  7. Bone Collectors!!

    Today I went exploring with my mom in a few creeks here in Virginia and found 2 bones. Trying to figure out what they might be from? I normally collect Shark teeth and shell fossils and this is my first time coming across anything like these. Can anyone help?!?! Holly
  8. Short Story I am photographing and cataloging fossil hominin skulls for my college, and I need some help identifying some of the unlabelled casts. I can generally get the species, but I am trying to narrow it down to a specific specimen that the model/cast is based on. Long Story I'm doing an independant study course at college, part of which is to photograph and catalogue all of the fossil hominin skull casts. It's the usual assemblage of Australopithecus through to H. erectus, Neanderthals and then Homo sapiens. However, a lot of the casts are very old and not that accurate, and most aren't labelled. I can generally get the species without too much of a problem, but I am trying to work out the specific fossil specimen the cast is based on, if it is based on a particular one. Also, the college does have some weird and outdated information. They classify the Paranthropus species as Robust Australopithecines, and all they Homo heidelbergensis are called Archaic Homo sapiens. I have taken all the photos, and am sorting through and creating the database. My first step is to label all the photos, export them to a simple folder database. Each photo is titled with the species, fossil catalogue name, nickname, then view. So for example: Au. africanus STS 5 "Mrs Ples" Anterior.jpg. Then I am creating a database of each cast, with all the relevant info (age, location, date found, brain capacity, etc). I am doing this with Bento software, but I plan to export from there to excel, or for whatever software the professors will use. After all of that, what I need is some help with working out which skull is which, particularly trying to figure out exactly which one eg. KNM-ER 1813 or whatever. There are a few, I'll post them up one at a time. Thanks in advance. Mystery Skull Number 1 It's certainly H. erectus, but I'm not certain if it's meant to be of a specific individual or just a general representation. I have seen a reconstruction composed of several of the remains found at Zhoukadian, so I wonder if it is one of those. Or perhaps Peking Man?
  9. Human Tooth From Peace River?

    I just found this tooth in Florida's Peace River. Unfortunately it is damaged but it looks similar to a human tooth. I have attached a photo of the top, showing the wear, and then photos of the sides of the tooth, including the side that is missing as it shows the interior of the tooth. I've also attached a photo of a human tooth for comparison.
  10. So I've been doing a lot of research about specie extinction lately, and the overriding trend seems to be a group overspecializes in something that makes them successful. If you look post-mass extinction animals, they are always basic/primitive organisms. This really gives me doubts about the future of man. It seems we have over-specialized in technology and complex governing systems. Anyone who understands chaos theory knows complex systems ALWAYS fail. Is mankind to suffer the same fate at the dinosaurs? Just something that kind of scared the heck out me. Has our reliance on social order and modern living doomed us to extinction? Not even the Dinosaurs were "too big to fail".
