  1. Horse teeth- modern or earlier?

    So..............going through my fossils I've had for decades, and just wanted to know if these two horse teeth are modern or "ice age" fossils. Both very heavy, creek finds in Kansas City and both have identical cusps. Thoughts appreciated! Bone
  2. My Dear Cousins

    Somehow, I find this terribly sad. https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20200128-how-did-the-last-neanderthals-live
  3. Please help ID this little guy

    Hello folks. I'm back after an extended break. I've found some really cool fossils on my land in southern Missouri, Texas county, USA. Just a few miles south of cabool. A seasonal stream flows through my land exposing some cool finds, not to mention- the heavy rains are washing the topsoil away. From the hundreds of artifacts I've collected, this spot must have been an indigenous settlement. My best guess is that this item was in the hands of those early Americans. I can see why, this is my 2nd most favorite of the collection. Please help me identify what this is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. FYI, I have overcast skies at the moment and very limited internet access. These pics are the best I can do. Mm measurements are roughly 66mm x 38mm x 25mm
  4. Idea for next Fossil

    This is a small collection I have for my granddaughter for when she gets older. I’m limited to getting my fossils from antique shops or online except for the arrowheads. What would be something else to pick up for her that’s maybe in a different time frame or different then what I have. My budget it limited only getting one check a month so can’t spend a fortune. Ideas??
  5. North Sea mammoth bone?

    Hi all, I was given this piece of bone as a Christmas gift. From what I was told it is from the North Sea and is an Ice Age bone. It was suggested by the seller that it could be mammoth. Is it possible to confirm this and if so, what bone could it be part of? It has a hole that goes all the way through if that helps. Thanks in advance
  6. Ice age fragment

    My father found this today, it is in a spot that has Pleistocene fossils. He seems to think that it is something special, he even thought that it can be a chunk from the sabre from a Smilidon. In my opinion it is at most an unidentifiable fragment. the location is on a beach by Charleston. Thanks so much, Wyatt
  7. Unknown Pleistocene bone from Jax

    I found an unidentified fossil on the beach here in Ponte Vedra, just south of Jacksonville. Previously I have found other Ice Age mammal bones and teeth, including a Glyptodont scute, a horse tooth and part of a mammoth tusk as well as fish and reptile material. I’m no anatomist but based on the bilateral symmetry this looks to me like it comes from the spine or tail of something. Actually I’m put in mind of the bony knob on the end of the tail of an Ankylosaur, though I’m obviously not suggesting it is that. Can anyone weigh in? Thanks in advance...u
  8. Hey everyone! On Wednesday, as I finally had some time, I decided to take Sara out to my favorite hunting spot: the Zandmotor (Netherlands). I definitely did not regret that decision! If you've never heard of the Zandmotor before, it's an artificial beach extension just south of The Hague, and the sand that was used was dredged from the North Sea and is full of Ice Age megafaunal mammal bones and tons of Eemian shells. If you want to see some more of my finds and hunts there, just look up "Zandmotor" in the TFF search bar and you should find a bunch of stuff When we got there it was raining, which annoyed me a little bit because the forecast said it wouldn't... The rain also makes the sand stick to the fossils which can become annoying when looking for small fossils or trying to recognize the thing you just picked up. But, having just spent an hour in the bus to get here, I didn't want to turn back immediately. Luckily the rain stopped within half an hour, and I wasn't even on the Zandmotor yet (I have to walk about an hour from the bus stop to the Zandmotor itself) and after that the weather alternated between cloudy and sunny which was nice. While I usually always take a pass by the shell banks, today I decided to only walk along the shoreline to increase the chances of finding good mammal stuff. In fact, there had been a strong eastern wind on Tuesday which helped uncover a lot of the bones and make them wash ashore. This did not go unnoticed, there were a lot indeed! Here is my first big find of the day, a great complete horse astralagus!
  9. Ice Age Human or Animal Teeth?

    Found an object among rocks which resembles eroded teeth enamel Location: Tobermory, Ontario Dimensions: Length: 4 cm Width: 2 cm Height: ~ 1 cm Any ideas?
  10. 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?
  11. Ice Age bone ID. North Texas

    Hey guys can anyone recognize what this piece of bone is from? It matches the look of Pleistocene material from my area, far north central Texas. Thanks!

  13. Help identify tooth

    Need some help identifying this tooth I found the other day. I thought it was a horse at first but the molar pattern is a bit different and it doesn’t seem to be as wide as a horse. Any thoughts?
  14. The Maasvlakte 2 museum

    Hi everyone, Last Thursday I had a school trip to the harbor of Rotterdam, the biggest harbor in Europe and 10th biggest in the world. We were specifically in the Maasvlakte 2 area, the newest addition to the harbor to accommodate larger ships and more containers. There's a small museum there which we visited. The intent of the trip was to discover more on how the harbor evolved to fit the needs of the world in the ever-growing globalization of the planet. However what no one else in the class knew (because no one else in the class is as crazy as we all are ) is that the sand used to make the artificial beach of the Maasvlakte 2 is full of fossils. Same story as for the Zandmotor (and many other fossil-containing beaches in the NL), the sand used to make the artificial beaches is extracted from the North Sea floor, which is very rich in fossils, especially of Pleistocene age. I was really hoping to be able to have some free time during the trip in order to go on the beach and hunt a little bit (I've already been there once, some 4-5 years ago), but that unfortunately didn't work out. Luckily in the small museum they had a section dedicated to the paleontology of the beach, and I had the pleasure to visit it. Big mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) tusk. This one is probably not from the beach itself but rather dredged from the North Sea. And here's a view of the small exhibition with a big mammoth hip and femur (I think they're casts though).
  15. Large unknown from Florida

    Found a large chunk of bone while fossil hunting in Florida earlier this month. Found in a tributary to the Peace River near Arcadia. Not sure there is enough left to get a useful identification, but figured I would post and see how it goes. The chunk is roughly 5 x 4 x 2.5 inches, the grid underneath is quarter inch squares.
  16. La Brea Tar Pits Bone Fragment

    Here’s an interesting one. I docent at the Page Museum at the La Brea Tar Pits, and while I was talking to some visitors one of them gave me a piece of bone fragment his father found (among many other easier to identify pieces) at the tar pits before the museum was created. I have showed to some of the researchers at la Brea, and their guess was that it was a tibia fragment from some mammal. So far based on my own comparisons, it seems closest to a dire wolf, but if anyone else has any other ideas, I’d love to hear them. Thanks!
  17. Do you have ice age animal bones, teeth, or tusks found in British Columbia, and want to learn more about them? Or share a story about them? If so, the British Columbia Megafauna Project wants to hear from you! Ice age animal remains are dispersed across museums and private collections and there is no synthesis on the condition of these specimens, their species, their provenience, their age, or to when they date. In effort to remedy this, we are a research group based at Simon Fraser University looking to partner with individuals to better understand the Late Pleistocene in British Columbia. Our goal is to know when these animals lived (from radiocarbon dating), information on their health and age (from the bones), composition of their diet, and how and where they moved across ice age British Columbia (using stable isotope analysis). We are traveling the province to visit collections this summer. If you are interested in analysis, we can do minimally invasive sampling on-site, and will not take away your bone, tusk, or tooth. All results will be shared with participants, and participants will be gratefully acknowledged (or maintain anonymity) in SFU Megafauna Project research. For questions, more information, or to discuss collection specimens, we can be contacted on this forum, and at: Archaeology Isotope Lab: archiso@sfu.ca Phone: 778 782 5045 Website: https://www.sfu.ca/megafauna.html

  19. Reindeer vertebra

    From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A reindeer, Rangifer tarandus, vertebra found on the Zandmotor, about 40'000 years old ("Mammoth-steppe" period, in the Late Pleistocene). It seems to have been bleached by the sun (most bones on the Zandmotor are darker than this).
  20. Ice Age Trail find

    Found on Ice Age Trail walking trail. Fossil bone or tooth? Odd shape. Lighter than rock.
  21. Need help identifying gift (mammal?)

    I recently was given a fossil as a gift. As I understand it, the seller does not know where it was found or has any idea what it is. There is some writing on the side which I’ll attach a picture of. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  22. Between work and home life 2018 wasn't much of a year to get out hunting for me. Outside of two short trips down to the Ramanessin I didn't really get out this year. Hoping to change that in 2019. To start I am working on a family vacation to Florida around March. The last time I was down there at that time of year I was able to do a day of creek hunting around Wauchula that netted a ton of small shark teeth including multiple mini megs as well as a slew of ice age mammal items. My favorite was a small glyptodon scute which was one of my personal bucket list items . I am looking for suggestions on areas I can start researching that would be in range of a day trip based out of the Orlando area. Call it a 2 hour radius of Orlando so I have time to hunt. Not looking for anyone's special hunting grounds, just general suggestions. Haven't looked to see who might still be offering guided trips these days as its been a few years since my last visit, but I am willing to entertain that option. I still have the books I gathered for my last trip so I will start with a refresher from those, but any advice would be appreciated
  23. As some might have read in a previous topic, I went to visit my girlfriend in Finland. Unfortunatly Finland must be one of the worst places to find fossils in the world, I did manage to find some quartz vains and a few pieces that may or may not be amber (have to do the hot needle test on them first) Even urban fossil hunting is near impossible as pretty much all buildings are made from the fossil-lacking stones that can be found in Finland. The only urban fossils I found was in the Burger King in the Helsinki Central Station, the floor was littered with orthocones there. But Finland really isn't a good place to hunt fossils. But one thing that definitly is a worth a visit is the Finnish Museum of Natural History! It isn't a really big museum, the collection isn't that big, but the way it is presented is very awesome! One of the few musea that nails being modern and educative at the same time without overdoing it. Especially the Taxidermy diorama's were done amazingly. But I will ofcourse start this topic with what I think will interest you guys the most, the Paleontology part of the museum. A mural with Pikaia, Opabinia & Hallucigenia models Trilobites, most of which were found in Aland (Finland), Gotland (Sweden) and other neighboring countries of Finland Trilobites, most of which were found in Aland (Finland), Gotland (Sweden) and other neighboring countries of Finland Orthocone models Graptolites Eurypterid found in Saarermaa in Estonia (Silurian age) Eurypterid model Giant orthocone model
  24. Mammal vertebra from the ZM

    Hi all, I found this fossil vertebra near the Zandmotor (Netherlands) last weekend. It's from the last Ice Age, late Pleistocene (around 40'000 years old). There is the possibility that it is middle Pleistocene (around 600'000 years old), but that possibility is very slim. So it's (most likely) a fossil vertebra from one of the typical megafaunal Ice Age critters that roamed Europe alongside the mammoths, woolly rhino's, etc. For now, I am thinking it could be from some deer species, but I am really not sure. What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance, Max
  25. Hi everyone- I have a juvenile mammoth tusk that I would like to learn how to stabilize and restore. The problem is I have (almost) no idea how to even start! The tusk is fully dried out, but it’s split down the middle. I need some advice! Here’s what I know has to be done: 1. Clean the outside and inside as much as possible without using water- any suggestions on what to use? 2. Superglue the two pieces together and use hose clamps to hold the two pieces together- any suggestions on glue/method? 3. Fill gaps/cracks with epoxy- any suggestions on a good type? 4. Sand sand sand! 5. Beyond this point I’m not sure- is there some sort of protective varnish people use? I’m sure I’m missing about a dozen crucial steps here- I have literally never tried anything like this before, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. I posted some photos of the tusk, and I will post photos of progress! Thanks everyone.
