  1. Hi, as recently I have been going mainly to the Pleistocene location, I have lots of surplus fossils I will gladly trade I'm not looking for anything specific - all offers are welcome. Set A Set B Set C Set D All these fossils come from Góra Kalwaria, Poland.
  2. Trip from corolla beach, NC

    Ok so to start off with this, I’m going to post my finds from a recent trip to the outer banks of North Carolina. I was very disappointed to be going to this location at first, because I had no idea of its fossil significance. I wanted to go further down south where the sharks teeth get huge, but the cases further down for Covid 19 were very high and I didn’t want to risk catching the virus so the whole group (who were all my neighbors) decided to head here instead. The first day on the beach, I found a lot of fish fossils (including those vertebrae’s) but it was the second day that was the best. I came across a canine jaw! With the teeth still inside it. It was just sitting in the gravel where I searched for shark teeth and I was so happy of my find because I knew it was something good. As the days went on, I kept finding more evidence of land mammal fossils here, including an astragalus, a scute for a mammal of some sort, crab fragments, fish bone, and a lot more! I have to say, in my years of collecting North Carolina I’ve never come across such an abundance of land mammal fossils in one week. The one question I have, however, is if there is any way you guys could help me identify the species of the jaw? I tried to look for fossil formations off shore but I can’t find any links leading to what this came from. I tried looking at land mammal fauna’s of N.C. but it pulled up nothing. Is there any way to get a specific ID on this jaw?
  3. ID HELP PLEASE!

    This was found near the Farmdale Geologic Exposure, and I am having a heck of a time identifying it; I'm used to your typical bryozoa, crinoid, and brachiopod - not this! The inner, u-shaped part looks biological, and is packed with a more clay-sourced material around it, and perhaps inside? I've taken numerous pictures to try to give a full look at this weird find. The outermost rock layer can flake off of picked. I'm not even 100% convinced it's a fossil, but i'm having trouble coming up with what in the world it could be. Please help me out!
  4. Frozen Ice Age Cave Bear Found

    Perfectly preserved Ice Age cave bear found in Arctic Russia
  5. Pleistocene or recent stuff?

    Dear TFF Members, I went yesterday for a fossil hunt in the sand pit I usually visit to hunt for Pleistocene stuff and I found several fossils, but some of them make me wonder if they are truly Ice Age or recent: First of all because of their size - the preservation of some of them was a huge surprise: For instance these: No only is the triangle shaped bone almost unscratched, but the two large ones are not hollow (which was normally the case): The other large bones have got a sort of white colour at the exposed edges - which is also something I have never seen before:
  6. Ice Age & erratics in Lathum

    Hey guys! This hunt was on more than a month ago, on the 18th of July, but I haven't had time to make a trip report till today. Better late than never! In late June I invited my good friend Tijn ( @Hunter0811) to come hunt with me at the Zandmotor, and then come to my place to see my whole collection, and we had a great time talking about all things fossil-related. That evening he told me about a new location he had discovered near his house in the east of the Netherlands which also had Ice Age mammal bones, and so we made plans to meet up again soon, but this time over there, so that we could check this new place out together. He picked me up at the train station and we biked to the place. The weather was nice, although maybe just a bit too warm, but sunny and good for fossil hunting. We had to cross a small field with cows to get to the place after parking our bikes, and they were curious to see what we were doing so they approached us to say hi. The site is near a village called Lathum. It's quite literally a big pile of rocks: gravel with lots of erratic stones, all dredged from the bottom of a nearby pond. The hunting there consists of just looking in between the stones.
  7. Any idea what this is?

    This fossil was found in pleistocene deposits in florida, and i’m thinking based on size that it’s either bison or horse, it is around 8.5 inches
  8. I found this Ice Age fossil in Peace River, Florida.... 1+ inch length of the base of deer antler. Photos show a side view and entire bottom 'button' base, where it was attached to skull. So I think this is a shed antler.
  9. Mammoth rib? Or something else?

    This caught my eye and I'm lacking ice age material. Before bidding, I thought it best to double check it is mammoth and not horse or bison or something. It is 35 inch along the curve. It was found in the North Sea by fishermen. If someone can take a look, that would be great. Thanks.
  10. Is this a fossilized skull?

    Hello. I got this fossil from a friend. I don't know where he got it or where it came from. About 5.08 centimeters and weighs 10 grams. It is the size of a rodent or baby. Is this a skull? If not, what type of bone is it? Thanks.
  11. Mammoth tooth

    A find from yesterday
  12. Vertebra

    Sloth vertebra im pretty sure
  13. Ice age tibia?

    I found this tibia(my girlfriend is an emergency vet and identified it as such, with a small amount of research I confirmed) half buried in the sand on a private beach adjacent to dash point in Washington on the shore of the southern end of Puget sound. My apologies I could not find a ruler with metric measurements. My main question is it seems small to be from a large mammal, but it does appear to be in great shape, so perhaps from a young animal. I’m I correct in assuming it’s an ice age mammal. I know there are tons of glacial deposits.
  14. Bones

    Do you guys mind or idwntify bones on this forum
  15. Hey everybody, as a newbie i'm a bit excited :-)... So i hope i'll can give you all the informations which are relevant. The object was found 3 days ago in the Stoltera nature reserve (54.176962, 12.005744). It stucked out from the cliff which was formed from glacial deposits. It is 8,5 cm/3,15 inch long, has a diameter of 2,3 cm/0,9 inch and weighs 92 grams. What could that be? Location Top 1 Top 2 Bottom Side view Thanks in advance for your answer! - Daniel
  16. Some recent Zandmotor finds

    Hey everyone! Hope everyone's doing alright during this stressful situation! I haven't been too active on TFF (or with fossils in general) the past few months (mostly due to school work), but with the whole virus situation I suddenly have some more free time. The Netherlands aren't currently under strict quarantine, but schools are closed, and we're firmly recommended to stay at home and forbidden to go out in groups of more than 3. But, luckily fossil hunting is still possible, so after a long winter hiatus I finally went back to the Zandmotor (last time was when I found that mammoth tooth in October!), not once, but twice (Tuesday 17th from 11 to 6, and Sunday 22nd from 2 to 4 about). Nothing very eventful happened during either of the trips, so I'm not gonna make a whole trip report, but just show you some nice location pictures and some of the most interesting or rarer finds. What I will however mention is that the beach has changed a lot since the last time I was there, especially when considering where certain dunes, elevated parts or shell banks were located. In fact, the change between Tuesday and Sunday was impressive too. Crazy what wind and erosion are capable of!
  17. 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

  19. 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
  20. 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??
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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!
