  1. Diprotodon Incisor

    @Jesuslover340 found this one on Monday. We jacketed it yesterday morning and I started prep last night. The exposed side is gone, but one side will display nicely still so that’s good. Going to finish it tonight. She got something even better than this nearby though, will be posting a thread on it soon I believe
  2. Peace River Incisor?

    Found this on my 2018 trip to Florida, I believe it is a rodent incisor and I would like to confirm that. And if it is, does anyone have any indication as to what variety it belongs to? It's about 2 cm long.
  3. Peace River Incisor

    Finally made it out to the Peace River this weekend. Tammy and I spent a day canoeing down the river on Friday checking some of our favorite spots between Brownville Park and Canoe Outpost in Arcadia to see if the river was low enough to guide a group of teen/pre-teen SCUBAnauts for a fossil hunting trip on Saturday. Though the river is still about a foot higher than I'd like it to be, the group got lucky when they planned this trip some six months ago. The river gauge at Arcadia is the lowest it's been this year and still dropping--though rain is expected for Tuesday so that could put a halt to the drop if it is a heavy rain. Kept a few items I would not otherwise have if I didn't need them for for a bit of fossil show-and-tell with the group before our trip on Saturday. Gave everything away but two items: a tiny laminid shark vertebra that is just a hair over 7 mm (I'm surprised it didn't pass through my 1/4" mesh sifting screen) and the other was my trip-maker as it is something of a mystery and a novel find for me. It appears to be a fully-rooted mammal incisor about 2" (52 mm) long and the crown is about 0.6" (15 mm) at its widest. When I pulled it from my sifting screen, my first thought was that it might be a camelid incisor. I've seen similar images online now that I'm back home with access to the internet. As this is something new for me, I'd love some confirmation. It would be great to hear from someone with more experience in finds similar to this like @Harry Pristis Cheers. -Ken
  4. Hello beloved forum. I could use help on a mammal incisor ID for a friend: they don't have any info on the location, other than that it is domestic to the States, unfortunately. I've ruled out Giant Beaver, and I assume it's not a baby mammoth tusk (there appears to be a slight 'bulge' in the middle). Any advice would be deeply appreciated. Please see pictures.
  5. Made it to NSR yesterday, managed a nice haul. Was a bit hazardous in the rain, but the isolation was nice. Wondering especially about the plate, but any knowledge dropped on me is always appreciated!
  6. Tooth ID

    Zdravo! Can anyone help me out with identifying this tooth? It's archaeological find btw ...I know only that this is incisor tooth but idk from which animal is it.It's pretty small.
  7. Rodent Incisor

    Lower incisor from the theridmoyid rodent Isoptychus. Collected from a thin lacustrine horizon in the Lower Hamstead Member of the Bouldnor Fm. at Bouldnor Cliff, an early Oligocene locality on the northwest coast of the Isle Of Wight, UK. Identified by mammal specialist Jerry hooker from the Natural History Museum.
  8. Does anyone have any idea what it is?

    Hi dears colleagues!! I found this jaw fragment with 3 teeth. appear to be incisive and the mandibular fragment includes part of the mandibular symphysis.Does anyone have any idea what it is? Regards
  9. Need help identifying this

    My son and I found this in Big Brook, NJ. That area has fossils from the Cretaceous and Pleistocene periods. Need help identifying what it is.
  10. Found this well-preserved tooth while digging about 18 inches into the creek bed in Hogtown Creek (Gainesville, FL). It appears to be an incisor tooth for a medium-sized animal. Not sure if it's a dog or a bear. Can anyone help identify? Thank you in advance! Sam
  11. Found this yesterday in Peace River. I think it's a fossil, but may be modern. Didn't know how long to wait to do flame test. I think it is an incisor but really just guessing. What do you think?
  12. Unknown Tooth?

    Hey all, Here is an incisor I pulled out of some early-Pleistocene material down in SC. I think it might be raccoon, but I am not sure. Any takers? Thanks! (Let me know if the pictures are way too small...) EDIT: See larger pictures in post below!
  13. I've been making progress in the bucket of micro-matrix that gathered from a spot on the Peace River back in May when I made my last sojourn to sift there this season. Looking through my 10x photographer's loupe with one eye while scanning the matrix was giving me a bad case of double vision if I gave into temptation and picked through more than a Solo cup full of micro-matrix. In attempt to find a technique easier on the eyes I purchased a 5MP digital microscope (basically a USB webcam with an adjustable magnifying lens). I found this too slow and cumbersome to use in my search for micro fossils but it does seem to be reasonably proficient in taking acceptable quality images of the finds. I was struck with a brilliant thought yesterday (and I'm afraid I've probably now used up my quota of these for 2014). Being an old gray-haired codger now my eyes seem resistant to focusing on anything close-up. It's not that my eyes are too bad to read restaurant menus but my arms seem to be too short. I do wear contact lenses to help me with my distance vision (and have for decades). I know that without my contacts in place that my close-up vision is actually pretty good after all. The epiphany yesterday was to simply tuck my contact lenses safely in their case and then use no magnifying optics at all to scan for micro fossils in my matrix. It turns out that with the aid of a good LED light that I can clearly spot and identify micros less than half a millimeter with the naked eye. This has greatly speeded-up the search through my micro-matrix and done away with the eye strain and double vision I was experiencing when searching under magnification. This evening while relaxing with a fine sipping rum I searched my way through a plastic Solo cup full of micro-matrix. In addition to the usual very tiny shark teeth and ray plates I came across something novel (and I love novelty). It appears that this micro fossil might be a curved incisor of something mouse-like in size (and construction). Though it is difficult to show in photographs, one end (root) shows a bit of a hollow concavity and the other seems to show a beveled (occlusal) surface. I tried to include a scale in the images but the shiny surface reflected the circle of LED lights in a very distracting way. The actual length of this incisor is about 9mm if that helps to narrow down who could have formerly owned this bit of dentition. I'm assuming something mouse-like but would be curious to hear if any on the Forum have any more detailed opinions. Two sides: Cheers. -Ken
  14. Incisor From Cetacean?

    Hello, this is not mine, I'm posting it in lieu of someone. I will try to get info on the location and formation. I'm not sure if it's an incisor from a cetacean or something like a bobcat or wolf. Thanks!
