  7. Bird bones in flint- please help to confirm

    Dear Guys, I recently collected three examples of interesting small bones that have the cavities in the same area, I found them in flint erratics of South Lithuania. One scientist (Jens Koppka) told be that one time the occasional bird bone in flint was found by his colleagues in Lithuania. I recenly found the link with very similar shape of bone known as Enantiophoenix in the middle picture of one publication that I share with you now : https://peerj.com/articles/1032/ Open this link and look for "Comparison of scapulocoracoid between the dromaeosaurid Balaur and other paravians", the cavity in the second scapulocoracoid picture is named as "snf". Please look at my fossil pictures and this link and help with confirmation if you could. Best Regards Domas
  8. Please help with ID of fish scale and tetrapod bone

    Dear Guys, Today I found one interesting fish scale that is 3 mm length and small tetrapod bone (3,5 mm length in flintstone erratic. I think the fish scale is quite specific to assign it to one taxon but I have doubt if the bone is from shoulder or maybe pelvic girdle? Please comment if you can, any help will be appreciated! Best Regards Domas
  9. Electribius

    It weighs 0.2 grams. Measurement are of the stone. The lenght of insect is 1.2 mm.
  10. Possible dinosaur remains found in Lithuania

    Dear Guys, I recently found two remains (serrated tooth and scale) of possible small dinosaurs in the Late Cretaceous erratics of South Lithuania, Eastern Europe. The tooth is about 1,2 cm length, scale is 4 mm length. If the remains belong to dinosaurs, which dinosaur fossils it could be? Any opinions are very welcome Best Regards Domas
  11. Please help with several bones

    Dear Guys, I recently found some bones that are difficult to me to identify- possible mammoth rib proximal end, rhino zugoma and unidentified radius bone in Late Pleistocene sand layers of Varena Town, South Lithuania (it is Eastern Europe). The width of mammoth rib proximal end is 6,2 cm in the articular part, the bone layer in the cross section is massive. The length of possible rhino zygomatic bone is 5,6 cm and it has specific texture in the skull surface near eye. It is also massive and I see that thickness of bone is about 1,5 cm. The partial radius is 10,2 cm length and 3 cm width in the lower articular part. Any idea what this should be? Best Regards Domas
  12. Walrus tusk fragment?

    Dear Guys, Today I found very interesting and also simply looking tusk fragment in Varena town (South Lithuania) near my home. Its length is 8,3 cm and it has thick bone layer in the both ends. It is almost straight and by appearance of piece I see that it was long and sharp. The age of fossil is Late Pleistocene, the last glaciation times. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
  13. Please help with ID of fossil horse mandible

    Dear Guys, Yesterday I found quite an interesting fossil of horse, it is the lower mandible with three preserved teeth and its length is 19 cm. The measures of three teeth from left to right of the photos are: 1- 2,9 cm width, 2- 2,6 cm width, 3- 2,5 cm width. The fossil found in the forest where sandy Pleistocene layers are near surface, it is found in that layers. I think the genus of fossil is Equus but what about species? Is it only Equus sp. or E. hemionus, E. caballus, E. ferus ferus, other? I noticed that each specie has little or more different location of enamel layers, maybe it could be easier to identify by them? It is found near Varena town, south Lithuania (Baltic States, Eastern Europe). Any idea would be very helpful. Best Regards Domas
  14. Bison or Camel?

    Dear Guys, Today I found two premolars that are too sharp to Bison in my opinion, so I think they should belong to camel. They are found in Varena town, South Lithuania (it is Eastern Europe). The bigger tooth is 2,4 cm width, smaller is 1,9 cm width. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
  15. Carboniferous arthropods and vertebrates in marl

    Dear Guys, I noticed the very specific group of erratics that have some rare fossils like land arthropods, plants and vertebrates (sarcopterygian fishes, amphibians and reptile ancestors maybe). The fossils are collected in Varena town, South Lithuania. Talking about Carboniferous erratics, this is first findings of them in my area. Please help with ID or confirm fossils if you can At first, the arthropod remains. Best Regards Domas
  16. Please help me identify this bone

    Dear Guys, Yesterday I found one big calcaneus bone, I think it should be carnivore because the big joint is located in the side. It should not be an ungulate. It could be the most similar to cat or dog but I think dogs did not have so large calcaneus- my find is 10,5 cm length. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
  17. Wild ox or deer phalange?

    Dear Guys, I have found the first phalanx bone of artiodactyl in the same forest felling as two calcaneum bones similar to deer. The wild ox and big deer phalanges are very similar but it would be great to know which animal it is. The size of first phalange is 5,3 cm length so it should be small wild ox or big deer (e.g. Irish Elk). Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
  18. Megaloceros calcaneum bone? Please help with ID

    Dear Guys, I recently noticed the surprising similarity between two calcaneus bones I found in the same forest felling in South Lithuania. I think they belong to deers but the first in the picture is very big (8,3 cm length) and second is small (6,3 cm length). Is it possible that larger bone belong to Irish Elk? The latest fossils of this animal found in Siberia, they are 8000 years old. Best Regards Domas
  19. Possible mammoth phalange found

    Dear Guys, I have found one thick phalange but I cannot decide what animal it is. Very similar appearance have mammoth but also horse distal phalange. The width is 6 cm. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
  20. Felid atlas vertebra?? Please help with ID

    Dear Guys, I found this atlas vertebra 1 year ago in the Pleistocene sand area of Varena town, South Lithuania. By the attributes, I think this vertebra belong to felid. If it is felid, it should be bigger than cat or bobcat. The bigest diameter of it is 5,5 cm. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
  21. Antelope metapodial and calcaneum from Late Pleistocene

    Dear Guys, I have two possible bones of antelopes, they are very small to ungulates. I found these two bones in the Late Pleistocene sand layers of Varena town, South Lithuania. The calcaneum is only 4 cm length, metapodial- 10,5 cm length. The confirmation of these fossils would be very helpful to my further articles. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
  22. Please help with ID of thin tibia

    Dear Guys, I have found one very thin and long (15,5 cm length) tibia and in my opinion it should be too small to ungulate. The wider end has very oblong and thin cross section, I think it could belong to rabbit but I have doubt because the lower joint in rabbit tibias does not look very similar. Any idea which mammal bone is this? Best Regards Domas
  23. Strange mammal bone found

    Dear Guys, I have found one very specific bone fragment which is very hard to me to identify, it is from Late Pleistocene sand layers of Varena town, South Lithuania. The wider part of bone has very strange joint relief and I do not know which animal is this. Please help with ID of this fossil. Best Regards Domas
  24. Please help with ID of mammal claw

    Dear Guys, Yesterday I found small and sharp claw core which is 3,1 cm length, quite straight and have one dimple in the articular part. The age of bone is late Pleistocene because the sand around in Varena town (South Lithuania) appeared in the last glaciation. Any idea which mammal bone is this? Best Regards Domas
  25. Badger claw phalange? Please help with ID

    Dear Guys, Today I found very small (3,1 cm length) sharp bone, by me it should be phalange of claw and by the appearance I think it should be something like badger. The age is Late Pleistocene, it is from sand layers of South Lithuania. Any idea what is this? Best Regards Domas
