  1. Canid Tooth

    I found this tooth while looking for fossil crabs in Galveston this week. It is 5/8’’ across. Looks to be from a canid of some sort but not sure what. Looks large for a coyote.
  2. We went beachcombing at McFaddin Beach near Sabine Pass, Texas yesterday and found some interesting bones as well as a mammal tooth yesterday. I am aware that most of these are likely not fossils but I was still wondering if someone can still tell me what they are.
  3. Mammal tooth id

    Hi guys, I found this mammal tooth a while ago at the Zandmotor near Den Haag in the Netherlands. You can find there fossils from the Quaternary period. The tooth is about 2 cm long and the crown is quite damaged. Looks a bit like a very small woolly rhino tooth but I am really not sure. Can anybody help me? Maybe @Harry Pristis or @LordTrilobite ? Here is the tooth:
  4. Need help with mammal tooth

    My family are new to fossils and have been combing the beaches of Myrtle Beach. I have a few things that we found that I'm not sure of what it may be. I know this is some sort of mammal tooth but can anyone help me on identification?
  5. NSR fossil ID

    Found some fossils from North Sulphur River in Texas. They are pretty beat-up. Any idea what they are? 1-1 Mosasaurus bone? It doesn't look like vertebra to me..... 1-2 back view 1-3 top view 1-4 bottom view 2-1 some kind mammal tooth? 3-1 sawfish tooth? few other teeth, bone and vertebrates from the trip
  6. I found this tooth at North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina last week and I have no idea what species to which it belongs. Any help would be appreciated in figuring out what it is. Thanks!
  7. Mammal tooth of some sort

    I would appreciate any help with an id for the tooth I found while on a peace river dig. I haven’t been able to find anything that looks close and thought someone at sometime might have come across something similar. Thanks in advance,
  8. Hypslodont mammal tooth

    First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR! Went on a hunt at brownies beach (Miocene, Calvert FM, zone 4?) and it is official, the bay has iced on its shores, that’s the end of winter hunting season I guess. No idea how many epic teeth I must’ve missed because of it. Super cold Because of this finds were limited, top three finds include symphyseal hemi (tiny) and half a shark vert. The third? This Mammal tooth, I’m guessing small rodent? Sorry for bad pictures, I’ll try for better ones tomorrow. Can’t find my ruler, but this things tiny, around 1 cm.
  9. 2 main holes I hit were pretty hit or miss, but overall I'll count it as a W. 1st spot not much ocassional small teeth, biggish bull shark tooth, moved further down. Found a partial meg (complete one still eludes me but can't think of greater motivation to move tons of gravel), small mammal molar (that seems to be from a small bear) & what I think is a manatee molar (low left on full pic) + a nice big horse molar. Disheartened a bit I hadn't found any super great snaggles (my fav) but before I left I found this beaut Nice day, no shortage of friendly doggos on the river, yeah. Not bad for not having a 'yak, which I guess is a curse & a blessing in a way Full haul below
  10. Mammal Tooth for ID

    I picked up this tooth from Bouldnor Beach on the Isle of Wight in the UK a couple of years ago. It is from the Bouldnor Formation and is earliest Oligocene, about 33 million years old. I'm confident it comes from a mammal of some kind, a rooted canine but that's as far as i've got. To provide some context the site has produced a number of pig-like anthracotheres (the most common mammals), carnivores like Hyaenodon, entelodonts, early primates like Leptadapis, the rhino-like Ronzotherium, deer-like forms and various others. Can any of the mammal people offer their thoughts? @Harry Pristis? Unfortunately the crown is almost completely worn away which i know is a huge detriment to identification. It measures 3.8 cm long, but of course would have been longer with the crown intact.
  11. Hi All, I'm presenting another mammal tooth I found diving the Cooper River in South Carolina. You'll notice only a small percentage of the tooth is covered with beautiful brown enamel (or is it cementum?). When I found the tooth, it had complete 100% coverage. I had no idea it was so fragile. I dropped it into my goody bag, and unfortunetly (?) I was having a good dive and had picked up quite a few other fossils including some big megs. By the time I surfaced and emptied my bag, most of that beautiful brown enamel (?) was nothing but a big pile of flakes in the bottom of the bag. It's a real bummer. It was in very pristine condition when I picked it up. It must of been a very recent erosion, because otherwise the river would've stripped the tooth itself. Anyway, I'm not sure what it is...
  12. Pleistocene Texas Mammal Tooth Help

    Any ideas? Appreciate any help. Found in North Central Texas. thank you.
  13. SC River Mammal Tooth

    Hi All, Another Mammal tooth found river diving in South Carolina, and I'm not sure what it is:
  14. Cooper River SC Mammal Tooth

    Hi All, I'm currently on a dive trip to the Cooper River in SC. I found this tooth the other day. The guys I'm diving with believe it to be a horse incisor. To me, it seems too straight to be horse.
  15. I did a little sorting through my collection of fossils from the Peace River last week. I don't get to go out there as often as some who live much closer (especially those who are retired and can go out as many times a week as their ibuprofen-laced bodies will let them). I have had enough trips of the years to have accumulated a few oddities here and there. I don't remember ever photographing and asking an opinion on an interesting little mammal tooth in my collection that is quite distinctive from my other finds. The occlusal surface is approximately 7 x 17 mm and the length of the roots are around 11 mm. It's a little beat-up from the river and well used and worn but I'm hoping it will ring a bell for the experts here. Cheers. -Ken
  16. (Canid?) Mammal Tooth ID - Late Miocene

    Hello Everyone, I was curious about a beautiful small tooth that popped into my sifter near Summerville , SC. My assumption is from the Late Miocene ? Hawthorne Formation. I'm not very versed in mammal teeth quite yet. Is this a canid ... small fox, or wolf ? ... premolar ? These images are scans of the tooth. I have been scanning any information and images that I can find but it looks too small for a wolf and doesn't have the right chewing surfaces. Thanks of course in advance. @Harry Pristis ... maybe you have an idea, I know you are well versed in this area. Cheers, Brett
  17. Well I've been wanting to get out to Mayport! So, today was the day. I conducted a 4 hour survey of the north end of the Mayport Beach. Location was between these four map points 30.395161,-81.392922; 30.394876,-81392020; 30.397217,-81390612; and 30.396939,-81.392701. Low tide was at 0721. I start my search at 0800, looking through the shell spoil. The spoil seem to run the entire distance of the beach decreasing as one heads north towards the jetties. I spent the first two hours going through the spoil (DRY) approximately 28000 square meters. I took a break to wait for the tide to start the wash of the spoil (WET) during which I focused on the leading edge of the spoil pacing back and forth -- about a 150 meter run. I would not say it was the best hunting ground but i feel further investigation is in order. During my next trip I will survey the next sector heading south. I did have two great non-shark finds today. A 1.0 Diameter X 1.25W X .625H vertebrae and 1.0W X 1.5H X .375 Thick mammal tooth (I think). My Findings: Lower Density than Ponte Vedra Beach. Larger teeth than JAX Beach. More tooth damage. High level of oyster shell in the area.
  18. Unknown Tooth Found In Sc

    Can anyone help me ID this tooth? The base looks like a mammal but I really don't know. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
  19. Both of these fossils came from the Brazos river. I believe that the "tooth" may be a mammaoth based off of this image http://www5.esc13.net/ctrc/images/paleo_mammoth_teeth_lg.JPG Now the tooth is broken in half and I was wondering if there is anyway to "glue" it back together? Now the other fossil is some sort of "horn." Now I don't find it impossible that it could be part of a tusk, but I don't know very much on ancient mammals.
