Found 488 results

  1. I need some help with some I.D.'s. These were both found in some matrix I collected recently in Craven County N.C. The exposure is Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, ?Comfort member. The site produces a few shark and fish teeth, crab claws, echinoids and starfish ossicles. It is a limestone / bryozoan hash. It is possible of course that this stuff is recent or even possibly Pleistocene as I have found pieces of mastodon teeth very close by. First is a small mammal tooth, 4mm long by 2.2 mm wide. Next is a small jaw piece with teeth. I first thought fish, then was thinking lizard. But I really have no idea. The entire section is 10.6 mm long. the teeth are very very small.
  2. Various Vertebrae

    These we found in the same section of a river, but I don’t know what types of animal or animals they belong to. The center and right vertebrae seem as if they fit together, the left one resembles a large fish possibly. I Appreciate any and all help with identification. Thanks!
  3. Iowa River Fossil Finds

    Some of my collection...
  4. Iowa River find 2 unsure

    This is one I’m not really sure about this vertebra, or this leg bone?... both are very heavy for their size!
  5. Iowa river finds

    To me this skull looks canine, but not quite sure. Please have a look and let me know what you think?
  6. Mammal Tooth from Calvert Cliffs

    I found the tooth below on a beach along the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene exposure) in Maryland this morning. Any idea what it came from? It looks like some kind of mammal tooth to me though it's missing the root. I'm not sure whether it's a fossil or modern. Thanks!
  7. Unknown Humerus

    I found this distal end of a mammalian humerus several weeks ago on the Brazos River southwest of Houston. After hours of searching, it doesn't seem to exactly match any of the common suspects: deer, camel, horse, or bison. Deer or camel is more likely than horse or bison, as the bone is relatively slender and the end of it isn't as bulky as either of those animals. It is possible that I have incorrectly ruled out deer and camels as the trochlea and capitulum on the end are very worn down. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm more than willing to hear them. Thanks!
  8. Need ID help on 2 similar teeth

    I thought the one on the right looked like some Merychippus I saw but have no idea on the other one. Nebraska Miocene.
  9. Hi, I'm hoping to go to Happisburgh and East Runton beaches in the hopes of finding mammal bones and teeth (apparently most would be fragmentary). Are there any tips you could share for when looking for these? Many thanks.
  10. Can’t find a match for this mammal tooth

    This tooth looks a little different than the rest of my cow/bison teeth. I can’t seem to find anything with that slight fan shape and double stylid.
  11. Long time since I have been here. Glad to be back and hunting again. I am stumped on a recent find and would be grateful for assistance. I believe it is a sacrum but cannot ID the animal. It’s size is is much larger than bovine. It is structurally developed for a larger animal. I was considering early horse but the number of fused vertebrae is off. Was found south of Houston on the Brazos River.
  12. Tusk?

    Just wondering if this was the end piece of a tusk and from what if so or is it just a normal tooth?
  13. Florida fossil ID

    This fossil was found in Florida on private property and I am unable to get a good ID on the specimen due to the bone not having the ends still in tact. All i know is that it’s Pleistocene in age and is from Florida
  14. Two small bones found together

    These bones were found a few feet apart from each other falling out of an eroding bank.
  15. Hopefully enough tooth left here for an ID

    North Central Nebraska. Miocene thanks for looking.
  16. Chunk of bone from a very large mammal.

    Found in north central Nebraska. Miocene. Probably not enough there to get an exact ID but I thought I’d give it a shot.
  17. Curved bone

    Found this small curved bone. Was real curious to what if belonged to. I know someone has an idea. I found it in Venice Florida. Thank you very much
  18. Another tooth ID please

    Found in north central Nebraska. Miocene @jpc @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker
  19. Mammal tooth ID please

    Another new one for me. Found in cherry county Nebraska.
  20. ID needed for mammal bone South Dakota

    I have no idea what bone this is or what critter it came from. Very fossilized. Found in south central SD.
  21. Bone found, odd shape and color

    Found in south central SD.
  22. A Chinese tooth

    Hi everyone, I just received this tooth, it is clearly an upper carnassial of a carnivore, it should come from Gansu, China. Can anyone help me with the identification? Based on it's appearance and what the seller said to me I think it's from the huge mustelid Eomellivora
  23. Herbivore teeth ID.

    Found these teeth with a bunch of other items on a lake beach today. Anybody know what they could be? I have some modern sheep, horse and cow teeth. None of them compare, I do not have full sets of teeth to compare either. These ones are much harder and wiegh much more than the ones I have. Any ideas?
  24. Texas City Dike Bison Tooth?

    One of the only fossils I managed to find at the Texas City dike this weekend, which is well-known as a site for Pleistocene fossils from the Beaumont Clay formation that are pulled to the surface during dredging operations in the nearby shipping channel. I know this tooth isn't Equus, so maybe bison? Any help would be appreciated!
