  1. Hi, I thought I'd share some of my best finds from yesterday's trip to Hamstead. It was definitely one of the best trips I've had in terms of the sheer number and variety of fossils I picked up. Tide was going out slowly so had to spend a lot of time climbing over and through the fallen trees that litter the beach from the landslides, but it was definitely worth it. As usual fragments of Emys carapace were by far the most common find along with loads of worn pieces of crocodile scute and fish vertebrae. I also found quite a few of the nicer pieces that come out of the Bouldnor formation including a diplocynodon tooth, mammal teeth and bones (which seem to be quite common at the moment), 3 diplocynodon vertebrae, a large section of diplocynodon mandible, and the largest fragment of Trionychid carapace/plastron I've ever found! The coast is always very productive but the strong winds and rain we had here for much of last week seem to have exposed/brought in lots of new material. I'll attach images of the highlights from the trip below (will have to do it in multiple posts because of size limits). (Below) The best Emys fragments of the day, a large plastron piece, a neural plate, and a peripheral piece.
  2. Hi guys, On a auction website I bought a collection of small Dinosaur/ Mammal fossils from the Lance Formation in Wyoming. First photo: Have you any idea which teeth belong to what dinosaur or Mammal? And is the central left piece an crocodile scute? Second and third photo : Is it true, this could be an Ankylosaur scute? thank you very much!
  3. Hello everyone! I know I recently reported on my major bucket-lister fossil, a four-inch tooth from the shark Carcharocles angustidens. Well...I think I may have just knocked another one off the list. Let me first say that I have a very limited knowledge of ice age mammal material, but this does seem to resemble examples of Mastodon (Mammut americanum) that I've seen before, which would make it a first for me. South Carolina doesn't exactly have the reputation for mammal material that Florida and Texas have, so this is a particularly gratifying find. Im curious about the size and degree of wear on this tooth. Am I correct in assuming that this tooth belonged to a juvenile individual? If so, why so much wear to the feeding surface? This is the first mammal tooth that I've found at the location that the Oligocene-age marine fossils I post. How did this one small vestige of the Pleistocene end up among Oligocene-Miocene marine material? Here she is -
  4. Hi everyone, can anyone please help me identify these mammal jaws? Not sure what animal they're from, their age or even where they were found, but I've ruled out them being from a mammoth, smilodon or gigantopithecus! To me they don't look that old, possibly 10-20 thousand years. I bought them as part of a little collection, some of them I'll post up for help identifying at a later date. They entire collection cost the princely sum of £1.50, oh and the 20p entrance fee I paid to get into the *car boot sale where I found them. Thanks again for having a look, thinking and responding. * Car Boot Sales or Boot Fairs are a type of market where the general public come together to sell unwanted stuff from the boot of their cars. Household and garden, items, nic-nacks (chotchkies), anything and everything really. Usually they take place ridiculously early on a Sunday morning on muddy fields (because it's always raining here) in the countryside. Inevitably you always come home with loads of unexpected stuff, and every now and then some treasure, otherwise known as Booty Magic. Thanks Bobby
  5. Hi, Had a very wet and windy trip to Hamstead this morning and amongst the usual finds of crocodile, turtle, and fish I stumbled upon this large and fairly unworn piece of a mammal calcaneum (fairly unworn for hamstead) at the base of a mudslide on the foreshore. The cuboid is missing and so is the rest of the calcaneum but apart from that the articulatory processes are almost intact. It's somewhat larger than the calcaneum I found a few weeks back (posted up on here), which was later identified as anthracothere by my local museum (so most likely Bothriodon), the articulatory process is also at a different angle. The mudslide was from the Bembridge Marls which is pre-grand coupre and dates to roughly the Eocene - Oligocene boundary but I'm unsure as to whether it is from there, possibly explaining why it's less worn than usual, or was washed into the mudslide by the sea. I'll attach pictures below in multiple posts because of size limits, including a comparison with the smaller anthracothere (The unidentified calcaneum is on the right)
  6. 1/2 cm long mammal tooth found in some material from a creek in East central Mississippi. This creek produces a ton of vertebrate material from sharks, crocs, dugong etc...and some land mammals. Crazy small tooth, any thoughts?
  7. Mam mnóstwo znalezisk z tego obszaru. Powiem więcej zdjęć w sekcji odpowiedzi. 1. 2. 3.
  8. Sorry for the barrage of Hell Creek posts, I finally have time to go through some of my summer collections. I am having a hard time with this mammal tooth (Hell Creek Formation, Late-Cretaceous, South Dakota). The occlusal surface is heavily worn. I was thinking perhaps Cimolodon? or Mesodma? Any help / suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Scale bar = 1 mm
  9. Hi everyone. Would love some help identifying this mammal tooth I found today in creek of Peace River, Florida. The crown is 2cm across and 1.5cm wide. Attached is a composite photo. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Unfortunately, I did not find this fossil. My hunting buddy did!. Right now I have just this photo. Making the assumption that this is going to be Bear or Jaguar. Would like the Identification help all understand how to differentiate, The tip has been broken, most likely pre-mortem. Thanks Jack
  11. Hello all, I already posted this topic in Paleo Re-creations, but nobody answered there. I want to make a composite skeleton from an extinct animal, but I don't know witch species I take best. I already tought about Oreodont, cave bear, bison... Do you guys know an animal whose it is possible to collect all the bones (skull is not necassary, but I would love a real skull) Keichousaur is not a good example, because I want have the fun for searching, buying and making a composite. It think mammals are the only option, because reptiles are expensive and difficult to collect all the bones, maybe alligator is possible? What do you guys think about it? Greetings
  12. Does anyone know when Bison died out in Iowa? I myself have a single vertebrae and the front lower left half of a buffalo jaw with 2 teeth in it. I think it must be any wear from 500-to a couple thousand years as it is dark brown in color. 16 - 1.webp
  13. I took a break from the New Jersey Cretaceous and went to Calvert Cliffs, MD on Saturday and Sunday. I found these two items I would like a little more information on. The first one I was told is probably wither dolphin or whale (Squalodon?). The second is piece of bone and I was hoping the odd shape of it could lead to more information on it. Thanks! -Frank
  14. Hi, I was wondering if anyone would be able to help in identifying a few mammal teeth I've picked up at Hamstead during my last two trips there. There's four teeth in total (all found separately not in association with each other), the 3 larger teeth appeared to me to be 2 possible canines and an incisor. My initial ideas for ID of the larger teeth were Bothriodon as it is the most common mammal species from the Bouldnor Fm. and the incisor shows signs of being worn on the incisal edge suggesting it could be a herbivore? but I'm not sure. As for the smaller tooth I'm completely at a loss. It's considerably smaller than the other 3 and looks like a premolar but as for potential ID I'm stumped aha! I'll attach pictures below. I'd be really grateful for any help.

  16. Hi there. I got a large lot of teeth from Morocco today. They were mostly shark, but with quite a large number of mosasaur teeth, some ray plates, crocodile teeth, bone material etc. There are several pieces I couldn't identify, but this is the most puzzling one of the lot. It's obviously (to a layperson like me, and keeping in mind that I don't have a clue) a mammalian tooth. As such, it can't be contemporary to the other material. However, it does have lots of matrix jammed into the top of the tooth, which is solid rock and not just sand. It's indistinguishable from the typical phosphate bed matrix, to my eyes. My guess would still be that it's fairly modern, but does anybody have any ideas please? Thanks in advance.
  17. From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A big piece of a limb bone of a large mammal (mammoth, woolly rhino, bison), found on the Zandmotor. Probably not more identifiable than this.
  18. From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A piece of mammal rib found on the Zandmotor. Unidentified, and probably unidentifiable, but it's from a medium-sized mammal (hyena, wild boar, small deer???).
  19. Hello: I found this in aurora. It looks like a small piece of a skull. I realize this is a long shot, but any info is helpful. Thank you, David
  20. A good friend of mine sent me these pics of a mystery tooth from Morocco that he acquired. It looks like mammal to me but I'm not a tooth guy so I said I'd post them here and mine the hive mind of TFF.
  21. Some more bones from the Arkansas river near Arkansas city kansas. Right one is an ankle bone to a bison if I'm right. The other three no idea
  22. Another Arkansas river find a large hunk of bone
  23. Another Arkansas river find a bone I can not identify. Any help would me great. Thanks. Found in Arkansas city kansas on the river.
  24. Found a lot of stuff on the Arkansas River today. I found a small tooth as well as everything in posting. Thought it was from a deer but all the pics don't look exactly like it.
  25. Another Arkansas river find a large hunk of antler and some small bones. From what I can tell they are not fully fossilized since the antler is soft on the break up top. The small bones are what I'm wondering about.
