  1. Hello, I found this worn bone fragment in SW Florida and it has some distinct marks, separating it from my typical tumbled bone. It's approximately 2 1/2" x 1". It has 2 raised areas on one side and what appears to be a worn down tooth surface on the tip or enamel?? Hopefully these marks will be enough to ID. Thanks guys & Gals!
  2. lance formation teeth

    I found these two going through some Lance formation (late cretaceous) matrix from Wyoming. The first (2 views) is a mammal tooth 1.9mm long and I am just showing it because I am proud of it. The 2nd, 4 views, looks like a mammal molar on one side (the side with the wavy lines similar to a rodent molar), but not necessarily on the other sides. I arbitrarily named two sides top and bottom but they may not be that. Any idea what the 2nd fossil is? The hash marks are 1mm. Thanks.
  3. Guys (and Girls), I know I have seen a specimen similar to this one somewhere but cant remember where... Can you guys take a look? Thanks Alex
  4. I was shark tooth hunting and found this fragment on Casey Key, Florida 9 years ago. I recently went through my stuff and found 3 pieces of Mastodon Tooth Enamel. So I'm not sure if it's too small to ID but has a interesting wood grain pattern with enamel on the top. Can you ID it? Thanks FF!
  5. Florida Mammal vertebrae

    I took flyer on this vertebrae because it was inexpensive. The only location information I have is that it was found in Florida. It is 1.64 inches long. Anybody have any idea what it might be from?
  6. Basilosauridae partial vertebrae

    From the album Marine reptiles and mammals

    Side view of vertebra, displaying missing piece see 1st picture for information

  8. Is this a bone?

    Is this a bone? Of which animal? It's a little heavy, weighing 40 grams. The maximum length is 70 millimeters; the thinnest section is 15x30mm. Maybe not a fossil, but I am curious. Found it in Algarve, Portugal (miocene, I guess). I would also ask you to please advise me how to preserve it. Shall I varnish it? Thank you.
  9. My little collection

    I finally got a nice bookcase to display my collection that has grown over the years. The only problem is that it is already full. Just wanted to share with you guys and see what you all think
  10. Big Brook mammal jaw with teeth in it

    I had a great day today sifting with my mom. We started at Ramanessin but the finds were far and few between so we switched to big brook. I found this in one of my last sifter fulls. It was sitting right on top after I sifted the sand out. I was wondering if this is most like Pleistocene or more modern and what kind of animal it might be. Thanks!
  11. Found in South Manatee County in an aggregate pit. Thank you!
  12. Seal tooth

    So a while back, like a year and half or two years, I found one of our more prized fossils in a creek. I had no clue what it was - I mean I knew it was a mammal, but it certainly wasn't a dolphin or anything like that. Later at a PPS meeting, Bobby and Sarah ID'd it as a true seal, p1 premolar. I later decided to showcase it by doing a painting and mounting it along with a drawing of the dentition to show where it goes. Such a great tooth and I've not found any more since. *note: the painting is of a modern day gray seal - it was the closest in dentition that I could find
  13. Green Mill Run NC Land mammal tooth?

    I made a trip over to Green Mill Run in NC this past weekend to look for fossils in the creek. My son and I had a wonderful time and found some great sharks teeth and other stuff. I'm stuck though on trying to identify this tooth. It does not look like any of the other teeth that I have found in the creek. Could it be a land mammal tooth? Thanks in advance for any ideas that you may have.
  14. Ground Sloth Toe Bone?

    So I found these fossil toe (possibly hand) bones at an antique store, they're allegedly the toe bones from a ground sloth, unfortunately there is no location for these specimens, while my instinct tells me they're from around the area; Florida, with no documentation I'm not sure. They were very lowly priced so even if they can't be ID'd I figured I might as well buy them, any ideas? Specimen 1 Specimen 2 (Note the blue mark was just an eraser shaving, my bad!)
  15. ID of Bone from China

    This bone measures 32cm in length. It is from Chinabut the locality is not known. It seems to be a leg bone. Any idea if it belongs to mammal or dinosaur?
  16. Multituberculate tooth?

    I found this little guy sorting through some Aguja formation, late Cretaceous, matrix. It looks like a Multituberculate mammal molar on part of the jaw to me. I have shown several sides, including a cross section when the tooth broke in two as I was photographing it. Aghhh! Fortunately, I glued it back together pretty well. What do you think? The hash marks are 1mm.
  17. Shark hill IDs

    Hi can I get some IDs please. Thank you I started a post in member collecting so I have posted here with a link. Thank you
  18. I'm pretty sure this is an ancient bison tooth but I'm not totally sure. Welcome to insights.... maybe it's nothing ancient at all! .... this is the land of meth heads.. a tooth probably fell out hahahahaha (I joke a lot)
  19. Ereotherium caudal??

    This is a vertebra that I found on a gravel bar last month on the south Brazos. It is large but has a small neural opening, and I wonder if it is from near the end of the tail. Someone have a clue? It does look like a megatherium caudal that I found in a paper, but that photo is poor.
  20. Please ID this bone

    I found this on the beach in Eastern Maine. I was wondering if anyone could identify it. I thought it might be a spinous vertebrae of a large mammal. Thank you!
  21. fossils for internship

    Hey, guys, the next one is what appears to be a part of a humorous bone. Length is 5&1/4 inches width at the joint is three inches plus what do I need to do if a fossil is broken in half? How do I upload more pictures to this because I have some better quality picture from all angles but, it says the picture is using too many gigabytes when it clearly says a that specific picture is only 955 kilobytes.
  22. Bone Fossil SW Montana

    I recently found this specimen near a river in SW Montana. It was partially buried in an area that was know to be a popular area for Native Americans to hunt/camp. It looks to be the bulbus end of a bone or epicondyle, but I am no expert. A smooth gray inner layer is surrounded by a brown porous outer layer that is smooth in spots but rough & eroded in others. It could be just a strange rock formation, but it was found in an area that had mostly old river rock and this stood out like a sore thumb. Its location also made it a very odd find. Anyone have any insights? Thanks!
  23. Mammal or Avian fossil?

    Hello, I was out near central alberta the other day and I found two different specimens (I'll post the other one in a different thread). I doubt you'll be able to tell me what animal it came from but I was hoping the type of bone could be identified? Its heavy- so I'm pretty sure its fossilized. Its dark brown in color (pictures dont show this) and it appears to be hollow or possibly the marrow has fallen out but the inside looks quite smooth.
  24. Pleistocene bones, UK

    Found these bone fragments at Stutton Ness in the U.K. a few of days ago. They were right at the base of the Pleistocene ‘cliff’ deposits and have orange staining like the matrix in the cliffs. I’ve read that these deposits are 210,000 year old interglacial. Apparently lion, straight-tusked elephant, horse, giant deer and bison have been found here in the past. I have no experience of these type of finds and wondered if anyone had any thoughts on what species they may be or is that impossible with these small fragments? Also, should I try to conserve them, paraloid maybe? Thanks in advance for any help. P.s. I know the two white bones on the left are modern
