  1. Hi! I'm new here! I need some help to ID some fossils I've found a couple of days ago. Thanks!!!
  2. Hi, Haven't been on here for a while as I've been quite busy lately but I managed to get out collecting yesterday at my usual spot along the coast at Hamstead. Whilst I was collecting I came across this fragment of a fossil molar washed up on the beach. From the look of it I'd tentatively say that it's from the Pleistocene gravels (which can be found along most of the cliff tops and offshore), however a lot of the Eocene/Oligocene material can also appear to be quite young and in good condition. To me it resembles a fragment of rhinoceros or elephant tooth, but at the same time it also looks similar to Paleotherium molars I have seen, whose remains have been found in the tertiary clays here. The enamel has been worn down to the dentine and the growth pattern can also be seen in the enamel. Any opinions or help as to what it could be would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Hi fossil collectors, now I finding nice mammal skull or bone fossils. I interested in oreodont, mammoth, deer, rhino...all kinds of mammal fossils. If you have extra mammal fossils for trade, please PM to me. Thanks. Cheney416
  4. Can't quite tell what kind of "dog" tooth this belongs to. I went for a trip on the Peace River and found a lot of mammal bits, but this is one that's still giving me trouble to ID. Would love to hear any thoughts. Thanks!
  5. Don't yet know my mammal podials. Found this beauty in the Peace River in Florida last Friday. Anyone know what it is?
  6. Hi all, Had a very successful hunt at the Zandmotor yesterday (will post a trip report soon), where I namely found this jewel: a very big nearly complete mammal tooth! Looks a lot like a molar. But I have no idea of what animal it came from... Anyone have a clue? Found on the Zandmotor, NL; Pleistocene in age. Happy Easter everyone! Max
  7. Easter is almost here. What is a better way to Celebrate a day all about a Giant humanoid Bunny that lays eggs? Well It would be to Tell you all about the Nuralaqus rex, A species of ancient Rabbit related to the European Rabbit, It lived around 4 million years ago in the Pliocene era on the island of Minorca of the coast off Spain. Its ancestors arrived to the island 5 million years ago when it was attached to the mainland but the sea soon separated it leaving the island to the rabbit which evolved larger and slower as this island was devoid of predators. The Rabbit grew to be 23 kg (61 Ib) in weight. Twice as big as the largest breed of rabbit today. They lived mostly on roots and tubers on the island which was a Scrub land habitat. The animal, which lived about three to five million years ago, had several "odd" features that have never before been seen in rabbits, living or extinct, according to the study. For one, the giant rabbit's "short and stiff" vertebral column meant it couldn't bunny hop. And the relatively small sizes of sense-related areas of its skull suggested that the animal had small eyes and stubby ears. Happy Easter! ------------ Links
  8. For a University project I am working on a sample of Rheatian Bone Bed collected from Lavernock, South Wales, UK. During the separation process I found a different looking tooth to the common bony fish teeth and sharks teeth, but I'm not sure what it is. I think it looks like a mammal molar? Is there anyone with any experience around this topic that could offer some insight? I have attached two images the specimen, thanks.
  9. Here's a good sized chunk of a vert from the Brazos River. Just wondering if there's anything diagnostic here.
  10. Given to me by a friend in Iowa and prepped further by myself
  11. Any ideas for what this jaw belongs to? Pleistocene river gravel from the Brazos in SE Texas. The teeth are either very worn, or the crowns have broken off. Thanks!
  12. I picked up these white river formation teeth in bucket labelled rhino. I doubt that label. One is partial tooth and the other is a jaw section.
  13. I recently purchased a few mammal teeth that seemed odd or rare. But since I am a dinosaur expert I don't really now much about them. Just looking for help on what they are, and if the labels given are accurate. Tooth #1, after some research I realize the age is off a bit, probably closer to 2.5-5MYA based on newer research of the Quiburis. 0.5" tall and 0.5" wide Tooth #2 same formation, probably camel? 1.25" long. Tooth #3, from Indonesia claims to be a Hippo molar. 1" tall, 1.5" wide. Pretty cool tooth. Location known, formation not known.
  14. 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.
  15. 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!
  16. 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 -
  17. 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
  18. 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)
  19. 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?
  20. Mam mnóstwo znalezisk z tego obszaru. Powiem więcej zdjęć w sekcji odpowiedzi. 1. 2. 3.
  21. 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
  22. 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.
  23. 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
  24. 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
  25. 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
