  1. Proboscidea incisor

    Hi all, I wanted to know if Proboscidea incisor is just another name for tusk... I’m considering putting in a bid on everyone’s favorite auction site, but I wanted to make sure it’s tusk.
  2. Happisburgh and East Runton

    Hi, not too long ago I went to East Runton and Happisburgh in the hopes of finding some fossils, whilst the best time to go is winter, I was happy going in Summer. Apparently, fragmentary Mammoth molars are found commonly at Happisburgh during winter months. I found possibly two bits of mammal bones, possible fossils shells (one was in the clay cliff) and an orange belemnite. Is it possible to identify the bits of bone, or are they too small? Possible fossil shells Possible bits of bone. The top bit split when I picked it up, unfortunately the split bit then split, so that's just drying now after being glued. Orange belemnite
  3. Tusk Stabilization

    This is a tusk I recovered from a river sand bar in Iowa 24 hours ago. The tusk was in somewhat damp sand. It started to degrade right away once it was unearthed. I wrapped the tusk in a towel but it did dry out a bit. I got it home about 5 hours later and re-wrapped it in damp towels. I am writing this post to spell out my plan based only on reading some other posts but not based on any experience. I would appreciate any advise. What am I missing or doing wrong? -Add many zip ties to hold tusk together. Leave crusted-on sand for now. -Wrap with damp towels and wrap that with plastic trash bags, NOT completely airtight. -Store in dry basement for several months to gradually dry out. -After drying period, carefully clean and "baste" with paraloid b-72 50:1 -Use more concentrated paraloid b-72 to glue loose parts. Lots of small crumbled pieces to deal with somehow. -Cure for several days and then fill voids with PaleoSculp (or equal) a little bit at a time. -Sand and buff -Make a stand and show off! Thank you for looking!
  4. 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.
  5. My 9 year old daughter’s collection had outgrown the old shelves so we took a trip to Ikea today to get something more suitable. Though I don’t think it’ll be long before this one is full too... From top to bottom; ‘Ice Age’ A mammoth tooth, couple of mammoth ribs and a few other bits Purchases A few things we’ve bought, including some fish, a nice display of pecten and a few teeth (plesiosaur, mosasaur, spino) North Yorkshire finds The best of our finds on the coast (excluding ammonites) including a lot of belemnites, bivalves and a couple of ichthyosaur verts Other purchases A potamon and a pea crab, a few trilobites and other bits and pieces Ammonites Nearly all found ourselves on the coast but a couple of purchases too. Local river finds Some rugose coral, crinoids, stigmaria and a few brachiopods Hoping to add plenty of interesting new fossils with a week on the Jurassic Coast in August
  6. Proboscidea tooth

    A first for me and the most beautiful tooth I’ve ever found! Pretty excited about this one. Obviously not an expert here but I think I’ve got it narrowed down to juvenile mastodon. Hopefully I can get a positive ID from the experts! Miocene, south central SD.
  7. Mammoth rib? Or something else?

    This caught my eye and I'm lacking ice age material. Before bidding, I thought it best to double check it is mammoth and not horse or bison or something. It is 35 inch along the curve. It was found in the North Sea by fishermen. If someone can take a look, that would be great. Thanks.
  8. Mammoth/Mastodon Toe Bone?

    Found on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston. When I first picked this up, judging by the extreme river damage it had suffered being tossed around in the water for so many years, I simply assumed it was just another unidentifiable piece of Pleistocene bone to get thrown in the box with the others back at home. But since I've been going through the galleries of some of the members here to help identify the other bones I collected, this one seems to bear a resemblance to a mammoth metacarpal. Maybe the smallest one, although the damage on several spots is significant - the outer bony surface on one side has been completely removed. Am I just crazy, or is this thing the real deal? Any help on an ID is appreciated!
  9. Mammoth/mastodon? Ivory???

    Hi all, I found this in Polk county Florida on the peace river, and was wondering if it is ivory or part of a tooth? TIA
  10. Unknown Florida mammal tooth

    Hi all, I received a jar of fossils from my grandfather a couple years ago before he passed away, and was wondering what type of tooth it was. Most of the stuff in the jar is from Florida but I’m not positive everything is. It is 2 1/4 inches long. my guess is it’s either a mammoth or horse tooth.
  11. Florida (Central) - River Finds

    Hi everyone, I have here some fossils, mostly teeth, from a river in Central Florida. I'm pretty sure I know what some of these are, and if anyone could confirm or correct me I'd appreciate it! I know the first one is a Megalodon fragment. The second one could be a great white. I'm less sure about the last one. My question here relates to the 9 shark teeth to the top right. I think the second is a Mako and the third is a Tiger, but ultimately not sure on any. Prehistoric crocodile/alligator tooth? It looks like a crocodile or alligator femur to me There's one I have no clue about Based on my knowledge, deer tooth? Manatee molar? I'm not sure about these. I wanted to say mammoth or mastadon tusk fragments, but I don't know if such fragments can be identified. This is more of a general question. Is there any way to wager a guess as to what these random fragments could be? Would it include turtle shells, marine mammal bones, and so on? Thank you!
  12. Mastodon tooth fragment

    Hi, i was looking through bone fragments from my Florida in February, and found this in them. I’m wondering what it is? It’s 1 3/4 inches and from Polk county.
  13. Mammoth tooth

    A find from yesterday
  14. Brazos River Mammoth Tooth Fragment?

    Another find today from the Brazos River just southwest of Houston. The grooves on top of this piece look very similar to pictures of mammoth teeth that I have seen before, but it is obviously far too small to be a full tooth or even half of one. Is it just a fragment? And is it even really a mammoth tooth? If it's a pseudofossil after all, it's a darn convincing one. It's definitely mineralized and has a crystal-like sheen with slight sparkles here and there when it catches the light. Any help on an ID would be great!
  15. Mammoth or Mastodon?

    I am assuming this is a mammoth or mastodon vertebra. It is well mineralized weighing just over five pounds. I purchased it from an artifact collector in Nebraska but have no idea if it was found in that state. If mammoth or mastodon is it possible to tell which elephant species it belongs to?
  16. So ive been walking caspersons beach at night quite a lot and last week i really got the hang of what days and times are best to go looking based on tides. I went searching two nights in a row and found a ton of stuff! There were some awesome sandbars that made wading for larger fossils super convenient. I found a horse tooth, bison tooth, two partial mammoth teeth, a whale ear-bone, and a bunch of other stuff including a nice little meg. Take a look

  18. Tusk

  19. Fossil ID please

    Found washed up on beach in Charleston County, South Carolina
  20. Ancient bone and tooth

    Found this in a small hill/ banks on side of creek in the Grove city, Ohio area. Bone is heavy rock about 13 inches long. Feels like calcite, up close looks like bone spurs. Rough feeling. Also found what I thought was some sort of crayfish, or Crestacian , later saw pics of mmmoth teeth and saw similarities. My thought was large bone maybe young mammoth or mastodon femur bone with tooth. Tooth is like 3 to 4 inches long. I am really new , and have really gotten into fossil hunting in rivers and creek beds. Was watching discovery channel so decided to dig into glacier like hill that sits along creek edge. Can anyone help. Any advice. Pretty sure from what I have read by texture and look this is very old bone. Prob not dinasour found in Midwest. Lol unfortunately. Thank you
  21. Hey everyone! Hope this finds you well and safe! I have had this Woolly Mammoth hair for a while now, but I’m wondering if it’s genuine? It states it was from Taimyr, Siberia. Any response is appreciated! Thanks!
  22. A fun article, from the good old, pre-COVID-19 epoch, that I could not find previously posted. I have to apologize somehow to 2019 for all of the bad things that said about it.

  23. Proboscidean Calcaneum?

    Was back at the Peace River, FL yesterday and happy to find recent rains had not impacted the water level or flow by much at all. Went back to the area where I previously found Proboscidean carpal, patella, jaw and tibia bones. After several hours of digging in a grid pattern I came up with what I believe is a well preserved calcaneum from a mammoth or mastodon. I would appreciate any input on this being a correct ID or not. Thanks.
  24. Chased by a Gator!

    Made another trip to the Peace River today. Got on the water by 8 am and headed for a spot where I have previously found mammoth and mastodon teeth. Started digging and by 9 am I had a partial mastodon tooth! Came up with a nice complete deer proximal phalanx, a handful of tiger shark teeth and some mammoth and mastodon tooth chips. My pouch was getting full so I went back to the kayak to safely put the mastodon tooth and other finds in bags and stow them away. As soon as I got back to where I was digging I heard the shovel "clink" on something. Reached down and pulled up a nice vert about 4" across. My probe then bumped something and I came up with what I believe is a mammoth or mastodon patella! Kept digging and started pulling up large bones ranging from 8 " to 12" long and up to just over 4" wide. Ended up with four of them. I was wearing some new gloves recommended by @Shellseeker and was very glad I had them on. When getting up these large pieces I was doing a lot of hand digging trying not to damage the bones while pulling them up. I found an additional large bone that was quite rounded and took a good deal of hand work to free from the sandy bottom. When I finally pulled it up my first thought was - looks like a baboon's behind (lol). I have been through my fossil guide and done some searching on line but haven't found anything that compares to it yet. I had decided ahead of time to head home by 2pm and about 11:30 I began moving all the finds back to the kayak as I knew it would take several trips. When this was done I headed back to the dig spot and the first sifter gave up a nice 1 1/4" meg. This was followed by what I believe is a mammoth germ tooth. More searching on line will be needed verify it. A few more shovels of gravel went into the sifter when I turned around to see an alligator (4" to 5") swiftly heading right toward me! I dropped the shovel and splashed out of the river so suddenly the gator stopped and turned sideways as it kept watching me. It floated there looking at me as I caught my breath and started wondering if I was going to get back in the water to retrieve my shovel and metal probe. We had a bit of a standoff for about 5 minutes. I took the time to load my pouches with the remaining finds I had placed on the bank. Seeing that the gator was just holding in place I mad a quick grab for my equipment and then decided to climb the bank and return to my kayak on land. I had never encountered an alligator in this spot before. Being it is gator mating season they do get more aggressive and territorial. Which means I won't be back to this site for the rest of the season. Thanks to the aggressive gator I called it a day at 12:30. Some photos of the best and largest finds - The stuff in the pail are small pieces that I believe came off the large long bones. Looks like I have another puzzle - like the tusk pieces found previously. Two close ups -
  25. Hello everyone I’ve been wondering for a while now about some pieces in my collection and whether they are genuine. Here are the three: Piece of Mammoth Tusk (pretty sure it’s fake) Cave Bear bone Spinosaurus Tooth
