  1. Mammoth tusks found off Florida’s coast from Aquanutz Scuba Diving Charters Largest Tusk nearly 8-feet in length and 22-inches around on the fat end of the tusk. By Noel Rehm, WWSB, Sarasota, Florida, December 30, 2020 Yours, Paul H.
  2. Mammoth/Mastadon fragment

    Found in alluvial deposits along a creek in Travis county, TX. Thanks for the look
  3. I think this is a mammoth fragment

    I found this at Myrtle Beach. It looks to me like a worn mammoth tooth fragment, but I'm interested in opinions of others. The rock is very dense, and where it is chipped it has strips of varying light and dark colors. It is a little larger than a baseball. I assume that much of the wear is from rolling in the surf. I will post other views in replies. Thanks, Jim Kovalchick

  5. This is my second mammoth tusk of the year, but while the first I found was rock solid and all that remained was one side of the tusk, this one is whole and a lot more fragile. After getting it home I made the stupid decision to wash it off in the sink, thinking that the sandstone matrix adhering to the tusk was just ordinary sand and river gravel and would come off just as easily. Instead, the water soaked into the tusk's core and when I tried picking it up it snapped in half. It took a couple of days sitting under a window and wrapped in paper towels for the water to finally get drawn back out, but the damage was clearly already done. The outer surface of the tusk is pretty thoroughly mineralized, but the inside is incredibly crumbly. I've seen several posts on the forum already about using butvar solution to stabilize mammoth tusks, but I couldn't find anything that gave a clear, step-by-step guide that would be easy enough for a newbie like me to follow. Aside from stabilizing the tusk, I'd also obviously need to glue the two broken halves back together where they broke apart. However, that's complicated by the fact that tiny pieces of the ivory fell off in the area around the crack when it broke. If you look close in the pictures, you can see that the two halves don't meet up perfectly in the middle anymore. Is there some sort of epoxy or something I could use to fill in that gap?

  6. Proboscidean Ulna

    Since the Peace River, FL has been running deep and fast for the last few weeks I decided to spend some time prepping and making a display for several proboscidean bones found in the spring. After posting the bones for id here when they were found and doing a bit of research on my own I believe what I have are pieces of an ulna from either a Mammoth or Mastodon. There is the possibility of Gomph, but Dr. Hulbert has informed me a couple of times that Gomph specimens have not yet been found in the Peace River. So first up is a photo of the four ulna sections along with the other specimens found that day. Several pieces in the pink plastic bucket were later able to be reattached to a couple of the ulna sections. I did come up with one additional ulna section on a return visit to the same spot later that week. Next is a photo of the four ulna pieces lined up for an overall idea of size. Two of these large pieces were able to be put back together after consolidation and formed the standing piece in the display. They are the two in the middle in the below photo. Finally, three photos of the completed display with rulers to get an idea of proportion. The metal ruler laying flat is 15" overall. The standing portion of the display consists of two pieces I was able to glue back together after consolidation it measures about 20". Two of the pieces laying flat had smaller pieces from the pink bucket in the first photo reattached after everything was consolidated with acetone and PVA beads. I used some scrap wood to make the tray table and post support. Some soft toy modeling clay was used to rest the base of the upright bone on. Clay was also used to form a ball over the top of the wooden support post to prevent the post from damaging the specimen. The tray table was filled with sand to lay the additional pieces on and give it a finishing touch. Looking forward to getting back to the Peace River in the coming week to see what new wonders have been uncovered by the summer rainy season!
  7. Mammoth Radius?

    Found on the Brazos River several months ago. Although worn and incomplete, it seems like there's enough diagnostic features to make an identifcation possible, at least in my mind. After searching the forum and the Internet for anything comparable, the closest match I was able to find was the proximal end of a mammoth radius - mostly because of the shape of the articular facet and the areas surrounding it. Obviously mammoth bones are huge, but from the pictures I've seen it looks like even though the radius itself is very long, it only broadens towards the distal end. Any help would be appreciated, even if it does mean calling me crazy!
  8. Hi im and amateur collector and I'm not sure if the was the right section to post this under. I purchased this tusk a couple years ago. The seller said he's had it since the 1970s. Because of the large crack from top to bottom and the inside is quite powdery. Is there and thing I can do to preserve it? Its about 6.5 feet along the curve and 120lb so I get worried when I move it. Also I see that great patina on some tusks is that something that is added 5o make it shine or does it comes out of the ground like that? Any help would be appreciated!
  9. Hello, I am looking for tips on how to distinguish the teeth of a woolly mammoth from a steppe mammoth or a forest elephant. Thank you in advance
  10. Is this a real mammoth tooth?

    Hi all, Someone offered me to sell his what he called to be a baby mammoth tooth. I have been looking around but I am a bit suspicious about the root. I would appreciate if you would kindly put some expertise on it before I buy it. Unfortunately the origin is not known, but it is probably found by fisherman in the North Sea. Thanks for helping me out! Ronny
  11. Proboscidea foot bone?

    ID help appreciated. Found diving near Venice Beach, Florida.
  12. Mammoth Tooth Discovered in Early 1900s

    From the album Some Minnesota ~Fossils

    A mammoth tooth found in New Ulm, MN in 1912 during street construction. It is now in the collection at the Brown County Historical Society museum.
  13. Partial Mammoth Tooth

  14. Mammoth Tarsal or Carpal?

    I found this digging in a phosphate mine in Florida 20 years ago when I was pretty young. I don’t remember exactly where. Although, I do still remember we found a mammoth thoracic vertebrae and someone else found an equus mandible in the same general area. I’m not the best with carpals and tarsals. I can only regularly recognize calcanei and astragali. I was under the impression it was from a mammoth or some other Proboscidean. It wouldn’t surprise me if I was completely wrong. Anyone know what it is?
  15. Possible mammoth tooth fragment?

    Hi, I found these a few months ago at Happisburgh. I'm hoping the black orange bit is a mammoth tooth fragment. I also found this grey rock, I've tried to look online but can't find anything similar looking to work out what it is. Many thanks.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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!
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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!
  24. 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
  25. 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.
