  1. How common is Wolly Mammoth hair? I don't have a specific auction to point out but I commonly see Mammoth hair listed on auction sites. Most of them from sellers with really good feedback. Is this stuff common enough that most of these auctions are legit or are the majority of the auctions available fakes?
  2. Mammoth tooth stabilization

    Hello everybody, So, a friend of mine gifted me a mammoth molar he's had for sometime now (he's not into fossils, got it himself from somebody else). The molar was found a long time ago, is as it was found (not stabilized), and in 3 pieces. 2 of them fit nicely together, one seems to be missing some smaller bits but could still go glued together. The molar itself is pretty stable, while there are occasional exterior pieces falling it is not a very fast degradation, but still, i would like to stabilize it. Somebody gave me a quick hint that i could use epoxy to glue the pieces together and then soak the mammoth molar into a solution of watered PVA glue, so that i can get into every hole and stop the degradation process. I was hoping some of you guys might give me a bit of a more detailed approach to this. Mostly, i am interested what is the ratio between the PVA glue and the water in the watered PVA glue solution and how much should i leave it soaked in it. Also, in case you guys know of an alternative stabilization method i am open to suggestions. I also attached some pictures of the tooth in question. Thank you very much!
  3. Myrtle Beach Mammoth?

    My wife annoyed me by finding this at Myrtle Beach today. Can folks confirm this is a mammoth tooth fragment. She gets to spend a lot of time at the beach. She finds stuff on my bucket list and doesnt even know what's she's finding. Grrrr
  4. Mammoth Repair

    I picked up this mammoth humerus from the Brown County Museum of History a couple weeks ago and have begun the repair. Apparently, someone tried to move it and it must have gotten dropped. I don't have the story on the damage, only the request for repair. Nobody's admittin' nuthin'! It came to me in 3 boxes (never a good thing for a single bone). This bone has an unknown provinance but has been at the museum for decades. Judging by the state of the plaster restoration, I would say this was done sometime in the 1960' or 70's. I soaked the exposed bone in stabilizer and applied a liberal mount of clear, non-expanding, Gorilla Glue to the joints and strapped the whole thing together for a couple of days. My lab is still covered in Green river fish so, while the wife was away from the house, the bone got moved to the dining room table. to her credit, she didn't say a word about it when she got home! I think she's been around me long enough to expect random dead things showing up in her house. This was when I discovered that I am completely out of white Apoxie Sculpt for the crack filling. Thankfully, I have to paint the repairs anyway so, they will get dark brown epoxy. I don't have a picture of the epoxied cracks yet but they are done and I've used about a gallon of cyannoacrylate on the plaster because upon closer inspection, the whole thing was covered in hairline cracks and just waiting to fall apart. I don't want to do a full restoration on this thing so I made the decision to save what is there.
  5. A few (non meg) fossils

    These are some of the fossils I have acquired. Have some others I still need to photo and maybe a big one on the way soon. I have one other ammonite I have found. All 3 are from duck creek. The 2 mossasaur teeth and the mammoth tooth were purchased. The mammoth is coated in something to protect it. There is also a tooth fragment.

  7. Mammoth tusk ivory piece?

    cześć To jest kawałek mamuta? Lokalizacja: okolice Wisły, Kraków, Polska Południowa Wiek: plejstocen?
  8. Hey everyone! On Wednesday, as I finally had some time, I decided to take Sara out to my favorite hunting spot: the Zandmotor (Netherlands). I definitely did not regret that decision! If you've never heard of the Zandmotor before, it's an artificial beach extension just south of The Hague, and the sand that was used was dredged from the North Sea and is full of Ice Age megafaunal mammal bones and tons of Eemian shells. If you want to see some more of my finds and hunts there, just look up "Zandmotor" in the TFF search bar and you should find a bunch of stuff When we got there it was raining, which annoyed me a little bit because the forecast said it wouldn't... The rain also makes the sand stick to the fossils which can become annoying when looking for small fossils or trying to recognize the thing you just picked up. But, having just spent an hour in the bus to get here, I didn't want to turn back immediately. Luckily the rain stopped within half an hour, and I wasn't even on the Zandmotor yet (I have to walk about an hour from the bus stop to the Zandmotor itself) and after that the weather alternated between cloudy and sunny which was nice. While I usually always take a pass by the shell banks, today I decided to only walk along the shoreline to increase the chances of finding good mammal stuff. In fact, there had been a strong eastern wind on Tuesday which helped uncover a lot of the bones and make them wash ashore. This did not go unnoticed, there were a lot indeed! Here is my first big find of the day, a great complete horse astralagus!
  9. mammoth leg

    HELP! small central Texas museum broke mammoth leg bone. how do we fix it?
  10. Memorable hunt FL

    I had a pretty decent hunt recently. The highlight was bending over to pick up a section of mammoth tooth and as I was spotting the arrowhead less than 12" away.
  11. My diving day was filled with technical difficulties. But after a frustrating morning I dove down to a fossil rich spot. I had to wait a bit to get back in due to tide changes, but this mammoth tooth was sitting right there for the taking!
  12. Pliocene bone river find in Iowa

    To me this seems to be a toe or foot bone of some sort but from what? Found in an area where bison, mammoth have been found. thanks for looking and any educated guesses!
  13. Hi! After a while i did some drawings, and here is a new addition to my collection, the Cave bear, not the common one (Ursus spelaeus). This bear was also bigger than a common cave bear and lived also in Caves as Ursus spelaeus. He is Ursus ingressus or Gamssulzen Cave bear. Lived along with Ursus spelaeus and died out at the end of Pleistocene period. I did him especially cause i have many teeth from that bear and first i thought that is a Ursus spelaeus but i was wrong. He lived in Central and Eastern Europe, so here are found many specimens of him. Except him here are well known Dire wolf and a woolly Mammoth. Enjoy
  14. Mammoth tusk or petrified wood.

    Hello every one. I need help with these objects I recently found on my folks place in north east Texas. I believe it appears to be tusk. first I thought it was just petrified wood but I don’t know. The more I excavate the site the more that more pieces I find. I would greatly appreciate the advice and opinions. Thanks again.
  15. Help Identifying - Tusk?

    Hi- we are new to this forum and have great interest in finding out what we picked up this weekend after Hurricane Dorian on the beach in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We actually drove from Ohio Friday night to look for sharks teeth and came home with a few (nothing sizely this visit) and this piece of what we believe to be fossilized tusk.
  16. Mammoth Tooth?

    Does anyone know if its possible to age (approximate) a mammoth by the number/spacing of enamel ridge-plates in its teeth?
  17. Late Pleistocene Mammals,Iowa

    My son and I went fossil hunting last weekend and here are our findings. The most recognizable is the mammoth tooth.
  18. Mammoth Tooth?

    More river finds in Minnesota. I'm fairly certain this is a mammoth tooth fragment. My buddy, (again!) see my previous post, found this on a gravel bar. I have to say this has me very excited to go hunt with him. The size is 6.5” X 3.75” X 1.5” and the layers fluoresce under UV light
  19. Claims of a mammoth tusk...

    Posting for an acquaintance. Someone claims this is a mammoth tusk, and they're 100% certain. I'm not so sure. I've seen mammoth tusks in museums, and up close and personal digging one out of the dirt. I don't remember longitudinal striations like this object has. Can anyone tell me what it might really be? Or confirm if it's actually a segment of a mammoth tusk? Best pictures I've got, 3rd party source.
  20. Fossil Mix

  21. Bones found in my Fathers Barn

    Hello everyone, I am new to the group. I was cleaning my fathers barn this weekend and discovered these three fossils. He is very elderly but he said they were found on Whidbey Island in Washington. He thought they were Mammoth teeth. We did not know what the fang is from. Or is it a mammoth tusk? Any info would be appreciated... Thanks Bill
  22. While hunting for fossils at Aurora on vacation my father in-law told us about a sorry he was told as a kid. He grew up on a farm outside of Hackettstown. He said that the neighboring farm had a mammoth found in it's pond sometime in the 20's or 30's. It evidently was taken to a college or university in Connecticut . He said he always wondered whatever happened to the mammoth. I know this is probably a needle in a haystack sort of situation but if anyone has anyway of getting info on where the mammoth is or papers written that would be awesome. Thanks Adam
  23. I’m fairly certain this is a piece off a large bone from a mammoth or mastodon. Can anyone recognize what bone it’s from? Pelvis??
  24. Pleistocene (Ice Age) fossils ID

    Hi all, Planning to better organize my small fossil collection in a single showcase, so with emphasis on Mezozoic finds I'll probably be able to devote max one shelf to the Quarternary. Would be good to clean up and recheck the ID (I know just a half anyway). So a bit of help will be appreciated:) The items: 1. Woolly mammoth tooth?
  25. Is this mammoth tooth real ?

    i saw this on online. Is it real ?
