  1. Hi everyone Last Thursday I went to visit the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences in Brussels as a little pre-birthday trip. I have visited this museum several times in the past few years, but this time I took my camera with me and thought it might be fun to do a photo tour of the museum for this forum Beware, this will be quite a big topic that might take a few days to complete as I took nearly 750 photo's in the museum (a lot will have to be sorted out though due to blurry quality, photo's of only name tags and doubles) as I wanted to show pretty much all fossil displays Especially the Hall of the Dinosaurs, the hall of the Mosasaurs & The Hall of Evolution will be quite complete tours Starting off with some snapshots of the hall of the minerals. The meteorite display room
  2. Help IDing a few rock/possible fossils.

    Hey everybody, I’m new to the forum and was hoping some of you have some thoughts on a few rock/fossils I have. I found all three of them on a gravel bar on a river in Interior Alaska. I believe the geology of the area is mostly quaternary. I believe the first specimen is part of a mammoth tooth. (A friend of mine found a mammoth scapula on the same stretch of the river.) A sedimentologist at the university in town is also leaning towards the opinion that it’s part of a mammoth tooth. I’ve never seen mammoth teeth have that type of coloration before though. The second sample looks to me like it could be a very weathered and replaced bone? The third specimen I’m really not sure about. It just looks very suspicious to me. I know it’s not one but It almost looks like a belemnite and is oddly polished and shiny for a rock in that area. Any thoughts and ideas would be great.
  3. Mammoth Tooth?

    No more info sorry
  4. Went out to the Peace River yesterday. The water flow and depth were down to very workable levels. Weather was very nice after several days of below normal temps. I still needed the wetsuit due to the water temp, but it was a really great day to be on the river. After an easy paddle up river I found my targeted spot was at a level similar to where it was in October. I was able to easily pull the kayak up onto a sandy bank and step out with no effort. A check of the bank for about 25 yards in either direction failed to yield up any finds. With that I began working my way along the river to the spot I had in mind for the day. Things started off slow with only various small shark teeth and chips of mammoth found through the morning. Feeling a bit disappointed I headed out more into the middle of the river, luckily easy to get to with the river level down. I was back at a spot where I found a Gomphotherium partial tooth in early October. Within only a few minutes and a couple of shovels full of gravel I was rewarded with another partial Gomp tooth! As I worked the area for the rest of the afternoon I came up with a horse molar, a partial vert, turtle scutes, a nice tiger shark tooth and many more small shark teeth. It turned out to be a great day. Photos below: Best of the day: New Gomph tooth: Gomp tooth from October alongside the new one (first find on top):
  5. Hi! I visited the museum today (Kyiv Archeological Museum). And noticed the thing I had seen before (in 2017, in Vienna Natural History Museum). It's the mammoth shoulder in which zigzag ornament inflicted red ochre. This thing occurs in Mezin. The site is one of the better-known examples of Magdalenian culture in Ukraine. (sorry for the low-quality photos)
  6. SE Texas fossil hunt

    So Monday my wife told me to go on a fossil trip. Actually she just wanted me out of the house so that she could have some friends over. I ended up picking a river stretch that I had covered twice over the last few months even though I figured it would be thoughly picked over. But it was sunny and 75F which is good even for Texas in January. It started out slow. An armadillo scute. A horse astragalus. And then I found this. I've only found a single camelops upper molar. This is a pair and partial palate.
  7. Hi my name is Elias and I am new to the Forum! About a week ago I found a large piece of what looked to be fossilized bone, on Folly Beach SC. Upon further examination I noticed that it seemed to have a solid light gray center surrounded by a ring of bone. Further research has led me to believe this may be a chunk of Mastadon tusk, however the specimen is so beaten up it is hard to identify any Schreger lines. I am much more experienced in Cambrian and Ordovician fossils, and have just recently begun exploring fossils of the Pleistocene Epoch. I would appreciate any help on identifying what this is, and can send more or clearer photos if necessary! Thank you so much for your help! Elias
  8. Venice dive trip 12/28

    Finished the last dive of the year off Venice with my first complete mammoth tooth and a few small megs to top it off.
  9. North Sea mammoth bone?

    Hi all, I was given this piece of bone as a Christmas gift. From what I was told it is from the North Sea and is an Ice Age bone. It was suggested by the seller that it could be mammoth. Is it possible to confirm this and if so, what bone could it be part of? It has a hole that goes all the way through if that helps. Thanks in advance
  10. Mastodon?

    Recently found on the beach, upper Texas coast.
  11. Took a little overnight trip to hit up a few fossil sites. It was a lovely balmy 80 degrees the day before, but a cold front blew through that night and dropped the temp to the upper 30s with drizzle! But my husband and I had already commited to a dinner with cousins and a B&B stay in Waco and a "guided" tour to the Waco Research PIt the next day, so snarge the weather, off we went. First site was to Brownwood in an attempt to find a supposed Pennsylvanian roadcut to look for crinoids and such. The drizzle finally stopped when I found what I thought "might" be the site, but it certainly was not what I was expecting....I knew it was supposed to be a large roadcut....and this one was not. So I poked around, found a few crinoids and some branching bryzoans and one nice big hashplate, but that was IT. Not at all what I was hoping for. So, dissapointed, we headed down the road since we had dinner plans and needed to get to Waco. I figured I had time to stop at one more stop if I saw a worthwile looking roadcut. So over the river and through the woods (okay, scrub oaks) we headed down the road and over top of a hill, the sun broke through the clouds and WAS ACTUALLY SHINING ON A LARGE ROAD CUT on the next hill. I told my husband, "I guess I should stop at THAT one." hahhaha!! And I am glad we did. It was getting colder but I decided i could tough it our for 20 minutes or so and I filled my bag easily in that 20 minute. I think I was in the Walnut Formation due to what I was finding.....heart urchins, tylostoma gastropods, a nice sized Pinna comancheana bivalve, some turritellas and what always makes it a good day for fossil hunting ; two medium size Phymosoma urchins and a small Coenholectypus. Not well preserved, but I was happy with them nonetheless. Turned a dissapointing day around, for sure. Had a nice dinner at George's in Waco and a lovely stay at the White Rock Creek Bed and Breakfast (AMAZING breakfast....stuffed french toast, eggs, bacon, yogurt and fruit...yum) and then off to the Lake Waco Research Pit! Got our permits and met my new friend Matthew who was kind enough to give us a guided tour of the stie and helped me identify my finds (even though i did not find what I was REALLY after...crabs and starfish)! Ah well. Next time. Found a lovely hetermorph Mariella (which was one of the things I really wanted to find) , a pycnodont tooth plate (another thing I have been hoping to find for a while),a nice ammonite (not sure the species, Matthew told me but I don't remember...will have to look it up), and a Cidarid plate (would have LOVED to have found a whole one...still on my bucket list). Now I know that is four fossils... I took my husbands two. He was happy to give them to me. (You are only allowed 2 fossils from the site which is absurd because there are SO MANY FOSSILS THERE). Anyways, it was a fun gloppy messy muddy morning of fossil hunting with Matthew and his two galumphing doggos - Bella and Poppy. I did not envy him the clean up he was going to have to do on those dogs. Lastly, on our way out of town, we stopped by the Mammoth Site which is really astounding. I got to see it about 25 years ago, before it had really even been turned into a park it was just a dig site. My step-grandfather knew the land owner so we got to see it...hopped a fence to see the site even! So it was great to see it so many years later as a National Monument. Good interpretive tour by the guides, a good view of the mammoths and the potential for more in the future (they are in phase one of three parts to bring the original excavated mammoths back to the site from their storage, so the future site will be even better!). So that concludes a little two day tour around Texas. Next time I'll find that roadcut. It's there somewhere. I just know it. Pennsylvanian stuff: Cretaceous Stuff: Aside from the urchins, which are always a favorite find, this one was my "best finds" of the day. I have not found one so well preserved with the detail of the shell striations. I think its a Homomya bivalve, but I am not one hundred percent on ID.

  12. 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?
  13. 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!
  14. 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
  15. 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.
  16. 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.

  18. Mammoth tusk ivory piece?

    cześć To jest kawałek mamuta? Lokalizacja: okolice Wisły, Kraków, Polska Południowa Wiek: plejstocen?
  19. 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!
  20. mammoth leg

    HELP! small central Texas museum broke mammoth leg bone. how do we fix it?
  21. 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.
  22. 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!
  23. 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!
  24. 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
  25. 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.
