  1. Back to the Peace River!

    Went back to the river yesterday inspite of the high gauge readings and strong discharge reports. The reports were spot on! The water level was visibly higher and the flow was really moving along. It was a tough pull to get the kayak up river to my favorite spot. I passed several new obstructions on the way, including a 25' to 30' palm tree, root ball included, sitting in the river where there was no sign of it last week. When I arrived at my intended dig spot the usual sandy shoreline I have been beaching the kayak on did not exist. I had to climb the bank and tie off the kayak to a tree to keep it from washing downstream. My usual easy walk to start digging was hampered by deep water. I decided to climb the bank to avoid taking an unwanted swim and to keep from having to climb over a couple of downed tree trunks. This proved a bad idea as there was deep grass, numerous holes and a deep gully in the way - kept thinking about gators and snakes hiding below. So, back to the water and a slow careful advance over the tree trunks and through the deep water. I managed to get there without taking a dunk! Last Friday I found my first partial Mastodon tooth in this spot. Yesterday, within 15 minutes of starting to dig another, bigger partial Mastodon tooth came up! This one was clinging to the side of the shovel with the shovel blade between the teeth. I nearly dropped it I was so surprised. Luckily I got it into the screen before it could take a dive back in. By way of comparison below is a picture of last weeks tooth with the one from yesterday. My time was limited yesterday, only could spend about 2 hours digging. In addition to the Mastodon partial I also found a nice meg and horse molar. All in all - Great Day!
  2. Large Bone Fragment?

    Hello, this was found on a southern Minnesota river rock/sand bar. I have a guess what it is but wanted to see what your unbiased opinion is by not divulging my suspicion. It dense but pretty light like a piece of very hard plywood. This was found by a friend who loves hunting river banks and rock bars...
  3. Tooth Identification Help

    Hi again fellow fossil-lovers! I was fortunate enough to come across this beauty at a yard sale so no known origin of course. Ok, here's the fun part... To me, in my amateurish-style expertise, it looks like a Mastadon tooth, however, it appears WAY too white & clean in my opinion to be as old as claimed by geologic history. Can someone help me out here? Do I have a Mastadon tooth? An "Old Asian" Elephant? It's certainly not a replica, that much I know for sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated & thank you to everyone who's helped me in my previous threads. You're all an awesome bunch!
  4. Hello! I have a coworker that found this tooth in the Kansas City Missouri area creek walking. It is definitely a tooth, and from my limited resources and knowledge it is definitely a deciduous tooth ( no roots) and it looks like a peccary tooth though maybe a bit large for a "baby" tooth, so the thought on deciduous mastodon?. I can get specific measurements, but it is about 2-2 1/4 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches wide. Thoughts appreciated! Bone
  5. Large leg bone from a dinosaur?

    Found this fossil south of Hutto along Brushy Creek in Williamson County Texas...any ideas? Also found some large snail fossils.
  6. Mastadon tooth from Georgia

    Beautiful mastadon tooth I found this year in Georgia
  7. Mastodon tooth enamel?

    I took a trip to the North Sulphur River this past weekend and this was the first thing I found. It looks like Mastadon tooth enamel to me but I’ve never found any, so I could wrong. Any input is much appreciated. I’ll be posting more things I found while on my trip. Thank’s.
  8. Hi everyone- I have a juvenile mammoth tusk that I would like to learn how to stabilize and restore. The problem is I have (almost) no idea how to even start! The tusk is fully dried out, but it’s split down the middle. I need some advice! Here’s what I know has to be done: 1. Clean the outside and inside as much as possible without using water- any suggestions on what to use? 2. Superglue the two pieces together and use hose clamps to hold the two pieces together- any suggestions on glue/method? 3. Fill gaps/cracks with epoxy- any suggestions on a good type? 4. Sand sand sand! 5. Beyond this point I’m not sure- is there some sort of protective varnish people use? I’m sure I’m missing about a dozen crucial steps here- I have literally never tried anything like this before, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. I posted some photos of the tusk, and I will post photos of progress! Thanks everyone.
  9. Mammoth or mastodon ivory?

    I cut into this piece with my tile saw to make sure that was when I thought it was. Prehistoric Ivory. Weight and solid 15 lbs and is covered in weird white stuff
  10. Why are these black

    I have numerous size rocks that are pure black, that I found this past weekend. Since I found them when the creek was low and they were grouped together I thought I found something!
  11. Any info on this tooth

    Hello everyone I received this tooth which I bealive it to be either mastodon or mammoth I was told it was found in Texas and that's all I know any info on this tooth would be great. Would it be juvenile or a full grown animal and maybe a approximate age of the tooth it does have some Stoney matrix on the tooth and a lot of cool enamal on the inside thanks to all .the weight of the tooth is 1047 grams.
  12. Hi everybody! I just a question. Does anybody actually purchase dinosaur bones ? I took this bone to UWL and they confirmed and I have emails and photos verifying that it is a Mastadon femur bone. They think they it wasn't full grown yet when it died. It's pretty cool actually and they can't believe how good of condition it is in.
