  1. Reading an ID topic today by none other than @Ruger9a I was realizing how little love the herbivore teeth get sometimes. Personally I love herbivore teeth, especially proboscideans (although I don't have many). So I thought I'd start a topic to show off your underappreciated plant eaters. Note: all herbivores are welcome, not just proboscideans, and not just mammals. Have fun with it!
  2. Miomastodon revalidated

    A new paper on extinct elephants is available at this link: Shi-Qi Wang; Xiao-Xiao Zhang; Chun-Xiao Li, 2020. Reappraisal of Serridentinus gobiensis Osborn & Granger and Miomastodon tongxinensis Chen: the validity of Miomastodon. Vertebrata PalAsiatica in press. doi:10.19615/j.cnki.1000-3118.200310. It's quite interesting to see Miomastodon resurrected from synonymy with Zygolophodon because given that Zygolophodon aegyptensis is known from early Miocene deposits in Egypt, Miomastodon may have evolved from a population of Zygolophodon in central Asia that evolved bunodont cheek teeth, and then entered North America from East Asia in the middle Miocene.
  3. Mastodon or Gomphothere?

    Mastodon or Gomphothere? Northeast Texas North Sulphur River area find.
  4. Long cold hike.

    Long nine hour freezing hike in Northeast Texas. The partial mastodon tooth and tylosaur jaw section with replacement tooth were the highlights of my day. I dated the old soda bottle to the 1950's. The artifacts were a nice bonus.
  5. Mastodon?

    Recently found on the beach, upper Texas coast.
  6. ID Help Please

    Picked up the below partial tooth on the first trip to the Peace River for the new season on Friday. Was pretty sure it was a partial Mastodon tooth. After searching numerous images I am now thinking it could be Gomph. Any help with a positive ID would be greatly appreciated. Sorry the ruler became blurred as the focus was concentrated on the tooth. Size is 2" x 2" by 2.5" high.
  7. Is this a chunk of mastodon tooth?

    My wife found this yesterday at Myrtle Beach, SC. I'm thinking maybe a broken off piece of mastodon. What do folks think?
  8. Everyone said NSR was dry and picked over but I hiked 9 hrs and found some cool stuff. My favorites are the Protostega costal bone with partial rib head preserved, the mosasaur bone with bite mark and the artifacts. I walked in tracks all day but the river is too large for someone to get everything and people miss quite a bit.
  9. New fossil hunter here! I recently moved to Florida for graduate school and was quickly introduced to fossil hunting. I've been addicted ever since. Here are some images of the first fossils I've found here in North Florida. Mako for sure, but can anyone confirm what kind of bone I have? I'm thinking it *could* be mastodon rib, but that's just an amateur's guess. Anyways, I'm excited to continue showing my finds! Baby meg pictures to come...
  10. I found this today. Same sand bar all the others were found. I’m really not sure what this is but think I should be excited?...
  11. Need id please

    Hi all! Newbie to the forum. Found this item about 20-25 years ago. I’ve just reunited myself with it after re-discovering it at my fathers house, in his front yard. I found this in Agoura, California while hiking close to the 101 freeway. It was found on a hillside, elevation around 1200 feet (above sea level).Partially buried. Mastodon? Whale? Sloth? Rock? Hmmm. Hope the photos help. I apologize in advance for the lack of metric ruler. One of the photos is a magnified close up of the bottom side which shows what seems to be a cellular-like inner bone structure. Specimen also seems to have a tendon-looking impression or canal which leads me to believe it could be a lower leg joint? I also wet the specimen with de-ionized water to show more definition. I can only submit 1 or 2 photos due to size limit so maybe I’ll do several posts. Thanks for looking!
  12. 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??
  13. Mastodon tooth find

    My son and I discovered this a few weeks ago while metal detecting. Didn’t realize what it was at first but knew it was something important
  14. Mastodon tooth enamel?

    Found this a year or two back while creek walking in Central Texas (Austin area). I always figured it was just part of a cretaceous era shell which are so common in our creeks. But I've recently seen pictures of mastodon enamel, and I've gotta say it looks similar. Any chance I'm on to something?
  15. I’m not familiar with fossils at all so I need help identifying the specimen in the attached pictures. I found this mineral specimen, or at least I thought it was just a large crystal rock, in 2012 at my stepdads house in Placerville, Colorado(San Juan Mountains, down valley from Telluride). I was moving the rock, accidentally dropped it and several pieces broke off. That’s when I wondered if it was a fossil due to the presence of what looks like dried blood, venous cavities, connective tissue, bone, and skin. It is as if it was frozen instantly and turned into stone and crystal, Medusa reminiscent. The San Juan volcanic field is said to be the largest eruption in the world and the proximity of where I found it could explain the strange preservation (if it is in fact a fossil).
  16. Mastodon tooth enamel

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    A small flake of mastodon tooth enamel. Scale bar = 1 cm. Collected 6/21/19.
  17. 6/21/19 Trip haul

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    All the fossils I found in the span of a couple of hours on my first trip to POC. Scale bar = 1 cm. Collected 6/21/19.
  18. Water was a little high but I found a few things at the North Sulphur River Texas.
  19. Mastodon Bones Found in Indiana

    While digging a sewer on an Indiana farm, workers find mastodon bones. Seems like these stories come up all the time, but I still like reading them. https://abc7chicago.com/science/mastodon-bones-unearthed-on-southern-indiana-farm/5263190/
  20. Possible Toe Bone

    Good evening, i found a bone that I believe to be a toe bone of a mastodon or mammoth. The bone was found in the Neuse River in Craven County, NC. Thank you in advance for assistance in identifying this piece.
  21. NJ Possible Mastodon Find

    Hey everyone, I have this possible Mastodon tooth “cone” from NJ. I know it is a fossil, meaning it’s got to be Cretaceous or Pleistocene because of the area it was found in, and it really doesn’t look like any Cretaceous bone I’ve seen from here. That shiny inner stuff on the inside (the concave side) of the item reminds me of enamel; it led me to conclude that this is a partial “cone” of a mastodon tooth. I don’t know much at all about mammals, but it appears that the shiny stuff is what’s left of the enamel/cementum/whatever it’s called that would have been on the inside of the cone. That inside part also has cracks running lengthwise and an uneven surface. The outside layer (on the more convex side) of the possible mastodon tooth cone seems pretty worn away and may have had a whole entire layer of enamel covering it before the wear. It’s about 1.5 inches. @non-remanié This possible remain will most likely look significantly different than fragments from other states because NJ’s preservation is usually different. I’m going to tag some members that I think are experienced with Mastodon remains from other states. @Harry Pristis @PrehistoricFlorida @Shellseeker @digit @jcbshark @Gatorman @RickNC Thanks guys!
  22. Mastodon bones & teeth

    Here are the larger bones that have been dug along with the teeth. Also have a box of smaller shards.
  23. These have only been out of the water a very short time. Are there preservation steps that I should be taking or will they be fine if placed under glass and out of the sunlight? Thanks for any information.
