  1. Florida Pleistocene Teeth

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and figured this would be a good first post. I was wading through Peace River and found a couple items that I need help identifying. The first I'm guessing is a tooth or nail. I can't find it anywhere in my Florida vertebrates book. It has a circle in the middle, which may help the identification process, as I have never seen this before. The second item is what I believe to be a piece of Mastodon tooth. There appears to be a crystal grey emamel on the tip of what I think is the root. Any help would be greatly appreciated. .
  2. This was the year of the Mammal for me. The antler piece was given to me by my friend Bill who ONLY keeps shark teeth-he also gave me the meg pieces in the previous post. The 2nd piece in the picture I can not id. Pictures 3-5 is this a deer tooth? 6/7 horse? 8/9 piece of mastodon tooth? 10/11 mammoth tooth piece, 12/13 looks like tooth material?, 14,15 looks to me to be ivory? mastodon or mammoth? 16/17 looks like the baleen groove for a baleen whale? I have a number of other large bone? pieces that i will post later as part 3 to try and see if identifiable as well as some interesting modern stuff. I did not post the bryozoan material I found either. Thanks for looking and any corrections, suggestions or comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
  3. Mastodon or wooly mammoth

    Dug up from the sand about 30 feet below ground close to the red river
  4. This mastodon tooth was apparently found in Florida in 2016. The blackish spots look like they are crystals/minerals that have replaced part of the tooth. Also, on the backside, it appears that there is plaster from when it was wrapped up. I still don’t know if it is real or fake though. Please help! Thanks!
  5. Florida creek hunt

    Had a pretty decent haul today.

  7. Short NSR Hunt!

    I got in a 3 hr hunt before the rain and flooding. Once the water started coming up I had to make a quick exit but still got wet. I managed to find a few things.
  8. I walked in tracks all day hunting but still managed a few finds. I really like the coprolite full of little fish bones and the Pleistocene horse ankle bone. I believe the little fish jaw is Saurodon.
  9. Mastodon tooth found in Iran

    https://www.aa.com.tr/en/culture-and-art/20-mn-year-old-fossilized-mastodon-teeth-found-in-iran/1263438# http://www.irna.ir/en/News/83042732
  10. I was shark tooth hunting and found this fragment on Casey Key, Florida 9 years ago. I recently went through my stuff and found 3 pieces of Mastodon Tooth Enamel. So I'm not sure if it's too small to ID but has a interesting wood grain pattern with enamel on the top. Can you ID it? Thanks FF!
  11. Everything is dry and picked over around Northeast Texas but I decided to go hunting anyway. Luckily I found a nice shady creek to hunt. I found one nice Mastodon tooth cusp with great color and a couple of artifacts. My buddy found a few rough artifacts and one nice shark tooth.
  12. Good Evening, I saw an image in my fossil book of an enamel cusp from a mastodon tooth that looked similar to my chunk. I found it in SW Florida and its a about 1 1/8" x 3/4". It's caramel and black in color with a few red spots and highly polished. It has yellowish fragments of something in the bottom of the indentation. Could this be tooth fragments? All replies are much appreciated.

  14. Neat mastodon rib bone for sale that I’m interested in. Can more knowledgable tell me if this is indeed M. americanum given that it’s just a bone fragment? Fossil is from north Florida
  15. Possible Mastodon -- Part 2

    PART 2 - Hello! I was hoping that you could help me identify some things that I found. A couple years ago I found a Mastodon at the beach in North Carolina and it was identified by the helpful people on TFF. This tooth is in photos below and is CIRCLED red. Editing to add location: Everything was found at the beach in North Carolina -- South Eastern NC - wrightsville beach. Below are 2 sets of images. I am talking to my childs 3rd grade class next week and I am bringing in some of my finds.. I don't feel comfortable bringing anything in that I haven't had identified so any help you could provide it greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to check out my fossils. Fossil 1: . Possibility 2:
  16. Possible Mastodon

    Hello! I was hoping that you could help me identify some things that I found. A couple years ago I found a Mastodon at the beach in North Carolina and it was identified by the helpful people on TFF. I believe that I have found several fossils that could be partial Mastodons. So that I won't confuse you with multiple fossils / pics I will just post this one below. I think that the one below contains multiple teeth? I am talking to my childs 3rd grade class next week and I am bringing in some of my finds.. I don't feel comfortable bringing anything in that I haven't had identified so any help you could provide it greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to check out my fossils.

  17. Fossil ID

    Is this a Mammoth or Mastadon tooth? ITEM 1 ITEM 2
  18. This year has not been a particularly productive one for me as far as fossil hunting goes, but sometimes in an entire day one screenful makes the difference. I found this really pretty little tooth in the last spot I tried, sure I was just sifting discards from the other hundred guys before me. It's not big, but it is really a pretty little thing. No roots, but nobody's perfect! I'll be back to this spot later this week just to confirm this was a fluke and my luck hasn't changed for the better.
  19. An excellent and lucky day

    Today I went with 2 friends to a hunting spot that has been productive for months , but was beginning to run out of gravel that one of us had not sifted thru. Most of the morning we spent seeking gravel, and finding small shark teeth, turtle bone, footpads and spurs, a few pieces of mammoth tusk, dugong/manatee rib sections, a couple of baracuda teeth, and one !!!! horse tooth. The day did not improve for my friends. This is actually where LUCK comes in... We have an excellent hunting spot, all 3 of us are excellent hunters with great techniques, we are digging within 20 feet of each other. I got hot at noon; We packed up and left 2 hours later. These days are the ones I recall when I'm the one finding little/nothing. Given all these fantastic finds, you might ask which I liked best... The juve mastodon spit tooth...versus the 2nd Calippus I have ever found. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/46940-three-toed/ I believe that this tooth is Calippus (16.25x19.25x20 mm) but maybe slightly larger than my Calippus Elachistus from May of 2014... Feeling good, Feeling GOOD and unbelievably LUCKY...
  20. I went on a 6 1/2 mile kayak adventure with a couple of friends on the North Sulphur River. We started off the day at 7AM by seeing 2 bald eagles and almost getting one truck stuck in the mud. We managed to get the truck out and started our adventure. As soon as I got down by the bridge I found one of my best artifacts to date and a nice piece of mastodon tooth enamel. We got a mile or so in and something made me ask my friend if he had the keys to his truck that was parked 6 1/2 miles downstream? Lol he had left them in the other truck without thinking. He went back and got his keys and the adventure begin. We saw very little footprints the entire trip. We didn't find many artifacts but I filled up a 1 gallon ziplock with mosasaur bones and other random fossils. One of my friends found his first shark vert, mosasaur vert and point so he was really excited. I gave my new hunter friend all my lower quality items and didn't bother taking pics of them. The water was low in some places so we had to drag the kayaks a lot but it was fun. We were finding so much stuff that we realized we would never make it the other vehicle before night if we did not quit hunting and paddle. It was so hard passing by untouched bars lol. We managed to make it back to the bridge by 7PM which was 12 hours later. Getting the kayaks up the steep bridge at the second location took all 3 men and a long rope. I got home at 9:30 PM. I'm sore but found some great fossils and artifacts. My phone died early in the trip so I missed out on some great pics. For some reason I can only post a few pics at a time since the latest update.
  21. Part 4 (from Washington)

    Ok, so here's where I've gotten to & this will bring you up to date with what I've accomplished so far. First, I used a couple of different small stiff brushes and a very low impact tool that is similar to a Dremel tool. I cleaned a sand type of dirt, that fell away without much effort, in places in & around on the surface. About half way through the cleaning the piece started to make noises as if cracking. I mixed up a tube of Duco cement with a six oz. bottle of acetone. I decide to apply it generously to areas I'd already cleaned. I believe it was a good move as the sound has stopped. Also, it feels more sound when I pick it up. After I had applied the solution, I left it under a uv light to dry.So what do you think so far?
  22. Part 3 (from Washington)

    Able to find me I see. Hope it was easy enough. Here's a few more pictures. They are also masodon. Femur, I believe, & the other part that it fits into to make it a leg. At this point I'm guessing so correct me if I'm mistaken, please. My colleague has told me a little about them & where they came from... ...back in the mid sixties, he & his wife-to-be took a trip to Nebraska so that he could get to know her family before they tied the knot. They were at her grandparents place. They were farmers & had quite a bit of acreage that they planted crops on. Her grandfather took them out to the barn where he had a huge pile of fossilized bones. They had just been authenticated as Mastodon. They were told that a man from the archeology department at the University of Nebraska had been there a few days prior with his findings. Unfortunately, there was no paperwork that came with them. Take a look. Let me know if this appears to be correct. And on that note I'm signing off (or out). Keep a look out for me as I'll be back later to tell you what I've accomplished so far. I sure hope I'm on the right track so far. Later, Tracy
  23. A Ridiculous Find

    A friend of mine last weekend was digging near an old creek bed on his farm property in Southern Ontario and came across a "Weird rock" as he described to me that I should check out, when I got to his house and he presented the approx. 10lbs "weird rock" my jaw hit the floor, this weird rock was 100% a tooth from something that lived a looong time ago. It was the coolest thing I'd ever seen before, so after an hour of googling we realized by the cusped shapes on the tooth this was a mastodon tooth....in his back yard practically. We are planning on going back to dig this weekend, so my question is a shallow one I'm sure to the people of this forum, He has expressed an interest in possibly selling what we find. If anyone has any insight as to the legality of moving fossils of this size, and perhaps if anyone knows where we could find buyers it would be greatly appreciated. I have read other topics on this forum that relate sort of to this one but on a much smaller scale. I understand how this may sound but I want to make it clear he's not interested in just adding to his bankroll, in a way he thinks maybe this could save his farm if he was to make something from it. It's not a matter of greed but a matter of getting by for him. Thanks in advance for any help, in the next couple days I am going back to his place and if he lets me I will snag a pic for you.
  24. We got back out to the scapula jacket yesterday! The jacket we put on during a lull in the blizzard held exceptionally well. Fair weather for a change this time, the rancher had been joking about inviting us over whenever his land needed some rain (every time we've shown up before we've been rained our snowed out). We took our sweet time undercutting the jacket just to be on the safe side, then got it flipped and in the car in about an hour and a half of work.
