  1. Modern Stinky Bones

    I can't remember if I brought this subject up before or not. During last years storms I gathered some bones (modern) along the beach that were washed ashore. I would like to find a way to clean out the stench from the rotting marrow so they can be displayed indoors without suffering the vomitous gagging from the smell. I have had them "airing out" in a field for almost a year and Mr. Stink just won't go away. I believe taxidermist usually boil out the marrow to clean bones, but these are a bit too big to fit a boiling pot. I was contemplating soaking them in a diluted bleach solution to hopefully take the smell away. Any thoughts from the peanut gallery? I live in a small apartment so any large scale operation is somewhat out of the question. Have any of our illustrious peers out there had much practice with cleaning modern bone?
  2. Modern bovine bone?

    Hello, please help me identify this bone. I believe it is bovine because I have found numerous modern bovine teeth (most likely cow) in the river where I hunt for fossils. Any idea on what bone it is? The bone is about 5 inches long. I can provide more pictures if needed. Thank you!
  3. Hi all, As well as being a great fossil enthusiast, I also love finding modern remains of life and nature. Like a few of you already know, I am also quite fond of seashells (fossil seashells are one of my favorite things). Minerals also interest me, though I don't know much about them. And anything else to do with nature will get me interested. I just came back yesterday from some fantastic holidays in Greece, and didn't come back empty-handed! At first, we stayed for a few days at one of our friend's house on the Greek island Paros. Then, we spent one night in Athens to visit the famous Acropolis, before spending a few days at Gerolimenas, a small village at the tip of the Mani peninsula (Peloponnese). Finally we stayed two nights in Nafplio, in the north of the Peloponnese, and then returned to the cold and rainy Netherlands. Surely holidays to remember! Of course, I was constantly looking around for fossils, seashells, and other things, enjoying the slightly nerdy activities we all here enjoy so much. Though no fossils were found, I did find a few other things. Here are my different hauls! Chapter 1: Paros Paros is a lovely, typically Greek island, in the Aegean sea. The first few days here, having visited several different beaches, I found nearly nothing. Then one day, after having eaten a delicious grilled squid, I strolled on the beach, and bingo! Seashells everywhere! I quickly grabbed a plastic bag and filled it up with little treasures. I was really stunned by the beautiful Noah's Ark shells. That was the only beach where I made finds, but the finds were so great that it was enough to leave the place with good memories and happy hands. Total haul (things on top are not seashells, but other miscellaneous things): Some of my favorites: A small Diodora graeca: A very nice Haliotis mykonosensis: A beautiful Neverita josephina: A touch-looking crab claw: Some cool pink-red urchin spines: A small but stunning Arca noae:
  4. ID for Sponge

    Found this sponge on the beach in Beach Haven, NJ. Wondering if anyone could tell me if its modern or Pleistocene (I ask bc I have heard of Pleistocene fossils being found off of NJ's coastline Two more angles
  5. Modern deer skull

    Hi all, Purchased this today at a flea market at a very low price (10€ = more or less 10$!). My first big skull in my collection, I'm very happy with it. It's a kind of deer skull, and all the teeth are in great condition. The seller had it in his room since 18 years, and therefore doesn't know anymore where it comes from (though it's probably somewhere in Europe). Anyone know the exact deer species of the skull? Best regards, Max
  6. Hi all, Today at a flea market I purchased a small handful of shells found on the Kaloot (NL), where you can find fossil sharkteeth as well as fossil seashells (and other fossils). He assured me that at least some (if not all) are fossils, which is true: the Pliothyrina in the middle is extinct, so it has to be a fossil; and many of the astartes on the bottom seem to be fossilized too. But I'm not sure that all the shells are fossilized. Therefore I was wondering, does anyone know how to separate fossil shells from modern ones? Best regards, Max
  7. ID: Modern bones

    Hi all, I found these (modern) bones on one of the beaches of the Cape of Good Hope (South Africa). All three bones were found about 3-5 m apart, so there is a chance that they come from the same animal. We have a rib, a vertebrae, and a jaw (missing the teeth). Anyone have a clue on the ID? Thanks in advance, Max
  8. Modern or fossil shark tooth

    I found this his big tiger shark tooth at a local rock shop today. The tag says Eocene but no location info is provided and the store worker had no idea. It looks modern, but the enamel has chipped back a bit as if fossilized. Was wondering what you guys thought? cheers!
  9. Found this yesterday in Peace River. I think it's a fossil, but may be modern. Didn't know how long to wait to do flame test. I think it is an incisor but really just guessing. What do you think?
  10. Fossil on igneous rock?

    I know nothing of the real provenance of this specimen. It was found near a house here in western Missouri where everything is either Pennsylvanian or Quarternary--there is no igneous rock in the area. I have three questions about it. First, is it a fossil or is it modern? Second, is the rock on which the specimen rests igneous? Third, is it a forgery—something made for a novelty shop? Any answers or comments you can give will be appreciated. Russ
  11. fossil or modern?

  12. Modern Or Fossil? What Is It?

    This question may make me seem dumb, but I can't figure it out and I feel especially slow tonight.... I just got back from a trip to Brownie's Beach/Bayfront Park Maryland, in the Calvert Cliffs Region and I found this bone/fossil. Can anyone tell if it is modern or a fossil? What do you think it is from? I have a guess, but would like to hear what others think first, without biasing them.
