  1. Hi! I'm 24 hours "new" to the forum and am so excited to part of it. I'm a full time mommy to two small children and former elementary school teacher. My family and I live in Chino Hills, Ca (Monterey and Puente Formation). There are about 65 known prehistoric sites in Chino Hills and some pretty cool fossil discoveries made. So, for fun, the kiddos and I started digging in our backyard. We also like to hike and explore the hilly State Park in our back yard. We've found some interesting things, that have left us with many questions. The first are 3 different bones we found in our backyard. I took them to a local Veterinarian to confirm they were in fact animal. They also confirmed, they were not domestic (meaning dog or cat ie:pet) and are very old. Possibly a Patella and phalanges ( belonging to two different varieties/animals)??? Also attached are two Bivalves , I found after digging about 1ft down in my backyard (one is possibly Mytilus californianus, unsure of the other). I live approximately 20 miles inland from the ocean...so this is quite puzzling to me. Lastly, at about 800-900 ft elevation in Chino Hills State Park, we came across lots of sandstone shale that was exposed after heavy rains. I think I see a small bug type fossil in one of the rocks I found...not entirely sure though?! Also lots of amber colored sap like substance and polished, shiny marble like material throughout. Any thoughts or feedback would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance :0)
  2. Patella?

    Found this at guana park (between ponte Vedra and st Augustine) on the beach. I showed it to an orthopedic surgeon/fossil expert I know and he thought it might be a sloth patella. I honestly don't know. I also found a nice shark's tooth in the same area. I'm pretty sure it's a great white.
  3. proboscidean patella?

    I found this in pleistocene river gravel on the Brazos River. There are a lot of references to patellae on the forum, but it seems this bone is often confused with carpals. So, I'm looking for confirmation that this is either a mammoth or mastodon patella or carpal. I'm leaning toward patella from what I've seen so far. It measures 6.5in X 4.25in X 2.75in. Thanks for looking!
  4. Another foot bone? patella?

    More questions gang...So I picked up this specimen about a year and half ago and had set it aside and was just going thru Frank Kocsis Jr.'s Vertebrate Fossils: A Neophyte's Guide looking for turtle pictures this week. In flipping thru the photos looking for turtles pictures I saw his shot of a Rhino patella and went Oh, I think I got something similar--anyone else have these weird kinds of flashbacks?? So I found it and set it on the page next to the photo and it coincidentally has the same dimensions and general look. About 2 1/2" square and a little over 1 inch thick. So then I looked at some more carpal and tarsals bones and went well I'm definitely not sure and as I have no experience and it has it has enough dings and apparent damage along with some borings but strangely it has some apparent pores around the edges. I then looked for another photo of an anterior and posterior view of a Rhino patella and found a May 2013 thesis A New Species of Teleoceras from the Late Miocene Gray Fossil Site, with Comparisons to Other North American Hemphillian Species, East Tennessee State University and it shows a couple grooves/convexities and my specimen has a groove also. So I'm still not any smarter and hoping the photos will allow someone to say yep another unknown worn bone or maybe something identifiable...thanks all for the looks and any replies. Regards, Chris
