  1. Virginia mammal tooth

    Hello! i recently found a small, broken mammal molar. The occlusal surface is worn flat partially, this maybe difficult to see from the photos, it seems small to be an older pig, but pig was my first guess. If that is correct I guess it would most likely not be a “fossil”, although it seems to have some qualities consistent with mineralization. Is it conceivably human, about the same size and in better shape than some of mine! Very curious find for me and probably obvious for some members. thanks for your time!
  2. Medium Mystery bone

    Hello I’m posting this for my dad, he bought this piece years ago and he’s having trouble remembering what it is. He says he thinks he got a pig bone ( maybe a hell pig), I’ve also been told it could be a turtle from a friend? It has some nice transition colours and could be a leg or arm bone? Any help would be appreciated thanks!
  3. Mammal teeth GMR

    Hi all! I'm hoping for some insight. I found two mammal teeth at GMR today and I am not 100% sure what they are. I was thinking peccary or deer. Assistance is appreciated.
  4. My Collection

    Hello Everyone! I am new to collecting over the past several weeks and have been able to obtain several fossils of recent and would like to show you all what I have collected. First one will be my Struthy Claw.
  5. My Collection

    Hello All, I am new to collecting fossils but would like to show you all some of my specimens. Hope you all enjoy. First one will be my Struthy claw. IMG_0164.HEIC IMG_0165.HEIC
  6. Animal hoof?

    I am trying to identify this animal part. It appears to be the outer cover of a hoof. Can someone confirm that and tell me what animal it is likely from?
  7. Curiosity Killed The Newbie...

    I would love input as to what this tooth may be. Found in the St. John's river (actually my toes found it). The folds and whatnot just piqued my curiosity as I have never seen a tooth like this. It's small and flat and I can only guess it came from a mammal. Any help is greatly appreciated.
