  1. Gulf's 60,000-year-old underwater forest spills its secrets in new documentary. The Times-Picayune, June 25, 2017 Yours, Paul
  2. Collected at low tide this evening.
  3. Hi Guys, This would be the first alligator tooth that I've run across .. but it is really the deer skull fragment that I'm curious about ? I'm calling it that because that is my assumption seeing what I think is the interior of the skull with the brain impression and the lower part of the antler base ? These deposits are dredge spoil piles and have a mish-mash literally of marine and terrestrial fossils. I tossed in an image of the G. cuvier for kicks because the preservation is pretty good coming from a land site. If you need additional images let me know. For Kicks. Cheers, Brett
  4. Acquired in a trade in 1999 from a site that no longer exists.
  5. From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A view of the Zandmotor, with many gulls in the background.
  6. From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    An awesome woolly rhino molar, of the species Coelodonta antiquatis. Though the chewing surface is slightly damaged, this is so far my best Zandmotor find!
  7. From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A partial fish jaw found on the Zandmotor, with one tooth (shiny black thing). Probably from a bream (Sparidae).
  8. From the album @Max-fossils 's Zandmotor Finds

    A nice complete scallop from the Zandmotor, of good size too.
  9. I picked it up on this morning from Galveston Bay dredge spoils. Late Pleistocene. This piece kinda has the "feel" of ivory and appears to have a thin layer of enamel but It's unlike any other tooth or tusk I've found. I thought it might be a canine but the cross section isn't a bit flattened. Not at all round like other canine teeth I've looked at. Any ideas? Darrow
  10. My girlfriend, Valerie and I were visiting my aunt in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is 90 and lives in a senior residence. I wasn't planning to go fossil hunting or even thinking about fossils. However, on our last night there, we were walking in the neighborhood to burn off a few calories when I spotted a number of fossil shells in front of an apartment complex. We spent about half an hour searching the shells for complete ones in good condition- found over twenty species. Valerie got into it too and found some excellent specimens. After that we began spotting fossil shells everywhere. It's amazing how much you don't see unless you're really looking. Since this isn't our usual stomping ground- could use some ID help with these:
  11. Found this tooth a few months ago in a Texas creek. Any ideas? Thank you.
  12. What is the tiny pinecone shaped thing attached to this bit of matrix? It is rock hard and very firmly attached It is too small to get any detail with my camera. The first picture is the best I could do. I used a usb microscope to try to see more detail in the second set of pictures.
  13. Pleistocene ray, fish, salamander, frog, snake, lizard and mammal specimens from matrix from the Melbourne Bone Bed from the Indian River, Florida. I want to thank John Sacha for supplying the matrix. This matrix was basically shells with fossil specimens. This was an extremely interesting matrix to search because of the large number of mammal and small reptile specimens. It also contained a good amount of amphibian specimens which I haven’t seen before in matrix. There were marine specimens also like fish specimens but the shark teeth were pretty beat and there were only a couple of ray specimens. Julianna has made extensive posts on Merritt Island micros. This post does contain some additional/different examples of specimens from the matrix. If you mouse over the pictures you will see the file name which has the specimen size and my best effort at identification. If you can identify anything further or you see id errors please contribute to this post. Below is a gem jar display which shows some of the nicer specimens that I found. Clique the photo to see an enlarged version. The gem jar cups are 1.75 inches in diameter for size reference of the specimens. This is what is in each gem jar: 1 Lizard and snake vertebrae 2 Lizard and snake vertebrae 3 Interesting specimens that I need to id 4 Lizard jaws, mostly anole 5 Salamander vertebrae 6 Mammal teeth 7 Mammal teeth 8 Amphibian jaws (or don’t look like lizard) 9 Frog specimens 10 Mammal bones 11 Crab claw tips 12 Fish specimens (jaw fragments, teeth, scales, otoliths, and vertebrae) 13 Claws 14 Scales/Diodontid tooth plates 15 Ray tooth and barb 16 Scale/turtle shell fragments Below are some pictures of some individual specimens Ray: I found a single Dasyatis tooth: Fish: Otolith: Drum Tooth: Fish jaws/plates: Continued in the next reply. Marco Sr.
  14. I found this at Walnut Creek in Austin, Texas. Any suggestions appreciated, thanks
  15. Collected in a creek bed near Gunnedah, NSW, Australia. The sediments date back to the late Pleistocene about 52 000 years ago and contain fossils of the Australian megafauna: kangaroos, diprotodontids, marsupial lions, crocodiles, birds and various others. The bone is 75 mm long and as you can see is almost dead straight! There is a circular cross section with thick bone walls at one end and a generally circular cross section with thinner bone walls at the other end. I first thought some kind of bird limb bone, but the thick bone wall at one end didn't make sense. Now i am thinking kangaroo metatarsal but would like more opinions.
  16. Miatria's recent post regarding her nice sloth tooth ( ), got me to thinking about a piece I've had for a few years. I found it on the beach at Edisto Island, S.C. which is known for it's Pleistocene fossils. The absence of enamel and the texture reminds me of @Miatria's find. What do you think?
  17. Hi all, I have acquired this skull from Sragen, Java. Can someone confirm or ID it as a crocodylus Porosus please. I also have no idea of value if people can give me an indication that would be great. Whether for sale or insurance value as I haven't decided yet. I've given it a good look over, no restoration at all, as it came out the ground. It is 880mm long and 450mm at its widest point.

  20. This tooth came out of the mud shattered and I reassembled the pieces I had. It was found in Florida's Peace River in a mix of miocene and pleistocene material. It measures approx. 2.25" wide x 2.25" long x 3/8" thick.
  21. 2017 AURORA FOSSIL FESTIVAL AND TFF MEMBER MEET UP The 24th Annual "Aurora Fossil Festival" will be held this Friday through Sunday, May 26 - 28, 2017, in Aurora, NC. There will be a parade down Main Street at 1100 am on Saturday morning, educational displays at the Community Center from 1000 am - 4 pm Saturday, Paleontology Lectures going on throughout the day Saturday AND fresh piles of overburden from the Lee Creek Mine dumped around town, ripe and ready for screening and fossil hunting all weekend. Multiple piles of "FRESH" matrix will be near / adjacent to the Aurora Fossil Museum. There will also be a Live Fossil Auction starting at 3 pm on Saturday, lasting until........... If you have never been, you should definitely plan a trip. If you have never had the "privilege" of hunting Lee Creek Mine matrix, this is your chance for FRESH / VIRGIN material. (Items up for auction can be seen at the Aurora Fossil Museum's Facebook page, link below.) In addition, numerous TFF Members will be attending / displaying / speaking at the festival. It's a great time to put a face with the screen name. Here is what you need to know: Aurora Fossil Museum - Facebook Page and website: I will have my laptop and camera with me and will be updating this post in "semi"-real time with photos and information from the Festival. Any TFF Members at the Festival can stop by and see me on the porch of the Community Center and I will let you use the camera and laptop to log in and post your own photos / info. If you see someone walking around in a T Rex costume, that should be Mrs. SailingAlongToo. For those Members who can't make it, check back on this post regularly on Saturday for the updates. I for one am looking forward to Dr. Perez's talk on Cookiecutter Sharks!!!! Hope to see / meet as many TFF Members as possible!!! Cheers, Jack
  22. Hi all, I was looking through my bones from the Zandmotor today, when I saw this one. It seems to have quite a weird shape, so maybe it is a complete bone? I'm not that good with mammal anatomy, you out there are probably better than me. Found on the Zandmotor, Netherlands, aged from the Pleistocene, most probably from a mammal. So my question is, is there anything else to say about this fossil, or is it just a worn piece of bone? Thanks, Max
  23. I found this a couple of days ago. This is a rare fossil for me -- only my 2nd Camel canine. I figured I would share with those who had not previously although Nate seems to have quite a few available, I am posting to find out a couple of things. How do experts differentiate between a tooth from Palaeolama Mirafica and Hemiauchenia macrocephala ? Are wolf teeth in camels upper or lower (Yes) jaws? There is a wear mark on the inside of this tooth. Does that positively identify position. Thanks in any assistance in typing the description that goes with this find. Jack
  24. Out hunting today. A relative disaster. I forgot to bring paddle for my kayak and thus reduced the time we had to fossil hunt and increase the pain in my muscles. For all those who have not tried, paddling with a shovel is NOT an efficient means of transport. I did find an unusual fossil so 3 photos and an old TFF thread may help in Identification.
