  1. A curious Tooth

    Found last week in a "mixture" environment that has Pleistocene and Miocene fossils, more of the latter. Curious because the root end (photo #1) seems to have an odd dentine, cementum circular pattern. Curious because the tip (photo #2) seems to have a narrow enamel or dentine covering over a core Curious because in photo #3 , right at the break, there appear to be small "crimps" Curious because I have not seen a fossil tooth like this one. My initial reaction was canine, but incisor is a possibility. All assistance and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Jack
  2. Bone marrow crystallization? Or...pet wood?

    Hi everyone! We made another trip to the Brazos River off I10 in Texas a few days ago. One can find bones etc from the Pleistocene there. The water was up a bit, but we still found some interesting items. The most interesting thing we found was this fragment, it is kind of flat, I keep thinking rib bone. What is super interesting is what would be the interior (if it were marrow). It is white, and seems to have veins running through it. Have any of you seen anything like this, and is it possible that during fossilization crystals filled in the marrow part and that may be the original structure? Or - is it something else that I don't know of? Photo attached. And thanks!
  3. Hello, Novice here. I found these in the Peace River recently, would like assistance with their ID. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  10. Pleistocene Folkestone fossils

    Hi guys hope the photos are all right, I was wondering if anyone could help me ID these fossils, also does anyone know about the nature of the Pleistocene deposits there thanks again, will 1.bovid? 2 looks almost like lama 3.bovid? 4.bovid again? 5.lamna again? 6.horse 7.bovid x2?
  11. Inside the Hominid Vault

    Professor Lee R. Berger, prolific Paleoanthropologist known for his major role in the excavations of such new species as Australopithecus sediba and Homo naledi, has taken the pandemic downtime as an opportunity to share the contents of one of the most remarkable rooms in existence: the Witwatersrand Hominin vault. He’s been doing some short, informative lectures which I thought you guys might like to see. I’ve enjoyed them immensely, it’s not often we get to see the original fossils. Note: Prof. Berger has always been at the forefront of the push for open access and free flow of information, but it is important to remember he (like all scientists and especially paleoanthropologists) holds some bias and views which differ from others in the field. http://www.wits.ac.za/news/latest-news/research-news/2020/human-origins/
  12. I recovered these osteoderm fossils from a small gravel mining prospect off the Nueces River in Live Oak county, Texas about 50 miles from Corpus Christi and the Gulf of Mexico. Deweyville Formation fluviatile terrace deposits of Pleistocene to Holocene age. I am thinking giant armadillo, Holmesina, and some kind of crocodile. Thanks for your information, I found these over a decade ago.
  13. Giant Beaver Molar Peeling

    I recently purchased a pack of gravel from Florida filled with Miocene and Pleistocene fossils. Among the fossils was a giant beaver molar. I rinsed it off with water, left it to dry and came back to find that has started to peel. Has this happened to anyone before? How would you recommend consolidating the tooth so that it stops peeling? I have tried to use Butvar before but I have never seemed to get the right ratio to protect the fossil while avoiding the shine. Would you recommend dunking the entire tooth in the solution or to apply some using a dropper or paint brush? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Mammal rib

    I know rib bones are very difficult to identify. So I hope someone is up for the challenge. My best guess is deer. Brazos river find.
  15. horse (Equus) cannon bone

    From the album BONES

    Left metacarpal II ("cannon bone") of an equus horse, with fused metacarpal IV ("splint bone"). Recovered in Dixie County, Florida. Pleistocene.

  16. Fossil bone or interestingly shaped jasper?

    Hello everyone, I found this in Washington State, Pleistocene, near Mason County. Suggestive piece of jasper or fossil bone? And I apologize for not using metric. I couldn't find my other measurer... Your thoughts would be appreciated. Chris
  17. Bison?

    First,I hope I’m not doing this wrong, but had trouble posting in Fossil ID for some reason. I hunt a several mile portion of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, Ok. I’ve previously gotten help with identification from the University of Oklahoma on a number of Bison bones, vertebrae and horns, as well as bones from smaller vertebrates. However, that’s a lengthy process, so I was hoping for suggestions on what this bone may have belonged to. It’s shiny because it’s been coated with clear enamel. I’ve had it for several years, but it just occurred to me that it’s dissimilar to my other Bison bones. Obviously, there was some deterioration before it began to mineralize, and one end is missing which makes it very hard to ID. Any help or suggestions is much appreciated! I can take and add more photos if anyone wants, just let me know what angles, etc. Thanks!
  18. West mersea Pleistocene fossils

    Hi guys, these teeth are most likely Pleistocene due to the presence of glacial deposits at the top of this beach, the teeth are also heavily mineralised so although teeth found here could be modern, these should be fossilised 1.partial horse? 2.massive horse no idea to species 3.?
  19. Hey everyone! Hope this finds you well and safe! I have had this Woolly Mammoth hair for a while now, but I’m wondering if it’s genuine? It states it was from Taimyr, Siberia. Any response is appreciated! Thanks!
  20. A fun article, from the good old, pre-COVID-19 epoch, that I could not find previously posted. I have to apologize somehow to 2019 for all of the bad things that said about it. Mammoth tooth discovered at Holmes County’s Inn at Honey Run (Millersburg, Ohio) Times Reporter, Aug 18, 2019 https://www.timesreporter.com/news/20190818/mammoth-tooth-discovered-at-holmes-countys-inn-at-honey-run Rare Mammoth Tooth found on the grounds of The Inn The inn at Honey Run, Millersburg, Ohio, August 7, 2019 https://www.innathoneyrun.com/rare-mammoth-tooth-grounds-inn/ yours, Paul H.
  21. SMR Triplofusus

    I assume this is a Triplofusus giganteus. I found it at the now closed SMR shell pit (Schroder-Manatee Ranch’s Aggregates) near Sarasota, Florida. I was wondering if this is the Pliocene version or the Pleistocene version? Are they different subspecies? I know this isn't the best one in the world, but it's nice. My gf wants it so badly, but I told her this one stays in my collection because it's from a site that's closed forever. I'm trying to find a substitute for her to make her happy. She wanted the long spindly one and she argued with me that I had plenty of shells already when I said no! So you see what I'm up against! Lol I have one other that would pass for this one, but of course it came from a shell pit that's been closed too! Could you help out a poor fellow fossil hunter like me? haha!
  22. I'm trying to ID this horse tooth from Peace River, Florida. Looks like a subhypsodont. My best guess is Merychippus, but please let me know what you think.
  23. A Fish skull and an unusual bone.

    Out hunting a couple of days ago, finding big bones including this one.That sharp angle is unusual for a large mammal, and that joint is mostly unbroken, and once again unusual. Hopefully someone will recognize. In the same sieve, what seems to be a fish skull, amazing quality. I have found many small fish skulls, almost always broken, none look like this one. Any insights appreciated!!! Is this typical of fish? Would the fish be 10 inches? Are those eye sockets in photo #1? I that fossilized brain material in photo #2. You can detect from my questions that I know almost nothing about fossilized fish skulls..
  24. SE Texas tooth ID

    With extra time on my hands I'm trying to ID some of my miscellaneous finds. I found this small tooth many years ago. It's about 27 mm long, just over an inch. Generally I find terrestrial, pleistocene, occasionally pliocene or miocene. @Harry Pristis @PrehistoricFlorida
  25. Hi all, I had a fairly productive first outing to Westmoreland State Park but I have no idea what any of the fossils I found are. I am happy to provide close-ups of any of the individual fossils, and in addition to the photos here, I posted some to imgur to get around the size restriction here. https://imgur.com/gallery/2uIedQS Thanks for your help!
