  1. Petrosal for ID

    I found this petrosal on a South Carolina beach near Charleston. I would love to know the animal it belonged to. Is it cetacean @Boesse by any chance? Thanks for looking. Scale is CM.
  2. Hoof core

    This looks like a very small hoof core of a horse. Any way to know if it’s from a baby horse, three toed Miocene horse or maybe even tapir?
  3. Osteoderm

    I’ve found several osteoderm of glyptodon and giant armadillo but this one seems a little different. Could it be sloth?
  4. Hi, I acquired this tooth a couple days ago and was wondering if anyone could confirm that it is fully authentic, I don’t really have reason to believe it’s faked, or restored, the root just looks odd... I’m thinking it’s just odd preservation, because 1. I’ve never seen a restored bear canine that’s not museum quality, and 2. I’d think it would be completely restored too museum or near museum quality. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Bone Daddy@PODIGGER. TIA, I appreciate all thoughts!
  5. Mammal mandible for ID

    I recently found this nice, if toothless mandible on a S.C. beach. I spent some time trying to compare it with other examples, but am left guessing. It does not compare well with the skunk jawbone that I do have. The alveoli do not line up, so I am wondering about raccoon or opossum ... any help would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.
  6. Pleistocene Radius Bone?

    Greetings I found this bone in a river valley in Northeast British Columbia. It was fairly close to where I found some horse and bison fossils earlier (shown below). I have not been able to ID it so far. My Buddy from the Yukon suggested it might be a radius bone from a predator. Doesn't look like a cat, wolf or bear. It is river worn and when I shake it there is material rattling around inside. We have snow on the ground so my fossil hunting days are over for this year. Sad days. Any help would be appreciated. Best Regards Rob
  7. Fossil Jaw FL ?

    Found this suspect item inland Venice, FL. Mostly Pleistocene material within 100 yards: sloth, megs, dugong...Lots of clay and limestone in this site. Some material not totally mineralized. When cleaning item, fiberous material revealed. Unsure if it is a fossil or not. Jaw shaped?
  8. Proboscidean humerus

    I dug up this distal (I think) humerus today on the Brazos River. I wasn’t sure what I had when I first started digging. By the second picture I knew it was something special. Is there any way to differentiate between mammoth and mastodon humerus? @Harry Pristis @Uncle Siphuncle @fossilus I’m happy to provide additional pics if needed.

  10. Need help prepping!

    Guys, please tell me how to prepare a mastodon tooth and jaw that was excavated within the past two weeks. It is already starting to dry out and crack. I need help from what I need to do to stabilize, to clean, and to make it look like museum quality. The bones are so fragile and are starting to crack and crumble.

    Tiny Dallarca elnia next to the head of a sewing pin from the Pliocene/Pleistocene micro matrix of the Nutrien Aurora/Lee Creek Phosphate Mine in Auora, North Carolina These got much, MUCH bigger!

    Discoporella ? Pliocene/Pleistocene from Aurora Fossil Museum micro matrix Aurora, North Carolina Thanks to @Al Dente for the ID
  14. So Many Minis!

    From the album Aurora/Lee Creek Mine Micro Matrix

    This assemblage came from one cup (about 340 ml) of micro matrix from Aurora Fossil Museum. Oddly, they are generally much larger than most of what I found in the rest of the matrix. They are all from either the Pliocene or Pleistocene. See album description.

  18. Another Pleistocene Leg Bone?

    Greetings All I was hiking about 1km from where I found a Paleo Horse Metacarpal last week (Thanks so much for the rapid ID!!) when I found this in the gravel. It appears to be a leg bone but I have not been able to ID it so far. It is a little beat up and weathered but I hope someone can help me figure out what it is. Any help would be appreciated. Best Regards Rob
  19. Is this a fossil?

    I have here a polar bear tooth from St. Lawrence, Alaska. I was told it was fossilized, Pleistocene to be precise. The seller had other similar teeth available on offer, in darker shades, claiming they were all fossilized and simply preserved in different ways. Ultimately, I chose this one. As far as the literature goes, it has been argued that the polar bear does go back to the late Pleistocene: Ingólfsson, Ólafur; Wiig, Øystein (2009). "Late Pleistocene fossil find in Svalbard: the oldest remains of a polar bear (Ursus maritimus Phipps, 1744) ever discovered". Polar Research. 28 (3). doi:10.3402/polar.v28i3.6131 I know coloration is not the ideal determination of fossilization, and yet I also read that the burn test wouldn't work on a tooth. Is there, then, any way to confirm if this is fossilized?
  20. Bone

    My son and I found this at McFaddin Beach southwest of Port Arthur Texas. We think it may be fossilized bone based the sticky tongue test. We are amateurs at fossil identification... So any help on confirming or correcting would be appreciated. From what I understand fossils from the pleistocene era are common along this beach. It was found near a very large area of gray clay.
  21. Pleistocene Leg Bone?

    Greetings Found this bone in the gravels of a Peace River tributary (in British Columbia) yesterday while hiking. It is clearly old and appears to be a Pleistocene leg bone off some type of smaller ungulate? animal. The bone has had quite a life and has been damaged by gravel reworking. I am a Geologist and identification (if possible) is beyond me so far. Please excuse the picture quality as I am in the field. Be kind haha. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best Regards Rob
  22. Foot bone?

    This is a heavily permineralized bone. That is not in question. It was found along with many other Mammal bones likely Pleistocene. One has been identified. Another has been cut open and polished to show the inside and it is clear it is bone. This looks like some samples of foot bones I have seen. I would like to confirm it is not human and hopefully get a species.
  23. Nice bird bone from the Zandmotor

    Hi everyone! Last week I found this nice, rather big, bird bone on the Zandmotor (Netherlands). It is most likely late Pleistocene in Age (Weichselian) but could possibly be older (though I doubt this is any older than early Pleistocene, given the conservation). I believe it to be a femur of a rather large species of bird. My first thought was the great auk, Pinguinus impennis, but I think my bone is probably not sturdy/thick enough for such a heavy bird. I'm currently thinking it might be something like a large sea gull, but this is just guess work, and birds are definitely not my area of expertise. What do you guys think it might be? Also, if any of you has some kind of free identification guide/paper for bird bones (modern/fossil), could you please share it? I'll already tag @Auspex and @MarcoSr as I remember that you two have worked with bird bones before Thanks in advance for your help! Max
  24. Is This a Fossil?

    Hey everyone! I was recently fossil hunting at Bolinas in California, which is known for its fossilized sand dollars. While hunting, I found this strange piece and I'm not sure if it's a fossil or not. It's from the Merced Formation, which is from the Late Pliocene to the Pleistocene in California. I have no clue what it is, but I am looking forward to hearing if anyone on the forum does. Thanks!
  25. Came across this specimen on an Ohio Fossils group. It was apparently found in south-central Ohio (Serpent Mound area) in 1958. What’s bothering me is that it seems to be a marine pelecypod with aragonitic preservation. All of Ohio’s exposed rocks are either Paleozoic or Pleistocene, and with vanishingly few exceptions, Paleozoic aragonite is simply not preserved. I know there are mollusks in pleistocene marine concretions, notably from Newfoundland, but not in the sediments representing Pleistocene Ohio’s terrestrial&freshwater environments. This is a marine clam, and there was no marine environment in pleistocene Ohio. Nor were there marine environments producing concretionary fossils in any nearby source area for glacial debris that ended up in Ohio, as far as I am aware. Nor in any of the Ohio River’s past source areas to the south during the Pleistocene. So....is this concretion then an object moved long distances by ancient humans? Does anyone recognize the concretion as similar to ones they’ve seen in some particular Formation? Or am I way off in terms of my preservational logic? Original post: “I collected this 60+ years ago from a tributary stream to the Miami River in SW Ohio - what is it and how old? Opinions please!”
