  1. History Hunter02's Collection

    Hey everyone! This is my collection of fossils! I have too many collections of stretched from Boy Scout memorabilia to American coins. Most of my fossils are from Pennsylvania and South Carolina. The ones from South Carolina are mostly from the Pleistocene Epoc, while the ones from up north are from the Pennsylvanian period. Mammalian fossils are my favorite especially when I find some awesome teeth! Pictures will be coming over time! All of these are ones that I have found. None have been bought.
  2. Hi again! As like Jaguar,which I posted few minutes ago,now it's time for Leopard! I drew him also few years ago in the same time as Jaguar.It's a late Pleistocene European Cave Leopard,found also in Serbia . If anyone is interested let me know! Hope you will enjoy with these two cats! Darko
  3. Hi everyone! I found one of my older drawings today, it's a Pleistocene North American Jaguar! One of my favorite Prehistoric cats.If anybody is interested feel free to send me message Darko

  5. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dying to go hunting myself. Maybe the Chalk sediments 3 km from my home would be a good place to start! For the rest, my job, my major hobby and my other main interest besides fossils are living animals. I currently work as the head of terrarium & aquarium in 3 different pet stores and I have quite a collection of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and tropic fish myself. In my spare time I often take my own living animals along with my fossils and other educational natural history material to schools so I can teach kids about nature and it's history and hidden mechanics. For the rest are my other hobbies mainly based around movies and televisions as I collect a lot of stuff drom my favorite franchises like "Lord or the Rings" & "The Hobbit", "Game of Thrones, "Pirates of the Caribbean", ... And I also attent a lot of comic cons and other events related to those franchises. But then this topic! In this topic I will show my collection of fossils (and also minerals, stones and meteorites) as it is right now and then I will highlight each group of fossils bit by bit. I am currently starting with a own specialized fossil room, so ofcourse the progress and end result will also be posted here! And ofcourse when something get's added to my collection, I'll show it here as well. Sometimes a photo of my "special" pets or taxidermy specimens might pop up, but this topic will mainly be about the fossil room and my fossil collection. For the rest, if you have any comments or questions about the collection or about me or about anything, feel free to ask! I'd love to reply!
  6. Fossil horns?

    Dear TFF members, I have bought these two on an auction - the seller says they were found in the sands of the Vistula river, in the area of Kraków (south of Poland). Could they be fossilised horns? I will appreciate any suggestions Kasia
  7. Up to this point (over the last five years or so), all my local fossil hunting has been done in the Pennsylvanian of the Kansas City area. Recently, however, I visited a sand bar on the Kansas River some 20 miles West of Kansas City. I found one item of interest. I suspect that it may be modern, although I'm hoping, of course, that it is Pleistocene. Any ID help regarding age and animal will be welcome. I know it is quite worn, so I won't be surprised if "yep, it's a bone" is all that can be said. What do you think?

  10. Some kind of Echinoderm?

    Need help to identify the following fossil. It was found in Milos, preserved in volcanoclastic sediment and diatomite. Data from a study in the area suggest late pliocene to early pleistocene. Looks like an echinoderma, but unlike any I've ever seen, since it's test appears to have layers and no apparent mouth (unless it's on the bottom part). I have even considered it being a cystoid or some coral, but I haven't had any luck researching my theories. Units on the pic with the ruler are cm and size is about 4.5cm. Any suggestion would be much appreceated!
  11. Pleistocene mammals

    Hey everyone! It has been a while since I've posted here some of my drawings. Here is something new,Coelodonta antiquitatis (Woolly rhino), Mammuthus primigenius (Mammoth) and Ursus spelaeus (Cave bear). P.s. If maybe someone is interested in some of my drawings,let me know. Enjoy
  12. Pleistocene Fosssil Hunt!

    My girlfriend Ashley and I got out to hunt some Pleistocene sites a couple days ago. There are also Eocene sharks teeth mixed in. The rivers are all pretty high, so we went to some bank hunting sites I have found over the years. They definitely did not disappoint! We found a Tapir jaw section, horse tooth, some pretty big alligator teeth, and a variety of other fossils!

  16. Hi guys have this bone fragment from The Caloosahatchee Formation of South West Florida Late Pliocene/Early Pleistocene. I know it is small and perhaps unidentifiable as it is a fragment but wanted to throw ir out there. Have a few more bones will post shortly.

    A 2.5 cm long Notorynchus primigenius, which I found at the beach "Zwarte Polder" (near Cadzand). This is a quite rare find for a beach find!!

  20. Fish/Reptile Skull Fragment?

    Collected from Galveston bay dredge spoils, late Pleistocene Beaumont formation. First thought was gar skull fragment but it lacks the central suture line evident in online photos. Hoping someone here might recognize it.
  21. Carcharadon hastalis.

    From the album Pleistocene and Miocene fossils

    A 2.5 cm long Carcharadon hastalis. tooth from Antwerp/Hoevenen.
  22. Hello! I´m learning more about earlier mammoth species, and have some questionmarks when it comes to mammoth meridionalis. Most of the literature says that the specie lived between 2,5 - 1,5 million years ago. But I´ve been in contact with a seller, and this seller claims that there were meridionalis mammoths living in Hungary between 800.000 - 1.000.000 years ago. The seller also said that meridionalis fossils they´ve found/bought from north sea have sometimes been between 1.000.000 - 1.500.000 years old. The fact that the information is so different, have made me pretty confused. And I´m also questioning the fact that I haven´t found a more detailed story of the actual extinction of the specie? It´s a very trustful team of sellers I´m talking about, and I´ve been buying several fossils from them and haven´t been given any reason to not trust them so far. But since there is a gap of fivehundred thousand years, at least, I still want to reach out for the opinion of others. Because now I don´t really know what to think.. Ps. I´m thankful for any little details you can give me!
  23. help with medial phalanx

    Hello all. I found this years ago in north Florida river. Finally getting around to asking for some help. Any ideas on species? Thank you.
  24. Somniosus microcephalus

    From the album Pleistocene and Miocene fossils

    A 1 cm long very rare upper tooth of Somniosus microcephalus from a sand pit near Antwerp.
  25. Iowa Mandible (Deer?)

    Hello! I found this mandible yesterday in a creek in Linn County, IA. It reminds me of a modern whitetail deer, but I'm not sure. One thing that stands out to me is that the middle tooth has three labial lobes. I have a modern whitetail doe adult to compare it too (see last picture), but only the end tooth has three labial lobes. Does that mean this isn't a whitetail deer or is that normal genetic variation? Total length of mandible (broken): 83 mm Thickness of mandible: 19 mm Width of tallest tooth: 20 mm Thickness of tallest tooth: 9.4 mm Thanks! @Harry Pristis
