  3. Greetings! I spent my career as a research paleontologist with the U.S. Geological Survey (Menlo Park, California) and the California Academy of Sciences (San Francisco), specializing in Cenozoic marine mollusks of the North Pacific and Arctic oceans. My summer fieldwork for 34 years was in Alaska, Siberia and northern Canada up toward the North Pole. Several times I had the indescribable thrill of being the first collector, perhaps the first human being, to visit a remote fossil site, reached by bush plane or helicopter. I was often dropped off to spend the day alone at remote sites up to 60 miles (100 kms) away. I had a number of extreme adventures, including killing an attacking grizzly with my only bullet, fending off a pack of wolves circling me, crashing in a helicopter, escaping a landslide by jumping into a passing river raft, and near-drownings in icy rivers. Of course, it was all worth it because of the fossils! My main work was documenting Cenozoic faunal and climate changes in the Arctic. However, my most notable accomplishment was solving the age-old mystery of Bering Strait’s age, which was featured on the cover of Nature. Most satisfying was discovering an unnamed river in remotest Alaska and naming it the Spirit River. I’m happy to say that my friend Warren Allmon, Director of the Paleontological Research Institution, wrote, “This memoir is a can’t-put-down page-turner, equal parts Jack London and Marincovich’s idol Roy Chapman Andrews. It is not just a rip-roaring adventure story; it also eloquently communicates both the intellectual thrill of scientific discovery and the emotional (and spiritual) energy derived from genuine exploration in some of the most challenging — and beautiful — environments on Earth.” He and other reviewers commented on the laugh-out-loud humor in my book. My book won a Bronze Medal in the Adventure category of a national book contest, and it has become an Amazon #1 Best Seller in its category. Reviews of my memoir are on Amazon.com and Goodreads.com I hope that fossil enthusiasts here enjoy reading about my adventures and research. My web site at www.loumarincovich.com has an array of photos from my fieldwork days and a list of my larger publications. Lou

    Hi, I'm sorry the first photos didn't come out but I needed the youth to help me out As i said, I was in contact with someone from Russia who has said he dug fossils of mammoths and he had some mammoth teeth for sale. He sent me photos of which I enclosed one . I was just curious as the quality of these fossils were amazing. I just question if these are truly 10000 year old fossils dug from the permafrost. Can you just advise if you feel this is a true mammoth fossil.
  15. Mammoth tooth

    HI, I am new to fossil collecting and I wanted a mammoth tooth for my office. Through the internet , I contacted a fellow in Russia who claimed to have dug mammoth fossils . He sent me some photos. I'm no expert , but this looks fresh to me . I asked are you sure this is a 10,000 year old fossil and not from a modern day elephant and possibly from poaching . His reply was that the permafrost is an excellent preservative and they had found animals with skin and hair . What is your opinion.

Prelude to the extinction: revision of the Achchagyi–Allaikha and Berelyokh mass accumulations of mammoth.

Among these, the increase of snow cover and stronger spring floods were very notable. Bølling warming is a model of the large-scale Holocene event. Mass death of mammoths during the Bølling phase was a prelude to their final extinction." Also, there is: Nikolskiy, P.A., Sulerzhitsky, L.D. and Pitulko, V.V., 2011.

  20. Hi, this is my first time posting as I am new to the forum. I am considering buying a Woolly Mammoth Tusk for Christmas, but I do not know how to know if it is a real or a good quality item. Would you all be able to provide your guidance? It says cracks near the base have been filled with glue. It says it is the tip of a larger tusk. It says it is 23" long, circumference is 8" and weighs 4 pounds. It says the species is Mammuthus Primigenius (woolly mammoth), location Belovo, Kemerovo oblast, southwestern Siberia in Russia, Age 22,000 years old. Also, if you could provide names of good quality honest vendors that sell in the US that would be great.
  21. Triassic Siberian Ceratite

    Dear members of The Fossil Forum, I am busy on the identification of all the fossils in my collection, but some fossils are causing trouble, one of which I will show here. It is 23mm. The name tag says it is an Arctohungarites sp. but in my opinion the umbilicus is too big for Arctohungarites. It looks more like Nordophiceras but I do not know if the fastigate venter is common for that genus. It might very well be neither of these genuses, my knowledge on Siberian ceratites is very limited. The findspot is Northern Siberia, but where exactly is not stated. I know of two sites, Cape Tsvetsov and the Olenek river, does the preservation of this ammonite point at one of these two? The age of the ceratite is said to be Middle Triassic, which means Anisian-Ladinian, although most of the siberian triassic ammonites are Olenekian in age. Apparently Arctohungarites is an Anisian genus, but I am not sure that this ammonite is an Arctohungarites. So my questions are: What Genus and species is this ceratite? Where does it come from? What age is it? Is there anyone who can shed light onto this ceratite and help me? Thanks in advance, Sander
