  1. Identify this?

    I inherited this tooth, or claw from my grandfather. I have no idea what it is. I'm just looking for help identifying it. Thoughts?
  2. Hog Wild

    There are no wild hogs, supposedly, in Minnesota. Could this be from a domestic hog or something else all together? Found on river gravel bar in southern Minnesota.
  3. Mammoth tusk or petrified wood.

    Hello every one. I need help with these objects I recently found on my folks place in north east Texas. I believe it appears to be tusk. first I thought it was just petrified wood but I don’t know. The more I excavate the site the more that more pieces I find. I would greatly appreciate the advice and opinions. Thanks again.
  4. Help Identifying - Tusk?

    Hi- we are new to this forum and have great interest in finding out what we picked up this weekend after Hurricane Dorian on the beach in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We actually drove from Ohio Friday night to look for sharks teeth and came home with a few (nothing sizely this visit) and this piece of what we believe to be fossilized tusk.
  5. Claims of a mammoth tusk...

    Posting for an acquaintance. Someone claims this is a mammoth tusk, and they're 100% certain. I'm not so sure. I've seen mammoth tusks in museums, and up close and personal digging one out of the dirt. I don't remember longitudinal striations like this object has. Can anyone tell me what it might really be? Or confirm if it's actually a segment of a mammoth tusk? Best pictures I've got, 3rd party source.
  6. Ok so today I went shark tooth hunting and I came across what to me looks like a tusk or horn of some sort. I honestly have no clue. Anyone else know what this might be? They’re about the size of a penny.
  7. Mammoth tusk fragment

    From the album Macro Florida Fossils

  8. Hello, I found this diving off of Venice Beach, FL in about 25 feet of water. It is about 88mm x 38 mm. To me it looks like a piece of a tusk. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks!
  9. Whale Tooth? Tybee Island South Carolina

    I found this tooth last year, and finally decided I wanted to find out what it was. My guide told me it was a tusk from a saber toothed tiger? But I think it more strongly resembles a whale tooth. Found on Tybee Island South Carolina
  10. I will soon be attempting to recover a mammoth tusk in Florida. Is in a creek bank with an end exposed and appears to be like most Florida tusks... crumbly. I'm hoping maybe the buried portion will be sturdier than the exposed. I havent messed with it since finding it. Just wanting to pregame the recovery. It thoughts comments concerns and suggestions are welcome.
  11. Teeth ID (solved : horse incisors)

    Need help identifying these teeth/tusks (4cm long) I found in Rhodes (Greece). Since the area was a landslide caused by waters flowing over different layers of sediment (clay, marl, sandstone) the resulting mix contained both sea (shells) and land (pine cone impressions) fossils I cannot give a clear estimate of age, just place it somewhere within the upper Pliocene - lower Pleistocene boundaries.
  12. Do I have a tusk fragment?

    Found this in the Peace River, Florida. It looks different than any of the countless bone fragments I’ve collected in the past. Looking at photos online I feel like I have a good chance of this being the outer layer of a tusk! Any thoughts?
  13. I'm trying to identify the polished fossil material in this Georgian English snuffbox, circa 1760 to 1820. Is it mammoth ivory? Walrus? Wood? Something else? The material is set in unhallmarked sterling silver. Thanks in advance for your suggestions. Adam
  14. Elephant tusk Indonesia

    I bought these (in Solo Indonesia), what the seller told me, to be fossils of an elephant. Now I am wondering if this is fake or real? They are heavy, sound solid, more or less kinda stone. What do you think?
  15. Hey! I have kind of an odd question. I am purchasing a fossil for a friend as a birthday gift -- between a tip of a mammoth tusk, or a section of mosasaur jaw with teeth. What makes this unique, however, is that we are traveling to the British Virgin Islands (from the United States) for said birthday and I would like to be able to gift the fossil on the birthday instead of waiting until she returns home as we live in different states and I would only be able to ship it to her house and not be there. I am concerned, however, about bringing the fossils with me on the trip as I have heard nightmares about customs causing long hold ups or seizing fossils. Does anyone have any advice on this? Thanks!
  16. Tusk Fossil

    I was out on the Neuse River this afternoon (Havelock, NC area) and found this piece. It seems to have the correct cross hatching to indicate tusk. 6 inches long 2.5 inches wide. Heavy, layers are flaking off. Is this a tusk...hopefully mammoth and if so how best to preserve. Thank you in advance!
  17. Wild Boar Tusk?

    We found this in the gravel bed of a creek today in Grayson County, TX. I'm assuming it's a wild boar tusk. What do you guys think? Is it most likely old or modern? Thanks for any help.
  18. Over the weekend a friend and I went out for a little gravel dig at a stream near Northport, Florida, that is a little north of the Peace River and close to the Gulf shore. These are the teeth and other bits and pieces I found. He found a nice meg, a nice mastodon or mammouth tooth, ( I can never remember which is which, but he knows). Mine included a 1.5 inch mako, a broken piece of shark vertebrae, several interesting turtle pieces, a small but gorgeous sand shark tooth, complete with cusps, and this bone that looks like a dugong but its edges are both sharp...when I got it home, I realized it has enamel and so is probably a tusk of some time. Can anyone fill me in as to whether it might be a tusk, or some kind of tooth. Thanks. (The sand shark tooth is about 3/4 " , the last photo is the cache of my keepers.
  19. Hello beloved forum. I could use help on a mammal incisor ID for a friend: they don't have any info on the location, other than that it is domestic to the States, unfortunately. I've ruled out Giant Beaver, and I assume it's not a baby mammoth tusk (there appears to be a slight 'bulge' in the middle). Any advice would be deeply appreciated. Please see pictures.
  20. Hello. Found in permafrost, Yakutia, Russia. I made a bet with a friend that is a mammoth Tusk, and he claims it's not a Tusk! Thank you.
  21. Hi everyone, I found this in January of 2017 on Shark tooth island on the Savannah River in Georgia. Always have been curious what it is. The area has dredged material and contains fossils from the Miocene, Pliocene, and Pleistocene. It is slightly conical and symmetrical, uniform, and ovalish in cross section - straight in profile with no discernible curvature. In profile, one side is smoother and striated, the other coarser, dimpled, with elevated black speckles. It is not porous inside like other bones from the area. It appears to have schreger lines. I'm not sure if it is some sort of tusk, but I havn't seen other tusks without some degree of curvature. Overcast day here in Seattle. If photos aren't clear enough I'll upload some others on a sunny day. Thanks!
  22. fossil found on Wrightsville Beach NC

    I found this fossil on Wrightsville Beach North Carolina 10/19/18-- It feels like a tusk or a tooth....and it feels solid. Any ideas on what it might be?
  23. I believe its some kind of tusk.
  24. Hello all, I am in the process of restoring 2 beige mammoth tooth, but before going on with a butvar dip, I was wondering if anyone has a good tip in order to enhance the natural colors of fossils. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  25. Hi everyone- I have a juvenile mammoth tusk that I would like to learn how to stabilize and restore. The problem is I have (almost) no idea how to even start! The tusk is fully dried out, but it’s split down the middle. I need some advice! Here’s what I know has to be done: 1. Clean the outside and inside as much as possible without using water- any suggestions on what to use? 2. Superglue the two pieces together and use hose clamps to hold the two pieces together- any suggestions on glue/method? 3. Fill gaps/cracks with epoxy- any suggestions on a good type? 4. Sand sand sand! 5. Beyond this point I’m not sure- is there some sort of protective varnish people use? I’m sure I’m missing about a dozen crucial steps here- I have literally never tried anything like this before, so any advice would be greatly appreciated. I posted some photos of the tusk, and I will post photos of progress! Thanks everyone.
