Did you perform the burn test?

My answer.

 

I found the bone in a deeper chamber of the cave.

Well it's definitely a left femur. Though from what animal I don't know. And it looks like it could potentially be recent. So as Kane said, using the burn test might help.

I trust this forum less and less:(

 

Subfossils bones can also burn, after all

Wait what?

I told you what type of bone it is. And I don't know how old it is. And as Tidgy's Dad points out the burn test can help finding out how old the bone could be. How does that make you trust the forum less?

Napoleon North,

 

Does not look fossilized to me... the bone ressembles more the bone of an animal living in our period.

Sorry you are losing trust in the fossil forums even if I don't know why,after all the fossil forums is created for us to give advice and clues to the person who posted the picture wanted to be identified.The messages being send are full of information to help you.

Regards.

Two questions
1. This shop is jaws from around Krakow and is sold as petrified.

2.And here is the Florida bone.

I trust this forum less and less:(

The burn test would help determine if it was older than a subfossil (~50,000 years old). Also, a number of your finds from this cave have been from recent bones, so it is not an unreasonable request to make to narrow down the possibilities.

 

Perhaps appealing to the academic literature as opposed to commercial sites would be a much more authoritative source, in this instance.

 

We are sorry that you are experiencing a loss of trust with the forum. We can only do so much with images. Members are always free to disagree with the identification, and are encouraged to take the specimen in hand to a paleontologist to confirm the identity of the specimen.

Am I the only one who is confused? Why suddenly delete this account? Also it's kind of hard to tell the age of a mammal bone just from a few images, but why does this mean you trust the forum less. All we have presented to you are what we can tell from the image. But sorry that you trust the forums less:(.

I know you're trying to give your best, but understand that's not easy to determine bone's age in cave formation due to the specific weathering and depositional conditions, especially if the bone is an isolated one.
An advice, which might help us and you, is to take photos of the specimens - 'in situ'.
Also, archaeologists might help you.

One more time ? ! It is at least the second time for which you ask us to delete your account !

 

Members do their utmost to help you, but they can't make of miracles !

 

About the burn test, the important is to know if the bone smells burnt hair or not to make the difference between a fossil and a recent bone...
