History Hunter02's Collection

Recommended Posts

History Hunter02

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.

I believe this is a Stigmaria Root Cast from Western PA. This was one of my first fossils that I found and is what had me started loving to find fossils.

This is a Giant Armadillo Osteoderm that I found in South Carolina. This is a perfect specimen that I am very happy that I found.

This is my biggest find and one of the most exciting ones I've found. It's either a Mastadon/Mammoth bone fragment or a giant sloth bone fragment. We cannot figure out exactly what it is because there is not really anything that can be used to identify which it is other than the massive size.

Here is another chunk of bone. There are shells on it due to it being found directly out of the ocean.

The camal tooth is perfect with the roots and enamel. Definitely the rarest item in my collection.

Nice stuff.  Not to complain,but many of your pix are too dark.  Hard to see the fossils well.  

 

Question... how do you get shark verts IDed to the species?

Sorry about the pictures. I was using my phone. And I got the vertebrates IDed by a paleontologist from South Carolina that has his own company.
