  1. This is my first fossil bone find. It was found near the mussleshell river in Montana. More specifically Roundup MT. It appears to be some sort of a whale bone fossil. I'm not sure? Any suggestions?
  2. I'm looking to clean 2 whale verts i found long ago. I am experienced with prepping mammoth and rhino teeth but not whale. Can anybody help me?
  3. It's been a challenging season on the Peace River for various reasons. Was sidelined for most of Feb and March with some minor health issues and forbidden by my doctor (and wife) from going in the water until all was healed. Add to that what appears to be a tremendous amount of sand built up in some of my favorite hunting spots by last seasons heavy rains. Then throw in a lot of debris restricting portions of the river to narrow passages. All together it has hindered my luck with any major finds. Can only hope for some of the success our friend Jack - @Shellseeker has been having lately!
  4. Not exactly a paleontology-related article, but does anyone by any chance have access to a copy of the recent paper describing the new Rice's whale Balaenoptera ricei? Rosel, P.E., Wilcox, L.A., Yamada, T.K., Millin, K.D. (2021). A new species of baleen whale (Balaenoptera) from the Gulf of Mexico, with a review of its geographic distribution.

    Sperm Whale Tooth

    Hi guys, I know this isn’t necessarily an identification post as I’m quite sure this tooth belonged to a sperm whale. However, I have done a lot of research on other areas of Florida paleontology yet I don’t know much about ancient sperm whales or their teeth at all. I’m having trouble finding more info. I was wondering if this tooth (found in a creek close to where I live on the gulf coast of Florida) is particularly large for a sperm whale, or is this the standard size? Are they rare or difficult to find? This tooth was lying underneath the top layer of gravel alongside half of a 5 inch

    Help ID Whale tooth+

    Had a beautiful day hunting the Peace River, FL yesterday and came away with some intriguing finds. From prior postings and photos I reviewed provided by @Harry Pristis and @Shellseeker I believe the first exciting find of the day was a small whale tooth and I am seeking confirmation on that here. The tooth measures 37 mm x 10 mm and I believe it shows the hint of the ring pattern referenced by Shellseeker as his tell tale sign of whale. This next tooth has me wondering if i

    Help ID'ing Cape Town Find

    Hi there! My girlfriend and I finally managed to get to the fossil spot here in Cape Town - South Africa (a spot where fossilized shark teeth and whale bone wash up onto the beach) and we are both hoping that what we have found is actually fossilized bone! If any of you could confirm what this is I would be extremely grateful!
  8. Ive been slowly working on our house these last 3 months or so. Yesterday the misses and I went out to the big garage to find certain things to do some white washing. I was looking around seriously and the misses was just looking around. Here is what she ran into! Not a clue as to why these were with all the paint stuff but Id say it was a purty good find. Not sure what I'm going to do with them, they all need some clean up, prep, sandblasting and or repair. I remember buying these sometime in the 1990's. Must have somehow put them with all the paint stuff when we moved to Montana. If
  9. Hey all! Between an ill-timed conference, election month, the pandemic, online teaching, and a few other issues, I was way too stressed out and busy to be on here regularly since October. Also, in mid November we began digging up a small basilosaurid whale in Harleyville, SC - very likely to be the most completely known specimen of the dwarf basilosaurid Chrysocetus, and perhaps the most important basilosaurid discovery in North America of my lifetime. I did manage to write a blog post about our fieldwork, so as an apology for being AWOL and only getting back to identifying cetacea

    Cetacean Skull Fragment?

    Hi guys, I found this bone cluster on the shore of the Black Sea, near the city of Balchik, Bulgaria. From the region there have been findings of Miocene cetaceans, seals and some ground megafauna. The more circular bone somewhat reminds me of an ear bone but comparing it with pictures of fossil dolphin ear bones I can't say if it really is one. So my question is if it is an ear bone and if it is, does that mean that´s a part of a skull? Any help on the identification of the fossil will be very much appreciated! Best regards!

    Prehistoric Whale Vertebrae?

    This is a fossil found near many sharks teeth in the Northern Neck of Virginia. It was found on the side of a cliff in Westmoreland County VA. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Mailbox Whale Jaw

    Last couple of days, I have been searching the internet, for Hipparion horse teeth, Beaver Molars, and small whale teeth driven by TFF threads to answer questions in my mind or help to identify a fossil. I was doing a google search for "Whale tooth Florida jaw" and triggered this fossil, supposedly found in the Miocene of South Carolina !!!! That is close to Florida so we might have the same fossil whales here !!! and @Boesse might help me to identify it. The final aspect is that it was not all that pricey, and since I only have 2 pieces of toothed whale jaw in my collection,
  13. Hi! For my collection Im looking nice vertebrae, different sizes for comparison.... from whale, sharks..... also looking some nice megalodon with different colors, size... Thanks! In return I offer european fossils.

    Peace River Adventure

    Got back to the Peace River yesterday for what turned out to be a beautiful day with a variety of finds and new friends. On arrival at the river a little before 8 am the temperature was a balmy 48*F. The temperature was projected to rise into the mid 70's but I started out the day in my wetsuit and dive boots with hoodie overall to combat the early morning chill. I usually hunt north of Payne Creek State Park but decided to go south today where Megalodon teeth are more easily found. I haven't targeted the big shark teeth since last spring. I returned to the area where I found m

    Peace River Oddity

    I went hunting today in my favorite place -- the Peace River. The day was gorgeous, Sunshine, 70s and I had a 5 mm wetsuit. The river is down (quickly 2-3 feet). Someone upstream closed the locks of a lake or something similar this last week. I was in an area that I had not hunted in years, but I recalled some of the landscape and tried a few of my old spots. Pretty good , but not great. Some nice Hemis, but small shark teeth were few. Found a horse ear bone, a small armadillo scute, a very small canine, but they came slowly, so I move trying lots of different locations. The last one g

    Whale Bone? From Myrtle Beach

    I have another mystery fossil. We found this a few weeks ago at Myrtle Beach. I looks like some kind of fossilized bone, but I'm such a newbie, if it's not a sharks tooth, croc tooth, ray plate or barb I'm at a loss at what I'm looking at. It looks like it might be a part of a whale vertebrae, but that's just a guess. Any help would be appreciated. the last shot is the best of the other fossils we found. It was pretty slim pickings! Thanks

    A Christmas present

    My son lives in Texas. In normal years, I see him for Holidays, sports events, summer vacation. Not normal this year. I had not seen him for 14 months. He has been visiting his Mom on Florida's Atlantic coast the last 3 weeks. On Thursday, he drove to the Peace River and we went hunting in relatively deep water. I found more of the good stuff. Short Thursday night and back to hunting a different location Friday. This day , he had the lucky charm and picked up 4 !! whale teeth in 45 minutes. I could not have been more pleased. It was a grand day, cool but the sun shining. We were recall

    Weird sea mammal bone

    Hi guys, I found this bone on the Bulgarian shore of the Black sea, near Balchik. In the region there have been found the remains of cetotherium sp., dolphins, seals, flamingos and others. I am wondering though what exact bone it is and of course of what. I thought that it may be a part of a fin or something like that, but I failed to find a photo of a bone like this. Any help for the identification will be very much appreciated! And happy soon to be new year!!

    Whale rib fragment or something else?

    Found this on a beach with some shark teeth and other bone fragments. Most of the bone around there is very worn and tumbled, making it impossible to ID. This piece however has some interesting features and could possibly be identifiable. I'm thinking its a piece of the top end of a whale rib? Anybody recognise this as something else, large terrestrial mammal maybe? Thanks

    Shark tooth embedded in bone?

    Hi everyone, A friend found this bone with what looks like a shark tooth embedded into it while he was hunting in Bakersfield near Shark Tooth Hill. Does it look like an embedded shark tooth? and what type of shark do you think it could be from? He found several Hastalis and Planus teeth in the same layer. I really appreciate all the help the community has provided me. I learn something new every time. Thanks!
