  1. Found in the Cimarron River in Kingfisher County, OK. 25" tip to tip on his horns, 26.5" from top of skull to tip of nose. I would like more info on what he is, Antiquus, Occidentalis, or B.Bison.

    I posted this a long time ago ( I think before TFF crashed, because I can't find the original post). The id came back as bison, but I just started looking at it again. I have been comparing it to Harry Pristis' gallery and I think it looks more like pleistocene camel. It measures about 60mm max length and 40mm max width. Found in the Brazos River. Just wanted to run it by the pros for a second opinion.
  3. I recently acquired this nice old bison skull, but I'm not sure if he is of the modern or ancient variety (or somewhere in between). The skull was found at the bottom of the Missouri River in northern South Dakota. It measures 29 inches from horn tip to horn tip and it's pretty heavy, too--about 30 pounds. As much as I'd like for it to be antiquus, I'm leaning towards big old Bison bison due to its size (quite large for B. bison but relatively small for B. antiquus) and because the horn cores aren't as long and robust as the ones in most pictures of Bison antiquus fossils I've seen.

  8. Hi, there. I am seeking for help on an ongoing research. You see, there is two fossil sites in wich I work as a graduate student. We are developing a new method to identify isolated Bison teeth using multivariate statistics. Until now we beign able to differentiate between two ecotypes, a large form and a small form. These are not sexual differences (we alrealy test them and find the sexual difference does not correspond with our findings). The help I need now is if you know someone or directly posess skulls of fossil North American fossil bisons with attached teeth. I only need to identify

    Who's Tooth... I Thought Bison,

    ... I thought Bison Molar, but, it doesn't seem to look like the other Bison molars in the gallery. .... and yes, I cleaned and polished part of this one too.... it's my twisted Lapidary part that does it to me every time.... Sorry I'll take a better pic if need be. Found near Yuma CO.... the same day of the "Maybe Turtle Egg" find. What do you think?

    Possible Record Fossil Found

    Hello, when I was very young I was out on a hike on some our land in alberta. On the hike we descovered a skull which had been washed down a hill by the recent rain falls. The skull was of interest so we decided to take it home. After some reasherch we descovered that it was in fact the skull of a bison antiquus. The skull is complete with only a few missing peices. After reviewing some information on the web it appeared that the largest one found to date had a horn tip to horn tip span of 31 inches , the skull I found has a span of 38 inches. If it is a record size who should I contact? Than
  12. Just went out for a quick kayaking trip to scope out the END of the English river. River Junction to be exact, ran up on the sand due to low water levels. As I was walking over the sandbar I notcied several fossilized corals, that I'm sure of. However, I also found this tooth and it seems to have started my newly found hobby of fossil hunting. I love this site just from browsing for a few mins and I would appreciate all the help I can get on this tooth. My curiosity is driving me nuts! Bison? Cow? Horse? Sasquatch? Thanks again!

    Bos Os Coxae

    Can someone provide a clear dorsal and lateral picture of the os coxae (complete structure) of Bison bison and of an American domestic dairy cattle (say Jersey or equivalent)? Just want to see a good comparison. Many thanks!

    Buffalo Bones

    Went to Oklahoma and the Red River Saturday July 13, 2013. Found an island sand bank in the river on google earth and ventured to it. I found the Buffalo bones you see in the photos - most were buried in mud. I only had the one day to look, but was happy with what I found.

    Ive been told that this is bison, but figured i would post it on here for opinions. I don't know alot about what particular types of bones are what except for obvious structure i suppose. I found this in east fort worth in a portion of the trinity river just laying in river deposits. A hundred people walked over it probably.

    Adult Bovine Teeth

    Recently I found a diagnostic tool that has been helpful to me. Being new at and unsure of myself during ID, I figure on using all of the help I can get. Nothing beats hands on for me. While searching a fossil site a few months ago I found a skull from a common adult bovine. All of the upper jaw teeth were there with typical adult wear. There were no lower jaw bones. I tossed it in the back of the truck. I figured to paint it and hang it on the wall or something. Recently I've found myself using ole bossy to compare and ID teeth I've collected through the years. I've picked up bison teeth a
