    Dire wolf tooth?

    Got this one in the creek Sunday, from size I'm thinking (hoping) that it's dire wolf. Any thoughts? Thanks!
  3. Hey y'all, had a great hunt on a south Florida river last weekend. Walked away with my second dire wolf canine, and my buddy scored two bear molars among dozens of other great keepers. A super curious manatee even came over to take a look. For those interested in seeing all the finds (some good ones I forgot to take pictures of), here's the YouTube video from the hunt. Super fantastic day.

    Peace River, February 7th.

    Last night I was discussing going Hunting today with an old friend, who is more susceptible to cold than I am. It might not seem cold to you, but starting at 6 am the temperatures ranges from 58 degrees F up to a max of 73 degrees. It was to be partially sunny which usually means about 25% of the time. If you are standing in water and the wind picks up, I might start shivering in a 7 mm wetsuit. Why we we go out today.. Tomorrow and Wednesday are raining almost all day and the rest of the week have lower temps. We decided to go to a location that used to have numerous Black on Black Megs... maybe there were a few left.... We tried hunting for 3-4 hours... evidently many others had sought those Megs also, there were bomb craters and discard piles everywhere. My technique was to avoid the discard piles and leverage the deep holes that some strong fossil hunter had dug for me. 1) Dig deeper than he did !!!! or shovel through a side wall in the discard pile to reach undug gravel. Not all that successful,, about 5 small shark teeth per shovel, many broken or worn. We kept on moving... probing for gravel that contains mammal fossils.. Took a break for lunch, and realized we were running out of time because the wind was picking up ... One thing that I have always thought is that it only takes ONE lightening strike fossil to make a great day... a successful day. Power of positive thinking, or maybe I am just lucky !!! At 1 pm, my friend moves upstream, probing and probing and finally after 5 hours, a couple of small Megs... and then a nice 2 inch lower Mako --- YES. I positioned myself downstream and same distance off the bank. In the 1st seive, a nice Dillo osterderm, and a couple of larger tigers ... Now we are in business !!!!, Next sieve ... nothing !!! Rats.... and then in the 3rd sieve a small posterior black on Black Meg.... big smile , big smile and Eureka !!!!... 5 inches above and to the left of the Meg, a lightening strike !!!! 15 minutes later, we left and stopped at Wendys for the hot Chilli... Great Hunting trip.. long to be remembered.

    Canine tooth ID

    Found in the Peace River, Florida. Unfortunately root is missing. Fairly robust size, curved, one side appears to have a mesial ridge. I am hoping it is dire wolf. What do you think?

    Dire Wolf

    DNA Reveals the Real Lives of ‘Game of Thrones’ Dire Wolves https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/13/science/dire-wolf-genome.html?surface=home-discovery-vi-prg&fellback=false&req_id=808114446&algo=identity&variant=no-exp&imp_id=72616698&action=click&module=Science Technology&pgtype=Homepage
  7. The terrifying dire wolf is more closely related to the African jackal according to DNA. https://www.nbcnews.com/science/science-news/prehistoric-dire-wolves-looked-different-those-game-thrones-study-suggests-n1254091

    Florida carnivore tooth

    Hi all, Today I’ve got a carnivore canine from Florida that I bought about a month ago, I bought it as dire wolf, but I find that very hard to believe. I’ve got my suspicions but I wanted too ask your opinions. It is about 1 7/16” long, but would likely be in the two inch range if complete. Included is an estimated size. @PrehistoricFlorida @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Bone Daddy @digit. TIA

    Another interesting beach find

    Down again from Minnesota searching for treasures. I found this a couple days after the last storm on a shell strewn sand bar. Looks like maybe a Dire Wolf tooth sans the root. Looking for confirmation or a id if something else. I have found walrus, ground sloth, and tapir material in the past and another oddity would be nice to add to the collection. Thanks in advance.

    Texas Cave Finds

    A few weeks ago I revisited a small Cave/Rock shelter up by Marble Falls, TX that I collected in back in the 90's. I had found some good stuff then but with boredom finally decided to go out again and bring back more dirt to sift through. Quite the treasure trove, working on a paper about the locality. The material seems to be mostly late Pleistocene and is consistent with other caves in Central Texas such as Cave Without A Name and Miller's Cave. The entire cave floor has been torn up probably by artifact hunters but they did miss one - a late Archaic Point that I have identified tentatively as an Ensor Point (Variety I). Now to the fossils - first the two extinct species A Cottonmouth Viper fang Hmmm, I seem to have reached the max MB for upload, will post more later

    Dire Wolf canine?

    Hi everyone, I'm a long time fossil hunter here in Florida, but have only just joined the forum. I was hoping y'all could help me confirm some ID's that I found yesterday. Pics 1&2: Dire wolf canine? I always have trouble with big canines telling the difference. Pic 3: assorted canines, any ideas? Pic 4: marine mammal vert, any ideas? Pic 5: Mastodon/Mammoth toe bone? Pic 6&7: Peccary tusk? Pic 8-10: No idea Pic 9: tortoise claw core? Pic 10&11: dugong tooth? You can follow me on youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCwk2U0HOKFx8t_zKzftsoYw?view_as=subscriber I'll be uploading a video of the hunt in the next day or two. Thanks for the welcome guys!

    Carnivore maybe Dire Wolf?

    I'm don't know about this. What do you think? Thanks in advance.

    Santa Fe carnivore canine

    Hey guys, Here's a partial canine that I got from Cris & Kyle around 2 and a half years ago. It's from the Santa Fe River in Florida, so Pleistocene in age. I've compared it to several canines online, and my best guess right now is spectacled bear (Tremarctos floridanus), but I feel like it could also be a lower canine from a dire wolf (Canis dirus). It doesn't seem cat-like to me. What do you think? I can provide more angles if necessary. Thanks in advance, Max
  14. Hey guys! I had a killer hunt this past week! I got a dire wolf molar, giant armadillo claw, massive gator tooth and even some mastodon tusk and skull (which you can see in the short video I took). Hope you enjoy!

    Dire Wolf?

    Here is another one of my impulse purchases. Loved the look and OK price. But, is it really a Dire Wolf partial skull. Information only said "found in North Dakota by father 15 years ago". Seller didn't have a fossil knowledge. Help!

    Unknown Maxilla from Oligocene

    Hey everyone, I was digging in the White River Formation when I found this amazing maxilla of some creature. Through some questioning and conversations with various paleontologists, many people have different opinions of what this is. The responses I’ve had are all different, being Oreodont, Dire Wolf, or a species from the family of Brontotheriidae. The w shaped teeth might suggest Brontotheriidae... What are your guy’s opinions? The maxilla is about 6 inches long.
