  1. diginupbones

    Fused joint or healed fracture?

    Not sure what to think of this one. I usually don’t find joints that fuse together like this. It almost looks like a bone break that has healed and fossilized.

    Proboscidean tooth?

    Hi! I'm having trouble ID-ing this ~4.4cm long mammal tooth from China. It was labelled as Playbelodon, though the lack of cusps makes me doubt that assessment. I'm starting to wonder if it's a Proboscidean at all, and if it's an entirely different family of mammal alltogether. Does anyone have an idea on what this could potentially be?
  3. diginupbones

    Tiny epiphysis?

    Any ideas on which bone this is and who it belonged to?
  4. With a week of collecting under my belt I felt ready and excited to take on the next, this time exclusively on the White River formation. All factors being considered, the White River is probably the most difficult formation to hunt among those I've been lucky enough to explore thus far. For one, the terrain is often very rough, with all sorts of ridges, rises, washes and gullies to hike through. Another issue to account for is the reflection of light off of the white sediments, meaning that ample sunscreen is a necessity if you don't want to burn to a crisp. That harsh sunlight can lead to te

    Interesting mammal teeth (modern)

    Hi y'all. While visiting a local rock shop, I saw these mammal teeth in a tray labeled "shark teeth," along with actual shark teeth. I wasn't sure of what they were and decided to take them home. Their proximity to another tray of fossil cetacean teeth and their rough similarity (crown-to-root ratio) made me think they could be odontocete. Thanks for any help! @Boesse@Harry Pristis

    Mystery mammal tooth from Alabama

    I have a friend who found this mammal tooth in south Alabama. Is it a fossil? What do you think it is?
  7. Hey y'all Today I took a friend of mine fossil hunting for the first time, and to my delight (and relief, lol) he made an interesting find. Several other finds came later as well. Both sides of this mammal tooth chunk have a distinctive "clink", so I figure it must be old enough to at least have faced some preservation. He took his find home when we finished, so unfortunately I have no measurements or up close photos. My guess would be that this is a piece of a bison tooth. Not far away we found a complete bison tooth as well. However, seeming I've found a piece o
  8. When I tap this with metal tweezers, it feels at least partially mineralized, but it has also changed color to a chalkier, lighter tone since it dried, which leads me to think it can't be fully mineralized. Would this be the case with a very young fossil (say Pleistocene)? Is there any Pleistocene material at calvert cliffs?

  10. Found this today at calvert cliffs. The only things I could think of that it could be were a juvenile porpoise or crocodile tooth. Anyone have any thoughts?
  11. Hello! Would love to know about this bone (or we think it's bone) fragment found in Big Brook, NJ. Someone had suggested it was mammal and possible from a deer? Of course I would love to know if it's modern or an actual fossil. And would hope to at least identify the animal it came from. Description (if not clear in photos): It's about an inch long and has a very distinct point. It's relatively smooth with a texture on the underside of the point. An help identifying for a very curious family would be greatly appreciated!

    A Very odd bone

    I have this bone that I found 4-5 weeks ago. I have not had any new insights, but I think it strongly suggests marine mammal and because of the foramena, mandible. All suggestions and comments welcome. Jack
  13. Made my second ever trip to Calvert cliffs (went to Calvert cliffs state park). The first trip last year was fun, but I didn't really find any of the big shark teeth that I couldn't find near home at Big Brook in New Jersey. This time I did much better. Stopped on the way home from a family vacation and finally got some of the things I'd been hoping for. Still no megalodon teeth, but maybe next time! Got only a small handful of shark teeth, but was lucky to get two very nice hemipristis teeth, one of which was in absolutely stunning condition. Also got so many stingray teeth I star

    Fossil mammal Jawbone and tooth id?

    I found this 47 yrs ago in a pile of fill dirt/clay brought in to level the church yard. This was in Crestview Florida. Any ideas what it is from?
  15. Hi, I found this bone on June 5th 2021 in Eastern Finland during a field survey of a historical site. Can anyone help identify the mammal species of the bone? The scale is 30 cm.
  16. Hi everyone, I'm hoping to be able to find out the identity of this tooth I found in the White River formation last summer. It has an odd triangular cross section and doesn't seem to match anything I've seen so far. I was wondering if it might be from the ancient peccary Perchoerus as I saw some similarities online when I was exploring that option. I would be interested in reading all of your opinions. The tooth is approx. 4 cm in length and 1 cm at its widest point. Photo from the field
  17. Hello dear fellow forum members, I just encountered an offer that made me stop. the Information above is all the seller has, except for the weight of the bone (around 120 g) What do you think this could be? Thanks, J

    Mystery Texas Mammal Tooth

    I've had this tooth for about a year now after I found it on the Brazos River near Houston last summer. It's definitely fossilized and has the exact same texture and weight to it that all of the other fossils I've found in roughly the same area do. As far as I can tell the whole tooth is still there, but unfortunately the occlusal surface that makes identification the easiest is almost completely worn down, I'm assuming by the animal's age at the time it died. I've tried matching the shape of the top of the tooth with others I've found pictures of, but the issue is the pea-shaped "pinche
  19. I found this vertebra in Bartow county Florida along with some other mammal Pleistocene fossils. It was found in close proximity to some deer antler pieces and Mastodon incisor pieces. I found an almost identical vertebra online that said that it was a giant ground sloth vertebrae. The piece is heavily mineralized. Any opinions on this vertebra would be greatly appreciated. It has a diameter of 2 1/2 inches and a width of 1 1/2 inches.
  20. Just found what appears to be some kind of rodent molar in big brook, New Jersey. I know that there are both pleistocene and modern mammal fossils at this site, is there any way to tell if this is a fossil or a modern animal?
  21. I've spent some time browsing this forum and I've noticed there is a huge range of fossil diversity between member collections and also within a members own collection so it led me to this thread idea.... let's see the best of the best in one area! What are your personal favourite fossils in your collection? To keep this sensible, maybe keep it to the top 2 in your collection (cos we all have more than just 1 favourite), what the fossil is, why it's in your top 2 and a couple of pics per fossil In my top 2 I have.... Megalodon tooth (96mm slant height), it's not my
  22. Hi everyone! Ya'll where a huge help with the shark teeth I posted, so I figured I'd ask for some help with some of the more unusual stuff I've found at Post Oak Creek. For anyone who doesn't know Post Oak Creek is a small gravel filled stream in north Texas that lots of Cretaceous shark teeth get washed into from the Eagle Ford Group (shout out to ThePhysicist for clarifying the formation!). However a lot of Pleistocene material gets washed in there as well so you get this lovely set of gravel bars where you're finding stuff like crow shark and goblin shark teeth in the same sift as a bi
  23. I haven't posted in a while, but have had some pretty good hunts over the last couple of years. This year has been busy with work. I made it down to the river for some fossil hunting for my first time in 2021 last Friday. I had a really nice day. The weather was beautiful. I had great visiblity. I'm hoping to go again tomorrow. I took some photos of some of the days finds. First photo: - One of the things I was most excited about is a potential talon of a bird of prey. It is broken, but you can see it in the photos below. I am pretty exc
  24. I have some Gansu fossils from the Linxia Basin, but I wasn't 100% sure on ID. The teeth were sold as Entelodont molars, and my current assumption is that they belong to Paraentelodon macrognathus from the Oligocene deposits in the Linxia Basin. From what I've read, they are similar to Daeodon, at least size wise. I think the formation would be the Jiaozigou Formation? But I'm not entirely sure. The Chleuastochoerus jaw, i have no idea. I think there are 2 species present in the Linxia Basin, and I don't know if it's possible to ID them down to species leve
