  1. Hey, been a while, so i decided to start a new topic for the new year. Headed out on Thursday 25/01 to the river shores in Antwerp again. First hunt of the year since i've worked non-stop so far and a contractor is rebuilding our house.. It was great being out again so i was already pleased on beforehand, finding some nice teeth made it even better 😁 here's some in situ pics.. Rolled C. hastalis C. hastalis in excellent shape my first Parotodus benedeni ever, not in great shape but an awesome find anyway 😀 Finally a complete 6cm C. hastalis VID20240125131132.mp4 And some random mammal teeth Had a great first hunt of the year, and I already feel like going back! oh yeah, here's the whole lot cleaned up.. Surprised about how many different species i got covered this time 😄 Grtz, Dries

    The Daily Fossil Record

    Inspired to act by Jamie‘s @JamieLynn and their “fossil a day” thread. I been thinking about creating a digital visual catalogue of my collection for a long time now . Been very dyslexic this is a difficult task to undertake. After seeing Jamie’s thread I thought one fossil a day will just take a sort time to photograph, collate and post, making this more achievable task . I will also keep a digital copies for my records. Posting on the forum means that other members can see my small collection and help me if needed with incorrect IDs or names that have changed . The forum has been really helpful in organising my collection . I really can’t gain information from books or scientific papers, the level of concentration I need to comprehend large passages of text is beyond me. This meanings that most of my information is from TFF. For that I thank you all greatly.
  4. From the album: Neutache Shoreline

    My first mammal predator tooth; was purdy excited to find this one. From what I've gathered, m2's for these Dire wolves is a rarer tooth placement. This specimen is missing a section of the chewing surfaces, but is mostly complete with unusually mineralized (for the locality) roots. SIDENOTE: Do y'all prefer this gradient background, or the older solid grey background? Glacial deposits, E Kansas #VL46

  5. Hello y'all! Hope your having a great day. So, got to go out hunting recently, and found a few firsts which is always nice. I spotted this predator (pre?)molar in the sand, and got very excited as it is my first mammal predator tooth. Now, because it's my first predator molar, I know barely anything about id'ng these. Any help would be very much appreciated! It has two roots, and some wear as well. Unfortunately a small section of the enamel is broken off. So: My first question is, where does this tooth belong? Is it a premolar or molar, and why? Also, is there a good paper/guide/system to determine between felid, canid, ursid, and bear-dog? I know that @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis seem to know quite a bit about these. Looking forward to seeing what y'all think this one is. Thanks in advance! Measurements are in metric- millimeters. Both teeth found in 'glacial' material of E Kansas. (tweezers is holding the tooth upright in this photo just in case you were wondering) And now for the second tooth: I found this one roots-up, and my mind was blown when I saw the enamel/chewing surfaces. I have never even seen a picture of a tooth that looks like this, although that doesn't mean much in my 1 year of experience. I don't even know what group of animals to try searching in, so I'll have to lean on the expertise of our fellow members for this one. Here's what I do know about it: -It's unerupted -has HSB's (Hunter Schreger Bands) -possibly Bunodont?? -Fully rooted I'm eager to find out what this goes to. I appreciate all the help for these id requests and all previous requests; thanks everyone! Don't hesitate to correct me in any way, I'm trying to learn as much as I can about ID'ing mammal teeth. Measurements also in metric- millimeters. Thanks again, and have a great rest of your day!
  6. Hey everyone! Recently I found this skull section, and after some research I am pretty sure it's bear. Due to size, I have determined that it is too big for black bear, so I determined that it was brown bear. That is, until I realized quite a few predators look similar... and now I'm not 100% sure on my Brown bear id. I'm hoping some of y'all can either confirm that it is brown bear- or if it is something else possibly. Thank you so much in advance! Found in 'Glacial' deposits of E Kansas Measurements are in cm/mm And here's why I hesitated on labeling it as brown bear: (not suggesting in any way that these are possible id's) Mandrill skull: American Mountain Lion:
  7. Found on a sand bar in E Kansas. I have no idea what this goes to… its odd shape is throwing me off. Thank you in advance for any help/pointers! Measurements are in cm/mm

    Mammal teeth, ear bone Myrtle Beach

    Whenever I find something I always like to try and find out, on my own, what it is. I've searched and have an idea of what these might be but this forum is so helpful I thought I'd ask for some ID help. All were found on Myrtle Beach...despite the busy season here now I still find some nice stuff. Ruler is in inches. 1: 2: Looks similar to the tooth above. Love the blue-ish color of this one. 3: Looks to be a tooth. 4: I'm glad I knew about these beforehand otherwise I would've thought it was just a randomly-shaped rock. I recognize it's a periotic bone, probably dolphin, but could that be narrowed down?

    Small phalanx found - ID help

    I found some sort of phalanx at a lake in the Netherlands. At this location fossils can be found from the pleistocene, but most of the finds are from the (early) holocene. I'm hoping someone can tell me whether this is a bird or mammal phalanx. Any additional information is most welcome, but I don't think it will be identified online. The matrix in the background is in centimeters, so the length is about 2 cm. Let me know what you think!

    South Carolina mammal ankle?

    I found this bone a while back in a summerville creek. It was poking out with some clay I was thinking its a mammal bone like maybe an ankle so I was wondering if anyone knows what part of the animal its from or what animal its from?

    From the album: Hell Creek Formation Microsite

    Sample metatherian teeth. A) lower molars; B ) lower molar in occlusal view showing cusp pattern; C) upper molars; D) premolars
  15. Found this recently in glacial till material in E Kansas. What I find unusual is the rather thick neural process- I’ve personally never seen anything like it. Any ideas, suggestions, or corrections are greatly appreciated; I’m trying to learn more about iding vertebrae. Measurements in cm/mm As always thank you everyone!

    Three rows of teeth

    The set of teeth was found in Hungary, in a pile of washed gravel, so not at the original deposit. Other teeth, mostly mammoth were known to be found at same location. Anyone has any idea what the animal might have been?

    Marine Vertebra? Fossil?

    First time posting. I found what looks to be some kind of marine mammal vertebra on a beach in FL. There appears to be an epiphysis (if that’s the correct term) ring on each end, with the midsection presenting some kind of porous holes (bone?). Apologies if it is not a fossil, but I’m not sure; it is pretty heavy given its size (sponge for comparison).

    Unknown vertebra

    My boyfriend dredged the Pacific Ocean for a living. This vertebra was scooped up off the ocean floor. It has barnacles on it. What animal could it be from?
  19. This bone is quite river worn, but there are two distinct articulation surfaces that I hope are diagnostic. Found in the Brazos River. It is very well mineralized.
  20. Largemouth Bass

    Miocene mammal tooth

    Found in Westmoreland County, VA, in fallen Calvert formation material. It is 1.6 inches long and does not have a hollow root.

    Ocean animal vertebrae?

    Any thoughts on this?
  22. I just found this earlier today. It's so hard for me to judge age on mammal material in Big Brook because it stains so quickly...
  23. Possible fossilised bone found last week in the sand. I'd like some assistance to identify it please.

    Carpal id

    I’ve been seeing more posts lately of carpals and sesamoid bones where people are having some success getting ids. Here’s one I’ve had tucked away, waiting for a rainy day to post. It’s a little worn, but maybe in good enough shape to narrow it down. It’s roughly 80mm by 78mm.
