    Mammuthus primigenius molar?

    Hey, today i went hunting for shark teeth in the Antwerp area in Belgium. The spot i searched is actually a Pleistocene base gravel with reworked shark teeth and shell material from Eocene to Pleistocene. After 4 hours of wet sifting for shark teeth in some puddles i decided to give my back a rest and have a walk around the locality. At a certain spot with fossil material and recent debris mixed up i suddenly came across this one.. I couldn't believe my luck! I think it's a Mammuthus primigenius or woolly mammoth molar, but could someone tell me some more about it. Like tooth positioning, how much of it is missing (i've looked around and no other parts to be recovered), what would be the age or size of this particular animal,..? It's 18cmx14cmx9cm Thx! Dries
  2. I bought several mammoth hairs, and the second image is a microscope observation of them. (Sorry the microscope at home isn't performing very well.) These look like a possibility of mammoth hair?
  3. I applied butvar 76 dissolved in acetone to a tusk that I had dried for a year. I guess the solution was too concentrated, my application too thick, or my specimen too cold. In any case, it dried with an ugly white film on my tusk. I need to remove it and start over. I read that the butvar could be dissolved in acetone. I went after it with a both a cotton rag and scotch brite pad. While some of the ugly film was removed, it created a gooey mess that required lots of elbow grease to remove. After the acetone evaporated, there’s still traces of haziness. Several years back, I applied the same concentration of butvar 76 to another tusk. It turned out with a spectacular subdued sheen. The only difference I can think of was the tusk was warm from sitting the sun before the application, while my latest attempt was performed inside. At the rate I’m going, it will take gallons of acetone and many hours to remove my botched attempt. And yet, I can still see some residual dull butvar in the nooks and crannies. I’m seeking advice on how to best remedy my situation. Thank you.

    Can this be a piece of mammoth tusk?
  5. Hi Just got back from the peace river near arcadia. Looking for some help in identifying the fang, claw, and larger teeth. Looks like a beaver tooth and either a mammoth or mastodon? Thanks for any help! Sifter
  6. I found this mammoth molar piece in North Florida submerged in the water yesterday. It is extremely brittle and flaky. How do I care for this right now, and how do I preserve it?

    Found Fossil

    Found this south of Bismarck, North Dakota. A few miles from the hell creek formation but not in it. Found near creek. Possibly Bison?

    Mammoth vertebra?

    Hi, I suspect I have a piece of vertebra of a mammoth? It was found in the North Sea. The dimensions are approximately 33 cm by 33 cm and 8 cm thick. Would love to learn more about it!

    SE Texas - A mammoth gift!

    @CDiggs This past Thursday, my mom called me and said she ran into a lady she'd know since she was little but hadn't seen her in a long time. The lady asked if her son, me, was the guy who fossil hunts. My mom said yes, and the lady said she has some bones she'd like me to have. So my mom got her contact info and I called and met up with her. When I arrive we go to her storage and in 3 boxes are all of these massive bones. It turns out years ago her ex boyfriend collected these and he passed away 12 years ago. So they've sat in storage all this time. She didn't know what to do with them nor want them. She kept 3 small pieces for her mantle. There is a massive tusk piece in here!! And a nice petrified wood piece. Here are photos. But... Most of what I have ever found has been in water at some point, so it's mineralized fully with darker colors. This, I believe, came from gravel pits locally to me in SE Texas. It's probably been in a more arid environment and dryer so some of the bones are fully mineralized and very, very heavy, while others are dry, lightweight, and crumbly like chalk. And dusty. My questions: How do I clean these? A new paint brush with soft bristles doesn't get the stuff out of the interior holes of the bones. Air? Could I wash or rinse them with water and a soft brush, or something else and let them air dry slowly but not in direct sunlight? I read if it drys too quick the bones could crack. I'd like them to be clean. I have Paraloid for after a cleaning. Some of this white powder is everywhere in this like flour and I wonder if the bone began to deteriorate. This is an incredible gift.

    Unknown tooth

    Found this partial tooth and wanted to know your opinions. I have found many bison/bovine and horse fossils from this site in Kansas. I appreciate the help
  13. Hey, I happened to have come into contact with some nice folks in Northwest Missouri and they were wondering what finds they were collecting off the local river near Iowa but on the Missouri side. They have found Mastodon and mammoth bones/teeth along the same river but as I am a Pennsylvanian invertebrate fossil hunter this is out of my expertise. I could only give basic answers and I was wondering what everyone's thoughts were on IDs and ages. Some images I took while the rest were taken by them. Ill start off with this highly weathered Mammoth/possible mastodon vert (Dont know if Ids can go further on if it's Mammoth or Mastodon): I posted this elsewhere and was suggested Cow Humerous with butcher marks? Modern Horse Maxillary? https://ibb.co/KV54V87 Bison or Cow Scapula? not sure on age Bison Atlas vert? ??? https://ibb.co/LZ4gSgn Modernish jaw? Edit: Sorry these were meant to be on another post, I assume this is a badly weathered stigmaria Root cast? still weird whatever it was. Not removing it here as some people might have already seen it.

    Unknown bone?

    Hey everyone! I need some help identifying an object I found in Asotin county, Washington on the banks of the snake river. I believe the object is a bone. looks like one end of a femur to me but I'm just guessing. It's probably from a cow or horse, but it's really heavy, like it's petrified or water logged, leading me to wonder how old it is. I have never seen anything quite like it, myself. Any input would be amazing. Please and thank you.
  15. EDIT: Likely just a weird concretion or weathered chunk of rock. 😬Thanks all for the clarification. Hi all - while looking for Cretaceous fossils, I found some interesting chunks of what I thought might be bone of some kind amongst the piles of white limestone. When I cleaned them up at home, they started to look more and more like a very worn mammoth molar and some other fragments. Can anyone confirm the ID or offer any other info/ideas? Thanks!

    NSR teeth?

    I'm guessing that these are fragments of a mammoth tooth, found on the NSR. It could be some other large animal, but the ridges make me thing Mammoth. Can anyone verify that?

    Here is another item I believe is a mammoth tooth. Origin is unknown, I found it being used as a doorstop in my friends house. He collected all over LA, AR, TX and OK but I'm not even sure that he actually found this. It may have been given to him. I have a mammoth jawbone with teeth and this looks remarkably similar, except this specimen is smaller. I'm not sure if it is something else, or the teeth I have are larger due to placement in mouth. Thoughts anyone?
  18. Stormywx


    I received these from my friend who passed last year. I am not sure where he found this. It was in a case with all North Sulphur River items, but these do not have the density/hardness of items I have found from there. They are very flaky. I think these might have come from Montgomery LA, but anyone's guess is as good as mine. I think they belong to a mammoth, they were separate in the case, and they do not appear to exactly line up to make a single tooth, one is slightly larger than the other. Anyone care to comment?
  19. Hello my friends father found this weird rock in a stream near London, Ohio and was wondering what it was, it looks vaguly like some coral i think or maybe a mammoth tooth what do you think it is?
  20. Hello. This came out of Florida. I believe it is a mammoth or mastodon scapula. Could it be pelvis bone? Your thoughts? Thank you

    South carolina fossil ID’s

    Found these two in south carolina near the Summerville and Charleston area, im fairly certain one is a tusk but if anyone could give more details on which type on elephant it could’ve been since im not familiar with the area. The second one is a horse tooth (I think) but I am a primarily florida hunter so I would like to know if its a three toed horse or another species since it looks different then the ones ive found down here.
  22. This fossil came out of Florida. I'm assuming mastodon or mammoth. Foot Bone? Your thoughts? Appears to have some smooth, flat surfaces as shown in the second pic. Thank you.
  23. This fossil came out of Florida. Note that it has a smooth concave "cup" in the center. Assuming mammoth or mastodon. Foot bone? Knee cap? Any thoughts? thank you.

    Mammal Jaw? Teeth?

    Hi, I found this fossil in our basement and I remember that we were told as kids that it’s a mammoth tooth but now I don’t think so. It was found in Belgium I believe.
  25. Hello folks - Please see the attached two photos. I am trying to identifying the bones in the photos and have numbered each piece and I took photos of BOTH sides of each piece. For two of the bones, I took a third picture. These all came out of Florida. I believe bone #2 is a Mastodon jaw bone and bone #3 is a scapula to either a Mammoth or Mastodon. Please note that bone #7 (3rd photo) has a concave shape / cup in the middle of it. Thanks for your input. Tom
