    Big Bone!

    When I spotted this there was only about a 2 inch diameter piece exposed through the ground. I started digging and finally pulled out the camera to take some in situ shots. Based on size I will guess proboscidean limb bone. It's a little beat up, but maybe someone can tell me which bone this is. It measures 16 inches long. The head is 5 x 7 inches.
  2. Here is a mystery molar from Europe. I have no info on it. first off I believe it is a landfind based on a few things, but that brings me no closer to identifying the species. As you can see in the second photo the inner enamel is still calcified which means it is probably geologically young. I identify the tooth as an m2 lower. The tooth has 15 plates spread across 6 1/4 inches. The plate number points towards a woolly; the only thing keeping me from giving it the ID of woolly is the split in in the plates starting midway through the molar. I have seen that characteristic on a large southern

  5. I have a very large Mammoth tooth that came with a large lot of fossils I purchased. It's not in the best shape but definately recognizable. Unfortunately one of the scales has separated from the rest of the tooth and it has also broken in two pieces. It may have previously been broken and fixed (may also be fixed along other scales, too, I can't be sure). What is the best way to: (1) repair the scale to make it whole (2) reattach the scale to the tooth (3) any other sealing, cleaning, or work that can be done to stabilize the tooth Please see the pictures (grid is 1" spacing), and ask
  6. I'd like the forum's opinion on this piece, of which I have very little information: It is a tusk of some sort, broken at one end and perhaps the root end at the other? It appears to be a piece of petrified wood at first glance, especially the side with the long crack down it. However it is much lighter than petrified wood, and the broken end shows the signature hollow center. Pics are below, the grid on which the specimen is on are 1"x1", for size comparison. This came from a craigslist purchase of all things. It was part of a large lot (about 100 pieces) that this lady had in storage,

    Museum Exhibit at Cranbury

    From the album: Jerry's Really Old Stuff

    During late summer and fall of 2013 I organized a fossils exhibit for the Cranbury Historical Society Museum, Cranbury, NJ. This photo shows a mastodon molar from my collection which had only recently been found in the Atlantic Ocean off shore before the exhibit. Also visible is a rare mammoth molar owned by Derek Yoost also an off shore NJ find.
  8. A beautiful Friday on the Peace River yielded a baby mammoth tooth! The photo is the top chewing surface, still sandy from the river. I also found my best river meg to date, 2" on the diagonal, and 2 tapir caps which, as a newbie fossiler, exactly doubles my collection of tapir caps. Thanks to the guidance of Shellseeker and another esteemed fossil friend who granted guidance and access to a more remote location.

    Beautiful chunk of mammoth tooth from Florida's Peace River, Pleistocene epoch. Approx 4" x 3" x 1.25" This piece came out of the river like this. It has not been polished or tampered with in any way. Amazing!

    Mammoth Tooth?

    Found this interesting tooth today in about 2 feet of water along Des Moines River in Southeast Iowa. To be 100% honest I have no idea if it belongs to a mammoth because I have never found one and havnt studied them much. I compared it to pictures on the internet and it kind of looks like a mammoth tooth but it also doesn't.
  15. Here's the latest on molecular biology / biotechnology advances and our furry friend, the Woolly Mammoth. Unlike most dinosaur fossils, Woolly Mammoth remains are often found in frozen, less-deteriorated states in Siberia; and often contain viable proteins such as collagen, from which genetic sequences can be produced. In ice condition: Amazingly preserved woolly mammoth found frozen in Siberia after 39,000 YEARS goes on display in Tokyo http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2358695/Woolly-mammoth-frozen-Siberia-39-000-YEARS-goes-display-Tokyo-woolly.html Woolly mammoth discovery ra
  16. Here are 3 euro river finds. the top one is a lower steppe mammoth tooth (Rare) the middle is a lower straight tusked elephant tooth (Rarest) and a blue woolly upper. Got the 3 for a steal from my German connection. I like to brag about my amazing deals lol.
  17.

    Peace River Find-Is This Mammoth Or Mastadon?

    I found these in the Peace River-Florida. I was told that these may be mammoth or mastadon enamel fragments. Can anyone confirm? Thanks

    Peace River Find-What Is This?

    I found this in the Peace River-Florida. The pictures are the not the greatest. The sides are etched which makes me think that they are either mammoth or mastadon. The lower picture is a similar piece. Please let me know your thoughts by looking at the top picture. Any help would be appreicated! Thanks
  22. Hello All! I need your help, but first I'd best introduce myself. I'm the new Program Coordinator -- and on-site paleontologist -- for the Waco Mammoth Site. For those of unfamiliar with the site, it's a late-Pleistocene recurrent mass-mortality site for Columbian mammoths and a scattering of other Rancholabrean megafauna. From 68 KA onwards at least two groups of mammoths and their camp-followers got caught in flash floods along a tributary of the Bosque River in what would become the western outskirts of Waco, TX. The site is currently a city-run in-situ display of six of those mammoths

    Which End Is Up?

    I was out prospecting for new digging locations yesterday. Not supposed to do too much digging- just enough to test for the presence of fossils. I was please to find this one.. Usually I can easily tell the difference between the chewing surface and the root but on Mammoth, it is not so easy. I have showed this to a couple of fossil hunters, and I said that the bumps (left on photo #1, bottom of photo#3) are the occlusal surface and the broken edge is toward the roots. Both of them commented "Well, if you say so... So where are the roots , where is the chewing surface.. and are there easy
