    Rivergods smiled

    Sometimes it is hard to believe how lucky I am in hunting fossils. I was on the Peace River prospecting. Mostly small teeth (no GWs, Makos, Megs). My find of the day was half a giant tortoise humerus. With the afternoon moving to a close, this Tusk dropped into my sieve. I think that this is a Mammoth yearling and I am looking for confirmation or skepticism. 1) It is about 7 inches long with the tip broken. It is 2.25 inches (57 mm) in diameter at the butt. 2) The butt end I believe to be round rather than oval and not broken. I have seen many broken tusks and they do not ha
  2. For the last several weeks Tammy and I have been volunteer digging every Wednesday and Saturday at the Montbrook site a little south of Gainesville (FL) with the Florida Museum of Natural History (FLMNH). The weather called for continuous light drizzle all day yesterday (Saturday) so we bumped the dig day to today (Sunday) instead. Normally, Sunday and Monday are the non-digging days at the site but the other days are occupied by small groups of volunteers and site managers. This morning was clear and cool with a steady breeze from the north. This meant several layers while packing
  3. I found, confirmed by you guys here, mastodon ivory and a molar cusp in south Texas in the the river. With cool Schregers lines. I found another piece I believe is ivory but not schreger lines. It is fossilized but unfortunately it doesnt have many markings. VERY SMOOTH, sticks to tongue like my other ivory, grinds like ivory. No bone pores under microscope. Could it be a boar tusk? Or Mammoth /mastodon.

    Bones in TX

    Found some bones sticking out of the creek bank in Central TX. Area has confirmed Mastodon remains. Tusks and a tooth all found within 1/4 mile of this site. Bones are 12 feet below the top of the bank. I did a little digging around today to get a feel for what it could be. It appears it could be a large pelvis bone (4-5 feet wide). I also found a small bone that appears to be from the foot/toes etc. Not really sure how I should proceed. Is there any educational value in this type of bones? Who would one contact to ask? I am sure Mastodon bones are fairly common.
  5. Friends, daddy/daughter recent extensive beach fossil hunt yielded lots of fossils. My daughter and I found the piece pictured below, which shares the same color of the teeth we find in North Florida but has the most unusual intersecting lines in a very regular pattern leading me to a multiple week search. We *think* we see Schreger lines and my 9 year old daughter is quite literally exploding with excitement. Can this community of experts who have helped do IDs in the past help us figure this out? If these are Schreger lines is there a way to determine whether these are likely ma
  6. 10 hr North Sulphur River Texas hike with friends. I found a little bit of everything. Mosasaur, Xiphactinus, Pleisosaur, Mastodon, Horse, Coral and cool antiques.
  7. This is a tooth fragment I'm thinking of buying, and it's advertised as gomphothere. But it also looks mastodon to me. Thoughts?

    Mastodon and Mammoth Teeth?

    Wondering about these teeth...can someone please help ID these? I have two that I think are Mastodon and Mammoth but not 100% sure. Thanks for the help! IMG_9860.HEIC IMG_0209.HEIC

    A Ridiculous Find

    A friend of mine last weekend was digging near an old creek bed on his farm property in Southern Ontario and came across a "Weird rock" as he described to me that I should check out, when I got to his house and he presented the approx. 10lbs "weird rock" my jaw hit the floor, this weird rock was 100% a tooth from something that lived a looong time ago. It was the coolest thing I'd ever seen before, so after an hour of googling we realized by the cusped shapes on the tooth this was a mastodon tooth....in his back yard practically. We are planning on going back to dig this weekend, so my questio

    Mastodon? South Texas

    I found this by Corpus Christi. I am 90% sure this is a mastodon crown but would love some confirmation and then I found this tusk with cross hatching and I don't know if its mastodon or mammoth Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you fossil forumers!

    Mastodon ivory?

    I was told by someone familiar with the location where this was found that this is mastodon ivory. They said that it turns this blue and cream color in this area. Just wondering what the experts think. Thanks

    Attaching ivory

    Hi all! I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to Attach two pieces of ivory? I tried gluing, but it didn’t work well. I stabilized it with a 50/50 clear elmers/water mixture, and it’s pretty solid now, but I don’t know what to do because I still can’t glue it.
  13. Everyone said NSR was dry and picked over but I hiked 9 hrs and found some cool stuff. My favorites are the Protostega costal bone with partial rib head preserved, the mosasaur bone with bite mark and the artifacts. I walked in tracks all day but the river is too large for someone to get everything and people miss quite a bit.

    Mammoth/Mastodon Toe Bone?

    Found on the Brazos River just southwest of Houston. When I first picked this up, judging by the extreme river damage it had suffered being tossed around in the water for so many years, I simply assumed it was just another unidentifiable piece of Pleistocene bone to get thrown in the box with the others back at home. But since I've been going through the galleries of some of the members here to help identify the other bones I collected, this one seems to bear a resemblance to a mammoth metacarpal. Maybe the smallest one, although the damage on several spots is significant - the outer bony surf

    Proboscidean Ulna

    Since the Peace River, FL has been running deep and fast for the last few weeks I decided to spend some time prepping and making a display for several proboscidean bones found in the spring. After posting the bones for id here when they were found and doing a bit of research on my own I believe what I have are pieces of an ulna from either a Mammoth or Mastodon. There is the possibility of Gomph, but Dr. Hulbert has informed me a couple of times that Gomph specimens have not yet been found in the Peace River. So first up is a photo of the four ulna sections along with the other

    Proboscidea foot bone?

    ID help appreciated. Found diving near Venice Beach, Florida.

    Need help prepping!

    Guys, please tell me how to prepare a mastodon tooth and jaw that was excavated within the past two weeks. It is already starting to dry out and crack. I need help from what I need to do to stabilize, to clean, and to make it look like museum quality. The bones are so fragile and are starting to crack and crumble.

    Proboscidea incisor

    Hi all, I wanted to know if Proboscidea incisor is just another name for tusk... I’m considering putting in a bid on everyone’s favorite auction site, but I wanted to make sure it’s tusk.

    Mastodon Tooth (Partials)?

    I have here 5 tooth partials on offer. They're up for sale and the provenance is Florida. Is there enough here to say that they're really Mastodon? These are 2-2.5".

    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/UCwk2U0HOKF

    Mammoth skull

    Good morning, I walked by this while servicing my truck at a dealership. I thought it didn’t look modern, but could be wrong. If it is an ice age fossil I was planning to purchase this to prevent anymore sun damage. Thanks

    Tooth, Tusk or Bone?

    Found in Green Mill Run creek on 8/21/2020. Unsure if it is whale tooth, some type tusk or Bone. My original assumption was Sperm Whale but some have thought maybe tusk??

    8/16/20 Trip

    From the album: Post Oak Creek

    Didn't find much this time. I don't think it's rained in a while - the water looked stagnant. Also was picked over well. Favorite find is the mostly complete Cretodus (found it under a fallen tree).

    Central Florida Hunt

    Hey guys, I went looking for fossils in central Florida this past Tuesday. I only had an hour to hunt, but boy did it produce! My favorite finds were five chunks of Mastodon tusk and a partial muskrat jaw! I hope you enjoy this look into prehistoric Florida!

    Infant mastodon calf?

    I was on another river adventure and found this Butte. I tried to find images that resemble what I found, the closest comparable was a infant mastodon calf. I would appreciate any feedback y’all may have! Thanks!!
