    Stockoceros sp. Metacarpal

    From the album: Neutache Shoreline

    A rare find; this belongs to Stockoceros, a unique extinct Pronghorn/American Antelope. Modern/extant antelope have one horn core- Stockoceros would have had four. As horn material, keratin, does not typically preserve in fossils, no one knows what this animal's horns may have looked like. Found in Glacial till, E Kansas. #VL38 5/29/24

    Bison in pa?

    Hello everyone! I am looking for help with a possible id on these bones I have found recently in the Pittsburgh area of Pa. They were all found in a creek bed with a lot of exposed rock after the amount of rain we got in the spring. All bones were found in a 20 foot square radius. Thank you for any help! I did a hot pin test, and it did not burn through at all..

    River bed Metacarpal

    Hi, one of my Friend found this leg bone in a river bed in Matapedia, Quebec, Canada. After few research, its looks like a metatarsal or a metacarpal from a deer or something like that. The bizarre thing in that case, a Walrus skull was found near the bone.. but its cleary not in the walrus anatomy. Can you help me to indentify this one please, or just, if its a fossil or a modern bone. Thanks !
  4. This is being sold as a metacarpal from an Anhanguera Pterosaur from the Kem Kem, Morocco. Size is 3,81cm (1.5"). I'm no expert but I'm not sure as I can't see a match with known examples. Sadly don't have more photos. Any thoughts?

    horse (Equus) cannon bone

    From the album: BONES

    Left metacarpal II ("cannon bone") of an equus horse, with fused metacarpal IV ("splint bone"). Recovered in Dixie County, Florida. Pleistocene.

  6. Hi all. This specimen is advertised online as a dinosaur metacarpal from Taouz. I don't know much about Maroccan dinosaur bones, but I wouldn't be surprised if this bone a complete fake, composited or heavily restored (some areas appear very smooth) item. Pictures are pretty bad, but it is all I have got. What do you think? If it is real, would it be possible to id it to some level? Thanks!

    Bone id needed

    This bone was found at Myrtle Beach after the most recent storm. Thanks in advance for help. Jim Kovalchick
  8. So I found this bone in the Cretaceous Bladen formation of eastern North Carolina. It’s 2cm in length. After looking at pictures of the skeletons of various organism, I think it is either the carpal or metacarpal of a turtle or a mosasaur. Does this look accurate for this bone? Thanks!

    Little Tea Pot Short and Stout

    Thoughts on this stout metacarpal? Southern Minnesota gravel/river find. I only ask because farmers have run their cattle on the river in this area since I was a young man. This looks like bison to me though based on the proximal end and how stout it is.
  10. Hi all, I know this topic has been hammered pretty hard but I just don’t feel I’ve seen the answers I’m looking for. I have a few long bones I’m gluing back together with some Paraloid B-72, and I was hoping to get advice on reversible materials I can use to patch the missing holes. I’d like the color to generally match but still have it be obvious it’s a repair. Also, what do you all store your paraloid solutions in, I’ve tried mason jars but those seals dissolve so quickly! I need something to get in and out of quickly as some of these long bones have taken over 20hrs of prep and I am constantly gluing. I’ll be hopefully finishing up a camel radioulna soon that I’ll be posting!

    Felid metacarpal?

    I picked this up today in Galveston Bay dredge spoils, late Pleistocene Beaumont Formation. I've tentatively identified it as Felid, 3rd right metacarpal. I'd like to identify it to at least the subfamily, Pantherinae or Machairodontinae but I'm not that familiar Felid material and my online search hasn't been much help. Hoping someone can point me to a source where I might find data on size and morphology of carpals and tarsals of these two the subfamilies.
  12. Hello fossil folks! I am going through my bone collection from last season and would like to identify the five bones pictured. The most interesting one to me is #5 as I believe it is too long to be a horse. Perhaps camel? All of these bones were collected from a river in central Iowa. So far, my wife and I have found prehistoric bison, horse, sloth, mastodon and mammoth bones from the pleistocene period. I am pretty sure these are either Metacarpal or Metatarsal bones. Sorry but I do not have a metric scale for the pictures. I have labeled the bones 1 thru 5 and noted each bone length. Thank you!

    Pteranodon wing (reverse side close up)

    From the album: Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Pteranodon Sp. Logan County, Kansas Niobrara form. Smokey Hill chalk Santonian-Campanian, late Cretaceous Sadly this one broke while removing it from packaging, even with great care. Thankfully a beautifully clean break with no fragments or even visible dust! Im not exactly sure which bones they are, and I’d appreciate any input about it, but based on the significant difference between the 2 connecting bones, I’d imagine it’s one of the metacarpals and the connecting 1st phalanx. (I’m very proud of the display/storage box I made for it. Removed box innards and carved tightly fitted slots in padding from an old crystal wine glass box. Who says having random stuff sitting around for decades is a bad thing!?)

    pteranodon wing

    From the album: Dinosaurs & flying reptiles

    Pteranodon Sp. Logan County, Kansas Niobrara form. Smokey Hill chalk Santonian-Campanian, late Cretaceous Sadly the phalanx(?) broke a bit during unpacking, despite the extreme care. Very happily however, it was all perfectly clean, without a single fragment, or even visible speck of dust! Im not exactly sure which bones they are, and I’d appreciate any input about it, but based on the significant difference between the 2 connecting bones, I’d imagine it’s one of the metacarpals and the connecting 1st phalanx.

    Horse Metacarpal Bone?

    I found this in Dallas County, Texas. I am not sure if it is part of a bison or horse or donkey, etc (equus)..... Any help is appreciated. Thank you!

    Calvert Cliffs Bird Bone

    I found this fossil bird bone recently while fossil collecting along Calvert Cliffs (Maryland Miocene). I collected the bone directly from the fossil layer it was in. I believe it is a Metacarpal bone from the wing region. Fairly small measuring at approximately 13/16ths of an inch long. Can't believe the thin section stayed intact while sifting in my screen. Any ideas as to species would be appreciated. Daryl.

    Metapod (?) ID

    Hello there! I need your help. I've collected this two in a late Pleistocene conglomerate. This "quarry" has yielded only rancholabrean fauna, horses, mammoth, bison, etc. But I cannot ID this two metacarpals/metatarsals (?)... Can you help me? *The scalebar is on cm.
