  1. On the way back from some lab work in the Tri-Cities, I got to stop at the Ginko Petrified forest in Vantage, Washington. Most of these trees are miocene. Buried for millions of years, they were unearthed and transported by the incomprehensively large deluge that carved the various gorges through which the Columbia flows at the end of the last ice age. There were some petroglyphs at the park as well. Their original location was nearby, but they had to be relocated for construction of a reservoir. Some of them had been defaced, because apparently some people just can'

    Could these be Calippus teeth?

    Through the years I've found these very small horse teeth in SE Texas. In the photo the 2 center teeth are each 16 mm wide as measured across the width of the crown, the rightmost tooth 19 mm. I know these pre-equus teeth can be difficult to ID. Anyone out there can help? @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @garyc

    Large square tooth and jaw section

    I’m getting kind of a rhino feel from this tooth but I’m just not sure. The shape of this jaw seems really strange.

    Proboscidean tooth?

    Hi! I'm having trouble ID-ing this ~4.4cm long mammal tooth from China. It was labelled as Playbelodon, though the lack of cusps makes me doubt that assessment. I'm starting to wonder if it's a Proboscidean at all, and if it's an entirely different family of mammal alltogether. Does anyone have an idea on what this could potentially be?
  5. A bone chunk from the Stratford cliffs...I’m curious about it.:: the connection point, the dimples..: anyone recognize?

    Tiny epiphysis?

    Any ideas on which bone this is and who it belonged to?

    Hoof core

    I always wanted to find one of these and I finally found a nice one! Is there any way to tell which critter this came from?
  8. I recently acquired some amazing specimens from my good friends collection. These pieces were part of the William Pinch (8/15/1940-4/01/2017) collection. Bill is well known in the mineral community for his incredible collection of one-of-a-kind and rare minerals from around the world. Bill also collected other natural history specimens including these two wonderful fossil teeth. These fossil teeth were available in the 80s and 90s and are now very hard to acquire. I'm very proud to own these teeth from the Pinch Collection. Happy Collecting

    Calvert cliffs

    Recent trip to Calvert cliffs, finally was able to get a boat out on the water after years of planning. Did pretty well, I’m hoping the haul is a little bigger next time because it’s a lot of paddling. Here’s the haul. This is a large whale vertebra I found. All the shark teeth I found at Calvert. The large mako was in a fall and I was hoping it was whole but alas, the time was broke. Oh well. Still a not bad day.

    Cetacean vertebra?

    I found this vertebra sitting in the creek, washed down I guess. It is 4" long, and roughly 3" wide (at "top" and "bottom") and heavy for its size. Sides look like they may have had "wings" that were clipped off? Two pairs of closely set protuberances in the center of one "face" with almost diagonal depressions on the side. Two pale depressions at one end of the other face, with black depressions to the side above (below?) where the wings attach. Dried for over a week. Used to see a lot of big verts in the creek thirty years ago, this one is the only one I've found recently.

    Megalodon or white shark?

    Hey Guys! This one is probably a lot more obvious than I'm making it. My head says Megalodon due to the age of Bone Valley and the size, but my gut says white shark due to no Bourlette, the shape of the enamel where it meets the root on the distal and mesial side, and the serrations. So I decided to seek out an outside opinion. This is from Bone Valley Florida. Any insight is greatly appreciated!

    California Fossil Find

    what kind of tooth?

    Not sure what this is? I find a lot of what could be teeth, but this is relatively well preserved, much enamel and a striking cross banding (growth rings??) It is hollow on the root end. Unusual for me, but probably common in other areas, so hoping for a quick ID.
  14. I have been thinking about going to Iceland for quite a time, but Covid has made travelling a bit complicated, so when everyone was finally fully vaccinated, we decided to hit the road. We were told that June is actually one of the best months to visit Iceland – with the summer (which over there starts in April) in full swing, with crazy 15 to 20 degrees C. Well… we feel super special, as THIS June was actually the coldest in 45 years, so … But, you’ll see what it looked like on pictures. We landed in Keflavik, and after a short stop to get the Covid test result, we started the trip aroun
  15. First I suspect is a worn ray tooth but am a bit thrown by the shape. The second I really have no clue on. Would be very grateful for any help with these. Thanks!

    Eastover Formation Bones

    This past weekend I had the chance to collect at a number of exposures along the James River in Virginia, including at several exposures of the Late Miocene Eastover Formation (Cobham Bay Member). At one of the exposures I found these two fossils. I was hoping to get some assistance identifying what they might be. Any help is greatly appreciated. @WhodamanHD@sharkdoctor@Gizmo@HoppeHunting I am fairly confident this is a shark vertebra. The only confusing piece is the hole in the middle and the slits in that hole that run to the slits on the outside of the vertebr

    Tiger shark symphyseal tooth?

    I was going through some of my shark teeth from the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene) in Maryland, and this Galeocerdo aduncus tooth caught my eye due its somewhat unusual shape (not including the fact that it's broken on one corner). I'm wondering if it might be a symphyseal tooth. From reading past forum posts, it seems like there's a range of Galeocerdo symphyseal shapes, from symphyseals that are pretty symmetrical to ones that are less so (such as mine, if it is one). For those more familiar with these teeth than I am, what do you think?
  18. Found this today at calvert cliffs. The only things I could think of that it could be were a juvenile porpoise or crocodile tooth. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Hunting Bone Valley

    The rains are increasing water depth almost daily, a hurricane is coming in, and so why not go hunting this last Friday. There was a 60% chance of rain starting about 1 pm, but we'll deal with that when and if it comes. As normal, we were finding many smaller shark teeth, most broken but a few good lemons and duskies, with an occasional Sand Tiger tossed in. I like Sand Tigers because they are relatively rare in my hunting areas. Usually, I am seeking those fossils that are not small shark teeth, and those are becoming harder and harder to find... likely due to my efforts
  20. I’ve never been collecting in the Chesapeake Bay before and am gonna visit the area soon during low tide. Which locality (beach, site) produces a good quantity and diversity of fossils. I’m not fixated on finding big megalodon teeth. I’d love to find a nice *Ecophora* and maybe some dolphin teeth. Species diversity would be nice.

    Land Hunt

    Last night about 5:30 pm, I got a call from a very good friend. He said that he and others were going land hunting for Great Whites !!! Was I interested .... Do bears....? So I considered the outlook: Drive at high rates of speed sometimes in driving rain for 90 minutes to reach the hunting site. Weather predicted as Thunder and Lightening with driving rains that was sure to raise puddle and make sucking mud that would reach my knees. Perfect !!!! I scrambled to get my gear (halogen head lamps, scuba boots, light wetsuit for the mosquitos, etc while my understanding spouse made a th
  22. Hi all! I found this strange little item at Stratford Hall on the Potomac River in Virginia, and I can’t place it...bird? Fish, turtle? Perhaps one of you has seen that be before? Many thanks! Miocene deposits btw.

    Help with ID please

    A friend of mine found this bone a little south of Calvert Cliffs state park. Is there any way to tell if it was a land or aquatic mammal?
  24. I often find these items south of calvert cliffs, but not grouped together. Could they be sea urchin spines or is it some sort of plant?

    Aurora Mine spoil pile find for ID

    Ancient Bones has been searching a box of matrix from the Aurora Mine spoil pile in North Carolina and found this specimen. She sends her finds to me for photographing, but we are not sure how to label this one. My first thought is fish teeth in a fragment of jawbone. We are hoping that someone will be able to pin it down. @Al Dente @MarcoSr Thanks for looking.
