    Mystery Claw

    My apologies for the blurry picture using a coin for scale, but I took this picture in the field and I managed to damage the specimen afterward. It was originally about 5 mm long. I found this tiny claw in Green(s) Mill Run, North Carolina, last week. I cannot find a life form of appropriate size with fused claws like this. This is probably Pleistocene as all the fossils of older strata are marine and this looks suspiciously like a terrestrial predator of some kind. I did a flame test, but heated it a bit too much. The tip of the claw core disintegrated when I set it down. Modern? Regardless, I'd love to know what kind of animal it came from.

    Unidentified bone and tooth

    Hello , I have this two still unidentified pieces in my collection. A bone and a tooth. But from what ? The bone looks like If it came from a joint (flat , smooth area ). But I have no clue to which animal the tooth belongs to. Could it be that these pieces are from the pleistocene ? I found them in Hejlsminde , Denmark in a cliff. Thanks !

    Insect Head?

    Hi all! Yesterday, I was sorting through some glacial clay specimens I have from the Saskatoon area. I took most of them from an exposure because of the incredible trace fossils they contain (will post about later!). These clay layers are strongly varved and have the traditional appearance of glacial lake clay. However, interspersed amongst the layers of clay/silt are small pockets of black soil. I have read that these could possibly be bird droppings, or they could just be small lumps of soil that somehow became incorporated into the clay. In these soil pockets, plant fossils of exquisite preservation abound, but I also found this curious critter. I have no idea where to begin with it. When I first saw it, it immediately reminded me of a Triops head, but the “eyes” seem too big for that, plus the structure of the carapace would not allow for the clean line at the bottom (At least that I know of). It seems very much to me like an insect/invertebrate head, probably because it’s bringing me back to Trilobite hunting in Ontario. The two “eyes” protrude ever so slightly from the “head” when viewed horizontally. The entire structure is about 0.5 mm in total length. I also fully believe it could be some type of microscopic organism I have not yet heard of. Ostracods come to mind (I have found them nearby) but I have never seen one like this. Any insight or suggestions would be very much appreciated!

    what horned skull head is this?

    hello everyone, please help me to identify what animal of this? and this one is fosslize or nor? are this one is antelope/ buffalo/ deer/ maybe another animal? thankyouuu found in java island, thankyou so much 😭😭😭
  5. Hello to everybody! I'm kinda new here, but before I start I must say I really love this forum! It has really great vibes and you instantly can tell that this is a good and friendly community! So, I am ziggycardon, I live in Belgium, close to the border of the Netherlands and when we start speaking geologically, I live on the same cretaceous sediments as where the first major Mosasaurus discoveries where done! Unfortunatly I have never been on a fossil hunt myself and everything currently in my collection was bought or given to me. But I hope to change that soon, as I am dying to go hunting myself. Maybe the Chalk sediments 3 km from my home would be a good place to start! For the rest, my job, my major hobby and my other main interest besides fossils are living animals. I currently work as the head of terrarium & aquarium in 3 different pet stores and I have quite a collection of reptiles, amphibians, invertebrates and tropic fish myself. In my spare time I often take my own living animals along with my fossils and other educational natural history material to schools so I can teach kids about nature and it's history and hidden mechanics. For the rest are my other hobbies mainly based around movies and televisions as I collect a lot of stuff drom my favorite franchises like "Lord or the Rings" & "The Hobbit", "Game of Thrones, "Pirates of the Caribbean", ... And I also attent a lot of comic cons and other events related to those franchises. But then this topic! In this topic I will show my collection of fossils (and also minerals, stones and meteorites) as it is right now and then I will highlight each group of fossils bit by bit. I am currently starting with a own specialized fossil room, so ofcourse the progress and end result will also be posted here! And ofcourse when something get's added to my collection, I'll show it here as well. Sometimes a photo of my "special" pets or taxidermy specimens might pop up, but this topic will mainly be about the fossil room and my fossil collection. For the rest, if you have any comments or questions about the collection or about me or about anything, feel free to ask! I'd love to reply!

    Antelope ?

    Hi, i went to a fair exchange yesterday and took those bones presented as a vertebra and a calcaneum of a Paleoruyx cordieri (Antelope recticornis) from the Astian (Pliocene) sands of Montpellier, Herault department. But i can't find anything about it under that name. Maybe it hasn't the same name now. With it, was a bone of a Leptorhinus from the same place. I found out it existed in the Ruscinian (Pleistocene) of Herault.

    Weathered tooth fragment

    I am once again asking for your expertise. I’ve found this strongly weathered (suspected) tooth fragment at the Zandmotor beach in the Netherlands. This location is mostly known for Pleistocene fossils. Because it is so strongly weathered I fear that (online) identification might be difficult, but I would love to know what the experts here think. I am quite sure that it is a fossil and most likely a piece of a tooth. Especially the ribbed texture on the top right side of the first picture and the cross sections make me think of a tooth. Possible species that have crossed my mind are wild boar/pig, walrus, whale or hippo. All of these have been found at this specific beach, but some of these are considered rare finds. I’m not even sure it is one of the aforementioned species. I would love to know what you think! IMG_6171.mov

How Denisovans thrived on top of the world: mysterious ancient humans’ survival secrets revealed Nature 03 July 2024 And the open access paper is here; Middle and Late Pleistocene Denisovan subsistence at Baishiya Karst Cave Nature 03 July 2024 I found the section about using paleoproteonomics in conjunction with the more traditional morphological studies to identify the faunal remains very interesting.

    Sea Scorpions?

    Found these softball-sized rocks in a small creek at 800’ elev in southern Indiana. There are no exposed layers and these were found about 100’ below and downstream from a deposit of glacial till. Sorry, can’t give more help on the layer. When I pulled them out of the water, the rocks had these small bits attached but I wiped most away before I realized they were fossils in situ. I saved some and got these pics (sorry about the poor quality, I’m still learning how to light and shoot). They measure 1/2 “ in length. My guess is Eurypterids because of the segmented bodies and two paddle-like appendages near the head. There’s one photo where I caught the front of the critter and you can see the mouth opening. Look at the bottom of the pic. If you have any tips for how to light and background specimens for photographing, please point me in the right direction.

    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
  11. Found this equine tooth along the Nueces River in Texas. Feel like it must be fairly old. Very heavy and mineralized. Any help with identification? Thank you in advance.
