    Equus Long Bone

    Unknown long bone. Found in Pleistocene material. Inland, Venice, Florida. Specimen measures 62mm wide x 46mm. Canal in pic: L5 is 13mm wide. I have found Equus teeth in same location. Overall length of this hollowed bone is 123mm to break. I could not find an image for the joint surface to compare. I recovered the Equus tooth (EQ_L7) in the same location. It is a M2, left (upper molar). Thank you for your ID assistance. -Regards, Michael

    Unknown Vertebra in Venice

    Unknown fossil. Found in Pleistocene material. Inland, Venice, Florida. Specimen measures 65mm x 60mm. Smooth portion is 42mm high. I have found both Equus teeth and alligator jaw in same location. This item is a first for me. It appears to be possibly a caudal vertebra? Image 2 has a concave surface. Image 4 has a convex surface like it would match up with another concave surface. I think I have seen a photo of it before somewhere but I don't recall. Thank you for your ID assistance. -Regards, Michael
  4. 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 dyi
  5. I found this large humerus several years ago on a gravel bar on the Kansas river. Everything was pretty picked over that day but I noticed a small bit of bone protruding from the gravel and sand. I dug this up and thought it to be just from a large elderly (arthritic? growth on distal end) Bison antiquus however now I am not so sure. I took photos with the humerus next to a humerus from an American Bison and it just seems to be on a different level. It is quite heavy and mineralized and is just shy of 20 lbs. I know during the pleistocene the woodland musk ox Bootherium bombifrons has been f

    Horse Cannon Bone Question

    So I've been hitting the Brazos River pretty steadily all year for Pleistocene fossils, but aside from some astragali, the only perfectly complete bones I've been able to find are two Equus metacarpals ( cannon bones). I'm not sure if this post belongs in this section of the forum since I'm not really looking for an ID (unless I'm wrong and one of the bones isn't Equus after all), but instead wanted to ask a question about the bones' anatomy. That's because although they both look exactly the same and are both clearly cannon bones from what I'm positive are horses, they each have different len

    Camel Teeth ... Maybe?

    Inland Venice, FL tooth recovery. Pleistocene material. Found an Equus tooth approx. 15 feet from this on recently excavated, permission granted property. I think it is a camelid tooth x 2. Can't find a close match online, gallery, or textbook. The two teeth together are 27mm wide. This is the first time I have found teeth attached to a jaw fragment. ID assistance appreciated. Looking forward to numerous fossil recoveries after storm passes by my home on Tuesday. -Regards, Michael

    Unknown Florida Vertebrae

    UNKNOWN INCISOR TOOTH?

    Greetings, Unknown tooth, possible incisor. It is a lot bigger than Equus cheek teeth I have found in area. Pleistocene material, inland Venice, FL. Occlusal surface is 2cm x 3cm. Tooth is 4cm tall x 3cm wide. Occlusal surface is shiny. Large Vertebrae found 20 feet away in spoil pile. See attached photo. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Vertebrae is 5 inches x 5 inches
  11. Hi everyone! I recently got some Florida Pleistocene fossils and I'm having some trouble identifying them. I think the first is a wolf molar and the third is either a turtle or alligator claw but beyond that I'm stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Tooth, tusk, or bust?

    My best guess is a peccary tusk for this fossil found in the middle peace river. I would love member feedback, thanks. Jim

    Another day in paradise

    Hunting trip to the Peace River. This is my day "job". The weather is very hot... mid-90s Fahrenheit, little breeze. It is very nice to be standing in a river. With the sun bearing down, I frequently submerge to my chin to cool off. We anticipate afternoon thunderstorms to roll in and soak us. Sometime thunder and lightening add to the experience. Usually there is insufficient time to reach cover before getting drenched. Sooner or later we'll get enough days with thunderstorms that will refill the river from its current low levels. Today is a sorting and photo taking day, wh
  14. Greetings, I have only been actively recovering fossils for the past 12 months. Fortunately, as a forensic science teacher, my work schedule allowed me to search approximately 200 days during this time. My interest in Equus is strong based on growing up on a horse farm. After finding my first Equus tooth in Venice, FL, I was hooked. I have been reading: textbooks, The Bulletin of the Florida State Museum, Biological Sciences, and numerous FF members' galleries of photos. I have learned a lot during this journey. I want to share information I have received from Dr. Richard C. Hulbert Jr

    Venice, FL Horse Teeth, Equus?

    Greetings, Unusual caramel colored tooth recovered from land spoil in East Venice, FL. I understand this tooth is not complete, most likely a lower tooth and not that worn. unusual ridges on the sides. Unlike any other equus tooth I have found. I spent around 15 hours going through the ID galleries from the forum as well as Fruitbat's library. I'm reaching out for help with this one. Additionally, I have recovered an unusual amount of fossils from this 80' x 80' parcel. Iron content in this location results in most fossils colored reddish/brown. I'm hoping the tooth ID w

    Unknown VERTEBRAE Venice

    Vertebrae from inland Venice, Florida. Land find. 57mm wide x 75mm high. Side A to Side B measures 52mm. Pleistocene material found in this site. I found a glyptodont osteoderm in this area last week. ID assistance appreciated. I am also looking for a "handy guide" on vertebrae identification. If you can point the way that would help me with several other Vert I have recently found. -Regards Michael

    Alligator Vertebra?

    Found this almost complete vertebra on the Brazos River near Houston several months ago, missing only one of the larger processes and one of the smaller ones. I initially assumed it was just another horse or bison vertebra which are pretty common around here, but after looking at it again I realized that, although worn, one side is convex and the other is concave like in reptile vertebrae. After looking at some pictures online it bears some resemblance to alligator vertebrae. If that's what it is I would be overjoyed since the only other alligator material Ive found before is a single osteoder

    UK Vertebrae ID

    I'm trying to help someone ID some vertebrae they found recently. They were found in east London, around 4 meters underground in black sticky soil. My first thought was that they looked similar to dolphin vertebrae, and my knowledge of stuff like that isn't great, so any help would be much appreciated! (Actually, I've just realised they're probably from a bison or something similar - I haven't a clue when it comes to mammal verts. The black preservation seems odd though.)

    Abnormal pet wood or bone/tooth (Conroe, TX)

    Frequently see pet hardwood along the San Jacinto river West Fork. This piece does not have the normal shape or tracheid/ray pattern of wood. I don’t recognize the ridges and I see small consistent pores at several faces. The wide depression in the middle reminds me of a Proboscidea tooth. From the right angle, it appears there may have been symmetry to either side. Any feedback appreciated. Thank you all!

    Mystery Texas Mammal Tooth

    I've had this tooth for about a year now after I found it on the Brazos River near Houston last summer. It's definitely fossilized and has the exact same texture and weight to it that all of the other fossils I've found in roughly the same area do. As far as I can tell the whole tooth is still there, but unfortunately the occlusal surface that makes identification the easiest is almost completely worn down, I'm assuming by the animal's age at the time it died. I've tried matching the shape of the top of the tooth with others I've found pictures of, but the issue is the pea-shaped "pinche

    Bones...big bones

    Out again today (4th day this week) trying to beat the summer rains. Big focus is bones, two of them. The 1st bone seems to me to be a Calcaneum. The 2nd Bone.
  23. I found this vertebra in Bartow county Florida along with some other mammal Pleistocene fossils. It was found in close proximity to some deer antler pieces and Mastodon incisor pieces. I found an almost identical vertebra online that said that it was a giant ground sloth vertebrae. The piece is heavily mineralized. Any opinions on this vertebra would be greatly appreciated. It has a diameter of 2 1/2 inches and a width of 1 1/2 inches.

    Calcaneum ID

    @Harry Pristis Harry, I need your help on an ID and discussion of Florida Calcanea. These are great photos Harry, but I have found one that does not quite fit. It is shorter and wider than the examples. I think that the one I have found here may be Palaeolama mirifica and the camel calcaneum in your photos may be Hemiauchenia macrocephala. What do you think? As always, thanks for your expertise. Jack
  25. Hi folks, Found a couple of mystery bones in the brook today, would appreciate thoughts on if these are modern or Pleistocene #1 - some sort of vertebrae, very lightweight so i'm thinking modern maybe deer? #2 best guess is a beaver tooth? unsure on if modern or not #3 fairly long bone, feels much heavier/more solid than I would expect Thanks,
