  1. 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

    Pleistocene Mammal Jaw, ID requested

    hello everyone, I saw this on our favorite website. It is a mammal jaw dredged up off of Newfoundland, Canada. It is likely Pleistocene in age. The piece is approximately 12 cm in length. It is clearly an herbivore, but doesn't look like bison, horse, camel, tapir or deer to me; however, I am still learning to ID my Pleistocene mammals. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Texas Mammal Humerus

    Found this bone on the Brazos River near Houston several weeks ago. I can tell that it's a humerus of some sort, almost definitely mammal based on its size, but unfortunately both ends are missing making an ID difficult. Any help is appreciated!

    Avian Coracoid

    Here is an avian coracoid that I found on the beach in South Carolina. It is from an unidentified off-shore formation that regularly deposits Pleistocene fossils on the shore. I am hoping that someone @Auspex can ID it to genus perhaps. Thanks for looking.

    North Sulphur River Trip

    Pictures from my latest NSR trip. Some mosasaur verts and bones, a jaw, ammonites, baculites, and of course the normal array of oddities. No really good verts but still fun. Does anyone know what jaw this would have come from? Also the turtle looking shell and the large white bone next to it feel a lot heavier than recent bone to me so maybe Pleistocene. Ill send a few close ups of those and of the crazier stuff later.

    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

    Big cat distal radius?

    Peccary versus Modern Pig

    I hunt frequently. I find what I believe to be peccary teeth not infrequently. As we know , there is a problem. Modern pigs (domestic, wild, boars) have peccaries as ancestors. Teeth of modern pigs and peccaries are similar. Are the differences significant enough to be able to easily differentiate the two species. I thought they were. I am going to use a couple of @Harry Pristis fantastic photos, which remain the best resource for this discussion. In this photo of domestic pig from Florida, note the circular petal nature of of the chewing surface on each tooth.. Sort of reminds me of Gom

  10. Hello to All. Any help and input on a correct ID will be awesome. Spotted on the high tide line amongst shell and other debris. The location has seen significant fluctuations in sea levels and has produced Pleistocene material, such as horse teeth, mammoth teeth, even Rhino and Hippo teeth but also Miocene fossils like Megalodon teeth, cetacean teeth and inner ear periotic bones as well as bulla, Great White and Mako shark teeth, just to name a few. All washed ashore by tidal movement. The specimen in question was photographed alongside a horse incisor and a mammoth tooth fragment. Its cross s

    Venice Sperm Whale Tooth?

    I found my first whale tooth yesterday. Only found two cores previously. Located inland Venice, FL. This example was sheared in half longitudinally. Measures 85mm long, 48mm at widest point, 27mm diameter at point D. I find mostly Pleistocene material in this inland location. I read about only specific identifications are to the Superfamily- Physeteroidea. Anybody have other input on this tooth? My questions usually are "time period of fossil, better identification". In this inland area, I have found a half dozen bulla, a baleen whale vertebrae, and what I think is a rib. I
  12. Pleistocene land mammal bones from SC I have a significant amount of miscellaneous bone fragments from SC. Most are likely horse, camel and deer, though some could be tapir and sloth. I would be willing to trade for other regional specimens. I am creating fossil kits that I give away, so nice smaller specimens would work (ammonites, trilobites, blastoids, etc.) I can add additional similar material to enhance any trade.

    Temporal Bone?

    I think this is part of a temporal bone. It's approximately 2 x 2 x 2 inches. Not expecting a taxonomic identification, I'm just hoping someone can recognize and point out a couple osteological landmarks for me so I can orient myself with respect to adjacent cranial bones and know if I should be comparing it at the left or right side of the skull as I look for a match.
  14. I've been scarce around the forum lately and equally scarce on the river this season. I just haven't had as much time as I would like, but the wife and I finally got out again yesterday for just the second time this season. Headed out to Gardner bright and early and hit got to the ramp about 9am. Hardly anyone was there - when you pull up and see only one vehicle besides your own, then it's going to be a quiet peaceful day on the river. The weather was (is) gorgeous. High around 80, low humidity, lots of sun, and a nice breeze. You cannot ask for better river weather. We got the k
  15. Found in Ram. Looks mammalian, possibly beaver? Throwing me off because it doesn't seem modern. Any thoughts?

    Peace River Jaw

    Hi guys! I am new to the forum but am an avid 23 year old fossil hunter and artifact collector. I have been hunting for a good while now and have a large collection from all over Florida. I was recently doing an overnight camping paddle on the peace river to hunt now that the water is low, and I found many things (including some worked flint among the fossils, which was quite surprising) but this particular find I need some opinions on! I’m not convinced that it’s entirely fossilized, though what is confusing me is that it is much heavier than it should be and also did not react significantly

    Antler Tine?

    This was found in northern Florida. I thought it was a claw core, as it is definitely not a tooth. However, now I am thinking antler tine. I would love some opinions on if that's correct!
  18. Big piece of skin, is this actual mammoth skin? Seller says it's from Yakutia.

    Juvenile Mammoth

    Got up early, went out hunting to a favorite location with good friends. I had searched this spot so often that I went in believing that I would have to prospect new locations before today was over. Turned out not to be true. After 5-10 small shark teeth in each of the 1st 2 sieves, this interesting fossil fell into my lap. It is 6.5 inches long and 2.75 inches at its widest point. Going to be a great day. I will make some observations. 1) At 2.75 inches wide, it is far smaller than the width of an adult tooth and must be from a juvenile. 2) It consists of approximat

    Humerus in Venice?

    Greetings from Venice, FL. After viewing a recent post, I am interested if anyone can identify my recovery from Pleistocene material. I believe it is the distal end of a humerus. It was crushed by a tractor. Photo A shows the distal end. The dimensions on Photo A is 5cm wide. Height is 4cm. Photo B is anterior view. It would be great if anyone could identify what animal it may have come from. Thanks in advance. -Michael

    Large mammal vertebra

    This is about the most complete vert that I’ve found. I’m horrible at identifying vertebrae, but I’m going to stick my neck out (pun intended) and suggest that this is a bison cervical vert. Found on the Brazos River in SE Texas
