    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

    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.)
  4. Hello dear fellow forum members, I just encountered an offer that made me stop. the Information above is all the seller has, except for the weight of the bone (around 120 g) What do you think this could be? Thanks, J

    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
  7. 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

    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.
  9. 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
  11. 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,
  12. A couple of weeks ago I was in Southern Florida with my wife and my sons family for 8 days. My wife, my 7 year old grandson and your’s truly. During this time I was able to get out and collect fossil Pliocene-Pleistocene shells from the Caloosahatchee Formation. Collecting fossil shells is one of my favorite fossils to collect and I love it when I find complete examples. I have been to the Peace River a couple times, and even stopped there on the way home to take a look at it, it was very shallow, there was a group of people sifting, but I did not partake.
  13. Hi everyone! Ya'll where a huge help with the shark teeth I posted, so I figured I'd ask for some help with some of the more unusual stuff I've found at Post Oak Creek. For anyone who doesn't know Post Oak Creek is a small gravel filled stream in north Texas that lots of Cretaceous shark teeth get washed into from the Eagle Ford Group (shout out to ThePhysicist for clarifying the formation!). However a lot of Pleistocene material gets washed in there as well so you get this lovely set of gravel bars where you're finding stuff like crow shark and goblin shark teeth in the same sift as a bi

  15. I have a collection of bone and teeth collected in Southeast Missouri caves, usually from gravels in the cave streams. Lots of horse and bison, some camel and very rarely, saber tooth. I have images of two that are uncertain and request some more knowledgeable persons help me with identification. The images have a light blue grid that is one inch. Thanks for any guidance in advance!

    Unknown Find from San Pedro California

    A member of my monthly bug chat group is trying to figure out what this might be and I offered to post it here to get some ideas. It was dug from a hillside in San Pedro, where clams and crabs were also found. My best guess is the formation is Pleistocene Palos Verdes Sand. They have shown it to the ichthyology sections of the LA County Natural History Museum and seem to have ruled out it came from a fish. My best guess is maybe some sort of coprolite? However, its huge and I also wouldn't rule out some sort of human made artifact.

    Alligator Bones

    Not sure about others, but I realize that I am finding bones that I have yet to recognize, but think might be alligator. Found this nice comparison photo... What is the name of these bones? Are they ribs? Did I find one of them here? A couple more. I think the 2nd photo is a Calcaneum, what is the first and is either this bone?

    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!

    ø 5cm. Eemian, Pleistocene. Found at Zandmotor, Zuid Holland, Netherlands.

    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.

    A shark tooth and a Catfish spine

    I was out yesterday... No fantastic finds but a few interesting ones. A Shark tooth, 38 x 23 mm. I thought it was a Shortfin Mako, my friend said giant thresher. Help @Al Dente, @MarcoSr. What differentiates the two... The 2nd is a fish spine. I am used to seeing Catfish spines that look like the one below..... I am wondering and usually pleasantly surprised, when I reach out fro detailed knowledge on any fossil topic, in this case identification of catfish spines.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    I found this radius a while back in the Brazos river in SE Texas. This piece is about 6.5 inch long. It looks much like cat radii I see online but I'm looking for other thoughts. @Shellseeker @Lorne Ledger @Harry Pristis @garyc
