  1. Lone Hunter

    Proximal phalanx?

    I'm horrible with bones so could be way off on this. Came from creek that's mostly QAL, it does not burn or smell and can't scratch it. Closest I could find is deer but they all look so similar! It has a reddish color, is that from staining?
  2. Lone Hunter

    Cow or bison bones?

    First let me say I did the burn test having never done it before, got the same faint smell from each. Then had to burn some of my hair for comparison, omg that was horrible! So I'm not sure ad far as that. All these came from part of creek in Dallas county that is very close to Trinity river, it is QAL on one side QT on the other. I know the smaller bone isn't cow just thought it was interesting. So I'm ready for my lesson in bones!

    Large Hoof Core

    I immediately thought toe bone or hoof core, but it did not look like Equus or Antiquus, too big ( 2.5, 2.25, 1.6 inches) to be Camel/Llama or tapir... ). I have looked around the forum and interent. Tapir seems to be closest, but I say that with little confidence.

    Horse, of course?

    Dear Fossil Forum, We have continued to visit the Brazos near Houston, and it has turned up horse. Teeth, a proximal phalange, and what I think is actually not horse, but a tapir calcaneus! My latest find is a vertebra, and it looks like thoracic vertebra 18 (T18). But, in comparing it to a photo of a modern horse example, the facet for rib attachment is smaller in proportion, and lots of other details look a little different as well. Does anyone know of good resources for researching fossil horse ancestor vertebrae? Or know if there is variation in contemporary vert s

    Turtle scute?

    I found this rock on Ocean Beach in San Francisco. I have In the same area over the past few weeks recovered several fragments of Sand Dollar fossils probably about two million years old, according to a local geology/oceanology professor who recognized them right away. I am wondering if this rock might be a turtle scute as I have seen similar looking samples online that were Holocene turtle scutes. The sand dollars were the first fossils I’ve ever found outside of fossilized clams so I have no problem if this is just a rock. Many thanks in advance for the expert guidance and help.

    Canid Tooth

    I found this tooth while looking for fossil crabs in Galveston this week. It is 5/8’’ across. Looks to be from a canid of some sort but not sure what. Looks large for a coyote.

    Hunting with Sacha

    No, not Sacha from Disney's Peter and the Wolf, no, not Sacha from Casablanca..... @Sacha So we went hunting yesterday meeting up with a couple of other fossil seekers in a location that has been very, very good to me in the last decade, but has taken a lot of hunting pressure and is not what it once was... However I can always hope to catch lightening in a bottle... or in my case, a fossil in the sieve. Nice day, a little cool, but 3 of us had wet suits on and I was comfortable. There was a younger guy from Minnesota, who was hunting in his bathing suit!!! I used to be young o
  9. Ancient Bones, old bones and husband Dennis, along with Annie the rat terrier were joined by my brother and his wife on a trip to the Carolina coast. All of the following fossils were beach finds. I am posting for Ancient Bones and myself. Here are some of our favorite finds. Ancient Bones found this great alligator osteoderm. and several of these Burrfish mouth plates. She also found nice ivory fragments like this one. These are some of Ancient Bones various ray crushing teeth including Aetobatus, Plinthicus stenodon, and My

    First for my collection

    Found this a couple of days back... how hard could it be to identify? A lower predator mandible with 1 complete carnassial and two half teeth, vertically split. How many small predators existed in the Florida fossil record? Look at the m1. That is different from both the canid (fox, coyote) m1 and felis (margay, bobcat) m1 you can find on TFF ID threads. So I checked out raccoon and possum ... nope!! Then I started looking at research papers comparing different type of predator m1s. I was always looking for the smaller predators. Then I stumbled on an old TFF thread, http://www.t

    An odd bone

    Out hunting today, and doing some prospecting. The weather was supposed to be warmer (high of 79), and the air was fine, but the water was cold. We had 3 hunters, but not many unique finds, a nurse shark and an unusual bone, neither found by me. When I say unusual, we are 3 experienced fossil hunters, and none of us has an ID.. Hopefully TFF can assist.

    Osteoderm, but from what?

    The boney armor plates that I have found have either been giant armadillo or Glyptodont or Alligator. This one I found years ago doesn't look like any of those, but maybe it is just from a different area of the animal? Thoughts? Thanks!

    big brook cervical vertebra

    My daughter found this at Big Brook NJ. It was loose at the bottom of the stream. I don't think it is a cow, horse or deer, but it could be pleistocene. I just joined the forum, and hope this works. Thanks

    Dugong or Manatee

    This is an excellent find, but I am unsure how to identify it and I also wanted to share the moment. Why excellent? Any fossil tooth with complete roots is rare and any Manatee or Dugong molar in any shape is rare for me. In 10 years , I have found 5 or 6 of these in Peace River hunting. So my question: Can a Trichechus manatus molar be differentiated from a Metaxytherium floridanum molar and , if so, which is this fossil? Details : Crown height - 45 mm, Crown length - 26 mm; Found in Peace River Watershed. Thanks for all comments and suggestions!!!

    Sm raptor claw

    I was introducing my great_nephew Jake to the Peace River, he foscused in "small, tiny" fossils and found some good stuff... One was shark teeth, and the other a claw. looks birdlike to me so calling on @Auspex to help ID or just speculate. The 6mm shark teeth: The 7 mm claw: All suggestions and comments appreciated.

    2 Canines

    Continuing a streak of good luck. Recently, I was digging in a semi-productive location and a small canine showed up. I recall that it was the last fossil I noted while searching the sieve. An interesting find. Not a clue of what it might be. At 40.5 mm, little too large for small mammals like raccoon. I did see the curious bump at the base of the root. Late in the day from the same spot, a 54 mm canine missing half of its tip. Too small for Jaguar. I have a 2.9 inch canine that looks a lot like this one.

    Saturday at Peace

    Saturday is the day I am least likely to go fossil hunting but yesterday was the exception. Another gorgeous day, sun shining, birds chirping.. I also had some interesting finds ... Some equus teeth and mammoth chunks upper left, bones upper right and a few dolphin bullas under the bones. Nothing special like tusks or large Megs. The tiny tooth lower center is a Mako: One of the mammal bones is a 1.5 inch cubonavicular, a little larger than deer (I think) may be Bos because it is not river worn.. Then a 1.25 inch small canine, I love finding canines...

    Dire Wolf Skull

    I tend to track some high end auction sites that deal in (sometimes) complete fossil skeletons. One of these is offering a Dire Wolf Skull. Since it is a for sale site, I do not link to it. However, the seller does provide DETAILED Photo enhancement capability, and the writeup is excellent. So, TFF forum rules, can I cut/paste the photos and the text to this TFF thread for all to evaluate? This would certainly fall into fair use of the materials, even if copyrighted, which I doubt. Dire Wolf. Canis dirus. Pleistocene. Nodaway River, Page County, Iowa, USA

    A Large Toe Bone

    I found this bone in the same spot that I found a Mastodon Tooth yesterday , which obviously does not mean a lot.. It is a toe bone and decent size , about 2.5 inches. Hopefully someone will recognize.
  20. Well, I think I am done. I was out on Memorial day. The water was waist to chest level. I rarely go back to back days so Wednesday the 30th was possible. I had an interesting morning -- see below. 6 inches up was barely hand-able... We left a little after noon. Did find some neat fossils: This place is worth a return visit. Interesting open cavity at the end of the root. Very fragile #s 2,3,4. I know what these are... because I have seen them previously. I find thousands of the Asian clam ,an invasive species in the Peace River but I am hoping that @MikeR

    Multiple IDs Requested

    Beautiful Day. Cold in the morning, but warmed up as the sun came out.. Same with the fossils. Initially , only small shark teeth,, but later (deeper) lots of interesting stuff. 1st, Can we tell by size whether this is Paleolama mirifica or Hemiauchenia macrocephala . Not sure but maybe there was a jaw down there. These seem to be 2 M3s, with exact similar color patterns. A Vertebrae... Dolphin or maybe Armadillo ??? and then this...I know WHAT it is.... a walnut...but it is hard like a rock and clinks!!!! Can a walnut fossilize? Whether or not it is a fossil,

    Small Tarsal or Carpal

    This is the time that my northern relatives like to seek warmer weather, so I am juggling guests, traveling , and fossil hunting... I was out Sunday and not again until today.. Once again, I went to a location that I had thought was dug out years ago, including lots of trips by me. Here is a group photo of the "best" finds... A great Butterfly osteoderm, 2 chunks of fossilized wood, a camel_llama tooth without roots, a nice 33mm Meg and a tarsal or carpal from an unknown (to me ) mammal. Extra credit for identifying what type of tree provided the wood. The tarsal/carpal is 32x2

    Puzzler

    Okay, any help with this is much appreciated. I'm inclined to write this one off as something insignificant or perhaps even a rock. However, the symmetry makes me think it is something more than that and drives me to consult the enthusiasts and experts here. If it weren't for a small broken section (most noticeable on the "front view" picture) and an area of attached matrix (most noticeable on the lower left of the "bottom view" picture), this item would be almost perfectly symmetrical. There are even two small depressions evenly spaced, one on each side, facing the viewer on the "front vi

    Curious Mammal Bone

    Was hunting yesterday in the Peace River. Good friends, sunshine, LOTS of small shark teeth, a couple of nice finds and a couple of unknowns. My BEST Meg of the day was small and broken: A very complete and large (2.5 inches across) Puffer Fish Mouthplate: A JAW with 2 teeth, I think it is raccoon but would love confirmation... and then this fossil (2.75 x 1.0 inches) for identification. This bone is complete! I thought I knew what it was before looking at the end in this last photo... Now I will look for TFF and Florida experts... Interesting foss
