    Rodent jaw

    I found this mandible (I think) near Bloomington, Indiana over the weekend and was wondering if anyone could give me an ID on it. I believe it's the mandible of a rodent, but that's about as far as I get. Seems to large for a mouse or rat, but maybe a muskrat, shrew (if those are bigger?), or squirrel? And I'm guessing it's more recent rather than fossil?
  2. Good morning! Found this little interesting tooth in my Post Oak Creek matrix. Did a bit of online research and have concluded (tentatively) that it is a vole molar, possibly Pleistocene? I don't think it's modern because of the coloration. I have seen that fossil rodent teeth have been found in POC matrix. What do y'all think? Size 4mm
  3. With my last project wrapping up, this small skull was sitting on my desk and needs to get done. Way too much of my collection is in a half done state. Eumys is a cricetid, which includes modern voles, hamsters, mice and rats. When identifying one, the primary character I use is the shape of M1 and the fact it has no premolars. It's the only White River rodent I'm aware of with 3 teeth in the maxilla, most have 4 or 5 (I am prepared to be contradicted ) . M1 is very distinctive in that it has 5 cones. My plan is to remove the matrix from the side of t

    Peace River Incisor?

    Found this on my 2018 trip to Florida, I believe it is a rodent incisor and I would like to confirm that. And if it is, does anyone have any indication as to what variety it belongs to? It's about 2 cm long.
  5. Found these little fragments when looking around in Post Oak Creek near Sherman, Texas. To me they resemble rodent teeth, and I've certainly found non-fossilized ones out there, but these are definitely fossilized. Any idea what they could be? Largest fragment is 16mm long and 4mm wide. Close up shot is the wider end of the fragment, which shows a really cool cross section of the piece.

    Metatarsal bone found in cave

    I found this in a large shelter outside of Austin, Texas. The cave was scattered with Flint and various animal bones.
  7. TXV24

    Rodent Cheek Tooth

    Cheek tooth from the theridomyid rodent Isoptychus sp. Collected through screen washing of matrix from the 'White Band' a shallow freshwater lacustrine horizon.

    Rodent Incisor

    Lower incisor from the theridmoyid rodent Isoptychus. Collected from a thin lacustrine horizon in the Lower Hamstead Member of the Bouldnor Fm. at Bouldnor Cliff, an early Oligocene locality on the northwest coast of the Isle Of Wight, UK. Identified by mammal specialist Jerry hooker from the Natural History Museum.
  9. I am interested in a specific ID of this piece of rodent mandible. When I found it I immediately assumed it was mouse but then I decided maybe it is a bit too big for a mouse so I started studying small rodent dentition charts and was amazed at all the variations in the molars. Another hour in the internet rabbit hole (no pun intended). 7/8" in length (22mm), found in Florida's Peace River in a mix of Miocene and Pleistocene material.

    squirrel tooth

    Found this in a creek off the Rappahannock River mixed in with Found this in a creek off the Rappahannock River, Virginia mixed in with shark teeth. Curved (semi-circular), chisel on one end (two tone color), hollow on other end. No idea what the stuff stuck to it is.

    Rodent lower jawbone ID

    I found this in a creek leading to Grove Lake in Antelope county NE (near Ashfall fossil beds) I've found a lot of bone fragments and teeth there before, but this find was particularly interesting. Anyone know what type of rodent it is from and if it is from the same time period as the many mammal fossils at ashfalls?

    rodent jaw?

    Here's another jaw I found on the Brazos River. Hope someone can help me id it. The total piece is 4 inches long and the length of the longest tooth is 3/8inch across the top of the crown.
  13. Found this little mandible today. Galveston Bay dredge spoils late Pleistocene. Unfortunately no teeth but does this look like Leporidae? If so rabbit or hare? Darrow

  22. I collected some micro-matrix gravel while hunting a site in the Peace River that had a good abundance of mammal fossils. My hope was that there would be some micro mammal fossils as well. I seemed to have guessed correctly as I turned up this nano molar which I assume is rodent based the size (~1.7 mm diameter across the occlusal surface x 2.7 maximum height to the end of the one remaining root). I tried to get a clear image of the occlusal surface but believe me something this small is hard to hold and keep in the focal plane. Would be interesting to see if Rich or any of the others who migh
