    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

    Bones in TX

    Found some bones sticking out of the creek bank in Central TX. Area has confirmed Mastodon remains. Tusks and a tooth all found within 1/4 mile of this site. Bones are 12 feet below the top of the bank. I did a little digging around today to get a feel for what it could be. It appears it could be a large pelvis bone (4-5 feet wide). I also found a small bone that appears to be from the foot/toes etc. Not really sure how I should proceed. Is there any educational value in this type of bones? Who would one contact to ask? I am sure Mastodon bones are fairly common.

    Sonoma Coast Fossil (?)

    Hi! Sorry for the low-quality photos. Not sure if this a rock or fossil. It has an almost honeycomb pattern on the inside. Found at the beach on the Sonoma Coast in Northern California. Thank you for taking a look at it.

    Attaching ivory

    Hi all! I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to Attach two pieces of ivory? I tried gluing, but it didn’t work well. I stabilized it with a 50/50 clear elmers/water mixture, and it’s pretty solid now, but I don’t know what to do because I still can’t glue it.

    Tusk/Corral/Stone?

    I found my dog chewing on this in our backyard after he had been digging. I'm curious as to what it may be, and whether or not I should let him keep it! It is roughly 7 centimeters wide at the base and 13 centimeters long. Found in Fort Worth, Texas. Any information is appreciated! Thanks!
  6. Hi! Back when I was 10-12 I was hiking in Iowa when I found this "dinosaur tooth rock", which I have carried around for almost 25 years. I have always wondered if it was part of a mammoth tusk, a tooth, or maybe even a Native American whetstone. Or possibly just a weird rock? Any ideas? Thanks so much for any input!! Specs: Weighs = 2 lbs Length = 7 inches Circumference = 8.75 inches Height = 2 inches

    STH Bone/tooth/tusk?

    Hi everyone, I have what I thought was a mammal tooth until I cleaned the end off. From research online the end looks tusk like but I don't want to get over excited. Let me know what you think. Size is 1.8 inches

    Mammoth, Elephant, or Rhino fossil?

    Good afternoon everyone, Im looking to possibly buy this unique and large fossil. Just not exactly sure what it is. It’s from Indonesia.
  9. This is my second mammoth tusk of the year, but while the first I found was rock solid and all that remained was one side of the tusk, this one is whole and a lot more fragile. After getting it home I made the stupid decision to wash it off in the sink, thinking that the sandstone matrix adhering to the tusk was just ordinary sand and river gravel and would come off just as easily. Instead, the water soaked into the tusk's core and when I tried picking it up it snapped in half. It took a couple of days sitting under a window and wrapped in paper towels for the water to finally get drawn

    Possible Bone Nebraska

    Hey everyone, Posting for a buddy. He only has the one pic and not sure if he will need more or with him doing. Found in Chappell, Nebraska. Thanks in advance for any help.
  11. Hi im and amateur collector and I'm not sure if the was the right section to post this under. I purchased this tusk a couple years ago. The seller said he's had it since the 1970s. Because of the large crack from top to bottom and the inside is quite powdery. Is there and thing I can do to preserve it? Its about 6.5 feet along the curve and 120lb so I get worried when I move it. Also I see that great patina on some tusks is that something that is added 5o make it shine or does it comes out of the ground like that? Any help would be appreciated!

    Proboscidea incisor

    Hi all, I wanted to know if Proboscidea incisor is just another name for tusk... I’m considering putting in a bid on everyone’s favorite auction site, but I wanted to make sure it’s tusk.

    Tooth, Tusk or Bone?

    Found in Green Mill Run creek on 8/21/2020. Unsure if it is whale tooth, some type tusk or Bone. My original assumption was Sperm Whale but some have thought maybe tusk??

    I found a fossil but what?

    Hi I found this rock on a rock bar in a river. Looks like a fossil. It looks similar to petrified wood. Is that what it is?

    Fragment of tusk or rib bone?

    I’m not sure what I have here, my best guess is a portion of tusk or rib. As always, I appreciate everyone’s knowledge and help! I’ve created a light box and started adjusting the exposure to help with quality photos. Thanks

    Tusk Stabilization

    This is a tusk I recovered from a river sand bar in Iowa 24 hours ago. The tusk was in somewhat damp sand. It started to degrade right away once it was unearthed. I wrapped the tusk in a towel but it did dry out a bit. I got it home about 5 hours later and re-wrapped it in damp towels. I am writing this post to spell out my plan based only on reading some other posts but not based on any experience. I would appreciate any advise. What am I missing or doing wrong? -Add many zip ties to hold tusk together. Leave crusted-on sand for now. -Wrap with damp towels

    Tusk?

    Just wondering if this was the end piece of a tusk and from what if so or is it just a normal tooth?
  20. Greetings everyone! I'm hoping someone might be able to help ID something that is not in the best of condition/shape. It's quite unusual from what I typically see/find here in Eastern NC - at first I was thinking the root of a whale tooth but it's not like any I've seen/found myself before. So, I'm hoping someone might be able to give direction if this is a tooth root or maybe even a small tusk root, possibly? There is only a tiny bit of enamel present on the tip where the tooth would be and the texture on the "inside" is somewhat similar looking to what I'd see in whale or maybe even a sliv

    Big brook finds again!

    Hello again. Ive been to big brook a couple times and have some more interesting pieces! So here we have two raptor teeth, a dwarf mammoth tusk and a dire wolf tooth...just kidding but hoping there as unique as im saying. The "theropod" teeth may just be worn shark teeth or enchodus. And the other two modern? So 4 things in total though. Thanks anyone.

    Possible bone/tusk

    Hi, I found this in Florida, it’s 3 5/8 inches long and was found on the peace river.
  23. Hello everyone! I found this elephant tusk in the desert a few months ago, everything I find here is very brittle, and this is no exeption. I have already set the small unstable fragments with a very small layer of super glue. Should I use paraloid? I haven't been able to find any in this country, is there any other more common substance I can use (I've heard bad things from wood glue). I still want to remove some of the matrix, but I am unable to do so because of the fragility of the fossil. Thanks in advance.
