Found them when I was 9-10 and I have not found any more since.
They were found with my shark teeth.

My grandpa was digging in a construction site in Texas and supposedly found a piece of a mastodon tusk.
Fossil Collector: Irish Boy
[Editor: Hmm...tricky. Fossil ivory can often have this chalky, cracked appearance, but so can a number of minerals. Any fossil tusk fans out there care to leave a comment to help identify this? Fossil tusk or not?]
I bought it at a garage sale.
Fossil Collector: Grayson C.
[ We are becoming a big fan of those garage sale finds! My Fossil Find receives a lot of submissions similar to this. In general it appears to be a tooth from a modern cow, but the age is always difficult to determine. Any thoughts? ]
Walking the beach looking for shells and found this. Surprised to find a bovine type tooth on the beach!

Claw found on the ground in West Texas on a ranch, north of Big Bend National Park. I found this about 15 years ago on the ground while looking for arrowheads and have always wondered what type of claw this is. I'm certain it's a claw because it is really similar to a big-cat claw (mountain lion).

[Note: We can't tell if the claw is a fossil from the picture. Perhaps someone knows more about Texas fossils? Please leave a response.]
