    Mammoth Tooth

    Found this partial mammoth tooth in June 2020 in the same Wauchula area of the peace was digging in mostly sand with some fine gravel. It is worn smooth probably from sand erosion over thousands of years or maybe mammoth was very old and had worn down its teeth ? Found it like 2 1/2 to 3 feet deep and even though its only part of a tooth was elated when it showed up in my screen. Looking at this stuff is making me wish the river was low enough to go out now especially with it being so hot would be nice to be waist deep in the river. Im sorry pic isnt very sharp but girl friend isnt here and h

    Richmond ,NW Queensland ,2020

    Hello All this is a wrap up of our finds from our Richmond trips 2020 This post is about two trips combined where I visited the same location which is Richmond , NW Queensland Australia. The dig site is a public dig area which contains Cretaceous marine material from the Toolebuc formation. This site is well known for its abundant fish, shark ,marine reptile bones and rare bird/ pterosaur fossils. Growing up in the North Island of New Zealand and I have been collecting fossils since I was a kid however fossils from vertebrate animals are exceedingly rare in that area (Except Shark te

    Not my top ten list, but Live Science put this list of top 10 dino related findings of 2020. Looking back I see this as ten things that made a bad year a little better, enjoy! https://www.livescience.com/dinosaur-discoveries-2020.html

    Fossil ID #3

    This long, black, and concave fossil looks like a fin, flipper, or something to that magnitude because of how smooth and dynamic it looks and feels. Any suggestions for this?
  9. JLittlejohn

    Fossil ID #4

    This next fossil is long and thin, with lots of detail on each side. It has a slight bend and distinct marks on one end that made me think it might be a tooth of some kind, but maybe not from something in the ocean/sea. Any thoughts?

    Fossil ID #2

    This looks like the half of a Meg tooth that has lost all of its enamel. I haven't seen one like this before, but it has all of the characteristics of a meg tooth. Can anyone confirm or debunk this?

    Help with Fossil ID

    I found this while walking on the beach before sunset today. Need help identifying it, if possible. Based on limited research and comparisons, the fossil is no doubt a vertebrae and looks very similar to some I have seen associated with a Mosasaur. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP OR IDEAS THAT MAY BE GIVEN!!!

    ID this ?dino?

    ·Big Brook, NJ, USA ·Panned fr brook bottom w marl+ ·Miocene form. overlaps Late Cretaceous? .Attach: images of 2 fossils .(found pre-2020) I assume these (3+1) fossils may be from the "same" species, two diff. animals? No outstanding horizontal/diagonal "veins" from the prominent central ridges. Rookie request to ID b4 summer trip to c Dr. Parris, NJ St. Museum, Trenton. Thx
  13. Went to Zolfo Springs, Pioneer Park to put in for a trip on a very pleasant 92 degree Easter Sunday. Lots of people out, but most were doing the social distancing thing......many were not. As usual I was alone for most of my time on the river and it did turn out to be a rather productive day. Horse, camel/llama, gar, gator, Giant Tortoise, turtle, tons of shark teeth and the most interesting finds, 2 unusual osteoderms (top center in the picture). Using the 1/4" screen again to save my right arm muscles, slows down the process, but the tiny stuff makes the day feel more productive than shoveli

    Meg Symphyseal tooth?

    Went to the Peace River yesterday to beat the cold front and rain for a very pleasant 85 degree day of digging with friends. My streak of poor performance continues but I found one item I thought might be of interest. First, the take for the day: Now in December of 2016 I found a small meg tooth that @MarcoSr identified as a meg symphyseal tooth, which Tony @ynot picked up at auction. This little tooth looks quite similar to me, but has a somewhat shorter blade. Is it another symphyseal tooth, or just an ordinary posterior? I may need to get a better picture of it.
  15. It's a New Year! Time for New Fossils Finds! i enoyed a post on the FB Fossil Forum of what are your "dream fossils". So this is a New Years version....what are the fossils you HOPE to find this year? I know for me, it's that danged Big Echinoid Cidarid that has been eluding me. Also, a psudodiadema echinoid. I have partials of both but really want a whole one! So, Universe, or whatever Omnipresence is Available, that's what I want to find this year! What are YOU on the hunt for? We want to know! Cidarid: (I "borrowed" the image off the internet....ya'll might recogn

    Wants for 2020

    As 2019 is coming to an end I am curious what is on people’s want list for next year. Did you get everything you wanted or is there still that elusive fossil eluding you? It’s been a varied year for me and a lucky one at that as I think it has been for many other members looking at some of the incredible fossils you have obtained this year. Hopefully 2020 is as successful if not more successful than 2019. I hope you all have a Happy New Year and bring on 2020!
  18. Once again it's time for the Paradoxides to dust off the top hat and ring in the new year. I'm eagerly looking forward to another great year of spectacular fossil treasures at TFF. Happy New Year 2020!
