  1. Was digging/sorting through my fossils this morning - had a couple that I hadn’t yet gotten ID’d and wanted to ask about! So first is this tooth I originally thought was Carcharhinus of some kind, but on a close look it’s got no serrations at all, which is making me wonder if it’s a C. Hastalis? Second up is… whatever this is. Fish mouth plate of some kind? One side of it the “bubbles” pop out, the other side they’re craters. And finally, what I originally thought was gator tooth, then thought may have been antler, and I’m now back to thinking tooth but no

    Florida find-any ideas?

    Found while sifting at Caspersen beach. Any ideas? Looks like it may be a tooth?
  3. Hi found in the peace river in Florida. I think it may be a tooth as there is enamel on the end with the opening. The pointy areas also look interesting. Any ideas?

    A Fossil A Day.....

    A Fossil A Day....keeps the blues away! Or something like that... I started an Instragram account (jamielynnfossilquest) and am posting a fossil a day, so I figured I should do that on here, to REAL fossil enthusiasts! I'm a few days behind, so I will start out with a few more than one a day but then it will settle down to One Fossil (but I will admit, I'll probably miss a few days, but I'll double up or whatever.) I'll start with Texas Pennsylvanian era, but will branch out to other locations and time periods, so expect a little of everything! So enjoy A Fossil A Day! Texas

    Possible Scute?

    Found in the peace river. Is this a glypt scute? Almost looks sandstone but not sure if fossils end up being sandstone. Any ideas?

    Peace River Find-ivory?

    Hi Found in the peace river. I’m no expert but does this look like ivory? If so, what animal? It has a slight curvature to it. There may be cross hatching but hard to see. Thanks

    Bone Valley Micro Matrix

    On my recent visit to search through Bone Valley material for megalodon teeth, I also was collect screened material to bring home to search in the Winter. I have been going through some and have been quite pleased. Here are a couple pics of my finds, I was wondering if the last 2 pics are a portion of a drumfish mouth plate? @MarcoSr

    Peace River Odds and Ends

    Just looking over some of my finds from my Florida trip. Not quite sure which are fossils and which are just stones. All help is appreciated. All were found in the Peace River. First specimen: pics 1-3; second: pics 4-6; third: pics 7 & 8; fourth: 9 & 10; fifth: 11 & 12.

    An update on Sloths

    Back in December, I found a really nice Paramylodon harlani claw in the Peace River. described in this thread. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/120010-a-fantastic-christmas-present/&tab=comments#comment-1316237 In March, I found another Sloth Claw in a different location that had produced some late Pliocene, early Pleistocene fossils. In the month before I found this claw , I found 2 sloth teeth, identified as P. harlani. I made a foolish assumption that the claw was also P. harlani because that was a likely species in that location. Fast forward to las

    I was just checking to make sure, I found this in a dredge in Florida a while back (definitely the best condition mammal from the dredge). Is it bison, or some huge llama, or even cow. Thanks!

    Peace River ID help

    Hoping to get some help identifying some finds from this weekends hunt. The second piece is pretty beat up but I hope there is enough left for an Id. The third is a tiny intact bone that may or may not be fossilized. Thank you!

    Venice Beach Find-what is it?

    Found in Venice Florida beach. Any idea? I’m showing both sides

    Peace River Finds - ID’s needed

    Went hunting at Peace River today - found a bunch of stuff that I’m unsure of what they are. Still very much learning! So any ID’s on the following would be awesome: 1. Starting off with a bone - I’m mostly sure it’s a bone and not actually a fossil, but still no clue what from: 2. Also bone, but this one is definitely fossilized: 3. I’m assuming this a tooth, but I’m not sure if that’s right or what it’s from if so: 4 + 5. Two things I think are osteoderms/scutes, but also not sure what from:
  15. Jumped at the chance for my daughter to join me for a couple of days of digging the Peace and although we didn’t find anything big the smalls kept us more than busy and the variety of finds was enough to put a smile on her face. The weather on May 20th was perfect with the river low and slow and scattered rain - we decided to try a new area and found some good gravel and it did not disappoint. Lots of sharks teeth, and enough other goodies kept us busy and we put in a full 8 hours of sifting. Day 2 - what a change ! Overnight rains ended about 9 am and we found the river had risen close to a
  16. Hey all, We live in Tallahassee and I want to go fossil hunting for my birthday in August. Around me we have some marine fossils (mainly crinoids and the like) so I'd like to try to find somewhere in the peninsula to find something a little different. I don't want to have to drive 4-5 hours to Tampa/Venice area, so I was looking for some tips. In my research there are some fossiliferous formations near the Suwannee, but I don't know how often they are found cropping out. Thanks!

    Fossil identification help

    Found these on Caspersen beach. Not sure as to what either could be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance

    Possible Coprolite, maybe?

    Found this in some gravel near peace River - not sure if this is coprolite or not, wanted to get some opinions! Still very new on identifying most fossils.

    Peace River Mystery Molar

    Hey so I got a grab bag of Peace River teeth and this was by far the biggest. I thought bison at first but it seems too big and bulky, but I'm open to being wrong. Pics below.

    I was out hunting the Peace River yesterday, and then went to my local fossil club meeting, last of the season doing a swap & sell, show and tell session. There were some impressive finds this season. I did not get a lot of photos but the TFF member sitting at my table had these: Matched pair of Mastodon 8 humpers. That's a great find. I always sign up for the Club Raffle, which has a lot of items donated by club members and I won. Went to the fossil table and selected this ziplock bag of coral fragments: I recognize that Rose Coral (Manicina areolata) and w

    It doesn't look like a tusk

    Im not sure what this is and would like some help figuring it out. It was found in Manatee county, FL where a new lake was being dug up. I did find half of a Gomphothere molar very close to it, but I also found anything from whale, meg, mammoth, sloth, horse, turtle etc. All around it. It's kinda flakey in some areas, but doesn't appear to be enamel. It has a flat surface and round... Maybe a mandible?? IDK

    What is this fossil?

    I believe i found it as a kid where they were clearing a large wooded area in clearwater Florida, but my memory might be mistaken. Early 1970s. Thanks, Paul
  23. Well, I had hoped to post a long and triumphant report about what a great expedition we had and how many wonderful fossils we found. This post will not be that. After six years away, @joshuajbelanger and myself mounted an expedition to return to a secret honey-hole area we frequented many years ago when we had access to a piece of private property on a remote stretch of the Peace River. This spot produced many quality fossils and we did our best hunting here around 2014-2016. We hadn't been back since December 2016. Without access to private property, we had to launch f
  24. While on Sanibel Island, Florida, I decided to visit a “fee site” called Bone Valley Fossil Farm, located in Bowling Green, Florida. I ran across this site a couple weeks ago while searching the internet. I made a reservation last week to visit today. It has been in existence I believe for several months. It is located on a family farm and the owners excavate down to the fossil layer and then bring the material to the “Searching Stations” and parcel it out in sections. The nice thing with the way that they do this is that your car is 20 feet away from the section that you selected to hunt.

    Bone Valley Find

    I’m currently at a pay site, collecting Bone Valley fossils. An individual next to me found this bone fragment, can someone identify what it is? It looks familiar, but what it is is not coming to mind right now. @Shellseeker
