  1. Lmsolliday

    Vertebra ID

    Anyone know what this might be from? Found on in shell beds on beach in northeast Florida.
  2. So found this today - my immediate thought was canine. Originally thought no enamel - but I brushed it, with a tooth brush - and it’s got white enamel. So… any help is appreciated! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker After brushing:

    pine cone


    In the Early Pleistocene, about two million years ago, this pine cone cob was driftwood in the paleo Santa Fe River. The waterlogged wood sank to the bottom in a basin in the river channel. They became buried in a highly organic mud during seasonal flooding. This anaerobic, low-energy burial preserved fine details such as bark and even insect borings. The cob is thoroughly mineralized with apatite -- it 'clanks' when two pieces are tapped together. It is not "silicified" as labeled. This pine cone cob is dated biochronologically by the vertebrate fossils also found in the mud, nota

  4. Shorter trip report today - but I caught my white whale! Or in this case - blue shark. Finally got a Meg over 3 inches, and it is perfect. Anyway: Megs and Frags: 3 Hemis 1.5” or over and a lower Mako: A pathological, double-tipped bull shark tooth (First ever pathological tooth I think.): And a really pretty piece of turtle shell, chunk of tusk, a tarpon scale, an Equus astragalus, and a tridactyl horse ectocuneiform (pretty sure on that last one, tentative ID):
  5. Lmsolliday

    Tooth ID requested

    So, since I now don’t trust myself to identify even the two types I thought I knew, what’s the consensus on this one and why is it so light? Found on Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
  6. Another bone valley ID - read this thread and I’m pretty sure it’s an ectocuneiform and not a Magnum or navicular. Measures 30x19x6.5mm. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @fossillarry
  7. Meganeura

    Bone Valley Astragalus ID Needed

    Found this Astragalus today - and I can’t figure out if it’s Horse or Tapir. Seems too big to be a tridactyl horse astragalus, but the deposit I was digging in does NOT contain Equus - only tridactyl horse fossils have been found. Which leaves me thinking Tapir. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker

    Could this be a camel tooth?

    Outside of strolling the beach and finding shark teeth, I am a complete novice to fossil hunting. I recently hiked the Moonshine Creek trail in the San Felasco Park, located near Gainesville, FL. I found this mysterious tooth. I thought it might be a horse tooth, but a friend thinks it could be a tooth from an extinct camel. Any ideas on what I found?
  9. Lmsolliday

    Shark teeth ID requested!

    New collector seeking help with ID…I tried to research on my own and seem to only get more confused. Trying to learn!
  10. Lmsolliday

    Teeth ID

    Promise this is my last one…I’ve been storing these up to figure out what they might be! All found on Ponte Vedra Beach in Northeast Florida.
  11. Lmsolliday

    Various (bones?)

    Who loves the sound of fossils tinkling against each other? Just me? What, oh what, could these be? Picture of fronts and then of the backs. You guys are so educational and kind to newbies.
  12. Lmsolliday

    Seeking identification

    Do I have this right - Pufferfish mouth plates with red arrows. Next picture is reverse sides. Found in northeast Florida, Ponte Vedra Beach.

    6 small upper horse teeth

    My last time out hunting was 2 weeks ago, just before the deluge. Found some nice items including 2 small upper horse teeth, and then stopped at a hunting friend's home, where he sold me a number of fossils, including 4 additional small horse upper molars. 1st tooth I believe to be Merychippus from the Miocene of Florida. I found/donated one of these to Richard Hulbert, Florida Museum of Natural History 18 months ago. It looks like some HSBs --- Hunter_Schreger Bands are more easily discernible than on Equus teeth. Tooth #2.... One of my finds... a Nannippus I think... there
  14. (Decided to do a bit of a different trip report this time - actual story to it, so it’s a bit longer. If you want to just see the finds, skip to the end!) So @Done Drillin and I had been individually exploring a certain tributary and sharing spots along it, and decided we should meet up and explore together yesterday. So as I’m bringing some of the stuff down to the water to load into the kayak, I see a little something poking out of the water. Should’ve taken a pic, but it ended up being this: A partial, left P4 Dire Wolf tooth. So I’m already thinking… well,
  15. So couple ID’s needed from today… 2 partial carnassials that I’m 99% certain on but would like confirmation, and 1 partial canine that I’ve got no clue on. Partial carnassials - Dire Wolf, right? It’s gotta be: And the canine - found in the same spot as one of the above teeth, but I don’t want to make any assumptions, so… @Shellseeker do you think THIS one could be smilodon? But really - big cat? Seems too blade-like for ursid or canid, but I could be totally wrong.
  16. I'd love some help identifying this fossil! The eggs(?) we found in the same area and depth. My current guess is that it's a fossilized turtle carapace?

    Help IDing Florida fossils

    When I go home to Venice, FL I love to look for teeth and fossils. here is some of what I found I either can’t identify or desire validation! thank you 68426771997__5583E755-C0FD-4396-A04A-2F9E53A72A4A.MOV 68426792269__A09ADDCB-E33C-4D7F-88C4-CF73B34B434D.MOV 68426811878__150BA012-C156-445C-AD0D-BD3797AA4993.MOV 68426832807__D54E3555-54E4-468C-8970-64518085AFF6.MOV 68426858651__539C17A0-7384-474E-AC0F-B69A84A6B412.MOV
  18. So I recently found an at-the-time unidentified small armadillo osteoderm in Paynes Creek. I immediately assumed due to its overall thickness - that being much thicker than the Dasypus bellus osteoderms I’ve found - as well as where I found it, that it was an osteoderm from the much rarer Pachyarmatherium leiseyi. My first step in confirming this was google, to which I found incredibly little information to discern between the two. There was plenty of info on D. bellus, however. My next step was to check here, including the thread that @Shellseeker had created and linked me when I found

    Peace River bone ID

    So was sorting some older fossils and came across this one - originally I had it in my “random bone bits” drawer - but it looks relatively complete albeit somewhat worn. My initial thought was something similar to an astragalus - some kind of joint. Wondering if an ID might be possible. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Brandy Cole
  20. So went hunting a few times this weekend - and I found myself a spot! It produced, and produced, and produced some more, and may still have some left to give, though I probably won’t be going back for a couple weeks. Surprisingly, no Megs. Couple tiny frags. Shark teeth in general were relatively scarce here, but that’s okay - I was hunting for mammal stuff anyway. So to start off with my best find - an absolutely stunning, complete, most of the roots still there, Tapir tooth: Following that up with a spectacled bear molar cap: An opossum jaw with 4
  21. Forgot to ask about this one yesterday! Just a fragment, but hopefully enough for an ID - my initial thought was bison but I’m sure horse is also possible!
  22. Last IDs needed for the day - 2 claw cores, a bone I’m not sure on, what I originally thought was a broken armadillo osteoderm but now is looking deliberate (especially since I found 2 similar ones), and a chunk of a vertebrae 1) Starting with the armadillo osteoderm/ear bone: 2) Then the bone: 3) The vertebrae: 4) Claw core 1: 5) Claw Core 2: Thank you very much in advance! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Brandy Cole

    Strange bone chunk

    Another find from just now - big chunk of bone - about 3 inches/75mm I think. Got definite Features. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker Sorry to tag you guys again - you’re great at this though
  24. Meganeura

    Payne Creek Canine ID

    Just found this canine - really bad at IDing canines, and it’s decently worn. My only guess is Tapir? It’s about 30-35mm by the looks of it.
  25. WEBPDQ

    Hollow fossil

    I found hollow fossil this in a creek bed in Alachua County. I would really appreciate help identifying it. Thanks.
