  1. Hi Folks- Similar to my post on Mazon Creek 2012...here is my post for Florida fossils in 2012. Mostly a few trips to Mazon Creek and other locations. All trips were led by Mark Renz of Fossil Expeditions.
  2. I've got an odd thing. This vaguely torus-shaped object came in a ten pound bag of Peace River gravel. The gravel is heavily time-averaged and contains Miocene shark-teeth and Pleistocene mammal teeth. My object certainly doesn't look to be part of any tetrapod's skeleton, and while it could be an invert I've got a feeling that it doesn't have any biological origin at all. I'm pretty sure it's just an oddly-shaped 'leverite,' but it looks enough like a man-made thing to arouse my curiosity. Certainly the central hole has a smooth-bored appearance. It looks for all the world like a bead -- pareidolia, probably. The doings of man don't generally hold much of an interest for me, but given where this came from, it seems like it could hail from that brief time in North American history that provides grist for the mills of paleontology and archeology -- the latest Rancholabrean. Did Clovis (or pre-Clovis, if you perfer) people even make beads? If so, do they look like this? In the pictures below the lines on the grid are 2 mm apart. We're looking at a small object here. I'm probably only fooling myself, but I'm curious. Take a look below:
  3. Hello, I will be in Florida in April with my wife and four year old son, and I wanted to take them somewhere to hunt for fossils, preferably shark teeth (Megs). We will be in Orlando (Disney) for a couple days then driving down to Siesta Key / Venice area to go to the shark tooth festival and weather permitting, do a couple shark tooth dives. However, since the wife and son will not be diving with me, I wanted to take them fossil hunting on land or in the shallow areas of the Peace River. I was wondering if anyone could please provide any information on good places a family can go to hunt / find fossils. We will be obtaining our fossil permits before we arrive so we can collect fossils other than shark teeth as well. Any help and or advise would be greatly appreciated, thank you!
  4. A Few Florida Finds

    I wanted to share a few of my finds from this year, but cannot create an album yet. These are from several different trips out to the Peace River. The lighting was not ideal, but I tried to get the photos to where you can see the finer details. If you have more info on the specific species these may belong to, please let me know. Fish Scales Fish Mouth Plates Turtle Spur Glyptodon Scutes A few teeth front and back - The one on the left may be a fish tooth, the others may be incisors but of what animal I am not sure. They all have a polished, glossy feel to them.
  5. Tusk Or Rib

    I found this in the Peace River and immediately thought it was a rib. However, looking at the cross section, I noticed the faint lines of possible growth rings. Sorry the pictures aren't fantastic, but I think you'll get the pics. Outside: Inside: Cross-section: Where the ring ends?:
  6. Peace River

    Found these "strange" fossils in the peace river. What are they? Fossil 1: Fossil 2:
  7. Unknown Bone

    I am looking at some of my finds this season and a bone from last January. I could envision a raptor claw hanging off the end, but possibly not...
  8. We went on a canoe trip yesterday in the peace river in Florida and found these among other fossils. We have been doing internet research ever since. We've been going back and forth over horse, bison, beaver... we have no idea. This is our first ever fossil outing. Please help us ameturs!!!! The teeth are about 2-2 1/2 inches long.
  9. Help Needed Identifying These Please! Mammoth?

    Can anyone help ID these? They were found in the Peace River in Florida. They have cross hair or "etched" sides-making me think that it is mammoth or mastadon. Thanks in advance!!
  10. Just got home from a fossiling trip on Joshua Creek. Didn't find anything too big and.. my favorites are the ones by the quarter.
  11. Back From Vacation

    Hello Everyone! So, it's been so long since I posted on the Fossil Forums it's almost like I'm new again! Since moving away from Florida I haven't done as much collecting, but my recent vacation took me back to the Peace River again! So I spent a day out in the water sifting the gravel and here are some shots of what I found. With the water level so low it was impressively easy to find untouched gravel beds. Here are the horse teeth I found. A few of these are in great shape and possibly from non-Equine horses. I will spend some time figuring those out later. These are a number of my more interesting finds; the top middle carnivore molar was exciting to find, for sure. I'll get better pictures in the ID section later today or tomorrow. This wouldn't be a Peace River post with out some Fragolodons. Great teeth found. Unfortunately the gigantic Hemipristis serra is broken, it would've been close to 2 inches on the long side. Here are the leftovers, several cetacean earbones, bullae and periotics. Mammoth tooth fragments, galore. And then all the funky little things I like to take home to see if I can make sense of them. Overall, it was a great trip! Probably the most productive, in terms of quantity and quality, that I've had out there. I'll be posting a few things in the ID section later, notably the broken Carnivore molar and canine tooth (or dolphin?) that is next to it. Roddy
  12. My wife and I are done here for a couple days and we would love to go fossil hunting with someone. We went out today with Mark Rentz and had a wonderful time. We didn't have any major finds but we don't mind, every thing we find is a little treasure. If there is anyone going out tomorrow and would like some fellow enthusiasts to tag along, we would love the opportunity. We are also open to advice on where we could go without a guide, we can go back to the Peace, but I figured where we were is hit hard by the guided trips..
  13. 1st about the Hemi. I found one with color (greenish yellow) instead of the normal black. Fossil buddy said once removed from the water/river bed, the color would revert to grey or black. If true, why? The color seems to be sharper in water. I found one years ago that I thought was olive green, but turned black over time. Also, identified as lower by fossil buddy. Is one or both of these a lower tooth? Next the Mammoth tooth segment. -- A strange piece, relatively small 2.5 inches. It seems that the "step sequence" of the 3 occlusal surfaces MIGHT have been created by 1) break this segment off a larger tooth, 2) break these 3 occlusal surfaces vertically, and 3) river water wear smooths the surfaces to "seem" unbroken -- Any other suggestions? This segment is 2.5 inches -- Is it a milk tooth? Is this segment a spit tooth? Is this segment from a juvenile animal? Which side of this segment is the broken side -- that which shows the occlusal surfaces or that which is smooth? Thanks for all those who help to solve my curiosities. SS BY THE WAY, double-click on any of the photos will increase the zoom.
  14. Which Artiodactyla Is It?

    http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/vertpaleo/resources/fossil_id/art_id.htm This link is a great resource for Identifying Antelope from Deer from Llama. Which one is it and why?
  15. Dermal Denticle

    One of my favorite fossils are dermal denticles. Generally they come in small packages. I usually go long periods without finding any, but picked up 2 on a trip last week. The 1st photo is what I normally identify as a Stingray Dermal Denticle, with a "key" in the middle of a round or oval button. The 2nd photo "looks" different. Can it be a denticle from a different body location on the same species? Have others found similar looking denticles in SE US? I think this one is a Rorschach test. Possibly a crab nebula or a Sumo Wrestler holding his arms high in victory or salutation.
  16. Mammal? Id

    Was out today and found some nice fossils -- Lower and upper Hemis, Deer Molar, Glyptodont Osteoderm, a possible camel tooth. I will post photos in another thread. I know most of the fossil teeth I find -- too small to be sloth but the occlusal view seems like sloth, I also checked on Armadillo --- So no clue on my part --- but some on TFF can ID this tooth. SS
  17. Cuda, Otter, Or Something Else

    Just made it out for a couple of hours today -- and then we had our local fossil club meeting.. I could not reach deeper spots because the river is still high, but I did find some nice small fossils. Look at this odd one -- I have never seen one like it, and many of the normal experts at my club could not ID it. A number of people thought it was a barracuda tooth, and one guessed at otter. All comments appreciated. EDIT - Updated to add finer details on the photos.
  18. Originally, there were 5, but we ended up with Shellseeker, Peace Fossil, and Meglodon Hunter combining a float trip, with prospecting for gravel in deep water with fast currents, and hoping we could find a few goodies to post. I leave some of the ups and downs stories for PF and MH to relate and look forward to them posting some finds. We stopped in 3 spots, The first was just pure luck probing with a kayak paddle close to shore. We found mostly small >1.25 inches, but very colorful (blues and olive) with sharp serrations. There were a couple of very small makos and megs. The 2nd stop had almost no shark teeth, but PF found a 3-toed molar, which was very pretty and I picked up a collection of mammal teeth, glyptodont, giant armadillo you see below. 3rd spot at the end of the day was pretty well cleaned out. It was windy with high water -- we had wetsuits on which helped. All in all a fine day, but my muscles are sore from shoveling and kayaking DOWNSTREAM.. On the photos, I thought I had horse and camel (p3) molars both in the same sieve. Then I thought 2 camel molars, and finally realized that I could not match one of them to pictures of Camel teeth. So I look for IDs.. I love the Glypto osteoderm, and it seems broken but not sure quiet how because no obvious breaks. It is indented on the bottom. Maybe a tail osteoderm> Finally, a worn and interesting Vert -- most verts I find in the peace are porpoise, but looking for confirmation. Thanks for all replies. SS
