  1. Hi. I wanted help identifying a fossil tooth found in Florida. My son and I found it on the Peace River North of Wachula. We were sifting gravel from the middle of the river last week. I thought it to be alligator, but someone noted the ridge was distinctive enough that they didn't believe the tooth to be as such. It is slightly larger than an inch long. I can provide other pictures. Thank you Ken
  2. Hi. I wanted help identifying a large bone fossil found in Florida. I believe it to be a rib bone; and one person indicated either Whale, Mastodon, or Mammoth. My son and I found it on the Peace River by the edge of the water in between about Brownville and Arcadia (closer to Arcadia). One photo shows an additional section; and with that section is about 19". It is broken on each end so would be much bigger. Color is closer to the image with the shark teeth; the other photos were taken during sunset so appear redder in color than it should be. I can provide other pictures. Please advise if you have insight on how to narrow what this is. Thank you Ken
  3. Finally managed to get out for a few hours when I visited Florida earlier this month. Walked in to a Peace river tributary where I got to spend a few hours shifting gravel while keeping an eye on the local wildlife. Was interesting how different the finds were when compared to the previous site which was about 25 miles further north. Nothing overly special, but was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Found a lot of bone fragments this trip, but no dugong which surprised me after my first experience. There were also fewer shark teeth this time around. Not sure what the big bone chunk in the upper left is from as there is very little of the surface left, but the fragment is 4 x 5 x 2.5 inches
  4. Megalodon tooth to find

    Hello everybody, my name is Alex and I come from Germany. My English is bad, I translated this text with Google, so please don't laugh about it :-) I have tried several times in my vacation to find shark teeth especially Megalodon tooth, unfortunately until now without success :-( In this vacation I would like to finally make it . I have already prepared a little, watched many videos, learned many tips and tricks, but unfortunately I lack a few crucial prerequisites. I don't know Florida, which means I don't know where to look. I know the beaches like Caspersen Beach and I will search them thoroughly again. Much more I'm interested in a search in a creek, tributary of Peace River. Who could give me some info on that? Where to search legally in Peace River? (does not wish to violate the law) Are there any dangerous animals there? Crocodiles? (I'm afraid to be eaten) Have I seen a contribution that many fossils are found on construction sites or unpaved roads, does anyone know such a place? If you would like to give me more tips and information, I would be very grateful. Greetings from Germany
  5. Peace River Unknown

    Last week I went to a little spot in the Peace that I can dig at high water levels. Found very few things, but wondered if anyone has an idea of what the little bone in the lower left corner of the picture is.
  6. The kids are on spring break next week, and we'll be spending some time in the Tampa area with family. My son (8) and I will probably try to take a day to go to the Peace River. If anyone is interested in joining us, let me know. I've collected ther several times, but it's probably been over a year, and I'm not an expert by any means. I'm not sure exactly which day we'll be able to get away. It will probably be Monday or Thursday. I have a kayak.
  7. Good Florida hunt

    So today I was going to try to get in the Peace for a bit. I know where some gravel beds are that you can get in when the water isn't quite as low as you want. I messed around for about an hour but then it just wasnt paying off. One good hemi and everything else was just jar teeth. So I packed up and headed to my old stand by spot. Did pretty good but also put in a lot of hours. *In the pic the top is a section of mammoth tooth it is hard to tell looking at the pic now.
  8. Hello I am setting a 4 day trip to Florida with my son to find Shark Teeth and bone mid March. He is a teenager and experienced; we did a Summer trip to Summerville, SC. We hear rains have Florida rivers and streams fairly high right now? We have never hunted for fossils in Florida; but are looking to areas along the Peace River and researched Arcadia may be a good central location? We are thinking of doing: * Day 1 - Excursion with a guide (allows us to familiarize us with the area; dos and don'ts) * Day 2 - Hit Peace River (I have some general ideas of locations, but could use help) * Day 3 - Try some adjacent Rivers (I have some general ideas of locations, but could use help) * Day 4 - Either repeat above if we have success, or try Casperson beach in Venice Any insights/guidance would be fantastic. Thank you! Ken
  9. I'm interested in collecting in the Peace River and my kids are finally old enough. I've been lurking around the forums for a little bit and I've seen a few do's and don'ts, are there rules somewhere? For instance I have read you can't use a 2 handed shovel but seen numerous pictures with normal spade shovels in them. Digging/ looking for fossils in the bank? Collecting on state land(I thought the river bed up to the high water was OK) I'm looking for a little guidance, I don't want to run into any trouble or afoul of any laws. Any tips for a newbie are also appreciated.
  10. I found this in the peace river a while back and I’m not sure if it’s turtle shell of something interesting. The level change kind of throws me off. Measured roughly 1 inch by 1/2 inch
  11. Believe I'd heard somewhere it's illegal to hunt north of bowling green, or at least there's less fossils? Also heard someone had hunted near Bartow many years back.. so many questions marks here but I know hunting in the state park boundaries is not legal
  12. Peace river mammal tooth

    I found this in the peace river a while back, it’s worn and a bit beat but worth a shot I guess. I think it’s a mammal tooth of some kind
  13. Micro Shark tooth ID

    I have not been hunting the Peace River since October. On Saturday, I was sorting some ziploc bags of finds back in October and found this tiny tooth that I did not know I had. What I do know is that this one looks different from my normal small shark tooth finds. I am amazed that it did not slip between my quarter inch screen.
  14. Confirmation on cowshark teeth

    I was revisiting some of the shark teeth I've found on previous adventures in order to make a list/catalog of the vertebrate species present in my collection. I found a few teeth which I believe could come from notorhynchus or hexanchus and I wanted to confirm that with members on the forum. I was looking at some of my teeth from the spoil pits of Aurora, NC and the Peace River, FL. 1. Deep rooted specimen with what looks like what would be the first crown preserved. Found in Aurora. About 2 cm from top to bottom, 1 cm wide. 2. Unsure about this one, initially thought it was a tiger shark, but it's rather long at the base and doesn't have the curved root like your average tiger. Found on the Peace River. About 1.4 cm wide and .75 cm from top to bottom. 3. This is the one I'm least confident about, but the root is very wide. 1.4 cm wide and .8 cm from top to bottom.
  15. unknown teeth from peace river FL

    Need help with these pleasepretty worn.....let me know your ideas. Won't inadvertently direct the discussion with what I think.......thanks!
  16. Venice Beach Trip Set

    The plane tickets are purchased and the sifter and 'Florida Snow Shovel' have already arrived in Cape Coral! My in-laws have a place in Cape Coral and the wife and I visit them every year in early March. Last year we went to Venice Beach and I totally got hooked on fossils and sharks teeth. Living in the Pennsylvania, I don't get down to Florida often, but I have been able to make it to Calvert Cliffs twice this winter. While I did find some very small teeth the last time (my first time) at Venice Beach, just south of the pier I am hoping to find some better spots. I am not looking for anyone to reveal any personal sites or honey holes, but I hope some forum member can chime in and and let me know some decent places to look. I know we will for sure be making a family trip to Venice Beach for a day, but I also hope to be able to steal a day on my own for fossil exploration. Any information or tips would be much appreciated. I will get a permit prior to the trip, and the in-laws gracefully took down a sifter and scoop for me when they left a few weeks ago. There is nothing like examining your finds while sipping some Wicked Dolphin Rum and sitting on the canal!
  17. Hello! I'm brand new as a member of the forum but have been looking on here for awhile. I caught the fossil bug while on a vacation to Texas in June. I just got back from a Peace River trip and wondered if anyone could help me identify what I got. I believe I have scutes... but don't know what variety - Armadillo? Alligator? Turtle? The first two photos are of the same specimens but both sides. The third pic I think might be alligator. The last two pics are of two teeth, different angles - I think I have llama, but don't know the other? I'm so excited about starting fossiling! My next trip to Florida will include diving for megs (which was cancelled on this last trip, leading to the Peace river search...) I want to do Peace river again, but this time branch out to an area that doesn't rent canoes for that specific leg of the river (so not as picked over maybe). If anyone has advice, it's very welcome. Thank you to any one who can help!
  18. Peace River Rapids

    Hello - first post here. I've been lurking in the background reading lots and lots of your posts in the forum. Very informative, really enjoy looking at the pics of the fossils being found on the Peace river. I noticed in some of the pictures what appears to be rapids on the river - appears to be shallow water moving over rocks. Where on the river would these rapids be located? On the satellite images it looks like there may be some rapids 5.24 miles (following the river) or 4.2 as the crow flies - north of the Gardner ramp near Oak Creek. Has anyone made it that far north from Gardner and checked out the area for fossils? I'm trying to plan a trip and was thinking of using a canoe with a small outboard to travel from Gardner to Oak Creek. Is it possible to motor on the Peace river north of Gardner - or are there too many obstacles or shallow water? Thanks in advance for any information you can share - hope to see you on the river soon! G
  19. There is a spot in the Peace, not far upstream of the Canoe Outpost, that yields relatively large quantities of the sand dollar shown in the photo below. I have these 2 relatively good examples and 3 more partials stuck together in a block. All are of nearly identical size. I had assumed Miocene based on the source, but the the publication from UF on "Pliocene and Pleistocene Echinoids" has the only sand dollars coming close. The closest matching in shape is Encope michelini, but the sample is twice the size of my examples. Anyone have experience with these?
  20. Between work and home life 2018 wasn't much of a year to get out hunting for me. Outside of two short trips down to the Ramanessin I didn't really get out this year. Hoping to change that in 2019. To start I am working on a family vacation to Florida around March. The last time I was down there at that time of year I was able to do a day of creek hunting around Wauchula that netted a ton of small shark teeth including multiple mini megs as well as a slew of ice age mammal items. My favorite was a small glyptodon scute which was one of my personal bucket list items . I am looking for suggestions on areas I can start researching that would be in range of a day trip based out of the Orlando area. Call it a 2 hour radius of Orlando so I have time to hunt. Not looking for anyone's special hunting grounds, just general suggestions. Haven't looked to see who might still be offering guided trips these days as its been a few years since my last visit, but I am willing to entertain that option. I still have the books I gathered for my last trip so I will start with a refresher from those, but any advice would be appreciated
  21. Found a bunch of Shark teeth today and other interesting bits. If possible, can anyone ID this spike? Catfish spike? Is the hole natural? And found a tiny vertabrae, can anyone tell what animal that may have been from? And I found what to me looks like an alligator tooth, but wrapped in a concretion or something? Or is that just a rock? Thanks for any help!
  22. Snake Vertebra?

    Hey everyone, I'd like to know what you think about this vertebra I found on the peace river last February. I know people find snake verts once in a while on the river and was wondering if this specimen had any traits that would determine its identity whether it be more general or specific. I know that not everyone knows the size reference when using American currency, the vert is 1.5 cm from the top of the process to the bottom and about .8 cm long at its longest point.
  23. Canine imitators

    A friend showed me these today, bith found in the Peace River in the last week. He asked if I thought either was a canine? I decided to ask TFF for identifications. Fossil #1 Fossil #2 Thanks for all comments, suggestions, identifications.
  24. Coprolites From Florida

    I was browsing the Forum and came across an excellent (Jan 25, 2018) post by @GeschWhat listing some characteristics of coprolites. Unhappily, Lori did not provide illustrations. I want to quote her list later. I have here a few coprolites from different rivers, including the Peace River. I'll post some images, and let you judge how well these specimens fit Lori's list of characteristics. This one (two images) is from the Peace River: This one (two images) is from the Suwannee River, a bear-dog site: This one (two images) is from the Peace River: This one (two images) is from the Peace River: Report post I don't subscribe to the 'lick test,' and Lori has heard all of the scatological jokes by now, so let's get down to serious 'business.' Feel free to provide further illustration or commentary on the identification of coprolites.
  25. I was wondering if anyone would be interested in trading trips to fossil collecting sites. I want to go hunt fossils in the Peace River next Feburary, in return I can provide a collecting trip to Sharktooth hill (or a bunch of STH fossils). Anyone interested?
