  1. Peace River Claw Core

    Hey guys! I dug up this claw core in the peace river last week and wanted to get some opinions on a proper ID. Any suggestions are appreciated!
  2. With the waters of the peace river very low, slow and about as clear as it gets I decided to try my luck snorkeling a few deep holes I visited last year north of Arcadia. The gators are out but we were as safe as possible and had zero issues. The depth of our best hole went from 2-3 feet of limestone bottom to a roughly 10' deep hole that was 4ish feet wide and 20+ feet long. We threw rocks in for about 20 minutes hoping to scare out anything that might be hiding and then I cannon balled in. It took a few minutes to check things out (dive light on hand) and one of the first things I saw was chunky gravel with a Meg tip sticking out. I didn't have any scuba tanks with me and had to go back to the surface frequently because of the depth but we recovered a great deal of fossils! We also dug for an hour or two afterwards and did ok but nowhere near as good as when we snorkeled. I dont usually hunt this far south but that's going to change in the future :). Here are the best from the day : Overview of the best: Huge haul of Megs, a few Makos, tigers and snaggleteeth Smallest Megs I've ever found A beautiful 2.5" Meg Horse teeth and a cow tooth Sloth tooth pieces Deer antler with skull piece Pieces from 2 different mastodon teeth Ivory Raptor leg/claw bone
  3. open invite to a member hunt

    A few members are getting together for a Peace river hunt on Saturday April 15th. It will be on the Peace and you will need to provide your own canoe or kayak. I was hoping to get away from the areas hunted by the canoe outpost folks so this is going to be out of the area they service. Any TFF members are welcome to join and folks new to hunting would be able to learn from some of our valued members on here with years of experience hunting this great area. It will be paddling upstream from where we put in and even though the river is very low with little current now it is still a workout paddling against the current and I'm sure we will do our share of dragging craft over the shallow spots so expect a fair bit of physical exertion. If this sounds fun send me a pm and I'll keep you in the loop Jeff
  4. unknown ?

  5. Hey All! Had a lazy day today so finally got some time to post my Peace River canoeing/fossil trip I went on end of Feb. I went 4 days and 3 nights on the Peace River canoeing, camping, and fossil hunting. We dropped in Wauchula and ended in Arcadia. We had a blast and found some good stuff along the way. This is my 4th year going down there and my first trip where I found my biggest and best condition meg! My buddy had never been fossil hunting (except once to Mazon Creek, pit 11 with me) and he found his first small meg on the river. We saw a lot of wildlife, paddled a lot of water, and shoveled a lot of river bottom. Here's my material from the trip. Enjoy! Armadillo band/scutes, glyptodont scute and tail scute (one of my favorites!), whale bulla, tortoise spur, random bone, and tusk material Jaw (recent deer??), alligator teeth, snake vert, sloth teeth pieces, gator osteoderm (a favorite), and small random bones Peccary tusk??, capybara tooth piece, reconstructed deer antler, horse teeth, piece of petrified wood mammoth tooth pieces (I think same tooth), mastodon enamel pieces, shell (id?) turtle neural pieces, soft shell turtle pieces, gar scale, ray teeth/plate pieces, ray barbs turtle turtle turtle! These are my unknowns glass bottle (any ideas w age on this one???), bone piece? skull bone??, very worn vert of what?

    Found this in the peace river suspect larger mammal possible phalanx? Any hints would be appreciated. Thanks Justin
  9. Peace River Round 2

    From top to bottom, left to right, here is what I have so far... Don't worry, this is my last trek to the river for the foreseeable future. Back to work on Monday Mammal tooth fragment (see below pic for top view) ??? Dolphin jaw ??? it's not metal either Deer antler ??? Alligator tooth fragment ??? Puffer fish mouth plate Mammal tooth fragment (see below pic for top view) ??? Maybe a turtle, but I haven't seen this design (see below pic for close up)
  10. Peace River - My first hunt

    Took my first trip to the Peace River today and found plenty of fossil fragments and shark teeth. These are the items that seemed most interesting and most of these are hard for me to identify. I have more pictures of all these if you need to see other angles. I didn't want to overload this post if they're not needed. The top left bone piece looks broken at the large end, but mostly intact on the thiner end. Maybe the side piece of a vertebrate? Also thinking it might be from the pelvis area? I really have no clue. The top right bone piece is definitely the end piece of a arm or leg bone. I'm hoping the middle top piece with the grooves is part of a mammoth tooth. The middle left piece seemed different then all the other bone fragments I found. Maybe a tooth? The bottom middle piece looks like what I imagine a breast bone on a turtler would look like. I'm almost embarrassed to include the "rock" on the bottom left but it feels like fossil. It has two perfect cut holes cut in it, almost like where teeth would be. I want to believe it's a jaw fragment, but fear it's probably a rock... The other "rock" looking piece on middle top right seems shaped to well to be a rock. It's rounded evenly on each side and has an edge to it. Thanks for looking and any feedback. If any of these look interesting to you, I'd be glad to post more pictures of any of any them.
  11. central Florida fragment

    Found in the Peace River basin
  12. Mammal Tooth ID Peace River

    Hi everyone. Would love some help identifying this mammal tooth I found today in creek of Peace River, Florida. The crown is 2cm across and 1.5cm wide. Attached is a composite photo. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  13. I spent most of another day in a spot I've worked the last 4 or 5 times out, but had only moderate results this time. It's getting very hard to dig since the water is still cold, I'm wearing a 5 mil wetsuit and I'm up to my neck in the hole with not bottom showing yet. I wore an 18 pound weight belt for much of the day to keep me on the bottom and give me some leverage with the shovel. It's very tiring, but I really like the spot because the gravel is big and there is tons of bone mixed in......just not much in good shape......yet. Anyway, with guests coming next week for a little trip, I wanted to find a couple alternate spots to try, since the goal of all of our visitors is to find a nice meg. I stopped in a spot that gets lots of pressure and dropped in a hole that looked promising. The megs just started coming hand over fist. Nothing pristine, but 4 that are pretty darn nice with lots of other give away quality teeth. Hope I can do this again of next Friday when guests arrive. We tried an area very close to this one for an episode of "Fossil Hunters" and nobody in the group found anything other than fragments. It's just luck of the draw......and persistence. Here's the take for yesterday.
  14. Hello once again! I've finally tried to identify the shark teeth that Ken (@digit) sent my way from the Peace River in Florida. Please let me know of any errors that I've made (I'm sure I've made many!), and I'd also love some help in identifying some of the more broken specimens that will appear in the final picture. Thanks so much! Monica PS - For labeling purposes, should I label all of these as being from the Pliocene since they are marine fossils from the Peace River, FL? As well, would it be possible to identify these little guys down to genus or even species? Thanks again! Photo #1: Sand tiger? Photo #2: Lemon? Photo #3: Tiger? Photo #4: Snaggletooth? Photo #5: Mako? Photo #6: Megalodon? Photo #7: Stingray teeth? Photo #8: Unknown - please help!
  15. What is it?

    Found in the Peace River in florida. Shallow water, about 1 1/2 ft. deep gravel.
  16. Tusk or Leverite

    This turned up in my screen. It has an unusual look to it so I don't want to toss it until I can get a better idea of what it might be. The inside looks like dentin instead of bone. It's 2" long.
  17. Hi everyone I am new to the forum and just got back Saturday from the Ernst Quarry for Shark Teeth here in California. Headed to Florida on the 15th to hunt fossils. Would love to find a Meg but the adventure is what is fun! Any suggestions where to go between the 15 th and the 20th would be greatly appreciated. Plan on heading to Venice for a day and then the Peace River. Thanks ahead of time. Here is a picture of my finds from Sat. Mike
  18. Crab Claw from Peace River???

    Found something else today in the River I can't ID. It sort of looks like a Crab Chelae from what I've found on the internet. It is hollow, it is a three sided pyramid shape with on side being nearly planar, and it is covered in "pimples". All guidance appreciated! Calvin in North Port, FL
  19. unknown tooth

    Found in Peace River Florida. Any ideas what it could be? sorry about the pictures, I'm not very tech saavy. About 1.75" long with a line on each side. Here's a couple more pics of the same tooth
  20. Non Shark Teeth from Peace River

    I'm relatively new at fossil hunting in the Peace River but I found a few nuggets that I am not able to identify so asking for expert schooling here. I assume the first is a long tooth but broken at both ends. The second (3-4" marks) is much smoother and has a twist to it. The 3rd at 5" is just a conical tip of something. The two at 6 & 7 appear to be vertebra of some type but I don't know what, these were found almost a mile apart. The pieces at 8" and 9" are unknown to me, at first I thought it was a curious formation but now I've seen 4 or more of these so I started saving them. I don't know if they are fish tooth or a "claw" or just funny rocks? The final question is an oddball that seemed to "unusual" to be just a "rock" but other than describing it as "brain like" I don't know what it would be? Fish ballast? Thanks in advance! Calvin in North Port, FL
  21. We are a group of geology majors (with various passions of paleontology) that will be down on the Peace next week for 5 days in the river. Were bringing a kayak and all the screens etc... and are going to rent another canoe once we get there, but were still trying to decide exactly where to head. Its been a couple years since I was there(other two are newbies to Florida fossils) and we are thinking North of Zolfo Springs? Anyone going to be out on the river March 5th through the 9th?
  22. First & foremost I don't think I will ever bad mouth a carefully built pvc sifter ever again. I use to think they were cheap & touristy looking, but having designed and assembling one over the past couple weeks (for a better 1/4" sifter better than my narrow & heavy metal basket sifter) it is something else. Beautiful day on the peace river yesterday (apart from someone burning something upwind from where I was sifting lol), saw about record numbers of canoers & fishers. Overall not too shabby for my back not being 100% & not having a yak yet. If anyone wants to hear about the somewhat lengthy trials & tribulations behind building this sifter ( & the minor modifications to come) just let me know & I can post a topic about it sometime P.s. don't drive down the gardner road to the boat ramp if your vehicle's suspension is very sensitive lol +Thread about my unknown bones:
  23. Few from Peace River 2/25/17

    Just a few finds from today I'm not quite sure about or at all. First one that looks like a vertebrae (1st 3 pics) is 1.75" long. 4th and 5th are the same as are the 6th & 7th. Trip report is upcoming
  24. I've been working a spot in the Peace the last couple of trips, that seems to have allot of potential, but it has been unrealized so far. More unidentified weird stuff than keepers and allot of broken stuff that keeps me going back. Yesterday I brought this home thinking that it looked a little wonky and hoping it was something, but haven't seen anything like it before. Here is yesterday's take. The thing in the upper right corner is one of my unknowns. It is solid and heavy like a dugong rib. The rounded end is worn and shows a darker core and a lighter outer rind. and the broken end shows the same layering. I'm picturing a small tusk like thing or a something similar, but got no clue. Thanks for the time.
  25. broken vert and fragments

    #1 was screened from the ocean at Venice Beach, the others were found in Peace River Not sure #5 can be identified but it looked like it was coated with enamel
