    Peace River, Florida Tooth?

    I found what looks like a tooth in the Peace River near Arcadia, Florida. Any idea what it came from?

    ID Help Please

    Sorry to be posting so many things at once. I do truly appreciate the feedback you all can provide. Last three items from my Wednesday trip to the river follow. I also found numerous shark teeth of various kinds, but no outstanding specimens. Many pieces of turtle shell, ray teeth/mouth plates were also recovered. Here are the last for help with ID. #7 maybe mastodon or mammoth tooth fragment? The unnumbered item I have no idea on. Thanks!

    ID Help Please

    Another found in the area where a lot of Dugong fragments were. The shape and patterns of the core has me wondering what it might be.

    ID Help

    Spent a long day on the Peace River last week and came up with many bone fragments, teeth, etc. There are several items I can't identify and hope the knowledgeable folks here can help. First up, fragment of alligator bone?

    Fl Bone ID

    Found this Sunday, thinking it a "cattle horn" but later realizing it is cortical bone. Now I need some help. I don't see any articular surface since both ends are gone, but the smaller end, as shown, is pretty much solid. Does not strike me as a rib texture or shape, despite the curve, and it's not keratinized tissue. I've never seen a sloth claw in hand, but I am starting to think it is from something very large like that. Strikes me as typical fossil bone, and it was very deep below the river bottom, if you are wondering why it is so light in color. I have numerous elephant toe bones, ri

    ID Help Please

    Another find from last week in an area where I found a lot of Dugong fragments. This one I was at a loss on. Thinner than anything I have found of similar length.
  7. Since the weather is (finally) behaving and the Peace River water level has now stabilized at a depth where South Florida fossil hunters can get in and get their hunt on, Tammy and I found a free day in our busy schedule and planned a day trip to Arcadia to try our luck on the Peace River again. If we do not drive over and spend the night in a local hotel, hunting on the Peace River involves an early morning wake-up call at the painfully early hour of 3:00 AM. We're all packed up and leaving the house at just around 4:00 AM with a long quiet drive through mostly empty highways--up the Florida

    Giant Tortois Osteoderm?

    I found the item on the right a couple years ago and wrote it off at the time as just a unique Giant Tortoise osteoderm. I'm having 2nd thoughts now that I've found another one yesterday when digging at Zolfo Springs. The newest one (on the left) is still wet so it shows what looks like a Fossa or a Facet on the underside more clearly than the one on the right. Both display (or would have displayed) a very definite ridge down the centerline. So, just a different osteoderm, or something different?

    Predator incisor

    I was out hunting today at a location that has larger "small" shark teeth. I really like lower hemis and that keeps me coming back. They can be found but are not "common", even here/ I was looking for them, and almost missed this tooth. That "bump" on the left photo is a cusp. Cusp means predator. The tooth is .95 inches long. Because there is only 1 cusp on the tooth, does that help to identify the position in the jaw of this incisor? I could guess at which predator, but would like confirmation from someone who knows. Thanks Jack

    Peace River fun!

    After a long long wait, the periodic heavy rains that have repeatedly pushed the water level of the Peace River up and out of range for Florida fossil hunters, our "dry season" is finally starting to act like the non-rainy part of our year. Tammy and I got out two weekends ago with a group of SCUBAnauts from the Tampa/St. Pete area. While checking the levels right before that trip, I visited one of my favorite spots along the river to see if it would be accessible for the group. The water two weeks ago was nearly a foot higher than at present but even with the higher level the locality worked
  11. The winter of 2018-2019 was rough on folks from Minnesota, people who normally judge their self esteem on surviving mother nature's cold and snowy fury. So when the time came to depart for my snowbird trip to Florida, I could not have been more excited to go. Here is the local landscape as we left. Then on arrival to the Sunshine State. What a stark contrast. I could never give up my winters for this , as nice as it is to visit. Hunting for fossil treasures in Florida is usually limited to a single day per trip for me. But
  12. Hey everyone, I found this fossil last February on the Peace River, I believe I posted it with a bunch of my other finds from that trip a while ago and the ID came up inconclusive. I was hoping the folks on the forum could help me out with this one again. It's about 3.5 cm in diameter and I first thought it belonged to a glypodont but I'm not so sure.

    Peace River Incisor?

    Found this on my 2018 trip to Florida, I believe it is a rodent incisor and I would like to confirm that. And if it is, does anyone have any indication as to what variety it belongs to? It's about 2 cm long.

    Florida teeth, bone, and vertebrae

    I have had the delight of hunting the Peace river and it's Tributaries for a few years now. Time was taken to combine my finds and I discovered some unknowns that I hope someone can help me with!! Rib. It does not appear to be Dugong. Any chance of a broad classification?? These look like bullas, but so different than whales. I was told horse. Could this be correct?? Unknown Teeth:
  15. Hello Fossil Forum community, This is my first post. My name is Ben and I recently learned about the Peace River. After getting my fossil collecting permit, decided to try my hand at it! I loved collecting trilobites and sea animals in upstate NY, so to know there is a place in FL with abundant, remarkable and unusual fossils, makes me so happy! I live about 45min away from Paynes Creek Historic State Park; here the creek and river join. I collected these fossils just past the border of the park. I would like your help to try to ID them, please! Where Paynes Creek

    Do I have a tusk fragment?

    Found this in the Peace River, Florida. It looks different than any of the countless bone fragments I’ve collected in the past. Looking at photos online I feel like I have a good chance of this being the outer layer of a tusk! Any thoughts?

    Peace River Incisor

    Finally made it out to the Peace River this weekend. Tammy and I spent a day canoeing down the river on Friday checking some of our favorite spots between Brownville Park and Canoe Outpost in Arcadia to see if the river was low enough to guide a group of teen/pre-teen SCUBAnauts for a fossil hunting trip on Saturday. Though the river is still about a foot higher than I'd like it to be, the group got lucky when they planned this trip some six months ago. The river gauge at Arcadia is the lowest it's been this year and still dropping--though rain is expected for Tuesday so that could put a halt

    Small herbivore tooth

    Small black herbavoric tooth/molar found in peace river. About 1/2 inch, need help IDing it.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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 b

    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.

    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
  25. 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
