    Peace River Unknown

    I posted these pics in another string but thought this might get better vis. Pretty well worn, but retains the basic phalanx structure. The apparent "twist" is what is confusing me. This is lighter colored than most river finds, but still appears to have a high degree of mineralization. Not a hyperostotic bone and clearly is not bilaterally symmetric. Appreciate the time.
  2. My schedule and the river level finally agreed so I could get out Weds. Beautiful day with a low of 63 and a high of 83, mostly sunny....hard to beat. Had a better day than I had expected with the water level still fairly high but very doable. Got a good selection of fossils with 2 really pretty tapir molars and an incisor, 2 pretty good size snaggletooth teeth and other typical stuff. Also got this that I'm unsure of. It's pretty worn but see if these 2 views help anyone identify it. Thanks everyone.

    Peace River Sites Now?

    I know the Peace is still slightly high for the best fossiling and clarity, but we still may give it a go tomorrow as we have the day off. Any input on the best spots to go when the river is still a bit high? We will likely take kayaks. We usually go to Wauchula, Gardner River Rd, Thousand Trails....head up to Charlie via kayak....any thoughts welcome!!!!! And, if you think we'd be wasting our time and the river is too high to sift in general let us know that, too! Seems it could be on the cusp!
  4. Attached are photos of a find from the Peace that I've taken to the Univ. of Fl twice. The 2nd time I got an identification that I would characterize as uncertain. It appears to be the last vert. from a mammal without a tail, or the last 3 vert., which appear to be fused, of a mammal with a very fine tail as related to the spine width. It was identified as belonging to a mammoth at the University, which I assume is possible, I just didn't get a warm and fuzzy at the time. Hope the pictures are OK. Appreciate the time.
  5. It may not be accurate to call this a fossil hunting trip since I neither found nor hunted fossils. It had been a busy 3-4 weeks since my last Peace River trip on July 11th. On July 12th, I headed north to Cape Cod (bluefish and stripped bass were running) and Vermont (went diving off the rocks in the Dorset Marble Quarry and sledding down Bromley Ski trails). Had some good times, but still I am addicted to the Peace River and withdrawal symptoms are setting in -- It is really pitiful. I get irritable easily, shake a little and, worst of all, spend time working in the yard. Even while looki

    2 Inch Mammal Tooth Fragment

    Mastodon has been guessed by fossil friends but I am not that comfortable with growth rings and pattern on the broken edges. I can think of 2 other possibilities, but will leave the identifying to others. Thanks for the Help SS

    First Time Poster

    Hey guys my name is Jamie and I'm from the Clearwater area. I've been fascinated with finding sharks teeth for the last 4 years ever since I went to casperson beach in Venice and found my first small meg, and meg fragments. I then ventured out to the peace river in search of a big meg since I hear of people finding them all the time. I've visited the river 3 times now and still no luck. Any suggestions where to look would be nice! I went to the river today and these were my finds. Anyone know what type of animal this tooth is from?

    Florida Fossils-Peace River?

    We are taking a trip to Florida in a few weeks. I know that the Peace River has fossils. We will be in Naples. Do you know where a good place to look for fossils may be where we don't require a canoe? Are there any other rivers near by that contains fossils? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
  11. Hi - first post! A friend and I are taking our three kids (ages 6-8) to the Peace River this weekend. Our plan is to screen for fossils all afternoon Saturday, camp in tents at Brownville Park Saturday night, and maybe do a little more screening on Sunday if everyone is up for it. I hope the water won't be too cold for the kids to last for at least a few hours. A year ago my son and I camped at Pioneer Park and did well with small shark teeth and many other fossils in the Wauchula, Zolfo, and Gardner areas. I've never stayed at Brownville, but based on my reading it might be more fun than s
  12. 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.
  13. 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 -- par
  14. 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 / f

    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.

    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?:

  19. 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.

    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!!
  21. 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.

    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 m
  23. 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..
  24. 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 segme
