    What A Perfect Day In South Florida

    What a great day. We thought it would be too cold to get in the water. The Dopey Digger team are a bunch of pansy Floridians. The thought of outside weather below 70 degrees usually scares us all away. There was frost everywhere this morning. I was ready to curl over and go back to sleep.The lure of teeth waiting to be found could not be ignored. Got some great stuff to add to our collection. I surprised all of us by being one of the first ones in. As soon as Shrek saw I was in....that was all she wrote. No way Fiona was going to out do him. Puss in Boots was right there behind grabbing t

    I Can't Begin To Guess

    Found this around the Peace River area in Charlotte County, Florida. Most of our finds are easily identified. This, however, truly stumps me. Going to try to show several pictures from different angles, but I'm new to this site.

    Peace River Finds- What Are These?

    These were found in the peace river last year. I split them into 2 groups. The right are clearly fossils and one is a small turtle shell I presume. The largest piece is the brown piece on the left which is about one inch. I included a few images of each including the side view on a few on the left. What is interesting is that the inside of the left grouping is black. It looks like a rock I guess? For the fossils, can these be identified. I know that many are fragments but your expert opinions would be appreciated for both groupings. Thanks
  4. Hey Ya'll, I've been to the Peace River again and found a few more things I can't identify. Sure would appreciate a bit of help here. #1
  5. Here are some pieces I found at the Peace River this past weekend that I need help ID'ing. #1 An incisor just over 2 inches. #2 A funky little tooth. (porpoise?) #3 I have absolutely no idea. It's pretty small. Around half an inch. Surprised my old eyes even saw it. #4 A broken bone end. I'm hoping it's an identifiable end.

    Dire Wolf? Bear?

    I just found this tooth in Florida's Peace River. It looks like a canine. Shell Seeker suggested either bear or dire wolf, and as always, he suggested I turn to the experts on the Fossil Forum for help. I appreciate all input.

    Cool Little Gastropod

    I don't want to be a posting hog, so I hesitate before starting new topics, but I thought this little guy was pretty cool. In the Peace, the foundational Limestone erodes into the river and in some areas constitutes a large portion of the gravel we sift. I don't generally concern myself with invertebrate fossils any more, so I only keep the occasional well preserved items I come across, and good preservation is fairly rare. This guy came up in my shovel yesterday (Dec. 13th). I had hoped to just clean it up a bit and leave it in the matrix, but it wasn't well consolidated and came loose

    Time To Drool!

    I went to the Peace River today. It is HIGH but doable if you are OK with taking risks. I did much as I expected. Found a few items, armadillo osteoderm, large puffer fish mouth plate, a medium Mako and some nice smaller Hemis. Good haul for early in the year. However, a stroke of luck. A year back I made friends with someone who hunted the Peace in the 60s and 70s, and still had about 1/4 of her collection. Items like a complete Mammoth tusk, complete mammoth verts including two that were fused, complete baby Mammoth, Mastodon, and Gomph teeth. Today was the day I was invited to view the c

    Human Tooth From Peace River?

    I just found this tooth in Florida's Peace River. Unfortunately it is damaged but it looks similar to a human tooth. I have attached a photo of the top, showing the wear, and then photos of the sides of the tooth, including the side that is missing as it shows the interior of the tooth. I've also attached a photo of a human tooth for comparison.

    Help With Some Peace River Finds

    Can someone help me in identifying these recent finds in the Peace River. They were found near Brownville Park a bit down stream...

    A Few Peace River Bones

    So, I was going through some of my old bones this weekend and decided I should revisit the forum, since I have been lurking for too long. I was checking how I had labelled some of my fossils and looking at some that I had not IDed yet and I found these four interesting bones. I think I know, in general, what each is, just not specifically what or what from. All were found in the Peace River making them between Miocene and Pleistocene in age. 1. I think this is an osteoderm. The odd curved groove that leads into one "edge" of the piece got me curious and it looks nothing like my armadillo o
  12. Went to the Peace River for the first time since the rains stopped. I found the usual assortment of goodies along with two pieses I've never found before. I think I know what they are, but as it says at the bottom of all my posts, I'm no expert. Any help with confirmation, or proper identification, would be appreciated. #1 I'm thinking Glyptodon. A piece of osteoderm from the tail?

    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.
  14. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  23. 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
  24. 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.
