  1. A few months ago Ken @digit, had a post looking for Florida turtle specimens for a Flmnh project. A week later I went to the Peace and found this Apalone softshell. I hoping Ken post requests for a carnivore project next. After the Tampa Club fossil show this guy's new home will be at FLMNH. I also have quite a few vertebrae to prep as soon as I find some time.

    What is this??

    I found this on a recent trip to the Peace River here in Florida. I'm trying desperately to identify it. Is this a piece of petrified wood? I haven't read anywhere online that petrified wood has been found anywhere in Florida so I'm kinda stumped.

    Hoof Core?

    Had a pretty good day on the Peace River, FL yesterday. Wanted to get one more hunt in before the temps dropped to the point it was just too cold to stand in the river all day even with a wetsuit. Find included deer teeth, camel/llama premolar, peccary tooth crown, gator teeth and the usual assorted shark teeth. I also came up with what I believe is the hoof core pictured below. After going through numerous photos on line and on the Forum I thought it was too big tube deer and too small to be bison, the shape didn't fit for horse. That left me with camelid as a possibility. I would greatl

    Fossilized tooth. Peace River, Florida

    I found this tooth in the Peace River, Florida. I haven't been able to identify it. Any ideas? Thanks!
  5. I need help identifying this jaw bone with teeth. I only have the one picture but the molars are pretty distinctive and hopefully are enough. This was found in the Peace River, Florida. Thanks for any help!

    ID Help Please

    Picked up the below a few months ago. Initially I thought it may just be a concretion. After a second look I noticed holes on the stem portion that reminded me of a prior find. The old find, rare for Florida, was an extinct baleen whale ear bone (Parioetobalaena). While I don't see this as an exact match I thought it was worthy of posting and seeking additional opinions. I am hoping Dr Boessenecker @Boesse will have time to take a look and comment. The specimen measures - 30mm x 36mm x 23mm Or in inches = 1 3/8" x 1 1/2" x 7/8" The blue ruler in the photos is mm and
  7. Mmmm...mmmm, One of my favorites. Only the 3rd complete one I have ever found and in pristine condition!! I also found some very nice shark teeth but this was the highlight of the trip.

    Going Home again

    Sometimes I am chasing plentiful and unusual fossil in difficult locations as far as I can get from other fossil hunters. Once in a while, I return to those thrilling days of yesterday year, hunting what are now heavily hunted areas of the Peace River between Arcadia and Bowling Green. A little while back I did that... returning to old hunting grounds seeing what changes had occurred. I had a wet suit on, it was cool but sunny. There were few people that day on the location I chose. The gravel was still there, just not containing too many fossils. I was either digging deep through l

    Peace River Canine

    Hey there! I was visiting the Peace River this year for my bday with my husband, and we came across some awesome fossil hunters. We’d never hunted the Peace, and were totally unprepared. Fortunately, the group we stumbled upon were super nice. They had sifters to spare and beers to share. They not only made my birthday, but also gave me this tooth. I can tell it’s a canine, but not sure what it’s from. Any thoughts? Tooth is just shy of 3/4”. Thanks very much!! Lauren

    Bunch of Peace River bones

    Hello, I’ve got a good lot of Peace River fossils from Florida that I bought in bulk and unidentified. A few of the pieces I could figure out on my own, but on most of them I’m clueless. I recognize that most of these may not be totally identifiable, but if you recognize something here your help would be appreciated. Below I will post pictures in separate replies. Feel free to ask for more angles/closer photos of any pieces that you might be able to help me with. Thanks in advance!

    Small peace river tooth

    Found in peace river, New to sharks teeth. Anyone know what this is? My guess is carcharinus.
  15. 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?
  16. I'm putting out an open call for any collectors who have any reasonably complete tortoise or turtle material from the Peace River (or its tributaries) or even possibly Bone Valley material from the quarries in the area. I'm working with Jason Bourque in the fossil prep lab on the campus of UF here in Gainesville (presently working on an 18 Ma gator skull from the Thomas Farm site). Jason is reassembling some turtle specimens that had been collected in Florida that have been languishing in the collection for decades. He's presently reassembling a giant tortoise plastron collected in the 1980s.

    Pleistocene fossil tooth, Florida

    Hi guys I have this tooth from Florida and it’s quite strange, I was wondering if anyone knew what it was? Thanks

    Mammoth Tooth

    Found this partial mammoth tooth in June 2020 in the same Wauchula area of the peace was digging in mostly sand with some fine gravel. It is worn smooth probably from sand erosion over thousands of years or maybe mammoth was very old and had worn down its teeth ? Found it like 2 1/2 to 3 feet deep and even though its only part of a tooth was elated when it showed up in my screen. Looking at this stuff is making me wish the river was low enough to go out now especially with it being so hot would be nice to be waist deep in the river. Im sorry pic isnt very sharp but girl friend isnt here and h
  19. My son will be vacationing in Florida for the next week and a half with his grangmother. Since the Peace River will be off limits for fossil collecting due to seasonal high water flow, I was hoping he could grab a gallon of micro-fossil matrix from along the river. Does anyone know any sites along the Peace River or any other sites I suppose where I could send them to grab a scoop or two? One positive might be submerged areas might give access to spots that normally would be considered bank and technically illegal to scoop. Thank you for any help. Pics are just a few of many small

    Peace River oddity

    I was out today with a friend hunting the Peace River. You might ask how. 90% of the river is way too deep and dangerous to hunt. I have a temperamental back which does not allow me to hunt areas that are less than knee deep. During season, there are many isolated areas like that, and for likely places we dig probe holes to determine if the area contains fossils. We identify areas which might be hunt-able when the river is 4 feet above normal. So a lot of small shark, ray teeth, mostly broken and a few finds that make the trip worthwhile.. On this day, a posterior Meg, a chunk of an

    Peace River and Key West Fossil

    I went to peace river a couple years ago one time. Went to one park - was pretty much over picked with craters everywhere. Found those in one illegal dug banks pit. They're the most easily identified pieces I could find - rest was just bone pieces, ark shell molds, and pieces of shells. Second picture is when I went to key west one time there was calcite pieces spread all over the beach - not too far from the fort. Two pieces of calcite had strong resembles to teeth. Third picture is the best I could find from the pieces of bones that I had found at peace river.

    Peace River wood

    I recently purchased a "Pay Dirt" box from forum member MikeG @Bone Daddy's site for a little something to do. In it was this piece of wood. Originally it was a very dark brown, almost black color (imagine that from Peace River). Anyway, I went over the front of it lightly with a 600 grit sanding cloth & the color lightened up nicely. Filed & polished a bit of the upper end & found that it may not be regular wood. Measures 7 cm long by 2.5 cm at it's widest. First 2 pics are the front & back. Pics 3, 4 & 5 are the polished bit at 60x, 75x & 100x respectively. Not used t

    Turtle Shell? Rock?

    Hi again yall, I have another set of pictures of something I found that I am not at all sure what it is, hope it's at least a fossil this time, haha. My first guess is some kind of shell from a turtle but again, huge newbie who probably has another cool rock to add to her collection. It is very nice to hold in your palm because of the shape and texture. Tried to get clear photos with a pen for size, found it in Arcadia Florida in the Peace River. Thanks as always!
  24. Found in Desoto County FL, in the Peace River. Just started fossiling and I'm high-key worried I may have just found a cool rock and not a fossil, haha. Help would be appreciated. Took the photos next to a pen for size and tried to get as crisp and well lit a photo as I could. Thanks in advance!
  25. I was out Monday unsuccessfully looking for inverts, but came back with a ton of shark teeth and a few of the more common vertebrate finds. would appreciate an ID id anyone would like to take a chance. The overall length is 101 mm. I'm thinking a dog sized animal but have no clue. Thanks for the look see!
