    Shark tooth 2"

    Hi to you , was wondering after I have done some research , I don't think this is megalodon ..flat cutting surfaces , no serrations at all . It's 50mm (2") found in peace river , Florida Thanks for any help!

    Dolphin/whale - other?

    Posted some shots of these finds over a week ago. Some folks asked for better pictures and I finally have them. My first idea was dolphin on the first one, but the glossy surface had me doubting that ID. On the second, it is quite worn and I was guessing it could be a whale tooth. So, the question is, are they dolphin, whale, neither? Any input would be appreciated.

    Tiny Teeth need ID

    Back on the Peace River yesterday where there was no other human being in sight. Found a number of the usual shark teeth, couple of horse teeth, partial deer antler, deer astragulus, mammoth and mastodon frags, turtle scutes, along with two tiny teeth that I have yet to identify. Searched on the forum and on line for anything similar but had no luck. Hopefully, someone will recognize these. First up is what appears to be the crown of a tooth a little less than 1/2" square. The bite surface is made up of several "bumps" and the underside of the crown looks to me like it is a button wit
  4. My mom is in town escaping the colder weather in Chicago and visiting the Boca house probably for the last time (we're moving to Gainesville, FL in a few months). We'd been talking about taking her out fossil hunting on the Peace River for some time but the last couple of years have been relatively short fossil hunting seasons with the water level on the Peace remaining too high for most of the normal "dry season". This year her visit corresponded well with perfect conditions for an outing on the Peace. The last time we were out was during the week between Christmas and New Year w

    Bite marked bone?

    I was wondering if this was a bite mark and if not, what is it? Pen for size reference.

    Peace river bones

    With the river low I decided to go to the peace river up in wauchula and try my luck, did alright and had fun but I have a few I can’t identify, help is appreciated ankle bone of some kind, not sure what animal digit? Appears to be a toe bone but again not sure odd shaped bone, cut pretty cleanly on some edges but appears to be fossilized

    Horse tooth?

    Hi there- I found this in the Peace River yesterday and was wondering if had finally found a horse tooth. I’ve got a copy of Fossiling in Florida and Florida’s Fossils (revised) and it does seem to be it. Your input would be very much appreciated and the final word. Jen

    Peace River fossil hunt

    We went fossil hunting on the Peace River and found 200+ shark teeth. Thankfully, we didn’t see any alligators or snakes!
  9. Three finds from yesterday that I am hoping to get a bit of help on. The first is what I think is a bison metacarpel. Or is it Bos? Next up is what I believe to be a whale tooth: Last is what I first thought of as whale or dolphin, but it seems to have an extreme glossy and smooth finish. I then looked at a feline canine and thought this could also be a possible.
  10. I was hunting in a predominately marine fossil location, finding only small shark teeth. After a couple of hours, I suddenly found larger bones, (ribs, jaw??) and then a piece of coral, and then this non-rock... 9 by 12 inches !!! and either Atlas or Axis Vertebrae!!!! I had a feeling that it was whale !!! (thinking teeth) but not sure.. Any day with a great whale fossil is a great trip!!! I scrambled to dig 4-5 more sieves, but just found more small shark teeth... RATS !!!! On the way home, I managed to search images of Whale Atlas and Axis verts, and determined that th

    A piece of coral

    I was out to a marine location today, and besides some nicely colored little shark teeth, there were 2 items that are trip makers. One is a small piece of coral, 2+ inches wide. I would love an Identification, but I have other simpler questions. This piece of coral looks "complete". Is it? What happened to whatever it was attached to? Because there are polyp remains in the "holes", does that mean the holes were original? There are about 200-300 polyps on top of the coral.. Did this coral "die" at that point or could it have gr
  12. Has anyone had any problems or relative success for that matter, accessing Charlie's Creek from the Peace north of Gardner? I'm not really looking for specific spots or honey holes. I'm just curious about how far people have gone up from that confluence and whether or not there were issues with landowners. Thanks.

    Florida Peace River Fossil unknowns

    Howdy all! Here are a few things I found on the Peace River in Florida that I am not sure what they are. Any help would be appreciated! 1. This may or may not be anything: But is so oddly symetrically shaped that I think it must be SOMETHING: 2. A knee cap of something? 3. I thought it was bone, but the striations are odd and there are rings on the end: 4. Is this an Alligator tooth? 5. I have no idea what the heck this is:
  14. Finally got photos of the fossils I found in Florida! I was invited back to Florida with a friend - a working trip to get her family house ready for sale. She was kind enough to let us take a little time to do some fossil hunting! Since I had done Caspersen and Venice Beach last time (finding the requisite shark teeth and ray teeth and some other fun stuff) I wanted to "dig a little deeper". I contacted a fossil guide and he just happened to have a group going out the day after we got there. So we drove an hour or so up to the little town of Wachula and met up with Fred Mazza. his canoes and

    Meg Symphyseal tooth?

    Went to the Peace River yesterday to beat the cold front and rain for a very pleasant 85 degree day of digging with friends. My streak of poor performance continues but I found one item I thought might be of interest. First, the take for the day: Now in December of 2016 I found a small meg tooth that @MarcoSr identified as a meg symphyseal tooth, which Tony @ynot picked up at auction. This little tooth looks quite similar to me, but has a somewhat shorter blade. Is it another symphyseal tooth, or just an ordinary posterior? I may need to get a better picture of it.

    A few more Peace River Unknowns

    I missed these few fossils when trying to ID some unknowns from the Peace River a few days ago. 1. This one really intrigues me. Hopefully not just coral . 2. Very pitted. 3. I am a little unsure of these teeth. They just had a different appearance from the other teeth I could ID with confidence. I will repost a few from an earlier try for identification. 4. Bone of some kind 5. Broken tooth? Of what? A ridge down the length of the tooth visible in the first picture. Break visible in the second pic.

    Peace River Femur

    I had the privilege of a day on the water with JCBShark and Shellseeker. When I found this bone, they both thought modern. It sounds fossil like when I hit it against something hard but the flame test showed that at best it is old, in that a slight but definite smell permeated the air when put against a flame. Whether a "young" fossil or modern, I still want to try and ID this. The prominent ball just stands out to me as being different. The lesser trochanter is fractured off.

    Here are some others I found the same day.

    Peace River Unknowns

    Having returned from a lovely vacation to Florida, I have examined some fossils that were brought back with me. There are always unknowns in my collection , but year by year I require less and less assistance in IDing finds!!! This year, I am down to these five: 1. A large bone with odd joint surfaces. Not sure of the owner and not sure what bone I am looking at! 2. A tooth that was fractured. Gator? The reason for thinking of the ridge running down the tooth in the first picture. The 2nd pic is of the fractured surface. 3. Odd looking bone

    Wood or maybe bone?

    This was found in the Peace River in Central Florida.

    Bone or suggestive shape?

    Picked this up Wednesday on my last visit to the Peace River. I was prospecting on some new sites and having modest success with small shark teeth and turtle shell pieces when I pulled up my first complete dolphin/porpoise periotic. In the next sifting screen I found the below specimen. I thought it could be a partial axis vert of some type but am not sure it is anything more than a suggestively shaped rock. Any input on what it may be would be appreciated.

    Jigsaw Tusk

    I have been lucky to find pieces of an ivory tusk (mammoth or mastodon) in the Peace River approx. 2 weeks ago. I have taken some photos to show what it looked like when found, two after consolidating showing how some large pieces fit together and then photos of the many loose pieces. I will have a nice jigsaw puzzle to work on once I consolidate the remaining pieces. I am hoping for suggestions on what glue or adhesive to use to try and rebuild the tusk. I have researched options that included super glue, gorilla glue and other adhesives. Which is best and easiest to work with? Ph

    Peace River on Nations Weather Service site

    I thought this might be of interest to those in our area of Central Florida for checking the Peace River, we had storms last night in our area of central Fl so I was interested and wanted to share NSW RIVER CHART Arcadia Bartow Zolfo Springs Also to learn more about the Peace River for new people Peace River State Park

    Mio-Pliocene Whale Ear Bones from Florida

    Here are two small whale petrosals that I can't identify -- can I get some help? I am not certain, but I think they are different species. What do you think? @Boesse@Shellseeker

    ID Help Jaw fragment

    Found the below specimen in the Peace River recently. I have spent several hours looking at images of small fossil jaws, fossil fish jaws, etc. I haven't found anything that I could see as a match. I am now hoping someone may recognize this. The holes appear to have an interior channel running in between inside of the specimen. Lighting was a problem as I was taking the photos and these are the best I could do for now. Hope they are sufficient. Any input is appreciated, thanks.
