  1. My trips to the Peace this year so far have been so disappointing, I've resorted to bringing home unidentifiable bone scraps. The following photos show 2 of the latest. The one on the right is similar in density to dugong ribs, so it may merely be a tumbled vert, but the angled faces confused me. The other little bone is wedge shaped and looks to have articulating surfaces on the broader edge. Appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thanks.
  2. Hello everyone! I recently dug up this juvinille mammoth tooth and wanted to know if anyone can tell me how complete it is? I know it's missing the roots but I wanted to know how many plates they usually have? Also- is there a way to tell if it was from a Colombian? Thanks in advance for any insights! Ill do a full trip report soon

    Partial Vert?

    I believe the below specimen is a partial vertebra. But if so, of what? Or is it just too broken to ID? Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

    Tooth Root?? ID Help

    Posted the below a few weeks ago with some other finds hoping to get some assistance with an ID. I think this could be the root of a mastodon or mammoth tooth. I am hoping for input from anyone who has an idea or experience with a similar find. Thanks for taking a look.

    Hunting Rivers or Creeks?

    So I recently got to go to the Peace River fossil hunting (in Brownsville boat ramp) for the first time with some good results (small shark teeth and LOTS of bones), but no bigger pieces. So I started to wonder if going into some nearby creeks would contain more bigger items like Megalodon teeth since they would be less picked? In the river we didn't go very far from the boat ramp, so if we went a lot farther would I be more likely to find some Megs? I guess my over all question is if the nearby creeks contain more unpicked fossils than the peace river. -Metro

    Equus - Seeking confirmation

    Found this bone in the Peace River early last week. I believed it to be a mammal toe bone or something similar. After hunting for comparisons here, on line and from texts I have on hand I believe it to be an Equus medial phalanx. The size in millimeters is approximately 40.1 X 40.3 x 23.5. I would appreciate any input confirming or pointing me in another direction. Thanks for taking a look!

    Vertebra? Any ideas?

    Found this bone on the Peace River, FL today. I was searching a new spot when several pieces of ivory tusk were found and I could feel some large bone material under water but was having trouble bringing it up. When it finally surfaced I first thought - vertebrae - and I am still leaning that way. It is approximately 6 3/4" x 6 3/4" x 5 1/4" and heavy. Question is, if vertebra - from what? I would appreciate any input, opinions, comments. Thanks. Also found there today was a tapir molar, mastodon and mammoth tooth fragments, horse teeth and many shark teeth.

    Peace River this week/Next

    Hello! I know there are a lot of threads on the peace river.l, and I’ve spent about an hour reading through them and just want to ask a few question. Sorry if they may be repetitive. 2 years ago we went to Peace River with the amazing John from this forum. He was so helpful, kind and informative and we greatly appreciate him! We are coming down this week into next and would really love to go to the peace river again. I just had a few questions in case my husband and I venture alone. Is there a good time to best avoid gators? If we were not able to g
  9. Hello! We will be traveling to cocoa beach and driving to Tampa then making a stop in Venice beach starting next Saturday. I have been reading information on searching the peace river and this will be our first time. I want to make sure we do this right, does anyone have any advice or guidance? We do not have any equipment but will go buy some and are willing to. I did look up the river water level and currently it is 12in under, which I read is good for fossil gathering. We have our fossil permits for Florida. I have talked to my club up here in Michigan and oddly enough not too ma

    ID Help Please

    This specimen was found in an area with a lot of Dugong rib bone and other fragments. Initially I tossed on the river bank with the pieces I didn't intend to keep. Taking a second look I thought it could be an ear bone of some type. After a lot of searching on this site I think it most resembles Sirenian ear bone and I am hoping for confirmation or redirection on what it is. Thanks for any help you all can provide.
  11. I have spent many hours on this forum, but this is the first time I am posting because this inner ear bone has me completely stumped. It is the first inner ear bone I have found, and it appears to be the periotic of a small/medium cetacean. I see strong similarities with some dolphins and pygmy sperm whale specimens also pulled from the Peace River in Arcadia, FL, but none that really match up. I am new to identifying anything beyond teeth, but I was excited to find this and would love to have a better idea of what animal it is from.
  12. Hi all! Im new to the forum and I have what seems to be some kind of mammal claw. It's almost exactly 1 inch long and I found it digging a creek near the peace river. Any idea what it is specifically? Also if this isn't the place to ask for ID help I do apologize. I didn't see any specific spot on the site to ask. Thanks guys
  13. So I recently made a post showing some of the teeth I pulled from the Peace River over the holiday break at the end of 2019 ( link below ). I love Megalodon teeth with a passion. Like many other hunters, they are my goal when I go out fossil hunting. I have found though that river teeth are much more fragile and lighter than most land found teeth. I'm not sure if that is due to properties in the water. Maybe over time the rivers wash away some of the minerals in the teeth making them more fragile and worn down. Either way after my 3 day river hunt I was happy with the haul of Meg teeth that I

    A carpal/tarsal from the Peace River

    Hello Fossil Forum, it has been a long time since I've been on here, but I managed to get back down to Florida for a couple weeks and went out to the Peace River twice. It's been almost 10 years since I dug the gravels and I had a blast. I have all sorts of fun stuff to look through, identify, and label. This bone is particularly puzzling to me. It seems pretty distinctive with the large elliptical/rounded articular facet and the planar facet on the opposite side. Without a comparative collection to look through, I haven't been able to pin it to anything. (I have a couple leads, but n
  15. It had been a while since my last good fossil hunting trip so I was very excited to have free time over most of December. I had three free days the week before Christmas and I made use of everyone of them. The first day I went out with the goal of trying new areas that I had not tried before, so I spent most of day one trying new locations and coming up with only one good spot that produced some nice smaller teeth but nothing too amazing shark tooth wise. I did however find my first Tapir tooth but the root structure was missing. The next day out was spent mostly adventuring throu

    Bird bone?

    Found the below tiny bone in the Peace River. It is hollow and apporx. 1" long. Looks like a ball in a lacrosse stick at first glance. From information on the forum and a search for bird bone images I think it is in fact a tiny bird bone. I would appreciate opinions from anyone with experience with this type of bone. Tried to get a photo of the hollow end but it didn't come out well. Thanks!
  17. After the holiday rush that included more rain than expected I thought a great way to end the year and the decade would be to make one last pilgrimage to the Peace River. Upon checking the water levels and discharge flow last night and at 7 am this morning it looked like levels were coming down. Outside temperature was about 60 degrees but I figured with the wetsuit all would be good. So, got to the river about 8:30 am and was surprised to see how high the water level was and how fast it was moving. But after the one hour drive and wanting to get in the year/decade ending trip I put the we

    Help ID'ing Vertabrae

    I found this vert (?) in the Peace River last week and finally got some better pictures to post in hopes of a possible ID. I believe it is Cetacean and don't know if it is possible to id it any further due to the amount of deterioration caused by tumbling around in the river. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
  19. Friends of ours had their daughter come to visit for the holidays. She likes to rockhound and collect crystals and pan for gold back in the Seattle area where she lives and was eager to try the experience of fossil hunting in the Peace River. The weather (and river level) was looking good till a few days back when that huge mass of unstable air over the southeastern US unleashed torrents of rain. In fact, we were kidding Kelly that it was her presence here that brought the Seattle weather. She had a red-eye flight into Fort Lauderdale airport a few days back and on the morning of her arrival,

    Holiday Hunt

    Headed back to the Peace River yesterday after a 17 day absence. Water level and flow were a bit higher than I would have liked due to recent rainfall. I just couldn't stay away any longer! When I started the journey to the river the weather was cool and partly cloudy. Half way there I ran into light rain and fog and began to worry I had made a bad choice to make the trip (rain prediction was 50%). When I got to the river I had to prep the kayak under cover as the rain was coming down heavily. It tapered off as I donned my wetsuit and I set out under cloudy skies. Had almost made it to

    Peace River Tooth

    Is this a tooth? Any help is appreciated.
  22. PODIGGER

    Baffled by this one.

    Found this in the Peace River in the spring and have been trying to find something to compare it to ever since. Haven't been able to find anything like it. It has the appearance of shell or coral. The color is a dull gray and it has the look and feel of metal. Don't know if it is any type of fossil or just a suggestive "something". If anyone has seen anything similar or has any idea what it is your input would be appreciated.

    ID Help Please 2 items

    Two additional finds from the Peace River this week. The first I believe to be a Tilly Bone/Fish Ballast. But looking closer once I got it home, I thought it had the look of enamel. I also noticed striations that appeared to circle the specimen. That said I hope someone here can give me an ID. The second item is what I believe to be a small vertebrate. Any input on this would also be appreciated.

    Seeking ID help

    Found this specimen in an area of the Peace River where I have found partial Mammoth, Mastodon & Gomp teeth. Also have found a small piece of fossil ivory nearby. I think this latest find is a piece of a tusk. Any input from those with more experience would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Help requested with 2 more.

    Sorry to create three separate posts here, I just thought trying to get it all on one would get jumbled and confusing. I feel confident these last two are bone but have not been able to come up with an idea as to what they could be. The first specimen has indents on both ends but is clearly not hollow. Second specimen appears almost ear shaped. Any input/suggestions would be helpful and appreciated.
