    Peace River Mystery Molar

    Hey so I got a grab bag of Peace River teeth and this was by far the biggest. I thought bison at first but it seems too big and bulky, but I'm open to being wrong. Pics below.
  2. Went with my wife to a pay site today - our second time here, but I convinced her to let me stay all day instead of just half the day this time! Overall it was a very lucrative hunt, and I’ve walked away with my new fav finds! Also had the pleasure of meeting @Nimravis who told me to post here, as well as taught me about a bunch of the fossils I found. Anyway, the finds: Starting with my fav, a mostly intact whale vertebrae: My new favorite Meg tooth - which happens to have lightning in the root: A baby posterior Meg tooth:

    IDs needed - Peace River, Florida

    So being a new member here, I’ve had a few teeth and other fossils I’m not sure what they’re from - so I figured it was time to post and ask for ID’s! They’re all from the peace River. First up is this, not sure if it’s an antler piece, a gator tooth, or something else: Next are these fish teeth - I know they’re fish teeth but not sure what from: Other fish teeth: These… they might be rocks honestly but I’m not sure: This is another tooth, my initial thought is Hemipristis but I’

    Peace River ID help

    Have some Peace River finds that I could use some help identifying. The first I believe to be a camel but it has one fossa that appears slightly like bos and the other a camel/ llama . Also the size is quite a bit larger than other camel teeth I have collected. The second and third finds have me stumped despite going through my reference books.
  6. Another year gone by and time to do this year's Florida Trip report. As the title says, I am going to mix and match fossils with nature, art, and the great comradery experienced during my trip. To start with, lets provide a visual for those who have never been to Florida. They say the roads are paved with fossils. This is partially true in that fossils often form the base for which pavement is then applied. Here is an example of a bike trail in development. Thankfully I was able to extract a few nice finds before asphalt was applied. As someone recently said in a post, easy pickins!!

    Fossilized shells???

    I found these shells in Peace River, FL... The first one looks like a oyster but the shell has changed..... The second one looks like a fossilized shell..... Any idea what they are??? Thank u for ur time...

    Tooth or Claw?

    Found this small interesting specimen on the Peace River, FL almost two weeks ago. I gave been working on an ID since and have jumped between a tooth and claw and back again. My first thought was a mammal canine or incisor. I couldn't find a match and then started thinking cetacean. The curve to the tooth and the "chisel"shape of the tip didn't support this idea. Then I started to think maybe it's a claw. This possibility seemed supported by the crenulated area that circles the specimen near the thicker end. Either way I am stuck at this point and hope for some help in furthering my I effo

    Artiodactyla Confirmation?

    I am hoping for confirmation from one of our Peace River, FL experts on a bone I picked up last week. I am always looking for new land mammal finds (at least new to me) and I think I have one here. After several hours on line and looking through Kocisis' Vertebrate Fossils guide I believe I have nailed this down as a seismoid, lateral malleolar of Hemiauchenia macrocephala. The protruding "point" is quite distinctive. The specimen measures 35mm Long x 17 mm Wide x 28 mm tall. Input from anyone who believes they can confirm the ID would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hip or bone fossil???

    Found this bone in Peace River, FL.... Looks like a hip or leg fossil.... Any ideas??? Thank u for ur time...

    Is this some kind of tusk?

    It’s lighter in weight than I would expect for a tooth of that size. Found in the Peace River in Wauchula, Florida. Thanks.
  12. This small molar, which I'm assuming is to a smaller horse ancestor, measures 13mm by 23mm. I'm hoping Harry @Harry Pristis or Jack @Shellseeker can give me some additional info on it. The chewing surface looks like it's been polished down somewhat by the river.

    Bovid ID help

    I was out on the Peace River, FL yesterday and found several interesting fossils. By taking advantage of many of @Harry Pristis excellent photo arrays I identified teeth found yesterday as domestic pig and a horse incisor. Unfortunately, even with Harry's example of cow vs bison and looking at several other sources I am still unable to decide if my find is bison. So I am hoping for some input from all of you to help with a definitive ID. The crown/bite surface of the tooth measures 32mm x 28mm. In the first photo I have placed yesterday's find on the left and wh

    An Easter Fossil Hunt

    I usually do not hunt Sundays and never on a Sunday Holiday. However, I usually hunt with Steve and Dave on the Peace River, Dave was returning North soon, so Steve called last night and twisted my arm to go hunting today to a location where we had found lots of larger Tiger and Hemipristis shark teeth 3 or 4 years ago. You can never go home again, but sometimes lightening strikes. None of us found large Tigers and Hemis, The location had been heavily dug since we were there last. For 3 hours the three of us were finding only 6-7 small shark teeth per sieve, which is not particularly pro

    Very small Carpal/Tarsal

    Back in February, I found some Carpal bones which turned out to be lunars from Florida camel/llama. There were about 32 mm in length. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/121276-tarsal-carpal/&tab=comments#comment-1329883 Now I have a newly found another carpal. It is 25% shorter and not as massive. Note the 3 articulation points. I believe these are only present in Scaphoid and Scapholunar (merge of Scaphoid & Lunar) bones. I would be more comfortable with confirmation of the tpe of carpal. I sent a note to Richard Hulbert at University of Florida. His respon
  20. In everyone who has been or frequents the Peace river in your opinion is it worth the trip? I’ve been many times and it seems like many of the good spots are all but tapped. I know there are always new fossils eroding out of the banks but still is it worth it for sifting?

    Help with ID requested

    Found the fossil pictured below in the Peace River, FL yesterday. My first thought on pulling it out of the sifter was osteoderm. The squareness of the object and bone appearance led me to this idea. The thickness and overall size is similar to the rosette shaped ones I have found. Problem is I haven't found any examples of a similar shaped glyptodont osteoderm. The specimen is too thick to fall into the giant armadillo range. Could it be a partial glyptodont or is it just something else. Maybe turtle? Any input/ideas are appreciated. Specimen in inches - 2 1/8" x 2" x 7/8"

    And yet another Peace River question.

    This is my final ID question. I promise. Until the next one. I'm thinking an alligator tooth with a very worn crown. Tom

    Another Peace River question.

    Hello again. Found in the Peace River. My uneducated guesses......armadillo claw, extremely well worn large shark tooth. Notice that it bends in two planes. Does this rule out the claw ID? As always, thank you in advance for any help. Tom

    Peace River Thingie

    A good friend of mine just gave me a bunch of stuff, mostly sharks teeth, from the Peace River. I came across this. What is it? A micro vertebrae? Any help waould be appreciated. Thanks. Tom
  25. Hi everyone! My family and I are staying in Boca for a week and half in a month and while I'm in Florida I was hoping to hunt the Peace River. It will be my first time at that site and I was hoping to see if anyone has any tips about hunting there and avoiding hazards environmental and large/scaly. P.S. Yes I am aware it is a three hour drive, I live in Houston, that's near the minimum I have to drive to find anything. I am fine with that.
