    Large mammal Astragalus

    A couple of months back, I was pushing to hunt the Peace River before the summer rains closed me out. This was every other day leaving no time to sort, photo finds from previous days. Well, the Peace River is FULL of water and I am finding time to return to interesting finds. Here is a photo of finds from early June. On this day, I also found a seal tooth, posted for ID on TFF; Additionally I posted a couple of hours earbones and a small Botryoidal Chalcedony sample from lower left. This is an interesting location.... Note the almost complete Dugong vertebra and the chunk of ray mou

    Big Peace River Bone id help

    Hi guys! I recently acquired this beauty from someone who had absolutely no idea what it was (he knew it was fossil mammal bone from the Pleistocene but that's it). It's from Peace River in Florida. measures about 9 x 4 x 4 inches. My best guess is giant ground sloth tibia, but I don't know for sure and would really appreciate a second opinion before I label it something that awesome. Thanks! Jacob

    3 IDs

    Lovely day, good friend, interesting finds. 1st of three. A small tooth. To me, this has the shape of marine mammal or alligator, more likely first based on enamel. No horizontal banding means not whale, but could be dolphin. However a very odd root core. 2nd up is an enamel cap. In mammal tooth development, the enamel forms first, followed by the root. In the event of death, the root is never added. These are rare. Possibly based on cap ridges, a slight preference for Hemiauchenia macrocephalus or Hemiauchenia gracilis. Comments appreciated.

    Camel/Llama Small Molar

    Summertime presents challenges and rewards. Usually, you are digging in deeper water, even when you can find gravel. For me, this means 4 to 5 feet. Most times, I can not employ my favorite technique: dig down to whatever is underneath the gravel and spread out from the river bottom. I am basically scraping the top 6 inches of gravel. and thus I am depending on new gravel getting washed downstream by the faster currents. My finds tend to be less diverse and limited in numbers compared to winter hunting. So, 5 osteoderms, 4 Mastodon fragments, 3 mammal earbones, 3 gar scales, a bunch

    EQUUS Identifications

    I was out hunting yesterday. One of my frequent finds in the Peace River is horse teeth , usually Equus .sp. I found one yesterday. Typical Equus upper molar. EquusExample#1 I am very interested in horse fossil teeth but have focused on pre-Equus. To tell the truth I just do not know a lot or can tell differences between Equus variations like Equus Simplicidens or Equus Complicatus, etc but I am about to learn!! My education should focus on Florida because that is what I tend to find, but I am interested in but I am interested in any publications that can effectively differentiate

    Dolphin Periotic

    I am blessed to(still) be finding a few interesting but small fossils. This 1st one is a very high quality horse ear bone, and the 2nd is a clump of silicified coral with a little Botryoidal druzy growing inside. I always enjoy sharing these. And ... the last is easy. It is a Dolphin earbone (size 33 x 18.5 x 11 mm) ... a periotic. But I want to know which dolphin. and for that I need an experienced eye. @Boesse I hope that I have provided enough views. It might be a number of different Marine Mammals. See this recent thread to understand why I ask for

    Small Predator Astragalus

    I went hunting yesterday and after a week off. Summer hunting is different, 98% of the Peace River is way too deep to hunt without scuba equipment. The Mosquitos swarm you, more in the woods, but also when you are in the river. The Results are generally not up to in season standards. I tend to find some different fossils on a summer hunting trip and this fit that pattern. Top right are tilly bones, more than normal. Lower left has some ray mouth plates not broken into single or half single teeth. That is a juvenile dugong vert, the best I have found at this size. A sawfish rostral tooth
  8. 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!

    Another day in paradise

    Hunting trip to the Peace River. This is my day "job". The weather is very hot... mid-90s Fahrenheit, little breeze. It is very nice to be standing in a river. With the sun bearing down, I frequently submerge to my chin to cool off. We anticipate afternoon thunderstorms to roll in and soak us. Sometime thunder and lightening add to the experience. Usually there is insufficient time to reach cover before getting drenched. Sooner or later we'll get enough days with thunderstorms that will refill the river from its current low levels. Today is a sorting and photo taking day, wh
  10. HI EVERYONE! Have not posted in a year. Working 2 jobs leaves no time for nothing but, I did manage to get out a couple times at least to my favorite spots and found something interesting maybe. The most unusual thing about it is the color. I found this in the Peace River Bone Valley formation. The water is tannin in this river colors everything dark. The first pic is a group photo of my finds. You will see it clearly stands out. also including some close-ups and I am sorry I am not great at all taking pictures. Its approx. 2'' at its longest point or 50mm. Its about 1'' or 25mm across. Thank

    A Peace River Location

    As noted elsewhere, I am accelerating into the end of season on the Peace River. More days hunting, less sleep at night. I am finding lots of items to identify, but not much time to photo, and post. Normally I find Pleistocene mammal fossils, but in the huge variety of the Peace River, I sometimes run across something else. Just sharing a different set of fossils. Along with Equus and Tapir teeth, I start finding seashells, most are broken fragments because there are lots of rocks and bedrock in the river, but a few recognizable. Lots of this showing up on my sieve.

    Bones...big bones

    Out again today (4th day this week) trying to beat the summer rains. Big focus is bones, two of them. The 1st bone seems to me to be a Calcaneum. The 2nd Bone.

    Predator molar

    I was out hunting today.. Gorgeous. Sun shining, middle 90s, cooled by the Peace River. I need to investigate a small vertebra and what seems to be a fish tooth before asking for IDs. But for this thread, a slightly broken molar that seems like it came from a predator. I do not have accurate size measurements, but judging by the size of my fingers, the length of the chewing surface and the crown height are both approximately 1 inch.

    Seal Canine

    I went out hunting today in the Peace River and found some very nice fossils, which were unusual for the Peace River. then this... A 54 mm Canine. I showed it to a couple of people, who both responded "likely seal". I searched the internet for fossil seal canines. Take a look at the enamel tip. It is distinctive! However, all the fossils identified as Seal Canines have tips not remotely similar to the one I found. What am I missing ? Also , I thought about the age of this fossil. Just by sea level measurements over the last 20 million years, we know that ther

    Mammal tooth

    A friend asked me to ID this one, and he and I have a different view of what it might be. So I will ask the help of my friends on the fossil forum. I believe that Harry IDed a tooth just like this one a couple of years back, but we'll see. Thanks for any all IDs

    Peace river fossil id

    Found in Peace River, Florida. Can’t find an ID anywhere
  21. Every now and then something weird shows up in my sifter. Look at this cute little guy. Hexagonal shape with a faint raised area in the middle. Texture, shape, thickness all seem right for a giant armadillo, but the size is tiny. I've never seen one this small. Can someone confirm or deny this? Could this be from a baby/juvenile? Could it be a baby glyptodont. I'm stumped.

    Molar ID Please

    Hey there! My daughter found this broken Molar and we are looking for an ID please. I have a couple ideas but I'm not 100%. She found it in the Peace river. Thank you so much received_346860370331641.mp4
  23. I'm stumped on this oddball. It looks damaged and is suffering from some delamination of the outer shell, but the core is intact and it looks like the entire top chewing surface is visible. What is it? A very worn cetacean tooth? A suggestive broken portion of mammoth tooth? Some other vertebrate critter? Found in the middle Peace River, Bone Valley formation, Hawthorn group - Desoto County Florida. Thanks!
  24. This is another one that has me stumped. At first glance, it was chunkosaurus. On closer examination, it has some curvature and features that might help identification. Does anyone know what this is? The last time I found something roughly similar to this, it turned out to be part of a horse knee or something like that. Found in the Peace River, Bone Valley, DeSoto County, FL. Thanks!
  25. Got up with the chickens yesterday morning and got on the road at 7:00am with my wife Tina, stepdaughter Rebekah, and grandson Ben. Tina, Ben, and I were in "the barge" - my big flat tandem kayak that maneuvers like a battleship. Rebekah took the single kayak. We got to the ramp right about 9:00am and went upstream with the goal of heading far north to a good spot we had scouted previously. Immediately it was obvious that the river was extremely low - lower than I have ever seen it. Several kayakers were launching at the same time as us and most of them didn't look local - it must
