    Peace River Fossil ID

    Possible ear bone maybe ? Very light weight
  3. 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!

    Found this last weekend while hunting in Horse Creek. Looks like a claw from? Have not seen anything like it before. Not anything recent, definitely fossil. Thanks

    Small Mandible from Peace river

    Recently found, very small, roughly 1.5 inches. Any ideas? Doesn't look like feline or canine. Thanks

    Large unknown from Florida

    Found a large chunk of bone while fossil hunting in Florida earlier this month. Found in a tributary to the Peace River near Arcadia. Not sure there is enough left to get a useful identification, but figured I would post and see how it goes. The chunk is roughly 5 x 4 x 2.5 inches, the grid underneath is quarter inch squares.
  9. Finally managed to get out for a few hours when I visited Florida earlier this month. Walked in to a Peace river tributary where I got to spend a few hours shifting gravel while keeping an eye on the local wildlife. Was interesting how different the finds were when compared to the previous site which was about 25 miles further north. Nothing overly special, but was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Found a lot of bone fragments this trip, but no dugong which surprised me after my first experience. There were also fewer shark teeth this time around. Not sure what the big b
  10. Hello I am setting a 4 day trip to Florida with my son to find Shark Teeth and bone mid March. He is a teenager and experienced; we did a Summer trip to Summerville, SC. We hear rains have Florida rivers and streams fairly high right now? We have never hunted for fossils in Florida; but are looking to areas along the Peace River and researched Arcadia may be a good central location? We are thinking of doing: * Day 1 - Excursion with a guide (allows us to familiarize us with the area; dos and don'ts) * Day 2 - Hit Peace River (I have some

    Found today in Arcadia

    I found these today a foot apart, definitely bone. My laptop camera is all I have working at the moment. No recent breaks and the don't fit each other, I guesstimate the larger one weighs 10 pounds. I plan to return tomorrow, being found so close together is encouraging. Not found in the river but in flood ponds near the river.
  12. Well this is really going to be a picture heavy, ID lacking, report on various areas that I visited on the way down and back from Sanibel Island, Florida.I just don't have the time to flesh this report out, but I wanted to show some of the "smalls" that I collected. When it comes to the shells from Florida, the pics are only a representative view of some of the different species that I collected, and I collected a lot. To be honest with you, I am finding the collecting of fossil shells more fun that any other fossils that I collect. My first stop, was one that I posted earlier, bu

    Sloth tooth?

    Is this possibly a Sloth tooth? I believe I read somewhere, they don't have enamel ? IIRC? This seems to have enamel and I pretty sure it is a tooth, any input is appreciated, thanks!

    Am i spoiled?

    I live in Arcadia Fl and have much time to dig in the peace river. I have a pretty extensive collection of great fossils. My favorites are mammal teeth and large verts. Still after that giant meg. As a Fl resident (and native) I find it hard to get excited about marine fossils, every roadbed is loaded with them, literally made of them. I suppose if I lived in Nebraska, I would feel differently. Any other FL members, feel this way? I am sure I am selling myself short and missing some fascinating paleontology, cant help it, the peace river is 8 blocks away.

    Ear bone?

    Hope these pics came out OK. I think this may be the inner ear bone (bulea?) of a whale? Found in the peace river, I don't think the dime made it in the pic. It is very dense and fills the palm of the hand, I bet it weighs, 3 ounces.
  16. I was rearranging some fossils and came across a couple boxes of Florida fossil shells that I collected about 10 years ago from a shell pit near Arcadia, Florida. These shells I believe came out of the Caloosahatchee Formation. I was recently told that the owner of this pit had passed away and that access to this pit is no longer available. At the time of my visit, it was with a "paid guide" that got me and about 10 other people in. While they waded to a small island that was in the pit looking for meg teeth, I went for the guaranteed find- shells. I will have to work on ID's at a later point,

    Endocast or original

    A week or so back I posted a few shells I had found in a shell pile above Arcadia Florida. In the intervening time, Hurricane Irma chased me from Sanibel to Ormond on the Atlantic Ocean. I drove back today, constantly looking for gas and coming down Route 17 which was hard hit by the hurricane (washed out roads, trees, power lines, telephone lines down). I paused at one of my favorite Peace River launch sites: Heard Bridge. For anyone who has been there , these two photos are almost unbelievable. It is normally 30 feet between the bottom of the bridge to the river; The parking area no

    Want a serious case of fossil envy?

    An awesome website to visit is, "Carl Lewis paleo Fl." He lives in Arcadia and is a local plumber. He takes his airboat out on the peace river and dives deeper areas. He finds like 10 20 megs a day! Mastadon jaws with teeth present, a 9 foot tusk! Horse jaws with all teeth present! Just all kinds of pieces of museum quality. Check out his website, he has excellent pics of every years finds back to 1999.

    Question, I have been digging ALOT in the peace river in Arcadia this year, not one dugong rib. Yet I can head north 7 miles or so to Brownville and find at least 5 a day. Why do yall think this is? Thanks.

    Met Mark renz today!

    I live in arcadia fl. I have been noticing a good size group digging south of HWY 70 bridge on the peace river. I went and talked to em several days about finds. Today I talked to a nice fella, conversation turned to a book I own "fossiling in Fl. A guide for diggers and divers" He asked me how I liked it? I said it was a good book! He goes in his truck and produces a book, he shows me a picture and asks if it looks familiar? I sais that is you! Yep, Mark Renz in the flesh! A small world! He gave me 2 books of his, Giants in the storm and Desert sharks. His wi

    Score on the river

    Hello forum, new member who lives in Arcadia Fl. Went out today for a while on the peace, a very nice hemi, colorful. Two nice small (medicine?)bottles. Two, half, nice glyptodons. A decent mako, lots of odds n ends. Was getting ready to leave, the "one more scoop" bug, hit me. Glad it did, (I use a home, welded, 1/4 inch, steel, triangle rake/basket. I shake the scoop, up pops a vert of very good size. Weight of about 4 or 5 ounces, big around as a mountain bike tire, at least two inches tall. On a good note, the recent storm, at this point, only bought the river up about 3
