    Bone identification needed.

    I collect armadillo fossils. All of my fossils have been purchased and I have been able to identify most of them using the internet. The attached photos are from bones I purchased labeled Holmesina carpals. Both seem to be the same bone, one from holmesina septentrionalis and one from holmesina floridanus (my guess). They are both river finds from Northern Florida, USA. I have not been able to find a photo or diagram showing this bone. Does anyone have a photo or diagram showing this bones position in the skeleton. If these bones are not from the Holmesina genus, I would like to know th
  2. So I recently found an at-the-time unidentified small armadillo osteoderm in Paynes Creek. I immediately assumed due to its overall thickness - that being much thicker than the Dasypus bellus osteoderms I’ve found - as well as where I found it, that it was an osteoderm from the much rarer Pachyarmatherium leiseyi. My first step in confirming this was google, to which I found incredibly little information to discern between the two. There was plenty of info on D. bellus, however. My next step was to check here, including the thread that @Shellseeker had created and linked me when I found

    Glyptotherium sp?

    Can anyone tell me if this is a piece of carapace from a glyptodont? It's the closest thing I can find, but mine doesn't have the "daisy" appearance, so I may be wrong, or it may just be really worn. Ventral side is too worn to look for a foramen. Found in Goose Creek, SC where we are finding a mix of things, but mainly Pleistocene (I think...still a newbie). Thank you!

    Small toe bone

    Life is good. I go out tomorrow to the Peace River. I was also there Monday.. There were a few nice finds. I found 1/2 of a carnassial, maybe dire wolf. Seems like I found a mostly whole one in early February. Here is an interesting toe bone. Back 10 years ago , I found a Toe bone, identified as Jaguar 39 mm Medial phalanx by TFF experts. Note the recess to accomodate a retractable claw in the left of the 1st photo.. Then Monday, another toe bone, only 25.5 mm in the sieve. BIG smile. I think once again it is a Medial phalanx. So, is it a Feline M
  7. This seems too "bubbly" to be turtle shell. Any ideas? Found Myrtle Beach, January, 2022. Thin, bubbly texture on both sides. Marrow type stipling inbetween.
  8. Decided to go for a hunt yesterday after my Saturday plans were canceled due to two flat tires. The weather report had it as a cold day to start with an expected warm up y midday. When I got to the river at a little before 8:00 am the temperature was 40* F with a light breeze. Got the kayak set to go then donned my wetsuit with a jacket style life preserver over it to block the wind. Even then I also put on a hooded sweatshirt and gloves for the paddle to my hunting site. As I approached the area I planned to search for the day I stopped to take a few photos of the sun rising over the riv

    Mystery osteoderm

    At first I thought this was a neural bone from a turtle but now I'm wondering if it might be a mammalian osteoderm (3cm long x 1cm thick). From a north Florida river. - Zach

    Glyptodont?

    @Rockwood Wouldn't this be too big to be glyptodont? Or am I missing something? Including one I found for size reference.

    Interesting Bones

    I went hunting with @minnbuckeye Monday and in another thread discussed a couple of Hipparion horse teeth I found. We found lots of fossils. For example, here are 3 unusual ones. One is an Emmons fish tooth, only the 2nd that I have ever found, another a very rare Osteoderm from Pachyarmatherium_leiseyi, and then an oddly worn dolphin earbone (or at least shaped like a dolphin earbone). In this fossil ID thread, I am not trying to ID any of these. Here is a bone to ID. On all 3 photos, you can see bone on bone wear patterns, which seems to imply this bone is almost
  13. Found this fossil inland, Venice, FL. Early Pleistocene material. I believe this is perhaps tortoise shell showing spinal attachment point to vertebrae. Piece. Measures 17cm x 13cm x 5cm thick. All photos taken at 1x. I look forward to reading your remarks. - Michael

    Peace River ID help

    Got out to the Peace River, FL yesterday for another hunt. The water level finally seemed low enough that I would be able to get to my target spot and have a productive day. The only problem was the fact that the sun never came out and I had to quit early due to getting wet and cold with no way to warm up. Luckily I had my emergency dry shirt to change into before I started shivering! I always keep one on board the kayak sealed in a plastic bag. Came up with several of the usual items, horse tooth, partial megs, couple of hemis, turtle and a nice gator tooth. Then I pulled up what I believ

    Dasypus Imbricating Band

    Hi everyone, I know I haven't posted any fossils in the ID section for a while, but one recent post caught my eye. I immediately recognized a fossil on that post to be similar, if not the same as one I found in the Peace River in Florida back in the February of 2018. I now believe it's the imbricating band of some type of armadillo (likely Dasypus). It's about 2 cm long by .6 cm wide. I'd be happy to hear your input! Here's my specimen Here's some images provided by @Harry Pristis
  16. I found this oddball in the same spot where I found a broken armadillo/sloth tooth that I posted in another thread. (Peace River, Bone Valley, Florida, likely Pleistocene). I can't decide if this is a very worn and beat-up (and large) turtle scute, or a "chunkasaurus" bone fragment, or possibly a beat-up osteoderm from a giant armadillo or something else glyptodont-adjacent. Does anyone else think this looks like an osteoderm or is it just my eyes fooling me?

    Multiple Hunts this week

    I get out hunting as often as I am able. In addition to the fossil finds, I am at a point in life where exercise has great value and fossil hunting the Peace River watershed 3 times a week does get the muscles moving and the blood flowing. Add the great feeling with getting out into nature which I share with numerous animals of all types and this is just about a perfect hobby, BUT, not always a successful one. I think that I, over the long run, find one impressive fossil a week... What about this week? A lot of folks are saying that the Peace River water depth is dropping and this is o

    North Sulphur River

    I had a few finds at the North Sulphur River Texas yesterday. All the bars were covered in mud so it made for hard hunting. The tiny mosasaur tooth was my favorite find of the day.

    Holmesina I hope

    After much research I feel fairly confident that this is a scute from Holmesina-septentrionalis. What do you think? Can I label it as such? Thanks for looking.

    Post Oak Creek

    I hit my honey hole at Post Oak Creek Texas again. I found a few good Ptychodus teeth, another crustacean and my first giant armadillo scute. it was worth the 5 hr round trip.
  21. I came upon this beauty in Post Oak Creek, Sherman; Grayson Co. Texas this past weekend which looks like a very large Armadillo scute. I didn't think that they migrated into the north Texas region? It measures 1 1/2" long and 1 1/8" wide. Cretaceous, Lower Austin / Upper Eagle Ford Formation
