    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
  3. 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
  6. 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.
  11. 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

    Peace river scute of some kind

    I found this yesterday in the Peace River and only really looked at it now, I think it’s an armadillo scute but I’m not %100 sure. Help is appreciated!
  13. 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

    A little of my son's art work

    We had a few requests to see some of the art work my 17 year old son Carter is creating for our education programs. Due to the fact that I am a dad first and he is still a senior in high school, we will not have a lot of finished art before summer. I do not let him spend much time on this stuff yet. He was okay with me posting a few early versions of the sharks we are covering. Educating kids and getting fossils into their hands was not the only reason we started this. He wants to be an artist and I support that. I am paying him for his work and he has a title, scientific illustrator. He has h
  15. I found this worn bone fragment on Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. It's about 2 3/8" x 1 1/4". After looking at it, it has a home plate shape similar to armadillo and turtle scutes. It appears to have a plate on the front and back, possibly the plastron and carapace of a turtle? (I have 6 views)
  16. Well, I think I am done. I was out on Memorial day. The water was waist to chest level. I rarely go back to back days so Wednesday the 30th was possible. I had an interesting morning -- see below. 6 inches up was barely hand-able... We left a little after noon. Did find some neat fossils: This place is worth a return visit. Interesting open cavity at the end of the root. Very fragile #s 2,3,4. I know what these are... because I have seen them previously. I find thousands of the Asian clam ,an invasive species in the Peace River but I am hoping that @MikeR

    claws

    I found these together in the Peace River yesterday. I am pretty confident they are from one of the Xenarthrans, but not clear on which one. The sizes overlap and are too close to being the same for me to say. I suspect Glyptodont or Holmesina.Thoughts?

    Is this Dasypus bellus ?

    This the smallest armadillo osteoderm that I have found yet. Is it even possible to ID it to species? I found it today in Sacha's 'frog toe' matrix.

    Peace River, again

    Last week I tied my previous (paltry) record for last season's number of visits to the Peace River on an outing with John (@Sacha). Last weekend I surpassed that measly mark by making it to the river for a third time in as many weeks. On a good course to have a record setting year if water and weather cooperate. Weather brought my brother Dan and his Wife Jen from Chicago for a long weekend. The day before they left the chilly north that was in the grips of an Arctic blast, he sent me this photo from his car's dashboard as he was driving to work in the morning. I said it looked lik

    A couple old finds to ID

    Both of these fossils come from Peace river in Florida. Judging from the edge and size I'm wondering if the top one is from the scapula of a mammoth/mastodon? Either that or something from a whale. Any ideas? The bottom is an armadillo scute that I once mistook for scrap bone and left in the scrap box until being rediscovered. Any way to tell if it's Holmesia septentrionalisis or Holmesina floridanus? Thanks

    Dec14th Peace River

    About to travel for the holidays and need to pack. Just a few minutes for this post. Out today, hunting the Peace River. What a GORGEOUS !!! day. Sun shining, warm water, out in nature. None of those fantastic finds this day, bit even an average day on the Peace is pretty good. Lots of small shark teeth, many of them broken, a couple of turtle spurs, glyptodont osteoderms, puffer fish mouth plates all with quality issues. And then these.. .
