  1. Shellseeker


    I have not been out hunting enough, which has me looking at old TFF threads. I posted this canine 5 years ago in FosslID , but did not get much feedback and it faded without me learning much about it. Originally, I thought Alligator, because of the hollow root. but it did not have a horizontal edge between enamel and root, and the root was not an oval shape. Then I considered Dire wolf, because of the shape of the enamel, and the shaped carina down the side. I wondered at that time if the tooth was unerupted. I have never found/identified a Dire Wolf fossil from this site

    Small finds to ID

    Finding my favorites, Gomph, a Meg, Tridactyl horse, and a Periotic.. A enjoyable day in the sunshine with friends... The Meg came early but also found some nice Lemons, Tigers, and Sand Tigers. For identification, a couple of small Horse teeth... 1st has been slightly broken, but likely very identifiable. When we talk about the smallest of Florida Horse teeth, this lower must be a candidate. As we were picking thru the final sieves, this Cetacean periotic added excitement. It is the smallest one I have seen.. @Boesse

    Curious finds

    Some more items that I found last Sunday with out with @DirtyHippie and @jcbshark..Had a few questions... Much of this went into the collection bag, with the view that I would figure it out later... I had previously found many rostral teeth in the Peace River of different types. I only have one bigger than this one. The grove on the bottom identifies the genus as Pristis and I thought it was P. lathami. What's confusing me is that P. lathami seems restricted to Eocene/Oligocene but I have found many in the Peace River. So my question is what species of Sawfish possesses this to

    Unusual Bone

    I found this bone hunting with @DirtyHippie. It seemed Odd in that we were primarily finding marine material (shark, marine mammal, dugong) in a PlioMiocene layer. I immediately thought Pleistocene calcaneum, tossed into my collection bag and continued hunting. After looking at it for a couple of hours, checking out Ulna, Radioulna for many mammals, I have decided to request help. The broken bone is 83 x 20 x 17 mm... about 3.25 inches long

    Florida Dolphins

    You are probably aware that @DirtyHippie came to Brownsville, found an extremely productive likely Miocene location and promptly invited a number of TFF members to join in the excitement. You can read about it and see many of the finds here.. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/129917-peace-river-tributaries-part-ii-hemi-heaven-continued/ I joined last Sunday and managed to find a dolphin Bulla that @Boesse identified as Eurhinodelphis. In his trip report, Brian had 9 Dolphin and I am interested in seeing if I can track down, possible IDs... In this case, I

    Miocene Horse lower tooth

    Went hunting Thursday. Found a couple of Megs, some small horse teeth, dermal denticles, barracuda teeth, and a bunch of small shark teeth *(Sand Tigers, Bull.Dusky, Hemis, Lemons). The only Horse tooth in decent shape is a lower right cheek tooth. Mostly, I find Nannippus, either aztecus or less frequently westoni. Here is a recent aztecus for comparison to this new find. The new tooth: @fossillarry

    Bone Valley Oddity

    I was out today hunting with friends. Little shark teeth, a couple of small Megs, a couple of barracuda teeth and then this... I have never seen anything like it, close on 15 years hunting these locales. I can hope other have. It seems to be enamel. Can it be a tooth ?, a tilly bone, ... a fragment of tusk... Speculations absolutely encouraged !!!! In this last photo, I find those "bumps" around 15 mm interesting. The outside texture on both sides reminds me of whale or maybe gomph. What is this ?
  9. So found this today - my immediate thought was canine. Originally thought no enamel - but I brushed it, with a tooth brush - and it’s got white enamel. So… any help is appreciated! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker After brushing:
  10. Another bone valley ID - read this thread and I’m pretty sure it’s an ectocuneiform and not a Magnum or navicular. Measures 30x19x6.5mm. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @fossillarry

    6 small upper horse teeth

    My last time out hunting was 2 weeks ago, just before the deluge. Found some nice items including 2 small upper horse teeth, and then stopped at a hunting friend's home, where he sold me a number of fossils, including 4 additional small horse upper molars. 1st tooth I believe to be Merychippus from the Miocene of Florida. I found/donated one of these to Richard Hulbert, Florida Museum of Natural History 18 months ago. It looks like some HSBs --- Hunter_Schreger Bands are more easily discernible than on Equus teeth. Tooth #2.... One of my finds... a Nannippus I think... there

    Rhino Re_identification

    Back in February, my partner found a small tooth that I initially thought to be Gomph. I made him an offer he couldn't refuse. I sent some photos to Richard Hulbert and (surprisingly to me) Richard identified it as a Rhino upper cheek tooth. I did not argue, and once I spotted the Hunter_Schreger Bands in the 1st photos, thought the ID to be correct , although I have never seen an upper Rhino tooth that had this wear pattern. This is what upper T. proterum Rhino teeth look like in Florida, Does anyone recognize my tooth in this photo below? Fast forward to

  14. Shellseeker


    Out hunting yesterday... went by myself. Not always a wise choice. But I was a Boy Scout some eons ago. Always be prepared. Heavy rains in the area increased the flow rate. Going a little faster than I should have on the way back, caught a log 6 inches below the surface, flipped the kayak as neat as you please. Having experienced this before, everything was in the hatches or lashed down, paddle leashed, no hat ,no sunglasses. Had my sit_in kayak, so as I resurfaced , grabbed the side of the cockpit and my weight pulled it over upright... along with 10 or 15 gallons of water. The wa

    A curious bone

    I just created a thread with lots of fossils. With those fossils, I found this bone, which has some unique aspects but may be difficult to ID, and since I wanted this ID the most, decided to put it in a separate thread. The other thread in case you need some easier IDs. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/125931-another-set-of-fossils/ All comments appreciated... I thought it might be jaw because of the groove in this 1st photo.... The 2nd photo had me thinking proximal phalanx At 5 inches, this is a large animal, and just taking a shot

    Another set of fossils

    I have only been out twice this month. Life interferes. A couple of weeks back I posted this thread with the fossils I wanted to identify most and got good participation to identify 3 of 4. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/125703-hunting-florida-interesting-finds/&tab=comments#comment-1366710 I found a bunch of other fossils, some of which I thought I knew, some not... I am trying to use the fossils to date the layer... Here is a list so you can copy and replace with your IDs 1) sawfish rostral tooth 2) turtle Osteoderm or Deer ungual.

    Small Shark tooth

    I found this small tooth years back in one of the numerous Bone Valley creeks that produce colorful teeth. I never was positive on the ID, thinking it was likely Carcharhinus .sp, but not shaped like the common Bull or Dusky I was finding in the Peace River, similar to the one directly below. Just stumbled over the photo below, looking for well preserved fossils. I only have this single photo.. Hope it is enough....

    Bison premolar

    6 months ago, hunting with a partner who found this tooth that I initially identified as Rhino. See those crossing lines in the thin enamel of the 1st two photos. I had seen that in other Rhino tooth enamel found in this location. Before asking TFF for an Id on any fossil, I search TFF for similar fossils and found a thread where @Harry Pristis identified a very similar tooth as Cow or Bison. I never put this one up for identification on TFF. Today, I was commenting on this FossilID thread posted by @Done Drillin http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/12464

    Summertime Hunting

    In the summer, my hunting strategies change. The Peace River is too fast and deep for successful hunting. I travel farther into Bone Valley, either land hunting or very remote lakes, rivers, creeks. Generally, I see no other hunters. I have a few spots that I know about but hunt sparsely and save as last resorts. I am having difficulty making time for hunting. Wife is away to SC, and I am on dog sitting duty, guests and relatives are arriving later this week and next. So, Monday was one of the few days I could go.. My hunting partner called Sunday night, had to back out. I went anyway,

    Hubbel and Barb

    Out Yesterday, Miocene Bone Valley.. Normally I find small broken and whole shark teeth, stingray teeth, barbs, and dermal denticles and an occasional prize. This was no different, The prizes were small Megs... Almost everything has a bluish tint.. I like the FAT roots on these Megs, and I especially liked this one which is my 1st whole Hubble Meg. I have been hunting 14 years. These are not common. Here are some very nice Hubble Megs from Harry's Gallary In additional to sharing the Meg, a question... Do any Sting ray Barbs not have side serrat

    Different ages, same site

    I was out hunting yesterday to a miocene_pliocene site that produces mostly small shark teeth with occasional surprises. In this instance there were three. 1st up... Upper molar Nannippus aztecus (11-5 mya) upper molar. Certainly Nannippus, likely aztecus based on size and location. Next , my unknown, a dolphin periotic earbone, 29 x 16 mm well worn and found in a miocene site. @Boesse And finally a Bison or Bos lower m3 unerupted enamel cap .. no roots. I was quite excited seeing the complete enamel in excellent unworn quality. But based on size

    A Canine or Tusk

    One of the enjoyable things of this hobby is friends sending me photos of their finds. Usually I try to post my own fossils, because I have them in hand and take additional photos and measure, etc etc. This one arrived today, a land find from a pit in Bone Valley.. I asked for additional photos and measurements, but felt I could show you the photo I have and request input. To me, it looks to be 3-4 inches and has some distinctive markings. I have a guess, but will wait on yours.. Jack

    Small Cannon bone

    I was out hunting fossils yesterday and was quite successful, although many of the finds were covered with algae, concretions and unusually stained. There were fewer small shark teeth and many larger, broken, fragmented mammal bones. Found a number of Equus, camel, and possibly modern calf teeth... damaged and encrusted. The larger bones potentially identifiable are most interesting. That's a couple of Camel (likely Hemiauchenia.sp) Metatarsal 3s in the left middle. a phalanx and very small Ulna in the right middle of the photo. For this thread, I am interested in i

    What is it?

    When I first picked up this fossil, I noted lines that reminded me of fossilized ivory, but not quite. A friend polishes fossils and rocks....I asked that he polish one end... Sometimes it looks like bone.... And sometimes it looks like fossilized wood, and occassionally, I seem to see Schreger lines. All suggestions appreciated.

    Flat Dermal Denticle

    This is a 1st for me, a denticle that is this thin, this large. I dimly recall hearing somewhere that these came from sharks, not stingrays. Let's see if some more knowledgeable than I concur. @Al Dente @MarcoSr@siteseer
