Peace River trip January 31st
Shellseeker posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsOut with my most frequent hunting partner. With the cold weather turning warmer, and the river dropping, we have been prospecting sites that proved productive in previous seasons. It does not always pay off.. sometimes the locations have been covered by feet of sand or the gravel we were digging in last year has been carried downstream to parts unknown. Today was sunny and warm, we checked one location for 90 minutes followed by another and both were good (lots of small shark teeth) but not great.. We moved to a third location that we had hunted extensively in previous years and once ag
Capybara, maybe sloth
Shellseeker posted a topic in Fossil IDLast August, I found a broken bone. The unbroken part reminded me of a Rhino astragalus. I posted a Fossil_ID thread but not much feedback, The following week I did some internet searching for fossil astragali... and found this one for sale by @PrehistoricFlorida.

It's curtains for the Peace River...
digit posted a topic in Fossil Hunting Trips...at least for me for this season. I'll be out of the country over the next two weekends and then off to Greece on vacation for most of June so I'll likely not get another chance at hunting the Peace River this season unless something really unusual happens with the weather. I expect rainy season to have started by the time I'm back from Greece and the Peace will likely be several feet higher that it is at the moment. Currently, the Peace is as low as I've seen it this season. During a heavy drought several years back I've seen the Peace about a foot lower than it is now which mad
partial Capybara I think
cayosusa posted a topic in Fossil IDPretty sure this is part of a capybara tooth. Am I right? Found in the Peace River
Sunday with Friends
Shellseeker posted a topic in Fossil IDI was out hunting the last 2 days with friends. I enjoy the experience. Sunday was far more productive. Here is a large bone. I found 2-3 of these with similar quality. Maybe I will find an equivalent LARGE tooth to be sure, but usually I think of these as Proboscidea.. Hosenose for short.

Sometimes I take them for auctions or fossil digs for kids. I have questions on this one.. Note the large amount of muscle attachment bone modificat
