    Stingray dermal plate?

    Yesterday I was in a creek that I haven't been to in a while. I got the normal fossils, mainly shark teeth and the occasional meg frag or mako, but I also got these strange fossils that I have never seen before. The first one reminds me of a dolphin ear bone we got earlier this year, so I was wandering if it was some sort of ear bone. The second fossil I am very curious about. At first I thought fossil barnacle, but it appears to have enamel on top. The closest thing I could compare it to was a stingray dermal plate I saw in a book, but the bottom of mine seems
  2. Greetings, In Manatee County, Florida I recently found this very large piece of whale skull with the ear bone STILL ATTACHED!! The entire piece is about 1 foot long and 1 foot wide (30.48 cm) and the ear is 3” long or 7.62 cm. I did not know that was what it was when I brought it home as it was completely packed with material. (I just knew it was a very large and very heavy bone). I found out it was actually an amazing discovery about 20 minutes into cleaning it when the perfectly preserved ear bone started showing through the material. I have found countless whale bulla fossils but i
  3. I got a box of micro matrix from PaleoCris - Bone Valley Formation from Florida and I am STUNNED by the beautiful colors and preservation! I knew Bone Valley stuff was good...but wow. And he threw in some "extra" fossils of a nice big echinoid and a claw of some thing...maybe extinct armadillo. I still havn't gone through all the matrix, but wanted to show ya'll some of the nice stuff: All are around 1/8 inch - 1/4 inch This crazy Fish tooth plate - Labrodon sp. I think this is Baracuda? I love the little ray teeth Rhynchobatus. Sadly, this one
  4. I had found this tooth a while ago and was just now realizing it wasn’t in fact a shark tooth like I had originally thought - or at least I believe it isn’t, so any ID is appreciated! There’s very slightly worn away serrations on the blade near the root, the camera didn’t pick ‘em up. Also found this piece of bone (I think it’s bone, honestly could be rock) that looked pretty interestingly shaped, so I wanted to get an ID (or be told it’s rock if that’s the case!) 1) Tooth: 2) Bone?

    Bone ID Help!

    Need some help with this piece of bone please. Thank you!
  6. Got tons of shark teeth (Tigers, Lemon, Bull, Snaggletooth), ray mouth plates, some ray barbs, some horse teeth fragment, some sea turtle shell pieces, and dugong bone rib pieces that I'm more than happy to trade for... well anything that people would want to trade for! Feel free to PM me, I've got plenty of the above to trade!
  7. Back on the peace today, found a bunch of mammoth tooth frags and whatever this other thing is, and I’m not sure if the frag IS a frag. 1) Mammoth frag? 2) Whatever this is, maybe it’s chert, maybe it’s a fossil?
  8. So I was originally planning on going kayaking to find my own spot today on the peace but the kayaking plans fell through, so I had to sadly resort to a boat ramp. Public area, heavily hunted. Still, came away with some decent stuff! To start off, the biggest and most complete Meg I’ve ever pulled out of the Peace (No, I still haven’t found one that’s got even 75% of it left ) This is probably the coolest pattern on a shark tooth I’ve seen on this Tiger Shark tooth: Next is the nicest mammoth molar fragment I’ve found, with a bunch of o

    Florida scuba find-Large bone

    Found in the peace river. Larger bone and looks to be a socket bone. Any idea? It’s broken but much of it remains

    Not a Canine

    I was out hunting the Peace River with a friend today. We had some success. He found what initially appeared to be a canine. It was small (36 x 12 mm) jet black with a darker enamel like tip. I decided to take some photos while on the river. I kept on trying to get better photos of the "scars" , but as it dried out, I decided it was not a tooth. So, what is it. I have never seen anything like it, even though it has the general shape of a tilly bone. Maybe others have seen similar from Florida Rivers... @digit @Harry Pristis @Sacha It is hard fossilized, like a tooth or
  11. Need some help with this piece of Mandible please. Thank you!
  12. So went to peace River today, and as always, I come back with ID’s being needed! So a few different things today. 1. Possible piece of tusk? It’s got cross-hatched lines on it which makes me think of Schreger lines. 2. Another thing I thought may be tusk, for the same reason. 3. I’m almost certain this is a mammoth tooth fragment, but I wanted confirmation! 4. Are these hammerhead shark teeth, or lemon? Thanks in advance! 1) Tusk? 2) Also tusk? 3) Mammoth tooth frag? 4) Hammerhe
  13. So I went hunting in Bone Valley yesterday, the same paid dig site I had originally gone to and met @Nimravis at, and came away with some gorgeous finds! To start off with my favorite find - a part of a Gomphothere tooth and a few other fragments: Then of course, as always, some Megs - found 3 complete ones with a bunch of frags, the complete ones are all small, 2”, 1.5”, and 1.2” in slant height: I also found a very complete Three-Toed Horse tooth: I found a whole bunch of sand tiger shark teeth, including, finally, one with a cusp:

    Bone Valley Find

    I’m currently at a pay site, collecting Bone Valley fossils. An individual next to me found this bone fragment, can someone identify what it is? It looks familiar, but what it is is not coming to mind right now. @Shellseeker

    Tiger shark?

    Found in Tampa area likely from shell pit. Haven't found one of these, is it tiger shark? Its decent size for what I've found in other species. Appreciate thoughts!

    Bone Valley Crocodilian Gastrolith?

    So did some fossil hunting yesterday and found what I was told was a Crocodilian Gastrolith. Which while technically just a rock, is still a really cool find. So I wanted to see if anyone else could confirm the ID or not!

    A Fossil A Day.....

    A Fossil A Day....keeps the blues away! Or something like that... I started an Instragram account (jamielynnfossilquest) and am posting a fossil a day, so I figured I should do that on here, to REAL fossil enthusiasts! I'm a few days behind, so I will start out with a few more than one a day but then it will settle down to One Fossil (but I will admit, I'll probably miss a few days, but I'll double up or whatever.) I'll start with Texas Pennsylvanian era, but will branch out to other locations and time periods, so expect a little of everything! So enjoy A Fossil A Day! Texas

    Santa Fe River help ID

    Found this near the Santa Fe and I cannot decipher the origin. At first I thought it was some kind of a turtle but all the research describes a much thinner fossil

    Peace River find-what is it?

    Found in the peace river, Florida. Any ideas? Thanks

    Carved Shark Tooth Fossil

    Hi, I found these teeth several years ago on a beach near Venice, Florida. At the time, I didn’t notice the one with what appears to be a primitive type carving on it. I do not normally hunt nor collect shark teeth so any expert opinions would be great appreciated:)
  25. Some IDs needed for fossils from my hunt yesterday, so any help would be appreciated! 1) Not sure if this is a sea robin skull or something else. 2) I think this is a very worn tooth from something? 3) Preeeeeeeetty sure this is just a rock with some interesting layers - but I’ve found them on occasion and figured I may as well ask: 4) Very thick piece of what I originally thought was sea turtle shell, but due to how thick it is, I’m not sure anymore: Top: Side:
