    What kind of fish mouth plate is this?

    Wading in one of the creeks in my neighborhood provided a few small fossils and I found a interesting looking mouth plate. This is a late Pleistocene area, and in the Tampa member of the Arcadia formation, and the other finds I’m wondering is are these alligator scutes or could I be wrong?
  2. I've been scarce around the forum lately and equally scarce on the river this season. I just haven't had as much time as I would like, but the wife and I finally got out again yesterday for just the second time this season. Headed out to Gardner bright and early and hit got to the ramp about 9am. Hardly anyone was there - when you pull up and see only one vehicle besides your own, then it's going to be a quiet peaceful day on the river. The weather was (is) gorgeous. High around 80, low humidity, lots of sun, and a nice breeze. You cannot ask for better river weather. We got the k

    What type of Shark Tooth?

    Here is a shark tooth I believe I found in peace river (fl) although I don’t really remember. It is about a .8 inch tooth. The reason I’m not sure the type of shark this is is because of its thickness. It reminds me of a bull shark but has an odd shape and is thicker than most teeth I find. Anyone know if this is a bull shark or something else?

    Partial Eagle Ray Dental Plates?

    Hi, I found these 2 unusual little pieces on a Tampa Bay beach in Florida. They are roughly 1 x 1 inches. At first I thought pottery shards or some seashell mold and put them in a box. I just saw a photo that they resemble, labeled Ray Dental plate. (brown photo) I attached 3 photos front and back of my specimen. What do you think?
  5. Hello Fossil Hunters, I haven't been on in awhile and missed the interaction with this group. I recently found an unusual find at a Tampa Bay Beach in Florida. Looking at the shape I immediately thought I had a worn bone fossil vs a seashell cast. The top view of the spur measures 1 3/8" x 1". The base platform which resembles an osteoderm measures 1 1/4"x7/8". I checked my Florida Fossil book and it resembles a Giant Tortoise Leg Spur. What do you think?

    Help me with this jaw

    Can anyone help me identifying this jaw, unfortunately the selle can't send me a photo of the chewing surface. I can't understand if it is a boar jaw or a tapir jaw. I'd like to hear your opinion
  7. I finally booked a tour with Mr. Mazza on the Peace River. I talked my daughter into driving down from NC, and my sister here in Orlando to make the trip with me. Well, we weren’t disappointed in the least. Between my daughter and I, we found slightly over 500 teeth, not sure how many my sister found yet. Besides teeth, I found a few horse teeth and one capybara tooth. here are just a few of the many treasures found.
  8. Hi, I'm new here, looking those with expertise to help identify this, appreciate any help. I found this in the water, about 2 or 3 feet from shore. I think it might be a part of a turtle shell, but it also looks like a sacrum. Any ideas? It's rather heavy for it's appearance.

    Juvenile Mammoth

    Got up early, went out hunting to a favorite location with good friends. I had searched this spot so often that I went in believing that I would have to prospect new locations before today was over. Turned out not to be true. After 5-10 small shark teeth in each of the 1st 2 sieves, this interesting fossil fell into my lap. It is 6.5 inches long and 2.75 inches at its widest point. Going to be a great day. I will make some observations. 1) At 2.75 inches wide, it is far smaller than the width of an adult tooth and must be from a juvenile. 2) It consists of approximat

    North Florida Fun!

    My wife and I returned from a great trip to north Florida about a week and a half ago, but I finally have time to post a trip report now that our Easter visitors (our kids) have left and headed back to their homes. Fair warning, if you are looking for some great tale of finds on the Peace River, this is not the post for you! Probably one of the few posts on the Forum from a trip to Florida that does NOT include the Peace –. This was not solely a fossil trip, but rather a sight-seeing trip with some fossils stops included, I try to include as many stops as possible but it is always a delica

    Large Hoof Core

    I immediately thought toe bone or hoof core, but it did not look like Equus or Antiquus, too big ( 2.5, 2.25, 1.6 inches) to be Camel/Llama or tapir... ). I have looked around the forum and interent. Tapir seems to be closest, but I say that with little confidence.

    Tiny Canine Peace River

    I was out hunting the Peace River yesterday. It was a great day to be there. I did not find a special gem, but did pretty well on small shark teeth. (Some nice upper hemis, a nice Sand Tiger, and even a small Thresher). Additional mammal finds were far and few between. A couple of dolphin verts, a dolphin bulla, horse tooth, ball of a femur. What I am trying to ID is that little canine, dead center bottom in photo above. I am used to putting up photos of canines 1.25 inches and up. I have always made likely incorrect assumptions of what these very small canines come fro
  13. Hello all, Was hoping for some help identifying some recent finds from the Charlie Creek in the Peace River of Florida. I'm still a novice with ID'ing so I was hoping for some guidance as to where I I went right and wrong. I believe they are, in order: a worn cetacean tooth, turtle nuchal scute, a fragment of stingray barb. The last set I am unsure of. Perhaps some bird clavicles? Thanks for any help you can give, Al

    Fossil or rock

    Found this at the Peace river in FL. I am convinced it is a rock while my dad thinks it is a fossil because he has seen it before. I think my old man is crazy. Someone please end this debate with a definite answer haha

    Help With Identification

    These pieces were given to me as a gift because the shark is my favorite animal. I wanted to be sure that's what there are that I have. Any help with identification would be grately appreciated.
  17. Hi guys I won some matrix from a forum auction, thanks @Monica for putting it up so I’ve searched about half of it and this is what I’ve found so far i need to do research on the species found in the creek but I have grouped them vaguely into families 1. Shells, I won’t bother identifying these 2. Fish jaws 3. the best quality ray bars, myliobatis sp. I think 4. Various carcharinus species 5. Various negaprion species 6. Phyllodus species 7. daysatis sp.
  18. I have an upcoming trip around the Point A Dam in Alabama. Is this site still in good shape with the recent weather that's been cranking through the south? If the dam is out, are there any other good sites still in existence in 1-3 hours drive south of Andalusia? I've read about a lot of northern panhandle sites in Florida but wondered if they're still in existence or have been wrecked with Hurricane Michael. Also, I work mostly dry sites in the Paleozoic of West Virginia. Is this a site where muck boots are warranted? If so, are mid calf height enough or better to have waders that
  19. Hello everyone, can you help me identifying this mandible fragment, I'm unsure of what it can be, maybe Raccoon or a mustelid. I'm sure some Florida expert can determine much better than me what this can be
  20. Today I stopped at home to grab something for work and I found a box waiting for me. It was a box that contained the winnings of the recent auction that John @Sacha put up to benefit the forum. I absolutely love everything that was included in this package. John has gotten me into a love of echinoids and Florida coral. I even have gone through my collection of Fossils and picked out all of the other echinoids that I have acquired over the years, and now I’m going to place them all into one area. The fossils that I received from John will always remain in my collection, and I was

    Bison Antiquus Upper Left Molar

    Went hunting with my Son. That in itself made it a great day. We have grown closer as we age and the separation over the last year has only made our time together more enjoyable. For most of the day, we had the numerous and excellent finds that the Peace River hunts famous. Things picked up in the last hour. Large Tooth: Clearly an upper, could be M1, or M2 or M3. The table below has measurements for a M1 and M2, but not M3. This find 35.1 mm, 22.6 mm, and 67.1 mm respectively, so I thought "maybe" the M2. I also found this photo on the Internet: Th

    Half_Echinoid Silicified

    So I am hunting the Peace River and finding good stuff, like mastodon verts, horse teeth, colorful hemis and into my sieve pops a broken sand dollar...... and I do a little dance , got a smile ear to ear , because I am hoping , with a little help from my friends that this this Echinoid will help to identify the formation I am hunting, maybe Pliocene or middle Miocene. There are a lot of years between them. @Harry Pristis indicated that the silicified shells might more likely imply middle Miocene. The echinoid has an interesting shape and no holes.... I think it is possible.... @C
