  1. I recently got a fossil bear canine from a short faced bear. It was found in the Joshua creek. Now Arctodus pristinus and Tremarctos floridanus canines are very similar. I know that Arctodus is an early Pleistocene species while Tremarctos is a middle late Pleistocene. Is it possible to know the age of land fossils from Joshua creek?
  2. Here is a photo heavy and (for me) text light posting showing the sequence of Tammy and I finding a partial softshell turtle (Apalone sp.) carapace in the field at Montbrook (which was jacketed and removed on the last day of the spring digging season). I pulled the jacked and prepped the carapace over the course of a few months. The jacket was made in the field on 5-May-2021 and I retrieved the jacket (#573) from the storage area on 10-Jun-2021 and completed the prep today 23-Sep-2021. Lots of excavation into the jacket and cleaning and re-attaching parts. The pectoral girdle (scapula and coro

    Bunch of Peace River bones

    Hello, I’ve got a good lot of Peace River fossils from Florida that I bought in bulk and unidentified. A few of the pieces I could figure out on my own, but on most of them I’m clueless. I recognize that most of these may not be totally identifiable, but if you recognize something here your help would be appreciated. Below I will post pictures in separate replies. Feel free to ask for more angles/closer photos of any pieces that you might be able to help me with. Thanks in advance!

    Any ideas on what this is

    I found this while looking through my driveway rocks cause my kids were finding quartz crystals, then I found this. Any ideas?

    Quality time

    My son currently lives in Dallas. For the last 10 days, he was visiting the East Coast of Florida, and yesterday we got together for a Bone Valley hunting trip. During these stressful times, getting together with family is a luxury to be enjoyed. We were together in the sunshine, checking our sieves within 10 feet of each other, talking about family, events from long ago, and events coming up. Talking about fossils and finds. You can see by the gray in his beard that the 2 of us have been doing this for a good long time. It was about 95 degrees but when you are standing in water, it is easy

    Small peace river tooth

    Found in peace river, New to sharks teeth. Anyone know what this is? My guess is carcharinus.

    Rodent or Fish?

    Hello everyone. This little guy was found in some landscape rocks around a pool in Cocoa Beach Florida on September 1, 2021. Any ideas or information would be appreciated. I can take more/better pictures if needed. My kids and I are just getting into rock hounding and have good luck searching rock islands in parking lots and around buildings. We have found a lot of nice horn corals and Petoskey stones as well as a few cool agates and even a geode. So naturally we searched the pool surround while we were on vacation. This little guy was in with a mix of marble and sea shells.

    Vertebrate Report Form (Florida)

    Good day all! Curious if we, Florida permit holders, are required to use this form or can create our own with the required information via excel? It would make life a whole lot easier if I could do it in a spreadsheet. If anyone has any insight it would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

    Possible Coral...need help.

    Howdy all. First post but long time lurker. Need a little help with an ID. The fossil was found in Central Florida while sifting for shark teeth. The river has exposures from the Miocene epoch, at times I think older, and have found all manners of shark teeth with occasional mammal and reptile fossils showing up (deer teeth, snake ribs, alligator teeth and others). However, this little sucker stumps me. A small part of me believes it is a type of coral, but I am literally lost on where to begin with its identification. For orientation I call the "bumpy" side the top and the "ring"
  10. There is a spot in the Peace, not far upstream of the Canoe Outpost, that yields relatively large quantities of the sand dollar shown in the photo below. I have these 2 relatively good examples and 3 more partials stuck together in a block. All are of nearly identical size. I had assumed Miocene based on the source, but the the publication from UF on "Pliocene and Pleistocene Echinoids" has the only sand dollars coming close. The closest matching in shape is Encope michelini, but the sample is twice the size of my examples. Anyone have experience with these?

    What type of tooth?

    I found this tooth wile hunting for sharks teeth. Im not even sure if this is a fossil to be honest, it could be modern. Anyone know what it is?

    Big Peace River Bone id help

    Hi guys! I recently acquired this beauty from someone who had absolutely no idea what it was (he knew it was fossil mammal bone from the Pleistocene but that's it). It's from Peace River in Florida. measures about 9 x 4 x 4 inches. My best guess is giant ground sloth tibia, but I don't know for sure and would really appreciate a second opinion before I label it something that awesome. Thanks! Jacob

    I have been sampling areas that I thought might have low enough water depths. It is also my exercise. I kayak against the current, go swimming along the way, pack a picnic lunch, enjoy the wildlife and scenery. Out side of small broken teeth, unrecognizable bone fragments , I found 3 fossils. A very nice Tiger shark tooth. Is this a scapula ? It is in fantastic shape, so might be modern. Can someone ID the mammal? And another bone. I do not think I have seen the like before... leaning toward turtle, gator, marine .. it seems to be mostly unbroken, wit

    More fossils I found 2 days ago

    Hi, If anyone knows if these are anything I appreciate it. We went to Ruck's pit FL for calcite crystal clams and dug these too... I hope the pics are good, I forgot use a different color background.
  15. My friend gave me these tooth. The information that I got is they are from Pleistocene of Florida. But not ID for the species. I just wonder are these belong to beaver, giant beaver or giant capybara because all of them have fossil in Florida land. thank for reading!

    3 IDs

    Lovely day, good friend, interesting finds. 1st of three. A small tooth. To me, this has the shape of marine mammal or alligator, more likely first based on enamel. No horizontal banding means not whale, but could be dolphin. However a very odd root core. 2nd up is an enamel cap. In mammal tooth development, the enamel forms first, followed by the root. In the event of death, the root is never added. These are rare. Possibly based on cap ridges, a slight preference for Hemiauchenia macrocephalus or Hemiauchenia gracilis. Comments appreciated.
  17. Here are photos of my fossil finds from the now-closed Caloosa Shell pit in Ruskin, Florida. These were found over a period of years from around 1997 til 1999. Distal end of a Bobcat humerus Gator vertebrae Horse teeth (The largest tooth was not found by me. It was given to me by our guide, Mr. Frank Garcia, on a day at the mine when I pretty much found NOTHING but some scrappy bits of softshell turtle shell.) Giant ground sloth claw tip Giant armadillo armor plate

    Florida Pleistocene ID’s

    Hey all! I have some peace river mammal teeth I’m looking for help with. I’m hoping someone more knowledgeable than myself can find something with these teeth. I know a couple aren’t great but hoping for the best! Thanks all! 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) The root on this one is super cool, seems like a wide root!
  19. I'm putting out an open call for any collectors who have any reasonably complete tortoise or turtle material from the Peace River (or its tributaries) or even possibly Bone Valley material from the quarries in the area. I'm working with Jason Bourque in the fossil prep lab on the campus of UF here in Gainesville (presently working on an 18 Ma gator skull from the Thomas Farm site). Jason is reassembling some turtle specimens that had been collected in Florida that have been languishing in the collection for decades. He's presently reassembling a giant tortoise plastron collected in the 1980s.

    Is this a Shark vertebra?

    I am looking for help identifying this fossil bone. I found it on the beach and was fascinated by the shape and look of it.
  21. Found this tooth yesterday in the peace river area in Wachula, Fl. Have been trying to find out what it is since. All that I’ve got so far is that it’s a premolar from a carnivore. Would love some help from you all! There are 3 root prongs (hard to tell from the 2 images, I can post more if necessary).

    Can I have some help please

    Hi everyone, I have these shark teeth that are between 1/2 in long and 3/4 in long All I'm told it's they are from Sarasota county in Florida. Can anyone tell me a likey species please? Are they Carcharinus sp thank you
  23. I have a modest collection of shark tooth fossils, some of these have been in my possession since I was a child and I can't remember how I got them. I didn't even think much about them until recently. I believe all of them came from Venice beach in Florida. Some I personally found at my last trip to Venice beach around ten years ago, some were given to me by my aunt when I was young, she frequented Venice beach and knew I loved (still do) sharks. It's possible that some of them were purchased from tourist shops along the Florida shore or even aquarium gift shops. I sorted them to t

    EQUUS Identifications

    I was out hunting yesterday. One of my frequent finds in the Peace River is horse teeth , usually Equus .sp. I found one yesterday. Typical Equus upper molar. EquusExample#1 I am very interested in horse fossil teeth but have focused on pre-Equus. To tell the truth I just do not know a lot or can tell differences between Equus variations like Equus Simplicidens or Equus Complicatus, etc but I am about to learn!! My education should focus on Florida because that is what I tend to find, but I am interested in but I am interested in any publications that can effectively differentiate
