    Venice Shark Tooth Festival

    Are there confirmed plans for a Venice Shark Tooth Festival this year (2022)? Will the dates be April 8-10 as speculated online? Can anyone confirm the online speculation that the location will be 610 Airport Ave E, Venice, FL 34285

    Distinctive bone

    I try to get my fossil friends to join TFF, but still have a few who want my help in gettng odd finds here. All I have in the photos. Found in Gulf of Mexico while hunting Megs. @Boesse Maybe a process of a Baleen whale earbone. The grooved side seems possible, but the other side reminds me of jaw. The Gulf collects both marine and land animal fossils, just a lot more marine naturally.

    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

    Jaw w/o teeth

    With a little time, I am sorting November fossils. I found this jaw segment back in November. Seems like 3 of 4 teeth are snapped off at the root line. When I found it, I thought it might be alligator (short , round alveoli) but now I lean to dolphin. I am interested in whether any members who have seen broken dolphin teeth and jaw fossils in the Mid_atlantic coast recognize similarities. Thanks for looking. A while back, found another small jaw at this site, turned out to be dolphin. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/115727-new-for-me/ Also just shari

    New at this. Need help with ID.

    Found in Brevard County FL. Very new to this. Don't exactly understand how to do this proper. Any insight appreciated. Thanks.

    A toe bone with matrix

    I had a good day and then in the last 30 minutes found a bone that I did not recognize. That makes it a great day. I do recognize this as a toe bone. and it is very likely to be a medial phalanx of an artiodactyl. BUT... At slightly less than 36 mm long, it is very unusual. The 1st photo was staring at me out of the sieve, and I was pretty positive that I had not seen the like previously. In searching for a Medial Phalanx, I found this one in @Foshunter Gallary Very similar but too big... I am looking for 1.5 inch ,not 2.5 inch in length. B

    Fossil Shark Tooth

    Can you guys help me identify this tooth. I originally thought it was a Meg, but someone I showed it to thought it might be something else because of its slight curve. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Fossilized tooth. Peace River, Florida

    I found this tooth in the Peace River, Florida. I haven't been able to identify it. Any ideas? Thanks!
  9. I need help identifying this jaw bone with teeth. I only have the one picture but the molars are pretty distinctive and hopefully are enough. This was found in the Peace River, Florida. Thanks for any help!

    Mystery osteoderm

    At first I thought this was a neural bone from a turtle but now I'm wondering if it might be a mammalian osteoderm (3cm long x 1cm thick). From a north Florida river. - Zach

    Pampathere osteoderm?

    I believe this is a Holmesina osteoderm (my first), but please correct me if you think otherwise. From a north Florida river. Thanks! -Zach

    bone or petrified wood?

    Greetings from Central Florida, friends. I found this piece today and I assumed it was bone because I find so many smaller, similar looking pieces of bone at this spot. On closer examination, one side seems to be cut pretty neatly. Can anyone positively identify this as bone or wood? If wood, is it palm? Thanks for reading!

    Black and white striped fossil

    Greetings friends! Would anyone like to weigh in on what this fossil that was found on Caspersen Beach is? A bit about where it was found, Caspersen is North of Punta Gorda and south of Sarasota. The Peace River runs into the Gulf of Mexico just a bit south of Caspersen and Englewood, and the fossils wash up on the beach from a bed near the shoreline. Any ideas on what causes the striping? I haven’t seen any like this. Apologies for all the hand photos. My lighting is meh, and it’s hard to avoid throwing shadows on the desk.

    A very different bone

    Cool in the morning, but the sun was out and by noon just fabulous. When I picked this up, I did not recognize it as anything I had previously seen, and I have seen a lot of fossil bones. For a second, I was unsure that it was bone, but now I am pretty positive. Going hunting in the morning, so will be unable to read comments and suggestions until Sunday evening. Thanks for looking, Jack

    Cranial appendage?

    Hi all, I found this horn-like fossil in a north Florida river recently. It seems fairly light and porous (not like an antler). It reminds me of some of the cranial appendages of tylopods that I'm reading about, but it's probably something less exciting. I appreciate the help!

    Giant tortoise hyoplastron?

    From a north Florida river, about half an inch thick. Based on the lines from the scute margins that are visible I'm guessing this is a partial Hesperotestudo hyoplastron? -Zach

    Various teeth from north Florida river

    Hi all, I have some teeth from a recent fossil hunting trip in north Florida and was hoping some of you with more experience might be able to help with identification. A couple look like they are from a mammalian herbivore of some kind (ungulate?), another appears to be from a carnivore, perhaps a canid? It looks like part is broken off and I wonder if it might have once had a second root. I have a small shark tooth, which looks similar to photos of lemon shark teeth. Finally, several crocodilian teeth. I don't know if there is a way to distinguish Alligator mississippiensis teeth from other e

    Miami Beach Fossil ID

    Hello and Happy New Year from Miami! I found an interesting rock on the beach a little while back and I can't seem to determine what it is. Since it was found at Miami Beach, it should be Pleistocene Miami Limestone. The specimen is about 3 inches in length. It looks quite similar to an image I found online of a seal humerus: Thank you :)

    Can anyone ID this?

    My 13 year old son found this at the beach in Destin, FL. It reminds me of a tooth, but it's not pointed. Any ideas of what this is?
  21. Mmmm...mmmm, One of my favorites. Only the 3rd complete one I have ever found and in pristine condition!! I also found some very nice shark teeth but this was the highlight of the trip.
  22. Was down in FL last week visiting family for a few days. Got to check out Caspersen Beach for a few hours. Found a bunch of teeth but found what i think may be a whale tooth? Can anyone help ID?

    Very odd whale tooth

    We have company coming and I am forced !!!! to clean up a room full of bags full of fossils. The reckoning has arrived. It is slow because I slow down for interesting fossils. Over the summer, I obtained about 10 badly beaten whale teeth from the phosphate mines in Bone Valley. I did not think they would be worth the $25 I paid but the selleris a friend. In checking out that bag , I discovered a very odd tooth. I had another whale tooth about the same length (57 mm): Has anyone seen this type of whale tooth variation? Is it pathological? Thanks for
  24. Let me know what you guys think!! I would love to get an idea of the time period and what shark it came from! Thanks in advance!

    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!
