  1. Hello all. I've tried and tried to get the ID on this on my own and just don't have the experience. I dug this out of a gravel layer in the Peace River in Hardee County, Florida two weeks ago (early January, 2023). Some of the contours seem like an astragalus (horse, camel, ...) but the more museum photos I see the less sure I am. Thanks in advance for any information you are willing to share. The pics are a little overexposed (intentionally) to show the shape, so the color appears lighter in the pics than in reality. Thanks!
  2. beachcomber

    Another first unknown find.

    Help with id once again. Found another oddity (for me anyway). Appears to show some symmetry although somewhat worn. Thanks in advance.

    Not familiar beach find

    Not quite sure what to make of this. Doesn’t look like anything I’m familiar with. Any help greatly appreciated. Found on Caspersen Beach, Florida.

    camel cervical vertebra

    From the album: BONES

    This is a cervical (neck) vertebra - a C3 or C4 - from a Pleistocene camelid from Gilchrist County, Florida. The species name is uncertain, but lamine (llamas) camels were the dominant species in the Florida Pleistocene. More images at: http://www.thefossil...be/#entry599855

    Maybe a hoof core?

    Another beach fossil find. I’m not to sure but thought it might be a worn hoof core. Maybe camelid? I defer to the forum experts. As usual any help is greatly appreciated.

    What is this??

    I found this on a recent trip to the Peace River here in Florida. I'm trying desperately to identify it. Is this a piece of petrified wood? I haven't read anywhere online that petrified wood has been found anywhere in Florida so I'm kinda stumped.

    Unidentified molar

    Help With a Whale Fossil

    I don't know much about whale fossils . . . Can I get some help? This appears to be an auditory bulla which seems unlike the larger specimens from baleen whales. I think it may be a damaged bulla from Pomatodelphis. Any thoughts? In the one view, I've marked with a yellow ''x" two pholadid clam borings so that they don't distract. That same view seems to show an area of shear which represents a missing process.
  14. I got out for a very short fossil hunting trip for Pleistocene fossils a couple days ago and recorded the hunt. I labeled everything I found as I found it to help others know what is being found, and went over what everything was at the end. Check it out if you get time:
  15. By the title your probably skeptical about me actually finding a fossil in my backyard of course I didn't actually find a real fossil in my backyard as that would be quite fictional. I thought I would say that before beginning the fossil ID help... Because in reality I found 2 fossils in my backyard not one!!! In the lot beside my house is dense forest I live in Florida with very invertebrate rich soil in fact almost all soil in my area (suburbs near Indian river) contains hundreds of small shells Pleistocene to recent. However last year when I was looking for modern ani

    camel fibula

    From the album: BONES

    A lamine (llamas) camelid fibula from the Bone Valley gravels, Peace River, Hardee County, Florida.

  17. Was wondering if someone could help me correctly identify this fossil. This was found on a beach in Destin, FL this summer and appears to be maybe an eel or serpent like creature, it measures ~2 5/8" long and ~1" wide and tried to picture best I could. Any help would be appreciated and can send more pictures but could only post one due to size constraints. Thank you very much for your time!

    dugong & manatee teeth

    From the album: TEETH & JAWS

    This one is the smallest dugong tooth in my drawer; most are substantially larger. Manatee teeth are not rare among Florida fossils. Dugong teeth are not common. (This image is best viewed by clicking on the button on the upper right of this page => "other sizes" => "large".)

    Eagle Ray Toothplate

    From the album: TEETH & JAWS

    This is an eagle ray toothplate from the Suwannee River. Most often, these toothplates are disarticulated into single teeth. Note the wear on the occlusal surface, probably from crushing hard-shelled food items. Family MYLIOBATIDAE Subfamily MYLIOBATINAE Myliobatis sp. Late Oligocene Suwannee Limestone Suwannee County, Florida (This image is best viewed by clicking on the button on the upper right of this page => "other sizes" => "large".)

    Tooth Cross-Section

    I've come close to putting this giant armadillo jaw into my scraps box each time I looked at it in the past. It's too good to throw out, yet it doesn't have much collector appeal. This morning it occurred to me (whence come these inspirations?) that this jaw is unique in one way: It reveals the cross-section of a tooth (second from the last tooth) in the mandible. Ho-hum you say. Well, armadillos like all xenarthrans have hypselodont teeth; they are peglike, open-rooted, and continuously growing. In cross section they don't look like horse or bison or dire wolf teeth. Lacking
