    Shark Teeth - new to IDing

    Hello - any help identifying would be greatly appreciated - I am new to identifying and trying to improve. They were found at Caspersen Beach in Florida USA
  5. @fossillarry, sorry to do this to you, again. Picked up a bunch of 3-toed teeth for cheap today from the Tampa Bay Fossil fest, and most need an ID. #7 and #10 are from Polk County phosphate mines, and #8 is from Bone Valley (Courtesy of @Family Fun who gave it to me). #11 is from the Peace. The rest I’ve got no clue on. @Shellseeker I know you like 3-toed teeth - I think you’ll enjoy seeing #10. All measurements are in mm, and are width by height of the occlusal surface: 1) 14x12 - C. ingenuum? 2) 15x13 3) 21.5x20.5

    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

    I have not been out hunting enough, which has me looking at old TFF threads. I posted this canine 5 years ago in FosslID , but did not get much feedback and it faded without me learning much about it. Originally, I thought Alligator, because of the hollow root. but it did not have a horizontal edge between enamel and root, and the root was not an oval shape. Then I considered Dire wolf, because of the shape of the enamel, and the shaped carina down the side. I wondered at that time if the tooth was unerupted. I have never found/identified a Dire Wolf fossil from this site

    Bear or Dire Wolf canine?

    So I came across this canine on the internet. And in the comments it was being debated by the seller as a Dire Wolf canine, but multiple reactions said it's a bear canine. So I thought it might be interesting to post it here and know what it actually is. Florida find, 2'28 inch
  9. Hello everyone, I just came back from a short trip to Florida to visit some relatives who recently moved out there. I knew very little about fossil hunting in Florida but with the generous help of a number of forum members got to learn a lot. On one of the days while visiting, we decided to visit Venice. While there I did end up picking up some tiny shark and ray teeth, interesting modern shells but nothing particularly special, once we got off the beach, though, I noticed a pile of shell material in sandy matrix near the parking lot I initially thought it was just the same modern st

    Peace River New Guy

    These were found on my property on the river just south of Arcadia. I have absolutely no clue what these are. Everything else I was able to identify. The smaller tooth I found is the first one I've found that is that curved. The larger tooth is unique to me because of the fact that it is concave, which I tried to show in the pictures. Finally the mammal tooth I have had trouble figuring out. Maybe baby mammoth? Thanks in advance guys!
  11. Hello everyone! I will be traveling down to St. Petersburg to visit some close friends, but I'm going to take a day to get wet and maybe find some cool fossils. I've been desperately wanting to look in the Peace River. I plan on renting a kayak/canoe and spending a day on the water. I'm a member of the Alabama Paleontological Society so I have a little experience/knowledge of what I need to be to looking for. Would anyone be willing/able to message me and show/tell me some good areas to possible start looking? I think I wanna focus my choices in the Wauchula/Arcadia areas. Thank you for any h

    Can Someone ID This Petrosal?

    Here's a land mammal petrosal that I've just retrieved from storage. It's from the Santa Fe River, so it's Pliocene or later. It appears to be complete. These petrosals all look about the same to me. Help me out here.

    Llama Camelid Earbones

    As some note, I am trying to identify mammal ear bones found in SW Florida (and hopefully other Southeast US locations. In this case, Camelids. Hopefully with assistance from @Plantguy and @Harry Pristis I found this single photo on Worthpoint, probably put there by Nate. identified as Hemiauchenia. On August 23rd, 2009 while searching at Quality Aggregate Pit in North Fort Myers, I found this land find. It's length is quite large just under 3 inches. I have come to believe that it comes from either Hemiauchenia or Mirifica, the 2 fossil camelids in the Florida

    Florida Trip 18th-26th

    Hello all, my name is Jonah. For Spring break I am going to be near Venice, Florida for a little over a week. I'm posting this to see if anyone would like to hunt fossils in the Arcadia area, or Venice/Caspersan. I have experience in the Peace River and diving Venice. If anyone would like to perhaps join or trade information please pm me. I may be stopping in the panhandle to visit an old friend and hunt there as well. So I'll be equipped with gear for both consolidated and non materials. Perhaps meeting a stranger to share a mutual interest is strange, but heck the hard

    A day in the Sunshine

    I went fossil hunting yesterday. It is an activity that brings a smile and renews my soul. Sometimes I like the solitude of hunting alone ( my 1st 18 months I only hunted alone), but this day I was blessed with good friends and I could tell stories, share their cut up fruit and trail mix, and marvel on what we were finding. These are mostly my treasures.. None of us found large quantities, I had less than 50 fossils in my collection bag... but what we did find was unique and/or had some quality aspects... A tiger , 32 mm across the root. A Dusky or Bull, never

    Juvenile Mastodon Partial Tooth

    I bought this tooth fragment last year. It was advertised as a partial juvenile mastodon tooth, but I honestly have no idea if that's correct. I hardly spent anything on it so it's not a huge deal if it's something else entirely. Thoughts?

    ID help, please and thanks!

    Almost everything was found yesterday at Peace River (FL). I’m still new to fossil hunting. I do my research but still need help - there’s a lot to learn. TIA for anyone who takes the time to let me know what I’ve got here! In order, I think I have: -Deer ankle bone -Scapula? Turtle shell? -Glyptodont scutes -Horse/camel incisor? -Manatee/dugong tooth? -Shells (I know nothing about these but love these two-wanted to share) -Gator/plan

    Is this an Auriculatus?

    The seller states that this is a ~13 mm posterior O. auriculatus tooth from Bone Valley. It looks similar to the lower posteriors in this paper, but I would like to get a more educated opinion before adding it to my collection. Unfortunately, these are the highest quality images given.

    Wood? Venice beach find

    Hi guys, found a big hunk of fossil something this morning on the beach. Flat on one side, porous on the other, eight inch fragment of something. Is it wood, turtle shell, a weird rock? Tried to get some good images of the texture of the flat side. I imagine the textures are totally recognizable to someone in the know.
  24. Looks can be deceiving. Is this a chunk of sloth tooth? Looks similar to my other chunk but not quite the same. Found in Peace River (FL). TIA!
  25. Good day on Peace River yesterday…did I find what I think I found? I’m sure I did, but I’ve also been sure before thanks in advance!
