    ID/info please!

    I thought it was a pen cap when I saw it found at peace river. I know it’s a vert, but could you please help me learn which animal it came from? The condition is the best I’ve seen.
  2. Amarykah

    ID assistance, please and thanks!

    Found in Peace River. Stumped again.

    Need help with peace river IDs

    Some fossils found at the peace river last weekend. I am wondering if 1 is a giant tortoise spur and if 2 is part of a giant tortoise shell. in the second picture my best guesses are: 3. vertebrae, 4. crocodilians tooth, 5. stingray part?, 6. maybe a fish scale, 7. originally just thought was a weird bone fragment but maybe a tooth
  4. Amarykah


    This may be wishful thinking, but is this a chunk of sloth tooth? TIA!
  5. Amarykah

    Anything special?

    Is there anything special about either of these two teeth? They seem different - thought they might have deformities. Peace river, FL. Mako and ?? Thanks!
  6. Amarykah


    Found at peace river (FL). It’s ivory but not like the mammoth or mastodon ivory I’ve seen. My novice research says it’s WALRUS?! Looking for those who know to confirm/deny/educate “coo coo cachoo!” (Beatles pun for those who didn’t catch it). It also dried incredibly quickly when I put water on it - vid is for fun because it kinda blew my mind. Thanks!

    Two possible fossils

    Hello, I found what I think may be two fossils but I’m not totally sure. I’m really not terribly knowledgeable with all this. The first appears to be a bivalve impression fossil with at least 3 different shell imprints in the sample. I found this rock washed up on the beach at Amelia Island Florida (Atlantic side). It has several nice impressions in it. Is this a legit fossil or do you think something like concrete amalgamation? I don’t know… it just seemed really easy to find. If legit, any guess as to it’s age? The second sample was also found washed up on the beach at Am

    ID if possible (Ivory?)

    Found in the Peace River, FL. Arcadia area. I wasn't too excited about it but a man who was fossiling nearby wanted to see what I had found when I was leaving the spot and he said it was mammoth ivory. I do not think it is and told him that I didn't think so but he insisted quite enthusiastically. I am still learning and am a beginner so I told him he may be right and moved on with my day. But now I cant stop thinking about it haha, if that man is in here, I swear if you were trying me! The texture is hard and sounds quite like ceramic when tapped or dropped. It kind o
  9. With the Peace River water depth coming down, and easing on the cooler temperatures. I was out hunting Wednesday, Friday, Sunday... basically checking various locations. It was a little cool, so I wore a 5 mm wetsuit. There were numerous places waist deep with some gravel.. A newer layer had moved in with small colored teeth, but almost everything we found were marine fossils and not very numerous. But there are always some interesting finds. A few were larger, some even complete There were a couple of types of urchin spines , one much more common

    Possible Meg teeth?

    I found these two teeth in Florida. They look like they could be Megalodon, but I’m having trouble identifying them. What are your thoughts??
  11. Scapula from Peace River Florida. Recent find that I just finished putting together. I've been through flmnh website, books, Internet, etc. can't find anything like it. Looking for help on id. Was thinking sloth until I started the assembly process. Thanks
  12. @digit Soft shelled turtle Apalone sp. Pleistocene Peace River Arcadia, Fl Florida Museum of Natural History, University of Florida Days after Ken @digit posted a notice about FLMNH looking for Florida turtle/tort specimens, I found this it was meant to be donated. I have never seen a turtle anywhere near complete come out of the Peace. On top of that there is enough to identify it as female!

    Tympanic Bulla

    I was out today with @DirtyHippie. We have a great time and I came home with a Dolphin earbone and a pretty upper Hemi. I thought the earbone was Pomatodelphis inaequalis, from Hulbert's book. But, in close comparisons, I am not so sure. What do others think? @Boesse Here is a bulla that I had found in the Peace River that I thought was from Pomatodelphis inaequalis for comparisons.

    Peace River miscellaneous

    Hello everyone, I have a few mystery items from the Peace River that I’ve found in recent weeks. Any help would be much appreciated!Fossil 1: tooth missing enamel? My thoughts were crocodile or porpoise Item 2: some sort of claw but I’m unsure what kind Item 3: Camel canine? item 4: some sort of vertebra Help is very much appreciated, thank you very much!
  15. Hello! I have a question, I have become very interested in the Lower Pleistocene site of Leisey Shell Pit in Florida. I have read that a few species of sharks, bony fish and even rays are present there. Does anyone in the forum actually have any of these in their collections? If so be sure to post them as I have never seen any! Cheers. Adriano.
  16. Hey everyone! Found this astragalus this past weekend. Not sure if it’s deer or peccary, or if it’s too worn to tell for sure. Measures 38mmx19mm @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker
  17. Found land site. Wondering if it's possible to tell the species of whale? Thanks!

    Interesting unknowns

    I went out hunting today, needed the exercise. Predicted afternoon showers, but warm and sunny all morning. I was doing pretty well, constant finds of Bull, Dusky, Tiger shark teeth, mixed with Osteoderms from Alligator, Armadillo, Glyptodon. About 1:30, getting ready to kayak back to my truck in order to beat the rains, I saw something that I did not recognize in the sieve. xx I turned it over and over trying to figure out what it might be... When I saw this next edge, I thought I knew... But maybe I was incorrect. What do you think it is...

    Peace River again

    Hunting yesterday, found an area of slightly larger teeth....It is not often that one location can yield Hemipristis, Mako, Megalodon and Great White. In the Peace River, GWs are really difficult to find and I am not positive about this one. Is this a GW or a Meg...? It sort of depends on whether you see a bourlette (or not) and how you see the symmetry of the serrations. There were a variety of Tiger (Aduncus, Contortous, Mayumbensis, and Cuvier), but no sand tigers.. Lots of Hemipristis and larger Lemons Also a camel_llama tooth...so
  20. Found this today - recognized it as an astragalus pretty quickly but couldn’t pinpoint what. I’ve narrowed it down to either Probiscidean or Sloth. It’s 3.2 inches/82mm in length. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker either of you able to discern?

    The Return to the Peace

    So doing a culmination of my last couple trips out - and the fossil gods were benevolent these past trips! Found my first and second bison teeth, a rhino astragalus, a decently sized, very pretty Meg, and a bunch of other things! So without further ado: Starting off with the shark’s teeth - 2.3” Meg, tiny little posterior Meg, and a pathological Carcharhinus tooth: The bison teeth - both 4th premolars, but one is an upper (left), and one is a lower (right): The rhino astragalus: 2 Horse teeth, tapir tooth crown, rodent inc

    Glyptodon Astragalus

    Identified by Richard Hulbert as a Glyptodon Astragalus. One of two, to his knowledge, that were found as of the time of collection of this specimen. Notable features include a shape comparable to the astragalus of the Giant Armadillo - Holmesina, with overall larger features to account for the greater size in G. floridanum. Reference: Simpson, George Gaylord. (1929). Pleistocene mammalian fauna of the Seminole Field, Pinellas County, Florida. Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History 56: 561-599.

    Found this today at Amelia island to me it looks like a small mammal incisor, any thoughts? Thanks!
  24. Today I went to a nearby creek in north Florida and came across these fossils that I need help identifying. 1. Definitely posterior. Maybe bull, lemon, or hammerhead? 2. I don't know if I've seen this before, at first I thought small hastalis, but then I noticed what appears to be a cusp on the left side. (it's just on the tape measure so you can see the cusp better.)3. Turtle, but I was wondering with the odd shape if it was possible to tell where from.Thanks!
