    Alright boys. What have we got here?

    Found this fossil hunting in the PR but it may be a roof of a mouth?
  2. Ethanwelford

    What is this?

    I found this in a creek off the peace river outside fort Meade. Would love some input from professionals because this was our(my wife and I ) very first fossil hunt inspired by Cris! IMG_2809.MOV

    ID please

    We need your help. My husband and I went out to look for shark teeth in the bitter cold and came across this today (December 24th) Can anyone help identify? My limited vet tech knowledge I believe it's a piece of vertebrae. Location- Venice Beach, Florida

    What is it...Fish Bone, Fish Spike?

    Hi All, Found this odd bone at Honeymoon Beach, Florida. Looks like some sort of fish bone. Ruler is in inches. Any idea? Thanks for looking.

    Strange Florida Beach Find--Need I.D.

    These are 2 unusual beach finds found on different visits at the same Tampa Bay beach, Florida. Approx. sizes 1 1/2-1 3/4 x 3/8 inch and about 1/16 inch thick. They look like brown wood grain with fine grooves on one side and shiny enamel-like on the flip side. They are slightly curved. Initially I thought it was a stingray barb but it has no barbs. Than I thought a seashell fragment but it doesn't resemble any seashell I'm familiar with. So what are they?

    A tusk

    On May 12th, 2020 I found this fossil in a Florida location that predominately has produce Miocene era fauna. On the same day, I found other fossils that grabbed my attention and my postings to the forum were mostly about the other items found that day. I am posting this today for a couple of reasons: 1) I would like my own identification confirmed, 2) I would seek other similar finds from other forum members. and most important, 3) I would like a record in TFF of the photos and find , so that I can more effectively retrieve it for myself and link other members to it.

    Venice Beach Tooth ID

    Could this be a small megladon tooth? Found at Venice Beach, Florida. Attached are photos front and back of tooth.
  8. So I was recently looking at Canid detention cause of the dire wolf tooth I found this past weekend - and stumbled across pictures of upper Dire Wolf M2s, and thought they looked familiar. A while ago, back in August, I found this tooth that I sent to Hulbert for an ID. He said it was an Otter M1. However, while it looks quite similar to an Otter M1, it also seems to match a Dire Wolf M2, possibly even more closely. So first here’s the tooth - it’s 14.2mm long: The size fits both Enhydritherium terraenovae (Which is the Otter) M1s: An

    Hi! Anyone know what this is?

    Collected at Dunedin causeway in Florida. I thought possible echinoid. If not, I’m cutting it open to look inside. Thanks!
  10. Largemouth Bass


    From Bowling Green, FL. Each fossil is about 1 cm across.
  11. So it’s been a while since I’ve made a trip report! Been out plenty, just never sat down to make one, and by the time I was ready, I had already sorted away the finds. Decided to keep out my best finds from my last 2 trips, so… The first trip I had gone out looking for new spots. Found one, but hadn’t spent a ton of time there before I had to leave. The hour or two I did spend there resulted in a Holmesina claw, N. Aztecus p2, a partial posterior Meg, and a canid jaw, which while matching coyote, is heavily fossilized and could be any number of similarly sized canids, especially gi

    Peace River Vertebrae

    So yesterday I also found this vert. Wanted to wait till it was dry to take pics. I know it’s mammalian, and I think it’s lumbar? But not sure on the type of vert or from what animal. The centrum is 2.45 inches/61mm long, and 1.87 inches/47.6mm wide. Whole thing, although broken on top, is 2.3 inches/58.5mm tall. @Brandy Cole @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker
  13. Hey everyone! Found a dire wolf premolar today. I know it’s a 2nd premolar, but I’m not sure if it’s upper or lower. It’s 0.6”/ 15mm in length. @Shellseeker do you happen to know?

    Venice FL meg hunting

    Had a great time diving this weekend in Venice FL for shark teeth! Wondering if anyone here has dove the “meg ledge” in SC & if you think it’s worth it? I see a lot of teeth come out of that area pretty worn down.

    Collection of Florida Pliocene Shells

    Anybody have any idea of the genus or species?
  16. Found these three on a beach in Venice Florida. They are small so not sure if they are horse, three toed or another mammal. Any ideas? Thanks

    Florida beach bone

    Does anyone have any idea what kind of bone this is? I’m an absolute novice but I am always finding bones on the beach and need your help to identify this one. Regards Christine
  18. Out on the river today and have 2 finds I’d love ID’d! So the first - this one for @fossillarry per your request, another 3-toed! This one is very worn, but you can still see the enamel bands. Its crown length is 20mm, crown height is about 10mm. Second one. I know this is a claw core but I’m not sure if it’s Holmesina or Glyptodont. So @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis can either of you ID it? Thanks in advance!

    A day in the Sunshine

    Yesterday, I returned to a hunting location that I had not been in a couple years. It is difficult to get to... lack of paved road and miles of kayaking, I always have great anticipation, and I did find lots of fossils, lot of bones, some teeth, but curiously few that I did not recognize. Might be E. eomigrans based on other fauna found here... Found a number of Horse teeth, uppers and lowers, too large for tridactyl and then this slightly damaged one... I think it is N. eurystyle, but curious on what others think. Then a
  20. So took my mom hunting yesterday so she could experience both a dry dig and a River dig - and found 2 teeth I’m unsure on. First is a molar, that I know of. But it’s too big/has too many cusps to be raccoon: And the second is a premolar still in jaw. Raccoon doesn’t quite seem to match based on size (The tooth is ~9mm long) but it’s shaped different than the bobcat p2 I found. Could it be coyote? Thanks in advance! @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis

    Florida(?) coral

    This is a little bit out of my range for age and location, but a friend of mine was asking if this coral he has could be identified. He is a mineral collector, got this in a collection purchase, and the only info he has for this piece was that it came out of Florida. I know it's not much to go on, but I'm hoping it's distinctive enough to get a possible ID and age. Thanks in advance
  22. This was found with some shells and stone pushed up on a sand bar by hurricane Nicole. Here are some photos of the object. Looks like maybe an atlas vert, but I don't know. It is a little asymmetrical left to right but the photos probably exaggerates that.

    Does anyone know what this is? I found it on a beach along the west coast of Florida. It is about 1 1/2" L x 1" W x 1/2" H ?

    Miocene Horse lower tooth

    Went hunting Thursday. Found a couple of Megs, some small horse teeth, dermal denticles, barracuda teeth, and a bunch of small shark teeth *(Sand Tigers, Bull.Dusky, Hemis, Lemons). The only Horse tooth in decent shape is a lower right cheek tooth. Mostly, I find Nannippus, either aztecus or less frequently westoni. Here is a recent aztecus for comparison to this new find. The new tooth: @fossillarry
  25. I was able to meet with Daniel and his parents at a pay site on 12/3/2022, and the finds did not disappoint, at least for me. First of all, Daniel and his family were amazing folks. His parents were probably closer to my age, maybe even a bit younger, haha. That said, Daniel’s playlist was spectacular, it was late 60s and early 70s soft rock, it made the trip extra special. This was my first time to this site, and clearly a different type of finding fossils. Working for them was harder than I expected, but not too difficult. Here is are my three favorite f
