  1. Could not identify these little pieces myself. Obviously 1 is more of a weird type of rock formation, but I was wondering if anyone knew why it looked like it was made of all those little capsules. 2 is most interesting to me, I honestly have no idea. 3 seems to maybe be a pieces of sediment that got something pressed into it and it hardened as a print? Not sure.
  2. I'm trying to find new fossil hunting sites. I know that hogtown creek in Gainesville has some areas where you can find small megs and horse teeth, but I am not sure what parts of the creek they are in. The only area in hogtown I have been too has only centimeter or less long teeth, though there are hundreds. Does anybody mind sharing any sites in hogtown or just in Gainesville in general. Feel free to PM me or tell me what forum I should have put this in (I know it's probably not this one) thanks!
  3. The Florida Museum of Natural History (FLMNH) at the UF campus in Gainesville, FL is presently running an exhibit called Fantastic Fossils at the display museum on campus (where the butterfly enclosure is located). There is a variety of interesting fossils in the exhibit but the most interesting part (though I'm biased) is the "live lab" where visitors can watch the paleontologists, students, and volunteers (like me and Tammy) do our work. I'm presently prepping a large rhino skull (Teleoceras n. sp.) from the Montbrook site. At some point in time we're going to get a large flatscreen hooked u
  4. Hello! I’ve been tracking my surrounding areas in the last year finding new spots that yield great things. And I’ve seen several people I’ve met in passing hit Gainesville with great success! I’ve read that there were some newer crack downs on fossil hunting in the city limits and I’m reaching out for any further information or even any local hunters willing to get out and breathe some smooth fresh air this Sunday, December 12th? This may be one of my last hunts for a while due to a beautiful life addition coming up! Ive done plenty of reading up on Hogstown and Ra
  5. Earlier this year I was fortunate enough to meet up with @digit in Gainesville Florida where he very graciously provided my wife and I the opportunity to do some matrix fossil hunting in a local stream. We sieved for a good long time collecting many nice shark and ray teeth as well as other items out of the large portion. At the end we nearly filled a five gallon bucket with gravel that we ran through essentially window screen in the creek to get out the silt and clay. My original trip report can be found here: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/114209-north-florida-
  6. ClearLake


    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    This is an Ichnofossil formed by a worm. They are a U shaped tunnel. A paper by Bromley and Alessandro (1983) "Bioerosion in the Pleistocene of Southern Italy: Icnogenera Caulostrepsis and Maeandropolydora" identifies species and describes them very well. Thanks to @abyssunder for the heads up on this ID.
  7. ClearLake

    Diodontid Toothplate

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    This is a toothplate from a fish within the family Diodontidae. Thanks to @Al Dente for the assist with this ID (as well as several other specimens).
  8. ClearLake

    Pogonias sp.

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    The isolated teeth from the Drum (Pogonias sp) are very common in the gravel. The crown tends to be black and shiny but the teeth come in a variety of shapes from broad and flat to small conical and sometimes with a point or crest in the center. They are set in a bony plate and have a straight sided root, although it is commonly missing.
  9. ClearLake


    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These are fish teeth which are similar to the Drum (Pogonias sp) but have some differences. The crown tends to be less black and shiny and the roots are different (tapered and striated). I'm just not sure if this is variation within the Drum tooth set or a different type of fish. If anyone has seen this particular morphology in a drum or other fish, let me know.
  10. ClearLake

    Labrodon sp.

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These are tooth sets and isolated teeth from a Wrasse, most likely Labrodon pavimentatum?. Although somewhat similar to the commonly found Drum Fish (Pogonias sp.), these teeth are stacked on top of each other (called phyllodont teeth) and lack roots unlike the Pogonias which have roots and are set in a single layer in a bony mouth plate. Many of the teeth have a figure 8 type configuration to the base and in this gravel, they tend to be a bluish color.
  11. ClearLake

    Fish Vertebrae

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    A variety of fish vertebrae, probably bony fish. Top one is different and may be from something else.
  12. ClearLake

    Fish Teeth

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    A variety of teeth, most likely from fish, that have not been ID'd to any specific type.
  13. ClearLake

    Unknown Fish Teeth

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    Probably fish teeth, but the type or species is unknown.
  14. ClearLake

    Sphyraena barracuda

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These teeth are thicker and the edges more rounded than "normal" Barracuda teeth, but with the distinctive enamaloid cutting edges, I believe they just show variation within the tooth set.
  15. ClearLake

    Burrows Fills?

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These could be burrow fills although one person has suggested some could be a Corraline Algae.
  16. ClearLake

    Crab Claws

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    Numerous types of "crab" claws.
  17. ClearLake

    Mollusk Molds

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    I found lots of internal molds/casts of both Bivalves and Gastropods.
  18. ClearLake

    Alligator Tooth

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    Looks to be a broken gator tooth.
  19. ClearLake

    Bone/Teeth Frags

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These are fragments of bones and a partial Horse? tooth.
  20. ClearLake

    Coral Casts

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These are casts of individual coralites within a colonial coral
  21. ClearLake


    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These are an Ichnofossil that I have tentatively assigned to Gatrochaenolites. They may be related to the other Ichnofossil here, Caulostrepsis.
  22. ClearLake

    Unknown Casts

    From the album: Gainesville Florida Microscopic Miocene

    These appear to be casts of something, just not sure what yet.

    Florida Mysteries

    Here is (hopefully) one last post to help me identify some items I found while searching through the micro matrix from a Gainesville creek that Ken @digit was nice enough take us to. Some other items have been covered in previous posts:; http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/119097-gainesville-shark-teeth-question/&tab=comments#comment-1305867 http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/114209-north-florida-fun/&tab=comments#comment-1264293 The matrix comes from a creek in Gainesville, Florida and most of the fossils are from the Miocene aged Hawthorn

    Santa Fe River Tooth

    Hi everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster haha. I’m still kind of new to this so sorry if this is a super obvious ID, but I was wondering what kind of tooth this is exactly. I was thinking crocodile, but it seems to have a slightly different shape so I wasn’t sure. I found it at Ginnie Sprints in High Springs on the Santa Fe River in Florida. It’s about 2 1/4” long. Thank you in advance for your help!
  25. Had another busy and enjoyable afternoon volunteering at the FLMNH vertebrate paleontology warehouse which was part of the reason why Tammy and I moved up to Gainesville. This afternoon started out with sorting the bones from non-bone for the last couple of bags of the > 1/4" chunky matrix pieces from sandbags collected at the Montbrook site in 2017. Now they can start screen-washing 2018...and then 2019...and maybe someday get caught-up to the present. In some of my first 1/4" matrix bags, sorting the complete bones (to be cataloged) from the scrappy broken bones, I had missed
