    Help with mammal IDs

    One way to know you have a great fossil hunting site is that every time you go you get something that you have no clue what it could be. Today we went to our best creek for mammal fossils and had a great day. We got multiple known fossils, like horse, gator, and gar, but also many we did not recognize. On the first fossil, the texture reminds me of a gator osteoderm, so I was thinking some kind of gator bone. The second I think is a section of gator jaw, because of shape and texture. The 3rd I'm following the theme of gator and going with gator vert. The fourth has a bubbly texture, but I'm no

    Mammal identification

    Today we went to a spot that we don't go often, it started raining about 50 minutes in (we should have checked the weather) but we got quite a few fossils including these unidentified ones (sorry about the picture quality on some of them) the first I believe is a gator tooth with root, the second set, I have no idea about, the 3rd might be dugong, the forth and 5th I think are deer, the sixth I think is tapir, the seventh Is some sort of rodent and the last I believe is a snake vert.

    50 minute fossil hunt

    Today we went to a great spot we don't go often. The first 50 minutes were great, then it started raining,I can't imagine what I would have found if I got to stay a good 3 hours. We got two gator osteoderms, including the smallest one I've ever seen (below the large one) some gator teeth. Multiple mammal teeth (follow link below message to get to the ID message) horse frags, gar scales, turtle shell, and other weird fossils. Again, please go to the ID chat just to check if you can help.

    Dredge IDs

    Today we took a trip down to a dredge and had probably our second best trip, we came out with quite a few fossils that we could not identify, I was wondering if anyone could help? Ones a vert from a large fish, probably a drum, but I was wondering if someone could clarify that. Another is a bone that looks nearly complete, probably from a whale, but I am not certain and it looks distinct, and I was hoping someone would know the specifics. Also we got a price of what I am pretty sure is turtle plastron and a gator vert. And the best find was some sort of canine. I'm not sure what it is, I do no
  5. Over the weekend, me and my friend went to a creek in North Florida and found the Fossils below (main picture to fire wolf) the next day I went by myself to a land site near me and found most of the small teeth and the megalodon. This was our first time at this creek, and it was a huge success, with the most Miocene age fossils of any creek I have been to. We got camel, round- tailed muskrat ( thank you to those who helped identify that) horse, gator, and best of all, my first dire wolf tooth.

    Peace River Visit X 2

    Out to the Peace River, FL twice this week, Tuesday & Saturday. Was busy tracking down an ID for what turned out be an eagle or large hawk toe bone. With that done and a trip out yesterday I thought I would combine the two visits into one trip report. The weather was perfect both days with temps in the mid 80*s. The water flow and level were excellent and visibility great. It was easy to see the bottom and anything laying there. A shot of the morning paddle to the dig site - Got there and started digging with the first good find being the phalanx or toe bone m

    Peace River Visit

    Got back out to the Peace River, FL yesterday. I usually try and get there by 0800 AM but with the cold overnight temperatures this week I delayed my start time until closer to 0900 AM to let the sun rise and warm things up a bit. I was glad I did so as I found the sun high enough to be warming up the spot I had targeted for the day. The morning was mostly a lot of the usual small miscellaneous shark teeth. I did find one small, and I mean small, alligator tooth. A partial small shark vert also turned up. Rounding out the morning were several nice Hemis, upper and lower, a nice size part
  8. Back on the Peace River yesterday. Another cool start to the day, 63* F when I launched at 8:00am. Headed back to where I found the camel cuboid last week and found there was still plenty of gravel to sift through. The morning progressed with a couple of nice, if partial, alligator teeth, many small shark teeth (nearly 200 by the end of day) a partial deer tooth and a couple of turtle leg spurs (5 for the day). The afternoon produced a couple of unidentified bones I will have to research and a very nice Llama astragalus - Hemiauchenia macrocephalus. Makes sense after finding the cuboid la

    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!

    Gator Vs Crocodile Teeth ID

    I'm sure many of you are aware of the issue concerning discerning between a croc tooth and a gator tooth. So this is my attempt to answer it, now that I've attained a varied collection. First, I will start with the popular generalizations, then I will list each of my crocodile and gator teeth and assess each one. With said data, I will hopefully deduce the best method for discernment. Though this is not meant to be comprehensive, I hope it can be used as a general guideline for identifying crocodylian teeth. The answer is not as clear-cut as you might surmise... Generalizations:

    Croc/ gator teeth?

    I was wondering if I could get help on a ID on these. I have quite a few and have been organizing them with my crocodile and alligator teeth, but they have some notable differences. The croc and gator teeth I have there is a enamel covering its core. The texture is different too. I have a few of these I've found and different sizes. If anyone could lend a thought that would be awesome Thanks Brandon
  12. Got out to the Peace River yesterday and a beautiful day it was! The river continues to be very low and slow moving. As I was heading east on the 1 hour drive I was listening to news reports of several Florida Mayors wanting the counties or state to issue stay at home orders. This would certainly put a damper on visits to the river, I travel through 3 counties just to get there. So I hit the river thinking this could be my last outing for a while. With very few people on the river on any week day there really isn't a reason to stop folks from getting out and enjoying a day of exercise whe

    Huge gator tooth?!

    Hello friends, I recently found this tooth that has some gator looking characteristics, but the size absolutely dwarfs every other gator tooth in my collection. My mind was absolutely blown when I found this thing. It was found in Bradenton, Fl. It’s about 2.5” long and 1” wide and the widest point. It’s in poor condition but from the enamel and hole inside Im thinking its def. a tooth. It’s hollow from about the halfway point up. What is this monster tooth!? I think the site is part of hawthorn group Arcadia formation Oligocene/Miocene but do not quote me on that part, still tr

    Fossil Armor

    From the album: Macro Florida Fossils

    I think this is crocodilian
  16. The last year or so I have gotten back into fossil hunting which I loved when I was young (45 now). With a 9 year old son that loves it too (I have even converted my wife a little!). We were invited to look for fossils in a small creek accessible by foot on 4-28-18. Less than a foot deep where we dug and sifted by hand and small garden shovel for about 4 hours. Mostly found a couple hundred small sharks teeth that we will donate to a science facility here that will put them in a sand box and let children find them at a class/event. An interesting bone that looks like a socket joint piece, a

    Alligator teeth fossil or just a rock

    I'm not even sure if this is a fossil, looks like a baby alligators teeth. I do know that the teeth should have a different color than the rock. This was found in Venice Florida
