ID help, please and thanks!
Amarykah posted a topic in Fossil IDAlmost 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
ID confirmation please - I think I found a glyptodont molar!

Peace River Hunt
PODIGGER posted a topic in Fossil Hunting TripsGot out on the river yesterday for what turned out to be a productive day. It was a chilly morning so the wetsuit was a necessity. Even if the air temp is warmer the water stays cold throughout the day. I returned to a gravel bed I found earlier in the week and got right down to digging and sifting. Every clean out of the sifter provided a good number of various small shark teeth. Tiger, Sand Tiger, Snaggle Tooth were abundant. A few small partial megs and even a baby Mako made an appearance. Below is a picture of the best of the shark teeth along with an alligator tooth and what I b
Brandy Cole posted a topic in Fossil ID@Rockwood Wouldn't this be too big to be glyptodont? Or am I missing something? Including one I found for size reference.

Glyptodon jaw section?
Zenmaster6 posted a topic in Fossil IDFound in creek in Texas. I pulled mastodon tusks and molars out of the same creek. Could it be mammoth fragment or tapir jaw fragment? Also please note fossils here do not turn black like Florida, but stay white with blue inclusions.
Brandy Cole posted a topic in Fossil IDFound this in South Texas sandy gravel matrix. Pleistocene era. It's pretty small. But could this be a glyptodont osteoderm? It doesn't look like the turtle/tortoise pieces I normally find. The seams are very pronounced, and the grain on broken places is very fine and not as spongy as the turtle pieces.

Squished Glyptodont scute?
Dirtlark posted a topic in Fossil IDI found this rock recently in an area where high mesas are eroding near the river. I know there was a lot of Pueblo activity and also likely pre-Pueblo. There is a lot of volcanic rock, but nothing that looks like this. The erosion is exposing tons of river rock of all sizes, that likely came from the north with glacier melt. This area is by the river, roughly halfway between mountains and volcanoes. The rock is smallish, palm-sized, and sort of a squished pyramid shape. It turns blackish when wet, but as it dries it becomes this grayish color. I have looked at it with a magnifier and don't se
Need to identify this fossil
dwr1973 posted a topic in Fossil IDBought this fossil online about 2 years ago and it is supposed to be a Glyptodont scute. The seller said it was found in the Withlachoochee River, Madison County, Florida. It weighs 3-1/2 lbs. and measures 5" across by 3-1/2" from top to bottom. Fine, light colored sand in the crevices.
Peace River Plant Impression?
dalmayshun posted a topic in Fossil IDA friend and I went out on the Peace River yesterday. The river is the lowest I've seen...32" below normal, so much of the bank was exposed. In the area we were hunting, I decided to check out the mudstone bank...located between layers of limestone, and in separating a layer, I came the smaller impressions below. It looks so plant like to me: reminds me of the edges of hydrilla, but am so unsure what it could be. I included a close up so the finely tapered ends would show, as well as the somewhat ovoid edge impressions. I was excited, but I also know looks are deceiving. ( when I was first l
