  1. Out hunting - found what I think is a Symphyseal Meg, a tiny horse tooth I know is 3-toed but I’m not sure which, and then… some claw thing. @Shellseeker @fossillarry @Harry Pristis@Al Dente @hemipristis Meg? 3-Toed Horse tooth - I see an isolated protocone: Claw thing:
  2. So is this a pathological (or very posterior) Hemipristis serra lower, or is it a Physagoleous contortus? @Al Dente @hemipristis
  3. Okay so today I found a tooth that I’m not sure if it’s a Meg or a GW, and then an earbone (I know it’s an ear bone this time! ) that I’m not sure what it’s from. So starting with the shark tooth - the shape and size fits a GW, and the root, while slightly broken, also matches GW. However, it’s got a slight bourlette, which makes me think Meg. But I know that some GW’s have Bourlettes too. @Al Dente Any ideas? Comparison between today’s find (middle) and GW (right) and Meg (left): Now for the earbone. I know it’s mammal and not cetacean… but t

    Peace River Claw Core IDs

    Not entirely sure if these are claw cores or other bones, but figured I’d ask. 1) 2) Once again, thanks in advance! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker

    Arizona Fossil?

    Found this in Winslow Arizona. I'd like to know what type of mineral these fossils are in if they're fossils.
  6. So went hunting a few times this weekend - and I found myself a spot! It produced, and produced, and produced some more, and may still have some left to give, though I probably won’t be going back for a couple weeks. Surprisingly, no Megs. Couple tiny frags. Shark teeth in general were relatively scarce here, but that’s okay - I was hunting for mammal stuff anyway. So to start off with my best find - an absolutely stunning, complete, most of the roots still there, Tapir tooth: Following that up with a spectacled bear molar cap: An opossum jaw with 4
  7. Forgot to ask about this one yesterday! Just a fragment, but hopefully enough for an ID - my initial thought was bison but I’m sure horse is also possible!

    Strange bone chunk

    Another find from just now - big chunk of bone - about 3 inches/75mm I think. Got definite Features. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker Sorry to tag you guys again - you’re great at this though

    Peace River Claw Cores IDs

    Found 2 more claw cores today - no clue what they are - help is appreciated! 1) - 15mm in length 2) 7mm in length:
  10. Been a while since I’ve posted an ID - definitely taking that as a good thing and a sign of me learning. Today I found what I’m 99% sure is a fish jaw, though getting an id would be awesome, and then what I think is a claw core or distal phalanx of some kind. 1) Fish Jaw - 12.5mm in size 2) Claw core? - 25mm in length: Any help is appreciated as always!

    Peace River Ear Bone

    Here’s another find from today I need an ID on - I’m almost positive it’s an ear bone, and a periotic at that - but I’m not sure if it’s deformed, worn away/broken, or just not cetacean, so once again - any help is appreciated! @Shellseeker @Boesse
  12. Okay a few IDs are needed today - shark tooth, what I think is an armadillo scute, and something I don’t know. 1) Shark tooth - the massive root is throwing me off. 2) Armadillo scute? 3) Whatever this is. Could be geological - but idk:

    Peace River Proximal Phalanx

    Hey guys! Found this fossilized proximal phalanx (in stunning condition) today - it’s got a length of 1.2”, or 30.5mm. I was thinking white-tailed deer, but wanted to see if it was anything else!
  14. Hello, Would anyone have any recommendations, tips/tricks for first time visitor heading to the Sarasota and Peace River area? Any fossil guide tour recommended? Thank you.
  15. So - I’ve spent the last 3 days hunting in the Peace, to a decent bit of success! But there’s story behind each day. So Friday I go, and maybe an hour before I was planning on leaving, my shovel breaks. Sucked, I left early. Get home, only to realize I left my sifter and probe at the ramp. Get up the next day, head back out, bringing with me my backup PVC sifter… my sifter and probe are gone. Spend the day hunting, come home, build a new sifter, and probe. Wake up today, head out to the river to try out the new sifter. Anyway! Onto the finds! Apologies in advance
  16. I have tried to have a search on the forum before posting this but there is soooo many posts on rays it is a long job! So... I have received some ray barbs and mouth plates from @Meganeura and I was just wondering if anyone could let me know the age and species of the common fossil find in the Peace river, Florida? I can post a few pictures if you want but they really are just the generic ones readily found! @Shellseekermaybe you can help?

    Peace River bones

    While I’m taking all the pics needed for my trip report, I figured I’d start by getting IDs for a few things so - one tooth that I’m mostly sure is horse, and then some bone bits! 1) Tooth: 2) Bone #1: 3) Bone #2: 4) Bone #3: Thanks in advance!
  18. Meganeura

    Peace River Shark Tooth ID needed

    Found this tooth yesterday - was thinking C. hastalis, but really not sure. @Al Dente Can you confirm one way or another?

    Peace River Cetacean Ear Bones

    In trying to find an ID for an ear bone I found yesterday, I stumbled upon a thread here discussing different sizing of dolphin ear bones in Florida - and wanted to ask if anyone ( @Boesse) might know or be able to ID these! 1) So this first one is my biggest at 44.5mm long: 2) This next one is 32mm long: Comparison of the 2: 3 + 4) Then I’ve got these 2 that are the same size, 25mm: All 4 together: And also I know the bottom of these 2 is whale - but is the top also

    Tilly Bones? - Peace River, Florida

    So I’ve found some strange bones that I’ve been identifying as Tilly Bones - Hyperostosis fish verts - but I wanted to confirm since I’ve found varying kinds. So these are 2 that don’t have the usual double bump on them: 1) 2)
  21. So today was a day. Came out to the spot from Thursday, using my inflatable kayak, and spent from 8am to 3:30pm digging. And it was a veryyyyy worthwhile hunt. So to start off, Megs. I actually found some! They’re all sub 2”, in fact one of them has a slant height of 0.5”, and it’s NOT a posterior Meg. I didn’t even realize they could be that small. And yes, one of them is completely enamel-worn, which is neat, and the one to the right of that has a pathological root! I also found 65 - yes, 65 - fragolodons, though I’m only including the nicer pieces here:

    Peace River Possible Fish vertebrae

    Forgot to post this yesterday to ask about it - but I’m pretty sure this is a fish vert of some kind and just wanted confirmation/an ID!
  23. Family Fun

    Peace river bone

    I found this in the Peace River in early June, I’ve tried researching it but honestly have no clue where to start. I’m giving it away to a family tomorrow here in Orlando and I’d love to at least tell them a direction to look for identification. The family are two twin girls 5, and boy who is 7, and the parents are 2 of Orlando’s finest. They made me a drawing which says misD ric after giving them a few fossils this summer. @Shellseeker @hemipristis Any help would be appreciated Rick
  24. So finally getting around to doing this trip report now that I’ve got some ID’s in. Combining yesterday as well, since yesterday was kinda-sorta a dud, but not wholly. Went out to one of Peace River’s tributaries not expecting much beyond some orange teeth, and walked away with a ridiculous amount of cool finds. So to start off! My first ever River Meg! I say first ever as it’s my first that’s more than 75% complete - enough to be considered a tooth over a fragment. It’s most likely a posterior tooth, given the cusp and size! Next up is my first ever Tapir tooth - I b
