    Two more Peace River ID’s needed

    So 2 more things I wanted to ask for IDs on. First is what I originally thought was Dugong bone - but now that it’s dried I can see concentric rings in it - which makes me think tusk? But no Schreger lines. The other is a piece of bone with an odd shape. 1) Possible tusk? 2) Bone @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis Either of you guys know? Thanks in advance!
  2. Meganeura

    Possible Coprolite, maybe?

    Found this in some gravel near peace River - not sure if this is coprolite or not, wanted to get some opinions! Still very new on identifying most fossils.

    Peace River ID help

    So 3… specimens from Peace River that I’ve posted before but never got any ID’s on that I figured I’d repost and ask again - consolidated to one post. Not sure what any of the 3 are. 1) This feels like it could be a tooth? 2) Not a single idea what it could be. 3) Not sure if it’s a mineral like chert or mammoth enamel or something else. As always, any help is appreciated!
  4. I had found this tooth a while ago and was just now realizing it wasn’t in fact a shark tooth like I had originally thought - or at least I believe it isn’t, so any ID is appreciated! There’s very slightly worn away serrations on the blade near the root, the camera didn’t pick ‘em up. Also found this piece of bone (I think it’s bone, honestly could be rock) that looked pretty interestingly shaped, so I wanted to get an ID (or be told it’s rock if that’s the case!) 1) Tooth: 2) Bone?
  5. Back on the peace today, found a bunch of mammoth tooth frags and whatever this other thing is, and I’m not sure if the frag IS a frag. 1) Mammoth frag? 2) Whatever this is, maybe it’s chert, maybe it’s a fossil?
  6. So I was originally planning on going kayaking to find my own spot today on the peace but the kayaking plans fell through, so I had to sadly resort to a boat ramp. Public area, heavily hunted. Still, came away with some decent stuff! To start off, the biggest and most complete Meg I’ve ever pulled out of the Peace (No, I still haven’t found one that’s got even 75% of it left ) This is probably the coolest pattern on a shark tooth I’ve seen on this Tiger Shark tooth: Next is the nicest mammoth molar fragment I’ve found, with a bunch of o
  7. So went to peace River today, and as always, I come back with ID’s being needed! So a few different things today. 1. Possible piece of tusk? It’s got cross-hatched lines on it which makes me think of Schreger lines. 2. Another thing I thought may be tusk, for the same reason. 3. I’m almost certain this is a mammoth tooth fragment, but I wanted confirmation! 4. Are these hammerhead shark teeth, or lemon? Thanks in advance! 1) Tusk? 2) Also tusk? 3) Mammoth tooth frag? 4) Hammerhe
  8. So I went hunting in Bone Valley yesterday, the same paid dig site I had originally gone to and met @Nimravis at, and came away with some gorgeous finds! To start off with my favorite find - a part of a Gomphothere tooth and a few other fragments: Then of course, as always, some Megs - found 3 complete ones with a bunch of frags, the complete ones are all small, 2”, 1.5”, and 1.2” in slant height: I also found a very complete Three-Toed Horse tooth: I found a whole bunch of sand tiger shark teeth, including, finally, one with a cusp:

    Peace River find-what is it?

    Found in the peace river, Florida. Any ideas? Thanks
  10. Some IDs needed for fossils from my hunt yesterday, so any help would be appreciated! 1) Not sure if this is a sea robin skull or something else. 2) I think this is a very worn tooth from something? 3) Preeeeeeeetty sure this is just a rock with some interesting layers - but I’ve found them on occasion and figured I may as well ask: 4) Very thick piece of what I originally thought was sea turtle shell, but due to how thick it is, I’m not sure anymore: Top: Side:
  11. Wanted to see if anyone can ID these chunks of bone I’ve found in the Peace River. They’ve all got somewhat interesting shapes so I figured IDs might be possible! 1) 2) 3) Any help is, as always, appreciated!
  12. So decided to try one last hunt on the river before things got too high, and cause I was hoping to find a complete Meg in the river as I still haven’t. Ended up getting caught in a massive downpour for the second half of the hunt, which has cued me into bringing a tarp next time so I can see what I’m actually doing. Trip was relatively uneventful with finds, though I found a couple neat things I wanted to share! So first up is this very tiny Glyptodon scute I found. Not quite a full piece, but still very pretty and neat: Next is a common bull
  13. Found this half tooth last week in the Peace River and despite pouring over all my reference books can’t come up with a decent identification. Appears to be a worn carnivore tooth (?) to me is all I have....... It has a distinctive concavity on the distal aspect of the remaining root and appears to have worn cusps when viewed from the side. I apologize for the less than stellar photography. Many thanks !

    7 feet at Zolfo makes it very difficult (dangerous) to hunt the Peace River. I just got off the phone with my fossil hunting partner. Likely we'll go Monday trying those shallow spots we marked during season. That is because we are more stubborn than Bighorns. Makes me think back to Tuesday. We tried a location that has produced some miocene finds, but we had been there many previous times, and ignoring small teeth, there were few finds. Might be a croc tooth, but I would not argue if someone said gator. The reason I made this a FossilID thread
  15. Going back through my old finds and upon checking some I realized I wasn’t sure if I had them right. First is a tooth - I had it in my “modern” section, AKA not a fossil - but it feels too heavy to be modern, so I figured I should ask. The second I had as a trace fossil, possibly a trace of a barnacle? But I’m really not sure, part of me wonders if its something else due to the patterns. 1) Tooth from something: 2) Trace Fossil?

    More Peace River IDs needed

    So finally finished sorting my fossils from Saturday, and had a few more pieces I can’t quite identify! 1) So first up is this piece of fossilized bone - it doesn’t burn, and it’s solid, so I do know it’s bone. Not a clue what it’s from: 2) Another bone piece presumably - but it’s got parallel consistent striations on it, which have left me quite unsure: 3) Next up is whatever this is, found a few of these but always forget to ask for an ID: 4) Second to last is this rock,

    Peace River Finds - ID’s needed

    Went hunting at Peace River today - found a bunch of stuff that I’m unsure of what they are. Still very much learning! So any ID’s on the following would be awesome: 1. Starting off with a bone - I’m mostly sure it’s a bone and not actually a fossil, but still no clue what from: 2. Also bone, but this one is definitely fossilized: 3. I’m assuming this a tooth, but I’m not sure if that’s right or what it’s from if so: 4 + 5. Two things I think are osteoderms/scutes, but also not sure what from:
  18. Was digging/sorting through my fossils this morning - had a couple that I hadn’t yet gotten ID’d and wanted to ask about! So first is this tooth I originally thought was Carcharhinus of some kind, but on a close look it’s got no serrations at all, which is making me wonder if it’s a C. Hastalis? Second up is… whatever this is. Fish mouth plate of some kind? One side of it the “bubbles” pop out, the other side they’re craters. And finally, what I originally thought was gator tooth, then thought may have been antler, and I’m now back to thinking tooth but no
  19. I ventured out on the holiday weekend, against my better judgement, to give the Zolfo Springs stretch another try. Turned out to be much better than I expected.....traffic was minimal and only a few others in the section I wanted to work in. Fairly productive day (for me) as well which was a pleasant surprise. The one item that is new for me is the astragalus (I assume) with the added projection. I figured Harry @Harry Pristis could give me an ID, but if anyone is available on this holiday that knew who it is from, I'd appreciate it.
  20. Picked up this tooth today in the Peace River and I'm really not sure what herbivore it's from, I'm thinking possibly camel? Any help would be appreciated! Top: Bottom: Sides:

    Can anyone tell me what this is?

    Does anyone know what this might be, found it on peace river?

    Peace River Odds and Ends

    Just looking over some of my finds from my Florida trip. Not quite sure which are fossils and which are just stones. All help is appreciated. All were found in the Peace River. First specimen: pics 1-3; second: pics 4-6; third: pics 7 & 8; fourth: 9 & 10; fifth: 11 & 12.

    Peace River ID help

    Hoping to get some help identifying some finds from this weekends hunt. The second piece is pretty beat up but I hope there is enough left for an Id. The third is a tiny intact bone that may or may not be fossilized. Thank you!
  24. Jumped at the chance for my daughter to join me for a couple of days of digging the Peace and although we didn’t find anything big the smalls kept us more than busy and the variety of finds was enough to put a smile on her face. The weather on May 20th was perfect with the river low and slow and scattered rain - we decided to try a new area and found some good gravel and it did not disappoint. Lots of sharks teeth, and enough other goodies kept us busy and we put in a full 8 hours of sifting. Day 2 - what a change ! Overnight rains ended about 9 am and we found the river had risen close to a
  25. Hey so I have this very degraded fossil tooth from the Peace River. I'm assuming it's horse of some kind but can't tell if Equus or some kind of three toed horse. I think it's partially broken too so I don't know if we're even able to ID it. Sorry for the poor quality pictures. Camera isn't great and the tooth is only an inch long.
