    Alligator Attack

    I don't know if others have posted about this already so I thought it would be a good warning and reminder to those who hunt the Peace River. This past Sunday a thirteen year old girl was swimming in the Peace River near the Gardner Boat Ramp when she was attacked by a large alligator. It happened around 2:30 in the afternoon. Luckily, the girl managed to get away from the gator but it did bite her on the arm. Florida Fish and Wildlife confirmed the attack. The alligators are more active this time of year. With that, the water level and flow rate I don't hunt the river this ti

    Extinct mackerel?

    I would have found this on the peace river sometime this year, and was in my broader collection of teeth in a jar. I’ve been giving some fossils to a very cute family that walk by the house nightly, two 5 year old twin girls and their brother who is 7, and their mom and dad. Yesterday I poured some of teeth into some sand and shells I collected at Venice last year and told them to be sure to also find the very small ones. They did just that and brought this one by tonight and I couldn’t identify it. I grabbed this picture before they left, and the young man said if you identify

    Peace river bone id

    Found this piece of bone in the Peace River and I’m thinking it is possibly a fractured piece of a bison (or cow !) front leg ulna ? Thank you for helping with the id

    Peace River finds

    Found these 3 in the Peace River last week near Bowling Green - first one I believe is a hoof core from ? The other 2 I have no clue and would appreciate some help in identifying- additional photos available. Many thanks

    Camel or llama - or both?

    Found this beautiful incisor ( upper left ? ) and 2 posterior camelid teeth last week in the peace river near Bowling Green. Wanting to know if they are camel or llama and what occlusal characteristics separate the two. I have read the threads put forth by shellseeker and viewed the UF paleo pictures comparing the two discussing the cementum level as 1 distinguishing characteristic and the presence of crenulations as an additional identifying feature but still have trouble distinguishing the two. Another feature they discuss is the shape of the cusps being either U or V shaped - I assume this
  6. Yesterday was awesome.... A day trip on Peace River never fails... Had some great finds... By the way, did all my search by "Fossil Noodling"... Spent all day just feeling around the floor with my hands and feet... It's my new favorite way of looking for fossils... =) P.S.... Need help identifying the vertebrae. Thanks.

    Looking for access points

    Hey everyone, I’m new to the forum and to Florida and was looking for some ideas as to where I can go fossil hunting. I have an inflatable raft with a trolling motor and was really wanting to go off the beaten path. I’ve been to the peace river campground and the boat ramp just around the corner from there but would really like to explore other areas like Joshua creek but don’t know where is a good place to park pic is from a few years ago when I went diving in Venice beach

    Peace River fossil

    Found this bone in Pearce River and need help identifying.... Thank you for your help...
  9. Another weird find in Peace River... Can anyone help identify??? Thank you for it time...

    ID Help Please

    Got back to the Peace River yesterday for a beautiful day of hunting. Temps were in the mid eighties and I was able to go without the wetsuit for the first time this year. Found a lot of the usual teeth and bones along with this one that is new to me. I believe it is a small medial phalanx. It measures only 24mm long x 12mm wide tapering to 6mm with a noticeable hump or curve from end to end. After much research and ruling out several possibilities, just based on size, I found a document on line that I think is a match.

  11. I need help identifying this jaw bone with teeth. I only have the one picture but the molars are pretty distinctive and hopefully are enough. This was found in the Peace River, Florida. Thanks for any help!

    Three Toed Horse?

    Picked up both of these in the same gravel pile on thePeace River this past week. I showed the suspected astragalus in the trip section and @Shellseeker, Jack, replied that he thought the size and shape were right for tridactyl. The astragalus along with the second find of what I believe to be is a partial calcaneum have me thinking both could be from a three toed horse. I found an incisor for a three toed horse in this same area last spring. I would appreciate any opinions as to the ID on both of these. Thanks! First up is the astragalus measuring 32mm long x 27mm wide x 19m

    Season Ending Hunt

    Yesterday I made one last trip to the Peace River to end this hunting season. When I checked the depth and flow gauges it showed both had increased as a result of recent rain but not enough to make a trip unsafe. The one caveat was the prediction of rain and possible thunder storms in my target area by 2 pm. It is really the threat of afternoon thunder storms almost everyday now that is the impetus to end the season. So, I got an early start and was on the river by 7:40 am with the intention of calling it a day by 2 pm. I headed back to the spot I have been digging in for the last four tr

    Help with Unknown bone

    I have had this piece of heavy bone for a couple of weeks and have been trying to come up with an ID before putting in the unidentified category. It was found in the Peace River, FL. When I picked it up I found it to be very solid and heavy. It has a curvature/roundness to it similar to what I have found in pieces of tusk, along with what looks like an outer ring of "bark". The ends show no sign of Schreger lines to indicate ivory. It also has the honeycomb type look on the inner side that one would expect from bone. I haven't been able to find anything to compare it to. Ove

    What ungual phalanx?

    Found this bone in the Peace River, FL last week. I have been attempting to narrow down an id since then. I believe it is an Ungual Phalanx but have not been able to determine from what. It measures 35 mm long x 35 mm wide and 33 mm tall at the highest point. As such, it is larger than what I can find for deer or llama and smaller than than what I have found for Equus or bison. That has led me to an old post from @Shellseeker that resulted in a giant tortoise id for an ungual phalanx and makes me think this could be another. It was found in a spot that produced several tortoise leg spu

    Help ID Whale tooth+

    Had a beautiful day hunting the Peace River, FL yesterday and came away with some intriguing finds. From prior postings and photos I reviewed provided by @Harry Pristis and @Shellseeker I believe the first exciting find of the day was a small whale tooth and I am seeking confirmation on that here. The tooth measures 37 mm x 10 mm and I believe it shows the hint of the ring pattern referenced by Shellseeker as his tell tale sign of whale. This next tooth has me wondering if i

    Help with ID on 4 unknowns

    I have four finds from the Peace River that I have not been able to ID. They have been picked up on two recent visits to the river and I have been searching on line and on the Forum for a match without success. At least one may just be a suggestively shaped rock. I am pretty confident the other three are bone but I have not been able to figure them out. Came up with the astragulus and phalange possibilities looking through textbook materials. I would appreciate any ideas from some of our more experienced Forum veterans. First up the possible astragulus that measures 52mm x 48

    Please help with ID

    Picked this up last week in the Peace River, FL. When I took it out of the screen I gave it a quick look and thought it might be a ray barb (was distracted by a nice dolphin periotic in the same tray) and stuffed it in my pouch. After getting home and taking another look I saw enamel and what I take for an angled bite surface. I have looked through my reference materials and searched on line but have yet to come up with a match. I am thinking land mammal but have not ruled out some type of cetacean. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Small carnivore tooth?

    Small, sharp curved point, groove along one side, cross section would be flattened, not round, tooth found in Peace River, Florida. Approximately 1 inch long, 5/16” wide at root, 3/16” thick at root. ID assistance appreciated.

    Artifact or natural occurrence?

    I found this small piece of what I believe is bone with what looks like a patterned design of punched holes. The piece is only 25mm long x 10 mm wide x 3mm thick and tapering to a flattened end. When I first spotted it in the sifter I thought maybe it was a chip of a tooth, but then saw the holes and from looking at the sides came to the conclusion it was bone. I don't know what could have caused the holes that look like they were punched into the bone in a side by side pattern. This is what made me think it may be an artifact of some type. The holes do not go all the way through the bone

    Id help "ball joint"

    Last spring I found the below bone "ball joint" in the Peace River, FL. I consolidated it for preservation and have been trying to come up with a possible species ID ever since. I think I have narrowed it down to being the tip of a mammal humerus, but can't seem to get any further. Part of the problem is I can't find any photos or diagrams that provide measurements for the "ball joint" of any specimens I have looked at. All have overall measurements for the humerus but nothing focused on the joint. Measurements on the joint: Overall top of the "ball" = 60mm x 45mm B

    Peace River ID help

    Got out to the Peace River, FL yesterday for another hunt. The water level finally seemed low enough that I would be able to get to my target spot and have a productive day. The only problem was the fact that the sun never came out and I had to quit early due to getting wet and cold with no way to warm up. Luckily I had my emergency dry shirt to change into before I started shivering! I always keep one on board the kayak sealed in a plastic bag. Came up with several of the usual items, horse tooth, partial megs, couple of hemis, turtle and a nice gator tooth. Then I pulled up what I believ

    Teeth and bone fragments

    Found these in the Peace River in Florida a couple days ago. Pretty sure the first tooth is from a gator, not sure about the others, maybe tips from something like wales or big cats?
