  1. I found this big bone chunk, but I am afraid it may lack sufficient diagnostic features to identify it. I thought I would let the forum look at it before I throw it into my garden. Any ideas about what this might be? It looks like a partial "end" piece of a larger bone. Judging from the size, the critter had to be pretty big. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Okay so found this very strange shark vert today. I think it’s shark, anyway. Doesn’t match any bony fish I know. But also doesn’t match any shark. Measures about an inch across and an inch long. @hemipristis @Al Dente @MarcoSr
  3. While sorting through some of my more recent finds I came across this very small shark tooth I found. My initial thought was tiger, but it doesn’t seem to match any Galeocerdo species I know of, nor does it match P. Contortus. Any help would be appreciated! @hemipristis @Al Dente @MarcoSr
  4. On a recent trip to the Peace River, I came across these two finds. Pretty sure the brown tooth is Capybara. The black tooth, I am stumped. Any help is most appreciated.

    You can go home again

    I had not been in the Peace River for a month. Cool weather, had covid which made me weak, busy with other responsibilities. I went with two friends. The River is very low, clear in most spots. We chose to go back to a place where we had found a lot of pretty black on black Megs 5-6 years ago. Also had Mammoth and Mastodon fossils. One of us found just a few little shark teeth, a marble, and a beat up Llama tooth. Another found LOTS of little shark teeth and 2 or 3 distressed Megs. Great day, Sunshine , good friends , cool water. I could hear a Hoot Owl in mid afternoon. H
  6. It has been a while since I’ve needed this many things ID’d! So found something I’m pretty sure is a mammoth carpal or tarsal bone (Or a toe? I really don’t know), a piece of… coral, maybe? And 2 limb bones. 1) Mammoth carpal/tarsal or toe - measures 6”x3.5”x2.5” or 150mmx90mmx63mm A video to show it better is at the end. Coral: Limb 1 - measures 6.5”x1” or 160mmx27mm Limb 2 - 4.2”x1.1” or 106mmx28mm @Shellseeker @digit @Harry Pristis @Brandy Cole thanks in advance! FullSizeRender.MOV
  7. So this past weekend was another very successful weekend. Didn’t have quite the volume of finds, but the things I did find… So starting off… found in 2 pieces and put back together with epoxy - a lower left M3 Columbian Mammoth molar: Following that with 2 chunks of the lower right molar and a chunk from one of the uppers - all found within a ~8 foot circle: A 2” long, the biggest I’ve ever found, gator tooth, 2 other smaller gator teeth, and a decent gator osteoderm: 13 Glyptodon and 2 Holmesina Osteoderms: Megs -

    Can't decide on this ID

    Another find from the Peace River, FL last week. Upon first look I thought it was a very worn Tapir tooth. When I got it home I started to think the center was too hollowed out to be Tapir. Searching on line and in the Forum galleries I got the idea it might be Manatee or Dugong. I keep going back and forth between Tapir and Manatee so finally decided to get opinions from the group here. Measurements of crown: 1" x 7/8" x 6/8" (at highest point) or 23mm x 21mm x 17mm This first view is what has me thinking Manatee or Dugong

    Strange Tooth in Peace River

    Good afternoon everyone! This is a tooth that my girlfriend found while sifting in the river and we aren't quite sure what type of tooth it is so any help would be greatly appreciated. I am pretty sure that is it mammal and I want to assume that it is carnivore since it doesn't seem like a grinding surface.

    Peace River Diving Trip 3/4

    Hello everyone, Last weekend @Pooch and I headed to the river to try to dive it for the first time and I think it went really well. We really had no idea where to go so after searching the forum for a while and giving it our best shot we decided to go for it. It was a great day of finding teeth and dragging scuba gear around. It took us quite a while to find a spot we thought had potential but end the end it was a great time. Here are pictures of some of the nicer teeth that I found that day. We ended up finding a ton of Tiger's and Himi's and @Pooch found 2 full megs

    Peace River Ear bone

    Found this earbone this past week - have another just like it, but never got an ID. So hopefully this time around I can! It’s 1.2”/30mm long. @Shellseeker @diginupbones @Harry Pristis

    Found this digging in Peace River, central Florida. I wondered if it could be coprolite, but if it is I was wondering from what animal. Any information would be appreciated. Other finds from the same area included dugong bone, turtle shell, mammal teeth (bison, tapir, horse), armadillo scute, and lots of shark teeth.
  13. I found these fossils in the peace river last summer and was going through them again today, but I cannot figure out what species these fossils come from.

    Peace River February 25th

    I hardly ever go out on Weekends, because it takes away the perception of solitude. But today ,made an exception... Showing off a couple of finds, and asking a couple of questions... 1st is a lower left Equus tooth, likely the m1 or m2. Equus is pretty common in the Peace River. This one is pretty small at 24 mm APL. Question:... What is you smallest APL for an Equus tooth? 2nd is a P. mirifica about the same size as the Equus tooth. Blowup of enamel.... Question. What has happened with this tooth? Is tha

    Peace River February 19th

    Went out Monday, going back out tomorrow. My last find of the day was a bear premolar. I have posted a thread http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/130052-maybe-bear/&tab=comments#comment-1405238 But needed more time to sort, take photos, etc We had gone to a spot on the Peace River that we had hunted numerous times before, knew every curve and straightaway, where we found gravel and how deep.. Sometimes it pays to go home again. We had a hurricane that moved LOTS of sand and gravel , and some of that came from the banks, and rearranged it down the riverbe

    Peace River find, I have no idea

    Was gonna toss this lil guy back but the shape captured my attention and is so interesting, I figured I'd ask if anyone knows what it could possibly be? Found in the Peace River near Charlie Creek in Arcadia Florida. Dime sized. Thank you!

    Maybe Bear

    I was out most of the day hunting the Peace River...It was a gorgeous day, getting warmer. My success started slow but picked up at the end.. I will need another thread for displaying the finds, but tomorrow maybe.. I was very pleased with this. I have only a few bear fossils. When I got home , I started searching... Not too many photos on the Internet of this tooth and I noted that few of the photos identified the tooth position ( lower, left m1) for example. This looks like bear, maybe an upper right P4 of Ursus Americanus.... but I am really guessing and need some confirmati

    Peace River Fossils -- Alligator??

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone can identify these for me. I believe they are all alligator but I do not know for certain. Thank you!
  19. So one of my very first few trips out, I found what I had originally thought was a piece of enamel from some tooth or something, and nearly a year later, that was my assumption… until my friend asks me for his opinion on something which turns out to be near-identical, found in pretty much the same area. I’m thinking fish tooth, but I might be way off. @Al Dente @hemipristis @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis any ideas? Mine: My friends:
  20. With the Peace River water depth coming down, and easing on the cooler temperatures. I was out hunting Wednesday, Friday, Sunday... basically checking various locations. It was a little cool, so I wore a 5 mm wetsuit. There were numerous places waist deep with some gravel.. A newer layer had moved in with small colored teeth, but almost everything we found were marine fossils and not very numerous. But there are always some interesting finds. A few were larger, some even complete There were a couple of types of urchin spines , one much more common

    The Return to the Peace

    So doing a culmination of my last couple trips out - and the fossil gods were benevolent these past trips! Found my first and second bison teeth, a rhino astragalus, a decently sized, very pretty Meg, and a bunch of other things! So without further ado: Starting off with the shark’s teeth - 2.3” Meg, tiny little posterior Meg, and a pathological Carcharhinus tooth: The bison teeth - both 4th premolars, but one is an upper (left), and one is a lower (right): The rhino astragalus: 2 Horse teeth, tapir tooth crown, rodent inc
  23. Hello everyone, I have gotten really into meg diving this last year to the point where I am driving down to Venice from Orlando twice a month to dive for teeth. I have started to look into getting black water diving and I am not really sure where to start. Does anyone have any rivers that are good for black water diving? I have heard talk that people do it in the Peace river and the St. Marys and I didn't know if that is where most people go or if there are other rivers people dive that hold a good amount of teeth. I don't want to sound like the guy who is asking for y
  24. Out with my most frequent hunting partner. With the cold weather turning warmer, and the river dropping, we have been prospecting sites that proved productive in previous seasons. It does not always pay off.. sometimes the locations have been covered by feet of sand or the gravel we were digging in last year has been carried downstream to parts unknown. Today was sunny and warm, we checked one location for 90 minutes followed by another and both were good (lots of small shark teeth) but not great.. We moved to a third location that we had hunted extensively in previous years and once ag
  25. So finally getting around to posting my finds from my last trip 2 weeks ago. All of this comes from a 12 foot by 8 foot section of gravel, which is… pretty mind blowing to me. To start off the finds… Tortoise! I grabbed 1 chunk of shell - there were multiple others that were equally as big and I just didn’t have the room for all of them. Found 30 tortoise spurs and 2 claws as well: (Also included with the claws are an earbone and a deer distal phalanx/claw core) Next up… 9 Glyptodon osteoderms, including 1 spike osteoderm and 2 juvenile osteoderms:
