  1. Shorter trip report today - but I caught my white whale! Or in this case - blue shark. Finally got a Meg over 3 inches, and it is perfect. Anyway: Megs and Frags: 3 Hemis 1.5” or over and a lower Mako: A pathological, double-tipped bull shark tooth (First ever pathological tooth I think.): And a really pretty piece of turtle shell, chunk of tusk, a tarpon scale, an Equus astragalus, and a tridactyl horse ectocuneiform (pretty sure on that last one, tentative ID):
  2. (Decided to do a bit of a different trip report this time - actual story to it, so it’s a bit longer. If you want to just see the finds, skip to the end!) So @Done Drillin and I had been individually exploring a certain tributary and sharing spots along it, and decided we should meet up and explore together yesterday. So as I’m bringing some of the stuff down to the water to load into the kayak, I see a little something poking out of the water. Should’ve taken a pic, but it ended up being this: A partial, left P4 Dire Wolf tooth. So I’m already thinking… well,
  3. So couple ID’s needed from today… 2 partial carnassials that I’m 99% certain on but would like confirmation, and 1 partial canine that I’ve got no clue on. Partial carnassials - Dire Wolf, right? It’s gotta be: And the canine - found in the same spot as one of the above teeth, but I don’t want to make any assumptions, so… @Shellseeker do you think THIS one could be smilodon? But really - big cat? Seems too blade-like for ursid or canid, but I could be totally wrong.
  4. Meganeura

    Peace River bone ID

    So was sorting some older fossils and came across this one - originally I had it in my “random bone bits” drawer - but it looks relatively complete albeit somewhat worn. My initial thought was something similar to an astragalus - some kind of joint. Wondering if an ID might be possible. @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Brandy Cole
  5. Last IDs needed for the day - 2 claw cores, a bone I’m not sure on, what I originally thought was a broken armadillo osteoderm but now is looking deliberate (especially since I found 2 similar ones), and a chunk of a vertebrae 1) Starting with the armadillo osteoderm/ear bone: 2) Then the bone: 3) The vertebrae: 4) Claw core 1: 5) Claw Core 2: Thank you very much in advance! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker @Brandy Cole
  6. Meganeura

    Payne Creek Canine ID

    Just found this canine - really bad at IDing canines, and it’s decently worn. My only guess is Tapir? It’s about 30-35mm by the looks of it.

    Hunting Florida, interesting finds.

    Out Hunting the Peace River. Very unusual low water levels for summertime. Went back to a location that I have not visited for years, with a good friend. He found some good things.. a snake / reptile vert with processes each as wide as the centrum. 2 teeth that could be pre_equus horses, a bunch of little colorful shark teeth. I have 4 finds that I both find interesting and can not identify. 1) A dolphin jaw bone (pretty special even without teeth)... Questions: Which Florida fossil Dolphin? Very small teeth on edge of jaw. What is the brownish indention line paralleling the

    Dasypus bellus osteoderms

    From the album: Florida Mammal bones and osteoderms

    Dasypus bellus - "Beautiful Armadillo" osteoderms
  9. So yet another 3 days straight of fossil hunting… I may be a little addicted. Went out with @Done Drillin and his wife on Friday, to a decent bit of success, back out on Saturday to the same spot with much better success, and then out to Payne’s creek today for more success again! So the finds: Starting with what may be my all-time fav find, a piece of deer jaw with 4 beautifully preserved teeth in it: Next from today are 2 Manatee teeth - pulled them up in the same shovel, I wonder if they’re associated? They both still have parts of the root
  10. Meganeura

    Peace River distal phalanx ID

    Found this distal phalanx from something just now - camera lens is foggy so apologies for the poor pics. Wouldn’t have known it was a distal phalanx had I not seen the picture @Harry Pristis posted yesterday. It’s about a half-inch in length - 17mm or so.
  11. Meganeura

    Peace River mammal tooth

    Hunting right now - found this tooth. I’m 95% sure it’s fossilized despite the color - it’s heavy and the root is solid instead of hollow. no clue what it is though - so any help is appreciated!
  12. Found this today - has a weird pattern and has what looks to be bone texture. Anyone have any ideas?
  13. I know I’ve been making a lot of these lately, so apologies for the trip spam. I’m having lots of time to go hunting, and while the water level remains low enough to hunt, I had to take advantage of it. There’ll be one more on Friday and then I’ll probably be done for August, lol. Anyway! This was another trip to find more spots to hunt, and I definitely came away pretty successful overall. Nothing too crazy, but given most of the day was spent looking for spots I’m not too mad. Now I can go right back to the spots on Friday. So to start off, Megs, as always: The nic
  14. Bunch of ID’s needed today! 1) More of a confirmation than anything else - cusp of a Gomph/Mastodon milk tooth? 2) It’s a tooth, I just… don’t know what from. 3) Not a clue. I don’t think it’s pet wood, but I might be wrong? 4) I think this is a whale ear bone. 5) These are all jaw pieces, and I think most are Dolphin, but I wanted confirmation. 1) Milk tooth cusp: 2) Tooth: 3) No clue: 4) Ear bone: 5) Jaw bones:
  15. So with the water level still being down, and @Done Drillin being in proximity of the river, we decided to meet on the Peace today! Went to the spot I had found last Thursday and had returned to Sunday, and came away with more goodies. So to start off with, here’s my first ever C. Hastalis from the River, and oh boy what a first tooth it is. 2” exactly, and absolutely PERFECT. Not worn, not broken, just stunning: Next up is this complete Dolphin tooth (Long-Beaked @Shellseeker?): 3 small Megs and fragments: T
  16. Hunting today, found a couple things I wanted IDs on! A claw core (Or at least I think it’s one), a shark tooth, and an ear bone. 1) Claw core? 2) Shark tooth - Giant Thresher? 3) Ear bone: @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker Appreciate any help in advance!

    Canine Tip

    I was out a week ago, hunting the Peace River, not finding much. Basically little shark teeth (Lemons, Tigers, Dusky, occasional Sand Tiger). I have hunted this location a number of times and the only mammal fossils I have found besides marine Dolphin are chips of Rhino tooth. I have an open cut on my leg and about to travel for a couple of weeks, so my hunting opportunities are seriously curtailed. Time to look at and identify fossils I found a week ago. Now this is the Peace River, and that means mostly float fossils, So when I initially picked this out of the screen, I thought
  18. Meganeura

    Peace River… tooth?

    Not sure what this is. Tooth? Rock?
  19. Okay currently still on the water - but have 3 ids I’d like help with while I’m here - 1) first is a Carnivore mammal tooth - it’s got no cementum. 2) Pretty sure tapir? 3) Worlds smallest Meg? 1) Carnivore: 2) Tapir? 3) Meg? thanks in advance! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker

    Bands in Marine Mammal teeth

    I recently found a distressed canine in the Peace River. When possible I really want to identify all such fossil canines. The length is 1 and 1/8 inch. At the river I seemed to see (photo #1 & #2) "latitudinal banding" which means marine mammal. At home, I note that the root end turns to the side of the canine (photos #3 & #4), a characteristic that I mostly associate with porpoise. So , what is my question: Do all Dolphin/Porpoise teeth have such banding? The only reason I do not detect it on 95% of my Florida Dolphin/Porposie fossil teeth is that the banding
  21. So went out on the peace today to a new spot. Which I will absolutely be returning to. This weekend actually, cause it won’t rain till Monday, so the water is just gonna keep dropping! Anyway, had some awesome finds today, even though my cursed Meg luck continues. So to start off with the coolest finds: We’ve got a m2? or m1 Equus horse tooth in incredible condition, there’s only slight damage to the very bottom of the root on one side: A piece of dolphin jaw sans teeth: A massive glyptodont scute: 2 Tilly bones!
  22. Was on the River today, found lots of stuff - gonna post a trip report - but wanted IDs on these 3 things: a possible coprolite, a possible tortoise spur, and a possible ear bone! @Harry Pristis @Shellseeker@GeschWhat 1) The coprolite: 2) Tortoise spur? 3) Ear bone?
  23. Finally back from the creek and had some more ID’s I’d like to ask about! Mostly teeth, and one bone. 1+2) Thresher shark teeth? Never seen this type of shark tooth before. 3) Thinking this is Carcharhinus sp. and is a just posterior tooth, but I’m not sure. It is serrated. 4) Dolphin tooth - 99% sure on this one but wanted to confirm 5) Rhino tooth fragment? Note the vertical HS bands. 6) Toe/finger bone? 1+2) Thresher Shark? 3) Not sure - Carcharhinus sp? Has serrations though the pic doesn’t show em too well
  24. Meganeura

    Peace River herbivore tooth ID help

    So literally just got back out to my spot from yesterday in the hopes of continuing with a good shovel to start off the day. First shovel of the day results in this: Dugong? Tapir? Any help appreciated! @Shellseeker @Harry Pristis
  25. So I’m currently out in one of the creeks that lead into the peace. Found this tooth - so I don’t have my scale cube currently, but I wanted to ask if I could get an id on it. It’s small - but 1000000% fossilized. Was thinking Dire Wolf since the shape is a perfect match, but I’m not sure if the size says otherwise.
