    Bone Valley Earbones

    I was out yesterday and i found an earbone. My initial impressions was that this was a Dolphin periotic, but I soon changed my mind. Over the years in hunting the Peace river, the 1st Earbone that I found was Equus, and I have found 30 at least since the first. Most hunters I discuss horse ear bones, say they either throw them back or leave them laying in a dusty drawer as unidentified bones. Usually they have a lot of wear , but here is a pristine one, with many more features than normal including some skull material. It is 45 mm Length and 30 mm width. Yesterday,

    Toebones and Earbones

    I was out again with a good friend. He has a huge garden and gifts me vegetables from time to time. Yesterday he gave a one of his earliest perfectly ripe Cantaloupes. We had some for breakfast... sweet and delicious. Once again, I saw @PODIGGER at the launch point. to discuss finds, but I left early. It was a day of few finds. Some broken Megs, a few Hemis, but I like tigers, and I did get a contortus. Some turtle, which I do not normally keep, in the center a chunk of a Capybara m3, an earbone which was my find of the day (I will separate to another fossil ID
  3. Well, I had hoped to post a long and triumphant report about what a great expedition we had and how many wonderful fossils we found. This post will not be that. After six years away, @joshuajbelanger and myself mounted an expedition to return to a secret honey-hole area we frequented many years ago when we had access to a piece of private property on a remote stretch of the Peace River. This spot produced many quality fossils and we did our best hunting here around 2014-2016. We hadn't been back since December 2016. Without access to private property, we had to launch f
  4. I am getting out to hunt about twice a week. I have interesting places to look. It turned out that @PODIGGER and I chose the same launch point, and returned at the exact same time. It was hectic stripping the kayaks , storing the gear for the drive home in time for dinner. We did have a few minutes to exchange pleasantries and discuss finds. Here are most of mine sorted for their photo. I am more interested in the fossils you don't recognize than those you do. This for example is a druzy cave inside a silicified banged up oyster. I had not se
  5. Another day hunting with a friend. Having a friend along manages to give me a sense of security during the Florida alligator mating season. It makes no sense for an alligator to mistake me for a potential mate, but I am wearing a black wetsuit. In any case , we have found a productive hunting site that seems to improve as time goes by. I has lots of opportunity to pick items out of my screen. There are some interesting fossils that I am not doing close_up photos on: Horse earbone in upper left, Gator Osteoderm, center top, I reacted when that blue triangle fell int

    A rare Saturday Hunt

    Went hunting with a friend yesterday on the Peace River. Saturday is unusual for me because of increased river traffic on the weekends. Since I can hunt any weekday, I tend to avoid weekends. We were prospecting, looking for gravel. As always interesting finds: Not too many , but interesting .. One location had agatized shell: I guess this might be the equivalent of a RucksPit Calcite Clam, but this half bivalve is pretty complete and clearly an oyster. I am not positive on the creation process but think I ought to name it a silicafied Oyster. I would like to find more of thi

    Another Silicified Seashell

    I found a Silicified Seashell last month and it turned out to be a relative rare silicified version of a pretty common Oyster from 3-4 myas. It is not like I forget interesting locations to hunt , so we returned there yesterday. Lots and Lots of little shark teeth (100s with about 25% unbroken). These all become gifts to someone. My hunting friends, my family, school kids, Paleo museums, etc. Separating those out left this smaller group of interesting fossils.... On the lower right, that was the Only Meg I found and next to it a nice Mayumbensis from the Mi

    Peace River hunt, May 2nd.

    Out today. Regular hunting partner called yesterday and wanted to go back to a spot where we had found medium to large Tigers, Duskys, and Hemis. The river was up a little bit from Saturday rains, just the way I like it. That spot had been heavily dug since the last time we were there. It happens. We were finding 20% of what it used to produce and after 90 minutes reluctantly moved upstream. One of us would find productive gravel and call the other to the new spot. Turns out I was the one to find productive gravel. Then something uncommon but not unusual occurred. I continued to

    Scyliorhinoid Shark Vertebra

    I was out hunting the Peace River yesterday, spent about 3 hours each at 2 locations, I thought my 1st large (2 inch) Kentriodontae tooth was the prize, but after looking close, that shark vert is a pretty nice find also... This Vert is 8.5 x 20 mm diameter on the back ?? edge and 8.5 x 23 mm diameter on the front edge. Is this normal and does it tell us anything... like where the vert is positioned in the shark? Scyliorhinoid .. Catshark ??? Have I been finding their teeth in the Peace River...? What are those marks on the very inner
  10. Mako or Meg fragments? Found in the peace river at brownville park. Ruler and cute bunny(happy Easter!) for size.
  11. This one has me stumped. It looks like a tiny tusk, but I think it's a small cetacean tooth of some kind. It's banged up, but the tip is intact and it has a hollow-ish root that shows layering not unlike tree rings. It doesn't look like it's been in the water very long and must have weathered out of a sandy bank recently. Does anyone have any idea what this is? Is it indeed a tooth, or is it just something suggestive?
  12. Testing out my ID skills here. I found this small fossil phalange bone. I *think* it is a deer phalange (odocoileus virginianus). Is this correct? Found in the Peace River, Hardee County, Bone Valley formation.

    Odd Wee Bone, Peace River, Florida

    Here's one of those oddballs that shows up in your sifter and seems to defy easy ID. Does anyone know what critter this comes from? Found in the Peace River, Bone Valley, Florida. Thanks!
  14. Hi Folks, Lately I have been finding a lot of small teeth in my sifter. Most are damaged and that doesn't help trying to ID them. I lack a reference collection and the necessary books to compare these to, so I am asking for some help from our resident Peace River and vertebrate experts. My photos aren't the best and I know that doesn't help, but I did my best with my dated camera and hand tremors. I have numbered the teeth in the photos and will provide notes for them below : 1) This is a complete tooth and a very attractive little guy. 2) This
  15. Here is a partial tooth I found in the Peace River (Bone Valley, FL) on a recent trip. It's broken, but the crown remains. I think it's horse, but does anyone have any idea what horse species this is, or if it's not horse, then what could it be? Thanks!
  16. This is another one that has me stumped. At first glance, it was chunkosaurus. On closer examination, it has some curvature and features that might help identification. Does anyone know what this is? The last time I found something roughly similar to this, it turned out to be part of a horse knee or something like that. Found in the Peace River, Bone Valley, DeSoto County, FL. Thanks!

    Peace River Fossil ID

    Possible ear bone maybe ? Very light weight
  19. Wanted to share a fossil hunting trip at peace river. Found some shark teeth, mastodon and mammoth enamel, a porpoise tooth, and some sort of mammal carnivore tooth. Can anyone identify it?
  20. Hi Folks, Let me say up front, there won't be any photos in this report, unfortunately. To make a long story short, I am having camera and PC issues. Next trip out, I will have this fixed. I was reluctant to write a report without photos, but I wanted to share a couple of weird finds and events that happened out on the river. We went out twice last week. The first trip was to Gardner - one of my recent favorite spots to hunt. This trip out, I grabbed a bunch of that micro-matrix material, which was my main focus for going to Gardner. We had a nice paddle and spent an en

    Peace River, March 5th

    A couple of curious finds from yesterday: First: A small osteoderm (33 x 25 mm) from a Glyptodon. The edges look like they have JUST been broken but looks are deceiving. The bottom edge is almost like a knife blade. I am curious on whether others have found/seem similar shape/size/edge and determined the placement of the osterderm on the edge of the shell. Second: What appears to be an Ungual, or toebone. There seems to be muscle/pressure marks similar to other unguals in the the 1st two photos and curious indentations (red lines) on the 3rd photo.

    Manatee or Dugong

    I was out twice this week to an area of the Peace River that I had previously hunted extensively. I did far better than I anticipated. One of my finds from yesterday is a sirenia skullcap. Impressive. Whenever I get an interesting fossil, I ask questions of myself, friends, TFF members...This fossil is interesting because it is rare in my hunting area, this one is the highest quality one I have found, looking at those fine lines and lack of water erosion. It measures 100 x 85 x 35 mm Question #1. Does this skullcap come from Metaxytherium floridanum (14 to 7 mya) or Tric

    Small toe bone

    Life is good. I go out tomorrow to the Peace River. I was also there Monday.. There were a few nice finds. I found 1/2 of a carnassial, maybe dire wolf. Seems like I found a mostly whole one in early February. Here is an interesting toe bone. Back 10 years ago , I found a Toe bone, identified as Jaguar 39 mm Medial phalanx by TFF experts. Note the recess to accomodate a retractable claw in the left of the 1st photo.. Then Monday, another toe bone, only 25.5 mm in the sieve. BIG smile. I think once again it is a Medial phalanx. So, is it a Feline M
