  1. Large Vert - Small Vert

    Was out yesterday -- swift current and deep water added excitement. Found a couple of Verts. One is 5-6 inches in diameter and 3 inches thick. Just the size would say whale or mammoth/mastodon, or sloth. The smaller one is 2+/1.5x1.0 inches. All guesses appreciated
  2. Houston, We Have A Problem

    It has been a great season on the Peace River. I was out yesterday just below the Powerline at Brownsville and planned on searching above Wauchula tomorrow. So much for plans -- We were caught in 2 thunderstorms and the river went up 4 feet at Payne Creek and 6 feet at Zolfo Springs starting in late afternoon. SInce I do not scuba dive, it looks like the season is closing and I, with many others, am about to go into withdrawal until November. YIKES!!!!!! Added a couple of Photos from better times.
  3. Please Id A Carnassial

    Found a week ago. for a second thought it was a broken tapir. Size is 22x23x10 mm, about an inch wide. Is the wear on the inner surface pre-fossilization? Tooth location upper/lower? Thanks for adding to my knowledge. SS UPDATED to add this link of a (similar looking?) Jaguar Carnassial found in Florida. My big concern is the size. The link indicates 1.5 inches where mine is 1 inch -- Big difference in animal size!!! http://www.paleodirect.com/lm9-006.htm
  4. Mammal Material

    A little of what I am unsure of from yesterday's hunt ... Photo strip #2 -- My fossil partner guessed that this was a mammal "apex vertebrae" (top one connecting to the skull. I guess that is why it needs a "hook". then a couple of 3 toed horse lower molars. Is there sufficient detail to ID to a specific 3 toed horse? Finally, I have no idea on how to control the ORDER of attached photos.. I attached the 3toed photo after the vert photo, but it showed up in the 1st photo position. What is the secret? Thanks for any/all responses. SS
  5. Some Fragments Are More Intriguing

    Prospecting new spots and finding some different fossils. Here are a couple. A dermal denticle that is as good as I have ever found. This one will go into my Gallery. Are dermal denticles unique to a specific species and if so, what Ray produce this one? ... and a fragment that gives me visions of exotic animals. It looks like a hook or maybe claw core. We'll see what experts say.
  6. A Survivor (And An Unknown)

    The Peace River is known for torrents in the summer and large 3-4 inch rocks in many places. It is the reason why Megs are often broken and worn. This Sting Ray barb (likely Myliobatis sp.) is a minimum of 10 kya just to be fossilized and not only survived that, but also my shovel digging it out of large gravel and dumping it unceremoniously into a sieve along with a bunch of 3-4 inch rocks. The gods were smiling. Does anyone have a picture of a complete ray barb -- mine is almost complete but may be missing a tip. Then an beat up unknown (to me). Once again fossilized and fragile. I am thinking tusk, so maybe peccary or tapir.
  7. Which End Is Up?

    I was out prospecting for new digging locations yesterday. Not supposed to do too much digging- just enough to test for the presence of fossils. I was please to find this one.. Usually I can easily tell the difference between the chewing surface and the root but on Mammoth, it is not so easy. I have showed this to a couple of fossil hunters, and I said that the bumps (left on photo #1, bottom of photo#3) are the occlusal surface and the broken edge is toward the roots. Both of them commented "Well, if you say so... So where are the roots , where is the chewing surface.. and are there easy "tells" to determine which is which when you only have one edge that seems to be UN-erupted ? Special-credit. Can you tell if this is forward or trailing edge of the tooth and possible position in the jaw? Thanks SS
  8. Ua Tiny Shark Tooth

    While I was doing my standard deep digging with a half inch screen, my grandneice was digging shallow and slow with a quarter inch screen finding those fossils that easily elude me (sand tigers, dermal denticles, and smaller fossils). Here is one of those --- measures 11mm on all sides. Is this a Meg or something else? Thanks for the input
  9. Small Mammal Tooth

    Almost missed this one. I have a guess, but will wait on someone more knowledgeable.
  10. Pinniped

    I have seen similar looking fossil teeth for Dolphins and Seals. Is there a way to differentiate?
  11. New Items That Need Ids

    I am going out 2-3 times a week... so Thursday, Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday, finding mostly stuff I recognize and a few Items I do not -- Primarily I am interested in Photos 1,2 . Initially I thought Tapir, but no -- Fossil buddy thinks predator. Then a vert (snake??) and something that looks like knee or ankle bone (horse??).. for extra credit -- Thanks for any/all responses.. SS
  12. Some Mammal Teeth

    I have been pushing hard since the rive has dropped, and have some great early season finds at different locations with different fossil partners. I had to select closeups to keep the size limit down, but would be glad to discuss any in the group picture which are the best from the last 7-8 days. Finding Makos rather than Megs, which is great when they are as nice as these. I found 3 pieces of Capybara teeth. Is the detailed one a complete tooth? Some great horse teeth, one worn beyond belief. I recognize deer tines -- see 2 of the 3 in this group photo, but one of the tines seems to be roughed up enamel -- Could it be croc? Then the unknowns -- I have no clue , but one is my very FIRST tooth attached to a piece of jaw.. Yes, YES, YES!!!! :Bananasaur: As always , all comments appreciated ... SS
