  1. Osteoderm, but from what?

    The boney armor plates that I have found have either been giant armadillo or Glyptodont or Alligator. This one I found years ago doesn't look like any of those, but maybe it is just from a different area of the animal? Thoughts? Thanks!
  2. big brook cervical vertebra

    My daughter found this at Big Brook NJ. It was loose at the bottom of the stream. I don't think it is a cow, horse or deer, but it could be pleistocene. I just joined the forum, and hope this works. Thanks
  3. Dugong or Manatee

    This is an excellent find, but I am unsure how to identify it and I also wanted to share the moment. Why excellent? Any fossil tooth with complete roots is rare and any Manatee or Dugong molar in any shape is rare for me. In 10 years , I have found 5 or 6 of these in Peace River hunting. So my question: Can a Trichechus manatus molar be differentiated from a Metaxytherium floridanum molar and , if so, which is this fossil? Details : Crown height - 45 mm, Crown length - 26 mm; Found in Peace River Watershed. Thanks for all comments and suggestions!!!
  4. Sm raptor claw

    I was introducing my great_nephew Jake to the Peace River, he foscused in "small, tiny" fossils and found some good stuff... One was shark teeth, and the other a claw. looks birdlike to me so calling on @Auspex to help ID or just speculate. The 6mm shark teeth: The 7 mm claw: All suggestions and comments appreciated.
  5. 2 Canines

    Continuing a streak of good luck. Recently, I was digging in a semi-productive location and a small canine showed up. I recall that it was the last fossil I noted while searching the sieve. An interesting find. Not a clue of what it might be. At 40.5 mm, little too large for small mammals like raccoon. I did see the curious bump at the base of the root. Late in the day from the same spot, a 54 mm canine missing half of its tip. Too small for Jaguar. I have a 2.9 inch canine that looks a lot like this one. All comments, suggestions, identifications appreciated.
  6. Saturday at Peace

    Saturday is the day I am least likely to go fossil hunting but yesterday was the exception. Another gorgeous day, sun shining, birds chirping.. I also had some interesting finds ... Some equus teeth and mammoth chunks upper left, bones upper right and a few dolphin bullas under the bones. Nothing special like tusks or large Megs. The tiny tooth lower center is a Mako: One of the mammal bones is a 1.5 inch cubonavicular, a little larger than deer (I think) may be Bos because it is not river worn.. Then a 1.25 inch small canine, I love finding canines... Found a bunch of gator teeth, including these... odd longitudinal lines, Finally this 1/2 long inch molar. There is lots of diversity and variations on the Peace. It has been collecting for millions of years. Every day is an adventure. I am so lucky to have this hobby, and this location.
  7. Dire Wolf Skull

    I tend to track some high end auction sites that deal in (sometimes) complete fossil skeletons. One of these is offering a Dire Wolf Skull. Since it is a for sale site, I do not link to it. However, the seller does provide DETAILED Photo enhancement capability, and the writeup is excellent. So, TFF forum rules, can I cut/paste the photos and the text to this TFF thread for all to evaluate? This would certainly fall into fair use of the materials, even if copyrighted, which I doubt. Dire Wolf. Canis dirus. Pleistocene. Nodaway River, Page County, Iowa, USA I think I have a piece of this but not that big of a piece...
  8. A Large Toe Bone

    I found this bone in the same spot that I found a Mastodon Tooth yesterday , which obviously does not mean a lot.. It is a toe bone and decent size , about 2.5 inches. Hopefully someone will recognize.
  9. Well, I think I am done. I was out on Memorial day. The water was waist to chest level. I rarely go back to back days so Wednesday the 30th was possible. I had an interesting morning -- see below. 6 inches up was barely hand-able... We left a little after noon. Did find some neat fossils: This place is worth a return visit. Interesting open cavity at the end of the root. Very fragile #s 2,3,4. I know what these are... because I have seen them previously. I find thousands of the Asian clam ,an invasive species in the Peace River but I am hoping that @MikeR can identify this salt water clam from an earlier age. Then a Sawfish or Shark vert which are relatively uncommon. Finally, one I am unsure of: I have seen those "eyes" on the inside of a turtle shell... so I think that is what this is, although the shape is odd. See this thread. http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/71000-prospecting-trip/. This season started off slow and started picking up in December. I will miss going to the river, but it gives me time to sort , catalogue, and pay attention to other important facets of living. Its all good.
  10. Multiple IDs Requested

    Beautiful Day. Cold in the morning, but warmed up as the sun came out.. Same with the fossils. Initially , only small shark teeth,, but later (deeper) lots of interesting stuff. 1st, Can we tell by size whether this is Paleolama mirifica or Hemiauchenia macrocephala . Not sure but maybe there was a jaw down there. These seem to be 2 M3s, with exact similar color patterns. A Vertebrae... Dolphin or maybe Armadillo ??? and then this...I know WHAT it is.... a walnut...but it is hard like a rock and clinks!!!! Can a walnut fossilize? Whether or not it is a fossil, what happened to the shell? Just sharing an unusual find? Thanks for any/all comments...
  11. Small Tarsal or Carpal

    This is the time that my northern relatives like to seek warmer weather, so I am juggling guests, traveling , and fossil hunting... I was out Sunday and not again until today.. Once again, I went to a location that I had thought was dug out years ago, including lots of trips by me. Here is a group photo of the "best" finds... A great Butterfly osteoderm, 2 chunks of fossilized wood, a camel_llama tooth without roots, a nice 33mm Meg and a tarsal or carpal from an unknown (to me ) mammal. Extra credit for identifying what type of tree provided the wood. The tarsal/carpal is 32x24x13 mm. I am used to seeing Equus tarsals or carpals. This one seems really small and maybe is not equus. All comments, suggestions appreciated. Some more photos:
  12. Puzzler

    Okay, any help with this is much appreciated. I'm inclined to write this one off as something insignificant or perhaps even a rock. However, the symmetry makes me think it is something more than that and drives me to consult the enthusiasts and experts here. If it weren't for a small broken section (most noticeable on the "front view" picture) and an area of attached matrix (most noticeable on the lower left of the "bottom view" picture), this item would be almost perfectly symmetrical. There are even two small depressions evenly spaced, one on each side, facing the viewer on the "front view" picture. The dimensions are just under 3.5 inches wide (would be just under 4 inches if complete), 1 3/4 inches deep, and 1 inch tall Please let me know if you need more info or pictures or anything else. Thank you.
  13. Curious Mammal Bone

    Was hunting yesterday in the Peace River. Good friends, sunshine, LOTS of small shark teeth, a couple of nice finds and a couple of unknowns. My BEST Meg of the day was small and broken: A very complete and large (2.5 inches across) Puffer Fish Mouthplate: A JAW with 2 teeth, I think it is raccoon but would love confirmation... and then this fossil (2.75 x 1.0 inches) for identification. This bone is complete! I thought I knew what it was before looking at the end in this last photo... Now I will look for TFF and Florida experts... Interesting fossils with good friends on a beautiful day....
  14. 2017 Excursions

    Hi everyone! I Have not posted in a long time. I am going to be better and get back involved with my FF friends this new year. I have missed everyone and I am really working on getting back into my fossil excursions and specimen research. I just wanted to share a some of the adventures I had this year and I included my son on a few. He is only 7, so I can not take him to the big quarries just yet. I only went on a few trips this year, but each one was special and so full of friendship, fossil hunting and splendid moments of reuniting with friends whom share the same interest. Having my son along with me was priceless. Teaching him all about North Carolina paleontology and respect for nature has been amazing. I have been doing that with him since he was three years old. So, he already states he wants be a paleontologist or fireman. Love that! There were also beautiful discoveries of some gorgeous flora and fauna of the North Carolina wetlands and beaches. The fossils have been sparse, but just getting out in the field once in a while is the fine by me. Please comment if I have an identification incorrect and let me know about any identifications of some of the flora. Happy new Year! Libby View of part of the Castle Hayne Quarry, NC. Conus sp.

  15. Yesterday I had the pleasure of hunting with Garyc from Texas. This was the second time I've been able to hunt with him and it was a real pleasure to try and treat him to some fine Florida hunting. We haven't had as much rain as I was hoping for this week but we still managed some decent finds. My prize of the day is two part, last week I found a backpack full of giant land tortoise coming out of the side of a lake being dug and didn't think much of it tho I did grab it all to give to Calvinjenkins for his rock garden. This week walking the same spot I thought I saw a bunch of holmesina osteoderms but turns out they were turtle denticles....then the bones started coming out. I believe I got all that was there and think I have enough for most if not all of one foot. Would love if anyone could share some pics of one put together. As most Florida folks know we find tons of turtle material but is pretty rare to find anything together. Here's the foot pieced together as best I could for now. Here's the associated denticles
  16. Capybara Molar, But...

    Hunting fossils is often humbling. You think you know something , but you only find small shark teeth. That happened twice this last week -- and then today, I find one of my favorites and something unique (for me). My favorite fossil is Sloth, and this little tooth is as good as it gets. The unique fossil is Capybara -- usually I find pieces, my largest was 6 "plates". This is almost a complete tooth. But when I search "Fossil Capybara Molar" on the net, I find little this looks similar to mine with 14 "plates".. What am I missing?.. Is this NOT a Capybara Molar?
  17. Marine Mammal Verts

    Found in the same sieve/hole. Not sure they are same or similar mammal. Larger is 3.1 inches at base, 2 inches high, 2.25 inches wide. Smaller is 2x2x.5. I always think these are porpoise but the larger one is larger than I have found previously. SS
  18. 2 Inch Mammal Tooth/tusk

    I have already received 3 or 4 identifications for this one -- obviously all can not be correct. All responses appreciated. SS
  19. Peccary, Mastodon, Tapir Or ?

    With the "Baby Mastodon" TFF thread, I was searching the net for Tapir, Peccary, and Mastodon teeth and discovered this one, identified as Peccary. http://www.indiana9f...tes/Peccary.htm Very odd!!!! It did remind me of a tooth I found weeks ago and believed I had correctly identified as non-Peccary. I will not confuse the identification by adding what I thought it was... SIZE -- just on 25mm=1 inch across the occusal surface.
