    spiny gastropods


    Here are three fairly common gastropods from the Pliocene Caloosahatchee Beds in SW Florida. These represent two different families: Turbinellidae and Muricidae. I have duplicates of these shells.

    Holden Beach Diversity Of Fossils

    Recently got back from a trip on Holden Beach, and just WOW. Words can't describe the uniqueness of being able to find Mosasaur teeth next to Megalodon teeth. The recent Hurricane brought in many new fossils and I had quite good luck. Here are some photos of the trip, I will post a picture showing all of my best finds shortly, but for now enjoy! First, here are some of the Squalicorax pristodontus teeth I collected. These were relatively common.
  4. This was found in the Pliocene marine Pico Formation of Southern California. I'm leaning towards a marine mammal but I'm not even sure if this is bone or part of an echinoid test.
  5. I'm sure ive posted this fossil gastropod before but it must have been quite a few years ago. I've now turned it into a video. Only hard part of prepping out this snail was the rock inside the 'shoulders'. Its a short video. Enjoy https://youtu.be/Dl9yqZRlbg4

    6 small upper horse teeth

    My last time out hunting was 2 weeks ago, just before the deluge. Found some nice items including 2 small upper horse teeth, and then stopped at a hunting friend's home, where he sold me a number of fossils, including 4 additional small horse upper molars. 1st tooth I believe to be Merychippus from the Miocene of Florida. I found/donated one of these to Richard Hulbert, Florida Museum of Natural History 18 months ago. It looks like some HSBs --- Hunter_Schreger Bands are more easily discernible than on Equus teeth. Tooth #2.... One of my finds... a Nannippus I think... there

    ID help please

    Hi all! It has been a long time since i have made a post here, as i have not been out and about fossil hunting too much. Any ideas on this Fossil bone? Not looking for a specific species, genus would be great though. Miocene to early pliocene. Thanks

    Large Mystery Fossil Bones from North Carolina

    These two bones come from North Carolina, and the site they come from produces mostly Cretaceous Black Creek group material, but also some marine Pliocene and terrestrial Pleistocene material. Any help would be appreciated! The first is clearly a limb bone shaft, femur, tibia, something like that. Not sure if it's crocodilian, turtle, dinosaur, or terrestrial mammal though (I'm leaning towards terrestrial mammal). The second bone I'm thinking might be some type of hip bone, I was thinking possibly the ischium of some large croc, but I'm not sure. Could very easily be so
  9. I’d like to see the Pliocene fossils from California that people have I’ll start off with some fossils I collected from the Purisima formation at Capitola Beach A vertebra with a shell on the back A heavily eroded whale vertebra with some associated (rib?) bones Some cool clam shells Edited to add: Here’s a clam shell I dug up from the Pinole Tuff formation when I was 7. It was the first fossil I ever found
  10. Hi every! I got this one from an old Chinese medicine store, the owner said they came from Gansu province, China. After I prepared, it turn to be a mammal vertebrae bone but I don’t know exactly the species or at least the family or order. Could anyone help me to have a look about this one? Thank you guys!

    Jaw with 1 broken tooth

    Again, a fossil from yesterday.. At 1st I thought Alligator, but now , mostly unsure. The jaw is 57 mm long and 25 mm high.. The tooth piece is 7 mm diameter and 14 mm long. I will look for comments when I wake ...
  12. Stopped in Chippokes State Park on my way to Norfolk VA. It is a historical plantation on the banks of the James River. Fossil collecting is legal and encouraged , however sections of the beach are divided by rip-rap, and other sections are prohibited because of cliff falls. I collected on the beach, and in walking in the near woods ( to avoid climbing over the rip-rap) came upon a small recent hill slide. The beach picture is from the Chippokes web site taken by Sean Hazzarts, the shell hash photo shows typical beach accumulation, and the green photo shows my woody hill.

    From Wednesday. Are these all C. hastalis ? It the last one a symphyseal ?
  14. Shellseeker


    Out hunting yesterday... went by myself. Not always a wise choice. But I was a Boy Scout some eons ago. Always be prepared. Heavy rains in the area increased the flow rate. Going a little faster than I should have on the way back, caught a log 6 inches below the surface, flipped the kayak as neat as you please. Having experienced this before, everything was in the hatches or lashed down, paddle leashed, no hat ,no sunglasses. Had my sit_in kayak, so as I resurfaced , grabbed the side of the cockpit and my weight pulled it over upright... along with 10 or 15 gallons of water. The wa
  15. Taxonomy from GBIF.org. There is a complex literature about this polymorphic species. Similar leaf shapes possess the recent genera Hamamelis L., Fothergilla L., and Parrotia C.A. Meyer, therefore the term "Parrotia" pristina (Ettingshausen) Stur is used. Quote from B. Adroit 2020, p. 4 regarding the feeding traces: ”Currently, the main reference to identify and classify the plant–insect interactions in the fossil record is the ‘Guide to Insect (and Other) Damage Types on Compressed Plant Fossils’. This guide subdivides herbivory traces on leaves into seven functional feeding groups

    Crystal Tubes In Whalebone?

    Hi TFF, I've posted about this Pliocene baleen whale jaw section from Florida before, and its the gift that keeps on giving! Within the fossil there are 2 significant crystalized structures which I would love further clarity on. Are they the remanence of soft bodied organisms burrowing in the bone? Or are these structures mineral deposits similar to those found in shelled cephalopod fossils when water gets into the specimen? Or something completely different? The first specimen is 1.7/2cm in length. I would love to know your thoughts

    GMR fossils

    Went out to Green Mill run not too long ago and found some fossils that I simply couldn't identify. I have my suspicions of what they could be, but would rather get some expertise identification. Any help is appreciated!

    Vertebra ID Please

    Need some help with this vertebra ID please. Measurements on pictures
  20. Taxonomy from GBIF.org. The recent Fundulus zebrinus was originally native to the following areas: Mississippi River and Gulf Coast watersheds from northern Missouri to central Wyoming and south to the Colorado River, Brazos River, Galveston Bay, and Rio Grande (mainly Pecos River) watersheds in Texas. Mostly on Great Plains. References: Koster W. J. (1969). Fishes of the Rita Blanca Lake deposits, pp. 135-139, pl. 23. In: Paleoecology of an early Pleistocene lake on the high plains of Texas. R. Y.
