    Mammal identification

    Today we went to a spot that we don't go often, it started raining about 50 minutes in (we should have checked the weather) but we got quite a few fossils including these unidentified ones (sorry about the picture quality on some of them) the first I believe is a gator tooth with root, the second set, I have no idea about, the 3rd might be dugong, the forth and 5th I think are deer, the sixth I think is tapir, the seventh Is some sort of rodent and the last I believe is a snake vert.

    50 minute fossil hunt

    Today we went to a great spot we don't go often. The first 50 minutes were great, then it started raining,I can't imagine what I would have found if I got to stay a good 3 hours. We got two gator osteoderms, including the smallest one I've ever seen (below the large one) some gator teeth. Multiple mammal teeth (follow link below message to get to the ID message) horse frags, gar scales, turtle shell, and other weird fossils. Again, please go to the ID chat just to check if you can help.

    Peace River Visit X 2

    Out to the Peace River, FL twice this week, Tuesday & Saturday. Was busy tracking down an ID for what turned out be an eagle or large hawk toe bone. With that done and a trip out yesterday I thought I would combine the two visits into one trip report. The weather was perfect both days with temps in the mid 80*s. The water flow and level were excellent and visibility great. It was easy to see the bottom and anything laying there. A shot of the morning paddle to the dig site - Got there and started digging with the first good find being the phalanx or toe bone m

    Peace River Visit

    Got back out to the Peace River, FL yesterday. I usually try and get there by 0800 AM but with the cold overnight temperatures this week I delayed my start time until closer to 0900 AM to let the sun rise and warm things up a bit. I was glad I did so as I found the sun high enough to be warming up the spot I had targeted for the day. The morning was mostly a lot of the usual small miscellaneous shark teeth. I did find one small, and I mean small, alligator tooth. A partial small shark vert also turned up. Rounding out the morning were several nice Hemis, upper and lower, a nice size part
  5. Got back to the Peace River Fl yesterday. When I set off in the kayak at 0820 am it was breezy and a chilly 53* F. The wetsuit was definitely needed if I was going to stand in the river all day. The water was crystal clear and with the sun out it made for a beautiful day. I took some photos after the sun had risen enough to clear the overhanging trees and light up the water. I got back to the gravel bed I have been working on my last few visits and found it undisturbed. Its not off the beaten path and with the water so clear I had feared others might have not
  6. My second time out to the Peace River, what a glorious peace of land. The air temp was mid 80s, dew points in the low 60s and water temp was perfect. My wife of 37 years accompanied me this trip, and yep, she found a complete Meg. Not huge, but near perfect. and one photo of the gulf, where we spent 4 fabulous nights last week .

    Help me with this jaw

    Can anyone help me identifying this jaw, unfortunately the selle can't send me a photo of the chewing surface. I can't understand if it is a boar jaw or a tapir jaw. I'd like to hear your opinion
  8. This was an epic trip. We found at least seven extinct species, including dire wolf!! This was quite honestly my favorite trip ever. Mastodon, giant armadillo, alligator, and so much more. Hope y'all like it! If you liked it, feel free to like and subscribe Best, FL Man https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XbXFFMJ3t2w
  9. An article that talks about fossil remains dated 47mya in the former coalfield of Geiseltal in Saxony-Anhalt about how ancient horses shrank and how ancient tapirs showed the opposite in that they got bigger. https://www.technologynetworks.com/tn/news/exceptional-fossils-give-window-into-mammalian-evolution-332518 Ring et al.

  10. I have a Vero Tapir foot bone fossil. The fossil is in very good shape with very few cracks, being not terribly old since Vero Tapir's went extinct some 11,000 years ago, (11,000 years seems pretty old to me though!) I am pretty new to fossil hunting, so I was curious whether or not it is necessary to put some kind of preserving agent on it? Are there any advantages or disadvantages either way? I appreciate any help!
  11. Friends of ours had their daughter come to visit for the holidays. She likes to rockhound and collect crystals and pan for gold back in the Seattle area where she lives and was eager to try the experience of fossil hunting in the Peace River. The weather (and river level) was looking good till a few days back when that huge mass of unstable air over the southeastern US unleashed torrents of rain. In fact, we were kidding Kelly that it was her presence here that brought the Seattle weather. She had a red-eye flight into Fort Lauderdale airport a few days back and on the morning of her arrival,
  12. Since the weather is (finally) behaving and the Peace River water level has now stabilized at a depth where South Florida fossil hunters can get in and get their hunt on, Tammy and I found a free day in our busy schedule and planned a day trip to Arcadia to try our luck on the Peace River again. If we do not drive over and spend the night in a local hotel, hunting on the Peace River involves an early morning wake-up call at the painfully early hour of 3:00 AM. We're all packed up and leaving the house at just around 4:00 AM with a long quiet drive through mostly empty highways--up the Florida

    Rockshelter tooth

    Good afternoon, I found this tooth today digging in a rockshelter near lake Travis. The tooth was found amongst other deer and bison bones about a foot deep. I've read Texas rockshelters in this area house animal remains from roughly 25,000 years ago.

    Florida Pleistocene Fossil Hunt!

    Hey everyone! My girlfriend Ashley and I got out to hunt some Pleistocene sites a couple days ago. There are also Eocene sharks teeth mixed in. The rivers are all pretty high, so we went to some bank hunting sites I have found over the years. They definitely did not disappoint! We found a Tapir jaw section, horse tooth, some pretty big alligator teeth, and a variety of other fossils!
  17. I've been wanting to get back to the Peace River since I first ventured out this fossil hunting season back in early February. Back then the water was over a foot higher and much colder--the air temps were in the mid-60s and the water was a chilly 62F. I decided this was a good day to test my new chest-high waders. I ventured into a spot I like to visit when I'm on this section of the Peace as it has some pretty coarse gravel. While it doesn't produce a lot of finds they tend to me more interesting. I waded out to the small patch of gravel at the leading edge of a sandbar but before I could re
  18. Hi! Its been awhile since I posted so I've accumulated several new specimens. They are all from a beach in the Savannah River. Many are broken... A - Giant Beaver Tusk B - Elephant Ivory piece (note the schreger pattern) (Is there a way to know the species?) C - Capybara D - ??? E - Canis ??? F - Tapir ??? G - ??? H - ??? I'll post more in a second part... Any comments are greatly appreciated!!!
  19. These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing. MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source. If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at joegallo1954@gmail.com and I'll be happy to send it to you. Please note that this list will be updated continuously as I find more available resources. All of these files are freely available on the Internet so there should be no copyright issues. Articles with author names in RED are new additions since June 14
  20. Hello gang! So we are being mildly inconvenienced at the moment while hurricane Irma comes/goes by so I'll try to post a few photos from my phone while we still have backup power and lights. Sorry for the lack of scale on some shots..editing capabilities are limited. First up..a worn Sarasota cnty Fl plio'pleistocene whale bulla that really has that human ear look to it that called me. Edit....guess I have got a file size limit prob so this may be embarassing...uggh

    Possibly tapir tooth?

    We found this tooth diving off Venice - the captain thought it might be from a carnivore like a direwolf. I thought perhaps it is a tapir tooth - the top looks right but the root is throwing me off. Thoughts?

    Possibly 2 partial Jawbones With Teeth

    I have 2 more finds that look similar to a partial jaw with teeth I found previously but both are larger pieces. These two look like tapir teeth of a previous piece and I would like to confirm they are from a tapir. They were found in the same area near Houston Texas. Thanks you all for your help.

  24. A beautiful Friday on the Peace River yielded a baby mammoth tooth! The photo is the top chewing surface, still sandy from the river. I also found my best river meg to date, 2" on the diagonal, and 2 tapir caps which, as a newbie fossiler, exactly doubles my collection of tapir caps. Thanks to the guidance of Shellseeker and another esteemed fossil friend who granted guidance and access to a more remote location.
