    What type of fossil is this?

    This was found at Casperson Beach. I have no clue what it is since I am not from the area. Anything will be helpful!

    Osteoderm Identification

    Inland Venice,FL. Pleistocene material. Removing matrix from specimen that I thought was Equus jaw. Several confirmed teeth from this 2’ x 2’ square. During removal, I found this. Before I continue removing matrix, looking for identification of this osteoderm. I have also found (jet black) alligator jaw piece approximately 10’ feet away. Thanks in advance. I am also looking for feedback on whether to continue removing matrix or display fossils in matrix.

    Equus Long Bone

    Unknown long bone. Found in Pleistocene material. Inland, Venice, Florida. Specimen measures 62mm wide x 46mm. Canal in pic: L5 is 13mm wide. I have found Equus teeth in same location. Overall length of this hollowed bone is 123mm to break. I could not find an image for the joint surface to compare. I recovered the Equus tooth (EQ_L7) in the same location. It is a M2, left (upper molar). Thank you for your ID assistance. -Regards, Michael

    Unknown Vertebra in Venice

    Unknown fossil. Found in Pleistocene material. Inland, Venice, Florida. Specimen measures 65mm x 60mm. Smooth portion is 42mm high. I have found both Equus teeth and alligator jaw in same location. This item is a first for me. It appears to be possibly a caudal vertebra? Image 2 has a concave surface. Image 4 has a convex surface like it would match up with another concave surface. I think I have seen a photo of it before somewhere but I don't recall. Thank you for your ID assistance. -Regards, Michael

    Camel Teeth ... Maybe?

    Inland Venice, FL tooth recovery. Pleistocene material. Found an Equus tooth approx. 15 feet from this on recently excavated, permission granted property. I think it is a camelid tooth x 2. Can't find a close match online, gallery, or textbook. The two teeth together are 27mm wide. This is the first time I have found teeth attached to a jaw fragment. ID assistance appreciated. Looking forward to numerous fossil recoveries after storm passes by my home on Tuesday. -Regards, Michael

    Unknown Florida Vertebrae

    Found the most complete vertebrae today. Caramel brown with intact neural canal. Same location I recovered a Hesperotestudo crassiscutata carapace in January. Inland Venice, Florida. Mostly Pleistocene material here. I don't think it is a gator. Your assistance is appreciated. -Regards,

    UNKNOWN INCISOR TOOTH?

    Greetings, Unknown tooth, possible incisor. It is a lot bigger than Equus cheek teeth I have found in area. Pleistocene material, inland Venice, FL. Occlusal surface is 2cm x 3cm. Tooth is 4cm tall x 3cm wide. Occlusal surface is shiny. Large Vertebrae found 20 feet away in spoil pile. See attached photo. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Vertebrae is 5 inches x 5 inches
  8. Greetings, I have only been actively recovering fossils for the past 12 months. Fortunately, as a forensic science teacher, my work schedule allowed me to search approximately 200 days during this time. My interest in Equus is strong based on growing up on a horse farm. After finding my first Equus tooth in Venice, FL, I was hooked. I have been reading: textbooks, The Bulletin of the Florida State Museum, Biological Sciences, and numerous FF members' galleries of photos. I have learned a lot during this journey. I want to share information I have received from Dr. Richard C. Hulbert Jr

    Unknown VERTEBRAE Venice

    Vertebrae from inland Venice, Florida. Land find. 57mm wide x 75mm high. Side A to Side B measures 52mm. Pleistocene material found in this site. I found a glyptodont osteoderm in this area last week. ID assistance appreciated. I am also looking for a "handy guide" on vertebrae identification. If you can point the way that would help me with several other Vert I have recently found. -Regards Michael

    Venice Sperm Whale Tooth?

    I found my first whale tooth yesterday. Only found two cores previously. Located inland Venice, FL. This example was sheared in half longitudinally. Measures 85mm long, 48mm at widest point, 27mm diameter at point D. I find mostly Pleistocene material in this inland location. I read about only specific identifications are to the Superfamily- Physeteroidea. Anybody have other input on this tooth? My questions usually are "time period of fossil, better identification". In this inland area, I have found a half dozen bulla, a baleen whale vertebrae, and what I think is a rib. I
  14. Hello all, I'm making my fourth trip to Venice in a few weeks and I was wondering if anyone knows of any good land sites in the area, or further inland to where one might find Bone Valley teeth. Would also enjoy the company if you have a secret spot that you don't want to disclose the location of. I'll be diving in Venice a few days and maybe a trip out to Peace River, but I've always wanted to find a good Florida land site.

    Humerus in Venice?

    Greetings from Venice, FL. After viewing a recent post, I am interested if anyone can identify my recovery from Pleistocene material. I believe it is the distal end of a humerus. It was crushed by a tractor. Photo A shows the distal end. The dimensions on Photo A is 5cm wide. Height is 4cm. Photo B is anterior view. It would be great if anyone could identify what animal it may have come from. Thanks in advance. -Michael

    Venice, Fl. Imprint in phosphate?

    I am very much an amateur and have no clue what this is! Found on beach in Venice, FL. IMG_3903.MOV
  17. Greetings from Inland Venice, FL. Unusual fossil find for me. Pleistocene material. My first thought was Dugong when I picked it up, and fit great into my hand. I have found hundreds of Dugong ribs in the last year at my location. This is an unusual one due to the smooth texture. It measures 4.5 inches long by 2 inches wide. Density is 2.51 g/cm3 if you are interested. Photo labeled "4" shows odd texture. Closeup attached. FYI: Indian artifacts confirmed to 10,000 B.C. recovered within 10 miles. I have not previously recovered any Indian artifacts. I'm looking for feedback. Thanks in a

  19. Greetings from Inland Venice, FL. Pleistocene material. This is an unusual fossil find for me. It measures 6 inches long by 3 inches wide. It is 3.8 inches in height. Two different sides are flat. Photo A: overall image. Multiple images show worn black fossils embedded in relatively smoothed, compacted silica. This item was recovered from sand/clay, calcium carbonate material in hole approx. 10 feet deep. There were no other specimens with this type of composition recovered. FYI: Indian artifacts confirmed to 10,000 B.C. recovered within 10 miles. I have not previously recovered any

    Super Sized Tilly Bone?

    Supersized Tilly Bone? Looks like a Large Gummy Bear. Do you agree on the fossil? Not dense at all. Looks like a sample I have collected already...but this one is very large. 7 cm long, 4.2 cm wide This is a good reference piece. -Michael

    Atypical Snaggletooth Shark Tooth

    Unusual Shark tooth. Inland, Venice, FL. Pleistocene material is common. Heavy serrations both sides. Bulbous protrusion. Shaped like a lower tooth but serrations on both sides. Tooth is 31mm long and 20mm wide. Is this an odd shaped Hemi upper or from a different species. -Regards, Michael

    Shark Vertebral Centra ?

    Inland Venice, FL. Typical Pleistocene material in spoil pile. First possible shark vertebrae I have found after hundreds of searches here. 5 cm diameter, 2 cm thick. Is it shark? Can an age/species able to be determined with only 1 vert? I also found (6) Lightning Whelk shells in this pile. thanks -Michael

    Venice Osteoderm?

    These two pieces came out of a dump truck with older Pleistocene material in Venice, FL. Found 5 Lightning Whelk shells in this load. Large piece of shiny osteoderm has other bones in the matrix. I have not found this type of piece before. ID welcomed. - Michael
  24. Found this fossil inland, Venice, FL. Early Pleistocene material. I believe this is perhaps tortoise shell showing spinal attachment point to vertebrae. Piece. Measures 17cm x 13cm x 5cm thick. All photos taken at 1x. I look forward to reading your remarks. - Michael
  25. Inland Venice, FL. First guess was Meg. Many others found in 100 yards of this one. Someone suggested : Carcharocles chubutensis most fossils are Pleistocene in the area. The angle of the tooth is not like most megs I find here. Advice welcomed. - Michael
