    Possible fossil tooth?

    Hey everyone! I will keep this one quick, I was doing some shark tooth hunting at Venice beach this past weekend (Caspersen) and found many standard teeth, but one stands out from the rest. Part of me feels like it’s just a rock but it’s had me curious ever since I found it. Things that make me wonder: - Shape of a tooth - very symmetrical - top is darker than bottom Things that make me question: - not smooth like (most) teeth - thicker than most teeth If it is a tooth, it looks thicker / blunter than a shark toot

    Bone from Venice Beach, FL

    Any ideas what this bone is? I found it on Casey Key, FL near Venice Beach. Looks modern. Thinking maybe an astragalus or epiphysis of a bone?

    Casey Key, FL Finds

    Took a day trip down to Casey Key, FL near Venice Beach. Found lots of small shark and ray teeth and some really nice shells.

    Fossil ID from Venice Beach FL

    I need help identifying what this guy is. I found it on Venice Beach in Florida. The first photo is the top view, then side views, then a lime next to it for Scale. Thanks!
  5. I have a modest collection of shark tooth fossils, some of these have been in my possession since I was a child and I can't remember how I got them. I didn't even think much about them until recently. I believe all of them came from Venice beach in Florida. Some I personally found at my last trip to Venice beach around ten years ago, some were given to me by my aunt when I was young, she frequented Venice beach and knew I loved (still do) sharks. It's possible that some of them were purchased from tourist shops along the Florida shore or even aquarium gift shops. I sorted them to t

    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
  7. In February, I sifted at the shoreline on Caspersen Beach and Venice Beach, Florida. Finds include: (left) a crab claw & 2 ray tail barbs..... plus a variety of small shark teeth and ray mouth plates.
  8. Any help anyone could provide to help identify the species of the teeth I found I would greatly appreciate it. I believe #1 is a Tiger Shark. Thank you in advance for any help.
  9. Another tooth I found at Venice FL. I’m thinking a very worn and beat up great white. I think it has character. What do you think? Thanks! -HT
  10. Good evening, I wanted to share some pictures of a fossilized whale vertebra and two Megalodon teeth that my boyfriend found while diving at Venice Beach Florida this past weekend. I have been wanting to go fossil hunting for Megalodon teeth in Florida for many years and I was blown away with his finds. I was also wondering if anyone can point out if there are any Megalodon teeth in the second picture of the various shark teeth I collected. I am hoping that there is a Meg tooth in there thank you so very much for taking the time to read my post. Any though
  11. Greetings - I have had fun with family walking the beach at Casey Key near Venice Beach, Florida. I have been enjoying the conversations here and am hoping you all may have ideas about these finds. I am posting a few overview photos - labelled - and then a few close-ups - I have more photos (larger, too). Most of these are under 6 cm (1.c which looks like a hollowed-out bone is 19 cm.). I believe 1.a ia shark's tooth and 4.c is a stingray plate. Thank you for any assistance... will look forward to your ideas - of them all the one labelled "H" (looks like some sort of claw) and item 3 "some s
  12. Hello I am setting a 4 day trip to Florida with my son to find Shark Teeth and bone mid March. He is a teenager and experienced; we did a Summer trip to Summerville, SC. We hear rains have Florida rivers and streams fairly high right now? We have never hunted for fossils in Florida; but are looking to areas along the Peace River and researched Arcadia may be a good central location? We are thinking of doing: * Day 1 - Excursion with a guide (allows us to familiarize us with the area; dos and don'ts) * Day 2 - Hit Peace River (I have some

    Venice Beach Trip Set

    The plane tickets are purchased and the sifter and 'Florida Snow Shovel' have already arrived in Cape Coral! My in-laws have a place in Cape Coral and the wife and I visit them every year in early March. Last year we went to Venice Beach and I totally got hooked on fossils and sharks teeth. Living in the Pennsylvania, I don't get down to Florida often, but I have been able to make it to Calvert Cliffs twice this winter. While I did find some very small teeth the last time (my first time) at Venice Beach, just south of the pier I am hoping to find some better spots. I am not looking for anyone

    Shark tooth or rock?

    Anyone able to help identify? Went looking for shark teeth at Venice Beach, Florida this morning. Rock or tooth?

    Hello, we spent the weekend looking for shells, and found this bone. Glad I didn't step on it while digging around, lol I'd like a little info please. Actually I'm trying to upload a pic, its saying can only be 3.95mb, it's just a regular pic
  16. Hello, I was hunting for sharks' teeth around Venice Beach/Caspersen Beach last week, and along with finding a bunch of shark teeth, I found some other fossil-looking stones. I'm not sure what kind of fossils they are, or if they even are fossils, so I'd like some help identifying them! All of them are quite hard and most are fairly shiny. #1: It has a sort of "hole" or concavity in one end which you can see from the second photo. It also has a bit of a crack on the underside, as you can see from the last photo. #2:
  17. I found this yesterday, November 26, down at Venice Beach, FL near the fishing Pier, along with an assortment of shark's teeth, coral and other interesting things. It looks like a tooth to me but I didn't think it was a shark tooth. Does anyone know what it is from? Thanks in advance! I'll have to post separate posts for different angles; I guess my files are large.
  18. Went to Venice for a bit this afternoon assuming we won't have beach days with Irma headed our way. I had some nice finds and a beach almost all to my self. Two thing I'm unsure of, one I'm assuming is part of a turtle shell, the other I'm unsure of. Thanks for any help

    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?

    Venice Beach Fossil ID Help

    Great trip with my daughter to Venice Sunday, she did pretty well. She found a good size bone and I'm unsure of what a few are. Thanks for the help in advance!
  21. We had great fun today when we went fossil hunting today! In the morning, we went to the fort drum crystal mine to search for clam fossils. We found several clams and a huge gastropod which needs prepping. The nice owner, Eddy, told me how to cut the gastropod to expose the crystals. He also gave me and my sister gifts. Mr Eddy and me with gifts. Next we went to Venice beach to search for shark teeth. We found 56 ray plates, 26 shark teeth, 1 ray barb and 6 unknown. I will be posting threads in the ID section later. Finds of the day!
  22. So I have a few days off duty and I'm planning on making a long weekend out of it. I'm starting tomorrow in Aurora, NC at the museum's spoil piles. This will be a first, so any suggestions are appreciated. Saturday I will be going to the Charelston, SC area to try my luck again. I was looking for advice in this area. I have done a ton of research with little success. I don't expect someone to give exact locations to their honey holes but advise would be great! Also anyone interested in joining would be welcome. Finally, a few days of free diving the bone yard in Venice, FL.... That's home!

    Venice beach unknowns

    I don't know what these are. Read about the hunt here: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/76282-florida-22072017-my-best-hunt-ever/ Itm # 1
  24. Here are my most recent finds from a trip out to Venice Beach. I found a large variation of color of sharks teeth and bone fragments. I also found a small piece of what appears to be some type of equine tooth, a small unknown possibly reptilian tooth, a vertebra, and some other odds and ends. This beach has a very wide variation of fossils and we had a great time hunting. A big thanks goes to JCBShark for lending some gear and giving me a piece of meg to take to my daughter! She was thrilled.
  25. I will be in Venice Beach Sunday through Friday of next week (6/11-16) for a investigations class. I am looking for some easy access locations to do some quick evening fossil hunts while I am in town. I am from Pensacola and there is not much fossil opportunities so I try to find what I can when I'm in other areas. If anyone could help to guide me to some quick spots around Venice Beach it would be greatly appreciated.
