  1. I was out Monday unsuccessfully looking for inverts, but came back with a ton of shark teeth and a few of the more common vertebrate finds. would appreciate an ID id anyone would like to take a chance. The overall length is 101 mm. I'm thinking a dog sized animal but have no clue. Thanks for the look see!
  2. I wondered if there were enough characteristics left on this very worn molar to identify who it belongs to. From the Peace River, Zolfo Springs area. Appreciate the time.
  3. I lucked into this beauty while excavating a limestone pit in the Peace river bed looking for Miocene invertebrates. Is there any chance of identifying it's species from the location found and the size? @Harry Pristis ?
  4. The attached photo shows material that seems to be fairly common in areas of the Peace River that have allot of deteriorated limestone and limestone slabs.I don't think it has any recognizable structure suggesting it is the result of some life form. Just generally a botryoidal shape. Does anyone know what it is or have any experience with it?
  5. Did not do well yesterday with the additional foot of water due to the storm, but found this little osteoderm. I don't think it's tortoise because it hasn't got the perimeter feature at it's base and it has a much more dense outer layer. Has anyone seen something similar before? I have several sloth osteoderms, but this doesn't have a similar texture to those either.
  6. I went back to Zolfo Springs again yesterday to make use of the 94 degree day before the predicted cold front and rain came in. Nobody else on the river as the day was supposed to be pretty windy, but it held off almost until I was on my way back to the truck. Decent results with a bison incisor, nice little meg and mako and a cool little canine. The canine is about the length and contour as a domestic house cat and a little thinner and less curved than a raccoon. Nice day out.
  7. Went to Zolfo Springs, Pioneer Park to put in for a trip on a very pleasant 92 degree Easter Sunday. Lots of people out, but most were doing the social distancing thing......many were not. As usual I was alone for most of my time on the river and it did turn out to be a rather productive day. Horse, camel/llama, gar, gator, Giant Tortoise, turtle, tons of shark teeth and the most interesting finds, 2 unusual osteoderms (top center in the picture). Using the 1/4" screen again to save my right arm muscles, slows down the process, but the tiny stuff makes the day feel more productive than shoveli

    March 17th, 2020 Peace River

    I've spent the last few trips Socially separating on the Peace at Zolfo Springs. Yesterday I found some pretty interesting stuff. I've switched back to a 1/4 " screen for a while because the 1/2" and the extended shovel handle was killing me. As a result, I've gotten a ton more small shark teeth, but have been able to process a lot less material. This was the total take for Tuesday. The invertebrates are the most interesting I think. In the lower left corner is a juvenile Abertella aberti with some minor damage but an intact perimeter. I've got a question about the se

    Giant Tortois Osteoderm?

    I found the item on the right a couple years ago and wrote it off at the time as just a unique Giant Tortoise osteoderm. I'm having 2nd thoughts now that I've found another one yesterday when digging at Zolfo Springs. The newest one (on the left) is still wet so it shows what looks like a Fossa or a Facet on the underside more clearly than the one on the right. Both display (or would have displayed) a very definite ridge down the centerline. So, just a different osteoderm, or something different?

    Peace River Unknown

    Last week I went to a little spot in the Peace that I can dig at high water levels. Found very few things, but wondered if anyone has an idea of what the little bone in the lower left corner of the picture is.
  11. I took a rather short trip to Zolfo Springs on the Peace River today to prospect for a trip with a guest on Tuesday. I dug in a nice deep limestone hole for a while and came up with this recent find, which I thought might be coyote, but doesn't match the scull that I have. Anyone have any guesses on what it might be? I'm figuring coyote and dog are out.
  12. These 2 items were the only finds of interest on my trip to the Peace yesterday. I'm assuming the vert is mastodon or mammoth, but the other little item is a stumper. I feel like I've seen it before somewhere, but I can't place it. One wing is broken, but I couldn't toss it back before finding out what it is. I'll post the 2nd view in the reply.
  13. First request for information after a few weekends hunting the Peace River in Florida. Any help with identifying if these are fossils or other? Very curious on the amber, translucent items, the largest is hollow. Thanks! -Mark
  14. Beautiful day to be out and so much nicer without a wet suit. Couple of interesting things today, this find is my favorite. !/2 gallon Clorox bottle issued from 1940 to 1944. Pretty good shape for being in the river for so long, but I was in a pretty deep hole and it was pretty far down. The next best is another complete Abertella dengleri Echinoid. This one has more matrix on it, but still pretty cool. I'll be asking Roger Portell at UF whether he's interested in another example in their collection. (I should have waited until it dried completely before taking the pi
  15. Donated to the Florida Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida at Gainesville Soon to be named Brissopsis sp. this specimen likely a Paratype Late Miocene, Peace River Formation Hardee County, Florida
  16. On a trip to the Peace River on November 28, 2012 I found a pretty nasty looking sea biscuit, but it has been the only one of it's type I've found in the Peace in 7 years of digging it so I've always held on to it without thinking about it too much. Since working with Roger Portell at the U of Florida on the donations of 2 Abertella deneleri sand dollars, I thought maybe I should ask him whether it was interesting and if so, would the museum like it. Here is his response: Yes, very interested in that specimen as well. It belongs to the genus B
  17. This has been a pretty disappointing year so far, with the season delayed by high water levels and then very poor results on trips to the Santa Fe, Withlacoochee and Peace when I finally could get out. This last Tuesday yielded reasonable results which I'm thankful for since the trip was a scouting expedition in preparation for a Christmas Eve trip with @Cam28 and @Max-fossils. Most of the vertebrate finds are pretty typical. My favorite find, though, was this sand dollar that looks like it had been dropped into the river after being professionally prepped.
  18. We are a group of geology majors (with various passions of paleontology) that will be down on the Peace next week for 5 days in the river. Were bringing a kayak and all the screens etc... and are going to rent another canoe once we get there, but were still trying to decide exactly where to head. Its been a couple years since I was there(other two are newbies to Florida fossils) and we are thinking North of Zolfo Springs? Anyone going to be out on the river March 5th through the 9th?
  19. I have been trying to identify this one from books & forums, so far no luck. Very curious what this is. It's about the size of a dime.

    Peace River Sites Now?

    I know the Peace is still slightly high for the best fossiling and clarity, but we still may give it a go tomorrow as we have the day off. Any input on the best spots to go when the river is still a bit high? We will likely take kayaks. We usually go to Wauchula, Gardner River Rd, Thousand Trails....head up to Charlie via kayak....any thoughts welcome!!!!! And, if you think we'd be wasting our time and the river is too high to sift in general let us know that, too! Seems it could be on the cusp!
