  5. Thanks to contacts made by FF Member Megaholic (Chuck), this guy will soon be on it's way to the Department of Invertebrate Paleontology at the University of Florida at Gainesville in response to their request to have it for analysis and display. . Abertella dengleri Echinoid- Late Miocene, Peace River Formation - Hardee County, Florida, USA Thanks Chuck for making that connection for me.
  6. About 2 weeks ago I headed out to the Peace river with my kayak, screen and shovel and decided to launch at a new bridge and take a long paddle into the middle of nowhere. I paddled for over an hour before I spotted a downed tree on shore with big chunky gravel stuck in the roots and around the base. The river had fine sand on the surface but I went about 50' down stream, stuck my grounding rod in and at about 12" deep felt chunky chunky goodness. I tied up the yak, grabbed my trusty shovel and began to excavate a 6' hole. It took a good hour or two to get deep enough that I wasn'

    Peace river unknown

    This little molar (or pre-molar) is the only other item I found on my Dec 19th trip to the Peace. It's pretty worn down, but I was hoping someone could make an ID for me. Thanks for the time.

    Florida Peace River unknown

    August is my month to catalog my fossils from the previous 12 months and summarize them in the required report to the Univ. of Florida so that my fossil permit can be renewed. As I grouped my stuff together, I found a few unknowns, mostly fragmentary, that I'd appreciate a little help with. This first one, I think, is pretty cool looking and appears to be complete. I'm not going to mess with the fragmentary stuff, since most of them aren't display worthy. Here's the little cool one from front, back and side.

    Peace River Water Quality

    I've been scheduling 2 trips a week to the Peace River, when I can, to take advantage of the low water levels and the warmer than normal days. This is the 1st year, in the 6 or so I've been hunting, that the water has become a soupy green color with suspended algae instead of remaining relatively clear with heavy algae growth on the bottom. The last 2 trips, I came back with what I thought might be a little heat rash on the earlier, and then a pretty broadly scattered rash on my trunk. I'm a little concerned about going back, so I went to the Santa Fe for a break, where the water was warm tea
  17. I spent most of another day in a spot I've worked the last 4 or 5 times out, but had only moderate results this time. It's getting very hard to dig since the water is still cold, I'm wearing a 5 mil wetsuit and I'm up to my neck in the hole with not bottom showing yet. I wore an 18 pound weight belt for much of the day to keep me on the bottom and give me some leverage with the shovel. It's very tiring, but I really like the spot because the gravel is big and there is tons of bone mixed in......just not much in good shape......yet. Anyway, with guests coming next week for a little trip, I want
  18. Hi all! As requested by quite a few people, here is the report of the Fossil Fair in Ede, which happened today (Saturday 11th of March 2017). It was a very fun fair with many people, several different organizations were present, a building filled with fossils from all over the world, and tons of amateurs and professionals buzzing around. It was quite busy, but the ambiance was great, or "gezellig" as we would say in Dutch. There were many fossils for sale, some at very low prices, and there was also quite a lot of trading. Here are some pics of the fair:

    Fossil Show: Ede 2017

    Hello all fossil-friends! (I'm not sure whether this is in the right thread, if it's not I'd love the admins to put it where it's meant to be .) Anyways, I wanted to tell everyone that their is a big fossil market at Ede (Netherlands) this weekend, and that I would love you to come! It is organized by the Paleobiologische Kring van Nerderland/Vlaanderen (Paleobiological Group of Netherlands/Flanders), the Werkgroep Fossielen Wageningen (Workgroup Fossils Wageningen), and the famous Fossiel.NET (basically a Dutch version of TFF); many other organizations/museum
  20. I've been working a hole for the last 3 visits to the river, more because it's a nice change of scenery for me, than because of the results. I seem to bring back more things I've never seen before from this spot than any other I've been digging in recently. First of all, here's the take for the day......1 very nice meg, 3 decent megs and the rest. I was wondering if this bone might still be identifiable, even though it's pretty beat up. The back side is now worn featureless so I didn't picture it. I think it looks more like a complete bone which is very badly wor
  21. A friend and I went to the Peace River yesterday to enjoy the 80 degree weather and although we found little, I brought back this phalanx that looked carnivorish. It's about 1/4 inch longer and quite a bit thinner than previously identified Jaguar/Dire wolf phalanxes, so I wondered if anyone here might have a fairly confident idea of to whom it belongs. Appreciate the time.

  24. Once again it's time for the Paradoxides to dust off the top hat and ring in the new year. I'm eagerly looking forward to another great year of spectacular fossil treasures at TFF. Happy New Year 2017!
  25. Ladies and gentlemen- The new year is coming upon us. I bet you need a fossil themed calendar to hang in your office/lab/bathroom etc. I have just the thing. For the past ten year almost, I have put together a fossil prep calendar. This is a fund raising project for SVP's Preparation Grant. Money raised from the sales of this calendar go towards improving fossil preparation by granting cash to a museum or person who proposes a project. This year the winner was a young lady from Egypt who will be coming to the states to learn some prep techniques that she can bring back to her museum
