  1. What type of tooth is this?

    Found this yesterday in the water at Caspersen Beach, FL. It looks like none of the other sharks’ teeth (or assumed sharks’ teeth). Found using a metal sifter. Any idea on what type it is or age, based on color (not brown or black)?
  2. Hey everyone! I realize I have not been active here for quite some time, but fear not - I have been actively fossil hunting! Cris and I have gotten into the habit of filming our fossil hunts lately, I know you have already seen some of his videos. So I'd like to go ahead and share mine as well! We had an insane shark tooth hunt during Shark Week, the perfect time! We also got a little strange, which you'll see. Link is below! It feels good to be back, and I look forward to posting actively again! https://youtu.be/APjz9FBaSOk
  3. Mammal tooth of some sort

    I would appreciate any help with an id for the tooth I found while on a peace river dig. I haven’t been able to find anything that looks close and thought someone at sometime might have come across something similar. Thanks in advance,
  4. 2 main holes I hit were pretty hit or miss, but overall I'll count it as a W. 1st spot not much ocassional small teeth, biggish bull shark tooth, moved further down. Found a partial meg (complete one still eludes me but can't think of greater motivation to move tons of gravel), small mammal molar (that seems to be from a small bear) & what I think is a manatee molar (low left on full pic) + a nice big horse molar. Disheartened a bit I hadn't found any super great snaggles (my fav) but before I left I found this beaut Nice day, no shortage of friendly doggos on the river, yeah. Not bad for not having a 'yak, which I guess is a curse & a blessing in a way Full haul below
  5. I'd like to go today but am also free tomorrow
  6. Bone id..long shot?

    This morning I stumbled on this worn bone and it's not the usual rib or limb bone I often see. I know it might be a long shot but I thought I'd put it out here with fingers crossed hoping someone might have an idea.
  7. First dolphin tooth

    Once again I'm happy to say I am able to spend a few months hunting for fossils in Florida instead of hunting for my hat and gloves in Minnesota. I recently had the opportunity to go on a Peace River dig with Fred Mazza of Paleo Discoveries. After about fifteen years of collecting on the beaches and in the river I managed to find my first dolphin tooth. Shoveling in the river beats the heck out of shoveling snow.
  8. Megatooth Shark Comparison

    From the album TEETH & JAWS

    Occasionally, teeth of the two sharks, Carcharocles megalodon and Carcharodon carcharias, may be confused for one another. Ususally, this is a problem with a worn or otherwise damaged tooth . . . especially where the teeth of the two sharks may be found together, as in Florida's Peace River (C. carcharias teeth are uncommon in the Peace River). Megalodon and the great white shark now are generally believed to be not closely related.

  9. Tilly Bone Fossil

    From the album BONES

    Fossil fish vertebra from the well of a gun-pit in a phosphate mine, Polk County, Florida. This vertebra exhibits hyperostosis, an overgrowth of bone, found mostly on the vertebrae and internal spines of some fish. The perforations alongside the centrum may represent what's left of the neural and haemal canals of the vertebra.

  10. Here are a couple of periotics (ear bones) from small, toothed whales from the Miocene-Pliocene of South Florida. I don't know more than that about them, so I'm hoping that someone here will have an identification. Such periotics are found from time to time in the Peace River, but they are not well known to collectors. And for comparison:
  11. What Are These Strange Bones?

    What are these strange bones from the Peace River? I came across these two in a flat of Plio-Pleistocene bones I was sorting yesterday. I thought they must be two of the same species . . . until I started to photograph them. Now, I am not so sure. I formerly dismissed such bones as sea robin 'noses' or rostra . . . common and not all that interesting. But, these bones cleaned up to be quite interesting (or maybe my attitudes have shifted). I can't find much about fish rostra, so I am not sure of any identification. (Years ago, someone at the FSMuseum told me these were sea robin fossils.) NOT sea robin Family TRIGLIDAE Prionotus sp. Remains of these fish are found as fossils from Late Pliocene to Late Pleistocene, according to Hulbert's book. I have encountered a live sea robin in the Peace River. But . . . are these rostra sea robin remains? Are they even fish rostra? Tell us something about these bones . . . or just share your Peace River fish stories. Edit: These bones appear to be the frontal bones ('noses') of porgies or seabream. Order PERCIFORMES Family SPARIDAE Rafinesque 1810 Hulbert report four or five different genera of Sparidae from the Plio-Pleistocene of Florida.
  12. tapir canine

    From the album TEETH & JAWS

    Order PERISSODACTYLA . . . . Infraorder TAPIROMORPHA Superfamily TAPIROIDEA Family TAPIRIDAE . Tapirus veroensis This is the most common Pleistocene tapir. It was about the size of the living Neotropical Tapir. Pleistocene tapirs are more common finds in Florida than elsewhere. The canines are much less common to find than cheek teeth. The teeth in this image are in unworn to slightly-worn condition. (This image is best viewed by clicking on the button on the upper right of this page => "other sizes" => "large".)

  13. I've spent quite a bit of time trying to identify these little things but since you all are so great, I thought I'd post them and get it figured out much faster. My son found the smaller one here in Beaufort, South Carolina and I found the larger one this weekend in Fernandina Beach, Florida.
