  1. Identify and help with how to preserve

    I found this June 13th laying fully uncovered on the sand. The weather was horrible and the tide was very high due to the tropical storm in the Gulf. I’m very new at fossil identification and any help with identifying and how I should preserve it will be very much appreciated.
  2. Dasyatis sp. (Rafinesque 1810)

    From the album Pisces

    3mm. Whiptail stingray tooth from Cookie Cutter Matrix Sarasota County, Florida, USA Miocene/Pleistocene
  3. Isustius triangularis (Probst 1879)

    From the album Pisces

    4mm. Cookie Cutter tooth from Sarasota County, Florida, USA Miocene/Pleistocene
  4. Florida Pliocene Whale Skull

    My good friend Rob in Florida, not a Forum member, suggested that I post pics of the odontocete whale skull he found at an undisclosed location in the Pliocene of FL. He has sent pics to Smithsonian and they believe it to be Kogiopsis floridanum, a form of sperm whale described from a jaw section. He's enjoying the prep work, most of which can be accomplished without his scribe, and it appears that there are predation marks on what is left of the snout. Great find.
  5. Found on the beach on the north end of Amelia Island, Florida.
  6. Predator Canine

    64 mm Canine. I keep flip_flopping. Wolf, Bear, Jaguar are the likely candidates.
  7. No idea what this is

    This was also found on the beach on the north end of Amelia Island, Florida USA. i have no idea what it could be.
  8. Possible Ice Age Bison Tooth?

    Hi. i found this fossilized tooth a couple of years ago. It was found on the beach on the north end of Amelia Island, Florida. They dredge sand to restore the beach fairly often which makes for great sharks teeth finding. So. Is it a bison tooth? Any guesses on age? Thank you for helping me solve this mystery.
  9. Whale Vertebra ?

    I believe it is possibly a whale vertebra. It is light for it's size. Found inland Venice, FL in a dirt pile. Image 7414 shows flat surface of fossil. The remaining images are lateral views.
  10. I have an unknown, dense, arced fossil that is solid. Image 1 shows the smooth, angled surface. I cannot find a reference for this item. Found in spoil pile today in inland Venice. Surrounding material from Pleistocene. Thank you in advance. This should be challenging... Regards, Michael
  11. A 2nd look

    Fossils with questions are tossed in a special bucket for thinking about when hunting opportunities start drying up. That time has come. Here a couple: The question: Mastodon or Gomph; I have found Gomph fragments in this location. Another 2 inch fossil, that I almost threw away!! Laying in the sieve, I thought it was unidentifiable bone, but then noted the odd ends. So Bone or Tooth .... If you decided tooth for this 2nd one, you might check out the fossils in this old thread!!! Thanks for all responses.
  12. Unknown Florida Mammal Tooth

    Hello, I have positively identified three other teeth today by looking through the FF gallery and UF Florida Museum collections. This tooth is different from the Equus examples. I could not match it up with camel either. Some of you have incredible collections. Fossil collected from retention pond spoils in North Port, FL. Hole depth 5-10 feet below sea level. Area near Little Salt Spring. Thank you in advance for your knowledge. Regards, Michael
  13. Mammoth/mastodon? Ivory???

    Hi all, I found this in Polk county Florida on the peace river, and was wondering if it is ivory or part of a tooth? TIA
  14. ID Equus Phalanges Venice, FL

    Confirming Fossil Identification hello, I am trying to determine if this is an Equus Phalanges. Recovered from lake spoils in North Port, FL. Excavation to depth of approx 20 feet. I also found horse teeth in the area. Pleistocene area. Confirmation welcome. There are a lot of smart people enrolled on this forum.
  15. Venice Florida Tortoise Advice

    Hello, I live in between Venice and North Port, FL, close to the Myakka. I have been finding tortoise fossils/clasts in my neighborhood. Most are in moist clay within a foot from surface. This location is SW of the Peace River Formation. I find deer antler, Meg teeth, and manatee ribs fully fossilized here also. This is Pleistocene area. I have not found fully fossilized tortoise. Mine are not totally solidified. I find many scutes/ spurs along with the clasts that are hardened. Looking for advice. Photos of one sample attached. Regards, Michael

  17. Fossil? ID request

    Found in Jacksonville Florida.
  18. Fossil ID Assistance

    Found on surface spoils after pond excavated. Venice, FL , 15 miles southwest of Peace River Formation. Depth was no greater than 15 feet. Possibly Arcadia formation. Pleistocene epoch. Fossil is very dense and smooth. I have found many fossils in this area but none this color or density. Note: striations on last 2 images. Looking forward to learning and sharing some other finds.
  19. Horse Tooth Found

    I found this tooth in the overburden sight at my work. I actually found this tooth first, and went to grab a survey flag to mark the pile. On the way I found the shark tooth i just shared in an other post. It was an exciting day. Anyway, from looking at the molar patterns of other horse tooth fossils I think that this is a three-toed horse (Perissodactyla Miohippus ?). Judging from what I think is wear on the tooth ridges, I would hazard a guess that the horse was an old timer? While I personally am not fond of horses, it was really nice to have pieces that I could clearly identify for once, instead of various fragments of a fossil jigsaw puzzle.
  20. Shark Tooth Found

    I found this tooth at my normal overburden site, at work, it is the best shark tooth i have even found. Looking at Shark tooth I.D guides my guess is that this is a Auriculatus tooth. What do you all think?
  21. Unknown Florida mammal tooth

    Hi all, I received a jar of fossils from my grandfather a couple years ago before he passed away, and was wondering what type of tooth it was. Most of the stuff in the jar is from Florida but I’m not positive everything is. It is 2 1/4 inches long. my guess is it’s either a mammoth or horse tooth.
  22. Partial tooth

    Hi everyone, Can you ID this for me it’s hollow on the inside. I’m guessing meg or gw.
  23. Cookie Cutter teeth id please

    I recieved these itty bitty teeth enclosed as a little surprise recently from Tony (ynot). All I know about them is that they are out of Cookie Cutter matrix from Florida. They appear to belong mostly or even all to the same species, or at least genus, so I'm hoping that someone here can help me out with the id. Could they perhaps be Gar teeth?
  24. Unidentified Pleistocene Mammal tooth

    I found this tooth fragment in the ocean while vacationing at Englewood, Florida. I need help determining if this is in fact a tooth fragment and what animal it may have came from. My money is on Equus. Thank you
  25. Florida Pleistocene Equus tooth?

    Hello again TFF! I just picked up this tooth that I am pretty sure is an Equus sp. found in phosphate deposits near Tampa Bay, FL. What drew me to it was two isolated cones that I haven't seen in the modern Equus teeth I've handled. Is this a positional morphology or one particular to a specific species? Thanks for your thoughts!
