  1. ID on possible herbivore tooth from Peace River FL

    Hello all, I recently returned from Peace River with a few finds, including this 15 mm fossil. I believe it's a small herbivore tooth, but I'm new here so would greatly appreciate help on the ID. Thanks!
  2. Seeking ID for South Florida find

    Hi everyone, I’m looking for some help identifying this find from the Peace River in Florida. It’s about 3 cm, and relatively conical in shape, with a slight curve to it. I’m curious if this is some sort of tooth, possibly crocodilian? I’m pretty new to the hobby, so any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  3. Shark tooth 2"

    Hi to you , was wondering after I have done some research , I don't think this is megalodon ..flat cutting surfaces , no serrations at all . It's 50mm (2") found in peace river , Florida Thanks for any help!
  4. A shark tooth or from a pet cat?

    Good morning! I am a complete novice so this may be very easy for all of you. I was walking the beach along the ocean in Saint Augustine, Florida (northeastern Florida). I always look for shark teeth (of which there are many) but recognize them as being black. I found this tooth and it is cream colored. My husband thinks it might belong to someone’s pet. But, it could be something exciting! What do you think?
  5. Here is an odd one. It's very hard and mineralized. I found it in an intermingled deposit of Pleistocene and Miocene material - I was pulling shark teeth and mammoth ivory fragments from the same hole. So, I don't know if this bone is some Miocene marine critter or a Pleistocene land beast. Can anyone tell what this is? Found in the Peace River, near Zolfo Springs (Bone Valley formation). Thanks in advance!
  6. Whose teeth?

    I found this on a gulf coast beach near Venice Florida. There were many shark teeth and other fossils in the area. I believe it is a reptile tooth, but do not know how to tell if it is an alligator, or some other aquatic reptile. It has a fine ridge running up one side. Any clues or help with ID is appreciated.
  7. These two mammal teeth were found in northern Florida, I dont know what formation they were found in, but they are probably from the Pleistocene. The first tooth is about 3/4 of an inch long, and about the same in width at the widest point. The second tooth is about 1/2 an inch long and about the same in width at its widest point. They appear to be herbivore but I could be wrong, I'm not good with mammal teeth yet. Thanks!
  8. 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?
  9. Howdy! I've been trying to properly ID some of my toothy finds from the Peace River and Venice Florida. Please let me know if I have misidentified any. Also, including a few that I am not sure about. Any help is appreciated! Pretty sure the are Megalodon, but not 100 percent. 1. 2 inches top to bottom 2 One inch top to bottom . 3 One inch, obviously. . Snaggletooth Hemipristis: 4. One Inch 5. One inch 6 Just over one inch obviously , Carcharinus (Bull Sharks? Whaler Sharks? Dusky Sharks?) Not sure what species.. Would like to narrow it down, but not sure about that. 7. 3/4 Inch 8. 9. One Inch 10 11. 3/4 inch . Lemon Shark - I am pretty positive on the Lemon ID I just wanted to show this precious teeny tiny tooth: It think that is a salt crystal growing on the side! 12. Tiger Shark 13 3/4 Inch 14 3/4 inch Unknown: 15. A worn Carcharinus? 16. 1/4 inch
  10. Due to the proliferation of Covid-19 “stay at home orders”, I felt an urgency to go out and fossil-hunt at least one more time before my city, county, or the entire state got put on lockdown. I loaded up the truck on saturday night and we headed out to Gardner early on sunday morning. When we arrived at the ramp about 9:00am, there were a lot of vehicles and activity – much more than my previous three trips. I think a lot of people had the same idea – get out and enjoy the river while you can. It was a beautiful day with plentiful sun and a cool breeze. We loaded up the kayaks (my wife, my stepdaughter, and my grandson) and we headed upstream to check out our usual spots. As we were going up around the bend and our first site came into view, we saw a pair of fossil-hunters parked right in “our” spot. Looking further upriver towards our second spot, there were fossil-hunters in that spot as well. The early bird gets the worm and these folks beat us to a preferred spots. So plan B came into action and we paddled further upstream. We paddled further than we have ever been previously. Looking for gravel beds or exposed strata eroding into the river, we found a good spot about another three-quarters of a mile beyond our usual spots. On this day I decided to be picky and only go after teeth or highlight specimens. I have buckets full of dugong ribs, chunkasaurus, and turtle scutes at home, so I immediately discarded those when they turned up in my sifter. I tossed them downstream behind me into the river and kept digging. My 10-yo grandson held the sifter and helped me with sifting and he got a big kick out of pulling teeth and bits from every shovel load. A little further down the bank, my wife was snapping nature photos and my stepdaughter was digging and sifting in her own spot about 50 feet away. This spot was a tease. Tons of small teeth and common stuff, but only tantalizing fragments of the better stuff. A broken quarter of a mastodon tooth, broken megalodons (fragolodons), etc. I think I did find a couple of baby megs (when they are tiny, I find them hard to discern at times, versus bull or mako). I felt that there must be at least one good meg in this spot, so I dug like a man possessed. I moved a lot of gravel and dug three bomb-craters in the river bed, but to no avail. That big meg eluded me. Eventually my back started complaining and we decided to call it a day. We saw many other hunters on the river, some operating alone and others in groups. We would exchange pleasantries as we passed them by - “How yall doin’?”…… “Beautiful day!”…..”Having any luck?” - most were friendly and reported results similar to our’s – lots of small stuff and oddballs, but nothing to write home about. Of course, if I found a pocket of 100 megs in a hole, I would say something along the lines of “Nah, just little stuff and broken stuff.”. I hope they had better luck than I did. I often wondered if any of the other hunters were forum members, but I never asked because I don’t like intruding on folks or being nosy. But if any of you reading this saw two green kayaks (one of them a bright neon green tandem) pass by with a tall lanky guy, two women, and a kid, then say hello here so I know it was you! I spoke to a couple of fossil-hunters who had rented canoes from Canoe Escape and put in at Zolfo Springs. They told me that Pioneer Park (and the ramp) had been closed earlier that day and that the public park at Brownville was also closed. Both of those are parks with facilities and staff, so I expected they would close eventually. Gardner is just an unstaffed ramp with no facilities, so hopefully it stays open. Hearing that made me glad we decided to go when we did. As I sit here writing this, Hillsborough County (where I live) is about to announce a “stay at home order” - threatening the rest of our fossil season. I know that exercise is considered OK for going out (essential), but I don’t know if driving three counties away to fossil-hunt will be viewed as “exercise”, so I am unsure if I will see the river again any time soon. I guess now we wait and see how this whole Covid-19 thing plays out. I hope this is not the end of fossil-season for us because the water is so LOW. I brought home a much lighter load this time around, having decided to leave all the dugong ribs and chunks of matrix behind. My highlight of the day was a small fossil tooth that I pulled from my first hole. It’s intact with both roots and an undamaged crown. I will try to get it ID’ed today. I also found a couple of very small teeth that I think might be baby megs, but I am unsure. I’ll post photos of our swag when I get everything spread out and dried. I was so tired when we got back last night that I didn’t even inspect or lay out my finds. I showered, ate, and went to sleep by 9:30pm. My wife is still downloading her photos now, so I added visuals to this thread later today. EDIT : apparently the guy I spoke to on the river was wrong - Pioneer Park is still open.
  11. Peace River Dolphin Tooth Identity?

    I came across another odontocete tooth while rummaging through storage. I don't find this tooth in Hulberts book. Does anyone know what dolphin this tooth came from? It has a triangular, leaf-like root, though one corner is missing in this specimen.
  12. An exciting find

    To start off, I love whale teeth. They seem to love me also. I find many of them. This one seems different and thus special. In circumference, it is a 3rd the size of my pinky. It is 57 mm (2.25 inches) in length, 7.5 mm wise, and it is all there. Note also that the tip has been shaved by an opposing tooth. and it was found in SW Florida. Is Aulophyster a possibility? Hopefully, Bobby @Boesse can provide options.
  13. Vertebra ID

    Hello brand new member hello everyone! I have been out collecting about 10 times this year in SW Florida found this today, was pretty excited to pull this out of a creek off the peace River . It's about 75mm wide and 75mm tall (3") it's pretty light weight for it's size . Thank you if you can help identify.
  14. Last one from the Peace River! There’s three ridges where my finger is pointing.
  15. Peace River, Florida bone find

    Another stumper! This one has a sheen to it that doesn’t show up well in the photos. I try to show all sides. It’s cubed in shape.
  16. First time poster! Going through my collection and I have some that stump me. Any idea on this one?
  17. from Peace river, Florida. Thoughts!
  18. Peace River Petrified Wood?

    Inspired by @Harry Pristis's recent post in the member sales forum, I found this oddball in my sifter on monday's hunt. It's dense and mineralized. It "clanks" when you tap it. However, it has a very organic shape and a wood-grain texture. I have found the silicified white variety previously, but could this be an example of phosphatized or something other local variety of fossilized wood? I've found a lot of river-tumbled bone chunks and ivory chunks, but this one seems different. Not quite bone, not quite antler, not quite ivory, and I am fairly certain it's not just a rock.
  19. Florida Covid-19 (Corona Virus) Closings

    With the pandemic taking over more of our lives, I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread for posting closures that impact fossil hunting. For example, some national parks and beaches are starting to close down. Some of these are access points for fossil-hunters. For example, Payne's Creek state park has a boat ramp used by hunters to access areas outside the park boundaries. Zolfo Springs' Pioneer Park is a public park run by Hardee County - another ramp used by hunters. As of right now, state and county parks are still open, but that could change at any time. So, if you find out about a closing here in Florida, please post it in this thread. Also, please post a relevant link to a press release, official announcement, or media story for your source. I just heard on the news that Picnic Island park in Hillsborough County is closing starting at sunset tonight, but the boat ramp will remain open. In addition, all public beaches operated by the City of Tampa will also be closed until further notice : https://www.abcactionnews.com/news/region-hillsborough/city-of-tampa-shutting-down-beaches-amid-coronavirus-concerns This is the peak of our fossil-hunting season down here in south-central Florida and it is very likely that these Covid-19 closures are going to impact our shared passion - so let's help keep each other updated. Stay safe out there - fossil-hunting is good "social distancing".
  20. Carnivore Coprolites & Tracks

    Here are a few specimens that have been poo pooed by collectors. As I understand it carnivore coprolites like this need a "soft landing" They are produced in water and sink into the silt where protected as they fossilize. The holes are caused as the item surfaces and is exposed to the ocean tiny bivalves attach themselves to obtain minerals. Many have holes only on the side that was exposed. And others have no holes at all having never been in the ocean. The natural migration of barrier islands on the east coast is to move to the south west, this action is like a bulldozer track as the top moves west and south the contents sometimes appears on the beach surface. Most fit into a specific type and all are smaller than a big dog, more like a cat or small dog sized creature, but none bigger. if they were a type of Coquina there would be larger specimens, there are none. There are however all sizes and types from different periods of Coquina from tiny pieces to hundreds of pounds. There is evidence of shell fragments and often it appears the sample has landed on decaying vegetation or partially wrapped around a stick. I even have one that has fragments, a termination point, obvious vegetation impression on one side and a foot print on the other side. I have pressed a piece of clay in to each side as a reverse study. In the first picture he foot print is less obvious than the vegetation impression. But when the excess is removed it reveals a triangular webbed clawed print.
  21. Sm Miocene Tooth

    When I first found this tooth, I paused. Many times I have stated that horizontal banding in the Peace River means one thing--- marine mammal, likely whale. This tooth is very small, could be something like Aulophyseter, but I am no longer so sure. Decided to see if others recognize this tooth.
  22. Bone Valley Whites

    I am sitting at home, sorting ziplock bags of fossils collected in the last year. You know the problem. Too many fossils in the house. All these fossils came out of a Bone Valley Creek, definitely Miocene. For those of you who are fortunate enough to collect Bone Valley teeth, what is happening with the white on these teeth? Especially the Hemipristis.. A white tip. or the "bourlette" on the Tiger?
  23. Bite marked bone?

    I was wondering if this was a bite mark and if not, what is it? Pen for size reference.
  24. Pie Day on the Peace

    My mom is in town escaping the colder weather in Chicago and visiting the Boca house probably for the last time (we're moving to Gainesville, FL in a few months). We'd been talking about taking her out fossil hunting on the Peace River for some time but the last couple of years have been relatively short fossil hunting seasons with the water level on the Peace remaining too high for most of the normal "dry season". This year her visit corresponded well with perfect conditions for an outing on the Peace. The last time we were out was during the week between Christmas and New Year when our friends had their daughter in town. The river was about 2.5 feet higher then and we couldn't get to the deeper site that I wanted to visit which has chunkier gravel with lots of dugong rib bones and a chance of finding some larger fossils. I went walked into that site up to my shoulders and decided that spot was a no-go for that trip. Conditions this visit were much more conducive for hunting in the chunky gravel. Here's the trip report from our last visit: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/101024-peace-river-trip-before-the-new-year-decade/ We rented our canoes from Canoe Outpost as usual and put in at Brownville Park for our normal 8.5 mile run back down to Arcadia. We hoped to meet up with new forum member @Jen Morris but the timing didn't work out. We had a schedule to keep and had to move down from the big well-known gravel bed just downstream from Brownville to hit some other spots and still be able to get the canoes back before 5:00 p.m. (we were in with 5 minutes to spare). This trip we took our friend's granddaughter, Destiny, with us to fill out a small flotilla of two canoes. Destiny had been wanting to fossil hunt the Peace since moving back to Florida from the Pacific Northwest. After to abbreviated fossil hunting seasons in South Florida this season all the planets aligned and she was able to make the trip with us on her quest to find a meg tooth (a common goal for first time fossil hunters in Florida). We spent nearly 4 hours at the well-known and well-hunted gravel bed just down from the boat ramp at Brownville Park and it took us some time to prospect around and find some productive gravel. A couple months back on our previous visit we did pretty good here with a horse tooth and camelid tooth (but only tiny meg fragments). Though there were not the usual "bomb craters" and huge discard piles that we usually see at this site in the river indicating lots of recent hunting pressure, we had to prospect around quite a bit before we started finding more than just the common tiny shark teeth--even turtle shell and dugong bones were being elusive. Just before our planned lunch break around noon (cold leftover homemade pizza from the night before ) we hit paydirt with Destiny shouting out when a nearly complete meg showed up in her sifting screen. That was matched in kind pretty quickly when my mom joined the Meg Club a few minutes later. We decided that we had worked this site well enough for the day and decided to put a little more distance behind us and paddle for a while to get a bit closer to our destination in Arcadia. We made it down to the spot with the chunky gravel. This is a spot on a large sandbar. Previous to Hurricane Irma the top of this sandbar was just that--sand! The gravel area was limited to a small strip on the leading edge of this sandbar where the bottom rose up from much deeper water. It was a limited area but has delivered interesting fossils from time to time (like over 2 dozen cetacean tympanic bullae in a few hours). Post Irma we found the site deeper with the top couple of feet of sand peeled off and transported further downstream. While this makes the site more difficult to access during deeper water, it revealed that the gravel seam along the leading edge was just the margin of a much more extensive gravel bed that covers much of the top of this presently lowered sandbar. It is deeper on the upstream side and shallows as you walk downstream on it. Though the temps were very warm--near if not reaching 90F (32C)--the rest of our group didn't feel like venturing into water over waist deep and so I used my fiberglass probe to hunt around for some gravel in the shallower depths. It took me a bit of prospecting till I found the sort of very chunky gravel that this site is famous (to me) for. At this site it is not uncommon to dig up a chunk of matrix rock filling the entire shovel. These bowling ball boulders are shot-putted away from where we are digging a far enough distance that we are not soaked with the ensuing kerplunk of a splash. We turned up some additional nearly complete meg teeth and enough dugong rib bone pieces to pave a driveway. The finds here are less frequent with the smaller shark teeth being almost absent. The gravel is generally much larger here golf ball to softball size and so there are fewer but larger finds to be had. We scored a nice glyptodont osteoderm to go with the partial Holmesina osteoderm we found at the first stop. Destiny scored a really nice bison tooth and a very cool pharyngeal crushing plate covered with phyllodont enamel teeth from a wrasse or bonefish. It was getting toward the end of the day and the Earth's gravity had quite obviously undergone a recent local surge as the shovels of gravel and sand were getting noticeably heavier than they'd been at the start of the day. We had just about run out of time to be able to paddle our way down the last stretch back to Arcadia and our cars which awaited us with towels and a dry change of clothing. We were finishing up our last few screens and where I was digging the gravel was tapping out to just sand and the annoying sticky gray clay that makes digging and sifting a pain. I looked upstream and noticed that I had without realizing it worked my way about 20 feet from where I had left my probe to mark where I had first found this nice chunky gravel. I decided to return to where I had first found this nice chunky stuff and finish my last couple of screens there. While digging in this larger material you have to get the tip of your shovel down between the larger pieces of rock. This usually requires putting one foot on the edge of the shovel and leaning in some body weight while wiggling the top of the shovel around as the tip navigates down between the rocks so that you can scoop up a full load into the sifting screen. Quite often the bowling ball size chunks that pave the bottom here will fall off the shovel or become uncovered by digging around them and they will need to be pulled up and tossed away so digging can proceed. I could feel one loose piece that was located directly between my feet. I could detect a bit of the shape with one foot on either side and it seemed familiar (yes, I have feet that are trained to detect fossils ). The water was just shallow enough that I could bend down and grab hold of it with one hand. I told Tammy to pull out the camera. She gave me that look like "Really?" and I nodded my head. In hindsight, it would have been more funny as a video clip but we ended the day with a special find so my mom would remember this Pie Day (3/14) on the Peace River--a nearly 7 pound (3 kg) Colombian Mammoth tooth! Here are a couple of post-trip photos of some of the other interesting finds. A really sweet Glyptotherium and partial Holmesina osteoderm, a nice piece of softshell turtle carapace, and what appears to be part of the jaw of the Long-beaked Dolphin. Cheers. -Ken
  25. Peace river bones

    With the river low I decided to go to the peace river up in wauchula and try my luck, did alright and had fun but I have a few I can’t identify, help is appreciated ankle bone of some kind, not sure what animal digit? Appears to be a toe bone but again not sure odd shaped bone, cut pretty cleanly on some edges but appears to be fossilized
