  1. Creeks around Gainesville

    Hey guys. I’ve done a good bit of hunting in Gainesville and wanted to know if there were any creeks around/outside Gainesville you would suggest for fossil hunting. Seems like all the creeks in Gville are over hunted.
  2. This is my first trip report in quite a while. I probably need to go back and do some others to catch-up on some other neat finds. My son and I went to Gainesville yesterday with Wild Kyle. We had a great time, and productive day. I found a nice dolphin vertebra in someone’s spoil pile and my son actually dropped a posterior meg in the spoil for the next person. (I realized it was missing when we were taking a wrap up photo, and I went back and found it.) I was really excited to find the ray plate. The condition was not great, but i love finding these things fused. Kyle pointed out a croc scute in my screen that I definitely would have missed and he found part of a dugong skull cap. The nicest meg had a small crack, which broke on the way home, so I had to do a repair.
  3. I just looked at a post that I did almost 1 year ago about Hogtown Creek in Gainesville and this post is almost exactly the same. It was a quick visit to Alfred Ring Park, about 45 minutes, and again I only found some miscellaneous bone pieces, Ray and shark teeth. The temp was hot, 86 degrees, and the water was cool- it made for a great time. On the way out, I ran into what I believe is an endangered 4 1/2 foot Florida Pine Snake, who was in exceptional shape. After a brief discussion with him, he went on his way and so did I. Here are some pics of the area, the snake and my finds.
  4. Gainesville finds

    Nice variety of finds from my Gainesville trip to Hogtown creek over the weekend.
  5. Canine tooth

    Any ideas on what type of tooth this is? Found it in Hogtown creek in Gainesville, FL. Looks like some type of canine tooth.
  6. Need help with this one...

    We took the kids hunting in one of the creeks around Gainesville- found typical sharks teeth, ray barbs, etc then found this- I have no clue what it is- Any ideas?
  7. Strange looking vert

    Found this odd vert today in a gainesville creek. Referenced my books, looked online, and can’t find anything that looks like this! Any help would be great! Thanks
  8. back to the creeks

    It's been a few months since we've gone to the creeks in Gainesville. Thanks to Pat C. who asked if we would like to join him, we went out yesterday to a new spot. With low humidity, perfect temperature and cool water , we worked our way to Pat's secret spot. After a short hike, we ended up in an area of the creek that had plenty of gravel to work through. After a few hours of sifting, everyone was happy with their finds. Hemi's seemed to be the tooth of the day, with plenty to be found. Mrs. beachbum had the best finds of the day with a pair of mako teeth in back to back screens, with the largest being 2 1/4". Along with the hemi's and mako's we found lemon, tiger and bull shark teeth along with ray barbs , verts (any ideas on the large vert?) and a couple of partial croc teeth. All in all it was a fun day hunting .
  9. Turtle or glyph scute frag?

    Cant really tell ? I'm used to turtle I always find turtle fragments but this looks diffrent .
  10. What do you guys think? It's definitely fossilized material.
  11. @Cris and myself went out to the creek a few days in hopes of finding some fossils! It was HOT, there were bugs everywhere, and thunderstorms all around, but we still had a fun day. The fossil finds were not as plentiful as hoped for, but not every day can be insane! We still had an amazing time and ended up coming home with some cool fossils. Photo of the finds is below if you can't watch the video!
  12. Florida tooth

    found this in a Gainesville creek today. Not sure what it is from.
  13. Brown Bear is back in action

    Checked out Mudslinger Tours in Gainesville with my daughter and niece today for a few hours. Its my first hunt in a little over a year due to various challenges now behind me. Not a bad haul for a short trip with kids. Their finds are not pictured... bottom line- The Brown Bear is back in action!
  14. I'm new to the forum. Went to Gainesville twice this week and took my niece for her first time on one of them.
  15. Rattlesnake Creek

    Can anyone help with this ID?? I am thinking crocodile??
  16. Rattlesnake Creek

    Beautiful day on Rattle Snake creek today in Gainesville,FL! Took 2 of our daughters for a couple hours! I believe the bigger tooth is crocodile! But if I am not accurate, please let me know!
  17. Today I stopped at the Gainesville Museum of Natural History in Gainesville, Florida so my wife could see the Rainforest Butterfly Exhibit and walk among the butterflies. Well after doing that, I did what any good FF Member would do, I took a ton of pictures of their Fossil exhibits. It is a very nice museum and it is free, with the exception of special exhibits like the Butterflies. For your viewin pleasure, her are the pics- it will take a couple posts.
  18. What do you guys think? Don't mind the line across the top, the piece unfortunately snapped in half and was repaired.
  19. Big bone from Gainesville, Florida

    Hey guys, any idea what bone this is? Seems like some sort of joint.
  20. Gainesville hunting advice

    Hey guys! I plan on being in Gainesville this Tuesday (4/3) for some solo hunting. Any advice or locations you'd recommend? -Terry
  21. Unknown Gainesville Creek Fossils

    Hello everyone, I recently went fossil hunting in Rattlesnake Creek of Gainesville, Florida (Late Miocene) and uncovered many different fossils but three of them I am unsure of the identity of them. I believe one may be a type of vertebrae, but the others I can not place. The creek is shallow, relatively fast moving with a sandy bottom but many areas where gravel, fossils and stones accumulate. The first 4 pictures are of the same fossil, the next 3 of the the second, and the last 3 pictures of the last fossil. I would appreciate any attempts to help identify. Thank you very much!

  23. Bone fragments

    Hi guys! I've been wondering for awhile if there's any possible way to ID some of the bone fragments that I have. Obviously some of them are just long flat fragments, but some of them seem to have identifying features or sockets/ joints. I know these pictures aren't the best, but if you have any thoughts on any of them please let me know. If you want more in-depth pictures of any of them I'd be happy to post them!
  24. Gainesville fossil?

    I found this digging in Gainesville and I have no idea what it is
