  1. Stepp's Collection

    Isistius triangulus (Probst 1879) Florida (USA), Sarasota County, "Cookiecutter Creek" Site, gravel; 2018 (cf. https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/index.php/download_file/view/21220/1075)
  2. Isistius tooth?

    I couldn't get a good picture of it, any clue on what it might be? It almost looks like an Isistius tooth, but the crown isn't the typical equilateral triangle that I normally see. All I know that its from Florida
  3. This tooth is a lower from the final tooth position (most posterior) on the left side as indicated by the bulge on one side of the tooth and lack of overlapping facet. The lingual face of the tooth is shown in the photo as indicated by the distinct delineation of the crown enamel and the root (less distinct on the labial surface). Teeth in a more anterior position have overlapping facets on both edges (with the symphyseal having both facets on the lingual face). The stratigraphic information for this locality is questionable and so is specified vaguely. The environment is marine shell hash that may span late Miocene-Pleistocene. Dr. Richard C. Hulbert, Jr. from FLMNH had this to say about the locality: There are two “formations” found near the surface in that area of the state. One is the middle to late Miocene Peace River Formation. The other “formation” possible is has been informally called the Okeechobee Formation by Tom Scott, and consists of the sandy shell beds formerly called the Caloosahatchee, Bermont, and Fort Thompson formations. On the geologic map of Florida published by the state’s geological survey it is not designated a formal name and is instead listed as Pliocene/Pleistocene shelly unit. Even if found in situ within the Plio/Pleistocene unit, such specimens could be reworked out of the Peace River Formation. If you are finding them in modern creek alluvium, it will be difficult to be sure which is their original depositional unit.
  4. A cookie-cutter named Irma

    I'm not a gambler, but I'll go a nickel on a sure thing... I'll bet you all dime I'm the only fossil hunter in Florida that found 2 fossil cookie-cutter shark teeth today! Irma is battering the roof, but the power is still on, so I'm digging in the bucket of micro's to pass the time. Two nice little brasiliensis in about two cups of material! No time for pictures, you know what they look like! We won't be doing any digging in the Peace River now for a good ling time...

  6. Here are a few of the micro fossils I've been having fun with recently. I've gathered some micro-matrix from Jeff's magic cookiecutter shark creek as well as some from the Peace River where John and I had good success with large mammal fossils (Proboscideans in particular). I've gone through a couple of plastic Solo cups of the cookiecutter micro-matrix in search of additional specimens of Isistius shark teeth to add to my small but growing collection. In my last batch of micro-matrix from this spot I've found a few nice ones including an unbelievable number of midline (symphyseal) teeth. This batch has already given up two Isistius and they've been nice complete teeth and not the more common fragments. Apparently, I must be some sort of Pied Piper of Isistius or possibly a symphyseal savant as one of these two is a really nice looking tooth with the two overlap notches on the same side marking this tooth as yet another symphyseal--I think this makes 3 or 4 now. A nice complete symphyseal Isistius and a more common non-symphyseal with a bit of a chip on one corner: Cheers. -Ken
