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!
I recently found this in a creek in Gainesville, FL and would like to figure out what it is. My best guess would be a worn-down beaver incisor, but it could just be an oddly broken bone for all I know. The 'tip' looks like it had repeated wear in life, and the 'root' has two circular indentations. The cross section is 14mm at the 'root', and the indentations are roughly 4.5mm diameter each. Let me know if there's any more info that could help. Thanks so much!
I'm always looking for new spots in the Gainesville/Alachua county so I don't deplete or cause repeat damage to my favorite areas in Ring Park. I heard a passing rumor that the walls of Devil's Millhopper have various shark teeth and bones embedded in the soil. Does anyone know if this is true? I'm ashamed to say that although I practicly live right next to it, I haven't been to the Devil's Millhopper in years, well before my fossil hunting craze. I'm also wondering if, in the case that there ARE teeth in the walls, people allowed to remove them? I understand the instability of sinkhole walls and don't want to cause a problem in the park.
