  1. Leidyosuchus tooth

    From the album Judith River fm. Fossil Finds

    This little tooth likely comes from the alligatoroid Leidyosuchus. However I could be wrong and I'm basing that idea off of it being the only crocodilian other than deinosuchus described from the formation.
  2. Hi. I wanted help identifying a fossil tooth found in Florida. My son and I found it on the Peace River North of Wachula. We were sifting gravel from the middle of the river last week. I thought it to be alligator, but someone noted the ridge was distinctive enough that they didn't believe the tooth to be as such. It is slightly larger than an inch long. I can provide other pictures. Thank you Ken
  3. Alligator "Molar" Tooth

    From the album Lance fm. Microsite Finds

    Brachychampsa montana Late Cretaceous (Maastrichtian~ 66 mya) Lance formation These teeth were found in the rear of the animal's mouth and aided it in crushing the hard shells of its prey.

  6. Venice, Fl Turtle or Gator?

    I found an interesting fossil on the beach in Venice, FL. Believe it is either a Turtle scute or an alligator osteoderm. Can anyone help confirm and tell me anything interesting about it? Thanks for the help! Rob Convex side Concave Side Edge view
  7. Alligator Tooth

    Location according to seller Tampa Bay FL. Item showed up on popular auction site. Curious as to what you make of the ID? Thanks! Age: Pleistocene Species: Alligator Formation: phosphate Mind
  8. Hello, I found what appears to be a split tooth on Casey Key, Florida. It's about 5/8 x 3/8" with a nice wood grain color and shine. I have attached 5 photos, front and back. Can you ID it from what is left of the tooth? Thanks in advance!
  9. A Jaw Fragment

    I was hunting with a couple of TFF friends doing a ground search in an area that produces 90% marine fossils, Megs, Makos, but no GWs, Whale /Dolphin earbones and vertebrate, ray teeth, fish verts, dugong rib bones with a few mammal bones and teeth, primarily horse. I found this jaw section: My initial take was whale, but then too small for whale and I switched to gator. I have seen no alligator teeth and lots of whale material. Is there anything besides size that would confirm or eliminate one or the other ?. Thanks for comments, suggestions, IDs.
  10. Florida Pleistocene Fossil Hunt!

    Hey everyone! My girlfriend Ashley and I got out to hunt some Pleistocene sites a couple days ago. There are also Eocene sharks teeth mixed in. The rivers are all pretty high, so we went to some bank hunting sites I have found over the years. They definitely did not disappoint! We found a Tapir jaw section, horse tooth, some pretty big alligator teeth, and a variety of other fossils!
  11. Fernie area fossil

    Would anyone be able to help with identification of this fossil? They always called in an alligator, but I'd like to try and figure out what it actually was. It was found in the corner of Southeast BC. We were under the sea for a little while, and also a little marshy peninsula type thing after the western interior started to retreat. Where it was found was near where we find ammonites and corals, so im assuming it would have been when we were underwater, or near the shore where the body washed up. However about half an hour from here dinosaur prints have been found as well. I can't manage to figure out what it could be! Thank you for any help.
  12. Hi all, I have a mysterious croc tooth that needs identifying. It measures 7cm in a straight line, with a crown length of 3cm. It was found in a backwater near Savannah, Georgia. It came out of an old stream bed eroding out. The area is normally a Miocene deposit where there are Gavialosuchus americanus but the original owner (who is a fossil croc expert) sincerely believes it's something else as there are supposedly earlier deposits there as well. He thinks it is from the lineage of Deinosuchus. Has anyone seen such croc/alligator teeth in Georgia? Has anyone heard of late Cretaceous deposits near Savannah? Thank you.
  13. Thinking tapir tibia but not sure

    Found in Florida river. Previously found tapir in the area and was wondering if this was tapir tibia.
  14. Pleistocene gator and deer fossil ? Brunswick, GA

    Hi Guys, This would be the first alligator tooth that I've run across .. but it is really the deer skull fragment that I'm curious about ? I'm calling it that because that is my assumption seeing what I think is the interior of the skull with the brain impression and the lower part of the antler base ? These deposits are dredge spoil piles and have a mish-mash literally of marine and terrestrial fossils. I tossed in an image of the G. cuvier for kicks because the preservation is pretty good coming from a land site. If you need additional images let me know. For Kicks. Cheers, Brett
  15. Alligator Tooth?

    This reminds me of an alligator tooth? Seems a bit large...
  16. Alligator teeth fossil or just a rock

    I'm not even sure if this is a fossil, looks like a baby alligators teeth. I do know that the teeth should have a different color than the rock. This was found in Venice Florida
  17. Non Shark Teeth from Peace River

    I'm relatively new at fossil hunting in the Peace River but I found a few nuggets that I am not able to identify so asking for expert schooling here. I assume the first is a long tooth but broken at both ends. The second (3-4" marks) is much smoother and has a twist to it. The 3rd at 5" is just a conical tip of something. The two at 6 & 7 appear to be vertebra of some type but I don't know what, these were found almost a mile apart. The pieces at 8" and 9" are unknown to me, at first I thought it was a curious formation but now I've seen 4 or more of these so I started saving them. I don't know if they are fish tooth or a "claw" or just funny rocks? The final question is an oddball that seemed to "unusual" to be just a "rock" but other than describing it as "brain like" I don't know what it would be? Fish ballast? Thanks in advance! Calvin in North Port, FL
  18. I've sorted two general groups of specimens as shown in images looks like some dolphin and alligator teeth to me, and then some things that don't- specimen A is a dome shaped hemisphere G is flatter and could be enamel H also looks like enamel anyway appreciate any comments
  19. Composite skeletone

    Hello all, I already posted this topic in Paleo Re-creations, but nobody answered there. I want to make a composite skeleton from an extinct animal, but I don't know witch species I take best. I already tought about Oreodont, cave bear, bison... Do you guys know an animal whose it is possible to collect all the bones (skull is not necassary, but I would love a real skull) Keichousaur is not a good example, because I want have the fun for searching, buying and making a composite. It think mammals are the only option, because reptiles are expensive and difficult to collect all the bones, maybe alligator is possible? What do you guys think about it? Greetings
  20. I've written trip reports before about volunteering with the Florida Museum of Natural History (FLMNH) at their various dig sites in Florida. The currently (very) active site is called Montbrook for a small town that used to be in the area (but is no more). Here are a few links from FLMNH which provide some contextual information about the site: https://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/museum-voices/montbrook/ https://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/florida-vertebrate-fossils/sites/mont/ https://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/museum-voices/montbrook/2016/09/07/why-montbrook/ The site has yielded an impressive number of specimens and is very important scientifically as it provides the best view of Florida fauna from the late Hemphillian (Hh4) North American Land Mammal Age (NALMA) from approximately 5.5-5.0 mya. The other significant locality for this age is the Palmetto Fauna a couple hundred miles south of the Montbrook site. More info here for those interested in the stratigraphy: https://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/florida-vertebrate-fossils/land-mammal-ages/hemphillian/ https://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/florida-vertebrate-fossils/sites/palmetto-fauna/ Here is a link to my Montbrook posting from 2016 showing the couple of times I managed to get out there--the last time with TFF members Daniel @calhounensis and John-Michael @Brown Bear: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/63056-volunteer-dig-with-the-flmnh/ Now, enough of the links and time for a few pictures! The Montbrook site has changed quite a bit over the last year since I've been able to get out there. We had plans to return to Montbrook last October but Hurricane Matthew was an uninvited guest to Florida that week and the dig site was tarped down and the dig cancelled. Thankfully, the hurricane left my house untouched (didn't really even get rain or wind of note) and didn't mess-up the Montbrook site but we did miss an opportunity for one last trip to Montbrook in 2016. When we returned in February 2017 it took some time to get my bearings. The deeper pit to the east where several gomphothere skulls, tusks and long bones had been removed did not weather the rainy season well. This section has been backfilled with about 5 feet of sand and clay from the higher levels during the summer rain storms. For now they will concentrate digging on the main pit to the west and hope to get back to the lower "elephant" layer some time in the future--though the prep work to remove the overburden and get back to the original level will be significant. So much material has been moved from the upper western dig area that it was hard to picture exactly where we had dug nearly a year ago. I'm still not quite sure where we were in 2016 as the site has evolved greatly since our last visit. On Thursday and Friday there were mostly just a few volunteers who could make it to the site on weekdays--mainly retired folks or those with flexible schedules like us who could volunteer during the week. On Saturday there were a lot more volunteers and the dig site became a bit more crowded so you had to be aware of others digging sometimes in the grid square adjacent to yours. Here are some overall site photos I took on Saturday and you can see the line-up of cars that brought a full capacity of volunteers.
  21. Nice Sharp Tooth mosasaur?

    Hi: Me again. I found this at Aurora, NC Phosphate mine many moons ago. I am unsure if it's an alligator, mosasaur tooth or something else. Thanks for the help. David .
  22. Here are 4 very small jaw fragments??, that I would like to see if anyone could ID for me. I realize they are very small, but any help is appreciated as always. 3 pics of each jaw. Thank you, David
  23. Going fossil hunting tomorrow. Seeing dinosaurs like this makes one think twice about wading into that dark water. But it won't deter us. LINK Keep your eyes open when out there in the river.
  24. I noticed the fossils of more 'modern' reptiles are not commonly shown/displayed (partly because I think they are fairly common in the U.S. and not viewed as too spectacular), so I thought we might do so here. I'd love to see your croc/alligator and turtle material, especially from various locations!
