fossilnut posted a topic in Fossil IDThis was the year of the Mammal for me. The antler piece was given to me by my friend Bill who ONLY keeps shark teeth-he also gave me the meg pieces in the previous post. The 2nd piece in the picture I can not id. Pictures 3-5 is this a deer tooth? 6/7 horse? 8/9 piece of mastodon tooth? 10/11 mammoth tooth piece, 12/13 looks like tooth material?, 14,15 looks to me to be ivory? mastodon or mammoth? 16/17 looks like the baleen groove for a baleen whale? I have a number of other large bone? pieces that i will post later as part 3 to try and see if identifiable as well as some interesting modern stuff. I did not post the bryozoan material I found either. Thanks for looking and any corrections, suggestions or comments would be appreciated. Thanks.
Hi, a friend and I went out on the very low Peace River, near Wachulla last weekend. It was beautiful, We didn't find anything spectacular. I found three large but very broken Megaledon teeth, a nice 5 inch piece of deer antler including the basal spread, and these two sharks teeth that have me a bit puzzled. Besides the normal sharks here, the sand, hemipristis, great white, etc. I found these but am unsure of what they are. The first one has that unusual looking root. To me it actually looks like a baby Megaledon, but I am sure one of you will identify it in a snap....thanks. The second may be a hemipristis, from someplace in the mouth. It is the only one I have ever found like it. It is fairly smooth up the shaft to the tip, where it has those serrations. Again, one , or more of you will be able to help me out, I am sure. Though, I have now been doing this for two year and have learned much, I realize my own knowledge is like a pin scratch on a piece of glass...almost nonexistent. Thanks.
