  1. Need help identifying bone

    I'm told most bones found on Myrtle Beach are dugong, but I can't quite place this bone on a chart I have of the dugong skeleton. Ideas? Thanks! Paula
  2. Found on Myrtle Beach. I'm told most bones here would be dugong But the coloring and look of this one is strange Can't decide if this is an axis vertebra, or just a rock with a borehole in it. Thoughts?
  3. Is this a dugong vertebra?

    Ok now that I'm getting the hang of this site, I'm trying to do more of my own research. And my amateur sleuthing wants to say this is a dugong vertebra - even though it seems a bit larger than other things I've seen. How am I doing? Thanks! (Found on Myrtle Beach today.)
  4. Hi everyone. My first time posting. Just found this one today at Myrtle Beach. It looks like a bone to me. Ideas? And if it is a bone, any thoughts on what it could be? I'm including photos with and without flash. Thank you! Paula
  5. Hello! I live in Ocala. Whenever my community starts constructing a new neighborhood, I go and search through the piles of limestone that they bring in to make the roadbed. It usually is different than the “local” softer chalkier limestone that is prevalent right here. This batch has a lot of beautiful brown and blue chert, the usual Florida fossils , some coated in druzy crystals (?) . There have been a few that I found last weekend that I cannot definitely identify. I appreciate any help, and any info on what area this limestone might be from. There are 3 photos here plus 2 more in the first reply. Thanks! Margaret
  6. Dugong manatee dilemma

    During my field works at Central Hispaniola I have been finding what appear to be manatees/dugongs ribs. As a rookie in the field of paleontology, which I am passionate about, could you help me determine if these dozens of pieces collected, in an elongated form and that are pinching at the end, as ribs of manatee/dugongs correspond or not to these vertebrates? ? They are dense and have small blackish dots like some mollusk fossils that I have also collected. Thanks, infinite thanks for helping me with this dilemma that fascinates me at the same time !!
  7. Help me ID this tooth please

    I found this tooth a year ago and have searched up info online to try to ID it but it was never a perfect match.. I'm thinking a dugong tooth but I have no idea. Thanks!
  8. But the water was still pretty cold lol, not too shabby. Got the day off, doing something career-wise in the morning; so why not dig in the afternoon.. Saw a few dead tilapia probably from the recent freeze; one was franticly swimming about where water met land, no idear why. Anyways, started out not getting much gravel at all (but finding just enough to stay persistent), by the end kicking myself in the behind for not finding the gravel motherload sooner. Oh well, leaves some for the rest I suppose (for now..). Not too much luck w/ the small snaggles I was after again, would think they'd be super abundant for how common the big-ens are but they ain't lol, again just pesky small grey shark teeth seem to be. The few small hemi lowers I do have are looking better every moment, no idea why they are not more common & I have a good eye for it.. Some I kept only to donate to the upcoming fossil fest (but some of the smaller complete ones I'm keeping to expand the collection). Know I won't be lugging the 1/4" mesh PVC sifter to the 1/27 group hunt, but nice to use it every once in a while for more variety. Couple horse teeth, few nice little 'cuda teeth. One big stingray barb frag, must have been pretty long when whole. One very cool complete hemi, think it's a lower. Oh & a bone that really caught my attention ended up being a dugong skullcap! Think the longest one (top, middle) might be whale rib(?) No idea what the big spiral one (on the right) is but my gut says invert Also been wondering what these are. Usually find smaller ones, seem like some kind of molar & no idea what this bone is, please & thanks
  9. A good first day Peace River

    This is late for me but I have been distracted with other issues. Basically on my 1st real hunting day, I had low expectations. A lot of prospecting, deeper water, etc. But this was a good day. Lots of small quality shark teeth, 3 decent lower hemis and a ALMOST unbroken Meg. I may go back to this spot. I thought these are modern wild pig and broken capybara incisor. But my find of the day was almost fantastic As it flipped into the sieve , I thought whale or tusk, but it turns out to be bone. About the best complete dugong rib I have ever found and it had to be a very small animal. So analysis requested. Is it complete? Another photo of the "end" Thanks to all. Jack
  10. Dugongs in the peace

    Question, I have been digging ALOT in the peace river in Arcadia this year, not one dugong rib. Yet I can head north 7 miles or so to Brownville and find at least 5 a day. Why do yall think this is? Thanks.
  11. Floridian dugong extinction

    Hugolee has a recent post showing pictures of dugong bone. The responses to his post tickled my interest in the subject and caused me to do a little research on both manatees and dugongs. I am now more intelligent regarding this subject, BUT could not figure out a question that came to mind. Any help in educating me is appreciated!! Waters in Florida must have been infested with dugongs for as many bones that are found. Dugongs in Florida died out at the time that manatees arrived. WHY???? Was it possible that manatees outcompeted the dugongs? I saw a cold snap was given as a reason for a particular population studied. Was this the reason for all dugongs? If so, why did the manatees survive the cold? Just askin!!! Mike
  12. Bone

    My father had found this bone about 2 years back, we think it is a dugong or manatee bone. It was found in Venice, Florida. Thanks to anyone who can identify.
  13. Dugong tooth?

    Found this and I think also a deer tooth? in the peace river. Dugong is my guess. Thanks for any input.
  14. Dugong rib predation marks?

    I noticed that fossil dugong rib bones from Florida often have boring worm holes in them, though these are not predators per se, and have heard that shark marks can be found. Any other kinds of marks I should look out for? How common is it to find shark bite marks on the ribs?
  15. I have been found relatively abundant fossil remains of what I think can be dugong (manatee) ribs and other related bones (?), in the Caribbean. Mostly end on pointed-ends. I have heard about the burial social preferences of manatees also. They are relatively common but any skull has been found yet. Can you help me to ID these bone-like fossils?? How to differenciate it even from fossil whales. Thanks deeply for all your help adorable Community !!
  16. Dugong rib bone?

    Is this a dugong rib bone? Thank you.
  17. Gainesville Ring Park Trip, July 27th

    Found myself with about an hour of free time yesterday afternoon and hoped in for some tooth hunting at Ring Park. There was some good rain on Monday that washed a lot of stuff into my usual spots so I got a good amount of medium/largish teeth in that time, and a few dugong bones and fossilized wood to boot! Was nice and cool under the trees too!
  18. Dugong Bones 1

    From the album Shark Teeth

    Dugong bones found in Alfred A Ring Park. I get an excess of dugong rib pieces and fossilized wood and other bones every time I visit Ring Park, but can't stop picking them up when I find them. The largest piece in the bottom right is three and a half inches.
  19. Bones and Dugong Rib

    From the album Shark Teeth

    Hogtowne creek at Alfred A Ring Park. Largest piece is a dugong rib piece, the others I am not so sure about.
  20. Any ideas what animal? Appears to be bone. Found on beach on Manasota Key FL. Measures 3" wide by a tad over 2.5 wide, about 1/2" thick. Appears to have part of edge broken off in one area but then worn rounded as other edges. Also note 2 marks (indentions) Could these be bite marks? Could this be from a vertebra? Learning so much on TFF and enjoying so much!
