  1. Owner of this Inner Ear Bone?

    Who owns this Inner ear bone? I found this on Amelia Island, Florida. I also found some shark teeth and lots of bone fragments. These fossils come from the dredges that cut into Miocene? formations and probably other younger formations. I imagine it is from a cetacean or other aquatic mammal. It is in GREAT shape, with lots of detail, including the inner cochlea. It is my favorite find of the trip. Let me know what you all think! I am a noob with this younger stuff. Mammals were still a 200 million year old length of time away from my expertise. @Boesse

  11. Fossilized Grazing Mammal Tooth?

    Hello! Interning archaeologist, and we don't have fossils on hand for a comparison collection! I came across this partial tooth in a bag of faunal material. Could anyone help me out? I'm not familiar with fossil fauna, but I know this was some sort of grazer. Width is about half an inch. Much appreciated!
  12. Trace fossil/burrow

    Guessing this is a invert burrow of some sort. Surface find Sarasota Cnty, Florida. Unknown age/formation. Mio-Plio-Pleistocene. Interesting striations encircle the specimen that are at an angle to the overall length of the tear drop shaped specimen. Wondering if anyone knows what ichnogenus this might be and who/what created it. I've seen a few of these over the years but this is the best example I have. Thanks. Regards, Chris
  13. Venice Beach Fossil ID Help

    Great trip with my daughter to Venice Sunday, she did pretty well. She found a good size bone and I'm unsure of what a few are. Thanks for the help in advance!
  14. On my recent trip to Fort Meyers / Sanibel area, I came across a few dump sites of shell material from what I believe is the Caloosahatchee Formation. I always like to take shells that are full of sediment so I can clean them out and search for very tiny shells that are in great condition. It is amazing the diversity of shells that I find.
  15. What is this?

    I found these fossils in Gainesville. Could anyone tell me what they are?
  16. So I have these 2 incomplete shark teeth that I find really interesting and you might too as they almost look shredded/exploded. Finding perfect teeth is the goal but these hold my imagination and I only run across these kind once in awhile. So they are surface finds from Manatee Cnty, Florida. Miocene to Plio-Pleistocene in age? Neither has a root and the interior sections of the teeth are eroding and pieces of the enamel are still hanging on, especially the meg. Do you think this sort of delaminating is suggestive of just poor preservation--can any particular taphonomy/history be inferred? I've seen a couple other threads about this subject but I throw it out there for these two examples. I havent found smaller tooth shark examples doing this but I suspect they are out there and may just be not as sturdy to survive. I do have several completely small hollow examples but these seem different. All comments/speculation welcomed on these 2 teeth. Thanks. Regards, Chris
  17. Conus waltonensis

    A common species but found only in the Shoal River Formation
  18. Conus gardnerae

    Very small adults found only in the Oak Grove Sand.
  19. Titanis Phalanx

    This is the third phalanx from the Terror Bird Titanis walleri, found at a Blancan site in a North Central Florida river.
  20. Florida Tooth

    This was found in the Peace River. It looks like a molar to me. My father thinks it is a whale tooth. Help us resolve this. I think the long pointy part is the root. Here are three photos. You can see growth rings in the bulbous end.
  21. Fossil Hunting - Florida

    Hi all, For us Europeans, Florida is a very exotic place. This may not be your view though, especially if you are from there (as many members here are). Anyways, I am really excited, because this winter (around x-mas) I will be going with my family to Orlando! (the hotel is less exciting: it's the Disney World one ). Anyways, we have a few days to go fossil hunting in one of the most fossiliferous regions in the world. We have already booked a trip with Fossil Voyages, owned by our very forum admin @Cris and his friend Kyle, which I'm sure will be a very exciting moment. But we have still a few extra days free for fossil hunting. We will surely go to the famous Peace River at some point, but having a few extra good hunting locations will be good. Though these may be, in your eyes, very basic/usual hunting locations, I am looking for your favorite hunting spots in Florida. So please jot down in the replies any good locations, and tips you have about them! Any info is welcome (Not too far from Orlando though, we don't want to spend the day in the car). Also, meeting up with some of you, and maybe even hunting with them, would be great too!!! I will, obviously, make some nice reports of the hunts afterwards. Thanks in advance, Max
  22. Gainesville fossil material

    I've gone to Gainesville a few times and I haven't found many megalodon teeth, a bunch of fragments is about it. Anyways I'm going for a nice megalodon tooth. I'm not asking you guys to give up a spot but what kind of material should I look in to find a good preserved fossil? Like a good size megalodon or a horse tooth or anything of that nature. I have found that the rock rich spots have lots of smaller shark teeth but nothing big. I've seen some people look in a clay like material and find good preserved fossils but what should I look for? I need some help thanks
  23. Florida Jaw Bone?

    Here is another Peace River find. I think it is part of a jaw bone. I know identification is difficult for partial pieces but this has a bulb that has what looks like a spot where a tooth had been. The bulb shape is on the right. The next photo shows it from the top and the last is from the side that is palm down.
  24. Vert Identification

    I had a fantastic day yesterday afternoon, visiting and viewing artifacts and fossil private collections from the Peace River watershed. I was hosted by some true experts who also had fantastic collections spanning the last 30-40 years and I was accompanied by some TFF friends. Gorgeous and rare artifacts, a lots of Bone Valley Megs, rare Peace River fossils and even had time in the mid afternoon to practice toss lances with a Atatl stick into Archery targets. A cold icy draft after the exercise and a bunch of good memories. I never take enough photos, but did promise to attempt an identification. So, a native artifact sticking through a section of backbone. My question is which animal has a vertebrae section that looks like this.... Sorry about photos -- but you do get to see some reed and willow "arrows" with replaceable darts in the background. All comments appreciated. Jack
  25. My girlfriend, Valerie and I were visiting my aunt in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is 90 and lives in a senior residence. I wasn't planning to go fossil hunting or even thinking about fossils. However, on our last night there, we were walking in the neighborhood to burn off a few calories when I spotted a number of fossil shells in front of an apartment complex. We spent about half an hour searching the shells for complete ones in good condition- found over twenty species. Valerie got into it too and found some excellent specimens. After that we began spotting fossil shells everywhere. It's amazing how much you don't see unless you're really looking. Since this isn't our usual stomping ground- could use some ID help with these:
