  1. Oddly shaped mammal bone

    A curious bone. What bone has a right angle? Calcaneum? maybe Vertebrae process. I hope other have seen these. This would seem to belong to a medium to large mammal. All suggestions appreciated!!!
  2. Bone ID help

    We found this bone in a Florida river. We think it might be some kind of toe bone but we are not sure.
  3. What is this?

    I found these fossils in Gainesville. Could anyone tell me what they are?
  4. NE Florida Beach Find

    Found just south of Ponte Vedra, FL. It has some weight to it...
  5. Found on Florida Beach. Is it a bone?

    Can you identify this? I found it washed up on a beach at Amelia Island, Florida. Thanks. --Mike
  6. Found on the beach

    Found this at the beach near Jacksonville Florida - I was thinking it might be a shark tooth - its about 2 inches long. The picture is of it sitting next to my Gear Head Nano wireless mouse.
  7. This is a fossil i found washed up on the beach at Amelia Island, Florida. It looks like a molar of some sort. Can someone help identify? Thank you. --Mike
  8. What type of bone is this?

    This was found on the beach (Okaloosa Island-Fort Walton Beach Florida) after hurricane Nate. What is it?
  9. Hemipristis serra 05

    From the album Sharks and their prey ....

    Hemipristis serra North Central, Florida Occasionally there are discussions on the forum about a fossil's intrinsic value to science ..... but I know quite a few of us if not all of us are attracted to some of these tiny time capsules as forms of art, nature's pattern. Persisting beyond their biological task and evolving again for us as a thing of visual fascination and beauty.
  10. What is this ? Ear Bone (Newbie)

    Hello, I found these today walking along the beach along with about 200 teeth. I found a lot of bone fragments but wasn't sure what type of fossils are in the attached pictures. The one looks like an ear bone or something. Any help would be much appreciated... Thanks !!!
  11. Possible Fossils

    Hello everyone! My latest trip into the creeks of Gainesville proved quite successful, quite a few dozen shark teeth found, as well as some other questionable pieces. Can anyone confirm if these are fossils and if so what kind, or just stones? Collected from Rattlesnake Creek. Thank you and happy hunting!
  12. This tooth is a lower from the final tooth position (most posterior) on the left side as indicated by the bulge on one side of the tooth and lack of overlapping facet. The lingual face of the tooth is shown in the photo as indicated by the distinct delineation of the crown enamel and the root (less distinct on the labial surface). Teeth in a more anterior position have overlapping facets on both edges (with the symphyseal having both facets on the lingual face). The stratigraphic information for this locality is questionable and so is specified vaguely. The environment is marine shell hash that may span late Miocene-Pleistocene. Dr. Richard C. Hulbert, Jr. from FLMNH had this to say about the locality: There are two “formations” found near the surface in that area of the state. One is the middle to late Miocene Peace River Formation. The other “formation” possible is has been informally called the Okeechobee Formation by Tom Scott, and consists of the sandy shell beds formerly called the Caloosahatchee, Bermont, and Fort Thompson formations. On the geologic map of Florida published by the state’s geological survey it is not designated a formal name and is instead listed as Pliocene/Pleistocene shelly unit. Even if found in situ within the Plio/Pleistocene unit, such specimens could be reworked out of the Peace River Formation. If you are finding them in modern creek alluvium, it will be difficult to be sure which is their original depositional unit.
  13. Yesterday I had the pleasure of hunting with Garyc from Texas. This was the second time I've been able to hunt with him and it was a real pleasure to try and treat him to some fine Florida hunting. We haven't had as much rain as I was hoping for this week but we still managed some decent finds. My prize of the day is two part, last week I found a backpack full of giant land tortoise coming out of the side of a lake being dug and didn't think much of it tho I did grab it all to give to Calvinjenkins for his rock garden. This week walking the same spot I thought I saw a bunch of holmesina osteoderms but turns out they were turtle denticles....then the bones started coming out. I believe I got all that was there and think I have enough for most if not all of one foot. Would love if anyone could share some pics of one put together. As most Florida folks know we find tons of turtle material but is pretty rare to find anything together. Here's the foot pieced together as best I could for now. Here's the associated denticles
  14. Megs and more

    We went to a new spot and It paid off! My girlfriend found some great megs. The pics should fill in the rest.
  15. Thinking tapir tibia but not sure

    Found in Florida river. Previously found tapir in the area and was wondering if this was tapir tibia.
  16. A claw core

    Satisfying my fossil gene by sorting ziploc bags of old finds. When I am busy hunting (3-4 times a week) , I just dump lots of finds without looking too closely. That gives me the joy of discovery even when I can not go hunting. Here is a group photos of some small one that intrigue me. I am some what lazy and have not take small pictures of all these little one, but selected the one that seems to be a claw core. It is 1.25 x .6 inches. Hopefully others have found similar ones in the Peace River. I seems to have a denser core just sticking out in the 3rd photo down.
  17. Shark tooth id

    I was out in my backyard digging a hole to fill in some loway spots, and out of the corner of my eye I saw a tooth that I had dug up. I picked it up, and went inside to wash it off. I looked on many websites but no luck. please help
  18. Hogtown Creek Find

    Hello everyone! I am new to TFF and am very excited for my future in paleontology! On my first trip to Hogtown Creek in Gainesville, Florida I came across an unusual find. While I hear that shark teeth are plentiful, I instead found this small, porous inch long or so object. It was found on the side of the creek, partially buried in some sand. I am not sure what this could be, perhaps a fossil or just some sort of wood? If anyone has any tips on where to look for fossils in the Gainesville area (specifically near the University of Florida) please don't hesitate to let me know! Thank you and have a great day!
  19. Found a ulna and tibia in a Florida river. We have a few guesses but we really can't place it. They were found next to a Mastodon. Please help
  20. Quick trips to the creek

    Here's our finds from two trips this month (9/3 & 24). When Mrs. Beachbum and I want to go out for a couple of hours, we head up to Gainesville to our go to creek. It's not very wide, maybe 4' tops, and it's pretty shallow ,a couple of inches. If you want a work out, this is the creek to go to. It has plenty of sand , a few gravel bars, limestone close to the surface and a few spots that are knee deep. Working a long handle shovel through the sand to get to the gravel in this creek is hit or miss. These last two trips have been a hit for us as you can see. We ended up with some really nice finds. A whale vert, whale tooth ( thanks to macrophyseter and fifbrindacier for the id) , deer tooth ( thanks to harry pristis for the id) , a nice mako, a bunch of hemi's , my best meg to date from this creek, pieces of ray barbs and more. Who says you can't enjoy the outdoors while tooth hunting.
  21. I work as an insurance adjuster, and for the last few years I haven't left home to work. Well, my company made me an offer I couldn't refuse, so I'm down here in the Orlando area working. I'm super busy right now, but I would love to do some fossil hunting while down here. I would be up for about anything. I hear a lot about hunting rivers and streams. That would be cool, but a land site would work as well. I promise to keep any "secret spots" to my self, and will be happy to return a favor to anyone if they find themselves in Kansas some day. This week I'm too busy, but sometime next week I may be able to get away. Ramo
  22. Hey Gang, So need your opinions on this one...We find alot of nodules down here and this one has a particularly well digested lumpy look to it, more so than most. Any chance you think this might actually be a coprolite? It does have a few clam borings and along the top wrinkle you can see some irregular parallel tubes that make me wonder. All thoughts are welcome. Thanks! Regards, Chris
  23. My trip to lowes

    I went to my local Lowes Yesterday for bags of shell to resurface my garden paths sa part of my cleanup after hurricane Irma. Dumping them out made me laugh, there in front of me were a couple of nicer fossils than I had in my collection, which had come by much searching. Guess from now on, I'll start with the plastic bagged shell at Lowes. Lol
  24. Can someone help me identify these

    Can anybody please help me identify these? I have found several fossilized teeth before, these seem to be teeth, but I'm not sure. Normally the root and crown are disernable, but this seems to be almost the same. It also seems as if there is a worn serration on the root. The crown tip also has a slight indentation. They were found on the gulf coast of Florida, in Panama City beach. Thanks for your help!
  25. Need some help on a molar? Deer?

    Well Gang, here's the latest unknown I could use some help with. A surface find Manatee County, FL. Likely Plio-Pleistocene in age. It is good sized and just over 1 inch at its widest (2.8cm X 1.5cm) in occlusal view. Can anyone confirm it is or is not deer? Would love to hear the reasoning on how/why. Went thru some of the other Deer/llama ID posts but I'm still unsure. I'd love to have genus if either is possible if its not deer. Let me know if any other measurements/views are needed. Thanks, Chris
