  1. Florida Peace River Fossil unknowns

    Howdy all! Here are a few things I found on the Peace River in Florida that I am not sure what they are. Any help would be appreciated! 1. This may or may not be anything: But is so oddly symetrically shaped that I think it must be SOMETHING: 2. A knee cap of something? 3. I thought it was bone, but the striations are odd and there are rings on the end: 4. Is this an Alligator tooth? 5. I have no idea what the heck this is:
  2. Finally got photos of the fossils I found in Florida! I was invited back to Florida with a friend - a working trip to get her family house ready for sale. She was kind enough to let us take a little time to do some fossil hunting! Since I had done Caspersen and Venice Beach last time (finding the requisite shark teeth and ray teeth and some other fun stuff) I wanted to "dig a little deeper". I contacted a fossil guide and he just happened to have a group going out the day after we got there. So we drove an hour or so up to the little town of Wachula and met up with Fred Mazza. his canoes and 9 other fossil hunters. We proceeded to paddle a mile and half upstream (hadn't done any paddling in probably 10 years! So that was a workout - but nothing compared to what was to come!) We got to to "the spot" and Fred gives us all nail belts and a sifting box with pool noodles attached that we clipped onto our belts.....and a shovel. Standing hip deep in water, we shoveled gravel from the bottom of the river and sifted for FIVE HOURS!! Having no idea what to expect, I have to say, I did not expect that. hahhahahah! What Fun! It was exhausting but it was addicting...you never knew what treasure you were going to find in the next shovel full! I found over 100 Shark Teeth, including a broken megaladon "classic" tooth and i think some meg side teeth, lots of lovely ray teeth, and happily, some of the other things I REALLY wanted to find. a glyptodon scute! Plus I found a tapir tooth, a dolphin tooth, some beautiful turtle bits, and lots of other good stuff. Glpytodon Scute! Meg tooth: Tapir Tooth: Dophin Tooth: Burr fish mouthplate Turtle Shells: Ray Teeth: I also found a few nice Beach finds at Venice and Caspersen. A couple of nice Teeth (plus a bunch of well worn ones). A Camel Tooth: And a Snake Vertebrae (I think)
  3. Caspersen Beach

    Here are some others I found the same day.
  4. Peace River Unknowns

    Having returned from a lovely vacation to Florida, I have examined some fossils that were brought back with me. There are always unknowns in my collection , but year by year I require less and less assistance in IDing finds!!! This year, I am down to these five: 1. A large bone with odd joint surfaces. Not sure of the owner and not sure what bone I am looking at! 2. A tooth that was fractured. Gator? The reason for thinking of the ridge running down the tooth in the first picture. The 2nd pic is of the fractured surface. 3. Odd looking bone. Again the owner of this bone and location of it eludes me. Navicular bone from some form of horse??? 4. Turtle foot pad? Initially I thought it was just a rock, but then I noticed the crease in the upper part of the first picture. 5. This one has me totally stumped. Texture of bone but looks like a molar with roots and a depression on the opposite side. Maybe nothing.
  5. Tooth?

    I found this on the bank of a retention pond. I have found horse, deer and mammoth teeth in the same area. Not sure if this is a tooth or not.
  6. Found at Caspersen Beach

    Looking for some help on identifying this Jem. Been researching and have not found anything yet. thanks in advance
  7. Fossilized shell

    I would like help telling me something about this full almost perfect fossilized shell I just found, and where I can see more like it.

  9. Meg Symphyseal tooth?

    Went to the Peace River yesterday to beat the cold front and rain for a very pleasant 85 degree day of digging with friends. My streak of poor performance continues but I found one item I thought might be of interest. First, the take for the day: Now in December of 2016 I found a small meg tooth that @MarcoSr identified as a meg symphyseal tooth, which Tony @ynot picked up at auction. This little tooth looks quite similar to me, but has a somewhat shorter blade. Is it another symphyseal tooth, or just an ordinary posterior? I may need to get a better picture of it.
  10. Peace River Femur

    I had the privilege of a day on the water with JCBShark and Shellseeker. When I found this bone, they both thought modern. It sounds fossil like when I hit it against something hard but the flame test showed that at best it is old, in that a slight but definite smell permeated the air when put against a flame. Whether a "young" fossil or modern, I still want to try and ID this. The prominent ball just stands out to me as being different. The lesser trochanter is fractured off.
  11. Weird?

    Went on a hunt yesterday and found these teeth. Can you please help me id them.

  21. I was sorting thru prior finds from Cookie Cutter creek when I came across this tiny osteoderm that I must not have identified at the time. Am I wrong, or is this the most minuscule Armadillo osteoderm ever?! What else could it be? Can it be ID'd to species? It really is only 2 1/2mm.
  22. Rare Shark Tooth

    If it is what I think, it is only the 3rd one of these I have found in 10 years, and all of them have been broken. I found my first in May of 2013 and 2nd in December of 2015. Neither of those finds had any serrations. Almost everything that I was finding was broken, broken Mako, broken GW, broken tigers, and many broken Bull shark teeth. I had one good upper hemi.... Here is a photo with a broken Tiger shark tooth. On picking it out of the sieve, I stopped immediately. Point and serrations like a tiger, but something was odd... Even though I was finding lots of tigers, I have chances of this one being a tiger at 15%... Here is the tooth.... and a blow_up of the serrations one one edge... The broken outer edge is .75 inch. Imagine it would have been 1.2 inch if unbroken.
  23. I'll start by saying I'm not looking for anyone's honey hole, but if you want to share please private message me. I'll be in Florida (Tampa/Venice mostly) with my family (coming from Utah) in late July/early August. Had hoped to hit up the Peace but I've heard it's no good because the water is high. I have 3 kids who love to fossil hunt and dig around for treasures so I'm disappointed that the Peace won't work out. What I want to know is if there are any safe spots in smaller creeks that I can access (legally) during that time of year and bring my kids for a few hours? Rather not do any guided trips, but would be ok to pay to access someone's land. We did the beach stuff (caspersen, manasota) last year and now looking to try our hand on a creek. Would be happy to give some tips on Utah spots in exchange for any info. Thanks.
  24. Petrified piece of a boat?

    Need help identifying this
  25. Fossil Identification help

    Any help with identification would be appreciated! Found this item on the beach of Amelia Island. Has a nice symmetry about it. I thought it could be a fossil scute of some sort. Measures about 1.5 inches across. any ideas? Thanks.
