  1. Unidentified Florida Canine

    Hey everyone! I am thinking about purchasing this unidentified canid canine! Before I do, I was wondering if anyone has any idea of what animal this tooth came from? It was found in Florida (there was no specific locality) and below you can see a picture with measurements. Any response is appreciated! Thanks!
  2. Fossil ID #4

    This next fossil is long and thin, with lots of detail on each side. It has a slight bend and distinct marks on one end that made me think it might be a tooth of some kind, but maybe not from something in the ocean/sea. Any thoughts?
  3. Fossil ID #3

    This long, black, and concave fossil looks like a fin, flipper, or something to that magnitude because of how smooth and dynamic it looks and feels. Any suggestions for this?
  4. Fossil ID #2

    This looks like the half of a Meg tooth that has lost all of its enamel. I haven't seen one like this before, but it has all of the characteristics of a meg tooth. Can anyone confirm or debunk this?
  5. Help with Fossil ID

    I found this while walking on the beach before sunset today. Need help identifying it, if possible. Based on limited research and comparisons, the fossil is no doubt a vertebrae and looks very similar to some I have seen associated with a Mosasaur. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ANY HELP OR IDEAS THAT MAY BE GIVEN!!!
  6. Is This Fossilized Coral or Bone or Cement

    Hello Everyone, I am so thankful for your insight. I have recently purchased a few books on Indian Artifacts and look forward to reading them so as to stop pestering. Anyway, In Florida on my own property I found several interesting and beautiful things after Irma. Our property on Marco took a direct hit and many of the trees on our property and the Seawall went into our garage. I ventured outside to see what I could find. Can someone please tell me if this is Fossilized Coral or Fossilized Bone? My brother thinks it is cement. I think its an animal skull, and my husband thinks it coral. In picture 4 there are several deep gouges or ciuts. I will be posting some other pictures of things I found in Florida and any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  7. A curious Tooth

    Found last week in a "mixture" environment that has Pleistocene and Miocene fossils, more of the latter. Curious because the root end (photo #1) seems to have an odd dentine, cementum circular pattern. Curious because the tip (photo #2) seems to have a narrow enamel or dentine covering over a core Curious because in photo #3 , right at the break, there appear to be small "crimps" Curious because I have not seen a fossil tooth like this one. My initial reaction was canine, but incisor is a possibility. All assistance and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Jack
  8. Hi! I just returned home from the Venice Beach area in Florida and I was curious if anyone one could tell me what these broken fragments could have been. I’m a newbie here so any other recommendations on how to identify are welcomed thanks in advance
  9. Last weekend was my first trip to the Peace River. And now that the rain is coming in I am in a rush to get as many trips in as I can. Today was my second trip. Went to the same spot. It went great, I'm estimating over 1000 teeth about twice the amount as my first trip. On and off showers, the river is up about a foot since the weekend. Top finds: Broken Meg Large Sand Shark Large Tiger 1" Alligator Broken Hemi (would have been awesome if it was complete)
  10. Hey all, It's been a while! I stopped posting on the forum for a bit, but the fossil hunting never ceased! Here are a few photos of some of the fossils we've found over the past few months (all found at the same location). Our biggest prize was obviously the juvenile meg (Photos #1 and #2). We're still holding out on this spot for a huge, adult meg...but until then, we've kept ourselves busy finding plenty of bull shark teeth - with amazing coloration (Photo #3)...who knew I could love yellow teeth this much?! In general, the fossils we find at this location have the most remarkable coloration; almost all of the dugong bones we find (and that's A LOT) have a deep red tint to them. In fact, this tiger shark tooth we found has hints of that same red color (Photo #4). What's interesting is that, on one side of the river, the teeth we find are tinted red, but on the other side they are either blue or yellow (small blue lemon shark tooth pictured in Photo #5). And can I just mention how many, and how amazing, the fossilized gar scales we find here are (Photo #6)? It's incredible! Happy hunting! -AG
  11. Hello, Novice here. I found these in the Peace River recently, would like assistance with their ID. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  12. First time to the peace river, after reading everything on here I was dying to get out there. I rented a canoe and stopped about a 1/4 mile from the launch on a gravel pit. Ended up staying in that spot all day. We maybe found 1000 teeth in total. We weren't sure if finding small teeth was a good sign for finding larger teeth or if it is irrelevant. I think I found a few baby megalodons and broken 2 Broken Makos. Not completely sure however. And 3 alligator/crocodile teeth. Nothing larger than about an inch. I plan on going back this week to look for larger teeth before this weeks rain brings the water up to high.
  13. EOS small treasures

    Beautiful day Friday. Sun was shining. Besides sprinkles, rain held off until late afternoon. I am finding interesting fossils. Let me try 2. I have seen similar previously, but never identified. Maybe others have, Then a tooth: Have there been occurrences of Aulophyster like small teeth on the east coast of the US? @Boesse Like I implied, interesting fossils.

  20. After a two month Covid lockdown hiatus, I finally managed to hit the river again yesterday. Loaded up the truck and headed out to Gardner. I wanted to spend some more quality time at the same spot where I found a ground sloth phalanx on a previous trip - I was hoping to find more of that sloth. This spot is a little further away than my usual Gardner spots, so it sees less pressure and I suspected some megs might be hiding there because I kept finding broken frags and lots of other shark species. A couple of notes - 1) The long dirt road leading to the boat ramp has been resurfaced by the county. It's a much more pleasant ride and a lot less bumpy now. As recently as my last trip in March, that road was pretty darn rough and you would vibrate your vehicle to death if you drove over 5 or 10mph. The county laid down some new gravel and re-graded it. It's much better now and won't tear up your suspension. 2) When we arrived yesterday morning, the USGS Zolfo gauge said the height was 4 feet and the flow was 52cfs. That gauge is also a pretty good indicator for what to expect at Gardner. It was very low. The lowest I have personally seen it there. Long stretches were too shallow to paddle, so be prepared to do a lot of walking and pulling the kayak/canoe behind you. Also, the low flow rate was making the water very soupy and cloudy. Visibility was poor, even in the shallow spots. It wasn't a full-blown algae bloom yet, but getting there. When the gauge height starts getting below 4.25, then it's almost too low to hunt. Personally, my sweet spot is between 4.5 and 5.0. If you are going to hunt Gardner, keep the gauge in mind and adjust your hunting accordingly. Diving or snorkeling in that soup would have been unproductive. So, after some paddling and a lot of walking, we (my wife and I), arrived at the hunting spot. I spent about 5 hours there and probably turned over about 75-100 sifters worth of gravel. Some other hunters had already hit the spot, because I saw shovel marks and spoil piles. That explains why I wasn't finding as much as I had hoped. Even being more remote and seeing less pressure, this spot still gets hunted. I really need to invest in a motor to get back and forth to the really distant places. I found a nice handful of smaller teeth, a nice large thresher with good color, and one decent megalodon. My first meg since 2018. I was pretty happy about that, since I seemed to be cursed lately with megs. I couldn't buy a meg to save my life over the last two seasons. I found a few half-megs, but this was my first intact decent one in quite a while. It has a little bit of root damage, but is 95% complete and about 2 inches. Not spectacular, but it broke the snide. We only saw one small gator and one turtle. Lots of birds were everywhere and there were a lot of butterflies fluttering around the wildflowers - a lot of yellow wildflowers (coreopsis), so that was pretty to see along the banks. We also saw a great blue heron catch and swallow a small snake. That was pretty neat to see. My wife is still downloading the photos, so I will post those later. My back still hurts, but we had a great time and enjoyed getting out. Surprisingly, for a friday on a holiday weekend, the ramp and river were pretty quiet. We only saw a small handful of other people the entire day. I suspect this weekend will be busier. PS - a couple of hours after we left, a storm hit the Peace basin and the river jumped a foot.
  21. 2 teeth from Florida

    Hello, The first tooth was found in the Gulf Coast of Florida at Manasota Beach, in Charlotte County. It is wave worn. It is 1” (25.4mm) Second one is 5/8” (15mm) and was found in Venice at a landsite. Thanks for looking!
  22. Giant Beaver Molar Peeling

    I recently purchased a pack of gravel from Florida filled with Miocene and Pleistocene fossils. Among the fossils was a giant beaver molar. I rinsed it off with water, left it to dry and came back to find that has started to peel. Has this happened to anyone before? How would you recommend consolidating the tooth so that it stops peeling? I have tried to use Butvar before but I have never seemed to get the right ratio to protect the fossil while avoiding the shine. Would you recommend dunking the entire tooth in the solution or to apply some using a dropper or paint brush? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  23. Peace River unknowns

  24. Hello again, This is an interesting find found at the causeway in Tampa Bay, Florida last year. Looks like calcite covered coral or a sand fused fulgurite which I'd prefer to add to my collection, lol. What do you guys think? Thanks!
  25. Hello, I found this very unusual seashell on a Tampa Bay beach, Florida. It measures 1 3/4" long by about an 1 inch wide with distinct whorls. It appears to be agatized like the coral I find and is translucent when held up to the light. I than noticed bubbles inside of it which must be water? I spoke to a mineral and fossil vendor and he said it was a enhydro and very rare. What do you think? How was this created and what kind of seashell do you think it is? Thanks! Lynn
