  1. Took my first trip to the Peace River today and found plenty of fossil fragments and shark teeth. These are the items that seemed most interesting and most of these are hard for me to identify. I have more pictures of all these if you need to see other angles. I didn't want to overload this post if they're not needed. The top left bone piece looks broken at the large end, but mostly intact on the thiner end. Maybe the side piece of a vertebrate? Also thinking it might be from the pelvis area? I really have no clue. The top right bone piece is definitely the end piece of a arm or leg bone. I'm hoping the middle top piece with the grooves is part of a mammoth tooth. The middle left piece seemed different then all the other bone fragments I found. Maybe a tooth? The bottom middle piece looks like what I imagine a breast bone on a turtler would look like. I'm almost embarrassed to include the "rock" on the bottom left but it feels like fossil. It has two perfect cut holes cut in it, almost like where teeth would be. I want to believe it's a jaw fragment, but fear it's probably a rock... The other "rock" looking piece on middle top right seems shaped to well to be a rock. It's rounded evenly on each side and has an edge to it. Thanks for looking and any feedback. If any of these look interesting to you, I'd be glad to post more pictures of any of any them.
  2. Any thoughts on what this little tooth (I think it's a tooth) might have belonged to? It was found near Venice Beach in Florida.
  3. These are from near Venice Beach Florida. Are they fish scales, something else, unidentifiable fragments etc? Any suggestions are appreciated.
  4. Found this today in slough adjoining Myakka river. It is round but straight, about 2" long and nearly 1/2" in diameter. I did find a dolphin tooth and several small (<1") shark teeth plus smaller bone fragments (area has larger mammal fragments nearby. Education appreciated! Thanks, Calvin
  5. Hi all, Last weekend at the fossil fair in Ede I bought a big box full of great fossils, but I need your help with some of them. Here are some sharkteeth that I bought. They were found in Florida, but no location was given. Any Florida hunters recognize those colors? They are from the Miocene. I'm assuming some (first picture) are Negaprion, but I don't know the species, and I don't know about the other teeth. All help is welcome! Max
  6. Hello once again! I've finally tried to identify the shark teeth that Ken (@digit) sent my way from the Peace River in Florida. Please let me know of any errors that I've made (I'm sure I've made many!), and I'd also love some help in identifying some of the more broken specimens that will appear in the final picture. Thanks so much! Monica PS - For labeling purposes, should I label all of these as being from the Pliocene since they are marine fossils from the Peace River, FL? As well, would it be possible to identify these little guys down to genus or even species? Thanks again! Photo #1: Sand tiger? Photo #2: Lemon? Photo #3: Tiger? Photo #4: Snaggletooth? Photo #5: Mako? Photo #6: Megalodon? Photo #7: Stingray teeth? Photo #8: Unknown - please help!
  7. Found in the Peace River basin
  8. So I tried something different today and followed a slough that feeds the Myakka River. Slough in FL usually means a creek that doesn't flow all year, and now that it is the dry season you can walk the bottom of dry river beds. I'm trying to put some of my limited understanding of river hydro and fossil movement into practice. Commonly you are told to search the curves, look under fallen trees, between rocks and search were the water flow becomes slower. I've only had luck with velocity transition areas (narrow to wide). Another surprise is the depth of fossil deposits in a slough, 8-9" under sand but I think this may make sense if you realize that during flood season the creek bed is furiously moving material but as it drys, more & more sediment layers cover the (desirable) fossil material. And the last surprise for me has been "caves" or "tunnels", in two separate locations there is a ground opening that obviously goes down stream but neither appeared to have an exit. I haven't been brave enough to try to explore these "caves" yet as they are pretty small and I imagine they may have some summer inhabitants that I'd rather not meet in a confined space (but the thoughts of a potential fossil bonanza is really tempting). No real treasure discovered, other than the un identified tooth (posted to the ID page) and a non fossilized rabbit jaw bone. Calvin
  9. had a blast exploring and sifting through the creeks!
  10. Hi Everyone, Looking for a little help identifying a tooth I purchased at a recent Florida fossil show. It was labelled Mastodon but I was wondering if it might be Gomphothere? It was found in one of the rivers in Florida I understand which means it could have been either as I understand it. Couldn't find an easy identifier online. Thanks in advance Tom
  11. So here's another unidentified Florida scrap I found a couple years ago. Age guess is Mio, Plio-Pleistocene. I had initially thought it might just be another broken piece off a vert and set it aside but having looked at the base? recently I'm wondering if it might be another crazy ear component or something else--maybe even a whale petrosal but I'm just guessing . Since its got so many weird surfaces/angles I tried to rotate it and give you a number of views...Seems to have a couple surfaces that appear to be undamaged and the last two shots show the base. About 50mm along the longest side. Any thoughts/ID's are much appreciated. Thanks! Regards, Chris
  12. Hi, Looking for a little help identifying this small fossil. I found it in the Peace River, Florida at the weekend. There were plenty of stingray and pufferfish mouth plates along with turtle shell, but this looked a little different. It has the hallmarks of a fish mouthplate but would love some help. It's about half an inch. Thanks for your help as always. Tom
  13. So with much reading of the helpful info here on TFF, I was able to put some of the knowledge into practice and finally found a whole megladon! Thank all you contributors very much, (esp ShellSeeker & Sacha for your reports & photos). Myakka is a bit closer to me than Peace River but I can see several reasons why this river is not as inviting. Much more wild life (3 Snakes & 1 gator), the river has drastic depth transitions (knee deep to over your head in 6"), it is usually turbid (tidal effects?). Much of the fossil material has become embedded in the limestone so they aren't as pristine. Below is about 6 hours total effort (about 3 hours heavy digging). Thank you TFF! Calvin
  14. I found 2/24/17 this at Englewood Beach Florida (Gulf), while hunting shark teeth, and it looks like a tooth of some kind, but almost looks like it is carved. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.
  15. Hello everybody- first post here: I took a dive trip off of Venice Beach Florida last week and was hoping somebody could tell me what I found. The first three pictures show what I'm pretty sure is some kind of tooth. It's about 3-1/4" long and about 3/8" X 3/4" on the wide end. The second object looks like some kind of to me but i'm not sure. It's just a little over an inch long and about 5/8" X 1" on the end. I would appreciate any help with this. Thanks
  16. I was about to throw out a broken 2 inch shell when I noticed a dark object lodged inside. It is about 1/2 inch square. dark black/brown, opaque and hard. I had hoped it was amber but too hard. Won't scratch with a dental pick and sinks in salted water. Shell came from piles to be used to pave parking lot @ Bradenton Beach, FL (See Bradenton beach Fossil shells) I am reasonably certain that there is no mixing of any recent material. Have any SMR Pinecrest collectors ever seen this material? Any help in ID or other steps I could take to identify it would be appreciated. will attach pictures. Thanks
  17. This turned up in my screen. It has an unusual look to it so I don't want to toss it until I can get a better idea of what it might be. The inside looks like dentin instead of bone. It's 2" long.
  18. Any help or hints on these two teeth? Thanks!
  19. wondering if this is a procoracoid from a turtle.
  20. Was out looking for fossilized shark teeth today along a beach on the east side of Amelia Island in north Florida. Came across this instead. Don't know what it is. Conical in shape with a slight curve to it. Is it a fossilized tooth? From what? Any help appreciated. Cannot figure out what it came from. Thanks!
  21. Found in the Peace River in florida. Shallow water, about 1 1/2 ft. deep gravel.
  22. Found recently at Venice Beach Florida. Any idea what this is - possibly a worn horse tooth?
  23. Hey I'm a new member and I need some help with identifying this fossil! I've had this for a few years now but I just found this website and am so curious if someone might know what this is. I found in at a beach in southeastern Florida, and have never seen something like it since. on the other side of it, it looks as though it broke at some point (this is how I found it) I would be so appreciative if someone could tell me what this is!
  24. We are a group of geology majors (with various passions of paleontology) that will be down on the Peace next week for 5 days in the river. Were bringing a kayak and all the screens etc... and are going to rent another canoe once we get there, but were still trying to decide exactly where to head. Its been a couple years since I was there(other two are newbies to Florida fossils) and we are thinking North of Zolfo Springs? Anyone going to be out on the river March 5th through the 9th?
  25. I was out hunting yesterday. One of my frequent finds in the Peace River is horse teeth , usually Equus .sp. I found one yesterday. Typical Equus upper molar. EquusExample#1 I am very interested in horse fossil teeth but have focused on pre-Equus. To tell the truth I just do not know a lot or can tell differences between Equus variations like Equus Simplicidens or Equus Complicatus, etc but I am about to learn!! My education should focus on Florida because that is what I tend to find, but I am interested in but I am interested in any publications that can effectively differentiate Equus .sp. I will start by searching TFF and checking out Harry's gallary. A week ago a hunting friend gave me a box of horse teeth he had found all of which he believed to be Equus. Actually he wants the teeth back . I am just doing the identification & analysis. Lots of teeth!!!! My 1st separation was 1) large uppers 2) lowers, 3) not fully erupted 4) m3 lowers, 5) M3 uppers, and a few odd ones. While many teeth are worn or chipped, there are some fantastic teeth like this one below. EquusExample#2 Note what I refer to as the "squiggles". I generally have used these to differentiate pre-Equus horse species and I am wondering what variations I might see in equus.
