  1. Bone fragments

    Hi guys! I've been wondering for awhile if there's any possible way to ID some of the bone fragments that I have. Obviously some of them are just long flat fragments, but some of them seem to have identifying features or sockets/ joints. I know these pictures aren't the best, but if you have any thoughts on any of them please let me know. If you want more in-depth pictures of any of them I'd be happy to post them!
  2. Gainesville fossil?

    I found this digging in Gainesville and I have no idea what it is
  3. Gainesville water level after Irma

    I live in Florida but it is still an hour and a half drive to Gainesville. I can't find out if the water is still high from the hurricane or not. Is there anyone that lives by that can tell me. Thank you
  4. What is this?

    I found these fossils in Gainesville. Could anyone tell me what they are?
  5. Odd Gainesville find

    Just left Gainesville, found this oddity while we were hunting and I was hoping to see if anyone can help me ID it. We are still driving, so if better pictures are needed, please let me know. It is the size of a dime.
  6. 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!
  7. 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!
  8. 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
  9. Was hoping someone would be able to help ID this small mammal tooth I found while sifting in a Gainesville Creek, Florida. It's about 1.7cm depth (crown to root) with a 1.0cm wide crown. Any thoughts?
  10. Another small tooth find from the creeks of Gainesville, Florida. I thought this was a small fragment of lemon shark tooth originally, but on closer inspection, I think it might be something different. This thing is tiny - only 1.0cm from root to tip. I thought it might be a basking shark but would love your help?
  11. First time in Gainesville!

    had a blast exploring and sifting through the creeks!
  12. What are these fossils from Florida

    What are these fossils I have found them in Gainesville Florida in hog town creek I have no idea what they are.
  13. Gainesville trip

    My Memorial day weekend finds from Hogtown Creek in Gainesville.
  14. Hogtown Creek finds - mammal tooth id?

    Some of my finds from Hogtown Creek today in Gainesville. Any idea what the mammal tooth is? Horse??
  15. HogTown Creek, Teeth and Mammal

    Good Afternoon everyone, I took a trip to Hogtown Creek in Gainesville Florida a few months ago and had pretty good success. Of my lot, I found a few fossils (pictured below) that I am having difficulties identifying. I don't want to mislabel them so I figured I'd turn to the experts. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. The ruler's marks are centimeters (top) and inches (bottom). This is my first time posting so hopefully this format is acceptable. I labeled each of the findings to help with referencing them in the replies. I am happy to take additional photos upon request. Thank you
  16. Finding Megalodon Teeth in Gainesville

    Hello, My girlfriend and I have been on the hunt for a megalodon tooth for sometime now. We would like to add one as a capstone piece to our collection. We are in the Gainesville area. Can anyone provide tips on finding big teeth? We are familiar with several of the creeks here, but have not yet found anything even remotely close. I am aware that megalodon teeth are here, as this fellow found a nice one last march: Should we be digging with a shovel, or continue hunting on the surface by sight? Any tips/spots/techniques would be most appreciated. Thanks!
  17. I have gone to Gainesville a couple times and I have found small shark teeth and megalodon fragments, but I would love to find a full megalodon tooth for myself. I have 2 megalodon teeth neither one I found and they are not fully complete. I'm asking if anyone can tell me of a good spot to go to. Or maybe even if someone like to meet me somewhere in Gainesville to go hunting. Thank you
  18. I'd like to go today but am also free tomorrow
  19. I'm new to fossil hunting and I live about an hour drive to Gainesville Fl. I want to hunt there because I'm very close and I don't know much about the area and would like to know where and when to hunt for fossils. Anything would help. Thank you
  20. I like Gainesville because I'm only about an hour away. But a lot of the places are picked clean. Can someone help me out and tell me how to use google maps to find remote places?
  21. I was wondering I have went in the creeks of Gainesville and I've taken a trip to the Peace River. Is there anything in between them. I have been to rock springs but there isn't much there to find and they won't let you dig. I just want to find a place I can go and I don't have to drive over an hour to get to. Please anything helps. Thank you
  22. Recent Hogtown day

    Hey everyone, Here's some of the better teeth from my recent fossil-hunting visit to Hogtown Creek in Gainesville. I believe the top left tooth is a Mako (unfortunately it's broken). I'm also guessing the top right is a small Meg tooth -- maybe a posterior one? Both of these were found in a very clay-like sediment and I am having some difficulty getting them cleaned. I tried vinegar and water, but the colors just aren't coming through. Any ideas? Anyone interested in meeting up at a Gainesville creek sometime in January? I'm open any weekend except the weekend of the 21st.
  23. Hi guys. I went to Gainesville Saturday to check out the local creeks. We spent most of the day at Alfred A Ring park and then briefly explored a few of the less accessible creeks (Possum, Rattlesnake). Besides easily identifiable small shark teeth and ray mouth plates, etc, I found a large chunk of bone in Possum Creek and this a strange lumpy item in Hogtown Creek. I have no idea what the lumpy item is or if it's even a fossil. It's much rougher in texture than any fossil I've ever found, which makes me think it's not actually a fossil, but I was hoping you guys could help me ID it regardless. Thanks! Steph
  24. Gainesville finds

    Here are a few small fossils that a friend and I found while hunting the creeks in Gainesville, FL a couple weeks ago with Sir.tommy.the.toad. I know that two of them are toe bones, one is a tooth, and one is a vertebra. What I can't figure out is what animals they came from and am hoping that someone here recognizes them. The scale is in mm and hopefully the pictures are clear enough. They looked clear on my phone but once I started editing them on the computer some of them became slightly blurry. I'm posting each fossil separately.
