  1. 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)
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. Hi All! I hope everyone is healthy and safe. I am on the West Coast of Florida with my family & the kayaks. We were on the Peace River the other day and it’s the happiest I’ve seen my 2 teens in many moons. It reaffirms my belief that fossil hunting is the ultimate hobby. Doing your homework of geology and geography before the trip, discussing climate, weather, property rights, geology and paleontology on the hunt, getting exercise, less screen time all good stuff. Plus it’s a social distancing approved activity. Score! We are staying in Punta Gorda tonight and I’m looking at the Peace River empty into Charlotte Harbor. We are looking for somewhere close by to put in tomorrow for a day trip. I’ve read Shell Creek is a great fossiling spot. Has anyone tried it? If so, any recommendations on where to put in? We went to Arcadia the other day and passed over Joshua Creek. It seemed very high but was wondering if it could be a viable hunting spot. A word about Arcadia for those of you considering a trip- we put in at the public boat ramp and went right. We went less than a mile before we got so fossil crazy we all flew into the water. Almost every shovel full of material had lots of glass. We also pulled up a bunch of sharp tin cans. We keep extra garbage bags in our boats for situations such as this and came back with a good half bag of river trash. If you go, make sure your shoes are sturdy and you wear gloves. I would hate to think of anyone out for a fun day getting hurt. Thanks for any suggestions for tomorrow. Take care and see you on the hunt! jen
  5. Cetacean?

    I found this tooth in the Peace River about three weeks ago and have been tagging stabs at IDing it ever since. First thought was dolphin or whale. Then started looking at possible mammal canines. At this point I am uncertain which is the better line of pursuit to find an ID. If anyone has a suggestion on what it may be I would appreciate any input. Tooth is approx 7/8" L x 1/8" W.
  6. Bone Id help

    This is another bone I picked up last week in the Peace River. I have been trying to ID it but think maybe it will have to be put in the "chunkasaurus" pile. I was leaning toward a section of sloth or other mammal tibia. Any help would be appreciated. Bone is almost 6" long x 3" at the wide end tapering to 1.25" and 2.5" high. The curvature and tapering of the bone is what led me to think possibly a section of sloth tibia.
  7. Peace river toe bone and vert

    I have found some unique items from my last trip I would like to share. But first I would like to say that i'm sad to see how people are treating the rivers lately. I have noticed a large influx of hunters and thats fine but the people digging huge holes in the sides of the river walls and bringing teams out to excavate large portions of riverbed make me sad. Gainesville has already stopped shovel digging in the rivers. Peace river is next if people don't start respecting the rivers more. So anyway I found what I think is a toe bone on my last trip. It was in a very over hunted area but there were fossils left out everywhere. People are only hunting for megs and literally leaving the other goodies behind. This bone was actually just laying in the stream next to a large pile of rocks someone had dug. The second fossil I need help identifying is this vert that I found on top of another pile. However this pile was not man dug it was just a natural river deposit. Thank you in advance for your help.
  8. Peace River unknowns

  9. Item# 1 - This seems to be a horse toe bone, but not sure. It’s very cylindrical in shape. Item #2 - This looks very odd. Like a ray dermal spike, but not like any I’ve ever seen. item #3 - No clue. It has a pattern on it and looked very curious. ↓↓↓↓ Photos are further down ↓↓↓↓
  10. About a months worth of finds that I just finally need to ask for some help. Any ideas are helpful! Also if anyone would like me to take an individual video of all the angles of anything, I would be more than happy to. side note, #7 is a vertebra but I would like some help or tips on how to identify the difference between fish vertebrae and snake vertebrae. I love reptiles and I want to make a little collection of the snake vertebrae I find. I’m just not sure how to tell the difference right away
  11. Dolphin or Mammal?

    Hi everyone. Found this in the Peace River, Fl member of the Bone Vally formation. I think its Dolphin or could me mammal. Nice condition but the very tip is missing. Please have a look tell me your thoughts, this is a first find like this for me. Its small, 1.25" (31mm) from tip to where the root ends total length. The tooth itself is 1/2 inch (12mm) long and 3/8" (9mm) wide at the base of the enamel Thank You
  12. Been a while - please help ID

    First 'fossil" - not even sure if it is - is hollow. I think it is a claw. Second I think a tooth from noncarnivore something. Found in the Peace River in Florida TIA
  13. Horse Tooth?

    Hi everyone! Found in the Peace River,Florida Bone vally The tooth on the left is obvious horse tooth. It is 1" (25mm) wide and 1/2 inch (12mm) tall. The tooth on the right is the one I am wondering if a horse tooth can get this big or is it something else. it is 1.5 inchs (38mm) wide and 1 inch tall (25mm) across the top at the widest point. What do you think? Thanks!
  14. Hi all, Found this in the gravel during my sifting. Very curious about this as the circular hole in it is perfectly circular... Any ideas?
  15. Peace river Florida Shark teeth

    Hello! Ok I am posting pics from my day of collecting (the nicer ones) and The tooth I am curious about is the top left one. The rest I am just sharing for fun. I notice this one has a wide cutting blade below the root before it tapers to a point. I have collected a lot of teeth but this one looks unusual. Could just be how it is and just the usual bone vally bullshark/Dusky tooth? Tiny little Meg maybe? Trying to put a chart of my own togther (I know there are lots out there but I want to make my own) These are all around a inch long (25mm) Thoughts? Thank you!
  16. Fossil ID

    I am not sure what this is. It is hollow but heavy.
  17. Toe Bone?

    I think I found a toe bone same time I found the teeth from my last post and also where I found the sloth tibia in a previous post of mine. Peace river, Florida Bone Vally formation. I included a very short video so you can get a better look at it, my pictures do not really capture it well but I am getting better at taking pictures as I go. Take a look interested in what you think, thank you! I really appreciate you guys that help identify. My first year out collecting and I hope to be able to help others here some day. https://drive.google.com/file/d/17XeRmKHvC2duACTqJ1ma2DFikGPHF14R/view?usp=drivesdk
  18. 4 mammal teeth ID

    Hello again everyone! 4 teeth in 2 hours out of my spot in the Peace river, Florida. part of the Bone Vally formation. The first one (far left I am pretty sure its a nice horse tooth. The second (curved) could also be a horse toothbut has these 3 "ribs" (second pic) I guess you would call them that make me think it could be something else. The 3rd from the left I think another horse tooth just broken and the far right, I have no idea. Thought maybe a dolphin but I looked at pictures and the ones I seen dont have 2 roots like this one. Perhaps a mammal of some kind. Excited as always to hear what you think, thank you! The far left tooth is approximately 2" (50mm) this should be good reference for the others.
  19. Help identify peace river find

    Let’s try this again. Need some help identifying this tooth & jaw fragment I found in the peace river area. It has 1 perfect tooth with a second tooth on the opposite side split in half. Has me very stumped!
  20. Proboscidean Calcaneum?

    Was back at the Peace River, FL yesterday and happy to find recent rains had not impacted the water level or flow by much at all. Went back to the area where I previously found Proboscidean carpal, patella, jaw and tibia bones. After several hours of digging in a grid pattern I came up with what I believe is a well preserved calcaneum from a mammoth or mastodon. I would appreciate any input on this being a correct ID or not. Thanks.
  21. Proboscidian tibia?

    On my last visit to the Peace River I came up with four large long bones. They ranged in length form 11" to just over 14" and width from 3" to 5". If aligned end to end they are approximately 42" in length. Two of the long bones do fit together and equal 21.5" when joined. Several small chips/pieces were also recovered and so far I have been able to fit two of the small pieces into the long bones. They were found along with a mammoth or mastodon patella, carpal, partial mastodon tooth and end of a femur. I believe they are a mammoth or mastodon tibia and was hoping for confirmation or direction to search for an alternative. The first two photos are the ends of the two pieces that fit together.
  22. peace river shark teeth

    Hey y'all. I got some peace river gravel and found some small shark teeth in it. There's a few interesting ones that I can't decide what they are. They might not be identifiable, but I'm just curious if they are. Thanks!
  23. ID help on odd bone piece

    I posted a report in the trip section yesterday that included this bone I am not sure about on an ID. @Ash suggested the tip of a mammoth femur and in looking at a number of mammoth femur photos I think he is right. If anyone can corroborate or suggest an alternative your input would be appreciated.
  24. Chased by a Gator!

    Made another trip to the Peace River today. Got on the water by 8 am and headed for a spot where I have previously found mammoth and mastodon teeth. Started digging and by 9 am I had a partial mastodon tooth! Came up with a nice complete deer proximal phalanx, a handful of tiger shark teeth and some mammoth and mastodon tooth chips. My pouch was getting full so I went back to the kayak to safely put the mastodon tooth and other finds in bags and stow them away. As soon as I got back to where I was digging I heard the shovel "clink" on something. Reached down and pulled up a nice vert about 4" across. My probe then bumped something and I came up with what I believe is a mammoth or mastodon patella! Kept digging and started pulling up large bones ranging from 8 " to 12" long and up to just over 4" wide. Ended up with four of them. I was wearing some new gloves recommended by @Shellseeker and was very glad I had them on. When getting up these large pieces I was doing a lot of hand digging trying not to damage the bones while pulling them up. I found an additional large bone that was quite rounded and took a good deal of hand work to free from the sandy bottom. When I finally pulled it up my first thought was - looks like a baboon's behind (lol). I have been through my fossil guide and done some searching on line but haven't found anything that compares to it yet. I had decided ahead of time to head home by 2pm and about 11:30 I began moving all the finds back to the kayak as I knew it would take several trips. When this was done I headed back to the dig spot and the first sifter gave up a nice 1 1/4" meg. This was followed by what I believe is a mammoth germ tooth. More searching on line will be needed verify it. A few more shovels of gravel went into the sifter when I turned around to see an alligator (4" to 5") swiftly heading right toward me! I dropped the shovel and splashed out of the river so suddenly the gator stopped and turned sideways as it kept watching me. It floated there looking at me as I caught my breath and started wondering if I was going to get back in the water to retrieve my shovel and metal probe. We had a bit of a standoff for about 5 minutes. I took the time to load my pouches with the remaining finds I had placed on the bank. Seeing that the gator was just holding in place I mad a quick grab for my equipment and then decided to climb the bank and return to my kayak on land. I had never encountered an alligator in this spot before. Being it is gator mating season they do get more aggressive and territorial. Which means I won't be back to this site for the rest of the season. Thanks to the aggressive gator I called it a day at 12:30. Some photos of the best and largest finds - The stuff in the pail are small pieces that I believe came off the large long bones. Looks like I have another puzzle - like the tusk pieces found previously. Two close ups -
