  1. Peace River Teeth and a Few Verts

    I bought these among others a few years back. I went looking through them today and realized I wasn't sure on these pieces. Peace River Fm, Florida. 1
  2. Proboscidean Mandible?

    Got back out on the river this past Sunday. The water level had dropped a little and the flow had slowed a bit. This allowed me to get a little farther into the river at my favorite big bone hunting spot. The day was pretty much uneventful until I heard the telltale "clink" of the shovel on something that seemed bigger than a chunk of dugong. After a little probing and adjusting for the water flow I was able to pull up the targeted object. It turned out to be a reasonably large bone about 4"x6", it wasn't obvious what exactly it could be. I was hoping it was another piece of proboscidean bone as I have found pieces of mammoth and mastodon jaw bones, teeth, leg bones and tusk in this spot over the course of the past year. After getting it home and comparing it to prior finds I spent the last few evenings searching the Forum and the internet looking at proboscidean jaws and jaw bone pieces. As a result I think what I have is the end of the mandible or "chin" of either a mastodon or mammoth. Any opinions or comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for looking!
  3. ID Help

    Doing some more research on a find from this past May in the Peace River, FL. I have been trying to narrow this one down as it is a partial piece and I am not sure it can be identified with certainty. Going through some old posts on the Forum I came across a few possibles with the one I thought closest being a Peccary distal metacarpal (posted by @Harry Pristis a few years ago). If anyone can confirm or point me in another direction it would be appreciated. Thanks!
  4. Proboscidean Ulna

    Since the Peace River, FL has been running deep and fast for the last few weeks I decided to spend some time prepping and making a display for several proboscidean bones found in the spring. After posting the bones for id here when they were found and doing a bit of research on my own I believe what I have are pieces of an ulna from either a Mammoth or Mastodon. There is the possibility of Gomph, but Dr. Hulbert has informed me a couple of times that Gomph specimens have not yet been found in the Peace River. So first up is a photo of the four ulna sections along with the other specimens found that day. Several pieces in the pink plastic bucket were later able to be reattached to a couple of the ulna sections. I did come up with one additional ulna section on a return visit to the same spot later that week. Next is a photo of the four ulna pieces lined up for an overall idea of size. Two of these large pieces were able to be put back together after consolidation and formed the standing piece in the display. They are the two in the middle in the below photo. Finally, three photos of the completed display with rulers to get an idea of proportion. The metal ruler laying flat is 15" overall. The standing portion of the display consists of two pieces I was able to glue back together after consolidation it measures about 20". Two of the pieces laying flat had smaller pieces from the pink bucket in the first photo reattached after everything was consolidated with acetone and PVA beads. I used some scrap wood to make the tray table and post support. Some soft toy modeling clay was used to rest the base of the upright bone on. Clay was also used to form a ball over the top of the wooden support post to prevent the post from damaging the specimen. The tray table was filled with sand to lay the additional pieces on and give it a finishing touch. Looking forward to getting back to the Peace River in the coming week to see what new wonders have been uncovered by the summer rainy season!
  5. Florida Fossil Femur Head - Equus?

    Hello, This is the proximal head of a fossilized femur that I bought a few months back at a rock shop. The only collection info I know is that it’s from Florida, and by the looks of it it’s probably from the Peace River. After doing some amateur study I’m pretty sure this is the end of a horse femur, though of course I have been very wrong before and so would like some more thoughts/opinions. Unfortunately the place where the third trochanter would be is broken off which makes identification more difficult. Many thanks!
  6. I purchase some matrix and it came a little different than I am use to. It was labeld "Gardner Lacality Peace River FL" and came in unprepped. This was an experience trying to break up the matrix. Not knowing exactly what I was doing, I soaked it in warm water and broke it down the best I could into different size matrix. I need something a little stronger for the other half of the clumps to break down. Everything is a unidentifiable and not complete, but I wanted to post pictures because the colors are so amazing to me. Everything is 1-3MM. As I find more items I will add to this post..... Shark Teeth: Fish Teeth: Ray Teeth: Gastropod:
  7. Rostral Tooth?

    This looks like a Sawfish rostral tooth to me. Any opinions?
  8. Peace River

    2.5 cm object from the Peace River
  9. Pleistocene Leg Bone?

    Greetings Found this bone in the gravels of a Peace River tributary (in British Columbia) yesterday while hiking. It is clearly old and appears to be a Pleistocene leg bone off some type of smaller ungulate? animal. The bone has had quite a life and has been damaged by gravel reworking. I am a Geologist and identification (if possible) is beyond me so far. Please excuse the picture quality as I am in the field. Be kind haha. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Best Regards Rob
  10. I dont know what this is. A shiny phosphate pebble or a piece of a fairly large size tooth Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated. As stated in the tags, found in the Peace River, Florida.
  11. Mammal tooth for ID

    Is this molar found in Peace River gravel matrix from a raccoon? After looking at a lot of pictures, it looks like a lower tooth, an m-2. Is this correct? @Harry Pristis Thanks for looking.
  12. I found this Ice Age fossil in Peace River, Florida.... 1+ inch length of the base of deer antler. Photos show a side view and entire bottom 'button' base, where it was attached to skull. So I think this is a shed antler.
  13. Peace River - Fish Material

    Hi everyone, I have some material from Peace River, Florida, that I think is mostly from fish. I'm a lot better with sharks, while I have some idea what these things are, confirmation would be great. This vert is about 1" - is it too small to be a shark? Would this be a ray tail barb? These look like barracuda teeth to me, though the 2nd and 3rd may simply be broken shark teeth Lastly, I'm not sure if this is even a fossil - 1 1/2":
  14. Florida - Peace River

    Hi everyone, I have some stuff that was found in the Peace River, Florida. I think I have an idea what these are, but confirmation would be great! First off, a horse tooth? Could anything more specific be identified? It's 2" Then there's this, and I think it's alligator scute. 1 inch Lastly, alligator tooth partial? 1 inch long
  15. Palm Seed?

    I've had this little round fossil for 2 years now and hadn't posted it on the forum. However when I saw a post where someone asked about a possible fossil seed they found in some Aguja matrix, I immediately recognized a similar pattern and shape that was displayed on one of the references shared by another member (a graphic displaying various fossilized palm seeds). I want to know what you all think. It's about 6 mm in diameter.
  16. Tooth ID

  17. Bone ID

  18. Phalanx?

  19. Sponge?

    Anybody? Ideas?
  20. Formations in Peace River

    Hey everyone, I was recently looking through some of my older fossils and found the shark teeth I had found in the Peace River around 2 years ago on a trip kindly organized by @Sacha. I noticed I hadn't included a Formation tag on my labels, so I went to do some research. I googled 'Peace River formation' and found a formation carrying the name of the river; I also remembered that some of my shark teeth had Bone Valley-like coloration, and if I remember correctly the Bone Valley and the Peace River essentially represent the same fauna. According to Wikipedia, the Peace River Formation covers this age range: But Wikipedia also says that it's "a Late Oligocene to Early Miocene geologic formation in the west-central Florida peninsula." If you then take a look at the entry for the Bone Valley Member/Formation, this is what you get: They also say that "The Bone Valley Formation includes a diverse assemblage of vertebrate fossils. These include remains of sea turtles, equines, felines, peccaries, and others." However I'm looking for the info for my shark teeth, not land animals. Overall, I'm a bit confused as to what information I need to take into account. Wikipedia is generally good in my opinion for scientific stuff, but in this case it didn't help me much. So essentially, my question is this: from what formation do my Peace River shark teeth come from and exactly how old are they? And what exactly is the stratigraphy of the Peace River like? I can post a picture of the shark teeth in question if necessary (or if you just wanna look at them ). Hopefully someone has a clear answer to this Best regards, Max
  21. 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)
  22. 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!
  23. 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.
