  1. FL River Hunting Feb 22 2018

    Got in a few hours of digging today and popped a few keepers out. One day I'm going to find a nice complete Meg that size.
  2. Florida River Hunting Feb 2018

    Had a good bit of success visiting a river I've been to in the past. I had "cleaned" this area out last year but I tried an experiment & piled all the rock/limestone that I worked through last year up in the center of the river expecting that it would trap sediment & moving fossils upstream of the rocks during the rainy season. Like most of my plans it didn't work as I expected, it seems that the sediment didn't deposit behind the rocks but the flow tumbled the rocks and sediment deposited downstream of the rocks. I spent about 4 hours digging out about 120 square feet of deposits 6-10" deep and screening. Pretty much about the easiest hunting scenario you could hope for in a river. I picked up everything that I recognized as a shark tooth (one bison tooth 2 bits of stingray & about 2 back packs worth of dugong bone bits). I wanted to point out a few things, 1) almost all teeth are river black, there are less than 5 teeth that had other coloration (bone valley like), 2) a high percentage are broken but not necessarily "river worn". So that evening I went to a social party & took the nice Meg to show some friends, of course one of the guest is totally enamored and tells me I've got to take them along next time so they can get some like that too! If only it was that easy....everyone would be doing it!
  3. Unknown object ~ any ideas?

    Hello everyone! I hope the new year is treating everyone well. Here outside of Chicago, we are about to get hit with a huge snow storm. While this time of year is usually slow for getting outside and doing some searching for interesting finds, a warm day last week allowed for a few new items to be found. In the DuPage river just west of Chicago in Illinois I have been finding a great group of teeth some fossils and a few possible Native American cutting stones. The item I found last week though is quite strange. I have no idea what this could be after searching for over an hour online for similar type stones/fossils. The ridges are very odd to me as they are pretty much evenly spaced. Here are the photos. As always I greatly appreciate any feedback you all have and look forward to discusses this and maybe identifying it. Thank you!
  4. Is this a fossil ?

    Is this a fossil rock ?
  5. So after hurricane Maria at Puerto Rico, I got curious about the small river down the mountain of my backyard so I went down to explore it. To my surprise some boulders tumbled down due to a soil erosion so I started exploring the scene. I found a few rocks that are actually some very peculiar fossils. The thing is that I don't know anything about fossils in PR so I'm going nuts trying to figure it out! Is it some kind of fish? But it's too big to be a fish and the bone-like structure is quite solid. Professionals and expert paleontologists, please help!
  6. Hi All, While diving South Carolina rivers, I've collected a group of bones which seem to have the same general characteristics: Roughly hourglass shaped, tapering lengthwise (like a doorstop), most have perceptible grooves if viewed from the correct angle. Are these just random bone frags that coincidentally eroded to roughly the same shape? Or can they be identified to a specific body part such as an ankle or foot ?
  7. Hello all. Its been a long time since I have had the chance to do fossil hunting after the hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. Floods, contaminated waters, power outtages have made it very difficult. Anyway, I took a vacation and found this for a resonable price at an antique store. This would be my first insect fossil as well as my first fossil from the green river formation. It is labeled as: Fossil Fly Eocene Epoch 38-55 millions years old green river formation wyoming i am wondering if the identification is correct and if it is possible to know more information on the piece. Sorry I do not have a ruler for scale. Thank you!
  8. Meglodon tooth origin?

    Hello all! Hope everyone's years are off to a happy and huntfull start! Well I started the year off spending some Christmas cash on a meglodon tooth. (Having only found fragments myself) any way I was wondering if there is a tie between locations and colors of teeth. I found this beauty at an pass-proof price. It is a beautiful orange/red. At 5 inches almost exactly. The previous owner says it came from the st. Mary's river area of Georgia. (Pretty close to where I was when I got it). I am just curious if this is a common color for other areas or even in the st Mary's area? Thank you all for any input.
  9. Conc. On the York river

    I went up to Virginia for Christmas and went hunting down by the York river and found these. I am not sure if it's something or nothing. I don't find these in Florida. Thanks
  10. I was down on the NSR this weekend and found this nice little 3 inch fossil. If any of you know the scientific name, please share! I thought it was really pretty. The NSR, I have to say, seems to be fairly picked over near the giant stairway. It was ridiculously hot down there this weekend and humid, so I was hesitant to venture off too far, but I'm assuming that the finds will be more plentiful if I start hiking away from the stairs when the weather cools down.
  11. Tooth #6 ~ bovine?

    Hello everyone! The warm weather continues in the Midwest so I am still able to get out and do some river hunting into December with shorts and a long sleeve shirt. Pretty amazing. This is from DuPage River, western suburbs of Chicago. Northern Illinois. The same location where I have found the following for reference: I imagine these to be bovine. The one other tooth found so far has been wild boar/pig which was cool. I look forward to people's feedback. Here is today's find:
  12. Five new finds that need some experts!

    Hello! I posted a little while ago when I found a tooth out river hunting in Northern illinois. Well I have returned to that spot several times since and have found teeth almost every time. They were all found within about 25 feet of each other. It has been quite fun to go back and see what I will find. My original post is here: Here are pictures of the new ones. #2 appears to be maybe cow/bison. #3 appears to be horse. #4 maybe cow/bison again. #5 I have no idea despite looking at animal teeth pictures for an hour this morning. #5 May just be a stone but it sure looks and feels like a canine tooth. Let me know what you think:
  13. Possible Crinoid?

    Hello! This is from DuPage River, western suburbs of Chicago. Northern Illinois. I found this interesting stone and originally thought of it as a Native American grinding stone. When I looked closer at it through my macro lens I noticed this odd screw type shape. Looking through various sites it appears to be a crinoid. Any thoughts? Thank you for your time!
  14. What is this thing?

    Hello all! I am so happy to find this amazing forum. I love looking through all the amazing things people are finding! It's a great site. I have returned to the same place in this river I have found a bunch of interesting objects and animal teeth. Today, even though it was very cold, I did some river hunting when the sun was out and made it fairly decent. I came across this odd stone or object. I have been going to this same stretch of river ofr about 6 months now, have purchased a few geology books and searched online but haven't come across something like this yet. I just have no idea what this is. Any ideas? Thank you for your time, I greatly appreciate your feedback!
  15. Whale tooth?

    Found today, near the peace river in Arcadia, my guess is whale tooth? *Sigh* one day, I may find a whole one?
  16. Strange vert

    Pure speculation, gator? Found near the peace river in Arcadia. Any help, is appreciated.
  17. Large bone

    I know this is some kind of joint, but what joint or animal? Only thing I can think, large mammal, I have about 6 guesses.
  18. Some peace river stuff

    Thanks to Digit! I have a real camera! Thanks digit! Expect many pics!
  19. Mystery vert

    My guess is Dugong or whale (leaning on dugong) Very dense and heavy, thanks TFF!
  20. Bovine teeth?

    Found all 3 of these under the peace river bridge, after Irma. All within a ft of each other, no other associated bones. Don't seem quite fossilized, cow? Thanks!
  21. Rhino tooth?

    My best guess is Rhino tooth? Also, it has few worrying cracks, is super glue a good idea? Thanks.
  22. Possible osteoderm?

    First off, apologies for low quality pics, only a lap top camera here. I was hoping some one can ID this oddball. My guess is some kind of osteoderm from a glyptodont or tortoise? I will try to update this thread with better pics. (have to get my friends smart phone and have them e mailed to my computer. Sorry double post, tried to delete it but cant seem to. Can a moderator please delete one post?
  23. a very big skull or not

    In a river 25km from beach.. Well it looks like a huge skull to me, its 60cm long. And I am probably wrong. How ever this river feels fossilferous. the area is registered as pachna formation (miocene 5-23million years) I will attach also a photo of what looks like a piece of wood or bone. Its 1m long and it is found nearby the skull-like piece. They are too heavy to move but if u find any of those interesting I can go there and make more photos thanks
  24. Fossil / Artifact / ? Help with ID

    Hi guys! I recently found this bone in an Island in the Savannah River, really close to Savannah. There where a lot of pottery shards near by with punctuations and patterns so I'm assuming it's some kind of artifact. It measures 7.10" inches the holes are .0011 inches Note the "cut-like" incisions on the broken part and also the two holes (they connect to the inner part of the bone, so if you pour water on one end it will come out of the holes) at first I though they where foramen (where arteries go into the bones) but they look like drilled and most foramen go diagonally into the bone. See for your self! Any comments are welcome! Thanks!
  25. New here to the forum and to fossil hunting. Found a few teeth over the past few weeks was hoping to get some help with identification and where to find more in the low country. Living in mount pleasant with access to a 23 foot bay boat as well as a few paddle boards. Would love to meet some great people with the same interests as myself and my wife. We would love to host some new friends on our boat for some hunting. If you are in the area and wouldn't mind the company of some newbs that are eager to learn and hunt send me a PM. We are looking forward to becoming knowledgeable on the area and meeting others that share our interests. I have attached a picture of a few of the things we found any help on ID would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
