  1. I found this 1/2" by 1/2" jaw section while screen sifting in the Santa Fe this week. The tiny teeth along the jaw are fish or insectivore like (pin like with no grinding surface), but the hooked canine looks totally out of place. Can anyone hazard a guess as to animal type? It is most likely pleistocene to modern.
  2. Santa Fe tooth

    Hey guys, Around 2.5 years ago I found this tooth in the Santa Fe River in Florida, which is Pleistocene. I previously IDed it as a bison premolar (Bison antiquus), but looking back I am now less convinced by that ID. The chewing surface seems off, and seen from the top it seems a little too 'rectangular'. Due to its relatively small size, if it is indeed bison, could it possibly be a juvenile (hence explaining why it looks a bit different from normal bison teeth)? What do you guys think? I can provide more angles if necessary. Thanks in advance, Max
  3. Santa Fe carnivore canine

    Hey guys, Here's a partial canine that I got from Cris & Kyle around 2 and a half years ago. It's from the Santa Fe River in Florida, so Pleistocene in age. I've compared it to several canines online, and my best guess right now is spectacled bear (Tremarctos floridanus), but I feel like it could also be a lower canine from a dire wolf (Canis dirus). It doesn't seem cat-like to me. What do you think? I can provide more angles if necessary. Thanks in advance, Max
  4. My friend and I did about 4 tanks each over the weekend in the Santa Fe above the 41 bridge and the Suwannee downstream of Mayo. I did miss one box of fossils for the pic, but judging by the slim pickings and seeing one guy on a hooka rig on the same spot for 6 hours, I'd say these areas have had too much hunting pressure. The more interesting pieces... A large hunk of mega fauna (giant sloth?) A piece of chert with econoids Half a Herty cup Doll head A large fish vert (sturgeon?) And for the detailed picture of the fossil that somewhat resembles a tooth, I have no idea at all! The surface texture doesn't match what I've seen on mammal teeth before.
  5. Are there any individuals offering guided trips for fossils on the Santa Fe river in Florida? G
  6. I've received papers recommended by forum members and I'm looking to identify or verify the ID's for a number of pieces still confusing me. In the Santa Fe river, while sifting limestone rubble, we find numerous examples of what previous posts on TFF identify as Rhyncholampas goldii (or the molds thereof) an Oligocene sea biscuit from the Suwannee Limestone. On much less frequent occasions we come across the molds of the sea urchin in the photo below. I'm having difficulty determining whether these are Gagaria mossomi or Phymotaxis mansfieldi. I'm leaning toward P mansfieldi, because the the regularity of the test. Can anyone help?
  7. Two loose stones found near the Santa Fe Opera. Smaller pentagonal fossil about 3 to 4 mm. Larger more linear fossil 6 mm wide and 7 cm long.Now I’m looking forward to finding more. Any help on identification appreciated.
  8. Horse tooth? From Santa Fe

    Hi all, I found this tooth during my trip with Fossil Voyages. It’s from the Santa Fe River, Florida, US. From the Pleistocene. Anyone know what it is? I’m thinking three-toed horse, or small horse, but I’m not sure... Oh, the tooth might be incomplete, I’m not sure either about that. Thanks in advance for your help, Max
  9. Foram from Santa Fe?

    Hi all, So here is a foram that I found in the Santa Fe River in northern Florida. I got told that it is either Eocene or Pleistocene. Well I know absolutely NOTHING about forams (the fact that they are single-called still confuses me! ), so I ask your help: what species is this one, how old is it, and how exactly would it have lived/looked like when it was alive? Thanks in advance, Max
  10. Another trip to the generally unproductive Santa Fe river for me today, with a couple little things after 5 hours of shoveling limestone rubble. The first is 1/2 of a baby mammoth tooth. The stuff in the screen gives you an idea of what the "gravel" looks like in this little section of the river I hang out on. I need help with this 2nd little guy. Comparing it to images in Dr. Hulbert's book, the pre-molars, which are essentially oval in cross section, match with pocket gophers and rabbits. If there are any rodent enthusiasts out there, I would appreciate your suggestions. I'm guessing rabbit due to the size and the fact that several small bones found on previous trips were identified by Dr. Hulbert as rabbit. Hope this picture is good enough to see the detail. It does seem to be fully mineralized. Thanks for the time.
  11. On Monday the 18th I took another rather unproductive trip to the Santa Fe. I came away with a couple giant Armadillo osteoderms, a couple burrfish mouth plates and the item below. You can see it is concave on one face and convex on the other. The convex surface has what may be a bone attachment or it may be a piece of matrix still attached. I'm leaning toward some kind of fish mouth plate, but an unknown osteoderm is a possibility as well. I don't think the bumps on the surface are well enough defined to be teeth. You can see it's about an inch with and only about 3/16' thick. Pleistocene. Thanks allot. I appreciate it.
  12. It's been almost a year and a half since I've been to the Santa Fe. The last time I was cited by fish and game and warned off the river, informed that you couldn't use a shovel to dig for fossils in the river bottom. After discussions with U of FL paleontologists and having the documenting e-mails printed and in my pack, I was ready to try it again. This is the first time water levels have been low enough to give it another shot. It wasn't a day for great finds, but it was a decent day out none the less. The following 3 pictures are of something I can't identify. I thought it was a damaged turtle nuchal scute, but the back side isn't correct. One surface looks very alligatory, and I'm guessing that's what its from. It is bi-laterally symmetric, so I'm also guessing centerline skull element or pelvis. Am I close??
