  1. I found this bone on a Tampa Bay Beach, Florida and the next week I found an identical one but left it. When I first scooped it out of the water I thought it was a molar from a manatee. After looking at it I saw it didn't have a root and was it a joint bone? From the weight and color I think it's modern but curious to find out what I found and what animal. (ruler is in inches) Any help or ideas welcome and appreciated.
  2. Florida Cave Bear or Bison Toe Bone?

    Good evening fossil folks, I found a small bone on a Tampa Bay beach on the west coast of Florida. After doing some research I saw similarities to a cave bear toe bone and/or bison. It's approximately 1" x 3/4" and very worn with a baseline crack. I have 7 photos of different angles. Can you ID? Thanks all!
  3. Hi, This was an unusual beach find in Tampa Bay, Florida. I thought it was a vertebrae of some kind so I tossed it in my bucket. When I was going through my Florida Fossil book looking at horse teeth one day, I saw a horse ankle bone that resembled my find. It's very hard, light probably because it is hollow; but doesn't appear to be mineralized. I'm not sure it is a fossil, but I also don't know how it could be modern. What is it?
  4. Happy New Year everyone! I found this awesome little star-like fossil on a Tampa Bay beach in Florida. It's about an inch wide and has crystals in the center. It has a volcano look with grooves and appears to be a mold of something, but what? Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi all, This is an unusual looking find. Measures about 1 3/4 x 1 1/2 x 1 inch and found on the beach in Tampa Bay, Florida. It is hard as rock or shell, has striations running down and a twig sticking out of the middle. The bottom has tube worms, shell material and a barnacle. My educated guess is a fossilized plant root, like a mangrove (pneumatophores). Or a twig through a seashell like how the native Indians made tools that way by putting a hole in the shell and putting it through a branch and letting it grow in it tight. I have photographed several angles. What do you think it is?
  6. Sponge or Coral Florida Beach Find?

    Hi, I found this on the beach CW Florida. It is brittle, thin and very light but does not float. It's full of aeration holes so I'm guessing it's a type of sponge? 2 photos of front and back. Any help appreciated.
  7. Hi, This is an interesting beach find. It's about 1 1/2" x 1 1/2", Found on Honeymoon Beach, Florida USA. It appears to me a baby Clam Bivalve embedded in a Snail Gastropod Limestone Cast. The clam is about a half of inch at it's widest point and is crystallized. I'm not sure if it is a fossilized shell I'm looking at or a cast of the shell? I've found many snail casts, but not one with another shell in it. Anybody ever see one like this? Thanks for looking!
  8. Anyone know what this jaw is from? Apparently collected back in the 90's in Tampa Bay Florida, I'm not sure on the geography of the area, but it also says allegedly it's from the pleistocene. The description of it is specific enough to say it was collected in a river deposit, but i'm not sure which. I agree that it's a carnivorous mammal, but beyond that I have no idea, any clue what it is?
  9. Fossilized Whale Bone?

    HI. I'm a rock hunter and found some fossils along the way but it's not my expertise. This may be a rock but I'll let the Forum decide. This piece is about 1 1/4" long by 3/4" wide and is blackish with a rust color interior on the broken end. I found it on the Dunedin Causeway, Florida and it resembles whale bone that I've found in the Venice Beach area, but it doesn't have the ocean tumbled shape. What do you think??? Thanks again, BronzViking
  10. Tooth fossil

    Please help me identify this fossil. We found it off an island in Tampa Bay. It is obviously some sort of tooth. My family and I are just beginning to enjoy fossil hunting so our knowledge is very limited. We are thinking it could be either a horse or camel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  11. Tampa Bay Fossil Fest

    Is anyone planning on going to Fossil Fest in Tampa this weekend? I'll be volunteering there both days and it would be fun to meet any fellow Fossil Forum members that also go. On Saturday I'll be working at the silent auction from 2-5 and will be wearing a name tag, not sure where I'll be on Sunday. This will be the first time I've gone to Fossil Fest but I've been told it's a fun event. I've attached a link to the event flyer for anyone who would be in the area and is interested in going. http://www.tampabayfossilclub.com/documents/FossilFest.pdf Kara
  12. Hunting for coral

    Saturday was the meeting for the Tampa Bay Fossil club and I decided to head down early to get in a little beach combing since it's an hour and a half drive from my house. The beach I usually go to to find coral had been under construction for over a year while they were working on shoring up sections of the beach. That had involved them hauling in loads of limestone from who knows where to deal with erosion. Among all of that limestone was chunks of fossil coral which is what I was hoping to find. The problem is that I hadn't been to this spot since late spring and had heard that pickings were pretty slim now. Once I got there I quickly realized that they had actually extended the beach further out into the Gulf and all of the coral laden rock was buried underneath all the new sand. There was hardly any rock in site. Since I was already there I decided to take a walk down the deach with a bucket anyway to see what I could find. If nothing else I was hoping to find some nice shells to make the trip worth while. Sadly, most of the shells I found were clams and scallops of which I have plenty already. In the past I'd always found the best shells among the rocks lining the beach. As I made my way further down the beach I noticed piles of shells that had been washed up into the scrub lining the back of the beach. As I dug through the piles looking for interesting shells I started finding small chunks of rock, a few of whick had some shell impressions and hints of coral. Nothing worth hauling back to the car though. The further down the beach the more rocks I found and then I found a spot where it was possible to walk back into the scrub and that's where I started finding much more rock. Still not much in the way of coral though. I was just about to give up when I found the first decent piece of coral of the day. It looked to be part of a coral head and even though it was badly worn it was still nice enough to go into the bucket with my shells. Shortly after that I found a rock that was half limestone and half chert that was loading with imprints of coral branches which I walso kept. I was running out of time at the beach as I had another stop I needed to make before the meeting but decided to check a few more shell piles before making the trek back to the car. That's when I made my best find of the day! Laying out in the open just waiting to be picked up was a rock that was part limestone and part chert that was full of coral branches, many of which were at least partially agatized. Finding that made the trip for me! I looked around for about a half hour more but didn't find anything else worthwhile before making the hike back to the car.
