  1. From Myrtle, to Charleston and then from Amelia around to Venice. It was truly a blessed summer strolling the beaches with family, and sometimes by myself. Of the hundreds found, these are my favorites.
  2. Fossil Jaw FL ?

    Found this suspect item inland Venice, FL. Mostly Pleistocene material within 100 yards: sloth, megs, dugong...Lots of clay and limestone in this site. Some material not totally mineralized. When cleaning item, fiberous material revealed. Unsure if it is a fossil or not. Jaw shaped?
  3. I found this in Venice florida. I was wondering if anyone knew the species. I believe it's a scallop. Thank you.
  4. Shark teeth Hunting in Venice, Florida

    Two Venice businesses turn searching for fossils and sharks' teeth into lasting memories Earle Kimel, Sarasota Herald-Tribune, Oct 12, 2020 Yours, Paul H.
  5. ID Smooth Florida Fossil

    I am sharing this very unusual fossil from Inland Venice, FL. I recovered this item from 3 feet below surface in gray clay. It is 25 mm high, 16 mm wide, and 5 mm thick. Fossil is perfectly smooth. This type of fossil is an outlier. I would believe it if it was in a rock tumbler for a long time. I'm very sure that didn't happen. Curious to see if anyone has recovered this type of item before.
  6. Unknown Florida Tooth

    Found this specimen yesterday in inland Venice, Florida. This is the first time I have ever seen this fossil tooth. Pleistocene material (clay and shells are abundant 3 feet below surface. Other finds in this 'field' have been meg teeth, sloth vert, dugong ribs, whale vert. I saw a possible example from Morocco online. Tooth is glossy and has circular bands. Fossil is 20 mm high and 15 mm in diameter. Thank you in advance for your assistance. I will post another oddity found today. Regards, Michael DEPRESSION IN TOP OF TOOTH Raised ridge from top to bottom. It is visible on left & right BOTTOM VIEW: 15mm diameter, slightly depressed in center.
  7. Unknown Florida leg bone

    Recovered a reddish brown, dense, solid fossil yesterday. Flat spot 40mm x 40mm. Widest part is 75mm x 45mm, x 55mm high. Found in Pleistocene material. I'm guessing it is part of a vertebrae/spinal column. Looked for comparative pics in galleries... was unsuccessful. Thank you in advance for ID assistance. Regards, Michael 40mm x 40mm squared area
  9. Ear Bone Possibility?

    Never seen fossil in my dig sites. Inland Venice, FL. Reddish tint. Longest length is 48mm. Width 33mm. Material from this site has Equus and Sloth fossils. I did find a "whale tooth" within 50 feet of this fossil. I have recovered other whale ear bones that did not look like this one. Thank you in advance for your ID assistance. Regards, Michael
  10. Florida Fossil Tooth ID

    Found a new type of fossil from my dig site. East Venice, FL. Pleistocene material in area. Fossil is 26 mm long and 13 mm in diameter. Appears to have enamel on outside. Fossil ID appreciated. Regards, Michael
  11. Shark Teeth Beaches in Venice, FL

    Hi everyone, I'm planning a trip to South Carolina and Florida in late 2020. It's a family trip that I'm incorporating some fossil hunting into. And because it's a family trip, it's going to be beaches as opposed to rivers and creeks - dad's back can't handle the terrain (no Peace River this trip). As far as fossil hunting goes, my goal is shark teeth and quality ones over a large quantity. I'd like large ones, but I'm sure we all would. I've done my research on both states and have a pretty good idea of which beaches I can hunt in South Carolina. I'm having more issues figuring Florida out. It seems to me that my best bet is Venice, and based on the guides I've read for sieve-and-shovel-type hunts that gives me three choices: the Fishing Pier complex; Caspersen Beach; and Manasota Key. I'll have 3 days in that area. I can do each of those, but if one of these is known as better than the others for shark teeth, I'd rather focus my efforts on that. I'm wondering if anyone has accounts of their experiences at any of these to give me a better idea of how I want to distribute my time. While I continue to scour the forums for member experiences at these beaches, any advice would be appreciated. Even beaches outside of the Venice area; the trip is flexible and I can change it up.
  12. Hello, I'm a newbie. I'm looking for advice on what product to place on the fossils in the boulder below. I want to stabilize them in the matrix before I do any more removal. The photo with the (5) had a great rib in it but crumbled upon getting the rock into my truck. Fossils are exposed on many sides. As I began removing matrix with my Dremel 290, more fossils were uncovered. I read many articles and posts about solution adhesives. I want to keep it simple. I found premade Paraloid B-72 Glue, and the more complicated acetone and b-72, b-76 pellets. I may try and use a filler on my rib (1) that has a crack. This has been a great COVID hobby for me. My science students will get fossil remnants from me as student of the week rewards. Suggestions welcomed.
  13. Greetings, I am a newbie with a good fossil hunting ground. I have permission to hunt on this property. My previous post regarding a Caudal Vert. didn't get much attention. I was trying to find the age because most other material is Pleistocene. I went looking for more verts in the piles. On the other side of building lot I found a large boulder that was solidified mostly of chalky limestone. Visible on 4 sides are what I suspect are duogong ribs. There are many micro fossils visible. I have been cleaning the sandy dirt away from where the fossils are. They appear to be on the brittle side. The boulder is 24" x 12" and about 150 pounds. A dental probe has allowed me to scrape away areas near the fossils but don't want to push it. I'm looking for suggestions on what you experts do with a specimen this size. Thanks to all of you for your ideas. I am a science teacher in Sarasota County. I know some of you are in my area. I would like to make contact with any local experts. Regards, Michael
  14. Cetacean Caudal Vertebrae Age?

    I extracted this vertebrae from a 10 inch long matrix that looked like concrete. East Venice, FL, Sarasota County Pleistocene material. Lot of clay found in material adjacent to this dirt pile. I think the vert looks like image on p.341 in Fossil Vertebrates of Florida. The vertebrae is 4 inches in diameter and 4 inches high. This would be the first whale vert I found here. Mostly finding meg teeth, sloth, equus, dugong. I think it may be cetacean caudal vertebrae. I am attaching pic that looks right that I found on the net. My question is What would the estimate be of age? Would it be older than Pleistocene? I did find a Bonus 5mm micro fossil tooth in the matrix. If anyone can ID the tooth, that would be super.
  15. ID Florida Vertebrate Fossil

    Hello, East Venice, FL vertebrate mystery fossil. Unique indentation in V shape. Found in Pleistocene material. Cracked by tractor. Recent material identified in same location as: Sloth, Equus, Meg teeth. I realize it is not the best specimen but the V shape on one side is unique. Thanks in advance for your suggestions/identification. I didn't see an example in the gallery or textbook. Height is 5cm
  16. ID Fossil Turtle Shell ?

    Found this cool fossil today. Measures 6 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 2 inches high. Venice, FL construction site. Located 5 feet away from a nice Meg tooth. Pleistocene material recovered within 50 yards. My first thought was small tortoise shell fully intact. Located close by was another larger size tortoise shell that was not fully fossilized. Hoping someone can confirm this is a fossilized turtle shell. Regards, Michael
  17. ID 45mm thick fossil

    I found a unique reddish colored 45mm thick fossil while on my walk yesterday. It is pentagon shaped. Longest distance is from side 6-4 and is 9cm. The dorsal side is darker than the ventral. Four of the sides are smooth. Side 6 has a smooth surface and is size of a quarter. Found in area of Pleistocene material. My guess was neural (4) from a tortoise. Based on drawing in Hulbert's book The Fossils Vertebrates of Florida (p. 122). The thickness of this fossil is what is raising the question for me? ID help is greatly appreciated. SIDE 1 SIDE 2 SIDE 3 SIDE 4 SIDE 5 SIDE 6 SIDE 7
  18. ID Multi-color fossil

    Unique two-color fossil throughout. Found in Venice, FL. The fossil is 6cm x 6cm x 2.5cm. Other fossil material in the area ranges from Meg teeth, whale vertebrae, Equus. My thoughts were of an osteoderm. Their is a raised portion at the break on the dorsal side. ID appreciated.
  19. Unknown joint end of bone Fossil ID

    Hello, I found this joint end of a bone in a spoil pile. It has nice brown color and it is NOT dense. Underside shows fibrous area. I have found Equus and whale bone, and deer antler in this area as well as Meg teeth. I read Hulbert's book and my speculation was a ankle bone of some type or phalange. I can see where it might be from a piece of humerus. fossil is 3 cm high and 4 cm wide. Assistance appreciated. - Michael
  20. Whale Vertebra ?

    I believe it is possibly a whale vertebra. It is light for it's size. Found inland Venice, FL in a dirt pile. Image 7414 shows flat surface of fossil. The remaining images are lateral views.
  21. I have an unknown, dense, arced fossil that is solid. Image 1 shows the smooth, angled surface. I cannot find a reference for this item. Found in spoil pile today in inland Venice. Surrounding material from Pleistocene. Thank you in advance. This should be challenging... Regards, Michael

  23. Venice Florida Tortoise Advice

    Hello, I live in between Venice and North Port, FL, close to the Myakka. I have been finding tortoise fossils/clasts in my neighborhood. Most are in moist clay within a foot from surface.
