  1. Peace River ID help

    I have two items that I picked up yesterday on the Peace River that I am hoping for some help with on an ID. I am pretty sure the first is a whale tooth from prior posts I have seen here on the forum. I am hoping to confirm this is a whale tooth and if possible the type of whale. Here is the tooth - The second specimen is a bit odd looking. The image that flashed in my mind was that it reminded me of a boxing glove as I looked at it from above. It appears that it may only be half of the actual item. Some kind of tilly bone is the only thing I could think of. Any input would be appreciated, Thanks.
  2. Got out to the Peace River yesterday and a beautiful day it was! The river continues to be very low and slow moving. As I was heading east on the 1 hour drive I was listening to news reports of several Florida Mayors wanting the counties or state to issue stay at home orders. This would certainly put a damper on visits to the river, I travel through 3 counties just to get there. So I hit the river thinking this could be my last outing for a while. With very few people on the river on any week day there really isn't a reason to stop folks from getting out and enjoying a day of exercise where they won't be in close contact with anyone else. As I was approaching within a few hundred yards of my most recent hunting spot I saw a tent on the river bank and a canoe alongside. As I got closer I saw a man and what I took to be his son. We exchanged greetings and the adult said he had spent the night on the river to get his son out of the house. I continued on and shortly had to get out of the kayak due to the water level being too low to paddle. I set up south of where I saw the campers and got busy digging. Various shark teeth started turning up pretty quickly. I was also rewarded with two small sections of dolphin jaw bones, mammoth and mastodon fragments and more. Every time nice finds seemed to be dying out I would come up with another nice shark tooth or a piece of mastodon tooth that convinced me the big prize was only a shovel away. Unfortunately, these turned out to be a bit of a tease. I did have a good day with the number and variety of shark teeth, a piece of deer antler, puffer fish mouth plate, whale tooth, dolphin periotic, a nice turtle scute, some sting ray dermal scutes and a small gator tooth. About 10 am I looked up and saw my friendly 4 foot gator lazily swimming by about 20 feet away. He slid under a downed tree and left his tail sticking out. He was there for about an hour and then disappeared. We seem to have an understanding, I ignore him and he ignores me. This was backed up by his return in the early afternoon to crawl up on his favorite sandy spot and watch me for the rest of the day. He was still laying in the sun when I headed north back to the launch site. On the way back a Bard owl graced me with his presence by suddenly flying in and landing on a tree limb directly over me in the river. He patiently waited while I circled under him taking pictures. A short time later I saw a 10' to 12' alligator slide into the river a little ahead of me. When I see that it does cause me to have second thoughts about my inflatable kayak! Shot of the owl and picture of the best finds of the day are below. I will be posting the whale tooth and one other questionable find in the ID section for help with an ID. Right now the plan is to return to the river Friday. Hope the politicians don't shoot that idea down with a stay at home order.
  3. Bone? Tooth? Something else?

    Hi everyone, yesterday I was hunting for sharks teeth on the beaches of Wilmington, North Carolina, when I found this. It's very heavy and definitely fossilized, but it doesn't really look like most of the whale bone I'm used to seeing. The piece slightly curves and has ridges down the length of it. It's about 2 inches long, 1 inch wide, and a half inch thick. Any kind of information would be greatly appreciated!
  4. I've found a couple of listings of archaeocete teeth frags from Harleyville, South Carolina on a fossil seller. I know that Basilosaurus cetoides, Zygorhiza kochii, and Dorudon serratus all exist in this area, with a couple of examples of all three having been found there (now in Charleston Museum collection). However, is there a way to differentiate between them when it comes to teeth, specifically incisors? Some images of the listings are below. First tooth measures 2.6 inches. Second tooth measures 2.2 inches, but is a frag so I imagine that it may be much bigger if restored. Third tooth measures 3.75 inches.
  5. Need a little more help

    We found this today and have been trying to figure out what it could be. I'm guessing it may be some kind of tooth or tusk I'm sure someone will be able to ID it. It was found snorkeling at the beach near Venice Florida.
  6. So my archaeocete tooth arrived early. Now that I actually got my hands on it, I want to see exactly what species it is. The seller simply said that it was a basilosaurus tooth, which was said to be found simply in Morocco (I unfortunately cannot recheck exactly where since the item's info closed once I bought it, but I know for sure it's somewhere in Morocco. Front Back Scale The tooth is pretty small, about 2 1/4 inches, and is probably a front premolar (according to my understandings based on some basilosaurid jaws). I've heard somewhere in these forums that usually if there is a chance for a tooth to be Basilosaurus isis if it was 10+cm and found in Morocco, but he might be applying this only to incisors and canines, and this is a premolar/molar. Juvenile isis? Zygorhiza? Dorudon?
  7. Show us your basilosaurid teeth!

    I've recently bought a nice Basilosaurus (isis?) premolar which will arrive in a few days. I never see teeth like these in many places, and I'm just curious about what you guys have in your collection.
  8. What Type Of Whale Tooth Is This?

    I just received this today and was wondering what type of whale this tooth came from. It is from a river located near Beaufort, SC. The first photo is on a half inch grid. The tooth measures 3 inches long by1 inch in diameter. Thank you. -Bill H.
  9. Whale Tooth?

    Hey I found this interesting looking tooth the other day and was wondering if it's a whale tooth like the dealer told. It's North American in origin as far as he could tell. Here is what it looks like: From these pics is it possible to ID the specie? If so how rare is it to find a specie like this or to find a tooth this size in this condition? Thx again for the help guys! PS: in case some of you are wondering, no it's not a $5,000 tooth!! It's in Thai baht which is approximately $160-ish.
  10. What Type Of Whale Tooth Did I Find?

    I was wondering if someone could help me I'd this tooth. I am pretty sure it was for a whale, if I had to guess maybe a sperm whale? Thanks in advance!!
