Hey everyone, i have been down to Florida twice to the St. Augustin alligator farm, but never had time to go fossil hunting. I was wondering if any of you Florida people could tell me or PM me some general Florida sites. All i know is Gainsville, Peace River, and Venice Beach.(If you do tell me a site please dont make it accessible by motorized boat and no scuba diving sites)

I've done some fossil hunting at rock springs and wekiva springs. Lots of shark teeth to be found there.

Hi all - first post here. I've been fossiling some in Florida (total of probably 10 times, all in the Peace River). I don't live that far from the Wekiva River - are there Megalodon teeth there? Does anyone know? What is a good time to go, and where? Thanks so much.
