    Some Incisors

    Here in Florida , we can have driving Thunder storms followed by Sunshine.. One areas get 3-4 inches of rain, another 5 miles away gets a trace. I frequently check the water depth gauges. One of my locations opened up and I tried with a friend for some deeper water hunting. First, I found a small horse incisor consistent with the Blancan age of fossils from this site. The most common small horse I find here is N. peninsulatus, and I think this is likely from that horse. Then a switch to modern, and I am thinking this is wild pig / boar, but not positive whether it is
  16. Hey guys. My fossil group found a submerged mastodon tusk while hunting. It’s completely underwater and very delicate (it falls apart super easy). Any idea on how to extract such a delicate tusk? The thing falls apart in your hand, we could only salvage some chunks last trip. As for preserving what would you guys recommend so the dang thing doesn’t fall apart? thanks!
  17. Wanted to share my finds from a quick shark teeth hunting trip in Florida. Found a very nice Mako, definitely the coolest tooth I've found yet.

    Tooth, teeth, or something else?

    Edit: sorry somehow the images got out of order. Just to make it more challenging, I guess. These are some other items I have found looking for shark teeth near Venice Florida, in the surf. I'm not sure if the first four are similar or not. All conical, and show worn or broken off layers. One is slightly corkscrews, and one has a bump on one side. The second batch are all similar, with ridges around a cusp, and a smaller end. The last looks like a human incisor, though I would guess it is from a deer or something similar. I found a couple pieces of fossilized antler in

    Unknown Vertebra in Venice

    Unknown fossil. Found in Pleistocene material. Inland, Venice, Florida. Specimen measures 65mm x 60mm. Smooth portion is 42mm high. I have found both Equus teeth and alligator jaw in same location. This item is a first for me. It appears to be possibly a caudal vertebra? Image 2 has a concave surface. Image 4 has a convex surface like it would match up with another concave surface. I think I have seen a photo of it before somewhere but I don't recall. Thank you for your ID assistance. -Regards, Michael
  20. Florida Stratigraphic Geology Interactive Map Link: https://ca.dep.state.fl.us/mapdirect/?webmap=7a85fea2918a4e1f8effdb5bc9fe87f9 This interactive map from the Florida Geological Survey and accessed through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection website are simply amazing. Many various maps, layering, tools, and data provided free to the public. This is not the most intuitive, user friendly tool, so it does take time to figure out things like dropping a GPS marker on a precise location or adding other map layers, but it is well worth the effort to learn how to use

    An interesting Bone

    With the River and creeks WAAAAY over my head, I have started to sort, review, reduce my collections from the last 3-4 months, starting from the most recent. I have a couple of interesting bones. The 1st I think in a cannon bone from a small pre_equus horse. Why small pre_equus horse? I find 1 Equus fossil at this location for every 100 pre_Equus horse fossils, plus this bone is too small to be an Equus cannon bone. Why Cannon bone ? Because it seems very similar to a photo of Equus Cannon bone created by @Harry Pristis. Harry identified as left leg, Mine seems to be the opposite ori
  22. My son will be vacationing in Florida for the next week and a half with his grangmother. Since the Peace River will be off limits for fossil collecting due to seasonal high water flow, I was hoping he could grab a gallon of micro-fossil matrix from along the river. Does anyone know any sites along the Peace River or any other sites I suppose where I could send them to grab a scoop or two? One positive might be submerged areas might give access to spots that normally would be considered bank and technically illegal to scoop. Thank you for any help. Pics are just a few of many small
  23. I thought this looked like a tooth crown, but there is nothing but the crown if that is what it is. Might well be something else. Found on a beach near Fort Pierce. About 3/4 inches square. Not so high. Thanks for your help.

    Fossil Tooth From Florida Beach.

    Found this tooth on a beach near Fort Pierce Florida. It is almost exactly one inch long across the crown and 3/8 inch wide. The width is very irregular as you can see. Thanks for your help.

    Peace River oddity

    I was out today with a friend hunting the Peace River. You might ask how. 90% of the river is way too deep and dangerous to hunt. I have a temperamental back which does not allow me to hunt areas that are less than knee deep. During season, there are many isolated areas like that, and for likely places we dig probe holes to determine if the area contains fossils. We identify areas which might be hunt-able when the river is 4 feet above normal. So a lot of small shark, ray teeth, mostly broken and a few finds that make the trip worthwhile.. On this day, a posterior Meg, a chunk of an
