    Sirenia.jpg

    I 3d-printed some skull-replicas of 3 sirenia genera: West Indian Manatee (Trichechus manatus) Padific Dugong (Dugong dugon) and Steller's Sea-cow (Hydrodamalis gigas). I was really amazed about the fact that, despite the immense disparity in body-size between the extinct sea-cow and its extant relatives, their heads/crania were remarkably similar to each other in overall dimensions. The sea-cow skull was larger, but not by as much as one would think.

    Unknown Florida Fossils

    I have two gastropods for @MikeR to weigh in on if he has time. These were found in a pile of street material in a upcoming housing development in Sarasota County. I am assuming Tamiami Formation. 1. I am thinking Chicoreus floridanus but the opening looks different. On my specimen, it is fractured off a bit. 2. I am pretty sure this is Subpterynotus textilis, but being such a pretty fossil, I want to make sure. Now I will call on my resident experts @jcbshark and @Shellseeker , or anyone else that has an opinion, to aide in IDing th

    Manatee Scapula

    With a quick google image search, I’m left to believe this is a manatee scapula. Is this correct and is there any other information y’all may have? It’s not fossilized, but I think it’s pretty cool!
  4. Hi all - I did not have time in January when I normally write these up, but thanks to Covid quarantine I managed to get some time last month and write up a comprehensive review on my blog of every single 2019 paper in marine mammal paleontology. Enjoy! https://coastalpaleo.blogspot.com/2020/05/2019-in-review-advances-in-marine.html

    Manatee teeth?

    Howdy, I find these sifting at Venice beach. Are they worn down/broken wave worn pieces of manatee teeth and enamel? Some of them remind me of a very worn down half of an image A. from @Harry Pristis photo that was previously shared on the forum. I think they are so beautiful and I can tell it’s enamel but I never knew from what. thanks
  6. Just wanting to figure what these barnacles are attached to. I'm guessing a whale bone, but kinda want to be for certain. It's pretty damaged and large. It's pretty cool though. Found in nokomis Florida on a construction site.
  7. Found these in a small creek in North Florida. Have no idea what they could be. They could potentially fit together (they were found together)?? Unsure. That's my fossil hunting partners guess, but we're both pretty clueless. Manatee jaw? Help!

    Dugong or Manatee

    This is an excellent find, but I am unsure how to identify it and I also wanted to share the moment. Why excellent? Any fossil tooth with complete roots is rare and any Manatee or Dugong molar in any shape is rare for me. In 10 years , I have found 5 or 6 of these in Peace River hunting. So my question: Can a Trichechus manatus molar be differentiated from a Metaxytherium floridanum molar and , if so, which is this fossil? Details : Crown height - 45 mm, Crown length - 26 mm; Found in Peace River Watershed. Thanks for all comments and suggestions!!!

    Dugong manatee dilemma

    During my field works at Central Hispaniola I have been finding what appear to be manatees/dugongs ribs. As a rookie in the field of paleontology, which I am passionate about, could you help me determine if these dozens of pieces collected, in an elongated form and that are pinching at the end, as ribs of manatee/dugongs correspond or not to these vertebrates? ? They are dense and have small blackish dots like some mollusk fossils that I have also collected. Thanks, infinite thanks for helping me with this dilemma that fascinates me at the same time !!

    It kinda looks like an ear bone?

    Found this today, something struck me as odd so I stuck it in my pocket. It’s from the peace river. I’m looking at it, and it kinda looks like an ear bone from a dolphin or manatee, but I don’t know...it’s something, just can’t wrap my head around it. Any ideas?

    Little Manatee River?

    Has anyone ever fossil hunted on the Little Manatee River? If so, is it worthwhile? I spoke to a ranger who works at LMR SP, and he had no idea. It was like I was speaking in Greek or something. I did some looking around on the web, but can't find much about LMR.

    Bone

    My father had found this bone about 2 years back, we think it is a dugong or manatee bone. It was found in Venice, Florida. Thanks to anyone who can identify.
  14. I have been found relatively abundant fossil remains of what I think can be dugong (manatee) ribs and other related bones (?), in the Caribbean. Mostly end on pointed-ends. I have heard about the burial social preferences of manatees also. They are relatively common but any skull has been found yet. Can you help me to ID these bone-like fossils?? How to differenciate it even from fossil whales. Thanks deeply for all your help adorable Community !!
  15. What do you guys think of these manatee teeth? I've looked around online at different pictures and the first one seems a little too perfect.

    New Ear Bone

    Hello I'm not sure if it belongs to a cetacea or a manatee, could someone help me, thanks.

    Curiosity Killed The Newbie...

    I would love input as to what this tooth may be. Found in the St. John's river (actually my toes found it). The folds and whatnot just piqued my curiosity as I have never seen a tooth like this. It's small and flat and I can only guess it came from a mammal. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    The Looper Collection

    A family of fossil hunters collects specimens from the Mississippi River in northwest Louisiana, northeast Mississippi, and southeast Arkansas. They've displayed their finds on the below linked website. Among the most exciting fossils in my opinion are of manatee and stag-moose. The latter is very rare in southeastern fossil sites and must date to a cold stadial . The manatee must date to a warm interglacial or interstadial. http://www.cwreplicas.com/index1.html
