    Mammoth Tooth

    Found this partial mammoth tooth in June 2020 in the same Wauchula area of the peace was digging in mostly sand with some fine gravel. It is worn smooth probably from sand erosion over thousands of years or maybe mammoth was very old and had worn down its teeth ? Found it like 2 1/2 to 3 feet deep and even though its only part of a tooth was elated when it showed up in my screen. Looking at this stuff is making me wish the river was low enough to go out now especially with it being so hot would be nice to be waist deep in the river. Im sorry pic isnt very sharp but girl friend isnt here and h
  2. 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

    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

    Peace River and Key West Fossil

    I went to peace river a couple years ago one time. Went to one park - was pretty much over picked with craters everywhere. Found those in one illegal dug banks pit. They're the most easily identified pieces I could find - rest was just bone pieces, ark shell molds, and pieces of shells. Second picture is when I went to key west one time there was calcite pieces spread all over the beach - not too far from the fort. Two pieces of calcite had strong resembles to teeth. Third picture is the best I could find from the pieces of bones that I had found at peace river.

    Peace River wood

    I recently purchased a "Pay Dirt" box from forum member MikeG @Bone Daddy's site for a little something to do. In it was this piece of wood. Originally it was a very dark brown, almost black color (imagine that from Peace River). Anyway, I went over the front of it lightly with a 600 grit sanding cloth & the color lightened up nicely. Filed & polished a bit of the upper end & found that it may not be regular wood. Measures 7 cm long by 2.5 cm at it's widest. First 2 pics are the front & back. Pics 3, 4 & 5 are the polished bit at 60x, 75x & 100x respectively. Not used t

    Turtle Shell? Rock?

    Hi again yall, I have another set of pictures of something I found that I am not at all sure what it is, hope it's at least a fossil this time, haha. My first guess is some kind of shell from a turtle but again, huge newbie who probably has another cool rock to add to her collection. It is very nice to hold in your palm because of the shape and texture. Tried to get clear photos with a pen for size, found it in Arcadia Florida in the Peace River. Thanks as always!
  7. Found in Desoto County FL, in the Peace River. Just started fossiling and I'm high-key worried I may have just found a cool rock and not a fossil, haha. Help would be appreciated. Took the photos next to a pen for size and tried to get as crisp and well lit a photo as I could. Thanks in advance!
  8. I was out Monday unsuccessfully looking for inverts, but came back with a ton of shark teeth and a few of the more common vertebrate finds. would appreciate an ID id anyone would like to take a chance. The overall length is 101 mm. I'm thinking a dog sized animal but have no clue. Thanks for the look see!

    Peace River Identification Help

    Hey all, I've recently been to the Peace River and found some things I'd love help identifying. I've taken two angles of everything to hopefully show the detail neccessary. I'd be so happy for anyone's thoughts! My thoughts are: #1 no idea #2. Dugong bone #3. no idea #4. Turtle? #5. Petrified wood or bone? #6. Turtle shell? I wasn't sure if it could be that thick (over 1/2 an inch). #7 antler? #8. Bone or sloth tooth?

  11. Hello, I found four teeth I need help identifying. Apologies for my fingers in some pics I was trying to get the important angles. Thanks

    Tooth, tusk, or bust?

    My best guess is a peccary tusk for this fossil found in the middle peace river. I would love member feedback, thanks. Jim

    Unknown Teeth from Peace River, Florida

    I have two unknown fossils one being a tooth and the other I believe is a ray mouthplate/jaw bone. Sorry about the photo quality on the mouth plate it had a strange shape. Thanks
  14. This fossil is about an inch long and is quite thin. It reminds me of a pelvis bone. Thanks

    Another Peace River unknown

    Apparently I'm supposed to find odd things in this Peace River, Gardner locality matrix chunk. Like the other, I'm at a loss. 2 different items yet both the same.. I think. Pics labeled 1 & 2 are one item, 2 being an end view. Pics 3, 4 & 5 are another item. Pic 4 is an end view from the lower section of pic 3 & 5 is an end view of the upper section. Item in pic 1 is 2 mm long by 1.5 mm wide. 2nd item is 2 mm long by 3 mm wide. Any ideas? Pics taken at 90 x magnification.

    Peace River unknowns

    A couple years ago I got some fossils & a chunk of matrix from @Bone Daddy. The matrix was from the Gardner locality on the Peace River. I had picked at it off & on until I ended up with a hard block. Recently I soaked it in some water for a day, then let it dry some & started trying to break it up. I found some items that I'm not quite sure what to make of. The largest piece is 9 mm long x 6 mm at the widest & wedge shaped. The other 2 pieces were with it. Any idea's what I found? The pics are at 30 x magnification using a Dino-Lite w/ photo stacking.

    Peace River Bone

    The bone looks very slothish to me, but I’m unable to find an image of it. It has so many articulating surfaces on every aspect that I suspect it’s a carpal/tarsal from a small sloth. The overall size is 1.5 inches wide by 2.5 inches long. No damage at all, and pristine condition.
  23. After my fourth trip to the peace river here is my collection of my favorites. No close ups of any single teeth, but I’ve included a shot of four of my favorites. While I love the mammal teeth, my favorites are still shark teeth. It does amaze me the number of Meg pieces you can find. Its just a matter of time before a real nice one comes up in the sifter. That said, I never thought I’d find just piece of one, so overjoyed with what the river gave back. Not shown are the 700 plus other teeth that didn’t make the display.

    Help with deformed tooth

    I found this tooth yesterday and thought bison right away. But it appears to be deformed and or broken so it caused me to doubt my ID. I would appreciate feedback on what others think. The crown of the tooth measures 12mm x 20 mm and is 10mm tall. Thanks!

    Peace River findings

    My husband and I found these 3 bones in the Peace River in Florida. Can anyone identify them for us? This is my first time posting, so I hope the pictures are OK. Thank you so much!
