    A few more Peace River Unknowns

    I missed these few fossils when trying to ID some unknowns from the Peace River a few days ago. 1. This one really intrigues me. Hopefully not just coral . 2. Very pitted. 3. I am a little unsure of these teeth. They just had a different appearance from the other teeth I could ID with confidence. I will repost a few from an earlier try for identification. 4. Bone of some kind 5. Broken tooth? Of what? A ridge down the length of the tooth visible in the first picture. Break visible in the second pic.

    Peace River Femur

    I had the privilege of a day on the water with JCBShark and Shellseeker. When I found this bone, they both thought modern. It sounds fossil like when I hit it against something hard but the flame test showed that at best it is old, in that a slight but definite smell permeated the air when put against a flame. Whether a "young" fossil or modern, I still want to try and ID this. The prominent ball just stands out to me as being different. The lesser trochanter is fractured off.

    Peace River Unknowns

    Having returned from a lovely vacation to Florida, I have examined some fossils that were brought back with me. There are always unknowns in my collection , but year by year I require less and less assistance in IDing finds!!! This year, I am down to these five: 1. A large bone with odd joint surfaces. Not sure of the owner and not sure what bone I am looking at! 2. A tooth that was fractured. Gator? The reason for thinking of the ridge running down the tooth in the first picture. The 2nd pic is of the fractured surface. 3. Odd looking bone

    Wood or maybe bone?

    This was found in the Peace River in Central Florida.

    Bone or suggestive shape?

    Picked this up Wednesday on my last visit to the Peace River. I was prospecting on some new sites and having modest success with small shark teeth and turtle shell pieces when I pulled up my first complete dolphin/porpoise periotic. In the next sifting screen I found the below specimen. I thought it could be a partial axis vert of some type but am not sure it is anything more than a suggestively shaped rock. Any input on what it may be would be appreciated.

    Jigsaw Tusk

    I have been lucky to find pieces of an ivory tusk (mammoth or mastodon) in the Peace River approx. 2 weeks ago. I have taken some photos to show what it looked like when found, two after consolidating showing how some large pieces fit together and then photos of the many loose pieces. I will have a nice jigsaw puzzle to work on once I consolidate the remaining pieces. I am hoping for suggestions on what glue or adhesive to use to try and rebuild the tusk. I have researched options that included super glue, gorilla glue and other adhesives. Which is best and easiest to work with? Ph

    Peace River on Nations Weather Service site

    I thought this might be of interest to those in our area of Central Florida for checking the Peace River, we had storms last night in our area of central Fl so I was interested and wanted to share NSW RIVER CHART Arcadia Bartow Zolfo Springs Also to learn more about the Peace River for new people Peace River State Park

    Mio-Pliocene Whale Ear Bones from Florida

    Here are two small whale petrosals that I can't identify -- can I get some help? I am not certain, but I think they are different species. What do you think? @Boesse@Shellseeker

    ID Help Jaw fragment

    Found the below specimen in the Peace River recently. I have spent several hours looking at images of small fossil jaws, fossil fish jaws, etc. I haven't found anything that I could see as a match. I am now hoping someone may recognize this. The holes appear to have an interior channel running in between inside of the specimen. Lighting was a problem as I was taking the photos and these are the best I could do for now. Hope they are sufficient. Any input is appreciated, thanks.
  11. My trips to the Peace this year so far have been so disappointing, I've resorted to bringing home unidentifiable bone scraps. The following photos show 2 of the latest. The one on the right is similar in density to dugong ribs, so it may merely be a tumbled vert, but the angled faces confused me. The other little bone is wedge shaped and looks to have articulating surfaces on the broader edge. Appreciate any suggestions you might have. Thanks.
  12. Hello everyone! I recently dug up this juvinille mammoth tooth and wanted to know if anyone can tell me how complete it is? I know it's missing the roots but I wanted to know how many plates they usually have? Also- is there a way to tell if it was from a Colombian? Thanks in advance for any insights! Ill do a full trip report soon

    Partial Vert?

    I believe the below specimen is a partial vertebra. But if so, of what? Or is it just too broken to ID? Any input would be appreciated, thanks!

    Tooth Root?? ID Help

    Posted the below a few weeks ago with some other finds hoping to get some assistance with an ID. I think this could be the root of a mastodon or mammoth tooth. I am hoping for input from anyone who has an idea or experience with a similar find. Thanks for taking a look.

    Hunting Rivers or Creeks?

    So I recently got to go to the Peace River fossil hunting (in Brownsville boat ramp) for the first time with some good results (small shark teeth and LOTS of bones), but no bigger pieces. So I started to wonder if going into some nearby creeks would contain more bigger items like Megalodon teeth since they would be less picked? In the river we didn't go very far from the boat ramp, so if we went a lot farther would I be more likely to find some Megs? I guess my over all question is if the nearby creeks contain more unpicked fossils than the peace river. -Metro

    Equus - Seeking confirmation

    Found this bone in the Peace River early last week. I believed it to be a mammal toe bone or something similar. After hunting for comparisons here, on line and from texts I have on hand I believe it to be an Equus medial phalanx. The size in millimeters is approximately 40.1 X 40.3 x 23.5. I would appreciate any input confirming or pointing me in another direction. Thanks for taking a look!

    Vertebra? Any ideas?

    Found this bone on the Peace River, FL today. I was searching a new spot when several pieces of ivory tusk were found and I could feel some large bone material under water but was having trouble bringing it up. When it finally surfaced I first thought - vertebrae - and I am still leaning that way. It is approximately 6 3/4" x 6 3/4" x 5 1/4" and heavy. Question is, if vertebra - from what? I would appreciate any input, opinions, comments. Thanks. Also found there today was a tapir molar, mastodon and mammoth tooth fragments, horse teeth and many shark teeth.

    Peace River this week/Next

    Hello! I know there are a lot of threads on the peace river.l, and I’ve spent about an hour reading through them and just want to ask a few question. Sorry if they may be repetitive. 2 years ago we went to Peace River with the amazing John from this forum. He was so helpful, kind and informative and we greatly appreciate him! We are coming down this week into next and would really love to go to the peace river again. I just had a few questions in case my husband and I venture alone. Is there a good time to best avoid gators? If we were not able to g
  19. Hello! We will be traveling to cocoa beach and driving to Tampa then making a stop in Venice beach starting next Saturday. I have been reading information on searching the peace river and this will be our first time. I want to make sure we do this right, does anyone have any advice or guidance? We do not have any equipment but will go buy some and are willing to. I did look up the river water level and currently it is 12in under, which I read is good for fossil gathering. We have our fossil permits for Florida. I have talked to my club up here in Michigan and oddly enough not too ma

    ID Help Please

    This specimen was found in an area with a lot of Dugong rib bone and other fragments. Initially I tossed on the river bank with the pieces I didn't intend to keep. Taking a second look I thought it could be an ear bone of some type. After a lot of searching on this site I think it most resembles Sirenian ear bone and I am hoping for confirmation or redirection on what it is. Thanks for any help you all can provide.
  21. I have spent many hours on this forum, but this is the first time I am posting because this inner ear bone has me completely stumped. It is the first inner ear bone I have found, and it appears to be the periotic of a small/medium cetacean. I see strong similarities with some dolphins and pygmy sperm whale specimens also pulled from the Peace River in Arcadia, FL, but none that really match up. I am new to identifying anything beyond teeth, but I was excited to find this and would love to have a better idea of what animal it is from.
  22. Hi all! Im new to the forum and I have what seems to be some kind of mammal claw. It's almost exactly 1 inch long and I found it digging a creek near the peace river. Any idea what it is specifically? Also if this isn't the place to ask for ID help I do apologize. I didn't see any specific spot on the site to ask. Thanks guys
  23. So I recently made a post showing some of the teeth I pulled from the Peace River over the holiday break at the end of 2019 ( link below ). I love Megalodon teeth with a passion. Like many other hunters, they are my goal when I go out fossil hunting. I have found though that river teeth are much more fragile and lighter than most land found teeth. I'm not sure if that is due to properties in the water. Maybe over time the rivers wash away some of the minerals in the teeth making them more fragile and worn down. Either way after my 3 day river hunt I was happy with the haul of Meg teeth that I

    A carpal/tarsal from the Peace River

    Hello Fossil Forum, it has been a long time since I've been on here, but I managed to get back down to Florida for a couple weeks and went out to the Peace River twice. It's been almost 10 years since I dug the gravels and I had a blast. I have all sorts of fun stuff to look through, identify, and label. This bone is particularly puzzling to me. It seems pretty distinctive with the large elliptical/rounded articular facet and the planar facet on the opposite side. Without a comparative collection to look through, I haven't been able to pin it to anything. (I have a couple leads, but n
  25. It had been a while since my last good fossil hunting trip so I was very excited to have free time over most of December. I had three free days the week before Christmas and I made use of everyone of them. The first day I went out with the goal of trying new areas that I had not tried before, so I spent most of day one trying new locations and coming up with only one good spot that produced some nice smaller teeth but nothing too amazing shark tooth wise. I did however find my first Tapir tooth but the root structure was missing. The next day out was spent mostly adventuring throu
