    Florida Gastropod Identification Help

    Hello everyone, I found this gastropod along the Sanibel Causeway in Ft. Myers, FL. They were in a pile of shells being used for landscaping so I presume that the sediments came from a nearby quarry of ?Pleistocene age, possibly the Caloosahatchee Fm. Can someone help me verify and identify this fossil? Family Turridae? Thank you!
  2. Can anyone help me with the following fossils? (what species etc.). Made a selection of a bigger compilation (most important fossils are shown). Kind regards
  3. Can anyone help me to determine the fossils on the pictures? They are all found were bone fragments from Pleistocene and/or Holocene material has been found. Could the teeth belong to Bos primigenius (Bojanus, 1827)? I think they belong to the above mentioned art. I also found some horse teeth at some locations. The brownish coloured teeth are from Zeeland. The black teeth are from Limburg (found in water/creeks). They are black and/or brown and fossil (not recent material judging by the colour and erosion).

    McFaddin Beach: Turtle, bone? Or ?

    Hi everyone! We made a trip to McFaddin Beach a few months ago (mishmash of Pliestocene materials wash up), and found these two items, which _at first_ we thought were 1. A bone (left) and 2. a turtle scute (right), all photos. BUT - the item on the left, the bone, has kind of a nice finish, with small bubbles, on the inside (lower left photo). ?? And the item on the right, the scute, has a very interesting texture on the two flat faces. Could it still be turtle? Or could it be something else? Your input appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Shark Vertebral Centra ?

    Inland Venice, FL. Typical Pleistocene material in spoil pile. First possible shark vertebrae I have found after hundreds of searches here. 5 cm diameter, 2 cm thick. Is it shark? Can an age/species able to be determined with only 1 vert? I also found (6) Lightning Whelk shells in this pile. thanks -Michael

    Cites and Fossils?

    So I was looking at some cave bear jaws for sale and saw that the same website also offers brown bear jaws(fossils). Which makes me wonder if the cave bear jaws turn out to be from an extant species,will I get in trouble? As many of you may know, pleistocene fossils contain both extinct (cave lion, mammoth, etc. ) and extant (jaguar, bear, tapir etc.) Does anyone have any experience regarding this?

    Osteoderm--glyptodont?

    Found this in Brazos River, Texas near Brookshire in sandy gravel matrix. Pleistocene era. It's pretty small. But could this be a glyptodont osteoderm? It doesn't look like the turtle/tortoise pieces I normally find. The seams are very pronounced, and the grain on broken places is very fine and not as spongy as the turtle pieces.

    Venice Osteoderm?

    These two pieces came out of a dump truck with older Pleistocene material in Venice, FL. Found 5 Lightning Whelk shells in this load. Large piece of shiny osteoderm has other bones in the matrix. I have not found this type of piece before. ID welcomed. - Michael
  9. Hi all, I'm a newbie to the forum and fossils in general, so need all the help I can get! Found this on the coast in the UK today. It appears to be the fossilised end of a limb bone. It's heavy, nearly a 1lb, and is as hard as rock. It's 4.5 inches long (11.5cm) and 2.5 inch widest. Any help from the keen fossil minds on this forum would be fantastic.

    Pleistocene-Thick Bone Frag

    I found this chunky bone end fragment in the Brazos River, sandy gravel matrix, Pleistocene era. This may be a chunkosaur, but since there are at least a couple of possible identifying characteristics here, I'm hoping that someone with more experience than I have could help me narrow this down. Didn't seem to fit calcaneus or astragalus, but it does show a groove and two points on one side that are pretty well defined. Image One: Flat face Image Two: View of taller side Image Three: View of shorter side

    Pleistocene Bone

    Found in Creek stuck in wall sediment by Corpus. Was next to arrowheads I will do burn test soon but it might be only 5 - 15,000 years old so I dont know if it will pass
  12. My girlfriend, Valerie and I were visiting my aunt in West Palm Beach, Florida. She is 90 and lives in a senior residence. I wasn't planning to go fossil hunting or even thinking about fossils. However, on our last night there, we were walking in the neighborhood to burn off a few calories when I spotted a number of fossil shells in front of an apartment complex. We spent about half an hour searching the shells for complete ones in good condition- found over twenty species. Valerie got into it too and found some excellent specimens. After that we began spotting fossil shells everywhere. It's a
  13. Hi all, I'd appreciate any input you have on this piece please. I bought a lot at auction only labelled 'North Sea Pleistocene'. I live in the UK, so there's a fair bit of coast that can get North Sea fossils washed up, usually nowadays seems to be Norfolk area - unfortunately I have no way of knowing whether that is the locale. This measures 170x100x50MM approx at its longest/widest points. I suspect its from a sort of deer/small horse sized mammal but don't really have any further ideas. It could have broken off something larger. Thanks in advance for a

    Florida Pleistocene Canine Teeth

    Found these teeth recently along the Peace River in Florida. Was curious what species these may be from. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Camelops Rib?

    Hi All, I am new to this forum. I am over my head in what is, in my novice opinion, a preponderance of quartz stone tools that go back to the Pleistocene. Among the unverified relics, I have found a variety of bones which appear to have been altered for use as tools. Additionally, they have what appear to be teeth marks at the edges, as if a person was holding them in hand and biting. I wanted to post a pic of a rib that I think belongs to a Camelid. I have spent a lot of time looking over pictures of all sorts of mammal ribs, and Camelids come the closest. Additionally, I vi

    Vertebral Epiphyseal Plate ID

    Galveston Bay dredge spoils, Beaumont formation late Pleistocene. Collected this vertebral epiphyseal plate this afternoon. Based on size and shape I'm guessing a proboscidean?
  19. This is a turtle shell fragment I collected today from Galveston Bay dredge spoils. (Late Pleistocene Beaumont formation) Is this a partially healed bite mark or some sort of pathology?

    Camel tooth ID

    Any thoughts from our mammal experts on a genus/species of this camel tooth? Size is 6x5 cm Pleistocene from Iowa thanks in advance!
  21. Found this on the surface in a Brazos River feeder creek near Houston. It was not near any known exposure, but the Brazos itself transport marine Eocene and Paleocene from up north. It also erodes out Pleistocene bone pretty often. The bank of this feeder creek was sandy with clay underneath. One end of the cross section appears to show something organic within. When looking in from the empty end, the cavity wall is rough but doesn't look like bone-porous. Lick test of the outer surface is positive, noticeably, which makes me think this is marine. Overall, the segment is 1" i
  22. Hello, I found these bivalves in north Cape Coral, FL. They were in a pile of shells being used for landscaping so I presume that the sediments came from a nearby quarry of ?Pleistocene age, possibly the Caloosahatchee Fm. Can someone help me verify and identify these fossils? Thank you!
