Look like shark skin?  It's actually fossilized bark of the 100-foot, scaly barked Lepidodendron tree (photo below), a plant fossil found in coal seams around Tennessee, dated to the Pennsylvanian period (300 million years old).

Below is David who found this specimen in West Virginia on the Ohio River near Harts.  We at first thought it was petrified coral. I think he's pleased with his find!  We were delighted he shared it with us.

GLYPTODONT Scutes

 (Glyptotherium floridanum)

Horse Creek, Florida, Pleistocene Era

Below is a photo of a GLYPTODONT at the State Museum in Columbia, SC, and a close up of the bony growths on the back like an alligator, called "scutes"

Glyptodont-Columbia SC museum.jpg (37928 bytes) Glyptodont skutes.jpg (37537 bytes) 

Glyptodont (Greek for "grooved or carved tooth") is a slow-moving, herbivorous member of the Armadillo family but the size of a small car (1000 kg, armor up to 5 cm thick, it was 5 feet tall x 10 feet long. The GLYPTODONT Scutes (the bony armor/osteoderm) kept this huge creature safe from predators. It went extinct 10,000 years ago.  The teeth resemble a capybara.  The Glyptodon's feeding habit was to graze along a water's edge, where both capybara & glyptodont fossils are commonly found.  It originated in South America and spread northward to North America.  Most glyptodont fossils are found in Florida.

ARMADILLO SCUTES, 

Florida River, Pleistocene Era

giantarmadillophotolink.jpg (60692 bytes)

From the giant armadillo (Holmesina septentrionalis), much larger than today's armaillo.  The giants had 36 teeth, hundreds of bony scutes, both retangular and pentagonal in shape, four toes on front feet, three on the back.  Color is typically black from the carbon & manganese mineral content in the ground where it fossilized. A "Scute" is a section from the external bony or horny plate, enlarged scales covering the exterior of some animals such as turtle, armadillo or the extinct glyptodont. This polygonal-shaped plate is part of the flexible armor of a giant Ice Age armadillo or "pampathere". These creatures migrated to the southeastern United States from Central and South America.

TAPIR TEETH (Tapirus veroensis)

Found in the Withlahoochee River (Florida), Pleistocene Era

tapirphotolink.jpg (18173 bytes)

An Odd-toed Ungulate, semi-aquatic, a hoofed mammal that represents herbivorous animals today.  They are bizarre creatures with heavy pig-like bodies, large odd-toed hoofed feet and long, flexible snouts like an elephant's but shorter.  A large tapir lower tooth resembles that of a small mastodon tooth.  Tapirs today remain unchanged since they first evolved millions of years ago.

SEAL FOSSILS

California and Alaska

Allodesmusphoto.jpg (15934 bytes)

This sea lion ancestor Allodesmus thrived in the Miocene bay that covered what is now Bakersfield.  Many of its skulls have been found.

Judging by the number found in the local Sharktooth Hill bone bed, large numbers of the animal lived in this area during the Middle Miocene (13.5 to 15 million years ago).

An almost-complete skeleton of Enaliarctos, the ancestor to modern seals and sea lions and to Allodesmus, an extinct sea lion genus, was discovered in Northern California. Allodesmus looked much like modern sea lions, but had some important differences.

Allodesmus had large eyes, which helped it see underwater, but, unlike sea lions, its ears were unsuited for hearing underwater. Allodesmus declined into extinction about 10 million years ago.

LLAMA  FOSSILS

50,000 years old, Pleistocene, Suwanee River, Florida

llama fossil.jpg (28387 bytes)

There are three living genera and six species in the Camelidae family. They include the Old World 'true camels', the Dromedary (single-humped) and Bactrian (two-humped) camels, and the four New World llamines; llamas, vicunas, alpacas, and guanacos. Llamines, or llamas, are distinguished from camels in that they lack a hump, they have more of a domed cranium which houses a larger brain then camels, and they have a distinct enamel "buttress" on their molars.

Camelids first appear in the fossil record in the middle Eocene of North America. From the first distinguishable fossil camelid (Poebrodon) through to the Recent forms, camelids have ranged in size from about 3 feet tall (Genticamelus), to approximately 17 feet tall at the head (Aepycamelus). Over 50 species have been recognized in the fossil record, although today only 6 species remain.
