    Hi guys,

    Any one know of a turtle with an attitude on the Miocene of Florida? The peace River was to high (covering trees high) so went to creeks close by. Found two of this (photos below represent one) turtle shells, to my surprise they have some nasty spikes. Anyone can help with an ID?

    Regards,

    Alex

    It seems I need to do research before posting. They are portions of the ribs. Most likely Soft shell Turtle. Any idea on possible Genius?

    I showed it to our prep lab manager, whom specializes in turtles. It’s a snapping turtle costal, but uncertain of the genus.
