      Ryan Somma/Wikimedia/CC by SA Because soft cartilage doesn't preserve well in the fossil record, and because sharks grow and shed thousands of teeth over the course of their lifetimes, Florida's prehistoric sharks are known mostly by their fossilized choppers. The teeth of Otodus have been discovered in abundance all over the state of Florida, to the extent that they're a common .

    New evidence invalidates the former concept that Pleistocene shorelines are "terrace" cut and fill structures. Comparison of Pleistocene and Holocene sediments with morpholo gy of the shoreline indicates that Pleisto cene deposits accumulated in barrier island environments and that the "ter races" are former lagoon-salt marshes. Stratigraphic evidence supports six ma jor Pleistocene shorelines. Pleistocene Shore Lines in Florida and Georgia. Link:

    In a geologic sense, Florida is much more aptly defined by the margins of the Florida Platform: (1) the base of the West Florida Escarpment at sea to the west (approximately 3, meters deep), (2) the now-buried Georgia Channel System that extends southwest to northeast across south Georgia on the north, and (3) the Straits of Florida to the east.   Florida Georgia Line with Dan & Shay.

Model 1A has consistently spaced parallel shorelines and an absence of river deflections, such as characterizes most of the late Pleistocene coastal plain across Georgia.

Model 1B has divergence of shorelines toward and deflection of rivers away from the end with greater uplift. Today, only about one-third of the Florida Platform is above sea-level (Figure 1, top).

The current shape of Florida’s coastline is merely a snapshot in geologic time because sea-level is constantly fluctuating with our planet’s climate cycles.

In the Gulf of Mexico, the Platform extends over miles to the west of the modern shoreline. No, this is not a joke: one of the most common fossil animals of Pleistocene Georgia was the Giant Chipmunk, genus and species name Tamias aristus.

Despite its impressive name, the Giant Chipmunk wasn't truly giant-sized, only about 30 percent larger than its closest living relative, the still-extant Eastern Chipmunk (Tamias striatus).Point type Arkansas Louisiana* Mississippi Alabama Tennessee Kentucky Florida Georgia South Carolina North Carolina Virginia** Sample total Page-Ladson 3 3 Miller-like Cooke ( ) recognized seven Pleistocene shore lines in penin-sular Florida, but MacNeil (), basing his identification of ma-rine shore lines on the coexistence of shore-line searps, regarded only four of these as peaks of Pleistocene flooding (Table 1) Russell ( ), On the basis of the complete melting of the polar ice.
