    Bone Valley Micro Matrix

    On my recent visit to search through Bone Valley material for megalodon teeth, I also was collect screened material to bring home to search in the Winter. I have been going through some and have been quite pleased. Here are a couple pics of my finds, I was wondering if the last 2 pics are a portion of a drumfish mouth plate? @MarcoSr

    Peace River Odds and Ends

    Just looking over some of my finds from my Florida trip. Not quite sure which are fossils and which are just stones. All help is appreciated. All were found in the Peace River. First specimen: pics 1-3; second: pics 4-6; third: pics 7 & 8; fourth: 9 & 10; fifth: 11 & 12.
  3. Very rare find a Cuban Necronectes collinsi. This is only the third example I have seen come out of the limestone of the Canimar formation in the last 12 years.
  4. Wondering if anyone is planning to attend this years fossil festival in Aurora, NC Memorial weekend or if anyone who has attended previously has any recommendations/advice? I've spoken to the director and know the basics, just looking for any insight a first timer should be aware of.
  5. Hunted a creek which has produced fossils from the late Cretaceous thru the Pleistocene. Clearly a bit degraded but hoping for an identification. Is it a vertebra?Interesting pattern on the centrum.
  6. Found this large bivalve/clam in the new creek bed spot I discovered. As mentioned in a previous post, the spot is mainly Great Valley complex sedimentary rocks (Cretaceous), but also bordering Eocene sedimentary, Miocene sedimentary, and some intrusion of Pleistocene alluvium known. This was free-floating. These type of white clam fossils are relatively common in the SF Bay Area, but this is by far the largest I've found. Can anybody speculate as to how rare this size/quality of specimen is? It measures 48mm x 45mm x 37mm and quite dense/heavy. Any taxonomical speculation would be appreciated
  7. My 5 YO son found this just over our backyard fence in a seasonal creek bed. As you can see, appears to be a nice shell fossil, but what is most interesting to my son and I is what looks to be an impression of a shark tooth. The shape looks right. What do you all think? Is that a shark tooth impression? Also, any idea of what kind of shell (gastropod?) that is? BTW, The creek is a main drainage of the Northwest flanks of Mt. Diablo in the SF Bay Area, CA, USA. Every winter rocks and boulders wash down the creek, so I cannot know the specific geological time zone, but we've found

    Flag Ponds Weirdys

    Got some weird stuff from the Cliffs, been meaning to get them checked out. first one up i think is a bone fragment of some kind. it passes the tongue test. but someone on the FB group suggested it might be a fragment of a Gomp tooth perhaps? this is a bone fragment, but the porous nature of the middle has me thinking bird perhaps? also, the top edge is rounded and smooth so it looks to be a small diameter long bone. lastly is this piece, Im sure its probably a beaten up snaggletooth, but the cross section has me thinking mammal possibly?

    Possible protoceratid tooth

    @Harry Pristis identified one of these for me not too long ago. Could I possibly be lucky enough to have found another one? This one is quite a bit smaller than the last one, but still a big tooth! L-32. W-23.
  12. I found lots of petrified wood in the lower part of the Miocene Chalk Canyon Formation north of Phoenix. The layer is mostly sandy and pumaceous. Does anyone know what the siliceous 1mm long elongated spheres are or how they formed? Could they be fecal pellets, fungi or other fossils. I have seen similar structures associated with California Miocene palm wood. @paleoflor Penny is 19 mm across.

    Different ages, same site

    I was out hunting yesterday to a miocene_pliocene site that produces mostly small shark teeth with occasional surprises. In this instance there were three. 1st up... Upper molar Nannippus aztecus (11-5 mya) upper molar. Certainly Nannippus, likely aztecus based on size and location. Next , my unknown, a dolphin periotic earbone, 29 x 16 mm well worn and found in a miocene site. @Boesse And finally a Bison or Bos lower m3 unerupted enamel cap .. no roots. I was quite excited seeing the complete enamel in excellent unworn quality. But based on size

    Found Skull encased in rock!

    I' m a local photographer in Flagler Beach, FL. I frequent a local beach almost daily. I have come across quite an interesting find. Currently due to stormy weather causing rough waves and some higher than normal tides the rocks have been sliding down into the ocean and breaking apart. Well a wonderful treasure was exposed in one of the rocks. A skull. There is also a tooth and what looks to be bone vertebrate. I am in the process of excavating currently but would love to know who this skull belongs to. Any help is appreciated!!

    Fossil vert from Indonesia

    Need some help with identifying this fish vertebrate, can this one be a tuna vert? The size is a little bit more than 4 cm.
