  1. I got a box of micro matrix from PaleoCris - Bone Valley Formation from Florida and I am STUNNED by the beautiful colors and preservation! I knew Bone Valley stuff was good...but wow. And he threw in some "extra" fossils of a nice big echinoid and a claw of some thing...maybe extinct armadillo. I still havn't gone through all the matrix, but wanted to show ya'll some of the nice stuff: All are around 1/8 inch - 1/4 inch This crazy Fish tooth plate - Labrodon sp. I think this is Baracuda? I love the little ray teeth Rhynchobatus. Sadly, this one
  2. So I went hunting in Bone Valley yesterday, the same paid dig site I had originally gone to and met @Nimravis at, and came away with some gorgeous finds! To start off with my favorite find - a part of a Gomphothere tooth and a few other fragments: Then of course, as always, some Megs - found 3 complete ones with a bunch of frags, the complete ones are all small, 2”, 1.5”, and 1.2” in slant height: I also found a very complete Three-Toed Horse tooth: I found a whole bunch of sand tiger shark teeth, including, finally, one with a cusp:

    Bone Valley Find

    I’m currently at a pay site, collecting Bone Valley fossils. An individual next to me found this bone fragment, can someone identify what it is? It looks familiar, but what it is is not coming to mind right now. @Shellseeker

    Bone Valley Crocodilian Gastrolith?

    So did some fossil hunting yesterday and found what I was told was a Crocodilian Gastrolith. Which while technically just a rock, is still a really cool find. So I wanted to see if anyone else could confirm the ID or not!

    Pleasant surprises

    Out yesterday. Hunting one of the few spots available during the summer rains. It is mostly marine, sharks, rays, etc. Lots more effort for far fewer finds. Finding any bone is unusual, and I keep everything not a rock, and sometime I keep the rocks also.. There is a rock in this photo, but it LOOKED like a bone while hunting! I sort out all the small shark teeth, keeping jewelry grade and 10 of the best unbroken ones. The rest go to my hunting partner, who sells them on online. It is a recognition of all the contributions he makes to my hunting success. T

    Tooth, Tusk ?

    Hunting yesterday, We usually pack it in at 2 pm, start the journey home. It is about that time. This is generally a marine, Miocene environment. Bone is an unusual find. I pick this out of the sieve because it flashes blue. At first, I think tooth, and that's exciting, but then I see the brown and not so sure. Also rock can be agatized into blue colors here. Anyways, toss into the collection bag and on to the next sieve. Pretty Interesting? This is the photo that grabs my attention. 47 x 24 mm

    Megalodon Shell Tooth?

    @siteseer I was looking at a thread from 2010 that you were participating in and it was about a “shell tooth”. I found this piece a couple weeks ago, while in Florida, collecting at a Bone Valley site. I was wondering if there actually are “shell teeth”, and if so, do you think that this is one? Thanks for any assistance.
  8. Was digging/sorting through my fossils this morning - had a couple that I hadn’t yet gotten ID’d and wanted to ask about! So first is this tooth I originally thought was Carcharhinus of some kind, but on a close look it’s got no serrations at all, which is making me wonder if it’s a C. Hastalis? Second up is… whatever this is. Fish mouth plate of some kind? One side of it the “bubbles” pop out, the other side they’re craters. And finally, what I originally thought was gator tooth, then thought may have been antler, and I’m now back to thinking tooth but no

    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

  12. While on Sanibel Island, Florida, I decided to visit a “fee site” called Bone Valley Fossil Farm, located in Bowling Green, Florida. I ran across this site a couple weeks ago while searching the internet. I made a reservation last week to visit today. It has been in existence I believe for several months. It is located on a family farm and the owners excavate down to the fossil layer and then bring the material to the “Searching Stations” and parcel it out in sections. The nice thing with the way that they do this is that your car is 20 feet away from the section that you selected to hunt.
  13. Went with my wife to a pay site today - our second time here, but I convinced her to let me stay all day instead of just half the day this time! Overall it was a very lucrative hunt, and I’ve walked away with my new fav finds! Also had the pleasure of meeting @Nimravis who told me to post here, as well as taught me about a bunch of the fossils I found. Anyway, the finds: Starting with my fav, a mostly intact whale vertebrae: My new favorite Meg tooth - which happens to have lightning in the root: A baby posterior Meg tooth:
  14. hi gang, So this item is up for sale at a site that I cannot name. It is labeled "Bone Valley mammal tooth". I am thinking cetacean, but the root is awfully compressed. Thoughts? It's about 3.5 )9cm) inches long. Cetacean tooth? thanks
  15. Hello everyone! So something that I have been wondering recently is what is the prevalence of fossilized great white shark teeth? Any time I go online, into shops or shows there seems to be a lack of fossilized great white shark teeth. I always see megalodon teeth, mako teeth, and other fossilized teeth from all kinds of species of sharks but rarely do I see fossilized great white shark teeth. Is this because they aren't as common? Or are they just not as high of a demand as other teeth such as megs or makos? From what I understand they can be found in the Carolinas, Chile, and even here somet

    Florida 3/2022

    Trip to Florida last week was quick and exhausting. Wimped out on the planned Peace river trip, as was in 30s unexpectedly and I had not brought appropriate clothes. Instead did nearby Bone ValleybFossil Farm and enjoyed the day sitting in a lawn chair with a hose, washing out material (laziest AND muddiest fossilhunting ever). Couple next to me found 2 megs, I found three partial megs, dolphin tooth, partial whale tooth (?), fish plate, and about 20 other partial and complete shark teeth (bull, lemon, hemi). Found small piece (2?) of mastodon/mammoth/gomphothere tooth, pretty color and thick

    Bone Valley Hemipristis?

    Hello, So I've very recently learned about bone valley shark teeth, and thinking I might get a nice BV hemipristis serra tooth for my collection. Knowledgable members on this sub have been kind enough to show me examples and inform me that the classic, uniquely identifiable bone valley color is "solid white root + solid dark blade". As I'm still an amateur though, I wanted to ask TFF members to see if these following specimens that I found are indeed distinctively BV hemis, and which one is the nicest example of such? I've posted both lingual and labial surfaces of each.
  19. Hey all! I have this Meg from the Bone Valley Formation I have a question on. The tooth has some damage to the bourlette up to the blade. Does this look like it’s from a tool or something during fossilization? It appears to me like it’s old damage but I don’t know from what. Any help is appreciated thanks everyone as always!

    GREAT WHITE? OR Megladon?

    Found this lastnight and call me a rookie but I can't identify if she's a GW or a Meg tooth for the life of me! Beautiful 1.75in almost mother of pearl color with lighting bolt markings (common for the area I explore). No serrations and the root is higher up on the tooth which makes me think GW right!? But then it looks as if the root which typically dips lower on Meg teeth is missing but at some point in time was there! I don't know and when I Google Lens her it says she's an arrowhead??? Plz end my inner mystery...help lol! Jeez I love this stuff 20210805_071105.heic 20210805_071114.hei

    Megalodon or white shark?

    Hey Guys! This one is probably a lot more obvious than I'm making it. My head says Megalodon due to the age of Bone Valley and the size, but my gut says white shark due to no Bourlette, the shape of the enamel where it meets the root on the distal and mesial side, and the serrations. So I decided to seek out an outside opinion. This is from Bone Valley Florida. Any insight is greatly appreciated!
  23. I live in Florida and I've heard of some people going to locations in bone valley where it isn't restricted, I was wondering if anyone knows of any places where I could get in to find some fossils. Thank you anything would be helpful
  24. HI EVERYONE! Have not posted in a year. Working 2 jobs leaves no time for nothing but, I did manage to get out a couple times at least to my favorite spots and found something interesting maybe. The most unusual thing about it is the color. I found this in the Peace River Bone Valley formation. The water is tannin in this river colors everything dark. The first pic is a group photo of my finds. You will see it clearly stands out. also including some close-ups and I am sorry I am not great at all taking pictures. Its approx. 2'' at its longest point or 50mm. Its about 1'' or 25mm across. Thank
