    Unknown Bone Valley Vertebra

    My only time out Fossil Hunting in the last 2 months was October 20th.. A great day, very relaxing. The water in the creek was deep and fast, so I did not come up with my usual quantity or quality. That is a Rostral tooth, a Vertebra, and a smattering of small teeth, some colorful. Here is one worth sharing, small and pretty. I imagine micro fossil hunters are used to seeing such treasures. Most just slip thru my screens. What I am attempting to do is ID the Vertebra... It is from a small animal, maybe 50-75 pounds based on size of the Vert. Because o

    Tooth, barb, bone

    Out yesterday, found some odds and ends for ID... Tooth.... Note the serrations. A Barb or something else... Toe bone... I cleaned it with a water_bleach solution... Glad I did as the texture became clearer.... I have seen a MUCH larger version of this fossil, just hope it also comes a a smaller version...

    2 Tridactyl Horse upper cheek teeth

    Have not been out hunting in too long. Water too high makes everything harder. However, next week I will have 2 relatively minor procedures that will stop my hunting for 3-4 weeks. Under that pressure, went back to a location where I thought I could find waist deep water, based on previous experience. Fast current, but around waist deep. I thought that I might only find small shark and ray teeth, but that also was OK. Just to get out and hunt in the sunshine would be a pleasure. I found the expected shark/ray teeth plus a long equus lower tooth, a couple of nice dermal dent

    Jaw with 1 broken tooth

    Again, a fossil from yesterday.. At 1st I thought Alligator, but now , mostly unsure. The jaw is 57 mm long and 25 mm high.. The tooth piece is 7 mm diameter and 14 mm long. I will look for comments when I wake ...
  5. So I’ve been doing a lot of fossil hunting lately, and as such, went back to the dry dig site yesterday, hoping to get at least one of my current 2 white whales: A complete Meg over 3”, or a rhino, dire wolf, smilodon, or Dugong tooth. Neither of these things happened, but I did walk away with some great stuff, so without further ado: Starting off with Megs as always: 7 complete Megs. The one in the centre I’m convinced is a Chub - it’s got cusps. Small ones, but they’re definitely there. Here are the better frags I found, including one almost complete, white
  6. Does anyone know what happened to Bone Valley Fossil Farm? My family and I were looking forward to going here, but when I went to book there is no trace of this place except for a Facebook page link that has been pulled down. Thanks.
  7. 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:
  8. So went back to the dry dig site today, hoping to find a 3”+ Meg. Did not find one. Did find 3 Megs, all under 2” though. And loooots of whale stuff. Tooth, ear bones, small verts. Also found some great Hemis, some horse teeth (3-toed? Pre-Equus? Not sure). Anyway, here we go: To start off, the Megs and Frags, happy with the complete Megs today, despite being small: Now all the Whale stuff! Tooth, ~3”, which is super cool: 2 ear bones: Allllll the bits of verts: Next up, the massive chunks of tur
  9. 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

    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.
  15. 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

  19. 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.
  20. 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:
  21. 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
  22. 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
