    Sandbar Shark

    From the album: Sharks

    This species of shark is commonly seen in aquariums - you can recognize it by its proportionately large dorsal fin.
  2. Largemouth Bass

    Is this an Auriculatus?

    The seller states that this is a ~13 mm posterior O. auriculatus tooth from Bone Valley. It looks similar to the lower posteriors in this paper, but I would like to get a more educated opinion before adding it to my collection. Unfortunately, these are the highest quality images given.

    Central florida unknown

    Hi there! Recently looking at some fossils I found land hunting in South Venice and this one had me stumped. Granted I'm no expert, I tried to ID it from the web and couldn't come up with anything. It does have one ridge area like some other mammal teeth. Just an odd fossil to me. Thanks!
  4. Hello all, On a bone valley fossil hunting trip, I turned up a fossil I was a bit unsure about. My best guess was a sawfish rostral tooth. Let me know your thoughts and some bonus pics at the end! Here is what I believe to be a porpoise tooth (the other side is a bit busted up) And here is a riker frame of some of my better bone valley shark teeth I found. Thanks for looking!

    First Two Bone Valley Trips

    It's been sometime since I've posted anything. I was busy collecting fluorescent minerals for several years and then last month we moved from NJ to FL, Still getting the house set up but I've managed a couple of trips to the Bone Valley Fossil farm. Yesterday was five complete megs and the top ball from the femur of probably a Mammoth. Here's a few pics. john

    From Bowling Green, FL. Each fossil is about 1 cm across.

    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 ...
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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 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!
  17. 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:

    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

    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

    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.
  21. 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
