Item# 1 - This seems to be a horse toe bone, but not sure. It’s very cylindrical in shape.
 

Item #2 - This looks very odd. Like a ray dermal spike, but not like any I’ve ever seen.


item #3 - No clue. It has a pattern on it and looked very curious.

You're in the right place, but what was meant here was to upload the images directly to this thread, not links to files that at some point may become dead, thus rendering this topic moot in future.

 This is a vertebrae. The most common vertebrae in the Peace River are dolphin, dugong, and horse. You have a very worn vertebrae, with all the vert processes missing. I usually all those verts that I can not identify to dolphin or horse.  If dolphin, it is a tail vert, which tend to be longer.

agree..very unusual.  I think it is a fish fossil, so unusual that I have never identified anything like it.

Some sort of scute.  I would think alligator first, then turtle second

 

Very odd items. I been doing this for 10 years and still always find fossils that I can not identify.

Thank you for the insight. Can’t wait to get back to the river. It’s super low right now.

I have made some of my best finds late in May,  including my largest GW,  3 years ago yesterday!!

Take advantage of different low water hunting techniques, before the summer rains flush us out.
