I LOVE the dire wolf tooth! Found any canines there? Carnivore teeth are my main interest in fossils!!! Are the cottonmouth & armadillo pieces fossils?

Unbelievable finds!!!! My first fossil found 50 years ago, was  in a cave of sorts, an old mine shaft.  So your fossils bring back memories. Thanks

Great finds. I'd be curious to see your paper once it's done.

Thank you everyone, going to take more pictures today.  I need to do more sorting of the elements and hopefully narrow down some of those tiny teeth for identification.

A Cottonmouth Viper fang

This looks pretty robust for a fang and there is an odd bump on the side. Is there a slit near the tip for the venom?

Here’s a modern set I have (copperhead instead of cottonmouth).

@Al Dente Very cool, that will actually help me as I have a few broken fangs that I am not sure if they are crotalus or agkistrodon,  they do have the venom delivery slits.  Will post them soon.  Taking pictures of this small stuff is really difficult, heh.

These are such great finds! Thank you for posting photos.  They're well done, and it's really helpful to see examples of smaller fossils like these.
