I wanted to share a few of my finds from this year, but cannot create an album yet. These are from several different trips out to the Peace River. The lighting was not ideal, but I tried to get the photos to where you can see the finer details. If you have more info on the specific species these may belong to, please let me know.

A few teeth front and back - The one on the left may be a fish tooth, the others may be incisors but of what animal I am not sure. They all have a polished, glossy feel to them.

Thanks Bullsnake. have a lot of items yet to photograph, just starting that process since I have a little extra time this week. Will be posting some of the unknowns in the ID Thread. Here are some additional items.

Possible coprolite?

The left 3 are alligator or crocodile teeth. I think the one on the right is a barracuda tooth.

These are some earlier photos. These are turtle neural scutes front and back.

A few unknowns, front and back

Most of these are tooth material and shown in previous photos. The top right is probably a piece of antler.

This is shaped like a hoof and has an interesting pattern on the bottom, but I'm not sure what it is.

I will be very interested in any specific species identifications. I am under the impression that the primary fish mouth plate from the Peace River is from a puffer fish. The Peace is a wonderful gift. Today was overcast and cold, but Wednesday was sunny and warm all day. It does not get any better. SS
