Unknown Gainesville Creek Fossils

Recommended Posts

GatorBait

Hello everyone, I recently went fossil hunting in Rattlesnake Creek of Gainesville, Florida (Late Miocene) and uncovered many different fossils but three of them I am unsure of the identity of them. I believe one may be a type of vertebrae, but the others I can not place. The creek is shallow, relatively fast moving with a sandy bottom but many areas where gravel, fossils and stones accumulate. The first 4 pictures are of the same fossil, the next 3 of the the second, and the last 3 pictures of the last fossil. I would appreciate any attempts to help identify. Thank you very much!

The pictures are not showing for me. 

There is a problem at the moment and you may have to downsize the pictures in order for them to post.

Try resizing the pictures to less than 1 megabyte.

The first and second look like rocks to me but the third is definitely bone. Its a bit small to draw any conclusions, other than “Chunkosaurus”

Thanks for the help so far everyone. The pictures should be sufficiently small by now, as they are all under 1 megabyte. Hopefully it should work better for you all.

I agree with @WhodamanHD the first two appear to be geologic (rocks) and the third looks like a small unidentifiable piece of bone
