First time at GMR, didn't find the whale tooth or vertebrae that I wanted to find, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! Was away from my vehicle for four hours. Was not prepared for all of the glass though! 

 

Curious if anyone can identify anything in the last two pictures. The small piece isn't supposed to be in that. I'm not sure if the black thing is anything, I just thought it had an unusual pattern.

Im thinking two largest pieces are "Chunks-O-Turtle" .

Dark piece might be a bone sliver, hard to tell from far away. 

The little guy...?

Ah turtle would make sense. I initially didn't think it was a fossil due to having a little bit of flex, but because of the number of teeth found immediately before and after shoveling it up I thought I should keep it to confirm. 

 

Thanks!

Is the shell section fossilized? Not necesarily recent.

Nice little coral in your second pic.

Even though the turtle parts you found were with fossils it may yet be recent.

I don't believe so? But I've only collected teeth in the past so I'm not sure. It will bend a little bit, so I assume not. Old enough to have no smell though, which is nice

The L-shaped bone is a scapula.

Congrats.

As others have said, looks like turtle, most likely recent.

Looks to be a nearly intact pygal shield, the rearmost part of the carapace. Modern or not, still a really neat find!

Nice. Drive 20 miles south of Greenville and everything is flooded.

Thanks everyone!

 

Meant to post a closer image of the black piece. 

 

Does it look like a bone fragment or random rock?

Yes bone. But please dont ask from what.

I'm afraid the best we will be able to come up with is from something dead. :bone:
