My 2nd Florida excursion 3-13-19

Finally managed to get out for a few hours when I visited Florida earlier this month.  Walked in to a Peace river tributary where I got to spend a few hours shifting gravel while keeping an eye on the local wildlife.  Was interesting how different the finds were when compared to the previous site which was about 25 miles further north.  Nothing overly special, but was a pleasant way to spend an afternoon.

Found a lot of bone fragments this trip, but no dugong which surprised me after my first experience.  There were also fewer shark teeth this time around.  Not sure what the big bone chunk in the upper left is from as there is very little of the surface left, but the fragment is 4 x 5 x 2.5 inches

Tentatively identified as a sawfish vert based on the groove.  The grid squares are quarter inch
