    I do a lot of Internet searches. At one of the per_pay land hunting sites, these photos were posted in mid December 2023. I think it might be a Goniodelphis hudsoni jaw segment with 6 teeth. @Boesse Just sharing and asking for any comments and suggestions . To me, this is a fantastic find... Some comments from Bobby in this thread https://www.thefossilforum.com/topic/129508-iniid-tooth/ A PDF reference from Calvert Cliffs After years of never recognizing these ODD teeth, I have even found a couple: Do these match the ones in the Jaw... ?

    Dire wolf tooth? Found in FL

    I recently found this partial tooth in Florida and I really think it’s dire wolf. It looks exactly like the upper carnassial dire wolf teeth online. The only measurement i have is that the thickest part of the enamel from top to bottom is 17mm thick, not accounting for wear. Can you guys confirm/deny? Thanks! filtered-3F76D20A-199B-4B93-8957-ACB17287FC39.mp4
  3. If you had the option between going to the BV experience or the BV fossil farm what would you choose or recommend? Thanks!

    help with tooth ID

    broken on both ends and missing backside of tooth, little help?
  5. ThePhysicist

    Sandbar Shark

    From the album: Sharks

    This species of shark is commonly seen in aquariums - you can recognize it by its proportionately large dorsal fin.

    help with vert ID?

  7. Largemouth Bass

    Is this an Auriculatus?

    The seller states that this is a ~13 mm posterior O. auriculatus tooth from Bone Valley. It looks similar to the lower posteriors in this paper, but I would like to get a more educated opinion before adding it to my collection. Unfortunately, these are the highest quality images given.

    Central florida unknown

    Hi there! Recently looking at some fossils I found land hunting in South Venice and this one had me stumped. Granted I'm no expert, I tried to ID it from the web and couldn't come up with anything. It does have one ridge area like some other mammal teeth. Just an odd fossil to me. Thanks!
  9. Hello all, On a bone valley fossil hunting trip, I turned up a fossil I was a bit unsure about. My best guess was a sawfish rostral tooth. Let me know your thoughts and some bonus pics at the end! Here is what I believe to be a porpoise tooth (the other side is a bit busted up) And here is a riker frame of some of my better bone valley shark teeth I found. Thanks for looking!

    First Two Bone Valley Trips

    It's been sometime since I've posted anything. I was busy collecting fluorescent minerals for several years and then last month we moved from NJ to FL, Still getting the house set up but I've managed a couple of trips to the Bone Valley Fossil farm. Yesterday was five complete megs and the top ball from the femur of probably a Mammoth. Here's a few pics. john

    From Bowling Green, FL. Each fossil is about 1 cm across.

    Unknown Bone Valley Vertebra

    My only time out Fossil Hunting in the last 2 months was October 20th.. A great day, very relaxing. The water in the creek was deep and fast, so I did not come up with my usual quantity or quality. That is a Rostral tooth, a Vertebra, and a smattering of small teeth, some colorful. Here is one worth sharing, small and pretty. I imagine micro fossil hunters are used to seeing such treasures. Most just slip thru my screens. What I am attempting to do is ID the Vertebra... It is from a small animal, maybe 50-75 pounds based on size of the Vert. Because of flatness, I think it is likely a caudal vert. From my own knowledge, it is not horse, bison, sloth, gator/croc, not dolphin or manatee. I think I will start by looking at Armadillo tail verts. Possible a member familiar with US Southeast fossil vertebrae will recognize and cut my search short... Thanks for any and all assistance. Jack

    Tooth, barb, bone

    Out yesterday, found some odds and ends for ID... Tooth.... Note the serrations. A Barb or something else... Toe bone... I cleaned it with a water_bleach solution... Glad I did as the texture became clearer.... I have seen a MUCH larger version of this fossil, just hope it also comes a a smaller version...

    2 Tridactyl Horse upper cheek teeth

    Have not been out hunting in too long. Water too high makes everything harder. However, next week I will have 2 relatively minor procedures that will stop my hunting for 3-4 weeks. Under that pressure, went back to a location where I thought I could find waist deep water, based on previous experience. Fast current, but around waist deep. I thought that I might only find small shark and ray teeth, but that also was OK. Just to get out and hunt in the sunshine would be a pleasure. I found the expected shark/ray teeth plus a long equus lower tooth, a couple of nice dermal denticles, chunk of gomph, interesting piece of ray barb, a 12 mm toe bone and 2 small horse upper teeth... One would have been great , but two definitely made it a day to remember. Here they are.. This is Nannippus , and a small one at that... Maybe N. simpsoni or N. morgani. I can not differentiate , but Richard Hulbert can.... I likely can ID the 2nd tooth, but It will take me a while... Interested in the input from the Horse experts on TFF.. This would be middle to late Miocene, similar age to the phosphate mines. As indicated above , I had a great day... came home with a smile.

    Jaw with 1 broken tooth

    Again, a fossil from yesterday.. At 1st I thought Alligator, but now , mostly unsure. The jaw is 57 mm long and 25 mm high.. The tooth piece is 7 mm diameter and 14 mm long. I will look for comments when I wake ...
  16. So I’ve been doing a lot of fossil hunting lately, and as such, went back to the dry dig site yesterday, hoping to get at least one of my current 2 white whales: A complete Meg over 3”, or a rhino, dire wolf, smilodon, or Dugong tooth. Neither of these things happened, but I did walk away with some great stuff, so without further ado: Starting off with Megs as always: 7 complete Megs. The one in the centre I’m convinced is a Chub - it’s got cusps. Small ones, but they’re definitely there. Here are the better frags I found, including one almost complete, white enamel Meg on the right middle. Found a complete and a partial whale tooth - Kogiopsis Floridana I believe - very happy with the complete one cause it actually has the tip. And the partial is gorgeous cause you can see the banding so well. Found a C Hastalis as well: My THIRD lower, left m1/m2 Nannippus Aztecus tooth (You’d think I’d find a tooth from elsewhere in the mouth by now… I have 4 Nannippus teeth and 3 are left m1/m2 ) A piece of tusk and some chunks of sting ray barb: Dolphin Jaw Bone: Some of the nicer teeth - top left is a Sand Tiger with both cusps, bottom right is a Dolphin tooth without the root: And finally, an obscene amount of turtle shell. I actually left a LOT of pieces behind too cause they weren’t textured. Overall not a bad day, but my 3”+ Meg continues to elude me.
  17. Does anyone know what happened to Bone Valley Fossil Farm? My family and I were looking forward to going here, but when I went to book there is no trace of this place except for a Facebook page link that has been pulled down. Thanks.
  18. So I went hunting in Bone Valley yesterday, the same paid dig site I had originally gone to and met @Nimravis at, and came away with some gorgeous finds! To start off with my favorite find - a part of a Gomphothere tooth and a few other fragments: Then of course, as always, some Megs - found 3 complete ones with a bunch of frags, the complete ones are all small, 2”, 1.5”, and 1.2” in slant height: I also found a very complete Three-Toed Horse tooth: I found a whole bunch of sand tiger shark teeth, including, finally, one with a cusp: A bunch of snaggletooth shark teeth, including one that was presumably digested as most of the enamel is gone: A lone C. Hastalis tooth: A (fish?) vertebrae, barracuda tooth, and sting Ray barb pieces: And finally, what I’ve been told is a Crocodilian Gastrolith, though I’m unsure of it myself and will be posting it in the ID page: Overall an awesome trip and I will definitely be going back again!
  19. So went back to the dry dig site today, hoping to find a 3”+ Meg. Did not find one. Did find 3 Megs, all under 2” though. And loooots of whale stuff. Tooth, ear bones, small verts. Also found some great Hemis, some horse teeth (3-toed? Pre-Equus? Not sure). Anyway, here we go: To start off, the Megs and Frags, happy with the complete Megs today, despite being small: Now all the Whale stuff! Tooth, ~3”, which is super cool: 2 ear bones: Allllll the bits of verts: Next up, the massive chunks of turtle shell I found: The horse teeth: Gomphothere teeth fragments: Misc Shark Teeth (+ Ray mouth plate that was multi-layered) I liked a lot, including a perfect, 1.6” Hemipristis Serra: And finally, the rest of the teeth I found: All in all came away with a bunch of fossils I really like, so a very productive day!
  20. I got a box of micro matrix from PaleoCris - Bone Valley Formation from Florida and I am STUNNED by the beautiful colors and preservation! I knew Bone Valley stuff was good...but wow. And he threw in some "extra" fossils of a nice big echinoid and a claw of some thing...maybe extinct armadillo. I still havn't gone through all the matrix, but wanted to show ya'll some of the nice stuff: All are around 1/8 inch - 1/4 inch This crazy Fish tooth plate - Labrodon sp. I think this is Baracuda? I love the little ray teeth Rhynchobatus. Sadly, this one leaped for freedom from my tweezers right after I photographed it. Gone gone. A pretty blue one Rhibobatus sp. Some Crab Claws I hope I find a whole sting ray tail spine. And of course...the SHARK TEETH! THE COLORS! And I am in no way confident in my ID on these teeth, so if you see something ID'd wrong, please let me know. Galeocerdo contortus Carcharhinus plumbeus Negaprion brevirostris Unsure of the ID on this one. If you know it, please enlighten me! Carcharhinus leucas Carcharhinus brachyurus

    Bone Valley Find

    I’m currently at a pay site, collecting Bone Valley fossils. An individual next to me found this bone fragment, can someone identify what it is? It looks familiar, but what it is is not coming to mind right now. @Shellseeker

    Bone Valley Crocodilian Gastrolith?

    So did some fossil hunting yesterday and found what I was told was a Crocodilian Gastrolith. Which while technically just a rock, is still a really cool find. So I wanted to see if anyone else could confirm the ID or not!

    Pleasant surprises

    Out yesterday. Hunting one of the few spots available during the summer rains. It is mostly marine, sharks, rays, etc. Lots more effort for far fewer finds. Finding any bone is unusual, and I keep everything not a rock, and sometime I keep the rocks also.. There is a rock in this photo, but it LOOKED like a bone while hunting! I sort out all the small shark teeth, keeping jewelry grade and 10 of the best unbroken ones. The rest go to my hunting partner, who sells them on online. It is a recognition of all the contributions he makes to my hunting success. There was one additional find at the end of the day that pleased me. Took a photo and gave it to Steve. He is better at a lot of things including cleaning, polishing finds. A couple of almost jewelry grade teeth... think earrings. I think the bone in upper right is turtle, unusual for this location. Then this bone I recognize as marine mammal, in this case Dolphin. Whales, Dugong, Manatee have very similar proximal ends. For any who have insights into dolphin ribs, let me know if you agree. I did not think it was much of a day in terms of finds early, but into the stretch, I closed rapidly. This is one find in the photo that excites me. See if you can spot it before I post a separate Fossil ID thread.
