    Some Things I've Found

    Here's some fossils I've found in the past year. I haven't been into this for very long, so my collection isn't half of what you guys' collections are.. I'm more of a vertebrate fossil collector than an invertebrae collector, but I still enjoy it all..

    I live in North Central Florida and hunt the rivers and creeks for the vertebrate fossils and sharks teeth.. My better echinoids come from a sinkhole on private land that I have access to.

    I've posted a couple of these before, but a bunch I haven't. Oh, and any of you guys that're interested in fossils, click my personal website.

    The one on the left was found by my brother-in-law about 10 feet from where the two other items were found... Two of the pieces on the right fit together, and the other seems to be from another tooth of the same animal.. This was all found in 2 trips.
