Hey guys, here's a fossil hunt I did with my Dad. We absolutely crushed it with a fossilized dire wolf tooth, a huge bison vertebra, two extinct Florida camel vertebras, a gorgeous extinct peccary tooth which looked like a pig but more related to horses, some Giant Armadillo armor plates (these animals were the size of small cars!) and a few other things to boot.
Hope you enjoy!

Those are so cool! Even more cool when it is a family affair, and that water looks so enticing. Well done and thanks for taking us along!

Those are some excellent finds.
Really nice video of a fun time on the river. It looks fun and relaxing.

That seems like a great area for fossils.
I remember in the late 90's, Harbor Branch (Ft. Pierce) use to have a summer "symposium" for kids to bring in their finds. There was a youngster there I got to talk to that had an alligator jaw with a point still in it. He found it during the droughts that lowered the water in the St. Johns.

I can tell what those things are after you described them but you'd need to be an expert to pick those out in the water. Keep up the good work! Gary
