    I don't have all that many teeth like a lot of collectors here in this Forum, but I have found, purchased or traded for a few fishy things along the way.
    Update New Year's 2019: The collection has been growing thanks to trades, purchases and my own field finds.

    Some of my finds from the lower Jurassic of Holzmaden.
    They were mostly found in the quarry Kromer near Ohmden ( http://www.schieferbruch-kromer.de/ ).
    I have found different types of ammonites and belemnites but recently I focused more on vertebrate material.
    Vertebrates are not very common but its not impossible to find teeth and bones. 
    I found most of the teeth in the "Schlacke", a layer with many fish parts. 
    The most common teeth are teeth from Steneosaurus bollensis (crocodile). You can also find Ichthyosaur and Plesiosaur teeth.

    I have been collecting megalodon shark teeth ever since being awe-inspired by the C. megalodon dentition displayed at the National Museum in Baltimore. Since I live far away from every megalodon tooth to be found personally I have been collecting by purchase. The good side, I could be very picky with the purchases and try to go only after the teeth that met the highest standards in terms of esthetical value that I set myself. The bad side, I am still lacking the thrill to go out and hunt for them myself and find one. I would be glad even for a broken one as long as it would be found personally. One day I will take my chances and really go out and try. But so far there have been no feasible opportunities. I know that this is gonna change some day. Until then, I will share with you the ones I gathered over the past 10 years of mailbox collecting...

  6. The Mollusca of the Banjaard

    This is an inventory of all the different bivalve and gastropod species I found on the beach of the Banjaard, in Zeeland (Netherlands). This beach is very rich in fossil seashells, especially in Eemian-aged ones (120'000 years old). But there are also quite a handful of shells from other layers (late Pleistocene, Pliocene, sometimes up to the Eocene) that are found here, creating a great diversity of finds. 
     
    I'm trying to represent ALL the species I found there, which is why I also included pictures of broken specimens (if I don't have any complete specimens yet). If at some point I find a complete specimen of a species that I at first only had an incomplete one of, I will update the album by adding the more complete specimen. The goal of this album is to first of all show off the Banjaard's great array of shell species, but also to serve as an ID guide for people that have found their own fossil shells on the Banjaard or other beaches of Zeeland. 
     
    When googling some of the species, you might notice that some of them "need updating" as they have been moved to a new genus. The truth is, paleontologists love to constantly move species around. This is why I use the names of one source for the species: the book "De fossiele schelpen van de Nederlandse Kust" by P. W. Moerdijk, A. W. Janssen, et al. , which is imo the most relevant source for fossil shells of the Dutch coast. I always include the WoRMS (World Register of Marine Species) synonym in the description of each photo if it's different to the name I use. You may use whatever names you like, it's all a matter of opinion in the end. 
     
    I include two extra lines of info in the comments:
    Status:  how the species is nowadays (extinct, locally extinct, or still locally alive) (--> when 'still locally alive', take into account that if your shell is of that species it could be modern, so look closely!) Fossil occurence:  how common the fossil specimens are (from most to least) (take in mind that this is based on my experience , so it is kinda biast!): Abundant: the species is very common, it's almost impossible to go on the Banjaard without seeing plenty Common: the species is commonly found, you should be able to find a handful with every hunt Rather common: the species can be found a couple times per hunt on average Uncommon: the species occurs from time to time Rare: the species rarely occurs In some cases I might mention the occurence of fragments and complete specimens separately, when relevant  
    If you have any questions regarding a shell I've shown, don't hesitate to send me a PM or to post a comment on the photo. If you are unsure about the ID of a shell you found or need confirmation, either send me a PM or make a topic under the Fossil ID section and tag me like this: @Max-fossils (I recommend the latter ). 
     
    I hope this album will be useful, or at least interesting for you all to visit!

    The Calvert Group of formations extends from Delaware down to Virginia. These fossils were found at the base of cliffs containing the Choptank, St Mary's and Eastover Formations. Everything was either collected off of the beach or from talus piles. Formations are noted where the fossils depicted are themselves index fossils or else index fossils were found in the same chunk of matrix in the talus pile.

    A very small part of my collection is comprised of some gift and some purchased fossils. 

    I've never paid more than $35.00 for a fossil.  (Not including shipping)  
    Yep. I'm a cheapskate.
