  1. Following up on the artificial tooth set I recently constructed for the Paleocene sand tiger shark Striatolamia striata, I decided to see if I could put one together for the Miocene snaggletooth, Hemipristis serra, using teeth I've collected along the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland. I haven't found a great resource for an H. serra dentition, but I consulted a few different sources to get a sense for the arrangement, including Fossilguy.com, J-elasmo (which has a dentition for the extant H. elongata), and various TFF threads. The resulting tooth set is below. While I've fou
  2. I've been scarce around the forum lately and equally scarce on the river this season. I just haven't had as much time as I would like, but the wife and I finally got out again yesterday for just the second time this season. Headed out to Gardner bright and early and hit got to the ramp about 9am. Hardly anyone was there - when you pull up and see only one vehicle besides your own, then it's going to be a quiet peaceful day on the river. The weather was (is) gorgeous. High around 80, low humidity, lots of sun, and a nice breeze. You cannot ask for better river weather. We got the k

    what kind of tooth?

    Not sure what this is? I find a lot of what could be teeth, but this is relatively well preserved, much enamel and a striking cross banding (growth rings??) It is hollow on the root end. Unusual for me, but probably common in other areas, so hoping for a quick ID.
  4. Cabin fever made me stupidly ignore the weatherman (another institution I no longer trust) and head out into the 100% chance of rain and cold. Tried to avoid getting wet, as it WAS cold. Tried a very old spot, and was surprised at the results (the beach where I normally hunt has lost all its sand (?) and I've found no teeth their my last three trips). No rain, Birds were uproariously singing, Spring on the way! The creek was high and icy, saw no aquatic life. Anyway, found a bunch, showing the most interesting. Although big makos are nice (and I like the piebald one better though the 2" b

    North Florida Fun!

    My wife and I returned from a great trip to north Florida about a week and a half ago, but I finally have time to post a trip report now that our Easter visitors (our kids) have left and headed back to their homes. Fair warning, if you are looking for some great tale of finds on the Peace River, this is not the post for you! Probably one of the few posts on the Forum from a trip to Florida that does NOT include the Peace –. This was not solely a fossil trip, but rather a sight-seeing trip with some fossils stops included, I try to include as many stops as possible but it is always a delica

  10. Hello fellow fossil hunters. Below is a photo of the array of fossils I found. Each fossil is labelled with a number and it would be awesome if I could get each one identified. I thought ahead and took the photo on grid paper with each square being 5mm. Item 1 is just some quartz crystal I picked up, item 4 is a piece of some unidentifiable shell and the rest are legit fossils. I am a rooky and an amateur so please let me know if I get anything wrong or if I need to add any more detail. Location: Batesford Limestone quarry, Geelong, Victoria, Australia. Geology: Sometime betw
  11. Hello all, Was hoping for some help identifying some recent finds from the Charlie Creek in the Peace River of Florida. I'm still a novice with ID'ing so I was hoping for some guidance as to where I I went right and wrong. I believe they are, in order: a worn cetacean tooth, turtle nuchal scute, a fragment of stingray barb. The last set I am unsure of. Perhaps some bird clavicles? Thanks for any help you can give, Al

    Diplocynodon sp.

    Prepared with transfer method; the preserved skull length is about 15 cm. Taxonomy according to GBIF. Two Diplocynodon species are known from the Miocene so far: Diplocynodon ratelii Pomel, 1847 (type species) from the early Miocene of France and Diplocynodon ungeri (Prangner, 1845), from the middle Miocene of Austria and France. According to a communication from M. Gross, this is probably Diplocynodon ungeri. Diagnosis for Diplocynodon (Martin & Gross, 2011): “enlarged fourth and fifth maxillary alveoli of roughly identical diameter; confluent third and fourth dentary alveo

    Fossil ID Matoaka trip 2

    Hi Again! for Easter this year I decided to go to the Calvert cliffs for some Easter egg fossil hunting. it was a lovely day out got to talk with some nice folks. I wanted to share some of my finds and my IDs of them to check if I got them right before I put labels on them in my collection. 1) Stingray teeth, most likely eagle ray, although the grayish one looks to me like a duck billed ray. 2) Mako Shark Isurus hastalis upper 3) Hemipristis Serra upper 4) Extinct tiger shark Physogaleus contortus 5) Extinct tiger shark Galeocerdo (I think the one

    Stratford hall mini megalodon

    For the past few days I’ve had very little sleep. I thought that I had messed up sleeping way past the low tide time, but in hindsight that Meg was gonna be mines anyways so it really didn’t matter. It’s been a while since I’ve collected some good material, It’s been a bit of a hit and miss so far but I think my luck is finally starting to turn over. I’ve been going to this Paleocene spot a lot lately so I figure it would be nice to change thing up a bit. Anyways, from the title you guys can probably infer that I’ve found my first Meg of 2021 which I’m pretty happy about because I found none l
  15. Hi guys I won some matrix from a forum auction, thanks @Monica for putting it up so I’ve searched about half of it and this is what I’ve found so far i need to do research on the species found in the creek but I have grouped them vaguely into families 1. Shells, I won’t bother identifying these 2. Fish jaws 3. the best quality ray bars, myliobatis sp. I think 4. Various carcharinus species 5. Various negaprion species 6. Phyllodus species 7. daysatis sp.

    What on earth could this be???

    I visited my favorite shark tooth site today and came up with a couple of nice ones. But that's not the reason why I'm posting this time. This item here came out of exactly the same layer where I find most of my good shark teeth, but I have absolutely no idea what it is . It's from the Miocene Burdigalian exposure in the Lake of Constance area which I've been visiting for a few years, but I've never found anything like it here or anywhere else for that matter. I've not only found shark and ray teeth, bivalves and bryozoans here, but also the occasional rare land mammal tooth, so the layer was

    Maryland Miocene Shells

    I collected these micro shells during a recent trip to the Middle Miocene Choptank Formation near Matoaka Beach Cabins. I have consulted a couple publications and yet I am a bit stumped on these last nine fossils. Any help further narrowing these down would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much! #1- Calliostoma sp. but it doesn't seem to fit any in the publications #2- Drillia? #3- Busycon? #4 #5- Parvilucina crenulata? #6- Caryocorbula cuneata? #7
  19. Haven't posted in awhile but the other day I got out for a little while. I'm wondering how rare it would be to find a Blue Marlin Tail bone in Central Va. I didn't snap a shot of it yet because I was thinking it was just a rock like most of the stuff I find. But after looking around today I found something that looks like it and it was either a Bonito or Blue Marlin tail piece. I be back later and will post a pic. Thanks!!

    Lucky Chubutensis

    I was hunting a site on the Potomac looking for some Eocene and Miocene fossils yesterday. When I got to the site I found this gorgeous snake vertebrae about 15 minutes into my trip, so I knew it was going to be a good day. After that it was slow collecting for the next few hours, I was only picking up a tooth every once in a while despite the incredible conditions. But then, 10 minutes before I was about to leave I stumbled upon my best chubutensis yet at about 2 3/4 in. (or 7 cm) rolling around in the surf. One that I have been dreaming about ever since a starting collecting two years

    Illusionella tsurevica BAYKINA, 2012

    The transcription of the Russian terms and names is often ambiguous. In the literature the locality and the formation is called both Tsurevskii or Tsurevskiy. The Russian spelling is Цуревский. Diagnosis for Illusionella (after Baykina 2012, p. 304): "Skull narrow; bulla prootica 2– 2.5 times as large as bulla pterotica; frontals smooth; maxilla saber-shaped, with distinctly convex lower margin, terminating short of reaching vertical through orbital center; posterior supramaxilla in shape of irregular parallelogram; hypomaxilla absent; lower jaw projecting considerably anterior to upper j

    Two highly polished, end cut Stromatolite agate achats from the Mátra mountains, Gyöngyöstarján, Hungary from the Miocene, 20 million years ago that I recently purchased. These are the first Stromatolite fossils that I’ve added to my fossil collection. I’m posting a few pictures to show the incredible colors in these pieces. End Cut (1) ( 543grams 103mm by 102mm by 35mm) End Cut 2 (166grams 75mm by 45mm by 45mm)

    Maybe a jaw section

    I was hunting a month or so back at a site that has some pre_Equus horse teeth, and a very few of the fossil have a light tan coloration. Sometimes the surrounding rock has a similar color. and then this 2.3 inch find: Originally, I thought it was concretion, but have changed my mind. Let me provide some more photos and encourage your input and insights.

    Mailbox Whale Jaw

    Last couple of days, I have been searching the internet, for Hipparion horse teeth, Beaver Molars, and small whale teeth driven by TFF threads to answer questions in my mind or help to identify a fossil. I was doing a google search for "Whale tooth Florida jaw" and triggered this fossil, supposedly found in the Miocene of South Carolina !!!! That is close to Florida so we might have the same fossil whales here !!! and @Boesse might help me to identify it. The final aspect is that it was not all that pricey, and since I only have 2 pieces of toothed whale jaw in my collection,
