    Sorting some Florida finds

    I am mostly anchored to home for the next week, sorting some finds from last month. My process is to pick up almost everything I see, in case it might be a rare fossil (or fossil fragment) that I just do not recognize. I have always thrown back, donated, gifted 80% of what I bring home and that have become critical to keep my "collection" at a level that my spouse will allow. In fact , now I am closer to 95%.... So, with most of the finds already eliminated: There is a few great finds here, that I am able to ID myself. The ones in blue are those I will probably add to my collections.
  2. Fossilsforever


    Hello all, I made two drawings (and edited both of them) of a O. Megalodon (Otodus Megalodon) shark. The first one is a pencil drawing (black-white) on a original white background (made it coloured, blue). The second one is a Megalodon smelling whales. Enjoy! Perhaps other people can post here their Megalodon drawings/paintings. Kind regards, Ruben
  3. My first thought was bison on this tooth but it just looks a little different than the rest of my collection. Possibly camel? North Central Nebraska, miocene. @Harry Pristis length-APL= 42mm width- TRW= 35mm
  4. Some of my recent finds. Four ray stinger pieces, a dozen drum teeth. Four angel shark teeth (just to the left of the vert piece). Unusual for me, two small tiger shark teeth (i think the small part of these teeth must break off often); scanned most of the small teeth I found. Broken cowshark and parasymphyseal sand tiger. And a bunch of sand tiger and grey shark teeth.

    Greens Mill Run crocodile or mosasaur tooth??

    I found this tooth in Greens Mill Run in Greenville, NC. I’m leaning towards croc due to the size of the dental cavity relative to the size of the tooth, but perhaps it is a mosasaur. It has one carina on the anterior side of the tooth, none on the posterior side. Also, if it is croc, is there a way to identify whether it’s Cretaceous or Pliocene? Or if either croc or mosasaur, perhaps genus ID? Thanks!!!

    A Few More Shark Teeth

    I visited my favorite shark tooth site just north of the Lake of Constance again recently and just wanted to show off a few finds. If anyone notices that I've made any mistakes with my ids then please let me know. Araloselachus cuspidatus The next two I would call Carcharodon (Cosmopolotidus) hastalis, although I know that some still lump these under Isurus. Carcharhinus priscus And the next two I've identified as Odontaspis molassica.

    Miocene Bivalve id's

    These fossils were purchased by me from a friend who had received them 30yrs ago. In the box they were in was a paper that read "Miocene, Calvert Cliffs, MD. Though some have argued that they are Florida fossils...I found id's for all but a couple from: "Vokes, H.E., 1957, Miocene fossils of Maryland: Maryland Geological Survey Bulletin 20, 85 p". I was wondering if anyone could id the two left...the single fossil photos? Thanks Greg

    Any Idea?

    Hello everyone I am new here, firstly i hope all of you are doing great. I found this Odontocete brain case fragment , I discovered it in a bunch or rocks that were weathering away and based on the nature of these rocks i am convinced they are Globigerina limestone as such the fossil is probably early to mid Miocene in age. After doing my own research and comparisons I have come to the conclusion that it might be brachydelphid or at least delphinoid what do you guys think? I f you have any idea please tell and why. Also note that the images are not taken in the true lateral or post
  9. Hello! These are the teeth from my favourite miocene finding place. I know only the no.14. for sure, thats a giant salamander (Andrias scheuchzeri) "jaw" or dentaries. If You know the specimen or have a good tip, please help me to ID these teeth. Thank You!

    Fossil texture

    Normally, I am pretty quick to recognize and toss bone fragments. An unusual texture stops the toss. Here are a couple of finds from last week. Fossil #1 Fossil #2

    Unusual leg bone ID help

    Found in North central Nebraska. Miocene. I have a feeling @Harry Pristis and @Shellseeker might be helpful on this one.

  13. I have been in contact with the head of the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Museum for a couple years showing some of my better plant fossils from my area. Miocene age, Beluga Formation, This last week I had a Masters Degree student come and visit my collection and my local site. She is going to do her thesis on the local miocene flora. There are papers on plants presumed to be older and younger but none from this section of the formation. I donated approximately 100 lbs of specimens to the University of Alaska Fairbanks Museum of the North to be used by her then pu

    Another large thick mammal bone

    I found this one in the same area of the one I just posted. I wonder if it is from the same critter? @ParkerPaleo
  15. I’ve done quite a bit of looking online but can’t seem to get an ID on this one. It almost has to be either mammoth,mastodon or rhino but I’m not sure which bone it is. Found in North Central Nebraska. Miocene
  16. I have missed fossil hunting most of the last month with rains making the rivers and creeks too deep, travel north and other commitments. So today , I went out with frequent hunting companion, Steve. Steve sells many of his better fossils, but he knows that I focus on small horses and marine mammal. When he finds one of those, he may give it to me, and I decided how much it is worth. I had a very good day, but Steve had a better one. and he gave me this 3+ inch whale tooth. At 1st I thought it had an enamel tip, which would have been really surprising. So, cementum fl

    †Argyropelecus bullockii DAVID, 1943

    Taxonomy according to fossilworks.org. Description from DAVID 1943, p. 11: “Length of head 37,5% to 41%, depth of head 43,8% to 58.8%, depth of body 50% to 63.8% of length of body. Vertebrae 38; 2 small abdominal spines; 12 abdominal lanterns; 3 + ? postabdominal lanterns. Supraneurals project above body for a distance equal to four-fifths of base of dorsal fin. D. =9; A. = 12.” Line drawing from DAVID 1943, p. 60: Photo of a recent Atlantic silver hatchetfish ( Argyropelecus aculeatus) from Wikipedia by SEFSC Pascagoula Laboratory; Collection of Brandi Noble, NOAA/NMFS/SE
  18. Lots of competition in the summer, and while it's good to see kids out hunting, they have destroyed a few of my favorite spots, and my shark teeth numbers have dropped. But they seem oblivious to everything but shark teeth. Had an interesting trip lately, some teeth the kids missed, but mostly other stuff. Numbers down, but diversity up! (Size is always an issue there). . Top left: cowshark teeth pieces and one with a huge oblique root (but only one spike?) top, center and right, skate denticles, two verts, some teeth and bryozoans(?) more teeth, on right, three ang
  19. I recently received approx. 2 dozen fossils and was told that they were all from Miocene of Calvert Cliffs, MD. But, have found some Id's from Plistoecen/Pliocene Florida as well. So must have gotten mixed up some where along the way. I've found all but these...but not sure of there origin or age. I'm looking to find identifications. I will get measurements of them asap. I tried numbering...I got the first one...but, couldn't figure out how to do the rest. If anyone can help...I would really appreciate it. Greg

    Rooted Dolphin/Cetacean Tooth?

    Hello everyone I found this small tooth yesterday diving in a SE US river spot that has only produced Miocene era materials so far: Shark Teeth-Megalodon, Carcharadon Hastalis (no Carcharadon Carcharias yet), Hemipristis Serra, etc.) and plenty of whale bone, verts, ear bones and teeth. I think this is a small dolphin tooth but I haven't seen one with a root that is pretty much perpendicular to the tooth like this. I've also attached a couple pics of the other stuff found yesterday for reference. Thanks for looking. Let me know if there is another angle that may help

    Fish Tooth? Or Something else?

    Found this while fossil hunting on the Potomac River (mostly miocene marine fauna) in Westmoreland County, Virginia. When I first picked it up I thought it was just a shark tooth with the root missing. When I got home and cleaned up my finds I realized it wasn't shark. It is about 5/8" long, tear drop shape in section, and has striations like a croc tooth, but since it is flat I don't think it is croc. Maybe some type of fish? Any thoughts?
