    Is it a meg or a chub?

    I’m looking into this wonderful 5.59” Cuban tooth, but I’m having a hard time figuring out if it’s a meg or chub. It has cusps, but they’re minimal and not very obvious. Seller says it dates from early to middle Miocene, though that’s not very helpful in identifying this tooth. I’m thinking chub due to the cusps existing, but I’d like to gather more opinions on the matter.

    Moroccan Eocene shark teeth and jaw bone

    I recently purchased some more Moroccan fossils, including several shark teeth...I tried IDing them on my own, here are my guesses (scale is in inches; 1 inch = 2.5 cm), am I close? I don’t have much experience IDing Eocene teeth, so I’m not sure. Thanks!!! 1. Otodus obliquus 2. Cretolamna appendiculata 3. Cretolamna aschersoni 4. Striatolamia macrota 5. Jaekelotodus spp. 6. Brachycarcharias atlasi 7. Tooth I have no idea on (had cusps but they bro
  3. I'm finally getting around to posting pictures of this Moroccan shark tooth, which I believe is either a transitional Otodus obliquus or a transitional Palaeocarcharodon orientalis. My original thought was Otodus but @Al Dente flagged in the mailbox thread a few weeks ago that it might be Palaeocarcharodon instead. Any thoughts on this one? The tooth measures 49 mm on the slant and is 39 mm wide across the root.

    Serrated Otodus tooth from morocco

    Recently bought this Otodus tooth from morocco. The tag said that this is a Otodus sokolovi, but I don’t know what is the difference between auriculatus and sokolovi or maybe thay are the same species? Besides, if we don’t know where the teeth came from, what is the difference between auriculatus and angustidens?
  5. I can't figure out if this tooth is a normal Otodus tooth or if it's something else. I think it looks like megalolamna paradoxodon tooth, but to my knowledge, they aren't found in Morocco. I would appreciate any help or I'd on this tooth. It doesn't have any serrations and it has only two cusps. It's 3,5 cm from root to tipp.

    Monmouth Chubutensis

    Hi all. I wanted to share this chub tooth I found towards the end of 2021. From Monmouth, NJ, I think Kirkwood formation. One of my targeted species for the year and was able to find one in about 20 hrs worth of searching.

    I thought it was a bone…

    I went to my local spot, Henson creek, and decided to check things out. I arrived and found some stingray and sand tiger shark teeth. I stumbled upon what I thought was bone, it totally turned out not to be bone. I am very happy about this find, even though it was the only thing of significance found today it doesn’t matter. It’s so perfect. It will probably be a while before I find another otodus tooth that size again! Here’s the photos: The total length is over 1.5 inches, and would probably be hitting 1.75 if complete. What

    Cusps of mega-toothed shark

    We should all agree that the side cusps of these shark gradually disappeared with evolution, but how did they deform in the process of shrinking and disappearing ? Does the cusps’s tip gradually move closer to the middle crown and fuse together? Just like the two teeth in the picture below, is the brown specimen older than the other?

    Aquia crawl

    Hey guys, I'm back from my trip out at sea. It was a very insightful and unforgettable experience. Learned a lot about the world around, and myself as well. anyways, enough about that, I went out to Douglas point yesterday and although it was a very short day, it was also extremely productive. Which included some pristine sand tigers, a perfect 1 1/2 inch croc, and a killer Otodus. Here’s everything good I found: (Idk why it goes in sideways but there’s the total of everything found). Front (or backside technically) of the best teeth
  10. Got to the beach early this morning and had the place to myself with a great gravel line to search. Got a nice handful of teeth including at 2.23” damaged otodus, a 1.42” otodus, and a 1.14” croc tooth.

    Meg or Chub?

    I bought this 4.8” tooth and it was advertised as being likely a giant chubutensis tooth, but said it was a Megalodon to be on the safe side. Can anyone here positively identify it? This was found in a river outside of Summerville, SC.

    Big Otodus obliquus teeth

    Got a cheap Otodus obliquus teeth with matrix. It’s quite big (7.5cm).
  13. Hey all... I thought I'd put up some pics of my fossil collection - well, the sharp end of it. I have a few other fossils (fish, ammonite etc) but for now, I'll put up my fossil teeth. I started collecting fossils almost by accident a few years ago, I was in a small rock and mineral shop, in a small town 2 hours from home, this shop had a small selection of fossils too and the Otodus teeth they had in stock grabbed my attention, I bought one and my collection has been growing ever since. The Otodus obliquus teeth below were my first and second fossil purchase

    Otodus obliquus.... or not?

    Hey all Last week I bought a bunch of Otodus obliquus teeth for a work mate, he wants them for presents for his grandchildren and knows I like fossils so he got me to source them for him. Typical me, not letting an opportunity go to waste, I ordered extra knowing I'd find something to add to my own collection They are all said to come from Oued Zem, Khouribga Phosphate deposits, Morocco. Out of all of the teeth I got (15), all in the 45mm - 60mm range, they all fit what an O. obliquus tooth looks like, apart from 2 which is why I'm making this thread - I'd rather get others to

    Otodus symphyseal

    From the album: Sharks

    A rare symphyseal from Otodus obliquus. ~ 2.5 cm max. slant height.

    Hubbell Megalodon

    From the album: Sharks

    Hubbell (juvenile) megalodon, likely from the East Coast. I don't understand the hype surrounding megalodon, but this one was cool enough for the collection. It has good preservation, and the tip is spalled-off from feeding.
  17. This new site I’m going to is kind of starting to grow on me! I really love the abundance of well preserved shells and the sharks teeth that come out of here (if I don’t break them) are in superb condition. I arrive at this site, however, with some disappointment. Footprints everywhere, and discarded rocks piled in a pile i know I didn’t leave with a bunch of broken shells. It looks like someone took the liberty of smashing rocks with a hammer and leaving the place a mess for others. Not a good look to be honest I always try to clean my area and make it look better than where I left it. The go
  18. Hi, I just saw these articles, and I wanted to make sure they are real. The vertebrae of Onchosaurus seem correct, but I am concerned about Otodus' teeth, and that of Mosasaur. Mosasaur 2.2 ctms.(Just the tooth ). and Otodus 5 ctms.
  19. Hey all I came across these 3 shark teeth today and I believe they're all in the Odontidae family. Even though they all have cusplets, the size of these teeth rule out juvenile O. megalodon teeth so they must belong to a shark earlier than O. megalodon and the question I have is, what species? I can have a couple of guesses after looking at a lot of different photos of O. angustidens, O. chubutensis, O. auriculatus (I'm doubting it's O. sokolovi) teeth though google, through dealers etc but I'm also a little confused because some I'd think are one species and they're labeled as anot
  20. Hey all Shark teeth confuse me.... it seems the more I know, the less I know! The small rock and fossil shops I visit (when I can get near them - no shops near home) often sell shark teeth labeled Otodus (O. obliquus, these shops usually just give the Family name - Mosasaur, Spinosaur, Otodus etc). This is the only shark tooth I've been commonly exposed to "in the flesh". I've done a bit of digging on the net and now I'm not sure all teeth I have seen (and purchased) are Otodus - which is fine with me, I just like to be accurate. I have one which I was told is Cretalamna, it def

    Otodus obliquus

    From the album: Morroco Fossils

    Otodus obliquus is an ancient predecessor to the megalodon shark. Otodus obliquus lived from the Paleocene to the Eocene time period, roughly 40 to 60 million years ago. Real Otodus teeth in a mix that is à try to look like in the field matrix

    Megatooth Sharks

    From the album: Sketches

    The meg is from the Miocene in Wrightsville, N.Carolina. The angustidens from the Oligocene in S.Carolina. The obliquus from the Eocene in Qued Zem, Khouribga, Morocco.
  23. It's been a long while since I've had the opportunity to go hunting - indeed, trips have been far and few between. But the few I have had have been lucrative. There's been quite a bit of new material, ending up with some new finds (for me, at least.) One of these was a complete ray mouth plate. A couple Otodus jumped into my hands as well, including this perfect one, about an inch. The wildlife was out in full, including a dog that must have been born into the hobby Thanks, FA

    Shark Tooth ID (Otodus Appendiculatus?)

    Hi everyone. This is my first post (the second one actually, after greetings:). I was wondering the correct identification for these two shark tooth. They come from Balegem (Oosterzele, Belgium), I don't have any other information about the period. I bought them on a market oline as "lamna appendiculata" (it should be a synonim for "Otodus Appendiculatus" (Agassiz, 1843) (??)). Size: 2/2.5cm. I'd appreciate a lot your opinions about that. Thanks in advance. gian.
