  1. 30 years ago I was in 5th grade and used to hang out nearly every summer day at the back of our property in Van Buren County, field was nearly 60 acres. We would build forts and play in the creek that came off of the Paw Paw River. One day while we were in this deep depression in the ground that the creek went through we found a small black shark tooth. That summer we dug and dug and were able to find about 50 teeth. This week being Spring Break I told my small children maybe we should go look for shark teeth and told them what I did as a young lad. We went back to the old spot I remembered fi

    Shark tooth ID

    Hello! Help please with ID. Squatina or some Orectolobid species? Length - 4,5 mm. Age - Cretaceous - Miocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  3. This riker mount displays the best shark teeth that I collected on 3 hunts sifting at Douglas Point beach, Charles County, Maryland. This is the Paleocene Aquia Formation. Bottom row contains several Odotus teeth. There are many goblin shark Anomotodon and sand tiger shark Carcharias. Also appears to be one pygmy white shark Paleocarcharodon in lower left corner.

    Possible Teeth From Lake Michigan

    Found this while rock hounding this morning near Warren Dunes State Park in southwest Michigan. I almost overlooked as it wasn't a very interesting color, but the shape made me take a second look. To me it looks like a set of a few teeth with one mostly intact. I thought it was just a piece of coral until I saw the separation where the "tooth" line would be. Anyway, thought I would post it here to the experts, as I have no idea what I have. Thanks!

    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
  9. With the nicer weather last week, I was able to make two brief trips to kick of the year. There still ended up being a lot of snow on the ground, but it was manageable. My first trip was to one of my favorite sites, a roadcut in the Pennsylvanian LaSalle Limestone in Illinois. Lots of the usual stuff was found, but the two trip makers were a small Peripristis shark tooth and a Linoproductus mass mortality plate. Here's the tooth. I think it will clean up nicely. And here are the Linoproductus. There's around 50 individuals present, and they are all quite small com
  10. Can someone please give me a few scanned pages from Capetta 1987 book ("Handbook on paleoichthyology: chondrichthyes II: Mesozoic & Cenozoic Elasmobranchii" Volume 3E Teeth). I am in India at present and desperately in need of the book basically for Hybodont dentition (Mesozoic) mostly Asteracanthus (strophodus) sp, Hybodus, planohybodus, spenodus, meristodonoides and edaphodon sp. the book is not available anywhere; not even in library. Very expensive, can't buy from abroad. Please help me guys, atleast you may have access to some good library having the book.
  11. Stopped by a new home construction site, a tad NE of DFW airport, Eagle Ford Kef, so far just levelled with road cuts. Stumbled upon this shark tooth and I lack the experience to ID it. Next up the rock which is what I think is fish coprolite, it weighs nothing, doesn't look like any shark coprolite I've seen, and there were no other rocks that looked even close. Lastly, and I might be way off, I'm pretty sure is shark related, my first impression was it looked like a puddle of barf. These were just the biggest peices the rest was shattered. I know sharks vomit so that was just a thought , i

    Fossil Tooth (some sort of shark?)

    Not too long ago I got some sort of tooth from a seller at a show. She inherited it from a family member (her mother, if memory serves) and believed it to be a megalodon tooth, but she doesn't specialize in fossils in the slightest, and it doesn't 100% look like the megalodon teeth I've seen before, plus I don't think she did extensive research because if it is indeed a megalodon tooth then I think I bought it for quite the steal. I've bought from her before, and I trust that she's not being maliciously dishonest, but I definitely want a more expert opinion. I'm certainly new to this realm and
  13. Good evening all and thanks again for everyone's help and patience with my finds....to that end, here's another one. Stark shale between Winterset and Bethany Falls limestone Pennsylvanian. I'm guessing a fish scale or shark denticle (it appears to be inversely ridged or elevated in deeper layers). I would still like to clean it a little better (the brown-filled divit) but wanted some thoughts prior-it will help me decide how to clean it. Thanks all!! Bone
  14. I finally got some microfossil slides and I got some additional Devonian matrix from New York. I decided to go back to the Genundewa Limestone matrix primarily because I failed to find shark related matrix from other locations that are of the same age. Each of the three searches in this matrix has produced different results which make it fun to search. This search was a lot of Phoebodus teeth and some were close to 75% complete. Easily the best Phoebodus teeth I’ve found in this formation yet. I found a fair amount of Omalodus teeth and some nice ones. I also found two incomplete
  15. I've been looking around for a fossilized great white shark tooth for some time now and it seems like there just aren't many to choose from. The price also seems crazy for them. Are they more desirable than other fossilized shark teeth? It seems like I can get a small Meg for the cost of a Great White. My aunt has been wanting one, but I'm more confused on the price and availability of them. Are they more rare than Megs? Or are they just more desired? I don't want to get a modern one because of the way sharks are hunted. Does anyone know of why the prices and availability are they way they are

    Exotic Megs Set Complete

    With the addition of Italy, I'm calling my exotic Megs set complete! There are some really rare ones like Japan and Germany missing, so while I'll keep an eye out for localities I don't yet have, this set is essentially complete after a year of acquiring teeth from around the world and I'm very happy with it! There were some here that were acquired from members, and others yet that members found for me. I thank everyone who contributed in one way or another!

    Megalodon Tooth?

    Can anyone help us identify this tooth that we found near Bakersfield? We are hoping it's a baby megalodon tooth. Our other thought is that it might be a snaggletooth shark. Thanks for your help.
  18. Bought this otodus. But i know there are restorations on the roots but i wonder if its fake pieces or not? The shop owners are very nice and Most of the time in expos they have the best stuff to Buy. I just wanted to know if it was a real one

    Tiny tooth from the Cotswolds, UK

    Hi all! Most of you will know me as an invertebrate person, but, recently, I found something that may change my view! I was splitting some Jurassic Cotswold limestone, and I found a tooth. A tiny tiny tooth, which I believe to be a shark(?). In other chunks of the matrix, I found scales, and other hints to vertebrate life. It heavily fluoresces under UV light, and has these gorgeous lines along the flat crown. To the bottom right of the tooth, there is a partial mold of a brachiopod, which is pretty cool! Ancholme Group, Callovian - Oxfordian (166.1 - 157.3 mya). As a sister questio

    Atypical Snaggletooth Shark Tooth

    Unusual Shark tooth. Inland, Venice, FL. Pleistocene material is common. Heavy serrations both sides. Bulbous protrusion. Shaped like a lower tooth but serrations on both sides. Tooth is 31mm long and 20mm wide. Is this an odd shaped Hemi upper or from a different species. -Regards, Michael

    Monster Texas Cretodus

    Got out to my favorite spot for an hour before dark last night. Started to walk down a small slope and saw it. I swear I looked back and away three times not believing what I was seeing. I have found a few monsters in this creek including a few over the two inch mark but could instantly see this one is crazy special. This is by far the largest Cretodus I have ever seen. Not only does it break 2.5 inches but if there were a record for weight, this may be the top. Thought my plesiosaur vert I found in January was my find of the year, think this may have just moved into first place.
  23. Since Thanksgiving I'd only been out collecting once. Snow and cold, car repair, work, and other personal matters effectively kept me out of the field. Finally, yesterday I was able to get back out again. I wasn't waiting for ideal conditions and it was COLD!!!!! Temperature only reached 38 degrees and there was little sun for warmth. Winter collecting for me is usually the Cretaceous brooks of Central New Jersey, two hours south of where I live in New York City's northern burbs. Most of the time I go with frankh8147, a great companion, but unfortunately not free that day. He was out collectin
