  1. a little STH ID help needed

    As we work on our new displays I have found a few shark teeth that I need to verify an ID for. These are all from STH. First up is one I am fairly certain is Isurus desori. A little over .5”
  2. Had the beach to myself yesterday and had a great morning! Two and a half hour of all surface finds, no sifting. One of the best crocs I’ve seen from Douglas definitely made my week!
  3. Douglas Point, MD

    Went to Douglas Point, MD today with the goal of getting some angel shark teeth. I found 7 for my collection.
  4. Good day out on the bay, I kayaked down the cliffs in the morning and pulled in to do some surface collecting. I wasn’t finding many large shark teeth but I found my most amount of dolphin teeth in a day!
  5. Shark teeth

    These two teeth are from Purse Park, MD. What are these two? The cusp on the first one is interesting.
  6. Big Brook

    I was fortunate enough to follow up my Potomac River trip with a Big Brook trip yesterday. I had to see a client in the morning that is a couple of miles from Big Brook. So I decided to swing by and jump in the creek. For the first time this winter there was someone else hunting while I was there. I was fortunate enough to run into another TFF member (brad hinkelman) in the creek. Back to back days in different states running into different TFF members. What the chances... I guess pretty good. Anyway, enjoy the pictures. is this a drum fish tooth? If this is it is my first! not sure if the top two or bottom piece is anything.
  7. First hunt at Potomac River

    Went on my first hunt at the Potomac River on Wednesday. It was great weather and had a blast. It was high tide but was able to get a productive 2.5 hours in before I headed back to NJ. I was fortunate enough to meet another TFF member in the parking lot Bjohn170. Still have to go through and ID everything but enjoy the pics.
  8. Hello All! As many of you are aware, Martin Marietta does quarterly 'open days' at their quarry in Castle Hayne, NC (Near Wilmington). This quarter the date is March 6th and I was lucky enough to snag the last two spots on this outing (some of their quarries have a cap on the number of visitors- others do not). I am quite excited as I have driven past this site for most of my life and never really given it much thought. I will, of course, post my finds and a report for the day after the fact, but I wanted to see if any other TFF members are signed up to be there. If so, I would love to say hello. From what I have read on here, it seems that the Castle Hayne Quarry will have both Paleogene (Castle Hayne Formation) and some Cretaceous (Island Creek Member and Rocky Point Member) fossils, depending on the current spoil piles on site. I have ordered the Cretaceous and Paleogene Field Guide from the NC Fossil Club (having only previously picked up the Neogene and Quaternary Guide) and plan on familiarizing myself with some of the non-tooth fossils that I should be on the look out for. I have seen posts on here with several beautiful nautiloids, so I would love to snag one of those. Otherwise though, I'm not sure what to expect. I would love to find a stray mammal tooth (any mammal) or a non-shark tooth generally (not that I'm expecting loads of shark teeth- from what I understand, shells are the primary fossils found on site), but otherwise I am not sure what to keep an eye out for. Any advice from those of you who have hunted this quarry (or formation) more extensively? I would love to know a little bit more about what I will be seeing. Thanks in advance! -Philip
  9. Found some really nice teeth on the Maryland side of the Potomac River. A lot of really nice sand tiger teeth, a nice Otodus, and two really pretty small croc teeth, and two partial croc teeth
  10. Great hunt today, left with a hand full of nice teeth, the best being my Chub and my dolphin teeth
  11. Underwater Fossil Hunt

    Wish I was there https://science.howstuffworks.com/environmental/earth/geology/underwater-fossil-hunting.htm
  12. Big Brook

    Hope everyone’s week is going well. Was fortunate enough yesterday to go to Big Brook....again. I think this trip gave me the biggest variety of findings since I have been going to there and the most challenging to ID. (20+ times since August). Yes I have the bug. Anyway, enjoy the pictures and any feedback would be greatly appreciated. row 1-3 Squalicorax Kaupi row 4 I actually think the one on the right is Squalicorax Pristidontus top row Ischyrhiza Mira ( not 100% on the last one bottom row Enchidus This exactly an inch long. I think it might be a fish tooth. Xiohactinus? row 1-2 Archeolamna Kopingensis row 3 Cretolamna Appendiculata row 4 Protolamna Borodini (if I ID this right, this is my first one. If I did, it’s because of @the jersey devil website) The first tooth is one of the nicest teeth I found there. Almost feel like it doesn’t belong there. I going to guess Scapanorhynchus Texanus because I have never seen any other species that large. The two on the right are Carcharias Samhammeeri. I initially thought the bottom left was as well but going with Paranomotodon Angustidens because if the root. all Scapamorhynchus Texans bottom right has something interesting in it upper right possible coral? Have no experience with that. half of larger very and small vert some type of modern bone? crab claws bottom right I believe is half of a Anomoeodus tooth. Thanks for taking the time to look at my pictures and all my rambling. Feel free to correct me with any of my IDs. Much appreciated.
  13. Matoaka Beach

    Hi. In addition to going to Big Brook this week I was fortunate to get to Matoaka beach for the first time. Did not do as well but it was still had a blast. Hunted with @Searcher78 who always seems to find the nicest tiger shark teeth. I did find my first stingray barb though. Enjoy the pics.
  14. Big Brook

    Hi. Took my bi-weekly trip to Big Brook this week. Had the whole place to myself again. It was not to cold. Enjoy the the pics. Any feedback is always greatly appreciated Mark Scapanorhynchus Texanus Squalicorax Kaupi top row- Archaeolamna kopingensis middle- Carcharias Samhammeri Bottom row- sawfish Ischyrhiza Mira Cretolamna Appendiculata I’m assuming modern bone because I’m not that lucky this pic is the bottom of the above picture bottom right. Not sure if it is anything Found a black m&m. Oh the humor. I don’t think everything below are concretions but just want to make sure before I toss it.
  15. Matoaka Cabins, Maryland

    Searched matoaka beach today. Lots of shells, but I don’t collect them. Not as much luck as Brownies, but not bad. I believe that I got my first fish tooth.
  16. Sand shark teeth?

    Found at Abbey wood. Sand shark?
  17. Bayfront Park 01/25/20

    Me and a friend spent a couple hour searching and a little sifting and left with over 100 teeth! Here are the best from the trip, a couple of makos, a hand full of nice tigers, two bronze whaler?, two cow sharks, and a baby posterior megalodon tooth!
  18. Hello, I have been doing some fossil hunting at Bay Front Park (Chesapeake Beach) -Brownies- in Maryland USA and have been trying to group and identify some of the teeth I found. I believe these teeth are Miocene and my guesses are as follows- what do you think? Thanks Row 1: Physogaleus contortus Row 2: Galeocerdo aduncus Row 3: Hemipristis serra
  19. Coloradan shark tooth id

    Greetings, I am an amateur fossil collector and rock hound and I don’t know too much about fossil species or how to identify them... My dad recently gave me some of his shark teeth he found in the 90s at his coworkers ranch. He never bothered to identify them so I’m hoping to get some help with that, thank you! He showed me the area on a map and told me about the rock types and I’ve come to the conclusion that they were found somewhere in between the Carlisle shale and the Niobrara Formation, though I could be mistaken. The area he found them at is southeast of Colorado Springs on private land. I will post pictures below, help of any kind is appreciated!
  20. Shark Teeth Hunting at the Museum

    Some of us will do anything to sit and sift for shark teeth, ray teeth and fossils. Temp was good today 1-20-2020 so I headed to Mulberry Phosphate Museum. Some of us are older and not in the best of health so we go where we can to enjoy the hunt! Its a great place to meet families with kids and talk about hunting and more. I had just mentioned to one of the Mothers how great it would be if the Phosphate Mine would bring some larger teeth and such and mix in with the small rocks, reason is the rocks and all through a crusher and are all small so many shark teeth are very small and others are broken as you see in my finds today. An older Gentleman walked up by the name of James and he had with him a bag or large and small shark teeth, come to find out, he use to work for the mines. He comes to the rock pile and hides some larger ones for the people to find. Today he gave me and 2 of the young boys some great ones! They are not in the picture. Something to think about, if anyone has places disabled people can go and hunt it would be a great add on to this site. So many of us still enjoy the hunt but are not able to do a lot of walking and bending. Just a thought. Blessings when you hunt! Deb
  21. A Florida Trip

    Hi all! I am planning on taking my 3rd fossil collecting trip to Florida next week. I had an amazing time in previous trips and am planning one that will be a bit longer! I plan on collecting in Gainesville at Hogtown Creek (my first time) and the Peace River, where I will be kayaking and camping a good stretch of it over the course of 2 or 3 days. I have my own gear and kayak, but will reach out to canoe outpost for their services in the drop off up river. It is 5 degrees in Chicago today and i am excitedly spending my week over-planning the trip. I have a few questions I’d love some feedback on from this who are more familiar with the area. For 2-3 days where would you recommend to launch the kayak at on the Peace River? And are camp spots easy to find along the way? I’ve floated between the Gardner and Brownsville boat ramps before, but looking to extend that type of trip, i really enjoyed it. What other areas should I look to collect around Gainesville? Are there any other rivers I should look into? My timeline is flexible I’ve read a bit into the Suwannee River, is that worth a stop? And any advice on prospecting or collecting there? Also, where is your top-secret spot where I can find the mammoth teeth and 5’’+ megs? (Feel free to pm this info ) If anyone is interested in joining me (tentatively Jan 25-29), I would love to connect and collect together! Below are pics where I camped at a couple years back (Brownsville) and some of my finds in the area.
  22. I have been slacking in my posts the past couple of trips, so I figured I would catch up. First up are carboniferous plant fossils from McIntyre Mountain, PA:
  23. Brownies Beach 1-15

    Went to Brownies for the first time Wednesday. Met up with @searcher78 and had a good time looking stuff. It is completely different then what we have in Jersey. The cliffs are really amazing. Enjoy the pics. Appreciate any feedback on the pics. Thanks as always. what could have been a nice Mako my first hemis ever! front and back of what I think is a piece of cow shark?
  24. It was a nice day for shark tooth hunting with another TFF member. I was hoping for larger teeth, but it was mostly small teeth.
