  1. Hi, I recently found these set of fossils in Big Brook (river) in New Jersey. I would like to get them identified as I am not skilled enough in the field to identify them myself. The fossils were found in a shallow river bed in gravel areas. There are shells, a shark tooth, and other items. I would love to gain some knowledge on the topic. Thank you
  2. Great day in big brook

    Great day in big brook from 7am to 12 noon. Whole bunch of shark teeth including the biggest one I’ve found yet; 1.25 inch goblin plus a lot of John Snow teeth. A couple of pycnodont and a couple of cow nosed rays. One small enchodus and a couple of TBDs. Did also find one tick when I got home so be aware
  3. Partial tooth

    Hi everyone, Can you ID this for me it’s hollow on the inside. I’m guessing meg or gw.
  4. Lee Creek finds for ID

    I found these fossils in matrix from the Aurora spoil pile. What kind of shark teeth are these two specimens, please. Can the coral be ID'd? Thanks for looking.
  5. First Big Brook trip

    it was my daughter and i first trip here and second trip ever and had a great time we have one tooth we cant I identify and would love help. She is so excited about it,it was a great find
  6. Small shark teeth

    Some tiny teeth from Douglas Point, Maryland today.
  7. Hi everyone, In the spirit of scratching my itch to hunt, I imported some matrix from Central Florida. It was around one quart. I'll share my findings, though I haven't identified too many yet. If anyone has any suggestions or corrections, I'd appreciate it! These are the highlights. Megalodon fragment; and the next two are possibly from the same lineage but I'm not sure. Maybe a prehistoric crocodile or alligator tooth My best guess would be a crocodile or alligator femur Not a clue Again, not sure other than wagering at a deer tooth Manatee molar I want to say these are fragments of mammoth or mastadon tusks, but confirmation would be great Miscellaneous stuff, most of which I'm pretty sure are fossils but it's hard to ID any.
  8. Tooth shaped rock

    I found a rock on Stump Pass Beach in Englewood, FL. This said rock looks alot like a shark tooth. I had found several of the normal looking black teeth and I almost just cast this one aside, but it really resembles a shark tooth so I kept it. I just want to see if I can get verification if what I found is a really old fossilized tooth. Or not.
  9. Lee Creek Matrix Under A Microscope

    Hi. For Father's Day my kids got me an electic microscope. I have been picking through Lee Creek matrix that I purchased to get me through quarantine. I am really not familiar with smaller teeth so it would be greatly appreciated if anyone can confirm my ID. Enjoy the pics. For all the Dad's, I hope you had a great Father's day! This tooth is 2-3mm. I thought it was small tooth sand tiger but the root seems rather large. I have been all through Elasmo.com and I cannot find a match. The next 2 teeth cusps and the blade remind me of a mackerel but the root does not match a mackerel so I am kind of at a loss.
  10. Paleo Society of Austin had our first field trip since February. Spent four hours and found a smattering of good specimens. I already have a good variety from there so at this point I am looking for the odd species that has eluded me or better ones of what I already have. Found a few of each. One odd bit was this weird tooth crown I found on a tiny little spit of gravel. Photos are not great but maybe someone has a SWAG, or better, for me.
  11. Tar River Locations

    Hey guys, I have been a regular visitor of GMR in Greenville for about two years now. Highly recommended if you haven't been before, and if you do go you should check out George Powell's collection. I have made several visits and it never ceases to amaze me. I've heard of a few people snorkeling and or diving the Tar River in Greenville, as well as in Edgecombe county near Tarboro. Has anyone done this or know of areas that produce regularly? I have both snorkel and diving gear and would love to give the Tar a shot in the next few weeks if I can get a general area of where to start. Definitely do not want to take someones honey hole, but would greatly appreciate any information that can be given!
  12. Big Brook #8

    saturday was my 8th trip to Big Brook and came away with shark teeth, a (modern) deer jawbone, a Jergens Lotion glass bottle (1970s?) and a really cool iridescent rock the likes of which i've never seen there before. And possibly a lobster fossil.
  13. Shark teeth

    Hi everyone, I have here 4 partial tooth fragments. They were found in Charleston, South Carolina. I believe the first one is C. Angustiden, while the rest are Megalodon. Could anybody kindly confirm?
  14. Need help ID multiple Items

    Hi guys! I’m new to this, but my wife and I have been shark tooth hunting for the past month thanks to “quarantine”. We have found some interesting things, but can’t seem to pin point what they are exactly. We believe some may be megalodon teeth, great white teeth, and a dugong bone. All were found at Onslow beach,NC. We appreciate your guys help!
  15. Charleston, SC

    Hi everyone, I have here fossils found off a river bank near Charleston, South Carolina. I believe I know what some of these are, but would like some confirmation. For many of them, I have pretty much no idea. I'd appreciate any help! 1) Carcharocles Angustiden? 2) Megalodon fragment possibly 3 3) Front/back of the same tooth fragment 4) Front/back of the same tooth fragment. Megalodon possibly? 5) Front/back. Might it be a whale bone? 6) Front/back. I think many of the ones following are whale or dolphin bones. 7) Front/back 8) Front/back 9) Front/back 10) These looked similar to me, maybe fish tail bones? 11) Front/back 12) Front/back 13) Front/back 14) Front/back
  16. Shark teeth and vert

    Some miscellaneous fossils. Teeth are from Flag pond, MD. Vertebrae (10 mm) is from Douglas Point, MD.
  17. Fossil Spots Near Ocala?

    My five year old daughter has recently gotten into fossils and loves the water, so after looking around she really wants to go sifting for fossils/shark teeth in a creek/river. Are there any good spots near Ocala we could go try out? I assume places like the Silver River and Rainbow River are off limits? We recently went out on Orange Creek near Ft. McCoy and spent a few hours looking around, but never found any "gravel beds" or any rocky spots at all. Whenever we'd dig in the spots we did see (which weren't rocky) it would either just be a big clump of roots or just loose white sand. Do most creeks have a gravel bed spot, or is it just hit or miss where some do and some don't? What are some other tell-tale signs of a good spot? I really appreciate any help given!
  18. Hi everyone, Some time ago I was doing some prep on a block from the Phospate mines of Khouribga in Morocco (Cretaceous, Maastrichtian, 70 mya) with some Idgamanosaurus teeth in it. There were a lot of goodies in the block besides the two rooted Igdamanosaurus teeth like some coprolites, fish verts, a mosasaur tooth, Cretalamna tooth & Enchodus tooth. But I also found this little shark tooth which is around 2 mm in length, but I can't seem find a proper ID for it. So I was hoping that there might be someone here on the forum with some knowlegde on micro teeth from Khouribga that might know what this tooth is. Thank you in advance!
  19. I can't travel far at the moment so all my hunting for the past couple of months has been in a local Lower Carboniferous, Asbian aged freshwater lacustrine deposit, the Burdiehouse Limestone. This is one of the most laterally extensive beds in the Midland Valley of Scotland and luckily theres a few good eposures of it nearby where past quarrying has left some nice productive spoil heaps. I'm always hoping for complete fish when hunting in this bed but none have turned up so far in the recent hunts. I have been lucky on the tooth front though and came across my first lungfish tooth plate from this bed which I was really happy with The petalodont tooth Ageleodus pectinatus has been the most common find. These were some of my favourites, they range from 3mm to 6mm. I've also doubled my collection of these little Xenacathid teeth but I'm still not sure exactly what genus they belong to. They're pretty tiny little things, the larger of these two is 4mm and the smaller only 2mm. Holocephalan teeth are really rare in this formation so was very pleased with this one, its the largest Ive found so far at 6mm. Not sure of the ID but thinking some sort of Helodontid. The lungfish tooth plate, its still attached to the mandible and the whole thing is only 5mm long! Think its probably a Ctenodus sp. but not sure.
  20. building a mini-tebutje (shark dagger)

    I was assigned a project on the culture of Micronesia for my AP world history class, so I decided to build a tebutje (shark sword) to show the traditional warfare techniques of the region........ I had a lot of fun with this, and it was a good way to use some of the extra shark teeth I had in my collection! I attached a section of video I used for the project that shows the building and trial of my tebutje, I hope you have some fun with it too! * I may have mis-IDed some of the shark's teeth, my history teacher doesn't know much about sharks...so I'm good on that end. if you see a mis-IDed tooth, let me know! a photo of the final design:
  21. Receiving this gorgeous but mysterious specimen is from Upper Pennsylvanian limestone dated around 290-300 million years ago from somewhere around Kansas City. Looks like a tooth to me and my best guess would be orodus? But I have little experience with Pennsylvanian shark teeth in general and especially from this area, also cannot find a comparison elsewhere online. Any help will be appreciated.
  22. Douglas Point, small teeth

    Just decided to look at some of my small shark teeth (5 mm and less) from Douglas Point, since I can’t go hunting for awhile.
  23. Hi! I just returned home from the Venice Beach area in Florida and I was curious if anyone one could tell me what these broken fragments could have been. I’m a newbie here so any other recommendations on how to identify are welcomed thanks in advance
