    Bone Valley Makos

    Hello! Help please to identify tooth. Height ~ 3 mm. Age: Cretaceous - Neogene. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  4. January in Texas is usually, weather wise, fantastic hunting. For seasonal allergy sufferers (like me) it can be miserable. But, we had a GREAT rain...two days of decent downpours and the temps were in the upper 60s, so, hoping the cedar pollen had been knocked out of the air a bit by the rains....I donned my mask and spent three hours out in the great outdoors and was I ever rewarded for my "perseverance"!!! hahahahha I had been hoping to find a Glen Rose Formation (Lower Cretaceous) Shark Tooth for a couple of years. I knew they could be found! Erich ( @erose) told me so and I believe him
  5. So, with the help and astute observations of LabRatKing and JDP, my "what is it" this may be an individual of Iniopterygiformes a chondricthyes/cartilagenous shark which resembles a modern day flying fish WAY COOL!!!!!!!! SO EXCITED!!!.. I am contacting pros who would have a much better idea and may be able to reveal more of the animal. I have radiographed it this morning, and maaayybbee I am seeing one of the "horns" depicted in paleo artist Ray Troll's painting?? at 12:00?

    Any ideas what type shark? Found in Alabama. I believe it to be cretaceous based on baculite shells found nearby.

    Indonesian Shark Tooth

    Hi everyone, I have here a 1" tooth identified as a Megalodon from West Java, Indonesia, allegedly a new creek locality. I know that smaller Megs may not necessarily have bourlettes, but there do not appear to be serrations. This could probably be explained by river wear. In any case, might this be a Meg, or could it be something else? Best, Bellamy

  11. After a trip to Venice Beach, Florida, I'm having trouble with identifying 2 fossils found onshore. The first is something I initially thought was a well worn micro shark tooth, but on closer inspection am having doubts. There is also a piece of what looks like petrified wood. Perhaps pine? Any help or resources would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Shark tooth ID

    Hello! Happy New Year! Help please to identify tooth. Height ~ 5 mm. Age: Cretaceous - Neogene (but most probably Cretaceous - Paleogene). Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  14. A 2020 silver lining for me personally was discovering a new hobby and my love for shark tooth hunting. I am fortunate to live in Charleston, SC which we all know is a hot spot for fossil shark teeth. In March, as government shutdowns were coming on strong, a friend invited me to go look for some teeth and there was no turning back. I have posted some of these teeth over the course of the year, but attached is a picture of my shadow box with all of my best teeth found in 2020. As this challenging year comes to a close, let’s celebrate all of the best teeth found over the

    Shark Tooth Hunting in the Potomac

    A few weeks ago my girlfriend and I decided to take advantage of the unusually warm December weather in Northern Virginia to visit the historic Stratford Hall and make a couple quick stops at the Miocene deposits in Westmoreland State Park and Stratford Hall and the Paleocene deposits in Purse State Park. To say the least, this trip was planned a bit on a whim. I was thoroughly unprepared - lacking boots or waders and having to buy a cheap plastic colander at Target to do some sifting. Luckily the Potomac River was cold, but not that cold, so I was able to wade out in my bare feet up to about

    Post Oak Creek 12-10-20

    I went back to a new spot on POC and found the typical array of broken shark teeth, a few Ptychodus teeth, and some interesting items I'm not really sure about. Anyone have an idea of what the item in pictures 6-8 are? What about 9-11 maybe coprolite or a fossilized crustacean? The item in pictures 12-14 appears to be a tooth but with no enamel I didn't think it was a shark tip. It could also just be a piece of bone or something. Sorry for the poor picture quality of that one but I will take better ones of it later. Im pretty sure picture 15 is a rudist and lastly the item in pictures 16-18 I

    An Autumn Road Trip

    In September, the desire to collect the Burlington Formation, Mississippian of Iowa got the best of me, “forced” my truck to make a little road trip down that way. The trip was about 4 hours, necessitating an overnight stay. Covid was running rampant, compelling me to sleep in the back of my pickup and eat out of a cooler full of food instead of motels and restaurants. This left a 64 year old man a bit stiff in the morning. The nice thing about the Burlington, it did not tax my body too much, allowing me hunt my allotted 8 hours with ease. Normally the Burlington is searched for crinoid specim

    What Kind of Shark Did This Tooth Belong To?

    Hi everybody. I've had this fossil shark tooth pendent for quite some time, I believe it used to belong to my grandmother. I'm not too good with shark teeth though. Anybody know who's mouth this tooth would have once called home?

    Post Oak Creek 12-1-20

    Here are my finds from my latest visit to Post Oak Creek. The first few pictures are of the shark teeth. Items 4-7 im assuming are part of a Mosasaur vertebrate? Items 8 and 9 are some type of mammal tooth. Not sure if it is modern or not. Finally item 10 is picture of what im assuming are modern mammal teeth. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.

    ID help: Deltodus tooth?

    I know very little about shark teeth. I found this one a while back in Pennsylvanian (Desmoinesian) shale in northeastern Oklahoma. I am speculating this may be deltodus only because I see a nearly identical tooth labeled as deltodus on another website. The fossil is very thin (too thin to photograph the edges). Besides confirming the taxonomy, can anyone tell me which surface of the tooth is shown in Side A? Finally, would you say Side B is mainly matrix (other than the edges)? I think matrix is showing through the cracks on Side A, and that may be the only thing holding the fossil together.
