  1. CH4ShotCaller

    A Keeper.

    Spent the day with a friend and her young son, he loves anything fossil. Arrived at a favorite site, Astoria Formation, Middle Miocene in Washington State. We hadn't even swung a pick yet and they found a nice Parotodus Benedeni tooth, a big one at that. I have never seen one from here. Just lying on the surface, winking at us. He was so excited! Now, the torch has been passed onto the next generation.
  2. Megalodon theet are not difficult to find, but I'm attracted by this one (sopposedly from Indonesia) both because of its size (12.42cm) and its colours. Seller admits to root restoration (I can see that myself...), erosion and cracks, and says that "colours may change slightly as it dries out"(?). What would you suggest - worth pursuing? Thanks

    Dermal Denticle? Lance fm. Wyoming

    Hi everyone. I found this little fossil recently while working through a sandy conglomerate matrix I brought back from this summer's hunt in Wyoming's Lance fm. I believe it's a dermal denticle from some variety of cartilaginous fish, my first guess would be the Hybodont shark Lonchidion, but the guitarfish Myledaphus is also incredibly common in these sediments, however I haven't seen any pictures of denticles belonging to the latter or close relatives. It's about 2 mm long and about 1.5 mm tall. I would love to hear some input. Thanks, Noel
  5. I find these all the time and write them off as just more crinoid parts. The locals bring me tooth-like crinoid parts all the time. This ain’ no Petalodus I’m familiar with... Stanton Formation However, a student brought me this one today... I have about a half dozen at home. Is this a “shark tooth” or crinoid parts?
  6. Up for trade is this beautiful 4.7” Megalodon tooth from Indonesia. It has repairs to cracks along the middle of the blade but no restoration as far as I can tell. There is a very tiny patch of fill on the back side smaller than a dime. I am open to all trade offers. This tooth has some of the best colors you’ll see on a tooth and has razor serrations and tip. It even has some sea shells imbedded in the root

    Shark tooth for id

    Hello! Help to identify this tooth. Width: 2,5 mm. Height: 2 mm. Age: Cretaceous - Paleogene. Location: Western Ukraine Thanks!
  8. Hey Folks, my presence has been a little light on here lately, I have been hanging around in TFF facebook as an admin and working on furthering my nascent paleo career. I hope you are all doing well, I certainly miss all my forum friends! I have been doing a little side project for a few months: writing Wikipedia pages for fossil Cartilaginous fish. It's one little way I can give back to the fossil community, so the next curious person doesn't have to go through the trouble of finding and accessing references and distilling information for obscure species as I have. It's also a tas

    Shark tooth ID

    Hello! Help to identify it please? Root is broken but comparatively long. Size: ~ 5 mm. Age: Cretaceous - Neogene. Location: Western Ukraine Thanks!
  10. Hi all!! These were found along the Venice, FL beaches this past week (along with other items that like dozens of shark teeth, a sand dollar, lots of shells, etc). My extreme novice research says the common epochs here are Plio and Pleistocene (but spans early Miocene through Pleistocene epochs from what I have read), with the main formations being undifferentiated shellbeds, Caloosahatchee formation, Tamiami formation, and Fort Thompson Formation (although I've seen geo material reference others as well like the Peace River Formation, which I know is popular on TFF, but unsure whether it actu
  11. Howdy! Took a quick trip up to Dallas last week (kitten transport to two lucky families!) and I got a little fossil hunting in as well. The creek was Woodbine Form. Found this partial vertebra and was thinking it was mosasaur (FINALLY FOUND ONE! even if it is pretty banged up) but a friend says maybe not? Any thoughts? And also found this lovely little shark vert. Any way of telling what kind? (I think it's a shark vert, anyways. I might be wrong...lemme know!) Measurement in Inches

    Venice Shark Tooth ID, Please

    Hello, newbie here! My son found this on our property in Venice, Florida. Our home backs up to Alligator Creek (original headwaters for Lemon Bay). Just moved to Florida this summer, so I have other posts to make as well - hoping you all will share your knowledge so that I can get better at knowing when I see something special and, overtime, learn how to identify some of these things myself (besides basic teeth like Lemon Sharks lol. Initial guesses on this were great white, baby meg (seems too small, but the shape and characteristics seem right), dusky, or extinct mako (just trying to do my p

    Shark tooth ID

    Hello! Help to identify it please? Is it Physogaleus..? Max size: ~ 6,5 mm. Age: Cretaceous - Neogene. Location: Western Ukraine Thanks!
  14. My 29th trip to Big Brook may well have been my best yet. Instead of my two usual entry points I entered by an unnamed tributary I found on a map. It was small and narrow and overgrown and clearly not the “road” most traveled. Probably the least shark teeth I’ve ever found: photo of 5 below. Picked up several broken bottle bottoms with writing which I get a kick out of including an unbroken Vicks Vaporub! I found a bunch of bone most of which I probably deer but the dark wide one is likely not. Below is a photo of what I think is the first bear footprint I’ve ever seen there. Probably wron
  15. Here are some finds from two trips in early November. Several ptychodus with one nice large one, a ton of shark teeth shards, a couple pieces of mammal enamel, and some unknowns. Im posting the shark teeth first and then will post the pictures of some of the others. Let me know what you think. Anyone know the species of the teeth in picture 1? I was specifically wondering about number 3 from the first picture. Pictures 6-10 are closeups. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

    Tooth for ID

    Hello! Is it possible to identify this tooth? May be Synechodus? Height: ~ 5 mm. Age: most probably redeposits from Cretaceous or Paleogene. Location: Western Ukraine Thanks!

    Shark Tooth ID - Florida (Part 2)

    Please help me ID these shark teeth that were found on the west coast of Florida (near Venice) over the past weekend. My belief is that the top row could be Great White and/or Megalodon (very nice serration on the largest/first one), the second row is either Bull or Dusky, and the third row is Hemipristis (Snaggletooth). As for the fourth row... the jury is still out. I am most intrigued by the third/tiny one (from left to right). It looks different from anything else I have ever found. Very compact, lots of detail, and oddly shaped. Any ideas???

    Shark Tooth ID - Florida

    Please help ID any of these sharks teeth that were collected from the west coast of Florida (near Venice) this past weekend. Based on my research, the top two rows look like Sand Tiger and the bottom two look like Lemon. Would this be correct or are there any that look out of sorts?

    Shark tooth embedded in bone?

    Hi everyone, A friend found this bone with what looks like a shark tooth embedded into it while he was hunting in Bakersfield near Shark Tooth Hill. Does it look like an embedded shark tooth? and what type of shark do you think it could be from? He found several Hastalis and Planus teeth in the same layer. I really appreciate all the help the community has provided me. I learn something new every time. Thanks!

    Physogaleus tooth?

    Hello! Is it Physogaleus tooth. Length: ~ 6 mm. Age: Cretaceus - Miocene. Location: Western Ukraine Thanks!
  21. Last time I visited the outer banks, I was in Corolla and I found some of my best ice age fossils ever. So when my mom and all the other adults wanted to go again for two weeks, I didn’t protest. So off we went, down to Duck this time. It turns out that we had to leave a little early, but I wasn’t disappointed because I got what I wanted from that place. The amount of fossils here were a lot less common to find than in Corolla and I found myself walking miles and miles between finds before stumbling across something. With that being said, I got some nice sharks teeth, ray plates, more fish bon

    Miocene Shark Teeth - ID

    Hello! I'm new to this forum and fossil hunting overall. I'd love some help identifying my best shark teeth finds so far (still holding out for some big ones). Especially the (partial?) on the top row, as it's very serrated and my biggest to-date. These are all from Calvert Cliffs, Matoaka / Long Beach area, and a couple from Flag Ponds, so all Miocene. (Please let me know if it would be helpful to upload any other photos or info.) Many thanks!
