    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!
  2. I made a trade with a fellow Texas fossil hunter - sent him some Central Texas goodies for some North Texas Post Oak Creek gravel. I was hoping to get a gallon bag to look through in my microscope.....and he sent me FIVE gallon bags full of just scooped up out of the creek gravel! So far I've made it through ONE and a half of those bags! It may take me the rest of 2020 and right on through most of 2021! So I thought I'd post some of the good stuff I've found so far. Starting it off with THE TEETH. There were some larger teeth, nothing great, no ptychodus, which I was hoping for, but the mini
  3. Hello everyone, So here we are, back in lock-down so an ideal time to review some finds. Just prior to the latest imprisonment I dashed down to Tidmoor Point near Chesil Beach for the day and grabbed some gravel to look through at home during the long nights. A few interesting items turned up and I wonder if anyone can help ID them please? The first 2 photo's show 3 teeth, the first 2 look to be from the same type of animal, the last evidently something very different. Do you think these were from (small) sharks or some kind of fish, (the divisions on the ruler are in mm). The l

    Fossil hunting after rainfall

    Yesterday we had heavy rainfall in Charleston. Rainfall is of course one of the natural elements that erodes the material surrounding fossils. We know that some fossils become exposed to the earths surface due to rain. In Charleston, good areas to search after a hard rain are shores, river edges, creeks, gravel beds, and excavation sites. Dredge piles are also good search areas. There is a particular area on Folly Beach which has a significant amount of dredge material. It would be a good area to search today or tomorrow at low tide. I suggest you search here between 10am and 2pm (low tide). T

    Bones 'n Teeth

    Spent the day in Washington's Astoria Formation. I was looking for anything avian related, but anything, especially pinniped or cetacean would be just fine. Found a few shark teeth, nowhere near as plentiful as the Carolinas and some whale bones (ribs and a vertebrae). If I'm hunting, I'm happy.

    Impromptu Trip?

    Good afternoon, fossil friends! This post is a bit of a long shot, but I figured I’d rather ask than not! This may be the incorrect thread to PLAN trips, so if it is, please let me know and I’ll delete it! I certainly intend to share some stories from past trips, but I’ve found myself with free time Wednesday in the first half of the day and I’d love to go on an adventure fossil hunting with someone who is also available, should anyone be up for that! I’m also down to plan future trips for other dates! I live in Denton county and I’m more than willing to travel a couple hours fo

    Which 6 should i keep?

    Today was my 27th trip to Big Brook. Cold to start but not as cold as last week when I had to give up and leave. Park rules only allow you to keep 6 “artifacts”. So here is what I found. Which 6 would you suggest i keep? And why? Thank you all
  9. Hello guys, My apolo in advance for possibly some mismatch with forum rules, trying my best to address them. My question about shark tooth fossil which I bought on online auction for my son.

    Cretaceous shark centrum?

    Hi all, My mom was going through some old things in the basement and found this. She said she found it when she was a kid, so I'm making assumptions it was found in Ellis County, Kansas. I've found several sharks teeth in the area which I believe are primarily Cretoxyrhina and Squalicorax based on location and pictures on this sites like these. My very amateur guess is centrum from one of those two, but am curious as to your thoughts. Thanks

    Another shark tooth for ID.

    Hello again! Today I found another tooth very similar to tooth in my previous topic but in better condition ( Help please to identify it. Length: 4 mm. Age: most probably Miocene. Location: Western Ukraine Thanks!

    Caseodus shark jaw

    Went on a fossil hunt with Forum member Conostichus yesterday near Oologah, OK at a site suspected to be in the the Excello shale, Pennsylvanian age. I found a jaw that looks like some one the [suspected] edestus jaws I’ve found out there, but this one looked different. This looks like it has teeth along it (first pic) and the teeth (Although heavily worn) look like caseodus. What do you think?
  15. Here are the Squalicorax sp. shark teeth I mentioned in my earlier post. As with the others, these didn't come with specific location information, but were most likely collected in the North Texas area. My IDs may be way off, so please correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks for looking! The scale in the photos is in centimeters. #1 - Squalicorax baharijensis #2 - Squalicorax pawpawensis #3 - Squalicorax falcutus #4 - Squalicorax sp. - I'm not sure what species this might be. The blade is finely serrated

    Cretaceous shark teeth IDs #1

    I recently acquired the Cretaceous shark teeth below from the estate of a Dallas, TX, collector. They were most likely collected in the North Texas area, but didn't come with specific location info. I'm hoping folks here can help confirm my IDs. The scale in the photos is in centimeters. #1 - Leptostyrax macrorhiza - The tooth on its own in the second photo was in a separate batch from the same collector. It may be from the same place as the others or collected elsewhere. #2 - Cretoxyrhina mantelli - I'm more confident on this ID for the

    Striated both lingually and labially!

    Hello all. Back again with another unknown species from the Cabezon Coniacian fauna. You people were a great help in identifying the Cretoxyrhina tooth that I posted a couple of days ago, hopefully, you can help with this. By far, the most common striated tooth found in this fauna is Scapanorhynchus, of which I have literally thousands of teeth. There are a few that are looking like Leptostyrax that we are researching. And then there is this one. Not only does it have striations on the lingual face, as one would imagine, but it also has striations on the labial face
  18. I've always loved living fossils, especially the fish. They are relics of an age long lost, offering us a glimpse of an incredible prehistoric world. Some are enigmas that survived countless extinction events since the Devonian. Others are majestic predators that swam alongside the dinosaurs. Let me present my collection of living fossil fishes from the Mesozoic and before. I will begin with one of the most famous of all - the coelacanth Coelacanth Species: Whiteia woodwardi Age: 252.3 - 251.3 mya | early Triassic Formation: Diego Basin; Middle Sakamena Formation
