    River Finds From February

    Here are a few of the fossils I found in February. The meg measures about 5 3/4" and weighs a little over a pound while the ray plate almost 4" across the widest point. I was working my way up the river in a crazy rocky place and all of a sudden in the open was this tooth. The serration are pretty good considering the beat up display side of the tooth. I suspect that though the meg may not have rolled or moved much, a bunch of rocks have moved over it before I got there. And then there are some colorful makos. The bottom right mako is almost shaped like a planus, though I would guess it

    Hunting The River Banks

    I am a novice fossil hunter but a true addict just the same. I have hunted on and off for years and my finds range from 10 teeth on a trip to 350. Over the last two weekends I went out three times and found a good haul each time. I also posted some displays I have recently created. About four more to go before I can figure out where the heck I'll hang them.

    Saharan Shark Tooth. Needs Id

    I'm a new member of the forum, so please be patient. I apologize in advance for my ignorance. A friend of mine found this tooth in the Sahara. It's about 3" long (diagonal). It's obviously been reassembled (with wax). I was told the geologic strata was 40 million years old, but I don't know. I wish I could tell you more. I did a basic online search, but didn't find any teeth with more than three points like this one. Any ideas?

    Good Ol Aurora

    So I doodled on down to Aurora on Friday (8/31/12). My parents had come to visit and since I'm always yammering about fossils I decided to show them what it was all about. They loved it. My mom's first outting produced a Carcharocles angustidens tooth with the corner broken off, a nice lil modern mako and a cow shark lower (Notorrhynchus primigenius). I found my first dolphin tooth, first squalodon tooth and a nice modern tiger. In all reality, I think I had a hemipristis magnet on me! LOL! My dad did well. Finding all kinds of various teeth and some nice shark vert disks. He also found a very
  10. A couple weeks ago Petrol Pete was up in my neck of the woods, so my wife and I took him out to a few spots to look for something cool. We found a few shark teeth, and fish teeth, along with this section I'm fairly certain is Pachyrhizodus jaw. Forgot to get any pictures of us hunting, but we had a good time, and found some nice stuff. Pete gave me a couple blastoids that seem to elude me whenever I go looking for them, so I was thankful to finally get a couple in my collection. Here's a few pictures from our hunt. Not real sure what that little tooth is in the 3rd picture. Any ideas?
  11. Hello, I found this item on a recent vacation, and I was hoping for some help in identification, since my travel partner and I disagree on what it is (rock vs. tooth). Location: Sandy beach in Aruba (Caribbean island north of Venezuela). Size: Longest dimension is about 5 cm, as shown in the photos. Photos: Front: Rear: Side: Any help is greatly appreciated!
  12. Good evening! I've been going through and reasearching some of my summer trip finds this year and I am hoping for a little help! I am trying to figure out what the teeth in this picture are. This website has been incredibly helpful and has provided me with some think I knows but a few of them have me really stumped. They were all collected in Virginia and North Carolina. PLease feel free to correct my educated guesses. The larger teeth have smooth edges. The only one that has some seration is the small, wider one at the bottom-middle of the picture. If you need any close up picture I can cert

    Shark Tooth Albian Of Tx

    Earlier this year I ran across this tooth in the Glen Rose Formation of Central Texas. It is from about the middle of the formation (Unit 3, Upper Member) and would be Lower Albian in age. Note that it was found along with a few small round pychnodontid(?) teeth. For scale the red arrow is about 4.5mm in length. Not the small cusp between the large and outer cusp. There is a faint foramen on the lingual face. I will try and get sharper photos up if needed. The closest I have come is Cretolamna appendiculata only in that it fits the age and has a few characteristics that match. But all t

If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at joegallo1954@gmail.com and I'll be happy to send it to you. Please note that this list will be updated continuously as I find more available resources. All of these files are freely available on the Internet so there should be no copyright issues.

  15. I have been trying to find out some info about the tooth I have. As far as I can tell it's an alopias grandis, and much bigger than others I have seen online. I'm mainly trying to find out what it may be worth and/or where I could sell it.

  17. Hello! I'm new to the forum and in need of some info, I rersearched and decided this would be the best place to get info on my fossils. I have 26 shark teeth, 1 tooth that I believe is a shark, and 1 claw that I believe may be from a raptor. If anybody can help me to ID the species and general era of these fossils, I will be very appreciative. Thanks to all! All of these fossils were found on the South Eastern Florida coast. I have provided pictures, but if you need more detailed pictures of any of the fossils below, just ask and I can post new pictures in a sec. I've also labelled each tooth
  18. Heading to Amelia Island (Fernandina Beach) Florida tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone had any last minutes tips to help maximize my finds. I have maps printed out of where the dredging spoils have been laid, so hoping to stay in that area. Searching primarily for Sharks Teeth or whatever else may lurk. I would be grateful for any info at all, Thank You!

    Very Heavy Shark Tooth-Like Stone?

    I found this on the side of the road in Edgefield, SC. I am puzzled on what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. It is very heavy. It feels like a metal, but simple magnets do not attract or repel it. The bottom of it. The front of it. (Next to a guitar pick.) The back at which it can stand up on it's own.

    Megalodon Tooth

    nice meg found just over five and a half inches!
  21. Like many people here in eastern NC my first full fledged exposures to fossils was at the Aurora Fossil museum. Growing up here, I had seen and found my share of smaller sharks teeth and "petrified" clams as we called them, but never thought much about it. Never had anyone able to expose me to the world of fossils.(Plus, I was much more interested in baseball ..... then girls.) After I had grandkids a friend said, hey you should take them to the fossil museum in Aurora. So I did and the rest is, as we say, history. I was amazed at the teeth and everything else that was on display there. The f
  22. First stop at another new location and it shows real promise! I wish I would have had more than half an hour! An assortment of Pennsylvanian fossils from what I believe to be the Winterset oolitic limestone of Kansas City, Missouri, Jackson county. Not 100% certain on ID's except to say I think they are what the pics are named, any input is welcomed and much appreciated! It was the wierdest thing, the horn corals were all in a very localized area of about 10 feet at the bottom of the wall in the debris. None to either side nor up and down the outcropping for 20 yards in any direction and coul

    Back From Vacation

    Hello Everyone! So, it's been so long since I posted on the Fossil Forums it's almost like I'm new again! Since moving away from Florida I haven't done as much collecting, but my recent vacation took me back to the Peace River again! So I spent a day out in the water sifting the gravel and here are some shots of what I found. With the water level so low it was impressively easy to find untouched gravel beds. Here are the horse teeth I found. A few of these are in great shape and possibly from non-Equine horses. I will spend some time figuring those out later. These are a number of m
  24. Matoaka Cabins St Leonard MD is open for 2012 & Beach Hunting The wife passed away last fall and the husband is unable to run the business but the children and their partners are trying to make a go of it this year. You can't beat 6 dollars a night camping (2 day minimum). Its pretty rustic, no showers, cold water available and an a very vintage out house. But your 100 feet from the beach and hunting for shells and teeth. And electric is 3 dollars a day. Or day access to the beach for 4 dollars a day without camping. Or spend 500-600 and rent a cabin for a week with all the comforts o
  25. Hi guys, ran into a snag again. I 've got an unpolished Copal from Taiwan. Unfortunately, I haven't actually heard of Taiwan having copal deposits, so I highly doubt its actually from there. Anyone's got any clue to where or what Copal I am looking at? Next up, two shark teeth from the Ambon Island of Indonesia. I feel the one from the left is from a mackeral shark, maybe even Sand Tiger. The one on the right I feel is a mako, or dusky shark. Unfortunately I am no expert and so I would appreciate input from any experts here. If it would help, the teeth on the left is thick and the right is
