    German Shark Teeth

    I bought a set of shark teeth from the Eocene of Fürstenau, Germany. I have some pretty decent shots of them, though these are the only photographs available for now. 1 cm - 3.5 cm is the range Really I have no idea on species, and nor does the seller. Some appear to be sand tigers, and indeed upon researching the locality those are described from there. Others from that locality include Otodus auriculatus and Isurus praecursor, and those were the ones I was really after. And while I cannot seem to see any of the former, I do believe a few are Praecursor. I'm attaching
  3. I was going through my collection and found this tooth in with my Carcharias (Sand Tiger) teeth from Bayfront Park, Calvert Cliffs (Miocene). It doesn't resemble the others and I wondered if it might be something else. It is 7/8 of an inch tall. Thanks.

    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
  6. Thanks to a post from Candace ( @thelivingdead531 ) I found out about the Aurora Fossil Museum's box o' matrix that they sell! (all moneys benefit the museum, which was a bonus). I got two Gallon Bags of matrix to sift through and wow....some really great stuff! They send a really good ID sheet too. But of course, there's even more info here on the FF! So here are some of my favorite finds so far. I've only gone through about 6 cups of matrix!! SO MUCH MATRIX! I havn't really done much ID'ing yet (the shark teeth) but my favorite by far is the crab stuff....love those pincers!! And the colo

    Unidentified Summerville Tooth

    Greetings everyone. I collected this pretty little tooth on one of my Summerville, SC trips when I lived in Georgia. It's escaped scrutiny until now. While it unfortunately lacks the root the uniqueness has made me pursue an ID anyway, although it might not be possible. I have considered a serrated Alopias grandis based on the depth, irregular serrations, and overall shape. I've also considered a juvenile Otodus angustidens but I'm having difficulty finding good examples so a lot of comparisons are instead made with other Otodus species. I'd be interested in seeing what others think.

    Mustelus tooth?

    Hello! Could it be Mustelus sp. tooth? It has some "serration" in interesting part of enamel (see arrows). Length - 2 mm. Age: most probably Miocene. Location: Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance! Kolya

    Extraordinary Common Teeth

    Shark Tooth From Central Texas

    This little gem was found while walking a mostly dry creek bed in drought-stricken central Texas. The only other shark teeth I've found nearby were Squalicorax and Ptychodus. What do you think this one is? It's 3.5cm long, and has no serrations. Thanks for your time and consideration.

    PG county Aquia (one more time)

    I was going to do some more exploring of new areas (trying to find a Calvert exposure until I can get the boat in the water since everything’s closed) but I decided to go back here yet again. I made a pretty good decision I think because I found a bunch of shark teeth that are of decent size, and a killer shark and fish vertebrae. I also found a small block of Calvert formation here too, and I found a lot of it exposed on another piece of land a few weeks ago, but then turned around after seeing a bunch of “no trespassing” signs posted all up and down. Go figure. So until I find anot

    They are megalodon teeth ?

    I found these two teeth, and I would like to know if they are small megalodon or angustidens teeth?
  16. Found this crazy polka dot shark tooth in my Post Oak Creek Matrix! I wasn't sure what it was at all until I got pics.....it's a bryozoan! It arched a little over onto the back side! It's been a Bryozoan kind of week....found this cool critter in the Glen Rose Formation. I put it in my "Big Uglies" collection - a Chlamys bivalve with lots of other organisms on it....including this interesting bryozoan!

    WA state shark tooth

    Hey gang. This is my first looking for an ID, hopefully I'm going about it the right way. I found this gorgeous little tooth a couple weeks ago in big chunk of matrix I brought home from an exposure I believe is miocene Lincoln Creek Formation. It is my first found shark tooth, and I am super excited about it. From what I can tell, shark teeth are fairly uncommon in Washington, and any ideas on species would be much appreciated. Sorry for poor image quality, photography is on the long list of things I need to improve upon.
  19. Howdy! How do you tell a Shark Vertebra from a Ray Vertebra? I can't seem to find much info online about Ray Verts. I came across (and vaguely remembered reading on a post) that ray vertebrae are more rectangular....is that true? Here are a few vertebrae that I think might be ray and if I could get a positive yay or nay on that.....I'd be very grateful! These are from Post Oak Creek in Texas - Cretaceous Era Size 4mm Size 3 mm
  20. 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
  21. Everyone said NSR was dry and picked over but I hiked 9 hrs and found some cool stuff. My favorites are the Protostega costal bone with partial rib head preserved, the mosasaur bone with bite mark and the artifacts. I walked in tracks all day but the river is too large for someone to get everything and people miss quite a bit.

    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
  23. Over the past year, I've become fascinated with the often bizarre fish and sharks of the Pennsylvanian. Fortunately, my home state of Illinois is a great place to hunt for such fossils. I've shared several of these in other posts before, but wanted to put everything together in one thread. Probably won't have much to post for a few months after this, but once summer rolls around, I should hopefully have plenty of new finds to share. I would say there are three major settings in which you can find fish fossils in Illinois: Mazon Creek, black shales, and limestone. I have not had luc

    Taiwan Shark Teeth

    Hi, Are there any shark teeth described from localities in Taiwan? I found one for sale, a Carcharhinid from Yujing. However, I cannot find anything of the sort in the literature. I'd appreciate any information. Thank you, Bellamy Edit: "Fish fossils of Taiwan: a review and prospection" in Historical Biology notes Carcharhinus sp. from Taiwan. Any further information would be wonderful, especially if any of those have been described.

    Best day yet on the creek!

    This is from a two day trip to the same creek. The first trip I found some clues that there may be big teeth here due to the large ray plates I found (the first day was mostly rays so you can tell them apart kinda). I found a few small shark teeth and I called it a day. The next morning, I set out for the creek yet again and I knew I made a good decision because I was going to explore a new place. Sometimes it’s good to explore something uncharted another day. I found a lot of teeth including this beauty that tooth was absolutely flawless and came right out the formation. I found a lot more sh
