    I have not been out hunting enough, which has me looking at old TFF threads. I posted this canine 5 years ago in FosslID , but did not get much feedback and it faded without me learning much about it. Originally, I thought Alligator, because of the hollow root. but it did not have a horizontal edge between enamel and root, and the root was not an oval shape. Then I considered Dire wolf, because of the shape of the enamel, and the shaped carina down the side. I wondered at that time if the tooth was unerupted. I have never found/identified a Dire Wolf fossil from this site
  2. Hi everyone, I recently bought this tooth on a whim. It was described as Diplocynodon sp. from the Kimmeridge Clay and reworked into the Albian-age Faringdon Sponge Gravels at the Wicklesham Pit. However, this description is obviously wrong in either species attribution or locality, since Diplocynodon is an alligatoroid genus dating to the Paleocene to middle Miocene, and could therefore not possibly have been found in the Sponge Gravels as Wicklesham Pit. Going by the label that came with the tooth, however, the seller whom I bought the
  3. Found on Holden Beach, North Carolina. If you need certain measurements let me know, thank you.
  4. Hello I've been "fossil dormant" for quite a while, but was on the beach yesterday and found these (the recent storms have churned/coughed up some new layers I think) the start tooth may be hard to ID without any of the bourlette, but I can tell you that it has absolutely no serrations - perfectly smooth cutting edges. Mako? As for the small conical tooth, I think it is alligator, but I'm not sure if alligator teeth have distinct sharp crease from tip to base on opposite sides like this tooth does. Thanks for any advice

    Fossilized Tooth?

    Can anyone identify this? It was found on a dirt road in SE Georgia near the coast. Dredgings from the shipping channel are used to fortify dirt roads. I know it's difficult to do using pictures alone so I'll include as many clear shots as possible.
  6. I noticed the fossils of more 'modern' reptiles are not commonly shown/displayed (partly because I think they are fairly common in the U.S. and not viewed as too spectacular), so I thought we might do so here. I'd love to see your croc/alligator and turtle material, especially from various locations!

    Bone fragment

    Here’s a chunk of crocogator I found on the Brazos River in SE Texas. It doesn’t look like the typical osteoderms that are found . I’m not sure if there’s enough here to identify a specific bone…
  8. Here I have a prett rare a nicely preserved Deinosuchus Riograndensis tooth from the Bufftown Formation, Alabama. Looking for great quality theropod teeth from the KemKem region, preferably Carcharodontosaurus. Open for other dinosaur teeth as well. Just hit me up!
  9. Hello! I am wondering how much this alligator jaw is worth, It is 6 inches and its from the peace river formation ~5 million years old. I thas 5 teeth and 13 sockets (including the ones with teeth) Thank you!

    What tooth is this?

    Hi, Just found this tooth in the Cape Fear River of Wilmingnton, NC. I think it’s either a prehistoric alligator or crocodile. Trying to identify its species, help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Fossil ID - Reptile? - Maryland

    Found these in Maryland at Flag Ponds State Park which is known for it's abundance of marine fossils. I think the lighter colored piece is some sort of reptile (maybe alligator or turtle) skin? The black piece seems to be a some sort of fossilized reptile skin? Seeking expertise or thoughts, thanks!
  12. Here is my newest addition to the collection. A pretty decently sized Deinosuchus riograndensis tooth from the Aguja formation in Texas. The colors and quality on this tooth is actually insane, do not get much better than that.
  13. I've been trying to do some research about actual gator scutes not ostoderms that we call scutes. I know that Dino skin can be found so can croc also? Would love to hear about this subject and see some great photos if possible too please!
  14. Found on the shores of Holden Beach, North Carolina. If you need measurements of anything let me know, thanks.

    And yet another Peace River question.

    This is my final ID question. I promise. Until the next one. I'm thinking an alligator tooth with a very worn crown. Tom

    Fossilized Skin?

    I found this fossil in a pallet of rocks I got for landscaping. The rock came out of the Arkansas river. When you stick your tongue to it, it sticks as a bone would. I think it looks like reptilian skin. Could anybody help me out?

    Some fossils for identification

    I just posted some colorful small shark teeth I found yesterday, but also went out Saturday. I had a number of finds which were small and I was not certain of their identification... 1) An Epiphysis, which I think is a long bone "cap" for a juvenile mammal. Which bone? 2.) A possible claw... Could this be bear ? 3) Looks like a Carpal or Tarsal, but not one that I have seen. VERY light in weight. 4) An odd Alligator or Crocodile Osteoderm. On the left of the 2nd photo, there is a flat section on the left edge, and then
  18. I bought this tooth together with two other teeth as ''Smilodon teeth'' last year. Thanks to this forum, I found out that the other two teeth are actually Enchodus teeth! I think this one might be something else. Someone on Reddit told me that it could be a crocodile tooth, but I have little to no knowledge about crocodile teeth. I understand if it's difficult to identify, because the tooth isn't complete. It's 2cm and the seller couldn't give me information about where this was found. Any help is appreciated, thanks!

    A bone

    http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/82717-kem-kem-bone/ This link above has an interesting picture of an Alligator shoulder blade, that I thought a little similar. Not broken, a lot of detail... How come this one is difficult? ....

    Hello I am considering getting this set of Deinosuchus teeth. 37 teeth. They are from Chattahoochee River region, Bullock County, Alabama, USA. With the formation given as Ripley Now, looking online, it doesn't show Deinosuchus as being from there. But I do see teeth sold elsewhere as Deinosuchus from the Chattahoochee River. They were also apparently found in a dive along with David. R Scwimmer, who wrote a book on Deinosuchus. The largest is 27mm the smallest 10mm. If someone can take a look, that would be great.
  21. We found this tooth near 48th Ave in Myrtle Beach on Jan. 20, 2022. We have never found a curved tooth before. Any idea what it might be? We were thinking alligator or mosasaur. Thanks! Deb and Wayne Lien

    Peace River Hunt

    Got out on the river yesterday for what turned out to be a productive day. It was a chilly morning so the wetsuit was a necessity. Even if the air temp is warmer the water stays cold throughout the day. I returned to a gravel bed I found earlier in the week and got right down to digging and sifting. Every clean out of the sifter provided a good number of various small shark teeth. Tiger, Sand Tiger, Snaggle Tooth were abundant. A few small partial megs and even a baby Mako made an appearance. Below is a picture of the best of the shark teeth along with an alligator tooth and what I b
  23. Various teeth from Eagle Ford, Cretaceous, I'm a long way from recognizing teeth since I don't find them often so appreciate the education. My guess for first one would be Mako, it also looks very much like the tiny one in #3, second one I'm not sure at all and wondering what made all the marks on it? Last group I think there's an Echnodus, and cone shaped one looks like alligator or it's just wishful thinking.
