  1. I'm going through my vertebrate collection and making sure the labels are correct before I start forgetting everything haha. I have here two small bones that I found from the Lee Creek Mine in NC. I collected the white one from the Pliocene Yorktown Fm, a marine fauna. The brownish one was collected from mine spoil, so it could range from Miocene-Pleistocene. I have them tentatively identified as marine mammal phalanges, but these are somewhat out of my comfort zone. Thoughts? I"ve tried to show the two bones from all angles. If better or additional photos or needed,
  2. This is from the Aurora North Carolina matrix. I have tried to ID this little tooth (4 mm) and have been unable to find a match. It seems different than any of the others I've come across. Any help will be appreciated! Plus here's a few other things that I'd love an ID if possible! Thanks y'all! 1. 2. Also found this tooth (assuming it is probably a fish tooth?) 4mm also 3.and then this thing - also thinking it's something "fishy" ? 6 mm
  3. 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

    Aurora Fossil Museum micro matrix

    I have a quick question for those that have bought and gone through their micro matrix from the Aurora Fossil Museum. Did you wash it before going through it, or wash it after you've found your fossils? I got the pack with the mini screen for sifting, but I'm a little afraid to wash it all first and risk losing tiny teeth. How did you all go about doing yours, or what do you think the best way would be?
  6. Hi everyone! Little over a week ago I recieved some new bags of microfossil matrix and this time there was a bag with material from the Lee Creek Mine, Yorktown Formation, Aurora, North Carolina, USA (Miocene, 14,5 mya) This material is quite rich in shark teeth as I found little over 90 shark teeth in it. I have photographed a couple of them already and posted them in my microfossil topic. But since I doubt I will get many help with the identification of the teeth there I am going to repost the first batch of teeth here (I apologize for the repost admins) and upload the re

    Aurora Shark Tooth ID Help

    Hello. I found this tooth about a year and a half ago in the spoil piles outside the Aurora Fossil Museum. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify it? I think it might be a mako tooth (Isurus oxyrinchus?). Also, does anyone know why one side of the root is much smaller than the other? Is that damage? Or maybe due to jaw position? Thanks for your help.

    Lee Creek Dolphin Tooth?

    I have here a tooth from Lee Creek, Aurora, North Carolina. I believe it to be Kentriodon. It's a hair above 1". Does this seem accurate? If so, could it potentially be narrowed down further yet? Thank you, Bellamy

    So Many Minis!

    From the album: Aurora/Lee Creek Mine Micro Matrix

    This assemblage came from one cup (about 340 ml) of micro matrix from Aurora Fossil Museum. Oddly, they are generally much larger than most of what I found in the rest of the matrix. They are all from either the Pliocene or Pleistocene. See album description.

    Aurora, NC - Squalodon?

    I have a dozen teeth from Aurora, North Carolina that I believe to be from the toothed whale Squalodon. Instead of uploading photos of that many, I'm uploading a few that are representative of the dozen and detailed photographs of three of these. For context, the first tooth here is 2.5" long and 1" wide at its thickest.

    Seal or Walrus?

    hello all, it's been a while since I've been on. I hope you are all doing well in these trying times. I recently purchased a series of large mammal phalanges from Lee Creek. They're clearly Yorktown (Pliocene). While they seem to resemble seal phalanges, they're awfully large (14-15 cm). I'm wondering if they are walrus instead? Does anyone know if the last Smithsonian Lee Creek volume (Vol 4) is available online as a pdf? Alternately, are there easy "tolls" that I can use to distinguish, or does anyone feel comfortable making a distinction? Thanks!

    Weird Neogene/Pleistocene Tooth

    I found this the other day in a bag of Aurora micro matrix. It's only about 3 mm long. Could be Miocene, Pliocene or Pleistocene as all three run through the mine and the matrix is thoroughly sifted together during mining operations. There appears to be a root and possibly two tips broken off?

    Help with some fossil shell IDs

    Hi. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify these shells. Thanks for your help. The first two shells were found in the spoil pile outside of the Aurora Fossil Museum in Aurora, North Carolina. They come from the Lee Creek Mine and are from the Pungo River Formation. I don't know much about shells in general, but I think this comes from a scallop. I unfortunately don't have any locality info on it.

    Micro Gastropod

    This came from a bag of mixed micro matrix from the Lee Creek AKA Aurora Mine which was sifted, sifted again and sifted some more. It is a mixture of material from three formations: the Miocene Pungo River Fm., the Pliocene Chowan River Fm., and the Pleistocene James City Fm. After digging through reputable resources covering the area from Maryland down to Florida, the administrators and I have mostly ruled out Miocene as none of the references mention anything similar from that time period. Three names are given for the species from the Pliocene and Pleistocene. Ward and Blackwelder
  22. Hi everyone, I was looking online to see if definitive remains of Squalodon have been found in sediments from the Lee Creek mine in Aurora. What I found from older posts on the forum is that similar looking teeth have been found but belong to different toothed whale species. Also fossilguy.com shows several teeth which are labeled as Squalodon. I was interested in learning more about this as a Squalodon tooth is definitely on my bucket list and I plan on revisiting the spoil piles at Aurora within the next few years.

    Micro Fish (?) Tooth

    I found this - almost missed this - while sifting through some micro matrix today. I'm guessing some sort of fish tooth, but can anyone confirm? From Aurora Fossil Museum, Aurora, North Carolina. Lower to middle Miocene from the Pungo River Fm. It's so small that I have a hard time getting the camera to focus and my microscope cam just made it a big, black blob, so I apologize for the soft focus. That course rug it's sitting on is a piece of fine velvet!

    Found in North Carolina

    Hello everyone, newbie here, and thank you for helping me figure out what I found. All those were found in a pile of mixed gravel/sand/sea shelves in Raleigh, NC but it was imported, I believe from the Aurora, NC mine several years ago. Anyway, I was lucky enough to find several items including bones and dozens of shark teeth but I am not familiar with a few of my findings. Hopefully you guys can help, Thanks again!!!

    Aurora, NC Shark Teeth

    I have been working on reorganizing my collection the last few days. Today it was looking through my finds from my trip to Aurora, NC many years ago. I was able to identify everything except these 6 teeth. I understand they are not the best examples, but since it was my only chance to visit I kept everything that I found. Any help is greatly appreciated. #1 - maybe Carcharodon hastalis? #2 - maybe Carcharias sp.? - there is a little wide cusplet next to the crown
