  1. Wondering if anyone is planning to attend this years fossil festival in Aurora, NC Memorial weekend or if anyone who has attended previously has any recommendations/advice? I've spoken to the director and know the basics, just looking for any insight a first timer should be aware of.
  2. Hi Everyone! I'm willing to trade these 2 big boys from my personal collection. I'm looking for Megalodon teeth from more exotic Locations. Chile, Peru, Carribean for example. But also LC aurora and Mehherrin. Always open to other offers too. Tooth 1: Grey 6'05 from SC Small resto done to the lower sides of the restorations. Done professionally. But furthermore natural and practically perfect. Tooth 2: 6'40 coast Meg tooth from NC No restorations done. Almost half a kilo. Absolute monster.
  3. I could not find the date I found the attached amber from Lee Creek (about 26 trips). Had misplaced it (in one of my Miscellaneous bins, instead of one of my Lee Creek bins), but finally located it and is 4 inches long and 3 inches wide and a little over an inch high. I wonder how many, if any, inclusions could be inside?

    Whale shark tooth (2)

    From the album: Lee Creek

    Rhincodon cf. typus Pungo River Fm., Aurora, NC, USA a minute tooth from the biggest fish in the sea - the whale shark. Being filter-feeders, their teeth serve no known function and are considered vestigial.
  5. Greetings again Thisis a second vertebra also found at the Lee Creek Mine (aka Aurora) in Yorktown spoils. It is 50mm in length, rather porous and very light. I was thinking bird, but thought I'd get some other opinions. Any ID suggestions? The photos in order are: "bottom", "top", "side", end 1 and end 2

    Pliocene vertebra Yorktown Fm. Bird?

    Greetings, Since There's not much collecting to be done here, I've started diving into the collection and trying to ID and label. I found this vertebra at the Lee Creek Mine (aka Aurora) in Yorktown spoils. It is 33mm in length, rather porous and very light. I was thinking bird, but thought I'd get some other opinions. Any ID suggestions? The photos in order are: "bottom", "top", "side", end 1 and end 2

    My Best Finds of 2021!

    As most of y'all know, I enjoy photographing my fossils almost as much as I like finding them! So here are my Best Finds of 2021! No measurements because of "artistic preference" but they are arranged from smallest to largest in each category. I'd love to see your Favorite Finds of 2021 too! Texas Cretaceous: Cretaceous Cont, and Pennsylvanian And Texas Permian, Pleistocene, Eocene and Not Texas
  9. So, I have a nice collection of fossils ive found from 2 seperate trips to Aurora... I was told the straight and curved bones could be ribs (most likely dolphin), but I am unsure. I also have a 2-3 inch bone that lolks like it could be from a land animal. I also have 3 different vertebrates from something... One is medium-small, one is small, and then the other one is really small lol. Then, in the last picture and in the middle of the row... I have no idea what it could be, it looks like an imprimt of a plant maybe? I found another one and its red, but I forget where I put it... At the beginn

    Aurora Micro Matrix

    I was recently gifted some micro matrix from Aurora, North Carolina for Christmas and have been looking for tiny goodies. It is in single digit Fahrenheit temperature and it’s too dusty to search inside so can’t look today but I can hopefully receive some shark teeth IDs. There are some other unknowns but I haven’t photographed them yet and will wait to post until I am finished searching. I never knew ruining your neck could be so addictive. if you need more photos, I can get some. 1. Very strange and I have no idea 2. One of the bigger pieces and inco
  11. I looked through the non-shark tooth finds and there was a lot I didn’t know. Hopefully some of this can be identified. 1. Dolphin teeth, can they be further identified? I’m not sure if all these are cetacean but at least some are. @Boesse I’d appreciate your input. 2. a large tooth, is it a big fish or something else? 3. An image of more fish teeth, all appear to be from the same type. 4. This variety of fish teeth is much more narrow. 5. the last fish tooth variety, flat and broad. 6. I have a fee
  12. Hi all! I have a few things from the Aurora North Carolina Micro Matrix that I could use some help with ID. First is this odd "tooth" which I am assuming is some kind of fish tooth, but any thought on ID? Size 1/4 inch Also this little "thing". Coprolite perhaps? Size 1/8 inch and lastly this little piece: Size 1/4 inch

    Fossil shark teeth

    I recently received some micro matrix from @thelivingdead531. Again thank you so much, it is an awesome gift! But I have been trying to ID the shark teeth and can't figure out what any of them for sure are. I would really appreciate any help. Also sorry about the quality of the pics. I may be able to take better pictures, but only if I need to.
  14. Hello all! I have a HUGE bucket of Aurora Micro that I am slowly going through and I am hoping I am getting my ID's accurate, so I am posting what I think are each kind. Please confirm or address any wrong IDs. Thanks!! These are all micros, so around 1/8 inch - 1/4 inch or aprox 3-9mm EDITED TO ADD CORRECTED ID'S 1.Sphyrna sp. Hammerhead Shark (Not Bronze Whaler) Carcharhinus brachyurus: Bronze whaler 2, Carcharias sp Sand Tiger 3. posterior 4. and C, taurus 5.
  15. Scale is in mm. Found in Lee Creek material.

    One more Odontocete? tooth, Pliocene

    One more. What throws me off about this one is the oval root base, when all several dozen other Odontocete teeth have a circular root base, and the wear pattern on the tip. Thoughts?

    odontocete teeth ID, Pliocene

    hello everyone, I am looking for some assistance in identifying two odontocete teeth from the Pliocene Yorktown Fm, Lee Creek Mine. The first photo shows the two teeth in question on the left vs a Kogiopsis sp. tooth on the right Are the teeth in question just Kogiopsis with the crunchy outer coating intact? Marine mammal ID isn't my forte. There are 3 photos each. Interesting that the second of these teeth almost has an opaline filling of the basal cavity. Any help is greatly appreciated! TOOTH #1 TO

    Carcharhinus obscurus

    From the album: Sharks

    "Dusky shark" Yorktown Fm., Lee Creek Mine, Beaufort Co., Aurora, NC, USA
  19. I was able to acquire a nice Giant Thresher (Alopias Grandis, non-serrated form) that came from Lee Creek (Aurora, NC). It's the third in my collection. I'm curious to know how rare/uncommon they are from that location. Giant Thresher shark teeth seem to be found with some regularity in South Carolina, although they be from the Oligocene. Giant threshers are also found in Maryland along Calvert Cliffs (Miocene). I've seen a few other Giant Threshers from Lee Creek in other people's collections and have heard about a few others. Curious to know, especially from some of the long-
