    First trip to Aurora

    Although I didn't find anything impressive, I thought I would share my first Aurora experience anyway, for those who have never been. My husband and I made an impromptu trip to Aurora yesterday after hearing that they just got a new pile from the mines on Tuesday (opened it Wednesday). It was a 5 hr drive each way, so we had to start really early, but there were already a lot of people digging when we arrived at 10. Only one of the two piles had been replaced, although they are trying to get the second pile replaced before the middle of October. Word seems to get ou

    Aurora NC finds

    My wife and I made our way down to North Carolina for the Aurora Fossil Museum's Fossil Festival last weekend. Overall it was a pretty productive trip and we came away with well over 1000 shark teeth, some nice shells, lots of ray teeth, some shark, fish and cetacean verts, small cetacean teeth and a bucket of coral pieces. We heard many of the regulars say that the tailings weren't as productive as other years, but I saw quite a few nice specimens being collected. A few of the larger teeth, most of ours were damaged, but some of the colors are great: Lots of s

    More Aurora NC Micro fossils for ID

    I have yet again more Aurora fossils that I can’t identify. I would appreciate any help with identifications, these should be the last of the unknowns and I’ll create a Member Collections post about my best finds but first it would be nice to know what these are. Sorry for no scale but the diameter of the circle surrounding most photos is 10mm. 1. This one is very odd, I have no idea. 2. Fish tooth I’m guessing. Can you tell what kind. I would not want to get bitten by it. 3. This one’s larger than most of the fish teeth, about 3-4mm It’s als

    NC Miocene micros

    Went through about half a pint of the sifted matrix I brought home from Aurora. There were shark teeth as I had expected, way more urchin spines than I would have guessed and some small coral like pieces I'm not sure exactly what they are. Nice sample including the pieces in the top left I am trying to identify: Tried taking pic with clip on micro lens for the phone:

    Aurora NC jawbones?

    I was looking through all the bone fragments my wife and I found in Aurora, NC recently and noticed 2 of the pieces had evenly spaced notches along one side. The only thing I could think of is split jawbone fragments. Thoughts?
  7. 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.

    Tiger shark tooth

    From the album: Sharks

    The tiger shark is still around today. Their unique teeth are very good at cutting through tough turtle shell - their favorite prey. Their teeth also happen to work on about anything else that can fit in their mouths.
  9. 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.
  10. #1. Not sure age #2. Not sure age #3. Pliocene/miocene #4. Pliocene/miocene #5. Not sure age #6. Not sure age #7. Not sure age #8. I believe Cretaceous?
  11. 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.
  13. 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.
