    Milnerton Beach: tooth or just bone?

    Hi all, On my trip to South Africa, I went fossil hunting at some point (trip report hopefully coming soon). I went to a beach in Cape Town called Milnerton beach (famous for its extinct giant white (aka mako), great white and meg teeth). I also found a few other things, namely a few undefined bone pieces. Anyways in those bone pieces I found this one. It's kind of reminding me of some really thin mammoth tooth, maybe a piece of it? The third pic looks like a chewing surface. Have I really found something cool, or is my imagination just toying with me? Also, does anyone
  2. I collected this piece washed up onto my beach where I have previously found anything from Miocene fossil shark teeth, acheulean period stone tools to Pleistocene horse teeth. It has an interesting symmetrical shape and reminds me of a wolf's face. Not that easy to photograph. Photos below are of all 'sides'. Any help with ID would be fantastic. Thanking you in advance.
  3. Hi below are some gorgeous teeth found this week on a Cape Town beach. Please note not all teeth were found by me - some were bought from other lucky local hunters. I suspect the second large tooth might be a transitional Mako feel free to let me know what you think.Feel free to message me if you want any more info on the teeth. (Please excuse rusty calipers)

    Dolphin humerus?

    Picked up on beach along with numerous whale verts and bones. Very dense & heavy, with defined (yet worn) ends. Closest match I could find is a dolphin humerus... Any ideas are welcome.
  5. Wynand

    Wood or animal?

    Distinctive pattern on outside surface. Outside surface is curved and seems part of larger circumference. Material is very dense and cannot be scratched with metal. Break edges on the inside is very square. Milnerton Cape Town, South Africa

    Astragalus

    Found a fairly large astragalus, which I suspect might be from the Giraffidae family... Any takers on a more accurate ID?
  7. Hi there TFF! I am really hoping somebody here might have some information in regards to hunting fossilized shark teeth in South Africa. The only location I have been able to dig up (no pun intended) online is on Milnerton beach however I am wondering if anyone has had any luck on other beaches here in South Africa. Thank you in advance!

    More fossil? Bivalves from Milnerton

    Hi all, I found those bivalves on Milnerton beach (Cape Town, South Africa). The beach is known to have fossil shark teeth and whale bones, but I don't know if they have fossil seashells. They do have modern ones. Those shells, because of many different features, do make me think that they are fossil. Anyways, I'm interested in 2, if not 3 things: • Species • Fossil or modern • (if fossil) how old If this species is (locally) extinct, then I think I can quite confidently put them down as fossil, but otherwise I'm not sure. The things that make me think t

    Tooth? (very worn)

    Collected this on a beach where a Miocene river entered the ocean, thus finding many land animal fossils washed up on beach (previous finds: African mammoth molar & tusk pieces). Probably not to clear on some of the photos, but has a flat bottom with an indentation. At the bottom of the indentation there is a small channel that runs all the way through the piece. Around the indentation, the piece is build up in concentric (and elliptical) layers.
  10. This one had me stumped for a while, until I saw a full penguin humerus bone on display at a museum. The humeral arterial sulcus being very evident! This one is broken in halve, which would have made it about 12cm in total length. Due to location and size, believing that this is Palaeudyptes Gunnari from Eocene period (56 to 33.9 million years ago)
  11. Good day to everyone! Thought I’d share some the teeth found on Milnerton and Big Bay beach here in South Africa. Any help identifying would be appreciated - I’m still relatively new so the more worn and broken teeth have me clueless. More pictures to follow!

    Teeth ID required

    Picked up two fossils. Same size at 4cm (1.6 inches). One is definitely a shark tooth, but which species? The other I suspect to be a mammal (herbivore) incisor, BUT NOT SURE? Any help/suggestion appreciated...

    Bone fragment

    V-shaped bone fragment with a distinctive groove running all the way around the outside. Enough to ID which animal and which bone? Milnerton, Cape Town, South Africa
  14. I was given this Megalodon tooth that comes in just under 2”. It was found along Cape Towns West Coast and will make a nice addition to my own finds. regards Pamar. I believed the root to be broken but noticed two symmetrical dimples on the top - I haven’t seen this on meg teeth before does anyone know what they are?
  15. Decided to spend a couple minutes searching some of my favourite spots alone Big Bay beach in Cape Town and came away with some megalodon teeth fragments,a mako and a whale eardrum. If anyone wants clearer pictures or wants to see some of my other finds from searching this months feel free to pm. regards Pamar.

    Large Mammal bone fragment?

    Good day all, I’m fairly new to the hobby but have spent many hours coming Cape Town beaches(South Africa) in search of fossils. I Know both aquatic and land mammal fossils wash up on the beach and would like help identifying my latest find if it is even a fossil at all.It appears to be a bone fragment of some sort.i will continue to add more photos. Thanks P.
  17. You can look for them, just not collect them, right?

    My finds in Cape Town

    During my holiday in South Africa, I found out about a beach called Lagoona Beach where you could find shark teeth. So today I spent about 2 hours hunting for fossils at the beach, and these are my finds. I found loads of chunks of cetacean bones including a large whale vertebra, a partial rib and a massive chunk(that maybe one of you guys could maybe ID). I only found one little shark tooth, I’m guessing it’s a Mako shark tooth. However one of the other collectors there found a Megalodon tooth which I didn’t expect. But overall I’m quite happy with my findings. And South Africa is an amazing

    Kindly help with I.D.

    Any help with an I.D. of the object in the pics will be greatly appreciated. Was collected in the surf in Cape Town, South Africa, where I often pick up fossilized shark teeth, horse teeth, bone fragments, earbones, etc. Have not found any similar object before. Thanks.

    Unknown mammal tooth fragment

    This was picked up on a beach of the Atlantic Ocean near Cape Town among washed up gravel where I often find fossilized Mako and Great White shark teeth from the miocene epoch. It measures 4.2cm in lenth. Any response will be appreciated. Thank You.

    Cape Town fossiling!

    Hello fellow fossil hunters, After one month, sorry for the delay, here it finally is: my trip report of the fossil hunting in Cape Town, South Africa! First off, I just wanna say this: before my trip to SA, I asked here whether it was possible to hunt there. Everyone said that SA had strict laws on fossil hunting, and that I would have no chance there. Obviously I was disappointed, yet also confused, because on Fossiel.NET (Dutch version of TFF), there were two locations with lots of info about them in SA, and they didn't say anything about the law. After that, on Inst
  23. Hi all, During my May holidays, I will be going to South Africa for a safari! I am very excited about the trip. We are also going to spend a few days in Cape Town, and I saw that it was possible to hunt for fossils there (finds include sharkteeth, like megs or great whites), on the beaches Big bay beach and Milnerton Beach. https://english.fossiel.net/sites/fossil_site.php?plaats=287 But I remember hearing that fossil collecting in South Africa is forbidden. But that surprises me, because nowhere on the link above does it say that it's forbidden to hunt, in fac
