    Whale tooth from Chile

    Just got this 10,5 centimeter whale tooth (with Matrix) from Chile. What could the specimen ID be?
  4. Hello to all guys!!!, I would like to ask again for help in the ID of some teeth. I´ve been searching in a local university's museum for teeth of the original strata (Upper Paleocene), and I have found a very interesting set of boxes containing a bunch of different teeth, all labeled as "Scapanorhynchus sp.", maybe existing a missidentification. The question would be if any of you guys can ID the pieces and how to differentiate the Scapanorhynchus sp. from Striatolamia striata or Sylvestrilamia teretidens, the options I´m leaning for the ID of the teeth. I would also li

  9. Hello to all of you guys, a couple of weeks before i asked for help in relation with some shark teeth, and the help indeed was very nice! A couple days before i was back in field trip and found some more teeth from the same strata, and would need your help for the correct ID (hopefully at species or genus level), you guys are awesome!!! Here´s the list of the fossils (each step of the ruler is 2mm): 1) A tiny tooth with very small roots and 3 denticles, the central and main one is triangular and very oblicuous 2) A tooth with very triangular cusplets and
  10. Hello again to all of you guys , I´m in a huge need oh help to ID some mollusks of south central Chile. Currently these are storaged in the vault of a local university. I know taht the fossils in the images are not in the best conditions, but the outcrop itself sadly has been seriously reworked by a bulldozer machinery (they may be a little bit flattened). At least to a family or genus level ID should be nice considering how they actually are. The beds should be of the Miocene to Pliocene. But also theres a very minor chance of being from the middle to upper Eocene. Th
  11. Hello to all of you guys, I´m a newbie to the forum, so i would like to before anything, say hi to everyone here And with that already said, i would need some help with the identification of some fossils of Elasmobranchii, that I have seen near the coast of south central Chile. The fossils are 2 teeth and something else that I´m unable to ID correctly (I think maybe a vertebra? or some weird gastropod). The age of the sandstone that contains these should be around the Upper Paleocene. The fisrt tooth I think is from some (I think) sand tiger shark (so

    Penguin beak (Pliocene of Chile)

    I just ordered this piece which I was watching for quite a while as I wanted to add some more bird material to my collection. It's a penguin beak found in the Bahia Inglesa Formation, Atacama Desert, Copiapo, Chile (Pliocene, around 4 mya). It was listed as "Pelecyornis sp." but since that is a genus terror bird I don't think that ID is correct. After doing some google research I am more leaning towards perhaps Spheniscus urbinai or Spheniscus megaramphus or another species. But I am far from an expert on bird material let alone fossil penguins so I was hoping on some imput from

    New Titanosaur from Chile

  14. I have here an alleged Carcharodon hastalis from Chile. It is 1.85" long and 1.12" wide. After receiving the tooth, it looked a lot more like Isurus planus to me. The other party insists it's Carcharodon hastalis. At the very least, they insist it comes from Chile. To the best of my knowledge, Isurus planus isn't found in Chile. I've never heard of it anyway. Two questions, then. Is this Hastalis or Planus? And if it is Planus, might it be Chilean? Thank you, Bellamy

    Chilean fossils

    Hi guys, I don’t really know the Chilean fauna so any help would be appreciated. 1. Label is outdated so it should read Bahia inglesa fm, rather than huarra, however, I didn’t know the scientific name of a dogfish from here. 2. some sand tiger shark? Not sure of species or even genus 3. could be another sand tiger but could be a small hastalis? 4. Carcharhinus Priscus?

  17. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. Anyone else out

  19. Hello all Up for trade is this set of South-American teeth. It includes 11 Chilean and 4 Peruvian teeth. The C. chubutensis, Isurus desori and Carcharhinus cf. brachyurus (the last three are on the right side) are from Peru. The others (Megachasma pelagios, C. hastalis, Carcharhinus cf. brachyurus, Isurus retroflexus and a fish tooth labelled as dog fish (not sure if correct) and some unidentified teeth. The C. hastalis is just over 2 inch. The Megachasma pelagios is around 2 cm. The C. chubutensis is just under 2 inch and has a crack in the root, but is broken. More precise locati
  20. Hello all Up for trade is this Chilean Carcharodon carcharias. It was found in the Huarra formation, near Antofagasta. The tooth is just over 2 inch measured on the longest side. I want to trade this for trilobites, dinosaur, Crocodile or other reptile stuff, Kem Kem material, insects, fossil fish or something surprising. Unfortunately, I will not be able to send this piece untill the quarantine in my country is lifted.
  21. New remains of a large Ichthyosaur from the Lower Jurassic of the Atacama Desert have been described. The fossils although fragmented, consist of dentary and rostrum remains and at least 11 teeth. The remains are assigned to Temnodontosaurus sp due to the similarities. It is the first marine macropredator in the Lower Jurassic of Northern Chile and the first example of the genus in the southern hemisphere Otero, R., Sepulveda, P. 2020 https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S089598111930519X#sec6

    Some of my collection

    Hello gang, As promised this is where I will share specimens from my personal collection, my grandfather's collection, and the collection that was donated to the university I work for. The latter is interesting as it is literally boxes of rock and fossils, with no information and my university does not have a geology or paleontology department. I'll be updating it every so often. Enjoy! NOTE: Some of the donated items have old school "labels" on them. If you see initials or such that you recognize, please PM me, as I am doing my best to properly catalog the
