    Possible shark tooth

    Found this on the pacific coast of Costa Rica, I know it’s not rare to find teeth on the beaches here however this has been weathered down so it’s smooth. Me and my friend are in a debate about what it is so any opinions or validations would be appreciated. I personally think a very old meg tooth
  3. From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    6.4g specimen measuring 40x25x14mm (see related entry). This is incredibly-rare material, with next to no information available on it; this copal originates from sandstone deposits and can be found both in-situ and ex-situ. This particular specimen was recovered from a farmer's field in rural Costa Rica many years ago, and is part of a small lot of similar material; unfortunately, the specific location of the deposit this specimen came from is unknown. This material is noticeably harder than Colombian copal, but still reacts to acetone; the exterior of this piece has a slight layer of sandston

    Fossil from Costa Rica

    My 7 year daughter found this fossil in a river in Costa Rica. I am not sure if it is old. I think is a Bovidae tooth. Could you help me with identification? Thanks!!

    Wood or Bone in Costa Rica

    I found this fossil on our property in Puriscal, Costa Rica. I found it on the ground after moving some dirt from the berm next to a ditch. This ditch was dug by hand for us several years ago. The previous owner backhoed this area to flatten it. but couldn't go any farther due to the enormous rock. I am posting here because I want opinions if this is petrified wood, or bone. It measures about 10cm long, diameter about 8cm. There is a crystal formation on one end.

    Shark tooth?

    Was recently in Costa Rica and found these on the beach. Have found many black sharks teeth in the Carolinas but wasn’t sure if these were also? Any info would be greatly appreciated. TIA

    Is this a tooth or is this nothing?

    Was on holiday in costa rica 6 months ago and found this on the beach at the end of a small estuary. I guess it washed down to the beach, I'm pretty sure it's no aquatic animal tooth and I'm not even sure if it's a tooth. My only guess was crocodile but not even sure on that theres no look of enamel. Possibly a bit of bone that's been weathered into this shape. Any ideas? Struggling to add pictures because of the size limits The piece is around 2.5 inches long 1.25 inches wide

    Fossil ID

    Hey everyone, this is is my first post, and I am not a fossil expert by any means. Yesterday I found this bone on the beach, and I'd like to find out what it is. I am on the Southern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.

    Central American beach tooth

    Hi there, I know very little about fossils but on a recent trip to the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica I stepped on a small tooth in the sand. Without thinking I assumed it was shark due to where I found it, but looking at it I then thought it was a dog's tooth, but it doesn't look like that either. It's white and extremely porous, it was found at the top of the beach on top of the sand so it was probably baking in the sun for quite some time. The beach is not often frequented by people, it's a remote area of the country, but there are stray dogs in the area and it's known to be shark infested w

    Found a shark tooth

    Hi all. Im sure this is common and boring, but just a bit curious about what I found on the beach in Costa Rica. It measures about 2" each way. Shark tooth? It is totally a rock now. Thanks
  15. While on vacation in Costa Rica in 2009, I spotted some fossil shells in situ and am hoping someone might know their age or formation. The site is called Playa Limoncito, on the Pacific coast of Puntarenas province a couple of miles south of Tarcoles. The tour guide was aware of the fossiliferous rocks along the beach, but he didn't know how old they were. The exact species are probably unidentifiable from the cross-sections, but I am hoping that someone might know what geological formation is exposed or the approximate age.
  16. I will be in Quepos Costa Rica next week. I have heard there are an abundance of shark teeth along the pacific coast. I have checked for prior postings on this forum but I did not find many leads. Google searches have given some Info, but again, not much besides claims owned by universities. Any info would be appreciated! Thanks!

    Costa Rica Trip Nov. 2014

    Just returned from the wonderful country of Costa Rica. The trip was to celebrate my grandmothers 80th birthday! Being this was a family trip, I had limited time for any "back country" explorations, missing too many suppers would not have gone over well!! So I decided I would take day trips to as many beaches as possible, and consider all info collected for a future trip if anything really caught my eye. We were staying in a villa in Manuel Antone. I walked the local beaches all the way up to Quepos and paid special attention to low tide coral that would trap anything washed up. The current
