  1. Kayaked out of Plum Point/Breezy Point this morning to do so searching. Almost right away I found a nice little cow shark tooth and a big hemi, then just a little later saw a small Meg sitting right on top of the sand. Love the complete Atlas vert as well, my first in that position!
  2. I arrived at the boat ramp early yesterday morning to find half the parking lot underwater from an abnormally high tide, plus heavy rains 2 days prior. I thought this might make collecting tough but I launched my kayak anyway and headed for the cliffs. I figured there would not be as much beach to collect on but I was not expecting water 2ft deep right up to the cliffs! Whenever I'd find a little spit of sand that I could actually walk on I would pull up my kayak and do some searching. I found a few small teeth this way. Later in the day as the tide started receding an
  3. Recent trips. Weather has been warm, so the water is still warm. Hitting my usual spots, doing well on cowshark teeth (happy! thought the 4th was a broken one but the two pieces don't match up) and finally found a decent, nice (almost 2") mako (been a while). Bunch of non-descript gray shark teeth, skate teeth; fewer angel shark and drum teeth than usual. Peculiar tiger shark(?) tooth; not flat like usual, big almost L-shaped root with a bump/boss at middle (not as pronounced as those bumps/bosses om big sand tiger teeth.

    The Creekend Warrior Collection

    Been at it for about a year now and I try to hit the creeks at least twice/month if I can help it. The "loose" pics are either newer finds that haven't made their way into the display yet, or finds that have their own display. Most of these were rescued from the Gainesville area. Some are from the Peace River & Joshua Creek, as well as Manasota, Caspersen, Venice & Fort Clinch beaches. I was also lucky enough to discover a previously unknown spot VERY close to home, while scouting one day! Dr. Hulbert (w/ UF) confirmed it is a new spot, but was reluctant to c
  5. Some of the stuff from recent trips. I have had a great year for cowshark teeth @Fin Lover ! One particular spot has produced the best, some even intact. My "usual" finds are sand tiger teeth; most of these, except the biggest, have sharp cusps. And another spot produced mako/ great white teeth. (Some glitches with my scanner; not the image I had edited(?)) May append another later. Weather has been great, cool in the morning, warm with low humidity in the afternoons. Finally getting some rain (too late for my garden) and washing out some teeth and other stuff. Fishing has been goo

    Front/upper Cow or tiger debate?

    Please help me on the id of this tooth - I have narrowed down to likely being tiger upper or cow shark upper - can’t decide which. It’s slightly worn and from aurora material about 6 years ago.
  7. Fossilitis-19

    Tiger shark?

    Found in Tampa area likely from shell pit. Haven't found one of these, is it tiger shark? Its decent size for what I've found in other species. Appreciate thoughts!
  8. Have made several trips, lots of teeth (mostly small and broken), but have done better than usual on cow shark. Nothing particularly dramatic. A few interesting things will post ater for ID. Generally mostly sand tiger per usual (and a few at top left not clear what they are to me). Not as many with cusps, some sites were gravel and shell bit holes; a long rough history of washing in the sand perhaps. Highlights (second) some verts, bunch of angel shark teeth, lots of drum teeth, a few sand tiger parasymphysials, one pretty just over an inch mako, and three cow shark
  9. Hunting has been slow for me (Covid has sent a lot of competition out on the beaches!) The photo is from about a dozen trips, several with No teeth. I was lucky to find a few mako teeth, including one massive one at about 2" but tipped. I found less sand tiger spikes than usual, but one pretty cowshark (rare here). Maybe after the holidays I'll get out more. Merry Christmas everyone and good luck even to my "competitors"!

    a new Rapp beach

    Went at low tide to a small public beach on the Rappahannock. A few people laying on the sand soaking in the nice weather. One guy raking the sand, looking for shark teeth, fossils or maybe beach glass. I walked along in the water looking for teeth with faint hope, but was lucky! Although mostly just long rusted and tide- and sand- burnished metal bits, I did find some teeth including two NICE cowshark teeth (perfect compared to the broken rootless ones I'm lucky to find usually). Also found an interesting skate scute (small enameled spot in the center), a reddish sand tiger spike, a thre

    Hexanchus or Notorynchus

    I recently picked up three cow shark teeth with uncertain identifications. I can not be sure myself so I thought I’d get some help sorting this out. First one is 19mm and comes from the Pico Formation, Ventura County California. I believe it is Pliocene in age. I think it is a Hexanchus tooth but Notorynchus is known from at least one So Cal formation similar in age according to fossilworks. It is missing the largest cone. Even though I lean 6 Gill, I’m almost hoping somebody thinks 7 Gill because a California 7 Gill would be sweet lol Either way, it’s a really pretty tooth.

    Very worn cow shark tooth?

    I found this small fossil along the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene exposure) in Maryland. My first thought was a jaw bone with teeth, but my working hypothesis now is that it's a very worn cow shark tooth (Notorynchus sp.). What do you think?
  13. I have found several smaller fragments before, but never an intact one. This one turned up at the end of a very long day and I fortunately spotted it as my son was shoveling matrix into the sifting table. I startled him mid-shovel by shouting "STOP!" when I saw a row of white points sticking out of some matrix. Son was just about to throw another shovelful on top of it. Nice reflexes by him to change course mid-air to avoid me (now shielding the tooth with my body - LOL). Worth it. :-) Definitely had potential but I didn't know how much root was going to remain. After some careful

    Hexanchus sp.

    This might be H. agassizi, I am unsure.

    Center cow Calvert cliffs

    Hi Randy here. A friend of mine found this tooth today along Calvert cliffs.its a center cow but is it pathological?

    Hexanchidae unindent.

    From the album: Cenomanian Shark Teeth, Tambov Oblast, Russia

    Hexanchidae unindent. (Grey 1851). I am unsure if a species of cow shark has been described from this region, as I do not have access to much Russian literature. Slant length is described by the length from the primary blade's tip to the end of the root. Width is indicated by the root length.

    Bayfront Park 01/25/20

    Me and a friend spent a couple hour searching and a little sifting and left with over 100 teeth! Here are the best from the trip, a couple of makos, a hand full of nice tigers, two bronze whaler?, two cow sharks, and a baby posterior megalodon tooth!

    rapp creek hunting

    Went out on a hot and humid morning to the creek, digging and sieving was nasty and the bugs were bad. Found the typical sand tiger spikes, lots broken, and some drum teeth, but surprisingly no angel shark teeth or vertebrae (washed away?) A bunch of white snail-like shells usually find similar bigger ones on the beach. Most interesting was a chunk of turtle shell (from the edge, bigger than usual) and a tooth (I find lots of busted ones, but this is almost intact. About an inch long, dull enamel half way up on both sides (one side cracked); the root is almost square and appears hollow).

    rapp creek hunting

    A little under the weather (and having truck trouble) but took a break for a few hours hoping to find more shrimp coprolites after recent thunderstorms. Humid, but not particularly hot, lots of frogs. Despite lots of digging in last week's spot, not much mixed in the gravel, mostly small broken stuff (one vert, one angel shark tooth, some drum teeth). I always wonder if I am 'mining' an area of the stream bed that was picked over 30 years ago. Finally found a mottled tiger shark tooth, relatively rare on that site. I have some small pieces drying but no strong suspicions of shrimp coproli
  20. After the Hybodontids, our program starts to transition toward the modern sharks. We introduce lamniform sharks and the cow sharks. We will not be able to spend much time at all on the Cow and Crow Sharks. They only get a brief introduction and a look at the teeth. Squalicorax is an important species for us even though we do not spend a lot of time on it. The students in first few classes we do presentations for will be going home with Squalicorax teeth from Morocco. We would like to spend more time on the Cow sharks eventually but we only have one tooth to show them and we will have to edit c
  21. Hi all, For whatever reason, I never got around to posting this. After a relatively unsuccessful day at Bayfront Park back in 2018, my dad showed me this tooth, unsure of what it was. He said he had found it while sifting in the creek that runs under the bridge near the entrance of the park. I had never really bothered trying around that area because it was so far from any cliff exposures, but I suppose he proved that some of the best finds may be where you least expect them. The second he pulled out this tooth, my jaw dropped. It is a FLAWLESS cow shark symphyseal. I hadn't had a

    cow shark

    Nice little symphyseal tooth.
  23. Out of action for a bit, but figured a good time to post what I have been collecting since coming back from Singapore summer of 2018. Starting with sandtiger shark teeth, since they are the most common here. Really like the little hook cusps which I seldom see on both sides on the biggest teeth. Cusps are most prominent (but often nubs) on the lateral(?) medium sized wider, root teeth. Symphyseal teeth are not that rare (wish they were cowshark!); often I think one is a split tooth until I examine it carefully; the roots are distinctive. The small teeth may include a few that are not sand

    rapp creek hunting

    My hip is bothering me, but we've had beautiful weather the last few days so I had to get out. Ended up being a short trip. Most of what I found was broken and small and about half as many teeth as usual, but I tried. Tape is in cm. A three inch ecphora, but missing a tail. Two or three skate stinger pieces. A nice but hard to scan cowshark upper, and pieces, some fin tilly bones, a few angel shark and drum. Lots of animal tracks along the creek but no frogs, crawfish or salamanders, just scud shrimp.

    Holy Cow!

    Found this beauty during a business trip to Southern California. My first complete cow shark tooth. My best personal find. Measures just shy of 2” from Capistrano formation.
