  1. After doing some research a few weeks back on the distribution of the extinct Haast's eagle (Hieraaetus moorei), I discovered there was a much larger array of large Accipitridae on island environments than I previously realized (the result of island gigantism) during the Pleistocene-Early Holocene. Sadly, many of these animals are now extinct asa result of direct human hunting or hunting of their food sources by the early-late Holocene. I've decided to make a quick list of all those I've identified, which hopefully can demonstrate the diversity these magnificent animals had during the Pleistoc
  2. The Crocodilians (Crocodilia) are a resilient group of reptiles, with the order originating around the Late Cretaceous 95 million years ago and still very prevalent globally in many aquatic ecosystems. But it was not too long ago that this group was even more diverse. Though way more diverse between the Paleocene-Pilocene eras between 64-2 Million years ago, the Crocodylomorpha (mainly Crocodillians) were still fairly diverse during the Pleistocene-Early Holocene eras - more diverse than they are today. This lack of diversity today is mainly due to the climate change that occurred between the

    Unknown fossils from Cuba

    Hi Guys! Hopefully someone can help. I found what I assume to be fossils of SOMETHING while snorkeling in Cuba this summer . I’ve asked around and nobody seems to be able to identify them. The curiosity is killing me lol they look almost like teeth or beak parts but I really have no clue
  4. While reading a book about Mesozoic reptiles by Dougal Dixon, I was dumbstruck to read to Jurassic deposits in western Cuba have yielded pterosaur fossils, including the rhamphorhynchids Cacibupteryx and Nesodactylus. Years later, however, I also found out that ground sloths, ammonites, flightless owls, rodents, plesiosaurs, thalattosuchians, and ichthyosaurs have also been found in Mesozoic and Pleistocene deposits in Cuba. Did you ask any paleontology and fossil fans when they first learned that Cuba has yielded fossil tetrapods from marine and Pleistocene deposits?
  5. Very rare find a Cuban Necronectes collinsi. This is only the third example I have seen come out of the limestone of the Canimar formation in the last 12 years.

    Is it a meg or a chub?

    I’m looking into this wonderful 5.59” Cuban tooth, but I’m having a hard time figuring out if it’s a meg or chub. It has cusps, but they’re minimal and not very obvious. Seller says it dates from early to middle Miocene, though that’s not very helpful in identifying this tooth. I’m thinking chub due to the cusps existing, but I’d like to gather more opinions on the matter.

    Bone identity?

    Found this bone washed up on the shore of Varadero Cuba. 8" long. Any idea what it belongs to?

    Cuban Meg

    It has been awhile since I have been on FF and decided I would post this beautiful Cuban Megalodon Tooth I finished cleaning up last week.
  9. Fossils of New Vulture Species Found in Cubaby Enrico de Lazaro, Previous, Sci News, Jan 13, 2021 "A new species of small vulture that lived during the Quaternary period in the Greater Antilles has been identified from fossils found in western Cuba." The paper is: Suárez, W. and Olson, S.L., 2020. A new fossil vulture (Cathartidae: Cathartes) from Quaternary asphalt and cave deposits in Cuba. Bulletin of the British Ornithologists’ Club, 140(3), pp.335-343. Yours, Paul H.
  10. 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

    Miocene Fish-Cuba ID

    Sorry for picture quality, but can anyone help identify this fish found in Matanzas, Cuba? The last picture with fish sitting on top of limestone block has lines drawn on it approximately 3” apart for some type of scale.
  13. Hi I was just at my aunts house and in her house I found a ammonite I asked her where it was from and she said she got it in Cuba which made me wonder what creatures lived in Cuba in the Mesozoic I found out In the Jurassic there where Pliesiosaurs, Ichthyosaurs and ammonites and lots of pterosaurs also there has been some dinosaurs too which surprised me because I thought Cuba was under water there’s a few remains of sauropods a Camarasaur and a Diplodocus like sauropod some more fragmented Sauropod bones and some bones of a unknown Saurischian also some unknown reptile bones have been foun

    Fossil found In Cuba

    I found this fossil in Guantanamo, Bay, Cuba. It was in the wall of a road cutout. I’ve looked online and been unable to find any as large. If anyone can tell me more information about it, that would be great. The hinges are intact and working. Thank you

    Going to Cuba: need Megs!

    Hello all, I'm going to Cuba in a few weeks and, if possible, would like to acquire some Cuban megalodon teeth while over there. I've done a little research but have only turned up what the formation is called that they are generally found in. Considering that I'll only have about 3 days there, I'm not against just buying them from locals if they're available. Does anyone have any knowledge of where I should go outside of the formation itself (not even sure if I'd have access to it)? Anyone know if its possible to dig there?
  16. This tooth is the biggest tooth I have seen come out of Cuba, it is a huge primary tooth. I will have to get Matty Swilp to restore the tooth when it arrives.
  17. Can any of the turtle experts give me any insite into this fossil turtle being offered to me in Cuba. Thanks

    Cuban Megalodon Shape

    Hi, I have this Megalodon tooth from Cuba and the shape is a little different than I've ever seen. It's a lower tooth at 5.24", can anyone give me insight on the shape of this tooth.

    Please Help ID- Cuban Fossil

    Please help me ID this fossil I found in Cuba. Thanks
  21. I found this tooth a few days ago, while walking around a limestone quarry in Cardenas, Cuba. I was digging through discarded pieces of limestone blocks, threw a large piece and the stone split showing me this beautiful tooth. It measures 5.015". This tooth is my nicest personal find and one of the nicest teeth I have seen come out of Cuba. I usually buy my teeth and consider myself super lucky to find this myself.
  22. This tooth was found in a limestone quarry very close to Pinar del Rio, Vinales Valley, in the western part of Cuba. The limestone in this part of the province is very fossil rich. It is known to contain fossil remains of prehistoric marine reptiles and mollusks. Tooth measures 4.01"

    Sea Urchin-Cuba

    Is this a common sea urchin. Found in cuba. My friend says they are a different than what is found in florida.
  24. Here are a few more fossil specimans from Cuba that are waiting to be picked up next week.
  25. Wondering if anyone has any idea what these fossils might be. Sorry for picture quality. They are from Cuba, same quarry they find the megalodon teeth. Lower-Middle Miocene. Any help would be appreciated.
