    Cetacean vert?

    Found this in the water near the fossil beach of Westmoreland State Park in Va. Seems like a whale / dolphin bone, but what part? Is it a vert piece? As always, thanks for the help.
  2. Hello, I found this bone cluster in a Miocene era beach deposit on the east coast of the South Island New Zealand. Appears to be ribs of some kind, 5 in total. Perhaps some sort of dolphin? Any help identifying the type of animal this came from would be much appreciated. Scale is in inches. Thanks!
  3. Hello everyone. I'm making my rounds across my different groups and forums, so if anyone has seen these photos before you'll have to suffer through them again. From June through the end of August I locked in on a concentrated area of sand tigers, makos, and my favorite mega-tooth shark: Otodus auriculatus. I didn't find one every trip out, but my most plentiful day gifted me 3, and my last trip out provided me with the largest tooth I have ever recovered from the garden state. I battled minuscule mosquitoes and a horsefly that was every bit horse as it was fly. Despite nature's bes

    Some curious bones

    Out hunting Monday. 1st time in a while. Low expectations. This is a challenging location to reach. In the 1st sieve , found a connected turtle osteoderm. That was nice... A number of items that could be teeth, but too beat up to identify. Shark teeth were Bull, Dusky, Tiger This request is about these 3 fossils: 1) I know the tympanic bulla Identification because of a great previous posting by @Harry Pristis.which I saved to my local disk. The find is fragile ans thin... likely in development pre_birth. Just wanted to confirm the identification..

    Aurora NC finds

    My wife and I made our way down to North Carolina for the Aurora Fossil Museum's Fossil Festival last weekend. Overall it was a pretty productive trip and we came away with well over 1000 shark teeth, some nice shells, lots of ray teeth, some shark, fish and cetacean verts, small cetacean teeth and a bucket of coral pieces. We heard many of the regulars say that the tailings weren't as productive as other years, but I saw quite a few nice specimens being collected. A few of the larger teeth, most of ours were damaged, but some of the colors are great: Lots of s

    Bands in Marine Mammal teeth

    I recently found a distressed canine in the Peace River. When possible I really want to identify all such fossil canines. The length is 1 and 1/8 inch. At the river I seemed to see (photo #1 & #2) "latitudinal banding" which means marine mammal. At home, I note that the root end turns to the side of the canine (photos #3 & #4), a characteristic that I mostly associate with porpoise. So , what is my question: Do all Dolphin/Porpoise teeth have such banding? The only reason I do not detect it on 95% of my Florida Dolphin/Porposie fossil teeth is that the banding

    Dolphin Vertabra? Corolla, NC

    While walking in the early morning in Corolla, NC 2 weeks ago I was distracted by a black bird that lead me to find this vertebra. I've never found anything like this at the beach so I thought I would ask for some help here. The only thing I've found that looks like it is here - scroll down to Xiphiacetus (Eurhinodelphis) bossi Dorsal Vertebra - Plate 7 - #5 https://www.fossilguy.com/gallery/vert/mammal/marine/eurhinodelphis/eurhinodelphis_miocene.htm Thanks in advance for any answers!

    Cadzand cetacean tooth

    Hi guys, not too sure how reliable the provenance on this is but it’s supposedly from cadzand, Netherlands, I got it in a lot of dolphin tooth, but the serration reminded me of squalodon which it obviously isnt but I was wondering if anyone else had any ideas
  9. Shellseeker

    Whoops!

    7 feet at Zolfo makes it very difficult (dangerous) to hunt the Peace River. I just got off the phone with my fossil hunting partner. Likely we'll go Monday trying those shallow spots we marked during season. That is because we are more stubborn than Bighorns. Makes me think back to Tuesday. We tried a location that has produced some miocene finds, but we had been there many previous times, and ignoring small teeth, there were few finds. Might be a croc tooth, but I would not argue if someone said gator. The reason I made this a FossilID thread

    Different ages, same site

    I was out hunting yesterday to a miocene_pliocene site that produces mostly small shark teeth with occasional surprises. In this instance there were three. 1st up... Upper molar Nannippus aztecus (11-5 mya) upper molar. Certainly Nannippus, likely aztecus based on size and location. Next , my unknown, a dolphin periotic earbone, 29 x 16 mm well worn and found in a miocene site. @Boesse And finally a Bison or Bos lower m3 unerupted enamel cap .. no roots. I was quite excited seeing the complete enamel in excellent unworn quality. But based on size

    Found Skull encased in rock!

    I' m a local photographer in Flagler Beach, FL. I frequent a local beach almost daily. I have come across quite an interesting find. Currently due to stormy weather causing rough waves and some higher than normal tides the rocks have been sliding down into the ocean and breaking apart. Well a wonderful treasure was exposed in one of the rocks. A skull. There is also a tooth and what looks to be bone vertebrate. I am in the process of excavating currently but would love to know who this skull belongs to. Any help is appreciated!!

    Small odontocete tooth

    I found this tiny tooth in a creek in Summerville South Carolina. Help with an id would be greatly appreciated. I’ve seen a couple other posts with a similar tooth where the consensus was undetermined species. Is this the case with this tooth as well? Thanks in advance!

    Peace River Visit X 2

    Out to the Peace River, FL twice this week, Tuesday & Saturday. Was busy tracking down an ID for what turned out be an eagle or large hawk toe bone. With that done and a trip out yesterday I thought I would combine the two visits into one trip report. The weather was perfect both days with temps in the mid 80*s. The water flow and level were excellent and visibility great. It was easy to see the bottom and anything laying there. A shot of the morning paddle to the dig site - Got there and started digging with the first good find being the phalanx or toe bone m

    Marine Bone

    Found on beach in outer banks. 10 inches by 12 inches Any help with id would be appreciated
  15. Got back to the Peace River Fl yesterday. When I set off in the kayak at 0820 am it was breezy and a chilly 53* F. The wetsuit was definitely needed if I was going to stand in the river all day. The water was crystal clear and with the sun out it made for a beautiful day. I took some photos after the sun had risen enough to clear the overhanging trees and light up the water. I got back to the gravel bed I have been working on my last few visits and found it undisturbed. Its not off the beaten path and with the water so clear I had feared others might have not
  16. I looked through the non-shark tooth finds and there was a lot I didn’t know. Hopefully some of this can be identified. 1. Dolphin teeth, can they be further identified? I’m not sure if all these are cetacean but at least some are. @Boesse I’d appreciate your input. 2. a large tooth, is it a big fish or something else? 3. An image of more fish teeth, all appear to be from the same type. 4. This variety of fish teeth is much more narrow. 5. the last fish tooth variety, flat and broad. 6. I have a fee

    Acquired Dolphin Jaw...

    Acquired this Miocene Dolphin Jaw section and have now had someone say is from a pinniped... I'm unsure on the mammal fossils, so some expert advice is needed... Item was purchased as follows: This Miocene fossilized dolphin jaw piece was found in eastern, North Carolina, USA. This fossil jaw piece measures approximately 3.39" from side to side. There is NO restoration or repair on this fossil.

    Whale or Mammal Tooth ID

    Fossil recovered inland Venice, FL. Located in Pleistocene material while digging pond. Equus, Camel, Tortoise, Alligator, and Whale teeth have been found in this material. This is the first time I have recovered this type of tooth. Other whale teeth I found nearby are 2x as long and 5x wider. Looking for some help with this ID. Thank you in advance. -Michael

    A couple of unusual periotics

    Hunting this week, and the highlights of one trip were 2 ear bones, one small dolphin and one larger. The dolphin is smaller than any I have ever found, @Boesse and then another, somewhat similar to Equus but a lot bigger, somewhat similar to mastodon but smaller. A couple of years back, @PrehistoricFlorida put a 2 inch mastodon ear bone up on online. I now wish I had purchased it for comparison purposes. Mastodon on the left of 1st photo. My new find is L 39 H 46 W 28 mm. There is not a lot of material out there on fossil mammal ear bones. Let me know if you see
  21. Hi! I found this bone on a remote, virgin beach in northern Iceland just the other day. I’m completely green when it gets to those topics and have thus no idea what it can have come from. Possibly a piece of a large fish or seal vertebra? Any ideas? Can anybody help me identify the bone?

    Whale tooth?

    Hey prob got a simple one, thinking it's a sperm whale tooth, but it is not hallow. I found it in in Sarasota FL in mostly a bunch of shell. I seen what looked like whale bone fragments, tiger shark teeth, Hastalis and great white teeth and randomly a rhino tooth, but not in the exact pile. It's 4.41"
  23. Founded at a land site in Sarasota. I think it's alligator, what kind of vertebrae are these

    Season Ending Hunt

    Yesterday I made one last trip to the Peace River to end this hunting season. When I checked the depth and flow gauges it showed both had increased as a result of recent rain but not enough to make a trip unsafe. The one caveat was the prediction of rain and possible thunder storms in my target area by 2 pm. It is really the threat of afternoon thunder storms almost everyday now that is the impetus to end the season. So, I got an early start and was on the river by 7:40 am with the intention of calling it a day by 2 pm. I headed back to the spot I have been digging in for the last four tr

    Oligocene Dolphin

    I just finished up preparation on this amazing Oligocene dolphin. It is from the Ashley formation and is a real beauty. I made the decision not to completely remove it from the matrix, as I believe it is more aesthetic this way.. It was missing the last 3 inches of the pre-maxilla so that had to be restored but we did find a few other teeth in the matrix.
