    Pleistocene Mammal Tooth

    Found this tooth the other day while combing the beaches of Galveston for shark teeth and fossil crabs. Beaumont formation. Galveston, TX. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Galveston tiger shark

    From the album: Galveston Fossils

    Spotted this one at night - best way to beat the heat during the Summer, but makes hunting much more difficult than it already is in Galveston. Tiger sharks appear to be less common than Carcharhinus; this is from the extant species: Galeocerdo cuvier.

    Galveston shark tooth

    From the album: Galveston Fossils

    Razor sharp sandbar shark tooth. Lovely dark blue when it was still wet.

    Sandbar shark tooth

    From the album: Galveston Fossils

    After drying out, some teeth can change their color, typically getting a bit lighter.

    Galveston shark teeth

    From the album: Galveston Fossils

    Found 3 teeth this weekend trip. Galveston shark teeth are very hard to find (for me). These were all found on the main island (not Bolivar). The top two I believe are the sandbar shark (C. plumbeus) and the lower one is a tiger shark (G. cuvier).

    Do you see the shark tooth?

    From the album: Galveston Fossils

    Spotted this one at night - best way to beat the heat during the Summer, but makes hunting much more difficult than it already is in Galveston.
  7. Found these teeth several days ago on Bolivar Peninsula,TX (Holiday Beach subdivision). My understanding is that shark teeth can be difficult to ID down to exact species, but am curious nonetheless (my guess for the bigger one was bull, other two mako or lemon). Thanks in advance for any expertise!

    Great hammerhead shark tooth

    From the album: Sharks

    Lower anterior from the modern Great Hammerhead: You don't see many teeth from this location - they're hard to find (somehow, I found this one at night! It was on the beach right next to the hotel.).

    Fish Skull Cap/Plate?

    Hello, found this last Saturday at a beach in Galveston Island, Texas. Other fossils I’ve found there, are from the late Pleistocene (only around 20,000 years old). They come from the Beaumont Formation. I know this piece of bone is almost certainly from a fish. Does anyone recognize what bone this is, and from what species? It has a very weird shape, and something tells me that this is probably from a skull, possibly something similar to a sea robin skull plate. Measures around 4.75 cm (1.87 inches long)

    A Physicist's Collection

    While my prime focus is essentially learning how to accurately describe Nature in the precise language of mathematics, I've always been intrigued by natural history - it's actually what started me on the path to physics. The sort of interrogation that paleontology practices provoked me to think and question even further, down to the fundamental science which makes it all work. Collecting fossils has brought a large amount of enjoyment to my life, and is often a welcome distraction from what can sometimes be straining work. The knowledge that I accumulate along the way is also part
  11. My son and I have have been finding a few sharks teeth in Galveston that have washed onto the beaches. Does anyone know the age or the formation that these teeth are washing up from?

    Found in Galveston, TX

    Hello everyone, I found these two pieces in Galveston, Texas and I am looking for someone to help me ID them. I am not well versed in fossils so I came to this site for help. Thanks!

    Pleistocene Texas Mammal tooth

    Posting for a friend, this tooth was found on the Texas gulf coast. Not sure what mammal this is from. Any help appreciated.

    Hammerhead shark tooth

    From the album: Galveston Fossils

    Close-ups of the large hammerhead tooth found on Galveston Island, TX. It has very fine serrations. Probably zygaena. Scale bar = 1 cm. Found 8/10/19.

    Mystery fossil from a newbie

    Does anyone have any idea what this might be? I found it on the beach Galveston Island, Gulf side west. February 2020 on a grey and windy day. I am new here, where ever we have traveled my head has always been down in the hope of finding new treasures. To hold a relic of ancient times in your hand is something very special.
  16. Found this in the same spot I found a little shark vertebrae and a small bit of bone. Pretty sure it is Pliestocene. I thought it was a tooth of some sort, (Ptychodus?) but now I am not sure....it may just be a bit of shell. Any confirmation help will be very appreciated! Thanks!!
  17. Went for a quick two day Galveston get-away. Weather was PERFECT.....75 degrees. Gotta love Texas Winters....and then it dropped to 30 and we had snow flurries the night we got home. Yeesh. So I went to a few spots that were recommended to me to find shark teeth, crabs and other fossils. No luck on the shark teeth, sadly,, nor the crabs, even more sadly.. but I did finally have a little luck at the last site. I was super excited to find a lovely small vertebrae and a bit o bone! Pleistocene era bits, from what I understand of the Galveston bay area. Also found a couple of interesting hash pl
  18. Hello, fellow Fossil Forum members. Last summer I found this bone fragment in Crystal Beach, Bolivar Peninsula, Texas. The fossils from the upper Texas coast are from the very late Pleistocene Beaumont formation. At first, I didn’t think anything of it, other than it just being a bone fragment. But now I’m thinking it might be a very worn down claw core from some animal. But I’m not sure, it could just be a plain old bone fragment. So let me know your thoughts on this specimen. Front view- Specimen measures 30 mm (1.2 inches) long side view back view- showin

    Galveston Haul August 2019

    From the album: Galveston Fossils

    Over three days, I found a few beach treasures. I found a couple of ray plates ( the "v" shaped one is from an eagle ray), a pufferfish/parrotfish mouth plate, three shark teeth, and a couple of bones likely from a turtle. Scale bar = 1 cm.

    galveston shark tooth ID

    Hey y'all, got back from a trip to Galveston yesterday. I found a few neat things that I'll post in a new album later. I'm not sure about this shark tooth, though. My initial thought was dusky or some carcharhinus. However the nutrient groove reminds me of sphyrna. The tooth in question is the larger brown tooth in the pictures. It has fine, even serrations, and a deep nutrient groove. The last three pictures include a sphyrna tooth for comparison. Thank you!

    Beach Shark Tooth

    Galveston shark tooth ID

    Hey y'all! I need help with this one shark tooth I found in Galveston, TX a couple of years ago. I initially thought lemon, but I'm not sure anymore. Any insight would be much appreciated! The tooth measures almost exactly 1.5 cm from root to tip. To me, it closely resembles a tooth also from Galveston (3rd, 4th pictures). However, it's missing serrations. It's possible they're worn off as the root is diminished as well. I think it's possible it could be a hammerhead. The blade seems too flat and broad at the root to be lemon.
