    Crocodylus or Gavialis tooth?

    I had a question about the ID of croc teeth from the Solo River, Java, Indonesia. While the bigger tooth is more easily identifiable as Crocodylus siamensis (syn. Crocodylus ossifragus) just on the size and shape, I was unsure about the smaller one. Croc teeth from the Pleistocene deposits (not sure what formation it's called) are usually just sold as Crocodylus ossifragus, but Gavialis bengawanicus also appears to have been present. The smaller tooth does have prominent fluting, but I'm not sure if that's even a distinguishing feature. I haven't really seen a whole lot of Crocodyl

    Tiger Tooth identification

    Hi everyone I’m looking for a ID on this tiger tooth bought from Indonesia, it comes from Java island Solo. Possibly from which extinct tiger.
  4. Over a year ago, I blindly purchased a large impressive-looking tooth from a seller who didn't even know its ID simply because it was cheap. On arrival it broke, and after consulting the forum and facebook groups, the general consensus was that it was fake. Even museum curators I respected told me that it was a crocodile tooth joined to a fake root by someone who tried to emulate a mammal one. Having been (apparently)scammed and feeling snarge lousy, I was >| |< this close to throwing the fake root into the bin. But one other collector who bought from the same seller was vehement
  5. Hi just wondering what this shell might be that is in the matrix of my Indonesian (Java) Meg tooth. @IsaacTheFossilManmight have an idea?
  6. A friend has just shown me these and wanted to know if i could help on an id but i was stuck so have to ask you guys and girls. They were said to be found in marine deposits where sharks teeth are found but this is not 100% confirmed. he just tinks they are some kind of mammal claw but something does not look quite right has anyone else got any ideas ? there are 2 , photos are not great but hope you can help. Looking at the photos again they look a little like crab claw pincers but they are far bigger than any of the crabs found in the area....
  7. This has me stumped, Its fram Java Indonesia, it came in a lot with some small shark teeth, fish teeth and sting ray barb... i assume its fish related? looks like to small tusk like pertrusions, other guess was turtle related, would be great to hear from anyone thats seen anything like this before. Thanks
  8. From the album: Fossil Amber and Copal: Worldwide Localities

    This specimen weighs 36.0g and measures 65x40x25mm; several small fragments of plant material are contained within its translucent, reddish mass. Originating from the island of Java, this variety of copal is a fairly recent discovery; it is recovered from various soil levels, near to or on the surface of the rainforest floor. Rough specimens usually exhibit a thick, whitish exterior crust; Indonesian red copal is very soft, reacts readily with acetone, and can be scratched with a fingernail.

    Mystery Java Fossil - Croc? *HELP*

    Hi Guys, This one had me absolutely stumped. Found in Java, Indonesia.
  10. I have an old collection. I bought it from a fossil hunter in Java, Indonesia. The Length 20 cm. The Width 10 cm. The Weight 3 kg I don't know if it is a real Rhino Horn Fossil or fake. Please give me some opinion about this.
  11. Hi I got these teeth with some other fossil and i just dont know what they are from. They are Pleistocene I believe going of the other fossils from this area. (Indonesia, Java) Teeth numbered 1 and 2 are crocodilian, i know that much, they are clear to see and still have the serrations down either side... I am not sure if tooth 3 is also crocodilian? but maybe the surface/ details of the tooth has been polished (a real bad habbit they have over there) but teeth 4,5 & 6 are different. Their colours are very different, but again, I'm not sure. I think they have been polished al

    Rhino? From Indonesia. ID request

    hafa adai I recently purchased a flat of fossils from a guy I've been buying from in Indonesia (I know a guy... LOL). The ID card with this one said "rhinoceros", Miocene from Java, Indonesia. I have only ever seen rhino molars from there, which this is clearly not. Internet searches for rhino incisors however, yield teeth which are more tusk-like. I'm not really familiar with rhino dentition, so I thought I would appeal for assistance. Is it rhinoceras? thanks!
  16. Hi all, I was recently gifted a lovely fossil from a friend. He told me it comes from a reliable digger from Sangiran and it is a rhino horn. However, I have my doubts Rhino horns as I understand, are made of keratin which means they do not fossilize easily. Also, this fossil here is almost surely a bone. My friend tells me it is permineralized keratin but I am not sure if I agree with that. While there are indeed lines that flow from the base to the tip, I can't tell if they are carved or not My friend mentioned this is a river find, hence the
  17. I have here 3 Indonesian Megs. They were declared as no repairs or restorations. I now have them in person, and they look fine. I ran them under a UV, and I am suspicious of the dark spots on the roots, but I think that may be some of the top layer of the root leftover while the rest of the root eroded. Additionally, the second tooth may have some restoration to the left side of the serrations, near the base of the crown. I'd love some more eyes on this please, does anyone see any red flags? Thank you, Bellamy First Megalodon

    Great White - Indonesia

    I have here an alleged Carcharodon carcharias tooth from the Pliocene of Surabaya, West Java, Indonesia. It's 1.8 cm in length. I have my suspicions because it looks wide like a Meg. I'd like some further opinions. Thank you, Bellamy

    Indonesian Shark Tooth

    Hi everyone, I have here a 1" tooth identified as a Megalodon from West Java, Indonesia, allegedly a new creek locality. I know that smaller Megs may not necessarily have bourlettes, but there do not appear to be serrations. This could probably be explained by river wear. In any case, might this be a Meg, or could it be something else? Best, Bellamy

    Exotic Megalodon Dealers

    Hi everyone, I've been looking for a Megalodon from one of the more exotic localities in Asia. The problem is, most of the dealers I know stick to those originating from the United States. I've found some on various auction sites, but I don't wish to get into that because I'm not very experienced in spotting fakes and reconstructions. I would be more interested in someone who you've had fruitful dealings with. If anyone could PM me suggestions for dealers to contact regarding teeth from these localities, I would appreciate it. Thank you, Shayan
  22. Since this forum is often visited by new collectors. Note: intention for this post is not to hurt resellers, but caveat emptor: The market is currently flooded with megalodon teeth from West Java! Although the first specimens started to pop on the market already about 2 years ago or earlier, anyone nowadays still telling you megs from West Java are rare, is joking. It has become clear! There are millions of meg teeth in Indo-Australian archipelago, and the simple fact that they have been generally overlooked by collectors and resellers in the past decades and years, doesn't make J
