  1. Found in the Lee Creek spoils pile. Is this a whale vertebra or possibly a digit bone? The somewhat flattened and oval cross section kind of looks like images of whale digit bones to me, but I am far from knowledgeable about this. Bonus with this find is the shark tooth embedded in the concretion on the top of the fossil. Any guesses as to what it is?

    Small Lee Creek shark teeth ID

    Please help with an ID for these small teeth found in the Lee Creek spoils pile. Sorry for the poor image quality, but my cell phone does not take good pictures of tiny objects. Both teeth are approx. 5mm wide and 7mm tall
  3. Found in the Lee Creek spoils pile. Is this some sort of coral or a cast of a burrow? The item is tubular and was hollow at one point and filled with something that looks like obsidian or flint. Or maybe it was the other way around and the "filling" was covered by the material surrounding it? Maybe something geologic and not even a fossil?

    One more Odontocete? tooth, Pliocene

    One more. What throws me off about this one is the oval root base, when all several dozen other Odontocete teeth have a circular root base, and the wear pattern on the tip. Thoughts?

    odontocete teeth ID, Pliocene

    hello everyone, I am looking for some assistance in identifying two odontocete teeth from the Pliocene Yorktown Fm, Lee Creek Mine. The first photo shows the two teeth in question on the left vs a Kogiopsis sp. tooth on the right Are the teeth in question just Kogiopsis with the crunchy outer coating intact? Marine mammal ID isn't my forte. There are 3 photos each. Interesting that the second of these teeth almost has an opaline filling of the basal cavity. Any help is greatly appreciated! TOOTH #1 TO

    "Dusky shark" Yorktown Fm., Lee Creek Mine, Beaufort Co., Aurora, NC, USA
  7. I was able to acquire a nice Giant Thresher (Alopias Grandis, non-serrated form) that came from Lee Creek (Aurora, NC). It's the third in my collection. I'm curious to know how rare/uncommon they are from that location. Giant Thresher shark teeth seem to be found with some regularity in South Carolina, although they be from the Oligocene. Giant threshers are also found in Maryland along Calvert Cliffs (Miocene). I've seen a few other Giant Threshers from Lee Creek in other people's collections and have heard about a few others. Curious to know, especially from some of the long-
  8. I'm going through my vertebrate collection and making sure the labels are correct before I start forgetting everything haha. I have here two small bones that I found from the Lee Creek Mine in NC. I collected the white one from the Pliocene Yorktown Fm, a marine fauna. The brownish one was collected from mine spoil, so it could range from Miocene-Pleistocene. I have them tentatively identified as marine mammal phalanges, but these are somewhat out of my comfort zone. Thoughts? I"ve tried to show the two bones from all angles. If better or additional photos or needed,

    Whale tooth ID

    Found this tooth at a local rock store. It's about 2.7 cm long. I have no locality information, but I think its preservation suggests its from Lee Creek. It has worn secondary cusps, indicated by arrows. Any information would be much appreciated.
  10. OK, these shouldnt be too hard. I have hunches, but not really strong on these types. First is from Belgrade mine, NC. Thinking alopias... These three are from Lee Creek. Not at all sure... Fairly certain these guys are alopias...
  11. Hi everyone! Little over a week ago I recieved some new bags of microfossil matrix and this time there was a bag with material from the Lee Creek Mine, Yorktown Formation, Aurora, North Carolina, USA (Miocene, 14,5 mya) This material is quite rich in shark teeth as I found little over 90 shark teeth in it. I have photographed a couple of them already and posted them in my microfossil topic. But since I doubt I will get many help with the identification of the teeth there I am going to repost the first batch of teeth here (I apologize for the repost admins) and upload the re

    Lee Creek Matrix Under A Microscope

    Hi. For Father's Day my kids got me an electic microscope. I have been picking through Lee Creek matrix that I purchased to get me through quarantine. I am really not familiar with smaller teeth so it would be greatly appreciated if anyone can confirm my ID. Enjoy the pics. For all the Dad's, I hope you had a great Father's day! This tooth is 2-3mm. I thought it was small tooth sand tiger but the root seems rather large. I have been all through Elasmo.com and I cannot find a match. The next 2 teeth cusps and the blade remind me of a mackerel but the root d

    Aurora Shark Tooth ID Help

    Hello. I found this tooth about a year and a half ago in the spoil piles outside the Aurora Fossil Museum. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify it? I think it might be a mako tooth (Isurus oxyrinchus?). Also, does anyone know why one side of the root is much smaller than the other? Is that damage? Or maybe due to jaw position? Thanks for your help.

    Lee Creek Dolphin Tooth?

    I have here a tooth from Lee Creek, Aurora, North Carolina. I believe it to be Kentriodon. It's a hair above 1". Does this seem accurate? If so, could it potentially be narrowed down further yet? Thank you, Bellamy

    Micro Matrix

    I have been spending the past covid months going through Lee Creek matix. I dont know what I would have done without it. I have found hundreds of things and still have a ton to go through. Since I post pictures last I took the advice given and purchased an aultrasonic cleaner. WOW, what a difference it makes. Thanks for the input on that @MarcoSr @Al Dente @ClearLake @CocoAnyway here are 10 unique finds that I need some guidence on. I appreciate any feedback! 1. Is this a fish tooth? To me it looks more reptilian. Dare I say Croc tooth. I know its not but I am still searc

    Aurora, NC - Squalodon?

    I have a dozen teeth from Aurora, North Carolina that I believe to be from the toothed whale Squalodon. Instead of uploading photos of that many, I'm uploading a few that are representative of the dozen and detailed photographs of three of these. For context, the first tooth here is 2.5" long and 1" wide at its thickest.

    Shark Teeth ID Help

    Hi. I found these two teeth in the Lee Creek matrix yesterday. I have my thoughts on what they are but I wanted to see if my thoughts are correct on them. Thanks in advance for any feedback. @Al Dente 1. I believe this tooth is a Paragaleus pectoralis - 3MM 2.I thought this was Squantina but now after posting the pictures I not sure. 2MM

    Odd Little Lee Creek Tooth

    I found this tooth in a bucket of matrix yesterday. It has the hint of cusplets on each shoulder and this kind of throws me. I have my own impression of the I.D. of this tooth but am looking for other opinions. I have thousands of Lee Creek teeth in my collection and have gone through countless gallons of matrix, but this tooth just looks odd to me. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
  23. Hope everyones week is going well. Over the past week I found a couple teeth and something that looks like a fried egg. I just wanted to get some confirmation regarding the teeth and I have no idea what the 3rd item is. Thanks for all the help. 1. I think this is symphyseal tooth but not sure. 2-3 MM 2. Thresher shark 3MM; not sure because the root seems to fat. 3. Fried Egg looking thing; It is the same on both sides 2.5MM

    Shark Tooth ID Help

    Hi. Hope everyone had a great week. I found this tooth this morning as I continue to go through more of the Lee Creek Matrix. I am somewhat confident that this is a Finetooth shark - Carcharhinus Isodon. I wondering if someone can confirm if I am correct on this one. Thank you so much for any feedback.

    What Kind Of Tooth Is Fish or Ray?

    Hi. I found this and at first I thought it was a ray tooth but I can not find any examples of it. Maybe because it is worn. This leads me to believe that maybe it is fish rather than ray. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
