  1. hemipristis symphyseal

    Self Collected at the Lee Creek Mine. This hemi lower symphyseal has great coloration.
  2. catticus

    Nice little C. catticus collected from the Lee Creek Spoil Piles. An uncommon find.
  3. Basking Shark

    Lee Creek Cetorhinus (Basking Shark) teeth are extremely rare. While the Oligocene specimens and some Miocene locations have been assigned to C. parvus and the later (Pliocene-extant) have been assigned to C. maximus; the Lee Creek teeth have not been assigned to species level. The west coast species from the middle Miocene Sharktooth Hill Bonebeds have been assigned as a new species C. huddlestoni (Welton, 2014); and is a very common tooth there.
  4. Squalodon

    Self Collected from sediments from the Lee Creek Mine on 12 June 2010.
  5. juvenile meg

    Self Collected from spoil piles from the Lee Creek Mine.
  6. mako

    Self Collected in the Lee Creek Mine
  7. Mako

    Self Collected from the Lee Creek Mine
  8. Isurus desori

    Self Collected in the Lee Creel Mine during my very first trip into it.
  9. 2" plus Lee Creek Mako Tooth

    Ok, I found this tooth in the Lee Creek mine in 2007. Over the years I have gone back and forth as to the species of mako; hastalis, oxyrhincus, desori. So now I am asking for your opinion. I don't think I have posted this tooth on here before so I hope you all enjoy, I think it's a beauty. I would like to post this one on the collections area, but I want to be much more sure about a positive species before I do so. It is just ovewr 2" ( about 2 1/8) and has great color.
  10. A few Lee Creek unknowns

    Hi all, This is my first attempt at posting photos, hope it works. Anyway, I have a few Lee Creek vertebrate fossils that I'd like some help identifying. I got them a couple of years ago on Ebay as part of a group of miscellaneous Lee Creek vertebrate stuff- various shark teeth, some bony fish remains, and several small cetacean teeth and bones. Here's what I've been able to figure out: 1. Unknown bone. Not sure if this is fish or mammal. I am hoping the distinctive "pebbly" surface on one side is diagnostic, otherwise it is destined to remain as "chunkosaur" (or whatever the mammalian equivalent of "chunkosaur" is.) 2. I am pretty sure this is a bird bone, but is anyone willing to hazard a more specific guess (even to the family level)? I am also an avid birder, so having an ID'd bird fossil would be a cool way to unite the two hobbies. 3. Unknown tooth. It doesn't seem to be shark, but I don't know what it is. There is no trace of serrations along the edge. Thanks for any help you can give!
  11. Lee Creek Micro Teeth

    I recently put together a pair of gemjars containing matching samples of teeth from Lee Creek. I'd like to be able to send a list of the contents to the friends I put them together for. I think the middle tooth (#6) in each jar is from a tiger shark, and I know that #10 is a ray of some sort, and #8 and 9 are skate teeth, but I don't know the rest. I'd appreciate it if one (or more) of the many folks here who knows the fauna could identify the lot. Here's the set: Thanks for looking!
  12. Is This One Isurus Retroflexus?

    I think that this one is Isurus retroflexus, the long-finned mako. Do you agree? I can't find a ringer for this one on-line.
  13. Lee Creek Shark Tooth For I D Please

    This is one of the smallest shark teeth I've ever found. It comes from the matrix sent to me by sixgill pete. Can anyone tell me which species it is? Thanks.
  14. Looks Like A Wahoo

    Another nice surprise from sixgill pete's Lee Creek matrix showed up on my plate last night. I was baffled until I searched on Elasmo.com, and found what I believe is the correct ID for this neat tooth. It looks just like the Wahoo tooth pictured there. I have never seen one before, so I'd like to have my tentative ID confirmed. The photo montage includes all four sides, and top and bottom. Thanks
  15. Is This A Crab?

    I found this in sixgill pete's Lee Creek micro martix. My little 'point and shoot' has trouble with depth of field, but I think you can see the features that made me think crab. I find all sorts of crab bits in this matrix, so why not a body?! If I am way off, let me down easy, I have a vivid imagination!
  16. Two Shark Teeth For I D Please

    Here are two more shark teeth that I am not sure of. And this one I was hoping was a 7 gill shark tooth, but I wonder if it isn't a posterior Hemi or something... What do you all think? thanks for looking.
  17. Is This A Sea Star Fragment?

    I found this in the Lee Creek matrix sent to me by TFF member sixgill pete. Thanks Don! It looks like a ray ( starfish arm) frag to me. Any ideas? Thanks for looking
  18. Unknown Cetacean Tooth...

    I found this this past weekend... I was told that it is a dolphin tooth, but have never seen one like it before. Please let me know what you think... -Bill H.
  19. Let me first say im doing this all from my smartphone, so sorry for any bad pics. I bought a micro camera attachment for my phone for $20 a few weeks ago and im still ironing out the details of how to get a presentable picture from it, but here's my first attempts. I found this little guy last night while sifting some Lee Creek micro matrix. I was pumped when i found it in my first couple of scoops. I thought it to be a Whale Shark tooth, but now after seeing some pictures im not so sure. Any help is appreciated guys!
  20. Tooth Ids - Lee Creek Micros

    Hello Everyone, I was hoping someone could help me identify two teeth I found in some Lee Creek reject material I brought home from the Aurora Fossil Festival this year. Both teeth are approximately 1cm in length and have rather large roots for their small size. Here is the first tooth: At first I thought maybe a whale shark or possibly a basking shark, but really have no clue. I'm hoping one of the experts could give me a positive ID. Sorry if there is not enough detail in the pictures above to make a positive ID, these little micros are hard to shoot. Here is the second tooth, which I really have no clue what it could be. Thanks in advance for any assistance with the IDs.
  21. Ray Tooth Id Needed

    Found this ray tooth in Lee Creek matrix. Could it be a pathologic female dasyatis?
  22. Palaeorhincodon?

    I was getting familiar with my new microscope and decided to look at some of my whaleshark teeth from Lee Creek matrix and I noticed one of them had cusp. I was wondering if it could be a Palaeorhincodon tooth?
  23. Is this tooth Parascyllium, Proscyllium, or Scyliorhinus?
  24. I have a tooth I found in some Lee Creek matrix a couple of weeks ago that is stumping me. As soon as I found it my first thought was Anomotodon, what the heck. Then while doing some research I found where a specimen labeled as Anomotodon cravenensis was ID'd by Case (1980) Here are a few pictures, any thoughts on this. Is this what I have? Any other thoughts on ID? EDIT ... the scale is in mm
