  1. My sons brought back about 3 gallons of ant hill matrix from their September trip to the Nebraska badlands. The matrix is from the Oligocene Brule Member of the White River Group. All I had to do with the matrix was to fine sift it to remove the fine sand. If you mouse over the pictures you will see the file name which has the specimen size and my best effort at identification. I rarely search terrestrial matrix so I don’t see a lot of terrestrial mammal and reptile micro specimens. If you can identify anything further or you see id errors please contribute to this post. Below is a g
  2. Pleistocene ray, fish, salamander, frog, snake, lizard and mammal specimens from matrix from the Melbourne Bone Bed from the Indian River, Florida. I want to thank John Sacha for supplying the matrix. This matrix was basically shells with fossil specimens. This was an extremely interesting matrix to search because of the large number of mammal and small reptile specimens. It also contained a good amount of amphibian specimens which I haven’t seen before in matrix. There were marine specimens also like fish specimens but the shark teeth were pretty beat and there were only a couple of ray speci

    Claw Collection

    Here are five new claws for ID please. These were all found in TFF member Sacha's new Merritt Island, Florida Pleistocene matrix. I have included the first one I found here again for comparison. Auspex said the #1 is "from a small species, possibly as small as a least bittern." There were several more claws in the matrix, but these were the most complete samples. It would be great if I could get IDs for them. Thanks for looking. 1 2 3 4 5 6
  4. After researching my more obscure fossil finds from Sacha's Rattlesnake Creek matrix, I am left with these four that I am not sure of. (E. Miocene - Coosawatchee Fm., Hawthorn Group.) Please have a look, and let me know if anyone has any ideas. Thanks for looking. 1) 2) 3) 4)

    Whose Tooth?

    I found this broken tooth in Sacha's Rattlesnake Creek matrix. I am wondering if it is from an alligator, or even a croc. Seems way too big for a fish tooth. Any help would be appreciated. Scale is in mm. Thanks for looking.

    Is This A Bird Claw?

    I just found this tonight in TFF member Sacha's Rattlesnake Creek matrix from Gainesville Florida. I took photos from both sides, top and bottom, and the joint end. Thanks for looking. Julianna

    What Kind Of Shark Tooth Is This?

    I found this broken tooth in TFF member Sacha's Gainesville, Florida matrix. I thought this one looks like a cow shark. I compared it to the examples sent to me by sixgill pete, and I can't see a difference. I don't see any serrations either. I am hoping it is not another fragment of some other kind of shark tooth, but I'd really like to know. Thanks for looking.

    Is This Nebrius Sp.?

    I found this tonight in Sacha's Rattlesnake Creek, Gainesville, Florida matrix. I know there is some Eocene in it as well as the more recent.
  9. I have been searching some matrix for micros from the MM quarry at Belgrade NC. Late Oligocene. I have lots to post but decided to start with the gastropods as I am without a clue on IDing these. ( I really need to spring and get the new volume from the NC Fossil Club on Fossil Mollusks) There are also a couple ray teeth and a cool bivalve. Looking at all of these by eye you cannot see the wear/damage. The usb microscope I bought is very cool. Takes great pictures with its 2 megapixel camera. First the Gastropods. 1- 5.73mm 2- 5.19mm 3- 4.97mm 4- over 6mm 5-3
  10. Here is the summary of my finds from the Florida matrix sent to me by TFF member jcbshark. It is his famous Cookie Cutter matrix! It contains fossils from the Miocene thru Pleistocene. Thanks again Jeff for this great matrix. I was very pleased to find these three Isistius teeth. Here is a selection of the shark teeth from this matrix. continued in the next reply
  11. I finally finished sorting and photographing my Rattlesnake Creek , Florida matrix finds. This matrix contains Miocene - Pleistocene fossils and some Eocene. Thank you Sacha for sending me this matrix. There were a lot of good finds and I had a hard time deciding which to show here. I don't have IDs for everything, and some I do might be wrong, so please feel free to correct me. I am here to learn. I found numerous ray teeth. Here is some of the ray material; Dasyatis Rhynchobatus male Dasyatis stingray spines continued in next reply

    Finds From Rattlesnake Creek

    Here are some of my first finds from the matrix sent to me by member Sacha. It is pebble matrix from the Rattlesnake Creek in Gainesville, Florida. Mostly Miocene. The colours of the teeth are really nice, and the preservation is excellent. I have attempted to ID what I can, but please correct me if I am wrong. First, here are some shark teeth. I think that 'A' and 'D' are Carcharhinus. not sure about the rest... Again, I think 'A', 'D', 'E', and 'I' are Carcharhinus. I had to add this one just to show the great colours! I realize that these are probably too worn to ID, but 'C' looks
  13. I have a pretty extensive collection of shark, ray, fish and other micros from sites all over the US, Europe, North Africa and Australia. You can see a very small part of my collection in my TFF posts at the below links. As I add new posts to TFF I'll update this list. I want to thank Earl M. for organizing my micro posts as shown below, which is a much more useful listing than in my original post: Paleozoic Silurian E. m. Silurian (Wenlockian) - Rochester Sh. – Niagara Co., New York http://www.thefossil.../?hl=+new +york Devonian E. m. Devonian (Eifelian) –
  14. Hello, I was sorting through some gravel John (Sacha) so kindly sent to me, which I wanted to share some teeth I found and possibly get some IDs/confirmation on them. Thank you in advance for taking the time to look at and respond. My apologies if these are not the sharpest pictures, these micros can be difficult to photograph without a digital microscope with a good image capture. The first tooth I think maybe a basking shark tooth, based on photos I seen on the internet of basking shark teeth from Sharktooth Hill. However, the photos seem to vary by formation (species?).

    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 r
  16. Like many people here in eastern NC my first full fledged exposures to fossils was at the Aurora Fossil museum. Growing up here, I had seen and found my share of smaller sharks teeth and "petrified" clams as we called them, but never thought much about it. Never had anyone able to expose me to the world of fossils.(Plus, I was much more interested in baseball ..... then girls.) After I had grandkids a friend said, hey you should take them to the fossil museum in Aurora. So I did and the rest is, as we say, history. I was amazed at the teeth and everything else that was on display there. The f
