    Rooted Dolphin/Cetacean Tooth?

    Hello everyone I found this small tooth yesterday diving in a SE US river spot that has only produced Miocene era materials so far: Shark Teeth-Megalodon, Carcharadon Hastalis (no Carcharadon Carcharias yet), Hemipristis Serra, etc.) and plenty of whale bone, verts, ear bones and teeth. I think this is a small dolphin tooth but I haven't seen one with a root that is pretty much perpendicular to the tooth like this. I've also attached a couple pics of the other stuff found yesterday for reference. Thanks for looking. Let me know if there is another angle that may help

    potential miocene hyena skull?

    need some help identifying this, im pretty good with extant species but this stumped me. just purchased and has yet to come in the mail. seller didnt include any information except that it was a miocene hyena and these pictures. i know this is super vague, so no worries if we cant identify it i was told it could be a percrocuta, it measures 7-8 inches, 17-20 centimeters long i will be able to describe more when i receive it
  3. just posted this in fossil id to see what exactly it is but i shouldve made sure it was real first haha. this is on the way, i dont have many pictures or good ones but i was wondering if its an obvious fake or not, as i can return it in a small window of time after i receive it. any help is really appreciated

  6. Hi All, It's been a while since I have posted, let alone gone collecting but I just had a really good trip down to the Matoaka Beach Cabins in St. Leonard, MD. Here you can pay $5 ($10 on weekends) to access their beach which gives you about 1/3 of a mile to explore. I went down on Tuesday the 14th since I had some time off from work. It coincided with an extremely slack tide which directly led to many of my best finds. No shark teeth unfortunately, except for two pieces that were just roots with the toothy part broken off. I did however clean up on Ecphora sp. and Cetacean bo
  7. Hi All, Been a while since I've been out collecting but I just got back from a trip to Matoaka Beach Cabins along the Chesapeake Bay. I found an interesting section of limb bone in the surf and would like your opinion as to if it belonged to a land or sea mammal. Found in the surf piles near the cliffs at Matoaka Cottages, St. Leonard, MD. Most likely from Shattuck Zone 17 (St. Leonard Member) or Shattuck Zone 18 (Drumcliff Member) of the Choptank Fm., Miocene, Neozoic. If you need larger versions of any of the pics, let me know. Thanks!

    Part 2: Chesapeake bay.

    Well, this is the last fossil hunting trip that I will be going on for a while now. 2 more months before I’m able to collect again. The bay has always been nice to me, no complete megs this time around but for what the weather was, it wasn’t terrible. The waves were white caps and I could’ve sworn that my inflatable canoe would have sunk underneath the waves had I made one wrong move that day. I persevered anyways having megs on my my mind but when I pulled up to the beach it wasn’t looking good. Now I’m no meteorologist but I’m pretty sure that 2-3 foot white caps smashing against the cliffs

    Quality time

    My son currently lives in Dallas. For the last 10 days, he was visiting the East Coast of Florida, and yesterday we got together for a Bone Valley hunting trip. During these stressful times, getting together with family is a luxury to be enjoyed. We were together in the sunshine, checking our sieves within 10 feet of each other, talking about family, events from long ago, and events coming up. Talking about fossils and finds. You can see by the gray in his beard that the 2 of us have been doing this for a good long time. It was about 95 degrees but when you are standing in water, it is easy

    New Bay Mystery

    Hi everyone. I went to Calvert Cliffs last week & found an interesting piece of bone. I have dozens of bone fragments from the Bay, but almost all of them are linear. This one is much more rounded. It is slightly bigger than a quarter. It might be too small to identify, but I thought it was worth sharing. It doesn't look turtle-y to me, but I guess that is a possibility.
  11. Currently away from home on a work trip but that has allowed me to explore the silt stone laid down by Lake Manuherikia in the Otago region of New Zealand. The period is early to mid Miocene (16-19 million years). I have spent the last couple of evenings searching sites for fossil leaves or anything else I can find. FYI the bottle cap is for scale. I have nothing else with me but I figure most bottle caps are the same the world over. The above is part of a large palm frond. Hyridella shells above in matrix.

    Notorynchus tooth?

    I found this tooth at my favorite shark tooth site in Southern Germany today. Miocene Burdigalian, Oberemeeresmolasse Formation. I'm pretty sure that this is a Notorynchus sp. parasymphesal upper frontal, but I'd just like to ask the shark specialists if they would agree. Slant length including root is 19mm.
  13. I found this bone end along the bay in Maryland last weekend, and wondered if there’s enough there for someone to identify what beast it might have come from. It’s hollow so possibly avian? But not necessarily... Thanks for looking!
  14. Hello again to all of you guys , I´m in a huge need oh help to ID some mollusks of south central Chile. Currently these are storaged in the vault of a local university. I know taht the fossils in the images are not in the best conditions, but the outcrop itself sadly has been seriously reworked by a bulldozer machinery (they may be a little bit flattened). At least to a family or genus level ID should be nice considering how they actually are. The beds should be of the Miocene to Pliocene. But also theres a very minor chance of being from the middle to upper Eocene. Th
  15. Lots of competition in the summer, and while it's good to see kids out hunting, they have destroyed a few of my favorite spots, and my shark teeth numbers have dropped. But they seem oblivious to everything but shark teeth. Had an interesting trip lately, some teeth the kids missed, but mostly other stuff. Numbers down, but diversity up! (Size is always an issue there). . Top left: cowshark teeth pieces and one with a huge oblique root (but only one spike?) top, center and right, skate denticles, two verts, some teeth and bryozoans(?) more teeth, on right, three ang

    Whale Otolith, bone, or rock?

    Hi guys! This was found off the coast of North Carolina by a scuba diver, My first thought was huge weathered otolith but I'm not sure and would like a second opinion if it might be another bone or a rock. It's a little over 5 inches. Thanks!

    Possible NJ Squalodon?

    Hi Everyone, looking for confirmation if this is a Squalodon tooth. It’s only half the tooth with very little root. It was found in a stream with Miocene exposures. Thanks, John

    Possible Coral...need help.

    Howdy all. First post but long time lurker. Need a little help with an ID. The fossil was found in Central Florida while sifting for shark teeth. The river has exposures from the Miocene epoch, at times I think older, and have found all manners of shark teeth with occasional mammal and reptile fossils showing up (deer teeth, snake ribs, alligator teeth and others). However, this little sucker stumps me. A small part of me believes it is a type of coral, but I am literally lost on where to begin with its identification. For orientation I call the "bumpy" side the top and the "ring"
  19. This bone found at Stratford Hall on the Potomac has a socket that makes me think it’s part of a pelvis... I could be totally wrong on that, but it does resemble some online comparisons to turtle or bird, but I’m hoping more experienced eyes will know ... thanks for taking a look!

    Aurora Dig Pit Fossils

    Soooo a few days ago new material was dumped at the Aurora Fossil Museum. Well, I made the trip there before the Saturday crowds, and was well rewarded!!! These were the best finds of the day =p btw the stuff underneath the shark verts are 2 stingray spines, a filefish vert, a burrfish bone, a beat up dolphin jaw bone, and what I think is some type of fish skull cap

    Fossil id (Calvert MD)

    Hi! First, thank you to everyone who responded to my older post asking for fossil hunting tips- I used as many as I could and I found some great stuff! Here's what I found and can't ID myself from my latest trip to Flagponds (Calvert MD). I was thinking 11 might be snaggletooth shark, and 19 and 20 looked like they might be from some kind of white shark though I'm not entirely sure? In addition to those I'm especially interested in identifying 1, 3, 4, 5, 8-9, and 13 but haven't been able to so far. I'd appreciate any help identifying these and the other teeth I have pictured! 36-48 are
  22. Hi, I recenty acquired a bulk of shark teeth found on the beaches of Cadzand, The Netherlands. I think there are around 200 - 300 shark, ray and fish teeth in the bag ranging in age from the Eocene up to the Plio/Pleistocene. A large chunk of the teeth are common species like C. hastalis, Brachycarcharias lerichei & Striatolamia macrota teeth. But there are a few I am not sure about and some I don't even a clue about, so I was hoping some people here might help me out confirm my ID. Thank you in advance! All the ray teeth in the bunch

    2 inch Meg from an angry bay

    Got out on the bay today. The canoe will need repairs now that it’s been punctured. It’s no longer sea worthy until it gets fixed. Anyways, got out to the Chesapeake today and the low tide wasn’t necessarily all that low. It was unrelenting waves the whole day. There wasn’t much teeth found today as normal but that doesn’t matter. I had a really good day out on the bay despite the large tsunamis. Here’s what all was found: the total round up: The Lower Megalodon is a killer. It’s so perfect there is absolutely nothing wrong with it at all. Always consider finding

    4 complete megalodons in one trip

    Woah. Is all I have to say to this trip. Finding one of these was going to be a trip maker, but I found 4 complete megalodons. I’m really stoked. Also found some nice hemis, sand tigers, dolphin vertebra, bone, and etc. 3 of the megs were posterior but the fourth was a nice little cream Meg. Just a shame that I couldn’t get 5 today (just kidding). Here’s the haul. Bone frags and verts: small shark teeth: broken shark teeth: Meg and friends: The bay was just perfect. Had the whol

    Dolphin Periotic

    I am blessed to(still) be finding a few interesting but small fossils. This 1st one is a very high quality horse ear bone, and the 2nd is a clump of silicified coral with a little Botryoidal druzy growing inside. I always enjoy sharing these. And ... the last is easy. It is a Dolphin earbone (size 33 x 18.5 x 11 mm) ... a periotic. But I want to know which dolphin. and for that I need an experienced eye. @Boesse I hope that I have provided enough views. It might be a number of different Marine Mammals. See this recent thread to understand why I ask for
