    3 Toed Horse Tooth--Nannipus?

    Weather was cold and windy yesterday, but sunny and calmer down on the Brazos River in southeast Texas. Sandy gravel matrix. I always hate to get my hopes up too early in the game, but I think I may have found my first 3 toed horse tooth. I looked at Hulbert's Fossil Vertebrates of Florida book. Photograph D on pg. 292 is a right m1 or m2 from nannippus aztecus. It appears pretty similar, but I'm not sure about size. Nannippus Aztecus would have been in Texas from late Miocene to Pliocene, so region would fit. And I think @garyc has found a nannippus on the Brazos befo

    Small Lee Creek Shark Tooth

    I received some matrix from @sixgill pete a while back in a TFF auction and picked most of it a while back and ID'd the bulk of the teeth and other material. Lately I have been going back through some of my sharks teeth and looking more closely at items I was unsure of These three teeth are one such group out of this matrix. I have read Purdy et, al (2001) a bunch of times, looked at elasmo.com for hours on end, read dozens of threads on here and am still a bit confused/uncertain. So, I figured why no just ask and get several more opinions, I always appreciate what folks here have to offer

    Beaumaris Bay Fossil Site - ID PLEASE

    Well my first fossil hunt at this beach….

    Monmouth Chubutensis

    Hi all. I wanted to share this chub tooth I found towards the end of 2021. From Monmouth, NJ, I think Kirkwood formation. One of my targeted species for the year and was able to find one in about 20 hrs worth of searching.
  7. I found this in the Aurora Fossil Museum dig pits, so it’s likely Pungo River formation (Miocene), although there’s a chance it could be Yorktown formation (Pliocene). Any idea what it is? My best guess is some sort of jaw bone, maybe from a fish.

    Aurora Fossil Museum Mystery Fossil

    Hi all, I found this fossil at the Aurora Fossil Museum in North Carolina (so Miocene Pungo River formation sediments. Any idea what it is?? It’s 3cm x 2cm in size.
  10. Hello All! As you can see by the title of my post and the plethora of pictures to follow, I have been quite busy... busy fossil hunting that is! Since New Years I have been averaging at least one trip per weekend which is a good fix to distract myself from the less-than admirable weather (I just want spring!!!!!). This whole week is off for me since I'm off on Spring Break and that means I can go out hunting during the week to avoid the crowds which is always pleasant to get the beach to yourself. Also with the turn of the season and somewhat "warm" weather we have had I was able to launch my

    Very odd whale tooth

    We have company coming and I am forced !!!! to clean up a room full of bags full of fossils. The reckoning has arrived. It is slow because I slow down for interesting fossils. Over the summer, I obtained about 10 badly beaten whale teeth from the phosphate mines in Bone Valley. I did not think they would be worth the $25 I paid but the selleris a friend. In checking out that bag , I discovered a very odd tooth. I had another whale tooth about the same length (57 mm): Has anyone seen this type of whale tooth variation? Is it pathological? Thanks for

    Lee Creek Sponge Spicule

    My Lee Creek Miocene 23.0 - 5.3 MYO sponge spicule. Normal and negative view.
  13. Made a recent trip to Aurora, North Carolina to fossil hunt the Pungo River formation. These are the Megalodon, Giant White, and Mako teeth I found. Also the last pic shows the nicest tiger and sand tiger shark teeth I found. Not shown are several hundred identifiable whale and dolphins bones of decent quality, including intact vertebrae (atlas, axis, thoracic, lumbar, and caudal all found, some with processes), ribs, jaw bones, flipper bones (carpals and phalanges), sperm whale and dolphin teeth. Also found amber, petrified wood, Trionyx turtle shell, crab claws, and much more.

    Calvert Cliffs Finds

    Hello all, since I finally joined this awesome community, I decided to post these two I found many years ago at Calvert Cliffs, MD. The beaches yield marine fossils of Miocene era, shark teeth, shells, porpoise, whale, etc. I’ve always assumed the bone was something really recent but hung onto it just in case. Always assumed the tooth was some sort of crocodilian but I don’t know if that makes sense.

    Tooth plate maybe?

    This is from the temblor formation, Sharktooth Hill. Let me know if better photos are needed. Posting photos from my phone is unpredictable. These tiny teeth (?) are on silt matrix. Whether they are prepped depends on an ID, as the silt is rather loose. There seems to be some chance that bone is beneath what is visible. one bit broke off, and might be glued into position. Below the Section remaining on the matrix, appears to be more teeth of a different shape or angle, which are partially shown in the final photo. I’m grateful for any help with the ID, or prep suggestion
  17. I found this bone in reject dirt of the North Carolina Nutrien Mine. It’s most likely Miocene Pungo River material, although Pliocene Yorktown formation could be possible. I think it’s a skull fragment of a cetacean, but it has some unique prominent ridges that I think may make it identifiable (or perhaps it’s not). I’m really curious as to what this ridges are, haven’t seen anything like it before. Any ideas?

    Dominican Amber (La Toca Fm., 20.43-13.65 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    4.7g piece of amber from the La Cumbre Mine, measuring (mm) 25x22x15. It has a couple marcasite inclusions: seen here is a protruding portion (one half remains inside the piece) that was perhaps a gas bubble, but later infiltrated with iron and sulfur in solution during burial, migrating via a fracture/microfracture; or it may be a permineralized organic/inorganic inclusion (shell, quartz pebble, etc.), which are documented in amber from the La Cumbre deposit, and is called "double fossilization": while this occurs in tiny grains of younger La Cumbre amber which were deposited after the older

    5.4g piece of amber from the La Cumbre Mine, measuring (mm) 28x24x18. It has a couple marcasite inclusions: visible here, is a protruding portion (one half remains inside the piece) that was perhaps a gas bubble, but later infiltrated with iron and sulfur in solution, via a natural fracture/microfracture; the other is a natural fracture viewable on the opposite side, infiltrated and completely coated by marcasite: the thin film that begins at the rough, unbroken exterior (underside of specimen in picture).

    Dominican Amber (La Toca Fm., 20.43-13.65 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    Triple-phase inclusion and a few in-focus single and dual-phase inclusions nearby. The triple-phase bubble is a narrow chamber, possibly part of a methane termite (incomplete, heavily oxidized); there are two organic solids, the larger preventing the migration of the gas bubble. These inclusions are contained within the 5.4-4.7g specimen depicted in the four related photos. This image was captured using a Samsung WB35F while holding a BelOMO 10x loupe between the lens and specimen.

    Dominican Amber (La Toca Fm., 20.43-13.65 Ma)

    From the album: Fossil Amber from Around the World

    Triple-phase inclusion (center right) and over twelve, viewable dual-phase inclusions nearby. The triple-phase bubble contains movable particulates, which are slightly visible here in the lower-half portion of the bubble. These inclusions are contained within the 5.4-4.7g specimen depicted in the four related photos. This crude image was captured using a Samsung WB35F while holding a BelOMO 10x loupe between the lens and specimen.

  24. Various Suidae, Antelope etc. If anyone can identify individual species, please let me know! Girrafid - I contacted an expert on this and while he couldn't give me an exact species he believed it was: "right lower canine of giraffid. Since canine of fossil giraffids are rarely found, I can only tell from the size that it might belong to Palaeotragus or a Palaeotragus-sized giraffid." Some kind of feline potentially. The seller wasn't exactly sure on species. And finally a big probable Dinocrocuta Gigantea tooth!
