    Opinions on Miocene tooth?

    Shopping for some opinions on this tooth from the Potomac river …Thanks!
  2. I found lots of petrified wood in the lower part of the Miocene Chalk Canyon Formation north of Phoenix. The layer is mostly sandy and pumaceous. Does anyone know what the siliceous 1mm long elongated spheres are or how they formed? Could they be fecal pellets, fungi or other fossils. I have seen similar structures associated with California Miocene palm wood. @paleoflor Penny is 19 mm across.

    Summertime Hunting

    In the summer, my hunting strategies change. The Peace River is too fast and deep for successful hunting. I travel farther into Bone Valley, either land hunting or very remote lakes, rivers, creeks. Generally, I see no other hunters. I have a few spots that I know about but hunt sparsely and save as last resorts. I am having difficulty making time for hunting. Wife is away to SC, and I am on dog sitting duty, guests and relatives are arriving later this week and next. So, Monday was one of the few days I could go.. My hunting partner called Sunday night, had to back out. I went anyway,
  4. Just wanted to share a seriously pathologic hastalis from a recent trip in Virginia…

    Parotodus benedeni

    From the album: TEETH & JAWS

    Parotodus benedeni The genus Parotodus: the false mako shark. – Abstract: Living in the shadow of megalodon that roaming the Neogene seas, Parotodus benedenii, another supposedly large representative of the Otodontidae family, seems to have preferred, at the same time, the large ocean spaces, if we rely on the high frequency of its teeth in the abyssal deposits of the Indian Ocean and the Pacific. Its rarity in the terrestrial deposits makes it, for the collectors, a mythical species whose disappearance seems to be concomitant with that of its famous cousin Otodus (Megaselachus) megalodon

    Sharks tooth ID

    Found this tooth yesterday while creek walking. It was at the base of an eroding bank and stuck in the sediment. This is my second sharks tooth out of this spot, first was a crestaceous goblin shark. Not sure what this one is. Travis county Texas
  7. Got tons of shark teeth (Tigers, Lemon, Bull, Snaggletooth), ray mouth plates, some ray barbs, some horse teeth fragment, some sea turtle shell pieces, and dugong bone rib pieces that I'm more than happy to trade for... well anything that people would want to trade for! Feel free to PM me, I've got plenty of the above to trade!

  10. Been out of action for awhile. And lots more competition nowadays. Finally got out. My old places had been hit hard. Worked a new spot, and while nothing big, some teeth and curious stuff (stingray barb, small ecphora-- none perfect, some vertebrae, a few angel shark teeth, broken cowshark and mako). Good toget out again!

    Hi! Nice to meet you!

    Hi! I'm a 23 year old prehistoric/fossil lover who's been casually collecting fun things for the past 4 years or so. I've stayed around the MD/VA area for that time and I've dabbled deeper into the more technical info about these and many other types of fossils but I really want to get more into it. I love learning about these old species and how the earth and it's contents have changed so much over so many years. I hope to discover and learn a lot more! I actually do have some fossils that i need help with identifying, if anyone can help me! just for curiosity's sake 1- i rea

    Just bone frags?

    Hello everyone was wonder if these are just bone frags? Ne florida hawthorn formation. Thanks much
  14. Hi all! Went on another expedition to flag ponds in Calvert MD the other day, had probably one of my best hunts so far in the formation. in total I found 112 teeth, 51 shark, 59 ray, 2 bony fish. I yelled in excitement when I found this one in the shell bed, blending into the grays. There's only two things this tooth could belong to and one of them is a shark I have been hunting for years. I am leaning towards Meg in my ID, as the break line seems to go across the middle where the chevron would be, in addition to the profile of the tooth is girthier than the hastalis I h

    Aurora NC finds

    My wife and I made our way down to North Carolina for the Aurora Fossil Museum's Fossil Festival last weekend. Overall it was a pretty productive trip and we came away with well over 1000 shark teeth, some nice shells, lots of ray teeth, some shark, fish and cetacean verts, small cetacean teeth and a bucket of coral pieces. We heard many of the regulars say that the tailings weren't as productive as other years, but I saw quite a few nice specimens being collected. A few of the larger teeth, most of ours were damaged, but some of the colors are great: Lots of s

    Pleasant surprises

    Out yesterday. Hunting one of the few spots available during the summer rains. It is mostly marine, sharks, rays, etc. Lots more effort for far fewer finds. Finding any bone is unusual, and I keep everything not a rock, and sometime I keep the rocks also.. There is a rock in this photo, but it LOOKED like a bone while hunting! I sort out all the small shark teeth, keeping jewelry grade and 10 of the best unbroken ones. The rest go to my hunting partner, who sells them on online. It is a recognition of all the contributions he makes to my hunting success. T

    Tooth, Tusk ?

    Hunting yesterday, We usually pack it in at 2 pm, start the journey home. It is about that time. This is generally a marine, Miocene environment. Bone is an unusual find. I pick this out of the sieve because it flashes blue. At first, I think tooth, and that's exciting, but then I see the brown and not so sure. Also rock can be agatized into blue colors here. Anyways, toss into the collection bag and on to the next sieve. Pretty Interesting? This is the photo that grabs my attention. 47 x 24 mm

    NC Miocene micros

    Went through about half a pint of the sifted matrix I brought home from Aurora. There were shark teeth as I had expected, way more urchin spines than I would have guessed and some small coral like pieces I'm not sure exactly what they are. Nice sample including the pieces in the top left I am trying to identify: Tried taking pic with clip on micro lens for the phone:

    Florida fossil tooth partial?

    Hello everyone was wonder if this was a tooth partial or just bone frag? Ne florida hawthorn formation. Thanks much
  20. Shellseeker


    7 feet at Zolfo makes it very difficult (dangerous) to hunt the Peace River. I just got off the phone with my fossil hunting partner. Likely we'll go Monday trying those shallow spots we marked during season. That is because we are more stubborn than Bighorns. Makes me think back to Tuesday. We tried a location that has produced some miocene finds, but we had been there many previous times, and ignoring small teeth, there were few finds. Might be a croc tooth, but I would not argue if someone said gator. The reason I made this a FossilID thread

    Tooth id help florida.

    Hello is this a pygmy sperm whale tooth? Also investing in a caliper and better camera for better clarity and scale, kinda handicap at the moment. This was found in northeast florida out of the hawthorn formation.
  24. I’m making this post because I don’t think many TFF members are familiar with Pelagornithidae bony-toothed birds. I first became aware of bony-toothed birds a few years ago when the son of my friend Gary found a beautiful jaw of a bony-toothed bird in the Miocene of Maryland. However, I really wasn’t expecting to find any specimens in the Eocene of Virginia that I regularly collect. However, recently Gary, who I collect with on a regular basis, found a piece of a bony-toothed bird jaw in the Eocene of Virginia. My friend Mike then showed me a really nice specimen that he had also collected
