    Cretaceous Shark Teeth ID Help

    Hey! Wanted some outside input on what these teeth could be- the first four photos are my attempts at identifying them but more opinions would be greatly appreciated, as I'm still learning. Especially for the splotchy off-white tooth. All of these were found in 2016 in the W. M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park. Many thanks!

    My Collection so far ...

    Not as clean looking as a skeleton only, but still pretty good I thought.
  3. It seems that Goblin Shark Teeth, are the most common shark teeth found in Mississippi. I wonder why that is? I'm curious; why not some other shark, instead?

    Bone, or just rock?

    Today I was on a trip in Mississippi and found these suspicious looking objects, the area has generally more mountainous rocks, but these stuck out to me. The first one might be limestone, the second I think is either a rock or a bone, and same with the third, I do not have the one I believe is limestone anymore, but I was just curious if it was limestone.

    Mississippi Fossil

    There is a hill in south central Mississippi that is apparently constructed entirely of fossilized shells and "rocks" (bones) like this one. Can anyone help me learn more about this particular speciman? I have a good number of the shells also. Thanks! DCook
  6. Back in April of last year I started a new job based in Texas. I had planned to work remotely until we returned to the office and then make a road trip down to Texas that would involve making several fossil pit stops along the way. When the time came for my move to Texas, my road trip unfortunately coincided with Hurricane Ida and I had to sadly scrap all of my plans and simply hightail it through the Gulf Coast to avoid the storm. Fortunately though I was given off from work the week between Christmas and New Years and I was even more determined to not let my research go to waste. The delay i

    Some mosasaur teeth; serrated or not?

    During a recent trip back to W.M Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Northern Mississippi (Demopolis Formation, Late Campanian) I collected another mosasaur tooth. While incomplete the condition is still very nice. I am aware of the difficulties in identifying isolated mosasaur teeth but have been attempting it nevertheless. If nothing else I've learned more along the way. Two questions for this tooth. The first is the general question if anyone has an idea about the identification. The second pertains to what qualifies as serrations on mosasaur teeth. There are "crenulations" present on this t

    Identifying a tooth

    Found what we think is a horse tooth not long ago and then just recently found this one. Needing help in identifying, maybe cow?
  9. I have been too busy to get out fossil hunting when I want but there are a few recent times I've been able to get out. I wanted to try and post a small trip report about them. On October 31 I had the opportunity to visit the W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Prentiss County, Mississippi. Most people from the area are probably familiar with this old site but I'm a new resident to this part of the South so I wanted to give it a try. It's Late Campanian Demopolis Formation. It was a little cold and rainy but warm enough for someone used to North Dakota. Apparently th

    Mississippi Pleistocene Tooth

    From the Pleistocene of Mississippi. It’s definitely a Canine and I’d say Carnivore. I sent the pictures to someone I trust who is very knowledgeable and they said Catamount/Puma. Just looking to see some more input on it, and to let everyone else enjoy it.

    Small Mosasaur Tooth

    I've been quite busy lately but I managed to get out on October 30 and drove up to check out the W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in northern Mississippi. Despite the high water levels I did pretty well and also found this small mosasaur tooth. I'm aware of the difficulty of identifying isolated mosasaur teeth but figured I'd post it anyway in case anyone experienced with mosasaurs or this area can narrow it down even to subfamily. Plioplatecarpinae? This comes from the Demopolis Formation which is late Campanian. CM scale
  12. Please help identify a bone fragment that was found at the W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park in Baldwyn, MS. The item is interesting in that it has flat surfaces on what appears to be the top and bottom. Neither surface is porous. The bottom has more area above it that is solid. Dimensions are approx 1” L x 1/2” W x 1/2” T. Thanks for the feedback.
  13. After a 3 month dedicated search (coughSisyphean) to figure this out on my own, I still can’t find anything that remotely looks like this. I’m a longtime SE LA/SW MS creek gravel rockhounder and I’ve never come across this before. I’ve shown it to some other area collectors-no luck. This was found in a creek running through the upper terraces of the (pre-loess) La Citronelle formation not far from the Amite County, MS border. *I should also mention that Louisiana gravels within the (Plio) Citronelle contain much older rocks/fossils that are believed to have been transported by glac

    Mississippi creek jaw

    Found in a NE Mississippi creek. I’m usually in Montana, so have no clue what this could be. Seems a bit older than modern, but obviously not crazy old. Thoughts?
