  1. At least 415 individual shark teeth; although many are very small and / or broken. None are pristine; but they are fossils, and all were found in a few hours, by little ol' me. I hunted until I was worn out, from walking and bending over to pick them up. A few tiny pieces of ray plates, too.
  2. My first ever trip to this location. I gave it a go for a few hours today, and I managed to find a few fossils. Nothing here that will blow people away; but I was "very thankful" that I was able to find fossils, without having any local knowledge. It was a learning experience. The location Information, is in the attached photographs.
  3. Hello all, I have some teeth that have accumulated from some past trips that I haven't been able to find an ID for. I appreciate any input people might have. First, there is this fish tooth from the Moodys Branch Formation (Eocene) of Mississippi. As difficult as bony fish teeth are I thought I'd see if anyone could ID this one since it is quite a nice tooth. Closest thing I've found is Eutrichiurides but it isn't as compressed as figured plates. Attempting to show the double carinae. The following teeth are from the By

    Mississippi Pleistocene Jaws

    These are from the Pleistocene of Mississippi
  5. As y'all know, I love photographing my fossils almost as much as I love finding them. So of course, I have to do a Year in Review of my best fossil finds! I seem to be averaging about 150 best finds a year....not too shabby methinks! Hope y'all all had a great fossiliferous 2022 and that 2023 is EVEN BETTER
  6. Hi Everyone, Last month I took a trip from New York to Elizabethtown, Kentucky to attend my parents' 70th anniversary. My sister and her husband, two of her adult children, and my parents, both in their 90s have all resettled there. I try to visit them at least once per year, but my parents' 70th wedding anniversary could not be missed. It is a very long trip from the suburbs of New York City to E-Town and a stop along the way was the sensible thing to do, so I spent the night in Harrison, Ohio near the border with Indiana and only 15 minutes from St. Leon, the well known Ordovician roadc
  7. My husband and I went on a little "tour" of Mississippi on a three part "hunting" trip....for fossils, ancestors and ghosts. Before you get all grammatical, I didn't hunt my ancestors, but I did hunt for their gravesites. I have ancestry 7 generations back in the Natchez area of southern Mississippi and had been there a few times for family reunions while growing up. But it's been at least 35 years since I was last there. So we decided to make a little road trip around the state to visit not only my ancestors, but also a tour of as many Native American mounds as we could fit in the trip - f

    Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park 2022

    Dug into this park on Tuesday for a few hours. I really have no experience with Mesozoic strata, aside from Coon Creek of Tennesse. The water was inconsistent in it's depth due to a local beaver dam causing higher than normal water levels. Material here consists of unconsolidated clays, gravel and sand. Here are two large bivalves I recovered from the upper beds containing clams. I believe these are Exogyra costata which are common at this location. This tooth belongs to Scapanorhynchus texanus in which the teeth are referred to a

    Not as clean looking as a skeleton only, but still pretty good I thought.

    Gar scale arrowhead age?

    Found in southern Mississippi, USA near a creekbed in the late 1950's-early 60's. Looking for any information on age and confirmation that it IS a gar scale fossil arrowhead. Just under 5 cm/2 inch in length.

    Newbie looking for assistance

    Hi all, very excited to join the forum! I'm chiming in from west Feliciana parish, Louisiana and I'm very close to the Mississippi River. It's low now, and I love to walk the low water banks and see what has turned up. This go round I found a partial tooth, and I'm thinking it is fossilized, maybe Pleistocene? I'm hoping someone can help... Pecarry is the most likely candidate to me thus far. It's about the size of a thumbnail fyi

    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!

    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
  18. 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?
  21. 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
