    NC river mile posts

    So I found an older publication that mentions some bluffs and landings on some North Carolina rivers but for the life of me I can't find a map of them or mile posts except for the Cape Fear. It doesn't mention coordinates and mentions these bluffs on the Neuse and Black River in passing. Anyone know of a certain website or page that can tell me where the bluffs are?

    Triassic NC finds

    Some finds from the Triassic basin of Durham, NC. Not sure if they're anything, but thought I'd bring them home, just in case. Would love to hear what you guys think they are

    Fossil Identification Please

    Requesting fossil identification please! Thank You !

    Hi all. I found what I believe is a vertebra, but can't be 100% sure and what it may be from. I found in Holden Beach, NC today buried in a foot of water near low tide

    Fossil Identification Request

    Fossil found in the surf area of Holden Beach, NC. Any assistance identifying fossil would be appreciated! Thank You

    Is this a broken megaladon tooth

    Can you ID this please? Found at Holden Beach this summer.
  7. Found these in eastern NC river this weekend and could use some help identifying. It was in an area most likely Yorktown , found among great white teeth, a horse tooth, tilly bones, whale bone and some shell fragments. Lot of reworked material in the gravel. This item looks like the bones of the front of a lower jaw to me but these holes off to the sides confuse me - they are rounded inside like a tooth or tusk might have sat in them but the angles are odd - I could be wishful thinking here - just seemed out of the ordinary to me. Then the other is a bone it’s much lighter and the p
  8. Hi. Taking some kids to harkers Island North Carolina. Does anyone know of a good place to find teeth in the area? Any beaches known for good finds or any rivers (within an hours drive) we could dig and sift in? Thanks!
  9. Hi Everyone, Had this tooth pop up in my screen while creek hunting sharks teeth in eastern NC. The area does produce ice age materials. It’s not all cleaned up yet but here are some shots. Tanks, John

    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

    Fossilized sea biscuits

    I recently found a bunch of these in North Carolina. Can anyone please give me any information on it? Such as age etc. Thank you so much.

    Age of fossilized sea biscuit

    Thanks for accepting me into the group. Do you have any information on this sea biscuit that came from Holden Beach, NC? Thanks so much

    Soft shell turtle?

    Hi Everyone. Found this pretty thick piece today in the surf - southern NC beach. Most of the soft shell turtle pieces I’ve found are much thinner - this is at least 1.2cm or .5” thick in the middle and then tapering to the sides…. Do you believe this is a soft shell turtle fragment?

    Large tooth root?

    Good morning, Coastal Brunswick Co NC here. found a really interesting piece. Appears to be some sort of tooth root perhaps? Remnants of enamel-like material on the inside and a void. Folks helped me ID a giant beaver tooth months back and at first I thought this perhaps could also be a match however looking at some pictures of beaver skull it does not have a root like this. I did find some photos of dinosaur teeth that have long roots attached this seems different. Checked whale teeth and couldn’t find anything similar. I don’t think it’s part of an antler. What do y’all th

    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:

    Aurora NC jawbones?

    I was looking through all the bone fragments my wife and I found in Aurora, NC recently and noticed 2 of the pieces had evenly spaced notches along one side. The only thing I could think of is split jawbone fragments. Thoughts?
  17. I’m heading to Aurora tomorrow and they mention the “fossil park” with “pits and piles” but I can’t figure out where that is exactly - near the museum? Does anyone know?

    Potential Beast Tooth

    Found this tooth in a place where all the teeth are whiteish with lightning streaks (acidic). This "tooth" was found where several other teeth were found. E.g.. Megs, GW, and makos. All but a few show signs of sever breakdown. I included an additional pic of more teeth found there for reference. Thoughts??
  19. I will be getting my military retiree ID soon that should allow me to get on Camp Lejune and visit the Onslo Beach recreation area. I've heard the fossil hunting there was very good back when it was easier to get on base. I assume I can expect to find the same sort of shark teeth and other fossils as are found on North Topsail Beach since the two locations are not too many miles apart? The last few trips to NTB have been a bust and I want to make another trip to the coast worthwhile. Any thoughts, tips, or suggestions are welcome.

    Necrocarcinus claw?

    With all the dredging occurring along Holden Beach, lots of cool stuff to be found. Came across this crab claw, which looks very similar to one found by a member Carl in a post from 2018 I think. Doing some research looks like from Necrocarcinus family but not sure if that aligns to Pee Dee formation…. The top of the pincher broke off, but the movable bottom is still affixed… (bottom of pic with teeth)

    2021 Trip review

    Wanted to share one of my first trips to a new location I went to last year. I was only checking the area for fossil evidence and was blown away at what I found. I was there for 2.5 hrs and could not believe what I left with. Completely surprised and could not be happier. This place has stayed on my mind ever since. lol. <·,^ ><

    Shark tooth bonanza

    I know this is a late post but I had a trip for fossils a few weeks back and wanted to share the finds. Love it when I get something nice for the case!

    Auriculatus Heartbreaker

    Well folks all of us in the househave been sitting around a day and a half after testing positive for this corona stuff. We all are fully vaccinated, booster included and are showing none to severely mild symptoms. Myself, I am showing no symptoms at all othe than mild head / body aches. But, we are all ok. Anyways, I had to get out for a bit so I drove the couple of miles to my private little Eocene quarry. Other than the normal assortment of teeth, sawfish verts and rostral teeth I found this heartbreaker of a ric. Other than the broken root it is
