    What did my son find?

    Hello! My son found this in Carolina Beach, NC last year. Is it a great white or megladon tooth? We made into necklace for him hence the jewelry hardware. Gracias.

    Is this an Appalachiosaur tooth?

    Is this tooth real?please tell me。Thank you in advance!
  3. Hey, I want to quiz y’all and see y’all’s knowledge on sharks! This tooth came from the east coast of North Carolina! (That’s all I’ll give you) it’s not a common find!

    My best Crow shark teeth (personal finds)

    What’s up! I’ve been bored lately and just wanted to play with some of the crows I’ve found. These have all been found on the east coast of North Carolina, in creeks and on beaches. So here you go, -My three prettiest, not the biggest crow shark teeth in the world, but in my opinion, I have not seen much crows with better colors than these 3. ( if these teeth aren’t in order, I’m sorry I’m new to this, the three I’m taking about are the yellowish tooth, orange, and blue one that’s in the middle). So those out of the way, here are some of my biggest, these are all over 1 1/10, the

    PeeDee North Carolina echinoid ID

    Hi everyone! I have not posted in very long time. Hope all my fossil friends are very well! Getting back to my love of collecting NC fossils. I have been going through many of my fossils and I came across an echinoid which I am trying to ID. I found this beauty on a fossil hunt with a dear fossil friend Sixgill Pete probably about 8 years ago. We were at an eastern NC area that had a Cretaceous exposure on a river. I thought I had an appropriate ID, but there is a new species name of Schizaster variblis. This may have been previously named Linthia variabilis. Any thou

    GMR fossils

    Went out to Green Mill run not too long ago and found some fossils that I simply couldn't identify. I have my suspicions of what they could be, but would rather get some expertise identification. Any help is appreciated!

    Onslow Beach bone and misc ID

    Hi everyone! I fossil hunt at Onslow quite a bit and have found a few things in the last couple weeks that I was curious about. The circle thing with a hole stumped a Facebook group I’m in. I did hold it up to a light and it is not see through so I’m assuming not glass. Thanks for any help as always!

    Green Mill Run, NC Identity

    Hello! I’m very new to the hobby of fossil finding and I already can’t get enough of it. I went to green mill run in Greenville, North Carolina and found a few good pieces, but I can’t seem to identify one of them. Any help would be very much appreciated, thank you!
  9. Me and ma are planning on making a trip to North Myrtle beach this winter. I know they did replenishment in 2019, I was just wondering if it is worth it for Cretaceous fossils. I'm on the hunt for another mosasaurus tooth for my collection, and am just wondering if this is the place to do it.

    Tooth ID

    Tooth identification needed for two separate finds. Found in Southport, NC (Brunswick County) near the Cape Fear inlet. Common place for bones too wash ashore. Teeth are a new find. Pictures below. Thanks!
  11. Last time I visited the outer banks, I was in Corolla and I found some of my best ice age fossils ever. So when my mom and all the other adults wanted to go again for two weeks, I didn’t protest. So off we went, down to Duck this time. It turns out that we had to leave a little early, but I wasn’t disappointed because I got what I wanted from that place. The amount of fossils here were a lot less common to find than in Corolla and I found myself walking miles and miles between finds before stumbling across something. With that being said, I got some nice sharks teeth, ray plates, more fish bon

    Bird Talon?

    Hello, I was looking for shark teeth at Holden Beach, NC USA. I found this odd bird talon shaped object. It is hollow, but doesn't look like a shell. I don't have a ruler handy, It is just estimate about 3 cm long and about about 1cm wide at the thickest end.

    Found in Dorian Aftermath

    Hello all, I found this item while searching for shark’s teeth post-hurricane Dorian in Surf City, NC. I am not sure at all what it is (if anything of interest at all), but it is pretty cool. It appears to have pieces of clear glass or crystal imbedded all throughout and when I found it it had a small strand of thread wrapped around it (it ended up falling off in my pocket, although you can see what is left of the thread in the profile picture attached about half way down the item). My first thought is that it almost looks like rusted metal. I’m certainly no expert in arrowheads, but it do

    Mammal teeth GMR

    Hi all! I'm hoping for some insight. I found two mammal teeth at GMR today and I am not 100% sure what they are. I was thinking peccary or deer. Assistance is appreciated.

    North Carolina fossils?

    Hello all! Soooooooo I'm going to North Carolina in late July for a short family vacation. We're not going there to look for fossils but of course I'm hoping to do just that. I really have no idea where to start. Any suggestions? Thank's.

    North Carolina hollow shark tooth

    I found this hollow mako shark tooth on the piles in North Carolina, I was told that the tooth hadn’t fully formed when the shark lost it but I want a few more opinions on it. Size referencefront
  17. Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you about the crab carapace which I found in 2012. I found it at the Rocky Point Quarry, Rocky Point, North Carolina, USA. This little crab carapace captivated me and I am so thankful to Alex Osso for responding to a trip post I made in 2012. I thought I had a regular little carapace, but with his help and then Don Clements and among several others, the carapace made it's way to George Phillips. Then the research began. I want to thank everyone whom has been a part of this adventure, timeless research, keeping me informed, answering my questions and just

    Eocene Sponge Identification help.

    Hi everyone! I have been cleaning out, organizing and labeling the mounds of sediment buckets in my garage. Plenty of time over the holiday break to try and get my mind back in to the fossiling mode. I tried at the beginning of this year to get my Friday excursions going again and venture to some quarries, but there are limited areas which the fossil hunter may tread now a days. Then priorities in life too . These buckets of sediment have been waiting for me for many years and months, just waiting for me to take the time to investigate their treasures. I started a few days ago on

    Micro teeth identification

    Hi everyone, I have been going through and organizing all the matrix I have stored in my garage. Slowly washing, drying and sifting trough. My son is getting a kick out of it! He has his own fossil corner now just for him. We started out rinsing Aurora, NC matrix and then moved on to some from Texas. I can not recall where in Texas the matrix came from, my labels had deteriorated. We have been looking through our books and online for identification of the two teeth I posted. If any can help with this, please do. The first tooth is from the Aurora, NC matrix (Miocene/Pliocene). 3mm

    Found This Tooth On NC Beach

    I found this whole combing the NC Topsail shore today. Couldn't find anything online to help me ID it as a shark's tooth. Is it a shark's tooth? Some other type of animal? Any help is appreciated! Edit: also, it's not very big. Maybe the size of my pinky fingernail if that helps.

    Hammerhead Tooth?

    Found this in a pile of shell fragments today. I'm terrible at identifying shark's teeth. From my research online it looks most like the tooth of a hammerhead. I would like someone more seasoned to have a look! Any help is appreciated!!

    Tooth? Rock?

    Hello all! I recently moved from Pennsylvania, to Surf City, North Carolina. I've heard shark's teeth are pretty common around here, but I have not been able to find one...until possibly now? I was walking in ankle deep ocean water today and stumbled across this. It sure looks like a tooth...but I couldn't find anything online that would solidly help me identify if this belonged to a shark at one point. Now I'm starting to think it's just a convincing rock. Can anyone help me determine if this is a fossilized tooth or just a clever rock? If it is a tooth, what kind of a anima
