  1. Went fossil hunting for the first time since Holden Beach in May this past Tuesday at Greens Mill Run in North Carolina. Found my best meg EVER!! A near perfect 3 and 15/16 incher (just missing a tad bit of enamel beneath the bourlette on the front). Most megs at GMR are already fragmented and/or worn down in-situ, so extra happy about this one! Also found a Ischyrhiza mira sawfish rostral tooth tip, a huge exogyra, and I believe a nice Chesapectens masidonius? Also a baleen whale ear bone fragment, and a brown item I think might be a worn cetacean ear bone? Also a piece of petrified wood, a g
  2. So here are all of my best finds from fossil collecting at Holden Beach. The coolest stuff to me is the Cretaceous PeeDee formation material. It gives a snapshot (albeit incomplete) of the material available in the PeeDee of NC. Usually many of these finds are sparsely distributed in this formation, but the dredging activity really helped concentrate it. 1st pic: mosasaur teeth and bones (jaw and rib fragments, verts, flipper bones), meg teeth, a horse tooth, a Pycnodontid fish mouth plate, a zipper oyster, and a mammalian astragalus, Lion's paw shells, and a cetacean cervical vert
  3. The best mosasaur material from my Holden Beach, NC trip! Top left two bones are prognathodon jaw fragments, top right three bones are vertebra, bottom left three bones are ribs, lower right two bones are from the flipper. For scale, the two largest mosasaur teeth are ~5cm each. Btw about a third of this stuff ppl had walked over or picked up and tossed aside..
  4. Collected these in North Carolina this weekend. Angel shark vertebra w/ fossilized cartilage, fish skull cap, mosasaur tooth, soft shell turtle fragment, worn Otodus tooth, goblin shark teeth, crow shark tooth, bull shark tooth, and not sure what the smallest shark tooth is. These come from a mix of Cretaceous Tarheel and PeeDee formations and Pliocene Yorktown formation.

    Greens Mill Run crocodile or mosasaur tooth??

    I found this tooth in Greens Mill Run in Greenville, NC. I’m leaning towards croc due to the size of the dental cavity relative to the size of the tooth, but perhaps it is a mosasaur. It has one carina on the anterior side of the tooth, none on the posterior side. Also, if it is croc, is there a way to identify whether it’s Cretaceous or Pliocene? Or if either croc or mosasaur, perhaps genus ID? Thanks!!!

  8. Made a recent trip to Greens Mill Run and got quite a few nice fossils, particularly fossil bone. Large fragment of a Pliocene baleen whale lower jaw bone, whale rib fragment, baleen whale tympanic bullas, unfused whale vertebral epiphysis, Chesapectens jeffersonius, other Chesapectens spp., clams, etc. All collected in-situ, all from the Yorktown formation. Also quite a few sharks teeth collected from gravel bars. Also one pic, the one with the belemnites lined across the top, is all in-situ Cretaceous stuff. Great trip, digging the stuff up was a nice change from all the gravel sifting haha
  9. couldn't decide whether to post this to ID or general discussion. Would be curious to have an ID on this but the interesting thing is its position and growth habit. The bryozoan is growing on the inside of a baculite living chamber. No aragonitic preservation in the Peedee so the shell of the baculite is gone, leaving the bottom of the bryozoan colony exposed. The radial growth is also interesting. Can't say I've ever noticed that before but it may be common. Baculite fragment is 40x25mm. Fossil was found in the loose arenite of the Rocky Point Member of the Peedee Formation, late Cretaceous,
  10. A friend of mine has found these elements in the loose arenite lithology of the Rocky Point Member, Peedee Formation, Maastrichtian, Late Cretaceous. The scale is MM so they are approximately 5MM longest. Not sure if this should have been posted to the micro section but a fifth of an inch is pretty big to me. Microcrinoid and Ophiuroid material has been found in the same sediments but these things don't look right as echinoderm elements to me.
  11. Here are a few of the dolomitic pseudomorphs I mentioned in an earlier post. They form at the contact between the Rocky Point and Island Creek Members of the Peedee Formation. Dolomite apparently migrates from the Island Creek member to fill voids in the top of the Rocky Point member. Before its formal description the Island Creek Member was called the dolosilt. Drag line operators at local (Castle Hayne) quarries call it gumbo clay. The Island Creek is a nuisance because it lies between two usable (fit for the crushing mill) rock units. As nearly the oldest unusable unit exposed in the quarry
