    Fish vert and fish tooth

    Finds from a week ago. I am used to finding Sawfish verts more often than Shark verts. This may be a Shark vert. If so, type of shark? Interesting and isolated damage. Here is a view after drying: Size Diameter 34 x 17 mm max/min, and 28 mm height A 2nd find: I immediately thought Drumfish, because I know of not other fish that has similar teeth ? Is it?
  2. Hello again to all of you guys , I´m in a huge need oh help to ID some mollusks of south central Chile. Currently these are storaged in the vault of a local university. I know taht the fossils in the images are not in the best conditions, but the outcrop itself sadly has been seriously reworked by a bulldozer machinery (they may be a little bit flattened). At least to a family or genus level ID should be nice considering how they actually are. The beds should be of the Miocene to Pliocene. But also theres a very minor chance of being from the middle to upper Eocene. Th
  3. Hi, I recenty acquired a bulk of shark teeth found on the beaches of Cadzand, The Netherlands. I think there are around 200 - 300 shark, ray and fish teeth in the bag ranging in age from the Eocene up to the Plio/Pleistocene. A large chunk of the teeth are common species like C. hastalis, Brachycarcharias lerichei & Striatolamia macrota teeth. But there are a few I am not sure about and some I don't even a clue about, so I was hoping some people here might help me out confirm my ID. Thank you in advance! All the ray teeth in the bunch

    Mystery Specimen ID

    I found a fossil fragment on site the other day unlike anything I have ever come across before. Some ideas that have been suggested by colleagues include a bone fragment, petrified wood, or a bryozoan colony. The fragment is approximately 2.5 cm long and half a cm wide, is Pliocene in age, and comes from the Kaawa Formation for anyone who knows their New Zealand stratigraphy well. Im not looking for an ID as such, more just a general indication of what I'm dealing with from anyone else who has come across something similar. Many thanks!

    Large mammal Astragulas

    A couple of months back, I was pushing to hunt the Peace River before the summer rains closed me out. This was every other day leaving no time to sort, photo finds from previous days. Well, the Peace River is FULL of water and I am finding time to return to interesting finds. Here is a photo of finds from early June. On this day, I also found a seal tooth, posted for ID on TFF; Additionally I posted a couple of hours earbones and a small Botryoidal Chalcedony sample from lower left. This is an interesting location.... Note the almost complete Dugong vertebra and the chunk of ray mou

    Siphocypraea carolinesis floridana

    From the album: Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Littorinimorpha Family Cypraeidae Siphocypraea carolinesis floridana (Mansfield, 1931) Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Highly variable much more so than S. carolinensis. The dorsum tends to be not as high as S. carolinensis and parietal denticles are more strongly expressed but shares the uncoiled anterior sulcus and wide posterior aperture. This is the common Siphocypraea found in the Sarasota shell pits. Also, Akleistostoma.
  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

    Virginia Turritella ID Help

    On a recent fossil outing, I visited a large shell bed in a creek near Williamsburg, VA that I read to be of the Late Miocene Cobham Bay Member, Eastover Formation. Many of the fossils we found seemed to confirm that this site is Miocene age. We found Chesapecten middlesexensis, Isognomon sp., Glycymeris sp., Ostrea compressirostra, Lirophora sp. However, we also found these three Turritella shell fragments. They measure about 2-3cm in length. I thought these shells looked very similar to the Turritella alticostata posted by @sixgill pete from the Yorktown Fm of NC or the Turritella alumensis
  12. Hi all, I have this slab that is composed of a mix of sandstone and clay matrix. One side is more heavily composed of sandstone while the other half is more clay. In the sandstone side is a well preserved mandible from Aepycamelus sp. seen from the lateral aspect. It was crushed along the sagittal plane allowing us to see the medial, lingual aspect of the other side of the mandible from behind. Because the mandible is crushed, I feel this piece would be best suited at a slab specimen, if you guys have any opinion please share. Now, the clay rich side appears to not have preserved as well but t

    An interesting Bone

    With the River and creeks WAAAAY over my head, I have started to sort, review, reduce my collections from the last 3-4 months, starting from the most recent. I have a couple of interesting bones. The 1st I think in a cannon bone from a small pre_equus horse. Why small pre_equus horse? I find 1 Equus fossil at this location for every 100 pre_Equus horse fossils, plus this bone is too small to be an Equus cannon bone. Why Cannon bone ? Because it seems very similar to a photo of Equus Cannon bone created by @Harry Pristis. Harry identified as left leg, Mine seems to be the opposite ori
