    ID request Kythera island

    Hello everyone. I was collecting in an abandoned sand quarry in the Greek island of Kythera. The formation is Tortonian - Zanglean made of various hardness/density sandstone. The upper layer looks like river deposits as it has more round pebbles and its thickness is less than a metre. The main formation exceeds 8m. North of this place (800m) and south of it (1000-1200m) there are confirmed Miocene deposits, terrestrial and river origin. I am clueless with this. 2€ coin = 1inch I thought of mammal tooth but I have no idea of such things. My other

    Hey everyone! This was found in Southern California in Plio-Pleistocene and Pliocene loosely consolidated gravel and was wondering if it was bone? The area it was found in produces a bunch of petrified wood and possibly some Coprolite. What do you think? Thanks in advance!

    So Many Minis!

    From the album: Aurora/Lee Creek Mine Micro Matrix

    This assemblage came from one cup (about 340 ml) of micro matrix from Aurora Fossil Museum. Oddly, they are generally much larger than most of what I found in the rest of the matrix. They are all from either the Pliocene or Pleistocene. See album description.

    A fossil in my fossil?

    Hello, I recently found these two alligator scutes in Manatee County, FL. Upon close inspection they both seem to have a piece of something dark lodged in them. It appears almost in the same place on both scutes. One of the dark spots has a very interesting shape to it, like it could be a fossil or mineral. The scutes were discovered less than an inch apart at a land site. What are the dark spots on these scutes? Thank you for looking. Marie
  12. Greetings, I found this tooth last week at a land site in Manatee County, Florida. It measures 1/4” (6.35 mm) wide on the chewing surface and 1/2” (12.7 mm) tall. Many thanks

    Hexanchus or Notorynchus

    I recently picked up three cow shark teeth with uncertain identifications. I can not be sure myself so I thought I’d get some help sorting this out. First one is 19mm and comes from the Pico Formation, Ventura County California. I believe it is Pliocene in age. I think it is a Hexanchus tooth but Notorynchus is known from at least one So Cal formation similar in age according to fossilworks. It is missing the largest cone. Even though I lean 6 Gill, I’m almost hoping somebody thinks 7 Gill because a California 7 Gill would be sweet lol Either way, it’s a really pretty tooth.

    Is This a Fossil?

    Hey everyone! I was recently fossil hunting at Bolinas in California, which is known for its fossilized sand dollars. While hunting, I found this strange piece and I'm not sure if it's a fossil or not. It's from the Merced Formation, which is from the Late Pliocene to the Pleistocene in California. I have no clue what it is, but I am looking forward to hearing if anyone on the forum does. Thanks!

    Pliocene marines and a tooth.

    My family and I went away for the weekend to the coast. This specific coastal area is known for its pleistocene mammal fossils as well as msa artifacts and hominid fossils. The pictures below are of the beach scape, outcrops fossil roots and shells in situ. The other shell and sponge fossils where found in another location thats roughly 100m above sea level. The fossil tooth is from a cape porcupine.

    Molar cap

    It is hard finding days to hunt in South Florida. 95% of my locations are 3-4 feet over my head. It is only by marking and remembering low water locations that I get to continue in these heavy rain months. Even now the available locations are limited, and thus the finds can also be limited, but not today. This location is a Mio_Pliocene that can produce very rare items. My hunting buddy found the 1st. A badly worn (old individual) molar cap.. Usually the caps I find are unused, pristine, making them far easier to identify. The measurements around the edges are 17x 17x x 15.5. This is

    Stingray Mouthplate

    Found today. Any fossil with multiple ray teeth is rare for me. I have previously found a complete mouthplate about the size of a quarter. Then, 3/4 of a much larger mouthplate and it was oval in shape. This one seems to be square or rectangular. Please identify the species and if possible, give me a photo of a single tooth. Thanks....

    Large Vert

    At first I thought dugong, but now I am unsure. I am still thinking marine mammal. @Boesse That would also make sense from where it was found. Un_fused epiphysis means juvenile.
