  1. Large Bone Fragment?

    Hello, this was found on a southern Minnesota river rock/sand bar. I have a guess what it is but wanted to see what your unbiased opinion is by not divulging my suspicion. It dense but pretty light like a piece of very hard plywood. This was found by a friend who loves hunting river banks and rock bars...
  2. UFO from pliocene marine sediments

    Hi everyone, I can't identify these fossils. They come from Pliocene marine sediments. What they are? Size of the biggest one 1.5 cm Thanks!
  3. My biggest meg

    From the album Macro Florida Fossils

    It's a little beat up but I wouldn't trade it for the world.

  6. Marine fossil ID

    Dug this small fossil out of a sandstone boulder that was littered with bivalves and gastropod. A lot of the fossils found in the sandstone date back to the Pliocene so I can only assume it is from that period also. Thanks
  7. Pododesmus sp.

  8. Recently I’ve found some strange fossils from an area in Simi Valley (Southern California). I had thought there were only shells, but turns out there is vertebrate material! Among other fragments, I found a couple big whale vertebrae as well as this piece here that I am unsure about. I’ve seen some mentions of fossils from smaller marine mammals like dolphins and pinnipeds, maybe it’s one of those? Unfortunately there only one end present, so I’m not expecting to get anything too specific. The formation is about 5 million to 11 thousand years more. Hopefully I can get some more interesting things from that spot. Thanks!
  9. Interesting Yorktown Bivalve

    I found this bivalve in a clump of matrix that was attached to one of my other finds on a recent trip to the Tar River with @MikeR and @AshHendrick. I have never found one of these before nor seen one. Pliocene Yorktown Formation Rushmere Member. My best guess on this one is Pododesmus sp. It is 1.53 inch long (39 mm) and 1.42 inch wide (36.3 mm)
  10. Portland Bone ID

    G'day everyone! I reccently returned from a fossil trip to Portland, VIC searching for pliocene shark teeth and bones. Dad and I came back with some nice stuff but I also found this bone that has had me stumpted. Most bones collected from the site are fragmentary but this one appears to be whole but I have no idea what it is from. The bone is 30mm long, around 5 -6mm wide and very thin (Around 1mm probably a bit less) The fossil is pliocene in age, fossils found from the site include: Shark, fish and ray teeth, cetacean teeth and bones, terrestial mammal teeth and bones and rare avian material. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks, Dan
  11. Possible megalodon tooth in NJ?

    The grey tooth on the right is a small posterior megalodon tooth found in the peace river Florida. The copper tooth was found in a very shallow creek part of big brook NJ. Is it possible that a meg could have swam farther north like modern great whites do during a split time when the water level overlapped the big brook area and dropped it? I’m still new at identifying teeth but they seem VERY very similar
  12. Recently I aquired this Carcharodon tooth from Sacaco, Peru whose serrate conditions seems a bit peculiar to me. I can't really decide whether or not this tooth is from a late-stage hubbelli or an early carcharias. The serrations seem to wear/taper off just short of the tip on one side and abruptly end near it on another, and some (although not all) of the serrations appears to be angled in a way, although I suspect some may be due to wear. My thoughts on the serrations keep seesawing in my head. Would this tooth better represent a late-stage hubbelli or a carcharias? Thanks for any and all answers. Lingual
  13. Took a quick 1 1/2 hour trip yesterday afternoon to a Pliocene deposit on a river here in eastern North Carolina. I believe it is Duplin Formation. Was the first one there when the water got low enough, found some nice stuff. The Pliocene there sits on top of Eocene Castle Hayne limestone, so I got a few echinoids as a bonus. Two 2 inch plus hastalis, a 1 1/2 inch great white. A 1 3/4 inch croc tooth. A nice vert some big tigers, a broken whale tooth and Cacharhinus sp. Also a nice ray tooth file. Possibly Aetobatus. The two echinoids are Eurhodia holmesi.
  14. Hemigaleidae Teeth?

    G'day Everyone! I would like some help identifying these shark teeth I found in Portland, VIC around 5 months ago. These fossils are Pliocene in age and come from the Portland Limestone I believe. They have been sitting in my collection for a while and I have become increasingly interested in them. I have done some research and believe they are some kind of Hemigaleidae shark teeth. I would like to confirm this because there is very few Hemigaleidae fossils recorded in Australia. Thought I would get the community opinion. Thanks, Dan
  15. Cetacean? teeth from the Yorktown

    hi all, Here are three teeth from the Pliocene Yorktown at LC. When found, I was told "pilot whale", which hasn't helped much. I do believe that they are from a tooth cetacean though. Could anyone hazard a guess as to genus/species? thanks in advance
  16. Quick river trip

    Took the family out to the river this past weekend for a quick look and found a few decent teeth and some less common finds - at least for us. Two shark vertebra and a horse tooth. It's getting crowded out there with the warm weather, time to explore some new spots.
  17. Savannah land based question

    I'm fortunate to have gained access to a friend's large, private sand/clay pit here in the Savannah area. I spent a couple of hours last weekend exploring one of them after some rains we had late in the week. I walked a lot of the place, looking for any clues in the strata about where to start - honestly, the size is a bit overwhelming. Looking for megalodon teeth. Found one small piece of a meg tooth buried in the dirt on the main ramp, but that was all. It's about 75ft deep in the bottom so the bone layers I'd probably want to search might be on the sides. Looking at the pics does anyone have any suggestions? Hoping to go back with a better effort soon. Thanks guys!
  18. Possible Toe Bone

    Good evening, i found a bone that I believe to be a toe bone of a mastodon or mammoth. The bone was found in the Neuse River in Craven County, NC. Thank you in advance for assistance in identifying this piece.
