  1. This is actually quite enjoyable finding out which fossils are real and fake. First pic we have a fossil flower stamen from the Green River Formation in Utah. The second piece was quite cheap, but it's from Morocco (Anti-Atlas Mtns.) and it seemed odd to me that the bottom Orthoceras has the same pattern as the matrix below it. But perhaps you have an explanation for that. The third piece is a Ginkgo leaf from the Sentinel Butte Formation of North Dakota. The final piece is a Juvenile Megalodon tooth from Pungo River Formation of North Carolina. Thanks again to everyone who's helped out, I'm
  2. Made a recent trip to Aurora, North Carolina to fossil hunt the Pungo River formation. These are the Megalodon, Giant White, and Mako teeth I found. Also the last pic shows the nicest tiger and sand tiger shark teeth I found. Not shown are several hundred identifiable whale and dolphins bones of decent quality, including intact vertebrae (atlas, axis, thoracic, lumbar, and caudal all found, some with processes), ribs, jaw bones, flipper bones (carpals and phalanges), sperm whale and dolphin teeth. Also found amber, petrified wood, Trionyx turtle shell, crab claws, and much more.
  3. I found this in the Aurora Fossil Museum dig pits, so it’s likely Pungo River formation (Miocene), although there’s a chance it could be Yorktown formation (Pliocene). Any idea what it is? My best guess is some sort of jaw bone, maybe from a fish.

    Aurora Fossil Museum Mystery Fossil

    Hi all, I found this fossil at the Aurora Fossil Museum in North Carolina (so Miocene Pungo River formation sediments. Any idea what it is?? It’s 3cm x 2cm in size.
  5. I found this bone in reject dirt of the North Carolina Nutrien Mine. It’s most likely Miocene Pungo River material, although Pliocene Yorktown formation could be possible. I think it’s a skull fragment of a cetacean, but it has some unique prominent ridges that I think may make it identifiable (or perhaps it’s not). I’m really curious as to what this ridges are, haven’t seen anything like it before. Any ideas?
  6. I posted this originally in the “questions and answers” forum, but I think it fits better under fossil hunting trips since it discusses finds: What are some of the best fossil bones people have dug out of the Aurora Fossil Museum Pungo River dig pits? The actual reject pile DIG PITS, not the mine before it closed. There are some nice fossils to be found there, but I’m curious if anyone has ever managed to find for example a complete rib, or a vert. with all its processes, or a full-on cetacean jaw bone, or by some miracle an entire skull. Most fossils from the pits are somewhat beat up

    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!!!

    Help with some fossil shell IDs

    Hi. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify these shells. Thanks for your help. The first two shells were found in the spoil pile outside of the Aurora Fossil Museum in Aurora, North Carolina. They come from the Lee Creek Mine and are from the Pungo River Formation. I don't know much about shells in general, but I think this comes from a scallop. I unfortunately don't have any locality info on it.

    Micro Fish (?) Tooth

    I found this - almost missed this - while sifting through some micro matrix today. I'm guessing some sort of fish tooth, but can anyone confirm? From Aurora Fossil Museum, Aurora, North Carolina. Lower to middle Miocene from the Pungo River Fm. It's so small that I have a hard time getting the camera to focus and my microscope cam just made it a big, black blob, so I apologize for the soft focus. That course rug it's sitting on is a piece of fine velvet!

    Bird bone from Aurora, NC?

    I have been told this bone is avian, probably miocene but could be pliocene. The striations are perplexing to me. From Aurora, NC. Ruler scale is in cm. I'd like to know what family it may belong to if possible
