    Florida Mysteries

    Here is (hopefully) one last post to help me identify some items I found while searching through the micro matrix from a Gainesville creek that Ken @digit was nice enough take us to. Some other items have been covered in previous posts:; http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/119097-gainesville-shark-teeth-question/&tab=comments#comment-1305867 http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/114209-north-florida-fun/&tab=comments#comment-1264293 The matrix comes from a creek in Gainesville, Florida and most of the fossils are from the Miocene aged Hawthorn
  7. I was very fortunate to obtain some loose matrix and chunks of matrix that I need to break down. I really have only been working on the loose matrix so far. It has not m.uch but has been extremely productive with amazing teeth. This is the first time I have gone through matrix from this area and the colors are amazing. The matrix is absolutely loaded with so much great stuff. Most of the items I have found so far are firsts for me. Enjoy the pics! @JBMugu I have barely scratched the survive with the big chucks of matrix but these two verts came out of it. They cleaned up nice

    Matoaka Beach, MD

    Had a quick hunt this morning at Matoaka. It got crowded quickly. Water was clear. All beaches are crowded now. Nice variety of teeth.

    Flag Pond, MD

    A few nice finds at Flag Pond today. The weather was nice.
  10. Some of us will do anything to sit and sift for shark teeth, ray teeth and fossils. Temp was good today 1-20-2020 so I headed to Mulberry Phosphate Museum. Some of us are older and not in the best of health so we go where we can to enjoy the hunt! Its a great place to meet families with kids and talk about hunting and more. I had just mentioned to one of the Mothers how great it would be if the Phosphate Mine would bring some larger teeth and such and mix in with the small rocks, reason is the rocks and all through a crusher and are all small so many shark teeth are very small and others are
  11. Dear fellow fossil hunters, Joseph @The Jersey Devil and I went fossil hunting at an NJ Cretaceous stream on December 22nd and 23rd. On the 22nd I surface hunted, expecting a good wash out due to the previous night's rain. I had secured a section of the stream before realizing that someone had gotten to most of the stream before I had. Instead of continuing forward, I went back and explored some of the sections downstream that I had skipped. These too had been scanned so I ran back to my sifter that I had left upstream and then began sifting. Some hours later I was sifting and saw

    Pathology ray teeth?

    Is there such a thing as pathological ray like there is shark teeth?
  13. As rays in a number of species grow, they increase the number of teeth in their jaws through a process called file splitting. The below pictures and text are from elasmo.com: “In the accompanying image of the Roughtail Stingray, the fifth upper left file is in the process of splitting. The oldest tooth (at the labial margin) has a normal design. The following tooth is laterally expanded and by the third row, a second cusp is clearly visible. It is possible that these teeth still share a common root. In row five, there are now two teeth occupying the old (now expanded) file 5 posit
  14. So I’ve been to Bracklesham bay 3 times now and never found a shark tooth or a ray dental plate, this was after hours of searching through the shingle on the beach and across the sand when the tide is out. I’ve heard that conditions for teeth are best after/during scouring conditions but I don’t live close to the beach. Can I go by the the weather being stormy or rainy? Also I’ve heard the fossiliferous beds can be exposed sometimes when the tied is out, is this completely random or connected to ‘scouring conditions’? Any helpful advice relating to best times to go and how to find out when the
  15. Last week I had a great time to hunt in the Netherlands/Belgium for shark teeth. I was mainly at a good site near Antwerp but those finds I will post in the next days. What i want to show you here are the teeth and other things, which I found on various beaches there. For example i was in Cadzand or in Vlissingen. Too bad the shark teeth dont really have a good quality but nonetheless I am happy with my finds But pictures say more than words...

    Kids Club Micro-Fossil Hunt!

    So I didn't know where to post this, but figured fossil hunting trips would be a good spot since the kids were doing an indoor fossil hunt! Today I did my annual class for the Western Interior Paleontological Society (WIPS) Kids Club. It is always a hit, but due to scheduling I was unable to make the February class and did this one in May. May tends to be a smaller group because of the nice weather and vacations, but we still had a great time! The adults even wanted to get in on this activity and I was more than happy to help! The worst thing that happened was I forgot
  17. Hello everyone, I went fossiling today, April 14th. I got to Ramanessin Brook around 9:00 AM and ended at about 2:45 PM. The day began slowly, with me haphazardly choosing places to sift. From all the boot prints on the ground it was apparent that many people had gone surface scanning a few days before. I did find one or two teeth on the surface in the middle of the gravel bar, they must have missed them. While I was hunting there was a caravan of senior citizens hiking on one of the trails. They thought I was panning for gold but when I showed them the finds they were stunned. Some of them ha
  18. Hello everyone, Trevor here. Today I went with my father to Ramanessin Brook in New Jersey. Yesterday there had been light but extended rainstorms and was hoping that the storms could expose so new formation or clean up some gravel bars. Much to my dismay the stream was almost completely flooded, with many portions of stream just slightly below my torso. All but one of the gravel bars were exposed in the first stretch of stream I explored. I did some sifting which was not very productive. I decided to try further upstream and found that there were a few more gravel bars. Along the way I met a

    Sharktooth Hill micromatrix

    Hello once again! Well, March Break has finally begun, so my daughter Viola and I decided to spend some time sorting through the Sharktooth Hill micromatrix that Ken (@digit) sent me as part of the "rolling auction" lot that I won last month. Here are some pictures of a few of the finds so far... Ray teeth? - different from the usual plates that I've seen before Cow shark (Notorynchus sp.)? Dogshark (Squalus sp.)? Marine mammal teeth? Any ideas? Cute little shark teeth in matrix - any ideas re: th

    Fossils from Vlissingen

    The second part of my trip finds ... http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/68391-teeth-and-more-from-antwerp I was three times on a beach near Vlissingen, named "de kaloot" in the Netherlands. Its a very good location for collectors because its not that used for tourism. You can only collect there at low tide. I found some shark teeth, ray teeth, some bones and some bivalves. The shark teeth are normally very small and not that nice ... Here is my whole haul: The best tooth is this 2.8 c
  21. The last two weeks i was on vacation in the Netherlands. I was there with my whole family so i couldnt search that much ... The best location was near Antwerp (Belgium). There was desposited sand from the Westerschelde (with fossils). Unfortunately, the times in abundance are over and its very overgrown now, but at a few places you can still find something .... Looks good .... The best method is to dig a bit and sieve the material. Now my finds ... I found many shark teeth, bones and other cool things. Most of the sh

    Eagle Ray Toothplate

    From the album: TEETH & JAWS

    This is an eagle ray toothplate from the Suwannee River. Most often, these toothplates are disarticulated into single teeth. Note the wear on the occlusal surface, probably from crushing hard-shelled food items. Family MYLIOBATIDAE Subfamily MYLIOBATINAE Myliobatis sp. Late Oligocene Suwannee Limestone Suwannee County, Florida (This image is best viewed by clicking on the button on the upper right of this page => "other sizes" => "large".)

  23. Not to long ago, forum member Caldigger sent me a box of Shark Tooth Hill bonebed material. I finally finished going through it and photographing them today. I only took pictures of the best ones, and I have a lot of other partials. I managed to take these pictures with an extremely simple setup: I cut a hole in the bottom of a clear plastic cup, stuck the bottom of my microscope's lens through it, and voila Feel free to correct me in any wrong identifications. Here are some Squalus to start us off: I think they are S. occidentalis. Here are some basking shark teeth, Cetorhinus: Ca
