  1. As it looks like I won't be able to make it back out to Charleston for quite a while, I was wondering what the fossil hunting scene looks like here in Texas. I've heard that there's some miocene material to be had around Galveston and Bolivar, and I've heard about the Eagle Ford Formation and Post Oak Creek, but I haven't come across a whole lot of information. I do know there are some invertebrate fossils along the Brazos, but I'm not super big on snails. I'm in the Houston area, so a day trip down to the coast is definitely feasible, but I need to do some more research before I commit to mak

    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?
  3. Please let me know if you think this tooth has no repairs or restorations? It's being advertised as not. Seems to have none, but please see images. Seems to be a beauty, 5.75 inch upper principal anterior from Indonesia. Thanks in advance.
  4. Here is my latest trip to POC. Another nice large tooth (I took a picture with a cm ruler for the non-Americans out there), some mastodon or mammoth enamel, a few nice ptychodus, chunkasaurus, and several chunks of matrix with teeth sticking out of them. I also had a few questionables. Anyone know what kind of tooth is in pictures 5 and 6? Or 7 and 8? Im thinking 9,10, and 11? 12, 13, and 14 might be crushed crustacean or coprolite? 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
  5. Hello, Just purchased some Permian matrix bags from Richards Spur, OK and the Texas Red Beds. I have a few items I'm wondering if anyone can help me ID. I do have some guesses for a few of them. Using a dime for scale. Red Beds Going to guess Eryops skull fragment on this one. I think these might be fragments of Orthacanthus spines. Partial vert? This one is so small I really can't capture any distinct detail in the photo. Most small teeth fragments in this matrix were the broken tips of Orthacanthus teet

    Cretoxyrhina mantelli? Sweden

    Found ths shark tooth in Ignaberga Sweden. Its around 1 cm big. Some info about this locality. Its upper Cretaceous deposits where Cretoxyrhina can be found.
  7. I haven’t posted in a while so I figured I should get involved again! We took a trip to New Jersey recently to see what we could find. Luck was on our side this time. It was the first time my son has gone hunting with me, it was incredibly special and memorable. Here’s our finds from our time, nothing crazy but a few nice finds!
  8. I went out to brave the Texas summer heat and was well rewarded. Post Oak Creek is so heavily picked, especially in the summer, that I didn't expect much. I even went there with the Dallas Paleontological Society last month and saw a ton of footprints then and not many good teeth. The first three hours I found almost nothing, as I expected the surface was all picked over, however I found one gravel bar that people must not have gotten to because I started finding a few decent cretodus, squalicorax, goblin shark teeth, and a couple of nice ptychodus. Finally I found two huge teeth about a foot
  9. Took the relatively short trip down to Purse State Park last weekend and had quite a bit of success! Best find was certainly a fairly large chuck of what I think is turtle shell, along with a very much alive turtle that rested with us for our lunch before returning to the water. The dream of finding anything marine mammal or a somewhat complete ray plate remains for next time!

    Childhood Shark Tooth

    Ive had this fossil shark tooth since I was gifted it at a pretty young age. Since the tooth was marketed towards kids, the packaging had no species ID or location found on it. The only info I could find on the package is that it is labeled "Fossil Shark Tooth", and it apparently dates anywhere from the Eocene to the Cretaceous. Despite its small amount of information, and not completely trusted source, I don't doubt its authenticity, as it holds up appearance wise to other fossilized shark teeth I own, and passes the "lick test". I personally believe it may be Otodus obliquus, but I wanted so
  13. Well over a decade ago I found a Hexanchus shark tooth in matrix in the Monterey Formation in California. It passed through many hands later, eventually ending up with Doug Donald. I think it sold in the auction of his collection when he passed away. Anyone know who has it now?

    Otodus obliquus.... or not?

    Hey all Last week I bought a bunch of Otodus obliquus teeth for a work mate, he wants them for presents for his grandchildren and knows I like fossils so he got me to source them for him. Typical me, not letting an opportunity go to waste, I ordered extra knowing I'd find something to add to my own collection They are all said to come from Oued Zem, Khouribga Phosphate deposits, Morocco. Out of all of the teeth I got (15), all in the 45mm - 60mm range, they all fit what an O. obliquus tooth looks like, apart from 2 which is why I'm making this thread - I'd rather get others to
  15. Found this bone fragment after a storm in folly beach sc. And help identifying what animal it came from is much appreciated.

    Shark tooth id

    Hello! Help please to identify tooth. Height ~ 1,8 mm. Root practicaly destroyed but crown has an interesting shape with some "cavity/hole" and it is not damage (see arrow). Eocene. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!

    Some shark teeth

    Hello, This is my first post here, and although the material is not of much value, I wanted to know who they belonged to. I have these teeth that I bought a long time ago, I bought them in a museum and I don't know where they come from or how old they are. Any suggestion? 1.- 2.- 3.-
  21. I've recently become very interested in the sharks of the Cretaceous. The largest of all sharks during this time period was supposedly Cretoxyrhina mantelli, or the "Ginsu Shark". It likely would've highly resembled the modern Great White. I looked up a few images of their teeth, but I was wondering if anyone who hunts the Cretaceous here on the forum has any of their own? If so, I'd love to see them! Hoppe hunting!

    From the album: Sharks

    A rare symphyseal from Otodus obliquus. ~ 2.5 cm max. slant height.

    Hubbell Megalodon

    From the album: Sharks

    Hubbell (juvenile) megalodon, likely from the East Coast. I don't understand the hype surrounding megalodon, but this one was cool enough for the collection. It has good preservation, and the tip is spalled-off from feeding.
