  1. It's been over a month now since @Jared C and I found the Eagle Ford Xiphactinus. In the weeks that followed our discovery I was able to get in touch with the right people at Baylor University where I go to school and start to organize a retrieval project. Unfortunately I haven't been able to make it back to the site since then as all involved will have to wait for the wheels of bureaucracy to turn enough for us to have the proper permission necessary to return. So I was left with a problem: my first visit to the Eagle Ford turned out so well that I wanted nothing more than to go back, but I c

    Exotic Megs Set Complete

    With the addition of Italy, I'm calling my exotic Megs set complete! There are some really rare ones like Japan and Germany missing, so while I'll keep an eye out for localities I don't yet have, this set is essentially complete after a year of acquiring teeth from around the world and I'm very happy with it! There were some here that were acquired from members, and others yet that members found for me. I thank everyone who contributed in one way or another!

    Extraordinary Common Teeth

    Hey guys, I've been off the radar for awhile .. work you know .. been working on Siggraph for those of you who are familiar with software development. Just wanted to start a new topic here .. This one is right at 3.00" - 7.62cm C. carcharias Bahia Inglesa Formation South of Caldera Provincia Copiapo III Regio de Atacama Chile
  4. 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
  5. I found this shark tooth in a shell pit near Orlando Florida. Was hoping someone could help identify it, and possibly an estimated age. This is my first large and perfectly intact tooth, so I'm pretty excited to find out what it belonged too.

    Shark tooth ID

    Hello! Help please to identify tooth. I think this tooth is from family Triakidae and probably Triakis or Iago. But I dont know for sure... Length - 2 mm. Paleogene, Eocene (Ypresian or Lutetian). Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!

    Tooth ID requested

    So, since I now don’t trust myself to identify even the two types I thought I knew, what’s the consensus on this one and why is it so light? Found on Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

    Unknown Serrated Moroccan Shark Tooth

    I was going through a number of common Otodus teeth for sale at a local rock show and found one with large serrations on the sides. Doing a little research showed two types of serrated shark teeth from Morocco. Otodus sokolovi and Palaeocarcharodon orientalis. The tooth is 3 1/2 cm long on the diagonal. Sorry for the poor photo. My camera isn't the best but you can make out the serrations. Can anyone identify this?
  9. So today I went on my first trip with the Paleontological Society of Austin to the Brownwood area to visit a couple of Paleozoic sites. It was a blast and just what I needed after a busy week. However, I'm not gonna go too far into the details because I plan on writing up a trip report soon. I think I found some pretty cool stuff . Instead, I'm writing this topic because I am simply too anxious to wait on hearing an answer to this question I have. Our first stop was along a roadcut that was situated within the Pennsylvanian Adams Branch Limestone (Canyon Group) and Strawn Group. O

    Isurus retroflexus?

    Hello, I have found this tooth last year in Lučenec region, southern Slovakia. Age: lower Miocene/Eggenburgian (Central Paratethys). Scale is in cm. It looks like Isurus retroflexus tooth, but I want to be 100% about it. If it is the one, I can finaly add the first of this kind to my collection. Thank you in advance.
  12. Hello gang. I am looking for advice from more experienced folks about sifting for fossils. I have a wide range of appropriate tools available to me, but as one that has never really done this sort of fossil hunting, I have some questions before my excursion this weekend. I always have a canvas bag/tube type I normally use for forest floor detritus to find various insects and the like. It has also proven useful in streams and creeks. Very handy as it folds flat and doesn't use up much pack space. However it is in the sieve range of #3-4 (about 5mm +/-). I don

    Shark tooth

    Hello. I found this shark tooth in South Carolina. It is 2 inches and is serrated on each side. Can my one confirm the species? Thanks!

    Cretaceous Fish (Shark) Tooth

    Please identify this tooth Found in cretaceous, turonian sandy-limestone in Poland (Górka Pychowicka, Cracow). This rock is amazing, on left there's Ptychodus decurrens tooth too.
  15. Location: Missouri Period: Pennsylvanian Formation: Iola Limestone (Muncie Creek Shale Member) Hello once again! Today I have a fossil tooth that I happened to have seen while going through my old phosphatic nodules from Muncie Creek and was wondering if anyone could identify it further than a Cladodont tooth. I have googled images of Cladodont teeth and believe it to possible be a tooth belonging to Falcatidae, but what do you think? It resembles a few of these teeth on the chart below in size and form, hence why i'm mak
  16. Hello! These were all found in Monmouth County, New Jersey (Late Cretaceous). I have believed the first tooth to be Xiphactinus Vetus for years but am a little thrown off by the general texture of it and after searching images of Xiphactinus teeth, I can't find another that looks similar. I have found deteriorated Mosasaur teeth with a similar appearance so I was wondering if it could just be stream-worn. The tooth is about an 1.5 inches long, has two very defined cutting edges and a nice curve (which are all consistent with X. Vetus). The last thing I could add - it ei

    Paleozoic Shark Teeth

    Wow. This was one of my favorite hunts I’ve had in a long time. I’ve been looking for Paleozoic sharks teeth for a really long time, and have finally stumbled across them. I took a trip out to southeastern Ohio, and I’m not disappointed to say the least. These sites were really small, but I found a LOT of shark teeth, and fish fossils as well. Here’s the finds: Shark teeth: These sharks teeth are a lot smaller than the ones I find at home, but they’re a whole lot cooler since they’re new. This one is broken. This one’s a really nice sharks tooth. T
  18. The North Sulfur River finally got some rain last week, and I headed out there yesterday morning to see what I could find. I was hoping there had been enough sun that it wasn't still a muddy mess, but that wasn't the case. It was a tough slog, hiking through all that mud. It made fossils tough to spot too, and I didn't find a lot. But I still enjoyed my day in the river. This photo shows what much of the riverbed looked like. Are those footprints from a large bird or small dinosaur?
  19. I decided to take a trip to an Ozan spot after some rain a couple weeks ago. The gravel finds were sparse, but I fortunately remembered to bring some of my trusty excavating tools with me from Dallas to Austin. After the trek to the main exposure at this site, I got to scouring the shaly creek bed. In previous trips, I usually didn't spend much time doing this as I had limited tools for digging. With some newly acquired technology by my side, I encountered a facet of this location I hadn't experienced before. A lot of the fossils that preserve in this formation are too fragile to survive once

    Please tell me the tooth!

    Not sure what this is. For a while I thought it was a hemi but the root is not shaped right near the tooth. The root seems to not be whole, but this may not be from a shark. Seems too round to be a shark tooth. Please help!
  21. 5.25 inches, or 13.335 cm; on the longest side. It has belonged to my father, for many years now; and he recently gave it to me. It's a cherished specimen.

    Worn meg?

    I seem to still be very unsure on determining the presence of a bourlette on very worn teeth (since I think this is my third tooth and post with a similar issue). I think maybe I just don't want to mistakenly call something a meg, if it isn't. Would you say this tooth has a bourlette, albeit a very worn one? Thanks for the help!
  23. Anyone know anything about Californian Helicoprion fossils? I know they’ve been found in Eastern California, but that’s about it and I’d like to learn more.
  24. Back in January I decided to check out the Ammonite Beach at Lake Texoma for the first time. The site is well known for its giant Duck Creek ammonites that can be found scattered all over the shoreline. The weather was surprisingly not that bad despite it being the winter. The water level was quite low and there was plenty of good ground to search along. During my time there, I had some success in finding my own ammonites which gave me an excuse to finally put my rock hammer to use. I stumbled upon some echinoids, but none of them were in all that great of condition, so I might need to head ba

    Today's Massive Desori Mako!

    Hello Everyone! It's been a minute since I've had the pleasure of finding any fossils worth posting here, but I was lucky enough today to squeeze in a couple hours of hunting. I noticed several sets of footprints around my usual hunting site - others had picked through the material recently. Undeterred, I made my way along the river visually scouring every square inch of exposed grey-brown Oligocene formation and gravel. Im glad I stuck with it because I was rewarded with several nice (albeit small) teeth from the extinct mega-tooth white shark, Carcharocles angustidens as well as a slew
