    Some shark teeth in need of ID help

    I have a few shark teeth that require second opinions on the IDs. All are East Coast of the US. First up, a Pungo River micro. 4mm or so. This is a familiar tooth form to me as I’ve seen this exact tooth in STH micros. I had put teeth of this exact form in with Cetorhinus teeth because it’s so common in STH micro mix. I could be wrong about the ID on the STH teeth plus Pungo River is different as I believe Cetorhinus teeth are quite rare in that fauna. Both STH and PR have Cetorhinus and Alopias teeth. I believe there is a close familial relationship between those genera so I figu

    Kamp Ranch Texas Ptychodus Teeth

    I purchased some Ptychodus teeth and I can not determine the exact ID on my own. They are smaller than P. whippeli or P. mortoni teeth I have and bigger than the single P. anonymous tooth I have though that is the species I originally though, and still think these are. They are from the Kamp Ranch section of Eagle Ford in Texas. I consulted a very well put together ID guide here but am still just not sure what I have, other than nice Ptychodus teeth lol Any help would be appreciated.

    Fossil hunting in Antwerp, Belgium

    Hello all, I'm on my first trip abroad and in Belgium at the moment. Going to be heading to Brussels tomorrow but have been researching the possibility of going to Antwerp to search for fossils. I understand people don't like to share private fossil hunting areas but could anyone point me in the right direction in Antwerp? I've attached what I found on fossiel.net but just want to check is this enough to get by or will I end up hopelessly lost? Any advice would be massively appreciated. Thanks Ollie

    Douglas Point Finds ID Confirmation

    Hi all. This past Thursday I made it out to Douglas Point (Paleocene, Aquia Formation). I found the usual assortment of sand tiger shark teeth and some goblin shark teeth too. Unfortunately, finding an Otodus in this formation still eludes me. First is a picture of all my finds. What I'd like some ID help with are the vertebrae, the two bone fragments, and the crocodile tooth. The last tooth is an interesting one. Looks like a Hemipristis serra tooth to me, though I didn't think they're found in this formation. I included an in-situ photo with the characteristic Douglas/Purse grav

    Some Fun Finds at Douglas Point

    This past Thursday, I made a trip out to Douglas Point along the Potomac. I enjoy going in warm weather like anyone, but going during the winter has its own merits. Cool, crisp air, fewer people, possibly some more unique finds. I was the only one on the beach for just about the whole morning and afternoon. Although a little chilly, the right gear made it no problem at all. The trail down to the beach is a bit run down. Lots of broken and collapsed trees covering the trail. I found quite a few sand tiger teeth. I only keep the larger ones now that I find and leave the
  6. Recently I acquired a bulk lot of Moroccan shark teeth after doing some reading and a lot of sorting. I have more questions than identifications. To keep it simple I stuck with the “square rooted teeth for the first round. I’ve come up with five categories 1 two cusplets - Serratalamna? 2 multiple cusplets but small - ? 3 two cusplets - Cretolamna? 4 two cusplets and no or very weak transversal groove - Otudus? 5 strongly reduced cusplets - ? If other pictures are useful let me know.

    Peace River Hunt

    Got out on the river yesterday for what turned out to be a productive day. It was a chilly morning so the wetsuit was a necessity. Even if the air temp is warmer the water stays cold throughout the day. I returned to a gravel bed I found earlier in the week and got right down to digging and sifting. Every clean out of the sifter provided a good number of various small shark teeth. Tiger, Sand Tiger, Snaggle Tooth were abundant. A few small partial megs and even a baby Mako made an appearance. Below is a picture of the best of the shark teeth along with an alligator tooth and what I b
  8. Hello, I've heard that some locations are better than others for finding specific species. My favorite shark teeth to find are those of the snaggletooth shark, so I was wondering if anyone knows where I might be able to focus my hunting in order to find the serrations of my dreams! I live in PA, but am willing to drive as far as Virginia if I have time and money. So far I've found baby H. serra teeth at Matoaka, but as I'm a new fossil hunter I haven't had a chance to check out other sites yet. Any recommendations? Thanks!
  9. Would anyone know of a easy to get to location where I can park and look for shark teeth in a creek or river? I don't have a diving license nor do I have a South Carolina hobby license and I am looking for a good location, also, if there is a great location for finding shark teeth that requires a license, I can try to get a licence to visit that location.
  10. I have 2 small selections of shark teeth that I recently acquired in a collection that I had purchased. These teeth are supposed to have been collected in North Dakota and South Dakota. The first selection was collected on 4-3-1986 in Moffit, North Dakota in the Cannonball Formation, which was referenced by the collector as being Paleocene (58 MYO). The next selection was collected in Edgemont, South Dakota from the Late Cretaceous, Green Horn Formation. Any help on th

    Sifting under snow

    Hi all! Answering @jpc's question about the site's accessibility in winter and if we actually dig under snow. Yes, we do! (something must be not right in the head). Today we tried the dig at -1C'. Had to make a pretty big hole too (the deepest I've seen there). No big teeth found, hopes for the micro-matrix.

    A Physicist's Collection

    While my prime focus is essentially learning how to accurately describe Nature in the precise language of mathematics, I've always been intrigued by natural history - it's actually what started me on the path to physics. The sort of interrogation that paleontology practices provoked me to think and question even further, down to the fundamental science which makes it all work. Collecting fossils has brought a large amount of enjoyment to my life, and is often a welcome distraction from what can sometimes be straining work. The knowledge that I accumulate along the way is also part
  13. Hi, I am a real novice here. I was given several sharks teeth collected on northeast Florida beaches. I am trying to identify them to create a small 'show and tell' for beach goers to be able to ID the teeth they find on the beach. I am now totally confused as some say they are Mako as there are no nibs but there are several examples of Sand Tiger Sharks that have no nibs. I found this forum and am hoping you can help. Also I have no idea what the piece in the middle is. I am assuming it is a broken piece from maybe Tiger Shark? Thanks from a Novice trying my b

    Riker display

    From the album: Sharks

    An assortment of shark fossils spanning hundreds of millions of years. Nothing too impressive, but some nice ones in there. I've found many of these, and bought the rest from online sellers or a local rock store. There are of course a few non-shark fossils: a couple of cetacean teeth, an eagle ray plate, and a sawfish centrum. I also included "shark-like" denticles from the Ordovician. List of species (ordered roughly by "row"): Galeocerdo cuvier Hemipristis serra Carcharias taurus Carcharhinus leucas Negaprion brevirostris Alopias latidens Sphyrna zygae
  15. Got to the beach early this morning and had the place to myself with a great gravel line to search. Got a nice handful of teeth including at 2.23” damaged otodus, a 1.42” otodus, and a 1.14” croc tooth.

    First Shark Teeth

    Found my first two shark teeth. The first one was sticking right out of the clay, staring right at me. The other I found raking through some gravel. Both are goblin sharks, I think.

    Fossil shark teeth

    I recently received some micro matrix from @thelivingdead531. Again thank you so much, it is an awesome gift! But I have been trying to ID the shark teeth and can't figure out what any of them for sure are. I would really appreciate any help. Also sorry about the quality of the pics. I may be able to take better pictures, but only if I need to.
  18. Yesterday I scouted Calvert Cliffs Beach to see if my friends would be able to join me on a fossil hunt there. As this was only my third lifetime hunt, I'd only been to Matoaka prior, and wanted to see if the path to the Calvert Beach was accessible enough for a friend using a cane and someone more out of shape than I am. That said, I'm not fit myself, so the 3.6-mile hike to and from the beach was not easy. However, it was gorgeous! As many people will tell you online, the cliffs at Calvert Beach are not legally accessible; the state park service has closed off access to them due
  19. I recently acquired two Cretaceous lamniform shark teeth that I'm trying to identify. The first one, from Russia, was sold as Cardabiodon sp., but I'm curious if that's correct or if it's something else. The second tooth, from Texas, didn't come with an ID. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide! #1 - Cardabiodon? sp. This tooth is from the Cenomanian of Russia and was found near Fedorovka Village, Tambov Region. The tooth measures 28.51 mm on the slant and 14.91 mm at its widest across the root. #2 - Unidentified

    Shark tooth arrowhead? Or just broken?

    Hey all, I've been on the fence about this tooth. It was a beach find (Venice, FL), so I think it is a little damaged and tumbled. Could the root be notched on one side? (The other side looks broken off.) Is the center boring potentially natural? Many thanks!

    Teeth from Douglas

    It has been a long time since I’ve gone out, it was nice to have the place to myself. Not everything shown, but a variety of things.
  22. Hello to all of you guys, a couple of weeks before i asked for help in relation with some shark teeth, and the help indeed was very nice! A couple days before i was back in field trip and found some more teeth from the same strata, and would need your help for the correct ID (hopefully at species or genus level), you guys are awesome!!! Here´s the list of the fossils (each step of the ruler is 2mm): 1) A tiny tooth with very small roots and 3 denticles, the central and main one is triangular and very oblicuous 2) A tooth with very triangular cusplets and

    POC & NSR Day Trip- Nov 2021

    I turned today into a fun adventure! Today I was to go to jury duty but was dismissed at 9am. Since I had the day off from both my job and school I decided to tell the spouse to grab my hiking bag out of the closet and get my bucket out the back yard. The best thing about where I live in TX at the moment is that I literally live smach dab in the middle of 2 famous fossil hotspots in north Texas- both are about the same distance. The day was new and I was free. I wanted to try them both! So I did. NSR first. Today was perfect- not too hot not too cold. Clouds! Breeze and shade.

    Douglas Point 10-17-21

    After going several weeks without fossil hunting, due to weather, schedule, etc., I finally made it out to Douglas Point (Paleocene, Aquia Formation) in Maryland this morning on a very pretty, cool autumn day. My first fossil find of the day was a small piece of ratfish plate. Below is my first shark tooth of the day (a sand tiger, like the vast majority of teeth found here). By the standards of this site, the quantity of shark teeth was low today, but they were in better than average shape, which isn't a bad trade off. Many appeared to be fres
