  1. Following up on the artificial tooth set I recently constructed for the Paleocene sand tiger shark Striatolamia striata, I decided to see if I could put one together for the Miocene snaggletooth, Hemipristis serra, using teeth I've collected along the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland. I haven't found a great resource for an H. serra dentition, but I consulted a few different sources to get a sense for the arrangement, including Fossilguy.com, J-elasmo (which has a dentition for the extant H. elongata), and various TFF threads. The resulting tooth set is below. While I've fou
  2. Hello! We are from Pittsburgh, planning a trip to Williamsburg area in early June. Have heard a little about fossilized shark teeth and would love to do some exploring with our five year old who is getting very interested in the topic. At this stage, the simplest things impress him (and us). Anybody have suggestions as to where we might find some fossils and have a nice family adventure? I am a bit nervous about all of the warnings around private property in Virginia. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Shark teeth

    Can shark teeth be found along the Jersey Shore.....specifically North Wildwood beaches?
  4. I finally booked a tour with Mr. Mazza on the Peace River. I talked my daughter into driving down from NC, and my sister here in Orlando to make the trip with me. Well, we weren’t disappointed in the least. Between my daughter and I, we found slightly over 500 teeth, not sure how many my sister found yet. Besides teeth, I found a few horse teeth and one capybara tooth. here are just a few of the many treasures found.
  5. Day started out foggy, but eventually got better.

    Mesaverde Formation Round 2

    I have been a little bored lately and missing micro matrix searches. It’s been awhile since I’ve gotten to enjoy hunting for tiny shark teeth. I got some more matrix from the Rollins Member of the Mesaverde Formation. My first time through that matrix produced one of my favorite finds, a 1mm Scyliorhinus tooth. This formation doesn’t provide much in the way of complete teeth but it is a fauna that was really quite diverse. The first search was with less matrix but I found enough to want to do it again. This time I have more matrix and in varying states. Some is broken down, some i

    Purse State Park 4-5-21

    I was able to get out to Purse State Park this morning for a Maryland Paleocene (Aquia Formation) hunt. I usually prefer the nearby Douglas Point when I hit the Potomac River but I decided to give Purse a try as I haven't been to that stretch in a while. I was the second car in the lot but first on the beach, which is always the best way to start the fossil day. My first good find--a croc tooth, though the enamel is very worn: Followed by an Otodus -- also quite worn but a decent size for the site (approx. 1.25"):
  8. My son asked to be taken to find shark teeth for his birthday. We are planning a trip to Calvert Cliffs in May. Does anyone have any suggestions to make this kids bday a success?
  9. I've wanted to put together an artificial tooth set of Striatolamia striata from the Aquia Formation in Maryland for a while given the abundance of that species in the formation. Until recently, though, I was missing a lot of the less commonly collected tooth positions--extreme posteriors, intermediates, and first lower anteriors. After searching through several gallons of Potomac River gravels over the last couple of months, I finally filled in the gaps. I put together the tooth set below a few days ago and just finished mounting them in a riker box I received in the mail yesterday.
  10. I have an upcoming trip around the Point A Dam in Alabama. Is this site still in good shape with the recent weather that's been cranking through the south? If the dam is out, are there any other good sites still in existence in 1-3 hours drive south of Andalusia? I've read about a lot of northern panhandle sites in Florida but wondered if they're still in existence or have been wrecked with Hurricane Michael. Also, I work mostly dry sites in the Paleozoic of West Virginia. Is this a site where muck boots are warranted? If so, are mid calf height enough or better to have waders that
  11. Hello everyone, I'm new to this so I don't have much experience IDing teeth. I found a few shark teeth at Calvert Cliffs in MD and I was easily able to identify most of them by comparing them to some photo guides online, but this one didn't seem to quite match up to any standard examples I could find. It's just over a centimeter, very symmetrical except where a top corner is broken off, and has pretty clear little serrations. Hopefully an easy one for someone who knows more than I do! Thanks!

    Unusual shark teeth

    I went out to Douglas Point (Paleocene, Aquia Formation) in Maryland yesterday and found a couple of unusual shark teeth. The tooth on the left is about 1.5 cm long and I'm pretty sure is a pathological Striatolamia striata. The tooth on the right looks a bit like an Otodus obliquus or Cretalamna appendiculata to me. Since it's only 1 cm long, Cretalamna might be the better guess. I'd appreciate any thoughts on the IDs. Thanks! Here are some more views of the sand tiger on the left. The root is both relatively large and very flat. It appears to be chipped i

    Potentially interesting Calvert Frm teeth

    As I’ve mentioned in other posts, we got quite a bit of matrix from @sharkdoctor recently. Much of what he sent was from the Calvert Formation. Most of what we found was fairly easy to identify as Aaron provided the guide for the Calvert. When I got the very end of the bag from lag site 210, I found a couple of teeth that I could not match to those in the guide. They appear to me to be Catshark but of a different morphology than those in the guide and quite a bit different from those I had found. They are a bit larger than the other Catsharks I found and overall seem to look more

    Cookie Cutter Creek

    Many years ago, Cookie Cutter Creek was the first location I had the opportunity to hunt Florida fossils at thanks to @jcbshark. That day, while he screened a 5 gallon bucket of matrix containing the Cookie Cutter teeth, I looked for megs. What an ameteur I was, not appreciating the special teeth Jeff had in his bucket of gravel. As time has advanced, I became interested in the micro fossils from this creek and decided on a trip to the area back in February to try on my own, sifting some matrix to take back with me. Hopefully the elusive Cookie Cutter (Isistius) tooth would be amongst all thos

    Teeth from Douglas

    It was very cold this morning, but I still managed to do some sifting for small teeth. I was disappointed that I didn’t get any “hound shark” teeth, but I still got some good items.

    Fun with Calvert Formation micros

    We were very fortunate to get quite a bit of Calvert Formation micro matrix and some great teeth from @sharkdoctor. This is my first exploration of this formation and I am loving it. Lots of Carcharhiniformes material and it will take me a little time to ID some of Carcharhinus teeth but that is a good learning experience. I need the practice. The very fine matrix has been my favorite. I’ve found a few Scyliorhinus teeth, a few Squalus teeth and a few Mustelus teeth. Raja teeth are way more common than in STH. I’ve searched a lot of STH matrix and found 2 Skate teeth. It took me 1

    Unknown shark teeth

    These show up fairly often in the basal pecan gap which has been the focus of my searches recently, nearly all the shark teeth here have the root dissolved so that diagnostic piece is missing but this looks unique enough I'm sure someone has seen something similar, they seem to have a sort of nacre look to the white part so maybe not sharks tooth. This is the largest I have. Microscope pictures with a phone are shaky at best. end on and the back And a smaller more typical example any help

    Southeastern United States Sharks

    I received a lot of teeth from the Southeastern United States today. I couldn't identify three. While many of these came from Bone Valley, I can't say for certain that these three are from that locality. The only provenance I have to go with is the Southeastern United States. Here are front and back shots for each of the three teeth. The first two are 1/4", while the last one is 1/8". Each has cusps. I would appreciate any help with this. Thank you, Bellamy

    Pecan gap shark teeth

    A couple hours searching a new to me exposure of pecan gap chalk turned up some pretty nice stuff. First a couple of shark teeth, I don't know the identification. Actually this one might be a fish tooth: I love the color on this one. Also got a lot of fish scales and a small fish vertebra. Vertebra: Scales: A good sized ammonite. And a UFO. An unidentified fossilized object, if

    Russian Sand Tigers

    I purchased some shark teeth recently, all or most of which appear to be sand tigers, from Russia and am hoping some folks on here might be able to help me identify them. The information from the seller, who is in Russia but didn't collect these himself, is that these are Cretaceous teeth found in chalk deposits on the banks of the Don River, near Kalach-on-Don, Volgograd region, Russia. He doesn't have any more info or know the exact geologic layer. I haven't been able to find much information from searching online, but using the app Rockd, it does appear that the geology in the a
  24. First of all, my utmost sympathy for all of you in the midwest who are snowed in and freezing off your extremities. The worldly weather patterns are wreaking havoc on us lately. Over here in southern Germany the sun is shining again, the temperatures have been rising for the last few days and the last of the snow has turned into vapor in my parts. So it was warm enough to mount my bike again today and take a trip to my favorite shark tooth site. Here's what I came up with. A good selection of various species and a nice Galeocerdo aduncus posterior.
