    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
  2. Greetings all. I just took a quick trip to visit the area where caldigger lost his life one year ago today. It was a sad visit to his beloved "Meg Hill" Bakersfield, but it was a little "respecting" I had to do. I didn't do much prospecting, but did spend a few minutes checking tailing piles. One thing I found and took a picture of but didn't take home, is something that resembles some sort of shellfish fossil. Either that or it's just a concoidal fracture of a mineral that's present. I just figured I'd get some opinions. As I said, I left it in Bakersfield, but thought it somewhat image-worth

    Unknown STH teeth

    Hi everyone, I have a few teeth that I have always wondered about. I found another one the other day looking through washed matrix. Let me know what you think. Largest tooth is 18mm smallest is 9mm. I have only these three from all the years of collecting.

    STH fire zone hemi’s

    Carcharocles megalodon (Agassiz 1843)

    From the album: Pisces

    5cm. at the base. 4cm. high at the tip. Posterior Miocene Found at Sharktooth Hill, Kern County, California Thanks to Tony (ynot) for this one.
  6. After posting ID questions on a couple of STH whale bones that were mostly unidentifiable, I decided I'd post images of the one whale fossil I have that seems like a slam dunk ulna (Aside from an easily ID'd ear bone.). It may be debatable as to which specific family category, but at least its location on the whale is pretty certain, right? Too bad it's a partial, but it's all I have. It looks a lot like one that is called Tiphyocetus temblorensis in an image from the California Academy of Sciences. Tiphyocetus Temblorensis Even the mottled coloring is similar. As I mentioned, this
  7. I collected these at Shark Tooth Hill quite a few years back. Pretty sure the big one in a pinniped (Allodesmus?) limb bone of some sort, but not sure which one? The fish vert I'm guessing came from something pretty large too. Any insights or comments will be appreciated.

  10. Took a jaunt out to Shark Tooth Hill area, Ersnt Quarries to be specific, yesterday. Not too productive, but a few decent Makos, a little (7mm) fish vert, and the one inquired about here. It has the look of a Tiger shark of some sort, but is only 11mm across the root (cube it's on is 1" square). It has serrations on the cusp(let), distal and mesial sides. I don't recall the Galeocerdo Contortus I've seen having all three surfaces with serrations. It looks a lot like a Hammerhead, but I don't see serrations on the distal side on the crown on it. Can someone tell me what this is? Many thanks. C
  11. Oh, and one other tooth that I (actually my dig-happy girlfriend found the Tiger) found at Ernst yesterday. It looks like a relatively common lower Mako, but has such a bulbous root on it that I originally thought it was the elusive Paratodus Benendeni. However, it not having a bourlette leads me to believe that it's truly a false, False Mako. Thoughts? The blue cube is 1" square. Many thanks. I just realized that the false False Mako even has a false bourlette (Mineral staining) on it.
  12. And so I return with another question about a particular, probably cetacean, bone. In my last adventure, we ascertained that a piece of bone, with cylindrical resemblances, was from a rib. With how little curve it had along it's length, I suspect it was from a large creature. I also have another interestingly shaped/textured bone fossil from the same general, Miocene, area in Bakersfield. As you can see, the glued specimen is a bit over 150mm in length, and sits about 70mm wide(tall?). One side is very flat along the length of the piece. Since it has what appear to be termination point
  13. Greetings, all. Recently a friend gave me a rather large chunk of fossil bone from the Shark Tooth Hill area of Bakersfield. While originally we thought it might be a rib bone, I now think that it being so straight for the length it is, as well as the larger radius, that it might be a piece of a jawbone. Perhaps a partial jaw of a Miocene baleen. Mysticete? Perhaps there's no way to tell? Any opinions are appreciated. Thanks ahead of time. Cheers.
  14. Hey Hi Y'all, I have been searching some very fine (nano) matrix from Shark Tooth Hill. The matrix went through the window screen but not the "grease splatter" screen. I have not taken any pictures with My scope yet, but thought I would show a "teaser" to peak some interest... My finds so far. Largest pieces are about 1 millimeter.

    Bakersfield display

    For your viewing pleasure I present one hundred cleaned and placed shark, pinniped, Cetacean, and ray teeth from Bakersfield. Tomorrow I’ll glue them to the back board with epoxy and have a label created at the very bottom. FYI @digit @Malcolmt @caldigger @Kurt Komoda @SailingAlongToo @WhodamanHD

    Shark Tooth Hill Thresher?

    This came from Ernst Quarries last year at slow curve. I don't think this is a hooked Mako because of the micro serration on both sides of the tooth, so what is it? I know I failed to include a scale but this tooth will just cover an American Quarter. Thanks in advance!
  17. Finally making some progress at our Slow Curve lot. My son pulled out the first meg! Also found a few nice hastalis and planus as well as a bird sacrum.

    Fall STH Trip

    Decided to take a day off while working in California. One of my coworkers was interested in going for a dig so we headed to Bakersfield. Met Rob at the gates at 7:30 and headed in. This was the first time I have had the time to spend an entire day. (Also the first time I have been there in under 100 degree temps.) Rob led us to Slow Curve and we began digging. Was a fun day. Found a few nice teeth and left with five gallon pickle bucket of matrix to look through back home in Dallas. Airport loves me when I check in 80 lbs. of dirt. Found a nice 2.1 inch hastalis which may not be big to some

    Whale ear bone with stirrup??

    Went to Ernst quarries last week and found this whale ear bone. When I cleaned out the matrix this small bone popped out. My thoughts are that it might be a whale stirrup bone from the ear. If that is the case, what are the odds it is associated to the earbone found in the same matrix?
  20. Work has me in Sunnyvale CA but I have Sept 30/Oct 1 free to fossil hunt. I'm not bring dive gear but I'll bring a hammer & chisel if anyone has any suggestions. Trilobites or Shark teeth or similar. Thanks, Calvin

    Interesting Tooth From STH

    Hi Everybody, I found this tooth the other day and it looks different from all the other teeth I have found in the STH area. The tooth resembles (to me) a Isurus lower but it has clear cusps on both sides of the tooth. I looked on elasmo and I don't see anything that looks quite like it listed for Bakersfield. The only thing I saw that looked like it had cusps was a catshark but the root doesn't seem to match. Maybe a Isurus Retroflexus? I'm stumped please weigh in with ideas. (I will try for better pictures tonight) Thank! Jesse

    Trip to Shark Tooth Hill

    I went to the Ernst quarries at shark tooth hill last weekend and had a great time collecting teeth. I'm new to the area and hadn't collected there before, but I met a couple there who were very experienced and helped me identify a lot of what we found. I've attached a picture of what the landscape looked like as we were getting ready to leave. Really a beautiful area, in a desolate sort of way.

    Shark Denticles

    In a recent post about denticles (here), it was mentioned that most of the dermal denticles we find are usually from rays, and not sharks. Ray denticles are much larger than most shark denticles, especially the big sharp thorns common on some rays. I was determined to finally find a few nice shark denticles for my collection - I've already got plenty of ray denticles, but I had never found any from Cenozoic sharks (I have a few tiny Paleozoic denticles, but those are much different looking). Shark Tooth Hill is a site near Bakersfield, California. It is Middle Miocene in age. I had some left
  24. I had to make a business trip to California and to the San Joaquin Valley this week. I planned for a partial day on Thursday to take some time for myself and do some hunting. After checking the weather, it was clear it was going to be a scorcher even for a Texan but I figured I would take my chances with the elements and book some time anyway. I got in contact with Rob at Ernst Quarries and arranged for a half day dig. We met at the gate at 8am. At first I thought I was at the wrong entrance since I was the only one there. Rob pulled up and told me there was a possibility I could be the only
  25. Well the stars aligned or maybe it was really just my schedule but I finally had the opportunity to do a short trip to the Ernst Quarries and hunt for some of those great Miocene makos I have seen on other posts here on the forum. I had to be in Bakersfield for work last week and went on the website for Ernst Quarries and saw that they were closed on the one day I would be available to hunt so though a little dissapointed I decided I could at the very least check out the Buena Vista Museum of Science and Natural History during my spare time. I looked up their website to see when they were ope
