    Cretaceous Shark Tooth?

    Anybody can identify this Tooth? Found in cretaceous, turonian sandy-limestone in Poland (Tyniec, Cracow). I think it's a Shark Tooth, or other fish but I don't know which exactly.

    Texas Shark Teeth

    Can anyone help me ID these two shark teeth, they are from Texas so that might help limit options.

    Sharktooth ID

    Hello all, Can someone help me to identify this tooth? (Neogene age). Found a while ago in Belgium. Very small (8-9mm root with). Kind regards!

    Shark Teeth ID Request 3

    Hi all, I have these 2 teeth that were given to me several years ago, I'm unsure what they are but think they are the same species. Could someone please ID? Many thanks, Amy

    Possible Parotodus benedeni tooth

    Hi all, A longer time ago I found a thick shark tooth from the Tertiary (about 3 cm long). From the Netherlands. It looks like a Parotodus benedeni tooth (a very thick rooth and thick tooth overall). It looks like the one on this site: LINK Perhaps other opinions?
  6. Last summer I posted a trip report about finding some Pennsylvanian black shale in a river bed in East Central Illinois http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/106753-628-illinois-black-shale-trip-w-listracanthus/. I was able to visit the site again once more in the fall last year when the river was running much lower and collect more and larger pieces of the finely bedded and fissile shale. Since then I have been slowly splitting and going through the rocks I brought home, and finding many interesting fish parts- that is definitely the dominant fauna presen

    Miscellaneous Bones

    All found along the beaches anywhere between Onslow Beach and Holden Beach, North Carolina. If you would like more pictures of anything please let me know, thanks. The shark tooth is strange to me because I thought it was a fragment but the serrations on both edges make it seem otherwise like a newly grown tooth? I have plenty of shark teeth and no problem identifying them but this one stumps me. As far as number three goes, I thought it was a piece of turtle shell but my geology professor thought it may be a very worn tooth, however he wasn’t sure.
  8. Dear all, Your admins have given me permission to post about my book: Neogene Sharks of Antwerp here, and for that, a big thanks! I'm sure many of you invested in the shark tooth community have seen my book go by somewhere by now, but just in case you did not, here is the full story; First a little introduction; For who might not know, my name is Stephane Knoll, I am a paleontology enthusiast from Antwerp, Belgium. My focus lays on sharks and especially the Neogene. Luckily my town, Antwerp, is one of the best spots on earth to look for fossil sharks. The fauna we fi
  9. Howdy! I recently went to Post Oak creek, and ended up with more matrix than I can immediately use. Rather than let it sit unsearched, I figured it was worth a shot to post some up for trade here. Each bag has a pound of material in it, and they have proved to be very productive. I’ve found numerous ptychodus teeth, a (poorly preserved) lobster carapace, shark and fish vertebra, various bones, coprolites, and of course, lots of other shark teeth. So there’s lots of different things that can be found. I’ve got around 25-30 lbs I’d be willing to trade. I am primarily interested in verte
  10. *FOSSIL FEST 2022!!* Did you know Coastal South Carolina’s lively prehistoric past makes the Lowcountry a unique mecca for a variety of fossils? They range from sharks' teeth, whale, mastodon, giant sloth, sea urchin and primitive horse fossils! Both amateur collectors and paleontologists will share their unique and intriguing findings at this two-day, family-friendly event--back for the first time since 2015!! The two-day event will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily Saturday, Feb. 26 & Sunday, Feb. 27. Displays of local fossils and even some exotic fossil material will be on-hand
  11. 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!

    Why no Ptychodus in NJ?

    Teeth of the shell-crushing shark Ptychodus sp. are fairly common in the Late Cretaceous deposits of Texas and are also found in Alabama and Kansas (and maybe other states). However, Ptychodus seems to be completely absent from the Late Cretaceous deposits of New Jersey. Why is this? One explanation I can think of is differences in age- the Late Cretaceous formations at Big Brook and other famous NJ sites are Campanian or Maastrichtian, while my understanding is that the Late Cretaceous deposits of Texas and Kansas are a bit earlier. So perhaps Ptychodus became extinct a

    Cretaceous of Limburg

    Hello all, Today I found some very cool (and rare) Cretaceous fossils in Limburg (The Netherlands). Belemnites, one sea urchin (Echinocorys sp.) and 2 rare Phragmocones (from Belemnites) were also found (two on the left corner). And also sharkteeth! Can anyone help me with identifying the shark teeth? (max size is 1 cm). Kind regards, Ruben

    Megalodon!

    Hello all, I made two drawings (and edited both of them) of a O. Megalodon (Otodus Megalodon) shark. The first one is a pencil drawing (black-white) on a original white background (made it coloured, blue). The second one is a Megalodon smelling whales. Enjoy! Perhaps other people can post here their Megalodon drawings/paintings. Kind regards, Ruben

    Fossil id (Calvert MD)

    Hi! First, thank you to everyone who responded to my older post asking for fossil hunting tips- I used as many as I could and I found some great stuff! Here's what I found and can't ID myself from my latest trip to Flagponds (Calvert MD). I was thinking 11 might be snaggletooth shark, and 19 and 20 looked like they might be from some kind of white shark though I'm not entirely sure? In addition to those I'm especially interested in identifying 1, 3, 4, 5, 8-9, and 13 but haven't been able to so far. I'd appreciate any help identifying these and the other teeth I have pictured! 36-48 are

    Calvert Beachcombing Tips?

    Hi guys! So I'm planning to go back to one of the Calvert County beaches to try my luck again- I haven't had any success with finding teeth bigger than about a quarter inch and I'm hoping to find something a little bigger next time. My current technique is to dig up sand from the water and sift through it super carefully- should I switch it up and try something different to find big teeth? If so, does anyone have any recommendations for how to find them? And, final question, which beaches are good for finding larger specimens? I know Purse and Matoaka are good for quantity but I don't know whi
  18. In the last couple of months my son and I have purchased some unprepped Lebanese fossil fishy's. There are four known species of guitarfish from the Lebanese provinces of Hakel and Hajula. Rhinobatos maronita is one of these; this species was fist described in 1866 by Pictet and Humbert. Some purty dang cool stuff but the guy we are buying from does not know how to wrap and send fossils over seas! Our last shipment came in many pieces! Not good. My son is working on him to make it right? Aside from that Im going to do what I can to fix things. First up is one side of what I think is

    Calvert County Fossils

    Hi everyone! I went to Flagponds in Calvert County MD a few weeks ago and came back with my biggest *actual* fossil haul so far (I posted here my first time with about 50 barnacle pieces)! I know there are a few ray plate fragments in here, and I've included what I think are bone pieces although I'm not entirely sure. Anyway, I'm having a lot of trouble identifying my shark's teeth, so any help with this would be greatly appreciated! I'll post numbered photos of my finds with this. If anyone needs a zoomed in, clearer or different angle pic I'm happy to provide more. (Advance apologies for the
  20. Hey there folks, I am cataloging some specimens I collected back in 2008 from the Bergstrom Formation of the Navarro Group in Travis County, Texas. I have some great papers on the invertebrates but not the vertebrates. The age is Maastrichtian. In particular I have a rather nice Enchodus tooth and some small, but well preserved, shark teeth I am trying to ID. I have the Walton & Farrish book and have visited Oceans of Kansas but they are still not getting me where I want to be. Thanks up front, Erich

    Fossil Shark ID help please.

    Hi folks. My turn to ask for ID help. I’m more of a dinosaur tooth and fossil guy. My friend gifted me these fossil shark teeth. Can you take a look and help me with these? I own a couple Meg teeth and other Shark teeth, but these are giving me a little trouble, or I’d like verification. The first two (A) and (B) have a bourlette, but proportionately large serrations like a Great White. Except GW teeth don’t have bourlettes. I believe (C) and (D) May be Carcharocles hastalis. Are they? I believe (E) is a Mako. But what species? Lastly, is
  22. Not sure where this belongs, but for those of you that are shark fanciers I recently found that the definitive guide, "Sharks of the World: a fully illustrated guide" by David A Ebert, Leonard Compagno and Sarah L Fowler with illustrations by Marc Dando is being published with 80 additional pages in October. If you have been looking for a copy you may be aware that the 2013 edition currently sells for a ridiculous $600 to well over $1000. (Best I can find right now is $591) You can preorder a copy of the new expanded version now
  23. Mysterious event nearly wiped out sharks 19 million years ago By Yasemin Saplakoglu, Live Science, June 3, 2021 "It's unknown whether the ancient sharks died off in a single day, weeks, years or even thousands of years."

    Shark Teeth St Augustine Florida

    Ok I was lucky to find these shark teeth in St Augustine last week. But help with identification please. My guesses are Mako top left followed by Sand Tiger and lastly a small Great White? Or could that be an extinct Mako? Thanks for your help.
  25. Are Isurus praecursor and Macrorhizodus praecursor synonyms? I have conflicting accounts on this and would like clarification please. Thank you, Bellamy
