    Coniasaurus Teeth?

    Hi everyone, We found this at the Arlington Village Creek Park. The water is getting low and has exposed some of the creek bottom. We have found shells, an urchin and some Native American tools out there as well. *If you go out there, be aware that there are plenty of snakes! We purchased the book "A field guide to Fossils of Texas" and think the teeth could possibly be Coniasaurus (marine lizard). The teeth are not dark brown or black, does this mean it is not a fossil? There seems to be a set of main teeth, with a set of replacement teeth underneath. This is very small, as you can see t
  4. Heading to Amelia Island (Fernandina Beach) Florida tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone had any last minutes tips to help maximize my finds. I have maps printed out of where the dredging spoils have been laid, so hoping to stay in that area. Searching primarily for Sharks Teeth or whatever else may lurk. I would be grateful for any info at all, Thank You!

    Megalodon Tooth

    nice meg found just over five and a half inches!
  6. We went on a canoe trip yesterday in the peace river in Florida and found these among other fossils. We have been doing internet research ever since. We've been going back and forth over horse, bison, beaver... we have no idea. This is our first ever fossil outing. Please help us ameturs!!!! The teeth are about 2-2 1/2 inches long.
  7. Like many people here in eastern NC my first full fledged exposures to fossils was at the Aurora Fossil museum. Growing up here, I had seen and found my share of smaller sharks teeth and "petrified" clams as we called them, but never thought much about it. Never had anyone able to expose me to the world of fossils.(Plus, I was much more interested in baseball ..... then girls.) After I had grandkids a friend said, hey you should take them to the fossil museum in Aurora. So I did and the rest is, as we say, history. I was amazed at the teeth and everything else that was on display there. The f

    Fish Fossil?

    I came across this cleaning in a house in sweden that havent been cleaned for over 150 years, found other stuff there too like stoned wood and shells. Anyone know what this might be? I have more pics if needed.
  9. Matoaka Cabins St Leonard MD is open for 2012 & Beach Hunting The wife passed away last fall and the husband is unable to run the business but the children and their partners are trying to make a go of it this year. You can't beat 6 dollars a night camping (2 day minimum). Its pretty rustic, no showers, cold water available and an a very vintage out house. But your 100 feet from the beach and hunting for shells and teeth. And electric is 3 dollars a day. Or day access to the beach for 4 dollars a day without camping. Or spend 500-600 and rent a cabin for a week with all the comforts o
  10. Hi guys, ran into a snag again. I 've got an unpolished Copal from Taiwan. Unfortunately, I haven't actually heard of Taiwan having copal deposits, so I highly doubt its actually from there. Anyone's got any clue to where or what Copal I am looking at? Next up, two shark teeth from the Ambon Island of Indonesia. I feel the one from the left is from a mackeral shark, maybe even Sand Tiger. The one on the right I feel is a mako, or dusky shark. Unfortunately I am no expert and so I would appreciate input from any experts here. If it would help, the teeth on the left is thick and the right is
  11. Dear Experts, Allow me to introduce myself as a layman fossil digger hailing from South-western Germany. I’m a little bit specialized on (Swabian) Jurassic outcrops as well as adjacent areas like the Molasse basin. I found the attached teeth and jawbone two years ago in the upper Dogger (Callovian or “Ornatenton”) of Siblingen (Switzerland, Canton Schaffhausen). Unfortunately I smashed the brittle material a little bit with my hammer before I recognized that it’s something special (at least for me); however following some tinkering at home I was able to do a partial reconstruction of the te
  12. Hi there, Me and my family are going to Cape Town on the 1st of April and plan to have about 10 days here. We all love fossils and have done a bit of hunting in England and found the odd Ammonites, I have seen that cape town has a lot of sharks, I just wanted to see if anyone knows of somewhere to find some sharks teeth on the beaches around cape town (we dont mind traveling a bit). Any tips of finding them is much appreciated. Thanks Mark

    Unidentified Shark Teeth

    Hi all, this will not be an easy identification. I bought these 3 shark teeth from a 'Whitby Fossil Package' two years ago, and they were labelled simply as 'Shark teeth from Whitby, Yorkshire'. I 've asked a member here who didn't think these shark teeth were really from there. And there's also the matter of their species. Each tooth is roughly 15-20 mm long. Personally, I feel that from left to right, they belong to a bull shark, sandtiger shark and a mackeral shark. Unfortunately I am no shark teeth expert, and would greatly appreciate it if any experts could shed some light on this iss
  14. Found this tooth about 10 years ago while digging on some property of ours. It was found inland from the Charleston coast about 45 miles. Can someone please help me ID this tooth and an approximate age of the fossil? Any information somone has will be greatly helpful, here is a picture of it, ....

    Weird Day...Teeth ID

    Half a year ago in Poland on holiday ( i used to live in Poland, but I moved to UK ) I was going for a walk with friends when my one of my friend's suddenly saw a weird "stone" which turned out to be a tooth. We couldn't take it out so one of my friends went to get a shovel ( he lived nearby ) and so we started digging. Then we saw this giant tooth! I We were all in shock! it was just a normal pathway covered with normal stones. Then we decided to dig futher and there was more teeth in the ground! I was amazed as I couldnt find any other types of fossils ( where I used to live ) than annoying
  16. I 've always been a sucker for dinosaur and fossil jaws and teeth. I am unable to locate both Ichthyosaur and Xiphactinus jaws or teeth online however. Do they not shed their teeth often like sharks or mosasaurs? Or does anyone know where I might locate Ichthyosaur and Xiphactinus teeth at reasonable prices?
  17. Since it was a particularly warm day for winter, I decided to take a stroll down to the beach (Breezy Point, MD) and do some fossil hunting. It was a great time despite the fact that I wasn't alone, there were hundreds of baby jellies scattered about in the water! For the most part I stayed on dry land until I noticed a really good looking shark tooth being guarded by a few jellied. I ended up using a piece of driftwood to shoo the them away until it was safe enough to stick my hand in the water and grab the tooth. What about you guys? Anybody else here on Fossil Forums have jellyfish rel
  18. any help indentifying any of these items would be much appreciated! thank you in advance
  19. hello guys, I found these stones which look to be some sort of indian axe head possibly and some sort of tool that looks to have used for scraping hides possibly. Also i found these shark teeth and what look to be be some sort of tooth from a dolphin, or reptile. I am not sure and new to collecting. I also found this really cool piece of coal 3 feet beneath a sand bed which has a fossil in the lower right hand corner. I would love any help indentifying these items. Thank you
  20. Hey all, I am continuing to work on the Helicoprion mystery and need to address a basic question. How do shark grow their teeth? I know that they form under the "gums" and progress posterior to anterior. What I am looking for is the actual formation of the tooth. I have been searching for a while and can find nothing definitive. Any literature on the subject wold be greatly appreciated. I am trying to either support or dispute the thought that the whorl of the Helicoprion starts in the center with new teeth being formed and the teeth grow larger until they erupt and are eventually ejected.

    Prehistoric Fossils In A Cave

    Hello everyone! I have been looking for a realy long time on internet, for all kind of prehistoric sculls, and haven't managed to find one like this, can anyone enlighten me with knowledge of this ''prehistoric'' creature? Right below this i found teeth everyone says are from prahistoric shark, i found that to be quite a big of coincidence since the scull is obviously not from a shark, i found another scull like this on the cave wall in front of this, just in more bad shape and i failed to take a pic of it, so they certainly are sculls, just what could it be. These are the teeth:
  22. Hi All, We went fossil hunting in Post Oak Creek near Sherman, TX and found some teeth. Was wondering that they belonged to... Based on my web searches and visual comparisons, the #5 & #6 teeth look like they may be shark teeth, but the rest were tougher to place. Any help would be appreciated. thanks in advance Vinu

    Show Us Your Large Shark Teeth!

    Hey everyone, It seems alot of members collect shark teeth, So lets see the monsters of your collections! Go ahead and share your 3" + shark teeth! Meg- 3.11" SC Otodus- 3" Morocco
  24. Just curious since I've been browsing a few sites, looking for some new Dino teeth to buy for my collection. I've noticed though that America sites all seem to be a heck of a lot more expensive than the English ones. Like Rebbachisaurus teeth for example, they all seem to be $100 dollars plus on America sites but an English ebay seller regularly sells them for under £10 and one English fossil site I found has quite a few for sale for around £15. Just wondering if fossil collecting is much more popular over in the States or if there's another reason for the huge difference in prices
