  1. Hey all! Between an ill-timed conference, election month, the pandemic, online teaching, and a few other issues, I was way too stressed out and busy to be on here regularly since October. Also, in mid November we began digging up a small basilosaurid whale in Harleyville, SC - very likely to be the most completely known specimen of the dwarf basilosaurid Chrysocetus, and perhaps the most important basilosaurid discovery in North America of my lifetime. I did manage to write a blog post about our fieldwork, so as an apology for being AWOL and only getting back to identifying cetacea

    Prehistoric Whale Vertebrae?

    This is a fossil found near many sharks teeth in the Northern Neck of Virginia. It was found on the side of a cliff in Westmoreland County VA. Any help would be much appreciated!

    Mailbox Whale Jaw

    Last couple of days, I have been searching the internet, for Hipparion horse teeth, Beaver Molars, and small whale teeth driven by TFF threads to answer questions in my mind or help to identify a fossil. I was doing a google search for "Whale tooth Florida jaw" and triggered this fossil, supposedly found in the Miocene of South Carolina !!!! That is close to Florida so we might have the same fossil whales here !!! and @Boesse might help me to identify it. The final aspect is that it was not all that pricey, and since I only have 2 pieces of toothed whale jaw in my collection,

    Peace River Adventure

    Got back to the Peace River yesterday for what turned out to be a beautiful day with a variety of finds and new friends. On arrival at the river a little before 8 am the temperature was a balmy 48*F. The temperature was projected to rise into the mid 70's but I started out the day in my wetsuit and dive boots with hoodie overall to combat the early morning chill. I usually hunt north of Payne Creek State Park but decided to go south today where Megalodon teeth are more easily found. I haven't targeted the big shark teeth since last spring. I returned to the area where I found m

    Whale teeth ID?

    Anybody know what kind of whale these teeth belong to? Found them at a random flea market?

    Peace River Oddity

    I went hunting today in my favorite place -- the Peace River. The day was gorgeous, Sunshine, 70s and I had a 5 mm wetsuit. The river is down (quickly 2-3 feet). Someone upstream closed the locks of a lake or something similar this last week. I was in an area that I had not hunted in years, but I recalled some of the landscape and tried a few of my old spots. Pretty good , but not great. Some nice Hemis, but small shark teeth were few. Found a horse ear bone, a small armadillo scute, a very small canine, but they came slowly, so I move trying lots of different locations. The last one g

    Whale Bone? From Myrtle Beach

    I have another mystery fossil. We found this a few weeks ago at Myrtle Beach. I looks like some kind of fossilized bone, but I'm such a newbie, if it's not a sharks tooth, croc tooth, ray plate or barb I'm at a loss at what I'm looking at. It looks like it might be a part of a whale vertebrae, but that's just a guess. Any help would be appreciated. the last shot is the best of the other fossils we found. It was pretty slim pickings! Thanks

    A Christmas present

    My son lives in Texas. In normal years, I see him for Holidays, sports events, summer vacation. Not normal this year. I had not seen him for 14 months. He has been visiting his Mom on Florida's Atlantic coast the last 3 weeks. On Thursday, he drove to the Peace River and we went hunting in relatively deep water. I found more of the good stuff. Short Thursday night and back to hunting a different location Friday. This day , he had the lucky charm and picked up 4 !! whale teeth in 45 minutes. I could not have been more pleased. It was a grand day, cool but the sun shining. We were recall

    Weird sea mammal bone

    Hi guys, I found this bone on the Bulgarian shore of the Black sea, near Balchik. In the region there have been found the remains of cetotherium sp., dolphins, seals, flamingos and others. I am wondering though what exact bone it is and of course of what. I thought that it may be a part of a fin or something like that, but I failed to find a photo of a bone like this. Any help for the identification will be very much appreciated! And happy soon to be new year!!

    Whale rib fragment or something else?

    Found this on a beach with some shark teeth and other bone fragments. Most of the bone around there is very worn and tumbled, making it impossible to ID. This piece however has some interesting features and could possibly be identifiable. I'm thinking its a piece of the top end of a whale rib? Anybody recognise this as something else, large terrestrial mammal maybe? Thanks

    Shark tooth embedded in bone?

    Hi everyone, A friend found this bone with what looks like a shark tooth embedded into it while he was hunting in Bakersfield near Shark Tooth Hill. Does it look like an embedded shark tooth? and what type of shark do you think it could be from? He found several Hastalis and Planus teeth in the same layer. I really appreciate all the help the community has provided me. I learn something new every time. Thanks!

    Rock ...or Bulla

    Chances to get out hunting have disappeared. A lot of rain with Hurricane Theta and then some tropical storms. There is a lot of activity late in the season which means higher faster water in rivers and creeks. So I look back on recent curiosities. Hunting 10 days ago, I pick up a curious rock that seemed to have texture, broken at one end. It was white inside. At a distance of 10 feet and 2 hours digging, I found the smaller end. That might be a shovel mark, and for a second I thought I might have broken it, but 10 feet apart, no way. I really

    Thoughts? Found in Va Creek today

    Thoughts? Found this heavy bone in the creek today. We have found whale bones there before. Also found what I believe is part of a vertebra along with some huge Chesapecten.
  19. I am wanting to put together a complete spine of a whale. I have found many vertebrae, but unable to find a diagram of a spine. I'm starting at point A so anything could help. Even different species of whale. I'm have collected most of them from Sarasota County, Florida. Any links or suggestions would be great Thank you! Brandon
  20. Hi All, I could use some help identifying what looks to be a tooth? I found it on Wrightsville Beach, NC. Is it a tooth? If so, what kind? Porpoise? Whale? I have been searching with no luck so I thought I would ask the kind people on this forum. Thanks, J

    Aurora, NC - Squalodon?

    I have a dozen teeth from Aurora, North Carolina that I believe to be from the toothed whale Squalodon. Instead of uploading photos of that many, I'm uploading a few that are representative of the dozen and detailed photographs of three of these. For context, the first tooth here is 2.5" long and 1" wide at its thickest.

    Whale vert?

    Hi all! Found this on a beach where late miocene fossils are often exposed or washed up. Im thinking it's a whale vertebrae, but would like the input of the forum members. Whale or something else?
  23. I have here a 3" piece of bone, found in Calvert Cliffs, Maryland. I'm not well-versed enough with these to narrow it down further from marine mammal, and am hoping that these photographs contain some identifying features that may be useful to one more familiar with these. Can it be narrowed down any further?

    ID help

    I’m in need of some help on some old finds from Aurora. I thought shark nose, crocodile, whale tooth, what do you think.
  25. Dear Fossil Forum Members, My friend recently found this bone-looking piece on the beach near the St Marys formation at Calvert Cliffs. We have heard that many of the bones washing up are fragments of whale or dolphin bones. Since this piece is so big, we are thinking its some sort of whale bone. Could anyone please help verify this? Sorry there are no proper forms of measurement, for reference the piece is roughy 4.5in (11.5cm) wide and 6.5in (17cm) long. Here are some photos:
