    Very odd whale tooth

    We have company coming and I am forced !!!! to clean up a room full of bags full of fossils. The reckoning has arrived. It is slow because I slow down for interesting fossils. Over the summer, I obtained about 10 badly beaten whale teeth from the phosphate mines in Bone Valley. I did not think they would be worth the $25 I paid but the selleris a friend. In checking out that bag , I discovered a very odd tooth. I had another whale tooth about the same length (57 mm): Has anyone seen this type of whale tooth variation? Is it pathological? Thanks for
  2. Fossil whale rostrum in large concretion at oregon coast. Mid miocene in age.
  3. Hi all, I found this piece of bone in the Oligocene Chandler Bridge formation in an area just outside the town of Summerville South Carolina. Is this potentially one of the halves of a whale or large dolphin atlas vertebra?

    Whale or Mammal Tooth ID

    Fossil recovered inland Venice, FL. Located in Pleistocene material while digging pond. Equus, Camel, Tortoise, Alligator, and Whale teeth have been found in this material. This is the first time I have recovered this type of tooth. Other whale teeth I found nearby are 2x as long and 5x wider. Looking for some help with this ID. Thank you in advance. -Michael
  5. Hi! I found this bone on a remote, virgin beach in northern Iceland just the other day. I’m completely green when it gets to those topics and have thus no idea what it can have come from. Possibly a piece of a large fish or seal vertebra? Any ideas? Can anybody help me identify the bone?
  6. I have missed fossil hunting most of the last month with rains making the rivers and creeks too deep, travel north and other commitments. So today , I went out with frequent hunting companion, Steve. Steve sells many of his better fossils, but he knows that I focus on small horses and marine mammal. When he finds one of those, he may give it to me, and I decided how much it is worth. I had a very good day, but Steve had a better one. and he gave me this 3+ inch whale tooth. At 1st I thought it had an enamel tip, which would have been really surprising. So, cementum fl

    Whale tooth?

    Hey prob got a simple one, thinking it's a sperm whale tooth, but it is not hallow. I found it in in Sarasota FL in mostly a bunch of shell. I seen what looked like whale bone fragments, tiger shark teeth, Hastalis and great white teeth and randomly a rhino tooth, but not in the exact pile. It's 4.41"

    Florida Broken Whale Tooth Core?

    Hi All, I found this fossil at Honeymoon Island, Florida and it appears to be a broken worn tooth? Looks like the enamel peeled off. I'm curious to hear what others think. Approximately 1 5/8 L x 3/4 W inch. Thanks Lynn

    Whale Otolith, bone, or rock?

    Hi guys! This was found off the coast of North Carolina by a scuba diver, My first thought was huge weathered otolith but I'm not sure and would like a second opinion if it might be another bone or a rock. It's a little over 5 inches. Thanks!

    Is this a whale bone?

    I'm thinking this a whale bone, maybe a humerus? Found in Mendocino, California. Thanks for your help!
  11. Found in the Lee Creek spoils pile. Is this a whale vertebra or possibly a digit bone? The somewhat flattened and oval cross section kind of looks like images of whale digit bones to me, but I am far from knowledgeable about this. Bonus with this find is the shark tooth embedded in the concretion on the top of the fossil. Any guesses as to what it is?

    Help ID'ing Cape Town Find

    Hi there! My girlfriend and I finally managed to get to the fossil spot here in Cape Town - South Africa (a spot where fossilized shark teeth and whale bone wash up onto the beach) and we are both hoping that what we have found is actually fossilized bone! If any of you could confirm what this is I would be extremely grateful!
  13. Hi everyone. It has been a while since I have made a post. Between some health issues and all the RAIN we have had here in NC this summer, the trips have been few. Not to mention all of the quarries still being closed due to covid. Recently I was granted permission to search a small, private agricultural limestone marl quarry. It is Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, Comfort Member. Now before anyone asks, no I will not say where or nor will I be bringing anyone to it. It is very small and my permission is very tentative. I have to get permission each time I go. It is a smorgasbor

    New additions to my collections!

    Hi everyone! I want to introduce some new additions to my teeth collections. 1. Nodosaur tooth from Judith River Formation This tooth is from Hill Co. Montana. Has nice set of serrations, and 10 mm wide. There are two genus of Nodosaur known from Judith River F. : Edmontonia and Palaeoscincus, thus, this is a Nodosaurid indet. 2. Pygmy sperm whale (Kogiopsis) tooth from Hawthorn Formation This tooth has no tip, but have enamel and root. This is slightly larger than 3 inch
  15. Found these in a creek in Maryland. I’m most interested in identifying items 1-4 but let me know if you have any ideas for the rest too. I think 8 might be the edge of a turtle shell because it’s wedge shaped. Item 7 looks like a rib to me.
  16. Made a recent trip to Greens Mill Run and got quite a few nice fossils, particularly fossil bone. Large fragment of a Pliocene baleen whale lower jaw bone, whale rib fragment, baleen whale tympanic bullas, unfused whale vertebral epiphysis, Chesapectens jeffersonius, other Chesapectens spp., clams, etc. All collected in-situ, all from the Yorktown formation. Also quite a few sharks teeth collected from gravel bars. Also one pic, the one with the belemnites lined across the top, is all in-situ Cretaceous stuff. Great trip, digging the stuff up was a nice change from all the gravel sifting haha
  17. I’m almost certain this is not a fossil, but didn’t know where else to go. My buddy found this tooth/tusk in his attic and I’ve been having a tough time telling for certain what it is. No idea where it was found. Sperm whale was what first came to mind, but I don’t see a very clear boundary between the crown and the root. Doesn’t seem to match smilodon, walrus, boar, or any other similar possibilities that came to mind. Does anybody more familiar with this type of stuff have any idea what we’re looking at? He confirmed that it’s hollow which is another check in the sperm wh

    Calvert cliffs

    Recent trip to Calvert cliffs, finally was able to get a boat out on the water after years of planning. Did pretty well, I’m hoping the haul is a little bigger next time because it’s a lot of paddling. Here’s the haul. This is a large whale vertebra I found. All the shark teeth I found at Calvert. The large mako was in a fall and I was hoping it was whole but alas, the time was broke. Oh well. Still a not bad day.

    James River

    The James river was not what I had expected. I was hoping to find a meg the size of my hand, but that didn’t happen. No worries, I had a lot of fun. I saw a river otter, a lot of osprey, eagles, and more wildlife which was fun to look at from a distance. The first day of the trip, we went over the east over formation, I collected mostly whale bone from that day and nothing else spectacular. It was only when we went to a Yorktown exposure on the last hour of the trip that I found three stunning chesapectens, including what I think the biggest one to be a jeffersonius. Later that day, I went to

    Whale? Crocodile? Bear?

    Hello! I found one yesterday that's stumped me. I've used the NC fossil club book and the Google and I've not seen anything like this. The smoothness of the upper part is throwing me off as the other whale teeth I have are textured. Same with the crocodile. This was found in NC where the Pliocene Yorktown and Miocene Eastover are exposed. I can take measurements later if needed. Thanks in advance!
