    NC Yorktown formation mystery

    I only try to post real mysteries and this is a specimen that is unlike anything I’ve found from Yorktown in that it is exceptionally dense. It has a fin shape and could almost be the dorsal process of a vertebrae except that the striated pattern across the face of it doesn’t look familiar to me as such. Feels like fish material? When it’s wet, the color is bright orange, almost like enamel. I don’t know, it’s just… weird. Thought I’d bring it before the court. Thanks!
  2. I found this in the Aurora Fossil Museum dig pits, so it’s likely Pungo River formation (Miocene), although there’s a chance it could be Yorktown formation (Pliocene). Any idea what it is? My best guess is some sort of jaw bone, maybe from a fish.

    Tortoise or sea turtle peripheral?

    Hi all, I found this turtle peripheral in eastern North Carolina. I believe it is from Cretaceous Black Creek group sediments, but Pliocene Yorktown formation is also possible (both are marine). A person I showed it to said it was a Hesperotestudo (tortoise) peripheral, not sea turtle, so thus terrestrial (I guess it might be terrestrial Pleistocene, but that would be unlikely, I don’t find much of any Pleistocene material where the shell was found). However, it actually looks similar to a peripheral I have from a known fossil sea turtle. Is this peripheral sea turtle or tortoise?

    Pliocene trip

    Decided to head to a stream with my kayak on my day off recently. I frequently go to this site because it is not too far of a drive. This site gets collected a lot but it looked like no one had been there in a while. Without people walking over the site, small fossils start to be exposed. I crawled around for a couple hours and found many small fish bones and otoliths. Here are some photos. Lots of inarticulate brachiopods. Only two species found here. The round Discinisca and the lingulid Glottidia which is always broken. There is a Lepophidium (Cu

    Greens Mill Run crocodile or mosasaur tooth??

    I found this tooth in Greens Mill Run in Greenville, NC. I’m leaning towards croc due to the size of the dental cavity relative to the size of the tooth, but perhaps it is a mosasaur. It has one carina on the anterior side of the tooth, none on the posterior side. Also, if it is croc, is there a way to identify whether it’s Cretaceous or Pliocene? Or if either croc or mosasaur, perhaps genus ID? Thanks!!!

  7. A while back I collected several pieces of sizeable whale bone from Greens Mill Run and was able to ID them as to specific skeletal element (several were ribs, verts, mandibles, etc.). However, this one piece is fairly sizeable and has a distinct shape (it is worn down some), pretty sure it’s part of a skull, but can’t figure it out. Any whale experts out there think they might can help? It’s from the Yorktown formation, and even though Greens Mill Run cuts through other formations, this one came from a section of the creek with Pliocene exposures and the other whale bones I was able to ID, so

    Aurora Dig Pit Fossils

    Soooo a few days ago new material was dumped at the Aurora Fossil Museum. Well, I made the trip there before the Saturday crowds, and was well rewarded!!! These were the best finds of the day =p btw the stuff underneath the shark verts are 2 stingray spines, a filefish vert, a burrfish bone, a beat up dolphin jaw bone, and what I think is some type of fish skull cap
  13. 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

    fish or mammal jaw segment

    Hello, I am curious about this piece of what i think may be a jaw fragment. Found on James River in Virginia within Yorktown Formation. There appears to be one intact tooth and a portion of an adjacent tooth that has broken, leaving a cavity. Measures approx 2 x 1.5 x 1 cm. (The background grid is in centimeters) Appreciate any/all feedback. Thanks!!

    Marine Mammal Vertebrae?

    Bone fragment found on the York River in Virginia. It is the Yorktown Formation, Pliocene epoch. I'm wondering if it is a vertebrae fragment, and what species it might belong to. It's convex on one side, and concave on the other.
  16. Hi everyone! Little over a week ago I recieved some new bags of microfossil matrix and this time there was a bag with material from the Lee Creek Mine, Yorktown Formation, Aurora, North Carolina, USA (Miocene, 14,5 mya) This material is quite rich in shark teeth as I found little over 90 shark teeth in it. I have photographed a couple of them already and posted them in my microfossil topic. But since I doubt I will get many help with the identification of the teeth there I am going to repost the first batch of teeth here (I apologize for the repost admins) and upload the re
  17. Found this odd 9" long jaw-like fossilized bone in a small creek within the Yorktown formation in Virginia between the York River and I-64. It is atypical of the Baleen Whale and Ice Age mammal bones I have found in the same area. Any help with identifying this specimen would be appreciated.
  18. Hi everyone I just ordered some more microfossil matrix samples, most of which are rich in shark teeth. But I would like to know what to expect from the matrix, which means I am looking for websites of pdf's which describe the species from those locations. The first is from Lee Creek Mine, Yorktown Formation, Aurora, North Carolina (Miocene), I did find an ID section of Lee Creek teeth on elasmo.com but it wasn't extremely extensive. The second sample is a shark tooth rich Limestone Block (which still needs to be disolved) from the Mesaverde Formation, R
  19. Found this in the Yorktown formation in Virginia. Not sure which bone this is from a Baleen Whale. Any ideas?

    Globidens alabamaensis?

    While collecting at a location in SE Virginia which produces a mixture of material from the Eocene Nanjemoy Formation and late Miocene/early Pliocene Yorktown Formation, I was shocked to find what I believe to be a cretaceous Globidens sp. anterior tooth fragment. My only explanation for this would be that it must have been redeposited into the Eocene beds and finally exposed with rest of the material. The texture is classic Globidens. The only other species with a slightly similar texture found within these formations (though still markedly different), would be Squalodon sp., however if th

    Strange bone pattern

    I found this shard of bone on the York River in the Yorktown formation, and the pattern on one side is curious. I’m wondering if anyone has seen this, or if it’s a diagnostic texture? Thanks for any help!
  23. Just one tooth from the York River in Virginia this weekend... but I’ll take it!

    Thoughts on This?

    Hello! Anyone have any ideas? I believe we are looking in the Yorktown Formation in Virginia. Found right next to Lots of Chesapecten Shells. It feels like stone but is a very strange shape. Almost all the stone coming out of the layer is pebbles and somewhat rounded.
  25. These shells all look similar in nature except the last one, pictured by itself. Any way to identify, specifically? Thank You! Freshwater Creek, very slick light brown clay bottom which is blue grey once penetrated and dug. Also sand.
