  1. Went fossil hunting for the first time since Holden Beach in May this past Tuesday at Greens Mill Run in North Carolina. Found my best meg EVER!! A near perfect 3 and 15/16 incher (just missing a tad bit of enamel beneath the bourlette on the front). Most megs at GMR are already fragmented and/or worn down in-situ, so extra happy about this one! Also found a Ischyrhiza mira sawfish rostral tooth tip, a huge exogyra, and I believe a nice Chesapectens masidonius? Also a baleen whale ear bone fragment, and a brown item I think might be a worn cetacean ear bone? Also a piece of petrified wood, a g
  2. So here are all of my best finds from fossil collecting at Holden Beach. The coolest stuff to me is the Cretaceous PeeDee formation material. It gives a snapshot (albeit incomplete) of the material available in the PeeDee of NC. Usually many of these finds are sparsely distributed in this formation, but the dredging activity really helped concentrate it. 1st pic: mosasaur teeth and bones (jaw and rib fragments, verts, flipper bones), meg teeth, a horse tooth, a Pycnodontid fish mouth plate, a zipper oyster, and a mammalian astragalus, Lion's paw shells, and a cetacean cervical vert

    Whale vertebrae?

    Found in the Yorktown foundation area of Virginia . My best guess is some sort of vertebrae from a whale but I’m a newbie so fire away! A couple of the pics are the same specimen just from a different angle. The last pic is fossilized just not sure if it’s related to all the rest. Thanks
  4. Collected these in North Carolina this weekend. Angel shark vertebra w/ fossilized cartilage, fish skull cap, mosasaur tooth, soft shell turtle fragment, worn Otodus tooth, goblin shark teeth, crow shark tooth, bull shark tooth, and not sure what the smallest shark tooth is. These come from a mix of Cretaceous Tarheel and PeeDee formations and Pliocene Yorktown formation.
  5. Anyone know what type of vertebra this is? Found in North Carolina, could be from either Cretaceous Black Creek group. 2.5 cm from left side to right. Could it be a plesiosaur cervical vertebra? Or is it Brachyrhizodus spp., a Myliobatis ray? I already have one Brachyrhizodus spp. vertebra and it doesn’t look like this, but maybe this is a different part or the backbone. Just based on size I’m leaning towards Brachyrhizodus, but it looks almost identical to a plesiosaur vertebra. Oooo

    New Yorktown formation mysteries

    Two oddities here, both from Yorktown spoils. The first has a general tooth shape with a double root, but is uniformly coated with a smooth enamel. The broken roots show cores similar to other marine mammal teeth I’ve found. Maybe this is unerupted? The second looks like an osteosed fish skull element but is just huge for the location at 95mm. The porgy occipital elements I’ve found here are barely 15mm long. any direction is welcomed! frank
  7. Greetings again Thisis a second vertebra also found at the Lee Creek Mine (aka Aurora) in Yorktown spoils. It is 50mm in length, rather porous and very light. I was thinking bird, but thought I'd get some other opinions. Any ID suggestions? The photos in order are: "bottom", "top", "side", end 1 and end 2

    Pliocene vertebra Yorktown Fm. Bird?

    Greetings, Since There's not much collecting to be done here, I've started diving into the collection and trying to ID and label. I found this vertebra at the Lee Creek Mine (aka Aurora) in Yorktown spoils. It is 33mm in length, rather porous and very light. I was thinking bird, but thought I'd get some other opinions. Any ID suggestions? The photos in order are: "bottom", "top", "side", end 1 and end 2

    Amber or coprolite or…?

    I thought I had seen the whole gamut of shapes and materials from the Lee Creek mine spoils, but this tiny (2cm) specimen has me stumped. It looks like a tiny brain with “folds” radiating away from a central seam. The “bottom” has a deeper seam, like the meeting of two halves of a walnut. I have found blocks of milky amber in North Carolina before, but nothing with any symmetry. if it’s a coprolite, what’s the seam? Could it be a little skull cast? I have been staring at this thing for a year. Please help. Frank

    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!
  11. 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!!!

  16. 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
