  1. Fossil Tooth for ID

    Hello All, this was found in Micro Matrix from the basal Calvert lag deposit in Central VA. Oligocene, Eocene, and Early Miocene teeth can be found here. About an inch in length, 14/16 in width of root, cusps about 2/16 Maybe @isurus90064 might know this one. Or any of you VA shark tooth experts out there, as I know there are many! Thanks, FA

  5. I donated 20,000+ Eocene marine Virginia coprolites to the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science in 2015. There have been several formal presentations given on these coprolites to date and a major paper is in final review. To see numerous coprolite pictures and read about/see previous presentations check out the below TFF link: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/50059-what-ate-what/& A copy of the latest poster presentation given on these Virginia coprolites at the GSA Annual Meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, USA on September 22, 2019 is below (If you click on the below picture which will open it in a new window and click on the + symbol twice, you can read the text): Marco Sr.

  7. Barely a month had gone by since my last trip to New Mexico and Colorado, but I already had plans for this trip in the works. Primary focus this time, which was a solo trip, was fossil collecting, visiting well known sites that have been on my radar for quite some time. I flew out to Salt Lake City and drove directly to Kemmerer, WY. My first stop there was Fossil Butte National Monument: Here is a view of the visitors center (free admission) and the surrounding barren, but awesome landscape that surrounds it:
  8. Deep-water trace fossils

    Hello friends! Today I'm seeking your help to identify a few fossils that I've found over the years. They are trace fossils and I collected them in northern Italy, along a creek. They were not in their original setting, but nearby outcrops dated to the Cretaceous or the beginning of the Caenozoic. These deposits were formed by the action of turbidity currents, in deep waters. If you have any idea for the ID, they are more than welcome! Thank you!
  9. ID for this bivalve from Morocco

    Anybody have any idea on the indentification and age for this bivalve? Purchased online ex china (was advertised as from the "Devonian of Yunnan", but is clearly from younger deposits of Morocco). I have found conflicting ages on the net: either Cretaceous or Eocene. Some say from the Dakhla region others from the Essouria region.
  10. I got back from my last fossil hunting trip just 3 days ago. My middle son did all the work but im the one who came home a bit beat up! I was rather tired on this trip but it was still a lot of fun. I stopped by some freinds of mine and bought some more of those agatized Aturia and then stayed with some more friends of mine and did some trading with them. With the few crab concretions we found and the ones I traded for I came home with a few more to prep this winter. Only thing I didnt like about this trip was the rain! and the traffic on I-5 passing Tacoma!!! RB This is at the end of driving aaaaaaaaal day long and having a drink. The rains just started and didnt stop till noon the following day! Here is a crate of crab balls from 2 different sites. A very lovely sight for a crab guy. Here are some crab balls I traded for. The one in plastic, (3 pieces), is the one I'm most excited about. Should be a very large and very nice crab!!! With these 5 Aturia I now have 10. These are one of my most favorite fossil! My youngest son was in eastern Montana while I was in Washington. This is not the best fossil but still purty cool. This looks to have been preditated apon but still makes for a realy cool ammo on concretion!

I forgot to mention sizes they are only small 2mm-3mm at Most
  16. My girlfriend, Valerie and I planned a two week trip to New Mexico and Colorado to visit friends, see scenery, and attend the Peach Festival in Palisades. Of course fossil collecting would be a part of it. I spent a full day with PFOOLEY outside Albuquerque in the Puerco Valley hunting ammonites in the Carlile Member of the Upper Cretaceous Mancos Shale.

  18. Shark tooth identification needed

    It's been a couple years since I last posted on this forum. Life got a bit more hectic due to health issues and a work promotion. Recently though I've finally had more time for fossils. I found a shark tooth today on the way home from work that I'm not familiar with. The tooth was found in a pile of limestone large gravel, sand, and chunks of chert that had been brought to the site from an unknown but local mine. I just happened across the pile unexpectedly and decided to stop even though it was drizzling out and I was hearing a bit of thunder. Other fossils I found in the same pile are shell castings, sponges, bryozoan, and a few echinoids. The location is the Ocala area of Marion County, Florida. I believe this part of the Ocala limestone and is eocene in age. While the root is a bit damaged and there's a chip in the blade the cusplets look to be in perfect condition. I'm leaning towards this tooth being a mackerel shark but it's not an exact match. Can anyone correctly identify it?
  19. Potomac Area mystery

    Hi everyone Not much new to report this summer, so that is why I haven't posted in awhile, but I found something interesting while fishing last weekend on the Potomac River near the mouth of the Port Tobacco River. It is about 6 cm wide at it's widest point. Any help with an ID would be greatly appreciated.
  20. Hey Everyone - I hope someone can provide some insight and help me identify this fossil. I would really appreciate it! I found this strange looking tooth (at least I think it is) a few years ago in San Antonio, Texas. It feels and looks like a rock as far as texture goes but it's shaped very similar to an animal tooth. I've attached photos for reference and labeled each one: Front Back Side Front Height - 5 inches (12.7 centimeters) Front Width - 4.5 inches (11.43 centimeters) I've also attached a Geology Map of Texas which outlines where rocks of various geologic ages are visible on the surface of Texas today. On the map, I circled in yellow the location of where San Antonio, Texas is for reference. Hopefully it can provide more insight for you. I'm not even close to a geology expert but limestone is very prominent in San Antonio. The city is also home to The Edwards Aquifer which may or may not be useful. I'd be happy to answer any questions and I can also take additional pictures if needed. Looking forward to hearing back from you all!

  23. Two shark teeth.

    The first tooth is truly tiny, infact I'm not entirely convinced it's a shark tooth due to it's size. So perhaps a very small species or a juvenile? The tooth easily fits inside the 0.5cm divisions on my cutting board, and every time I take it out of its container i'm terrified of loosing it. It was found by sieving the sand at Bracklesham bay, and would have come from the Eocene Bracklesham formation. The next tooth is from the Cretaceous chalk of Bedfordshire, not sure if it's the Lower or Upper chalk formations but I assume it's from the lower chalk. It was in a pile of rocks next to a footpath, There was a short cliff nearby but i'm sure the pile was made by a farmer taking larger rocks out of the field next to the path. Anyway I have no clue as to what genus or species these are but I was hoping there would be some shark tooth experts on here who would know. Thankyou.
