  1. Miocene unknown item. It is 15/16" long. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Miocene unknown items. I appreciate any help with ID.
  3. Miocene. Thinking possible small tooth?? It is only 7/16" long. Thanks.
  4. I went through some of my wife's collection today and came across something that I have no idea on. I'm used to the random bone frags but this looks different to me and I can see why she grabbed looks like a small turtle's head and that what she thought it looked like too when she grabbed it. Please weigh in on this, I'd appreciate any opinions!
  5. Another beautiful day in VA had us running down to the river despite the bad tides. It wasn't as exciting as last week's trip but we did have fun as usual. The only reason I'm even posting this trip is because we found a couple of unknowns that we need some assistance in I believe may be from a turtle and the other looks like it is some sort of tooth, but I can't say from what. I'm going to post them both up over in the Fossil ID page too. Total haul, I like the little Mako. I'm thinking this might be part of a turtle shell, thoughts? Bottom Top Side. Unknown tooth? (It is just to the right of the Makos in the total haul picture) Oh yeah, my wife found a whole shark...pretty sure it is modern though!
  6. This is posted in the fossil hunting trips as well, they were both found at Stratford Hall on the Potomac. The first I think is part of a turtle shell but that is just a guess. The second looked like a tooth when I found it sifting, but I honestly couldn't say for sure. I'd appreciate any help I can get in identifying these. Thanks! Unknown #1 - Bottom view Top view Side view. Unknown #2 Looking in the end.
  7. Ok so I'm brand new here and I'm hoping you guys can help me out. I found this what I think is a fossilized bone (maybe skull) fragment washed up on the beach at westmoreland state park in montross virginia along the potomac river. The area, I believe, is part of the calvert cliffs along the chesapeake and therefore should be from the Miocene. I've been trying for months to figure out what this thing is and the best idea I have come up with is maybe a skull fragment from a miocene dolphin of some kind but I'm honestly not completely sure it's not just a rock. I may have gone overboard with the pictures but I wanted to make sure you guys had the best possible understanding of what this thing looks like. Its about 5cms at its widest point. Thanks for taking a look.
  8. Hi, Here is a very weird sharktooth from Hoevenen (BE) --> Miocene. I can't find anything that looks similar to it, therefore I'd like your help on this one. Note that the tip is a bit broken off. Also, does anyone know a good guide that could be used to IDing sharkteeth? Best regards, Max
  9. This tooth was found in a Miocene area a while ago. I thought Mako at the time and didn't give it much more thought. I have recently seen some makos someone else has found over the last couple years and they don't seem to have the bulk of this this. This one is 2" long but a nice 1/2" thick. Any help with ID is appreciated.
  10. Hi all, Last weekend at the fossil fair in Ede I bought a big box full of great fossils, but I need your help with some of them. Here are some sharkteeth that I bought. They were found in Florida, but no location was given. Any Florida hunters recognize those colors? They are from the Miocene. I'm assuming some (first picture) are Negaprion, but I don't know the species, and I don't know about the other teeth. All help is welcome! Max
  11. I don't usually post bone fragments but this one was odd enough that I thought I would ask the experts. This bone was found on the Chesapeake bay on Saturday. It looks like it has a line running down the center, making me wonder if it is some kind of sternum. Any help is welcome. Thanks!
  12. This was my first trip to the Potomac in a month, hard to believe it had been that long. What an incredible day on the Potomac it was! My wife had never found a Megalodon tooth she found three! I too got into the action and found my biggest ever, the crazy thing was that they were all found in an area the size of our family room. We also found some large vertebrae, I dug two up while sifting and my wife found one at the water's edge...that one of was identified as coming from the tail section of a whale. There was a tour going beyond the ropes and the leader stopped long enough to provide an identification. Even though we had a banner day on the beach, I was jealous of all the orange vests heading past the ropes to the off limits areas...the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, eh? I sifted most of the day, I was lucky enough to find a couple of dolphin teeth for my efforts. I also found what is obviously a crab claw, I just don't know if I is a fossil or not...please weigh in. It is hard as a rock but I just don't have the experience enough to tell. Total haul: Megs a little closer. Dolphin teeth. The crab claw...please weigh in on whether it is an actual fossil or not. The vertebrae:
  13. This piece of chert is about 10 millions years old that was found east of San Francisco, CA in volcanic and lakebed deposits. What are the 0.3 to 0.6mm wide tubes- palm fiber?
  14. Hello, again I am asking for your kind help. I have here a small arc clam (ca. 8 mm wide) which I identified as Striarca lactea. It is not described from the area (Miocene - Badenium of the Styrian basin, Austria, Florianer Schichten), but by Hoernes (1870) from the Vienna basin of the same age. Are there any other possibilities? Its from an intertidal or shallow subtidal environment and associated with "Tellina", Cordiopsis isclandicoides?, Acanthocardia sp., Anadara sp., "Tritia" and small (3-4cm), irregular sea urchins of unknown genus. Thank you very much your help! Franz Bernhard

    I'm not sure what type of vertebra this is as it doesn't resemble a whale or dolphin vertebra. I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that it's a bird. Maybe someone can help me identify it.
  16. From the album Calvert Cliffs - 3/7/17

    I've never seen a vertebra or bone like this. It's definitely bone because of the porosity on the sides. On the left of the picture there are two knobs poking out on the upper left and bottom left. I have no clue were these fit into and there's a depression between these knobs. I think vertebrae and bones are really neat because they all fit together like pieces in a puzzle and remind me of playing with legos when I was little. Props to anyone who can guess what this is but my bet would be some sort of whale.

    Assortment of shark vertebrae.
  18. From the album Calvert Cliffs - 3/7/17

    A side view of the previously supposed bird (i.e. gull) vertebra.
  19. From the album Calvert Cliffs - 3/7/17

    Here's an assortment for shark teeth including a snaggletooth (Hemi.) and requiem sharks (related to modern day bull sharks). It wasn't a great day for finding teeth because there were no tides and most of the old stuff was picked over, but I had fun.
  20. From the album Calvert Cliffs - 3/7/17

    Lowest tide I've ever seen at the cliffs (Bayfront Park)!
  21. From the album Calvert Cliffs - 3/7/17

    I thought these were interesting. Though not fossils they seem to be some form of metamorphic quartzite granite. I recently went through the Virginia Beach museum were an info panel said rocks from the Appalachians had shifted towards the bay over time, and helped to compose the glassy quartz based sand kernels. These rocks are evidence of their origin.
  22. From the album Calvert Cliffs - 3/7/17

    Whale vertebra with the missing fans. I've found one before that was at least 4 times as large, and it's neat to find a smaller specimen.
  23. This amazing patho is one of my favorite teeth.
  24. Miocene. Thinking molars. One looks like its broken in half width wise. Thinking camel?? Full one is 2 1/4" long, 1" wide, about 1" thick. Broken one is 2" long, 1 1/4" wide, 7/16" thick. Thoughts.
