  1. I needed something to satisfy my itch since I still cannot get out. So i had purchased a box of matrix from Lee Creek. I spent the weekend seperating the matrix into 4 different sizes. I was excited to try my smaller double decker sifter and it worked perfect. I also used that over a window screen. I found a ton of new items that I do not have in my collection. Including my first croc tooth. It is super tiny but it is my first. These are my finds after my first run through. I think I am going to have to get some type of magnifying glass for the smaller stuff. Any feedback on incorrect ID's is much appreciated. Enjoy the pics. Sawshark - Pristiophorous Croc Tooth Basking Shark - Cetorhinus maximus Whale Shark - Rhincodon Typus Dolphin Tooth Hammerhead - Sphyrna Zygaena Mako
  2. Aurora, NC Shark Teeth

    I have been working on reorganizing my collection the last few days. Today it was looking through my finds from my trip to Aurora, NC many years ago. I was able to identify everything except these 6 teeth. I understand they are not the best examples, but since it was my only chance to visit I kept everything that I found. Any help is greatly appreciated. #1 - maybe Carcharodon hastalis? #2 - maybe Carcharias sp.? - there is a little wide cusplet next to the crown
  3. Aurora, NC Vertebra

    I found this vertebra several years ago in the fossil pit next to the Aurora Fossil Museum. I initially classified the vertebra as whale, but as I go back through my collection, I am beginning to doubt my identification. After doing my own research I think I have been able to narrow it down to Odontocete, but I was curious if there is a way to narrow it further. Perhaps dolphin? But again, these are only guesses. The pattern on one side of the vertebra is very interesting; you can see it in the second photo.
  4. GMR Currently Open????

    Anyone know if the park is currently open? How's the hunting been there lately? Thanks. I really need to get out and hunt some shark teeth.
  5. Tar River NC Find

    Need some help with this one. I think it's fish, but beyond that I'm lost. Found on the banks of the Tar River in Eastern NC -- I believe Pliocene, Yorktown formation (other NC members please correct if wrong). First thought was fish tooth in a fragment of jaw but its all one piece, so not likely. Tooth with a strange piece of attached root, or not tooth at all, but bone?? Scale divisions are 1mm.
  6. Aurora find

    Found this a while back in Aurora in the piles at the museum. It has cusps but no serrations was a little puzzled about what it might be from that location.
  7. Greetings! I am new to fossil hunting and have been doing a couple beach hunts in North Carolina with some success. I finally made it to Greens Mill Run for the first time and was not disappointed. My two buddies and I each came away with some interesting finds. Their very first sifts included the Mosasaur and Sawfish teeth, respectively! What are the odds!? We spent 5 hours on the river and found many smaller teeth and tons of belemnites. At our last location I pulled up this megalodon tooth! (almost whole darn it) My first megalodon piece that nearly resembles a whole tooth! Looking to plan another trip out there soon, if anyone is interested in linking up. PM me!
  8. Megalodon?

    Found this in the river in North Carolina, pretty sure it's my first meg.
  9. North Carolina Teeth??

    Found these fossils in the river in North Carolina. No idea what they are, doesn't look to be shark teeth.
  10. Shark tooth? ID in NC

    Found this a few weekends back on a sandbar off of Cedar Point, NC. Has a pretty unique shape compared to other teeth I’ve found. Hoping someone can ID it. It was hard to get good pictures of it’s shape. Thanks everyone!
  11. Hi everyone, I was looking online to see if definitive remains of Squalodon have been found in sediments from the Lee Creek mine in Aurora. What I found from older posts on the forum is that similar looking teeth have been found but belong to different toothed whale species. Also fossilguy.com shows several teeth which are labeled as Squalodon. I was interested in learning more about this as a Squalodon tooth is definitely on my bucket list and I plan on revisiting the spoil piles at Aurora within the next few years.
  12. Another Topsail Beach find

    I found this strange thing on Topsail Island, NC last week. Do any of you experts know what it may be? Thanks
  13. Found that tooth at the Topsail Beach in North Carolina while searching for shark teeth. I´m not really sure if it´s a Meg or something else. Hope someone can identify that tooth for me. Unfortunatly it´s not complete. Thanks for helping out!
  14. Mammal teeth GMR

    Hi all! I'm hoping for some insight. I found two mammal teeth at GMR today and I am not 100% sure what they are. I was thinking peccary or deer. Assistance is appreciated.
  15. GMR find

    Found this at GMR and have no clue what if anything it is. Seems like more than just a stone but maybe that’s it. Anyone have any guesses?
  16. Bone or Tooth or something else?

    Not sure whether this is a very beat up tooth, bone or something else? Found on a barrier island along the intercostal, NC towards Carolina Beach. Any clues?
  17. Not sure if this is a tooth? Looking for help. Thanks in advance!
  18. New to Forum

    Can anyone identify some of these? Thanks
  19. Pododesmus sp.

  20. Took a quick 1 1/2 hour trip yesterday afternoon to a Pliocene deposit on a river here in eastern North Carolina. I believe it is Duplin Formation. Was the first one there when the water got low enough, found some nice stuff. The Pliocene there sits on top of Eocene Castle Hayne limestone, so I got a few echinoids as a bonus. Two 2 inch plus hastalis, a 1 1/2 inch great white. A 1 3/4 inch croc tooth. A nice vert some big tigers, a broken whale tooth and Cacharhinus sp. Also a nice ray tooth file. Possibly Aetobatus. The two echinoids are Eurhodia holmesi.
  21. Thought I would add a few pics of a nice ric I found Friday. From an eastern North Carolina quarry. Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, Spring Garden Member. Whether you call it Otodus or Carcharocles auriculatus, they are always a pleasure to find. 2.58 inches
  22. Another Corolla NC Beach Find

    This is a new one to me and I would love some help identifying it. That is a deck nail next to it for size comparison. Thanks everyone!
  23. Found on the beach in Corolla NC

    I found this last weekend on the beach and am stumped! It is about 1.5 to 2 inches long. Ideas? Link to more pictures
  24. Had a quick walk down the beach the other day and it was actually pretty successful! Not many finds but they were all pretty sizeable! The largest one was half buried underneath the Johnny Mercer pier. It looked whole, and man I wish it was! Any ID ideas for the cusped tooth corner?
  25. A friend of mine (who is not a fossil collector) found this fossils at the Outer Banks of NC. He asked me what it was (which I told him) and why it had turned from its very black color when found in the sand to brown with a white-ish residue? He put it back into salt water (which I never heard of doing) and it is fading lighter brown. I have had similar trouble with my black fossils that I thought it was salt film and I rubbed olive oil on them and it cleaned it off and made them shiny. But . . . . I don't have any fossils this big and nice and I didn't want to give him bad advice. What is happening to the color and what can be done about it? Thanks for any advice! *This is the fossil below but it is wet and the film doesn't show up unless it is dry.
