  1. A bone.....but from what....

    Hi all, Today I found this but I can't figure out what it's from. It doesn't look like a vertebra from any angle to my eye. It seems to have a point of articulation. From a river in Eastern NC.
  2. Last week, we had the opportunity to visit the eastern parts of North Carolina guided by a local resident (my brother!!). A great time was had by all. Scenery is spectacular!!!!. We not only relaxed on the beach but we went shelling and fished. Wildlife was everywhere. From wild horses on the barrier islands to the birds. The dolphins were my favorite. I was hoping that the hurricane which recently brought large waves to the beach, may have brought in some fossils too. Such was not the case. So our group of one fossil hunter (me) and three novices that were neutral on looking for fossils set off to an inland site that I had researched prior to a earlier visit last year. When I was at this site previously, I came up with a goose egg, and it was NOT a fossil. So my expectations were pretty low. The site was along the Neuse River as seen in this picture. Most of our finds were in amongst the reeds and tree stumps. I think the beach area had been picked clean by other visitors.
  3. Found Fossil

    Hi. I am trying to determine what animal this fossil came from. Found on the beach in the Outer Banks, NC. Thanks for any help!!
  4. Need help identifying tooth

    Hi! I was walking along the beach on Topsail Island in North Carolina searching for sharks teeth after a storm when I found what appears to be a tooth. The strange part is that it closely resembles human teeth. I can’t seem to find anything like it in my books or online and I am trying to figure out what species it could possibly be. It’s about 1 millimeter long, if the ruler isn’t very clear in the photo.
  5. I have been researching why my specimens of H.serra teeth from Topsail Island and Lee Creek look different. Apparently, H.serra from the early Oligocene are smaller, less robust, and have finer serrations compared to later, Miocene H.serra teeth. Is my conclusion accurate? The H.serra from Topsail Island are supposedly from the River Bend Formation. There is conflicting information on the internet about the age of this formation. Some sources say "early" or "lower" Oligocene, some say "middle-late" Oligocene. Which is correct? If "early" is correct, when was it formed? Closer to 33 mya or more recent? For H.serra found in North Carolina, what is the range in age? Oligocene-Miocene /33.9-5.3 mya? Is it possible to narrow down that range more accurately?
  6. North Carolina Tooth ID

    My dad's friend found this in North Carolina recently, and he needs some help identifying it. I'm pretty sure it's not a Meg, but it might be a Dusky or a Mako.
  7. ID Lee Creek shark tooth

    My best guess is G.aduncus. I realize most of the serrations are broken off, but the uninterrupted curvature of the main part of the tooth does not match my other examples of G.aduncus or G.cuvier.
  8. ID symphyseal (? ) tooth

    I overlooked this one a few times because it is so small. Appears to be a symphyseal tooth. Lee Creek spoils pile find. Any guesses as to species?
  9. Fossil ID near Durham, NC

    This is the first time I've tried to go looking for fossils and found this while breaking apart some sedimentary rocks. I don't know if I'm seeing the cross section of something. The lighter grey, white area really stood out against the normal red yellow white of the surrounding stone. Located near the edge of a creek bed. According to the usgs the area is Felsic Metavolcanic Rock and in the period of Cambrian/Late Proterozoic.
  10. Shark tooth?

    What is this?

  13. Lee Creek ID and pathological?

    Please ID this tooth found in a Lee Creek spoils pile and is it pathological?
  14. Which Lee Creek Carcharocles Sp.?

    I found these in a Lee Creek spoils pile. Which ID is correct? (juvenile?) C. megalodon on the left, C. chubutensis on the right? Both C. chubutensis?
  15. Lee Creek A. superciliosus?

    Can anyone confirm that this tooth is A. superciliosus? Found in Lee Creek spoils pile, North Carolina
  16. Isurus Sp.?

    Is this tooth one of the Isurus species? Found on Topsail Island, North Carolina.
  17. Shark teeth ID

    These two shark teeth were found on Wrightsville Beach, NC Please help with identification.
  18. Hi there! I went fossil hunting today at GMR and found all these awesome bones! I am most interested in what the top row, first 3 on left could be. They were found right next to each other. all the other bones were found in a close distance (within 10 feet) of the first 3. Thank you for any and all help! if anyone has any input on any other bones in the first pic, I would appreciate that as well
  19. I got to do my first Meg Ledge trip yesterday. The weather was nasty on the “offshore” ledge, so we hit the “inshore” one. So ~25 miles out instead of ~40. All three dives were at ~100’. The attached pictures contain the haul from my final dive of the day. Almost got a 6” tooth. I’m curious to see how they look after they’ve been cleaned up.
  20. Hello! I’m a new member from NC. I’m a fossil novice but look forward to learning! These fossils were found in shell piles at the high tide line at Ocean Isle Beach - a small island on the southern coastline of North Carolina. I think these are teeth but I can’t find any similar teeth online. Any help with identification is greatly appreciated!
  21. 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!
  22. Please help!

    Found this on the beach in NC. Can someone please help me identify? I’m at a loss! Thanks!
  23. I have a megalodon tooth. The seller said it was recovered by a diver in N. Carolina "from the Yorktown or Hawthorne formation." It has a nice spot of coral on it. Is there any way to know if the coral is modern or a fossil also?
  24. Carcharocles (Otodus) auriculatus 04

    From the album Sharks and their prey ....

    Carcharocles (Otodus) auriculatus North Carolina, Castle Hayne fm.

  25. Just trying to find out whether or not this is a shark tooth or part of a shell. I am on vacation at Ocean Isle Beach North Carolina. I found this earlier today around 12:30 p.m. I was near the tide line. It doesn’t look to be very pointy on top but the bottom looks different than a broken shell part. The coloring looks different, blackish grey with some white on it. Any help would be great. I’m a newbie here. Thanks for helping me out.
