  3. EOS small treasures

    Beautiful day Friday. Sun was shining. Besides sprinkles, rain held off until late afternoon. I am finding interesting fossils. Let me try 2. I have seen similar previously, but never identified. Maybe others have, Then a tooth: Have there been occurrences of Aulophyster like small teeth on the east coast of the US? @Boesse Like I implied, interesting fossils.
  4. Purse State Park Trip

    Took a trip to purse state park today, got there around 9:30 and the lot was already pretty full. Made our way down the beach to the spots we like to search and my wife found the biggest croc tooth we have found, at least double the size of any of the other ones we have found. A little bit later walking along the low tide shoreline I did a double take and saw the big Otodus tooth pictured. We were able to find a lot of other nice size otodus and sand tiger teeth during our time there. On our way back walking the beach entrance and Wades Bay were packed with at least 100 people and their boats. Overall a great day for hunting!

  16. Nanjemoy Trip 5/7/20

    First official post! Drove to Nanjemoy with my wife to shark tooth hunt for the day. Wewere the only people there when we arrived, usually it can be pretty packed with cars. Usually we find a lot of smaller teeth and a somewhat longer sand tigers. We found two of the otodus up at the high tide line within 15 minutes of each other after walking down the beach and were both really shocked and excited. Decided to stop and eat lunch and that’s when I found the biggest and by far the biggest we have ever found and in such great condition. Only the tip of the tooth was sticking out when I spotted it.
  17. fish or reptilian?

    Hi to everyone again!, I have found these teeth in coastal sediments Pliocene in age. Do they look like fish teeth or reptilian? Can't identify any of these four. Thanks!
  18. New Pliocene bone

    Hi to everyone!, I found this bone in pliocene marine sediments in Spain, but I'm unable to identify it. Any guesses? Thanks!
  19. 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
  20. Whale tooth, bird bone

    I recently found a broken canine (split in two) that made me think. The site usually produces a fair amount of Pliocene fossils. Here it is. The length of the tooth is 2.5 inches of which 1.5 inches is enamel. I know a lot about Florida whale teeth and I have frequently said that horizontal banding rings are a "tell" for whale. This one has such horizontal rings. However it has differences from the "normal" whale teeth I find: 1) The enamel is on the outside of the tooth and longer than a tooth this size should have; 2) Most Florida whale teeth have slightly rounded rather than sharp tips. Here are some more common Florida whale shapes: Maybe it is Orycterocetus or or even a large alligator tooth. Comments appreciated. At the same location, I also found a bird bone and wondered if it had a Pliocene age. Maybe @Auspex can assist, identifying the bone and candidates Jack.
  21. This fossil was found on a Gold Coast beach in 2019. I'm thinking Pliocene as it's like most of my beach fossil finds. It's a curiosity as it has some crystals inside the carapace. Any thoughts on this? Thankyou!

  23. Turbo floridensis

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Trocida Family Turbinidae Turbo floridensis Olsson & Harbinson, 1953 Statigraphy: Golden Gate Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Spoil, Collier County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Similar in appearance to recent Turbo castanea which has alternating rows of major and minor noded spiral cords, T. floridensis has noded cords of equal strength. Its operculum is similar in appearance to that of T. dominicensis however that of T. floridensis has a flattened shelf along the rim that does not show well on the photo.
  24. Turbo cf. dominicensis

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Trocida Family Turbinidae Turbo cf. dominicensis Gabb, 1873 Statigraphy: Golden Gate Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: Spoil, Collier County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: The beaded appearance of the spiral chords on this partial shell is similar although not as strongly expressed as in Woodring 1928 drawing of T. dominicensis from Bowden, Jamaica. The operculum is domed and beaded.
  25. Turbo sp.

    From the album Gastropods of the Tamiami Formation

    Order Trocida Family Turbinidae Turbo sp. Statigraphy: Pinecrest Sand Member of the Tamiami Formation Location: SMR Phase 10 Pit, Sarasota County, Florida USA. Status: Extinct Notes: Originally I had identified this species as Turbo dominicensis based upon images in popular publications and dealer sites, however it does not bear any resemblance to that species as shown in Woodring"s 1928 figure in his manuscript on the Fossil Mollusks of Bowden Jamaica. The pictured species has thin, non-noded spiral cords and compares well with undescribed specimens in the Florida Museum of Natural History UF31535.
