  1. Mecca Quarry Shale finds

    I had a great time hunting with ESCONI at the Starved Rock Clay Pit. It exposes the Pennsylvanian aged Francis Creek Shale and Mecca Quarry Shale. There were tons of concretions lying around, but we were told they are usually empty and rarely split well, so I didn't bother. I was really there for the black shale anyways. I found a bunch of bits which may prove to be more interesting after prep, but here are the more exposed finds of the day. I am not familiar with this fauna, so I was hoping to get help with IDs. #1) I found a few similar specimens. Best guess is coprolite. #2) Not sure if this is a fossil. Maybe coprolite or an arthropod carpace. Or just a mineral stain.
  2. Sharks teeth (Ukraine) ?

    Hello! Help with identification, please. Western Ukraine. Neogene/Cretaceus. Thanks
  3. Hello - new member here. I found this great white tooth on Cape Cod recently and it was identified as a White Shark tooth by a local natural history curator, but they didn't think it was fossilized. Any ideas? To me it looked very similar to fossilized teeth I looked up online. When I first pulled it out of the water it was a little more grey/blue/black but once it dried it went this tan/brown color. We have an explosion of Great Whites here recently, but is this fossilized?
  4. Northeast Texas Hunt!

    Fun hunt yesterday. I found some huge broken sawfish teeth, shark teeth, enchodus jaw and teeth, mosasaur verts, big heart clam which I've never found in the Sulphur river area and a killer petrified wood Gary point. It got hot around 2PM so I got out early.
  5. Germany shark teeth

    What's shark tooths species are these? they are from Germany, location is at Espenhain and formation is Boehlen, Phosphorite horizon.
  6. Pointed oval teeth from Big Brook NJ

    I find non-Crow Shark teeth from Big Brook quite hard to ID, and this is a grouping that I just can't figure out. In the cross-section they are sort of like an oval, with a pointed edge at either end - whereas Goblin Sharks teeth seem to have a half-moon cross section. Not stubby enough for a Mosasaur, but also not enamelled and curving like the Goblin Shark. They are between 7-15mm long, and up to 4mm wide. Sorry for the mediocre photography.
  7. Is anybody interested in a straight up swap, some of your matrix for some of mine? Mine's from Abbey Wood, Kent, England. Eocene shark beds, so 54MYA shark, Ray, pike, occasional turtle, croc and very rarely (although I’ve found a few pieces) mammal. It’s been wet sieved, dried out, and totally unsearched! I'm not interested in any money crossing hands, just matrix for matrix. Apparently my photos are too large to be uploaded but can email photos of my finds and the matrix. Let me know if you’re interested
  8. Hey everyone, Recently took a trip with a buddy of mine down to South Carolina to search for megalodon teeth. We found many small teeth along with some decent sized ones. These were found in the general area between Charleston and Summerville. The ruler is imperial. Big thanks to everyone who offers their guesses Pictured are three of my biggest from the whole trip. What are they?
  9. Sharks tooth (Ukraine)

    Hello! Help please with ID. This tooth I think from Neogene, but coukd be also from Cretaceus. Thanks!
  10. Shark teeth ID

    These two shark teeth were found on Wrightsville Beach, NC Please help with identification.
  11. Chubutensis or Angustiden

    So I have posted a picture of this tooth before but I was recently showing it to a buddy and he said it looked like a chub but the cusps make me think angustidens. I want to know what you all think. I found this in an area that the formation is exposed in spots. The clay is a thick white clay speckled with tiny pebbles and other fossils. my geological maps that i used to find the location say that it is of Miocene age in the hawthorn group. However I am starting to think that there might be older clays exposed in the area. Please help me figure out what kind of tooth I have here, thank you.
  12. Shark teeth

    Hi all! Thank you for your patience with a first time poster! I was recently searching for fossils in Florida, and came across these two specimens. Actually, I was searching for fossils at an estate sale in Florida, so no glory to these finds lol. I know nothing of their origins, although there was enough material that seemed local to make me think Florida, or at lease SE U.S. They are approximately 2" in length, and have an odd second cusp present. Anyone want to take a stab at the sort of shark? Thank you in advance for sharing your expertise.
  13. I hope everyone is enjoying their summers! I have these megalodon teeth up for trade and more, all completely natural. The approximate measurements can be seen on the ruler and I can take more exact measurements upon request. Some over 5" and 2 of them are just barely under 6". They are all from the southeast coast of the United States. Some from north and some from South Carolina. IN RETURN: I'm very interested in high quality shark teeth as well as trilobites, crabs, lobsters, fish, shrimp, cannonball ammonite nodules, keichesourus, mammal teeth, and anything else cool you may have. For shark teeth open to all kinds but especially: isurus desori teeth, ginsu shark teeth, large Cretaceous or eocene teeth, cool khazakstani teeth, high quality large hastilis, Large unrepaired otodus obliqous teeth.
  14. More Shark Week!

    I'm still celebrating shark week. Here's some cool mosasaur bones I found with shark scavenging marks.
  15. Help identifying shark tooth

    Found in Gainsville, FL
  16. Hi. Found these teeth today in Dorset but the transportation box split open and mixed with the hammers! There are two teeth but are jumbled up. Any suggestions? I am going to try to superglue them together again but I’m not sure which belongs to which and may be missing pieces. Thanks in advance. I think they are both hybodontidiform shark.
  17. Here's a few of my favorite shark finds from Northeast Texas creeks and rivers.
  18. Tooth fairies wanted to help

    So my son found this tooth on Galveston beach.(Texas) Just seeing if any of yall can help tell him what it came from.
  19. Hello All, Found this forum while trying to locate resources to ID these two teeth that were found in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina last week. I had great luck last week and found numerous teeth, including several nice great white teeth and a cow shark tooth. Both of the teeth in question here were found on the beach: one in a shell pile, and the other in the surf zone. I have tried to provide multiple picture angles, but using my phone the image quality is not the greatest. Hopefully, at least a few of the pictures are good enough to provide enough clues to what these teeth are from. Looks like I do not have room to post the additional photos of the teeth next to a size scale. I took many photos but deleted most because of very poor image quality. Here are the teeth measurements: Tooth 1 (blue/serrated): 2.2cm long by 2cm wide (at the root) Tooth 2 (dark blown/black color, worn): 1.5cm long by 1.4 cm wide Happy to answer any questions about these teeth. Just to elaborate a bit more if the images don't show it enough: Tooth 1 has significant curvature of the top of the root and even some curvature on the backside of the root (i.e. the tooth does not sit flat). This is primarily why I didn't think this was a great white tooth. However, serrations are present on the tooth and can be seen in the pictures. Tooth 2 is fairly worn and almost black in color. At least one side of the tooth near root was worn away/destroyed before I found it. Although small, this tooth has some weight to it. Hope this information is helpful. Thank you to any all all responses for taking the time to help solve my mystery! Tony
  20. Help with shark tooth

    Thinking is may be a great white but have no idea. Found it a bunch of years ago and a buddy and I were debating what it actually is was hoping someone could help
  21. Went fossil hunting in a creek near Gainsville, Florida and found a ton of teeth but this one stands out to me from the lemons and bull sharks that make up the majority of our finds. Noticed it has a notch at the top was wondering if it could be a hammerhead?
  22. Found in Big Brook NJ - Any idea of what it could be?
  23. Shark Week on the Discovery Channel starts tonight and one of the shows is about C. megalodon. It's on at 8pm Eastern and Pacific time.
  24. Sharks tooth (Ukraine) Neogene.

    Hello! Help please with identification if its possible. Width of square - 5 mm. Thanks!
  25. Tooth id

    Found this tooth fragment in Possum creek in Gainesville Florida. You can see serrations on both sides which almost makes me think Meg frag, but it seems way too narrow to possibly be. Though the thickness also makes me think Meg. Any ideas? Btw, sorry for terrible quality photos. Took em with my ipod.
