  1. 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!
  2. Hi y'all, 2-25-17 went to 2 different bridges this day. The first bridge was very muddy and proved difficult to find anything so I cut to another favorite bridge where I thought I would have better luck. To my surprise I found gravel bars relitivly free of mud and foot prints. I hiked out pretty far things were much more productive. I met a fellow board member @zoocosmolina on my way back. Great meeting you. I'm sure we'll be meeting up again at some point.
  3. Hello once again! I've finally tried to identify the shark teeth that Ken (@digit) sent my way from the Peace River in Florida. Please let me know of any errors that I've made (I'm sure I've made many!), and I'd also love some help in identifying some of the more broken specimens that will appear in the final picture. Thanks so much! Monica PS - For labeling purposes, should I label all of these as being from the Pliocene since they are marine fossils from the Peace River, FL? As well, would it be possible to identify these little guys down to genus or even species? Thanks again! Photo #1: Sand tiger? Photo #2: Lemon? Photo #3: Tiger? Photo #4: Snaggletooth? Photo #5: Mako? Photo #6: Megalodon? Photo #7: Stingray teeth? Photo #8: Unknown - please help!
  4. So I tried something different today and followed a slough that feeds the Myakka River. Slough in FL usually means a creek that doesn't flow all year, and now that it is the dry season you can walk the bottom of dry river beds. I'm trying to put some of my limited understanding of river hydro and fossil movement into practice. Commonly you are told to search the curves, look under fallen trees, between rocks and search were the water flow becomes slower. I've only had luck with velocity transition areas (narrow to wide). Another surprise is the depth of fossil deposits in a slough, 8-9" under sand but I think this may make sense if you realize that during flood season the creek bed is furiously moving material but as it drys, more & more sediment layers cover the (desirable) fossil material. And the last surprise for me has been "caves" or "tunnels", in two separate locations there is a ground opening that obviously goes down stream but neither appeared to have an exit. I haven't been brave enough to try to explore these "caves" yet as they are pretty small and I imagine they may have some summer inhabitants that I'd rather not meet in a confined space (but the thoughts of a potential fossil bonanza is really tempting). No real treasure discovered, other than the un identified tooth (posted to the ID page) and a non fossilized rabbit jaw bone. Calvin
  5. 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:
  6. I'm not sure what type of tooth this is, I found it in Venice, Florida. I've been thinking that it is a mako shark or extinct mako shark tooth, not exactly sure though
  7. Took all of my best of the last three years and laid them out last night. Thought I would share.
  8. Cigar tube was just the right size for the mornings finds. Contains 112 teeth and pieces. Post Oak creek, three hours of finding and explaining to "others" how to find. Nice place to do the booty scoot, you sure find some tiny stuff. Screening gets the bigger stuff but allows the tiny stuff to filter through. Contains: Ptychodus whipplei, Cretolamna Appendiculata, Scapanorhynchus Texanus, Squalicorax Kaupi. It will wind up going as a gift. I'll get back with some other recent finds from around my part of local Texas. Jess B.
  9. I will start this out with three really cool patho teeth from the Lee Creek Mine in Aurora, North Carolina. These are all from the Miocene Pungo River Formation. First a small tooth, about 5mm wide 4mm long. I believe possibly Odontaspis Next a tiger shark, Galeocerdo sp., but I am leaning towards aduncus. and last an extremely pathological tooth that I believe is Carcharocles chubutensis, but I label it as carcharocles sp. Lets see what you have.
  10. Hello once again! Well, March Break has finally begun, so my daughter Viola and I decided to spend some time sorting through the Sharktooth Hill micromatrix that Ken (@digit) sent me as part of the "rolling auction" lot that I won last month. Here are some pictures of a few of the finds so far... Ray teeth? - different from the usual plates that I've seen before Cow shark (Notorynchus sp.)? Dogshark (Squalus sp.)? Marine mammal teeth? Any ideas? Cute little shark teeth in matrix - any ideas re: their identity? ??? ??? I'll post pictures of more items on another day, when my eyes have stopped burning Thanks in advance for your help! Monica
  11. 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.
  12. Had a great day on the river. Wind was freezing but good thing it was sunny. The tide was low and I came out with a ton of teeth. Found a good sized otodus tooth but too bad the shark had to eat. Still a great tooth though for the area. Thanks for looking!
  13. I took a long 8 - 10 mile hike at NSR. The weather was beautiful and wildlife abundant. I saw hogs, deer, beaver, hawks, ducks and geese among others. I picked up a nice variety of fossils. I really like the Xiphactinus jaw with replacement tooth showing. I sat down to take a break and found 4 shark teeth in one area. The little fossilized turtle scute is also cool.
  14. I had to attend a work event in Baltimore on Friday morning so I used that as an excuse to check out Brownies Beach in the afternoon. I arrived at noon and got dressed and quickly headed down to the beach...I was pretty shocked at how low the water was, the north winds really pushed it out. I set out to start exploring and realized two things: 1. I didn't need my waders and 2. I was way overdressed...despite the cool temperatures and some sporadic snow showers, I was hot! Anyway, I worked the beach as far as I could, finding some teeth and vertebras sporadically along the way, I found the Mako right before I turned around. I started back and ran into another tooth hunter, after chatting for a few minutes I found out it was WAHAMA90! The two of us hunted together the rest of the time there, it was quite enjoyable to have someone to chat with and to learn how he approaches the beach. True to form, he found a cow shark tooth there...I swear that he is the king of cow shark teeth! I really enjoyed the area and the company, I'll definitely be back! Couple of beach shots, extremely low tide! One of my first teeth. Mako as I found it. Total haul. The Mako was just shy of 2 inches. This vertebrae was pretty interesting to me, the first one that I have found that was flat in shape.
  15. Had a decent day at the cliffs. Found the usual stuff but I'm curious to see if anyone can ID what I think is some sort of whale/porpoise tooth? To sum up the finds, I think I found more jelly fish than shark teeth... hopefully the bay won't be loaded with them this summer! I also came upon a good sized catfish stuck in about 3 or 4 inches of water. I ended up carrying into deeper water so I hope it made it out ok. Thanks for any info on the tooth also. Conor
  16. Good afternoon, I frequent the beach at Bolivar Peninsula in Southeast Texas. I have found several shark's teeth but, I am curious to know your opinions about the pictures I am posting. It looks like a rock but, does have a discernible line, that would normally be between the tooth and the gum line. Obviously could be a coincidence. Curious as to your thoughts. All other teeth I have found look nothing like this, they are very easily identified. Thanks in advance for your help!
  17. I had the chance to hunt a few different places the past two days. Yesterday morning I went to Brownies Beach on the way to work. Then I headed to Virginia to pick up a $15 pair of chest waders from Craigslist. From there I headed to Purse State Park. I found a bunch of interesting things between the two spots. I averaged over 100 teeth per hour at Purse, and 95% of them were from the beach. I didn't have time to search the water for more than the quick walk back.
  18. Hi y'all, Here are the finds from 3 separate half day trips to Post Oak Creek during the first weekend of Feb and from last Saturday. One of those days was spent hunting a new to me part of the creek that seemed to have more trash and glass than fossils. That day I decided to make a move to a more productive part of the creek to collect some gravel that I had promised my nieces so they could do some fossil hunting at home. Also I collected some for myself. Last Saturday @Buffalo Bill Cody and I went hunting. It's was warmer and I noticed several bass swimming in the creek. I'll have to bring my fishing pole for the next outing. The week before last I went canoeing on the Llano River for 4 days where I had the pleasure of seeing some interesting fossils that I'll be posting below. Bare with me. I'm posting from an IPhone.
  19. I recently acquired some bulk samples of shark teeth from Morocco. Quite a lot of them appear to be Sand Tigers or Sand sharks (Odontaspididae). I'm working on collecting references to ID these teeth before assembling tooth sets. Since teeth from Morocco are so common, I thought this would be a useful resource for others. I'm just starting out and this reference is a good place to start: ARAMBOURG, C. (1952) Les vertébrés fossiles des gisements de phosphates (Maroc-Algérie-Tunisie). Notes et Mémoires du Service Géologique du Maroc, 92: 1–372, 62 fig., 44 pl Although it is in French and I believe a lot of the taxonomy has probably progressed from this time. Is there already a post on this topic? If not I would sure appreciate contributions of references for shark teeth for this locality. There may also be references from other localities that are relevant as they deal with species found in the Moroccan deposits. After some time we could organise references into something that makes sense taxonomically and if there is a demand for it maybe pin it. Thanks everyone!
  20. I made a quick trip to the Brownies Beach yesterday to catch the falling tide. It was a little colder than forecasted, and the waves were higher than normal. Everything was going fine until the cliffs came down. There was a loud roaring noise and I looked up just in time to see about 40 tons of the cliffs landing about 100 feet from me. It sent out a small tidal wave in my direction and I had dust in my mouth for a few more hours. Nothing will get the heart rate up quicker than the site of a landslide.
  21. First & foremost I don't think I will ever bad mouth a carefully built pvc sifter ever again. I use to think they were cheap & touristy looking, but having designed and assembling one over the past couple weeks (for a better 1/4" sifter better than my narrow & heavy metal basket sifter) it is something else. Beautiful day on the peace river yesterday (apart from someone burning something upwind from where I was sifting lol), saw about record numbers of canoers & fishers. Overall not too shabby for my back not being 100% & not having a yak yet. If anyone wants to hear about the somewhat lengthy trials & tribulations behind building this sifter ( & the minor modifications to come) just let me know & I can post a topic about it sometime P.s. don't drive down the gardner road to the boat ramp if your vehicle's suspension is very sensitive lol +Thread about my unknown bones:
  22. Headed out to Sulphur River with my girlfriend on Sunday. Checked out a new bridge that looked like it had many gravel bars on the satellite images. Upon getting to the bottom of the bridge my girlfriend promptly got stuck in the mud and ate sh*t. She's a trooper and we didn't let it get us down. After walking for awhile through deep sucking mud we made it to the promised gravel bars. Much of it was covered in mud, silt, and clay but there was still enough gravel for some good hunting. As we would walk through the mud our feet would pull up layers of mud that would have gravel underneath. What exactly has to happen for that mud to wash away and reveal the gravel underneath? I've read a lot on here about the spring rains? Maybe a sustained rise of the river? Here are our finds from the trip. I'll post some close ups of question finds. I'm planning on returning this Saturday for full day hunt. Would anybody like to meet up? @JarrodB @John S. @David E. ?
  23. No work, kids were in school, and warm temperatures predicted...time to head to the river again! My wife searched along the water's edge while I broke out the shark tooth sifter and dredged the first drop off in the water. It didn't take long before I found a nice Mako and feeling pretty good about it...then my wife yelled at me and motioned me over quickly, a beautiful Cow Shark tooth! We have found a few before but they always were broken, this was the first one that we found that was intact...definite trip maker! We both continued on finding the normal teeth for the area and decided to head home a few hours later, I hesitated and said I needed to find one more tooth before going...glad I did, I then found the second Mako! It's going to be hard for me to work all week without coming down with...*cough cough*...tooth fever! LOL! The total haul: Awesome Cow Shark! Makos I believe this is a Lemon, largest one I have found. A bone fragment that I found, thought it was pretty cool to see the hollow insides. Not sure what this is, My wife found it and thought it looked interesting. I think it is geologic but I told her I would throw it up here to see if anyone thought it was something:
