  1. 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.
  2. Hello all! Well, I've done an initial search of the Sharktooth Hill matrix that @ynot sent me this week, and I'd like some help identifying some of the larger shark teeth - please and thank you! I think I'm right about the first three but I'm not so sure about the fourth since the root is worn down or covered by matrix, so it doesn't look exactly like the others - thoughts? I'm pretty sure about the one on the right but less sure about the one on the left - I did lump them together, though, since they both have a pretty obviously serrated shoulders. (By the way - I considered that the one on the left might be Sphyrna sp. (hammerhead), but I can't see a deep nutrient groove in the root.) Thoughts and opinions are much appreciated! I think this bunch of teeth just might be my favourite because of all the beautiful colours!!! Am I right about their identity, or should they be labelled as something else? None appear to have serrations, by the way. I doubt that I'm right about these ones since Isurus oxyrinchus (and I. retroflexus, the longfin mako) are not common for Sharktooth Hill, but I don't really know what else to suggest - please help! None of them have serrations, by the way. And finally (for now), a couple of tiny little teeth: Thanks so much for your help!!! Monica
  3. So I was cruising the bottom, checking boulders and my right hand hit something hard. It felt like a big bone chunk. Then my left hand swung around and felt the other side. Symmetrical. That's when I started getting interested. Then I felt the enamel. It just kept going and going down into the mud. At this point, I'm reciting the fossil hunter's littany, "Please be whole, please be whole, please be whole!" It was! 6 3/16" my first six-incher.
  4. These are the best of the bunch from a short trip right before high tide today.
  5. My wife and I both took a day off work to dig another hole in Bakersfield. Our best day yet. Felt like we did not spend more than 5 minutes without finding a tooth, big or small. Found over 200 teeth and hunted for a solid 6-7 hours. These are photos of some of the best ones we found. Front and Back: Large front seal tooth (I think), and other smaller seal teeth. Most likely from the same animal since I found them in very close proximity.
  6. Hello Everyone, I am aware this may be a dumb question but thought that a lot of Floridians would have the best input. I am a traveling therapist and have the opportunity to travel to Florida this fall on a 3-month assignment. I have never hunted Florida Fossils on the Peace River outside of the months of April and May and was just looking to clear the air on whether Fossil hunting is possible during the Fall-winter months (say September thru February). I am aware that this is still considered the dry season, but was hoping to get some pointed advice on this time of year. Again, I am most likely looking to hunt the Peace. Thanks all for any advice/ help you can give!
  7. I'm heading down to Charleston area for a couple days next week. Is there any areas that are easy to access that would be good to explore to look for some fossils. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks, Dwayne
  8. Man do I love this river! We were the first ones to the beach today and it was a good thing too, three hours later it was filled with folks showing up for the various Easter events at Stratford Hall. On of the first things I spied was the biggest shark vert that I had ever found, and I was feeling pretty stoked about that until my wife let a yell and held up one bigger. My wife did the racetrack pattern along the water line while I settled in for sifting, she ended up doing better than I did, though I did end up getting some cool finds as well. Total haul. Shark verts. Couple of fish verts and an epiphysis. Croc tooth, dolphin teeth, and a crab claw.
  9. 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.
  10. Can anyone help me out and let me know what I've got here? They came from Florida, New Port Richie area
  11. Spent the morning in a meeting trying to plan out the schedule from hell, afterwards I escaped to the river for the afternoon. Beautiful day to be at the river, the pollen is starting to fall like mad so a nice green carpet covered the water. Nothing huge today, but it was a very enjoyable day none-the-less. Total haul, some nice Hemis today: Small, extremely worn meg. Love finding Cow Shark teeth, hopefully I'll find a complete one this year. Also found another crab claw (top) and a fish vert (right).
  12. Decided to assemble some of the odds and ends I have that have yet to be displayed on my desk. Thought I would share. Shark teeth were not collected by me but were from foul weather days fossil hunting on ebay.
  13. Hello everyone, Trevor here. Today I went with my father to Ramanessin Brook in New Jersey. Yesterday there had been light but extended rainstorms and was hoping that the storms could expose so new formation or clean up some gravel bars. Much to my dismay the stream was almost completely flooded, with many portions of stream just slightly below my torso. All but one of the gravel bars were exposed in the first stretch of stream I explored. I did some sifting which was not very productive. I decided to try further upstream and found that there were a few more gravel bars. Along the way I met a funny group of students geologists from Stockton University near Atlantic City (if I remember correctly) practicing their hand at fossiling. If someone goes on Monday or even tomorrow they may find double what I came across. The streams need a little bit of time to subside and then many finds will be exposed. I found some odd bones and was wondering if someone could identify them. The first I believe is a vert and the second I have no clue. My questions: Are they fossilized? Are they pleistocene if fossilized? First Unidentified Bone:
  14. I made an eBay purchase and discovered loose loose items in with it. Trying to identify them. Don't know anything about their origin but am trying to get more info from the seller. Any help would be appreciated.
  15. Went out to the North Sulphur River on Friday and on Sunday. Met up with @David E. on Friday at Sunrise. After a pretty good rise in the river we were a little surprised to see it didn't really seem to make the difference we were hoping for. But I will say David found some stuff that blew my mind. I'll let him reveal his amazing discoverys. I did find a great bony fish vert, several tumbled Mos vert, and a really nice squali tooth. The second day I returned with my girlfriend where I found more Mos verts and my girlfriend found a killer shark vert. Below is the combined 2 days...
  16. It may be a weird request...........but a few weeks ago I found a rather nice shark tooth ,water was high, in a stream during a snow storm with 6 inches snow on the ground and very cold (didn't think i would find anything) and on this day my father had passed away,although fairly new to fossil hunting I always shared my journies with him and I'm trying to find somewhere I can send it to have gold plated in his memory as I cant find any info local.........does anyone know? thanks

    Fossil Shark Teeth in situ Summerville, South Carolina
  18. Will be traveling from FL to SF Bay Area in April. Have the Weekend of April 22/23 free. Would like to hunt Shark Tooth Hill (or area) with fellow TFF'ers if possible. Most interested in shark teeth that aren't BLACK since I normally hunt the Peace River & other areas of SW FL. Will need some help as I don't know anything about hunting on dry land without water. Thanks in advance! Calvin
  19. Hey All! Had a lazy day today so finally got some time to post my Peace River canoeing/fossil trip I went on end of Feb. I went 4 days and 3 nights on the Peace River canoeing, camping, and fossil hunting. We dropped in Wauchula and ended in Arcadia. We had a blast and found some good stuff along the way. This is my 4th year going down there and my first trip where I found my biggest and best condition meg! My buddy had never been fossil hunting (except once to Mazon Creek, pit 11 with me) and he found his first small meg on the river. We saw a lot of wildlife, paddled a lot of water, and shoveled a lot of river bottom. Here's my material from the trip. Enjoy! Armadillo band/scutes, glyptodont scute and tail scute (one of my favorites!), whale bulla, tortoise spur, random bone, and tusk material Jaw (recent deer??), alligator teeth, snake vert, sloth teeth pieces, gator osteoderm (a favorite), and small random bones Peccary tusk??, capybara tooth piece, reconstructed deer antler, horse teeth, piece of petrified wood mammoth tooth pieces (I think same tooth), mastodon enamel pieces, shell (id?) turtle neural pieces, soft shell turtle pieces, gar scale, ray teeth/plate pieces, ray barbs turtle turtle turtle! These are my unknowns glass bottle (any ideas w age on this one???), bone piece? skull bone??, very worn vert of what?
  20. 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!
  21. After deciding I wouldn't head to the Sulphur River again till it had some major rain I decided on Saturday night that I had nothing better to do and went out Sunday morning anyway. I went to a favorite spot and after heading some distance I was happy to see few footprints and very little mud. Almost immediately I discovered the best mosasaur vert I've ever found! This thing looks like it came out of the monsters neck yesterday. I was out there only about 4 hours and came away with a pretty good haul. The Sulphur always seems to produce.
  22. Found this in an area where we find a lot of shark teeth. It's a lot heavier than other objects it size. Very smooth to the touch. I have no idea what it is if you can help. Thanks
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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
