  1. Shark tooth for ID

    We hunted our favorite Carolina beach recently and I found this shark tooth. We thought that it might be a Great White tooth, but after reading a recent post about the slight curve, thought we should ask before labeling it.
  2. A noob's first attempt

    Hi all, On a recent trip to Sharktooth Hill in Bakersfield, we had a heartbreaker when the shovel struck what turned out to be our biggest tooth, a 2"+ hastalis or planus, and busted the root. So I figured this was as good a place as any to try my hand at fixing it up. In hindsight maybe I should have tried first with something I cared a little less about. Here it is after gluing. I then purchased a "earth color kit" of Apoxie sculpt at did my best to match the color. It was easy to work with, but not so easy to get the color just right since I could only mix pink, natural, orange, and bronze. I think I did ok, not great. Then I had an idea for trying to get a better color match. I found a piece of root from another partial tooth from the same site. It was a close color match. So I ground up some of it into powder and applied it to the still-pliable Apoxy sculpt. Improvement! I'm pretty happy with the results although I know there's plenty of room for improvement. Any advice for future attempts will be happily accepted. Thanks! Scott
  3. Hi, I have received these fossils from Volgograd and I am unsure of their age or names, any help with them would be appreciated, Thank you, Misha.

  6. Hemi confirmation ID

    Hi. I believe this is hemi. My confidence on identifying is not the greatest. Getting there. Learning more every day. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks Mark
  7. Shark Tooth ID

    I found this shark tooth at Big Brook Preserve in Monmouth County New Jersey. I was thinking a lateral goblin shark tooth as it seemed to match up best with the middle picture on this website: http://www.fossilsofnj.com/shark/goblin.htm Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
  8. Calvert Cliffs Shark Tooth

    Hi all, I collected this tooth from Matoaka Beach in the Calvert Cliffs area of Maryland. It's clearly not a meg tooth but it's pretty large compared to most of what you find. There appear to be no serrations. I was thinking Carcharodon/Cosmopolitodus hastalis, the Narrow/Giant White Shark, but I'm just not sure.
  9. Shark tooth help

    I found this tooth a few years ago at caspersen beach while living in florida any help in identifying it would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Aquarium shark tooth identification

    I got this shark tooth necklace from the Odysea aquarium and was told it’s from the bottom of one of the aquariums, though the cashier didn’t know what kind of shark it’s from and I’d love to know!
  11. Pristine Peace River Tooth

    This tooth is an outlier in my collection because it’s the only really nice Peace River fossil I’ve ever found... but it’s a beauty. Pronounced bourlette and serrations all around, and that lovely tannin brown *chefs kiss*. As an Aurora guy, I’d call this Carcharhinus obscurus. Does that prognosis still hold for Florida? thank you all!
  12. Shark tooth identification?

    My uncle got me this shark tooth necklace from Hawaii but doesn’t know what kind of shark it’s from and I’d love to know!
  13. Shark tooth identification needed

    It's been a couple years since I last posted on this forum. Life got a bit more hectic due to health issues and a work promotion. Recently though I've finally had more time for fossils. I found a shark tooth today on the way home from work that I'm not familiar with. The tooth was found in a pile of limestone large gravel, sand, and chunks of chert that had been brought to the site from an unknown but local mine. I just happened across the pile unexpectedly and decided to stop even though it was drizzling out and I was hearing a bit of thunder. Other fossils I found in the same pile are shell castings, sponges, bryozoan, and a few echinoids. The location is the Ocala area of Marion County, Florida. I believe this part of the Ocala limestone and is eocene in age. While the root is a bit damaged and there's a chip in the blade the cusplets look to be in perfect condition. I'm leaning towards this tooth being a mackerel shark but it's not an exact match. Can anyone correctly identify it?
  14. Help ID possible shark tooth?

    Hi first timer here. Was with my 84 year old father looking around on Bonita Beach near Naples FL, and this was the first thing I picked up to try to show him what shape we were looking for. Wondering if this is indeed a shark tooth, and possibly what type? I have searched pictures but mostly find “ hook” shaped teeth of this small size. any ideas or suggestions are most welcome!
  15. 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.
  16. Shark Tooth

    Hi guys, just recently discovered this forum after years of collecting shark teeth from various beaches, mostly in the Carolinas. Most of them I’m pretty sure of what they are by just looking at charts I’ve seen but this one I’m not real sure, partly because it’s so warn and because I don’t have another one like it. Would love to hear your thoughts, thanks!
  17. Thick and curvy

    None of my other many Mako’s look like this... So hooked. Confirming that that’s what it is.
  18. Hammerhead shark tooth

    From the album Galveston Fossils

    Close-ups of the large hammerhead tooth found on Galveston Island, TX. It has very fine serrations. Probably zygaena. Scale bar = 1 cm. Found 8/10/19.
  19. 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.

    An interesting Otodus obliquus from Khouribga, Morocco, featuring only one cusplet, and one 'shoulder'.

  22. Help identifying this odd tooth please?

    Found at oceans view beach Norfolk VA.
  23. Think it's a tooth, but should it be?

    17 August 2019 Shark tooth? Lower Cretaceous - Walnut formation Western Bell County, Texas, USA I found this in the nearby park where I've found many of the normal central Texas fossils over the years (oxytropidocerous, salenia, parasmilia, heart urchins, gastropods, snails, etc.). My eyes tell me this thing looks a lot like a shark tooth. But my brain is trying to get me to disagree. Here's why I'm stumped: 1. While it makes sense that shark tooth fossils COULD be found in this area, along with all of the other sea life, we aren't known for turning up many teeth. In fact, I've not found any in this area yet and haven't really heard of others finding them around here either. 2. The shark teeth I have found in other areas, such as Post Oak Creek, have all looked . . . well, like fossilized shark teeth. This one looks like the chalky limestone in which it was found. Which has me wondering if it's a tooth or not. I welcome your input.
  24. Shark tooth ID

    Hello, My 7 yr old son has started to really get into fossil hunting and we found the following tooth at Bracklesham Bay on Sunday. I'm guessing it's a shark's tooth but does anyone know what breed? (Hoping I've done the photos right, bit of a flimsy tape measure) Front, back and side Thank you x
