  1. Strange looking tooth?

    I found this odd looking tooth while walking on the beach in Corolla, NC. I’ve researched a bit online but can’t find examples of teeth that look like this. Any help would be appreciated!
  2. One of my first exciting finds was a piece that looked like a tooth back in March. Turned out to likely be just a cool shaped rock. Fast forward 3 months and I finally found this today, which I believe is an actual tooth. But I'm no expert, is my identification correct?
  3. Chippokes State Park VA

    Not a very exciting trip, but we went out to Chippokes Plantation State Park in Surry, VA for Father’s Day to have a walk on the beach and relax, and I found a nice coral, a red mako tooth, some other small teeth, and a bonito nose.
  4. Sm Shark Teeth

    I am sifting with a 1/4 sieve in a layer of what I think is original ocean bottom (Florida). I found 2 small teeth that I thought were Mako and Sandtiger, but now I think neither is correct. The darker tooth without a pronounced nutrient grove is C. hastalis found years ago in the Peace River. Additional photos of Shark tooth #1 Additional photo of Shark tooth #2
  5. Found this while searching for shark teeth near Jacksonville FL. I thought maybe a stingray? Any ideas? Sorry low quality pictures. The edges are strange but cant seem to get the camera to focus.
  6. Symphyseal

    Picked this up yesterday. It is easy to get excited on a small package. Looks like G. aduncus symphyseal but is much wider than the ones I see on a google search.
  7. Been hunting teeth for some time now and I ran across these two things on my last trip that has me scratching my head. Any help in identifying would be appreciated! The items are #1 and #2. The last pic is of all the teeth me and the family dug. Thanks
  8. Hello everyone! After a busy day at work on Friday i decided to take myself down to the local beach for a couple of hours of peaceful, stress-free shark tooth searching. The weather has been horrendous for the past week in this part of the UK with strong winds and waves smashing up the coastline. For those who are unsure of the location, it is a red crag formation located on top of London clay. As i got to the steps leading to the beach i could see that the cliffs had taken a hammering, there were falls everywhere, in some places as much as 2 metres had come down. Also on the beach the shingle had all been sucked out to see, leaving just sand and the underlying London clay which is a perfect time/conditions for finding fossils. I was getting teeth pretty much as soon as i got onto the beach, with most located at the base of the cliff sitting on the London clay. Cosmopolitodus hastalis/Carcharodon hastalis and Otodus obliquus making up the majority of the finds. Soon i also picked up a crab or lobster leg which is a first for this location. After spending a couple of hours there and with the worst back pain after being bent in half looking down i headed off home with the intention of getting up early and getting to the beach first thing. Back at the beach for 7am Saturday morning hoping i would be there before anyone else, sure enough no other mad souls were around and i had the beach to myself again. Didn't find as many as the previous evening with the reason that overnight it hadn't been as rough as i had hoped it would be and the high tide mark barely made it to the base of the cliffs. Gosh darn it, i thought to myself. Never mind i will look over the same place as yesterday to see if i had missed any. Found a few Cosmopolitodus hastalis/Carcharodon hastalis again and then i spotted it. What looked to be a very black pebble sitting on its own on the sand. Strange i thought to myself. Picked it up, turned it over and my eyes widened. My first proper meg! And only 6cm long so by no means a biggie and very well worn but i didn't care! I spent another hour or so on the beach but nothing else major turned up. I am going to try again tonight as the conditions at the beach can change with a single tide so need to make the most of the good conditions whilst i can....If anyone can give me alternative or additional identifications or would like any more photos please ask. Thanks for reading everyone!
  9. Ernst quarry shark teeth

    I have a couple other teeth in question. Any help is appreciated. Is this one a tiger shark? There are serrations.
  10. Shark tooth ID

    This tooth was part of a collection of very worn shark teeth that I believe were found at Post Oak Creek, TX (Cretaceous). It's almost exactly 1.5 cm in length. My thought was paraisurus.
  11. Sharktooth hill teeth

    I went to the Ernst Quarry a few weeks back and found a lot of teeth. I've never gone shark tooth collecting, so this was a very new experience that I really enjoyed. However as I know next to nothing about shark tooth identification, I have several teeth that are puzzling me. Ive tried using the elasmo site and the handout I was given at the quarry, but these don't match up. Apologies for the photos, my phone isn't too keen on very small items. If they are not good enough I can try to take a couple more. No serrations on either of these 2 teeth as far as I can tell.
  12. The past month on the river has produced a wide variety of finds. I have been very lucky as a rookie fossil hunter. It all started with the idea of finding some shark teeth. Now I can't wait to be surprised by the next thing the river will give up. The area I have been concentrating on has been producing mammoth tooth fragments on almost every visit. Today topped it off with what I think is a mammoth spit tooth. I will post better pictures tomorrow in the ID section. My resident photographer was not available tonight to provide her usual expert photos. I was so excited by the find I had to post a shot I took just after getting back to the launch site.
  13. Hi folks, we bought a sample of microfossils originated from Waurika, Oklahoma. It was really fun to search through the little pile and try to ID the pieces. The result was a short video We decided to share it hoping for comments and more interesting info from the knowledgeable audience of this forum. What's really cool about microfossils is the amount of details and often stunning preservation of tiny pieces. Does anybody know a microfossil locality in Central California?
  14. Hi folks, On our last cross country trip we stopped at a fossil site I had heard of to look for fossils. It is near Malvern, Arkansas and I am sure it is Clayton formation (Paleocene) based on a publication which specifically describes the site. It was a horrible day for collecting so we grabbed some samples and are now slowly taking the matrix apart at home. We are finding a lot of tiny stuff and a few sharks teeth which may be identifiable. Does anyone know what the shark fauna looks like from that site. I haven't found any good references for the Clayton specifically and the publication I do have is a faunal survey which compares rough numbers in different groups and deals very little with the specific species themselves. Thanks for any help you can offer. Kate
  15. Tiger Shark Tooth Australia

    G'day everyone! I was wondering if anyone could give me a second opinion on this shark tooth. It was collected from the Batesford Limestone, Early Miocene in Age (23 - 15 million years). Fossils that come from this locality include shark teeth, fish teeth, cetacean fossils, avian and terrestial mammal fossils and marine invertebrates. I believe it could be Galeocerdo aduncus however I am not that confident as I don't collect shark teeth much and am not familiar with shark teeth from this locality. Thanks, Dan
  16. Galeocerdo sp.

    From the album Sharks

    A pair of small tiger shark teeth. notice the complex serrations. (serrations on serrations!)
  17. Carcharias taurus

    From the album Sharks

    Fossilized sand tiger shark teeth. This species is the same one living today; you often see them in aquariums.
  18. Squalicorax kaupi

    From the album Sharks

    Two nice S. kaupi teeth.
  19. Sphyrna sp.

    From the album Sharks

    Two hammerhead shark teeth. Right one is S. zygaena, I'm not certain about the left one.
  20. Carcharocles megalodon

    From the album Sharks

    Two small megalodon teeth from N. Carolina.
  21. Ancient Great White Shark

    From the album Sharks

    Three fossilized great white shark teeth with nice coloration. Unfortunately, roots are missing on all of them.
  22. Petrified wood or something else?

    Found this in the Peace River. In the pictures it looks like a wet piece of wood. It’s definitely fossilized. I’m thinking petrified wood but the color doesn’t look like any prices I’ve seen before? Also, what type of sharks are the last two teeth. I think one of them might be a small meg. If it is, it’s my first meg!!!!
  23. Pennsylvanian fish teeth/jaw?

    I posted this find in my trip report thread http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/95184-51319-oglesby-il-roadcut-pennsylvanian-shark-bits-brachiopods-and-more/ but I thought I would put it here too to get some more eyes on it. This piece is from the Pennsylvanian LaSalle Limestone member of the Bond Formation, collected on 5/13 and prepped some over the weekend. At first I thought it was the root of a shark tooth, but as I prepped and revealed the multiple "teeth" on top and the ratio of root to teeth it did not match up. That makes me think it is possibly a part of a jaw with teeth in it, but I have never found anything like that at this site before, nor have I seen any reported from this formation. Any ideas? The scale below is in CM.
  24. Hello, Here are some more of our findings from our 2 brief trips to Purse Park. I think the shark teeth are Odontaspis winkleri but am not sure. I have no idea on the small cream tooth other than its probably from a fish . . . (to me it looks surprisingly rodentlike though)?? And the hollow black bit which I initially took to be a casting from an invert burrow I figured can't be since it is hollow. Anybody have any ideas?? Thanks, Kate
