  1. Galeocerdo aduncus

    From the album Pleistocene and Miocene fossils

    A 1.6 cm long Galeocerdo aduncus from the area of Antwerp (Hoevenen).
  2. Carcharadon hastalis.

    From the album Pleistocene and Miocene fossils

    A 2.5 cm long Carcharadon hastalis. tooth from Antwerp/Hoevenen.
  3. Somniosus microcephalus

    From the album Pleistocene and Miocene fossils

    A 1 cm long very rare upper tooth of Somniosus microcephalus from a sand pit near Antwerp.
  4. Last week I was on holiday in the Netherlands/Belgium and I found many things! I mainly hunted at the beaches near Cadzand but I was also in the area of Antwerp. There the quality of the shark teeth is much better and you can find more and rarer ones At the sand pit the Miocene, Pliocene sand was washed up from the extension of Churchill dock and as you can see the area is very overgrown. You can still find there many shark teeth, bones and bivalves. I mainly concentrated on finding shark teeth. The best method to find something there is to dig a bit and then sieve the material. Here is a picture of the site: The total haul: The better ones: This was one of the best finds: Its about 5 cm long and I think that its an Isurus Hastalis (please correct me if I am wrong ) I like the colors on this one: (3.5 cm) A sweet little Galeocerdo Aduncus tooth: (1.2 cm) And last but not least this was probably my rarest find there: Small but nice Its an upper tooth of Somniosus microcephalus. I already have a lower tooth but thats the first upper for me! I am very happy with it Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed my little hunting trip! Of course any ID help is welcome!
  5. Found this beauty last weekend and wanted to share it with you guys ^^ posterior Alopias Grandis (Antwerp, Belgium)
  6. I already posted this hunting trip at the Zandmotor on my last vacation: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/85026-a-beautiful-day-at-the-zandmotor/ I also visited some other locations like a sand pit near Antwerp (Belgium). This was my fourth visit there and probably the most successful until now The Miocene, Pliocene sand was washed up from the extension of Churchill dock and as you can see the area is very overgrown. You can still find there many shark teeth, bones and bivalves. I mainly concentrated on finding shark teeth. Here is picture of the location: This is a picture of my last visit there last year, because my pictures from this visit are all too blurred But the situation didnt change much. I think that the best method to find something there is to dig a bit and sieve the material. Too bad that I destroyed my sieve more or at the beginnig of the day: After that I had to search on the surface but nevertheless I managed to find some cool teeth This was the find of the day: Could this be a tooth of Isurus Hastalis? I am not sure.... Its about 4.6 cm long I was super happy that I could find such a beautiful and big tooth !! Here is my total haul: And here are some more of the better finds: A 4 cm long Isurus Oxynchus:
  7. And another Antwerp bivalve: Veneridae?

    Hi all, Slightly incomplete, but I think that this shell is from the Veneroidea order, and possibly the Veneridae. I would like to narrow that down a little more though, hopefully to species. Is Callista chione perhaps a possibility? It's from Antwerp, Belgium. "Scaldisian" of the Pliocene (3 myo), Kattendijk Formatie (?). Thanks in advance, Max
  8. Antwerp Pycnodonte?

    Hi all, Found this shell in the Antwerp harbor. From the "Scaldisian" of the Pliocene, about 3 myo. I think Kattendijk Formation (can anyone confirm this?). I think it's some kind of shell within the Pycnodonte genus maybe? If so, which one? I am pretty sure that it's from the Ostreidae. Thanks in advance, Max
  9. Fossil bivalves with periostracum???

    Hi all, Found these two shells in Antwerp, Belgium. It was in a place with lots of sand, and the sea was rather far away. There are tons of Pliocene shells there to be found. I also found these two bivalves. What I find really weird is that the periostracum (the brown layer) is still preserved!? How could that be? Nearly all fossil shells lose it when fossilizing, yet these two seem to have kept it. What do you think is the answer to this mystery? Fossils, with the periostracum preserved, or modern (but how did they get here?)? (Or maybe this isn't a periostracum at all. But what is it then?) I think that the species are Mytilus edulis and Spisula subtruncata (although that's by far the biggest Spisula I have ever seen) (both present modern in the North Sea, and occur as fossils in Belgium). I'm greatly anticipating your thoughts on this! Max
  10. Small Antwerp bivalve

    Hi all, Found this small bivalve in Antwerp, Belgium. Most likely from the Pliocene. That hinge is weird, with that thing sticking out (almost like the Mya shells!). Anyone know what species this is? Thanks in advance! Max
  11. Hey everyone! I haven't posted on the forum for a looonggg time, but here I am again Winters in the Netherlands and Belgium suck, and hunting in the freezing cold isn't everything, so I was very happy that the weather is finally getting better, just in my vacation from university! Took the opportunity to go hunting right away, and we certainly didn't regret it (although we didn't expect to find much!) We went hunting twice and I hope we can go a few times more next week Our best find was probably a S. microcephalus, couldn't be happier when I saw it! It's our first of that species We also found a C. escheri, which is a first too (love the little cusplets on this tooth) We came across a N. cepedianus in our sifter too, and although we found some specimens of that species before, this is probably the most whole and perfect of them all! Will be continued in next post

    My smallers megalodon from Antwerp, Belgium
  14. I wanted to show you all my best personal finds so far. About two years ago I found a complete, beautiful megalodon on an active construction site in the Belgian Antwerp Area. Finds like this are extremely rare and seldom found in one piece.

    My best megalodon so far, found in Antwerp, Belgium.
  16. Symphyseal notorynchus teeth

    Found both these symphyseal notorynchus this year, they are quite certainly among my best finds from 2017. They’re from two different locations in the Antwerp area.
