  1. My first time making the trip into the Martin Marietta quarry at Belgrade this last Friday. It felt like an oven in there with temperatures in the high 80's and having to wear safety gear. Happy that there had been plenty of rain to wash the soil in the week leading up to the collecting day. The quarry is mainly looking across all the spoil piles to try to spot fossils. My buddy found a nice partial C. angustiden tooth that would of been over 3 inches. I also found a 2.2 inch GW that was pretty worn. Pictures show some of my better finds from the day. I found many more with damage to a root lobe. Would be good to see what others found. The largest Sand Tiger tooth in the top left is 1.82 inches. Grateful for IDs on the vert, croc tooth? sawfish barb? and others (other than the Tiger and Hemi's).
  2. What could I expect to find in the Belgrade Quarry in NC?
  3. Hi all! The Mace Brown Museum of Natural History will have a table in the community center this saturday at the Aurora Fossil Festival. I'm currently trying to write up the marine mammal assemblage from Belgrade Quarry, which appears to be transitional between the upper Oligocene Chandler Bridge Formation here in Charleston and the late early Miocene assemblage from the Pungo River Formation in the Lee Creek Mine. Bring your Belgrade marine mammal specimens to our table, I'd like to see them! Several members of this group and the exceedingly generous North Carolina Fossil Club have already donated a bunch of great specimens including earbones and teeth. Also, I just realized I accidentally left @sixgill pete off of this flyer - thanks to him as well!
  4. Last Friday I went with a group of people to a local North Carolina Oligocene Quarry. This quarry contains exposures of the late Oligocene Belgrade Formation; Pollocksville and Haywood Creek members along with the early Oligocene river Bend Formation. These are all in situ pictures. The drive in .... These piles are mostly Pollocksville member, but there is some Haywood Creek member of the Belgrade mixed in. There is also a pebble lag that has Pleistocene and Pliocene fossils. First find of the day was this nice little croc tooth, Thecachampsa sp. A little later I found this nice cowshark tooth, Notorhynchus cf. primigenius and this nice little croc vert .....
  5. Psammechinus carolinensis

    These little echinoids, referred to locally sometimes as "cheerios" because they average about the same size as one. They are a relatively common find in the basal sands of the early Oligocene River Bend Formation, often in association with Rebecapecten trentensis. This specimen is one of my smaller ones; 6.1 mm in diameter and is cleaner than most. Many of these have a calcite coating with black and white sand granules on them. In the last photo; the group shot, it is the one on the upper left. The smallest in the case.

  6. Help with an id on this small bone found in the Belgrade Quarry in North Carolina. It is small, less than 19mm. Probably Oligocene, but not sure.
  7. Second Fossil Hunt in NC

    Yesterday I had a blast at my first organized fossil hunt in Maysville, NC. I am green on what is what but I tried to take good pictures. I found the following: -megaladon tooth -mako teeth -130 total shark teeth -partial horse tooth -puffer fish mouth plate -all kinds of bones -petrified wood -Ray teeth -ray barbs -sawfish teeth -whale tooth (?) -croc teeth -Shells, barnacles, coral -12 shark vertebrae Hopefully next time I will be able to upload images faster.
  8. Belgrade Quarry 01/06/17

    Is anyone going to the Belgrade Quarry in Maysville, NC this Friday? If so, do you have any info or tips? I actually read that it was open to the public this Friday 01/06 on the North Carolina Fossil Club page. I tried reaching out but haven't heard anything back yet via email. Thanks in advance! Holly
  9. Hi all! I'm interested in visiting the Onslow and Belgrade Quarries in NC and haven't had much luck finding information. I know we'll need a hardhat, steel toe boots, and safety vest for either. - What time of the year are they open to fossil hunters (I believe it is only on Friday)? - Do we need to let them know we're coming in advance? - Is there a fee? Is tipping encouraged? - Does one have to be affiliated with the NC Fossil Hunters or other group?
  10. New Post, More Pics:unusual Belgrade Find

    I posted this the other day and had a request for more pics. Found: MM Quarry Belgrade (Mayesville) NC Belgrade Formation, late Oligocene/early Miocene and the Trent (River Bend) Formation, Oligocene There are also overlying Miocene/Pliocene and Pleistocene layers. I have seen nothing like this from this or any other NC location. Someone suggested it looked egg like, but I do not see that. I know this may sound odd, and impossible but it looks like an eyeball in its socket to me. Help, suggestions or even some names I can e-mail would be appreciated. Here are a slew of pics from many angles. close ups
