  1. Alabama Hunt

    I was invited back this past Tuesday to hunt the same private property as I did a few weeks ago and wound up having another awesome afternoon. Also found another hybodus spine which absolutely made my day. It’s definitely not as nice as the first one but it’s still pretty sweet.
  2. Unknown Cretaceous claw core

    My hunting partner scored this sweet little piece today and it has me scratching my head as to what it is. It was found in the blufftown formation of Alabama (Campanian)...its a 1/2” long and 1/4” wide. It appears to be a claw core of some sort but from what I have no clue. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Afternoon hunt in Alabama

    I was able to sneak away for an afternoon hunt yesterday and wound up having an awesome day. I found well over a hundred teeth but the best find of the day for me was this small hybodus fin spine. It’s only 1-7/16” long and 3/8” wide but what it lacks in size it makes up for in character!
  4. Unknown Cretaceous tooth

    I found this tooth last week in the blufftown formation that runs through South Alabama. It was found on the same bar as the fully rooted Xiphactinus tooth I posted a couple of weeks ago. To me, it appears to be another tooth with a partial root but I’m unsure. It has characteristics of both Xiphactinus audax and vetus so that’s what has me so puzzled. It’s just over 1.25 inches long and a .25 inches wide. Any thoughts/comments would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Unknown Cretaceous tooth

    I’m pretty sure this is an xiphactinus tooth but I’ve never seen one that’s fully rooted before so that’s what has me questioning my original thought. I have several X-fish in my collection but all appear to sheds or broken off where the root would’ve been. I found this tooth last Sunday on a bar where I’ve found 10-12 other X-fish. It was found in the Blufftown formation of Alabama and is 1-5/8” long, 5-16” wide. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated!
  6. Unknown Cretaceous tooth

    This is a cool looking little guy I found this past weekend in South Alabama. The area found was a marine environment within the Blufftown formation. The tooth is 1/2” long, 5/16” wide, and has an flattened oval shape to it. The enamel Is identical to a few of the plesiosaur teeth I have from this area but the flattened shape is throwing me off. The tooth is smooth all the way around with no carinae. Any thoughts or comments would be very much appreciated!
  7. I'm having a hard time with this one! It was found in the bluff town formation located in South Alabama. My theories have ranged from a simple geo-fact to fish scales so I'm hoping someone can help shine some light my way and know what it is! Its roughly 1-1/2" long and an 1/2" thick and the pattern follows the entire perimeter around the piece. Any thoughts or comments would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Terence
  8. Possible Otodus from Alabama

    I came across this tooth in a scud box that a friend of mine had. He hunts the same creeks in SE Alabama that I do and the creek that he stated that the tooth was found in cuts through the middle of the Blufftown formation. The only thing I can think that it could be is an Otodus and Im flat out curious what y'all think. It's definitely a one of a kind piece from our area though, regardless of what it is! It's 1-7/16" long and 1-1/8" wide. Any comments would be greatly appreciated!
  9. Cretaceous unknowns

    I have a few items that I can't seem to ID from southeast Alabama. They were all found in the Blufftown formation and are somewhat worn from the wet environment they were found in. As always with my posts, any comments will be greatly appreciated. This first little guy reminds me of a drum fish plate but it's way smaller that anything else I've seen from this area. It's roughly an 1/2" square and 3/16" thick.
