    Cuban Meg

    It has been awhile since I have been on FF and decided I would post this beautiful Cuban Megalodon Tooth I finished cleaning up last week.
  2. Fossils of New Vulture Species Found in Cubaby Enrico de Lazaro, Previous, Sci News, Jan 13, 2021 "A new species of small vulture that lived during the Quaternary period in the Greater Antilles has been identified from fossils found in western Cuba." The paper is: Suárez, W. and Olson, S.L., 2020. A new fossil vulture (Cathartidae: Cathartes) from Quaternary asphalt and cave deposits in Cuba.

  3. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. Anyone else out

    Miocene Fish-Cuba ID

    Sorry for picture quality, but can anyone help identify this fish found in Matanzas, Cuba? The last picture with fish sitting on top of limestone block has lines drawn on it approximately 3” apart for some type of scale.
  6. Hi I was just at my aunts house and in her house I found a ammonite I asked her where it was from and she said she got it in Cuba which made me wonder what creatures lived in Cuba in the Mesozoic I found out In the Jurassic there where Pliesiosaurs, Ichthyosaurs and ammonites and lots of pterosaurs also there has been some dinosaurs too which surprised me because I thought Cuba was under water there’s a few remains of sauropods a Camarasaur and a Diplodocus like sauropod some more fragmented Sauropod bones and some bones of a unknown Saurischian also some unknown reptile bones have been foun
  7. The Summer 2019 issue of Fossil News features the paleoart of Jimi Catanzaro, an article about late-Cretaceous pterosaurs in Cuba, more on that ammonite in amber you've been hearing so much about, an exclusive excerpt from Enrico Bonino’s new book about fossil medusozoans and how primitive algal mats helped preserve them, and a whole lot more! tinyurl.com/fnsubscribe

    Fossil found In Cuba

    I found this fossil in Guantanamo, Bay, Cuba. It was in the wall of a road cutout. I’ve looked online and been unable to find any as large. If anyone can tell me more information about it, that would be great. The hinges are intact and working. Thank you

    Going to Cuba: need Megs!

    Hello all, I'm going to Cuba in a few weeks and, if possible, would like to acquire some Cuban megalodon teeth while over there. I've done a little research but have only turned up what the formation is called that they are generally found in. Considering that I'll only have about 3 days there, I'm not against just buying them from locals if they're available. Does anyone have any knowledge of where I should go outside of the formation itself (not even sure if I'd have access to it)? Anyone know if its possible to dig there?
  10. This tooth is the biggest tooth I have seen come out of Cuba, it is a huge primary tooth. I will have to get Matty Swilp to restore the tooth when it arrives.
  11. Can any of the turtle experts give me any insite into this fossil turtle being offered to me in Cuba. Thanks

    Cuban Megalodon Shape

    Please Help ID- Cuban Fossil

    Please help me ID this fossil I found in Cuba. Thanks
  15. I found this tooth a few days ago, while walking around a limestone quarry in Cardenas, Cuba. I was digging through discarded pieces of limestone blocks, threw a large piece and the stone split showing me this beautiful tooth. It measures 5.015". This tooth is my nicest personal find and one of the nicest teeth I have seen come out of Cuba. I usually buy my teeth and consider myself super lucky to find this myself.
  16. This tooth was found in a limestone quarry very close to Pinar del Rio, Vinales Valley, in the western part of Cuba. The limestone in this part of the province is very fossil rich. It is known to contain fossil remains of prehistoric marine reptiles and mollusks. Tooth measures 4.01"
  17. These are a few of the pdf files (and a few Microsoft Word documents) that I've accumulated in my web browsing. MOST of these are hyperlinked to their source. If you want one that is not hyperlinked or if the link isn't working, e-mail me at joegallo1954@gmail.com and I'll be happy to send it to you.

  19. Here are a few more fossil specimans from Cuba that are waiting to be picked up next week.
  20. Wondering if anyone has any idea what these fossils might be. Sorry for picture quality. They are from Cuba, same quarry they find the megalodon teeth. Lower-Middle Miocene. Any help would be appreciated.

    Questions Afer Visiting Cuba

    No, I din't find megaladon or anything valuble, sorry. One item (was founded in the rocks) that looks definetely like fossil is: My questions are about the other things I found in the ocean: 1. I hope these teeth didn't belong to goat or pig, but i am not sure that there are fossils. 2. I found some nice pieces, but again, not sure that these fossils. For me it looks mostly like construction material. Kind of concrete with shells and corals. 3. Whats that? 4. Are there "modern" corals or fossils? I will really appreciate your help. Thank you! P.S. I have the other it
