  1. Fossil "D"

    Help with ID please.

    Found by a diver in SC. Was told it was possibly a genus Y dolphin lower jaw section. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  2. Hey all, Thought I would share this blog post that has a comprehensive review of all papers in marine mammal paleontology published in 2020. Enjoy! https://coastalpaleo.blogspot.com/2020/12/2020-in-review-advances-in-marine.html

    Peace River ID help

    Got out to the Peace River, FL yesterday for another hunt. The water level finally seemed low enough that I would be able to get to my target spot and have a productive day. The only problem was the fact that the sun never came out and I had to quit early due to getting wet and cold with no way to warm up. Luckily I had my emergency dry shirt to change into before I started shivering! I always keep one on board the kayak sealed in a plastic bag. Came up with several of the usual items, horse tooth, partial megs, couple of hemis, turtle and a nice gator tooth. Then I pulled up what I believ

    Weird sea mammal bone

    Hi guys, I found this bone on the Bulgarian shore of the Black sea, near Balchik. In the region there have been found the remains of cetotherium sp., dolphins, seals, flamingos and others. I am wondering though what exact bone it is and of course of what. I thought that it may be a part of a fin or something like that, but I failed to find a photo of a bone like this. Any help for the identification will be very much appreciated! And happy soon to be new year!!
  5. Hi All, I could use some help identifying what looks to be a tooth? I found it on Wrightsville Beach, NC. Is it a tooth? If so, what kind? Porpoise? Whale? I have been searching with no luck so I thought I would ask the kind people on this forum. Thanks, J

    Lee Creek Dolphin Tooth?

    I have here a tooth from Lee Creek, Aurora, North Carolina. I believe it to be Kentriodon. It's a hair above 1". Does this seem accurate? If so, could it potentially be narrowed down further yet? Thank you, Bellamy

    Aurora, NC - Squalodon?

    I have a dozen teeth from Aurora, North Carolina that I believe to be from the toothed whale Squalodon. Instead of uploading photos of that many, I'm uploading a few that are representative of the dozen and detailed photographs of three of these. For context, the first tooth here is 2.5" long and 1" wide at its thickest.
  8. I have here a 3" piece of bone, found in Calvert Cliffs, Maryland. I'm not well-versed enough with these to narrow it down further from marine mammal, and am hoping that these photographs contain some identifying features that may be useful to one more familiar with these. Can it be narrowed down any further?
  9. Hello. I'm working on organizing my collection and was wondering if anyone could help me with some identifications. Thanks for any help. I don't have any info on this one. I think it is a Mucrospirifer brachiopod. Can someone confirm this? Help with the species name would be appreciated. Thanks. These are crinoid stems. I don't have any further information. Does anyone know the species, where they came from, or the approximate age? Thanks. I think this is a dolphin tooth. It was found on the Ernst Ranch in Bakersfield, California. Can a
  10. Hey all, I wrote up some more on our recent paper on the giant dolphin Ankylorhiza (formerly Genus Y) from the Oligocene of South Carolina - this is a bit more interesting as it covers the anatomy, adaptations, feeding ecology, and evolutionary implications of the discovery. Hope you can give it a read! https://coastalpaleo.blogspot.com/2020/08/ankylorhiza-tiedemani-giant-dolphin_9.html
  11. I celebrated my birthday recently with three days of shark tooth hunting along Maryland's Calvert Cliffs (Miocene exposures) and had a blast, despite the hot and muggy weather. I still haven’t found that elusive Meg, but I added some great new finds to my growing (since January) collection! Day 1: Matoaka For the first day, I went to Matoaka. Low tide was in the early morning and I wanted to beat both the heat (as much as possible) and crowds, so I got up bright and early, arriving just after sunrise. I’m pretty sure I was the first one on the beach as I didn’t see any
  12. Hey all, Since COVID began and I've had more free time I've been getting back to blogging, and now I'm regretting taking such a hiatus since I started here in Charleston. I've written the first of a 2 or 3 part series of semi-technical blog articles that most here should understand and appreciate on our new study on the giant dolphin Ankylorhiza tiedemani (formerly known as Genus Y). The first post is about the background to our paper, and the second one will be a bit more on the anatomy, feeding behavior, locomotion, and evolutionary implications of Ankylorhiza. Take a read here:

    Dolphin Humerus

    Found August 1st in Calvert Cliffs State Park in Maryland. Found digging around in deposits about 4 feet into the water. Area is known for Miocene fossils... Sharks teeth, vertebrae, whale bone, etc. It is definitely stone not some kind of metal.
  14. Hey all - in discussing my recent research on the new extinct dolphin Ankylorhiza with science journalists, I was reminded of previous frustrations from earlier discussions with students, museum visitors, fossil collectors, journalists, and even other scientists about the meaning of the words whale, dolphin, and porpoise. Some disagreements were on this forum, others were on facebook fossil groups - the whole notion of "that's not a dolphin tooth that's a whale tooth" or vice versa is plagued by the fact that these terms have multiple established meanings and are imprecise, leading to lots of

    Dolphin skull

    While working in James City NC today I ran across someone else's find sitting on a bulkhead. It appears to be modern but it was still something to see completely intact.
  16. Hello all! Sorry for the not-so-great photos here. My phone camera is... kind of a fossil. I found this mystery fossil on the beach in North Carolina, USA, somewhere near Emerald Isle if I'm recalling correctly. My best guess is that it's a periotic bone from a dolphin, porpoise, or something of the like, but it doesn't totally match up with images I've seen. I've also considered that it could be a ballast bone, but again, hard to confirm via Google search. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
  17. I need help identifying this Bone I found after a storm at OBX. The sandal in the picture is a mans size 10.

    SMALL teeth but not micro

    I have recently found dugong, whale, and dolphin ribs. Hunting friend gave me a tiny rib that we both thought might be dolphin. He is NOT a bone collector. I found a small dolphin tooth. It is 13mm. How small do these get? and then a predator tooth. I will just leave the photos, and request comments and identifications.
  19. Hi all - I did not have time in January when I normally write these up, but thanks to Covid quarantine I managed to get some time last month and write up a comprehensive review on my blog of every single 2019 paper in marine mammal paleontology. Enjoy! https://coastalpaleo.blogspot.com/2020/05/2019-in-review-advances-in-marine.html

    Atlantic beach NC finds

    We are on vacation at Atlantic beach NC. My wife and l went shell collecting and I just happened to find these. I recognize the ray mouth plate but I'm drawing a blank on the other, dolphin or fish?

    Porpoise / Dolphin Bone?

    Is this bone from a porpoise or dolphin? it came from Palo’s verdes California and was found on the beach there. If so any idea on the age?

    Mystery mammal tooth?

    Found this tooth the other day at a miocene exposure along the Potomac River in Virginia (Westmoreland State Park). Hoping someone can help me identify Thanks in advance - Mitch
  23. Hi all, I had a fairly productive first outing to Westmoreland State Park but I have no idea what any of the fossils I found are. I am happy to provide close-ups of any of the individual fossils, and in addition to the photos here, I posted some to imgur to get around the size restriction here. https://imgur.com/gallery/2uIedQS Thanks for your help!
  24. Good day out on the bay, I kayaked down the cliffs in the morning and pulled in to do some surface collecting. I wasn’t finding many large shark teeth but I found my most amount of dolphin teeth in a day!
  25. Great hunt today, left with a hand full of nice teeth, the best being my Chub and my dolphin teeth
