Headed back to the creek; local kids have been busy, a lot of energy into digging, and changing channels in the creek bed. At one spot I saw something barely protruding above the sand, looked to be a huge mako! BUT, it was just a sliver; i had the tip and probably most of the 2" blade edge (no serrations), and no root. The story of my life! Looked hard for more, but nothing. Found three angel shark teeth, one with an unusually big base, a bunch of mostly broken drum teeth. Found the usual sand tiger sharks, a couple of heavy based tiger shark teeth (rare in the creek), skate teeth pieces and one partial stinger, two fin Tilly bones, a broken bonito nose, some elongated "teeth" (at least one had enamel on the tip end), two vertebrae and two vert pieces, and assorted gray shark and requiem shark teeth. Some stuff is small fossil, but no idea what it is. Found one heavy 8" bone, guessing cow. Great to be out, saw birds eggs in a nest, lots of frogs and a few salamanders, crayfish and lots of scuds/freshwater shrimp..
Out of action for a bit, but figured a good time to post what I have been collecting since coming back from Singapore summer of 2018. Starting with sandtiger shark teeth, since they are the most common here. Really like the little hook cusps which I seldom see on both sides on the biggest teeth. Cusps are most prominent (but often nubs) on the lateral(?) medium sized wider, root teeth. Symphyseal teeth are not that rare (wish they were cowshark!); often I think one is a split tooth until I examine it carefully; the roots are distinctive. The small teeth may include a few that are not sandtiger, but I'm thinking since they are most common, many of the non-descript small teeth probably are sandtiger. Scale shown for all the teeth in first photo is in cm.
britishcanuk posted a topic in Fossil IDA fellow TFF member gave me some micro material from the Eocene, Meridian Mississippi . I don't know much about micro fossils so was hoping to get some info on the following? Which were all photographed next to a US nickel. photos 1 and 2
