  1. Centipede Type Fossil?

    I found this in southern Utah. What is it? Thanks
  2. Weird stuff from nc

    What are these?
  3. Missouri unknown

    I found this thing at one of my usual roadcuts in eastern Missouri. I'm thinking it's part of a large trilobite segment. I glued it back together after breaking it while extracting it and prepped it the best I could.
  4. Pearly Whites for Great Whites!

    I had a good weekend on the river this past Saturday and Sunday. I did some fishing and scouting for new dig spots. I have yet to find my own place where 1. no one else knows/digs that I am networked with 2. that produces decent quality and OK quantity. Saturday evening that was checked off from my fossil hunting bucket list, though. I plugged down the river in my lil 14' jon boat, saw some shells atop a bank that looked familiar to the fossil pecten in edgecomb county and made a quick dash to the shore! I had quite the struggle among the brush and trees between myself and these barely visible shells - but I made it, grabbed a very nice C. madisonius with some little barnacles atop of it. As I'm climbing down I spot something embedded in the rock/hardened clay and got so excited I literally laughed out loud. MEGLADON TOOTH! -This I was not expecting, but welcomed! I pried it out, really neat color and sadly chipped away about a third - but still in good condition and a promising sign as I looked around and also found two beautiful little great whites almost pearly white! Such unique colored teeth for this part of eastern NC as normally my finds, like GMR, are darker grays and blacks and then you have the aurora teeth and hour east that these appeared more like in color but still different. I would love to know the minerals responsible for this coloration here. Anyhow, I returned with my Good digging partner, Rick, Sunday and we found a few more things that were alright. More to explore - more to come I'm sure!
  5. Eastern NC - Bison Tooth ID Assistance

    I found this in a gravel bed at Greens Mill Run (GMR) Yesterday afternoon. I am thinking it's Bison, but would like confirmation and also assistance with which species and possible age. It's fossilized (tinks like a rock when tapped on a metal shovel) so I want to assume it's not modern but I suppose I cannot rule out the possibility of it being colonial? the range/mix of material at GMR might make this difficult - as I found it with shark teeth and whale bone much like everything else - even horse teeth.
  6. Xiphactinus Or Enchodus Id help - GMR NC

    Could someone assist in determining if these two items are an Enchodus or Xiphactinus? I found the larger one this past Saturday and the smaller one a few weeks ago, same general area at GreensMill Run in Greenville NC. Found these among whale bone, great white, tiger and crow shark teeth and a couple sharks of likely mastadon tooth - obviously a nice mix from a huge time span. I assumed enchodus until a friend mentioned the Xiphactinus, which I didn't even know was an option yet, so I would also appreciate detail on how I can discern between the two in the future - characteristics etc. 1. 2. and I also have several of these, ranging in size/condition some with enamel etc - this one as I'm taking photos I realized the tooth part of it might not actually be what I was thinking for this one, but the rest have the more rounded tooth, anyhow, are these jaw pieces with broken teeth like those above to be identified?
  7. Lil Skull with brains and all?!

    This looks like a little skull with brains and such still intact - is that wishful thinking? Found this at GreensMill Run, Greenville, NC. It's fossilized, was found in a huge array from horse tooth to shark teeth to whale bone and lots of tilly fish bones etc. Is it a skull, if so is it fish? I am assuming fish because I've not found much of anything mammal fossilized at GMR aside from horse teeth, which this obviously wouldn't be a horse.
  8. OK - I will start off by saying that I'm just letting you all know this is a dinosaur egg and I am only posting this here to tell you that and deny any accusations otherwise!! LOL kidding!! BUT! I found this interesting object at GMR (greensmill Run, NC) with some smaller tiger shark teeth and whale bone fragments, belemnites, tilly fish bones and a really worn rick tooth. It's rock hard, looks and feels like a nut you eat at Christmas time (I can't recall the name) but the thing split in half and inside looks like wood to me - however it's SOLID and def. something fossilized - can wood have been worked into this shape or is it a nut/seed? I can get more photos, it was really hard to photograph the shape of it, it's not perfectly oblong, though it seems that way in the photo it's warped,angled slightly more inward/concaved near the end a bit on one side. It's also sort of long grooved like those large nuts I can't recall the name of. Sorry for holding it, I couldn't get it angled right laying down - I won't quit my in aspirations of being a hand model on HSN, no worries! Last photo is it opened up how it split (I'm assuming when I hit it with the shovel)
  9. Asking for some help if I could get an ID on the species of this recent find of mine? I've pulled from GMR (GreensMill Run Greenville NC) Rick noted it's def. Reptile but unsure 100% if it's Croc or mossasaur? Any clarification on that and if there is enough of it to go further into a species/placement/relative size of what it belonged to would be AMAZING! I found it with the usual GMR assembly of great white, tiger shark teeth, whale bone/ear bone, a mossasaur tooth and petrified wood.
  10. GMR Vert ID Assistance

    I was hoping I could get an ID on the species of this recent find of mine. This is def. the largest most complete vert I've pulled from GMR (GreensMill Run Greenville NC)- and let me tell you I was quite stoked even though it's a bit broken! I'm assuming it's whale but was curious if anyone could tell me what kind of whale and also verify it's a cervical vert? I found it with the usual GMR assembly of great white, tiger shark teeth, whale bone/ear bone, a mossasaur tooth and petrified wood.
  11. I have some shells I collected from the cliffs off the Tar River that I would greatly appreciate some ID assistance on. I got into books and websites and see they are Chesapecten and probably mostly Jeffersonius... but there are some features I don't know enough about to feel 100% in my research - I hope these photos will be clear enough but I can provide more if not. Any assistance/direction would be great! I have several so I will just number them and hopefully that will make replies easier. 1.
  12. ID help - Greenville NC/GMR concretion

    Found this guy at the wonderful GMR - it was hard to get some decent photos, it's kind of small, maybe an inch each way. I am thinking it's a concretion, initial a snail or something, but I've never found one with the outside of the swirly shell parts concreted so I'm curious if I'm on the right path or not - maybe it's an ear bone or an aliens Egg, I could be way off - so as always, any input is greatly appreciated!! Found this among small shark teeth (tiger, bull, crow) tilly fish bones and belemnites.
  13. Great White Shark Tooth 2015 GMR

    Found November 26 2015 at GreensMill Run.
  14. Eastern NC Bone ID

    Found this in Pitt county, NC among sharks teeth (megs, tiger, Makko's), whale bone, turtle bone and some Croc teeth. Area is generally York Town formation but potentially has a little cape fear in there according to some topo maps I reviewed. I would like to know if it's possible to determine what part of the body the bone came from and also what species or at least a general idea of what sort of species, please.
