  1. NSR Fish Teeth

    These are fish teeth found in the north sulfur river in ladonia, tx. They are likely from enchodus.
  2. North Sulphur River

    I had a fun trip looking for shark teeth and artifacts yesterday at the North Sulphur River Texas. I found a large Enchodus tooth, nice shark tooth, mosasaur jaw section, other assorted fossils and some cool artifacts. Weather was perfect.
  3. I walked in tracks all day hunting but still managed a few finds. I really like the coprolite full of little fish bones and the Pleistocene horse ankle bone. I believe the little fish jaw is Saurodon.
  4. Picked this up at a show over the weekend and was wondering exactly what it is and if its real. Is it an Endochus jaw? The host rock is about 7 inches long and the logest jaw piece is about 4 inches long. Thanks! Eric
  5. Dear fellow forum goers, These past few weeks have been quite busy, but that has not stopped me from going on the occasional fossil excursion. A few trips went by since my last posting and I decided to let some trips accumulate before posting again. On these trips I interacted with forum members @Woopaul5 and @frankh8147. The most recent trip was today, 08/12/18, and was somewhat productive. Frank found what we believe to be a part of a mosasaur brain case, which will surely be in his "finds of the year list". I was not as luck but ended up scoring a small point fragment and a jaw section of some fish. There were also some nice quality teeth that I found today. Other than this trip, I scored some nice finds on a few other trips throughout the two months. I hope you enjoy the finds, as I enjoyed finding them, and have a nice day. Kind regards, Trevor Overall Finds Stream Worn Shark's Teeth
  6. I found this neat enchodus tail online for not much $. I'm fairly certain it's real, but I'm posting this in the Is It Real? Forum because I feel like this may be a composit. I drew a line where I think two pieces were composited to form a complete tail. Any ideas? The piece is 7 x 8 inches.
  7. Hello, calling to all experts on Moroccan fossils - are these fossils real? Kasia
  8. After coming back from college this Saturday I knew exactly what I had to do: hit the streams in NJ to find some fossils. I lived in Ohio for the majority of the year and did not have access to a car or fossils. I had to take advantage of the resources that I regained after coming back home. I have had a myriad of dreams about fossils from NJ and had to finally get in the brooks to live out those dreams. Frank seems to have taken advantage of the rain in the last month (he just posted another subject in Fossil Hunting Trips) - I missed this opportunity and begged my parents to go surface hunting for me to no avail. I went with my grandma on Tuesday 22 May, and again with my two friends on 23 May. I stayed in the streams for about two hours on Tuesday and found a partial mosasaur tooth. Then on Wednesday I found a worn mosasaur vert and some enchodus jaws. I hunted for 3.5 hours on Wednesday. I mostly sifted but also used a rake and a clear plastic bin to search for things in the water; this is how I found the majority of the enchodus material. Here are the finds.

  9. Hello! It has been extremely rainy here in New Jersey the past few months month but I have found a few windows to check out the New Jersey Cretaceous streams in Monmouth County. As you would expect, the water levels have been high but at least the water temperature has finally warmed up! I figured I would share a few of my favorite finds over the past few months. They are, in order - an enchodus jaw section with teeth, a spondylus inside a Pycnodonte, two Mosasaur teeth (I really like the smokey blue colors on the smaller one), an echinoid, ammonite and baculite pieces, and ischyrhiza rostals, Cretaceous turtle shell, a gastropod, mosasaur tooth, bivalve, and enchodus fangs in the last picture.
  10. Hi guys! Saw this fossil online for a cheap price and I was wondering if it was real. I’m not very familiar with these Moroccan fossils but this piece looks ok to me, I just prefer to ask. The left fragment piece looks a bit weird. It is 30cm. Thanks for the help (this is the only picture I have,sorry...) kind regards
  11. I went on a 6 1/2 mile kayak adventure with a couple of friends on the North Sulphur River. We started off the day at 7AM by seeing 2 bald eagles and almost getting one truck stuck in the mud. We managed to get the truck out and started our adventure. As soon as I got down by the bridge I found one of my best artifacts to date and a nice piece of mastodon tooth enamel. We got a mile or so in and something made me ask my friend if he had the keys to his truck that was parked 6 1/2 miles downstream? Lol he had left them in the other truck without thinking. He went back and got his keys and the adventure begin. We saw very little footprints the entire trip. We didn't find many artifacts but I filled up a 1 gallon ziplock with mosasaur bones and other random fossils. One of my friends found his first shark vert, mosasaur vert and point so he was really excited. I gave my new hunter friend all my lower quality items and didn't bother taking pics of them. The water was low in some places so we had to drag the kayaks a lot but it was fun. We were finding so much stuff that we realized we would never make it the other vehicle before night if we did not quit hunting and paddle. It was so hard passing by untouched bars lol. We managed to make it back to the bridge by 7PM which was 12 hours later. Getting the kayaks up the steep bridge at the second location took all 3 men and a long rope. I got home at 9:30 PM. I'm sore but found some great fossils and artifacts. My phone died early in the trip so I missed out on some great pics. For some reason I can only post a few pics at a time since the latest update.
  12. Enchodus or Plesiosaur?

    Enchodus or Plesiosaur? South Sulphur River Texas Cretaceous find. I think Enchodus but I'm not really sure how to tell the difference? It does seem a little different from my other dozen or so Enchodus.
  13. Smoky Hill Chalk, Kansas ID Help

    Today I came across a flat of Cretaceous Niobrara Formation / Smoky Hill Chalk- Kansas fish fossils, from a couple years ago. I was hoping that @Xiphactinus or other members might be able to help with and / or correct son ID's that I made on the following specimens. Any help would be appreciated. Xiphactinus audax Vert. Enchodus Tooth Saurodon leanus Jaw Sections Cimolichthys Jaw Sections Unknown Jaw Section Unknown Tail / Fin Pieces Unknown Fish Vert.
  14. North Sulphur River

    Fun North Sulphur River Texas hunt. The big Tylosaur tooth and coprolite were my favorite finds of the day.
  15. Ramanessin Surprise

    Hit Ramanessin Brook on Sunday (Late Cretaceous, marine, New Jersey) and saw a nice hunk of matrix with mollusk impressions sticking out of a gravel bar. Rinsing it revealed a gorgeous Enchodus palatine! I've never seen vertebrate remains in the NJ brooks in hard, fine matrix like this. And the chunk is riddled with gastropod and bivalve impressions and an impression of the worm tube Hamulus - my first. Score of the day!
  16. Took a trip last Friday to a quarry that has exposures of the Eocene Castle Hayne Formation and the Cretaceous PeeDee Formation. First let me say it was hot!!! Did I say it was hot? During the day many of us spent extra time in the cars/trucks with the a/c running and drinking extra fluids. The forecast temps were for the high 80's and low 90's, but down in the bowl of the quarry with no wind I believe it was in the high 90's low 100's. However the finds were very good. Almost everyone found at least one Hardouinia kellumi echinoid, several nice enchodus teeth were also found. I saw several crab carapaces along with abundant H. mortonis and Echinolampas appendiculatta echinoids. A massive C. auriculatus was found that in my opinion if the tip was there (feeding damage) would have been close to 4 3/8 inches. Lots of smaller Eocene teeth were found along with some Squalicorax. A multitude of brachiopods were found also, a few different species too. As far as myself I found plenty of brachiopods, Plictoria wilmingtonensis and 2 other species I am working on I.D.ing. Plenty of H. mortonis and E. appendiculatta. I also found one H. kellumi and a very uncommon high domed H. mortonis emmonsi echinoid. Also a beautiful, but small enchodus ferox tooth; a nice small Eocarpilius carolinensis crab carapace and a very nice Entemnotrochus nixus gastropod (slit shell). A few decent teeth and a smattering of other items. H. mortonis on a natural pedestal H. kellumi H. mortonis emmonsi in this last pic the emmonsi is on the left to show the difference in the dome Eocarpilius carolinensis Enchodus ferox tooth Entemnotrochus nixus gastropod and the best of the many H. mortonis
  17. Long NSR Hike!

    Long hike at NSR. I did manage to find my first turtle vert and Stratodus palatine bone. I love the colors on the little Mosasaur tail vert. It was a beautiful day and animals were on the move. More pics.
  18. It was my first time hunting in awhile due to my crazy work schedule. Since we haven't had a good rain I figured it would be picked over. I found some really nice Mosasaur verts, coprolite and my best Clidastes jaw section yet with multiple replacement teeth showing. The fish vert is from one of the large Cretaceous fish probably Xiphactinus. The artifacts, Gastropods, Enchodus tooth, Mastodon tooth enamel and other Pleistocene tooth were a nice bonus. You can see little bones in all the coprolite. I will hit it again next week for sure.
  19. 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?
  20. 3-7-17 NSR Trip

    A muddy but fun NSR trip. I found a nice variety of fossils & artifacts. Some pretty good size baculites this time. @GeschWhat will probably appreciate the coprolite. It's full of bones under magnification.
  21. I'm assuming all are enchodus except the bottom left 2, I'm assuming sawfish if u guys could confirm....thanks!
