  3. Hadrodus Priscus

    Dear friends can you help me with this , I went to Eocene area to the east of Riyadh city , over the years I found hundreds of HADRODUS PRISCUS gill teeth but the question is why there is different shapes to the teeth ? Is it due to the age of the fish or the position of the tooth or there simply different species?
  4. ??? eocene animal jaw

    Hi friends, can you help me with this? I went to Khrase city, Eocene area , to the east of Riyadh and found ++ tooth like fossils. It was a surface find, it is 3 mm long, 2 mm wide, and 1 mm thick. The edge is sharp & shiny. So what could it be?
  5. Is anybody interested in a straight up swap, some of your matrix for some of mine? Mine's from Abbey Wood, Kent, England. Eocene shark beds, so 54MYA shark, Ray, pike, occasional turtle, croc and very rarely (although I’ve found a few pieces) mammal. It’s been wet sieved, dried out, and totally unsearched! I'm not interested in any money crossing hands, just matrix for matrix. Apparently my photos are too large to be uploaded but can email photos of my finds and the matrix. Let me know if you’re interested
  6. Unknown Shark Tooth?

    Need help with ID please. Cretaceous or Paleocene in Maryland
  7. Hi everyone, so I went to Beltinge, Herne Bay for the first time yesterday. Unfortunately the conditions weren't great so not many teeth and only one complete. I did however find a couple of nice items I'm hoping some intelligent people can help me with! The area is late Palaeocene and early Eocene. 1. Bony fish vertebra. I know these can be hard to ID, but it makes me sad to have such a nice one only to label it 'bony fish'! 2. Bone fragment (Possibly turtle? Is it possible to tell what bone it is?) 3. Chimaeroid fish mouth part? 4. I think this one could just be a conveniently shaped concretion, but another part of me hopes fish tooth? Thanks for your help! 1. 2. 3. 4.
  8. I was going to post this in the fossil of the month for July, until I looked at the date it was collected...mid-June. My, how time flies. Last Spring I found a nice Eocene mammal tooth site west of home. In a few hours I collected a few teeth and made a note to return soon. I did so in June and spent another few hours there (as well as exploring other nearby sites). I collected about 20 complete isolated mammal teeth and two jaws. Here is the better of the two. I am pretty tickled with not only this specimen, but this site as well. It will be a lot of fun to keep going back to. That is my fingerprint for scale. The front of the jaw is facing left; the missing jaw joint is on the right. Notice that the first tooth on the left (third premolar) is taller than the others, and that the third molar (right-most tooth) is quite long. As far as I know, these make it a primate. Not a monkey, mind you, but something along the lines of more primitive primates, such as tarsiers. (Then again, the current classification of these things is quite complicated and it may not be a primate at all). There was quite a collection of these things and similar beasts here during the Eocene, mostly quite small and only known from teeth and jaws. so in FOTM format: Date of Discovery... 15 June 2019 Scientific and/or Common Name... Primate Geologic Age or Geologic Formation... Wind River Fm., early Eocene State, Province, or Region Found... Wyoming Photos of Find (Please limit to 4 clear, cropped, and well-lit images.) see below. (If prepped, before and after photos are required, please.)
  9. GMR find that has me clueless

    Hey-oh! I found this while at GMR and I'm clueless as to what (if anything) it is. I've been though my fossil books and online but the curvature and the indention marks have me puzzled. I've not found something like this before. My luck it is a weird curious rock.. if it is, I'm just going to imagine it's a meg eye lid or something hahaha As always, I welcome your thoughts and appreciate you all Steve
  10. Douglas Pass Colorado

    Fossils found at Douglas Pass, Colorado this weekend. Seed?, Unidentified leaves. Shells. (Elimia tenera and unidentified clam). Plant fossils were found near the Radar Dome. The shells were found at a much lower level.

  19. So, I've been hunting sharks teeth on and off in South Alabama since a young child. Since my two kids have gotten self sufficient, me and the wife have been taking alot of trips to the river to look for teeth. Finding the normal small teeth, for our area, got me to wondering if there were bigger teeth in our area. That led me to some late nights of researching the ins and outs of my area. The area we are close to has alot of Eocene era fossils and I quickly learned the Carcharocles auriculatus was THE SHARK during this time period. So, my goal became to find a complete tooth in my little honey hole. We would spend weekend after weekend at the river with the kids. My 8yo and 3yo right there with us digging and sifting! Both who want nothing more than to become paleontologist when they get older and sit there picking out ray plates, vertebrae, and teeth with excitement growing every time they see something in the sifter. Over the past several weeks, we have dug 100s of teeth and many other cool fossils which I have added to our collection but just chips of the elusive Carcharocles auriculatus teeth were all we were finding. Last night while at church, I was talking with a family about our finds thus far. You could see their kid's eyes lighting up with curiosity and they asked if we could take them sometime. We had originally planned on taking time to do some house stuff but I could tell their kids really wanted to go. We made a plan to meet this morning before the rain. We made the long hike to the hunting grounds and began to dig and sift. One after the other, the kids and their parents were yelling with excitement finding their first teeth! I was digging around getting dirt for them to sift when I felt that unmistakable sound of hitting something solid. I cleaned around the area and I saw a serrated edged tooth. Surely not...not a complete tooth. I carefully cleaned around the area to make sure not to damage it. I couldn't believe my eyes. A full tooth! I began to shake a little with excitement. I pulled it from the earth and showed everyone. This only pumped them up even more. Although this tooth is rare for our area, we kept digging with no luck of finding another one. The rain began to come in so we cut the trip short but I've babied this thing around all day, picking it up to make sure it is real and I wasn't dreaming. I know it's no 4" tooth but for me, it may as well be. It's become an infatuation for me and the family, so much so I have been looking at planning a family vacation around fossil hunting. My 8yo has expressed alot of interest in finding a megalodon tooth. So, if you guys and gals know of a good place I can take the family to do something like this please share! Below are a few pictures of the things we have found over the past few months as well as my Carcharocles auriculatus tooth I found today.
  20. Hello everyone, I wanted to share my small collection of shark teeth with you. On the Belgian coast there are a few places where you can find fossil shark teeth on the beach. Most of the Belgian shoreline has been raised with sand which lacks fossils. Only a few places have been spared so there you can still find teeth. I'm especially proud of the Xyphodolamia Ensis, it's rare on our coast. The Odontaspis hopei was found by a friend of mine. - Alopias latidens - Brachycarcharias lerichei - Hyproprion acanthodon - Jaekelotodus robustus - Myliobatidae sp. (a ray) - Striatolamia macrota - Xyphodolamia ensis - Odontaspis hopei
  21. McAbees is back!

    Well after 7 long years McAbees fossil site is reopening under the watchful eyes of the Bonaparte First Nations. Boy I can hardly wait to get back there and fossil hunt again. Does anyone know the details - how much do they charge, what are the new rules. limits etc?
  22. search for shark teeth

    Hello, so next week i will be o vacation on an island in Greece and i was wondering if its possible to find shark teeth there and how to, i dont know a lot about searching for fossils and if sharks lived there to create them in the first place but i am willing to try so if you could suggest places that fossils could possibly be found like specific places in beaches, mountains or anything you have in mind i would be really thankful. Thanks
  23. Fossil Leaf ID Needed

    Thinking this may be a insect chewed on Bursera inaequalate ralis, any thoughts. Green River Formation.
  24. Hey TFF Members! Cris and I were able to get out and do some super fun Echinoid hunting earlier this week! We were able to find some very nice specimens from the Eocene. If anyone has an ID on the big thick one I found in the video, please let me know! We got stuck in some nasty storms on this trip, but were also lucky enough to see a stunning rainbow! It was a great trip. Check out the vid if you get a chance!
