  1. Found this tooth in Ramanessin in Holmdel, NJ. It is about 1.4" long, and it is missing about 1/4 of the top. There are striations along the entire length on all sides, and the top of the tooth has a very faint slightly raised line, but not to the extent of the Mosasaur teeth that I've found previously, so I'm leaning towards it being a Crocodile tooth, or possibly some other species. I figured I would ask for some opinions, since I am far from an expert. Thanks in advance for any input.
  2. Shark Tooth

    So, I bought this shark tooth, but I don't even know if it is a fossil (the guy who I bought it from said it was a fossil, but idk if I can trust his words). Can someone help me identify if it is a fossil and from which type of shark it is?
  3. Hey Everyone, very cool forum. I've been fascinated with fossils since I was a boy and recently had the opportunity to take my family on a fossil expedition to a barrier island in the Cooper River in Charleston, SC. Could anyone help me identify this tooth? From browsing your site and others I'm thinking Croc or Mosasaur. Thanks!
  4. I noticed this on a online listing, and I’ve never seen anything like it before. It’s a T.rex tooth for sale, but it’s serrations are Y shaped on the front side. I was wondering if this is a type of a pathological tooth. I’ve noticed sellers listing misshaped shark teeth as pathological, and I wasn’t sure If the term applied here too or not. I was also wondering if it’s rare or not and if it only happens to T.rex teeth. Just something I noticed and though was out of the ordinary.
  5. I found this Dilophosaurus tooth for sale online and am suspicous of its authenticity. The problem is I don't know a lot (or anything) about dinosaur teeth and how one would go about spotting a cast. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.
  6. I found this upper canine from a Smilodon for sale online. The number of surface imperfections lead me to believe the tooth is authentic though it could be a particularly well done cast. The seller has a couple other Smilodon fossils both of which seem legitimate. However the fossil is coming from China and I hear falsified fossils are very common in China. I would greatly appreciate another opinion thanks.
  7. Identify Shark Tooth?

    My grandson found this, what looks like a fossil shork tooth this weekend. Found in Puerto Penasco, Mexico it is
  8. Spinosaurus gift

    I thought I would share this. A gift for my 6-year old nephew's birthday. An amazing Spinosaurus model/toy with working jaw, highly detailed, and an actual Spino fossil tooth, approx. 150 myo. I know if I were a 6 year old crazy about dinosaurs, which I was, and still am, would go berserk over this gift. I almost want to keep them for myself, haha. and Happy Mothers Day to all of the moms out there! KP
  9. Mammal tooth fragment .. Savannah River

    Hi There, Picked up this tooth fragment while sifting on the Savannah river. The sifter always seems to pull up cool stuff. First time in a long time that I brought out the heavier gear and my arms were dying by the end of the day. It looks too robust for a tapir tooth (?) and the chewing surfaces (what is left of them) feels off. I know the fauna is similar in the Florida Peace river. This would be Pliocene-Pleistocene @digit @Shellseeker does this strike your fancy right off as something recognizable. It may be too much of a fragment. Thanks, Brett
  10. Hi everyone and Merry Christmas! So yesterday I got a mosasaurus tooth from my brother. He bought it in Germany for few euros. I was shocked because i thought that things like that cost thousands euros! Is it possible that this tooth is real??? I'm really happy that I got it but I just can't believe it's real I'm sending you guys pictures of this tooth, please tell me what you think! And again, Merry Christmas everyone! (It's first time when I'm using forum so sorry if I did something wrong!!)
  11. I found this tooth at North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina last week and I have no idea what species to which it belongs. Any help would be appreciated in figuring out what it is. Thanks!
  12. Mosasaurus hoffmani?

    So I found this in a stream in New Jersey. Fossil shark teeth are common, along with Mosasaurs teeth, although they are less common. Dinsosaur bones are a rare occurance in this location. I think it is a Mosasaur tooth fragment and it’s large size (probably over 2 inches if complete) would put it in the range of Mosasaurs hoffmani, a species that has been found in the area but is very rare. It could also be a bone of some sort and not a tooth at all. I was hoping someone with more knowledge on the subject could shed some light on this find.
  13. Found these while searching some of the very fine matrix from Sharktooth hill. My first thought was a cusp from a shark tooth, but they have no damage other than no root. Had a couple of other thoughts, but they did not fit either. This left Me with fish tooth as the most likely candidate. Please help to deny or confirm this idea. Scale in millimeters. Thanks for any help, Tony
  14. ID needed please

    Hello! Let me introduce myself. Im an old guy in Northeastern Calif. I Do a lot of hiking in the High Desert of Lassen county. Last week on a 2 night 20 hike i found this. Im a fairly knowledgeable about what i usually find. Arrowheads ,jasper, petroglyphs but this is the first time ive found what i believe to be a fossil tooth. The area is Near Karlo Calif and is known to have Pleistocene fossils according to a friend. Any help or input would be great. Peace Alan
  15. Heavy Bison Lean but not sold yet

    i found this tooth on a gravel bar today, I'm thinking buffalo but seems big even for that, ive found horn cores part of a skull and a few leg bones of a buffalo up river but they are still bone. this tooth could be from the same animal but it seems unusually dense so it may be fossilized and therefore from another animal. or bison teeth are naturally dense i don't know looking for help with id. if my osteology class taught me anything i can tell you its an upper right molar but that's all I'm confident about.
  16. What is this tooth?

    I purchased this tooth on an auction site for very cheap and I'm wondering what it could be. It is from Calvert Cliffs,Maryland and its 3,5cm. Thats All the information I know... I have 2 guesses: whale or Pliosaur though I think it's more whale than Pliosaur because they are very rare... What do you think? Any clue or detail would help.Thanks
  17. Help identify fossil tooth

  18. Need help identifying shark tooth

    Hello folks. I bought this tooth about 10 years ago from a seller in Georgia. He had no clue as to what shark it came from. I just recently made a necklace out of it and felt like I should know what species it’s from. It also appears to be very old. Anyone have a clue? Very much appreciated!
  19. My fifth megalodon repair

    Hello all! This is my fifth attempt at repairing a megalodon tooth. Below are all the photos of the process. If anyone has broken megs like this one and wants to give them away, then send me a PM.
  20. This tooth is from South Carolina, and it doesn't look like any of the species i am familiar with. It seems like the root is way to big for it to be a meg.
  21. ID help needed

    Good evening fossil friends. I'm looking for assistance in an ID for this tooth found in a tributary of the Peace River in Arcadia, FL. Thank you in advance.
  22. Parotodus benedeni?

    I have this tooth, and I was wondering if it is a false mako tooth. I haven't really seen anything like it in my guide except for a false mako.
  23. Shark Tooth Dilemma

    I recieved £70.00 for christmas and i then added that to the money i have earned which now gives me £99.15, which is enough to get this shark tooth I want, but it would mean the majority of my money gone. The shark tooth is of a Alopias grandis. I'm not sure if i should save my money and buy some models, since i collect them, or get this Alopias grandis tooth. I am fascinated by this shark! Its huge, and according to my research, it was the second biggest shark to have ever lived , measuring in at a length of 13 meters and it was big enough to swallow a fully grown man whole!
