  1. Hi there! I went fossil hunting today at GMR and found all these awesome bones! I am most interested in what the top row, first 3 on left could be. They were found right next to each other. all the other bones were found in a close distance (within 10 feet) of the first 3. Thank you for any and all help! if anyone has any input on any other bones in the first pic, I would appreciate that as well
  2. 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
  3. Mammal teeth GMR

    Hi all! I'm hoping for some insight. I found two mammal teeth at GMR today and I am not 100% sure what they are. I was thinking peccary or deer. Assistance is appreciated.
  4. GMR! Here I come!

    Howdy all! I'm super excited about this and I'm looking for expertise and knowledge from all of you! I'm working in Chapel Hill, NC next week and I've paved out a day to FINALLY visit GMR!!! I'm a total noob to this area and what to expect. I've been doing research but I would humbly ask you all about your experiences, local knowledge, where to park (safely), points of entry, tools to bring (i have an good idea), areas to avoid, concerns, etc... I'm doing this alone unfortunately but that also adds to the adventure! I still haven't found my meg yet and it will be sometime before I'm able to get back out to Brownies Beach or Calvert any time soon... SO! I'm really eager to make this visit a great work out and to find some awesome treasures to share with my little boys! I wish they were old enough to come with me!
  5. GMR find

    Found this at GMR and have no clue what if anything it is. Seems like more than just a stone but maybe that’s it. Anyone have any guesses?
  6. My best find ever!!!

    Found this tooth today. It is the best fossil I have ever found!! I am ecstatic about it. I found it just laying under a pipe in GMR in Greenville, NC. Approaching 3"
  7. New to Forum

    Can anyone identify some of these? Thanks
  8. GMR tooth ID

    Found this at GMR the weekend of the Aurora festival. Could this be an Angustidens or possibly older? It’s really worn so an exact ID might not be possible but it seems the cusps would have been really prominent had they not been so worn. This was sifted from the creek bed. Is Auriculatus a possibility in this case? It was very interesting to me.
  9. My family and I took a road trip all the way from canada to try and find some shark teeth and whatever other adventures we could find. Before we hit the beach we headed to the smithsionian in washington d.c . What an amazing experience we had and could literally spends days to fully appreciate everything they had to offer. Next stop was bayfront park maryland. The weather was cold and windy and the water was ice cold, but that didn't stop us! After a few tries with the sifter we found our very first tooth, a feeling I will never forget thats for sure. After searching for 2 hours and finding many small teeth we decided to head out to our next destination Aurora. The town is small and the few people we did meet were very kind. My two kids really liked digging here as it's nice and safe with a guaranteed chance of finding teeth. I highly recommend aurora for family's and newbies looking to find teeth. The museum is really cool with awsome fossils and some good stuff to buy. Our next location bought us to the famous GMR in Greenville . Everyone I talked to said it's flooded don't waste your time but being stubborn I went anyways. Lol I was able to find a small location that allowed me to get down and do some sifting. I found some really nice teeth but the GW I really wanted didn't happen for me this trip. There was lots of broken glass and garbage in the spot I was so be careful . We hooked up with george powell jr while we were in greenville and like many people have said he truly is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He took hours showing me and my family his collection and it's just leaves you in aww. ThanKS George! I'm really thinking of getting my diving certificate for future trips! The rest of the trip is none fossil related so I will spare you all that lol but we had a blast and found the fossil community to be very warm and welcoming. Cheers
  10. Unkown Bone From Greens Mill Run

    Ive had this chunk of bone that I found in North Carolina's GMR for a while and haven't been able to come up with any ideas to what it might be from. It looks like it was sawed into two pieces at one point in time. Im not sure if its more likely to be a land animal or something marine since there is a little bit of everything in GMR. I didn't have a ruler on hand at the time of taking the photos but it is about 2 1/2" wide and about 3" long. Any help would be appreciated!

  13. Cusped benedini?

    Are these cusped benedinis? My first thought was otodus obliquus. From GMR, greeneville NC. Was found in a mix of cretaceous, miocene and pliocene teeth.
  14. GMR Trip

    This past weekend I went to the creek (GMR) in Greenville, NC. We leave the house around 8 am and get there at around 9:15 am. We get in the water, walking to the spot, testing spots in the bottom for a while till we make it to the spot at around 10. When we got there, our hole looks like it was dug out a whole lot. We were walking up, hoping there was still gravel and I spot and little meg laying there on the bottom. I see lots and lots of smaller teeth, causing me to think that a storm washed out all the gravel. We start digging, finding tons of teeth, and around 1 pm, we eat lunch and my friend @AshHendrick shows up to join the party. We dig for about 2 more hours until the hole keeps caving in and its pretty impossible to dig. We Walk downstream for a while and go to a new spot. The spots were okay for around 30 minutes, but then it caves in. That's when we started walking out when we come across and huggge gravel bar on the side of the river. We sit around there for around 45 - 60 minutes picking up some fossils. This is where I found some Native American pottery and some petrified wood. The pictures will tell the rest. Enjoy All the shark teeth. These pictures dont do them justice, the teeth are bigger and more plentiful in person my favorites 2.5 inch mako Nice goblin The great whites fish teeth enchodus with jaw? I think this is a giant barracuda, but it has some really worn serrations? some barracuda teeth This wierd blue thing Native American potterery Gator scale Shark-bitten bone Giant barnacle steinkern First petrified wood I've found. In real life this is read, these pics are not good Belemnites Whale ears fish vert ray scute The only coral I've found there I think this is a partial mammoth tooth
  15. Would appreciate some help on this one. Found at the GMR creek in Greenville nc, has peedee , yorktown and some Pleistocene stuff too, found among mako and great white teeth along with some Cretaceous shark teeth. The texture inside is interesting almost like the mastadon slivers I’ve found at gmr but not quite... maybe part of whale tooth root? Any direction is greatly appreciated, even if it is just a plain oh piece of bone, haha!
  16. Hey all I was able to go out to Greenville, NC for a quick hunt this fine morning. Heres the haul Everything 2 exogyra and a oyster? That exogyra is absolutley MASSIVE some non-shark teeth Huge and reaaaallly old sperm whale tooth root. First whale tooth fish tilly bone Fish tooth. Could someone ID? Mosasaur tooth. My first mosasaur tooth too Belemnites Shark teeth Some good ones Great whites My first meg that still has serrations Nice big crow shark Two nice Hastilis tiger shark teeth are very rare in that layer Whale bone Ear bone Was a very good day, this was a result of only around 3 hours
  17. Can anyone help me with the water levels at Greens mill run? Going to make a trip there in the next couple days and I want to make sure it’s not super high.. anyone in the area seen if the 10th street bridge is high or the park?! Please and thank you!!
  18. GMR Tomorrow?

    On my way back home to New Jersey from our road trip, I’m stopping in Greenville tonight. I am going to collect for a few hours tomorrow morning and drive the rest of the way home. Is anyone up for a few hours?
  19. Hey, all I went to GMR in Greenville yesterday. First I'll tell you yesterday was a perfect day for fossil hunting, there were lots of people there. (15+) I know I have seen at least one trip report from yesterday, so I'll keep this short and let the pictures talk. When you look at the haul, it doesn't look great, but when you consider that I only dug for 45 minutes it's pretty great. I got 2 megs, 2 great whites, 5 crows, and some others. VERY nice HUGE lower great white. I got another really nice posterior great white. The bigger one is 2.5 inches, the smaller one I didn't measure, but it's about 1 inch I would think. Look at the color on that one in the top right! The two megs Nice posterior Great white the messed up spot Hydration marks
  20. GMR, stop #2 on our road trip

    Second stop on our road trip was gmr. We arrived Thursday evening. Friday morning, we had an appointment to meet George Powell and see his collection. It was an experience we will not forget anytime soon. George was incredibly kind with his time, knowledge, and collection. It was a sight to see. The fossils wer fantastic, well organized and beautifully displayed. George regaled us with many stories, and shared his impressive and deep knowledge of the fossils he has found. I learned as much as the kids did!!! We thanked George Profusely and headed to GMR. I had never been to GMR before. We parked in the baseball field lot and headed downstream of the bridge. Explored an area from the bridge to about 300 yards down. We saw lots of already-screened gravel piles in the area. The best condition teeth we found were Cretaceous. Found some great white fragments/partials and some very worn great white pieces. And a slew of various types of teeth, almost all we found were very worn- which I understand Is the norm here? We did not see anything like what the forum trip earlier this month produced. We also found lots and lots of belemnites, and bone fragments. We really had a great time collecting here. We found many teeth, belemnites, and bone frags. This kept me and the kids very busy, and kept their interest. Because of this we weee able to spend almost 4 hours collecting. A record for me and the Boys. I may stop back here on my return drive to nj to explore a different area of the stream on my way back home. If anyone has an interest in gmr and would like to chat, please pm me. I’d really like to learn more about the geology and stratigraphy of the stream.
  21. Hi, stopping at in Greenville for a night on our way to Charleston for vacation. Looking for advice on where to park, stream access, if any part of the stream has more Cretaceous vs. Miocene etc... any tips would be much appreciated. Will be me, my two boys and our dog. Thank you.
  22. [WARNING: A lengthy read, but hopefully enjoyable] Last summer Chuck @megaholic invited me to go out with his fossil friends to dive the Meg Ledges offshore from Carolina Beach, NC. We could not make it that year as we were several time zones and about 2700 miles to the west in Cascade, ID to see the total solar eclipse as it streaked across the US on August 21, 2017. (It was well worth the cost and effort to see this impressive astronomical event. This year Chuck tried again and I was happy to be able to take him up on his offer to join his group for some meg tooth dives. Initially, I started checking for airports nearby and started hunting for inexpensive airfares. Chuck quickly pointed out that it really isn’t that far of a drive from South Florida and that he usually covers the distance in one long day of driving. The idea of driving up to North Carolina sparked the concept of an epic roadtrip with several stops along the way bookending the diving portion in the middle. The six potential diving days of the charter were fixed at the last couple of days of July and the first few of August and so with that anchoring the middle of the trip, I was able to build out from that time to lay out a fun itinerary with lots of stops along the way. I’m pretty good at composing lengthy journeys and had fun mapping this one out. My wife Tammy has been planning her retirement for some time and though her employer was successful in tempting her back for longer than she had planned on working for them, she was finally at a good stopping point with her project wrapping up. She actually based her last work day before retirement on my finalized schedule. She had her farewell lunch and said her goodbyes and was back reasonably early on a Wednesday and we had the car packed up and were heading out just after the morning rush hour died down on the following Thursday. Our first port of call on this roadtrip was north-central Florida. I had a number of specimens that I wanted to drop off in person to the Florida Museum of Natural History (FLMNH) in Gainesville. Along the way I had made plans to visit the first of many TFF members on this trip. Harry @Harry Pristis is a great authority on the types of items we pull from the rivers and creeks here in Florida and anybody who has read any forum topics about these items has undoubtedly noticed Harry’s excellent photographs of his enviable fossil specimens which are invaluable in confirming IDs. Harry also has a wonderful collection of old bottles and that is also a bit of a side passion of mine (I like hunting for all sorts of things). Harry and his wife invited us in when we arrived and we were able to indulge in one of my other favorite hobbies—talking about things which interest me. After some wonderful conversation we got a chance to marvel at some of the spectacular fossils (and other items) in Harry’s display room. The walls were covered with all sorts of interesting bottles that drew my attention equally as much as the fossils we were soon to see. Harry (as you would expect) has his items very well ordered and cataloged so it is much more like visiting a museum than a personal collection (a concept that would be repeated throughout this trip). Harry stores his fossils in custom made cabinets with shallow drawers based on the type of cabinets that shell collectors like to use. The tops are inset with nice areas to highlight some pretty things under glass. Harry has collected for many years and as such has built up a terrific assortment of enviable fossils. It was quite a treat that could easily be summed-up as “like a kid in a candy store”. There were just too many wonderful things to see it was too easy to forget I was holding a camera. I asked Harry select a couple of his favorite items for a couple of example photos. He selected an odontocete mandible (Goniodelphis cf. G. hudsoni) from the Pliocene which was recovered from the phosphate mines (when it was still possible to access them). The other stunning piece was a rhino tooth from Teloceras cf. T. hicksi (also from the mines). Truly special items to be able to see up close and personal.
  23. My wife and I headed down to Greenville this past weekend to hunt greens mill run. We had a fairly slow weekend of hunting. But we were able to find a nice great white, a couple makos, and some very nice crow shark teeth. All in all the hunting was a success, we just enjoyed being back in the creek. Now let me get into why this was the best trip we’ve ever had, by far! Forum member, George Powell, invited us to his home which he has built a 1500 sq. ft addition onto, to display his amazing collection. We arrived at about 3:30, and started the tour of us collection. George took the time to go through his entire collection with us, explaining what things were, the story behind them, and the significance behind each piece. We were completely blown away, not only by his amazing collection, but by the knowledge and experiences he holds and the time he took to share them with us. Five hours later and it was time for us to head back home. We left there with a much better understanding and love for fossil collecting. If you are a collector, (amateur or veteran) I HIGHLY recommend you check out George’s collection if you’re ever in the Greenville area. Again, thank you George for letting us tour your collection and teaching us young bucks a thing or two! Blake and Marita Here are some pics of our finds at gmr this weekend as well as some pictures at George’s.
  24. River/Stream hunting

    I'll be going to Green Mill Run this Sunday, I was wondering what I should where. If your unfamiliar with GMR it's like a small stream( I think)
  25. Forum Trip To GMR

    This Sunday, August 5th I am planning a forum trip to GMR in Greenville North Carolina. Any and all members are welcome. Of course, with all the recent rain, this is weather contingent. Hopefully the rain will be minimal the next few days as forecast. If so the water should be at a collectible level by Sunday. This is being done in honor of esteemed member digit(Ken) who is currently visiting our amazingly lovely state. As of right now, the plan is to meet at 9 am. Most likely at Greensprings Park on 5th Street. If you are interested in going, please add to this thread so I can make sure I contact everyone Saturday with final plans.
