  1. 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!
  2. Our trip to GMR

    So we finally made it out to GMR to do some hunting. We left Greensboro about 7 am and arrived around 9:15. We walked around for a little bit to scout some areas, and finally found a good starting point. It was slow at first, but we started making really good progress when I found a 2" goblin shark tooth. We continued on throughout most of the day finding tooth, after tooth, after tooth... We found several Meg fragments, some super nice great whites, mako's, 3 mosasaur teeth (the smaller round one might possibly be a crocodile but were not 100% sure), and quite a few belimnites. After we finished for the day we stopped by @powelli1's house so he could check out some of our finds. He's a great guy and has an absolutely amazing fossil collection. When I say he has 15,000 fossils in one room, I'm not exaggerating whatsoever... He helped confirm the ID's of some of our finds, and was kind enough to give us a tour of his collection in the process. After heading home we decided to photograph some of the nicer finds and count everything we brought back. All together we had 944 shark teeth, 3 mosasaur (except if that smaller round one is not a mosasaur tooth), 1 unidentified fish tooth, and 59 belimnites. Here's some photos of everything we found today.
  3. Greens Mill Run, NC Fish Bone/Vert ID

    This was found a while back by a friend I was hunting with, busting open some rocks in the creek - nothing else was really in the rock but it was found with the usual GMR items washed into a gravel bed. There is a small vert attached to it but I am interested in possibly identifying WHAT bone that is attached to the vert and maybe even narrow it down to a type of fish (I assume it's fish). The bone attached reminds me of those tilly fish bones in texture/appearance. Any connection? 1- LOCATION Greenville, NC Greens mill Run. (Green Mill Run) 2- GEOLOGY/Formation Generally this location is part of the york town formation, Miocene-Pliocene-cretaceous 4- ASSEMBLAGE Shark teeth (mostly makkos, tiger near by) Belemnites and whale bone.
  4. Found two things at different times a while back in the creek that I am in need of direction on trying to ID. I find horse teeth some at GMR but am hesitant to assume that's what either is - not just because of the small size but because the patterns are a bit different from the horse teeth I've found - though none 100% complete for me to say that is more than an armatures eye. Any assistance to ID this would be greatly appreciated! I copied the main concerns from FAQs on posting here, so hopefully I was able to provide enough detail for some assistance. 1- LOCATION Greenville, NC Greens mill Run. (Green Mill Run) 2- GEOLOGY/Formation Generally this location is part of the york town formation, Miocene-Pliocene-cretaceous 4- ASSEMBLAGE Shark teeth (mostly goblin, crow, makkos, tiger near by) Belemnites and whale bone. Items are shown next to th e inch side of a ruler. 1. 2. The other tooth
  5. Hello, I thought I'd share a little bit about my first fossil collecting trip to Greens Mill Run creek, Greenville, NC. As you can see from the pictures, the highlight of the day was this good sized great white tooth, Carcharodon carcharias (correct me if I'm wrong on the ID)! I found it within the first 15 minutes of searching, in about the 5th shovel of material into the screen! Talk about motivation to keep looking! The rest of the search didn't turn up anything nearly as exciting but it was still a fun trip and I found lots of small teeth. Most were fragmented and so I only kept a handful of them. I also saw a lot of fossil bone fragments but nothing I felt was worth holding on too. I know there is more to be found in Greens Mill Run so I look forward to going back soon! On another note, my fossil adventure was almost cut short before it began after I came within a few inches of stepping on a copperhead snake as I was walking towards the creek! I don't have a huge fear of snakes but coming so close to a venomous one with my ankles and lower leg exposed was pretty scary! Luckily it didn't strike!
  6. 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.
  7. Boney Fish piece from GMR

    I found this in North Carolina, I think near Greenville, NC. Greens Mill Run many moons ago. I have seen this online before, but can't remember what it is? It's part of a fish, but that's all I can gather. Thanks, David
  8. Here are a couple of things TFF member Daleksec found this past weekend at Greens Mill Run, that we need help identifying. The first appears to be a small tooth. I apologize for no scale but it is 3/8" long with ridges and slightly curved. I did not see any serrations. The second is s small bone about 3/4" long, slightly convex or concave on the long axis, depending on which way is up. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Jack
  9. A HOT Weekend in GMR!

    The Plan: A small group was planning to go fossil hunting on a certain NC river for my birthday weekend this past Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Unfortunately, we knew the rivers had been running high, some hadn't crested yet and by Tuesday we gave up hope on a boat ride along the river to one of our favorite places. The (Modified) Trip: Given we all already had the 3 day weekend off (and it was still my birthday weekend) we adjusted our plans, a few folks dropped out, and five buddies, my wife and I instead made the trek southeast for some fossil hunting in Greens Mill Run. Included in the group was TFF member Daleksec. Talk about a HOT weekend, in more ways than one. Yes, the temps were in the mid to upper 90s, humidity was above 70%, the heat index on Friday was around 105 and Sunday was around 110, but we are all experienced fossil hunters and used to summer time in the Mid-Atlantic. Of the 7 of us, we had 3 different places along GMR where 1 or 2 of us had collected successfully, so we made a plan to hit all 3 spots over the 3 days. Turns out, 1 in the group has hunted GMR for over 25 years with considerable success, which he failed to mention until we all got there. :-) He inevitably became "The Guide." Of the 7 of us, there were at least 10 different methods to successfully find fossils this weekend. Now, you have to get a real feel for this group, no pun goes unintended, no innuendo or double entendre goes unchallenged and nothing obvious is really that obvious, without complete clarification and confirmation of the clarification. To say that we had a blast would be an understatement. I'm positive that everyone had sore stomach muscles at some point in the trip from laughing so hard. There were quite a few instances where the raucous laughter actually interrupted the fossil hunting so a person could regain their breath and composure. I will say, at least we didn't get accosted by Pokemon Go players this trip, like we did on our last trip to GMR. :-) The Spoils of the Screen: We started out after lunch Friday by picking 1 of 3 spots we wanted to try and "moving in." Anyone who saw us heading to the creek would have just shaken their heads. Here is part of the group getting going. For the record, the chair is mine. Here is a small tooth my wife screened, which will end up being a give-a-way since she wanted more than a 3/4" tooth for her efforts on this hot/humid day. (For scale, screen size is 1/4"). At least we didn't get skunked and it broke the ice. This 1" tooth made her a little happier and gave her the energy to keep digging. (Screen size is 1/4") One of my buddies from MD who volunteers in the fossil section of a large, famous museum in DC, has a unique method for fossil hunting at GMR. He sits down and basically "noodles" under rocks, in holes, in the mud, etc. for whatever he can find. Here is a photo of him "staying cool" while hunting. Apparently, his method works fairly well because he came away with this awesome vertebrae. Another close up view sitting in the screen. After the excitement of his very nice find we took a break, which involved much story telling, chiding and laughter. More to come..........
