  3. rapp creek hunting

    Too cold and rainy to fish (no speckled trout yet for me, just out of season rockfish, huge cow nosed rays, and stiffback perch). So went tooth hunting. Unfortunately the kids(?) had dug a giant hole in one of my favored spots, so I ended up hunting one of the kids' favored spots. A hard grayish blue clay area which is usually too hard and unproductive for me, but when walking past I saw a black shiny object glinting in the sun; looking closer I noticed a fine serrated edge and digging around it soon discovered just a shard from a megalodon (which I had never noticed in the creek before). Very disappointed of course that it wasn't whole, but the clay was softer than usual with all the rain so I was able to dig into the bank and did pretty well. Several hemi teetch and pieces (lots of busted stuff here) plus a few makos and lots of teeth that are not the usual sand tiger spikes. Not sure what they all are, but usually these are in the minority, today they were the main things I was finding. Generally these teeth were fewer than what i find in the sand and gravel, but bigger and heavier. The kids must have found some nice stuff here. A layer of giant tree oysters below and mostly scallops (pectans) above, some in better shape than the teeth. Having some issues with my scanner, but will post some of my more "normal" finds from last week as well if I can get the scanner going.
  4. Hello, I have another tooth from my collection that I am not sure about. For me it first looked like a very clear case. The shape of the tooth clearly indicates the snaggletooth shark (Hemipristis elongata). I was 100% certain with the ID, the teeth are almost unmistakable. The only flaw: The tooth was found on the coastline of the Atlantic between Florida and Virginia (unfortunately I don't know the exact location). Over 10.000km far from the distribution area of this shark. My question to you: is my ID correct? And if so, how can something like this happen? I hope you can help me. The tooth measures 15mm in leght. Best regards from Germany and stay healthy in this time!
  5. Hemipristis serra (Agassiz 1843)

    From the album Pisces

    12mm. Burdigalian OMM Miocene Found at Billafingen, B.-W.
  6. I took another bike ride up to my favorite shark tooth site today and spent a couple of hours scratching at the outcrop with my trusty Swiss Army knife. Didn't do bad at all this time around and was particularly happy to have found my first Hemipristis serra tooth Hemipristis serra 12mm. Carcharias acutissima 15 & 25mm. Sea bream Sparus cinctus. The largest single tooth has a diameter of 7mm. and the partial plate is 16mm. long. Anybody have an idea what the following 2 teeth might be?
  7. We know that fossils are not the priority for people at the moment. They are not for us either but I have found a good amount of stress relief in going through a large donation we got. The material is all from STH and we have enough to make a trade. It was part of the donation actually. Extra fossils for sale or for trade to improve our collection. I would like to avoid sales or doing smaller trades just for shipping reasons so I decided to put the trade stuff out as one lot. Given the current state of the world, consider this a post corona virus trade offer. We would probably not ship for 2-4 weeks if not a bit longer so we would not expect immediate shipping. Nobody needs to risk a trip to the post office. I did however want to put it out there. I think a little engagement among fossil nerds may be a good thing at this time We tried to put together a pretty decent representation of the shark and ray fauna plus a variety of colors. Miocene Temblor Formation, Round Mountain Silt Member Kern County, California Carcharodon hastalis- 8 teeth, variety of positions, variety of colors, none bigger than 1.5" Cosmopolitodus planus- 8 teeth, upper and lower, beautiful color array Isurus desori- 1 tooth Hemiprisitis serra- 1 symphyseal tooth Hexanchus andersonii- one partial tooth (I think upper) Heterodontus- 1 lateral tooth Physogaleus- 4 teeth Galeocerdo- 3 teeth Carcharhinus- 3 teeth Squatina Squalus Galeorhinus Included but not pictured- a couple of Cetorhinus teeth and a Mustelus tooth. Various Batoid fossils. We are open to any shark tooth offers but we do have some specific needs/wants. I listed them below. GW teeth Squaliformes- any family except Squalus Orectolobiformes- Hemiscyllium, Rhincodon, Ginglymostoma (Eocene & Cretaceous) Otodus sokolovi Isurus oxyrinchus and retroflexus some specific Cretaceous material- Cardabiodontid, Squatina, Ginglymostoma, Cretorectolobus, Odontaspis, Cantioscyllium, Cretoxyrhina PM us if you have any questions, need to see additional pictures, or want to make an offer.
  8. Teeth from the priabonian of dakhla morocco

    Hi guys I was in a rush but can take better pics at a later time, so far my tentative IDs are hemipristis Serra and isurus praecursor for right and left of 1st pic but no idea on the others (maybe galeocerdo In the middle though) those id’s were all of the top of my head so no real idea
  9. Hemipristis or Prionace tooth?

    Hello, I saw this tooth for sale on the Internet. Unfortunately the photo was very bad, so I tried to creat a vector graphic. I'm not sure if the tooth belongs to a hemipristis or a blue shark. Can you help me with this? The tooth measures a little over 1cm to the tip and was found in Indonesia (Pacific ocean). Best regards from Germany!
  10. Multiple Hunts this week

    I get out hunting as often as I am able. In addition to the fossil finds, I am at a point in life where exercise has great value and fossil hunting the Peace River watershed 3 times a week does get the muscles moving and the blood flowing. Add the great feeling with getting out into nature which I share with numerous animals of all types and this is just about a perfect hobby, BUT, not always a successful one. I think that I, over the long run, find one impressive fossil a week... What about this week? A lot of folks are saying that the Peace River water depth is dropping and this is open for success in fossil hunting. Last Sunday, I went to one of my favorite locations that have been very successful for me in the past, as recently as last spring. I usually kayak to to/from this location for an hour each way and hunt shovel and sieve for 5-6 hours --- good exercise. The Peace River is still high. Right this minute , the USGS gauge at Zolfo Springs is over 7 feet. That is un_diggable, except in isolated spots. You need to cling close to the banks and the currents are fast. !!!! I found a couple of chipped Equus teeth, turtle shell and spurs, 120 small teeth 70 % broken. Largest of the small shark teeth were 3 30-40 mm hemipristis (2 lowers and an upper). I did enjoy the day, sunny, cold out in nature. So , Monday was my 2nd day out to the Peace River this week.. Somewhat better, with 2 frequent fossils hunting friends, staying close digging in a 2 foot layer that had been uncovered by the heavy summer currents. They found it and invited me to partake. Not a show stopper , but some good fossils. I tend to remove (and donate) broken and small shark teeth from my "finds" photo. So the finds from a home to home 12 hour hunt. Some osteoderms, barracuda teeth, a few larger Lemon and Hemipristis teeth, a broken tapir, broken llama incisor, Thresher tooth (relatively rare). and then some closeup photos below. I liked this last hemi best and another sun_shiny day in paradise
  11. Powered by Hemi

    Some Hemis through the years I picked up online, from forum members and even found personally. Enjoy Aurora,n.c.
  12. Nice Mako and lower Hemi.

    Today I found the first complete Mako in a few months and I found my biggest lower Hemipristis. I also found a lot of bone today and 2 fish vertebrae. All of these where found near Beaufort SC.

  17. Hop 5 03/30/19

    1. Hemipristis serra: One of my first teeth of the day, found in the water. Small, but nice colors and perfect serrations. 2. Carcharias cuspidata: Flawless sand tiger. Symmetrical and super sharp, with both double cusplets intact. 3. Galeocerdo aduncus: Gorgeous tiger, almost looks like a G. cuvier because of size. Very nice root to crown contrast. 4. Odontocete tooth: Little porpoise/dolphin tooth with a long, thick root. In very good condition. 5. Ecphora sp.: A very nice small Ecphora, nearly complete, just missing the white part at the top. Rare to find more than a fragment of these at Brownies. Cast your votes! The poll will end in three days, on April 4th at 3:00 p. m. EST. Hoppe hunting!
  18. Hop 5 03/02/19

    1. Isurus desori: Awesome Mako, just shy of two inches. One of my largest teeth from Bayfront Park. Found within 10 or 15 minutes of stepping foot on the beach. 2. Notorynchus primigenius: Very nice cow shark tooth. Small ding on the first cusp, but mostly complete and a decent size. 3. Cetacean Vertebra: My first whale vert! This lumbar vertebra was completely buried in the sand, with only the very top exposed. 4. Hemipristis serra: Really cool snaggletooth with nice colors and perfect serrations. Could be either an upper or lower, hard to tell. Most likely upper. 5. Cetacean Vertebra: Another whale vert! This one is an atlas vert, and like the first was found almost completely buried. Very much intact, maybe even museum quality. Please cast your vote! The poll ends at 1:00 p.m. EST. Also, if you haven't already, be sure to check out my YouTube video so you can see these fossils as they were found! The link to the video is in my most recent trip report, titled "Bayfront Park 03/02/19: First YouTube Video"
  19. Rapp beach hunting

    Headed to the beach hoping the weatherman was right and could get to the edge of the shells piled at the shoreline just out of reach. The wind was predicted from the SW, but was calm then switched to the NE, and the tide stopped falling. The temperature stayed about 5 degrees lower than predicted as well. Couldn't get to the line of shells where I expected the bigger teeth should be, but with the wind causing a slow wash, teeth started appearing and I got a good variety, colorful and in good shape, though no big ones (and no cowshark, think I lost one in the wash). Will post the whale vertebra tomorrow after it dries. Weather is supposed to be warm tomorrow, may try another beach.

  23. Hemipristis serra

    This is by far the largest Hemipristis I have ever collected. At 1.81 inches wide, it is wider than the next longest one in my collection.
  24. Huge hemipristis?

    From what I have seen of other hemi teeth, they generally aren't much bigger than 2". But this really looks like those, only much bigger. Any ideas?
