  1. Strange Aurora Skull Fragment?

    Found in a bag of matrix purchased from the Aurora Fossil Museum. I'm not sure what I'm looking at-- perhaps a skull fragment? Hard to photograph, but I tried my best! Any help would be appreciated!
  2. Aurora/Lee Creek spoils piles?

    I have read a few posts where there is mention of Lee Creek mine spoils piles presumably unrelated to the ones at the Aurora fossil museum. How does one find these, are they open to the public, and do they contain similar fossils to the ones found at the museum? Also, I have noticed that whenever I talk to the folks at the museum about when they expect to get "fresh dirt" from the mine, they are very non-committal about when of if they will even get any... I'd like to make my investment in travel to the area worthwhile. Some of my trips there, the spoils pile was very picked over. Tips, tricks and suggestions much appreciated.
  3. Hi everyone, I was looking online to see if definitive remains of Squalodon have been found in sediments from the Lee Creek mine in Aurora. What I found from older posts on the forum is that similar looking teeth have been found but belong to different toothed whale species. Also fossilguy.com shows several teeth which are labeled as Squalodon. I was interested in learning more about this as a Squalodon tooth is definitely on my bucket list and I plan on revisiting the spoil piles at Aurora within the next few years.
  4. ID Lee Creek shark tooth

    My best guess is G.aduncus. I realize most of the serrations are broken off, but the uninterrupted curvature of the main part of the tooth does not match my other examples of G.aduncus or G.cuvier.
  5. ID symphyseal (? ) tooth

    I overlooked this one a few times because it is so small. Appears to be a symphyseal tooth. Lee Creek spoils pile find. Any guesses as to species?
  6. Unknown tooth

    Hi everyone, I’m new here and this is my first ID question post! I’ve found two of these in my searches, but this is the more interesting of the two with its lovely core. Pulled it out of a literal gravel pile near New Bern, NC. Thanks for the help! Frank
  7. Lee Creek shark tooth ID

    Lee Creek NC spoils pile find. I suspect it is a juvenile C. megalodon upper-posterior, but the asymmetry is throwing me off. Am I on the right track or way off?
  8. Lee Creek ID and pathological?

    Please ID this tooth found in a Lee Creek spoils pile and is it pathological?
  9. Which Lee Creek Carcharocles Sp.?

    I found these in a Lee Creek spoils pile. Which ID is correct? (juvenile?) C. megalodon on the left, C. chubutensis on the right? Both C. chubutensis?
  10. Lee Creek A. superciliosus?

    Can anyone confirm that this tooth is A. superciliosus? Found in Lee Creek spoils pile, North Carolina
  11. Saturday at Aurora

    I had a pretty great day at Aurora yesterday. This was my third time there ever, and I managed to convince my boyfriend, father, and uncle (none of whom are as fascinated with fossils as I am) to tag along. I mostly stayed at the pile with my boyfriend, and was a bit bummed out because it seemed like everybody but me was finding decent sized megs and chubutensis left and right! I did find a nice snaggletooth though, and bought a few buckets to take home since we had to leave earlier than I expected. I'm so glad I did, because in the first bucket I found a pretty big meg tooth fragment. I also found a few more dolphin teeth and a nice cow shark tooth. I always seem to find the things I want to find, for the most part, because I remember remarking to everybody in the car that I wanted a few more dolphin teeth and at least one half decent cow shark tooth since the only other one I had came from Purse back in Maryland.
  12. Curved Aurora teeth

    I found this trio of strange teeth in a bucket of Lee Creek fossil matrix. All 3 are slightly less than one inch in length and seem vaguely cetacean or reptilian. Of course, they could be claws instead of teeth. There are several other mystery fossils I found, but for some reason only 2 photos can be uploaded at a time, so I'll have to make a separate post for each fossil.
  13. Mystery items from LC: Marine mammal?

    Here are a pair of head-scratchers that I found i at LC. The first is from the Pungo River Fm I thought was a bivalve steinkern, but it is not carbonate, which one would expect in the lime layers of the formation (that, or phosphate, and itisnt phosphate). There is still some matrix on it. So that leaves me with maybe some portion of the bulla/ear region of a marine mammal, but that's purely a guess. The second is from the Pliocene Yorktown Fm, and the material appears to be the same as that of cetacean tympanic bulla. But it doesn't look like one, or like anything Ive seen from a cetacean. Any ideas? thanks
  14. Cetacean? teeth from the Yorktown

    hi all, Here are three teeth from the Pliocene Yorktown at LC. When found, I was told "pilot whale", which hasn't helped much. I do believe that they are from a tooth cetacean though. Could anyone hazard a guess as to genus/species? thanks in advance
  15. 26th Annual Aurora Fossil Festival

    Well everyone, it's that time of year again. It is almost time the the Aurora Fossil Festival. I know many Forum members have attended in the past and I hope many more will show this year. Lots of fun and you get to search the world famous piles at the museum! Several of our local members will be displaying fossils in the community center as well. Hope to see as many of you there as possible. Saturday May 25th. http://aurorafossilfestival.net/
  16. Would it hypothetically be possible to buy land near the phosphate mine in Aurora and rent a backhoe and eventually get down to the formation? How deep is the formation? Thanks, Tyler
  17. I found this piece while looking through some matrix from aurora N.C. It appears to be scales of some sort. Any Ideas?
  18. One of my nice Lee creek mako teeth were sitting in one of my pockets with a few Hershey's chocolates with paper wrappers (don't ask why I was pretty hungry). after I ate them all, I looked at my tooth, and to my dismay saw that what looked like the ink from the wrappers had rubbed onto the root. Aside from the weird story, I have tried using a toothbrush with soap and water, to no avail. What would be the best way to get rid of the stain? I have attached before and after pics below. I know there are a few lighting differences, so I also put it aside one of my other lee creek makos that used to be a similar color as a reference to the darkness of the stain. Thanks.
  19. Lee Creek unknown

    I recently bought some Lee Creek spoils matrix from @PaleoRon & have been digging through it here & there. This morning among the usual teeth, mouth plates & vertebrae I found this. No idea what it is. Sort of small.. 4 mm x 5 mm in size with one side covered with rings. Any ideas? The backside is just lumpy more than anything.
  20. I am offering up some Lee Creek micro matrix up for trade. I looking to trade mainly for other micro matrix, nothing that can only be sorted with a microscope please. I will entertain other offers as well. Adam
  21. Coral or shell?

    I bought a "little" package of Lee Creek matrix from @PaleoRon recently. It came in yesterday & I started digging. Lots of teeth & vertebrae so far & I'm barely into it. I found this one thing I'm not sure what it is, but it looks cool. 11 mm in length x 6 mm wide & stuck to a rock. Pics are at 55x magnification showing top, both ends (sort of) & both sides (sort of). Wasn't easy to get some of the pics, but here they are. Not sure if its a coral or shell or just some ordinary oddity.
  22. I win a nice Supply complete Creek Phosphate Mine Matrix as a door prize at our fossil club meeting last night. It's a rainy cold day so I decided to go ahead and start searching The Matrix. Probably a little less than a third of the way through the Matrix here's what I found so far.
  23. My Aurora Pile

    Hey everyone! About 2 weeks ago, the VERY generous @AshHendrick gave a portion of his Aurora pile, straight from the mine! I put it around a wood frame in my yard, and have hunted it for hours almost every day. This will be an ongoing thread, I will prob not update every day, but at least weekly. This is the pile. It's bigger than it looks in this pic (about 5.5 x 5.5 feet [a little less than 2 meters i think]) What I do is I sift into the bucket, so I don't go through it twice. I dump it somewhere else. Day 1 Coral Fish vert I think this is coprolite, but I'm not sure Turtle shell Cool rock with turritella another turritella Big steinkern Sorry about the blurry pic, the only one I took of the ray teeth The shark teeth Find of the day shark tooth in matrix the shells. Appreciate ID's That's day 1. more coming
  24. So I had bought from a certain online auction site some Lee Creek mine microfossil matrix a while back... I finally got around to looking over a little bit of it this evening. Attached are what I have found so far without any magnification.
  25. Aurora

    I dug in the Pits of Pungo out front of the Aurora Fossil Museum for a few hours. Heres the haul. The shark teeth Phosphate nodules Coral Sea life burrows. Posterior lemons and coppers These teeth are sooo small I don't even know why I picked them up Bryazoa...? My favorites Some of those famous Aurora makos ( isurus oxyrinchus I think) What I think are posterior isurus oxyrinchus's though the one in the middle one looks like it has a burlette? meg? I would appreciate any feedback on these Two nice Hemipritis Double cusped carcharhinus taurus? Alligator claw core? Bird? Sea urchin spines ray teeth Fish/shark verts and partials. I would appreciate if someone s=told me the difference two of them stuck together Bone frags whale verts and frags Shells Can someone help ID them? I can't seem to find any papers or websites I also spent all my birthday money on their little gift shop. Heres what I got from there. I would be happy for any IDs for them. (I like things labeled) Dont know where from St. Claire. PA fern. What is the age and formation of this locale? Morrocan trilobite pyrite amethyst this is definitely my longest post even though its just pictures mostly
