  1. Non-shark Tooth ID please

    I found this yesterday at Westmoreland State Park in Virginia, which I think is Miocene stuff. Can anyone ID?
  2. Insect Plant Fish or ...?

    Greetings, everyone. I spent the other day on the east side of Ventura County breaking open sedimentary rocks. I'm not experienced enough with that sort of material to positively ID it but I think it was siltstone. There was a leaf and something else on both sides of one of the rocks. I've been having a hard time figuring out what the "something else" is. It measures about 35 by 14 millimeters. I took a few pictures of both sides under different lighting conditions to help bring out some of the finer details. It comes from the Modelo Formation (Miocene). Thanks ahead of time for any help in figuring out what it is. Here are pictures of the first side: Some pictures of the second side:
  3. Hi, I've collected this fossil on a beach near Balchik in Bulgaria and have wandered what it is. On the same beach I've also found small parts of bones and a partial vertebrae. Since there have been previous finds from Deinotherium bavaricum , Trilophodon angus-tidens and Choerolophodon pentelici in the region I was pretty exited that I've found a part of a tusk or one from a baby, but I am really not sure what exactly the fossil is. Please if you have any good guesses for the origin of the fossil please let me know.
  4. crocodile tooth?

    I find a lot of broken teeth, but this one is reasonably intact. Almost an inch long, almost four-sided with two flatter sides, root rectangular with circular hole in center, enamel dull extending almost half-way from the (broken) tip. (cell phone and scanner didn't help much).
  5. rapp creek hunting

    Went out to my usual creek which had dried up. Too difficult to strain out the sand, mud, black leaves, and muggy and buggy. Decided to try a deeper creek, and while not as promising, it was pleasant standing in running water watching frogs, salamanders, tiny shrimp and crayfish in my strainer. Not much, one small mako/ great white. It was nice to find an angel shark tooth, which I had missed recently. Used to be the second most common behind sand tiger shark teeth.
  6. Greetings fellow fossil enthusiasts! I don't know what this thing is. I've shown it to several other fossil guys in Houston and they don't know what it is either. I think it's from a fish of some sort, other than that I have no idea. I found it in Hogtown Creek in Gainesville so it's probably Late Miocene-Pliocene. Scale bar is in Millimeters. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  7. Hi All I've really been enjoying getting out and about here in New Zealand and hunting for fossils and taking some video footage at the same time. I'm still a beginner and find that by posting the videos I get some good info from the more experienced people across the world. If anyone is interested, I have posted my latest video up here: 013 Beach hunt for Miocene fossils I'm on instagram as well: @mamlambo_nz and would really like to follow any other TFF users, so please add me so I can follow you
  8. rapp creek hunting

    Ben away for a while, so wanted to get out. No signs of kids having been "at work". Guess too hot or not worth their effort. Spent three hours hunting, lots of gravel (few verts, drum teeth and only one broken angel shark tooth). Did get a cowshark, tiger and hemi tooth (rare at that site), two tiny mako/ great white teeth, the usual sand tiger spikes, skate teeth, and some triagular bull or similar shark teeth. A few interesting tiny shell and concretion pieces. Guessing crab but could it be shrimp @Carl ?
  9. Shark Week on the Discovery Channel starts tonight and one of the shows is about C. megalodon. It's on at 8pm Eastern and Pacific time.
  10. 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
  11. Part of a segmented fossil?

    Greetings! I found this fossil on Sunday in Bradenton, Fl (Manatee County) It is 1.5”/38 mm long, 1.5” wide and .5” thick. It appears to be broken on 3 edges. I tried to photograph it on white background but some pics where I am holding it turned out sharper. Some of the things I found nearby were horse teeth, chunks of meg teeth, tiger shark and hemipristis teeth and the most massive Florida horse conch and mollusks I’ve ever seen. I’ve been trying to learn the age and specific formations that I hunt in but it’s been confusing to me. Is it possible that I’m in the peace river formation if I’m 40 miles west of the actual river? Or would it most likely be the Arcadia formation, or even bone valley? Some overlap so how do you tell? I think I am mostly in Miocene- Pliocene. Getting a bit off topic but if anyone can shed light on my mystery find and possibly clarify on formation locations I enjoy this forum so very much. Thank you all members. Best, Marie
  12. 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!

    17mm. Burdigalian OMM-Formation Miocene Found at Billafingen, Baden-Wuerttemberg
  14. Just thought I'd share this post from our Facebook Group. Had a blast sharing some of my shark fossils with visitors this last Saturday. If you can contribute and give back to your community and society in general I promise that you'll find the experience rewarding and enriching. Pass on your knowledge to the next generation and get them exited about the sciences and paleontology.
  15. My wife and I took a trip fown to Maryland late last week for a little calvert formation hunting at Bayfront park. As i mentioned on another post we got to the beach at quarter to 7am and had the place to ourselves for a while. Nobody was there to collect our access fee so we walked down to the beach just after low tide. One set of footprints were just above the surf line but i never did see who made them as nobody passed us either direction all day. We both found a couple of small teeth on our walk from the enterance to the corner that juts ou. My wife decided to stay in yhe corner and screen while i walked further south. For me it was a very slow pick of small shark teeth and a small cetacean tooth by the time I returned. My wife found a small cetacean vert where she set up to screen. More smalls than i remember from my last trip, or maybe we were just better at spotting them. She found her first Squatina subserrata tooth. Here's our finds, scale on the right is in inches: Close up of some of the smalls, these are under a quarter of an inch and we were lucky they stayed in our screens (and that we saw them): Makes me think I should try a multi layered sifter stack just to see how much micro material is falling through.
  16. Tiny shark tooth

    This past weekend we stopped in for a few hours at Matoaka cabins on the way home from St. Mary's City (a cool non-fossil historical destination). We found several readily identifiable small teeth and ray plates as well as a few drum teeth and a handful of shells. My guess with this tooth is a posterior cow shark tooth or Carcharhinus? Measuring tape is inches on top and metric on bottom. Thanks, Adam

  18. Tumidocarcinus giganteus

    From the album Crustaceans

    Tumidocarcinus giganteus crab from the New Zealand Miocene. These crabs are incredibely difficult to prepare. This one required roughly 20 hours to prepare. The carapace nor the overall exoskeleton preserved well as there are a lot of cracks but the orange, pinkish hue is a bit unique considering most of these crabs have a dark brown exoskeleton. This crab is roughly 8.5 inches in diameter from tip to tip (legs).

  22. Mammal (marine) Earbone

    Found very little yesterday. This is somewhat unique as are all earbones. Found in a Bone Valley area with no Pleistocene material but with pre_equus horse teeth. At first, I thought "baleen whale", but it is too small. Asking @Harry Pristis and @Boesse to evaluate, but encourage all comments and suggestions. Jack
  23. rapp creek hunting

    Needed to get out and get some exercise. Relatively cool and dark in the morning, the full foliage shade was nice, surprisingly little water in the creek. I worked one spot hard, found a few partial ecphora, lots of sand tiger teeth, a few angel and drum teeth. A bonito nose a Tilly bone and what probably was once a bonito nose. One three pointed cowshark tooth which I lost when I fell. The highlight was a nice hemipristis (don't find many of those or tiger or mako in this site. And no megs). Bits and pieces drying to go through later.
  24. Darktooth Family Trip

    My family and I have been in Maryland since Thursday evening. The past two days have involved alot of walking and intense heat. My calves and feet are sore and I have got a good sunburn. Friday morning we met up with forum member @RCW3D and his daughter. He took us out to a Miocene exposure along the Potomac River. We started our hunt a little before 10am and I think we got finished around 2pm. We all managed to find some goodies. RCW3D'S whale vert and articulated marlin verts definitely were the prize of the day. But I was happy with what I found though nothing as exciting. I found an assortment of sharkteeth, a nice shark vert, a decent size fish vert and misc bone pieces. Devin did pretty good himself scoring a beautifully colored snaggletooth, a drumfish plate ( which he misplaced) a fish jaw minus the teeth, a nice shark vert, and some other goodies. My wife and older son found a few teeth but weren't really hunting. RCW3D helped my kids out by pointing out where teeth were by drawing a circle around them and sometimes just handing them stuff. We had a really great time and appreciate the time he spent with us. After we left, we grabbed some lunch and headed over to Mataoka cottages so the boys could swim and I wanted to do a little shell hunt. We stayed a couple hours found a few shells and sharkteeth and went for a late dinner. Today my wife wanted to go into Washinton DC, visit the monuments and a couple museums. I won't bore you with all the details. Basically a whole lot of walking in scorching heat. Anyways we are headed back home in tomorrow morning. A short trip but it was a good one. Here are some pics. #1- My finds
