  1. Megalodon tooth

    From the album Fossil Collection

  2. Brownies riker

    I could be doing other things, but it’s the first weekday off school, and I wanted to do something Fossil related. So, I took some of the my favorite self-collected brownies teeth and put them into a riker. The riker originally held a composite Carcharodontosaurus, which meant a lot of empty space, so I moved it into storage until I can get a better case for it. So what do you guys think? key: Top row-Hemis, including a patho, a white one, and a lighting struck one middle group: Cows, all Bluntnose sevengill (Notorynchus Primigenus/cepedianus) , including my symphyseal. bottom left: Carcharodon hastilis teeth bottome right: Fragalodons last picture is one inch scale.
  3. I’ve been looking through Miocene matrix from France from two sites lately. I’m posting a few pictures of what I have been finding. Note the gem jars are 1.75 inches in diameter for size reference. Site 1 I have not found many fossils in the matrix from this site. However, I did find lower teeth from two species that I don’t find on the East Coast of the United States where I usually collect. What I found in total: Centrophorus aff. granulosus 3 mm X 3 mm Deania aff. calceus 2 mm X 1.5 mm Site 2 I found many more specimens in the matrix from this site. Cookie Cutter (Isistius) teeth are very common in the matrix although most specimens are missing the roots. Cookie Cutter (Isistius triangulus ) specimens: The rest of what I found: Marco Sr.
  4. French Miocene shells

    Hi all, Here are 11 different shells, bivalves and gastropods, that I would like to be able to ID down to species level. I got them in a little bag full of these little shells, . I have a decent idea of the genus of most, but I'm lost as to when it comes to species. The shells are all from Ferriere-Larcon, Loire, France. It says on the label that they are from the "Falun de Pontelivien" ("falun" translates to "shelly", as in "shelly layer", referring to the main components of the layer: fossil shells), and that they are from the Serravallian stage of the Miocene (approx 12 mya). These are just 11 of the different species, from about an estimate of 40 different ones. These are the ones I am most interested in IDing for now. But, if you maybe have a document or so with a list or plates of all the possible species from this location/formation, that would be even better! In case better pictures are needed, let me know. Thanks in advance for the help, Max #1: Cardita sp (species... ?)
  5. A half of a crab...

    From the album Dretsend's findings

    One half of a crab, found by chance when I hit a rock picked from a brick factory debris...that day the truck driver led me to the quarry where I found most of the things I'll post.
  6. Went out hoping recent rains would have washed out some teeth. Mostly washed away the angel teeth and drum esophageal teeth I've been finding (a few of each). Usual sand shark spikes and more vertebrae than usual (gravelly?) Finally found a weird pinkish white banded mako, or rather great white, slant length 2". Seemed a good time to quit.
  7. Finds From Flag Ponds

    Hi everyone, Newbie fossil hunter here. I visited Flag Ponds Nature Park yesterday (June 10, 2018) and came up with some finds that I am having a difficult time identifying. The park is on the west side of the Chesapeake bay near cliff formations from the Miocene epoch. All of these fossils were found in/along the water. Most interesting to me is a small pointed black fossil with deep crevices. I've never come across any like it and I haven't been able to find anything at all online to even give me a hint as to what it may be. The other bone fragments I found seem to come from flat bones, which suggest to me that they might be part of ribs or jaws. My best guess for the larger chunky bone in my pictures is that it might be part of an epiphysis, perhaps also from a rib. Another little find was a portion of something that looks like a tooth, but perhaps not a shark tooth. I also picked up a portion of what would have been a nice sized shark tooth, but I'm just not sure what kind of shark. Finally, I also found a couple of small white disks and am not sure what those are. I wanted to share these finds with you to see what you think they are! More detailed pictures to follow. Any help is much appreciated!
  8. Greetings! Before I mess this thing up, I wanted to ask what I should do with this piece from Calvert Cliffs, MD (Miocene). It is about 13 by 9 inches and is pretty thick, about 22 pounds so I have no idea how much bone is actualy in there. When I found it, it only had about 1/3rd of the bone showing. Once I started picking away with my dental picks, more and more bone started showing up (I didn't get to the end the bone in any particular direction) but unfortunately the material is getting tougher to pick away. So my questions are, does anyone know what it is right now, should I continue prepping and if so, would my dental picks and other small tools be okay to use? If we think it will end up being unidentifiable material, I may end up keeping it in the matrix - I actually think it looks pretty cool with the shells and ray tooth. Thanks!
  9. Eagle ray plate

    Hi guys, I am trying to get more information concerning this once in a lifetime find that a good friend recently gave to me. I believe that this specimen is eagle ray material that my life long friend found back in the 1970s. The two pieces of this specimen were found on the same beach about a YEAR apart. Anyway I thought of know better place to show this once in a lifetime find and get more information on this truly rare specimen. Regards ,Cliff Dweller
  10. Sorry, the images are apparently too large to upload, so here is an imgur link to the photos. They were found along the banks of the Potomac, in Virginia. I think it's mostly miocene stuff that washes up on that beach, but I'm not sure. The first is about 4 cm long and 2.5 cm wide; the second, 2.5 cm long and 1 cm wide. The last set of images is just a clam cast I found on a different beach in the same area - I was wondering if it was possible to identify the species of clam from the cast, but if not that's completely understandable, haha.
  11. geological or fossil?

    I often find small rocks(?) like this (sorry forgot the scale penny, but about 1 cm X 1 cm X 0.5 cm), which look like a jumble of distinct rod-like structures stuck together in a matrix. Since they are common was curious what they might be, whether precipitated mineral or something once alive? Thanks in advance.
  12. I already posted this hunting trip at the Zandmotor on my last vacation: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/85026-a-beautiful-day-at-the-zandmotor/ I also visited some other locations like a sand pit near Antwerp (Belgium). This was my fourth visit there and probably the most successful until now The Miocene, Pliocene sand was washed up from the extension of Churchill dock and as you can see the area is very overgrown. You can still find there many shark teeth, bones and bivalves. I mainly concentrated on finding shark teeth. Here is picture of the location: This is a picture of my last visit there last year, because my pictures from this visit are all too blurred But the situation didnt change much. I think that the best method to find something there is to dig a bit and sieve the material. Too bad that I destroyed my sieve more or at the beginnig of the day: After that I had to search on the surface but nevertheless I managed to find some cool teeth This was the find of the day: Could this be a tooth of Isurus Hastalis? I am not sure.... Its about 4.6 cm long I was super happy that I could find such a beautiful and big tooth !! Here is my total haul: And here are some more of the better finds: A 4 cm long Isurus Oxynchus:
  13. Flabellum gambierense, Duncan,1864

    Common coral collected from Fossil Beach, Mornington, Victoria.
  14. Flabellum victoriae, Duncan 1864

    Common coral collected from Fossil Beach, Mornington, Victoria.
  15. After a lot of rain was hoping more teeth would be exposed, but mostly just more sand silting and much of what I found was small or broken and the angel shark teeth seemed to have washed out but I found more further down the creek. Did find a few more smaller Great White ancestor teeth and lots of brown enamel drum 'teeth'. The poison ivy, mosquitoes and deer flies are out in force; baby crayfish are everywhere as well as frogs and minnows. The local kids will get out of school soon and some will find their way to 'my' spots, so I'll leave it to them for a bit.

  21. Another interesting STH find

    Here is an interesting tooth I found sitting on the top of the ground while looking for a shark tooth I dropped. I'm thinking some sort of broken mamnal tooth. What do you think? Size is 10mm across
  22. Volute shell collected from Jan Juc Marl.
  23. Baryspira sp Fischer, 1883

    Olive shell collected from Jan Juc Marl. This shell is a large example for this location.
  24. rapp creek hunting- catfish spine?

    After looking at the Net, this seems to be a fossil catfish spine. How can you tell if it is a pectoral or a dorsal spine?
