  6. Demopolis Formation Shark teeth

    I’ve been working on getting all of our shark teeth properly identified so I went back to a few teeth from the Demopolis Formation. These are from the Frankstown location in Mississippi. The first one up is right around 1” and the little cusps are what initially confused me. Is this a Cretoxyrhina perhaps? I found some images of Cretoxyrhina with cusps that looked similar.

  8. Demopolis Formation ID help

    We got a lot of 20 shark teeth from the Demopolis Formation, Frankstown location I believe. I basically separated them by those I think are Goblin teeth and those that I think are not lol Pic 1 I believe these are Scapanorhynchus teeth. Pic 2 and 3. My best guess on this one is Paranomotodon. I am very unsure of that ID.

  14. Dr. Feldmann has just verified this specimen as Cretacoranin testacea. Quote "It is not a lobster, it is a raninid crab, Cretacoranin testacea. I am attaching a paper in which it is illustrated. It is really a very nice specimen." I will include the paper as soon as I can figure out how to upload it without exceeding my posting limit(?). I would like to thank all the TFF members who participated in making this identification possible. I hope the below photos will help anyone else who may have a specimen in need of identification.

    This scapula fragment was found along a Mississippi creek. It was found in close proximity to a well mineralized deer jaw. The cup portion of the scapula measures about two inches. Does anyone know what animal this may of came from? I believe it's from the pleistocene epoch.
