  1. ID help needed...please

    I found this chunky fossil this morning at Myrtle Beach. I would love to think its mammal associated, but I'm not sure it's not just a mollusk fossil. I may learn more by cleaning the crusty ocean stuff off.. I don't think it's a cast based on the grain in the broken cross section. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Shark teeth found in South Carolina

    Can someone help me identify these 3 shark teeth
  3. This was found on the sand in Myrtle beach South Carolina. Looks like a small vertebrae possibly or a fish skull element, it’s about the size of a dime. Thanks for looking.
  4. Help Identifying a Fossil

    I need help identifying this fossil I found in Myrtle Beach, SC. It was located on the beach.
  5. Help with a bone chunk

    I'm not expecting much on an identification on this one. I'm more interested in understanding if there is a way to determine if a bone chunk is from a marine mammal such as a whale, porpoise, and sea cow, or if it is from a land animal. I am attaching a picture of a chunk of beach bone. I dont normally keep unidentifiable bone, but some about the nice color and density made keep this one. It is about 5 inches at its longest and a couple inches thick. One side is flat and smooth. Another side is broken in cross section and lighter colored. The grain in the cross section is dense. If anyone has some thoughts on generally what it may be or even may not be, I would appreciate it.
  6. Myrtle Beach teeth id's please

    Hi. I found my 1st North Myrtle teeth. Can I please get an ID of the bottom one. The root and blade seem to be from 2 different teeth... Sorry for the bad pic. No camera other than my cell phone. The blade has some very fine serrations. It's a pretty tooth. Thanks. Andy
  7. Jaguar tooth

    My son found this today at Myrtle Beach. I'm thinking cat of some kind. Jaguar? Opinions appreciated Jim Kovalchick
  8. Fossil ID Request

    Good afternoon everyone! I need help in identifying this fossil that was found on the beach at Myrtle Beach. It weighs 3.3 ounces. Thank you in advance for your help!
  9. Found this odd fossil on Myrtle Beach 2-18-2020. Never found one like this. Personal opinion it resembles a crocodile tooth that broke, and point recessed into the larger portion. However it is very solid, and there seem to be no seams to confirm this (and it was a wild guess on my part anyway). Hopefully one of you has a more educated opinion. I'd love to hear from you if so. Thanks for looking and happy hunting.
  10. Turtle pieces? (3 of 3)

    First year trying to identify turtle pieces on Myrtle Beach. I found this piece that confounded me. It is mostly flat. As a matter of fact, three-fourths of it tailors away into a very thin piece. But about a third of it expands into a half-inch thickness with a marrow type look inside. Could this be some kind of turtle foot/flipper? (Last picture might be best angle to see how it tapers.)
  11. Turtle pieces? (2 of 3)

    First attempt to collect turtle pieces and trying to understand and recognize them. Two specimens in this post... PHOTOS 1 and 2: Is this turtle? I see people mention "scute" and I'm wondering if this is scute of something instead. PHOTOS 3 AND 4... Is this turtle? Top looks almost geological but underside looks biological. - Paula
  12. Turtle pieces? (1 of 3)

    This was the first year I tried looking for turtle pieces on Myrtle Beach. I found a ton of possibilities, but had some questions on them. There are two specimens represented in this post... Photos 1 and 2. Is this turtle? I'm having a hard time figuring out where on a shell this "flare" design might be. PHOTOS 3 AND 4...Is this turtle? Looks like wood on one side, and marrow type activity on the other, but the woodsy side has me skeptical. I have a few pieces that look like this... - Paula
  13. Is this a dolphin/whale tooth?

    This one is a first for me. Online sources indicate perhaps dolphin/porpoise/whale? Can anyone narrow it down? Myrtle beach find. Thank you! - Paula
  14. Is this tortoise shell?

    One last piece for today as I clean up my finds from my trip to Myrtle Beach. I have a few pieces like this and I think they are tortoise. Just wanted to confirm. Thoughts?
  15. Need oyster ID

    Can't quite figure out the ID on this oyster. Myrtle Beach Thanks as always! - Paula
  16. No idea what I have here. Just intrigued me because there is a circular impression on one side. Absolutely no idea what it might be if it's fossil trace. More likely some geological effect. Thoughts? It's about 3.5 inches long. Myrtle beach find.
  17. Are there shark bites on this bone?

    Found on Myrtle Beach. I'm thinking this is some sort of whale bone, perhaps rib. Agree? And I don't want to read too much into cracks in this bone, but could they be shark bites? Thanks! - Paula
  18. Fossil?

    My son found a fossil and he would love to find more information about what it could be, thank you in advance!
  19. Picked this up today on Myrtle Beach. I thought it was a steinkern, slightly different shape than others I'd collected. Then I noticed pitting - like marrow - on part of it. (See second photo.) It's a very distinctive shape, so wondering if anyone sees a recognizable bone in this, or is just a steinkern that those little hole-diggers got ahold of? Thanks!
  20. The black part of this is so smooth and shiny, it truly looks like an enamel. But even though it is somewhat conical, it doesn't seem to be a tooth. Part of it looks very much like plain rock, but then the shape looks rather deliberate. Oh I don't know - I give up. Any ideas?
  21. Ok, this is just a fragment, but still - I don't recognize it. Thoughts? The surface is rounded, the backside is hollowed out. It's way, way bigger than any croc or gator tooth I've found, though the striations on the front remind me of that.
  22. What is this? Myrtle Beach find

    No idea. Kind of reminds me of a sea urchin, but not quite. Also reminds me of the kind of "hat" an acorn wears. It's got a little peak to it. Animal? Plant? (Side view and better top view added below in a post.)
  23. Possible mammal tooth of some kind?

    At first I thought it was the tip of a rib, but I see little swirls of enamel inside like a horse - though this doesn't look like the couple of horse teeth I've found. Perhaps another mammal of some kind? Myrtle Beach.
  24. Ok this is a strange one. If I look head on, I think I see rings - like tree rings. But also weird because there appear to be perhaps growth rings on the outside - two of them. Makes me think of how bamboo grows, with that thick outer ring every so often. Of course, probably just rock with a real interesting history, but there are some marks on this that just have me intrigued. Myrtle Beach find.
