  1. Hi everyone, I just got back from my morning trip to the beach and am thrilled to have found another nice tooth. Last night I went out and the tide was much too high, I ended up leaving after a few hours with only a few small teeth. As I searched the beach for the first hour this morning, I started to worry that my luck might finally be running out. Thanks to Memorial Day weekend the beach was absolutely packed, which was an unpleasant change of pace from usually having the beach mostly to myself. As I started to lose interest and consider heading back to the car, I decided to check up higher in the dryer shell deposits as opposed to where the waves were reaching. As I walked a few feet up the beach, I almost immediately stumbled across this tooth, lying completely exposed with footsteps surrounding it a few feet in each direction. The tooth was almost fully dried out at this point and must have been sitting there for close to an hour as the tide had receded 10-20 feet down the beach. Tourists looking for shells littered the beach in every direction, I was in shock that nobody had seen this tooth all morning! I have attached a photo of the tooth as it laid in the sand upon finding it. Unfortunately the tip is a little damaged, however the root is probably in better condition than every large tooth I've found here. Additionally, the coloration of the tooth is very different compared to the jet black teeth I am used to finding. Although I didn't end up finding much else in the next hour or so (a few small teeth), I'm really happy I decided to head out this morning. It's funny how when the hunting has been really good, just one bad day can really kill your confidence. At the same time though, just one good tooth brings it all back! I'll be back out there soon... Cheers!
  2. Crocodile tooth or plesiosaur

    This tooth came from a NC quarry known for both Eocene and Cretaceous fossils. My first inclination was a croc tooth. Is it possibly plesiosaur? Seems like the shape could fit either.
  3. I went river collecting one weekend in early April this year, the water dropped pretty darn low for this time of year allowing me to get to some spots that usually I can only access June through September. I found more echphora than I've ever come across in a single trip, a couple of them are HUGE and a few were near perfect/complete! Also found my first larger (2 of them!) Welch (or conc? still trying to ID it) from this site along with a great array of other items. My personal favorite from this trip was the echphora with a barnacle attached - I always love to find barnacles attached to bivalves and gastropods and this guy even had some worm tubes attached with it! . PM me if you want some higher quality images to zoom in on - I only had the four photo's and file limit size restricted what I could put that would allow you to really zoom in on each item clearly. Don't ask me WHERE I found these, I will tell you exactly what the title says, Eastern NC on a river.
  4. Tooth?

    I found this item at Onslow Beach in Jacksonville, NC however it wasn’t on the beach. It was found along the roadway approaching the ICW bridge located right before entering the beach strand. It has the shape of a tooth but that might be wishful thinking. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
  5. NC or MD?

    Looking to explore an area outside of our "home base" this Sunday. Plan to head out Sat evening and venture to the Calvert Cliffs area, OR Aurora, NC for an early Sunday hunt. Any tenured hunters of shark teeth have a recommendation on which direction may be best? Pros/cons of each locale? Would love to meet up with an expert/local in either area. Not to discover your honey hole or special spots, but to learn the lay of the land and laws to make sure we stay in the right, and some general knowledge tips on hunting in either place. Thanks!!
  6. Cretaceous Vert ?

    My find found this at a recent quarry outing and is asking for a positive ID, it is cretaceous, pee dee formation, there is also eocene, castle hayne formation there. It is concave on one end and convex on the other end. Thinking croc or mosasaur ? Need some help please. Thanks.

  9. Jellyfish fossil?

    I discovered this specimen by chance a few years before I got into fossil hunting. I was on a vacation at Oak Island, North Carolina when I found it. I am thinking it is a Jellyfish fossil.
  10. Tiny Oddity

    I have this echinolampas appendiculata from the eocene , Castle Hayne Form., of North Carolina that has a strange tiny ( 4 mm dia.) critter riding along. It has tubercles like an echinoid, but in some ways looks like a barnacle or maybe sponge ? Any ideas ? Thanks
  11. Serratolamna koerti ?

    I found this a while ago on a spoil island in the Cape Fear River in Wilmington, NC . I believe this is mostly Castle Hayne formation, eocene. Tooth is 1 1/4 inches long. Missing a side cusp, no serrations, no nutrient groove that I see . Is this a Serratolamna koerti ? Thanks for your help.
  12. Rhincodon ?

    This is from a site in eastern NC where everything found is Eocene, Castle Hayne Formation. It looks like Rhincodon, which is Oligocene. Could it be a transition tooth, or is this something entirely different? I dont see any signs of worn down side cusps but the root itself appears to be worn down or fragmented. Scale is mm. Thanks
  13. Tooth ID

    This is from the Neuse River in NC. Eocene and Cretaceous. Scale is mm. Your thoughts ?Thanks
  14. Partial tooth plate?

    Is this a partial tooth plate ? or something else ? Neuse River,NC , eocene and cretaceous material there. Scale is mm. Thanks
  15. heterodontus or rock ?

    In your opinion do I have a rock or a worn down heterodontus ? Neuse River NC, eocene and cretaceous . Scale is mm. Thanks
  16. cretalamna appendiculata ?

    I am still trying to learn to identify all the many sharks teeth , after some research ( books, elasmo.com, and other sites,including this one) I think this may be cretalamna ? It is from the the Neuse River in NC, eocene and cretaceous. The first 4 pics are first tooth the last 4 pics are a second tooth. Neither have much (if any) nutrient groove, more of a foramen. I was thinking they are both same ,just different position? Scale is in mm. Thanks
  17. Help needed with tiny tooth ID

    This is from the the Trent river in NC. Eocene. Scale is mm. Thanks
  18. Palaeogaleus or Galeorhinus

    This is from the NE Cape Fear river in NC, Pee Dee formation, Late Cretaceous. Scale is mm. ...Thanks
  19. Spontaneous NC trip

    Last weekend we went on a spontaneous trip to NC and found some cool stuff. It was quite a cold boat ride in the morning but what a great time and with good people! Thanks @SailingAlongToo for the opportunity but sucks you had to work. It was good to see Theresa back out and about and hanging out with @Daleksec . Hopefully the pictures are decent. Found an epic poo and finally got my full theropod tooth!!
  20. This is a squalodon, right?

    I put a low bid on this not thinking I would win? Then I did so I want to make sure this is what I think it is. It was labeled as squalodon, is this true? Should be here soon, until then here are the sellers photos, it’s from lee creek mine, Aurora, NC. Remember a fossil hunting friend of mine looked for one for many decades till he finally found one last year and was ecstatic. So o thought they were rare, but with the price I payed I’m starting to doubt that. I’m going to save y’all the trouble of calling @Boesse to the thread and do it myself.
  21. Another interesting GMR fossil

    Good morning everyone! I have another interesting fossil that I've been researching to identify and I'm stumped. My first thought was turtle but I can't seem to match the part to anything in the anatomy. I apologize for no scale in the photo but it's 2.5" long and just over 1" wide at its widest point. Thanks for the info!! In addition, this came directly from the green clay/quartz layer.
  22. Greens Mill Run, NC Fish Bone/Vert ID

    This was found a while back by a friend I was hunting with, busting open some rocks in the creek - nothing else was really in the rock but it was found with the usual GMR items washed into a gravel bed. There is a small vert attached to it but I am interested in possibly identifying WHAT bone that is attached to the vert and maybe even narrow it down to a type of fish (I assume it's fish). The bone attached reminds me of those tilly fish bones in texture/appearance. Any connection? 1- LOCATION Greenville, NC Greens mill Run. (Green Mill Run) 2- GEOLOGY/Formation Generally this location is part of the york town formation, Miocene-Pliocene-cretaceous 4- ASSEMBLAGE Shark teeth (mostly makkos, tiger near by) Belemnites and whale bone.
  23. Found two things at different times a while back in the creek that I am in need of direction on trying to ID. I find horse teeth some at GMR but am hesitant to assume that's what either is - not just because of the small size but because the patterns are a bit different from the horse teeth I've found - though none 100% complete for me to say that is more than an armatures eye. Any assistance to ID this would be greatly appreciated! I copied the main concerns from FAQs on posting here, so hopefully I was able to provide enough detail for some assistance. 1- LOCATION Greenville, NC Greens mill Run. (Green Mill Run) 2- GEOLOGY/Formation Generally this location is part of the york town formation, Miocene-Pliocene-cretaceous 4- ASSEMBLAGE Shark teeth (mostly goblin, crow, makkos, tiger near by) Belemnites and whale bone. Items are shown next to th e inch side of a ruler. 1. 2. The other tooth

  25. NC during the Pleistocene

    I'm curious as to what North Carolina was like during the Pleistocene. Does anyone know if there are any references specifically addressing this time period for NC or the Southeast? It is my understanding NC was not covered by glaciers. Is there any reason why Pleistocene aged fossils could not be found in most areas of the state? Any information or resources would be appreciated.
