  1. GMR Trip

    This past weekend I went to the creek (GMR) in Greenville, NC. We leave the house around 8 am and get there at around 9:15 am. We get in the water, walking to the spot, testing spots in the bottom for a while till we make it to the spot at around 10. When we got there, our hole looks like it was dug out a whole lot. We were walking up, hoping there was still gravel and I spot and little meg laying there on the bottom. I see lots and lots of smaller teeth, causing me to think that a storm washed out all the gravel. We start digging, finding tons of teeth, and around 1 pm, we eat lunch and my friend @AshHendrick shows up to join the party. We dig for about 2 more hours until the hole keeps caving in and its pretty impossible to dig. We Walk downstream for a while and go to a new spot. The spots were okay for around 30 minutes, but then it caves in. That's when we started walking out when we come across and huggge gravel bar on the side of the river. We sit around there for around 45 - 60 minutes picking up some fossils. This is where I found some Native American pottery and some petrified wood. The pictures will tell the rest. Enjoy All the shark teeth. These pictures dont do them justice, the teeth are bigger and more plentiful in person my favorites 2.5 inch mako Nice goblin The great whites fish teeth enchodus with jaw? I think this is a giant barracuda, but it has some really worn serrations? some barracuda teeth This wierd blue thing Native American potterery Gator scale Shark-bitten bone Giant barnacle steinkern First petrified wood I've found. In real life this is read, these pics are not good Belemnites Whale ears fish vert ray scute The only coral I've found there I think this is a partial mammoth tooth
  2. I win a nice Supply complete Creek Phosphate Mine Matrix as a door prize at our fossil club meeting last night. It's a rainy cold day so I decided to go ahead and start searching The Matrix. Probably a little less than a third of the way through the Matrix here's what I found so far.
  3. I found a bunch of new pieces. Please help!

    Found a lot of new fossils this past weekend. I typically collect shark teeth but I am trying to learn about other fossils a little bit now. I’ll post 3 pictures of different pieces because that is the max allowed to post. I’ll also try and post more pics in the comments if I can. Where are my smart people at?!
  4. First time at GMR, didn't find the whale tooth or vertebrae that I wanted to find, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! Was away from my vehicle for four hours. Was not prepared for all of the glass though! Curious if anyone can identify anything in the last two pictures. The small piece isn't supposed to be in that. I'm not sure if the black thing is anything, I just thought it had an unusual pattern.
  5. Weird stuff from nc

    What are these?
  6. So we recently had a family vacation to Topsail Island NC. We found lots of teeth, 2 small megs, and several larger bones (as well as my first bitten bone). I honestly have no idea what these might be and was hoping someone could tell me! They are all generally the same shape and size (about 1 inch long), and they are very thin.
  7. Green Mill Run NC Land mammal tooth?

    I made a trip over to Green Mill Run in NC this past weekend to look for fossils in the creek. My son and I had a wonderful time and found some great sharks teeth and other stuff. I'm stuck though on trying to identify this tooth. It does not look like any of the other teeth that I have found in the creek. Could it be a land mammal tooth? Thanks in advance for any ideas that you may have.
  8. Hemipristis serra

    This is by far the largest Hemipristis I have ever collected. At 1.81 inches wide, it is wider than the next longest one in my collection.
  9. Can't Identify... looks alien! ha

    Morning! I was fossil hunting along Colvert Cliff, NC this week and saw a weird formation in the cliff wall line. I found a plate with unusual organisms on it. They are fossilized and really bizarre. I found it close in proximity to a previous post on a plate found with pasterns on it. These items were found in the wall of the cliff that is eroding away and I'm sure became visible after that location had a violent storm pass through. Any thoughts or identification would be appreciated! Gray coloration on the specimen is clay... which I am removing as best as I can. The coloration around it is the actual fossil.
  10. Can't Identify

    Morning! I was fossil hunting along Calvert Cliffs, MD this week and saw a weird pattern in the cliff wall line. I found a plate with unusual patterns on it. At first I thought it may be a turtle shell but now I'm thinking it may not be. I would love to get some insight. Thanks!
  11. Posterior Megs?

    Hi all, the other day I went out hunting found some really cool stuff, which I'll post soon, but I find these 3 interesting teeth which I think are posterior megs, though I think one (smallest) is more likely than the other two. They were found in Havelock NC.
  12. Need help with one more from Aurora

    Forgot I had this one on the shelf. Would love additional input. Thanks again.
  13. Final Aurora find

    Hoping i found something other than just vertebra while there lol. Thanks again.
  14. Another Aurora find

    Found this with the recently identified whale vertebra. Thanks for the help so far.
  15. Found this a couple of years ago while searching in the phosphate mine spoils in Aurora. Not sure exactly what it is.
  16. Tooth Identification

    Hello. Not too long ago I went to Green Mill Run (Greenville, NC) and found this tooth. Now I found my regular shark teeth, and even alligator teeth, but never did I find one of these (pictured). I was hoping someone could identify. It is 1.5" long.Thanks!
  17. Our trip to GMR

    So we finally made it out to GMR to do some hunting. We left Greensboro about 7 am and arrived around 9:15. We walked around for a little bit to scout some areas, and finally found a good starting point. It was slow at first, but we started making really good progress when I found a 2" goblin shark tooth. We continued on throughout most of the day finding tooth, after tooth, after tooth... We found several Meg fragments, some super nice great whites, mako's, 3 mosasaur teeth (the smaller round one might possibly be a crocodile but were not 100% sure), and quite a few belimnites. After we finished for the day we stopped by @powelli1's house so he could check out some of our finds. He's a great guy and has an absolutely amazing fossil collection. When I say he has 15,000 fossils in one room, I'm not exaggerating whatsoever... He helped confirm the ID's of some of our finds, and was kind enough to give us a tour of his collection in the process. After heading home we decided to photograph some of the nicer finds and count everything we brought back. All together we had 944 shark teeth, 3 mosasaur (except if that smaller round one is not a mosasaur tooth), 1 unidentified fish tooth, and 59 belimnites. Here's some photos of everything we found today.
  18. Onslow Beach find Bone??? Number 2

    Bone number 2 of 3 This does not look like a fish bone to me, but it looks like some kind of bone??? I thought this looked like the head of a long bone... foramen and all. That is creeping me out a bit! What do you’ll think?
  19. Hi all, I found 3 interesting things on my last day at Onslow Beach NC. They look like some sort of bones to me. One I think is a vertebrae. Of what??? I’m hoping you all can tell me. It looks like 3 is the limit on sending pics so I will have to do several posts. If there is information on posting that I should know please point me there as well. I saw something about using the “photo FAQ-page to learn about posting but couldn’t find it. Thank you in advance. Bone 1... Vertebrae?
  20. What could I expect to find in the Belgrade Quarry in NC?
  21. What are some places in eastern North Carolina to find fossils? (besides aroura)
  22. 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!
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
