  1. Took a quick 1 1/2 hour trip yesterday afternoon to a Pliocene deposit on a river here in eastern North Carolina. I believe it is Duplin Formation. Was the first one there when the water got low enough, found some nice stuff. The Pliocene there sits on top of Eocene Castle Hayne limestone, so I got a few echinoids as a bonus. Two 2 inch plus hastalis, a 1 1/2 inch great white. A 1 3/4 inch croc tooth. A nice vert some big tigers, a broken whale tooth and Cacharhinus sp. Also a nice ray tooth file. Possibly Aetobatus. The two echinoids are Eurhodia holmesi.
  2. Thought I would add a few pics of a nice ric I found Friday. From an eastern North Carolina quarry. Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, Spring Garden Member. Whether you call it Otodus or Carcharocles auriculatus, they are always a pleasure to find. 2.58 inches
  3. Another Corolla NC Beach Find

    This is a new one to me and I would love some help identifying it. That is a deck nail next to it for size comparison. Thanks everyone!
  4. Found on the beach in Corolla NC

    I found this last weekend on the beach and am stumped! It is about 1.5 to 2 inches long. Ideas? Link to more pictures
  5. Had a quick walk down the beach the other day and it was actually pretty successful! Not many finds but they were all pretty sizeable! The largest one was half buried underneath the Johnny Mercer pier. It looked whole, and man I wish it was! Any ID ideas for the cusped tooth corner?
  6. A friend of mine (who is not a fossil collector) found this fossils at the Outer Banks of NC. He asked me what it was (which I told him) and why it had turned from its very black color when found in the sand to brown with a white-ish residue? He put it back into salt water (which I never heard of doing) and it is fading lighter brown. I have had similar trouble with my black fossils that I thought it was salt film and I rubbed olive oil on them and it cleaned it off and made them shiny. But . . . . I don't have any fossils this big and nice and I didn't want to give him bad advice. What is happening to the color and what can be done about it? Thanks for any advice! *This is the fossil below but it is wet and the film doesn't show up unless it is dry.
  7. Anyone Hunting the East Coast?

    Hey guys, just moved to Wilmington NC from Ohio a few weeks ago. I've always loved fossils and metal detecting but I went on my first shark tooth hunt with my wife and found 27 teeth plus a nice great white tooth. I've been hooked ever since. Is there any groups or clubs for fossil hunting in Wilmington?
  8. I have the chance to fly down to NC on Sunday. I was wondering if there are any shark teeth on the beaches of the Kill Devil Hills area, just north of Nags Head. If the weather holds up my buddy and I are likely to make the trip just to see 1st Flight Airport and museum but I would love, obviously, to walk on the beach looking for a tooth!! Thanks. Andy
  9. Unkown Bone From Greens Mill Run

    Ive had this chunk of bone that I found in North Carolina's GMR for a while and haven't been able to come up with any ideas to what it might be from. It looks like it was sawed into two pieces at one point in time. Im not sure if its more likely to be a land animal or something marine since there is a little bit of everything in GMR. I didn't have a ruler on hand at the time of taking the photos but it is about 2 1/2" wide and about 3" long. Any help would be appreciated!
  10. Dawson creek trip

    I had to work in Pamlico Co. NC today. While at the Dawson creek bridge I ran across a couple of piles of material like they have at the fossil museum. I couldn’t spend much time picking but it was fun for a few minutes.
  11. North Carolina hollow shark tooth

    I found this hollow mako shark tooth on the piles in North Carolina, I was told that the tooth hadn’t fully formed when the shark lost it but I want a few more opinions on it. Size referencefront
  12. Tusk Fossil

    I was out on the Neuse River this afternoon (Havelock, NC area) and found this piece. It seems to have the correct cross hatching to indicate tusk. 6 inches long 2.5 inches wide. Heavy, layers are flaking off. Is this a tusk...hopefully mammoth and if so how best to preserve. Thank you in advance!
  13. Cusped benedini?

    Are these cusped benedinis? My first thought was otodus obliquus. From GMR, greeneville NC. Was found in a mix of cretaceous, miocene and pliocene teeth.
  14. Cadulus or Polyschides?

    This Scaphopod is from the Pliocene Yorktown Formation, Rushmere Member. Found in some matrix from the inside of a large Ecphora from the Tar River in Edgecombe County, North Carolina. One resource I have at home (NCFC volume 2, Fossil Molluscs) calls this Polyschides thallus while every online resource I can find online calls it Cadulus thallus. I cannot find any resource showing a change in Genus from Cadulus to Polyschides. Does anyone have a resource showing this? Which one is correct?
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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?!
  18. 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.
  19. Weird stuff from nc

    What are these?
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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.
