  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. Partial tooth plate?

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

    This is from the Neuse River in NC. Eocene and Cretaceous. Scale is mm. Your thoughts ?Thanks
  5. 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
  6. I was thinking that this is a Cow Shark para-symphyseal, but upon taking the pictures and zooming in, I am not as sure as I would like to be. Please refer to the following three closeups. The slant length is about 5.57mm. -Bill H.
  7. 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
  8. Help needed with tiny tooth ID

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

    This is from the NE Cape Fear river in NC, Pee Dee formation, Late Cretaceous. Scale is mm. ...Thanks
  10. 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!!
  11. Looking for someone in the area of eastern north Carolina that likes to dive for fossils, that would be interested in joining up to do some dives. As any diver knows the dangers of diving alone. It would be nice to get into contact with a few people that would like to go sometime. I have an 18ft polar craft to go wherever, and several locations that are completely untouched and ready for exploring. Along the meherrin, roanoke, and neuse rivers. Let me know
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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

  17. 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.
  18. Found yesterday in some matrix from Aurora, NC. I think it's an Invertebrate, but not 100% positive... Thanks in advance... -Bill
  19. Tooth from Aurora Matrix

    Found this in some Matrix from Aurora, NC yesterday. I'm not sure whether it's a seal tooth, or a porpoise tooth, or something else entirely... Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance... -Bill
  20. Southport, NC area

    I'm headed to a job out in Southport, NC and I haven't been on a good fossil search in a couple of years. I have been doing some research but I was just curious if anyone had any tips. Trying to stay close to Southport for a search but am willing to travel a little bit. Does anyone know any good spots for any fossils other than shark teeth? I'm more in to brachiopods and corals (I could just never get into the shark tooth scene). Thanks! Kelsey
