  5. So Many Minis!

    From the album Aurora/Lee Creek Mine Micro Matrix

    This assemblage came from one cup (about 340 ml) of micro matrix from Aurora Fossil Museum. Oddly, they are generally much larger than most of what I found in the rest of the matrix. They are all from either the Pliocene or Pleistocene. See album description.

  9. Greens Mill Run, 9-27

    Had a pretty productive afternoon on Sunday. No large teeth but tons of small ones and lots of bone. One partial shark vert! Some...seeds? That I'm not sure on. Along with one other thing that I'm not sure on.
  10. Odd Little Lee Creek Tooth

    I found this tooth in a bucket of matrix yesterday. It has the hint of cusplets on each shoulder and this kind of throws me. I have my own impression of the I.D. of this tooth but am looking for other opinions. I have thousands of Lee Creek teeth in my collection and have gone through countless gallons of matrix, but this tooth just looks odd to me. Any thoughts or suggestions are appreciated.
  11. Fossilized claw?

    Found this fossil on the shoe of the Neuse River in New Bern, NC. Have found several fossils and sharks teeth in the area over the years but never one like this. Looks like a claw of some sort? Fine serrations along the inside.
  12. Green Mill Run Bone

    Hi. Found this digging in Green Mill Run, nc. I am sure it is bone, but it might not be a vertebrae. (Husband really wants to find a whale vert, so maybe this is a partial?) Also it has definitely turned into a rock, it is no longer light and airy like a more modern bone thanks so much!!
  13. I need some help with some I.D.'s. These were both found in some matrix I collected recently in Craven County N.C. The exposure is Eocene Castle Hayne Formation, ?Comfort member. The site produces a few shark and fish teeth, crab claws, echinoids and starfish ossicles. It is a limestone / bryozoan hash. It is possible of course that this stuff is recent or even possibly Pleistocene as I have found pieces of mastodon teeth very close by. First is a small mammal tooth, 4mm long by 2.2 mm wide. Next is a small jaw piece with teeth. I first thought fish, then was thinking lizard. But I really have no idea. The entire section is 10.6 mm long. the teeth are very very small.
  14. Lee Creek ID help

    Hi. Here are some cool finds from the past week after going through the Lee Creek matrix. I feel pretty confident in most of my IDs. Couple of them I have no idea. Thanks for any feedback! Much appreciated in advance! Enjoy the pictures. 1. I believe this is a catshark tooth - scyliorhinus 2. Tope shark - Galeorhinus 3. I have found a couple of these teeth that are identical to this heart shaped tooth. 4. Hardnose Shark - Carcharhinus macloti 5. I thought this was Dogfish Shark but the more i look at the root, i think I am wrong. 4. Is this a mouth plate from a fish? 5. I think this is going to be put in the Fish tooth pile. 6. Is this a broken tip of whale or dolphin tooth? Normally i would just assume fish tooth but it looks different than the others I have found. 7. Another one for the fish tooth pile?
  15. North Carolina Fossil Formations

    Okay so I have a couple of questions regarding fossil formations in Eastern North Carolina. In recent years I have been hunting for shark teeth in rivers and creeks of North Carolina. Occasionally we will come across deeply cut banks with exposed layers containing tightly packed shell material. I’m curious as to what this formation is called, as well as if this contains fossils such as shark, fish etc. If it does not, what layer does contain these fossils, and is it located above or below the above mentioned layer? I’ve been researching this however, the shell formation I mentioned is the only layer that I can recognize as containing fossils. What do the different formations look like? Just trying to get pointed in the right direction! Thanks guys.
  16. Best Teeth to Date!

    Had an amazing day at the river this morning and found the best teeth I have found to date! Largest semi-complete meg, and two great whites over 2”! The largest being 2.25” which is my new best GW. I saw the corner of the largest great white sticking out of the formation and low and behold it was complete (minus 2-3 serrations near the root), and super sharp! The others were found in gravel beds around a fallen tree.
  17. Dolphin skull

    While working in James City NC today I ran across someone else's find sitting on a bulkhead. It appears to be modern but it was still something to see completely intact.
  18. Greetings everyone! I'm hoping someone might be able to help ID something that is not in the best of condition/shape. It's quite unusual from what I typically see/find here in Eastern NC - at first I was thinking the root of a whale tooth but it's not like any I've seen/found myself before. So, I'm hoping someone might be able to give direction if this is a tooth root or maybe even a small tusk root, possibly? There is only a tiny bit of enamel present on the tip where the tooth would be and the texture on the "inside" is somewhat similar looking to what I'd see in whale or maybe even a sliver of mastadon tooth but not quite - I tried to get as clear of images as I could but if different angles are needed, just let me know! Any help is greatly apprecaited! Found: Eastern NC - outside of Greenville - in a River- items commonly found in this same area (within the gravel deposit)/around it are large chunks of whale bone (Ear bone, rib, skull and verts), Great White, Giant White and meg shark teeth, and some shell concretions. I've found nothing indicating there is cretaceous within this small area to date and cannot recall finding any other mammal material within this location, either.
  19. Please help identify!!!

    Can someone please help me identify this shark’s tooth? It’s 1.25” long. Found in Ocean Isle, NC. Thanks!
  20. Bone found on Holden Beach, NC

    Found this on the beach at Holden Beach, NC. I don't know much about bones and fossils, but it passed the "lick" test. I looked for similar images online and most didn't look to be this worn/polished around the edges, so my uneducated mind is guessing it's fairly old. And it does appear to be fossilized...not terribly heavy, but feels more rock-like than bone-like (compared to a whale bone carving I happen to have that is about twice the size of this, but lighter). Any idea what animal this might be from? Thanks for your help! IMG_8934.HEIC IMG_8933.HEIC IMG_8930.HEIC
  21. I needed something to satisfy my itch since I still cannot get out. So i had purchased a box of matrix from Lee Creek. I spent the weekend seperating the matrix into 4 different sizes. I was excited to try my smaller double decker sifter and it worked perfect. I also used that over a window screen. I found a ton of new items that I do not have in my collection. Including my first croc tooth. It is super tiny but it is my first. These are my finds after my first run through. I think I am going to have to get some type of magnifying glass for the smaller stuff. Any feedback on incorrect ID's is much appreciated. Enjoy the pics. Sawshark - Pristiophorous Croc Tooth Basking Shark - Cetorhinus maximus Whale Shark - Rhincodon Typus Dolphin Tooth Hammerhead - Sphyrna Zygaena Mako
  22. Aurora, NC Shark Teeth

    I have been working on reorganizing my collection the last few days. Today it was looking through my finds from my trip to Aurora, NC many years ago. I was able to identify everything except these 6 teeth. I understand they are not the best examples, but since it was my only chance to visit I kept everything that I found. Any help is greatly appreciated. #1 - maybe Carcharodon hastalis? #2 - maybe Carcharias sp.? - there is a little wide cusplet next to the crown
  23. Aurora, NC Vertebra

    I found this vertebra several years ago in the fossil pit next to the Aurora Fossil Museum. I initially classified the vertebra as whale, but as I go back through my collection, I am beginning to doubt my identification. After doing my own research I think I have been able to narrow it down to Odontocete, but I was curious if there is a way to narrow it further. Perhaps dolphin? But again, these are only guesses. The pattern on one side of the vertebra is very interesting; you can see it in the second photo.
  24. GMR Currently Open????

    Anyone know if the park is currently open? How's the hunting been there lately? Thanks. I really need to get out and hunt some shark teeth.
