  1. Possible Bone for ID

    Good afternoon! I found this large bone fragment (?) while walking along the neuse river in Craven County, NC. Can anyone tell me what this bone might be? Such as distal end of femur of large mammal? I know fragments are difficult to pin down but the size of this has me very curious! 5 inches wide and 4 inches thick. Thank you!
  2. Possible Vertebrae

    Good afternoon, I found this item, that I assume is a vertebra, Lang the Neuse River in Craven County, NC. The shape is unusual and I was wondering if someone can tell me more about the bone. 1.25 inches wide 3.75 inches long and 1.75 inches tall. Thank you very much!
  3. NC Skull

    I’m new to identifying. Can anyone help with this guy?
  4. ID Request Tooth

    Good evening, I found this tooth in a scrub line of trees along the Neuse River in Eastern North Carolina. My first thought is shark tooth however there is something about the tooth that just doesn’t seem to match anyone have researched. Can anyone help me to ID? Thank you in advance
  5. Need help identifying teeth

    I'm not even sure what these are, but I was kayaking near Cherry Point and found these while walking on a sandbar. They seemed really unique so I tried to look them up and haven't found anything.
  6. Bone ID request

    Good morning, second post today! I found this bone in the Neuse River in Craven County/ Eastern NC. The shape of the bone is throwing me off on my google search. Can anyone identify the bone? Apps size is 3.5 inches by 3 inches. Thank you
  7. Bone verse Petrified Wood

    Good morning, I found this piece in the Neuse River in Craven County NC. On the same trip I found a piece of tusk that has 90 degree Schreger Lines (thank you very much for help in identifying the piece) making it diagnostically Mammoth. I just cleaned up this piece and am confused about the status of petrified wood/ nice rock/ or bone. The texture seems to be similar to some fossilized bones in my collection. That being said, the internal structure has a “core” that appears to be similar to the tight tree rings seen in early growth. I will post more pictures in comments. Thank you
  8. 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!
  9. Help with identification

    Need some help with the identification of these. I believe they are all the same. At first I thought baby alligator, but don't think so. The biggest one is roughly 2 inches.
  10. Visiting and need location ideas

    I’ll be visiting family in Goldsboro this spring and need some ideas of nearby locations to look for fossils. Regrettably I did not hunt for fossils while living there, so this will be my first excursion there. I’ve seen that the Neuse River produces some nice stuff, and luckily it’s practically in my parent’s backyard so it’ll be easy for me to access, but I’m unsure if there is a certain area I should be looking in. I’m also not opposed to going to nearby beaches for a day trip. Any and all suggestions are welcome and greatly appreciated.
  11. Sawfish oral tooth ?

    Not sure about this one. It is from Neuse River in NC. I have eocene and cretaceous material from this site. Scale is in mm. Thanks.
  12. The Sunday of the weekend before Hurricane Mathew came a calling, a friend and I decided to spend the day fishing on the Neuse River in eastern North Carolina. WE had a pretty good day fishing, caught lots of small puppy drum and stripers. No keepers but fun to catch. About halfway through the day we left the creek we were in and headed back into the main river. Heading from the Cherry Point area heading over towards New Bern. A mile or so up we saw fish busting all over the surface on the Flanners Beach side of the river but not quite that far. We motored towards them and for an hour or so caught stripers on almost every cast. As we were leaving we noticed there was a small cliff eroding out and decided to check it out. We beached and found small gravel on the beach in a strip about 40 or so yards in front of the eroding cliff face. Now, I have been on this river my whole life, but have never noticed this area before. We started finding bivalves almost immediately. We also found some small worn shark teeth, a nice burfish mouth plate and some possible small bone material. I am trying to pinpoint down the age of this exposure. There is Pleistocene Flanner Beach Formation and James City Formation nearby. James City is earlier. There are also Pliocene deposits. Possibly Yorktown, Chowan River or Duplin. The reason I am adding all of these is because of the bivalve ID's if I have them right. So any help is much appreciated. Please correct any incorrect ID I have as I am still learning how to properly ID Molluscs. The first is a bivalve that according to my reference is known from the Pliocene Duplin Formation; Glycymeris subovata Next an oyster Myrakeena sculpturata, from the Chowan River Formation (Pliocene) by my reference.
  13. Fossilized Bone or Coral?

    I have been in possession of this "rock" for a while, so I can't be positive where it was found, but it was either the Neuse River banks in Pamlico County, NC or the Topsail Island (Surf City, NC) beach. I'm leaning toward Topsail. It's shape suggests another fossil (whale ear bones??) but the structure/pattern (close-ups) in the fossil looks like it should be a coral. Any input appreciated.
