  1. Hello, I'm offering some Pecten scallop shells, personally collected eroding out of an embankment on the Bogue Sound, which is the body of water between the Island, very famous beach Atlantic City as well as the popular tourist town, Emerald Isle, and mainland NC. I found a lone shark tooth and a ray tooth along with coral in the same layer as these shells, so I know these are fossils. I am not 100% sure, but I think this is Yorktown formation. I am willing to trade or sell. I'm interested in any fossils. This is not all the shells from there. I have many more. I also have a few with coral growing on them. They are all around 3 inches from top to bottom
  2. 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?!
  3. Not sure? Fossilized Bone or Mineral?!

    I found this piece this past weekend. I’m not sure what it is..? Possibly fossilized bone but the consistency is so hard it looks more like a mineral to me? The middle is a beautiful tan, almost shiny metallic color at the right angle. Anyone know what it is?!
  4. Coastal NC find - ID requested

    Hi there, so happy to find this forum! I found this on the beach yesterday and excited to see what you might tell me. This area seems to be rich in fossils of sea turtles, shark, etc.
  5. Went on a meg tooth dive trip and found these fossils as well! Was wondering if anyone could help my out with a ID.
  6. So I had bought from a certain online auction site some Lee Creek mine microfossil matrix a while back... I finally got around to looking over a little bit of it this evening. Attached are what I have found so far without any magnification.

My favorites Some of those famous Aurora makos ( isurus oxyrinchus I think) What I think are posterior isurus oxyrinchus's though the one in the middle one looks like it has a burlette? meg? I would appreciate any feedback on these Two nice Hemipritis Double cusped carcharhinus taurus? Alligator claw core? Bird? Sea urchin spines ray teeth Fish/shark verts and partials. I would appreciate if someone s=told me the difference two of them stuck together Bone frags whale verts and frags Shells Can someone help ID them? I can't seem to find any papers or websites I also spent all my birthday money on their little gift shop. Heres what I got from there. I would be happy for any IDs for them. (I like things labeled) Dont know where from St. Claire. PA fern. What is the age and formation of this locale? Morrocan trilobite pyrite amethyst this is definitely my longest post even though its just pictures mostly
  8. Fossil possibly from Aurora NC

  9. Is it a shark tooth?

    I apologize in advance for posting before in the wrong area (I think). I’m a newbie to this forum but am already so excited about it! My family and I are avid sharks tooth and beach fossil collectors in Emerald Isle, NC. I found this in the late summer (pre-Florence) on the beach in the backwash. It has a shape very similar to other teeth I’ve found but the color and texture is so different! I welcome your opinions; hopefully it will help to settle our family’s disagreement on this one! Thank you, in advance, for your time and I look forward to participating in this forum!
  10. Is it a shark tooth?

    I found this late this summer in Emerald Isle, NC (prior to Florence). My family lives there and we are all avid sharks tooth and beach fossil collectors. We are divided as to whether this is a sharks tooth and I would love to hear some opinions! Thank you! Hopefully the experts here can help settle this discussion once and for all!
  11. Can anyone help me with the water levels at Greens mill run? Going to make a trip there in the next couple days and I want to make sure it’s not super high.. anyone in the area seen if the 10th street bridge is high or the park?! Please and thank you!!
  12. 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.
  13. This coming up weekend?! Sept. 20-22.

    Hello everyone! I was originally going to go to the Mine in Maysville NC this weekend and look for Teeth but I’m pretty sure they will call it off due to the bad weather they had. I also thought about going to GMR but they flood very easy and I don’t know if the water will be down by Thur. Or Friday. Can anyone help me with any spots that might be good within a 3 hour drive of Virginia Beach. Or if anyone reading this lives near Greenville and have any news on the water levels at the park or the bridge could you please let me know?! Thanks in advance! -Holly
  14. hello, I found these shark teeth July 2018. Any info about them would be greatly appreciated. Picture of the front (and back in separate upload) . The largest measurements to the left are inches.
  15. Ball of Sharks Teeth

    Hi all! I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right place (or if it's appropriate for this forum) but I'm trying to help my 91 year old granny identify an item she found on the beach many years ago and has pondered over ever since. She has always thought that it is a shark fetus, but of course has no reason other than speculation to reach this conclusion. Any help you could provide would be most appreciated!
  16. Hello! This is my first time posting on the forum. My family and I got into fossil hunting about a year ago. My two sons (ages five and seven) love dinosaurs just like many kids their age, so while on vacation in Florida, we made a day trip to Venice Beach to look for shark teeth. We didn't even have sifters, but we found a handful of shark teeth and were hooked! We've enjoyed making day trips to Aurora Fossil Museum in NC to "dig the past." We decided to change things up a little and explore Green Mill Run in NC. We live in Chesapeake, VA (near Virginia Beach), so Greenville is about two hours and twenty minutes away. Aurora is about two hours and forty minutes away. We brought a large shovel and a few screens. I have a couple of small hand sifters (intended for baking) that the boys can get a good handle on. We had a medium screen that we bought in Aurora and we zip-tied a pool noodle around it so it would float. This past April, we went fossil hunting in the Peace River in Florida, so hunting at Green Mill Run was similar. The water level was pretty low (a foot high or less) and there was plenty of shade so the boys could take a break from the sun. At first, I tried digging around a rock to see if any teeth were caught up in there. I would get about an average of three teeth per shovelful. It was great to be finding so many teeth like in Aurora while also keeping cool in the water! After about an hour, I decided to try moving around to different spots where I saw lots of rocks instead of sticking one place. This approach yielded even more teeth. We walked away with lots of shark teeth, squid pens (they're called pens, right?), and other fragments that seemed significant. We hunted for about two hours until the boys were ready to go and a bit hangry (I did pack a lunch...). I could have stayed all day, but they were a bit tired after the long car ride--and we still had to go back in the car to get home. It was a great first trip there and I'd love to go back! My husband was a bit worried about the possibility of snakes, but we didn't see any at all. I would definitely recommend water shoes because there was A LOT of glass in the sand. My seven-year-old son makes videos of our fossil hunting trips for his YouTube channel, which he calls Dino Study. If you want, you can watch it below. My five-year-old son doesn't like making as much of an appearance on camera, so there is a little less footage of him. The best finds included a nice, large sand tiger tooth (found by my seven-year-old) and a large great white tooth (I believe) that I found from the surface. Most of the teeth from the day. I saw this and thought it could be a molar of some kind or perhaps just a conveniently-shaped rock. I have a photo of the top and bottom.
  17. Possible fossil, just don't know.

    While fossil hunting at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in North Carolina, I came across this interesting looking (possible) fossil. Two of the pictures are similar, and the last picture is a side view of the rock that it's on. Sorry, that seems to be about the most clarity and zoom that I can get. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated. Joe Thanks in advance Joe
  18. ID request

    Found at North Topsail Beach N C. Believe it to be dugong rib. Thoughts?
  19. Any ideas on what this is

    Any idea what this is? It looks like a tooth to me but not a sharks. Found on Masonboro island NC. (small island off Wilmington - no one lives there)
  20. Type of Sharks Teeth

    I found these teeth on a North Carolina beach about 25 years ago and was always curious what type they may be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  21. Hippoporidra edax

    Mutualistic relationship between bryozoa and hermit crab inhabited gastropod shell.
  22. North Carolina Shark Teeth

    I found these two teeth on Kure Beach in North Carolina when I was a kid. I have tried looking at guides online but I haven’t been able to find any that point out distinguishing characteristics of each species, they only show photos. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  23. Sites near Charlotte?

    I'm going to be in the area and I was wondering if anyone knew of some sites down there. Roadcuts are preferable, but I'm open to collecting along creeks, just not private property and railroad cuts.
  24. Bones in Aurora Matrix

    I ordered some fossil matrix from the Aurora Museum shop in North Carolina. The kids had an absolute blast going through it! We found a very worn vertebra that I was hoping someone might be able to identify. There was also another bone that looks awfully distinctive, but I have no idea what it is. Thanks in advance!
