  1. Hello, everyone! I will be in North Carolina on a family trip for the next week, but I’d like to do some fossil hunting as well while I’m out here. I’m in the New Bern area specifically. Does anyone know of any good fossil sites in the area where one can collect? Thanks!
  2. I need help identifying this Bone I found after a storm at OBX. The sandal in the picture is a mans size 10.
  3. Micro Fish (?) Tooth

    I found this - almost missed this - while sifting through some micro matrix today. I'm guessing some sort of fish tooth, but can anyone confirm? From Aurora Fossil Museum, Aurora, North Carolina. Lower to middle Miocene from the Pungo River Fm. It's so small that I have a hard time getting the camera to focus and my microscope cam just made it a big, black blob, so I apologize for the soft focus. That course rug it's sitting on is a piece of fine velvet!
  4. 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
  5. Possible Herbivore Tooth?

    Hello! First post here, looking for an ID on this item. I found this on my recent trip to GMR, North Carolina. To my untrained eye it looks like it could be some type of herbivore tooth, but it could also very well be just a rock. Any help is appreciated! I don’t have a metric ruler, so I had to use one with inches. Pictured is the front for length, on its side for width, on its back for reference, and then me holding the item at an angle to show more if it’s top features.
  6. I hope this is the right place. I am hoping to find some spots in these areas. I'd prefer Carboniferous as opposed to Devonian, or Miocene/Eocene. Would any of you know any spots? Maybe road cuts, or abandoned quarries those sorts of places? I'd be willing to pay for access if need be. If you don't feel comfortable outing it, please PM me. Thank you!
  7. Unknown vertebra

    Hi all. Found this vertebra the other day in Greens Mill Run (Eastern NC). I immediately thought this one looked different than any other vertebra I have found. I initially thought reptile, but cannot find a good match in any reference or from anything in my collection. I would appreciate your thoughts.
  8. Need help ID multiple Items

    Hi guys! I’m new to this, but my wife and I have been shark tooth hunting for the past month thanks to “quarantine”. We have found some interesting things, but can’t seem to pin point what they are exactly. We believe some may be megalodon teeth, great white teeth, and a dugong bone. All were found at Onslow beach,NC. We appreciate your guys help!
  9. Found in North Carolina

    Hello everyone, newbie here, and thank you for helping me figure out what I found. All those were found in a pile of mixed gravel/sand/sea shelves in Raleigh, NC but it was imported, I believe from the Aurora, NC mine several years ago. Anyway, I was lucky enough to find several items including bones and dozens of shark teeth but I am not familiar with a few of my findings. Hopefully you guys can help, Thanks again!!!
  10. What is This ?

    I found this steinkern in the Maastrichtian, Peedee Form. of SE North Carolina. It is 5 inches long, 2 1/2 inches wide. Any ideas ? Thanks
  11. Ediacaran body fossils are extremely rare in North Carolina. This specimen came from a well dated Ediacaran Site. The site produces Aspidellas, microbial mat, and trace fossils. The Cid fm is the unit exposed in this quarry. Some have argued that this is microbial mat that had been influenced by the movement of water. If you look closely there is at least two specimens and the structure doesn't appear to show the MISS type features. I have sent some photos off to paleontologists who specialize in Ediacaran fossils. I'm eagerly waiting to find out what they think. I have had at least one paleontologist who believes this will be the first record of the presence of these species in the NC Ediacaran!
  12. Is this mammal tooth a fossil ?

    Hey All, I found this tooth in some micro material from a creek in Castle Hayne NC. Was wondering if it was fossilized or not. Other material found were really worn small sharks teeth from the Eocene Castle Hayne Formation. Thanks.
  13. Need help

    Found this What looks to be a tooth but I’m not positive and can’t find anything on it any ideas? Very thin but can’t break it.
  14. North Carolina Puzzler

    Never seen one like this before, and after scouring my books I've come up with a blank for ID. Maybe a fish crushing tooth, or a plate, or even some loose teeth fused together? Possibly some kind of scute?? But from what, or am I way off base? What do ya' think? Collected from an Early Pleistocene, Waccamaw formation site, Columbus Co, Southeastern North Carolina. The site is primarily a shell bed, with some fish bits, and an occasional small shark tooth. Scale is 1mm.
  15. Lee Creek Micro ID help

    We got a very small amount of Lee Creek micro mix and it didn’t yield much in terms of volume but we did get a couple of excellent Hammerhead teeth, a Galeorhinus, and a few others. There are a couple of unsolved mysteries though. Up first is a 3mm mystery partial tooth. Under the scope this tooth bore no similarity to any other found. I looked through EVERY shark and batoid tooth picture for Lee Creek on Elasmo. The tooth that came the closest was actually Megachasma but I’m convinced that can’t be correct. The root is not intact and I can’t do any better on the pictures for now.
  16. Hello all! I found this along Topsail Beach in Surf City, NC. Definitely not like any tooth I’ve picked up before and was hoping for some help identifying. If I need to get better pics let me and I’ll try again! Thanks so much for looking!
  17. Shell with Embedded Something

    I have an Exogyra costata from the Peedee Form.(Maastrichtian) in North Carolina that has an oddity embedded in the right valve. It is not a shell or barnacle attached to the surface, and is almost perfectly round ,unlike any boring clams I have seen. I have picked ( dental probe) around the oddity to confirm it has depth and is not a surface attachment. It appears it was hollow as it is now filled with hard sediment. It has been suggested this may be an example of bioimmuration of some sort. Anyone have any ideas ? Thanks.
  18. I took a trip yesterday (Easter Sunday) morning to a few river sites in a neighboring county. The first spot I went to is a Pliocene exposure of zone 2 Yorktown Formation. While I found the normal culprits of teeth, mako's, hemi's and a small meg; it was the unexpected find that made this trip. While I have found fragments, I have not found anywhere near a complete echinoid there. Well Easter changed that, the Echinoid Bunny left me a good egg. I found a gorgeous complete Arbacia improcera. A rare Pliocene echinoid, my first. As found: after the first cleaning: second cleaning: third and final cleaning:
  19. Brachiopods

    Hello, Here is a couple of brachiopods from the Castle Hayne Form.( Eocene) of SE North Carolina. They are both argyotheca but of 2 different species I believe ?They are both 7mm. The first one the valves are open. The second one the valves were open also when I found it but are now in 2 halves. I included pics of outer and inner of both halves.If you have any information on the species I would be grateful.
  20. Mosasaur or Plesiosaur?

    I found a tooth in Bladen County, NC at a site on the Cape Fear River near Elizabethtown. The site is Upper Cretaceous, and is Upper Campanian in age. It's in the Black Creek Group. I know that the tooth isn't in the best of shape, but hopefully is identifiable. All the Mosasaur teeth I had collected there before are a black color. I noticed this tooth is also curved from side to side. I don't know if it's a Plesiosaur or Mosasaur tooth. Both have been found at this site, but the Plesiosaur is far less common.

  22. Tiny tooth ID needed

    I have a tooth here from some micro material from SE North Carolina, its mixed Eocene ( Castle Hayne Form.) and maastrichtian (Peedee Form.) It was suggested that maybe its a symphyseal ? Does anyone have an idea from what? There does not appear to be a nutrient groove, but it is only 4mm. Thanks for your help.
  23. Toothed Jaw Bone ?

    Hello All, I was picking through some micro material from SE North Carolina, its a mix of Maastrichtian (Peedee Form.) and Eocene ( Castle Hayne Form.). I found what looks like a tiny ( 7mm long) jaw bone with teeth. If it is a jaw bone , is it a tiny reptile or a bony fish ? Or perhaps it is neither but something else. Thanks for your help.
