  1. Recent GMR Find

    Found this on my most recent trip to GMR.
  2. Green Mill Run

    Hi all. I found this in green mill run in Greenville NC. I don't know what it is but since it has the same enamel look of a tooth I kept it. I hope there is enough of it there for someone to have an idea of what it is! In inches it is about 1.25 and centimeters 3.175. Thank you very much!!
  3. What kind of tooth is this?

    Found this at low tide at North Topsail Beach, NC, USA and am wondering the source. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  4. Is this a fossil? Corolla NC Beach Find

    Hello! I found this on the beach in Corolla North Carolina. The color and texture look a lot like fossilized sharks teeth I’ve found in the past, so I’m hoping it’s some sort of fossil and not just a bit of shell. It’s a little under 1/2inch long. I hope these pictures are clear enough, thank you for looking!
  5. I found this claw while sifting gravels looking for shark teeth in a small creek. Does anybody have any ideas on what this might be? It was found in North Carolina.
  6. Tooth? Found in Green Mill Run

    Hi all. I am sure this is an easy one for you but I would like to be sure, since my guess is only a guess! I apologize that the only measuring tape I had was in inches, but i believe it is just under 35 mm. Found in the green mill run. Near the tar river in Greenville NC USA Thank you!
  7. A new paper is available online: Bisconti M, Bosselaers MEJ. 2020. A new balaenopterid species from the Southern North Sea Basin informs about phylogeny and taxonomy of Burtinopsis and Protororqualus (Cetacea, Mysticeti, Balaenopteridae) PeerJ 8:e9570 https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.9570 The description of a new Protororqualus species from the Zanclean of the southern North Sea basin as well as North Carolina comes months after the publication of the PeerJ paper describing a new Archaebalaenoptera species from the southern North Sea, furthering making clear that the geographic distribution of extinct rorqual genera is widespread like modern rorquals. This paper also re-assesses the genus Burtinopsis, agreeing with Steeman (2010) in treating this genus as dubious (of the material included in the hypodigms of both Burtinopsis species, only 11 can be safely regarded as belonging to Balaenopteridae, of which RBINS M 688 and M 702 mostly closely resemble the earbones of Protororqualus).
  8. 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.
  9. Weird Neogene/Pleistocene Tooth

    I found this the other day in a bag of Aurora micro matrix. It's only about 3 mm long. Could be Miocene, Pliocene or Pleistocene as all three run through the mine and the matrix is thoroughly sifted together during mining operations. There appears to be a root and possibly two tips broken off?
  10. Mystery micro(ish)-fossils

    Hi all, Need some help with this ID! I found this fossil years ago on a beach in eastern North Carolina and it's been a mystery to me since. The best answer I could come up with is that these might be some kind of foraminifera (maybe of the fusulinid variety, though these don't seem to have the tapering at either end), but I'm not sure how to go about researching other possibilities. My camera has a tough time with close-up pics, so this is probably as much resolution as I can get. Thanks in advance for the help!
  11. Hello all! Sorry for the not-so-great photos here. My phone camera is... kind of a fossil. I found this mystery fossil on the beach in North Carolina, USA, somewhere near Emerald Isle if I'm recalling correctly. My best guess is that it's a periotic bone from a dolphin, porpoise, or something of the like, but it doesn't totally match up with images I've seen. I've also considered that it could be a ballast bone, but again, hard to confirm via Google search. Any thoughts would be appreciated!
  12. Chubutensis

    Hi everyone, I'm looking to buy a Chubutensis tooth. I know the question of identifying Chubutensis and its confusion with Megalodon gets posted a lot. I read through the previous topics, and tried to learn how one might differentiate it from Megalodon. It's identified as a Chubutensis tooth, found off the coast of North Carolina. Everything I've read leads me to believe this is a Megalodon - most importantly, I don't see the cusps. I do see the cracks where the cusps may have been, but I also read discussion on other threads saying this is somewhat common and doesn't necessarily mean it's a Chubutensis. Here are the photos provided. Could someone kindly let me know if it's more likely to be a Megalodon or Chubutensis tooth?
  13. Hello all, I was fortunate enough to find a donation worthy specimen last May (2019) during a North Carolina Fossil Club trip to a local quarry. I picked this up while walking along a quarry road and immediately recognized it as being a crab carapace, but I did not know the significance until some members of the NCFC (including our own @sixgill pete) informed me that it was very likely a new species. They then introduced me to Trish Weaver, the collections manager of the NCFC, and I donated it to the museum. Fortunately, Trish and Alessandro Garassino let me contribute to the writing of the manuscript that describes the specimen and let me be a co-author. I am incredibly grateful to all of those people that made this discovery and subsequent publication possible. Common or Scientific Name: Matutites collinsi Geologic Formation or Geologic Age: Spring Garden Member of the Castle Hayne Formation (Middle Eocene Region the fossil was found: North Carolina, USA Museum or University that received the fossil: North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences Link to Publication: https://www.schweizerbart.de/papers/njgpa/detail/296/93733/Matutites_collinsi_n_sp_Crustacea_Decapoda_Matutidae_from_the_Spring_Garden_Member_of_the_Castle_Hayne_Formation_in_North_Carolina_USA
  14. Hi everyone, I have here a 5.64" Megalodon tooth that I purchased. I don't have any reason to believe it's fake, but I got a decent deal on it and just want to make sure it's genuine. It was found off the coast of North Carolina.
  15. Found while tooth diving

    I found this while diving off of NC for Meg teeth. Any idea what it is?
  16. Unknown Teeth Found on Beach

    I found these teeth years ago on Kure Beach, NC. They are pretty worn so I know an ID may be tough if not impossible. Please let me know if I need to provide any closer images and/or any additional information. I’ll number these 1-5 from left to right to make it easier to discuss the individual teeth.
  17. Hello! A little context: this is my very first post, and the item in question resulted from my second ever fossil hunt. I have very little knowledge but a metric ton of curiosity. My husband and I found this item today from material we sifted from the bottom of a creek bed through a 1/4” screen. We were at a place called Green Mills Run (GMR) in Greenville, NC, which I have gathered through even my minimal experience is a prime location for finding all kinds of spectacular specimens. This thing has me scratching my head... thanks in advance for your help and expertise!! (I am totally psyched to be falling into the paleontological rabbit hole) disclaimer: I’m out of practice taking pictures of small finds. If any of the photos are insufficient or if another angle is needed, I’m happy to provide whatever is needed. Cheers!!
  18. Good evening everyone, I recently did some fossil hunting in the Green Mill Run river in Greenville, NC. The water was pretty low - ankle/shin deep most of the time. I'm pretty new to fossil identification so figured you guys could help me out. Location: Green Mill Run, NC Date: July 2020 Excavation process: Shovel to river bed The first looks like a jaw with teeth indentations. It's about 1.9" (50mm) with brownish coloration. Additional photos below.
  19. 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!
  20. I need help identifying this Bone I found after a storm at OBX. The sandal in the picture is a mans size 10.
  21. 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!
  22. 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
  23. 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.
