  1. Found this in a location known as yorktown - I know part of the formation nearby is rushmere member zone two, but I am not sure if the place I found this would also be considered as such but it was found among similar items, tube worms, ecphora quadristata, diadora and slipper shells. I've found a few pieces of this shell before but they have not preserved well so I'm very excited to finally have a whole specimen of this unique and beautiful shell and anticipate getting an exact ID on it! Is this a Margaritaria abrupta? Let me know if additional photos are needed to aid.
  2. Our trip to GMR

    So we finally made it out to GMR to do some hunting. We left Greensboro about 7 am and arrived around 9:15. We walked around for a little bit to scout some areas, and finally found a good starting point. It was slow at first, but we started making really good progress when I found a 2" goblin shark tooth. We continued on throughout most of the day finding tooth, after tooth, after tooth... We found several Meg fragments, some super nice great whites, mako's, 3 mosasaur teeth (the smaller round one might possibly be a crocodile but were not 100% sure), and quite a few belimnites. After we finished for the day we stopped by @powelli1's house so he could check out some of our finds. He's a great guy and has an absolutely amazing fossil collection. When I say he has 15,000 fossils in one room, I'm not exaggerating whatsoever... He helped confirm the ID's of some of our finds, and was kind enough to give us a tour of his collection in the process. After heading home we decided to photograph some of the nicer finds and count everything we brought back. All together we had 944 shark teeth, 3 mosasaur (except if that smaller round one is not a mosasaur tooth), 1 unidentified fish tooth, and 59 belimnites. Here's some photos of everything we found today.
  3. Jaw Fragment?

    Found this possible mammal jaw fragment in Havelock, NC. Was wondering if any of you could help me out. ]
  4. Pine Cliff NC Trip #2

    Hey guys I went to Pine Cliff NC again.(I went Sunday aswell ) This time was a bit more interesting, though not as big teeth some other stuff. I found a fired .22 bullet which is just great. Found some bear poop, even better. I found some cool shells and what apears to be a fossilized tiny mammal jaw fragment. I also found a ray mouth plate which I haven't found before. Does anything stand out to you? anyone know what these are? Possible jaw fragment anyone know what this could be? anyone know the species?
  5. I am planning to head over to Green Mill Run in North Carolina this coming weekend (6/16/18) to do some hunting. I have done a little research but haven't come across too much. I know there are lots of shark teeth, as well cretaceous, paleogene, and neogene fossils. I was curious if anyone has been, and if so what some of the hot spots might be. Not sure if I should head closer to the main river, or stay within the smaller channels to search. Will probably do some visual hunting as well as sifting. Any information would be greatly appreciated!
  6. Shark tooth in NC

    I found this in Havelock NC. The bigger one is 1 inch
  7. Is this a very large shark tooth?

    The friends I am visiting in NC have these next two specimens in their collection. Because I am totally hooked on this now I convinced him to let me send it for help to identify. It’s AMAZING to me!! Thank you all in advance.
  8. Pine Cliff NC

    I went fossil hunting today to pine cliff North Carolina today and got more than I expected (first time at that spot) There was a whole lot I found a pretty big Great white but it was VERY worn. No megs though The pictures don't do them justice, they look bigger in real life. They are all really old and black except for the biggest one which I don't know what species it is. ( I just very recently started this beautiful hobby ) Awesome serrations
  9. What are some places in eastern North Carolina to find fossils? (besides aroura)
  10. Shark Tooth ID (meg?)

    Hi guys and gals, Looking through some of my teeth from the past couple of trips and was looking to get an ID on this tooth. Is it a little meg? Thanks!
  11. Hi everyone, I just got back from my morning trip to the beach and am thrilled to have found another nice tooth. Last night I went out and the tide was much too high, I ended up leaving after a few hours with only a few small teeth. As I searched the beach for the first hour this morning, I started to worry that my luck might finally be running out. Thanks to Memorial Day weekend the beach was absolutely packed, which was an unpleasant change of pace from usually having the beach mostly to myself. As I started to lose interest and consider heading back to the car, I decided to check up higher in the dryer shell deposits as opposed to where the waves were reaching. As I walked a few feet up the beach, I almost immediately stumbled across this tooth, lying completely exposed with footsteps surrounding it a few feet in each direction. The tooth was almost fully dried out at this point and must have been sitting there for close to an hour as the tide had receded 10-20 feet down the beach. Tourists looking for shells littered the beach in every direction, I was in shock that nobody had seen this tooth all morning! I have attached a photo of the tooth as it laid in the sand upon finding it. Unfortunately the tip is a little damaged, however the root is probably in better condition than every large tooth I've found here. Additionally, the coloration of the tooth is very different compared to the jet black teeth I am used to finding. Although I didn't end up finding much else in the next hour or so (a few small teeth), I'm really happy I decided to head out this morning. It's funny how when the hunting has been really good, just one bad day can really kill your confidence. At the same time though, just one good tooth brings it all back! I'll be back out there soon... Cheers!
  12. Aurora Fossil Festival

    Hello all, I have a planned trip to the Aurora Fossil festival this weekend! I wanted to create a thread to hear about who’s going so I could meet you! Let me know! Thanks.
  13. Hi all! The Mace Brown Museum of Natural History will have a table in the community center this saturday at the Aurora Fossil Festival. I'm currently trying to write up the marine mammal assemblage from Belgrade Quarry, which appears to be transitional between the upper Oligocene Chandler Bridge Formation here in Charleston and the late early Miocene assemblage from the Pungo River Formation in the Lee Creek Mine. Bring your Belgrade marine mammal specimens to our table, I'd like to see them! Several members of this group and the exceedingly generous North Carolina Fossil Club have already donated a bunch of great specimens including earbones and teeth. Also, I just realized I accidentally left @sixgill pete off of this flyer - thanks to him as well!
  14. Megalodon Tooth?

    Hi everyone, I just returned from a morning beach hunting trip and found what I'm thinking is a small meg. I'm not entirely sure though, because nearly every other larger tooth I've found here has been identified as angustidens. It was found on Wrightsville Beach/ Wilmington, North Carolina. I'm thinking meg because of the lack of cusps. Anyone?
  15. I am packing my bags for a Friday fossil hunt in Belgrade Mine (Quarry) in North Carolina. The trip was coordinated and planned by the Florida Museum of Natural History. I feel honored to get to go on this trip. There is a 3 foot layer in the Miocene that has mammals fossils that we will be hunting. The mine stripped the layer and has it in 5 huge piles for us to search. About 10 known mammals have already been found in Belgrade. Persons from throughout the US were invited along with those from the FLMNH and the Smithsonian. There is a utube video discussing the objects of the hunt. https://www.myfossil.org/video-tutorials/#Belgrade It has been raining alot in the area recently so I plan on having a great trip. We will also be attending the Yearly Fossil Festival in Aurora.
  16. Pathologic Sharks Tooth

    Hi everyone, I found this tooth yesterday at the beach in Wilmington, NC. I initially thought it was broken, but then saw that it was actually very warped with all of the serration remaining. After some googling I've found that they are known as pathologic teeth. If anyone has any information about pathologic teeth I would be super interested to learn more! Also would be interested to hear opinions on ID. Angy?
  17. Couple of Eocene Cuties

    These little ones are from the Eocene in SE North Carolina, Castle Hayne Formation, not sure what they are. Second one appears to have some root damage.Help please? scale is in mm. Thanks.
  18. Bone? Tooth? Something else?

    Hi everyone, yesterday I was hunting for sharks teeth on the beaches of Wilmington, North Carolina, when I found this. It's very heavy and definitely fossilized, but it doesn't really look like most of the whale bone I'm used to seeing. The piece slightly curves and has ridges down the length of it. It's about 2 inches long, 1 inch wide, and a half inch thick. Any kind of information would be greatly appreciated!
  19. Tiniest Ecphora Ever

    Last week on a trip to the Tar River I brought home several decent sized Ecphora quadricostata along with an assortment of other gastropods and bivalves. This was on the same trip I found the Gannet ulna. While cleaning matrix from one of the larger ecphora's today, I found this teenie tiny ecphora quadricostata. It is 13.6 mm (.53 inch) long and 11.4 mm (.45 inch) wide. Here it is in a standard 4.35 inch by 3.35 inch riker mount.
  20. Possible Mammoth Tooth?

    Thank you for looking at my fossils. I think that I found several different fossils that may be partial Mammoth teeth. Editing to add location: Everything was found at the beach in North Carolina -- South Eastern NC - wrightsville beach. I will seperate the photos so that it won't be confusing. THANK YOU!!!! Fossil 1) FOSSIL 2: FOSSIL 3) FOSSIL 4)
  21. Possible Mastodon -- Part 2

    PART 2 - Hello! I was hoping that you could help me identify some things that I found. A couple years ago I found a Mastodon at the beach in North Carolina and it was identified by the helpful people on TFF. This tooth is in photos below and is CIRCLED red. Editing to add location: Everything was found at the beach in North Carolina -- South Eastern NC - wrightsville beach. Below are 2 sets of images. I am talking to my childs 3rd grade class next week and I am bringing in some of my finds.. I don't feel comfortable bringing anything in that I haven't had identified so any help you could provide it greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to check out my fossils. Fossil 1: . Possibility 2:
  22. Possible Mastodon

    Hello! I was hoping that you could help me identify some things that I found. A couple years ago I found a Mastodon at the beach in North Carolina and it was identified by the helpful people on TFF. I believe that I have found several fossils that could be partial Mastodons. So that I won't confuse you with multiple fossils / pics I will just post this one below. I think that the one below contains multiple teeth? I am talking to my childs 3rd grade class next week and I am bringing in some of my finds.. I don't feel comfortable bringing anything in that I haven't had identified so any help you could provide it greatly appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to check out my fossils. Editing to add location: Everything was found at the beach in North Carolina -- South Eastern NC - wrightsville beach.
  23. So, I've recently been collecting sharks teeth at my local beach in North Carolina. Compared to teeth at most beaches I've hunted growing up, these are quite beat up. Out of the roughly 200 teeth from the past few weeks, I'd estimate that probably 75-90% of them are broken. Nearly every Great White tooth has been vertically fractured, usually cutting corners off of my precious babies. Is this just due to searching in the surf where the teeth are constantly being thrown around? I have been searching for teeth on similar beaches my whole life and have never seen such a high ratio of broken:whole teeth. Would be curious to hear everyone's input on why this might be.
