  1. What is this fossil?

    Hello, I was shell hunting today on Holden Beach and found, what I believe, is a fossil. It appears to be some type of sea biscuit(based on photos I’ve found online). It is very hard and filled with some type of compacted sediment. Any ideas what it might be and how old it is?
  2. Looking to get an ID on this little guy...is it just an extremely worn sharks tooth stripped of its enamel? Whale tooth? Porpoise tooth? Found on the beaches of Wilmington, NC, in dredged material. It was definitely something at some point in time!
  3. Fish teeth? Whale teeth?

    Found a few of these teeth on the beach (dredged material) in Wilmington, NC. They seem awfully small to be whale teeth. Anyone?
  4. ID - Fish Plate?

    Looking to get an ID on this little guy. I’ve found one or two before this one. Some kind of back plate perhaps?
  5. Bone ID request

    Good afternoon, I have now found a total of four bones with this same shape. Found in Jacksonville, NC at Onslow Beach. I posted one over a year ago that was too worn to identify. Since then I have found these three with two in much better shape. Any idea what this bone has come from in relation to location on body and hopefully what animal? Thank you
  6. I found this oddly-shaped "fossil" in the bucket of Lee Creek sediments I mentioned in an earlier post. This fossil was notably very pale in color, lightweight, and porous.
  7. Curved Aurora teeth

    I found this trio of strange teeth in a bucket of Lee Creek fossil matrix. All 3 are slightly less than one inch in length and seem vaguely cetacean or reptilian. Of course, they could be claws instead of teeth. There are several other mystery fossils I found, but for some reason only 2 photos can be uploaded at a time, so I'll have to make a separate post for each fossil.
  8. Possible Toe Bone

    Good evening, i found a bone that I believe to be a toe bone of a mastodon or mammoth. The bone was found in the Neuse River in Craven County, NC. Thank you in advance for assistance in identifying this piece.
  9. Baby Croc Tooth?

    Hi, I recently found what I believe to be a baby croc tooth at green mill run north Carolina. I was hoping someone might be able to confirm my suspicions?
  10. Tooth?

    I recently went to green mill run and found this strange fossil and I'm not sure what it is. Does anyone know what this is?
  11. Anyone Hunting the East Coast?

    Hey guys, just moved to Wilmington NC from Ohio a few weeks ago. I've always loved fossils and metal detecting but I went on my first shark tooth hunt with my wife and found 27 teeth plus a nice great white tooth. I've been hooked ever since. Is there any groups or clubs for fossil hunting in Wilmington?
  12. Possible tooth-unknown species

    Good afternoon, on a recent trip to Onslow Beach located in Jacksonville, NC I found several interesting items. I will list each separately. I have researched each item and will provide my thoughts on identification. Please feel free to correct me and or provide greater guidance as I am a true beginner. My third item- I believe this item is a small tooth. The shape appears correct however, I have not seen one that looks like this specimen coming from this location. The specimen is very shiny- even when dry as seen in the attached photos. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
  13. Possible Turtle Humerus Bone

    Good afternoon, on a recent trip to Onslow Beach located in Jacksonville, NC I found several interesting items. I will list each separately. I have researched each item and will provide my thoughts on identification. Please feel free to correct me and or provide greater guidance as I am a true beginner. My second item- I believe this item is a turtle humerus bone. The size, shape and slight twist appear to be correct however, I am not very confident in my ID do the species and bone type. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
  14. Possible Mammoth Tooth Fragment

    Good afternoon, on a recent trip to Onslow Beach located in Jacksonville, NC I found several interesting items. I will list each separately. I have researched each item and will provide my thoughts on identification. Please feel free to correct me and or provide greater guidance as I am a true beginner. My first item- I believe this item is a small fragment of mammoth tooth. The ridging appears correct however the fragment I’d very thin/small so not very confident in my ID. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.
  15. 26th Annual Aurora Fossil Festival

    Well everyone, it's that time of year again. It is almost time the the Aurora Fossil Festival. I know many Forum members have attended in the past and I hope many more will show this year. Lots of fun and you get to search the world famous piles at the museum! Several of our local members will be displaying fossils in the community center as well. Hope to see as many of you there as possible. Saturday May 25th. http://aurorafossilfestival.net/
  16. I’ve heard of fossils at all of these beaches and they’re all quite close to either other, so I was wondering if anyone knew which one’s the best as far as quantity and quality are concerned (at this time of year as well).
  17. Unkown Bone From Greens Mill Run

    Ive had this chunk of bone that I found in North Carolina's GMR for a while and haven't been able to come up with any ideas to what it might be from. It looks like it was sawed into two pieces at one point in time. Im not sure if its more likely to be a land animal or something marine since there is a little bit of everything in GMR. I didn't have a ruler on hand at the time of taking the photos but it is about 2 1/2" wide and about 3" long. Any help would be appreciated!
  18. Shark tooth, unknown type

    Found this at Topsail Island, NC. Any ideas what type of shark this was from? It is about 1.5-1.75 inches in length
  19. Help with ID — beach find

    Hi all. I found this washed up on the beach at high tide at Ocean Isle Beach in southern North Carolina this morning. Any help identifying what I found is most appreciated. I thought it might be petrified wood but the shape made me wonder if I’ve found a fossil of some type instead. It is porous. Roughly 1” x 3”. Thanks for any guidance you can provide!
  20. Bone or .. ?

    I recently got an "enhanced grab bag" of fossil matrix. The matrix is from NC, the enhanced portion is shark teeth added in from SC & FL. This large chunk of something was in with it. At first I thought a nice big bone piece, after cleaning it up, not sure if it's bone or some sort of mineral deposit. Pics 1 $ 2 are of the sides, 3 is the narrow "top" & 4 is the split bottom section. The remaining pics will follow. It was just under 17 cm long until I cut about 2 cm or so off the narrow end, 3.5 cm wide & 4.5 cm thick. In the split section & 1 end there are several small crystals embedded in the openings. Red, green, yellow, clear. I can take pics of some of them if needed.
  21. Megalodon or Chubutensis?

    Hello again everyone. I have missed posting on here. Many of you know that I found what I was told was either a small posterior meg or mako tooth last year. I just wanted to say that after further research, I have concluded that it is indeed most likely a mako tooth. This was hard for me to be objective and make this observation because I wanted it to be a Megalodon tooth Anyway, I spent some time at the aurora fossil museum, and I haven’t done any Calvert cliff hunting lately. I found the bottom half of a meg/ chub and I was wondering if it is possible to conclude which it is? It is in the top middle row of all the meg/chub/angy/ fragments I found this year. You can see the posterior mako tooth below the megs. Thanks for the help. On a side note, a goal of mine pretty high on the bucket list is to find an intact meg, any size. I was wondering if there were any coastal NC/ VA natives that could help me on this endeavor? I would be willing to pay for a guided meg hunt, just pm for specifics. Thanks so much guys!
  22. Odd Shark Tooth

    Hey everyone, I found this tooth in the spoil piles at the Aurora fossil museum in NC a few years ago. It's been sitting on my desk for a while and I haven't gotten around to getting it ID'd on the forum, but there's no time like the present. I have no idea what it could be from, maybe a pathological Carcharhinus or Physogaleus? The root is about 2.5 cm wide and the overall length (measured by the blade angle) is about 2 cm.
  23. Possible Mastodon Tooth Fragment

    Good afternoon, I went out to the beach by the old scout hut at Cherry Point and found several interesting items. I believe two of the pieces are fragments of a mastodon tooth. I will try to post as many pictures as possible. Thank you
