  1. North Carolina hollow shark tooth

    I found this hollow mako shark tooth on the piles in North Carolina, I was told that the tooth hadn’t fully formed when the shark lost it but I want a few more opinions on it. Size referencefront
  2. Hi everyone! I wanted to share with you about the crab carapace which I found in 2012. I found it at the Rocky Point Quarry, Rocky Point, North Carolina, USA. This little crab carapace captivated me and I am so thankful to Alex Osso for responding to a trip post I made in 2012. I thought I had a regular little carapace, but with his help and then Don Clements and among several others, the carapace made it's way to George Phillips. Then the research began. I want to thank everyone whom has been a part of this adventure, timeless research, keeping me informed, answering my questions and just taking to needed time to complete the project! Thank you to so many whom also include Barry W. M. van Bakel, Alex Osso, George Phillips, Don N. Clements, Torrey Nyborg, Francisco J. Vega, Trish Weaver, The North Carolina Fossil Club and the manager of the Rocky Point Martin Marietta Quarry, Doug Pope. The crab carapace has been named: Cenocorystes libbyae n. sp. I donated the crab carapace to the Museum of Natural Sciences, Raleigh, North Carolina. The carapace found by the Mark Mckoy Family is in the article too! Such an amazing find! WOW! Have a wonderful 2019 everyone and happy fossil hunting! I posted a link to the article below, hope it works. If not let me know and I may need a little help from a friend with it. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0195667118303495?dgcid=coauthor. The article is published by ELSEVIER, Cretaceous Research. The pic below is from the day I found it in 2012. All the best! Happy hunting in 2019! Libby
  3. Eocene Sponge Identification help.

    Hi everyone! I have been cleaning out, organizing and labeling the mounds of sediment buckets in my garage. Plenty of time over the holiday break to try and get my mind back in to the fossiling mode. I tried at the beginning of this year to get my Friday excursions going again and venture to some quarries, but there are limited areas which the fossil hunter may tread now a days. Then priorities in life too . These buckets of sediment have been waiting for me for many years and months, just waiting for me to take the time to investigate their treasures. I started a few days ago on a few of my Eocene, Castle Hayne Formation, North Carolina buckets. Many bryozoa, crinoid, echinoid and occasional crab claw specimens appeared during my screening and washing. Several species of sponge too. I came across this dandy lil' fella and would like to ask for some assistance in identification. Has that "sponge" look to it and seems to have other characteristics. I did not find it in the NCFC Invert Book or my other Invert books. Any help is greatly appreciated. Best, .
  4. Micro teeth identification

    Hi everyone, I have been going through and organizing all the matrix I have stored in my garage. Slowly washing, drying and sifting trough. My son is getting a kick out of it! He has his own fossil corner now just for him. We started out rinsing Aurora, NC matrix and then moved on to some from Texas. I can not recall where in Texas the matrix came from, my labels had deteriorated. We have been looking through our books and online for identification of the two teeth I posted. If any can help with this, please do. The first tooth is from the Aurora, NC matrix (Miocene/Pliocene). 3mm in length.Texas tooth. About 1mm. Ray tooth?
  5. Found This Tooth On NC Beach

    I found this whole combing the NC Topsail shore today. Couldn't find anything online to help me ID it as a shark's tooth. Is it a shark's tooth? Some other type of animal? Any help is appreciated! Edit: also, it's not very big. Maybe the size of my pinky fingernail if that helps.
  6. Hammerhead Tooth?

    Found this in a pile of shell fragments today. I'm terrible at identifying shark's teeth. From my research online it looks most like the tooth of a hammerhead. I would like someone more seasoned to have a look! Any help is appreciated!!
  7. Tooth? Rock?

    Hello all! I recently moved from Pennsylvania, to Surf City, North Carolina. I've heard shark's teeth are pretty common around here, but I have not been able to find one...until possibly now? I was walking in ankle deep ocean water today and stumbled across this. It sure looks like a tooth...but I couldn't find anything online that would solidly help me identify if this belonged to a shark at one point. Now I'm starting to think it's just a convincing rock. Can anyone help me determine if this is a fossilized tooth or just a clever rock? If it is a tooth, what kind of a animal did it come from? Sorry the pictures aren't the best...the darn sun makes it hard! The top of it (gum?) appears different from "toothy" portion, which has several vertical lines traveling down it...if that helps! Thanks in advance!
