  1. Parodotus cf. benedeni (Le Hon 1871)

    From the album Pisces

    32mm. Not so sure about the info and determination on this one, therefore the cf. Picked it up on an internet auction where the only information I could get was "Parotodus, South Carolina". However, with the help of the friends on the id forum I was able to narrow down the id and also am pretty certain that it was found in a river in the Oligocene.
  2. Parotodus provenance?

    I picked up this Parotodus tooth recently on our favorite auction site. The seller couldn't give me much information except to say that it's from South Carolina. I was just wondering if someone might be able to tell me more exactly where it might have originated? I also wanted to ask if this could be a P. benedeni and if it might be from the Eocene, Oligocene or Miocene?
  3. Hey everyone! I realize I have not been active here for quite some time, but fear not - I have been actively fossil hunting! Cris and I have gotten into the habit of filming our fossil hunts lately, I know you have already seen some of his videos. So I'd like to go ahead and share mine as well! We had an insane shark tooth hunt during Shark Week, the perfect time! We also got a little strange, which you'll see. Link is below! It feels good to be back, and I look forward to posting actively again! https://youtu.be/APjz9FBaSOk
  4. We (@addicted2fossils and myself) decided to go check out some dirt roads after some very heavy rain messed up our river sites. It turned out to be a pretty good call! We found a bunch of megs, a killer great white that we spotted at the exact same time and had to do a coin toss for, some great inverts and my favorite find of the day, a huge Parotodus benedeni from Florida! Check it out: Disclaimer: we get kinda weird in this vid. If you don't want to watch the video, here's some (but not all) of the day's finds:
  5. I found this paper informative, it publicly available but took some searching. Hope it helps others. https://www.petit-fichier.fr/2013/01/27/kent-b-w-1999-taille-parotodus-benedenii/kent-b-w-1999-taille-parotodus-benedenii.pdf Citation (MLA because scorn all others, I probably messed it up): Kent, Brettin W. Speculations on the size and morphology of the extinct lamnoid shark, Parotodus benedeni . The Mosasaur, www.petit-fichier.fr/2013/01/27/kent-b-w-1999-taille-parotodus-benedenii/kent-b-w-1999-taille-parotodus-benedenii.pdf.
  6. Sharktooth Hill Weirdness

    Here's an oddball tooth from the STH Bonebed. It is something I bought a few years after starting to collect fossil shark teeth, thinking it was a typical Parotodus lateral. After seeing others over the years, this tooth began to look more strange to me. Maybe 5-6 years ago, isurus90064 and I met up in Bakersfield and I showed him this tooth and he thought it was weird too. A couple of weeks ago, we started talking about it again. A friend just took a couple of good photos of it for me. The root isn't as thick as we might expect for Parotodus but some Miocene and older specimens are not as bulky-looking as the Pliocene teeth.
  7. Few Recent Finds

    Some nice little makos there too. That small one has a neat inclusion of color. The gw is a bit over 2" and has awesome colors and is flawless. The Parotodus is my third and best to date. I was quite surprised to find it. It isn't perfect but is pretty nice. The Otodus is pretty neat. Probably the best one I've found around here even though it's in poor condition.
