Hello all, I found this spiriferid brachiopod steinkern (Mediospirfer? Mucrospirifer?) during my last outing to Deep Springs Road, in Lebanon/Earlville, NY. It has 3 dimples in it, that are unusal to me. I'm looking to get some opinions as to the cause here? Are they pathological ? Are they damage from predators? Are they just the way the shell grew, due to proximity to something kind of spiny? Or are they artifacts of the fossilization process? Thank you in advance, for any replies. @Shamalama @Tidgy's Dad
I noticed this on a online listing, and I’ve never seen anything like it before. It’s a T.rex tooth for sale, but it’s serrations are Y shaped on the front side. I was wondering if this is a type of a pathological tooth. I’ve noticed sellers listing misshaped shark teeth as pathological, and I wasn’t sure If the term applied here too or not. I was also wondering if it’s rare or not and if it only happens to T.rex teeth. Just something I noticed and though was out of the ordinary.
Hi Looking thru an old collection of Isurus, three large and one smaller teeth showed a noticeable concave curve on the lingual side (I think I got that right). My first thought was pathological. In doing some "research" apparently there is something peculiar about the 3rd anterior tooth of Makos. Requesting your help with these. I tried to show by stacking the three curved ones with 2 regular shaped makos. Hope that shows clearly. What purpose would this "special" tooth serve? The brachiopod just could not resist getting in the picture. Thanks
So the other day I was at a doctors appointment with my wife and when she was seeing the doctor I went on an on-line auction site and thought I would look around to see what was for sale. I came across the below Megalodon tooth that was a "Buy it Now". The tooth was 4 5/16" in length and the serrations and tip were nice. I was going to keep looking at the other items, but I then thought that I saw something on the blade. I zoomed up on the pic and it appeared to show signs that this tooth came in contact with another of its teeth, leaving serration scars on the tooth in 2 places, so i decided to buy it for that reason. I would appreciate any Meg collector to take a peek at the pictures and let me know if I am correct.
