fossilover posted a topic in Fossil IDAll of these teeth have been pulled from reject material taken from the PCS Mine in Aurora, NC. In one of the pictures are a bunch of slender, pointy fish(?) teeth that I keep finding in my micro material. These teeth range anywhere from just a few mm long to about 10 mm. I cannot find anything remotely close to a close match. I have even searched the elasmo site with no luck. The other tooth was found in the same material. At first I thought it was whale shark, but upon comparing them to this tooth the profile just looks too different. I think I got a positive ID when I searched the elasmo site once again and reviewed pics of a basking shark tooth. I have never actually found one or seen one in person, so I guess I'm just looking for confirmation on this one. Any ideas?
So I doodled on down to Aurora on Friday (8/31/12). My parents had come to visit and since I'm always yammering about fossils I decided to show them what it was all about. They loved it. My mom's first outting produced a Carcharocles angustidens tooth with the corner broken off, a nice lil modern mako and a cow shark lower (Notorrhynchus primigenius). I found my first dolphin tooth, first squalodon tooth and a nice modern tiger. In all reality, I think I had a hemipristis magnet on me! LOL! My dad did well. Finding all kinds of various teeth and some nice shark vert disks. He also found a very tiny dolphin tooth and my husband as well. Hubby found a Catticus to boot. And we both found a couple little thresher teeth which according to the museum director have gotten scarce there. He found a nice pathalogical tooth that appears to be sand tiger. I found a nice fish vert and some sand tigers that looked perfect (until I pulled them out of the dirt). We all know how that goes!!! I love the little stuff too. I found the tiniest sand tiger in my collection and it is nearly perfect! And, the smallest hemipristis I've ever come across. And of course as always a handful of the copper, smooth hammerhead, lemon, silky shark teeth. As well as a couple bull shark teeth. I did find a stumper. It looks like a sharpnosed tooth (Rhizoprionodon sp.) but the front of the tooth has huge "horns" coming from the root, throwing me off. And I ran into MikeDOTB. It was a pleasure and I have to say THANKS AGAIN MIKE!!!! Well I will post a few pictures now!
