    Is this fossil from the Calvert Cliffs a ray barb fragment, or something else entirely? It measures 1/3 of an inch as far as it's size goes. Thanks for any suggestions regarding it's identity.
  4. Great day in big brook

    Great day in big brook from 7am to 12 noon. Whole bunch of shark teeth including the biggest one I’ve found yet; 1.25 inch goblin plus a lot of John Snow teeth. A couple of pycnodont and a couple of cow nosed rays. One small enchodus and a couple of TBDs. Did also find one tick when I got home so be aware
  5. ray/shark tooth or just shell fragment

    Good morning again!...Been working on this little piece I found in Pennsylvania Winterset limestone in Kansas City, Missouri. Before I go any further, can anyone help with what it is? If just a shell fragment, I"ll stop and add it to my growing rock pile! :).. thanks! Bone
  6. Atlantic beach NC finds

    We are on vacation at Atlantic beach NC. My wife and l went shell collecting and I just happened to find these. I recognize the ray mouth plate but I'm drawing a blank on the other, dolphin or fish?
  7. Calvert Cliffs Ray teeth

    Hi everyone, I would like to ask about these ray teeth from Calvert Cliffs. All I know is that some of them are Aetobatos I think. Thank you.
  8. Here are my new fossils! And how my collection looks now. For size comparison the enchodus tooth to the right in the picture of the entire collection is 5,6cm long (2.2 Inches long)
  9. Castle Hayne fm. Ray tooth

    Found this little guy in some Castle Hayne formation micro-matrix from Eastern North Carolina. I've tentatively ID'd it as Daysatis sp. Please, confirm, correct or if possible ID to species? Also, In the 3rd and 4th pix, do you think the circular "structure" on the surface is diagnostic, pathologic, damage or ?? Scale is 1mm. (And, please excuse my ugly green clay!) Thanks.
  10. Batoidea unindent. Vertebrae

    From the album Cenomanian Shark Teeth and other Marine Fauna, Ryazan Oblast, Russia

    Batoidea unindent. Vertebrae. Ray material is seldom found at the quarry.
  11. Just found this at Whiskey Bridge. Photos suck because the natural light is gone and I'm too tired to find a camera, but I don't think there's much else this could be. It's a cm long, clearly broken at one end. I didn't think to look around for the rest of it, but I doubt I would have found anything anyway- this was in a heap of eroded-away bits of dirt, everything scattered around.
  12. Ray mouth plate?

    Thinking this is a Ray mouth plate. The one on top is my question. I don't find them this large, the other is just there to compare. Found in Venice Florida in mound of fill dirt.
  13. Ray plate or what?

    Found this on the shore in the Potomac with tons of other ray fossils. Is this from a ray or something else?

    Hello! Is it rays teeth and if its possible to identify them? Probably, paleogene or cretaceus. Thanks!
  19. So, I've been hunting sharks teeth on and off in South Alabama since a young child. Since my two kids have gotten self sufficient, me and the wife have been taking alot of trips to the river to look for teeth. Finding the normal small teeth, for our area, got me to wondering if there were bigger teeth in our area. That led me to some late nights of researching the ins and outs of my area. The area we are close to has alot of Eocene era fossils and I quickly learned the Carcharocles auriculatus was THE SHARK during this time period. So, my goal became to find a complete tooth in my little honey hole. We would spend weekend after weekend at the river with the kids. My 8yo and 3yo right there with us digging and sifting! Both who want nothing more than to become paleontologist when they get older and sit there picking out ray plates, vertebrae, and teeth with excitement growing every time they see something in the sifter. Over the past several weeks, we have dug 100s of teeth and many other cool fossils which I have added to our collection but just chips of the elusive Carcharocles auriculatus teeth were all we were finding. Last night while at church, I was talking with a family about our finds thus far. You could see their kid's eyes lighting up with curiosity and they asked if we could take them sometime. We had originally planned on taking time to do some house stuff but I could tell their kids really wanted to go. We made a plan to meet this morning before the rain. We made the long hike to the hunting grounds and began to dig and sift. One after the other, the kids and their parents were yelling with excitement finding their first teeth! I was digging around getting dirt for them to sift when I felt that unmistakable sound of hitting something solid. I cleaned around the area and I saw a serrated edged tooth. Surely not...not a complete tooth. I carefully cleaned around the area to make sure not to damage it. I couldn't believe my eyes. A full tooth! I began to shake a little with excitement. I pulled it from the earth and showed everyone. This only pumped them up even more. Although this tooth is rare for our area, we kept digging with no luck of finding another one. The rain began to come in so we cut the trip short but I've babied this thing around all day, picking it up to make sure it is real and I wasn't dreaming. I know it's no 4" tooth but for me, it may as well be. It's become an infatuation for me and the family, so much so I have been looking at planning a family vacation around fossil hunting. My 8yo has expressed alot of interest in finding a megalodon tooth. So, if you guys and gals know of a good place I can take the family to do something like this please share! Below are a few pictures of the things we have found over the past few months as well as my Carcharocles auriculatus tooth I found today.
  20. Been hunting teeth for some time now and I ran across these two things on my last trip that has me scratching my head. Any help in identifying would be appreciated! The items are #1 and #2. The last pic is of all the teeth me and the family dug. Thanks
  21. I live in the Arabian desert, near Jebel Hafeet. Yesterday I found a pavement tooth of an eagle ray. Today I found a mysterious fossil which looks like it might be part of the body and fins/wings of a ray. I appreciate that their bodies were made of cartilage and that is not usually preserved very well, but in some cases it’s possible. Any opinions would be most appreciated. Thank you so much.

  23. Ray teeth?

    I need help identifying this piece of dental plaque from a ray. Any ideas?
  24. Hello everyone, I am making a shadow box for my office; before I start doing the final groupings by species and attaching said groupings to the shadow box, I could really use some help. I have made my best educated guesses (using Jayson’s website for references), but since I am a novice, I know I’ve made several mistakes. Will you you please take a look at the attached pictures and let me know if I guessed correctly? If not, will you please let me know the correct answer?
