  1. Shark Teeth and Misc.

    Figured I might sift through some shark teeth and misc. aquatic creature fossils I have stored in a couple boxes and post them here and perhaps learn a bit more about them from more knowledgeable members. These aren't arranged in any order, unfortunately, as I really don't know much about sharks and am still learning, so if anything stands out, please let me know! I must also apologize for the poor photo quality-I don't have any fancy set ups and this is just a quick perusal of what I have and throw it up here on the forum kinda night, haha. Scale is in mm/cm; I have listed the names and countries for each specimen, but where I have typed labels in the photos, more details can be read by the photo to save me some typing. Otherwise, details are typed out. Hope y'all enjoy!

  8. Next week I'm headed for Summerville to hunt for megs, and this week at Jekyll I'm getting a small taste of the toothy joy that is hunting at Summerville! This is the first of possibly multiple trips to the shark tooth beach here on Jekyll Island. Got some pretty nice things, too! Trip 1 Family photo;

  11. Differentiating Rays?

    Hi. Each time I visit Calvert Cliffs I manage to come home with several more "better" specimens of ray plates. It would be great if I could sort them a little better I know identifying ray plates is difficult, so maybe this is a lost cause, but I thought someone on TFF might have some knowledge on this better than what I've found on the internet. Frankly, when I look at photos of ray plates in text books and internet resources, they often look the "same" to my eye. Aetobatis sp. is easy to pick out - it is V shaped. No worries on those ID. Does anyone know a way to differentiate the other genus? How to tell between Myliobatis sp. and Aetomylaeus sp. ? The above fragments all look different, so are there any diagnostic features that could help in IDing them? Thanks for any insights.
  12. For the last couple of months I've been pretty staying on a short leash close to home. You know, money is pretty tight these days and theres not much extra to spend. Saying that t's sure good having a selection of Eagle Ford areas and an Atco member site very near the house. We've explored those often. My 6 year old grand daughter has started her own shark tooth collection. I put her on a few and then she started spotting the ones my worn out old eyes could not see. Today I loaded her and my hunting buddy Mark in the car and for once we were not headed to a fossil hunting site but to meet a fellow fossil hunter and author Roger Farish. Roger invited us to his home in order that we could buy a couple copies of his book The Collectors Guide to Fossil Sharks and Rays fron the Cretaceous of Texas. Roger and his wife showed us some of their great fossils, minerals and artifacts on display in their home. She also collects and has some excellent finds in the glass case. He showed us how to use his book in great detail and looked at a few fossils we found and had questions about. He went over some other maps and publications that he thought we might find useful. His wife even entertained my little granddaughter. He let her pick out a sea urchin for her collection. What nice people and I can tell you that his book is very well written and jammed full of information. It's layed out in an easy to use format. I am sure glad to have a copy of it in my hands. We learned a great deal today talking to them and with this publication we will certainly continue to learn. He even thought he might have an extra copy of The Pennsylvanian Fossils of Texas he could hook me up with but he was down to his one and only copy. Dang it. I'll sniff one of those out one of these days and maybe I'll have a few bucks in my pocket to buy it with when I do. Roger is a member and advocate of the DALLAS PALEONTOLOGICAL SOCIETY. He invited us to join them on a field trip Aug 17th. I don't know if I will feel very comfortable doing that until I am able to join and I may have to put that off a while longer. Economics again. If this summer ever gets over things will be better so I am looking for an early fall. I also love to hunt fossils in the fall, cooler weather vs July and August. It's true we have been provided with some days of beautiful unseasonal weather this summer and I have certainly taken advantage of those days.

    Hi, my name is Marco Gulotta and I am a new member of this forum. If you can, please check out my family fossil website to see that I am a serious collector. I'm "Dad" on the site and "Mel" and "Marco" are my two sons. I'm from Virginia, USA and fossil hunt a lot in the eastern United States. This is the link to my family website. I am mainly interested in shark and ray fossils. I am especially interested in shark and ray species that have the smaller teeth (micro fossils). Most of my micro fossils are not yet posted to our website. I'm getting a better system to take photos and will post over one hundred new species to our website by early 2010. I do not like to trade teeth. However, I am very interested in trading matrix that contains shark and ray teeth. The matrix that I can trade will contain from 20 to 40 species of shark, ray and fish specimens from that site. I prefer to trade for matrix that is already processed if possible where all you have to do is look through it and find the specimens. It saves a lot of money on shipping and makes it easier than having to repeatedly wash the matrix with water or vinegar or hydrogen peroxide. The matrix that I can trade is already processed and ready to look through. I can trade matrix from: Paleocene, Selandian/ Thanetian Stage, Maryland Eocene, Ypresian Stage, Virginia Miocene, Burdigalian Stage, North Carolina If you are interested in trading matrix or getting together for a fossil trip, send me an e-mail to mgulotta@wildblue.net. I'm semi retired and have plenty of time for fossil hunting. Marco Sr.
