  1. Fossil (Ukraine) ?

    Hi to All! Help please with identification of this fossil. It must be or from Neogene or Cretaceus. Thanks in advance!
  2. 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.
  3. Mystery item found in western ND

    Hi everyone, I came across this object earlier this evening and I was wondering if anyone could help me figure out what it is. It was found embedded in a soft rock (soft enough to scrape away large chunks with a pocket knife) with just a small cross-section exposed. It first grabbed my attention because it appears round and hollow in cross-section, and was a different color and harder than the surrounding material. The rock it was found in was at the top of a hill, and located in western North Dakota, just barely across the border from Montana. My friend and I tried to brainstorm what it could be, but everything we could think of didn't quite seem to fit. If anyone has any ideas, I'd really appreciate it! Also willing to accept that it might just be a weird rock... Thanks! (More photos to come in the comments)
  4. piece of jaw?

    Hello everyone. I tried to find some shark teeth in the Korkynskiy coal waste heap. I found this in the sand . I hope u will understand me
  5. Hello, I am completely new and inexperienced in the amateur palaeontology world. I am planning some trips to search for fossils on the beaches in The Netherlands. What are the things I really need to have? I can think of a sieve and a shovel. But what are the best things to wrap found objects in? And what sizes of sieve should I buy and where from? Basically, throw everything at me you know, I'll take it in (eventually) Happy Hunting! -Jacob
  6. What kind of tooth is this?

    This washed up with the surf in Panama City Beach Florida 2018. I cannot find what kind of tooth this is anywhere. Its cold and hard like a tooth. Please help me identify the type and era it came from.
  7. I feel certain this is a sand dollar.

    I was surprised to find this amongst the prickly pear cactus alongside Cook Slough (a branch off the Leona River) in Uvalde, Tx. Can anyone confirm it as a sand dollar? It has the markings.

    Me holding a perfect fish vert found on the Zandmtor, still a bit covered in wet sand.
  10. Sand Samples

    I figure a lot of us here share the same interests, one of the things I do is collect sand samples from places I go. I have a few extras I would like to trade. These are each 3 dram vials, approximately 11mL per vial. The first is - Black Sand, Punaluʻu Beach, Big Island Hawai'i collected on a trip in 2009 - 3 available. second is - Topaz, Topaz Mountain, Millard County Utah, collected in 2011 - 2 available (I Know it's slightly larger than sand but it fit in my vials!) Third is - Garnet Sand / Purple Sand, Emerald Creek Idaho, collected in 2014 - 5 available Last one is - Volcanic sand, Amalfi Coast, Salerno, Italy collected in 2015 - 5 available (supposedly this is rock from Mt. Vesuvius that is broken down by the waves over the years.) I also have sand and rocks from the Jurassic aged Morrison Formation in Morrison, Colorado. Let me know if there is any interest for that, I can post pictures as well! I would mostly be interested in growing my sand collection, but I am open to fossil trades as well! Let me know what you have and we can work something out I'm sure! I may want a couple of sand samples for the topaz It is not easy stuff to collect or clean! Hope everyone had a safe and happy new years!!! -Blake
  11. I just came across this article and thought it was very interesting. I hope it's okay to post the link. I also realize it's old. I had never given much thought to what a grain of sand looks like. Some of it looks like the specimens I've seen on here, only microscopic. Makes me want to check out my local beach and find a high powered microscope. http://www.boredpanda.com/magnified-sand-grains-microscope-photography-dr-gary-greenberg/?media_id=sand-grains-under-microscope-gary-greenberg-4
  12. Another Interesting Fossil!

    Hello fellow fossil-finders! I am back with a new fossil to be identified! Last Saturday I went to the Delaware Bay Beach with my cousins. We were looking for small fossils that were buried in this huge pile of rocks right at the edge of the water.The first fossil was found almost instantly. I believe it is honeycomb coral. Take a look. Next, I found something that I couldn't identify. It could be a barnacle for all I know. It has small grooves on the black side of the rock, seen here: Here is another view at the other side: Like always, if you can identify what this is, please tell me. Thanks! -Con
  13. Good evening! I've been going through and reasearching some of my summer trip finds this year and I am hoping for a little help! I am trying to figure out what the teeth in this picture are. This website has been incredibly helpful and has provided me with some think I knows but a few of them have me really stumped. They were all collected in Virginia and North Carolina. PLease feel free to correct my educated guesses. The larger teeth have smooth edges. The only one that has some seration is the small, wider one at the bottom-middle of the picture. If you need any close up picture I can certainly provide those as well. I thought the ones on the left were sand tigers but because of the shorter, wider root and "fatness" of the dentin I am considering otherwise. Plus they are not flat with the little upturn toward the end that I always distinguish with sand tigers. I have no clue what the ones with the dark greyish and brownish grey coloring are. (This would be the one closest to the 2" mark and his friends the left at 9 and 10 o'clock. Everyone's help is GREATLY appreciated!!! Thanks again and happy hunting!! Joyce
