  1. ID help request - Various pieces

    Hello! I've been trying to identify some fossils from Aurora, North Carolina. My sister sent them to me, now that I have started collecting fossils again (after a LONG hiatus of 45+ years). Some I think I have done correctly, but corrections most welcome. I'm not too familiar with the fossils of this area OR Era. (Pennsylvanian fossils of Pennsylvania is what I have hunted/found). I've made the clearest photos I could (I am a bit shaky with the camera sometimes). Here are my attempts (and requests for help!) A: Sea Urchin Spine B: Lemon Shark Negaprion sp C (1,2,& 3): Tiger Shark - Galeocerdo (contortus?) D through J: Sand TIger Shark Tooth K: A tooth? A claw? I have no idea! L: Do not know M: Do not know N: Rootless Sand Tiger Shark tooth? O: I have no idea! P: A coral? Stromatolite? Q: I have no idea! R: Sponge Thank you for your attention. As I learn and study, I hope to be able to help in the future! I've been gathering books to study, and enjoy this subject very much! David Ruckser I have combined the photos into one; I can certainly upload individuals if needed.
  2. Nice Fall So Far in VA

    So, as some of you know Mrs.SA2 took a nasty fall at the end of September resulting in a broken arm and dislocated elbow requiring surgery to repair both. She's on the mend and healing well but has a long way to go. Over the last couple of weekends we've made a few trips to one of our favorite areas to do a little fossil hunting and help her regain her confidence being back outdoors. As usual, we've taken our buddy Trevor (@Daleksec) along on the trips. Mrs.SA2 has done quite well for herself on these excursions along the river. Here are a couple of photos of our finds from our 1st trip earlier this month. I found the meg. It's pretty beat up, but "a megs a meg" She found the cetacean phalange. I also found the 2 cow shark (notorynchus) teeth. Here are some from our 2nd trip this month. We love the hastalis colors. Photos of our finds from 3 hours hunting this past weekend in the next post. Cheers, SA2 / Mrs.SA2
  3. My Finds From This Summer

    Finds from walking on beach These are from another day at the beach right after a big storm
  4. Well we have a group of us heading to the Ladonia fossil park on the North Sulpher River. this will be our second time. Here are a couple of photos from our first trip. We also ending up with poison ivy
  5. Virginia Hunting with boat

    Howdy, I'm working out of Richmond for a couple years and would like to learn more about tooth hunting this area. I have a shallow running river boat with an outboard jet and complete set of scuba gear. Would like to find some not so publicly accessible locations to find shark teeth. I appreciate any advice or help. I'm also reviewing past posts on the subject but I'm learning things change year to year. Thanks in advance Billy
  6. FL Gulf coast trip mid-November

    Hi We will be traveling to Manasota Key for a couple of much needed pre-Thanksgiving days off . Work has been extremely stressful and I am counting the hours til I get to hunt all day on the beach. While I consider myself an experienced hunter here in Texas, my Florida hunting has never been more than strolling the beaches between Venice and San Pedro Island. I am itching for something more than the typical tumbled half inch tooth and the occasional ray plate. I'd happily put in some elbow grease, no pain, no gain. Of course I know of the Peace but as far as I am aware it's not quite the right time of the year. Does anybody have any suggestions? Especially after this active storm season I would think there are some good finds to be made. Any and all pointers are appreciated =) Thank you!
  7. Squalicorax ???

    I have recently purchased an associated Squalicorax tooth set from Gove county, Kansas. It is Coniacian in age. However, I have no idea what species it is. These teeth are too gracile for S. falcatus and S. baharijensis. Looks a little bit like S. volgensis, however teeth are too large for it. Any help will be very appreciated.
  8. Potomac Miocene

    What a cool day! A bunch of us did a beach clean up on the Virginia side of the Potomac River on Saturday and along with the trash, we picked up some of those triangle-shaped "litter" as well. @SailingAlongToo piloted his boat around to ferry us from beach to beach, and his wife who is still recovering from a broken arm joined us out there as well. By the time the day was over, the entire front of his boat was covered in trash bags that we filled up from about 3 1/2 miles of beach. We had a beautiful day to be out there and spied numerous eagles cruising around, and even one making a meal of a striped bass. Before I get to the fossils, I have to mention the coolest piece of trash that I picked up. As you can expect, there were plenty of bottles that has washed up on the various beaches. One of the bottles I reached down and grabbed had something in it, as I looked closer I noticed that there was a paper with writing in it. I opened it up and read a letter from a 4 year old boy named Levi who put his message in a bottle on January 11, 2016. The letter instructed the finder to call his mom or grandmother, so on my way home I did and chatted with a mother who did not know about the letter but was crying when I read it to her. I was glad that I made the call, it really made my day. Now to the fossils, we all found some nice stuff while we were out there. I wish that I took some pictures of the finds that the others had because there were some really coo things found. One woman reached down to pick up some trash and spied a root next to it...out came a beautiful Meg! I ended up finding a nice Mako when I tried to carry 8 bottles back to a bag and dropped one...right on top of the Mako! LOL! Some pictures from our adventure. Our eagle chomping down on the striper. I also have a video of this that I will try to post. Eagle tracks Jellyfish were everywhere, I blindly reached out to grab a piece of clear plastic that was in my peripheral vision and stuck my hand into a jellyfish...definite "eewww" factor! My haul for the day The tooth on the right was courtesy of dropping the bottle, the one on the left was the last tooth I found. Mako in a little drainage The message from the bottle
  9. Hi all, I wanted to start a thread for people to share their favorite fossils with amazing coloration. To kick it off here is one of my favorite shark teeth (a hemipristis from BV in Florida, miocene age). It is near max size for the species, just under 2" on the slant.
  10. Some time this November, I want to make a trip out to Post Oak Creek to hunt some fossils. I'm in Georgetown, TX, and I'm wondering if there are any good spots along the way that might be worth checking out. Might stop overnight in a hotel somewhere rather than trying to make the entire multiple-stop trip in a day. I'm hoping to find shark teeth, bones, echinoderms, and maybe some ammonites. Slabs with fossils inside would be really cool, too, maybe shale or something similar? Trouble is, I have bad knees, so I need areas that aren't too hard to walk through. I can't go clambering over boulders or on overly slippery stuff, and I can't climb up and down hills very much.
  11. I will start this out with three really cool patho teeth from the Lee Creek Mine in Aurora, North Carolina. These are all from the Miocene Pungo River Formation. First a small tooth, about 5mm wide 4mm long. I believe possibly Odontaspis Next a tiger shark, Galeocerdo sp., but I am leaning towards aduncus. and last an extremely pathological tooth that I believe is Carcharocles chubutensis, but I label it as carcharocles sp. Lets see what you have.
  12. Day off work

    So, got off work early yesterday so decided to walk my open field area 25 miles inland off of the South Carolina coast. I have learned, and please correct if I am wrong, that this area is Oligocene formation or sediment layer. So spent around 1.5 hours walking and picking up lovely finds. Just wanted to share. Most of them are Angustiden, but a mix of a wishful Meg piece, and a few great white bits. I intend on leaving more from now on the pieces that are broken to leave for others to find. I think we can all tell from the laptop, which is a small 13 " monitor. Biggest one is around 2 inches, thats my beauty with the root, tip, and cusps.
  13. Hey everyone, I'm looking for trip suggestions for this December. My wife and I recently had a little time free up and we have flight/hotel points to redeem. We'd prefer somewhere that's not super cold (we're from Colorado) but something that also has some fun things to do besides collecting, like hiking or exploring. I've been considering trips to NC, SC, or the Peace River. I'd love to hear from anyone who would have some suggestions for places where we can vacation and I can get out for a few afternoons to look for cool specimens. I'd be particularly interested in fish/shark tooth locations, but invertebrates would also be cool (especially ammonites, trilobites, etc). Let me know what you guys think - any suggestion is appreciated!

  16. Texas Creek Crawl

    just got back from vacation in Galveston with the family. Searched high and low for teeth and found nothing so had to hit the creeks closer to home. Hit a high traffic area of Post Oak Creek and did some crawling hoping to find some scraps and found surprisingly quite a bit. Hunted the first day for just a couple of hours and found quite a few P. whipplei, lots of shards and a Native American scraper that was the surprise for the day. On the second day I spent a short hour and a half and found several more P. whipplei a nice complete Cretolamna and two complete S. raphiodon teeth along with the normal shards. I also found a second little scraper just as I was about to leave. That is four scrapers and a point in the last three trips. Not sure why this creek seems to be turning up more artifacts lately but no complaints. We had rain yesterday and the creek has surely flushed up some new things so should be good for someone this week. Thanks for looking. Day 1:
  17. I wasn't expecting to get out today but luckily my work got done early enough that I could run over to the river and take advantage of a low tide. I usually go upriver but at the last second I decided to go downriver. I basically went for a speed walk, only stopping for the bigger teeth...though I would snatch up the small ones if they were near to the one I was stopping for. On my way back I ran into another fossil hunter and he quickly asked whether I was on the forum or not, I'm happy to say that I have met @Castle Rock! We had a nice conversation, I like running into forum members and being able to put a face to the name. Apparently he had gone out with @Boneheadz earlier in the day. Hey @Castle Rock, I left you a marker (arrow in the sand) to show you the path up, did you see it? Great meeting you today, let me know the next time you are in the area and we can get together for a planned hunt. I can't say it was a banner day but it was enjoyable to be out there for a little bit. Here's the results from today:
  18. Hi y'all, Here are the finds from 3 separate half day trips to Post Oak Creek during the first weekend of Feb and from last Saturday. One of those days was spent hunting a new to me part of the creek that seemed to have more trash and glass than fossils. That day I decided to make a move to a more productive part of the creek to collect some gravel that I had promised my nieces so they could do some fossil hunting at home. Also I collected some for myself. Last Saturday @Buffalo Bill Cody and I went hunting. It's was warmer and I noticed several bass swimming in the creek. I'll have to bring my fishing pole for the next outing. The week before last I went canoeing on the Llano River for 4 days where I had the pleasure of seeing some interesting fossils that I'll be posting below. Bare with me. I'm posting from an IPhone.
  19. Sharks teeth fossil

    Found along a river in southeast nebraska. Would like to know what shark the teeth are from.
  20. Hello everyone, this is Trevor. Today, 21 October 2017, fossil forum members bucky, frankh8147, Trevor, non-remanie, and Frank's brother, Shane, all went to an NJ Cretaceous stream to do some collecting. The weather was exceptional; still cool enough to wear a sweater but not extremely cold. The day was overall excellent for fossil hunting. We got everything and headed up a small tributary. The finds throughout the entire day were average or somewhat on the lower spectrum of things. However, towards the upper half of the hunt, Frank snagged a pristine condition plesiosaur vertebrae with his hands by feeling in the water. Anyone in New Jersey could heard his triumphant yell of pure elation. Additionally, at the end of the trip, Frank and Shane may have stumbled upon the outer cranial portion of a mastodon skull (Pleistocene), which was apparently just propped up against a rock in the stream. I didn't get to see it but he will surely post it. Well, I shall post my finds. I went to another brook the other day for a little while, that is where the colonial pipe end is from (I did not find it on this trip).
  21. Florida Meet Up?

    Hi all, i will I'll be in the Tampa area next Thursday October 26. I was hoping someone would be willing to meet up and go collecting. I am willing to drive a bit for a good hunt. Also, I know that the Gainesville area is famous for its shark teeth. Are there any laws or rules that I need to be aware of? I do have my Florida fossil permit for this year. i look forward to hearing from some of you!
