  1. Hi everyone, yesterday I recieved a lot of shark teeth, 20 of which came from the Egem Clay, Tielt Formation, Egem, Belgium that date back to the Ypresian, Eocene. The teeth are very small sized so I tried a macro lens to take pictures (I apologize for the not always clear images), and I believe most belong to Physogaleus secundus. But I wanted to share my thoughts on the ID's of the teeth and see what your imput would be as I am not an expect on Eocene shark teeth. Tooth 1: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 2: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 3: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 4 Physogaleus secundus Tooth 5: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 6: Physogaleus secundus or Galeocerdo? Tooth 7: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 8: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 9: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 10: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 11: Abdounia minutissima or Scyliorhinus sp.? Tooth 12: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 13: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 14: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 15: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 16: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 17: Physogaleus secundus? Not sure, looks a little different in morphology then the rest. Tooth 18: Physogaleus secundus Thank you in advance!
  2. Hi everyone! Today is received a bunch of unidentified fossil shark teeth found in a now closed sand quarry in Lede Sand, Lede Formation, Balegem, Oosterzele, Belgium (Eocene, Lutetian, 44 mya). I was hoping some of you might help me out with confirming the ID's of the teeth. I have some idea's what the ID might be, but I am not entirely sure about most. Tooth 1 & 2: Definiatly Sandtiger teeth with fine stiations on the crown. That makes me believe that these are probably Striatolamia macrota Tooth 3: Same goes for this one, I also believe this might be Striatolamia macrota Tooth 4: My favorite tooth of the bunch, I am doubting between Brachycarcharias lerichei or Hypotodus verticalis (Upper lateral) Tooth 5: No stiations and a worn cusp 3 mm away fro the base of the crown Hypotodus verticalis? (Upper anterior) Tooth 6: Hypotodus verticalis? (Lower anterior) Tooth 7: Either Hypotodus verticalis or Jaekelotodus robustus Teeth 8 - 11: Brachycarcharias lerichei? Tooth 12: Not sure about this one, maybe Macrorhizodus nolfi anterior tooth or Parotodus sp.? Tooth 13: Looks closest to Xiphodolamia ensis Tooth 14: A tooth with cusps and striations Striatolamia macrota? Tooth 15: small cusps and striated Striatolamia macrota? Tooth 16: I have not really a clue which one this could be. Tooth 17: either Odontaspis winkleri or Brachycarcharias lerichei Tooth 18: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 19: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 20: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 21: Physogaleus secundus Tooth 22: Not sure about this one either. Could it be Jaekelotodus sp. or Paratodus sp.? Tooth 23: Striatolamnia? Tooth 24: Striatolamnia macrota Tooth 25: No sure either it has a weird root and no cusps, maybe Macrorhizodus praecursor? Tooth 26: Brachycarcharias lerichei Tooth 27: Sand Tiger, but which? Tooth 28: Odontaspis winkleri or Carcharias sp. or Hypotodus verticalis? Tooth 29: Brachycarcharias lerichei Tooth 30: Brachycarcharias lerichei Tooth 31: Brachycarcharias lerichei That were all of them, I hope I wasn't too far off with some. I look forward to reading your imput. Thank you in advance!
  3. Wilmington cretaceous fossils

    Hi guys, I thought I’d give you a bit of background first, Wilmington quarry (bovey lane pit) was a quarry located in Devon that closed many decades ago. It was well known for its vertebrate remains but due to strict access, there isn’t too much material floating around, even in older collections. anyway these fossils come from the Wilmington sands member of the grey chalk subgroup, upper chalk anyway I can’t really find any literature on it so I’ve based my id’s on the gault clay which is only slightly older, feel free to correct me 1. squalicorax primaevus? You you can see faint serrations on it so I’m not sure 2. The serrations are a lot more pronounced on this so I’m really not sure 3.cretoxyrhina aft. vracanoensis? 4. not sure at all 5. I have a lot of these, maybe anoemodus? 6. may be too fragmentary but worth a shot, I have a lot more broken teeth but felt these were most diagnostic 7. ptychodus decurrens? thanks for your help
  4. Potomac River Micros

    I recently brought home a gallon bag of Potomac River gravels (Paleocene, Aquia Formation), and have been searching through them for micros using my new digital microscope (the quite reasonably priced Plugable USB 2.0 Digital Microscope, which several others on TFF have recommended). I've found a number of shark teeth and have tentatively IDed many of them, though would appreciate corrections or confirmations, as well as thoughts on the unidentified ones. The tick marks in all of the photos below are millimeters. Thanks in advance for your help! 1. Abdounia beaugei 2. Galeorhinus sp. -- half the tooth is missing so may of course be unidentifiable 3. Squalus minor 4. Another Squalus minor 5. Megasqualus orpiensis 6. Triakis sp. 7. Possibly Premontreia degremonti? 8. Possibly Odontaspis winkleri? 9. No idea 10. Unidentified sand tiger 11. Unidentified sand tiger 12. Unidentified sand tiger 13. Unidentified sand tiger
  5. Here are my son’s finds. Turns out he found more than me and had better representative teeth. He had a real good eye on finding them, even without the strainer pan. My “readers” would not let me do the same. That is my excuse, lol.
  6. Slow day on the beach, not finding much of anything, when right before I turn around to head back I see a perfect 4” Meg sitting in ankle deep water! Total trip maker!

  8. My Best Megalodon Tooth Yet!

    Hi everyone! This is my first post here on the forum in what feels like forever. I'd like to be active here again, and thought there was no better way to kick it off than showcasing my meg tooth! Some of you may have already seen the tooth on my Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube, but I wanted to make a post on here as well. I found the tooth last week along Calvert Cliffs. It's approximately 4.1" slant height and in near perfect condition. It even has that iconic Calvert Blue color on the crown that I love so much! I've been dreaming about finding a tooth like this ever since I started collecting a few years ago, and my dream has finally come true! Check out the pictures below and the YouTube video if you'd like to see how I found it. Hopefully the first of many great finds this year!
  9. A lot of what I learned from the trip, was learned here on the Forum. Thank you very much!! Went 1/2 of a day on Saturday, and 1/2 Day on Monday. 5 hour drive from South Texas but worth it. Made the trip with family, they have finds of their own. Not sure of what I have found here. Any help with identifications would be appreciated. The shark teeth are in rows of 8. Part 2 and possibly Part 3, will be posted later plus our first trip to NSR!!

  11. Chippokes State Park in Surry VA

    Hello ! just wondering if anyone has ever been to Chippokes State Park Plantation in Surry Va. I have been there about 6-8 times haven’t had much luck there. I’ve found probably only 10 teeth at that location. Can anyone share their finds from there? @HoppeHuntinghave you ever been to Chippokes? If so have you had much luck there?
  12. Great Day at Matoaka

    Recently, I haven't been having tremendous luck along the Calvert Cliffs, but I headed down to Matoaka Beach again yesterday and was rewarded with one of my best fossil hunts to date! I arrived around 10am, a couple of hours before low tide, and the Chesapeake Bay was as still as I've ever seen it in the year since I started fossil hunting. A little wave action can often be helpful to kick up fossils, so from the top of the cliffs I wasn't expecting much. But as it turned out, the water was extremely clear, which helped me find more submerged fossils than I usually find, and there were extensive exposed shell and gravel beds along the beach. Here's my first shark tooth find of the day--nothing out of the ordinary, but a good condition Carcharhinus sp. Less than an hour in, I found this nice whale tooth (my best so far) tumbling at water's edge. When you find a trip maker early on, it's a good day. And then I found a Meg (or probably a Chub)! It's missing most of the root and part of the right side, but this is my best one to date. The Meg was soon followed by this huge Hemi. It has a bit of root erosion but still-sharp serrations and measures over 1.4" -- roughly the same size as the biggest Hemi I've found to date. I love when there's a big ol' shark tooth just waiting for you on top of the sand. More to follow...

  14. Richmond ,NW Queensland ,2020

    Hello All this is a wrap up of our finds from our Richmond trips 2020 This post is about two trips combined where I visited the same location which is Richmond , NW Queensland Australia. The dig site is a public dig area which contains Cretaceous marine material from the Toolebuc formation. This site is well known for its abundant fish, shark ,marine reptile bones and rare bird/ pterosaur fossils. Growing up in the North Island of New Zealand and I have been collecting fossils since I was a kid however fossils from vertebrate animals are exceedingly rare in that area (Except Shark teeth) therefore my knowledge of vertebrate fossils is very poor. So, going out to Richmond which has abundant vertebrate fossils is a dream come true I have learnt so much over the last 3 years heading out there. The first trip was in July which I did with my partner and kids and the 2nd trip was in October which I did solo due to the extreme weather at the time. Due to the weather which was 42C and threat of severe storms I located the area I wanted to dig and did most my work at night with lamps, there were also less flies at night which made it more pleasant. During the two trips we found several turtle bones which was exciting and unexpected, it wasn’t the kind of marine reptile bones we had in mind. We found a small ichthyosaur tooth and a neural arch. There are layers of material known as fish mash which contain large amounts of small fish bones. Amongst this we found a few larger fish bones and a fish tail. My partner also found the largest and first sharks’ tooth of our trip she was very happy about this. We collected some of this material which we took home and broke up and sieved for shark teeth and any other rare or unusually specimens. Working alongside my 11 year old son we broke up and processed the fish mash material where we found a few smaller turtle bones and sharks teeth our best finds were 3 johnlongia teeth these are usually rare so we were good finds, the third tooth which he found he was able to ID the tooth which was great to see how much he has learnt. Also goes to show how much better his eyes are than mine as I missed it. Lastly, I would like to thank everyone on the forum who has given me advice and helped me ID fossils especially Mike D’Arcy without your help we would of never made these finds thanks a lot mate. Cannot wait to get back out there. Finding the dig site before dark, yes the silly looking mask is required to keep the flies out. The dig site at night. My wifes tooth. I will put more pictures in comments
  15. 2020 best finds

    I was fortunate enough to find many nice teeth during 2020. These are some of either my nicest, favorite, or somewhat uncommon finds from my searching at Big Brook, NJ. These finds are late cretaceous (~65 million years old). Sources for identification: http://www.njfossils.net/cover.html Fossil Shark Teeth of the world, by Cocke The first picture are 4 of my largest and most complete goblin teeth (Scapanorhynchus texanus), all found on the same day! I think it had rained overnight, though there was no rain in the forecast. I think this along with unseasonably high temperatures led to bit of erosion. Picture #2: Mackerel teeth Left to right, first is Cretolamna appendiculata (lata?) and the latter two: Archaeolamna kopingensis. Mackerel teeth are some of my favorite due to their shape and cusplet size. Picture #3: A branchial tooth from an early drum fish (Anomaeodus phasolus). More photos will be uploaded in a comment.
  16. I’ve had Big Brook and Ramanessin on my shark tooth hunting list for a while and finally made it up to both today. It’s a 6-hour roundtrip drive from where I live and with the days still pretty short this time of year, I had originally planned to spend my limited time just at Big Brook. After an hour-and-a-half of mostly striking out on shark teeth there, however, I decided to head over to Ramanessin, which both @Bob-ay and @PaleoNoel had recommended. Luckily, the two spots are only about 10 minutes apart, so I didn’t waste much time in transit, and I was rewarded with much better gravels at Ramanessin than I’d found at Big Brook. Some pictures of my trip and finds are below. While I’d hoped to find more intact shark teeth in the Cretaceous streams today (nearly all that I found were partials), all-in-all, I had an enjoyable trip and found a decent variety of things for my first time in the area. I look forward to returning! I parked at and entered Big Brook via Hillsdale Road. Unfortunately, there weren't a ton of exposed gravels there today (I was walking in the direction of Boundary Road, though I stopped about 2/3 of the way there). My first fossil find of the day: Belemnitella americana. These are pretty common and I had a couple from Big Brook already via a trade with @butchndad but this was my first belemnite find ever! I found this Enchodus petrosus fang on one of the first decent gravel bars. It measures 36 mm long and turned out to be my find of the day. This was the only (mostly) compete shark tooth (it's missing the very tip) that I found in my hour and a half at Big Brook. I believe it's a small Cretalamna appendiculata. I only found two other fragments of shark teeth in the time I was there. Photos from Ramanessin coming up...
  17. I’m thinking about heading up to NJ tomorrow for my first Cretaceous hunt, and would love any advice from more experienced members, both generally and for this time of year (other than dressing for the cold of course). I was thinking Ramanessin as I’ve read here that it’s better for shark teeth, but I’m open to Big Brook as well if you think it’s better for a first trip. Along the Calvert Cliffs I mostly surface collect—is that also an effective strategy at Ramanessin and/or Big Brook, or is sifting likely to produce better results? Any advice on where to enter/park would also be helpful. If I do go to Ramanessin, I’ve read that there’s limited parking on Holmdel-Middletown Road across from the elementary school (I’m assuming parking at the school itself will be a no-go since it’s a school day, though I’m not sure if they’re doing in-person classes). Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
  18. A few micro shark teeth

    Hey everyone! Back in June I got a huge bag of matrix from Florida that was abundant in tiny shark teeth. I've been struggling to identify them since they are so small, but for Christmas I received a digital microscope so I took a few shots to see if you could help me identify them. I'm sorry if the shots are too blurry, I'm still learning how to use the microscope. The matrix is either Pleistocene or Miocene, I'm not sure which. The squares are 5x5 mm.

  22. My neighbor and I are both getting ready to make some dives off of Venice, Florida to find some shark teeth. My neighbor just moved in, and I'm only recently certified, so we were wondering if anyone could share some GPS coordinates of places to make our first dives in Venice. He already owns a boat so taking a charter seems like an unnecessary expense. Any help would be great!
  23. Shark Tooth Hill Matrix

    I was very fortunate to obtain some loose matrix and chunks of matrix that I need to break down. I really have only been working on the loose matrix so far. It has not m.uch but has been extremely productive with amazing teeth. This is the first time I have gone through matrix from this area and the colors are amazing. The matrix is absolutely loaded with so much great stuff. Most of the items I have found so far are firsts for me. Enjoy the pics! @JBMugu I have barely scratched the survive with the big chucks of matrix but these two verts came out of it. They cleaned up nice!

  24. Hey everyone, i've just yesterday returned from another four day fossil trip to Beaumaris: a coastal suburb in Melbourne, Australia with fossiliferous exposures of the Beaumaris Sandstone Formation. The fossils are about 5.5 million years old (latest Miocene) and comprise an extremely diverse range of both marine and terrestrial animals. A great overview of the Beaumaris fossil fauna is provided by this PDF, for those unfamiliar with the site: https://www.bayside.vic.gov.au/sites/default/files/beaumaris_fossil_book_museum_victoria.pdf In short, everything from sharks, rays and bony fish to whales, dolphins, seals, birds, echinoids, gastropods, corals, bivalves and others can all be found. It's almost like you need a checklist when collecting here, to mark off the faunal groups that you find one by one. Which makes the collecting rather exciting as you never know what might turn up! Loose fossils can be kept, but the cliffs and foreshore are protected so no excavating or digging of anything in situ is allowed. But this is fine as most fossils are loose on the beach or adjacent shallow seafloor. Lots of people that collect here do so by snorkelling the shallow waters just offshore, and i also brought my wetsuit, snorkel and fins on this trip to search underwater which was very fun. As well as fossils, the waters are rich in modern marine life and it's fascinating to see them up close. The snorkelling and beach collecting proved very successful! The location: Marine mammal bones (whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals): A selection of indeterminate bone chunks. Small pieces of bone are fairly common finds. A small mammal vertebra (caudal?), probably from a dolphin or porpoise. Shown in front and side views. Bony fish: Right and left fish lower jaws, probably from the same species, but found separately so they're not associated. What luck though to have both matching sides! Although the left jaw is from a smaller individual. Crushing toothplate from Diodon formosus. Continued in the next post... (sharks, rays, invertebrates)
