  1. Here are three gorgeous megalodon teeth that @RJB collected over the years as a fossil vendor/collector. He asked me to restore them for him, and I was happy to take on the challenge. Here are the photos of the before and after. I hope you enjoy! -Matt
  2. 3+ Inch Benedeni Club

    I started the 3 inch + Mako club a few years ago and now have the winning ticket in order to create the 3+ inch Benedeni Club after 2 decades of searching. I'll go ahead and save you the song and dance on how RARE a Benedeni this size really is. If you happen to have a 3+ or larger Benedeni, please feel free to post your picture and join this very exclusive Club. Measures: 3.03''
  3. Gray shark tooth

    A tiny tooth of an Abdounia minutissima. Bought from an old collection. The site at which it was collected, the Egem quarry, is now unfortunately closed. I have had some confusion to the family: on fossilworks.org, in the order Carcharhinoformes, it says that Abdounia is a subtaxa, while it's already a genus. It goes straight from Order to Genus, and it doesn't cite any family. If anyone knows more about this, please feel free to send me a PM and I will edit the post.
  4. South Florida deformed shark tooth?

    I found this tooth yesterday and I’m a unsure of what it is. Maybe I’m overthinking what kind of tooth it is, so I figured I would ask for another opinion. It I’m thinking it may be a Tiger Shark Tooth that Maybe slightly deformed. Thanks
  5. Serrated Cusp Shark Tooth ID help

    Hello all! I have another fragment I need help identifying. I know that fragments generally are super hard to get a positive Id, but I feel this one is different. It is serrated and has a cusp. I found it at Brownies beach Calvert Cliffs MD USA
  6. Shark Tooth Feeding Damage?

    I found this bronze whaler with odd looking tip damage. Is this ancient feeding damage or a more modern break? Thanks!
  7. Here is a bag of fossil shark teeth I've accumulated. I am getting more interested in non-shark fossils by the day. I'm interested in any offers. There are otodus, cretolamna mako, megalodon and a few other kinds of teeth in the bag. I am happy to trade them all as part of a bigger deal, or some at a time in smaller deals. I also have a really cool unrestored megalodon tooth that measures about 4.5 inches on the slant. It looks like it has no enamel left, but it does. The enamel is just very black. You can tell if you look at the little spots where enamel has chipped away. Again, all offers are welcome and I'm not picky about any particular type of fossil.

  9. Shark Teeth Post Oak Creek

    From the album Post Oak Creek

  10. This morning I finished picking through some collections of micro-matrix I made earlier this year for a project I was working on. I was lucky enough to be able to meet-up with Jack, @Shellseeker to visit a collecting spot on Little Payne Creek where I was able to collect a nice bucket of micro-matrix. The fossils in this feeder creek to the Peace River often exhibit much nicer coloration than the grayscale fossils found in the Peace River itself. I came across a tiny shark tooth (8.5 mm x 5.5 mm) that has me stumped as I've not seen anything quite like it before while micro-matrix picking. You'll see it has lovely caramel cream coloration (looks tasty enough to eat ) but the thing that I found unusual about this tooth is the presence of tiny side cusps. The only species I encounter here in South Florida that has side cusps is the Sand Tiger Shark (Carcharias taurus) but the tooth shape is entirely wrong for this species. The shape is generally consistent with Mako (Isurus) but not with the cusps. The age of the material from this location--Peace River Formation (Miocene-Pleistocene) would seem to exclude something like a baby Carcharocles auriculatus or C. angustidens and though I've heard of megs showing primitive cusps on baby teeth, the shape does not fit my concept of Carcharocles. I'm stumped, which is good because this means there is a learning opportunity for me here. Anybody have any thoughts on this tiny caramel beauty? Cheers. -Ken
  11. Cretaceous Shark tooth ID

    Found this tooth in N. Texas. 8mm in length. Eagle ford, upper Cretaceous. My guess would be small Archeolamna but unsure. Thanks for any help.
  12. Hurricane Irma Great White

    I believe this beauty is a great white but need some help on a specific ID from the experts! I sure was happy to find it!
  13. Shark tooth nebraska

    Found in southeast nebraska along a river. Help identify what shark it’s from.
  14. Shark teeth at Hungry Hollow

    Found the teeth today at Hungry Hollow. In decades of fossil hunting in the area, I have never seen evidence of sharks. The teeth seem modern and could have been left there. The stratum is Devonian based upon my simple understanding. Did sharks coexist with the coral, brachiopods, crinoids and occasional trilobite that are commonly found here?
  15. This was one of the most difficult restorations i have ever done for color. The more unusual the color of a tooth, the longer it takes to restore, but also the greater the reward. I porbably spent 2-3 hours painting this one. I hope you enjoy!
  16. This is my favorite restoration ever. I always find it easier to restore the root, so this was the perfect tooth for me. I have never seen a tooth with such incrediblle lines on the back of the enamel. some of the lines go diagonally to form a sort of grid. Let me know if you have any idea how that happened. I hope you enjoy!
  17. Great day but need a little help

    Found some great stuff yesterday. Not sure what the long bones are from. I appreciate the help in advance. Thanks!
  18. Hi Everyone, I recently came into possession of some megalodon teeth that are absolutely perfect for restorations. They started out as 3/4 complete teeth. This one ended up being 6 11/16 inches which is my biggest tooth ever! It has some really nice serrations on it all of the way around. I did restorations to the tip, severe enamel peel on the front and back, blade near the bourlette, and lots of reconstruction of the root.
  19. Here is another big monster sized tooth I just restored. I hope you enjoy!
  20. My shark tooth collection

    This is some of my shark tooth collection. I do not have enough stands to display them all.
  21. Fossil Tooth Help

    Well, I know we just finished talking about tooth of mine, but I have another I need some help with. It's rather odd looking, but is so unique, hopefully it isn't hard to figure out. Thanks everyone.
  22. These first two fossils I picked up while hiking mountains in the negev desert in Israel. I think one of them is a sea shell with a barnacle on it. I'm not sure about the other tubular one. The final one is what I believe is some sort of mako.
  23. One More Tooth Id

    Hello everyone! I just want to take a moment to thank every single person who has given me advice and assisted in IDing my teeth fossils. You all are great. I have one more for you to look at, and I honestly have no idea. Thanks in advance!
  24. I just restored this tooth. Complete before picture included this time as per the request of @Macrophyseter! I hope you enjoy. I am also goign to maybe try and do a one row jaw of megalodons and of great whites. I have enough great whites and will hopefully have enough megs soon.
