  1. Shark Tooth Identification

    Hello everyone, I’ve been going through my entire collection of shark teeth from the last couple of years and have found a tooth that I cannot identify. This tooth is from aurora, and It is only about 1 cm long. My first guess is thresher shark but I’m not sure. What do you all think it is? Thanks!
  2. Mystery Shark Tooth

    Hi all, I recently went on a trip to Brownie's Beach in Maryland in search of Hemies, and I came home with some pretty good little teeth and a few decent sized ones. However, there was one tooth that I found I could not identify. I am not really sure what shark it belongs to, it sort of resembles a sand tiger but the root is very robust and thick. Im more or less lost as to what it could be. Wishful thinking, but I thought it might be a baby megatooth shark or a mako or something along the lines of that. Its a long shot, but I thouht i would ask to see if anyone else could Identify it, haha!
  3. Identify Shark Tooth?

    My grandson found this, what looks like a fossil shork tooth this weekend. Found in Puerto Penasco, Mexico it is
  4. Was told this was a tiger shark

    I was told this was a Tiger shark tooth found inland United States ans was a couple million years old. Now I'm not to keen on shark teeth but I don't think the information is correct. If anyone could shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated thank you.
  5. Took a jaunt out to Shark Tooth Hill area, Ersnt Quarries to be specific, yesterday. Not too productive, but a few decent Makos, a little (7mm) fish vert, and the one inquired about here. It has the look of a Tiger shark of some sort, but is only 11mm across the root (cube it's on is 1" square). It has serrations on the cusp(let), distal and mesial sides. I don't recall the Galeocerdo Contortus I've seen having all three surfaces with serrations. It looks a lot like a Hammerhead, but I don't see serrations on the distal side on the crown on it. Can someone tell me what this is? Many thanks. Cheers.
  6. Hello all. I'm curious to find out if anyone can help identifying a fossil I found on the shore line of North Myrtle Beach while I was on a family vacation last week. Thanks
  7. Peace River shark tooth ID help

    Hi all, I finally got to the Peace River for my birthday yesterday and found about 20+ teeth and then lost my mesh bag in the river! I only hope some kid who had bad luck finding teeth finds it. Of the ones I had left, I cant ID the one in the pic. Also put in the pic the tiniest tooth I've ever seen! I think it's a lemon shark? Any help IDing the bigger one great! Thanks in advance! - Jodi

  19. Not had a chance to get out hunting much for a while but had a trip out to a new site the other day and found some brand new stuff I wanted to share! Just outside of the little coastal town where I stay in Fife, Scotland there's a Lower Carboniferous stromatolite bed known for its beautiful stromalolite formations in a hard cream colored limestone which can be cut and polished for use in jewelry. This stromatolite bed lies on top of Lower Carboniferous lava's and has been correlated with another, 30m above a bed called the Burdiehouse Limestone which I do a lot of my collecting from. This puts its age somewhere in the late Asbian. These stromatolites grew in a freshwater lake that had formed on cooled lava flows. Its a challenging and dangerous site to collect from on an extremely steep and crumbly wooded slope below cliffs, very quickly though I started to find beautiful fragments of the stromatolite bed as well as a completely weathered out example and lots of split-able limestone with the occasional fish scales, freshwater bivalves and microconchids. The real prize of the day though was a beautiful and perfectly intact Petalodont shark tooth just lying on the surface of a massive block of the stromatolite bed, this stuff is so hard and not bedded at all so the luck involved in this being broken out like this is staggering! Not sure of the ID of the tooth but think it may be a Petalorynchus sp. Its 19mm from the tip of the crown to the end of the extremely long root. This was the first thing I picked up, a small stromatolite that had weathered out of the formation almost perfectly intact.
  20. Identification help

    Found a shark tooth today on the outer banks, any help with identification? Thanks in advance.
  21. Hello everyone. This is my first post here so I hope everything is in order with the images and forum pick. I am a highly active coin collector, and started moving into fossils about a year ago. I found this tooth at Howard’s beach in tarpon springs FL. It looks to be a fossil shark tooth due to the grayish black appearance of the root and that Nice serrations are still present, but the root also looks to be busted up. Also, the root is darker in person, and colored a nice grey. It is less than 1CM long as well. Regardless, it’s one of my favorite pieces and I would love to know of the type of tooth and possibly the age. Thank you for reading. -HT
  22. Shark tooth ID help

    So I bought an inexpensive 2 inch Angustidens tooth from the auction site that shall not be named. The seller generously sent a couple of free teeth as well. One of them has me quite perplexed. It is a fairly large tooth, around 1.6 inches. It has some nice serrations on it and a pretty distinct looking root. The only thing I could think of is that it looks a little large Thresher shark teeth. I would certainly be surprised if the seller had included a Giant Thresher shark tooth with my purchase so I doubt that is what it is. I really could not find anything else that fit but I am sure somebody here will be to enlighten me. I have no information about where it was collected but I can email the seller. Any help would be appreciated
  23. Hi all, For whatever reason, I never got around to posting this. After a relatively unsuccessful day at Bayfront Park back in 2018, my dad showed me this tooth, unsure of what it was. He said he had found it while sifting in the creek that runs under the bridge near the entrance of the park. I had never really bothered trying around that area because it was so far from any cliff exposures, but I suppose he proved that some of the best finds may be where you least expect them. The second he pulled out this tooth, my jaw dropped. It is a FLAWLESS cow shark symphyseal. I hadn't had a single one in my collection until then. I've never seen a better symphyseal than this one, not in a museum or anywhere online. It's absolutely perfect, with exquisite symmetry and phenomenal preservation. Undoubtedly the best tooth my dad has ever found. Although I was a bit jealous that he found it and not me, I was at the same time ecstatic because all of his finds go towards my collection. This beauty is one of my most prized teeth, as I am yet to see a more perfect specimen. The pictures do not do it justice in the slightest. It was found a while ago, but I thought you all would still like to see it. Enjoy!
  24. Shark tooth from Nieuwvliet

    Hi all, Here’s a cool little shark tooth I got from a super nice lady during the fossil fair in Harderwijk last weekend. She found it on the beach of Nieuwvliet-Bad in Zeeland (Netherlands). I’m trying to ID it but having some trouble doing so... looks most like a Striatolamia macrota but the shape of the tip of the crown seems off, and mine doesn’t have any cusps (and doesn’t appear to have had cusps now worn off either). Anyone have an idea? The tooth’s age is ambiguous, from Pliocene to early Eocene (all ages are found on the beaches of Zeeland), but seeing that she mostly found Eocene species nearby (ie Otodus auriculatus) this is one has a slightly higher chance of being Eocene too. Thanks in advance! Max
  25. All
