  1. I'd like some opinions on one more Megalodon tooth, please. It's 5.8". This one I am suspicious of because it looks a lot more polished than most of the teeth I've seen that were found in the Atlantic Ocean. The claim is no restorations, in any event, so some more eyes would be great. Thank you, Bellamy
  2. Megalodon Tooth Locality Identification

    I have here a Megalodon tooth. The one who sold it to me mention it's from Florida. I'm interested to know the locality because I'd like to acquire Megalodon from every major site. This looks Bone Valley to me, based on the coloration. Could anyone confirm if that's enough to say so?
  3. Great White Tooth Restoration

    I had a banged up Great White tooth; the root was almost completely missing, and the top of the crown was, too. I decided to restore it, mostly for fun. A bit of epoxy putty and paint later, the root is completely reconstructed and I reckon it looks pretty decent.
  4. Sharks tooth?

    Found this fossil on beach at Gulf Shores, AL. I think it's a sharks tooth, maybe old? Need help with ID. Thank you.
  5. Dalatias licha Java

    From the album Odd and Rare Shark Teeth

    Kitefin shark tooth from North Central Java, Indonesia. Late Pliocene- Early Pleistocene in age. This is the only Dalatias tooth I have personally seen/heard of from this locality.

  9. Galeocerdo cuvier Java

    From the album Cenozoic Sharks

    Large (Almost 1 1/4”) North Central Java Tiger Shark tooth. Late Pliocene- Early Pleistocene. Love the coloration on this tooth; truly one-of-a-kind.

  13. Megalodon Restoration

    Hi everyone, I posted yesterday about restoring my Megalodon tooth. I'd like to first and foremost thank the community for their help in answering those questions, and special shoutouts along that vein to @Reptilia and @mattbsharks. This is a 3" tooth from South Carolina that was around 85% complete. It was missing parts of the sides, and the tip. I completed the restoration today. Overall I'm happy with it. To me, it looks like it's been restored. That could simply be because I'm the one who worked on it. Nevertheless it was fun, not to mention great experience for next time! Supplies used: * Acrylic paint (Black, Brown, White, Tan, and Golden Brown) * Gloss finish * Epoxy putty (PaleoPutty is hard to find in Canada; I used JBWeld High Heat, which allows 1 hour before setting) * Sandpaper (220 grit) * Respirator (sanding safety!) * Paintbrushes (soft, made of the finest imported mammoth fur just kidding extremely generic) * Knife (detailing) Here's the tooth before I reconstructed it:
  14. I was at the beach during low tide when I went in the shallow water and was looking for various stones when I came across this object. I’m not sure if it is a shark tooth encased in a rock of some sort, or just a rock? I think it is only a rock but the contours of this object could signal that a fossil is inside. Does anyone know what this could be? Thank you everyone.
  15. UK Shark Tooth

    Hi everyone, I have here a shark tooth from the United Kingdom Eocene. It wasn't given to me with much more information. It's around 8mm and unserrated. Is it possible to narrow down a species?
  16. Carcharocles Aksuaticus or Auriculatus?

    Hi everyone, I have here a tooth advertised as Carcharocles Aksuaticus. It's 5.5 cm, and supposedly found in Kazakhstan, which would support that identification. They state it's Middle Eocene. However, I'm not so sure about this identification. It appears to be fully serrated, which would instead suggest to me Carcharocles Auricalatus. I've been looking for one of these for a while, and would love to make sure it is what it's advertised as before I buy it. Anyone know?
  17. Shark Tooth ID Mississippian?

    Hello, please help ID this shark tooth that I found years ago in a road cut on SR 37, close to Oolitic, Indiana, south of Bloomington, IN. from tip to tip about 7mm and size of the root from side to side also about 7 mm. The other fossils we found on that road cut were the crinoids, blastoid, brachiopods, etc., Missiissippian ear? You can see the crinoids, etc embedded next to the shark tooth. What kind of shark tooth is it? Thank you.
  18. Location is in Missouri The area is dated to the Pennsylvanian Formation: Muncie Creek Shale I was cracking Open some Concretions I found and this Came out of one! Unfortunately not in One piece. I was fortunate to find almost all of the pieces, including the tip, but do not know what adhesive to use Never the less I would like to know what species this is from! I have found various prehistoric fish parts from the rock Pile this has come from, Such as teeth from Eugeneodontida and Cartilage. The tip
  19. Not certain on this one

    Found this guy at the beach today. Haven’t found one like it before, and I have a hunch on what it might be but the cusps make me unsure. Doesn’t look like there were any serrations. At least I don’t see remnants of them anyways. Similar root structure to that of a benedini. Any ideas?
  20. Identification

    Found this in a creek behind my house in Northeast Mississippi. Have always found shark teeth and buckets of exogyra but have never seen anything like this one. It’s about 5/8” long. Any help would be appreciated.
  21. Location Missouri Found in limestone that was blasted out by construction workers The area is Pennsylvanian on the geological map I have also found prehistoric fish teeth in the area along with Brachiopods, Crinoids, nautiloids and horn corals. I was not a 100% if this was a fossil or just a natural formation in limestone. I only say it could be a Pennsylvanian shark crusher plate but I am not 100% sure Sorry for not having a good size reference, I have very little measuring tools, and did not bring it to the site I found it in, there will be a ruler measurement of the hammer below I was not sure if it was biological in origin but the ridge makes me question, and those could be possible pores at the bottom? In all honesty I do not want to make assumptions XD
  22. Location: Missouri Geological map states that the area is Pennsylvanian Found in a rock pile left by construction workers that blasted out the rock. I have found a few teeth in the area such as Petlodus, Orodus, and a few others. Previously posted on r/FossilID they gave some good insight, but I am curious to what other enthusiast think. I know its some sort of Holocephalan but I was told it could be something from Eugeneodontida I have also found another fossil near it, but i did not want to assume they were from the same shark, or if it was from a wild more modern animal Size reference, with right side having flash on while the left does not.
  23. Location: Missouri Local geological map dictates that the area is Pennsylvanian Found in a rock pile left by construction workers that blasted out the rock. I posted a few of these teeth onto r/FossilID but I have not gotten any good responses to the ones below! So I made an account to show my as of right now unidentified specimen! I have found a few shark teeth in the area, such as Petalodus , and a few teeth that look to be from Eugeneodontida. These are by far my smallest shark teeth, and I was very fortunate to find any!
  24. Carcharodon hastalis

    Hi everyone, I have here a tooth being sold. The merchant identifies it as Carcharodon hastalis. Based on confirmed photos of Carcharodon hastalis, I have many doubts. My main reasoning is that the angle between the start of the root and the rest of the tooth seems far too steep. Carcharodon hastalis, to me, seems to have rather straight edges; this one appears way too curved. This is why I believe the merchant may have misidentified their tooth. It's 19 mm long, and supposedly found in Chile. I'd appreciate any confirmation, and apologies as these are the only two photos provided by the merchant.
  25. Please help identify!!!

    Can someone please help me identify this shark’s tooth? It’s 1.25” long. Found in Ocean Isle, NC. Thanks!
