  1. I'm not sure if this should go in the native American section or not, so mods feel free to move it. I've seen mention that native Americans using fossil shark teeth as arrow heads and pendants and I've seen that they look actually like the tooth in question like where they put the string. That would be super cool if that's what this is. Thanks
  2. Shark Tooth Embedded in Bone?

    If this is truly what I suspect it is, it could be the most extraordinary fossil I've found to date. This was found at Bayfront Park, which is Calvert Formation. It appears to be some kind of bone, probably from a marine mammal. When I first found it, that's all I thought it was: a bone. It was only when I was back home from my trip and sorting through all my finds that I noticed something peculiar. There was something protruding from the bone. I couldn't believe my eyes. It was a fossilized shark tooth. I have always thought it would be incredible to find a fossil with tooth marks or even an entire tooth embedded in it, but I never thought it would actually happen! My best guess at the moment is that this is an ear bone from a small whale or dolphin that fell victim to a lemon shark, and when the shark bit the animal, its tooth was jutted into the bone. When the animal died, its bone fossilized with the tooth still inside it. My question for you is not whether or not the object protruding from the find is a lemon shark tooth; that is fairly clear. I am looking for confirmation that the fossil is indeed a bone, and would like to know what type of bone it is and from what animal. Since I believe this to be an extremely uncommon find, I am considering bringing it to the Calvert Marine Museum to be inspected by the experts there, and if they want to keep it I will gladly donate it. Thank you in advance. ~David (P.S. The tooth is only fully visible in the last picture)
  3. Hello, today I would like to offer this near perfect quality Chilean Mako tooth. It is about 5 cm, I’m looking for Dino or reptile teeth but feel free to offer anything. Regards, indominus rex
  4. Sharks tooth from Georgia

    here are some nice shark teeth I found last year in Georgia
  5. Puzzler

    Here is a tooth I have had for several years, not really knowing how to label. Found in Ernst East Quarry, Bakersfield, California ( mid. Miocene, approx. 15mya) I have read some topics on Physogaleus contortus symphseal mistaken for the Megachasma teeth, but this one doesn't seem to fall into that category. As you can see it has a huge root compared to the crown, zero serrations and in fact doesn't even have what you may call a "cutting blade" at all ( crown is oblong). 20mm from base of root to tip of crown. Crown is 8mm wide, 13mm long. I would like to finally label thus guy and am seeking your expertise on the matter. Thank you in advance for any enlightenment you may offer. @MarcoSr @Al Dente @siteseer
  6. California Tooth ID

    Any ideas on this little tooth? C. hastilis or something else. Found in California, Monterey Formation.
  7. Hello all, I found a small tooth (0.75 inches long) this week at Brownies Beach (Calvert Cliffs formation, Maryland). It was in the water along the shoreline, as the tide was coming in. I assume it's a sharks tooth, but I haven't been able to make even a decent guess at the genus/species from looking online at photos and lists of features. I would greatly appreciate any help identifying it! If the photos below aren't sufficient, please let me know and I'll try to take better ones. Thank you!
  8. The teeth in the photos are what I’m looking to trade. Interested in all sorts of fossils and willing to entertain trades abroad as well.
  9. Hi there, Hoping someone might tell me what species of shark this might be. Found on NC coast this weekend. Thanks so much!
  10. Opinions on these fossils?

    I have a small few things I'd like for you to look at and get your opinion on. What looks to be bone fragments. They span about 3-4 inches across this large rock.
  11. Fossil Identication Request

    Requesting help to properly identify some fossils I found this past week while walking the coastline of Myrtle Beach, SC.
  12. Odd tooth from South Florida

    While picking through some micro-matrix from South Florida (Cookiecutter Creek) I came across an odd little tooth just a tad over 1 cm long. The odd thing about it is that this little tooth has distinct side cusps like you might see on an angustidens (but without the serrations). Normally, the only shark teeth that I encounter in Florida that have side cusps are Carcharias taurus (Sand Tiger) teeth. I also came across a small tooth that looks to be an upper lateral position from this species with a broken and worn root. The top tooth almost looks like a tiny mako tooth with a relatively flat unserrated blade, but the side cusps are out of place and I can't quite place this tooth. I'm sure I've been at this too long today and I'm missing something. Anybody have a good guess as to the identity of this tooth? Cheers. -Ken
  13. Shark tooth from Japan (Hinoshima formation)

    Hi TFF friends, how are you? I would like to ask you few questions about a tooth I found last week in Japan. This tooth comes from the late cretaceous (Santonian) Hinoshima formation where I usually go. This formation yield about 13 different species of shark tooth, comprising Ptychodus mammillaris, Hexanchus microdon, Hexanchus sp., Notidanodon dentatus, Sphenodus sp., Echinorhinus wadanohanaensis, Cretalamna appendiculata, Protolamna sp., Squalicorax sp., Cretodus sp., Paranomotodon sp., Dwardius sp., and Synechodus sp. I found this tooth which looks like to be a Cretodus sp. but I would like to have a confirmation. In fact, I have already found Cretodus tooth at the same location but they looked a little bit different. To explain it simply, they just looked like Cretalamna teeth with fold on the crown. The tooth I've found last week, has a lot of long ridges (running from the base of the crown to half of the it) and is more "tougher" (round) than the previous one I have found. Can you confirm me or infirm me the ID? Last question: If this is a Cretodus tooth, how can we explain that this tooth has a lot of ridges but the previous one I've found have "only" fold? Is it pathologic or ontogenic? Thank you very much for your help. David
  14. Hello TFF members! I just put together a compilation video of finding shark teeth on roads here in Florida over this past summer. If you've been watching my other vids, you may have seen some of this already. Many miles were walked, much sweat was shed and lots of teeth were found. We got large megalodon teeth, a killer Parotodus (maybe the best shark tooth I have ever found), great whites and makos and a bunch of other cool stuff. Check it out if you get time and like watching fossil hunting vids: Here's some pics if you don't want to watch a vid: Great white shark tooth in matrix Juvenile megalodon. Megalodon tooth spotted from a moving vehicle on the road. Killer little great white...had to do a coin toss for this one since we spotted it at the exact same time. And my baby, a killer Parotodus that I also spotted from a moving vehicle.
  15. Unidentified shark tooth

    Hi I am a new member and hoping for some suggestions. I found this shark tooth at Sandy Hook beach in N.J. I have been searching online to try to id it with nothing conclusive. There are no serrations on the sides of the tooth however I am not sure if this is due to excessive tumbling in the ocean water. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  16. 26054-38060-1-SM.pdf Here is a paper by Itano and Lucas about a revision of Camyloprion Eastman, 1902 that includes new teeth found by Mark McKinzie in the Finis Shale member of the Jacksboro Limestone at Jacksboro's Lost Creek site.
  17. So I had bought from a certain online auction site some Lee Creek mine microfossil matrix a while back... I finally got around to looking over a little bit of it this evening. Attached are what I have found so far without any magnification.
  18. hammerhead shark tooth? Species and age would be helpful

    Dear Guys, Few months ago I found this tooth in mollusc matrix of Varena town, South Lithuania. Judging by growing orientation, I think it could be from Hammerhead shark but maybe someone could identify more accurate? Any help will be appreciated! Best Regards Domas
  19. Is it a shark tooth?

    I apologize in advance for posting before in the wrong area (I think). I’m a newbie to this forum but am already so excited about it! My family and I are avid sharks tooth and beach fossil collectors in Emerald Isle, NC. I found this in the late summer (pre-Florence) on the beach in the backwash. It has a shape very similar to other teeth I’ve found but the color and texture is so different! I welcome your opinions; hopefully it will help to settle our family’s disagreement on this one! Thank you, in advance, for your time and I look forward to participating in this forum!
  20. Is it a shark tooth?

    I found this late this summer in Emerald Isle, NC (prior to Florence). My family lives there and we are all avid sharks tooth and beach fossil collectors. We are divided as to whether this is a sharks tooth and I would love to hear some opinions! Thank you! Hopefully the experts here can help settle this discussion once and for all!
  21. Everything is dry and picked over around Northeast Texas but I decided to go hunting anyway. Luckily I found a nice shady creek to hunt. I found one nice Mastodon tooth cusp with great color and a couple of artifacts. My buddy found a few rough artifacts and one nice shark tooth.
  22. Is this a baby meg tooth?

    I found this tooth at point a dam, is it a baby meg? I really can’t tell..
  23. Hey everyone, I'm looking for a Cardabiodon tooth (or possibly a Dwardius) If you have one, please message me and we can make a trade! Will trade other species of shark teeth (I have a lot of different options), so PM me if you are looking for a specific species to trade!
  24. Today we started out at ramanessin but it was slow going so we switched to big brook and had lots of success. First two photos are maybe a ray or saw fish tooth or something? Still not positive on the mammal jaw but looks to be modern.
  25. Wonderful day at big brook

    I had a wonderful day sifting in big brook with my mom. Here is our haul. The yellow tooth is my favorite. Special thanks to @Fossildude19 @Trevor @fossilsofnj And @Woopaul5
