  1. Thought I would go to the river before it got too hot later this month. Did not have a lot of time so went to the Fossil Park north of Ladonia, TX. I usually try and avoid the park because there is always a crowd but the river is so wide there it gives you a lot of square footage to hunt. Shark teeth are not rare at the NSR but I had only found a few in my trips. Mostly the skinny black variety and nothing very big. This one was just laying there waiting to be found and made a very good photo opportunity. Nothing else much but any slow day at the river beats any day at work! Any thoughts on the type of shark this is from, is about 1 3/4" overall. Thanks
  2. Shark tooth

    Hi friends, I didnot post any thing since some time ..it is to hot to go fossil hunting but i went any way and found this large shark tooth it is 4 cm long and 2.5 cm wide at the root > Can you kindly help me identify what shark sp.it is Thank you, very much.
  3. Shark tooth fragment found on beach

    I’m eager for some help identifying this shark tooth fragment I found while beach combing on Hilton Head, SC. I’ve found many, many sand tiger shark teeth here over the years, but this is by far the largest. It’s only a fragment, but the size with the huge nodule on the root is so very different from what I usually find on the beach. Is this indeed from a type of sand tiger shark? I’d love to learn more about it.
  4. Shark tooth from Bone Valley

    Hi all, I bought this nice small shark tooth at a market in Middelburg, Netherlands. It's from the Bone Valley, FL, USA. From (I think) the Peace River Formation, Miocene, 9 mya. Anyone know what species it could be? If more pictures are needed let me know! Thanks in advance, Max
  5. Shark tooth from Zeeland

    Hi all, I bought this small tooth at the market of Middelburg (Netherlands). It's from somewhere in Zeeland (south-west Netherlands). The age is either Eocene (rare) or Mio-Pliocene. The sellers didn't know from which beach exactly in Zeeland it is from, which is a shame, but doesn't matter too much because basically all the teeth from Zeeland are from the same sediments. What species do you guys think this is? I know it is quite worn, but I think the condition is still good enough to make a good ID out of it. No signs of serrations. One big cusp, and the sign of a small one on the other side. If any more pictures are needed, let me know! Thanks in advance for your replies! Max
  6. Hello everyone! Today, I do not have an identification request, but I do have a request for some specific pictures. I have been having a hard time finding side view pictures of posterior juvenile megalodon teeth. If any of you have these tiny megs and don’t mind snapping a side view picture for me, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Mystery shark tooth

    Found this in the Pungo River Fm of Lee Creek (Miocene). I'm pretty sure it's a Carcharhinid, and more than likely a lower tooth, but that's all I got. Half-inch in length, smooth cusp (even under micro), strong foramen, curved root base. Maybe there is a slight notch in the blade (left side, labial view), but I can't be sure that's not a nick. My first thought was Lemon Shark, but the tooth is too triangular, and the base of the root has a very definitive curve. Then I thought hammerhead of some sort. Photos in order: Lingual, Labial, side Ideas?
  8. I saw this Hemipristis tooth for sale, and I’m falling in love with it, but I was wondering if the blue color of it is a normal occurrence. It is from Bone Valley. Thanks in advance!
  9. Shark Tooth ID Help

    Hello all, I found this tooth at Brownie’s Beach last year, is this a fossil common thresher? Thanks!

  16. I picked up a new poo (at least I'm thinking it's poo) at our favorite auction site. The only think I know about it is that it was found in Mountain Creek, Texas. There is a shark tooth and bivalve impression on the bottom. I'm hoping this might be diaagnostic. Can someone identify the shark tooth and bivalve impression? Any idea what formation these are from? As always, thanks a bunch for your help!
  17. Two Florida Beach Fossils

    I found both of these teeth this summer on Amelia Island, Florida. The tooth is strange, the way the root is positioned (maybe tiger shark?), and the other item looks like some kind of mammal tooth? This time period is not my area of expertise, I think they range from 8-30MYA. The shark tooth is about 1.5cm long and the other item is about an inch(2.54cm) across.
  18. Blue Springs, MS

    My wife and I made a brief trip this weekend out to Blue Springs, MS to poke around the Coon Creek Formation. We only walked around for ~1.5 hours, but we didn't get skunked. There was quite a bit of material to be found after the recent heavy rains, but the best finds of the trip were my first crab, and a particularly nice Squalicorax tooth! I've gathered a decent collection of similar teeth from the nearby Frankstown fossil park, but this one easily beats them all. As the temperature increased, we were even greeted by a rather well behaved Dekay's brown snake. Enjoy the pics, Caleb
  19. Upper Cretaceous Shark Tooth

    Found this today in creek bed gravel near Bowie Maryland (near Old Crain Drive). Upper Cretaceous Severn Formation. Any idea? Interesting areas of white coloring, between tooth and base? I know base is missing. Does anyone know what causes the white banding?
  20. Thoughts? Bite Marks?

    Possible predations? Thoughts?
  21. Benedini?

    My friend has had this tooth for a while and it's from Antwerp Belgium. It is for sure not a mako, so what is it? All information would be helpful
  22. Carcharocles Confusion

    Found on N Topsail Beach, NC, in October of 2015 (not long after a dredging and sand replacement project). Longest edge is 6 cm. Various "authorities" have offered conflicting id's. I don't have many fossils worth showing anybody and I'd like to be able to tell visitors definitively what it is. I did read the various threads on this topic in the forum and looked it up in other sources, as well. However, I found researching Carcharocles auriculatus vs Carcharocles angustidens much like watching a pack of hound dogs turned loose on a truckload of rabbits released in the forest. Would appreciate opinions from those knowledgeable on the current theories regarding this (apparent) debate. Or is it just evolution of opinion?
  23. Shark Tooth

    I found this sharks tooth at Harleyville Quarry in South Carolina. It is very, very small. Does anyone know what it is? It dates back to the Cenozoic.
  24. Fish Scales? Plus Shark Tooth

    Apologize for the poor quality pics but I struggled photographing these to show any detail I suspect they are fish scales but that is basically just a guess If anyone wants to take a shot at IDing them go for it The first two pictures are of the same fossil and the third picture is a different one-the second specimen was very difficult to photo cuz its basically a round disk with a raised hump in the middle Lastly if anyone could tell me what type of tooth this is that would be awesome so far its my most complete 'big' (meaning bigger than a fingernail lol) tooth
  25. Meg-tastic Day

    Hello all! So, I recently took a trip to the Aurora Fossil museum in NC. I hunted for some teeth while there, and truly enjoyed the exhibits as well. I found nearly a 3 inch fragment of a meg. The main reason I was there, however, was because I was told that to get my little meg Identified for certain, I needed to get it looked at in person. So I took it there asking for an ID by Dr. George, the fossil museum educator and I was finally given the 100% certain thumbs up that my little tooth was from a megalodon and they were kind enough to give me a little case to put it in. I also found lots of other teeth too! Check it out sometime, it’s awesome there.
