  1. Strange little Eocene tooth

    Hello Everyone! I found this tooth a while back at a Ypresian, Eocene site (Nanjemoy Formation, Woodstock Member.) It puzzled me for a while, I assumed it was a weird Otodus or something until someone IDed it as a Cretalamna at a local fossil club. Apparently they have their last gasps in Maryland’s Ypresian. However, I was then informed by some people familiar with the roughly contemporaneous London Clay that it looks more similar to Parotodus pavlovi. That species is not yet described from the formation, and despite reaching out to a few collectors who have collected this formation extensively, I cannot find anyone else with one. What say you all? Scale in CM
  2. Is this an Angustidens shark tooth?

    I compared my shark tooth to different shark teeth images on google and think that it came from an Angustidens shark? Am I correct? Thanks guys!
  3. post oak creek shark tooth

    Hey y'all, this is a shark tooth I found a couple months ago in post oak creek. I initially thought it was a cretodus, but now I'm having second thoughts. The 4th and 5th pictures are cretoxyrhina vraconensis and dwardius woodwardi, respectively. Thanks!
  4. @caldigger post on finding two pieces of the same tooth reminded me of the tooth I found in New Zealand many years ago. The site is closed now, so I don’t think there is a chance of finding the root. But is there anyone on here that could accept this challenge? I’ll pay of course! Tooth overlying picture of complete tooth of same size and position showing the missing root. The slightly trickier bit is on the back where the root/enamel transition is partially missing. Scale bar = 2 inches total. A few more images of the tooth;

  6. To all the shark expert of the forum. Is there any method or features to look for in order to determine if a shark tooth comes from a juvenile or an adult. I know that in a species well documented or largely collected, it can be easily determined by the size of the tooth. However in the case of a not well- documented or isolated tooth, is there a feature that could hint for the development stage of the specimen? Thank you, David
  7. Shark Tooth Identification Help

    I recently found this shark tooth on the beach in Wild Dunes, South Carolina. Can anyone help me identify what kind of shark this is from? Age of the tooth?
  8. I managed to get in a few hours before the rain hit at the North Sulphur River Texas. My buddy found a rare Globidens tooth. I found a high quality shark tooth and some coprolite.
  9. Shark Tooth ID Needed

    Hi there, Just hoping to get identification of this shark tooth I found in the ocean of Venice Beach, Florida. Hopefully these pictures aren’t too bad. Thanks for any help!
  10. Cretacous NJ Odd Shark Tooth

    Any idea what species of shark tooth is this? Found on a gravel bar in NJ Cretaceous stream. It stuck out to me as its unusual shape and white coloring popped out, especially with the serrated edge.
  11. Shark tooth for ID

    We hunted our favorite Carolina beach recently and I found this shark tooth. We thought that it might be a Great White tooth, but after reading a recent post about the slight curve, thought we should ask before labeling it.
  12. A noob's first attempt

    Hi all, On a recent trip to Sharktooth Hill in Bakersfield, we had a heartbreaker when the shovel struck what turned out to be our biggest tooth, a 2"+ hastalis or planus, and busted the root. So I figured this was as good a place as any to try my hand at fixing it up. In hindsight maybe I should have tried first with something I cared a little less about. Here it is after gluing. I then purchased a "earth color kit" of Apoxie sculpt at did my best to match the color. It was easy to work with, but not so easy to get the color just right since I could only mix pink, natural, orange, and bronze. I think I did ok, not great. Then I had an idea for trying to get a better color match. I found a piece of root from another partial tooth from the same site. It was a close color match. So I ground up some of it into powder and applied it to the still-pliable Apoxy sculpt. Improvement! I'm pretty happy with the results although I know there's plenty of room for improvement. Any advice for future attempts will be happily accepted. Thanks! Scott

  16. Hemi confirmation ID

    Hi. I believe this is hemi. My confidence on identifying is not the greatest. Getting there. Learning more every day. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks Mark
  17. Shark Tooth ID

    I found this shark tooth at Big Brook Preserve in Monmouth County New Jersey. I was thinking a lateral goblin shark tooth as it seemed to match up best with the middle picture on this website: http://www.fossilsofnj.com/shark/goblin.htm Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
  18. Calvert Cliffs Shark Tooth

    Hi all, I collected this tooth from Matoaka Beach in the Calvert Cliffs area of Maryland. It's clearly not a meg tooth but it's pretty large compared to most of what you find. There appear to be no serrations. I was thinking Carcharodon/Cosmopolitodus hastalis, the Narrow/Giant White Shark, but I'm just not sure.
  19. Shark tooth help

    I found this tooth a few years ago at caspersen beach while living in florida any help in identifying it would be greatly appreciated.
  20. Aquarium shark tooth identification

    I got this shark tooth necklace from the Odysea aquarium and was told it’s from the bottom of one of the aquariums, though the cashier didn’t know what kind of shark it’s from and I’d love to know!
  21. Pristine Peace River Tooth

    This tooth is an outlier in my collection because it’s the only really nice Peace River fossil I’ve ever found... but it’s a beauty. Pronounced bourlette and serrations all around, and that lovely tannin brown *chefs kiss*. As an Aurora guy, I’d call this Carcharhinus obscurus. Does that prognosis still hold for Florida? thank you all!
  22. Shark tooth identification?

    My uncle got me this shark tooth necklace from Hawaii but doesn’t know what kind of shark it’s from and I’d love to know!
  23. Shark tooth identification needed

    It's been a couple years since I last posted on this forum. Life got a bit more hectic due to health issues and a work promotion. Recently though I've finally had more time for fossils. I found a shark tooth today on the way home from work that I'm not familiar with. The tooth was found in a pile of limestone large gravel, sand, and chunks of chert that had been brought to the site from an unknown but local mine. I just happened across the pile unexpectedly and decided to stop even though it was drizzling out and I was hearing a bit of thunder. Other fossils I found in the same pile are shell castings, sponges, bryozoan, and a few echinoids. The location is the Ocala area of Marion County, Florida. I believe this part of the Ocala limestone and is eocene in age. While the root is a bit damaged and there's a chip in the blade the cusplets look to be in perfect condition. I'm leaning towards this tooth being a mackerel shark but it's not an exact match. Can anyone correctly identify it?
  24. Help ID possible shark tooth?

    Hi first timer here. Was with my 84 year old father looking around on Bonita Beach near Naples FL, and this was the first thing I picked up to try to show him what shape we were looking for. Wondering if this is indeed a shark tooth, and possibly what type? I have searched pictures but mostly find “ hook” shaped teeth of this small size. any ideas or suggestions are most welcome!
  25. North Carolina Tooth ID

    My dad's friend found this in North Carolina recently, and he needs some help identifying it. I'm pretty sure it's not a Meg, but it might be a Dusky or a Mako.
