  1. Mystery Shark's teeth

    Hello, These are also from our hunt in the Aquia formation of Charles Co. MD. Sharks of the world didn't give me much insight. The only species that I noticed where the enamel extends out on to the roots like this is the extinct goblin shark Anomotodon novus. I definitely have some teeth from that species I think but these are substantially different. These are larger, more robust and the have the cool extended enamel and bumps/cusplets on the shoulders of the labial side. Any thoughts?? (ruler in mm and squares 1/4") Kate
  2. Stratolamia striata?

    Hello, I am new here and new to fossil identification. These are shark teeth from the Aquia formation on the Maryland side of the Potomac. They come from Charles County. I have shark teeth of the world and so my IDs are based on that and the internet. I think all of these are Stratiolamia striata based on the grooves. Ruler is in mm and squares are 1/4" on each side. The last picture with only 2 teeth nearly touching seem different to me in that the striations don't extend very far up onto the teeth (unlike the others where they cover much of the crown. I am not sure if S. macrota also occurs at this site?? They are supposed to have striation only near the root. I have more from this trip but limited time so it will have to dribble out. Thanks for your time, Kate
  3. Hi everyone! I recently acquired some dolphin & shark teeth, but they weren't ID'd so I was wondering if some of you might be able to help me out if possible. The first are a set of small dolphin teeth found in Hoevenen, Antwerp in Belgium (Miocene, 15 - 10 mya) And I was wondering if they could be ID'd to down to genus? I've read Eurhinodelphis is a common find and that there are quite a few more named and unnamed species to be found there. The other fossils that I hoped to be ID'd are 5 tiny shark teeth from Oosterzele (Lede formation), Belgium (Eocenen, Lutetian, approx. 44 million years old) I've searched this website as they has a database with I believe all the species found there, but I am not confident and skilled enough to ID them properly. http://users.skynet.be/belgiansharkteeth/Lede formation/Oosterzele set.html My best guesses are that the first 3 teeth belong to the same species and the most common at Oosterzele, which are worn down Otodus auriculatus teeth. As for the other teeth I don't really know, so I really would appreciate some help and input. Thanks in advance!
  4. Water was a little high but I found a few things at the North Sulphur River Texas.
  5. Help me identify these teeth

    We just got back from Florida and found a TON on teeth on Manasota Key beach. These are some of the interesting teeth we found that I can grab quickly. Any idea on what they are? I couldn't find a tape measure for scale but they are all roughly the size of a thumb nail. Thanks!!
  6. Hi so Iv'e posted a picture of this tooth before but I thought it was a great white but now after seeing other teeth on instagram I'm not sure. Is it a Great White or Carcharocles Angustidens and depending on which one it is than what does that mean for my hunting spot and what it has to offer in the future gravel I dig up?
  7. A week ago today, I took the day off work to hit one of my favorite sites, a roadcut above the Illinois River in Oglesby, Illinois. This cut exposes the Pennsylvanian LaSalle Limestone member of the Bond Formation and produces abundant brachiopods as well as occasional other fauna including gastropods, cephalopods, coral, trilobites, and shark teeth. The weather was perfect, sunny but not too warm, when I pulled up. The cut is a somewhat unstable slope of cobbles and boulders of varying size, almost all with at least some fossils in them. To get up to the slope, you have to hop across a small ditch with running water. I have a good sampling of the common brachiopods from here, so I am looking for unusual fossils when I go now. I was very happy to quickly find a piece of trilobite as I started to search the rocks at the base of the hill. (I will put pics of everything I brought home in a response post) One interesting find that I was not able to bring home was this Linoproductus brachiopod with some shell preserved and a really pretty dendritic pattern on it- it was very delicate and firmly embedded in the middle of an ~80 lb boulder. I was able to stay for 4 hours, and I felt like I gave most of the site at least a quick look. I am very happy with what I found- I was able to check off many of the rarer things I was looking for, including shark teeth, a trilobite, cephalopod material, and a brachiopod with spines attached, as well as some nice crystallized brachiopods. I will post all of my finds below.
  8. Arrowhead and sharks teeth

    Found on SW Louisiana beach in the surf. Any info anyone has about any of it would be awesome!! Thanks in advance!!
  9. 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!
  10. Picked up this beautiful pathological Cuban Meg Tooth a couple days ago. It measures 5.25” with a killer twist.
  11. Looking to get an ID on this little guy...is it just an extremely worn sharks tooth stripped of its enamel? Whale tooth? Porpoise tooth? Found on the beaches of Wilmington, NC, in dredged material. It was definitely something at some point in time!
  12. ID for this shark

    Hi there! This is my first post at Fossil Forum, hope this information could help in getting some help to identify this fossil. It was found at a quarry in Vallecillo, Mexico (northeast part, less than 100 kms from Laredo, Texas). The fossils found here belong to the the Vallecillo member from the Agua Nueva formation, aparently from late Cenomanian to early Turonian. The full length including the separate vertebrae is aproximately 29 inches or 74 centimeters. The longest tooth is aproximately 1.4 centimeters long. I was only able to post a single picture, hope it helps.
  13. Fish teeth? Whale teeth?

    Found a few of these teeth on the beach (dredged material) in Wilmington, NC. They seem awfully small to be whale teeth. Anyone?
  14. ID - Fish Plate?

    Looking to get an ID on this little guy. I’ve found one or two before this one. Some kind of back plate perhaps?
  15. Small shark tooth ID Highcliffe

    Small shark tooth found in Highcliffe clay. I find these almost impossible to find, any tips?
  16. Hello, Yesterday we went on a fieldtrip to the carbinoferous of Soignies Belgium, see other topic: I had the luck on my side and found 2 shark teeth. Helodus and/or Psammodus? So this morning i started the preparation I forgot to take pictures at the start of the prepp of this one There was only a little glimp to see at this one, so i was pleasantly surprised The second one (it's a huge one) i started but not finished yet
  17. SC thresher tooth ID

    Hi, i have this thresher tooth that was found in the same area as some typical A. grandis teeth from South Carolina. I’m leaning towards grandis for this one based on size, bit it has a symmetrical shape that none of my other grandis teeth have. I am not familiar with grandis anterior teeth, perhaps it that? Thoughts and opinions appreciated. cheers!
  18. Cretolamna sp?

    Hello all, I purchased two small Moroccan shark teeth and would like to nail down their species. I think they are either Cretolamna appendiculata or small Otodus obliquus teeth. Please let me know what you think.
  19. Sharks' teeth from Belgium

    Dear teeth and bones' experts I need some help to ID a lot of sharks' teeth that I got from Belgium. 90% of them have no ID. Here is the overall picture of the lot (with numbers of groups): The seller put them in separate packages, so I took the pictures as he grouped them. This is the most numerous group no.1 - to the right on the first picture:
  20. Upcoming Trip to Summerville

    Hello friends! I am going on a trip to Summerville to go find some fossils! The problem is that I had no idea where to look. Can anyone please comment or send me some specific locations where you have had luck finding sharks teeth (megalodon specifically)? I would really appreciate it if you all would help me out! Thanks!
  21. Not quite sure what this one is. Found it digging for Sharks teeth near Venice, FL.
  22. Coming home from a meeting on Saturday I stopped by a planned future addition in my friends neighborhood. I only had about 20 minutes and wasn’t too high on the prospects of the spot, so I thought at the very least it would be a nice hike in nature. Well this turned out to be a very fruitful 20 minutes. I found my first ever shark teeth not in a creek or near a lake, just right out in an open field. I knew they were out there somewhere, but they just always seem to be wherever I’m not lol. Actually worked out quite well too. I’ve been needing an extra Cretalamna tooth (first photo) for my shark tooth display I use in my program. And who would have guessed that I’d actually find one. Now maybe next time I’ll find a big ol Cretoxyrhina waiting out there for me next time haha.
  23. Hello Everyone, My friends and I are visiting New Orleans this weekend and I was wondering if there are any places nearby that we could find any shark teeth? Thank you you for any help!
  24. Tiger Shark Teeth ID

    Hello. I purchased some tiger shark teeth and was hoping to get some ID help. The teeth come from various locations in Florida. The largest tooth is 1.25 inches (~3.2 cm). All the teeth have complex serrations. I believe the first row (#1-6) come from Galeocerdo mayumbensis. I am unsure about the second row and think they may be either Galeocerdo cuvier or Galeocerdo mayumbensis. Below are front and back pictures of the teeth. Thanks for any help.
  25. Need help to identify please

    Found this on the beach at Cape Canaveral National Seashore
