  1. Bawdsey Trip - Tooth ID??

    Headed down to Bawdsey in Suffolk for a few hours. The beach has built up loads covering up the best big teeth grounds, still managed to find a few. Got the Striatolamia macrotas from the bottom of the shingle ridge and also a fish vertebra? (Can anyone confirm). The rest of the teeth were all from the red crag layer. Also found a possible cow shark tooth which i have never found! (Please say it is!!!) And some other fossil, i have found a lot of these previously but never as large. Apologies i cant take any better photos due to using my phone! If anyone can help with identifying these that would be marvellous! Thanks for reading guys and girls!
  2. Anyone seen the new paper on the possible causes of megalodon extinction? Haven't had a chance to read more than the abstract yet, but looks interesting: https://peerj.com/articles/6088/ @Gizmo
  3. Megalodon tooth?

    I’ve had this tooth for a while. Is it a megalodon tooth?
  4. Isurus sp. "in situ"

  5. New Creek, new adventures

    Had a doctors appointment a couple of weeks ago and as I was driving home I drove over a bridge that sparked my attention. I saw the access was fairly easy to the first couple and sand bars, and being dressed business casual I needed easy. I always keep my rubber boots in the back of the FJ and made my way down for a quick look. The area is Texas Cretaceous Eagle Ford so I knew the odds were good, but I have hunted other creeks in the area and been skunked. I was there for about 15 minutes and about to head back when I spotted a familiar sight. There was a large Ptychodus waiting to be picked up. i headed home and looked at google maps to see if I could find any other access. I found another spot that also looked promising and a couple of days later on the way home from work, I again threw on the boots and hit the couple of accessible piles and was surprised to fine several more Ptychodus teeth and a beautiful large Cretodus. This is weekend though it was cold and rainy, my son and I hit the area again this time spending a little over an hour or so and found a few more broken teeth as well as a large X-Fish vert and a small mosasaur vert. I am certain this creek is going to turn up some great material after the next rains. I am attaching ictures of the finds from the couple of hours I have had to hunt this spot.
  6. Possible tooth

    Today I was working on my Otodus vertebrae cluster from Morocco and I found this. I found many bones and fish vertebrae in the cluster but nothing like this so far. Is it a tooth? I think it is but will like confirmation. If it is a tooth is it possible to identify the species? Length is about 4cm.
  7. Hey all, I really want to see peoples Stethacanthus teeth or better maybe a skeleton of some kind. If anyone has these can they show them below? Thanks.
  8. Shark Tooth I.D?

    Sharks are cool. Super cool. I know this post will get the most views out of all of mine because sharks. But where are my gastropod / brachiopod lovers? Anyways heres the tooth. Can people tell me what this tooth is? Cannot disclose location because it was purchased in a bin full of shark teeth. Said they were prehistoric. About the size of a quarter
  9. HI, Curious what this could be? It measures only 1mm found in Silurian deposit northern Illinois embedded in matrix along with pelecypods and gastropods. It looks like it could possibly be a tiny shark tooth, but I don't know anything about shark teeth. Are teeth ever found that small? At first thought maybe conodont but doesn't really have the caramel sheen to it. Any ideas? Any help appreciated.
  10. North Carolina hollow shark tooth

    I found this hollow mako shark tooth on the piles in North Carolina, I was told that the tooth hadn’t fully formed when the shark lost it but I want a few more opinions on it. Size referencefront
  11. Watch at 11:30
  12. I found this in Florida but I am not 100% sure what kind of tooth it is any help would be amazing.
  13. Say Hello to Galagadon!

    A newly discovered species of freshwater shark whose tiny teeth resemble the alien ships from the popular 1980s video game Galaga. A small freshwater carpet shark from the Cretaceous rivers of what is now South Dakota. Read it in Science daily
  14. Hybodus fin spine

    From the album Triassic vertebrate fossils

    This is a 10 cm long Hybodus fin spine from a triassic "Bonebed" in a quarry in southern germany (Baden-Württemberg). Here is the unprepped condition: You could only see the cross section: The prep work took about 4 hours. Two more pictures:
  15. Cretaceous Texas shark teeth ID

    I just got a few teeth from the Waco Texas area. I was hoping someone could help me ID them. I think the first one might be Cretodus and I am questioning the data on the last tooth, I suspect it is a striatolamia rossica from Kazakhstan that got accidentally mixed in, or something similar. thanks for looking.
  16. Shark tooth ?

    Hi friends, I have four of these shark teeth and I will like to know how the tooth gets to this state. Is it hollowed by somebody or is it found like this? How does this happen that you get only the outer shell of the tooth? Maybe this is common but I have never seen one before today.
  17. Hello, If you have seen my prior posts, it would appear I'm on a lucky streak... I found the blade of this sharks tooth at the fleet, Weymouth It is from the middle Oxford Clay (Upper callovian) - specifically the Q. Lamberti/ C. scarburgense subzone bondary I believe it is Sphenodus longidens, though it is hard to tell without the root! Any help or thoughts would be much appreciated Cheers, Jacob.
  18. I'm out of time!!!!

    Hey all! Well, if you've read some of my previous posts you'll see that throughout 2018 I've been working in Maryland and Virginia. While here I've been visiting some of the local haunts along the Atlantic to find.... really anything, and I have! HOWEVER, I have yet to find a single shark tooth!!! The rub now is timing. I am about to accept a new position with a company and my time on the Bay is coming to an end. I'm here this week and plan on visiting Matoaka Beach for the first time tomorrow. I am going to leave my hotel in Columbia, MD at 8am. Any suggestions, tricks, hints.... scooby snacks????? I've been talking about finding my son a Meg tooth for a year now and I'm coming up with squat! hahaha

  20. Good day, I was given this meg tooth to add to my collection of teeth I find in a South Africa. Initially I thought the root was incomplete but I’ve since noticed the root has two symmetrical dimples on the top unlike any other tooth I have, any help with identifying why this is would be greatly appreciated. regards Pamar.
  21. German shark tooth ID

    Hey guys I saw this Triassic shark tooth from Satteldorf, Germany and I was wondering what it could be... Its around 1cm. Somebody mentioned lissodus but I have no clue... I appreciate the help. This is my only pic. Sorry. Regards
  22. This Cuban meg is not perfect, they rarely are, but it’s one of my favorites. The color is insane, one of a kind Cuban fire. 4.31”
  23. Hey guys, This tooth was recently purchased by a family member and they gave it to me as a Christmas present. They don't know much about fossils and thought it was the real deal. However soon after getting my hands on it I could tell it was a fake or at least partially a fake. The root was too big and it smelled kind of strange. I didn't have the heart to tell my family member that it was fake. It had only been in the draw around 10 days and it literally started falling apart. At this point we tried to contact the seller as they had listed it as a real genuine tooth (they mentioned small restorations but not that the entire root was fake). I didn't get a reply and this angered me as it wasn't cheap. It cost over £400. The guy is still selling fakes and people are buying them. I don't want anyone to feel as disappointed as I did. He even has a fake tooth on there right now. It's frustrating because it ruins it for everyone else who is interested in collecting real fossils. As mentioned the whole root was fake and was like a pink putty. After poking around more the whole thing crumbled in my hand. Even the tooth itself had strange white stuff embedded in it and started to chip off. I'm sure many of you are great at spoting fakes but perhaps this could help a new member or someone who's not sure about these kind of things. Thanks for reading!
  24. Russian shark teeth ID

    Hello guys! I saw these shark teeth from Ryazan, Russia. The first 6 ( you can put numbers to the teeth according to the order of the pictures ) are identified as Archeolamna. The second 4 are identified as Cretalamna. I am very sure some are not IDed correctly, some swapped btw Cretalamna and Archeolamna and some are completely different species. I really appreciate the help, and if someone could tell me the complete specie name from that location, that would be awesome. Kind regards. Ps : tell me if you need extra pics of the back of the teeth if needed.
