  1. Is there anywhere to find shark teeth(or other fossils) on the east coast beaches of NSW, Australia?
  2. Looking miocene shark teeth….. all kind! I can offer fossils from Europe.
  3. This is a brief evolution circle I threw together of the megalodon lineage. I’m going to put in better condition specimens of angustidens and cretolamna at some point. I was hoping to trace the lineage back even further if possible
  4. Edestus "shark"

    Does anyone know much about the edestus? Ive always wondered about their teeth as they age. All sharks and fish(and animals), when they're young their teeth are also small. Edestus are supposed to never lose their teeth, like their buddy helicoprion(right?), and just have their jaws continue to extend out from their mouths over time. That being the case, how are the oldest teeth, from when they were little young things, full sized, or almost full sized, as they always are? The jaw bone starts off small at the tip, but quickly thickens, but the teeth start large. Also, does that mean that they are born with just a single tooth on the top and bottom, and grow new teeth at an unheard of slow rate?
  5. Today turned out to be a good day to go through Linton Cannel Coal. I haven't searched the fossil coal in a while. Just for fun, I was looking through some blocks when I spotted a shark spine buried in a thin layer of spore cannel. Usually when I split the coal, I use a knife, but this piece was so thin and fragile I decided to blow of the layer with an air nozzle. When I did this, not only did I see a spine, but nearly a complete Shark was there. Typically the size of the coal block limits the fossil size. Today's fossil Orthacanthus compressus was missing the head and the tip of the tail. Sigh. This shark is from a coal mine in SE Ohio. The coal is Upper Pennsylvanian in age (300 myo). I have included a sketch of what an Orthacanthus may have looked like.
  6. small collection of miocene shark tooth from Austrian wineyards in Steyermark. In return Im looking other miocene shark. Only miocene!
  7. Good time at the North Sulphur River in Ladonia, Texas this weekend. Here are some of the things we found! I’m curious about the gray ammonite (bottom right). I’ve attached a few photos at the end (first two photos) to see if any of you know what the black line is running through it at the bottom. It reminds me of the vein in a shrimp!
  8. shark teeth

    I think this is a shark due to the multiple rows of teeth but that's all I got they are really small maybe belong to a juvenile the fossil is about 1.5 inches
  9. Hi Everyone, I suddenly have a work trip to the Black Hills of South Dakota coming up next week and I'd like to get out and collect some fossils along the way. I'm driving from Denver to Lead, SD and will be driving north on HW 85 and 18 through Newcastle. I'd be really happy to get a few stops in along the way and any potential information would really be great. Unfortunately, I won't have a ton of time to be able to stop and really dig, so some road cuts or target formations would be super helpful for surface collecting. I'm open to every type of fossil. I know there's a lot of fossils in that section of the state so I'm looking forward to hopefully finding some decent stuff! Thanks! Caleb
  10. I managed to get out for a hunt with some friends a couple days ago. Lots of rain here in Florida means the rivers are flooded, but the creek hunting is good. We managed to find a new spot that hasn't been hunted before and pulled some very nice fossils out. I am actually going back to this spot in a few minutes, because I'm obsessed. If you're not interested in watching the video, here's a bunch of the finds (but not all): A big dugong vert. Two megs from the same screen. A pretty little mako! And some of the shark tooth highlights from the end of the hunt! Can't wait to get back there later today and see what else is hiding in there! -Cris
  11. Shark hill IDs

    Hi can I get some IDs please. Thank you I started a post in member collecting so I have posted here with a link. Thank you
  12. Cookie cutter creek tooth id

    I was lucky enough to get some matrix from the famous cookie cutter creek this weekend from @digit and started searching through it grain by grain tonight. Came across this tooth and can't seem to find it in any of my papers and books. Sure I just overlooked it, but I'm sure someone can help me.
  13. Moroccan Eocene shark teeth

    Hiya I got a bunch of Eocene shark teeth from Khouribga, Morocco and I've tried a tentative ID using the highly scientific tool of Google, but I'd like your opinions. The scale is in centimeters. First photo: Odontaspis sp. (substriata?), anterior to the left, lateral to the right Second photo: Striatolamna sp. (macrota?) Thanks in advance
  14. Shark Tooth and Invertebrate Hunting!

    Cris and I went out to enjoy some brutal summer heat, and find some fossils yesterday! The finds weren't quite as productive as some days at these sites, but we still had an awesome time and found some really cool stuff! The way one of the megs is found is absolutely nerve-wracking. You'll see!
  15. Shark tooth?

  16. Indonesian Megalodon teeth

    Hi everyone. Just a quick question regarding Megalodon teeth from Indonesia. They appear to be quite uncommon as regards that location? The few specimens I’ve seen recently appear to be of a very light coloration as well. Is this typical of Indonesian meg teeth?Will try to get photos.
  17. any good beginner spots near central ohio?

    Hey guys forest here Im a very new fossil hunter i always find shells in my grandmas driveway and i wanna know if there is anywhere i could find some shark teeth, trilobites or mosasaur teeth (one of my fav) or even skeletons of stuff if you guys could help i would be very thankful! Thanks, Forest
  18. Unidentifiable shark tooth

    Remember the post I made about the mosasaur tooth? Well I also got a shark tooth to go with it. Unfortunately, I cannot identify what species it is. I’m a lover of sharks but I sometimes have trouble with identification problems with the teeth..
  19. Somniosus Belgium Shark Tooth?

    This Miocene tooth is 9.7mm and was from Antwerp, Belgium. It may be a Somniosus sp. tooth, what do you guys think?
  20. Morning Northeast Texas creek hunt.
  21. G'day everyone! Around a week ago, I received a package of micro matrix from Rattlesnake Creek (Aged late Miocene?), generously given to be by the amazing @GeschWhat. I have only gone through the matrix but was not disappointed. The micro matrix was packed full of shark, ray and fish material, as well as a couple of small bones. Here is some photos of my finds. I have attempted to ID some and left others. If you can ID some of my finds, it would greatly appreciated. All of my current finds Shark teeth (Unknwon ID) Ray Teeth Unknown bone (Mammal?) Lagodon teeth Rhynchobatus? Unknown fish material Thanks for reading!
  22. What kind of Shark tooth?

    We went to a "fossil dig" at our parks and rec center today. They had ordered a fossil kit from the Aurora Fossil Museum in Eastern North Carolina. My son found this partial large tooth. Can you tell me which kind of shark you think it came from?
  23. Hello everyone, Haven't seen enough of these “show us” threads lately, and I don’t want to walk to a museum, so I started this thread! I want to see the rarest shark teeth in your collection! It doesn’t have to be self collected, just have to have it. Please include a photo or a few and a measurement or a scale and a description. I’m expecting great things out of this thread!
  24. What is going on here?

    I found this halisaurus premax on the favorite auction site. It's pretty cool, one associated tooth is still in place in the front. But just underneath the premax the matrix is filled with shark verts. Does this association mean anything? I find it odd that a mosasaur jaw ended up on top of a bunch of shark verts.....is there a chance the two animals died combating each other?
