  1. Fun morning hunt at NSR. Pretty good sized shark tooth for NSR.
  2. I saw the first opportunity to get back to the North Sulphur River yesterday when the temps were going to be below normal for a change. There was a really nice breeze blowing down the river. Went to a spot on the river that I have only been to once before and access is pretty poor. Thanks to whomever added the rope, it helped, especially getting out! Quantity of the finds were low but the quality of what I found was great. Found the largest Tylosaurus tooth I have ever found with a diameter just under an inch. Also a shark tooth and one nice mosasaur vertebrae. I always enjoy the chance to find an artifact, ever though they are rare, or at least for me they are? I liked the way that JarrodB displayed his artifact recently, so I photographed this one the same and it turned out pretty good. Not sure the type, could be a Marshall, usually I find Gary's, so this was a nice departure. I will be watching for another cooler than normal Texas summer day to get back to this spot.
  3. Post Oak Creek

    Went to Sherman, TX for some shark teeth. Found lots of shark teeth, oysters, one mammal tooth, one ptychodus tooth, and two vertebrae.Had a great trip and hope to go back. Will post some photos for Id in a little bit.
  4. Purse State park tooth to ID

    A couple of weeks ago I stopped by Blue Banks, just north of Purse State Park MD. The Paleocene Aquia Formation is exposed there, and teeth and bones of a variety of species erode from the exposures and accumulate in gravel along the shore. Unfortunately the Potomac River was in flood stage, so the gravel along the shore was submerged despite the low tide. A driving rain storm did not help matters. I scooped gravel and passed it through a couple of screens, and recovered a handful of the usual small sand tigers and ray teeth, before calling it quits after an hour or so. The following was the largest tooth I collected by some margin. I don't see anything like it on Elasmo.com. There are no serrations and no cusps. Any suggestions for an ID would be most welcome. Don
  5. Help identifying shark tooth

    Sorry for the bad picture and if this post is in the wrong spot. I’m am trying to get this identified for my dad. He found this in Jacksonville, FL on the bank of the St. John’s River, far inland from the beach.
  6. My first time making the trip into the Martin Marietta quarry at Belgrade this last Friday. It felt like an oven in there with temperatures in the high 80's and having to wear safety gear. Happy that there had been plenty of rain to wash the soil in the week leading up to the collecting day. The quarry is mainly looking across all the spoil piles to try to spot fossils. My buddy found a nice partial C. angustiden tooth that would of been over 3 inches. I also found a 2.2 inch GW that was pretty worn. Pictures show some of my better finds from the day. I found many more with damage to a root lobe. Would be good to see what others found. The largest Sand Tiger tooth in the top left is 1.82 inches. Grateful for IDs on the vert, croc tooth? sawfish barb? and others (other than the Tiger and Hemi's).
  7. Back in the 1970's I was given these 4 teeth and was told they were fossil shark teeth. How can you tell if they're fossil or modern?????
  8. Sepulga River, AL Shark teeth

    A friend and I recently kayaked the Sepulga River in South Alabama and tried our luck at fossil hunting. We ended up with ~40 teeth in 3 hours. Unfortunately, I am not too familiar with the IDs in this area (Eocene, right?). I have some ideas, but would appreciate any input/information (because I am likely wrong). The 6 teeth below are representative of the majority of the haul. Thanks in advance!
  9. Huge hemipristis?

    From what I have seen of other hemi teeth, they generally aren't much bigger than 2". But this really looks like those, only much bigger. Any ideas?
  10. Hello! I found this on the beach in Bay Head, NJ. Is this some kind of tooth? Any ideas what kind? I have additional photos if that would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
  11. Cardabiodon

  15. Shark tooth identification

    This is a shark tooth found in Venice, Florida. I don’t know if it is identifiable because of how little there is, but I would like to know what it came from. If anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated.
  16. Beautiful Texas Tooth

    Went on a hunt with my son this past weekend. Had a friend join us for part of the day. We hit a part of the creek that does not get hit too hard. Was just telling her that I had found some large partial Cretodus earlier in this spot when she tells me she found a great tooth. She wasn’t kidding. Best tooth I have seen all year.
  17. Hello. I am going to Florida this summer. I am going to go to Venice Beach and Siesta Key for the day. I am going to bring my sifter with me. Any tips on where to go while I am there. Looking to find some nice sharks teeth. Id'd love to find a nice Mako, Great White or even a Megalodon. Thanks for your help, Chris
  18. Shark Tooth

    Does anyone know what kind of shark tooth this is? I am unaware of the geological age. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
  19. Hi all, I found 3 interesting things on my last day at Onslow Beach NC. They look like some sort of bones to me. One I think is a vertebrae. Of what??? I’m hoping you all can tell me. It looks like 3 is the limit on sending pics so I will have to do several posts. If there is information on posting that I should know please point me there as well. I saw something about using the “photo FAQ-page to learn about posting but couldn’t find it. Thank you in advance. Bone 1... Vertebrae?
  20. New to town and need help!

    I am new to this group and would like to say hello and ask for some help. I started walking the beach and collecting sharks teeth and shells. I have acquired more than a thousand teeth in the last 3 or 4 months. I have not a clue what tooth belongs to which shark! Any help please and I will start posting my weekend finds! This is a photo of a few out of my collection.. Thank you!
  21. Today’s haul

    What all do I have here? Anything in particular catch anyone’s eye?
  22. Charleston SC

    What do I have here guys? just found this one today.
  23. Help please. Some time ago. there was a thread in which some one I believe from the northeast USA commented on their finding various shark egg cases. I have tried searching in vain to locate that post. I volunteer at the Natural History Society Of Maryland. I am trying to put together a display/talk for shark week coming up in July. Would like to include recent shark egg cases along with my collection of fossil shark teeth and centra. I can trade various Miocene/Pliocene fossils, St Clair ferns or other fossils. Any help to connect me to anyone with shark egg cases would be greatly appreciated
