  1. I would like to get some fossils to seed some areas for both my sons to find some interesting things and to better learn the diversity of what is out there. I was thinking shark teeth , ammonites and trilobites stuff like that can any one help with this. I could ether trade or buy doesn't matter I'm just looking for a variety of stuff.
  2. Shartooth Hill ID

    I have this planus tooth with a bonus tooth stuck in the root matrix. Was wondering if anyone could ID the smaller tooth? thanks! R~
  3. Went to Big Brook NJ for the first time this summer with the kids. Liked it so much we went back several times. For first timers we were very happy with the hauls. May look rather plain to the seasoned people here but wanted to share. Thanks, Jason
  4. Ghost tooth

    So I'm cruising the bottom in really, really strong current. We're talking get-out-your-screwdriver-and-hang-on-for-dear-life strong. I've got a butt-load of lead on me, though, so I'm able to make some headway with my screwdriver. I find a few smaller teeth and put them in my pouch--a real trick with the current hammering you. So the next small tooth I run across, a pretty little lower mako, I have a little argument with myself before picking it up. Finally I figure, what the hell, and grab it. While I'm putting it in my bag, a big, ghostly white triangle appears right under my nose. As I look, I realize it's a megalodon blade, half-buried in the sand. Darn thing is almost pure white, I only noticed after staring right at it for about ten seconds. If I hadn't stopped to grab that mako, never would've even noticed. So I put a finger under the blade, thinking, "there's no way this thing is whole, that would just be too perfect." I lifted. And whaddaya know, darn thing was all there! It dried beautifully. My first white meg. It comes in right at four inches.
  5. Aiguillon Nemacanthus

    From the album SNP Vertebrates

  6. big restored megalodon

    Another one. 5.6 inches
  7. The coast of Somerset is famous for one of the exposures of the Rhaetian Penarth formation, which is better known from Aust, where it is better exposed. It contains many reptile bones, fish scales, shark teeth, fin spines, coprolites, that sort of thing. On my last visit I didn't find any of the blocks which contain large bones, but I did find some containing large numbers of tiny teeth and very small bones. These blocks can be broken down to reveal large quantities of fossils. These teeth are absolutely tiny, some as small as 1mm across and none bigger than 3mm. They can barely be made out by the naked eye, except as a shiny black dot on the rock. 75mp panorama of one of the larger teeth (approx 3mm) I placed this tooth on a magazine to illustrate scale. The letters are standard small print.
  8. Hi Everyone, I recently came into possession of some megalodon teeth that are absolutely perfect for restorations. They started out as 3/4 complete teeth. This one ended up being 6 11/16 inches which is my biggest tooth ever! It has some really nice serrations on it all of the way around. I did restorations to the tip, severe enamel peel on the front and back, blade near the bourlette, and lots of reconstruction of the root.
  9. Found on the beach

    Found this at the beach near Jacksonville Florida - I was thinking it might be a shark tooth - its about 2 inches long. The picture is of it sitting next to my Gear Head Nano wireless mouse.
  10. New Unknowns

    I found this tooth yesterday on Potomac River. I thought at first that it was a crocodile tooth, but it isn't hollow & it isn't curved as most of the crocodile teeth that I see online tend to be. This photo is magnified 2x so you can see the detail. I have another unknown to add to this list later. It measures 1.25 inches long. I just realized I photographed it on the mm side of the ruler. Thanks for looking.
  11. Carcharodon megalodon?? Kiev. Ukraine.

    Hi! I found this tooth in sand where I collected striatolamia, otodus and other shark tooth fossil. But this separated I never found before. This is carcharodon megalodon?? Thank!)
  12. Walton on the Naze finds

    HI everyone here are the best of my finds, found at Walton on the Naze over the past year. The big tooth on left corner I believe is an Otodus that was given to me by another fossil hunting enthusiast. Sadly didn't find it myself but it is still nice to have as a memento of Walton .
  13. Shark tooth?

    I found this beachcombing in Pelican Lake, Minnesota, near Breezy Point in the east central part of the state. I was walking along a mostly submerged gravely point jutting out from an island in the middle of the lake when I spotted it. I initially thought it was an odd-shaped limestone rock, but once I picked it up it occurred to me it might be a tooth of some sort. Most of what I've read online suggests shark teeth are usually smooth and black, and this is neither. Any ideas? Thanks!
  14. Hi everyone! I found this megalodon tooth on an auction site, and considering the good quality of it and the very low price, I was hoping if someone more experienced could tell me if they see any red flags on it before I put an offer in. It looks nice to me, but I'm nowhere near qualified to give a sound judgement on something like this. The seller has it listed as being 4 inches high. Also, this and one other (much more expensive) Meg tooth appear to be the only things ever listed from the seller, so I'm very hesitant. Any advice on the tooth in question would be appreciated.
  15. The root turned out a little funky but I still like this tooth overall.
  16. Possible Fossils

    Hello everyone! My latest trip into the creeks of Gainesville proved quite successful, quite a few dozen shark teeth found, as well as some other questionable pieces. Can anyone confirm if these are fossils and if so what kind, or just stones? Collected from Rattlesnake Creek. Thank you and happy hunting!
  17. Work has me in CA for the weekend so I struck off to Bakersfield to hunt for some teeth. Ernst Quarries was open this time so I signed up there, my first trip to this site. Strangely enough I was the only person to show up so I had the entire site to myself. (Strange that no one else would want to chisel compacted dirt all day long in the sun on a barren hill in Southern CA at the end of September but me?) Ernst Quarries supplies some hand tools (hand sledge and a point chisel) and has a f ew screens. Eight and a half hours later of pretty solid chiseling/ digging my results are below. No Meg for me but I understand 20 some Megs where pulled from this hunting ground over the last year. Bones & Matrix. Not sure what the bones are, probably whale, the vert wasn't complete but interesting, not sure what vert it is but it seems too "short" for whale & it has several divots in the sides.
  18. New Jersey Cretaceous shark tooth ID

    Hello! I recently found this TINY (the entire rock is about the size of a U.S. half dollar) shark tooth in matrix. It is from the Monmouth County Cretaceous. It has two cusps on either side, they are partially covered in the matrix but I'm having difficulty removing it so I am not planning any further prep. Anyone know what type of shark this is?
  19. Otodus obliquus

    There are some scientific theories in support of this shark being the great grandfather of C. megalodon. This species was one of the major oceanic predators of the Eocene and the shark at it's time was the largest of the Eocene sharks known in the fossil record. O. obliquus went extinct during the mid-Eocene and the largest shark to continue the line of mega-sharks was C. auriculatus. Both O. obliquus and C. auriculatus had cusps on both sides of the tooth root. O. obliquus teeth can grow up to a couple of inches implying the shark would have been anywhere from one and a half to twice the size of the largest Great White sharks of our modern day oceans though this is merely speculation and is based on the tooth to shark ratio modeled in modern C. charcarias.
  20. I found a nice little assortment of micro shark teeth today in the North Sulphur River in Ladonia, Texas. These were found about 3 feet up in the wall of the bank. Anyone know what type of sharks these are? There’s also a little round black unidentified object. I thought it might be a tiny fish very, but unsure about that.
  21. This is my attempt at arranging the teeth. I thought it would be fun to try. I have no idea how to construct the actual jaw or how to do proper dentition. Dog provided for reference. The photos were too large to post so here are the links: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6MnBNbnlfcTJPcFk/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6cFVDbVBaclBaanM/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6VVNWdkVBNGVpMzQ/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6NnJTMldiT08wbEk/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6Q3h2cGhwTVN2VFk/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B7QcbeYzTMs6QWhPc2ROX1JRT1U/view?usp=sharing
  22. Bone Bed

    Can anyone let me know what this is, I was given it by a guy on the Isle of Wight.
  23. Pearly Whites for Great Whites!

    I had a good weekend on the river this past Saturday and Sunday. I did some fishing and scouting for new dig spots. I have yet to find my own place where 1. no one else knows/digs that I am networked with 2. that produces decent quality and OK quantity. Saturday evening that was checked off from my fossil hunting bucket list, though. I plugged down the river in my lil 14' jon boat, saw some shells atop a bank that looked familiar to the fossil pecten in edgecomb county and made a quick dash to the shore! I had quite the struggle among the brush and trees between myself and these barely visible shells - but I made it, grabbed a very nice C. madisonius with some little barnacles atop of it. As I'm climbing down I spot something embedded in the rock/hardened clay and got so excited I literally laughed out loud. MEGLADON TOOTH! -This I was not expecting, but welcomed! I pried it out, really neat color and sadly chipped away about a third - but still in good condition and a promising sign as I looked around and also found two beautiful little great whites almost pearly white! Such unique colored teeth for this part of eastern NC as normally my finds, like GMR, are darker grays and blacks and then you have the aurora teeth and hour east that these appeared more like in color but still different. I would love to know the minerals responsible for this coloration here. Anyhow, I returned with my Good digging partner, Rick, Sunday and we found a few more things that were alright. More to explore - more to come I'm sure!
