  1. Shark teeth in Israel

    Hello! is it possible to find shark teeth fossils in Israel from oligocene-Pliocene?
  2. Devonian? Xenacanthus tooth

    First off, I apologize for the poor image quality... The pictures were taken quickly with my phone camera through a microscope. If anyone is interested I'll get out a proper camera later and try again. I found this while searching some Widder formation matrix collected in Arkona ontario. It is roughly 1 mm across. I am fairly certain the tooth belonged to a Xenacanth. Has anyone found these in the area before or did it migrate from somewhere else? Note: the tooth is smooth. The serrated look is caused by pixels in #2
  3. Let me know when you get tired of me posting but I am so excited about how enthusiastic my son is about our hunts. He has only recently started to enjoy crawling creeks with me and can spend the whole day of time allowed. We have been out the last two weeks and have found quite a few teeth. Have found probably a quart of brokes and a few nice ones. He loves to get an official count after every hunt. Yesterday yielded officially 492 in three and a half hours. Found a couple of quality teeth as well as a P. latissimus that is broken and a heartbreaker. Still on the hunt for a complete one for the collection. Weather has been perfect. We need to enjoy it before the temps rise above unbearable.
  4. Shark in Wisconsin, USA?

    Location: SE Portage County, Central Wisconsin, USA. Geology: South Western advance of Green Bay Glacial Lobe. Former Glacial Lake Oshkosh. Niagara Escarpment Debris. My land. Ordovician onward. I am still shaking. Went on first walk of the year in my fields. Found these, along with a few other fossils. Have never found any teeth, other than modern ones here before. My questions are: What are they? Look like shark to me. What era, species? Is this a significant find for my location? These look way too clean compared to my other fossil finds here. Is someone messing with me? Note that I only saw the upper ½” tip of the larger one sticking out of the ground. The smaller one had the base sticking out a little. Ground is still frozen here after about 1-2” on the surface. I used the screwdriver I had brought along to dig the larger one out. Thank you. ff teeth 1 ff teeth 2 ff teeth 3 ff teeth 3

  6. Gallery updates

    After a long idle period, I finally did a good sized update to my galleries here on the forum. Most of the new images went into my invert gallery, but the trilobite and shark teeth galleries got a few as well. There are a few rarities in there and a few things I've never seen for sale elsewhere. Enjoy.

  8. Little shark tooth ID

    Hi all! I got this little shark tooth on an auction site and I was wondering what it could be... I don’t think it’s a Mako because it has a different shape. The tooth is from Antwerp,Belgium. I can see that they would of have been small side teeth. Can anyone help me? Here are some pictures, tell me if you need more. Appreciate it.
  9. Well, Shark Week has come early this year! I'm starting to photograph my collection for more "safekeeping" while I'm away, so I figured posting them here would be a good thing to do. Now, I can't really tell any species from another, so I don't really have any ids for any of these guys, but I know many members here would know, so I don't mind if some of you all id them (or correct the ones I do give) . These first ones are from Aurora, North Carolina, and come from the Miocene epoch. I think there's some hemis and tiger shark teeth in these, as well as "requiem sharks" (?).

  17. What shark is this?

    This was from a pile of shark I bought from a seller in Belgium. I believe this one is from Antwerp. I have no idea what shark it is. Could it be a type of Mako? Any information would be helpful. Regards, indominus rex.
  18. Hello! I am moving to Huntsville, Alabama from Daytona Beach, Florida, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of some good areas to fossil hunt in Alabama and the surrounding area. I am used to taking trips to the Peace River on the weekends and hunting there. I know of one place with research so far that is fairly comparable to the peace river in Alabama, but does anyone know of anywhere else? Thanks!
  19. Shark tooth ID - Florida finds

    Wondered if I could get a little help ID'ing these two shark teeth I found at the weekend in a creek off the Peace River, Florida. I found lots of nicely colored Lemon, Tiger and Dusky shark teeth over the weekend but these two were a little different Tooth #1 - This is the yellow tooth with the curved tip. This had the hallmarks for a Lemon with the flat root, but the very curved tip looked odd. Is this a pathological Lemon or another species? Tooth #2 - This looks like a symphyseal tooth but I don't think it's a Tiger as it's not got any fine serrations. Any thoughts. Both are about 0.5". Thanks in advance Attached to this posted is Tooth 1
  20. For trade! Shark teeth from Slovenia-miocene. My interest miocene fossils-echinoids,pectens, interesting bivalves,gastropods, also posible to exchange for one nice ammonite, sharh teeth,.....
  21. Can you please help me I’d these teeth. The one on the left is suppose to be Cretoxyrhina denticulata from the Tambov region of Russia. Can anyone confirm this or i.d. It differently. I know the one on the right is a Cretolamna from Morocco but if someone could help me I.d. It further that would be great. Thanks
  22. I have not posted in a while and wanted to share an amazing fossil that i collected in December of 2017. Sharks usually do not come to ones mind when discussing Illinois fossils. Many collectors are not aware that you can find complete shark skeletons. Illinois is fortunate to be one of the few places in the world to find complete Pennsylvanian aged sharks. The vast majority of these fossils are found within siderite concretions in the Mazon Creek deposit. These rare sharks are always found as immature individuals. Illinois also has limited exposures of black shale similar to the Mecca Quarry Shale of Indiana. This shale was extensively studied by Rainer Zangerl in the 1960s and 70s and is known for the variety of sharks that he uncovered. I have been collecting a small exposure of this shale for the past 20 or so years finding a variety of bivalves, crustaceans, nautiloids and occasional fish. Most of the fish are fragmentary and usually not well preserved. I have shared pictures of a few of the specimens I have collected in past posts. One of the most interesting fish that I have collected is a little known group of sharks called Iniopterygians. They are also referred to as flying sharks due to the unusual placement of the pectoral fins mounted high up on the shoulder. It is believed that these fins would have functioned similar to the fins in modern flying fish. They have large eyes, club like tails and very unusual tooth batteries. There are several described types mostly known from fragmentary remains. Since preservation in black shale is usually poor, most of the described specimens are x-rayed rather then prepped to help identify bones and bone structures. The specimens that I have collected have all been relatively small ranging from five to six inches. This new specimen is by far the largest and best preserved example that i have ever seen. The specimen measures a little over a foot in length. Due to the quality of preservation, I had a friend spend nearly 40 hours prepping out the fish. It appears to be quite a bit different from other examples that I have found. If anyone on the forum knows of any researchers who work with these sharks, please let me know. Enjoy!
  23. Hello all, I stop collecting shark teeth from the cenozoic. I offer all my shark teeth for trade here. There are 3 different location. -Antwerpen, Schelde. Collected in 1970 (not by me) -Balegem. Collected in 1986 (not by me) -Steendorp. Date not known. There is one Megalodon (Steendorp). It's about 8 cm and has all serrations. There is some damage at one side. Steendorp is a closed location were fossils from the Neogene were found. Next there is about 4,5 pound of Balegem shark and ray teeth. These were collected in 1986. There are a couple of Otodus teeth (at least 3 complete), I heard these are pretty rare, but most are from Striatolamia macrota. The biggest one is over 2 inch. This is also a closed location where fossils from the Lutetian (middle eocene) were found. Many complete teeth altough there are also broken teeth in it. No junk. The last location (Antwerp) includes about 1,1 pound of teeth that were found in the Schelde in 1970. Most teeth are broken but there are some nice small ones in it (Notorynchus, Hastalis...). (No pictures yet). At last I will throw in some teeth from Cadzand/Breskens (The Netherlands). There are waaay to many teeth to take pictures of every single one of them, so I just took some pictures of some. If interested, Pm me and I will send you more pictures. I know the pictures aren't the best, but I don't have a camera and my smartphone don't want to cooperate with me. I'm looking for: -Fish -Anything insect -Anything dinosaur (no chunkosaur) - Fossils from Liaoning or similar locations in China - Trilobites - Permian/ Triassic reptiles (teeth,jaws, bones etc.) - Anything I don't have from the KemKem Beds. -All shark teeth that are at least as old as the Cretaceous. - Fossils from the Eocene of Morocco. - ...
  24. Thrilling Threshers!

    The genus Alopias, commonly known as the Thresher Shark, has been around for millions of years. These sharks use their abnormally long, whip-like caudal fin to stun their prey. This fin can grow to become more than half the length of shark's entire body. It is a strange and fascinating creature, and has been one of my favorite sharks ever since I was a little boy. Today, we fossil hunters can find the fossilized teeth of Thresher Sharks. They are typically rather small, and relatively uncommon. They look really cool in my opinion, and they're among my favorite types of shark teeth that are on the smaller side. So for this thread, SHOW US YOUR THRESHERS! I'll start by posting a neat little ring I made with my best Threshers so far. I'm excited to see what you all have found. Like I said, most of these teeth are pretty small, but I do understand that there's a species of Giant Thresher that can apparently be found at Calvert Cliffs and elsewhere. I've seen a few pictures, but never found one. Let's see what you all got!
  25. Antwerpen

    Hello, hopefully somebody can help me. I live in Denmark and might be going to Antwerpen on March 23 until about 27 march. Do anybody know where I can go and find shark teeths? Do you know somebody who are might to guide me to the place and show me how to find them? Best regards Marianne
