  1. Shark and mammal id please

    Took a very early morning trip to the beach with my daughter this morning and we found some very nice things. Im thinking that the shark teeth are Mako sp? And maybe white shark? Have no clue on the bones. The bigger one might be a partial whale vert? The two smaller ones I can't place at all. From what I have read on the area is that it's Miocene to late pliocene in age, terrestrial and marine species are found on this stretch of beach and further inland. Thanks for everyone's expertise.
  2. 10 Years

    On Sept. 23 2010 a basically novice fossil collector was looking online trying to I.D. some shark teeth from Lee Creek. While he had been "collecting" for more than a decade it was not a truly serious hobby. While surfing the web he stumbled upon this fledgling thing called the fossil forum. Something told this guy to go ahead and become a member. When asked for a screen name, even though his name was Don he decided on sixgill pete. That was because one of his grandsons had called him that on a hunt. Well the rest is history. 10 years later to the day, he is still a member. Still learning, but now way to serious about these things we call fossils. I have met a lot of great people because of our forum, and unfortunately have lost a few of the great ones too. So I say, thanks to everyone for having me and putting up with me for these 10 years.
  3. Unidentified shark teeth

    I have two shark teeth that I don’t know what shark it belongs to. I’ve had them for years and haven’t payed much attention because I forgot about them. I know the one in the bottle is modern but an ID would still help. Not sure about the other one I know the root is broken and unfortunately it’s split in half but it’s darker so I don’t know if it’s fossil or not. I just want to know what shark owned these teeth and if the second tooth is modern or fossilized. Thanks
  4. Harding sandstone question

    Hi guys, I recently purchased some processed Harding sandstone, I was looking for unprocessed stuff but I could not find any for sale so I had to just go with this. The fossils arrived today and I have been examining them with my microscope, I find this stuff very fascinating. My question is regarding these fossils here: the ID guide that came with them claims they are sharks but I find this strange, I believe chondrichthyes only appeared in the Late Silurian so how could this be? Are they something else, and if so do we know what that something would be? Also if they are sharks would we not also expect to find their teeth, yet they seem absent in this matrix. Thank you, Misha
  5. Miocene Shark Tooth ID? - I'm stumped!

    Hey Guys! I've been going through some of our Calvert Cliffs summer finds and came across this one that I can't ID. It looks like it has a couple of teensy cusplets, which is probably a useful clue for somebody who actually knows their stuff. Any ideas?
  6. River worn or digested?

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone could help me with this tooth... first, I was wondering if anyone could I.D it, it appears to have a cusp, so I’d say no to megalodon, so I’d guess either an Angustidens or Auriculatus... second, I was wondering if you guys think this is just a worn tooth that was in the river for a while, or if it was digested, I saw one for sale that looked similar and said it was digested, so it got me wondering, and I figured it was worth it to at least check on the forum. TIA!
  7. Visited a friend this weekend who gave me some nice fossils. I know where the black teeth come from and I'm guessing that the lighter teeth are from Morocco. The circled tooth I'm unsure about, any ideas? Thanks
  8. Very small shark tooth for ID

    Hello! Sorry for bad quallity photos and I understand that tooth is broken, but this tooth is very small (max. length ~1,5 mm) and has interesting shape. May its possible to identify? Western Ukraine. Most probably - miocene. Thanks in advance!
  9. Shark teeth from ignaberga sweden

    Found these small shark teeth in ignaberga sweden. Its cretaceous in age anybody knows the species?
  10. Hi everyone! This tooth was found at Perú, at Nazca desert zone. I'm supposing that is a Megalodon tooth but maybe, you experts, could give me some more extra information about kind of Megalodon, size or age... I don't know really, but my son is asking me about and some more expert information will help me a lot ;-). The size for rule is in centimeters. Thank you very much for your kindness!
  11. Today while at the beach with the kids I came across this amongst the stones. I know that it's a shark tooth but that's all I know as much help as possible would be fantastic to identify it please. Location Gosport, Hampshire UK I have a few more pictures if needed. Many thanks in Advance
  12. Shark Teeth ID

    Friend of mine gifted me some shark teeth. He's not a fossil hunter, nor that much into fossils; they were given to him. I know they're from the United States, but beyond that I don't have a locality. This one is 3/4". My first instinct here is to say Lemon, but the base of the blade along the root is serrated. Bronze Whaler?
  13. Squatine tooth?

    Is it tooth of Squatina or can be some others variants? Scale - mm. Age - Cretaceus-Neogene. Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  14. Shark tooth for ID.

    Hello! Is it possible to identify? Scale - mm. Western Ukraine. Probably Miocene. Thanks!
  15. Megamouth shark teeth?

    Hello, I see these shark teeth from an auction. I don't know if they are fossilized or come from a recent animal. Unfortunately the photos are not very good. I still wonder what kind of shark these teeth could have come from. My first idea was Megamouth shark, but teeth of these are of course very rare. On the other hand, it might fit because the teeth are found on Japan's coast and Megamouth sharks are also found there (if there are recent species). Can you help me with the ID? I'm really not quite sure, I've never seen teeth like this before. Thank you and best regards from Germany.
  16. Shark tooth with matrix?

    Hey, I was wondering what is attached to the root of this tooth... it’s not root, and it’s weird placement for matrix, could it be a little bit of the jaw still attached, like cartilage? I’m pretty sure it’s Carcharhinus, but if anyone could confirm, I’d really appreciate it! TIA!
  17. I finally got some microfossil slides and I got some additional Devonian matrix from New York. I decided to go back to the Genundewa Limestone matrix primarily because I failed to find shark related matrix from other locations that are of the same age. Each of the three searches in this matrix has produced different results which make it fun to search. This search was a lot of Phoebodus teeth and some were close to 75% complete. Easily the best Phoebodus teeth I’ve found in this formation yet. I found a fair amount of Omalodus teeth and some nice ones. I also found two incomplete mystery teeth again. Fewer denticles but a piece of fin spine. The shark remains are in the bottom slide in the picture. The top slide are awesome little fish remains including various Conodont elements, fish teeth, fish scales and what I think might be bits of Placoderm. These are not going in a display. They are just going to be study specimens for me. I think I can find or make microfossil slides that will hold the fossils in place better but these work now.
  18. What kind of shark is this?

    I found these at Bolivar Peninsula in Texas. I'm looking to identify the fat dark one on the left. I'm pretty sure it's a sharks tooth, but it looks very, very old due to erosion. Also, is the bottom one a tiger shark? Thanks in advance for the help.
  19. Im looking for my collection different megalodon teeth and vertebrae. If you want to trade I offer fossils from Europe. Thanks!
