  1. In the last couple of months my son and I have purchased some unprepped Lebanese fossil fishy's. There are four known species of guitarfish from the Lebanese provinces of Hakel and Hajula. Rhinobatos maronita is one of these; this species was fist described in 1866 by Pictet and Humbert. Some purty dang cool stuff but the guy we are buying from does not know how to wrap and send fossils over seas! Our last shipment came in many pieces! Not good. My son is working on him to make it right? Aside from that Im going to do what I can to fix things. First up is one side of what I think is a Guitar Fish, Rhinobatus? My son purchased this and this is the 'not so good side' with the other side being in better shape. Every so often I will be back and make more post of these realy neato fossil fishy's. @oilshale I dont know much about the types/specimens of these fish from Lebanon so if anyone wants to chime in and correct me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you RB The back half of this slap used to be in one piece!!!
  2. Shark Tooth ID - Florida (Part 2)

    Please help me ID these shark teeth that were found on the west coast of Florida (near Venice) over the past weekend. My belief is that the top row could be Great White and/or Megalodon (very nice serration on the largest/first one), the second row is either Bull or Dusky, and the third row is Hemipristis (Snaggletooth). As for the fourth row... the jury is still out. I am most intrigued by the third/tiny one (from left to right). It looks different from anything else I have ever found. Very compact, lots of detail, and oddly shaped. Any ideas???
  3. Shark Tooth ID - Florida

    Please help ID any of these sharks teeth that were collected from the west coast of Florida (near Venice) this past weekend. Based on my research, the top two rows look like Sand Tiger and the bottom two look like Lemon. Would this be correct or are there any that look out of sorts?
  4. Bonita Springs Christmas

    Hey all!!! Been a long time since I posted on the actual site. I'm doing Christmas in Bonita Springs, Florida this year and would love to do some shark tooth hunting. I'm not familiar with Florida fossils at all. SO! I'm starting my research and thought I would take in any recommendations to work around. let me know and I'll share!!! Thanks!
  5. *HELP* Shark Tooth Identification

    Can anyone please help me in identifying this tooth? I’m leaning towards an extinct sub species of the great white however I cannot be sure.. any input would be greatly appreciated

  9. Heres a fun thread for those to show off their widest and fattest looking megalodon teeth fossils in thier collections. I'll set the tone with the widest fat boy in my collection, I don't have digital calipers but it measure roughly 5.4 inches wide by 6.1 inches long. When I close my hand together it looks even more monstrous. Share yours and join the wide boyclub Got the idea while thinking about what the widest megalodon tooth ever found measures, if anyone does know do share in this thread!
  10. Shark Tooth Found

    I found this tooth at my normal overburden site, at work, it is the best shark tooth i have even found. Looking at Shark tooth I.D guides my guess is that this is a Auriculatus tooth. What do you all think?
  11. Sharks tooth ID: A Meg and a ????

    I know there is one for sure Meg... what is the smaller one??!! These are from central Florida.
  12. Kansas City Mystery Pennsylvanian Tooth?

    Receiving this gorgeous but mysterious specimen is from Upper Pennsylvanian limestone dated around 290-300 million years ago from somewhere around Kansas City. Looks like a tooth to me and my best guess would be orodus? But I have little experience with Pennsylvanian shark teeth in general and especially from this area, also cannot find a comparison elsewhere online. Any help will be appreciated.
  13. Cleaning a sharks tooth

    I wanted to show some photos of a tooth that cleaned up really well. This is a small tooth I found some time ago. Regardless of its size, the quality of the specimen was excellent. So I cleaned it and polished the enamel. I thought the difference was significant. My learning was that in some cases cleaning and polishing can greatly improve the looks of a specimen. Before the cleaning. Fresh out of the river After cleaning and polishing the enamel

  18. Need help on these small fossils.

    I found an old box of fossils I had when I was a kid. I dont remember where I got it from but I would appreciate it if someone can I.D the shark teeth from or or the brachiopod.
  19. I have some teeth from Cognac area to ID. Selachians found are Parvodus, Polyacrodus, Lissodus, Hybodus, Hybodontidae, Rhinobatidae but I don't know them. Is someone knows this fauna ? Here are 4 pics done with my phone, but perhaps I have to try with an APN... They are very very small. It is written "Portlandian" on the pics but the right stage is Berriasian. I think I have 2 different species in my collection, and I must do a lot of pics Thanks for you help. Coco
  20. Big Brook!

    I took a vacation to NYC (and in good time too, since everything is going to hell in a handbasket) and on one day i went to big brook! I wore a full set of waders and crawled up, around, over, and through Big Brook for about 6 hours. It was great! I will definitely go back! Man, that site has some of the most convincing concretions i have ever seen, and i have seen a LOT! I know what much of i found was, but some is a definite mystery.
  21. Help request! I am putting together a tool for judging rock age based on very crude, whole-rock, hand-sample observations of fossil faunas/floras -- the types of observations a child or beginner could successfully make. I view this as a complement to the very fine, species-level identifications commonly employed as index fossils for individual stages, biozones, etc. Attached is what I've got so far, but I can clearly use help with corals, mollusks, plants, vertebrates, ichnofossils, and the post-Paleozoic In the attached file, vibrant orange indicates times in earth history to commonly observe the item of interest; paler orange indicates times in earth history to less commonly observe the item of interest. White indicates very little to no practical probability of observing the item of interest. Please keep in mind that the listed indicators are things like “conspicuous horn corals,” purposefully declining to address rare encounters with groups of low preservation potential, low recognizability, etc. Got additions/amendments, especially for the groups mentioned above? Toss them in the comments below! Thank you..... https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tVm_u6v573V4NACrdebb_1OsBEAz60dS1m4pCTckgyA
  22. Today was not only a leap day but it was the 10th anniversary of the Gateway Science Museum. We were invited to take part in the festivities and provide an activity. We decided to bring some fossils that folks might not associate with leaping or jumping. We tied the leaping theme together with our fossils and talked sharks, whales, avian dinos, non-avian dinos, and marine mammals. The Cetaceans stole the show but people were digging the breaching sharks too. I was often busy with double duty, I’m a supervisor at the Gateway, so Carter took the lead. He absolutely nailed it. Proud dad today watching my kiddo be the MAN for Fossils on Wheels. Fun day and a great day for Carter. Good job kiddo.
  23. I am in NYC for 5 days at the beginning of March, and I intend on taking at least one of those days to go find some fossils somewhere. I have nerded out pretty hard and crossreferenced localities etc and I have basically narrowed it to Big Brook, Shark River, or trilobites. I would love opinions on where the collecting would be best between Shark River and Big Brook (I have a bunch of Miocene shark teeth from California but absolutely nothing from the Cretaceous). I have some trilobites from California (white mountains) but nothing particularly special. Any and all suggestions will be considered! I have no problems wading horribly cold rivers or banging open limestone as necessary. About me: I am a medically retired field/remediation paleontologist from California, so while i *taught* invert paleo at university, I spent most of my time chasing construction vehicles for Pleistocene megafauna. I have a pickup truck and am always ready to travel... but I moved to New Hampshire where there are ZERO FOSSILS AT ALL.
