  1. I finally got to do some hunting in the Peace River area of bone valley and just want some help with identifying these teeth.
  2. Fossil finds from 7/20/19

    My finds from 7/20/19. My location had lots of people on it, but surprisingly I did good. I found a corner of a meg, a nice bull shark tooth, A nice sand tiger tooth, And lots of bone. All of these where found near Beaufort SC.
  3. Not sure where this belongs, but for those of you that are shark fanciers I recently found that the definitive guide, "Sharks of the World: a fully illustrated guide" by David A Ebert, Leonard Compagno and Sarah L Fowler with illustrations by Marc Dando is being published with 80 additional pages in October. If you have been looking for a copy you may be aware that the 2013 edition currently sells for a ridiculous $600 to well over $1000. (Best I can find right now is $591) You can preorder a copy of the new expanded version now
  4. Just thought I'd share this post from our Facebook Group. Had a blast sharing some of my shark fossils with visitors this last Saturday. If you can contribute and give back to your community and society in general I promise that you'll find the experience rewarding and enriching. Pass on your knowledge to the next generation and get them exited about the sciences and paleontology.
  5. Modern Shark tooth identification

    Hello, I´m not sure about the ID. For me the tooth looks like a Hemipristis or a bull shark tooth. The tooth is from the Indo-Pacific (Phillippines) and 1/2" (1,5cm) in lenght. I want to be sure with the ID because I do not want to buy a tooth of a protected species. I don´t know, if the question is correctly ask in the Fossilforum, but I hope, that you can help me. Kind regards from Germany
  6. Calvert Cliffs Fossil IDs

    Hi! I'm new to fossil hunting and I went to the Calvert Cliffs formation in Maryland this week. I collected these fossil looking pieces, but I'm having trouble identifying them and whether or not any are actual teeth (shark or other animal) or teeth fossilized in something. Any help would be appreciated!
  7. Hi I'm going to be making the 2 hour drive out to the Paynes creek area of the peace river to look for sharks teeth. It's a long drive and I am dieing to find my first big Meg. I could really use some advice on where to look. I'm not asking for exact spots but. If i'm going to spend the whole day out there on one of my very few free days then I really don't want to come home empty handed. Please any help will be amazing.
  8. Fossil finds from today

    Here are my finds from todays shark tooth hunt. I found a lot of teeth today but nothing amazing. I did find a nice dolphin tooth. Sorry for the bad quality photo.
  9. Wikipedia's Cretolamna

    Hi everyone, I am seeking more information about the spectacular Cretolamna fossil featured in the respective wikipedia article. Aside from being a great fossil it has some interesting features, such as a large second dorsal fin. However, there doesn't seem to be anything else online about this specimen. Does anyone know anything about this - is it in a private collection? Can it actually be referred to Cretolamna?
  10. Squalicorax pristodontus

    From the album Sharks

    Very nice S. pristodontus teeth from Morocco. Notice the serrations are even on the tip of the blade.
  11. Scapanorhynchus texanus

    From the album Sharks

    A nice S. texanus tooth. (extinct goblin shark)
  12. Shark presentation

    Today was time for me to give my Shark presentation at the Onandaga County Free Library, in Syracuse, New York. Originally I was to do a presentation on sharks, for the kids in the morning, and a second presentation on New York trilobites, for adults, in the afternoon. Due to the death of a friend, I had to cancel the trilobite presentation to attend to funeral services. But I gave the presentation on sharks as I did not want to cancel that, and let the kids down, who had registered for this event with the library, in advance. I really enjoyed giving this presentation today. While I never claim to anyone about being an expert, I do enjoy sharing the knowledge that I do have, with others. There were about 16, of the 23 kids, who had signed up for this, as well as their parents. Not a large group, but that's ok. I talked a bit about sharks of the past, modern sharks, shark fossils, and how and where to find them. I only had an hour to talk, and the time seemed to fly by, but the smiles on the children's and parents faces made it rewarding. At the end of the discussion I gave each kid 2 sharkteeth and 2 stingray plates to take home.They all seemed very pleased with that. The teeth I gave away were all from my recent hunt from Cookie Cutter Creek, as I had plenty. The highlight was when one of the children approached me after the talk. She looked at me and whispered " You know, you talked just a little too much". I had to chuckle. I told her how much a appreciate constructive criticism.
  13. Big Brook Treats

    I wanted to post a couple pics from this weekend. I found a few teeth and things I am happy with. I could use a verification on the identities though. Thanks for looking!! Andy I think these 2 teeth are both Cretolamna Appendiculata. A very nice fish vertabra? And finally my favorite bivalve to find in the brook. I can't identify it for you though. It reminds me of the giant clam that tried to eat Batman and Robin back in the 60's.
  14. Hey everyone. I’m new to this forum and pretty new to hunting anywhere other than the beach, but I’ve been venturing out to Summerville and a few creeks in the West Ashley area. I’ve found pretty much nothing except for a broken meg tooth in a well known creek in Summerville. I’m not asking for anyone’s specific hunting spot, but does anyone have some insight on other areas besides the Sawmill Branch creek?
  15. Finally another fossil hunt!

    I’m quite busy these days, so it’s been a few months but I finally found a few hours to dart out and get a hunt in at brownies on Saturday. There had obviously been a myriad of collectors who braved the cold prior to me, so I wasn’t expecting much. However, I did end up with a few decent specimens. It feels good to get out into nature and climb over some trees once in a while. Despite my muted expression, I had a blast!
  16. Scapanorhynchus

    I want to tap into all of the expertise that is on this site again! I am doing research on a faunal assemblage of the Coniacian age from north central New Mexico. It is quite a large grouping, with over 12,000 teeth from over 25 species. I am currently working on scapanorhynchus, and am looking for some guidance. Some of the teeth have labial plications, and Cicimurri et. al. argues that this is most likely due to ontogenetic reasons. However, this paper is the only one I can find that even mentions labial plications on Western Interior Seaway scapanorhynchids. Do you have any thoughts about this? Any and all help will be greatly appreciated!

  18. I was reading a book about fossil fishes and there was a chapter dedicated to sharks and their cousins. Apparently there were chondricthyan scales found in the Late Ordovician and Early Silurian rocks. Since I hunt the Late Ordovician Georgian Bay formation in Toronto, Ontario and various Early Silurian formations in Hamilton, Ontario, what are the chances of me coming across these scales? Should I keep my eyes open and what should I look for?
  19. Sorry this is my first time in Morocco and I’ve never fossil hunted abroad if possible could any1 tell me what the teeth are (apart from the mosasaur one) and if the 2nd photo is a fossil or not

  22. New Jersey Modern Sharks

    Hey everyone, I recently walked on a beach near Keansburg, New Jersey, and came across an unusually large amount of dead animals. There were mostly crabs (blue crabs and spider crabs), baby shells, and jellyfish lying on the beach. However, I came across three small sharks. Does anyone know what factors might be responsible for the dead animals, such as rising water temperatures? If anyone knows what type of shark (I believe it is the smooth dogfish, Mustelus canis) and jellyfish that is, please comment. Thanks everyone, Joseph Jellyfish: Shark #1 body (with a fish behind it) Shark #1 dentition: Shark #2 remains: Shark #2 dentition:
  23. Does anyone know where I can find on the web a chart or table that lists shark species versus geologic time? I have searched but just can't find one. It would also be helpful if the table would show lineage as is presently believed to be accurate. Thanks!
  24. Help Identify Shark Teeth

    Hi everyone! I am new here. I found many shark teeth this past weekend in the Venice Florida beach area. I was able to identify all but these five teeth. Can anyone help me? I had not been to look for shark teeth since I was a kid and had forgotten how cool it was! I am hooked now and I want to go to the Peace River and the Carolina beaches to look for some Megaladon teeth! Thank you so much for any help you can give me! Jodi :-)
  25. Sharks Vertebras

    I received these vertebras form a lady that lives in Colonial Beach, Va. and close to George Washington's Birthplace. I was told they are sharks vertebras but I am doubtful. Can someone identify them? I'll post the other vertebrae in the next post.
