  1. Found this while searching for shark teeth near Jacksonville FL. I thought maybe a stingray? Any ideas? Sorry low quality pictures. The edges are strange but cant seem to get the camera to focus.
  2. I live in the Arabian desert, near Jebel Hafeet. Yesterday I found a pavement tooth of an eagle ray. Today I found a mysterious fossil which looks like it might be part of the body and fins/wings of a ray. I appreciate that their bodies were made of cartilage and that is not usually preserved very well, but in some cases it’s possible. Any opinions would be most appreciated. Thank you so much.
  3. I've recently moved to coastal South Carolina in the Charleston area. I've also recently discovered the fun of hunting for shark teeth. On my last shark tooth hunting expedition I came across this interesting piece as I was searching a local beach. I think it may be a stingray mouth plate and would like someone to confirm my suspicion. Maybe it isn't even a fossil.... it is in spectacular condition and that makes me wonder/doubt it is. Any help is appreciated.
  4. Picked up on Myrtle Beach today. I've seen stingray mouth plates before and this reminds me of that, but they were always small detached pieces with the vertical lines - never inside something bigger. So maybe this is something else? A piece of shell maybe? Appreciate your thoughts. Thanks! Paula
  5. Asterotrygon?

    Hello! I have this juvenile stingray here from the green river formation, F2. The seller labeled it as a Heliobatis radians. At first I was taking his word on the ID but is it possible this is an Asterotrygon? I know the chances are very slim but I have reasons to believe this is an Asterotrygon: 1. Asterotrygon is more common from the F2 beds, this is from F2. 2. The general body shape leans more towards Asterotrygon than Heliobatis. 3. The tail looks shorter than other Heliobatis juvenile tails I've seen. Also the base of the tail shows some developed denticles, possibly the early growth stage of the thick tail of an Asterotrygon. Overall I know this is all probably wishful thinking, but I'd love to hear the opinions of you all.
  6. Heliobatis radians (male)

    From the album Chondrichthyes

    This specimen has a funny story behind it. The post office mishandled the package so this guy came out of the box broken. Thankfully the very helpful folks here at TFF were able to help me piece him back together. Ok now on to the specimen itself. This is a Heliobatis radians from the Green River Formation: Wyoming, USA. The diameter of the two pectoral fins is 8.5 inches which is fairly big for this species. And the presence of claspers on the pelvic fins make this stingray a male. All of these observations form the conclusion that this is an adult male Heliobatis. The preservation of this stingray is fantastic. A huge majority of the small bones that make up the pectoral fins are preserved. Under magnification one can see the cell structure of the cartilage. Also, the very best part: there is absolutely no restoration! The only work done to this fossil was gluing it back together with cyanoacrylate (super glue). Unfortunately the tail is missing, but that does not detract from this awesome Heliobatis radians. I will post some close up pictures once I get one of those camera loupes you attach to your cell phone camera.
  7. Folly Beach Finds

    Hey guys! Just a few things I found on Folly, i’m not too knowledgeable. Think I got a puffer fish & stingray mouth/dental plate. If anyone can ID and give an approximate age of what’s in the pic, that’d be cool. Pic attached.
  8. Hello everyone been ages since I’ve visited this site so I figure I’d share a trip I went on Saturday. I went out with a good buddy of mine and a guy I haven’t met before to try Peace River. We put in at Wauchula and went a few miles from the boat ramp in our canoes. After a few hours of digging we found some interesting stuff I’ll include pics of what I found . This is probably my favorite find of the day, a giant stingray plate chunk, anyone ever see any like that?
  9. I found this tooth (Rajiformes?)

    I fount it in marine sandstone, but I don´t know what it's. Age: Probably Maastrichtian.
  10. Stingray info

    I apologize if this is a dumb question, but I inherited this large fossil years ago from my late grandfather. Any info you may have regarding origin, value, etc Woild be greatly appreciated!!
  11. Stingray Barbs

    Do you ever look at your fossils and say, ok that's enough, I have plenty? haha.... I have many more stingray barbs...... I think I've reached my capacity of them.....
  12. A fellow TFF member gave me some micro material from the Eocene, Meridian Mississippi . I don't know much about micro fossils so was hoping to get some info on the following? Which were all photographed next to a US nickel. photos 1 and 2
  13. Khouribga Material: ID?

    Hello again, Here are the other things that I bought at the same time as my Squalicorax tooth, in an earlier topic today. They all come from Khouribga, Morocco (Maastrichtian in age, ~68mya), but I do not know what they are... Any help is appreciated! Best regards, Max
  14. Heliobatis radians

    This is a female Stingray specimen called Heliobatis radians and is one of only two species of ray from the Green River Formation. Like modern stingrays, this extinct genus had barbs on its tail. This one is known to be a female due to the absence of claspers used by the male in mating.
  15. Stingray Spine #2, Front

    From the album Pleistocene Microfossils from Merritt Island, Florida

    Another view of the stingray spine.
  16. Stingray Spine #1, Back

    From the album Pleistocene Microfossils from Merritt Island, Florida

    A rather broken stingray spine from the Melbourne Bone Bed (10,000 - 20,000 years old). Found in microfossil matrix gathered from a dredge spoil island near Merritt Island, Florida.
  17. What Kind Of Ray?

    Found this stingray dental plate washed up on Flag Ponds beach. It was quite a good day for odd finds! I know the two most common rays plates found there belonged to duck rays and eagle rays, but this is neither. Anyone got an idea?
  18. Seeking Second Opinion, Stingray Tooth?

    Hello, I came across this interesting find in our landscape river rock in our backyard. It looks porous on the flat bottom kind of like bone, but has a rounded top and some interesting raised lines on the surface. A friend brought it another friend who identified it as a stingray tooth. But... when I looked up photos of stingray teeth I found mostly flat ones with parallel lines and not any that had rounded lines on one end more like a finger print. I was just curious if anyone could give me a second opinion on the identification.
