  1. Hi all, For whatever reason, I never got around to posting this. After a relatively unsuccessful day at Bayfront Park back in 2018, my dad showed me this tooth, unsure of what it was. He said he had found it while sifting in the creek that runs under the bridge near the entrance of the park. I had never really bothered trying around that area because it was so far from any cliff exposures, but I suppose he proved that some of the best finds may be where you least expect them. The second he pulled out this tooth, my jaw dropped. It is a FLAWLESS cow shark symphyseal. I hadn't had a single one in my collection until then. I've never seen a better symphyseal than this one, not in a museum or anywhere online. It's absolutely perfect, with exquisite symmetry and phenomenal preservation. Undoubtedly the best tooth my dad has ever found. Although I was a bit jealous that he found it and not me, I was at the same time ecstatic because all of his finds go towards my collection. This beauty is one of my most prized teeth, as I am yet to see a more perfect specimen. The pictures do not do it justice in the slightest. It was found a while ago, but I thought you all would still like to see it. Enjoy!
  2. rapp creek hunting

    Tried to get out before the ice storm in search of cowshark teeth (found none and hunted hard). Lots of small sand tiger teeth, including a crooked one and a symphyseal, and lots of split teeth. Lots of drum teeth, (the dull side is more interesting than the glossy side). Four angel teeth that stand up on their triangular base, two whose root is damaged. Two or three mako (broken). Lots of small triangular teeth (dusky, bull, gray? not sure what all they are). Lots of batoid/ skate teeth, but no stingers or denticles. One whole vert and a small disc echinoid. Lots ofsmall 'whale bone' and bits to go through. Not what I was after, but quantity if not quality was good.
  3. Worn Cow Shark Symphyseal

    Hi all, This tooth was found of one of my recent hunts along the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland. I found it at Bayfront Park/Brownies Beach. It is approximately one cm in length, relatively flat, and has multiple worn but visible bumps of enamel that could either be large serrations of some shark tooth or cusps of a symphyseal cow shark tooth. I believe it's the latter, but also recognize that it is a rather uncommon find. If it turns out to be a cow shark symphyseal, it would be my first one! Excited to see your takes on this one. I feel somewhat confident with my standing ID, but would love some confirmation. Thanks in advance!
  4. Hello all, I hope you are having a fossiliferous New Year. To kick ours off, MomAnonymous and I went off to Brownies to check out the beach. It seems I really do need waders as I was unable to round the point even at low tide. We met @sharkdoctor on the point who had found an amazing bird bone in zone 10. We chatted for a bit, and he gave me a lot of information that could prove very helpful, and even invited me to a group hunt at Blue Banks. What a generous man. I get good luck when meeting other collectors! We putted around for a bit, finding some really nice sand tigers at one point and a lot of other, small teeth. Then we went to the bridge, where MomAnonymous found another symphyseal Physogaleus in the exact same spot as before! In all we got 137 small teeth. Not the best of days, but not horrible either. @Littlefoot @racerzeke @ShoreThing @WhodamanHD
  5. Hexanchus symphyseal (my first one!!!!)

    From the album Eocene vertebrates of Ukraine

    8 years of collecting in that area, and finally a cowshark symphyseal
  6. Any day out on the river is a great day but today was something special, plentiful teeth and a couple of rarities! My wife started the day off right by finding a symphyseal cow shark tooth, I still can't hardly believe that she found it! Later on I stepped over a log to find a Meg leaning up against another log. Later on in the day, my daughters were hunting together and when I got home and checked out what they found, there was an Alopias grandis there! I finished the day off by spying a 2 1/2" Mako sitting high and dry...I couldn't ask for a better day on the river with my family! Total haul. Definite trip maker here! I was very pleased with this! My wife was not going to be outdone and found her own. Of course my kids got into the action as well. I closed out the day with this beauty.
  7. Symphyseal Otodus?

    Seeing this online, one of the hundreds of patho otoduses that come out of Morocco, but I have a suspicion this is a Symphyseal tooth, note the offset root. They thought he same on the parasymphyseal FB group (strange such a thing exists) But, I am not sure, you guys know? It’s not expensive, and I think symphs are cool.
  8. So you see from Morocco (Ouled Abdoun, late paleocene- early Eocene?) These funky looking Cow sharks called Weltonia ancistrodon. Though I don’t own one, I still have questions about it. The questions I have are the following: 1) There are always lowers. Never, not once, have I seen for sale an upper. Where are they? What do they look like? What about Symphyseals? 2) Have they ever been found anywhere else? I find it hard to believe they only come from the one site. 3) what is the purpose of the weird blade? Any papers on this?
  9. Symphyseal notorynchus teeth

    Found both these symphyseal notorynchus this year, they are quite certainly among my best finds from 2017. They’re from two different locations in the Antwerp area.
  10. Hey Folks, Got this tooth in the spoils pile at the Aurora Fossil museum. I think it is a Physogaleus contortus symphyseal tooth, looking for confirmation or alternatives. It is 1/2 inch on slant. Thanks, Tony PS @MarcoSr, @siteseer, @sixgill pete, @Al Dente
  11. Working in Singapore the last six months, I was eager to look for teeth in my favorite places. Unfortunately, the best holes had silted in with sand and black decaying leaves and it took a lot of digging and screening. Didn't find anything spectacular, just lots of small teeth. One might be a sand shark symphyseal, small with a large almost rectangular root. Also a squirrel/rat tooth but not black and shiny like the shark teeth (put pictures under ID help). A start anyway.
  12. Found this yesterday at Brownie Beach, Maryland. I know it's from a Cow Shark, but I'm not sure about the specific kind. Any ideas?
  13. megalodon symphyseal

    A very rare and nice, small megalodon symphyseal tooth. A tooth position that was not in all megs.
  14. hemipristis symphyseal

    Self Collected at the Lee Creek Mine. This hemi lower symphyseal has great coloration.
  15. Cookiecutter Shark Tooth

    The stratigraphic information for this locality is questionable and so is specified vaguely. The environment is marine shell hash that may span late Miocene-Pleistocene. Dr. Richard C. Hulbert, Jr. from FLMNH had this to say about the locality: There are two “formations” found near the surface in that area of the state. One is the middle to late Miocene Peace River Formation. The other “formation” possible is has been informally called the Okeechobee Formation by Tom Scott, and consists of the sandy shell beds formerly called the Caloosahatchee, Bermont, and Fort Thompson formations. On the geologic map of Florida published by the state’s geological survey it is not designated a formal name and is instead listed as Pliocene/Pleistocene shelly unit. Even if found in situ within the Plio/Pleistocene unit, such specimens could be reworked out of the Peace River Formation. If you are finding them in modern creek alluvium, it will be difficult to be sure which is their original depositional unit.
