  1. The seller of this piece claims that the teeth are not composited onto the matrix, but, judging by this picture, I would say the roots aren't original. They lack texture and the one on the left in the close-up seems 'smudged' up onto the bone. I would imagine the block has original bone but most of the teeth added afterwards, but I may of course be wrong. Can someone more experienced please give their opinion? Either way, it looks like a great piece to me, if a bit out of my price range! Many thanks.
  2. Here are my most recent finds from a trip out to Venice Beach. I found a large variation of color of sharks teeth and bone fragments. I also found a small piece of what appears to be some type of equine tooth, a small unknown possibly reptilian tooth, a vertebra, and some other odds and ends. This beach has a very wide variation of fossils and we had a great time hunting. A big thanks goes to JCBShark for lending some gear and giving me a piece of meg to take to my daughter! She was thrilled.

  4. Hi all! After my first ever collecting trip to Brownie's Beach, I'm chomping at the bit to go look for more fossils! As a Virginian, I'm incredibly lucky to have stumbled onto this hobby given the plethora of great sites in the MD/VA area. Now, I would LOVE to find a good spot on the Potomac, as Brownie's was a 2.5+ hour drive which makes it a bit long for a day trip. Having done some map recon and online browsing, it seems that Fairview beach and Colonial beach might make for promising spots. What are y'alls thoughts? Has anyone been to either of these sites? I haven't found anything online about fossils at Fairview but it's quite close to Colonial so I figured it might be worth a go! (not looking for specific tips, just a simple head nod that I'm headed in the right direction with either of these beaches) best, Bronco
  5. Mosasaur teeth and Otodus tooth from Morocco for trade. I like all different kinds of fossils so I'm not going to specify what I would take in trade.
  6. A friend of mine proposed to buy this piece. What do you think? thanks to everybody
  7. Almost all the old teeth I find are bison...I hope I have something different this time,...or maybe camel??
  8. Im looking to trade some specimens for a few fossil horse teeth. If interested PM me or post here on what you may want to trade for. At the moment im inundated with lots of trilos mostly from New York. Thanks!
  9. Hi there, We found this today on the beach at Walton-on-Naze, in Essex. We're keen to see if anyone can help identify the fossil. Thanks, G.
  10. From the album Random shark teeth gallery

  11. Hi all, I recently bought a small lot of shark teeth, all said to be found in Florida and have been trying to identify them. These are some of them, am I doing alright? The ones labeled "Lemon?" have all a small notch on the middle of the root, is this a good way to identify them? Ruler is in mm Thank you!
  12. Can you please help me identify these two shark teeth. They were found in a Miocene area; Calvert Cliffs. The larger of the two (at the top) is 1 1/16" across the root, and the smaller one (on the bottom) is 10/16" across the root. Thanks for your help.
  13. Good day, A few months ago I went fossil hunting at peace river in Florida. Here I found a few things that I've not been able to identify. These two are some of those finds. I've never seen anything like it so it's been really hard to identify. I'd love to hear if anyone can identify these finds. With kind regards, Thije
  14. A few more from central Florida that I am unsure about and would appreciate some help with identifying them. The ruler is cm on the red side and inches on the black. At some point I flipped it. # 1. I believe these are canine teeth possibly from a camelid or Equus but they seem too small for either to me. I am unsure if the two are even from the same species and suspect they are not: # 2. These incisors I think may be camelid but I really am not sure. Again, not sure they are from the same species: These last two are a couple unknown partial vertebrae. #3. #4.
  15. Last week I got the opportunity to go fossil hunting in an abandoned Lower Carboniferous/Mississippian marine limestone quarry near my home in Fife, Scotland. The quarry exploited a bed known as the Charlsetown Main Limestone. It is from this bed and the overlying beds of shale that I have collected the majority of my Lower Carboniferous marine shark and cartilaginous fish fossils from various sites across the Midland Valley of Scotland. I try to check the site as regularly as I can as new material is constantly being washed out of the spoil heaps, but the overall area where fossils can be collected is very small. I hadn't found anything worth keeping on the last few trips but on this occasion I found a nice near complete Cladodus mirabilis tooth on the first block of limestone I picked up, needless to say I was pretty chuffed! This tooth was found on the bank of a flooded section where the lapping water is eroding the side of a spoil heap and in the past Ive found two partial Cladodus striatus teeth here as well as lots of well preserved inverts like crinoids and brachiopods. Ive decided next time I go to take equipment for sieving the mud on the bank and bed of the pool for fossils, so hopefully by using this method I'll soon have lots more nice finds from this site to show!

  16. In going through some matrix from the Lance Creek Formation, Late Maastrichtian, Wyoming, which shares much fauna with the Hell Creek formation, I have found some more interesting things since my last posting on this area. I believe that two of the teeth are crocodilian, either crocodile or alligator. The pictures named "unknown 4" look a little like a triceratops tooth, but I don't want to get my hopes up. The pictures labeled "unknown 3," I have no idea - it just looks like a fossil. The hash marks are 1mm.
  17. Hi, Other than the dinosaur bone agates I have in my collection, the only two other items I have that are dinosaur are these two teeth. Both are said to be 'meat-eaters' from the Judith River Formation in Montana and the Cretaceous era. I'm still learning so not really sure how to ID them myself, but would really like to know which species these belonged to. The larger one is 1 3/8 inches long, the tiny one is around 1/2 inch. Thanks for reading and for helping in anyway!
  18. I am experimenting with my new macro lens and ring flash. These are some teeth from Calvert Cliffs, MD.
  19. I work in a small museum and occasionally have people stop by to ask what kind of fossil they've found. About half the time I know or can find out with a little research- the other half I am clueless. So, I've decided to start leaning on people who are vastly smarter than I on this topic (i.e. you people). A guy came in with these photos and said he came across this lower jaw while hiking in an area known for middle to late Eocene fossils in SW Wyoming. He estimated it was maybe 7 inches in length and was just a couple of feet above some fossil turtle scutes. I don't really know much about the area or much about vertebrate fossils. I am guessing it is some sort of Creodonta or Carnivora, but I am way out of my element (I just learned what Creodonta are). Some known Creodonta from the area (1992): Sinopa, Limnocyon, Thinocyon, Partiofelis Some known Carnivora from the area (1992): Miacis, Viverravus, Vulpavus Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  20. Hi. I keep learning new things all of the time. One of the things I learned last year is that crocodile teeth are hollow inside. I have a few from over the years so I checked them out. Yep, they were all hollow.. except for one. So I am guessing this isn't really a crocodile tooth. I will post it for the experts to comment on. It is about the size of a 50 cent piece for reference. Also, I can't remember exactly where I found this one. It was either a day when I was allowed into Scientist Cliffs, or it might have been a trip I paid for to Stratford Hall. I believe it was Scientist Cliffs.
  21. If there's rock, there might be bone. If there's bone, there might be teeth. If there's teeth, they might be megs. If they're megs, they might be big and beautiful. Or, sometimes, you just find a big beautiful meg in the middle of nowhere. I was forty minutes into a dive where I'd only seen a few verts and bone frags. My mind began to wander and I thought, "Wouldn't this be a nutty place to find a big- tooth!" I swear to God, ten seconds later, I saw the tip of a big meg sticking out of the sand. I told myself to chill, that it was almost certainly broken. But when I lifted the tip with an index finger, the whole thing peeled out. 5 3/4" and one of my best teeth! Also included some other recent finds. some other recent megs
  22. Here are some bones and teeth from Ernst Quarry in Bakersfield that I can't figure out what they are. They are unusual and stand out from everything else I have collected there. The longer bone I suspect is fish or bird. The one on matrix with a fish and sea mammal vert I thought was a whale ear bone at first but I am not sure because of the weird shape. It almost seems like some sort of tooth. There is another included that is very similar it but not on matrix.
  23. Some of my finds from Hogtown Creek today in Gainesville. Any idea what the mammal tooth is? Horse??
