  1. Hello. Found this in the bottom of a box of rocks and shells that I bought at an estate sale in Southern Connecticut. Very curious if any of the experts on this forum know what this is. Thank you.
  2. A friend of mine proposed to buy this piece. What do you think? thanks to everybody
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. Found these in some Material from Bone Valley Fla. They are about .75" in height.
  6. Hello members I'd quite like a globiden tooth. I have some small pterosurid teeth from Kem Kem to exchange.
  7. Found this today, Lower Hunter Valley, NSW Australia. Have only washed it clean but some teeth & bone look visible, 5cm X 5cm. Have found some larger things will clean & post soon. Thanks ,
  8. I'm hoping someone might be able to help me ID these shark teeth I recently got. They are from the sulpulga river, Alabama. The coin is a dime. thanks!
  9. This was a recent find on private land near Lusk Wyoming. It is an area with lots of oreodonts and lots of turtles. Always anxious to find anything different. I think that is likely a long shot because there is not much to go on ..... but there is plenty of brain power on this site. What struck me the most was how thick and heavy this bone feels. THe teeth are all broken off and both ends are gone. The ventral aspect is also broken off so its full depth in that direction is not appreciated either. Thanks in advance if any one has any ideas.
  10. Been meaning to get these teeth ready in a rikor box, but took me awhile to get a small box. I do sell fossils in Quartzite to pay for my trip, but I only get an 8 foot square area with my buddy. I really only go there to drink, eat good food and shoot the poop with my buddy, but the wife and I both have a wonderful time there. and also I have a great time talking with other fossil folks too. Plus its nice to get out of the really cold weather for a few days too and just wear a t-shirt. Anyways, here are some teeth Im going to take with me. Just dont want them. Im not a tooth guy. These are teeth I aquired many years ago. RB
  11. I went on my first fossil adventure today; at Post Oak Creek. These are my finds.
  12. Hey guys, I have many Cretaceous Shark Teeth up for trading. I will send them in a small envelope with around 10-20 inside for a random fossil that I will not be able to find in NJ. I found these at Ramanessin Brook, NJ. Please let me know if interested. Thanks.
  13. How do I start a collection of fossils? What container should I use?
  14. Anyone know what these various teeth are from? I think the big one is Allodesmus but the rest I'm not sure about. Collected over the last few years at Ernst Quarries in Bakersfield.
  15. I'm fairly sure these are horse teeth (except the first, I've thought about zebra and camel as well) and was curious if anyone could help me ID them. Thanks!
  16. Newbie here. Have plenty of photos it only allowed 1
  17. 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! The flooded section with the Charlestown Main Limestone and shale layers above exposed (photo taken last summer):
  18. I filled an old shadow box (originally with dried butterflies) with Cretaceous fossil shark teeth I got from PaleoRon. Here is how it came out; eventually it will hang on my office wall:
  19. Ive never posted a trip report before so thought it was about time I gave it a go! I took a trip to my favorite shark tooth site this afternoon in search of some Upper Carboniferous/Pennsylvanian shark teeth from the Westphalian A of the British Coal Measures. The site is a stretch of shoreline beneath the spoil heaps of two long closed collieries which dumped their waste material directly onto the foreshore. Blocks of the best matrix for vertebrate remains are hard to find and getting rarer, the majority of the beach boulders are basalt, sandstone and un-fossiliferous shales and mudstones. When you do find the right matrix its crammed full of fish scales, bones, spines teeth, coprolites etc but shark teeth can be hard to find. Today I came across a grand total of two small blocks of the right matrix along the entire stretch of the beach but luckily both of these contained a shark (well Holocephalian more closely related to the Chimaeras) crusher tooth! They need a lot of prep which I'll hopefully get done over the next couple of days. A shot of the the site looking rather bleak in the Scottish winter today:
  20. 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.
  21. Because of private reasons i didnt post much lately but now i found some time to post my teeth-finds from last Sunday in Holzmaden. There were lots of good-looking material and the weather was great ! Best circumstances to collect I was about 3 or 4 hours in the quarry Kromer (Lower Jurassic) and found some good stuff. As doushantuo says (here: ) the preparation was a serious dental work Firstly this nice Ichthyosaurus tooth: With a length of 1 cm its not the longest tooth but it has a nice strukture ! The next one is my ere biggest tooth ever from Holzmaden! Its a 2.6 cm long Steneosaurus tooth (at least i think that its a croc tooth). The preparation was very hard and took about 6 hours ... Here is the result:
  22. Greetings, I am starting to amass a growing number of loose crinoid caylxes and paleozoic shark teeth (among other things). Currently I am keeping them in plastic containers separated by age (example below), but I am looking for ideas on how to display these, as leaving them in containers is a bit bland to me. One cool idea I saw (but can't seem to find any examples of) was at a show I visited a few years back. The fossils were held up on top of small metal rods the size of a pen, and held in place by small hairlike metal wires. Does anyone have any cool solutions they've used?
  23. OK, I finally took a camera with me on this one. For the past year, I have visited an area about an hour south of me that is a source for Great White teeth and other marine animal parts. But for the most part, GW teeth is the majority of what is found. Now the location is perched on a steep hillside about 7 miles inland of the Pacific Ocean. It was a deposit that had been cut through by a river and re-deposited in a different location, much like many of the sites along the east coast are now. However, the redeposition was done a very long time ago. It is found about 200 feet above the valley floor and goes up at an angle due to faulting (what else would you expect in California, the land of earthquakes?) The formation consists of what I can easily call cemented gravel (heavy emphasis on the cement part!) I only have a hand pick and a trench trowel (folding shovel) to somehow work my way through that "rock". It doesn't take long swinging a pick with one hand to wear you out. By the end of the day, My arm feels like limp spaghetti. Because this ground is so hard and worked by river action, finding a whole tooth with roots intact is something of a rarity. Mostly you will find shards of crown enamel or the teeth are so worn they have no serrations at all. I had worked a hole for a while only to figure out the actual deposit was about 12" below the floor of my pit. Did I mention the deposit goes up at an angle? Missed it!!!! OH MAN! I had to backtrack removing my tailing pile and having to re dig the hole to a lower level. Did I mention the humidity was about 105%? I was completely drenched in sweat. Nobody said fossil hunting was easy work!!!! The first photos are the small hole I had to dig to establish the fossil layer once the tailings were removed. Believe me that ground is much harder than it looks. Guess I can skip the gym this week! Last photo is the day's tally. All Great Whites except for a small Cow Shark tooth. The top tooth on the left is 2 1/8" there is a small tooth in matrix at the bottom (note there is no root). I was lucky enough to get three with whole roots this trip. Thank you for putting up with my rabbling. Doren/ caldigger
  24. Found these in Big Brook over the past few years. Unfortunately, I am not knowledgeable enough to identify these with any certainty.This one obviously looks like a shark tooth, but I question it because it is not made up of the same shiny material as the other "regular" looking shark tooth fossils we found. No clue about this glob.Porous The top tooth has a sandy texture and less boney look but same shape. The left one does not seem fossilized to me. Not sure if prehistoric squid or something like a claw or nail? Centers seem to be a little hollowed out.
