  1. 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):
  2. Hi, Finally was able to get out and do some hunting...glad I did. Found a few honey holes that produced some good fossils. Are these two teeth, mosasaur? I'm trying to compare these to my other mosasaur teeth that I have found before, but the sizes and condition vary so much I hesitate to make a positive ID. (scale in inches) Thanks.
  3. Found this on the beach at Jekyll Island GA Not sure at all what it might be. Any thoughts? Thank you
  4. From top to bottom, left to right, here is what I have so far... Don't worry, this is my last trek to the river for the foreseeable future. Back to work on Monday Mammal tooth fragment (see below pic for top view) ??? Dolphin jaw ??? it's not metal either Deer antler ??? Alligator tooth fragment ??? Puffer fish mouth plate Mammal tooth fragment (see below pic for top view) ??? Maybe a turtle, but I haven't seen this design (see below pic for close up)
  5. I have a fondness for fossil teeth that have unusual coloes to them. I think it would be nice to see some of Yours. Any type of tooth will do as long as it has atypical color(s) to it. Here are a few from My Sharktooth hill finds.... A porpoise tooth.. And some shark teeth (front and back views... Looking forward to seeing what Y'All have! Tony
  6. 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.
  7. I found this claw, toe bones and other bones and teeth on the Brazos River, Texas.
  8. Thought id share my wifes and mine finds todays,the water level in the streams were really high due to the melting snow and was hard with the heavy current and really just wanted to get out with mother nature and enjoy the nature and wasn't really expecting to do so well with finding things,but the day was awesome and checked a few spots and came away with many teeth,a piece mosasaur tooth,drum fish tooth,fish vert,saw fish tooth,ray teeth and a nice brachiopod and a snail mold,,,,,its awesome to have lucky days like this.
  9. These teeth are so old they have mineralized and turned to rock. I put them on here many months ago but people thought they were just a rock so I polished them for months and had some other people look at them and agreed they are teeth but I haven't had any info given on them. Your input would be grateful. Thanks.
  10. Hello Everyone! I had the foresight to take my camera with me on my hunt yesterday. Before you ask - no, I didn't get a ground shot of the mastodon tooth. To be completely honest, I didn't know what it was until I got home...I probably wouldn't have even picked it up except that I noticed some symmetry. Anyway, I snapped a few shots of some decent shark teeth. Nothing too impressive, but steady finds all the same. enjoy - Here's a neat little whale tooth -
  11. I'm not sure what type of tooth this is, I found it in Venice, Florida. I've been thinking that it is a mako shark or extinct mako shark tooth, not exactly sure though
  12. Does anyone know what this is? To me it resembles a tooth of some sort. I found it in Indiana years ago and have just been going through some old finds.
  13. Hi everyone, can anyone please help me identify these mammal jaws? Not sure what animal they're from, their age or even where they were found, but I've ruled out them being from a mammoth, smilodon or gigantopithecus! To me they don't look that old, possibly 10-20 thousand years. I bought them as part of a little collection, some of them I'll post up for help identifying at a later date. They entire collection cost the princely sum of £1.50, oh and the 20p entrance fee I paid to get into the *car boot sale where I found them. Thanks again for having a look, thinking and responding. * Car Boot Sales or Boot Fairs are a type of market where the general public come together to sell unwanted stuff from the boot of their cars. Household and garden, items, nic-nacks (chotchkies), anything and everything really. Usually they take place ridiculously early on a Sunday morning on muddy fields (because it's always raining here) in the countryside. Inevitably you always come home with loads of unexpected stuff, and every now and then some treasure, otherwise known as Booty Magic. Thanks Bobby
  14. Hi everyone...I have taken these two teeth from Morocco that should be of Spinosaurus. Any information is accept. Thanks
  15. My wife and I are traveling north from FL to PA on April 3. Would anyone be willing to point us to a nice locality is SC? We will only have one day (Monday April 3) so no vacuuming of the site will occur! I can reciprocate with access to the Ernst Quarry in California. PM or email to tngray <at>
  16. Hi, just joined the forum after browsing some very informative posts. My wife and I found the items pictured on the beach on Oahu, Hawaii. They appear to resemble others' pictures of porcupinefish dental plates. I have found info on similar finds from the Philippines, Australia, and Florida, but nothing from Hawaii. What we are mainly wondering is whether these are fossilized or just hard due to being made of tooth material (we have not found any still attached to a jawbone). Sorry about no coin in the photo for scale, the largest specimen is about 1 inch or 2.5 cm. As we say in Hawaii, Mahalo for any insights!
  17. Mam mnóstwo znalezisk z tego obszaru. Powiem więcej zdjęć w sekcji odpowiedzi. 1. 2. 3.
  18. Can I please have an ID on these three teeth that were given to me in Tucson when I made a larger purchase?
  19. I will be heading to Charleston, SC in Apr and will only have a couple days to look for teeth. Unfortunately, diving for teeth is not an option for me. Does anyone have an idea of a site I might be able to search with a good chance to find a decent tooth or two? I am willing to consider a pay area if chances are good. Feel free to send a private message. Thanks!
  20. Sometimes it can take me a while to do a trip report, but i feel like better late than never right? I headed out to Douglas Point for the main reason of getting some sand material that Ive been told is good for micro teeth. I found the material that i was looking for and loaded my backpack(way to full). I had just made a new sifter for micros and was looking to test it out, and I know literally nothing about them so if anyone wants to chime in on some resources i can study go right ahead. Anyways, I did my regular fossil hunting and didn't find much other than some nice Sand Tigers. I had a disposable camera with me that day that I was trying to use the rest of so I took some scenic shots with it. Enjoy!
  21. 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:
  22. Hello I have recently inherited a small collection of fossils. I was wondering whether anyone could provide me an ID for these three similar items. Best wishes
  24. Hey all, I've never been to shark river in New Jersey before. I was curious if someone can give me an update on how it produces shark teeth fossils. Is it true That it's possible to find Megs and bigger teeth than say Big Brook in New Jersey? jm very interested in going, and if anyone wouldn't mind offering me suggestions, I'd greatly appreciate it. I do not need to know your lucky spots lol. I'm just a guy who has never been there before and could use some guidance. I just want to find a bigger tooth! Lol
  25. Just a brief update on the status of Sharktooth Hill (Ernst Quarries) in California. I meet with member Lee Taylor from South Carolina for a dig last week to do a bit of digging for teeth since he was coming out here for work and the majority of his tooth hunting was done underwater. The only quarry available was Slow Curve. Not much was found be either of us ( I. did get the largest I. planus that I have found there 2 1/8" ). There was another small family group digging there as well that day, six of us in all. Due to the heavy rains we have been encountering this winter, all the roads leading to the other quarries have been washed away and Rob stated he has no plans to repair them. Instead, he stated sometime this summer, he wants to build a road that goes directly to East Quarry from the entrance, thus bypassing that long winding "trail" to the distant quarries. With plans to excavate parts of East Quarry similar to what was done to Slow Curve to establish premium areas to dig. So to sum up this storyline, if you are planning to go to the Ernst Quarries "Sharktooth Hill area" anytime, keep in mind the other quarries are no longer available to visit and Slow Curve is the only one open. At least until something can be done to create a new road to access them.
