  1. Hey guys, I've been off the radar for awhile .. work you know .. been working on Siggraph for those of you who are familiar with software development. Just wanted to start a new topic here .. This one is right at 3.00" - 7.62cm C. carcharias Bahia Inglesa Formation South of Caldera Provincia Copiapo III Regio de Atacama Chile
  2. Hi, I was wondering if anyone would be able to help in identifying a few mammal teeth I've picked up at Hamstead during my last two trips there. There's four teeth in total (all found separately not in association with each other), the 3 larger teeth appeared to me to be 2 possible canines and an incisor. My initial ideas for ID of the larger teeth were Bothriodon as it is the most common mammal species from the Bouldnor Fm. and the incisor shows signs of being worn on the incisal edge suggesting it could be a herbivore? but I'm not sure. As for the smaller tooth I'm completely at a loss. It's considerably smaller than the other 3 and looks like a premolar but as for potential ID I'm stumped aha! I'll attach pictures below. I'd be really grateful for any help.
  3. Hey all, i am planning a trip to Calvert Cliffs in Maryland with my girlfriend, but I was curious if there were any guides that frequently assist people who have never been to the cliffs before. It looks a little intimidating, but perhaps that's because I've never been there. Would you even suggest a guide if one was available? Or is it not crazy to go without one? I just want to be safe there. Could you offer your best advice if I were to go by myself to let's say Brownie's beach? Obviously I'd love to come across a Meg, as I've never found a tooth bigger than 3/4 of an inch before. It would be a thrill id never forget. I most certainly don't want anyone to give up any secret spots, but I'd love to know your best advice on a newbie like myself looking for some better looking fossils. Lastly, do I need to be wading in water to search for megs? I really wanted to strictly search on land (obviously not directly in the cliffs as I know that's illegal, and I wouldn't even if it was legal due to ruining something so naturally pretty). Thanks so much everybody.
  4. two rows of teeth, second pic is the jaw inside.
  5. Hello, new to fossil forum, wondering if there is anyone out there collecting Cuban megs. Looking to possibly trade with other members who have teeth from rare locations. I have a collection of teeth from Cuba.
  6. Wow, let me tell you, today was an interesting day. I headed out to Douglas Point for the first time today(been to Purse several times) and man did I get a hand full. When we first arrived at the beach it was pretty choppy and a little windy. We made it past the first set of cliffs and found some beach and started searching. Thats when the wind picked WAY up. We kept moving and heading down the beach fighting violent waves and making our way through deep water with big waves with only hip boots on. lets just say we got a little wet, not the best thing to do in the middle of February. After a mile of walking or so we realized we wouldn't be able to make it back the way we came and our only option was to make it all the way to Purse and walk up the trail there to the road and then back to Douglas Point where we parked. Fortunately with all the wave action we were able to still find some teeth. Found some interesting material that I believe to be Scutes? Need to look it up haha. It wasn't until we made it back to the car that my Dad showed me he found his first PaleoCarcharodon! A little small but really not too bad of shape. It was a learning experience for sure. Feel free to jump in and help me with a little ID. Also took a few macro pics, enjoy! Boneheadz
  7. This show has NOT been canceled. This show is still planned. Be there!
  8. Hi guys recently i boughthis necklace of teeth fossil. Have no idea what it is. Anyone can enlighten me? They are about 2 inches long. Kay
  9. Hi, inpicked up these 5 mackerel shark teeth today. I don't have any collection data except that they are from Alabama. I was wondering if someone might be able to narrow down to genus, or maybe even species. Thanks for looking!
  10. Hello everyone, I haven't posted in a whiile, but I have been hunting a bit. I got out today for a couple hours along the river here in Charleson, SC. These finds come from a pretty well-known dredge site, the finds are usually poorly preserved but abundant. Once in a while this beach produces well-preserved finds. Today I managed to find some good stuff - a nice big stingray dermal denticle, and stout fish jaw, two teeth from the uncommon giant thresher shark Alopias grandis, several nice snaggletooth shark teeth Hemipristis serra, a pretty but mangled Carcharocles angustidens, and an absolutely beautiful (as of yet) unidentified whale tooth. Thanks for taking a look! SOSC "In situ" -
  11. 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:
  12. Hi everyone! I don't know why I have not posted these sooner as I have had doubts as to their true identity for some time. The first two teeth were found at Big Brook. After researching I felt that they closest resembled #1 bear and #2 beaver. The third tooth I found at Brownies Beach. This I felt was peccary.I am hoping those of you with more knowledge than I have could help me out here. Thank-you in advance. Dave
  13. 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.
  14. I have three items I can use help with ID. All were found in a Miocene area. First I am thinking may be a very worn whale vertebrae. It is 2 3/4" X 2 1/4". The second and third look like teeth to me. The one on the right is 6/8" X 7/8". I was thinking bison or horse? The one on the left I really am not sure. I picked it up as shark and then looking at it have no idea. Thanks for the help.
  15. I took the teeth and and other dinosaur material i won in Grand Christmas auction plus some teeth I already had and put together this display.
  16. So I will be heading to the Outer Banks specifically Corolla in a few months with a bunch of family. I would love to be able to introduce the Nieces and Nephews and my kiddos to Shark Teeth / Fossil hunting. Kids will be ranging in age from 8 yrs to 3 months old and about 10 of them. SO I am looking for some recommendations on spots that are closer to the northern Outer Banks ie Corolla... Key factors include: Distance/Time to arrive at location Easy of finding goodies Potential for bathrooms(not a deal breaker) Other attractions in the area. I have been recommended so far: Aurora Fossil Museum including Fossil pit Shark Tooth Island Top Sail Beach Onslow Beach (Acess is not a problem) South Beach Colonial Beach Westmorland State Park York River state park Matoaka Lake ( I have this listed I cannot find who told me thou) Colonial Park Fossil pit on Roanoke Island Currently Colonial Park Fossil Pit is winning due to fufilling most of the requirements... Could anyone please share their thought on these locations for the above described scenario? Does anyone one know how successful the Fossil Pit on Roanoke Island is? I did call the park and it is still there but hasn't got new material since last summer.(probably won't by the time I get there also) We don't need to find record breaking fossils tiny or common is ok as long as the success rate is pretty high. I can source plenty of hand tools for them to use and am currently building atleast 10 kiddo sized screens in 1/4 and 1/2 inch screen so they all will have one to use then take home. Can anyone recommend some kiddo specific gear I also might want to line up? Thanks!
  17. I have a question.....hopefully not a dumb one. I've been hunting for fossils here central Texas (Austin area) since I was a small child and I have never found a single shark tooth. Not a piece of one, not an imprint of one not a ghost of one.....Nothing!...Why? You'd think that with all the marine fossils everywhere you'd find sharks teeth while walking the family dog or checking the mail. Sooooo, why? Am I looking in the wrong spots? Any ideas?
  18. Got this shark tooth on the peace river. It has no serrations. It is two inches long even with the tip broke. Thoughts? Also included are other pics for ID. The big bone appears to be a bison phalanx ? The vertebrate is possibly a crocodilian? The small toe or foot bone, I speculate, may be from a bear or cat? I hope. Sorry for some of the cropped pics, I wont have access to a camera again for a couple days. If needed, I can post more in a couple days. Thanks for any input. Sorry, but I could only get these pics to resize and load. Still trying to figure out something I am completely new at.
  19. I was in Tucson over the weekend, and bought several flats of Moroccan bones. Lots of fish material, and initially I was thinking that this jaw might be fish as well. However now, I am not 100% sure. I'm still in the process of cleaning it up, so if more pictures are needed, I will be happy to supply them. Location: Morocco Size: Approximately 7" maybe a little more. PS, those are little lungfish teeth on the bottom of the plate.
  20. Premaxilla(snout) of a small mosasaur.
  21. First video Ive ever made from some footage at Purse SP a couple months ago
  22. I find these in the Mancos Shale formation in Colorado. I also find shark teeth and un-serrated teeth as well as various shells, ammonites, and trilobites. I have been unable to identify these. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  23. 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
  24. Pull this guy out of a creek this morning in Frisco, Texas. I think bison - anyone know? Also, does anyone know how to date? Apparently this guy didn't get the memo on how to brush his teeth. Ha!
  25. Thanks to some big event going on in Washington DC today , my wife and I had the day off. Despite some light rain, we decided to head down to the river for the afternoon low tide. We were hoping for another banner day like the last time we went to Stratford Hall in the rain...well, it was another banner day but for different reasons than the last time we were there. When we got down to the parking lot, we were surprised to find someone else there getting ready to hit the beach. No biggie, even though it is a small beach, one other person isn't bad...then 2 more vehicles pulled up. Oh well, we hoped the rain would keep others away but apparently not! I did a quick walk of the waterline then I went out into the water with my sifter. I can't say I found too much sifting, the normal small stuff. My wife found the dolphin vertebrae further up on the beach than I would have expected, I was surprised that it hadn't been picked by someone else. I got bored and started to do some "laps" on the beach. I think it was my third lap or so when I saw some barnacles on an odd angle. It was curious enough to me to reach down and check it out...I couldn't believe my eyes, a meg!!! My third one in three weeks and by far the nicest!!! I shouted to my wife to come check it out and as she came over, she looked down a grabbed the nicest shark vertebrae we have found yet. All-in-all, I pretty decent day despite the crowd! The total haul. Dolphin vert and Meg Front side of the Meg. I have seen where some folks soak the teeth in vinegar to get barnacles off, I think I'm going to leave them the way they gives it some character. Back side Shark Vert Looking for help with this one, I'm thinking it may be a thresher but I'm not sure. Thoughts? For actual size, look at my total haul picture, second row from the bottom on the left.
