  1. What teeth is this?

    I have not measured the exact size yet but from the overall size and looks, is it possible that this teeth is from megalodon? Or just a big great white teeth?
  2. Greetings! I am new to fossil hunting and have been doing a couple beach hunts in North Carolina with some success. I finally made it to Greens Mill Run for the first time and was not disappointed. My two buddies and I each came away with some interesting finds. Their very first sifts included the Mosasaur and Sawfish teeth, respectively! What are the odds!? We spent 5 hours on the river and found many smaller teeth and tons of belemnites. At our last location I pulled up this megalodon tooth! (almost whole darn it) My first megalodon piece that nearly resembles a whole tooth! Looking to plan another trip out there soon, if anyone is interested in linking up. PM me!
  3. ID help Peace River finds

    I have four specimens I found yesterday in the Peace River, FL that I need some help with on a positive ID. First up is what I believe is a 4" fragment of a mammoth tooth with a long root? Next up a nicely colored Bison upper molar? I am hoping for an ID on the following Vert that I think is cetacean? Finally, what I first thought to be a vert when pulled from the river. I now have doubts due to the various indentations on the surface. I am pretty confident it is bone but not sure what. Looking forward to hear what others think!
  4. North Carolina Teeth??

    Found these fossils in the river in North Carolina. No idea what they are, doesn't look to be shark teeth.
  5. Granddaughters Collection

    My granddaughters collection has really took off in the new year. We have ran out of room on the table and now expanding elsewhere in the house. With the mammoth tooth we received today It had gone up a notch. She had a huge collection of petrified wood also.
  6. So I recently made a post showing some of the teeth I pulled from the Peace River over the holiday break at the end of 2019 ( link below ). I love Megalodon teeth with a passion. Like many other hunters, they are my goal when I go out fossil hunting. I have found though that river teeth are much more fragile and lighter than most land found teeth. I'm not sure if that is due to properties in the water. Maybe over time the rivers wash away some of the minerals in the teeth making them more fragile and worn down. Either way after my 3 day river hunt I was happy with the haul of Meg teeth that I had found but only 2 out of the 29 teeth I found made it to the keep pile. The rest hit the broken bin for later projects. Feeling dissatisfied with the quality of my finds I set out for one more day of hunting. Christmas day was perfect. The weather was nice and I had a new land site in mind that I wanted to explore. So I left early in the morning so that I could explore as much as possible for the whole day. After about an hour hike I came across this vein of rock that looked to be a layer of fossils. I mostly found worn down Dugong bones and fragments but I knew that meant Megalodon was not far behind. After about 20 minutes of searching this area I found my first tooth I have learned from hunting land sites how easy it is to stay in one spot once you find one tooth. You think "oh this area is so large I should stay here and hunt. If I found one, there are more here." But land sites I have found are not like the rivers. Fossils don't collect in one spot like they do in moving water. So I chose to explore more of the new area so that I wouldn't miss out on other finds. After 6 hours of finding nothing but one more broken meg and a few small teeth, I chose to loop back to my first and only good spot of the day to search it for one more hour before heading home. I chose to take my time in this spot and really look at the gravel and dirt. I had found one good tooth in this area so there must be others. However what I thought was an untouched area turned out to not be. While in my last hours of hunting time I spotted two other hunters staring at the ground just like me on the top of a hill. Little did they know I had already looked at the area they were searching. I lost some faith that I would find much in this area now knowing that other people already knew about this spot and were hitting it, however I still searched for a while. I think it's fair to say that when land hunting most fossil hunters including myself only surface collect. It's too hot and time consuming to dig in one spot looking for teeth. It's much better to let mother nature wash them from the sand and gravel as it rains. Seeing that this area had been hunted before I realized why I was not seeing many teeth on the surface of these gravel piles. Either way I used my last hour well, looking in the cracks and water run off areas in the hills where teeth would collect as they get washed out and then all of a sudden I spotted a very exciting looking rock poking out of the side wall of one of these erosion points. I dug around the rock and to my surprise and excitement it was exactly what I was hoping for. A fully intact and untouched Megalodon tooth. Out of all of my Bone Valley teeth I have only ever found one that I would consider almost perfect. It has all of the serrations and a fully intact root with a beautiful marbled grey and blue coloration. However like most Bone Valley teeth it has a tip ding. That is part of Bone Valley though since it was a baby Meg Nursery full of food to crunch their teeth on. So when this new tooth came out of the sand on Christmas day it was the perfect gift for all those hours out on the hunt. It is fully intact with only some small feeding damage on the top right side of the tooth, it even has the tip!! This tooth measures 4.25 inches, making it now my biggest and most complete tooth yet. I am so happy with this find. However it dried sort of dark greenish brown so I am thinking of setting it out in the sun to let it lighten up. The part that had been exposed to the sun is really nice and white so maybe more sun will bring out those nice colors. Let me know if you think that is a good idea or not. Here's a link to the river hunt I posted the other day.
  7. Now that my boys are getting older and enjoying hunting for sharks teeth a little bit more frequently, I would like to tie it in with an over night camping trip. We have been to Calvert Cliffs and Brownies Beach and they really enjoyed themselves. We are willing to park and hike a few miles to a location. It does not have to be a pull up, park and camp (I'd actually prefer it not be that).
  8. Identification of these teeth

    Hello! Today i have found on sea these teeth, can you tell me of which animal thery are?
  9. mammal canines identification

    hello everyone, recently I found this lot of canines for sale. the owner knows nothing about them. Now I know that it's really difficult to identify a genus from a canine tooth, but maybe there is someone with more experience than me about florida pleistocene fossils that can help me. thank you for anyone one who can help me.
  10. Need help identifying couple of fossils

    Found these along the Colorado River near El Campo, Texas. MY dad and I think it is a tooth of some sort. We have found mammoth and mastodon teeth here. Let me know what you all think it is as we cannot decide. Thanks!
  11. Shark tooth

    Hello! Help with ID, please. Toot is worn but has interesting (big) root. Ukraine, Lviv region. Thanks in advance!
  12. Teeth identification

    Found these teeth all within 50 yards of each other, they are all larger than the previous teeth I posted. Still horse or another animal?
  13. Hi all My son and I were looking through some teeth from the NSR and want to get your opinions on this one. We first thought that this was a mosasaur tooth; however, someone suggested that it may be a plesiosaur/elasmosaurid tooth. We wanted to gather some more opinions since we have no idea what it is. The tooth measures 16 x 6 x 6 mm. Thanks and Happy New Year!
  14. I was searching the internet earlier today and found out that all Aublysodon teeth where that of Tyrannosaurinae juveniles. From Two medicine formation Daspletosaurus horneri, from Judith river formation and Dinosaur park formation Daspletosaurus sp., and from Hell creek and Lance formations T-rex, and so on... The study was done by Dr. Phil Currie, hope this helps with teeth like this!!
  15. My Oddball Kem Kem Theropod Teeth

    I know specimens from the Kem Kem are some of the most common things found on the market, but with so much undescribed material, it's a favourite location of mine for finding those fossils that are just a bit odd and often overlooked. So here are some of my theropod teeth from the locality to date, that don't quite fit the usual Spinosaurid & Carcharodontosaurid profiles: To start with, a theropod indet. tooth with a very unusual profile, and unique (for the locality) mesial carina that ends naturally above the midline.
  16. Wants for 2020

    As 2019 is coming to an end I am curious what is on people’s want list for next year. Did you get everything you wanted or is there still that elusive fossil eluding you? It’s been a varied year for me and a lucky one at that as I think it has been for many other members looking at some of the incredible fossils you have obtained this year. Hopefully 2020 is as successful if not more successful than 2019. I hope you all have a Happy New Year and bring on 2020!
  17. Shark tooth for ID

    Hello! Help with identification, pleaase. Ukraine, Lviv region. Scale in mm. Thanks in advance!
  18. A couple of summers ago I found what is maybe my favorite Mississippian/Lower Carboniferous Visean shark fossil in Fife, Scotland and with some time off over the holiday season and pretty grim weather I've finally got round to prepping it When I found it there were three damaged but very near complete large Saivodus striatus teeth, the root minus the central cusp of either a smaller S. saivodus or possibly a Cladodus mirabilis and a partial unidentified spine. I've exposed and restored the three big teeth to make them look complete again as best I can for now and exposed the rest of the root of the smaller one but will leave it as is along with the spine. Unfortunately I cant find the original pic of it as found but originally the tooth on the far left was missing the tips of the lateral cusps and the central cusp from about half way, the middle tooth was missing about half its root and one lateral cusp, and the tooth on the far right was missing a chunk out of one side including the lateral cusp and the opposite lateral cusp. I used resin for the restoration which I carved and then painted with water color and acrylic paints and finished the cusps with a coat of gloss varnish and the roots with matt varnish. I'm fairly happy with the restoration, it does seem to look quite a bit better in real life as photos seem to show up the restoration a lot more. The teeth are on a nice big block I've cut a base on in a thin layer around what seems to be a ball of clay with calcite infilled septarian cracks again, there's a few different types of invertebrate such as bryozoans, crinoids, brachiopods and a nice coral which I love finding teeth with as it gives them context. The block is 14cm tall and the teeth are all 2cm x 2cm.
  19. Unknown teeth

    From an estate sale that I acquired some rock boxes. Here are some teeth. The only tag that IDd them was .... wait for it.... teeth! Any ideas? Again, these don't go with my collection but would be nice to ID a little more.
  20. Sharkes tooth

  21. A profusion of sharks teeth

    Some things get my attention. In this case it is the word "profusion" that gets my attention. The question is are they larger than 1/4"
  22. Hello, I was able to purchase my first fossil ever, and its a megalodon teeth, while i do trust the place sells authentic stuff, i am always doubting whether the things i buy are real or not. it would be great if someone is able to to identify whether if this is real to me. Thanks!
  23. Tooth Restoration

    I apologize ahead of time if this is not the correct spot for this question. Does anyone know someone who can do restorations on teeth? And preferably quality restoration, not hacked together garbage. I don’t think we can publicly put names on here. So please feel free to message me. Thank you everyone ahead of time! Sincerely, J
