  1. Hello, here I am again with a second tooth that a friend of mine bought few days ago. It's a quite small one but, for its price, it was a good purchase. The seller described it as belonging to a juvenile Carcharocles Megalodon (Miocene, Florida) but there're some doubts about that. What is your opinion on it? Does it belong to a Carcharocles Megalodon or to another specie (such as a Carcharhinus sp.)? Thanks for all the suggestions. (that's the only photo I have, if another one is needed I'll ask for it)

  4. Post Oak Creek ID

    I found this nice tooth at post oak creek the other day on a quick solo trip. I believe it is fossilized, but i have never seen a tooth like this. Does anyone know what I got here? Thanks
  5. Hi I was wondering if anyone could help me with the location of this Meg tooth. I know color alone prob won’t give me an exact location but I was hoping someone would be able to narrow it down to a couple locations. Also was $47 a good deal for this tooth? I know the forum doesn’t allow appraisals but I’m not sure if this question is considered a appraisal. If so then please ignore this part. Thanks for any help.
  6. Hi, I need ID help with six shark teeth found in Morocco. I'm thinking the two in the middle are Otodus, but I'm no expert.

  9. Today's Massive Desori Mako!

    Hello Everyone! It's been a minute since I've had the pleasure of finding any fossils worth posting here, but I was lucky enough today to squeeze in a couple hours of hunting. I noticed several sets of footprints around my usual hunting site - others had picked through the material recently. Undeterred, I made my way along the river visually scouring every square inch of exposed grey-brown Oligocene formation and gravel. Im glad I stuck with it because I was rewarded with several nice (albeit small) teeth from the extinct mega-tooth white shark, Carcharocles angustidens as well as a slew of smaller teeth. Then, just as I was ready to start hiking back to the car, I noticed the root of a VERY large mako tooth sticking out of the ground. When I pulled it up I was reminded of the sword in the stone..it just kept going and going. At a little over 2.8" it's one of the largest Isurus desori teeth I've ever personally seen. It's in great condition with exceptional color to boot. Thanks for taking a look and as always... Happy hunting! SOSC
  10. This is my latest work. I got this tooth from a diver and at that time it measured 5.99 inches long on the slant. It took a very long time to restore but I am happy with the results. It is 5.5 inches wide and the shorter side measures 6.7 inches. It has a cool wrinkled pathology at the corner of the blade. This is very common as teeth get bigger because they are very very old sharks.
  11. Guys, I just want to know whether it is really a Carnotaurus tooth because I haven't really seen them before (Edit:I had to put this new picture because I am indirectly advertising the auction site
  12. Mystery Petalodont

    I found this little tooth a few months ago in the Coal Measures (Westphalian A) of Scotland in a fresh/brackish water deposit and thought it might be a Janassa sp. of some sort but now I'm not so sure, the only other Petalodont genus's I'm aware of in the British Coal Measures are Ageleodus and Ctenoptychius but they both have multicuspid crowns, the tooth is in labial view and is 11mm across. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
  13. Shark tooth from Florida

    Here I am with a new fossil. It's nothing special but where I live sellers usually have only shark teeth from Morocco / North Africa. I'm not an expert in the "shark teeth identification" field and I can only make hypothesis about the specie it belonged to. Suggestions? What are the diagnostic characters that can be observed in it?
  14. Eagle Ford Flags Shark/Fish Tooth?

    My wife and I uncovered this possible shark/fish tooth on 12/3/2017 from basal Bouldin Flags weathered shell hash. It appears to be a broken tip of a very large Scapanorhynchus texanus. Although, I am not certain. There appears to be coarse striations from bottom to near the top of the fossil and very little bend in the fossil structure. It is very symmetrical and about 9 mm wide at base and 27 mm long from a slightly worn tip to the broken end. Pics are of three sides. Is there another possibility?
  15. 3.75" tyrannosaurid tooth. Indet.?

    Fossil tyrannosaurid tooth found last weekend. 2nd largest one I have found and largest in the area by at least an inch. Formation is belly river group. I believe i is out of dinosaur park formation layers and possibly mix of oldman and foremost formations. I'm thinking gorgosaurus or daspletosaurus???
  16. Tooth #6 ~ bovine?

    Hello everyone! The warm weather continues in the Midwest so I am still able to get out and do some river hunting into December with shorts and a long sleeve shirt. Pretty amazing. This is from DuPage River, western suburbs of Chicago. Northern Illinois. The same location where I have found the following for reference: I imagine these to be bovine. The one other tooth found so far has been wild boar/pig which was cool. I look forward to people's feedback. Here is today's find:
  17. Mammoth tooth

    I got this beauty in the post today, and I'm quite pleased with it. It came as part of a small collection of fossils, all purchased from the same shop, probably in the late 1990s. Although most of them came with the original shop labels, they contained very little pertinent information, and the label had come loose on this piece. I know absolutely nothing about mammoth teeth; please can anyone assist in identifying the species, how old it might be, or possibly even where it may have been found? I don't know if the preservation and species together would allow someone to make a determination as to where it could have been discovered. I was hoping it might be a North Sea example, but as I say, I don't have much of a clue. It's 9 inches long and 2.5 inches thick.
  18. Rodent Incisor

    Lower incisor from the theridmoyid rodent Isoptychus. Collected from a thin lacustrine horizon in the Lower Hamstead Member of the Bouldnor Fm. at Bouldnor Cliff, an early Oligocene locality on the northwest coast of the Isle Of Wight, UK. Identified by mammal specialist Jerry hooker from the Natural History Museum.
  19. Tooth

    I found this image and I am not sure what it is, could the specialist out the there help me, my friend claims it's a spino but I am not sure.
  20. Shark tooth ID

    My friend has always had this tooth in his collection that he found in gravel that was in a garden in Paris, it is obviously a shark tooth but we have no clue as to what species it is. And it would be helpful if someone could tell me what species of prehistoric shark it is.
  21. 3 years ago a very gullible me bought a lot on ebay containg what were sold as Spinosaurus aegyptiacus teeth. It was pretty much a disappointment, i paid a lot for teeth in a very bad shape, visibly glued together and with sediment still attached to them. I was a beginner at collectig fossils so I considert that purchase as false but needed step. However this particular tooth intrigue me. It's in a very bad shape, but it's different from the others more "pale" (and fortunately better) Spinosauridae sp. teeth that I had in my little collection. It was written that they all comes from the Kem Kem formation, but I don't know if that's true. Can someone identify the specie to which it belog? Thanks Fn8
  22. Fossil tooth ID

    Hello! I won these two teeth from an auction and I am curious as to what they may be. It was listed as a fossil hyena tooth and a smilodon (which I do not believe given the location of the find and anatomy of the tooth, although it does have serrations). Any help would be appreciated =) The teeth are said to come from the Gansu Province, China. Dimension: 1st: 7.3 x 1.9 x 1.2 cm 2nd: 4.6 x 1.3 x 0.8 cm
  23. I was thinking that this is a Cow Shark para-symphyseal, but upon taking the pictures and zooming in, I am not as sure as I would like to be. Please refer to the following three closeups. The slant length is about 5.57mm. -Bill H.
  24. I found this yesterday, November 26, down at Venice Beach, FL near the fishing Pier, along with an assortment of shark's teeth, coral and other interesting things. It looks like a tooth to me but I didn't think it was a shark tooth. Does anyone know what it is from? Thanks in advance! I'll have to post separate posts for different angles; I guess my files are large.
  25. My first giant Meg

    My wife and I went up to Bakersfield this past weekend with my parents. My parents were visiting from Florida, and since they are interested in fossils too we all went to Ernst Quarries on Friday, Nov 10. This was my parents' first time digging for ancient shark teeth so they struggled to find teeth at first. My mom is in her late 60's with arthritis and she didn't do any hunting even though we paid for her to go in the premium area. She did some sifting through the tailings, but really spent most of her time socializing with the other diggers, found out about their lives, what they did for work, etc. Then she would come back, tell us some old stories and entertained us while we hunted for teeth. I found some nice teeth, mostly mako's, but also walked around, checked out some other areas. My wife on the other hand picked a spot, and sat there hammering and chiselling away the whole morning, on the same spot. Shortly after noon, we were all hunting for teeth quietly. All of a sudden my wife, calm but in a rapid voice, said "Jesse". There was this restrained excitement in her voice, "check this out" she said. I jumped out from my hole immediately and let out a nervous chuckle. My mom perked up and asked "What is it?" I had not seen it yet but with some resignation I told her, "she found a meg." And indeed she had. My wife, hammering and chiselling away big chunks of layer at a time, had uncovered the tip of a meg. A whole chunk of layer had fallen out, and right there in the center of it was this fat tip, half an inch long, sticking out, serrated on both sides. We were elated. Every since we started digging for shark teeth 2 years ago, we have gone to Bakersfield at least 30 separate times, sometimes digging for 2 and 3 days at a time. We have moved at least 100 tons of dirt with a shovel. When I go digging, all I want is to find a meg. I have found chunks of 3 different megs, a half tooth here, a 1 inch piece there. Earlier this year my wife found a small meg, ~2.5 inches with part of the root missing. But we have never found a big Meg, let alone intact. Now my wife steps away from her spot, hands me a small brush and asks me to uncover it. After the initial shock and excitement of finding that serrated tip sticking out, the real drama begins. Your heart is racing, all kinds of thoughts flash through your mind: Is it whole? Oh please let it be whole, does it have a root? You are so excited, you want to get it out as soon as you can, but you don't want to damage it by accident, so you take all this extra care, which takes more time, and in turn makes you even more anxious and desperate. The people around you, watching you brush it off, are also excited and anxious. Finally, the tooth brakes free! It is whole! I pick it up with my gloved hands and my first thought is how heavy it is. Can't believe I am finally holding one. It looks great, I feel pure happiness. I got a meg everybody! After the initially euphoria, we wrapped the meg in a towel and put it inside a box to take it home. We have been starring at it every night and every morning ever since. I still can't believe we found a meg. My wife thought that once we found a meg, my consuming obsession with fossil shark teeth would subside. But finding this meg has only stoked the fire, now I want to go dig even more and find more meg teeth!
