  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. Hey guys, We found this tooth today sifting in the brook at Monmouth Co. It's pretty beat up, but we're hoping to get an ID on it! Thanks!
  3. Hello everyone, I need a little help figuring out what this fossil is. It was found at a dive site off South Carolina. I'm guessing some kind of whale tooth? Thanks a bunch, Jay
  4. Both items are from Miocene period. Is the top item a crocodile tooth? It is 1 1/4" long and about 3/8" wide on the bottom. The bottom item is 3/4" long and about 3/8" wide on the bottom. Thanks in advance.
  5. Recent auction post labelled 'MOSASAURUS FOSSIL TOOTH ROOT BONE'. I'm a little new at this so bear with me but - The root bone looks real but the teeth look placed. Is it a red flag that one tooth curves to the left while the other curves to the right?
  6. My family and I usually visit the Frio River in Leakey, Tx every summer. A few years ago we were all set to go swimming but upon arriving we saw that the part of the river we usually frequent had dried up. I decided to make the best of it and explored the dried river bed looking for anything interesting when this isolated chunk of rock caught my eye. I picked it up off the ground, took it home with me, put it in a drawer and forgot about it. A few months ago I found it while doing some cleaning and realized it had to be something more than just an oddly shaped rock. I cleaned it with water and a toothbrush after reading online that that's a simple way to clean fossils. A friend of mine with limited knowledge of fossils suspected it was some kind of fossilized coral or sponge. What I originally thought was matrix does look a lot like syringopora, but I can't find pictures of any prehistoric coral fossils that match the appearance of that hot dog in the center! I saw a sperm whale tooth on this forum that looks similar but I'm not sure if what I found feels like a tooth. It feels way too smooth to me. I love fossils and I own some shark teeth, coprolite, and a little trilobite, but those were all bought. If whatever this is turns out to be something, then it would be the first fossil I've ever acutally found myself. I'm still really new to this so please forgive me if I am asking silly questions or submitting this incorrectly. Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Hi there. I got a large lot of teeth from Morocco today. They were mostly shark, but with quite a large number of mosasaur teeth, some ray plates, crocodile teeth, bone material etc. There are several pieces I couldn't identify, but this is the most puzzling one of the lot. It's obviously (to a layperson like me, and keeping in mind that I don't have a clue) a mammalian tooth. As such, it can't be contemporary to the other material. However, it does have lots of matrix jammed into the top of the tooth, which is solid rock and not just sand. It's indistinguishable from the typical phosphate bed matrix, to my eyes. My guess would still be that it's fairly modern, but does anybody have any ideas please? Thanks in advance.
  8. I found an unusually shaped tooth in the Belgrade quarry a couple of weeks ago. I am a baby fossil hunter, but it appears to be some type of very small shark or ray tooth. I am having trouble getting clear pix, but these are my best ones. The middle pic is the bottom of the tooth. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. I got this Titanother tooth the other day and I wanted to clean some of the matrix off. I was wondering if anybody had any tips or tricks on how to do this. What kind of tools should I use. Should I soak it in water first? Should I just leave the matrix on there? Any advice and tips would be appreciated. Thanks Tom
  10. I have been staring at this thing for a while and looking at all of my Paleozoic vertebrate books, but I am officially stumped. It has the color and texture of the typical holocephalan/chondricthyan teeth that I find here, but the morphology is just not matching anything I have seen before. It is possible that it could be a part of a trilobite or some other invert, but I am not very well versed on my invertebrates. Further, the invertebrates are very rarely this color here. Bangor Limestone Mississippian (Late Carboniferous) East TN Size of about 0.75cm @JimB88 @Archie
  11. Any ideas as to what this is? I'm a novice. Thought it might be part of a mammoth tooth but the roots-if that's what they are-look kind of distorted and not as uniform as what I've seen. Maybe some sort of trace fossil? Found in a stream bed in N. NJ. Thanks!
  12. Found this and I think also a deer tooth? in the peace river. Dugong is my guess. Thanks for any input.
  13. Hi All, While perusing the web I came across this Spino tooth that I would like some second opinions on. It's a good size tooth and I am wondering whether the root is authentic or if maybe this is a composite tooth. Any thoughts? Thanks as always!
  14. If anyone could help me identify this, I would appreciate it. Can post more pics if needed. I won this at an auction.
  15. HI, just wondering if this is a dinosaur tooth? We found it on a beach on the South Coast of NSW. To me it looks like a spinosaurous tooth, but my hubby thinks it it can't be.
  16. Hi everyone! Just wanted to share with you all this great Triceratops tooth I recently acquired at a very low price! This is the first dinosaur tooth in my collection, and though it's small, I really like it!
  17. I found this in North Carolina, I think near Greenville, NC. Greens Mill Run many moons ago. I have seen this online before, but can't remember what it is? It's part of a fish, but that's all I can gather. Thanks, David
  18. I have these two teeth, the only data I have is that they are from the phosphate mines of morocco. wondering if they are small otodus or something different. Thought and opinions appreciated. cheers!
  19. Hi everyone. I found this tooth on an Oregon beach near Yachats in the winter of 2015. It was in the wrack line. It has never been properly identified, although I've heard some interesting theories/guesses from saber tooth to sperm whale to walrus. It is 3 inches long. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!
  20. This tooth is about 2 1/4" found near a wash in Arizona. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  21. I saw this Pterosaur tooth and supposed Pterosaur bone fossil, and I'm wondering whether is real. Please, I'd like your thoughts on this! Thanks to everyone who can help me!
  22. Good morning to everyone! Sorry my poor English ... Please like to hear from you. This my Mosasaur Jaw Bone Fossil is real? Thanks to everyone who can help me.
  23. I thought I would post my collection of self found fossils. This will be a work in progress. I will start with some of my favorites. Here are my megs from Brownies Beach, Calvert Cliffs Maryland
  24. 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.
