  1. Was able to get the kayak out and if it's not the constant rain it's the heat!! But maybe my eyes are seeing something that's not actually there. It could be a ridiculously tiny Carcharias as well? The tip does not look broken even though the tooth is pretty heavily worn. I don't think I've found one this small though. I haven't found any teeth similar to this so that's why I'm asking the pros! The little cusp kinda throws me although I don't think the root has the defined c shaped that a Thresher would. I'm all kind of confused... it's amateur hour over here! The juvenile-ness of it makes it difficult for me. (also my lack of skill... yet!). Front: Rear: "Underneath:" From above: Thanks so much!
  2. Crocodile tooth or plesiosaur

    This tooth came from a NC quarry known for both Eocene and Cretaceous fossils. My first inclination was a croc tooth. Is it possibly plesiosaur? Seems like the shape could fit either.
  3. Mammal Tooth/Jaw ID help needed!

    Hello! This is my first post so I hope I am following all of the protocol:) . My family and I are amateur surface hunters. Mostly along the beaches searching for shark's teeth, mouth plates, and various other fossils. My father found this on Edisto Beach, South Carolina this past weekend. It was partially buried in the sand, but he could see the outline under the sand and pulled it up. He discovered what appears to be a partially fossilized mammal jaw. It looks to be a horse or other hooved animal jaw. I was unable to find a similar looking tooth online. These are just the photos I snapped on the beach. I can post better ones if needed. Would love any help or pointing in the right direction! Thank you for your time!
  4. Deltadromeus agilis tooth

    Hello. I just recently acquired this tooth that is labeled as "Deltadromeus agilis." I've been doing some research on Deltadromeus and what I've determined is it's a very unknown dinosaur. The seller labeled it as a raptor tooth, but so far I've found deltadromeus to be considered a tyrannosaur, ceratosaur, coelosaur, or abelisaur. Which one of these is the most accurate ID of Deltadromeus? Any help would be great!
  5. Is this some sort of tooth?

    I found this on a knoll overlooking a lake. It looks a little like a fossilized tooth to me. Any thoughts?

  11. Acrodus tooth

    From the album Triassic fossils

    This is a 1.2 cm long Acrodus tooth with a nice structure ! Those are very common in some layers in the "Bonebed" in Zwingelhausen but bigger ones are quite rare.
  12. Tanystropheus tooth

    From the album Triassic fossils

    This is my first Tanystropheus tooth from the "Bonebed" of Zwingelhausen. Its about 1.5 cm long. Another picture:
  13. Tooth fossil

    Please help me identify this fossil. We found it off an island in Tampa Bay. It is obviously some sort of tooth. My family and I are just beginning to enjoy fossil hunting so our knowledge is very limited. We are thinking it could be either a horse or camel. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  14. Nothosaurus tooth

    From the album Triassic fossils

    This is my biggest Nothosaurus tooth until now with a length of 2.5 cm ! Its from a quarry near Zwingelhausen from the "Bonebed" (Triassic). Some more pictures:

  16. Is this a tooth?

    Looks like a possible molar
  17. Hey guys I've got an update on the trex tooth I bought a few weeks back! To restate general info, the tooth is 1.5 inches and was found in Lance Creek FM Wyoming. I am once again asking the question if this is indeed a Rex tooth or not now that I have it in hand. Here's the pictures below
  18. Colorado: Tooth or Bone?

    Hey everybody! Thought I'd ask you all what you think this is. It was found 100 feet away from the St Charles River south of Pueblo, Colorado. Found half showing on top of the sand. At first I thought this was a shark tooth, but after looking through hundreds of online pictures of shark teeth, I can't find a single picture that looks identical. This is also very porous and lighter than a bison molar. It's shaped like a shark tooth with the front having two sides that angle up to the middle, and the back being one side. Only half of the top of it has a porous "root" and the other half curves down and has no rooting.
  19. Pattern on tooth fragment?

    I don’t expect this tooth fragment can be identified but I’m curious if any one has ever seen enamel like this? It seems to have a thin clear outer layer and the layer below has the dots. Found Myrtle beach where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene fossils can be found.
  20. E. cocheuteuxi or E. longirostris?

    This little eurhinodelphis tooth has been in my collection for a while and I haven't been able to put a species ID on it. I can't find much information on the genus, all I know is it's got two species both mentioned in the title. Are there any cetacean enthusiasts that can help me out? The whole tooth is about 3/4 inch long, my only locality information is Belgium.
  21. Mystery Petalodont tooth

    I had a hunt for some shark teeth the other day in the Lower Carboniferous/Mississippian of Scotland and found an interesting Petalodont I havent been able to identify, its very similar in shape to Petalodus acuminatus but has no imbricated basal ridge between the crown and the base and the ornamentation on the crown is also very different from P. acuminatus. Any thoughts on what it could be would be greatly appreciated!
  22. Found on SC beach

    Found this on the beach & not sure what it is. Any ideas please?
  23. Hello all! This is my 4cm Timurlengia euotica tooth from the Bissekty formation in Uzbekistan. It is complete and has the tip. I am willing to trade it for theropod teeth or Dino fossils of the same value. Other complete Tyrannosaurid teeth would be awesome. I want to trade it because I have two of these species and wish to have another. Here are some pictures, PM me if you are interested or need more details, pictures or info. I can also consider selling it but I would prefer a fossil for fossil trade. Thanks!
  24. Yesterday I went over to Bakersfield ( Sharktooth Hill locality) East of the river. Just for kicks, I grabbed a small amount of matrix chunks to see if any small fossils could be found. Fast forward to my prep lab ( kitchen) for a cleaning. I was surprised at the abundance of tiny fossils in there and they have the same coloring as the larger teeth.lots of reds, yellows, sable browns, etc. Tonight I did some sorting and looky what I found. A very small Cow Shark tooth only 6mm long.
  25. Picked this tooth up last month, just had a chance to take some pictures in proper light. Do not have the tools to clean matrix off root safely without damaging , so waiting for a friend to do it properly. The tooth measures 4.1" long and has amazing colors that I have never seen from this location.
