  1. Shartooth Hill ID

    I have this planus tooth with a bonus tooth stuck in the root matrix. Was wondering if anyone could ID the smaller tooth? thanks! R~
  2. My first prep: unknown rhaetian tooth

    I was sent a chunk of material from the aust bone bed of the U.K. by @JohnBrewer (thank you very much!) to practice some prep on, mostly for the large bone and coprolites. I was also told to soak the material in vinegar to get all the little microfossils. I've gotten started by breaking off some chunks (I haven't gotten the acetone for my consolidant yet so I'm not touching the bone just yet) and soaking them in concentrated vinegar (30% acetic acid I believe, strong stuff). After an initial soak I saw this little guy poking out the surface. I saw the opportunity to prep and got right to work (being the forgetful procrastinator I am, I haven't bought a new scribe yet so for the first half I used a blunt dental instrument, the next fourth using a sowing needle, and the last with the needle duct taped to a piece of metal). Here are some pictures of the prepping process. I at first got excited thinking it was a plesiosaur, but I doubt that because of its size (6mm). It's hollow, and has striations similar to the carinae of a crocodile (don't think they have those there). Severnicthys is one possibility I stumbled upon. Opinions are welcomed and encouraged!
  3. Cretaceous Tooth

    Here is a tooth that I recently found at a Late Cretaceous site in North Mississippi, in the Coon Creek Formation. I really don't know what to think of it, except that it appears to have some sort of enamel. I haven't seen anything similar before, so I am asking for some extra opinions! Most material at this site is marine, but the occasional terrestrial botanicals and fragmentary dinosaur remains do poke up around North Mississippi. The tooth is roughly 3/4 cm. Of course, I am always hoping for dinosaur! @Troodon And teeth are his namesake! @Al Dente Front of tooth (my reference point is kind of arbitrary). I apologize for the matrix still on it, it is very tough and I don't want to damage the tooth. Back of Tooth Chewing surface
  4. Big brook nj help please

    Found many teeth at Big brook nj. Lots of fun. I'm new to this. Any help would be appreciated. I think all the done shaped objects are just rocks but I thought I'd pass it by the forum. The object that looks like a seed is fossilized it is not modern can't scratch it, doesn't burn. Thanks in in advance. Jason. If you'd like more pics just let me know
  5. Found on the beach

    Found this at the beach near Jacksonville Florida - I was thinking it might be a shark tooth - its about 2 inches long. The picture is of it sitting next to my Gear Head Nano wireless mouse.
  6. This is a fossil i found washed up on the beach at Amelia Island, Florida. It looks like a molar of some sort. Can someone help identify? Thank you. --Mike
  7. Sea cow rib?

    Please help identify. Found in myrtle beach SC, on the north side.
  8. Mastodon Tooth

    So I found this tooth over a decade ago while canoeing down a local river. I always have had little flakes coming off and I finally decided to see if I could find a way to keep it from falling apart. It is only flaking off from the root of the tooth. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. Found them shark teeth today

    Need help sortin what type of critters these came from creeks up here on Potomac river. I’m guessin some ancient mako.. snaggletooth... tiger? Much obliged. Cheers, Cleetus
  10. Carcharodon megalodon?? Kiev. Ukraine.

    Hi! I found this tooth in sand where I collected striatolamia, otodus and other shark tooth fossil. But this separated I never found before. This is carcharodon megalodon?? Thank!)
  11. Shark?

    Found in washed sand. The last time when i share pictures with this quality..in the next time - only good quality!
  12. Baby Diplodocus Tooth

    I was out digging for dinos this weekend and found this exquisite little guy. It's 1/2 an inch long, some of the better preservation I've seen in the Morrison. I'm pretty sure it Diplodocus, small chance it's Apatosaur also.
  13. Hello, I recently saw this tooth online. It's from the middle triassic layers (upperst Muschelkalk ) of Würzburg in Germany. I only think it's labeled incorrectly? What do you think? Is this a real tooth and what determination would you give to it? It measures 7 mm
  14. New Jersey Cretaceous shark tooth ID

    Hello! I recently found this TINY (the entire rock is about the size of a U.S. half dollar) shark tooth in matrix. It is from the Monmouth County Cretaceous. It has two cusps on either side, they are partially covered in the matrix but I'm having difficulty removing it so I am not planning any further prep. Anyone know what type of shark this is?
  15. Sawfish teeth or Reptile teeth?

    I found this teeth in a marine sedimentary sandstone (Cretaceous.Palaeocene) and I don't know what is it.
  16. Steneosaurus tooth

    From the album Holzmaden

    A beautiful about 2 cm long Steneosaurus tooth from the quarry Kromer near Holzmaden (Lower Jurassic).
  17. Looking for unprepared dinosaur teeth and bones for trade. Pm me if you have any. Thanks.
  18. Serrated Kem Kem Teeth

    Was hoping to get a little help narrowing down an ID for two strange teeth from the Kem Kem Beds. I have no idea what the first might belong to, but wondering if the second might be some sort of serrated croc tooth? Hope the pictures are clear enough. The first tooth measures a tad over 9mm and serrations are 3 per mm. This second one is 14mm with 2.5 serrations per mm. Both teeth look to be complete, minus the root.
  19. Pearly Whites for Great Whites!

    I had a good weekend on the river this past Saturday and Sunday. I did some fishing and scouting for new dig spots. I have yet to find my own place where 1. no one else knows/digs that I am networked with 2. that produces decent quality and OK quantity. Saturday evening that was checked off from my fossil hunting bucket list, though. I plugged down the river in my lil 14' jon boat, saw some shells atop a bank that looked familiar to the fossil pecten in edgecomb county and made a quick dash to the shore! I had quite the struggle among the brush and trees between myself and these barely visible shells - but I made it, grabbed a very nice C. madisonius with some little barnacles atop of it. As I'm climbing down I spot something embedded in the rock/hardened clay and got so excited I literally laughed out loud. MEGLADON TOOTH! -This I was not expecting, but welcomed! I pried it out, really neat color and sadly chipped away about a third - but still in good condition and a promising sign as I looked around and also found two beautiful little great whites almost pearly white! Such unique colored teeth for this part of eastern NC as normally my finds, like GMR, are darker grays and blacks and then you have the aurora teeth and hour east that these appeared more like in color but still different. I would love to know the minerals responsible for this coloration here. Anyhow, I returned with my Good digging partner, Rick, Sunday and we found a few more things that were alright. More to explore - more to come I'm sure!
  20. Deinosuchus ?

    Found last week in SE North Carolina, Campanian,Tar Heel formation. I was thinking Deinosuchus but has globidens characteristics also. total length is 2 in., Dia. is 1in. 1/2 in round cavity, length of enamel alone is 7/8 in. Can someone confirm what it is? Thanks
  21. Paleozoic fish tooth?

    I found this little tooth while going through some bulk sample from Jacksboro, TX, which is a Pennsylvanian area. I have found shark teeth there, but this looks more like a fish tooth. It reminds me of an Enchodus tooth, but I am not aware of any that were in the Paleozoic. Any ideas? The scale hash marks are 1mm. Thanks for any help.
  22. Juvenile Megalodon?

    Hi- I believe this is a small Megalodon tooth? Please correct me if I am wrong. Found on a beach in the Chesapeake Bay. The sides are smooth, but I am not sure if they are worn.
  23. What kind of shark tooth is this?

    I found this at Brownies Beach in MD. Does anyone know what kind of shark this is from?
  24. Partial Jaw with Tooth.

    Howdy all~ This is another piece I found on the James River recently. Looks to be part of a jaw..with a snaggle tooth? ..Well that would be my guess. Very curious to know the species. Thanks for the help.
  25. Fossil Wood? Or something else?

    Hi all, I recently found this on a trip to the Jurassic Coast at Dorset and have been intrigued by this find, i'm not an expert on fossil identification and was wondering if there was anything significant about this fossil. it strikes me as being either fossilised wood or an infilled burrow of some kind, however the shine, shape and downward strikes are leaving me somewhat puzzled. i would be grateful for all your potential ideas as to what this could be.
