  1. Good afternoon all, I wanted to get some opinions on determining if a tooth I am thinking about purchasing is either a T-Rex, or a Nanotyrannus tooth. I will post some pictures of the tooth, and supply what information I know about it. • The tooth is 1" long, with a round cross section. • Robust serrations. • Found in the Hell Creek Formation, Powder River County, Montana. Due to the round cross section and serrations, I have been leaning towards classifying it as a T-Rex tooth. I'm very interested to hear member thoughts.
  2. ID help please

    I have no idea. Found in North Charleston, SC in a recently dug pond. Any ideas?
  3. New tooth, don't think it's mosy.

    Found this tooth today at Post Oak Creek. Don't think it is mosasaur. Doesn't look right. Thinking it could be plesiosaur or croc? I have one worn plesiosaur I found a couple of years ago. Thoughts?
  4. Found tooth, not sure what it is

    Found this tooth while looking for shark teeth at a beach in North Carolina. Not sure what it is, dosent look like a shark tooth to me. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
  5. This is the nicest complete +5" specimen to come out of any quarry in Cuba for many years. That it came out of the Fines Limestone Quarry makes even more rare, this is the first tooth in over 18 months to be found there. The teeth that come out of this quarry tend to have beautiful colors and amazing preservation. Enjoy.
  6. Hello! I'm so happy to find this great forum. It's always nice to find a new site full of good people and great information. I have enjoyed spending time in nature for as long as I can remember. Walking along rivers looking for animals, fossils or arrowheads is one of my favorite ways to spend an afternoon. I was out today and came across this tooth. It struck me as being out of the ordinary. Looking through dozens of images on the internet it resembles cow, deer or taipur. This was found at the edge of a small river right at the shoreline. The river is in Illinois about 20 miles West of Chicago. Any help is greatly appreciated and thank you for allowing me to join and post here. Please let me know if you want more photos, further description of the item or where it was found. Thank you! Seb
  7. Went to North Sulphur River at Ladonia TX yesterday, found couple fossils need help ID. Thanks in advance. Got chased by flush flood twice. When fossil hunting after heavy rain please be extra careful. 1. mosasaur bone? not sure if there is enough to tell more. 2. claw? 3. fish tooth? 4. mosasaur bone? size: 1 1/2 in. x 1 in. 5. tooth maybe? 6. fish tooth? one side is more round, the other side is close to flat. 7. fish tooth? sharp edges on both side. 8. some kind of clam?
  8. Bison Tooth

  9. Various shark teeth?

    Hi, so I found a little Altoid tin at my dad's of what looks like shark teeth. There also appears to be some tiny vertebrae. I have no idea what they are or what they're called. They appear to be in really good shape. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thank you!!
  10. BVWhaleToothTXT.jpg

    Whale tooth recovered from Bone Valley mine in Florida. Order: Artiodactyla; Infraorder: Cetacea; Family: Physeteridae Genus: Indeterminate Broken missing end of root, 74 mm length
  11. Fossilized Grazing Mammal Tooth?

    Hello! Interning archaeologist, and we don't have fossils on hand for a comparison collection! I came across this partial tooth in a bag of faunal material. Could anyone help me out? I'm not familiar with fossil fauna, but I know this was some sort of grazer. Width is about half an inch. Much appreciated!
  12. Hey all I'm clueless on this one. The vertical ridges and complete roundness of this piece aren't like anything I've found previously. I found this in a creek bed that runs through Oaks, Oklahoma among mostly brachiopods and bryozoans. Beyond the fact it's most likely aquatic my best guess is it's the tip of a piece of coral, but that really is a guess. Thanks in advance for the help!
  13. Possibly tapir tooth?

    We found this tooth diving off Venice - the captain thought it might be from a carnivore like a direwolf. I thought perhaps it is a tapir tooth - the top looks right but the root is throwing me off. Thoughts?
  14. Hi, I saw this tooth for sale labelled as Coelurus and it is from the Morrison Formation (Salt and Pepper Quarry - 14mm long). I just wanted to see others opinions about this id. I can't really see the serrations that well and there isn't much on the internet about Coelurus teeth. Would love to have a Coelurus tooth if this is true.
  15. Fossil help

    Hello I found this recently and would like to ask for help in identifying what it might be I think it might be a tooth but not sure ?? Thanks matt
  16. No Idea...

    I'd love to know what this might be. So if anyone has any ideas, please offer them up. It was found around Giddings, Texas near a whole lot of petrified wood. The consistent response is that it's a small piece of a very worn mammoth tooth, but I just don't think so. The middle of it seems to have a flint-like quality. Thanks.
  17. Fish tooth?

    Hi all, I found this really weird thing two days ago on the Zandmotor (Netherlands). I think it's some kind of fish tooth, because (even though they don't look like each other) I think it might have had the same function as the Eotrigonodon fish teeth. Most of the fossils from the Zandmotor are Pleistocene, but sometime Eocene fossils show up (such as shark teeth). So it could be either. The thing is 3 mm long. Anyways, do you also agree with fish tooth? If yes, any clue on the species? Thanks in advance, Max
  18. Tooth Identification

    Beach combing on the Hudson River around Peekskill this weekend I came across this. It appears to be a tooth, I suspected it was maybe a horse. I'd love to know if anyone has thoughts on what it came from and whether you think it truly is a fossil?
  19. Shark tooth?

    Hello, I found this shark tooth on the beach while on vacation in Sea Isle City, New jersey. It appears to be very old and light in weight. Can anyone identify? Thank you!
  20. My Shark Tooth Collection

    Hello Everyone, I've been working to fill this antique machinist's tool box with my shark tooth collection for a little over a year, and it's finally shaping up nicely. Most of the teeth and fossils are self-collected and most of them are from the area around Charleston, SC. Hopefully I'll need a larger cabinet a year from now. Thanks for having a look! The case itself - The broken/B-grade teeth- Misc. fossils (non-shark) - Carcharocles angustidens, Isurus hastalis, Isurus desori, Isurus retroflexus - Alopias and Parotodus - Hemipristis and Carcharodon carcharias - Larger angustidens & Carcharocles megalodon / Teeth from other locations- Pathologies, oddities, juvenile/posterior angustidens & megalodon - Large angustidens & megalodon -
  21. Oxfordian shark teeth

    Hello everyone, I am working on my dissertation (finishing bachelor degree) focused on jurassic (oxfordian) fossils from Brno Hády quarry (central Europe, Czech republic) and I need help with shark teeth identification. There are 2 photos from my friend attached - he collected the longest shark tooth I ever saw from this site and an interesting "double tooth", which may belong to Hexanchiformes perhaps ? I have collected about 40 shark teeth, which vary in lenght (1-18 mm), but overall seem pretty much same to me. Some of the teeth are broken and eroded, but about 27 shark teeth are, I would say, good. I have made a Shark teeth album on my flickr account recently and would appreciate if you could take a look at the photos and tell me your opinions. Could all of these belong to Sphenodus sp. ? Two shark teeth from Brno Hády site were described in 1936 by Oppenheimer - Sphenodus longidens. Since then, nobody posted a single work about the teeth found there, even though they are way more common there today then in 1930´s. I am going to collect more samples, borrow samples from my friends and friends of my friends and compare them. Then, I am going to take some better photos of them all, describe the anatomy and see, what I can do (hopefuly I will come with some conclusions). I would like to make a good job even though that I am not going to be a paleontologist. And before all of this I would like to ask you about your opinions. (The problem is, that there is nobody in Czech republic who would currently specialize in jurassic Selachinomorpha - and I am not going to be a specialist myself, as some people would like me to. I am not going for master degree and would not like to spend too much time with sharks, because there are also BIvalvia, Brachiopoda, Cephalopoda, Echinodermata and micro-fossils I would like to process. I am not going to be a paleontologist, since I have a job in local observatory and I am perfectly happy about it. I am not asking anyone to do my job. I am just curious if there is someone with experience in shark teeth identification, who could tell me his/her opinions.)
  22. Shark Teeth ID

    Spent a few hours at Flag Ponds Nature Park near Calvert Cliffs, Maryland and found a few shark teeth. I'd be grateful for any help identifying these last two teeth. The first looks a little meg-like but is very small (perhaps posterior??) and the second smaller tooth has very interesting notches on either side of the tooth - I thought this might be Bronze Whaler. Thoughts?
  23. Big Brook, NJ - Tooth

    Wondering if anyone can help ID these two teeth. I found them last weekend sifting in Big Brook, New Jersey which is Cretaceous. Found plenty of shark teeth and belemnites, but couldn't place these two. They are both fairly small (the black one is 1cm in length, and the larger worn one is 2cm) but seem to be the same fossil type. I know that Croc and Mosasaur teeth can be found here but these looked a little different. There is a ridge that runs down both sides of each tooth, but the feature that confused me was the lateral striations on the tooth which seem to run around the circumference of the teeth. Would welcome anyone's thoughts?
  24. Florida Tooth

    This was found in the Peace River. It looks like a molar to me. My father thinks it is a whale tooth. Help us resolve this. I think the long pointy part is the root. Here are three photos. You can see growth rings in the bulbous end.
  25. 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!
