  1. mako teeth for Singapore!

    These are some of the better mako teeth I found over the last year (mostly in the winter). Will be sending the prettiest ones to Singapore. My Singaporean friends have no shark teeth or fossils.
  2. crocodile tooth?

    I find a lot of broken teeth, but this one is reasonably intact. Almost an inch long, almost four-sided with two flatter sides, root rectangular with circular hole in center, enamel dull extending almost half-way from the (broken) tip. (cell phone and scanner didn't help much).
  3. rapp creek hunting

    Went out to my usual creek which had dried up. Too difficult to strain out the sand, mud, black leaves, and muggy and buggy. Decided to try a deeper creek, and while not as promising, it was pleasant standing in running water watching frogs, salamanders, tiny shrimp and crayfish in my strainer. Not much, one small mako/ great white. It was nice to find an angel shark tooth, which I had missed recently. Used to be the second most common behind sand tiger shark teeth.
  4. rapp creek hunting

    Ben away for a while, so wanted to get out. No signs of kids having been "at work". Guess too hot or not worth their effort. Spent three hours hunting, lots of gravel (few verts, drum teeth and only one broken angel shark tooth). Did get a cowshark, tiger and hemi tooth (rare at that site), two tiny mako/ great white teeth, the usual sand tiger spikes, skate teeth, and some triagular bull or similar shark teeth. A few interesting tiny shell and concretion pieces. Guessing crab but could it be shrimp @Carl ?
  5. rapp creek hunting

    Needed to get out and get some exercise. Relatively cool and dark in the morning, the full foliage shade was nice, surprisingly little water in the creek. I worked one spot hard, found a few partial ecphora, lots of sand tiger teeth, a few angel and drum teeth. A bonito nose a Tilly bone and what probably was once a bonito nose. One three pointed cowshark tooth which I lost when I fell. The highlight was a nice hemipristis (don't find many of those or tiger or mako in this site. And no megs). Bits and pieces drying to go through later.
  6. rapp beach hunting

    Finally had a nice day at the beach, very early low tide, light breeze, manageable surf, clear visibility. Yet I found next to nothing. The highlight was a nice coprolite burrow, in great shape. I was reduced to picking up sea shells (don't know if the one shown is even a fossil, but don't see many of this type). Few teeth. Nothing big, but there's always that chance! Perfect conditions BUT we have not had a good storm from the north to blow stuff up on this southern exposure beach in a month. There were few oyster shells visible and the debris was mostly black wood and pieces of iron (probably from 300 years of boats/ships). I'm a pack rat so also picked up some 'whale" bone and a weird little bone (?)- like piece that I need to examine more closely. I'm guessing I need a new spot until the crowds thin out and the weather shifts from the north. October?
  7. It was a little colder than we would have liked, but still had a fun time! Definitely going to have to return. We were there for a few hours, left just after low tide peaked. Found most of the stuff in one hole, decided to just keep digging it down and sifting with 1/4" mesh. Not the most productive day, but we also had a picnic which took a bit of our time away. Are the bits in the top right anything of note? They looked different so we decided to keep them.
  8. Rapp beach trips

    Went back to the beach twice after several days of north winds that should have pushed stuff on the beach. Was surprised that there was still snow on the ground away from the water. The surf was rougher both trips than I expected, lots of icy water in my boots both trips. Low tide was not that low (lunar? or need a decent south west wind?) The water was COLD and also cloudy, guessing stuff like shrimp coprolite "burrows" were further out; didn't find one on either trip. Highlight was today, found a nice cowshark tooth (but rootless), a broken cowshark tooth, and two almost one inch makos. Picked up more small "whale bone" than teeth each trip. Wind dropped at the end of the trip and I could have probably found more, but was tired and my feet were wet and cold, so gave it up.
  9. Carmines Island/York River Va

    Hello all, I am going on a trip with the family down to Carmine's Island for recreation but figured while I'm there why not do some fossil hunting. I mean, it just makes the day better anytime. We know of a location called Felgates Creek, which is Pliocene. Good? Bad? Only about 29 minutes away from me. Can we just find stuff on the coastal beaches? Thanks
  10. Looks like there is a small fossil expo next weekend Nov 17 - 18 in Northern VA GMU Fairfax / The HUB, 4400 University Drive, Fairfax, Virginia 22030 I think there are only 20 tables or so, still if I can find the time I might go. It may be the same one that was in CT early this month, but I did not see it marked on the calendar for VA next week on this site. The video on you tube looked pretty good, but not sure of the prices on the fossils. I did not see how I could add to the calendar though.
  11. Does anyone know? I hear there's many fossils there. On all of the maps, though, there's no name for the creek. I know it's random, but I just want to try hunting there with a friend. Thanks! ~RiseOfTheExtinct
  12. Trilobites WV

    Thinking about going to gore WV for trilobites. It is about a 2 hour drive from where I am now, richmond, and wondering if anyone knew if it would be worth the drive or knew a closer area from trilobites. Any information is much appreciated
  13. Found this over the holidays at a fossil site in Coastal VA that for me at least has never before this same trip coughed up any vertebrae material, that being a fish vert. The primary finds at this site are scallops, barnacles and some of the more common smaller mollusks common within the Miocene coastal / tidal finds.... this is a Yorktown formation locality... so, the question is, is the coiled material a fish coprolite or a tube worm? I’ve certainly never found any similar tube worms in my life so I’m hopeful it’s a coprolite but looking for some input from anyone w more definitive thoughts... happy New Years and thanks In Advance.
  14. NC & VA Rivers

    Can anyone explain why the majority of rivers in NE NC and SE VA have most of their high banks/ bluffs on the southern (right) sides? And please let me know if I have that wrong and they're not skewed that way.....but it does seem like that. Thanks.
  15. Fish vert Potomac river Virginia

    So I had just posted on this forum a few hours ago and that reminded me of one more thing I've been longing to figure out. Does anyone know what fish this vertabrae belongs to? It's the most complete and intact fish vert I've ever found, so I think it's important I get some info on it! Thanks, Conor
  16. Turtle shell or just shell?

    Found in southern VA. It's a little larger than an inch. Is this turtle, some other animal or just a shell? Thanks.
  17. Unknown Find

    I can't remember which beach in VA I found this so no cliff date. It reminded me of a picture I saw of shark cartilage but I could not refind the picture to compare. About 2 /12 - 3" in size. Any thoughts?
