A find from earlier this year. Creek bed on the surface here in West KY, (Graves County). Got it because it was different. (I started truly hunting fossils for my son who loves dinosaurs more than anything.) I had no idea as to what it might be but the shape kept me thinking I'd seen it before. I happened to be looking at Mosasaurs one day & happened to see a Moroccan peg-toothed specimen. Researched if they might have lived in the sea here. Saw a paper about Globidens which had some illustrations, then found out about Alabamaensis. Thought I had a jaw fragment minus teeth of one of those. Now I highly doubt it, but you are the people to ask! Who is it, JohnJ who has the quote about convincing yourself to believe anything?
One of my finds from yesterday. Found it on the surface in a creek bed here in W KY. (That is 99% of my finds!) Apologies for not knowing the geology & time frame. Not quite sure how to go about figuring that out yet. Could this be a sponge or coral? It's about 12 cm long, 9 wide at the widest, & heavy, probably 2 lbs. at least.
