It's not often I find vertebrate remains in Missouri, or get to post in here twice a month. I feel its worth sharing though, as I've only ever found 3 teeth (two of them being today!) in the Burlington Limestone. The other day I posted in the ID section and luckily what I thought was a piece of a bryzoan encrusted brachiopod, another fossil forum member ID'd correctly as an ancient fish tooth. This got me very excited, so when I got off my overnight shift today, I went out all day to hit my favorite spot of Burlington Limestone. Of course I found nice crinoids for preparation, but 2 teeth are definitely more exciting to find in the Mississippian limestone than a crinoid!

 

Found and cleaned: 7/30/20

Species: Deltodus sp. Fish tooth

Geologic age: Burlington Formation (Mississippian)

Locality: Henry County, Missouri

 

Maybe someone with literature or who is good with teeth, unlike I, could maybe determine the actual species? Doubtful, but I have a list of candidates. The species considered valid are-  D. fasciataus, D. grandis, D. occidentalis, D. ornatus, D. spatulatus, D. undulatus, and D. inornatus.

Nice finds!

Date of Discovery : 7/31/2020

Scientific name : Plesiosaur tooth with partial root

AGE : Late Cretaceous

Location: Monmouth County, New Jersey, USA

 

For fossil of the month, I want to enter my rooted Plesiosaur tooth, which measures just under two-inches long.

 

I was heading back after a pretty unproductive trip this morning and saw this in the stream. I instantly got excited thinking it was probably a Xiphactinus tooth but when i picked it up, I got REALLY excited! It's not only my first rooted Plesiosaur tooth but also the biggest Plesiosaur tooth I have found to date. Needless to say, I'm still pretty excited!

That is absolutely amazing!!!!  Incredible find!!
