Recommended Posts

Here are some others recent finds from the  Begian Antwerp area. Since I can’t make a gallery yet I’m going to show of some pictures over here ;) I really love the colours on these...

Beautiful teeth. Thank you for sharing them. Are any of the teeth that look like C. hastalis finely serrated?

@sixgill pete No none of the teeth on these pictures have serrations, I found 3 escheri’s at this location but they are all missing the root :(

Congratulations. I think you already have sufficient material to create an excellent gallery. It's striking how similar they appear to Chesapeake Bay Miocene finds. You should come here and see.

@Jeffrey P I’m quite sure I have sufficient material but as a new member you can only open a gallery after you have posted a sufficient amount of post or our your community reputation is high enough. So I’m still working on that ;) I hope to be able to hunt abroad in the future and travel various foreign fossil hunting spots. For now however I’m stuck hunting Belgium and the near proximity..,

I wouldn't say you are "stuck" having to dig your area like it's a bad thing.  Many members would give their left arm ( provided that isn't their digging arm) to have have a location like you have available to them.  Very nice pieces!

@Manticocerasman I’m a member of the GVL (Geologische vereniging Limburg), NVG (Nederlandse Geologische Vereniging) and the WTKG. When I go hunting in Antwerp I mostly go out on my own or with a small group of friends. It’s quite an exceptional hunting area, it’s only on rare occasions clubs organise trips there.

I'm in the mannagement of the BVP ( Belgische vereniging voor Paleontologie ) , also member of Lithos and HONA.

I'm more of a paleozoic collector, but my girlfriend is a sharktooth collector ( mainly Eoceen ) but last trip was to the Rumst Quarry. not a lot of niece quality teeth, but we got a few decent Hastalis.

I’m visiting Rumst this weekend, still hope to find a last minute meg tooth this year ;). I never had the opportunity to hunt for eocene shark teeth, I only started to focus on shark teeth at the end of 2015 so most quarries were closed by then (to my knowing). Have been able to buy some residu and a small collection of Egem teeth however.
