    Shark teeth ID, Texas

    I found about 20 shark teeth in a creek in North Texas, and I’m having some trouble IDing the teeth in the attached photo. They are about 1” in length. Mako or maybe a White Shark? Any help is greatly appreciated.
  3. Wanted to share my finds from a quick shark teeth hunting trip in Florida. Found a very nice Mako, definitely the coolest tooth I've found yet.

    Hi. It’s been over a year since I have been out hunting. I finally was able to get in a couple hunts in last week. I found the usual teeth and other fossils. It just felt so good to finally get back at it! Wanted to post some of the nicer items I found. Enjoy: 1 and 2. Scapanorhynchus texanus - Goblin shark 3 and 4. Cretolamna - Mackeral shark 5. Coprolite? I am so hoping I am right about this because it will be a first for me! @frankh8147 @The Jersey Devil 6. Bone - probably modern but
  5. Hey there. First post so i hope i do this right and answer what's needed. My husband and i just returned from garden city/murrells inlet south carolina. We started our addiction for looking for teeth on the last beach trip and found a good amount of small teeth (smallest was actually 3mm long. No idea how i found it) but being new we have a bit of difficulty identifying some of our teeth. Could someone help identify these 2? My ring is for size reference. we found both the first day we arrived…late afternoon and in sand with a few shells but not shell bed and no digging/sifting (or

    Shark teeth

    From the album: Devonian

    Most teeth are fragmentary, with the Phoebodus-type teeth being the most common.

    Otodus obliquus is an ancient predecessor to the megalodon shark. Otodus obliquus lived from the Paleocene to the Eocene time period, roughly 40 to 60 million years ago. Real Otodus teeth in a mix that is à try to look like in the field matrix

    Calvert County Fossils

    Hi everyone! I went to Flagponds in Calvert County MD a few weeks ago and came back with my biggest *actual* fossil haul so far (I posted here my first time with about 50 barnacle pieces)! I know there are a few ray plate fragments in here, and I've included what I think are bone pieces although I'm not entirely sure. Anyway, I'm having a lot of trouble identifying my shark's teeth, so any help with this would be greatly appreciated! I'll post numbered photos of my finds with this. If anyone needs a zoomed in, clearer or different angle pic I'm happy to provide more. (Advance apologies for the
  10. I'm visiting DeLand for a week and a half, and really want to find a spot to search for fossils or shark teeth, haven't found many online and I know people have their own secret spots. Pm me locations if you don't want to share them publicly guys, I am only hand searching with a few family members. I am willing to drive a couple hours to spend a day hunting fossils

    Maryland Eocene shark teeth

    The two shark teeth below are recent personal finds from the Nanjemoy Formation (early Eocene) in Maryland. I'd appreciate any help in ID'ing them. #1: Jaekelotodus robustus? I've been calling this one Jaekelotodus robustus and am curious if that's correct. This tooth measures 27 mm on the slant. #2: Brachycarcharias lerichei? This second tooth has me stumped. I'm leaning toward Brachycarcharias lerichei, but would not be surprised to find out it's s

    Texas Cretaceous shark teeth

    I have here two shark teeth from the Cretaceous of Texas that I'm hoping to ID. #1: Dwardius ?woodwardi? The first tooth below is from Dallas, TX, from a buffer zone between the Eagle Ford and Woodbine formations (i.e., late Cretaceous, ~90-96 mya). I previously posted this tooth in the mailbox score thread and the @ThePhysicist tentatively IDed it as Dwardius (woodwardi?) but recommended posting it in the ID forum. I'm finally getting around to doing that! This tooth measures 25 mm on the slant.

    Fossil or rock?

    Found on Nokomis Beach, FL. Can you help us end our family feud? Awesome old shark teeth...or rocks...or something else? Thanks:)

    Sharktooth Hill - Public Sites

    Hi everyone, I'll be in Bakersfield for a day in early September. I wanted to go out to Sharktooth Hill with Ernst, but their availability is up in the air. In case that falls through, I'd like to have another plan. I'm looking for a public collection site. It doesn't have to be amazing or really productive; just looking to have some fun and take a shark tooth home. All I ask is that it's legal to collect there. I'd appreciate any help with this, thank you in advance.

    Shark tooth arrowhead? Or just broken?

    Hey all, I've been on the fence about this tooth. It was a beach find (Venice, FL), so I think it is a little damaged and tumbled. Could the root be notched on one side? (The other side looks broken off.) Is the center boring potentially natural? Many thanks!
  16. I am back from my trip/vacation/holiday/whatever-you-call-it. I went to Hilton Head Island South Carolina USA and was unsure how the shark tooth hunting was gonna go. Turned out much more successful then I thought although the largest tooth is only 12mm about half an inch. It’s a lot harder to ID these than I thought. I tried grouping them but am pretty sure I made some mistakes. I could use some help to figure these out. And I know many are too worn to ID. Couldn’t find a complete ruler so I just cut out a 1 cm by 1 inch piece of paper for scale. Let me know if more pictures are needed or if

    Into the Eocene

    Most of my Maryland fossil hunts are at well-known Paleocene and Miocene spots. A few weeks ago, I got an itch to try something new and after studying a state geologic map and aerial photos, I found a potentially promising Maryland exposure of the less accessible Nanjemoy Formation (Eocene). It's an out-of-the-way spot and a lengthy trek along a river from the nearest public access point. As I discovered, it’s also kind of a brutal hike due to the number of downed trees and other vegetation lining the banks, forcing you to mostly travel through murky knee deep and hig

    Another Potomac trip

    Not too bad a day. Sifting for small teeth. Got my third nurse shark tooth today.
  19. Searcher78


    Water was high today, but just like this tree, I didn’t give up. Not as many teeth as I usually get. I get distracted. My first tooth of this type.
  20. Sharktooth Hill Trip Report Part 1 – building the sifting table Hi everyone, After my first trip to Sharktooth Hill in June, I was hooked. I immediately started making plans to return and, this time I’d come better prepared. This forum has provided an amazing source of ideas and helpful people and inspired me to build a sifting table for my next trip to STH. A huge thanks to those who have helped me by answering questions, providing pictures and ideas, and helping me troubleshoot. I gathered as much info as I could and then tried to combine all the best ideas into
  21. Hello, everyone! I am in search of Jurassic shark teeth. Primary species I am looking for is Agaleus dorsetensis, an Early Jurassic Galeomorph shark that has been found in Europe, most commonly at Lyme Regis, UK. I prefer teeth with no matrix, no repairs or restoration. Other Jurassic taxa I am looking for include: Palaeocarcharias stromeri Crassodontidanus Notidanoides Phorcynis catulina Palaeoscyllium formosum Corysodon cirinensis I can offer fossil shark teeth of different rarities, depending on which teeth of these you c
  22. After my fourth trip to the peace river here is my collection of my favorites. No close ups of any single teeth, but I’ve included a shot of four of my favorites. While I love the mammal teeth, my favorites are still shark teeth. It does amaze me the number of Meg pieces you can find. Its just a matter of time before a real nice one comes up in the sifter. That said, I never thought I’d find just piece of one, so overjoyed with what the river gave back. Not shown are the 700 plus other teeth that didn’t make the display.
  23. Hi everyone, today I arrived a small batch of shark teeth which came from the Egem Clay, Tielt Formation, Egem, Belgium that date back to the Ypresian, Eocene (53 mya). I attempted to ID them but as usual I would like to see what your imput is on my ID's. Tooth 1: Striatolamia macrota or maybe even Cretalamna sp. Tooth 2: Brachycarcharias lerichei? Tooth 3: Striatolamia macrota Tooth 4: Striatolamia macrota Tooth 5: Hypotodus verticalis or Striatolamia macrota
  24. Hi everyone! I went to Post Oak Creek, Texas a few weeks ago and got a decent haul. Including three teeth that I think are from some rare species that I wanted to confirm my id on. I think the first two are Cretoxyrhina mantelii and the third is Protolamna. I'm particularly unsure with the second one since it seems to have a slight nutrient groove. The first one also has damage where there would have been cusps so I'm not sure if it's a different Cretoxyrhina species or a different genus entirely. I'm fairly certain the creek is Atco formation. I know it's either
