  1. I am in nj and have heard of some good spots for micro fossils around here but I don’t know how to go about searching. Do you guys look though material in the field or take it home? Thanks, Noel
  2. I have been reading up on Moroccan mosasaurs and one point of confusion that I have run into is differentiating teeth from Prognathodon anceps and Prognathodon giganteus. There seems to be a great deal of overlap in their descriptions and occasional contradictions in the scientific literature. The first issue I’ve noticed is that there seems to be a great deal of confusion over what to even call the two species. Leiodon anceps (Owen, 1841-1845) was based on two tooth fragments and a section of jawbone. The genus was renamed Liodon by Agassiz (1846) because the

    Rodent jaw

    I found this mandible (I think) near Bloomington, Indiana over the weekend and was wondering if anyone could give me an ID on it. I believe it's the mandible of a rodent, but that's about as far as I get. Seems to large for a mouse or rat, but maybe a muskrat, shrew (if those are bigger?), or squirrel? And I'm guessing it's more recent rather than fossil?

    Help Identifying Jaw and Teeth

    Hi, As a return to the fossil forum after years without using this account, I come with another fossil that I cannot identify. It is a small jaw with teeth, which appears to be in amazing condition, that was purchased in a small rock collection in New Jersey. I have no idea of its origins. The teeth appear to be somewhat sharp, and the jaw starts a broken point and ends at a curved part that would presumably end in the center portion of the animal's jaw. From the break, you can see that the fossil is almost entirely empty. Any information is appreciated, Aiden

    Help with teeth ID, any bison?

    My collection of teeth I have tried to ID and want to see if I got any of them right, all came from creek that is QAL. First group I think is bovid, maybe little one on end deer? Next 2 teeth I'm not sure about, last group thinking might be bison. Wasn't sure if pictures of root end are needed.
  6. shark teeth, left corner is a couple of ptychodus teeth, a black, tiny gastropod. I think on the right are just brown concretions. Below is a large view of bivales. Gryphea at top left a clump of gryphea top right. There's an ammonite tucked in there on the bottom right. At the top gryphea. Others are various bivalves. A black gastropod toward the middle. The brown peanut thing is a concretion.
  7. Hi everyone, I recently bought this tooth on a whim. It was described as Diplocynodon sp. from the Kimmeridge Clay and reworked into the Albian-age Faringdon Sponge Gravels at the Wicklesham Pit. However, this description is obviously wrong in either species attribution or locality, since Diplocynodon is an alligatoroid genus dating to the Paleocene to middle Miocene, and could therefore not possibly have been found in the Sponge Gravels as Wicklesham Pit. Going by the label that came with the tooth, however, the seller whom I bought the

    One for the (marine) crocodile specialist...

    Hi everyone, Recently, while researching the morphology of machimosaurid crocodile teeth, I bumped into the below specimen, identified as Machimosaurus hugii (presumably based on its size). And although I can't confirm the specific name, I'm confident the referral to Machimosaurus is correct. When taking a closer look at the tooth's striations, however, I noticed not all of them actually run the whole apicobasal length of the tooth as I expected. And although some striations have undoubtedly been terminated and/or interrupted by wear, I was more genetically

    My Collection

    Hi everyone on Fossil Forum, I am pretty new to fossil collection but I have decided to post what I have currently collected and will continue to update this page with new fossils that I acquire over time. I am now looking to acquire rarer teeth now! Details of Specimen: Triceratops Tooth Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana Late Cretaceous Period (65 Million Years Old) Measurements: 1.5 inches long x 3/4 inch wide x5/8 inch thick Weight: 8.9 Grams No restoration at all. all natural specimen. I love the way this looks and its huge!

    Bones in TX

    Found some bones sticking out of the creek bank in Central TX. Area has confirmed Mastodon remains. Tusks and a tooth all found within 1/4 mile of this site. Bones are 12 feet below the top of the bank. I did a little digging around today to get a feel for what it could be. It appears it could be a large pelvis bone (4-5 feet wide). I also found a small bone that appears to be from the foot/toes etc. Not really sure how I should proceed. Is there any educational value in this type of bones? Who would one contact to ask? I am sure Mastodon bones are fairly common.

    Burlington Formation Fish Teeth

    Late last year @minnbuckeye was kind enough to send me a test tube full of fragments of teeth he collected from an exposure of the Mississippian Burlington Formation in Iowa. As part of the deal, he asked that I post photos of my better finds from the tube. These are the first Mississippian fish teeth in my collection. I am really happy with what Mike was willing to share with me and I cannot thank him enough. I also owe a big thank you to @Elasmohunter for helping me identify the finds. If you haven't seen it already, check out Mike's trip report from his hunt of the Iowa Burlingt

    Oligocene Dolphin

    I just finished up preparation on this amazing Oligocene dolphin. It is from the Ashley formation and is a real beauty. I made the decision not to completely remove it from the matrix, as I believe it is more aesthetic this way.. It was missing the last 3 inches of the pre-maxilla so that had to be restored but we did find a few other teeth in the matrix.

    Orectolobid tooth?

    Hello! Help please identify tooth. Is it some genus of Orectolobifores? Length - 4 mm. Age - Eocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  15. These are all found in what I believe is the scollard formation at roughly the same elevation. The black one is what appears the least "Rex-like" to me. @Troodon

    Shark tooth id

    Hello! Help please with identification. Height - 2 mm. Age - Eocene. Location - Western Ukraine. Thanks in advance!
  17. Hello there! I buy a beautiful megalodon tooth few years ago. Because I am curious I find that it is slightly radioactive ( 0.4µS/hours). I store it in a small showcase with other fossils. I read that fossilized shark teeth are made of apatite that can contain uranium and thorium. IF my tooth contain uranium, is there a risk of radon gaz accumulation in my showcase????? Thank you in advance Nicolas
  18. I've been looking around for a fossilized great white shark tooth for some time now and it seems like there just aren't many to choose from. The price also seems crazy for them. Are they more desirable than other fossilized shark teeth? It seems like I can get a small Meg for the cost of a Great White. My aunt has been wanting one, but I'm more confused on the price and availability of them. Are they more rare than Megs? Or are they just more desired? I don't want to get a modern one because of the way sharks are hunted. Does anyone know of why the prices and availability are they way they are

    Mississippi creek jaw

    Found in a NE Mississippi creek. I’m usually in Montana, so have no clue what this could be. Seems a bit older than modern, but obviously not crazy old. Thoughts?
  20. Hello gang. I am looking for advice from more experienced folks about sifting for fossils. I have a wide range of appropriate tools available to me, but as one that has never really done this sort of fossil hunting, I have some questions before my excursion this weekend. I always have a canvas bag/tube type I normally use for forest floor detritus to find various insects and the like. It has also proven useful in streams and creeks. Very handy as it folds flat and doesn't use up much pack space. However it is in the sieve range of #3-4 (about 5mm +/-). I don

    Teeth Found in Big Brook, NJ

    Jawbone Found Need Help to identify

    Found this Jawbone but don't know what Animal it's from it's 11" inches long. Would Appreciate if it can be identified. Thanks in advance
  24. Hi all Some of you may remember that I used to (and still do) research on fossils from the Late Cretaceous chalk of Denmark... Now there are 2 main chalk sites in Denmark, Møns Klint and Stevns Klint. My work focuses on the stuff from Møns Klint, but in all honesty there's some spectacular fossils coming out of both localities. One thing that both Møns and Stevns have in common is that fossils of mosasaurs (giant lizard-like marine reptiles) are extremely rare, with only a small handful of specimens found every year. A few years ago, I went to the Geomuseum Faxe (south of Copenhage

    Shark Teeth Serrations

    Now don't laugh at me too much for my question!! I just stumbled onto a post asking for an ID of what they thought was a lemon shark and it brought up a question I have had for a long time: 10 hours ago, hemipristis said: I usually only go with lower Carcharhinus when I see serrations on the blade, but maybe they are worn off. Also I can’t see it under a microscope. I have the chance to collect shark's teeth once a year and consider myself an absolute novice at ID. My question to the forum is how do you tell if a tooth is
