    Good Way To End The Weekend!

    So yesterday i posted on my trek into the grayson. Today i made a trip to west dallas to a new creek site i found on my maps that should be eagle ford and im thinking it contained the basal atco fish conglomerate , but im not sure and am still learning. Everyones knowledge would be appreciated. So this will be a multi post/pic topic so bear with me. First everyones favorite.... Site pics....
  2. Hi, I am new to the fossil world and have just recently acquired a tooth. I recently purchased a tooth from a shop in a small town in California. The shopkeeper said it was a Tyrannosaurus rex tooth, but I immediately had doubts on the accuracy of the identification. Firstly, she kept saying that her boss acquired most of the fossils in Morocco. I went home and researched and this made me think maybe it's a Carcharodontosaurus tooth. Secondly, the price didn't reflect that of a real Tyrannosaurus rex tooth of this size (3" roughly). I emailed the owner of the shop and he called today and s

    Shell-Crushing Shark Tooth?

    I sat on a rocky shoal under the shade of a tree to eat my lunch while on a creek walk today. The ham sandwich didn't really have a chance against me. As it happens, I sat right next to this specimen. Found in Travis Co., TX. Is this Ptychodus? Might it be P. mortoni? The root is missing altogether. You can see a view of the sulcus in the 2nd and 3rd photos, and the underside in the 5th photo. Let me know what you think, and thanks for looking.
  4. Hello - Would appreciate any help in identifying this item. I was recently on vacation (last week) in St. Coix USVI and on a untouched rocky beach found this at the waters edge. Locaion Here Shape makes me think it is possibly a tooth... but due to location I am not sure what it could be (possibly a Whale?) and or if it is just a piece of coral from local reefs. Please let me know if any more information/ pictures would be helpful. Thank you in advance for your help.

    Large Tooth Need Help With Id

    Found what looks like a large tooth washed up on the beach last week in Wilmington NC. I need help trying to identify it. Attached is a picture with a dime used for scale.

    Fish Or Reptilian Tooth?

    Hi to everybody, Yesterday I found this tooth in Pliocene fluviodeltaic sediments here in Spain. Could it be a reptilian tooth or it's a fish tooth? Thanks!

    Marine Fish Tooth?

    Hi all. I found this tooth in Late Cretaceous (Turonian) marine shale. It is quite different than any of the shark teeth I have found in the area. Could it possibly be a fish? Any ideas would be appreciated.
  8. The creek was good to me yesterday. On a rocky shoal at a bend in a creek in Austin (Travis Co. TX), I found not only my first shark tooth, but a nice creek-worn dart point with a broken tip. The gravel also gave up the big tooth pictured below, which I guess to be either Equus or Bos/Bison. The shark tooth is presumably from the Cretaceous marine layers that the creek cuts into. A friend has found shark teeth in the matrix nearby, but this one was in the wash atop a sand bar. If more/better pictures would help identify it, just let me know. Super excited to have found it. For the flint to

    What Kind Of Tooth?!

    I am visiting my parents on the gulf coast & decided to go to the beach to find some shark teeth. The nearby beach is famous for shark teeth, Manisota Beach, & we found over 100 in just a couple hours. However we also found the below tooth & I was wondering what it is from. It is over 1/2" long & about 3/8" in diameter. Any ideas what this could be?

    River Finds From February

    Here are a few of the fossils I found in February. The meg measures about 5 3/4" and weighs a little over a pound while the ray plate almost 4" across the widest point. I was working my way up the river in a crazy rocky place and all of a sudden in the open was this tooth. The serration are pretty good considering the beat up display side of the tooth. I suspect that though the meg may not have rolled or moved much, a bunch of rocks have moved over it before I got there. And then there are some colorful makos. The bottom right mako is almost shaped like a planus, though I would guess it

    Large Tooth Id?

    Hello, this fossil was given to me and I was wondering if anyone would know what it might be. It is approximately 4" in length and I am assuming it is a tooth of some kind. Unfortunately I am not sure of its origins. Also, is there a way to determine if it is real or a reproduction? Thank you in advance! -Circuit
  12. This is my first official Triassic fossil - a tooth (or fish fin) and some associated (poor quality) tissue/bone pieces found in a late afternoon exploration of some rocky outcroppings in Montgomery County, PA. Both halves of the impression are included. The impression/cast are very faint and some of the definition is in jeopardy of being lost since the material powdered and flaked off a bit as it dried, and is less defined now than when I first brought it home and took the first images. Here are some views of the full shale piece and surrounding smooth area with a small skin or tissue

    Bovine Jaw

    This section of jaw was found a few months ago in the cut bank of a creek in Austin, TX, nearly 15 feet below the top of the soil. I spent an hour removing the jaw from the overburden, and thought I got everything that was there. A recent return to the spot proved me wrong - much of the remainder of the skull is now visible, though I was unable to collect it at the time. If it's a modern bovine jaw, I will let the creek have it. But if it's something more interesting, it may be time to put the waders back on. Only the depth of the soil above it made me think it could be old. What do you thi

    Colorful Tapir Jaw

    Sometimes when a fossil is found one side is exposed while there is still more buried beneath the sand, gravel, or clay. This can create very contrasting colors like those seen on this tapir mandible. The left jaw was exposed to the dark tannic water, while the right jaw was still buried in the blue clay. This specimen was found in North Florida.

    Hunting The River Banks

    I am a novice fossil hunter but a true addict just the same. I have hunted on and off for years and my finds range from 10 teeth on a trip to 350. Over the last two weekends I went out three times and found a good haul each time. I also posted some displays I have recently created. About four more to go before I can figure out where the heck I'll hang them.

    Not A Crocodile Tooth ?

    From time to time I find crocodile teath in a Virginia river. They are all different sizes and shapes but have never been pointed. I have never seen one like this and took the first picture with two croc teeth, one on each side. The pointed one is also thinner, lighter and feels different. Does anyone know what this may be?

    Unknown Fossil Tooth

    Hello all! First of all, Thank You for your time and expertise in advance. Second, I have purchased this fossil tooth and have no idea what it is from. I'm thinking a shark of course, but what kind has me stumped. Ideas?

    Tooth, Claw Or Spur?

    I'm new to the forum and to fossil hunting, and this is my first time posting for ID. I found a fossil that is interesting, but I can't identify. It was found in the Peace River around Gardner, Hardee County FL. I have looked online and have seen fossils that look a little bit like it, but nothing really quite looks like it. I am familiar with the common teeth found in the Peace River. I tried to get good close up photos that show the details, but the color is a bit washed out. The bottom section is gray with a white bulb on top. It is curved like a tooth or claw. It is a smooth texture o

    I Think It Is A Tooth.. But Of What?

    OK, so we were out on the Missouri river this past weekend (east of Kansas City, MO) looking for bison bone on the sand bars (the MO is very low right now). I have found bison/bovine teeth (both whole and fragments) in the past, but this looks very different... It looks more like a broken carnivore tooth? If it is a tooth? Any guesses? Thanks in advance.... Joe

    Florida Fossil Fragment

    Newbie here. This is a little fossil I picked up on a beach in Southern Florida. When I first saw it on the ground I thought I had found a mammoth tooth fragment, but I'm guessing it's probably just some sort of shell. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

    Mammal Tooth? And Unknown

    These fossils were given to me so I have no clue where they are from. It would be interesting to know what they are/what animal they came from. The tooth is a little over two inches in length. I have absolutely no idea what the second fossil is. Any help is appreciated and thank you to those who attempt to identify them. Pictures: Tooth Unknown
