  1. Over the past year, I've become fascinated with the often bizarre fish and sharks of the Pennsylvanian. Fortunately, my home state of Illinois is a great place to hunt for such fossils. I've shared several of these in other posts before, but wanted to put everything together in one thread. Probably won't have much to post for a few months after this, but once summer rolls around, I should hopefully have plenty of new finds to share. I would say there are three major settings in which you can find fish fossils in Illinois: Mazon Creek, black shales, and limestone. I have not had luc
  2. Our shark adaptation education program for elementary students follows up the Cladodonts with three of the craziest looking early sharks and three that we think kids will love learning about. The Eugeneodontid "sharks" may not be sharks but they are just too cool not to teach the kids about. Bizarre is interesting and I also love talking about evolutionary extremes. The best part of these next animals is that they each allow my son to really stretch out as an artist and create some weird looking creatures. The kids will learn that Edestus were large, predatory shark-like fish that

    Edestus Prep

    @DSMJake sent me this beautiful Edestus jaw to prep and I got the chance to work on it today. After a week of relaxing in the prep lab, chilling with the phytosaur, it came out of the box looking like this: To all appearances, it is simply covered in shale and the prep would require some simple abrasion. But as we all know, appearances aren’t everything! Under a good portion of the shale was a pile of pyritized shells! So, I abraided what I could and set to work with the Micro Jack. After the shells were gone, it went back into the cabinet for some more abrasive.

    Did I find a partial Edestus tooth ?

    I was given a jar of fossil shark teeth by a friend who knows I use them in education. These were collected on beaches in Florida but some of unknown origin seemed to be mixed in with the lemon, dusky, and sand tiger teeth. As I went through the teeth, one really jumped out as soon as I saw it. It did not look like the rest of teeth and it looked very similar to the Edestus tooth I have in my collection. I can not say for sure but I honestly can not think of anything else it is. In the pictures, the top tooth is my Edestus. The bottom is the partial that appears to be an edestus. A

    Edestus prep

    I picked up this jaw recently and would like to have it cleaned up. I’m fairly certain I’d ruin it if I tried anything myself. Anyone have recommendations for a prep guy/gal? Thanks!

    Edestus teeth

    From the album: Sharks and fish

    The shark relative is genus of eugenodontia holocephalid from the Carboniferous-Pennsylvanian age Anna shale formation, Carbondale group, found in different Illinois coal mines. I dont know(yet)which mine these were found in. This unidentified species is of the "vorax-serratus- crenulatus-heinrichi" or "E. heinrichi group", with the teeth being more of a standard triangular shape, as opposed to being thinner and pointed at a forward angle as in the "E. minor" group http://www.thefossilforum.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=50175

    Edestus "shark"

    Does anyone know much about the edestus? Ive always wondered about their teeth as they age. All sharks and fish(and animals), when they're young their teeth are also small. Edestus are supposed to never lose their teeth, like their buddy helicoprion(right?), and just have their jaws continue to extend out from their mouths over time. That being the case, how are the oldest teeth, from when they were little young things, full sized, or almost full sized, as they always are? The jaw bone starts off small at the tip, but quickly thickens, but the teeth start large. Also, does that mean that they

    Edestus sp.

    This is a sketch of Edestus, a 300 million year old shark from the Carboniferous. This is one of my favorite Carboniferous creatures, because it's a shark with scissor jaws! This was a fun project because remains of edestus are limited to jaws so I have the creative freedom to make the animal look any way I'd like. To make the skull I incorporated some goblin shark elements. I feel like a goblin shark with scissor jaws would be quite terrifying! I did however make some changes because I did not want the end result to end up looking just like a goblin shark. The eyes are inspired

    Edestus

    Been lucky enough to add a few edestus jaws in my collection recently
  10. I was looking for some advice on what to do with this edestus tooth. How can I tell if there are anymore teeth under the matrix? It looks like the enamel continues on for a bit further but I can’t tell how much further or if there are anymore teeth. I was wondering if there are any experts here that can tell just by looking at it. I want to leave the tooth and jaw in the matrix because I already have a jaw and tooth out of the matrix. Should I try to clean some matrix away from the tooth? if so how far? Or should I leave it as is because I know how fragile these are? thank
  11. Hello I am looking for an edestus jaw I have a saltasaurus osteoderm 5.75 inch megalodon tooth along with many more shark teeth and Floridian fossils such as a partial Columbian mammoth tooth etc.
  12. Hi, I was just wondering what was considered large for a single Edestus heinrichi tooth. I have recently bought one and it was around 1.6" wide. It was labeled as being big, but I just wanted another more experienced opinion on it. Thanks for your time.

    Show me your Fossil Collections!

    I am new to this forum, and I was pleasantly surprised with the friendly and immediate, helpful, educated responses I received when I asked for help ID-ing dromaeosur teeth! Thank you Troodon and Runner64 for your help! This seems like an active, educated forum where lovers of prehistoric life can gather to discuss fossils, and the like. So, I would like to show off my fossil collection, and discuss things about the small amount of material I have in my personal collection! Feel free to show me your collections as well, I would love to see them! So without further ado, on to my fossils!
