    Greens Mill Run

    Hi all, it's been a long time since I posted here. I'm thinking about going to Greens Mill Run (Greenville, NC) next weekend. Would the water levels be about right or might it not be a good idea?
  2. Hey everyone, I'll be in Wilmington, North Carolina for a wedding next week and I'm super excited to check out GMR for the first time. I expect the water will be frigid, to say the least. Does anyone in the area know how high the water level is now? I know a guy who may have hip waders or boots I could borrow, but it would be a huge bummer if we got there and I found out the water level was too high for either of those. They're too bulky to pack in carry-on luggage, so bringing my own pair isn't an option. On that note, if anyone knows of a place nearby (Greenville or Wilmington) w

    Need Help to Identify

    Hello. I came across this fossil recently while at GMR in Greenville, North Carolina. I was hoping someone would be able to tell me what it came from & what part. My friend I went with thought it was some sort of jawbone piece. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Hi again. I have another one for you. I think I could tell if it wasn't broken! Found in green mill run. It is 1.5 inches or 3.8 cm. There is a definite ridge on one side. I tried to get a good picture of its location, the cavity seems slightly oval. Thank you again! I really appreciate you all teaching and helping me!
  5. Had a pretty productive afternoon on Sunday. No large teeth but tons of small ones and lots of bone. One partial shark vert! Some...seeds? That I'm not sure on. Along with one other thing that I'm not sure on.

    Whale Petrosal Confirmation, please?

    Another find this weekend, actually Rick found it but let me bring it home, want to confirm that it's a petrosal and also what species based on my research I believe it to be. Found: Greensmill Run, Greenville NC among a huge array of items (whale bone including several tempanic bulla, shark teeth (great white, tiger,crow, Giant White Shark etc) and two Enchodus teeth etc. Believed to be a Petrosal from Balaenoptera Sursiplana? I thought (from one specific article/image reference below) that is was possibly Plesiobalaenoptera but it noted they are only found in Italy

    Green Mill Run

    Hi all. I found this in green mill run in Greenville NC. I don't know what it is but since it has the same enamel look of a tooth I kept it. I hope there is enough of it there for someone to have an idea of what it is! In inches it is about 1.25 and centimeters 3.175. Thank you very much!!

    Tooth? Found in Green Mill Run

    Hi all. I am sure this is an easy one for you but I would like to be sure, since my guess is only a guess! I apologize that the only measuring tape I had was in inches, but i believe it is just under 35 mm. Found in the green mill run. Near the tar river in Greenville NC USA Thank you!
  9. Good evening everyone, I recently did some fossil hunting in the Green Mill Run river in Greenville, NC. The water was pretty low - ankle/shin deep most of the time. I'm pretty new to fossil identification so figured you guys could help me out. Location: Green Mill Run, NC Date: July 2020 Excavation process: Shovel to river bed The first looks like a jaw with teeth indentations. It's about 1.9" (50mm) with brownish coloration. Additional photos below.
  10. Found this tooth today. It is the best fossil I have ever found!! I am ecstatic about it. I found it just laying under a pipe in GMR in Greenville, NC. Approaching 3"

    GMR find

    Found this at GMR and have no clue what if anything it is. Seems like more than just a stone but maybe that’s it. Anyone have any guesses?

    Bone, Tooth ???

    Curious to find ID for this piece found this month in Green Mill Run creek
  13. So I took a trip to GMR in Greenville, NC. Green springs park is currently closed and by the looks of it, i guess for a while. The entire creek took a beating with down trees that lay across the creek in many places. South of green springs park is still very deep, maybe 6 or 7 feet. I did manage to find access about 1/4 of a mile north of the park. This area was anywhere from ankle high to thigh deep, and I'm 6'3". I stumbled onto some pretty awesome finds as well as whale bone central, bulla's, baby intact meg teeth. For regular visitors of the creek, its going to look alot different. And fro
  14. Hey all I was able to go out to Greenville, NC for a quick hunt this fine morning. Heres the haul Everything 2 exogyra and a oyster? That exogyra is absolutley MASSIVE some non-shark teeth Huge and reaaaallly old sperm whale tooth root. First whale tooth fish tilly bone Fish tooth. Could someone ID? Mosasaur tooth. My first mosasaur tooth too Belemnites Shark teeth Some good o
  15. First time at GMR, didn't find the whale tooth or vertebrae that I wanted to find, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! Was away from my vehicle for four hours. Was not prepared for all of the glass though! Curious if anyone can identify anything in the last two pictures. The small piece isn't supposed to be in that. I'm not sure if the black thing is anything, I just thought it had an unusual pattern.
  16. Hey, all I went to GMR in Greenville yesterday. First I'll tell you yesterday was a perfect day for fossil hunting, there were lots of people there. (15+) I know I have seen at least one trip report from yesterday, so I'll keep this short and let the pictures talk. When you look at the haul, it doesn't look great, but when you consider that I only dug for 45 minutes it's pretty great. I got 2 megs, 2 great whites, 5 crows, and some others. VERY nice HUGE lower great white. I got another really nice posterior great white. The bigger one is 2.5 inches, the smaller one I didn't measure, but it's
  17. [WARNING: A lengthy read, but hopefully enjoyable] Last summer Chuck @megaholic invited me to go out with his fossil friends to dive the Meg Ledges offshore from Carolina Beach, NC. We could not make it that year as we were several time zones and about 2700 miles to the west in Cascade, ID to see the total solar eclipse as it streaked across the US on August 21, 2017. (It was well worth the cost and effort to see this impressive astronomical event. This year Chuck tried again and I was happy to be able to take him up on his offer to join his group for some meg tooth dives.
  18. My wife and I headed down to Greenville this past weekend to hunt greens mill run. We had a fairly slow weekend of hunting. But we were able to find a nice great white, a couple makos, and some very nice crow shark teeth. All in all the hunting was a success, we just enjoyed being back in the creek. Now let me get into why this was the best trip we’ve ever had, by far! Forum member, George Powell, invited us to his home which he has built a 1500 sq. ft addition onto, to display his amazing collection. We arrived at about 3:30, and started the tour of us collection. George took the time t

    Tooth Identification

    Hello. Not too long ago I went to Green Mill Run (Greenville, NC) and found this tooth. Now I found my regular shark teeth, and even alligator teeth, but never did I find one of these (pictured). I was hoping someone could identify. It is 1.5" long.Thanks!

    Pearly Whites for Great Whites!

    I had a good weekend on the river this past Saturday and Sunday. I did some fishing and scouting for new dig spots. I have yet to find my own place where 1. no one else knows/digs that I am networked with 2. that produces decent quality and OK quantity. Saturday evening that was checked off from my fossil hunting bucket list, though. I plugged down the river in my lil 14' jon boat, saw some shells atop a bank that looked familiar to the fossil pecten in edgecomb county and made a quick dash to the shore! I had quite the struggle among the brush and trees between myself and these barely visible

    Green Mill Run (Day 1)

    Good evening all. We headed out for Greenville, NC to hunt Green Mill Run this morning. Headed out from NJ (across river from Philadelphia). We stopped off at Conowingo Dam in northern MD to take a few photo. My daughter with her driving permit in hand did a great job driving through Baltimore and D.C. (Proud dad moment!). We bypassed the hotel and jumped right into the creek just before 7pm knowing we were only going to get about an hour to scope out the area. I had only been in the creek once before about two years ago with George Powell. It was a short but awesome day in the water.

    Eastern NC - Bison Tooth ID Assistance

    I found this in a gravel bed at Greens Mill Run (GMR) Yesterday afternoon. I am thinking it's Bison, but would like confirmation and also assistance with which species and possible age. It's fossilized (tinks like a rock when tapped on a metal shovel) so I want to assume it's not modern but I suppose I cannot rule out the possibility of it being colonial? the range/mix of material at GMR might make this difficult - as I found it with shark teeth and whale bone much like everything else - even horse teeth.
  23. Sunday, 12/18/2016, will be a day documented with great detail in my personal memory bank. As you read this, keep in mind, I am one of those people who remain in constant awe of the world around me; curiously exploring every little detail, often finding excitement in the things most would consider average or common. Every Trip I’ve made to Greens Mill Run these past three years has been one of such joy, excitement and inspiration – regardless of what treasures (and junk) I had found or imagined to find. 12/18/16 9:15 AM – I arrive to my usual parking spot, which I frequent most weekends a
  24. Weekend find, date may have been 18th not the 19th, working to verify with dig partner. Found: Greens Mill Run, Greenville NC among a huge array of items (whale bone including several tempanic bulla, shark teeth (great white, tiger,crow, Giant White Shark etc) and two Enchodus teeth etc. Partner I was digging with found it (we were digging same location/hole together) in his screen and let me keep it.
