    Shelling Along the Chesapeake

    Inspired by trip reports by other members on the fossil shells of the Middle Miocene Choptank Formation, especially @I_gotta_rock's report from 2018, over the past several months I have made a couple trips to Matoaka Beach Cabins in Maryland to collect some of the incredible invertebrate material exposed along the cliffs and in that way draw the quizzical looks of other collectors there combing for shark teeth. It is a lot of fun to just park myself along the beach and break down pieces of talus with a screwdriver to uncover hundreds, if not thousands, of shells. Unfortunately the shells are i

    Palmoxylon

    This is a piece of late Miocene palm “wood” from Orinda, California. Not a true wood; it is part of the Palmoxylon form genus. Palm wood can rarely be attributed to a palm species identified by foliage or fruit such as Sabal. It was found in a landslide area on top of sedimentary interbeds of the Moraga Formation and the younger lacustrine Siesta Formation sediments. Volcanic rocks and possible spring deposits are nearby. Fossilized palm roots, reeds and petrified wood occur in the area. This piece and others found in the area represent the youngest palm fossils found in

    Rhino? From Indonesia. ID request

    hafa adai I recently purchased a flat of fossils from a guy I've been buying from in Indonesia (I know a guy... LOL). The ID card with this one said "rhinoceros", Miocene from Java, Indonesia. I have only ever seen rhino molars from there, which this is clearly not. Internet searches for rhino incisors however, yield teeth which are more tusk-like. I'm not really familiar with rhino dentition, so I thought I would appeal for assistance. Is it rhinoceras? thanks!

    Some New Zealand teeth, please help!

    Hi guys, I have come to you for help as I really don’t know what I’m talking about when it comes to New Zealand shark teeth (I’m fairly sure these are all selachian), anyway, I have separated them into what I think are the separate species based on my understanding of tooth morphology, sorry for lack of scale, for reference the teeth vary from around 2mm-5mm here is species 1 side view of the most complete one There appear to be very faint serrations more prevalent in one of them

    Herbivore Tooth

    Hi Everyone, I had a great outing at Flag Ponds Park yesterday. The day started with my first intact Meg about 20 minutes into my search. Then later on I found an herbivore tooth. Please help me ID the species. It measures approximately 2.6 cm x 2.7 cm. Thanks for your help.
  6. I hit the Potomac yesterday after a long hiatus for some Paleocene sharks teeth. I also decided to include a few of my finds from the recent Stratford hall trip, which was pretty decent. I always go to Douglas point for my Paleocene teeth because it’s just a good area and I almost always come back with a complete otodus. This time, that didn’t happen, though I did find a few broketodus teeth so meh. But I did come back with some good stuff, including a monster croc tooth, and a gigantic goblin sharks tooth. I also got a fish jaw with a lot of teeth in it and some other nice stuff, in addition
  7. In 2008, I found one of the prizes of my collection amongst a pile of sand and broken bits at Calvert Cliffs. I knew from seeing museum specimens of Isognomon maxillata that even with the tip broken off, this was a great find. After admiring it on my shelf every day since, I decided to share it. Today it has a new home at the Delaware Museum of Natural History, which did not have any of this species or much of anything from that region amongst its 2,000,000+ mollusk specimens. Along with the Isognomon, I donated a Chesapectin nefrens shell with a number of pearl buds on the inside and a Tongu
  8. Hey everyone! Going to STH somewhat soon, I plan on going to Ernst quarries(or if anyone has any other sites they’d recommend), and was wondering if there were any tips anyone could give me, since This will be my first time. Also, are there safety instructions they give you when you get there?

    Need help on this marine mammal tooth

    I've been collecting Oligocene and Miocene marine fossils in Summerville SC for decades, but I need help identifying this tooth. It came out of the same Chandler Bridge formation, that I've found museum quality Angustidens, Rics, Megs etc. Shark teeth as well as Squaladon teeth, 2 intact skulls, etc. so I'm familiar with most of the marine fossils from that area. However. I cant seem to nail this one down. I thought perhaps a juvenile Squaladon, but I don't think so. It doesn't have the 2 roots common on those. It is narrow. Any help would be appreciated. I'll pos
  10. Hello guys... the three dolls here come from a Miocene (Langhien) site in France. First identification was "Trivia Coccinella" (but I onestly haven't found it anywhere). Could they be Trivia Dimitiatoaffinis? I'm using this website for a help (http://www.nmr-pics.nl/).. it looks that Trivia (or Niveria) Dimitiatoaffinis could be the most plausible choice (considering period and location). I found an evenience also here (https://www.paleontica.org/id_system/fossil_id_search.php?zoek=47-0765): it looks quite similar... what do you think?:) thank you all G
  11. This was washed up by the sea, where shark teeth, pieces of bone, sperm whale teeth, whale inner ear bones and several other common vertebrate fossils can be seen. Location is South Africa, West Coast. Does anybody know the correct I.D. for this particular piece? I thought I had I.D.'d it but i'm not convinced any more. Thanking you in advance.

    a new Rapp beach

    Went at low tide to a small public beach on the Rappahannock. A few people laying on the sand soaking in the nice weather. One guy raking the sand, looking for shark teeth, fossils or maybe beach glass. I walked along in the water looking for teeth with faint hope, but was lucky! Although mostly just long rusted and tide- and sand- burnished metal bits, I did find some teeth including two NICE cowshark teeth (perfect compared to the broken rootless ones I'm lucky to find usually). Also found an interesting skate scute (small enameled spot in the center), a reddish sand tiger spike, a thre

    Stromatolites

    Two highly polished, end cut Stromatolite agate achats from the Mátra mountains, Gyöngyöstarján, Hungary from the Miocene, 20 million years ago that I recently purchased. These are the first Stromatolite fossils that I’ve added to my fossil collection. I’m posting a few pictures to show the incredible colors in these pieces. End Cut (1) ( 543grams 103mm by 102mm by 35mm) End Cut 2 (166grams 75mm by 45mm by 45mm)

    Fleming Formation / Oakville Sandstone?

    I have been looking for some Miocene sites for a while now and I have a few questions about some of them if ya'll don't mind. I've found some sites in the fleming and oakville formations near Navasota but i'm not sure how fossiliferous these formations are or if there are specific stratum that contain the majorities of the fossils in these formations. If anyone has any information and are willing to share I would be much obliged.
  15. Hello fellow fossil hunters. Below is a photo of the array of fossils I found. Each fossil is labelled with a number and it would be awesome if I could get each one identified. I thought ahead and took the photo on grid paper with each square being 5mm. Item 1 is just some quartz crystal I picked up, item 4 is a piece of some unidentifiable shell and the rest are legit fossils. I am a rooky and an amateur so please let me know if I get anything wrong or if I need to add any more detail. Location: Batesford Limestone quarry, Geelong, Victoria, Australia. Geology: Sometime betw
  16. Below is my third artificial tooth set for an extinct shark, this time for the Maryland Miocene tiger/tiger-like shark(s) Galeocerdo aduncus/Physogaleus contortus. This adds to the artificial tooth sets I previously constructed for Striatolamia striata and Hemipristis serra. For this tooth set, I’ve presented G. aduncus and P. contortus as the same species, with the former contributing the upper and the latter the lower teeth in the dentition. The possibility that these species are the same is further discussed in a recent topic started by @WhodamanHD here; I relied on Applegate’s
  17. Nice to be out before the mosquitoes, but the pollen is a pain. Worked a spot with lots of gravel. Expected drum teeth (found), angel shark teeth (two) and vertebrae (one and pieces). Except for cowshark teeth (no roots), nothing really special. But lots of small teeth (many broken).

    Which bone is this?

    North Florida Fun!

    My wife and I returned from a great trip to north Florida about a week and a half ago, but I finally have time to post a trip report now that our Easter visitors (our kids) have left and headed back to their homes. Fair warning, if you are looking for some great tale of finds on the Peace River, this is not the post for you! Probably one of the few posts on the Forum from a trip to Florida that does NOT include the Peace –. This was not solely a fossil trip, but rather a sight-seeing trip with some fossils stops included, I try to include as many stops as possible but it is always a delica
  20. Following up on the artificial tooth set I recently constructed for the Paleocene sand tiger shark Striatolamia striata, I decided to see if I could put one together for the Miocene snaggletooth, Hemipristis serra, using teeth I've collected along the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland. I haven't found a great resource for an H. serra dentition, but I consulted a few different sources to get a sense for the arrangement, including Fossilguy.com, J-elasmo (which has a dentition for the extant H. elongata), and various TFF threads. The resulting tooth set is below. While I've fou
  21. I've been scarce around the forum lately and equally scarce on the river this season. I just haven't had as much time as I would like, but the wife and I finally got out again yesterday for just the second time this season. Headed out to Gardner bright and early and hit got to the ramp about 9am. Hardly anyone was there - when you pull up and see only one vehicle besides your own, then it's going to be a quiet peaceful day on the river. The weather was (is) gorgeous. High around 80, low humidity, lots of sun, and a nice breeze. You cannot ask for better river weather. We got the k

    Tiny fossilized tooth

    Any ideas on who this belong to? I’m pretty sure this is fossilized but not 100%. Area is almost entirely Miocene.
  23. Found in Ram. Looks mammalian, possibly beaver? Throwing me off because it doesn't seem modern. Any thoughts?
  24. Hello all, I'm making my fourth trip to Venice in a few weeks and I was wondering if anyone knows of any good land sites in the area, or further inland to where one might find Bone Valley teeth. Would also enjoy the company if you have a secret spot that you don't want to disclose the location of. I'll be diving in Venice a few days and maybe a trip out to Peace River, but I've always wanted to find a good Florida land site.

    Cetacean Skull Fragment?

    Hi guys, I found this bone cluster on the shore of the Black Sea, near the city of Balchik, Bulgaria. From the region there have been findings of Miocene cetaceans, seals and some ground megafauna. The more circular bone somewhat reminds me of an ear bone but comparing it with pictures of fossil dolphin ear bones I can't say if it really is one. So my question is if it is an ear bone and if it is, does that mean that´s a part of a skull? Any help on the identification of the fossil will be very much appreciated! Best regards!
