    Need help ID multiple Items

    Hi guys! I’m new to this, but my wife and I have been shark tooth hunting for the past month thanks to “quarantine”. We have found some interesting things, but can’t seem to pin point what they are exactly. We believe some may be megalodon teeth, great white teeth, and a dugong bone. All were found at Onslow beach,NC. We appreciate your guys help!

    ID request round items on rock

    Good morning, this item is cross posted on Facebook. This cool rock was found in the surf at Onslow Beach in Jacksonville NC. There are Gastropods, unidentified shell and mystery circles/ovals by the hundreds if not thousands. My question is what are these little round areas? The rock is shown wet in order to bring out the features listed. Size 1.5” x 1”. The rock is smooth to touch despite seeing texture in photo. Thank you in advance!

    Bone ID request

    Good afternoon, I have now found a total of four bones with this same shape. Found in Jacksonville, NC at Onslow Beach. I posted one over a year ago that was too worn to identify. Since then I have found these three with two in much better shape. Any idea what this bone has come from in relation to location on body and hopefully what animal? Thank you

    Possible tooth-unknown species

    Good afternoon, on a recent trip to Onslow Beach located in Jacksonville, NC I found several interesting items. I will list each separately. I have researched each item and will provide my thoughts on identification. Please feel free to correct me and or provide greater guidance as I am a true beginner. My third item- I believe this item is a small tooth. The shape appears correct however, I have not seen one that looks like this specimen coming from this location. The specimen is very shiny- even when dry as seen in the attached photos. Any help you can provide is greatly appr

    Possible Turtle Humerus Bone

    Good afternoon, on a recent trip to Onslow Beach located in Jacksonville, NC I found several interesting items. I will list each separately. I have researched each item and will provide my thoughts on identification. Please feel free to correct me and or provide greater guidance as I am a true beginner. My second item- I believe this item is a turtle humerus bone. The size, shape and slight twist appear to be correct however, I am not very confident in my ID do the species and bone type. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

    Possible Mammoth Tooth Fragment

    Good afternoon, on a recent trip to Onslow Beach located in Jacksonville, NC I found several interesting items. I will list each separately. I have researched each item and will provide my thoughts on identification. Please feel free to correct me and or provide greater guidance as I am a true beginner. My first item- I believe this item is a small fragment of mammoth tooth. The ridging appears correct however the fragment I’d very thin/small so not very confident in my ID. Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated.

    Onslow Beat, NC

    I am new to fossil identification and was wondering if it’s possible to identify bone fragments found on the shore? Recently there have been a lot of bone fragments along the shore of Onslow Beach, NC and I was trying to identify them. Also, I found this tooth, but haven’t ever found any this large of this shape. Is it possibly a bull shark? Thank you so much for your time
  8. Not sure if this is a mineral sample or a worn down tooth of some type. It was found on 1-3-2018. Height 5cm, length and width 4 1/2 cm. Definitely grooves on the top with brown color running top to bottom between the grooves. Has similar indentations on the top to a tooth. Very worn along the sides and bottom. Found on Onslow beach in North Carolina.

    Onslow Beach find

    Good afternoon, I found this item during a during a pre Hurricane Florence visit to Onslow Beach. It seems to have some earmarks of a bone but the shape is very unusual. I am also leaning towards it being an interesting piece of nothing.Thank you in advance for any and all assistance.

    Bone 3 from Onslow Beach NC

    Hi all, this looks like a bone to me as well and not of the fish variety... Can anyone help me out with identifying it?? Thank you all for your expertise.
  15. Hi all, I found 3 interesting things on my last day at Onslow Beach NC. They look like some sort of bones to me. One I think is a vertebrae. Of what??? I’m hoping you all can tell me. It looks like 3 is the limit on sending pics so I will have to do several posts. If there is information on posting that I should know please point me there as well. I saw something about using the “photo FAQ-page to learn about posting but couldn’t find it. Thank you in advance. Bone 1... Vertebrae?
  16. Hi all! The Mace Brown Museum of Natural History will have a table in the community center this saturday at the Aurora Fossil Festival. I'm currently trying to write up the marine mammal assemblage from Belgrade Quarry, which appears to be transitional between the upper Oligocene Chandler Bridge Formation here in Charleston and the late early Miocene assemblage from the Pungo River Formation in the Lee Creek Mine. Bring your Belgrade marine mammal specimens to our table, I'd like to see them! Several members of this group and the exceedingly generous North Carolina Fossil Club have already don

    I found this item at Onslow Beach in Jacksonville, NC however it wasn’t on the beach. It was found along the roadway approaching the ICW bridge located right before entering the beach strand. It has the shape of a tooth but that might be wishful thinking. Thank you in advance for your assistance.

    Possible Bone

    Good afternoon, I need help in identifying a piece of bone I found at Onslow Beach in Jacksonville, NC. The bone was found in the dune line on the opposite side of the ocean. Can anyone help identify the type of bone and species? Thank you in advance.

    Identification Request

    I have recently started collecting fossils. I found several pieces similar to the attached. Are they fossils or just random items? I think I have about 4 that are extremely similar in shape and size. Weird coincidence if they are all rocks with similar wear patterns.

    Shark Teeth

    Can anyone help me identify these two teeth? I am new to fossil collecting and need to learn more. Can you also explain how you know what type species the teeth came from- this way I will know how to identify in future. Found at Onslow Beach, Jacksonville, NC Thank you

    A Birthday Gift

    From the album: Onslow Beach, Camp LeJeune, NC

    I got up to watch the sun rise on the beach on my birthday. When it was fully up over the water, I looked down at my feet and this was lying there. It's the biggest tooth I've ever found and it was just...there.

    Just a few little things

    From the album: Onslow Beach, Camp LeJeune, NC

    This was just a small portion of what I picked up over the weekend. In two days, with very little time spent on the beach, I had more than I could carry in bones, fossilized shell, holly stones and teeth. (on a side note, I've always been a little concerned about that reddish fossilize bone in the lower middlish spot of the photo)

    My hunting partner

    From the album: Onslow Beach, Camp LeJeune, NC

    He really doesn't find much, but he's a great companion and he's always up for an adventure.
