Greens Mill Run, Greenville, NC mystery teeth/fossils

Recommended Posts

I’ve made several trips to Greens Mill Run recently, lots of shark teeth and belemnites, large intact scallops and clams, large whale ribs and jaw bones and ear bones. However I have 3 fossils I cannot identify.

 

Some pics are below:

The top tooth is either mosasaur or crocodile, not sure which. The other two, I’m clueless. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi There,

 

Welcome to the forum !

The second image is a Enchodus fish jaw piece.

The third is a Tilly bone (swollen fish bone) most likely from a fin spine. Here are modern examples.
