Welcome from MinnesOta, USA! I love the photo too! I don't think we have shark's teeth here :) But we have other fossils :)

The more I learn, I realize the less I know.

Welcome to the forum. There are all kinds of fossil collectors here, but plenty of shark tooth collectors as well. So there is not shortage of trading buddies if you decide to diversify you collection. Enjoy!

Hi, it is 13°C subzero now.

But it was 27°C a week ago.

Really cold, but we are accustomed.

That's Volga's bank not far from Volgograd.

A dark gray layer is Kamyshin bed (Upper Thanetian).

It consists of gravelite which is full of worn teeth of sand sharks and mitsukurinids:

I've counted 7, who can more? ))

And this is the biggest tooth from the bed - Otodus obliquus ajatensis:

Another site is near the town of Kamyshin:

Limestone ballstones are common on a riverside of Volga.

They are called "Karavay"s and include about a hundred species of lower palaeocene molluscs.

Among them are Picnodonta sinzowi Netsch, Ostrea reussi Netsch, Turritella kamischensis

Netsch, Cuccullaea, Crossotella and so on.

Hi Artyom,

What a beautiful place to collect! How do you ever pull yourself away?
