    Attached are pictures of a tooth I found in Aurora, NC.  I cannot positively identify this tooth.  The closest I could find in my research was the Hump-toothed shark (Hybodus novojerseyensis).   Any assistance in positively identifying this tooth is greatly appreciated.

    Found this tooth in Aurora, NC.   Can anyone confirm identification as to which sub-species of Sand Tiger shark that it belongs.  I am leaning towards Palaeohypotodus rutoti.  Thanks for your assistance.

    Victor…I am still not sure if it is.  I will be going up to Aurora next month and maybe I can get a definite ID on it.  Thank you so much for taking the time on ID ing this tooth.  I will let you know if I get a decision on it.   Good luck fossil hunting this year.

    Victor…thank you for your response.  I do have to disagree with your suggestion that it is from the Carcharhinus genus.  None of those teeth have exaggerated flat roots.  I was leaning more towards Carcharia cupidity but not 100% convinced.  Thanks again.

    attached are pictures of a tooth I found in the spoils pile from Lee Creek Mine at Urora Fossil Museum in North Carolina.  While the tooth does not have any evidence of missing cusplets, it could have had them at one time.  There are very small serrations on both sides of the crown.  The front top of the root is almost flat towards the back of the tooth.   The root also has a deep groove on the back side of it.  Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

    Sadie this was actually found at Clark’s Quarry which is about 23 miles NE from Belgrade Quarry.

    I am just seeing this forum for the first time and wanted to add to Eleanor Gardner’s request for land mammal fossils.  I posted picture within three messages on the Fossil Horse Forum that illustrates a horse molar that was discovered February 2018 at Martin Marietta’s Clark’s Quarry in New Bern, NC.

    This is the third of three messages regarding pictures of Fossil Horse Tooth – Equus

    Here is the second message of more pictures of Fossil Horse Tooth – Equus

  • 5 months, 2 weeks ago

    I discovered the attached Equus molar back in February 2018 at the Martin Marietta Clark’s Mine in New Bern, NC.  The fossil was laying next to some brush and trees on a small ridge away from the spoil piles.  Due to limitation on how many attachments I can send I will send other pictures that are more detailed.  I don’t know if this helps your forum but decided to put it here and then if you think its significant, it could be considered to be added to the Belgrade Mine Forum.
