    That’s interesting. I was wondering if it could be an ostracod, but I can’t find any that really match what you’ve got. @laura-cotton@mackenzie-smith any ideas on this? I think it is from a lower cretaceous freshwater site in Texas.

    This is now in the Calvert Marine Museum collections.

    • Excellent. So I have been including where specimens are reposited in the new ‘field notes’ section. I’ll go ahead and update this one for you but feel free to copy+paste it in any other entries that may be formally reposited specimens.

    Hey Scott!

    This site may offer some additional help https://www.fossilguy.com/sites/sharktooth-hill/index.htm

    The site operator, Jayson, was one of the guys out at the quarry with me when we met. I think he plans on updating this page with some of his new finds from this past trip as well. @jayson-kowinsky

    This tooth was donated to the Calvert Marine Museum, so I no longer have it to photograph. I can get the catalog number if need be.

    I think these are tilly bones. Tilly bones are a common name for hyperostotic bones in fish, which is a fancy way of saying an excessive bone growth. They look like fish dorsal spines with excessive growth. Unfortunately, I don’t know my fish well enough to say what kind.

    Had an amazing time collecting at the Ernst Quarry (shark tooth hill) with Lee Cone and Jayson Kowinsky! This tooth is Isurus/Carcharodon planus #fossil

    You can even find Megalodon at Kings Canyon (as replicas in the gift shop)

    Did you know there are fossils in Kings Canyon National Park? I didn’t find any, but here’s a picture of the interpretive sign describing them.

    Victor Perez has contributed a new specimen to myFOSSIL!

    • Hi, Victor – Would you be able to add another view (labial) of this specimen? Would you also be able to confirm the location? It currently appears as a centroid. There is also a field for adding notes about your collection site if you are interested in that.

    • I’ll add the other photo when I get back to Gainesville 🙂
