    Hey Kev, what state are you collecting in? I think you’ve got a little bit of a crinoid stem.

    It’s an astragalus (ankle bone), but unfortunately I don’t know my mammals well enough to tell you what from. @smoran can you narrow it down?

    Seems more likely to be a crab claw than a tooth. Is it hollow? Can you post a picture of the base?

    It is from a genus of extinct fish called Cylindracanthus, which can be found in Florida. They lived from the Cretaceous through the Eocene, so it seems likely that the information you got from the seller is accurate.

    Now that I see it with the coin for scale. I’m leaning towards rock. It may be a broken mold of a clam. The grooves could be traces from a sponge. Still hard to say for sure though

    I can’t quite tell if it’s bone or rock. Unfortunately, if it is bone I don’t think I can identify it from this photo.

    I joined the Florida Paleontological Society for a collecting trip just across the border in Georgia. #event #collectionsite

    This tooth is from Carcharodon hastalis. It was originally considered an extinct mako, but now is thought to be the ancestor of the living Great White shark. Very nice find!

    Oh I’m sure it did, but possession is 9/10 of the law right? 😉

    Unfortunately, the facebook link won’t open for me. But either way, Gordon Hubbell has a small exhibit on Megalodon pathologies, one of which is referred to as a split tooth. He describes it as two teeth forming where only one tooth should form, and the asymmetry of your tooth looks very similar to the example he shows. I haven’t seen any indication of parasymphyseal teeth in any of the associated dentitions I’ve looked at so far, but I certainly don’t know for sure.

    • The item was attempting to show you was 2 bone valley teeth with same pathology. Split tooth makes sense.

    Unfortunately I don’t think I can confirm this from a photo.

    That’s an oddly shaped chubutensis!

    • It is fairly common pathology. It appears that megalodon quite possibly was a giant sand tiger and these may represent throwback parasymphyseal teeth. See: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1462470023889378&set=pcb.2189215284477720&type=3&theater&ifg=1

    Looks like a Trachemys neural (part of the mid-line of a pond turtle shell).

    It looks like a fossil drum fish, family Sciaenidae
