The newest updates have been added to Lowcountry Geologic. This is a diverse post that contains items from all over, including some new, never-before offered shark teeth species, as well as some old favorites and some previously out of stock items. As usual, the bulk of the post is shark teeth, but not all of it! We continue to add to our Trilobite and Plant Fossils sections.
From Morocco, we added a variety of Paleocarcharodon orientalis, the Pygmy White Shark, and some fantastic pathologic Otodus teeth including several that look more like medeval weaponry than fossil shark teeth. There are some new Isurus oxyrinchus from Chile, and for Micro collectors, the Cretaceous species Ricarddestasia gilmorei that are all under 5/16 inch long. There are some new Eocene teeth from Harleyville, SC, including some Hemipristis curvatus and Carcharocles auriculatus. From Russia, we added several different grades of Jaekelotodus trigonalis. There is a set of new Goblin shark teeth from Mississippi, and a rare eocene tiger shark tooth from the Suwanee River in Florida. Finally, we restocked some out of stock Carcharinus species.
Trilobite collectors will love the new Moroccan specimens from the Anti-Atas Mountains near Tafilalt. We added some exquisitely detailed Phacops and one Paralejurus. From New York, we added some bargain priced but very nice Elrathia kingii, one Asaphiscus wheeleri, and one excellent Dalmanites limulurus.
We have added some new leaves to the Plant Fossils section from the Green River Formation. Look for Fossilized Balloon Vine, Climbing Fern, Sumac, Poplar, and Oak leaves.
Finally, we added some new items to our Marine Mammal Fossil catalogs in this update. There are some absolutely stunning polished whale teeth with incredible detail and coloration. New to the site are some detailed and interesting teeth from the Miocene marine mammal, Desmostylus hesperius, a creature related to elephants.
