  1. I needed something to satisfy my itch since I still cannot get out. So i had purchased a box of matrix from Lee Creek. I spent the weekend seperating the matrix into 4 different sizes. I was excited to try my smaller double decker sifter and it worked perfect. I also used that over a window screen. I found a ton of new items that I do not have in my collection. Including my first croc tooth. It is super tiny but it is my first. These are my finds after my first run through. I think I am going to have to get some type of magnifying glass for the smaller stuff. Any feedback on incorrect ID's is much appreciated. Enjoy the pics.

  2. rapp creek hunting

    Shook and beat on my scanner, then a new 'improvement' came from the Internet, not sure the problem, but seems to be working again. Spring gobbler season is over so feel a little safer in the woods. Kids have obliterated two of my favorite spots, so after not finding any thing in THEIR favorite spot I decided just to dig in the creek bed near roots and fallen trees, hoping they had trapped something. A few spots in three trips yielded the "usual" sand tiger spikes, I like the ones with sharp hooked cusps but most of the sites are gravelly which tends to wear down the cusps (took a scan of a few plus one syncytial): Also found several broken cow shark teeth and a miniture ecphora (gravel is hard on shells and fragile teeth). More tiger shark teeth than usual as well: The main thing I find in gravelly spots are verts (usually broken) and drum "teeth": Also find some (some chipped) angel shark teeth (bottom of scan) with "microteeth": Not many mako teeth (two for sure!): Also found a 3 3/4 inch whale inner ear (bulla) and skate teeth (no plates) and grey shark teeth (no real big ones). I had hoped to switch over to fishing, but the weather is more conducive to shark tooth hunting.
  3. rapp creek hunting

    Too cold and rainy to fish (no speckled trout yet for me, just out of season rockfish, huge cow nosed rays, and stiffback perch). So went tooth hunting. Unfortunately the kids(?) had dug a giant hole in one of my favored spots, so I ended up hunting one of the kids' favored spots. A hard grayish blue clay area which is usually too hard and unproductive for me, but when walking past I saw a black shiny object glinting in the sun; looking closer I noticed a fine serrated edge and digging around it soon discovered just a shard from a megalodon (which I had never noticed in the creek before). Very disappointed of course that it wasn't whole, but the clay was softer than usual with all the rain so I was able to dig into the bank and did pretty well. Several hemi teetch and pieces (lots of busted stuff here) plus a few makos and lots of teeth that are not the usual sand tiger spikes. Not sure what they all are, but usually these are in the minority, today they were the main things I was finding. Generally these teeth were fewer than what i find in the sand and gravel, but bigger and heavier. The kids must have found some nice stuff here. A layer of giant tree oysters below and mostly scallops (pectans) above, some in better shape than the teeth. Having some issues with my scanner, but will post some of my more "normal" finds from last week as well if I can get the scanner going.
  4. Mako shark

    From the album Fossil Collection

  5. Hello, this is my first time at attempting to trade fossils. In this trade I have a variety of fossils that I am willing to trade for other fossils (This is all offered together). I am specifically looking for amber inclusions, Mesozoic vertebrate material, dinosaur fossils, and small theropod teeth from any location. 1- Large Clam Shell from the Jurassic of Madagascar 2- Enchodus sp. fang from the late Cretaceous of North Texas 3- C. Hastalis (Mako) Shark Tooth from bone valley of northern Florida (1.6 inches long) 4- 2 Burmese amber specimens from the Mid Cretaceous (99 million years old) of Northern Myanmar 5- A dark reddish Cretaceous Burmese amber specimen with a beetle 6- A Clear Cretaceous Burmese amber specimen with a Parasitoid wasp (Scelionidae Indet.) 1.
  6. How big did mako teeth get?

    Found these in a creek the biggest one bottom right is 2.25” the one next to it with the broken root Has smaller blade but same length all together. The next is 2”. I was wondering if these are really big or more like above average? Thanks
  7. Benedini or Mako?

    Hello all! I am hoping someone can give me a definitive answer about this tooth I found. Is this a Benedini or a Mako? Fyi, its less than a tenth of an inch from being 3 inches.
  8. Bayfront Park 01/25/20

    Me and a friend spent a couple hour searching and a little sifting and left with over 100 teeth! Here are the best from the trip, a couple of makos, a hand full of nice tigers, two bronze whaler?, two cow sharks, and a baby posterior megalodon tooth!
  9. rapp beach hunting

    The wind has been working against me (need a nice SW steady breeze) and only made a couple of trips. Two shrimp coprolite burrows, two decent makos, nice cusps on a few sand tiger shark teeth. Need to organize all my shrimp coprolites, but the weather (excepting the wind direction!) has been very nice.
  10. rapp beach hunting

    With deer hunting season started, I'm avoiding the woods area in favor of beach hunting. We have had several windstorms from the north, which should throw up stuff on the beaches I hunt. Gave away all my bigger mako teeth in Singapore, so need to restock! So far, I've had several good trips for shrimp coprolite burrows (will post what I have later) but not much teeth. Today was nice weather-wise however the water (cold and clear) was very high at low tide, so I need a blow-out wind (from SW) to get to the best spots (shell lines). I was lucky today. Although very few of the usual small teeth were in the wash, I spotted several "teeth" that I could barely reach and two turned out to be mako/ great white. One ugly/great character tooth was the biggest I've found this year at over 2 1/2" (6.5 cm in photos). More of a curve to the tooth blade than other makos I've found, usually almost flat like the 1 1/2" pretty one. Also found a "whale bone" with parallel long indentations on one side (perpendicular to the 'grain' visible on two sides). Curious if this is a structural feature/ specialized bone or maybe just weathering?
  11. Shark Tooth Identification Help

    Hi, I recently bought this tooth from a friend, but I am uncertain which species it belongs to. The root is very thin with great white characteristics, but the lack of serrations on the blade is more like a mako. My best guess is that it is a Giant White Shark (Charcharodon Plicatitis). It measure 2.75 inches. The last 2 photos show the tooth in comparison to a Great White tooth on the right side and a Mako Shark tooth on the left side of the tooth in question. What do you believe it is? Thank you for helping me out.
  12. Doing alright since I moved down to FL! No more dinosaur footprints down here, but there is an abundance of teeth!
  13. Went with a friend. Of all the shark tooth hunts I've gone on, only found small stuff. Well this one day I got a few Megs, I think eight Makos, and a couple broke small Megs! Best hunt so far!!! I'm liking living in Florida so far! Having much better fossil hunting luck then I did when I lived in Connecticut!
  14. New fossil hunter here! I recently moved to Florida for graduate school and was quickly introduced to fossil hunting. I've been addicted ever since. Here are some images of the first fossils I've found here in North Florida. Mako for sure, but can anyone confirm what kind of bone I have? I'm thinking it *could* be mastodon rib, but that's just an amateur's guess. Anyways, I'm excited to continue showing my finds! Baby meg pictures to come...
  15. Help: The Carcharias spectrum

    I’m trying to ID the tooth at the center of this spectrum. To its’ left, Sand Tigers. To its’ right, makos. But the specimen in the middle is... a bit of both?
  16. Thick and curvy

    None of my other many Mako’s look like this... So hooked. Confirming that that’s what it is.
  17. mako teeth for Singapore!

    These are some of the better mako teeth I found over the last year (mostly in the winter). Will be sending the prettiest ones to Singapore. My Singaporean friends have no shark teeth or fossils.
  18. Nice Mako and lower Hemi.

    Today I found the first complete Mako in a few months and I found my biggest lower Hemipristis. I also found a lot of bone today and 2 fish vertebrae. All of these where found near Beaufort SC.

  21. Hello Everyone, Summer is here and the trades must begin ! ... If anyone is looking for some C. hastalis from the Cooper River, SC here they are. These were found diving (not by me I'm not crazy ... ok, not THAT crazy) I'm looking for something with a bit more color, complete (as complete as these examples ?) and any size really .. lightning, scorched, red, green, blue .. what have you. If you have seen my images in the past you will get my drift. I've attached a few below .... 4 for 1 .. 1 for 4 .. 4 for 4 ... I'm easy. They are all pushing 1.5-1.75 in Cheers, Brett Here are a few examples of what I'm looking for .....
  22. Going to post this multiple times due to multiple images. There are just a couple here that I am most curious about but would love any and all feedback. I will post in the order of priority for lack of better words. For some context, took the family to the peace river up in Zolfo Springs, near Arcadia. We found approx 50 teeth, mostly small but some cool ones. Lots of Ray plates and some bones. Most of these are placed up against a US penny simply for a size reference. Any help in identifying would be much appreciated. Thanks all!!!
  23. Mystery Shark Tooth

    Hi all, I recently went on a trip to Brownie's Beach in Maryland in search of Hemies, and I came home with some pretty good little teeth and a few decent sized ones. However, there was one tooth that I found I could not identify. I am not really sure what shark it belongs to, it sort of resembles a sand tiger but the root is very robust and thick. Im more or less lost as to what it could be. Wishful thinking, but I thought it might be a baby megatooth shark or a mako or something along the lines of that. Its a long shot, but I thouht i would ask to see if anyone else could Identify it, haha!
  24. rapp beach hunting

    High water (east wind pushing salt water up the river) but fairly clear. Spent a few hours starting at low tide. Not much debris on the beach, guessing stuff was sand covered. Used a lot of bug spray, but bright sun and a light west breeze kept the no-seeums away. My luck continues the same; decent yellow mako, but broken. A small prettier mako. Bunch of triangular grey shark, bunch of sand tiger spikes (did find an interesting pottery shard and some weird drift wood). Actually ended up with over twice as many teeth as I thought, but no shrimp coprolites or even batoid stuff. Nice day and a bit of exercise. Fun watching the ospreys (getting to be friction between them and the eagles).Need to find some cowshark teeth.
  25. Oh, and one other tooth that I (actually my dig-happy girlfriend found the Tiger) found at Ernst yesterday. It looks like a relatively common lower Mako, but has such a bulbous root on it that I originally thought it was the elusive Paratodus Benendeni. However, it not having a bourlette leads me to believe that it's truly a false, False Mako. Thoughts? The blue cube is 1" square. Many thanks. I just realized that the false False Mako even has a false bourlette (Mineral staining) on it.
