  1. Of all the megs I have seen in person and in videos or pictures, I noticed that almost all lack any prominent curvature. Even the posterior teeth lack curvature. Are the megs with curvature a different age than the straight ones? Just wondering what peoples thoughts were.

    Summertime Hunting

    In the summer, my hunting strategies change. The Peace River is too fast and deep for successful hunting. I travel farther into Bone Valley, either land hunting or very remote lakes, rivers, creeks. Generally, I see no other hunters. I have a few spots that I know about but hunt sparsely and save as last resorts. I am having difficulty making time for hunting. Wife is away to SC, and I am on dog sitting duty, guests and relatives are arriving later this week and next. So, Monday was one of the few days I could go.. My hunting partner called Sunday night, had to back out. I went anyway,

    Megalodon skeleton from Peru

  4. 5.25 inches, or 13.335 cm; on the longest side. It has belonged to my father, for many years now; and he recently gave it to me. It's a cherished specimen.
  5. Seems similar to recent article posted about Zinc isotopes? https://phys.org/news/2022-06-megalodon-predators.html
  6. Hii, I've received a bunch of fossils from my friend in USA. These fossils were all bought in a store (New York area). I understand this makes it harder to identify, but maybe one of you intelligent human beings are still able to figure it out haha This was sold as a shark vertebrae and it measures 30x30x10 (mm). Does anyone know which kind of shark it belonged to and which time period / era it's from? Thanks in advance!
  7. I will like to trade this 4 inch megalodon tooth for a Dinosaur tooth like suchomimus, large abelisaur, raptor, carcharodontosaur, small tyrannosaurid or a good sauropod like titanosaur. No restoration on the tooth, also please not restoration on the tooth that you will offer. Please not spinosaurus and hadrosaur. Better, trade with member in EU.
  8. Hello all. My first purchase. I'm pretty confident of they're authenticity. But I just want any concern settled. Slight impulse buy as they were in an auction and it almost ended. Tooth #1: Actually has sand still stuck in its crevices and still smells like the sea. This might make it an obvious real specimen but I don't know how far fakers are willing to go. The white striations are a lot more prominent in the pictures. They don't really look like that in person. Polishing compound? Reportedly Otodus Megalodon from South Carolina. Tooth #2: Very little sand
  9. Hi all! Went on another expedition to flag ponds in Calvert MD the other day, had probably one of my best hunts so far in the formation. in total I found 112 teeth, 51 shark, 59 ray, 2 bony fish. I yelled in excitement when I found this one in the shell bed, blending into the grays. There's only two things this tooth could belong to and one of them is a shark I have been hunting for years. I am leaning towards Meg in my ID, as the break line seems to go across the middle where the chevron would be, in addition to the profile of the tooth is girthier than the hastalis I h
  10. Hiya! I am looking to purchase my first meg tooth. I found one listed at 4.32” and was wondering if it looks good. I don’t want to get burned on it because I know they’re faked often and the price seems really low. Supposedly found off the coast of North Carolina.

    Pleasant surprises

    Out yesterday. Hunting one of the few spots available during the summer rains. It is mostly marine, sharks, rays, etc. Lots more effort for far fewer finds. Finding any bone is unusual, and I keep everything not a rock, and sometime I keep the rocks also.. There is a rock in this photo, but it LOOKED like a bone while hunting! I sort out all the small shark teeth, keeping jewelry grade and 10 of the best unbroken ones. The rest go to my hunting partner, who sells them on online. It is a recognition of all the contributions he makes to my hunting success. T
  12. A few days ago I arranged some megalodon tooth fossils in my collection in a row according to their size. I found two black teeth that were noticeably different in shape from the other brown ones, their long sides and thickness were almost equal, but the short sides were noticeably more curved and the crowns were more slender. I'm wondering if it's because they are belong to individuals of different genders? Or maybe the black teeth belonged to a different species, because according to photos of the excavation site, the black formation was below the brown formation. Besides,

    Teeth, molars and trilobites

    Hello again. I have acquired some new specimens to expand my "collection" and I would like you to help me corroborate the identifications of these fossils. I have no idea what species the trilobite corresponds to, I only know that it is from Morocco. According to the seller, the tooth was collected north of Florida, in a Pleistocene stratum and corresponds to a Tapirus veroensis. Likewise, the "crocodile" tooth was collected in the Bone Valley Area, Florida, within the Pliocene substratum. The shark tooth was identified as belonging to "megalodon".
  14. Hi Everyone! I'm willing to trade these 2 big boys from my personal collection. I'm looking for Megalodon teeth from more exotic Locations. Chile, Peru, Carribean for example. But also LC aurora and Mehherrin. Always open to other offers too. Tooth 1: Grey 6'05 from SC Small resto done to the lower sides of the restorations. Done professionally. But furthermore natural and practically perfect. Tooth 2: 6'40 coast Meg tooth from NC No restorations done. Almost half a kilo. Absolute monster.

    Megalodon Shell Tooth?

    @siteseer I was looking at a thread from 2010 that you were participating in and it was about a “shell tooth”. I found this piece a couple weeks ago, while in Florida, collecting at a Bone Valley site. I was wondering if there actually are “shell teeth”, and if so, do you think that this is one? Thanks for any assistance.
  16. Hi all, I am looking for Megalodon partial teeth and/or fragments from the Netherlands and/or Belgium. Trade is possible. Kind regards, Ruben

    Shark tooth Id

    I have two teeth I have had for a while questioning their identities. My first tooth is from south Carolina,found earlier this year, I am not sure if it is a meg or a chub on the remaining corner it appears to have a slight cusp.The second tooth I have had for as long as I can remember, it appears to be either a large near posterior great white or a huge bull shark tooth.Any help is appreciated, thank you!

    Is this a megalodon tooth?

    I bought this from a general collectables re-seller. It was listed as a megalodon and is definitely a fossil, but I'm not certain of the id as the seller was not an expert and neither am I and there was no additional info provided. It was quite cheap so I won't be heartbroken if it's more recent or not a shark at all. It's about 54mm across and 50mm long. There may have been fine serrations along the edge that have been worn smooth.

    Extraordinary Common Teeth

    Hey guys, I've been off the radar for awhile .. work you know .. been working on Siggraph for those of you who are familiar with software development. Just wanted to start a new topic here .. This one is right at 3.00" - 7.62cm C. carcharias Bahia Inglesa Formation South of Caldera Provincia Copiapo III Regio de Atacama Chile
  20. Recently bought a 14.25 cm tooth from Indonesia and it cost me half a month's salary. It has a strong smell of rust and a little bit of pyrite filling in bourlette, but I’m not sure if it is real because I never heard about it. Besides, the gap between root and bourlette seems to have been slightly polished. Check with UV light Split edge
  21. Hello all. I was wondering if anyone on here is from (or very familiar with) coastal plain South Carolina. I am not fishing for spots at all, in fact I have a vacation rental on a nice piece of land west of Summerville that I picked and paid for in hopes that we would have fossiling accessible from our home base. We have river access and the land is ripe with creeks. I would like to network with someone knowledgeable about the area to find out if where we are staying might be fossiliferous. This is mostly my teenage son's hobby, but we will definitely hunt as a family. We did hunt
  22. This is actually quite enjoyable finding out which fossils are real and fake. First pic we have a fossil flower stamen from the Green River Formation in Utah. The second piece was quite cheap, but it's from Morocco (Anti-Atlas Mtns.) and it seemed odd to me that the bottom Orthoceras has the same pattern as the matrix below it. But perhaps you have an explanation for that. The third piece is a Ginkgo leaf from the Sentinel Butte Formation of North Dakota. The final piece is a Juvenile Megalodon tooth from Pungo River Formation of North Carolina. Thanks again to everyone who's helped out, I'm

    Is it a meg or a chub?

    I’m looking into this wonderful 5.59” Cuban tooth, but I’m having a hard time figuring out if it’s a meg or chub. It has cusps, but they’re minimal and not very obvious. Seller says it dates from early to middle Miocene, though that’s not very helpful in identifying this tooth. I’m thinking chub due to the cusps existing, but I’d like to gather more opinions on the matter.
  24. I want to go back to Peace River but I don't want to do the normal canoe outpost thing this time. I want to take a kayak south of Zolfo springs were the river gets bendy, shallow, and remote. I don't have a kayak so I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for where I can rent one or if they want a hunting buddy for the second week of May.
  25. We often see pathological shark teeth. This paper reports on double tooth pathologies in the lamniform and carcharhiniform sharks Otodus megalodon and Carcharhinus leucas https://peerj.com/articles/12775/
