  12. So, I've been hunting sharks teeth on and off in South Alabama since a young child. Since my two kids have gotten self sufficient, me and the wife have been taking alot of trips to the river to look for teeth. Finding the normal small teeth, for our area, got me to wondering if there were bigger teeth in our area. That led me to some late nights of researching the ins and outs of my area. The area we are close to has alot of Eocene era fossils and I quickly learned the Carcharocles auriculatus was THE SHARK during this time period. So, my goal became to find a complete tooth in my little honey hole. We would spend weekend after weekend at the river with the kids. My 8yo and 3yo right there with us digging and sifting! Both who want nothing more than to become paleontologist when they get older and sit there picking out ray plates, vertebrae, and teeth with excitement growing every time they see something in the sifter. Over the past several weeks, we have dug 100s of teeth and many other cool fossils which I have added to our collection but just chips of the elusive Carcharocles auriculatus teeth were all we were finding. Last night while at church, I was talking with a family about our finds thus far. You could see their kid's eyes lighting up with curiosity and they asked if we could take them sometime. We had originally planned on taking time to do some house stuff but I could tell their kids really wanted to go. We made a plan to meet this morning before the rain. We made the long hike to the hunting grounds and began to dig and sift. One after the other, the kids and their parents were yelling with excitement finding their first teeth! I was digging around getting dirt for them to sift when I felt that unmistakable sound of hitting something solid. I cleaned around the area and I saw a serrated edged tooth. Surely not...not a complete tooth. I carefully cleaned around the area to make sure not to damage it. I couldn't believe my eyes. A full tooth! I began to shake a little with excitement. I pulled it from the earth and showed everyone. This only pumped them up even more. Although this tooth is rare for our area, we kept digging with no luck of finding another one. The rain began to come in so we cut the trip short but I've babied this thing around all day, picking it up to make sure it is real and I wasn't dreaming. I know it's no 4" tooth but for me, it may as well be. It's become an infatuation for me and the family, so much so I have been looking at planning a family vacation around fossil hunting. My 8yo has expressed alot of interest in finding a megalodon tooth. So, if you guys and gals know of a good place I can take the family to do something like this please share! Below are a few pictures of the things we have found over the past few months as well as my Carcharocles auriculatus tooth I found today.
  13. Hello everyone, I wanted to share my small collection of shark teeth with you. On the Belgian coast there are a few places where you can find fossil shark teeth on the beach. Most of the Belgian shoreline has been raised with sand which lacks fossils. Only a few places have been spared so there you can still find teeth. I'm especially proud of the Xyphodolamia Ensis, it's rare on our coast. The Odontaspis hopei was found by a friend of mine. - Alopias latidens - Brachycarcharias lerichei - Hyproprion acanthodon - Jaekelotodus robustus - Myliobatidae sp. (a ray) - Striatolamia macrota - Xyphodolamia ensis - Odontaspis hopei
  14. Purse park MD

    I only had one sand tiger tooth so I went here to get more. It was a great day for collecting.
  15. Hi everyone. This recently came in the mail. I’m almost positive that it’s real as I bought it from a reputable dealer, but just wanted to make sure. What does everyone think?
  16. Baja shark teeth and ?

    I received a handful of shark teeth from an older local gentleman's collection who told me they were from Baja near the Sea of Cortes between Santa Barbara and Lorentz. I assume they are great white teeth, but I'm hoping for a better geological context if possible (age and formation/group ideally, even if just suspected). I've done some research, but haven't turned up much. I saw a reference to the El Cien Fm, but am hoping for some input from others who have far greater knowledge than I do. Along with the teeth came a small chunk of bone that also came from around the same area. Input on what it is or might have come from would also be appreciated. The largest tooth is 2 and 6/16ths in and the smallest is 2 1/16th in. The bone is 3 3/16ths in long and 1 2/16ths in wide.
  17. Savannah River

    My son and I had a wonderful July4th weekend on Tybee Island (near Savannah). We went in a boat with Sundial Charters to look for fossils along the Savannah River. The Captain and mate were the nicest people, so much history and interesting ecology and nature (we saw dolphins and white pelicans) - I had gone with the same company 10 years ago :). I’m curious if I’ve labeled the teeth correctly and if anyone knows the type of vertebrae or what that piece is in the lower right, please chime in! Thanks
  18. What is this bigger shark tooth?

    I just moved to FL recently and my dad is visiting from MO. We decided to try to find some sharks teeth so headed to Manasota Key to hunt on the beach. We were there for a few hours and found a bunch of smaller teeth. On the way out I found this larger one but it looks really old and rounded compared to a lot of the black ones I've seen. This is only the 2nd time I've been shark tooth hunting here so I have no idea what I'm doing. Is this a megeladon tooth? Any way to determine the age of this one compared to the black ones?
  19. Matoaka Beach

    Hot one today. More small teeth today.
  20. Shell Creek, Florida

    We are looking for public access to surface hunt on Shell Creek in Florida. We've never been there but we understand that Shell Creek is place for surface hunting.
  21. Please help identify

    Please help identify these shark teeth from an Eocene layer on Conecuh River, Alabama. Are 1-3 the same and 4 different?
  22. ID help- Cretaceous sharks from Alabama

    These two teeth are from Greene Co Alabama, Selma Chalk is the formation according to the seller. I believe one is a Cretalamna and the other might be a Protolamna. I am nowhere near confident in my ID's hence the post here. Any help would be appreciated. The only size reference I have is the gem jar is 1 1/4" so these are small teeth.
  23. ID help- Cretaceous shark teeth from Texas

    I saw this little lot of small teeth and instead of guessing I decided to seek some help on the ID. I do not have a lot of information. They are from the Dallas area, near the airport. The original collector believed it was Woodbine formation. most of the pictures were similar angles as well. My knowledge on Texas sharks is fairly limited. I do think the larger one is Scapanorhynchus. Outside of that, I really have no clue. Any help would be much appreciated.
  24. Fossil finds from today

    Here are my finds from todays shark tooth hunt. I found a lot of teeth today but nothing amazing. I did find a nice dolphin tooth. Sorry for the bad quality photo.
  25. Finally...... Jurassic Sharks !!

    I have not been very active with Fossils on Wheels lately. I took some time off and have been just doing family stuff and working. We did manage to start working on improving our shark education programs though and the first area I wanted to address was our total lack of Jurassic era sharks. We are splitting the 4th grade adaptations into 2 one hour long presentations which allows us to get into some deeper science and introduce more sharks. The big gaping hole was in the Jurassic so I searched pretty hard to find some interesting teeth to add. The first picture is two nice Asteracanthus magnus teeth we picked up. I thought this was a great addition for us. I believe this was one of the larger sharks of that time and the teeth are another example of crushing teeth. I was super happy to add some Cretorectolobrus teeth from the UK. This gives us a chance to point out a modern shark family and introduce the kids to Carpet sharks which become a prominent part of the second presentation. I am pretty excited to see the artwork my son comes up with for these small sharks. Not pictured (the camera on my phone is broken and I am too lazy to get out my Canon), a Sphenodus tooth from Russia. I do not believe these are considered a Cow Shark but they in the order Hexanchiformes so we can at least place the order on the timeline in the Jurassic. Important for us because there is absolutely no way we are finding a Jurassic Cow shark tooth lol It also gives us a chance to talk about deepwater sharks and the adaptations they have. Also not pictured and not in hand yet, are two more additions that put modern shark on the timeline. We are getting a Paracestraction tooth which puts Bullheads on the board and a Spathobatis tooth which will be our earliest representative of the rays. We went from zero Jurassic species to 5 which is as far as we will get for now but I am really happy about these additions. They will really help give us a much more complete program and we can introduce some modern shark orders/families pretty early on in the program.
