  1. First meg!

    Finally found my first meg down at Bayfront Park this weekend! Just laying there at the edge of the water looking up at me. Tip and one side are damaged and it's not the biggest by any means but it looks perfect to me! Does have really nice, sharp serrations, and the root is in great shape.
  2. Helodus simplex & rankinei

    From the album Scottish Carboniferous freshwater shark teeth collection

    Helodus tooth file Upper Carboniferous, Westphalian A Central Belt of Scotland 315 mya 9mm
  3. Bayfront Park 3/26/16

    Well, still have yet to find my first Meg, but I am happy with this Mako and hemi. Mako is 1 5/8" and I love the color. Biggest hemi I've found so far at 1 3/8". Found a fair amount of decent sized teeth and a few verts as well.
  4. Bayfront Park-3/19/16

    Headed out last Sunday to Bayfront Park. I got down there before the sun even came up and there were still people down there. I don't think its possible to go without running into some one down there. The water was really high and cloudy from all the rain we've had, so pickings were slim. I did manage to find a mako sticking out of some fallen formation out of the cliffs. The tooth is in great shape but the gums are a little beat up. What i really like about this mako is it really shows some wicked feeding damage from where the shark bit its own tooth. I wonder what it could be eating. I hope you enjoy. If you frequent Bayfront park hit me up I'd love to have someone to go with sometimes. Boneheadz
  5. N Myrtle Beach SC Trip

    Hello, Here are some photos from my beach collecting trip at N Myrtle Beach SC/Cherry Grove Beach SC. I'm pretty sure most of my shells in the photos are modern shells and not fossils but I grouped them all together for the photos! I was hoping for more sharks teeth but it was fun trip none the less. Weather was great! I do have some questions about some of them but I'm guessing I should post that in the fossil ID section?
  6. Calvert Cliffs weekend

    The wife and I spent our anniversary weekend in Chesapeake Beach hunting shark teeth and fossils at Bayfront Park. We had a great time! Most of the teeth were small, with the biggest being a decent Mako about 1.25". After Saturday, we ended up with 405 shark teeth, a couple small porpoise teeth a handful of small shark verts, a few porpoise verts, a fishtail vert, a small stingray tail, ray plates and several pieces of bone that look like ribs. As soon as I figure out how to get my pics under 2MB, I will put them up for everyone to see. You guys were right. Going around that first point was the key. Also learned to never stop looking. My biggest tooth was found out in the open, after at least 20 people walked past it. Couldn't believe it!!! Thanks again for all the help and suggestions everyone gave me in my last post.
  7. Hello TFF members, The family and I decided to book a trip to Las Vegas the week of March 21. I have to admit, part of the decision was due to the fact Sharktooth Hill was only a ~ 4 hour drive away. I had looked at the Ernst Quarry website and noted Slow Curve was open Tues-Thurs that week. I sent an email to Rob (quarry website) right after booking the trip, as I have wanted to get out there for many years now. I have not heard back yet, but I also left a voicemail and it stated it might take 7 days for a response. I'm looking to drive over either Wed. March 23 or Thurs. March 24, depending on the weather. I know this is short notice and during the week, but if anybody is interested in meeting up at the Quarry, I would enjoy having some company to dig and talk to on the adventure (family is staying in Vegas with friends, so I'm making the trip alone).

  8. I am leaving tomorrow morning and will be there this weekend with my family, who also shares a passion for fossil hunting. Typically we hunt at Purse st. Park, or Brownies Beach, and have tried Matoaka and Flag ponds. Not asking for your secret spot (but it would be very appreciated) but do you know of any productive, less well known beaches? Being from Ohio, we only get to go two or three times a year so we try to get the most out of each trip. Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated!DM me if you want to be more discreet. Thanks in advance!
  9. Bayfront Park-2/28/16

    It's been a really long time since I last went hunting at Bayfront Park. So I took the trip down there to see what i could find. It was a beautiful day out, but with nice days comes a ton of people down on the beach. I headed around the cliffs and the number of people dropped haha. The water was murky and having people beat me down there resulted in not finding much that day. I was able to find a nice vert and a jaw bone that looks like to me to be either dolphin or porpoise. There was also a lot of cave ins along the cliffs so everyone be careful out there! Boneheadz
  10. Purse State Park 2/20/16

    I went down to Purse state park this past Saturday morning. Didn't find anything crazy but did manage to take some pics for you guys. Someone even had their Duck blind set up right on the beach, not sure if this is legal or not. I know its legal to hunt down there but seeing up a structure, I haven't seen this before. Also took a few macro shots of some small teeth i found. Enjoy!
  11. Hello all, I'm still a newbie to all this so I was hoping that some of you may know some different entry locations for Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. I have entered at the Travis St Bridge and the Sherman Healthcare Center. The Healthcare Center was recommended by a local I ran into on my last trip. He said he has entered there regularly so I gave it a shot. There was a lot of glass and trash in that location so extra caution should be taken in that area. Can anybody recommend any other entry locations? Hiking is not huge concern I was just hoping for ideas. Has anyone ever parked at Binkley Park and searched Sand Creek? Is there anywhere around Post Oak that is unfriendly to hunters? I promise to leave some teeth for all the other hunters out there (but I would love to find my first arrowhead). Thanks in advance.
  12. Westmoreland SP 2/17-2/18

    I had an opportunity to go down to Westmoreland twice this week because I was lucky enough to have off work. The first day I took my GF with me because she had off as well. The first day was pretty nice and sunny, the wind wasn't a factor that day so it was perfect for hunting in the water. Being down there only a short time I found one of the most beat up shamer megs I've ever found. Im not sure how it could've gotten this bad, but atleast it was a good sign. We found a few teeth that day including a decent little Snaggletooth. On the second day i went down by myself and found that the wind had picked up significantly from the previous day. I was limited to whatever was laying on the beach. Luckily, I was able to find a couple teeth including a beat up Mako and a nice upper snaggletooth. Here are some pics for you to enjoy. If anyone has any theories to what happened to this meg, I'd love to hear them. The inside of it is mushy and pretty much broke apart in my hand. Thanks, Boneheadz
  13. Summerville Creek Hunts

    Otter creek field report 02-13-16: The day turned out to be a wonderful day to hunt South Carolina fossils. I met with one other at 1pm. We gathered our gear and headed out to find the elusive shark teeth and various other fossilized materials. We arrived at a deep cut creek site and began to survey. The first item that was very noticeable was very little evidence of other fossil hunters. What we found was blue marl, tan and brown marl, blue limestone, phosphate, and large stones (gravel of sort). Sanding-in was obvious in 90% of the creek. There were no teeth protruding from the dark gray sandstone walls. The large stones (golf ball to base ball size) had to be removed prior to gathering material and moving it through the sifter. The teeth that began to appear were small but grading upwards in size. I collected about 40 in all. The sizes ranged between .5” to 1.0”. The findings included Tigers, Hemi’s, Mako, Bull, Sand, Lemon, and Black Tip Sharks. Photos to follow.
  14. Fossil Hunting Va/Md

    Hey, i often hunt fossils in Virginia and Maryland and am primarily looking for shark teeth and other marine fossils. I frequent Westmoreland SP and Purse SP. Ive been hunting alone a lot lately and although I'm getting used to it now, I'd still feel more comfortable and enjoy it more if i had someone to go with. I mainly go during the week because less people are down there hunting. If anyone would be like to meet up, send me a message. Thanks, Boneheadz
  15. Shark Teeth

    I have a pair of nice shark teeth that I recently purchased for wire-wrapping, and there was no information about them at all. Now I want to include them in a display of fluorescent minerals and fossils for my Mineral Club Open House on Sunday (at the Museum of the Earth in Itaca, NY if anyone's interested), and I'd prefer to have at least a partial identity for them. Here they are: Thanks for any information!
  16. Deep cut old creek survey

    I found another site I want to survey. If it looks good I will get in the creek and hunt for teeth and other fossils. No guarantee that there will be teeth there, although this is a a creek that HAS produced good sized teeth. I have never been to this particular location within this creek but have been to others WAY up stream with so-so luck. This particular location is not a location that I know of anyone having hunted before. It is much further down the creek than I usually go. I found this location using Google maps. I am targeting Jan 30 or Jan 31. The temperature is predicted to be 71 degrees and 67 degrees. Contact me if interested.

  25. Megatooth Shark Comparison

    From the album TEETH & JAWS

    Occasionally, teeth of the two sharks, Carcharocles megalodon and Carcharodon carcharias, may be confused for one another. Ususally, this is a problem with a worn or otherwise damaged tooth . . . especially where the teeth of the two sharks may be found together, as in Florida's Peace River (C. carcharias teeth are uncommon in the Peace River). Megalodon and the great white shark now are generally believed to be not closely related.
