  1. Shark Tooth ID Greater Hammerhead?

    I have found three of these teeth and am wondering what type they are. I am thinking Hammerhead but with serrations it would have to be greater hammerhead. These teeth come from Galveston Island and I believe theme to be Pleistocene. We find several types of Carcharhinus species of teeth on the beach along with lemon, tiger, sand tiger and have seen a couple of great whites that another hunter has found. These teeth are much more robust than the Carcharhinus teeth and the nutrient grove is deep and long. Any help is appreciated.
  2. New sites

    I have always looked for shark teeth on folly and Morris island in Charleston SC and I've had very good luck on Morris but I have not found a whole meg yet just broken pieces. I want to expand my sites and start looking in creeks and rivers but I do not know where to start researching good sites. Everytime I Google a spot though I do not get much information. Any advice on places to start?
  3. Shark Teeth ID

    Hi All! I am an avid shark tooth hunter and live on Hilton Head Island. I found a really nice tooth during my daily walk this afternoon, and I would love some help identifying it!! It's approx. 2 inches with beautiful coloring... Is it a great white? They are common to the Port Royal Sound area, where I found it... Thanks in advance!!!
  4. Went to look for shark teeth the other day on the potomac, md side. Found small teeth, and also a rock that looks interesting. Has some crystal or something on it. Any one have any ideas?
  5. Dear fellow fossil hunters, Joseph @The Jersey Devil and I went fossil hunting at an NJ Cretaceous stream on December 22nd and 23rd. On the 22nd I surface hunted, expecting a good wash out due to the previous night's rain. I had secured a section of the stream before realizing that someone had gotten to most of the stream before I had. Instead of continuing forward, I went back and explored some of the sections downstream that I had skipped. These too had been scanned so I ran back to my sifter that I had left upstream and then began sifting. Some hours later I was sifting and saw Joseph. We hadn't expected to see each other but were glad we did. Together we did some sifting and surface hunting before leaving. The next day, I arrived fairly early, hoping that the water had receded enough to expose some gravel bars that I know usually produce well. They were not exposed and I decided to do some water hunting, where I squat down and look in the water for teeth or whatever else I can find. The water was freezing and I was punished each time I went to grab something that was not a fossil. I had said hello to a jogger I saw over the ridge and later my friend Tyler, who does not have an account yet, found me and told me the jogger had mentioned that there was someone else hunting. Hunting on December 23rd has become a tradition between us. For three years now we have both unexpectedly found each other hunting on this day. Tyler did not bring a sifter and, with Joseph soon to be on his way, I asked Joseph to bring a third sifter. When Joseph arrived we all went upstream and began hunting. Not that long into the hunt Joseph found an excellent mosasaur tooth that put me on overdrive trying to find something of equal or greater significance. This did not materialize, but I did end up finding a lot of fossils. Tyler found an awesome heteromorphic ammonite. Some time later Tyler and Joseph decided to do some surface collecting and Joseph found a killer point. Joseph lent Tyler the point for him to study and replicate; Tyler is an awesome upcoming flint knapper. Together we all had fun and I look forward to future hunts with them. Hopefully we all may be able to go hunting with Dave @Darktooth and Frank @frankh8147 this Friday.
  6. @clay@caldiggerHad a very interesting 3 weeks in Nov/Dec beach hunting at North Myrtle Beach, SC. Every year their are different finds along with the old dependable stand-bys. Many I am familiar, some I believe I know what they are but would like confirmation from TFF members and others I have no clue. I try and be there during a high tide as I believe that it stirs up more material. This year, a KING tide occurred-a new term for me-but it occurs a few times a year when the moon is the closest to the earth. Unfortunately many homes were re-flooded after recovering from the hurricane due to this 8+ foot tide. While i did not hunt every day some days i went out morning and evening. Trying to catch (mostly not successful due to timing) a falling tide. Well here without further ado are the pictures. Starting with shark, then other fish, drum fish tooth, skate barb, sand dollar, inter casts clams, snails, complete (both sides) scallop shell and complete ark shell cast with some shell remaining, actual ark shell (only one I found the entire period). I will do a part 2 that focuses on mammal fossils I found. Edit Need help with id for 1st pic 3rd tooth in. Looks like a Carcharocles but cusplets flow into the root without making a distinct cusplet.
  7. We got out for another dirt road hunt here in Florida the other day which turned out to be pretty successful. We found a few nice little teeth, some with matrix still attached (which I love). It was HOT outside, though! We had to leave the AC and vehicle running, then just hop out anywhere that looked good and shoot right back to the vehicle. It had to be in the 90s, but with the humidity, the heat index definitely made it feel even hotter...We also had a dodge a nasty little thunderstorm which is typical for Florida when it's that hot outside. For those of you who don't want to watch a vid, here's a snap from it showing some of the shark teeth:
  8. Hello fellow fossil hunters and merry Xmas! I am a fossil hunter in northeast Florida and here am town until Thursday this week and would love to do some hunting and meet some hunters in the area. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. I have heard that the construction sites in the Venice and Parrish area have been quite rewarding. And any time you all are in the jacksonville area please feel free to hit me up for some hunting on my turf! I found this meg 2 weeks ago (my first meg!!!)
  9. Hey Hi Y'all, I have been searching some very fine (nano) matrix from Shark Tooth Hill. The matrix went through the window screen but not the "grease splatter" screen. I have not taken any pictures with My scope yet, but thought I would show a "teaser" to peak some interest... My finds so far. Largest pieces are about 1 millimeter.
  10. Hey guys, Me and a few buddies are heading to the Calvert Cliffs in Maryland to hunt for some teeth in a week or so. We are planning on staying near the Calvert Cliffs State Park and hunting around Brownies Beach. This is really the only location we know about. We were hoping someone could point us to some other spots as well to check out while we are there (we will be there 2 days). As of right now, our plan is to hunt all day, both days, so we should have plenty of time to hunt more than one area. Any pointers toward locations not too far away would be greatly appreciated! We are coming from NC so we aren't very familiar with the area other than whats very well known.
  11. Hey all, it looks like even with the heavy rain I will still be able to make a break out at low tide, I figure it should be safe enough if it’s low tide because I can stay closer to the waves and away from the cliff. Just wanted to have an epic hunt at the end of 2018. I will probably do a Matoaka-Brownies combo hunt and try to get out there by 11 when the rain has died down a bit. not really expecting to find anything big. Still, it never hurts! Any of you heading out? Cheers, FA
  12. Look guys... not every fossil hunting trip can be insane! This trip was not as plentiful for fossils as our usual videos, but man was it fun!
  13. Hexanchus symphyseal (my first one!!!!)

    From the album Eocene vertebrates of Ukraine

    8 years of collecting in that area, and finally a cowshark symphyseal
  14. Shark teeth

    Here are some shark teeth I have found over the years! I just thought I would share. I enjoy seeing what others have found! Enjoy!
  15. Hey y'all! @Cris and I went out for another Megalodon Shark tooth hunt and I am happy to say the Fossil God's decided to bless me greatly, but unfortunately did not decide to bless Cris Now our friendship is on the line but I guess it is okay because I have fossils. Bahahaa! Check out the video if you're interested and get some time and if you wanna watch Cris try to steal my fossils. Such great times!
  16. Juvenile Megalodon Jackpot!

    Hey y'all! @Cris and I just got out for another trip the other day. We went back to the same spot where that huge Meg came from in the last post I shared here. We ended up doing pretty dang good again with some really nice juvenile Megalodon teeth!
  17. Hi Everyone, I’m headed to Jacksonville FL for Christmas and was looking to get into some fossil hunting somehow some way. Looking for any recommendations within a 4 hour radius. Paid guided hunt? Popular creeks, beaches, or rivers? Would like to take my nieces out but if that’s not feasible then that’s ok. Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks!
  18. Virginia Miocene 10/21/18

    After an extremely successful and enjoyable first trip to the Miocene of Virginia, my dad and I decided to give it another go when we saw that another guided trip was being held in late October. Our first trip resulted in my two biggest teeth ever, massive mako and huge hastalis. This time around, there weren't as many people on the trip, which is typically a good sign because it means less competition. The conditions, however, were brutal. It was very cold, and on top of that there were extremely fast gusting winds that made the river look more like an angry sea. Luckily, the tide was remarkably low while we were there, so there was a TON of ground to cover. I ventured south in search of some large shark teeth, and was successful to an extent. I talked with a woman who showed me a decent meg she had just found, but that was just about the best find I saw all day. Although I didn't come away with anything spectacular this time, I still got a respectable haul consisting of lots of hemis, some decent makos, a couple massive Chesapectan, and more of the typical Miocene finds. A big thank you to @SailingAlongToo again, for his instrumental role in organizing and supervising the trip. Already can't wait to head out again. I know there's a meg out there somewhere with my name on it. I'll find it one of these days. Thanks for reading! ~David
  19. Texas Teeth

    Organized our recent finds from Galveston, TX to add to our collection. Now just need to have the tag made. Is Quaternary as near as I can get in age?
  20. rapp beach hunting

    Had a southwest wind and a slight blowout tide (wind southwest). Found lots (30+) of small teeth in the 'wash' but nothing else but small whale bone pieces and some pottery shards (lots of rusted metal and glass as well along with glass and wood and leaves). Water was really cold. One decent (1 1/2") mako; although numbers were unusually good for the beach, nothing all that interesting or spectacular.
  21. Between work and home life 2018 wasn't much of a year to get out hunting for me. Outside of two short trips down to the Ramanessin I didn't really get out this year. Hoping to change that in 2019. To start I am working on a family vacation to Florida around March. The last time I was down there at that time of year I was able to do a day of creek hunting around Wauchula that netted a ton of small shark teeth including multiple mini megs as well as a slew of ice age mammal items. My favorite was a small glyptodon scute which was one of my personal bucket list items . I am looking for suggestions on areas I can start researching that would be in range of a day trip based out of the Orlando area. Call it a 2 hour radius of Orlando so I have time to hunt. Not looking for anyone's special hunting grounds, just general suggestions. Haven't looked to see who might still be offering guided trips these days as its been a few years since my last visit, but I am willing to entertain that option. I still have the books I gathered for my last trip so I will start with a refresher from those, but any advice would be appreciated
  22. A set of Carcharocles angustidens teeth has been discovered at Jan Juc, Victoria. This is the first set of Carcharocles teeth ever found in Australia and is one of only three sets ever discovered in the world. https://www.perthnow.com.au/technology/science/australian-fossil-hunter-finds-rare-set-of-mega-shark-teeth-ng-b88923078z
  23. Hello all, I am delighted to inform you that I am not dead, although my horrendously lengthy absence from this forum may have suggested otherwise. I am fully aware that I had already committed to being more active after taking a short hiatus a little while back, but I simply fell out of the habit of logging in and posting on this site, mostly due to my extremely busy senior year schedule. I have truly missed posting and sharing my experiences with you all, and I could not be more glad to return. Although I may have been inactive on this forum, I was certainly NOT inactive whatsoever in terms of fossil hunting. I have been on several trips since I last posted. In fact, I've probably nearly doubled my collection. At the beginning of the summer, I decided to purchase a Pelican Mustang 100x Kayak in order to reach remote areas of the Calvert Cliffs that are so frequently cited as remarkably productive. I affectionately named the kayak the H.M.S. Serra, after my favorite prehistoric shark species, Hemipristis serra. Over the course of the summer, I took her out on the Bay many times in search of large shark tooth fossils. I may have failed to find a Meg, but I found some incredible fossils that I gladly added to my ever-growing collection. Below you can find pictures of some of my finds from my various kayak trips to the Calvert Cliffs over the summer, as well as a picture of my beloved Serra. Some of my best finds from all these trips include large Hemis, a perfect 2-inch hastalis (pictured in my hand), lots of cow shark teeth, a crocodile scute, a large Lemon straight out of the matrix, and my first ever Ecphora! I truly had a very productive summer! I couldn't be much happier with all of my finds (unless of course I found a Meg...) and I can't wait to continue hunting in the coming months. The H.M.S. Serra likely won't be out on the water until it gets warm again, but there's still plenty of hunting to do at local sites on foot. In fact, I've already been on a few trips since putting her away for the colder months. I will make trip reports for those soon, and you won't want to miss them! Thanks for reading, and I hope you'll enjoy my future posts! Hoppe hunting! ~David
  24. Found a bunch of Shark teeth today and other interesting bits. If possible, can anyone ID this spike? Catfish spike? Is the hole natural? And found a tiny vertabrae, can anyone tell what animal that may have been from? And I found what to me looks like an alligator tooth, but wrapped in a concretion or something? Or is that just a rock? Thanks for any help!
