  1. I like to have extant teeth in my collection to contrast with fossil teeth of the same or similar species. I bought these teeth at a tourist shop in Las Vegas a few years ago. They had been made into necklaces. I thought they might be H. elongata based on the root shape and would be interesting to display along with my fossil H. serra teeth. I am not convinced my ID is correct, especially considering the serrations go all the way to the tip. Any ideas?
  2. Lee Creek A. superciliosus?

    Can anyone confirm that this tooth is A. superciliosus? Found in Lee Creek spoils pile, North Carolina
  3. Does anyone keep extant shark teeth in their fossil shark teeth collections for comparison and reference? Is it poor form to ask for an ID on this forum of an extant tooth to see if it is related to a fossil tooth?
  4. I found this heart breaker of a beautiful C. chubutensis tooth in a Lee Creek spoils pile in North Carolina. Since it was broken almost exactly in half longitudinally, it offered an interesting interior view of the structure of a fossilized shark tooth. In a process similar to that used in industrial quality control work, I evened out the rough edges and polished the now flat surface to reveal the fossilized core of the tooth and the contrasting enamel.
  5. I acquired these megs years ago, probably from a rock and fossil shop in Texas, USA. Is it at all possible to speculate where they might have originally been found based on their coloration and condition? Also, they have been "preserved" with what looks like clear lacquer. Is there a way to remove this without damaging the teeth? I would like to return them to somewhat of an "as found" condition. I realize they are poor quality specimens and not very large, but the shiny coating is bugging me!
  6. Moroccan Squalicorax pristodontus

    Are all these three Moroccan shark teeth all Squalicorax pristodontus? Is there any other Squalicorax Sp. found there?
  7. Moroccan Otodus?

    Are all of these Moroccan shark teeth Otodus Obiliquus?
  8. Hello all, ToothMan here. This is my first trip report! I just joined this great forum. Stumbled upon it the other day. I have only been collecting about a year, and mostly fossilized sharks teeth at that. I also collect ray plates, I have one porpoise tooth, two crocodile teeth, some crab claw fossils, mostly marine creatures but focus mainly on shark teeth. I'm looking forward to expanding my searches for more than just teeth. Here is a link https://imgur.com/gallery/CO2q2gg to an imgur gallery from my most recent trip. Trip report below! I have some great teeth in my collection but wanted to report on my best finds to date, which ocurred over the past two days. I had some exceptional luck, paired with a keen eye, resulting in my first two Megalodon teeth ever found. I live in Solomon's, Md, and frequent some of the same sites I'm sure some of you do. Those being Calvert Cliffs, Brownies beach, flag ponds, etc. I also hunt Cove point a lot. My grandparents have a house down there so I frequent that beach often. Ive had my best finds so far there over the past two days. Last night I was there at low tide around 10:30 and found my first Megalodon tooth! I was ecstatic! I didnt think you could find those here. I thought they were mostly at calvert cliffs but I guess some wash down. I found a bunch of smaller teeth as well. Then today, I went back around noon for low tide again. Did my usual walk up to the point, picking up a bunch of small teeth along the way couple with a few hemi's here and there. I walked around past the lightouse and began finding some really nice mako's! I absolutely love finding mako teeth. Found some in the waves crashing and even up at the high tide line. The water,was still a little cold today but bearable. I wore shorts and sandals and took my sandals off, walking thru knee deep water one way searching, and up on the beach looking on the way back. I went home, happy with these finds. But I decided to return around 5 even though the tide was coming back in and I didnt expect to find much. But boy was I wrong. By this point it was really windy and the waves were really large, crashing and moving material all over the place. This is good as it turns up more stuff, but its harder to collect. You have to be quick. I felt like the karate kid snatching a fly out of my trainers hand diving in to grab teeth I had just spotted before they were swept away by the surf! Many were lost that I couldnt grab quick enough. I was picking up quite a few teeth though, a bunch of makos and some nice hemi's, when I saw a huge mako! A wave had just crashed on it, I let it recede, spotted ir again, and snatched it up before another wave could sweep it away. I had been out for hours now, and was really happy with my finds. I decided to take one last walk around the point and then I saw my second meg ever sticking up out of the sand. Only the top gum line was exposed and my heart jumped as I knew exactly what it was and it looked big! I scooped it up out of the sand and cleaned the barnacles off it. I was and am so happy! Never thought id be finding Megalodon teeth. Ive had the fossil hunting bug for about two years now. It really is addicting. Happy hunting, all. -ToothMan
  9. Moroccan S. macrota?

    Are all of these Moroccan shark teeth Striatolamia macrota?
  10. Lee Creek ID and pathological?

    Please ID this tooth found in a Lee Creek spoils pile and is it pathological?
  11. Which Lee Creek Carcharocles Sp.?

    I found these in a Lee Creek spoils pile. Which ID is correct? (juvenile?) C. megalodon on the left, C. chubutensis on the right? Both C. chubutensis?
  12. Shark teeth from Belgium?

    Please help me identify these teeth. I bought them at a fossil shop, out of a box labeled "42 million years old discovered in Balegem, Belgium". Where I am confused is that there were several H. Serra teeth in the box, which from my research should not be found in this location. Thus all these teeth are suspect at this point.
  13. Ok so today I went shark tooth hunting and I came across what to me looks like a tusk or horn of some sort. I honestly have no clue. Anyone else know what this might be? They’re about the size of a penny.
  14. Hey hi Everybody! I like the unusual teeth. And posterior teeth are some of the most unusual in any given species. So I thought I would start a thread for posterior shark teeth of any species. To kick it off..... Here are some from Shark tooth hill (round mountain silt). I think these are Carcharodon hastalis and (?) planus. The smallest one is just under 1/8th inch wide. So, if You have any posterior shark teeth - please post pictures here. Thanks, Tony
  15. Need advice for SC collecting

    I am going down to Hilton Head Island in a few weeks, and I was thinking of stopping in Summerville to collect some shark teeth. This will be my first time hunting in South Carolina, so I would appreciate any suggestions as to good spots (I am especially interested in Meg teeth).
  16. Went fossil hunting in a creek near Gainsville, Florida and found a ton of teeth but this one stands out to me from the lemons and bull sharks that make up the majority of our finds. Noticed it has a notch at the top was wondering if it could be a hammerhead?
  17. Small teeth from flag pond

    I had around 50 similar small teeth lumped together from flag pond in Maryland. After zooming in on them, half were serrated and the other half were not. Now I have two piles of small teeth. I’m learning a little more each day. The first tooth had no serrations, the second had worn serrations, and the third had obvious serrations.
  18. Eocene shark teeth identification
