  1. Rappahannock River

    I got out for the second time this week, I'm getting spoiled! I was lucky enough to try somewhere new today. I have a friend from a hunting forum that invited me out to his family's land along the Rappahannock River. He had told me that while they didn't actively look for shark teeth, they occasionally would spy them while duck hunting in the fall or swimming in the summer. I spent about 3 hours with him, and while what we found wasn't a whole lot, he was pretty surprised to see that many teeth...and the vertebrae completely shocked him. I found a bone that I'm curious about, not sure if there is enough there to figure out what it is from though. The haul: Dolphin vert The following are various pictures of the unknown bone:
  2. It has been almost a month since I was last able to get out, I was happy to be able to get half a day to go play at the river. I had my choice of hunting during a good tide in the Paleocene area upriver or a bad tide down river in the Miocene area...of course I chose the latter! LOL! I had picked up some neoprene chest waders that I have been itching to try out, I knew I didn't need to use them upriver but at Stratford Hall, I would have to head into the water to sift. Well, I can honestly say that I got a great deal on them (used once by a new duck hunter who decided he didn't like duck hunting)...they were comfy and dry, but I now understand why most people prefer the light waders. Neoprene is fine for a place like Stratford Hall where you don't move much, I would have hated them if I had to cover any distance...Lesson learned! Anyway, back to the trip...a lot of little stuff and some neat frags. My best find was when I sat down to take a break and spied the root of the mako sticking up...my best so far! I also thought the little dolphin tooth was pretty cool, much smaller than the one I found during the last trip here. The little vert is pretty interesting as well. Here's the pics: My biggest mako so far, I like the colors on it. Dolphin tooth...a real little one. Little vert, I'm guessing some sort of bony fish based on the shape.
  3. Please help identify the four objects in the attached pictures. I thin the shark teeth is the Otodus appendiculatus or Cretalamna Appendiculata. I am unsure on the 'shell' and the two remaining objects. Perhaps, they are the fangs of the Enchodus Sp? All were found at the Frankstown Fossil Site (W.M. Browning Cretaceous Fossil Park) in Frankstown, MS. Thanks for your help.
  4. Super duper day :)

    Made an impromptu trip to Venice today.. Managed to pick up a couple of teeth, even though there were a lot of people collecting.. any ideas?
  5. The temperatures are finally dropping here in North Florida, signaling an end to this year's dive season. Today was the final trip. At the end of september my Dad and I found a new spot which gave up some nice megs the first day. Problem was, when I went back with my buddy I just couldn't seem to get into the good material. I was ready to give up on the spot but when we went out five days ago, he score two 5" megs during his second dive. I barely found anything so I was pretty psyched out, sorta thought I was losing my touch. So I got myself mentally prepared for another potentially poor day, but I was hoping to end the season with another 5-incher (don't we all) Well, the water was 63 degrees and the air was 72. Not bad except that it was sort of cloudy and I forgot my wind breaker. Even with a wetsuit, the wind will chill you. We did three tanks. The first was great. I scored half a dozen small megs in 30 minutes, but the second half of my dive was a big bust. I ran over a shelf of barren limestone and couldn't find my way back to fossil material until I was down to 500 psi and had to come back up. On the second tank, we decided to move upstream to start the second tank where we left off with the first. It worked. I hit the bottom in sweet, sweet gravel--the big chunks that usually hold nice teeth--and started working my way upcurrent. It was slow going at first, ran across some limestone shelves and only scored a little beat up meg in the first 20 minutes. I decided to skirt the edge of the hole, where the steep bank forms a natural barrier. I started running across big rocks and bone fragments--always a good sign--and then I saw it. There was just a faint triangular outline covered in silt, but it was unmistakable. It was big and whole. As I cleaned off the mud I prayed, "No peel, no peel, no peel, come on baby" And boom! Sweet meg. All the enamel intact. I'm usually all business when I'm down under--every wasted second is a second you could be searching for that six-incher--but I took a break to admire this one. It's a rare and special thing to end the season with a biggun. Incidentally, I also scored a nice 4-incher about 15 minutes later. Here's my top three teeth of the day. Fingertip is 4 1/8", Middle 5 1/8', wrist is about 3 1/2"
  6. Finding Fossilized Shark (Selachimorpha [Selachii]) Teeth On The Shores Of Myrtle Beach, SC: A Definitive, Authoritative, Don't-Deviate-Or-Die Guide By Shane R., a.k.a. "THE master expert of all gurus" Shell-bed - Crushed shells deposited during the high tide transformation to low tide. A proper bed will have NO SAND VISIBLE, ONLY CRUSHED SHELLS!! The ocean's dump... Dump of joy and goodness! This is where you always want to be in some form or another. DO NOT waste time with shell-bedless sand. Bigger pieces of shells in the bed = bigger teeth, less chance of finding squat. Smaller pieces = small teeth but higher chances. Zone 4 - Fine, hot, trash-filled, bone-dry, dredged, behind pretty sea oats sand that's furthest from the ocean (2.25/5 rating & small teeth) Zone 3 - Lumpy, warm, uneven, ever-so-slightly-moist, feet-trodden, gritty sand that's marked by beach scraping machinery tracks (?[unimportant enough that I've never looked]/5 rating & small teeth) Zone 2 - Cool, moist, older-shell-bed-filled, severely foot-trodden, vacationers-set-up-shop-full, smooth sand (3.5/5 rating & small to large teeth) Zone 1 - Very cool, super moist, lightest of waves, fresh-shell-bed filled, heavens-opened-up, stay-here-all-day, smooth-as-a-baby's-rear, where-toothy-addictions-and-backbreaking-obsessions-are-made shore sand (5/5 rating & small to very large teeth) ps. if you can't already tell, this is the zone you want Zone Almost Pointless - Cold, in the "deeper than lightest of waves," impossible-to-see-anything, "that fast wave took my spotted treasure away before I could process," shell-beds so exceptional your feet cut open and bleed, waterery sand (1.75/5 rating & large to extremely large teeth) *Baby Zip bag needed. Leave open the whole time searching. Touch fingers in ocean water, let water drip into bag, fill about 1/4 of bag (the water atoms secure your teeth), hold in one hand between thumb, forefinger, and middle finger (thumb is on right side gripped next to zipper [sharp edge of bag], forefinger nail distance is inside bag, middle finger is above forefinger outside of bag gripped to forefinger nail) while searching. Touch (or drop if you found a big momma) newly acquired teeth to water inside bag until said atoms overtake tooth, securing it in bag. Check continually for low water level and leakages. If found, dip ocean fingers and refill. DO NOT DROP BAG!!!!!! HOLY.. DONT DROP THE BAG. AND.... Don't... be.. tipping the bag either Ahem... Now for that meat. A good mindset to always, always keep is that, chances are, if a shell bed is not actively being eroded at by active waves, any teeth of substantial size have been already taken by another collector. If you aren't actively eye-searching, continually walking, moving around, and searching for the next great eroding shell bed, you ARE wasting precious, valuable time! Look down the beach and head to the next visible bed near the shore! Lots of speed walking is needed! Check to see if waves are or might be close to hitting beds. If so, GET there as fast as possible! Scour the beach with your eyes and be PROACTIVE! Beat the next collector! Be on top of it! If you aren't bent over the whole time, you ARE missing great teeth! R.I.P. Mr. back When you've found a shell-bed near the shore that's actively being eroded by waves, pay super close attention to the area where the sand (closest to ocean) meets the shell bed. This area (and just to the top of bed [furthest from ocean]) is where very large teeth can be found! The middle of the bed is just as good! So check the whole bed!!duh! Make sure the sun is BEHIND YOU and the tooth's enamel should shine like utter diamond from the fresh water on them. Pay SUPER close attention to the bottom of said bed when a wave thoroughly hits it: sometimes teeth come SHOOTING out! The water is naturally sorting this big bed of shells for you! Thank the wind for the eroding waves! Thank the moon for providing the large tide that dropped the shells! The bed that is actively being hit by waves is loooong, as you can see, so don't stay in one place! Pace back and forth the distance of bed where waves are hitting (only where waves are sorting for you)! You are greatly increasing your chances of finding a tooth if you are walking back and forth whilst looking! Pace! Don't stay in one place! Pace! Don't do et . Pace! Scan scan scan! If you aren't actively scanning, you are missing! Active active! Nonstop! This is work since they're valuable to the Gay Dolphin dude! If not trying to fool with tide charts, prepare to be out for at least six hours in order to catch key times. Full moons and new moons are the greatest times to look. Day before and after. Morning. 6:45 am. Nautical twilight time... If there is a storm, GET OUT THERE NOW. Legendary fun awaits. If no shell beds can be found (you're basically fricked...but), bring a short metal shovel, use toes to find an under the sand shell bed, make sure it is close to the ocean, dig large scoops, throw to edge of where water is hitting, let nature erode, search quickly at results. Thank me for this quality, highly treasured, highly secret, authoritative, veteran, insider, seasoned info and data by... Showing me what you find! <3 ~SR
  7. I went to Sherman Texas Post Oak Creek for my second time today to hunt shark teeth. I found a nice variety of fossils and one killer Wilson artifact that is 7,000 - 9,000 yrs old.
  8. Hilton Head trip

    Hey Y'all, I'm coming from Texas to spend spring break in Hilton Head. I've seen lots of references to hunting around Edisto to the north and Savannah to the south. Any good places at or near Hilton Head? I'd love to find shark teeth or pleistocene mammal fossils. Thanks for any help!
  9. Shark teeth ID help

    I found these near Charleston SC and would like to know what type of shark they are from. I will give them to my nephews and let them know the type of shark and some information on each shark. Any information is appreciated. Photos of front and back sides attached.
  10. Shark teeth type?

    Any idea what type this are ? Thanks
  11. I had a pretty decent hunt today . I got there before sunrise and was almost the first one on the beach . here are a few pics of the day . I will add more after I get my new digital microscope working . These pictures are of the only 3 teeth that I have ever found still in one of the big chunks that have fallen .
  12. I got my weekend chores done early today and my wife asked what the tides were like today...after a quick check, we were on our way! You have to love it when the temperature was in the high 70's at the end of October! The water is still warm enough to wade in too, I was kind of shocked to see one lady out hunting for teeth in a bikini, I guess everyone was taking advantage of the unseasonably warm temperatures why they could. We didn't find anything super, the normal stuff for this area. I guess my favorite finds for today were the verts, too bad one was worn and broken.
  13. Shark teeth from Portugal

    Hello everyone, Im back again with more fossils to identify... This time they are shark teeth I received from Filipe Vieira ( @Vieira ) during a blind trade organized on this very forum. The trade went very well, I was extremely pleased with what he gave me. Unfortunately, there are a few of the shark teeth that he couldn't identify. They all come from Sesimbra, Portugal, from which the fossils date to the Miocene period, about 20 million years ago. In case you cannot see it in the photos, they all have small serrations (except for the third tooth). Some of the possibilities: lemon shark (Negaprion brevirostris), bull shark (Carcharinus leucas), Galapagos shark (Carcharinus galapagensis), hammerhead shark (Sphyrnidae), and blue shark (Prionace glauca), etc... If you want individual photos of one of the teeth, feel free to ask me in the comments below! Thank you already for your help, Max
  14. After my first trip to Purse State Park earlier this month I was anxious to get back over there. I knew that I most likely wouldn't have the caliber of finds that I had the last time, but was excited none the less. I got down to the water at 7:30, about 2 hours before low tide. The water was WAY lower than I had expected. I was able to walk to Smith Point with about 25-30 feet of beach between me and the cliffs.
  15. I.d. help on a few teeth

    Hello everyone! I was sorting through some of the teeth the family and I collected over the past year and came across a few I wasn't quite certain about. These were all found at Calvert Cliffs in Maryland. The first looks like it's on part of a jaw. The second I was guessing was a small Mako, but not sure of the species. Third tooth I'm not sure about. Fourth tooth I am hoping is a small meg, but again, not certain. Fifth tooth I'm not sure of. I know the pics aren't great but it does have a small root on the bottom and the tooth has the shape of a tiny chocolate chip. Thank you all in advance. This is a great forum, and all of your knowledge and experience is greatly appreciated!
  16. QUESTION?! GMR..

    Hey guys! Just trying to see if anyone has been to GMR today or in the past few days...?! Or.. if anyone lives close by that can check the water levels of Elm, GMR Park, or 10th street..?! Please and thanks!!!!
  17. The kids got out of school early so I had to take off half a day. On the way home Brownies Beach is about 10 miles out of the way and I had a few hours to kill. The tide was the lowest I had ever seen it, and low tide wasn't until about an hour after I had to leave.
  18. I was lucky enough to get back-to-back trips to the Potomac in some great October weather. I had a lot of fun playing tour guide to my friend and his family yesterday, but I was really looking forward to some solo time with no rushing at all. I had a meeting with my boss at 11:00 to get my performance review and all I kept thinking was, "hurry up, low tide is at 1:30!" I rushed out of there when it was over and was hiking down to the river by 12:15. As soon as I arrived at the beach, I sat down on a log to put my water shoes on and saw this in front of me: I took it as a good sign and I was on my way. The water was crystal clear and the lowest I have seen it since I started coming there, I found myself drawn to the water to look in areas that are usually covered up, but I also wanted to search the areas of the beach that were now dry as a bone. In one little drainage I saw this little tooth: I don't know if you can tell or not but that was under some flowing water, I thought it looked pretty cool. I continued down the beach and ran into another forum member, drobare. He and I chatted for a bit and he looked down and found a small Otodus at his feet. After we went our separate ways, I moved about 20 feet and found another small Otodus in one of his footprints...what are the odds? LOL! I can't say that I had any earth shattering finds, I would say that the crock tooth and turtle shell would be my favorites, but it definitely will go down as ne of my favorite days on the river this year! The total haul: Crocodile teeth (the one on top was a fragment) and soft shell turtle: Now this intrigued me, I think it is bone but I'm not sure...here are some pictures: Other side. Close ups on both sides: Looking at the end. Beautiful day! You definitely have to take advantage of them when you get them! Great meeting you drobare, hope to see you on the water again!
  19. I had the honor of taking a friend that I had not seen in 30 years and his family, shark tooth hunting. He had been monitoring my Facebook posts about all the fun my family was having searching for them and asked if I would guide him and his family. We couldn't have picked a nicer day, mid-70s and sunny...and the river has not cooled enough to make wading uncomfortable, his daughter even decided it was warm enough for a swim! As usual, within seconds of hitting the beach they had their first tooth and a little girl was smiling ear-to-ear! I brought some screens for them and showed them how to use them but as I told them, most of the time you can find just as many by walking slowly and looking. We hit the tide perfect and the water was lower than I have seen it all year, I was itching to strike out and explore but I stayed close since I was the "expert" (term being used extremely loosely!). I wish I would have got some pictures of them collecting, despite driving 3.5 hours to get there, and having to repeat the trip when we were done, they were all smiles the entire time we were out collecting and they had Ziploc bags full of teeth, shells, and sea glass. I think I hooked them because they are already talking about taking their camper to Smallwood State Park and going again. As far as the finds go, nothing too exciting...after seeing WAHAMA90's report from earlier this week, I was amped up to find a paleocarcharodon tooth as well (of course, I'm always hoping for that one). We found the normal bunch of sand tigers and such, but my daughter brought me one tooth that she thought looked different...and sure enough it was. After looking at my ID book, elasmo, and Phatfossils, I believe she found a Pachygaleus Lefevrei (Extinct Hound Shark). Pretty cool find and equally fun researching it this evening when we got home! Our finds for the day...sorry, no cool Calvert Marine Museum ruler for reference! LOL! Pachygaleus Lefevrei
  20. Fossil Celebration Day

    Did anyone attend the Fossil Celebration day in Aurora N.C. This past weekend?!
  21. I have a decent collection of trilobites (Phacops, Elrathia Kingi, Perenopsis) along with a new Eoredlichia that's being shipped directly from China. I also have a large assortment of sharks teeth (Bull, Sand Tiger, Tiger, Snaggletooth) from the Calvert Cliffs Maryland area, a pristine condition Ecphora (Maryland state fossil), a saltwater crocodile tooth, turritella's, quartz horned corals (W New York), porpoise teeth, shark vertebrae, dolphins bones and vertebrae fragments, and numerous other fossils.
  22. I am at Flag Ponds right now. There is a 14mph wind pushing 2 foot waves on the beach about an hour before high tide. I bent over to scoop one of these up and found the other 4 without moving an inch.
  23. I had never been to Purse State Park until this morning. I hadn't planned on even going today but at the last minute I figured that I would give it a try. When I first got to the water there was fog covering the river to the point I could only see about 15-20 feet of the shore. I searched for about 4-5 hours and found right around 300 teeth. Here are a few of my favorites of the day. Can anyone tell me what the tooth on the top left is? I have an idea but don't want to get ahead of myself.
  24. Stratford Hall

    We spent the afternoon at Stratford Hall looking for teeth after the blustery conditions the past couple of days. I learned a lesson, instead of waiing for the best tides, get there as soon as you can because there was a full beach today and some neat finds were discovered...4 megalodons, a 2 1/2+ inch mako, and a beautiful vert. I spent most of my time with a sifter in the wash since the crowds were doing a race track pattern back and forth...my finds were not as impressive, the highlight would have to be either my broken cow shark tooth or the vert. It still was a very enjoyable day to be out and enjoying the cooler temperatures.
  25. It's been a couple of weeks since I have gone out and I was itching to get out and search. We decided to make our first trip to the Calvert Cliffs at Matoaka Cabins/beach today. When we left Fredericksburg, it was windy but didn't seem to be too bad...with dreams of finding a Meg, we made the almost 2 hour trek to Matoaka. When we arrived, the wind was howling and the Chesapeake Bay looked angry, my wife and kids immediately had a concerned look on their face and I quickly suggested hat we turn around and head down to the Calvert Marine Museum to make the best of the day. They quickly agreed and we started to drive back out the road that we just came own a couple of minutes before...well, we weren't going anywhere. In the couple of minutes that we were there, a huge tree had come down blocking the entire road. It was no more than 2 minutes from the time we had driven through here, it kind of freaked us out. We tried to make lemonade out of lemons and spent a couple of hours looking around. We didn't find anything impressive at all, a couple of small teeth, some coral, and some more little things. I'm anxious to get back and spend some real time covering some beach, I stayed pretty close but I now have a healthy respect for the dangers of the cliffs after seeing some of the recent landslides there. I will be back, next time in some waders and boots though...and hopefully not in the middle of a howling wind!
