  1. For whatever reason, I find these as interesting as a pristine specimen. Perhaps because the tooth was actually used, like stamp collectors like cancellation marks? How about you? Do you have any interesting photos of feeding damaged teeth (of any species) to share?
  2. C.carcharius lower found on Topsail Island, NC. Approximately 2.5 cm slant height (juvenile?) Appears to have cusplets. Why?
  3. Shark Teeth ID Help?

    Hi. These are a little worn down. They are all about an inch long. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks! Mark
  4. Tiger Shark Teeth?

    Can anyone help ID these two shark teeth. I inherited my Grandfathers collection and I am trying to group them into shark type. I believe these are all tiger shark teeth. If you anyone can take a quick glance and confirm that would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance for any comments. Mark
  5. Lemon shark tooth

    From the album Galveston Fossils

    Lemon shark tooth found on Galveston Island, TX. It's about 1.5 cm tall.
  6. I have been researching why my specimens of H.serra teeth from Topsail Island and Lee Creek look different. Apparently, H.serra from the early Oligocene are smaller, less robust, and have finer serrations compared to later, Miocene H.serra teeth. Is my conclusion accurate? The H.serra from Topsail Island are supposedly from the River Bend Formation. There is conflicting information on the internet about the age of this formation. Some sources say "early" or "lower" Oligocene, some say "middle-late" Oligocene. Which is correct? If "early" is correct, when was it formed? Closer to 33 mya or more recent? For H.serra found in North Carolina, what is the range in age? Oligocene-Miocene /33.9-5.3 mya? Is it possible to narrow down that range more accurately?
  7. Two shark teeth.

    The first tooth is truly tiny, infact I'm not entirely convinced it's a shark tooth due to it's size. So perhaps a very small species or a juvenile? The tooth easily fits inside the 0.5cm divisions on my cutting board, and every time I take it out of its container i'm terrified of loosing it. It was found by sieving the sand at Bracklesham bay, and would have come from the Eocene Bracklesham formation. The next tooth is from the Cretaceous chalk of Bedfordshire, not sure if it's the Lower or Upper chalk formations but I assume it's from the lower chalk. It was in a pile of rocks next to a footpath, There was a short cliff nearby but i'm sure the pile was made by a farmer taking larger rocks out of the field next to the path. Anyway I have no clue as to what genus or species these are but I was hoping there would be some shark tooth experts on here who would know. Thankyou.
  8. Another trip to purse park

    Nice day for hunting. I took a co-worker with on this short search. These are his finds.
  9. Shark Tooth Storage

    Hi. Only 2-3 days into the forum. I have spent a lot of time reading and its making me rethink how I store my shark teeth. I have about 800 teeth stored glass jars; 1 jar for FL beach teeth; 1 jar for NJ Beach teeth; 1 for big brook teeth in NJ. I was thinking of separating all the teeth by type for each area by using a nuts and bolts storage bin. Anyone use something like this? Thank you for any thoughts or comments in advance! Mark
  10. Fossil ID (Shark Tooth)

    I look for teeth on the beach all the time and I found this one this summer. It the 3rd one of this type I found this summer. Is this a Bull Shark? Sorry for my fingers. Couldn't get the picture to focus on paper. Thank you in advance for any feedback. Mark
  11. Fossil ID (Shark Tooth)

  13. Fossil ID 3 (Shark Tooth)

    I went to shark river in NJ and found this in the middle of the creak with my sifter. It was 6-10 inches under dirt and rocks. Why is it still white? I was a little surprised. Would love some feedback on this. Thank you in advance for any comments. Mark
  14. Fossil ID 2 (Shark Tooth)

    Hi. I just got back into shark teeth collecting. Use to do it with my grandfather in Florida when I was much younger. I posted on tooth earlier. This is other one that I needed help with. Have no idea what type it is. Its a little over an inch from top to bottom. Any thoughts. Thank you in advance for any comments. Mark

  16. Myrtle Beach Trip

    Hi Everyone! Hope everyone is having a great day. A couple things, so my family and I are taking a trip to Myrtle Beach the last week of August and I would really like to do some fossil hunting while I'm down there to get a break from the Devonian up here in NY. So I have a couple questions. 1. I know that the obvious choice here is shark tooth hunting on the beach, which I definitely plan on doing, I bought a really nice snorkeling mask to do a little bit of searching in the water itself. My question is what is the best method of searching for shark teeth on the beach, and what should I be looking for in order to find the teeth? I know there's the sifting method which I will definitely implement, but I would just like to know what I am looking for, is there a section of the beach that generally has them more frequently when tides are low, just some helpful tips, hoping to nab a Meg tooth, but I know my odds are low. 2. Beyond just shark tooth hunting, I would like to go inland and do some searching as well, so are there any rivers, streams, creeks, etc. within an hour of the Myrtle Beach area where I could do some hunting as well? Any fossils at all would be very cool to bring back from the area so I just want to make sure I have the best chances of finding something worth bringing back. Thanks, Hittingthebeds
  17. Lee Creek shark tooth ID

    Lee Creek NC spoils pile find. I suspect it is a juvenile C. megalodon upper-posterior, but the asymmetry is throwing me off. Am I on the right track or way off?
  18. Galveston Haul August 2019

    From the album Galveston Fossils

    Over three days, I found a few beach treasures. I found a couple of ray plates ( the "v" shaped one is from an eagle ray), a pufferfish/parrotfish mouth plate, three shark teeth, and a couple of bones likely from a turtle. Scale bar = 1 cm.

  21. 7/30/19 Trip Haul

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    Shark teeth, mastodon enamel, and vertebrae found in POC on 7/30/19. Found more teeth than last two trips combined! Unfortunately, I didn't find any ptychodus or cretoxyrhina. Scale bar = 1 cm.
  22. Please help identify some Big Brook finds!

    I took a trip to Big Brook in Monmouth County, NJ yesterday and found some things that I need help identifying. Any help would be appreciated! Pic #1: Possibly sea urchin spines?
  23. Shark Tooth?

    I found this today on the bank of Penn's Creek, in a location that is called "Fossil Rock", or "Pulpit Rock" in Weichert, PA. I've found other sharks teeth in my life, but never any in the mountains. (I usually find brachiopods in my front yard, about 20 minutes away from where I found this.). The front looks like a shark tooth, but the back just looks like rock to me, or maybe a chip of bone or something. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
  24. Fossil

    Anyone know what this might be? I found it in a creek known for aquatic fossils in northern Texas/ Texoma area but I can’t identify at all. Claw, tooth, tusk,...? The black part is hollow
