  1. What is this bigger shark tooth?

    I just moved to FL recently and my dad is visiting from MO. We decided to try to find some sharks teeth so headed to Manasota Key to hunt on the beach. We were there for a few hours and found a bunch of smaller teeth. On the way out I found this larger one but it looks really old and rounded compared to a lot of the black ones I've seen. This is only the 2nd time I've been shark tooth hunting here so I have no idea what I'm doing. Is this a megeladon tooth? Any way to determine the age of this one compared to the black ones?
  2. Matoaka Beach

    Hot one today. More small teeth today.
  3. Shell Creek, Florida

    We are looking for public access to surface hunt on Shell Creek in Florida. We've never been there but we understand that Shell Creek is place for surface hunting.
  4. Please help identify

    Please help identify these shark teeth from an Eocene layer on Conecuh River, Alabama. Are 1-3 the same and 4 different?
  5. ID help- Cretaceous sharks from Alabama

    These two teeth are from Greene Co Alabama, Selma Chalk is the formation according to the seller. I believe one is a Cretalamna and the other might be a Protolamna. I am nowhere near confident in my ID's hence the post here. Any help would be appreciated. The only size reference I have is the gem jar is 1 1/4" so these are small teeth.
  6. ID help- Cretaceous shark teeth from Texas

    I saw this little lot of small teeth and instead of guessing I decided to seek some help on the ID. I do not have a lot of information. They are from the Dallas area, near the airport. The original collector believed it was Woodbine formation. most of the pictures were similar angles as well. My knowledge on Texas sharks is fairly limited. I do think the larger one is Scapanorhynchus. Outside of that, I really have no clue. Any help would be much appreciated.
  7. Fossil finds from today

    Here are my finds from todays shark tooth hunt. I found a lot of teeth today but nothing amazing. I did find a nice dolphin tooth. Sorry for the bad quality photo.
  8. Finally...... Jurassic Sharks !!

    I have not been very active with Fossils on Wheels lately. I took some time off and have been just doing family stuff and working. We did manage to start working on improving our shark education programs though and the first area I wanted to address was our total lack of Jurassic era sharks. We are splitting the 4th grade adaptations into 2 one hour long presentations which allows us to get into some deeper science and introduce more sharks. The big gaping hole was in the Jurassic so I searched pretty hard to find some interesting teeth to add. The first picture is two nice Asteracanthus magnus teeth we picked up. I thought this was a great addition for us. I believe this was one of the larger sharks of that time and the teeth are another example of crushing teeth. I was super happy to add some Cretorectolobrus teeth from the UK. This gives us a chance to point out a modern shark family and introduce the kids to Carpet sharks which become a prominent part of the second presentation. I am pretty excited to see the artwork my son comes up with for these small sharks. Not pictured (the camera on my phone is broken and I am too lazy to get out my Canon), a Sphenodus tooth from Russia. I do not believe these are considered a Cow Shark but they in the order Hexanchiformes so we can at least place the order on the timeline in the Jurassic. Important for us because there is absolutely no way we are finding a Jurassic Cow shark tooth lol It also gives us a chance to talk about deepwater sharks and the adaptations they have. Also not pictured and not in hand yet, are two more additions that put modern shark on the timeline. We are getting a Paracestraction tooth which puts Bullheads on the board and a Spathobatis tooth which will be our earliest representative of the rays. We went from zero Jurassic species to 5 which is as far as we will get for now but I am really happy about these additions. They will really help give us a much more complete program and we can introduce some modern shark orders/families pretty early on in the program.
  9. 6/21/19 Trip haul

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    All the fossils I found in the span of a couple of hours on my first trip to POC. Scale bar = 1 cm. Collected 6/21/19.
  10. Flag Pond

    Only small stuff.
  11. Post Oak Creek ID

    Hey y'all, I went to POC for the first time yesterday and came back with some stuff I need help ID'ing. 1. Shark teeth - Cretodus crassidens? 2. Large shark tooth - Cretoxyrhina? 3. shark tooth - Scapanorhynchus? 4. Enamel/tooth frag - mosasaur? 5. shark tooth - Cretolamna appendiculata? All scale bars = 1 cm. The enamel (4) is < .5 cm in length. 4 is definitely not shark - too thick - and reminds me of crocodiles, but I haven't heard of any crocs there. I also found another mosasaur tooth frag. I know this can be really difficult, so I really appreciate your help!

  20. A day in Summerville, SC

    First time fossil hunter, and we had a blast! If anyone needs a guide, or just advice, I HIGHLY recommend Barry Segura of Fossil Madness (his company). He was able to point us in the right direction, as well as hook us up with some great equipment. Thank you for everyone on TFF that encouraged and gave me advice!!!
  21. Myrtle Beach

    Hi all. Anyone know of or heard about any inland sites to search in the Grand Strand area of SC coast. I know of good sites farther south in Charleston and Summerville and such. Trying to figure out if there are any places to dig and sift right near Myrtle Beach. In looking at a map it seems like there should be some Pleistocene era fossils around but with my limited knowledge I’m not sure where or how deep a layer might be. The Little River is near by but not sure if it’s a candidate. Trying to find somewhere to search besides just the beach. Thanks for any thoughts or ideas.
  22. Are these megaldon?

    Found these hunting for teeth along a beach in Venice FL. They are kind of small, but I thought that could maybe be prosterior teeth? Any opinion is appreciated. Thanks! -HT
  23. I went down to a beach in Venice Fl today (not Venice beach) and found a lot of teeth! I haven’t counted them yet FYI. I have a couple that I think are megs that I will upload pictures for soon. There was great weather as well. Some of the ones I picked up have awesome color.... But anyways, it was a really good trip, and I would like to know if I have any megs here. I will upload two teeth that look like megs to me, but if you guys spot anything in my large picture, please let me know! Thanks! -HT
  24. Good morning to all, I will be traveling to Seabrook, South Carolina on Saturday (6/15/19), and have been doing some research regarding potential sites to go shark tooth/fossil hunting. I have been fascinated with fossils and shark teeth my entire life, but never lived in a location to support this hobby. I've read that Summerville, Charleston, and Cooper River (maybe off-shooting creeks), are common spots, but I'd like to have a more calculated game plan than just stopping at random rivers/creeks LOL. After reading through several of the forums here, I understand that some basic advice would be to utilize google earth or maps, and attempt to locate "dredge spots" in rivers..? Would anyone be willing to help a newbie out with some research 101 type advice? Again, your craft absolutely AMAZES me!!! Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!!!
  25. I was recently reading some studies on extant sharks to see if there was a way we could incorporate a more direct message about extant shark conservation in our future education programs. I was struck by the plight of Angelsharks and decided to make this special animal a featured species in next years programs. We have a great opportunity to bring some awareness to the conservation issues that these sharks face while doing our fossil education programs with Project Angelshark. Carter and I have decided to donate a percentage of each paid education program to the Angelshark Conservation Network in addition to featuring them in the program. We may also do some T-shirts to sell with proceeds going to the same cause. I spent many years working in wildlife conservation and we wanted to work this idea into our programs which is difficult when you are dealing with fossil education. The Angelshark is the perfect critter for us to start with because they extend back to the Jurassic and we should be able to trace their history in the fossil record pretty effectively. Some extant Angelsharks are critically endangered and they are not exactly the public face of shark conservation, even though they could be. They are pretty cute. We can make a small impact on the effort to save them by teaching kids about them. They are found in California and this helps us in our goal of connecting kids to modern species here through fossils. They are a specialized shark with some cool adaptations which makes them perfect for the education program in that sense too. We currently have a possible Squatinadae tooth from the Jurassic and our lone STH Squatina tooth. We need to fill in the blank spaces between the Jurassic and Miocene but I think we can accomplish that over the summer. As a collector, it seems an attainable goal to put together a nice collection of Squatina teeth without breaking the bank. One of our goals in splitting the program into two presentations was to work in more modern shark families and a focus on Angelsharks fits that idea beautifully. We are very proud of this idea and it is something we will repeat going forward. I feel like this is an excellent cause for us to take up and a wonderful chance to help the conservation effort for these sharks. I am pretty excited about this project. It combines some of my favorite things: sharks, fossils, education, and Carter's artwork
