  1. Hunting in Georgia, US?

    Hello everybody, how’s everybody doing? I am planning on flying out to the lovely state of Georgia in December and I would like to know what my options are regarding fossil hunting/ mineral collecting. I plan on flying into Atlanta, then driving to Macon. A day or two will be spent fishing on the Coast most likely around Savannah so I’ll try shark tooth hunting for sure. Nothing has been permanently decided as of yet except fishing. Now I know there is shark teeth on the Coast as I already mentioned but I know there’s maybe trilobites somewhere and that there’s certain places with garnet sand. I also know that the water level in the rivers out there get higher in the winter if I remember correctly. Will that stop me from being able to hunt for teeth and/or trilobites? It would be most appreciated if anybody could PM me with some rough locations or formations for me to research. Also any tips on beach collecting would be great as I haven’t tried it yet. Thanks!
  2. Big brook trip

    Hi. Thought I would share my two trip experience/finds to big brook. I live about an hour away so I get to go as much as I want during the week. I went last Thursday and this past Monday. Thursday was not good at all. I got a flat tire and ended up changing my tire in the BB parking lot. I had just enough time to find one shark tooth because it was getting dark. I went back this Monday to redeem myself. Here are my findings: i know top left is a vertebrae I thought I might of had something good but then the dried out and they all look like snarge row 1 is gobblin row 2-3 are crow I believe kaupi row 4 is mackerel but not sure which species row5 I have no clue haha row 6 sand tiger I believe this is a fish tooth or claw. Not sure Any corrections to my IDs would be much appreciated. Thank you! Also if anyone is interested in going to BB during the week it would be great to have company. I can be there from10-1 Monday through Friday. Just need about a week notice. PM if anyone is interested
  3. Had the chance to return to Big Brook, NJ with the family to search for cretaceous-era fossils. I am new to fossil hunting (this was my second time!) and had some interesting finds this trip - it is so much fun to learn about the prehistoric life in this area. It was a lovely day, although the brook was a little on the cold side. I would appreciate some help with identifying these 9 fossils: My best guesses are: 1) Mackerel/porbeagle shark (Cretolamna appendiculata) 2) Fish vertebra (is it possible to figure out the species?) 3) Unsure about this one, also Cretolamna? 4) Brachiopod (Choristothyris plicata) 5) Salmonoid (Enchodus petrosus) 6) Mackerel/porbeagle shark (Cretolamna appendiculata) 7) Goblin shark (Scapanorhynchus texanus?) 8) Sand tiger shark (Carcharias) 9) Crow shark (Squalicorax kaupi) Happy to provide more pictures if it would be helpful. Also, I found what looked like a bone (in the center of the below picture), but ended up throwing it back in the brook, believing it to be a concretion. Can anyone confirm that it's probably a concretion? Just want to make sure I didn't discard something like a Dryptosaurus phalanx in my search for shark teeth!
  4. Few hours at Flag Pond, MD

    Spent a few hours at Flag Pond today. The weather was great.
  5. My last fossil hunt in England

    Things have been really hectic over the last month in preparation (and actual event) of our international move. We left England on 27 September and stayed in Denver, CO for a week. We are now in Cheyenne, WY for the next 4 years. Before we left England I wanted to go on one last fossil hunt, and it was one of the best trips ever! On 23 Sept I set out for the beach at Bawdsey. It’s a mostly flint pebble beach with exposures of London Clay. It’s supposed to be good for shark teeth and it did not disappoint! Previously, I’ve only found up to 2 shark teeth at any location and that was on a miracle day. This day I found 10 and a quarter (that still counts, right?)! I found a few flint belemnites, or so they would appear. A lot of fossilized bone (the first I’ve ever found!). And some really pretty and sparkly chunks of pyrite. There is also a ton of pyritized wood, and some of the best preserved I’ve seen but I didn’t take any. Every time I found a shark tooth I would squeal with excitement. I’m glad I had the beach to myself for the 3 hours because I sounded like a kid finding hidden Easter eggs. Needless to say it was an amazing fossil day. I already miss England so much and wish I were back.
  6. I've always wanted to find some fossil shark teeth but never knew what to look for or where to go. After some research, I made a sieve and headed out to the hills of North Canterbury, New Zealand, to have a fossick around. The formation is about 60myo and is famous for the giant penguin and bird fossils that have been found in the vicinity. The first two hours were a bust as I sifted through some debris at likely looking sites, I did get a bit excited about a piece of bone I found which I think is from a rabbit on closer inspection. As I was filling the last bucket, I spotted a white dot in the cliff... my first shark tooth! It was about 1cm long, tiny but still a shark tooth! After switching to eyeballing instead of sifting, I found two more! One smaller and one larger shark tooth, the larger one showing a bit of damage but good details. All in all, I really enjoyed being out and actually finding a fossil shark tooth. If anyone can point me in the right direction to figure out what species it could be, please let me know! Or if you have some tips on finding shark teeth more efficiently, I'd love to hear about them. I made a 10min video of the day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kwqRWARWJk I've included some photos I took that day. Thanks for reading!
  7. Shark teeth ID help

    These where found on the beach in St. Pete’s FL. Having trouble IDing them. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  8. HELP!

    I’m from Jersey and I like to go fossil hunting around here but I’m looking to find bigger and more interesting teeth. The teeth I find here bar biggest an inch and it’s rare to find one that big. I’m going on a trip out to South Carolina. Anyone have any tips or any places I can use to go to To find bigger teeth?
  9. Last week, we had the opportunity to visit the eastern parts of North Carolina guided by a local resident (my brother!!). A great time was had by all. Scenery is spectacular!!!!. We not only relaxed on the beach but we went shelling and fished. Wildlife was everywhere. From wild horses on the barrier islands to the birds. The dolphins were my favorite. I was hoping that the hurricane which recently brought large waves to the beach, may have brought in some fossils too. Such was not the case. So our group of one fossil hunter (me) and three novices that were neutral on looking for fossils set off to an inland site that I had researched prior to a earlier visit last year. When I was at this site previously, I came up with a goose egg, and it was NOT a fossil. So my expectations were pretty low. The site was along the Neuse River as seen in this picture. Most of our finds were in amongst the reeds and tree stumps. I think the beach area had been picked clean by other visitors.

    I found less stuff than last time, but I found a nice centrum and a shard of a mosasaur tooth. A couple teeth grouped with Scapanorynchus may be Serratolamna sp.
  12. Shark Teeth from FL

    I have been using this website to help educate myself and identify theses teeth. I believe all teeth on the right of the penny are the sameness; Lemon Shark. I also believe that all the teeth are the same to the left of the penny. My initial thought was Copper Shark. After going through this website I was thinking Thresher Shark. Any help or confirmation with thes would be much appreciated. This is the link https://www.floridamuseum.ufl.edu/discover-fish/sharks/fossil/shark-tooth-id-guide/#q23

  15. Shark Teeth ID. Carcharhinus

    Hi. Me again. I feel like I post something everyday asking for help. I really have learned so much from everyone here the past month. So a big thank you. So I believe based on research and past post that the first group of teeth are bull shark because the location of the nutrient pore on the lingual side is below the bulge in the root. The second picture I believe is also carcharhinus but not bull because instead of a nutrient pore on the lingual side there is a transverse groove. So that leads me to the question what type of carcharhinus has a transverse groove? I hope on the right path in my thinking. Boy I hope so or this post will be embarrassing. Haha. Thank as always for any feedback! Mark
  16. My friend joined me for a weekend of black water diving. She found a couple massive heart-breaker megalodon teeth her very fist time! Perfect conditions all weekend long made it a great time on the water.

  18. Fossil hunting in Antwerp, Belgium

    Hello all, I'm on my first trip abroad and in Belgium at the moment. Going to be heading to Brussels tomorrow but have been researching the possibility of going to Antwerp to search for fossils. I understand people don't like to share private fossil hunting areas but could anyone point me in the right direction in Antwerp? I've attached what I found on fossiel.net but just want to check is this enough to get by or will I end up hopelessly lost? Any advice would be massively appreciated. Thanks Ollie

  21. Holly smoke! now I know why I should have listened to my teachers when I was in school. I am so far over my head in this fossil and rock thing that my eyes hurt thinking about it. I do mostly river hunting here in VA. and until I came across this site my life was normal, now I'm not sure about anything. It seems now I have more questions than answers. Walking the banks of the James river looking for arrowheads I always seem to come home with more different looking rocks than I do arrowheads. Picking up rocks that look like they may be arrowheads but are not got me to wondering. One question is, is there a fossil hunting for dummies thingy anywhere? One of my sons likes to look for shark teeth and I go with him some times to walk the river banks. One of my questions is, do all real shark teeth look like the pretty little black and grey colored things he always brings back or could a tooth be completely turned to stone like river rock you see along the bank of a stream. Also is it possible to find a tooth in a sediment layer, like so called mud rock that is shaped exactly like those pretty ones that everybody else finds but is just a blob of the same material that its encased in? I was digging a couple buckets of of that sediment layer to use for planting material when I noticed something strange looking in the soil. It was getting dark and we had to leave to get back. A day or two later when I dumped out one of the buckets I noticed bone fragments and what looked to be parts of some kind of vertebrae. Out of the three buckets I collected there was over a bucket full of these bone like pieces and a lot of pieces that had the shape of teeth but were just a mass of the grey sediment looking material. Hopefully I will get to go back to the site later to find out what I have destroyed and to see what else may be there.......but more carefully this time I promise. I'm going to try and get some pics of some of the things but my camera battery is dead and I have to get a new one. When I do post pictures it will be in the fossil ID page.
  22. Sand tiger shark teeth ID confirmation

    Found these on the NJ beach this summer. Just looking for confirmation that I ID them correctly. Thank you in advance for any feedback.
  23. Hello from Virginia

    I have always loved history and old things from the past. I have been a Civil War relic hunter on and off for 40 years or so. I don't get to do that much anymore because pretty much all the land I used to hunt has been bought up by the Government or the Civil War preservation people and you can no longer hunt there. A couple of my old hunting buddies got me into Native American point hunting along the banks of the James and Pamunkey rivers and for awhile that was fun but all they wanted to do was hunt the same spot over and over looking for that perfect point. We would hit a bank and everybody would take off walking the shore line and most of the time when they got back I was still right in the same spot scratching along the bank with a bag full of rocks, not many points but a lot of rocks that looked like arrowheads, to me anyway. Every now and then they would come back with that perfect point and the bragging would begin and they would always give me a hard time about my bag full of rocks. After awhile I had collected a pretty good sized rock pile and decided to make me a rock garden in front of my shop. While moving all those rocks to their final home I began to notice some strange markings on some of them and after looking closer I noticed how much some of the sharper pointed rocks looked like teeth from some kind of animal or fish. I had found shark teeth before walking the banks of creeks and streams but most were tiny little things, some of these I was finding were much larger and looked like regular rock rather than the normal looking shark teeth we more commonly found. When I would try to explain my thoughts they would laugh and just tell me to, 'drink another beer, and you will think more clearly in the morning'. LOL I then decided I'd find me a new hobby but ever time I walked by that rock garden I would always see something different than I had saw the last time I looked. One day on an outing with my oldest son I dug up this rock that really looked weird it was covered with mud but I could tell there was something different about it so I threw it in my bucket. Yeah, I'll admit I am hooked as I no longer carry that little bag tied to my belt loop I now carry along a couple 5 gallon buckets. Besides, that little bag would get so heavy it was hard for me to keep my pants up. Anyway, when I got home and dumped out my buckets on the ground so I could wash off some of the mud and as soon as I sprayed that one funny looking rock with the hose this shape of what looked like a snake popped out like a neon sign. Once clean I could tell that the rock was a sedimentary type rock by the layers that it showed. There were some dark layers and in-between were some white layers. Anyway, the top of the rock that had the white rocks on it looked like it had been carved away to make the shape of a snake. Boy!! I really got laughed at when I let the boys know what I thought I had found. They decided there was no amount of beer that would ever make me normal. In my limited knowledge about fossils I knew that when a fossil forms only the bone or more solid parts of animal would fossilize and become rock so I knew, or I thought I knew that the whole snake would not be presented the way this one was. So I decided that some poor Indian one day stumbled onto this rock and a light bulb went off in his head and he said to himself, "you know Tonto, you haven't given the little lady back at the Tee Pee a present in a long time. Maybe I'll sketch up a picture of a snake on this rock and give it to her for her birthday. Then she can replace that awful looking picture of her mother she has hanging on the Tee Pee wall. Old Tonto was always thinking of ways to keep the peace back at camp. Sadly, he probably should have been paying more attention to his surroundings cause along came a big ol bear and he jumped out of the woods just as Tonto was putting the finishing touches on his masterpiece and ate him in one big bite. Thankfully, the bear spit out that rock right there on the edge of the bank before he headed off back to high country. I'm going to post a pic of this rock for you guys to take a look at and hopefully someone can tell me if my thoughts are anywhere near something that could be possible.
