  1. Shark teeth

    I just bought 3 shark teeth from the gift shop in our local museum earlier today. No idea where they're from or if they're even fossils. But for $2.16 US each, not really a major issue if they aren't fossils. Tooth 1 is 1.5 inches long x 1.25 inches wide, tooth 2 is 1.75 inches long x 1.5 inches wide & tooth 3 is 1.5 inches long x just shy of 1.5 inches wide. Tooth 2 has a few hairs stuck to the back of the root area, so I guess we could maybe get DNA if they're fake. Each has both front & back views. Looks like you can see part way through the enamel of tooth 1. Go easy on me if I got ripped off for $6.48
  2. PVC sifter

    Hi all I'm going to be making a PVC sifter for shark tooth hunting, my question do I need to use PVC glue on the elbows and Ts?
  3. Hey everyone! I realize I have not been active here for quite some time, but fear not - I have been actively fossil hunting! Cris and I have gotten into the habit of filming our fossil hunts lately, I know you have already seen some of his videos. So I'd like to go ahead and share mine as well! We had an insane shark tooth hunt during Shark Week, the perfect time! We also got a little strange, which you'll see. Link is below! It feels good to be back, and I look forward to posting actively again! https://youtu.be/APjz9FBaSOk
  4. Hello. My son and I are heading to South Carolina to Summerville area and Folly Beach area to search for Shark Teeth. This is a big trip from California for 4 full days and we hope to find some great fossils. This is August 4th-7th. We are doing an excursion on the 4th. But for the next day or two it is quite hard to figure which creeks/rivers are OK to go to which will give us some luck. Any insights? Checked the forums but it has been hard to find exactly where to go. On the last day we head to Folly beach to see what is there. Any insight on what section to start with? I have been following the tide charts. Thank you!
  5. Anyone know what this is?

    Hello! My family and I spent a day hunting around the Summerville, S.C. Area for shark teeth and found some great ones!!! But we need help identifying one fossil we found. It doesn’t appear to be a shark tooth? We’ve never seen anything like it... and ironically our 6-year-old found it!
  6. G'day all, Today I decided to go down for a hunt at Beaumaris with my dad and make good use of the low tide. For those who don't know, the fossils from Beaumaris come from the Beaumaris Sandstone Formation, aged 6.5-4.5 million years ago (late Miocene to early Pliocene) and around 30 minutes from Melbourne. To find the fossils we searched through the shingle on the beach that had been washed up from a phosphatic nodule bed which can only be partially accessed at low tide and is where most of the vertebrate material derives from. Fossils from this site include: Shark and ray teeth, fish jaws and teeth, ceteacen bones and teeth, bird bones, seal bones, terrestrial mammal bones, rare turtle shell, corals, bivalves, gastropods, nautiloids, crustaceans, brachiopods and echinoids. Despite the water being very cold (And falling into the water on my way out of the site) We found many good fossils today, many of them firsts. The Site Tusk Shells (Laevidentalium) Sea Urchins (Lovenia Woodsi) Port Jackson Shark teeth (Heterodontus cainozoicus) Toadfish crushing tooth plates (Diodon) Shark tooth (Shortfin Mako?) Assorted bone fragments (Most likely Cetacean)
  7. Hi all, So after learning of the inaccessibility of the location Lacoste, I was wondering if there was maybe another location nearby. On Fossiel.NET I found the location Carniol, which looks very promising! https://www.fossiel.net/sites/fossil_site.php?plaats=148 Anyone got any tips on how to best find fossils and bring them home? How to look, how to take the fossils out, etc? Any tips or comments would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance, Max

  9. Shell Shocked at Matoaka

    Calvert Cliffs has been a popular place lately and I hesitated to post one more trip report this week, but as I look for other kinds of things, I decided I'd share. I have been told on several occasions that the cabins aren't worth much. All they have are shells. as @WhodamanHD put it, "If you like snails, go to Matoaka." Well, yes. That's why I love it so much. Last year I documented at 50 species of mollusk from one spot on the beach, and that's just what I was able to bring home! I returned to the for Independence Day week. and the cliffs did not disappoint! A landslide so recent that there was no sign yet of rain erosion stretched out into the bay just north of the beach. It's a treacherous place to linger and to traverse, but I was banking on the fact that this part off the cliff had done it's falling for now -- I hoped. In other spots, trees dangled precariously over the cliffs. If you ever doubted that this can fall on you, remember this -- I'm pretty sure that the sound of thunder I herd the night we got in was the landslide I worked all week. It only rumbled once, on a windless, rainless evening. The innumerable fallen trees I had to climb over to get to my favorite spot tell the rest of the ongoing story. If you feel a bit of gravel fall own your head, RUN. You were warned. That said, we all know this is an addiction, so I se too work with a screw driver most of the week, chipping away at the loose material at the base that was sitting in the nice, cool water most of the day. On a blisteringly hot day, there's no place I'd rather be! The fall exposed all kinds of things that most folks think I'm a bit silly to carve out - clams, snails, bryozoa, brachiopods, but I love the biodiversity of the place. I chipped away at big blocks during the day, until it got too hot, the tide too low and the snack supply diminished. I met the wonderfully astute @FossilsAnonymous out there and loved getting to talk to a fellow hunter who didn't think me crazy for chasing after punky sea shells. I wrapped everything in aluminum foil and carried them in a metal pail for the mile or so trek back to the cabin, where I had my make-shift lab set up on the porch. That's where the real work began. The day before we left was blustery after successive storm cells moved in and out the night before. The beach was totally rearranged from wave action. The bay spewed forth all kinds of things. My daughter and I walked the beach to find whatever had washed ashore. I found 3 Ecphora snails sitting on the beach right at the entrance. A little further down, we met another forum member, whose name I cannot find now in my tag options HI! We spoke for about 10 minutes while she and my daughter dove into the lapping waves to grab the shark teeth that washed up at our feet. How they saw them is beyond me, but they must have collected 30 between them while we were standing there! It's taken me a week since I got home to unwrap and clean most of what I brought home. It took me an entire afternoon of diving into half a dozen texts to identify the few shells that were new to me. One I can still only get down to a genus. (see comments!) So far, I've found at least 8 more species of mollusks to add to my count. My daughter brought home great gobs of shark teeth. We even brought back a few big bone shards, one of which I believe is a (rather rare for this section) dugong bone with scratches that might be a predator's bite marks. There is still a big blocks of matrix in the basement waiting to be carefully picked with the old dental and clay tools. There is still a pile of micro matrix to sift through that I carved out of the larger shells as I prepped them. It's been like opening gifts at Christmas. This Christmas may last for a couple very happy months!
  10. Unsure fossil tooth

    So I found this among many others in a ditch in the Miocene area of South Carolina. Of the many things I found were Angustiden, Great White shark teeth, as well as a few verts.. This one has got me stumped, probably due to the fact that it is a smaller one but if had to guess I am thinking Angustiden. Any thoughts?
  11. Shark tooth!

    Hi! I am new to this site and thought it would be a good place to help ID some of the teeth and bone that I have found that I cant say with certainty it one thing or another. So I'll start with what is probably easy for yall. thanks for any help!
  12. Tiny Shark tooth ID please

    Hey! I found this little gem in the Selma Chalk in Starkville, MS. It's super small (1/8") and I have not encountered one like this. Any ideas?
  13. I'm new to the forum. Went to Gainesville twice this week and took my niece for her first time on one of them.
  14. We got out for another dirt road hunt here in Florida the other day which turned out to be pretty successful. We found a few nice little teeth, some with matrix still attached (which I love). It was HOT outside, though! We had to leave the AC and vehicle running, then just hop out anywhere that looked good and shoot right back to the vehicle. It had to be in the 90s, but with the humidity, the heat index definitely made it feel even hotter...We also had a dodge a nasty little thunderstorm which is typical for Florida when it's that hot outside. For those of you who don't want to watch a vid, here's a snap from it showing some of the shark teeth:
  15. Calvert cliffs 6/18

    I decided to try my luck at motoaka cabins today despite it being around 90 degrees. I haven’t been to brownies in a good while. Mostly because it’s always packed and the water is against the cliffs almost all the time in the summer. If I go to brownies it’s in the winter when the tides are lower. I found two things that I never find at matoaka. A huge dead sea turtle and a decent meg. Also found a nice mako. I ended up walking around 4 miles, and I’d say it was worth it. Matoaka I think is somewhat underrated, and if you’re lucky it can produce some good stuff. Probably more quality than quantity, which is okay with me. Thanks for looking, Conor
  16. Got a road trip with my son coming up last week of June (Want to be at the Elon Musk Rocket Launch 6/29 if possible). Starting in Washington DC. I know there are a ton of Fossil spots along the way but I'd really like to add a decent Angustidens tooth to my collection (Something Different than Peace River, Shark Tooth Hill or Big Brook NJ). I won't be diving and don't have room to carry my sifting gear, but I don't mind putting in a full day of hunting. If anyone is interested in meeting up or share a site I'd be grateful. Thanks, Kevin
  17. Found at Myrtle Beach

    Could this be a fossil from a turtle or fish? I found it hunting shark teeth at Myrtle Beach.
  18. Our trip to GMR

    So we finally made it out to GMR to do some hunting. We left Greensboro about 7 am and arrived around 9:15. We walked around for a little bit to scout some areas, and finally found a good starting point. It was slow at first, but we started making really good progress when I found a 2" goblin shark tooth. We continued on throughout most of the day finding tooth, after tooth, after tooth... We found several Meg fragments, some super nice great whites, mako's, 3 mosasaur teeth (the smaller round one might possibly be a crocodile but were not 100% sure), and quite a few belimnites. After we finished for the day we stopped by @powelli1's house so he could check out some of our finds. He's a great guy and has an absolutely amazing fossil collection. When I say he has 15,000 fossils in one room, I'm not exaggerating whatsoever... He helped confirm the ID's of some of our finds, and was kind enough to give us a tour of his collection in the process. After heading home we decided to photograph some of the nicer finds and count everything we brought back. All together we had 944 shark teeth, 3 mosasaur (except if that smaller round one is not a mosasaur tooth), 1 unidentified fish tooth, and 59 belimnites. Here's some photos of everything we found today.
  19. I found what I believe to be a rather interesting specimen in the form of a Megalodon tooth. I have never seen one this color, or, rather, no color at all! Do these come from albino sharks? Just kidding . I was up at my mom's house in St. Leonard helping to dig out some post holes for a new fence construction. After taking a short break, lo and behold this tooth pops up in the dirt pile from our excavations! I couldnt believe my eyes. Her house is a few miles inland from the coast of the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. I thought this was a pretty unique find. For one, its the only tooth ive ever found not at a beach or the cliffs. And two, I've never seen a white or colorless fossilized shark tooth before! Uncommon, in my opinion. I was doing some reading and found that tooth colors of this nature occur when found in areas where there is a lot of groundwater running through. The ground water will leach the sediments and minerals back out of the tooth, leaving it colorless. Pretty interesting. This makes total sense. The area it was found is up on a hill where a lot of rainwater runs off and down a slope, there's got to be a lot of groundwater running through too. This makes my fourth Megalodon tooth found recently! Im so excited! Ive been finding some really cool teeth lately including a beautiful little smaller, cream colored Meg, some nice hastalises, and some of the biggest hemi's ive ever found. I'll have to do another trip report soon! Here are some pictures below of the colorless meg! -Toothman
  20. Need a little help identifying these teeth

    Okay so I found one tooth that I know for a fact is indeed a shark tooth, however, I am still a little skeptical about the second one. It has the right shape and texture to it as well as what appears to be a root line. I also added a photo that compares the broken tips of the two, and the inner portion of them seem to match pretty well, but I am not really sure if it is a tooth or not. I am really looking to identify the first tooth if possible, and confirm or deny that the second is a tooth. These were both found on my last trip to Myrtle Beach in South Carolina.
  21. Post Oak Creek

    I am planning to go to post oak creek sometime this month. Is there any specific tools I should bring? I have done some research and have some ideas of what to bring but I would like some expert advice. Any other things I should know?
  22. We got out for another trip to the dirt roads we hunt with shark teeth and very well preserved invertebrate fossils on them. It was HOT outside until the storms started moving in, with most of the teeth being broken (which is common in this location), but it still makes for a very enjoyable day and occasionally we get a very nice tooth. Here's the vid for those who are interested: Here's some pics of our finds: Calcite crystals growing inside of a broken echinoid. A little lower great white shark tooth. Some of the shark teeth we found. It wasn't the most successful hunt ever, but with the rivers and many of the creeks flooded, it's a great way to still be able to get out and find some stuff. -Cris
  23. Hey everyone! I found this tooth in North Myrtle Beach while vacationing with my family. It washed up during high tide while I was playing with my kids in the surf. I’m interested in what type of shark this may have come from - my own internet searching leads me to think it is a great white tooth, though I’m unsure of the exact species (there seems to be a few different great whites). I want to know all I can find out about this tooth! I was absolutely ecstatic to find this thing, it is far different than all of the other smaller, black teeth I have found over the years. Thanks in advance!
  24. Fossil ID Help

    Hey everyone, I'm new to fossil hunting and I recently took my little brother fossil hunting for the first time. Here are a few fossils that we are unable to identify.
  25. I already posted this hunting trip at the Zandmotor on my last vacation: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/85026-a-beautiful-day-at-the-zandmotor/ I also visited some other locations like a sand pit near Antwerp (Belgium). This was my fourth visit there and probably the most successful until now The Miocene, Pliocene sand was washed up from the extension of Churchill dock and as you can see the area is very overgrown. You can still find there many shark teeth, bones and bivalves. I mainly concentrated on finding shark teeth. Here is picture of the location: This is a picture of my last visit there last year, because my pictures from this visit are all too blurred But the situation didnt change much. I think that the best method to find something there is to dig a bit and sieve the material. Too bad that I destroyed my sieve more or at the beginnig of the day: After that I had to search on the surface but nevertheless I managed to find some cool teeth This was the find of the day: Could this be a tooth of Isurus Hastalis? I am not sure.... Its about 4.6 cm long I was super happy that I could find such a beautiful and big tooth !! Here is my total haul: And here are some more of the better finds: A 4 cm long Isurus Oxynchus:
