  1. Shark Teeth Identification

    I have several shark teeth from Post Oak Creek in Grayson County, Texas and I was hoping to get help with identification. From what I've read it is the Cretaceous period. Here are some of them. Thank you in advance.
  2. My finds in Cape Town

    During my holiday in South Africa, I found out about a beach called Lagoona Beach where you could find shark teeth. So today I spent about 2 hours hunting for fossils at the beach, and these are my finds. I found loads of chunks of cetacean bones including a large whale vertebra, a partial rib and a massive chunk(that maybe one of you guys could maybe ID). I only found one little shark tooth, I’m guessing it’s a Mako shark tooth. However one of the other collectors there found a Megalodon tooth which I didn’t expect. But overall I’m quite happy with my findings. And South Africa is an amazing place, soon I hope that I can go cage diving with the mighty Great White shark.
  3. Hey, all! I’m planning a trip to England’s Jurassic Coast next summer. I’ve researched areas like Dorset, Charmouth, and Lyme Regis. I plan to hit all these in my time there. Any other recommendations or information I should know? I’m excited to explore the area and collect some new fossils!
  4. Triassic Shark teeth?

    Hi, I'm brand new to the Forum but would appreciate any identification of the attached photo. I've had a look on line and it looks like I have a collection of triassic shark teeth (Lissodus minimus). Found at Aust cliff, South Gloucestershire on Saturday.
  5. Help with more Myrtle Beach Finds

    After going through the last of our fossil finds from our vacation at Myrtle Beach, SC these are the ones we would like help identifying. Thank you!
  6. @Cris and I set out again to some trusty shark tooth hunting sites! For some reason, we both weren't very confident about the potential finds when we left for the site. Gladly, we were proven wrong, and the Fossil Gods blessed us with some grear fossils! But hey, all fossils are great no matter what, right?
  7. Type of Sharks Teeth

    I found these teeth on a North Carolina beach about 25 years ago and was always curious what type they may be. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  8. Hi, stopping at in Greenville for a night on our way to Charleston for vacation. Looking for advice on where to park, stream access, if any part of the stream has more Cretaceous vs. Miocene etc... any tips would be much appreciated. Will be me, my two boys and our dog. Thank you.
  9. Finds from Big Brook in NJ

    Hi, I just got back from Big Brook in NJ and I came back with some things I need people to identify. vertabrae There are three teeth in the same root. attachments.zip
  10. North Carolina Shark Teeth

    I found these two teeth on Kure Beach in North Carolina when I was a kid. I have tried looking at guides online but I haven’t been able to find any that point out distinguishing characteristics of each species, they only show photos. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. What is this shark tooth?

    I have these shark teeth in my collection but I’m not quite sure what the one on the left is. I think it may be Otodus but I’m not sure. Can anyone identify what it may be? Note that the side cusp is broken.
  12. Last week I was on holiday in the Netherlands/Belgium and I found many things! I mainly hunted at the beaches near Cadzand but I was also in the area of Antwerp. There the quality of the shark teeth is much better and you can find more and rarer ones At the sand pit 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. The best method to find something there is to dig a bit and then sieve the material. Here is a picture of the site: The total haul: The better ones: This was one of the best finds: Its about 5 cm long and I think that its an Isurus Hastalis (please correct me if I am wrong ) I like the colors on this one: (3.5 cm) A sweet little Galeocerdo Aduncus tooth: (1.2 cm) And last but not least this was probably my rarest find there: Small but nice Its an upper tooth of Somniosus microcephalus. I already have a lower tooth but thats the first upper for me! I am very happy with it Thanks for watching and I hope you enjoyed my little hunting trip! Of course any ID help is welcome!
  13. @Cris and myself went out to the creek a few days in hopes of finding some fossils! It was HOT, there were bugs everywhere, and thunderstorms all around, but we still had a fun day. The fossil finds were not as plentiful as hoped for, but not every day can be insane! We still had an amazing time and ended up coming home with some cool fossils. Photo of the finds is below if you can't watch the video!
  14. Dear fellow forum goers, These past few weeks have been quite busy, but that has not stopped me from going on the occasional fossil excursion. A few trips went by since my last posting and I decided to let some trips accumulate before posting again. On these trips I interacted with forum members @Woopaul5 and @frankh8147. The most recent trip was today, 08/12/18, and was somewhat productive. Frank found what we believe to be a part of a mosasaur brain case, which will surely be in his "finds of the year list". I was not as luck but ended up scoring a small point fragment and a jaw section of some fish. There were also some nice quality teeth that I found today. Other than this trip, I scored some nice finds on a few other trips throughout the two months. I hope you enjoy the finds, as I enjoyed finding them, and have a nice day. Kind regards, Trevor Overall Finds Stream Worn Shark's Teeth
  15. Bracklesham Bay Queries

    So I’ve been to Bracklesham bay 3 times now and never found a shark tooth or a ray dental plate, this was after hours of searching through the shingle on the beach and across the sand when the tide is out. I’ve heard that conditions for teeth are best after/during scouring conditions but I don’t live close to the beach. Can I go by the the weather being stormy or rainy? Also I’ve heard the fossiliferous beds can be exposed sometimes when the tied is out, is this completely random or connected to ‘scouring conditions’? Any helpful advice relating to best times to go and how to find out when the beds are exposed is greatly appreciated. Also any tips for finding teeth or dental plates? Thanks
  16. Folly Beach Shark Teeth

    Hi! I don’t know much at all about fossils, but I love going to Folly Beach and picking up shark teeth. In a few hours, I can get about 50-100 teeth. I have an idea of the identity of some, but want to be more sure. If anyone has any info on the identity/age/etc., that’d be great! I think my larger tooth is a meg, are megalodon teeth fairly common at Folly? I’ve gone to Summerville to try to look, but had no luck (no idea where to look). Here are some pics (most are not completely whole):
  17. Wilmington, NC

    My friend was telling me the other day that in the Wilmington, NC area, ( I think New Hanover County) They have sand mines where you can find fossils and shark teeth. Does anyone have any information on this, possibly a location?
  18. A set of Carcharocles angustidens teeth has been discovered at Jan Juc, Victoria. This is the first set of Carcharocles teeth ever found in Australia and is one of only three sets ever discovered in the world. https://www.perthnow.com.au/technology/science/australian-fossil-hunter-finds-rare-set-of-mega-shark-teeth-ng-b88923078z
  19. Moroccan Eocene shark teeth

    Hiya I got a bunch of Eocene shark teeth from Khouribga, Morocco and I've tried a tentative ID using the highly scientific tool of Google, but I'd like your opinions. The scale is in centimeters. First photo: Odontaspis sp. (substriata?), anterior to the left, lateral to the right Second photo: Striatolamna sp. (macrota?) Thanks in advance
  20. 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
  21. 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?
  22. 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
  23. 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!
  24. 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!
  25. 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)
