    Cusps of mega-toothed shark

    We should all agree that the side cusps of these shark gradually disappeared with evolution, but how did they deform in the process of shrinking and disappearing ? Does the cusps’s tip gradually move closer to the middle crown and fuse together? Just like the two teeth in the picture below, is the brown specimen older than the other?

    Carcharocles angustidens

    It’s about 1.875 inches long in the longest side,and the seller said it was found in Chandler Bridge Formation. So I guess it’s angustidens?
  3. Hi all, I wanted to share a couple nice angustidens teeth I found this week hunting in Charleston, SC. Not the biggest, but I love the colors on these two so I wanted to share. Happy hunting everyone!
  4. Hey all I came across these 3 shark teeth today and I believe they're all in the Odontidae family. Even though they all have cusplets, the size of these teeth rule out juvenile O. megalodon teeth so they must belong to a shark earlier than O. megalodon and the question I have is, what species? I can have a couple of guesses after looking at a lot of different photos of O. angustidens, O. chubutensis, O. auriculatus (I'm doubting it's O. sokolovi) teeth though google, through dealers etc but I'm also a little confused because some I'd think are one species and they're labeled as anot

    Megatooth Sharks

    From the album: Sketches

    The meg is from the Miocene in Wrightsville, N.Carolina. The angustidens from the Oligocene in S.Carolina. The obliquus from the Eocene in Qued Zem, Khouribga, Morocco.

    Odd shark tooth

    Hi y'all. Need some help with this tooth I picked up at a local rock shop. At first I thought angustidens, but it seemed different. I'm guessing it came from the Carolinas or at least the East coast. It was associated with other megs, angustidens, and makos that I recognized as having Carolinas-type preservation, maybe Florida. The root is very flat and the crown narrow, making it look more like a mako lateral. It has virtually no bourlette, wrinkling/striations at the foot of the crown, and maybe cusplets judging by the bunching of the serrations. It's a lateral tooth, but looks

    Shark Teeth

    This time I decided to draw some teeth from the group of Megatooth sharks. No point in showing original photos this time, since you all know what they look like. Now that the weather is finally taking a turn for the better, I'll be spending more time in the field again, so it may be a while before I get back to sketching again. And besides, Sara has just arrived and I need to keep her entertained.
  8. I have here four shark teeth, 1" - 1.5" each. They were found in the Southeastern United States. I have no locality more specific than that. I think they're Angustidens or Auriculatus, but I can't really differentiate between these. Could anyone kindly help me identify them? I'd also appreciate if someone can nail the locality down based on the preservation. It's chalky, but the colors of the more orange ones don't really match Bone Valley. Might it be a South Carolina landsite? Thank you, Bellamy 1 2 3
  9. Our favorite South Carolina paleontologist @Boessegot in the news (again) for finding a mega shark nursery. https://www.sciencealert.com/a-24-million-year-old-megashark-nursery-discovered-in-south-carolina
  10. Greetings all. I hope you're ready to give 2020 a good boot in the butt to bring in 2021. I know my foot is locked and loaded. A while back I purchased this shark tooth fossil from an online auction. It was listed as a "great white". Despite the description being wrong, the price was right. I believe that Angustidens are tricky to tell apart from Auriculatus teeth. Since, and if, this is the case, would the color of a tooth, the root in particular, be enough to establish a tooth that is likely from the Suwanee River environs? From a quick web search it seems that teeth that look li

    Shark tooth ID

    Hi guys I have an angustidens tooth (on the left) and a Chubutensis Tooth (on the right) I am finding it hard to separate the 2 as different species as they look very similar, the only difference I notice is the roots are different, are there any key factors to look out for with identifying the 2. Thanks

    First chub tooth

    Hey guys I purchased my first ever Chubutensis tooth a love it! I don’t no a lot about the species and would like to know more, this chub tooth has big side cusp and would like to know if it’s a transition tooth or just how this tooth is as it’s quite large (7cm width 9cm length) thanks
  13. In between this trip report and the last, I have moved from Houston to Columbia, where I am studying biology at the University of South Carolina, so now I have the opportunitiy to take day trips down to Charleston and Summerville to go fossil hunting, which I am very much looking forwards to doing some more of sometime soon. I made my first trip since moving in on Saturday afternoon to a little creek in Summerville I last hit roughly two and a half months ago. You can see the fruits of that particular trip here: Now, I'm pretty satisfied with the results of this trip, but something impo

    Megalodon Evolutionary Set

    I received the final piece needed for my Megalodon evolutionary set today! The hardest tooth to obtain by far was the Carcharocles mugodzharicus, and I would like to thank @MarcoSr for his help with that search as well as the generosity with which he shared knowledge about it. I'll mention that I acknowledge the various debates around species naming and went with the ones I believed to be the best fit. I kindly request that we not get into it on this thread.
  15. Got a pretty decent haul out of Summerville on Tuesday, finally found a creek spot that was halfway decent. Lots of little broken Meg chunks, but the big tooth remains elusive. I did find a nice angustidens, though, which is in excellent shape for a creek tooth of that size. I put the specimens I could use some help identifying in the upper right hand corner of the first picture. I know the top two are mammal teeth of some sort, pretty sure the right one is either horse or camel, but I have no clue about the one on the left. Below them are what I assume is the remains of some sort of coral, an

    Insane S.C. fossil hunt!!!!

    Hi everyone, last Friday I went on a fossil hunting trip in S.C. with palmetto fossil excursions, there was a short hike out to the site, it was a beautiful day with an average temp of 85 degrees!!! when we were walking up to the creek area where we were hunting and we found half of what would have been a beautiful 3 1/2 inch meg tooth!!!! less than 15 minutes after that my brother found a massive blade of a mako, less then 10 feet away from the blade of the mako I found a nearly flawless posterior and several other angustidens including one with insane colors, a worn whale vert, an

    Shark tooth ID

    Hi! So I was browsing for some shark teeth when I came across this bundle of 3 teeth at a very reasonable price. The teeth were listed as being 2 Otodus Obliquus teeth (smaller ones) and 1 Megalodon tooth. Now the supposed Megalodon tooth is obviously not a Meg, as it has cusps (thinking it's either an Angustidens or Auriculatus). I'm also almost certain the two other teeth are not Otodus teeth. Anyone who can safely ID these teeth?
  18. @Gizmo and I had fun day on a stream in eastern Virginia in July. After emergency renovations on my home, I was in bad need of some restorative time in the field. For about two months, the only fossil hunting I got to do was vicariously through the TFF Trip Reports I've been so focused on coprolites and other aspects of collecting that I am behind on prepping teeth and bone. However, thought I'd share some finds as-is. Below are a few highlights: The larger tooth was found in situ in the Calver formation and has some pretty spectacular feeding damage, incl


    Hi I picked up this beauty recently, I think its an Angi but I am no expert and despite reading books on fossil teeth and looking at pictures of others I cannot make my mind up, what is the difference between the Angustidens and Auriculatis, is the Auriculatis more Otodus Obiliquus looking with slight serrations while the Angustidens more Megalodon looking with side cusps ?. It is 2.6" along its longest side if this helps.
