    Shark Tooth ID Request

    Hey All, I found this tooth on an early afternoon hunt today in Charleston, SC. I wanted to see if anyone could confirm if it is a Carcharocles angustiden or if it could possibly be a Carcharocles chubutensis. Reason I ask is the cusps on the side seem less pronounced then other Angy’s I have found and seen. They don’t appear to have broken off. My initial thought is that it is an Angy, but wanted to doubles check. Happy to post additional pics if needed. Thanks in advance!

    Vertebra ID

    Hello, I found this vertebra on the beach this morning in Charleston, SC and was hoping someone could help ID it. My initial guess was a dolphin vertebra? Thanks in advance!
  4. I went on a quick hunt this morning. Couldn’t find much at all, only one small tooth, and then stumbled upon this Great White tooth. I have found a lot of teeth in the Charleston, SC area but this is the best Great White I have found to date. I was pretty pumped!

    Potential fossil sites

    I have been doing some Google maps searching for sites that may yield a fossil or two. I found a few sites that look to me to have potential. Fortunately they are close to my house. I put the coordinates into my marine GPS and I am prepared to go take a look. What is your perception of these Google images from a fossil potential perspective?

    Fossil or just a rock?

    Hey all, I was hunting for sharks teeth this morning and found this. Is it a fossil or just a rock? My initial inclination is just a rock, but figured the shape was worth an ask. Thanks in advance!

    Shark Tooth ID

    Hey all, I found this tooth this morning hunting in Charleston, SC. I was hoping someone could help me ID it. Is it Isurus desori? Or is it Isurus hastalis? That was my initial thought, but it is so much bigger, thicker, and robust than the other Isurus desori teeth I have found in Charleston, SC and most Isurus hastalis teeth I have found are more broad/wide. So figured I would run it past some folks here to make sure the ID is correct. Thanks I’m advance!!! @MarcoSr @WhodamanHD @BellamyBlake @Al Dente @Praefectus

    Fossil hunting after rainfall

    Yesterday we had heavy rainfall in Charleston. Rainfall is of course one of the natural elements that erodes the material surrounding fossils. We know that some fossils become exposed to the earths surface due to rain. In Charleston, good areas to search after a hard rain are shores, river edges, creeks, gravel beds, and excavation sites. Dredge piles are also good search areas. There is a particular area on Folly Beach which has a significant amount of dredge material. It would be a good area to search today or tomorrow at low tide. I suggest you search here between 10am and 2pm (low tide). T

    ID Help - 2 Shark Teeth from Charleston SC

    I found these two teeth on a recent fossil hunting trip in the Charleston, SC area. The tooth on the left is 15mm and the tooth on the right is 13mm.
  11. From Myrtle, to Charleston and then from Amelia around to Venice. It was truly a blessed summer strolling the beaches with family, and sometimes by myself. Of the hundreds found, these are my favorites.

    Shark Tooth ID Please

    Hey all, I just got back from a quick shark tooth hunt in Charleston, SC after a day of work and was pretty excited when I stumbled upon this tooth. It is about an inch long.Can someone help me ID it? Parotodus benedini? Alopias grandis? Something else? Happy to post additional pictures if needed. Thanks!!
  13. On Saturday, I made the trip down to Charleston to hunt for fossils on one of several islands in the Charleston area on which the dredge spoils pulled out of the harbor are deposited. I drove down cautiously optimistic, as I knew that there should be fossils to be found, as the harbor cuts down deep enough to hit the right formation. Even then, my expectations were absolutely blown out of the water. The trip was an unmitigated success, as shown by the photo below. The picture above shows my haul for the whole 4 hours I spent picking over the piles and fields of dredge spoils. One th

    Can anyone ID this shark tooth? Found in Charleston, SC.

    Coprolite? Charleston, SC

    Found on a beach I stop by when I’m in Charleston. Not sure if it’s coprolite, but it seems to be my best guess. The conglomeration of odd little chunks doesn’t strike me as anything else, but maybe a very odd sediment deposit or something? The white chunks are bits of oysters/barnacles left on there, don’t think they were original. The main part of the piece is what throws me off. It looks like a giant peach pit or something, all the textures on it are pretty odd. Let me know what you think, I apologize if this is just a mineral or something man made... I always fear po
  16. Hey all, I recently got into hunting for sharks teeth in March when COVID hit. My fiancé’s father gave us an old shadow box over the weekend and I pulled out some of my favorite teeth to display in it from some of my hunts. Before that I just had them in mason jars. All of the teeth were found in Charleston, SC from March - September from 3-4 different spots. I just snapped a couple pictures, but I can provide more if there is interest. As far as organization goes... - Row 1, 2: Megs; Angys - Row 3: Great White teeth - Row 4, 5, 6: C. hastalis; Makos;

    Shark Teeth ID please

    Hey all, Could someone help me ID these two smaller teeth? Both were found in Charleston, South Carolina. Thanks so much!
  18. I finally found a full Meg in Charleston, SC! It isn’t huge (probably about 2.5-3 inches or so), but it was nice to finally find one!
  19. I returned to the Cooper River near Charleston, SC last week for a five day diving trip for the elusive Meg! it is not the easiest way to hunt for fossils but It is fun! I added a new page to my website to give you an idea of what its like. ---> http://nautiloid.net/fossils/sites/charleston/charleston.html

    Carcharodon Plicatilis?

    I have here a tooth from Charleston, SC, a river find. I've narrowed it down to a white shark, and based on this guide I'm torn between Carcharodon Plicatilis and Carcharodon Carcharias. I'm leaning towards the former. Could anyone please provide confirmation?
  21. Hey all, I found these 3 teeth and vertebrae on a hunt this week and was hoping to get an ID on them since I do not recognize them. Any help would be greatly appreciated! If a need to post any other pictures please let me know!
  22. Hey All, I was hoping you all could help me identify these 6 teeth I recently found in Charleston, South Carolina. If I need to post additional pictures of any of the teeth I am happy to! Thanks so much!
  23. Hey all, Since COVID began and I've had more free time I've been getting back to blogging, and now I'm regretting taking such a hiatus since I started here in Charleston. I've written the first of a 2 or 3 part series of semi-technical blog articles that most here should understand and appreciate on our new study on the giant dolphin Ankylorhiza tiedemani (formerly known as Genus Y). The first post is about the background to our paper, and the second one will be a bit more on the anatomy, feeding behavior, locomotion, and evolutionary implications of Ankylorhiza. Take a read here:
  24. Hey everyone, I am new to the forum, but have been searching for and collecting shark teeth for years. I found this tooth earlier today, but didn’t know for sure what kind of shark it was. My first thought was a Great White but it is smaller than some of my other great white teeth I have found or seen. It does have serrated edges. Any help is appreciated and thanks in advance!
  25. Hi everyone, fellow Charlestonian here. I've recently got back into shark teeth hunting and have been to a few locations such as behind the YMCA and in those creek branches round there. I am posting here to ask everyone if they have any good locations they would share. I know this community is tight lipped and secretive when it comes to this, but I was hoping there would be a few individuals who didn't mind helping someone actually find some good finds. I get most sites are on private property or the individual has connections to get onto quarries (i.e. Black River Fossils), but I know there a
