    Shark tooth frag

    I understand that there is too little of this tooth to identify, but my husband is just so desperate to hear that one little word (meg!) that he thinks I'm just too lazy to ask. So, let me see if my assumptions here are correct (still new and learning). Found on Folly Beach (South Carolina) yesterday which I believe means it could be Oligocene to Pleistocene. So, possibly angustiden, chub, subauriculatus (I've also found auriculatus, so I'm not sure which is correct), or meg. Based on the curve, I would guess that it would be at least 3 inches if whole, which I don't think rules any of those o

    The color differences!

    Went to Goose Creek, South Carolina yesterday for the first time. Found my largest frags ever and first non-marine tooth, but nothing like what most of you find. However, after having only found the black or gray & black teeth from the beaches, I was amazed at the color difference. Picture of beach finds vs. Goose Creek area finds.

    Fossil in beach rock

    I found this rock on Folly Beach yesterday and know even less about these sorts of fossils than I do about shark's teeth. Can someone please tell me what this is? There are 3 of them in the rock, but the other one was harder to photograph. Thanks!

    Help with small shark tooth

    I am working on learning to identify the shark teeth we've collected at the beach the last few months and am finding it difficult on some of the smaller ones (though none of them are really big). Especially when the book says lack of serrations is a big identifier for a specific shark, but then says that some of the teeth may have serrations anyways (just a general example). Anyway, the root of this tooth is shaped a lot differently than the others. Not sure if maybe some of the features are worn off, but it seems very smooth and consistent (not broken off). Very rectangular and large for the

    Help a noob

    Hi, all, I am new (I posted on the member intro, if you want to know why I'm asking what will be a very easy question for most of you). I'm learning to identify shark teeth with the help of a book that was recommended, as well as this forum, and a few sites. This tooth is confusing me, as it doesn't look like any of the options I've seen. I have a few guesses, but can anyone help me out? Found at either Edisto or Folly Beach in SC. Large serrations on one side and very small (and worn) serrations on the other side. Very big bulge where the nutrient groove is. Thank you so much!

    Tooth on Folly Beach, SC

    Hello - I am wondering if anyone would be able to help identify this tooth that I found on Folly Beach about 2 years ago? Thank you in advance.

    Folly Beach after the storm

    Down here on vacation and decided to try Folly Beach early yesterday morning while the kids slept. We had rough surf from the storm and thought maybe it would kick up some interesting stuff. I spent two hours combing the beach and didn’t find a single tooth. Not even a tiny one. Lots of modern day shells washed up so I picked up just a few. The only fossils I find were some unidentifiable bone fragments. Many people were looking for teeth, and a few that I spoke to also didn’t find any teeth. My family and I are down here for a little while longer and I’d love to venture out and t

    Driftwood Beach Mammal Fossil

    What is this fossil? Chapstick for scale. Found on Rat Island Park in Folly Beach, SC.
  11. I found this dome shaped piece of bone on folly beach South Carolina. Have looked through tons of reference photos and haven’t been able to come up with anything. Thank you for any input.
  12. So I find lots of equus teeth on my beach and lots of partials. This appears to be one of those but it sort of looks like a whole tooth not a fragment. Is it just equus? Thanks for your help!

    South Carolina Beach Sifting

    Hi, I understand SC is pretty strict with using implements to dig around on state lands, like creeks. However, does anyone know how this applies to public beaches? I would like to hunt Folly. Can I dig into the sand with a shovel to sift through with my sieve? If not, can I use my hand to load up the sieve? I'm questioning whether a sieve can be used at al.
  14. Hi my name is Elias and I am new to the Forum! About a week ago I found a large piece of what looked to be fossilized bone, on Folly Beach SC. Upon further examination I noticed that it seemed to have a solid light gray center surrounded by a ring of bone. Further research has led me to believe this may be a chunk of Mastadon tusk, however the specimen is so beaten up it is hard to identify any Schreger lines. I am much more experienced in Cambrian and Ordovician fossils, and have just recently begun exploring fossils of the Pleistocene Epoch. I would appreciate any help on identifying

    Possibly a jaw with teeth

    I found this fossil while hunting on the beaches of South Carolina. I am not sure what it is. Thanks
  16. Hi, I just got back from a family trip to folly Beach and found my first sharks teeth. I looked for hours, finding nothing and then found 6 in 5 minutes, followed by hours of nothing. I am very excited and thankful for the ones I found, but is this common? I also need help with ID from the experts. Thank you so much.

    Identify this fossil, please

    Found this collection recently near Morris Lighthouse. Had a very knowledgeable person with me but he couldn’t identify this one. Any help? thanks, shotscot

    Folly Beach, SC

    Well, folly Beach worked out much better than Edisto Beach for fossils. Almost no one was hunting fossils...almost. One lady had 48 very small teeth. Spent several hours pacing the Surfline watching for them to be uncovered. Fossil bone fragments were very common and not hard to find at all. The south side of the island was the best for bones frags, but teeth seemed to be anywhere in the surf according to the tooth lady. She had a running bet as to who had to buy dinner with two other people hunting teeth closer to the pier. There was a fair abundance of nice specimen modern shells to b
  19. Today I went for my first "serious" (ahum) shark teeth hunt. Over the last few weeks I was keeping my eyes open while walking the beaches of Sullivans Island and Isle of Palms with my wife, but today it was "game on". Left the house at 8:00AM and drove to Folly Beach as I had been reading that of the beaches closes to me that was the best to look for teeth. Weather was nasty, cold and windy. Tide was still high but outgoing. Hardly anybody on the beach. Spent approximately 3 hours without finding anything. I was mainly looking in the accumulations of shells, seaweed, rocks, pottery higher

    Folly Beach Finds

    Hey guys! Just a few things I found on Folly, i’m not too knowledgeable. Think I got a puffer fish & stingray mouth/dental plate. If anyone can ID and give an approximate age of what’s in the pic, that’d be cool. Pic attached.

    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):
  22. 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 foll
