  1. Hello everybody So this is a question not directly regarding fossils, but I feel this is nevertheless the right place. Is there any information on how big the teeth of modern great white sharks can get? For Megalodon there is a great amount of information regarding the size of the teeth. But for modern great whites I only find information about the size of the whole shark. I would like to make a small display with my 5.64 inch Meg tooth and a modern great white. I was able to get a 2.4 in modern white shark tooth. But I dont know if this is big or average. Thanks for your help

  4. Baja shark teeth and ?

    I received a handful of shark teeth from an older local gentleman's collection who told me they were from Baja near the Sea of Cortes between Santa Barbara and Lorentz. I assume they are great white teeth, but I'm hoping for a better geological context if possible (age and formation/group ideally, even if just suspected). I've done some research, but haven't turned up much. I saw a reference to the El Cien Fm, but am hoping for some input from others who have far greater knowledge than I do. Along with the teeth came a small chunk of bone that also came from around the same area. Input on what it is or might have come from would also be appreciated. The largest tooth is 2 and 6/16ths in and the smallest is 2 1/16th in. The bone is 3 3/16ths in long and 1 2/16ths in wide.
  5. Need help identifying possible shark teeth

    I have just started this new venture in my life and these are what have started it. My great grandmother traveled back and forth from Indiana, Florida and Arizona. So these could have been found in those locations. She always looked for Indian artifacts on her own in her travels. I've had these in a box in storage forever and was looking through them and thought these may be shark teeth, maybe used by Indians. Opinions?
  6. Another tooth I found at Venice FL. I’m thinking a very worn and beat up great white. I think it has character. What do you think? Thanks! -HT
  7. Running a bit late on this trip report for a trip to some Yorktown Formation sites in Virginia on 4/28/19 with @Gizmo. The water was way colder than we expected, so a two day trip got whittled down to a long one-day trip. After a beautiful, but cold, day on the water we came away with 20+ pounds of fossils and ichnofossils. Below are some highlights. Sorry in advance for using a coin as a reference and for the less than optimal pictures. Teeth are uncleaned, but you can see hints of blue, black marbling and red/copper. Some random shark teeth and mammal teeth. The hemipristis is 2.01". (I am still super stoked about that. My first!) Some great whites and a tiger Whale cervical vertebra Fossil bird bones: Fish jaws: A fossil hypural with a modern day sponge growing on it:
  8. Largest Great White Tooth?

    Hello alll! Ive been a fossil hunter for years and recently dug up this Great White tooth at a site close to where I live here in Cali. Was wondering how big is the largest great white tooth ever found? Thanks.
  9. Hello everyone. It's been a while since I posted a trip report, but I thought I would share my finds from yesterday. The rivers here in eastern North Carolina have been at un-collectible levels for the most part since last September when Hurricane Florence paid us a visit. Well, looking at the levels on the Tar for the last week or so, I saw a golden opportunity to hit the Tar right as the river dropped to a collectible level. And hopefully be the first one there! I had the day off and a fossil Buddy took a half day off of work. We hit a total of about 15 locations, all Rushmere member of the Pliocene Yorktown Formation. The first couple of spots we stopped at were a disappointment. Much of the upper cliff had slumped off and covered the fossil layers. But then things picked up. Here are the amazing finds! Great whites, I found the smaller of these two. My buddy found the larger. It is exactly 3 inches. Mine is a measly 2 1/4. Mine both sides after cleaning A mako I found, kind of beat up but the largest I have found from this area. more to come .................

  11. Hey! I got these fossils for my birthday and I just wanna know if they are real or not? They are classified as fish fossils, Great White teeth, and petrified wood. These are all from my local gem shop which I bought many real fossils from before.
  12. Great White Shark Possibly Killed off Megalodon

  13. Hey! New member here wondering if anyone would be interested in getting a group together for the weekend to do some creek hunting for megs, angies, whites, or other fossils. Message me if you're interested and know the area better than I (I'm from the upstate).
  14. Gmr yesterday

    Went to gmr for a couple hours yesterday, nothing notable except this real nice red great white it pretty good condition. The pictures make it look orange, but it is very red in person.

  16. Best Shark Tooth Finds of 2018!

    Hey TFF members! So big news, I hit 1,000 subscribers on YouTube which was a big goal for me, so I'm happy to have made it! Thanks to everyone who has checked out my videos, it really does mean a lot. I put together a video of some of my favorite shark tooth hunting moments since I started making videos about 6 months ago. This one is full of action, I promise! Give it a watch if you are interested and have some time
  17. Good day to everyone! Thought I’d share some the teeth found on Milnerton and Big Bay beach here in South Africa. Any help identifying would be appreciated - I’m still relatively new so the more worn and broken teeth have me clueless. More pictures to follow!
  18. Hey TFF members! Cris and I got out to explore a brand new site for us recently, and it did not disappoint. This was a scouting trip so we didn't find as much as usual, but we will definitely be going back soon now that we had a chance to figure out the site a bit. This video is pretty eventful, from me wearinf a duck mask and playing a banjo, to Cris buying me a gift, to finding some really cool fossils in an interesting location! Give the video a watch if you're interested and have some time!
  19. Megalodon or Great White Tooth?

    This tooth was found in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It measures to about 1.5 inches. The shape of the tooth was interesting and unlike what I had seen previously, so I asked around and was told it was most likely a tooth from a Megalodon, however I remained skeptical due to its size. I would like to know what animal this tooth came from. Thank you in advance.
  20. Interesting story. https://riverheadlocal.com/2018/12/14/local-teacher-finds-likely-fossilized-shark-tooth-on-baiting-hollow-beach/
  21. serrated mako?

    While collecting teeth I was surprised when what I thought was a ventral mako/ great white tooth had serrations (strong near the base, fine near the middle, nothing at the tip). At first I thought this was a damaged hemipristis, but the shape of the tooth was different and serrations were smaller. The tooth seems to be essentially the same as an unserrated mako/ great white, however the serrations are obvious. Is this a transitional tooth between fossil mako and modern great white? Or does this represent a totally different species?
  22. Shark teeth

    I’m pretty sure the white tooth is a fossilized mako and I think the dark is a juvenile Megalodon or great white. Pretty sure it’s a meg what do you guys think?
  23. rapp beach trip

    While I am eager to check out the creek in the woods, have had some trouble with tick ricketssiae, and also not eager to trudge through swamp. So I paddled over to a nearby beach on the Rappahannock, hoping all the recent flooding had deposited some shark teeth. Mostly I found whale bone (will post after dries), but was rewarded in two hours with five white shark/ mako teeth, a hemi and a few others. Most were weathered but two are nice. Also found a couple of giant tree oyster shells (??: common in the swampy creek) but with strong luster (?). Maybe something similar extant??? The penny for scale is 0.75 inches (19mm) in diameter.
  24. Quick California Hunt

    Was in California for work and hoped to meet up with a friend for an evening hunt after work but he unfortunately couldn’t make it. He was kind enough to map a location where I could possibly find a tooth. I only had about an hour and a half after getting finished with work for the evening and found the location. Access was pretty easy to get to which was nice on my knees which aren’t getting any younger. The area looked promising but having never hunted the area I was not optimistic I would find anything. There were areas that held some scattered broken fossilized mammal bone so I knew I must be in the right area. After looking for almost an hour I found a few fossilized fish verts that were very weathered and not in the best condition but that got me excited. Finally sitting right on the surface I spotted my first tooth. At first glance, I thought I had found a small hastilis but after wiping it off, I could see the serrations and knew I had found my first ever great white! It was small but complete and made my day. I looked some more and found a very worn, broken, sunbleached lemon shark tooth root and then a very broken small great white. As it became time to head back to the hotel, I decided to take the last ten minutes to go a little further down the hill. As I was walking I saw some serrations sticking out of the hill. There wasn’t much and I thought I might have found a nice tiger shark tooth. As I started pulling of the dirt and more of the tooth was exposed, I realized it was large. My hand was shaking as I pulled it out. It was complete and large. My second Great white and a beauty! It measures 2 3/16 inches. I am very thankful to the person who put me on this spot. Great way to end a week of work.
  25. What do you guys think? I thought great white but this root is throwing me off.
