  1. Cabin fever made me stupidly ignore the weatherman (another institution I no longer trust) and head out into the 100% chance of rain and cold. Tried to avoid getting wet, as it WAS cold. Tried a very old spot, and was surprised at the results (the beach where I normally hunt has lost all its sand (?) and I've found no teeth their my last three trips). No rain, Birds were uproariously singing, Spring on the way! The creek was high and icy, saw no aquatic life. Anyway, found a bunch, showing the most interesting. Although big makos are nice (and I like the piebald one better though the 2" b

    Fossil ID Matoaka trip 2

    Hi Again! for Easter this year I decided to go to the Calvert cliffs for some Easter egg fossil hunting. it was a lovely day out got to talk with some nice folks. I wanted to share some of my finds and my IDs of them to check if I got them right before I put labels on them in my collection. 1) Stingray teeth, most likely eagle ray, although the grayish one looks to me like a duck billed ray. 2) Mako Shark Isurus hastalis upper 3) Hemipristis Serra upper 4) Extinct tiger shark Physogaleus contortus 5) Extinct tiger shark Galeocerdo (I think the one

    Cosmopolitodus hastalis - Bite mark?

    I have a 2.96" Cosmopolitodus hastalis from Beaufort County, South Carolina. It has a cut across the root. It looks similar to bite marks I've seen, however those have been on parts of the tooth that make sense like the blade. Is this a bite mark? If so, how would it get on the root? Best, Bellamy

    Bone Valley Makos

    Hi, I have 3 teeth here from Bone Valley, Florida. They appear to be Mako, but I'm not sure if they're Hastalis. Size range is 1" - 2". Could anyone confirm for me? Thank you, Bellamy

    Aurora Shark Tooth ID Help

    Hello. I found this tooth about a year and a half ago in the spoil piles outside the Aurora Fossil Museum. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify it? I think it might be a mako tooth (Isurus oxyrinchus?). Also, does anyone know why one side of the root is much smaller than the other? Is that damage? Or maybe due to jaw position? Thanks for your help.

    Shark Tooth ID - Florida

    Please help ID any of these sharks teeth that were collected from the west coast of Florida (near Venice) this past weekend. Based on my research, the top two rows look like Sand Tiger and the bottom two look like Lemon. Would this be correct or are there any that look out of sorts?

    Shark Tooth ID - Florida (Part 2)

    Please help me ID these shark teeth that were found on the west coast of Florida (near Venice) over the past weekend. My belief is that the top row could be Great White and/or Megalodon (very nice serration on the largest/first one), the second row is either Bull or Dusky, and the third row is Hemipristis (Snaggletooth). As for the fourth row... the jury is still out. I am most intrigued by the third/tiny one (from left to right). It looks different from anything else I have ever found. Very compact, lots of detail, and oddly shaped. Any ideas???
  10. I have here an alleged Carcharodon hastalis from Chile. It is 1.85" long and 1.12" wide. After receiving the tooth, it looked a lot more like Isurus planus to me. The other party insists it's Carcharodon hastalis. At the very least, they insist it comes from Chile. To the best of my knowledge, Isurus planus isn't found in Chile. I've never heard of it anyway. Two questions, then. Is this Hastalis or Planus? And if it is Planus, might it be Chilean? Thank you, Bellamy

    Calvert County Trip

    Took a trip down to Calvert County this past weekend and did some searching around the Matoaka Cabins and just outside of Flag Ponds Park. Think I did pretty well for a two day search!
  12. My daughter had off from "school" Wednesday, so we took advantage of the opportunity and perfect weather to hit the cliffs for a few hours. After several days of rough water and winds, the Bay was calm with a favorable tide and pretty empty of boat traffic as you'd expect on a weekday. Arriving around 11:00 a.m., still a few hours before low tide, we thought we had the place to ourselves. But we soon came across the fresh boot prints of another collector who had already been through looking for the low-hanging fruit at the high tide line. A little disappointed, but undeterred, we went about

    What kinds of makos are these?

    The three shark teeth below are all from the Calvert Cliffs (Miocene) in Maryland. I have the two on the left (A. and B.) tentatively identified as Isurus desori, but I'm still learning my mako IDs, including the differences between true makos and Carcharodon hastalis. Hopefully these are identifiable despite their root conditions. I don't know if the tooth on the right (C.) is identifiable or not. Thanks in advance for any help!
  14. Where do i go to find the grey clay layer and big teeth. Dont want anything small
  15. Got out this week with my kids for several hours on Calvert Cliffs to see what we could find, dodging all the storms. Unfavorable windy conditions and a lot of sand brought in by the tropical storm made for tough searching on the beach, but we had good success working some of the larger fall piles. We're finding that these fall blocks hold a lot of bones that most other casual collectors overlook, even on heavily worked beaches. And we are getting better at spotting them and getting them out (mostly) intact. The big pieces closest to the water and wave action are always eroding out something

    Unknown shark tooth?

    Hi, I found this tooth in South Carolina earlier this summer and was wondering what it was, right now I’m thinking desori or bene(I’m hoping its a benedini, but I don’t know how realistic that is)

    rapp beach hunts

    Too hot to get out much and lots of competition on the beach (or at least footprints). More beach glass than teeth lately. Here's from several trips: Drum and angel (side one): drum and angel, side 2: Shrimp coprolite burrows (evidently those looking for teeth ignore these): Some teeth (rootless mako and sand tiger symphyseal), skate spikes, broken vert:

    Unknown SC tooth

    Hi, I found this tooth in Summerville, SC, and was wondering what you guys thought it was, I thought it was a desori, but I want to make sure. TIA

    Shark Teeth - Maryland

    Hi everyone, I'm buying some shark teeth from someone who hunted a bunch of them in Maryland - I would assume Calvert Cliffs. I'm looking for Isurus oxyrinchus - short-finned mako. Could anyone please confirm if 30 in this image is Isurus oxyrinchus? For reference, each square is 1.5" x 1.5". Also, is anyone able to identify 40? I would say Snaggletooth, but it doesn't appear to be serrated.

    Mostly the crow shark teeth, goblin, mackeral were collected from big brook. Maybe some others but about 25% isnt big brook.

    Mako with cusps in the root?

    Hello fine people! I’m not quite sure who gets the credit for finding this tooth, I saw it from the canoe but was just next to my friends hand when I saw it, they won the coin toss, but I guess I still want to make a fuss about it. It’s real pretty and very sharp, like it must have just fallen out of the clay, but I haven’t seen a Mako with cusp like formations in the root. I know there is tremendous diversity in these type of teeth but I’m curious if this is indicative of a specific species variation, or some kind of pathology, or maybe all the others I find are worn off. Just curious if t

    rapp creek hunting

    Too cold and rainy to fish (no speckled trout yet for me, just out of season rockfish, huge cow nosed rays, and stiffback perch). So went tooth hunting. Unfortunately the kids(?) had dug a giant hole in one of my favored spots, so I ended up hunting one of the kids' favored spots. A hard grayish blue clay area which is usually too hard and unproductive for me, but when walking past I saw a black shiny object glinting in the sun; looking closer I noticed a fine serrated edge and digging around it soon discovered just a shard from a megalodon (which I had never noticed in the creek before).
  23. Hi guys! I went out with one of my kids today to the Calvert Cliffs to see what we could find after the thunderstorms this week. We hit the beach around 9:00 and spent about 4 hours. It was calm with very clear water and favorable tide conditions. We weren't disappointed. We found a bit of eveything--some decent makos, hemis, and tigers, a couple of verts, some turtle shell, croc skin (I think), a mostly complete ecphora, a cookie fragment, some cool bone, and other stuff. We didn't find anything enormous, but we were happy with the variety. Enjoy the pic. If anyone has any idea what the d
  24. I needed something to satisfy my itch since I still cannot get out. So i had purchased a box of matrix from Lee Creek. I spent the weekend seperating the matrix into 4 different sizes. I was excited to try my smaller double decker sifter and it worked perfect. I also used that over a window screen. I found a ton of new items that I do not have in my collection. Including my first croc tooth. It is super tiny but it is my first. These are my finds after my first run through. I think I am going to have to get some type of magnifying glass for the smaller stuff. Any feedback on incorrect
