  1. It was a very nice day out on the bay. The site I was at exposed both the choptank, and the st. Mary’s formation. I was really hoping to find a large megalodon since there had been a massive storm the other day but that didn’t happen. Oh well, I still stumbled onto some great finds. This beach was pretty much in the middle of nowhere, so there wasn’t a soul to be found here. I was the only one there. It was quite peaceful. Here are the finds: The complete grab: The complete grab flipped: All the better finds:
  2. Recent trips. Weather has been warm, so the water is still warm. Hitting my usual spots, doing well on cowshark teeth (happy! thought the 4th was a broken one but the two pieces don't match up) and finally found a decent, nice (almost 2") mako (been a while). Bunch of non-descript gray shark teeth, skate teeth; fewer angel shark and drum teeth than usual. Peculiar tiger shark(?) tooth; not flat like usual, big almost L-shaped root with a bump/boss at middle (not as pronounced as those bumps/bosses om big sand tiger teeth.
  3. TheCreekendWarrior

    The Creekend Warrior Collection

    Been at it for about a year now and I try to hit the creeks at least twice/month if I can help it. The "loose" pics are either newer finds that haven't made their way into the display yet, or finds that have their own display. Most of these were rescued from the Gainesville area. Some are from the Peace River & Joshua Creek, as well as Manasota, Caspersen, Venice & Fort Clinch beaches. I was also lucky enough to discover a previously unknown spot VERY close to home, while scouting one day! Dr. Hulbert (w/ UF) confirmed it is a new spot, but was reluctant to c
  4. Some of the stuff from recent trips. I have had a great year for cowshark teeth @Fin Lover ! One particular spot has produced the best, some even intact. My "usual" finds are sand tiger teeth; most of these, except the biggest, have sharp cusps. And another spot produced mako/ great white teeth. (Some glitches with my scanner; not the image I had edited(?)) May append another later. Weather has been great, cool in the morning, warm with low humidity in the afternoons. Finally getting some rain (too late for my garden) and washing out some teeth and other stuff. Fishing has been goo
  5. I normally fossil hunt Oct-Mar so my season has started. Launched the kayak out of Chesapeake Beach and began to work down the cliffs. Unfortunately it was far rougher than I had hoped so the kayaking was tough as such I didn’t go as far as I’d have liked. But I made my first and only stop worth it and found a good handful of teeth and a couple nice verts! The biggest makos were 1.40” and 1.20”, the biggest dolphin teeth were 1.20” and 1.03”(my two biggest!). All in all it was a beautiful morning and a great first hunt of the season for me.
  6. A few interesting ones from recent trips (tried to flip and scan each side). Finally found a cowshark symphysial, but like most from the creek, it was broken (fewer but better shape from the beaches? Hopefully not broken from screening.) The pathological tooth I posted last trip (a sand tiger quite bent), along with dolphin tooth and skate scute. No big makos, but a few inch or so. A lot of fossil coral chunks at the spot. Not sure the mammal tooth is ID-able; tips of points missing. I like the jaw bone, not common here. A few angel shark teeth, fairly common here.

    Today's Massive Desori Mako!

    Hello Everyone! It's been a minute since I've had the pleasure of finding any fossils worth posting here, but I was lucky enough today to squeeze in a couple hours of hunting. I noticed several sets of footprints around my usual hunting site - others had picked through the material recently. Undeterred, I made my way along the river visually scouring every square inch of exposed grey-brown Oligocene formation and gravel. Im glad I stuck with it because I was rewarded with several nice (albeit small) teeth from the extinct mega-tooth white shark, Carcharocles angustidens as well as a slew
  8. First of all I will make it clear that I have no idea how to spell some of these names, I tried Google but it didn't understand what I was trying to say, so these are just guesses that sound about right. So my question is what are the different makos (by this I mean modern makos, hastalis, desori, and any others you can name) and how do identify them from each other? Thanks!

    Mako juxtaposition

    From the album: Sharks

    The Mako tooth design hasn't changed much in ~ 30 million years. The left tooth is the modern species I. oxyrinchus, the right one is I. desori (from Charleston, SC, 2 1/8" slant, Oligocene). Some would say that I. desori is the same as the modern species.
  10. ThePhysicist

    Carcharodon hastalis

    From the album: Sharks

    For a while these teeth were called "makos," but we now know these teeth belonged to old white sharks, sharks that were the predecessors of the modern great white.
  11. Made a recent trip to Aurora, North Carolina to fossil hunt the Pungo River formation. These are the Megalodon, Giant White, and Mako teeth I found. Also the last pic shows the nicest tiger and sand tiger shark teeth I found. Not shown are several hundred identifiable whale and dolphins bones of decent quality, including intact vertebrae (atlas, axis, thoracic, lumbar, and caudal all found, some with processes), ribs, jaw bones, flipper bones (carpals and phalanges), sperm whale and dolphin teeth. Also found amber, petrified wood, Trionyx turtle shell, crab claws, and much more.
  12. Mako or Meg fragments? Found in the peace river at brownville park. Ruler and cute bunny(happy Easter!) for size.

    Casey Key, FL Finds

    Took a day trip down to Casey Key, FL near Venice Beach. Found lots of small shark and ray teeth and some really nice shells.
  14. Have made several trips, lots of teeth (mostly small and broken), but have done better than usual on cow shark. Nothing particularly dramatic. A few interesting things will post ater for ID. Generally mostly sand tiger per usual (and a few at top left not clear what they are to me). Not as many with cusps, some sites were gravel and shell bit holes; a long rough history of washing in the sand perhaps. Highlights (second) some verts, bunch of angel shark teeth, lots of drum teeth, a few sand tiger parasymphysials, one pretty just over an inch mako, and three cow shark
  15. Pickings at the beaches are still slim lately (a few coprolite burrows), and I haven't been out as much as I would like. Here are some of my findings from my last four trips or so to the fresh water creek I hunt. There is at least one weird thing that I will probably post in the ID section; not sure it's a fossil, could be part of a leaf or an arthropod, looks fragile. My prizes are a 2"+ mako (blade is in good shape, root is there but rough) and another cow shark tooth (I thought I counted 7 points but not clear in the photo. Several angel shark and drum teeth. A few rough teeth, bon
  16. I have 2 fossil Mako teeth labeled as Carcharodon hastalis in my collection, and I'm now questioning the correct designation for them. The other two classifications I am referring to are: Cosmopolitodus hastalis Isurus hastalis How should I label them correctly?

    Peace River Trip

    Hello All, After being to busy to make it to the peace river for about a year and a half I was finally able to make it onto the river. Certainly the best trip I have been able to manage thus far. A buddy and I hit the river around 7 and didn't get off till 8 at night. The water seemed to be at a decent enough height, although we were only able to find a 2 decent gravel beds, we managed to pull some pretty good finds. My buddy did much better than I did he got the perfect megs. I think Ive got two mammal predator and a
  18. I hit the Potomac yesterday after a long hiatus for some Paleocene sharks teeth. I also decided to include a few of my finds from the recent Stratford hall trip, which was pretty decent. I always go to Douglas point for my Paleocene teeth because it’s just a good area and I almost always come back with a complete otodus. This time, that didn’t happen, though I did find a few broketodus teeth so meh. But I did come back with some good stuff, including a monster croc tooth, and a gigantic goblin sharks tooth. I also got a fish jaw with a lot of teeth in it and some other nice stuff, in addition

    Mako teeth from belgium

    The seller said all teeth are found in Antwerp area in Belgium and is from middle Miocene Epoch. Most of them have a broken root, but I think the root is not the main characteristics of makos. I guess they are the same species?

    Part 2: Chesapeake bay.

    Well, this is the last fossil hunting trip that I will be going on for a while now. 2 more months before I’m able to collect again. The bay has always been nice to me, no complete megs this time around but for what the weather was, it wasn’t terrible. The waves were white caps and I could’ve sworn that my inflatable canoe would have sunk underneath the waves had I made one wrong move that day. I persevered anyways having megs on my my mind but when I pulled up to the beach it wasn’t looking good. Now I’m no meteorologist but I’m pretty sure that 2-3 foot white caps smashing against the cliffs

    Aurora Dig Pit Fossils

    Soooo a few days ago new material was dumped at the Aurora Fossil Museum. Well, I made the trip there before the Saturday crowds, and was well rewarded!!! These were the best finds of the day =p btw the stuff underneath the shark verts are 2 stingray spines, a filefish vert, a burrfish bone, a beat up dolphin jaw bone, and what I think is some type of fish skull cap

    Calvert Cliffs trip 1

    Took my first trip out to Calvert cliffs state park this weekend. Got there as early as I could, which started me at high tide. Beach loaded up with people throughout the day. And from what I saw, nobody else found any teeth. So I consider myself lucky with the hastalis I found. The roots were just barely showing, I think a wave may have just uncovered them. It was a long day round trip from NY but worth it. Also found some scallops.
  24. Wanted to share my finds from a quick shark teeth hunting trip in Florida. Found a very nice Mako, definitely the coolest tooth I've found yet.

    Calvert cliffs

    Recent trip to Calvert cliffs, finally was able to get a boat out on the water after years of planning. Did pretty well, I’m hoping the haul is a little bigger next time because it’s a lot of paddling. Here’s the haul. This is a large whale vertebra I found. All the shark teeth I found at Calvert. The large mako was in a fall and I was hoping it was whole but alas, the time was broke. Oh well. Still a not bad day.
