  1. Okay so today I found a tooth that I’m not sure if it’s a Meg or a GW, and then an earbone (I know it’s an ear bone this time! ) that I’m not sure what it’s from. So starting with the shark tooth - the shape and size fits a GW, and the root, while slightly broken, also matches GW. However, it’s got a slight bourlette, which makes me think Meg. But I know that some GW’s have Bourlettes too. @Al Dente Any ideas? Comparison between today’s find (middle) and GW (right) and Meg (left): Now for the earbone. I know it’s mammal and not cetacean… but t
  2. Hey y'all! I'm fairly new to hunting for fossils in Florida. I've done some searching for sharks teeth in Ponte Vedra Beach and Caspersen beach. I've also taken up to looking in some of the rivers and creeks for sharks teeth. Got a couple of the Suwanee River yesterday. I was just wondering if anybody had any tips or tricks in locating some teeth. Like what kind of things am I looking for when it comes to the terrain, sediment, sand, dirt, etc? I have myself a kayak, shovel, and a sifter. Even some general locations within like 2 hours of Jax would be helpful. Cheers
  3. Hey everyone, I have been looking for more Theropod dinosaur teeth, or good marine/reptile teeth. I have the following things i can give back - 5'35 inch Ashepoo Megalodon tooth with rare bite marks. - 4'13 inch Scaldicetus sp. Tooth from Chile - 3'85 inch Megalodon tooth from Belgium. - 1'84 jnch Blue colored 'hubell' meg from May River. For any interest, please private message me.
  4. Hi just wondering what this shell might be that is in the matrix of my Indonesian (Java) Meg tooth. @IsaacTheFossilManmight have an idea?
  5. I have so many frags that can't be identified beyond Otodus sp. because they are missing the corners where a cusp would be. At this stage, I just want to find an identifiable meg, even if it's a frag. I'm not even asking for a whole one (yet)...I don't feel like that's asking too much. Anyway, I found this one today and it is broken and worn, but I don't see a cusp. There is a chip, but not a cusp. Can this be identified or is it still just an indeterminate Otodus sp.? I am including a picture of it with a (worn) angustidens that I found today also, just to show the difference.
  6. Hi Everyone! I'm willing to trade these 2 big boys from my personal collection. I'm looking for Megalodon teeth from more exotic Locations. Chile, Peru, Carribean for example. But also LC aurora and Mehherrin. Always open to other offers too. Tooth 1: Grey 6'05 from SC Small resto done to the lower sides of the restorations. Done professionally. But furthermore natural and practically perfect. Tooth 2: 6'40 coast Meg tooth from NC No restorations done. Almost half a kilo. Absolute monster.

    Megalodon repair

    I need some help. So I have a megalodon tooth that I accidentally dropped and the enamel started flaking off. I had applied some super glue and when I added some, it dripped down. I tried washing it off but it left a white crust and I was thinking about using some acetone but I think it might damage the enamel itself. What can I do.

    Trip for teeth

    Been a little while but made it out to my hole and found some goods. Would love some insight as to what the rib bone?? May be from. Enjoy and thanks for any input!! <;^><

    Potential Beast Tooth

    Found this tooth in a place where all the teeth are whiteish with lightning streaks (acidic). This "tooth" was found where several other teeth were found. E.g.. Megs, GW, and makos. All but a few show signs of sever breakdown. I included an additional pic of more teeth found there for reference. Thoughts??

    Possible chubutensis tooth

    So I have this tooth that I found up in south Carolina earlier this year, it's an amazing tooth as far as color goes, but does have "a small" bit of corner damage. But what I am wandering about it is (as you have seen in the title) I believe it could be a chubutensis tooth. I am no expert on this kind of shark but I noticed that the remaining corner looks to have an extremely small cusp if it is one at all. if somebody can tell please let me know, thank you.
  12. Hey guys! I headed out in Venice, Florida this weekend for the first time ever and went scuba diving for shark teeth. This was my first real trip looking for shark teeth and it was an amazing time. I went for a 3 dive trip but due to weather we only got two of the three dives for the day unfortunately. Although it was cut kinda short I had an amazing trip. I found 7 full Megalodon teeth and 14 frags of Megalodon teeth. My biggest being exactly 4" which I am still ecstatic for finding. I found a handful of other miscellaneous shark teeth and honestly I could of found hundreds and hu

    Megalodon or Chubutensis?

    Recently aquired this tooth. Sold as a Chubutensis, but some thought it was a meg. Can anybody confirm it for me? Found in the clay from May River, Beaufort County.
  14. Hi all. Found my first Florida creek meg!! It's broken but holy cow, the feeling of when I saw it in the screen!!! I'll gladly take it. Went on a fossil hunting tour this past weekend on a creek near the Peace River. Found some awesome other stuff as well. Water was so low!!!

    First tooth outing this year

    Haven't had much time to go out recently but took off Sunday to search some private beaches near the Potomac River. Was worth the trip! Found alot of small teeth over the 2 hours searching with my lovely lady tooth seeker. Started off with a really good giant white shark tooth 2inches long just laying on the beach. Then walking another 20-30 yards I see this weird looking thick rock just offshore. Wasn't planning on getting it but I had the sand Dipper so I scooped up anyway. Was shocked! My first Meg tooth. It's broken off in the top right corner but I'm assuming it's a juvenile Meg? A

    Peace River Visit

    Got back out to the Peace River, FL yesterday. I usually try and get there by 0800 AM but with the cold overnight temperatures this week I delayed my start time until closer to 0900 AM to let the sun rise and warm things up a bit. I was glad I did so as I found the sun high enough to be warming up the spot I had targeted for the day. The morning was mostly a lot of the usual small miscellaneous shark teeth. I did find one small, and I mean small, alligator tooth. A partial small shark vert also turned up. Rounding out the morning were several nice Hemis, upper and lower, a nice size part
  17. One of the newer teeth in my Megalodon tooth collection. I have been collecting Megalodon Teeth for some months. now. The tooth is around 4 8/16 inches big and has some restoration on the root. I love the colors and serrations! Show me your South American megalodon teeth!

    Orlando Shark Teeth Hunting Question

    Hello everyone, This is my first post on the Forum and I am excited to start talking with everyone on here. I know most shark teeth are found around the Peace River system and around South West Florida. My good friend works on a construction site just east of Orlando where they are digging a quite deep retention pond and he got us got permission to try and look for shark teeth in the walls of the site. I know people do this in South West Florida with retention ponds there but I have never heard of people doing it outside of Orlando. Is this worth taking a day to try an

    Juvenile/Baby Meg Tooth?

    Hi everyone! I recently acquired a collection of small fossil shark teeth from Jacksonville, Florida and was looking through all of them in order to identify them. This specific tooth really caught my eye since it didn't really match up with any of the identification resources I was using. From my understanding, megalodon teeth this small are very uncommon as only baby teeth and posterior teeth are this small, but the root, wide broulette, and blade look like they match a megalodon's tooth. Obviously though, this is just wishful thinking. I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me i
  20. *FOSSIL FEST 2022!!* Did you know Coastal South Carolina’s lively prehistoric past makes the Lowcountry a unique mecca for a variety of fossils? They range from sharks' teeth, whale, mastodon, giant sloth, sea urchin and primitive horse fossils! Both amateur collectors and paleontologists will share their unique and intriguing findings at this two-day, family-friendly event--back for the first time since 2015!! The two-day event will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily Saturday, Feb. 26 & Sunday, Feb. 27. Displays of local fossils and even some exotic fossil material will be on-hand
  21. Can someone help identify the tooth in the right? This is the only picture I have. It's my friends find. Thanks guys!
  22. This Indonesian Meg seems a bit too perfect in the root. Am I wrong? thanks for any thoughts he’s saying 6.5” but I would obviously ask for a better measurement than what he sent.
  23. I know the bourlette on a shark tooth is the chevron shaped material between the enamel and the root, but what was it actually? Clearly it is not root or enamel, but did it serve a specific purpose? Was it structural? An attachment point for a ligament? A conduit for nutrients into the tooth? That they seem to be only on mega-toothed shark teeth suggests something related to size? Any theories or ideas?

    Partial posterior meg tooth?

    Hi everyone! just thought I would ask my friends on TFF if they think this is a partial meg tooth, I think it looks like one but I just want to be sure. Thanks in advance! -@fossilhunter21
