    Megalodon Shark Tooth

    From the album: Robs Fossil Collection

    A 4.25 inch, “Shale Grey" complete megalodon tooth from the USA Miocene Period, Charleston Area, South Carolina, USA. Age:- 10 Million Years Old. Size of Tooth measured on the slant from tip of tooth to root end (L1) = 10.8 cm (4.25 inches) long
  2. These are my top 3 finds ever. I found all of them in a creek in Charleston SC. (Left Megalodon , middle Angustiden, and right Retroflexus)
  3. I just purchased these sold as Megaladon teeth. I see some repairs I think. The big one I think is in almost perfect condition. The others seem small so not sure if they are Megaladon or another shark fossil? Any help is appreciated.
  4. Thanks for any help. I am buying these off of online and the seller has 100 percent pos feed back and the teeth look real to my eye. I am no expert but I don't see anything that raises a red flag. Thanks for any help. Second tooth I bought.

    Fossil or rock?

    Found on Nokomis Beach, FL. Can you help us end our family feud? Awesome old shark teeth...or rocks...or something else? Thanks:)
  6. Where do i go to find the grey clay layer and big teeth. Dont want anything small
  7. Are these from the same or different sharks? Would love an ID and age. Found washed up on beach in Isle of Palms SC Thank you
  8. Same teeth different side. Messed up somehow. Sorry Isle of Palms SC beach find
  9. Good Evening, After one failed attempt of procuring an authentic Megaladon tooth and the money lost, I’m ready to resume attempts of purchasing a genuine specimen. Can you advise on a reputable location, store or website where I can now purchase an authentic megaladon tooth? I am very wary of scams, fake teeth, concrete molds, lead injection, etc. Support appreciated.

    Shark Tooth Prep

    Having finally found my first 3" Meg I was disappointed as it dried and took on a rather shabby look. When I first pulled it up it looked nice, clean and glossy while it was wet. Of course I was also partially blinded by its size. Here is what it looked like after drying a bit the day it was found (next to and earlier find for size/finish comparison): To clean it up I first used a soft bristle toothbrush and plain soap and water. A lot of the brown stain was easily removed with that first round. I then soaked it for 10 minutes in a 75% water 25% vinegar sol
  11. Hi. I was wondering if or how to tell if this Meg tooth is real? It almost sounds like obsidian when I tap it. I have held quite a few teeth, it does feel and sound authentic. The lady I got it from salid there is papers to authenticate it, but cant find it. Thank you!
  12. So, I havent been active for a bit. Other hobbies and life dontcha know. But last night my sons dog decided he would dig around in one of the boxes of fossil stuff I have and pulled out a big zip loc bag of teeth I collected back in the late 90s, early 2000's down in Fla. the phosphate mine would not allow us in the mine (ARGH) but did allow us to collect where they dumped the slurry from processing. Needless to say, the vast majority of the stuff was beat to hell. An occasional gem was found, but mostly broken stuff. Since the dog dragged it out, I went through it and pulled the

    Matoaka Beach, 8/24/19

    Greetings Through this awesome site, I found out about Matoaka Beach Cabins and the opportunity to find fossils there. My family and I stayed here in the Spring to check it out and my son and I camped out over the weekend and spent some solid hours trying to find fossils at this gorgeous spot. We found a bunch of small teeth on the first afternoon by taking shovel fulls of sand and letting the surf wash and sift them, grabbing any teeth that washed out. The morning of the second day presented us with a fairly high tide and we were unable to walk very far up the beac

    Chubutensis or Angustiden

    So I have posted a picture of this tooth before but I was recently showing it to a buddy and he said it looked like a chub but the cusps make me think angustidens. I want to know what you all think. I found this in an area that the formation is exposed in spots. The clay is a thick white clay speckled with tiny pebbles and other fossils. my geological maps that i used to find the location say that it is of Miocene age in the hawthorn group. However I am starting to think that there might be older clays exposed in the area. Please help me figure out what kind of tooth I have here, thank you.
  15. I finally got to do some hunting in the Peace River area of bone valley and just want some help with identifying these teeth.

    A day in Summerville, SC

    First time fossil hunter, and we had a blast! If anyone needs a guide, or just advice, I HIGHLY recommend Barry Segura of Fossil Madness (his company). He was able to point us in the right direction, as well as hook us up with some great equipment. Thank you for everyone on TFF that encouraged and gave me advice!!!
  17. Good morning to all, I will be traveling to Seabrook, South Carolina on Saturday (6/15/19), and have been doing some research regarding potential sites to go shark tooth/fossil hunting. I have been fascinated with fossils and shark teeth my entire life, but never lived in a location to support this hobby. I've read that Summerville, Charleston, and Cooper River (maybe off-shooting creeks), are common spots, but I'd like to have a more calculated game plan than just stopping at random rivers/creeks LOL. After reading through several of the forums here, I understand that some basic a

    Fossil Fish Tooth Identification

    Small. A bit knackered, but not a tooth I have seen. Might just be a well worn sand tiger. Anyone have any guesses to what it bay be and age please ?

    Thoughts? Bite Marks?

    Possible predations? Thoughts?
  21. I figured you guys would enjoy a few pictures of this Funky Pathological Meg I dug up in the Peace River a few weeks ago. It was a nice start to the season for sure!
  22. I took the time to take a couple pictures while out hunting this time so figured I would post up a report The day started off horrible- an hour late leaving my house (and it's a 2 hour drive to the river), colder than expected and somehow I forgot my lucky shovel. I allllllmost turned around and said the heck with it but stopped in Ace hardware, bought a new shovel and got on with it. I decided to launch at a new spot and explore a bit since the day wasn't starting off great and most of my good spots are still under too much water to dig. I had already decided that I

    Second Fossil Hunt in NC

    Yesterday I had a blast at my first organized fossil hunt in Maysville, NC. I am green on what is what but I tried to take good pictures. I found the following: -megaladon tooth -mako teeth -130 total shark teeth -partial horse tooth -puffer fish mouth plate -all kinds of bones -petrified wood -Ray teeth -ray barbs -sawfish teeth -whale tooth (?) -croc teeth -Shells, barnacles, coral -12 shark vertebrae Hopefully next time I will be able to upload images faster.
  25. I will be traveling to Florida 10/26 through 11/1 and planning to attempt to find my first meg. Any advice on charters that have been good or bad, gear rental, better from boat or shore, snorkeling options, etc are much appreciated. Thank for your help!
