    Bradenton Meg hunt

    Hello! new here. I am trying to learn the ropes and have a couple spots. one is a contruction site down in Venice and the other is in up North in Terra Ceia One question is the fossil layer in Manatee County, Bradenton and LWR areas shallow enough for the pits and lakes to get dug to it? i found a place in Terra Ceia that has large chunks of fossil on the beach. Dugong ribs in the mangroves, so far a few broken hemis and small teeth, a tapir tooth and unknown mammal tooth and horse teeth. i assume, possibly wrong, the fossils are being washed in from the shallow h
  4. Hi, I am not an expert, so I decided to ask for help in this forum. My Dream is to buy real fossils so I found a website with some interesting fossils, a keichosaurus and three Megalodon teeth. Can you help me to recognise if they are real fossils or not? thank you very much!

    The Heck am I Doing...?

    I was given this piece by a friend who found it in either Union County or Madison County, Iowa. Gut instinct tells me it might be a Megalodon tooth, but its hard telling not knowing. I am very new to prepping fossils myself, but fortunate enough to have at the least a few of the required tools such as a Chicago pneumatic air scribe, a dremel, and an airbrush sandblaster with aluminum oxide. I have attempted to remove parts of the outer layer covered in rust and shell fragments but have pumped the brakes since I really have no idea if the tooth, assuming thats what it is, will be the same color

    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

    Holden Beach Diversity Of Fossils

    Recently got back from a trip on Holden Beach, and just WOW. Words can't describe the uniqueness of being able to find Mosasaur teeth next to Megalodon teeth. The recent Hurricane brought in many new fossils and I had quite good luck. Here are some photos of the trip, I will post a picture showing all of my best finds shortly, but for now enjoy! First, here are some of the Squalicorax pristodontus teeth I collected. These were relatively common.
  8. Just wondering if you see anything fishy about this small but pretty megalodon tooth. Thanks!
  9. Hi people. So I want to get a meg tooth for my son and I'm a complete novice when it comes to spotting a fake or a tooth that has been restored or polished. I was wondering people's thoughts on this tooth for all the above.
  10. Hi, two weeks ago i found my first meg tooth on a site (Serravalllian) where all the other ones were found with their enamel and a grey or greenish colour. In brown clay. This one is light brown and its enamel seems to have vanished. Except in small parts where it isn't shiny. I found it in a darker brown level that seemed to be Iron rich. When i tried to prep it a bit snapped away and the surface in contact with the tooth appeared dark, shiny. Smoother than the matrix. The matrix that is still on the tooth is very, very hard. I wondered if the lack of enamel is only
  11. Its to my understanding that many Megalodon teeth come with Unfortunate modifications, in order to artificially boost price. My question on thus particular tooth is, does the root look reconstructed, or does it appear to be unmodified? I'll post more pictures if everything checks out.
  12. I will be in Greenville for work at the beginning of November and have decided to head up a day early to try my luck in GMR. After a few hours of research, my initial plan is to drop in at the ball field on Elm Street, heading down current to sift just before the 10th street bridge. It's anyone's guess after that, as I have no experience hunting outside of Florida... although I imagine it is similar in a lot of ways to the creek hunting I'm used to. Equipment will be minimal and I usually prefer to "dig" with my hands to feel the gravel I am collecting, but

    Calvert cliffs

    Went to Calvert cliffs yesterday and it was a perfect day. There wasn’t much wind, and the water was really calm. I only saw one other person out but the beach was pretty much empty. Saw a bald eagle on a tree above I didn’t have my phone on me but it was a really nice sight. I knew that was going to be a good day and it was. I found a megalodon with feeding damage, a really nice 2 and a half inch sperm whale tooth, a nice 1 1/2 inch dolphin tooth, a squalodon tooth, a nice mako, an awesome wahoo jaw, and a bird bone to top it off. It was find after find today, here’s the photos:
  14. Shorter trip report today - but I caught my white whale! Or in this case - blue shark. Finally got a Meg over 3 inches, and it is perfect. Anyway: Megs and Frags: 3 Hemis 1.5” or over and a lower Mako: A pathological, double-tipped bull shark tooth (First ever pathological tooth I think.): And a really pretty piece of turtle shell, chunk of tusk, a tarpon scale, an Equus astragalus, and a tridactyl horse ectocuneiform (pretty sure on that last one, tentative ID):
  15. Hi everyone! I have my eye on a really nice Megalodon. The problem is the seller, who by his own admission is pretty inexperienced with fossils, has no idea if it has any restoration. Now, I could figure it out myself with my UV and some acetone, but the seller doesn't offer returns so I'm conflicted (normally I'd move on but I have a feeling about this one). Figured I'd see if anyone here could spot any funny business. My main concern is a slightly darker area in the upper left root lobe on the lingual side and center of the root on the labial side. Though if it is restored I find
  16. Hey guys! Thought you would like to see what I've been recovering from a site in North Florida. To date I've recovered the associated jawbone, humerus, radio-ulna, vertebra, and upper molar/incisor of a tapir. Today we also found some beast shark teeth and a sick arrowhead. Enjoy the pictures and video!

    Exotic Megs Set Complete

    With the addition of Italy, I'm calling my exotic Megs set complete! There are some really rare ones like Japan and Germany missing, so while I'll keep an eye out for localities I don't yet have, this set is essentially complete after a year of acquiring teeth from around the world and I'm very happy with it! There were some here that were acquired from members, and others yet that members found for me. I thank everyone who contributed in one way or another!

  21. 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.
  22. 5.25 inches, or 13.335 cm; on the longest side. It has belonged to my father, for many years now; and he recently gave it to me. It's a cherished specimen.

    Hi was just wondering if I could get some help, I have a meg tooth with a bourlette that is shiny in the middle and very dull elsewhere, when I put a tiny bit of water on it brings the shine out but always drys back dull, is there anything I can do to keep the full shine with damaging or restoring the tooth, thanks :) see photos below
  24. Hello everyone, happy to have discovered this forum ! I'm french and was in Grand canyon for Holliday's, a week ago and during a hike I found this grey stone among all the red ones. It looks like a tooth by its form and the surface is cracked as old ivory. It is very different from all other stones I saw on the place. Could you help me to identify it with your experienced eyes ? Thank you in advance and have a nice day!
  25. Hey everyone, I have been looking for more Theropod dinosaur teeth, or good marine/reptile teeth.
