  1. I have here four shark teeth, 1" - 1.5" each. They were found in the Southeastern United States. I have no locality more specific than that. I think they're Angustidens or Auriculatus, but I can't really differentiate between these. Could anyone kindly help me identify them? I'd also appreciate if someone can nail the locality down based on the preservation. It's chalky, but the colors of the more orange ones don't really match Bone Valley. Might it be a South Carolina landsite? Thank you, Bellamy 1 2 3

    Extraordinary Common Teeth

    Hey guys, I've been off the radar for awhile .. work you know .. been working on Siggraph for those of you who are familiar with software development. Just wanted to start a new topic here .. This one is right at 3.00" - 7.62cm C. carcharias Bahia Inglesa Formation South of Caldera Provincia Copiapo III Regio de Atacama Chile
  3. A few more Indonesian megs here I’m looking into. I’m mostly concerned about the roots and cementum areas. any major restorations you are seeing? I love the colors of the blades and just want to make sure I’m not getting hosed on anything fake. Thanks so much for all your input and expertise .
  4. Those dark lines sure look odd and the cusps nice and Pointy make me wonder. I’m assuming they’re heavily restored, but was curious about your thoughts. thanks everyone
  5. I have here a Meg tooth, around 6", that has been repaired. No restorations have been declared, but I wanted to make sure there were no red flags. Does there appear to be any restorations on this tooth? Thank you, Bellamy
  6. I stumbled across Livyatan melvillei, a species of sperm whale I've never heard of or seen discussion about. It's surprising to me because it co-existed with Megalodon and some have argued that it preyed on the shark. It had teeth of around a foot-long, with some accounts of even larger. Here's one found on an Australian beach: https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/12/science/foot-long-ancient-tooth-discovered-on-australian-beach.html I've never seen one of these for sale, presumably because they're rare or important to paleontology, perhaps both.

    Megalodon tooth

    From the album: Shark Fossil collection

    Beautiful Meg tooth with razor sharp serrations.
  8. I have here a rarely offered transitional Otodus tooth from Kazakhstan. Note the partial and developing serrations. I believe this is Otodus aksuaticus. It's 1.25" across with no repairs or restorations. There's a missing cusp, just a simple restoration away should you choose to do that. I'll trade it for a range of vertebrate material. I'm especially interested in crocs and sharks from exotic localities, but feel free to surprise me
  9. Hi! For my collection Im looking nice vertebrae, different sizes for comparison.... from whale, sharks..... also looking some nice megalodon with different colors, size... Thanks! In return I offer european fossils.
  10. Hello i got this large megalodon offerd to me I know there are a large number of teeth with restaurations from there. So any advice on this one . The rooth look strange to me Thanks
  11. Recently I have encountered some huge size megalodon tooth but I think the proportion were kind of weird, is it possible to be joined with part of other tooth? attached with 2 samples
  12. I got a megalodon tooth which is clearly restored, but may we get to know which part is restored? I suspect entire root is restored? New in fossil still learning here. I posted some extreme closed up of root, enamel, and serration. Thanks for the analysation in advance.

    They are megalodon teeth ?

    I found these two teeth, and I would like to know if they are small megalodon or angustidens teeth?

    Megalodon

    From the album: Shark Fossil collection

    My biggest Megalodon tooth finding. It's a shame it's broken
  15. I thought I’d share my recent experience with Indonesian megalodon teeth. I couldn’t find much information on them or many who had bought them, so hopefully this post will help the next person. I initially ordered the tooth through a seller from Indonesia on Instagram using PayPal. The pictures where a little grainy but the price seemed too good to pass up. After a month of waiting it did actually show up:

    Cuban Meg

    It has been awhile since I have been on FF and decided I would post this beautiful Cuban Megalodon Tooth I finished cleaning up last week.
  17. I am so very lucky to have a fossil site 15 minutes from my house. I have been hunting it consistently for 7 months since I first found it. Yesterday a few hours before sunset, I walked a back section I had not been to in a few weeks. It had rained hard since, but there were also footprints everywhere. At first I found a few small frags of megs...which is always a good sign but the material in the area did not look as fossil rich as I hoped it would be. I did not find anything else for a while and then on the way back to my car I found a really massive piece of turtle shell about 3” x 2” a
  18. Hey everyone! i was wondering If I could get your opinion on two things with this tooth. 1)does this look like It was found in a BV, golden beach, Etc. location? 2)I had someone suggest that this may be a transitional GW, due to the fact that the serrations are uneven, and get larger, and smaller depending on where you look, even though the serrations don’t seem damaged.

    My Best Megalodon Tooth Yet!

    Hi everyone! This is my first post here on the forum in what feels like forever. I'd like to be active here again, and thought there was no better way to kick it off than showcasing my meg tooth! Some of you may have already seen the tooth on my Instagram, Facebook, or YouTube, but I wanted to make a post on here as well. I found the tooth last week along Calvert Cliffs. It's approximately 4.1" slant height and in near perfect condition. It even has that iconic Calvert Blue color on the crown that I love so much! I've been dreaming about finding a tooth like this ever since I start
  20. Slow day on the beach, not finding much of anything, when right before I turn around to head back I see a perfect 4” Meg sitting in ankle deep water! Total trip maker!
  21. This tooth has popped up on my radar. It is an interesting looking tooth, especially for coming out of Georgia. Anyone seen similar teeth from that area??
  22. Hello all. I was wondering if anyone on here is from (or very familiar with) coastal plain South Carolina. I am not fishing for spots at all, in fact I have a vacation rental on a nice piece of land west of Summerville that I picked and paid for in hopes that we would have fossiling accessible from our home base. We have river access and the land is ripe with creeks. I would like to network with someone knowledgeable about the area to find out if where we are staying might be fossiliferous. This is mostly my teenage son's hobby, but we will definitely hunt as a family. We did hunt
  23. Hello. I finally got around to taking pictures of my collection. It took a while to identify and label everything. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I’ll update this topic as I add new fossils. My first shelf currently has fish and mammal fossils. Weird combination, but I have limited space. I think the Knightia look nice at the top of the bookcase. Pair of Knightia eocaena Diplomystus Sea robin nose bone. I found this while on a Peace River guided tour with Mark R
  24. Heres a fun thread for those to show off their widest and fattest looking megalodon teeth fossils in thier collections. I'll set the tone with the widest fat boy in my collection, I don't have digital calipers but it measure roughly 5.4 inches wide by 6.1 inches long. When I close my hand together it looks even more monstrous. Share yours and join the wide boyclub Got the idea while thinking about what the widest megalodon tooth ever found measures, if anyone does know do share in this thread!
  25. Scientists expected meg teeth to be adapted to large lateral forces but found that when size was removed as a factor, other Megatooth sharks had better tooth shapes for handling the stresses. Done with finite element analysis. https://phys.org/news/2021-01-reveals-teeth-functioned-evolved-giant.html
