  1. Hello, I posted a front and back pic of two teeth. They are alot larger than the average teeth I have . The smaller one is about 3/4 " . I wondered if anyone could Identify. Also its not very pointed . Thank you ahead . mark
  2. Hi there, I am hoping some experts could help me determine if this tooth is real or not. I did some research and it appears to be a megalodon tooth (possible fake?) from the Pungo River Formation. I found it at a thrift shop and my Fiance was pretty annoyed I would spend so much on a fake tooth. It is odd to find at a thrift shop/red cross so that is why i am asking as well... Curious what you guys think this could be worth if you in fact think it is real.. i measure the longest point from the tip to the root edge at just over 5.5" (its difficult to show this in a picture).

    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
  4. Launch my kayak early this morning and got to the beach a little before sunrise. Hoping off my kayak I took maybe five steps and BOOM my find of the year! A 2 3/4” Squalodon! The sun hadn’t even created the water yet, I couldn’t believe it. I continued on only about 40 feet away from my kayak and I spotted a pretty little Meg tumbling in the wash. By the end of my walk I had found the normal array of teeth with a stunning Hastalis and nice Hemi and dolphin teeth to round out the trip. I’ve had some pretty good hunts this season but this is hands down my best!… So far…. PS: Squalodon whitm
  5. Hi, it's not the first time that I see a whale fossil with megalodon bite marks. This one comes from Coastal Georgia and measures 7.5" With what percentage of certainty can you know that they are really megalodon marks and not random marks. Thanks!

    Shark tooth ID

    While getting together some fossils for the rolling auction I came across this tooth I had bought a few years ago. I dug around on my folder of screenshots I take of fossils listings, so I don't forget what information the seller provides and it was pretty devoid of info. It was sold as a megalodon tooth. No location or any other info...yeah I know that would be handy... I assume but the looks of it, it probably came from the Carolinas or Florida. On to my observations. Seems to be no serrations on it. It looks like a nutrient pore in the center of the root on the lingal sid

    Bone Valley Fossils

    Since last year I’ve been to a commercial Bone Valley fossil operation in Wauchula for the best fossil hunting in Florida. They bring rich dirt from Bone Valley to Wauchula for people to find amazing fossils. The experience is unlike no other, it’s a dry dig, which means you do not get wet, you sift through the material exposing the most beautiful teeth and other fossils that have been preserved more than 2 million years. First 5 photos are some of my personal finds.
  8. Hello all! I am from Michigan but vacationing in Emerald Isle, NC right now. I fossil hunt often in Michigan but North Carolina is brand new for me. I would love to hunt somewhere off the beaten path that is fossil rich either in a creek with gravel, a quarry, or anywhere else that is not super picked over. My main goal is to find a meg but I love finding any fossils really. I am planning a day trip to GMR but if anyone would be willing to share any tips or suggestions for other places (within 2 hours of emerald isle) that are meg tooth hotspots I would greatly appreciate it. If yo
  9. New to this forum having just found it today! Need help ID'ing the attached tooth. It was located North of Austin texas. Never had much opportunity to be in this area, until now. Stumbled (quite literally) on this in the very muddy fringes of a small creek which might help help explain the deterioration. Cant offer much more than that but hopefully someone can provide comments or a resource for reference from the pictures. Appreciate the help! IMG_0184 (2).HEICIMG_0183 (1).HEIC

    Possible Meg teeth?

    I found these two teeth in Florida. They look like they could be Megalodon, but I’m having trouble identifying them. What are your thoughts??

    Peace River again

    Hunting yesterday, found an area of slightly larger teeth....It is not often that one location can yield Hemipristis, Mako, Megalodon and Great White. In the Peace River, GWs are really difficult to find and I am not positive about this one. Is this a GW or a Meg...? It sort of depends on whether you see a bourlette (or not) and how you see the symmetry of the serrations. There were a variety of Tiger (Aduncus, Contortous, Mayumbensis, and Cuvier), but no sand tigers.. Lots of Hemipristis and larger Lemons Also a camel_llama tooth...so

    The Return to the Peace

    So doing a culmination of my last couple trips out - and the fossil gods were benevolent these past trips! Found my first and second bison teeth, a rhino astragalus, a decently sized, very pretty Meg, and a bunch of other things! So without further ado: Starting off with the shark’s teeth - 2.3” Meg, tiny little posterior Meg, and a pathological Carcharhinus tooth: The bison teeth - both 4th premolars, but one is an upper (left), and one is a lower (right): The rhino astragalus: 2 Horse teeth, tapir tooth crown, rodent inc

    Megalodon tooth

    Beautiful Meg tooth with razor sharp serrations.
  14. Hello! I received my first megalodon tooth today and I just wanted to make sure it looks like it’s a real one. The enamel just seems so smooth and shiny, like it was coated with something. Is that just the way these teeth look? Or is it normal for them to be prepared with a coating? Again, I’m totally new to shark teeth and any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Questions about a few teeth

    These are a few of the nicest/most interesting teeth I've found, and I was wondering if anyone knows about the two on the bottom left. I think the one with the red and orange tip is some sort of mako tooth or a similar species, and from what I could find the one beside it with the round profile could be one of the earliest ancestors of white sharks. The top three I believe are all from megalodons, as well as the really short yellow tooth on the bottom. I think that one is a tooth that was growing inside the jaw or something due to its small size compared to the size of the root. The smaller to

    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
  18. Was inquiring to purchasing this tooth but want to make sure this tooth looks 100% natural with no repair and nothing restored on it as claimed by the seller, thanks for the help!
  19. I have a couple places I have been searching. One in a Mangrove Forest, the others in Construction yards. I am finding some nicely colored Sharks teeth, and one was so encrusted with junk it took hours with several types of sand paper to polish. The very dark brown complete one on the bottom left. It is really a beautiful tooth, but I need to polish it further to get the Enamel a bit less opaque. Any methods for polishing by hand? There are other assorted pieces as well, some nice small black teeth from construction sites, the brown and orange are from the Tannins in the M
  20. Hi, is this real? Recently I've bought a megalodon tooth but I didn't get a authenticity document and I have no experience in fossils. Can you help me please? 10-15 mil years, 12.1 cm, Miocene age
  21. Goodday Im considering this nice Indonesian Megalodon Tooth, as I got a few in my collection, im looking for one with an authentic root. Sometimes you see these and spot something off immediately , with the color or shape or the root. This one looks quite good. The sellers says its 100% authentic, with only one small fill in the blade blackside. Any shark experts opinions about it? file.mp4
  22. Hello, I am thinking in purchasing this megalodon tooth. As is on the bigger size of megalodon teeth, I wanted to check if some of you can see some red flags. The seller says it comes from Indonesia and it's not reconstructed or repaired. Thanks!

    Otodus body size to vertebrae

    Recently, after going to my favorite fossil store, I aquired a Otodus Obliquus vertebrae. It came from a formation in Morocco, and is approximately 54 million years old, from the pliocene. Otodus is an extinct mackerel shark, related to the far larger O. Megalodon. The fossil is approximately 10.5 centimeters or 4.13 inches. I was wondering how large the shark would be relative to this vertebrae (assuming this was the largest vertebrae from the shark.)
