  1. Hello everyone, I’m a new member and although I did read the guidelines for posting, my apologies if I don’t get everything correct. I found these fossils on the Treasure Coast of Florida in excavated rock from a site approximately 15 miles inland from the coast. I cannot say the depth at which these fossils were specifically recovered but typically the quarries in this area go down to an elevation of about -5.00’ from the existing ground which is around elevation 20.00’ +/- a few feet. I don’t know if this information is helpful or just makes this a lot to read but I appreciate any input or c
  2. Hello all. My first purchase. I'm pretty confident of they're authenticity. But I just want any concern settled. Slight impulse buy as they were in an auction and it almost ended. Tooth #1: Actually has sand still stuck in its crevices and still smells like the sea. This might make it an obvious real specimen but I don't know how far fakers are willing to go. The white striations are a lot more prominent in the pictures. They don't really look like that in person. Polishing compound? Reportedly Otodus Megalodon from South Carolina. Tooth #2: Very little sand
  3. 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!

    Restoring teeth

    Hey! does anyone have any advice for a beginner on how to get decent serrations while restoring megs?
  5. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. Anyone else out
  6. Hi everyone, For a long time, I've wanted to find a Megalodon tooth. I'm from Toronto, where they don't exist. However, I have a trip to the South coming up, where I understand there are some prime locations. It's a trip primarily for business, but I'll have one full day to spend on my Megalodon hunt. I would therefore ideally want to pick a single site. I did my research and my understanding now is that some of the beaches near Charleston, SC are prime. It would be helpful to get some first-hand accounts from you guys, though. The blue area is

    Need help identifying possible shark teeth

    I have just started this new venture in my life and these are what have started it. My great grandmother traveled back and forth from Indiana, Florida and Arizona. So these could have been found in those locations. She always looked for Indian artifacts on her own in her travels. I've had these in a box in storage forever and was looking through them and thought these may be shark teeth, maybe used by Indians. Opinions?
  8. Hello everyone! I have not posted in a while because I have not been on any trips recently. However, I just recently had the opportunity to go on a Fossil collecting tour in a Miocene exposure in VA. I was able to meet the helpful and friendly @SailingAlongToo (thanks to him I was able to learn about this fantastic opportunity). My mom, dad, and best friend spent Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19 collecting fossils along a river. On Saturday, my mom found a killer posterior meg using a kitty litter scooper in a gravel bar after not finding anything for 1.5 hours. I found two crocodile teeth
  9. Hi everyone, I've had a couple people lately asking me how I restored the megalodon tooth I posted about a couple years ago here. I decided to pick out a damaged tooth on Ebay for $15, and take you through it step by step. Here we go! What You'll Need: PaleoBond Sculp Hardener and PaleoBond Sculp Resin (You can substitute with epoxy putty but dries faster and is less malleable) X-Acto Knife Wire brush or any brush with very stiff bristles Any brand of acrylic paint from Hobby Lobby or Michaels (specific colors listed further below) A

    Meg teeth in NC

    Just got back from 7 days of diving in 9 days offshore in Wilmington NC. It was a 2 or 3 day trip dependng on the weather but I kept saying I will stay for one more day. If you really want to go find a lot of teeth that is the way to go. I usually go with WBDiving but they were full for most of the week so I could only go with them two days. I went with JetLag for four days and Carolina Beach SCUBA one day and I can not say a bad thing about any of them. I highly recommend it for experienced deep divers. The vis was 30 feet plus. I thought it was great but everyone else was unimpressed
  11. Added three new teeth in recent times to my collection of exotic meg teeth, I'd like to share since there,s not to many images from these localities out there, the photos maybe in shabby quality because I pulled them directly from my Instagram page to save time. 1) This partial tip of a meg was found in the Chiba prefecture of Japan! Acquiring this, even just a fragment was a real pain in the butt as megs from Japan are extremely scare. 2) Even though its not a Meg of course but still being the closest ancestor, this 3.1inch chubutensis tooth was found at a land site in
  12. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of megs for the US as requested, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on a budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. I estimate I spent no more than $1,100 in total for this small collection. Tag me if there's any teeth you'd like to take a close
  13. Hi everyone, I am looking for some matrix that is the hard kind that won't break or dissolve. I am going to glue teeth to it. I have some 3/4 complete megs that I am willing to trade for it.
  14. Hello all, I recently received some megalodon teeth from Puerto Rico, the other one is ok but this one was found in fragments and held together by tape. I am wondering what will be a good way to repair the fragments for now, would super glue be ok to use or is there something else I should use? Since its from a rare locality I want to stabilize it as best as I can before I decide or not to fully repair it.

    Visiting Summerville SC

    I will be passing through Summerville SC next Wednesday/Thursday and wanted to see if anyone could give me any surface hunting locations I could take my wife and daughter? We have never been to Summerville but the videos and pictures we see would be a dream to find one megalodon tooth. Any information is greatly appreciated.
  16. Hi everyone! I'm fairly new to Beaufort, SC. Recently moved up from FL where I hunted Peace River a lot. I'm hoping to connect with other fossil hunters in the area and maybe gain some local knowledge. I've watched a ton of videos of nice megalodon teeth being found in Summerville/Charleston area land sites, creeks, ditches. What I'm looking for is the possibility of similar sites here in Beaufort County but I don't know enough about local formations to draw any conclusions. I'm not a diver yet so my main focus is on land at the moment. I've hunted the sands at Port Royal with minimal success

    My Megalodon Teeth

    Hey guys it's Anthony. Being a fairly new and inexperienced fossil hunter or collector, my collection is very small, and none of it has been found by myself due to me not having a driver's license yet. Yet I have some nice fossils in my eyes. Here are my two Megalodon teeth I have purchased. The large one is at least 3 inches, and it's condition isn't the best. The root is holey and has poor reservation, the the serrations are dull to the point (ha) where they are non-existent. The tip is dull or slightly chipped, either from erosion, or from feeding. I bought it from the Aurora Fossil Museu

    Megalodon tooth segment measured

    From the album: First Fossil Hunt - Summerville, SC

    Approximately two inches! Impressive... Would have been far more impressive if it were still in one piece.

    Megalodon tooth segment

    From the album: First Fossil Hunt - Summerville, SC

    Pity we were unable to find any more pieces to this monster! This is Toby showing an approximate shape of the original tooth if it were still together.

    Largest Megalodon Teeth Group Photo

    From the album: Megalodon Collection

    I finally got inspired to take a group photo of my bigger C. megalodon teeth. For reference the smallest on the outside are in the 5.7 inch range and the largest two in the middle are 6.6 inches, with the rest being sizes in between.
  21. I have seen many great looking meg teeth from various places, sizes and colors as well as price ranges. So it makes me curious, I have seen a lot of people and dealers talking about the rarity and desirability of certain specific kind of Megtooth, like Bone Valley, Lee Creek, Chilean, etc. I guess Chilean and Aurora Mine one's high prices are due to the rarity and limited supply with no more new materials entering the market. But what about the variety of colors of Megtooth like Red, Larva, Green or I have seen some with multiple colors split on the same root. Is there some kind of general c
  22. I keep trying to post more but do not seem to get to it. Near the end of my dive yesterday I found a spot that was exposed. I could tell I had been there before but a lot of new fossils had been exposed. In the last fifteen minutes I found these four Megalodon teeth. The largest is about 5-1/4". Today I went back and had a better dive than I have had in a long time. I found several Megalodon Teeth including a couple of 5" teeth. There were also a lot of Mako teeth there. The front center one is 3-1/8". I need to try to get back later in the week.
  23. This time of year I usually do just one dive since it gets cold even with a drysuit. Diving when you are cold is not too much fun and I tend to find less if I am cold so I just don't bother. Today I went to an old spot that always has thick mud that I have to dig through. It is usually not worth the time and energy it takes to dig to the fossil layer there but the current was so strong that I figured it would be a good place to go since I could anchor myself into the mud with my feet. Plus it has been awhile and you never know what you will find. Once I started moving around I found an ar
  24. A local Magazine did this article on my Megalodon Tooth dives. Just thought i would share it. http://www.connectsavannah.com/news/article/105350/

    Top Of The Food Chain

    At over 60 feet in length and weighing over 50 tons, C. megalodon was without a doubt one of the largest and most terrifying predators to ever exist. It was literally, The Apex Predator, The Top of the Food Chain. Megalodon sharks lived from about 25 million years ago to around 1.5 million years ago. Megalodons had enormous teeth that grew up to seven inches in length. These razor sharp teeth were used to attack and devour ancient whales. In general, all shark teeth are highly evolved, being perfectly adapted for the shark's prey. Because Megalodon preyed upon whales, t
