    My Collection

    Hi everyone on Fossil Forum, I am pretty new to fossil collection but I have decided to post what I have currently collected and will continue to update this page with new fossils that I acquire over time. I am now looking to acquire rarer teeth now! Details of Specimen: Triceratops Tooth Hell Creek Formation, Carter County, Montana Late Cretaceous Period (65 Million Years Old) Measurements: 1.5 inches long x 3/4 inch wide x5/8 inch thick Weight: 8.9 Grams No restoration at all. all natural specimen. I love the way this looks and its huge!
  2. Ok so I'm a little late on this post. This summer I took a trip up to south Carolina and got some pretty nice finds.First of all I got my largest angustiden, which was a miracle that the pieces were still close together, I found it In a creek surface hunting and found both pieces, which seems nearly impossible.Along with this I got my largest desiri mako.I also got this strange tooth which at first I thought was a sand tiger but 1. I don't find many of those in creeks 2. The root seems pretty flat, not the general V-shape normally found in sand tigers. 3. the blade seems

    Pulled this out of the Gulf of Mexico at Venice, Florida. Looks like a broken large sharks tooth fossil. Hoping someone can help identify it.

    Megladon real or fake

    Hi, my daughter is into gems, fossils crystal. So we have been getting into it too. A few years ago in Canada we came across an antique shop where we bought a Megladon tooth as the owner was a prospector by trade and said he had found it in North Carolina. No certification but looks cool. It is small weighs about 3.3 oz. I was wondering if anyone can tell if it is real or a fake? Thanks for your help!

    Orlando Shark Teeth Hunting Question

    Hello everyone, This is my first post on the Forum and I am excited to start talking with everyone on here. I know most shark teeth are found around the Peace River system and around South West Florida. My good friend works on a construction site just east of Orlando where they are digging a quite deep retention pond and he got us got permission to try and look for shark teeth in the walls of the site. I know people do this in South West Florida with retention ponds there but I have never heard of people doing it outside of Orlando. Is this worth taking a day to try an
  6. Hi Everyone I was hoping someone could help me ID this tooth. Was found on the beach in Cape Town. Thanks in advance

    GREAT WHITE? OR Megladon?

    Found this lastnight and call me a rookie but I can't identify if she's a GW or a Meg tooth for the life of me! Beautiful 1.75in almost mother of pearl color with lighting bolt markings (common for the area I explore). No serrations and the root is higher up on the tooth which makes me think GW right!? But then it looks as if the root which typically dips lower on Meg teeth is missing but at some point in time was there! I don't know and when I Google Lens her it says she's an arrowhead??? Plz end my inner mystery...help lol! Jeez I love this stuff 20210805_071105.heic 20210805_071114.hei

    Possible tooth?

    Found this roadside while taking dogs for a walk. Its a long dirt road going north to south and ends at Hidden Valley Ranch, Luna County New Mexico. It is likely nothing but I found it worthy of asking.

    S.C. shark tooth hunting

    Hi! I was introduced to shark tooth hunting on the beach about 15 years ago by my MIL. It has become my favorite past time while at the beach. We recently purchased a home in Georgetown, SC, and I have heard there are great spots to hunt in Summerville, SC and surrounding areas of Charleston. How do i get started with where to go? I have never searched in creeks or riverbeds, but I would love to spend a day searching. Any maps or advice for me on where to start or go? Thanks!
  12. My son and I were taking advantage of the north westerly winds blowing the water out of the Neuse River and exposing more shoreline. My 7 year old found the lighter colored tooth and I found the darker (black) teeth all within 18” of each other along with the other fossilized bones. May 8th, 2020. I just signed up for this forum and would like to send more photos of the other bones.

    Is this a Dino tooth?

    Please tell me if you think this may be a fossils tooth of a sea creature? It was found at Walton in the Naze UK
  14. Hi everyone, I found this stunning piece online and am very keen to get it as my first real quality piece. My only concern is that is the quality too good to be true? I really do hope it's all it's said to be though! Seller reported no restoration or repairs done. Appreciate any thoughts on this! Thanks in advance! Cheers!
  15. I am new to collecting meg teeth so I hope my question is not “dumb.” Are the tooth cusps on a C. chubutensis vestigial structures from the earlier three pronged tooth like on O. obliquus? I read a physics article about how the megs tooth serration evolves from the smaller prong teeth getting sharks caught on larger prey causing them damage. Did the improved serration as the sharks evolved to be larger lead adult C. megladon adults not having cusps at all? I hope the question makes sense.

    Help with Megladon Teeth ID

    My son received these teeth from an uncle as a gift. Unfortunately we are unable to contact him for any further information about them. Any help with an ID on them or perhaps an estimated value (if that's allowed here) would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and effort! If better pictures are needed please advise. Tooth 1: (first 5 pics) Width=12.7cm and length=16.83cm Tooth 2: (pics 6-9) Width=8.9cm and length=10.8cm Tooth 3: (last 4 pics) Width=5cm and length= 7.62cm

    Petrified wood or something else?

    Found this in the Peace River. In the pictures it looks like a wet piece of wood. It’s definitely fossilized. I’m thinking petrified wood but the color doesn’t look like any prices I’ve seen before? Also, what type of sharks are the last two teeth. I think one of them might be a small meg. If it is, it’s my first meg!!!!

    Anyone Hunting the East Coast?

    Hey guys, just moved to Wilmington NC from Ohio a few weeks ago. I've always loved fossils and metal detecting but I went on my first shark tooth hunt with my wife and found 27 teeth plus a nice great white tooth. I've been hooked ever since. Is there any groups or clubs for fossil hunting in Wilmington?
  20. Hey! New member here wondering if anyone would be interested in getting a group together for the weekend to do some creek hunting for megs, angies, whites, or other fossils. Message me if you're interested and know the area better than I (I'm from the upstate).
  21. Is this tooth real, I bought it from a mineral and fossil shop in Breckenridge Colorado. Would be much appreciated thx!

  23. My wifes birthday is on Monday so trying to surprise her with a 3-4 day weekend trip. Looking for locations in the southeast. Can go as far down as ft. Lauderdale area or top of nc on the north side. We have been to Edisto and Summerville areas before and unfortuantely just havent gotten on top of any good spots. She really wants a whole Meg tooth or nice Angustiden tooth as well, were used to mainly finding fragments in the Savannah area. I wouldnt mind that but would love to add some more bones/and or fragments to our collection as well. I do have a small john boat with a 4 horse outboard th
  24. Hi! I was hoping I could get some advice on my recent finds at Wrightsville Beach, NC. Dredging recently finished and the last few days were awesome! Last year I found a very nice Mastodon and we found 3 items that look very similar but not in great condition. I found 2 very large Megs but they are in bad shape. There are some unknowns that we just can't identify and was hoping for TFF's expertise. I can attach more pics of other angles but just going to attach the bare minimum right now.
  25. Hello everyone! His is my first post on here. My name is Hayley and I’m located in Daytona Beach, Florida. The past two weekends, we made trips to Brownville and Wauchula Florida to hunt the Peace River. On the 18, we found a small meg tooth on the last scoop of the day, along with lots of other teeth and bone fragments. On yesterday’s trip, I found some larger teeth and a completely in-tact (what looked to be a sand dollar) at the last place we stopped at. I will post a picture of it tomorrow because it’s sittig on my desk at work. Anyway, it’s really enjoyable and the conditions are very fav
