  1. Hey all, quick question. I am currently in school in the Harrisburg, PA region and am limited in trying to stay under an hour and a half drives for spots. I noticed some posts about shark teeth in the Potomac river but most of what I could find was that these sites are more near the D.C. area. I was wondering if anyone here knew if all of the Potomac had fossils to find or if it is strictly along certain areas of erosion off of the cliffs that the Potomac cuts through? I think either way over the summer I am going to try to end up at the Aquia formation but was wondering if I coul
  2. I figured that while we are on a show me your sharkteeth kick, why not show some of our specail sandtiger teeth The poor sandtiger hardly gets any press, but they can still be a nice addition to any collection. Here is my absolute favorite. It is another Brownies beach special. When I found it in the surf it was a dark black/grey color. But when it dried out I got a blue/tan mottled blade with a brown root. Also the root is kind of oversized for the blade. It has some wicked cusps as well.
  3. Tuesday this week (1/19/2021) I headed over to Big Brook Preserve after reading up on it on this forum and other sites. Made for a cold day in the water but ran across some other fossil hunters (both locals and out of staters like me.) I found a few neat teeth, mainly a few goblin shark teeth, as well as some crow shark teeth, and of course belemnites. Nothing spectacular compared to some posts but defiantly made my week! The locals were finding teeth up by the Boundary Rd. access (that is where I found mine) and I was finding tons of belemnites down by the Hillsdale Rd. entrance.
  4. I'm a newbie who lives in the Austin area with a lot of passion for ancient life, but I'm having trouble making a decisive start with with my searches. I have a particular interest in large western interior seaway predators, most notably xiphactinus, but also the mosasaurs and sharks that lived in the area as well. Finding a vertebrae, of perhaps even teeth from these groups would be absolutely wonderful, but of the few creeks in the Austin area I've scouted, I've been able to turn up nothing besides gastropods. This is still despite heavily studying the sometimes confusing Texas geological ma
  5. Hey hey, hope everybody’s Tuesday went well! I’m new here, 25 and have much to learn in realm of fossil hunting. I’m hoping you can help. I live in Charleston, SC and travel up to Summerville from time to time to explore creeks searching for the ever elusive megalodon. I’m relatively green hunting fossil but I do have some good spots and good finds. Of all the effort I’ve given, and believe me I really have put hundreds of hours into searching, I still have not mastered the art of finding these suckers. I’m hoping someone can help. I’m thinking part of my shortcoming is

    Bradenton FL Area?

    Hopefully some of you might be able to help! I may be taking a drive down to FL to visit some family next month for the holidays. I have done a lot of shark tooth hunting in New Jersey and Maryland closer to where I live. I will be staying in the Bradenton area, can anyone suggest some areas to search that are relatively local to there. I do not mind driving some distance to check out some sites. I have been to the Venice area on the beach years ago but that is all I have ever tried down in FL. Feel free to PM me, just looking for some information and areas to maybe explore near there if possi

  8. Hello everyone! I am looking for Squalicorax (Any species) to help aid in the research I am doing for my University. I'm looking for a bulk amount or Squalicorax hartwelli from Kansas, or anywhere in the Western Interior Seaway. I am also looking for Squalicorax falcatus from the Southern U.K., France, Belgium, and/or Morocco. Any complete or near-complete Squalicorax you have that you are willing to part with, please contact me. I am a college student. I have lots of shark teeth that I can trade, including: - Megalodon shark teeth and meg ancestors ( angustidens, chubutensis, obliq
  9. Hello! My name is Raihan & I’m from Indonesia. I’m kinda new at this shark teeth collecting, I have several teeth & unfortunately I’m a little bit confused about their id. Can anyone tell me about what kind of shark teeth are these? All of them were found in Madura island, Indonesia. Here are the questions. 1) Are these upper & lower teeth from a bull shark? Or it could be from another Carcharhinus sp.? 2) Are these lemons? And if it so, is it N.acutidens? 3) Does anyone know the exact species on these fossilized lemon shark teeth?

    transparent shark tooth, Homdel New Jersey?

    Found this strange object in new jersey, it appears to be a transparent shark tooth, which is something I have never heard of before. there is likely another explanation, but I am unaware of it. Does anyone know what this is? photos taken with an iPhone lined up to a dissecting microscope, the distance between the 2 blue lines is 1cm. -thanks in advance!

    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!

    Cataloging my Sharkteeth

    I have recently been inspired to finally make a serious attempt to organize and catalog my sharktooth collection. I made an attempt years ago but never finished it and I sabotaged my own work by not being able to keep from playing with my fossils. Ever since I started collecting sharkteeth I have used the gem jars with trays for smaller teeth and padded jewelry boxes for the bigger teeth. My first attempt was applying small stickers with specimen info on the bottom of the gem jars. This was fine except for the fact that back then I was always taking the teeth out of their respective jars and p
  13. Local Florida fossil-hunters are familiar with this chunky matrix rock. It is commonly called "Gardner Matrix" or "Micro-Matrix". The material in this post was recovered from an exposure close to the boat ramp at the Gardner locality on the Peace River. (Bone Valley formation, Hawthorn group, Hardee county, Miocene). With most of us locked down due to the pandemic, I have plenty of time to sort through this loosely-consolidated and fossiliferous matrix. It's like fossil-hunting from your back porch. On my last few trips to Gardner, I loaded down my kayak with chunks of this matrix.
  14. @doctor mud, Chris and I went off to a Cretaceous area on the South Island of New Zealand recently and found some amazing fossils. Between us we found paddle bones, shark teeth, petrified wood, a vertebrae and a few other bits. It was our first trip to this spot and had quite a bit of stuff to carry back, I needed help with my backpack as my legs weren't handling it My favourite find was the section of paddle with some associated paddle bones in it. I just finished the video and uploaded it here:
  15. How come I can find (for example in Antwerp) mostly shark teeth and vertebrae and never another part of a shark?
  16. Yesterday I brought home a new display cabinet to show off my collection of sharkteeth. Today I had time to start fiddling with the set-up. This cabinet is on the small side but I liked the looks and the price was right. This is mainly to house my sharkteeth but I have added a few other items as well. Here is a pic of how it looks now. I am not sure if this is how it will stay. I do not want to have it too cluttered, but i also want to fit in as much as possible. This cabinet stands about 41 inches tall, 36 inches wide, and about 14 inches deep.
  17. Hey guys, I live in south Florida and I have been trying to find good locations to hunt for fossilized sharks teeth. I have gone to peace river with my boyfriend before, but we want to try and look for locations that would be closer to us . Please please please help!
  18. This was my second time visiting this well-known Late Carboniferous, Kasimovian stage (305-7mya) spot on the NW edge of the Illinois basin. Here are some things I found. Some large brachiopods. After splitting some rocks, came across this nice tooth. I kept both halves for careful extraction/reassembly at home, which took at least a few hours. I don't know much about shark teeth and after researching, and from what I can glean from what scarce information is available, I think it's a Holocephalia subclass, Chimaera tooth. Possibly Cochliodus sp...? It
  19. Hi everyone, saturday I went on my 2nd fossil hunting trip with my fossil club to the Wienerberger quarry in Rumst in the Rupel area near Antwerp (Belgium). We hunted mainly in a thin Miocene layer dating back to the Burdigalian around 20.43 - 15.97 million years ago. We found many shark teeth, most of which are C. hastalis, but there are a few I can't quite identify as shark teeth are not really my area of expertise and I was not acquainted with the location until my visit. So I was hoping some experts could me out or someone who is familiar with the species from the locat

    Maryland trip 9-28-2019

    This weekend family had to drive to Maryland for my son Dylan's Marching Band competition in Annapolis. We drove down Friday evening after I got out of work. The crazies were out in full force during the drive down, but we managed to arrive safely despite the reckless driving that we witnessed. Dylan's school did not perform till 6:30 PM Saturday evening, so the plan was to do a hunt at Brownies for a few hours then meet my parents for lunch, then go to the Naval stadium and watch the other schools perform until my son school performed. After a rather good breakfast at the hotel we headed to B
  21. We are planning a trip to Savannah for a long weekend. We have heard and read below about shark tooth hunting and Tybee Island beaches. However, I am only finding information regarding booking through tour groups. We would like to do it on our own, but I am having difficulty even finding information about where we can put in at. So, I don't know if it's worth loading up the kayaks or not. If anyone can provide more specific information on being able to navigate the Savannah River on our own to Shark Tooth island it would be greatly appreciated. Or if you have any other recommendations fo
  22. Today I had the pleasure of meeting up with @frankh8147 once again, to hunt the Cretaceous streams of New Jersey. I arrived much earlier than expected after leaving my house by 1am. So I stopped at Dunkin Donuts and grabbed a breakfast sandwich. It was still dark when I got to the site. Frank said that he would probably get there between 7:30- 8:30 so I took my time organizing my gear. As soon as it was light enough I started heading down to the stream. I startled about 8 deer as I made my way to the trail. I really appreciate see wildlife early in the morning. This was my 3rd trip to this

    My Collection

    New to collecting and this site, thought I’d debut my small collection in my first post. Any comments or tips would be appreciated.
  24. Fellow fossil hunters! I live in Jacksonville Beach, FL and have been collecting sharks teeth and shells on our local beaches for a decade. I have found some great teeth on the beach (mostly in the winter when the tourists have gone ) but have yet to find a megalodon tooth or even a fragment of one! My father had some beautiful meg teeth in his collection from when they would dredge for beach renourishment, St. Johns River projects, ect. So I know they are out there to find but I've never been lucky enough to come across one. Has anyone had any luck finding meg teeth
  25. Is anybody interested in a straight up swap, some of your matrix for some of mine? Mine's from Abbey Wood, Kent, England. Eocene shark beds, so 54MYA shark, Ray, pike, occasional turtle, croc and very rarely (although I’ve found a few pieces) mammal. It’s been wet sieved, dried out, and totally unsearched! I'm not interested in any money crossing hands, just matrix for matrix. Apparently my photos are too large to be uploaded but can email photos of my finds and the matrix. Let me know if you’re interested
