    Glyptotherium sp?

    Can anyone tell me if this is a piece of carapace from a glyptodont? It's the closest thing I can find, but mine doesn't have the "daisy" appearance, so I may be wrong, or it may just be really worn. Ventral side is too worn to look for a foramen. Found in Goose Creek, SC where we are finding a mix of things, but mainly Pleistocene (I think...still a newbie). Thank you!
  2. I had scoped out a few potential fossiling sites in the Summerville area with the help of Google maps, and finally got the chance to check them out on Saturday. While I still couldn't tell you where to find huge teeth in Summerville, I can certainly tell you where you won't now. However, I did find a few promising spots that will require further investigation. Out of the 4 or so new spots I checked out, only two held even the smallest tooth. I also visited an old favorite spot and did alright there. Here are the results from this trip. I've also got some unknown specimens that I have included

    Mammal tooth?

    Found this in a drainage ditch in Goose Creek, SC (near the Summerville/Charleston area) and my husband thinks it's a mammal tooth. If so, it's my first one. Found shark teeth and some small shark vertebrae in the same area. Can someone please confirm if this is indeed a mammal tooth and, if so, are there any clues as to what kind? Thanks so much!
  4. I think I know this answer but is feasible that a piece of petrified (real) could have an end of it that was cut (doesn’t appear like a newcomer) it’s just a chopped off end in a perfect cut but not like a shear break and this piece is course like it wouldn’t break like that if it broke and it looks original. Not sure if that makes sense. It’s a whitish piece and came with a cross section slice of another piece that was with it. But I know to be petrified it was before mankind so couldn’t be cut back then?
  5. Hunted a creek which has produced fossils from the late Cretaceous thru the Pleistocene. Clearly a bit degraded but hoping for an identification. Is it a vertebra?Interesting pattern on the centrum.

    Giant Sloth vert??

    Brought this up scuba diving the bottoms of the Cooper River in Charleston, NC: Any chance it’s a Giant Sloth caudal vert??

    Mammal Tooth ID

    Hi all, I found this tooth that washed out of the Charleston Harbor in South Carolina that is ~3 inches long and ~2 inches wide. I was wondering if someone could help me with an ID on it? Thinking it may be horse, bison, or cow, but those are just guesses so any help would be appreciated!

    Shark tooth frag

    I understand that there is too little of this tooth to identify, but my husband is just so desperate to hear that one little word (meg!) that he thinks I'm just too lazy to ask. So, let me see if my assumptions here are correct (still new and learning). Found on Folly Beach (South Carolina) yesterday which I believe means it could be Oligocene to Pleistocene. So, possibly angustiden, chub, subauriculatus (I've also found auriculatus, so I'm not sure which is correct), or meg. Based on the curve, I would guess that it would be at least 3 inches if whole, which I don't think rules any of those o
  9. I'm still trying to get a grasp on how to date teeth from South Carolina. I've read several things, including some older posts on here like this one: However, I'm still not sure I understand. Yesterday, I tried a spot in Goose Creek for the first time. I believe it was just one of the drainage ditches, but it was a decent drop down to it. The very bottom layer of exposed bank was a gray clay type material that appears to be the layer that people in the area dig in. I searched along that layer of the bank and found a few things sticking out that appear to be shark and some other ty

    The color differences!

    Went to Goose Creek, South Carolina yesterday for the first time. Found my largest frags ever and first non-marine tooth, but nothing like what most of you find. However, after having only found the black or gray & black teeth from the beaches, I was amazed at the color difference. Picture of beach finds vs. Goose Creek area finds.
  11. Hey y'all. Long time lurker, first time poster and first time beach fossil hunting (previously only done stuff in TX/CO road and river cuts), so this "sand thing" is all new. I did many hours of research in an attempt to leverage this extra day I had on top of my nonprofit's staff retreat and it did not disappoint. I landed on The Sands beach and Hunting State Park - both near savannah, GA/port royal, SC and both mentioned a few times on this forum. Most of this was found on the Sands within about an hour of looking, but the shark tooth, the flatter possible turtle shell(?) piece, and a couple

    Fossil in beach rock

    I found this rock on Folly Beach yesterday and know even less about these sorts of fossils than I do about shark's teeth. Can someone please tell me what this is? There are 3 of them in the rock, but the other one was harder to photograph. Thanks!

    Tooth or just conveniently shaped?

    I found this on Edisto beach. Can anyone tell me if it is some sort of tooth? Thank you!

    Help with small shark tooth

    I am working on learning to identify the shark teeth we've collected at the beach the last few months and am finding it difficult on some of the smaller ones (though none of them are really big). Especially when the book says lack of serrations is a big identifier for a specific shark, but then says that some of the teeth may have serrations anyways (just a general example). Anyway, the root of this tooth is shaped a lot differently than the others. Not sure if maybe some of the features are worn off, but it seems very smooth and consistent (not broken off). Very rectangular and large for the

    Possible chubutensis tooth

    So I have this tooth that I found up in south Carolina earlier this year, it's an amazing tooth as far as color goes, but does have "a small" bit of corner damage. But what I am wandering about it is (as you have seen in the title) I believe it could be a chubutensis tooth. I am no expert on this kind of shark but I noticed that the remaining corner looks to have an extremely small cusp if it is one at all. if somebody can tell please let me know, thank you.

    Shark teeth identification

    I’m new to the fossil community, and found a few sharks teeth on a beach in southern South Carolina USA. I was wondering if anyone had any insight on what species they may be from. I numbered the teeth in the pictures to avoid any confusion in the replies. Any help is much appreciated, thx.

    Help a noob

    Hi, all, I am new (I posted on the member intro, if you want to know why I'm asking what will be a very easy question for most of you). I'm learning to identify shark teeth with the help of a book that was recommended, as well as this forum, and a few sites. This tooth is confusing me, as it doesn't look like any of the options I've seen. I have a few guesses, but can anyone help me out? Found at either Edisto or Folly Beach in SC. Large serrations on one side and very small (and worn) serrations on the other side. Very big bulge where the nutrient groove is. Thank you so much!

    SC beach find...what is it?

    I found this today in Edisto, South Carolina, on the beach, and would appreciate any information that can be given about it. I can provide additional pictures if needed. Thanks

    Small odontocete tooth

    I found this tiny tooth in a creek in Summerville South Carolina. Help with an id would be greatly appreciated. I’ve seen a couple other posts with a similar tooth where the consensus was undetermined species. Is this the case with this tooth as well? Thanks in advance!

    Did I find a petrified mushroom?

    Found in South Carolina at Folly Beach.

    Similar or not?

    Both of these were found on the beach in South Carolina. They may have nothing in common but have similar characteristics to my eye. The first is approximately 2cm while the second is closer to 3cm. Both are symmetrical though the second is not complete. I look forward to hearing just how far off I am!

    Bone Beach Find

    This bone was found on the beach this morning. It was at the shoreline. I’ve included photos but this is my first post so please let me know if other information is needed. The piece measures 7-10cm. Clearly it is very worn so I don’t know if identification is possible. Any ideas are welcome and appreciated
  24. Hey everyone. I have recently gotten my family into the study of paleontology, but so far, we've only bought fossils online. i.e fossilera. For spring break planning on going Sharks teeth hunting in Summerville South Carolina and are looking for good spots to find sharks teeth and other things. Does anyone here have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
