  1. 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!

    Isurus retroflexus

    Isurus retroflexus is from the Miocene-Pliocene epochs. While the vast majority of what I find in this particular location is Miocene-Pliocene in age and is likely to have come from the Goose Creek Limestone formation (early-mid Pliocene), we can't rule out the possibility that it came from an overlying lag deposit called the Ten Mile Hill Formation. The Ten Mile Hill Formation is mid-Pleistocene and can be found overlying older formations in the area. Since Miocene-Pliocene fossils have been found in the base of the Ten Mile Hill Formation and this tooth was ex-situ, the formation is undet

    Two thresher teeth for ID

    I have two teeth that I found previously somewhere in the Summerville area and stuck in a riker mount. Looking through them today, I noticed one that I did not recognize. In comparing it to others in the mount, I noticed another one that has similar enamel on the root (labial side), although the root is much more curved overall. Can anyone help with these? My areas are heavily Oligocene but some have either an overlying Pliocene formation or Pleistocene lag deposit that produces some megs, great whites, etc. Tooth 1: * 14 mm slant height x 14 mm across * Root is very

    Is this poop what I have?

    Good afternoon! I am curious if anyone can tell me what this is? Found on Folly Beach in Charleston. Thanks!
  5. My family has been vacationing at Myrtle Beach for several years now and my son has really got into hunting for shark teeth. He's 12 and has ASD which means when he finds something he really likes and doesn't overwhelm him, it's a win for everyone. We watch a lot of the Facebook groups and the finds that some of those people show off. Our greatest find thus far are 2 GW particle tooth fossils. Lots and Lots of smaller teeth, I think we took home about a hundred last trip. He has always dreamed of finding a megalodon tooth. we have several that we've bought in stores down and around there

    Sawmill Branch contains fossils from more than one formation and epoch, but everything I find online says C. catticus in Summerville come from the Chandler Bridge Formation (upper Oligocene).

    South Carolina coast fossils

    Here is a couple of fossils I’ve found on the coast of South Carolina, I’m really really sorry I couldn’t use a ruler with cm I’m on vacation and this is the best I’ve got! Please tell me if I should post pics of individual fossils as well. D E F and G all look like vertebrae to me, H looks kinda like a piece of a turtle shell, but I’m not very good at Identifying these sorts of things! Again tell me if I need to take different pics!
  8. My friend and I took a short trip to Summerville to go creek hunting. Found a lot of frags, and I was very excited about this Angi. My friend found the large Meg frag. Headed back down Jan 1st- 2nd to scout out some new spots. Hoping for some good luck. Seems like it’s been pretty bare lately…

    Need some idea of what this is

    I found this on Edisto Beach, South Carolina near the point where the Edisto River flows into ST. Helena Sound. I am not even certain it is a fossil, but doing a GOOGLE Lens search, found similar images on this site. It is hard with a rough surface. There is a piece of a shell stuck in what seems like a midline on one side of it. Any clue would be appreciated.

    Fossil Fest 2023

    Just wanted to share information on the Fossil Fest near Summerville. I haven't been before, so I'm not sure how it is.

    C. catticus?

    A little bit of back story: I went to my first gem and mineral show yesterday and chatted with someone from Charleston about the hobby, finds, etc. He asked if I'd ever found a C. catticus, as I guess they are there but rare. So, I looked through some of my teeth today and found two like this (but one is missing a cusp). Could this be a catticus or something else? 16 mm slant height and 13 mm wide, which is what my local book says is the top of the range. I believe I found it on either Folly or Edisto beach, but I am not good about keeping track of location, since everything around her

    Bovid tooth?

    I found this mammal tooth on the banks of the Wando River today (close to Charleston, SC). I've tried to look through old posts and found one picture of a cow p4 that matches better than anything else, but many of the other cow tooth pictures look quite different. Can someone help with this? 17mm length and 10 mm width. Thank you!
  13. Fin Lover


    I found this vertebra in the Goose Creek area (near Summerville, SC). I thought concave on both ends meant bony fish, but this one doesn't look like other fish verts I've found personally or online. Any ideas? About 17mm at the widest/longest (not sure what you would call it) point. Thank you!

    Whale Rib Piece? (Or tooth?)

    Hello there everyone! I found this in North Myrtle Beach, any ideas as to what it is? Thanks in advance for any information!

    Tiny meg

    I know this little guy is worn, but can it be IDed? Could it be a meg? Slant height of 8 mm and width of 8 mm. Found in the Summerville area. Thank you!

    Small shark tooth for ID

    I've had this tooth for at least a few months, but just came across it again and am wondering what it is. I see features of a few different sharks, but not enough of any particular one to be confident in an ID. 9 mm slant height by 8 mm across. It would have come from my usual areas near Summerville or the beach. Thank you!
  18. I had the fortune of collecting at LaFarge quarry back over a decade ago. I didn't find a lot, but took home a 5 gallon bucket of material at the recommendation of another digger to go through for microfossils. Fast forward tp this weekend and I found the bucket of material. It has been drying for this long and is easy to break up. I am just getting started in the material and found a really neat tooth. At first it looked like a Great White tooth to me, but the root doesn't look right. I put under my microscope and found that the tooth appears more conical. The tooth is approximately 3mm in lo
  19. Hi guys. I found this near Charleston, SC a while back. probably in the Edisto, but I honestly can't remember. It has been in a bucket of miscellaneous fossils for about two years. Anyway, I can't figure out what animal this might have come from. I hope one of you all can help. Thanks a million.
