  1. What type of animal bone

    Discovered this past weekend, very unsure of what creature it used to make move??
  2. A day in Summerville, SC

    First time fossil hunter, and we had a blast! If anyone needs a guide, or just advice, I HIGHLY recommend Barry Segura of Fossil Madness (his company). He was able to point us in the right direction, as well as hook us up with some great equipment. Thank you for everyone on TFF that encouraged and gave me advice!!!
  3. Looks like small tooth sawfish

    Found this while hunting shark teeth on Myrtle Beach. Was wondering if anyone had an idea of what it could be? I'm a novice at this. Thanks
  4. Spoils of war !

    Massive lot of diving the cooper river Charleston South Carolina from sharks teeth to billfish vertebrae and vertebrae’s of shark and whale . Couple of shells and ray plates and horse teeth and even a very large arrowhead and large bones.
  5. Good morning to all, I will be traveling to Seabrook, South Carolina on Saturday (6/15/19), and have been doing some research regarding potential sites to go shark tooth/fossil hunting. I have been fascinated with fossils and shark teeth my entire life, but never lived in a location to support this hobby. I've read that Summerville, Charleston, and Cooper River (maybe off-shooting creeks), are common spots, but I'd like to have a more calculated game plan than just stopping at random rivers/creeks LOL. After reading through several of the forums here, I understand that some basic advice would be to utilize google earth or maps, and attempt to locate "dredge spots" in rivers..? Would anyone be willing to help a newbie out with some research 101 type advice? Again, your craft absolutely AMAZES me!!! Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!!!
  6. Hello Everyone, Summer is here and the trades must begin ! ... If anyone is looking for some C. hastalis from the Cooper River, SC here they are. These were found diving (not by me I'm not crazy ... ok, not THAT crazy) I'm looking for something with a bit more color, complete (as complete as these examples ?) and any size really .. lightning, scorched, red, green, blue .. what have you. If you have seen my images in the past you will get my drift. I've attached a few below .... 4 for 1 .. 1 for 4 .. 4 for 4 ... I'm easy. They are all pushing 1.5-1.75 in Cheers, Brett Here are a few examples of what I'm looking for .....
  7. Dermal denticles

    Originally from the Midwest, I've been hunting for fossils for about 50 years and found about two "fossilized sea shells". And this was not from a lack of trying! I moved to Summerville, SC about three years ago for a job that included lots of travel. Now that travel is finished and meeting new friends in the area, I have connected with some kids that stumbled onto something that I think is big! Had I grown up in Summerville, I probably would have change my career to paleontology instead of Electrical Engineering. I am amazed at the finds here in my home town. I have taken my wife and kids including their friends to a spot that allows them to find Shark teeth (at a minimum) within 2 minutes of arriving to an area. My dilemma, I would like to know what these type of "dermal denticles" are. For every 20 shark teeth I find, I find one of these. Please refer to the attached pics. Thanks Matt
  8. Hi friends! I'm new, I just stumbled across this forum and it's awesome content while searching for fossil localities near Charleston, South Carolina. I was hoping to get some tips on looking for shark teeth anywhere between Columbia and Charleston. I am taking a road trip from AZ with my family and thought it would be really great to stop and search for fossils along the way. I just can't seem to really pin down any nice spots to find some. I know fossil hunting grounds are a very hush-hush type of thing, but I was hoping that I could be pointed in the direction of somewhere where I might be able to take the kids and hopefully find 5 to 10 teeth. Is anyone willing to share a location that is easily accessible where we can find a few neat little fossils? Maybe somewhere like a road cut, an easily accessible creek, or even a pile of excavated dirt...? Thanks so much!
  9. Mystery tooth maybe shark ??

    I can’t figure out what kind of Tooth this is found Summerville South Carolina dorchester creek the tooth is exactly 1inch long
  10. Pattern on South Carolina creek rock

    Hi all, i found this while while looking for teeth in a creek in South Carolina, and the pattern caught my attention. Any idea what it might be or what might have made that scale-like pattern? The rock is 1 inch in length and about 0.3 inches wide. thanks in advance!
  11. Myrtle Beach mystery fossils

    These have all been found along the Myrtle Beach coast in the last 4 months. Lots of duplicates of several different items. Locals can't seem to answer what they are. Thanks for any help!
  12. Upcoming Trip to Summerville

    Hello friends! I am going on a trip to Summerville to go find some fossils! The problem is that I had no idea where to look. Can anyone please comment or send me some specific locations where you have had luck finding sharks teeth (megalodon specifically)? I would really appreciate it if you all would help me out! Thanks!
  13. My Giant Alopiid Collection

    Hello Everyone, I’m rather fond of Giant Alopiids, and I have taken to collecting them. I find it strange that such a wonderful, yet mysterious creature remains relatively unknown and scantly studied. I may have space in my high school schedule for an independent study senior year, and I’ve considered using it to make a poster or paper on their morphology, taxonomy, phylogeny and such for The Rostrum or something. However, I’ve heard tell that there is already a comprehensive paper on giant alopiids in the works. We’ll see if there will be anything left for me to discuss. Anyway, collecting them is a slow process as they are quite rare and I am quite cheap (I have yet to find one myself). I thought I’d make a thread to show off what I have thus far and to keep them cataloged for myself. Hopefully this page will grow as time goes on Dashes are around 1 inch apart. South Carolina Alopias grandis
  14. I'm gonna be around Summerville tomorrow and I was wondering if anyone knows of any promising spots to look for shark teeth and other fossils. I actually came here a few years ago and had no luck at all, but I found out I was looking in the wrong places. I know most people don't want to give out the really good secret spots, but if anyone has any hints for someone who's just coming to town for a day, I promise I can keep a secret. Heck, you could even join me if you want. Any hints or suggestions are welcome!
  15. Need help with mammal tooth

    My family are new to fossils and have been combing the beaches of Myrtle Beach. I have a few things that we found that I'm not sure of what it may be. I know this is some sort of mammal tooth but can anyone help me on identification?
  16. Need help with ID. Myrtle Beach

    Could this be a whale tooth? Found in Myrtle Beach.
  17. Hello all. I'm curious to find out if anyone can help identifying a fossil I found on the shore line of North Myrtle Beach while I was on a family vacation last week. Thanks
  18. I've recently moved to coastal South Carolina in the Charleston area. I've also recently discovered the fun of hunting for shark teeth. On my last shark tooth hunting expedition I came across this interesting piece as I was searching a local beach. I think it may be a stingray mouth plate and would like someone to confirm my suspicion. Maybe it isn't even a fossil.... it is in spectacular condition and that makes me wonder/doubt it is. Any help is appreciated.
  19. Turtle skull...?

    Hi all! I’ve been on this site before, asking about a vertebrae I found. I figured since y’all were so kind and welcoming maybe you would help me again! I was walking along the Myrtle Beach, SC this morning and saw this strange looking rock. Washed it off, and I’m positive it’s not just a rock. It looks like a turtle shell to me, but I’m not so sure. as for dimensions, I didn’t have a ruler on me, but an estimate is 3 inches long by an inch and a half at the thick end. I’ll post more photos if necessary, but it has a size limit for the post. Thanks again guys!
  20. Document Requests : Ediscetus

    Hi, I forgot to mention anyone has a copy of the following paper: Albright, L. B., III, A. E. Sanders, and J. H. Geisler. 2018. An unexpectedly derived odontocete from the Ashley Formation (upper Rupelian) of South Carolina, U.S.A. Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology. DOI: 10.1080/02724634.2018.1482555. Also, I wanted to see if anyone has scanned a copy of " Neogene Cetacea of the Lee Creek Phosphate Mine, North Carolina", because the publication in which this section is included carries a hefty price tag.
  21. I’m Located in Savannah, GA but take day trips to Summerville, SC often. We find very good teeth here in Savannah including Megs at our more secret islands on the banks. I usually go with my wife and son but I wanted to find better spots in Summerville to take my kid instead of taking the boat to the islands. Would anybody want to swap spots with me? I would take you on the boat to the islands we hunt from if I can get some inside where to go in summerville.
  22. Heading to Charleston

    Hi, everyone! I’m headed over to Charleston tonight, will be in the area a couple days. Never did any hunting around there but I’ve always wanted to go. I read that there’s a good starting location behind a YMCA in Summerville, and with a bit of hiking you can find other locations, so maybe I’ll start there. I saw posts from a number of people that started there and had good results, so it’s not someone’s secret location. I read that no tools are allowed when in Summerville? Even if I don’t find anything, it’s worth a shot and I’ll be heading up to the Calvert Cliffs on my drive back up to Jersey. I think I’ll check out some of the more southern spots this time- I’ve only searched off of Brownie’s Pt. Still, if anyone has any tips (i.e. don’t bother with that silly ditch behind the Y) of course I’d love to hear them. Of course, I’ll post anything I find.
  23. Unknown tooth, possibly whale

    Found this while sifting in a creek in Summerville SC. Found alongside a wide variety of other fossils (variety of shark teeth, dolphin teeth, horse teeth and other pleistocene bones) so cant pinpoint the time frame. But can't find anything that matches and thinking it may be a whale?
  24. Is this a tooth or rock thoughts?

    Hi can’t figure out if this is a rock or something else? Found on the beach in Myrtle Beach S.C. I’m leaning towards rock but would love your input.
  25. Hey everyone. I’m new to this forum and pretty new to hunting anywhere other than the beach, but I’ve been venturing out to Summerville and a few creeks in the West Ashley area. I’ve found pretty much nothing except for a broken meg tooth in a well known creek in Summerville. I’m not asking for anyone’s specific hunting spot, but does anyone have some insight on other areas besides the Sawmill Branch creek?
