  1. Day off work

    So, got off work early yesterday so decided to walk my open field area 25 miles inland off of the South Carolina coast. I have learned, and please correct if I am wrong, that this area is Oligocene formation or sediment layer. So spent around 1.5 hours walking and picking up lovely finds. Just wanted to share. Most of them are Angustiden, but a mix of a wishful Meg piece, and a few great white bits. I intend on leaving more from now on the pieces that are broken to leave for others to find. I think we can all tell from the laptop, which is a small 13 " monitor. Biggest one is around 2 inches, thats my beauty with the root, tip, and cusps.
  2. SC Lowcountry fun

    Thought I posted into this discussion earlier but instead slapped it into the SC forum. Heres all the pics from a recent walk I took in a creek after Irma's rains roller through. Couldn't do much in the way of digging, shoulder injury wasnt having any lifting going on. So I took a nice walk, enjoyed nature, and found some teeth along the way (along with a baby copperhead, some friendly turtles, and one squirrel that decided to follow me around). Anyway, scored a beauty of an Angustiden, horse tooth, ray mouth plate, small megs, makos, small verts, just a little bit of everything. Sorry for all the insitu pics, im a sucker for em.......

  17. 9/30/17 Creek walk

    Just a few pics of my day in upper Miocene area of S.C. US. Actually didnt even have to set foot into the creek thanks to the county works. They bring in a backhoe and dig out the creek to avoid flooding and bring it all up to the surface, so I just walk along after rains and pick through it. Gotta love it.
  18. Todays find

    So as Bosse quoted on the last one of these I found it seems that this would be the same thing. And I quote " atympanic bulla of a balaenopterid baleen whale." I just thought this one was unique to do the inner striations were. Found in a deep ditch, Miocene Im assuming (could be wrong), measurements shown on picture. Found in South Carolina, US

    Carcharocles angustidens Summerville, South Carolina

  20. I live in South Carolina and was wondering if anyone knows of any good locations to find fossils or shark teeth here. I've heard that Summerville has some good spots but I haven't been able to find any specific locations. If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it. Thanks
  21. Summerville location help

    Hey guys, im new to fossil hunting/collecting. I live SC and have been to Onslow beach in NC and have found some nice teeth but it is pretty far away and I can't go that often. I've heard that Summerville SC has good locations for finding teeth but I'm not that familiar with the area. If anyone could help and give me any tips or pointers I would greatly appreciate it, thank you.

  24. Hello! I'm making a 10 hour drive from NJ down to Columbia, SC for the total eclipse, September 20-22 (the eclipse is on the 21st). Looks like I picked a hotel location at least an hour and a half from any spots I've seen mentioned here and elsewhere (Colleton State Park, Summerville, Folly Beach, Edisto Beach, etc). Re-booking a new location is not happening since I just looked at hotels.com and saw only red throughout the entire area. Haven't seen too many 2017 posts for South Carolina and I'm nervous about all this mention of strict regulations and permits. Any tips or suggestions? I'm reading that some areas- esp. the beach areas- will be crazy because of eclipse event traffic. Strange, since you just need to be able to see the sun, so I'm not sure why people need to get to someplace special as long as their within the path. I guess people want to be somewhere nice. I wouldn't mind it if I were fossil hunting during the eclipse.
  25. Hello everyone. I stumbled upon this forum when I was looking to try to identify some shark teeth that I have found when I was vacationing last summer ('16 -- North Myrtle Beach) and this summer ('17 -- Surfside Beach, SC ... south of n. myrtle & myrtle). Found the black ones in the sand, by the water, the really white ones, I found in the softer, dry sand. I'm hoping someone will be able to help me identify some of these, that way I know exactly what i've found. Thanks in advance 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 2017 ^ Surfside Beach, SC 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 2016 ^ -- North Myrtle Beach, SC
