  1. A few past beach finds

    A few finds I want to learn about if possible, any info appreciated! found Myrtle beach South Carolina, where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene aged fossils can be found. #1, Crab claw #2, heavily worn Croc tooth? #3
  2. Low country river trip

    We took a trip to the river and came back with a bunch of teeth. Unfortunately we didn't find anything big and intact but the ones we did find had some nice colors. Am I correct that the teeth up top are makos and not sand tigers? Also, check out the size of what could have been with this angustiden, if only I could find one like that whole
  3. I've found a couple of listings of archaeocete teeth frags from Harleyville, South Carolina on a fossil seller. I know that Basilosaurus cetoides, Zygorhiza kochii, and Dorudon serratus all exist in this area, with a couple of examples of all three having been found there (now in Charleston Museum collection). However, is there a way to differentiate between them when it comes to teeth, specifically incisors? Some images of the listings are below. First tooth measures 2.6 inches. Second tooth measures 2.2 inches, but is a frag so I imagine that it may be much bigger if restored. Third tooth measures 3.75 inches.
  4. Hi all! I've been away from the site for a bit - I taught my first historical geology lecture this spring, and ended up spending three nights a week working on a lecture til the wee hours of the morning, and so the last month has left me without enough time to follow up on the forum. I'll try to get caught up over the next few days. I have a bazillion missed messages from people, so I'll get through them ASAP! This weekend I wrote a new (and very long) blog post about the geology, paleontology, and history of the Ashley Phosphate Beds in the Charleston area - a must read for anyone confused about our stratigraphy! http://coastalpaleo.blogspot.com/2018/05/the-ashley-phosphate-beds.html
  5. Coral? sponge? ID help

    Unsure on this, I tried to show the details in the white bits through a magnifying lense hope there’s enough detail to see. Any help appreciated! Found Myrtle beach, South Carolina. Pliocene, Pleistocene, and Cretaceous material can be found.
  6. I took advantage of the gorgeous weather to get in my first "serious" snorkel trip of the season today. With air temps in the high 80s and water temps in the 70s F., a nice afternoon low moon tide, and a long rainless stretch I figured conditions would be pretty good. I proceeded to my standard marine Oligocene place. I set out to make a long paddle to a new site I've had my eye on, stopping for quick surface searches at a couple of places along the way. I decided to stop at one of my old favorite spots and just stick my face in the water. Water was low, but not the lowest, clarity was good, and the water was cool enough to be refreshing. I could have wished for more direct sunlight, but perfection is seldom found in real life. The site looked so nice with the clear water I decided to park there a while. I ended up living there in that 100 meter stretch, face down, for 2.5 hours until I was shivering with numb fingertips. I passed on most of the tiny teeth, random turtle material, worn vertebrae, bivalve molds, chunkasaurs, etc. and just aimed to cover ground and pick up the nicer stuff. As usual, the really big teeth eluded me. I picked up one large turtle plastron frag, a nice gastropod steinkern, and an intriguing chunk of what I think is a femoral trochanter. I found the standard Carcharias, Isurus, Hemipristis, spp. teeth and a few heartbreaking fraglodons. What made the day most special were the lovely little 3-5 cm C. angustidens teeth that kept turning up. I ended up with a nice handful of (for me) very nice condition angustidens that made me really happy. Too bad about the lack of biggies and missing out on the new spot, but for me this was a great way to start the season. G
  7. Squalicorax teeth, and book suggestions?

    Found Myrtle beach South Carolina, are all of these teeth Squalicorax Kaupi? I don’t trust myself to be sure. Help appreciated, also if anybody knows of good shark tooth identification books covering North American sharks teeth I’d love to know!
  8. Robin skull cap?

    Found Myrtle beach South Carolina where Cretaceous, Pliocene and Pleistocene fossils can be found. Is this a Robin skull? Looks different than the others I have but that could be the way it’s worn. 2cm long 1.5cm wide
  9. Sharks teeth ID

    Found Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene material can be found. Help appreciated!
  10. Fossil ID

    Is this a Mammoth or Mastadon tooth? ITEM 1 ITEM 2
  11. Small teeth ID

    Found Myrtle beach, South Carolina where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene aged material can be found. These teeth were mixed in one of my past years shark tooth boxes. The first one I thought could be just a very worn sharks tooth but it’s equally wide on both sides from the edge which I haven’t seen in sharks teeth. Any suggestions welcome! Tooth 1 is 11mm long and Tooth 2 is 12mm long.
  12. Bumpy bone?

    Found Myrtle beach South Carolina. Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene material can be found. looks like typical bone to me on the porous side, the other side is odd though. I’ve never seen turtle shell like this either, any thoughts?
  13. Unknown

    A couple things for identifying, the first may just be a rock but something about it made me pick it up, I always think wood but then again I’m always wrong. Any help or suggestions appreciated. Found Myrtle Beach South Carolina, and it bears mentioning that Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene fossils are found here.
  14. large shark tooth?

    Found on beach Isle of Palms, South Carolina. I'm a fossil novice. Possibly a large fossilized shark's tooth...8cm length. Could use some help!
  15. Turtle shell fragment

    This turtle shell is part of the edge and it gives a nice idea of the shape thatwent around the outer part of the shell, I doubt such a small fragment can be identified but I thought I’d give it a go, any suggestions appreciated. Found Myrtle beach South Carolina
  16. Unknown, skin like texture

    Sorry for the not so great pictures as I’m in the process of getting a new phone, any clues as to what this small piece might be from? The texturing I swear I’ve seen on some pieces I’ve found before but I can’t seem to find them, if I do I’ll post additional pics. Any help appreciated, found Myrtle Beach South Carolina.
  17. Interesting bones

    A couple of interesting bones from my dads collection, any clues what these are? Both found Myrtle Beach South Carolina
  18. Tiny shark teeth ID

    These little guys keep popping up in my collection as I sift through attempting to identify all of my teeth, I'm thinking small extinct tiger shark teeth but I always have trouble with the little ones. Any help appreciated-found Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
  19. Some kind of dentition?

    Found at Myrtle Beach South Carolina, thought it might be some kind of ray tooth plating but it doesn't match any of the ray stuff I have, any ideas? One picture has the ray teeth I'm familiar with to the left of unknown piece.
  20. What is this??

    okay, so I know absolutely nothing about fossils or anything or the sort. With that said, I have had this....thing for over 10 years now and have searched high and low for answers. I've posted to many communities seeking something. What. Is. It. Or any ideas what it could be or send me in the direction to figure it out. I'm a research major and this is driving me insane not being able to find answers. I'm going to post the best picture I have of it. Please don't be hateful if you don't know or if this isn't the place to ask, just say so and I'll ask else where, I'm just basically asking anywhere I can. Thanks in advance!
  21. Crab claw

    I'm wondering if someone can identify a species based on this bit of claw, doubtful but I try to be a glass half full kind of guy, I tried to photograph the details. Any info or ideas would be great! Found at Myrtle Beach South Carolina, unlike other crab claws I've found there.
  22. Unknown

    another find from one of my past visits to Myrtle beach South Carolina, I have no clue on this one
  23. Shark tooth fragment found on beach

    I’m eager for some help identifying this shark tooth fragment I found while beach combing on Hilton Head, SC. I’ve found many, many sand tiger shark teeth here over the years, but this is by far the largest. It’s only a fragment, but the size with the huge nodule on the root is so very different from what I usually find on the beach. Is this indeed from a type of sand tiger shark? I’d love to learn more about it.
  24. Fossilized Tusk or Dugong Bone?

    It has been forever since I have posted on here, but I need help Identifying an unknown fossil. This fossil was found around Charleston, South Carolina along with many Angustidens and other shark teeth. This fossil appears to be approximately 4.5 inches from tip to base. I believe this fossil comes from the Oligocene epoch. Please check out the very center and the growth rings. Thank you very much for the help! I am identifying this fossil for a friend and the fossil is currently located in Charleston, SC, so I am not able to take more pictures of it.
