  1. Echino fossil

    This was found tumbling in the ocean waves at Myrtle Beach, SC, USA. I think it is missing some distinguishing characteristics. Can anyone help us age or identify? Thank you in advance!
  2. Hip Bone of...What??

    Hello all! First post here; please forgive me if I'm not doing something right. I found this fossil in a creek in Summervile, South Carolina and I believe it's part of a hip bone. I have no idea what it could be from and I am hoping somebody on here could help me out! Thank you so much! (My photos are too large and if I made them smaller I will lose detail, so I will be adding photos as posts asap)
  3. Fossil Identication Request

    Requesting help to properly identify some fossils I found this past week while walking the coastline of Myrtle Beach, SC.
  4. A Femur?

    Here's another puzzle. What are your thoughts about this? The bone is 13" long (not fully intact) and 5" at the widest point. Fossils from the area include equine, buffalo, mastodon, and cetaceans.
  5. Parodotus cf. benedeni (Le Hon 1871)

    From the album Pisces

    32mm. Not so sure about the info and determination on this one, therefore the cf. Picked it up on an internet auction where the only information I could get was "Parotodus, South Carolina". However, with the help of the friends on the id forum I was able to narrow down the id and also am pretty certain that it was found in a river in the Oligocene.
  6. Parotodus provenance?

    I picked up this Parotodus tooth recently on our favorite auction site. The seller couldn't give me much information except to say that it's from South Carolina. I was just wondering if someone might be able to tell me more exactly where it might have originated? I also wanted to ask if this could be a P. benedeni and if it might be from the Eocene, Oligocene or Miocene?
  7. How old is this sea biscuit?

    How old do you think this fossilized sea biscuit is? I found it today at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 3 weeks post Hurricane Florence.
  8. Any guesses on this tooth?

    My brother and daughter went out to a small creekbed nearby (Columbia, South Carolina) hoping to find arrowheads. They came back with this tooth. Sadly I broke it as I was taking the photos. In the picture that is looking at the root of the tooth, I had to hold it together. I included one of the inside in case that helps at all. Any guesses?
  9. History Hunter02's Collection

    Hey everyone! This is my collection of fossils! I have too many collections of stretched from Boy Scout memorabilia to American coins. Most of my fossils are from Pennsylvania and South Carolina. The ones from South Carolina are mostly from the Pleistocene Epoc, while the ones from up north are from the Pennsylvanian period. Mammalian fossils are my favorite especially when I find some awesome teeth! Pictures will be coming over time! All of these are ones that I have found. None have been bought.
  10. Shark Vertebrae washed on shore(?)

    Hi! Yeah I joined just to get something identified. It's what I think is a Shark Vertebrae, about an inch in diameter and a cm tall. Anybody with any idea what shark it is? Two holes on bottom, two on top. And dimples on the sides.
  11. Summerville Vertebrae

    Hey guys, I pulled these vertebrae out of the chandler bridge formation (late oligocene) in Summerville, SC today. Does anyone know what they belong to?
  12. Sites near Charlotte?

    I'm going to be in the area and I was wondering if anyone knew of some sites down there. Roadcuts are preferable, but I'm open to collecting along creeks, just not private property and railroad cuts.
  13. Folly Beach Finds

    Hey guys! Just a few things I found on Folly, i’m not too knowledgeable. Think I got a puffer fish & stingray mouth/dental plate. If anyone can ID and give an approximate age of what’s in the pic, that’d be cool. Pic attached.
  14. Folly Beach Shark Teeth

    Hi! I don’t know much at all about fossils, but I love going to Folly Beach and picking up shark teeth. In a few hours, I can get about 50-100 teeth. I have an idea of the identity of some, but want to be more sure. If anyone has any info on the identity/age/etc., that’d be great! I think my larger tooth is a meg, are megalodon teeth fairly common at Folly? I’ve gone to Summerville to try to look, but had no luck (no idea where to look). Here are some pics (most are not completely whole):
  15. I found this tooth at North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina last week and I have no idea what species to which it belongs. Any help would be appreciated in figuring out what it is. Thanks!
  16. Summerville, Sc trip

    Hello all, my wife and I are making the trip from Virginia Beach down to Summerville,Sc to hunt some creeks for the first time! We’ve been talking about going down there for years, and we finally decided to stop procrastinating and go!! We are very excited, but don’t know exactly where to start. We are going to look at a geological map and do some other research to find out what creeks we should start in. If any one on here has any tips or pointers about hunting here or can point us in the right direction, it would be much appreciated! Also does rainfall affect hunting any of the creeks there? Thanks for any advise, @bnm_fossils
  17. Fossil of holes

    Not exactly sure what this is, my first thought is a burrow fossil but not sure. Each hole is roughly half a centimeter wide with a grouping of 6 of them. Any ideas? Found in Summerville SC stream bed
  18. Hello. My son and I are heading to South Carolina to Summerville area and Folly Beach area to search for Shark Teeth. This is a big trip from California for 4 full days and we hope to find some great fossils. This is August 4th-7th. We are doing an excursion on the 4th. But for the next day or two it is quite hard to figure which creeks/rivers are OK to go to which will give us some luck. Any insights? Checked the forums but it has been hard to find exactly where to go. On the last day we head to Folly beach to see what is there. Any insight on what section to start with? I have been following the tide charts. Thank you!
  19. Looking for help starting out

    Hello fossil hunters. I have moved to South Carolina, Myrtle Beach, from Pennsylvania over a year and a half ago. I am anxious to try my hand at hunting for sharks teeth on land in South Carolina. I have dove the Cooper River for sharks teeth about five years ago. We did eight dives in two days and collected A variety of nice teeth and a few Meg partials. I don’t like diving with alligators. I have collected some Fossils from Illinois ,Pennsylvania, New Jersey and shark teeth from the beaches by our home in Myrtle Beach. I have seen several videos of shark tooth hunters on land west of Charleston. I would really appreciate some help with directions on a place that I can start hunting also. Being new to the area I am looking for help in where to start hunting on land. Thank you in advance for any help that anyone can give me. Ron
  20. I found this listed as having no restoration. The back looks totally real to me - too much damage to be restored. The root and edges look fine to me as well, but something about the enamel just below the bourlette seems off. I may just be seeing things as the hydration cracks look real, but figured I should ask here before buying. Restoration can be tricky to spot sometimes.
  21. Hilton Head Beach Find

    Can anyone please help me identify this? Thank you
  22. Two recent finds from Cooper River SC

    Hello Forum Friends, I've got two recent finds, found during a dive trip to the Cooper river, that I'd like to I.D.. The first is very tiny, 5 ~ 6 mm on the long edge, with an unusual pattern (it's difficult to photograph something so small). The 2nd item, I believe may be a whale tooth frag. it's pretty worn, and split. The inner structure is visible.
  23. Recently got my first Megalodon tooth, this one originating from I believe South Carolina. 4 5/16"
