  1. Hilton Head trip

    Hey Y'all, I'm coming from Texas to spend spring break in Hilton Head. I've seen lots of references to hunting around Edisto to the north and Savannah to the south. Any good places at or near Hilton Head? I'd love to find shark teeth or pleistocene mammal fossils. Thanks for any help!
  2. South Carolina DNR cracks down on fossil hunters by Bo Petersen Post and Courier, Charleston, SC, November 6, 2016 http://www.postandcourier.com/news/dnr-cracks-down-on-fossil-hunters/article_f7c52752-a108-11e6-a6b0-1745f70896e0.html Yours, Paul H.
  3. Jaw Fragment with Molars

    Hey Everyone, Found this section of Jaw with 5 teeth, while river diving in SC. I'd appreciate your thoughts on ID.
  4. sc shark tooth

    i found this tooth in a ditch near summerville. it was laying on the bottom and im not sure what the different formations look like. it was a lot of whitish rocks sitting on top of light colored clay in the banks and the same clay on the bottom of the creek/ditch. from what i looked up the hawthorne formation was around the area but i dont know too much still new at this. is this an angustidens? its over 3 1/2 inches. and the root looks different than the others i found but ive never found one over 3. thought maybe it was an auriculata after looking at some pictures.
  5. Port Royal, SC Shark Tooth Hunt 10/15/16

    Hello Everyone, Thought I'd share some finds from Port Royal, SC. I've had some free time lately, owing to a large storm with my first name on it .... so I decided to spend two days this week poking around to see what I can find. Here are the best of those trips. A few Hemi shark teeth and my first two (found on the same day) cow shark teeth ! Those were a surprise. A few fish teeth. Mako, g. cuvier, p. contortus There were a few finds I have questions about .. The tooth with the enamel and root, could that be another Tapir Tooth ? Tapirus Venensis ? The larger root looks like a toothed whale of some sort. These deposits are always river deposits with a mish-mash from Miocene to Pleistocene etc ... Cheers, Brett
  6. Tooth or Claw

    Here are pictures of the second one.
  7. Tooth or Claw

    Here are two finds on a recent trip to South Carolina. I am not sure if they are teeth or claws. Any ideas will be GREATLY appreciated. These are pictures of the first one. Second to follow shortly.
  8. Is this a trilobite?

    Greetings! I found this imprint on a large piece of what I assume is coal on the beach in SC. Sand was dredged from offshore to replenish the beach, and there are fossilized teeth of deer, mammoth, mastodon, tapir, megalodons, etc. Nothing nearly as old as a trilobite. A lot of heavy coal pieces were on the beach after hurricane Matthew and I found this imprint on one of them. Can anyone tell from this image if it's a nothing or a something? (Pics were tricky, but can take more if needed and if image file too big I can squish it down.) --Stilitano
  9. More SC Goodies

    Here are some more of my finds from todays hunt.let me know your thoughts on what these could be.
  10. Jaw bone or just a rock?

    Can any one help here. The texture of this item really doesn't look like a fossil, but the shape is intriguing. Does anyone know if I have aything here? Thanks!
  11. Echinocardium orthonotum

    Collection site on the Great PeeDee River. Described by early authors as Duplin Formation but is more likely Raysor based upon description of the formation in Campbell, M.R., and Campbell, L.D., 1995, Preliminary biostratigraphy and molluscan fauna of the Goose Creek Limestone of eastern South Carolina: Tulane Studies in Geology and Paleontology, v. 27, nos. 1-4, p. 53-100.
  12. I was wondering what kind of shark tooth this was. I found it in North Myrtle Beach south Carolina while on vacation
  13. Two Trips to the Marsh

    Hey everyone! I enjoyed a couple of hours over the last few days along the river here in Charleston, SC looking for shark teeth. Most of the teeth have been broken, but a few complete ones showed up here and there. Here's a pic of everything unsorted and dirty
  14. Stumbled on this today. Dated 1936 but has some great info in it about time periods and shore lines with relative elevations. PDF format. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&ved=0ahUKEwi92tatsvXMAhVKaT4KHanOAHMQFgg1MAM&url=https%3A%2F%2Fpubs.usgs.gov%2Fbul%2F0867%2Freport.pdf&usg=AFQjCNHJWSf2eOZOiDbN9Ow2rqkMe5vxaQ&sig2=mfMXvhHbqU1RQtOcJaoPjw&cad=rja
  15. Ashley River Roundup

    Hello Everyone! I'm in the middle of an intense apartment hunt and increasing work schedule, so I thought I'd use the few hours between work and showings to unwind and find a few fossils. I didn't find a ton of teeth, but I did manage a couple of beauties. in situ -
  16. Big Tooth Tuesday!

    Hello everyone! Today I enjoyed my second day in a row with a free afternoon, so I did a little kayak exploring for some shark tooth sites. I wasn't having much luck on the new beaches, so I headed to an old faithful beachhead containing loads of dredge spoil. I found several big teeth right off the bat and the finds never slowed down. I only had about an hour and a half of low tide to walk around, but I feel I made the best of it. I had the foresight to pack my phone in a drybag, so I snapped some in-situ shots. Enjoy -
  17. Hello Everyone, I haven't been out tooth hunting lately as much as I would like to, but I managed to get out for a couple of hours today. I found some great teeth and had a nice time on the water. In addition to the usual hemipristis, makos, and tiger shark teeth, I found a pair of nice little C. angustidens teeth, a blood-red enamel shell of a great white tooth, a great Parotodus benedeni, and a nice (and extremely rare) cusped thresher tooth, Trigonotodus alteri. I posted another cusped thresher found a little over a week ago by my friend at the same site, and I've been dreaming of finding one for myself, which made today's find particularly gratifying. Hope everyone's been enjoying the fair weather and finding some nice fossils! Happy hunting, SOSC Here's today's total haul- Carcharocles angustidens teeth -
  18. Rare Would be an Understatement

    Hello Everyone! I haven't been hunting (or posting) in a couple months. Works been steadily busier, and I've had significantly less free time. The other day, however, I was able to go out hunting for a couple hours with a friend of mine. Within the first 10 minutes I heard "found one!" from across the marsh. When I peered into the muddy, outstretched palm in front of me, I nearly fainted. She had found a beautiful and quite large giant cusped thresher, Trigonotodus alteri. In nearly 20 years of collecting I've never found one personally, but now I know it's at least possible. Tomorrow's my birthday...I know what I'm wishing for. One of these- Happy hunting! SOSC
  19. N Myrtle Beach SC Trip

    Hello, Here are some photos from my beach collecting trip at N Myrtle Beach SC/Cherry Grove Beach SC. I'm pretty sure most of my shells in the photos are modern shells and not fossils but I grouped them all together for the photos! I was hoping for more sharks teeth but it was fun trip none the less. Weather was great! I do have some questions about some of them but I'm guessing I should post that in the fossil ID section?

  21. South Carolina trip

    This week on Feb. 19-20 (Friday & Saturday) my friend and I will be in the Edisto/Beaufort area of South Carolina. Originally we had been thinking about the Savanna, Georgia area but changed our minds. The weather looks like it will be pretty good if not a bit on the chilly side. Right now ours plans are to spend the two days beach combing. We will be arriving Thursday night so as to get an early start on Friday. Does anyone have some suggestions on where to go? Would anyone like to meet up on one of those two days? Kara
