  1. Bone with Marrow preserved ?

    Hi all, I realize it would be highly unusual, but could this be fossilized marrow inside this bone frag? I recovered this piece during a South Carolina River fossil dive.
  2. South Carolina River Find

    Hello Forum, Found this river diving in South Carolina. Not sure what to make of it, looks like solid bone, like a dugong rib, except that its very small, only 4 inches. One end is broken, and solid, no marrow cavity. The other end terminates in a point, and where the pointy end is chipped, it looks like normal spongy looking bone structure. Any ideas what this may belong to?
  3. Unknown bone or tooth

    Not quite sure what I'm looking at here, looks like a bone but there are serrations on either side, is this a tooth of some sort or just a fish bone? Found alongside small shark teeth of all varieties and dolphine/whale fossils.
  4. Possible Turtle Shell from Summerville

    Hey guys! New member here from Charleston. Hoping to get some help ID’ing what I think might be turtle shell pieces and another potential fossil. Found these in a creek in Summerville along with some teeth (Chandler Bridge Formation). Thanks!
  5. Conical South Carolina Tooth

    Hi All, Happy New Year! I found this fairly beat-up tooth while river diving in South Carolina. Whats left of it is 2 1/2" long. It's too straight and skinny to be dolphin, right? Any Ideas?
  6. Unknown fossil, maybe tooth

    Found this while sifting in a creek in Summerville SC and it resembles a tooth as far as I can tell. Definitely worn down and root broken off so ID is difficult, but it looks like a damaged whale tooth, but was wondering if that's an accurate guess.
  7. Megalodon or Great White Tooth?

    This tooth was found in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It measures to about 1.5 inches. The shape of the tooth was interesting and unlike what I had seen previously, so I asked around and was told it was most likely a tooth from a Megalodon, however I remained skeptical due to its size. I would like to know what animal this tooth came from. Thank you in advance.
  8. Unusual Tooth Found At Myrtle Beach

    While looking for washed up shark teeth on the beach I stumbled upon this unusual tooth. I had no idea what it was from, so I googled around and nothing came up. It isn't very large. The object measures in at about 1 inch. It has very small serrations that run along it. It was found in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
  9. Has anyone been fossil hunting at, in or on Little River, SC? If so, where is a place to hunt that is legal and not on private property? I've never hunted a river before and don't know how to go about it. Any suggestions welcome. Or if anyone knows other rivers near North Myrtle Beach to hunt? Thanks!

    Turtle head
  11. I’m just an outdoorsman that picks up things when I think they’re neat or different looking. That being said, I found this thing several years ago, wondered over it a while, and then stuck it in a box. Saw it again tonight and got to doing a little research on what it might be and the closest match I came up with was a dinosaur tooth. So I’m asking if that is indeed what it is, or if it’s just a very toothy looking rock of some sort? Either way, I think it’s pretty interesting and would appreciate any best guesses or insight as to what it is. I found it in a wash, maybe 10-15 feet below the surrounding terrain. As best I can remember it was just laying there with some other rocks, a shard of native pottery, and some rusty thing I never identified. This is in upstate South Carolina, Abbeville County, USA. If any further info would help I would be glad to provide it. Just not sure what is needed, even after reading several of the “before you post” threads. But here goes...
  12. Shark Teeth ID

    Hi, I’m new to this site and currently trying to get some of my different fossils identified, for I do not know too much about them. Here are two shark teeth that I can’t ID. At first I thought the larger one was a megalodon tooth but after more research I am uncertain. I found the larger one on folly beach, SC, and the smaller one in a Summerville ditch. Thanks!
  13. Mystery Shark tooth

    Trying to figure out what this tooth is exactly, still working on my identifying knowledge. First thought was young Meg but not sure
  14. Shark teeth

    Here are some shark teeth I have found over the years! I just thought I would share. I enjoy seeing what others have found! Enjoy!
  15. Today I went for my first "serious" (ahum) shark teeth hunt. Over the last few weeks I was keeping my eyes open while walking the beaches of Sullivans Island and Isle of Palms with my wife, but today it was "game on". Left the house at 8:00AM and drove to Folly Beach as I had been reading that of the beaches closes to me that was the best to look for teeth. Weather was nasty, cold and windy. Tide was still high but outgoing. Hardly anybody on the beach. Spent approximately 3 hours without finding anything. I was mainly looking in the accumulations of shells, seaweed, rocks, pottery higher up the beach. Saw one person picking up things at the waterline and decided to ask her what/how she was doing. We had a friendly conversation. I explained that it was my first time. She showed me a handful of small teeth that she found by looking for them as the shallow waves are rolling ashore. I decided that, as I had nothing to lose, to follow her method/advice and started to look close to the waterline as well. I do not think that more than 5 minutes passed before I found MY FIRST TOOTH EVER !! I know that compared with what others here report it is not much, but for me it meant that I had succeeded in my quest. Shortly after, I found a second one, but at that point the nasty conditions were taking their toll and I decided to call it a day. I will be back.
  16. Need identification

    Three years ago I found these fossils at Myrtle Beach and need help identifying them. The one I believe is a small skull of something and the three together I believe are teeth. Pics
  17. Unknown Bone Fossils?

    Another set of unknown fossils from my science museum! These are definitely from the same type of animal, likely found in South Carolina or North Carolina (I found them in storage so I can't be sure). They are obviously different sizes and from different formations, but their structure is nearly identical, they are mirrors of each other. The symmetry suggests something in the hands or feet if the animal.

    Carcharocles angustidens Summerville, South Carolina

    © Matthew Brett Rutland

  19. Here's my issue, I work in a science museum and our former director wasn't good at curating. He often knew what things were on sight, but he didn't write down much for us. I have a whole box of unknown fossils. Since we have several specimens of this fossil type, they were likely collected in South or North Carolina. We do have fossils and specimens from all over the world though, so it's not a guarantee. So I don't know the location, I don't know anything about the geology, and I haven't been able to find similar fossils online visually. I have many pictures, struggling with the file size restraints. I will post more pictures in the reply. Please ask for any details I may have.
  20. 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!
  21. 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)
  22. Fossil Identication Request

    Requesting help to properly identify some fossils I found this past week while walking the coastline of Myrtle Beach, SC.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
