  1. Meant to post this days ago, but accidentally left it unfinished. Whoops. Anyways, on Sunday I took a trip to Northbridge Park on the Ashley River. While definitely enjoyable, due to a nice breeze, a reasonable temperature, and an excellent view, based on my experience I must say that I would not recommend fossil hunting. Teeth were few and far between. However, I might try coming back after a decent storm. For those interested in an easy way to have a good experience fossil hunting in the Charleston area, I would recommend either going on a guided trip or trying the state park end of Folly, which I have heard encouraging things about.
  2. I had scoped out a few potential fossiling sites in the Summerville area with the help of Google maps, and finally got the chance to check them out on Saturday. While I still couldn't tell you where to find huge teeth in Summerville, I can certainly tell you where you won't now. However, I did find a few promising spots that will require further investigation. Out of the 4 or so new spots I checked out, only two held even the smallest tooth. I also visited an old favorite spot and did alright there. Here are the results from this trip. I've also got some unknown specimens that I have included a separate picture of. I you have any idea what any of these are, I would appreciate it if you would let me know. Thanks! - Shoe
  3. I found my first shark tooth on edisto island in South Carolina yesterday! I’ve been researching to try to figure out what kind it is, because it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen, but can’t find anything quite like it on my own. The closest I could find was “megalolamna paradoxodon” and have attached a picture of that as well. It’s very similar, but not quite like it. Thanks in advance for your help, I’m extremely interested and excited to figure this out!!
  4. Bison hoof core?

    I found this bone fragment out on Edisto Beach, SC. I've identified it as a bison hoof core, but I'm not exactly knowledgeable in the field so I'm guessing I'm wildly wrong. Its about 2.5 inches. I have more angles if necessary, the bottom is concave. This is just the max amount of photos I can upload in this post. Thanks in advance!
  5. Wood or Shell?

    I found these fragments on the beach in South Carolina (USA) and I can’t seem to find any information about them online. They're approximately 2-2.5 cm thick and feel a bit like metal. Image searches of petrified wood, turtle shell and coral haven’t produced anything similar. Any ideas?
  6. Baby Bird Fossil ??

    I found this looking for arrowheads. I have a creative mind but it looks like a fossilized baby bird to me. I know very little about fossils and would like some info on this? Thank you for your time.
  7. Hey fossil forum! Yes, I'm still alive :> I am moving into South Carolina (to the Clemson area) in a few months, and I am extremely interested in fossil hunting in (or nearby) Summerville. I've found lots (and I mean lots) of fossils in Ohio for the five years I've lived here, and the fossils here are nice, but I really want to get whale verts/mammal bones into my collection! I'm also hoping to pick up some nice teeth, even though I don't need many more of them. I will be camping with my family in Summerville at the end of July for a full week (solely to find fossils in the area), and I am really hoping on picking up some great stuff during the limited time I can spend there. I don't know any locals, so if someone could please give me advice as to where I should start hunting for fruitful results, that would be awesome!! I literally haven't a clue as to where to begin hunting down in SC. I'd be glad to exchange my personal fossil hunting locations for some down there. (I'm aware of the fossil permit required for fossil hunting in SC; my family and I have already begun the process) -Fossilsniper PS-- I will be away (fossil hunting at St. Leon) for the next few hours, and I'm crossing my fingers for replies when I get back
  8. Myrtle Beach Fossil

    Found this odd fossil washed up in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Eastern shore of U.S.A. It is just over 2 cm. I've found many fossils along the shore here but this one is new to me. Can anyone tell me what it is?
  9. Summerville Tips

    Hey guys, I'm going to be in Charleston here in a bit, just visiting family over the summer, and I would appreciate some help in finding good places in Summerville to hunt the creeks. I've had some success, but I'd like to narrow down my options some before I get out there. I am not asking anyone to surrender their honey holes, but I would like to know which areas of Summerville are topographically favorable for finding fossils. I've noticed that some creeks will be chock full of material, but a near-identical creek half a mile from it will be barren of fossils. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  10. SC fossil trip

    Hi Everyone! I’m new here and hope to get some knowledge. I have been an avid shark tooth hunter for about 6 years. I’m looking to expand to all fossils though, I’ve done lots of research lately and would love to know more about shark tooth hunting in particular. I have mostly only been on beach to look but have researched and would love to find the bigger teeth and Megalodon teeth and whatever other fossils I can find. My question is, I will be going to Myrtle Beach in the next couple of weeks does anyone have any suggestions to go look for the teeth I mentioned above near there besides on the beach? Also I’m looking to go to Summerville soon but not on this trip. Thanks guys, I’m happy to have found this place.
  11. What type of animal bone

    Discovered this past weekend, very unsure of what creature it used to make move??
  12. Looks like small tooth sawfish

    Found this while hunting shark teeth on Myrtle Beach. Was wondering if anyone had an idea of what it could be? I'm a novice at this. Thanks
  13. A day in Summerville, SC

    First time fossil hunter, and we had a blast! If anyone needs a guide, or just advice, I HIGHLY recommend Barry Segura of Fossil Madness (his company). He was able to point us in the right direction, as well as hook us up with some great equipment. Thank you for everyone on TFF that encouraged and gave me advice!!!
  14. Good morning to all, I will be traveling to Seabrook, South Carolina on Saturday (6/15/19), and have been doing some research regarding potential sites to go shark tooth/fossil hunting. I have been fascinated with fossils and shark teeth my entire life, but never lived in a location to support this hobby. I've read that Summerville, Charleston, and Cooper River (maybe off-shooting creeks), are common spots, but I'd like to have a more calculated game plan than just stopping at random rivers/creeks LOL. After reading through several of the forums here, I understand that some basic advice would be to utilize google earth or maps, and attempt to locate "dredge spots" in rivers..? Would anyone be willing to help a newbie out with some research 101 type advice? Again, your craft absolutely AMAZES me!!! Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!!!
  15. Spoils of war !

    Massive lot of diving the cooper river Charleston South Carolina from sharks teeth to billfish vertebrae and vertebrae’s of shark and whale . Couple of shells and ray plates and horse teeth and even a very large arrowhead and large bones.
  16. Hello Everyone, Summer is here and the trades must begin ! ... If anyone is looking for some C. hastalis from the Cooper River, SC here they are. These were found diving (not by me I'm not crazy ... ok, not THAT crazy) I'm looking for something with a bit more color, complete (as complete as these examples ?) and any size really .. lightning, scorched, red, green, blue .. what have you. If you have seen my images in the past you will get my drift. I've attached a few below .... 4 for 1 .. 1 for 4 .. 4 for 4 ... I'm easy. They are all pushing 1.5-1.75 in Cheers, Brett Here are a few examples of what I'm looking for .....
  17. Hi friends! I'm new, I just stumbled across this forum and it's awesome content while searching for fossil localities near Charleston, South Carolina. I was hoping to get some tips on looking for shark teeth anywhere between Columbia and Charleston. I am taking a road trip from AZ with my family and thought it would be really great to stop and search for fossils along the way. I just can't seem to really pin down any nice spots to find some. I know fossil hunting grounds are a very hush-hush type of thing, but I was hoping that I could be pointed in the direction of somewhere where I might be able to take the kids and hopefully find 5 to 10 teeth. Is anyone willing to share a location that is easily accessible where we can find a few neat little fossils? Maybe somewhere like a road cut, an easily accessible creek, or even a pile of excavated dirt...? Thanks so much!
  18. Dermal denticles

    Originally from the Midwest, I've been hunting for fossils for about 50 years and found about two "fossilized sea shells". And this was not from a lack of trying! I moved to Summerville, SC about three years ago for a job that included lots of travel. Now that travel is finished and meeting new friends in the area, I have connected with some kids that stumbled onto something that I think is big! Had I grown up in Summerville, I probably would have change my career to paleontology instead of Electrical Engineering. I am amazed at the finds here in my home town. I have taken my wife and kids including their friends to a spot that allows them to find Shark teeth (at a minimum) within 2 minutes of arriving to an area. My dilemma, I would like to know what these type of "dermal denticles" are. For every 20 shark teeth I find, I find one of these. Please refer to the attached pics. Thanks Matt

  20. Pattern on South Carolina creek rock

    Hi all, i found this while while looking for teeth in a creek in South Carolina, and the pattern caught my attention. Any idea what it might be or what might have made that scale-like pattern? The rock is 1 inch in length and about 0.3 inches wide. thanks in advance!
  21. Myrtle Beach mystery fossils

    These have all been found along the Myrtle Beach coast in the last 4 months. Lots of duplicates of several different items. Locals can't seem to answer what they are. Thanks for any help!
  22. Upcoming Trip to Summerville

    Hello friends! I am going on a trip to Summerville to go find some fossils! The problem is that I had no idea where to look. Can anyone please comment or send me some specific locations where you have had luck finding sharks teeth (megalodon specifically)? I would really appreciate it if you all would help me out! Thanks!
  23. My Giant Alopiid Collection

    Hello Everyone, I’m rather fond of Giant Alopiids, and I have taken to collecting them. I find it strange that such a wonderful, yet mysterious creature remains relatively unknown and scantly studied. I may have space in my high school schedule for an independent study senior year, and I’ve considered using it to make a poster or paper on their morphology, taxonomy, phylogeny and such for The Rostrum or something. However, I’ve heard tell that there is already a comprehensive paper on giant alopiids in the works. We’ll see if there will be anything left for me to discuss. Anyway, collecting them is a slow process as they are quite rare and I am quite cheap (I have yet to find one myself). I thought I’d make a thread to show off what I have thus far and to keep them cataloged for myself. Hopefully this page will grow as time goes on Dashes are around 1 inch apart. South Carolina Alopias grandis
  24. Need help with ID. Myrtle Beach
