  1. Whale Ear Bone

    The guy I got this from said that this is a whale ear bone. Is that true?
  2. Whale Bone?

    A whale bone from Lake Murray, at least I'm pretty sure it is.
  3. Another Shark Tooth

    Another sharks tooth. Any ideas on this one? Doesn't look to be another Tiger Shark tooth, but I could be mistaken.
  4. Sponge or Coral?

    At first I thought this one was a rock, but looking at it closer it looks like it could either be a coral or a sponge, or a rock with holes in it. You guy know what it is?
  5. Mako Shark Relative?

    I feel like these teeth are from a relative of the Mako Shark, assuming they are the same species. Any ideas?
  6. Some Kind of Shark Tooth

    Does anyone have any idea what this is? When I was younger, I thought it was from a Helicoprion, but now I know that it is 99.9% certain that it is not a Helicoprion tooth. Does anyone have any ideas?
  7. Shell

    I found this at my school. I was rather surprised to have found it.
  8. Bone Fragments and Possible Coprolite

    Some tiny bone fragments from the Harleyville Quarry. Possibly a coprolite as well.
  9. Invertebrate

    Some kind of invertebrate from they Harleyville Quarry. I'm not sure what it is. I feel like this is a common fossil since I found so many and I am going to feel stupid after this. Ha ha ha.
  10. Shark Tooth

    I found this sharks tooth at Harleyville Quarry in South Carolina. It is very, very small. Does anyone know what it is? It dates back to the Cenozoic.
  11. Chub or Angustidens

    Hi All, I recently received a number of shark teeth found by divers in the Cooper, Wando and Morgan rivers of South Carolina. Most of them were C.angustidens but these two looked more like C.chubutensis. Although they have narrower blades, the cusps are clearly more merged with the main blade like a Chub. Would love an expert opinion? Thanks
  12. Unknown bone

    So was in one of my usual ditches where I usually find whale bones, and shark teeth varying from Angustidens to Megs. Came across the strange bone that to me looks like a beak of a bird or something. The strange formations or cup like pattern is what threw me off. Found 25 miles inland from Charleston SC and guessing Miocene, Chandler Bridge formation. Any ideas?
  13. Hi All, While diving South Carolina rivers, I've collected a group of bones which seem to have the same general characteristics: Roughly hourglass shaped, tapering lengthwise (like a doorstop), most have perceptible grooves if viewed from the correct angle. Are these just random bone frags that coincidentally eroded to roughly the same shape? Or can they be identified to a specific body part such as an ankle or foot ?
  14. Dutch Creek

    I have read that fossils and shark teeth can be found in a place called Dutch Creek. Does any one know where it is located?
  15. School Fossil Presentation Today

    Well, This is a story that tangentially relates to fossil excursions. I'm not one to want to collect jars of shards or Leaverites but I do like to pocket teeth that I think would be good for trades , gifts etc. My son is approaching the age now where he shows a bit more interest and he has started many 'collections' , shark teeth being one of many. (he collects rocks, sticks, bugs, buttons, shiny crystals - more rocks-, you get the idea) I visited his school this morning for my first (hopefully one of many) presentations. I had a few visual aids up on the projector screen but mainly talked about the Oligocene of South Carolina and sharks. Well, ok Megalodon sharks and the things that they ate, and the landscape at the time. 20 minutes was about all that these figit-y pre-k and kindergarten kids would give me but it was worth it. I may have converted a few in the process. Of course images of fossilized poo won the day and got the biggest reaction. Go figure ... though, I did stick those images in for that very reason. I'd like to give a shout out to Bobby @Boesse and the Mace Brown Museum of Natural History in Charleston for the inspiration. The exhibits there are outstanding and really give you a nice slice of the fauna in the area at the time. I relied on shots from inside of the museum for visual aids when discussing Basilosaurids and the evolution of whales (the kids honestly were more impressed with the whale's teeth). And if it wasn't for Cade and his most excellent hand-drawn identification page @Sharks of SC I don't think the visuals would have been half as impressive. The kids loved the handouts Cade and the cool thing is they double as something that they can color ! The prep Goodie bags for 22 students. They each got 5 teeth from 4 different sharks. Angy partials Oh, and if you are curious the meg at the far end of the table is a beautiful 7" inch reproduction of a Meg tooth by Matty Swilp. One the kids could handle and toss around without me having a heart attack. It looks amazing. The 7 inch repro ... Cheers, Brett
  16. Coral fossil or modern

    For years I have wondered if the coral pieces that I have found on the North Myrtle beach area are modern day or fossil. If fossil from what time period. I have looked on the internet but have not found any clarity. I have found individual coral colonies and ones attached to various shells. The corals are hard stony in nature and are in rounded fashion not branching. I hope that someone can answer this which i would greatly appreciate. Does modern South Carolina have native corals and if so can anyone give me a reference to them as i cannot find any information.
  17. Baby Gater skull fragment

    Here is the find we made in SC. I think It is a fragment of a baby alligator or croc. Found it on the beach in the surf. Any thoughts? And how rare are these little guys?
  18. Mammal Phalanx bone ?

    Hi there, I pulled up this bone out of my screen on Friday and was curious what you thought. I started thinking it was near an ankle or wrist but the closest I have come so far is a horse medial phalanx. At least it looks like a similar function/position. This bone though is asymmetrical so I don't think it is from a horse or Equus sp. The creek cuts through a Late Oligocene marine and then a re-worked Pliocene/Pleistocene. I have been looking at references for giant armadillos but it would be great if someone more familiar with mammal bones might have a better clue .... I am missing images from the side. Thanks, Brett Example Horse medial phalanx
