  3. Beach find

    Found Myrtle beach South Carolina where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene material can be found. An old beach find that I had mistakenly taken for a stingray barb. Could it be part of a small pointed Rostrum? Im really not sure, any ideas appreciated!
  4. Shark tooth

    Found Myrtle Beach South Carolina, where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene material can be found. I know much of the root is missing, I can’t decide on what this tooth is. Any help appreciated!
  5. Unknown

    Found at Myrtle Beach, SC, where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene aged material can be found. This is an old find that I had written off as a clam steinkern piece or something of the sort, but now looking at it the line patterning is pretty different than anything I’ve seen. Any ideas appreciated!
  6. Mammal Tooth/Jaw ID help needed!

    Hello! This is my first post so I hope I am following all of the protocol:) . My family and I are amateur surface hunters. Mostly along the beaches searching for shark's teeth, mouth plates, and various other fossils. My father found this on Edisto Beach, South Carolina this past weekend. It was partially buried in the sand, but he could see the outline under the sand and pulled it up. He discovered what appears to be a partially fossilized mammal jaw. It looks to be a horse or other hooved animal jaw. I was unable to find a similar looking tooth online. These are just the photos I snapped on the beach. I can post better ones if needed. Would love any help or pointing in the right direction! Thank you for your time!
  7. ID help

    A couple more Myrtle beach finds I’m not sure about. Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene age fossils can be found there. Any help greatly appreciated! #1 wood? #2 turtle shell?
  8. I've been going through some unknowns from various past hunts and here is one mystery. This piece looks like it should be familiar and I feel like I've seen it somewhere. This object is about 5.5 cm on longest dimension. It is hard/mineral--not modern bone. It was found in stream gravels at a site that is nearly pure marine Oligocene. Some Pleistocene material is theoretically possible, but I've never found it here. The site is richly fossiliferous with a variety of vertebrate/invertebrate material. Common vertebrates include: sharks/rays/sawfish, bony fish, turtles, crocodilians, toothed/baleen whales, manatee/dugong. My best guess is that it is a ceremonial helmet, once worn by ancient tiny gnomes during demonic rituals. On the off chance I'm wrong about this, who has another idea? It could be a modern human artifact for all I know, but it looks bony and has a foramen-looking hole that brings to mind words like "neural", "vertebral", or "cranial". Thanks for looking. G
  9. Unknown

    Found Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene aged material can be found. I’m not sure what this is, at first I thought it was some kind of boring but it seems that is just because some of the ‘circles’ have fallen out. Any help greatly appreciated! Very small details so these photos were taken under a magnifying lense.
  10. A few past beach finds

    A few finds I want to learn about if possible, any info appreciated! found Myrtle beach South Carolina, where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene aged fossils can be found. #1, Crab claw #2, heavily worn Croc tooth? #3
  11. Low country river trip

    We took a trip to the river and came back with a bunch of teeth. Unfortunately we didn't find anything big and intact but the ones we did find had some nice colors. Am I correct that the teeth up top are makos and not sand tigers? Also, check out the size of what could have been with this angustiden, if only I could find one like that whole
  12. I've found a couple of listings of archaeocete teeth frags from Harleyville, South Carolina on a fossil seller. I know that Basilosaurus cetoides, Zygorhiza kochii, and Dorudon serratus all exist in this area, with a couple of examples of all three having been found there (now in Charleston Museum collection). However, is there a way to differentiate between them when it comes to teeth, specifically incisors? Some images of the listings are below. First tooth measures 2.6 inches. Second tooth measures 2.2 inches, but is a frag so I imagine that it may be much bigger if restored. Third tooth measures 3.75 inches.
  13. Hi all! I've been away from the site for a bit - I taught my first historical geology lecture this spring, and ended up spending three nights a week working on a lecture til the wee hours of the morning, and so the last month has left me without enough time to follow up on the forum. I'll try to get caught up over the next few days. I have a bazillion missed messages from people, so I'll get through them ASAP! This weekend I wrote a new (and very long) blog post about the geology, paleontology, and history of the Ashley Phosphate Beds in the Charleston area - a must read for anyone confused about our stratigraphy! http://coastalpaleo.blogspot.com/2018/05/the-ashley-phosphate-beds.html
  14. Coral? sponge? ID help

    Unsure on this, I tried to show the details in the white bits through a magnifying lense hope there’s enough detail to see. Any help appreciated! Found Myrtle beach, South Carolina. Pliocene, Pleistocene, and Cretaceous material can be found.
  15. I took advantage of the gorgeous weather to get in my first "serious" snorkel trip of the season today. With air temps in the high 80s and water temps in the 70s F., a nice afternoon low moon tide, and a long rainless stretch I figured conditions would be pretty good. I proceeded to my standard marine Oligocene place. I set out to make a long paddle to a new site I've had my eye on, stopping for quick surface searches at a couple of places along the way. I decided to stop at one of my old favorite spots and just stick my face in the water. Water was low, but not the lowest, clarity was good, and the water was cool enough to be refreshing. I could have wished for more direct sunlight, but perfection is seldom found in real life. The site looked so nice with the clear water I decided to park there a while. I ended up living there in that 100 meter stretch, face down, for 2.5 hours until I was shivering with numb fingertips. I passed on most of the tiny teeth, random turtle material, worn vertebrae, bivalve molds, chunkasaurs, etc. and just aimed to cover ground and pick up the nicer stuff. As usual, the really big teeth eluded me. I picked up one large turtle plastron frag, a nice gastropod steinkern, and an intriguing chunk of what I think is a femoral trochanter. I found the standard Carcharias, Isurus, Hemipristis, spp. teeth and a few heartbreaking fraglodons. What made the day most special were the lovely little 3-5 cm C. angustidens teeth that kept turning up. I ended up with a nice handful of (for me) very nice condition angustidens that made me really happy. Too bad about the lack of biggies and missing out on the new spot, but for me this was a great way to start the season. G
  16. Squalicorax teeth, and book suggestions?

    Found Myrtle beach South Carolina, are all of these teeth Squalicorax Kaupi? I don’t trust myself to be sure. Help appreciated, also if anybody knows of good shark tooth identification books covering North American sharks teeth I’d love to know!
  17. Robin skull cap?

    Found Myrtle beach South Carolina where Cretaceous, Pliocene and Pleistocene fossils can be found. Is this a Robin skull? Looks different than the others I have but that could be the way it’s worn. 2cm long 1.5cm wide
  18. Sharks teeth ID

    Found Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene material can be found. Help appreciated!
  19. Fossil ID

    Is this a Mammoth or Mastadon tooth? ITEM 1 ITEM 2
  20. Small teeth ID

    Found Myrtle beach, South Carolina where Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene aged material can be found. These teeth were mixed in one of my past years shark tooth boxes. The first one I thought could be just a very worn sharks tooth but it’s equally wide on both sides from the edge which I haven’t seen in sharks teeth. Any suggestions welcome! Tooth 1 is 11mm long and Tooth 2 is 12mm long.
  21. Bumpy bone?

    Found Myrtle beach South Carolina. Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene material can be found. looks like typical bone to me on the porous side, the other side is odd though. I’ve never seen turtle shell like this either, any thoughts?
  22. Unknown

    A couple things for identifying, the first may just be a rock but something about it made me pick it up, I always think wood but then again I’m always wrong. Any help or suggestions appreciated. Found Myrtle Beach South Carolina, and it bears mentioning that Cretaceous, Pliocene, and Pleistocene fossils are found here.
  23. large shark tooth?

    Found on beach Isle of Palms, South Carolina. I'm a fossil novice. Possibly a large fossilized shark's tooth...8cm length. Could use some help!
