  8. 9/30/17 Creek walk

    Just a few pics of my day in upper Miocene area of S.C. US. Actually didnt even have to set foot into the creek thanks to the county works. They bring in a backhoe and dig out the creek to avoid flooding and bring it all up to the surface, so I just walk along after rains and pick through it. Gotta love it.
  9. Todays find

    So as Bosse quoted on the last one of these I found it seems that this would be the same thing. And I quote " atympanic bulla of a balaenopterid baleen whale." I just thought this one was unique to do the inner striations were. Found in a deep ditch, Miocene Im assuming (could be wrong), measurements shown on picture. Found in South Carolina, US

  11. I live in South Carolina and was wondering if anyone knows of any good locations to find fossils or shark teeth here. I've heard that Summerville has some good spots but I haven't been able to find any specific locations. If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it. Thanks
  12. Summerville location help

    Hey guys, im new to fossil hunting/collecting. I live SC and have been to Onslow beach in NC and have found some nice teeth but it is pretty far away and I can't go that often. I've heard that Summerville SC has good locations for finding teeth but I'm not that familiar with the area. If anyone could help and give me any tips or pointers I would greatly appreciate it, thank you.

  15. Hello! I'm making a 10 hour drive from NJ down to Columbia, SC for the total eclipse, September 20-22 (the eclipse is on the 21st). Looks like I picked a hotel location at least an hour and a half from any spots I've seen mentioned here and elsewhere (Colleton State Park, Summerville, Folly Beach, Edisto Beach, etc). Re-booking a new location is not happening since I just looked at hotels.com and saw only red throughout the entire area. Haven't seen too many 2017 posts for South Carolina and I'm nervous about all this mention of strict regulations and permits. Any tips or suggestions? I'm reading that some areas- esp. the beach areas- will be crazy because of eclipse event traffic. Strange, since you just need to be able to see the sun, so I'm not sure why people need to get to someplace special as long as their within the path. I guess people want to be somewhere nice. I wouldn't mind it if I were fossil hunting during the eclipse.
  16. Hello everyone. I stumbled upon this forum when I was looking to try to identify some shark teeth that I have found when I was vacationing last summer ('16 -- North Myrtle Beach) and this summer ('17 -- Surfside Beach, SC ... south of n. myrtle & myrtle). Found the black ones in the sand, by the water, the really white ones, I found in the softer, dry sand. I'm hoping someone will be able to help me identify some of these, that way I know exactly what i've found. Thanks in advance 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 2017 ^ Surfside Beach, SC 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 2016 ^ -- North Myrtle Beach, SC
  17. So I have a few days off duty and I'm planning on making a long weekend out of it. I'm starting tomorrow in Aurora, NC at the museum's spoil piles. This will be a first, so any suggestions are appreciated. Saturday I will be going to the Charelston, SC area to try my luck again. I was looking for advice in this area. I have done a ton of research with little success. I don't expect someone to give exact locations to their honey holes but advise would be great! Also anyone interested in joining would be welcome. Finally, a few days of free diving the bone yard in Venice, FL.... That's home! Any advice, suggestions, or anyone interested in joining please chime in. I'll post pics as it happens. Thanks in advance, Justin
  18. This is a cobbled together report of a couple of short excursions in July. Early in the month I took the kids to visit my mother at the old home in northern Pennsylvania. It was a nice escape from the heat and fun to introduce the kids to some of the areas I explored when I was their age. We spent a lot of time playing in the creek. Fresh, living biology was our main interest, but my daughter picked up a couple of nice fossils on the side. She secured a lovely plate, naturally oval shaped, less than 1 cm thick, full of cross-sectional crinoid segment impressions. She also found a nice plate of brachiopod casts. This area is Mississippian or Devonian. These are common fossils for the area, but it's pleasing to consider that these animals were fossilized for millions of years before the fauna we "normally" hunt evolved. Last weekend I got away for a few hours to hunt a local South Carolina waterway for Oligocene and newer material. The water level was ideal and the water was fairly clear, but the overcast conditions made for a bit less than ideal visibility. With the 90+ F air temperatures, being in the 80+ F water with mask and snorkel felt marvelous. I turned up a fair number of teeth of the typical broken-tipped and fragmented variety, mostly C. angustidens (I think) with a single very worn C. megalodon. There were a small handful of fairly nice smaller teeth mixed in. I picked up a couple of nice turtle plastron fragments with good surface detail. I also found an alligator osteoderm which I think is actually a modern piece. Sorry about the dark fossil photos--I never seem to have time to get good photos in daylight, but I'm going to work on it. G
  19. Is this a shark tooth?

    Found this on the coast in South Carolina. I was about to toss it aside but I noticed the striations on the front surface. It's about 1 & 3/8 inches from top to bottom. The back side looks nothing like a shark tooth, but could this just be a broken fragment of something that was once larger?
  20. Petrified Wood?

  25. Shark teeth

    Hi! I'm new to TFF and hunting for shark teeth as well. With that being said I can't seem to identify these teeth and any help is greatly appreciated! I think the bottom are sand tigers but I am not 100% sure.
