  1. Fin Lover


    I found this vertebra in the Goose Creek area (near Summerville, SC). I thought concave on both ends meant bony fish, but this one doesn't look like other fish verts I've found personally or online. Any ideas? About 17mm at the widest/longest (not sure what you would call it) point. Thank you!

    Whale Rib Piece? (Or tooth?)

    Hello there everyone! I found this in North Myrtle Beach, any ideas as to what it is? Thanks in advance for any information!

    Tiny meg

    I know this little guy is worn, but can it be IDed? Could it be a meg? Slant height of 8 mm and width of 8 mm. Found in the Summerville area. Thank you!

    Small shark tooth for ID

    I've had this tooth for at least a few months, but just came across it again and am wondering what it is. I see features of a few different sharks, but not enough of any particular one to be confident in an ID. 9 mm slant height by 8 mm across. It would have come from my usual areas near Summerville or the beach. Thank you!
  6. I had the fortune of collecting at LaFarge quarry back over a decade ago. I didn't find a lot, but took home a 5 gallon bucket of material at the recommendation of another digger to go through for microfossils. Fast forward tp this weekend and I found the bucket of material. It has been drying for this long and is easy to break up. I am just getting started in the material and found a really neat tooth. At first it looked like a Great White tooth to me, but the root doesn't look right. I put under my microscope and found that the tooth appears more conical. The tooth is approximately 3mm in lo
  7. Hi guys. I found this near Charleston, SC a while back. probably in the Edisto, but I honestly can't remember. It has been in a bucket of miscellaneous fossils for about two years. Anyway, I can't figure out what animal this might have come from. I hope one of you all can help. Thanks a million.
  8. Found a large chunk of bone in a creek near Summerville where I find mostly Oligocene fossils, but a few megs as well. I'm guessing there is no way to identify it, but thought I would ask since it's a unique shape. I have found shark, bony fish, gator and cetacean fossils there. Approximately 5.5 x 6 inches. Thank you!
  9. Hello there everyone! I found these in North Myrtle Beach, I think these are partial turtle shell fragments but would love a second opinion. Thanks in advance for any information!

    Turtle shell edge?

    Hello everyone! Found this in North Myrtle beach, wanted to check and see if it was the edge of a turtle shell, or something else. I'd love to hear what you think! Thanks in advance!
  11. Hello there everyone! I found this in North Myrtle Beach, any ideas as to what it is? It's got some porous parts which make me think bone but I have no clue. Thanks in advance for any information!

    Second opinion for steinkern?

    Hello there! Found this walking the beaches in North Myrtle beach. I think it may be a steinkern but wanted to double check before I tossed it back to the sands. Thanks in advance!

    South Carolina beach fossil

    She’s about an inch long. Found on Folly beach in South Carolina. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Mellita caroliniana - fish nibbled


    These are two "sand dollars," Mellita caroliniana, from the Early Pleistocene Waccamaw Formation of coastal South Carolina. The one on the right has been nibbled by a fish, but survived and healed the damaged edges.

    Atlas Vertebrae from Bison?

    Hello new friends, My family just returned from a trip to Edisto Beach South Carolina, USA. We were walking the beach between Jeremy's Cay and the Pavilion looking for shells and shark's teeth when we almost tripped over this specimen. Based on image searches, it appears to be an atlas vertebrae possibly from a Bison. I am interested in a proper ID and learning as much as I can about it. I am attaching images, but if you need more information or better images, please let me know. I really appreciate any help you can give.
  17. I acquired a collection of fossils in Florida. About half were labeled but the rest were not. These five fossils were in a box with a Fossil labeled Polished Whale Tooth Miocene Cooper River SC and one labeled Fossil Dolphin Tooth Venice Florida. I am guessing 1, 2 and 3 are whale tooth fossils and 4 is from a dolphin. I have no idea what animal 5 is from but am guessing it’s a claw. The back of 2 has metal protrusions with glued paper around them and I am guessing was part of an old display. Any help identifying these is greatly greatly appreciated.
  18. Hi all, I found this fossilized toe bone (measures just under 1.5 inches) that washed out of the Charleston Harbor in Charleston, South Carolina. I got one ID on it. His initial thoughts were it was from a carnivore and he narrowed that down to a Canid or a Bear. He looked at it more and determined it to be a Canid and most likely Dire Wolf. I wanted to run it past any of the mammal experts here to get an opinion. As an avid shark tooth hunter, this is outside of anything I know. I will say Ice Age fossils, outside of horse teeth, are way less common for me here in the Lowcountry o
  19. Hi everyone! I have my eye on a really nice Megalodon. The problem is the seller, who by his own admission is pretty inexperienced with fossils, has no idea if it has any restoration. Now, I could figure it out myself with my UV and some acetone, but the seller doesn't offer returns so I'm conflicted (normally I'd move on but I have a feeling about this one). Figured I'd see if anyone here could spot any funny business. My main concern is a slightly darker area in the upper left root lobe on the lingual side and center of the root on the labial side. Though if it is restored I find

    Lots of imperfection

    The fossil hunters have been out in droves since Hurricane Ian left South Carolina, so I figured I better get out there yesterday. Some creeks were still too high to hunt, so I went to one that has never given me a 100% complete large tooth, but I enjoy the spot and it is typically empty. It definitely was not empty yesterday. I passed a few people leaving when I arrived and passed 8 others as I walked through the creek. Not a good sign. But, all of the others were sifting, which I don't usually do anyway, so I took to checking the high bank for washout. I still didn

    Could anyone verify if these are sharks teeth?
