  1. First time out for me since the floods here in the Charleston area. I have not found any of the gorgeous megs others have found the past couple weeks but I have some great finds nonetheless. Toby, my 9 yr old "little paleontologist", cannot wait to go out this weekend for more. This is my "star" find as far as the teeth I found today. Great Angi!

    Finally organizing our finds

    I'm finally getting around to organizing what we've found and been given so far. Nothing spectacular - some inexpensive containers and cabinet liners. I need to get to the craft store as I think batting would fair better than the liner (but the liner is serving it's purpose for now). The containers fit nicely stacked by two on the bottom shelf of my coffee table. Being that they are semi transparent, that makes for a decent "display". I need a couple more for bigger items I have that are not pictured here (larger bones and vertebrae) and I have some more shells and coral that need to be washe

    Today's Finds...

    I'm pretty exhausted so I did a very quick, preliminary cleaning of our finds. I'll add better photos of the fossils with the ruler over the next day or so to this thread. This is by far our biggest haul so far! Sorry for the poor photo. I promise to get better pics as I clean them properly over the next day or so (algebra exam tomorrow *shudders* so not sure how much attention I can give the finds tomorrow). MEGA thanks to Sharks of SC! edit: there is probably one or two that I will post on the ID thread if I can't find anything online - like the one that is on the top right....
  4. In the continuing adventures of a noob fossil hunter, I learned some good lessons today, even if my haul is less than mediocre. Though my son was excited for the tiger teeth. I think there is a couple broken makos, a super tiny and broken sand tiger (which broke again when I tried to pick it up later after these pics were taken). The top row - the one on the far left and the one on the far right I have no idea what they are... Anyhow, I was searching via Google Maps and found a site I thought was promising. I shared it with another local hunter and he advised me he's been there. Said it cou
  5. I finally was able to get out alone today now that the kids are in school and I had some gas in my van's tank. I scouted places Tuesday but didn't find any place hopeful. Everything is sooooo overgrown right now, it's looking like fall would be better to look at some of those sites again after the plant life has retreated and died off for the winter. I tried to scout a few more places but the only hopeful access road would have required a 4x4 with better clearance - not what my Kia Sedona is! So I went back to one place that has been hunted about to death. We've had some heavy rains the pas

    Multiple Teeth

    All found in Summerville SC. Any I'd help is greatly appreciated.
  7. Hello! I probably will not be fossil hunting again for a little while as one of my sons is having surgery this week. So we struck out on a trip today. We walked in the Edisto around Givhans SP but naturally it's thick with sand. After a quick trip to a nearby cemetery to visit our ancestors from that area, we headed to one of two spots we've done before. That spot was so overgrown it wasn't funny. And looking at the creek, it was very sandy (whereas in May it was far more gravelly). We didn't even bother and moved on to the second site. Lots of small shark teeth, some are truly gorgeous! Som
  8. Not the best pics in the world but I have to get ready to take my son to a doctor's appointment. I wanted to post these anyway... I'll take better photos later and put them on my blog. Note: my 12 yr old son is into smooth stones for building cairns and my 8 year old and I are into the teeth and fossils. (I will label these better and I will never use my laptop to photograph fossils and teeth ever again LOL )
  9. I have no idea what these are. I've been searching images on the internet for days now. I assume, if anything, maybe they are coral but I'm not even close to being sure. I don't see any patterns of like growth rings or anything like that but I'm no expert on corals so IDK. Maybe if they are there they are microscopic. Maybe there are none just as it seems to be. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks! Close up view of the gray specimen Gray on the left and tan on the right Side angle view with gray on the left and tan on the right

    A Crab & Unknown Bones?

    Had some heavy rain last week, so my son and I went looking yesterday. Thought this crab was pretty neat since it is the first we've found. Any id help on the other two is greatly appreciated. I'm not sure the V shaped one more is all that old? The other one has such a thin wall I'm not convinced it is bone, but sure looks and feels like bone.
  11. Can I get some help with verification and identifying these? It was an impromptu stop - my 12 year old and I were there to give some backed up traffic a chance to get flowing again. On the left is the cast of a shell. Next to that is likely a rock but but I couldn't be sure if it was or if it might be something else. The third item I was very unsure of. I *think* it may be a piece of bone, but I'm really not sure (again, may just be a rock). The last item on the right might be bone. I'm mad at myself because I had a beauty of a bone but dropped it. Ugh... Thanks for any help!

    Vertebrae Id Help

    Found this in Summerville, Sc. An area typically associated with Oligocene fossils. An idea what it may have come from? Thanks in advance!

    Mystery Object

    Any thoughts on what this may be? Found in area typically associated with the Chandler Bridge.
  14. Today's fossil hunt with a few of the finds cataloged and posted: http://fossilforay.blogspot.com/2015/06/well-today-was-fun-fossil-hunt-for-sure.html I figured doing this via my blog rather than posting the tons of photos here would make it easier, I hope that's okay. I'm not sure of the ID on most of our finds. I'll make another blog entry with more cataloged over the next couple of days (I hope). For now, gotta jet - lots to do before we all go see Jurassic World!

    Summerville Vertebrae Id Help?

    Hi all. Great forum you have here. Can anyone help me identify what this vertebrae came from? It was found in Summerville, SC so I'm assuming it is from the Oligocene period and came from the Chandler Bridge formation.

    Tooth & Possible Claw Id Help?

    Can any of you please help me ID what these two items may be? The black one does not look like any of the other teeth we have found so I'm wondering if it may be a claw? It was found in Summerville, SC on a ditch bed, typically associated with the Chandler Bridge formation, but further down the Ashley Formation. At least as far as I know.
  17. I don’t know where else to ask, I need your expertise. I've had a great opportunity come my way, but i'm out of my element and need help from like-minded fossil collectors. I've collected fossils in the rivers of Florida and in New York state. I love collecting vertebra and joint bones, and of course teeth, but never in the low country of South Carolina. I will be saying at Harry’s Fish Camp on Lake Marion from the 19th to the 27th with some friends. Were all kayak fishermen, but I love fossils, and they know this and are expecting me to take them on a trip or two. We will all have kayaks a
  18. Hello all! I have another question. I realize the weather is obviously different in the winter, wind, etc. But I have noticed a difference in my shark tooth hunting. It SEEMS like there are not as many teeth as in the summer. Is this possibly due to the difference in the currents? Or perhaps the amount of churning under the breaker areas bringing results ( as in teeth and bones) to the shore? I was reading a book that talked about seasonal changes of surf, swash, etc-does anyone have any comments or can add to this? I hunt the southern Grand Strand area of SC, and am a newbie, so any helpful s

    Edisto Beach, Sc

    This is my image collection from samples of beach sand from Edisto Beach, SC. I hope to add more images and inforamtion to this thread over time, kind of as a way to archive my exploration here. Some background info: Microscope is Amscope M120 with a 1.3 mp digital cam, the mfg claims "the cam is about equal to a 40X eyepiece" (whatever THAT means...) With 4X and 10X objectives, this gives me 2 usable settings of 160X and 400X. Most images will be the 160X variety, the higher magnification not so great at 3-D objects. The best I can figure so far is at "160X" the field of view of the ima
  20. My girlfriend and I are going to be traveling down to SC in late august, and thinking of stopping by the Edisto River to search for shark teeth. Could anyone please give us some advice on a place where we can safely park without any issues, and where we should be able to find decent teeth by snorkeling? Also, there any hotels anyone knows of in the area? We are from Maryland and used to walking the beach along Calvert Cliffs, so any advice would be very much appreciated.

    Vertebra From Savannah River?

    I found this on a beach in the Savannah River. I think its some sort of vertebra or vertebral disc but I'm really not sure. Thank for any help!

    Help On Tooth Ids

    All of these specimens are presumed to be Oligocene-Miocene based upon where they were found. My Guesses: 1. Juvenile angustidens 2. Same 3. Posterior megalodon 4. ??? 5. Pathological tiger Sorry for the the crappy cellphone pictures, and thanks in advance.
  23. For those of you who collect in Charleston, S.C. and surrounding areas, the Chandler Bridge Formation is known to produce some great material. Some of my favorite land spots are exposures of this formation. I found this article to be very helpful, maybe you will too. web link to the PDF: http://www.app.pan.pl/archive/published/app54/app20080077.pdf
