  1. Hello there! I found this on a beach in South Carolina and was questioning how closely it resembled a human tooth? That or maybe a manatee? I could use a hand it figuring out what creature this tooth came from. Thanks in advance for any and all information!

    Strange Possible Molar?

    Hello again everyone! I found this on a beach in South Carolina and couldn't figure out what kind of (if at all) tooth this is? Any information would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance!

    Possible Fossilized Crab Claw?

    Hello everyone! Got this interesting find from Myrtle Beach that I could use some expert opinions identifying. Any and all help is greatly appreciated and thanks in advance! I think it might be a small fractured crab claw.

    Possible Turtle Shell Fragment?

    Howdy all! I found this possible turtle shell shard on a beach in South Carolina. Any help getting a positive ID on what this is a part of would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Found this cool complete little bone while screening some gravel in a Summerville creek. Seems familiar but not enough to hazard a guess. Thanks for looking!

    Equus tooth 9.7.22

  8. Fin Lover


    My last few trips haven't been particularly exciting, and I am seeing more of my spots lost to construction or getting closed off. I did find what originally looked like part of a shark tooth until I got home and saw the barbs. But, it doesn't look like the typical ray barb that I find or see on the forum/online. It has enamel and the individual barbs don't go all the way to the tip. Also, the barbs point the opposite direction from a typical ray barb. Any ideas what it is from? Barb in question: Typical ray barb found the same day: Side by s
  9. These were all found on Myrtle Beach over the last few months and I was just wondering what they were (obviously). They look like fragments of turtle shell but I'm not completely sure. I realize I should've used a lighter more even-colored lighting/background, but I hope these pictures will suffice. Thanks for any input. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

    Bull? Dusky? Great White?

    Hello All, I am new here and trying to identify the species of this tooth that I found in Folly Beach, South Carolina. Does anyone know what species it may be, and would you mind sharing how you came to your conclusion? Thanks! Sarah

    Tusk, tooth, or bone?

    I recently purchased this "tusk" from someone else who said he found it on a fossil hunt in South Carolina. He called it a tusk, but didn't know from what type of creature. I don't believe it's a walrus tusk, and I'm not sure it's even a tusk. Maybe a bone or a tooth? I really have no idea. Thus, I'd appreciate anyone who may have seen something like this before. I've also attached a few photos of other "fragments of a tusk" that came with it. Are all of these the same things? Any idea what they are, and what they are from? Thanks.

    Worn meg?

    I seem to still be very unsure on determining the presence of a bourlette on very worn teeth (since I think this is my third tooth and post with a similar issue). I think maybe I just don't want to mistakenly call something a meg, if it isn't. Would you say this tooth has a bourlette, albeit a very worn one? Thanks for the help!

    Two vertebrae for ID

    Found several shark verts and a bony fish vert yesterday along with these two big verts. I haven't found verts this size before, and haven't been able to identify them. If anyone can help, it would be appreciated. Vert 1: Vert 2:
  14. Hello there! I made my way down to Myrtle beach SC and found a few interesting bits that I would love some help identifying. Thank you for any information in advance! First off we have this scale-like piece (actually no idea what this could be, I've never seen anything like it before): Then we have what I think might be a shard of some kind of mineralized shell fragment? This seems similar to some fossilized turtle shells I've found in the past. Lastly, what might be (really guessing here) a part of a sea robin skull? Please take that with a grain of

    South Carolina (Possible) Fossil haul!

    Hello everyone! I'm just reposting this single 'fossil'(?) as it was grouped into a different topic where it remained identified. Any help with information would be greatly appreciated! (Thanks again for those who have already posted on that original topic)

    Sea Biscuit Fossil ID?

    Hi! I am hoping someone could help ID and date this sea biscuit that I found last week at the northern end of Myrtle Beach, SC. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    South Carolina Fossil?

    Myrtle Beach Fossil Ids

    Hello everyone, A couple years ago I decided to try fossil hunting for the first time at Myrtle Beach, SC after learning about it from a fossil hunter I met while there. I found some interesting things during the week there, mostly in tide pools that formed later in the day, around 5-6 pm I think. There are a few I could tell were fossils, but the rest I am not sure about so I wanted to see if anyone could help give me an idea of what I might've found. There is a fossil dig site in my state not too far from where I live, so I might take them there as well for identification if they allow

    Lower great white or meg?

    As I explore more around Summerville/Ladson, I am starting to find a few teeth that I haven't found before. This one from yesterday has me confused. First guess would be lower great white, after searching old posts on this forum because of the nutrient foramen and lack of cusps (if it had cusps, I would say angy). Root shape doesn't match upper great white, but I think it could be lower (maybe). Doubts about great white are that the serrations look small and the root still doesn't match most of the pics I see of great white. Also not sure if this has a small bourlette or it's just part of the

    Alopias or Paratodus sp.?

    Found this tooth yesterday, washed out of the high bank along a creek in Ladson, SC (near Summerville). Have found teeth from multiple epochs here in the past. I have been looking at Alopias grandis and Paratodus benedini, but I have never found either and definitely need some help. It has enamel "shoulders" (looks like cusps that never really came all of the way out). Thank you!

    Another shark tooth for ID

    I have one other shark tooth from Sunday that I cannot ID. Found in the same creek as the retroflexus, but not necessarily the same formation. Thank you so much!

    Vert and shark tooth

    I knew a day of little finds was coming, and yesterday happened to be that day. Looks like a huge amount of rain had come through, which I thought would be a good thing, but it just washed sand over top of everything. There is a dark, muddy layer where I often find nice angustidens, and a lighter layer below that has sand and clay. I pulled a vert out of the lighter layer, and it's not the typical small, round vert I find. Fish, shark, or something else? I also found what I just assumed was a broken angy in the bottom of the creek and stuck it in a bag. I looked at it today
