  1. I had scoped out a few potential fossiling sites in the Summerville area with the help of Google maps, and finally got the chance to check them out on Saturday. While I still couldn't tell you where to find huge teeth in Summerville, I can certainly tell you where you won't now. However, I did find a few promising spots that will require further investigation. Out of the 4 or so new spots I checked out, only two held even the smallest tooth. I also visited an old favorite spot and did alright there. Here are the results from this trip. I've also got some unknown specimens that I have included

    Small odontocete tooth

    I found this tiny tooth in a creek in Summerville South Carolina. Help with an id would be greatly appreciated. I’ve seen a couple other posts with a similar tooth where the consensus was undetermined species. Is this the case with this tooth as well? Thanks in advance!

    A Chubutensis shark tooth?

    I thought there were no chubs in summerville, so I concluded it was a meg.
  4. Hey everyone. I have recently gotten my family into the study of paleontology, but so far, we've only bought fossils online. i.e fossilera. For spring break planning on going Sharks teeth hunting in Summerville South Carolina and are looking for good spots to find sharks teeth and other things. Does anyone here have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    A large tooth shaped fossil

    It has a brown colored rock inside shown in the last picture.
  6. I was able to get down to Summerville and North Charleston twice this month to do some creek and surface hunting. This trip produced some of the prettiest teeth I have collected so far! Found my largest Hemi and a fabulous Angi. I'm loving the colors on these teeth. Also found some other fossils, shark vertebrae, Dugong rib bone piece, etc. I am officially addicted to this new hobby. Trying to figure out when I can get back down there!

  10. So I just finished piecing together the remains of a partial sea turtle carapace that I dug out of a lag deposit just outside the town of Summerville in South Carolina. Anyone potentially know any taxonomic information on it, such as what genus or species it might be from? Conversion from inches to cm: 10 inches = 25cm; 5 inches = 12.5cm; 1 inch = 2.5cm

    Summerville area creek mystery fossil

    Anyone have any idea what this is? Found it in a creek just outside the town of Summerville. It’s definitely a fossil, it has an internal histology. The back part extended longer before it broke digging it out (it’s incredibly fragile). I’m thinking it might be some type of fossil coral, otherwise I have no idea, even with researching it online. I found it next to some associated pieces of a sea turtle shell in a lag deposit, lots of phosphate nodules surrounding it. Very brittle, just like the sea turtle shell, and of the same color as the turtle shell. Weird.
  12. Made my first fossil hunting trip to South Carolina, went to some areas around Summerville, thought I’d share pics of some of the fossils I collected! The best finds were some echovenator-like teeth, Angies, great whites, some intact sections of dugong ribs, and several associated pieces of a sea turtle shell. Felt like Indiana Jones exploring all the creeks trying to find productive spots haha. Fun trip, hope to return in the future!
  13. Hi all! I just got back from a trip to the Charleston area of South Carolina. Did a little fossil hunting just outside Summerville. Ran into a phosphate lag deposit in a creek and dug out part of an associated sea turtle shell. Are associated and/or articulated remains normal for lag deposits? I was surprised by the find, thought lag deposits were a random assemblage of disarticulated/non-associated remains left over and concentrated by receding shorelines. I’ll post pics of the fossils I got on my trip later today, thanks for the help!!!

    Unidentified Summerville Tooth

    Greetings everyone. I collected this pretty little tooth on one of my Summerville, SC trips when I lived in Georgia. It's escaped scrutiny until now. While it unfortunately lacks the root the uniqueness has made me pursue an ID anyway, although it might not be possible. I have considered a serrated Alopias grandis based on the depth, irregular serrations, and overall shape. I've also considered a juvenile Otodus angustidens but I'm having difficulty finding good examples so a lot of comparisons are instead made with other Otodus species. I'd be interested in seeing what others think.

    Squalodon Tooth

    This is one of the teeth that I found recently in a creek bed in Summerville. It was not in a geological formation but The Chandler Bridge Formation is very close. My limited knowledge leads me to think this is a squalodon tooth. Any one have any thoughts? Thanks for your help in identifying this tooth.
  16. Hey hey, hope everybody’s Tuesday went well! I’m new here, 25 and have much to learn in realm of fossil hunting. I’m hoping you can help. I live in Charleston, SC and travel up to Summerville from time to time to explore creeks searching for the ever elusive megalodon. I’m relatively green hunting fossil but I do have some good spots and good finds. Of all the effort I’ve given, and believe me I really have put hundreds of hours into searching, I still have not mastered the art of finding these suckers. I’m hoping someone can help. I’m thinking part of my shortcoming is
  17. Hi all. I have 2 things to ask about. The longer one was found in a creek in summerville SC it is just under 1.5 inches or 3.81cm. It is smooth all around, no ridges the center hole is definitely circular. The second one was found at Green Mill Run in Greenville NC it is .75 inches or 1.9 cm. I thought is was different the way he tip is a different color then the rest. Also there is a ridge running around the tip that I can feel even where the enamel (?) Is not chipped off. Thank you so much!! I am happy to answer questions

    Fossil identification

    I found this tooth today at my usual spot at in Summerville SC and I found this tooth amongst the sharks teeth that was very strange to me. The most similar thing online I’ve seen to it is squalodon due to the wrinkly enamel, accessory cusps, and two roots. However, they seem to be extremely rare or nonexistent in this region. I would love to hear any thoughts or opinions on the ID of this tooth. Thank you on advance!
  19. In between this trip report and the last, I have moved from Houston to Columbia, where I am studying biology at the University of South Carolina, so now I have the opportunitiy to take day trips down to Charleston and Summerville to go fossil hunting, which I am very much looking forwards to doing some more of sometime soon. I made my first trip since moving in on Saturday afternoon to a little creek in Summerville I last hit roughly two and a half months ago. You can see the fruits of that particular trip here: Now, I'm pretty satisfied with the results of this trip, but something impo
  20. I am new to this forum, but from what I have gathered the formations present in Summerville are the ones I have tagged. I have found several shark’s teeth in the bank of man made flood ditches in Summerville SC. I found these three teeth that just seemed different. I would be thrilled to learn more about these and potentially be able to ID them. If there’s any issues with the pictures, I’d be happy to put another one up to be more clear. Thanks in advance!

    Bone with marks

    Hey, I was looking at this bone I found in Summerville, SC and I’m curious to know what the marks are, I know they’re probably not anything but I figured I’d ask so that I could just stop wondering! TIA!

    Summerville SC Land Site

    Let's say I've theoretically found an active construction site in Summerville, South Carolina that I would like to go fossiling in. How would I get permission to go and poke around there? What days of the week would nobody be working there? Also, what would be the best way to begin looking for teeth at a land site? I have some experience in the Summerville creeks, but have no clue where to start here. I would really appreciate some input from those of you who happen to be knowledgable about this kind of thing.
  23. Got a pretty decent haul out of Summerville on Tuesday, finally found a creek spot that was halfway decent. Lots of little broken Meg chunks, but the big tooth remains elusive. I did find a nice angustidens, though, which is in excellent shape for a creek tooth of that size. I put the specimens I could use some help identifying in the upper right hand corner of the first picture. I know the top two are mammal teeth of some sort, pretty sure the right one is either horse or camel, but I have no clue about the one on the left. Below them are what I assume is the remains of some sort of coral, an

    Shark Tooth ID

    A quite weathered tooth that I can’t ID. Found in Summerville, SC.
  25. Hi everyone, fellow Charlestonian here. I've recently got back into shark teeth hunting and have been to a few locations such as behind the YMCA and in those creek branches round there. I am posting here to ask everyone if they have any good locations they would share. I know this community is tight lipped and secretive when it comes to this, but I was hoping there would be a few individuals who didn't mind helping someone actually find some good finds. I get most sites are on private property or the individual has connections to get onto quarries (i.e. Black River Fossils), but I know there a
