  1. The Fall Creek Crawl

    Hello everyone, since school has let go I've had an opportunity to get back in the water and do some quiet and relaxing hunting. The leaves are falling in the bucket fulls so that does tend to clog things up a bit at this time of year, but the weather has been warmer than usual and the spouse gods have been in my favor. I've had a time documenting some of the more interesting finds. I usually give the haul a good single flatbed scan to archive everything by date and then concentrate on anything interesting. Some color about, which means they haven't been sitting on the creek-bed for too long. A 'dolphin' tooth that isn't completely eaten up .. etc ... I have to say my sailing boots though have made up from their disuse since my time in California (*sigh*). It seems that the extra rubber and neoprene work well in the muck and mud, and keep my digits safe from the broken glass. They are warm on my feet too which is usually the first thing to go .... The Angustidens are always my favorite .. Most are in pieces but when you pick up one with some color or a good tip the curses about the missing cusp fade away. Small teeth with big color .. Billfish hypural from the Chandler bridge and the Ashley fm. Marl (in matrix) . I find rostrum fragments occasionally. Fish jaw part The best and least common are the teeth locked in the matrix. Most likely Ashley fm. below the Chandler bridge. The Aliopias sp. in this location are always small. Maybe the water at this spot wasn't deep enough back in the day .. Vert and tooth ... this tooth is probably my best from the creek. They can take a beating. Cheers, Brett

    Carcharocles angustidens Summerville, South Carolina

    © Matthew Brett Rutland

  6. So, I have acquired a specimen of every species from cretolamna to C. megalodon. Now I just need to get better representatives, or ones that fit the bill better (posteriors, around 2 inches, and curved to the right). The last specimen is coming in the mail later this month (a auriculatus). I need to find a new otodus, a larger angy, a complete meg, and maybe an aksauticus that curves right. Here’s the set without auriculatus, I’ll update this thread with it once it comes. I’ll have to get working on the GW shark line next, that one will be MUCH harder...

  8. Summerville Screamers!

    Hello Everyone! I can honestly, finally, say that I'm beginning to figure out the fossil-enigma that is Summerville, SC. It is a strange land where fossil deposits start and end within a matter of feet - a few inches of glorious gravel separating the sandy, ghostly-grey Chandler Bridge and the compact brownish marl of the Ashley Formation. If, by some miracle, you can find a ditch with the exact right depth, enough width, a little flowing water within a fossil-bearing strata that hasn't been hit by a million other collectors, you just might be able to put something together. Thanks to some nasty weather and a couple of days off of work, I've managed to finally find some spots that fit the bill. The finds pictured below come from two creeks (of maybe 15 that I checked) over the course of the last two days. The angustidens were the obvious gems, with one shamer nearly four inches long and nearly four inches wide! All-in-all, its been a great couple of days and I couldn't be happier with my success. I'll be planning another trip in the near future! Take care and as always.. Happy hunting, SOSC
  9. Thought I'd share some angustidens I'd just received in the mail. Bought these online for 12 bucks including the shipping, don't know if that's good or not, but I'm happy! 3 teeth, biggest one is 1 5/8 inches approximately and the other two are 1 1/2 approximately. Came from the oligocene of South Carolina (no idea the formation, might ask the seller but I don't think they found it) they are a little broken, but are enough to be representive of the species (or chronospecies if you prefer). I'm trying to make a display showing the evolution of the great white and the megalodon, starting with isurolamna, to my knowledge the proposed common ancestor. I'm currently looking for representative specimens of most of them (chub, isurolamna, escheri, hubbelli, praecursor, etc PM me if you have one for cheap or maybe for trade, although I'm low on trading material right now) Sellers pics are better than mine, so using them! thanks for looking!
  10. New here to the forum and to fossil hunting. Found a few teeth over the past few weeks was hoping to get some help with identification and where to find more in the low country. Living in mount pleasant with access to a 23 foot bay boat as well as a few paddle boards. Would love to meet some great people with the same interests as myself and my wife. We would love to host some new friends on our boat for some hunting. If you are in the area and wouldn't mind the company of some newbs that are eager to learn and hunt send me a PM. We are looking forward to becoming knowledgeable on the area and meeting others that share our interests. I have attached a picture of a few of the things we found any help on ID would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  11. Summerville Pays Off Big Time!

    Hello Everyone, Yesterday was my only day off from work this week and I decided that I was overdue for a nice tooth. My usual tidal spots are covered in a fine layer of silt from our recent rainstorms, so I decided to give Summerville a try. For me, productive Summerville sites are about a 30-35 minute drive which is usually enough to keep me on the coast. I've taken a handful of trips to the area, but haven't found anything particularly noteworthy...until this trip! This was a complete 'Hail Mary" trip - I knew I wanted to start with a main canal system and work through some of the deeper feeder creeks. I usually have very little success on the scouting trips, occasionally finding some reworked stuff and interesting formation. But yesterday after over two hours of hiking, spiders, knee-deep mud, and intense heat...I finally found some absolutely beautiful Chandler Bridge Formation lining a deep ditch in the middle of nowhere. I immediately got the sensation that I'd hit a virgin creek. The finds were plentiful with many, many of the usual broken shark teeth and bone pieces and a handful of gems in the mix. Of particular note are a pair of cream-colored Hemipristis serra, a stunner of a 2.2" Carcharocles angustidens, assorted vertebrae, and some associated alligator material! All-in-all it was the best Summerville trip I've had to date, and I'm excited to try some new areas in the near future. Cheers! SOSC My camera batteries just ran out of juice, so stay tuned for forthcoming close-up shots!

  17. 5 inch Meg in the summer ... finally

    Whoo Boy .. what a Friday ! I decided that this was the day I was gonna pull a Meg out of the water. I even called it with my wife present, and she gave me the same rolled eyes to the ceiling look .. haha. I had dropped in two weeks prior and pulled out 3 fraglodons in the 2-3in range in the same spot so I suspected that there were other large chunks to be had if not a whole tooth. These teeth are from a re-worked layer so in the stream they can take a further beating. On the whole the rains have been pretty steady on and off the past few weeks and the water was murky unfortunately. Making it hard to know where I was searching. The humidity was at a wonderful 98% so I was sweating like a yeti in July but thankfully the mosquitoes were absent. The teeth at this spot were not as small, or well preserved for the most part. A few small verts, mako teeth, more fish teeth than I've ever found, a really worn toothed whale, and about a dozen fragmented angustiden teeth. At this spot I was able to score my most complete angy to date in the water. The cusps intact are rare in the stream bed, I've seen them often pristine but these usually are from diggers that attack the banks or land sites. The meg wasn't deep and I flipped it up off the bottom using a sand flea rake of all things .. must've stepped on it a few times before I found it. I hardly ever use that rake. 5 inches on the slant. It's taken over a year so there was nothing easy about it, just happened to get lucky and read the signs. Cheers, Brett a few of the other finds.
  18. Chubutensis or angustidens?

    I just got this pretty 2.5" pungo river tooth in the mail yesterday. What do you guys think, chub, angy or somewhere between? cheers! edit: sorry, photos didn't upload. Here they are...
  19. Summerville, South Carolina - 03/17/17

    Hello folks, Long time no see .... Wanted to share a few finds from the creek-bed. My first two toothed whale teeth popped up in a recent trip, worn but fun. There were a few angustidens as well, and an alopias sp. that was larger and a bit broader than I had seen before. The best part honestly was almost lost ... it's those moments when you pause as you are tossing chunks of larger rock back into the water. Not one, but two little teeth still locked in their matrix came up in my sifter. Cheers, Brett

  22. Hello everyone, I've been hunting the creeks, beaches, banks, streams, and rivers around Charleston since I was about 10 years old. As my passion for the hobby grew, so did my determination to scout new sites and find bigger and better fossils. Ive stayed above the waterline for the most parts, putting in thousands and thousands of hours in the mud and marl. In that time I've found very few megalodon teeth, generally in worn condition, which is typical for Mio-Plio layers locally. Because of this, my goal for years has been to find a well-preserved four inch anterior tooth from a Carcharocles angustidens. Ive come close to realizing this goal several times - I found a great lower tooth on the Edisto River that was just shy of the magic mark, and another upper missing a root lobe, but I had never found the 4-incher I've dreamt of. Until today... This tooth is an absolute beast. It seems like teeth of this size and quality are rare to find in the Ashley Formation, particularly in the reworked sediments I hunt, which makes this find particularly gratifying. The nick to the tip looks to be a compression fracture, indicative of feeding damage. Otherwise, this tooth is about 100%. I couldn't be happier. To make things better, it was sitting about a foot away from another beautiful smaller angustidens - a hunting day to remember for sure. Keep dreaming The monster - And his little brother -

  25. I found this shark's tooth on Martha's Vineyard. Mostly I find megalodon teeth there but the cusp has me confused. The tooth measures 4.175" long. Thanks!
