  1. 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.
  2. 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...
  3. 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

  6. 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 -

  9. 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!
  10. Hey everyone, Is there any good way to tell the difference between a C. chubutensis and C. angustidens tooth, especially the smaller ones?
  11. Hello Everyone! I'm in the middle of an intense apartment hunt and increasing work schedule, so I thought I'd use the few hours between work and showings to unwind and find a few fossils. I didn't find a ton of teeth, but I did manage a couple of beauties. in situ -
  12. Hello everyone! Today I enjoyed my second day in a row with a free afternoon, so I did a little kayak exploring for some shark tooth sites. I wasn't having much luck on the new beaches, so I headed to an old faithful beachhead containing loads of dredge spoil. I found several big teeth right off the bat and the finds never slowed down. I only had about an hour and a half of low tide to walk around, but I feel I made the best of it. I had the foresight to pack my phone in a drybag, so I snapped some in-situ shots. Enjoy -

  16. Hello Everyone! If you haven't noticed, Ive been going out to the river pretty much every day this week. Work's been slow, so I've had the afternoons free for exploring. I decided to mix it up today and head out to a site that I explored extensively last month. Most of the gravel and fossils at this site comes out tan or reddish in color, as apposed to the blacks and greys common at the other site I've been to recently. The finds came slowly today, most of the productive areas were covered with a fine layer of silt. I did manage to find one nice angustidens tooth, as well as a shamer of another, larger tooth. I also found a cool dolphin jaw segment, and several nice Hemipristis teeth. I might wait until another good rain before I return to this particular site, but I had fun today anyway. Take care, SOSC Here's the complete haul - Huge shamer here😢3.5"- Nice 1.25" C. angustidens tooth-
  17. Hello everyone! Went back out to my new marsh dig site along the Ashley River in North Charleston today after this morning's showers. While the Pliocene-heavy gravel didn't have any obvious large teeth, the zone that had some dark Oligocene-Miocene gravel had several decent Carcharocles angustidens teeth. The crazy thing about these finds is that they came from the piles of sediment that I dug out yesterday...I just completely missed them! I'm becoming more and more pleased with the abundance of fossils and teeth at this site - really looking foward to my return visit. Take care, SOSC Sorry they're still a little dirty -
  18. Hey all, I might be going on a trip to Japan next year and I was wondering if anyone knew of any good spots near Tokyo? I would really love to get my hands on some Japanese fossils! thanks all!
  19. My friend recently purchased a 3-3.5 inch meg that I sorta like. I'm tempted to offer my 3 inch Angy for it... Should I? Here are the two teeth in question.
  20. Hey Guys, Thought I would start a thread showing some of the more notable finds lately. These are 2013 finds so far. Since there are several pictures, it will take a few posts within this thread. I have to say that most my dives don't include unusual finds. You have to go through a lot of more common material before you find some nicer stuff. I hope you enjoy! Jason This first is a grouping of nicer C. angustidens with the biggest being a little over 4".
  21. Hey Guys, Met up with Madduck this morning for a quick fossil hunt. It was really cold and hard to focus on the ground with our watery eyes and running noses . Despite the cold, we managed to find a few teeth and had a good time talking about our fossil hunting exploits and life in general. For those of you that have not met him, your missing out. A real nice guy. He may post some of the finds here in a bit if he hasn't yet, but I did manage to get a good ground shot of a tooth in situ I think you guys call it. There are three shots, one further away and a closeup, both before I pulled it out and one after. The lighting isn't so good and my phone camera is pretty poor, but the pics capture how easy it is to miss these a decent tooth. Thanks Jason
  22. Went for a quick walk today. I found an Angustidens tooth, almost perfect. Missing a cusp and part of a root but I just love finding teeth like this. I would have to say Angustidens are my favorite teeth to find. This is why I keep going back. Teeth like this one really gets my heart to pumping! This Angustidens is 2.5". Found Charleston, South Carolina. A Land Find.
  23. This was my find of the day this past Friday at C.F. Industries... Approximately 3% of the blade (Give or take 2%) was sticking out of the ground, and that is what I pulled it out of the ground by. It took me about 2 hours of looking at this (At home, and not all at once) to realize that there was the remains of a cusp on this tooth. The cusp is circled in the second picture. This was found in part of the Bone Valley formation (Here in Florida). I was told that it is rare to find this tooth here in FL, and I would like to hear your opinions... Enjoy...
