  1. Good morning to all, I will be traveling to Seabrook, South Carolina on Saturday (6/15/19), and have been doing some research regarding potential sites to go shark tooth/fossil hunting. I have been fascinated with fossils and shark teeth my entire life, but never lived in a location to support this hobby. I've read that Summerville, Charleston, and Cooper River (maybe off-shooting creeks), are common spots, but I'd like to have a more calculated game plan than just stopping at random rivers/creeks LOL. After reading through several of the forums here, I understand that some basic advice would be to utilize google earth or maps, and attempt to locate "dredge spots" in rivers..? Would anyone be willing to help a newbie out with some research 101 type advice? Again, your craft absolutely AMAZES me!!! Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!!!

  8. Hi friends! I'm new, I just stumbled across this forum and it's awesome content while searching for fossil localities near Charleston, South Carolina. I was hoping to get some tips on looking for shark teeth anywhere between Columbia and Charleston. I am taking a road trip from AZ with my family and thought it would be really great to stop and search for fossils along the way. I just can't seem to really pin down any nice spots to find some. I know fossil hunting grounds are a very hush-hush type of thing, but I was hoping that I could be pointed in the direction of somewhere where I might be able to take the kids and hopefully find 5 to 10 teeth. Is anyone willing to share a location that is easily accessible where we can find a few neat little fossils? Maybe somewhere like a road cut, an easily accessible creek, or even a pile of excavated dirt...? Thanks so much!
  9. Heading to Charleston

    Hi, everyone! I’m headed over to Charleston tonight, will be in the area a couple days. Never did any hunting around there but I’ve always wanted to go. I read that there’s a good starting location behind a YMCA in Summerville, and with a bit of hiking you can find other locations, so maybe I’ll start there. I saw posts from a number of people that started there and had good results, so it’s not someone’s secret location. I read that no tools are allowed when in Summerville? Even if I don’t find anything, it’s worth a shot and I’ll be heading up to the Calvert Cliffs on my drive back up to Jersey. I think I’ll check out some of the more southern spots this time- I’ve only searched off of Brownie’s Pt. Still, if anyone has any tips (i.e. don’t bother with that silly ditch behind the Y) of course I’d love to hear them. Of course, I’ll post anything I find.
  10. Hello! This is my first posting in this forum. I'm coming down to the charleston area and hoping to find some meg teeth and other fossils. I have done lots of dives for them but haven't found any (people in my group have found them). I'm interested to find some land sites. I'll be traveling in my van and will have a nice inflatable kayak and snorkeling gear with me. Let me know if you have any advice or want to meet up Mar 1-8 and go on an adventure hunt. Any fossils I find will be used in my general and environmental biology class I teach a a local community college here in Greensboro! Thanks! - Shawn
  11. ID Help - Fossils from Summerville

    Hey guys! Hoping for some help identifying a few things I found in Summerville, SC today. Thanks!
  12. Hey everyone. I’m new to this forum and pretty new to hunting anywhere other than the beach, but I’ve been venturing out to Summerville and a few creeks in the West Ashley area. I’ve found pretty much nothing except for a broken meg tooth in a well known creek in Summerville. I’m not asking for anyone’s specific hunting spot, but does anyone have some insight on other areas besides the Sawmill Branch creek?
  13. Possible Turtle Shell from Summerville

    Hey guys! New member here from Charleston. Hoping to get some help ID’ing what I think might be turtle shell pieces and another potential fossil. Found these in a creek in Summerville along with some teeth (Chandler Bridge Formation). Thanks!
  14. New sites

    I have always looked for shark teeth on folly and Morris island in Charleston SC and I've had very good luck on Morris but I have not found a whole meg yet just broken pieces. I want to expand my sites and start looking in creeks and rivers but I do not know where to start researching good sites. Everytime I Google a spot though I do not get much information. Any advice on places to start?
  15. A couple shark teeth from Charleston, SC

    I'm new here, hi! I've got a few teeth from around Charleston, SC that I'm unsure about. These I'm pretty sure are Angustidens, but I just wanted to make sure. These are not very good quality pictures, but it's the best I've got (father sent them to me). Some kind of whaler species? My guess for this is Great White, but it's very narrow so I wasn't sure. Thanks for the help!
  16. Folly Beach Shark Teeth

    Hi! I don’t know much at all about fossils, but I love going to Folly Beach and picking up shark teeth. In a few hours, I can get about 50-100 teeth. I have an idea of the identity of some, but want to be more sure. If anyone has any info on the identity/age/etc., that’d be great! I think my larger tooth is a meg, are megalodon teeth fairly common at Folly? I’ve gone to Summerville to try to look, but had no luck (no idea where to look). Here are some pics (most are not completely whole):
  17. Today’s haul

    What all do I have here? Anything in particular catch anyone’s eye?
  18. Charleston SC

    What do I have here guys? just found this one today.
  19. Hi all! I've been away from the site for a bit - I taught my first historical geology lecture this spring, and ended up spending three nights a week working on a lecture til the wee hours of the morning, and so the last month has left me without enough time to follow up on the forum. I'll try to get caught up over the next few days. I have a bazillion missed messages from people, so I'll get through them ASAP! This weekend I wrote a new (and very long) blog post about the geology, paleontology, and history of the Ashley Phosphate Beds in the Charleston area - a must read for anyone confused about our stratigraphy! http://coastalpaleo.blogspot.com/2018/05/the-ashley-phosphate-beds.html
  20. Shark teeth

    Just a few of my favs!
  21. Charleston/Summerville

    Hello all, I will be in the Charleston/Summerville area this weekend and a few days into the week. If anyone has any suggestions on where I can try to look for shark teeth, please let me know via PM. I can trade spot locations for some Paleozoic fossils or Mesozoic shark teeth. Next week, I will write a trip report on how things go, I am hoping to find my first tooth over 2.5”, I probably won’t get a chance to find something like that for several more years. Wish me luck!
