  1. How big did mako teeth get?

    Found these in a creek the biggest one bottom right is 2.25” the one next to it with the broken root Has smaller blade but same length all together. The next is 2”. I was wondering if these are really big or more like above average? Thanks
  2. Benedini or Mako?

    Hello all! I am hoping someone can give me a definitive answer about this tooth I found. Is this a Benedini or a Mako? Fyi, its less than a tenth of an inch from being 3 inches.
  3. Bayfront Park 01/25/20

    Me and a friend spent a couple hour searching and a little sifting and left with over 100 teeth! Here are the best from the trip, a couple of makos, a hand full of nice tigers, two bronze whaler?, two cow sharks, and a baby posterior megalodon tooth!
  4. rapp beach hunting

    The wind has been working against me (need a nice SW steady breeze) and only made a couple of trips. Two shrimp coprolite burrows, two decent makos, nice cusps on a few sand tiger shark teeth. Need to organize all my shrimp coprolites, but the weather (excepting the wind direction!) has been very nice.
  5. rapp beach hunting

    With deer hunting season started, I'm avoiding the woods area in favor of beach hunting. We have had several windstorms from the north, which should throw up stuff on the beaches I hunt. Gave away all my bigger mako teeth in Singapore, so need to restock! So far, I've had several good trips for shrimp coprolite burrows (will post what I have later) but not much teeth. Today was nice weather-wise however the water (cold and clear) was very high at low tide, so I need a blow-out wind (from SW) to get to the best spots (shell lines). I was lucky today. Although very few of the usual small teeth were in the wash, I spotted several "teeth" that I could barely reach and two turned out to be mako/ great white. One ugly/great character tooth was the biggest I've found this year at over 2 1/2" (6.5 cm in photos). More of a curve to the tooth blade than other makos I've found, usually almost flat like the 1 1/2" pretty one. Also found a "whale bone" with parallel long indentations on one side (perpendicular to the 'grain' visible on two sides). Curious if this is a structural feature/ specialized bone or maybe just weathering?
  6. Shark Tooth Identification Help

    Hi, I recently bought this tooth from a friend, but I am uncertain which species it belongs to. The root is very thin with great white characteristics, but the lack of serrations on the blade is more like a mako. My best guess is that it is a Giant White Shark (Charcharodon Plicatitis). It measure 2.75 inches. The last 2 photos show the tooth in comparison to a Great White tooth on the right side and a Mako Shark tooth on the left side of the tooth in question. What do you believe it is? Thank you for helping me out.
  7. Doing alright since I moved down to FL! No more dinosaur footprints down here, but there is an abundance of teeth!
  8. Went with a friend. Of all the shark tooth hunts I've gone on, only found small stuff. Well this one day I got a few Megs, I think eight Makos, and a couple broke small Megs! Best hunt so far!!! I'm liking living in Florida so far! Having much better fossil hunting luck then I did when I lived in Connecticut!
  9. New fossil hunter here! I recently moved to Florida for graduate school and was quickly introduced to fossil hunting. I've been addicted ever since. Here are some images of the first fossils I've found here in North Florida. Mako for sure, but can anyone confirm what kind of bone I have? I'm thinking it *could* be mastodon rib, but that's just an amateur's guess. Anyways, I'm excited to continue showing my finds! Baby meg pictures to come...
  10. Help: The Carcharias spectrum

    I’m trying to ID the tooth at the center of this spectrum. To its’ left, Sand Tigers. To its’ right, makos. But the specimen in the middle is... a bit of both?
  11. Thick and curvy

    None of my other many Mako’s look like this... So hooked. Confirming that that’s what it is.
  12. mako teeth for Singapore!

    These are some of the better mako teeth I found over the last year (mostly in the winter). Will be sending the prettiest ones to Singapore. My Singaporean friends have no shark teeth or fossils.
  13. Nice Mako and lower Hemi.

    Today I found the first complete Mako in a few months and I found my biggest lower Hemipristis. I also found a lot of bone today and 2 fish vertebrae. All of these where found near Beaufort SC.

  16. Hello Everyone, Summer is here and the trades must begin ! ... If anyone is looking for some C. hastalis from the Cooper River, SC here they are. These were found diving (not by me I'm not crazy ... ok, not THAT crazy) I'm looking for something with a bit more color, complete (as complete as these examples ?) and any size really .. lightning, scorched, red, green, blue .. what have you. If you have seen my images in the past you will get my drift. I've attached a few below .... 4 for 1 .. 1 for 4 .. 4 for 4 ... I'm easy. They are all pushing 1.5-1.75 in Cheers, Brett Here are a few examples of what I'm looking for .....
  17. Going to post this multiple times due to multiple images. There are just a couple here that I am most curious about but would love any and all feedback. I will post in the order of priority for lack of better words. For some context, took the family to the peace river up in Zolfo Springs, near Arcadia. We found approx 50 teeth, mostly small but some cool ones. Lots of Ray plates and some bones. Most of these are placed up against a US penny simply for a size reference. Any help in identifying would be much appreciated. Thanks all!!!
  18. Mystery Shark Tooth

    Hi all, I recently went on a trip to Brownie's Beach in Maryland in search of Hemies, and I came home with some pretty good little teeth and a few decent sized ones. However, there was one tooth that I found I could not identify. I am not really sure what shark it belongs to, it sort of resembles a sand tiger but the root is very robust and thick. Im more or less lost as to what it could be. Wishful thinking, but I thought it might be a baby megatooth shark or a mako or something along the lines of that. Its a long shot, but I thouht i would ask to see if anyone else could Identify it, haha!
  19. rapp beach hunting

    High water (east wind pushing salt water up the river) but fairly clear. Spent a few hours starting at low tide. Not much debris on the beach, guessing stuff was sand covered. Used a lot of bug spray, but bright sun and a light west breeze kept the no-seeums away. My luck continues the same; decent yellow mako, but broken. A small prettier mako. Bunch of triangular grey shark, bunch of sand tiger spikes (did find an interesting pottery shard and some weird drift wood). Actually ended up with over twice as many teeth as I thought, but no shrimp coprolites or even batoid stuff. Nice day and a bit of exercise. Fun watching the ospreys (getting to be friction between them and the eagles).Need to find some cowshark teeth.
  20. Oh, and one other tooth that I (actually my dig-happy girlfriend found the Tiger) found at Ernst yesterday. It looks like a relatively common lower Mako, but has such a bulbous root on it that I originally thought it was the elusive Paratodus Benendeni. However, it not having a bourlette leads me to believe that it's truly a false, False Mako. Thoughts? The blue cube is 1" square. Many thanks. I just realized that the false False Mako even has a false bourlette (Mineral staining) on it.
  21. Hey TFF Members! Back with another video. Cris and I recently headed to one of our creek sites with a very limited time to hunt, so the only thing to do.... dig like maniacs for a couple hours! Given the amount of time we had, we didn't do bad at all! I am in love with the beautiful blue Mako I found. I also found an awesome Dugong skull cap. These short spontaneous trips are incredibly fun. Give it a watch when you get a chance!

  24. rapp creek hunting

    Combined teeth from two trips, first to the creek, then to the beach. Quantity was better in the creek at least for small and broken teeth. Found a 1 1/2" pretty mako/great white on the beach, a few shrimp coprolite burrows, and the porpoise tooth. Cowshark from the usual spot, but broken, tips missing. Some drum teeth and a few angel shark teeth as well, and a neat little 'winged' vertebra, may take some more photos. Lots of people out with the nice weather. Don't think the fish are biting although the ospreys are very active, may switch to fishing from tooth hunting soon.
  25. Hop 5 03/02/19

    1. Isurus desori: Awesome Mako, just shy of two inches. One of my largest teeth from Bayfront Park. Found within 10 or 15 minutes of stepping foot on the beach. 2. Notorynchus primigenius: Very nice cow shark tooth. Small ding on the first cusp, but mostly complete and a decent size. 3. Cetacean Vertebra: My first whale vert! This lumbar vertebra was completely buried in the sand, with only the very top exposed. 4. Hemipristis serra: Really cool snaggletooth with nice colors and perfect serrations. Could be either an upper or lower, hard to tell. Most likely upper. 5. Cetacean Vertebra: Another whale vert! This one is an atlas vert, and like the first was found almost completely buried. Very much intact, maybe even museum quality. Please cast your vote! The poll ends at 1:00 p.m. EST. Also, if you haven't already, be sure to check out my YouTube video so you can see these fossils as they were found! The link to the video is in my most recent trip report, titled "Bayfront Park 03/02/19: First YouTube Video"
