  1. Heres a fun thread for those to show off their widest and fattest looking megalodon teeth fossils in thier collections. I'll set the tone with the widest fat boy in my collection, I don't have digital calipers but it measure roughly 5.4 inches wide by 6.1 inches long. When I close my hand together it looks even more monstrous. Share yours and join the wide boyclub Got the idea while thinking about what the widest megalodon tooth ever found measures, if anyone does know do share in this thread!
  2. Marine animal tooth?

    I just joined this group. I found this today in the surf of Holden Beach, NC. Just hoping someone can identify it for me
  3. The girls and I got turned away from Matoaka Cabins at capacity) last weekend and I’m sure glad they did. We had a blast - a couple hours at the Cliffs and came across this little beauty laying in a muddy fall pile. I’m assuming a Hubbell Meg with some slight patho ripples. We also met @HemiHunter and his boys poking around the waves too
  4. These are mostly South Carolina River finds, with a couple of Moroccan specimens mixed in. The Megalodon teeth are all natural, ranging from 3” to the 4” range. The shark vertebra go up to about 3.5” in diameter. I have more elsewhere as well. And more Megalodon teeth. LOOKING FOR: I am open to all offers. I am especially interested in matrix pieces of different kinds, unprepared fish, but again I am very open to all sorts of offers.
  5. Worn meg/great white

    Hi, I found this tooth in Florida Miocene Polk county. There are serration impressions on it but I don’t know you can see them from the pics.
  6. Meg or Great White?

    Found this bad boy the other day, debating if its a meg or GW, what do you guys think?
  7. Its still very hard to me to tell between the two when discussing the 1.5-3" range. I know angustidens have cusp but not all of them necessarily do. I know angustidens are also more triangle shaped but really that is not given as megs can also have that depending on tooth location. I attached a picture of some mixed ones and I still dont know which are which. My guesses would be the yellow top one, the black one right next to it, and the bottom left black tooth. The rest are megs? Open to discussion
  8. Shark Tooth Collection

    9This is my shark tooth collection. Thought it would be cool to share here. My collection is a very small one, and is nothing compared to what some people have, but I am quite proud of it. (Image is in reply below)
  9. Shark teeth

    Hi everyone, I have here 4 partial tooth fragments. They were found in Charleston, South Carolina. I believe the first one is C. Angustiden, while the rest are Megalodon. Could anybody kindly confirm?
  10. Hi guys I recently purchased this Megalodon tooth and I'm pretty sure it's real but I wanna know what you guys think.
  11. Baby Meg?

    Hello, i found these shark teeth in manasota key fl, i thought the big one is a megalodon (hope yes) but the small one not sure, maybe a baby meg? Can someone let me know what species they are? Thankyou!!
  12. Quick meg id

    Appreciate it guys, I have a feeling its a chub?
  13. Megalodon next to rib

    My dad was digging up a rib bone, then I spotted a speck of black next to it, and we found this killer! It's about the same size as my first one, 3.5". And check out the size of this second rib bone (the pic with the spade blade) what could this be from???
  14. Megalodon?

    Can someone help me? i found this shark tooth in Austria (Europe) is it a Megalodon? or what is it? thx Didi
  15. Hey all, It's been a while! I stopped posting on the forum for a bit, but the fossil hunting never ceased! Here are a few photos of some of the fossils we've found over the past few months (all found at the same location). Our biggest prize was obviously the juvenile meg (Photos #1 and #2). We're still holding out on this spot for a huge, adult meg...but until then, we've kept ourselves busy finding plenty of bull shark teeth - with amazing coloration (Photo #3)...who knew I could love yellow teeth this much?! In general, the fossils we find at this location have the most remarkable coloration; almost all of the dugong bones we find (and that's A LOT) have a deep red tint to them. In fact, this tiger shark tooth we found has hints of that same red color (Photo #4). What's interesting is that, on one side of the river, the teeth we find are tinted red, but on the other side they are either blue or yellow (small blue lemon shark tooth pictured in Photo #5). And can I just mention how many, and how amazing, the fossilized gar scales we find here are (Photo #6)? It's incredible! Happy hunting! -AG
  16. Meg tooth?

    Hi was wondering if this was a meg.
  17. Otodus angustidens

    From the album Misc. Cenozoic Specimens

    An early O. angustidens.
  18. British Megalodon Tooth

    Hello, I've just been given a megalodon tooth by a fisherman from Essex. He tells me that he found it on his local beach (Harwich) and because he isn't really interested in fossils, it was gathering dust in his shed and he was happy to give it to me. British megs of this quality are basically unheard of... My question is, is it possible that this is a British meg? I have no reason to think he was lying, but if that's the case, this tooth is unbelievable for the location! Cheers!
  19. What kind of tooth is this?

    Hello! What kind of tooth is this? We can't decide whether it may be a baby megalodon or a bull shark tooth. I found it in Fernandina Beach, Florida. Thanks!
  20. Sharing my quest to find 1...just 1 decent Meg. I found a spot in the peace river, lots of gravel and so peaceful area. Even finding anything still makes for great day. So my very first shovel I pull out that Mako in the first picture! Wow so excited I was! Broken up root but that is OK, its so cool. So I come back to this spot and search...and search about a dozen times usually 3-4 hours each time. The first picture is all the Mako/Meg teeth pieces I found during all these trips. Now, like I said, the peaceful time I spend, eating, relaxing watching the fish jump, occasional alligator staring at me makes it all worth while. But, frustration sets in..Why I can not just fine 1 nice Meg? Even a small one that is not all broken would be nice! Well yesterday I had this amazing idea, "Hey I know, I will move down a few hundred feet try there!" The second picture is the result of about 2 hours digging!! The Mako (the bigger of the 2 is 2.25 inches for reference) 5 almost perfect shark teeth for my collection! Megs are under 2" but I do not care they are sweet! Hmm..wonder whats down a little further? Moral of the story, Keep digging, enjoy yourself and the thrill of the hunt. You never know what today may bring!
  21. I am so very lucky to have a fossil site 15 minutes from my house. I have been hunting it consistently for 7 months since I first found it. Yesterday a few hours before sunset, I walked a back section I had not been to in a few weeks. It had rained hard since, but there were also footprints everywhere. At first I found a few small frags of megs...which is always a good sign but the material in the area did not look as fossil rich as I hoped it would be. I did not find anything else for a while and then on the way back to my car I found a really massive piece of turtle shell about 3” x 2” and I got that feeling like okay this is a really good sign.. and then I looked up and saw the tip of a meg about a foot away. I sat down and soaked in the image for quite a while before I starting digging it out. And then I dug veryyy slowly exposing the wrinkles on the enamel to my delight the root was there! (Most often at this site the condition is poor but I love all fossils so I keep going back) I think the damage is from feeding? What do you think? It is a gnarly tooth at 4.5”! Day maker for sure.
  22. Here are my new fossils! And how my collection looks now. For size comparison the enchodus tooth to the right in the picture of the entire collection is 5,6cm long (2.2 Inches long)
  23. Feeding damage?

    Hello! Is this feeding damage? Also do you see any restoration work signs or anything that wouldnt make it 100% authentic?
