  1. Went with a friend. Of all the shark yooohjnts 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!
  2. My friend joined me for a weekend of black water diving. She found a couple massive heart-breaker megalodon teeth her very fist time! Perfect conditions all weekend long made it a great time on the water.
  3. I want to get my brother a great gift, he's amazing. He loves everything dinosaur and has a huge interest in fossils. He has a very small collection, but nothing like what I'm looking at. I've seen a couple of nice looking Megalodon teeth fossils online, but I don't know if they're authentic, if they've been repaired, or if I'm going to end up burning a hole in my pocket for something that's not worth the price. The first photos are for one that is 3.8 inches. The second is 4.4 inches. Thanks in advance!
  4. Back again! My fossil hunting partner and I have found a killer spot here in North Florida. We've found a collection of things thus far (left to right)-- partial meg (would have been a pretty decent size), juvenile meg, dugong rib (with feeding damage, found next to juv meg), a shark tooth I can't identify (serrated), and an unidentifiable bone. We've also found turtle shell, lemon shark teeth, whale vert and lots of bone! Any ideas what the ID of smaller tooth and bone are?
  5. Hi everyone! I received this tooth when I was younger, and never thought much of verifying it until now. Could anyone help in telling me if this Megalodon tooth is real or a replica? Thank you!
  6. Good Morning everyone, I have a toddler who recently got very much into dinosaurs and fossils which eventually brought back all my childhood afflictions and memories to same. We stopped my a small fossil shop near Austin where we both went crazy with all the variety. Needless to say he got some very nice, small items. I spent quite a lot on a few pieces with the hype and childhood yearn to always have in possession a few Real items. Upon our arrival at home and in closer inspection as well as researching online, I'm not sure if I purchased authentic fossils. PLEASE HELP ME! My first post with is a Megalodon Tooth that he said was fused on a crack. I’ll post some others thereafter.
  7. Venice scuba finds

    Had a nice day of diving off Venice. Lots of broken and small teeth, but the highlights were definitely this nice 4” and chunky 5.5”.
  8. Meg and the funky coprolites

    A few highlights from a quick trip to an eastern Virginia stream with @Gizmo. Found loads of coprolites. The shark coprolite in the upper left has peculiar pitting on the surface. The shark coprolite in the bottom right shows potential striations from the spiral working of the gut, pitting and the inner coil of the spiral. The large central coprolite doesn't look to be from a shark, does show some striations from possible gut lining or gut movement/emptying and lumpy little inclusions. The two larger teeth are from the boundary of the Eastover and Calvert Formations. The remainder of the fossils are likely from the Newport News Beds (Popes Creek Sands equivalent).
  9. Fellow fossil hunters! I live in Jacksonville Beach, FL and have been collecting sharks teeth and shells on our local beaches for a decade. I have found some great teeth on the beach (mostly in the winter when the tourists have gone ) but have yet to find a megalodon tooth or even a fragment of one! My father had some beautiful meg teeth in his collection from when they would dredge for beach renourishment, St. Johns River projects, ect. So I know they are out there to find but I've never been lucky enough to come across one. Has anyone had any luck finding meg teeth in Jacksonville? If so, any tips on where to look would be GREATLY appreciated! I'm attaching a picture with a handful of my favorite finds over the years here in Jax Beach, enjoy! -Nikki
  10. I am looking for references for a professional preparator to take the matrix off the back of my newly purchased Megalodon Tooth from Chile. I have been told the matrix is like concrete and need to find someone with lots of experience.
  11. Upper or Lower Megalodon teeth

    Hey guys. I picked this tooth up recently and have delved into the world of Meg teeth. I’ve been trying to identify the position of this tooth. I am having great trouble finding a way to properly identify lower vs upper teeth. I read some things that say it’s all in the root, V shaped is lower and U shaped is upper. Other things I’ve read are no it’s all in the curve of the tooth, uppers curve outwards while lowers curve inwards. So can someone help me out and teach me how to spot the differences and properly identify these teeth? And any idea on my tooth’s position? I had it as an upper A2 initially but now I’m not so sure. It measures 6-1/16” on the slant. Thanks y’all!
  12. Hey everyone, Recently took a trip with a buddy of mine down to South Carolina to search for megalodon teeth. We found many small teeth along with some decent sized ones. These were found in the general area between Charleston and Summerville. The ruler is imperial. Big thanks to everyone who offers their guesses Pictured are three of my biggest from the whole trip. What are they?
  13. I hope everyone is enjoying their summers! I have these megalodon teeth up for trade and more, all completely natural. The approximate measurements can be seen on the ruler and I can take more exact measurements upon request. Some over 5" and 2 of them are just barely under 6". They are all from the southeast coast of the United States. Some from north and some from South Carolina. IN RETURN: I'm very interested in high quality shark teeth as well as trilobites, crabs, lobsters, fish, shrimp, cannonball ammonite nodules, keichesourus, mammal teeth, and anything else cool you may have. For shark teeth open to all kinds but especially: isurus desori teeth, ginsu shark teeth, large Cretaceous or eocene teeth, cool khazakstani teeth, high quality large hastilis, Large unrepaired otodus obliqous teeth.
  14. TFF member on Shark Week

    Last night forum member Bobby Boessenecker (@Boesse) made an appearance on Discovery channel’s Shark Week discussing Otodus megalodon. Good to see real scientists and real paleontology being shown. Nice job, and nice meg!
  15. My Collection

    New to collecting and this site, thought I’d debut my small collection in my first post. Any comments or tips would be appreciated.
  16. Hey everyone, I got a lot of great feedback with the recent image I posted of my mammoth and megalodon tooth. Here's the footage from the trip!
  17. Partial mammoth tooth and megalodon from this weekend's diving. These are my favorite pieces from a few dozen pulled up. In the last few months I've started my blackwater diving career and jumped in rivers from FL up to SC! It's been a fun ride to see what is hidden beneath the black waters of the southeast!
  18. First let me just say that my wife is awesome! Secondly, today is my birthday! My before mentioned awesome wife has surprised me with the purchase of a nice Megalodon tooth! It’s my first one! I had been recently talking about wanting to check out a website that deals in meg teeth and is run by a forum member. She took the liberty to check it out herself and correspond with the owner (since she knows nothing about fossils ) Unfortunately, due to some shipping issues it hasn’t arrived yet, but it should be here in the next few days. I was too excited to wait to share! Here is a picture from the website. I’ll post my own pics of the tooth as soon as it arrives. L1: 4.21" L2: 4.10" Width: 3.07"
  19. My biggest meg

    From the album Macro Florida Fossils

    It's a little beat up but I wouldn't trade it for the world.
  20. SC fossil trip

    Hi Everyone! I’m new here and hope to get some knowledge. I have been an avid shark tooth hunter for about 6 years. I’m looking to expand to all fossils though, I’ve done lots of research lately and would love to know more about shark tooth hunting in particular. I have mostly only been on beach to look but have researched and would love to find the bigger teeth and Megalodon teeth and whatever other fossils I can find. My question is, I will be going to Myrtle Beach in the next couple of weeks does anyone have any suggestions to go look for the teeth I mentioned above near there besides on the beach? Also I’m looking to go to Summerville soon but not on this trip. Thanks guys, I’m happy to have found this place.
  21. I have a megalodon tooth. The seller said it was recovered by a diver in N. Carolina "from the Yorktown or Hawthorne formation." It has a nice spot of coral on it. Is there any way to know if the coral is modern or a fossil also?
  22. Just A Couple Megs

    Just drawing a couple Calvert megs with pen and ink. A bit of improvement, I think
  23. Big tooth

    Big tooth found by my wife yesterday in Summerville sc sawmillbranch 4.5 long 3.5 wide
  24. Hello forum, Recently I went to Walton on the Naze and I found a nodule on the beach that contained many fossil, some quite remarkable containing a shark tooth, scales, bones, fossilized wood and many more things to excavated. At first I was not going to pick it up ,as it was heavy (20lb to be exact). But I was upset to find out that I walked past a large megalodon tooth that someone else picked up. So here I am and now have this lump of rock, I have soak it for some time, to hopefully stop or slowdown pyritization. Now in the next few days I will be starting my prepping journey. Will anyone be able to give me advice, as I'm only using Dremel's, I wont be able to afford any thing else as it will not be in my budget. Opinion WANT TO REMOVE THE FOSSIL WOOD! THE SHELL ARE CHALKY DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO TO STOP THIS FROM FALLING APART? AND PREVENTING PYRITIZATION WITH NAIL POLISH OR CLEAR VARNISH ? Here are some pictures out of many.
  25. So i have a small fossil collection and i want to learn how to study teeth and their anatomy the teeth i already have are from spinosaurus, mosasaur, carcharodontosaurus and megalodon if anyone could help me learn how to do it i would be really thankful. Thanks.
