  1. 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!
  2. Picked up this beautiful pathological Cuban Meg Tooth a couple days ago. It measures 5.25” with a killer twist.
  3. Hey fellow TFF Members! Accidentally posted this in the wrong section earlier.... Back again with another video and I'll get straight to it. I found one of the nicest megs I have found here in Florida! The way this thing was found is just amazing as well. Give it a watch when you get some time
  4. Hey fellow TFF Members! Back again with another video and I'll get straight to it. I found one of the nicest megs I have found here in Florida! The way this thing was found is just amazing as well. Give it a watch when you get some time
  5. This is my first trip report in quite a while. I probably need to go back and do some others to catch-up on some other neat finds. My son and I went to Gainesville yesterday with Wild Kyle. We had a great time, and productive day. I found a nice dolphin vertebra in someone’s spoil pile and my son actually dropped a posterior meg in the spoil for the next person. (I realized it was missing when we were taking a wrap up photo, and I went back and found it.) I was really excited to find the ray plate. The condition was not great, but i love finding these things fused. Kyle pointed out a croc scute in my screen that I definitely would have missed and he found part of a dugong skull cap. The nicest meg had a small crack, which broke on the way home, so I had to do a repair.
  6. Going to Cuba: need Megs!

    Hello all, I'm going to Cuba in a few weeks and, if possible, would like to acquire some Cuban megalodon teeth while over there. I've done a little research but have only turned up what the formation is called that they are generally found in. Considering that I'll only have about 3 days there, I'm not against just buying them from locals if they're available. Does anyone have any knowledge of where I should go outside of the formation itself (not even sure if I'd have access to it)? Anyone know if its possible to dig there?
  7. Upcoming Trip to Summerville

    Hello friends! I am going on a trip to Summerville to go find some fossils! The problem is that I had no idea where to look. Can anyone please comment or send me some specific locations where you have had luck finding sharks teeth (megalodon specifically)? I would really appreciate it if you all would help me out! Thanks!
  8. Found these fossils at a construction site in Venice Florida. Can I get some help identifying? It would be much appreciated. As a side note I found the huge Megalodon there as well. I think one is an alligator scale? One is a joint of some sort? And one is the tail bone of a dugong? And one is a jawbone with teeth ( feline )? What say all? thanks in advance
  9. INSANE Megalodon Shark Tooth Hunt

    Hey TFF Members! Got another insane video for you here! We had some friends join us for some shark tooth hunting and we struck pure gold! It was great to share the passion with good folks, and hopefully inspire their kids to be future fossil enthusiasts! Give the video a watch when you can. I'll also post a photo of some of the best teeth below!
  10. Since the weather is (finally) behaving and the Peace River water level has now stabilized at a depth where South Florida fossil hunters can get in and get their hunt on, Tammy and I found a free day in our busy schedule and planned a day trip to Arcadia to try our luck on the Peace River again. If we do not drive over and spend the night in a local hotel, hunting on the Peace River involves an early morning wake-up call at the painfully early hour of 3:00 AM. We're all packed up and leaving the house at just around 4:00 AM with a long quiet drive through mostly empty highways--up the Florida Turnpike to the aptly named Beeline Hwy which makes a beeline straight northwest for the town of Okeechobee at the northern tip of Lake Okeechobee (the large lake that looks like it was hole punched out of the map of Florida). A stop for something approximating breakfast at the 24-hour Micky D's in Okeechobee (bring a jacket if you go because the AC is set for 60F ) and then it's a straight show west on State Road 70 into Arcadia. When we arrive we make a quick stop for a bag of ice for our cooler and a few snacks for the day. Then we roll into Canoe Outpost to fill out our paperwork and wait for the bus to take us to the put-in location. As we had a free day to make this trip on a Tuesday, Canoe Outpost is far from busy--in fact we are the only ones there save two employees who had to come in early to tend to our canoe rental needs. Today's hunting area of choice is on the lower half of the normal full-day rental. Usually, we put in at Brownville Park some 8.5 miles upstream of the Canoe Outpost dock and we stop at various locations along the way. We wanted to focus on some spots downstream from their half-day put-in location at the primitive campground area that is owned by Canoe Outpost (called Oak Hill). We've wanted to get dropped off here on some weekends when we only wanted to hunt along the lower 4 miles of the river above Arcadia but usually they have others going to Brownville on the 8:00 AM run and we just end up getting put-in there. We spend the first hour paddling the 4.5 miles down to the half-day put-in. This time we were lucky--nobody else was signed-up to go out at 8:00 AM so they were accommodating enough to put us in at the halfway point and save us an hour of paddling. We enjoy the peaceful paddling down the river looking for birds and spotting gators along the banks but the thought of saving an hour of paddle time was too good to pass up--more time for sifting. We made it down to the spot where we had found some nice armadillo bits two weeks before--a tooth and an astragalus from Holmesina septentrionalis a two meter beastie clocking in at around 250 kg. According to Dr. Hulbert specimens from this species are pretty rare in South Florida and the astragalus that we found last trip is earmarked for the FLMNH next time we are in Gainesville as the museum does not have any specimens of this bone from this species in its collection. We were hoping to possibly find some additional Holmesina bits though that was a long shot at best. We poked around the site chasing down areas with nice chunky gravel hoping to find some nice items and though we struck out extending our Holmesina finds we did come across a few nice items. On only the first handful of screens, a familiar triangular shape appeared in the sifting screen. Though the root was a bit dinged, this meg tooth that topped out at just about 3 inches is just shy of the 3.25 inch size that most teeth seem to max out at in the Peace River. A little while later a beautifully shaped smaller meg (just under 2 inches) turned up in the sifting screen. Here are some in situ (well, in sifter anyway) images of those teeth at the moment they revealed themselves. A little while later (after many smaller shark teeth and broken megs--fraglodons) we turned up one of the larger Carcharhinus teeth I've seen come from the Peace River. It was a nice surprise to see such a large example of a requiem shark tooth. No more interesting shark teeth turned up though we did find quite a number of the normal nickel and dime (size) teeth which will end up in an ever growing jar of teeth on display in the family room. Two other novelties helped to make the day a successful hunt in the record books. I turned up a tiny unerupted tooth that I believe to be tapir peccary though I've never seen one with six cusps (two small ones off one side). EDIT: Fixed ID, see below. As with many of these teeth the hollow nature of the tooth and fragile roots mean that usually only the enamel crown are recovered--at least this pretty little thing is solidly in one piece. The other tooth is a bit of a mystery. I'm sure @Harry Pristis will likely recognize this as it looks reasonably distinctive. The tooth looks like it has a complete crown (no parts missing) but it only has a trace of the roots left. Looking at the photos I can see that there are cracks forming on this tooth and it looks like it is ready to disarticulate into a puzzle of pieces. I think I'll be attempting to consolidate this item a bit with some B72. There is less than a month to go before the official start of rainy/hurricane season in June. Hoping to find some time in my schedule to make it back out to the river a few more times. It's been an extremely shortened season this year but the few finds we have been able to make have been enjoyable. Cheers. -Ken
  11. 3.25" Lower Megalodon - Calvert Cliffs, MD

    From the album Cartier's favoroite fossils

    My first Meg tooth. Found at Calvert Cliffs...wading in the Chesapeake...at night with a headlamp...in December...and it was raining. Did I mind. I did not!
  12. Mexico Meg Teeth

    Has anyone seen Meg teeth from Mexico? I'm currently working in Mexico and one of my coworkers is trying to sell me a big Meg tooth that looks very similar to the North Carolina teeth.
  13. Had a quick walk down the beach the other day and it was actually pretty successful! Not many finds but they were all pretty sizeable! The largest one was half buried underneath the Johnny Mercer pier. It looked whole, and man I wish it was! Any ID ideas for the cusped tooth corner?
  14. Savannah land based question

    I'm fortunate to have gained access to a friend's large, private sand/clay pit here in the Savannah area. I spent a couple of hours last weekend exploring one of them after some rains we had late in the week. I walked a lot of the place, looking for any clues in the strata about where to start - honestly, the size is a bit overwhelming. Looking for megalodon teeth. Found one small piece of a meg tooth buried in the dirt on the main ramp, but that was all. It's about 75ft deep in the bottom so the bone layers I'd probably want to search might be on the sides. Looking at the pics does anyone have any suggestions? Hoping to go back with a better effort soon. Thanks guys!
  15. 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!
  16. Hello everybody So I would like to trade one of my Megalodon tooth. It one solid tooth and pretty symmetrical on both sides. They measure 13,6 cm (5.35 in). Display stand is included in the trade and shipping worldwide is possible. It is from the Hawthorn Group in North Carolina Only downside is, that there are no fine serrations present on the tooth. I hope the pictures do it justice. If more pictures are needed, just ask I'm looking for Dinosaur material/teeth, especially Theropod teeth. Teeth from North America are very welcomed but not only from there. Let's just see what you got. Any offer is welcome and highly appreciated. If you want it, but don't think you got the stuff I'm looking for to trade, PM me nevertheless. Let me see what you have to offer and we'll see While we're at it. Also got some Fish to trade from Solnhofen.

  18. Real Or Fake Megalodon Tooth?

    Hi everyone, I just purchased this megalodon from the fossil store I work at (they are very kind trustworthy people). It looks pretty real to me and microscope pictures look real too (I can include if needed) I wasn't skeptical until I saw how uniform the broken basal looked. I heard fakes are usually perfect but maybe this fake is broken so people would assume it wasn't a fake? Anyways, everything looks pretty nice and real and there is even a slightly visible white spot under the black on the front of the tooth (where maybe the real enamel underneath is showing.) Please, any feedback would be great.
  19. Hey TFF Members! It's been a while since we found some larger teeth, but it finally happened again! This time Cris and I took some friends from out of state fossil hunting for a chance for their 8 year old son to find himself a big Megalodon tooth. Not only did he find one... but three BIG teeth were found overall! It was a pleasure to be able to help them find these teeth. Something they don't get where they live. It may have hurt just a little though hahaha! But those teeth will mean more to our little buddy Rob than they ever will to us. He'll remember this forever. I know I would have! Give it a watch when you have a chance!
  20. Megalodon tooth to find

    Hello everybody, my name is Alex and I come from Germany. My English is bad, I translated this text with Google, so please don't laugh about it :-) I have tried several times in my vacation to find shark teeth especially Megalodon tooth, unfortunately until now without success :-( In this vacation I would like to finally make it . I have already prepared a little, watched many videos, learned many tips and tricks, but unfortunately I lack a few crucial prerequisites. I don't know Florida, which means I don't know where to look. I know the beaches like Caspersen Beach and I will search them thoroughly again. Much more I'm interested in a search in a creek, tributary of Peace River. Who could give me some info on that? Where to search legally in Peace River? (does not wish to violate the law) Are there any dangerous animals there? Crocodiles? (I'm afraid to be eaten) Have I seen a contribution that many fossils are found on construction sites or unpaved roads, does anyone know such a place? If you would like to give me more tips and information, I would be very grateful. Greetings from Germany
  21. 26th Annual Aurora Fossil Festival

    Well everyone, it's that time of year again. It is almost time the the Aurora Fossil Festival. I know many Forum members have attended in the past and I hope many more will show this year. Lots of fun and you get to search the world famous piles at the museum! Several of our local members will be displaying fossils in the community center as well. Hope to see as many of you there as possible. Saturday May 25th. http://aurorafossilfestival.net/
  22. Fake or Real Megalodon?

    I work at a fossil and mineral store and they own a 3.5 - 4.0 inch megalodon tooth (the basal of the tooth is broken slightly but its still beautiful) The serrations are smooth but visible, the bourlette is defined and a darker color than the enamel. However I have my doubts about buying it. They went to a fossil show in Colorado years ago and bought it from someone at a stand (none of my employees or boss are "fossil savvy".) I'm worried about spending $ on a fake megalodon tooth. I work this Saturday and will upload photos of me holding it from the case before I decide to buy it. I saw no seams on it from a possible mold but it just seems too cheap for the size. Its color is all black, which is a good sign but those can be easily faked too. I know, nobody can determine until I post a picture, However I did want to ask if there was any specific way people use to identify if a megalodon is fake or real? I heard megalodon teeth are cold to the touch and the plastics are slightly warmer.
  23. I’m Located in Savannah, GA but take day trips to Summerville, SC often. We find very good teeth here in Savannah including Megs at our more secret islands on the banks. I usually go with my wife and son but I wanted to find better spots in Summerville to take my kid instead of taking the boat to the islands. Would anybody want to swap spots with me? I would take you on the boat to the islands we hunt from if I can get some inside where to go in summerville.
  24. Hi, I'm seeking info. I found this about 15 kilometers inland from the Sea of Cortez and 15 kilometers south of Los Barriles, Baja Sur, Mexico. It was on a steep hillside above a small sandy wash or arroyo which will later flow into another and then the Sea, maybe 75 meters elevation. The person who took me to this gully said he has found Megalodon teeth here. It literally looks like a one kilo stack of tortillas, same size, dimension and layering. It's about 20 centimeters in diameter and 5 centimeters tall. I have found whale discs before but only on fresh skeletons and this does look similar but perhaps it's just a sedimentary deposit. I also found what appeared to be a rib about one meter in length but broken into about 8 pieces along with a few other pieces that didn't look like they belonged. I'm not sure about the geology. Appeared be banded horizontal layers with a surprising amount of some type of crystal that looked like selenite or calcite.
  25. Possible Megalodon Chunk?

    Hi! I’m an amateur fossil hunter from the southern coast of GA. While on a dredged Island, I encountered a fragment of something. I believe this could be a carchorodon megalodon tooth fragment because of it’s smooth “enamel”, sandy texture, and thinkness. Dozens of megalodon teeth have been found in this area. Thoughts? This would help a lot!
