  1. So I have a few days off duty and I'm planning on making a long weekend out of it. I'm starting tomorrow in Aurora, NC at the museum's spoil piles. This will be a first, so any suggestions are appreciated. Saturday I will be going to the Charelston, SC area to try my luck again. I was looking for advice in this area. I have done a ton of research with little success. I don't expect someone to give exact locations to their honey holes but advise would be great! Also anyone interested in joining would be welcome. Finally, a few days of free diving the bone yard in Venice, FL.... That's home! Any advice, suggestions, or anyone interested in joining please chime in. I'll post pics as it happens. Thanks in advance, Justin
  2. I just put together a new Megalodon tooth mini display case... The tooth is 5.3 inches from Carolina. I put smaller damaged teeth around the bottom. I got the shadow box from Hobby Lobby. It is an unusual shadowbox because it has glass all around the sides. I got the image background from the American Museum of Natural History. I plan to make at least one other similar display case for other fossils, with different picture backgrounds.
  3. Hi guys, this some miocenic vetrebas and megs preaparation
  4. I found this tooth in June 2017 diving in a GA river. its is right at 5.0" and one of the nicest I have found!
  5. Fossil divers do it in the mud... or rocks... or sand... pretty much anywhere there's teeth. The point is, we crawl over a lot of stuff in the course of a dive. This weekend I was doing the normal thing looking for teeth while tyring to appear unappetizing to any passing sharks or gators when something scrunched under my right kneepad. I crawl over about a million and five rocks each dive, and usually ignore stuff like this, but that little fossil angel that straddles my tank said, "Better check that one out." So I did, and doggone it, that was a tooth down there! 3.9" fresh out of the clay. Thank you sir, I'll have another! (It looks bigger than 3.9" because I have tiny hands)
  6. I've gone to Gainesville a few times and I haven't found many megalodon teeth, a bunch of fragments is about it. Anyways I'm going for a nice megalodon tooth. I'm not asking you guys to give up a spot but what kind of material should I look in to find a good preserved fossil? Like a good size megalodon or a horse tooth or anything of that nature. I have found that the rock rich spots have lots of smaller shark teeth but nothing big. I've seen some people look in a clay like material and find good preserved fossils but what should I look for? I need some help thanks
  7. Hello I am newbie and I think right now to buy me a very beautiful tooth I wanted your opinion on this tooth I know it is very beautiful but I wonder if the blue spot can be considered a defect or not?
  8. Just received pictures of my Cuban megalodon tooth that is nearly finished being restored. The tooth is one of the nicest I have ever seen. Here are before and after pictures.
  9. I spent a FANTASTIC day at the Stratford Hall cliffs yesterday courtesy of Mid Atlantic Fossil and Nature Trips. HUGE thanks to Cathy for organizing the outing as it was one of the best days I can remember having (collecting or otherwise!) Found a great many teeth during the 4 hours (particularly for a relative newcomer). Favorites of the day were the nice croc at top, a few of the more complete hemis, my first makos, and.... the VERY partial Meg at far left under the bottle cap. I saw the root sticking out of the sand, my heart skipped a beat, and then I discovered, much to my dismay, that almost the entire tooth was broken off. Oh well, I'll save the intact tooth for next time!!
  10. From the album Pisces

    13cm. edge length. From the Miocene deposits on the North Carolina coast near Wrightville. A gift from a friend.
  11. Hello all! This is my latest megalodon repair:
  12. Just arrived back from Cuba. Here are my finds. All of them need to be cleaned and restored. If anyone is interested in trade message me. This is my best find 5.8", needs some restoration.
  13. Hi everyone, Here are multiple repairs I just made to megalodon teeth. For some of them I forgot to take before pictures, The blue tooth has a completely reconstructed left side of the root, and a chunk of the blade and enamel are repaired.
  14. Hi all, I've this odd shark tooth and the seller told me it was a Megalodon, just wanted to double check. It looks pathological if it is a megalodon and comes from a river in Georgia. The size is 3.8". Thank you for your help!
  15. Hello all! This is my fifth attempt at repairing a megalodon tooth. Below are all the photos of the process. If anyone has broken megs like this one and wants to give them away, then send me a PM.
  16. I was skimming the bottom and came to a spot with several big bone chunks. I thought, "There's gotta be a meg here. GOT to." Sure enough. A few seconds later, I stumbled on this beauty. 4 1/4"
  17. Hello all, I was wondering on how to proper measure a fossil sharks tooth. Is it with or length, and is it from the longest points? Thanks for any reply.
  18. Hi all! This is my fourth attempt at repairing a megalodon tooth. If anyone is looking to get rid of any teeth that are broken like this one, don't hesitate to send me a PM because I am always looking to get more teeth to work with. Enjoy! I am always open to any advice anyone can offer on how to make more authentic looking teeth. I am in the wilds of Maine, so it would take too long to post all of the pictures of it now. I will do so later. Here are just the before and after of the front.
  19. Hi all! This is my third attempt at repairing a megalodon tooth.

  20. Hi all! This is my second attempt at repairing a megalodon tooth. This one had sever damage to both sides of the root as well as to the blade of the tooth. Overall I am pleased with the repair, except for the rough patches on the left side of the blade.

  21. Some new finds including my first "half a meg".
  22. Hi everyone, I recently acquired this big megalodon tooth and I was wondering if it is possible to restore a tooth with this much damage? I was also wondering if people had any recommendations on where I could possibly send it to get it restored at a reasonable price.
  23. Hi all, I plan on being in the Charleston SC area next week. I've seen some of the other posts about fossil hunting near where I am staying and I plan on going to those sites and tours. Anyone have any tips in general? Or places near Charleston that are worth visiting. I'm going to be staying at Isle of Palms, which is right next to Charleston. (If this has been posted before and I just looked over it a link is also much appreciated.) Thanks;
