  1. Pie Day on the Peace

    My mom is in town escaping the colder weather in Chicago and visiting the Boca house probably for the last time (we're moving to Gainesville, FL in a few months). We'd been talking about taking her out fossil hunting on the Peace River for some time but the last couple of years have been relatively short fossil hunting seasons with the water level on the Peace remaining too high for most of the normal "dry season". This year her visit corresponded well with perfect conditions for an outing on the Peace. The last time we were out was during the week between Christmas and New Year when our friends had their daughter in town. The river was about 2.5 feet higher then and we couldn't get to the deeper site that I wanted to visit which has chunkier gravel with lots of dugong rib bones and a chance of finding some larger fossils. I went walked into that site up to my shoulders and decided that spot was a no-go for that trip. Conditions this visit were much more conducive for hunting in the chunky gravel. Here's the trip report from our last visit: http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/topic/101024-peace-river-trip-before-the-new-year-decade/ We rented our canoes from Canoe Outpost as usual and put in at Brownville Park for our normal 8.5 mile run back down to Arcadia. We hoped to meet up with new forum member @Jen Morris but the timing didn't work out. We had a schedule to keep and had to move down from the big well-known gravel bed just downstream from Brownville to hit some other spots and still be able to get the canoes back before 5:00 p.m. (we were in with 5 minutes to spare). This trip we took our friend's granddaughter, Destiny, with us to fill out a small flotilla of two canoes. Destiny had been wanting to fossil hunt the Peace since moving back to Florida from the Pacific Northwest. After to abbreviated fossil hunting seasons in South Florida this season all the planets aligned and she was able to make the trip with us on her quest to find a meg tooth (a common goal for first time fossil hunters in Florida). We spent nearly 4 hours at the well-known and well-hunted gravel bed just down from the boat ramp at Brownville Park and it took us some time to prospect around and find some productive gravel. A couple months back on our previous visit we did pretty good here with a horse tooth and camelid tooth (but only tiny meg fragments). Though there were not the usual "bomb craters" and huge discard piles that we usually see at this site in the river indicating lots of recent hunting pressure, we had to prospect around quite a bit before we started finding more than just the common tiny shark teeth--even turtle shell and dugong bones were being elusive. Just before our planned lunch break around noon (cold leftover homemade pizza from the night before ) we hit paydirt with Destiny shouting out when a nearly complete meg showed up in her sifting screen. That was matched in kind pretty quickly when my mom joined the Meg Club a few minutes later. We decided that we had worked this site well enough for the day and decided to put a little more distance behind us and paddle for a while to get a bit closer to our destination in Arcadia. We made it down to the spot with the chunky gravel. This is a spot on a large sandbar. Previous to Hurricane Irma the top of this sandbar was just that--sand! The gravel area was limited to a small strip on the leading edge of this sandbar where the bottom rose up from much deeper water. It was a limited area but has delivered interesting fossils from time to time (like over 2 dozen cetacean tympanic bullae in a few hours). Post Irma we found the site deeper with the top couple of feet of sand peeled off and transported further downstream. While this makes the site more difficult to access during deeper water, it revealed that the gravel seam along the leading edge was just the margin of a much more extensive gravel bed that covers much of the top of this presently lowered sandbar. It is deeper on the upstream side and shallows as you walk downstream on it. Though the temps were very warm--near if not reaching 90F (32C)--the rest of our group didn't feel like venturing into water over waist deep and so I used my fiberglass probe to hunt around for some gravel in the shallower depths. It took me a bit of prospecting till I found the sort of very chunky gravel that this site is famous (to me) for. At this site it is not uncommon to dig up a chunk of matrix rock filling the entire shovel. These bowling ball boulders are shot-putted away from where we are digging a far enough distance that we are not soaked with the ensuing kerplunk of a splash. We turned up some additional nearly complete meg teeth and enough dugong rib bone pieces to pave a driveway. The finds here are less frequent with the smaller shark teeth being almost absent. The gravel is generally much larger here golf ball to softball size and so there are fewer but larger finds to be had. We scored a nice glyptodont osteoderm to go with the partial Holmesina osteoderm we found at the first stop. Destiny scored a really nice bison tooth and a very cool pharyngeal crushing plate covered with phyllodont enamel teeth from a wrasse or bonefish. It was getting toward the end of the day and the Earth's gravity had quite obviously undergone a recent local surge as the shovels of gravel and sand were getting noticeably heavier than they'd been at the start of the day. We had just about run out of time to be able to paddle our way down the last stretch back to Arcadia and our cars which awaited us with towels and a dry change of clothing. We were finishing up our last few screens and where I was digging the gravel was tapping out to just sand and the annoying sticky gray clay that makes digging and sifting a pain. I looked upstream and noticed that I had without realizing it worked my way about 20 feet from where I had left my probe to mark where I had first found this nice chunky gravel. I decided to return to where I had first found this nice chunky stuff and finish my last couple of screens there. While digging in this larger material you have to get the tip of your shovel down between the larger pieces of rock. This usually requires putting one foot on the edge of the shovel and leaning in some body weight while wiggling the top of the shovel around as the tip navigates down between the rocks so that you can scoop up a full load into the sifting screen. Quite often the bowling ball size chunks that pave the bottom here will fall off the shovel or become uncovered by digging around them and they will need to be pulled up and tossed away so digging can proceed. I could feel one loose piece that was located directly between my feet. I could detect a bit of the shape with one foot on either side and it seemed familiar (yes, I have feet that are trained to detect fossils ). The water was just shallow enough that I could bend down and grab hold of it with one hand. I told Tammy to pull out the camera. She gave me that look like "Really?" and I nodded my head. In hindsight, it would have been more funny as a video clip but we ended the day with a special find so my mom would remember this Pie Day (3/14) on the Peace River--a nearly 7 pound (3 kg) Colombian Mammoth tooth! Here are a couple of post-trip photos of some of the other interesting finds. A really sweet Glyptotherium and partial Holmesina osteoderm, a nice piece of softshell turtle carapace, and what appears to be part of the jaw of the Long-beaked Dolphin. Cheers. -Ken
  2. Hello, can anyone help me to understand if this tooth is original, a copy or restored?
  3. English Cliff Meg

    Hello all! Headed down the local beach after work, had a little look over the London Claybeds but nothing good was about. Headed up the beach to the red crag cliffs which have been collapsing a lot. Started looking over the slump piles at the bottom of the cliff picking up a few small teeth and bits of ray plate. Scrambled up the slump pile a little bit to the phosphate nodule bed and spotted this in the sand...oooo I thought, that looks interesting. Dug it out and with a bit of spit this soon appeared. Was only 74mm long but was in a lovely condition for a red crag tooth. Spent another ten minutes in the slumps but my hunger got the better of me and I headed home. Thanks for reading everyone!
  4. Hi everyone, For a long time, I've wanted to find a Megalodon tooth. I'm from Toronto, where they don't exist. However, I have a trip to the South coming up, where I understand there are some prime locations. It's a trip primarily for business, but I'll have one full day to spend on my Megalodon hunt. I would therefore ideally want to pick a single site. I did my research and my understanding now is that some of the beaches near Charleston, SC are prime. It would be helpful to get some first-hand accounts from you guys, though. The blue area is where I'm already planning to go. Suggestions for Megalodon sites in that range are preferable. The purple area is where I can extend my trip if the sites therein are meant to be particularly fruitful. I would appreciate any suggestions on the most promising Megalodon-hunting areas in this region. The only real barrier is that I won't have access to a boat, so anything offshore isn't doable. Thank you, Bellamy
  5. Hey everyone, I'm new to the site so hopefully I read all the posting rules correctly. Having said that, I was given this meg tooth as a gift. I am unsure however if it is real as it's missing the serrated edges and has a remarkable polish that gives it a glassy texture. I am not aware of any restoration methods or what not when it comes to selling to the general public so I can only go off my own knowledge of meg teeth. It's also heavier than my phone. Is there anyone who could maybe point out some red flags (or green ones!) to let me know if she was sold a replica? I can also add more images if need be. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/1bcvrtv7m6d7q13/AAD-RcmDpOCMgeJ6aJ_Xh40Pa?dl=0 Please click that link to view all 6 images. (For some reason I can't upload them here)
  6. Storm Dennis Megs

    Got up nice and early to beat any other fossil enthusiasts who may be heading to the beach. However due to storm Dennis hitting the UK I didn’t need to as it was raining cats and dogs and rather windy! Anyway, got down to the red crag cliffs that have taken a hammering in the strong winds we have been having the past month. Within the first ten minutes found a heart brake half Meg, shame cause it was 94mm long. Found a smaller 59mm well polished Meg about ten yards away and thought I was going to be in for a Meg tooth filled day! However that was not the case, only other decent find was a nice 61mm Otodus. Few more small Isurus teeth and other bits n bobs but nothing amazing. I did spend an hour looking for the other half of the first Meg but to no avail.... (Apologies about the sideways images and any neck injuries that may occur whilst looking at them) Thanks for reading everyone!
  7. Megalodon tooth mystery

    Hi, bought this Megalodon tooth recently from the Hawthorn Formation in South Carolina. I noticed it had this ridges on the side, wondered if anyone knew what they were from. Thanks.
  8. Okay, I posted this yesterday and I’m not sure if it was that it was too long winded, in the wrong spot, or both. So, I will attempt to boil it down. There was a post on this topic in 2011 but I feel like there’s certainly more knowledge on this now. 1. What formations are megalodon teeth coming from? The plausible ones are the Parachucla (22ma), Marks Head (18ma), and Goose Creek Lime (3.5ma), all within the umbrella Hawthorn formation. The CofC Museum lists almost every specimen as coming from the Goose Creek Lime, yet the hottest spots at best have the Raysor formation(2.5ma) exposed. 2. Are said spots only good underwater where the river has cut through to the former three? 3. Is material between the Marks Head and Goose Creek era extant in any areas? People have suggested that the size of some teeth would place them in the middle of these two time periods, unless there’s reason to believe they’re reworked. 4. Wanting to see pictures of the formations mentioned (excluding Marks Head which is only subsurface), in addition the Wando and Chandler Bridge formations if anyone has pictures lying around.
  9. Tooth

    Reeled this is 7-8 years ago out of the broad river in Beaufort, SC about 7 miles inland from the port royal sound.
  10. Meg tooth

    I am looking to get a big Megalodon tooth and I’m looking for help on if this is a good price. It is 6.07 inches long and 4 and a half wide. It is not repaired or restored. The asking price is ..., is that a good deal? Thankyou
  11. Fossil ID Chubutensis

    Hi! I'm looking to buy a good Chubutensis tooth, and I came across this online. It's listed by a seller with a very good reputation, but I know that Megalodon teeth are often mistaken for Chubutensis teeth. I'd therefore like to have some seasoned shark tooth collectors help verify the ID of this tooth (I always like to double-check ) Note: It was found in South Carolina. Thanks in advance!
  12. Hi, amateur here! Many years back I purchased a Megalodon tooth on online. What I'm wondering is if this tooth has been altered in any way. There is a part of the root that is quite dark, which concerns me as I've heard this can be a sign of restoration. Also since I can't remember exactly what I purchased this for, what would be a good approximate price nowadays? Note: The tooth is roughly 4,5 inches. (Not easy to see here, but the middle part of the root is slightly darker than the rest of the root) Thanks in advance!
  13. Found in a land spot not too far from North Charleston. Only chunks but I’m still happy with them. Wondering if this is a meg tooth or another shark, also wondering if it’s possible age based on size. Serration on the side.
  14. Another English Meg!

    Good evening everyone! Quickly headed out to the local beach after work before storm Brendan hit, few little teeth before this caught my eye. 81mm and very worn, typical English Meg. Also found what I think is a partial crocodile scute from the London clay beds? If so it’s a first for me! Thanks all!
  15. Im a starter who is still in school,about 16 so I cant afford high prices(plus the expensive shipping to where i live) Can anyone please PM me some sellers or give me some advice as I explore the internet for more?
  16. Megalodon?

    Found this in the river in North Carolina, pretty sure it's my first meg.
  17. So I recently made a post showing some of the teeth I pulled from the Peace River over the holiday break at the end of 2019 ( link below ). I love Megalodon teeth with a passion. Like many other hunters, they are my goal when I go out fossil hunting. I have found though that river teeth are much more fragile and lighter than most land found teeth. I'm not sure if that is due to properties in the water. Maybe over time the rivers wash away some of the minerals in the teeth making them more fragile and worn down. Either way after my 3 day river hunt I was happy with the haul of Meg teeth that I had found but only 2 out of the 29 teeth I found made it to the keep pile. The rest hit the broken bin for later projects. Feeling dissatisfied with the quality of my finds I set out for one more day of hunting. Christmas day was perfect. The weather was nice and I had a new land site in mind that I wanted to explore. So I left early in the morning so that I could explore as much as possible for the whole day. After about an hour hike I came across this vein of rock that looked to be a layer of fossils. I mostly found worn down Dugong bones and fragments but I knew that meant Megalodon was not far behind. After about 20 minutes of searching this area I found my first tooth I have learned from hunting land sites how easy it is to stay in one spot once you find one tooth. You think "oh this area is so large I should stay here and hunt. If I found one, there are more here." But land sites I have found are not like the rivers. Fossils don't collect in one spot like they do in moving water. So I chose to explore more of the new area so that I wouldn't miss out on other finds. After 6 hours of finding nothing but one more broken meg and a few small teeth, I chose to loop back to my first and only good spot of the day to search it for one more hour before heading home. I chose to take my time in this spot and really look at the gravel and dirt. I had found one good tooth in this area so there must be others. However what I thought was an untouched area turned out to not be. While in my last hours of hunting time I spotted two other hunters staring at the ground just like me on the top of a hill. Little did they know I had already looked at the area they were searching. I lost some faith that I would find much in this area now knowing that other people already knew about this spot and were hitting it, however I still searched for a while. I think it's fair to say that when land hunting most fossil hunters including myself only surface collect. It's too hot and time consuming to dig in one spot looking for teeth. It's much better to let mother nature wash them from the sand and gravel as it rains. Seeing that this area had been hunted before I realized why I was not seeing many teeth on the surface of these gravel piles. Either way I used my last hour well, looking in the cracks and water run off areas in the hills where teeth would collect as they get washed out and then all of a sudden I spotted a very exciting looking rock poking out of the side wall of one of these erosion points. I dug around the rock and to my surprise and excitement it was exactly what I was hoping for. A fully intact and untouched Megalodon tooth. Out of all of my Bone Valley teeth I have only ever found one that I would consider almost perfect. It has all of the serrations and a fully intact root with a beautiful marbled grey and blue coloration. However like most Bone Valley teeth it has a tip ding. That is part of Bone Valley though since it was a baby Meg Nursery full of food to crunch their teeth on. So when this new tooth came out of the sand on Christmas day it was the perfect gift for all those hours out on the hunt. It is fully intact with only some small feeding damage on the top right side of the tooth, it even has the tip!! This tooth measures 4.25 inches, making it now my biggest and most complete tooth yet. I am so happy with this find. However it dried sort of dark greenish brown so I am thinking of setting it out in the sun to let it lighten up. The part that had been exposed to the sun is really nice and white so maybe more sun will bring out those nice colors. Let me know if you think that is a good idea or not. Here's a link to the river hunt I posted the other day.
  18. Shark Tooth ID

    Can any one tell me what shark came from and if it might have came from a Megalodon?
  19. Peace river Jackpot

    It had been a while since my last good fossil hunting trip so I was very excited to have free time over most of December. I had three free days the week before Christmas and I made use of everyone of them. The first day I went out with the goal of trying new areas that I had not tried before, so I spent most of day one trying new locations and coming up with only one good spot that produced some nice smaller teeth but nothing too amazing shark tooth wise. I did however find my first Tapir tooth but the root structure was missing. The next day out was spent mostly adventuring through other new areas with little luck except for right at the end of the day when I found my first 3 whole Meg teeth of the trip. I came across a large gravel deposit with large rocks mixed into the pile. I scanned over the gravel pile to see if I could surface spot a tooth and sure enough down in the water was this staring back at me. These finds are the reason I decided to make the 2 hour drive for a third time that week. I was already very tired from 2 full days of hunting with little luck but finding 3 nice teeth right at the end of the second day made me want to explore this new area even more. So I headed out for a third time and made it a goal to only hunt this new section of river. I was not disappointed by my choice to go out again. I had planned to only go for half the day as my legs were chaffed from the waders from days 1 and 2 but the spot I was in was too amazing to leave early. I found a nice honey hole within the first 2 hours out and decided to try a few other spots with little luck. I decided to just dig the honey hole for the rest of the day and its surrounding areas. The teeth that came out of this spot were amazing. Meg after Meg piece came out of this hole. In one of my last few screens came my collection heart breaker. The big tooth pictured below measures 4.25 inches as is from the highest edge to the tip. It's a shame that this tooth was so beat up but at least it was mother nature that did the damage and not me. I also found what I think is a Bison tooth right next to the Meg I found by sight in the water. Correct me if I am wrong, I'm not sure on my identification. (PS: I screen shot my river pics because I am not sure if the forum removes meta data from the photos before adding them to a post.)
  20. Cream Meg and corals/sponges

    On December 28th I had a chance to do a little searching at Brownies. Spent most of the day in a gentle rain but found a variety of the usual suspects. More than anything, it was amazing to be on the water in the fog and rain. Super quiet and beautiful. In the shark department, I was stoked to find this 3.1" Meg (uncleaned) in situ. It keeps getting lighter, so I suspect it will be near white once done. I also came across some of these corals/sponges. One has a nice cup on it that looks to have been oriented upwards along with a barnacle, like a sponge. Any thoughts on ID? They look to have come from Zone 10:
  21. Venice dive trip 12/28

    Finished the last dive of the year off Venice with my first complete mammoth tooth and a few small megs to top it off.
  22. Unusual Markings Shark Tooth

    Hi, This question is between categories. Has anyone seen markings (numbers) on a shark tooth like this? I have tried to wipe them off with acetone, and they will not come off. Any idea how they were applied or how to remove them?
  23. Hello, I was able to purchase my first fossil ever, and its a megalodon teeth, while i do trust the place sells authentic stuff, i am always doubting whether the things i buy are real or not. it would be great if someone is able to to identify whether if this is real to me. Thanks!
  24. Hi everyone, You have been overwhelming helpful in previous posts. Thank you! A local person is wanting to sell this tooth. He says it is from the Cooper River. L1 is 5.81, L2 is 5.64 and W is 4.52. It weighs 15.6 oz. I looked at it under UV and magnifying glass, and it looked legit. Do you think it is real or fake?
