  1. I just bought more first megalodon tooth I love it, it looks so nice on this display stand I bought! I can’t wait to buy some more shark teeth, I was always fascinated by sharks. I need to get some mako, great white teeth, and some other species now!
  2. A possible Meg?

    Zdravo ! I got this tooth from a friend who is from the Netherlands.He told me that he bought it there and the man told him that he bought a meg tooth.Tho it's not whole specimen,but i'm looking for answers! If anyone can help,that would be much appreciated!
  3. Bought this off an auction site from what I thought (and maybe is) an honest seller. Asked twice if there was ANY restoration done. Said no. The long side measures 6.12" The tooth weights 13 oz, which seems like for a tooth of this size..but...who knows. I worry that the tips of the roots were restored to add some length to push it over 6". The ends of the root almost seem like a different matte, or color black. But also, this could be because the angle changes there, and the light changes...not sure. Also, maybe the enamel? I also bought a cheap UV flashlight and nothing really stands out when I look at it....but I admit I don't know what I am looking for. I am completely new to the Meg/fossil world. Here are the pics. Thank yoU!
  4. Carcharocles megalodon 06

    From the album Sharks and their prey ....

    Carcharocles megalodon Venice Beach, Florida
  5. I just received this in the mail but the ""Certificate of Authenticity" was simply a business card stating fossilized "shark" tooth millions of years old. When I purchased the tooth it was specified Carcharocles Megalodon. Can anybody help me put my mind at ease? The tooth itself is about 4.5 inches. Thank you
  6. Hello everyone! Today, I do not have an identification request, but I do have a request for some specific pictures. I have been having a hard time finding side view pictures of posterior juvenile megalodon teeth. If any of you have these tiny megs and don’t mind snapping a side view picture for me, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
  7. Peace River first timers

    Hi all, A friend and I are down here from Jacksonville Florida. First time hunters to this area. We did Charlie’s Creek today without much luck. I’m wondering if anyone has any pointers of where to look. I realize this is last minute. But, any help would be greatly appreciated. We plan to go back out tomorrow and Saturday.

  11. (did I post in the right section, or should I move this to the general discussion forum to get more help) Hey all, Im a beginner collector, looking at buying a megalodon tooth. Since it's my first purchase, Im only looking to spend $120 max. - I would like to find a complete tooth, that is relatively pretty, 3.5 in or larger, and probably lacking any serrations at my price. Is this possible? -Does anyone have any tips for a beginner? -Does anyone have any teeth in mind? -Ive seen some 4 inch teeth that were beautiful for less than $100, why is this? 1. Here are some of the the sites Ive looked at so far. Megateeth.com sharksteeth.com darkwatermegs.com fossilera.com -Are these places reputable? -Are there any other good sites? 2. -Should I be looking on eBay? -If so who are some good sellers? -Should I "buy it now" or auction? -Ive been looking at a seller called 'thesharktoothlady', has anyone ever heard of her? Anyways, since Im new, Im not quite sure the right questions to ask, and any information would be great. Also in the very near future, Ill be asking about a spino tooth! Thanks all!! Grant
  12. Posterior Meg?

    I found this at the weekend in a creek off the Peace River in Florida. It's pretty worn, but you can still see the serrations along the edge of the crown. My initial reaction was that it was a tiny posterior megalodon. It's only 0.5" wide however. Any thoughts? The bit that confused me was that it curls up slightly when laying flat (see third photo)

  14. WOW Patuxent Megalodon Finds

    Hi folks, We had a major low tide here in Calvert County Maryland last week and beachcombers nailed these beautiful Megs on the Patuxent river according to the Maryland DNR Facebook page. The river holds excellent quality teeth as seen the photo. Just goes to prove you don’t have to to Bayfront park to find quality Megs in Maryland. Enjoy Regards Cliff Dweller
  15. Charleston/Summerville

    Hello all, I will be in the Charleston/Summerville area this weekend and a few days into the week. If anyone has any suggestions on where I can try to look for shark teeth, please let me know via PM. I can trade spot locations for some Paleozoic fossils or Mesozoic shark teeth. Next week, I will write a trip report on how things go, I am hoping to find my first tooth over 2.5”, I probably won’t get a chance to find something like that for several more years. Wish me luck!

  17. Calvert Cliffs advice

    Hi everyone! My girlfriend and I are going to attempt another trip to Calvert Cliffs next weekend. We would love to find a megalodon tooth or vertebrate fossil. We have hip wader and are thinking about going to the Matoaka Beach Cabins and walking north. We were thinking of going a few feet into the water, where larger material has been sorted, and using a sand scooper. For you seasoned experts out there, does this seem like the way to go? I would love any advice! Thanks, Peter
  18. So dry season is making slough hunting possible again. These were 12-24" down in a now dry creek bed all within about 4 linear feet of each other. And I happily complied with the rules of fossil hunting and broke the big one trying to get it out.

  20. Some of My Best Finds

    Hello everyone! Yesterday I found some of my best teeth yet. Take a look, and tell me your favorite!
  21. Hello all, I stop collecting shark teeth from the cenozoic. I offer all my shark teeth for trade here. There are 3 different location. -Antwerpen, Schelde. Collected in 1970 (not by me) -Balegem. Collected in 1986 (not by me) -Steendorp. Date not known. There is one Megalodon (Steendorp). It's about 8 cm and has all serrations. There is some damage at one side. Steendorp is a closed location were fossils from the Neogene were found. Next there is about 4,5 pound of Balegem shark and ray teeth. These were collected in 1986. There are a couple of Otodus teeth (at least 3 complete), I heard these are pretty rare, but most are from Striatolamia macrota. The biggest one is over 2 inch. This is also a closed location where fossils from the Lutetian (middle eocene) were found. Many complete teeth altough there are also broken teeth in it. No junk. The last location (Antwerp) includes about 1,1 pound of teeth that were found in the Schelde in 1970. Most teeth are broken but there are some nice small ones in it (Notorynchus, Hastalis...). (No pictures yet). At last I will throw in some teeth from Cadzand/Breskens (The Netherlands). There are waaay to many teeth to take pictures of every single one of them, so I just took some pictures of some. If interested, Pm me and I will send you more pictures. I know the pictures aren't the best, but I don't have a camera and my smartphone don't want to cooperate with me. I'm looking for: -Fish -Anything insect -Anything dinosaur (no chunkosaur) - Fossils from Liaoning or similar locations in China - Trilobites - Permian/ Triassic reptiles (teeth,jaws, bones etc.) - Anything I don't have from the KemKem Beds. -All shark teeth that are at least as old as the Cretaceous. - Fossils from the Eocene of Morocco. - ...
  22. Megalodon Teeth

    I bought these from my friend who got these from an auction years ago. He didnt know much about them. Can anybody tell me where these are most likely from due to the colours? Also if you see any obvious signs of repair you could let me know.
  23. No work today so decided to have some fun & at least cross this off my list. Being same age as Peace River/creeks (mid mio- possibly early plio) & hearing some hype about it, knew it couldn't be too shabby.. Very very shallow, like about a foot or 2 of water on average (most digging/sifting done on my knees). Surprising for a long creek. Seeing gravel on some of the banks, gut feeling I wouldn't have too hard a time finding rocks and indeed didn't for most of the spots I hit. Mostly smaller stuff, might be bigger gravel spots I'm sure, just no luck with it this time. But didn't mean I didn't find nothing noteworthy.. Early on found a unique vertebrae, looks like snake, surprised the delicate spiny processes were still intact. Mostly typical grey shark teeth from the time period (lemon, bull, tiger, snaggle) but I'm sure there's lamnids too in there. Eventually found my largest grey shark vertebrae to date, a whopper compared to my micro one in my trip to a phosphate mine! But still relatively small, almost the radius the size of a dime, bought one recently before today that dwarfs it, but still a great uncommon find in my book. Lots of trash, I suppose from decades of "good ol boys" being there, both large stuff along the banks and remnants dug up, exponentially more than Peace river & Joshua creek. But also more colorful shark teeth on average & some pretty rocks (threw back frags of red ones early on, thought it was man-made before finding more of them). Overall lighter colored rocks too than the area much farther south I'm use to digging up (fortunate I guess I live in central FL). Yeah felt like I found more than that, some holes provided more than others.. definitely felt on par with the Peace river overall, just not as scenic of course. Still, I'd go there again perhaps..
  24. Another Nice Day on the River

    After a couple of weeks of us being under the weather from an Upper Respiratory Infection, Mrs.SA2 and I decided to take the dogs and visit one of our favorite places this past Saturday. Despite the forecast for rain, we both had a great day. But, the true measure of a successful day was achieved when the totally exhausted dogs slept the entire way home. As some of you may remember, I'm still playing catch up with Mrs.SA2 as she found 5 megalodon teeth in January. Saturday, I got my 2nd of 2018, about 10 mins after we started hunting. It's a gorgeous little "hubbell" meg with nice serrations and coloring. That gives us 7 megs so far in 2018. In just the few hours we were there, I found teeth from 11 different species of sharks. Here are a few of my larger ones. Mrs.SA2 had her own bag of goodies. I'll post some photos of them when she gets them cleaned up. Along with teeth, we also found a couple of those dreaded Miocene snails called Ecphora. Even more interesting, we found 2 different species of Ecphora about 10 feet from each other. I'm sure @Fossil-Hound and @sixgill pete can appreciate just how dreaded these Ecphora can be. Mrs.SA2 found 3 of them, but mine was the largest and most complete and is the oddball with only 3 whorls. Adding these 4 to her collection, Mrs.SA2 now has 59 Ecphora specimens from MD, VA and NC. The goal is to get around 100 specimens and then donate the collection for study and curation. All in all, it was a great day and Mrs.SA2 was happy. Happy wife, happy life!!!! Cheers, SA2 and Mrs.SA2
  25. Fossil Stands

    I wasn't sure where to post this thread, but I have a few fossils that I'd like to either buy or build stands for. I have seen lots of display stands (looks like a wire frame and a metal base) for carch teeth, and mosasaur teeth- that's what I'm looking for but I cant seem to find any for sale on the internet! Not interested in the little plastic megalodon stands, I'm looking specifically for a small wire frame stand where the tooth is held in place by its natural taper. Looking specifically for spinosaurus, carch, and mosasaur tooth stands. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you! N
