  1. Headed to Post Oak with @Buffalo Bill Cody Was a record day for Ptychodus for me with a total of 8 teeth found. Also found 2 good looking mammal teeth not sure what the first smaller one is as it didn't resemble anything I came across online the second is bison/cow leaning towards cow after the revelation in Codys post. Also found this cool Rexall Drug Store bottle with a glass stopper that Cody found later(almost prefect fit).
  2. I found the pictured fossil on the Potomac River at Westmoreland. It is broken & worn, which makes me question what this is. Can anyone verify whether or not this is in Megalodon or another type of shark tooth? Are their features of this piece that makes anyone think one way or another? Thanks!
  3. New to the hobby but def hooked! Started off while I was tdy to Charleston and I admit that I have been spoiled by that but I'm not discouraged. Spent a few hours at big brook and shark river over the last few days. It was slim pickings but better than striking out. Would love to meet up with people.
  4. My wife and I decided to go to Florida and stay with her mom the week before this last xmas. I really love hunting the Peace River and got in a 2 day overnight hunt while I was down there. I ventured out Monday early morning from the Canoe Outpost who dropped me off at Gardner ramp. Nothin better than a day of huntin and a night time campfire on the Peace! The next morning I met up with my wife and mom in law at the Brownville ramp in their canoe. I quickly showed them my finds to get them psyched up for hunting and then headed out for some spots. This was my wife and mom in law's 2nd time on the river so I was hoping the few spots I know of on that river stretch would produce some fun stuff for us. We found some productive spots where everyone was finding stuff. Everyone had a great time. After packing everything up and heading to the airport for home that Thursday before xmas we find out that morning our flight was cancelled due to the airline not finding a crew to pilot the plane????? The airline's next flight was offered 4 days later after xmas. As you can imagine the airport at Punta Gorda was not a happy place to be. We decided to take the large travel vouchers and refunds the airline was offering and rebook a flight after xmas and just stay down there. And what did we all decided to do on xmas eve Saturday?? Peace River!! We did a day run from Brownsville again hitting a few of the same holes and finding a few new ones. Lots of great finds and great times! Here's some pics: Heres a tapir jaw piece (?) , antler piece, some horse teeth, armadillo osteoderms, turtle shell pieces, alligator tooth, tapir tooth Alligator tooth and tapir tooth tapir jaw piece? gar scales, alligator tooth, pufferfish mouth plate, softshell turtle shell pieces, turtle pieces, giant armadillo osteoderm, glyptodont scute, bony fish vert?? in the middle, antler pieces, mammoth tooth pieces, bullet gar scales, pufferfish mouth plate, alligator tooth, small mammal (horse?) tooth piece, giant armadillo osteoderm bony fish vertebra? , turtle, mammoth tooth pieces antler pieces Enjoy!
  5. So my shark teeth collection has grown quite a bit this month. All found in Sarasota-Venice, a lot were found when I was a child, so about 25 years ago. My mom had saved them and just gave them to me. Some were found in the past couple of months.. this is just a few of them I thought might be identifiable. I plan on making some jewelry and I would love to know what they are for sure.. I need to get a good book. I'm sorry I forgot to put something next to them for scaling, it was hard to get a couple of pictures because my son kept pulling them down and putting them on his teeth LolThanks..
  6. It got up to 26° this afternoon so I stopped by Flag Ponds on the way home from work. There was still plenty of snow on the ground from Saturday, we got about 7-8 inches on Saturday. The entire high tide area was frozen so I stayed just in the water a few feet. I found a nice small mako and a few decent hemi's. I don't have many pictures because I can't clean them in the house or my wife will know where I was.
  7. Hi guys! It's been a while since I've posted here but I wanted to share some of the things we found yesterday out at the beach I know that I have a lot of teeth & stingray parts, but I'm not sure about some of these other bones.. anyone able to make some IDs here? The non-fossil bones were discovered by my husband and he said he thinks they are from a dolphin. I'm interested in finding out info for the photo with 9 items, the brown thing in the center is about one inch for scale. Thanks!
  8. I got to the area pretty early. Got on my waders and raincoat, looked like it was going to rain. I had pulled a ligament in my knee about a month before and had not fully recovered but was okay enough to walk slowly or carefully. I decided it would be an exploring day. There were fresh footprints, probably a day old. To my dismay, it appeared that many of the surface bars had been looked over carefully and meticulously. I still found one or two teeth from them but sifting was my main means. I think some of the footprints may have belonged to deer hunters but there was evidence of occasional sifting. You have got to be careful with the hunters; I was bent over crawling on gravel bars in brown waders...fortunately I had a bright red sweater on. I sifted a lot and my hands quickly became very, very cold. I bore on. The finds were really inconsistent, with certain stretches producing while others were completely barren. About 3/4's of my journey through, I came upon two older females fossiling and talked with them. They were surface scanning and doing quite well. I soon ended my hunt. Unfortunately I got lost and took a 30 minute walk in the opposite direction. This coupled with fossil fatigue made me really tired, nonetheless, the hunt was worth it.
  9. Is anyone going to the Belgrade Quarry in Maysville, NC this Friday? If so, do you have any info or tips? I actually read that it was open to the public this Friday 01/06 on the North Carolina Fossil Club page. I tried reaching out but haven't heard anything back yet via email. Thanks in advance! Holly
  10. Head out a few days ago to Post Oak and many of the gravel bars were underwater (see previous post) so I headed back today for some fresh gravel with no footprints. Results were a little better. On the top row are some of the biggest partially complete teeth I've found including the chunk on the far left of what would be a huge tooth(for post oak). Can't wait till I find one of these monsters complete.
  11. Took a trip out to Post Oak Creek today with @Buffalo Bill Cody and another buddy today. It looked like a pretty big thunderstorm had gone through the area last night and we thought we'd try to be first on the scene. Unfortunately I think we were about a day or 2 early because the creek level was way up and many of the gravel bars were still partially or fully under water. I imagine in a day or so there should be some good freshly turned gravel for hunting. Regardless we put on our boots and made the most of it. Sorry for not displaying these better. I found very few undamaged teeth so I put them all on a plate. I did find one nice Ptychodus. Happy New Year y'all
  12. Shark teeth from the Dorset Chalk UK is the only information I have I’m afraid. I can’t quite make out the word beginning with a “W “on the original label that came with the sharks teeth I’m afraid. And failing light conditions made it not possible for me to take a decent photo of the smaller shark’s tooth of the three. Species unknown at present, any additional information would be most helpful.
  13. Took a short trip out to Post Oak yesterday. Found my first complete glass bottle. Not sure if it's old or not. It has an S with a circle around it on the bottom. Also was pretty excited to find my first Ptychodus teeth.
  14. @Buffalo Bill Codyand I headed out to the North Sulphur River yesterday on a long muddy trip. We headed west from the 2675 bridge about 2 miles including a 20 minute hike along an expanse of river to get to what we hoped would be relitivly untouched gravel. That area of gravel proved to be the least productive of the entire trip. Luckily the gravel within a mile or so of the bridge proved more fruitful. We also had a wild boar siting to keep things exciting. I'm curious if anyone can ID the pieces in the top 2 rows. Also I'm very interested in an ID of the bone above the quarter. I'll post some close ups shortly. Are the strait pieces in third row tooth enamel? If anyone would like close ups of anything let me know.
  15. I had a fun shark tooth hunt yesterday with my buddy Ron at Post Oak Creek. We both found our largest shark tooth since we started hunting. I found a huge Cretodus especially for Post Oak Creek.
  16. Finding Fossilized Shark (Selachimorpha [Selachii]) Teeth On The Shores Of Myrtle Beach, SC: A Definitive, Authoritative, Don't-Deviate-Or-Die Guide By Shane R., a.k.a. "THE master expert of all gurus" Shell-bed - Crushed shells deposited during the high tide transformation to low tide. A proper bed will have NO SAND VISIBLE, ONLY CRUSHED SHELLS!! The ocean's dump... Dump of joy and goodness! This is where you always want to be in some form or another. DO NOT waste time with shell-bedless sand. Bigger pieces of shells in the bed = bigger teeth, less chance of finding squat. Smaller pieces = small teeth but higher chances. Zone 4 - Fine, hot, trash-filled, bone-dry, dredged, behind pretty sea oats sand that's furthest from the ocean (2.25/5 rating & small teeth) Zone 3 - Lumpy, warm, uneven, ever-so-slightly-moist, feet-trodden, gritty sand that's marked by beach scraping machinery tracks (?[unimportant enough that I've never looked]/5 rating & small teeth) Zone 2 - Cool, moist, older-shell-bed-filled, severely foot-trodden, vacationers-set-up-shop-full, smooth sand (3.5/5 rating & small to large teeth) Zone 1 - Very cool, super moist, lightest of waves, fresh-shell-bed filled, heavens-opened-up, stay-here-all-day, smooth-as-a-baby's-rear, where-toothy-addictions-and-backbreaking-obsessions-are-made shore sand (5/5 rating & small to very large teeth) ps. if you can't already tell, this is the zone you want Zone Almost Pointless - Cold, in the "deeper than lightest of waves," impossible-to-see-anything, "that fast wave took my spotted treasure away before I could process," shell-beds so exceptional your feet cut open and bleed, waterery sand (1.75/5 rating & large to extremely large teeth) *Baby Zip bag needed. Leave open the whole time searching. Touch fingers in ocean water, let water drip into bag, fill about 1/4 of bag (the water atoms secure your teeth), hold in one hand between thumb, forefinger, and middle finger (thumb is on right side gripped next to zipper [sharp edge of bag], forefinger nail distance is inside bag, middle finger is above forefinger outside of bag gripped to forefinger nail) while searching. Touch (or drop if you found a big momma) newly acquired teeth to water inside bag until said atoms overtake tooth, securing it in bag. Check continually for low water level and leakages. If found, dip ocean fingers and refill. DO NOT DROP BAG!!!!!! HOLY.. DONT DROP THE BAG. AND.... Don't... be.. tipping the bag either Ahem... Now for that meat. A good mindset to always, always keep is that, chances are, if a shell bed is not actively being eroded at by active waves, any teeth of substantial size have been already taken by another collector. If you aren't actively eye-searching, continually walking, moving around, and searching for the next great eroding shell bed, you ARE wasting precious, valuable time! Look down the beach and head to the next visible bed near the shore! Lots of speed walking is needed! Check to see if waves are or might be close to hitting beds. If so, GET there as fast as possible! Scour the beach with your eyes and be PROACTIVE! Beat the next collector! Be on top of it! If you aren't bent over the whole time, you ARE missing great teeth! R.I.P. Mr. back When you've found a shell-bed near the shore that's actively being eroded by waves, pay super close attention to the area where the sand (closest to ocean) meets the shell bed. This area (and just to the top of bed [furthest from ocean]) is where very large teeth can be found! The middle of the bed is just as good! So check the whole bed!!duh! Make sure the sun is BEHIND YOU and the tooth's enamel should shine like utter diamond from the fresh water on them. Pay SUPER close attention to the bottom of said bed when a wave thoroughly hits it: sometimes teeth come SHOOTING out! The water is naturally sorting this big bed of shells for you! Thank the wind for the eroding waves! Thank the moon for providing the large tide that dropped the shells! The bed that is actively being hit by waves is loooong, as you can see, so don't stay in one place! Pace back and forth the distance of bed where waves are hitting (only where waves are sorting for you)! You are greatly increasing your chances of finding a tooth if you are walking back and forth whilst looking! Pace! Don't stay in one place! Pace! Don't do et . Pace! Scan scan scan! If you aren't actively scanning, you are missing! Active active! Nonstop! This is work since they're valuable to the Gay Dolphin dude! If not trying to fool with tide charts, prepare to be out for at least six hours in order to catch key times. Full moons and new moons are the greatest times to look. Day before and after. Morning. 6:45 am. Nautical twilight time... If there is a storm, GET OUT THERE NOW. Legendary fun awaits. If no shell beds can be found (you're basically fricked...but), bring a short metal shovel, use toes to find an under the sand shell bed, make sure it is close to the ocean, dig large scoops, throw to edge of where water is hitting, let nature erode, search quickly at results. Thank me for this quality, highly treasured, highly secret, authoritative, veteran, insider, seasoned info and data by... Showing me what you find! <3 ~SR

  18. I braved the polar vortex do hit the river for what may be the last time before the new year. I was hoping to go on my birthday tomorrow but I'm not real keen on freezing rain. I'm glad I went today, the strong winds from yesterday obviously stirred the place up...they also made for an extra low tide. I didn't sift much, far too cold for that, but I have to say that it was the best surface collecting I've done here. I was surprised that there were three vertebrae that had washed up, I always like finding those. I also found a frag...some day I'll find a whole meg! The haul: The verts: The frag...I can't wait to find an actual meg!
  19. Went out hunting on Post Oak Creek in Sherman TX yesterday with @Buffalo Bill Cody Fond lots of broken off points from shark teeth. Didn't find really have much luck finding complete teeth. Though Cody's luck seemed to be on fire. I did find one pretty gnar bone that seems to be fossilized. I'll post some close up later for ID help. Cody's hunt was more fruitful. I had to jet early to attend my office Christmas party. Here's what I found...
  20. Hey Fossil Friends, first timer here. My name is Cody. My buddy @Jakuzi and I spent the day at the Sulphur River yesterday and had a great day. Here is what I found. @Jakuziposted his finds on TFF earlier. We are new to fossil hunting so any identification is welcomed. Thanks
  21. Hi y'all. First time poster. Just wanted to share my finds from today on the Sulphur River. Also I had some ID questions and was wondering what a guy has to do to find some vert out there.
  22. I was recently able to hit a tributary of the Sulphur River and came out with a crocodilian tooth. Otherwise it was a good trip, but not great like I had hoped. I do video better than photos and text. Here is the link. Can I ask a favor???? watch the first minute of the first video, and then the second video(1 min intro 2.0). Is the first intro so bad (shaky camera, uncomfortable camera angle) that I should try and replace it? How's the second video as a replacement?? i really appreciate it!! test intro:
  23. I'm thinking this is a meg tooth. Slightly over a inch and really beat up. Found this in ladson, SC. Thanks!
  24. I got out for the second time this week, I'm getting spoiled! I was lucky enough to try somewhere new today. I have a friend from a hunting forum that invited me out to his family's land along the Rappahannock River. He had told me that while they didn't actively look for shark teeth, they occasionally would spy them while duck hunting in the fall or swimming in the summer. I spent about 3 hours with him, and while what we found wasn't a whole lot, he was pretty surprised to see that many teeth...and the vertebrae completely shocked him. I found a bone that I'm curious about, not sure if there is enough there to figure out what it is from though. The haul: Dolphin vert The following are various pictures of the unknown bone:
  25. It has been almost a month since I was last able to get out, I was happy to be able to get half a day to go play at the river. I had my choice of hunting during a good tide in the Paleocene area upriver or a bad tide down river in the Miocene area...of course I chose the latter! LOL! I had picked up some neoprene chest waders that I have been itching to try out, I knew I didn't need to use them upriver but at Stratford Hall, I would have to head into the water to sift. Well, I can honestly say that I got a great deal on them (used once by a new duck hunter who decided he didn't like duck hunting)...they were comfy and dry, but I now understand why most people prefer the light waders. Neoprene is fine for a place like Stratford Hall where you don't move much, I would have hated them if I had to cover any distance...Lesson learned! Anyway, back to the trip...a lot of little stuff and some neat frags. My best find was when I sat down to take a break and spied the root of the mako sticking best so far! I also thought the little dolphin tooth was pretty cool, much smaller than the one I found during the last trip here. The little vert is pretty interesting as well. Here's the pics: My biggest mako so far, I like the colors on it. Dolphin tooth...a real little one. Little vert, I'm guessing some sort of bony fish based on the shape.
