  1. Headed out to Sulphur River with my girlfriend on Sunday. Checked out a new bridge that looked like it had many gravel bars on the satellite images. Upon getting to the bottom of the bridge my girlfriend promptly got stuck in the mud and ate sh*t. She's a trooper and we didn't let it get us down. After walking for awhile through deep sucking mud we made it to the promised gravel bars. Much of it was covered in mud, silt, and clay but there was still enough gravel for some good hunting. As we would walk through the mud our feet would pull up layers of mud that would have gravel underneath. What exactly has to happen for that mud to wash away and reveal the gravel underneath? I've read a lot on here about the spring rains? Maybe a sustained rise of the river? Here are our finds from the trip. I'll post some close ups of question finds. I'm planning on returning this Saturday for full day hunt. Would anybody like to meet up? @JarrodB @John S. @David E. ?
  2. No work, kids were in school, and warm temperatures predicted...time to head to the river again! My wife searched along the water's edge while I broke out the shark tooth sifter and dredged the first drop off in the water. It didn't take long before I found a nice Mako and feeling pretty good about it...then my wife yelled at me and motioned me over quickly, a beautiful Cow Shark tooth! We have found a few before but they always were broken, this was the first one that we found that was intact...definite trip maker! We both continued on finding the normal teeth for the area and decided to head home a few hours later, I hesitated and said I needed to find one more tooth before going...glad I did, I then found the second Mako! It's going to be hard for me to work all week without coming down with...*cough cough*...tooth fever! LOL! The total haul: Awesome Cow Shark! Makos I believe this is a Lemon, largest one I have found. A bone fragment that I found, thought it was pretty cool to see the hollow insides. Not sure what this is, My wife found it and thought it looked interesting. I think it is geologic but I told her I would throw it up here to see if anyone thought it was something:
  3. Hi y'all, Here are the finds from 3 separate half day trips to Post Oak Creek during the first weekend of Feb and from last Saturday. One of those days was spent hunting a new to me part of the creek that seemed to have more trash and glass than fossils. That day I decided to make a move to a more productive part of the creek to collect some gravel that I had promised my nieces so they could do some fossil hunting at home. Also I collected some for myself. Last Saturday @Buffalo Bill Cody and I went hunting. It's was warmer and I noticed several bass swimming in the creek. I'll have to bring my fishing pole for the next outing. The week before last I went canoeing on the Llano River for 4 days where I had the pleasure of seeing some interesting fossils that I'll be posting below. Bare with me. I'm posting from an IPhone.
  4. From the album Scottish Lower Carboniferous marine shark teeth

    Polyrhizodus sp. Lower Carboniferous, Visean Charlestown Main Limestone Central Belt of Scotland 330 mya 20.5x18mm
  5. Hey all, I am New to the forum, and very happy to be here with all of you. I live close to Philadelphia, but have been traveling to New Jersey to a well known creek that dates back to the Cretaceous period to hunt for fossils. I found this one thing and I have no clue what it is. Perhaps you'd be able to assist? since I can't post too many photos in the same message, I'm going to add a couple more possible fossils that I don't know how to ID. thanks for having me here everybody! brettco
  6. I went on two trips last Thursday and Friday. The first trip lasted approximately four hours and the second was around five and half. I surface scanned about half of the time during the first trip but did not do so at all during the second trip; this was due to some already looking over the places I went on the second trip. On both trips I explored different areas of the streams.
  7. A 70 degree in February? You just have to head to the water! I played tour guide to a friend and his two boys (5th & 7th grade), they had a blast! My friend's kids kept seeing my posts on Facebook and wanted to go bad, I definitely had to make a trip happen. We arrived about 2 hours before low tide and immediately started to find teeth, it didn't take long for them to understand the whole process before they were setting out on their own to sift the areas they thought was going to have the best finds...and boy did they find stuff! Tigers, Requiem, Snaggletooth, Lemon, and some Sand tigers...and then I heard a cry, "I've got one with lots of teeth!" Their first trip and they pulled up a Cow shark tooth...and then a second one as well! A group of Boy Scouts came to the beach for a little while and I encouraged them to se the sifters that we weren't using and they were soon finding teeth as well, eagerly bringing them to me so I could identify it for them. One of the Boy Scouts let out a yell, "I found a Great White...or a Meg, I don't know which?" Sure enough, he found a small Meg up near the high water mark, that kid was smiling ear-to-ear...and I don't blame him. One of the Stratford Hall workers came down to the beach and headed past the ropes to check something out, when he came back he walked over to the boys and presented them with a real nice shark vertebrae. A little while later he was back past the ropes and came back 30 minutes later and gave the boys a piece of a whale (dolphin?) skull. My friend's kids were on cloud nine! Then they got another gift from a college student that was combing the beach, a fossilized crab. I never would have known but he pointed out everything to kids and I, absolutely fascinating! As we were leaving, they found a pretty large bone as well, both boys were overjoyed at finding it too! I have to say, if you can take a kid with you and introduce them to this hobby, DO IT! These boys loved every minute of it and learn as they do! I would love to present some nice pictures of our finds but I didn't bring anything back, I just guided and helped them where I could. My wife surface collected, she found a neat fish vert but everything else was the normal small stuff. My wife's finds. The boy's finds Me and the boys, sifting away!
  8. I recently acquired some bulk samples of shark teeth from Morocco. Quite a lot of them appear to be Sand Tigers or Sand sharks (Odontaspididae). I'm working on collecting references to ID these teeth before assembling tooth sets. Since teeth from Morocco are so common, I thought this would be a useful resource for others. I'm just starting out and this reference is a good place to start: ARAMBOURG, C. (1952) Les vertébrés fossiles des gisements de phosphates (Maroc-Algérie-Tunisie). Notes et Mémoires du Service Géologique du Maroc, 92: 1–372, 62 fig., 44 pl Although it is in French and I believe a lot of the taxonomy has probably progressed from this time. Is there already a post on this topic? If not I would sure appreciate contributions of references for shark teeth for this locality. There may also be references from other localities that are relevant as they deal with species found in the Moroccan deposits. After some time we could organise references into something that makes sense taxonomically and if there is a demand for it maybe pin it. Thanks everyone!
  9. I went back to Purse today with my wife, you just have to love it when you play at the river in February and only have to wear a sweatshirt. We didn't find anything spectacular but my wife did find a Otodus frag that would have been absolutely spectacular had it been whole. The total haul, some nice glass today too. Otodus frag...this would have been a beast if it was whole! Pretty cool looking sand tiger. Croc tooth...found this sitting high and dry as I was walking fast to get to where I wanted to search at. I see you! Although it was warm today, there were some neat icicles hanging down.
  10. Hello everybody I have some shark teeth from Belgium for trade. These teeth are al from Antwerp, but at a closed place. These are legal collected in 1970 (not by me). I don't know what species are in this sac. But at least Hastalis, Notorynchus and much more. But I'm not a shark teeth specialist. I want to trade at every interesting offer. You got exactly like you see on the picture. Pm for more info Greetings
  11. I will start this out with three really cool patho teeth from the Lee Creek Mine in Aurora, North Carolina. These are all from the Miocene Pungo River Formation. First a small tooth, about 5mm wide 4mm long. I believe possibly Odontaspis Next a tiger shark, Galeocerdo sp., but I am leaning towards aduncus. and last an extremely pathological tooth that I believe is Carcharocles chubutensis, but I label it as carcharocles sp. Lets see what you have.
  12. Hey all, Does anyone know the approximate age of the Tirabuzon Formation (AKA Corkscrew Hill) from Santa Rosalia, Mexico? I've seen that it's Pliocene but haven't gotten it narrowed down to the millions of years within the Pliocene. Some sources say late Pliocene while others say early Pliocene, so its been a bit confusing.
  13. I met up with Boneheadz to do a hunt together at Purse and I'm glad that we did, nice to have a fellow tooth nut along for the hunt. Great day to be on the river too, pretty warm and the Potomac was extremely calm. We got to the river about 2 hours after high tide and headed out. We both went further downriver than we had ever gone before, scanning the beach and poking around the newly fallen matrix. I can't say it was a banner day for finds but as usual, the finds were consistent. After three hours of searching, we left the river with the tide still an hour away from being low...always next time! Here are my finds, Boneheadz will post on here later with his finds. My total haul. A first for me, a piece of matrix with a tooth in it. Otodus, too bad the biggest one was damaged. On the way back, I looked out over the marsh and spied an eagle's nest. I love seeing the eagles along the river.
  14. Hi everyone! I'm fairly new to Beaufort, SC. Recently moved up from FL where I hunted Peace River a lot. I'm hoping to connect with other fossil hunters in the area and maybe gain some local knowledge. I've watched a ton of videos of nice megalodon teeth being found in Summerville/Charleston area land sites, creeks, ditches. What I'm looking for is the possibility of similar sites here in Beaufort County but I don't know enough about local formations to draw any conclusions. I'm not a diver yet so my main focus is on land at the moment. I've hunted the sands at Port Royal with minimal success (the occasional small meg) but I'm really looking for the bigger stuff. I also have a kayak if that helps! Any info is greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  15. So Friday I got to the parking lot first at Brownies Beach, but the locals down at the end of the beach had already been through. I needed a flashlight for at least a half hour so they must have been out pretty early. I had a work emergency so I hadto leave, but I stopped by on the way home. Then today I get to Brownies early then stopped by Flag Ponds on the way home. So I ended up getting 4 different hunts in between the two days.
  16. Hi all, I have started incorporating fossil hunting into my upcoming travels. I find it a peaceful way to experience the outdoors, and the geographically, many fossil hunting sites are near some quality fishing grounds. So I get the best of both worlds and go home with a light sunburn, great fishing, and a bag full of rocks to memorialize the day outdoors. The link to the adventures, as well as a more "in the field" trip report, is at the end of this text. This post is mostly to highlight my finds, as a first timer to the Peace River, sharing my full haul, and up-close pictures of my finds. I was in the area for a week, staying with family in Cape Coral, and made the 1 hr 15+ minute drive to the Peace River on 3 separate trips. The first was with a local fossil tour guide, and the other 2 times were solo, based off information from fellow FF members and other maps online. In short on the field report: the water levels were low, the weather was good, and I found a great variety but In my opinion, this is a fantastic haul for a first timer, but I'd love to hear your thoughts as well. Full disclosure, during taking pictures, I did not have the leisure of a sunny or well-lit room so I used some filters and photo-enhancers like sharpening and contrast to highlight some features. Call it cheating but the pics still barely just do it justice. This is the full haul! as spread on my kitchen table on a Saturday afternoon. A bit more organized, and almost an hour of laying it out. Turtle shells Tiger Shark my biggest Tiger Hemi Stingray Mouthplates Stingray Barbs Fish Mouthplates The Megalodon Teeth, and quite a massive one for the area Horse Teeth Dolphin Jaw bones Alligator and Crocodile Teeth A unique "in-situ" tooth Shells and imprints Lots and lots of bone fragments, I kept the nicer looking ones And lots and lots of teeth, Lemon Shark mostly Here is the fun part, these are some of my oddball and unidentified ones. From the top across and down, Tapir tooth, shark vert, ?, stingray dermal, and the furthest one to the right barracuda tooth. Other than that I am lost! All in all a fantastic time, and amazing excuse to get out of Chicago for January I would gladly go again, and hope to see some of you on the water next time! The full "in the field" trip report is on the blog I am starting: http://americanfossilhunt.com/2017/01/21/shark-tooth-hunting-peace-river-2017-trip-report/
  17. Hi y'all, Worked a fatty day in an area that got me about halfway to the Sulphur. Got me about a half day on the river. I wanted shark teeth so I went to a bridge that has gotten me good results before. When I reached the bottom of the bridge I saw no footprints(it was muddy at the bottom) so I had high expectations. Considering previous finds I thought with the river rise a few weeks ago I'd be finding at least a bazillion shark teeth. It didn't work out like that. A lot of the gravel bars had mud or a dusting of silt over the gravel that was there. Despite this I found some good stuff. I'll post some close ups of things for ID. Here's the haul. Including a perfect fish tooth and jaw with a few teeth. The jaw piece is my first. Didn't find a bazillion shark teeth but managed to find some new stuff and still make some money at work. Great Friday.
  18. So I headed out to Brownies Beach this morning to do a little hunting. I pulled in the parking lot about 30 minutes before sunrise and was only the 8th car there. I stayed about 4 hours and rounded up 249 teeth. The biggest was a hair over 1 5/8.
  19. Little help identifying these please. I've been doing some googling but I'm a little unsure if I've identified these correctly so I wanted to get a consensus. I'm not sure what the second picture is. Thanks everyone.
  20. Diatoms are monocellular organisms which contain chlorophyll, and manufacture their own food in the same manner as plants, through the process of photosynthesis. They are one of the major producers of the Earth's oxygen. Their long geological history makes them very useful in the correlation of sedimentary rocks, and they are of equal value in reconstructing paleoenvironments. They are remarkably common everywhere there is any water at all! I have studied fossil marine diatoms for many years, as they are my primary interest in the microfossil world. Many of them are quite beautiful, and they are a favorite subject with many persons who enjoy photomicrography. My primary interest is in diatom taxonomy and evolution, not photography, so I'm afraid my images don't really do them justice. Centric diatoms exhibit radial symmetry, from circular to triangular, and all points between. Oval shapes are not uncommon. The oldest specimens of essentially modern diatom types are from the Cretaceous, and one of the very best localities is the Moreno Shale, which crops out in the Panoche Hills of California. Many diatomists have worked on this flora, and it is fairly well understood. Here we see two of the common taxa from this source. (The bar across the top of the Azpeitiopsis is a sponge spicule, not part of the diatom!) Diatom frustules are composed of secreted silica -- hence they are brittle, but can be virtually indestructible by chemical or diagenetic change in the right sort of environment. (One exception is a highly alkaline environment, which corrodes and ultimately dissolves biogenetic silica.) Other siliceous microfossils include some types of sponge spicules, silicoflagellates (another blog entry coming up perhaps), radiolarians, and ebrideans. At least one family of the foraminifera uses siliceous cement to form their tests. Diatom floras changed radically across the KT boundary, but they are still abundant in the Paleocene. Arguably the world's most famous locality for fossil diatoms is the region around Oamaru, New Zealand, and all collectors have many specimens from there. The age is Late Eocene - Early Oligocene. Somewhat earlier are the many great localities in Russia. Here is a Paleocene specimen from Simbirsk, Ulyanovskaya, Russia. Note that it deviates from pure centric form in that it is slightly ovoid. My own specialty is the diatoms of the Miocene. The United States is blessed with superb Miocene localities on both coasts, many well-known to members of this forum, because most of them can also produce superb shark teeth. The earliest known Miocene flora in the US comes from sites in Maryland: near Dunkirk, Nottingham, and other lesser known localities along the Patuxent River. All of these sites began to be explored in the mid-19th Century, because the diatoms are so perfectly preserved, to say nothing of abundant! These sites are in the lowest part of the Calvert Formation; indeed, there is an unconformity above them that lasted for a considerable period of time, and the diatom flora exhibits considerable changes across it. This part of the Miocene section belongs to the Burdigalian Stage, and age-equivalent diatoms are found also in bore holes and artesian wells at Atlantic City, New Jersey. An index fossil for the East Coast Burdigalian is the following taxon: This species of Actinoptychus evolved relatively quickly, and became extinct at the end of the Burdigalian. It is remarkably beautiful under the microscope, especially in color images, as fine structures in the silica serve as diffraction gratings. I regret that I have no color image in my photo library: I need to make a few! The Calvert Cliffs are rich in fossil diatoms, also, from the later, Middle Miocene. The above is but one example of the many marvelous specimens that can be found in the Calvert. If you're walking the beach for shark teeth, and have access to a microscope such as that used in microbiology or pathology labs, or even the type used in high school biology labs, grab a sample of the sediment. Soak it in water until it disaggregates into mud, let it settle until the water is just a bit cloudy, and put a drop on a microscope slide with a coverslip. A magnification of 100X should reveal diatom frustules (or fragments thereof) among the remaining, unsettled particles of silt. Diatomists all have their own protocols to get such specimens almost perfectly clean, and permanent slides made with a mountant of high refractive index can be utterly gorgeous. I am currently working most intensely on samples from the somewhat later Choptank Formation, that outcrops at Richmond, Virginia. This is another locality that produces excellent specimens: This is one of the most enduring taxa in the geological record, appearing from the early Paleogene right up until the present day, and it can be very abundant. A common triangular form. There are many genera of triangular centric diatoms. And other radial shapes are possible, too: So far as I am aware, this unique specimen is the earliest known example of this taxon, which is still found today in tropical waters. The breakage in the top "arm" is unfortunate, but what can I say: the specimen is, thus far, unique. One might expect modern contamination of the sample, were it not for the fact that the Richmond localities occur far from the contemporary ocean coast -- they are not "watered" by modern waves! That's it -- the 3.95 MB limit..............................
  21. 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).
  22. 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!
  23. 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.
  24. 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!
  25. 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..
