  1. Looking for tips regarding Joshua Creek and Charlie Creek! Both located in SW FL near Arcadia. I've heard good things about both. Just curious about where to park, any success stories, "don't do this," etc. Thanks!!
  2. First dry land haul

    Tried fossil hunting on dry land... found some great stuff! One piece stuck out, don’t recognize it. Provided a close up, second pic!
  3. Texas Fossils Identification

    Hey guys, I was wondering if ya'll could help me identify these. All were found in Texas to the best of my knowledge. I have what I believe to be the phyla of each but I'm not totally sure so take it with a grain of salt. Photo 1: Bryozoa Photo 2: Hemichordata Photo 3: Bryozoa Photo 4: Chordata, this is obviously a shark tooth I think but I'm unsure of the species
  4. Post Oak Creek trip

    Today I went to post Oak creek in Texas for about 3 hours with a friend. We found 211 shark teeth, 1 ptychodus tooth, some bone, 4 small vertebrae, and a few Gastropoda and oysters. We had a great time and I found a 1 1/4 inch tooth. Not sure what species. I also found my first good ptychodus.
  5. Bayfront Park 03/30/19

    Hey everyone, A few days ago I finally got back out to Bayfront Park. According to the local forecast, it was going to be a cloudy day, but there was enough space in the sky during the sunrise for the sun to peek through and create a marvelous display of colors. I always love the scenery at Brownies, and that day was especially beautiful. The tide was relatively low when I arrived, but since I got there just after peak low tide, the water was rising for the entire time I was there, and it rose much faster than I would've liked. I didn't find any big teeth, but overall still had a great day collecting. I hope you enjoy my YouTube video of the hunt, embedded below. If you haven't already done so, please subscribe to my channel, leave a like on the video, and drop a comment as well to let me know what you thought! Thanks for the support! With the weather starting to finally warm up, I will hopefully be able to get out more frequently. Hoping for some low tides. Hoppe hunting!
  6. Anyone Hunting the East Coast?

    Hey guys, just moved to Wilmington NC from Ohio a few weeks ago. I've always loved fossils and metal detecting but I went on my first shark tooth hunt with my wife and found 27 teeth plus a nice great white tooth. I've been hooked ever since. Is there any groups or clubs for fossil hunting in Wilmington?
  7. Here are four shark teeth that I found long ago in Bowie, Md. I could use help in identifying them? Thank you.
  8. Hey TFF Members! It's been a while since we found some larger teeth, but it finally happened again! This time Cris and I took some friends from out of state fossil hunting for a chance for their 8 year old son to find himself a big Megalodon tooth. Not only did he find one... but three BIG teeth were found overall! It was a pleasure to be able to help them find these teeth. Something they don't get where they live. It may have hurt just a little though hahaha! But those teeth will mean more to our little buddy Rob than they ever will to us. He'll remember this forever. I know I would have! Give it a watch when you have a chance!
  9. My daughter and I made it out to Big Brook today. A few fellow hunters out there but for the most part we had our area to ourselves. Water was still cold but new hip waders with thick socks were a nice addition to my kit. Found some of the typical items. Belemnites and Oysters (Agerostera mesenterica Morton & Exogyra costata Say). Also a few nice shark teeth and my first snail.
  10. Me and my friend recently got into looking for shark teeth and fossils and after coming back from a tour at peace river I am dying to find more shark teeth and fossils but I live in central Orlando close to universal. Does anyone know if there are any spots in the Orlando area or close that we can go sifting for shark teeth or fossils, Ive searched everyone online and cant seem to find any closed to me. I just bought equipment yesterday to build a good sift and it looks pretty great and I want to put it to good use if someone could help me find spots close to me that would be amazing
  11. I’m Located in Savannah, GA but take day trips to Summerville, SC often. We find very good teeth here in Savannah including Megs at our more secret islands on the banks. I usually go with my wife and son but I wanted to find better spots in Summerville to take my kid instead of taking the boat to the islands. Would anybody want to swap spots with me? I would take you on the boat to the islands we hunt from if I can get some inside where to go in summerville.
  12. Virginia

    Hello all. Looking for some help/advice. Heading to Williamsburg, VA this weekend and am looking to do a quick morning of fossil hunting for shark teeth, maybe 3-4 hour time window. Does anyone know any general spots that are accessible to public. Was gonna do York river state park but they only allow you to keep one fossil. Chippokes is close but it looks like it takes a while to get across it around the James. Was hoping to find somewhere right near Williamsburg or on way back towards SW Va. Any help is much appreciated.
  13. My family and I took a road trip all the way from canada to try and find some shark teeth and whatever other adventures we could find. Before we hit the beach we headed to the smithsionian in washington d.c . What an amazing experience we had and could literally spends days to fully appreciate everything they had to offer. Next stop was bayfront park maryland. The weather was cold and windy and the water was ice cold, but that didn't stop us! After a few tries with the sifter we found our very first tooth, a feeling I will never forget thats for sure. After searching for 2 hours and finding many small teeth we decided to head out to our next destination Aurora. The town is small and the few people we did meet were very kind. My two kids really liked digging here as it's nice and safe with a guaranteed chance of finding teeth. I highly recommend aurora for family's and newbies looking to find teeth. The museum is really cool with awsome fossils and some good stuff to buy. Our next location bought us to the famous GMR in Greenville . Everyone I talked to said it's flooded don't waste your time but being stubborn I went anyways. Lol I was able to find a small location that allowed me to get down and do some sifting. I found some really nice teeth but the GW I really wanted didn't happen for me this trip. There was lots of broken glass and garbage in the spot I was so be careful . We hooked up with george powell jr while we were in greenville and like many people have said he truly is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He took hours showing me and my family his collection and it's just leaves you in aww. ThanKS George! I'm really thinking of getting my diving certificate for future trips! The rest of the trip is none fossil related so I will spare you all that lol but we had a blast and found the fossil community to be very warm and welcoming. Cheers
  14. Post Oak Creek Shark Tooth Fossils

    After fossils hunting in the North Sulphur River, I decided to go and check out Post Oak Creek in Sherman, Texas. I found 83 teeth there in one day, some of which I am interested in getting identified. These teeth are from the Upper Cretaceous period.
  15. I have the chance to fly down to NC on Sunday. I was wondering if there are any shark teeth on the beaches of the Kill Devil Hills area, just north of Nags Head. If the weather holds up my buddy and I are likely to make the trip just to see 1st Flight Airport and museum but I would love, obviously, to walk on the beach looking for a tooth!! Thanks. Andy
  16. Yesterday we knocked out our first Dinosaur Rock education program, tomorrow we do our first 3 Sharks Through Time education program. Unlike Monday when I was pretty nervous about our first program ever, I am relaxed and ready to talk about shark adaptations over 400 million years. We have nice fossil displays, the science is strong, and FREE shark tooth laden fossil starter kits. A HUGE thank you goes out to all who donated. Those donations are getting into the hands of kids We will hand out 100 fossil kits tomorrow and by the end of our first official week of operation, close to 150 fossil starter kits will be in the hands of local elementary students. That is not a bad first week at all.
  17. I wanted to share some pictures from a recent trip to SW Florida. I grew up in FL but I didn’t do any fossil hunting until I moved to CA and found Shark Tooth Hill. I was really excited to get out and find some Florida fossils. Unfortunately, the Peace River was too high to hunt so we have to explore some smaller rivers that weren’t too flooded. That worked out for me because we found some great fossils! Some members of the forum were nice enough to show me around. I sent out a box of STH finds to my FL friends to get some fossil goodwill going. I think some of them were posted for ID in another thread. I really enjoyed what to me was easy digging in the Florida creeks, it was kind of hot out for February but the weather was great for being in the water. I was really surprised about the diversity of fossils found, at one point on the bank we found an area that had both land and marine fossils in the same layer. You could walk around and just pick cool stuff up. That is where I found the Giant Armadillo jaw section that won the fossil of the month. It was a nice contrast to STH where you tend to find the same type of fossils over and over. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
  18. Last week I was on holiday in the Netherlands/Belgium for a short time and I had the chance to visit the area of Antwerp to find some shark teeth. Too bad the weather wasnt good (I think it rained the entire day). Nevertheless I found some teeth and I have to say that I am kinda satisfed with the result! I almost sieved the whole day so my body still hurts a bit The material I searched in comes from the Miocene, Pliocene and was washed up from the extension of Churchill dock in Antwerp. Here are two "in-situ" pictures: A nice tooth on the sifter: Pictures of the nicest teeth: A nice dolphin tooth with enamel (4 cm long): A dolphin ear bone: (a little bit more than 2 cm long) An Isurus retroflexus tooth (3 cm long): And an 4.2 cm long Cosmopolitodus hastalis: (I am not sure if I determined this one right ...) I think I will post some more detailed pictures of other teeth in the next days! Thanks for watching
  19. Dawson creek trip

    I had to work in Pamlico Co. NC today. While at the Dawson creek bridge I ran across a couple of piles of material like they have at the fossil museum. I couldn’t spend much time picking but it was fun for a few minutes.
  20. Hey all, The Calvert Cliffs have been falling left and right recently. Countless cliff slides have led to plenty of new material becoming accessible on the beaches, but the unstable cliffs also call for extra caution. I decided to return to my favorite winter hunting location, Bayfront Park, to try and take advantage of the cliff falls. I thought it would be a good opportunity to film my first YouTube video, which I have been wanting to do for a while, so I brought my new handheld camera mount. Peak low tide was exactly at sunrise, so I woke up at 4 a.m. in order to arrive at the beach before then. Early mornings can be rough, but if you're getting up to do something you love it's a whole lot easier. When I got to the parking lot, it was still very dark and I actually had to use my phone's flashlight to hunt for the first few minutes before the sun began its ascent into the horizon. It was a very cloudy day, so unfortunately I wasn't treated with one of the gorgeous Brownies sunrises. Within 10 or 15 minutes or searching, I found one of the biggest teeth I've ever found at Brownies, a huge 2 inch mako in perfect condition. That's when I knew it was going to be a good day. Not too long after that, I stumbled across a circular object slightly covered by sand. It looked like it could be some kind of vertebra or possible a "cookie" (dolphin epiphysis), but there was only one way to find out. When I tried pulling it out, it didn't budge. I pulled harder. As it still wouldn't come out, I realized it must be much larger than it appeared on the surface. Throwing aside the rock next to it, I finally pulled out a beautiful cetacean vertebra! I've always wanted to find one, especially after running into a guy who found a dozen of them on my last Brownies trip, so I was ecstatic. I continued finding some very nice teeth. I also found another cetacean vertebra, this time a very different shape but in very good condition. Despite the harsh temperature and dangerous cliffs, there were quite a few other hunters out on the beach. At one point I ran into a man who had found two perfects Megs, each one about 2 inches. I hoped to find one for myself, but had no such luck. Regardless, I was extremely content with everything I found and began to make my way back to the car. This trip was one to remember, not only because of the awesome finds, but also the fun experience of filming the video. I kept this trip report rather short, because the video covers the detail I usually go into, and then some. Anyway, I've wanted to become a fossil hunting YouTuber pretty much ever since I began hunting, but I just never really got around to it until now. I love watching YouTubers like @addicted2fossils, and I hope others will find my videos to be entertaining and educational as well. I've posted the link to my video below, and I would really appreciate it if you would take a second to like the video, leave a comment, and subscribe to my channel. I'll be putting out many videos like this in the future. I have some very exciting trips coming up, including hunting at a private creek site and going to the annual Aurora Fossil Festival in NC! Stay tuned. Hoppe hunting!
  21. Hello I am setting a 4 day trip to Florida with my son to find Shark Teeth and bone mid March. He is a teenager and experienced; we did a Summer trip to Summerville, SC. We hear rains have Florida rivers and streams fairly high right now? We have never hunted for fossils in Florida; but are looking to areas along the Peace River and researched Arcadia may be a good central location? We are thinking of doing: * Day 1 - Excursion with a guide (allows us to familiarize us with the area; dos and don'ts) * Day 2 - Hit Peace River (I have some general ideas of locations, but could use help) * Day 3 - Try some adjacent Rivers (I have some general ideas of locations, but could use help) * Day 4 - Either repeat above if we have success, or try Casperson beach in Venice Any insights/guidance would be fantastic. Thank you! Ken
  22. Hey TFF Members! Here's the second video of 2 days of fossil hunting that Cris and I did when it was a high of around 85/86 both days.... in February?! Florida is strange, but I love this so much compared to the weather where I was born up in Michigan. It's nice to be able to enjoy the outdoors comfortably all year! This was an extremely fun trip, other than the fact CRIS FOUND ALL THE GOOD MEGALODON TEETH! Hahaha. I still found some cool stuff, so I guess it's okay Hope you all can watch it when you get a chance!
  23. I have detailed our shark education program in previous posts but I forgot the best part. Fossils on Wheels has around 350-400 shark teeth that will be given away to kids. All of these come from donations. My son and I have donated around half and the rest have come from donors on TFF, who we have thanked in previous posts. These are really my favorite fossils because they serve a higher purpose. Getting kids interested in science, natural history, fossils and of course, SHARKS !!! I write a lot in these posts but the core of what we do is summarized above. This is fun and we are feel lucky to be doing this. The donations from TFF members are allowing us to do this and the kids will know it. Thanks to donations of marine invertebrate fossils, these teeth are going to become fossil starter kits with other fossils mixed in. The pictured below are some of the fossils. Some STH mako teeth and about 100 Squalicorax teeth are not in the picture because they are in my laundry room at the moment. Tomorrow, I start bagging these and putting together information cards so I wll know exactly how many fossil start kits we will have in a day or two. We have a nice mix Moroccan Squalicorax, Sand Tiger teeth and Otodus teeth, a significant number of STH mako teeth, teeth from a few smaller STH shark species, a few Ptychodus, and a few Goblin Shark teeth. We are trying to make sure we give away teeth from species we cover in the presentation. THANK YOU FOSSIL FORUM MEMBERS for helping us make this happen
  24. Hey TFF members! Some friends visited us from out of state and we had a great time showing them the amazing fossils that Florida has to offer. They also got to experience our whacky winters with it being 85 degrees in February! I was born in a Michigan... I'm not complaining! We found some awesome stuff though, so I hope you can give the video a watch when you have some time. This was such a fun one!
  25. Venice Beach Hunting

    Had the chance to do a little hunting at Venice Beach while on vacation. Didn't find anything of size and the teeth were pretty common ones. Lot's of really small teeth and ray teeth. Some nice coral pieces. Was hoping for a Hemi but no such luck. What was really cool were the "boulders" they were using to help stop beach erosion.
