  1. Would anyone know of a easy to get to location where I can park and look for shark teeth in a creek or river? I don't have a diving license nor do I have a South Carolina hobby license and I am looking for a good location, also, if there is a great location for finding shark teeth that requires a license, I can try to get a licence to visit that location.

    Fossil shark teeth

    I recently received some micro matrix from @thelivingdead531. Again thank you so much, it is an awesome gift! But I have been trying to ID the shark teeth and can't figure out what any of them for sure are. I would really appreciate any help. Also sorry about the quality of the pics. I may be able to take better pictures, but only if I need to.
  3. Yesterday I scouted Calvert Cliffs Beach to see if my friends would be able to join me on a fossil hunt there. As this was only my third lifetime hunt, I'd only been to Matoaka prior, and wanted to see if the path to the Calvert Beach was accessible enough for a friend using a cane and someone more out of shape than I am. That said, I'm not fit myself, so the 3.6-mile hike to and from the beach was not easy. However, it was gorgeous! As many people will tell you online, the cliffs at Calvert Beach are not legally accessible; the state park service has closed off access to them due
  4. Hello, I've heard that some locations are better than others for finding specific species. My favorite shark teeth to find are those of the snaggletooth shark, so I was wondering if anyone knows where I might be able to focus my hunting in order to find the serrations of my dreams! I live in PA, but am willing to drive as far as Virginia if I have time and money. So far I've found baby H. serra teeth at Matoaka, but as I'm a new fossil hunter I haven't had a chance to check out other sites yet. Any recommendations? Thanks!
  5. I recently acquired two Cretaceous lamniform shark teeth that I'm trying to identify. The first one, from Russia, was sold as Cardabiodon sp., but I'm curious if that's correct or if it's something else. The second tooth, from Texas, didn't come with an ID. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide! #1 - Cardabiodon? sp. This tooth is from the Cenomanian of Russia and was found near Fedorovka Village, Tambov Region. The tooth measures 28.51 mm on the slant and 14.91 mm at its widest across the root. #2 - Unidentified

    Shark tooth arrowhead? Or just broken?

    Hey all, I've been on the fence about this tooth. It was a beach find (Venice, FL), so I think it is a little damaged and tumbled. Could the root be notched on one side? (The other side looks broken off.) Is the center boring potentially natural? Many thanks!

    Teeth from Douglas

    It has been a long time since I’ve gone out, it was nice to have the place to myself. Not everything shown, but a variety of things.
  8. Hello to all of you guys, a couple of weeks before i asked for help in relation with some shark teeth, and the help indeed was very nice! A couple days before i was back in field trip and found some more teeth from the same strata, and would need your help for the correct ID (hopefully at species or genus level), you guys are awesome!!! Here´s the list of the fossils (each step of the ruler is 2mm): 1) A tiny tooth with very small roots and 3 denticles, the central and main one is triangular and very oblicuous 2) A tooth with very triangular cusplets and

    POC & NSR Day Trip- Nov 2021

    I turned today into a fun adventure! Today I was to go to jury duty but was dismissed at 9am. Since I had the day off from both my job and school I decided to tell the spouse to grab my hiking bag out of the closet and get my bucket out the back yard. The best thing about where I live in TX at the moment is that I literally live smach dab in the middle of 2 famous fossil hotspots in north Texas- both are about the same distance. The day was new and I was free. I wanted to try them both! So I did. NSR first. Today was perfect- not too hot not too cold. Clouds! Breeze and shade.

    Douglas Point 10-17-21

    After going several weeks without fossil hunting, due to weather, schedule, etc., I finally made it out to Douglas Point (Paleocene, Aquia Formation) in Maryland this morning on a very pretty, cool autumn day. My first fossil find of the day was a small piece of ratfish plate. Below is my first shark tooth of the day (a sand tiger, like the vast majority of teeth found here). By the standards of this site, the quantity of shark teeth was low today, but they were in better than average shape, which isn't a bad trade off. Many appeared to be fres

    A Few More Shark Teeth

    I visited my favorite shark tooth site just north of the Lake of Constance again recently and just wanted to show off a few finds. If anyone notices that I've made any mistakes with my ids then please let me know. Araloselachus cuspidatus The next two I would call Carcharodon (Cosmopolotidus) hastalis, although I know that some still lump these under Isurus. Carcharhinus priscus And the next two I've identified as Odontaspis molassica.
  12. I’m looking for solid places to dig / sift in North Carolina, preferably near Greenville or Fayetteville! I’ve visited Green Mill Run in Greenville a handful of times, and upon researching I found a place called Phoebus Landing, but no specifics as to where it is aside from Elizabethtown and it being on the Cape Fear River. If any of you guys have specifics *please* let me know! I’m pretty eager to check out a new site. Thanks in advance!

  15. Hello, all! I see that there are already a few threads concerning the fluorescent or phosphorescent properties of some fossil, but I thought I'd share a video I took today. I just received a Convoy C8+ long wave 365nm UV flashlight, and so, naturally, I was going around the apartment to see just how disgusting my kitchen and bathroom look when revealed under long wave UV light, but also to take a look at the various rocks and fossils I've collected over the years. I was surprised to find that the teeth from Ernst Quarry, in Bakersfield, all fluoresce a light orange color- like cantaloupe- but

    Microphotography

    Taken with my new microscope camera. The first three pictures will be of crocodile teeth from the Hell Creek formation of Montana and are from the Cretaceous period. All are taken at 20x to show a lot of detail. First photo: Borealosuchus Sternbergi is 4.5 mm long. Second photo: Champosaurus sp. is 3 mm long. Third photo: Brachychampsa montana

    Moroccan Eocene shark teeth and jaw bone

    I recently purchased some more Moroccan fossils, including several shark teeth...I tried IDing them on my own, here are my guesses (scale is in inches; 1 inch = 2.5 cm), am I close?

    Shark teeth ID please

    Hello, recently went on a trip to highcliffe beach/Barton on Sea (both have same formations and stretch of beach). I found 11 water-worn shark teeth from the shingle which are attached (I can post more of specific ones if needed) and lots of gastropods directly from the Barton clay, pictures will follow tomorrow if those. The formation is 40M years old. I have some rough ideas for what they may be but need some help Going from left to right starting on the first row: 1&2 I believe to be sand tiger shark of some sort. 3,4,5 and 6 I thought could be Carcharodon Auric

    Big Brook, NJ + new member

    Hello and thank you for letting me join your forum. My name is Lindsey and today my family went to Big Brook in NJ for the first time, looking for some shark teeth. We found some interesting things and we've got no idea where to even start with identifying the things we bought home. Can you please point me in the right direction? Thank you in advance for your help and I hope you're all having a great week. Lindsey.
