  1. Myrtle Beach Trip

    Hi Everyone! Hope everyone is having a great day. A couple things, so my family and I are taking a trip to Myrtle Beach the last week of August and I would really like to do some fossil hunting while I'm down there to get a break from the Devonian up here in NY. So I have a couple questions. 1. I know that the obvious choice here is shark tooth hunting on the beach, which I definitely plan on doing, I bought a really nice snorkeling mask to do a little bit of searching in the water itself. My question is what is the best method of searching for shark teeth on the beach, and what should I be looking for in order to find the teeth? I know there's the sifting method which I will definitely implement, but I would just like to know what I am looking for, is there a section of the beach that generally has them more frequently when tides are low, just some helpful tips, hoping to nab a Meg tooth, but I know my odds are low. 2. Beyond just shark tooth hunting, I would like to go inland and do some searching as well, so are there any rivers, streams, creeks, etc. within an hour of the Myrtle Beach area where I could do some hunting as well? Any fossils at all would be very cool to bring back from the area so I just want to make sure I have the best chances of finding something worth bringing back. Thanks, Hittingthebeds
  2. Lee Creek shark tooth ID

    Lee Creek NC spoils pile find. I suspect it is a juvenile C. megalodon upper-posterior, but the asymmetry is throwing me off. Am I on the right track or way off?
  3. Galveston Haul August 2019

    From the album Galveston Fossils

    Over three days, I found a few beach treasures. I found a couple of ray plates ( the "v" shaped one is from an eagle ray), a pufferfish/parrotfish mouth plate, three shark teeth, and a couple of bones likely from a turtle. Scale bar = 1 cm.
  4. The Moon gave me a shark tooth!

    From the album Galveston Fossils

    A shark tooth washed ashore on Galveston Island. Found 8/10/19.
  5. Cretodus crassidens

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    Tooth from a large Cretaceous shark. Scale bar = 1 cm. Collected 7/30/19.
  6. 7/30/19 Trip Haul

    From the album Post Oak Creek

    Shark teeth, mastodon enamel, and vertebrae found in POC on 7/30/19. Found more teeth than last two trips combined! Unfortunately, I didn't find any ptychodus or cretoxyrhina. Scale bar = 1 cm.
  7. Please help identify some Big Brook finds!

    I took a trip to Big Brook in Monmouth County, NJ yesterday and found some things that I need help identifying. Any help would be appreciated! Pic #1: Possibly sea urchin spines?
  8. Shark Tooth?

    I found this today on the bank of Penn's Creek, in a location that is called "Fossil Rock", or "Pulpit Rock" in Weichert, PA. I've found other sharks teeth in my life, but never any in the mountains. (I usually find brachiopods in my front yard, about 20 minutes away from where I found this.). The front looks like a shark tooth, but the back just looks like rock to me, or maybe a chip of bone or something. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
  9. Fossil

    Anyone know what this might be? I found it in a creek known for aquatic fossils in northern Texas/ Texoma area but I can’t identify at all. Claw, tooth, tusk,...? The black part is hollow
  10. Venice Shark Tooth

    I while back I took a trip to venice beach and found this tooth.
  11. Pathological shark teeth

    Are pathological shark teeth random occurrences, genetic mutations, or the result of feeding damage? I understand that pathological extant shark teeth show deformities similar to pathological fossil shark teeth. I presume that most of what we know about the subject is based upon modern observations. Is a pathological tooth replaced by a normal one in the tooth replenishment process or is that file always going to produce a deformed tooth? Thoughts, ideas?
  12. I like to have extant teeth in my collection to contrast with fossil teeth of the same or similar species. I bought these teeth at a tourist shop in Las Vegas a few years ago. They had been made into necklaces. I thought they might be H. elongata based on the root shape and would be interesting to display along with my fossil H. serra teeth. I am not convinced my ID is correct, especially considering the serrations go all the way to the tip. Any ideas?
  13. I found this heart breaker of a beautiful C. chubutensis tooth in a Lee Creek spoils pile in North Carolina. Since it was broken almost exactly in half longitudinally, it offered an interesting interior view of the structure of a fossilized shark tooth. In a process similar to that used in industrial quality control work, I evened out the rough edges and polished the now flat surface to reveal the fossilized core of the tooth and the contrasting enamel.
  14. I acquired these megs years ago, probably from a rock and fossil shop in Texas, USA. Is it at all possible to speculate where they might have originally been found based on their coloration and condition? Also, they have been "preserved" with what looks like clear lacquer. Is there a way to remove this without damaging the teeth? I would like to return them to somewhat of an "as found" condition. I realize they are poor quality specimens and not very large, but the shiny coating is bugging me!
  15. Does anyone keep extant shark teeth in their fossil shark teeth collections for comparison and reference? Is it poor form to ask for an ID on this forum of an extant tooth to see if it is related to a fossil tooth?
  16. Moroccan Squalicorax pristodontus

    Are all these three Moroccan shark teeth all Squalicorax pristodontus? Is there any other Squalicorax Sp. found there?
  17. Moroccan Otodus?

    Are all of these Moroccan shark teeth Otodus Obiliquus?
  18. Moroccan S. macrota?

    Are all of these Moroccan shark teeth Striatolamia macrota?
  19. Lee Creek ID and pathological?

    Please ID this tooth found in a Lee Creek spoils pile and is it pathological?
  20. Which Lee Creek Carcharocles Sp.?

    I found these in a Lee Creek spoils pile. Which ID is correct? (juvenile?) C. megalodon on the left, C. chubutensis on the right? Both C. chubutensis?
  21. Lee Creek A. superciliosus?

    Can anyone confirm that this tooth is A. superciliosus? Found in Lee Creek spoils pile, North Carolina
  22. Isurus Sp.?

    Is this tooth one of the Isurus species? Found on Topsail Island, North Carolina.
  23. Shark teeth from Belgium?

    Please help me identify these teeth. I bought them at a fossil shop, out of a box labeled "42 million years old discovered in Balegem, Belgium". Where I am confused is that there were several H. Serra teeth in the box, which from my research should not be found in this location. Thus all these teeth are suspect at this point.
  24. Could someone explain why there would be remains of shark food (whales, seals, large fish) but no evidence of sharks? I am sure there is a scientific reason why but for the life of me I can't figure out why a beluga whale could swim into the Champlain Sea 13,000 years ago and a shark didn't follow it in. Thanks in advance for the information!
  25. Hey all, I thought I would make a thread to show some of my shark teeth that I have collected from the Oxford Clay formation (mainly the Peterborough Member), feel free to comment if I have misidentified anything! Pre-Apologies, some of them are quite small.. Cheers, Jacob.
