  1. Suffolk, UK shark teeth

    Hey everyone! I'm trying to ID my shark teeth from my Bawdsey trip and I think I have a couple figured out but I'm having a hard time finding any references to Suffolk shark teeth. In the picture where they're all lined up, I think the last four are Striatolamia macrota and teeth 2-4 are possibly Cosmopolitodus hastalis. I'm not sure about #5. Number one has me wondering if it's possibly Great White. It has very faded serrations. I'll try to post photos in a way that make sense.
  2. My last fossil hunt in England

    Things have been really hectic over the last month in preparation (and actual event) of our international move. We left England on 27 September and stayed in Denver, CO for a week. We are now in Cheyenne, WY for the next 4 years. Before we left England I wanted to go on one last fossil hunt, and it was one of the best trips ever! On 23 Sept I set out for the beach at Bawdsey. It’s a mostly flint pebble beach with exposures of London Clay. It’s supposed to be good for shark teeth and it did not disappoint! Previously, I’ve only found up to 2 shark teeth at any location and that was on a miracle day. This day I found 10 and a quarter (that still counts, right?)! I found a few flint belemnites, or so they would appear. A lot of fossilized bone (the first I’ve ever found!). And some really pretty and sparkly chunks of pyrite. There is also a ton of pyritized wood, and some of the best preserved I’ve seen but I didn’t take any. Every time I found a shark tooth I would squeal with excitement. I’m glad I had the beach to myself for the 3 hours because I sounded like a kid finding hidden Easter eggs. Needless to say it was an amazing fossil day. I already miss England so much and wish I were back.
  3. English Meg number 2!?!?

    Well following on from my post yesterday, I headed down to the same beach after work again. This time with no lightning or heavy rain to worry about. Started scanning the shingle picking up a few smaller teeth, the plan was to head up the cliffs maybe 500 yards and check at the base of them as this is where the better teeth are normally located. However, upon getting there, the cliffs were clearly not safe with many parts having overhanging material! My concerns were soon confirmed when a huge section came down a bit further down the beach. No tooth is worth getting buried for, so I soon changed to looking about halfway down the beach in the red crag material where you get rarer teeth some with really nice patterns. 5 minutes later I found this, a gorgeous 70mm Meg tip! This one was a lot less worn than the usual ones but unfortunately not complete! None the less I was still very happy! No further teeth and with darkness closing in I left happy again! Thanks for reading everyone!!! (Dear moderators, is there anyway you can rotate the photos? I am unable to! Thanks!!)
  4. English Megalodon!

    Had a quick trip down to my local beach after work. We have had massive storms along with large spring tides so the red crag cliffs have taken a battering. Dodging heavy rain, thunder and lightning. Found nothing of major significance for an hour and was getting soaked through so decided to head back to the car with my tail between my legs. Walking along and this was just lying on the shingle! 95mm long just sitting there!!! My first complete Meg. Needless to say I was rather happy! Thanks for reading!
  5. Hi to Forum members; I am an amateur rock collector who likes to look for fossils. For the most part I have not found anything fantastic but I am hopeful. I kindly request any information and or comments about a recent flint specimen from my back garden in Ipswich, Tuddenham Road. I have other photos of the flint that show unusual structures. On those photos, I used my photo app to adjust the exposure to get more fine detail. If it will help, I would gladly share. Also from my back garden, I found a petrified seed/pod/nut shell. Can someone help me identify what it is. May thanks! Munchy2
  6. ***Picture Heavy*** Went down to my local beach after work on Monday with the intention of looking for plant seeds from the London Clay beds. After waiting half an hour for the tide to recede i could get to the best material.... Within the first five minutes something large caught my eye in one of the material piles.....See if you can spot it... A nearly perfect 58mm Otodus! With intact cusps and serrations, maybe an Otodus Aksuaticus? Needless to say it was a bit of a surprise! Found a few of the usual Striatolamia teeth in situ. And a bit of a ray plate. Found a fish vert slowly wearing out of the clay. A few seeds and a tiny bone (10mm) photos are of poor quality but any ideas of what it is? Seeds. Tiny bone. The tide had started to come in by that point so headed up onto the beach. Photos showing the red crag cliffs with the London Clay bed below it. This part of the beach is picked over a lot so i do not tend to spend to much time there. (Unless its productive such as after a storm where the shingle gets washed away to expose the London clay beds under it then it is incredible ) Few beach finds, the majority are a bit worn after being rolled around by the waves etc. Few partials of much bigger teeth. So in all, quite a productive couple of hours! Thanks all!

  16. Hello everyone! After a busy day at work on Friday i decided to take myself down to the local beach for a couple of hours of peaceful, stress-free shark tooth searching. The weather has been horrendous for the past week in this part of the UK with strong winds and waves smashing up the coastline. For those who are unsure of the location, it is a red crag formation located on top of London clay. As i got to the steps leading to the beach i could see that the cliffs had taken a hammering, there were falls everywhere, in some places as much as 2 metres had come down. Also on the beach the shingle had all been sucked out to see, leaving just sand and the underlying London clay which is a perfect time/conditions for finding fossils. I was getting teeth pretty much as soon as i got onto the beach, with most located at the base of the cliff sitting on the London clay. Cosmopolitodus hastalis/Carcharodon hastalis and Otodus obliquus making up the majority of the finds. Soon i also picked up a crab or lobster leg which is a first for this location. After spending a couple of hours there and with the worst back pain after being bent in half looking down i headed off home with the intention of getting up early and getting to the beach first thing. Back at the beach for 7am Saturday morning hoping i would be there before anyone else, sure enough no other mad souls were around and i had the beach to myself again. Didn't find as many as the previous evening with the reason that overnight it hadn't been as rough as i had hoped it would be and the high tide mark barely made it to the base of the cliffs. Gosh darn it, i thought to myself. Never mind i will look over the same place as yesterday to see if i had missed any. Found a few Cosmopolitodus hastalis/Carcharodon hastalis again and then i spotted it. What looked to be a very black pebble sitting on its own on the sand. Strange i thought to myself. Picked it up, turned it over and my eyes widened. My first proper meg! And only 6cm long so by no means a biggie and very well worn but i didn't care! I spent another hour or so on the beach but nothing else major turned up. I am going to try again tonight as the conditions at the beach can change with a single tide so need to make the most of the good conditions whilst i can....If anyone can give me alternative or additional identifications or would like any more photos please ask. Thanks for reading everyone!
  17. London Clay Bone ID

    Hi all, Found this on the London Clay at Bawdsey, Suffolk, England. Have found other fish bones before but never one like this. Please may some help out with the identity of it! Cant find any bones similar looking on the internet and it has got me puzzled? Thanks everyone!
  18. Hi all! Have been out the past couple of weekends to my local sharks teeth spot - Bawdsey in Suffolk, the first three trips i spent on the first area of the beach directly below the red crag cliffs. Found a few but none of really any quality. Best one was a very pretty patterned Carcharocles auriculatus ? (Can anyone confirm?) seen in the first photo top left, and a very worn large tooth (seen in the second photo, looks a bit Meggy?) - I have no idea about species on this one! As well as the usual Carcharias hopei and Striatolamia macrota, a couple of fish verts, some seed pods and ray teeth. Had my most productive day ever yesterday though, after not finding to many previously in my usual spots, went to a spot slightly further along and ended up with 156 teeth in about two hours!! None that were out of the ordinary however just the usual species. Some kid on the beach who was also searching had a perfect Otodus, it must have been nearly 3 inches long!! I was rather jealous of him! Can anyone ID the larger tooth that is bottom left? Still after the 6 inch Meg from this spot! Thanks for reading!!!
  19. Bawdsey Trip - Tooth ID??

    Headed down to Bawdsey in Suffolk for a few hours. The beach has built up loads covering up the best big teeth grounds, still managed to find a few. Got the Striatolamia macrotas from the bottom of the shingle ridge and also a fish vertebra? (Can anyone confirm). The rest of the teeth were all from the red crag layer. Also found a possible cow shark tooth which i have never found! (Please say it is!!!) And some other fossil, i have found a lot of these previously but never as large. Apologies i cant take any better photos due to using my phone! If anyone can help with identifying these that would be marvellous! Thanks for reading guys and girls!
  20. Suffolk Tooth ID?

    Hi Guys and Girls. Going through some of my old teeth on the weekend and found the one below. Any ideas on what it is? Doesn't look like any shark tooth i have ever found from my usual sites. Thinking possibly fish? It is around 13mm long. Out of the thousands i have found over the years none are like this. Unfortunately, i am unsure of exactly where i got it, but would have been either the Rocks at Ramsholt (London Clay and Red Crag) or Bawdsey (London Clay and Red Crag) as these were the only two places i used to collect from. Have also included what i think is a Cosmopolitodus hastalis/ Carcharodon hastalis that i found a few months back at Bawdsey. If Mods want to edit photos to make brighter etc please do!! Thanks!!!!
  21. Little clam?

    Went out to a spot on the Nansemond River in Suffolk, VA, and it started to rain right after. We arrived, so we had to leave. Some iron concretions and this little thing were all I found. It looks like a clam, but it feels rougher than the other clams I’ve found so far. It was inside of a larger rock. I believe the area is mid-late Pleistocene. It’s about 2 cm wide.
  22. Red Crag Vertebra???

    My friend found this in the Red Crag at Bawdsey, Suffolk, unfortunately it fell apart upon retrieval. Is it a large fish Vertebra? Also found what looks like a small partial Meg down on the shingle, as well as a few other smaller teeth. I have also included a tooth that i found that is partially enclosed in rock, i have never found another like this. Any ideas on how it came to be?
  23. UK Sharks Teeth ID Please

    Hi, Most of these specimens i have found at Bawdsey, Suffolk. Is anyone able to give an identification on them please? After looking on the internet a bit, i think the majority are Cosmopolitodus Hastalis? However i am probably completely wrong! There are no visible serrations on any of the larger teeth. The first tooth was given to me, so i have no idea of where it was found. I will attach more photos in the thread. Thanks.
  24. What is this?
