fossilnut posted a topic in Fossil ID@clay@caldiggerHad a very interesting 3 weeks in Nov/Dec beach hunting at North Myrtle Beach, SC. Every year their are different finds along with the old dependable stand-bys. Many I am familiar, some I believe I know what they are but would like confirmation from TFF members and others I have no clue. I try and be there during a high tide as I believe that it stirs up more material. This year, a KING tide occurred-a new term for me-but it occurs a few times a year when the moon is the closest to the earth. Unfortunately many homes were re-flooded after recovering from the hurricane due to this 8+ foot tide. While i did not hunt every day some days i went out morning and evening. Trying to catch (mostly not successful due to timing) a falling tide. Well here without further ado are the pictures. Starting with shark, then other fish, drum fish tooth, skate barb, sand dollar, inter casts clams, snails, complete (both sides) scallop shell and complete ark shell cast with some shell remaining, actual ark shell (only one I found the entire period). I will do a part 2 that focuses on mammal fossils I found. Edit Need help with id for 1st pic 3rd tooth in. Looks like a Carcharocles but cusplets flow into the root without making a distinct cusplet.
