On either end). Weight is 245 grams (Once again, I can't upload the MAIN shot, topside, so, this one may be more difficult to ID)
  2. What kind of bone might be, and from whom did it come? Length is 3 ¼” across top and 1 ¼” across bottom. Depth is 1 ½”. Weight is 60 grams (have another side view shot, but can't seem to upload it...)

  4. Coprolite?

  5. Good morning to all, I will be traveling to Seabrook, South Carolina on Saturday (6/15/19), and have been doing some research regarding potential sites to go shark tooth/fossil hunting. I have been fascinated with fossils and shark teeth my entire life, but never lived in a location to support this hobby. I've read that Summerville, Charleston, and Cooper River (maybe off-shooting creeks), are common spots, but I'd like to have a more calculated game plan than just stopping at random rivers/creeks LOL. After reading through several of the forums here, I understand that some basic advice would be to utilize google earth or maps, and attempt to locate "dredge spots" in rivers..? Would anyone be willing to help a newbie out with some research 101 type advice? Again, your craft absolutely AMAZES me!!! Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!!!

  12. I'm hoping to dive the Cooper River in the next month or so. Most of my questions were answered by watching a bunch of videos on Youtube and perusing the internets. The main question that I'm left with is "how much lighting do I need?" I see a BIG range, in terms of the brightness (or lack thereof) of lighting setups that people are using. From people using a ~500 lumens main light, to people using a helmet with a 6,000 lumens main light and two 1,000 lumens backups. I've currently got a 1,000 lumens light with a glove for my primary and ~600 lumens (I think it would be next to useless diving there...from the videos I'm seeing) for a backup. For the purposes of diving the Cooper, I am leaning towards putting together a budget helmet lighting setup. Budget, as in two self-contained 1,000 lumens main lights. My question...do those of you that have dived the Cooper think that two 1,000 lumens helmet mounted lights would be sufficient for a primary lighting source? For those of you that have put together a helmet, do you have any feedback on what did and did not work for you? ex. I see people using ~$40 skateboard helmets to mount the lights. If that works, I don't see the point of spending ~$80 for a "diving" helmet. I would appreciate any advice that you can offer. Thank you.
  13. Hello Everyone, Summer is here and the trades must begin ! ... If anyone is looking for some C. hastalis from the Cooper River, SC here they are. These were found diving (not by me I'm not crazy ... ok, not THAT crazy) I'm looking for something with a bit more color, complete (as complete as these examples ?) and any size really .. lightning, scorched, red, green, blue .. what have you. If you have seen my images in the past you will get my drift. I've attached a few below .... 4 for 1 .. 1 for 4 .. 4 for 4 ... I'm easy. They are all pushing 1.5-1.75 in Cheers, Brett Here are a few examples of what I'm looking for .....
  14. A Femur?

    Here's another puzzle. What are your thoughts about this? The bone is 13" long (not fully intact) and 5" at the widest point. Fossils from the area include equine, buffalo, mastodon, and cetaceans.
  15. What are These

    Good morning all, I have found a number of fossil bones over the years that look remarkably similar, yet I have no idea what the are. The most common physical attribute is a wedge shape with an almost triangle shaped indentation on one side. The fossils in the photos were found in the Cooper River in SC, which has fossils from many eras. I have found very similar bones 30 miles offshore in North Carolina in 110' of water, which leads me to think whale? I will be the first to acknowledge that they are of varying size (from 6" to over 12") and could be from completely different types of animals. I understand positive ID is likely difficult. I'm just eager to hear your thoughts. Thanks in advance!!
  16. Small Ivory or tooth?

    Found diving in the cooper river SC Thanks in advance
  17. Two recent finds from Cooper River SC

    Hello Forum Friends, I've got two recent finds, found during a dive trip to the Cooper river, that I'd like to I.D.. The first is very tiny, 5 ~ 6 mm on the long edge, with an unusual pattern (it's difficult to photograph something so small). The 2nd item, I believe may be a whale tooth frag. it's pretty worn, and split. The inner structure is visible.
  18. Christmas on the Cooper

    Spent the Christmas weekend on the Cooper River and really had a great time.
  19. Limb Bone from Cooper River SC

    Hello Forum members, I found this limb bone while diving the Cooper River in SC. I initially thought it likely to be a deer bone based on the overall size and proportions, but I'm unable to match it to any deer bone descriptions I've found. Any ideas?
  20. Hi All, I'm presenting another mammal tooth I found diving the Cooper River in South Carolina. You'll notice only a small percentage of the tooth is covered with beautiful brown enamel (or is it cementum?). When I found the tooth, it had complete 100% coverage. I had no idea it was so fragile. I dropped it into my goody bag, and unfortunetly (?) I was having a good dive and had picked up quite a few other fossils including some big megs. By the time I surfaced and emptied my bag, most of that beautiful brown enamel (?) was nothing but a big pile of flakes in the bottom of the bag. It's a real bummer. It was in very pristine condition when I picked it up. It must of been a very recent erosion, because otherwise the river would've stripped the tooth itself. Anyway, I'm not sure what it is...
  21. need help identifying these 2

    Found these on last dive trip to Cooper River Charleston, SC. the left one could be a whale tooth core but seems like ivory as it is layered and is kinda barky. Thanks
  22. Cooper River SC Mammal Tooth

    Hi All, I'm currently on a dive trip to the Cooper River in SC. I found this tooth the other day. The guys I'm diving with believe it to be a horse incisor. To me, it seems too straight to be horse.
  23. Fossilized clam with strange banding?

    While shark tooth hunting on Daniel Island in South Carolina, USA, fossilized clams are quite ubiquitous. So much so that my girls don't even pick them up. I love their round smooth shape so I collect them. I found this interesting one yesterday (low tide, January 2017) along the banks of the Cooper River. It has two smaller bands across one side. My hopes are that it is some sort of Indian artifact, though I know it's not likely. Anyone recognize what might have made these bands?
  24. Camel, Horse, Llama tooth????

    Hello. My girls and I found this tooth along the banks of the Cooper River in Charleston, SC, USA, while fossil hunting. I've seen pics of horse teeth, but this appears to be more flat than the squarer horse teeth I've seen. I found a few shots of llama or camel teeth online. You can see a bit of serration on the top of pic 3 which makes me think it definitely is a tooth, but a camel in SC?
