  1. Fellow fossil hunters! I live in Jacksonville Beach, FL and have been collecting sharks teeth and shells on our local beaches for a decade. I have found some great teeth on the beach (mostly in the winter when the tourists have gone ) but have yet to find a megalodon tooth or even a fragment of one! My father had some beautiful meg teeth in his collection from when they would dredge for beach renourishment, St. Johns River projects, ect. So I know they are out there to find but I've never been lucky enough to come across one. Has anyone had any luck finding meg teeth in Jacksonville? If so, any tips on where to look would be GREATLY appreciated! I'm attaching a picture with a handful of my favorite finds over the years here in Jax Beach, enjoy! -Nikki
  2. Four Florida Fossils To Look At

    I took a short trip to visit my son in Florida. We were to meet up with @jcbshark to do a little fishing. Unfortunately, mother nature had other ideas for us. It poured for 4 straight days, the length of my stay. I believe rain tallies were officially over 14 inches while we visited. Sooooo, what was a person to do??????? GO FOSSIL HUNTING!!!!!! I did have the opportunity to surface hunt for a few hours in a housing development near my son. Yes I was soaked with rain, but it helped to shine up the shark teeth. A picture of my finds: A closer look at a few teeth: But I am here to ID a few things. 1. The first is a tooth that I think is equine in nature. I am confused in that every horse tooth that I have found in Florida is MUCH larger.
  3. Fossil ID 2 (Shark Tooth)

    Hi. I just got back into shark teeth collecting. Use to do it with my grandfather in Florida when I was much younger. I posted on tooth earlier. This is other one that I needed help with. Have no idea what type it is. Its a little over an inch from top to bottom. Any thoughts. Thank you in advance for any comments. Mark
  4. Fossil ID 1 (Shark Tooth)

  6. Hunting in Gainesville Creeks now Illegal

    Just recieved some bad news today from Dr. Hulbert of the University of Florida. All urban creeks inside of Gainesville are now completely off limits to fossil hunting and collecting of any kind due to people damaging the creeks. This includes inside of the parks such as Alfred A Ring and Loblolly parks. First time offenders will be cited with a $125 fine, and repeat offenders will be charged up to $15,000. This is a perfect example of people not following the rules ruining it for the rest of us. This was the link he included in his email to me. https://alachuacounty.us/news/article/pages/Illegal-Digging-Harms-Gainesvilles-Urban-Creeks.aspx Looks like all of us newbies will have to go find other creeks and do more research to find some decent locations. Best of luck to you all.

  12. Tooth or something else?

    Hello all, trying to help my daughter figure this one out. Found in silt in 5 feet of water around Fort George Island within the Timucuan Preserve in Jacksonville, Florida. Thank you
  13. Id needed

  14. Venice Shark Tooth

    I while back I took a trip to venice beach and found this tooth.
  15. Peace River, FL Is this a tusk?

    So I have been going to my usual spot in the Peace River for the past 5 years, always finding something larger or new! This time it looks to be a tusk? This was actually nearby where I found the mastodon/gompothere molar 2 years ago. It was in bedded in the river bed and when it was removed, some piece broke off. It's also fairly heavy for it size. Also, I do have a fossil permit. Can some link me or provide me info about legal concerns of owning this?
  16. Shark tooth piece

    I found this piece of a sharks tooth on a trail In the sand I was wondering if anyone knew what it was? is it a meg tooth.
  17. Greetings fellow fossil enthusiasts! I don't know what this thing is. I've shown it to several other fossil guys in Houston and they don't know what it is either. I think it's from a fish of some sort, other than that I have no idea. I found it in Hogtown Creek in Gainesville so it's probably Late Miocene-Pliocene. Scale bar is in Millimeters. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  18. Found while looking for shark teeth. Very symmetrical.
  19. While searching for sharks teeth, I found this object. It wasn’t down in the surf, it was up in the drier part of the sand. Has pretty distinctive groove on one side.
  20. Chubutensis or Angustiden

    So I have posted a picture of this tooth before but I was recently showing it to a buddy and he said it looked like a chub but the cusps make me think angustidens. I want to know what you all think. I found this in an area that the formation is exposed in spots. The clay is a thick white clay speckled with tiny pebbles and other fossils. my geological maps that i used to find the location say that it is of Miocene age in the hawthorn group. However I am starting to think that there might be older clays exposed in the area. Please help me figure out what kind of tooth I have here, thank you.
  21. Shark teeth

    Hi all! Thank you for your patience with a first time poster! I was recently searching for fossils in Florida, and came across these two specimens. Actually, I was searching for fossils at an estate sale in Florida, so no glory to these finds lol. I know nothing of their origins, although there was enough material that seemed local to make me think Florida, or at lease SE U.S. They are approximately 2" in length, and have an odd second cusp present. Anyone want to take a stab at the sort of shark? Thank you in advance for sharing your expertise.
  22. Any help anyone could provide to help identify the species of the teeth I found I would greatly appreciate it. I believe #1 is a Tiger Shark. Thank you in advance for any help.
  23. I found this shark tooth at a beach near St. Augustine. I have no clue what species it came from. It kind of looks like a goblin shark, but it also looks like the front tooth of a longfin mako. I have no knowledge of fossils and stuff, I just like to collect them because they look cool. Also, is the object on the right (in the last picture) a ray mouth plate? It was found on the same beach as the shark tooth was.
  24. Hi Fossil Friends, I have some big bone chunks that were recovered from the Peace River (Bone Valley Formation, Hawthorn Group, Florida). There a couple of partial bones here that can possibly be ID'ed. There are also 3 "bone balls" - I am guessing these are the broken-off ends of larger bones, but can they be ID'ed? We hung on to these in the hopes they might be something interesting or unusual. But given their condition, it might be difficult or impossible to ID them. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks! MikeG
  25. Possible whale tooth?

    Found this guy yesterday looking for shark teeth. I’m guessing some kind of whale but need help with this one.
