  1. Meg find ?

    Is the middle tooth a meg ?
  2. Two teeth ... maybe ? Ideas ?

    Found several fossils this morning shark tooth hunting on the beach and was hoping y’all might could tell me what they might be , thanks !
  3. Possible Megalodon Chunk?

    Hi! I’m an amateur fossil hunter from the southern coast of GA. While on a dredged Island, I encountered a fragment of something. I believe this could be a carchorodon megalodon tooth fragment because of it’s smooth “enamel”, sandy texture, and thinkness. Dozens of megalodon teeth have been found in this area. Thoughts? This would help a lot!
  4. Some small fossils

  5. Fossil finds

    Anyone have and ideas on this ? Found it whilst shark tooth hunting on the beach .
  6. Silurian Brachiopods from Georgia

    For reference, here's a link to my recent trip report: There have been two things I've been wondering about the trip: IDs for the brachiopods, and clarification on formation member (I know that it's Red Mountain Formation, but there's multiple members and I'm not sure which one this particular exposure is from). Anyone more knowledgeable on Silurian shells like to chime in?
  7. In May I will be visiting the country of Georgia and I will like to look for some fossils while I am there. Is here anyone who has been to this country or have some information about fossils over there? I will visit the museum of natural history in Tbilisi which looks interesting but I can't find any info about fossil hunting over there. I will be traveling through most of the country and it will be great to bring back some souvenir like that for my collection.
  8. Possible cetacean?

    Hi folks. I found this in a river in south Georgia where there are miocene/eocene fossils. Cetaceans are found here fairly regularly. The flat portion is broken in a weird way, but I'm thinking maybe this is part of a scapula? Thanks very much for looking at it.
  9. At this Murray County location, trilobites are not the only thing that can be found. Last April, I contacted Dr. David Schwimmer, who is a Professor of Geology at Columbus State University in Georgia. Dr. Schwimmer has also published a couple papers on the fossils from the Conasauga Formation. I wanted to see if he could identify a small piece of matrix that contained something that I have not found before, or since. I was thinking that it was some type of algae, so I sent both halves of the fossil down to him so he could examine them and see if he could come up with an ID. Here are the two halves- A couple months later, I was contacted by Dr. Schwimmer and he provided the below response. "We put your anomalous specimen in the SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) finally, and it turns out there was no image! That means it has no relief, its a color feature, almost certainly iron oxide colors. My interpretation is that it must be some sort of relict carbon-based plant material, which would suggest, as you first assumed, some sort of algae. Since there is no tissue I would rule out red algae, which usually have carbonate crusts, leaving a green alga as the likely source". I let him keep whatever piece that he wanted and he returned the other piece. Here are close ups of the piece that I have in my collection.

  14. No better way to spend a sunny, 52 degree Georgia day than fossil collecting with my son. This is the first time in about 22 years that we have collected together. We went down to the Conasauga River in Murray County to collect Cambrian trilobites. Unfortunately the River was running high and fast and it did not make Collecting easy. I had to do some fancy climbing to get to the area that I wanted to collect. Using tree limbs to hold onto, I was able to navigate the slippery slope. I only took two pictures of partial trilobites that I found, I decided not to take any more pictures because I was worried about dropping my phone in the river. Here are some of my other finds- all Aphelaspis brachyphasis, with the exception of this first piece, I believe that this is a partial Eugonocare , I have only found one other partial one in the Times I have visited this site.
  15. Today I made a quick stop on Dug Gap Mountain Road in Dalton, Georgia and did a little collecting in the Lower Silurian Red Mountain Formation. At this location you find imprints of shells, though I cannot find any information on them.
  16. Good morning ladies and gents. I am looking for a few places I could take my daughter in about a week for some fossil /gem/ artifact hunting (not in Florida for the artifact hunting). My daughter is 9 and fairly experienced in gem and fossil hunting but has never found an artifact . I would like to stay in the southeast within a few hours drive and a semi winter friendly location (we do have waders for shallow water). Alabama, Mississippi, Georgia, or north Florida is where we are looking. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Y’all have a Merry Christmas!
  17. St. Marys river 11-11-18

    Did some blackwater diving in the St. Marys river this past weekend. The biggest Meg tooth was a hair under 6” and also found a nice little benedini!
  18. ID help

    What are these ? Driving me nuts searched for hours online
  19. Few Fossils In Chert

    Not sure of identification., but a little nice. South central Georgia, the oldest deposits in this area indicate 35 mya and younger. The longest point across flat scale = 3.75cm Rodney
  20. Well I did not have much luck opening Mazon Creek concretions today, so I figured that I would try something about 190 Million years older, so tonight I was whacking Conasauga shale matrix from Murray County, Georgia, looking for Cambrian Aphelaspis brachyphasis trilobites. I did not go through much matrix tonight, but I did find a few trilobites, but the ones that I found do not represent the quality of trilobites that come from that location. As I continue to go through this matrix, I guarantee that I will find some pretty specimens and I will post my finds. Here is what I found tonight-
  21. Hi everyone, I found this in January of 2017 on Shark tooth island on the Savannah River in Georgia. Always have been curious what it is. The area has dredged material and contains fossils from the Miocene, Pliocene, and Pleistocene. It is slightly conical and symmetrical, uniform, and ovalish in cross section - straight in profile with no discernible curvature. In profile, one side is smoother and striated, the other coarser, dimpled, with elevated black speckles. It is not porous inside like other bones from the area. It appears to have schreger lines. I'm not sure if it is some sort of tusk, but I havn't seen other tusks without some degree of curvature. Overcast day here in Seattle. If photos aren't clear enough I'll upload some others on a sunny day. Thanks!
  22. This is a recent find on a sandbar where I find land and sea fossils. Reminds me of a human fibula, but I really have no idea. I also found 3 turkey verts, sea turtle fragments and shark teeth on the same day. This looks like it will be easily identifiable, but can provide more info if needed. Thank you for any help you can give me. Holocene- Silver Bluff Back Barrier Complex: Georgia Coast near Savannah
  23. Fossil Snail

    Any thoughts or species for this fossil snail that I found in south central Ga, I think the deposits in this area are 35 million years and younger. This snail was busted out of a void or crack in a larger rock.
  24. Roadtrip from NC to GA

    Hey! I might be going on a road trip, from the coast of NC to the Georgia mountains, in search of trilobites. Below is a pic of the fastest way to get there. I'm wondering if anyone could point out fossil spots around the where the Tennesee, Georgia and North Carolina border is as well as any along the rest of the route. Of course this route is not set in stone and I could move it around to accommodate fossil spots. Thanks, Tyler
  25. Trip to GA for Agatized Coral!

    Hey folks! You may have seen Cris's video of our Agatized Coral hunt recently (I was a little behind on editing!). But here is my take on it, and my finds! We don't always get to head up to GA to hunt for coral, so this was a very nice change of pace. We found some really killer pieces!
