cthamon posted a topic in Questions & AnswersOkay, I posted this yesterday and I’m not sure if it was that it was too long winded, in the wrong spot, or both. So, I will attempt to boil it down. There was a post on this topic in 2011 but I feel like there’s certainly more knowledge on this now. 1. What formations are megalodon teeth coming from? The plausible ones are the Parachucla (22ma), Marks Head (18ma), and Goose Creek Lime (3.5ma), all within the umbrella Hawthorn formation. The CofC Museum lists almost every specimen as coming from the Goose Creek Lime, yet the hottest spots at best have the Raysor formation(2.5ma) exposed. 2. Are said spots only good underwater where the river has cut through to the former three? 3. Is material between the Marks Head and Goose Creek era extant in any areas? People have suggested that the size of some teeth would place them in the middle of these two time periods, unless there’s reason to believe they’re reworked. 4. Wanting to see pictures of the formations mentioned (excluding Marks Head which is only subsurface), in addition the Wando and Chandler Bridge formations if anyone has pictures lying around.
Hello all, I was wondering if anyone could offer advice on fossil hunting in the low country area (South Carolina) My 8 year old has really found an interest in it and I am his ride. (Lol) I am not looking for anyone to give up their secret spots (if you have suggestions, GREAT), but rather what is a good start for both of us? Unfortunately I will be deploying in a few weeks, so trying to get as much time in as I can. The bright side is that I will be able to research it more while I am gone. ANY advice would be much appreciated. SN: We have been to Saw Mill Branch twice, but after reading more into it... the law seems pretty iffy and I don't want to take any chances.
