  1. Great White Shark Possibly Killed off Megalodon

    Featuring @boess as lead author, no less! https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2019/02/14/us/megalodon-extinct-earlier-scli-intl/index.html
  2. Hey! New member here wondering if anyone would be interested in getting a group together for the weekend to do some creek hunting for megs, angies, whites, or other fossils. Message me if you're interested and know the area better than I (I'm from the upstate).
  3. Gmr yesterday

    Went to gmr for a couple hours yesterday, nothing notable except this real nice red great white it pretty good condition. The pictures make it look orange, but it is very red in person.

  5. Best Shark Tooth Finds of 2018!

    Hey TFF members! So big news, I hit 1,000 subscribers on YouTube which was a big goal for me, so I'm happy to have made it! Thanks to everyone who has checked out my videos, it really does mean a lot. I put together a video of some of my favorite shark tooth hunting moments since I started making videos about 6 months ago. This one is full of action, I promise! Give it a watch if you are interested and have some time
  6. Good day to everyone! Thought I’d share some the teeth found on Milnerton and Big Bay beach here in South Africa. Any help identifying would be appreciated - I’m still relatively new so the more worn and broken teeth have me clueless. More pictures to follow!
  7. Hey TFF members! Cris and I got out to explore a brand new site for us recently, and it did not disappoint. This was a scouting trip so we didn't find as much as usual, but we will definitely be going back soon now that we had a chance to figure out the site a bit. This video is pretty eventful, from me wearinf a duck mask and playing a banjo, to Cris buying me a gift, to finding some really cool fossils in an interesting location! Give the video a watch if you're interested and have some time!
  8. Megalodon or Great White Tooth?

    This tooth was found in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It measures to about 1.5 inches. The shape of the tooth was interesting and unlike what I had seen previously, so I asked around and was told it was most likely a tooth from a Megalodon, however I remained skeptical due to its size. I would like to know what animal this tooth came from. Thank you in advance.
  9. Interesting story. https://riverheadlocal.com/2018/12/14/local-teacher-finds-likely-fossilized-shark-tooth-on-baiting-hollow-beach/
  10. serrated mako?

    While collecting teeth I was surprised when what I thought was a ventral mako/ great white tooth had serrations (strong near the base, fine near the middle, nothing at the tip). At first I thought this was a damaged hemipristis, but the shape of the tooth was different and serrations were smaller. The tooth seems to be essentially the same as an unserrated mako/ great white, however the serrations are obvious. Is this a transitional tooth between fossil mako and modern great white? Or does this represent a totally different species?
  11. Shark teeth

    I’m pretty sure the white tooth is a fossilized mako and I think the dark is a juvenile Megalodon or great white. Pretty sure it’s a meg what do you guys think?
  12. rapp beach trip

    While I am eager to check out the creek in the woods, have had some trouble with tick ricketssiae, and also not eager to trudge through swamp. So I paddled over to a nearby beach on the Rappahannock, hoping all the recent flooding had deposited some shark teeth. Mostly I found whale bone (will post after dries), but was rewarded in two hours with five white shark/ mako teeth, a hemi and a few others. Most were weathered but two are nice. Also found a couple of giant tree oyster shells (??: common in the swampy creek) but with strong luster (?). Maybe something similar extant??? The penny for scale is 0.75 inches (19mm) in diameter.
  13. Quick California Hunt

    Was in California for work and hoped to meet up with a friend for an evening hunt after work but he unfortunately couldn’t make it. He was kind enough to map a location where I could possibly find a tooth. I only had about an hour and a half after getting finished with work for the evening and found the location. Access was pretty easy to get to which was nice on my knees which aren’t getting any younger. The area looked promising but having never hunted the area I was not optimistic I would find anything. There were areas that held some scattered broken fossilized mammal bone so I knew I must be in the right area. After looking for almost an hour I found a few fossilized fish verts that were very weathered and not in the best condition but that got me excited. Finally sitting right on the surface I spotted my first tooth. At first glance, I thought I had found a small hastilis but after wiping it off, I could see the serrations and knew I had found my first ever great white! It was small but complete and made my day. I looked some more and found a very worn, broken, sunbleached lemon shark tooth root and then a very broken small great white. As it became time to head back to the hotel, I decided to take the last ten minutes to go a little further down the hill. As I was walking I saw some serrations sticking out of the hill. There wasn’t much and I thought I might have found a nice tiger shark tooth. As I started pulling of the dirt and more of the tooth was exposed, I realized it was large. My hand was shaking as I pulled it out. It was complete and large. My second Great white and a beauty! It measures 2 3/16 inches. I am very thankful to the person who put me on this spot. Great way to end a week of work.
  14. What do you guys think? I thought great white but this root is throwing me off.
  15. Shark Tooth Changing Color?

    Hey guys, not really sure about this because I've never seen it happen, and I cant find anything online about it. One of my recent Great White tooth finds has started changing color. I haven't tried cleaning it whatsoever either. When it was found, it was a grayish black. Now it has some very prominent light brown colors coming out in it. Is there a good reason for why this might happen? Not sure if its normal or not. Just do not want it to become damaged. Here's a photo showing the coloration that is becoming more and more visible.
  16. Our trip to GMR

    So we finally made it out to GMR to do some hunting. We left Greensboro about 7 am and arrived around 9:15. We walked around for a little bit to scout some areas, and finally found a good starting point. It was slow at first, but we started making really good progress when I found a 2" goblin shark tooth. We continued on throughout most of the day finding tooth, after tooth, after tooth... We found several Meg fragments, some super nice great whites, mako's, 3 mosasaur teeth (the smaller round one might possibly be a crocodile but were not 100% sure), and quite a few belimnites. After we finished for the day we stopped by @powelli1's house so he could check out some of our finds. He's a great guy and has an absolutely amazing fossil collection. When I say he has 15,000 fossils in one room, I'm not exaggerating whatsoever... He helped confirm the ID's of some of our finds, and was kind enough to give us a tour of his collection in the process. After heading home we decided to photograph some of the nicer finds and count everything we brought back. All together we had 944 shark teeth, 3 mosasaur (except if that smaller round one is not a mosasaur tooth), 1 unidentified fish tooth, and 59 belimnites. Here's some photos of everything we found today.
  17. Went out hoping recent rains would have washed out some teeth. Mostly washed away the angel teeth and drum esophageal teeth I've been finding (a few of each). Usual sand shark spikes and more vertebrae than usual (gravelly?) Finally found a weird pinkish white banded mako, or rather great white, slant length 2". Seemed a good time to quit.
  18. Hey everyone! I found this tooth in North Myrtle Beach while vacationing with my family. It washed up during high tide while I was playing with my kids in the surf. I’m interested in what type of shark this may have come from - my own internet searching leads me to think it is a great white tooth, though I’m unsure of the exact species (there seems to be a few different great whites). I want to know all I can find out about this tooth! I was absolutely ecstatic to find this thing, it is far different than all of the other smaller, black teeth I have found over the years. Thanks in advance!
  19. Hi everyone, I was just seeking a little information on the relationship between the Megalodon, Angustidens, Auriculatus, and modern Great White sharks. Clearly the modern Great Whites are the most recent subspecies, but what about before them? Was Megalodon first with each shark decreasing in size until today's Great Whites? Did Angustidens come before or after Auriculatus? Any kind of clarification would be appreciated!! Thanks
  20. Wondering what the shark teeth experts think of these. Found on man-made dredge island in Savannah River. I'm thinking A is great white and. B might be a bull shark, but am not positive and don't have guesses about the others. Thanks!
  21. The Great Cosmopolitodus

    I have some questions surrounding the extinct species of Giant White Shark, Cosmopolitodus hastalis. I think it was a fascinating creature, but for reason it doesn't seem to be brought up much. As far as I know, it was a very large shark that lived during the Miocene Epoch, and scientists believe it to be a possible ancestor to the extant Great White Shark, the biggest and meanest shark of our present day oceans. What I'd like to know is what was this shark really like? Did it look similar to the Great White? How do we think it behaved? How exactly does it fit into the lineage of the Great White? How big was it? Did it share the seas, or even possibly become prey for, the mighty O. megalodon? And finally, WHY do people call it "Mako" if it clearly isn't one?? Obviously, not all of these questions have concrete answers but I'd like to hear what you all know about the species. Google search results can only tell so much. Do you know of any good sources where I could read up about it in greater detail? I just think it's a really cool species, and I'd love to know more about it. Thanks!
  22. Jacksonville GW

    Found a great new beach along the St Johns this past weekend and when night came I knew I was leaving teeth there and had to go back asap. Unfortunately I am not a morning person and the tides this week were early morning or at night. I chose to a night search not knowing how hard it is to surface collect teeth with just a headlamp. Nevertheless in my few hours combing the beach I found over 60 mostly very little teeth, but found this awesome GW to my surprise. The root was sticking out of the sand and I did not think it was a tooth, but had to investigate and I am very glad I did. For sure my best quality tooth so far (IF ONLY THE TIP WERE STILL THERE!!! but they gotta eat too I suppose).
  23. Carcharodon carcharias (Linnaeus 1758)

    From the album Pisces

    Longest edge: 6 cm. From the Middle Miocene in the area around Charleston, SC, USA. Recieved on a trade with mattbsharks.
  24. Hello again! I was just wondering if this tooth is a Carcharodon Hastalis Tooth. I found it at Brownie’s Beach as I was combing the beach. Thanks for the help.
