  1. Worn meg/great white

    Hi, I found this tooth in Florida Miocene Polk county. There are serration impressions on it but I don’t know you can see them from the pics.
  2. I wanted to share a small collection of GW teeth I've acquired over a few years. For today I'll just post pics of those I have from 1 location. Tomorrow I'll post a few more. I don't have a lot of variety location wise, but I love these teeth and enjoy watching for deals that do occasionally pop up from time to time. First up are the teeth from Peru. Most are pretty worn, though some of the larger teeth have very nice serrations. The color of these teeth astounds me, from shades of pink, blue, gray, brown, orange, and yellow. I don't have much information about where they originated in Peru, but they would be Miocene/Pliocene in age.

  8. Washington tooth (not a wooden presidential one)

    Hello everyone, I'm a little out of my element, here. I found a tooth the other day, while rockhounding the Quaternary alluvial deposits of the North shore of Grays Harbor. The tooth is a little tumble worn. I believe it may have had serrations on the edges, but those have since worn off, leaving a worn edge. My guess is Great White, but that is a guess based on the fact I found it in Quaternary sediments. Uneducated otherwise, and maybe some hopeful thinking mixed in. Your thoughts would be appreciated. I understand that sharks teeth in Washington are almost as scarce as hens teeth.... Measurements are in mm. Thanks, Chris
  9. Unusual Markings Shark Tooth

    Hi, This question is between categories. Has anyone seen markings (numbers) on a shark tooth like this? I have tried to wipe them off with acetone, and they will not come off. Any idea how they were applied or how to remove them?
  10. Great White C. carcharias with cusps?

    Found an exceptional ivory colored fossil shark tooth that while it looks to be a Carcharodon carcharias it appears to have cusps. Also found a 2nd black fossil probable Great White shark tooth with cusps. Both were just found on the beach in North Myrtle Beach, SC. Neither has a bourlette and the serrations appear to me (limited experience) to be coarse vs fine in a meg. The white tooth is 1 15/16 in slant height. So it does not look like a tooth in the megalodon lineage-C. augustidens or C. auriculatus or C chubutensis. The thinness of the blade is in line with a GW. In looking at the Great White lineage, I believe I saw a picture of C. hubbelli with small cusps. However this was a Pacific shark-California and Peru. Other fossils found on the beach in the general area were mouth plate from a burr fish, a number of Sea Robin skulls and a mammalian molar (will be posting that for id-horse,deer, tapir or camel), a number of great white teeth (I am pretty confidant) that do not have any cusps. I have hunted these beaches yearly for a number of years and have found fossils from the Cretaceous, Miocene, Pliocene and Pleistocene so cannot specify with certainty an age. It appears that the serrations are smaller near the tip of the blade. Would appreciate any help, suggestions about this tooth. This is probably the 2nd finest tooth (Lee Creek broad form Mako) I have ever found. A find of a lifetime!
  11. rapp beach hunting

    With deer hunting season started, I'm avoiding the woods area in favor of beach hunting. We have had several windstorms from the north, which should throw up stuff on the beaches I hunt. Gave away all my bigger mako teeth in Singapore, so need to restock! So far, I've had several good trips for shrimp coprolite burrows (will post what I have later) but not much teeth. Today was nice weather-wise however the water (cold and clear) was very high at low tide, so I need a blow-out wind (from SW) to get to the best spots (shell lines). I was lucky today. Although very few of the usual small teeth were in the wash, I spotted several "teeth" that I could barely reach and two turned out to be mako/ great white. One ugly/great character tooth was the biggest I've found this year at over 2 1/2" (6.5 cm in photos). More of a curve to the tooth blade than other makos I've found, usually almost flat like the 1 1/2" pretty one. Also found a "whale bone" with parallel long indentations on one side (perpendicular to the 'grain' visible on two sides). Curious if this is a structural feature/ specialized bone or maybe just weathering?
  12. Shark Tooth Identification Help

    Hi, I recently bought this tooth from a friend, but I am uncertain which species it belongs to. The root is very thin with great white characteristics, but the lack of serrations on the blade is more like a mako. My best guess is that it is a Giant White Shark (Charcharodon Plicatitis). It measure 2.75 inches. The last 2 photos show the tooth in comparison to a Great White tooth on the right side and a Mako Shark tooth on the left side of the tooth in question. What do you believe it is? Thank you for helping me out.
  13. Hello everybody So this is a question not directly regarding fossils, but I feel this is nevertheless the right place. Is there any information on how big the teeth of modern great white sharks can get? For Megalodon there is a great amount of information regarding the size of the teeth. But for modern great whites I only find information about the size of the whole shark. I would like to make a small display with my 5.64 inch Meg tooth and a modern great white. I was able to get a 2.4 in modern white shark tooth. But I dont know if this is big or average. Thanks for your help

  16. Baja shark teeth and ?

    I received a handful of shark teeth from an older local gentleman's collection who told me they were from Baja near the Sea of Cortes between Santa Barbara and Lorentz. I assume they are great white teeth, but I'm hoping for a better geological context if possible (age and formation/group ideally, even if just suspected). I've done some research, but haven't turned up much. I saw a reference to the El Cien Fm, but am hoping for some input from others who have far greater knowledge than I do. Along with the teeth came a small chunk of bone that also came from around the same area. Input on what it is or might have come from would also be appreciated. The largest tooth is 2 and 6/16ths in and the smallest is 2 1/16th in. The bone is 3 3/16ths in long and 1 2/16ths in wide.
  17. Need help identifying possible shark teeth

    I have just started this new venture in my life and these are what have started it. My great grandmother traveled back and forth from Indiana, Florida and Arizona. So these could have been found in those locations. She always looked for Indian artifacts on her own in her travels. I've had these in a box in storage forever and was looking through them and thought these may be shark teeth, maybe used by Indians. Opinions?
  18. Another tooth I found at Venice FL. I’m thinking a very worn and beat up great white. I think it has character. What do you think? Thanks! -HT
  19. Running a bit late on this trip report for a trip to some Yorktown Formation sites in Virginia on 4/28/19 with @Gizmo. The water was way colder than we expected, so a two day trip got whittled down to a long one-day trip. After a beautiful, but cold, day on the water we came away with 20+ pounds of fossils and ichnofossils. Below are some highlights. Sorry in advance for using a coin as a reference and for the less than optimal pictures. Teeth are uncleaned, but you can see hints of blue, black marbling and red/copper. Some random shark teeth and mammal teeth. The hemipristis is 2.01". (I am still super stoked about that. My first!)

  20. Largest Great White Tooth?

    Hello alll! Ive been a fossil hunter for years and recently dug up this Great White tooth at a site close to where I live here in Cali. Was wondering how big is the largest great white tooth ever found? Thanks.
  21. Hello everyone. It's been a while since I posted a trip report, but I thought I would share my finds from yesterday. The rivers here in eastern North Carolina have been at un-collectible levels for the most part since last September when Hurricane Florence paid us a visit. Well, looking at the levels on the Tar for the last week or so, I saw a golden opportunity to hit the Tar right as the river dropped to a collectible level. And hopefully be the first one there! I had the day off and a fossil Buddy took a half day off of work. We hit a total of about 15 locations, all Rushmere member of the Pliocene Yorktown Formation. The first couple of spots we stopped at were a disappointment. Much of the upper cliff had slumped off and covered the fossil layers. But then things picked up. Here are the amazing finds! Great whites, I found the smaller of these two. My buddy found the larger. It is exactly 3 inches. Mine is a measly 2 1/4. Mine both sides after cleaning A mako I found, kind of beat up but the largest I have found from this area. more to come .................

    Great white sadly stolen
  23. Hey! I got these fossils for my birthday and I just wanna know if they are real or not? They are classified as fish fossils, Great White teeth, and petrified wood. These are all from my local gem shop which I bought many real fossils from before.

  25. 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).
