  1. A couple of Florida Teeth to ID

    The two larger teeth were assumed to be megs when I found them Saturday in a housing development outside of Bradenton, Florida. When I arrived back home and looked closer, I began questioning if they could be Great White. The third tooth confuses me. I have not seen this thin enamel in the shark teeth I find. Is it fish (Barracuda?) instead?
  2. Found several Great White shark teeth in the creek last weekend along with a few makos. . My best find was this Great White (2-1/2") below. It has all serrations and a complete root. Also, found one partial whale inner ear bone (periotic) and one small croc tooth. The creek was really running high and fast the day before. due to rain on Friday.
  3. File great white tooth from NJ

    Hi guys, I went on a walk on the beach looking for shells, but I ended up finding some shark teeth... one of which is this great white tooth! I was wondering if it is a file tooth, and wanted someone to confirm it’s a great white and a file tooth cause I’ve never seen a GW from NJ or a file GW. TIA
  4. Northeast Florida Great White

    I made it to the beach last Saterday. We had a storm that came through and it was very windy. I found all the usual little teeth/bone fragements. This was the highlight of the day though. It's not big probably just over an inch, but the condition and colors are amazing and it's the first great white I have found on the beach in this area. I have found a bunch of other cool stuff this year too in the river, but I need to actually post it.
  5. Hi everyone! This tooth was found at Perú, at Nazca desert zone. I'm supposing that is a Megalodon tooth but maybe, you experts, could give me some more extra information about kind of Megalodon, size or age... I don't know really, but my son is asking me about and some more expert information will help me a lot ;-). The size for rule is in centimeters. Thank you very much for your kindness!
  6. Meg or great white teeth?

    Hi all! ive had these teeth in my collection for probably more then 4 decades and I always had them in with my meg teeth. But recent posts I’ve seen have me questioning that. They were given to Me When I was a kid starting out so I have no location or formation information. They may be too badly damaged for a positive I.d. But I thought I’d give it a try. Number 2 I’m still fairly sure is a meg Becuase the burlette is pronounced but number 1 and 3 are the ones I’m questioning. Thank you in advance!
  7. Megalodon or Great White?

    This is advertised as a Megalodon, but it looks Great White to me. I'm not sure if the bourlette is in fact absent or simply worn off. It's almost 2 3/4", so it would be a formidable Great White if it is one. Location isn't mentioned
  8. Meg or Great White Teeth?

    I recently bought some fossil shark teeth from the St. Johns River in Florida (recovered by a diver), which includes some megs and makos. A couple of the teeth--pictured below--also look like they could possibly be great white teeth, but I'm not sure. These are approximately the same size--the tooth on the left measures 2.3" and 2.1" along its slants and the other measures 2.1" on both sides. I think the one on the right is probably a meg as it looks like there may be thin bourlette. The one on the left doesn't appear to have a bourlette; however it obviously has some root wear, so it's possible a bourlette has eroded away. I've included additional photos below. What do you think about these? Any help in ID'ing them is much appreciated. Thanks! More pictures of the tooth on the left: More pictures of the tooth on the right:
  9. Best Teeth to Date!

    Had an amazing day at the river this morning and found the best teeth I have found to date! Largest semi-complete meg, and two great whites over 2”! The largest being 2.25” which is my new best GW. I saw the corner of the largest great white sticking out of the formation and low and behold it was complete (minus 2-3 serrations near the root), and super sharp! The others were found in gravel beds around a fallen tree.
  10. Great White Tooth Restoration

    I had a banged up Great White tooth; the root was almost completely missing, and the top of the crown was, too. I decided to restore it, mostly for fun. A bit of epoxy putty and paint later, the root is completely reconstructed and I reckon it looks pretty decent.
  11. Hey everyone! I've been offline for a very long time (too long ), but I'm finally back in the fossil game! I celebrated the start of the summer vacation the right way with quite a few hunts in Antwerp, and those hunts didn't disappoint When in Antwerp I especially look for shark teeth, but we find other stuff as well (bones and teeth of mammals), which I might make another post about We've also been on a mini vacation to the Belgian Ardennes so stay tuned for more photo spam One of the first finds was this beautiful C. hastalis (bonus points if you spot the matching nail polish ) A pic of how we find them around here Had a lucky day when we found this P. benedeni! Another lucky day when we found this beautiful hastalis And another VERY lucky day when found this beast of a C. carcharias This is the first we've found in all those years of searching for shark teeth!! (they're very rare here in Antwerp) We just couldn't believe our luck with this one Can't wait to explore this location further the coming weeks I hoped you enjoyed this summary of our hunts! Of course we find more teeth than just the 'picture perfect' ones, but these are definitely the highlights Kind regards, Angie
  12. Carcharodon hubbellii?

    Trying to get a ID. I was wondering if this was a Carcharodon hubbellii? Or what species it maybe. Thanks in advance
  13. 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.
  14. 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.

  20. 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
  21. 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?
  22. 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!
  23. 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?
  24. 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.
  25. 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
