  1. Hemi confirmation ID

    Hi. I believe this is hemi. My confidence on identifying is not the greatest. Getting there. Learning more every day. Any feedback is much appreciated. Thanks Mark

  3. Calvert Cliffs 2018

    So i dont post all the time anymore but as we approach the end of the year i always like to organize my finds and do a calendar. Well here are my finds for 2018 not a bad year and a found my benedini which is the rarest of the rare for Calvert. If anybody is interested in a calendar let me know i'm all done except for December still trying to find a couple more good finds! Hope everybody had a great 2018 and here is to an awesome 2019!!!!
  4. rapp creek hunting

    Went out to find a new spot. After a few unproductive but relaxing hours (not as humid, not many mosquitoes, lots of frogs), I found a spot that yielded a bunch of small teeth, including a cowshark and three angelshark teeth. Also found pieces of at least three tiger shark teeth (rare in my old spots) Found a piece of frog(?) jaw with three flattened teeth (small but bigger than most I've found). I thought I had found another Mako ventral tooth, but it has serrations, heavy at the bottom and fine in the middle edges of the blade. People here IDed it as a hemi ventral tooth. Picked up about 20 "drum teeth" but half lacked the distinctive glossy top and hollow bottoms (and a few black shell bits discarded with the small black round rocks). Hopefully the "vein" won't die out like the last spot!
  5. Hemipristis serra

    This is by far the largest Hemipristis I have ever collected. At 1.81 inches wide, it is wider than the next longest one in my collection.
  6. Matoaka beach, Choptank FM, Lower Miocene Before I start out, may I just say Matoaka is a beach not known for its shark teeth. Most fossil hunters go there for invertebrates, Which are incredibly abundant. Shark teeth are usually small, a bit worn, and take lots of work to find. The old saying (that I just invented) goes “If you want a chance at a meg, go to brownies. If you want lots of sharks teeth, go to Purse. If you want a snail, go to Matoaka. If you want to be told you can’t walk under a cliff go to Calvert Cliffs state park” I decided that I was going to walk as far as I felt I could and still get back with daylight. For the first stretch I found literally nothing of interest and the nagging fear that I was going home empty handed kicked in. I had set my mind to “Ecphora mode,” because sharks teeth were not gonna be found. The tide was lower than last time, so I got to have a good look at a new slide that looked really promising. I was right, it was littered with Ecphora. Unfortunately, almost none were extractable or worth the extraction. This one was a real heart breaker, big for me but sliced in half and in really loose clay.
  7. Huge hemipristis?

    From what I have seen of other hemi teeth, they generally aren't much bigger than 2". But this really looks like those, only much bigger. Any ideas?
  8. Low country river trip

    We took a trip to the river and came back with a bunch of teeth. Unfortunately we didn't find anything big and intact but the ones we did find had some nice colors. Am I correct that the teeth up top are makos and not sand tigers? Also, check out the size of what could have been with this angustiden, if only I could find one like that whole
  9. Megs and more

    We went to a new spot and It paid off! My girlfriend found some great megs. The pics should fill in the rest.
  10. One Perfect Mako Later

    I was pointed to a land site from a guy at the beach and found some great stuff in about an hour. Thanks for sharing your spot! The meg was a heartbreaker! The whole lot
  11. Well the last few storms have not been kind to the fossil hunters of the Chesapeake Bay. The summer sand has really piled up over the past few weeks not to mention vibrio. I decided to venture out yesterday and I was luck enough to find it was calm and the water was clear enough that you could just barely see the bottom in knee deep water. Well I walked almost 3 miles in the water and i managed to sneak out one 2" meg dont know how many i walked over being unable to see but alas that is part of the game. I then met up with @VAfossilguy and got to show him the cliffs at Willows and found some nice stuff I always like showing people around if I can all in all it was a great day!
  12. Stratford Hall July 9th

    I spent a FANTASTIC day at the Stratford Hall cliffs yesterday courtesy of Mid Atlantic Fossil and Nature Trips. HUGE thanks to Cathy for organizing the outing as it was one of the best days I can remember having (collecting or otherwise!) Found a great many teeth during the 4 hours (particularly for a relative newcomer). Favorites of the day were the nice croc at top, a few of the more complete hemis, my first makos, and.... the VERY partial Meg at far left under the bottle cap. I saw the root sticking out of the sand, my heart skipped a beat, and then I discovered, much to my dismay, that almost the entire tooth was broken off. Oh well, I'll save the intact tooth for next time!!
  13. Our family of 3 attended the special event that was held at Stratford Hall yesterday. Dr. Weems was the guest speaker. This was our second year participating in the event. I liked it being in June instead of August this year. It was warm but not as hot as August. Tides were decent. Here is what the three of us managed to find. (Pretty good day) Can't wait for next year.
  14. So what else to do on a 70 degree day in Feb walk the beach of course. The water was high and the wind was whipping but i managed to scratch out a few nice teeth and the coloring on the mako is wild!!!
  15. snaggletooth shark

    This small (6mm long) Hemipristis is slightly pathological. Hemi patho's are not uncommon at Lee Creek.
  16. hemipristis symphyseal

    Self Collected at the Lee Creek Mine. This hemi lower symphyseal has great coloration.
  17. Summerville, South Carolina - Hemipristis serra

    Hello everyone ... I had the pleasure of going out on a guided tour so to speak of a creek near Summerville, SC and it was a hoot. A few cool things to be had but really the highlight of my day were these little colorful Hemi teeth. The best one was the pathological Hemi with a twisted root and malformed crown ? Thanks to Dennis and Shawn. Cheers, Brett
  18. Summerville Creek Hunts

    Otter creek field report 02-13-16: The day turned out to be a wonderful day to hunt South Carolina fossils. I met with one other at 1pm. We gathered our gear and headed out to find the elusive shark teeth and various other fossilized materials. We arrived at a deep cut creek site and began to survey. The first item that was very noticeable was very little evidence of other fossil hunters. What we found was blue marl, tan and brown marl, blue limestone, phosphate, and large stones (gravel of sort). Sanding-in was obvious in 90% of the creek. There were no teeth protruding from the dark gray sandstone walls. The large stones (golf ball to base ball size) had to be removed prior to gathering material and moving it through the sifter. The teeth that began to appear were small but grading upwards in size. I collected about 40 in all. The sizes ranged between .5” to 1.0”. The findings included Tigers, Hemi’s, Mako, Bull, Sand, Lemon, and Black Tip Sharks. Photos to follow.
  19. here are a few shots from a hunt today sifting in a creek in the south carolina low country...there were 4 forum members there as well as another
  20. Message me if interested in shark tooth hunting a Summerville creek next Tuesday at 11am. Will be searching for fossilized Tiger, Hemi, and Angustiden shark teeth.

  22. 3.3.13 Finds, Potomac River

    I was asked to post better images of the vertebrae found over the 3/3/13 weekend. Here are the teeth and verts found. Enjoyable weekend!
  23. Good evening! I've been going through and reasearching some of my summer trip finds this year and I am hoping for a little help! I am trying to figure out what the teeth in this picture are. This website has been incredibly helpful and has provided me with some think I knows but a few of them have me really stumped. They were all collected in Virginia and North Carolina. PLease feel free to correct my educated guesses. The larger teeth have smooth edges. The only one that has some seration is the small, wider one at the bottom-middle of the picture. If you need any close up picture I can certainly provide those as well. I thought the ones on the left were sand tigers but because of the shorter, wider root and "fatness" of the dentin I am considering otherwise. Plus they are not flat with the little upturn toward the end that I always distinguish with sand tigers. I have no clue what the ones with the dark greyish and brownish grey coloring are. (This would be the one closest to the 2" mark and his friends the left at 9 and 10 o'clock. Everyone's help is GREATLY appreciated!!! Thanks again and happy hunting!! Joyce
  24. Looking For Small Teeth

    I went to the Peace for the 5th time in the last 8 days. This time with friends who were really only looking for small shark teeth around 1/2 inch. We went to an area known for lots of small teeth and we all found many Bulls, Hemis, Lemons, and Tigers around that size. I found some gravel and was digging deep -- first I found some nice sized lower snaggles, then a couple of osteoderns (2 Armadillo and 1 Glyptodont), then the biggest , nicest Meg I have ever found, then a much smaller posterior meg, another lower snaggle, and a nice mako. After about 90 minutes, I could not dig deeper without drowning, and went back to find small shark teeth. I dug other nearby holes, but without a similar result. Good things happen when/where you least expect it. Traveling to Thanksgiving dinner in the morning, but wanted to share my joy!!!! Happy Thanksgiving to all -- enjoy your families and friends. SS I also found a fossilized toe bone -- added here to see if someone can ID..
