  1. So dry season is making slough hunting possible again. These were 12-24" down in a now dry creek bed all within about 4 linear feet of each other. And I happily complied with the rules of fossil hunting and broke the big one trying to get it out.
  2. FL River Hunting Feb 22 2018

    Got in a few hours of digging today and popped a few keepers out. One day I'm going to find a nice complete Meg that size.
  3. Serious Serrations

    Just thought I'd share some cool pictures I took with my macro lens, getting up close and personal with the knife-like serrations of a few teeth that I've found on my trips. Enjoy!
  4. Here are 3 pristine Hemipristis serra I collected from Brownies Beach over this past weekend. If only the lower tooth didnt have enamel peel! The biggest tooth measures 1 3/8" and was found rolling in the surf. I like the colors these teeth have from the sediment they were in.
  5. Hemi placement?

    I found this very tiny hemi a while back (Brownies beach). I was wondering if anyone could tell me the placement? This is the whole tooth (but it’s rootless) not the top of it. Thanks.
  6. Hello everyone, I've had an idea for a while now to write and illustrate a guide on the fossil shark species of SC and how to find their remains. I really am not sure where I would like to begin, but my brainstorming process apparently involves a certain amount of doodling. These pages represent studies for how I might like certain parts of the guide to look, though all text will be typed in the final product. I am looking for any feedback - critique of the artwork, topics you'd like to see covered, additional information, etc., etc. enjoy! Here's a page that started for a mock-up for the specific species Hemipristis serra. I also drew a representation of Isurus desori on the bottom... A page dedicated to Carcharocles/Otodus megalodon (as I imagine him) And a portion of a simple tooth guide (not really sure how to incorporate this yet) - And thats most of what I've got so far. What do ya'll think?

  10. My Best Megalodon so far!

    So my daughter decided she wanted to go look for shark teeth yesterday. I went to a nearby spot that we to this point had found very little, to my surprise we found some of the best color teeth I have personally ever seen. Any suggestions on how to clean the root?
  11. Medial Phalanx

    5 years back, I found a small bone from a jaguar that increased my respect for small bones and started me down the identification process. It has a spot for claw retraction and overall a medial phalanx can be IDed as such. Fast forward to yesterday. I have been visiting the Peace River and connecting creeks, trying to find places to hunt without much success. DEEP, FAST, FULL of gators. But I am persistent and found access and even a few fossils: an Equus earbone, a nice hemi upper tooth and an unknown toe bone plus a smattering of other shark and Ray teeth. Now I can recognize a Medial Phalanx although it is only 1/2 the size of the Jaguar. I realize that it is Harry, Nate, and those other Florida toe bone hunters who find this interesting. But it does give me an opportunity to show off this: Small but almost perfect out of the clay layer... My 2017-2018 Season has STARTED!!!!.
  12. So since I went out on the bay yesterday i figured i'd press my luck and go out on the river today. Well check out the pathological hemi I scooped up.I know its hard to do it justice in pictures but check out the twists and curves on that bad boy. Plus just for @Fossil-Hound the rest of todays river finds lol.
  13. My shark tooth collection

    Hi Everyone, I just wanted to share my collection and also ask for some advice. I am looking for a good way to display my nicest makos, hemis and great whites on the top shelf. I am planning to display my megs as pictured in one of the below photos. Please comment any ideas you may have for me on how to display them. I restored a lot of the teeth in my collection. I am 16 so I have a very limited budget and could never afford all of these things if they were the real thing. That being said, here it is: colorful partial teeth small meg in matrix megalodon teeth on their shelf biggest is 6.62"
  14. Found this little Hemipristis tooth. Looks like a possible symphseal. Is complete except for a small ding on one side. Has very small ridges on outer side and couple larger points on inside. Very strange looking tooth.
  15. The Summerville slide .....

    Hello everyone, I've had an opportunity .. since school has ended, and ok in full disclosure I was there a few weeks before we let out, to hit the creeks and do a little sifting. Found some verts including a decent sized whale vert not shown here. Plenty of teeth with color and some 3" fraglodons and what-a-shame-rs. Weather has been mild for this time of year. So besides the quart of blood loss due to the hordes of mosquitos it has been a fun start to the break. Enjoy ! The largest Hemi in my collection .. a black beauty weighing in at 1.25". Some tiger teeth are always on offer .. the color has been getting more varied. A few Angustidens .. this is the best of the three missing one side cusp each .. *sigh*
  16. Hi Everyone, I have been collecting fossil teeth for a couple of months and I have noticed that all of the hemipristis teeth I have collected have complete and sharp serrations on them. However, the teeth of other species that I collect, such as megalodons, do not tend to have complete and sharp serrations. Does anyone know why hemi teeth tend to keep all of their serrations despite the millions of years of wear and tear?
  17. Hemipristis serra (Agassiz 1840)

    From the album Pisces

    17mm. Snaggletooth Weasel Shark upper. From the Miocene at Calvert Cliffs, MD. Recieved on a trade with Fossil Hound.
  18. Hemipristis serra ( Agassiz 1840)

    From the album Pisces

    The large one is 23mm. Snaggletooth lower. I'm not certain about the id on the smaller one. From the Miocene at Calvert Cliffs, MD. Recieved on a trade with Fossil Hound.
  19. Edisto Beach State Park

    Went to Edisto Beach State Park in South Carolina today for two hours. It was very nice, although the wind was quite cold. I found five sting ray mouth plates and 45 shark teeth. This is the most I've found in that amount of time at any beach I've gone to. There weren't many people there (because it's April) so I didn't have to walk for a while to get to a clear spot. Only walked about a half a mile down from the first beach access point and then back.

  21. Mako

    I was out today. I have decided to occasionally show photos of the Peace River just to let TFF members know what it looks like and why I love it. I was at this location today and I found a trifecta: Meg, Hemi, and Mako all at 1.5 inches in length. Great day but I am mostly interested in the Mako, because its shape is unusual for my previous Peace River Mako finds. Is this a Isurus Hastalis and if so, which tooth position? Here are a couple of Peace River Makos from previous trips for comparisons: Thanks, Jack
  22. After work last friday drove out to South Florida for a few hours of daylight to dig. But well worth it. 'Early on' found the most beautiful hemi lower, multicolored with intact tiny cusps on the side, my first. Had a gut feeling there had to be other good fossils nearby and wasn't wrong. Even found another stunning hemi eventually. Also a decent 'mako'/hastalis, couple horse teeth, big jaw section, my first quality tapir tooth, etc.. South Florida provides with hard work & many parts of luck. Overall my best fossil hunt of the year yet. I'm not sure what the skinny rib-like fossil is but I suspect fish? Only my 2nd pufferfish mouth plate, & usually I don't alter fossils too much, but there's enough solidified dirt if anyone has any tips for how I can clean it off without damaging the fossil I would deeply appreciate it. (P.S. No pics on the creek because my dry pak doesn't fit my current car key and my phone. I'll figure out something though)
  23. Found a new HotSpot

    Got back to the coast of Ga/Fla again for our annual fall trip to Amelia Island for the Ga/Fla football game. As a UGA grad, we shant discuss the game. But we can talk about some fossil finding. A friend of mine that knew I'd gotten into shark tooth hunting put me in touch with one of her work colleagues that told me of a place a short boat ride from Amelia island that usually had good teeth. Wanting to check it out I chartered a boat ride. What resulted was the best shark tooth hunting of my life on what I believe is an old drege spoil spot. Two steps off the boat I found a perfect 2 inch great white. (of course I later dropped it showing it to my kids and broke it on condo floor). For 150 minutes I averaged 3 teeth a minute. If I walked 3 steps and didn't find one I was shocked. It was an amazing trip. Found many larger teeth which for me are in the nickel to quarter size. Much larger average than my usual beach hunting. Go two of the best intact hemi's I've ever found. Added another 250 or so I found on the beach of Amelia for a total of 716 for the trip. Puts me over 2100 for the calendar year. I can't give the location of the new honey hole. Was promised to secrecy. But should you decide to hunt on Amelia Island your best bet is to go up to the north end near Fort Clinch and park at the fishing pier. Much larger teeth up that way than on the south end of the island where we usually stay. Up there I found plenty of other fossils including turtle shell, puffer fish mouth plates, ray plates, ray stingers, fish verts, etc. Averaged 25 teeth an hour up on that northern end. Won't get to hunt again till early January when I'll make a quick mid day run to Savannah Ga coastline while on a deer hunting trip in SE Ga.
  24. Hemipristis Help

    I got this tooth a few years ago at a local fossil store, and I was wondering if anyone could give me guidance as to whether it is a H. serra or H. curvatus tooth. The serrations on the mesial side are extremely weak compared to those of some of my H. serra teeth, but they are still there. HEM.bmp
