  1. Coprolite? Jacksonville, Florida

    Found this along with dozens of other fossils while hunting in Jacksonville. Hard as a rock and has that indistinguishable feces look. Let me know what you guys think!
  2. River Diving Northeast FL

    Hi everyone, I recently moved up to Fernandina Beach this fall. I've been having decent luck finding fossils along spoil piles on islands and beaches. But as an avid diver, I'd like to take it underwater this spring/summer. The only fossil diving I've done so far is out of Venice and some snorkeling in the rivers in Central Florida. I know that the current is ripping through the St. Mary's and St. John's and it is a blackwater dive, but I've heard of people diving them for meg teeth. I've got my boat and all my dive gear here waiting for the water temp to warm up. This is shaping up to be a mild winter so that may not be too long from now. Can anyone give tips on what to look for along the river? Should I be watching my depth finder for drop offs? Any tips for once I'm in the water to find the fossil beds? I don't expect anyone to give up their spots but a little guidance would be greatly appreciated. I know the hunt is half the fun. Also, if anyone is looking for a dive partner, let me know! Happy hunting, Anthony
  3. Beach Finds around Jacksonville

    Hey everyone, First post on here. Tried to take some clear photos of a couple finds from today that I'm not certain of. Ruler is in inches. Looks like I may have to make additional comments to include other photos...
  4. Fossilized Horse Tooth?

    hopefully the pics upload having some troubles. I believe I found a horse tooth, but I would like some confirmation. Thanks for your help.
  5. Found in October 2016 after Hurricane, mickler beach, jacksonville fl. 3/4"x3/4". Anymore detailed info?
  6. Any idea who this partial jaw bone belongs to?
  7. Tooth?

    I found this item at Onslow Beach in Jacksonville, NC however it wasn’t on the beach. It was found along the roadway approaching the ICW bridge located right before entering the beach strand. It has the shape of a tooth but that might be wishful thinking. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
  8. Hey guys! Any streams, creeks, or other locations you know of where I could hunt fossils in Jacksonville other than the beaches? Also is it possible to find Megalodon here?
  9. Find these guys all the time, yet I have no Idea who they belong to and what the are.
  10. I am more than certain this is ivory, but I always like sharing. What do you guys think? The schreger lines seem worn from the waves. I believe this is partial cementum and mainly dentine.
  11. This bone appears to be stretching? I believe it's turtle, but help is always appreciated.
  12. Dermal denticle? Florida

    I found these bad boys everywhere on the beach, but who do they belong to?
  13. Crab claw? Florida

  14. Jacksonville FL Shark tooth

    Its pretty small-thought it was a bull or dusky or something similar, but I found lots of bull etc teeth today and it doesn't look like any of them. The angles aren't as steep as the bulls or whatever. The tip is missing but it appears to only be missing the tip and some root. Thanks for your help everyone!
  15. 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).
  16. Fish Scales? Plus Shark Tooth

    Apologize for the poor quality pics but I struggled photographing these to show any detail I suspect they are fish scales but that is basically just a guess If anyone wants to take a shot at IDing them go for it The first two pictures are of the same fossil and the third picture is a different one-the second specimen was very difficult to photo cuz its basically a round disk with a raised hump in the middle Lastly if anyone could tell me what type of tooth this is that would be awesome so far its my most complete 'big' (meaning bigger than a fingernail lol) tooth
  17. Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and new to collecting shark teeth. I moved to Jacksonville in 2016 for school and have mainly spent my time fishing and learning the fishing spots. However, since I study sharks and heard about Jacksonville having some good beaches for collecting shark teeth, I figured I would give it a go. I started collecting about two weeks ago and have already found about 25+ teeth. I have been finding mainly sand tiger or extremely small teeth from lemons or hammerheads or bulls. The small teeth are much harder to ID even with my knowledge of all the extant coastal sharks I have. Anyways, as anyone new to anything I want to keep progressing and finding new and better fossils. Also, like everyone looking for shark teeth I want to find a megalodon tooth. I have been online nearly every day trying to research where to go and when to go and so far the best teeth I have found is an almost complete tiger and a half of a white tooth(I believe but not totally sure cuz its split right down the middle). Any tips or tricks into finding bigger and more complete teeth would be greatly appreciated!!! My main question for anyone in the area reading this would be do you have to dig for Meg teeth or can you find them on the surface? I have a kayak and I went out today to Quarantine Island? off Dames Point and all I found was a tiny maybe bull? and another sand tiger. From reading posts on the forum there are clearly megs in and around Jax, but I honestly have no clue where to start looking and I feel like a chicken with my head cut off looking for these things. So far I have seen the recurring theme is to go to the dredge spoil islands which is where I went today and was a near bust. I know I'm very new and probably expecting too much out of just starting out, but I would feel a lot better if I read some recent reports of finding megs in Jacksonville. Everything on this forum for Jax seems like it was written years ago. Sorry to go on and on and thanks for anyone that can help!
  18. I had a few people look at it (including the head of collections at the Nat. History museum in Gainesville) and we were all stumped! Any ideas?
