  1. Hi everyone, One of my friend just found this tooth in Brownie Beach (Calvert Cliff, MD). It looks like a worn Mako but it has serrations, so I am toward a Meg tooth. Any other suggestions? Thanks
  2. I got to hit Flag Ponds for a few hours this afternoon. It was blustery and 33°, but turned out to be a pretty good day. These are the best from today.
  3. I picked up this small but well preserved mako tooth from the auction site yesterday. It caught my eye because of the small cusp-like features and what appear to be (very) rudimentary serration like waves along the edge by the cusps. It is from Chile, so the location would be right for a transitional tooth. When it arrives I'll post some shots under the microscope. I'd like to hear others thoughts on this tooth. The truth is, for $15, I don't mind if it is a transitional tooth or not, but serrations had to start somewhere edit: I added some zoomed in photos from the original auction, this site seemed to have stripped some of the detail out after publishing.
  4. What a day! We were both kind of bummed that we couldn't go out yesterday in the beautiful weather since we had to pick up the girls from their grandmother, but we did pick up my wife some hip boots to make it easier to search for teeth (she is styling in them too). We woke up today to light rain and dreary conditions...after debating it for a few minutes we decided to go anyway. In the back of my mind I was thinking that this trip was going to be a bust, with the good weather the day before I was sure that the place was picked over...glad I was wrong! The beautiful thing about the river is that it is always changing, and the rain and wind today produces just enough chop to keep the sand stirred up, and the river revealed its treasures to us! Within a few minutes of hitting the beach, we both found mako teeth that were high and dry...great way to start! The water's edge was constantly spitting out really nice teeth as we went back and forth; I couldn't believe it when one wave came up over a gravel bed and when it receded a Meg was laying there! My second Meg in two trips! Unbelievable! It will be hard to top this trip this year...but we will try! Total haul: My second Meg! (Now to find a big one...I know, I'm getting greedy! ) Biggest Mako. Another nice Mako I found just before leaving.
  5. This shark tooth was found deep in a cave on an island which is off the Panamanian coast (Atlantic side). It appears to be a fossilized mako shark tooth; however, I haven't been able to identify the exact Isurus species. It doesn't appear to be either of the currently living mako shark species, Isurus Oxyrinchus or Isurus Paucus. That leaves eleven other extinct species. Any help would be very appreciated!
  6. I recently bought a hooked mako and I just want to know if it is a type of pathologicity. It kinda confuses me, can anyone answer this question?
  7. Is this a Mako tooth? It was found in the Peace River (Florida) in the same spot as some megalodon teeth, but this one looks different. Thanks!

    This is what I believe to be a Mako shark tooth. These aren't as common at the Calvert Cliffs area as tiger shark teeth and this is one of the nicer specimens I have recovered.
  9. Getting back in the swing of things after a very hot summer in which i did little to no collecting. Headed down to Westmoreland for the day, hoping something good would be laying there. It was a beautiful day with minimal wind but the tide wasn't all that low due to recent rain, but water was clear and calm enough. Found a nice little mako that i was able to get a picture of before i picked it up. Also found a big chunk of bone that still had some matrix still on it, not sure what it is or what its from, if anyone knows anything feel free to chime in. On the way home I stopped at George Washington's Birth place to just walk around as i usually do. Thats when i came across these signs, it seems like theres been a problem with bull sharks recently. If anyone has a knowledge about that id love to hear it. There wasn't anyone down there at the time for me to ask. Enjoy! Boneheadz
  10. I went to the Ernst quarries at shark tooth hill last weekend and had a great time collecting teeth. I'm new to the area and hadn't collected there before, but I met a couple there who were very experienced and helped me identify a lot of what we found. I've attached a picture of what the landscape looked like as we were getting ready to leave. Really a beautiful area, in a desolate sort of way.
  11. Ok, I found this tooth in the Lee Creek mine in 2007. Over the years I have gone back and forth as to the species of mako; hastalis, oxyrhincus, desori. So now I am asking for your opinion. I don't think I have posted this tooth on here before so I hope you all enjoy, I think it's a beauty. I would like to post this one on the collections area, but I want to be much more sure about a positive species before I do so. It is just ovewr 2" ( about 2 1/8) and has great color.

    Beautiful Matrix I found along the James River one day! My favorite still! Perfect condition.. Still need help identifying the exact type of shark, or Era...?!
  17. Headed out to do a little hunting and it was a gorgeous day out today. I got down to the water and immediately headed to my favorite spot. The water was high today, which seems to be coming a common theme. I haven't done a good amount of digging and sifting in ages, so i decided to put some work in. After about a half an hour of digging and finding some small teeth here and there, I came across a whale ear bone! It's the first one I've ever found so i was pretty excited. I kept digging and the only other find worth mentioning is a little beat up mako with a tip ding. I decided to take a break and walk the beach as the tide had dropped since first getting there. I was almost back to my sifting spot when i bent down to pick a little black mako that was laying on top in about 6 inches of water. Sitting right next to the mako was this little Meg. Its a little beat up but its still nice to find a Meg (keeps the spirit up). If anyone else hunts Westmoreland frequently let me know.I hope you enjoy the pics! Boneheadz
  18. Headed out last Sunday to Bayfront Park. I got down there before the sun even came up and there were still people down there. I don't think its possible to go without running into some one down there. The water was really high and cloudy from all the rain we've had, so pickings were slim. I did manage to find a mako sticking out of some fallen formation out of the cliffs. The tooth is in great shape but the gums are a little beat up. What i really like about this mako is it really shows some wicked feeding damage from where the shark bit its own tooth. I wonder what it could be eating. I hope you enjoy. If you frequent Bayfront park hit me up I'd love to have someone to go with sometimes. Boneheadz
  19. Set out for a two day expedition with my girlfriend down to Westmoreland SP to see what we could find. The first day was ok, finding a lot of broken teeth and some bone. The second day we cleaned house and my girlfriend found her first Meg. This excites me because hopefully this will keep her motivated to come fossil hunting with me haha. She really had a great day finding a couple beautiful makos, a meg, and a sweet upper sevengill tooth. If anyone could help me identify this chunk of bone that'd be great. Hope you enjoy the pics!

  20. I had an opportunity to go down to Westmoreland twice this week because I was lucky enough to have off work. The first day I took my GF with me because she had off as well. The first day was pretty nice and sunny, the wind wasn't a factor that day so it was perfect for hunting in the water. Being down there only a short time I found one of the most beat up shamer megs I've ever found. Im not sure how it could've gotten this bad, but atleast it was a good sign. We found a few teeth that day including a decent little Snaggletooth. On the second day i went down by myself and found that the wind had picked up significantly from the previous day. I was limited to whatever was laying on the beach. Luckily, I was able to find a couple teeth including a beat up Mako and a nice upper snaggletooth. Here are some pics for you to enjoy. If anyone has any theories to what happened to this meg, I'd love to hear them. The inside of it is mushy and pretty much broke apart in my hand. Thanks, Boneheadz
  21. Hey, i often hunt fossils in Virginia and Maryland and am primarily looking for shark teeth and other marine fossils. I frequent Westmoreland SP and Purse SP. Ive been hunting alone a lot lately and although I'm getting used to it now, I'd still feel more comfortable and enjoy it more if i had someone to go with. I mainly go during the week because less people are down there hunting. If anyone would be like to meet up, send me a message. Thanks, Boneheadz
