  1. megalodon

    This is a small ?posterior meg tooth. Found in spoil piles from the Lee Creek Mine.
  2. megalodon symphyseal

    A very rare and nice, small megalodon symphyseal tooth. A tooth position that was not in all megs.
  3. I was wondering if anyone could help me with these Meg teeth. The black one was sold to me as a juvenile tooth. My question is how can you tell if it's from a juvenile or if it's from a grown Meg but just located in the corner of the jaw where the teeth are smaller. Same question with the lighter colored one. That one was sold to me as just a Meg tooth but I was wondering if there is a way to tell if it's from a juvenile. Thanks for any help
  4. 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.
  5. Hey everyone, Here's some of the better teeth from my recent fossil-hunting visit to Hogtown Creek in Gainesville. I believe the top left tooth is a Mako (unfortunately it's broken). I'm also guessing the top right is a small Meg tooth -- maybe a posterior one? Both of these were found in a very clay-like sediment and I am having some difficulty getting them cleaned. I tried vinegar and water, but the colors just aren't coming through. Any ideas? Anyone interested in meeting up at a Gainesville creek sometime in January? I'm open any weekend except the weekend of the 21st.
  6. Had the opportunity to hit the cliffs New Year's Day. Was fortunate enough to find this little beauty and several other nice teeth as well. After my last trip, where I lost a majority of my teeth due to a faulty lid on a container, it looks as though I was rewarded today. Found a lot of teeth. Great day today. Darctooth Dave, I was thinking about you today buddy!
  7. I usually don't go for impulse buys, but I saw these cute little megs from 2 different sellers and figured $20 each wasn't bad. Each one measures just over 3" (7.8cm) on their longest sides. I believe the darker one may be a Chubutensis but both were listed as Megalodon (of course!) I am the exact opposite of a shark tooth expert, I wouldn't know what it was if it bit me. But I am putting together a display for World Oceans day in the spring and figured this was a GREAT chance to expand my knowledge. Sorry for the dog hair, I need to vacuum..... Don't judge! Thanks as always, -Blake
  8. 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.
  9. It took until the last day of the year but I finally found my first Megalodon tooth! It is a small, very worn one with root damage but I'm still pumped about finding it! My wife found her first vertebrae as well as her first fragalodon. I've had a blast since I took this hobby up in July, can't wait to see what the new year brings! A thank you goes out to everyone here who has been so generous in sharing your knowledge, it more appreciated than you will ever know! I hope you all have a great new year! The total haul: The biggest vert: My little, worn Meg and the nicest Snaggletooth I have ever found: My wife's frag:
  10. Couldn't bear to shop, but I was close to Fredericksburg, so I headed down Rt 3 to WSP for a casual hunt. The park was pretty deserted- just myself and a young couple on the beach. The water was calm and visibility good, so I began the bent over slow walk we know so well.. Before long, small chocolate brown Mako, then a larger bluish one, and a Snow White snaggletooth had me composing a trip report based on the pretty colors. One last pass before heading home and suddenly ahead of me in about a foot of water, a dark triangle. And this time it was what it looked like! 3.5 on the slant and in pretty good shape. This is my first so I'm feeling blessed.
  11. I FINALLY found one heck of a Meg!! I wrote in great detail on my blog, so for those who just want photos without a good long story, you can get that here. If you want the full detailed scoop of my day, check out my post : and a lovely great white! 2.75 inches! I personally would like to thank the following people for making this moment possible! 1. Rick - mostly thankful for you not hitting me in the head with a shovel and running off with it... lol and to have someone there so I didn't seem like a psycho talking to myself with such excitement in the creek alone. 2. City of Greenville for contracting people to remove some trees/debris at GMR 3. Kirk, for in his post he said: " No, I left it there for someone else to find. Already have several in my collection " - takes a real good man to leave that behind - humble you are, good sir!
  12. Sunday, 12/18/2016, will be a day documented with great detail in my personal memory bank. As you read this, keep in mind, I am one of those people who remain in constant awe of the world around me; curiously exploring every little detail, often finding excitement in the things most would consider average or common. Every Trip I’ve made to Greens Mill Run these past three years has been one of such joy, excitement and inspiration – regardless of what treasures (and junk) I had found or imagined to find. 12/18/16 9:15 AM – I arrive to my usual parking spot, which I frequent most weekends and week day evenings through the spring summer months that the sun lasts long enough to get a few screens in after getting off work at 5pm. I am seriously addicted and will never be ashamed to admit it! ( of course, I miss the occasional weekend to go on fossil trips with groups in other places OR because of lil pesky hurricanes, like Matthew, flooding me out). Rain, cold, heat nor physical discomfort can keep me from going at least one day out of a weekend to get my dig on, and most of all – to find my peace of mind within the tiny spot of nature found near the heart of a small city. I meet up with my favorite digging friend, Rick – who was in shock of the damage the city did along GMR to clear out the fallen trees within the creek. They had been clearing a wide road to fit a back hoe an extensive distance deep into the woods, just beside the stream, to remove the multitude of fallen trees left behind by Matthew. While they may have destroyed the beauty and protection of the banks – I do owe them some thanks for breaking up a couple banks in the process, releasing treasures! We poked around and walked up stream slowly, heading towards I place we both wanted to hit up, a spot I didn’t have time to get into last weekend. I knew there were still things to be found - I had spent about 20 hours total there two weekends ago and still kept finding stuff. Within the week days since the weekend prior, they removed the fallen tree I wanted to dig by, pulling it up out of the stream. As I walked up, looking over the damaged bank and released potential, I look to my right (at 10:00 am) and cannot post here the exact words that came out of my mouth – but I will elude to it .. “Holy…” and Rick, right behind me, immediately sees what I’m looking at, exclaiming “I .... hate you” jokingly. I wouldn’t have believed it and neither would he had one of us came upon this discovery alone. Laying there in the clear water, glistening in the sun as it rested on hardened clay, was my very first complete, serrated and large Megladon tooth. She is a true beauty. We snapped photos in the water, where she lay, and then in hand – texting them to a couple people, bragging etc – it being quite "the find". It only took about 3 years of consistent trips to finally find my very own GMR meg in remarkable condition of such size!! I kept digging. I found an AMAZING great white two hours later and a few smaller GW, Mako, Crow, tiger etc that are common for GMR (but still exciting to me each and every time I see one in my screen!). Leaving around 2 pm, the love story of Mr. Ash and his first remarkable Meg followed. We went home, I had a shower and my Meg had a bubble bath (I’m mildly OCD and have to disinfect everything I bring home). Then, we went out for dinner, my Meg and I (oh and the GF) to celebrate! I wanted steak – we went to Ribeyes (AMAZING STEAK FYI). I got us a salad, but Meg said she doesn’t eat rabbit food and would wait for the main course. Meg was a bit testy with the cook when they informed her that they do not serve Whale, but we settled on a nice medium ribeye. Julie, my lovely lady with such kind heart-ed tolerance for my fossil obsession, drove us into the sunset, my meg and I – hand in..tooth…holding it..erm – to get a milk shake from Arbys. We ordered some chocolate shake goodness and we headed home! True love. (my GF getting slightly jealous at this point as I never share my shakes with her) And finally, after such a long exciting day – we got tucked in for a good night’s rest before meeting all of my coworkers the following morning. Any fossil lover can relate to the pure excitement and euphoria of their first meg find. I hope you can appreciate the visual representation of what loving a Meg, found after searching for so long, would be like J
  13. Meg

    The first large meg and the best condition to date that I have from Greens Mill Run in Greenville North Carolina.
  14. Hello all! I was recently given a 4 inch Meg tooth by my friend who found it around the TN/NC border. I have always wanted to be a paleontologist, and was wondering if there were any sites in TN i could check out for finding fossils of all kinds? I currently live in Montgomery County on the KY border.
  15. juvenile meg

    Self Collected from spoil piles from the Lee Creek Mine.

  18. 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

  20. 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.
  21. It was a beautiful day today. Decided to spend it the right way and do some fossil collecting. Came out with my best Megalodon from the cliffs ever!
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. Just a few of my finds from 2015 at Westmoreland SP along the Potomac river. This is my fist time posting and my finds include Megs, makos, a couple gator teeth and a complete Ray plate. I hope you enjoy. More pictures upon request.
  25. Megatooth Shark Comparison

    From the album TEETH & JAWS

    Occasionally, teeth of the two sharks, Carcharocles megalodon and Carcharodon carcharias, may be confused for one another. Ususally, this is a problem with a worn or otherwise damaged tooth . . . especially where the teeth of the two sharks may be found together, as in Florida's Peace River (C. carcharias teeth are uncommon in the Peace River). Megalodon and the great white shark now are generally believed to be not closely related.
