  1. Matoaka Beach, 8/24/19

    Greetings Through this awesome site, I found out about Matoaka Beach Cabins and the opportunity to find fossils there. My family and I stayed here in the Spring to check it out and my son and I camped out over the weekend and spent some solid hours trying to find fossils at this gorgeous spot. We found a bunch of small teeth on the first afternoon by taking shovel fulls of sand and letting the surf wash and sift them, grabbing any teeth that washed out. The morning of the second day presented us with a fairly high tide and we were unable to walk very far up the beach but we found a few of our larger ones fairly close to the cabins. The water was clear enough that we saw a few nice teeth tumbling in the surf in a few inches of water. I was only fast enough to grab one, and I think it might be a small Meg. Can you guys weigh in? It's the upper left one in the group and also the close up shot. It has a small chip but was still pretty awesome to find, meg or not. I read and reread every post on here about the fossils of the Chesapeake and I want to thank you guys for the great community and resource. My son and I had a blast and we can't wait to get back to do it again. Thanks! Chris717
  2. Chubutensis or Angustiden

    So I have posted a picture of this tooth before but I was recently showing it to a buddy and he said it looked like a chub but the cusps make me think angustidens. I want to know what you all think. I found this in an area that the formation is exposed in spots. The clay is a thick white clay speckled with tiny pebbles and other fossils. my geological maps that i used to find the location say that it is of Miocene age in the hawthorn group. However I am starting to think that there might be older clays exposed in the area. Please help me figure out what kind of tooth I have here, thank you.
  3. I finally got to do some hunting in the Peace River area of bone valley and just want some help with identifying these teeth.
  4. A day in Summerville, SC

    First time fossil hunter, and we had a blast! If anyone needs a guide, or just advice, I HIGHLY recommend Barry Segura of Fossil Madness (his company). He was able to point us in the right direction, as well as hook us up with some great equipment. Thank you for everyone on TFF that encouraged and gave me advice!!!
  5. Good morning to all, I will be traveling to Seabrook, South Carolina on Saturday (6/15/19), and have been doing some research regarding potential sites to go shark tooth/fossil hunting. I have been fascinated with fossils and shark teeth my entire life, but never lived in a location to support this hobby. I've read that Summerville, Charleston, and Cooper River (maybe off-shooting creeks), are common spots, but I'd like to have a more calculated game plan than just stopping at random rivers/creeks LOL. After reading through several of the forums here, I understand that some basic advice would be to utilize google earth or maps, and attempt to locate "dredge spots" in rivers..? Would anyone be willing to help a newbie out with some research 101 type advice? Again, your craft absolutely AMAZES me!!! Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!!!
  6. Me and my wifes first trip to the meg ledge we pulled up 20 teeth! Between the 7 of us on the boat we pulled up over 100 teeth
  7. Fossil Fish Tooth Identification

    Small. A bit knackered, but not a tooth I have seen. Might just be a well worn sand tiger. Anyone have any guesses to what it bay be and age please ?
  8. Thoughts? Bite Marks?

    Possible predations? Thoughts?
  9. I took the time to take a couple pictures while out hunting this time so figured I would post up a report The day started off horrible- an hour late leaving my house (and it's a 2 hour drive to the river), colder than expected and somehow I forgot my lucky shovel. I allllllmost turned around and said the heck with it but stopped in Ace hardware, bought a new shovel and got on with it. I decided to launch at a new spot and explore a bit since the day wasn't starting off great and most of my good spots are still under too much water to dig. I had already decided that I probably wouldn't find much but it would be a good break from life to spend the day in nature on this river I love so much. Did I mention it was cold? Well, it was cold enough I didn't see a single person the entire day and probably counted 50+ dead Tilapia and Snook as they can't take water temps under 52 for long. I paddled for quite a while until I hit a creek that had fairly high walls and decided to paddle up it to see if there was gravel. It was mostly sand but I kept probing and a ways up there was an opening in the trees and all of the sudden I heard sweet crunchy goodness a few feet down. Gravel in one of the only sunny spots? I thought Maybe my luck was changing... I also forgot my small screen which would have been great in this creek so only had my large screen with me but I made the best of it and started moving sand. 30 min in, I start to see nice big gravel and then the treasures started coming up. One of my best if not The best day I've had for mammal fossils so far in my hunting career. The highlight came about an hour into digging- a baby mammoth tooth! I'm not sure how complete it is but I was blown away when it came up. I immediately stopped and took a picture: This was my best screen of the day- (granted there were many with nothing) Glyptodont, Sloth and Megaladon A nice golden Meg Associated Horse teeth The best of the day- Mastadon tusk end The best Megs of the day I filled up a gallon bag with other broken megs, unique turtle shell pieces, verts and other cool stuff. It seems the hurricane and record high levels did some fossil replenishment this year so I hope to report back with more trips soon! Dig deep and fossil on!
  10. I figured you guys would enjoy a few pictures of this Funky Pathological Meg I dug up in the Peace River a few weeks ago. It was a nice start to the season for sure!
  11. Diving for Megs

    Had a great dive! So many fossils out there. Although, next time I will spend time digging to hopefully find megs that are less damaged. One 6"
  12. Second Fossil Hunt in NC

    Yesterday I had a blast at my first organized fossil hunt in Maysville, NC. I am green on what is what but I tried to take good pictures. I found the following: -megaladon tooth -mako teeth -130 total shark teeth -partial horse tooth -puffer fish mouth plate -all kinds of bones -petrified wood -Ray teeth -ray barbs -sawfish teeth -whale tooth (?) -croc teeth -Shells, barnacles, coral -12 shark vertebrae Hopefully next time I will be able to upload images faster.
  13. I will be traveling to Florida 10/26 through 11/1 and planning to attempt to find my first meg. Any advice on charters that have been good or bad, gear rental, better from boat or shore, snorkeling options, etc are much appreciated. Thank for your help!
  14. Fossil Shark Tooth ID?

    I found this mini tooth in the Miocene Brownie Beach/Bay Front park. It has a large root with very small serrations on the edges of it. I was wondering if this is a posterior megalodon tooth. Would be cool if it was Thank you for replies in advance
  15. Hello all, New poster here. I am a bit new to collecting fossils, attempting to take advantage of all fossil collecting opportunities I come by. I found myself in raleigh, nc a couple days back and decided to check out some local collecting sites. I found green mill run in Greenville, nc. From what I understand the creek is good for finding megadalon teeth. Spent about 2 hours sifting through the gravel. Found a few small teeth, some bone, and what looks like a small skull. I'm hoping someone can help me identify.
  16. Calvert Cliffs, Md

    These are my recent finds from a March 2013 trip to Calvert Cliffs, MD. The image you see is of the Maryland state fossil, Ecphora. Didn't find an intact megaladon this time, but I'll go back out.
  17. Heading to Amelia Island (Fernandina Beach) Florida tomorrow. Just wondering if anyone had any last minutes tips to help maximize my finds. I have maps printed out of where the dredging spoils have been laid, so hoping to stay in that area. Searching primarily for Sharks Teeth or whatever else may lurk. I would be grateful for any info at all, Thank You!
  18. Is This A Reall Small Meg?

    I found this on the beach at venice Beach-Florida. The picture is a bit dark-but it has a nice red/black color. Looks like a small meg. What do you think?
