  1. Edit: Wrong use of photos. Will update shortly! Hello! I've been eyeing this tooth for some time now - but before buying I could need a bit of help! The price is very reasonable for a tooth at 11,3 cm and overall the condition is good - which makes me a bit suspicious The market for fossils in the country I live in is very niche, which might explain the price, but I would like to hear the opinion from folks that have more knowledge than I do. Cheers! Anne
  2. Exotic Megalodons!

    I've been acquiring Megalodon teeth from different localities over the past weeks. It's an ongoing project. I'm thrilled to share the first bit of my collection! I thank various members for sharing their knowledge of these localities with me. I would like to thank in particular @Praefectus for bouncing ideas, and for offering his thoughts on the legitimacy of almost every one of these; I also thank @gigantoraptor for generously gifting me the Dutch Meg!
  3. I have here a Meg from Florida. Does it look like it has any repairs or restorations done to it?
  4. Megalodon or Great White?

    This is advertised as a Megalodon, but it looks Great White to me. I'm not sure if the bourlette is in fact absent or simply worn off. It's almost 2 3/4", so it would be a formidable Great White if it is one. Location isn't mentioned
  5. This is an Indonesian Megalodon, 2.8" along the slant. The claim is that there's no restorations. I don't see any, and would appreciate more eyes on this. Thank you, Bellamy
  6. I have a question that, to an extent, is about this specific tooth. But it's also a general one. The seller claims this is a Peruvian Megalodon. How can that claim be verified? The colors seem to match up, but I've also seen similarly light-colored teeth from other localities. Is there anything else I can look for, or is it mostly the seller's reputation one has to go off? I'm interested in collecting Megalodon teeth from various exotic localities, so this is also a concern for Megs from Java, the Caribbean, New Caledonia, etc. Other than color, I know that teeth from New Caledonia teeth often contain damage from dredging, so I suppose that's another way to verify a claim for that locality. Thank you, Bellamy
  7. I'd like some opinions on one more Megalodon tooth, please. It's 5.8". This one I am suspicious of because it looks a lot more polished than most of the teeth I've seen that were found in the Atlantic Ocean. The claim is no restorations, in any event, so some more eyes would be great. Thank you, Bellamy
  8. Megalodon Tooth Locality Identification

    I have here a Megalodon tooth. The one who sold it to me mention it's from Florida. I'm interested to know the locality because I'd like to acquire Megalodon from every major site. This looks Bone Valley to me, based on the coloration. Could anyone confirm if that's enough to say so?
  9. Hi everyone, I have here a 5.6" Megalodon tooth. Before considering it further, I'd like to know if anyone can see repairs on it. The claim is that there are none. I don't see any, but I'm also not too experienced with recognizing them yet. The images aren't too large. Unfortunately, they're the best quality available. I'd appreciate more eyes on this in any case. Thank you, Bellamy
  10. Hi everyone, I have here a 5.64" Megalodon tooth that I purchased. I don't have any reason to believe it's fake, but I got a decent deal on it and just want to make sure it's genuine. It was found off the coast of North Carolina.
  11. Heres a fun thread for those to show off their widest and fattest looking megalodon teeth fossils in thier collections. I'll set the tone with the widest fat boy in my collection, I don't have digital calipers but it measure roughly 5.4 inches wide by 6.1 inches long. When I close my hand together it looks even more monstrous. Share yours and join the wide boyclub Got the idea while thinking about what the widest megalodon tooth ever found measures, if anyone does know do share in this thread!
  12. Hi, I am looking for a megalodon expert to help me see restorations on a tooth. I was told the tooth had minor restorations on the root and rear of the tooth. Can you tell be these pictures if that is correct and if there are other restorations done? Thank you for your time
  13. Hi everyone, For a long time, I've wanted to find a Megalodon tooth. I'm from Toronto, where they don't exist. However, I have a trip to the South coming up, where I understand there are some prime locations. It's a trip primarily for business, but I'll have one full day to spend on my Megalodon hunt. I would therefore ideally want to pick a single site. I did my research and my understanding now is that some of the beaches near Charleston, SC are prime. It would be helpful to get some first-hand accounts from you guys, though. The blue area is where I'm already planning to go. Suggestions for Megalodon sites in that range are preferable. The purple area is where I can extend my trip if the sites therein are meant to be particularly fruitful. I would appreciate any suggestions on the most promising Megalodon-hunting areas in this region. The only real barrier is that I won't have access to a boat, so anything offshore isn't doable. Thank you, Bellamy
  14. Hi everyone! I received this tooth when I was younger, and never thought much of verifying it until now. Could anyone help in telling me if this Megalodon tooth is real or a replica? Thank you!
  15. My 8 year old son has been saving his allowance for some time so he can get a nice Spinosaurus tooth. He will have about 350.00-400.00 saved up soon. I have read several things on repairs and fakes, but still do not have great confidence in what I am looking at. I have found a few sites that appear to be reputable, but I am concerned about spending this much money on a tooth still. I am wanting him to make a good investment and it sounds like Spinosaurus teeth are not all that rare but over 4" seems to be a more unusual tooth. In the 350.00-400.00 range what size tooth should we expect to get? Is there another fossil that would be a better purchase for him in this price range? He already has a 5" and 3.5" Megalodon tooth he bought by saving his money.
  16. Just bought my first Megalodon tooth, does it look restored? I would guess not. The seller says not restoration or repair has been done to it. 6.23 inch tooth! What you guys think?

    Hi, I am new to this website and hope the following is O.K. to ask. At a young age of 66 years, I have taken a special interest in researching, hunting, and collecting fossilized shark teeth. It gives me a feeling of wonder, amazement, and accomplishment when finding something nobody has possibly seen or touched in millions of years. I would imagine it is the same feeling people have when "panning" and finding gold. Here in Texas, I have visited the Post Oak Creek in Sherman and the North Sulphur River in Ladonia, Texas. So far, I have found a few small teeth but nothing to brag about. This year, my Wife and I are planning a mid to late May motorcycle trip visiting the Savannah, Georgia; Summerville/Charleston, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina areas. During this trip, I hope to search these areas' local beaches/creeks for some larger teeth with my "bucket list wish" to find at least one large Megalodon (in excess of 4 to 5 inches) tooth. I am not a deep sea diver. So, with the ever increasing popularity of shark teeth hunting, I do not know if it is still even possible to find a large Megalodon tooth in these areas. Since my vacation time will be limited, I have been doing some internet searching for prime areas to visit, their rules/regulations for hunting shark teeth, and the names of possible individuals/businesses, for a fee, will take you to these prime areas not heavily searched. In turn, with those of you who have visited or live in these areas, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Allen S. Forney, Texas (near Dallas)
  18. Added three new teeth in recent times to my collection of exotic meg teeth, I'd like to share since there,s not to many images from these localities out there, the photos maybe in shabby quality because I pulled them directly from my Instagram page to save time. 1) This partial tip of a meg was found in the Chiba prefecture of Japan! Acquiring this, even just a fragment was a real pain in the butt as megs from Japan are extremely scare. 2) Even though its not a Meg of course but still being the closest ancestor, this 3.1inch chubutensis tooth was found at a land site in Lecce, Italy with gorgeous color! 3) This tooth measuring 4.1 inches came from new site in Bangkalan City, Java, Indonesia. A majority of the megs here were found with absolutely terrible preservation so this one is one of the best out of the bunch! A few more pics of these teeth can be found on their posts on my page at https://www.instagram.com/nyislandfossils/ if its ok to post this here.
  19. Has anyone seen this before on a pathological megalodon tooth. I am thinking of buying this tooth from a friend and wanted to hear what the shark to professionals think. Sorry for quality of pictures, I'm waiting for better.
  20. 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?
  21. I recently saw a real or fake article about a giant whale vert with a big megalodon tooth sticking out of it, and although it was fake (due to the fact that neither was damaged and the force of a tooth that far embedded in the vert would have shattered or seriously damaged at least one of them) it inspired me. After an unsuccessful attempt to get a big whale vert, I decided to improvise. I had a chunk of a vert lying around, and lots of little megs with complete roots but blades broken off half way down the tooth. I decided to put them both to use, and with the aid of some paleobond fossil putty, here is how it turned out:
  22. Hi Everyone, I have become very interested in pathologic megalodon teeth recently. I was looking at teeth listed on auction sites, and came across one so called pathologic tooth that looks a lot like one i am currently restoring. My questions are, is the auction tooth actually pathologically deformed? And if so, is my tooth also pathologically deformed? The grey you see on the tooth is from where I began to do restorations to the root of the tooth. I did not reshape any of the blade, only restored enamel peel. Here are pictures of my tooth:
  23. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of megs for the US as requested, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on a budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. I estimate I spent no more than $1,100 in total for this small collection. Tag me if there's any teeth you'd like to take a closer look at. In order: 1) Ace Basin, Ashepoo River SC 2) Lee Creek, Aurora, NC 3) Ocean teeth likely from offshore SC 4) Georgia??? 5) 7 inch+ meg fragment likely from offshore SC 6) Virginia Red Site (repaired) 7) Georgia??? 8) Virginia 9) St. Mary's??? 10) Georgia??? (repaired) 11) Summerville 12) Ocean teeth likely from offshore SC 13) St. Mary's Last photo: 6inch+ Calvert Cliffs, Maryland (restored) I'll do bone valleys for part 3 sometime soon! @ynot @WhodamanHD @snolly50 @sixgill pete
  24. Hello everyone, I'd like to share my extreme budget collection of exotic megs/shark teeth so far, I've have been collecting shark teeth and other for a little over a year and a half now on an extremely tight budget and have been surprised by what I was able to get a hold of so far. Condition doesn't bother me hence the budget but I have been able to find some megs from from interesting locations over the short period of time I've been collecting with a little bit of luck. Locations include Puerto Rico, Cuba, Japan, Hawaii, Morocco, Mexico, Peru, and The Phillipines. Anyone else out there with extreme budget rare finds especially shark teeth (or from generally exotic locations), feel free to share and I'd love to see! In order of pictures: 1) Two megs and a hemi from Isabella, Puerto Rico 2) meg from Hawaii (Restored) 3) great white from Japan 4) meg from Morocco 5) meg from Cuba (unfortunately stuck on a wood plate but still a lovely display piece) 6) meg from the Phillipines 7) cubutensis from Peru 8) 2 Makos from Mexico 9 & 10) Heavily and horribly restored 5.9 inch Chilean meg (funny story with this one had an even worse restoration on it with made it look no different from a replica, was suspicious and bought it and when attempting a horrible derestoration process and a few slight touch ups of my own a large chilean meg was hiding under the mess, still needs a tad bit of work but I still love I was able to snag a large one cheap in this day and age ) @WhodamanHD Here we go uploaded !
  25. Hi Everyone, I have read lots of articles and blurbs from ebay sellers talking about how they find significantly less megalodon teeth than they used to and how the prices have skyrocketed. Do you guys think that this will continue, and that this would make megalodon teeth a good investment of money if I held onto my teeth and sold them say 10-20 years down the line? It should be noted that these are not complete teeth, but are 3/4 complete. I am struggling to decide whether to sell my teeth off now or not. Thanks, Matt
