  1. Tiny Meg or wishful thinking?

    Hi everyone, I was going through some tiny teeth from a recent trip to Ernst quarries (Bakersfield; round mountain silt; ~ 15 mya) and came across this intriguing little tooth. It is ~11 mm and serrated on both sides. Is this a tiny meg or just wishful thinking?
  2. Hello! I'm a pretty new collector, and I'm currently looking to purchase a Megalodon tooth for myself. They've been a dream of mine to have for a long time now, so I'm happy I might finally have a chance! I took a glance at a few websites, and found this. Is it real? Is it fake? (And, whichever it is how can you tell?)
  3. The teeth in the photos are what I’m looking to trade. Interested in all sorts of fossils and willing to entertain trades abroad as well.
  4. Carcharocles megalodon (Joe Cōcke collection)

    From the album Elasmobranchs

    I do not own this rare tooth. It is from the collection of paleontologist Joe Cōcke, which he found locally and gladly allowed me to photograph.
  5. Florida creek hunt

    Had a pretty decent haul today.
  6. Low waters in FL

    I haven't done much fossil hunting in the past couple months due to doing so much caving. I made it out yesterday to find lovely low water. I found some good stuff but the highlight was a colorful meg
  7. Megalodon Tooth Shape

    I just purchased a Megalodon tooth I saw for sale and wanted some opinions on it. The tooth was found near Savanna Georgia and measures just under 6” on the diagonal (sorry for not having the exact measurements, I’m on a business trip right now). I was told there is no restoration to it. This tooth stood out to me because of its shape. It seems more narrow compared to what I’m used to seeing. Is this a pathology or simply indicative of a certain position in the jaw or is this not a megalodon tooth? I’d appreciate any information anyone could give as this is not my area of expertise.
  8. Venice scuba finds

    Did some diving off Venice, FL over the summer before the red tide got too bad. I got a lot of small teeth but a good number of megs and other fossils. My biggest tooth, a little over 4.5 inches: A nice golden beach tooth: A whale tooth:
  9. I have this beautiful colored Caribbean Megalodon tooth , the blade and serrations are nearly perfect, but it has bourlette, and root damage. Not sure if I should have the tooth restored, or leave it natural. I even thought about making a pendant out of it. I would love to hear some of the members opinions. Tooth is 3.75” as is.
  10. Megalodon, Miocene, the thoot is glued on matrix. available
  11. Hello TFF members! I just put together a compilation video of finding shark teeth on roads here in Florida over this past summer. If you've been watching my other vids, you may have seen some of this already. Many miles were walked, much sweat was shed and lots of teeth were found. We got large megalodon teeth, a killer Parotodus (maybe the best shark tooth I have ever found), great whites and makos and a bunch of other cool stuff. Check it out if you get time and like watching fossil hunting vids: Here's some pics if you don't want to watch a vid: Great white shark tooth in matrix Juvenile megalodon. Megalodon tooth spotted from a moving vehicle on the road. Killer little great white...had to do a coin toss for this one since we spotted it at the exact same time. And my baby, a killer Parotodus that I also spotted from a moving vehicle.
  12. Hey folks! @Cris and myself grabbed the canoe recently and set out on yet another exciting fossil hunting voyage! We went to a slightly flooded, very remote creek in the middle of the swamp. Confidence in finding tons of fossils were not high, but to our surprise we were rewarded with literally hundreds of sharks teeth! Nothing of major size, but the sheer number of fossils was just as exciting for us. Can't wait to go back! We were also able to collect some micro matrix which is loaded with tiny shark teeth and other fossils. I'll definitely be posting stuff from that when I look through what I collected!
  13. Shark teeth

    I’m pretty sure the white tooth is a fossilized mako and I think the dark is a juvenile Megalodon or great white. Pretty sure it’s a meg what do you guys think?
  14. Hey guys I just got this and when I first looked at the photos I thought it was real. So I bought it but now that I see it in person seems doctored or fake maybe???? What do you guys think real or fake?
  15. Hello TFF members, I got out for a very, very hot fossil hunting trip the other day and a managed to find a few small megalodon shark teeth, snaggletooth teeth, a three-toed horse tooth and bone and a bunch of other cool stuff. The only way I could bare the heat was to dip my shirt into the water and put it against my back in between every single screen. And if you don't want to watch the vid and/or can't see the thumbnail, here's a closeup of some of the highlights from the hunt: -Cris
  16. Is it a megalodon?

    Hey hi Y'all,'I found this while re-searching through My collection of teeth from Sharktooth hill. Is it a megalodon?
  17. Megalodon teeth

    From the album Sharks and fish

    Megalodon tooth and tooth fragments.
  18. Creekin' for Shark Teeth!

    @Cris and myself went on another brutally hot fossil hunt to the creek yesterday. We went for just a few hours, and were very pleased with the results! We found a couple roughed up Megalodon teeth, some very nice Mako's, a big crocodile tooth, and my favorite find of the day was a killer three-toed horse tooth! I'm gonna go rest my back now
  19. Megalodon

    Hi everyone, I’m new to this, so I need some help. I originally purchased a small megalodon tooth from a reputable seller earlier this year, so I’m not worried about it. I just purchased two decent size ones yesterday at a gun show. I’m almost positive that the broken one is real, but I’m mainly curious if the other one is real or has been restored. It’s 4 9/16 inches, and I paid $60 for it. The broken one is 4 15/16 inches, and I paid $30 for that one. Thanks!
  20. Dad Needs Help

    Hey guys, my 6 year old son is incredibly into dinosaurs, other prehistoric animals, and, more recently, megalodon. He's said, for about the past 6 months, that he wants to be a paleontologist when he gets older. I'd like to continue to foster his love of science, biology, and paleontology by taking him on some fossil hunting trips and digs up and down the east coast. However, I have no idea where to begin. Any recommendations on some great places to go within about 5 hours of Richmond, Va? Also are there any places in the US where you can actually go and dig, find, and potentially keep legitimate dinosaur fossils or are all of those sites closed and/or you are unable to keep. Thank you
  21. Megs inlaid with pyrite?

    Hey All, Up to this point I have mostly been personally hunting for megs and whatever other fossils Calvert Cliffs will offer. However recently I have been searching online to purchase a few larger megs that are not possible for me to find. One thing I noticed is there seems to be a growing number of megs "inlaid with pyrite". It gives the fossil a gold/silver/ appearance. on the enamel. These megs are not typically cheap or small. There are many 5 and 6 inch megs with pyrite and I see some selling for $1,000 USD +. My question is: nothing about the "inlaid with pyrite" is natural, right? It is essentially "restoration", like polishing? And second, to each their own, but are people paying a premium for this "look"? Or is it mainly a way to restore/disguise damaged teeth? If the megs are selling then good for the vendors however I understand restoring or even polishing teeth (as long as the vendor is upfront). But I just found the pyrite be an odd practice in the world of megs. Thanks!
  22. Hello, I was hoping some of the experts here could please provide me some feedback on my megalodon tooth. I purchased this about 15 years ago or so at the Tucson Gem and Mineral show while I was attending college at U of AZ. I've moved several times since then and have unfortunately lost the receipt and can't recall from what dealer I purchased it. Please let me know what you all think based on the photos. Thanks!
  23. Just purchased this amazing colored Caribbean Megalodon tooth.
  24. @Cris and I set out again to some trusty shark tooth hunting sites! For some reason, we both weren't very confident about the potential finds when we left for the site. Gladly, we were proven wrong, and the Fossil Gods blessed us with some grear fossils! But hey, all fossils are great no matter what, right?
  25. I got out with a friend to do a little fossil hunting a couple days ago...The weather was incredibly hot, but we managed to pull some nice stuff out of the creek we were hunting. We were hitting a middle Miocene site. I got a nice little dolphin tooth, a three-toed horse teeth, shark teeth (megs, makos, snaggletooth, etc) and a bunch of other cool stuff. Here's the video of the hunt: If you don't want to watch a video, here's pics: A Delphinodon tooth. A nice little megalodon tooth. A killer little point! (Note: this creek is a non-navigable waterway, not state land. A tiny megalodon tooth. Another juvenile megalodon tooth! Snaggletooth in the screen. Thanks for looking! -Cris
