  1. Good day, I was given this meg tooth to add to my collection of teeth I find in a South Africa. Initially I thought the root was incomplete but I’ve since noticed the root has two symmetrical dimples on the top unlike any other tooth I have, any help with identifying why this is would be greatly appreciated. regards Pamar.
  2. After the rain

    Went out this morning with @jcbshark for a land hunt. Walking and talking and playing in the mud puddles takes me back to yesterday year. It is messy but the rains remove dirt and dust, making the fossils more visible. Not too many finds for me, 10 little shark teeth, a mako, a distressed Meg and a very large tilly. Jeff definitely has sharper vision but I respond with unvarnished luck. The Meg is a little distressed but at 3.5 inches, an outstanding root, and good olive green color, I am not complaining. Thanks Jeff
  3. Cape Town Megalodon

    I was given this Megalodon tooth that comes in just under 2”. It was found along Cape Towns West Coast and will make a nice addition to my own finds. regards Pamar. I believed the root to be broken but noticed two symmetrical dimples on the top - I haven’t seen this on meg teeth before does anyone know what they are?
  4. This Cuban meg is not perfect, they rarely are, but it’s one of my favorites. The color is insane, one of a kind Cuban fire. 4.31”
  5. Hey guys, This tooth was recently purchased by a family member and they gave it to me as a Christmas present. They don't know much about fossils and thought it was the real deal. However soon after getting my hands on it I could tell it was a fake or at least partially a fake. The root was too big and it smelled kind of strange. I didn't have the heart to tell my family member that it was fake. It had only been in the draw around 10 days and it literally started falling apart. At this point we tried to contact the seller as they had listed it as a real genuine tooth (they mentioned small restorations but not that the entire root was fake). I didn't get a reply and this angered me as it wasn't cheap. It cost over £400. The guy is still selling fakes and people are buying them. I don't want anyone to feel as disappointed as I did. He even has a fake tooth on there right now. It's frustrating because it ruins it for everyone else who is interested in collecting real fossils. As mentioned the whole root was fake and was like a pink putty. After poking around more the whole thing crumbled in my hand. Even the tooth itself had strange white stuff embedded in it and started to chip off. I'm sure many of you are great at spoting fakes but perhaps this could help a new member or someone who's not sure about these kind of things. Thanks for reading!
  6. Decided to spend a couple minutes searching some of my favourite spots alone Big Bay beach in Cape Town and came away with some megalodon teeth fragments,a mako and a whale eardrum. If anyone wants clearer pictures or wants to see some of my other finds from searching this months feel free to pm. regards Pamar.
  7. We Found a Big Blue Megalodon Tooth!

    This was such a fun hunt y'all! Cris and I went to a site we haven't hunted since our second ever fossil hunt together, which was YEARS ago! This was a place where Cris buried me in dugong bones because we found so many! The trip back to this site was quite successful. I found an amazing tooth, Cris steals it and hides it... It was a great time! Check our the video if you are interested and have some time
  8. River Diving Northeast FL

    Hi everyone, I recently moved up to Fernandina Beach this fall. I've been having decent luck finding fossils along spoil piles on islands and beaches. But as an avid diver, I'd like to take it underwater this spring/summer. The only fossil diving I've done so far is out of Venice and some snorkeling in the rivers in Central Florida. I know that the current is ripping through the St. Mary's and St. John's and it is a blackwater dive, but I've heard of people diving them for meg teeth. I've got my boat and all my dive gear here waiting for the water temp to warm up. This is shaping up to be a mild winter so that may not be too long from now. Can anyone give tips on what to look for along the river? Should I be watching my depth finder for drop offs? Any tips for once I'm in the water to find the fossil beds? I don't expect anyone to give up their spots but a little guidance would be greatly appreciated. I know the hunt is half the fun. Also, if anyone is looking for a dive partner, let me know! Happy hunting, Anthony
  9. Best Shark Tooth Finds of 2018!

    Hey TFF members! So big news, I hit 1,000 subscribers on YouTube which was a big goal for me, so I'm happy to have made it! Thanks to everyone who has checked out my videos, it really does mean a lot. I put together a video of some of my favorite shark tooth hunting moments since I started making videos about 6 months ago. This one is full of action, I promise! Give it a watch if you are interested and have some time
  10. Good day to everyone! Thought I’d share some the teeth found on Milnerton and Big Bay beach here in South Africa. Any help identifying would be appreciated - I’m still relatively new so the more worn and broken teeth have me clueless. More pictures to follow!
  11. Picked this 4.60” Caribbean Megalodon tooth up from a member of the Forum a few months ago. Beautiful colors.
  12. Megalodon or Great White Tooth?

    This tooth was found in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It measures to about 1.5 inches. The shape of the tooth was interesting and unlike what I had seen previously, so I asked around and was told it was most likely a tooth from a Megalodon, however I remained skeptical due to its size. I would like to know what animal this tooth came from. Thank you in advance.
  13. Hello fellow fossil hunters and merry Xmas! I am a fossil hunter in northeast Florida and here am town until Thursday this week and would love to do some hunting and meet some hunters in the area. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. I have heard that the construction sites in the Venice and Parrish area have been quite rewarding. And any time you all are in the jacksonville area please feel free to hit me up for some hunting on my turf! I found this meg 2 weeks ago (my first meg!!!)
  14. Look guys... not every fossil hunting trip can be insane! This trip was not as plentiful for fossils as our usual videos, but man was it fun!
  15. Hey guys! Our buddy Jake (DALLMYD on YouTube) hit us up to take him on his first ever Megalodon Shark Tooth Hunt! So we took him out a couple weeks ago and did our best to make sure he had a successful day! We ended up with some pretty awesome finds by the end of it. Sounds like he's hooked and will be coming back to hunt fossils again. You'll notice a change in the quality on this video. Jake let us use a lot of their footage for ours as well, so huge thanks to him and his camera man Justin for that!
  16. Merry Christmas to me

    With the recent rains we’ve had here in SW Florida most of my normal spots this time of year are too deep and swift to be productive. Having to switch gears into summertime hunting has its perks tho if you have the chance. Didn’t find a lot today but had the opportunity to get out with @Shellseeker and got a nice little stocking stuffer a hair under 4 inches. As always was a pleasure to get out with you Jack
  17. This is not a perfect tooth but it’s all natural and massive. It has a gorgeous mottled blue and yellow color. I’m mostly interested in: crinoid specimens, shark and mammal teeth, and non-Utah trilobites. I’m also happy to look at other offers that don’t fit the above list.
  18. Calvert Cliffs 2018

    So i dont post all the time anymore but as we approach the end of the year i always like to organize my finds and do a calendar. Well here are my finds for 2018 not a bad year and a found my benedini which is the rarest of the rare for Calvert. If anybody is interested in a calendar let me know i'm all done except for December still trying to find a couple more good finds! Hope everybody had a great 2018 and here is to an awesome 2019!!!!

  20. Hey Guys, I have been busy lately so my participation on the forum has gone down. I hope I can get be back online more during the summer. But today, I have got a question: Where is the youngest Otodus (Carcharocles megalodon) known? A lot of places seem to say the meg went extinct in the Pleistocene but a paper I read seemed to revise this to the latest Pliocene (2.6 million years ago was their number) using some sort of mathematical sorcery. What I want to know is, where are the megs? They should be extremely rare but present in late Pliocene Marine strata. The you youngest megs I’ve seen are from the Pisco which can get to 3 million years ago. Anyone have any younger, or heard of any younger? I would assume that such formations of that exact age are rare, so it would not surprise me if there are no younger megs. I’m just curious.
  21. Interesting story. https://riverheadlocal.com/2018/12/14/local-teacher-finds-likely-fossilized-shark-tooth-on-baiting-hollow-beach/
  22. Otodus megalodon

    Has anyone heard of Carcharodon megalodon categorized as "Otodus megalodon"? I saw the following GSU abstract and related news articles: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm18/meetingapp.cgi/Paper/419391 https://eos.org/articles/extinct-megatoothed-shark-may-have-been-warm-blooded https://www.foxnews.com/science/megalodon-may-have-gone-extinct-for-shocking-reason The authors use “Otodus megalodon” to refer to Megs. Curious as to the source. I’ve not seen this convention. Is this emerging? Contested?
  23. Hey y'all! @Cris and I went out for another Megalodon Shark tooth hunt and I am happy to say the Fossil God's decided to bless me greatly, but unfortunately did not decide to bless Cris Now our friendship is on the line but I guess it is okay because I have fossils. Bahahaa! Check out the video if you're interested and get some time and if you wanna watch Cris try to steal my fossils. Such great times!
  24. I have this tiny shark tooth in my collection from America, but it kinda looks like a tiny, worn meg?
