  1. I have this megalodon tooth and I was wondering if if it is real or not. Please help.
  2. Shark Tooth Identification Help

    Hi, I recently bought this tooth from a friend, but I am uncertain which species it belongs to. The root is very thin with great white characteristics, but the lack of serrations on the blade is more like a mako. My best guess is that it is a Giant White Shark (Charcharodon Plicatitis). It measure 2.75 inches. The last 2 photos show the tooth in comparison to a Great White tooth on the right side and a Mako Shark tooth on the left side of the tooth in question. What do you believe it is? Thank you for helping me out.
  3. Dug this little guy out today from same deposit as Sharktooth Hill location ( Mid. Miocene ). What I would like to know is this from a juvenile or a small posterior adult tooth. It is prepped labial side showing. Thanks for your insights.
  4. Picked this up a little while ago. It isn't the prettiest tooth, but the manner in which new caledonia teeth are found has always intrigued me.
  5. Repairing a broken meg tooth

    Hello, I bought this megalodon tooth some time ago. I let it fall on the gound recently and now it is broken. I managed to find most of the missing pieces and started to put some glue. Is it possible to restore it ? Best regards,
  6. Hello everybody So this is a question not directly regarding fossils, but I feel this is nevertheless the right place. Is there any information on how big the teeth of modern great white sharks can get? For Megalodon there is a great amount of information regarding the size of the teeth. But for modern great whites I only find information about the size of the whole shark. I would like to make a small display with my 5.64 inch Meg tooth and a modern great white. I was able to get a 2.4 in modern white shark tooth. But I dont know if this is big or average. Thanks for your help
  7. Some of my megs

    I have acquired a very small collection of Meg Teeth over the years. Nothing fantastic collection wise. I feel I have managed to acquire a nice tooth or 2 with some that are probably fairly common. 1st one I will post is the 1st bone valley meg I ever acquired. It's small but the color is striking to me. No point and the serrations are worn, but it always catches the eye.
  8. Doing alright since I moved down to FL! No more dinosaur footprints down here, but there is an abundance of teeth!
  9. A visit to a cool SW Florida location Found a bunch of small teeth, a really nice shark vert, a fat Meg, a good size Mako, and maybe a Beardog canine? Can anyone confirm that one?! Anyone know? Good day hunting!
  10. A former 4-Her of mine found this and knew I liked fossils so he sent it my way. It's a fairly large partial skull. From what I have read on here, I imagine it is bison bison as opposed to bison antiquus. The tips of the horns are 22 inches apart and if you tie a string between the tips it is exactly 2 inches above the skull. It isn't complete like a lot of the others they have found, but I really like it. The strange thing I am curious about is the hole in the forehead. He thought it might be a bullet hole, but I would think it would have done more damage than just break the surface of the skull off. Plus, it being fossilized I would think it would predate guns in the area? Not sure on how long fossilization/mineralization takes. If I had to guess I would figure at some point in its time in the Red, it hit something and caused it to breakoff the plate right there. Of course it could always be cause of death trauma, but again I would think it would have damaged the area below the surface as well. Anyway thought I would share. I have also attached some of my Megalodon teeth I have acquired. A couple of nice ones and one big one that was polished and cheap.
  11. So I was hunting for sharks teeth in my special secret spot not too far from home and I found something very unusual. In this area but not this specific honey hole, I have found fossil (deer bones, deer teeth, muskrat jaws, sand tiger shark teeth, Hemis, Bulls, Lemons, Meg pieces, one beat up small Meg, Mako teeth, and many broken larger shark tooth roots with large cusps on them. I know that cusped teeth are not common in Florida only really the sand tigers have them. Now I know what some people are going to suggest this tooth is. (I have posted a similar tooth to this one before asking for Identification). However this find has excited me so much. This is by far the nicest tooth to come from my special spot and I'm pretty sure its not a Chub Megalodon. Please share this with anyone who can give me a truly positive answer on what this tooth really is. Of all the Megatoothed shark teeth I have found this one is now my most unique. The area that this came out of is very under researched. All maps I have of it state Miocene with notes saying that the area is very data barren and that the sediment is mixed. I'm digging into the clay most of the time here and the colors are usually amazing since the tannin from the river hasn't touched some of these teeth yet. I want all of you'r honest opinions on this tooth. The cusps are well defined with a thick root and a thin tooth. This is also the second tooth of similar size that I have found here with the same cusps.
  12. Memorable hunt FL

    I had a pretty decent hunt recently. The highlight was bending over to pick up a section of mammoth tooth and as I was spotting the arrowhead less than 12" away.
  13. Megalodon hunting in Baja California

    Giant sharks south of Ensenada American fossil hunter returns his finds to Baja By Daniel Powell, San Diego Reader, Sept. 11, 2019 https://www.sandiegoreader.com/news/2019/sep/11/feature-giant-sharks-south-ensenada/ Yours, Paul H.
  14. Land site near Venice FL Just the root was exposed. I wish I took a pic but I didn't think it was much when I pulled on it! It was like the sword in the Stone!!
  15. English Meg number 2!?!?

    Well following on from my post yesterday, I headed down to the same beach after work again. This time with no lightning or heavy rain to worry about. Started scanning the shingle picking up a few smaller teeth, the plan was to head up the cliffs maybe 500 yards and check at the base of them as this is where the better teeth are normally located. However, upon getting there, the cliffs were clearly not safe with many parts having overhanging material! My concerns were soon confirmed when a huge section came down a bit further down the beach. No tooth is worth getting buried for, so I soon changed to looking about halfway down the beach in the red crag material where you get rarer teeth some with really nice patterns. 5 minutes later I found this, a gorgeous 70mm Meg tip! This one was a lot less worn than the usual ones but unfortunately not complete! None the less I was still very happy! No further teeth and with darkness closing in I left happy again! Thanks for reading everyone!!! (Dear moderators, is there anyway you can rotate the photos? I am unable to! Thanks!!)
  16. English Megalodon!

    Had a quick trip down to my local beach after work. We have had massive storms along with large spring tides so the red crag cliffs have taken a battering. Dodging heavy rain, thunder and lightning. Found nothing of major significance for an hour and was getting soaked through so decided to head back to the car with my tail between my legs. Walking along and this was just lying on the shingle! 95mm long just sitting there!!! My first complete Meg. Needless to say I was rather happy! Thanks for reading!
  17. French Meg tooth

    Hi, I just brought this shark tooth. It was labelled as shown in the first picture, can anyone see any restoration or any other problems.
  18. My diving day was filled with technical difficulties. But after a frustrating morning I dove down to a fossil rich spot. I had to wait a bit to get back in due to tide changes, but this mammoth tooth was sitting right there for the taking!
  19. Went with a friend. Of all the shark tooth hunts I've gone on, only found small stuff. Well this one day I got a few Megs, I think eight Makos, and a couple broke small Megs! Best hunt so far!!! I'm liking living in Florida so far! Having much better fossil hunting luck then I did when I lived in Connecticut!
  20. My friend joined me for a weekend of black water diving. She found a couple massive heart-breaker megalodon teeth her very fist time! Perfect conditions all weekend long made it a great time on the water.
  21. I want to get my brother a great gift, he's amazing. He loves everything dinosaur and has a huge interest in fossils. He has a very small collection, but nothing like what I'm looking at. I've seen a couple of nice looking Megalodon teeth fossils online, but I don't know if they're authentic, if they've been repaired, or if I'm going to end up burning a hole in my pocket for something that's not worth the price. The first photos are for one that is 3.8 inches. The second is 4.4 inches. Thanks in advance!
  22. Back again! My fossil hunting partner and I have found a killer spot here in North Florida. We've found a collection of things thus far (left to right)-- partial meg (would have been a pretty decent size), juvenile meg, dugong rib (with feeding damage, found next to juv meg), a shark tooth I can't identify (serrated), and an unidentifiable bone. We've also found turtle shell, lemon shark teeth, whale vert and lots of bone! Any ideas what the ID of smaller tooth and bone are?
  23. 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!
  24. Good Morning everyone, I have a toddler who recently got very much into dinosaurs and fossils which eventually brought back all my childhood afflictions and memories to same. We stopped my a small fossil shop near Austin where we both went crazy with all the variety. Needless to say he got some very nice, small items. I spent quite a lot on a few pieces with the hype and childhood yearn to always have in possession a few Real items. Upon our arrival at home and in closer inspection as well as researching online, I'm not sure if I purchased authentic fossils. PLEASE HELP ME! My first post with is a Megalodon Tooth that he said was fused on a crack. I’ll post some others thereafter.
  25. Venice scuba finds

    Had a nice day of diving off Venice. Lots of broken and small teeth, but the highlights were definitely this nice 4” and chunky 5.5”.
