  1. I am looking to buy similar Megalodon Tooth with No Repairs/Restorations. Here is a listing that sold recently. I am attaching photos. How much do you think the fair value of this one.- Appreciate your thoughts. Thank you.
  2. Hello Everyone, I've been busy with the kayak and doing some hiking to boot. Funny thing is .. you never know what you are going to just walk right up on sitting pretty after a low tide falls away. 3 mile-ish hike there and back with three miles of paddling .... (this guy was lying in the middle of it) Probably has been buried under the soft sand waiting just beneath the surface. Just shy of 6 inches I love it .. warts and all. In situ ... In hand .. Some really great Carcharhinus teeth lately ... they haven't been jet black either which is a nice change. I've got a few that I haven't scanned yet but they were almost white .. some with caramel colors. My favorite finds so far. 'cuspidata' ? ... Pliocene perhaps ... ? I'm never quite sure with these. Mastodon molar bit .... The weather has been particularly nice lately with a swift breeze and lower humidity. It can literally feel like a desert out there. Hot as heck ! Not everyone survives ..... Cheers, Brett
  3. I found this listed as having no restoration. The back looks totally real to me - too much damage to be restored. The root and edges look fine to me as well, but something about the enamel just below the bourlette seems off. I may just be seeing things as the hydration cracks look real, but figured I should ask here before buying. Restoration can be tricky to spot sometimes.
  4. What do you guys think? I thought great white but this root is throwing me off.
  5. We got out for another dirt road hunt here in Florida the other day which turned out to be pretty successful. We found a few nice little teeth, some with matrix still attached (which I love). It was HOT outside, though! We had to leave the AC and vehicle running, then just hop out anywhere that looked good and shoot right back to the vehicle. It had to be in the 90s, but with the humidity, the heat index definitely made it feel even hotter...We also had a dodge a nasty little thunderstorm which is typical for Florida when it's that hot outside. For those of you who don't want to watch a vid, here's a snap from it showing some of the shark teeth:
  6. Megalodon tooth

    From the album Fossil Collection

  7. Recently got my first Megalodon tooth, this one originating from I believe South Carolina. 4 5/16"
  8. Megalodon Teeth

    Hi, I am planning a trip to America and my 8yo son is megalodon tooth crazy ... where is the best place to go to search for them? I've heard South Carolina. Anything more specific? Does anyone have any advice please. It's a long trip for us and really want to make it worth his while! Thanks so much!
  9. Our trip to GMR

    So we finally made it out to GMR to do some hunting. We left Greensboro about 7 am and arrived around 9:15. We walked around for a little bit to scout some areas, and finally found a good starting point. It was slow at first, but we started making really good progress when I found a 2" goblin shark tooth. We continued on throughout most of the day finding tooth, after tooth, after tooth... We found several Meg fragments, some super nice great whites, mako's, 3 mosasaur teeth (the smaller round one might possibly be a crocodile but were not 100% sure), and quite a few belimnites. After we finished for the day we stopped by @powelli1's house so he could check out some of our finds. He's a great guy and has an absolutely amazing fossil collection. When I say he has 15,000 fossils in one room, I'm not exaggerating whatsoever... He helped confirm the ID's of some of our finds, and was kind enough to give us a tour of his collection in the process. After heading home we decided to photograph some of the nicer finds and count everything we brought back. All together we had 944 shark teeth, 3 mosasaur (except if that smaller round one is not a mosasaur tooth), 1 unidentified fish tooth, and 59 belimnites. Here's some photos of everything we found today.
  10. I found what I believe to be a rather interesting specimen in the form of a Megalodon tooth. I have never seen one this color, or, rather, no color at all! Do these come from albino sharks? Just kidding . I was up at my mom's house in St. Leonard helping to dig out some post holes for a new fence construction. After taking a short break, lo and behold this tooth pops up in the dirt pile from our excavations! I couldnt believe my eyes. Her house is a few miles inland from the coast of the western shore of the Chesapeake Bay. I thought this was a pretty unique find. For one, its the only tooth ive ever found not at a beach or the cliffs. And two, I've never seen a white or colorless fossilized shark tooth before! Uncommon, in my opinion. I was doing some reading and found that tooth colors of this nature occur when found in areas where there is a lot of groundwater running through. The ground water will leach the sediments and minerals back out of the tooth, leaving it colorless. Pretty interesting. This makes total sense. The area it was found is up on a hill where a lot of rainwater runs off and down a slope, there's got to be a lot of groundwater running through too. This makes my fourth Megalodon tooth found recently! Im so excited! Ive been finding some really cool teeth lately including a beautiful little smaller, cream colored Meg, some nice hastalises, and some of the biggest hemi's ive ever found. I'll have to do another trip report soon! Here are some pictures below of the colorless meg! -Toothman

  14. I just uploaded the first of many fossil hunting vids to my YouTube channel. I should be able to share a lot more of my fossil hunts this way from now on. We (@addicted2fossils and myself) were walking dirt roads in FL that have shell material dumped on them, with teeth mixed in. We also found tons of invertebrates (gastropods, bivalves, coral), calcite crystals, whale bone, a nice great white shark tooth, a nice meg, lots of partials, etc. For those of you who do not want to watch a video, here's some pics from the hunt:
  15. Shark Tooth ID (meg?)

    Hi guys and gals, Looking through some of my teeth from the past couple of trips and was looking to get an ID on this tooth. Is it a little meg? Thanks!
  16. These just arrived today. A Mosasaur (Prognathadon) root and tooth -- I read about fake roots. How can one tell? A Carcharocles Megalodon which is just under 6" at 5.91" Hope you all enjoy My second image will have to be another topic
  17. Megalodon Tooth?

    Hi everyone, I just returned from a morning beach hunting trip and found what I'm thinking is a small meg. I'm not entirely sure though, because nearly every other larger tooth I've found here has been identified as angustidens. It was found on Wrightsville Beach/ Wilmington, North Carolina. I'm thinking meg because of the lack of cusps. Anyone?
  18. Hi everyone, I was just seeking a little information on the relationship between the Megalodon, Angustidens, Auriculatus, and modern Great White sharks. Clearly the modern Great Whites are the most recent subspecies, but what about before them? Was Megalodon first with each shark decreasing in size until today's Great Whites? Did Angustidens come before or after Auriculatus? Any kind of clarification would be appreciated!! Thanks

  21. I bought this megalodon tooth yesterday and i saw some small paterns looks like a fabric on it's worn surface. I never seen like this on megalodon tooth surface before... There's someone know about this? +this tooth is from South Carolina, USA 5" size Thanks for your help.
  22. I was supposed to go on a guided trip to Big Brook yesterday, but heavy overnight rain and flash flood warnings caused the group to cancel the trip. Bummer. Anyway, I am looking for advice on what equipment I should take along, minimal is best, and different locations along the Brook. Thank you!
  23. Hi there, Well, I bought my first kayak a week ago and hauled it out onto the river for the first time on Friday. Suffice to say I am glad I planned my trip out with the tide and back 'in' with the tide. The river apparently runs at a good clip, and I also was reminded that the brain will play funny tricks on you when you are moving in a current and don't have good nearby landmarks for reference. I was convinced that a dredge across the river was moving upstream as I was furiously paddling to overtake the slow moving beast and make it to the far shore. The guys on the dredge must've had some quizzical looks on their faces ... and a good chuckle ? I did eventually fall downstream to the opposite bank sans current and realize that the dredge was firmly planted the whole time. haha The 1.5 mile-ish paddle only took 30-40 min going out. I hiked for quite a bit on the banks before I found a promising exposure. The layers were quite interesting, these clay balls accumulating and actively being created on the river banks were cool looking in the wall. I did eventually find what I was looking for ... mind you .. I must have been practically standing on this Meg the first time I passed the exposure. I only found it two hours later on my way back .. just sitting there in the sand. A few of the teeth and a fish vert that I kept ..
