    I posted photos of Mrs.SA2's 1st meg of the new year on @RCW3D's Potomac River post from 1/20/18. Today, @MarcoSr, Mrs.SA2 and I wanted to try some hunting in the sun today instead of the feet freezing water and ice we had yesterday, so we went to a place we knew would have all day sun. When we put the boat in there wasn't any ice on our side of the river and only a little bit on the beach. Weather forecast was mid-60s and mostly sunny, perfect for late January in VA/MD. We motored to our planned starting point and started walking. Unfortunately, we immediately found lots (and I do mean A LOT) of footprints all over the beach. We kept on going and found a few teeth to start. Being out with MarcoSr is always a great time because I learn so much and have great conversations about stratigraphy. Here is my 1st tooth of the day, it's right at 1 inch, but ensured we didnt get skunked on the day. The rest of the day consisted of a few small teeth found plus a lot more footprints along the beach. At least it was sunny and warm. Didn't take an hour for us all to come out of a couple of layers of clothing. As we got a couple of hours past low tide, Mrs.SA2 did it again, and found her 2nd megalodon in as many days. She brushed a few leaves away from the gravel/cobble and there it was, in all its glory. I'm surprised she let me get a couple of photos before she grabbed it. Once we got a couple hours after low tide, the wind changed directions and picked up in intensity. Neither of these things were forecast and it started pushing the ice from the other side of the river, towards us. Didn't take long and there was large ice flow pinching us off from getting back to the ramp and I had to do some serious navigating to get around / through it. @RCW3D would have been proud as we once again plowed ice, and this ice was much thicker than yesterday. Some of it was 6-8 inches thick and obviously, we avoided that and chose our way through the thinner, slushy stuff. Here is a photo of the ice flow on our side of the river causing us to motor out to the middle to try and get around it. Good thing MarcoSr and Mrs.SA2 trust my boating skills. Here is the boat ramp after we pulled the boat out. Remember, there was NO ice there or anywhere near us when we launched. I busted up and pushed all the ice around the ramp with the boat so we could pull out. The dark spot in the middle of the right side of the photo is a full size duck blind that got ripped off its posts and carried away by the ice. Here is a photo of "our" side of the river after the ice flow moved in on us. The ramp is at the white building on the right side. (Don't worry folks, there are several other boat ramps within a 20 minute boat ride that we could tie up to and go get the truck and trailer.) Cheers, SA2 and Mrs.SA2

    My smallers megalodon from Antwerp, Belgium
  5. Hello everyone, I've had an idea for a while now to write and illustrate a guide on the fossil shark species of SC and how to find their remains. I really am not sure where I would like to begin, but my brainstorming process apparently involves a certain amount of doodling. These pages represent studies for how I might like certain parts of the guide to look, though all text will be typed in the final product. I am looking for any feedback - critique of the artwork, topics you'd like to see covered, additional information, etc., etc. enjoy! Here's a page that started for a mock-up for the specific species Hemipristis serra. I also drew a representation of Isurus desori on the bottom... A page dedicated to Carcharocles/Otodus megalodon (as I imagine him) And a portion of a simple tooth guide (not really sure how to incorporate this yet) - And thats most of what I've got so far. What do ya'll think?
  6. I wanted to show you all my best personal finds so far. About two years ago I found a complete, beautiful megalodon on an active construction site in the Belgian Antwerp Area. Finds like this are extremely rare and seldom found in one piece.
  7. AntWerpen

    Hey im new! Im going on a trip to Antwerpen soon and my goal is to find Megalodon teeth/shark teeth. BUT i dont know where in Antwerpen i should hunt. Can you guys give me a tip or something helpfull?
  8. Florida meg collection

    Just wanted to post a pic of my current display worthy megs. All from Florida and all except one little posterior which was mislabeled as a tiger and I couldn’t pass up for 1$ are personal finds lol. A mix of dive, land and creek finds and quite a few years in the making. Not as big as some folks in the Carolinas regularly find, a “big” tooth to me is 3 inches plus but the colors of bone valley sure do make for a nice display
  9. Bulk Megalodon Teeth

    Hello, I have been fixing Megalodon shark teeth for a little while now and I was wondering if anyone knew of someone that has a lot of big broken Megalodon teeth for sale. I have checked on eBay but everyone there is a little expensive. Thanks for any help
  10. Shark tooth ID please

    Hi! I was wondering if anyone would be able to help identify a shark tooth I have. I assumed it was a megalodon but it doesn’t look like the others I have. It also feels thicker and a bit heavier than some of the meg teeth of similar size. I hope these pictures are clear enough. If any more are needed let me know and I will take more. thanks in advance for all the help!!
  11. 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.
  12. Hello all! I'm wondering, if there are any fossil sites in the UK with fossil shark teeth. I know in UK there are tons of places with ammonites, but what about shark teeth? As long as it's shark teeth, I want to find it. But if there's megalodon teeth in UK, I'd spend days looking for one. Any ideas where to find shark teeth in UK? Thanks for all replies!
  13. Some shark teeth ID

    Today, my package arrived. A pile of 1000 shark teeth have arrived and there are some Megalodon teeth and some Makos and Angustiden and some tiger shark teeth. But I have a few I am not sure about. Is this a Megalodon tooth? I have no information about where these are found but could this be a Angustiden or even a chubutensis?
  14. I'm putting these two teeth up for a friend. He bought them years ago from a large auction site, that's all the information i know. Here are the pictures Tooth 2
  15. Christmas on the Cooper

    Spent the Christmas weekend on the Cooper River and really had a great time.

    My best megalodon so far, found in Antwerp, Belgium.
  17. Finally making some progress at our Slow Curve lot. My son pulled out the first meg! Also found a few nice hastalis and planus as well as a bird sacrum.
  18. This was one of the most difficult restorations i have ever done for color. The more unusual the color of a tooth, the longer it takes to restore, but also the greater the reward. I porbably spent 2-3 hours painting this one. I hope you enjoy!
  19. Extraordinary Common Teeth

    Hey guys, I've been off the radar for awhile .. work you know .. been working on Siggraph for those of you who are familiar with software development. Just wanted to start a new topic here .. This one is right at 3.00" - 7.62cm C. carcharias Bahia Inglesa Formation South of Caldera Provincia Copiapo III Regio de Atacama Chile
  20. Hello everyone! I took my girlfriend on her first Fossil hunting adventure today and she is hooked! It started off very slow but she picked up a few little teeth then we ate lunch. Soon, we bagan to find the teeth we went all the way there for. We used waiders and walked down the beach, and she picked up a tooth and said “what’s this?” It was a fragment of a small megalodon tooth!!! I couldn’t believe it. What a great trip. Thanks for viewing. Below are our finds!
  21. Calvert Cliffs Calendar

    So i mentioned I was going to do a Calvert Cliffs Annual calendar to highlight my best finds from each month. Well I took all the pics and sent it off to the printer they will be ready in a week. This way when i'm too old and senile to hunt anymore I will be able to flip through the old calendars to remember when things were found. So without further ado here is the first of many years to come!! JANUARY FEBRUARY MARCH APRIL MAY JUNE JULY AUGUST SEPTEMBER OCTOBER NOVEMBER DECEMBER COVER
  22. Calvert Cliffs

    I live in Dallas and usually hunt the NSR. However, I had some airline miles and decided to fly to the Chesapeake Bay for the weekend. I probably could have waited for a chance to spend more time there, but eventually convinced myself it was a great way to end the year and told myself that I would find a Mako and Megalodon tooth. If I could do that, the trip would be worth it. I only had 24 hours there, but made the most of it. I'm at the airport now heading home, figured I would post my finds. Thanks to @paxhunter for the advice he gave me.
  23. Cuban Megalodon Shape

    Hi, I have this Megalodon tooth from Cuba and the shape is a little different than I've ever seen. It's a lower tooth at 5.24", can anyone give me insight on the shape of this tooth.
  24. Christmas Presents

    The holidays are here. I am running out of days. I have gone hunting 3 times between Sunday and today, in really cold temps for Florida. Today I am on a flight to Connecticut, then Atlanta, and South Carolina returning on the 26th. It will be great to see family and friends in cooler climates. Yesterday, I was at a new location for me, hunting with 2 fossil addicted friends. It was cool but not frigid and a lot of fun sharing stories and talking Florida fossils. One hunting buddy is a Florida Bone Valley Fossil/Meg/Artifact dealer. I met him 5-6 years ago when he invited me over to see his collection. There was a large Rhino tooth that I really loved, but felt was way beyond my budget. But every time I would visit his collection, I would envy that tooth. This year I decided to purchase that tooth... Step up to the plate for my Christmas present. It was plucked out of the Bone Valley phosphate mines in the mid 1980s and I know right where this beauty is going into my growing Florida Rhino collection. Those of you who are overly observant my have noted a Meg pointed to by my index finger. My friend may have thought he was overpricing the Rhino tooth, so he added a BV Meg as a Christmas present. I had a GREAT day yesterday. This one is a little dinged up but easy to get excited over. He purchases a lot of his inventory but he FOUND this one on private property. Think about that.. looking down and seeing this beauty. Happy Holiday to all my TFF friends. May you get the presents you desire!
